[11:39:35] <CoolHand> for some reason the Art T K story at 10:30 still has a lot of Art's original header.. I assume that wasn't intentional and I'm going to wipe it out while 2nd'ing.. If I'm ASSUME wrong, then someone can pull it back from original submission link..
[11:39:55] <CoolHand> that's the "Tesla Envy" story..
[11:42:30] <CoolHand> still probably too much of the story quoted in it for my taste, but I'll leave that alone unless someone else agrees..

[18:19:29] <janrinok> OK, after several days I am now back on IRC, but no ZNC yet.
[18:19:42] <cmn32480> says the porblem child
[18:19:53] <janrinok> I am a porblem?
[18:20:13] <janrinok> did you get my email?
[18:20:17] <cmn32480> you are the least of my porblems
[18:20:29] <janrinok> I am the BEST of porblems!
[18:20:40] * cmn32480 goes to look at his email
[18:20:57] * janrinok reckons that will be a 'No' then ...
[18:21:32] <cmn32480> the last email I have from you is from 6/14/2016
[18:21:45] * cmn32480 check his deleted items to be sure
[18:21:56] <janrinok> Sent one on Sunday to your soylentnews addy
[18:22:20] <janrinok> perhaps Monday - it all seems so long ago now
[18:22:37] <cmn32480> are you noreply@soylentnews.org?
[18:22:46] <janrinok> I wasn't
[18:22:51] <cmn32480> ach! I DID get the emails for the subscription expiring!
[18:22:57] <cmn32480> sonofabitch
[18:23:04] <janrinok> lol
[18:23:12] <janrinok> now who is porblem?
[18:24:00] <cmn32480> I've always been a porblem
[18:24:06] <cmn32480> ask my Mother she'll tell you
[18:24:14] <cmn32480> that I got it from my father
[18:24:21] <janrinok> I couldn't get on to IRC. And I couldn't get in touch with Deucalion/Juggs. I sent an email to you, marty and mrcool asking for someone to give Juggs a nudge. I'm back in touch
[18:24:30] <janrinok> with him now so no problem
[18:24:56] <cmn32480> oh
[18:24:59] <cmn32480> I'm sotrry
[18:25:11] <cmn32480> had I gotten the email.. I'da bounced juggs
[18:25:24] <cmn32480> it's like my favorite sport!
[18:25:57] <janrinok> well, 2 or 3 days later I've managed to get this bloody heap of crap back on IRC. Now I probably spend another week trying to get ZNC working again.
[18:26:17] <cmn32480> how is it that you can't keep your stuff connected?
[18:26:47] * cmn32480 suggest running a reliable OS like Windows to resolve the aforementioned issues
[18:27:00] <janrinok> Juggs has found a configuration problem that seems to explain it. Which is why I've done a complete re-install and we are clearing all the old settings and starting again
[18:27:31] * cmn32480 passes the Soylentnews broom and dustpan to help in the cleanup
[18:27:55] <cmn32480> I'd offer the company Bulldozer, but it doesn't swim
[18:28:15] <janrinok> The sub queue got a bit low on Monday :) \I subbed a few and posted a couple too
[18:28:34] <janrinok> If you promise to drive it, I'll accept anyway
[18:28:35] <cmn32480> it's appreciated
[18:28:54] <cmn32480> I was dealing with a badly sprained (maybe fractured) ankle
[18:29:04] <janrinok> fell off your bar stool?
[18:29:25] <cmn32480> dear god I wish... then it wouldn't have hurt
[18:30:14] <cmn32480> was hiking w/ the Cub Scouts, and hit a rut
[18:30:18] <janrinok> we've been v busy here too, with appointments etc. I've had to balance by workload a little
[18:30:29] <cmn32480> just wasn't paying attention to where I was going
[18:30:34] <janrinok> So, did they all laugh at you?
[18:30:38] <cmn32480> yep
[18:30:41] <cmn32480> they still are
[18:30:55] <janrinok> quite right - nice to see that you are teaching them well
[18:31:14] <cmn32480> the kids (other then my own) don't really know
[18:31:23] <cmn32480> the adults are the ones laughing
[18:31:55] <janrinok> even better, and they will remember longer and keep bringing it up at inopportune times
[18:32:44] <janrinok> how's the rest of the team?
[18:33:21] <cmn32480> pretty good near as I can tell
[18:33:31] <janrinok> and J and the kids?
[18:33:43] <cmn32480> also pretty good
[18:34:02] <cmn32480> 'cept my son who smacked my ankle on Monday night...
