[01:45:31] <cmn32480> I didn't see the second one or I woudl ahve merged
[01:46:06] <Bytram> yeah, I was just about to post tak's story, and then we had one going live RSN
[01:50:26] <Bytram> dropped out of it and then came on here to see what's up.
[01:53:07] <cmn32480> the servers for a change...
[01:53:15] <cmn32480> since you broke somethign upstream of linode
[01:54:20] <Bytram> okay, I've read both stem cells stories... both refer to the same journal article
[01:54:30] <Bytram> once quotes University of Cambrdige
[01:54:41] <Bytram> he other Researchers at Michigan State University
[01:54:56] <cmn32480> DOH

[02:00:08] <Bytram> will prolly wait a bit... maybe a day, and then run tak
[02:00:16] <Bytram> s story with a ref to today's story.
[02:00:48] <cmn32480> ok
[02:00:51] <cmn32480> sounds like a plan
[02:00:57] <cmn32480> I'm not up to merging either atm
[02:01:06] <cmn32480> feeling like crap and I have to get pack ed for tomorrow

[03:10:52] <takyon> hi
[03:11:09] <takyon> oh that explains why cmn was around
[03:11:14] <takyon> hadnt't left yet

[03:11:32] <Bytram> takyon: thanks for the story submissions!
[03:11:38] <takyon> np
[03:11:42] <Bytram> I *did* merge the stories as you suggested
[03:11:56] * Bytram is too tired to remember the title.
[03:12:00] <takyon> looks fine
[03:12:16] <Bytram> oh, it was the Amazon Fire OS story.
[03:12:34] <takyon> looks good
[03:12:56] <takyon> I was surprised it was reversed, the initial move had a "permanence" sort of feel to it
[03:13:11] <takyon> and yet they promised to bring it back months later. that should fuel some conspiracy
[03:13:27] <Bytram> THAT thought also crossed my mind.
[03:14:20] <takyon> it should be known that CIA is a big customer of Amazon's
[03:14:30] <takyon> Amazon Web Services
[03:14:35] <Bytram> seems silly to ever think that one can take anything away from someone;

[19:36:45] <Bytram> Yes, I know it is US-centric... but there's quite a world-wide legacy from Ronald Reagan's SDI (star wars) program and from Nancy's efforts to combat Alzheimer's disease.

[22:04:39] <Bytram> hola!
[22:04:51] <nick> hola!
[22:05:06] <Bytram> need another brain to help out with a story
[22:05:14] <Bytram> mine is getting rather tired.
[22:05:18] <Bytram> this story: https://soylentnews.org
[22:05:19] <webscale> ^ 03SN Submission by butthurt: Anti-immigrant rally in California is marred by altercation
[22:05:48] <Bytram> I'm not thinking it would be a good fit for our community's interests.
[22:05:50] <nick> well isn't that topical after the dicking around that was going on in the main channel a while ago
[22:05:51] <Bytram> Your thoughts?
[22:05:59] <nick> ima read it now
[22:06:16] <Bytram> like I said, I'm tired, and i'm looking at it from the viewpoint of our entire community.
[22:08:03] <nick> read the summary, going to read The Guardian TFA
[22:08:16] <Bytram> k
[22:10:10] <Bytram> hmmm, after reading that... I am more of a mind now to actually run the story.
[22:10:34] <nick> i wouldn't say it's of general interest as such, but the summary isn't misrepresenting anything and to reject it is probably just as harmful as running it in some ways
[22:10:41] <nick> bit of a catch 22 from my perspective
[22:10:46] <Bytram> nod nod
[22:11:17] <Bytram> the more I think about it, it is along the lines of: "I may disgree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
[22:11:21] <Bytram> (something like that)
[22:11:28] <nick> pretty much
[22:11:39] <nick> ive never seen 'KKK' so many times
[22:11:45] <nick> it's quite jarring
[22:12:08] <Bytram> It *is* a bit of a turn-off; same here
[22:13:29] <nick> going to read the Daily Mail article now to compare the tone and the number of 'KKK' used out of curiosity
[22:13:45] <Bytram> k
[22:15:00] <nick> i think we should run it
[22:15:18] <Bytram> yep... grabbing some stuff from guardian article to include
[22:15:33] <Bytram> thanks SO much for the feedback... ws getting a brain cramp!
[22:17:06] <nick> np, i know how it goes
[22:19:07] <Bytram> starting to look like word soup... story saved.
[22:19:19] <Bytram> nick++ # thanks for the helping hand
[22:19:20] <Bender> karma - nick: 8
[22:27:03] <Bytram> okay, I'm pretty knackered and am gonna take a nap...
[22:27:24] <Bytram> here's a link I found that could make for an interesting 'privacy/security' story:

[22:27:52] <nick> nap well good sir
[22:28:36] <Bytram|away> thanks! meant to ask you... how have YOU been? I know things were rather, umm, 'hectic' and challenging there for quite the sctretch...
[22:28:47] <Bytram|away> ahve things calmed down for ya?
[22:29:05] <nick> being in south america for a couple weeks has forced a little calm on me
[22:29:14] <Bytram|away> VERY nice!
[22:29:27] <nick> so yeah, i have the best excuses not to work right now
[22:29:27] <Bytram|away> so happy for you... you needed and deserved the break!
[22:29:35] <Bytram|away> nod nod
[22:29:38] <nick> i mean i could, but im not going to.
[22:29:52] <Bytram|away> thanks again for the helping hand, much appreciated!
[22:29:54] <takyon> are you sure you want to run the immigrant/kkk story?
[22:30:04] <takyon> I put in hundreds of subs so you don't have to run that crap
[22:30:25] <Bytram|away> last I looked there were 5 subs left
[22:30:30] <Bytram|away> now there are 4
[22:30:33] <nick> takyon: my opinion it's a catch 22 in running it or not
[22:30:48] <nick> racists can be victims too
[22:30:49] <Bytram|away> and it *does* to pertain to freedom of expression.
[22:30:54] <Bytram|away> ^^^
[22:31:48] <Bytram|away> I was against running it at first, but the more I looked at the story, I had to agree that as much as I may disagree with their viewpoints, they have just as much of a right to express them as anyone else.
[22:31:54] <nick> i'd like to leave it up for the community to respond and hopefully take the moral high ground
[22:32:07] <Bytram|away> I suspect it will lead ot an 'interesting' discussion.
[22:32:09] <Bytram|away> ;)
[22:32:14] <Bytram|away> anyway; nap time.
[22:32:17] <Bytram|away> laters!
