[00:01:13] <mrcoolbp> yesw
[00:01:17] <mrcoolbp> paulej72 ^
[00:01:28] <takyon> ok just making sure I'm not crazy
[00:01:35] <takyon> it's on chrome for me
[00:01:38] <mrcoolbp> it’s like the “hit area” for that textbox is just above the box (halfway through it)
[00:01:41] <mrcoolbp> me too, chrome
[00:01:45] <mrcoolbp> (on windows)
[00:01:54] <takyon> same
[00:02:31] <mrcoolbp> some times it just seems like the “hit area” is moved up a little, about .5 textbox heights, other times it’s harder to hit
[00:02:57] <takyon> it's pretty inconsistent. I think it might only appear when first saving the submission, because now I'm editing and it clicks just fine
[00:03:11] <mrcoolbp> hmm
[00:03:16] <mrcoolbp> that’s interesting
[00:03:27] <takyon> however I can click the time fine, but not the date
[00:03:58] <takyon> whatever it is, it's a load of fail. I'm going to inspect the element to look for clues
[00:04:39] <mrcoolbp> let us know if you find any, right now I’m hesitant to log any bugs in “slashcode” repo, as the idea is to get on “rehash” next
[00:05:31] <takyon> not logging bugs = forgetting bugs
[00:06:56] <takyon> I think an invisible "label" element is covering up the input box
[00:07:29] <takyon> I inspected the element at a point where I couldn't click and brought up <label class="checkbox">
[00:08:35] <mrcoolbp> https://github.com
[00:08:36] <takyon> It's the one containing the Link Story to Existing Poll link
[00:08:37] <clippit> ^ 03Sign in · GitHub ( https://github.com )
[00:09:17] <takyon> the Attach File label seems to be covering up Link Story to Existing Poll link
[00:09:21] <takyon> must be some crazy line height issue
[00:10:05] <takyon> I think "padding-top:16 px" is the culprit
[00:13:59] <mrcoolbp> that sounds high
[00:14:12] <mrcoolbp> takyon: do you have a copy of the VM?
[00:14:36] <takyon> uh no
[00:14:41] <takyon> I'm almost done writing the bug
[00:14:45] <mrcoolbp> k
[00:16:40] <mrcoolbp> takyon: i gotta run off (again) = (
[00:16:55] <takyon> bye
[00:18:16] <mrcoolbp> there’s a bunch of stories in the hopper you could check if you had time, but I’ll talk to you soon
[00:18:26] <mrcoolbp> thanks tak

[00:22:16] <mrcoolbp> takyon: nice
[00:52:16] <takyon> had to do a little walk back on LTO tapes article
[00:52:31] <takyon> the capacity milestones are fine, but $0.008/GB is for compressed tapes
[01:14:43] <cmn32480> how goes it takyon?
[01:15:45] <takyon> got btfo by LTO marketers
[01:15:53] <takyon> prepped a couple of submissions
[01:16:07] <takyon> found that annoying CSS bug
[01:19:56] <cmn32480> busy day!
[01:20:56] <cmn32480> I know the feeling. I edited a bunch, put together a customer's wireless network, and got interrupted by my kids every 5 seconds :-)
[01:41:58] <takyon> I find it funny we have a story about "elementary OS" but not Linux 4.0 yet
[01:42:27] <cmn32480> we are limited by what gets submitted
[01:43:08] <cmn32480> due to us all wanting to have lives, we can't be digging up the stories, and editing, and commenting
[01:47:17] <cmn32480> I've had enough fun for one day. Keep fighting the good fight.
[01:47:32] <cmn32480> g'night all!

[12:33:22] <takyon> I think the NSA "front door" story may have been deleted in error
[12:34:07] <takyon> we had a story about it before, but the new story is circa Apr 10

[12:49:07] <takyon> so yeah, if you can find it and undelete it, we should publish it

[16:16:58] <takyon> can a submission be merged with a story so the submitter gets credit?
[16:17:01] <takyon> eg.
[16:17:16] <takyon> this: https://soylentnews.org
[16:17:17] <clippit> ^ 03SN Submission by Phoenix666: NSA Wants "Front Door" to Your Data Via Split Keys
[16:17:27] <takyon> into this: https://soylentnews.org
[16:18:36] <takyon> I added all of that stuff into the extended copy myself
[16:18:53] <takyon> it could be split off into its own story, whatever
[16:19:53] <takyon> I did that because we deleted a submission of the same "front door" thing earlier, even though it's actually "new" AFAICT
[16:20:36] <takyon> summon janrinok
[16:28:31] <takyon> nvm i'm just going to make it 2 stories
[16:28:45] <takyon> nsa all day
[16:50:22] <takyon> I've gotten individual links to 4 of 7 IBM Watson recipes listed here: http://soylentnews.org
[17:19:50] <janrinok> takyon - I'm here, better late than never?
[17:21:42] <janrinok> takyon: ^^
[17:25:37] <takyon> I went solo
[17:25:47] <janrinok> do you want me to release it?
[17:27:33] <takyon> sure
[17:27:41] <takyon> I was too scared to release the kraken
[17:27:52] <janrinok> np - I'll do it
[17:28:05] <janrinok> good story
[17:32:33] <CoolHand> I think I already 2nd edited the watson one if that's what you're talking about
[17:32:59] <janrinok> no, a different story. How's things with you CH?
[17:33:29] <CoolHand> good, made it back in one piece with no breakdowns... had fun too, to boot :) just really busy now trying to catch up
[17:33:43] <janrinok> there is always a price to pay...
[17:34:06] <CoolHand> rode this again... https://www.google.com
[17:34:07] <clippit> ^ 03tail of the dragon - Google Search
[17:34:34] <janrinok> bet that was fun
[17:35:25] <CoolHand> sure was..

[17:37:12] <janrinok> nice bike too. How old is your lad?
[17:37:17] <CoolHand> 14
[17:37:25] <janrinok> did he enjoy it too?
[17:37:54] <CoolHand> he was bored.. I mentioned to him that if I messed up at all in those 318 curves, then we could pretty much instantly die... he was like "meh..." --teenagers...
[17:38:24] <janrinok> lol - all your street cred gone!
[17:38:40] <janrinok> but it shows he trusts you
[17:39:09] <CoolHand> true :)

[18:33:10] <paulej72> editors, I am testing a new layout of the edit story page. It is live on dev. if you approve, I can add it to production.
[18:36:16] <paulej72> from the docs: The fixquotes checkbox is for fixing curly quotes if you've pasted text that includes them. The autonode checkbox is for automatically creating glossary-style links to http://everything2.com but it doesn't seem to work anymore. The fastforward checkbox moves a story to the first position on the page (by changing its date).
[18:36:16] <clippit> ^ 03Everything2
[19:50:52] <CoolHand> paulej72: seems nice to me... spellcheck and fixquotes features will be nice, I think, as will fastforward (occasionally). Any plans to fix autonode? if not, why not remove it?
[20:19:17] -!- janrinok has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
[20:33:15] <paulej72> autonode removed, but I think fixquotes is broken too.
[20:40:56] <mrcoolbp> what is autonode?
[20:41:16] <mrcoolbp> oh and hi janrinok/CooHand/takyon
[21:32:29] <paulej72> mrcoolbp: autonode is crap and is being killed off
[21:32:37] <mrcoolbp> cool
[21:35:18] <chromas> not gonna fork everything2? :D
