[03:10:54] <exec_> └─ 13Hawaiian high court blocks construction of giant telescope | Science/AAAS | News
[03:11:26] * Bytram is saddened at the loss of a science opportunity, but apprecaites the sensitive subject and area.
[03:11:39] <Bytram> caryon: how was your day?
[03:11:44] <Bytram> ugh.
[03:11:49] <Bytram> cmn32480: how was your day.
[03:11:55] <cmn32480> reasonable
[03:12:06] <cmn32480> worked all day between taking kids places
[03:12:09] <cmn32480> how about you?
[03:12:24] <Bytram> meant to ask you, how did you finally straighted out that WSUS update thingy problem?
[03:12:41] <cmn32480> it is hlaf assed working
[03:12:53] <cmn32480> but not really well
[03:13:02] * Bytram guesses that is better than full-assed working.
[03:13:08] <Bytram> ;)
[03:13:24] <Bytram> bummer; hope yoiu can get it straightened out, soon.
[03:13:53] <cmn32480> likely the sorting out will be replacing the software with a real patch management system
[03:14:04] <Bytram> I just finished a six-day-in-a-row stretch that started with an 18-hour day on black friday that started at 11PM turkey day night.
[03:14:12] <Bytram> so, I'm just a wee little bit tired.
[03:14:26] <cmn32480> that sucks
[03:14:29] <Bytram> I have thursday off, and then another 6-day stretch.
[03:14:41] <Bytram> it's the one time when they are pretty free with overtime.
[03:14:46] <Bytram> I'll bank it while I can.
[03:15:51] <cmn32480> I would
[03:16:03] <Bytram> we had a really big sale start today, and I had over $12k drop in from 'pre sales' (we put the items aside and put cc info in our system; transaction goeslive on the first day of the sale.)
[03:16:24] <Bytram> customer can pick up that day, or withoin a couple weeks after
[03:16:34] <cmn32480> nice
[03:16:49] <cmn32480> I hope youa r gettign credit for that and it goes on your commission
[03:17:07] <Bytram> prolly 1/2 to 2/3 of that is commisionable, and even then, it's a low rate, but every bit helps.
[03:17:16] <Bytram> oh, I most certainly am.
[03:17:39] <Bytram> if all goes well, one of my coworkers who has been on leave for a month should be back.
[03:17:47] <cmn32480> nice
[03:17:51] <Bytram> really could have used her around, today.
[03:18:03] <cmn32480> that'll help, but dilute the pool of hours you have access to
[03:18:37] <Bytram> not so much, her hours are already being taken by someone else who is [trying to] fill in for her.
[03:18:54] <Bytram> does not know the merchandise at all, nor the procedures.
[03:19:25] <Bytram> by the time she is a net productively useful, she'll be gone.
[03:19:35] <Bytram> still, better to have her than nothing.
[03:20:01] <Bytram> when there are too many customers at one time, she can at least run interference and jkeep some distracted until we can catch up with things.
[03:20:21] <cmn32480> somethign is better than nothing, but not much
[03:20:37] <cmn32480> like having an intern who knows Macs on a Windows sysadmin job
[03:20:55] <Bytram> that's overstating things, but I don't see her being much a go-getter... is easily overwhelemd and walks around like a deer-in-the-headlights a lot.
[03:21:00] <Bytram> ding
[03:21:15] <cmn32480> woof
[03:21:20] <cmn32480> seen that before
[03:21:51] <Bytram> anyway, I noticed the queue was r5unning dry, so I popped in to push out a few stories. thanks for the 2nds!
[03:23:12] <cmn32480> no porblem.
[03:23:26] <cmn32480> I was heading that direction when you were on story 2 of 5, so I held back
[03:23:42] <cmn32480> now tha you are done, I'll push out a bunch
[03:24:12] <Bytram> I'm just pushingout another now, and then will call it a night.
[03:24:33] <cmn32480> excellent!
[03:24:39] <cmn32480> thanks for the help

[03:24:49] <chromas> Bender: grab Bytram
[03:24:49] <Bender> Added quote 27
[03:24:51] <Bytram> ok, it's in the queue.
[03:25:29] <cmn32480> push the flusher to get it out of the queue
[03:25:30] <Bytram> that's not fair, I'm asleep at the keyboard and it's a miracle I'm even somewhat intelligible
[03:25:39] <cmn32480> but funny
[03:26:10] * Bytram may need to create a macro to follow ever new-line with another line that contains 'nograb'
[03:26:13] <Bytram> =)
[03:26:20] <Bytram> s/ever/every/
[03:26:26] <cmn32480> good idea
[03:26:42] * Bytram notices his typing is starting to approach the caliber set by cmn32480
[03:26:48] * chromas may need to make a nograb subversion grab macro
[03:27:03] <Bytram> I'm sure if I practise hard eye wood bee able to castup!
[03:27:19] <cmn32480> if you are gonna grab everythgin, you might as well jsut read the logs
