Introduction
Hmmm.....anyone notice that Gfo's interviews suck?
I did, and well I decided why not bring back my most famous project back from the day.... The Random Report

The only interviews that ask good questions.
I've gotten pG accused of cheating, Lordhawk dejudged, and Nantuko so jealous he stooped to making his own version!!!
So ladies and Flamers, I bring to you: The Random Report...

So for tonight's show I figured I'd bring you someone I've been constantly bashing err....questioning. Ever since our new flip rule I've been questioning the staff on if their useful or not and mostly Lamex. What does he do? lets find out. Lamex come on down

::crowd cheers, some get out 3D glasses and gaze at the kickass 3D action::

[Dec-09-06 - 19:43] <Craze> ok I guess for starters give me your name and where your from
[Dec-09-06 - 19:44] <Lamex> my nickname here is Lamex, am from the netherlands where i am a student
[Dec-09-06 - 19:44] <Craze> ah cool, so how do you pronounce Lamex
[Dec-09-06 - 19:44] <Craze> "Lame - ex"
[Dec-09-06 - 19:45] <Craze> cause thats what I read it as
[Dec-09-06 - 19:45] <Lamex> pretty much, in dutch there is a diff sound where the 'a' is
[Dec-09-06 - 19:45] <Craze> how would you pronounce it if you weren't dutch
[Dec-09-06 - 19:45] <Lamex> the way you just did..
[Dec-09-06 - 19:46] <Craze> ok

Topic One: Technical Duties

[Dec-09-06 - 19:46] <Craze> Question 1: I'll just dig right into it, what do you actually do in Magic-League?
[Dec-09-06 - 19:48] <Lamex> I am the Technical Director, taking care of the website. At the moment the website is in such a state a complete rewrite is needed. Which is what I am doing atm. I leave most of the bugs of the current website over to Koen
[Dec-09-06 - 19:48] <Craze> how long have you been working on the rewrite?
[Dec-09-06 - 19:49] <Lamex> quite a bit, but got a lot of other things to do as well so progress is kinda slow atm. Playing world of warcraft is not helping that much either
[Dec-09-06 - 19:51] <Craze> Well, I've been trying to get some info on your rewriting, but Gfo as well as other admins won't crack. When is this update gonna be finished? And what exactly should we be looking forward to on it?
[Dec-09-06 - 19:52] <Lamex> Well I just say what I been telling other people as well, The rewrite will be done when it is done. Simple as that. As well what to look forward to will be announced later when I'm in a further stage of the rewrite.
[Dec-09-06 - 19:52] <Lamex> However I can tell several new features will be added
[Dec-09-06 - 19:52] <Lamex> and a complete new layout
[Dec-09-06 - 19:54] <Craze> "done when its done?" Thats kinda cryptic. It might help if you had an estimation on how long it will take, I mean, its your only current Magic-League related project isn't it?
[Dec-09-06 - 19:54] <Lamex> well it is a very big project, and recently even lost a staff member who was supposed to work on it as well
[Dec-09-06 - 19:55] <Lamex> You cannot look at it being easy. I already have written an entire engine from the ground up to support all the new possible changes that will come in the future
[Dec-09-06 - 19:55] <Craze> yes, no ones questioning the skill level in it
[Dec-09-06 - 19:56] <Lamex> But if your really want an estimate I would say July 12th 3125 1pm 35m, 20s
[Dec-09-06 - 19:56] <Craze> ...
[Dec-09-06 - 19:56] <Lamex> I do not have an estimate
[Dec-09-06 - 19:56] <Lamex> nor will I tell you one because it will be wrongh
[Dec-09-06 - 19:57] <Craze> Ummm, I hope by the year 3125 we have the technoligy to just will a internet site rewrite into existance
[Dec-09-06 - 19:57] <Lamex> Razz
[Dec-09-06 - 19:57] <Lamex> I will try to speed it up, but I cannot make an estimate, hence why I am not doing it, just made that date up

And now a word from our sponsors

[Dec-09-06 - 19:59] <Craze> Alright just a general review so far, Koen's been handling your normal duties and you've been only working on this site rewrite, for a while now, thats not close to being done and that you have no idea when it will be?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:01] <Lamex> my normal duties? well there isn't really much site technical problems atm. Hardly none actually. All the coding on the features for the current site has been halted by quite a time already and pushed to the new website. Such as Swiss. I will still handle bugs on the current site but not any major, since I do not know the code well enough for that and it is terrible to maintain if you are not the author.
[Dec-09-06 - 20:01] <Lamex> I know you want to know when it will be finished, but even if I was close to being done I would still not give an ETA
[Dec-09-06 - 20:03] <Craze> alright so can you at least tell me how much is finished like, a percentage number? 50% 60%??
[Dec-09-06 - 20:03] <Lamex> I also am not handing out that information
[Dec-09-06 - 20:04] <Craze> ya ever see the anime where the characters kinda fall over after somebody says somthing either funny or shocking? I just did that
[Dec-09-06 - 20:04] <Lamex> rofl ok Razz
[Dec-09-06 - 20:04] <Lamex> I do watch anime Smile
[Dec-09-06 - 20:04] <Craze> ok, so since that was about as cold as turkey, I'll move on

