[12:45:35] * n1 bangs head against desk
[12:52:13] <Azrael> n1: ??
[12:53:09] <n1> just stressing, can't focus.
[12:54:57] <n1> woke up with a call about import/export legal bullshit, neighbour came to tell me they scratched my car when trying to park, havn't even gone to look.

[12:57:31] <Azrael> :/
[12:57:39] <janrinok> hi Azrael
[12:58:23] <n1> hi janrinok
[12:58:48] <janrinok> how's things
[12:59:15] <n1> as i just told Azrael, not so great.
[12:59:17] <n1> how are you?
[13:00:07] <janrinok> I'm OK, just returned from the first of many medical and dental appts that S must have before surgery can proceed. But OK so far....
[13:00:55] <janrinok> I missed your comment to Az - anything new or just more of the same?
[13:01:13] <n1> <+n1> just stressing, can't focus.
[13:01:13] <n1> <+n1> woke up with a call about import/export legal bullshit, neighbour came to tell me they scratched my car when trying to park, havn't even gone to look.
[13:01:29] <janrinok> not a good start to any day....!
[13:02:33] <n1> my car is like a fucking magnet for getting fucked up, this just adds to the stress of the project that i was supposed to start 1st of this month, still hasnt got the funding to go ahead for the 27th when it needs to go live.
[13:03:04] <janrinok> sry to hear that n1, and not much I can do to help...
[13:03:35] <n1> it's all good, just need to get frustration out of my system somehow
[13:03:41] <n1> thanks for letting me rant :)
[13:04:32] <janrinok> carry on - I know how it feels. Sometimes just talking about S here with you guys makes me feel much better too. If it gets too much though, just say and I will desist!
[13:05:49] <n1> I'm glad it helps, as you said, not much I can do to help except moral support.
[13:06:22] <janrinok> On a slightly brighter note - we have some submissions at last!
[13:06:35] <n1> indeed, was getting worried about that yesterday
[13:07:16] <n1> im trying to think of a dept title for the scottish spaceport, which doesn't involve insulting scotland.
[13:07:46] <janrinok> me too - I was wondering if something had happened that I had missed, a mutiny or whatever, but it seems like the weekends are getting longer and the week shorter when it comes to submissions.
[13:08:44] <n1> people are commenting more it seems, maybe spending less time looking for subs as the site has a degree of momentum
[13:09:31] <janrinok> I suppose we should be grateful for that, but several times over the last few days I've seen a queue down in single figures. I've even submitted 10 stories myself to keep us going.
[13:10:49] <n1> Yeah, it's not been pretty. I don't really know what to do about it without submitting ourselves or nagging people to submit.
[13:12:56] <janrinok> We need to come up with a strategy or campaign to encourage submissions - if we were a paysite I would suggest say 50 _accepted_ stories = x months of free membership or whatever. But, as it is, what can we do other than nag?
[13:15:51] <n1> off the top of my head, some kind of reward system, get a badge/avatar/icon for 10 accepted subs, a different one for 50, 100 etc
[13:15:58] <n1> but i dont know really
[13:18:13] <janrinok> Az
[13:18:36] <Azrael> janrinok: yo yo yo
[13:18:38] <janrinok> Azrael: I've just edited the same story as you - I've cancelled Display on mine
[13:18:44] <Azrael> ooops
[13:19:13] <janrinok> But not quite the same title - perhaps there were 2 dupes?
[13:19:26] <Azrael> I changed the title on mine
[13:19:40] <janrinok> OK - that's why I didn't spot it.
[13:20:13] <Azrael> ahh, I was worried I messed up there somehow :) if it's your fault that's much better :D
[13:20:16] * Azrael ducks
[13:20:26] <janrinok> See my sig.....
[13:21:17] * janrinok reminds Az that his sig is "it's always my fault"
[13:21:27] <Azrael> I just looked it op :D

[13:33:32] <n1> janrinok
[13:33:37] <janrinok> n1 yes
[13:34:35] <n1> on the GCHQ article you just did, apparently the guardian link was to replace the other, not in addition to. I didn't check the story as it was just before my bed time when keplr dropped in here to inform us.
[13:34:50] <n1> i'm taking it the other source was also relevant
[13:34:54] <janrinok> No they were complementary
[13:35:28] <n1> if they're complementary that's cool
[13:35:33] <n1> i'm just going off:
[13:35:34] <n1> <+n1> so instead of the firstlook link?
[13:35:34] <n1> <keplr> Yes.
[13:35:38] <janrinok> The Guardian article is about GCHQ's specific programs.
[13:35:55] <n1> yeah
[13:35:58] <n1> i can see how they work together
[13:36:07] <janrinok> n1 the last line of your spaceport story doesn't sound quite right to me
[13:36:13] <n1> i'm actually reading it now.
[13:36:17] <n1> hmm
[13:36:17] <janrinok> what is it you are trying to say?
[13:36:31] <n1> Nothing, that was from the submitter, i was undecided if i should delete it
[13:36:50] <janrinok> OK - I'll take it out if you are happy.
[13:36:54] <n1> yeah
[13:36:59] <n1> second opinion makes me feel better lol

