[15:59:27] <Bytram|away> bah! Just discovered that Opera autoupdates itself... without warning and without asking... just watched a 30-40MB download proceed without warning. :(
[16:00:01] <takyon> I think I still have old opera
[16:00:26] <Bytram|away> Let's see if the autoupdate can be blocked: C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\35.0.2066.68>ren opera_autoupdate.exe opera_autoupdate.xex
[16:00:51] <Bytram|away> maybe I should create something to put in its place?
[16:02:02] <Bytram|away> hmmm, maybe this: copy c:\windows\system32\calc.exe opera_autoupdate.exe
[16:02:39] <Bytram|away> giving it a try... am curious how it responds
[16:26:22] <janrinok> Bytram|away, hi !!!
[16:26:39] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[16:26:45] <Bytram> janrinok: WOWEE! HI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[16:26:51] <Bytram> how ARE you?
[16:26:53] <janrinok> how's things?
[16:27:04] <Bytram> all-in-all, good.
[16:27:19] * Bytram is trying to write up a 2nd year anniv story
[16:27:27] <janrinok> me, not so good. S is making good progess, I've had to see the cardiologist and have been told to take it easy
[16:27:41] <Bytram> so sorry to hear that!
[16:27:51] <janrinok> very frustrating for me too!
[16:27:59] <Bytram> you care so much about her, I'm sure you don't take as good care of yourself as you should.
[16:28:15] <Bytram> I often find it easier to do for others what I should be doing for myself.
[16:28:15] <janrinok> that's roughly what he said...
[16:28:32] <Bytram> Dr. Bytram at your service.
[16:28:47] <takyon> is the anniversary story late bytram
[16:28:49] <janrinok> send the bill to the usual address - the round bin in the corner
[16:28:56] <Bytram> I'm glad to hear that she is improving, that must be a relief.
[16:29:08] <Bytram> nah, I'll just deduct 10% of your SN pay. ;)
[16:29:13] <janrinok> still a way to go but I/we are pleased with the progress
[16:29:22] <Bytram> that is WONDERFUL news!
[16:29:31] <Bytram> please give her my best
[16:29:58] <janrinok> I have - she sends you a hug back!
[16:30:17] * Bytram blushes
[16:30:58] <janrinok> takyon, I don't think that the anniversary story is late - there were many milestones that could be taken as the 'start'
[16:31:29] <takyon> oh man that bug is showing up again
[16:31:45] <takyon> click on the anniversay story link in editor sessions, got a completely different submission
[16:31:46] <janrinok> how does it show itself?>
[16:31:50] <takyon> TheMightyBuzzard
[16:32:15] <takyon> Current Editor/Admin Sessions is still linking the wrong submissions, just so you know
[16:32:24] <takyon> says "Happy Anniversary to SoylentNews!", links to...
[16:32:33] <Bytram> here's a story I just found in #rss-bot: http://arstechnica.com

[16:33:05] <janrinok> ah, so this is not a bug in your latest update for greasemonkey?
[16:33:09] <takyon> so none of that CGI bullshit? great
[16:33:15] <takyon> hell no it isn't
[16:33:26] <takyon> i submitted this bug before I think
[16:33:27] <janrinok> I'm looking in the wrong place then :(

[16:34:15] <takyon> Bytram: scroll down to the bottom of any page
[16:34:24] <Bytram> takyon: nod nod; can you please paste the link that YOU clicked?

[16:35:15] <Bytram> janrinok: So good to 'SEE' you!

