[01:02:29] <CoolHand> takyon: ping
[01:02:35] <takyon> ye
[01:02:52] <CoolHand> what's up with that story that is on non-display?
[01:03:22] <takyon> it needs a second look
[01:03:41] <takyon> i just pushed it back once more
[01:06:11] <takyon> maybe you should switch my 10 core with the seymour story
[01:06:19] <takyon> as for whether it should run, it's certainly interesting
[01:06:40] <takyon> first heard it mentioned on charlie rose last night, I think it is being widely denied
[01:07:45] <takyon> gewg's submission is kinda bad. it took the first paragraph from Vox, when it was the only paragraph not harshly criticizing the story
[01:07:54] <takyon> so I added paragraph #2
[01:08:03] <takyon> the other block is a little big
[01:08:18] <takyon> then I threw in the intercept link that I noticed this morning
[01:09:18] <takyon> tl;dr, they say the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound was fake, Pakistani intelligence knew about bin Laden, gave him up, he was not buried at sea but thrown out of a helicopter in pieces, and more
[01:09:55] <CoolHand> u can switch the stories if u want
[01:10:14] <takyon> do you have an opinion on it yet?
[01:10:50] <CoolHand> yeah, I dunno.. I'd be kind of leery about running it.. I was when I saw the title.. but I haven't really read it yet
[01:11:32] <takyon> and that's why I'm keeping it off display for now. want to make sure I get it right
[01:18:27] <CoolHand> maybe if the title was soemthing like "Seymour Hersh's Murder of bin Laden Conspiracy Theory" might make me feel better about it...
[01:18:30] <CoolHand> I dunno
[01:21:04] <takyon> the title is an easier fix than the content
[01:21:09] <takyon> the second blockquote is really long
[01:21:31] <CoolHand> it is
[01:22:00] <takyon> if you want I'd say just identify what to delete from that blockquote, and put in a more neutral title
[01:22:13] <takyon> or do you want me to own this
[01:22:41] <CoolHand> well, I think you're the best at this sort of thing that we have honestly...
[01:22:56] <CoolHand> so, I'd let u have at it.. :)
[01:23:40] <takyon> lifted title straight from London Review of books. combining paragraph
[01:24:27] <takyon> and another combo
[01:25:00] <takyon> so all I'
[01:25:18] <takyon> ve done here is kill some line breaks and change the title. give it a couple minutes to update and have a look
[01:25:54] <takyon> the next thing to pare down would be the information about the sources
[01:26:12] <takyon> like this part: Hersh also uses two other US sources, who had access to corroborating information, have been longtime consultants to the Special Operations Command, and also had information "from inside Pakistan about widespread dismay among the senior ISI and military leadership--echoed later by Durrani--over Obama's decision to go public immediately with news of bin Laden's death."
[01:27:34] <takyon> in fact I could probably just kill off that entire paragraph
[01:27:56] <CoolHand> go ahead.. then I'll look after refressh..
[01:30:03] <takyon> done
[01:30:09] <CoolHand> ok
[01:31:08] <takyon> note that everything after Vox is in the extended copy
[01:31:36] <takyon> also I am in the no to "[more after the break]" crowd
[01:31:48] <takyon> since our homepage indicates that there are more words in the story
[01:33:19] <CoolHand> ok..
[01:33:29] <CoolHand> I think it looks pretty good now...
[01:36:45] <takyon> make your mark
[01:38:26] <CoolHand> done.. pushed it back a bitlll cmn snuck another in there on us..
[01:38:31] <CoolHand> bit
[01:46:38] -!- cmn32480 [cmn32480!~cmn32480@Soylent/Staff/Editor/cmn32480] has joined #editorial
[01:46:38] -!- mode/#editorial [+v cmn32480] by SkyNet
[01:50:36] <CoolHand> cmn32480: can we push the afghan article later in the day and stick something else there? that's 2 afghan/pakistand articles in a row, and 3 political type ones with no tech articles
[01:50:49] <cmn32480> surely
[01:51:20] <cmn32480> and i am currently editing the on on the NSA
[01:51:53] <cmn32480> which is probably more political than tech
[01:52:45] <CoolHand> maybe I'll switch my 03:00 story with the afghan girls
[01:52:55] <mrcoolbp> takyon: I'm back, lemme take a look at that article you asked me to
[01:53:03] <cmn32480> but quite honestly, at this point, the queue is pretty thin on anything
[01:53:08] * mrcoolbp tips fedora to CoolHand and cmn32480
[01:53:12] <CoolHand> true I noticed
[01:53:26] * cmn32480 watches for the bullwhip in his other hand
[01:53:30] <takyon> i've read a bit more and this is definitely big story
[01:53:34] <CoolHand> heh, mrcoolbp wears afedora..
