[02:17:11] <Bytram> thas good
[02:17:14] <cmn32480> so it is bearable
[02:17:27] <cmn32480> you still sweat... but at least some of it evaporates
[02:17:27] <Bytram> btw, I think chrom.s is over in #Soylent
[02:17:32] <Bytram> that helps
[02:17:43] <cmn32480> i know.... he made some comment about me coming in goats
[02:18:00] <Bytram> that's no way to talk about a partner
[02:18:06] <Bytram> sex workers
[02:18:42] <cmn32480> so anyway...
[02:18:53] * cmn32480 changes the topic to anything but the current topic
[02:18:59] <Bytram> no, I meant I was working on the sex workers story
[02:19:03] <Bytram> for the site
[02:19:08] <cmn32480> oh
[02:19:21] <Bytram> that was a... pregnant pause!
[02:19:24] <cmn32480> the first time I read that it was "looking for sex workers for the site"
[02:19:35] <cmn32480> and I was very confused... and a little excited
[02:20:01] <Bytram> way too many ways to put my foot in my mouth

[02:28:01] <Bytram> glad to hear it... out at 849
[02:28:15] <Bytram> 2nding germany
[02:28:28] <cmn32480> eding flux capatccitor
[02:28:40] <Bytram> be sure to chekc those links
[02:28:52] <Bytram> I was starting to lose focus on that story towards the end
[02:29:00] <cmn32480> 10-4
[02:29:14] * cmn32480 watches for an intentional goatse
[02:29:40] <Bytram> 2nding flailing phone
[02:30:53] <cmn32480> from the they've-gone-plaid dept
[02:31:04] <Bytram> PERFECT!
[02:31:18] <Bytram> umm
[02:31:27] <Bytram> wait a minute... that would be for Tesla...
[02:31:35] <Bytram> that story was about Jonny's ummm
[02:31:43] <Bytram> back-to-the-future-reference
[02:31:57] <Bytram> different genre there
[02:32:00] <cmn32480> but ludicrous mode is a Spaceballs reference
[02:32:31] <Bytram> Flux Capacitor ... isn;t that from back to the future?
[02:32:39] <cmn32480> yes
[02:32:47] <cmn32480> but Tesla Ludicrous Mode is Spaceballs
[02:32:52] <cmn32480> yo are mixing your movies
[02:33:11] <Bytram> yes, but the Tesla reference is 2ndary to the story
[02:33:25] <Bytram> the primary thing is that a guy got a 40+ year old underpowered car
[02:33:32] <Bytram> to break the world electirc car record
[02:33:42] <Bytram> and named it the Flux Capacitor
[02:33:44] * cmn32480 continues reading to figure this out the correct way
[02:33:52] <Bytram> so, to me, it needs a B@TF refewrence
[02:34:37] <Bytram> B2TF
[02:34:54] <Bytram> next up electric hoverboard?
[02:35:22] <Bytram> how about just:

[14:22:19] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480 - I've just deconflicted our stories :)
[14:22:19] * Bytram waves "Hi!" to janrinok
[14:22:21] * exec analiciously pours a rusty trombone of nerd-celebrity nudes for cmn32480
[14:22:24] <Bytram> ~gday janrinok
[14:22:26] * exec covertly internalizes an overflowing chest of tea in janrinok
[14:22:33] <janrinok> ~gday Bytram - how goes your vacation?
[14:22:35] * exec sardonically reticulates a chest of an insult for Bytram
[14:23:14] <Bytram> I'm torn between doing nothing, and wanting to get out of the apartment and *doing* something, like go to the beach, groceries, etc. inertia is strongly active atm
[14:23:40] <janrinok> can being inactive be active? But I know what you mean...
[14:24:35] <janrinok> I take it that the wx is suitable for the beach?
[14:25:04] <Bytram> ummm, wx? WorkStation?
