[17:30:18] <janrinok> Hi Blackmoore - only 2 hours late in replying to you! And hello to anyone else
[17:31:27] <Blackmoore> hehe
[17:31:40] <janrinok> better late than never though....
[17:32:38] <janrinok> are you well?
[17:35:59] <Blackmoore> ok. busy . i keep getting interupted, even my interupted interutions are getting interupted..
[17:37:12] <janrinok> I yeah I've just backread #Soylent - it seems to be a common affliction at present! I'm technically sick with exhaustion but I think that I am over the worst of it now, after doing little for a few days.
[17:46:34] <Blackmoore> a lot of that going around. i was really bad the last couple of weeks, but this week hasnt been as bad.
[17:48:12] <janrinok> It seems very quiet on IRC - I'm wondering if we are all feeling a bit sluggish. It has been a busy 6 months or so.
[17:51:09] <Blackmoore> i think that we both sluggish and distracted. i have a a pile of work to get through and i cant keep my mind on it

[17:51:11] <monopoly> ^ 03Boring Magazine design contest winner! - Boing Boing
[17:52:01] <janrinok> lol - a magazine I can relate to!
[17:53:58] -!- Roll [Roll!~Roll___@80.149.ir.hr] has joined #editorial
[17:54:26] <janrinok> hi Roll - welcome to this quiet oasis of calm and peacefulness
[17:54:40] -!- Roll [Roll!~Roll___@80.149.ir.hr] has parted #editorial
[17:54:51] * juggs rakes the gravel
[17:55:16] <janrinok> seems that Roll didn't appreciate this calm corner of IRC
[17:55:47] <janrinok> ....how are you juggs? Can I be the second to join your group of pigeon feeding mumblers please?
[17:57:37] <juggs> I'm absolutely fine thanks. It's not really a group you can wilfully join, one day you just discover yourself in the group feeding the pigeons and mumbling quietly. :D
[17:57:42] <juggs> How's things with you?
[17:59:05] <janrinok> I'm already there then! I'm slowly recovering thx. The doc has told me to do the absolute minimum for 2 weeks, lots of rest and get plenty of sleep.
[18:00:52] <juggs> eat well, sleep well - sounds like a good plan.
[18:01:37] <janrinok> yep - still have to look after S but I'm coping.
[18:10:14] <juggs> do you frequently look after letters of the alphabet? :)
[18:12:16] <janrinok> Ah no - S (Sophie) is my wife - she is disabled and I'm her full time carer. Its the reason that I took early retirement. She is pretty much wheelchair/bed bound nowadays and has limited muscle control. But there is no reason why you should have known that - I should have been a bit clearer in my last post :)
[18:17:22] <juggs> Wow - that must be hard work and mentally / emotionally draining.Do you get any respite?
[18:18:18] <janrinok> Not much - which is why the doc has said I am suffering from exhaustion. I just have to pace things - like not editing as much this week!
[18:23:09] <juggs> Sounds like a start
[18:23:35] <janrinok> lol - I've still done a few stories but don't tell anybody....
[18:23:58] <juggs> my ummm... fingers are sealed!
[18:24:18] <janrinok> lol
[18:37:08] -!- janrinok has quit [Quit: leaving]
[20:55:12] <Blackmoore> Um. Laminator.. about The State of Security in a Post-Secrecy World.. I know we wanted original stuff but. um that guy is incoerant..
[20:55:17] <Blackmoore> incoherent
[21:02:47] <juggs> omfg - it's a Bennett post! I'm shocked by the fact that it doesn't run to 10 pages.
[21:04:42] <Blackmoore> eh i read that, and i feel dumber for doing so
[21:06:11] <juggs> Let's see how the commentariat react :D
[21:15:57] -!- LaminatorX [LaminatorX!~18d900fb@Soylent/Staff/Editor/LaminatorX] has joined #editorial
[21:15:57] -!- mode/#editorial [+v LaminatorX] by SkyNet
[21:17:59] <Blackmoore> it's pretty ugly.
[21:18:23] <LaminatorX> What's ugly?
[21:19:31] * LaminatorX reads back through the logs.
[21:20:18] <juggs> last few lines should suffice :) You not on the bouncer LaminatorX ? Makes scrollback easier.
[21:21:44] <LaminatorX> It struck me as a bit different, but clearly the reader response is overwhelmingly negative.
[21:22:09] <LaminatorX> This guy also seems to have a history of which I am not aware.
[21:23:03] <juggs> Quite prolific in both articles and word count over on /.
[21:23:13] <juggs> If indeed it is the self same Bennett
[21:24:32] <juggs> I wouldn't sweat the negativity. We have to push the boundaries of what we accept to see what the community like and dislike - if we don't we'll end up in a very narrow, tedious rut.
[21:25:31] <Blackmoore> did you read that? i'm all for original content but I'm not even sure there is a train of thought
[21:26:56] <juggs> I have just now got the 3rd paragraph - and I'm beginning to wonder if it is not the output of some bot. wth does this even mean... "people in the security industry who blew up their entire call-stacks messing with the Ackermann function"
[21:27:17] <juggs> Oh no I've blown my call-stack.
[21:27:23] <Blackmoore> see. that's what I'm talking about.
[21:27:34] <Blackmoore> it's nonsense.
[21:28:07] <juggs> ok... I'm venturing into the comments...
[21:28:45] <LaminatorX> Oh, I read it, and excised some rape metaphors. I actually found the gonzo tone a bit refreshing. Clearly that opinion is not shared.
[21:29:44] <Blackmoore> ... ok I hadnt thought about it as gonzo reporting
[21:31:34] <Blackmoore> LaminatorX: if you gotta excise rape metaphores .. and this is whats left.. eh..
[21:32:23] <juggs> I think Sir Garlon has called it in the first stanza of comments - it may well be a Bennett spoof-a-like.
[21:35:47] <LaminatorX> Alright. I have posted a mea culpa, and am now off to pick up my kids.
[21:36:07] <juggs> :D OK
[21:37:27] -!- LaminatorX has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
[21:39:45] <juggs> Blackmoore, you still at work?
[21:40:03] <Blackmoore> yeah
[21:40:24] <Blackmoore> here till 8pm est tonight
[21:41:02] <juggs> right-o.
[21:41:27] <Blackmoore> of course i have a pile of work to get through
[21:44:11] <juggs> so crack on and don't get distracted by me :D
[21:44:29] * juggs blows the air horn
[21:44:55] <juggs> oops.... I was just... putting it away
[21:45:11] * juggs creeps out of the editors box before taking a kicking
[21:46:58] <Blackmoore> *snort*
[21:47:22] <Blackmoore> (starts to tune bagpipes)
[21:56:34] <Blackmoore> my god.. i just realized that submitter was chanelling sarah palin.
[21:59:06] -!- Woods has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
[22:00:38] <juggs> lol - back to work Blackmoore - I see you skiving on that there IRQ thang!
[22:40:13] <Blackmoore> ah the slave driver
[22:44:40] <juggs> better, you managed 40 minutes that time Blackmoore, now back to it, that endless inbox won't resolve itself you know. BTW - welcome to hell... I believe we have openings in the pushing a rock up a hill and having your liver pecked out daily departments if the ever overflowing inbox is proving too much! Do let me know at your next appraisal :D
[22:48:55] <Blackmoore> wait. if that liver pecked out thing isnt part of my job discription.. why am i doing that now?
[23:07:17] <juggs> you did read the small print on the back of the contract pages before you signed right?
[23:08:33] <Blackmoore> ah right.. additional duties as assigned by manager
[23:11:51] <juggs> that's the one... aka the "who's the bitch if you sign this?" clauses.
[23:16:36] <Blackmoore> mm.. I guess i'll just have to "take proactive measures, to ensure that buisness processes are not interuped", and just strangle the buzzard.
[23:19:03] <juggs> So how does an extra week's paid leave and a 10K rise sound.. oh and a corner office?
[23:29:10] <Blackmoore> *sigh* that beats the $1/hr pay CUT i took last year
[23:49:47] <juggs> fine, all we need is you signature right here Mr Blackmoore..... nooo don't worry about that stuff on the back it's just the usual legalese BS ~smiles~
[23:50:25] * juggs mutters - I think we just got his grand-kids too guys.... he's about to sign ~titter~
[23:54:21] <Blackmoore> I'll just use this special pen i keep for just this type of contract.. (starts to sign but pen and contract bust into flames)
[23:54:37] <Blackmoore> damn. that again
[23:55:00] <Blackmoore> ok I'm out.
[23:55:07] <Blackmoore> g'night juggs
[23:56:11] <juggs> lol take care Blackmoore - I'm here all week :D
[23:56:17] Blackmoore is now known as blcakmoore|afk
[23:58:55] <blcakmoore|afk> i'll tip the waitress.
