[03:29:28] <Bytram> oh, btw, who postred the last poll?
[03:29:40] <Bytram> I had kinda taken that on and then saw someone else posted one
[03:29:46] <Bytram> don'6t want to step on any shoes
[03:29:57] <cmn32480> i been watchign it
[03:30:10] <cmn32480> if you want the one that came in as a sub feel free to have at it
[03:30:40] * cmn32480 puts his shoes out with a bullseye on them to help Bytram aim
[03:31:10] <Bytram> you got your shoes at Target?
[03:31:23] <cmn32480> picked out by the Target dog
[03:31:39] <cmn32480> and now you are singing the jingle.
[03:31:50] * Bytram does not watch TV

[03:32:03] <cmn32480> dang it
[03:32:06] <cmn32480> I forgot

[03:39:09] <cmn32480> deathmonkey put in an interesting poll
[03:39:14] <cmn32480> but too many choices, I think
[03:39:53] <cmn32480> what are your thouhgts on the phosporesent pinwheels Bytram?
[03:41:19] <cmn32480> and is it wrongto put tow stories about autonomous cars back to back wiht the same dept jsut to see if poeple complain?
[03:43:44] <Bytram> hmm
[03:43:53] <Bytram> too late to merge them?
[03:43:58] <Bytram> or do the stories not really relate?
[03:44:07] <cmn32480> both on autonomous cars
[03:44:31] <cmn32480> one alreadin queue by p666 on the high stakes of making drivers go bye bye
[03:44:44] <cmn32480> other abotu ford opening testing in California
[03:45:07] <Bytram> /me refrshes queues
[03:45:18] * Bytram looks at ford story
[03:47:48] <Bytram> my connection dropped again
[03:47:52] <Bytram> and I just rebooted today.
[03:47:54] <Bytram> :/
[03:47:56] <cmn32480> still?
[03:47:59] <cmn32480> geesh
[03:48:00] <Bytram> yep
[03:48:07] <cmn32480> I had that all day at work
[03:48:12] <Bytram> ouch.
[03:48:12] <cmn32480> massive PITA
[03:48:20] <cmn32480> was mostly just IRC
[03:48:20] <Bytram> yep
[03:48:25] <Bytram> hmm
[03:50:07] <Bytram> I have an idea for a submission
[03:50:22] <Bytram> discovered there may be a classical music interest on the site
[03:50:38] <cmn32480> ok
[03:50:40] <Bytram> need to write it up and submit a story asking what people's favorites are
[03:50:49] <cmn32480> poll?
[03:50:52] <Bytram> and get some links to free copies, too!
[03:50:55] <Bytram> nope story
[03:51:02] <cmn32480> okie
[03:51:04] <cmn32480> Bach
[03:51:20] <cmn32480> and Mozart Piano Concertos
[03:51:34] <mrcoolbp> Fugue and Toccata in D Minor
[03:52:12] <Bytram> that's the idea
[03:52:23] <cmn32480> run it.
[03:52:32] <Bytram> I don't think there is an awareness among the community that there is a large shared interest in this area
[03:52:38] <cmn32480> I'll put it out (if it is well written) as an Ask Soylent
[03:52:42] <Bytram> give me, say, a half hour
[03:52:47] <cmn32480> np
[03:52:59] <cmn32480> and if I'm not still here, I'll run it in the morning
[03:53:25] <Bytram> k
[03:53:41] * Bytram is not ALL here, but that's why he fits in so well with this group!
[04:10:40] <Bytram> cmn32480: as for that ford story, there is a way to merge stories after the fact
[04:11:03] <mrcoolbp> I don't think so cept for doing so manually (so no)
[04:11:08] <cmn32480> really?
[04:11:13] <mrcoolbp> pretty sure
[04:11:13] <Bytram> yeah, it would be manual.
[04:11:19] <cmn32480> I thoguht it was copy text.
[04:11:20] <mrcoolbp> it's a function of the Submission Queue
[04:11:23] <cmn32480> accept story
[04:11:26] <cmn32480> hide in 19070
[04:11:30] <mrcoolbp> ?
[04:11:45] <mrcoolbp> hang on
[04:11:53] <Bytram> just paste the 2nd story into the first, and add another: <p class="byline">foo writes:</p>
[04:11:58] <Bytram> or
[04:12:02] <cmn32480> right
[04:12:07] <cmn32480> that is the only way
[04:12:10] <Bytram> just paste the 2nd story into the first, and add another: <p class="byline"><a href="blah">foo</a> writes:</p>
[04:12:17] <cmn32480> or we try to hold the se ond one for 12-14 hours then push it
[04:12:27] <takyon> check
[04:12:30] <Bytram> where you can get the 'blah' from the original submission
[04:13:13] <mrcoolbp> it's makes it kinda weird for someone trying to track down the "accept sub" from the userpage but otherwise pretty much the same as a real merge
[04:13:22] <takyon> merging my ford story eh?
[04:13:40] <Bytram> was just giving an option to cmn32480
[04:13:50] <takyon> yes there is no special merging function, just cut and paste AFAIK
[04:13:51] <Bytram> who had asked a qustion along those lines, earlier
[04:14:13] <Bytram> takyon: let me take this opportunity to thank you, personally, for your extremely well-written stories!
[04:14:25] <mrcoolbp> yeah that guy is rediculous
[04:14:37] <takyon> thanks
[04:14:38] * mrcoolbp reminds everyone that he trained takyon
[04:14:43] <Bytram> 'bout the only thing that I have to do is find a spot to put things into the extended copy area.
[04:14:44] <takyon> "trained"
[04:14:48] * mrcoolbp then admits he basically learned everything himself
[04:14:55] <mrcoolbp> = (
[04:15:02] <takyon> lel
[04:15:03] <cmn32480> mrcoolbo better be careful... gonna pull a muscle patting himself on the back that way
[04:15:07] <Bytram> as I try to keep the main page part to around 200 words
[04:15:11] <mrcoolbp> haha
[04:15:29] <mrcoolbp> no but seriously you guys kill it, <3 you guys
[04:15:37] <cmn32480> we do our best
[04:16:00] <cmn32480> can't wait for janrinok to come back
[04:16:17] <cmn32480> mostly 'cuz it means S is doing better
[04:16:54] <Bytram> I view the site more on my phone than on my desktop and the phone has a tiny display, 320x240 :(
[04:17:09] <mrcoolbp> sadface indeed
[04:17:43] <cmn32480> bytram has a phone from slightly after the discovery of America
[04:17:48] <Bytram> but, it's nice to keep tabs on our 'backlevel' support
[04:17:55] <Bytram> =)
[04:18:00] <cmn32480> sure
[04:18:05] <Bytram> nice thing about it is, No Ads!
[04:18:22] <cmn32480> we shoudl keep that back level support just to support you vintage tech
[04:18:29] <Bytram> unless it is self-hosted by the site, I just don't see 'em
[04:18:46] * Bytram just heard his stomach growl
[04:18:52] * Bytram getting food
[04:18:54] <Bytram> back in a bit
[04:19:07] <takyon> I kinda wish Firefox OS didn't die. I wanted to use a third world smartphone
[04:19:22] * Bytram so regrets throwing out his Commodore 64 and Atari 800
[04:20:02] <mrcoolbp> a tragedy in it's own right
[04:20:05] <mrcoolbp> takyon: agree

