[01:54:58] <Bytram> all yours... take a look at what I added at the end.
[01:55:05] <Bytram> keep or strike at your pleasure.
[01:56:01] <Bytram> just trying to point out that something that happened nearly 5 MONTHS ago is still ongoing, along with a bit of a personal touch.
[01:56:14] <takyon> edited
[01:56:19] <Bytram> up to you if you want to delete/edit/remove
[01:56:21] <Bytram> k
[01:56:28] <takyon> i wonder if it's true though
[01:56:36] <takyon> probably tiny earthquakes
[01:56:46] <Bytram> mag 6
[01:56:54] <Bytram> that's what she told me
[01:57:22] <Bytram> I've been in a couple 5+ quakes and a 6 (I think) and it was VERY disturbing.
[01:57:55] <Bytram> problem is, when it starts, you have no way of knowing if it's just a 6, or it's only getting started on its way to something MUCH worse.
[01:58:14] <Bytram> teamwork++
[01:58:14] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 24
[01:58:24] <Bytram> two dozen? nice!
[02:00:49] * Bytram just revised closing Nepal comment; less informal
[02:02:19] <Bytram> taking a break; biab
[02:02:32] <takyon> cool
[02:03:34] <Bytram> not gone yet...
[02:03:44] <Bytram> Just want to say that was FUN!
[02:05:14] <Bytram> I really like how things fell into place, how we worked together to get sources, you caught my quick-n-dirty mistakes and we got it out in LESS THAN A HALF HOUR!
[02:06:01] <Bytram> well, 32 minutes, but who's counting? =)
[02:06:07] <Bytram> anyway, break time. biab
[02:20:42] <Bytram> back
[02:21:54] <Deucalion> 32 minutes is less than half an hour if one allows for interruptions! see 2+2 can =5 :D
[02:22:21] <Bytram> ROLF!
[02:22:51] <Deucalion> Good job sleuthing that editing display quirk thingamy btw Bytram
[02:22:53] <Bytram> INT a = 2.6, b = 2.7 c; c = a + b;
[02:23:04] <Bytram> many thanks!
[02:23:53] <Bytram> another clue was that the controls worked just find on the staff site, but that was before the editors' notes capabilities were added to the code... gave me another window into what was going on.
[02:24:28] <Deucalion> a veritable Sherlock!

[13:00:10] zz_janrinok is now known as janrinok
[13:03:33] <janrinok> hi guys
[13:03:55] <janrinok> TheMightyBuzzard: thx for the fix TMB
[13:04:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> yar
[13:05:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> would have done it yesterday but for some reason i was just tired like all day. ready to go back to bed at like 9am.
[13:05:51] <janrinok> did you buy everything you needed yesterday?
[13:08:00] <janrinok> Bytram: takyon: good team effort on the Chilean earthquake story - that went out quickly
[13:11:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, i think so except i'm gonna hafta build a damper for the blower since we're gonna be using the exhaust of a shop vac and that's way too much air for a bitsy little furnace.
[13:11:46] <janrinok> or run it through a system of pipes that can dump part/almost all of the flow
[13:12:29] <janrinok> I simple Y-gate would do the job - says the man who has never actually done it!
[13:12:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> likely just going to make a box out of cardboard with holes just dumping air as well as one to the pipe supplying it to the furnace.
[13:13:18] <janrinok> there you go, my solution was over-engineered!
[13:14:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> now for some breakfast then a gerzillion dishes.
[13:14:46] <janrinok> good luck!
[13:15:04] * janrinok looks up gerzillion, is it more than a google?
[13:26:03] <cmn32480|sleepin> janrinok !!

