[13:49:04] cmn32480|BillyJoel is now known as cmn32480
[13:49:19] <janrinok> the raver returns!
[13:49:23] <cmn32480> HA
[13:49:24] <janrinok> cmn32480: !!
[13:49:30] <cmn32480> janrinok !!
[13:49:46] <janrinok> you sound chipper - you both had a good evening?
[13:50:03] <cmn32480> got home at 1am EST
[13:50:19] <cmn32480> need coffee in a bad way
[13:50:21] <janrinok> I suppose the kids didn't let you lie int
[13:50:31] <cmn32480> I jsut woke up
[13:50:35] <cmn32480> J is still sleeping
[13:50:43] <janrinok> hey, that's not too bad at all then
[13:51:03] <cmn32480> BIlly told me to tell you "Hello"
[13:51:16] <cmn32480> knew exactly who you were when I described you
[13:51:35] <janrinok> oh, so it's 'Billy' now is it - and just because you mentioned my name!
[13:52:11] <cmn32480> "guy from row 27, in Berlin, 1989, between 5 and six ft tall, about 170lbs, pornostache
[13:52:31] <janrinok> damn - that's close enough
[13:53:06] <cmn32480> he replied back to me "OH! that guy! British I think, his name was HArold Wankerstein, if I recall correctly
[13:53:12] <cmn32480> went by HArry Wanker
[13:53:30] <janrinok> it might have been then, I've changed it a few times since - or had it changed for me!
[13:54:16] <cmn32480> hehehe
[13:54:43] <cmn32480> he asked how you were, I told him good
[13:54:46] <cmn32480> he sends his best
[13:55:11] <janrinok> I think he was still seeing CB at the time I last saw him
[13:55:46] <janrinok> but I could be wrong on that
[13:56:04] <cmn32480> '89? yes he was still married to her
[13:56:26] <cmn32480> and at 60+ CB still has a body to kill for
[13:56:44] <janrinok> she was certainly looking good then!
[13:57:35] <cmn32480> she still is.
[13:58:06] <cmn32480> http://www.dailymail.co.uk
[13:58:10] <cmn32480> from yesterday

