[02:00:30] <Bytram> I just found an incorrect 'fortune' posted to our site: "Why don't you fix your little problem... and light this candle? -- Alan Shepherd, the first man into space, Gemini program"
[02:01:18] <Bytram> Alan Shepard (his name was misspelled) was the first AMERICAN, but actually the second PERSON to fly into space.

[11:44:05] <Bytram> CoolHand: !!
[11:44:06] <Bytram> g'morning!
[11:44:14] <CoolHand> good morning to YOU sir!
[11:44:28] <CoolHand> I have a question for you on the CEO/gene therapy article
[11:44:45] * Bytram has been too busy for too long; had to take a bit of a breather here for a bit.
[11:44:47] <CoolHand> I can't get this link to work through my ssh tunnel or through our corp network... http://bioviva-science.com

[11:44:53] <Bytram> hold on
[11:44:59] <CoolHand> ok.. holding
[11:45:00] <CoolHand> :)
[11:45:24] <Bytram> well, first off, it appears that exec can access it. =)
[11:45:49] <CoolHand> (yeah.. probably good then.. I just wanted to make sure someone could :) I have these issues occasionally here at work)
[11:46:09] <Bytram> just in case, I just tried it with Lynx on windows and it came up okay, too.
[11:46:18] <CoolHand> cool..
[11:46:57] <CoolHand> thx :)
[11:47:04] <Bytram> it *would* be a nice feature, for us eds, to be able to paste a link into a field, click on a button, and get the text-only version of a page
[11:47:17] <Bytram> would lose out on Javascript-plagued sites and
[11:47:29] <Bytram> would also miss out on links, but... still an idea
[11:47:34] <CoolHand> yep
[11:47:48] * Bytram needs to make more coffee and start to get ready for work.
[11:48:03] <Bytram> really appreciate your stepping up on the site editing
[11:48:25] * Bytram is coming to better appreciate how JR got 'burned out' a while back
[11:49:25] <CoolHand> I hear ya.. I've slowed down recently due to some stuff, but trying to get back going more again.. sometimes when I've logged on ready to go, the queue has been full for the next day, so I've not done much more than 2nd.. but I'm trying.. (then my wife had me without internet access all this past w/e)
[11:50:04] <Bytram> hmmm, take away her cell phone for a weekend?
[11:50:05] <Bytram> every bit helps!

[11:51:07] <cmn32480> sorry 'bout last night... I was in bed at 8:30
[11:51:14] <Bytram> cmn32480: GOOD!!
[11:51:27] <cmn32480> after being up at 2:30am... it was a necessary evil
[11:51:40] <cmn32480> I'll try to get back on the hrose today Dad, I swear
[11:51:45] <Bytram> ISTR there was someone interested in helping out with editing duties... has that panned out?
[11:52:00] <cmn32480> not yet.. we keep missing each other
[11:52:11] * Bytram is still half-asleep and cannot even remember who that was
[11:52:13] <Bytram> nodnod
[11:52:20] <Bytram> ok; afk biaw
[11:53:34] <CoolHand> how's it going cmn32480 ?
[11:54:03] <cmn32480> been busy
[11:54:09] <cmn32480> kids... wife... job
[11:54:16] <cmn32480> the usual
[11:54:16] <CoolHand> hear ya... same
[11:54:59] <cmn32480> but I haven't been on an airplane in almost a month
[11:55:39] <CoolHand> yay.. that's good :)
[11:55:54] <CoolHand> been waiting for you to swing back through Indy to have another beer though.. :)
[11:55:56] <cmn32480> I think so
[11:56:01] <cmn32480> trying
[11:56:14] <cmn32480> I can only go where the PO's are
[11:56:24] <cmn32480> I do have to get my passport...
[11:56:25] <CoolHand> true..
[11:56:39] <CoolHand> get to go somewhere cool?
[11:56:40] <cmn32480> they gonna send me to Canadia later this year, eh/
[11:56:59] <cmn32480> long as it ain't winter, it ought to be relatively warm...
[11:57:11] <cmn32480> but the guys around here do that alot.
[11:57:35] <cmn32480> they send me south (Texas) in the middle of August, and North (South Dakota) in the winter
[11:57:46] <CoolHand> we're going to Canadia around end of July... (if we get all our passports and stuff worked out) - wife, kid, and me
[11:57:55] <cmn32480> NICE: -)
[11:58:18] <CoolHand> my wife used to south in summer north in winter, but I've finally gotten sense into her head
[11:58:21] <CoolHand> :)
[11:58:33] <cmn32480> yeah... sales reps here still don't get it
[11:58:53] <CoolHand> (unless we want to snow ski or something where there is an actual reason to North in winter)
[11:59:08] <cmn32480> welll.. yess.. that would be hard in the south
[12:00:43] <cmn32480> how do I already have 3 voicemails today?
[12:01:04] <CoolHand> they like you... they really really like you...