[14:25:24] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[14:25:26] * exec covertly fires a bowl of spinning rust at janrinok
[14:25:28] <Bytram> would not dare think of bringing lappy to beach .. sand & PCs == not good
[14:25:28] <cmn32480> thanks for fixing my screw up
[14:25:52] <janrinok> cmn - we just posted at the same time. No-one to blame
[14:30:15] <janrinok> Bytram, how about taking a book to the beach, with a packed meal, and just reading/chilling as you feel
[14:30:52] <cmn32480> if he goes in the water it'll be freezing not chilling
[14:30:55] <Bytram> thought has crossed my mind... should get myself started right now.
[14:31:20] <Bytram> though, might bebetter to get errands behind me todya, and then I can really relax tomorrow
[14:31:31] <janrinok> I guess the US version of cold water and the European differ by some 5-10 degrees C
[14:31:53] <janrinok> Bytram used to be indecisive, but now he's not so sure
[14:31:56] <Bytram> water temp at a nearby beach is currently 67 F...
[14:32:08] <Bytram> or about 19 C
[14:32:16] <Bytram> which is unusually warm for this area
[14:32:18] <janrinok> good grief - we would have to add cold water to that to make it bearable
[14:32:38] <cmn32480> janrinok is part polar bear after all
[14:32:42] <Bytram> why, what is 'normal' for you
[14:33:27] <Bytram> our typical summer ocean water temp is more like 60-63F... 15-17 C
[14:33:34] <janrinok> Around the UK it is quite a bit lower than that. The Med is reasonably warm - to your standards anyway.
[14:33:54] * cmn32480 wants bath water when going to the beach
[14:33:57] * Bytram is rather, umm, 'svelte' and lacks much in the way of natural insulation
[14:34:00] <cmn32480> minus the soap of course
[14:34:04] <Bytram> lol
[14:34:44] <janrinok> uk sea temps: Aberdeen 55F, Blackpool 62F Falmouth 64F
[14:34:59] <Bytram> hmmm, I think I may have fdound a new thing for exec to play with: https://www.watertemperature.net
[14:35:01] <exec> └─ 13Old Orchard water temperature: Current water temp in old orchard
[14:35:17] <janrinok> ... and that is after or during this 'heatwave'
[14:35:27] <Bytram> there's a text-entry field for specifying a difrernt location
[14:35:36] <Bytram> heat wave ain't hit us yet
[14:35:42] <Bytram> brb, afk
[14:36:14] <janrinok> today has clouded over with a corresponding fall in temp, hopefully some showers soon to break the unpleasant feel.
[14:38:18] <cmn32480> we are cooler... but it is going to get HOT toward the end of the week again.
[14:38:33] <cmn32480> ~convert 97 F C
[14:38:34] <exec> 0397°F = 36.111°C
[14:39:30] <janrinok> my oven has to be switched on the get temperatures like that ....
[14:40:55] * cmn32480 switches on janrinoks oven and sticks his head inside
[14:42:00] * janrinok decides that was a very unfriendly move, but elects to wait until the room has reached a comfortable temperature before switching the oven back off again...
[14:42:55] * cmn32480 wonders who he meant by "his" in the previous statement
[14:45:04] * janrinok wonders why it suddenly went dark
[14:46:40] * cmn32480 turns on the lights
[14:47:08] * Bytram waits for the ka-boom
[14:47:25] * cmn32480 notes that it is an electric oven
[14:48:03] * Bytram reconsiders
[14:48:34] * Bytram comes up empty
[14:48:43] * janrinok notes that it is definitely not a gas oven
[14:49:42] * cmn32480 notes that his coffee is as cold as bytram's ocean
[14:49:47] * Bytram is trying to figure in a reference to an electric boogaloo
[14:50:01] <janrinok> lol
[14:50:23] <cmn32480> hmmmm an electric bogger loo...
[14:50:32] <cmn32480> a nose picking toilet woudl be interesting
[14:50:49] <cmn32480> thouhg I think that is the wrogn end
[14:51:19] <janrinok> I feel as though I am entering an alternative universe, one in which I do not belong and understand very little
[14:51:58] <janrinok> brb afk
[14:55:19] <Bytram> nodnod
[14:55:39] * Bytram decides it is time to get started on his day and hits the showers.
