[02:05:32] <CoolHand> welcome cmn32480
[02:05:48] <cmn32480> goood eeevening
[02:06:03] <cmn32480> how's life trating you Coolhand?
[02:06:11] <CoolHand> been watching sammy terry?
[02:06:27] <cmn32480> no... but that line has been one of my favorites since I was a kid
[02:06:34] <CoolHand> :)
[02:07:49] <cmn32480> trying to get some editing done now that the kids are sleeping
[02:09:10] <mrcoolbp> how have you guys been btw?
[02:09:31] <cmn32480> busy like a one arm paperhanger

[02:09:48] <cmn32480> how about you mrcoolbp?
[02:10:01] <takyon> I have some problems with the mozilla story
[02:10:04] <cmn32480> awww... most all us kids are here!
[02:10:10] <CoolHand> hey, it's becoming a party all of a sudden :)
[02:10:35] <mrcoolbp> yay, party
[02:10:45] <takyon> http://soylentnews.org
[02:10:46] <cmn32480> I was looking at it too takyon.
[02:10:49] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I've been pretty decent, working less hours which is good
[02:10:52] <takyon> I made a couple of changes but...
[02:10:57] <mrcoolbp> takyon, we are here for ya buddy
[02:11:00] <mrcoolbp> to the story!
[02:11:01] <cmn32480> The title needs an adjustment
[02:11:10] <takyon> "This mailing list post was just issued a short time ago and is trying to see if the Mozilla community is interested in this plan and whether other web-browsers, etc, would also approve of deprecating insecure HTTP."
[02:11:21] <takyon> so it's less "plans" and more "ponders"
[02:11:29] <CoolHand> that sounds like a good change
[02:11:53] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp... I found your hours. been working them. can I have the pay too?
[02:12:05] <takyon> blammo: "Mozilla Considers Dropping Support for Plaintext HTTP"
[02:12:20] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I make very little in comparison to the software industry where I assume everyone else works
[02:12:31] <CoolHand> yay, that problem is solved
[02:12:41] <mrcoolbp> takyon: how about "phasing out"
[02:13:08] <CoolHand> considers phasing out
[02:13:11] <takyon> phasing out support for OR phasing out plaintext
[02:13:11] <cmn32480> I am a wireless network engineer with a specialization in general IT/Server management
[02:13:37] <takyon> "phasing out support for plaintext" OR "phasing out plaintext"
[02:14:03] <mrcoolbp> how about "Phasing Out Support for HTTP" ?
[02:14:07] <mrcoolbp> that's their goal anyways
[02:14:20] <CoolHand> yeah, what mrcoolbp said
[02:14:30] <takyon> I think the insecure/plaintext qualifier should be there
[02:14:33] <cmn32480> unencrypted HTTP
[02:14:37] <takyon> yeah
[02:14:40] <takyon> which one
[02:14:44] <mrcoolbp> unencrypted
[02:14:46] <takyon> kk
[02:14:48] <mrcoolbp> yay
[02:14:52] <mrcoolbp> teamwork++
[02:14:52] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 6
[02:14:56] <cmn32480> hehehe
[02:15:06] <mrcoolbp> NEXT!
[02:15:06] <cmn32480> on;y when the party accidentally happens
[02:16:36] <takyon> http://soylentnews.org
[02:16:42] <takyon> one more look to check the links I added
[02:16:49] <cmn32480> the last several days, this place has been a relative ghost town
[02:17:09] <mrcoolbp> it happens sometimes, but I check IRC everyday
[02:17:23] <mrcoolbp> I'm not always available to chat or work, but I'm always trying to keep up
[02:17:25] <cmn32480> I try to. Between flights
[02:17:38] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: you should unplug sometimes sir
[02:17:44] <CoolHand> takyon: looks good to me
[02:17:54] <cmn32480> I dind't even turn on my computer after I got home last night
[02:18:20] <mrcoolbp> takyon: why does "writes" link to the google group thing?
[02:18:26] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: good
[02:18:44] <mrcoolbp> takyon: was that part of the submission?
