[11:42:54] <janrinok> hi guys
[11:43:51] <Azrael> yoyo janrinok how you?
[11:44:55] <Azrael> internet being a bit slow here, will try and push some stories through if lag allows
[11:53:37] <janrinok> Hi Azrael - I'm fine but tired. They did some work on slashcode and the update took place overnight. They are aware of the the problem - but the solution evades them for the time being. How's your holiday going?
[12:08:55] <Azrael> What's the problem? Hol going well so far, back home in 2 days
[12:09:55] <janrinok> Azrael: I've moved your story until a bit later. I don't expect that we will get many more subs today so we had better spread the ones that we have out a bit. We got down to 4 stories overnight - and 2 of them were probably not usable!
[12:10:57] <janrinok> Azrael: I'm not sure of the details of the problem, but the Varnish Cache Server does not seem to like the update. If you don't log in you get a much quicker response that if you do - but we haven't got that option as Eds. :)
[12:14:24] <Azrael> ahhh :/
[12:14:32] <Azrael> yeah, saw you rejigged timings :D
[12:16:45] <janrinok> Azrael: well, enjoy your next few days of holidays while you can? Any major highlights or disasters?
[12:17:27] <Azrael> nah, all peaceful and relaxing
[12:18:09] <janrinok> n1 is also away, so your next target isn't making any significant lead on you :)
[12:21:44] <Azrael> hehe :D
[12:21:57] <Azrael> still well away though
[12:22:29] <Azrael> at 4 or 5 a day would take me about 2 months to catch up... assuming he doesn't do anything :D

[12:23:35] <Bytram> janrinok: g'morning!
[12:25:19] <Azrael> janrinok: oops, clashing with you on the NSA AI one
[12:25:25] <Azrael> I'll close without saving :D
[12:26:11] <Bytram> Azrael: g'day!
[12:26:27] <Azrael> Bytram: hey hey!
[12:26:49] <janrinok> I'll apologise too Az , not sure who started it first.
[12:27:01] <Bytram> Hay! Hay! (Feed the sheep!) =)
[12:27:42] <Azrael> janrinok: probably simultaaneous :D
[12:28:11] <janrinok> lol - quite possibly!
[12:46:27] <Azrael> need to have a chat with some coders and see how hof.pl works, really ought to give 0.5 per 2nd edit ;)
[12:46:38] <Azrael> (if it doesn't)
[12:48:15] <Bytram> Azrael: are you talking about number of stories submitted? If so, and AFAIK, it does not give any credit for story edits/reviews... only the original Author gets the credit.
[12:50:30] <Bytram> By the way, although I see no difference in my FireFox browser, it makes a big difference on my mobile phone whether story paragraphs are separated by "<br> <br>" or by "<p>"... only the "<p>" properly formats paragraphs with a blank line between paragraphs.
[12:51:21] <Bytram> I do a search for "br> <br" and replace the highlighted text with "p" and it all comes out very nicely. =)
[13:02:09] <Bytram> janrinok: Your Uber story just went "live"... did you intend for that to post tomorrow?
[13:12:30] <janrinok> Yes
[13:13:13] <janrinok> Its showing in my stories list as tomorrow
[13:13:14] <Bytram> janrinok: whew! I changed it to reflect that.
[13:13:25] <janrinok> Ah - thanks
[13:13:36] <Bytram> it went live on the main page and I thought... huh?
[13:13:46] <Bytram> btw, I updated the title on the warrant canary story
[13:14:12] <Bytram> it had said that the canary would drop deaad at the first whiff of a surveillance court order
[13:14:12] <janrinok> good spot - I was having to reshuffle stories so as not to get too many from one submitter in a row.
[13:14:33] <janrinok> yes, very deaaaaad - thanks again!
[13:14:37] <Bytram> but, since it actually has a 6-month delay... that's one slow-breathing canary!
[13:15:00] <Bytram> no problem! happy to help!
[13:18:09] <janrinok> That gets the next 12 hours covered :) Thanks to you both for the help Azrael and Bytram
[13:18:30] <Bytram> janrinok++ thanks to YOU for pushing things along!