[14:55:43] <Bytram> see ya'all laters!
[14:55:54] <cmn32480> ~gday bytram
[14:55:56] * exec scientifically sodomizes a terabyte of tumbleweeds with bytram
[14:56:00] <Bytram> ~gday cmn32480
[14:56:02] * exec casually inserts a screenshot of void pointers into cmn32480
[14:56:09] * Bytram loses on that one
[15:14:41] <janrinok> typical - turn my back for 15 minutes and Bytram leaves!
[15:14:54] <cmn32480> he was bored w/o you
[15:15:26] <cmn32480> 23 minutes.. but who's counting
[15:15:35] <Bytram> nah, got distracted when I looked at the story queue
[15:15:45] <Bytram> btw, the story about the trump ghostwriter...
[15:15:58] <Bytram> is interesting, and brings up things I did not know
[15:15:58] <janrinok> I get disheartened by the queue, but rarely distracted
[15:16:07] <Bytram> but don't know if it is ';right' for our site.
[15:17:02] <janrinok> I don't think it is - feel free to delete it
[15:18:37] <Bytram> looks like it was submitted, anonymously, by a user who has a nick... I wonder if the admin-user messaging can handle that?
[15:19:38] <janrinok> well we got it so I don't suppose that we will have any software problems with it
[15:20:27] <janrinok> by the way - is there a way of sending a rejection message now. Arthur has received a couple but they are only partially completed.
[15:21:35] <Bytram> yes, there is
[15:22:03] <Bytram> take a look at the trump submission
[15:22:46] <Bytram> okay, see the quoted text I added to the Editors' Notes area
[15:22:47] <Bytram> ?
[15:22:54] <janrinok> ah the quotes make all the difference?
[15:22:58] <Bytram> noope
[15:23:06] <Bytram> I'll let you do it...
[15:23:16] <Bytram> copy the quoted text to the clipboard
[15:23:38] <Bytram> and then, to the right of the [Delete] button you see a text-entry field "Reason"...
[15:23:41] <Bytram> paste the copied text there
[15:23:50] <Bytram> that is what will be sent to the user
[15:24:14] <Bytram> (putting it in the editor comments field saves a record of what was sent to the user for future reference, if needed)
[15:24:21] <janrinok> I do not have a Reason button!
[15:24:41] <janrinok> ah - looking in the wrong place
[15:24:43] <Bytram> not a button
[15:25:03] <Bytram> [Update] [Delete] Reason [text-entry-field]
[15:25:11] <janrinok> I don't normally delete them from this stage - I delete them on the list of subs
[15:26:00] <janrinok> deleted - I'll have to update the editor guide
[15:26:14] <Bytram> yep, can still delete 'em from there, but do not have a way to send a reason in that case
[15:26:14] <Bytram> generally, if it's an AC, exec, Arthur, etc, deleteing from subs page is still fine
[15:26:14] <Bytram> =)
[15:26:19] <Bytram> great idea!
[15:27:14] <Bytram> btw, I was thinking back to when I first became an editor and how you were just amazing in helping walk me through the various fields, their actions, and their meanings
[15:27:29] <janrinok> thanks for the compliment
[15:27:31] <Bytram> sometimes I forget how awkward the navigation can be
[15:27:40] <Bytram> janrinok++
[15:27:40] <Bender> karma - janrinok: 40
[15:27:51] <janrinok> I must have been away when that update was intro'd
[15:28:06] <Bytram> now that I've done it so many times, it's just clicky click type type click
[15:28:35] <Bytram> and a few scrolls in there, too.
[15:28:35] <Bytram> =)
[15:28:53] <Bytram> that's part of the reason why I walked you through actually doing it -- followed your lead in how you taught *me* !!
