[01:12:26] cmn32480|breakinstuf is now known as cmn32480
[01:12:30] <cmn32480> bytram !!
[01:12:50] * Bytram just pushed out 2 stories and, upon their publishing, will have reached 900 stories
[01:12:59] <cmn32480> WOO HOO!
[01:13:15] <cmn32480> twice as good as me... but 9/10ths as good as n1
[01:13:20] <Bytram> btw, I'm gonna try, from now on, to use no more than 5 paragraphs from an "Arthur" submission.
[01:13:36] <cmn32480> 3-5 is a good guide
[01:13:45] <Bytram> nod nod
[01:13:55] <cmn32480> depending on the length of the article
[01:14:09] <Bytram> 5 is my goal for a max; in this case I do think that less is more
[01:14:16] <Bytram> agreed!
[01:14:41] <n1> yup
[01:14:46] <n1> Bytram++
[01:14:46] <Bender> karma - bytram: 14

[01:15:17] * Bytram waits for windows updates to complete downloading
[01:15:24] <cmn32480> hehe
[01:15:37] <cmn32480> ok fellas. time for me to get packed and shut down
[01:15:43] <cmn32480> pleasant dreams.
[01:15:55] <cmn32480> I will check in tomorrow before I get back on the road.
[01:16:05] <cmn32480> back to editing from the hotels!
[01:16:06] <Bytram> cmn32480: after your recent experience at 1Mbps top speed, I'd think you would be best able to appreciate how much of a chore that is.
[01:16:17] <cmn32480> yes sir!
[01:16:31] <cmn32480> try the library.... or the mall at lunch
[01:16:59] <Bytram> that's a possibility, but lunch time isn't long enough to get where I could get a good signal and do anything.
[01:17:35] <cmn32480> ok fellas. be safe. gotta run.
[01:17:47] <cmn32480> oh yes, and pleasant hooters!
[01:17:48] * Bytram works at a mall, but has absolutely no interest in THEIR tracking my browsing -- requires signing up for their portal -- ain't gonna happen.
[01:17:55] <n1> laters cmn32480
[01:17:58] * n1 hat tip
[01:18:02] <Bytram> cmn32480: ta ta!
[01:18:06] cmn32480 is now known as cmn32480|drivin
[01:18:19] <cmn32480|drivin> ta ta... just like hooters, only calssier!
[01:18:38] <Bytram> lol
[01:19:22] cmn32480|drivin is now known as cmn32480|sleepin
[02:54:02] <Bytram> I dunno if anyone else has noticed this... we have a relatively regular contributor who is anonymous except for giving a nick of 'tt' followed by several numbers.
[02:54:28] <Bytram> for example, look at this submission: https://soylentnews.org
[02:54:29] <Schwifty> ^ 03SN Submission by tt0448134: Solar PV Is Unstoppable, and Subsidies Can be Removed Sooner Than Thought

[02:55:03] <Bytram> well, that's a reference to the Internet Movie database!

[02:55:16] <Schwifty> ^ 03Sunshine (2007) - IMDb
[02:55:17] <n1> is that what it is?
[02:55:23] <n1> i've seen that before and wondered
[02:55:45] <Bytram> yuppers! It's checked out on at least the past half dozen stories of his/hers that I've used.
[02:57:53] <n1> thats a nice way of doing it
[02:57:59] <n1> internet points to that person
[02:58:08] <Bytram> a bit of a challenge to look back and search for their submissions, though. :/
[02:58:21] <Bytram> 'that person' ??
[02:58:51] <n1> the submitter, who uses imdb references
[02:59:18] <Bytram> oh? hmmm... !!

[03:01:45] <Schwifty> ^ 03Humans (TV Series 2015– ) - IMDb
[03:02:02] <Bytram> n1: seems to pan out with the ones I could find from that IPID
[03:02:33] <n1> i think you're right
[03:03:31] <Bytram> looks to be that there might be an actual nick associate with that IPID, but IPIDs can change, so not at all certain
[03:06:44] <Bytram> time for me to get some food and sleep.
[03:07:06] <Bytram> n1: nice chatting with you, as always.
[03:07:47] <n1> take care Bytram
[03:07:54] * n1 hat tip
[03:08:04] <n1> always a pleasure to talk
[03:09:08] <Bytram> thanks! and, if memory serves as to your location, you should be quite well ready to 'hit the sack', too!

