[12:58:08] <CoolHand> cmn32480|away: u around this morning?
[12:59:25] <CoolHand> well, if you come on and see this in the next couple hours, in the "German Man" story, your dept name has "hiis-brain" instead of "his-brain" I haven't changed it yet b/c I'm not sure if you're making some joke I'm not getting..
[12:59:37] <CoolHand> If I don't hear from you b4 it runs I might change it though..

[16:40:50] <Bytram> tmrw, 0615 to 1515
[16:40:54] <Bytram> snzzzzzzzt
[16:40:58] <cmn32480> woof
[16:41:06] <cmn32480> coffee++
[16:41:06] <Bender> karma - coffee: 39
[16:41:18] <Bytram> meow?
[16:41:21] <Bytram> coffee++
[16:41:21] <Bender> karma - coffee: 40
[16:41:31] <Bytram> got a question for ya
[16:41:35] <Bytram> looking at: https://soylentnews.org
[16:41:53] <Bytram> p666 closes with the question: "Does this mean databases of people are fair game, too?"
[16:41:59] <Bytram> which, I believe in the US, at least
[16:42:15] <Bytram> is a settled matter wrt, e.g., phone number directory
[16:42:34] <Bytram> suggstions for a replacement? or just leave it in for the community to 'play' with?
[16:42:46] <cmn32480> let the community argue it out
[16:43:03] <Bytram> leav it be, ok.
[16:43:07] <Bytram> *leave
[16:43:21] <cmn32480> yeah
[16:43:28] <Bytram> 2nding, completed on that story.
[16:43:31] <cmn32480> I'd say roll the dice and let it ride
[16:43:38] <Bytram> nod nod
[16:43:54] <Bytram> things ever get resolved with comcast?
[16:43:59] <cmn32480> yeah
[16:44:03] <cmn32480> Monday morning
[16:44:11] <cmn32480> tech showed up at 8:15
[16:44:15] <cmn32480> new router
[16:44:18] <cmn32480> problem solved
[16:44:24] <Bytram> nice
[16:44:26] <cmn32480> like I told them 3 weeks ago
[16:44:46] <Bytram> new router... residential grade? commercial? what kind of a box are we talking about?
[16:45:35] <cmn32480> commercial internet gateway
[16:45:45] <Bytram> ahhh, a big boy toy!
[16:45:57] <cmn32480> supports the static IP's, and the 100mbps connection that I currently have
[16:46:05] <Bytram> ncie
[16:46:08] <Bytram> nice
[16:46:23] <cmn32480> will support up to 1gbps over coax if/when Comcrap rolls that out
[16:46:37] * Bytram can spell but his fingers have a mind of their own, it seems.
[16:46:48] <Bytram> speed++
[16:46:48] <Bender> karma - speed: 1
[16:46:51] <Bytram> speed++
[16:46:51] <Bender> karma - speed: 2
[16:46:52] <Bytram> speed++
[16:46:52] <Bender> karma - speed: 3
[16:47:03] <cmn32480> speed is only good if you need it
[16:47:12] <cmn32480> I was fine on the 50/10 line we had
[16:47:31] <Bytram> how is the latency? that can actually make as much, if not more, of a difference
[16:47:43] <cmn32480> but the only way to guarantee a new router was to get the speed increased
[16:47:55] <cmn32480> roughly the same
[16:48:31] * Bytram has to deal with terminals that insist on waiting at least a couple seconds between each input and the response, sometimes 10-15 seconds
[16:48:37] <Bytram> nodnod
[16:49:04] * Bytram is trying to think of something to de-meh the Electic BMW story
[16:49:57] <cmn32480> I don't think you CAN de-meh a BMW
[16:50:01] <Bytram> As more and more automakers, and others, get into the electric vehicle space, what do you foresee as how thing will play out in the next 5-10 years?
[16:51:02] <Bytram> s/how things will play out/how things will develop/
[16:51:44] * Bytram is definitely under-caffeinated atm
[16:51:47] <cmn32480> fossil fuels are going the way of the dodo in the next 25 years, at least as far as the automotive market is concerned
[16:52:53] <Bytram> what about apartments? Think of high rise housing developments... trying to plug in your car. In the winter. When there's 3 feet of snow on the ground.
[16:53:23] <Bytram> or is that just a matter of public transportation has that covered?
[16:53:27] <Bytram> I dunno
[16:53:59] <Bytram> I'm gonna leave it as is. feel free to 'enhance' as you see fit. https://soylentnews.org
[16:55:10] <Bytram> heh: Most of Musicaian Pete Seeger's FBI File Released
[16:55:24] <Bytram> what is a "Musicaian" ;)
[17:00:28] <cmn32480> it si kinda like a typoist
[17:00:35] <Bytram> ROFL!!!!!
[17:00:46] <Bytram> Oui, Senor!
[17:03:38] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org
[17:03:52] <Bytram> nvm
[17:05:27] <Bytram> Hmmm, If someone were to wear a garment which used this infrared-colored dye, what would a bystander see?
[17:06:00] <Bytram> Emperor's New Clothes?