[13:59:33] <cmn32480> or her public instagram acct

[13:59:48] <janrinok> with the exception of perhaps her wrists and hands, she looks at least 20 years younger - I hope that didn't sound wrong, it was meant to be a compliment
[14:02:47] <cmn32480> agreed
[14:02:58] <cmn32480> her daughters are no sluch either
[14:03:02] <janrinok> got a coffee now?
[14:03:10] <janrinok> nope - agreed back
[14:03:37] <cmn32480> nope.. daught started to freak
[14:03:44] <cmn32480> need to go make the coffee
[14:03:52] <cmn32480> had to keep her quiet
[14:04:02] <cmn32480> so J can stay asleep
[14:04:02] * janrinok notes that that was an unfortunate spelling mistake - it could have been slut or slouch - but I suspect the latter!
[14:04:24] <cmn32480> yes.. meant slouch
[14:04:32] <janrinok> that's what I assumed :)
[14:04:36] <cmn32480> damn editos can't type
[14:04:42] <janrinok> lol ^
[14:04:44] <cmn32480> and the editors either
[14:05:02] <janrinok> my laughing will wake J up if I'm not careful
[14:05:21] <cmn32480> me thinks we'll be ok
[14:08:05] <cmn32480> going to make the coffee.. brb
[14:11:44] <cmn32480> ok
[14:11:49] <cmn32480> tha'll take a few minutes
[14:29:23] <cmn32480> holy spacephotos batman!
[14:29:53] <janrinok> just a few - I like it, but what do you think the reaction will be?
[14:30:04] <cmn32480> personally.. I think it is cool
[14:30:12] <cmn32480> community reaction?
[14:30:18] <janrinok> well, we'll see what the comments say :)
[14:30:19] <cmn32480> wher'd I put my quarter.....
[14:30:49] <janrinok> I've put another story out about 30 minutes later
[14:33:21] <cmn32480> the shakes shoudl set in any moment now
[14:33:21] <janrinok> lol
[14:34:11] <cmn32480> I think that is a fine tactic to gauge reaction. but I'd give 45-1hr for them to froth and boil
[14:34:47] <janrinok> I was thinking that the subsequent story would take the heat out of things :)
[14:35:07] <cmn32480> it's FUN to see the froth and boil
[14:35:19] <cmn32480> as long as you don't take the criticism too seriously
[14:35:27] <janrinok> I'll get over it
[14:35:38] <cmn32480> I sure hope!
[14:36:13] <cmn32480> we need to remind all eds that tehy need to initial their comments
[14:36:38] <cmn32480> changed title to match linked story so as to not be controversial 'String Thoery for Dummies' is, in light of a recent story here, a bit inflamatory and would lead the discussion off track.
[14:36:48] <cmn32480> and they spelled theory wrong
[14:36:51] <janrinok> comments in stories or comments in 'ed comment' fields?
[14:36:57] <cmn32480> ed comment field
[14:37:01] <janrinok> k
[14:37:08] <cmn32480> it was you, wasn't it?
[14:37:27] <janrinok> no Bytram - I've already correct quite a few spolling mistooks
[14:37:33] <janrinok> corrected*
[14:37:40] <cmn32480> not from our crack editorial team!
[14:37:55] <cmn32480> *on crack
[14:39:47] <cmn32480> I found a missed captial letter
[14:40:02] <cmn32480> I musta hit the right button... I can smell the coffee.......<drool>
[14:40:08] <janrinok> go for it
[14:40:17] <cmn32480> no, I fixzed the captial letter
[14:40:23] <cmn32480> I didn't ask permission
[14:40:39] <janrinok> I meant go for the coffee!
[14:40:45] <cmn32480> Creating Spelling Mistakes: That's how I roll!
[14:42:41] <janrinok> I have posted myself to a standstill again...
[14:44:07] <cmn32480> how so
[14:45:12] <janrinok> my mind is stalling. I've done more work on my bot and posted another 4 stories, and I didn't sleep well last night. I think I am past the 'intelligent thinking' stage for today
[14:46:02] <cmn32480> then go have some tea
[14:46:05] <cmn32480> read to S
[14:46:14] <cmn32480> play in the garden
[14:46:41] <cmn32480> i have a duagter climbing on my lap while I type
[14:46:50] <janrinok> we are just having tea, S is watching TV, and it is raining quite hard at the moment. I'll stay here I think.
[14:47:00] <cmn32480> ok
[14:47:35] <cmn32480> I have a few e-books ( a series of historical fiction that takes palce in Scotland that I highly recommend
[14:47:59] <janrinok> I sent an email to Phoenix666 - I told him about TMB's API for making submissions and I might have solved his timeout problems. I expect a response over the next day or two
[14:48:11] <cmn32480> she keeps telling me "I'm sitting on you Daddy!"
[14:48:23] <janrinok> which is a perfectly correct statement
[14:48:33] <janrinok> and I bet you are grinning
[14:49:17] <cmn32480> giggling mostly
[14:49:28] <cmn32480> tryign to keep her quit so as not to wake J
[14:49:29] <janrinok> close enough
[14:49:36] <cmn32480> *quiet
[14:49:59] <cmn32480> excellent idea w/ P666
[14:50:44] <cmn32480> she stole my hands to prevent yping
[14:51:00] <cmn32480> now holding my little finger on each hand
[14:51:02] <janrinok> he is #4 on our list of top submitters, but he has a long way to go to catch the #1, AnonTechie

[14:57:12] <janrinok> He's happy with the information that I have provided although he doesn't think that he is tripping any of the anti-flood timeouts. But he has something to work with now and is grateful for the info.
[14:57:44] <cmn32480> he is a good guy and is doing a fine job of helping us in our quest
[15:01:03] <cmn32480> my daughter just discovered what happens when you talk inot a fan
[15:01:34] <cmn32480> it's hilarious

