[01:42:20] <Bytram> takyon: are you still getting errors?
[01:42:31] <cmn32480> I'm backing out of turing Bytram
[01:42:37] <Bytram> k, thnx

[01:43:11] * exec allegedly throws a pitcher of tongue awareness month at bytram
[01:43:19] <Bytram> ~gday cmn32480
[01:43:21] * exec literally inserts a DD cup of celerons into cmn32480
[01:43:24] * cmn32480 isn't really sure what to make of that
[01:43:28] <Bytram> nor am i
[01:43:55] <Bytram> the turing story is actually quite intersting
[01:44:04] <cmn32480> agreed
[01:44:12] <cmn32480> was jsut gettign to it when I saw you already in it
[01:44:16] <Bytram> I was reading the pdf at the bottom and it brought back quite a few vivid memories from
[01:44:19] <Bytram> my days in college
[01:44:39] <Bytram> such a simple, yet amazingly powerful construct, those turing machines are
[01:44:39] <cmn32480> how is Fred Flintstone, by the way?
[01:44:48] <Bytram> I dunno, ask wilma
[01:44:56] * Bytram used to work for a woman named wilma
[01:45:08] <cmn32480> I'll roll over and ask her
[01:45:13] <Bytram> LOL!
[01:46:13] * Bytram wonders if Turing were around now, if he would still use tape, or would use an SSD for better performance
[01:46:17] <Bytram> boom tish!
[01:47:49] <Bytram> don't kn ow if you noticed, but the story queue emptied out there for a bit.
[01:48:06] <cmn32480> It was duly noted
[01:48:08] <Bytram> happened to noticed and was able to push out a story using my cell phone...
[01:48:26] <Bytram> darn on-screen kbd took up 60% of the screen
[01:48:30] <cmn32480> been several weeks of tumbleweeds in the sub queue
[01:48:43] <Bytram> But, I 8can* be stubborn about such things and was
[01:48:48] <Bytram> able to get it done
[01:48:50] <Bytram> nod ndo
[01:48:59] * cmn32480 gets worried in dry spells like this
[01:49:38] <Bytram> which reminds me that I was thinking of updating the HoF code to display story submission counts for both authors and for non-authors
[01:50:03] <Bytram> one of our top submitters (T) is not even listed -- doesn't seem right.
[01:50:21] <cmn32480> should we have a beggar line at the bottom of each sub?
[01:50:37] <Bytram> hmm,
[01:50:37] <cmn32480> I agree
[01:50:58] <Bytram> don't think a beggar line woud do it, would soon get 'zoned out'
[01:51:19] <Bytram> better to run a story noting the shortage and offering gratitude to those who have submitted, and ask for donations form others.

[02:15:05] <Bytram> poke
[02:15:13] <cmn32480> online ins team?
[02:17:38] <Bytram> as for the ted submission, IIRC Deucalioon had taken that and was writing it up; dunno what happened after that.
[02:17:41] <SirFinkus> no, skype
[02:17:45] <Bytram> SirFinkus: any reply?
[02:17:51] <Bytram> I've received nothing, yet, from PJ

[02:26:41] <cmn32480> fuck it... kick start the bitch and be done w/ it
[02:26:48] <takyon> that doesn't explain how the same issues we're happening 24 hours ago, which were then fixed by TMB, and recurred now

[02:27:18] <cmn32480> sudo shutdown -r 1
[02:27:18] <Bytram> seems mysql crashes, and a restart seems to make it okay... for a while
[02:27:56] <Bytram> that forces a restart, too?
[02:28:34] <cmn32480> that is the standard linux command to restart the entire box
[02:28:54] <Bytram> SirF contacted NC who replied that he would get to it

[02:34:50] <takyon> *later
[02:34:51] <SirFinkus> it's like one of those movies where they make a deal with the devil
[02:34:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> so nc is fixing things or i need to?
[02:35:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, you prolly got load balanced to hydrogen, which is still alive
[02:35:16] <SirFinkus> I'd ask nc, he's in #soylent

[13:31:19] <takyon> CoolHand
[13:31:44] <takyon> someone handled receiving gringer's answers from that Q&A
[13:31:55] <takyon> except they have never posted them or edited them into a post
[13:32:01] <takyon> I'm not sure who that is
[13:32:32] <takyon> I can't be blamed for that story having been sitting there
[13:32:53] <takyon> sooooooooooooooooooooo
[13:33:09] <takyon> Idk, post it? gringer said he would repost the answer anyway AFAIK
[13:33:25] <takyon> really annoying that we haven't been able to get that out
[13:44:17] <cmn32480> takyon - I think Deucalion was handling that
[13:44:28] <cmn32480> but he got a sever case of new-job-itis
[13:45:14] <takyon> if Deucalion can email that to one of us, we can edit it
[14:18:43] <CoolHand> takyon: wasn't meaning to "blame you" for it sitting there... I just didn't understand..
[14:19:02] <CoolHand> (sorry if you took it that way)
[14:19:12] <takyon> I just want it to get done
[14:20:15] <CoolHand> yeah, when we're having readers point out out that its just been sitting there, that's pretty bad.. :)
[14:22:22] <CoolHand> yeah, "I have answered most of the questions that were put in the previous submission, and will put those answers as comments in this post if the editors don't transfer what I've already emailed to them."
[14:22:39] <CoolHand> so, since we're hung up on not having them, I say we post it...
[14:22:44] <takyon> I didn't see any readers point it out, but i vbelieve you
[14:23:12] <CoolHand> takyon: it was in some story this morning somebody commented on it it (that's when I went to look at it again and posted editors comment in our notes)
[14:24:27] <CoolHand> alternatively, since gringer has his email address in it, we could email him and ask him for the answers he obviously has, then post them..
[14:26:20] <takyon> ok
[14:26:24] <takyon> who wants to handle it
[14:26:42] <takyon> I will do it if later today if everyone else chickens out
[14:27:10] <takyon> just subbed some stories, should be enough to cover thursday
[14:27:14] <takyon> along with P666
[14:27:16] <cmn32480> I'm up to my ass in alligators at work
[14:27:35] <cmn32480> time is not on my side atm
[14:27:58] <CoolHand> takyon: if you have time, I'll let u have at it.. I'm similar to cmn32480 with work (although probably not quite as bad as that)
[14:28:06] <takyon> k
[14:30:20] <CoolHand> alligators only to my knees instead of my ass..
[14:30:27] <CoolHand> :)

[19:24:19] <Alligator> Hi Guys!
[19:24:28] Alligator is now known as Bytram
[19:24:42] <Bytram> ah, that feels better
[19:24:44] <Bytram> sorry tohear you are all pretty slammed
[19:24:57] <Bytram> is a gorgeous day, but had to pop in to see how things are.
[19:25:36] <Bytram> I was involved with the gringer story and last I new, Deucalion had it and was editing it up for pushing out to the site -- think he was mostly done and it prolly just fell through the cracks.
[19:30:54] <Bytram> am taking a look around to confirm for sure
[19:42:48] <Bytram> nothing definite yet... still looking
[20:00:09] <Bytram> best I could find were a few emails between Deucalion and me...
[20:00:43] <Bytram> just sent out an email asking him to forward to me what he has and that I'd be happy to work on it.

[20:36:56] * Bytram just downloaded and installed... need to reboot for it to take effect... and I've got a dozen cmd windows and another dozen apps running. I guess it would not hurt to see if windows will remember what I had running?
[20:37:31] * Bytram notes that pale moon has 67 tabs open... yikes!
[20:39:40] <Bytram> may be a while before I get back... might not be for a few hours.
