[00:46:36] <mrpg> Good night, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. My name is Sir Charles Foxworth.
[00:50:11] <charon> Good evening, Sir Charles. A pleasure indeed!
[00:55:05] <mrpg> Likewise. I'm checking the submissions before heading to New Orleans from St. Louis on the ship "Delta Princess".
[00:56:04] <mrpg> I shall try my hand with the Intel GPU story.
[00:59:21] <mrpg> Interesting fellow this Knackerbracket. I have promised to dine at White's with him this week-end.
[01:02:44] <mrpg> Boring. Too much text, I prefer the android security one.
[01:03:40] <mrpg> hmm it's someone's blog.
[01:04:34] <mrpg> but ok looks informative.
[01:10:10] <charon> Knackerbracket is incompetent. He just sends the entire text and makes us figure it out.
[01:11:38] <mrpg> Hélas! oh woe is me. I'll do my best.

[01:12:33] <charon> Be ruthless. Pare away until not one excess word remains.
[01:12:59] <charon> Or just wing it and let janrinok figure it out.
[01:13:07] <charon> hiyo GreatOutdoors
[01:13:38] <GreatOutdoors> yo.
[01:14:26] Fnord666_away is now known as Fnord666
[01:14:50] <mrpg> hehe
[01:15:09] <Fnord666> Hey all.
[01:17:03] <mrpg> hi
[01:18:22] <Fnord666> hi mrpg charon GreatOutdoors
[01:18:39] <charon> hiyo Fnord666
[01:20:35] <charon> since we're all editors here, allow me to complain bitterly about the horrifyingly bad grammar in the story i am currently editing. I thought real newspapers were far far better than this
[01:20:57] <Fnord666> which story?
[01:21:22] <Fnord666> ah DeathMonkey's submission
[01:21:38] <charon> yes
[01:21:48] <charon> it's a national newspaper in the UK
[01:22:07] <charon> not like a bunch of high school students writing a blog
[01:22:44] <Fnord666> should get n1 to chime in on how far those two things are
[01:22:57] <Fnord666> how far apart they are that is.
[01:23:01] <charon> heh
[01:23:20] <mrpg> Nowadays journalists don't go to a classroom, they go to wikihow's "be a journalist in six steps".
[01:23:32] <Fnord666> See the top right story on the page
[01:23:35] <Fnord666> "Sizing up: women prefer slightly larger penises, new study reveals"
[01:23:36] * n1 chimes in
[01:24:09] <charon> Guardian: professional newspaper or bunch of barely literate simpletons?
[01:24:29] <n1> i don't think there's a difference...
[01:24:45] * charon claps
[01:25:15] <n1> interesting that the story doesn't even have an author
[01:25:18] <Fnord666> These days I think you're right.
[01:25:21] <charon> fnord: never have i been more glad to have an ad-blocker
[01:26:34] <n1> but seriously, the guardian is trash, but at the same time probably one of the better newspapers in the UK
[01:26:48] <charon> that is unfortunate
[01:27:25] <GreatOutdoors> I would just put a note at the bottom to the users letting them know that it is not us that wrote it, and don't shoot the messenger.
[01:27:34] <n1> They gave Glenn Greenwald a job, make of that what you will, as a 'professional newspaper' i think that's a point in their favour
[01:27:50] <charon> btw, whoever decides to second this story. there's another one that gives his name and says what he was charged with. https://www.theguardian.com
[01:27:51] <exec> └─ 13Armed man charged after 'self-investigating' pizzagate conspiracy | US news | The Guardian
[01:28:38] <n1> GreatOutdoors, it's all in a blockquote anyway
[01:28:43] <Fnord666> Saw that. Looks like a "Les Carpenter"
[01:29:02] <charon> ironically, isn't deathmonkey the super grammar pedant in comments?
[01:29:30] <GreatOutdoors> n1: yeah, but you know some people will not understand that it is a quote.. just saying
[01:30:14] <Fnord666> Looks like the second story identifies the suspect also.
[01:31:27] <n1> GreatOutdoors, no point in doing it just for this story, follows the same format as most stories with lots of blockquote
[01:32:14] <charon> hopefully by now readers understand why we make things in quotes... hopefully
[01:32:14] <GreatOutdoors> aye

[01:50:36] <mrpg> The editor shows me UTC but the submission list shows me my timezone utc-4. Is that normal?
