[01:28:23] <takyon_> i doubt I can finish the section about the 2016 Election/Ballot initiatives within the next say, 30 minutes
[01:28:36] <takyon_> so let me finish up some more details and I will give you a shout
[01:38:05] <cmn32480> take yout time... as long as you are done by 11pm I can lookit over
[01:43:01] <takyon_> cool
[01:56:29] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[01:58:11] <cmn32480> bytram !!
[01:58:17] <Bytram> cmn32480: !!
[01:58:25] <cmn32480> how goes good sir?
[01:58:31] <cmn32480> feeling any better?
[01:58:56] * Bytram is saddened to report his phone took a tumble and seems to be on 'life support' -- need to powercycle to get online
[01:59:07] * Bytram is feeling better, but still not entirely well
[01:59:56] <Bytram> cmn32480++ moved into 3rd place on HoF!
[01:59:56] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 47
[02:00:19] <cmn32480> <gasp>
[02:00:34] <cmn32480> bytram may have to join the rest of us in the 21st century...
[02:00:48] <Bytram> kicking and dragging, no doubt.
[02:00:55] <Bytram> hmmm
[02:01:01] * Bytram goes to check something
[02:01:12] <cmn32480> well... tethering programs exist for current phones too
[02:01:40] <cmn32480> and your speed will be in M not k
[02:02:28] * Bytram reports phone is about one month shy of six years old -- am wondering if I got my money's worth. ;)
[02:02:51] <cmn32480> depends.. did you pay full retail?
[02:03:13] <Bytram> oh, I already measure my speed in M; very small fractions thereof, perhaps... =)
[02:03:30] * cmn32480 runs setup to upgrade the backup software...
[02:03:35] <Bytram> was part of a 2-year service signup
[02:03:56] <Bytram> cmn32480: s/up/down/g
[02:03:58] <exec> <Bytram> <cmn32480> runs setdown to downgrade the backdown software...
[02:04:02] <cmn32480> so you've paid for the phone 3 times over then
[02:04:34] <Bytram> I don't know, I 'spose so.
[02:04:52] <cmn32480> the new plans all have the phone cost as a separate line item
[02:04:59] <cmn32480> so it goes away after that gets paid for
[02:05:04] <Bytram> horns of a dilemma ...
[02:05:05] <takyon_> ok guys
[02:05:14] <takyon_> wait a couple of minutes and then load up the 4/20 article
[02:05:25] <takyon_> the couple of minutes is so that the caching doesn't kick in
[02:05:28] <cmn32480> gettin' the munchies, are ya?
[02:05:28] <Bytram> get an android and tell the Goog all about my surfing interests, contacts, etc.
[02:05:36] <takyon_> since i saved literally 30 seconds ago
[02:05:53] <cmn32480> one of us one of us
[02:06:08] <cmn32480> but yo could also get a facebook account!
[02:06:16] * cmn32480 ducks
[02:06:34] <Bytram> get an apple and be limited to their walled garden (do. not. want. the apple way seems to be great if you want to do what they think you want to do; a royal pain if you want to do anything otherwise)
[02:07:24] <cmn32480> or a blackberry...
[02:07:26] <Bytram> or, what else is there? Maybe get a phone and install cyanogenmod on it?
[02:07:32] <cmn32480> and have RCMP reading your mail
[02:07:42] <Bytram> have one -- that's why it's lasted 6 whole years.
[02:07:50] <takyon_> I haven't finished the sections about the cannabis stances of the presidential candidates and the 2016 ballot initiatives yet, but there shouldn't be anything too controversial or unfactual in there when I do write it. Also I'd like one of you to change the editor to your name, assunming you "endorse" the contents of the article
[02:08:15] <cmn32480> doable
[02:08:16] <Bytram> that is one *tough* phone... has survived *numerous* drops with no ill effect
[02:08:59] <Bytram> takyon_: if I may ask... what is the big deal about '4/20' ?? why not 4/21 or 5/20 or ... ??
[02:09:18] <takyon_> it's in the first sentence
[02:09:24] <takyon_> the link to 4/20 on wikipedia
[02:09:24] <Bytram> might be good to include something about the dae in the story
[02:09:30] <Bytram> ah... nvm
[02:09:42] * Bytram hasn't looked at it but briefly when you first started
[02:09:45] <takyon_> Bytram: I included a blurb from Wikipedia in last year's article
[02:09:53] <takyon_> this time I'm just including the link
[02:09:54] <Bytram> good.
