[00:00:15] <NotSanguine|Out> Good. Another easily amused soul.
[00:00:57] <NotSanguine|Out> But about the slashtags -- are there any others I shouldn't use?
[00:01:22] <mrcoolbp> let's start with slash-break
[00:01:33] <NotSanguine|Out> Or is that something to be decided by the AEIC and/or the editorial group as a whole?
[00:01:35] <mrcoolbp> so it looks like it pageinates stuff, which is good to know
[00:02:08] <mrcoolbp> but your goal was to do the "after the break" thing
[00:02:17] <mrcoolbp> we do that with the extended copy
[00:02:41] <mrcoolbp> I wouldn't say that was long enough to require 2 pages (maybe if it was 2-3 times that size we could consider that)
[00:02:47] <NotSanguine|Out> Which I did with the "extended copy' bit. However, that wasn't obviously working while in the MEP or preview modes
[00:02:53] <mrcoolbp> but we should mess around with it on dev first to see how it owrks
[00:03:24] <mrcoolbp> NotSanguine|Out: yes, it doesn't show in the MEP, BUT, it does show you the "[Edit]" button where the break is
[00:03:38] <NotSanguine|Out> So I looked around for something that "worked" and found that.
[00:03:48] <NotSanguine|Out> I see that now.
[00:04:29] <mrcoolbp> okay, so we can test that in the meantime, what other tags should we take a look at?
[00:05:09] <NotSanguine|Out> I don't know. That was the one I found which "seemed" to meet my needs. I didn't pay close attention to the rest.
[00:06:04] <NotSanguine|Out> Perhaps that's something I (and/or others) could do -- go through that doc and see if there are other useful tags, then test and publicize them
[00:06:36] <NotSanguine|Out> to the editors, that is
[00:06:37] <mrcoolbp> lemme look at the link
[00:08:43] <mrcoolbp> hmm, "The SLASH-RELATED tag" might be useful, but it's extra work
[00:09:26] <mrcoolbp> User tag " <SLASH-USER UID="6"> " we should probably test
[00:09:42] <NotSanguine|Out> I figured that doc was required reading for editors. I guess not. :)
[00:09:57] <mrcoolbp> I just think we haven't messed around with most of those
[00:10:05] <mrcoolbp> the story tag we might want to test as well
[00:11:29] <NotSanguine|Out> IT seems that much of that functionality is handled by the back-end
[00:11:41] <NotSanguine|Out> Unless we want to customize
[00:12:00] <mrcoolbp> oops just realize "At" shouldn't be capitalized = )
[00:12:54] <NotSanguine|Out> An interesting bit about <slash-break> is that you can specify page numbers in the URLs
[00:13:22] <NotSanguine|Out> you are correct. prepositions shouldn't be capitalized
[00:13:40] <mrcoolbp> fix it quick!!!
[00:13:43] <mrcoolbp> = )
[00:14:12] <mrcoolbp> yeah, I saw that about the slash-break, it's a neat function, might be useful for NCommander's novella posts
[00:14:16] * mrcoolbp ducks
[00:14:18] <NotSanguine|Out> done
[00:14:31] <mrcoolbp> yay
[00:14:55] <mrcoolbp> hopefully no one noticed, but I conveniently didn't edit the story
[00:15:12] <mrcoolbp> mwa hahahaha
[00:15:30] <NotSanguine|Out> You know, it could be quite useful at times. With longer posts, not that I'm looking for Bennett Haselton to come over here.
[00:16:20] <NotSanguine|Out> It was my bad anyway. I've got an itchy finger on the shift key
[00:16:41] <NotSanguine|Out> Know What I Mean?
[00:18:45] <mrcoolbp> Me Too Man
[00:21:58] <NotSanguine|Out> Okay. I'm going away again. Thanks again, mrcoolbp! Ping me if you need me.
[00:22:10] <mrcoolbp> no problem, see ya tomorrow at least
[00:22:15] * mrcoolbp has the day off = )
[01:17:29] <cmn32480> Sorry NotSanguine|Out, I got as far as getting logged in and the kids came a running.
[01:59:35] <NotSanguine|Out> no worries. it all got worked out.

