[05:58:37] <mrcoolbp> ALL: I set cmn32480's story for non-display and threw it in the queue for further refinement

[10:57:47] <Bytram> hi guys! Just a heads up that I'll hopefully soon be able to help out with editorial duties again.
[10:58:00] <Bytram> I pushed out a story or two last night and did a bunch of 2nding
[10:58:19] <Bytram> got most of the stuff I need installed on the new lappy
[10:58:41] <Bytram> last biggie ahead of me is PuTTY -- what a 'different' beast that is!
[10:59:32] <Bytram> when that's done, I'm optimistic that'll just be fine-tuning ahead of me, along with the occasional knuckle-whack when I realize I forgot something else!
[10:59:37] <Bytram> =)
[11:23:50] cmn32480|sleepin is now known as cmn32480
[11:53:57] <cmn32480> Bytram
[11:54:17] <Bytram> hola
[11:54:33] <cmn32480> the Linux VM that I am building is specifically so that we can have Arthur running while janrinok is on vacation
[11:55:07] <Bytram> got it.
[11:55:20] * Bytram never did see that movie ;)
[11:55:22] <cmn32480> but a littl efurther practice never hurt
[11:55:33] <cmn32480> which movie?
[11:55:42] <Bytram> Arthur
[11:55:58] <cmn32480> me neither
[11:56:31] <cmn32480> how si putty a different beast?
[11:57:19] <cmn32480> zz_janrinok - got me a shiny new Ubuntu 14.04.2LTS VM just waiting for Arthur
[11:57:31] <cmn32480> Bytram - You have questions about Putty?
[11:57:33] <Bytram> its UI is almost, but not totally unlike warm tea
[11:57:41] <Bytram> just getting it set up to talk to SN
[11:57:55] <cmn32480> simple? easy? informational instead of flashy?
[11:58:00] <Bytram> I have an install on XP that works (well, worked. haven't tried in a while)
[11:58:17] <cmn32480> all the putty settings are in the registry, I believe.
[11:58:26] <Bytram> it is what I was pointed at when I looked to get connected to Boron
[11:58:35] <Bytram> nodnod
[11:58:55] <cmn32480> http://jakub.kotrla.net
[11:58:59] <Bytram> I have THAT in my logs somewhere; Nathan something something, IIRC

[11:59:45] <cmn32480> this one is the export to transfer the settigns between files
[11:59:55] <cmn32480> *between PCs
[12:00:08] <Bytram> nice! /me clicks again!
[12:00:32] <cmn32480> me thinks the second one is what you are looking for
[12:00:54] <Bytram> looks like it
[12:01:02] <cmn32480> seems VERY easy
[12:01:17] <Bytram> what he forgot to include was to export your settings from the 'new' computer before you import the settings from the 'old' one.
[12:01:19] <Bytram> :/
[12:01:29] <cmn32480> one suggestion, as you are going from XP to win 7, put a session in Win 7 and make suer that the keys ar the same.
[12:01:50] <Bytram> IIRC, there were actually two places in registry where settings are stored
[12:02:01] <Bytram> 'put a session in win 7'??
[12:02:13] <Bytram> yeah, I have the keys on XP
[12:02:19] <Bytram> and my backup! =)
[12:02:22] <Bytram> e:
[12:02:28] <Bytram> oops. wrong window!
[12:02:31] <cmn32480> create a session in the Win 7 install
[12:03:30] <cmn32480> and then check the registry to make sure putty is putting thins in the same place
[12:03:38] <Bytram> k, I'm gonna back things up before I dig myself into a hole
[12:03:43] <Bytram> ah. got it
[12:04:36] <cmn32480> I've looked at 3 or four article, and nobody mentions anythign about changing OS
[12:04:42] <cmn32480> but I'd think we better safe tehn sorry'
[12:04:55] * Bytram launches regedit & searches for Simon Tatham
[12:05:38] <Bytram> that's for sure!

[12:08:17] <Bytram> Keep looking! Nothing worthwhile comes easy! Right?
[12:08:25] <cmn32480> exactly
[12:10:06] <Bytram> oh. Nice. :/ There's a new version of PuTTY out:
[12:10:06] <Bytram> Latest news
[12:10:07] <Bytram> 2015-07-25 PuTTY 0.65 released, containing bug fixes
[12:10:07] <Bytram> PuTTY 0.65, released today, fixes the Vista bug where the configuration dialog became invisible, and a few other bugs, large and small.
