[15:19:03] * LaminatorX lives.
[15:24:15] <Woods> He lives!
[15:25:38] <LaminatorX> God bless penacillin. That streptacoccus is a mean bug.
[15:28:55] <Woods> If there are typos in a quote, should I fix them?
[15:31:18] <LaminatorX> Either fix them, or add [sic] immediately following the error.
[15:31:38] <LaminatorX> The latter is more rigorous, the former is kinder.

[19:08:20] <janrinok> hi guys
[19:15:55] <Woods> Heeyyyyyy, Janrinok.
[19:23:46] LaminatorX|afk is now known as LaminatorX
[19:30:15] <janrinok> Hi Woods - sry I was with my wife for a moment there
[19:30:18] <janrinok> Hi LaminatorX
[19:39:50] <LaminatorX> Hello.
[19:40:32] <janrinok> hi LaminatorX how's things with you?
[19:40:39] <janrinok> feeling better?
[19:40:50] <LaminatorX> Indeed so, thanks.
[19:42:55] <janrinok> Good to hear. We get Sophie's specially modified car delivered on Wednesday so she will be able to leave the house for the first time in about 8 months!
[19:43:35] <janrinok> I'll still be driver, but we can wheel her in and it has various features installed for her comfort and care.
[19:44:42] <LaminatorX> That's awesome news. I remember when I was laid up a few years back how much energy all the trivial day-to-day life stuff took up.
[19:45:45] <LaminatorX> Anything to make getting around less of an ordeal is major.
[19:46:48] <janrinok> So I can confirm that I will be taking a break from Friday evening 9 May (UTC) until Monday 19 May. Until we try we do not know how much Sophie will be able to cope with, so I might end up popping on the site from time to time anyway. Is that acceptable?
[19:48:35] <Woods> Janrinok: I can help cover, I will make sure I set an alarm on my phone so I can remember to check in on the site during the weekends.
[19:48:55] <janrinok> Thx Woods
[19:50:00] <janrinok> Woods: How's things with you anyway - did you have a good weekend?
[19:50:51] <LaminatorX> That should be fine. I can certainly pick up the slack where needed.
[19:50:58] <Woods> Pretty good, I cannot complain. I took the day off Friday, but forgot to tell you guys, looks like you did alright without me.
[19:52:47] <janrinok> Thx guys - I'm looking forward to a bit of a break, and I know that Soph is both excited and apprehensive. She is worried that travelling might prove to be quite an ordeal for her and, if that is the case, then her world has just become ever so much smaller.
[19:54:01] <LaminatorX> Hopefully the excitement of seeing SOMETHING ELSE will oughtweigh the strain by a significant margin.
[19:54:45] <LaminatorX> Where are you headed?
[19:55:20] <janrinok> LaminatorX: We had some complaints regarding cross-posting of papas-fritas/hugh pickens stories on one of the threads over the weekend. http://soylentnews.org
[19:56:06] <janrinok> Well we are starting fairly local - just visits to family and restaurants etc, and building up as we find out what is possible.
[19:56:52] <janrinok> Probably stay with 50 miles or so of home because she still has to return here each evening at present.
[19:57:42] <janrinok> LaminatorX: the excitement of seeing someone else _other than me_ is probably causing her most excitement!
[20:04:59] <Woods> I want to laugh, but at the same time, that would make me feel sad.
[20:05:11] <janrinok> laugh away! We do!
[20:05:18] <LaminatorX> Does she have a lot of pain/sensativity trouble or just mobility impairment?
[20:06:11] <janrinok> She remains pain-free for no more than 1 hour at most. A change of position is all that is required to relieve it, but there is only so much movement than can be made in a chair.
[20:06:43] <LaminatorX> Got it. Short trips sound ideal then.
[20:07:02] <janrinok> Well we will know in a week or two....
[20:08:24] <janrinok> I'm goind to have to go afk for much of this evening. But I will keep a watching eye on this chan, so leave a message if there is something that you need me to do.
[20:08:48] <LaminatorX> I looked over the HP/PF thread. I'd say you guys fielded that just fine. A bit of such hassle seems to be the price of running his stories, and I don't mind paying that toll.
[20:09:31] <janrinok> Without someone else to fill his submissions, I don't think that we have much option to be honest.
[20:11:11] janrinok is now known as janrinok|afk
[20:20:10] <Woods> Hm. We have had 0 submissions for 9 hours.
[20:22:11] <LaminatorX> Hmm. Try submitting a dummy story. Let's see if it's a lull or a glitch.
[20:23:01] <paulej72> If it is broken it wasn’t me :)
[20:25:29] <Woods> Good idea
[20:26:27] <Woods> Except, if I submit a dummy story, that will ruin my perfect record...
[20:26:44] <Woods> (I have issues)
[20:26:54] <LaminatorX> Fell free to submit A.C. ;)
[20:27:25] <Woods> ahah!
[20:28:20] <Woods> It takes a minute to show up, right?
[20:31:47] <LaminatorX> How long has it been?
[20:32:21] <Woods> 6 minutes.
[20:33:25] <LaminatorX> I still don't see it either.
[20:34:37] <Woods> In the past, I was able to submit something, and see it within a minute... Maybe even within 10-15 seconds.
[20:48:17] <janrinok|afk> I can see it!
[20:48:47] <janrinok|afk> well, I can see one from paulej72
[20:49:28] <paulej72> seems that AC submitting may be broken
[20:50:11] <janrinok|afk> Mine went through in about 10 seconds
[20:51:00] <janrinok|afk> sry that should be UTC+1
[20:52:30] <paulej72> wood posted it as an AC
[20:59:17] <paulej72> OK I tested as AC to both frontends and it showed up. I think Woods has some kind of issue. You should try clearing your browser cache and trying again.
[21:00:18] <paulej72> I deleted our test submissions.
[21:03:55] <LaminatorX> I just dropped a dupe submission from the bin as well. Seemed to work just fine.
[21:12:02] <paulej72> Do we know if NCommander wanted his manifesto to be posted, or did he deliberatley not set the topic and section so it would not display?
[21:12:37] <LaminatorX> He seems to be gradually adding to it. I imagine it will go live once complete.
[21:13:30] <LaminatorX> It's a clever way to not have to re-format once submitted. If you're writing in slash from the get-go, slash won't mung some other editor's formatting.
[21:14:56] <LaminatorX> No <br><br> at every /n, for example.
[21:28:10] <Woods> okay, so we discovered that it is not broken? We have just gotten 0 submissions all day?
[21:30:01] <LaminatorX> Well, slashd and apache got restarted before we isolated AC+you. There may have been something hanky earlier from which you keapt some leftover crud in a cookie.
[21:33:44] <Woods> Wait... So I have to get RID of my cookies? but, but... Cookies!
[21:34:34] <LaminatorX> You can probably just get rid of your sn cookie, then sign back in.
[21:34:46] <LaminatorX> Or just don't sublit stories AC.
[21:52:46] <paulej72> there were submissions today based on the dates given.
[21:56:31] <Woods> Sure enough, there goes an AnonTechie one. Also, I forgot that the site converts to my timezone when viewing submitted stories, but it uses UTC when editing. It had only been about 5 hours since the previous story.