[13:26:13] <janrinok> cmn32480: !!
[13:26:22] <cmn32480> how goes it good sir?
[13:27:04] <janrinok> not bad, but the reason for delay in S's return two days ago was the one thing we both avoided saying....
[13:27:26] <cmn32480> ugh
[13:27:48] <cmn32480> I saw somthgin in the backscroll about surgery?
[13:28:21] <janrinok> but we are both being positive about things - even joking a lot today. Yeah, she requires major surgery sometime in the next few months, with a 2 week stay in hospital.
[13:31:48] <janrinok> how's things at your end?
[14:10:08] <Bytram> cmn32480: !!
[14:10:10] <Bytram> janrinok: !!
[14:10:15] <Bytram> g'morning gang!
[14:10:29] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: thanks for pushing in the Editors' Notes fix!
[14:10:32] <cmn32480> Byt\ram !!!
[14:10:36] <cmn32480> Bytram !!!
[14:10:43] * Bytram needs to figure out how to make a branch on github
[14:10:46] <Bytram> lol
[14:10:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, just edited the live template from the admin menu. it won't survive a server bounce.
[14:11:09] <Bytram> janrinok: congrats on making it to 2200 stories! https://soylentnews.org
[14:11:10] <Schwifty> ^✓ 03SoylentNews: Authors
[14:11:13] <cmn32480> janrinok - sorry for disappearing... something came up here in the office.
[14:11:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, you want a fork not a branch i think
[14:11:29] <Bytram> oh, yeah. that's what I meant.
[14:11:42] * Bytram looks around and finds only spoons. :P
[14:12:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> go to https://github.com and hit the word Fork over on the topish right
[14:12:02] <Schwifty> ^ 03SoylentNews/rehash · GitHub
[14:12:09] <cmn32480> use a knife... at least they are pointy and let you stab the code it if goes wrong
[14:13:28] * Bytram channels Crocodile Dundee -- you call THAT a knife?
[14:13:55] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: okay, I clicked the Frok thingee
[14:14:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> now click your picture and hit view profile
[14:14:36] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: Did you submit a change for the fix, too?
[14:14:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> not yet but it's rolled into my rejection reason fix
[14:15:02] <Bytram> k
[14:15:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> not ready for a pull request on that yet though.
[14:15:26] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:17:19] <Bytram> okay, I'm on my profile... clicked on Repositories tab; see: 'rehash' and 'slashcode'
[14:17:37] * Bytram clicks 'rehash'
[14:18:00] <Bytram> hmmm, maybe I should install git?
[14:18:19] <Bytram> now where or where could I get git? ;)
[14:19:49] <Bytram> this looks promising: https://github.com
[14:19:50] <Schwifty> ^ 03Releases · git-for-windows/git · GitHub
[14:20:17] <cmn32480> that is probably where you git it
[14:20:39] <Bytram> not the clearest documentation -- I think I'll git lost
[14:20:59] <cmn32480> you are used to people telling you to git loast by now I shoudl think
[14:22:16] <Bytram> lol
[14:24:26] <janrinok> Bytram: !!
[14:24:43] <Bytram> janrinok: Hi! Sorry to hear about S; both of you are in my prayers.
[14:24:57] <cmn32480> ^^ditto
[14:25:04] <janrinok> np but thanks very much for the thought. We're doing OK, still laughing!
[14:25:10] <Bytram> YAY!
[14:25:18] <cmn32480> laughter is good.
[14:25:28] <janrinok> and its cheap too
[14:25:30] <cmn32480> worst case, you can tell bytram to git lost
[14:25:36] <Bytram> did you notice that you just hit 2200 stories published
[14:25:38] <janrinok> ah - a nerd joke
[14:25:52] <janrinok> nope - but :) anyway
[14:25:55] <cmn32480> and it even makes sense if you read the last 10 lines or so of backscroll
[14:26:01] <Bytram> when I was in college, we spelled it 'knurd'
[14:26:15] <Bytram> read it backwards. =)
[14:26:15] <janrinok> I had just finished backreading so the joke was very timely
[14:26:33] * Bytram can read and write in all four directions
[14:26:50] * Bytram is looking for a 'git for dummies' site
[14:26:58] <Bytram> but that would be redundant, methinks
[14:27:03] <Bytram> ;)
[14:27:04] <janrinok> I think you are on it!
