[03:08:54] <Bytram> what with 'The Intercept_' ?? fixed in two places.
[03:21:12] <takyon> we call it "The Intercept"
[03:21:19] <takyon> forget whatevr stylistic thing is in the logo
[03:22:26] <Bytram> didn't know there was any stylistic stuff in there... anyway it is now referred to as "<em>The Intercept</em>"
[03:29:53] * Bytram just pushedout a couple stories.
[03:32:06] <Bytram> just a heads up to all the editors: I'm going to be much less active on the site and in here. Am working extra hours and days from now until into the New Year.
[03:33:11] <Bytram> Also, J replied to an e-mail I sent him. S is on the mend. Is taking longer than anticipated, but all so far is in the positive direction.
[03:33:35] <Bytram> he sends his regards and hopes to be 'back in the saddle' before too much longer.
[03:33:51] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away

[15:55:09] <janrinok_afk> cmn32480, I'm just looking at the story on the front page regarding the Moon Landing Tapes - you did notice it was dated 2009 didn't you?
[15:55:25] <cmn32480> um...

[15:58:26] <cmn32480> the second one I meant
[15:58:58] <cmn32480> and nobody in the comments noticed. or RTFA obviously
[16:05:07] <cmn32480> Editors - I have moved all of Phoenix666's subs to the hold queue.
[16:05:38] <cmn32480> janrinok_afk, Bytram|away CoolHand nick ^^^^
[16:07:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> do we not like him anymore?
[16:07:35] <CoolHand> is that just to pick some others for awhile?
[16:07:56] <cmn32480> there were 40 subs in the queue... 27 were his.
[16:08:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> this is a good thing, yes?
[16:08:33] <cmn32480> we still love him very much as he keeps us all working, but there are a lot of others who are subbing after the latest meta article, and I think it good form to give them all their due
[16:09:06] <CoolHand> you're just mad he submitted a 2009 story you didnt' catch..
[16:09:08] <CoolHand> :P
[16:09:12] <cmn32480> mostly a note that there are a shitton of subs in the hold queue that we can pull from
[16:09:25] * cmn32480 blushes
[16:09:31] <cmn32480> um,mm.;.. no
[16:09:47] <cmn32480> adn nobody in the commetns noticed it either
[16:09:52] <cmn32480> janrinok was the only one
[16:09:58] <CoolHand> luckily I didn't 2nd that one.. so I have no guilt.. :) woot!
[16:10:05] <cmn32480> lol
[16:10:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> just a personal opinion here but if ya got one from him and one from someone else, merge them bastiches so both get credit. don't wanna honk off our biggest contributor.
[16:10:32] <cmn32480> absolutely
[16:10:34] <CoolHand> true dat!
[16:10:47] <cmn32480> the list of 40 is a lot to sift.
[16:13:10] <cmn32480> I am gonna send p666 an email to let him know what I did. so he doens't freak