[02:11:16] <Bytram> it's not something of any interest to me, so I'm not a good reference point on that.
[02:12:00] <cmn32480> bytram - you wann take first stab at it? then i will come behind?
[02:12:58] <takyon_> sounds hot
[02:13:37] <cmn32480> lol
[02:13:40] <Bytram> hard to say this without being objectionable, but for personal reasons, let's just leave it at this: I'd rather not participate in [the editing of] that story.
[02:14:57] <cmn32480> 10-4
[02:15:34] <Bytram> I appreciate your understanding. thanks!
[02:16:11] -!- takyon_ has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
[02:17:54] <Bytram> cmn32480: how have YOU been? Have any luck with the mulch?
[02:18:37] <cmn32480> nope...s till have a 4ftx10ft (diameter) piule in the drive
[02:18:50] <Bytram> nod nod

[02:19:03] -!- mode/#editorial [+v takyon_] by Hermes
[02:19:30] <Bytram> that is one heck of a lot of mulch!
[02:19:36] <takyon_> I missed whatever you might have said
[02:19:39] <takyon_> since my browser crashed
[02:20:32] <Bytram> what I said was: "hard to say this without being objectionable, but for personal reasons, let's just leave it at this: I'd rather not participate in [the editing of] that story."
[02:20:41] <takyon_> hahahahahahhahahah
[02:21:15] <takyon_> well you can edit it without becoming the editor, unless you don't want to
[02:21:34] <cmn32480> name is still tagged to it in the update box
[02:21:36] <cmn32480> he's fine
[02:21:39] <takyon_> courage related courage will be delegated to cmn32420
[02:21:49] <cmn32480> he doesn't have to touch it if he don't want to
[02:21:49] <Bytram> for personal reasons, i do not want to be a party to the story.
[02:21:59] <takyon_> that's fine
[02:22:05] <Bytram> thanks.
[02:23:23] <Bytram> so, anyway, I am checking in mostly to report that I may have some connectivity issues for the near future, but also to see how the story queue was doing (and it looks like you are in good shape)...
[02:23:38] <Bytram> I'm absolutely exhausted, and am going to call it a night.
[02:23:45] <cmn32480> takyon adn I been keeping her as full as we can
[02:23:56] <cmn32480> get some rest
[02:23:58] <cmn32480> you been sick
[02:24:11] <takyon_> good night bytram
[02:24:20] <Bytram> yeah, some days I'm sicker than others =)
[02:24:41] <Bytram> thanks guys! I appreciate the support! and...
[02:26:02] <Bytram> I'm also trying to find the elusive balance between life, this site, and everything
[02:26:14] <cmn32480> get in line!
[02:26:20] <cmn32480> we are all striving for that
[02:26:21] <Bytram> I suppose that would be something like '42', eh?
[02:26:38] <cmn32480> I think all the eds are shooting for that
[02:26:40] <Bytram> well, I learned a lesson from JR, and came close here a couple times.
[02:26:54] <cmn32480> yup yup
[02:27:01] <cmn32480> me too
[02:27:17] <cmn32480> ~gngiht bytram
[02:27:25] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[02:27:27] * exec half-heartedly fires a rusty trombone of broiled hog anus at bytram
[02:27:28] <cmn32480> stupid fingers
[02:27:43] <Bytram> I think I may have overdid it here for a couple days, and trying to do my taxes, and having the printer run out of ink, and I had no more ink, but I had a new printer, so I installed that and someone decided that it was a good idea to start vacuuming at 0700 and...
[02:27:45] <cmn32480> wow... that almost makes sense!
[02:27:52] <Bytram> yeah, i'm just a wee bit tired.
[02:28:06] <cmn32480> I emant what exec said
[02:28:13] <cmn32480> what you said is compeltely coherent
[02:28:36] <Bytram> if it made *any* sense, but it was probably because of latent ability and not because of any brain juice that is currently available for feeding my neurons
[02:28:45] <cmn32480> go to bed
[02:28:50] <cmn32480> you sound like you need it
[02:29:02] <Bytram> oh! *that*... I've grown used to kinda ignoring them.
