[16:13:01] <janrinok> hi guys
[16:15:27] <LaminatorX> Hello.
[16:17:00] <Bytram> janrinok: hiya!
[16:17:05] <Bytram> LaminatorX: hi!
[16:17:13] <janrinok> Bytram: hi to you too#
[16:17:31] <janrinok> LaminatorX: hello good sir - and how goes your day?
[16:17:50] <Bytram> janrinok: thnx! am trying to get a few things done before heading out for my day job. whaats' up?
[16:18:28] <LaminatorX> Good so far, thanks. I totally cut my own hair last night with clippers and a mirror, and didn't mess up.
[16:18:47] <Bytram> so, you avoided a close shave?
[16:19:06] <LaminatorX> #2 gaurd FTW.
[16:19:46] <Bytram> LaminatorX: ah, "clippers" not "scissors"; it's what I do, too.
[16:19:57] <janrinok> I'm the same. I have cut my own hair for about 20 years or so, #2 at the sides and #3 on top!
[16:20:25] <Bytram> that's a pretty close cut, I'm more of a #4, myself (IIRC) maybe a #3.
[16:20:51] <janrinok> Woods are you around? I've had to pull your latest story - its a dupe.
[16:20:52] * LaminatorX hasn't had an "on-the-top" since age 21.
[16:20:59] <janrinok> lol LaminatorX
[16:22:02] <Bytram> back in a few minutes; working on something else atm.
[16:22:08] <janrinok> ok
[16:38:13] <Woods> Janrinok: Dang it. I got so excited about the story that I forgot to check that. Also, my version was way better than that previous version. :(
[16:38:34] <LaminatorX> It was, sadly.
[16:38:40] <janrinok> Best you check who submitted and edited the previous version....
[16:38:56] <janrinok> I think it might have been me.....
[16:39:00] <janrinok> lol
[16:39:01] <Woods> n1.
[16:39:16] <LaminatorX> Safe!
[16:39:20] <Woods> Nailed it.
[16:39:41] <Woods> At least the Indigogo campaign is doing well for the project, it looks incredibly fascinating to me.
[16:40:12] <janrinok> good - I'm in the clear!
[16:44:07] <janrinok> How are you Woods? I've not spoken to you for a few days. Things at work settled downl now?
[16:52:09] <Woods> Janrinok: Yeah I have been good, still a little busy with the sudden influx of new people, and rumors on the winds that we may be hiring 20 more.
[16:55:10] <paulej72> I fixed the stories list so that the link on the left now goes to to the edit page. It is on dev, but will be on prod this weekend
[16:56:24] <Bytram> paulej72: looking fwd to it. BTW, have the story times ( in http://soylentnews.org ) always been in my local time? ISTR it was UTC?
[16:56:26] <LaminatorX> Sweet.
[16:57:27] <paulej72> Bytram: i did not change anything so they probably were on that page.
[16:58:23] <janrinok> paulej72: Thx - that sounds a very worthwhile fix
[16:59:01] <Bytram> paulej72: interesting! Local time makes it a lot easier for me to assess when things come out. I noticed the <title> for that page gives the UTC to local translation, too. don't know how long THAT has been around... never noticed it before!
[16:59:45] <Bytram> paulej72: I noticed on dev that you did some work with styles(I think) so that there is no longer a need to insert a space into long strings?
[16:59:55] <Bytram> paulej72++

[16:59:59] <Bytram> paulej72++
[16:59:59] <deadpeas> karma - paulej72: 4
[17:00:09] <paulej72> yes long strings are broken vai css
[17:00:16] <Bytram> !woop
[17:00:16] <deadpeas> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[17:00:24] <Bytram> !uid
[17:00:24] <deadpeas> The current maximum UID is 4400, owned by joefromct
[17:00:42] <Bytram> coming up on 5000!
[17:00:57] <Bytram> and i noticed the comment count is close to 50,000 too!
[17:01:09] <paulej72> hopefully the new fixes will help pull in more new users.
[17:02:06] <janrinok> Bytram: Unfortunately, the last 200 or so members have taken well over a month to join us. Still climbing, but much more slowly now.
[17:02:24] <Bytram> paulej72: all we can do is be prepared for when /. rolls out beta; I suspect there will be a big surge, then.
[17:02:50] <janrinok> Has anyone seen any dates quoted for Beta yet?
[17:02:52] <Bytram> janrinok: yes, but I suspect a significant number of the early accounts were people opening up multiples to get low UIDs.
[17:03:17] <LaminatorX> Mind you, we've done exactly no marketting or promotion.
[17:03:24] <Bytram> janrinok: nope. I just today took a look at /. and I was still able to see it as D1 (the original layout).
[17:04:00] <LaminatorX> Soulskill has said that "Classic" will be available for a long time.
[17:04:03] <Bytram> LaminatorX++ Excellent point. And that might be the best way to go. Attraction rather than promotion.
[17:04:03] <deadpeas> karma - laminatorx: 5
[17:04:33] <Bytram> build it (good enough) and they will come.
[17:05:25] <janrinok> got to go for a while, cu guys later.
[17:05:34] janrinok is now known as janrinok|afk
[17:06:09] <LaminatorX> I think we might benefit from some properly focussed promotion at some point in the future when our ducks are more in a row than they currently are. At the moment though, slow & stready word of mouth is healthy.
[17:10:56] <Bytram> LaminatorX: I fully agree. Quack!!