[12:10:25] * Bytram goes back to regedit
[12:13:25] <Bytram> oh joy. Looks like I really should use the newer release...
[12:13:25] <Bytram> 2015-02-28 PuTTY 0.64 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
[12:13:26] <Bytram> PuTTY 0.64, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.63 and before: private-key-not-wiped-2. Also diffie-hellman-range-check has been argued to be a security hole. In addition to these and other less critical bug fixes, 0.64 also supports the major new feature of sharing an SSH connection between multiple instances of PuTTY and its tools, and a command-line and config option to specify the expected host key(s).
[12:13:42] * Bytram just installed PuTYY 0.63 :/
[12:19:21] <cmn32480> I'm safe.... I'm on 0.61
[12:19:40] <cmn32480> installed is such a misnomer on Putty
[12:19:47] <cmn32480> it is just the exe
[12:23:00] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:23:41] <cmn32480> I hate it when people tell me the internet is slow
[12:23:42] <Bytram> sry, was reading email; just found out an uncle was in hospital for 4 days and is now being released to a rehab... also just learned that he has alzheimers
[12:23:51] <Bytram> major bummer
[12:23:52] <cmn32480> oh my
[12:23:59] <cmn32480> sorry to hear that Bytram
[12:24:03] <Bytram> thanks
[12:24:30] <Bytram> we were not close; but he was always someone that was 'just there' -- I nkew I could go to him if I had to
[12:24:46] <cmn32480> understood
[12:25:02] <Bytram> come to think of it, prolly haven't seen him in years
[12:25:09] <Bytram> where DOES the time go?
[12:25:14] <cmn32480> into the past
[12:25:25] <cmn32480> and quite quickly it seems
[12:26:21] <Bytram> the older I get the faster it goes and the slower I go -- maybe they're related?
[12:26:25] <Bytram> :/
[12:26:41] <cmn32480> relativity?
[12:26:52] <cmn32480> no that goes the other way
[12:26:58] <cmn32480> the faster you go, the slower time goes
[12:27:19] <Bytram> well, when I was 3 1/2 years old, the '1/2' was a significant fraction of my age. Now, it's closer to a rounding error!
[12:27:45] <Bytram> so, any passing day is a much smaller percentage of my life's experiences.
[12:27:47] <cmn32480> sadly the 3 is becoming closer to a rounding error
[12:27:59] <Bytram> arg. yeah, you gots that right
[12:28:45] <Bytram> I woke up at 0500 and couldn't get back to sleep... now it's catching up with me.
[12:29:08] <cmn32480> nap time?
[12:29:09] <Bytram> thnk I'm gonna take a break
[12:29:14] <Bytram> nod nod nodding off
[12:29:16] <Bytram> =)
[12:29:20] <cmn32480> lol
[12:29:25] <cmn32480> get soem sleep Bytram
[12:29:30] <cmn32480> it's good for you
[12:29:41] <Bytram> btw, once I get putty setup, that's the last of the major things I forsee that I need to install on the lappy
[12:29:52] <Bytram> then I can spend some more time helping with stories and testing.
[12:29:53] <cmn32480> excellent
[12:29:59] <Bytram> sure is!
[12:30:16] <cmn32480> we are just runnign short handed at this moment, adn in a couple weeks it will get a bit worse
[12:30:25] <cmn32480> hence my posting
[12:30:52] <Bytram> yeah, I saw the story in the queue but haven't looked at it yet... many thanks for ALL the work you've put in getting stories out there!!!!!!!!!!!
[12:31:11] <Bytram> I 2nd-edited a bunch of stories yesterday and pushed out a couple, too.
[12:31:19] <Bytram> hard to find a balance, yanno?
[12:31:28] <cmn32480> yes.
[12:31:53] <Bytram> and how are things for you? calmed down any? or still traveling
[12:31:53] <cmn32480> my bigger concern is that we are pretty much runnign on 4 eds at this point
[12:32:04] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:32:12] <cmn32480> no travel till the end of the month, then who knows
[12:32:23] <Bytram> wow! GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!
[12:32:25] <cmn32480> unless you count vacation as travel
[12:32:31] <Bytram> and for your family, too!
[12:32:41] <cmn32480> yes definitely good for them
[12:32:52] <cmn32480> have a project that requires me to be here
[12:32:57] <cmn32480> so no travel
[12:33:04] <cmn32480> and I need the break from airplanes
[12:33:04] <Bytram> yay!!!!
