[16:30:53] <Bytram> make it a half-pound and I'll get the spaghetti sauce ready
[16:31:13] <cmn32480> my wet noodle IS a half pound
[16:31:15] <cmn32480> nograb
[16:31:35] * Bytram ain't grabbing your wet noodle!
[16:31:37] <Bytram> nograb
[16:32:54] <cmn32480> can't grab actions, unfortunately
[16:33:15] * Bytram tries to imagine grab as a noun... and fails
[16:36:51] <cmn32480> mna... hubie writes a good summary!
[16:37:41] <Bytram> which story?
[16:37:49] <cmn32480> the gravitational waves
[16:38:01] <cmn32480> but everythign I 've seen from him has been good so far
[16:38:38] <Bytram> yep, covers a goodly part of the: who what where when why and how questions
[16:39:07] * Bytram just pulled a story out of hold and fleshed it out beyond the original single sentence and link
[16:39:25] * cmn32480 is seconding
[16:39:41] <Bytram> jsut realized I forgot to put something in that story.
[16:39:46] <Bytram> (Fourier visual)
[17:46:10] <Bytram> cmn32480: I see you have 'Most Recent Journal Entries' selected in 'Customize Slashboxes' for the main page
[17:46:24] <Bytram> got a question for ya about a possible improvement
[17:46:24] <cmn32480> yes
[17:46:37] <cmn32480> and how do you see that? been probing the DB again?
[17:47:05] * Bytram has some admin powahs that let's me look at user's settings
[17:47:15] <Bytram> anyway, the first two entries there look something like:
[17:47:16] <Bytram> [takyon] Two interesting BBC Trending stories
[17:47:16] <Bytram> [shortscreen] x86 CPU trivia
[17:47:16] <Bytram> [GungnirSniper] Delayed Stories vs. Slashdot
[17:47:27] <Bytram> okay, first THREE stories
[17:47:52] <cmn32480> no
[17:48:00] <Bytram> clicking on any of those goes to the user's Journal *page* and not directly to the story I clicked on
[17:48:04] <cmn32480> [MichaelDavidCrawford] Tent Burglar
[17:48:04] <cmn32480> [takyon] Two interesting BBC Trending stories
[17:48:04] <cmn32480> [shortscreen] x86 CPU trivia
[17:48:04] <cmn32480> [GungnirSniper] Delayed Stories vs. Slashdot
[17:48:41] <Bytram> huh. /me needs to refresh his page.
[17:48:59] <Bytram> okay, so I click on MDC's entry
[17:49:10] <Bytram> It brings me to his journal *page*
[17:49:33] <cmn32480> then you cringe...
[17:49:37] <cmn32480> and try anoher
[17:51:13] <cmn32480> that is correct
[17:51:34] <cmn32480> but the entry, if on the "Recent" slashbox, is new
[17:51:38] <cmn32480> and likely at the top
[17:51:45] <Bytram> just finished reading. Ugh!
[17:51:55] <cmn32480> yeah
[17:52:35] <Bytram> the point being, when I click on a "story" on the main page, it takes me to the story *AND* the comments.
[17:52:52] <cmn32480> so you wanna fix the slash box?
[17:53:00] <Bytram> in the journal, I gotta click on the comment count under the journal entry to actually get to the comments
[17:53:21] <Bytram> also, if there was a journal entry I found interesting, I need to keep opening it to see if anyone has added another comment
[17:53:23] <Bytram> yes
[17:53:33] <Bytram> so, I'm thinking of making a change
[17:53:46] <Bytram> not sure if I can actually *DO* it, but here's what I would like:
[17:54:57] <Bytram> <a href="link_to_user's_journal_page">[$user_nick]</a> <a href="story_link">$story_title</a> ($comment_count)
[17:55:01] <Bytram> e.g.
[17:55:20] <Bytram> [martyb] Latest Thoughts (3)
[17:56:11] <Bytram> clicking on "martyb" takes me to: my journal *page*
[17:57:38] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org
[17:57:45] <shekel> ^ 03Journal of martyb (76)
[17:58:12] <Bytram> clicking on "Latest Thoughts" would take me to the actual Journal Article and all its comments
[17:58:37] <Bytram> and the count would be just a text field that was just displayed (not clickable)
[17:58:45] <cmn32480> ok
[17:59:36] <Bytram> so, you get the idea. was wondering what your thoughts were on it?
[18:00:37] <Bytram> I'm thinking I can't be the only one who wants to follow a journal entry, and having the comment count visible would make it more useful and popular
[18:01:00] <cmn32480> at that point why not jsut set it up to message when a new comment is posted?
[18:02:05] <Bytram> good question... I guess because I can just scan down the list of Journal entries and, at-a-glance, see if I want to dive in and see what has been added.
[18:02:15] <Bytram> is quicker for me to hve all the info in one place.
[18:04:48] <Bytram> btw, we've already had TWO stripe subscriptions come in today! =)
[18:05:21] <cmn32480> mrc's test sub don't count
[18:05:31] <Bytram> not counting that one
[18:05:35] <cmn32480> good
[18:05:40] <Bytram> YUPPERS!
[18:06:33] <Bytram> I realized after the site update story went live and told people that we now support Stripe, that there was no link in the story to the Subscription sign-up page! Added that in early today.
[18:06:56] <cmn32480> saw that in the backscroll
[18:07:29] <Bytram> kewel
[18:08:05] * cmn32480 goes for more coffee++
[18:08:37] <Bytram> I picked up some cheap DVDs a few days ago, and am debating which one to watch: "The Fifth Element', 'I Am Legend', and 'Inception'
[18:09:25] * Bytram has seen 5th element before, but Milla Jovovich and Bruce Willis put in great performances, so wouldn't mind seeing again.
[18:09:30] <Bytram> have you seen either of the others?
[18:09:33] <cmn32480> can't make a recommendation... never seen any of them
[18:09:38] <Bytram> nod nod
[18:10:08] * cmn32480 notes he wouldn't mid seeing mill jovovitch putting on a different kind of performance
[18:10:40] <Bytram> noted. ♩♪♩♫♪
[18:10:43] * cmn32480 also thinks he's got the new door security software figured out!
[18:11:04] <Bytram> nice!
[18:11:13] <Bytram> find any back 'doors' ??
[18:11:22] <cmn32480> nope
[18:11:24] * Bytram channels jim morrison
[18:11:28] <cmn32480> unless you count the one in the warehouse
[18:11:35] <Bytram> Rider's on the Storm
[18:11:43] <cmn32480> Set up the Door.
[18:11:45] <Bytram> oh, yeah.
[18:11:47] <Bytram> LOL
[18:11:49] <Bytram> hold on
[18:11:51] <cmn32480> Assign it to a zone
[18:12:03] <cmn32480> Create an access group
[18:12:25] <Bytram> nod nod
[18:12:27] <cmn32480> Create a Group Access assignment schedule under the Access assignment
[18:12:45] <cmn32480> *under the access group
[18:12:51] <cmn32480> assign the user to the group
[18:13:12] <cmn32480> ie: Tech has Door 1 assigned
[18:13:20] <Bytram> nod nod
[18:13:51] <cmn32480> the Access Group "Tech" has 2 Groups assignment schedules assigned
[18:13:59] <cmn32480> 24x7 and 7a-6p
[18:14:29] <cmn32480> the cardholder gets one (or both) of those schedules assigned, and that is how it knows to let your ass in or not!
[18:14:43] * cmn32480 is gonna need to write up a cheat sheet