[02:29:05] <Bytram> for the reason given
[02:29:18] <Bytram> also, they tend to be less than, ummm, encouraging.
[02:29:34] <cmn32480> yeah... exec needs a clean out of that file
[02:29:38] <Bytram> exec needs more flowers, rainbows, and unicorns
[02:29:57] <cmn32480> ~gday >beverage flowers
[02:29:59] <exec> added to beverages
[02:29:59] <Bytram> lessee... nightshade
[02:30:06] <cmn32480> ~gday >beverage rainbow
[02:30:07] <exec> added to beverages
[02:30:16] <cmn32480> ~gday >beverage unicorns
[02:30:18] <exec> added to beverages
[02:30:19] <Bytram> how ya gonna drink a rainbow?
[02:30:35] <Bytram> no, I do NOT want to know how you drink a unicorn!
[02:30:37] <takyon_> carefully
[02:30:43] <cmn32480> from a gold pot, silly
[02:30:43] <takyon_> I thought you were anti-drug
[02:31:04] <Bytram> I am not pro drug. there is a difference
[02:31:27] <Bytram> and I am absolutely NOT in the mood to get into a discussion on that at this time of night.
[02:31:35] <cmn32480> sign off
[02:31:36] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[02:31:39] <cmn32480> get some rest
[02:31:39] <Bytram> ~gnight takyon_
[02:31:46] * exec single-candidly twerks a petabyte of fat chick for takyon_
[02:31:48] <takyon_> night
[02:31:53] <takyon_> whoa
[02:32:13] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[02:32:15] * exec sneakily farts a massive fart a 40 of superballs at cmn32480
[02:32:26] <Bytram> sense no makes
[02:32:27] <cmn32480> SWEET!
[02:32:33] <Bytram> ~gnight exec
[02:32:35] * exec ceremoniously rubs yo mama of blerg on exec
[02:32:45] <cmn32480> 40 high bounce balls??? that'll keep the kids occupied for hours!
[02:32:46] <Bytram> does it go round in circles?
[02:33:03] <cmn32480> nope
[02:33:07] <Bytram> oooh! superballs! those were FUN!
[02:33:10] <cmn32480> randomely chooses from 3 different lists
[02:33:28] <Bytram> that would be: beverages, beverages, and beverages?
[02:33:29] <cmn32480> but we were NOT allowed to play with them in the housee
[02:33:36] <cmn32480> adjective
[02:33:38] <cmn32480> adverb
[02:33:40] <cmn32480> beverage
[02:33:40] <Bytram> yeah, we got the same rule
[02:34:04] <takyon_> I wonder how high a superball would bounce on the Moon
[02:34:16] <cmn32480> 8 times as high as on earth
[02:34:23] <takyon_> ok then
[02:34:31] <cmn32480> possibly enough to escape gravity
[02:34:36] <Bytram> hey, did you hear what the French farmer said to the veterinarian who restored his female horse's sight?
[02:34:41] <Bytram> mare see!
[02:34:52] <cmn32480> <groan>
[02:34:57] <Bytram> and I'll let myself out.
[02:34:59] <takyon_> <internal groan>
[02:35:01] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[02:35:02] <Bytram> g'night!
[02:35:03] * exec fanatically generates a small script that substitutes a goblet of toecheese for bytram
[02:35:09] <takyon_> ~gnight bytram
[02:35:11] * exec inadequately rubs a gift of No Mas! on bytram
[02:35:21] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[02:35:56] <takyon_> so cmn
[02:35:58] <Bytram|away> oh, almost forgot! cmn32480 I think you are now #2 on the F@H team member list! congrats!
[02:36:05] <cmn32480> thx
[02:36:09] <cmn32480> GET TO BED
[02:36:13] <takyon_> do you have a home box running that?
[02:36:18] <cmn32480> damnit.. worse than my 7 year old
[02:36:25] <cmn32480> yes
[02:36:34] <takyon_> neato
[02:36:34] <Bytram|away> 'cause I have a later bed time! Nyaaaah!
[02:36:39] <cmn32480> the new rig I jsut bought the parts for has a GTX970 in it
[02:36:57] <cmn32480> that is by far the lions share of the processing power
[02:37:05] <takyon_> my computer is so slow it's just crashed on too many Chrome tabs. and that's all it is - a Chromebook!