[13:06:29] * cmn32480 laughs
[13:07:33] * Bytram smakes cmn32480
[13:07:43] <Bytram> totally in jest, of course
[13:07:48] <cmn32480> what'd I do?
[13:07:48] <crutchy> at the same time?
[13:07:56] <Bytram> which reminds me, I need to ingest more coffee
[13:08:13] <Bytram> afk biab
[13:08:24] * Bytram needs to laundry, too. :/
[13:08:28] <cmn32480> i think there is a psace time continuum problem ther
[13:08:40] <cmn32480> do the laundry after mdnight
[13:10:02] <crutchy> if you work on the international date line it might be possible to be at work at 0600 on both friday and saturday at the same time
[13:10:25] <cmn32480> I thought that specifically went around all land masses...
[13:10:57] <crutchy> hmm. maybe hire a boat\
[13:11:13] <cmn32480> or get floaties
[13:34:15] <nick> g'day
[13:34:24] <cmn32480> ~gday nick!

[13:36:34] <nick> how goes?
[13:37:18] <cmn32480> not bad. the whole independantly wealthy thign hasn't happened yet, so I'm at work
[13:37:26] <cmn32480> how 'bout you?
[13:41:29] <nick> got somewhat of a day off today
[13:41:47] <nick> so have had a lazy morning, now making some lunch before getting some stuff done
[13:42:12] <cmn32480> nice!
[13:44:01] <cmn32480> gotta reboot. be right back
[13:49:29] <nick> chicken noodles
[14:02:15] <cmn32480> soup!
[14:02:25] <cmn32480> What do I win???
[14:04:23] <nick> the soup mysteriously disappeared between last night and this morning, so not that
[14:04:32] <cmn32480> BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

[14:19:21] <nick> also i'm pretty sure i bought some fancy dessert the other day, know i didn't eat it, can't find it
[14:19:39] <cmn32480> time for "the talk"
[14:19:45] <nick> lol
[14:20:06] <nick> is cool, everyone shares
[14:20:31] <cmn32480> but if you are always the one whose food is being eaten.....
[14:21:15] <nick> it's really not a big deal, if the dessert was something i wanted i wouldnt have forgot about it until today
[14:22:21] <nick> i don't lose out for sure
[14:22:35] <cmn32480> then it is OK I suppose
[14:23:36] <nick> it is cool, i go to different stores as i'm the only one who drives, but they often provide the basics and cook for me if i want it
[14:24:08] <cmn32480> that's cool
[14:24:16] <cmn32480> I never had that with my roommates
