[02:42:02] <exec> sed enabled for 10#editorial
[02:42:03] <chromas> :D
[02:42:20] <cmn32480> hehehehehe
[02:42:20] <Bytram> what did that do?
[02:42:33] <chromas> exec can do sedbotting
[02:42:38] <cmn32480> I'm gonna guess exec has that function
[02:42:45] <cmn32480> ninjad
[02:43:12] * chromas notes that most of the bots are converging in functionality
[02:43:16] * Bytram wonders which bot wins?
[02:43:21] <Bytram> tooth and nail
[02:43:25] <Bytram> s/o/e/g
[02:43:26] <exec> <Bytram> teeth and nail

[02:44:04] <Bytram> ~fight sedctl exec
[02:44:25] <Bytram> looks like it is a tie!
[02:45:30] <cmn32480> it'll be interesting... eventually the bots will have to be hosted by SN at the end of the war
[02:47:42] <Bytram> cmn32480: would you please do me the honors of 2nding my 975th story?

[02:58:09] <cmn32480> they shoudl do SOMETHIGN

[02:58:41] <cmn32480> well yes... they do that well
[02:59:03] <Bytram> I kinda noticed. :P
[02:59:11] <cmn32480> :p
[02:59:23] <Bytram> goose and the gander, eh?
[02:59:28] <cmn32480> yes
[02:59:33] <Bytram> =)
[03:00:29] <cmn32480> damnit
[03:00:31] <cmn32480> did it again
[03:00:40] <cmn32480> posted the same story twice
[03:00:43] <Bytram> whacha dew?
[03:00:47] <Bytram> urk.
[03:01:13] <Bytram> hmmm, is it "The Washington Post" or "the Washington Post"?
[03:01:24] <cmn32480> The
[03:01:39] <Bytram> merci
[03:01:51] <cmn32480> The name of the paper is "Teh Washington Post
[03:01:53] <cmn32480> :
[03:01:55] <cmn32480> "
[03:01:59] <cmn32480> stupid fingers
[03:02:43] <Bytram> fyi: fixed in "Why Silicon Valley Cares So Much About Who Will Lead the Library of Congress"
[03:02:52] <cmn32480> thx
[03:03:04] <Bytram> as it is a publication, I actually changed it to: <em>The Washington Post</em>
[03:03:13] <cmn32480> yes
[03:03:15] <cmn32480> yes
[03:03:52] * Bytram channels "When Harry Met Sally"
[03:04:04] <Bytram> Waiter? I'll have what he's having.
[03:04:11] <cmn32480> lol
[03:06:15] <Bytram> Hugh Pickens is fond of using "the NYT" when, properly it should be either "TNYT" or "<em>The New York Times</em>"
[03:06:27] <cmn32480> yes
[03:09:09] <Bytram> FT in Hugh's story... I'm gonna assume that is The Financial Times?
[03:09:41] <Bytram> close. "Financial Times" without the "The"
[03:09:50] <cmn32480> I believe that is correct
[03:11:27] <Bytram> http://www.ft.com
[03:11:28] <Schwifty> ^ 03World business, finance, and political news from the Financial Times - FT.com ( http://www.ft.com )
