[02:01:32] <Bytram> what was that?
[02:02:53] <cmn32480> dunno... I don't really pay attention to him
[02:03:05] <Bytram> so, umm, what did you fix?
[02:03:11] <cmn32480> i think it was the raspberry pi being faster, not overclocked
[02:03:23] <cmn32480> azreal fixed it
[02:03:29] <Bytram> oh, you mean fixed something in a story
[02:03:33] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:04:03] <Bytram> queue is running a bit dry.
[02:04:09] <Bytram> think I'm gonna spaces stories out a bit.
[02:04:18] * cmn32480 watches the tumbleweeds roll past
[02:04:18] <Bytram> going fgor about 2hrs instead of 90 min
[02:04:28] <cmn32480> ok
[02:04:32] <cmn32480> you are editing?
[02:04:44] <cmn32480> I shall stand by so we don't step on each other
[02:05:02] <Bytram> I'm playing witht he Content Deliv Network story
[02:05:30] <cmn32480> ok
[02:05:42] <cmn32480> I'm calling Amazon customer service back. they pooched my return
[02:06:03] <Bytram> bad amazon!
[02:06:13] <Bytram> what did they do? (or not do, as the case may be.)
[02:06:14] <cmn32480> meh shit happens
[02:06:28] <Bytram> that's good, constipation is no fun.
[02:06:30] <cmn32480> I had bought an XBox360 some time back for my kids for Christmas
[02:06:46] <cmn32480> decided to get the XBoxOne on Black Friday
[02:07:03] <cmn32480> but the order was over 30 days old.
[02:07:13] <cmn32480> none of the accessories are forward compatible
[02:07:20] <cmn32480> extra controllers, etc.
[02:07:40] <cmn32480> so I called, and they approved the return of the XBox, but not the accessories.
[02:07:43] <Bytram> iow, the XBone is not backward compat to Xbox360 components?
[02:07:50] <cmn32480> correct
[02:07:54] <Bytram> nod ndo
[02:08:13] <cmn32480> so I gotta call back Customer service to return the rest of the stuff.
[02:08:39] <Bytram> if they did not approve return of accessories before, what is different, now?
[02:08:56] <cmn32480> they were supposed ot approve the accessories too
[02:09:02] <cmn32480> all on one order.
[02:09:11] <cmn32480> and she told me on the phone that it shoudl all go in one box
[02:11:01] <Bytram> so, did you send the accessories along with the XBox360?
[02:11:09] <cmn32480> not yet.
[02:11:15] <cmn32480> got the RMA about 45 minutes ago
[02:11:22] <Bytram> aha.
[02:11:31] <cmn32480> sorry.. shoudl ahve mentioned that
[02:12:03] <Bytram> so, you have already sent the XB360, as you got auth to do that.
[02:12:13] <Bytram> now, you finally got auth to send the accessories, too?
[02:12:32] * Bytram is working on the hadfield & munroe story
[02:12:33] <cmn32480> I was just pulling it all out when I saw that was the only thign on the RMA.
[02:12:47] <cmn32480> need the RMA for the accessories
[02:13:25] <Bytram> oh, so you got the RMA, thought it was for everything, found out it wasn't, contacted them, and just 45 min ago, got auth for accessories, too?
[02:14:04] <cmn32480> somethign like that
[02:14:44] <Bytram> close enough, I guess. so now I take it, you are gather the accessories together for sending back, too?
[02:15:10] <cmn32480> correct
[02:15:25] <Bytram> got iy!
[02:15:30] <Bytram> got it!
[02:15:44] * Bytram is just a wee bit tired and his typoing shows it.
[02:16:51] <Bytram> btw, how did the shopping go? Did you find what you were looking for?
[02:19:55] <cmn32480> not bad
[02:21:38] <Bytram> that sounds, non-comittal
[02:21:39] <cmn32480> got most of what i wanted, but Target's online inventory was garbage. and the check from the other store that said they had 3 of somethign was incorrect.
[02:21:55] <Bytram> counting is hard.
[02:22:00] <cmn32480> they had a whole zero in stock,
[02:22:44] <Bytram> An item could be availalble, or on hold for another customer, or set aside as damaged (but not yet shipped out), or...
[02:22:51] <cmn32480> unless the teenagers that work there were the ones who had them squirreled away in the back
[02:23:22] <Bytram> that would never happen.
[02:23:26] <Bytram> :P
[02:24:02] <cmn32480> i know
[02:24:11] <cmn32480> especially on Black Friday!
[02:24:59] <Bytram> It is *not* black... just a very VERY dark gray! ;)
[02:25:17] <cmn32480> somethign like that
[02:26:08] <cmn32480> I have, as they say, seen that movie before
[02:26:22] <Bytram> umm, which movie?
[02:27:03] <Bytram> be sure to read the story in the Guardian linked to in the Hadfield and Monroe story -- quie well done!
[02:27:27] <cmn32480> the "what an awesome deal, I'm gonna hide one in the back and say nobody can find it" movie
[02:27:33] <Bytram> I'm alomst done with editing the story.

[02:32:00] <cmn32480> when I quickly saw that Hadfield and munroe story... I read Hatfield and McCoy and thought, well... that'll be a bloodbath
