[03:15:18] <cmn32480|sleepin> oh good
[03:15:58] <cmn32480|sleepin> I was hoping that was gonna be the answer

[03:19:28] <cmn32480|sleepin> that Raspberry Pi2 Story looks great.. if I can find a link and do a total rewrite

[03:24:20] <cmn32480|sleepin> I seconded your slide to unlock story
[03:24:27] <cmn32480|sleepin> made one minor change
[03:24:31] <takyon> https://learn.adafruit.com ?
[03:24:32] <^> ^ 03Overview | 10" Raspberry Pi Desktop | Adafruit Learning System
[03:24:40] <cmn32480|sleepin> I put "from reuters:" on its own line
[03:24:51] <cmn32480|sleepin> your google-fu is strong
[03:25:05] <takyon> mmk
[03:34:57] <cmn32480|sleepin> ok i just dropped the DIY Rasp. pi in the queue.
[03:35:03] <cmn32480|sleepin> that is actaully pretty cool.
[03:37:23] <takyon> I think we put a space in Raspberry Pi
[03:37:43] <cmn32480|sleepin> I think you are correct.
[03:37:44] <takyon> "The cost of this build is easily goes "
[03:37:45] <cmn32480|sleepin> good catch
[03:38:03] <takyon> i'll make the changes
[03:38:13] <takyon> "ment to be premium build"

[03:38:20] <takyon> holy shit who wrtoe tihs
[03:38:22] <cmn32480|sleepin> the quotes are direct
[03:38:27] <cmn32480|sleepin> mistakes and all
[03:38:31] <cmn32480|sleepin> but yes, I agree
[03:39:42] <takyon> "10-in" in headline rather than "10in"?
[03:39:50] <takyon> ah whatever
[03:39:56] <cmn32480|sleepin> probably 10 inch
[03:40:49] <takyon> isn't it more like a laptop with the display added?
[03:41:13] <cmn32480|sleepin> no.
[03:41:24] <cmn32480|sleepin> keyboard is totally detached.
[03:41:37] <cmn32480|sleepin> and all the guts are behind the screen
[03:41:45] <cmn32480|sleepin> more like an all-in-one
[03:42:22] <cmn32480|sleepin> ok

