[01:54:46] <nick> how goes things?
[01:58:10] <Dopefish> busy
[01:58:42] <Dopefish> getting into year end stuff for payroll, which is like an all hands on deck deal
[01:59:01] <Dopefish> I do business intelligence reporting, and that gets hit hard around this time of year
[01:59:21] <Dopefish> yourself?
[02:01:58] <nick> that sounds unpleasant but it cant be avoided. i have been grinding at work the last few weeks also, doing a million things as ever (running/involved with several small businesses).
[02:02:22] <nick> a major client has paid and it's really killing us.

[13:41:36] <Azrael> yoyo
[13:50:31] <Blackmoore> we're getting a lot more news than tech this week
[13:52:08] <Blackmoore> my plan was to get in and approve 5 before the day is over
[13:52:49] <Blackmoore> looks like that's gonna need some work
[13:56:44] <Azrael> :D
[13:56:58] <Azrael> yeah, a challenege
[13:57:14] <Azrael> need more stuff about penises or farts
[13:57:18] <Azrael> (or not)
[13:57:46] <Azrael> and soon we might need a dedicated dinosaur page ;)
[13:57:58] <juggs> pinesis and forts surely! :D
[14:00:31] <Azrael> we could drag http://soylentnews.org out of the hold area ;)
[14:00:32] <NetCraft> ^ 04SN Submission by Anonymous Coward 03Penis-Shaped Popsicles That Explode In Your Mouth
[14:01:23] <juggs> uch
[14:29:33] <nick> afternoon
[14:32:04] * nick had no idea about this 'hold area'
[14:44:57] <Azrael> nick: now that you do have you worked out how to see it and move things to/from it ?
[14:45:39] <nick> yeah
[14:45:55] <Azrael> cool
[14:46:06] <nick> but as you seem to know what it's all about.... do you know what quik and back are for?
[14:46:23] <Azrael> not a clue :) they might be the same sort of thing...
[14:46:29] <nick> was talking to bytram about this yesterday, and we didn't reach a conclusion.
[14:46:51] <nick> from the SN wiki: "A drop-down list that allows a submission to be tagged as Back, Hold or Quik. [TODO Find out what they each mean/do] "
[14:47:03] <Azrael> ahh, same sort of thing, just other areas
[14:47:11] <Azrael> http://dev.soylentnews.org
[14:47:11] <NetCraft> ^ 03Dev.SN Submissions
[14:47:42] <Azrael> I guess we use them for whatever we want to use them for
[14:47:48] <Azrael> as long as we're all on same page
[14:48:44] <nick> i'm guessing any that are moved to those areas, are not viewable by normal accounts?
[14:48:56] <Azrael> that's my assumption
[14:49:09] <nick> i just signed out of dev and i cant see how to get to any that arn't 'none'
[14:49:37] <Azrael> I imagineif you have url of a submission you can still get to it..
[14:49:50] <nick> unless they have real functions i cant see why we'd need anything but 'hold'
[14:50:14] <Azrael> well.. hold might be useful for stuff being worked on but not ready to go
[14:50:28] <Azrael> I usually use it as a bin with plan to delete at later date
[14:50:45] <nick> can you save things in hold though?
[14:50:45] <Azrael> so one for each might be nice
[14:50:53] <Azrael> no idea
[14:50:55] <nick> this is part of the conversation with bytram
[14:50:56] <Azrael> I assume so
[14:51:06] <nick> Blackmoore started working on a sub but couldn't save it without moving it to the stories queue
[14:51:11] <nick> which is a problem most of us have had
[14:51:43] <Azrael> ahh
[14:51:46] <Azrael> I see what you mean
[14:52:01] <Blackmoore> yeah, lamX got it up to speed later.
[14:52:17] <nick> not up to speed enough, according to the comments ;)
[14:53:15] <Azrael> you can undisplay it... but yeah, goes to story list and out of hold queue :/
[14:53:59] <Azrael> ahh
[14:54:01] <Azrael> I think I have it
[14:54:29] <Azrael> ok, go to http://dev.soylentnews.org and look at the NRLB one - without doing anything to it, I'm gonna edit it
[14:54:30] <NetCraft> ^ 03Dev.SN Submissions
[14:54:37] <Azrael> (in hold queue)
[14:55:56] <Azrael> damn, no... I don't have it!!
[14:58:54] <Blackmoore> so lets see the first set of nexi should be dinosaurs, penis, social outrage
[14:58:55] <nick> heh
[14:58:59] <nick> slashcode wins again
[14:59:28] <nick> what about the social outrage surrounding dinosaur penis?
[15:00:41] <Azrael> Dinosaurs, Dinosaur Penises, Dinosaur Penis Outrage
[15:01:07] <nick> the dinosaur-penis-outrage dept.
[15:01:21] <nick> i want a story where that can be used
[15:01:41] <Blackmoore> devestated-self-image dept
[15:02:23] <Blackmoore> it would need a lead in like "With a penis as large as a city bus.."
[15:02:58] <Blackmoore> Pornstarasaurus..
[15:03:15] <nick> LOL

[16:28:22] <nick> i'm out for this afternoon/evening; should be back to edit some stories around 00:00 UTC
[16:29:00] <Blackmoore> cool. I'm trying to find some things to submit. the queue is too light for me
[16:29:27] <nick> yesterday was a slow news day, so im guessing today is too
[16:29:37] <mrcoolbp> going into the weekend too
[16:29:41] <mrcoolbp> = /
[16:29:41] <nick> hence why i only dropped in two submissions last night when the queue was low
[16:29:55] <nick> there was nothing inspiring in the rss bot feed
[16:36:20] <Blackmoore> http://www.nbcnews.com
[16:36:39] <Blackmoore> didnt we run this?