[12:33:12] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:33:34] <Bytram> I've done a fair amount of travel on two different years, but nothing like what I've seen you do!
[12:33:46] <cmn32480> this year has been a lot
[12:33:53] <cmn32480> far more than in the apst
[12:34:27] <Bytram> early 90's had me going back and forth to San Jose for about 9 months or so; out for 2-3 weeks, back for 1-2 weeks; out for 2-3 weeks; etc.
[12:34:38] <cmn32480> ick
[12:34:43] <Bytram> I bet you got a bunch miles!
[12:35:02] <cmn32480> I do... and if things keep up, I'll get a companion pass on Southwest
[12:35:13] <cmn32480> for all of next year
[12:35:46] <Bytram> and, in 97 was working on a project for a startup (3 guys, including me) doing a project for Formula 1 -- they were starting up a digital broadcast channel; 7 round-trips to europe
[12:35:56] <Bytram> or maybe 8? hard to remember
[12:36:04] <Bytram> very nice!
[12:36:15] <Bytram> assuming you can stand to see the inside of a plane again!
[12:36:18] <cmn32480> long as you got to take some time and enjoy Europe...
[12:36:50] <Bytram> SOP: added a day at the end of the trip for personal sight-seeing, etc. just had to pay for the extra night at the hotel on our own tab.
[12:37:11] <Bytram> I took a pay cut compared to my normal rate, but the memories and experiences were WELL worth it!
[12:37:13] <cmn32480> great way to get there
[12:37:16] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:37:40] <cmn32480> you add the airfare to your compensation package, and it makes a difference
[12:37:50] <cmn32480> weren't you gonna take a nap?
[12:37:52] <Bytram> and, having a press pass, I could go pretty much *anywhere* at the TOP race courses in the world.
[12:38:01] <cmn32480> THAT is cool
[12:38:19] <Bytram> I even took a (low-speed) lab around the Burburgring.
[12:38:23] <Bytram> (sp?)
[12:38:29] <Bytram> s/lab/lap/
[12:38:35] <Bytram> ugh.
[12:38:44] <Bytram> Nurburgring
[12:38:47] <cmn32480> in a Formula 1 car?
[12:39:05] <cmn32480> VERY cool
[12:39:51] <Bytram> I *wish*; just a normal rental car. still. not too many people can say they did THAT!
[12:40:04] <Bytram> also, walked down & through pit row in all those venues
[12:40:22] <cmn32480> that has to be pretty neat
[12:40:24] <Bytram> almost knocked over Jackie Stewart once.
[12:40:56] <cmn32480> heheh
[12:41:12] <cmn32480> ack!
[12:41:17] <cmn32480> my coffee cup is empty
[12:41:43] <cmn32480> ok I gotta go AFK for a bit. need to concentrate on this thing for NOLA.
[12:41:55] <Bytram> was walking along pit row and saw a 'pit babe' (sry, that's the term they used over there) heading in the opposite direction, and naturally my eyes followed her. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something. It was the brim of a beret/tam and under it was jackie. Almost ran into him!
[12:41:57] <cmn32480> if I can get this knocked out, This project may be complete
[12:42:02] <Bytram> YAY!
[12:42:09] <Bytram> best of luck to ya, my friend
[12:42:14] <cmn32480> thanks BYtram
[12:42:18] <Bytram> time for me to take a break, too.
[12:42:18] <cmn32480> go catch that nap
[12:42:20] <Bytram> c ya l8r

[14:17:35] -!- LaminatorX [LaminatorX!~4472220d@15-066-74-22.static.gwnt.ga.charter.com] has joined #editorial
[14:17:47] <LaminatorX> Hi all.
[14:18:00] <janrinok> Lammy! good to hear from you
[14:18:16] <janrinok> how's things?
[14:18:43] <LaminatorX> Pretty good, Yourself?
[14:19:52] <janrinok> not too bad - looking forward to a break in a week or 2. Going back to UK for my daughter's wedding!
[14:20:09] <LaminatorX> How exciting, congratulations.
[14:20:36] <janrinok> I can take no credit - well perhaps 40'ish years ago, but not now :)
[14:21:31] <janrinok> But it should be a good time - unfortunately S cannot travel so I have her P in Laws coming to look after her
[14:22:06] <LaminatorX> Makes sense, I'm glad you were able to work something out.
