[00:55:29] <takyon> "Researchers Claim Human Brain Grow in a Lab"
[00:55:32] <takyon> YEAH I DUNNO
[00:56:02] <cmn32480> shit
[00:56:04] <cmn32480> thanks!
[00:56:09] <takyon> Researchers Claim "Almost Fully Formed" Human Brain Grown in a Lab
[00:56:35] <takyon> honestly this is the way to make AI
[00:56:46] <cmn32480> better headline. updateing now.
[00:56:50] <takyon> just grow a brain, hook it to comp
[00:57:00] <takyon> "We don't have any sensory stimuli entering the brain. This brain is not thinking in any way."
[00:57:16] <takyon> WOW GEE GUYS, that's something for the version 2.0 checklist when DARPA hires you
[00:57:43] <cmn32480> until it accidentally gets implanted in Franensteins monster under the name Abbey Normal
[01:00:48] <takyon> halloween in 2 months
[01:02:16] <cmn32480> uh huh
[01:02:18] <cmn32480> see?????
[01:03:15] <cmn32480> any thoughts on the portable isladns story Takyon?
[01:03:24] <cmn32480> I think it is kinda iffy
[01:03:33] <takyon> throwing in the ISIS story
[01:03:43] <takyon> did run buzzfeed story because it is a big deal
[01:03:53] <cmn32480> ok
[01:04:09] <takyon> we like to not think of buzzfeed but normals eat it up
[01:04:49] <cmn32480> normals? they like muggles?
[01:05:20] <cmn32480> blissfully going about their day totally unaware of the world around them...
[01:05:30] <takyon> yeh
[01:06:01] <takyon> this tech bubble is being blown up with care and deliberation
[01:06:09] <takyon> but billions for buzzfeed? woa
[01:06:28] <cmn32480> i see your point
[01:06:49] <cmn32480> any ideas on this patella.whack guy that has been submitting a ton of stuff?
[01:06:57] <cmn32480> most of it is pretty well done
[01:07:02] <takyon> no, other than I like the person
[01:07:09] <Bytram> cmn32480: !!
[01:07:10] <Bytram> takyon: !!
[01:07:15] <cmn32480> Bytram !!
[01:07:16] <takyon> !_!
[01:07:22] <Bytram> lol!
[01:07:30] <Bytram> hey, I just tossed a new story into subs
[01:07:45] <Bytram> kinda timely, it's the list of things that todays college freshman have never not known
[01:08:00] <Bytram> and was just released on aug 18
[01:08:13] <takyon> i'll toss this in when i'm sober: http://nextbigfuture.com
[01:08:16] <cmn32480> the internet!
[01:08:18] <Bytram> they put it out each year, and have done so since 1998
[01:08:31] <cmn32480> I've seen it before
[01:08:37] <cmn32480> in previous years, I mean
[01:08:58] <Bytram> so you know what it's about then
[01:09:16] <Bytram> always makes me look at the world kinda different after I read their list
[01:09:28] <Bytram> like, they have ALWAYS had google!?!!!!
[01:09:31] <cmn32480> i.e.: it makes Bytram feel old
[01:09:51] <Bytram> whadaya mean *feel* old; I almost *am* old! =)
[01:10:03] <cmn32480> he remembers this big building with books in it
[01:10:19] <cmn32480> and to find stuff, you had to flip through actual index cards in a big cabinet
[01:10:34] <Bytram> I had heard news of the report being out on my ride home on the radio, and just put the story together as fast as I could as soon as I got home.
[01:10:43] <Bytram> yuppers
[01:10:51] <cmn32480> I saw one once
[01:10:59] <Bytram> a library?
[01:11:00] <cmn32480> I think it was in the Smithsonian
[01:11:02] <Bytram> or a building
[01:11:25] <Bytram> =)
[01:11:26] <cmn32480> one of them card catalog thingies
[01:11:38] <cmn32480> said it was a relic from antiquity
[01:11:52] <cmn32480> your are an antique Bytram!
[01:11:58] <Bytram> yeah, better than nothing, but not too quick to find stuff, that's for sure!
[01:12:13] <Bytram> that means I'm appreciating in value, I hope!
[01:14:56] <Bytram> btw ISIS story is only 52 minutes after prior story.
[01:15:13] <takyon> that's practically normal
[01:15:18] <takyon> for a weekday
[01:15:43] <cmn32480> we been releaseing closer to 75-90 min out takyon
[01:15:45] <Bytram> I thought the goal was 90 minutes or so; longer on weekends if need be when the sub queue runs dry
[01:17:35] <Bytram> I pushed out a story and left enough of a gap so the one prior can be moved out
[01:23:08] <Bytram> afk; biab
[01:23:27] <cmn32480> don't you threaten us Bytram!
