[02:24:49] <Bytram> is that about the quesitonable accuracy of the heart rate monitor?
[02:24:59] <cmn32480> yes
[02:25:06] <Bytram> good!
[02:25:09] <cmn32480> I dont' remember seeing that run... but I coudl be wrong
[02:25:25] <Bytram> there was an excellent discussion about that on Ars within the past few weeks
[02:25:45] * Bytram pretty much only has time to follow SN and Ars
[02:25:58] * Bytram tries to rememebr the articlw
[02:26:23] <cmn32480> I dind't see the Ars story

[02:43:43] <cmn32480> thoughts on the Deathmonkey poll?
[02:43:51] * Bytram is trying to summarize a story that is, in iteself, a summary of another story.
[02:44:08] * cmn32480 leaves bytram alone until he is done
[02:44:16] <Bytram> haven't looked... brain is kinda busy keeping track of deatails in the story that he is trying to submit.

[03:36:36] <takyon> checking in
[03:37:02] <takyon> WSJ articles are usually available elsewhere, such as on foreign news websites or in excerpt form at MarketWatch

[12:03:41] <takyon> breaking news
[13:47:45] <nick> is broken?
[22:18:15] <takyon> triple submission including mine on the Assange story
[22:21:06] <paulej72> i am broken
[22:21:45] <takyon> you'll be fixed soon enough

[22:28:58] <exec> editor ping for takyon: janrinok LaminatorX n1 nick martyb Bytram Azrael mrcoolbp cmn32480 coolhand takyon cmn32480|away bytram|away
[22:29:25] <takyon> I pushed the Assange story for 31 minutes from now since there was a triple submission (well, including mine)
[22:29:38] <takyon> i will move the following story to 90 mins from now
[22:29:44] <nick> i will 2nd
[22:29:55] <takyon> as has been the case recently, we have a nice glut of submissions
[22:30:17] <takyon> in fact I haven't even submitted what I wanted to sub today, like the asteroid mining story or Congress pissing on NASA Mars plan story
[22:31:54] <takyon> also note that there are bunch of "thestack.com" stories in the hold, along with unwanted P666 stuff
[22:32:05] <takyon> like a story from 2013
[22:33:25] <nick> just havn't been keeping up with the queues, barely keeping up with general headlines at the moment
[22:34:45] <nick> when the dice sells slashdot happened i ended up on: http://www.einnews.com
[22:34:47] <shekel> ^ 03Live Feed Wire - EIN News
[22:35:12] <takyon> dang that is something
[22:35:20] <takyon> I prefer Google News but that loads fast
[22:35:56] <takyon> I am developing a news-related free product, so I will steal all these ideas
[22:35:59] <nick> the press release on the purchase was through ein, and i didn't recall them
[22:36:14] <nick> nice
[22:36:45] <takyon> I should get it into Google Play. would be a chance to practice crApp development
[22:37:18] <nick> got an overview of the project or anything?
[22:38:46] * takyon thinks
[22:40:17] <takyon> locally stored code, lists and loads RSS feeds, organization of news topics, possibly a way to grab radio/video streams, weather/finance/etc. all in a tabbed interface
[22:43:57] <nick> that would be very useful
[22:44:09] <nick> it's something i want for sure
[22:46:45] <nick> takyon CoolHand : opinion on the headline for 'e dollar' story
[22:46:58] <takyon> ok
[22:47:21] <nick> the central banks havn't 'announced' anything that i can tell.
[22:47:28] <nick> so the headline is just clickbait
[23:21:10] <takyon> https://soylentnews.org
[23:21:41] <takyon> "Central banks are planning to implement a new form of currency that has the potential of being an even more profound change than 1913, 1933, 1945, or 1971." what a shit sentence
[23:22:36] <takyon> this article looks like absolute trash to me
[23:23:12] <takyon> i'm killing it
[23:23:25] <cmn32480> set no display...
[23:23:36] <cmn32480> I'll peek at it after I get the kids in bed
[23:23:48] <takyon> done
