[00:46:26] cmn32480|out is now known as cmn32480
[00:46:30] <cmn32480> got it takyon
[00:50:33] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[01:23:40] <cmn32480> takyon or Bytram - where do the Atlantic, Boston Globe, and Salon.com fall on the left to right spectrum?
[01:23:55] <cmn32480> I'm looking at the runaway1956 story on zero tolerance
[01:24:09] <takyon> I would call The Atlantic left wing
[01:24:13] <takyon> and Salon.com
[01:24:19] <cmn32480> and I am honestly having seeing if he is being sarcastic
[01:24:32] <cmn32480> foxnews.com is obviously right wing
[01:25:04] <takyon> Boston Globe is slightly left wing
[01:25:31] <cmn32480> cna you pull up the story?>
[01:25:37] <cmn32480> look at the first line
[01:25:45] <Bytram> cmn32480: though I've read stuff in all of 'em (had a subscription for Boston Globe for many years - though that was years ago) I've never really tried to identify left/right in journalism before.
[01:25:57] <takyon> it's a messed up submission
[01:26:01] <Bytram> rreally could not say.
[01:26:07] <cmn32480> the quotes on "news" seem to be calling all 4 of the sources he quotes as suspect
[01:26:46] <takyon> i wouldn't put too much thought into what runaway's thinking here
[01:26:51] <cmn32480> agreed it is a bit screwy, but an interesting topic.
[01:26:53] <takyon> just evaluate the stories themselves
[01:27:30] <cmn32480> fair 'nuff
[01:27:48] <takyon> I can give it some cleanup if you want
[01:27:56] <cmn32480> let me post it first
[01:28:06] <cmn32480> I've got the links edited, and am reading the stories now
[01:28:13] <cmn32480> will let you know when I get it in
[01:28:16] <takyon> k
[01:28:32] <takyon> I think I'll submit a story, it looked epic
[01:28:51] <cmn32480> you mean the clouds covering the moon?
[01:29:37] <takyon> nope, it was the Cas9 replacement for CRISPR
[01:29:39] <takyon> already subbed
[01:29:46] <takyon> there
[01:30:02] <takyon> 's a ton of ICANN related stories though, I should bring those together
[01:32:01] <takyon> there's a lot of it and most of it is El Reg, so I might do it later
[01:36:21] <Deucalion> every other story on El Reg seems to be about ICANN of late... they seem to go through fetishes like that
[01:36:45] <cmn32480> like when we publish graphene stories 3 or 4 times a week?
[01:37:16] <cmn32480> for a while we were, anyway
[01:37:21] <Deucalion> cmn32480, try 3 or 4 times per ~day~
[01:37:44] <cmn32480> somebody shoudl bitch slap the editors about that
[01:38:00] <cmn32480> if I see any I'll let you know!
[01:40:44] <cmn32480> takyon - posted!
[01:42:45] <takyon> there's an ICANN meeting... that's why there are a lot of stories on it
[01:44:11] <takyon> looks ok, feel like making the 4 links a bulleted list
[01:44:14] <takyon> what do you think
[01:44:25] <cmn32480> sounds like a good iead
[01:47:55] * Bytram is gonna head out and take a look at the moon; don't know what time I'll be back.
[01:47:59] <Bytram> afk

[12:25:46] <cmn32480|travelin> greetings from BWI Airport!
[12:33:01] <Bytram> greetings all!
[12:33:42] <cmn32480|travelin> heya bytram
[12:33:48] <Bytram> One of our most prolific submitters replied to a comment I posted on the Star Trek Continues story... volunteering to be an editor.
[12:33:52] <cmn32480|travelin> connection at the airport SUCKS
[12:34:04] <cmn32480|travelin> tried editing a story... took 10 minutes and then timed out
[12:34:17] <Bytram> tempted as I am to keep him in the submission side of things, I think we should at least extend an opportunity for him to follow through.

[12:35:27] <Bytram> here's the text of his comment:
[12:35:28] <Bytram> Though it may strike terror in the hearts of many a Solentil, I can do a stretch as an editor if you guys need a breather. I'm sure there are others who are willing and able to step up, too (I'm looking at you, wonkey_monkey).
[12:35:28] <Bytram> Maybe we should structure editing as tours of duty?
[12:35:28] <Bytram> Anyway, thanks for burning the midnight oil. You guys keep everything running.
[12:35:30] <Bytram> DONE.
[12:35:32] <cmn32480|travelin> he had gone through the training before, me thinks
[12:35:39] * Bytram does not recall
[12:36:04] * Bytram goes to look at his settings
[12:36:11] <cmn32480|travelin> same time as me and CH
[12:36:35] * Bytram does NOT see the "Author in [dropdownlistbox]" setting enabled.
[12:36:39] <Bytram> at least on prod
[12:36:46] <cmn32480|travelin> he went through the training, and decided he better helped the site by submitting prolifically
[12:36:53] <cmn32480|travelin> check dev
[12:37:04] <cmn32480|travelin> shoudl have ed privs
[12:37:04] * Bytram checks dev
[12:37:22] <Bytram> I see he has 9 stories on dev
[12:37:46] <cmn32480|travelin> oh yes...
[12:37:46] <cmn32480|travelin> and I forgot
[12:37:47] <Bytram> I'm for it; I could turn it on, but I'd like to have the rest of the editor's buy-in before doing so.
[12:37:48] <cmn32480|travelin> bytram !!
[12:37:53] <Bytram> lol
[12:37:55] <Bytram> cmn32480|travelin: !!

