[17:17:12] * exec democratically irritates a quart of popplers with janrinok
[17:17:15] <janrinok> cmn!!
[17:17:36] <Bytram> janrinok: I *just* sent you an email!
[17:17:41] <janrinok> that sounded almost like an aussie greeting!
[17:17:43] <Bytram> so good to 'SEE' you!
[17:17:58] <janrinok> Bytram, just read it thanks. Not a problem
[17:18:04] <Bytram> nod nod
[17:18:15] <Bytram> howz thingz?
[17:18:34] <janrinok> it is merely one email in a string of cut-outs before it gets to my actual email address
[17:18:55] * nick hat tip to janrinok
[17:18:58] <Bytram> don't know if it should qualigfy as 'breaking news' but I just subbed a story on a HUGE number of email accts/pwds being pwned
[17:19:04] <janrinok> I've spent most of the holiday today in the garden, but am feeling a bit tired from all of the hard work :)
[17:19:13] <Bytram> janrinok: I'm glad!
[17:19:21] <janrinok> nick, greetings to you too!
[17:19:25] <Bytram> oops, timing problem there!
[17:19:36] <Bytram> what are you growing?
[17:19:42] <Bytram> besides tired!
[17:19:53] <janrinok> weeds!
[17:20:21] <Bytram> ROFL!!!!
[17:20:31] <Bytram> You haven't skipped a beat!
[17:20:54] <janrinok> I was injured and then tired from Oct last year. I've had to try to catch up on my gardening, and begin to chop wood to see us prepared for next winter...
[17:21:21] <Bytram> that's a lot of work...
[17:21:30] <janrinok> hows life in the rocks and clocks world?
[17:21:37] <Bytram> back in the day, I helped cut/split many a cord of wood.
[17:22:09] <Bytram> all-in-all, pretty good. just finished working a 6-day stretch and have today off.
[17:22:22] <Bytram> trying to catch up on thoings and procrastinate at the same time =)
[17:22:24] <janrinok> and here you are wasting time chatting to me!
[17:22:29] <Bytram> see!
[17:22:42] * janrinok appreciates it
[17:23:15] <Bytram> got a new-to-me android phone after my old blackberry kicked the bucket -- had one too many drops and the kbd became non-responsive
[17:23:28] <Bytram> need to fini9sh writing some code to bring over my contacts info
[17:23:37] <janrinok> hasn't Obama got one that he wont be needing soon?
[17:23:47] <Bytram> lol
[17:24:00] <Bytram> now that would have some interesting contacts, I'm sure!
[17:24:19] <janrinok> I'm stocking up with pop corn for when Trump gets elected. In fact, I think most of the rest of the world is...
[17:24:32] * Bytram shudders
[17:25:59] <cmn32480> sorry had a VP come a-whining
[17:26:23] <Bytram> #smake VP
[17:26:26] <Bytram> ;)
[17:26:40] <cmn32480> I don't think that bot lives here....
[17:26:41] <janrinok> One benefit from the compromise of emails is I have been told that I can have a bigger penis, make loads of contacts with Russian girls, and be rich by working from home. Who'd have guessed?

[17:27:23] * MrPlow smakes VP upside the head with a facepalm
[17:27:50] <cmn32480> yes... but I *think* a #join is not a protected command
[17:27:52] <Bytram> janrinok: more than likely, you'll end up with a bunch of rich russian girls with big ...
[17:28:01] <cmn32480> appetites for your wallet?
[17:28:02] <Bytram> idk
[17:28:09] <janrinok> well, that would certainly be a change...
[17:28:24] <Bytram> yep
[17:28:56] <Bytram> change you can believe in, right?
[17:29:15] <cmn32480> change in my pocekt is all that';s left since Obama took office
[17:29:23] <janrinok> I've also received links to nude photos of girls I supposedly know - can't remember any of them. Perhaps it my age...
[17:29:36] <cmn32480> and you didn't share...
[17:29:42] <cmn32480> some friend!
[17:29:49] <janrinok> damn, I caught cmn's typing disease
[17:30:02] <cmn32480> yer welcome
[17:30:38] <Bytram> janrinok: how's the weather over there?
[17:30:43] <cmn32480> good to know that I am contagious
[17:30:49] * cmn32480 gets a bubble
[17:31:01] * Bytram looks around for some antiseptic
[17:31:01] <janrinok> brilliant. warm, sunny, and pleasant - at least for the next 48hrs
[17:32:19] <Bytram> nice!
[17:32:19] <Bytram> here, it is overcast with rain later and temps around 10C

[17:34:17] <janrinok> oooh - systemd, now that's an original name for a bot
[17:35:31] <janrinok> Nick, how is life in the big smoke?
