[12:42:05] <Bytram> WOW!
[13:29:57] <Bytram> Time for a new poll -- new one is scheduled to go out at: 2016-11-11 12:34:56 https://soylentnews.org "When transferring multiple 100+ MB files between computers or devices, I typically use:"

[13:34:53] -!- crutchy has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[13:43:29] <Bytram> cmn32480: and... have the foresight that it would be a popular story for discussion. well done!
[13:44:22] <cmn32480> I'm not sure exactly what you are implying.
[13:45:07] <cmn32480> do we care about the Joe Arpaio story that gewg_ subbed?
[13:47:55] <cmn32480> I am quite amazed at the civility of the discussion in that story
[13:48:10] <cmn32480> nobody really getting out of hand.. no spam mods...
[13:48:28] * Bytram has not waded into that story yet... happy to hear it has been a civil discussion!
[13:48:48] <Bytram> as for joe? not sure
[13:49:16] <Bytram> he is well known for being hard on those in jail... baloney sandwich for a meal... outdoor/tent housing, etc.
[13:49:28] <Bytram> also hard carackdown on looking for illegal immigrants
[13:49:37] <Bytram> so, there's a story there, but...
[13:49:46] <Bytram> is it one we want to run on SN?
[13:49:48] <Bytram> not so sure on that.
[13:50:04] <cmn32480> I think it isn't really anything for us
[13:50:10] <Bytram> agreed.
[13:53:00] <cmn32480> binned
[13:54:16] <Bytram> tx
[13:56:40] <cmn32480> buzz tall you I broke the story first thign yesterday morning?
[13:57:10] <cmn32480> and I mean literally broke it.... not in a journalistic sense
[13:57:40] <cmn32480> I hit update on an old tab... and wiped it out.
[13:58:05] <Bytram> huh?
[13:58:16] <cmn32480> the elecction story
[13:58:40] <Bytram> yeah... I'd seen notes here about it getting broken, but still don't understand what happened?
[13:59:03] <cmn32480> I hit refresh on one of the original tabs I had open that had it open
[13:59:24] <Bytram> refresh in your browser?
[13:59:38] <cmn32480> after I posted it... and it changed everythgin back to the original couple lines, changed the time, and set it to no display
[13:59:43] <cmn32480> yep
[13:59:54] <Bytram> ouch!
[14:00:02] <cmn32480> I alpmost pooped myself
[14:00:20] * Bytram prepares a roll of TP to send to cmn32480
[14:00:23] <cmn32480> and of course I did this as I was walking otu the door

[14:01:39] <Bytram> funny you should mention that... currect / very-recent fortune on our site: O'Toole's commentary on Murphy's Law -- Murphy was an optimist.
[14:02:36] <cmn32480> Buzz had the article open and was able to reconstuct it.... hence the note at the bottom for me to quit breaking stuff
[14:02:51] <Bytram> ahhh, NOW I gets it.
[14:03:37] <Bytram> sounds like we are missing a test to see if the last-changed date/time of when you originally retrieved the story is different when you go to update it.
[14:06:19] <cmn32480> yes
[14:09:04] <Bytram> hmmm, is it really that easy? The idea came to me without any real conscious thought... and that's from something that i learned in college many many moons ago.
[14:09:30] <Bytram> okay, and from some code I tested in the mid 80s
[14:09:47] <Bytram> yikes! has it been THAT long? Yowza!