[15:29:45] <janrinok> Someone commented the other day that they had received a rejection but that it was meaningless. It appears that if you use the delete button on that page but _don't_ give a reason, it provides a top and tail but of course nothing of any use to the submitter
[15:30:09] <Bytram> nod nod; please note
[15:30:26] <janrinok> I would suggest that we disable that Delete button until the Reason field has some content
[15:30:29] <Bytram> there is a coding change pending that changes that from a small text-entry field, into a full-sized text-entry window; much
[15:30:50] <Bytram> like we have for the story fields
[15:31:08] <Bytram> IIRC, it should be up on dev, already
[15:31:15] <Bytram> afk, brb

[18:19:10] <janrinok> back in time to have to go soon :)
[18:19:52] <cmn32480> wish I had to go soon
[18:20:30] <janrinok> you need to stay at work to earn money, so that you can pay your taxes, to support other retired people like me but in your own country...
[18:20:54] <cmn32480> :-p
[18:22:03] <janrinok> brevity and wit in 3 characters - I like that
[18:32:18] <cmn32480> i try
[18:32:24] <cmn32480> not hard, but I try
[18:32:47] <janrinok> how's the AC today?
[18:33:39] <cmn32480> mine is fine
[18:33:45] <cmn32480> down the hall ./.. still hot
[18:33:54] <cmn32480> can you beat up the guys in the other channel?
[18:34:13] <janrinok> have you tried selling seats in your office for $10/15mins ?
[18:35:02] <cmn32480> as what? a sweat lodge?
[18:36:15] <janrinok> hey, a profit is still a profit. You have to be prepared to make compromises if you want to be a gadzillionaire
[18:36:17] <cmn32480> just got off the phone wiht a customer... they are opening a new 1.3 million square foot building
[18:36:23] <cmn32480> have ordered 600 access poitns for it
[18:36:37] <cmn32480> that averages about 2100sqft/access point
[18:36:44] <janrinok> that's a lot of square feet - aren't normal feet acceptable any more?
[18:37:02] <janrinok> that job should keep you busy
[18:37:07] <cmn32480> normal coverage is 10k-15k sqft
[18:37:19] <cmn32480> they ordered 5 times as many AP"s as they need
[18:37:38] <janrinok> can never have too many APs
[18:41:48] <cmn32480> ummmmmmmmm
[18:41:49] <cmn32480> no
[18:41:54] <cmn32480> unless you are selling them
[18:41:56] <cmn32480> then you are correct
[18:42:10] <cmn32480> if you are supporting them,... that kind of density makes things go BOOM
[18:46:06] <janrinok> fit them all, but only power up 20% of them :)
[18:46:28] <cmn32480> that is approximately correct
[18:46:44] <cmn32480> but that is a lot of extra AP's. switchports, and cables...
[18:47:37] <janrinok> but you get paid, and cables etc don't need much maintenance. nor do the others if they are not powered up. I don't think I am cut out for honest business ...
[18:47:57] <cmn32480> well...
[18:48:08] <cmn32480> maybe you can fid a small website that will pay you to be an editor
[18:48:26] <janrinok> pay me? - I wish!
[18:48:53] <cmn32480> me too.... <sigh>
[18:50:55] <cmn32480> mkaybe you could get paid in abuse and general grumbling instead of that pesky cash
[18:51:16] <janrinok> in which case we have wealth beyond our wildest dreams
[18:51:57] <cmn32480> if I had a nickle for everytime I was abused on this site
[18:52:34] <janrinok> well, I would owe a few $ just on my own - damn, I might have posted them as Anon. Just blown that one ...
[18:53:27] * cmn32480 forgives janrinok out fo the emptyness of his wallet
[18:56:13] <janrinok> How often do you look at the IP hash to see if you can work out which Anon said what??
[19:00:18] <cmn32480> every day
[19:01:14] <janrinok> I am surprised at the number of people who think that they are anon when their posting record clearly shows their username
[19:04:22] <cmn32480> well.. having access to the hash info helps
[19:04:53] <janrinok> you'd think that they would at least change their IP though, or at least I would