[14:27:58] <janrinok> what exactly do you want to do once you have installed git?
[14:28:38] <Bytram> fix things
[14:28:43] <janrinok> ho ho ho
[14:28:43] <Bytram> doh.
[14:28:57] <janrinok> and that is NOT my Santa laugh
[14:29:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, yeah there's a brand new git releast out today even.
[14:29:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> release even
[14:29:29] <Bytram> well, after figuring out how to get past that Editors' Notes bug, I wanted to code it up and submit it... but didn't know how/where to begin.
[14:29:41] <Bytram> nice
[14:30:18] <cmn32480> you git to be kidding me. A new release today??
[14:30:25] <janrinok> I'm not sure how dev use it - but I suppose you could checkout the current HEAD and look for the file in there. Or just checkout the 1 file and work on that
[14:30:29] * cmn32480 beats on a dead horse
[14:30:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, it's already included in the reject reason branch i'm working on. would cause a complex merge if you submitted a pull request as well.
[14:30:46] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:31:03] <Bytram> I'm just explaining my motivation for wanting to be able to use git to submit my own fixes.
[14:31:43] <cmn32480> maybe TMB can git you set up with a dev vm
[14:31:47] * cmn32480 ducks
[14:31:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> helpful tip here: always create a branch on your repo to make changes. if you work from master it will make shit complicated and cause you downtime where you can't work on anything else until your last pull request is merged.
[14:32:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, I fucking wish. I don't even have one.
[14:32:50] <Bytram> phone
[14:32:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> My from scratch skills aren't up to building a working site apparently and nobody else has time.
[14:32:54] <Bytram> telemarketer
[14:33:07] <Bytram> np
[14:33:50] <Bytram> it just hit me that I can't be the first person who wants to do this; right at the root of https://github.com is a 4-step 'GitHub Bootcamp' intro.
[14:33:51] <Schwifty> ^ 03GitHub · Where software is built
[14:34:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> heh
[14:34:33] <Bytram> so, if I am understanding correctly, I should make a branch off the fork I just made?
[14:34:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> once you have something you want fixed, yes
[14:34:52] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:35:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> i name them after what i'm doing so i know when i can delete them
[14:35:20] <Bytram> nodnod
[14:35:46] <Bytram> hmmm, do I actually need to install git locally or can I do everything off of github?
[14:36:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> well you can technically work off github but it's a lot easier to work locally for me.
[14:36:20] <janrinok> you need to install git on your machine
[14:36:46] <Bytram> yeah, understood. it's nice to be able to do stuff like: grep -R
[14:36:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> zactly
[14:37:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> but you mean -r
[14:37:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> -rIHn especially
[14:37:30] <janrinok> I found working remotely very frustrating - but then again, I'm not particularly adept at git
[14:37:36] <cmn32480> and if it keeps a copy of your repo, it SHOULD allow you to work completly offline, exspecially important given your bandwidth contraints.
[14:37:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> ^^
[14:37:53] <janrinok> good point
[14:37:55] <Bytram> chromas: after the intial D/L of course.
[14:38:13] <janrinok> I think you meant cmn32480 ...
[14:38:29] <janrinok> but that should have ping chromy anyway :)
[14:38:34] <janrinok> pinged*
[14:38:36] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: yeah; the version of grep I have says that '-R' and 'r' do the same thing. lowercase is easier to type; thanks for the hint!
[14:38:43] <Bytram> ugh.
[14:38:53] <Bytram> c<tab> ain't what I thought it was.
[14:39:00] <cmn32480> he's jsut higher in the alphabet then me.... it's ok
[14:39:16] <cmn32480> for me you ahve to use cm<tab>

