[03:41:01] juggs is now known as Deucalion
[04:21:52] <nick> Deucalion: did you just set the TEDx Q&A to go live?
[04:22:43] <Deucalion> I thought I set it to go live at noon.... but it immediately went Green... I fuckzed up?
[04:22:53] <nick> no
[04:23:04] <nick> im more thinking that putting it up on a saturday is not the best
[04:23:20] <nick> slow weekends are not necessarily a good way to ensure maximum response
[04:24:03] <Deucalion> I thought it might be better at the weekend as to fully read it requires a watch of a ~30 minute video... sounds right for over coffee / breakfast
[04:24:29] <nick> i think expecting people to watch a 30min video is a stretch on any day
[04:24:55] <Deucalion> It's well summarised in the article
[04:24:59] <nick> given the lack of video and such we have the rest of the time
[04:25:20] <nick> i'd just think more eyes will see and perhaps respond if it goes on on monday
[04:25:22] <nick> just my 2c
[04:25:29] <nick> out on*
[04:27:14] <takyon_> hmm
[04:27:48] <Deucalion> OK - feel free to shuffle it out to Monday if you think it's a better fit there. I was just putting it live as having looked at the author's additionally provided links, they didn't really add much so as far as I am concerned it is good to go.
[04:28:12] <nick> takyon: what say you
[04:28:39] <Deucalion> Just let me know when it's scheduled for so I can let the author know as it is for a Q&A
[04:34:18] <Deucalion> nick, want me to de-mark it for "Display" and just update comments to say it's good to go, schedule at will?
[04:35:02] <Deucalion> takyon_ ^^
[04:35:03] <nick> if takyon_ would give an opinion we can make a decision now
[04:35:05] <nick> heh

[04:36:58] <takyon_> i meaaaaan
[04:37:00] <Deucalion> problem with auto-complete there if someone is signed with both main and alt nicks... the auto-complete always pulls the higher (away usually) nickname
[04:37:15] <takyon_> tell me how to make chat.soylentnews.org stop doing this
[04:38:15] <Deucalion> you're here now :P Let's discuss le story first and sort out the IRC crud later :D
[04:38:40] <takyon_> so u want me to decide whether to run that hting on monday or saturday?
[04:38:51] <takyon_> the monday argument makes sense
[04:40:14] <nick> do we have consensus for monday then?
[04:41:05] <Deucalion> OK - that's 2-1. Editorial 2 - 1 Deujiggly (in my defence I was playing away, uphill, against the wind, both ways, and I had injuries) :D I'll knock it back to Monday 09:00 UTC... aye / nay?
[04:41:23] <takyon_> sounds good
[04:41:28] <nick> i'd say keep it at 12:00
[04:41:30] <Deucalion> kk, on it
[04:42:03] <nick> gives both sides of the Atlantic time to see it before it gets too far down the page or too late in the day
[04:43:38] <Deucalion> kk - 2016-03-14 12:00:00 (UTC) - tis done. If someone who actually ventures into the Ed screens more than once every few months could cast a quick eye over I would be obliged.
[04:44:17] <nick> i'm out now, need to sleep
[04:44:21] * nick hat tip
[04:44:36] <Deucalion> Why does the title show with *** after it in the list of stories?
[04:44:45] <nick> has a note attached
[04:44:51] <Deucalion> aight
[04:44:53] <takyon_> k
[04:44:59] <Deucalion> sleep well
[04:45:10] <Deucalion> I'll let the auth know
[04:45:14] <nick> g'night good peoples

[20:51:13] <takyon> i have a couple stories i will submit
[20:51:27] <takyon> Walt Whitman letter and something about adult coloring books
[20:51:32] <takyon> I put the AlphaGo sub in earlier
[20:51:37] <takyon> HUMANITY DEFEATED
[20:52:25] <takyon> yeah Update Checker just popped up and told me about the download
[20:52:35] <takyon> I'm kind of shocked an IRC client would ever need an update

[21:23:51] <takyon> time for walt
[21:44:50] <takyon> what's going with that DST article cmn32480
[21:45:02] <cmn32480> posting it
[21:45:07] <cmn32480> had to make an edit.
[21:45:30] <cmn32480> I'm out of it
[21:45:43] <takyon> k. looks like it needs more fixing 2 me
[21:45:45] <cmn32480> swapped some shit around to put it out in about 30 minutes
[21:45:56] <takyon> i've got a couple more subs coming out soon
[21:46:12] <takyon> one that I'm surprised nobody picked up on....
[21:46:15] <cmn32480> added in the links to the studies that weren't in the opriginal,
[21:46:22] <takyon> this: http://www.theregister.co.uk
[21:46:22] <Sprinkles> ^ 03Reprogrammble routers axed by TP-Link as FCC bans custom firmware • The Register
[21:47:55] <cmn32480> wow
[21:48:07] <cmn32480> un-real how stupid we ahve all become
[21:48:26] <takyon> the first time around when we had this discussion, I think the potential harm was dismissed as theoretical. With this, no longer
[21:49:04] <takyon> also subbed a sub about a Walt Whitman letter written on behalf of an illiterate Civil War soldier. Great weekend fluff
[21:49:11] <cmn32480> there is gonna be a run on old pre-ban hardware
[21:49:25] <takyon> ebay.com/banned_by_fcc
[21:50:57] <cmn32480> that or people will be getting them shipped in from other countries

[22:22:37] <takyon> man sometimes I just don't feel like writing that opening line
[22:22:39] <takyon> still do
[22:22:44] <takyon> hi nick
[22:23:08] <nick> hey takyon
[22:23:14] <nick> 'ow goes?
[22:23:18] <takyon> pretty good
[22:23:21] <takyon> just subbed this
[22:23:31] <takyon> https://soylentnews.org
[22:23:32] <Sprinkles> ^ 03SN Submission by takyon: TP-LINK Won't Sell Reprogrammable Routers in U.S., Blames FCC Firmware Rules
[22:25:21] <nick> for being from a chinese manufacturer, tp-link actually makes decent stuff
[22:25:45] <takyon> yeah I think one of my last routers I bought was from them
[22:25:55] <takyon> I'm looking to buy a cheap repeater right now in fact
[22:26:02] <takyon> ~$15-20
[22:26:11] <nick> tp-link is the way i would go
[22:26:13] <takyon> i think I got a linksys one last time, not sure
[22:26:32] <nick> i've had routers, switches, AP's and even their 3G USB Modems
[22:26:40] <nick> all have been good
[22:26:50] <takyon> well
[22:26:58] <nick> and the price point is as good as i've seen
[22:26:59] <takyon> better buy em up quick before they're BANNED
[22:27:07] <takyon> BANNED BY FCC
[22:27:43] <nick> yeah, hoping this 'in the US' think doesn't start crossing over into EU also
[22:28:02] <nick> is not like anyone cares what happens to consumer hardware in the EU
[22:29:25] <takyon> read the end of the reg article
[22:29:31] <takyon> looks like other markets are probably safe for now
[22:33:19] <nick> it's about as vague of a statement i'd expect
[22:34:14] <nick> will be something i'll keep an eye on though
