[15:25:09] <janrinok> hi Bytram|away
[15:25:18] <Bytram|away> janrinok: hi!
[15:25:27] <janrinok> how's things?
[15:25:45] <Bytram|away> saw lamx was working on a story and wanted to let him know there's a couple things still needing fixing
[15:25:51] <Bytram|away> but he's not here. :/
[15:26:05] <Bytram|away> trying to get a couple things done before going in to the day job.
[15:26:19] <janrinok> Could you 2nd ed my stories pse, and is there anything I can do the hlp you?
[15:26:38] <janrinok> to help you*
[15:27:12] <Bytram|away> this story: http://soylentnews.org ... dont' think it's appropriate to call out ethanol-fueled (and lamx got his nick wrong) and there's a typo "advances,;"
[15:28:03] <Bytram|away> I already made a minor change in the perconal text and email story, it's "Ars" technica, not "Are" technica. =)
[15:28:54] <Bytram|away> now on to the redox story...
[15:29:27] <janrinok> Yes- but it has already been released. We try not to edit the content - other than spelling mistakes - because the comments make little sense. LamX really ought to apologise if EF takes offence.
[15:29:51] <Bytram|away> nod nod
[15:32:04] <janrinok> ...and EF has not made any comments - nor may he end up doing so. I agree it is perhaps an undeserved comment, but we don't know if LamX and EF were having a conversation about it beforehand, or whether it is part of a private joke.
[15:32:49] <janrinok> I suspect EF will retort with some well-aimed vulgar comments and it will all be forgotten in minutes.
[15:35:50] <janrinok> Actually, it wasn't LamX who made the comment - it was the submitter AC. I'm surprised that it passed through the editing process though.

[15:37:15] <Bytram|away> janrinok: You raise good points, but, OTOH, as a reader who is not privy to any background discussion, it looks TOTALLY out-of-line.
[15:38:27] <janrinok> Thx for the correction to the typo - Are / Ars. The 'Are' wasn't obvious because it went through the spell-checker (Ars normally fails!) and it was v early in the morning here - I couldn't sleep. But, enough of these excuses, thx anyway.
[15:39:15] <Bytram|away> np
[15:39:29] <janrinok> You say you are working today?
[15:40:00] <Bytram|away> yeah.
[15:40:10] <janrinok> that's a bummer for you.
[15:40:16] <Bytram|away> looks like lamx is now looking at the spacex article I just reviewd.
[15:40:47] <janrinok> lol
[15:41:11] <Bytram|away> and I wonder what will happen to the corrections that I put into it?
[15:41:30] <janrinok> one of life's little challenges....
[15:41:48] <Bytram|away> well, I pulled a copy of it into another tab, jst in case.
[15:41:51] <Bytram|away> =)