[14:39:44] <janrinok> I never plug my speakers in, so I wouldn't know

[14:40:46] <cmn32480> heh.... I did that a a woman at work once... I knwew she had an AV detection that was going to show up, and I turned her speakers ALL THE WAY UP. IT gave the red alert sound from Star Trek. scared the crap out of her
[14:41:13] <Bytram> ROFLMAO!!!!!!!
[14:41:17] <janrinok> you have a weird sense of humour - I like that
[14:41:37] <cmn32480> they had to pick both of us off the floor
[14:41:41] <Bytram> hmm, do you have a link to the .wav file or the like?
[14:41:51] <cmn32480> her because it scared her... me becasue I was laughing so hard
[14:42:12] <cmn32480> most likely... but this was 10+ years ago
[14:42:44] <janrinok> well, all of us, I suppose. We are all giggling like schoolkids

[14:44:06] <janrinok> I nearly clicked that - and then remembered that I don't have speakers plugged in. I'm having a slow brain day (again)
[14:45:02] <Bytram> lol
[14:45:44] <Bytram> hmmm, they need someone to do QA. The 'ogg' link for 'Red alert' points to: http://www.mediacollege.com
[14:45:51] <Bytram> ooops.
[15:00:48] <Bytram> do you have no built-in speakers? Or do you also have your volume control set to Mute
[15:01:47] <janrinok> no built in speakers, the speakers in my monitor are not connected. I have a headset, but don't both switching it from whatever computer I used last to the one I'm using currently.
[15:02:48] <Bytram> ahhh. got it.
[15:03:38] <Bytram> i can't imagine using my machine without sound... it's a nice way to provide testing/debugging informaiton out-of-band from normal IO
[15:04:05] <janrinok> I think S would quickly get annoyed if my computers made noises as well!
[15:04:09] <cmn32480> maybe janrionk is scared by loud noises...
[15:04:47] <Bytram> janrinok: BOO!
[15:05:00] <Bytram> we'll see! =)
[15:05:01] * cmn32480 screams like a girls

[15:08:16] <Bytram> nah... I'm procrastinating from what I should really be doing.
[15:08:21] <janrinok> lol
[15:08:24] <cmn32480> it is kinda fun, but the neighbors might wonder
[15:08:39] <janrinok> I used to procrastinate, but now I just put it off
[15:09:07] <Bytram> it's an absolutely GORGEOUS day out, I was expecting a delivery from UPS this AM and it just arrived so I can now get going about my day.

[16:55:21] <Bytram> oh, k. brb
[16:57:17] <Bytram> fyi, the proper name of the paper is: "The New York Times", and I generally try to use italics when identifying the name of a publication (helps to make clear where the 'the' goes)
[16:57:40] <cmn32480> OK. you wnat to make the cahnge or shall I?
[16:57:51] <Bytram> i've changed it.
[16:57:57] <cmn32480> exacellent.
[16:57:59] <cmn32480> thx
[16:58:00] <Bytram> have you changed anything since you pinged us?
[16:58:05] <cmn32480> nope
[16:58:08] <Bytram> k
[16:58:35] <Bytram> changing '40 years' to be 'Forty years'
[16:58:36] <cmn32480> put it in the queue adn pinged and waited.. it did take a whole 3 minutes for you to respond
[16:58:45] <Bytram> phhhhbbbbt

[16:59:42] <Bytram> i was in the middle of something important - sudoku and I play against the clock. ;)
[17:00:11] <Bytram> ummm, wait a minute.. 40 years? when are they counting from?
[17:00:16] <Bytram> 1975?
[17:00:35] <Bytram> computers have been in general use from much earlier than THAT!
[17:01:11] * Bytram changs "forty years" to "decades"
[17:01:13] <cmn32480> but the information age pretty well started in the mid-late 70's... from what I have read in the history books
[17:02:44] <Bytram> CP/M boxes were readily available in the late 70's yes. But mainframes were in general use earlier than that... 1960's
[17:03:12] <Bytram> using 'decacdes' catches the gist of the idea without our getting nailed for an unintended detail.
[17:05:34] <Bytram> looks good! One thing though, and I am at a loss on how to do this... who opined what in the closing commentary?
[17:05:51] <Bytram> one query is from the p666 and the other is from mendax
[17:06:54] <Bytram> ahhh, leave it a bit ambiguous. If they really want to know, they can check the original submissions.

[17:49:20] <cmn32480> (Shit on a Shingle aka Creamed Chipped Beef)
[17:49:37] <janrinok> well, usually Thursday is pizza day - with no work involved for me whatsoever. But the pizza shop is closed for 2 weeks as it is now the end of the tourist season. So I made my own pizzas from scratch - and very nice they were too.
[17:50:12] <cmn32480> wooooo.... you use the THC yeast to make the dough rise?

