[01:34:34] <cmn32480> zz_janrinok - I shall keep you both in my prayers
[01:41:31] <cmn32480> due to lack of viable stuff in the queue, pleaes extend time from 90 minutes to 105 or 120.

[01:49:11] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[01:51:23] <Bytram> zz_janrinok: ((( S ))) ((( JR ))) Both of you are in my prayers... Don't worry about us, we'll manage... take care of her (and yourself!).
[02:15:12] <Bytram> takyon: I saw your note on the ballot initiatives story, but I fail to understand why we should wait until monday... many states have 'early voting" and there's absentee ballots, as well -- both of which allow voting well before election day... am going to queue your story now... can change if you disagree.

[02:15:39] <exec> └─ 13How US Democrats Killed Their Populist Soul: SoylentNews Submission
[02:15:43] <cmn32480> this looks to have some actual promise
[02:16:02] <cmn32480> it traces an interesting turning point in the ideaology of the Democratic party
[02:16:16] <cmn32480> no tech angle... but interesting nonetheless
[02:18:25] <Bytram> yes, interesting...
[02:18:57] <Bytram> you want to run it? if not,I'll put itout there.
[02:19:08] * cmn32480 is working the iiot cell phone hack
[02:19:15] <cmn32480> I'll run it next
[02:19:19] <Bytram> k

[02:20:26] <Bender> karma - food: 2
[02:20:32] <cmn32480> amen
[02:20:38] * cmn32480 is wasting away to nothing
[02:20:59] <Bytram> now THAT is some diet you've got there!
[02:21:09] * Bytram has seen pics of cmn32480
[02:21:14] <cmn32480> you calling me fat?
[02:21:22] <Bytram> "substantial"
[02:21:27] <cmn32480> we can't a'' be svelte like some people in this conversation
[02:22:18] <Bytram> you are a man of substance, whereas I'd just be "blowin in the wind"
[02:23:03] * cmn32480 notes that bytram is tap dancing rather well this evening
[02:23:10] <cmn32480> been taking lessons?
[02:23:30] * Bytram hits pause on his copy of "Riverdance"
[02:23:36] <Bytram> huh?
[02:25:01] <cmn32480> in tap dancing
[02:26:27] <Bytram> guess you didn't get the riverdance reference... kinda like tap dancing, but in clogs
[02:30:34] <Bytram> break time; biab
[03:16:05] <takyon> why is this flamebait running? https://soylentnews.org
[03:16:07] <exec> └─ 13Error
[03:16:30] <cmn32480> did you read the article, or just the headline?
[03:17:09] <takyon> so you're saying it has a clickbait-flamebait headline instead
[03:17:53] <cmn32480> yes.. ti does
[03:17:59] <cmn32480> I'll think of somethign better
[03:18:09] <takyon> I just changed the spacing in the article
[03:18:12] <Bytram> the title actually seems apropos to the story... but then again, I'm exhausted and probably not the best judge of things atm
[03:18:18] <takyon> I always remove line breaks after [...]
[03:18:29] <Bytram> same here
[03:18:38] * cmn32480 forgot
[03:18:53] <Bytram> np, I miss 'em on occasion, too.
[03:19:04] <takyon> as for the ballot story, yeah you can run whenever you want. I voted early, so your argument makes complete sense
[03:19:12] <Bytram> kewe3l
[03:19:30] <Bytram> excellent article, btw!
[03:19:45] <takyon> I kinda intended it to be a reminder of what ballot intiatives to track on election day
[03:20:19] * Bytram is curious how the "ranked voting" item will fare in Maine
[03:20:37] <Bytram> first break of the two-party stranglehold?
[03:20:46] <takyon> yeah I have advocated for similar many times here
[03:20:52] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:20:59] <Bytram> nodding off to sleep...
[03:21:08] <Bytram> gonna call it a day.
[03:21:13] <takyon> the Maine initiative seems more comprehensive than other places it is used, like primaries
[03:21:14] <takyon> night
[03:21:15] <Bytram> or night.

[11:09:07] <Bytram> takyon: My view is that we are still in the early days of the technology: battery life is problematic (compared to conventional watches), the majority are still large and bulky, and there are trade-offs between features, never mind what features are popular/useful. If it were a PC, I'd say we are at about early pentium laptop machines stage of things.
[11:12:12] <Bytram> eds: I pushed out the ballot initiatives story and moved it up in the queue so as many as possible can participate prior to the election. It will need a second, soon... but I just realized I forgot to split some into Extended Copy so we don't have a wall-of-text on the main page.... brb