[01:52:53] <charon> yes
[01:53:13] <charon> i gave up trying to fight it and set my account to UTC
[01:53:25] <charon> so at least they agree
[01:53:42] <Fnord666> OR go to the story list where you see both!
[01:54:20] <Fnord666> but yes, as charon pointed out that is normal.
[01:54:23] <charon> stop being reasonable
[01:55:12] <mrpg> Right, both are there. ok.
[01:55:20] <mrpg> My story is ready (no display) feel free to comment, good night, bye.

[03:43:42] <charon> that's good. in theory a mistake like that would get caught
[03:43:49] <cmn32480> it is far too late for me to be dicking with this having been up as long as I have
[03:44:33] <cmn32480> and that number is one I have pulled out of my ass.

[18:18:10] <cmn32480> spent the mornign at a customer site...
[18:18:15] <cmn32480> fixed most of their problems...
[18:18:26] <cmn32480> sitting here just eatinmg somethign at 1:15pm
[18:18:34] <cmn32480> trying not to fall asleep
[18:18:38] <cmn32480> pretty much the usual
[18:18:41] <cmn32480> how about you?
[18:19:21] <janrinok> we have just finished dinner, and S is now snug in her bed watching TV. I have just been scanning my computer logs and discovered that someone local is trying to hack into my wifi. He hasn't got in yet
[18:19:51] <cmn32480> change the SSID to "ICUTrying2HackMe"
[18:20:41] <janrinok> I've added some more security measures, and I am watching the the network more closely
[18:21:14] <cmn32480> just a script kiddie? or somebody for real?
[18:22:19] <janrinok> I'll also put an additional box between the router and the network tomorrow morning. It looks like someone is trying to hack the password and we have recently had some new houses built near-by. I suspect it is one of the new neighbours.
[18:22:54] <cmn32480> nice
[18:23:10] <cmn32480> that's what happens when bad people move into a good neighborhood
[18:23:20] <cmn32480> are tehny different from you in any way?
[18:23:21] <janrinok> there are about 8 - 10 new homes, and I only know one family who have moved in
[18:23:35] <cmn32480> purple with green polka dots?
[18:23:38] <janrinok> yes, they are French!
[18:23:44] <cmn32480> THOSE BASTARDS!
[18:24:05] <cmn32480> you shoudl be able to get them to flee pretty easy... tell them the Germans are coming
[18:24:24] <janrinok> cruel, but I'll save it for the next level of escalation
[18:24:26] <cmn32480> again....
[18:24:59] <cmn32480> shield the house in a Faraday cage?
[18:25:06] <janrinok> you saw the email from goodie?
[18:25:24] * cmn32480 goes to look at his email
[18:26:24] <janrinok> well, I know what times the hacking is being attempted, so I will have wireshark running over the usual periods, and I will use my directional antenna to see if I can work out which direction his attempts are coming from
[18:27:00] <cmn32480> then.. get a high gain yagi and turn the power to 11!
[18:27:05] <cmn32480> I see the email
[18:27:12] <janrinok> k
[18:27:12] <cmn32480> at least he was good enough to let us know
[18:27:23] <cmn32480> hopefully he comes back.
[18:27:55] <janrinok> yes, I had asked both mrpg and goodie to do so if they couldn't continue. mrpg joined us and goodie sent the email so I am pleased how it has turned out
[18:28:16] <janrinok> no hard feelings and the door is left open
[18:28:20] <cmn32480> absolutely
[18:28:39] <cmn32480> he seemed like a decent guy who wanted to help out
[18:28:50] <janrinok> and to be honest we have all been there
[18:29:07] <cmn32480> yup yup
[18:29:26] <janrinok> spoke to n1 earlier, he is about to travel to the US. Will not be on here for a while
[18:29:46] <cmn32480> is ok
[18:29:53] <cmn32480> glad he dropped a line letting us know
[18:30:14] * cmn32480 makes a note to let janrinok know that he has become a true slacker with all of these FNG
[18:30:23] <cmn32480> he = me
[18:30:49] <janrinok> understood
[18:31:11] <cmn32480> it isn't intentional
[18:31:30] <cmn32480> work has been a cluster with all the EOY stuff that has to happen
[18:31:34] <janrinok> that's why things got critical and we went looking for more eds
[18:31:54] <janrinok> you are busy, martyb is busy, and I am actually not posting as many as I was either.