[02:18:51] * mrcoolbp goes to check
[02:19:38] <mrcoolbp> annoying pop-up ads from phoronix
[02:19:43] <takyon> no I added it
[02:19:56] <takyon> legit linkage
[02:20:37] <takyon> err but the quote was from that google doc all along
[02:20:53] <mrcoolbp> yup, that's what I'm thinking skimming through here
[02:21:36] <CoolHand> hmm, didn't notice pop-ups with Noscript... I'm not disabling Noscript just for editing purposes... sorry
[02:21:59] <mrcoolbp> takyon: nope, not in the google doc
[02:23:10] <mrcoolbp> takyon: it's in the google groups link, but the link automatically opens the last entry, not the first (where the quote is)
[02:23:20] <mrcoolbp> (meaning you have the link correct)
[02:23:23] cmn32480 is now known as cmn32480|brb
[02:23:30] <mrcoolbp> we might want to indicate this
[02:23:38] <mrcoolbp> it's an odd source to use a google groups
[02:23:41] <takyon> look just fix it my browser is fucked
[02:23:45] <mrcoolbp> hah
[02:24:02] <mrcoolbp> CoolHand: take a look, I'll brb
[02:24:14] <takyon> ok I clicked the google groups link
[02:24:17] <takyon> and I see the quoted text right there
[02:24:35] <mrcoolbp> CoolHand: no don't disable Noscript, I would never ask you to do that
[02:24:48] <mrcoolbp> it's one of the reasons I don't run it on this box, so I can see stuff like that
[02:25:21] <takyon> mrcoolbp: when I open the google groups link the first post contains the quoted text
[02:25:28] <takyon> not seeing the problem
[02:27:06] <CoolHand> I dunno, but I like the link to the phoronix article better personally..it's cleaner and easier to find (even though not the original source)
[02:27:51] <takyon> phoronix article is the very first link
[02:30:20] <CoolHand> true.. do we really need the link on "writes" when there is the google link later and the phoronoix link first?
[02:30:31] <CoolHand> seems it just confuses the issue
[02:30:42] <mrcoolbp> ^
[02:30:55] <mrcoolbp> that's how I feel, link is already in phoronix article
[02:31:01] <takyon> that is literally where barney wrote it
[02:31:04] <mrcoolbp> true
[02:31:21] <mrcoolbp> but linking to a google groups post is odd in this format (without indicating as such)
[02:31:35] <mrcoolbp> my point is if we are going to link to it, we should mention that we are doing so
[02:31:38] <takyon> well you've seen my submissions and edits, you know I like to throw in a million links. change it if you want
[02:31:39] <mrcoolbp> it's confusing otherwise
[02:31:45] <mrcoolbp> takyon: copy that
[02:32:03] <mrcoolbp> takyon: lots of links are not bad, but my point is it was unexpected for CoolHand and I
[02:32:12] <mrcoolbp> CoolHand: how do you recommend we proceed?
[02:32:18] <takyon> going to take a look at this whistleblower malware story
[02:32:56] <cmn32480|brb> I am workign the Iron curtain perpheral
[02:33:15] <CoolHand> since it's my name on the article, I think I'll just remove that link...
[02:33:51] <mrcoolbp> cool
[02:37:52] <takyon> well that was an ez edit
[02:38:00] <takyon> got to love the surveillance stick
[02:39:57] <takyon> about that AnonTechie tax story
[02:40:17] <takyon> does the gewg story at the top of the queue cover that? could be another reason to delete that
[02:40:35] <takyon> "that" being corporate tax dodging
[02:41:17] cmn32480|brb is now known as cmn32480
[02:41:37] <mrcoolbp> takyon: which AnonTechie story?
[02:42:07] <mrcoolbp> oh wait
[02:42:09] <takyon> http://soylentnews.org
[02:42:10] <clippit> ^ 03SN article:  15 Companies That Paid Zero Income Tax Last Year (Despite $23 Billion In Profits). 04(30 comments)
[02:42:20] <mrcoolbp> yeah I misunderstood, sec
[02:42:28] <cmn32480> i just posted the IRon Curtain Perpherals story
[02:43:09] <mrcoolbp> takyon: I'm seeing similarities already
[02:43:16] <cmn32480> any chance we can get the devs to make the story time line on the right hadn side fo the editing view show the entire future queue?
[02:43:42] <takyon> so what were some of the peripherals?
[02:43:44] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: yeah that should aready be a thing
[02:43:53] <cmn32480> pretty neat actually
[02:43:56] <cmn32480> mice
[02:43:56] <mrcoolbp> takyon: I'm looking actually
[02:43:58] <cmn32480> printers
[02:44:26] <cmn32480> all kinds of stuff that if they couldn't buy it with the unit, they basially made their own
[02:44:43] <takyon> USSRB
[02:44:48] <cmn32480> apparently the market lasted until a fair bit past the fall of the Berlin wall
[02:45:06] <mrcoolbp> takyon: gewg submitted first....
