[18:21:50] <TK> howdy
[18:22:00] <TK> Typo in http://soylentnews.org
[18:22:01] <monopoly> ^ 04SN article 03 Microsoft has Lost $1.73B on the Surface Since its Debut in 2012 04(22 comments):
[18:22:16] <TK> In the summary
[18:22:17] <TK> $1.049 million
[18:22:21] <TK> should be billion
[18:22:25] <TK> With a "B"
[18:22:55] <mrcoolbp> TK: it's in the article, maybe we should do a [sic]
[18:23:01] <mrcoolbp> ?
[18:23:53] <mrcoolbp> or a $1.049 [Billion]
[18:30:30] <mrcoolbp> LaminatorX ^^^^^
[18:30:53] <mrcoolbp> you signed off on it, do you want to fix it or should I ?
[18:33:14] <LaminatorX> I'll fix, thanks.
[18:33:56] <TK> Maybe it was originally, but i's been fixed now
[18:34:27] <mrcoolbp> TK: I'm seeing different: http://www.techsecurityupdate.com
[18:34:27] <monopoly> ^ 03Microsoft?s Surface Business Has Lost An Estimated $1.7 Billion Since Debut | Tech Security Update
[18:34:44] <mrcoolbp> 2nd Par: "Keizer did his own back-of-the-envelope calculation to estimate that Microsoft has lost $1.73 billion since the Surface’s debut in 2012. The total loss for FY2014 was $680 million, and it was $1.049 million for the year before, according to Keizer."
[18:34:49] <TK> I see
[18:35:00] <TK> I was reading the computer world article
[18:35:04] <mrcoolbp> = )
[18:35:15] <mrcoolbp> gotta look at what is being quoted
[18:35:46] <mrcoolbp> I think we are going to make the blockquotes more obvious in the next code-release
[18:36:29] <TK> The indent works well enough for that, imo
[18:37:13] <TK> It was my click-happy confusion
[18:38:01] <mrcoolbp> TK: yeah but check out the nested blockquotes on these comments: http://dev.soylentnews.org
[18:38:01] <monopoly> ^ 04SN (dev) article 03 Zizbans 3rd test story 04(6 comments):
[18:38:04] <mrcoolbp> kinda cool
[18:38:18] <mrcoolbp> it's just a .75% transparency
[18:46:44] <mrcoolbp> LaminatorX: thank you
[18:47:09] <LaminatorX> Go team.
[18:56:08] <TK> I saw, it's pretty nifty
[18:56:46] <TK> Then I tried 5x nesting blockquotes and gave up
[18:57:14] <TK> Maybe I'll try it in N++ instead of the comment box
[19:06:36] <TK> For some reason I can only get three levels
[19:06:58] <mrcoolbp> same with me, TheMightBuzzard figured out how to do four, not sure how
[19:08:22] <TK> If you're still looking for nifty features to add, there's a plugin for reddit that lets you view comment source
[19:08:31] <TK> That would be a cool native feature.
[19:09:09] <TK> It might help some people with <a href...