[01:26:32] <cmn32480> Bytram - I added a link to the previous lists to your story.
[01:31:33] <Bytram> cmn32480: nice! thanks!
[01:31:38] * Bytram goes to look
[01:33:55] * Deucalion peeks in... how goes it in editorial? dare I ask?
[01:34:41] <cmn32480> some new guy keeps submitting stuff
[01:34:56] <cmn32480> most of it is pretty good
[01:35:12] <cmn32480> sub queue keeps goign over 20 despite the team's best efforts
[01:35:37] <cmn32480> all in all.. things are pretty good (minus needing a couple more hands)
[01:36:11] <Deucalion> as long as they are quality subs - that's a good thing right? Unless we end up publishing mostly their subs of course....
[01:36:33] <Bytram> cmn32480: yeah, patella.whack or something similar -- good submissions, too! little if any editing required! YAY!
[01:36:34] <cmn32480> it is a new set of thoughts and subjects
[01:36:36] <Deucalion> cmn32480, yeh, the flag has been raised for "need more eds"
[01:37:07] <Bytram> Deucalion: well, with subs like those, it's much easier and quicker to push 'em out at stories
[01:37:08] <cmn32480> Deucalion - I know... I wrote the sub... and we got one out of two... more subs... not more eds
[01:37:32] <takyon> so we killed the aliens story huh
[01:37:53] <cmn32480> yeah... too conspiracy theory... and the guy has a history of being just a little too nutty
[01:38:15] <Bytram> for the most part, with PW's subs, I just need to read it, check for any possible typos or grammar errors (really haven't seen any yet) and just pick a date/time
[01:38:26] <cmn32480> nod nod
[01:38:36] <Deucalion> As long as it is not another janrinok alt... I swear that guy is going to burn out if knackerbracket keeps up the pace and he's ed'ing as well :(
[01:38:48] <cmn32480> much same with p666
[01:39:02] <Bytram> do need to be mindful of any possible overriding bias so that it does not affect the overall 'flavor' of the sight; not that I've noticed any; just a precautionary observation
[01:39:06] <cmn32480> Deucalion - you know ATK is an automated submission, right?
[01:39:06] <Bytram> chromas: yup
[01:39:39] <Bytram> cmn32480: yup (autocomplete on c<tab> didn't quite work out as I thought it would)
[01:40:04] <cmn32480> he pulls in from the RSS feed, and auto submits based on some magical criteria janronok has set up
[01:40:08] <Deucalion> cmn32480, I did, then I forgot it was, then I did, then I forgot it was again, then you reminded me. Sorry, I have a lot going on right now.
[01:40:17] <cmn32480> is ok
[01:40:35] <cmn32480> I have a copy of Arthur, just in case, while janrinok is on holiday
[01:40:36] <takyon> knackerbracket isn't the submitter we deserve, but the submitter we need right now
[01:40:50] * Bytram is 2nding stories atm
[01:40:59] <cmn32480> how so takyon?
[01:41:12] <takyon> i was just trying to quote batman cmn32480
[01:41:37] <cmn32480> now I see it.... sorry... slow on the uptake... too much beer and sun today
[01:42:00] * Deucalion hands out playful IRC edict - no user shall have a nick that starts with the same letter as any other.... just so X<tab> works consistently :) We need a bigger alphabet for #soylent of course....
[01:43:01] cmn32480 is now known as qmn32480
[01:43:15] <qmn32480> <sigh> and I had so grown to like my initials
[01:43:17] <takyon> should use cyrillic
[01:43:21] <Bytram> qmn32480: 'q'ute!
[01:43:52] qmn32480 is now known as cmn32480
[01:44:12] * cmn32480 takes Deucalion's playful edict, and can't bring himself to comply
[01:45:08] <cmn32480> the only issue that I have is that my copy of arthur doesn't auto submit. janrinok had some issues porting that before going away.... so I get to copy paste the output
[01:45:11] <Deucalion> Well that is understandable given your longevity with that assemblage of characters
[01:45:14] <Bytram> hmmm
[01:45:49] <cmn32480> I've been me my whole life!
[01:45:53] <Bytram> Deucalion: are you referring to the characters in the alphabet, or this cast of characters on IRC? =)
[01:46:07] <cmn32480> yes
[01:46:16] <Deucalion> ^what he said
[01:46:25] <Bytram> LOL!
