[00:58:25] <MrPlow> #fite FatPhil falls broken at cmn32480's feet.
[00:58:26] <GreatOutdoors> I am taking 10 days off for christmas.
[00:58:40] <cmn32480> very nice
[00:58:44] <cmn32480> good for you
[00:58:48] <cmn32480> going on a Bender?
[00:59:53] <GreatOutdoors> Visiting family out of state, likely some drining with them.
[01:00:04] <cmn32480> out of state bender... even better idea
[01:00:17] <cmn32480> and a girl in every port
[01:00:54] <GreatOutdoors> nah, just need one at home.
[01:01:10] <GreatOutdoors> gotta find that one still too.
[01:02:00] <cmn32480> start with one in every port and narrow it down.
[01:02:06] <GreatOutdoors> lol
[01:02:25] <cmn32480> and let the rest of us poor married saps live vicariously
[01:02:30] <cmn32480> in the mean time
[01:02:50] <charon_> and divorced saps too
[01:03:10] <cmn32480> yep
[01:03:13] <cmn32480> them too
[01:03:21] <cmn32480> but they have their own chance at a girl in every port...
[01:03:29] <cmn32480> us married guys... not so much
[01:04:23] <cmn32480> but anyway
[01:04:40] <cmn32480> I'm just happy to be home for 4 weeks straight
[01:04:46] <cmn32480> been some timesince that happened
[01:05:03] <charon_> nice. except for the hanging christmas lights part
[01:05:14] <cmn32480> no high wire work
[01:05:25] <cmn32480> I got as far off hte ground as the chair would take me
[01:05:58] <cmn32480> and it was NOT a tall chair
[01:06:04] <charon_> heh
[01:06:27] <charon_> and here i was envisioning you climbing up to the roof to make a big display
[01:06:55] <GreatOutdoors> I am generally home unless I travel for training or a special work trip, but that is only a few times per year.
[01:07:33] <cmn32480> I have 60 nights on the road this year
[01:07:49] <cmn32480> last year was between 75 and 90... but I'd have to look it up
[01:10:53] <GreatOutdoors> I used to work for Roche (RTD) and I was only home one night per week. The pay was excellent, but I quit after a year due to the work schedule. They lied and told me it was a home most nights job.
[01:11:19] <cmn32480> yeah I knew mine might take me out this much...
[01:14:51] <cmn32480> biab

[18:21:29] <cmn32480> least the FNG is still learning
[18:21:36] <janrinok> slowly ...

[18:22:55] <exec> └─ 13Robot Check
[18:23:28] <cmn32480> we are still giggling about it
[18:23:29] <janrinok> what an earth for?
[18:23:33] <cmn32480> and it was an accident
[18:23:45] <cmn32480> i think the point is quite plain
[18:23:57] <cmn32480> party in the potty
[18:24:09] <janrinok> ah, the backstory is all important
[18:25:11] <cmn32480> he ordered a switch for his pellet stove... and that is what was in the box.
[18:27:44] <charon_> 8 colors
[18:27:54] <charon_> pretty snazzy
[18:27:56] <cmn32480> like shitting on a rainbow
[18:28:34] <charon_> i should get one so my housemate stops pissing on the floor
[18:29:08] <janrinok> lol
[18:29:20] <cmn32480> won't help my kids...
[18:29:41] <cmn32480> they'd sit there and try to make it turn on... and change the collors...
[18:30:28] <janrinok> that's what kids do
[18:33:13] <charon_> one would clip it on his clothes and run around saying, "i'm a toilet!"
[18:35:23] <cmn32480> not exactly an unlikely happeining
[18:35:53] * cmn32480 can only hope that woudl be BEFORE it gets hung on the bowl the first time
[18:38:02] <cmn32480> dingus...
[18:38:09] <cmn32480> install the DB BEFORE installing the service packs
[18:38:16] <cmn32480> works MUCH better that way
[18:38:37] <cmn32480> PEBKAC error
[18:39:37] <charon_> man, it must suck being the boss. no one left to blame when you screw up
[18:39:59] <janrinok> if you are the boss you can blame anyone
[18:40:07] <cmn32480> strange.. janrinok is the boss and still seems to blame the rest of us
[18:47:43] <charon_> i have a thing i'd like to get an opinion on. someone responded to a two week old comment yesterday with a site suggestion which may or may not be reasonable or possible: https://soylentnews.org
[18:47:46] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews Comments | Treating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria at the Wastewater Plant
[19:01:16] <janrinok> The Wiki article goes into detail regarding how this is trying to get round the paywalls, I think we might still leave ourselves open to criticism, but IANAL. Getting the correct legal advice would probably cost us too much anyway. It isn't as if we experience this problem every day, so I am tempted based on the advice I was given last time ...
[19:01:31] <janrinok> ... to suggest that we just avoid the issue for the present
[19:03:16] <janrinok> charon, I think that your response to the comment that you linked to is correct for the time being
[19:04:29] <cmn32480> ^^ what he said
[19:05:55] <janrinok> If (when) someone else tests this in a US court then we might be able to rethink the suggestion - but I'd rather someone else took that risk rather than SN
[19:06:03] <charon_> agreed
[19:09:08] <charon_> i figured that would be the right answer. but i also didn't feel comfortable assuming it
[19:09:40] <janrinok> np - good advice and a good decision
[19:11:54] <charon_> that FNG, always doing the right thing...
[19:12:33] <janrinok> ... but we are still watching you closely, for that moment when you stumble ...
[19:18:53] <charon_> so you can attack me like wolverines, i know
[19:18:59] <janrinok> yup
[19:23:05] <charon_> your water balloon story is a shoo-in for the ig-nobel prize
[19:23:31] <janrinok> well, it is really marty's sub, but I get what you mean
[19:55:19] <janrinok> time for me to be on my way
