[12:31:13] <nick> hi cmn32480
[12:31:23] <cmn32480> hey nick
[12:33:41] <nick> how goes?
[12:33:50] <cmn32480> not too bad
[12:33:57] <cmn32480> trying to buy some time on a couple projects
[12:34:42] <nick> too much to do and too little time?
[12:34:43] <cmn32480> how 'bout you? things good?
[12:34:52] <cmn32480> pretty much
[12:35:22] <nick> things are going alright, still catching up from last week
[12:35:23] <cmn32480> vendor ship dates have slipped on a few big projects, and that has completely fubar'd the schedule for the summer
[12:36:34] <nick> yeah, i can see that happening. don't know whats fubar'd the schedule on my end, but i'm going to go with, if i was project managing it, it would have all been done a month ago ;)
[12:38:43] <cmn32480> I am project managing it (at least partially)
[12:38:59] <cmn32480> manufacturer ship dates on equipment have totally screwed me this summer
[12:40:41] <cmn32480> but oh well. we roll with the punches and hope to come up on our feet
[12:41:12] <cmn32480> on the up side, management is trying to get us the space next door so we can expand
[12:41:37] <cmn32480> too much work is sometimes a problem. but a good one to have

[12:43:08] <cmn32480> there goes the neighborhood
[12:43:25] <cmn32480> janrinok !!
[12:44:16] * cmn32480 wonders if nick knows about the new editorial greeting
[12:47:47] * nick does not
[12:48:08] <nick> g'day janrinok :)
[12:50:58] <janrinok> afternoon nick - sup?
[12:57:04] <nick> doing the email thing for the minute, although i should have some lunch before i head off to a meeting
[12:57:27] <janrinok> what's for lunch?
[12:58:02] <nick> one day it will be pancakes, bacon and maple syrup. i've had bacon waiting to be used for over a week.
[12:58:13] <nick> but for today, bbq beef sandwich i'm thinking.
[12:58:30] <janrinok> sounds good to me!
[13:08:35] * nick wonders if he shouldnt have impulse purchased/bid on ebay book auctions...
[13:09:12] <cmn32480> depends on the book
[13:09:27] <nick> it's never just one book...
[13:10:10] <nick> one of the impulse purchases last night was a recent 10 volume set of the 'Transactions of the Royal Historical Society'
[13:10:59] <janrinok> cmn32480: hi, sorry I was afk wasting time talking to my wife! pse forgive me!
[13:11:33] <cmn32480> it is not my forgiveness you need, but hers for leaving her to talk to us!
[13:11:59] <nick> lol
[13:12:36] <janrinok> we are/were having a good laugh - and that is a cure for anything so she was quite happy
[13:16:18] <nick> it is a very good cure all
[13:17:54] * nick just managed to get out of an early service call tomorrow
[13:17:55] <nick> :D
[13:18:49] <janrinok> well done, small victories...
[13:19:50] <nick> i need more motivation than a 10 minute service call to get me on site at 9am.
[13:27:19] <janrinok> cmn32480: are working near to home today or are you on your travels again?
[13:27:29] <cmn32480> no.. I'm in the office all week
[13:27:56] <janrinok> that makes a (pleasant) change I imagine?
[13:28:04] <cmn32480> feels kinda new and different
[13:32:27] <cmn32480> how about you, jarnrinok? enjoying tea in the garden this morning?
[13:33:14] <janrinok> I was, but S decided to stay indoors. But this afternoon I am sat at my computers next to an open window, listening to the birdsong.
[13:33:31] <janrinok> it's a hard life for some
[13:41:32] <cmn32480> I almost shed a tear for you. Almost.
[13:43:01] <janrinok> I know, but you get aircon at work right? I have to put up with noisy birds!
[13:44:13] <cmn32480> there goes that almost ear again...
[13:44:26] <janrinok> :)
[13:44:27] <cmn32480> *tear
[13:44:36] <nick> rofl
[13:45:00] <janrinok> I was just going to say- the birds aren't that loud that my ear goes anywhere...
[13:52:20] <cmn32480> nick - these retired folks jsut can't help rubbing it in on us working stiffs... it's liek they forget what it is like to not have a life of leisure
[13:53:29] <janrinok> young whippersnappers, Fought in 2 wars, served my country, lost all 3 legs in battle etc etc
[13:54:55] <cmn32480> and he walked uphill 6 miles in snow year round to school with no shoes and only a thin t-shirt to keep him warm.
[13:55:14] <cmn32480> but it was weird, the uphill was both ways
[13:56:01] <janrinok> yes, exactly, except I went by bus and wore a thick coat and boots. But, yes!
[13:56:56] <cmn32480> so janrinok, how fast could you reload your musket?
[13:57:35] <janrinok> fast enough, but I could run quite quickly if I dropped it and got the hell out of there
[14:30:11] * cmn32480 mumbles something about skills learned from the French Army....
[14:31:56] <janrinok> ah, but I was a fully-domaciled brit at that time - the advance running-away course came much too late for me to benefit from it.

[19:02:33] <janrinok> cmn32480: she is only about 5 paces from where I am sitting...
[19:02:36] <takyon> I added a little note since this was just a link sub
[19:03:41] <cmn32480> then you better not tell her you been here for 8 hours. she'll beat you with a wet noodle.
[19:04:01] <janrinok> what we do in our own home is entirely up to us :)
[19:04:37] <cmn32480> it certainly is. but it's not my fault juggs hacked your webcam
[19:04:42] * janrinok thinks it would be good if she also wore the high heeled boots and feather boa...

[19:06:20] <CoolHand> kinda like a sex party though, so maybe I should back out with all the d00ds involved..
[19:06:57] * CoolHand thinks commenting at this time is probably a bad idea as anything is likely to get twisted
[19:07:16] <cmn32480> so you like it twisted do you CoolHand? to each his own I suppose
[19:07:25] <CoolHand> my point!
[19:07:33] <janrinok> twisted wet noodles - that's perverted!

[19:08:09] * janrinok looks at CoolHand with a concerned look
[19:08:33] * cmn32480 looks at janrinok with a concerned look
[19:08:58] * CoolHand just looks concerned
[19:09:02] * janrinok looks at cmn32480 with a concerned look
[19:09:20] <cmn32480> if I was getting it twisted at the point, I'd be concerned too!
[19:09:26] * janrinok puts his glasses back on
[19:09:57] * takyon puts on two pairs of glasses
[19:10:17] * cmn32480 can't see without without his glasses

[19:10:31] * cmn32480 *can't see with or without his glasses
[19:10:52] * janrinok can't see with cmn32480's glasses, nor using CoolHand's welding mask

[19:18:01] <takyon> "Meira initially hoped to sell the Grillo for 400 pesos, or about 26 dollars, though now that he’s deep into the the trials and tribulations of electronics manufacturing, he expects the finished product to cost twice that, but as the next cheapest competitor costs around $1300, he can keep a more-than-competitive edge."
