[02:12:58] <cmn32480> heh... Coolhad stole my dept line!
[02:13:06] <cmn32480> mmmmmm-pie!
[02:13:15] <cmn32480> I think I used that last week
[02:13:54] <Bytram> minor formatting changes (removed two hyphens dis-covering and man-dibles; slight change to opening sentence to remove inappropriate elipsis
[02:13:56] <Bytram> )
[02:14:09] <Bytram> saved
[02:14:26] * Bytram laods less-than-lethal story
[02:14:38] <cmn32480> I just finished that one
[02:14:50] <cmn32480> I hit update as you loaded it
[02:15:12] <Bytram> oh, k
[02:15:38] <takyon> hohoh 3 stories in a row
[02:15:48] <Bytram> btw, I don't recall offhand, but I couldn't come up with a dept on one of my stories
[02:16:01] * Bytram goes to find out
[02:16:05] <cmn32480> netflix
[02:16:08] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:16:21] <Bytram> I did notice a water theme: torrent, leak, and watermark
[02:16:28] <Bytram> but coldn't do anything with it
[02:17:03] <cmn32480> I was thinking "how many pixels in your display"
[02:17:18] <takyon> watermark?
[02:17:22] <cmn32480> yeah
[02:17:28] <cmn32480> the stream has a watermark in it
[02:17:36] <cmn32480> so they can figure out who priated it
[02:17:43] <takyon> I was thinking of the third story
[02:17:47] <takyon> tear gas!
[02:17:56] <cmn32480> it is in the agreement between Sony and Netflix, according to the summary
[02:18:09] <cmn32480> Leaked drafts of the 4K copy protection agreement between Sony and Netflix reveals that the streams are generally well-protected. They also include a watermark so that leaks can be traced back to the source. "The watermark must contain sufficient information such that forensic analysis of unauthorized recorded video clips of the output video shall uniquely determine the account to which the output video was delivered," the document
[02:18:09] <cmn32480> reads.
[02:18:19] <takyon> <takyon> I was thinking of the third story
[02:18:32] <takyon> trifecta
[02:18:55] <cmn32480> you write a good summary
[02:19:05] <cmn32480> and choose interesting stuff
[02:19:09] <Bytram> I certainly agree!

[02:20:39] <cmn32480> art
[02:20:41] <cmn32480> gold
[02:20:42] <Bytram> there is a concern that it may be booby-trapped?
[02:20:47] <cmn32480> of course
[02:20:49] <takyon> there is, yes
[02:21:27] <Bytram> what kind of shape would explosives be after all this time?
[02:21:35] <cmn32480> depends
[02:21:43] <cmn32480> if they are synthetic
[02:21:47] <Bytram> unexploded, one would assume
[02:22:05] <cmn32480> probably pretty stable and still volatile as hell
[02:22:10] <takyon> v-2 rocket warheads
[02:22:22] <Bytram> vrooom ... boom!
[02:22:24] <cmn32480> straight TNT? VERY unstable, depending on the water content of the air
[02:22:31] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:22:35] <cmn32480> they find them around here all the time
[02:22:43] <Bytram> oh?

[02:24:09] <cmn32480> bastard won't let me come push the button
[02:24:12] <Bytram> yowza!
[02:24:49] <cmn32480> they find unexploded rounds around some of the islands in the bay once or twice a month
[02:24:55] <Bytram> seeing TNT reminded me of how explosives have lots of "N" in the chemical formulations... which reminded me of this blog: http://pipeline.corante.com
