[00:45:29] <cmn32480> M14
[01:44:21] <takyon> Scholars’ Open Statement to the APA Task Force on Violent Media (Delivered to the APA Task Force, 9/26/13)
[01:44:22] <takyon> WTF
[01:44:47] <cmn32480> care to clarify?
[01:45:29] <takyon> the story is new: http://www.bbc.com
[01:45:41] <takyon> can't tell what 9/26/13 on the document is supposed to mean
[01:45:58] <Deucalion> 26th September 103
[01:46:01] <Deucalion> 2013
[01:46:16] <Deucalion> New?
[01:46:31] <takyon> actually this story quotes from BBC article but does not link to it
[01:47:07] <cmn32480> did I miss that there is no link ot the main story?
[01:48:02] <cmn32480> the quote is from the APA PDF
[01:48:59] <cmn32480> or did I completely miss what they was saying.
[01:49:00] <takyon> the quotes near the bottom are from bbc article
[01:49:11] <cmn32480> my connection here is pretty bad and downloading the PDF wasn't gonna happen
[01:49:22] <takyon> I fixed the article
[01:49:27] <cmn32480> Thanks
[01:49:49] <cmn32480> I
[01:50:03] <cmn32480> m having a hellacious time checking links on stories with this internet connection
[01:50:21] <cmn32480> SN seems to load ok... btu getting to somethign wiht graphics on the page is rough
[01:50:38] <takyon> thank g_d for text
[01:50:45] <cmn32480> AMEN
[01:51:51] <cmn32480> think marking the toshiba story as related is good enough for the Seagate Kinetics story, or you wnat an link in the summary?
[01:52:32] <takyon> it's not a seagate kinetics story
[01:52:43] <takyon> it's a prediction on nand/disk prices story
[01:52:57] <takyon> yeah I wanted the toshiba story to run first so I could throw a link to it in
[01:53:01] <takyon> but it's not necessary
[01:54:10] <cmn32480> understood
[01:55:31] <cmn32480> thought you meant the story from a week (?) or so ago about the Toshiba/SanDisk NAND
[01:55:32] <cmn32480> https://soylentnews.org
[01:58:58] <takyon> toshiba back at it
[01:59:05] <takyon> vertical in every way possible
[01:59:32] <cmn32480> ok. I will run the Toshiba Story first, then link to it in the drvie prices
[01:59:36] <cmn32480> no worries
[01:59:57] <takyon> if these companies really tried, they could create a 256 TB 2.5" SSD with today's technology. maybe 512
[02:00:09] <takyon> at least that's my conclusion
[02:05:01] <cmn32480> TB?
[02:05:42] <cmn32480> that's a lot of meatballs
[02:07:57] <cmn32480> takyon - you still in the Toshiba story?
[02:08:02] <takyon> no
[02:08:07] <cmn32480> ok
[02:08:09] <cmn32480> just checking
[02:08:22] <cmn32480> my screen says you are so I wanted ot be sure you weren't editing before I put it out
[02:11:00] <takyon> live soylent screen share needed
[02:13:25] <Deucalion> that is a horrific thought
[02:22:20] <cmn32480> egad...
[02:22:22] <cmn32480> um no
[02:22:32] <cmn32480> I cna't imagine even trying that on this connection
[02:23:01] <cmn32480> IRC is scary enough... thanks
[02:24:13] <cmn32480> takyon Deucalion - do we care about this facebook post getting a woman an 800 Euro fine?
[02:24:24] <cmn32480> there have bene several stories in the queue about it
[02:24:31] <takyon> what, more than 1?
[02:24:59] <cmn32480> currently 2 stories in the queue on the same thing
[02:25:02] <takyon> Clearly the people of Soylent have spoken!