[15:03:23] <cmn32480> you like historical fiction?
[15:03:30] <cmn32480> 18th century
[15:03:38] <janrinok> I could give it a try]
[15:04:02] <cmn32480> I assume you have a tablet/e-readerthat will do PDF?
[15:04:48] <janrinok> I have neither - I have 8 computers that will do PDF though...
[15:04:54] <cmn32480> oh dear.. those are all audio books
[15:05:05] <janrinok> np - thanks for the thought
[15:05:20] <janrinok> I avoid mobile devices

[15:05:31] <cmn32480> undertandable
[15:05:42] <cmn32480> perhaps audio books for S?
[15:06:20] * cmn32480 goes digging
[15:06:37] <cmn32480> hmmm.. no the pdf version of the manual for my car won't help
[15:07:27] * cmn32480 gets a shovel
[15:07:51] <cmn32480> no... that's harry potter in PDF
[15:08:43] <janrinok> not for S thanks, reading is something that she can no longer get any pleasure from.
[15:08:57] <cmn32480> ok
[15:09:13] <takyon> sped red
[15:09:53] <janrinok> it is sad watching someone who was once a teacher an so active slowly deteriorate.
[15:09:57] <takyon> 61 year olds will look better than that once stem cell treatments are mainstream
[15:09:58] <janrinok> takyon: !!
[15:10:24] <janrinok> I assume you are referring to CB :) ?
[15:10:57] <takyon> right

[15:11:51] * cmn32480 puts awat the pick and shovel
[15:11:57] <takyon> I think I'll do something on EFF wanting a better pick for the new Librarian of Congress
[15:12:31] <cmn32480> I was wrong... they are epub.
[15:13:42] <takyon> lol are you sharing pirated ebooks
[15:13:49] <cmn32480> nope.

[15:13:56] <cmn32480> in hardback
[15:14:01] <cmn32480> paperback
[15:14:04] <cmn32480> Kindle
[15:14:19] <cmn32480> and I think J might have them in whatever format the nook uses as well
[15:14:28] <takyon> "I own epubs" - licensee
[15:14:33] <cmn32480> I have at least 2 of the hardbacks that are signed
[15:14:46] <cmn32480> by the author
[15:15:13] <cmn32480> (she is a very nice lady, about 63-64, and only stands about 4'8")
[15:17:52] <takyon> J.K. Rowling?
[15:17:58] <cmn32480> no
[15:18:04] <janrinok> brb - nurse needs my assistance
[15:18:16] <cmn32480> though I own her stuff as well. just only one copy
[15:18:30] <cmn32480> actually no.2 copies.

[15:18:38] <takyon> Librarian of Congress is a nice gig
[15:19:05] <cmn32480> I'm far past the stage where I pirate stuff.

[15:28:05] <cmn32480> interesting thoguht from crutchy at 0413 in #soylent
[15:28:15] <takyon> The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is agitating for a Librarian of Congress that will loosen restrictions on fair use and get ______ to the digital age.
[15:28:17] <cmn32480> I'm trying to figure out where the QUote came from
[15:28:18] <takyon> fill in the blank
[15:28:49] <cmn32480> the idiots in the government and MAFIAA
[15:29:09] <takyon> I was thinking "accustomed" or "adjusted"
[15:29:37] <cmn32480> oh
[15:29:48] <cmn32480> well I took that in a whole different direction, didn't I?
[15:32:20] <cmn32480> "and get in sync wiht the digital age." ?
[15:32:58] <takyon> hmm, sounds almost too digital
[15:33:16] <takyon> time to break out the thesaurus
[15:33:25] <cmn32480> and understand how content use has changed in the digital age
[15:33:49] <cmn32480> how content use has evolved
[15:34:34] <takyon> I like that except for "understand"
[15:34:56] <takyon> "appreciate"
[15:35:01] <cmn32480> better
[15:37:28] janrinok is now known as janrinok_afk