[17:18:46] <cmn32480> SoyGuest65319!!
[17:18:52] <SoyGuest65319> cmn!!
[17:19:07] <SoyGuest65319> how's things?
[17:19:08] <cmn32480> the prodigal son returns (again)!
[17:19:16] <cmn32480> busy, as per usual
[17:19:22] <cmn32480> nothign really fun to report
[17:19:37] <SoyGuest65319> can't remember any passwords - either for this or the znc bouncer.... Nothing changes :)
[17:19:42] <cmn32480> but a good friend showed up randomly on IRC today after a long absence... so the day is looking up
[17:19:55] <SoyGuest65319> likewise - good to be back
[17:20:08] <cmn32480> how are you and S doing?
[17:20:48] <SoyGuest65319> both making a slow recovery, but we have had to scale back on quite a few things. Only so many hours in the day etc
[17:21:02] <SoyGuest65319> how's J and the kids?
[17:21:20] <cmn32480> glad to hear things are improving. :-)
[17:21:51] <cmn32480> J and the kids are good. Got to take the oldest on a camping trip to the USS New Jersey a few weeks ago, which I very much enjoyed

[17:24:42] <cmn32480> we try to keep busy... but the damn story queue keeps emptying itself
[17:24:47] <cmn32480> I think it has a hole.

