[03:46:01] * cmn32480 can't fight excel anymore
[03:46:06] <cmn32480> my eyes are crossing
[03:46:13] <cmn32480> ~gnight #editorial
[03:46:15] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:46:15] * exec literally ejaculates a tube of NCommander at #editorial
[03:46:20] <Bytram> take a breather
[03:46:33] <cmn32480> examination of the inside of my eyelids is in order
[03:46:37] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[03:46:39] * exec illegitimately fires a pair of used panties full of manpages at bytram
[03:46:40] <Bytram> too bad excel does not have a real debugger to single step through what it is doing
[03:46:46] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:46:49] * exec ceremoniously postulates an i/o stream of HP towards cmn32480
[03:46:51] <cmn32480> not the macro that is the problem
[03:46:58] <cmn32480> the data is shit
[03:47:13] <Bytram> oooh. inconsistencies?
[03:47:19] <cmn32480> some sets are 3
[03:47:22] <cmn32480> some sets are 4
[03:47:24] * Bytram eats that stuff for breakfast!
[03:47:24] <cmn32480> some sets are 5
[03:47:42] <cmn32480> need to have excel transpose the pieces of the column into rows
[03:47:47] <Bytram> ok, do you have defaults for the missing parts?
[03:47:50] <cmn32480> so that the labels print properly
[03:47:56] <cmn32480> no
[03:48:05] <Bytram> just leave 'em blank?
[03:48:07] <cmn32480> it is the rack layout from a customer
[03:48:15] <Bytram> hrmmm, okay.
[03:48:25] <cmn32480> problem is that they AREN"T blank in the column
[03:48:36] <cmn32480> I'll fuck with it more tomorrow
[03:48:40] <cmn32480> I'm done
[03:49:20] <cmn32480> night
[03:49:32] <Bytram> idea: export to a .csv file, use something like AWK or perl or python to manipulate the data / fill in the blanks / overwrite / whatever, and then export it back out as CSV
[03:49:57] <Bytram> idea: export to a .csv file, use something like AWK or perl or python to manipulate the data / fill in the blanks / overwrite / whatever, and then write it out as CSV for re-import to excel

[12:28:05] <nick> i jumped my subs up the queue because none of the existing ones inspired me
[13:49:14] -!- exec [exec!~exec@23.24.kp.ip] has joined #editorial
[17:03:34] <nick> stories in queue that i'd suggest are rejected: soylent delegates, dick smith, firehose, archive.org
[17:03:50] <nick> and the windows update rant
[17:04:53] <cmn32480> yes
[17:25:58] <nick> "A number of people have been found dead across multiple crime scenes in Ohio."
[17:26:08] <nick> http://www.bbc.co.uk
[17:26:10] <exec> └─ 13'Multiple people found dead' at home in Ohio - BBC News
[17:26:34] <nick> http://www.foxnews.com
[17:26:36] <exec> └─ 13At least 7 people, mostly children, reportedly shot to death in Ohio | Fox News
[17:33:27] <nick> i find it interesting that Fox News' US home page lists terrorism as the second news category after crime
[17:34:29] <nick> i dont think i've seen on any other 'news' site have it as a separate category, certainly not as visible if they have them beyond a tag