[01:46:39] <Bytram> gives new meaning to the phrase 'character generator'
[01:47:10] <cmn32480> we have quite enough characters here bytram... no need for extras
[01:47:11] Bytram is now known as bytram
[01:47:39] <cmn32480> both B and b give same output... Bytram
[01:47:47] <Bytram> stange, cannot use 'รค' in a nick!
[01:48:08] * Bytram was just testing to make sure I had the right command for changing my nick
[01:48:21] <cmn32480> so you wanna be "japanese-pagoda-tram"
[01:48:31] <cmn32480> I think that might be too long
[01:48:37] takyon is now known as barryon
[01:48:48] cmn32480 is now known as barryoff
[01:48:49] <Bytram> that would be "japanese-pagoda-tram-san" to you
[01:49:05] <barryon> "-chan"
[01:49:19] <barryoff> "-chung"
[01:50:05] * barryoff wonders if barryschroedinger is really here or not
[01:50:38] <barryon> http://www.theregister.co.uk
[01:50:42] <barryschroedinger> not really
[01:50:53] <Deucalion> Bytram, irc nicks and channels are quite restricted in charset. I'm certainly not volunteering to rework both an ircd and services to support UTF-8.
[01:51:19] barryoff is now known as takyoff
[01:51:30] takyoff is now known as cmn32480
[01:51:34] <barryschroedinger> Deucalion: understood; just seemed obvious with the internet being world-wide that IRC should support more than just plain ASCII
[01:51:38] <cmn32480> I feel liek my old self again
[01:51:58] <Bytram> I dunno, I kinda lieked the new you!
[01:52:18] <cmn32480> yeah... he could type... but he was a bit... off somehow
[01:53:04] <Bytram> nod nod
[01:53:43] <Bytram> hmm, BarryManilow(?)
[01:53:45] <Deucalion> Bytram, sure, it ~should~. One has to mindful of when IRC dates from though. I'm not sure there's even an actively maintained ircd any more - charybdis certainly isn't.
[01:54:16] <Bytram> charybdis? really? 'between a rock and a hard place', eh?
[01:54:40] <cmn32480> Deucalion - http://www.irc.org
[01:54:43] <Bytram> it's just that given its longetivity, I'd have thought someone would have done it by now.
[01:54:49] <cmn32480> [ask and thou shalt receive!
[01:55:14] <barryon> HexChat support unicode
[01:55:30] <Bytram> cmn32480: page last modified: Sunday, March 07, 2004 2:31:32 PM
[01:55:39] <cmn32480> yeah.... I noticed that
[01:55:46] <cmn32480> was wondering if anybody else would
[01:55:51] <cmn32480> :-)
[01:55:53] <Bytram> barryon: yup, but for some reason, that does not extend to nicks
[01:56:17] <Deucalion> They were initially restricted to 12 chars too.
[01:57:02] <cmn32480> wow... www.irc.org hasn't been updated since 2005 either
[01:57:14] <Deucalion> Goes back to dial-up days when data sent/recd was at a premium.
[01:57:39] * Bytram remembers those days
[01:57:45] <Deucalion> likewise
[01:58:13] <Bytram> I remember getting a Zoom Modem and was amazed how much faster 1200 baud was than 300
[01:58:25] <cmn32480> registration is current... through gandi... and all contacts are in France
[01:58:34] <Deucalion> Hayes AT commands on a dumb serial connected VDU.... can't say I remember them with any fondness, other than the simplicity.
[01:58:45] * Bytram tries to remember the terminal program he ran at thte time
[01:58:51] <Bytram> procomm?
[01:59:10] <Bytram> it had xmodem/ymodem/kermit for file transfer, IIRC
[01:59:45] <cmn32480> what's a modem?
[02:00:03] <cmn32480> does that go on the list of things that the people starting college have never known?
[02:00:27] <Bytram> it's what their cable connection plugs into so they can get on the internet
[02:00:44] <cmn32480> that is an etehrenet card
[02:01:03] <cmn32480> irc.org... Registered date: 1993
[02:01:14] * Bytram does not recall seeing an ethernet card that took a coax connector unless it was t-base/10
[02:01:38] <cmn32480> thinnet... BNC connections
[02:01:38] <Bytram> TerminatingConnectors--
[02:01:38] <Bender> karma - terminatingconnectors: -1
[02:01:45] <Bytram> 'xactly
[02:01:49] <cmn32480> ick
[02:02:10] <barryon> byetram
[02:02:13] <cmn32480> you are correct... but I was thinking like a modem that went into a PC
[02:03:05] <Bytram> where I worked, buncha people had no idea about topology; they'd just put a 'T' in anywhere and run a line off it, with multiple other 'T's attached to those in a bit of an electronic hydra
[02:03:19] <Bytram> it's amazaing the system even worked at all!
