[02:32:09] <Bytram> wasn't sure what else to use except "N.B." -- it's not a postscript (P.S.) -- it's not a footnote -- it's something to pay attention to, something that it would be good to take heed of.
[02:33:03] <Bytram> cmn32480: you still on the road or have you made it back home yet?
[02:33:22] <cmn32480> HA!

[18:27:42] <Bytram> CoolHand: I'm certainly open to changing the dept, but found it to be a whimsical play on TLA
[18:34:50] <CoolHand> yeah, I just didn't dig deep enough to understand it... rough day at work
[18:41:40] <Bytram> so sorry to hear that! tech challenges? users? all of the above?

[19:22:35] * Bytram waves at nick
[19:28:05] <CoolHand> Bytram: finger pointing issues for performance problems getting ready for a huge project go live
[19:28:30] <Bytram> borrow a mirror from Medusa?
[19:28:46] <Bytram> but seriously, that sucks.
[19:29:19] <Bytram> can they just throw hardware at it? Time *is* money, after all.
[19:29:44] <Bytram> btw, thanks for the 2nds on the stories I pushed out!!!
[19:37:33] <CoolHand> n/p.. (and seems we have plenty of hardware)
[19:38:33] <Bytram> urk... got the time write, but forgot to change the date on a story I pushed out.
[19:39:15] <Bytram> looks like it only got 2 'hits',so not TOO bad.
[19:55:52] * CoolHand has never done that...
[19:55:55] <CoolHand> :)
[19:56:09] * Bytram neither! ;)
[19:56:53] <CoolHand> I'm so bad about it, I usually stry to save as non-display to check my time, then go back in to either display or edit the time.. :)
[19:57:36] <Bytram> now THAT is an idea!
[19:58:45] <Bytram> I've been thinking of a way for the code to autosuggest a date/time based on some delta off the current top-two-newest stories (in case there is one queued up for a special release; e.g. site upgrade)
[19:58:59] <Bytram> not sure how the UI should work, though
[19:59:11] <CoolHand> sounds like a peachy idea, if it could be implemented..
[19:59:12] <Bytram> currently, it defaults to about 20 minutes from the current date.time
[20:00:39] <CoolHand> seems like an 1h40m default or so would be nicer, at least that would be correct a lot of time..
[20:01:05] <CoolHand> oh, not from current time,f rom last story
[20:01:37] <CoolHand> hopefully queue is never low enough to do 20 min from cur time
[20:01:45] <Bytram> yep.
[20:02:05] <Bytram> that would work for the VAST majority of cases but, there are times (ha!) when
[20:02:23] <Bytram> there is a story queued up for release well ahead of time, need some way to ignore THAT one
[20:02:43] -!- nick has quit [Ping timeout: 268 seconds]
[20:02:50] <CoolHand> yep
[20:03:29] <Bytram> I spose, even if we were in that kind of a situation, it would beno worse than what we haThe U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Argonne National Laboratory is working with Achates Power, Inc., and Delphi Automotive to develop an innovative new engine that could yield efficiency gains of up to 50 percent over a comparable conventional engine.e right now where the offered date/time always needs to be changed
[20:03:34] <Bytram> oops.
[20:03:45] <Bytram> I spose, even if we were in that kind of a situation, it would beno worse than what we hae right now where the offered date/time always needs to be changed
[20:04:28] <Bytram> so, default to 1h30m + (rand(1..9))m from 'top-most' scheduled story.
[20:04:39] <Bytram> or...
[20:05:10] <Bytram> default to 1h40m + (rand(-5..+5))m from 'top-most' scheduled story.
[20:19:42] <CoolHand> sounds good to me :)
