[01:32:05] <Bytram> cmn32480: I'm gathering some additional links for the iPhone cracked story
[01:32:19] <Bytram> http://feedproxy.google.com
[01:32:20] <DinduNuffin> ^ 03Feds get data off terrorist's iPhone without Apple's help - CNET ( http://www.cnet.com )
[01:32:33] <cmn32480> I have like 5 already...
[01:32:41] <cmn32480> Wash Post
[01:32:44] <cmn32480> TechCrunch
[01:32:55] <cmn32480> Sydney morning Herald
[01:32:59] <Bytram> cnet, el reg, computerworld, ars, security week
[01:33:03] <cmn32480> and one or two others
[01:33:07] <cmn32480> BBC
[01:33:10] <Bytram> k
[01:33:27] <cmn32480> literally EVERYBODY is carrying this story
[01:33:29] * Bytram tries to remember story he saw which suggested a method by which the phone was cracked
[01:33:39] <cmn32480> throw a dart at the internet adn you can't find a news site that doens't have it up already
[01:33:47] <cmn32480> 'cept us, of course
[01:33:55] <cmn32480> already merged it in
[01:35:31] <Bytram> k
[01:47:57] <cmn32480> Bytram - Please take a swing at that apple story
[01:48:09] <cmn32480> preferably with a clue-by-four
[01:48:33] <Bytram> You won't get a thing if you ain't got that swing
[01:48:39] * Bytram swings on by for a look
[01:49:07] <Bytram> btw, I tried looking at scrollback in #Soylent -- looks like you are building a new rig... for yourself?
[01:49:23] <cmn32480> yes
[01:49:34] <cmn32480> you are brave... reading #soylent scrollback
[01:49:50] <Bytram> looks like someone forgot to close an anchor...
[01:50:08] <cmn32480> ooooo mmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[01:50:30] <Bytram> no worries; i'll fix it and make it better
[01:53:39] <Bytram> seems like there were some attributes in the anchor tag besides just the href...
[01:53:54] <Bytram> makes a mess of things with the code that tries to balance tags
[01:54:37] <Bytram> need to delete: title="stuff"
[01:54:39] <cmn32480> that was the link for the filing
[01:54:45] <Bytram> and: target="_blank"
[01:54:47] <cmn32480> I meant to get back to that
[01:54:54] <Bytram> from within the <a href=""> tags
[01:56:55] <Bytram> no bigee -- is easy to get 'word soup' out of that story!
[01:57:41] <cmn32480> I did. I did ! and it was worse when there were actually 4 stories in the merge
[02:07:15] <Bytram> cmn32480: quite the accomplishment!
[02:07:35] <Bytram> I just noticed that the Topic is "Breaking News" -- want me to change?
[02:07:54] <Bytram> (I think there is a bug that somehow, all merged stories become breaking news)
[02:09:12] <cmn32480> certainle
[02:09:24] <Bytram> is now: 'News', 'Software', 'Hardware', and 'Security'
[02:09:39] <Bytram> 4-way merge deserves 4 topics, tight?
[02:09:40] <Bytram> ;)
[02:09:48] <cmn32480> sure
[02:11:47] <Bytram> clue-by-four work completed -- feel free to take another look-see

[04:09:02] * Bytram just pushed out a story for publication at 2016-03-29 @ 12:12pm UTC
[04:09:14] <Bytram> that'll last us until morning.
[04:09:21] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[04:09:30] <Bytram|away> bedtime - laters, everyone!
[14:32:03] <nick> g'day
[14:35:21] * TheMightyBuzzard waves at nick
[14:35:44] <nick> sup TheMightyBuzzard
[14:36:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> whooping out a theme for april 1
[14:36:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> https://dev.soylentnews.org if you want to check it out
[14:36:25] <DinduNuffin> ^ 03Dev.SN: Dev.SN is secured dead goatse
[14:37:52] <nick> i like it
[14:39:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's like a time machine taking you back to the early 90s
[14:40:05] <nick> back to a time before i was a cynical asshole
[14:40:10] <nick> memories...
[14:41:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> think i'm done with it for today. may add something sparkly that follows the mouse pointer tomorrow.
[14:41:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> nothing for it now but to go fishing a few hours then come back and mow the back yard
[14:42:09] <nick> going to add the purple/green gradient to the other header sections (navigation, section, log in)?
[14:42:51] <nick> it doesn't feel like it's garish enough without that
[14:43:27] <nick> or could alternate some being bright green, others being purple
[14:44:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, may make them flat purple though
[14:45:07] <nick> that would do
[14:46:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, orange i think. it's important that you not have a cohesive and visually appealing look to it as a whole.
[14:46:56] <nick> orange would work
[14:48:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> i thought about using white text on the yellow background but i do still want people to be able to read the site
[14:56:17] <nick> so its going to be the default theme for apr1
[14:57:27] <nick> i've hit a couple 500 errors in the last few minutes
[14:57:53] <nick> make that 3
[15:57:32] <nick> cmn32480, how goes?
[16:15:15] <cmn32480> busy as hell
[16:15:28] <cmn32480> trying to get everythign ready for getting on an airplane tomorrow
[16:24:02] <nick> :(
[16:28:21] <cmn32480> nothign is ready...