[18:33:06] <cmn32480> giveing the new guys extra experience
[18:33:25] <cmn32480> that's my story and I'm sticking with it
[18:33:36] <janrinok> lol
[18:35:06] <cmn32480> all in all... I think we have a decent group of new recruits...
[18:35:15] <cmn32480> long as they dont' turn out like me, I think ti's a win
[18:35:29] <janrinok> well, they all type better than you do ...
[18:35:49] <cmn32480> and this is a news flash somehow?
[18:36:02] * cmn32480 submits a breaking news story
[18:38:17] <janrinok> I haven't got used to the new colours on the story list - I was wondering why my story was a funny washed out tan colour
[18:38:29] <cmn32480> story list don't liek you anymore
[18:38:37] <cmn32480> somebody did explain it, yes?
[18:38:51] <janrinok> I don't think it liked be before - yes I understand the reasons behind the change
[18:38:59] <janrinok> me*
[18:39:16] <cmn32480> well.. at least the story list is like the rest of us.
[18:40:54] * cmn32480 snickers
[18:41:13] <cmn32480> email auto reply I just got: " I will be on holiday with limited access to email and voicemail. "
[18:41:18] <janrinok> I was ignoring that childish attempt at humour, although I will confess to smiling a little
[18:41:40] <cmn32480> don't belly laugh... it'll disturb MASH
[18:41:46] <cmn32480> he's not a brit
[18:41:57] <cmn32480> he doens't get to use the term "on holiday"
[18:43:50] <janrinok> is he an Aussie or Zealander?
[18:43:58] <cmn32480> nope
[18:44:09] <cmn32480> born and raised within 10 miles of my current location
[18:44:20] <janrinok> we'll exact our revenge at a time of our choosing
[18:44:33] <cmn32480> subject him to #fite?
[18:45:02] <janrinok> nah, I always lose at that
[18:45:13] <cmn32480> #fite janrinok
[18:45:13] <MrPlow> #fite spam going to channel #fite
[18:45:17] * cmn32480 giggles
[18:45:19] <MrPlow> #fite janrinok falls broken at cmn32480's feet.
[18:45:29] <janrinok> see!
[18:45:47] * cmn32480 is level gerzilllion or somesuch
[18:50:14] <janrinok> I've chatted to several of the FNGs over the last few weeks or so and they have generally acknowledged the effort it takes to edit a story well, and a couple of them have said they can appreciate the effort that we had been making in the dark old days
[18:50:30] <cmn32480> well that's nice to hear
[18:50:38] <janrinok> that's what I thought too
[18:50:52] <cmn32480> so they understand that it is more than picking a dept line and looking for typos
[18:51:02] <cmn32480> means we did a decent job training them
[18:51:11] <janrinok> well, that's what we do, but the FNGs don't have to know that
[18:52:18] <cmn32480> lol
[18:53:12] <janrinok> ... but I'm still very grateful for a good P666 submission
[18:53:57] <cmn32480> w/o question. He gives us good material, and even his fair to middling stuff is usually pretty good.
[18:55:26] <janrinok> After Christmas I will try to get the one or two outstanding possible volunteers for ed training to decide one way or another.
[18:55:57] <cmn32480> ok
[18:56:21] <cmn32480> yeah let it ride through the holidays... maybe some peopel with some extra time frees up
[18:56:23] <janrinok> I don't think anyone is going to step up this close to the holiday
[18:57:37] <janrinok> I've still got sea, cockroach, julian, caffeine and Azuma to look at
[18:57:38] <cmn32480> unlikely
[18:58:06] <janrinok> unless you have any additional info on any of them?
[18:58:06] <cmn32480> I think we are fine to make it to the first of the year. and reapproach after
[18:58:15] * cmn32480 checks his pockets
[18:58:31] * cmn32480 finds bellybutton lint
[18:58:48] <cmn32480> ~gday >beverage bellybutton lint
[18:58:49] <exec> added to beverages
[18:58:53] <janrinok> that's your most valuable contribution in quite some time
[18:59:05] <cmn32480> #smakeadd bellybutton lint
[18:59:05] <MrPlow> "bellybutton lint" added.

[19:00:05] * exec half-heartedly vomits some chewy chunks of pascal on chromas

[19:01:33] <janrinok> ~gday chromas things going well fiting cmn32480 ?
