[03:19:55] <HL3-Confirmed> ^ 03The 62 richest people have as much wealth as half the world - Jan. 17, 2016
[03:20:13] <cmn32480> you were probably 63rd
[03:21:01] <Bytram> sure, problem is, that was using a radix of 100,000,000 ;)
[03:22:40] <Bytram> was just popping in for a few minutes to catch up on things and see how everyone was doing.
[03:23:14] <cmn32480> gotta push whatever is left in the quue out tonight and hope we get shit by morning

[03:24:39] <cmn32480> thanks
[03:25:03] <cmn32480> am trying to load cyanogenmod on J's old Nook color. Not having much luck
[03:25:33] <Bytram> have heard of it but never tried loading it myself.
[03:26:01] <Bytram> was actaully thinking of trying it at one point until I heard that Microsfot joined up.
[03:26:07] <cmn32480> yeah
[03:26:18] <cmn32480> but for hardware this old it is really the only game in town
[03:26:25] <Bytram> it was only recently I discovered there is 'cyanogen' AND the is 'cyanogenmod'
[03:26:47] <cmn32480> <blink> <blink>
[03:26:48] <Bytram> the 'mod' version is apparently MS free
[03:26:57] <cmn32480> ahhhhhh
[03:27:00] <Bytram> I don't know for sure, but that's my take on things atm
[03:27:00] <cmn32480> got it
[03:27:03] <Bytram> =)

[17:54:50] <nick> hi cmn32480
[17:55:05] <cmn32480> heya nick
[17:55:11] <cmn32480> jsu8t an FYI - I am heading to the airport in about 2 hours, back online late tonight, then offilne until likely Wednesday due to shitty schedules with meetings and flights.
[17:55:47] <nick> no worries, i'll top up the queue this evening
[17:56:46] <nick> i've got a full schedule for the next couple of days myself but will endeavour to drop in when i can after work
[17:59:36] <cmn32480> I shoudl eb able to hit it tongiht when I get to the hotel... but tomorrow is gonna be a freaking mess
[18:01:22] <nick> can only do what you can
[18:03:53] <cmn32480> that's right
[18:04:05] <cmn32480> but it's days like this where we start missing having JR around
[18:04:15] <cmn32480> and LAmX
[18:07:16] <nick> have you heard from JR at all recently?
[18:07:24] <cmn32480> yeah
[18:07:30] <cmn32480> things seem to be progressing.
[18:07:41] <cmn32480> slowly, but S is apparently doing better every day
[18:07:53] <cmn32480> he dropped a comment or two on the site over the weekend about something
[18:07:55] <nick> very happy to hear that, both of them have been in my thoughts.
[18:07:57] <cmn32480> but I forget what
[18:08:04] <cmn32480> mine too
[18:08:31] <cmn32480> in all honesty, I miss him. not just from the editorial perspective, but as a friend
[18:12:11] <nick> same, i've really enjoyed my conversations with him. hope i still find the time to make a trip out to his corner of the world.
[18:12:26] <cmn32480> he ain't that far from you
[18:12:40] <cmn32480> in relative distance
[18:14:39] <nick> for sure, the logistics are pretty simple. finding the time is not so much, especially now i'm not considering moving to continental europe anymore.
[19:27:46] <CoolHand> cmn32480:
[19:27:58] <cmn32480> coolhand !!
[19:28:22] <cmn32480> what'd I screw up now?
[19:28:55] <CoolHand> haha
[19:29:04] <CoolHand> well, not reall you..
[19:29:07] <cmn32480> well inevitably there is sometrhign
[19:29:20] <cmn32480> nobody has walked in my door without somethign I pooched today
[19:29:49] <CoolHand> that At&T article - not sure the article author was spot on about them choosing linux over MS... I'm trying to nail that down, but it seems like they chose something for cloud stuff, and not desktop applications, but not 100%
[19:30:19] <cmn32480> I thoguht that was clear from the line about networks servers and "enterprise appli ations
[19:31:20] <CoolHand> ah, the author first talks about desktop share.. seems to imply it.. green site ran this yesterday and first coment is :"It's for hosting services, not for client use. In the cloud, the competition is pretty even between everything that isn't based on Mac OS. Why does this decision surprise anyone?
[19:31:25] <CoolHand> "
[19:31:43] <cmn32480> interesting
[19:31:49] <cmn32480> if we need to pull it, go for it
[19:32:17] * nick looks
[19:32:43] * cmn32480 looks back
[19:32:47] <CoolHand> I think just a different headline.. Canonical lands big contract with At&t or something
[19:33:11] <cmn32480> Canonical lands AT&T Cloud Contract?
[19:33:42] <nick> changing the headline doesn't take away from the MS focus in the summary
[19:34:16] <nick> it's quite good how you can write an article about two companies working together, focusing the entire conversation on a third unrelated company
[19:34:22] <cmn32480> MS Loses AT&T Cloud Contract to Canonical?
[19:34:31] <CoolHand> http://www.theinquirer.net
[19:34:33] <HL3-Confirmed> ^ 03Ubuntu Linux beats IBM and Microsoft Azure to lucrative ATT contract- The Inquirer
[19:34:43] <CoolHand> it looks like they actually did beat MS out - and IBM
[19:34:59] <nick> that is a better article
[19:35:02] <nick> from a quick skim
[19:35:13] <CoolHand> just not on desktop
[19:35:56] <nick> i would say switch out the submission article for that one you found
[19:36:09] <cmn32480> good plan
[19:36:13] <CoolHand> alrighty
[19:36:13] <cmn32480> it is a better article
[19:36:23] <cmn32480> I'm packing to leave for the airport
[19:36:30] <cmn32480> you gonna hand;e Coolhand?
[19:37:52] <CoolHand> yeah
[19:38:04] <cmn32480> bless you my son
[19:38:08] <CoolHand> maybe nick can check me afterwards (re-second)
[19:38:17] <nick> aye
[19:38:18] <CoolHand> your welcome father
[19:38:36] <nick> take care, cmn32480
[19:38:41] * cmn32480 slices off Cool's hand with a lightsaber
[19:38:47] <cmn32480> thanks nick
[19:39:04] <cmn32480> I'll be online for another 20 min or so, but will be getting all my shit together
[19:40:12] <CoolHand> how's it look nick ?
[19:40:20] <CoolHand> have a good trip cmn32480
[19:40:41] <cmn32480> thanks Coolhand
[19:40:43] <cmn32480> I will try
[19:40:51] <cmn32480> I hate these 24hr in and out jobs
[19:40:54] <cmn32480> massive pita
[19:43:10] <nick> taking out the first line, but otherwise it's so much better
[19:43:42] <nick> updated
[19:45:15] <nick> it's still a crap story in my opinion, but a far more informative and less patronising summary
[19:55:23] <CoolHand> cool, thanks nick