[18:47:11] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[18:47:12] * exec dexterously steals a hammerfs volume of null terminators from janrinok
[18:47:16] <cmn32480> how's S?
[18:47:40] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480 S is tired and weak, but glad to be home
[18:47:42] * exec seductively pukes a shoe of wiffle balls on cmn32480
[18:48:02] <cmn32480> I can only imagine you are happy to have her there
[18:48:41] <janrinok> yes indeed! S can only just lift a forkful of food at the moment, the weakest that I have ever seen her
[18:49:12] * cmn32480 is sad to hear that
[18:49:48] * cmn32480 is glad she is home. and that you are both happy to be home
[18:49:55] <janrinok> ... but she _is_ home, so I'll just have to do a bit more to help
[18:50:32] <cmn32480> so no nuclear war yet
[18:51:07] <cmn32480> adn the election story is 6 comments away from being tied for the #1 spot in the HOF.
[18:51:10] <janrinok> we were waiting for your President Elect to start it!
[18:51:22] <cmn32480> 'so are we
[18:51:26] <cmn32480> (kinda)
[18:52:08] <janrinok> although the Brexiteers feel that sometime soon somebody is going to ask what the fuck is going on with modern politics
[18:52:27] <cmn32480> I woudl agree with that staement
[18:52:38] <cmn32480> TMB's journal quote pretty well summed that up
[18:53:16] <cmn32480> Britain: Brexit is the most shocking thing a country will do this year.
[18:53:16] <cmn32480> America: Hold my beer...
[18:53:30] <janrinok> I'll have to give that a read - he normally does a very good job at elucidating such things
[18:53:45] <cmn32480> the entire thing:
[18:53:46] <janrinok> I've seen that comment on Imgur and elsewhere
[18:53:46] <cmn32480> So, I've been sitting here watching the Spam moderations page and the mod-bombs page post-election thinking someone's gonna get butthurt and abuse moderation. It has yet to happen. Kudos to everyone for managing to restrain themselves. You guys make me fucking proud, so I'll leave you with this little bit of humor on an otherwise tense day:
[18:53:46] <cmn32480> Britain: Brexit is the most shocking thing a country will do this year.
[18:53:46] <cmn32480> America: Hold my beer...
[18:55:16] <cmn32480> so far, the world has not ended
[18:55:23] <cmn32480> so that's a silver lining
[18:57:01] <janrinok> a very different tone from Trump since the result was announced - although he can only blame the current protests on the way he has behaved, IMHO
[19:00:26] <cmn32480> ya think?
[19:00:30] <janrinok> how's J and the kids?
[19:01:00] <cmn32480> I ahve a feeling that regardless of who won, as long as it wasn't Hillary, there were going to be protests and pissed off people becasue we didn't elect a wonam
[19:01:10] <cmn32480> J and the kids are doing well.
[19:01:39] <cmn32480> everybody survived Halloween without a chocolate voerload (except me), so that was good
[19:02:50] <janrinok> nobody knocked on my door, but that is not surprising. France doesn't do Halloween like you do.
[19:03:56] <cmn32480> I di dthe fire pit in the driveway... beer in the cooler...
[19:04:23] <cmn32480> J and the kids walked around... I stayed home to hand out candy
[19:04:58] <janrinok> I just hid behind my front door determined to frighten the hell out of anyone who dared disturbed me!
[19:05:08] <janrinok> I guess the word got out ...
[19:05:30] <cmn32480> so.. you fell asleep early in a chair by the door?
[19:06:15] <janrinok> yep, by 4:30 in the afternoon. Woke up just after midnight freezing cold ... You just can't trust neighbours nowadays
[19:07:45] <cmn32480> dirty rotten kids that dind't disturb you! how dare tehy
[19:08:18] <janrinok> I'd have had a good night if it hadn't been for those pesky kids ...
[19:12:08] <cmn32480> seriously.
[19:13:36] <janrinok> was that a comment on my last statement, or an introduction to something you are about to say?
[19:14:02] <cmn32480> comment
[19:14:15] <cmn32480> I have nothign serious to say
[19:14:21] <janrinok> no change there then
[19:14:29] <cmn32480> I;'m still living in election afterglow watching the chaos in the liberal world
[19:16:45] <janrinok> Bytram|away is getting close to the 3k mark!
[19:16:59] <cmn32480> he only needs a half dozen or so.
[19:17:19] <cmn32480> has been quite prolific of late with me on the road
[19:17:56] <janrinok> so I've noticed
[19:18:30] <janrinok> I'm torn with helping out by posting more stories or letting him have the lead - he has worked hard for it
[19:18:56] <cmn32480> either way
[19:19:05] <cmn32480> I'd rather you posted, honestly..
[19:19:30] <cmn32480> my bigger fear is that the three of us are going to crash and burn soon
[19:19:45] <janrinok> so would I, but I don't want him to think that I'm just doing it to spite him :)
[19:20:18] <cmn32480> Bytram|away - He;s just admitted to posting to keep you out of the lead for spite ^^^^
[19:20:50] <janrinok> oh, you are a wag!
[19:21:04] <cmn32480> like shuffling a couple stories to remove a day of <insert Editor here>
[19:23:40] <cmn32480> it's all good
[19:23:45] <cmn32480> he has been a beast this year
[19:24:25] <janrinok> any sign of NotSanguine joining back in?
[19:24:43] <cmn32480> nope
[19:25:01] <cmn32480> dropped a couple in after the rights got put back.. but he said it might be several weeks
[19:25:19] <cmn32480> he's posted a couple comments on stories, I think
[19:25:21] <janrinok> fair enough
[19:26:37] <cmn32480> I think that we need to start looking for a few more Eds in the hope that one or two will work out
[19:27:43] <janrinok> agreed - I didn't want to shout out until I was in a position to help train any potential volunteers - otherwise we just increase the workload of those that are able to contribute now
[19:28:05] <cmn32480> I'm willing to help train and review efforts
[19:28:46] <cmn32480> short term pain for long term gain?
[19:29:00] <janrinok> I know, but that would have given you additional work while I was unsure of what was happening. But I don't think we can hang on much longer
[19:29:04] <cmn32480> 'cept me.. I'm a long term pain
[19:29:41] <janrinok> do you want to knock something together? Or would you rather I did something over the next few days?
[19:30:21] <cmn32480> I'll put something together... put it out a week or so in the queue, and set to non-display so we all can poke it with a sharp stick
[19:30:46] <cmn32480> God Bless P666... he is a submission machine
[19:30:50] <janrinok> and find out who, amongst the current eds, is available/willing to assist with training
[19:31:32] <cmn32480> ~eds - Who is available to assist with training/review of edited subs for any new people we might get?
[19:31:32] <janrinok> I was processing his stories as he was subbing them - I wanted to see if he could work out where they were going :)