[01:54:23] <cmn32480> is it a red fedora?
[01:54:46] <cmn32480> that'd make it a systemd endorsement....
[01:54:55] * mrcoolbp sighs
[01:55:16] <cmn32480> I've been exasperating people all day. You are far from the first mrcoolbp
[01:55:30] <takyon> I'm adding a few links to the end of Seymour Hersh story
[01:55:54] <CoolHand> cmn32480: did you ever get my email I sent u?
[01:56:10] <cmn32480> I did.... and RL has been a cast iron bitch the last few days
[01:56:23] <CoolHand> cool.. just wanted to make sure it didn't wind up in the ether
[01:57:44] <mrcoolbp> takyon: that's pretty interesting
[01:57:51] <cmn32480> egad... we have like 3 topics in the story queue
[01:58:17] <takyon> you can refresh to get the links
[01:58:32] <cmn32480> privacy... afghanistan.... and not much else
[01:59:29] <CoolHand> good links takyon
[01:59:52] <takyon> gewg's TPP is pretty important
[02:00:28] <takyon> also I've hated that none of the mainstream media's coverage mentions intellectual property, even though EFF has been on top of opposing TPP long before it was a political issue
[02:01:08] <cmn32480> intellectual property isn't an attention getter
[02:01:25] <cmn32480> lost jobs and stuff that hits your wallet is
[02:01:42] <cmn32480> but I agree, they are only covering the "if it bleeds, it leads" part of the story
[02:02:07] <CoolHand> lets wait for gewgs tpp story though to see if we get more tech articles to interlace
[02:02:28] <takyon> it's a bit time sensitive since the rejection happened a few hours ago
[02:02:34] <CoolHand> as well as takyon's other article
[02:02:43] <CoolHand> ah, well if u guys wanna do it, ok...
[02:02:56] <CoolHand> just worried about whining about all the political stories/no tech
[02:03:05] <mrcoolbp> do we need to submit some stories? I'm dead tired after a 14 hour day, prolly don't have more than 1 or 2 in me
[02:03:08] <CoolHand> I personaly dont' care
[02:03:11] <takyon> you could wait all month to run my story, since it's esoteric and public comment doesn't end until july
[02:03:16] <cmn32480> if we publish all tech, they'll find somethign else to whine about
[02:03:23] <CoolHand> cmn32480: true
[02:03:25] <mrcoolbp> aye, there is always whining
[02:03:34] <takyon> I can submit a story, I just need to stop and think. I've been dealing with this seymour stuff
[02:03:36] <mrcoolbp> trust me, I would know after over a year here = )
[02:03:52] <takyon> I consume over 100 news articles a day
[02:04:02] <cmn32480> I think I saw something cool on Facebook earlier
[02:04:05] * cmn32480 ducks
[02:04:57] <takyon> so this fridge story
[02:05:07] <takyon> it comes out of an IoT conference that is producing a lot of stories
[02:05:09] <takyon> such as this one
[02:05:20] <takyon> http://www.theregister.co.uk
[02:05:21] <Manbearpig> ^ 03Samsung debuts Artik, its new software n' chips for the Internet of Stuff • The Register
[02:05:33] <takyon> a new chipline from Samsung is a pretty big deal
[02:05:48] <takyon> we also have this: http://www.theregister.co.uk
[02:05:50] <Manbearpig> ^ 03Russia delays ISS crew mission over Progress launch safety fears • The Register
[02:06:07] <takyon> and guaranteed fun: http://www.theregister.co.uk
[02:06:09] <Manbearpig> ^ 03That DRM support in Firefox you never asked for? It's here • The Register
[02:06:40] <takyon> I'll run artik first
[02:06:52] <cmn32480> I'll work on this one: http://www.nasa.gov

[02:10:21] <takyon> need to find out the size of an american postage stamp
[02:11:07] <takyon> wolfram alpha is slipping hard
[02:13:37] <mrcoolbp> Guys I'm here on a support role at this point, runnin' on fumes kinda
[02:15:37] * CoolHand has to hit the hay
[02:15:47] <CoolHand> gnite guys
[02:15:47] <mrcoolbp> I'm on tomorrow, can prolly assist with some editing but I gotta try to pester the CPA further
[02:15:52] <mrcoolbp> g'night CoolHand
[02:17:09] <mrcoolbp> takyon, cmn32480, let me knw if you need assitance
[02:17:26] <takyon> k
[02:17:28] <cmn32480> you can't afford that much beer
[02:17:36] <mrcoolbp> I could make it
[02:17:42] <mrcoolbp> s/make/brew/
[02:17:45] <takyon> Samsung has unveiled three new systems-on-a-chip (SoC) at the Internet of Things World 2015 conference in San Francisco.
