[13:46:41] <n1> g'day janrinok
[13:47:21] <janrinok> hi n1
[13:47:46] <janrinok> look! Its Friday, and there are stories in the queue!
[13:49:16] <cmn32480> it was rather shocking to me as well
[13:49:54] <cmn32480> but the submission really picked up this week
[13:50:57] <janrinok> hi cmn32480 , hope you and your family are all well!
[13:51:14] <cmn32480> we are doing good janrinok. how about you and yours?
[13:51:40] <janrinok> can't complain at all thx
[13:51:49] <cmn32480> and thansk for fixing that TSA article. I didn't see the update to the story in the queue unitl I was shutting down
[13:51:49] <janrinok> CoolHand: you here?
[13:51:56] <janrinok> np
[13:52:15] <janrinok> I merged the virus detector story too
[13:54:23] <janrinok> I'm not sure if CH has miss quoted a link, or whether he really meant to put a video about Myanmar in the OpenGL story...!
[13:54:38] <janrinok> I suspect the former for now
[13:54:44] <cmn32480> oh dear... likely you are correct
[13:55:42] <janrinok> it's gone now
[13:57:01] <cmn32480> like it never even happenend
[13:57:04] <janrinok> lol
[13:58:15] <n1> hows things going, janrinok?
[13:58:33] <cmn32480> hey n1. long time no talk
[13:59:09] <n1> hey there cmn32480
[13:59:46] <n1> been a few days of catching up with normal work after the festival, before the next one
[14:00:00] <cmn32480> I know the feeling.. I'm forever "catching up"
[14:00:08] <cmn32480> damn company keeps adding to the list
[14:00:33] <janrinok> Not been a bad week. Weather has been OK so I've had a bit of exercise by doing the garden. Much more restful than last week's 'editgate' and we have had some very good stories over the last few days
[14:01:35] <n1> yeah, its been nice with the weather
[14:01:43] <n1> spent quite a bit of time outside enjoying the sun
[14:01:59] <cmn32480> editgate? has the american lexicon so pervaded the world that any scandal now has to end in "gate" everywhere?
[14:02:31] <cmn32480> raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock here all week.
[14:04:04] <janrinok> Yes, I think mrcoolbp coined the expression
[14:04:26] <cmn32480> that woudl explain it
[14:04:30] <janrinok> cmn32480: a very descriptive but over-visual image then
[14:04:37] <cmn32480> so the next one will be editgate II
[14:04:50] <cmn32480> did it get the point across quite well janrinok?
[14:05:10] <janrinok> perfectly - most apt
[14:05:10] <cmn32480> and you probably even smiled.. or maybe laughed!
[14:05:24] <janrinok> stayed on my chair but laughing
[14:05:32] <cmn32480> i know.. us weird Americans
[14:08:23] <LaminatorX> Editgate: We actually edit.
[14:08:32] <janrinok> lol hi Lammy!
[14:09:06] <LaminatorX> Yo!
[14:09:21] <janrinok> looking forward to a good weekend?
[14:09:23] <cmn32480> heya LaminatorX
[14:09:55] * LaminatorX finds the -gate suffix asinine. The name of the hotel was the least significant thing about Nixon's scandal.
[14:10:20] * cmn32480 agrees with LaminatorX
[14:10:55] * LaminatorX loves referring to himself in the third person though.
[14:11:29] * cmn32480 agrees with LaminatorX
[14:12:16] <LaminatorX> I'm ready for some weekend. I'll mostly be kid shufflin with two birthday parties and a play in the mix, but it should be a good time.
[14:12:34] <janrinok> you love it, don't deny it
[14:15:05] <LaminatorX> My five year old is actually in a real tragic gut-puncher of a play full of torture, murder, totalitarianism, and abuse, but none of that is in her scene. The fact that she shows up near the end alive and happy is a surprise twist. Needless to say, we leave the intercom in the green room off while waiting for her scene.
[14:16:55] <janrinok> that seems like a pretty intense play for a 5-year-old. She is obviously of higher calibre than our own 5-year-olds who dream of the role of 'Peppa Pig' or somesuch.
[14:18:27] <cmn32480> my kids are currently dreaming of being ObiWan Kenobe. And I am surprised that you know who Peppa Pig is janrinok!
[14:18:46] * janrinok heard some kids talking on a bus...
[14:20:15] <LaminatorX> The director is a friend of a friend, and her school-year ended just in time for her to stay up late. She understands in broad strokes that the other actors are behaving the way they are because their characters all thought her character had been killed, and they're surprised that she's alive. Further details about the plot are left opaque to her.
[14:21:50] <janrinok> good move - but nevertheless she is obviously a bright kid
[14:23:25] <LaminatorX> Thanks. :) As for her own ambitions, she would like to perhaps be The Wasp from the 2011 Avengers cartoon, or perhaps attend Monster High.
[14:23:56] <janrinok> so, she's bright but perfectly normal. That's an even better combination.

[14:30:35] <LaminatorX_> I'm having some connectivity problems here.
[14:31:51] <janrinok> so it would seem
[14:32:38] <LaminatorX_> It seems /ghost is gone. Do I have to elevate to op status and /kick zombie me?

[14:33:08] <janrinok> I don't know - I didn't realise that it had gone either...
[14:33:34] <LaminatorX_> Looks like other-me times out at 4 minutes in any case.

[14:33:50] <janrinok> there can never be too many yous
[14:34:39] * LaminatorX is actually a failed clone of Jose Ferrer.
[14:35:07] <janrinok> I'd have to Google Jose Ferrer for that one to work for me
[14:35:09] <LaminatorX> brb
[14:36:26] <janrinok> is someone rescheduling stories? I seem to be misreading release times
[14:42:21] <LaminatorX> Jose played Emperor Shaddam IV in David Lynch's Dune film, and Cyrano in the old black & white adaptation.
[14:42:51] <janrinok> thx - I was busy editing and hadn't got roung to it yet :)
[14:44:10] <LaminatorX> It looks like tha cache might've hiccuoughed for a moment there. Seems OK now though.
[14:44:52] <takyon> I rescheduled
[14:45:20] <takyon> it was not nearly aggressive enough so I moved several stories up ranging from 30 minutes to a cascading 2 hours
[14:45:26] <takyon> i'm looking at TISA story
[14:45:44] <janrinok> takyon: np, but I thought I was misreading the columns
[14:46:24] <takyon> I'm hoping we can get this feature eventually, it would make it much easier: https://github.com
[14:46:24] <NetCraft> ^ 03multiple datestamp update · Issue #448 · SoylentNews/slashcode · GitHub
[14:51:11] <janrinok> not a bad suggestion ;)

[15:04:15] <takyon> infinite attacks on digital liberties
[15:06:52] <n1> when there are none left to attack, we will be safe
[15:11:07] <takyon> thanks n1
[15:13:22] <CoolHand> yeah somebody adjusted time on my articles.. they're a lot shorter now. I now we have a lot of subs currently, but Fridays and weekends are usually slow for them, and we don't have enough for the entire weekend (especially publishing at 90 min. intervals)...
[15:15:37] <CoolHand> (not to mention a couple of the current runs might get rejected)
[15:18:21] <takyon> no 90m on weekdays plz
[15:18:27] <takyon> err, 2h
[16:32:47] <CoolHand> takyon: in Evil Brother story, I uppercased Evil Brother in title, and added original submission link, fyi..

[22:54:13] <takyon> yeah I rushed that one, and I've only just started adding orig sub links myself
[22:54:16] <takyon> now that it's settled