[17:06:37] <cmn32480> I believe that the article says the dye is invisible
[17:06:47] <cmn32480> so if applied to white, fabric si still whit
[17:06:49] <cmn32480> e
[17:07:03] <Bytram> so, you'd just see the natural color of the fibers that make up the garment.
[17:07:10] <Bytram> kthnx
[17:07:35] * Bytram dashes thought of a new line of women's clothing.
[17:08:22] <cmn32480> what you wear is up to you
[17:08:49] * Bytram was thinking of a line of clothes that, say, Vicoria's Secret could bring to market
[17:09:09] <Bytram> just add an IR lamp to the boudoir and...
[17:10:14] <cmn32480> they dissappear?
[17:10:17] <cmn32480> WOO HOO!
[17:11:00] <Bytram> or... they gain additional 'features' ??
[17:11:09] <cmn32480> woo hoo!
[17:11:13] <cmn32480> !woop
[17:11:13] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[17:11:27] <Bytram> nice to see you smile, my friend!
[17:13:40] <cmn32480> I'm sitting at my rental property wwhile the HVAC system is getting replaced.
[17:14:09] <cmn32480> my wallet hurts
[17:14:10] <Bytram> that's property that you rent out?
[17:14:25] <cmn32480> yes, I own it, and rent it out
[17:14:31] <cmn32480> great tenants currently
[17:14:46] <Bytram> good for you! let your capital work FOR you.
[17:14:51] <cmn32480> yeah
[17:15:02] <cmn32480> but the $8k to replace the HVAC is a lot to swallow
[17:15:18] <Bytram> so glad to hear you have good tennants -- those can be rare
[17:15:23] <cmn32480> yeah
[17:15:53] <Bytram> all it takes one of the "other" kind and it could cost you a whole lot more than a new HVAC system.
[17:16:00] <cmn32480> uh huh
[17:16:05] <Bytram> and you'd have nothing to show for it.
[17:16:07] <cmn32480> the HVAC was original from 1991
[17:16:16] <Bytram> ouch.
[17:16:17] <cmn32480> I really can't complain
[17:16:24] <Bytram> hope this one has better efficiency!
[17:16:27] <cmn32480> much
[17:16:39] <cmn32480> but since I don't pay the electric... it isn't eally an issue
[17:17:18] <Bytram> ahhh
[17:17:33] <Bytram> well, I'm sure your tennants will appreciate the savings.
[17:17:37] <cmn32480> yeah
[17:17:39] <Bytram> nice to be good to them, too.
[17:17:49] <cmn32480> and I will appreciate it when we finally sell the join
[17:17:50] <cmn32480> t
[17:18:04] <cmn32480> this palce has been a real loser for me this year
[17:18:06] <cmn32480> new dryer
[17:18:09] <cmn32480> new microwave
[17:18:11] * Bytram just checked in at the EFF panopticon test site
[17:18:12] <cmn32480> new HVAC
[17:18:26] <Bytram> ugh. double ugh.
[17:18:30] <cmn32480> but I get a tax deduction
[17:18:40] <Bytram> taxdeductions++
[17:18:40] <Bender> karma - taxdeductions: 1
[17:18:51] <cmn32480> yeah... but I'd rather have the $$
[17:19:07] * Bytram notes his user-agent is rather identifying
[17:19:20] <Bytram> understood
[17:19:48] <cmn32480> I think I am gonna run home for lunch.
[17:20:22] <Bytram> any suggestions on a Firefox (actually, Pale Moon) addon that would change my referer string to something innocuous?
[17:20:37] <Bytram> might be faster to drive?
[17:20:40] <cmn32480> there are a bunch of user agent switchers out there
[17:20:42] <Bytram> ;)
[17:20:53] <Bytram> have you used any of them?
[17:21:03] * Bytram would rather not waste time sperimenting
[17:21:06] <cmn32480> not in recent memory
[17:21:09] <Bytram> k
[17:21:25] <cmn32480> there are a ton of them.
[17:21:49] <Bytram> that's what I mean.,.. there's so many, and I bet most of 'em are me-too-versions.
[17:22:05] * Bytram should prolly rewad commentw on the story we posted.
[17:22:10] <Bytram> ok, need to take a break; biab
[17:22:13] <Bytram> afk

[18:55:22] <cmn32480> I got the reference :-)
[18:56:05] <CoolHand> yep
[19:01:46] <cmn32480> granted... it is December and 60 degrees
[19:01:53] <cmn32480> so a bikini isn't out of the question
[19:02:00] <cmn32480> but I don't think you wanna see mwe in one
[19:21:49] <CoolHand> definitely NOT!
[19:22:14] <CoolHand> and the people I'd want to see in one, I'd just as soon see in even less.. :)
[19:22:31] <cmn32480> and I'm not one of them????
[19:22:35] <cmn32480> I feel so unloved
[19:22:53] * cmn32480 goes to cry in a corner
[19:24:10] <CoolHand> well we love cmn32480 for reasons other than natural beauty
[19:24:36] * cmn32480 knows there isn't much natural beauty here.
