[17:47:32] * exec implicitly offers an exchange server of horny hornets to janrinok
[17:58:39] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480 - sry, I was distracted editing a story
[17:58:41] * exec single-handedly stuffs an animated gif of dianetics into cmn32480
[17:58:47] <cmn32480> is OK
[17:58:55] <cmn32480> that one was next on my list.
[17:59:54] <janrinok> how's things? We are all fading after a really hot day (34/35C)
[18:03:16] <cmn32480> bout the same
[18:03:20] <cmn32480> hotter tehn fire here too
[18:03:26] <janrinok> cmn32480, shall I leave the Leslie Jones story to you? The first link is corrupted
[18:03:30] <cmn32480> and part of the office is ahving AC issues
[18:03:37] <cmn32480> tooken care of
[18:03:57] <cmn32480> already fixed adn posted
[18:03:58] <janrinok> most places here - homes and businesses don't have aircon
[18:04:30] <cmn32480> oh my
[18:04:47] * cmn32480 hands janrinok a cold beer and an electric fan
[18:04:58] <janrinok> if we have these temperatures for more than a month, it would be very unusual.
[18:05:04] <cmn32480> jsut the older buildings? or is it a cultural thing?
[18:05:08] <janrinok> thanks for the beer :)
[18:05:32] <janrinok> cultural thing - we just don't bother about it.
[18:05:36] <cmn32480> ahh
[18:05:47] <cmn32480> perhaps a window style unit for S' room?
[18:05:59] <cmn32480> make thigns a little more bearable for her
[18:06:24] <janrinok> possibly, but it brings it's own prob
[18:06:37] <janrinok> problems for MS sufferers. Typical!
[18:06:42] <cmn32480> nothing is ever easy...
[18:06:59] <cmn32480> I'm sorry man.. I wish there was somethign that I could do to help
[18:07:23] <janrinok> thanks for the concern and support - it is more than enough
[18:08:10] * cmn32480 send JR another cold beer
[18:08:17] <janrinok> however, the temperatures are set to fall again by the weekend to a more manageable 25-28C
[18:08:59] <cmn32480> here too
[18:09:04] <cmn32480> and we are thankful
[18:09:20] <janrinok> good training for you for next month in Mexico?
[18:09:31] <cmn32480> heh
[18:09:33] <cmn32480> yeah
[18:10:09] <cmn32480> it's all good.. taht can still get cancelled on short notice...
[18:10:18] <cmn32480> keep your fingers crossed
[18:10:26] <janrinok> keeping fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you ...
[18:10:38] <cmn32480> FOR cancellation.. not against ti
[18:10:43] <cmn32480> just making sure
[18:10:51] * janrinok uncrosses eyes because he can't see the screen properly
[18:11:24] * cmn32480 jsut tried taht and now regres it
[18:11:52] <janrinok> hasn't improved your typing though, nor made it any worse
[18:12:17] <cmn32480> I have standards I'll ahve you know!
[18:12:28] <cmn32480> they aren't high... but I have them!
[18:12:35] <janrinok> true, pretty low like the rest of us, but you do have them
[18:13:40] <janrinok> feeling more positive today - actually found several stories that I was interested in on the site that had received some decent comments
[18:14:28] <cmn32480> that's good
[18:14:37] <cmn32480> I haven't had time to look around much
[18:15:37] <janrinok> well you haven't got the benefit of being a lazy retiree like myself
[18:15:58] <janrinok> ~day Bytram
[18:15:59] * Bytram waves at janrinok
[18:16:03] <Bytram> ~gday janrinok
[18:16:04] <janrinok> ~gday Bytram
[18:16:06] * exec disturbingly pesters a flask of unintended consequences with janrinok
[18:16:06] * exec diabolically drops a kilobyte of pascal on Bytram
[18:16:24] <Bytram> heh! I once worked at a job where I had to code in pascal!
[18:16:40] <chromas> Had to? Or got to? :)
[18:16:47] <janrinok> Is that an admission of failure or a claim to fame?
[18:16:56] <Bytram> yes!
[18:16:56] <cmn32480> ~gday bytram
[18:16:58] * exec brazenly offers a flask of bewb to bytram
[18:17:00] <cmn32480> ~gday chromas
[18:17:02] * exec single-candidly gives a quart of string cheese to chromas
[18:17:02] <Bytram> ~gday cmn32480
[18:17:04] * exec prematurely flings a pile of SQL injection at cmn32480