[02:25:06] <takyon> they want it
[02:25:20] <cmn32480> okily dokily... I'll run another merge
[02:32:05] <takyon> check the dates on your stories
[02:32:15] <takyon> got an 8-minute gap there
[03:04:09] <cmn32480> shit. nice catch
[03:04:15] <cmn32480> I fixed it
[03:04:21] <cmn32480> and now I am off to bed.

[12:25:50] <Bytram> g'morning everyone
[12:28:42] <Bytram> I submitted a story about 16 TB SDD drives; it may require some rewriting as it's early in the AM and my thought processes are not entirely up to speed.
[13:02:55] -!- LaminatorX [LaminatorX!~4472220d@15-066-74-22.static.gwnt.ga.charter.com] has joined #editorial

[13:03:36] <Bytram> i thot I did? lemme look
[13:03:37] <cmn32480> heya LaminatorX
[13:03:44] <LaminatorX> Hello.
[13:03:48] <Bytram> oops
[13:03:53] <cmn32480> I did it yesterday
[13:04:03] <cmn32480> tak caught it
[13:04:33] <cmn32480> teamwork++
[13:04:33] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 18
[13:04:33] <Bytram> nod nod
[13:04:40] <Bytram> LaminatorX: Hey! Howdy!!!
[13:04:50] <LaminatorX> Howdy.
[13:05:04] <Bytram> cmn32480: I'm really enjoying this lappy here... much speedier! Vrooooom!
[13:05:09] <Bytram> LaminatorX: how's things?
[13:05:21] <cmn32480> excellent Bytram. Gald to hear it is working out
[13:05:24] <Bytram> cmn32480: time adjusted.
[13:05:35] <cmn32480> amazing what going from 10 years old to 6 will do, sin't it?
[13:05:36] <Bytram> now I'm looking at backup strategies.
[13:05:43] <Bytram> no kidding!
[13:05:53] <Bytram> pretty soon I'll be 'born again'!
[13:06:03] <LaminatorX> Mostly well. I've got a bit of a lull this week between launches here at work.
[13:06:06] <Bytram> though, once through puberty was enough!
[13:06:11] <cmn32480> oh my... Bytram on modenr hardware... the world will end
[13:06:25] <Bytram> just think how fast I could break things!
[13:06:32] <cmn32480> or find buggs!
[13:06:36] <Bytram> NOTHING would get done!
[13:06:42] <cmn32480> or fixed
[13:06:43] <Bytram> world domination will be mine!
[13:07:05] <LaminatorX> We replaced the old P4 box my Dad's been running with a 2nd hand Mac mini. The power savings will pay for itself within a year.
[13:07:19] <Bytram> that's a plus
[13:07:49] <Bytram> wait, a P4? Isn't that like a blow-dryer power-wise?
[13:07:58] <LaminatorX> It didn't help that the P4 was a gaming hot-rod in its day. Lots of fans, lights, etc.
[13:08:04] <Bytram> 100W+ IIRC?
[13:08:07] <Bytram> oh. my.
[13:09:12] <cmn32480> the lights dimmed when turned on...
[13:09:16] <cmn32480> it was excellent
[13:09:21] <Bytram> LOL!
[13:10:06] <LaminatorX> My septuagenarian father was not really pushing it. I actually UNDERclocked it years ago and dropped the fan-speeds down to a whir.
[13:10:16] * Bytram remembers the old 14" hard drives... those things pulled a LOT of power... should see the coils they had to move the heads across the platters... HUGE!
[13:10:28] <Bytram> LaminatorX: good thinking!
[13:10:30] <cmn32480> before I was born....
[13:11:07] <Bytram> LaminatorX: remember the 'Turbo' button that was popular for a while?
[13:11:33] <LaminatorX> I recall a friend having a 486 with one of those.
[13:11:38] <Bytram> I remember pushing it in, everything worked, and just left it engaged.
[13:11:45] <Bytram> that's the one
[13:12:22] <cmn32480> i do actually remember those... my first computer had one
[13:12:34] <cmn32480> a 486-25
[13:12:35] <Bytram> I had a 486/25MHz with 4(?)MB RAM and a 120MB drive -- that was a speed deamon with so much storage!
