[02:09:37] <Bytram> takyon_: that would be Deucalion -- ISTR he gathered all the comments together but am unsure what came together after that.
[02:11:11] <takyon_> urgh
[02:11:16] <takyon_> well i guess it's not time sensitive
[02:11:24] <takyon_> don't want to keep our resident biologist waiting too long though

[03:14:26] <Bytram> LOL
[03:14:35] <takyon_> <p>Investigating potential medical uses is needlessly difficult and expensive when a drug is listed as a controlled substance. [...] However, research into controlled substances is slowly being conducted after decades of neglect. <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Nutt">David Nutt</a>, the neuro</p>
[03:14:37] <exec> └─ 13Bad title - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
[03:14:49] <Bytram> saw it in a NewsDaily story in the #rss-bot channel feed
[03:15:29] <Bytram> hmm, on second thoughtI think it was ScienceDaily
[03:16:29] <takyon_> i know where it is
[03:16:37] <takyon_> if you give me 15 minutes i'll save my copy and let you check it out
[03:16:48] <Bytram> and with that, i've completed 2nding of the stories in the queue

[03:17:24] <Bytram> but much obliged!
[03:24:25] <takyon_> still writing
[03:24:40] <Bytram> apprecaite the update
[03:24:44] * Bytram just read: http://gizmodo.com

[03:27:53] <exec> └─ 13Error
[03:28:04] <Bytram> cmn32480: just had an idea... imagine if exec could cooperate with Arthur T Knackerbracket(sp?). I'm thinking either of taking Arthur's scraping ability to extract all the story text at a URL and using exec to submit as a story. Or, have Arthur leverage exec's code to auto submit whatever he comes up with.
[03:28:10] <Bytram> ready for posting?
[03:28:36] <takyon_> hell no it's not ready for posting
[03:28:41] <takyon_> the thing I'm creating is truly epic in scale
[03:28:49] <Bytram> k
[03:28:50] <takyon_> I just saved what I was working on so you could glance at it
[03:29:27] <takyon_> even the parts that look like they're done will be embiggened over the next 9 days
[03:29:48] <Bytram> you mean the 4/20 story?
[03:29:55] <takyon_> yea
[03:30:00] <takyon_> i linked it just now
[03:30:06] <Bytram> k
[03:30:49] <Bytram> ohhh, now I understand.
[03:30:51] <takyon_> my top concern this time around is getting lazy and using too many Vice.com links
[03:31:01] <takyon_> so I've got a bunch in the notes section for me to peruse, but I'll probably discard most of them later
[03:31:24] <Bytram> I was under hte impression that you were going to submit that LSD-linked story as a separate story... didn't realize you were planning to merge it into that opus!
[03:32:32] <takyon_> time to find a soylentnews story that best represents the tyranny of Theresa May
