[16:18:23] <janrinok> hi guys
[16:18:29] <janrinok> hi guys
[16:18:36] <LaminatorX> Hello.
[16:19:06] <janrinok> Hi LaminatorX how's things?
[16:20:11] <LaminatorX> Grandpa let my 5-year old steer the motorboat at 60mph yeaterday, and we're all still alive, so pretty good.
[16:20:30] <janrinok> Great! On both counts, of course.
[16:21:38] <janrinok> At one point yesterday we ran out of (useable) stories - so I had to go collect a few. Didn't post quite as many as usual though.
[16:22:39] <LaminatorX> My uncle let me steer his truck while herding cattle at around that age, I'm not sure if higher speeds or risk of hitting a cow constitute a greater danger.
[16:22:47] <LaminatorX> I saw the stories, nice work.
[16:23:10] <janrinok> At 60mph I suspect any sudden stop will hurt a bit!
[16:23:49] <LaminatorX> We didn't go that fast hearding cattle though.
[16:24:51] <janrinok> At what age were you allowed to drive a vehicle (off public roads of course)?
[16:25:40] <LaminatorX> I drove tractors solo around 12.
[16:26:11] <janrinok> My upbringing was quite staid in comparison. I didn't get behind a wheel until I was 18.
[16:27:10] <LaminatorX> I didn't get to drive a car until I was 16. A tractor does nothing suddenly and needs not interact with other vehicles, at least not in the contexts I was allowed.
[16:28:03] <LaminatorX> I mostly grew up in St. Louis, but we'd spend a month or two each Summer on my family's farm in Louisiana.
[16:30:24] <janrinok> I lived on the edge of the countryside - the farmland started about 100 meters from the front door, but I wouldn't call myself a country boy. Spent a lot of my youth on the edge of Manchester.
[16:31:54] <janrinok> Always enjoyed the outdoors though - spent a lot of time hiking and camping.

[16:35:40] <janrinok> Just to give you plenty of advance notice, once I've posted my 1000th story (about 4 - 6 months or so), I intend taking a break from editing and doing a bit more programming. I'll be back though - I do enjoy being an editor but, as you know, it does take a fair chunk of each day to do, and I feel that I am missing out on some of the other things that I enjoy.
[16:36:25] <LaminatorX> Balance is important. Thanks for the heads-up.
[16:37:29] <LaminatorX> You're certainly welcome to pop in for a story or two as you feel like it, rather than being as much of an anchor.
[16:37:56] <janrinok> I've tried editing less and doing a bit of programming but I cannot seem to get into being productive before I have to finish to go to the next task in my day....
[16:38:38] <janrinok> Yes, I might well do that, because I _do_ enjoy being part of this small community.

[16:42:42] <LaminatorX> I found it interesting that Taco's biggest regret in leaving /. wasn't giving up his baby, it was that the terms of seperation specified that he couldn't post stories any more.
[16:43:43] <janrinok> I'm not sure why such a condition was imposed but I can fully understand his feelings. Unless they thought he would become a disruptive influence?

[16:47:25] <janrinok> Do you manage to do most of your posting from work, or do you have to set aside some time at home to edit a few stories each day?
[16:49:54] <LaminatorX> The way the timing of everyone else tends to work out, I do most of my posting at home, both before bed and when i get up in the morning.
[16:51:19] <LaminatorX> I try to fill in the gaps.
[16:51:27] <janrinok> I've got to fit things in around Soph's requirements. At the moment they are in a state of flux and my timetable is a bit out of kilter. But I usually get about 90 minutes spare before I start to prepare dinner and that is when I try to do my editing.
[16:52:02] <LaminatorX> I basically check in on the site every few hours and make sure there are stories queued up, and queue some if there aren't.
[16:52:51] <janrinok> It seems to be working well at the moment, the 4 of us seem to be doing much the same sort of procedure, and I notice that we are up to date and then some at present.
[16:59:39] <janrinok> LaminatorX: Did you ever find out what happened to MrGirl?
[17:02:04] -!- Tachyon has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[17:02:05] <LaminatorX> Nope. I just chalked it up to graduate school being a soul crushing black hole for personal time and energy.
[17:02:55] <janrinok> lol - yep, that sounds about right.

[17:11:10] <janrinok> Got to go for an hour or two - possibly speak to you later. take care.
[17:11:23] <LaminatorX> You too.