[02:06:52] <janrinok_in_bed> no, it looks fine but you had it unticked
[02:06:56] <NotSanguine|Out> editing while showering is the height of pleasure, cmn32480
[02:07:02] <mrcoolbp> janrinok_in_bed: hope you are taking some time to rest
[02:07:15] <janrinok_in_bed> lying down as we speak sir
[02:07:18] <mrcoolbp> ** anyone have any april first joke ideas for SN ?
[02:07:42] <cmn32480> NotSanguine|out, I shall have to try it. Perhaps my wife in interested
[02:07:47] <NotSanguine|Out> mrcoolbp: a faux bennet haselton post?
[02:08:08] <cmn32480> something on the main page from apk?
[02:08:10] <janrinok_in_bed> Buzz was discussing it last weel but I suspect it has been overtaken by events
[02:08:22] <janrinok_in_bed> week*
[02:08:30] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: that's fucking funny, I have emails from him
[02:08:45] <NotSanguine|Out> APK can be fun
[02:09:06] <NotSanguine|Out> Give a wholehearted endorsement of his hosts file
[02:09:16] <cmn32480> God knows we can go to the odl site and pull something. I just don't think my copy buffer is that big
[02:09:26] <mrcoolbp> NotSanguine|Out: emailing with him was trying
[02:09:48] <NotSanguine|Out> Hey! How about a fake protocol spec for distributing APK's host file?
[02:09:48] <mrcoolbp> someone mentioned posting some onion stories
[02:10:11] <NotSanguine|Out> that was me with the Onion idea, but we should at least try to be original, no?
[02:10:24] <mrcoolbp> NotSanguine|Out: to be honest, I'd prefer not to target individuals
[02:10:37] <NotSanguine|Out> mrcoolbp: a good point
[02:10:41] <mrcoolbp> = )
[02:10:57] <cmn32480> is apk active over here?
[02:11:04] <mrcoolbp> so toss both of those ideas (though they amused me)
[02:11:13] <NotSanguine|Out> I haven't seen him, cmn32480
[02:11:14] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: he was for a bit, I think I pissed him off
[02:11:20] <janrinok_in_bed> good
[02:11:33] <cmn32480> Thank God for small favors
[02:11:36] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I was actually pretty nice to him, he just didn't like what I have to say
[02:11:46] <mrcoolbp> but "you're welcome"
[02:11:54] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: you have performed a great service to this site
[02:11:55] <janrinok_in_bed> you're just misunderstood mrcoolbp
[02:11:56] <NotSanguine|Out> How about we try to find some ridiculous stories and post them as if they're reasonable?
[02:12:28] <mrcoolbp> t'was seridipidous that I came into the customer service role around here, I have an extensive background in hospitality
[02:12:30] <janrinok_in_bed> lol how will people tell?
[02:12:41] <NotSanguine|Out> I don't think APK is really a bad sort, he's just overly sensitive and not very bright
[02:12:49] <cmn32480> change the logo to something about I heart moose wang?
[02:12:50] <mrcoolbp> NotSanguine|Out: I actually like that idea
[02:12:54] <mrcoolbp> fuck with them a bit
[02:12:56] <janrinok_in_bed> .... faint praise
[02:13:07] <NotSanguine|Out> a good point janrinok_in_bed :)
[02:13:53] <mrcoolbp> this discussion might be better continued in our other channel
[02:14:02] <janrinok_in_bed> agreed
[02:14:22] -!- janrinok_in_bed has quit []
[02:14:22] <NotSanguine|Out> Perhaps so, janrinok_in_bed, but I generally don't pull punches. And I'd say the same thing to his monitor or his face
[02:14:50] <mrcoolbp> NotSanguine|Out: It's not about that, it's about professionalism
[02:14:58] <mrcoolbp> we try to have a little here and there
[02:15:15] <mrcoolbp> that means taking it on the chin sometimes

[13:19:46] <janrinok> CoolHand: ping?
[13:20:37] <CoolHand> yo
[13:20:50] <janrinok> hi, I have a question on your latest story
[13:21:06] <CoolHand> ok
[13:21:14] <janrinok> are you sure of you annual figures? They don't seem to agree with the source article figures.
[13:21:56] <janrinok> that's the 'Standby Console Games story
[13:21:58] <CoolHand> well, they weren't mine, they were submitted... I'll check
[13:23:48] <CoolHand> they look like they agree... he said "ConED rates - .35/kwh which is three times as much as what the article says - .12/kwh - so the $142 it says for the PS4 tripled is about the same
[13:24:27] <janrinok> well the source article says for the PS4 that the estimated average annual cost is $10.64
[13:24:57] <janrinok> for the XBox One eac of $13.73
[13:25:19] <janrinok> and for the Wii U, an eac of $14.16
[13:25:23] <CoolHand> ok, the big number is on and at the idle menu
[13:26:46] <janrinok> ah, so 'idle' just means having nothing to do, well I don't use a console, so what does a console 'do' if it is in idle?
[13:27:37] <janrinok> I just can't believe that people leave things switched on when they aren't using them.... Perhaps that is just a european thing.
[13:27:49] <cmn32480> janrinok: they sit there driving up your electric bill
[13:27:51] <CoolHand> happens in my house all the time
[13:28:08] <janrinok> That explains the greenhouse gasses I suppose :)
[13:28:12] <CoolHand> a console these days is basically a computer, so it does the same stuff your computer does when idling
[13:28:32] <janrinok> I switch my computers off, all 8 of them, when they have nothing to do
[13:28:54] <janrinok> no hibernate, no sleep, but OFF
[13:29:33] <chromas> Still uses a trickle for acpi power switch and stuff
[13:29:49] <CoolHand> I think I might make an edit on the bottom of that story making it more clear what that number is, and a note of the standby numbers
[13:29:56] <janrinok> OK, I set your story back to display again, Thanks for that
[13:30:10] <janrinok> OK, make your changes first
[13:33:27] <CoolHand> ok
[13:33:34] <janrinok> thanks CoolHand
[13:45:51] <CoolHand> janrinok: I know todays aren't finished up.. that's why I put the game console power one there.. we don't need too many more for today though..
[13:46:46] <janrinok> np - j/k

[19:16:43] <NotSanguine> I just added another April story. Do we need any more?

[22:29:32] <NotSanguine> I thought I'd removed the "<slash-break> from the "Digital privacy" story. Then I saw a complaint about it in the comments" https://soylentnews.org
[22:29:33] <PrincessKenny> ^ 03SN comment by [02maxwell demon (1608)] (02Score:2): What is this "page 1|2" stuff? I'm sure I've not seen it previously, and I must say I don't like it. Is there any way to get it back to all on one page?
[22:30:17] <NotSanguine> I checked the story again and the <slash-break> had mysteriously re-appeared. I removed it...again and it seems to be gone.
[22:37:50] <mrcoolbp> haha
[22:37:59] <mrcoolbp> awe man, sorry I shoulda checked it for ya
[22:38:18] <NotSanguine> It's okay. check out my reply to the comment. Is that enough?
[22:38:56] <NotSanguine> I don't mind admitting when I'm wrong. It helps me be right more often
