[03:23:00] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[08:50:17] systemd is now known as BotRoss
[12:07:10] zz_janrinok is now known as janrinok
[15:52:53] <cmn32480> FYI - I changed the headline on p666's story about Google Docs taking a dive from "Titsup" to "Down" despite El Reg using the first option
[16:20:56] <cmn32480> janrinok !!
[17:23:34] <janrinok> cmn32480: !!
[17:23:43] <janrinok> only an hour late in answering!
[17:32:25] <cmn32480> is ok
[17:32:34] <janrinok> how's things ?
[17:32:36] <cmn32480> I was doing other thigns
[17:32:40] <cmn32480> good
[17:32:46] <cmn32480> J is sending me out grocery shopping
[17:32:51] <cmn32480> milk
[17:32:53] <janrinok> on a Sunday?
[17:32:58] <cmn32480> oh yes
[17:33:06] <cmn32480> certain thigns need getting
[17:33:21] <cmn32480> milk and a few other necessities
[17:33:24] <cmn32480> nothign major
[17:33:48] <janrinok> for most shops here it is not allowed to open on a Sunday. Smaller shops can, but rarely do.
[17:34:04] <cmn32480> this is American
[17:34:08] <cmn32480> *America
[17:34:12] <cmn32480> land of the dollar
[17:34:17] <janrinok> it is not a religious thing - it is about giving workers time off
[17:34:18] <cmn32480> the almighty dollar
[17:34:29] <cmn32480> nobody cares about the worker
[17:34:39] <cmn32480> in this country anyway
[17:35:13] <janrinok> sounds like the family are well then, if you can be sent shopping :)
[17:35:28] <cmn32480> the boys are out with my MIL at the Renaissance Festival
[17:35:36] <cmn32480> the daughter is here causing her usuall trouble
[17:35:50] <janrinok> blow on her tummy, or tickle here
[17:35:53] <janrinok> her*
[17:35:59] <cmn32480> that was earlier
[17:36:03] <cmn32480> and it worked
[17:36:10] <cmn32480> she stopped causing trouble for about 3 minutes
[17:36:15] <cmn32480> :-)
[17:36:23] <janrinok> a whole 3 minutes!
[17:36:31] <cmn32480> it was like a breath of fresh aitr
[17:36:33] <cmn32480> *air
[17:37:27] <cmn32480> I dropped a bunch of stuff in the queue (we got about 12 hours 'till it runs out)
[17:38:00] <cmn32480> I'll hit it again after I get back from the store
[17:38:12] <janrinok> yeah, I've just finished 2nd'ing it
[17:38:19] <cmn32480> so you haqqve!
[17:38:23] <cmn32480> *have
[17:38:27] <janrinok> :)
[17:38:31] <cmn32480> jeepers, I can't tpye today
[17:38:36] <cmn32480> *type
[17:38:52] <cmn32480> worse than usual
[17:38:58] <janrinok> what's with the 'today' crap?
[17:39:04] <cmn32480> touche
[17:39:46] <cmn32480> I subbed a story about the additional automakers with emissions problems, might be a merge with the P666 story on VW
[17:39:54] <cmn32480> but I can't do it, as it is my sub
[17:40:42] <janrinok> k - I'll probably do some stories in a bit
[17:40:47] <cmn32480> up to you
[17:40:57] <cmn32480> if not, I'll deal on it later
[17:42:12] <janrinok> well, you'll be busy buying the milk
[17:42:22] <cmn32480> :-p
[17:42:34] <cmn32480> and maybe taking a nap
[17:42:51] <cmn32480> or watchign TV...
[17:42:55] <cmn32480> or readinga book
[17:43:09] <cmn32480> or playing with the kid that si still here
[17:43:15] <janrinok> they have beds and tv in the store?
[17:43:29] <janrinok> I should go buy some milk so that I can have a lie down
[17:43:41] <cmn32480> you are almost at bed time
[17:43:53] <janrinok> true - I'd better get my coat then ...
[17:44:16] <cmn32480> 2 more hours (give or take) and you will be zz_janrinok
[17:44:22] <janrinok> yep
[17:44:56] <cmn32480> two more hours and I will be cmn32480|buyin_milk
[17:45:07] <cmn32480> i can probably stall that long
[17:45:20] <janrinok> lol
[17:45:29] <cmn32480> golly that cabbage soup was good last night, but the aftereffects are killing me
[17:45:33] <janrinok> don't fall asleep - you will be in trouble
[17:45:41] <cmn32480> and everyone within a city block
[17:45:42] <janrinok> and don't light a match
[17:46:34] <cmn32480> deal
[17:47:21] <cmn32480> it is giving me a nice case of what a friend's kid calls "bubble guts"
[17:48:02] <janrinok> lol - I get that from time-to-time. I like my veggies
[17:48:57] <cmn32480> me too... but it has been years since I had cabbage... now I remember why
[17:49:33] <janrinok> not a thing to forget in a hurry
[17:49:51] <cmn32480> obviously my memory is failing as I get older
[17:50:14] <janrinok> ah, something I can relate to - if only I could remember what you said
[17:50:34] <cmn32480> who are you again?