[13:17:57] <janrinok> hi peeps
[13:47:39] * n1 sigh
[13:47:41] <n1> hey janrinok
[13:50:05] <janrinok> n1: !!
[13:50:20] <janrinok> why the sigh?
[13:51:23] <n1> made the bad decision to read the dailymail story on the '700 british jihadis return from syria'
[13:51:39] <janrinok> I haven't read it
[13:51:40] <n1> a comment endorsing drone strikes within the UK got 300 up votes
[13:52:02] * janrinok sigh
[13:52:07] <n1> the highest rated comment said they should 'all be exterminated'
[13:53:08] <n1> 'take them out but keep it quiet because the do gooders will not like it'
[13:53:36] <n1> someone replied to that with: "if only they took out a few do gooders first, the rest would change their minds"
[13:54:03] <n1> dailymail crowd apparently endorses false-flag ops
[13:55:04] <n1> sorry to go on about this, but this seems to be only getting worse, the rherotic gets more extreme every week it seems
[13:55:19] <cmn32480|sleepin> golly... I'm glad _I_ don't live in such an uncivilized place....
[13:55:23] cmn32480|sleepin is now known as cmn32480
[13:55:42] <cmn32480> laugh. it was a joke
[13:55:53] <n1> i expect the comments, they're not new, except the drone strikes one
[13:56:03] <n1> but the fact they are the most popular comments now, is quite scary
[13:59:33] <n1> "what happened to rules of engagement?" said 'oldman' replied to with: "No doubt oldman is an ISIS supporter. Suck it up oldman!! Your time is coming!!"
[14:00:10] <janrinok> sry - had to help get S in an ambulance for a medical appt
[14:00:16] <janrinok> cmn32480: !!
[14:01:14] <n1> "Give this man a medal and lock up all the conscientious objectors." - 850 upvotes
[14:01:54] <janrinok> and 'oldman' is quite right - but the Govt (or many Govts) are bending the rules more frequently nowadays because they know that there will be no punishment or need to account for actions
[14:02:33] <n1> on drone strikes: "Reading this article in amazement. I must say, it gives me a lovely warm, confident feeling. Jolly good, chaps; keep up the good work. Let's have some more now, don't be shy!"
[14:02:43] * n1 bangs head on desk
[14:03:01] <n1> that one got 1800 upvotes
[14:03:41] <janrinok> how's the video editing going?
[14:04:12] <n1> i got it done yesterday, was just a sample clip - waiting on a response
[14:04:23] <janrinok> are you happy with the result?
[14:04:56] <n1> "why are we only using 10? we should make Syria dark with the shadows of drones...."
[14:05:01] <n1> yeah, i think so
[14:05:19] <n1> i didnt want to spend too much time on it, but i explained that when i sent it to the client
[14:07:34] <janrinok> do you see this as being a significant part of your future business, or a capability that you have should the client ask for it?
[14:08:08] <janrinok> cmn32480: are you in NC yet?
[14:09:01] <cmn32480> nope. leaving around noon Eastern
[14:09:11] <cmn32480> soon as this morass of print jobs finishes
[14:09:25] <janrinok> travel safely - once the morass of print jobs finish :)
[14:09:33] <n1> i have the capability now, i'm expecting only to do it for this client, but as they're currently building 10 properties right now, with 4 finished this year and countless more on the horizon
[14:09:42] <n1> thats enough for me to do really, between the other stuff
[14:09:53] <janrinok> sound good, Nick
[14:10:11] <n1> they have bids floating around on like a hundred different properties from what i know
[14:10:22] <n1> from £200k apartments to £5mil mansions
[14:10:44] <janrinok> in any particular area, or are they all over the UK?
[14:12:45] <n1> mostly in the south east
[14:12:51] <n1> but there are other sites
[14:13:15] <janrinok> so they are well located from your point of view - neat
[14:18:02] <n1> yeah, so far it's been working out quite well, although the sites that are not in the south east are apparently much bigger, so it could get difficult with that
[14:18:50] <janrinok> but presumably by that time you will have a contract with costs in your pocket and be happy to provide the service.
[14:20:01] <n1> i hope so lol
