[14:54:46] <janrinok> hi Woods
[14:55:05] <Woods> Hi
[14:55:13] <janrinok> sup?
[14:55:28] <Woods> Breakfast, yummm
[14:55:31] <Woods> You?
[14:56:05] <janrinok> mid afternoon - soon be time for a cup of tea....
[14:56:32] <Woods> What flavor do you go with?
[14:58:19] <janrinok> just regular breakfast tea - I don't go much for the more aromatic variations. I'm a northerner - we like our tea straight with no mucking about!
[15:00:07] <Woods> Fair enough
[15:00:36] <janrinok> what's for breakfast then?
[15:02:03] <Woods> Oatmeal, plain. Pretty exciting.
[15:02:26] <janrinok> looks like we're both straight-forward sort of guys then!
[15:03:19] <Woods> Indeed it does seem so
[15:03:35] <Woods> Whelp, that is all the chat I have time for today, lol. See you later!
[15:04:07] <janrinok> cu
[15:09:12] <Bytram|away> hiya! gtg to work; I put a couple stories in queue; 1st is a little inflamatory, but am at a loss as to how to improve. Both could use a "dept"
[15:09:32] <janrinok> Bytram|away: OK I'll take a look at them.
[15:09:39] <janrinok> have a good one!
[15:09:40] <Bytram|away> thanks!
[15:23:26] <Bytram|away> janrinok: I have an idea on the cyber story. brb
[15:24:08] <janrinok> Story went out about 40 minutes ago.....
[15:27:42] <Bytram|away> oops; well, now it's a little different. :/
[15:27:44] <Bytram|away> =)
[15:28:30] <janrinok> did you remove the dept again?
[15:28:39] <Bytram|away> gtg cya and THANKS for the help!

[16:27:03] <weeds> hello
[16:27:30] <janrinok> hi weeds how's things with you?
[16:28:16] <weeds> Doin fine, fixin some database stuffs, you?
[16:28:47] <janrinok> just editing the next 6 hours of stories
[16:28:58] <janrinok> But good otherwise!
[16:29:30] <weeds> ha ha. I wonder if you want to pull that heathrow story
[16:30:01] <janrinok> why?
[16:30:47] <weeds> seems it's just the normal advertising not really renamed
[16:31:24] <janrinok> it says 'renamed for period of 2 weeks' - do you think that will confuse people?
[16:31:45] <janrinok> And we've never had that sort of thing before in our airports.
[16:32:38] <weeds> my take was that they renamed the terminal, from the title, which they didn't, they just sold them advertising space and the ads call it samsung bla bla.
[16:33:13] <weeds> but, of course, I didn't read the actual article :)
[16:33:19] <janrinok> I take it you mean the title of the source , not the tfs
[16:34:03] <janrinok> And they _are_ changing all the signage around the airport, at least the 170 signs for passengers.
[16:35:40] <weeds> I don't think so - http://www.imore.com
[16:36:11] <weeds> "Heathrow Terminal 5's signage and passenger wayfinding has not changed," a Heathrow spokesperson told iMore.
[16:36:35] <weeds> NBD
[16:36:37] <janrinok> OK I have 2 sources that refer to the 170 electronic signs being changed - but I will slip the story and check the new link
[16:37:01] <janrinok> too late - its out!
[16:37:11] <weeds> conflicting info. You can leave it up and just post your references.
[16:38:05] <weeds> I can't imagine actually changing the name of the terminal - it would be a disaster for passengers
[16:45:40] <janrinok> weeds: thx I've updated the story - I will not withdraw it because it is already out and has comments.
[16:52:11] <weeds> that's cool. Just sticking my nose in :)
[16:52:28] <janrinok> np - I wish more would do it!"
[16:53:59] <weeds> I have these long running queries, so I have time to read SoylentNews and kibitz.
[16:54:14] <janrinok> never heard of kibitz
[16:57:04] <janrinok> Any eds available to release my stories please?
[16:57:45] <weeds> :) - It's Yiddish
[16:57:55] <janrinok> in language or content?
[17:02:00] <weeds> Kibitz is a Yiddish word from the German (like lots of Yiddish) "Kibitz" which means an onlooker, especially at a card game. The Yiddish version usually adds "annoying". My family is German and used a lot of German/Yiddish.
[17:02:24] <janrinok> That explains why I couldn't find it in google....
[17:04:31] <weeds> http://www.yiddishdictionaryonline.com "Kibits." Kibits is the Yiddish and Kibitz is the German.
[17:04:58] <janrinok> Yeah, I found several definitions , but I couldn't find the web site
[17:06:41] <weeds> When I took German in high school it was funny how many words I thought were English actually were German because my family used them all the time.
[17:08:02] <janrinok> And many English words have a Germanic root to them as well, so they wouldn't sound too out-of-place.
[17:09:20] <weeds> That is true. My daughter is taking German now and having a similar experience because I kept the tradition going.
[17:10:33] <janrinok> It's a good thing to do. My wife's family are bilingual English/French. They slip from one to the other effortlessly, and sometimes mix the 2 which is almost impossible to follow unless you are fluent in both.
[17:10:53] <janrinok> It is a difficult skill to learn when one is older.
[17:15:07] janrinok is now known as janrinok|afk
[17:15:59] <weeds> I wouldn't make any claim to being bilingual. Just a bucket of words and a few phrases.
[19:38:36] * mrcoolbp speaks english, spanish, and portugese
[19:38:57] <janrinok|afk> hi mrcoolbp
[19:39:00] <mrcoolbp> hiyo
[19:40:40] <janrinok|afk> on the phone , hang on.
[19:41:25] <mrcoolbp> np

[21:18:27] <weeds> The Chairman and CEO of Cisco Systems has written to the US President explaining how recent _relevations_ !!
[21:19:20] <weeds> :) releve - a movement in which the dancer rises on the tips of the toes.
[21:29:30] <weeds> Can be done en pointe or not. When done without pointe shoes the lift is only to half - toe.