[12:38:06] <Bytram> and, I needs to be in the shower and getting ready to head to work
[12:38:12] <cmn32480|travelin> but I'm just a low man on the totem pole.
[12:38:16] <Bytram> btw, did u get my txt last night?
[12:38:24] <cmn32480|travelin> this is a decision for mrc and zz_janrinok
[12:38:33] <Bytram> I had completely forgot there was live-streaming of the eclipse on the net.
[12:38:38] <cmn32480|travelin> yes.
[12:38:45] <cmn32480|travelin> it weas a great idea
[12:39:20] <Bytram> my connection is so slow, I'd never thing to use a stream, and I had clear skies so that put it even further out of my mind. I apologize for not thinking to mention it to you and others, earlier.
[12:39:52] <cmn32480|travelin> is ok
[12:40:23] <cmn32480|travelin> you shoudl have just gotten a return text
[12:40:57] <Bytram> I don't recall seeing one. :/
[12:41:05] <cmn32480|travelin> in the last 60 seconds
[12:41:11] <cmn32480|travelin> if I dind't screw up the number
[12:41:59] <Bytram> zz_janrinok: mrcoolbp: p666 has re-volunteered to do editing; i can enable if you are in agreement - please let me know.

[14:20:43] <janrinok> hi Cmn32480_phone !! This is janrinok bush telegraph here
[14:20:48] <Cmn32480_phone> Woo hoo! IRC from 38,000 feet
[14:21:07] <janrinok> I think that is a good idea? Unless you are the pilot...
[14:21:38] <Cmn32480_phone> I am high enough in the frequent flyer program that I get it for free
[14:22:11] <Cmn32480_phone> Check your email this morning?
[14:22:21] <janrinok> nope - hang on, will do it now
[14:23:51] <janrinok> I'm going to regret opening this picture, I can tell
[14:24:03] * Cmn32480_phone wonders what the lag to the server is
[14:24:19] <Cmn32480_phone> Nuh uh!
[14:24:22] <janrinok> looks like a nice brew :-)
[14:24:54] <Cmn32480_phone> Double fisting guineas and harp
[14:25:11] <janrinok> OK, nice pic too, I suppose
[14:25:11] <Cmn32480_phone> The harp was J's
[14:25:41] <Cmn32480_phone> It isn't like I had my kilt lifted for you to see my bum
[14:26:08] <janrinok> your bum was the least of my worries
[14:26:17] <Cmn32480_phone> Lol
[14:26:23] <janrinok> how were the family when last you saw them?
[14:26:34] <Cmn32480_phone> They are good
[14:26:47] <Cmn32480_phone> Put the kids to bed last night
[14:26:56] <janrinok> and how long is your trip expected to be?
[14:27:05] <Cmn32480_phone> Left at 0 dark thirty this morning
[14:27:14] <Cmn32480_phone> Home wednesday
[14:27:39] <Cmn32480_phone> How are you and S doing?
[14:27:42] <janrinok> I gather P666 is volunteering to join us in Team Ed again
[14:28:30] <Cmn32480_phone> Looks like it. Bytra. Says he has privs on dev bit nothing on prod
[14:29:32] <janrinok> I know that we trained him up, but for some reason he never transferred across.MrC
[14:30:08] <Cmn32480_phone> Hate to lose the prolific Subs in favor of
[14:30:21] <Cmn32480_phone> Him editing
[14:30:26] <janrinok> mrcoolbp: I seem to remember that we didn't quite reach the end of P666's training. Can I suggest a short refresher for him rather than just putting him on prod?
[14:31:19] <Cmn32480_phone> And from the comments it looks like he may want to edit in spurts
[14:31:25] <janrinok> Cmn32480_phone: I'll explain that last comment to mrc when you are in a position to use PMs. I suspect that it is not as easy with a hand-held device?
[14:31:59] <Cmn32480_phone> Unknown how easy or hard
[14:32:33] <Cmn32480_phone> Try sending me one
[14:32:39] <janrinok> k
[14:33:22] <Cmn32480_phone> Hmmmm
[14:33:31] <janrinok> lol
[14:34:00] <janrinok> if it is too difficult for a skirt wearing man, it will wait :)

[14:35:07] <janrinok> I know - my ancestry is Scottish, and I lived up there for a total of 7 years
[14:35:30] <janrinok> still have family there too
[14:35:35] <Cmn32480_phone> Interesting..... satellite link must have blinked
[14:35:47] <janrinok> have you found the PM?
[14:35:59] <Cmn32480_phone> Nope
[14:37:16] <Cmn32480_phone> I can join channels, but no mention of pms
[14:38:13] <Cmn32480_phone> I would have to pull my laptop
[14:38:25] <janrinok> don't bother - it is not important
[14:38:56] <Cmn32480_phone> K
[14:39:15] <Cmn32480_phone> But it is interesting doing this from 38000 ft
[14:39:32] <janrinok> how's the response times?
[14:40:06] <Cmn32480_phone> Reasonable
[14:40:16] <Cmn32480_phone> Better than I expected
[14:40:47] <janrinok> I just can't imagine being comfortable on one of those small pickey-poke keyboards. Ham-fisted such as I am
[14:40:52] <Cmn32480_phone> I do know streaming isn't allowed
[14:41:29] <Cmn32480_phone> I got used to it because I spend so much time on the road and having to answer email on the go
[14:42:18] <janrinok> ye, it seems ideal for people in your situation, and you can keep in touch with the family more easily too. Do you remember the days of long-distance calls from hotels?
[14:42:42] <janrinok> brb 1
[14:42:48] <Cmn32480_phone> Nope. Cell phones were common when I started traveling

[14:45:32] <cmn32480|travelin> hehe
[15:25:58] <mrcoolbp> janrinok: I would agree with that