[18:17:13] <chromas> ~g'day Bytram
[18:17:15] * exec figuratively slides a zip archive of poofy onion cheese dip to chromas
[18:17:17] * exec seductively culturally appropriates a satchel of 4you are now breathing manually from cmn32480
[18:17:18] * exec dexterously twerks a dong of various cheeses for Bytram
[18:17:36] <janrinok> Oh my god - its a swarm of ~gdays
[18:17:38] <Bytram> mmmmm cheese!
[18:17:39] <chromas> I got two cheeses
[18:17:40] <Bytram> lol
[18:17:47] <janrinok> hi chromas
[18:17:59] <cmn32480> that was more work then exec has done in weeks!
[18:18:02] <chromas> 'sup janrinok
[18:18:07] <Bytram> janrinok: so good to 'see' you!! it's been much too long!
[18:18:23] <janrinok> you hang about in some very dubious places if you lurk on this chan ...
[18:18:50] <janrinok> Bytram, was just thinking the same. I've missed you by minutes when logging on recently
[18:19:22] <cmn32480> "missed" is a relative term....
[18:19:23] <Bytram> yep, same here... hoping your being here suggests things have gotten better on the home front?
[18:19:48] <janrinok> up and down, but overall in a positive direction.
[18:20:00] <Bytram> I noticed janrinok was editing a story and decided to pop in here instead of taking a nap -- vacations are a VERY good thing!
[18:20:20] <Bytram> good to hear... give S a hug for me, k?
[18:20:47] <janrinok> you would have done better to have a sleep - my editing is hardly a spectator sport - damn, some people don't even read the finished article!
[18:20:59] <Bytram> LOL!
[18:21:10] <janrinok> Best wishes passed to S - who thanks you all for them

[18:21:23] * Bytram taps exec on the shoulder
[18:21:52] <Bytram> janrinok: you're welcome
[18:22:35] <exec> #smake bytram
[18:22:35] * MrPlow smakes bytram upside the head with a SYNTAX ERROR ON LINE 12
[18:23:01] <janrinok> that's the very worst kind of error, I think
[18:23:02] <exec> that's what you get for tapping me on the shoulder!
[18:23:10] <Bytram> btw, it's not like I'm *trying* to catch up with janrinok's story posting prowess, is just that I happen to look when the queue runs low and push out a few stories to get us to the morning... adds up over time
[18:23:39] <Bytram> exec: s/bytram/cmn32480/
[18:23:41] <janrinok> you are closing the gap, another month and you will be in front
[18:23:46] <cmn32480> show of hands... who believes him?
[18:24:09] * janrinok searches for emoji indicating hands firmly down
[18:24:17] * cmn32480 hears crickets
[18:24:56] <Bytram> if you count their chirps and do some math, you can tell what the temperature is
[18:25:15] <janrinok> well, that's my contribution for the next 24 hours or so ...
[18:25:22] <janrinok> hot!
[18:25:54] <Bytram> for those who might be interested:
[18:25:54] <Bytram> To convert cricket chirps to degrees Fahrenheit, count number of chirps in 14 seconds, then add 40 to get temperature.
[18:25:54] <Bytram> Example: 30 chirps + 40 = 70° F
[18:25:54] <Bytram> To convert cricket chirps to degrees Celsius, count number of chirps in 25 seconds, divide by 3, then add 4 to get temperature.
[18:25:54] <Bytram> Example: 48 chirps /(divided by) 3 + 4 = 20° C