[02:17:53] <takyon> is that a correct way to pluralize SoCs
[02:17:56] <takyon> lol
[02:18:09] <mrcoolbp> Sys- chips-on, oh darnit
[02:19:19] <takyon> I know right
[02:19:33] <takyon> someone somewhere has had to have written it like this, right
[02:20:05] <mrcoolbp> probably
[02:21:16] * mrcoolbp found "System(s)-on-a-Chip" in a google search
[02:21:19] <mrcoolbp> I think you are good
[02:23:24] <takyon> hmm I haven't seen a power consumption mentioned
[02:23:53] <takyon> whatever it is, it's really low
[02:24:16] <mrcoolbp> I think the SoCs in general have lowe consumption
[02:24:46] <takyon> I think Artik 1 might be much lower
[02:25:02] <takyon> it's a dual core, one clocked at 250 MHz, the other at 80 MHz
[02:25:11] <mrcoolbp> that seems low
[02:25:19] <takyon> the Artik 10 is an octo-core, not too much different from the high-end smartphone SoCs
[02:26:16] <mrcoolbp> I wish I had cooler things to do with the supercomputer in my pocket
[02:26:19] <takyon> I need the fancy multiplication X
[02:26:27] <mrcoolbp> mostly just read email on the thing yaknow?
[02:26:30] <takyon> you should do one of those Android folding@home things
[02:26:41] * mrcoolbp has an iphone
[02:26:43] * mrcoolbp ducks
[02:26:55] <takyon> welp
[02:27:14] <mrcoolbp> I put it in a lifeproof this time, the thing is a tank you have to understand. And it works and I don't have to mess with it
[02:27:44] <mrcoolbp> I can't compile a new photoshop on the thing (not a dev anyway) but it does mostly what I want it to really fast
[02:28:00] <cmn32480> I'm sorry mrcoolbp. I just don't think we can be friends anymore.
[02:28:09] <mrcoolbp> s'cool
[02:28:32] <takyon> mrcoolbp walks a solemn path
[02:28:35] <mrcoolbp> I'm the geekest guy of my friends IRL, but it's the opposite around here = )
[02:28:41] <mrcoolbp> it's kinda fun
[02:28:48] <cmn32480> actually, I've heard really nice things about the 6+
[02:28:53] <takyon> ok waht I need is a fancy multiplication X
[02:29:03] <cmn32480> other than the whole Apple wallged garden thing
[02:29:21] <mrcoolbp> I'm just a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none-except-maybe-blues-guitar
[02:29:22] * chromas gives takyon an ×
[02:29:27] <takyon> got it ×
[02:29:56] <takyon> I think I'll just throw this samsung blog in and i'll be good
[02:30:06] * mrcoolbp uses both hands and shakes chromas repeatedly
[02:30:42] <cmn32480> watch out for the fedora chromas!
[02:30:56] <mrcoolbp> yeah it's pointy
[02:30:56] <takyon> ok
[02:31:00] <takyon> phew
[02:33:05] <cmn32480> I just dropped a NASA article in the queue... complete with youtube of rockets firing
[02:34:31] <cmn32480> time for me to hit the sack guys
[02:34:41] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: fare thee well
[02:34:49] <cmn32480> tomorrow promises to be another long day :-)
[02:34:53] * mrcoolbp looks at the queue
[02:35:02] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I'm around tomorrow to help
[02:35:19] <cmn32480> excellent.
[02:35:24] <takyon> every day is a step closer to the robot apocalypse
