[16:58:52] cmn32480|goin_crazy is now known as cmn32480
[16:59:02] <cmn32480> submitted $13k last night
[16:59:14] <janrinok_afk> I had a good laugh when back-reading
[16:59:34] <cmn32480> I'm so glad
[17:00:34] <cmn32480> the THUD from teh CFO's offiuce when he saw the amount of the check they are gfonna ahve to cut me was hilarious
[17:00:41] <janrinok_afk> lol
[17:02:30] <janrinok_afk> bb in 15 mins or so
[17:02:37] <cmn32480> me too
[17:15:12] <janrinok_afk> back
[17:23:34] janrinok_afk is now known as janrinok
[17:33:55] <cmn32480> sorry. had to unload a truck
[17:34:04] <janrinok> a full truck?
[17:34:13] <cmn32480> they sent this littel teeny woman driver
[17:34:18] <cmn32480> 8 skids
[17:34:35] <janrinok> what does a woman with 8 skids look like?
[17:34:43] <cmn32480> she was freaking HOT
[17:34:52] * janrinok reckons he's talking american again...
[17:35:58] <cmn32480> best looking truck driver I have ever seen
[17:36:13] <janrinok> I understood that bit - 8 skids?
[17:36:20] <cmn32480> pallets
[17:36:34] <janrinok> ah, separated by a common language again
[17:36:36] <cmn32480> those are things in a warehouse that you use a forklift on
[17:37:01] <cmn32480> it was roughly a half truck
[17:37:27] <janrinok> we just call them pallets - never heard them called skids before
[17:37:45] <cmn32480> they somehow got jammed together... and she didn't weigh ewnough to get tehm unstuck with a pallet jack
[17:37:57] <cmn32480> I had to put som fat into the work
[17:38:08] <janrinok> I bet you impressed her
[17:38:14] <cmn32480> she was pleased
[17:38:26] <cmn32480> too bad I'm married... with children
[17:38:31] <cmn32480> or I'd ahve asked for her number
[17:38:45] <cmn32480> and she had on these painted on shorts....
[17:38:50] <cmn32480> it was excellent
[17:38:50] <janrinok> you will receive your reward at a later time ...
[17:38:57] <cmn32480> yes... I know
[17:39:09] <cmn32480> some days... I want the reward NOW!
[17:39:17] <janrinok> and, no, you can't have an advance up front...
[17:39:20] <cmn32480> and that woudl have very likely been a nice reward
[17:41:30] <janrinok> I hope that takyon is feeling a bit better - it gets to us all from time to time.
[17:41:37] <cmn32480> uh huh
[17:42:54] <janrinok> we also need a lot more submissions but, hell, we can only do the best that we can...
[17:43:34] <cmn32480> the biggest issue is that it is summer. people are off, people are busy as hell.
[17:43:45] <cmn32480> maybe we put out a call for a few additional eds?
[17:43:46] <janrinok> true, but it can get to you at any time
[17:43:54] <cmn32480> absolutely
[17:44:14] <cmn32480> CH is off.... I'm busy as hell
[17:44:36] <cmn32480> you have other life issues that are ever present, takyon has to be busy too
[17:44:40] <janrinok> no harm in trying for more eds, but they come and go, some can't work weekends, some have college exams, some have jobs that don't give them as much time as they would like, we have families, bills to pay, and other things that we have to do.
[17:44:53] <cmn32480> exactly
[17:45:01] <cmn32480> but many hadns make lite work or somethign
[17:46:03] <janrinok> I strongly suspect that we are losing our readership - or at least the one's that made the site what it is. There are fewer subs nowadays, and the content is becoming far less technical and, for me, less interesting
[17:46:18] <cmn32480> I agree
[17:46:32] <cmn32480> Arthur is helping that, but we can't depend on him to be the only submitter
[17:46:56] <janrinok> I don't like pushing out crap stories about social issues or whatever, that is not my bag
[17:47:39] <cmn32480> speaking of Arthur as the only submitter, how are we gonna handle that while you are out of pocket in a few weeks?
[17:48:10] <janrinok> not too sure about that - it is not really ready for release and still needs manual intervention.
[17:48:28] <cmn32480> is that smoethign that you can show me?
[17:48:41] <janrinok> yeah sure - do you run linux at home or win?
[17:48:46] <cmn32480> Windows
[17:48:51] <cmn32480> always Windows...
[17:49:03] <janrinok> OK, I'll do a win version and let you have a play with it
[17:49:05] <cmn32480> BUT I can spin up a linux VM pretty quick
[17:49:56] <janrinok> actually, the VM might be essential - it uses GTK libs for the browser and submitter portion
[17:50:27] <cmn32480> what OS you need? Ubuntu work?
[17:50:45] <janrinok> yeah, but any modern'ish linux will work
[17:51:19] <cmn32480> I _think_ I already have an Ubuntu vm made on my laptop...
[17:51:29] * cmn32480 digs under the covers
[17:51:37] <janrinok> I won't peep
[17:51:42] * cmn32480 comes back up for a shovel
[17:51:55] * cmn32480 comes back for SCUBA gear
[17:52:09] <cmn32480> do you have a decompression chamber? I might need on if I am there too long...
[17:52:12] <janrinok> as long as you 'come back' I don't care what you wear
[17:52:37] * cmn32480 plunges over the side again with a jackhammer in tow
[17:55:40] <janrinok> thx for the 2nds
[17:56:02] <cmn32480> trying..... today (like the rest of the week) has been 1 gigantic clusterfuck
[17:56:24] <janrinok> better than lots of little clusterfucks getting under your feet
[17:56:41] <cmn32480> I have them too....
[17:56:56] <cmn32480> but mostly it is the two big projects that are currently runnign that are going pear shaped
[17:57:49] <janrinok> well, I guess one is NOLA, what's the other?
[17:57:59] <cmn32480> New York State
[17:58:12] <janrinok> NYS is a clusterfuck without your help
[17:58:19] <cmn32480> well yes
[17:58:28] <cmn32480> but our cluster fuck is a specific part of NYS
[17:58:29] <janrinok> see, things look brighter all ready
[17:58:37] <janrinok> already*
[17:58:56] <janrinok> you helping NYS maintain its ch
[17:59:02] <janrinok> chosen standards!
[17:59:08] * cmn32480 comes back up for air after finding his VM
[17:59:46] <cmn32480> now what was the password........
[18:01:05] <cmn32480> f**k.... I didn't put it in my password safe
[18:01:27] <janrinok> what! a 4 letter password and you know the first and last!
[18:01:40] <janrinok> let me guess :)
[18:02:07] * janrinok probably isn't taking this too seriously
[18:03:13] <cmn32480> one sec
[18:03:16] <cmn32480> owner just walked in
[18:24:56] <cmn32480> back
[18:25:03] <janrinok> good or bad?
[18:25:10] <cmn32480> yes
[18:25:14] <janrinok> lol
[18:25:17] <cmn32480> they are workign on additional sapce
[18:25:21] <cmn32480> *space
[18:25:24] <cmn32480> for my dept
[18:25:28] <cmn32480> whcih is good
[18:25:36] <cmn32480> they don't know when it'll happen
[18:25:37] <janrinok> I know what a sapce is when I see it
[18:25:59] <cmn32480> how can you see sapce? isn't it empty by definition?
[18:26:19] * cmn32480 hear the vapor lock happen
[18:26:20] <janrinok> ah, you are thinking of outer space
[18:26:28] <janrinok> or inner space
[18:26:43] <janrinok> but I mean middle-in-betweenish space
[18:26:52] <cmn32480> ahhhhhh
[18:26:56] <cmn32480> got it
[18:27:06] <cmn32480> OK so I need ot build a vm
[18:28:00] <janrinok> don't rush - I've got a few bits which are hard coded (but shouldn't be) so I'll need until weekend to sort it out anyway
[18:28:20] <cmn32480> it'll take me a few days to get what I need done to build it.
[18:28:27] <janrinok> take your time
[18:28:36] * cmn32480 wonders if he is gonna have to go diving agin for the ISO
[18:28:50] <janrinok> I don't start my break until 2 weeks yesterday,
[18:31:38] <cmn32480> I'm out a week from Saturday, but I'll have a decent internet connection.. and plenty of beer
[18:32:12] <janrinok> I look at late this weekend or early next week for something to pass to you
[18:32:23] <cmn32480> sounds like a plan
[18:32:25] <cmn32480> :-)
[18:32:41] <cmn32480> that won't survive first contact... but oh well
[18:32:47] <janrinok> never do
[18:32:56] <cmn32480> I think that was Patton
[18:33:46] <janrinok> I tried telling the enemy my plans in advance hoping that they wouldn't cock them up - it didn't help, in fact, it made matters worse
[18:35:12] <janrinok> that's the problem with enemies - they simply don't help you win
[18:35:33] <janrinok> damned unsporting
[18:37:10] <cmn32480> seriously... how inconsiderate
[18:37:21] <janrinok> exactly!
[18:37:45] <janrinok> I'm not surprised that it started a fight...
[18:41:22] <janrinok> has the brinks-mat wagon rolled up yet with your expenses?
[18:41:54] <cmn32480> nah.. I'll get a check in the mail
[18:41:58] <janrinok> don't forget to buy J a nice pressie
[18:42:31] <cmn32480> not that I believe them when they tell me the check is in the mail.
[18:42:47] <janrinok> along with all those other infamous promises
[18:42:53] <cmn32480> HA!
[18:43:34] <cmn32480> that money goes into my checking account adn goes straight to American Express
[18:44:03] <janrinok> no profit?
[18:45:09] <janrinok> we used to get a minimum daily rate - if we could live for cheaper then the difference was ours. If it cost more, they would make it up
[18:55:12] <cmn32480> no per diem here
[18:55:19] <cmn32480> but I'd exceed it every day anyway
[18:56:43] <janrinok> well, buy her a present anyway :)
[18:57:02] <janrinok> ... then she'll wonder what you have been doing ...
[19:01:08] <janrinok> takyon's just posted a Breaking - It is confirmed that the wing part is from MH370
[19:14:44] <cmn32480> cool
[19:14:59] <cmn32480> sorry trying to avoid the cluster that is the NYS job
[19:15:05] <cmn32480> or at least uncluster it
[19:16:20] <janrinok> uncluster away - be my guest - I've got to go soon anyway. Hope your day isn't too bad, and say hello to any of the guys who pop up later pse
[19:25:56] <janrinok> gtg - bye