[13:18:30] <Bender> karma - janrinok: 12
[13:18:34] <Bytram> btw, how's things?
[13:19:01] <janrinok> I'm very tired, and S is not too well which is keeping me busy when not pushing out stories.
[13:19:14] <janrinok> Yourself?
[13:19:29] <Bytram> sorry to hear about S. She is so fortunate to have such a dedicated and lving man in her life.
[13:19:51] <janrinok> was that living man or loving man? lol
[13:20:11] <Bytram> LOL! Blegh!!!! L_O_ving!
[13:20:13] <janrinok> I don't think that she would want a dead one!
[13:20:22] <Bytram> you might have a career in editing!
[13:20:38] <janrinok> Having seen my last 3 posts - I doubt it"!
[13:20:42] <Bytram> LOL!
[13:20:57] <Bytram> got a second before you go?
[13:21:02] <janrinok> sure
[13:21:27] <Bytram> I just made some minor edits to the autism story... http://soylentnews.org
[13:21:28] <Cereal> ^ 04SN article 03 Close 04(ID comments):
[13:21:59] <janrinok> OK - do you want me to look at it again - I trust you to make edits, you know!
[13:22:06] <Bytram> take a look and let me know if you see the "&mdash;" displayed correctly. there should be three places.
[13:22:41] <Bytram> looked good to me, but I wanted outside confirmation. It's part of the fixes that went into yesterday's site update.
[13:22:55] <janrinok> I get an error on that story now - it doesn't exist any more...
[13:23:15] <Bytram> wuh?
[13:23:26] <Bytram> hmm, try this: http://soylentnews.org
[13:23:26] <Cereal> ^ 04SN article 03 Close 04(ID comments):
[13:23:50] <janrinok> Hang on - something strange is happening....
[13:24:08] <Bytram> hrrrm, you're prolly logged in with "httpS" and that link was with "http" (No "S"), so you got logged out, I'll bet.
[13:24:53] <janrinok> possibly but I don't think so - perhaps they are still trying to fix bugs from last night's update
[13:25:02] <Bytram> try this one,tehn: https://soylentnews.org
[13:25:03] <Cereal> ^ 04SN article 03 Close 04(ID comments):
[13:25:14] <Bytram> s/tehn/ hen/
[13:25:41] <janrinok> I've got 2 'full' mdashes and 1 double hyphen.
[13:26:32] <Bytram> oh! I missed one, brb
[13:26:47] <janrinok> the second one - after 'unusual' - is still a double hyphen
[13:27:16] <Bytram> yup. I see it... I can fix it... just a sec.
[13:27:39] <Bytram> okay, refresh. should be gould
[13:28:01] <Bytram> shood be good? English is funny!
[13:28:39] <janrinok> Yes, looks good. Thanks again. Damn I've posted 16 stories in the last 36 hours
[13:29:05] <Bytram> WOW! that's gotta be some kinda record!
[13:29:28] <Bytram> we are so fortunate to have your here! THANK YOU!
[13:29:34] <Bytram> s/your/you/
[13:30:24] <janrinok> Maybe - the holiday season is beginning to hurt a little. It reminds me of April/May when LamX and I were all alone for a few weeks. I'll be pleased when things settle down a little.
[13:30:27] <Bytram> janrinok: so, the whole point of that was to verify that many of those wierd character bugs should be behind us now. Let TheMightyBuzzard know if you find any bugs.
[13:31:07] <Bytram> janrinok: yeah, I was maxed out with work stuff and UTF-8 testing for the past couple weeks.
[13:31:43] <janrinok> Well, the stories that are coming in are still full of UTF fails - but perhaps they are historical.
[13:32:26] <janrinok> Bytram: that comment wasn't a criticism of you - I hope that you didn't think I was getting at you?!
[13:33:45] <Bytram> oh, not at all!
[13:35:08] <janrinok> Just been looking at #soylent - TMB is still fighting the 503s!
[13:35:17] <Bytram> yep, prolly historical. Got saved to the Database with the old format... new stories should be better, I think
[13:35:23] <Bytram> yyup