[18:29:29] <janrinok> Bytram, are you spending your vacation at home or traveling the world?
[18:29:40] <Bytram> home
[18:29:51] <Bytram> just stayed in the past two days and tried to unwind
[18:30:04] <janrinok> good to do something like that every now and then
[18:30:15] <Bytram> did what I wanted and didn't do what I didn't want
[18:30:23] <janrinok> brb - got to fetch that beer that cmn sent me by irc...
[18:30:48] <Bytram> now that I've slowed down a bit, have thoughts of going to the beach the next day or two
[18:31:01] <Bytram> hmmm, /me goes to check water temps
[18:31:45] <janrinok> doesn't matter what they say, when you first jump in the sea it always feels cold!
[18:32:58] <Bytram> ordinarily, I'd agree with you, but I found things to be quite comfortable when entering the ocean in Miami and jamaica
[18:33:14] <janrinok> ah, I obviously jump in the wrong sea then
[18:33:29] <Bytram> right sea, just the wrong end!
[18:33:48] <janrinok> no, I always jump feet first ....
[18:34:27] <Bytram> yep, best to keep your head up
[18:34:47] <Bytram> not as bad as I expected; current water temp is 67F
[18:35:05] <Bytram> that's 19C
[18:35:37] <janrinok> cool enough to make you breathe in a little
[18:35:58] <janrinok> ... but pleasant once you are in
[18:36:15] <Bytram> definitely! especially when the air temp is much higher
[18:41:20] * Bytram just noticed the time -- should make some lunmch; biab
[18:42:10] <janrinok> what are you having?
[18:42:42] <Bytram> I dunno; depends on what I find in the cupboards and fridge
[18:42:45] <Bytram> prolly something simple -- feeling lazy today
[18:42:54] <Bytram> afk biab
[18:43:26] <janrinok> make a bit extra - I'm feeling a bit peckish
[18:46:30] <cmn32480> useless people are a pain in the ass
[18:46:41] <janrinok> more customers?
[18:46:50] <cmn32480> the HVAC guys
[18:47:10] <cmn32480> they are heree.. but won't adjust the temps in the building w/o permission form the property management company
[18:47:23] <janrinok> ah, I suppose you need them, at least until they have fixed it
[18:47:34] <cmn32480> they need a boot in the ass
[18:48:38] <janrinok> On another IRC channel, I'm talking to some HVAC guys and you ought to hear what they are saying about some techie guy who wants the temperature adjusting ...
[18:50:37] <cmn32480> which channel... I'll internet muscle them!!!!!
[18:50:43] <janrinok> lol
[18:52:55] <cmn32480> I'dbe steamed if it wasn't so hot
[18:53:32] <janrinok> my cold beer is nice :)
[18:53:47] * cmn32480 is jealous
[18:54:05] * janrinok wonders why he sent it to me ...?
[18:54:41] <cmn32480> I'm not allowed to drink at work...
[18:54:46] <cmn32480> I'll get mine when I get home
[18:54:53] <cmn32480> but I do believe that you ahve earned it
[18:55:19] <janrinok> well, I didn't earn mine which made it taste so much better
[19:01:56] <cmn32480> I find that as aI grow older I have less tolerance for stupid
[19:02:07] <janrinok> should I leave now then?
[19:02:10] <cmn32480> or at elast I put on less of a filter to pretend I don't mind it so much
[19:02:24] <cmn32480> no.. but you might let the HVAC guys in the other channel know
[19:02:31] <janrinok> on it!
[19:02:39] <cmn32480> muchas gracias
[19:04:16] <janrinok> I cannot repeat what they asked me to tell you, but I don't think it was very polite. Have you got a bare high voltage cable that you can prod one of them with?
[19:04:23] <cmn32480> yes
[19:04:27] <janrinok> go for it
[19:04:41] * cmn32480 checks to make sure his UPS is functional first
[19:05:27] <cmn32480> damn... tripped a breaker...
[19:05:41] <cmn32480> probably the one for the A/C
[19:06:16] <janrinok> hang on - I'm not _certain_ they are the same guys. Ah, to hell with it, this is as good a way as any to find out
[19:08:32] <cmn32480> any screaming in the other channel?
[19:08:38] <cmn32480> or did they just go dark?
[19:09:07] <janrinok> there is no answer at the moment.... Do either of them look as though they are in any state to type?
[19:09:14] <cmn32480> nope
[19:09:18] <cmn32480> both are smoking
[19:09:32] <janrinok> that'll be the same guys then :)
[19:09:47] <cmn32480> probly
[19:09:55] <cmn32480> maybe they'll get the message now
[19:10:54] <janrinok> well, having encouraged a physical assault to take place, I suppose I'd better leave here for a while. Back on tomorrow if the feds don't catch up with me ...
[19:11:17] <cmn32480> hide safe
[19:11:24] <cmn32480> give S my best
[19:11:27] <cmn32480> stay cool
[19:11:55] <janrinok> sshh, I don't think they know that I am here. My best to J and hope it gets a bit cooler for you. Enjoy your beer later.
[19:12:01] <cmn32480> see you tomorrow.. if I'm not in jail

[19:12:31] <janrinok> we could end up in the same cell - although that is probably considered inhumane treatment

[19:13:13] <janrinok> bye Bytram - enjoy your meal.
