[00:27:14] <CoolHand> if anyone wants to pop some stories in the Q, I'm good with it (I've got the last 5 - I hate to have too many in a row - feel like I'm taking all thefun)
[00:34:21] <Bytram> mrcoolbp: sleep well!
[00:34:27] <mrcoolbp> ?
[00:34:48] * Bytram just noticed that was from a comment you posted in a scrolled back paert of my display window
[00:35:05] <mrcoolbp> hah
[00:35:11] <mrcoolbp> welcome to having a bouncer
[00:35:24] <Bytram> trygain, I had this window scrolled back and the last line had you saying 'Good night"; so I replied to that, then noticed by oops.
[00:35:32] <Bytram> nod nod -- is much nice

[14:32:48] <cmn32480> I jsut put an appeal for stories in the queue. Up to whomever if we want to run it, but I think it might be a good idea
[14:33:10] <cmn32480> janrinok^ mrcoolbp^
[14:40:10] <janrinok> cmn32480: thx - we'll let it wait a while longer, the nagger tells people that there is only 1 story left so we will keep our fingers crossed.
[14:43:38] <cmn32480> I figured I'd toss it in, since I had 3 minutes to get coffee janrinok
[14:44:18] <janrinok> np - thx anyway. CoolHand and I had a discussion about it a while back, and we agreed to wait a little. We have some time in hand.
[14:46:19] <cmn32480> yeah.. I left my PC on and logged in adn I came to the office with a BSOD this morning
[14:46:51] <cmn32480> no problem... just a little antsy, I suppose
[14:46:58] <janrinok> BSOD doesn't sound good - it shouldn't do that just by being left on
[14:47:41] <cmn32480> it was acting weird before I went home. but i couldn't shut down due to a print job that was running. so I rolled the dice
[14:47:51] <cmn32480> came up snake eyes!

[15:10:20] <takyon> please remove the "has" in "Chancellor Angela Merkel has defended"

[15:15:33] <dogpipe> ^ 03AnandTech Call for Writers: 2015
[15:18:13] <janrinok> takyon: enjoyed that story earlier re plants that like kimberlite
[15:19:03] <takyon> i glanced at the comments and it seemed to get a lot of hate
[15:19:20] <takyon> I ran it at that point because there was nothing in the queue
[15:19:47] <takyon> I do like the idea of a plant betraying and undermining its symbiotic relationship with a rock
[15:20:10] <takyon> err, parasitic, not symbiotic
[15:20:35] <janrinok> I don't think the comments are that negative - we have had far worse :)
[15:21:21] <janrinok> if they want to argue semantics when the story itself is understandable, they should volunteer to be editors
[15:23:45] <takyon> just ditch soylent and get paid to write for AnandTech
[15:25:22] <takyon> jk, it's a lot easier to write soylent summaries
[15:25:30] <takyon> I might send something in though
[15:26:58] <cmn32480> janrinok is right, pretty neat story. and the comments are arguing over the placement of a single word (which is placed correctly based on my reading of the meaning)
[15:28:07] <janrinok> nothing in there that I am particularly knowledgeable about so I don't suppose Anandtech would be interested - and I'm enjoying my early retirement too much to rejoin the rat race
[15:30:22] <takyon> i dunno if sending in stories is much of a rat race. seeing as they don't require you to leave your home
[15:31:57] <janrinok> If they are paying then they will want, at some point, to start to direct your workload. Maybe not today.
[15:34:25] <janrinok> they want you to join their 'team' - I'm fairly sure that means that they have some idea of what they expect your output to be - or at least that is my reading of it.
[15:36:07] <janrinok> going to reboot to install new kernel

[15:38:18] <janrinok> ...and back again
[15:38:31] <takyon> encrypted an additional link in the mozilla story. the iab.net one
[15:38:52] <takyon> don't we have kernel updates without rebooting now/soon
[15:39:17] <janrinok> takyon: we are moving that story back as new ones come in. It is mostly a dupe of one that we published a week or two back
[15:39:35] <janrinok> ...but the queue was running low
[15:40:06] <takyon> there's a lot of material in it for something that could be replaced by a *certain* Mozilla move to deprecate HTTP
[15:40:24] <takyon> I don't really see them going through with it though?
[15:41:43] <janrinok> Oh, it will happen eventually. But it is all waving hands at the moment. 'at some point in the future', 'combined with the change to IP6' etc. It's not going to happen in the near term, otherwise they will have many sites that they cannot access.
[15:43:13] <takyon> i'm holding out for IPV8 personally. The Internet of Aliens is going to tax IPv6 resources
[15:43:33] <janrinok> rofl
[15:43:54] <takyon> 8192-bit addresses should be enough for anyone
[15:44:02] <janrinok> got to go cook our evening meal - will be back on in an hour or two

[18:49:41] <takyon> oy janrinok
[18:49:55] <takyon> I just merged the two France surveillance stories together
[18:50:05] <takyon> CTRL+C whatever you have in there
[18:50:28] <takyon> didn't see you, just went and merged like Carly
[18:50:58] <takyon> ping janrinok
[18:51:47] <takyon> forgot about forward slashes there
[19:06:20] <janrinok> I'm not in the document. I closed it a while ago but the page does not indicate that until I next open a new story
[19:07:11] <takyon> phew
[19:07:15] <takyon> crisis averted
