[02:03:49] <snowfire> ^ 03SN article:  France Could Pass a "Right to Disconnect" Law 04(0 comments)
[02:03:59] <takmad> oy I did not make that comment
[02:04:07] <takmad> at the bottom of the summary
[02:04:13] <takmad> I will rekt u
[02:04:25] <takmad> that means you bytram
[02:04:47] <takmad> preface it with "Editor" or "martyb" next time
[02:05:01] * Bytram is looking
[02:05:55] <Bytram> strange! it was in what I saw when I reviewed the story... not in orginal! will fix asap!
[02:06:28] <Bytram> done
[02:06:38] <takmad> does that mean jannrinok added it?
[02:07:01] <Bytram> I have no idea how that got there! I did NOT add that!
[02:07:12] <Bytram> IIRC, it was in what I originally looked at.
[02:07:41] <takmad> well if we go by the original submission and timestamps of the editor signoffs, that be impossible
[02:07:47] <takmad> but yeh wheatver
[02:07:53] <takmad> need any editing help
[02:08:37] <Bytram> I have no idea what happened... generally, your submissions don't NEED editing
[02:09:07] <Bytram> I scan for typos, don't find any. looks good. approve. one and done.
[02:09:30] <takmad> editing isn't the problem, it was a rando remark that could possibly be attributed to me. not very objectionable, but not written by me
[02:09:48] <Bytram> I completely understand... happened to me on my first submission to the site.
[02:10:02] * Bytram was not much pleased
[02:10:25] <takmad> like the similar stuff added to the bottom of the Star Wars story is also not by me, but it's just factual, so I don't care
[02:11:12] <Bytram> ooops, that's my bad. Should have put it below the hr and noted it. I'll own that one.
[02:11:37] <takmad> my method is to put it above the HR but preface it with "takyon:"
[02:11:49] <Bytram> okay, I've invested waaaaay too much time trying to merge the AP and SI swimsuit VR stories.
[02:11:56] <takmad> really?
[02:12:06] <Bytram> please, anyone, try and make some sense of what I've cobbled together.
[02:12:15] <Bytram> atm it looks like word soup to me.
[02:12:21] <takmad> ok
[02:12:50] <takmad> oh wow your grammar really deteorirooroated there
[02:13:09] <takmad> plus you managed to get the HR inside the blockquote
[02:13:13] <takmad> I'll fix it
[02:14:14] <takmad> "It's nice that you can pan around and see the beautiful locations, without the models getting in the way." - Is this what you actually believe and not a quote from somewhere?
[02:14:14] <Bytram> quite likely... I'm really tired and it proved to be too many tabs, contexts, 'styles', and topics for me to track at once
[02:14:51] <Bytram> and, my kbd occasionally decides to go into ctrl-lock mode(!) press the ctrl key and it doesn't release... makes for some interesting outcomes
[02:14:51] <takmad> I think I know what to do now
[02:14:57] <Bytram> great!
[02:17:45] <takmad> updated, check it
[02:19:41] <Bytram> just found alink I almost lost: http://arstechnica.com

[02:19:43] <Bytram> oka
[02:20:38] <Bytram> ooops, VR was supposed to be scheduled for tomorrow... /me forgot to change release date/time
[02:21:56] <takyon> are the fixes sufficient
[02:22:06] <Bytram> looks much better!
[02:22:24] <Bytram> I have a very slow connection, so I have not checked the video links. :/
[02:22:42] <takyon> as long as the links are valid...eh
[02:23:09] <takyon> you going to change the release time?
[02:24:07] <Bytram> yep, and I'ma going to put the SI stuff on extended copy; 450+ words is too much for intro copy
[02:25:02] <Bytram> intro copy now down to 296 words; more than I'd like (I prefer 200 or or) but it'll be okay.
[02:25:10] * Bytram clicks update

[02:27:11] <Bytram> sigh.
[02:34:28] <takyon> w_w
[02:35:44] <Deucalion> How's things for our hard working eds?
[02:37:31] <Bytram> oops, was reading a story on the site (about star wars reprint) imagine that!
[02:37:38] * Bytram is tired, but good. You?
[02:38:41] <Deucalion> I want to know how the negatives were procured :/ I'm alright I guess.
[02:39:17] <Bytram> where else? E-Bay!
[02:39:20] <takyon> they bought it

[02:39:54] <Bytram> one copy was a spanish edition they got for soemthing like $2000
[02:40:09] <Bytram> I don't remember about the one they got before that.
[02:40:19] <Bytram> they are apparently working on a higher res version atm
[02:40:29] <takyon> 4K eh?
[02:41:29] <Bytram> not sure... it was mentioned in one of the story's links...
[02:41:30] <Deucalion> Can't say I understand the fascination, but I can appreciate the amount of time and effort involved.
[02:41:57] <Bytram> is like removing grafitti from your childhood home
[02:42:10] <Bytram> here it is: http://moviemezzanine.com
[02:42:12] <snowfire> ^ 03The Fans Who Saved Star Wars | Movie Mezzanine
[02:42:21] <Bytram> in there somewhere
[02:42:51] <takyon> <Bytram> is like removing grafitti from your childhood home
[02:42:59] <takyon> easily the funniest thing i've read on IRC today
[02:49:40] <Bytram> glad you liked it... but I was more than a little bit serious.
[02:51:02] <Bytram> going back to my childhood home, with many happy memories, and seeing that the new owners had repainted it, added a cheap addition, and it was subsequently hit with graffiti... that feeling of longing for how things used-to-be is very strong.
[02:51:27] <Bytram> that is how I view the fans efforts at restoring the original
[02:51:36] <Bytram> ok, break time; biab
[02:51:51] <takyon> 2real
[03:20:25] * Bytram reads the Library of Congress' star wars 'film essay': https://www.loc.gov
[03:27:45] <takyon> there are grammar mistakes in this essay
[03:27:50] <takyon> step it up Library of Congress
[03:29:28] <Bytram> yes, there are, but I take it they were in the original and it was kept as-is.
[03:41:30] <Bytram> that said, they could have sprinkled a [sic] or three into the document. :)

[20:33:33] <takyon> checking in
[22:34:29] <takyon> hey
[22:35:39] <takyon> i just updated the Apple v. FBI article
[22:35:45] <takyon> added some links at the bottom
[22:35:53] <takyon> there's a lot more but those tidbits stood out

[23:18:39] <SoyCow32480> i've written probably the most random submission I've done all month
[23:30:40] <SoyCow32480> I did a big gap between latest 2 stories
[23:30:44] <SoyCow32480> since subs are dry
[23:30:59] <SoyCow32480> I might sub enough to keep us alive
[23:31:06] <SoyCow32480> plus the Apple story is huuuge
