[00:47:28] <NCommander> Bytram, cmn32480: I hope we can get the article out tomorrow. I need to get some sleep. Today has been kinda meh
[00:49:04] <Bytram> yeah, I was astonished to see that it did not go out today... I've got it st for
[00:49:16] <Bytram> set for 1100(?)
[00:49:17] * Bytram goes tocheck
[00:49:42] <Bytram> is that time good for you, or would you prefer something else?
[00:49:55] <Bytram> 100 UTC
[00:49:58] <Bytram> bah!
[00:50:06] <Bytram> 1100 UTC.
[00:50:15] <Bytram> that's 0700 EDT
[00:50:21] <Bytram> ^^^ NCommander
[00:50:55] <NCommander> Bytram, possible later like 9-10-ish. 7EDT is kinda early.
[00:51:03] <Bytram> k
[00:51:12] <NCommander> Bytram, I think someone pushed it back a day because they thought you were still working on it
[00:52:05] <Bytram> that's my doing; saw we were running out of time. and then T. showed up to take over...
[00:52:14] <Bytram> so i figured when he had it up to snuff, tht he'd realease it then
[00:52:24] <Bytram> my bad for not communicating that. I apologize.
[00:53:00] <Bytram> do you have a preference for 9am or 10am? or... split the difference and go for 0930? =)
[00:53:52] <Bytram> sorry to hear your day has been kinda 'meh'
[00:56:49] <Bytram> okay, I'm picking 0930... feel free to change it if you'd prefer otherwise!!!
[01:09:35] <Bytram> nope, looks like 0900 EDT (1300 UTC) works better.
[02:31:46] <Bytram> someone please show this idea to crutchy/cmn32480:

[02:33:13] <exec> submission successful - https://soylentnews.org
[02:34:29] <Bytram> A man was interrogated by police for openly wearing a gun (he had a permit) but did not realize, as they were making up charges against the suspect, they were be recorded.
[02:34:52] <Bytram> Here's another line that I want added to the prologue of the story.
[02:35:45] <Bytram> Here is the last line I want to include (please notice how the next line flags that this is the end of the text to be included in the submission.)
[02:35:50] <Bytram> 'EOF'

[12:32:55] <Bytram|away> NCommander: Hiya! Am giving one more once-over to your story; quick question... should references to 'cdecl' be all lowercase or all uppercase? We've got both in the story. =)
[12:34:59] <Bytram|away> I'm going to go with all-lower-case if I don't hear back... seems to be inconsistent usage on the 'net. (why am I not surprised?) =)
[12:35:46] <NCommander> Bytram|away, I'm actually not sure. Even compilers are inconsistent. Windows API uses CDECL, GCC uses __cdecl -_-;
[12:35:55] <Bytram|away> zactly!
[12:35:57] <NCommander> (STDCALL/__stdcall as well)
[12:36:05] <Bytram|away> yep, saw that too!
[12:36:20] <Bytram|away> should we be consistent with the net and not care, either? ;)
[12:36:20] <Bytram|away> LOL!
[12:36:43] <Bytram|away> iow do you have any preference one way or the other?
[12:37:22] <NCommander> Bytram|away, lower case in article text, leave the code ones as is
[12:37:52] <Bytram|away> makes sense to me... got it!
[12:40:46] <Bytram|away> hmmm, think we are missing a negation somewhere in here?
[12:40:46] <Bytram|away> While TSRs do work in DOSbox, DOSbox has some unusual quirks with its environment that make it 100% accurate to actual DOS (for example, all interrupts have an installed default handler; FreeDOS at least does not do this).
[12:41:30] <Bytram|away> that fail to make it 100% accurate ???
[12:49:01] <chromas> I agree. Seems like it should be "not 100% accurate"
[12:49:20] <Bytram|away> thanks
[12:49:51] <Bytram|away> quick question: COM (as in fdisk.com) ... does that stand for something?
[12:52:07] <Bytram|away> afk brb
[12:54:56] <Bytram|away> back
[12:54:59] * Bytram|away clicks preview
[12:55:49] * Bytram|away scans and sees no obvious formatting issues
[12:55:53] * Bytram|away clicks update
[12:55:55] <chromas> It looks like there are several ideas of what it stood for, but my guess is COMmand. (unless nCOMmander (ping) has better knowledge of it)
[12:56:02] <Bytram|away> LOL!
[12:56:35] <Bytram|away> thanks for that... not gonna worry about it at this point... gotta leave something for the community to find, right? =)
[12:56:44] <Bytram|away> ok, gtg and get ready for work.
[12:56:48] <NCommander> COM = COMmand I think. It's from CP/M and denotes a binary format as well
[12:56:55] <chromas> Well, we need something to bitch about
[12:56:56] <NCommander> (EXE = EXEcutable)
[12:57:34] <Bytram|away> seems to match what I recall.
[12:57:38] <Bytram|away> was long time ago!
[12:58:09] <Bytram|away> time to clean up for work... will pokje my nose in before Ileave.
[12:58:15] <Bytram|away> nograb
[13:09:58] <Bytram|away> ok, gtg .... have a great day everyone!
[13:10:34] <Bytram|away> NCommander: forgot to mention -- article is impressive! Really like how you explained things at a consistent level -- that is hard to do! WELL DONE!