[02:04:14] <cmn32480> heh... first place I worked out of college was a twinax shop
[02:04:34] <cmn32480> that was bad... daisy chained terminals... touch one thing and KABOOM!
[02:07:02] * Deucalion tasks cmn32480 to make up a DB25 to DB9 serial cable with hardware flow control lines wired in.
[02:07:07] * Deucalion chuckles
[02:07:17] <cmn32480> can do.
[02:07:19] <Bytram> twinax? not sure if I used that, but it does remind me of the dual coax connectors that were used on Wang computers
[02:07:31] <cmn32480> twinax was an AS400 thing
[02:07:48] <Bytram> ahh
[02:07:59] <cmn32480> only IBM used it to run their dumb terminals. and it was VERY sensitive
[02:07:59] <Bytram> how 'bout token ring? /me has used that, too
[02:08:35] <cmn32480> you coudl take the terminal off, but you had to leave the y connector in place... and each leg maxed at like 7 devices.
[02:10:35] * Bytram guesses that it prolly had device ids or somesuch on 'em; 000 001 010 011 100 101 110 111 gives you eight choices; prolly reserved 000 for non-connected
[02:10:39] * Deucalion only stumbled across token ring once, in a news print place, multi site network. The guy running it was fervent about its merits at the time ethernet was sweeping all before it and tcp/ip was displacing ipx/spx. I swear he had a little froth in the corner of his mouth.
[02:10:55] <Bytram> either that, or there were capacitive issues or the like
[02:11:50] <cmn32480> device ID's are correct. 1-7. It was a bitch. I don't miss it.
[02:11:52] <Bytram> token ring was an elegant solution but the connectors were monsters and just didn't keep up with the advancements made on ethernet
[02:12:19] <Bytram> cmn32480: really? WOW! That was just a pie-in-the-sky kinda guess there.
[02:12:46] <cmn32480> like I said... I don't miss it
[02:13:22] <Bytram> I can understand why.
[02:13:46] <cmn32480> the one guy from that job that I still keep in touch with get a well wish and an imaginary box of "NO Twin-Ax" every year for his birthday
[02:14:03] <Deucalion> I just rapidly learnt that one cannot exist in what was then the nascent "IT" world and not accept change. Even if "change" is just the same rehashed ideas reheated sometimes, the tide is unstoppable.
[02:14:20] <cmn32480> but occassionally, just to mess with him, when I find it at a customer site, I will send him a 3 or 5ft long piece...
[02:15:11] <cmn32480> Deucalion - an absolutely correct statement!
[02:15:20] <Bytram> cmn32480: do you ever send him something worthwhile, or does he just know that any pkg from you contains twinax?
[02:15:44] <cmn32480> nope... I used to send beer. He is 2 years sober now.
[02:15:48] <cmn32480> toys for his dog
[02:16:09] <cmn32480> a rubber band gun to defend his cubicle
[02:16:24] <cmn32480> and an occassional box of twinax
[02:16:35] <cmn32480> he never knows until he opens the box
[02:16:37] <Bytram> noice!
[02:16:43] <cmn32480> it is awesome.
[02:16:53] <cmn32480> I cna hear the vapor lock happen from 3 states away
[02:16:57] * Bytram finished 2nding the stories in the story queue
[02:17:01] <Bytram> LOL!
[02:17:39] <cmn32480> 1 more just dropped Bytram
[02:18:10] <Deucalion> I'm going to prod #soylent, enough reminiscing for one night for this soul. Good chewing the fat as always :)
[02:18:15] <cmn32480> you guys don't expect me to edit this many when I come off vacation do you?
[02:18:24] <Deucalion> no
[02:18:27] <Deucalion> more!
[02:18:29] <cmn32480> oh Thanks GOD!
[02:18:37] <cmn32480> NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[02:18:41] <Deucalion> :D
[02:18:57] <cmn32480> that's what I get for speaking too soon
[02:19:05] <Bytram> cmn32480: story loked good; 2nded

[02:19:24] <cmn32480> excellent. it was Takyon's, so it was mostly a link check and rubber stamp
[02:19:33] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:19:45] <Bytram> Deucalion: and with you as well
[02:19:49] <Bytram> and with that, it's time for some shuteye; tomorrow is my only day off this week and I've been running on empty for thepast couple days.

