[15:12:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> i think you won. you can at least recycle rusty nails
[15:12:53] <janrinok> I think that cmn32480's store brand beer is the winner - free beer is free beer
[15:13:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> indeed
[15:13:54] <cmn32480> agreed

[15:15:12] <janrinok> lol
[15:16:36] <cmn32480> how goes today janrinok
[15:16:51] <janrinok> not bad, quite a busy day domestically, but not too bad
[15:18:03] <cmn32480> well I'm glad you were at least busy domestically.. being busy internationally would be much more difficulter for you
[15:18:55] <janrinok> I'm busy internationally now - unless you have moved somewhere closer than you were yesterday
[15:45:08] * cmn32480 is swimming

[22:18:37] <Fnord666> chilly charon?
[22:19:35] <charon_> i was wondering if that would ping you
[22:19:55] <Fnord666> it did
[22:20:37] <Fnord666> I;m making a mess of a story at the moment.
[22:22:16] <Deucalion> pingity Fnord666 - around for the next few hours if you want your bouncer setup just pingity me at some point. I may be afk around the house but I am sorta here this evening.
[22:23:13] <Fnord666> Deucalion - I'm around as weell for the eve. I'm in the middle of my first story merge but I should be done in 10 min or so if you're available.
[22:24:17] <Deucalion> No rush. I'm busy around home doing washing and the like having just got back from a week away for work. Just hit me up whenever is convenient.
[22:25:43] * Deucalion mulls... I have no idea how to do a story merge, so good luck with that... I'm sure the other eds will help you out if it all goes horribly wrong :D
[22:25:56] <Fnord666> thx. I know they will
[22:32:54] <Fnord666> ~eds I merged two stories together, then ended up late merging a third into https://soylentnews.org
[22:32:55] <exec> editor ping for Fnord666 (reason: i merged two stories together, then ended up late merging a third into https://soylentnews.org): janrinok zz_janrinok n1 nick martyb Bytram cmn32480 coolhand takyon bytram|away Fnord666 charon GreatOutdoors FatPhil Snow goodie mrpg
[22:32:56] <exec> └─ 13Error
[22:33:31] <Fnord666> If someone would give what I did a good going over and provide feedback I would appreciate it.
[22:48:01] <charon_> looks terrible, i'd rather drink a mug of hypergolic buttsauce
[22:48:26] <Fnord666> thanks
[22:48:31] <charon_> <3
[22:48:55] <Fnord666> :-)
[22:49:32] <Fnord666> I tried to use what janrinok did with the windows 10 story as a guideline of sorts.
[22:50:05] <charon_> looks ok text wise, but theres only one non-display-for-credit-only story
[22:51:12] <Fnord666> That's because I had already done a merge between the other two. If you look at the non-display
[22:51:18] <Fnord666> you'll see that it's a merge.
[22:51:41] <Fnord666> only after I did that merge and saved the story did I see the third submission
[22:52:08] <charon_> i have never been initiated into the art of the merged story. something about the checkboxes? but then i'm lost
[22:52:18] <Fnord666> so I did a late merge with the third story.
[22:52:32] <Fnord666> me either. I was doing "on the job learning".
[22:53:04] <charon_> so the non-display one credits the two mergees, the third one credits #3 and you grafted in the earlier text?
[22:54:54] <Fnord666> yes
[22:55:20] <Fnord666> I think that should get credit where credit is due
[23:01:53] * Deucalion is so glad we have editors to edit stuff. You all get a raise this holiday season, a generous 50% raise. :)
[23:02:35] <charon_> seriously, it is very good. as long as credit is apportioned properly, it's ready to roll. may want to wait on cmn if he's about
[23:03:11] <charon_> 50%! you're too good to us, Deucalion
[23:03:25] <charon_> oh, except you missed an oxford comma, Fnord666

[23:03:40] * MrPlow smakes Fnord666 upside the head with a creampie
[23:04:20] <Fnord666> yum, pie.
[23:04:44] <Fnord666> I'm just so used to not including it
[23:05:06] <charon_> what kind of barbarian would not use it?
[23:17:14] <Fnord666> disconnecting so I can connect ZNC

