[01:38:40] <takyon> hi
[01:38:50] <Bytram> I'm feeling good, and thought I'd share a little!
[01:38:55] <Bytram> Tachyon: hey! How's things?
[01:39:21] <takyon> m8 who dat
[01:39:51] <Bytram> huh?
[01:39:59] <Bytram> I'm an editor here, same as you!
[01:40:20] <Bytram> this might make an interesting story, once I get the tracking junk out of the URL: http://feeds.wired.com
[01:40:26] <Schwifty> ^ 03Watch the Next Three Astronauts Launch to the ISS | WIRED ( http://www.wired.com )
[01:40:37] <Bytram> thanks Schwifty!
[01:42:38] <takyon> I definitely read it as ISIS
[01:42:59] <takyon> much like you typed Tachyon earlier
[01:43:01] <Bytram> *chuckle*
[01:43:27] <Bytram> oops. ta<tab> tends to grab the wrong one
[01:43:45] <takyon> you can watch NASA TV’s live broadcast of the launch above, starting at 11:45 pm EDT tonight.
[01:43:50] <takyon> so 2 hours from now
[01:44:01] <Bytram> what's that, two hours from now?
[01:44:02] <takyon> should we throw it in as breaking news? (with a link directly to NASA TV)
[01:44:17] <Bytram> what's currently in the queue?
[01:44:19] * Bytram goes to take a look
[01:44:25] <takyon> stuff
[01:44:42] <takyon> I don't bother moving stuff around if there's a breaking news story
[01:45:08] <Bytram> next story is "New Study Maps the Web's Shadiest "Neighborhoods""
[01:45:14] <Bytram> and is due out in 15 minutes.
[01:45:30] <takyon> i'll put it in for 45 minutes from now
[01:45:30] <Bytram> Might be worth doing... I'm sure there's some space buffs on the site.
[01:45:54] <Bytram> I know if I had a faster connection, *I* would be watching it.
[01:46:08] <Bytram> also, on the USA west coast, that would be only 8:45 PM
[01:47:26] <Bytram> takyon: I don't see any reason to wait... once you got it ready, let me know; I'l 2nd it; and we can let it fly.
[01:47:38] <takyon> ye
[01:48:28] * Bytram commences to 2nd the stories in the queue
[01:56:48] <takyon> done
[01:58:17] <Bytram> on my way
[02:03:07] <Bytram> done!
[02:03:44] <Bytram> I changed the NASA TV reference to indicate it was live, and I moved the time to be a bit earlier. otherwise, no changes!

[02:10:30] <Bytram> http://go.theregister.com
[02:10:31] <Schwifty> ^ 03Intel goes public with full Skylake lineup • The Register ( http://www.theregister.co.uk )
[02:11:43] <takyon> that might be the final piece of the puzzle for the merge I've had stinking around for ages
[02:11:49] <takyon> but I don't think it is the mobile SKUs
[02:12:08] <takyon> oh it is
[02:12:12] <takyon> I guess I will finalize it
[02:12:15] <Bytram> https://regmedia.co.uk
[03:01:14] <Bytram|sleepin> before I go, I just noticed this story in the #rss-bot channel:
[03:01:14] <Bytram|sleepin> http://phys.org
[03:01:20] <Schwifty> ^ 03Brazilian wasp venom kills cancer cells by opening them up
[03:01:43] <Bytram|sleepin> see also: http://dx.doi.org
[03:01:56] <Bytram|sleepin> and, with that, have a good night everybody!
[16:11:54] <CoolHand> anybody around?
[16:26:06] <CoolHand> anybody know how I can get a link with a filename with spaces in it to work when posting story? I use %20's which work with the URL when I use it, but it strips them out when I post the story.. http://www.dni.gov
[19:31:17] <cmn32480> coolhand - AFAIK the link about ought to work.

[21:12:19] <cmn32480> is OK... we have people who can fix that
[21:13:08] <FrogBlast> Huzzah!
[21:18:53] <cmn32480> I am sending an email to the senior editors letting them know you are interested.
[21:19:42] <cmn32480> I believe that the guys who handle the mail server username/pwd are audioguy and mechanicjay. As such I have pinged mj in #soylent.
[21:21:02] <FrogBlast> Thanks!
[21:21:50] <cmn32480> I am not ObiWan and shall not take you on as a Padawan.
[21:23:20] <cmn32480> I, for one, am glad to have you back on board, and look forward to your idle hands being put to good use. :-)
[21:23:34] <cmn32480> we've been in need of editors all summer
[21:24:04] <cmn32480> it's especially tough when people are on vacation
[21:25:36] <cmn32480> in truth, the eds we have are a really good crew. everybody pitches in what they can, and we all catch each others mistakes

[21:28:49] <cmn32480> Frogblast is the prodigal son

[21:28:59] <cmn32480> he has returned, as is looking to become an editor
[21:29:17] <cmn32480> he already has a SN.org email, but does not know the password
[21:29:31] <cmn32480> that somethign you fix?
[21:29:40] <FrogBlast> Howdy!
[21:29:43] <mechanicjay> trivial
[21:30:05] <cmn32480> if it was trivial... I'd do it, but alas... I am but a lowly editor
[21:30:37] <cmn32480> you, mechanicjay, are a mighty sysadmin!
[21:31:13] <mechanicjay> a might sysadmin who can't remember his admin passwords
[21:31:16] <mechanicjay> :(
[21:31:18] * cmn32480 swears he hasn't been drinking... but the idea has some promise
[21:32:09] <cmn32480> they have programs for that...
[21:32:47] <mechanicjay> Yeah, got it, but it's not right...grumble gruble -- give me a few minutes.
