[03:37:28] <mrcoolbp> Azrael: agreed with the "memebers of community" comment
[03:37:40] <mrcoolbp> let me figure out how to edit this doc here

[13:12:11] <janrinok> hi guys
[13:19:28] <Azrael> yoyo
[13:20:41] -!- Bytram|away has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[13:21:17] <janrinok> Az hi, how's things?
[13:23:36] <Azrael> pretty good, watching an IT guy sitting at my desk replacing my 5yo machine for a spanking new one :D
[13:23:55] <Azrael> How is you?
[13:26:41] <janrinok> I'm OK but tired. A new machine! Has it got go-faster stripes and blinken lights?
[13:28:22] <Azrael> I hope so or I'm demanding they swap it for one that does!!
[13:28:29] <janrinok> lol
[13:28:55] <janrinok> I've rescheduled some of your stories to 90 mins separation.
[13:29:52] <Azrael> cool :)
[13:30:04] <Azrael> lean pickings in the stories :/
[13:30:29] <janrinok> I'll go hit #rss-bot and get some more once I've posted a few.
[13:34:02] <Azrael> I've noticed a few good-enough stories coming in with random submitter URLs to IMDB. I've been stripping the link and using them in some cases
[13:34:09] <Azrael> just wanted to flag that up
[13:34:48] <janrinok> thx - I've seen that too. Its normally an AC who thinks that it will get past us. But, as you say, the content is often OK.
[13:35:44] <janrinok> You like your 2 hours spacing don't you?
[13:35:51] <Azrael> I assume the submissions queue, as it is accessible to anyone, if it has the imdb url then that already link farms
[13:36:06] <Azrael> lol - doh, yes! yes I do
[13:37:35] <Azrael> I'm going to claim poor maths skills where I can just about do +2
[13:38:03] <janrinok> lol
[13:38:17] <janrinok> your new computer will help there.....
[13:38:31] <Azrael> w00t
[13:44:57] <janrinok> Have you switched it on yet?
[13:49:58] <Azrael> grr
[13:50:02] <Azrael> won't let me submit a story
[13:50:17] <janrinok> send it back!!!
[13:50:37] <Azrael> aaah fecking heck I wasn't putting a topic
[13:50:51] <Azrael> damn you submit page, tell me where I go wrong!!
[13:51:15] <Azrael> I think that's happened to me before too
[13:51:18] <Azrael> Do I learn? NO!!!
[13:51:22] <janrinok> ah, machine 1 human 0
[13:51:40] <janrinok> try hitting it!
[13:52:15] <janrinok> You have to let them know who's boss very early on, otherwise there is no telling what it might do later...
[13:54:49] <janrinok> ah - I'm a Brit - it's time for tea!
[13:55:31] <Azrael> lol
[13:55:37] <Azrael> I just got myself a mug of tea too
[13:57:57] <Azrael> on submission list, what is the numbe rin brackets next to our names?
[14:01:24] <janrinok> its your Karma level
[14:01:32] <janrinok> 50 is the maximum
[14:02:05] <janrinok> You get karma for making a submission - but not for any editing tasks. It's very unfair!
[14:04:50] <Azrael> ahh
[14:05:03] <Azrael> for some reason I thought my karma would be much lower
[14:05:33] <Azrael> well doh, if I just bothered to look at my page
[14:05:39] <janrinok> no, why should it be. It depends on your participation, commenting, moderating (I think?), submissions etc
[14:05:45] <Azrael> I'm not sure I'm having a good day
[14:05:53] <janrinok> lol
[14:10:51] <janrinok> It's going to be a bad weekend if the submissions are as poor as this on a Thursday!.
[14:11:21] <janrinok> I wonder if it coincides with the holidays or whether people just can't find the stories?
[14:17:38] <Azrael> hmm maybe former
[14:21:04] <janrinok> I think that, between us, we did a good bit of story production there...
[14:22:44] <Azrael> :D
[14:23:10] <Azrael> yeah, I think one of us did more of the heavy lifting
[14:23:38] <janrinok> nope - about evens I would say. sub'ing or editing all counts.
