How do I display the text from IRC sessions? After mulling it over for a few days, I think I like this the best:
“Joshua thought about that for a few seconds.
(11:35:25)<JJones>: Look for the origin?
(11:35:40) <Frosty >: Always there is, a Master and an Apprentice.
Joshua smiled. Quoting Star Wars movies was a kind of geek short hand. It cut through the small talk and let you make your point with well established icons.”
Some characters are live and in person and interact with Joshua in meat space and some are seen only in IRC. Going to be interesting to see if I can make the ones in cyberspace as believable as the ones in real space. I suppose that would be even more realism at work. Because in real life it’s just like that.
