[00:05:16] <Bytram> system 503'd while I wasa trying to ssave a story; got 3 copies of the same story in the queue.
[00:05:39] <Bytram> I'm gonna mark two of 'em non-display, then delete them after I'm sure I still have a good copy to run with!
[00:06:03] <takyon> wow
[00:07:07] * Bytram is tempted to make the 'real' story release at 4:04 !! ;)
[00:07:30] <Bytram> good copy set to release at 4;40
[00:08:49] <Bytram> okay, clicked 'delete' on both of the dupe stories.
[00:09:21] <Bytram> change the display time to "25:00:00" on the first dupe
[00:09:27] <Bytram> bye bye!
[00:09:49] <Bytram> ditto on the second dupe
[00:10:00] <Bytram> and now the story queue is clean again.
[00:10:01] <Bytram> =)
[00:10:48] <takyon> wait, delete is a thing?
[00:12:25] <Bytram> in the story list, it changes the story title from "this is the title" to "<strike>this is the title</strike>"; or at least it looks that way
[00:12:46] <Bytram> I didn't even know it was there, tbh
[00:13:15] <Bytram> it *might*, also, make the story NOT 'display' (i.e. uncheck the Display checkbox) but I had already done that, so don't really know.
[02:49:39] <takyon> lol
[02:57:21] <cmn32480> I beleive story delete is a superadmin privilege
[02:58:17] <cmn32480> Bytram !!
[02:58:20] <cmn32480> takyon !!
[02:58:55] <Bytram> ole hola oy vey hey hey hey!
[02:59:04] <Bytram> cmn32480: what's up?
[02:59:07] <cmn32480> my my my somebody is up late!
[02:59:23] <cmn32480> you party animal
[02:59:26] <cmn32480> up late on IRC
[02:59:36] <cmn32480> obviously, I too am a prty animal
[02:59:49] <Bytram> I'm just partly an animal
[03:00:11] <cmn32480> how's life treating you Bytram?
[03:00:17] <takyon> until you've been drunk on IRC, you aren't a party animal
[03:00:23] <cmn32480> good? bad? fair to middlin?
[03:00:27] <takyon> we both posted a story in the samish timeslot
[03:00:53] <cmn32480> I shall pus the drone drop to 16:12
[03:00:55] <Bytram> okay, all in all. got the new lappy set up as my primary system now. still skinning knuckles on settings here and there, but mostly going smoothly! =)
[03:01:06] <takyon> oh god, it links to kancho
[03:01:06] <cmn32480> I'm workgin throhg the seconds
[03:01:16] <cmn32480> excellent
[03:01:23] <cmn32480> glad to hear she is treating you good
[03:01:58] <takyon> I hope skylake on mobile is good enough to justify a laptop purchase
[03:02:21] <cmn32480> I have this theory on that...
[03:03:08] <cmn32480> if it is good enough to make a splash, and somebody further down the food chain needs a new laptop, they can have mine, and I will take on the burden of the new hardware testing for the team
[03:03:24] <takyon> I'm looking for 30% more battery life, 10-50% GPU improvement over broadwell, and maybe the wireless charging they are trying to push
[03:03:37] <cmn32480> that'd be a splash
[03:03:56] <takyon> look in the queue to see the skylake desktop explanation
[03:04:19] <takyon> maybe I'll refine that into a postable story. haven't read anything about it since the anandtech article
[03:14:42] <Bytram> I've been looking at this itanium article. I wonder how much interest there'd be in it?
[03:15:04] <takyon> we ave a lot of nerds
[03:15:10] <takyon> although it is the weekend
[03:15:37] <takyon> It seems like something that should be run
[03:17:23] <Bytram> I pulled down all the linked stories, extracted the actual titles, and have now pasted them into the links
[03:17:48] <takyon> "fastest ever neutrino"
[03:17:57] <takyon> ayyyy lmao
[03:19:46] <takyon> wait I guess it's true
[03:22:27] <Bytram> hey guys, I'm putting the IA64 story in the evening (EDT) and leaving a gap to fill in with 'more interesting' stories.
[03:22:28] <cmn32480> I like the adjust emtns you guys made to the sub I tossed in for more eds and subs Bytram
[03:28:46] <Bytram> cmn32480: happy to help
[03:29:06] <cmn32480> you or mcbp decide when/if we ought to run it?
[03:29:19] <Bytram> I'm thinking that, maybe, just an e-mail to all editors (past AND present) to ask for some assistance, might be helpful?
[03:29:38] <Bytram> learning curve would be a lot shorter, for one.
[03:29:52] <cmn32480> true
[03:30:11] <Bytram> even if we only get a couple bites, and they each post a couple stories, that would still be a big help at very little aditional load on us
[03:30:45] <cmn32480> agreed
[03:30:52] <cmn32480> not sure how many are evens till around....
