[02:15:18] <cmn32480> congrats on your whole day of Bytram
[02:15:23] <Bytram|away> prolly won't be as bad as the effects from hurricane sandy, but I'd not thought of this until I saw this story in #rss-bot
[02:15:30] <Bytram|away> cmn32480: mare see!
[02:15:32] <cmn32480> and thanks... 'cuz I ain't had time to do shit
[02:15:37] <Bytram|away> hth
[02:15:52] <Bytram|away> nice to be able to give folks a day off once in a while
[02:15:55] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[02:16:00] <Bytram> ahhh, that feels better
[02:16:03] <Bytram> ;)
[02:17:58] <cmn32480> psht
[02:19:06] * Bytram wonders if he dares ask what that stands for?
[02:20:22] <cmn32480> is that dissmissive noise people make
[02:50:56] <crutchy> like pfft
[02:53:19] <Bytram> ahh, for a moment there, I thought it was a 'shorthand' like: brb, afk, biab, etc.
[03:06:35] <Bytram> cmn32480: just took a look at the national weather map... hope you aren't getting hit too hard! http://images.intellicast.com
[03:07:04] <cmn32480> we have about 2 inches on the ground atm
[03:07:12] <cmn32480> nothign of any real substance
[03:07:19] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:07:25] <cmn32480> certainly ont worth all the excitement
[03:07:30] <Bytram> found a map with a bit better locality and resolution: http://images.intellicast.com
[03:08:41] <Bytram> is not over yet, tho
[03:08:50] <cmn32480> i know
[03:08:57] <cmn32480> according to most we are in the 18-24 range
[03:10:03] <Bytram> that is a 'good-sized' storm in my area, but you're prolly not used to anything of that size in your area
[03:10:15] <Bytram> afk brb
[03:10:15] <cmn32480> nah
[03:10:22] <cmn32480> we get one every 5-10 years
[03:10:40] <cmn32480> but it usually is like 3 or 4 storms back to back that dump it over a week
[03:10:46] <cmn32480> instead of in 48 hourse
[03:11:42] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:12:04] <Bytram> we'll generalluy get an 18-24 storm at least once each winter
[03:12:18] <Bytram> tho, last winter, we had a single 30" storm... THAT got our attention!
[03:13:03] <cmn32480> hehe
[03:13:04] <cmn32480> I bet
[03:13:16] <cmn32480> we are still in leaf blower territory, not snow blower territory
[03:14:27] <Bytram> at 30 inches, many a snow blower was cutting a path under the surface -- tunneling, if you will.
[03:14:38] <Bytram> took quite the snow blower to be able to cope with THAT one!
[03:14:54] <cmn32480> gotta do it multiple times.
[03:15:01] <cmn32480> my blower is good to about 8 inches
[03:15:03] <cmn32480> of snow
[03:15:15] <Bytram> agreed
[03:15:29] <Bytram> the folks who decided to wait until it was over got a rude surprise.
[03:15:30] <cmn32480> my Dad's is goot to like 16-20
[03:15:40] <cmn32480> as will the fools here
[03:16:15] <Bytram> was quite a site to see 'em try and plow out the lot to my apt bld

[03:16:33] <cmn32480> I bet
[04:27:05] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[04:27:25] <Bytram|away> cmn32480: hope the storm causes you no distress and you come through smoothly
[04:28:27] <cmn32480> thanks Bytram|away

[21:43:56] <cmn32480> this storm has been a real bastard
[21:44:00] <cmn32480> still coming down
[21:44:05] <Bytram> how much snow so far?
[21:44:12] <cmn32480> I just got back in from the second round

