[00:23:41] <paulej72> I am ataking about the input and the label in Comments.pm 2412 and 2430
[03:32:19] <paulej72> TheMightyBuzzard: nevermind I was reading the code at the wrong indent level

[19:59:34] -!- janrinok has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[21:22:15] <paulej72> Bytram: are you around?
[22:29:40] <paulej72> Bytram: are you around?
[22:30:02] <Bytram> nope =)
[22:30:12] <Bytram> what can I do for you?
[22:30:47] <Bytram> paulej72: ^^^ I'm here... what's up?
[22:36:44] <paulej72> do we have a compiled list of current bugs
[22:36:56] <Bytram> not that I am aware of, sadly.
[22:37:19] <paulej72> we really need to get them into github then
[22:37:28] <Bytram> I understand the reasoning at the time, but I think we erred in not continuing to use github to keep track of bug reports.
[22:37:32] <Bytram> ninjad!
[22:38:11] <Bytram> I was thinking of doing that, but I find it hard to work solely from the screen with bug reports in disparate files...
[22:38:56] <paulej72> how so?
[22:39:16] <Bytram> that is why I was asking about adjusting the formatting when printing stories... I could quickly scan and highlight all reported defects, and then go back (using cid, or whatever) and compile a list of what has and has not been fixed
[22:39:52] <paulej72> OK. Ill work on the css for printing rignt now
[22:39:54] <Bytram> even with a 1920x1200 display, there's just not enough space on my screen for everything at a font sizre I can still read.
[22:40:02] <Bytram> many thinaks!
[22:40:14] <Bytram> hold on a sec...
[22:41:02] <Bytram> maybe a littlelonger
[22:42:29] * Bytram loads https://soylentnews.org
[22:42:41] * Bytram does page preview
[22:43:06] * Bytram sees things to remove:
[22:43:46] <Bytram> (1) extraneous list-item markers (solid bullet and open squares, though I thnk the latter are the chevron chars)
[22:43:52] <Bytram> (2) "Reply to This" link
[22:44:23] <Bytram> (3) Extra blank line between comment title and byline
[22:44:49] <Bytram> (4) Parent link
[22:46:09] <Bytram> and, at the very bottom of the page:
[22:46:23] <Bytram> (5) Prefs link
[22:46:32] <Bytram> (6) Moderator Help link
[22:47:39] <Bytram> (7) I can argue either way for including/omitting both the fortune text and the "Current Editor/Admin Sessions" block... For now, leave it in as it only appears once and can be mostly ignored.
[22:48:39] <Bytram> (8) I considered whether or not to include the user's sig; I think leave it in. If I really want to omit it, I can just temporarily reset my privs to suppress it.
[22:48:48] <Bytram> paulej72: ^^^ here's my list
[22:49:37] <Bytram> Unfortunately, I need to head out the door shortly and won't be back for about 2 1/2 hours. :(
[22:51:03] <Bytram> One thing that might help is that I just installed a generic/ascii print drive on my windows box which allows print to file... Might be useful to do that for all of our bug report stories and get everything, as text, in one place... that could be catenated together into one file, and we could then go from there.
[23:03:05] <Bytram> okay, I need to head out the door... I will check back in when I return
