[02:34:07] <cmn32480> damnit
[02:34:16] <cmn32480> I forgot to merge the subs before posting one.
[02:34:29] <cmn32480> anybody know how (other than a copy paste)?
[02:34:59] <cmn32480> is it one of those copy paste, and accept and hide the second one?
[02:42:47] <cmn32480> fixed now... I went with option 2.

[12:17:19] <Bytram> cmn32480: good morning!
[12:17:20] <cmn32480> Bytram !!
[12:17:23] <Bytram> lol!
[12:17:41] <Bytram> great mimes think alike, eh?
[12:18:01] <Bytram> just cuaght up on scrollback ... sounds like some big changes are afoot for ya
[12:18:07] <cmn32480> the m,easure of a mans genius is how much he agrees with you
[12:18:08] <Bytram> {{{ cmn32480 }}}
[12:18:18] <cmn32480> probably not
[12:18:24] <cmn32480> they want the whole department to go.
[12:18:27] <Bytram> difficult decisions; my heart goes out to you and your fmaily
[12:18:33] <Bytram> how many inthe dept?
[12:18:39] <cmn32480> 5 of 7 said "Hell NO!"
[12:18:53] <Bytram> hrm
[12:18:59] <Bytram> and the other 2?
[12:19:13] <cmn32480> "meh - whatever"\
[12:19:19] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:19:42] <cmn32480> I'm tired of living on Hoth. I need my boss to tell me it is off the table.
[12:19:56] <Bytram> you have a good team, but some may be 'gooder' than others... were the 'mehs' among the gooder ones?
[12:20:22] <Bytram> iow, if the move happened, realistically how much / effective staff would you have?
[12:20:36] <Bytram> then put it in words they'd understand -- cost to the business.
[12:20:38] <cmn32480> the two that my boss really wants to move are both under "Hell NO!"
[12:20:44] <Bytram> YAY!
[12:20:54] <cmn32480> me and one other
[12:20:56] <Bytram> why does s/he want to move, anyway?
[12:21:13] <cmn32480> that was my thoguht. we are all in agreement that this is not an option, and we will find new jobs if forced.
[12:21:15] <Bytram> doesn't hurt you just had one of the largest orders ever, right?
[12:21:39] <cmn32480> there have been some shenanigans here with one of the owners
[12:21:49] <Bytram> hey boss, would you rather I work for you... or the competition?
[12:22:07] <Bytram> prolly shouldn't say that directly, but a certain intimation could be made.
[12:22:11] <cmn32480> it doens't HELP that we jsut had a gigantic project that sucked up all time and effort for months
[12:22:21] <cmn32480> no I said that directly
[12:22:21] <Bytram> how so?
[12:22:25] <Bytram> =)
[12:22:31] <cmn32480> "This job isn't worth a divorce"
[12:22:33] <Bytram> the reaction?
[12:23:09] <cmn32480> some understanding... but he can't quite grasp that some of us are very comfortable and don't want to start over
[12:23:24] <cmn32480> my kids are in one of the best school districts in the state
[12:23:29] <cmn32480> and I want to keep them there
[12:23:46] <Bytram> good for *them*
[12:24:02] <cmn32480> yes... worst case.. I can find another job
[12:24:22] <Bytram> how realistic an option would it be to "fork 'em" -- start your own co?
[12:24:40] <Bytram> you and the other "hell no!s"
[12:24:58] * Bytram wonders how the hell one is supposed to punctuate that?
[12:26:10] <Bytram> laundry calls, back shortly
[12:31:50] <cmn32480> your laundry calls? mine usually bellows somethign like "GET ME OUT OF HERE!! IT'S HOT!!!"
[12:36:00] <Bytram> just put it in the dryer... it'll be calling same in about an hour
[12:37:55] <cmn32480> how does it keep it's phone from getting wet?
[12:41:46] <Bytram> tumble dry?
[12:44:08] <cmn32480> in the washing machine
[12:45:03] <Bytram> nvm
[12:46:26] <Bytram> well, I'm expecting a call in about 15 minutes; gotta gets myself presentable for the day.
[12:46:31] <Bytram> will check bak in later in the day
[12:53:48] <cmn32480> Have a good day Bytram./... sorry for being inattentive.. I"m runnign a print job and managing 5 printers all at once... rather nerve wracking

[12:57:17] <Bytram> cmn32480: J is one very lucky woman... you're a fine man and if you should decide to change companies, whoever gets you will be very lucky indeed!
[12:57:20] <Bytram> ok, gtg
[12:59:26] <janrinok> just backreading - only just noticed that the log is incomplete
[12:59:44] <janrinok> wonder what I have been missing all these months?
[13:00:18] <cmn32480> hehehe
[13:00:24] <cmn32480> I guess you'll never know
[13:01:10] <janrinok> reference your question earlier about merging 2 storis when one is already processed - you chose the correct option!
[13:01:20] <cmn32480> WOO HOO!
[13:01:53] <cmn32480> that makes one thign I did right yesterday
[13:02:19] <janrinok> you get plenty right - it's your boss who is making a mistake here
[13:03:47] <cmn32480> sure doens't feel like it lately
[13:04:04] <cmn32480> whatever. the whole team wants to stay put.. me included.
[13:04:26] <cmn32480> different building, away from the idiots in sales across the hall, but stay up here
[13:04:43] <janrinok> well, I can't answer for your feelings, but you and the team are correct. Your Boss must be smoking something strong if he can't see that you wouldn't all want to pack up and move just like that
[13:08:02] <janrinok> I've got my PiL here at the moment - they will look after S while I am away in UK. Leaves me a bit busy at the moment though.
[13:08:36] <cmn32480> UNderstood

[13:08:57] <cmn32480> already most of the way there
[13:09:13] <cmn32480> and I've been curmudgeonly since birth if my motehr is to be believed
[13:09:17] <janrinok> np - I'm good for a few more days. Just trying to get Arthur pt 2 ready to push to you
[13:13:03] <cmn32480> no worries. If I have to copy paste, it isn't a big deal. I jsut have to remember to log out.
[13:13:29] <janrinok> yeah, I've fallen foul of that a few times...
[13:15:43] <cmn32480> no worries man. we'll get it taken care of
[13:16:07] <cmn32480> but I am glad that your PIL will be able to helop take care of S so you can go to the wedding
