[02:12:20] <CoolHand> anyone on?
[02:14:19] <CoolHand> takyon:
[02:14:24] <takyon> yeah
[02:15:03] <CoolHand> u know how to escape parentheses in a url with rehash?
[02:16:07] <takyon> uhhh
[02:16:13] <CoolHand> n/m
[02:16:30] <takyon> %28 and %29?
[02:16:32] <CoolHand> I thought SN was changing it when I previewed , but palemoon is apparently doing it
[02:16:48] <takyon> %28 = (
[02:17:16] <CoolHand> yeah, palemoon did %28 and %29 but the rehash took out the link when I previewed.. so if I change it to regular parentheses, it works..
[02:17:19] <CoolHand> sorry to bother u
[02:17:22] <CoolHand> thanks
[02:17:28] <takyon> there are a couple of new Slashdot sells out stories, not sure what the heck to do with them
[02:17:45] <CoolHand> I saw them but didn't read?
[02:17:49] <CoolHand> is there any new info?
[02:17:56] <CoolHand> I don't want to just repost the same stuff
[02:18:15] <takyon> it's like these are stories that came out after Slashdot posted the post on their site
[02:18:24] <takyon> but it's like... not new. beats me
[02:18:30] <takyon> might just edit them into the old one
[02:18:48] <takyon> we could bump the old one, people have complained about that tho
[02:20:42] <CoolHand> so the only news in the submission
[02:20:50] <CoolHand> is that /. finally ran the story...
[02:21:16] <CoolHand> hmmm.. yeah, I think maybe just an editors note in today's story noting that would be more appropriate than running a whole new story
[02:28:45] <CoolHand> I'm off to bed... g'nite

[12:09:22] <cmn32480> had a lady old enough to be my mom hitting on me at the hotel bar last night
[12:09:38] <CoolHand> what's wrong with that?
[12:09:40] <cmn32480> and I mean literally the same age as my mom
[12:09:55] <CoolHand> cougars on the prowl..
[12:09:59] <cmn32480> nothing. was kind of a nice stork to the ego
[12:10:05] <cmn32480> *stroke
[12:10:19] <cmn32480> alas... I am still faithful to my marriage vows
[12:10:30] <cmn32480> oop.... tea's ready
[12:10:38] <janrinok> tea++
[12:10:38] <Bender> karma - tea: 12
[12:10:40] <CoolHand> happens to the best of us
[12:10:53] <CoolHand> tea? did janrinok corrupt you? :)
[12:10:57] <cmn32480> nope...
[12:11:01] <janrinok> I'm obviously not amongst the best of us....
[12:11:04] <cmn32480> but there are only 2 K-cups left
[12:11:25] <cmn32480> one coffee... one tea
[12:11:36] <janrinok> CoolHand: cmn32480 will be lifting boxes of tea out of the nearest harbour soon!
[12:11:45] <CoolHand> hah
[12:11:49] <cmn32480> nah... my back hurts a little
[12:12:14] <cmn32480> and the arthritis in my hand and shoulder...
[12:12:35] <janrinok> lifting too many boxes of tea!
[12:12:54] <cmn32480> ummmmmmm.... no
[12:13:17] <cmn32480> but each time I drink it I recall WHY they tossed it all in the harbor
[12:13:25] <CoolHand> lol, there ya go
[12:13:46] <cmn32480> (see what I did there CoolHand? :-)
[12:13:52] <janrinok> he say's that but he is still drinking it!
[12:14:25] <cmn32480> yup I am
[12:14:26] <janrinok> hows the rewiring going?
[12:14:37] <cmn32480> thank God I saved the coffee K-Cup to wash the taste away
[12:14:43] <cmn32480> ZING!
[12:15:20] <cmn32480> supposedly pretty good. I have to finish some card printer installation today, then get testing
[12:15:56] <cmn32480> the updates I have been getting from my crew is that they are making really quick progress
[12:16:21] <janrinok> it will be good to have that task behind you
[12:16:59] <cmn32480> I cannot wait to leave the city behind me, never to return
[12:17:26] <janrinok> Does J ever fancy joining you on one of your trips
[12:17:30] <cmn32480> J did not find it funny when I sent her a text of the sign out front of the Hustler Club say that this is where I was going for dinner
[12:17:50] * CoolHand is going to Madiso, WI area Sunday-Friday.. probably still do some editing, but won't be on my "normal schedule"
[12:18:04] <janrinok> CoolHand: noted, thanks
[12:18:12] <cmn32480> wait.... you have a normal anything??
[12:18:13] <CoolHand> cmn32480: hustler club? hustler club? where can I find this place..