[03:30:59] <Bytram> ok, my brain is nearly as tired as the rest of my is. I hope you all have a good night. I'm working sat & sun, but I'll pop in as I can.
[03:31:10] <cmn32480> ~g'night Bytram
[03:31:11] * exec insatiably tosses a pair of used panties full of Debian to Bytram
[03:31:13] <cmn32480> safe weekend
[03:31:25] <Bytram> there's a mailing list, but I'm not exactly sure of the name of it.
[03:31:42] <cmn32480> it was updated to be just the active eds.
[03:31:43] <Bytram> editorial@soylentnews.org or something like that.
[03:31:48] <Bytram> oh.
[03:31:52] <Bytram> doh!
[03:31:55] <Bytram> nvm
[03:31:55] <cmn32480> basically
[03:32:12] <Bytram> in THAT case... ciao for now!
[03:32:25] <cmn32480> pleasant dreams
[03:34:12] <Bytram> and the same to you!

[14:40:56] <janrinok> cmn23480: !!
[14:41:14] <cmn23480> 8 seconds... you are imrpoving!
[14:41:21] <janrinok> you've changed your number!
[14:41:22] <cmn23480> janrinok !!
[14:41:32] <cmn23480> &%$*%*ing typos
[14:41:44] <janrinok> how's things?
[14:41:46] cmn23480 is now known as cmn32480
[14:41:56] <cmn32480> other than not being able to sell my own name?
[14:42:06] <janrinok> well, ignoring that...
[14:42:12] <cmn32480> :-)
[14:42:34] <cmn32480> NOLA is going nuclear... it's awesome
[14:42:57] <cmn32480> got that message a few mints ago
[14:43:03] <cmn32480> *minuets
[14:43:12] <janrinok> you're fired? they've surrendered?
[14:43:23] <cmn32480> I wish
[14:43:29] <cmn32480> and noo
[14:43:48] <cmn32480> they want a 100% functional system by 7AM Monday
[14:44:04] <cmn32480> and they have chagned how they want the data... again
[14:44:12] <janrinok> ah, they're smoking something...
[14:44:18] <cmn32480> back to the original SFTP
[14:44:23] <cmn32480> good thing I keep backups
[14:45:15] <janrinok> but by Mon AM?
[14:45:23] <cmn32480> yup
[14:45:35] <cmn32480> but there are readers that aren't showing on the network
[14:45:42] <cmn32480> some used to and dissappeared
[14:45:50] <cmn32480> some have never shown up
[14:46:10] <janrinok> any ideas why not?
[14:46:35] <cmn32480> porbably becaseu they stated teht they are seeing a 20% failure rate in their low voltage cables
[14:46:53] <cmn32480> or the idiots never patched them from the panel to the switch
[14:47:19] <janrinok> so that is their fault and not your companies?
[14:47:26] <cmn32480> absolutely
[14:47:28] <janrinok> company's
[14:47:52] <cmn32480> I do not manage (nor do I want to mangage) their network
[14:47:59] <janrinok> :)
[14:48:37] <janrinok> so your boss has to tell them that you would also like a 100% functional system by 7AM Monday!
[14:49:01] <cmn32480> I have every intent to send precisely that email.
[14:49:11] <janrinok> are you back in work?
[14:49:30] <cmn32480> but I am looking for the one from 2 weeks ago that I sent that told them all the readers that weren't reachable on the network.
[14:49:36] <cmn32480> no I'm at my home office
[14:49:47] <cmn32480> coffee is cooking
[14:50:00] <janrinok> sounds (and probably smells) good
[14:50:24] <cmn32480> I actaully don't like the smell of brewing coffee
[14:50:29] <cmn32480> don't know why
[14:50:32] <cmn32480> ;ove the taste
[14:50:51] <janrinok> even I - a lowly tea drinker - love the smell of coffee brewing
[14:51:06] <cmn32480> can't explain it
[14:51:19] <cmn32480> and there is nothign wrong with tea
[14:51:30] <cmn32480> it just makes you a little weird is all
[14:51:56] <janrinok> oh, thanks, I think I feel better for that ;)
[14:52:23] <cmn32480> it si only a little weird
[14:52:25] * janrinok wonders - a little weird 'what'...?
[14:52:50] <cmn32480> a little weird Brit?
[14:52:55] <cmn32480> or a weird little Brit
[14:52:58] <janrinok> I can live with that
[14:52:59] <cmn32480> I don't know
[14:53:04] <cmn32480> doesn't really matter
[14:53:12] <janrinok> how's the family
[14:53:16] <janrinok> ?