[16:15:16] <cmn32480> I was jsut sending you an email
[16:15:28] <cmn32480> phoenix666 ^^
[16:15:44] <Phoenix666> yeah?
[16:15:48] <cmn32480> don't fret. I moved all your stuff out of the main queue into the hold queue
[16:15:53] <Phoenix666> OK
[16:16:09] <cmn32480> you have been wonderfully prolific the last few days :-()
[16:16:14] <Phoenix666> I wanted to help you guys bank stories against the weekend
[16:16:31] <Phoenix666> Thanksgiving, and all that
[16:16:44] * cmn32480 forgot about next week... oh shit
[16:17:05] <cmn32480> one day at a time is about all I can handl;e at this point
[16:17:07] <Phoenix666> No, the queue looks good and diverse, as it should be
[16:17:31] <cmn32480> since the last meta article went out the other day we have been seeing a lot of new and infrwequent submitters tossing stuff in.
[16:17:43] <Phoenix666> That's really good.
[16:17:52] <cmn32480> having the nagger at the top kinda reinforces it
[16:18:25] <Phoenix666> I get tired of seeing my own UID showing up in the queue
[16:18:41] <cmn32480> we don't
[16:18:51] <cmn32480> your stuff generally takes very little work to get published
[16:18:54] <CoolHand> Phoenix666: thanks for all you do for us... :)
[16:19:08] <Phoenix666> I really hope that if we give the community necessary shortcuts, they'll feel more empowered to do so
[16:19:11] <Phoenix666> of course
[16:19:13] <cmn32480> though I got caught up this morning by janrinok who noted that the NASA destroying the moon landing tapes was from 2009
[16:19:33] <Phoenix666> i am a slave to the RSS feed lately :-)
[16:19:39] <CoolHand> ..and I accused him of moving your stuff to hold b/c of it... :)
[16:19:42] <cmn32480> I giggled, read the comments, and nobody has noticed!
[16:19:53] <Phoenix666> not even wonkey_monkey?
[16:20:00] <cmn32480> nobody!
[16:20:06] <Phoenix666> damn
[16:20:08] <cmn32480> or if they did, it wasn't noted in the comments
[16:20:21] <cmn32480> we;ve been giggleing about it for the last 20 minutes or so
[16:20:40] <Phoenix666> You know, I had to laugh when the hyper ancient story on the history of the 'more' command got as much chatter as it did
[16:20:57] <cmn32480> we never claimed to be timely...
[16:21:01] -!- nick has quit [Ping timeout: 272 seconds]
[16:21:01] <CoolHand> um... I haven't done any 'giggling'... speak for yourself.. may have had a laugh over it, but no 'giggling'..
[16:21:09] <Phoenix666> methinks our greybeard population is non-trivial
[16:21:20] <cmn32480> not my fault you aren't man enough to giggle
[16:21:40] <cmn32480> me thinks you are correct Phoenix666
[16:21:52] <cmn32480> LOGICALLY THAT HOLDS
[16:21:58] <cmn32480> stupid caps lock
[16:22:13] <Phoenix666> i propose an annual SN beard competition
[16:22:14] <cmn32480> we have a lot of folks who lurked on /. or had really low UID's there
[16:22:20] <cmn32480> don't do it
[16:22:24] <cmn32480> Coolhand will win
[16:22:34] <Phoenix666> really?
[16:22:38] <cmn32480> think ZZTop
[16:22:42] <CoolHand> cmn32480: I don't think so... u haven't seen me lately..
[16:22:50] <cmn32480> she made you shave?
[16:22:57] <Phoenix666> I expect a handlebar mustache at the top. obligatory
[16:22:58] <CoolHand> didn't make me...
[16:23:13] <cmn32480> you shaved it off volutarily
[16:23:21] <cmn32480> I'm sorry... we can't be friends anymore
[16:23:29] <Phoenix666> LOL
[16:23:56] <CoolHand> haha
[16:24:07] <CoolHand> I still have it, it's just short and trimmed now
[16:24:31] <Phoenix666> It's OK as long as you're also wearing ironic hats and/or eyewear
[16:24:40] <CoolHand> hehe
[16:25:26] <CoolHand> well, I gotta head out guys.. been fun... ttyl

[16:28:02] <chromas> Did you at least store your beard in a box somewhere?
[16:28:15] <Phoenix666> i have photographic evidence

[18:46:20] <cmn32480> people call in.. I tell them they are wrong
[18:46:24] <cmn32480> and fix their shit
[18:47:24] <nick> i did my good deed for the day and replied to an inquiry my company got earlier this week, gave some general consumer advice
[18:47:56] <cmn32480> I did my good deed by not thropweing a vendor out the windows and telling them where they coudl stick it
[18:48:16] <cmn32480> I think I jhsut figured out you are a better person than me
[18:48:19] <nick> throwing the vendor out of the window could have been a good deed
[18:49:29] <nick> i just dont like seeing people get ripped off, we cant do what the customer required because of industry regulation
[18:49:52] <nick> so i wanted to give them an idea of what they'd be looking at costing, from a company that could meet the requirements
[18:50:34] <cmn32480> you are a good man Charlie Brown.
[18:52:06] <nick> also tasty, according to this puppy that wants to eat me
[19:06:49] <cmn32480> yum... but hey.. whastever your fetishes are, I won't judge
[19:08:27] <nick> not my fetish, i didnt choose for the dog to try and eat me
[19:08:32] <nick> anyway, i am actually going out for dinner