[02:38:05] <cmn32480> https://secure.newegg.com
[02:38:08] <exec> └─ 13Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg
[02:38:10] <cmn32480> that shoudl be the parts
[02:38:35] <takyon_> were you the one who upgraded their graphics card in recent weeks?
[02:39:01] <cmn32480> yeah
[02:39:14] <cmn32480> 2, 3 weeks ago?
[02:39:21] <takyon_> well I have to admit that I am a little disappointed that you didn't wait for NVIDIA Pascal or AMD Polaris
[02:39:37] <takyon_> they are going to be sensational
[02:39:43] <cmn32480> $$$
[02:39:48] <cmn32480> they likely will bee
[02:39:57] <cmn32480> but buying the latest tech is too expensive
[02:40:07] <takyon_> new graphics cards pop into the price points of older ones, minus the savings you get from sales
[02:40:11] <cmn32480> the GTX970 is already down in proce becasue those have been announced
[02:40:20] <takyon_> but you tack on 6 months and those will be on sale too
[02:40:37] <cmn32480> and 6months after that somethign new comes out
[02:40:45] <cmn32480> at that rate I'll never get a new box
[02:41:03] <takyon_> I wouldn't be shocked if a 1060 equivalent (a model # I;m making up just now) outperformed a 970
[02:41:08] <takyon_> or whatveer
[02:41:12] <takyon_> tier disruption
[02:41:18] <takyon_> but enough about all that
[02:41:26] <takyon_> it's story time
[02:41:35] <cmn32480> the only benchmark that matters is that I am happy with the purchase so far
[02:41:42] <takyon_> https://soylentnews.org

[02:41:45] <exec> └─ 13Error
[02:42:14] <takyon_> I rushed some of this and wrote a lot of it today, so I wouldn't be surprised to see some big errors
[02:43:23] <takyon_> not to mention I still have to add what might end up being 3-4 more paragraphs covering the stances of the remaining presidential candidates, the aftermath of colorado/washington, and various ballot initiatives for legalization and decriminalization that will be voted on in November
[02:50:49] <cmn32480> ok
[02:51:03] <cmn32480> couple minor changes to word order... but not bad at all
[02:51:09] <cmn32480> takyon_ ^^
[02:51:32] <takyon_> thanks. I should be able to diff them to see what they are
[02:51:58] <takyon_> how do you feel about the paragraph flow? (the order in which the paragraphs appear)
[02:52:51] <cmn32480> it works
[02:53:13] <cmn32480> the only one that was anythign worth noting was the over-prescription of painkillers
[02:53:32] <cmn32480> I changed it to over use of prescription painkillers
[02:53:43] <takyon_> hmmmmm
[02:53:54] <takyon_> I mean that doctors are over prescribing them
[02:54:00] <takyon_> not that the patients are over using them
[02:54:06] <takyon_> (probably)
[02:54:11] <cmn32480> perhaps it shoulc be "over-prescribing of opiod painkillers"
[02:54:58] <takyon_> yeah that sound p good
[02:55:19] <takyon_> there are so many ways to say the same thing (sweat emoji)
[02:55:31] <cmn32480> heh
[02:57:14] <cmn32480> time for me to hit the sack too
[02:57:19] <cmn32480> ~gnight takyon_
[02:57:19] <takyon_> ok

[02:58:06] * takyon_ deflects
[03:00:23] <takyon_> will you change your name to editor or will I just have to own my post completely
[03:00:29] <takyon_> I don't mind if you don't
[03:00:50] <takyon_> might be better to let me take the anon heat anyway
[03:01:51] <takyon_> according to Diff you only made that one change. hooray
[03:03:16] <takyon_> "the heroin epidemic has been spurned on by the over-prescription of opioid painkillers"
[03:04:16] <takyon_> made that change and a tweak so that DOI checker doesn't go crazy

[11:41:51] <Bytram> waaaaaaaaaaa!
[11:43:24] <Bytram> oh, one thing I forgot to mention in the submission -- how to get my contacts onto the new phone? I've got backups of my BB, from which I can extract phone#, name, etc. and I can munge that into some other format, if needed, e.g. CSV, JSON.
