[16:51:18] <mattie_p> hey LaminatorX, janrinok!
[16:51:30] <LaminatorX> Yo.
[16:51:41] <janrinok> mattie_p: great to see you again
[16:51:42] <LaminatorX> I notice that Snowden story is no display.
[16:51:48] <janrinok> LaminatorX: to you likewise..
[16:51:55] <mattie_p> Bytram is trying to learn
[16:52:04] <LaminatorX> Yo^2.
[16:52:05] <mattie_p> didn't want to jump the gun, as it were
[16:52:33] <Bytram> LaminatorX: Hi there!
[16:52:44] <Bytram> still got my training wheels on and taking things slow and easy.
[16:52:48] <janrinok> he could always mark 'For Training Only' and let it go anyway.....
[16:52:57] <Bytram> LOL
[16:53:03] <mattie_p> rofl
[16:53:09] <janrinok> That will forever haunt me....
[16:53:29] <mattie_p> that was a classic, that needs to be saved forever, printed, and hung on your wall
[16:53:30] <Bytram> you do realize that you were training the community, right?
[16:53:33] <Bytram> =)
[16:53:49] <janrinok> 'course
[16:54:30] <janrinok> Bytram: hi by the way
[16:54:45] <Bytram> greetings!
[16:56:14] <LaminatorX> It looks good to me. I'll go ahead and take it live.
[16:56:33] <Bytram> LaminatorX: hold on, I just did a save on it.
[16:56:55] <Bytram> okay, looks good. THANKS!
[16:57:13] <LaminatorX> Check it again, I may have overwritten your change.
[16:57:24] <Bytram> k, looking again...
[16:59:19] <Bytram> found an edit that got lost; fixed now.
[16:59:36] <LaminatorX> Great.
[17:00:00] <LaminatorX> Woods is coming on too. We're training tomorrow afternoon.
[17:01:06] <Bytram> janrinok's primer was most helpful, as well as hands-on training by n1; you guys are the best!
[17:01:22] <janrinok> thx
[17:03:50] <janrinok> Bytram: the downside is that, as we approach the weekend, both the number and quality of submissions drops considerably. You end up trying to write a story about almost nothing from a few hints submitted by an AC!
[17:04:20] <janrinok> drop*
[17:04:25] <LaminatorX> We generally slow down the pace on the weekend as well. Most folks read at the office.
[17:04:47] <Bytram> janrinok: Yes, I noticed that. Took a look at EurekAlert.com to see if I could find something of my own to submit.
[17:05:08] <Bytram> I'm better at updating something that is already there, than creating something new out of whole cloth.
[17:05:28] <Bytram> But, like anything else, I'm sure I'll get better with practice!
[17:05:42] <Bytram> and with that, it's time for me to get going on my day.
[17:05:59] <janrinok> don't worry, the community are _very_ forgiving..... Just don't take everything they say to heart.
[17:06:14] <janrinok> cu later Bytram
[17:06:20] <Bytram> I guess this will promote the growth of thicker skin? =)
[17:07:28] <mattie_p> LaminatorX, you need me to promote woods, or does he already have rights?
[17:09:30] <Bytram> hrm, just found an interesting story; don't have time to run with it: "Negative impact of bullying was found to be persistent and pervasive, with health, social and economic consequences lasting well into adulthood" which can be found at: http://www.eurekalert.org
[17:09:48] <janrinok> I'll check it out later, thx
[17:09:52] <LaminatorX> Please add his permissions, mattie_p.
[17:09:54] <Bytram> oh, I guess, I do. hold on
[17:11:02] <mattie_p> is his email woods12?
[17:11:15] <mattie_p> want to make sure I'm promoting the correct user
[17:12:19] <LaminatorX> That's him.
[17:12:41] <mattie_p> poof, he
[17:12:45] <mattie_p> he is an editor
[17:14:59] <Bytram> go get 'em tiger! Oh, wait. :)
[17:15:48] <Bytram> okay, it's pretty slim, but I submitted the story. I apologize for the brevity.
[17:16:13] <Bytram> "Effects of Bullying Linger Long"
[17:16:40] <janrinok> we'll do what we can with it - it's the weekend after all!
[17:16:59] * janrinok notes not everyone is in my tz...
[17:18:17] <Bytram> Do you think anyone would understand: "from the is-that-you-lazarus dept"?
[17:18:30] <janrinok> yep - enough anyway
[17:19:27] <Bytram> double entendre (sp?) sci-fi Lazarus Long, and the biblical reference.
[17:20:17] <janrinok> we are meant to be geeks and nerds, but there will be some who will question it in the comments.
[17:20:58] <janrinok> bbl - couple of hours maybe.
[17:21:07] <Bytram> might lead to an interesting discussion? Lazarus Long... Heinlein, I think. there should be a bunch who get that.
