[01:23:37] <Bytram> the book was okay, though.
[01:23:43] <Bytram> heinlein++
[01:23:43] <Bender> karma - heinlein: 1
[01:27:13] <paulej72> ture dat
[01:27:24] <Bytram> paulej72: !!
[01:27:28] <Bytram> how ARE you?
[01:27:39] <paulej72> busy
[01:27:47] <Bytram> nod nod
[01:27:59] <Bytram> things are FINALLY slowing down a bit for me
[01:28:04] <Bytram> so good to see ya around.
[01:28:08] <paulej72> trying out a new irc client
[01:28:15] <Bytram> oh? which one?
[01:28:32] <paulej72> xchat azure on the mac
[01:28:40] <paulej72> has some issues
[01:28:43] <Bytram> how do you like it?
[01:29:11] <paulej72> I was using hexchat on the mac, but it is not working and they don't support it any more
[01:29:34] <Bytram> When news of Metldown / Spectre hit, I was wondering how much you were going to be affected... I hope it wasn't oo much of an impact.
[01:29:36] <paulej72> right now I need to double enter to send a message
[01:29:42] <Bytram> ugh
[01:29:53] <paulej72> but not that message
[01:30:05] <Bytram> k
[01:30:10] <paulej72> I have no clue why is woks but then doesn't
[01:30:38] <Bytram> maybe it needs artisinal return characters
[01:30:41] <Bytram> ;)
[01:30:50] <paulej72> can't fix it so why worry about spectre and meltdown
[01:31:33] * Bytram could be mistakn, but ISTR you wre responsible for a lab full of some large systems...
[01:31:50] <Bytram> feared they might have you scrambling to apply patches
[01:32:01] <paulej72> at least this has better text handling than hexchat. it scrolls so much easier
[01:32:08] <Bytram> scrolling++
[01:32:08] <Bender> karma - scrolling: 1
[01:32:47] <paulej72> bios patching will be a bit of a bitch, but most companies don't have any updates yet
[01:32:59] * Bytram still uses hexchat and still keeps bgetting bit when I try to do: ALT+space, E(dit), P(aste) from muscle-memory
[01:33:14] <paulej72> and Windows is backpeding on their fixes as they cause more issues than they fix
[01:33:32] <Bytram> didn't Microsoft roll out some patches and then have to cancel themn?
[01:33:38] <Bytram> zactly
[01:34:02] <Bytram> well, I'm just glad it hasn't hit you too severely!
[01:34:56] <paulej72> I think the biggest fixes are for browsers so that JS attacks are not possible

[19:39:10] * Bytram just succeeded in getting a message that reproduces TWO aspects of Issue #402:
[19:39:27] <Bytram> text I see in my web-based messssage: "Bytram has posted a comment, ­­­­­­­­­­, in reply to your comment, ­­­­­­­­­­, attached to Issue #402. "
[19:39:33] <Bytram> here's the HTML behind it:
[19:39:42] <Bytram> <p>
[19:39:42] <Bytram> Bytram has posted a comment,
[19:39:42] <Bytram> <b><a href="//soylentnews.org/comments.pl?sid=23600&amp;cid=631615">­­­­­­­­­­</a></b>, in reply to your comment,
[19:39:42] <Bytram> <b><a href="//soylentnews.org/comments.pl?sid=23600&amp;cid=628235">­­­­­­­­­­</a></b>, attached to

[19:39:43] <Bytram> </p>
[19:39:56] <Bytram> that was on prod, btw.
[19:40:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> no idea what yer talkin about
[19:40:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, spaces.
[19:40:29] <Bytram> zactly
[19:40:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, since they're not supposed to be there after the fix, fuck em.
[19:41:07] <Bytram> right, but I need to know how to reproduce the problem in order to verify that the fix actually works!
[19:41:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> yar
[19:42:58] * Bytram wishes he had a 4'x6' whiteboard to brainstorm on
[19:45:11] <Bytram> I suppose I should check and see what kind of message I get when it comes as an e-mail instead of a web-based message, too.
[22:49:56] <chromas> Whiteboard? That's old hat! You need a 180" touchscreen tv to finger.
[22:57:50] <paulej72> Bytram can only afford a 640x480 18.0" screen though :)
[23:00:37] <chromas> That's okay. All the big screen tvs used to have ⅛ppi.
[23:00:57] <chromas> oh I missed the 18"
