[16:20:04] <cmn32480> Holy crap... a 3 story merge!
[16:21:17] <Bytram> yep; I was debating whether I wanted to dive into THAT one
[16:22:36] <cmn32480> I got it
[16:22:39] <cmn32480> they are all good too
[16:22:46] <cmn32480> well written summaries.
[16:24:20] <Bytram> Very nice!

[16:29:43] <Bytram> lemme know when you are ready for a 2nd
[16:29:45] <cmn32480> I beleive that last link is for mrcoolbp
[16:29:57] <cmn32480> I think it is good to go
[16:30:40] * Bytram goes to take a look
[16:31:09] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: = P
[16:32:28] <cmn32480> I imagine in that type of adult activity there would be a fairly significant place for that particular organ
[16:33:08] * Bytram once played a hammond organ; decided to keep his day job
[16:33:32] <mrcoolbp> Those things are sick
[16:33:43] <mrcoolbp> I want a hammond speaker cab for my guitar rig
[16:33:48] <mrcoolbp> (like Hendrix)
[16:35:05] <mrcoolbp> he actually used a Univibe (pedal that simulates that sound) AND a spinning cab, they "rotated" at different rates, which caused interference between the two "rotations" which built the majority of the sound for his National Anthem rendition (listen to how his guitar is like "breathing heavily" on a regular open note)
[16:38:41] <cmn32480> ~wethare
[16:38:53] <mrcoolbp> heh
[16:39:01] <cmn32480> sstupid fingers
[16:39:16] <cmn32480> i typed it right in #soylent though
[16:39:31] <mrcoolbp> just like code, I blame the operator = P
[16:39:39] <mrcoolbp> they just did what you told them
[16:40:03] <cmn32480> stupid brain... I'll poke him with a Q-Tip later
[16:40:55] <mrcoolbp> I don't think that's how it wor- eh, knock yourself out = )
[16:42:02] <Bytram> cmn32480: FYI: we've had a bit of 'noise' about the 'More after the break' text... I've lately been using: "<p>[Continues...]</p> " instead. thoughts?
[16:42:16] <cmn32480> go for it
[16:42:20] <Bytram> k
[16:50:27] <Bytram> cmn32480: looks good! made the change to 'Continues...' and added <em>...</em> around "The Register" and that was it! well done!
[16:50:53] <Bytram> btw, thisphrase gives me pause: "However, the browser will eventually insert advertisements of its own, but which Brendan Eich claims to be unintrusive, with no persistent user id or highly re-identifiable cookie. "
[16:51:09] <Bytram> no *persistant* user id (so there is a user id, right?)
[16:51:36] <Bytram> no *highly* re-identifiable cookie (so it *IS* re-identifiable, but not highly so)
[16:51:43] <Bytram> weaselwords--
[16:51:43] <Bender> karma - weaselwords: -1
[16:59:59] <cmn32480> I didn't do much on that big one bytram
[17:00:08] <cmn32480> the three subs were all VERY well writteb
[17:29:06] <nick> ahoy
[18:48:27] <Bytram> nick: heya!
[18:49:25] <nick> how are you, bytram?
[18:49:40] <Bytram> could use a 2nd on the hottest year on record story; starting tosee text soup.
[18:49:49] <Bytram> nick: good, thanks.
[18:50:06] <Bytram> caught up on some sleep last night, did two loads of laundry, and getting reeady to make lunch
[18:50:08] <Bytram> you?
[18:51:58] <nick> soup sounds good
[18:52:15] <nick> aside from that, i'm ok i think.
[18:53:43] <Bytram> that's better than "I'm terrible, and I'm sure!"
[18:53:47] <Bytram> =)
[18:55:11] <nick> so much work at the moment, no time for anything but planning for the next phase of work stuff everything just keeps building by the day it seems
[18:55:19] <nick> checking the story now
[18:57:44] <Bytram> feast or famine then. I try and convince myself that 'being busy beats being bored' although there are times when I've had my doubts!
[18:57:49] <Bytram> much obliged
[18:59:03] <nick> busy would be ok, it's the stress right now i'm not appreciating
[18:59:24] <Bytram> yep, that's no fun.
[18:59:58] <Bytram> best I ccan do in those situations is to explain to them that things are *really* busy at the moment and things make take a bit longer than normal; reset their expectations, yanno?
[19:01:04] <nick> yeah, i try to make that clear, but when people are paying for your time, sometimes they expect you to jump
[19:01:25] <nick> and other times 'things might take a bit longer' translates to 'you have 24hrs to get your shit together'
[19:01:54] <nick> i'm working with it, but it's for my own good i just keep on with this for now
[19:02:01] <nick> short term pain, long term gain
[19:02:21] <Bytram> agreed... don't know htat there is any better way to look at it.
[19:02:56] <Bytram> except, maybe, that if they're gonna be that 'touchy' up front, it may be best to NOT take them on as a client
[19:03:05] <Bytram> fewer problems down the road.
[19:03:15] <nick> don't always know that at the time
[19:03:36] <nick> i can walk from any contract i'm on, but burning bridges and all that jazz
[19:03:53] <Bytram> circles radiating from every peble in the pond
[19:04:11] <Bytram> s/peble/pebble/
[19:04:13] <exec> <Bytram> circles radiating from every pebble in the pond
[19:04:14] <nick> aye
[19:04:25] <Bytram> unless, of course, the pond is frozen! ;)
[19:05:00] <nick> there is a lot of pressure all around at the moment, my business partner is also under a lot of pressure from other clients
[19:05:11] <nick> and both had issues in getting money from clients recently
[19:05:50] <Bytram> thas not good
[19:06:10] <Bytram> starting to get really hungry; time to make some lunch.
[19:06:16] <Bytram> afk; brb
[19:06:23] <nick> enjoy

[19:53:55] <CoolHand> Bytram:
[19:54:21] <CoolHand> I was wondering if we should take this out of chinese air story: "<p>The air in Beijing is brown and smells like burnt soy sauce.</p><hr></p>"
[19:54:31] <Bytram> ??
[19:55:23] <Bytram> I was debating whether to keep it in or not, too. strike the text, but keep the <hr>
[19:55:34] <CoolHand> yeah, sorry, got in a hurry copy pasting
[19:55:57] <Bytram> np
[19:56:01] <Bytram> I appreciate the catch!
[19:56:01] <CoolHand> i know some people have gotten worked up over little comments like that
[20:00:53] <Bytram> yep, me too.
[20:01:50] <Bytram> that one seemed like poe's law in action to me. couldn't tell if it was serious or intended to be humerous. but, on retrospect, the humor was at the expense of a nationality and we aspire to better than that.
[20:01:59] <Bytram> again, I appreciate the catch! THANKS!
[20:02:55] <CoolHand> no prob.. glad I caught it
[20:03:09] <Bytram> teamwork++