[02:45:17] <CoolHand> I'm getting ready to hit the sack.. if you guys need to do anything with any story I've posted to make them better (or remove them), feel free.. good night guys
[02:45:31] <mrcoolbp> guys, this is another reminder we should work from the top of the submissions queue whenever possible
[02:45:46] <mrcoolbp> CoolHand: have a goodnight~!
[02:46:02] <takyon> you know how it is. a bit of gewg anti-capitalist flamebait tends to linger in the queue
[02:46:08] <mrcoolbp> tru
[02:46:23] <cmn32480> night Coolhand
[02:46:26] <takyon> night
[02:46:39] <takyon> it's that middle ground where you think about deleting it but you're not sure
[02:46:49] <mrcoolbp> takyon: maybe we should just reject gewg? I would have combined them if we had thought of it beforehand but seems linka late for that now
[02:46:51] <cmn32480> will SN PBC be providing me stilts to see the top of the queue mrcoolbp?
[02:47:06] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: no
[02:47:12] <cmn32480> DAMNIT
[02:47:22] <mrcoolbp> yeah sorry
[02:47:47] * cmn32480 kicks a stone in sadness
[02:47:57] <cmn32480> I just wanna be tall.... <sniff>
[02:48:03] * mrcoolbp hands cmn32480 a flower
[02:48:21] * cmn32480 will not cuddle with mrcoolbp
[02:48:34] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: weigh in on the above questoin about what to do with gewg's submission?
[02:48:55] <cmn32480> gimme a sec to read it
[02:49:06] <takyon> I'll delete it, but I'm going to read the links first
[02:49:22] <mrcoolbp> could update current story...
[02:49:27] <mrcoolbp> if links are good that is
[02:49:34] <cmn32480> I thoguht I put a note on that one a few days ago about possibly deleting due to it being complete flaimbait
[02:49:58] <mrcoolbp> someone put it "dupe of anontechie story?"
[02:50:04] <takyon> i did
[02:50:12] <takyon> and yeah this is the same list of 15 in both stories
[02:50:23] <cmn32480> though that could have been a different one.... the days all blend together like a good LIT
[02:50:31] <takyon> so the proper procedure would have been to merge if it had been noticed
[02:50:35] <mrcoolbp> takyon: if AnonTechie was a better write-up, just delete gewg
[02:50:45] <mrcoolbp> takyon: unless Anon's was better
[02:50:46] <takyon> but since gewg posts as anon, he doesn't have a profile tracking his accept/reject ratio anyway
[02:51:02] <cmn32480> in this instance, there is no user karma to consider
[02:51:07] <mrcoolbp> takyon: not important, the important thing is the quality right?
[02:51:26] <mrcoolbp> we post whats good, even if ethanol wrote it = )
[02:51:35] <cmn32480> which happend last week.
[02:51:42] <cmn32480> I almost fell out of my chair
[02:52:04] <takyon> quality would have been not posting the raw urls the first time around
[02:52:26] <takyon> ethanol-fueled ain't even wrong
[02:53:24] <mrcoolbp> eth is pretty smart, he's just a admitted troll half the time
[02:53:35] <takyon> ok gewg cleaned out
[02:53:40] <cmn32480> he seems like a nice guy on IRC
[02:54:00] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: have you seen him when hes drunK? he's completely differenft
[02:54:13] <cmn32480> yes he is mrcoolbp
[02:54:20] <takyon> you 'aven't even seen his final form
[02:54:22] <cmn32480> I prefer sober
[02:54:25] <mrcoolbp> I've kicked him multiple time
[02:54:26] <mrcoolbp> s
[02:54:44] <takyon> I just notice when he starts 420blazing it and logging in and out a lot
[02:54:46] <mrcoolbp> sometimes he warns me I'll have to kick him later, makes it that much easier = )
[02:54:53] <mrcoolbp> takyon: heh
[02:55:08] <takyon> speaking of, I wanted to run a story every hour on the :20 minute mark on April 20, how do you guys feel about that
[02:55:22] <mrcoolbp> I have no qualms
[02:55:31] <cmn32480> I'm ok w/ it
[02:55:39] <takyon> not every hour though, just hitting most of the time zones that matter
[02:55:44] <cmn32480> speaking of which. I am gonna be out of pocket all next week
[02:55:53] <mrcoolbp> ?