[03:42:34] <cmn32480|sleepin> night
[03:42:40] <cmn32480|sleepin> thanks for the help
[15:49:48] <Bytram> Hi all!
[15:50:28] <Bytram> quick heads up: BGP is NOT Border Gateway Patrol protocol; it's Border Gateway Protocol... I fixed the ref in the internet backbone story and added a link to wikipedia
[15:52:16] <Bytram> also, be aware when posting a story from Arthur T whatshisname... we need to <blockquote>...</blockquote> whatever we include in the story; otherwise it fails to properly attribute the source.
[16:42:22] <Bytram> okay, I pushed out a few stories that should us through the rest of the day or so.
[17:04:27] <CoolHand> Bytram: still here?
[17:04:43] <Bytram> nope!
[17:04:44] <Bytram> =)
[17:04:49] <Bytram> how ya doin?
[17:05:24] <CoolHand> ok... I was looking at that COH2 story... I popped on gamingonlinux and didn't see anything about it.., so went to their irc channel and asked about it..
[17:05:32] <Bytram> hmmm
[17:05:55] <CoolHand> there was really weird response.. not sure if its out yet or not, but it seemed there was a lot of skepticism about the release and its quality if it does release
[17:06:02] <CoolHand> maybe we should hold that story a bit mroe..
[17:06:20] <Bytram> okay... /me is reading the linked story now
[17:08:04] <CoolHand> they definitely don't think much of the phoronix dude over there..
[17:08:43] <CoolHand> wait
[17:09:07] <Bytram> https://twitter.com
[17:09:08] <^> ^ 03Feral Interactive on Twitter: "Mac Linux ready their armies: Company of Heroes 2 will arrive Aug 27 on Steam and soon after on MAS. Minisite: http://t.co"
[17:09:13] <CoolHand> http://www.gamingonlinux.com
[17:09:14] <^> ^ 03Company Of Heroes 2 Launches For Linux On August 27th | GamingOnLinux
[17:09:23] <CoolHand> alrighty.. sorry for the hubbub
[17:09:44] <Bytram> no worries... looks like some good links to add to the story...
[17:09:47] <Bytram> I'll get right on it
[17:10:03] <CoolHand> yeah I think he just bumped a story from a week ago saying it was gonna be out in a week
[17:11:03] <CoolHand> here is a link about it being per-platform multiplayer... :( http://steamcommunity.com
[17:11:04] <^> ^ 03This is why CoH2 will have per platform multiplayer :: Mac Linux multiplayer
[17:13:26] <Bytram> CoolHand: question: "... soon after on MAS" ?? what's a MAS?
[17:13:40] <CoolHand> which story?
[17:13:45] <Bytram> I think that should be "MAC"??
[17:14:03] <Bytram> same one... the twitter link I posted:
[17:14:03] <Bytram> https://twitter.com
[17:14:53] <CoolHand> good question
[17:15:02] <Bytram> lets try this one, that it linked to: http://t.co
[17:16:09] <Bytram> looks like the headline bot died. :/
[17:16:15] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org
[17:17:05] <CoolHand> yep
[17:17:32] <CoolHand> i wonder if MAS is mac app store or somethng
[17:17:39] <Bytram> whois sez it is 'monopoly'... any idea whose bot that is?
[17:17:49] <Bytram> could be, I suppose
[17:18:04] <Bytram> ahhh, it's chromas' bot.
[17:18:39] <CoolHand> looks like MAC=Mac app store.. I ducked "mac app store mas" and getting back positives
[17:18:57] <Bytram> k
[17:19:02] <Bytram> I'll leave it as was, then
[17:19:24] <Bytram> and I'll linkify the t.co shortened link
[17:20:02] * Bytram clicks preview
[17:20:56] * Bytram clicks update
[17:22:35] <CoolHand> cool
[17:23:11] <Bytram> it's kinda handy having the <hr> to make it clearer what is an editorial addition.
[17:23:30] <CoolHand> inded
[17:23:36] <CoolHand> s/inded/indeed
[17:23:58] <Bytram> did you notice there are two story subs with NO author?
[17:24:05] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org!
[17:24:07] <Bytram> and
[17:24:12] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org
[17:24:12] <CoolHand> I saw one
[17:24:23] <CoolHand> yep, see them both now
[17:24:40] <CoolHand> i looked at the free app one last night.. hadn't really looked at great lakes one yet
[17:40:47] <CoolHand> Bytram: I'm gonna blockquote the Microfish story.. it's a copy of 1st paragraphs of story (except there is one "a" left out of the first sentence - I'll put it back in)
[17:41:23] <Bytram> k, ISTR I removed the 'a' as it was not gramattically correct? might need a [<em>sic</em>] there.
[17:41:45] <CoolHand> true
[17:42:47] <CoolHand> updated
[17:43:41] * Bytram goes to look
[17:48:40] <Bytram> looks good, fwiw, I added some commas when I first reviewed it as it was necessary to disambiguate compound items from individual list items.
[17:48:57] <Bytram> look at the orig submission and you'll see. no biggie, but wanted to point it out, anyway
[17:49:10] <CoolHand> yeah... whatever works for you... it's your name on it... :)
[17:49:17] <Bytram> =)
[17:50:07] <Bytram> I struggle to think it's necessary that I'd need to use [,] to indicate my corrections.
[17:52:12] * Bytram needs food and a nap
[17:52:32] <Bytram> might be back later, but at least the story queue is good for a while
[17:52:33] <CoolHand> yeah.. I think *technically* probably should, but really doubt anyone notices..
[17:52:41] <CoolHand> yep, good work dude

[17:55:08] <Bytram> http://phys.org