[13:13:02] <Bytram> Lotus 1-2-3 ran so much faster!
[13:14:00] * Bytram has been up since 0530 and is debating taking a nap before going into work a couple hours from now
[13:14:02] <cmn32480> when RMA was $32/MB
[13:14:17] <Bytram> if you were lucky, that is.
[13:14:31] <cmn32480> computer shows... Dad could always find a deal
[13:14:44] <Bytram> nice
[13:14:46] <LaminatorX> I met 14" drives once, back in college. Some fool had bought an old HP 9000 at a govt auction and hired a buddy and I to get it set up for him. The FPU and FPU controller were each seperate 1u 19" rack boards.
[13:15:31] <Bytram> I believe it!
[13:15:53] <cmn32480> gets ome rest Bytram... the queue is good until lat this afternoon Eastern
[13:15:58] <LaminatorX> http://www.hpmuseum.net
[13:16:07] <cmn32480> I'll be back from the beach in about 3 hours or so and will shove s'more stuff in it
[13:16:07] <Bytram> chromas: nod nod
[13:16:11] <Bytram> k
[13:16:56] <Bytram> fwiw, my first hard disk had a huge capacity of 40 MB and cost me about $250 at the time. I now have over 150 *times* as much *RAM* in this lappy.
[13:17:02] <cmn32480> but I'll be honest... I'm not sure how you deal on an internet connection ilke this
[13:17:13] <cmn32480> I'm almost going into withdrawal
[13:17:19] <Bytram> patience
[13:17:34] <cmn32480> not a skill I have Master Jedi
[13:18:15] <cmn32480> but on the upside... we haven't needed Arthur the last couple days
[13:18:21] <cmn32480> but I have him if we do.
[13:18:33] <LaminatorX> I was wondering about that, good.
[13:18:55] <cmn32480> Janrinok and I planned that out LaminatorX
[13:19:19] <cmn32480> the last version (e) has an issue, so I have reverted to version d
[13:19:45] <cmn32480> version e does not pull the links from the stories
[13:20:24] <cmn32480> I'll let jan know when he gets back off holiday. don't want him to even be thinking about it.
[13:20:47] <LaminatorX> Indeed, his holliday is well deserved.
[13:20:55] <cmn32480> yes, sir.
[13:21:07] <cmn32480> his daughter is getting married
[13:23:02] <LaminatorX> Right. I knew a Jesuit once who took a sabbatical from retirement and went back to school. Apperently the rules were such that if you'd had the same posting for 7 years you could take one. It seems he convinced the order that retirement counted as a post. He went back to grad-school.
[13:27:15] <cmn32480> gents... we are off to the beach.
[13:27:21] <cmn32480> eveybody have a good day
[13:27:34] <cmn32480> I'll be back in 3-4 hours.
[13:27:47] <cmn32480> hopefully sunburnless... :-)
[13:28:00] cmn32480 is now known as cmn32480|beach
[13:28:53] <cmn32480|beach> a persuasive Jesuit... not a huge surprise!
[13:38:50] LaminatorX is now known as LaminatorX|afk
[13:40:47] <Bytram> back
[13:42:36] <Bytram> cmn32480|beach: hmmm, got a paywall on the NYT link for the ICANN story. :/
[13:44:12] <Bytram> sry, that was the Wall Street Journal link
[13:49:48] <cmn32480|beach> I was able to see it
[13:50:14] <Bytram> hmm, I've got addblock and noscript running.
[13:50:23] <cmn32480|beach> gimme a sec
[13:50:30] <Bytram> http://www.ibloomberg.net
[13:50:37] <Bytram> that seems to have the same article()
[13:50:39] <cmn32480|beach> shit... now I hit the paywall
[13:50:49] <Bytram> s/..$/(?)/
[13:51:31] <cmn32480|beach> yup
[13:51:33] <Bytram> nod nod
[13:51:35] <cmn32480|beach> will change the link
[13:51:42] <cmn32480|beach> *I will change the link
[13:51:45] <Bytram> the NYT link worked for me.
