[15:24:14] <Woods> LaminatorX: The High Brain Integration and Creativity story has a broken link.
[15:24:21] <Woods> And the articles on that site are in... Spanish?
[15:29:44] <Woods> Nevermind, found it. Paywalled though. :(
[15:29:52] <LaminatorX> Hmm, lets take a look.
[15:30:47] <Woods> http://www.tandfonline.com
[15:34:09] <LaminatorX> I must have munged the link as I was inlining it somehow. Thanks.
[15:35:13] <Woods> I fixed it.
[15:36:09] <LaminatorX> This is why we aim for two editors on each story. :)
[15:36:46] <Woods> Horray! Efficiency!
[15:41:43] <Bytram> Hi guys!
[15:42:05] <Bytram> I can't remember who told me about it, but I learned of a new IRC channel a couple days ago.
[15:42:19] <Bytram> try joining #rss-bot

[16:22:04] <janrinok> Bytram: Hi. It looks like you didn't update your stories list before you saved your last story - don't worry, I'll move one of mine to make room for yours.
[16:22:46] <janrinok> back in 1 minute - changing computers.

[16:24:12] <Bytram> janrinok: good eyes you have! thanks a bunch!
[16:24:34] <janrinok> np - I'll re-sched mine
[16:24:50] <janrinok> how's things by the way?
[16:25:56] <Bytram> late night at work last night; out at about 9:30pm; bed @11pm. woke up too early (with the sun). will take a nap later (I hope!); still just luxury problems. all is good, really.
[16:26:14] <janrinok> and you have taken tomorrow off?
[16:26:28] <Bytram> btw, don't know if you were aware, but there's a really helpful channel here on irc that I joined
[16:26:43] <Bytram> try this: /join #rss-bot
[16:26:49] <janrinok> or am I confusing it with something Woods said? It's my age you know....
[16:26:58] <Bytram> I have today and tomorrow off. (yay!)
[16:27:05] <janrinok> Enjoy!
[16:27:16] <Woods> I am also taking tomorrow off.
[16:27:22] <Bytram> that channel gives headlines from around the net... great for finding new stories!
[16:27:25] <Woods> But not today. Close enough though.
[16:27:29] <janrinok> #join #rss-bot
[16:27:33] <Woods> That is pretty cool Bytram. Do you know who set that up?
[16:27:37] <janrinok> typo!
[16:27:39] <Woods> Janrinok: /join
[16:27:40] <Woods> Ah
[16:28:12] <Bytram> I have absolutely *NO* idea, but it's been a HUGE help in finding new stories to post, and it's *current* stuff, too!
[16:28:30] <janrinok> And I am off everyday - or never, depending on what anybody thinks I should be doing...
[16:29:42] <janrinok> I have 4 keyboards in front of me and none of them have exactly the same kbd layout. UK, Fr, US, and god knows what it is but it is a small kbd very handy for travelling with.
[16:31:08] <Woods> Sounds tedious.
[16:31:44] <janrinok> lots of fun typos!
[16:31:50] <Bytram> janrinok: woah. Reminds me of one semester when I was in college. Programmed in 4 different languages, on 4 different OS's, with 4 different keyboards, at the same time.
[16:32:29] <janrinok> I've got a Russian kbd downstairs and I can touch type on that as well as UK English. The others still catch me out frequently!
[16:33:01] <janrinok> Bytram: I bow in the presence of a Master
[16:33:10] <Bytram> I quickly learned that many languages will tolerate lack-of-spaces, but some complain (e.g. A=3; vs A = 3; ), but extra spaces were very well tolerated.
[16:33:54] <Bytram> nah, that was back when I was too young to know better! It'd take a few miutes to get re-acllimated when at a new system; that's for sure!!
[16:36:18] <janrinok> ...a small bow of acknowledgment then...
[16:38:52] <Bytram> janrinok: and a tip o' my hat to you, who does it well nigh simultaneously. Much impressed!
[16:39:15] <janrinok> Merci!
[16:39:46] <Bytram> janrinok: Bitte sehr! ;)
[16:40:01] <janrinok> nicht zu danken
[16:40:40] <Bytram> janrinok: wie sagt man das auf russian? sounds like: pejalska
[16:41:50] <janrinok> pozhalyusta but sounded very much like you have written it. 'Please'. The response 'Spasibo' - Thank You.
[16:42:49] <janrinok> we'd better stick to English, or at least dialects thereof, before the page becomes a mass of gibberish.
[16:43:48] <Bytram> thanks! My only experience is auditory, in dealing with occasional customers from other countries. I've got a passing familiarity with "Hello, thanks, you're welcome, and good-bye" in about 10-12 languages.
[16:44:13] <Bytram> though many are still at-the-tip-of-my-tongue when I try and remember them!
[16:44:23] <janrinok> I can surrender in about 18 languages - it always seemed a useful phrase to know...
[16:44:38] <Bytram> LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[16:45:08] * mrcoolbp can say "thank you" in 28 languages
[16:45:13] <janrinok> Cowering covers those languages where I cannot think of the appropriate words.

[16:45:34] <janrinok> Tip hat to mrcoolbp, then
[16:45:40] * Bytram is impressed with mrcoolbp's virtuosity
[16:45:52] <janrinok> In many fields too
[16:45:57] <mrcoolbp> Bytram, sometimes I'm a master of none though...
[16:46:13] <Bytram> I'm reminded of the saying that of all the languages that programmers know, universal among them is profanity!
[16:46:20] <janrinok> hi mrcoolbp - I wondered if you were lurking in the background..
[16:46:23] <mrcoolbp> except electric guitar, I can crush some pink floyd solos
[16:46:31] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: usualy = )
[16:46:35] * Bytram would like to see that some time!
[16:46:45] <mrcoolbp> bytram I can link you
[16:47:47] <Bytram> mrcoolbp: appreciated. might have to d/l later, though, I get, at best, about 40 KB/s
[16:48:10] <mrcoolbp> ah, no youtube then?
[16:50:11] <Bytram> I might pull down a 2-3 minute clip, but takes me about 15 minutes at 480p :/
[16:50:32] <mrcoolbp> another time then
[16:50:40] <janrinok> that is not a good connection - do you live somewhere remote or is that considered 'normal service'?
[16:50:53] <Bytram> mrcoolbp: email me the links and I'll drag my other netbook out to a coffee shop or something. =)
[16:51:04] <mrcoolbp> k
[16:51:20] <Bytram> thnx
[16:51:34] <mrcoolbp> np
[16:52:27] <Bytram> gotta get going on my day; have fun everone!
[16:52:41] <janrinok> have a good one - bye Bytram