[17:28:46] <janrinok> so, still working at the same place?
[17:28:48] <cmn32480> keepass might be your firend
[17:28:51] <cmn32480> yup
[17:28:54] <cmn32480> that hasn't changed
[17:29:01] <cmn32480> been herre 7 years as of 2 weeks ago
[17:29:15] <cmn32480> you still workgin at the same place?
[17:29:15] <janrinok> must be part of the furniture by now
[17:29:30] <janrinok> yep - happily retired and doing sod all
[17:29:44] <cmn32480> my boss told me to hang on 'till my 10th anniversary.. they'd give me a picture of a gold watch
[17:30:01] <cmn32480> all that gardening must be getting to you
[17:30:02] <janrinok> so you gave him a picture of yourself working?
[17:30:15] <cmn32480> for my 10th anniversary I will do exactly that!
[17:30:34] <janrinok> it's good to have a sane conversation at last
[17:30:59] <cmn32480> where?
[17:31:09] <cmn32480> what is this sane conversation that you are referring to?
[17:31:16] <cmn32480> I haven't had one in years....
[17:31:19] <janrinok> compared with here, you just cannot imagine how sane this site is!
[17:31:39] <cmn32480> fair enough
[17:32:51] <janrinok> had an email from TMB the other day - he was asking about the source code for Arthur. He was hoping that I had some magic computer-foo that enabled me to parse html. Unfortunately, I had to explain that ...
[17:33:05] <cmn32480> hehehehehehe
[17:33:10] <janrinok> it was only for a limited number of sites, and was simple template comparisons
[17:33:26] <cmn32480> I told them that I had the code but would not release w/o permission
[17:33:52] <janrinok> thx, but give it to anyone who can use it for what it is worth
[17:33:54] <cmn32480> speaking of which, we were thinking about trying to put it inot exec's submit function
[17:34:22] <janrinok> I've never used that function - not sure if it even existed when I was last active
[17:35:07] <cmn32480> it has been there for quite some time. All it does is use the site API to submit a link to the article and the HTML description form the apge
[17:36:06] <janrinok> I see that your fingers have maintained their superlative level of dyslexia...
[17:37:01] <cmn32480> yes
[17:37:06] <janrinok> fortunately, my reading skills haven't deteriorated too much so I can still understand what you write without batting an eyelid!
[17:37:08] <cmn32480> how would you know it was me if they hadn't?
[17:37:27] <janrinok> security by dyslexia - that's a new one on me
[17:37:44] <cmn32480> sure it is... remember.. security should be catching!
[17:38:25] <janrinok> S is wondering why I have started giggling to myself after all these months...
[17:38:38] <cmn32480> tell her that the insanity has returned
[17:38:59] <cmn32480> and please, give her my best :-)
[17:39:22] <janrinok> will do - and she thanks you for it!
[17:40:13] <cmn32480> Bytram is gonna be sad he missed you
[17:40:42] <janrinok> why, what was he throwing?
[17:40:58] <janrinok> spear, knife, crockery?
[17:41:21] <cmn32480> dust bunnies, I think
[17:41:52] <cmn32480> they didn't fly very well... but left a trail so we could find where they landed.
[17:41:55] <janrinok> I've got plenty of those. Half of my computers were surprised to be switched on again after such a long break
[17:42:44] <cmn32480> rest is good...
[17:42:53] <cmn32480> gotta knock all the rust off them spinning plates
[17:43:17] <janrinok> I'm feeling better for it, and the computers coughed and wheezed much as they always have done
[17:44:15] <cmn32480> so theya re acting just like their owner?
[17:44:26] <janrinok> pretty much ....
[17:46:16] <cmn32480> It warms my heart to know that thigns are getting back to a more normal pace for you
[17:46:43] <cmn32480> are you planning on actually listening to the doctors this time and not trying to do too much?
[17:46:50] <janrinok> lots of work to do in the garden, but no hurry to do that. The weeds seem to grow fine without any help from me.
[17:47:07] <janrinok> I'm doing as I am told - in moderation :)
[17:47:17] <cmn32480> odd... mine have the same thing going... but the flowers can't seem to survive a single day w/o help
[17:47:43] * cmn32480 thinks through the phrasing of that last statement....
[17:47:58] <janrinok> I've won that battle by deliberately planting and growing weeds - which are now, by defintion, my flowers
[17:48:31] * cmn32480 wonders if janrinok is doing what he is told and keeping to all things in moderation, or iof he is doing what he is told in moderation and living like a party animal the rest of the time....
[17:49:02] <janrinok> hey, party animal - I had a beer yesterday!
[17:49:07] <cmn32480> some weeds have excellent looking flowers on them...
[17:49:11] <cmn32480> WOOOOOOOO!
[17:49:23] <cmn32480> I had one over the weekend.
[17:49:47] <cmn32480> had to cut it out of my diet... was having more then I should have...
[17:49:56] <janrinok> I've forgotten half of the commands on irc - I'm struggling to remember things!
[17:50:20] <cmn32480> but since I cut it out almost completely around Christmas, I'm down 15lbs. (about 7 kilos)
[17:50:48] <cmn32480> welll.... /me is talking in the third person
[17:51:01] <janrinok> congratulations - I had to cut back because my other medications were damaging my liver, and drinking beer wasn't going to make it any easier!
[17:51:19] <cmn32480> yes... that is a VERY good reason to cut back
[17:52:44] <janrinok> I offered to stop the meds and keep the beers, doc didn't think that would help too much. Said I could have one glass of wine per day - went and bought a 'display' wine glass which was H U G E! She did at least laugh.
[17:54:26] <cmn32480> 2 liter glasses still count as one glass
[17:54:35] <janrinok> that's what I said!
[17:56:14] <janrinok> brb 5 mins
[17:56:23] <cmn32480> 10-4
[18:03:26] <janrinok> sry - got to go. Say hi to team for me, and best wishes to J and the kids!

[18:30:33] <janrinok> not bad going - I've only been back an hour or two
[18:30:59] <cmn32480> I guess we need to get you set back up on dev and prod as an editor....
[18:31:14] <janrinok> was I taken off them?