[17:51:17] <cmn32480> and you are already hungry again?
[17:51:36] * janrinok notes that S actually does take morphine every day, but it is a new kick for him :)
[17:52:05] <cmn32480> different kind of kick
[17:52:32] <janrinok> I'll take your word for it - don't do any drugs, never have, don't suppose I will
[17:52:45] <janrinok> well, non-prescription drugs that is
[17:55:11] <janrinok> I made enough for 3 people, but you didn't turn up so we ate your share - sry
[17:55:33] <cmn32480> :-(
[17:55:46] <janrinok> at least I was honest and told you
[17:55:50] <cmn32480> certainly you have done non-prescriptive drugs
[17:56:11] <cmn32480> ever take Ibuprofen? Or Acetomeniphene?
[17:56:12] <Bytram> not I
[17:56:22] <Bytram> oh, those yes.
[17:56:30] <Bytram> recreational, nope.
[17:56:33] <cmn32480> that woudl be a non-prescriptive drug
[17:56:44] <janrinok> OK, I'll bite. Aspirin is prescribed for me, Ibuprofen is a big No-No
[17:56:44] <cmn32480> That isn't what you said
[17:57:09] <cmn32480> and that beer in your hand... prescribed as well?
[17:57:25] * cmn32480 notes that he is being a pedantic jackass
[17:57:27] <janrinok> its not a drug - it's pure pleasure :)
[17:58:23] * cmn32480 agrees begrudgingly
[17:59:17] * Bytram dons pedantic hat
[17:59:44] <Bytram> but during prohibition, doctors could get all the alcohol they wanted for medicinal purposes
[18:00:14] <Bytram> further, one CAN overdose on alcohol... ever hear of a Detox? De-toxification.
[18:00:22] * Bytram doffs hat
[18:00:38] * Bytram hasn't had a drink in over two decades
[18:01:02] <janrinok> one can overdose on water...
[18:01:17] <Bytram> that's true!
[18:02:17] <Bytram> ISTR there was a 'Hold your wee for a Wii' contest where a nurse called in to caution them, and yet someone still, umm, not sure... died? Got terribly sick? don't remember
[18:02:25] <janrinok> hows your 1. git installation going? 2. your UPS delivery unpacking? 3. Your bug hunting going?
[18:03:08] <janrinok> Bytram: yep, I vaguely recall the same story. Someone was admitted to hospital if I remember correctly
[18:04:04] <Bytram> 1.) Ima gonna wait for now. 2.) just some new checks, no hurry. 3.) Not much atm... though I did report a problem with creating a new nick on the staff site where I did not get the email with my password... so i created the account but I cannot access it.

[18:05:59] <janrinok> the things some people do. I've even heard of a group of geeks who run a tech news site and spend hours chatting to each other via their computers - but I think that story is a bit far-fetched
[18:09:06] <Bytram> Yeah, I hear the chats reach all over the globe! Can you *imagine* that? Geeesh!
[18:09:50] <janrinok> well, that's obviously bullshit, who's got that much time to waste?
[18:11:36] <Bytram> not me!
[18:13:44] <janrinok> it's only when one has this kind of conversation that one can see the funny side of what we do

[18:30:31] <Bytram> janrinok: I've been trying to keepup with 2nding your stories...
[18:30:42] <Bytram> two quick things...
[18:31:06] <Bytram> when referring to the name of a publication, I would suggest we use italics to set it off from the rest of the text
[18:32:22] <Bytram> It removes confusion when referring to, for example, "<em>The New York Times</em>" and "The <em>Washington Post</em>"
[18:32:54] <cmn32480> freaking nerds wasting their (supposedly work) day chatting with other nerds....
[18:33:02] <cmn32480> hehehe.. I'm getting paid right now!
[18:33:06] <Bytram> also, if you could, I'd ask that when arthur auto submits a story, that the story text be presented within: <blockquote> ... </blockquote> tags
[18:33:46] <Bytram> not a work day for me, though I do have errands to run... just finished lunch and is time for a nap.
[18:35:41] <Bytram> HEY! I just noticed there's a gap in the story queue from 6:31 to 10:07 -- not sure if that's intentional or not, but that's a long time to go without a story.
[18:36:21] <cmn32480> pull the last story inot the gapp
