I copied the window for your fun...


<Rakso> Hi... is this Kai Budde?
<KaiB> hi and yes
<Rakso> Hi... I'm Oscar Tan, the moderator of Beyond Dominia
<Rakso> Just wanted to tell you in person (or as close as I'll get)
<Rakso> that I was the guy who said your Trix decks sucked on the Dojo
<Rakso> and that I'm still eating my words two years later :)
<KaiB> lol :)
<KaiB> well at that time almost everyone in that invit played trix
<Rakso> A group of Philippine RPGers actually made up a format where Revised and later cards were legal
<KaiB> i even played trix last year when there was only 1 necro lol
<KaiB> and went 3-0
<Rakso> And I caught myself saying Trix would be more stable than anything, even the fast Academy decks
<Rakso> We know, we know :)
<Rakso> Too bad Type I is temporarily shafted for the Invitational... wanted to see if Mikey P (who is active in the format) knew his control.
<KaiB> hehe
<KaiB> yeah, he played a big typ 1 sideevent in toronto
<Rakso> We heard.
<Rakso> His round 1 opponent was a friend of mine from Beyond Dominia
<Rakso> Stunned Mikey P and got game 1 because Mikey thought he was playing Keeper.
<Rakso> Guy was playing... Type I Turbo Land!
<KaiB> oh lol
<KaiB> yeah i saw that guy
<KaiB> but when i watched him he did not play a 2nd land lol
<Rakso> How was the game?
<KaiB> so that was not v interesting
<Rakso> Oh... right.
<KaiB> both games btw :(
<Rakso> Heard Zvi was watching and had fun
<Rakso> Must've boosted his confidence in that "Turbo land is the best in Extended" thing :)
<KaiB> lol
<KaiB> well it was after the EX day
<KaiB> and after his 5-0-1 his confidence was pretty much boosted to the max

well, all those lol just destroyed the respect I had for this guy. I mean, what's the point of looking like a real though guy (anybody saw the pictures in the Sideboard paper copy covering the Pro Tour he won... Chicago I think), and overabusing the worst expression ever created on IRC?

read Steve OMS's PTLA report from a couple years ago (on mtgword.) there are so many emoticons that it stopped me from ever wanting to read something by him again.

Remember that this is an IRC transcript. Smilies are disturbingly addictive and widespread there.

I don't remember seeing Kai around during the type one, but there were tons of people around, so I guess I just missed him.

Kind of embarrassing to have Kai see me when I was land screwed (that was probably while I was taking negator beats no less), and Zvi watch me get a game loss, but oh well.
