[13:59:59] <janrinok> cmn32480: !!
[14:00:36] <cmn32480> how goes it my friend?
[14:00:49] <janrinok> OK with us thx, and at your end?
[14:01:03] <cmn32480> pretty good
[14:01:13] <cmn32480> no major catastrophes
[14:01:21] <janrinok> its early yet ...
[14:01:35] <cmn32480> i was _trying_ to be positive about it
[14:01:51] <janrinok> and succeeding - it was me being v neg
[14:10:35] <janrinok> having a late cup of tea - just had a visit from a nice lady who is looking at the support that S receives from the community. Seemed a bit taken aback when she found out that I do everything, other than 2 nurse visits a day. Not sure what the outcome will be...
[14:10:59] <cmn32480> possibly extra hands to help you?
[14:11:22] <janrinok> could be, I wonder if they want to be editors?
[14:11:42] <cmn32480> been taking her meds again have you?
[14:11:49] * janrinok suspects that sort of help isn't in her plans at the moment
[14:12:04] <janrinok> I've doubled her dose too - I feel great!
[14:12:22] <cmn32480> I'm surprised you aren't sleepy!
[14:13:21] <janrinok> I am, but at the moment I'm sat on the ceiling wondering how to get down to the bed
[14:13:43] <cmn32480> damn gravity
[14:14:00] <janrinok> smacks a bit like another SN community member who shall remain nameless...
[14:15:06] <janrinok> looks like you and I are carrying most of the load at the moment.
[14:16:35] <janrinok> I'm not too keen on gewg_'s marjuana story - it comes up fairly regularly and I'm not sure that there is anything _new_ to be said. It will probably just repeat what has been said many times before.
[14:17:14] <janrinok> but if someone else wants to run with it, I'm happy to let them
[14:27:21] <janrinok> cmn32480: I looking at implementing a web-based editor for Arthur so that the user can scan the stories, do some preparatory editing, and submit them from a web page.
[14:27:52] <cmn32480> otp w/ a customer brbr
[14:28:03] <janrinok> Haven't used HTML much so it is a voyage into the unknown

[14:31:30] <cmn32480> I'd bin the google story
[14:31:38] <cmn32480> *gewg_
[14:31:46] <janrinok> you were saying that there are no catastrophies - then the phone calls begin...
[14:31:51] <cmn32480> basically
[14:32:58] <cmn32480> it's the usualy.. thought I will be taking support calls, which is a bit unusual these days becasue we have some people out
[14:33:20] <janrinok> well, if anyone downloads the link and makes a story out of it I don't see a problem.
[14:33:36] <cmn32480> not too worried about it
[14:33:52] <cmn32480> coolhand is in the earthquake story it looks like

[14:34:51] <janrinok> yes, I heard him mention it a few days back. Just as we were saying yesterday, we do what we can, when we can. There is not much more that can be done