[17:50:48] <janrinok> shit, my screen is talking to me
[17:52:44] <cmn32480> scary
[17:52:53] <cmn32480> mine is doing the same thing... must be a virus
[17:53:06] <janrinok> have you had/are you having a good weekend after your week away?
[17:54:15] <cmn32480> yeah it has been pretty nice
[17:54:24] <cmn32480> got the grass cut yesterday
[17:54:42] <cmn32480> so the yard doesn't look like a forest in the making anymore
[17:54:49] <janrinok> I'll do mine tomorrow - but it has gone quite cool here over the last few days
[17:55:48] <cmn32480> here too
[17:57:11] <cmn32480> winter is coming
[17:57:17] <cmn32480> and probably sooner than we think
[17:57:22] <janrinok> just a heads up - S goes into hospital for 2 weeks in November. I'm not sure if that will give me more free time or less yet.
[17:57:30] <cmn32480> understood
[17:58:02] <cmn32480> let me before it happens and I will make sure that I have enough time to keep things running so that you can be with her
[17:58:04] <janrinok> it will be a couple of hours round trip each day for visiting, not including the visit itself
[17:58:22] <cmn32480> obviously she is to be the priority
[17:58:39] <cmn32480> we will keep the lights on for SN, don't worry
[17:59:04] <janrinok> thx - I'll let you know a bit closer to the time
[17:59:19] <cmn32480> oh.. and as a side note, I'm leaving Wednesday night for a long weekend with J and the oldest boy.
[17:59:28] <cmn32480> we leave Wednesday night adn return Monday afternoon
[18:00:05] <janrinok> yes, you mentioned it - I hope some of the others can put a bit in for both of our absences
[18:00:19] <cmn32480> if I am taking my laptop remains to be seen, and I will almost certainly not be editing, but I will let you know.
[18:00:33] <cmn32480> or at least, you will see stuff pop up in the queue
[18:00:50] <cmn32480> IRC will be a no-no, I'm sure
[18:01:03] <janrinok> don't you go spoiling a good weekend away just to post on here!
[18:01:18] <cmn32480> if I do anything it'll be late night
[18:01:26] <cmn32480> long after you've gone to be
[18:01:48] <cmn32480> *bed
[18:01:51] <janrinok> that still doesn't make it a good idea
[18:01:55] <cmn32480> I know
[18:04:06] <cmn32480> I'll be careful
[18:04:37] <janrinok> you could be in so much trouble ...
[18:04:49] <cmn32480> that, sir, is how I live my life
[18:04:58] <janrinok> an man living on the edge
[18:07:09] <cmn32480> the edge of insanity
[18:07:21] <janrinok> you've already fallen over that edge
[18:07:28] <cmn32480> I know
[18:07:41] <cmn32480> I just dropped a note in the other channel for all the eds tellnig them I won't be around
[18:07:51] <janrinok> ah k
[18:10:47] * nick notes
[18:10:57] * cmn32480 hat tip
[18:11:01] * nick hat tip
[18:11:03] <janrinok> hi nick
[18:11:13] <nick> hey janrinok :)
[18:11:21] <cmn32480> afternoon/evening nick
[18:11:35] <janrinok> having a good w/e nick?
[18:11:43] <nick> only just sat down, catching up on above conversation
[18:12:00] <cmn32480> mostly nothing important
[18:12:02] <nick> it's been interesting
[18:12:06] <janrinok> I thought that you were taking it easy?
[18:12:15] <nick> heh
[18:13:15] <nick> not so much, not working maybe gave me time to think and i was up all last night working on stuff and today has been busy generally
[18:14:16] <janrinok> you've got to save some time just for you, you know?
[18:15:48] <nick> i agree, but it's not easy at certain times
[18:16:20] <janrinok> yeah, I know
[18:16:49] <nick> most people feel that im sure
[18:16:59] <cmn32480> make sure you stop and take a deep breath every now and again nick
[18:17:53] <janrinok> and here ends the advice from the 3 busiest people on here!
[18:18:03] <cmn32480> pretty much
[18:18:13] <nick> im glad you are going to be taking some time on the long weekend, cmn32480
[18:18:16] <cmn32480> though CH has been up to his eyes the last couple months
[18:18:28] <cmn32480> me too!
[18:18:28] <janrinok> not true, Bytram|away and CH are also busy, as is MRrC
[18:18:51] <janrinok> in fact, I guess we are all pretty busy
[18:18:58] <cmn32480> everybody has RL to deal with.
[18:19:22] <cmn32480> we all do what we can. and all contributions are appreciated.
[18:19:31] <cmn32480> however large or small.