[23:29:25] <charon_> are you actually back?
[23:30:53] <Fnord666> I am
[23:36:00] <Deucalion> he bounced right back in :)
[23:36:09] <Deucalion> or she...
[23:36:37] <Deucalion> hmm.... "they" - ya there you go that's a gender neutral word
[23:36:38] <charon_> damnit, it took me about half an hour of being stupid to figure it out
[23:37:01] <charon_> it can't be because i'm dumb, so fnord must be a super-genius
[23:37:38] <Deucalion> Or half an hour of the wiki instruction not being clear enough.... which as I wrote it would not surprise me. Which bit foiled you death canoe paddler?
[23:38:04] <charon_> the part where i wasn't sure whether the $ were literal or not
[23:39:28] <Deucalion> That's a fair point actually.. particularly with the trailling $ I put in there....
[23:39:57] <charon_> but really it was my own fault. because i put my password into the "ident" field because i thought it was what to send to identify myself
[23:40:23] * Deucalion coughs
[23:40:28] <charon_> if i had not done that, i would have gone through the 2 possible choices of $charon$ or charon quicker
[23:40:38] <charon_> shush you
[23:40:53] <charon_> i'll send another flood, and this time i'll get you
[23:41:01] <Deucalion> I take it you now know what IDENT actually is or rather was?
[23:41:02] * Bytram offers a lozenge to Deucalion
[23:42:04] <Bytram> Deucalion: is it something that an ICAR makes?
[23:42:25] <Bytram> ;)
[23:42:39] <charon_> see! bytram would have done the same
[23:43:21] <Bytram> doubtful, I had Deucalion guiding me step by step before there was a guide on the wiki
[23:43:29] * Deucalion thanks Bytram for the kind offer, but declines... it may not sit well with a beer and an oversized bag of Doritos... so oversized I have eaten about three of the things and the flavourings compel me to throw the rest in the bin. Seriously... chilli heatwave is making my eyes hurt just by being open on the desk. That can't be healthy to eat
[23:43:58] <Bytram> then again it was about 0130 when we embarked on setting me up oh these many many days ago
[23:44:30] <charon_> with your propensity for breaking things it was probably dawn when you finished
[23:44:31] <Bytram> Deucalion: appreciate the candor -- good for the mouth may not be best for the soul
[23:45:09] <Bytram> well, prolly stated at 1230am and took about an hour / hour-and-a-half IIRC
[23:45:39] <Deucalion> teehee - that blow by blow handholding exercise was most useful for forming the current wiki destructions. And as we see, they are still not quite clear.
[23:45:44] * Bytram just remembers he was tired when we *started* -- followed instructions, got it working, don't remember much.
[23:47:02] <Bytram> Deucalion: to your credit, they're not that bad... cmn was your guinea pig when you first wrote 'em and he seemed able to worry things out okay
[23:47:02] <charon_> as i recall there are also $ surrounding the password in the wiki directions. that's what made me take them as tokens to mean "put your info here, but ignore the $"
[23:47:12] <Deucalion> Well if it was 0130 for you when we started I was probably not in a state fit for human company :D
[23:47:59] <Bytram> au contraire! you were a beacon of gentleness and patience -- much obliged!
[23:48:32] <Bytram> afk dishes
[23:49:42] <Deucalion> May be better if I just italicise than use the $ for clarity reasons. The less I have to do to get people setup the better. It's an effin puter thingamie, they will bend to my will and save my time.
[23:51:39] * Bytram prefers explicit examples... let's say your nickname is NickName and your password is HUNTER2 and then when you fill out this form, ...
[23:51:50] <Bytram> italics help, too.
[23:52:20] <Bytram> as long as there have been docs, there's always been a meta-issue as far as I can tell.

[23:52:33] <Deucalion> Ahh... now I see why I did that way.... those $ delimited bits are held in code blocks - italics are not possible in those.
[23:52:45] <Bytram> ahhh, nod nod
[23:53:26] <Bytram> so, italicize in the introduction; plain text in the example?
[23:53:28] <Bytram> ok; biab
[23:54:57] <Deucalion> Meh..... I can't think of a better way of doing it... but it's a wiki so anyone can have a go :) Fnord666 shows it is not really so hard :D
[23:55:16] <charon_> it's not, i'm just joshing you
[23:55:33] <charon_> i really did the ident thing, and that is what made it so hard for me
[23:56:15] * Deucalion goes to dispose of the remainder of this pack of Doritos at the far end of the garden. Seriously these things are venting noxious gases.
[23:56:54] <charon_> but one thing that might be worth inserting is that when you set buffer lines, that only applies to channels you join after setting.
[23:57:08] <charon_> maybe it already says that