[14:18:14] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: not bad, but I gotta run off to work in 20 minutes or so
[14:18:28] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: hope S is doing okay = )
[14:19:17] <janrinok> she is - thx
[14:19:54] <janrinok> did you use my draft as kindling for you fire?
[14:19:57] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: if you see BlackHole/LamX, maybe we could get their input on what we got so far on the Policy manual?
[14:20:09] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: I didn't get a chance to work on it more yesterday
[14:20:10] <janrinok> Yes, Radar

[14:21:08] <janrinok> One of your many jobs.....
[14:21:16] <Radar> you know. = )
[14:21:39] <Radar> how many am I up to now?
[14:21:45] <Radar> do I win a prize or something?
[14:23:08] <Radar> janrinok: it's a WIP still but: http://imgur.com
[14:23:15] <monopoly> ^ 03imgur: the simple image sharer
[14:23:24] <janrinok> looking
[14:23:51] <janrinok> Brilliant - I'll buy some!
[14:24:44] <janrinok> Are they mock-up photos, or have we actually had something made?
[14:25:15] <Radar> it's a service that will print and ship on demand
[14:25:19] <Radar> CafePress
[14:25:55] <janrinok> They look good - but has anyone had eyes/hands on the stuff they actually produce?
[14:26:01] <Radar> so technically you could buy them right now if I gave you the link (I ordred to mugs yesterday to test), but I want to really flesh it out more before we share it
[14:26:10] <Radar> ^^
[14:26:15] Radar is now known as mrcoolbp
[14:26:27] <mrcoolbp> BRB breakfast before I run out the door
[14:26:38] <janrinok> good idea - but I think that they will sell well - I'll start saving for the overseas postage...
[14:26:45] <janrinok> cul8r mrcoolbp
[14:30:30] <n1> just reminded me to buy a new hat...
[14:30:50] <janrinok> what did - looking at t-shirts?
[14:31:02] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: I think they have a UK presence, not sure
[14:31:13] <janrinok> That would be cool
[14:31:23] <n1> yeah, i think they do also
[14:32:05] <n1> janrinok, i found zerohedge has the perfect hat for me, another news site.
[14:32:07] <janrinok> and in France!
[14:33:08] <janrinok> n1: ...with matching thong I notice. ?;)
[14:33:15] <n1> rofl
[14:34:06] <n1> $40.99 for a hat is a lot, but finding a decent L/XL flexfit hat is not as easy as it should be, in the UK.
[14:35:02] <janrinok> yep - that is a bit steep, but admitting that you have an XL head is priceless...
[14:35:10] <n1> lol
[14:35:16] <n1> it's funny because it's true :p
[14:35:19] <janrinok> lol
[14:35:25] <n1> and the merch you see on their site isnt actually the one im getting
[14:35:36] <n1> http://www.store.minus273.biz
[14:35:37] <monopoly> ^ 03-273 — Zero Hedge FlexFit Hat - Silver
[14:35:40] <janrinok> no, no, of course not....
[14:36:12] <janrinok> does it come with a grey thong?
[14:36:19] <n1> apparently not :(
[14:36:35] <janrinok> nice to see that you have checked though.
[14:37:16] <paulej72> who took those pictues of the hat. they are horrible at showing the full back of the hat
[14:37:51] <n1> im guessing they didnt think it made much difference, if there's no design to show
[14:39:06] <n1> i do find it amusing to consider that some people are wearing flat brim hats that promote a finance news website
[14:40:30] <paulej72> I hate falt brim hats. makes me thing of those drugged out hipser rockers.
[14:40:49] <n1> makes me think of rappers/hiphop
[14:40:49] <paulej72> s/thing/think/
[14:40:57] <paulej72> them too
[14:41:07] <n1> i dont link them either, i got one as a present a while ago, i had to bend the brim to wear it
[14:41:13] <n1> my big head also doesn't appreciate them :/
[14:42:16] <paulej72> I have a big hed and I don’t appreciate the low top hats that are popular now. the ones you linked to n1 seem to be the standard height ones
[14:42:38] <n1> yeah, i know the ones you mean
[14:42:47] <n1> finally nice to meet someone who can empathize :p
[14:45:07] <paulej72> well we will need to make sure mrcoolbp gets the proper ones into the SN store.
