[13:18:06] <CoolHand> cmn32480:
[13:18:12] <cmn32480> yessir!
[13:18:17] <cmn32480> coolhand!
[13:18:18] <cmn32480> !
[13:18:20] <CoolHand> cmn32480: !!
[13:18:21] <CoolHand> :)
[13:18:34] <CoolHand> looking at that story you just posted.. the article doesn't seem to be there on 1st link..
[13:18:47] <CoolHand> The requested page "/sites/default/files/Antimicrobialsinagricultureandtheenvironment-Reducingunnecessaryuseandwaste.pdf" could not be found.
[13:19:03] <cmn32480> DOH!!!!
[13:19:06] <cmn32480> I missed the link
[13:19:09] <cmn32480> I'll fix
[13:21:15] <cmn32480> it is the %20's in the link
[13:21:24] <cmn32480> that is all the buzzard's fault
[13:21:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> ?
[13:22:15] <cmn32480> that %20 get pulled out of links
[13:22:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> make sure n bug me about that after i get done with caching and i'll fix it.
[13:22:37] <cmn32480> I shall bug daily, sir
[13:22:48] <cmn32480> providing you let me know when you are done w/ cahcing
[13:24:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod. you should hear about it. i'll be happy.
[13:24:49] <cmn32480> first tiem for everythgin I suppose
[13:25:22] <CoolHand> that'll be good for us.. I've run into that issue too..
[13:27:11] <cmn32480> coolhand - i've fixed it.
[13:27:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'm going to have to go through and whitelist the percent codes what're allowed i think, otherwise it allows folks to do things like stick disallowed unicode in a link.
[13:27:26] <cmn32480> with a note at the bottom explaining the use of the link shotner
[13:27:52] <cmn32480> let us know when you are done blowing up the cachign code and we will remind you Buzzard
[13:28:32] <CoolHand> cmn32480: -k, I'll 2nd..
[13:28:38] <cmn32480> thanks Coolhand
[13:28:49] <cmn32480> yer a gentleman and a scholar
[13:30:02] <CoolHand> I've been accused of that before..
[13:30:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, it'll be a few days. code's only half finished at best. just wanted to test where i was with it.
[13:31:27] <cmn32480> not worried TMB. we've been dealing this long, and only run into it when idiots put spaces in their links

[19:06:17] <nick> hi cmn32480
[19:12:34] <cmn32480> heay nick!!
[19:12:46] <nick> how goes?
[19:12:52] <cmn32480> same old same old
[19:12:59] <cmn32480> slowly workign through my backlog
[19:13:27] <cmn32480> how 'bout you? reasonable day?
[19:14:51] <takyon> check
[19:17:01] <nick> ahoy, takyon
[19:17:18] <cmn32480> and a new poll to boot!
[19:17:21] <nick> today was trying, this week is generally
[19:17:41] <cmn32480> trying to kill you?
[19:17:45] <cmn32480> trying to wear you out?
[19:17:50] <cmn32480> trying to pick your pocket?
[19:17:56] <nick> all 3?
[19:18:00] <cmn32480> certainly!
[19:18:09] <takyon> I want to buy one of those Pine computers I just submitted to soylent, but the base model doesn't come with a power supply (not a big deal) or wireless (somewhat bigger deal)
[19:18:29] <takyon> they need a $40 tier that gets you the Pine A64+ with wireless module
[19:18:31] <nick> yesterday tried to extend this contract on through all january, i was "lol, no"
[19:19:14] <cmn32480> not wirth the $$?
[19:19:37] <nick> the whole point of me doing this was because of flexibility, i wasn't supposed to be there all the time
[19:19:45] <nick> i have been for the last 2 weeks, and weekends
[19:20:06] <cmn32480> ICK!
[19:20:09] <cmn32480> f**k that!
[19:20:39] <nick> supposed to be 2-4hrs of my time a day, and then full days if absolutely necessary, and the client wanted me on it full time all january
[19:20:54] <cmn32480> for full time pay?
[19:20:57] <nick> ive already been letting other things slip in the last month or so
[19:21:12] <cmn32480> oh, at the expense of the rest of your clients.. that isn't good
[19:21:23] <nick> yeah, but it's still like less than 1/2 of what i can get elsewhere
[19:21:59] <cmn32480> ahhhh
[19:22:01] <cmn32480> run.
