[00:28:19] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[00:29:03] <Bytram> CoolHand: YIKES! I *saw* that when I first read it and completely dropped the ball on that one. Good catch! THANKS!
[00:29:28] <Bytram> heads up, there may be more to come... am trying to fill the story queue and am so ready for bed right now.
[00:32:00] <Deucalion> evening and g'night Bytram... off to the land of nod myself. Sleep well.
[00:32:41] <Bytram> Deucalion: hola! Hope the new job has quieted down for ya. sleep well, my friend.

[01:06:23] <Bytram> cmn32480: about this submission: https://soylentnews.org
[01:06:23] <DiversityInitiative> ^✓ 03SN Submission by martyb: Some Advice for How To Think, and Some Personal Memories
[01:06:39] <cmn32480> hmmm?
[01:06:46] <Bytram> I don't like the title, but it was what the linked blog article had. Maybe
[01:06:56] <Bytram> change it to 'Thoughts on Thinking'
[01:07:14] <Bytram> if not, there's been no nibbles for 2 weeks, bin it.
[01:07:27] * Bytram submitted it.
[01:07:38] <cmn32480> I'll take a poke at it tonight... if my servers come back on line in good working order
[01:08:06] <cmn32480> currently installing windows updates.... <cringe>
[01:08:15] <Bytram> here's wishing you the best of luck on that one!
[01:08:29] <Bytram> which version of windows?
[01:09:04] <Bytram> FYI: http://www.infoworld.com
[01:09:05] <DiversityInitiative> ^ 03Microsoft changes Win7/8.1 updates, pushes even harder for Windows 10 | InfoWorld
[01:09:15] <cmn32480> 2008R2
[01:09:27] <cmn32480> but they are my Exchange and SQLServer servers
[01:09:43] <Bytram> yep, you are in the line of fire
[01:09:55] <Bytram> see: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com
[01:09:57] <DiversityInitiative> ^ 03Further simplifying servicing models for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 ? Windows for IT Pros
[01:10:04] <cmn32480> I saw
[01:10:12] <cmn32480> same update model as win 10
[01:10:40] <Bytram> well, shouldn't be too muchof a problem since MS has such a massive and skilled QA team... right? :P
[01:11:27] <cmn32480> yeah....
[01:11:39] <cmn32480> major changes to operating systems they wanna kill... that ain't too fishy
[01:12:55] <cmn32480> Well.. one bullet dodged... looks like Exchange is back up
[01:13:52] <Bytram> well, that and it appears that they are trying to force users into an all-or-nothing update model... you want the security fix, then you also have to install the bundled telemetry updates, too. (I may have read that wrong, but that is the sense that I got.)
[01:14:16] <cmn32480> that's about accurate
[01:15:13] * Bytram is gonna have to make a real stab to moving off windows, then.
[01:16:20] <cmn32480> yeah...
[01:16:27] <cmn32480> work isn't gonna allow that...
[01:16:59] <Bytram> I've got prolly 20+ years of customized batch programs and apps I've gathered over the years.
[01:17:43] <Bytram> IU suppose I should start with an 'easy' route and put Ubuntu on another box (if I had one) and try to use that as my new main system, and port things over as I needed them.
[01:17:44] <cmn32480> I think we all do
[01:18:06] <cmn32480> or just turn off Windows updates
[01:19:04] <Bytram> that'll be good for a month, maybe two, before I become a sitting target for zero days that get patches that I don't install
[01:19:23] <cmn32480> damned if you do and damned if you don't
[01:19:26] <Bytram> FYI, I just checked my main tools dir, oldest one I found there was dated: 08/11/1992 12:27 PM
[01:19:40] <cmn32480> prolly can trash much of that
[01:20:50] <Bytram> in some cases, yes. In others, it's tested code that has held up under repeated use.
[01:20:51] <Bytram> 05/27/1993 07:52 PM 1,967 combo.awk
[01:22:04] <Bytram> when invoked by a batch wrapper program, spits one combinations of values... e.g. "COMBO 2 a b c" would output all combinations of 3 objects ('a', 'b', and 'c') taken 2 at a time.

[02:44:06] <Bytram> btw, worth noting we are approaching the end of the 'silly season' where many/most researchers in the (northern hemisphere, at least) take vacations, and schools are out, so genuine research articles are few and far between.