[19:01:35] * exec romantically drops a fat32 volume of baby batter on chromas
[19:02:01] <chromas> Mmm, baby batter
[19:02:24] <chromas> Yep. the gods smiled upon a bot; couldn't let it go to waste
[19:02:29] <janrinok> pleased as we are to see you again, you are going to get yourself a bad name hanging about here
[19:02:46] * chromas exits back to #
[19:02:56] <janrinok> didn't mean that ...
[19:03:02] <cmn32480> janrinok, WE are the bad influence in ths conversation????
[19:03:12] <janrinok> I spose so
[19:03:19] <cmn32480> interesting
[19:05:05] <janrinok> chromas, please come back, I didn't mean it ....
[19:05:43] * janrinok wonders if wailing and gnashing of teeth would make it more convincing?
[19:05:45] <cmn32480> careful... he might send in ThrobinCoq instead
[19:05:49] <chromas> I didn't run off; just don't wanna shit up the channel too much with my shenanigans. That's what you guys are paid for :D
[19:06:06] <janrinok> there is nothing happening on here
[19:06:06] <cmn32480> wait.. we are supposed to get paid for this gig???
[19:06:17] <janrinok> chromas, you were told not to tell him!
[19:06:26] * cmn32480 looks to the EIC in an accusatory fashion
[19:06:31] <chromas> it's all part of my master plan...
[19:06:35] <chromas> You get paid in internets
[19:06:52] * cmn32480 checks his pockets
[19:07:03] * cmn32480 finds MORE bellybutton lint
[19:07:09] <janrinok> I've only got the one and I'm currently using it
[19:07:20] <chromas> I see you found your paycheck
[19:08:31] * cmn32480 is donig this via TCP?Carrier Pigeon
[19:09:07] <janrinok> does your pigeon have a club foot, it might explain all of the typos
[19:09:33] <cmn32480> yes.. and he doens't like being told about it
[19:09:37] <janrinok> time for tea
[19:09:51] <cmn32480> cucumber and creme cheese sammiches too?
[19:10:36] * janrinok steps out for a moment to let cmn32480 smooth things over with his pigeon. Looks in fridge for cucumber and cheese, remembers he ate it all at lunchtime
[19:11:00] * cmn32480 points an laughs.... then roasts the pigeon
[19:14:28] * janrinok suspects that didn't help the pigeon's hurt feelings much
[19:14:41] <cmn32480> no.. but it helped my empty stomach
[19:16:54] <janrinok> I'm impressed that the Vegetarian cafe story is on 81 comments and still climbing!
[19:17:17] <janrinok> I've decided that I cannot spot a good story...!
[19:17:27] * cmn32480 hasn't had a chace to look at it
[19:17:41] <cmn32480> is that the "Corpse Cash" one?
[19:18:15] <cmn32480> and remember.. with the volume that we have put through, hitting on a couple is inevitable
[19:18:25] <cmn32480> see this years's election story
[19:18:27] <janrinok> that's the one!
[19:37:56] <cmn32480> and surprisingly interesting discussion...
[19:38:08] <cmn32480> who woudl have thunk people sharing recipies?
[19:38:18] <janrinok> yes, but it will all be forgotten in a few weeks time
[19:38:24] <cmn32480> or as you'd say "receipts"...
[19:38:44] <janrinok> I don't know if you recall my bread recipes when we were still starting up?
[19:38:49] <cmn32480> the harmony? or the outrage over the greasy money?
[19:39:02] <cmn32480> can't say i do
[19:40:20] <janrinok> I've been making bread for several years now, and when we were first starting up I would discuss bread making and various recipes. It got quite competitive in a friendly sort of way.
[19:40:42] <cmn32480> I don't recall that
[19:40:51] <janrinok> most of it was on IRC but I think some recipes got published.
[19:40:57] * chromas recalls much food discussion
[19:41:01] <janrinok> lol
[19:41:10] <janrinok> bacon
[19:41:10] <chromas> also beer brewing and tea
[19:41:16] <cmn32480> I wasn't on IRC Much until the Barrabas NC fued
[19:41:29] <janrinok> , poutine
[19:41:39] <cmn32480> poutine--
[19:41:39] <Bender> karma - poutine: -1
[19:41:47] <janrinok> it might have been just before that
[19:42:01] <janrinok> there is a man that remembers poutine
[19:42:39] <cmn32480> he used to poke in every once in a while.
[19:42:46] <cmn32480> talk a buncha shit, and roll
[19:43:02] <cmn32480> I think it pretty well stopped after he had a kid
[19:44:06] <janrinok> I wonder if he came back under a different nick?
