[02:55:32] <cmn32480> there are more lies in that paragraph....
[02:57:02] <Bytram> so, think we should run a story?
[02:57:11] <cmn32480> certainly
[02:57:18] <cmn32480> there is already on in the sub queue
[02:57:22] <cmn32480> that's how we all found out
[02:57:34] * Bytram goes to look again
[02:57:40] <cmn32480> I think we ought to wait until morning
[02:57:46] <cmn32480> 2nd or thirid form the bottmom
[02:58:00] <Bytram> yesp, found it, now.
[02:58:38] <Bytram> have you looked at the *story* queue lately?
[02:58:46] <chromas> "Slashdot sold. No information. Please speculate."
[02:59:01] <Bytram> that could be fun. ;)
[02:59:06] <cmn32480> lol
[02:59:07] <cmn32480> yes
[02:59:21] <cmn32480> and I'have been answering emial all night and not 2nding sotries
[02:59:28] <chromas> then you can do a followup later
[02:59:35] <chromas> that's two stories in the queue
[02:59:52] * chromas picks up some fish and bread
[03:00:00] <Bytram> oh, atm, the sub queue and the story queue are both in good shape
[03:00:12] * Bytram hopes that observation doesn't jinx things
[03:00:24] <cmn32480> prolly... but forgiven
[03:00:33] <cmn32480> and monster job on the story queue bytram
[03:00:43] <Bytram> we got 22 subs still in the queue; and there are stories queued until 21:00 UTC on Friday
[03:00:55] <Bytram> mare sea!

[03:01:21] <Bytram> 2^5
[03:01:25] <Bytram> =)
[03:02:21] * Bytram wonders who will run a story about the /. buyout first: Ars or El Reg?
[03:02:33] * Bytram bet is on Ars
[03:02:37] <cmn32480> el reg
[03:05:13] <Bytram> I'm thnking it is only 7PM in california; bound to be someone still awake to get a story out; is 0300 in UK; not so likely.
[03:05:43] <Bytram> unless, of course, they've stayed up from the night before as any self-respecting geek knows full-well.
[03:05:56] <cmn32480> I only kinda care to be honest
[03:06:16] <cmn32480> other than the usual worry about an influx of morons
[03:06:24] <chromas> But I'm already here

[03:07:22] <chromas> (minus extra m)
[03:07:48] <cmn32480> as opposed to SoylentBob who was here earlier?
[03:08:55] <chromas> /nick SlashDolt
[03:09:10] <chromas> that way you can see where I'm coming from
[03:10:24] <cmn32480> we know where you ar coming from chromas
[03:10:40] <cmn32480> but we hav managed to block that from our minds and not remember it
[03:18:33] <cmn32480> we covered the paint drtying move back in November.
[03:18:40] <cmn32480> I added the link ot the previous story
[03:20:54] <Bytram> yes, we did, and I completely forgot to link back to it. good catch!
[03:20:59] <Bytram> teamwork++
[03:20:59] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 68
[03:21:08] * cmn32480 blushes
[03:22:12] <cmn32480> I'm done
[03:22:20] <cmn32480> too tired to keep going tonight

[03:22:47] * exec accidentally passes a used franger of red cordial to editorial
[03:23:21] <Bytram> btw, if it were *me* who submitted that movie, I don't know if I could have resisted the temptation to have a little steganography in it. Every 60th frame, say, have an overlay of a lightly tinged graphic. playback at very high speed with tinted glasses would reveal the additional, overlaid, video.
[03:23:30] <Bytram> cmn32480: much obliged, mon ami!
[03:23:34] <Bytram> have a good night!

[04:06:08] <Bytram> correction: whisplash has UID 4433507 -- "long time reader of Slashdot"
[04:06:43] * Bytram notes his /. UID is sub 200k
[04:14:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> six digits here too
[04:15:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> lost my five digit one cause i joined the army and proceeded to forget my login
[04:18:55] <Bytram> bummer
[04:19:46] <Bytram> I actually lurked on the site before it even had UIDs but was overly nervous of putting out any information about myself to set up an acct; could easily have had a 2- or 3-digit uid
[04:20:19] <Bytram> also remember when the user db got trashed and people had to recreate their accts, had another chance, then, too.
[04:20:28] * Bytram hugs his 2-digit SN UID
