[00:01:39] <janrinok> mrcoolbp: I'm just about to call it a day - were the edits of any use?
[00:01:57] <mrcoolbp> yeah, I'm tying them up right now!
[00:02:00] <mrcoolbp> thank you soo much
[00:02:05] <janrinok> np
[00:02:15] <mrcoolbp> next I gotta tackle this FAQ page = )
[00:02:38] <janrinok> Can an editor check my stories please?
[00:02:51] <janrinok> lol mrcoolbp did LamX show up?
[00:02:57] <mrcoolbp> yup
[00:03:06] <janrinok> Was he OK?
[00:03:08] <mrcoolbp> he was happy to offload the docs to me
[00:03:13] <mrcoolbp> he seemed...tired
[00:03:37] <janrinok> I thought he might be - and I'm not surprised. He'll be OK but it will take time.
[00:04:20] <mrcoolbp> hoping I helped ease his load an iota

[02:44:10] <n1> hey Bytram
[02:44:25] <Bytram> n1: hiya!
[02:44:46] * Bytram wonders if anyone will ever respond to that greeting with "watha"
[02:45:29] <n1> why "watha"?
[02:45:45] <Bytram> n1: hiya-watha
[02:46:11] <Bytram> name of a famous female indian (i.e. native american)
[02:46:23] <Bytram> longfellow wrote a poem about her, IIRC
[02:47:32] <n1> I see, don't think i'd have ever got that lol
[02:47:50] <n1> not well read in native american history
[02:48:02] <n1> or at all
[02:48:47] <Bytram> see: https://en.wikipedia.org and http://www.hwlongfellow.org
[02:51:22] <n1> how are things with you?
[02:52:07] <n1> that is quite the wikipedia article for a poem
[02:54:36] <Bytram> n1: okay. tired. wish I didn't have to work to pay the bills so I could spend more time here!
[02:55:46] <Bytram> how are *you*?
[02:56:56] <n1> i know the feeling, tired and with bills to pay. things are good for the most part though.
[02:58:22] <Bytram> agreed. I am grateful that I *have* a job and that it covers my bills (so far).
[02:58:39] <Bytram> n1: think thismight make a good story? http://science.psu.edu
[03:01:23] <n1> i'm trying to find better work, just ok right now but progress it's not.
[03:01:33] <n1> the story seems worth a submission
[03:02:31] <Bytram> thanks. at first I though it was about a new *nearest* neighbor, but this one is 7.2 light years away; they reference a warmer brown dwarf found in 2013 that's 6 or so ly away.
[03:04:25] <n1> it's not my thing but i like the astronomy stories, they can get me thinking
[03:05:30] <Bytram> ok, will submit it in a while. need to get some dinner first, though.
[03:05:57] <n1> enjoy your dinner :)
[03:06:22] <Bytram> thanks! back ina bit

[04:58:36] <Bytram> n1: just noticed your message. give me a couple minutes
[05:05:11] <Bytram> n1: made some minor fixes to the oneplus; now on to the 1:1 model.
[05:11:16] <Bytram> n1: and that's that for the 1:1 model.
[05:13:04] <n1> great, thanks. :)
[05:13:50] <n1> both were kind of awkward to work on so i'm glad we got there in the end.
[05:21:01] <Bytram> n1: they didn't look that bad when I got to them. You must have worked some good editing magic on them!
[05:23:40] <Bytram> well, getting late here. Time for me to call it a day and get some shut-eye.
[05:23:49] <Bytram> cya later!
[05:23:59] <n1> good night, Bytram

[05:25:46] <Bytram|away> b4 I go, here's an interesting article I just stumbled on: http://www.theregister.co.uk
[05:26:40] <Bytram|away> looks like it's possible to spoof the "Calling Line Identification" (CLI) and thus get direct access to voice mailboxes.
[05:27:48] <n1> wouldn't surprise me, i'll have a read.
[05:27:52] <n1> thanks again :)

