[03:38:12] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: I've got some free time coming up on Friday and want to make a start at testing the code you put in... but I've forgotten what it was! Can you please refresh my memory and point me to some specs?

[10:24:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm... rejection reason. don't bother checking it for utf8 compatibility though, don't care if it is or not. yall can live without using a poop glyph as a reason.
[10:38:50] <crutchy> but... poop glyph!!
[10:39:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> crutchy, become an editor and you can bitch

[17:42:09] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: strange... I cannot seem to do anything with the provided field. whenever I try and click in it, my focus gets immediately moved out of that field and back to the "Editor's Notes" field. Same when I try and select anything in the dropdown for Back/Hold/Quik and for the dropdown for 'Main Page', but that also holds for the main site, too.
[17:42:28] <Bytram> :/
[17:42:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> you using takyon's script by chance?
[17:44:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> cause i got no issues. has to be some extra stuff you got going on.
[17:45:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> smoke break
[17:49:30] <Bytram> nope. no script in use.
[17:50:04] <Bytram> I do have AdBlockPlus running and NoScript and a HOSTS file, but don't think any of that should be a factor?
[17:51:21] <Bytram> (sorry I missed your reply, was catching up on scrollback in another window)
[17:55:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, you definitely got something fucking things up though cause i made no javascript changes and that's the only thing that can move focus
[17:58:14] <Bytram> huh.
[17:58:31] <Bytram> well, I've seen the problem on the main site with the focus changes, too.
[17:59:11] <Bytram> for example, take a look at: https://soylentnews.org
[17:59:12] <aqu4>  ^ "3Chinese Tech Companies Hire 'Cheerleaders' To Motivate Programmers: SoylentNews Submission"
[17:59:54] <Bytram> when I click on the 'Dept' field, my focus is automatically shifted back to the "Editor's notes" text entry field.
[18:00:03] <Bytram> Ditto on the 'Main Page' dropdown
[18:00:34] <Bytram> ditto on the topic (currently: News) drop down.
[18:00:58] <Bytram> and also whenever I click in the 'Intro Copy' text entry field.
[18:01:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's something fucked in yer browser then. it takes javascript to change focus and our javascript wasn't touched.
[18:01:28] <Bytram> like I said, it's been like that for a while... I'm guessing about a month or so?
[18:01:36] <Bytram> could well be longer
[18:01:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> try chrome or some other browser, see if you have the same problem
[18:02:23] <Bytram> that might be tricky...
[18:02:33] <Bytram> I try and stay away from goog, so no chrome.
[18:02:45] <Bytram> don't have any interest in safari, same reason.
[18:02:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> opera then
[18:02:57] <Bytram> haven't used FF in about a year.
[18:03:08] <Bytram> hmmm, isn't that Vivaldi, now?
[18:03:14] * TheMightyBuzzard shurgs
[18:03:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> no idea
[18:03:22] <Bytram> nor have I used IE on this box.
[18:03:39] <Bytram> I'd use lynx.exe but it doesn't support scripting.
[18:03:53] * Bytram goes to look for opera
[18:04:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> afk a few while you hunt down the issue
[18:04:31] <Bytram> k
[18:04:35] * Bytram loads: https://soylentnews.org
[18:04:41] <Bytram> oops, not that one!
[18:04:52] <Bytram> http://www.opera.com
[18:04:53] <aqu4>  ^ "3Download Opera for computers - Opera Software"
[18:05:50] <Bytram> this looks useful: http://www.opera.com
[18:05:51] <aqu4>  ^ "3Thank you - Opera Software"
[18:09:20] * Bytram allows opera to run scripts
[18:09:30] * Bytram launches LiveHTTPHeaders
[18:09:48] * Bytram selects generator tab and opts in for all features
[18:10:03] * Bytram clicks link and watches urls scroll by.
[18:10:23] * Bytram grabs this link: http://get.geo.opera.com.global.prod.fastly.net
[18:11:03] * Bytram creates a dir in which to place the D/L and creates a batch prog to retrieve it, there.
[18:11:08] * Bytram launches D/L
[18:11:34] <Bytram> looks like it should finish in less than 20 minutes
[18:12:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> ye gads
[18:13:41] <Bytram> yup.
[18:16:21] * Bytram gonna take a break, maybe even a nap.
[19:15:59] * Bytram curses
[19:16:33] <Bytram> installing opera overrode all my PC prefs for a browser -- opera now owns everything HTMLish
[19:22:14] * Bytram goes into palemoon and tells it to be my default browser.
[19:22:36] <Bytram> hmm, ASSOC and FTYPE show no changes in assignments
[19:23:08] * Bytram closes Pale Moon
[19:24:50] <Bytram> while I'm at it, let's check out how submissions editor page behaves under opera
[19:26:13] <Bytram> interesting... no automagic deflection from selection/text-entry fields back to the Editor's Notes field. suggests I'm seeing a browser/addon issue with pale moon
[19:26:24] * Bytram closes opera
[19:26:32] * Bytram launches pale Moon
[19:38:13] <Bytram> strange... ASSOC and FTYPE suggest that Opera gets all the HTML stuff, but I just launched foo.htm from CMD.EXE and it loaded up as a tab in an already launched copy of Pale Moon. ?!!?!
[19:38:24] <Bytram> beats me