[16:28:29] <cmn32480> the configs for their controllers aren't complete...
[16:28:36] <cmn32480> [at least the tickets adn hotels are booked...
[16:28:45] <cmn32480> but SHEESH!
[16:29:33] <nick> nothing is ever ready it seems
[16:36:19] <cmn32480> no kidding
[16:36:40] <cmn32480> if I can get everythign to the point of kinda ready and fitting in my suitcase, I'll be happy :-)
[16:37:01] <cmn32480> I can fake much of the config work on site
[16:37:09] <cmn32480> long as they aren't looking over my should er all day
[16:38:24] <nick> heh, fair play
[16:38:48] <nick> im going to delete the gta-deer story by the way, as it's just shit.
[16:41:59] <cmn32480> agreed
[16:43:10] <nick> actually saw the story+video on the bbc site the other day, it was even more shit than i anticipated
[16:43:18] <cmn32480> lol
[16:45:09] <nick> big fan of gta series, but that's barely a story for a gaming blog in my opinion
[16:45:26] <cmn32480> I haven't played GTA in a lot of years
[16:45:32] <nick> 'person mods game and adds an invincible ai character' is not a story.
[16:46:17] <nick> i didn't really play much of 5, but i've played through all of the other main games
[16:47:16] <nick> Vice City is probably my favourite one
[16:48:39] <cmn32480> I haven't played since before Vice City.. GTA 1 or 2
[16:48:50] <cmn32480> it was never a game that really did it for em
[16:49:12] <nick> the london expansion is the only one ive never owned, which is weird i guess.
[16:49:34] * chromas suggests the Saints Row series for a more arcade-style GTA
[16:50:11] <nick> open world with vehicles is always something i'll be into, the possibility for explosions and violence is a bonus.
[16:50:16] <nick> SR2 is a good choice
[16:50:32] * cmn32480 will dig on the web to zee if he can find a completly legal copy....
[16:50:38] <cmn32480> after I get my new rig
[16:50:41] <cmn32480> https://secure.newegg.com
[16:50:42] <chromas> they're on steam
[16:51:33] <nick> i can't support that, an nvidia card.
[16:51:33] <cmn32480> must be a hot game...
[16:51:48] <cmn32480> porque?
[16:52:48] <nick> just being a fanboi
[16:53:09] <cmn32480> aha
[16:53:17] <nick> and especially when you already have an amd cpu on your list
[16:53:33] <cmn32480> it was a matter of bang for Dollar
[16:54:36] <cmn32480> And I personally like NVidia...
[16:54:59] <cmn32480> but prefer AMD over intel for my CPU's
[16:55:31] <nick> i don't have anything against nvidia, it's just a habit that hasn't done me any harm so far lol
[16:55:43] <nick> and i figure amd needs all the customers they can get lol
[16:56:02] <cmn32480> no argument there
[16:56:08] <nick> GTX 960 seems like a good card though, bias aside
[16:56:44] <cmn32480> I would have preferrred the 980.... but my wallet went into convulsions when it saw the price
[16:56:55] <nick> i've had my R9 270 for like a year and have barely used it :(
[16:58:53] <nick> also quite the PSU in your list
[16:58:57] <cmn32480> my wife wasn't real happy when I told her we needed a new computer
[16:59:10] <cmn32480> the PSU is necessary, unfortunately
[16:59:53] <cmn32480> the GPU is 400W, the CPU is 125W and if I add another GPU down the road a piece for SLI.....
[17:00:20] <cmn32480> add in hard disks, and all the rest... and that power budget isn't so outlandish
[17:00:36] <cmn32480> without a second GPU, I'm around 750W
[17:00:58] <cmn32480> but I love taht it is all modular now in the power supplies
[17:01:37] <cmn32480> break an SATA power connector? just buy a cable...
[17:01:48] <chromas> Where's the case? And do you have enough case fans?
[17:02:00] <cmn32480> instead of "*%$*&%^((&%^( Now I need to find the adapters for the Molex"
[17:02:19] <cmn32480> current case has 7x 80mm I believe
[17:02:46] <cmn32480> 2 in front of the HD, two in the side, 2 on the back, and one out the top
[17:02:53] <cmn32480> plus the power supply
[17:03:26] <cmn32480> the side fans will blow direct on the CPU, or very close to it, if my measurments are correct
[17:04:22] <chromas> Time to bust out the cardboard and duct tape to build some fancy air ducts :D
[17:04:36] <cmn32480> duh!
[17:04:49] <cmn32480> and all my fans are filtered
[17:05:10] <cmn32480> the inbound ones, are... the outboud obviously are not
[17:08:13] <nick> filters are good, cleaning them is also helpful
[17:09:48] <cmn32480> ahem... yes I should try that some time
[17:51:33] <takyon> yall give me a heart attack when you let typos like "Combustable" into the headlines
[17:51:48] <takyon> fixed
[17:52:03] <cmn32480> glad we can help- to assess your cardiac help
[17:52:41] <takyon> if i am around later I will grab an alternate video for the house of reps story
[17:57:09] <takyon> later
[18:19:10] <nick> apologies for not catching that
