[13:36:46] <cmn32480> all of them is not an acceptable answer
[13:37:04] <takyon_> and I had to correct the curly quotes in the headline because... adhd?

[13:37:19] <cmn32480> whatever floats yer boat

[13:37:31] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 115
[13:37:35] <Bytram> takyon_: much obliged
[13:37:47] <Bytram> what is wrong with using the curly quotes in the headline?
[13:37:48] <takyon_> also i put the colon in Ars Technica so it wouldn't appear on a separate line (at my res)
[13:38:09] <takyon_> Bytram: it ain't in the first 128 ASCII characters?
[13:38:37] * Bytram runs with all domains called out following links -- makes for some interesting reading, at times
[13:38:42] <takyon_> i've downgraded quotes for over a year now. my extensions downgrades them automatically in body text, not headlines apparently
[13:38:50] * Bytram is an old hand at EBCDIC

[13:39:05] <Bytram> =)
[13:39:06] <Bytram> hth
[13:40:06] <takyon_> updated
[13:40:31] <cmn32480> everythgin dealing w/ EBCDIC is old
[13:40:57] <takyon_> moving the other storeis up
[13:41:27] <takyon_> moved
[13:41:30] <Bytram> yep, but though EBCDIC may be old, it tends to be on boxes that just. keep. running. and running...

[13:42:28] <cmn32480> bytram - that is why it is one of those thigns that jsut won't freaking die and needs to be nuked form orbit
[13:43:15] <Bytram> why? If it is not broken, why fix it? If you had a car that had a bulletproof engine and no rust and was all paid for, why not hold on to it?
[13:44:02] <chromas> how many gallons per mile does it get?