[11:44:01] <cmn32480> I'm sure there are programs for that
[11:44:11] <Bytram> worse come to worst, I can always just print out a copy of my contacts and go on a marathon of typing things in, but I'd obvously like to avoid THAT!
[11:44:38] <Bytram> I'm sure there are, too. but would be nice to hear from others expereinces on that front, too.
[11:45:05] * Bytram woke at 0430 and couldn't get back to sleep -- is gonna be a LONG day.

[11:45:20] <Bytram> nice
[11:45:22] <cmn32480> my Google-Fu is strong
[11:45:42] <Bytram> my hope is to buy a phone, load cyanogenmod on it, and then crank up the privacy permissions.
[11:46:38] <cmn32480> depends what you buy
[11:46:46] <Bytram> the book 1984 cautioned about the power of the government in gathering info on the people; I think it failed to see the risks of large corporations doing the same.
[11:46:51] <Bytram> zactly
[11:47:03] <Bytram> hence my asking for people to make suggestions on what phone to get.
[11:47:33] <Bytram> better to hear form people's *experiences* rather than their *ideas* -- if you know what I mean?
[11:47:34] <takyon_> i am pushing around stories now
[11:47:44] <Bytram> muchos gracias!
[11:48:27] <cmn32480> don't be a bully takyon_
[11:48:38] <cmn32480> what'd those stories ever do to you?
[11:49:31] <takyon_> well
[11:49:42] <takyon_> they wrapped themselves around my magnum opus
[11:49:45] <takyon_> and there we go
[11:49:49] <Bytram> unfortunately, I need to go to work today, and don't have net access while I'm there, so I'm not gonna be able to answer any questions that might arise.
[11:49:54] <takyon_> changed from dev/random to answers
[11:50:24] <Bytram> that is a much better topic -- thanks!
[11:50:27] <cmn32480> 2nding
[11:50:29] <takyon_> I need to eat brb
[11:50:53] <takyon_> i'll take a look and see what we can add to your query before you leave
[11:51:31] <Bytram> any chance to swap time slots between "Suggestions for a New Phone" (17:30) and "Measuring the Heat Capacity of Condensed Light" (14:30)
[11:52:42] <cmn32480> why are we puttiung stuff out at the top and bottom of the hour?
[11:52:46] <Bytram> much appreciate all your support - not much tech know-how in my normal day-to-day stuff - this place is a much-needed oasis!
[11:53:17] <Bytram> i had things at random displacements, I think T rearranged things to be spot-on the [half] hour
[11:54:11] <cmn32480> k
[11:54:29] <Bytram> coffee++ and need to get cleaned up before heading to work; biab
[11:54:29] <Bender> karma - coffee: 49
[11:57:43] <cmn32480> bytram - adjusted
[12:02:50] * Bytram refreshes
[12:03:08] <Bytram> cmn32480++
[12:03:08] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 48
[12:03:23] <Bytram> cmn32480++ should be at least as much as coffee!!
[12:03:23] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 49
[12:03:29] <cmn32480> lol
[12:03:38] <Bytram> coffee+= that's better
[12:03:42] <cmn32480> answers usually get better response the closer to 8am eastern they are
[12:03:43] <Bytram> coffee++ that's better
[12:03:43] <Bender> karma - coffee: 50
[12:04:02] <Bytram> thanks buddy, really appreciate the support!
[12:04:29] <cmn32480> np
[12:04:38] <cmn32480> we'll get you up here kicking and screaming
[12:04:49] <cmn32480> and as for tethering.. there are several programs that do it
[12:04:59] <Bytram> kewel
[12:05:03] <cmn32480> I've been using PDANet for about 7 years
[12:05:14] <cmn32480> mostly when I travel
[12:05:20] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:05:22] * Bytram takes another read-through; just in case
[12:05:28] <cmn32480> but it works over USB, BT or Wifi
[12:06:47] <Bytram> nice
[12:07:17] <cmn32480> it is a paid program.. but it is a one time no maintenance
[12:07:43] <Bytram> I'm okay with that -- if it does the job well, then it is worth paying for. Any idea how much?
