[00:54:31] <takyon_> can you hear me now
[00:56:33] <Deucalion> pardon?
[00:57:32] <takyon_> net connection got really slow
[00:58:39] <Deucalion> prolly being routed via Langley or somesuch :D
[00:58:59] <takyon_> better send them a note via IRC
[01:01:36] <Deucalion> that's bound to work
[01:06:37] <cmn32480> It woudla gone via Ft. Meade
[01:11:45] <Deucalion> what do I know... other side of the pond to me.... just seemed like a suitably tinfoil hatty name to throw out there
[01:12:05] <cmn32480> Langley is the CIA
[01:12:13] <cmn32480> but very suitable
[01:12:20] <cmn32480> Ft. Meade is NSA...
[01:12:27] <cmn32480> also very suitable...

[13:29:13] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[13:48:59] <Bytram> janrinok: would appreciate your taking a look at this story I just put in the queue: https://soylentnews.org
[13:49:00] <DiversityInitiative> ^ 03Error ( https://soylentnews.org )
[13:49:23] <janrinok> looking
[13:49:28] <Bytram> I could be swayed to not run it, or to schedule it for a more 'visible' time like 0800 EDT... your thoughts?
[13:50:38] <Bytram> I've seen a little back-and-forth on this very thing in the comments, I'm thinking it's best to meet it square on than let it simmer and then boil?
[13:50:50] <janrinok> I must confess that I skipped this one - intentionally :)
[13:51:16] <Bytram> fools jump in where angels fear to tread!
[13:51:53] <janrinok> It is a bit confusing which parts are the thoughts of pedantic_peter, and where the other quoted parts are taken from. I assumed from /., which is why I side-stepped it.
[13:52:15] <Bytram> hmmm?
[13:52:20] * Bytram looks again
[13:53:07] <Bytram> I canmake it clearer... just a minute
[13:54:34] <janrinok> it seems to be all from our site, but the links did not make that immediately apparent to me. How about an intro 'A commenter suggested the following in an earlier discussion...' It is so off-topic in that thread I never bothered to read it before
[13:55:48] <Bytram> I get the gist of the idea, but your proposed wording doesn't quite do it for me, and I can't put my finger on it.
[13:56:33] <janrinok> well, it was only a poorly thought out suggestion, I would never suggest cutting and pasting it!
[13:56:36] <Bytram> I made some changes... take a look, now.
[13:56:41] <janrinok> looking
[13:56:51] * Bytram is too much of a literalist
[13:58:59] <janrinok> well, I'll 2nd it if you want but it still doesn't excite me too much. And my views on the subject matter are fairly fixed - most threads wander so much that I think useful subjects are essential...
[13:59:34] <Bytram> agreed, but in the haste to post a reply, all too often the subject does not keep up with the conversation. :/
[14:01:04] <janrinok> that's very true - I wondering whether I am being swayed by the original links to the story topic. The new story (this story) should be (IMHO) completely separated from the earlier one 'What Language etc'
[14:01:55] <Bytram> good point...
[14:02:33] * Bytram wondrs if, maybe, the actual links should be movd out of the text and referenced like footnotes?
[14:03:44] <janrinok> it increases the size of the editing task (but not by a huge amount) but it then comes out as a straight forward question of the community. But, tbh, I have not seen any complaints so we might be making a rod for our backs, so to speak
[14:03:45] <Bytram> BTW, I tried to split off the 'history lesson' from the story's query by starting a new <p>; did that help?
[14:04:21] <Bytram> I've seen this back-and-forth on more than one occasion.... not frequent, but still recurring.
[14:04:26] <janrinok> yep, that is much clearer
[14:04:32] <Bytram> mare sea!
[14:05:24] <Bytram> Okay, I'm liking the footnotes idea more and more...
[14:05:25] <Bytram> brb
[14:05:25] <janrinok> run it - let's see what we get back
[14:06:14] <janrinok> do people actually say 'post-social media web' in the real-world?
[14:06:30] <janrinok> I'm getting old ....
[14:06:34] <janrinok> ... and grumpy
[14:06:40] <janrinok> ;)
[14:06:40] <Bytram> maybe only the anti-social media cognoscenti? ;)
[14:07:31] <janrinok> I must have slept through the pre-social media and social media phases, and slipped straight into the post-social media
[14:08:17] <janrinok> people who use such terminology in the real world should receive a firm slap on the back of the head.
[14:08:37] <Bytram> yep
[14:10:37] <janrinok> gosh my grumpy old man (GOM) is definitely coming out to play today
[14:11:57] <janrinok> Bytram, do you want me to 2nd that, or are you still mulling it over?
[14:12:08] <Bytram> newrly done
[14:13:39] <janrinok> in that case, I'm 'newrly' ready to 2nd it
[14:14:14] <Bytram> okay, changed the release date/time and updated prose. have at it! (/me is gonna take a break)
[14:14:35] <janrinok> rest - you are still my hero
[14:14:52] <Bytram> pshaw! *YOU* are *my* hero!
[14:15:03] <Bytram> afk; biab
[14:17:26] <janrinok> Bytram, I might be mis-reading it, but how can SN have a legacy going back to SN?
[14:20:18] <janrinok> I haven't correct it because it might be me being a numpty
[14:20:28] <janrinok> corrected*
[14:21:59] * Bytram looks again
[14:22:28] <Bytram> ahhh, my bad. great catch.
[14:23:28] <Bytram> SoylentNews has a long legacy going back to Chips & Dips, the predecessor site to Slashdot and from whose code SoylentNews was forked.
[14:23:38] <Bytram> is that better?
[14:24:28] <janrinok> it hasn't changed here yet
[14:25:00] <Bytram> I haven't saved it yet; was wondering if that rewording was acceptable before I hit save.
[14:25:25] <janrinok> sry - me being thick! Yep, that line looks good :)
[14:25:37] <Bytram> SoylentNews has a long legacy going back to Chips & Dips, the predecessor site to Slashdot (from whose code SoylentNews was forked).
[14:25:48] <Bytram> I'm liking thatmuch better. you?
[14:26:00] <janrinok> yep - that's good
[14:26:13] * Bytram clicks update
[14:26:38] <Bytram> 2nding france and germany
[14:27:17] <janrinok> Arthur's now up to 196 possible stories so far today
[14:27:35] <janrinok> It's probably a good job that it isn't fully automated....
[14:28:03] <Bytram> yowza! that would be just a bit much to chew through!
[14:28:34] <janrinok> 30-odd dupes or updates, but at least 50% of the remainder are worth submitting
