[01:52:22] <Bytram> I just pushed out a story... now have a bit of a breather while I make dinner and then will get on pushing out some more.
[01:56:56] * cmn32480 fell asleep at the switch again
[01:58:00] <Bytram> cmn32480: you'd been on quite a tear for along stretch -- it's grueling and exhausting -- don't be too hard on yourself!
[01:58:30] <cmn32480> cub scout day camp is a VERY long grueling grind
[01:58:33] <Bytram> I'd noticed that and went on a bit of a push, myself, for a couple days to give folks a breather.. and then work caught up with me and I needed one.
[01:58:41] <cmn32480> hehe
[01:58:44] <cmn32480> I know the feeling
[01:58:51] * Bytram belatedly offers cmn32480 a jar of ear plugs
[01:59:05] <Bytram> teamwork++
[01:59:05] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 99
[01:59:22] * cmn32480 would prefer a large tankfull of piranha
[01:59:27] <Bytram> I noticed that the other eds jumped in and picked up the slack
[01:59:34] <cmn32480> as expected
[01:59:47] <cmn32480> this group is pretty on top of things
[01:59:59] <Bytram> yep, really good folks we got here!
[02:00:26] <Bytram> on another positive note, have you noticed how the number of story submissions has really improved since I ran that last poll? and
[02:00:42] <Bytram> how we got a nice bump in suscriptions with the recent story?...
[02:00:55] <Bytram> we've got a pretty good community, here, too!
[02:01:06] <cmn32480> I've barely had time to look at a computer lately
[02:01:27] <Bytram> that has its plusses and minuses
[02:01:36] <cmn32480> certainly haven't read anything on the site since last week at the most recent
[02:01:43] <cmn32480> haven't been on IRC in days
[02:02:14] <Bytram> yeah, your ansence has been noted and your pay has been docked 5% ;-)
[02:02:41] <cmn32480> I have managed to not feed any of my Cub scouts to the fictitious alligators in the swamp near the day camp
[02:02:53] <cmn32480> not saying I haven't wanted to
[02:03:07] <Bytram> how many kids?
[02:03:17] <cmn32480> I've also wanted to beat several of them senseless with the PVC flagpole we are carrying
[02:03:18] <cmn32480> 8
[02:03:22] <cmn32480> age 5-7
[02:03:44] <Bytram> yeah, that's too many for any one person, or even a dozen!
[02:03:54] <cmn32480> there are 3 of us
[02:03:58] * Bytram has a very great appreciation for primary school teachers
[02:04:06] <cmn32480> 3 adults and we pulled in a youth volunteer today
[02:04:20] <Bytram> safety in numbers!
[02:05:48] <Bytram> how much longer with the cubs? rest of the week?
[02:05:53] <cmn32480> tomorrow
[02:05:58] <cmn32480> and then it's miller time
[02:06:10] <Bytram> Miller -- someone who mills grain
[02:06:29] <Bytram> brb -- fetching dinner
[02:13:31] * Bytram returns, clicks, types, and chews
[02:14:13] * cmn32480 nods, clicks, posts, and drinks
[02:15:12] <cmn32480> ACLU @ 05:07
[02:17:52] <Bytram> k
[02:18:53] * Bytram gags over a submission that has a <br> tag after each and every line that was in a pdf
[02:19:38] * Bytram is working the 'regulate encryption' story
[02:23:41] <cmn32480> runaway
[02:24:00] <cmn32480> yeah I saw it and decided that I don't have the gumption to work it tonight
[02:26:06] <Bytram> is not too bad; pulled it into emacs (plugins FTW), did a global replace of <br> with a space, and am tidying up now
[02:28:29] <Bytram> brb -- dishes
[02:31:53] <cmn32480> google lawsuit 06:51
[02:34:31] <Bytram> gnawed gnawed =)
[02:35:08] <Bytram> I've got a slightly flakey conneciton today; putting story out at 8:27 and then going back in to finish it up
[02:35:19] <cmn32480> 10-4
[02:36:16] <Bytram> =6 ?
[02:36:21] <Bytram> ;)
[02:36:44] <Bytram> oooprs, set wrong time... fixing
[02:46:04] * Bytram notes that it is somehow fitting that the story was submission # 14500 -- a nice, round number!
[02:46:14] <cmn32480> lol
[02:46:38] <cmn32480> famous sheep at 12:02
[02:47:06] <Bytram> counting on it? (the time certainly seems appropriate for counting them)
[02:47:15] <Bytram> Hello Dolly!
[02:48:03] <cmn32480> or if you are Chinese.... Horro Dorry
[02:50:45] <Bytram> that story on encryption was a bit of a challenge, but I think I got the gist of it.
[02:53:26] * Bytram starts 2nding stories -- too much red on the story list page
[02:57:51] <Bytram> only minor stuff so far.
[02:58:08] * cmn32480 is quickly runnign out of steam
[02:58:31] * Bytram suggests putting a kettle on the boil
[03:00:39] <Bytram> that google story has an interesting side to it... what if someone was just investigating their options, applied (on the down-low) to google and got denied. Providing that information to researchers may put their current job in jeapordy.
[03:01:27] <Bytram> hhm, on 2nd thought, the plaintiffs would contact the applicant, so it's not what I feared, at first.
[03:03:27] * Bytram reviews dolly
[03:03:33] <Bytram> (the story,t hatis)
[03:07:10] <Bytram> done reviewing dolly (that author's submissions always seems to include multiple places containing: "&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; " -- I delete it every time I see it. (Seems to be an old-school way of indenting a paragraph.)
[03:07:44] <cmn32480> i didn't notice it...
[03:08:10] <Bytram> I noticed it a while back, so am attuned to it. Now, I cannot NOT notice it!
[03:09:26] * Bytram goes to submit a story on Oragle losing $beelions in lawsuit by HPE
[03:18:55] <Bytram> story submitted; could really use some discussion-encouraging material at the end -- can't come up with anything atm.
[03:21:06] * Bytram|away is gonna call it a night
[03:21:10] <Bytram|away> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:21:12] * exec insensitively spews a zip archive of onion rings on cmn32480
[03:21:45] <Bytram|away> cmn32480: Good chatting with you today; hope you enjoy your last day with the kids.
[03:31:25] <cmn32480> ~gnight Bytram
[03:31:26] * exec fanatically runs the Installshield Wizard to set up a wallet of boiled dog for Bytram
[03:31:36] <cmn32480> ~gnight Bytram|away
[03:31:38] * exec covertly shoves a cache of embiggening in Bytram|away