[14:23:42] <Azrael> :)
[14:24:09] <Azrael> and even being the unwitting target of a submission
[14:24:38] <Azrael> the blog post linked in this submission/article http://soylentnews.org was mine :)
[14:24:39] <monopoly> ^ 04SN article 03 Five Years Of The Pirate Party in the UK 04(8 comments):
[14:24:55] <Azrael> and I totally didn't feed it to Ihsi - was surprised when it cam einto the queue
[14:24:56] <janrinok> congrats!
[14:27:49] <janrinok> First Post! (in August)
[14:28:27] <Azrael> :D
[14:30:17] <janrinok> ...my post - your story. What a team!
[14:31:08] <Azrael> hehe :D
[14:31:51] <janrinok> Have you made the 'forgot to change month' mistake on the date yet? I have!
[14:35:57] <Azrael> I've done the forgot to change day or time and make it live mistake, and v v v v quickly fixed
[14:36:55] <janrinok> Apparently, I even mistyped the year once and released a story in 1970 or something... But, I don't remember doint that one - everyone else seems to though!
[14:37:40] <Azrael> lol
[14:38:14] <janrinok> M attie _p trained me - he has all the dirt. (nick mistyped on purpose because he lurks....)
[14:38:16] <Azrael> maybe we need to leave time capsules and push stories through for 2099
[14:38:48] <janrinok> ..about the latest quad-core - which will be laughable by 2099 I hope!
[14:39:11] <Azrael> hehehe
[14:40:24] <janrinok> how's your new machine?
[14:40:42] <Azrael> lightning fast
[14:41:35] <janrinok> by Monday, it will seem to be slowing down, and in a week's time you'll be looking for a new machine. Unless they give you the old one back again - then you remember what 'slow' really is.
[14:42:33] <Azrael> two i7-3770 3.4GHz quad-cores with 16GB ram
[14:43:51] <janrinok> nice - just imagine how fast you can collect porn^w^wcompile programs with that.
[14:43:58] -!- Tachyon_ has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[14:44:01] <Azrael> hehehe
[14:49:09] <Azrael> 10 billion things to reinstall
[14:49:29] <janrinok> it is Win or linux?
[14:49:35] <Azrael> win7 :/
[14:49:46] <janrinok> that's better than win8
[14:50:24] <Azrael> v true
[14:56:20] <Azrael> my last machine was 2GB RAM and a single core. So this new one is 16 times better.
[14:56:31] <Azrael> assuming my maths is right :D
[14:57:17] <janrinok> is it also quieter. One of my most powerfull machines is as noisy as hell when working hard.
[15:04:21] <mrcoolbp> Azrael: what kind of box did you get?
[15:04:35] <mrcoolbp> bramd? DIY?
[15:04:41] * mrcoolbp needs a new one
[15:05:21] <janrinok> Oh its a Packard Bell quad core with 4 GB - not in your league at all, but the fans sure make a lot of noise!
[15:05:39] <janrinok> sry mrcoolbp - I misread that. Hi to you
[15:06:00] <mrcoolbp> lol, hi!
[15:08:06] <janrinok> mrcoolbp: sry for yesterday - not in the best of form. Getting a bit tired at present, but that is no excuse. :)
[15:08:31] * mrcoolbp forgets
[15:08:37] <mrcoolbp> what happened?
[15:08:50] * mrcoolbp makes coffee to assist in memory matters
[15:09:07] <janrinok> our discussion regarding SuperSys's or whatever...
[15:10:25] <Azrael> Dell - two i7-3770 3.4GHz quad-cores with 16GB ram
[15:10:28] <mrcoolbp> lol
[15:10:33] <Azrael> mrcoolbp: ^^
[15:10:38] <mrcoolbp> Azrael, how much?
[15:11:04] <Azrael> mrcoolbp: work machine, at work, so no idea
[15:11:49] <mrcoolbp> ah
[15:12:20] <Azrael> damn, the badusb story made it to /. first
[15:13:01] <mrcoolbp> = (
[15:13:21] <janrinok> but ours will be better written and look nicer :)
