[13:05:39] <chromas> if only the log had access to da secret channel everyone knows about
[13:06:34] <cmn32480> Phoenix666 - there goes the neighborhood!
[13:07:01] <Phoenix666> ?
[13:07:18] <Phoenix666> how's it going?
[13:07:19] <cmn32480> well.. when you show up.. it usually means trouble
[13:07:23] <Phoenix666> :-)
[13:07:45] <Phoenix666> a couple days ago a speed bump appeared on the story submissions
[13:07:59] <cmn32480> which speed bump?
[13:08:02] <Phoenix666> it's something that happened before, about 6 months ago
[13:08:07] <cmn32480> s/which/what/
[13:08:09] <exec> <cmn32480> what speed bump?
[13:08:21] <Phoenix666> there's a limit on how many stories you can submit within a certain period of time
[13:08:30] <Phoenix666> it seems to be about 1/10 mins
[13:08:41] * cmn32480 points to TheMightyBuzzard
[13:09:01] <Phoenix666> it might be an anti-spam measure
[13:09:35] <Phoenix666> but i have about 17 article submissions lined up right now when the queue is low, and 10 mins per is prohibitive
[13:09:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> wut?
[13:10:11] <cmn32480> read last 10 lines of backscroll thmb
[13:10:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm... lemme check something
[13:10:31] <cmn32480> see? told you he always brings trouble!
[13:10:36] <Phoenix666> :-)
[13:10:47] <cmn32480> but the contributions are greatly appreciated
[13:10:59] <Phoenix666> i try to make your lives easier
[13:11:24] <cmn32480> and we appreciate it
[13:11:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> Phoenix666, it's cause your subscription ran out this week. anti-speedbump code is currently keyed to subscribers.
[13:12:11] <Phoenix666> oh, ok. i wasn't aware it had run out. i'll renew. thanks, buzz
[13:12:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> you da man, yo
[13:13:17] * cmn32480 needs to renew too
[13:13:22] <cmn32480> but keeps forgetting
[13:17:29] <cmn32480> done
[13:17:37] * cmn32480 checks one thing off the list
[13:17:46] <cmn32480> in celebration, /me goes for more coffee
[13:19:18] <Phoenix666> done. back on track now. cheers!
[13:20:05] * TheMightyBuzzard tips hat
[13:20:54] * cmn32480 give TMB a 5% raise on his SN salary for good work
[13:21:12] * TheMightyBuzzard promptly spends it all on fishing gear
[13:29:13] <Phoenix666> so...you fish with your hands?
[13:33:08] <cmn32480> he's a noodler
[13:33:15] <cmn32480> ~define noodling
[13:33:16] <exec> [urbandictionary] 03noodling: A form of fishing in which a crazy person runs into a lake and searches for holes on the bottom with his foot. Then he inserts his finger into the hole and lets something bite it. Hopefully, it's...
[13:40:33] <Phoenix666> I thought it was inserting your leg in the river bank so when the giant catfish try to eat it your redneck buddies can pull you (and it) out. Or not, and laugh at you while cracking open another beer.
[13:43:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> Phoenix666, very close to the truth, depending on the size of the catfish.
[13:45:23] <Phoenix666> I'm surprised nobody has figured out how to use a backhoe for the same purpose, unless noodling is really about leaving your buddy stuck in the riverbank with a giant catfish munching on his leg
[13:49:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> well, basically it is. plus you're not allowed to just go using earth moving equipment on land you don't own.
[14:02:46] <Phoenix666> Jim-Bob has one on a barge he can lend you

[21:16:02] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: ping.
[21:16:50] <Bytram> your submission concludes with "Scott Foval and Robert Creamer are currently unemployed as a result of these videos." -- but that's the first and only reference to "Robert Cramer" ??
[21:18:13] <Bytram> for now, am striking reference to Creamer in the story.