Topic 2: Hobbies and Interests

[Dec-09-06 - 20:05] <Craze> Whats your favorite format of magic?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:05] <Lamex> vintage all the way
[Dec-09-06 - 20:05] <Craze> Ya know I don't see many vintage minis, much anymore...
[Dec-09-06 - 20:06] <Craze> How many minis do you host on a daily basis?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:06] <Lamex> I do have the time to run mini's Smile
[Dec-09-06 - 20:06] <Lamex> so no worries there
[Dec-09-06 - 20:06] <Craze> How many minis do you host on a daily basis?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:06] <Lamex> none
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Craze> again the fall over thing
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Lamex> I do not have the time for that
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Craze> [Dec-09-06 - 20:06] <Lamex> I do have the time to run mini's Smile
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Lamex> ermm typo, sorry
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Craze> again the fall over thing
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Lamex> Razz
[Dec-09-06 - 20:07] <Craze> ok, so what DO you do with your time?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:09] <Lamex> programming, got 3 active project atm, make a video for WoW of my guild there. Watch some anime, Play WoW, I go to college, I sleep and eat and that was about it. I wish I had some more time to play on my PS2, stil got 2 games to finish, both are at the end but don't got the time
[Dec-09-06 - 20:10] <Craze> ya know an ML admin addicted to WoW isn't exactly good for the league
[Dec-09-06 - 20:10] <Lamex> am not addicted, hardly play anyway
[Dec-09-06 - 20:10] <Lamex> used to play a lot
[Dec-09-06 - 20:11] <Craze> hmmm
[Dec-09-06 - 20:11] <Lamex> the programming projects and the work on the video takes up like 70% of my time
[Dec-09-06 - 20:11] <Lamex> and the video project is done soon
[Dec-09-06 - 20:11] <Craze> one of those projects is the rewrite, correct?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:11] <Lamex> yes

Topic 3: Magic-League

[Dec-09-06 - 20:13] <Craze> Ok, lately alot of new admins have entered the scene. Nikinight and Shyft-, what are your thoughts on the seem to be new approach to a more active staff?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:14] <Craze> Ok, lately alot of new admins have enter the scene. Nikinight and Shyft-, what are your thoughts on the seem to be new approach to a more active staff?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:14] <Lamex> Those are new judge admins, we had recently LordHawk stepping down, Wildcard and Djinn cannot be very active so there was the need for them. It is not my department but from what I have seen they are active and seem to be perfect for the job
[Dec-09-06 - 20:16] <Craze> Most of the old admins aren't really that active anymore, I know you can see them here alot, but since much of ML is run in the background its often hard to tell that Gerrardfo doesn't run this place alone. What message do you have for players feeling the staff's absence?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:18] <Lamex> We do a lot, might not be visible but we spend quite a lot of time on the League. If you cannot see what we are doing then does that mean we do nothing? I do not think so and im my opinion it is stupid to think that way..
[Dec-09-06 - 20:20] <Craze> People like visable results. Its not that background work means you don't do anything, it just means that if you can't show or don't give progress updates then you become invisable and thats not good. Players want to be kept in the loop, which is why I am bringing the Random Report back, I hope that it will serve as a efficent message of getting the players more of an insight of as of whats actually going on in this league.
[Dec-09-06 - 20:22] <Lamex> well if you work at a company the directors also will not tell you what is going unless something major happens. same way here, we will make updates and report when we feel like it. The league will keep running and no updates does not mean itis duying. Infact we are still growing a lot

Topic 4: Public Relations

[Dec-09-06 - 20:25] <Craze> Who would you meet if you had the oppertunity?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:26] <Craze> like from the league
[Dec-09-06 - 20:27] <Lamex> I have met most of the staff already including Wildcard while I was in San Diego. At the moment I would like to meet GerrardFo and Neo
[Dec-09-06 - 20:27] <Craze> Gfo is like 12
[Dec-09-06 - 20:27] <Craze> or 16 w/e
[Dec-09-06 - 20:28] <Lamex> rofl
[Dec-09-06 - 20:29] <Craze> I've always wanted to ask this question, Be honest, What league member would you deck if you could? And don't tell me no one cause I don't care how dettachted you get from here, theres always some person that you wanna punch in the face.
[Dec-09-06 - 20:29] <Craze> from annoyance or just random irritation
[Dec-09-06 - 20:29] <Lamex> can I include ex league members?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:29] <Craze> sure
[Dec-09-06 - 20:30] <Lamex> Aule
[Dec-09-06 - 20:30] <Craze> hahaha why?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:30] <Lamex> several reasons, will not state all but mainly causing a lot of problems
[Dec-09-06 - 20:30] <Craze> awww, fine. No juicy info as to why you would beat the shit out of Aule
[Dec-09-06 - 20:31] <Lamex> sorry Razz

[Dec-09-06 - 20:31] <Craze> Well I think I've run out of questions
[Dec-09-06 - 20:31] <Craze> anything you wanna add?
[Dec-09-06 - 20:33] <Lamex> please no one ask when the site will be done, as it will be done when it is done
[Dec-09-06 - 20:35] <Craze> lol ok
[Dec-09-06 - 20:35] <Craze> Well thanks for the interview
[Dec-09-06 - 20:36] <Lamex> btw you can expect a news post with some updates as soon as I get a major part done
[Dec-09-06 - 20:37] <Craze> cool beans

Well folks, that brings our show to a close. Give on last horah for our awsome guest: Lamex

::crowd does the wave and throws a beachball at him::

Whoa now. Until next time, I'm Craze and this is The Random Report.

/me is the most useless and non-active member of the league who does not run mini's, play magic, or handle issues.

/me wins.
