[02:39:38] <cmn32480> IRC has tumbleweeds tonight
[02:39:44] <Bytram> from before your time, most likely

[02:40:54] <cmn32480> finished up late this afternoon
[02:41:06] <Bytram> best wishes for a safe and uneventful flight
[02:41:11] <cmn32480> instead of heading out at 930pm, I'm out of here at 7:00a,
[02:41:27] <Bytram> 930pm, tonight? or tomorrow night?

[02:42:37] -!- audioguy [audioguy!~audioguy@Soylent/Staff/Developer/audioguy] has joined #editorial
[02:42:37] <cmn32480> too much going on to NOT go to the office
[02:43:22] <Bytram> yeah, I hear ya. some days it's best to show up just to keep things from getting worse in your absence
[02:43:25] <cmn32480> but I've been gorging on Cuban food for two days... so if I don't leave I'm gonna get fat(er)
[02:43:47] <Bytram> tempting fat[e]s?
[02:44:10] <cmn32480> Cuban food doesn't exist in Baltimore
[02:44:17] <cmn32480> at least not good cuban food
[02:44:22] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:44:24] <Bytram> spicy?
[02:44:35] <cmn32480> nope
[02:44:39] <cmn32480> just yummy
[02:45:03] <Bytram> yummy suffices as a description

[02:45:27] <Timmeh> ^ 03Wiki: Cuban sandwich
[02:45:38] <Bytram> clicky
[02:46:32] <cmn32480> been eating lots of roast pork
[02:46:38] <cmn32480> lots of black beans and rice
[02:46:44] <cmn32480> lots of plantains
[02:46:54] <Bytram> lots of gas?
[02:47:01] <cmn32480> not really
[02:47:07] <cmn32480> welll... not more than usual
[02:47:10] <Bytram> lol
[02:48:30] <Bytram> cuban sandwich sounds very tasty, indeed
[02:49:36] <cmn32480> it is all about the bread
[02:50:00] <Bytram> tell me more
[02:51:05] <cmn32480> this guy is the Chef at the Cuban place I ate at growing up
[02:51:05] <cmn32480> https://smile.amazon.com
[02:51:07] <Timmeh> ^ 03( https://www.amazon.com )
[02:51:23] <cmn32480> the bread has to be crusty, but soft inside
[02:57:58] <Bytram> hmmm, like a french baguette?
[02:58:10] <cmn32480> not really
[02:58:22] <Bytram> not THAT crunchy?
[02:58:39] <cmn32480> think a garlic-y buttery pannini pressable without turning to dust
[02:58:50] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:58:53] <Bytram> yum yum!
[02:59:12] <cmn32480> a well made cuban sandwhich is a taste sensation
[03:01:24] <cmn32480> looking to see what I can find in your area
[03:01:34] <Bytram> there's nothing like it
[03:01:56] <Bytram> closest thing would be an "Italian Sandwich", but that is made with a soft submarine roll
[03:02:53] <Bytram> and (usually) just ham (or salami) and cheese, tomatoes, onion, green pepper, black olives, and pickles; salt/pepper/oil

[11:59:04] <CoolHand> I"m leapfrogging the Chase Brandon story since it's non-display and getting close to that time.. others can feel free to rearrange how they see fit..
[12:29:19] <Bytram> CoolHand: ping!

[12:41:44] <Bytram> breaking story on US House of Representativesa being in recess and C-SPAN being turned off so as to not allow broadcast of Democrat's sit in demanding discussion of gun control legislation
[12:42:03] <Bytram> will run story in about 10 minutes unless I hear otherwise
[12:47:29] <Bytram> okay, looks like the house is back in session...
[12:54:16] <chromas> the tv says adjourned until july 5
[12:55:45] <Bytram> oh? Okay.
[12:56:33] <Bytram> chromas: that's for the house of representatives?
[12:57:42] <chromas> the exact note on the graphic is "House has adjourned until July 5"
[12:57:57] <Bytram> got it! THANKS!
[12:58:51] <chromas> also says they're not permitted to show the sit-in
[13:03:20] <CoolHand> Bytram:
[13:03:29] <Bytram> hi!
[13:03:32] <CoolHand> sorry I wasn't paying attention
[13:03:35] <CoolHand> all taken care of?
[13:03:37] <Bytram> no problem
[13:03:49] <Bytram> I just now closed the story; slated to go out at 13:10
[13:03:56] <Bytram> wanna take a looksee?
[13:04:04] <CoolHand> sure
[13:05:08] <Bytram> from what I can tell, the gist of it is: house goes on recess, GOP turns off C-SPAN, dems stage sit-in for gun control legistlation, house suddenly reconvenes [details obscure to me atm], and now the house is apparently on recess until 7/5
[13:05:59] <Bytram> during sit-in and C-SPAN outage, dems use Periscope and Facebook to broadcast a feed of happenings on house floor....
[13:06:26] <Bytram> not certain, but ISTM that C-SPAN then used *those* feeds to broadcast happenings on house floor.
[13:06:44] <CoolHand> yeah.. so Dems are trying to pull a stunt as an end-around for NRA lobby it seems
[13:08:17] <CoolHand> I think you've done about as good with it as one could do..
[13:08:20] <Bytram> i have no idea
[13:08:36] <Bytram> thanks -- actually, original owner did the heavyu lifting
[13:08:55] <CoolHand> ahhh
[13:09:17] <Bytram> I saw the story on ARS this am, had over 10 *pages* of comments -- figured we should run it,
[13:09:20] <Bytram> came on here
[13:09:26] <Bytram> only saw one submission wrt that story
[13:09:33] <Bytram> OO was submitter
[13:09:36] <Bytram> took it from there
[13:09:49] <CoolHand> It's so House of Cards'ish...
[13:10:01] <Bytram> wouldn't know -- don't watch TV
[13:10:19] <Bytram> just found it took up way too much time, commercials are way too strident, and
[13:10:25] * chromas gives Bytram an onion
[13:10:26] <Bytram> I hve much more useful things to do with my time
[13:10:31] <Bytram> like edit stories on SN
[13:10:33] <Bytram> =)
[13:10:54] <Bytram> And have interesting conversations on IRC, of course!
[13:11:50] <CoolHand> yes, of course
[13:11:52] <CoolHand> haha
[13:12:15] <Bytram> laughter is GOOD for whatever ails ya,
[13:12:25] <Bytram> better than whatever ales ya -- those give hangovers
[13:12:31] <Bytram> =)
[13:12:46] <CoolHand> I cut out TV when I was single.. but my wife forced corruption back on me
[13:13:12] <Bytram> ruining your morals! or is that your morales?
[13:18:24] <CoolHand> as long as she doesn't ruin my Morels..
[13:18:32] <CoolHand> they're too tasty
[13:18:34] <CoolHand> and rare

[13:19:36] <Bytram> I learned something today -- now whether or not I *remember* it is another matter! time for more coffee... biab
[13:21:12] <CoolHand> we normally just call them mushrooms around here.. sometimes goosenecks when being specific (to differentiate from sponges, the other main edible type picked round these parts)
[13:21:34] <Bytram> nod nod
[13:21:38] <Bytram> fetching coffee; biab
[13:21:41] <Bytram> afk