[14:22:36] <janrinok> and I need a break. Up to my usual tricks of doing too much again - some things never change :)
[14:23:11] <janrinok> how's your family?
[14:23:56] <LaminatorX> The band's been picking up some momentum lately, getting invites to things here and there rather than having to scrape for gigs so much. That's a refreshing change. We've even contacted Harper-Collins/The Tolkien Estate about licensing the lyrics to release some recordings.
[14:24:35] <janrinok> that's great news - you'll soon be rich and famous, well, famous anyway
[14:24:56] <LaminatorX> Family's great. I'm going to take a long lunch today to see the girls's swim-camp recital? demonstration? finale? Whatever they call it where we watch all the kids show what they've learned in the pool.
[14:26:02] <janrinok> er, not sure what that is called, but hope you enjoy yourselves
[14:26:16] <LaminatorX> We recorded a few Public Domain numbers while we were cutting our Tolkien demos too, seing as we were already gathered around the mic: http://lmsb.me
[14:26:23] <exec> └─ 13The Lonely Mountain String Band | ReverbNation - 03https://www.reverbnation.com/thelonelymountainstringband
[14:27:01] <LaminatorX> (.me is for Montenegro, but it makes a fine stand-in for 'Middle-Earth' in our heads.)
[14:27:15] <janrinok> I was just wondering about that
[14:27:56] <janrinok> just listening
[14:29:04] <LaminatorX> 128kb/s mp3 is somewhat rough on acoustic music, but it's what they'll stream for free.
[14:29:07] <janrinok> nice clawhammer
[14:29:26] <LaminatorX> Thanks.
[14:30:50] <janrinok> on Sail Away Ladies, it is an unusual change into the chorus/refrain. I like it
[14:32:28] <janrinok> what is 'Filk'?
[14:35:23] <LaminatorX> Hah, "Filk" is fan jargon for taking an existing song and changing the lyrics up to be about fiction, like if we were to take "Wayfaring Stranger," replace the words in the chorus with Gandalf's about Aragorn ("All that is gold does not glitter, not all who wander are lost..."), and call it "Wayfaring Ranger" that would be a Filk number.
[14:35:53] <janrinok> gotcha - another new word for me
[14:36:47] <LaminatorX> Filk shows are often done at fan conventions. We have a few such numbers, but we mostly just adapt the words straight.
[14:38:37] <janrinok> do you do many conventions?
[14:40:10] <janrinok> give me some titles or CD numbers, and I might just buy a couple when in the UK.
[14:42:01] <LaminatorX> We've done a couple. We've actually just started talking with a Triannual Tolkien festival in central Kentucky called "A Long Expected Party." It seems there's an 18th Century Shaker (an extinct religious movement) village there that's now a museum town, and they ALEP people are allowed to occasionally turn it into The Shire for a long weekend.
[14:42:30] <janrinok> sounds interesting
[14:46:11] <LaminatorX> Indeed so. With it being in Kentucky and us playing string band music, it seems like a natural fit. Hopefully we can make it make sense financially. We're not in this for riches, but don't want to go in the red on something like this either. Travel adds up fast.
[14:47:55] <janrinok> yep - cmn has just put an expenses claim in for over $13K! The middle ground between playing for fun and beer, and being rich and famous, is the hardest part. You've got to make it pay and you have to keep enjoying it, otherwise it becomes a chore. Many bands fall at this stage.
[14:49:12] <LaminatorX> "CMN?"
[14:49:20] <janrinok> cmn32480
[14:49:26] <janrinok> one of us!
[14:49:29] <LaminatorX> Ah.
[14:51:51] <LaminatorX> I'm not sure what Filk artists might have discs available, it's mostly a live phenomenon. Here're some performers though: http://www.filkontario.ca
[14:51:54] <exec> └─ 13HoF Inductees by Name
[14:52:54] <janrinok> that is more than I was expecting tbh
[14:58:55] <janrinok> I can find no similar thing in the UK, I'm not sure that it has reached European shores yet.
[14:59:37] <LaminatorX> I see we're gearing up for another recruiting drive. Ben dropped me a line about it. Good idea with travel impending.
[15:00:20] <janrinok> I'm not sure that we will get much of a response though - there is little activity at present, the community is occupied elsewhere at the moment
[15:01:25] <LaminatorX> I'll be sure to fill in any gaps I see, either way.
[15:02:52] <janrinok> it would be appreciated. takyon's been working hard but is getting frustrated at the effort versus return problem. He, like ourselves, wants to increase both quality and quantity but we lack the submissions or the editors to process it all in a timely fashion
[15:05:37] <LaminatorX> it is a hard lesson.
[15:07:02] <janrinok> we are having to use web scraping bots just to get material to fill the queues - less than ideal but better than an empty queue
[15:08:42] <LaminatorX> I'm uncertain. Scrape-bot gets the job done (nice work there, by the way) but also kind of masks the problem.
[15:09:27] <janrinok> agreed - but we try to hide them in the 'Hold' queue so that most of the community don't know how many or few we have up our sleeves
[15:10:19] <LaminatorX> Sure.
[15:10:47] <janrinok> I fear that we have lost a good number of our community over the last 6 months, getting them back will be hard
[15:20:00] <LaminatorX> I've been somewhat inconstant myself.
[15:20:30] <janrinok> that sounds like something you should mention to your doctor, oh, sorry, I misread that...
[15:21:32] <LaminatorX> Oh no problems there, 7:30 each morning like clockwork. Of course, I don't wake up until 9.
[15:21:40] <janrinok> lol
[15:21:55] <janrinok> an old one but a good 'un
[15:23:14] <LaminatorX> There's something to be said for the classics.
[15:23:44] <janrinok> I think most men of 'our' age have used that line at some time...
[15:28:01] <janrinok> got to go get a meal ready - back in an hour or two. Have a good one Lam, might see you later or next time you are on. All the best to you and yours.
[15:28:13] janrinok is now known as janrinok_afk
[15:30:29] <LaminatorX> Come to think of it, my first exposure to it was from a British source. There was a show when I was a kid called Turkey Television that was just a bunch of silly short pieces from lots of different sources strung together. That one in particular was one of a series of a hospital pieces that seemed to be from a 70's (judging by the haircuts and the video quality) UK comedy program.
[15:39:18] <cmn32480> sorry giot hung up in a meeting
[15:43:52] <LaminatorX> No need to apologize. Jan was just talking me about your mighty travel expense.
[15:44:08] <cmn32480> yeah... CFO 'bout passed out.
[15:45:03] <cmn32480> that si what happens when people want you someplace tomorrow. Flights are expensive!
[15:47:07] <LaminatorX> My band is contemplating some road shows. It rapidly becomes a case of "Can we not loose money on this gig?"
[15:49:16] <cmn32480> I know that feeling. We are in the business of travel adn given the services we provide, we get to bill the custoemr for all the expenses
[15:49:33] <cmn32480> Bands generally don't have that option.
[15:54:14] <LaminatorX> Yeah, we're not big enough to get a gaurantee large enough to be sure to cover travel expenses, but we're hitting the point where playing more local shows will dilute turnout.
[15:54:57] <cmn32480> damned if you do, and damned if you don't....
[15:56:03] <LaminatorX> The answer seems to be, "Where can we play within half-a-day's drive where we can also crash with friends or family?" I'm OK with that.
[16:01:29] <cmn32480> that makes sense... but still....
[16:01:46] <LaminatorX> Not ideal, no.
[16:01:48] <cmn32480> loving what you do makes it that much more fulfilling
[16:02:02] <cmn32480> despite the trials and tribulations of getting there

[17:55:52] <cmn32480> girl grabs spare phone from the back room, plugs it in at her desk adn compalins that it doesn't ahve her phone number on it.
[17:56:01] <LaminatorX> I've been and returned. Both children entered and returned from the waters without drowning.

[17:56:46] <janrinok> cmn32480: some of the people that you employ are not that bright
[17:57:00] <cmn32480> she is in Customer service
[17:57:02] <LaminatorX> No thanks, any more and we'd need a second box.
[17:57:09] <cmn32480> rats
[17:58:26] <janrinok> cmn32480: you didn't think that he'd fall for that one, did you?
[17:58:46] <cmn32480> no.. but I held out this little sliver of hope that he dashed on the rocks
[17:59:04] <janrinok> cmn32480: how is she meant to help the customers if she isn't even safe to own a telephone
[17:59:22] <cmn32480> email
[17:59:29] <cmn32480> I think she knows how to use spell check
[17:59:37] <LaminatorX> I don't dash so often as I used to, thanks to an old injury.
[17:59:54] <cmn32480> most likely, she thoguht that it woudl be configured based on the port she plugged in to like the old digital phones
[18:17:51] <janrinok> Bytram: you on here?