[21:44:45] <SoyGuest57239> I got this error twice so far.
[21:44:48] <cmn32480> but I did the neighbor's driveway too
[21:45:03] <SoyGuest57239> It dumps a submission to the story list, but without any signoffs
[21:45:09] <SoyGuest57239> it does show that I posted it though
[21:45:09] <Bytram> cmn32480++ a friend in need is a friend indeed!
[21:45:09] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 35
[21:45:28] <SoyGuest57239> It's the reason I accidentally dumped a story twice earlier
[21:45:40] <Bytram> thanks for the heads up!
[21:45:46] * Bytram goes to look at the submission queue
[21:46:09] * cmn32480 needs to get cooking
[21:46:13] <Bytram> SoyGuest57239: how long ago did you try to submit the story?
[21:46:16] <SoyGuest57239> changed story title from "Us" to "It" to internationalize it
[21:46:32] <SoyGuest57239> I posted the story
[21:46:36] <SoyGuest57239> story list, not sub list
[21:46:40] <cmn32480> it's cold as a mother... I have venison... and all the fixin's for chili!
[21:46:43] <SoyGuest57239> 5 guesses who I am
[21:46:53] <cmn32480> heyas takyon
[21:47:00] <SoyGuest57239> venison chili huh, sounds neat
[21:47:13] <Bytram> chili++
[21:47:13] <Bender> karma - chili: 1
[21:47:17] <SoyGuest57239> my friend is very bullish on the venison industry
[21:47:25] <SoyGuest57239> and there are a lot of deer running around
[21:47:30] <Bytram> takyon++
[21:47:30] <Bender> karma - takyon: 15
[21:47:52] <Bytram> bullish on venison? oy vey!
[21:47:58] <SoyGuest57239> heheh
[21:48:47] <Bytram> SoyGuest57239: I see two stories with the same date/time stamp... but I guess one is set to NOT display.
[21:49:04] <SoyGuest57239> yeah I just set it not to display
[21:49:05] * Bytram is catching up on 2nding stories
[21:49:18] <SoyGuest57239> I frogot which 1970 date is our dump date so I left it there
[21:49:36] <SoyGuest57239> if you look at the not display one youll see it has no signoffs because of the bug
[21:49:37] <Bytram> set the time stamp to: 25:00 and it will disappear to the beginning of [Unix] time, IIRC
[21:49:47] <cmn32480> you set it to 0000-00-00
[21:49:59] <SoyGuest57239> so it shows up as red in my list because the system doesn't know i did first signoff
[21:51:38] * cmn32480 wonders if this Laura who keeps popping up ais a troll
[21:51:54] <SoyGuest57239> who
[21:52:23] <cmn32480> in #Soylent
[21:52:55] <cmn32480> "she" has popped up the last couple days and is a little different from our usual crowd
[21:54:29] <SoyGuest57239> ill check the scrollback
[21:54:48] <cmn32480> it is interesting if nothign else
[21:55:09] * Bytram wonders what kind of trolling is in mind; just in IRC or on the site, too.
[21:55:31] <cmn32480> seems liek just IRC
[21:56:12] <Bytram> nod nod
[21:56:30] <SoyGuest57239> who cares about IRC trolling though
[22:09:31] <crutchy> laura seems ok. {s}he likes cats apparently :p

[22:14:31] <cmn32480> i supose she can't be a complete computer numbskull... she's on IRC
[22:26:37] <Bytram> time for a nap.
[22:26:41] <Bytram> laters.

[23:43:13] <nick> After 2:30 p.m and you're on the road, we will arrest you @NYPDChiefofDept says
[23:43:13] <nick> — NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) January 23, 2016
[23:43:18] <nick> apparently that's a thing
[23:43:28] <cmn32480> not surprised
[23:43:34] <cmn32480> nick - http://imgur.com
[23:43:35] <exec> └─ 13snow - Album on Imgur
[23:45:32] <nick> lots of snow indeed
[23:45:58] <cmn32480> and god damn is it cold
[23:46:03] <cmn32480> wind is blowing
[23:46:07] <cmn32480> still snowing
[23:46:21] <cmn32480> I'll have another 4-5 inches by morning if the forcast is right
[23:47:19] <nick> not fun
[23:48:21] <cmn32480> no
[23:48:47] <cmn32480> they did the same thing in Baltimore.
[23:49:25] <cmn32480> basically said, if you are driving, you better be a medical professional, DOT/Fire/Police.
[23:49:35] <cmn32480> if not, you might just get your car impounded
[23:52:08] <nick> stupid people are stupid, i'd prefer a strong advisory about the roads being dangerous and emergency services cannot be expected to respond to road-traffic accidents
[23:52:36] <cmn32480> they will do it anyway, and then sue because they didn't listen
[23:52:52] <cmn32480> this way, it is straight illegal, you get arrested, adn you don't have a case
[23:54:11] <nick> yeah i just don't like the idea of it being illegal to travel.
[23:54:32] <cmn32480> understandable
[23:54:51] <nick> i find it a scary precedent to be set that 'when the weather gets bad' or in other instances 'when very serious crime happens' we can go into lockdown
[23:55:25] <cmn32480> that is a pretty big jump to make
[23:55:30] <cmn32480> they did the same thign on 9/11
[23:55:40] <nick> and boston
[23:55:43] <cmn32480> correct
[23:55:52] <cmn32480> not exactly a common occurrance
[23:56:17] <nick> indeed not, but that it happens at all is not really necessary in my opinion
[23:56:33] <cmn32480> allow Darwin to take his course
[23:56:45] <cmn32480> I gott run... wife just called me for dinner
[23:56:50] <nick> enjoy
[23:56:54] <cmn32480> bambi chili
[23:57:00] <cmn32480> I will! :-)