[03:11:33] <Bytram> =)
[03:16:01] <Bytram> heads up: P666 tends to leave out links from the original source.
[03:16:08] <cmn32480> did I miss one?
[03:16:23] <Bytram> the driverless lorry story
[03:16:42] <cmn32480> ???
[03:16:52] <Bytram> Earlier in the year, <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-33675934">Daimler had expressed its desire to carry out such a test</a> by the end of 2015.
[03:16:53] <cmn32480> first line of the blockquote
[03:16:54] <Schwifty> ^ 03Autonomous trucks: Daimler seeks licence for road tests - BBC News
[03:17:34] <cmn32480> http://www.bbc.com
[03:17:36] <Schwifty> ^ 03Daimler driverless lorry tested in motorway traffic - BBC News
[03:17:37] <Bytram> I just hit save, there should now be TWO links in the blockquote
[03:18:25] <cmn32480> ok
[03:18:59] <Bytram> no biggee, I've just grown accustomed to certain author's "foibles"
[03:19:16] <cmn32480> agreed
[03:19:24] <Bytram> P666 leaves out link (sometimes entirely)
[03:19:41] <cmn32480> occassionally
[03:20:11] <Bytram> Hugh tends to use any name OTHER THAN "The New York Times"... and he could usually stand having a <p> or three added.
[03:20:46] <Bytram> P666, to his credit, seems genuinely interested in improving his submissions.
[03:20:51] <Bytram> I don't think that Hugh notices.
[03:20:58] <cmn32480> no
[03:21:01] <cmn32480> i odn't think he does
[03:22:54] <Bytram> What's in Android 6 (Marshmallow)? 12 pages of changes ...
[03:23:02] <Bytram> S'mores of the same?
[03:23:06] <cmn32480> a mention of a few changes.
[03:23:12] <cmn32480> <groan>
[03:23:15] <Bytram> LOL!
[03:23:24] <Bytram> I offer it as a dept entry.
[03:24:04] <cmn32480> AGREED
[03:24:21] <cmn32480> that's funny in a "make me grown" kind of way
[03:24:54] <cmn32480> interesting... HP doens't comment
[03:25:03] <cmn32480> he last commented in May
[03:25:21] <Bytram> "make me grown" ?? I *love* it!
[03:25:34] <cmn32480> and his history is only about a dozen comments
[03:25:51] <Bytram> hmmm, in the Android 6 story, do you know what 'GCM' is?
[03:26:19] <chromas> Google Cloud Messaging
[03:26:28] <chromas> (probably)
[03:26:30] <cmn32480> it is
[03:26:36] <Bytram> looks like it. thanks!
[03:29:03] <Bytram> 12 pages of changes... I wonder if those are 4 KB pages? <grin>
[03:30:14] <Bytram> GCM: "Hey! You! Get off of my Cloud!" -- The Rolling Stones
[03:31:22] <cmn32480> <groan>

