[14:35:42] <janrinok> hi guys
[14:51:24] <mrcoolbp> janrinok!
[14:51:31] <mrcoolbp> how are ya doing?
[14:52:47] <janrinok> mrcoolbp: getting better slowly thanks. How about you?
[14:53:01] <mrcoolbp> not bad, just busy = /
[14:53:15] <mrcoolbp> gratz on the 1K posts BTW
[14:53:36] <janrinok> Thx - it just sort of happened :)
[14:53:41] <mrcoolbp> nice work, you've posted nearly 25% of our total stories = )
[14:53:47] <mrcoolbp> er, more than
[14:55:20] <janrinok> Wait until I get back up to speed again in a few weeks time. They (the medical profession) have decided that I was exhausted and are arranging for S to go into a respite home for a couple of weeks just so that I can have a break and complete my recovery. I post when I can but keep getting told off when the nurses catch me if they think that I am not resting enough!
[14:55:48] <mrcoolbp> lol, can't they just give you a laptop?
[14:56:01] <mrcoolbp> one cannot rest all day long
[14:56:19] <janrinok> They specifically told me not to use a laptop! I spend too much time programming and not idling my brain!
[14:56:46] <mrcoolbp> well, yes idling is fine for a break, but I'd go crazy if I just idled all day, idle hands and all
[14:57:23] <janrinok> I have to do household chores in the morning (slowly!) and then the afternoon is split between resting and recreation.
[14:57:35] <paulej72> go crazy, impossible you are already here :)
[14:57:53] <janrinok> hji paulej72 - hope that you are well?
[14:57:58] <mrcoolbp> truly true good pj72
[14:58:05] <paulej72> yes
[14:58:47] <janrinok> good to hear. SN should use me as an advert for what can go wrong if you don't balance your life properly!
[14:59:18] <janrinok> paulej72: by the way, there is spam in the sub queue if you get a bored....
[15:00:07] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: balance is important, sometime I just have to logout, but it's tough because I want to make sure everything is running smoothly
[15:00:43] <janrinok> yep - when I see an empty story queue I feel as though I should be editing something!
[15:01:27] <paulej72> fuck I have no clue how to stop thoes spammers. The shit they post if fully random.
[15:02:22] <janrinok> paulej72: if you prefer, we can just delete them as we see them? Is it worth a try?
[15:02:45] <paulej72> well I put a ban on that ipid.
[15:03:34] <janrinok> Are they using proxies or is a small group of random IPs?
[15:03:53] <paulej72> large group of random IPs
[15:04:10] <janrinok> oops, my mistook - large group then!
[15:04:28] <paulej72> one or two posts per ip. this particular one had 4 posts and 2 subs
[15:04:50] <janrinok> Ah, I didn't see the posts
[15:06:01] <janrinok> well that is the end of my subs for the day. Although I think that chatting on IRC is permissable without the Nursing Gestapo getting too upset.
[15:06:50] <janrinok> mrcoolbp: how is the swag performing. As good as you had hoped?
[15:07:10] <mrcoolbp> no
[15:07:17] <mrcoolbp> but subscriptions are doing pretty well
[15:07:37] <janrinok> sry to hear that. Any particular lines doing well, or is it just not catching anyone's interest?
[15:08:02] <mrcoolbp> well, it's not bad, around 20 orders or so netting us about $100 usd
[15:08:31] <janrinok> If you have any bright ideas on how to donate anonymously, I would be interested in hearing them.
[15:08:36] <mrcoolbp> but we are doing decent. The funding progress bar is misleading; we included cash to pay back michael and matt, a lawyer in the future, a cpa, AND server costs
[15:08:51] <mrcoolbp> currently, it looks like we will be able to cover server costs, but not the others just yet
[15:11:17] <janrinok> mrcoolbp: do we have a postal address for the company?
[15:11:28] <mrcoolbp> yes, why?
[15:12:17] <janrinok> well, sending $100 in an envelope would be a pretty anonymous way for me to add to your subs
[15:12:34] <mrcoolbp> we support bitcoin as well now = )
[15:13:07] <janrinok> don't know enough about it - and I am paranoid about my privacy.
[15:13:21] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: it's a kind offer, but we can't accept donations
[15:13:40] <janrinok> Ahm yes, I recall that debate now that you mention it....
[15:14:33] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: if you can find a bitcoin atm, you might be able to buy bitcoin with cash, then buy as many subs as you like, that should be completely annon as you don't have anything associated with yourself in your SN account
[15:15:01] <mrcoolbp> (make a throw-away email, make a new SN shill account, and connect through TOR for extra credit = )
[15:15:22] <janrinok> I live in the middle of nowhere - a bitcoin atm sounds like fairy dust - but I'll take a look around.
[15:16:02] <mrcoolbp> yeah, it's weird as bitcoin seems awesome until you actually try to go to one of the bitcoin "vendors" which require the name of your first born, etc.
[15:18:07] <janrinok> I'm being given stern looks so I'd better do and do something meaningless for a while. Give my regards and best wishes to the team - I'm still around and, to quote an old film/movie, - "I'll be back!"
