[01:51:54] <Bytram> ~gday cmn32480
[01:51:56] * exec hurriedly throws a safespace of minerals at cmn32480
[01:54:46] <cmn32480> bytram
[01:54:58] <Bytram> how's thingsa?
[01:55:00] <cmn32480> sorry.. forgot I was logged in downstairs when I started editing while watching TV
[01:55:05] <Bytram> np
[01:55:12] <cmn32480> thigns are pretty good
[01:55:18] <Bytram> havehte day off?
[01:55:34] <cmn32480> the bolts holding my exhaust manifold to the midpipe came out without breaking
[01:55:44] <cmn32480> that was a big plus
[01:55:57] <Bytram> lubricants++
[01:55:57] <Bender> karma - lubricants: 1
[01:56:02] <Bytram> =)
[01:56:04] <cmn32480> lol
[01:56:13] <cmn32480> you can never have too much penetrating lubricant
[01:56:19] <Bytram> nodnod
[01:56:24] <Bytram> PB Blaster?
[01:56:46] <cmn32480> actually used Freeze Off from CRC
[01:57:04] <Bytram> Cyclic Redundancy Check
[01:57:06] <Bytram> ?
[01:57:08] <cmn32480> cools the bolt, causing it to shrink a minute amount and that allows the lubericant in'
[01:57:19] <Bytram> ahhh. cool!
[01:57:20] <cmn32480> CRC is a company that makes lubricants
[01:57:27] <Bytram> just joshing ya
[01:57:37] <cmn32480> I'm not Josh... I'm cmn32480
[01:57:49] <Bytram> way back when I was in college, CRC was THE name for reference books
[01:58:02] <cmn32480> obviously they changed businesses
[01:58:08] <cmn32480> after the discovery of oil
[01:58:17] <Bytram> tables after tables of everything from logarithms to temperature vs volume and thelike
[01:58:42] <Bytram> "I need to check my CRC' was a thing much like "I need to Google it" is now.
[01:59:23] <cmn32480> heh
[01:59:26] <cmn32480> but it was a good day
[01:59:33] <cmn32480> got the grass cut (after 3 weeks of not)
[01:59:40] <cmn32480> got the new alternator in
[01:59:48] <cmn32480> got the exhaust pipe off
[01:59:52] <Bytram> so glad to hear it; some3times it is nice to have a few things work as anticipated and feel some genuine success for one's efforts
[02:00:04] <cmn32480> yeah
[02:00:26] <Bytram> me is on vacation this coming week
[02:00:38] <cmn32480> I was totally expecting to have the bolts break off and haave to drill adn tap
[02:00:38] <Bytram> feel a need to catch up on things around my apartment
[02:00:47] <Bytram> and also to get *away* from it, too.
[02:00:57] <Bytram> get a real change of scenery
[02:01:09] * Deucalion puts Bytram in his safe space and tucks in the blankie
[02:01:29] <cmn32480> I think bytram is more referring to going camping...
[02:01:33] <cmn32480> or perhaps the beach
[02:01:46] * Bytram nestles in and then asks for milk and a cookie
[02:01:56] <Bytram> more like the beach
[02:01:59] * cmn32480 passes out milk and cookies
[02:02:08] <Bytram> there was a scheduling conflict -- I was originally supposed to go this week
[02:02:17] <Bytram> ended up postposing mine for a week
[02:02:32] <cmn32480> yer a good man Charlie Brown
[02:02:36] <Bytram> ended up getting the short end of tides/beach
[02:02:48] <Bytram> ocean water gets up to low 60s round here
[02:02:57] * cmn32480 pictures Bytram in a Speedo... and vomits
[02:03:01] <Bytram> but, if you can catch a high tide around, say, 4pm
[02:03:03] <Deucalion> "scheduling conflict" AKA - someone else fucked up at your expense / convenience and hid it in a convenient term..... bastids.
[02:03:27] <Bytram> the sand gets baked all day during low tide, and the ocean water returning gets warmed up to an almost tolerable low 70s
[02:03:55] <Bytram> nah, I signed up for the week, but did not put in on the community calendar. was waiting
[02:03:58] <Bytram> for it to get approved,
[02:04:07] <Bytram> someone with more seniority did not know I signedup
[02:04:10] <cmn32480> and somebody else grabbed it up
[02:04:13] <Bytram> so signed up for the same week
[02:04:26] <Bytram> I told my manager and she submitted a request to change the other worker's request
[02:04:30] <Bytram> but it didn';t get done
[02:04:39] <Bytram> foundout when the schedules came out.
[02:05:04] <Deucalion> c'est la vie it seems
[02:05:06] <Bytram> so, there was a bit of scrambling, not ideal, but I still get a week off with pay
[02:05:11] <Bytram> and in my book that is a good thing
[02:05:15] <cmn32480> yep
[02:05:22] <Bytram> don't need to have it*ALL* in order to have a rest
[02:05:22] <cmn32480> PTO is good
[02:05:46] <Deucalion> in my book - paid leave is expected. Must be a commie Euro thing or something :D
[02:05:47] <Bytram> Power Take Off? I've seen those on tractors!