[02:56:02] <cmn32480> starting Sunday
[02:56:09] <CoolHand> takyon: will they all be pot stories??? (sorry, not asleep yet, watching pacers game - in OT - about double OT)
[02:56:12] <CoolHand> :)
[02:56:17] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: you are paying your own way?
[02:56:21] * mrcoolbp is confused
[02:56:23] <takyon> not necessarily
[02:56:38] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp - out of pocket = not in fornt of a computer
[02:56:44] <mrcoolbp> ah
[02:57:00] <cmn32480> as n "I'll be working out of pocket on my smart phone all week"
[02:57:04] <mrcoolbp> ah
[02:57:06] <CoolHand> just kidding that is the <i>normal</i> 4/20 type thing
[02:57:26] <cmn32480> make sense mrcoolbp?
[02:57:31] <mrcoolbp> now it does yeah
[02:57:39] <takyon> I don't think we will have enough time to get a bunch of pot stories in unless they start getting submitted in the days before. although I could merge like 5+ stories to make a mega post
[02:58:06] <CoolHand> at 16:20 hehe
[02:58:26] <mrcoolbp> takyon: you still working on whistleblower story?
[02:58:35] <takyon> what is that, eastern
[02:58:43] <takyon> the work took 2 minutes
[02:58:52] <takyon> just made an unordered list and changed some grammar
[02:59:04] <cmn32480> I leave Sunday (4/19) afternoon and get back on Saturday (4/25)
[02:59:09] <mrcoolbp> takyon: it's undisplayed
[02:59:20] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: no worries man
[02:59:30] <takyon> someone should give it a second look over anyway
[02:59:42] <takyon> I notice a bunch of stories have made it to front page with only one editor
[02:59:42] <cmn32480> just a heads up. I'll be working all day, then getting back to the hotel to do my day job at night
[02:59:45] <mrcoolbp> takyon: are you still un-displaying your stories?
[02:59:59] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: appreciate the heads up
[03:00:27] <cmn32480> takyon - it happens sometimes.
[03:00:50] <mrcoolbp> takyon: we try to avoid it, but it does happen yes
[03:00:51] <takyon> mrcoolbp: I undisplay maybe 10-15% of stories
[03:00:59] <mrcoolbp> takyon: cool, I respect that
[03:01:19] <takyon> or stories with deep issues I don't feel I've resolved
[03:01:51] <mrcoolbp> paulej72, TheMightyBuzzard: can we get the stories queue that appears on the righthand side of the "Story Editor" to show the full queue? (it doesn't show stories that haven't been released yet for some reason)
[03:02:14] <mrcoolbp> takyon: yeah, no harm in that, a second editor can always check and re-arrange if necessary
[03:02:28] <mrcoolbp> (re-arrange timing)
[03:02:38] <mrcoolbp> oh TMB isn't in here
[03:03:16] <takyon> what queue thing are you talking about, got a link?
[03:03:35] <mrcoolbp> takyon: edit any story, look on right
[03:04:00] <cmn32480> I clicked the rwrong channel....
[03:04:21] <takyon> oh I completely ignore that thing
[03:04:52] <cmn32480> It woudl be great if it showed the complete future queue
[03:04:56] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: heh
[03:04:56] <takyon> it seems to be displaying unreleased stories for me though
[03:05:05] <cmn32480> makes setting the times easier
[03:05:07] <mrcoolbp> I thought it didn't display some things
[03:05:09] <takyon> 1sec
[03:05:13] * mrcoolbp is confused again
[03:05:22] <takyon> http://puu.sh
[03:05:40] <takyon> those two are at the top are the latest and both unreleased
[03:05:45] <mrcoolbp> hmm
[03:05:50] <cmn32480> it doesn't always happen that way
[03:06:24] <takyon> maybe it's a delay?
[03:06:26] <cmn32480> When I first posted the iron curtain story, it was 3 or 4 stories behind, even after a posting adn going back in to edit the time
[03:06:28] <mrcoolbp> takyon: If I'm editing a story that HASN'T gone out yet they all display
[03:06:45] <mrcoolbp> if I'm editing a story that HAS gone out, it only shows stories that have gone out
[03:07:14] * mrcoolbp uses tabs with story queue and editor, but that shouldn't be necessary given this "feature"
[03:07:24] <takyon> if we're talking delays, sometimes when I edit a story the change isn't reflected for a few minutes, even after several refreshes
[03:07:34] <takyon> ^ completely different thing
[03:07:36] <mrcoolbp> takyon: that's caching
[03:07:45] * cmn32480 thinks mrcoolbp might be significantly smarter than himself
[03:07:54] * mrcoolbp thinks we still use varnish
[03:08:12] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I try only to be smarter then myself = )
[03:08:36] <cmn32480> I keep multiple tabs open... just to the wrong things apparently mrcoolbp
[03:08:47] <takyon> a black hole
[03:10:05] <cmn32480> aye carumba.... the universe expansion story is a holy wall of text.
[03:10:18] <mrcoolbp> yeah, that's Bytram/martyb for ya
[03:10:22] <takyon> yeah I was confused by that image talk too
[03:10:24] <mrcoolbp> now THAT guy is smart
[03:10:29] <cmn32480> are we allowed to use the IMG tags?
[03:10:33] <takyon> can we actually have images and videos attached using that "media" textarea?
[03:10:40] <mrcoolbp> takyon: I think we can attach an img, but as a convention we DON'T do that
[03:10:50] <mrcoolbp> takyon: we don't have solid reasoning on why
[03:10:52] <cmn32480> it was first used on 4/1
[03:10:56] <mrcoolbp> takyon: we just don't really do it
[03:11:02] <takyon> oh right
[03:11:07] <takyon> that horrifying image
[03:11:16] <mrcoolbp> takyon: in this case, can we just link to the raw img url?
[03:11:30] <takyon> sure
[03:11:31] <cmn32480> faster page loads, linking to an img on another site is poor etiquette...
[03:11:36] <mrcoolbp> takyon: we should have an Editorial meeting before we start doing that
[03:11:47] <mrcoolbp> cnb32480: that's likely part of it
[03:11:53] <takyon> some images are more betterer than others
[03:11:54] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: that's likely part of it
[03:12:00] <takyon> there may be a copyright consideration too
[03:12:05] <mrcoolbp> all good points
[03:12:26] <cmn32480> if yo give credit the copyright shouldn't be an issue. it is citing someone else's work
[03:13:07] <takyon> maybe I can set up some tests on dev, link to some wikimedia images, add captions, etc.
[03:13:10] <takyon> see how it looks
[03:13:36] <mrcoolbp> takyon: again, the convention is to not do it. Aside from 4/1/15, we have only done it one other time
[03:13:39] <cmn32480> for the granny story, it was a raw IMG link that TMB showed me how to do
[03:14:04] <cmn32480> what was the other time mrcoolbp?
[03:14:08] <cmn32480> I musta missed it
[03:14:17] <takyon> oh so the image data was actually embedded in the page?
[03:14:17] <mrcoolbp> oh interesting, it's broken now:

[03:14:42] <mrcoolbp> takyon: yes, we selfhosted one, using the slash features that we told you in training are tricky to use
[03:15:09] <takyon> I don't mean to suggest that we throw the image in to this universe expansion story
[03:15:26] <cmn32480> bytram's notes say he wants one
[03:16:50] * mrcoolbp is kinda AFK
[03:17:08] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp musta tipped his chair over....
[03:18:20] <mrcoolbp> nah facetime with some awesome friends
[03:18:32] mrcoolbp is now known as mrcool|kindaAFK
[03:18:44] <cmn32480> sorry... I don't Apple...
[03:20:46] <cmn32480> takyon - I'm editing bytram's expanding universe
[03:20:57] <takyon> and I praise you for tackling that textwall
[03:21:01] <cmn32480> adn the story bar on the right doesn't show the top 2 stories in the queue
[03:21:12] <cmn32480> one is undispayed
[03:21:22] <cmn32480> the other has only a single editor.
[03:21:47] <takyon> wait... there is no story bar on submission preview?
[03:22:01] <cmn32480> the bar is there
[03:22:07] <cmn32480> but it is 2 stories short
[03:22:07] <takyon> oh I have to hit preview first
[03:22:13] <cmn32480> yes
[03:22:21] <takyon> yup I see that
[03:22:40] <takyon> so do we know the exact circumstance this happens? if so I'll file the bug
[03:22:50] <cmn32480> you getting the same thing? missing the lawyer adn the peripherals?
[03:23:23] <cmn32480> can you set the lawyer story to display?
[03:23:32] <takyon> yes and yes
[03:23:36] <cmn32480> I'll refresh adn see what happens t the story admin
[03:24:00] <takyon> done
[03:24:32] <cmn32480> not sure wht the refresh rate on the cache for that is
[03:24:40] <takyon> glacial
[03:24:45] <cmn32480> that quick?