[17:36:19] <nick> thinking a spaceship might be a good idea
[17:36:31] <janrinok> lol, how's the business?
[17:37:46] <nick> business is ok, been getting shit done, managed to get in a trip to south america as a result
[17:38:10] <janrinok> woooh, an international tycoon!
[17:38:11] <nick> glad to see you've found your way back here :)
[17:38:30] <janrinok> stumbled back here by mistake, I think :)
[17:38:57] <Bytram> brb
[17:38:57] <janrinok> can't log in to znc, so have no record of what is said behind my back
[17:39:05] <nick> not the worst mistake you can make :p
[17:39:29] <janrinok> this is the first sane conversation that I have had in 6 months or so
[17:39:49] <Bytram> janrinok: your best bet on that one would be to check in with Deucalion (fka as Juggs)
[17:39:49] <nick> if this is sane, well damn.
[17:40:01] <janrinok> see, that is how bad the French are!
[17:40:27] <cmn32480> HEY!@!!!!!! We talked 2 days ago!!!!
[17:40:30] <Bytram> it appears that S/N has just reached the 800+ days on-line mark (811, to be precise -- from 2014-02-14)
[17:40:44] <Bytram> I *saw* that conversation -- like he said
[17:40:46] <cmn32480> YOu saying that our conversation was insane?????
[17:40:55] <janrinok> I might stretch that to the second convo then
[17:41:11] * Bytram thoroughly enjoyed it
[17:41:12] <nick> if you're in the conversation cmn32480, i can't see sanity being involved
[17:41:23] <janrinok> good point, well made#
[17:41:34] <nick> being insane, i can recognise it.
[17:41:42] * cmn32480 looks around... notes the people in the room and mutters somethign about the pot and the kettle
[17:41:55] <Bytram> there's some black humor
[17:42:07] <cmn32480> dpn't be racist Bytram
[17:42:08] <Bytram> what's that, a triple entendre?
[17:42:36] <janrinok> that's a big word - 'a'
[17:42:52] <Bytram> btw, I've seen some interesting names in my day (I have a very multi-national clientèle), but...
[17:43:08] <Bytram> http://www.computerworld.com
[17:43:09] <systemd> ^ 03FBI uses 5th-Amendment loophole to unlock iPhone of Bkhchadzhyan | Computerworld
[17:43:09] <Bytram> "FBI uses 5th-Amendment loophole to unlock iPhone of Bkhchadzhyan"
[17:43:20] <Bytram> how in the world do you pronounce THAT name?
[17:43:33] <cmn32480> DUPE!!!!
[17:43:34] <janrinok> I actually knew a guy called Kettle - he was very pissed off with that particular phrase
[17:43:46] <Bytram> book-hadz-yan?
[17:44:11] <Bytram> bik-chadz-yan?
[17:44:25] * Bytram channels "Ma and Pa Kettle"
[17:44:45] <janrinok> I was rather more interested that one of the much vaunted Amendments has a 'loophole'
[17:45:28] <nick> can't be so, the constitution is perfect, that's why it's been so easy for everyone to agree on what the intent was
[17:45:30] <Bytram> well, there are attempts to create one -- let's see how successful they are in the long run.
[17:45:52] <Bytram> in this case, it matches what had been suggested long ago -- do not use a fingerprint reader for security
[17:46:07] <Bytram> your fingerprint should be treated as your userid, not your password!
[17:46:13] <cmn32480> mythbusters busted those a long time ago
[17:46:26] <cmn32480> like 5 or 6 seasons
[17:46:40] <cmn32480> past
[17:47:13] <Bytram> and, it's not that hard to pull a fingerprint off a cell phone. Doh!
[17:48:24] <nick> how am i supposed to sell fringerprint scanners now....
[17:48:43] <janrinok> Like you sell everything else - hype it up, flog it, and run ?
[17:48:56] <nick> lol
[17:49:14] <nick> if i did that, think i'd still be in south america
[17:50:29] <janrinok> I had a convo with a salesman a day or two back, who wanted to 'enhance' my internet connection so that I had cheaper calls for my cell/portable phone. He would not believe that we do not _own_ a cell phone!
[17:51:17] <janrinok> I asked him if he sold a cell with large positive response buttons suitable for a disabled person, and he just didn't understand.
[17:51:46] <janrinok> Not much point owning a phone that S couldn't use in an emergency
[17:51:50] <Bytram> nod nod
[17:52:05] <Bytram> there are some who do not know that you just can't tell
[18:06:00] <Bytram> ok, time for me to get a meal together; back in a bit.
