[01:05:35] <SirFinkus> [18:02:58] <JNCF> Yo, I just submitted an article but immediately realised I had written something mind-numbingly incorrect in it. I wrote "Geobacter naturally forms nanowires 60,000 times smaller than a human hair". According to the abstract of the paywalled journal article, the researchers actually cut the size of the nanowires in half (and the final size is clearly what the linked ONR press release is refering to when it
[01:05:35] <SirFinkus> gives the 60,000 figure). The whole
[01:05:35] <SirFinkus> [18:03:14] <JNCF> hing like "The bacteria Geobacter naturally forms nanowires 30,000 times smaller than a human hair, but genetic modification sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) has made them 2,000 times more electrically conductive and half as wide." Make sure to preserve the link. Thanks, editors. Original submission is here: https://soylentnews.org

[03:02:20] <Bytram> nobarg
[03:02:29] <Bytram> I see an unclosed <a
[03:03:23] <cmn32480> ach
[03:03:29] <cmn32480> fifty lashes w/ a wet noodle
[03:03:30] <Bytram> actually the <a >...</a> was correct, but the <a also had: rel="noopener"
[03:03:39] <Bytram> so: <a href="..." rel="noopener">
[03:03:47] * cmn32480 is also half listening to the required cub scout training
[03:04:12] * cmn32480 notes that if people fail this they must be complete morons
[03:04:28] <Bytram> or, maybe, incomplete morons?
[03:04:37] <cmn32480> plausible
[03:04:42] <Bytram> there were 4 <a...> phrases that contained rel="noopener"
[03:05:09] <cmn32480> that's what I get for copying the source from a page w/ ads that I don't see.. and half listenign to the yammering of the cub scout training
[03:05:18] <Bytram> I dunno why my broswer pukes on those
[03:05:22] <cmn32480> so 4 screw-ups *50 lashes each....
[03:05:34] <cmn32480> equals 200 lashes w/ a wet noodle...
[03:05:52] <Bytram> 200 lashes with a wet noodle ==> spaghetti for dinner
[03:05:52] <Bytram> =)
[03:06:12] * cmn32480 hopes the noodle is not one of those that can be used as tug boat line...
[03:07:27] <Bytram> toy tug boat, maybe?

[17:44:50] <n1> trying a new supplier of hardware for a work project, and they're being just as useless as all the others
[17:45:05] <n1> i'm sick of distributors.
[17:45:34] <CoolHand> dirty bastages..
[17:46:58] <n1> had a second look at a quote they sent through, one letter is incorrect on an item code and now they're claiming they don't stock the item i originally asked for
[17:47:22] <n1> even though it's on their website showing they have over 50 in stock...
[18:00:18] <CoolHand> yeah, I'm glad I don't have to deal with distributors... bleh
[18:04:43] <n1> amended quote has more expensive option... and i've already given a price to my client ¬_¬ ... round we go again on monday i guess.