[03:24:52] <takyon> kekeke
[03:25:06] <cmn32480> still no change
[03:25:24] <cmn32480> I'm going to approve your story and see what changes
[03:25:25] <takyon> is it only on unsaved stories? aka not on stories that have moved out of the submissions list?
[03:25:53] <takyon> the screenshot I took earlier was from a story that was already out of the submission list
[03:26:04] <takyon> as opposed to the universe expansion story
[03:26:26] <takyon> could be important to put in the bug report if true
[03:26:39] <cmn32480> if you view it from a story already in the main page queue, it still doesn't show everythgin
[03:27:08] <cmn32480> I"m editing the Mozilla story, and it shows the lawyer, not the peripheral
[03:27:09] <takyon> oh shit
[03:27:12] <takyon> look at this
[03:27:18] <takyon> https://soylentnews.org
[03:27:19] <clippit> ^ 03- SoylentNews User ( https://soylentnews.org )
[03:27:23] <takyon> it's limited by the timestamp
[03:27:46] <takyon> so the further back you go, the older the stories that will be displayed
[03:28:20] <takyon> that's why looking at the iron curtain story shows the newest stuff
[03:28:22] <cmn32480> I think you hit it
[03:28:33] <cmn32480> 3 stories forward in the queue is all it shows
[03:28:49] <cmn32480> time stamp is unrelated
[03:29:17] <cmn32480> Mozilla is the 4th story back in the admin pane
[03:29:32] <takyon> ok I'll make the bug report and link that in chillax
[03:29:59] <takyon> actually is this a bug or a feature
[03:30:17] <cmn32480> in my eyes, a bug. for somebody it was a feature
[03:30:26] <takyon> alright then
[03:30:43] <cmn32480> we'll call it a "requested enhancement"
[03:35:51] <takyon> how do I tag a bug in github
[03:35:59] <takyon> do I have to submit it first?
[03:36:17] <cmn32480> I think so, but I am no expert. I can't say I have ever submitted one
[03:39:02] <takyon> we seem to have multiple names for all this stuff. gets a bit confusing
[03:39:15] <cmn32480> good catch on figuring out the way that pane works

[03:46:27] <takyon> i'll fix it for you
[03:46:47] <cmn32480> I see what you are saying.
[03:47:18] <takyon> fixed
[03:47:20] <cmn32480> we pull that link altogehter
[03:47:34] <cmn32480> sorry I'm fading
[03:47:41] <cmn32480> not sure how I missed that
[03:47:59] <takyon> oh god it's a link to two math symbols
[03:48:08] <takyon> where's latex or mathml when you need

[03:48:29] <cmn32480> hehehe
[03:48:53] <cmn32480> I've had enough fun for one day.
[03:49:03] <cmn32480> I gotta get some rest my new guy starts tomorrow
[03:49:08] <takyon> good work on including the phrase "standard candle", whoever that was
[03:49:11] * cmn32480 dances a little in his chair
[03:49:31] <cmn32480> from what I read, it is basically a measurement of light
[03:50:05] <cmn32480> but I will be quite honest, that article is a lot beyond my understanding
[03:50:38] <takyon> it's something that is of a uniform brightness. that way if you can safely assume that it is emitting the same amount of light in two different places, you can use it measure distances across the universe
[03:50:47] <cmn32480> exactly
[03:50:58] <takyon> that's why the type 1a supernova is great for astronomy
[03:51:08] <cmn32480> oh... I get it
[03:51:29] <cmn32480> I see said the blind man
[03:51:33] <takyon> get some sleep
[03:51:36] <cmn32480> yeah
[03:51:40] <cmn32480> past my bed time
[03:51:46] <cmn32480> thanks for the help takyon
[03:51:49] <cmn32480> it is appreciated

[12:03:54] <takyon> we did already have a comprehensive roundup but maybe something more interesting and magical will come out... especially from intel
[12:04:09] <CoolHand> yeah, that'd be cool
[12:21:39] <CoolHand> takyon: how about "Dark Matter: Mapping and Musing"
[12:21:48] <takyon> or Massin
[12:22:08] <takyon> I need a new laptop, the 'g' key barely works
[12:22:55] <takyon> it's up to you. I considered "Shining Light on Dark Matter" but then I was like meh and put that as the first sentence instead
[12:24:47] <CoolHand> takyon: "Dark Matter: Mapping, Massing, and Musing"
[12:25:14] <CoolHand> You just taught me a new word.. I didn't know "massing."
[12:26:01] <takyon> most words are words
[12:26:06] <takyon> there's also amassing