[18:06:18] <janrinok> bon appetite!
[18:07:12] <janrinok> that should have been either 'bonne appetite' or 'bon appetit'
[18:07:23] <janrinok> but bollocks, he knew what I meant
[18:08:06] <Bytram> Bonn Appetite -- german sausage?
[18:08:06] <Bytram> ;)
[18:08:21] <janrinok> v good, I hadn't thought of that one
[18:14:47] * cmn32480 makes a mental note.. Bytram loves the sausage...
[18:14:53] <janrinok> lol
[18:15:19] <janrinok> cmn32480, you're a very naughty boy
[18:15:29] <cmn32480> who? me?
[18:15:38] * cmn32480 polishes his halo
[18:16:02] <janrinok> does it still fit - you haven't been entitled to wear it for so long now
[18:17:47] <cmn32480> I had the jewler expand it slightly...
[18:17:55] <cmn32480> kinda like a big wedding ring
[18:17:55] <janrinok> :)
[18:20:27] <cmn32480> janrinok - meant to ask... how are your weeds handling the nice weather? they thriving?
[18:20:47] <janrinok> stormin! bigger than ever.
[18:21:13] <cmn32480> hehe... oh good.. then apparently I've got your green thumb... mine are about the same!
[18:22:27] <janrinok> They've been ignored since the end of last year, and they have made the most of the opportunity. If I find a flowershow with a 'weed' category, I've got it hacked...
[18:22:47] * cmn32480 wonders if that actually exists...
[18:23:11] <cmn32480> but if the weeds were hacked... that means you either cut them down, or they took performance enhancing drugs.
[18:23:22] <janrinok> I'll let you know if I find one
[18:23:22] <cmn32480> either way, you get disqualified
[18:24:18] <cmn32480> I think my bag of "Weed and Feed" fertilizer ACTUALLY said "Feed your Weeds"
[18:25:01] <janrinok> yep, mine are drinking RoundUp and Weedol like it is going out of fashion
[18:25:29] <cmn32480> mayeb we should switch to a fertilizer and surprise the shit out of them
[18:25:54] <janrinok> they'd probably just laugh at me. I can feel them smirking behind my back
[18:31:31] <Bytram> beware if one of them goes by the name of 'Audrey'
[18:32:04] <janrinok> ....? Perhaps I am a bit slow today...?
[18:32:27] <Bytram> if I am not mistaken, that is a name from 'Little House of Horrors'
[18:33:02] <janrinok> you're prolly correct - not a film I remember the details of. But a very apt quote in that case...
[18:34:08] <Bytram> was a play (that may or may not have become a film) -- neither of which I've seen -- but it does have some notoriety
[18:34:42] <cmn32480> Little Shop of Horrors
[18:34:43] <janrinok> it is a film as well - I know that I have seen it but did not remember the character name
[18:36:03] <Bytram> was very popular in its day, but I'm not into gore and guts -- so never saw either of them
[18:36:11] <Bytram> brb
[18:42:11] <cmn32480> janrinok - you better start editing again.. Bytram has gained a lot of ground in the last few months....

[18:42:35] * cmn32480 notes you are still on top by about 600 stories published
[18:42:41] <janrinok> yes, I've noticed. But I'm not sure that I can give that commitment just yet
[18:43:01] <cmn32480> oh you should be commited all right
[18:43:07] <cmn32480> just like the rest of us!

[18:44:20] * janrinok watches, and bides his time
[18:44:54] * cmn32480 see janrinok sleeping and sends over a can of shaving cream and a feather
[18:46:16] <cmn32480> janrinok - take all the time you need. we are quite happy to see you here on IRC for witty banter and talk of our gardening follies
[18:47:02] <Bytram> ^^^ what he said!
[18:47:46] <Bytram> being closest in the overtake possible category, I cannot help but sit in amazement what you accomplished so rapidly -- the toll must have been *enormous*
[18:52:53] <cmn32480> wait.. he paid a toll to do this?
[18:53:01] <cmn32480> you'd think we should have been paying him!
[18:53:04] <janrinok> sry - thanks for your comments but I'm struggling around the computer room with a leg cramp! Bloody embarrassing!

[18:57:24] <Bytram> biab; dishes
[18:57:59] <janrinok> well, perhaps it is a sign that I ought to call it a day. Have a good one everybody, and see you over the w/e I hope!
[19:00:33] <janrinok> no talking behind my back once I've gone....
[19:00:40] -!- janrinok has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[19:04:53] <cmn32480> Excellent.. now we can talk behind his back!
[19:04:53] <Bytram> ahhh, just missed him.