[16:38:02] -!- nick has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[16:38:45] <mrcoolbp> Blackmoore: not sure, sounds oddly familiar though
[16:40:16] <Blackmoore> it was up on science daily a couple days ago.
[16:46:26] <mattie_p> Hi mrcoolbp!
[16:46:33] <mrcoolbp> hey mattie_p
[16:46:35] <mrcoolbp> how goes it?
[16:46:59] <mattie_p> Pretty good. New job, settling in, its Friday. Life is good
[16:47:10] <mrcoolbp> yeah, gratz on the new job
[16:47:20] <mrcoolbp> nice to have you back sir.
[16:47:37] <mattie_p> Thanks. I should be on most weekdays at a minimum during workday
[16:47:50] <mrcoolbp> sweet
[16:47:59] <mrcoolbp> do you like the new job?
[16:48:32] <mattie_p> Awesome so far. Mostly a windows shop, but can't have everything
[16:48:47] <mattie_p> Nothing I haven't seen before anyway
[16:48:47] <mrcoolbp> my heart goes out to you
[16:49:49] <mattie_p> Thank you
[16:50:18] <mattie_p> I need to chat with you when you get a chance, so I can get my feet wet again
[16:50:51] <mrcoolbp> how can I help?
[16:53:28] <mattie_p> Just need to get acquainted with where we're at and what still needs doing. I'll check the wiki page again, too, but looking for a job here again
[16:54:13] <mrcoolbp> hmm
[17:53:50] <Blackmoore> Question. I have a meta article to ask the site where they get Science articles no links, just basically an "Ask Soylent"
[17:54:21] <Blackmoore> Should I throw it in the queue for today/this weekend or make it wait for monday
[18:54:47] <Azrael> shove it in today I say
[19:03:33] <Blackmoore> bam
[19:05:09] <Blackmoore> we're gonna need more content.
[19:07:48] <Blackmoore> i cant check the links on ederal Judge: Should Weed be on the Most-Dangerous List?
[19:07:55] <Blackmoore> verboten here in the office
[19:27:25] * Azrael is mock outraged at Blackmoore's article
[19:28:08] <Blackmoore> oh?
[19:29:10] * Azrael holds multiple science degrees and is thus clearly and expert in all science matters!! ;)
[19:29:19] <Azrael> (but not at typing)
[19:29:36] <Azrael> but seriously, I like the article :)
[19:32:24] <mrcoolbp> blackmoore: you know about #rss-bot
[19:32:26] <mrcoolbp> ?
[19:32:43] <Azrael> mrcoolbp: that was one of my thoughts I was going to mention (but I forgot channel name)
[19:33:08] * Azrael needs to add it to his auto connect list
[19:35:45] <mrcoolbp> Blackmoore: /join #rss-bot
[19:36:52] <Azrael> do it Blackmoore !
[19:53:09] <Blackmoore> i know OF the bot.
[19:53:26] <Blackmoore> but i tend to go to sources i like
[19:53:58] <Azrael> mrcoolbp: whose bot is it?
[19:55:50] <mrcoolbp> juggs actually
[19:56:34] <Azrael> juggs: what software if your bot run by? (I'm interested in running a similar one on another server)
[19:56:48] <Blackmoore> Azrael: feel free to add to mine since it is clearly a meta post from a staff member
[19:58:15] <Azrael> :)
[20:03:00] <juggs> Azrael, eggdrop + rss-synd plugin. http://wiki.soylentnews.org plus some dependencies on a couple of tcltk packages. It's pretty much off the shelf (other than config) - only thing I've changed was to add a couple of lines to the rss-synd to sort the output of !rss
[20:03:00] <NetCraft> ^ 04Wiki: 03IRC
[20:04:54] <juggs> I turned off all the standard eggdrop channel control stuff, so literally all it is doing is the rss feeds. Happy to share config and changes for the !rss sort thing. I suppose I should contribute that to the rss-synd github but I've never used git :D
[20:05:56] <Azrael> thanks :) I'm running a supybot and the rss stuff sucks big time
[20:06:14] <juggs> Have to use eggdrop v1.8 if you want ipv6 support, otherwise eggdrop v1.6 is fine.
[20:06:40] <juggs> v1.8 is marked as a dev release but it's been stable for years ~shrug~
[20:08:07] <juggs> Yeh - I tried a few plugins (that sucked badly) and settled on rss-synd, it seems to work fine.
[21:32:21] <Blackmoore> i am really mused this week. we beat a number of places on some of the subjects.
[21:34:31] <juggs> All we need now is to ~first~ :D
[21:34:49] <juggs> there should be a "be" in there somewhere
[21:59:05] <Blackmoore> that's going to reqire original content
[21:59:17] <Blackmoore> and yeah. we need to get all over that
[21:59:54] <juggs> no doubt it will be birthed when it is good and ready :)
[22:14:58] <Blackmoore> well. i'll see if i can get dopefish on the horn saturday.
[22:16:01] <Blackmoore> as much as I would like the nexus stuff - there are ways to move forward without updetting too many people
[22:27:19] <Blackmoore> ok gnight