[16:35:44] <snowfire> ^ 03- SoylentNews User ( https://soylentnews.org )
[16:35:50] <takyon> yeah the bug is submitted here: https://github.com
[16:35:51] <snowfire> ^ 03Editor Interface Bug(s) · Issue #232 · SoylentNews/rehash · GitHub
[16:35:57] <Bytram> that should be for the laser beam story
[16:36:23] <Bytram> takyon: a factor to consider, as far as I recall, I have not yet hit 'save' on the anniv story
[16:36:40] <takyon> the only factor to consider is this shit is broke yo
[16:36:43] <Bytram> but, I am working on it, and have had it open in a tab in my browser for a couple days.
[16:37:06] <Bytram> true that, but just trying to provide info that might help track down the cause.
[16:37:23] <takyon> I already did that in the Issue #232 linked above
[16:38:06] <Bytram> great! thanks!!
[16:39:16] <takyon> do you want me to submit the Star Wars story
[16:40:58] <Bytram> that would be great!
[16:44:51] <Bytram> am almost done with a draft of the 2-year anniv story, but know I am forgetting something. :(
[16:47:50] <takyon> done with sub
[16:48:40] <Bytram> merci!
[16:49:32] <Bytram> okay, just saved anniv story... dated a couple days from now so there is time to update/refine it, but would like to run it sooner than later.
[16:49:43] <Bytram> edit link: https://soylentnews.org
[16:49:44] <snowfire> ^ 03- SoylentNews User ( https://soylentnews.org )
[16:53:24] <takyon> I didn't even know we had soylent swag
[16:54:18] <takyon> what % of those exorbitant prices does Soylentnews get?
[16:59:11] <Bytram> I don't recall offhand... mrcool would know, and i suspect it *might* be on the wiki
[17:04:08] * Bytram checked some log files but hasn't been able to track it down.
[17:19:18] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org
[17:19:20] <snowfire> ^ 03SN article:  SoylentNews-Branded Swag Store: Official Launch 04(40 comments)
[17:19:32] <Bytram> unfortunately, I could find no details there.
[17:29:03] <takyon> crazy that nobody would ask that question
[17:29:56] <Bytram> I would imagine it's prolly in one of the archived IRC logs around that time
[17:33:35] <takyon> don't worry aout it, i'll ask mrcool*p later
[17:36:47] <Bytram> nod nod
[17:37:13] <Bytram> I trimmed a paragraph off the star wars story's quoted section and am adding a bit at the end.
[17:37:49] <takyon> whatever you want
[17:38:38] * Bytram notes a commentor a while ago suggested we need to be mindful of safe harbor provisions as to how much of a story we quote.
[17:39:11] <takyon> i never quote 100% of the story
[17:39:20] <Bytram> understood.
[17:40:09] * Bytram notes that problem is there are no hard-and-fast rules that I am aware of where fair use ends and infringement begins, so given our limited resources, we need to err on the side of caution, IMO
[17:41:00] <Bytram> story saved

[19:25:00] <Bytram> janrinok: wb!
[19:25:05] <Bytram> now go back to bed!
[19:25:06] <Bytram> =)
[19:25:55] * Bytram goes to warm up some soup for lunch
[19:25:56] <janrinok> in about 10 minutes or so
[19:29:29] <Bytram> fair enough
[19:29:45] <Bytram> glad to see thzat things have improvd enough on your end that you can make some time to stop by and say hi!
[19:30:34] <janrinok> I've also 2nd'ed a few - a small contribution but I hope it helps
[19:31:04] <Bytram> oh, it does, and I noticed!
[19:31:07] <Bytram> thanks!!!
[19:31:43] <janrinok> I'm just going to have a read of your anniversary story
[19:32:10] <Bytram> btw, should it be 'anniversary' or 'birthday' ??
[19:32:32] <Bytram> am open to any and all suggestions... that is just a draft to get the story out there.
[19:34:57] <Bytram> am especially interested in any errors of *omission*
[19:35:23] <janrinok> I don't suppose it matters much - but the creation of a website would have an anniversary rather than a birthday to my mind, but that might just be the UK way of seeing things
[19:36:02] <janrinok> I don't think that you have missed anything out - at least not at first sight
[19:36:12] <Bytram> anniversary of its appearance seems the more apropos way of looking at it.
[19:36:45] <Bytram> there are areas/corners of the site that I do not often visit, and services we provide as well, and it is hard to remember *all* of them.
[19:36:51] <Bytram> appreciate your feedback!
[19:36:55] <janrinok> a lot has happened on the site in that 2 years
[19:37:23] <Bytram> oh!!!! we now accept credit cards for subscriptions!
[19:37:29] <Bytram> should really include that in there somewhere
[19:37:52] <janrinok> I would have preferred to see a much larger community but I think that the ones that we have are a good bunch so no complaints
[19:38:20] <Bytram> agreed... quality >> quantity
[19:38:40] <janrinok> the CC news is good for me, I can now get someone to pay my subscription yet maintain my anonymity :)
[19:39:13] <Bytram> or, even, get a prepaid cc (paid for with cash) and use THAT
[19:39:30] <janrinok> we don't have prepaid cards in France
[19:40:28] <Bytram> didn't know that.
[19:40:51] <janrinok> I've got friends in the motherland who will pay on my behalf and who understand why I would want them to
[19:40:55] <Bytram> might be a business opportunity for someone there!
[19:40:59] <Bytram> nod ndo
[19:41:08] * Bytram goes to fetch soup brb
[19:43:33] <Bytram> back
[19:51:23] <janrinok> gtg - enjoy your lunch, and hopefully I'll be back on tomorrow or over the w/e
[19:53:55] <janrinok> Bytram, bye - have a good one!
[19:54:15] <Bytram> merci!
[19:54:19] <Bytram> take good care!