[15:41:31] <takyon> uh yeah
[15:41:38] <cmn32480> I looked at ti briefly, and got side tracked by my daughter
[15:41:48] <takyon> it's an imperfect system
[15:41:59] <cmn32480> but agreed, it is an interesting story
[15:42:16] <cmn32480> darn kids... need food, and attention...
[15:47:04] <takyon> janrinok_afk: bot put underscores in the CNET story title

[19:00:40] <janrinok> very true
[19:00:44] <cmn32480> but I can only be thankful that the project is winding down.

[19:01:27] <Bender> karma - hummus: 2
[19:01:28] <cmn32480> not a big surprise in taht karma number
[19:01:47] <cmn32480> same in #soylent
[19:01:51] <janrinok> not a topic that comes up often in editorial circles
[19:02:05] <cmn32480> or in general around here, I woudl think
[19:02:29] <cmn32480> in all truth.. I'm still pretty wiped form the concert last night
[19:02:53] <janrinok> not surprised - staying out till all hours.
[19:02:56] <cmn32480> LeAnn Rimes was the opening act starting at about 8pm.
[19:03:15] <cmn32480> she played for 5-6 songs, then Bill Joel came on about 8:30
[19:03:27] <cmn32480> played 'till 11.
[19:03:31] <janrinok> that's not much from the supporting act
[19:03:58] <cmn32480> yeah... but her catalogue of hits can be counted on one hand
[19:04:08] <cmn32480> she was huge for about 15 minutes
[19:04:13] <janrinok> or on the fingers of one foot
[19:04:31] <cmn32480> basically
[19:04:50] <cmn32480> she had like 2 or 3 songs that I can identify as hers when they come on
[19:04:55] <cmn32480> beyond that?
[19:04:57] <cmn32480> pht
[19:05:12] <cmn32480> his catalog of hits on the other hand
[19:05:16] <janrinok> so he should have chosen a bigger supporting act
[19:05:26] <cmn32480> nope.
[19:05:35] <cmn32480> shoudl ahve chosen NO supporting act
[19:05:50] <janrinok> well, if he did 2:30 that was a good ticket's worth of entertainment
[19:05:52] <cmn32480> this is the first time in the 6 or 8 times I have seen him that he had an opener
[19:06:12] <cmn32480> agreed
[19:06:50] <janrinok> how's J this morning?
[19:06:54] <cmn32480> it is very cool when he plays piano man at the end, and the whole stadium is rocking to the sound of no band but just the audience singing the chorus
[19:07:13] <cmn32480> feeling better
[19:07:18] <cmn32480> headache seems to be gone
[19:07:33] <cmn32480> mine is slowly receeding as I eat (duh?)
[19:07:48] <janrinok> blood sugars low?
[19:07:53] <cmn32480> probably
[19:14:15] <cmn32480> sorry was paged to put 2 down for a nap
[19:14:27] <cmn32480> actually #2 and #3
[19:14:59] <janrinok> hope you were successful
[19:15:22] <cmn32480> tears and screaming are music to my ears
[19:15:29] <janrinok> lol
[19:15:34] <cmn32480> why esle would I have volunteered to be an editor?
[19:15:43] <janrinok> lol x 2
[19:16:05] <janrinok> it's a shame most of the tears come from other editors though ....
[19:16:30] <cmn32480> true... and they are more fun when you cause them, not jsut have to listen to them.
[19:22:34] <cmn32480> my 6 year old jsut told m ethey used wipes from a cylinder-like bottle
[19:22:42] <cmn32480> he is getting old and smart
[19:23:07] <janrinok> true - but did he say what they used them for?
[19:23:16] <cmn32480> cleaning
[19:23:22] <cmn32480> like chlorox wipes
[19:24:09] <cmn32480> I was more impressed that he called it a cylinder
