[12:42:48] <Bytram> CoolHand: Hey! Welcome to the 800 club! https://soylentnews.org
[12:42:48] <Timmeh> ^✓ 03SoylentNews: Hall of Fame
[13:51:07] <CoolHand> Bytram: thank you, sir!
[13:51:31] <Bytram> no, thank YOU!!!
[13:51:43] <n1> CoolHand++
[13:51:44] <Bender> karma - coolhand: 33
[13:51:47] <CoolHand> no - thank you
[13:51:49] <CoolHand> :)
[13:51:49] <Bytram> I've been a bit overloaded of late and it was a real thrill to see you step up and carry the load!
[13:52:14] <CoolHand> well lately, it seems like the load is spread much more nicely than it has since I've begun being an editor..
[13:52:17] <CoolHand> very nice..
[13:52:29] * Bytram dives into the obscura of windows' assoc and ftype
[13:52:53] <n1> is important to spread the load, our sanity and the quality of the site suffers if we don't
[13:53:33] <CoolHand> n1 - agreed!
[13:54:22] <Bytram> n1: you got that right! I can certainly attest that my posting has not been up to its usual fine-toothed-comb levels of late
[13:55:09] <n1> i'm currently hanging my head in shame over the 'school stabbing' story from 2014
[13:55:59] <Bytram> ummm, that was quite a LONG while ago -- can't change the past -- so I find it's best to take whatever lessons one can from the experience, and then just move on to the current day
[13:56:19] <n1> the story we put up was 2 days ago
[13:56:34] <Bytram> ?? I thought you said 2014
[13:56:44] <n1> the story was from 2014 but tmb submitted it a couple days ago
[13:56:51] <n1> and i didn't catch it when putting it through
[13:56:53] <Bytram> oh? oh.
[13:57:08] <Bytram> I've been bit by that a couple times, myself
[13:57:19] <Bytram> and, it seems, nor did whomever 2nded it
[13:57:24] <Bytram> teamwork++
[13:57:24] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 96
[13:57:27] <n1> lol
[13:57:34] <Bytram> amirite?
[13:57:49] <Bytram> btw, how's your windows knowledge?
[13:57:55] * n1 checks to see who that whomever was
[13:58:11] <n1> whats the issue?
[13:58:17] <Bytram> I've just installed strawberry perl on my windows box and am now about to set up an assoc and ftype for getting access to it
[13:58:36] <Bytram> I already have c:\tools\util\ in my path
[13:58:53] <Bytram> Strawberry Perl (SP from now on) does not allow itself to be installed in a dir that hasa a space in the dir name
[13:59:06] <Bytram> IOW c:\Program Files is out
[13:59:58] <Bytram> so, the exe is now located at: c:\tools\perl\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe
[14:00:42] <Bytram> i am thinking of setting up a symbolic link c:\tools\util\perl.exe --> c:\tools\perl\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe
[14:01:00] <Bytram> and THEN set up the ASSOC and FTYPE to point to the symlink
[14:01:42] <Bytram> somethjing is gnawing at me about any dlls and their being findable if I do that
[14:01:51] <Bytram> hmmm
[14:01:54] <Bytram> KISS
[14:02:24] <Bytram> I'll just setup the assoc/type to point to where its at and keep it simple;l so that if/when I run into problems I'll still be able to figure out what I did!
[14:02:29] <Bytram> make sense?
[14:02:38] <n1> that's what i'd do
[14:03:18] <Bytram> hmmm, better backup my assoc/ftype before I start
[14:03:30] <n1> less points of fail is usually the way forward in my experience
[14:08:10] <Bytram> looks like it worked! yay!
[14:08:13] <Bytram> break time; biab
[14:08:20] <Bytram> n1++ thanks!
[14:08:20] <Bender> karma - n1: 27
[14:08:35] <n1> not that i did anything, but no problem ;p
[14:13:37] <Bytram> aka "rubber ducky debugging"
[14:14:12] <Bytram> confirmed my gut feeling as to which was the better/safer path to take
[14:14:32] <Bytram> hmmm, need to update my pathext env var, too
[14:19:30] <Bytram> okay, updated system variable for pathext; WAS: PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH is now: PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.PL;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH
