[16:07:28] <janrinok> hi guys - anyone alive?
[16:08:14] <Bytram|afk> nope.
[16:08:50] <janrinok> fair enough.....
[16:09:09] <janrinok> I'll get my shovel and start digging holes...
[16:09:18] <Bytram|afk> LOL!
[16:09:29] <janrinok> how's things Bytram|afk
[16:10:15] <Bytram|afk> good. Had a "bright" idea to filter #rss-bot logs into a format that, for me, would be more usable. Just spent an hour on the effort w/o even realizing it.
[16:10:40] <Bytram|afk> so, I'm about half-done, but it's a gorgeous day, I've got lunch time plans, and need to shower (and all that) before going out.
[16:10:45] <janrinok> are you still on vacation or was that last week - my memory is not what it once was...
[16:10:55] <Bytram|afk> IOW, a nice n easy day off on vacation. =)
[16:11:12] <janrinok> great news - I hope you enjoy it to the full!
[16:11:31] <Bytram|afk> neither is my memory, but least I forget how bad it's getting! <just kidding!>
[16:11:51] <Bytram|afk> thanks! and you?
[16:13:07] <janrinok> Nothing spectacular - but weather is good so I can't complain. Just finished doing the usual work around the house that is on my list for 'Tuesdays', and logged on to here to post a few stories.
[16:14:33] <Bytram|afk> good weather does wonders for my outlook on life. It's partly-sunny and about 70F here (that's about 21C)
[16:15:41] <janrinok> similar here although a fair breeze coming off the Atlantic.
[16:17:38] <Bytram|afk> only a light breeze here. Just enough to move the air; not enough to ruffle one's hair. </poet-mode> =)
[16:19:29] <janrinok> gosh, you are waxing lyrical today - hope you are wearing your best colour-coordinated outfit while skipping around the garden.
[16:22:05] <Bytram|afk> you betcha
[16:22:17] <janrinok> Hey, we actuall got some compliments from that Hugh Pickens piece - not everyone but at least some think we are doing it right!
[16:22:29] <mattie_p> hello janrinok, Bytram|afk
[16:22:38] <Bytram|afk> mattie_p: g'day! how's things?
[16:22:41] <janrinok> mattie_p: hi to you 2 - how's the packing going
[16:22:50] Bytram|afk is now known as Bytram
[16:23:00] <mattie_p> didn't get enough done yesterday, it seems, but making progress
[16:23:07] <Bytram> progress++
[16:23:07] <Bender> karma - progress: 1
[16:23:10] <Bytram> progress++
[16:23:10] <Bender> karma - progress: 2
[16:23:11] <Bytram> progress++
[16:23:11] <Bender> karma - progress: 3
[16:23:12] <mattie_p> progress++
[16:23:12] <Bender> karma - progress: 4
[16:23:17] <Bytram> there, that should help!
[16:23:21] <mattie_p> thanks!
[16:23:24] <Bytram> np
[16:23:30] <Bytram> got a sec? pm?
[16:23:34] <mattie_p> sure
[16:23:37] <janrinok> Bytram: sometimes I think you are an absolute star!]
[16:29:40] <Bytram> janrinok: why's that?
[16:30:19] <janrinok> - a bit late now, but simply the way you 'added progress' to mattie_p's efforts.
[16:30:53] <Bytram> I'm so far outside the box I sometimes have to squint to see it!
[16:31:02] <janrinok> I just like that sort of humour - and it happened so quickly. Tips hat in respect.

[16:47:51] <LaminatorX> Are you awake, Azrael?
[16:50:31] <LaminatorX> I've been looking over your practice on dev. It's mostly good. let's chat when you get a chance.
[16:54:41] <janrinok> hi LaminatorX - how's things with you?
[16:56:42] <LaminatorX> Fairly well, how about you?
[16:57:34] <janrinok> not so bad thx. I've just taken a look at your latest submission - but of course it prints gibberish on my browser because it hasn't yet got the new characters installed! Bummer.
[16:58:08] <janrinok> ...and nothing yet in the repos to cover those characters.
[16:59:13] <janrinok> The other sources provide the images though!
[17:00:56] <janrinok> sry - I should perhaps clarify that. The story prints OK - but not all the sources print out on my browser.
[17:01:06] <LaminatorX> It thankfully seems that this won't interfere with what Buzzard and co are working on with UTF-8 support. He says it changes things at the browser&fon't level, but not the overall char encoding level.
[17:01:50] <janrinok> Those that I can see look OK - although their meaning is sometimes obscure to an innocent such as myself.
[17:03:01] <LaminatorX> Fun fact: the "Vulcan hand sign" is actually a Rabbinical blessing gesture. Nemoy's Jewish, and tossed it in on the fly.
[17:03:31] <Bytram> LaminatorX: orly? have ya got a link for that?
[17:03:39] <janrinok> I never knew that - best perhaps to be aware of one's location before using it...?
[17:04:18] <LaminatorX> http://en.wikipedia.org
[17:04:21] <Bytram> well, at least it's a blessing. better than the back-of-the-hand-with-the-middle-finger-extended character they added!
[17:04:49] <janrinok> not sure how it would go down in some muslim countries, though.
[17:06:15] <janrinok> I like mattie_p's latest story - oh, that tangled webs we weave...
[17:06:36] <mattie_p> I saw the story and had to post it
[17:06:48] <janrinok> don't blame you! good spot.
[17:06:49] <mattie_p> I'm trying to get back into running a story or two a day to help out
[17:07:16] <janrinok> ..as an excuse not to be packing _another_ box?
[17:07:27] <mattie_p> umm, maybe
[17:07:38] <Bytram> LaminatorX: well how about THAT! thanks for the link - I never knew!
[17:07:46] <janrinok> much appreciated - whatever the reason.
[17:08:39] <Bytram> mattie_p: incentive plan; pack 12 boxes and you can run one story =)
[17:09:09] <mattie_p> well, see you all in about 8 hours then... takes me a while :)
[17:10:40] * Bytram suggests mattie_p use small boxes
[17:10:51] <Bytram> =)
[17:11:11] <janrinok> got to go for a while myself. Have a good day y'all! (See - I'm trying to speak 'murican' whenever I can.)
[17:11:37] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[17:16:11] <LaminatorX> Au revoir.
[17:34:59] <Bytram|away> ugh, can't seem to get away; just noticed my time zone under "Editors" is wrong; should be same as mrcoolbp "UTC-4 (EST/EDT)" at: http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[17:35:09] * Bytram|away steps away from the keyboard =)
[17:40:23] <mrcoolbp> Bytram|away: I'll take a look at it
[17:45:47] <mrcoolbp> Bytram|away: fixed = )
[17:46:15] <Bytram|away> mrcoolbp: you're the best! thanks so much!!!!!
[17:46:37] <mrcoolbp> no prob, we should probably get you privs to edit that stuff...