[20:40:32] <Bytram> I did a quick look at each of 'em; i.e. grammar, spelling, formatting and th elike.
[20:40:36] <Bytram> lol
[20:40:41] <Bytram> *the like
[20:41:01] <cmn32480> checked links too I hope?
[20:41:12] <Bytram> couldn't find a journal source for the ACS story on CO2 capture
[20:41:19] <cmn32480> ok
[20:41:21] <Bytram> not all of 'em
[20:41:23] <cmn32480> will see what I can find
[20:41:38] <Bytram> I'm sure you'll find something!
[20:42:01] * Bytram needs to check laundry and get ready to head out for the evening
[20:42:01] <cmn32480> if I don't jsut say f**k it and turn off my compeuter
[20:42:15] <Bytram> that *would* be a good idea!
[20:42:25] <cmn32480> I'
[20:42:33] <cmn32480> m getting bombarded with shit for work
[20:42:54] <cmn32480> and have basically taken this afternoon to dealw ith as much as I can. even if I don't want to
[20:43:05] <Bytram> at times, it would be nice to have a 'flag this' button of some sort to let us know when there's a mistake in a story. OTOH, I fear the abuse that could ensue.
[20:43:14] <Bytram> bummer
[20:43:29] <Bytram> I hope it clears up quick and you can then enjoy the rest of your time off!
[20:43:36] <cmn32480> jumping ship to a new employer seems to gain more and more prominence in my thoughts each day
[20:43:37] <Bytram> gtg; afk, biab
[20:43:46] <cmn32480> c u l8r bytram
[20:44:09] <Bytram> I know the feeling; but it's also helpful to make a list of things that are *good* about the currrent situation.
[20:44:21] <Bytram> when I focus on a problem, soon that's all I can see, yanno?
[20:44:25] <cmn32480> 1) I sstill have a paycheck
[20:44:35] <Bytram> now THAT's important!
[20:44:37] <cmn32480> 2) ummmmmmmmmmm
[20:44:40] <cmn32480> shit
[20:44:45] <cmn32480> that's all I got for now
[20:44:54] * Bytram helpfully offers a Maalox
[20:45:02] <cmn32480> hehehe
[20:45:05] <cmn32480> thanks
[20:45:12] <cmn32480> go get ready. I'll probably be here later
[20:45:15] <Bytram> ROFL!
[20:45:18] <Bytram> afk
[21:17:18] <Bytram> cmn32480: btw, wrt the CO2 capture story... we can't put tags in the title, so I used &#x2082; for a subscripted 2. Looks okay in my browser (pale moon); but might not work for everyone; maybe change it back to just a plain '2'??
[21:17:46] <cmn32480> did you just resubmit the vw story?
[21:17:57] <cmn32480> it shows in the story queue twice...
[21:18:03] <cmn32480> or am I VERY confused?
[21:23:48] <cmn32480> wow... December 31, 1969 was a big news day around here...
[21:24:39] <Bytram> how so?
[21:26:56] <cmn32480> 0000-00-00 00:00:00
[21:27:31] <cmn32480> it is the hiding place for those of us who screw up and post a story 2 or sometimes 3 times
[21:27:59] <cmn32480> use the site search, leave it blank, nad set it to show oldest first
[21:35:14] <Bytram> ooooh! that's a GREAT trick!
[21:35:30] <cmn32480> janrinok confided that one to me
[21:35:36] <Bytram> I would load up the story list, page down, figure out the offset format, and modify the URL
[21:35:49] <Bytram> search is a lot easier!
[21:35:55] <cmn32480> egad
[21:36:08] <cmn32480> yes I bet it is
[21:36:35] <cmn32480> see... stick with me kid... I'm full of reasonably interesting ideas
[21:36:39] <Bytram> I know on a couple of occasions early on in my editing career, I musta incorrectly changes the date/time because I remember thinking; "Huh? Where did that story go?"
[21:36:47] <Bytram> sure pop!
[21:37:01] <cmn32480> yup
[21:37:08] <Bytram> goes the weasel!
[21:37:19] <cmn32480> there is a bunch of stuff in Y2K and 12/31/2013 as well
[21:38:09] <Bytram> I believe it!
[21:38:30] <cmn32480> aren't you supposed ot be getting ready for a night on the town?
[21:40:56] <Bytram> not really a night on the town, but I suppose I should be getting going.

[21:47:09] <Bytram> do you have my phone #?
[21:47:13] <cmn32480> yes
[21:47:45] <Bytram> thought so, but want ed to make sure. NC & mrcool should, too. but just in case wanted to make sure you could pass it along if needed.