[12:08:05] <cmn32480> checking
[12:09:51] <takyon_> i like round numbers cmn32480

[12:10:21] <exec> └─ 13Purchase Agreement
[12:10:33] <cmn32480> bytram - $7.95
[12:10:47] <cmn32480> for alimited time. regular price is $14.95
[12:11:02] * Bytram likes to add some variation -- psychology -- rather than knowing exactly when each story is due to arrive, keeps folks trying with the *possibility* of getting a "reward" -- a new story.
[12:11:06] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:11:54] <cmn32480> but like I said.. I've had it for about 6-7 years... no issues for $15.
[12:12:44] <Bytram> got it. THANKS!
[12:13:19] <cmn32480> I'll dump the links in the comments too... for the general fund of knowledge
[12:13:43] <cmn32480> though keep in mind, cyanogenmod MAY have the fiunctionality in it
[12:17:06] <Bytram> okay, added a couple more things, and split the story into Extended Copy.
[12:17:18] * Bytram hopes he didn't forget anything important
[12:22:43] <takyon_> now ill read it
[12:23:42] <takyon_> I wonder how bad Android really is
[12:23:58] <takyon_> by default it would rely on Google, but a lot of its services can be disabled pretty easily
[12:26:18] <takyon_> you want to know what i do when i want to get privacy conscious
[12:26:58] <takyon_> wrap the phone in a tinfoil sleeve
[12:27:15] <takyon_> kills all signals as far as i can tell
[12:30:26] <takyon_> "SOLID radio section"... selection?
[12:31:30] <Bytram> as I mentioned, my apt seems to have been constructed with plaster walls (that means there's often 'chicken wire' grid of metal wire onto which the plaster is applied) a bit like a Faraday cage.
[12:32:04] <takyon_> I wouldn't worry about future proofing for 1080p
[12:32:11] <Bytram> an earlier phone I'd had would only let me talk with someone if I stood in exactly one place and didn't move -- with the BB, didn't matter where in the apt I was -- came in loud and clear
[12:32:23] <takyon_> having lived the 768p life for a while, I find it to be fairly adequate
[12:33:04] <takyon_> "My main system runs Win 7 Pro but I could also run a live CD with some Linux distro." not sure this has much to do with your choice of phone
[12:33:25] <cmn32480> matters for the tehtering
[12:33:30] <Bytram> I'm not so much interested in having high-res display, as in having UI elements continue to be laid out reasonably well down the line when the new-line phones start regularly having 4K displays.
[12:33:32] <takyon_> was it "section" or "selection" earlier for the radio part?
[12:33:41] <Bytram> section
[12:33:45] <takyon_> k
[12:34:18] <Bytram> might want to splain that means for signal reception for phone/LTE ... not just FM radio
[12:34:27] <Bytram> good question
[12:34:36] <Bytram> I know what I *meant* =)
[12:35:05] <takyon_> ah
[12:35:16] <takyon_> cellular reception... not radio section
[12:37:05] <Bytram> yep
[12:41:02] <takyon_> what are you doing TheMightyBuzzard
[12:41:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> playing with the bot. got submissions fixed but not quit isn't working.
[12:42:42] <takyon_> omg I can't believe there is an MH370 story
[12:44:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, me either.
[12:44:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> what's an MH370?
[12:45:03] <takyon_> some hyped plane crash
[12:45:39] * TheMightyBuzzard shurgs
[12:46:32] <cmn32480> the Malaysian airlines flight from a few years back that dissappeared inot the indian ocean
[12:46:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, that one
[12:47:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> must be a slow news day
[12:48:18] <takyon_> haven't multiple Malaysian flights crashed?
[12:48:34] <takyon_> I can't keep track of it all but I remember multiple Malaysian flights specifically crashing
[12:50:30] <cmn32480> wasn't one shot down over Ukraine?
[12:50:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> god damnit, i just had it fixed and it's broken again
[12:51:03] <takyon_> yes
[12:51:09] <cmn32480> then obviously you didn't fix it
[12:51:25] * TheMightyBuzzard sighs
[12:51:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, it worked then i broke it again apparently
[12:58:16] <takyon_> there is an advantage to not using Mr Plow
[12:58:32] <takyon_> the other one doesn't add your name so nobody has to know you were being lazy
[13:04:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon_, ya, some folks wanna be lazy AND get credit though.