[13:51:51] <Bytram> I'm addding the bloomberg link, too.
[13:53:00] <cmn32480|beach> updated the link
[13:53:13] <Bytram> cmn32480|beach: I see you are editing the story, too?
[13:53:36] <cmn32480|beach> I changed the link. when you change it will overwrite the link adjustment
[13:53:46] <cmn32480|beach> if you made the same change, no harm no foul.
[13:53:55] <cmn32480|beach> I should have looked.
[13:54:06] <Bytram> that's why I'm checking with you... have you saved your changes?
[13:54:10] <cmn32480|beach> yes
[13:54:17] <Bytram> okay, I'll take a look in a new window
[13:54:18] <cmn32480|beach> you may now overwrite my changes
[13:54:24] <Bytram> no can do
[13:54:57] * Bytram loads new copy of story with your changes in it
[13:55:16] * cmn32480|beach backs away slowly
[13:55:25] <Bytram> ahhh, so the bloomberg and WSJ stories *are* the same?
[13:55:37] <cmn32480|beach> looks like it. the quote fits both
[13:56:02] <Bytram> yeah, but I could not see the rest of the WSJ story, so I don't know for sure that the entire story is identical
[13:56:41] <cmn32480|beach> the quote is word for word the same
[13:56:49] <Bytram> nod nod
[13:57:17] <Bytram> how about: "Originally seen in the Wall Street Journal [wsj.com] (paywalled) Seems to also be at Bloomberg. [ibloomberg.net]"
[13:57:19] <cmn32480|beach> and it credits WSJ at the bottom of the BLoomburg article
[13:57:24] <Bytram> oh. doh!
[13:57:41] <cmn32480|beach> I'm guessing they are identical
[13:57:44] <Bytram> hmmm
[13:57:47] <Bytram> prolly
[13:58:13] <Bytram> how about changing 'originally seen in' to be 'original at'
[13:58:28] <cmn32480|beach> yes
[13:58:39] <Bytram> k give me a minute or two
[13:58:52] <cmn32480|beach> is ICANN supposed to be all caps? or is it supposed to be Icann
[13:59:19] <Bytram> icannot tell
[13:59:26] <Bytram> =)
[13:59:31] <Bytram> I would think it's ICANN
[13:59:34] <cmn32480|beach> <groan>
[13:59:42] <Bytram> LOL!
[13:59:46] <Bytram> mission accomplished!
[14:00:28] <cmn32480|beach> I agree... article title has it as Icann
[14:00:47] <Bytram> btw, bloomberg article is actually at ibloomberg.net, not bloomberg.com -- fixed.
[14:01:02] <cmn32480|beach> wow... I suck at this today

[20:42:54] <cmn32480|beach> CoolHand - Janronok is on holiday for the next 2 weeks. left today, but was getting things set for S being taken care of by his in-laws and the nurse. Not really shocked he hasn't been around the last few days. If we need it, I have a copy of Arthur
[20:43:39] cmn32480|beach is now known as cmn32480
[21:57:04] <takyon> project sunroof looks neat
[22:14:39] <cmn32480> I was thinking the same thing.. right up to the point where I realized it is only set up for SF and Boston
[22:21:18] <takyon> ouch
[22:21:32] <takyon> could be because of 3D coverage
[22:21:44] <takyon> back when they first started adding 3D buildings, it was only major cities
[22:44:58] <cmn32480> yeah.. nothign that gives any indication of time frame for expansion.
[22:45:40] <cmn32480> we are off to the pool for swimming an a movie. back later. Queue is good into tomorrow morning Eastern
[23:31:51] <takyon> thanks