[18:34:11] <cmn32480> him I killed and ate as an example ot the others
[18:34:20] <janrinok> he was only seeing if it still hurt ....
[18:34:29] <cmn32480> it did
[18:34:34] <cmn32480> quite a bit
[18:34:36] <cmn32480> :-)
[18:34:50] <cmn32480> all in all, I'm the only one who is in ull health, so that's a good thing
[18:34:56] <cmn32480> How's things on your end?
[18:35:03] <cmn32480> S keeping you in line?
[18:36:59] <janrinok> sort of. As I said, we've been busy with hospital, opticians and other appointments, each of which is an adventure when it comes to loading S and the wheelchair and trundling off towards civilisation.
[18:37:19] <cmn32480> understandable
[18:37:34] <cmn32480> are the winches helping as much as you'd hoped?
[18:38:18] <janrinok> the appointment might take 30 mins to an hour, but it is at least half a day gone to make the journey etc. The winches are brilliant. Moving her around inside the house is easy-peasy now
[18:38:41] -!- aliasd [aliasd!~adee@ch10-153-616-662.pa.nsw.optusnet.com.au] has joined #editorial
[18:39:04] <cmn32480> that's excellent.
[18:39:11] <cmn32480> glad to hear that it was worth it
[18:39:49] <janrinok> The problem is things like opticians not being able to put a wheelchair in front of all the magic gizmos that they want to use. They want her to sit on a swivel chair and hold her chin in a certain position - and it ain't going to happen
[18:40:11] <cmn32480> yeah..
[18:40:35] <cmn32480> O can't say that surprises me much
[18:40:40] <janrinok> So it is back to the old fashioned way of measuring eyesight. The 30 minute appointment took best part of 90 minutes and the optician was late for her lunch
[18:41:33] * cmn32480 sheds a tear for the optician
[18:41:37] <janrinok> anyway, spectacles are now ready for collection, so back we go tomorrow and do it all again :)
[18:42:21] <cmn32480> just don't fall in the lens grinder
[18:42:30] <cmn32480> you'll make a spectacle of yourself!
[18:42:43] <janrinok> they don't like me touching things - they break off in my hand...
[18:43:30] * cmn32480 is losing his touch... that pun didn't even get a groan
[18:44:06] <janrinok> I'm still rolling around on the floor in agony - give me a minute or two
[18:45:36] <cmn32480> that makes me feel better
[18:46:41] <janrinok> OK, I'm back and I'll give you a second chance to improve your jokes...
[18:48:46] * cmn32480 makes no promises
[18:48:58] <janrinok> I'm just documenting Arthur and tidying up a few bits before I push it out
[18:49:41] <janrinok> about 3 minutes to find 190+ stories, all from our own logs
[18:50:18] <cmn32480> excellent
[18:51:39] <cmn32480> I'm fighting w/ a customer VPN that I had working, and now can't amke work
[18:52:28] <janrinok> doesn't sound too good, and not much that I can do from here to help (or do at all, if truth be told)
[18:52:32] * cmn32480 is frustrated
[18:52:57] <cmn32480> I'll have to call the customer and figure out what I screwed up
[18:53:44] <janrinok> is that a 'cap-in-hand' job, or do you have a good relationship with the customer?
[18:54:23] <cmn32480> I have a good relationship w/ him... but I hate it when stuff used to work and now doesn't
[18:54:44] <janrinok> after this weeks events on IRC, I can understand that!
[18:54:55] <cmn32480> yes
[18:54:59] <cmn32480> meeeee toooo
[18:56:03] <janrinok> Well, I've got to be going. Hopefully, I will be back on tomorrow or Friday
[18:56:13] <janrinok> give my best to J please
[18:56:18] <cmn32480> with a littl eluck, the IRC thing doens't blow up on you again
[18:56:23] <cmn32480> and mine to S
[18:56:34] <cmn32480> I hope she enjoys her new spec's
[18:56:41] <cmn32480> and feel free to share that joke w/ her
[18:57:32] <janrinok> will do, got to go, and you've got to make your phone call. The eyesight thing is quite worrying. MS is about muscle ceasing to work because of a failing nervous system. Her right eye has deteriorated a lot in the last 12 months.
[18:57:48] <cmn32480> oh dear
[18:58:25] <janrinok> anyway, we will see what tomorrow brings. Take care, and give my best to the guys
[18:58:30] <cmn32480> I shall
[18:58:31] <cmn32480> tgood seeing
[18:58:33] <cmn32480> you
[18:58:40] <janrinok> ditto - bye