[19:05:08] * Bytram notes this channel is logged
[19:05:08] <cmn32480> me too
[19:05:11] <cmn32480> it happens
[19:05:14] <Bytram> nod nod
[19:05:25] <Bytram> and I'm starting to feel the post-meal sleepies -- time for a nap
[19:05:45] <cmn32480> must be rough
[19:06:05] <Bytram> after working 6-days-in-a-row, I need to catch up!
[19:06:17] <cmn32480> you ahve a good nap
[19:06:34] <Bytram> gracias!
[19:06:37] <cmn32480> I'm gonna keep working
[19:06:41] <Bytram> btw, how are things going for YOU?
[19:06:59] <cmn32480> been good
[19:07:06] <Bytram> glad to 'hear' it!
[19:07:12] <Bytram> how's that mulch pile?
[19:07:13] <cmn32480> the day at the zoo w/ my kindergartener went well
[19:07:18] <Bytram> I bet!
[19:07:20] <cmn32480> how 'bout you?
[19:07:28] <cmn32480> other then having to nap on your day off, I mean
[19:07:34] <Bytram> all-in-all, good.
[19:07:40] <cmn32480> excellent
[19:08:13] <Bytram> Keep reminding myself that there are people who are, at this very moment, wishing for the kind of life that I have and am complaining about. Puts it in a whole new perspective.
[19:08:24] <cmn32480> yeah
[19:08:30] <cmn32480> gotta keep that in mind
[19:08:35] <cmn32480> makes the world a lot more tolerable
[19:08:39] <Bytram> When I make a gratitude list, things seem to take on a whole new perspective.
[19:08:43] <Bytram> zactly
[19:12:17] <Bytram> hey, while you're here... want to clean out the long-pending submissions in the queue?
[19:13:55] <cmn32480> sure I'll take a stab at tit
[19:14:26] <Bytram> 'Paypal hypocrisy' and 'free calculator' stories are from ACs
[19:14:30] <Bytram> I say bin 'em; agree?
[19:16:15] <cmn32480> yes
[19:16:16] <cmn32480> bin it
[19:16:22] <Bytram> as for the 'Activist, Editor slain' story, though I'd like to run it, not really seeing how it would be a good fit for our site.
[19:17:37] <Bytram> 'Verizon strike' story seems *VERY* slanted -- much too wide of being a bit balanced to run.
[19:18:07] <Bytram> okay, first two suggested stories have been binned
[19:18:15] <cmn32480> bin it
[19:18:59] <Bytram> editor story gpoing... /me needs to give reason... interesting story, but wasn't thought to be of interest to the general community
[19:19:00] <Bytram> ?
[19:21:19] <Bytram> "Interesting story, but wasn't thought to be of interest to the general community. Many thanks for making a submission and please try again!"
[19:22:17] <Bytram> gone.
[19:23:06] <cmn32480> good
[19:23:09] <cmn32480> sorry phone rang
[19:23:41] <Bytram> npp
[19:23:57] * Bytram just realized -- there's no email/acct assoc with the verizon sotry.
[19:24:03] <Bytram> can just delete it w/o reason.
[19:24:15] <Bytram> gone
[19:27:16] <Bytram> man, the 2nd Pyra article is looooooooooooooooon!
[19:27:23] <Bytram> *loooooooooong
[19:27:52] <cmn32480> the Verizon story was gerwg_
[19:27:57] <Bytram> nod
[19:28:08] <Bytram> thoughts on the Pyra?
[19:28:40] <cmn32480> need to read it.
[19:28:44] <cmn32480> NEXT!
[19:28:51] <Bytram> I suggest running the first of the two submissions, and ditch the AC (2nd) story.
[19:29:23] <cmn32480> reads like a slashvertisement
[19:30:01] <Bytram> yeah, it does.
[19:31:00] <Bytram> your call, bin 'em or not.
[19:35:48] <cmn32480> lemme reead the second one
[19:35:51] <cmn32480> leave it for now
[19:37:53] <Bytram> k
[19:40:14] <cmn32480> the AC sub is far better, I think
[19:40:27] <cmn32480> now that I see what it is, it is an interesting piece of kit
[19:41:05] <Bytram> true, but at a *very* quick glance, it seems so long, my first thought is that it was a copy of the specs form the offivcial site?
[19:41:07] <Bytram> idk, didn't pay close enough attention
[20:32:31] <Bytram> okay, I just subbed a story about choosing between shipping data to a cloud provider or sending it over the 'net.
[20:33:09] <Bytram> I'm not terribly awake, so please review it before posting with an extra-fine-toothed-comb!
[20:33:09] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[20:33:19] <Bytram|away> calling it a day. laters everyone!