[19:36:46] * cmn32480 looks at janrinok with a fisheye
[19:38:06] * janrinok always thought that cmn32480 had a funny eye
[19:38:22] <cmn32480> hey! it isn't funny! it's just lazy
[19:38:37] <janrinok> in a funny sort of way
[19:39:15] <janrinok> not a good sign - S is watching MASH, but hasn't laughed out once this evening
[19:39:21] * cmn32480 tries to look at janrinok... and gives up
[19:39:28] <cmn32480> <sigh>
[19:40:32] * janrinok 's rugged beauty often has that effect on people looking at him
[19:41:19] <cmn32480> that'd mean I coudn'tlook away..
[19:42:55] <janrinok> nah, its just that people try to hide the perfectly understandable jealousy that they feel when compared with such a fine specimen of humankind - if perhaps a pound or 3 overweight
[19:43:18] * cmn32480 adds the correct number of zero's to that statement
[19:43:19] <janrinok> oh, that and my obvious modesty
[19:44:09] <cmn32480> well a guy aTHAT good looking has to be a biut modest

[19:50:17] * cmn32480 can't remember his own neme much less where stuff is written in exec
[19:50:38] <janrinok> it gets worse with age - trust me on this
[19:50:47] <cmn32480> who the hell are you?
[19:51:31] <janrinok> I would have responded more quickly but I couldn't find certain keys on the keyboard
[19:53:22] <cmn32480> worn off or you forget where they are?
[19:53:57] <janrinok> the latter
[19:54:25] <cmn32480> what were we talking about again?
[19:54:52] <janrinok> we were talking about the latter, but the latter what I've got no idea