[14:53:21] <cmn32480> J is sleeping still
[14:53:32] <cmn32480> kids are in the basement being surprisingly quiet
[14:53:50] <janrinok> you really should untie them now for the rest of the day
[14:54:27] <cmn32480> maybe after I have coffee
[14:54:51] <janrinok> fair enough
[14:55:26] <janrinok> thx for the 2nd on the BitCoin story - I filled the list out a bit
[14:56:08] <cmn32480> yeah
[14:56:14] <cmn32480> I did a bunch last night too
[14:56:19] <cmn32480> 2nds I mean
[14:56:22] <cmn32480> posted a few
[14:56:39] <janrinok> marty and yourself did a good job filling the list, but marty left a few gaps on purpose
[14:56:51] <cmn32480> Bytram was tossing stuff in the queue like it was his job, and I missed the gaps
[14:57:43] <janrinok> he said he was going to leave some gaps for 'more interesting' stories. I'm not sure if mine qualify, but I'll leave them there for now.
[14:57:44] <janrinok> brb
[14:57:54] <cmn32480> coffee beep!
[14:59:04] <cmn32480> coffee++
[14:59:04] <Bender> karma - coffee: 16
[15:07:07] <janrinok> how's the coffee?
[15:07:16] <cmn32480> blessed
[15:07:21] <cmn32480> neeeded
[15:07:27] <cmn32480> half gone already
[15:07:31] <janrinok> lol
[15:07:38] <janrinok> more to follow I suppose
[15:07:46] <cmn32480> duh?
[15:08:55] <cmn32480> so what are your thoughts on the story in the queue that I tossed up regarding eds and subs
[15:09:14] <janrinok> I think it's fine
[15:09:33] <cmn32480> that sounds like the answer I get from my wife.
[15:09:36] <cmn32480> it's fine
[15:09:40] -!- Azrael has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[15:09:49] <cmn32480> usually when she doens't like somethign I have done or cooked
[15:09:59] -!- Azrael [Azrael!~Az@Soylent/Staff/Editor/Azrael] has joined #editorial
[15:09:59] -!- mode/#editorial [+v Azrael] by SkyNet
[15:10:11] <janrinok> I'm am very happy with it, I hope it has the desired effect, and I congratulate you on a fine piece of prose.
[15:11:55] <cmn32480> that was heavily edited by mrcbp and marty
[15:12:09] <cmn32480> check the queued version vs the original sub
[15:12:29] <cmn32480> they filled it out very nicely
[15:13:04] <janrinok> just make sure that we follow the rules - mrcoolbp should formally nominate those who he believes are suitable to act as 'trainers'. Otherwise we can fall into the poo-trap of any editor thinking he is also a qualified trainer.
[15:13:15] <janrinok> those whom*
[15:13:45] <cmn32480> wait... we have procedures?
[15:13:45] <janrinok> I don't see any problems with our current bunch anyway, but it is specified in the rules
[15:13:50] <cmn32480> when did that happen?
[15:14:00] <janrinok> they've always been in the wiki :)
[15:14:09] <cmn32480> wait... we have a wiki?
[15:14:13] <cmn32480> when did that happen?
[15:14:43] <janrinok> we had several meetings to decide what should go in and what shouldn't, then they wanted them typing up by 'yesterday' and a spent about a week getting our documentation ready
[15:14:59] * janrinok recognises that cmn32480 is being lighthearted
[15:15:14] <janrinok> I spent*
[15:15:34] <cmn32480> selection and training is up to you and mrcoolbp. Any help i can give in making that happen will be gladly tossed over the fence
[15:15:41] <janrinok> brb - nurse has arrived
[15:15:47] <cmn32480> understood
[15:23:05] <janrinok> well, unless the new guys get trained in this coming week, I'm going to be on my travels
[15:23:27] <cmn32480> I know
[15:23:28] <cmn32480> me too
[15:23:45] <cmn32480> I'll have morngins and evenings to feed the queue, and will do what I can
[15:23:53] <janrinok> understood
[15:24:19] <janrinok> I'm not sure how much, if at all, I will be able to contribute between the 18 Aug and 3 Sep
[15:24:19] <cmn32480> you will be out of pocket for the whole holiday, as I understand things, unless yo find a spare computer laying around
[15:24:37] <cmn32480> /me reads backscroll!
[15:24:41] * cmn32480 reads backscroll!
[15:24:56] <janrinok> correct
[15:25:06] <cmn32480> and that is a well deserved break to spend time with your family and friends
[15:25:20] <cmn32480> you, sir, have far beyond earned the time off
[15:25:37] <cmn32480> think it'll be a paid vacation?
[15:26:03] <cmn32480> I mean, I don't THINK they'd dock your editors pay for taking a little well deserved time off... do you?
[15:27:32] <janrinok> I hope I at least get paid full-time during my holiday - we ought to get extra but I will accept the norm
[15:28:03] <janrinok> got to go again - start getting a meal ready. S is now in bed for the evening.
[15:28:09] <cmn32480> okie
[15:28:16] <janrinok> bb later
[15:28:19] <cmn32480> I'll be here worink on NOla for the next couple hours