[12:18:30] <cmn32480> he shoudl be banned as an editor
[12:18:37] <cmn32480> he's got somethign "normal"
[12:18:50] <CoolHand> normal schmormal.. I put it in quotes
[12:18:51] <cmn32480> Hustler Club... Bourbon St, New Orleans

[12:19:33] <janrinok> damn the tea has given him Yoda-speak
[12:19:46] <cmn32480> wise made me it has
[12:19:56] <janrinok> it does that to people who can't cope with it
[12:20:26] <cmn32480> paychecks doubled editors can have this week
[12:22:23] <janrinok> CoolHand: are you just looking at that story CH, or can I edit it pse
[12:22:58] <janrinok> disregard - I'm finished with it
[12:23:10] <cmn32480> a personal assistant in Win 10? is that like CLippy?
[12:24:53] <CoolHand> I"m not currently "in" any stories..
[12:25:10] <cmn32480> it's not a perfect system
[12:25:29] <janrinok> the computer tells me you are - so you MUST be!
[12:25:39] <cmn32480> blasted machines!
[12:25:54] <cmn32480> interesting.
[12:26:13] <cmn32480> the time zone on my phone changed to central time, as I would hav expecte.
[12:26:48] <cmn32480> it adjusts my calendar appts, while OUtlook on my computer (whhich I don't adjust the TZ on) deos not
[12:26:58] <cmn32480> I figured it was one or the other.
[12:27:05] <cmn32480> learned somethign new. do I get to go home?
[12:27:52] <janrinok> if only ....
[12:28:23] <cmn32480> then you could stop hearing me complain about my travels
[12:38:42] <cmn32480> ok. gotta get to the site. see y'all later
[12:38:55] cmn32480 is now known as cmn32480|workin
[12:39:15] <janrinok> have a good one!
[12:48:57] <janrinok> CoolHand: you might like to look at the (rewritten) story about the Sale of EBooks in Germany :)
[13:25:44] <CoolHand> ok, I will
[13:34:56] <CoolHand> cool... Is that Johanna a transgender dude? (that's what I was thinking when I read the original story)
[13:35:18] <janrinok> I guess so - but I stress I've never met him/her
[13:35:50] <CoolHand> not your secret anal lover then? :)
[13:35:59] <janrinok> I think that gets around the problem of keeping the site clean but letting people know the story. You agree?
[13:36:06] <CoolHand> yes I do..
[13:36:16] <CoolHand> it's a bit less confusing than what you originally had I think also
[13:36:20] <janrinok> no, not my sal
[13:36:51] <CoolHand> I just said that b/c the original story had several mentions of anal... heh
[13:36:52] <janrinok> well, speaking German I could understand what he/she was trying to say too
[13:39:07] <CoolHand> I had a yr of German in high school.. wish I had taken more. I really enjoyed it as a language.. much more fun that espanol..
[13:39:13] <CoolHand> s/that/than
[13:39:44] <janrinok> depends on usefulness I suppose. You have more spanish speakers than German speakers I would imagine
[13:40:20] <CoolHand> indeed... but I have a motorcycle from BMW Motorrad... :0
[13:40:21] <CoolHand> :)
[13:40:55] <janrinok> well, your 1 years study might help with reading the servicing manual :)
[13:42:04] <CoolHand> yeah... back when I was an industrial electrician, it wasn't uncommon to run across german equipment.. and now, there is always open-source stuff with a lot of german influence (KDE, Sidux/aptosid, others)
[13:42:20] <CoolHand> so, handy in those cases also
[13:42:39] <janrinok> not as bad as the japanese 'manuals' that you used to get a decade or two ago
[13:42:56] <janrinok> neither one language or the other
[13:43:18] <CoolHand> haha, yeah... still see some chinese ones like that occasionally
[18:31:38] <cmn32480|workin> DAMNIT
[18:32:00] <cmn32480|workin> these bastards are reimaging all the fucking machines that I jsut installed the card printers on.
[18:32:09] <cmn32480|workin> 2 days of work wastedd
[18:32:16] <janrinok> what on earth for?
[18:32:24] <cmn32480|workin> stupidity probably
[18:32:51] <janrinok> time for a good slapping?
[18:33:05] <cmn32480|workin> thinking ab out telling them to FO and going home
[18:33:23] <janrinok> tempting - and I don't suppose anyone would blame you.
[18:33:29] <cmn32480|workin> probably not
[18:33:36] <paulej72> lubbaad yyaj
[18:33:38] <janrinok> will they have to pay for your time again
[18:33:53] <janrinok> hi paulej72
[18:34:18] <cmn32480|workin> oh yes
[18:34:25] <cmn32480|workin> they will be getting a bilor this
[18:34:31] <paulej72> hi
[18:34:31] <cmn32480|workin> *bill for
[18:34:32] <Subsentient> Eeeeeeuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeoooooooooggghhhhh!
[18:34:39] <janrinok> hi Subsentient
[18:34:43] <cmn32480|workin> pretty much subsentient
[18:34:47] <paulej72> work has been crazy busy for me this weel
[18:34:49] <paulej72> k
[18:35:00] <janrinok> I can tell, this place is dead most of the time
[18:35:14] * Subsentient squeals like a retard
[18:37:04] <janrinok> I have that effect on some people
[18:40:59] <paulej72> I am trying to see how many computers I can get reimaged and out the door this week. So far I got 3 deployed, and have 7 that are in the process of getting setup.
[18:41:37] <janrinok> just sort of spring cleaning, or are they queuing up to get them?
[18:45:19] <janrinok> cmn32480|workin: have you hit anybody yet?
[18:45:28] <cmn32480|workin> thinkinig about it
[18:45:32] <cmn32480|workin> thinking hard about it
[18:46:11] <paulej72> one of the faculty moved to Texas A&M. I told him it was not worth packing up his computational computers and hulling to TX. Most were too old to make it worth while. So I have been deploying the old equipment to other labs to replace even older equipment
[18:46:44] <janrinok> and what happens to the 'even older equipment' - dumpster?
[18:46:56] <cmn32480|workin> ah.... fuck me.
[18:47:14] <janrinok> sit down cmn32480|workin breathe deeply, chill
[18:47:38] <cmn32480|workin> "you need to test EVERY anntenna that you installed in the whole hospital"
[18:47:46] <cmn32480|workin> all 876 of them
[18:48:19] <cmn32480|workin> fuck me
[18:48:37] <janrinok> get your suitcase packed and go back to the sensible people and explain
[18:48:48] <paulej72> even older equipment will be saved if new enough, but most goes to the recyclers
[18:49:02] <janrinok> good - as long as it is not wasted
[18:49:42] <cmn32480|workin> there are no sensible people left
[18:49:50] <janrinok> at what age do you tend to write things off paulej72 ?
[18:49:57] <janrinok> cmn32480|workin: you are still here
[18:50:00] <paulej72> some of them have bad motherboards with blown caps. others are power supply doners. I usually pull the drives and memory before sending them to recycleing
[18:50:22] <cmn32480|workin> janrinok - even here... there are no sensible people left.
[18:50:28] <cmn32480|workin> we are all f**king nuts!
[18:50:34] <janrinok> lol
[18:55:41] <paulej72> let see I have benn trying to get rid of my Dell Optiplex GX260s from around 2002 up to the GX620s from 2006. The 745s (2007) are ok, but anything from a 755 (2008) and up is good
[18:59:24] <paulej72> so I have been deploying 6 and 7 year old machines to replace even older equipment.
[19:02:39] <paulej72> also a goal is to get rid of Windows XP
[19:03:00] <janrinok> I can understand - I bet you are looking forward to Win-10 :)
[19:03:20] <paulej72> yeah, next year
[19:03:31] <paulej72> I am still deploying Win 7
[19:03:36] <janrinok> stick with it!
[19:03:48] <paulej72> stay away from Win 8.
[19:06:56] <cmn32480|workin> time to get drinkin
[19:07:31] <janrinok> if I didn't feel a bit off colour, I would join you
[19:07:51] <cmn32480|workin> I'm stilla t work. but I think it might be time
[19:08:16] <janrinok> its always beer o'clock somewhere - have one for me, it's mid-evening here
[19:08:30] <paulej72> isn't always time to drink at work?
[19:08:47] <janrinok> I'd agree with that
[19:08:54] <cmn32480|workin> surefeels that way lately paulej72
[19:13:34] <paulej72> I think I am taking a short break
[19:13:47] <janrinok> a couple of days, maybe?
[19:14:10] <cmn32480|workin> take mine too paulej72. you deserve it
[19:15:00] <janrinok> cmn32480|workin: I don't think that you should be giving your breaks away - J will be a bit miffed if you do
[19:15:18] <cmn32480|workin> mine ar eonly 15min long
[19:15:24] <cmn32480|workin> or less
[19:15:37] <janrinok> fair 'nough
[19:17:32] <janrinok> time for me to go. Cmn, hope the rest of the day goes better for you, paulej72 likewise, and both of you take it easy.
[19:17:46] <cmn32480|workin> rest easy janrinok
[19:17:50] <cmn32480|workin> my best to S
[19:17:56] <janrinok> thx - willdo
[19:18:00] <cmn32480|workin> feel better, would you?
[19:18:27] <cmn32480|workin> I gotta sign off too. never get anything done with this running.
[19:18:42] <janrinok> yeah, I don't particularly like watching other people work
[19:18:48] <janrinok> bye