[19:22:04] <cmn32480> like the wind
[19:22:06] <nick> it works because other projects are not due for completion for some time
[19:22:19] <nick> and this i get paid every time i invoice
[19:22:26] <nick> which i'm doing weekly right now
[19:22:38] <nick> keeps the wheels turning, but keeps them turning for no reason if you can see what i mean
[19:24:16] <nick> i also need to get things together to see what next summer holds for the festivals, if i'm getting any work there
[19:25:11] <nick> although i kind of want to cut losses there anyway, as thats the least reliable work ive ever done in my life, as far as getting paid
[19:26:58] <nick> still manage to find it interesting and learn stuff through the switching of industries and positions/pay grades.
[19:29:16] <nick> spending a lot of time working in offices and such, installing security systems, i learned that it was not a place for me, a desk job
[19:29:33] <cmn32480> not reliable pay is bad
[19:29:49] <cmn32480> weekly invoice with near immediate payment is good, as long as the $$ is right
[19:31:09] <nick> it is working out overall, but i'm not used to being on other peoples schedules, which makes when things go a bit sideways, even more frustrating
[19:33:22] <nick> balance is difficult on this, everyone else on the project really needs it, and i'm trying to avoid being there, seems like i'm being an asshole sometimes because of the unique circumstances of my role
[19:35:41] <nick> i believe he thought he was doing me a favour by giving me a whole month full time, my reaction took him by surprise i think.
[19:37:21] <nick> had too much shit going on, not had time to properly launch the new services and products we're now offering
[19:37:25] <nick> is bad form.
[19:39:06] <cmn32480> nice
[19:39:21] <cmn32480> oooo Comacast jsut showed up to fix the internet connection.
[19:39:23] <cmn32480> back later.
[19:40:57] * nick tip of an imaginary hat
[19:56:16] <takyon> Comcast came to disconnect your Comcast service
[19:56:21] <takyon> thereby fixing it
[20:15:26] <cmn32480> "How many devices do you have behind this 50Mb connection?"
[20:15:35] <cmn32480> 30 or 40, plus servers
[20:15:45] <cmn32480> this connection is really only rated for 5 devices....
[20:15:55] <nick> heh
[20:15:56] <cmn32480> <giggle>
[20:16:05] <cmn32480> it has been fine for 4 years...
[20:16:47] <takyon> that stuff is practically CYA
[20:16:59] <cmn32480> uh huh
[20:17:02] <takyon> although I'm sure someone has been banned from their ISP for running servers
[20:17:02] <nick> i was literally just looking that they're claiming 200Mb around here now with the FTTC stepping up a gear in residential markets
[20:17:30] <cmn32480> I'm on a business connection
[20:17:38] <cmn32480> completely legal and above board
[20:17:38] <nick> i'm sure the router they supplied you with once upon a time, would be happier with only 5 devices
[20:17:46] <cmn32480> prolly
[20:17:55] <cmn32480> as far as the router knows, there is only one device connected
[20:17:59] <cmn32480> my firewall
[20:18:06] <nick> but thats why isp routers should be burned
[20:18:29] <cmn32480> it was hilarious
[20:18:53] <nick> that's what i'd go with anyway, there's one device connected.
[20:18:57] <cmn32480> i then pulled up the traffic graphs for the bandwidth usage... and that talk stopped
[20:19:30] <takyon> that all sounds superfluous for fixing the connection
[20:19:34] <nick> outside network troubles, i dont give them any opening for trying to shift the blame internally
[20:19:45] <cmn32480> nope
[20:19:45] <takyon> cmn's network interrogation
[20:19:51] <nick> mhm
[20:20:02] <cmn32480> he pulled up the trouble ticket system and saw a big red middle finger over my area
[20:20:39] <cmn32480> then it was "OH! Ther is already a ticket open for the main node that you are attached to. That woudl explain the problems you are having..."
[20:20:59] <nick> it's a shame a slow clap doesn't work over the phone
[20:21:24] <takyon> big red middle finger?
[20:21:41] <cmn32480> this was the guy on site
[20:21:47] <cmn32480> yeah
[20:21:59] <cmn32480> as in "f**k you! see the big ass problem?"
[21:35:47] <takyon> cmn32480 this bitcoin story is infinitely more important
[21:37:22] <cmn32480> than what?
[21:37:47] <takyon> that other bitcoin story
[21:40:04] <takyon> cmn32480 7m / Overstock to Issue Shares on the Bitcoin Blockchain
[21:40:16] <takyon> you can't hide from me cmn32480
[21:40:37] <cmn32480> I was looking at the link and deciding if I was gonna do anyhtign with it
[21:40:46] <cmn32480> then was interrupted by a VP looking for somethign
