[04:05:49] <cmn32480> Bytram !! - you missed me. But Iappreciate it nonetheless.
[04:05:59] <cmn32480> I JUST got to my hotel
[04:06:12] <cmn32480> yeeesh. What a long ass day
[04:29:39] <cmn32480> running Arthur... the queue is looking pretty deserted.
[04:29:52] <cmn32480> I wish it was desserted.... that'd be fun

[11:26:17] <chromas> that's weird. is my net being 'censored'?
[11:30:15] <Bytram> no, the original page is down (I'm reviewing a story submission)
[11:30:31] <Bytram> so I was looking for another way to look at the material in some form,
[11:31:02] <Bytram> and to do so without putting up a big 'look-at-me' sign on me
[11:31:13] <Bytram> chilling effects, indeed

[11:31:20] <Schwifty> ^ 03Terror law prompts British Library to reject unique Taliban archive | World news | The Guardian
[11:31:56] <Bytram> sadly, there's nothing in that article that I saw that allows me to search on included text and find out where else it might be available
[11:32:27] <Bytram> any ideas on how to locate that URL in google's cache?

[11:33:10] <Bytram> seems like the entire site is down
[11:34:01] <Bytram> hrrm...
[11:34:14] <Bytram> I really don't want to click that link
[11:34:15] <CoolHand> confirmed here
[11:34:30] <Bytram> ok, does it require javascript
[11:34:32] <Bytram> ?
[11:34:44] <chromas> it's a bing cache
[11:34:50] <chromas> couldn't find it on google
[11:34:53] <CoolHand> i clicked on the main link
[11:35:05] <Bytram> I gathered that; I avoid MS and thus bing
[11:35:11] <CoolHand> it 404'ed (and now I"m on a list somewhere)
[11:35:29] <Bytram> yeah, I poked at it from in here.
[11:35:40] <chromas> if you're not on a list by now, you're probably on a list
[11:37:51] <Bytram> chromas: just a quick thanks to you and your headline-grabbing, URL-redirection-following bot.
[11:38:24] <Bytram> I despise tracking URLs and just popping in here, pasting a URL, and seeing where it goes and getting the title is a HUGE WIN for me!

[11:38:45] <chromas> you're welcome. thanks for the kamas :D
[11:38:54] <Bytram> kama kamelion?
[11:38:57] <chromas> s/am/arm/
[11:40:12] <Bytram> oh, this is TOO rich!
[11:40:47] <Bytram> it just happens that the previously last story was scheduled for 16:22 UTC, and with an inter-story gap of about 90 minutes...
[11:41:07] <Bytram> I couldn't resist scheduling the taliban story to go out at.... 18:12 UTC =)
[11:41:29] * Bytram queues Tchaichovsky
[11:41:53] <CoolHand> think anyone will notice?
[11:42:37] <Bytram> I doubt it; few are in UTC, so they won't even see it and the reality is that most people don't even notice the 'dept' line!
[11:42:50] <CoolHand> haha, true dat
[11:43:50] <Bytram> now, if *ahem* someone *ahem* were to make an anonymous comment... *cough* *cough* =)
[11:44:09] <CoolHand> haha
[11:44:51] <Bytram> I wonder if they fixed that bug where we were previously able to comment on a story before it went live, and then were no longer able to do so?
[11:45:07] <Bytram> it's not appropriate in this case, but just a note for future reference
[11:46:04] <CoolHand> I was thinking they did, but don't hold me to that
[11:46:29] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:23:28] <cmn32480> sorry guys... I fell asleep at the keyboard last night
[12:23:37] <cmn32480> didn't get anythign pushied in from Arthur
[12:27:42] <Bytram> np
[12:27:51] <Bytram> sleeping is good!
[12:28:09] <Bytram> and addictive! I've tried to give it up, but I always seem to go back to it.
[12:28:19] <cmn32480> have a good day Bytram!
[12:28:24] <cmn32480> Bytram !!
[12:28:30] <cmn32480> just ;cuz!
[12:28:41] <Bytram> we'll be fine... the community seems to fill in when there's enough about and they see the nagger getting low
[12:28:50] <Bytram> cmn32480: !! !! !! !
[12:28:52] <Bytram> =)
[12:29:04] <cmn32480> I'll see what I can conjuor up at lunch...

[13:47:06] <Phoenix666> Hi guys, I wanted to poke my head in and say I hit 'submit' a little too quickly on the Netflix story. The title should be, "Netflix Takes Gamble With Epix Film Cull in US," not "Netflix Takes Gamble With Epix Film Cull in Us"