[18:20:40] <janrinok> I've got a small contribution - or at least I think that's what she said
[18:24:20] * cmn32480 respectfully declines to comment
[18:24:38] <janrinok> after 4 minutes of laughing at me behind my back
[18:24:55] <cmn32480> I woudln't do that
[18:25:03] <cmn32480> I'd laugh at you right to your face
[18:25:28] <janrinok> I thought that was what you were going to say ...
[19:17:08] <janrinok> I'm not sure what P666 has been drinking, but I've just had to delete several of his posts. Missing links, incorrect links, bad formatting. Not his usual quality at all.
[19:17:41] <cmn32480> done the same. had to find several links for stuff that was missing
[19:18:39] <janrinok> I'm not sure if he is using software to find stories, but some of the problems I saw today suggest that he might be. I have stories like that too - but I just bin the ones that don't format properly
[19:19:39] <cmn32480> i believe you are likely right
[19:19:58] <cmn32480> I have a recollection of you and he talking about how you wee implementing Arthur and the submission API
[19:20:05] <janrinok> let me know if you understand that Untamed OpenBSD story - it's too late for me to wade through it
[19:20:17] <cmn32480> nope
[19:20:22] <cmn32480> I looked at it and passed ti over
[19:20:39] <janrinok> I certainly gave him a steer that way
[19:22:07] <janrinok> time for me to go look after S and then get myself off to bed
[19:22:17] <cmn32480> okie
[19:22:29] <cmn32480> you get some rest.
[19:22:31] <janrinok> see you tomorrow - my best to J
[19:22:36] <cmn32480> I'll pole at the queue again later
[19:22:46] <cmn32480> sweet dreams my friend
[19:23:07] <janrinok> It's good for quite a while now, and I hope that we might get a few more decent posts in the next 12 hours or so
[19:23:22] -!- audioguy [audioguy!~audioguy@Soylent/Staff/Developer/audioguy] has joined #editorial
[19:23:26] <cmn32480> I'll see if I can drain the sub queue before bed
[19:23:39] <janrinok> there is a lot of dross in there
[19:23:45] <cmn32480> dross?
[19:24:16] <janrinok> it is the waste product when processing iron - tends to get used colloquially for things having no use
[19:24:18] -!- audioguy [audioguy!~audioguy@Soylent/Staff/Developer/audioguy] has parted #editorial
[19:24:32] <cmn32480> ahhh... slag
[19:24:44] <janrinok> no, slag is similar but different
[19:25:04] <cmn32480> ok
[19:25:08] <cmn32480> I shall look it up
[19:25:32] <cmn32480> have a good night
[19:25:38] <cmn32480> give my best to S
[19:25:46] <janrinok> I think that slag is waste metal that hasn't smelted properly and is therefore of poor quality, whereas dross is not metal but simply waste
[19:26:05] <cmn32480> slag is generally the impurities that get tossed out
[19:26:34] <cmn32480> the sttel mill near here has a mountaing that they ahve been building since 1898 when the plant went online
[19:26:52] <cmn32480> well... they WERE building it. the plant went under a few years back
[19:26:53] <janrinok> It's too late to debate it now :) I'm off! see you tomorrow
[19:26:58] <cmn32480> NIght!
[19:27:10] <janrinok> same here - historical rather than current practice
[19:27:33] <cmn32480> shoo! off to bed with you!
[19:28:06] janrinok is now known as zz_janrinok
[22:34:41] <Phoenix666> Hi Guys, just catching up to the stream. Sorry about the mangled submissions. I don't know which ones you were talking about specifically, but I was trying to use Vimperator's editing this week to take advantage of vim's features, but sounds like it didn't come through. Odd, though, because I had hit preview before each post
[22:35:17] <Phoenix666> Anyway I wasn't trying to run up the score, but to bank a healthy pipeline to get us through the 3-day weekend here in the US.
[23:29:41] <cmn32480> Phoenix666 - no worries. We are pretty well through the weekend. and there are still 7 or 8 in the queue for tomorrow
[23:30:07] <cmn32480> it was mostly surprising more than anything.
[23:42:06] <Phoenix666> I haven't had a window to work on my submission bot, but that's where I'd like to get eventually. Upstream you guys said you found 500 articles. Where from?
[23:42:37] <cmn32480> the RSS feed
[23:42:54] <cmn32480> http://logs.sylnt.us
[23:42:55] <BotRoss> ^ 03#rss-bot | Logs
[23:45:30] <Phoenix666> That's a good, fat pipe. Is the issue sorting through it?
[23:47:37] <Phoenix666> I'll see if I can chunk some more in later tonight
[23:48:03] <cmn32480> arthur handles the sorting ok.
[23:48:13] <cmn32480> but janrinok has put in a load of work to get him where he is
[23:50:42] <Phoenix666> It's excellent work. Definitely will help keep the pipeline full
[23:52:51] <Phoenix666> dinner bell's ringing, check you later!
[23:54:18] <cmn32480> see-ya Phoenix666