[18:32:24] <janrinok> their only role is to drag move volunteers in - not kick anyone out!
[18:33:21] <janrinok> Has anyone volunteered to join the ed team, or even show a passing interest?
[18:34:15] <cmn32480> yeah
[18:34:24] <cmn32480> we have one that has been some interest
[18:34:32] <cmn32480> he and I keep missing ewach other
[18:37:33] <janrinok> Any idea where he is located?
[18:37:52] <cmn32480> irc mostly
[18:38:21] <janrinok> lol - how about geographically. If you keep missing each other he might be in a different tz
[18:38:42] <cmn32480> I don't remember...
[18:38:54] <cmn32480> he told me at one point, but it is a non-US TZ
[18:39:31] <janrinok> well that narrows it down to about 18 other tzz then ...
[18:40:04] <cmn32480> see? I'm trying!
[18:40:18] * janrinok avoids the obvious retort
[18:40:19] <cmn32480> I'm pretty sure he sin't any of the ones that are only in the oceam
[18:40:33] <janrinok> not a strong swimmer then?
[18:41:09] <cmn32480> me? no.. but I'm fat enough that I float pretty good

[18:46:24] <janrinok> :) No, we met them over 10 years ago when we were on holiday - good fun
[18:46:34] <cmn32480> my next guess was the kids

[18:47:29] <cmn32480> like finding a $20 in a jacket that you havcen't work since last winter
[18:47:30] <janrinok> which is better than finding one has less ...
[18:47:36] <janrinok> exactly
[18:47:54] <cmn32480> excellent!
[18:48:07] <cmn32480> I splurged.. and made a new PC
[18:48:33] <janrinok> all SSDs, and multi cores ?
[18:48:43] <cmn32480> https://secure.newegg.com
[18:48:45] <exec> └─ 13Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg
[18:48:47] <cmn32480> no SSD'd
[18:48:51] <cmn32480> still spinning my rust
[18:49:29] <cmn32480> there was a limit on how much pain I was willing to go through from J after the purchase based on the cost
[18:49:59] <janrinok> that power supply would probably power 3 of my computers. I don't go in for superduper graphics
[18:51:24] <cmn32480> trying to get back to playing some games
[18:51:43] <cmn32480> and the OPC I replaced was 10 years old. It was a Dual Core Pentium 4 w/ a Prescott chipset
[18:51:53] <janrinok> don't know why, but games have never appealed to me, probably because I am crap at them
[18:52:21] <cmn32480> mee too... but I find them relaxing
[18:53:52] <janrinok> well, I've given up on trying to solve ZNC for tonight. Will have to be going (again) in a minute or two. Regards as said earlier, and it is good just chatting with you again Chris.
[18:55:20] <cmn32480> you too jan
[18:55:23] <cmn32480> great to see you
[18:55:32] <janrinok> nice to be seen :0
[18:55:35] <cmn32480> I'll let Bytram|away know he missed you
[18:55:52] <cmn32480> depends... if you are in trouble invisible is a helluva lot better
[18:56:08] <janrinok> perhaps we will all meet up over the coming weeks
[18:56:11] <cmn32480> you still ahve acccess to your SN email right?
[18:56:20] <janrinok> yep
[18:56:42] <cmn32480> I'll oping deucalion to get him to reset your pwd or some such
[18:56:48] <cmn32480> but he hasn't been around much lately
[18:57:47] <janrinok> Oh, just another bit of news, my Dad had a stroke about 1 month ago but seems to making a good recovery. The only person he knows is my sister, he cannot remember my brother or I since 4 or 5 years ago.
[18:58:08] <cmn32480> oh dear
[18:58:14] <cmn32480> I'm sorry to hear that
[18:59:15] <janrinok> well, unfortunate but it wasn't a surprise. He keeps on going when everyone thinks that he cannot go on any longer, but I wouldn't call it a 'quality' life
[18:59:49] <cmn32480> understood
[19:00:27] <cmn32480> getting old is hell
[19:00:48] <janrinok> yep - that it is! Anyway, must go now, cu agn
