[02:04:59] <Deucalion> cmn32480|flyin, takyon - what was up with my editing? Not that I think I did any editing, I just sub'd a story. I was on the way to bed and put in in quickly, was it horrific?
[03:46:33] <takyon> dumped a lot of info in the skylake comments, in case anyone cares
[03:47:11] <takyon> what story are you talking about deucalion
[03:48:10] <Deucalion> takyon, I only sub'd one in recent days. The Win 10 privacy one. I was just responding to...
[03:48:29] <Deucalion> <cmn32480> Deucalion - your editing??!?!?!?!?!!eleventy
[03:48:35] <takyon> well I edited it and changed a bunch of the grammar from what you see in the original submission
[03:48:46] <Deucalion> <takyon> grammar check on aisle juggs
[03:48:47] <Deucalion> <takyon> https://soylentnews.org
[03:48:47] <Schwifty> ^✓ 03Error
[03:48:50] <takyon> which you can see by comparing it to orig sub
[03:49:03] <takyon> maybe I didn't complete checking the grammar?
[03:49:09] <takyon> or just wanted a 2nd look
[03:49:14] <takyon> whatever the case it went fine
[03:50:36] <takyon> everyone loved the opportunity to bash MS as you can see from the comments
[03:51:13] <takyon> soemone put an Ars link in there and said it was a more informed article. I haven't checked it outmyself but I might if I end up with a Win10 machine and have to navigate this river of bullshit
[03:51:20] <takyon> I'm more swamped than shrek right now
[03:52:08] <Deucalion> The Ars article is more informative than the El Re one. I had't seen it when I sub'd it if it was even published at that point.
[03:53:16] <Deucalion> I was submitter on that story, not editoring :P
[03:54:36] <takyon> omg at this hamster story
[03:55:34] <takyon> "SixXS" say that six times fast
[03:55:56] <takyon> can't wait for the trolls to bombard this story: https://soylentnews.org

[03:56:09] <Schwifty> ^ 03SN article:  Slower Melting Ice Cream in Pipeline, Thanks to New Ingredient 04(2 comments)
[03:59:25] <Deucalion> Really?
[04:01:22] <takyon> i'm not surprised this innovation exists
[04:01:48] <takyon> it's like the ice cream equivalent of pykrete
[04:01:57] <takyon> https://en.wikipedia.org
[04:01:59] <Schwifty> ^ 03Wiki: Pykrete
[11:17:00] <CoolHand> mmmm... ice cream.... but ice cream starts getting really good as it's melting.. when its really frozen its too hard to eat (and doesn't taste as good imho)

[14:35:00] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:35:35] * Bytram was lucky to have found the site before it went live and somehow get past a reskey bug to get his account when he did
[14:35:52] <Bytram> yeah, I'm a relative oldster at UID 76 =)

[14:36:37] <Bytram> I won't
[14:36:45] <cmn32480> but you could :-)

[14:37:56] <Bytram> LOL!
[14:38:03] <cmn32480> you don't need op to do it
[14:38:21] <Bytram> I'd been holding onto that one for a while and just HAD to get it out of my system!
[14:38:21] <cmn32480> .[command] will work as long as you ahve voice
[14:38:25] <Bytram> k
[14:38:42] <cmn32480> it made me smile
[14:38:48] <cmn32480> Thanks, I needed a good laugh
[14:38:52] <Bytram> wasn't sure, and wanted to be quick enough so that no 'evasive maneuvers' could be taken.
[14:39:06] <Bytram> laughing is good for what ails ya
[14:39:14] <cmn32480> I'm not sure there ARE evasive manuevers for that
[14:39:28] <cmn32480> certainly my fingers aren't fast enough
[14:39:28] <Bytram> unless it's the ale that ails ya, then best to lay low for a while
[14:39:53] <Bytram> I don't know of any, either, but didn't want to waste the opportunity -- element of surprise and all that.
[14:40:03] <cmn32480> lol
[14:40:13] <cmn32480> opportunity is what you make of it
[14:40:15] <Bytram> anyway, 'twas good for a laugh; mission accomplished!
[14:40:30] <cmn32480> this one was most certainly good for a laugh
[14:40:35] <Bytram> yeah... how's it go? the harder I work the luckier I get?
[14:40:41] <Bytram> truce?
[14:40:45] <cmn32480> absolutely!
[14:40:49] <cmn32480> truce
[14:40:59] * Bytram extends hand to shake
[14:41:13] * cmn32480 shakes bytrams had with a joy buzzer
[14:42:13] * Bytram looks surprised but accepts the strange, but apparently friendly, gesture
[14:43:16] * Bytram preemptively goes off to find a Van der Graff static generator
[14:43:47] <Bytram> accepted.
[14:43:54] <Bytram> =)

[14:44:06] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 14
[14:44:45] <Bytram> I had thoughts of going to the beach today, but now I'm so tried, I'm having trouble getting up the motivation.
[14:44:50] <Bytram> s/tried/tire/
[14:44:57] <Bytram> ^^ see!
[14:45:16] <Bytram> I can't even correctly fix my typos!
[14:46:21] <cmn32480> you really are an editor!
[14:47:49] <Bytram> *chuckle*
[14:48:39] <Bytram> I think I'm gonna try a compromise... get a bite to eat, take a nap, and then see about heading to the shore. if I don't do it now, it'll make a whole summer I never made it to the beach and I'll kick myself all winter long!