[17:19:28] <janrinok> hi mrcoolbp
[17:19:52] <mrcoolbp> hey Janrinok!
[17:19:57] <mrcoolbp> how goes it?
[17:19:59] <janrinok> how's things?
[17:20:08] <mrcoolbp> not bad at all
[17:20:27] <janrinok> Had a good rest since yesterday?
[17:20:42] <mrcoolbp> yeah =)
[17:21:28] <janrinok> I've just finished my major edit on the wiki - it is only the first attempt but it was a job I had to get out of the way. With more eds around it has made that possible
[17:22:26] <mrcoolbp> awesome
[17:22:29] * mrcoolbp goes to check
[17:27:14] <mrcoolbp> I think we should greet potential editors by showing them this link before we induct them.
[17:27:48] <janrinok> That was my intention - there was no single source on 'how' to do editing when we started
[17:28:21] <mrcoolbp> oh I saw this yesterday:
[17:28:22] <janrinok> I would like it also to serve as a useful reference for the less used options
[17:28:52] <mrcoolbp> http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[17:29:32] <janrinok> I wish I had seen that first! I'm sure there are bits I could have used.
[17:30:28] <janrinok> We - YOU - are amassing a valuable source of information!
[17:30:53] <mrcoolbp> yeah, I noted when I saw it that you would say "why didn't you show me that earlier!!!!?>!?"
[17:31:17] <janrinok> lol - no probs. Its done now anyway
[17:31:40] <mrcoolbp> I skimmed the whole thing, I will go through later in more detail
[17:32:13] <mrcoolbp> later= not sure when
[17:32:16] <janrinok> I'm sure that there are a few typos - I'm working a bit against the clock here as I'm due to got look after Sophie.
[17:32:31] <janrinok> *to go look
[17:33:08] <janrinok> ....and on that note, I'll be afk for a while, but back on later. Perhaps we can chat then?
[17:33:18] <mrcoolbp> I have to work in 3 hours
[17:33:31] <mrcoolbp> so not today, but another day yes!
[17:37:45] <janrinok> ok cu next time!

[20:12:57] <janrinok> n1: you around?
[20:39:18] <n1> i am now
[20:39:20] <n1> whats up?
[20:39:46] <janrinok> nothing - just saying hello
[20:40:16] <n1> hello to you too :)
[20:40:35] <janrinok> having a good day?
[20:41:17] <n1> can't really complain, how about yourself?
[20:42:10] <janrinok> Yeah OK. I finished the first draft of the Editorial Process on the wiki, had a chat with a few people on here, 2nd read some stories etc
[20:43:42] <n1> hope the stories from last night were ok, as you could probably see it was quite late when i did them.
[20:44:03] <n1> the wiki is updated now?
[20:44:42] <janrinok> only minor things that we all do and nothing that sticks in my mind. Yes, the wiki is updated but evertime I look I find another spolling mistook, so I'm giving it a break for a while.
[20:48:16] <n1> yeah, i can understand that
[20:48:54] <janrinok> are you working professionally and on here as well - like your other Saturdays, or have you something planned?
[20:50:48] <n1> not working today thankfully, having a relaxed weekend
[20:51:15] <janrinok> good - you deserve it. Does that mean that there might be a beer or 3 involved?
[20:51:51] <n1> there could be!
[20:52:50] <n1> last week was on average quite good, so i do think i deserve it this time :p
[20:53:36] <janrinok> Are you staying in for the beer or going out? I'm having mine here because of Soph of course.
[20:55:22] <n1> staying in, got to figure out the food and beverage situation though.
[20:55:49] <janrinok> sounds like you have choices.... Good position to be in.
[20:56:33] <n1> there are choices but i've had quite a lot of eating out this week, and i'm feeling lazy... tesco express is an evil convinience
[20:56:48] <janrinok> lol - it also makes you put on weight
[20:58:00] <n1> i'm ashamed, last night i ruined a good steak with a pot noodle
[20:58:31] <janrinok> Sacrilege - don't tell me you washed it down with a Chablis Shandy
[20:59:23] <n1> i ended up eating it in the kitchen, didn't want to dignify it with sitting down to enjoy it. didn't intend to combine the two...
[20:59:44] <janrinok> rofl
[21:01:41] <n1> anything good on your menu this evening?
[21:04:18] <janrinok> we've already had a pasta dish because Soph has to go to bed about 7pm. She has her own TV etc but by that time the pain is only relieved by lying down. I also have a glass of red wine each day.
[21:04:41] <janrinok> I'm just about to start on a beer.
[21:06:51] <n1> local beer?
[21:07:17] <janrinok> No! A decent real ale from the UK, but I haven't decided which one yet....
[21:08:09] <janrinok> Have you seen Woods today?
[21:09:12] <n1> I have not, might be off because it's the weekend.
[21:09:47] <n1> He said he was on SN at work all the time.
[21:10:14] <janrinok> well, I'll do one more story then leave it for someone else to pick up - you, LamX and I have done our bit
[21:12:46] <n1> sounds reasonable, i should be around tomorrow afternoon and maybe do some later, depends how the beer goes down. :)
[21:14:11] <janrinok> In that case - enjoy your beers, we will be fast asleep before the queue runs dry. I'm up to around 0500 with this last story.
[21:16:05] <n1> :) make sure you enjoy yours too!
[21:16:20] <janrinok> Oh, I will!
[21:19:37] <janrinok> Finished! BEER TIME!
[21:19:45] <janrinok> brb
[21:33:05] <janrinok> Damn - its a cup of tea, Soph hasn't settled yet...
[21:41:26] <n1> i had a cup of tea somewhere...
[21:43:11] <janrinok> you mean you can't find it now?