[03:32:37] <Bytram> typos--
[03:32:37] <Bender> karma - typos: -1
[03:32:48] <cmn32480> nah we got a lot more than -1 typos
[03:33:36] <cmn32480> cripe I've probably got more than thta in oen sentence
[03:33:52] * Bytram is aiming to reach the level of *imaginary* typos
[03:34:51] * Bytram shudders to think there was a time he could do triple integrals on the complex number plane without breaking [much of] a sweat.
[03:35:03] * cmn32480 is aiming to reach the level of *fewer than a 2nd grader learning to type" typos
[03:35:20] * cmn32480 failed calculus twice.
[03:35:45] <Bytram> from the really-REALLY-strange-looking-transformations dept.
[03:36:36] <Bytram> I wish we had something like mathlab back when I was taking that course. It would have been a blast to run each of the parameters through a sequence of values and watch how the plos would be transformed.

[13:25:18] <janrinok> lol
[13:25:41] <janrinok> still, it was good to sit in the peace and quiet of the outdoors?
[13:26:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> well outdoors anyway. plenty of other guys out there yesterday not catching fish right along with me.
[13:26:44] <janrinok> you move back home at the weekend?

[14:19:44] <janrinok> hi nick
[14:19:50] <nick> hey janrinok
[14:19:59] <nick> how goes?
[14:20:03] <janrinok> how's things with you - obviously still busy
[14:20:15] <janrinok> things here are OK, but we are a bit thin on the ground
[14:20:55] <janrinok> however, the queues are up to date for another 24hrs or so
[14:21:00] <nick> trying to get my act together for editing, so many moving parts at the moment it's proving a bit of a challenge
[14:21:22] <janrinok> np - hope it is all going well for you
[14:21:31] <nick> i'm currently without a desk, my main PC is a a pile on the floor, but i do have a laptop so
[14:21:37] <janrinok> lol
[14:21:59] <janrinok> and I have this image of you in your 'Alan Sugar'-style boardroom
[14:22:07] <nick> lol
[14:22:27] <nick> the board room at best is the kitchen table
[14:22:54] <janrinok> all my visual images lie shattered at my feet ...
[14:25:34] <nick> well, i can borrow a conference room to keep up appearances
[14:25:42] <janrinok> :)
[14:25:55] <nick> probably have to put a button-up shirt on then too though
[14:25:56] <nick> so fuck that
[14:26:33] <nick> morrisons beef brisket burgers in the oven :D
[14:26:37] <janrinok> nah, you sit there with your Bermuda shorts and Hawaiian Shirt on
[14:26:49] <janrinok> food - sounds good
[14:28:05] <nick> im going to do my 'ask soylent' on VPS providers today, whats the preferred term for a member of the soylent community?
[14:28:38] <janrinok> I use Soylentil for one
[14:29:15] <janrinok> if you want the story to go out today, just put it where you want and move the current story into tomorrow
[14:29:53] <nick> yeah, that would be handy if cheating a little lol
[14:30:23] <janrinok> np, we are working quite a bit ahead at the moment so it seems a reasonable thing to do
[14:31:46] <nick> i did check last night and the queue was good, intended to top it up before i went to bed, but i keep falling asleep in the evenings (or 2am) on the sofa
[14:33:44] <janrinok> understandable. cmn is working away from home but manages to post each evening.
[14:34:25] <janrinok> CH is very busy, as is MrCBP, takyon posts the occasional story
[14:40:09] <nick> nod
[14:41:13] <nick> im going to keep an eye on it, should be up for editing this evening to save you or cmn some hassle tomorrow
[14:44:00] <janrinok> would be appreciated but don't sweat it if you have too much on
[14:44:26] <janrinok> I don't suppose MrCBP will dock too much from your editor's pay
[14:46:12] <nick> lol
[15:27:53] <nick> still here janrinok?
[15:43:46] <janrinok> yep
[15:43:55] <janrinok> nick:
[15:44:26] <nick> just about to put my ask soylent into the queue, if you could give it a decent look over it would be really appreciated
[15:44:37] <nick> make sure it makes sense and isn't just a ramble.
[15:44:38] <janrinok> will do
[15:46:47] <janrinok> can't see it yet
[15:47:44] <nick> adding links quickly and paragraphs
[15:47:53] <janrinok> lol
[15:47:54] <nick> wrote it in libreoffice first
[15:51:38] <janrinok> no pressure, but I've got to go in less than 10 minutes - I'm cooking
[15:53:26] <nick> is in the queue now
[15:53:31] <nick> 18:30
[15:58:08] <janrinok> done - a couple of minor typos, but other than that it was clear and understandable.
[15:58:38] <nick> great, thanks :D

[17:32:17] <janrinok> anyone got any idea what happened ^^ - I wasn't even sat at the computer.
[17:33:20] <nick> ?
[17:37:40] <janrinok> I got a disconnected for invalid arguments +Z i
[17:38:01] <janrinok> +i and +x, but I wasn't even at the computer
[17:44:01] <nick> only saw your name change here
[17:47:08] <janrinok> ah, ok, it must have been a gremlin
[17:48:27] <janrinok> I have to be up very early tomorrow, S goes into hospital for the morning for some minor treatment. I have to be up about 90 minutes before she leaves the house
[17:51:13] <nick> hope that all goes well, give my regards to S
[17:51:37] <janrinok> thx, will do. I'll have to be gone from here in about an hour though
[17:52:02] <nick> i dont think im going anywhere this evening, i'll be loitering and will top up the queue before bed
[17:52:40] <janrinok> I think that the queue is quite healthy, but a few more on the end won't go amiss.
