[03:59:56] <cmn32480> gentlemen, let's increas the article spread t 2 hours, since the queu is running short
[04:00:23] <charon> i second that motion
[04:00:29] <n1> charon, there's nothing 'wrong' with it as such
[04:01:16] <n1> but it does present a very narrow view of the incident which is serving as confirmation bias of sorts
[04:01:26] <n1> plays into the 'russia deserved it
[04:01:35] <charon> oh, i'm sorry. not that one

[04:08:27] <cmn32480> same email you had back then?
[04:08:46] <charon> but it's definietely not him because he would not have used my nick in the salutation

[04:20:31] <charon> it has to rebuild the page every time it submits? ugh

[04:21:08] <cmn32480> exactly
[04:22:12] <n1> on my funny-troll comment... the other week i was told by a canadian, quite seriously, that they had banned christmas in canada
[04:22:28] <cmn32480> sometimes it feels like it here
[04:22:38] <cmn32480> or at least the religious overtones fo Christmas
[04:23:05] <n1> it was in the midst of a one way conversation about obama being a muslim and related matters
[04:23:19] <charon> i don't interact with real people in a social way much, but i don't see any of the "war on christmas" that people talk about
[04:23:56] <cmn32480> not christmas specifically... just religion in general
[04:24:22] <n1> i have opinions on christmas, but ive never met anyone who wants to 'ban' it or anything close
[04:24:40] <charon> it is very nearly fully secular these days
[04:25:34] <charon> i'm not religious, but guess i do have a distaste fro people who wear religion on their sleeves
[04:26:19] <n1> people can celebrate christmas or not, if they choose to... but it's not exactly a holiday with it's traditions laid out in the bible
[04:27:18] <n1> it's a relatively modern tradition, especially on the scale that it has been in the last few decades

[18:23:28] <charon_> still +5 troll?
[18:27:01] <nick> yup
[18:27:10] <nick> without karma bonus
[18:36:42] <cmn32480> as I knew would happen.. salesrep asks customer to order in case quantity, customer has no issue with it.
[18:36:48] <cmn32480> #smake salespeople
[18:36:48] * MrPlow smakes salespeople upside the head with a toolbar addon
[18:39:51] <nick> whats the issue, cmn32480 ?
[18:41:38] <charon_> when i order 12 i'll get 144?
[18:41:50] <cmn32480> guy who has been in the business 30 years could not understand why I don't want to break full cases of labels due to the inventory issues that will ineveitably arise from ti
[18:42:10] <cmn32480> original order was for 10k labels (10 rolls)
[18:42:22] <cmn32480> cases are 4 rolls
[18:42:38] <cmn32480> so, full case quantities are 8 or 12
[18:42:58] <charon_> math is hard --barbie
[18:43:31] <cmn32480> for an ongoing print project for a customer (pallet license plates)
[18:43:53] <cmn32480> he didn't want to ask the custoemr to go to full case qunatities, because "it makes us look hard to work with"
[18:45:40] <janrinok> well, you can't just write of the excess that the customer doesn't actually want, so what do you do with them?
[18:45:53] <janrinok> write off*
[18:46:18] <cmn32480> they stay in inventory...
[18:46:29] <cmn32480> until some other nimnob sells a non-case quantity
[18:46:36] <janrinok> but will never get sold because they are not a full box?
[18:46:43] <cmn32480> exactly
[18:47:07] <janrinok> your salesrep needs another smake about the head with a common-sense bat
[18:47:12] <nick> do a sales order to sell them to the salesman who ordered the non-case quantity
[18:47:20] <janrinok> lol
[18:47:31] <charon_> lol
[18:47:47] <cmn32480> so... we only sell full case quantities, unless they REALLY don't want them, in whcih case, they pay for the full case and we only ship what they order adn kepe the remainder as test labels for the repair depot
[18:48:28] <janrinok> nick - that was a really mean and spiteful comment to make - I like it very much!
[18:48:42] <cmn32480> we all said the same thign
[18:49:00] <nick> janrinok, it's the only way they'll learn
[18:50:15] <janrinok> only wish I had thought of it
[18:51:29] <nick> not only does it teach the salesman a lesson, cmn32480 gets some commission out of it.
[18:51:39] <cmn32480> hey!
[18:51:43] <cmn32480> I kinda like taht idea
[18:52:57] <janrinok> time for tea
[18:54:02] * nick drinks mtn dew and ponders
[18:54:04] <charon_> tea? the kind with crustless cucmber snadwiches and dainty cups of earl gray?
[18:54:35] <charon_> perhaps ladyfingers?
[18:56:15] <cmn32480> lotta women w/ stumps in the UK...I mean.. they drink a lot of tea
[18:56:33] <janrinok> nick, would that be a 27 litre mountain dew with free refills, and a box of doughnuts?
[18:57:08] <nick> if only...
[18:57:15] <janrinok> this is just tea with nothing to eat, and good honest tea at that, none of that poncey stuff
[18:57:27] <nick> tetley?
[18:57:32] <janrinok> yep
[18:57:36] <nick> good man
[18:57:49] <janrinok> not bad for France
[18:57:53] <charon_> nick, you're getting more american every time i see you. mountain dew? taco bell?
[18:58:38] <charon_> not that it's bad, mind. just interesting
[19:00:34] <nick> i try to integrate wherever i go
[19:01:01] <nick> got to enjoy the local delicacies
[19:02:32] <cmn32480> do you do differential equations too?
[19:05:43] * charon_ has been whooshed
[19:06:10] <nick> is a math joke i'm pretty sure, and as i'm essentially a high school drop-out...
[19:06:38] <nick> thankfully in the UK it's basically impossible to do so, i get away with it.
[19:07:51] <charon_> oh... integrate. durrrr

[19:08:14] * MrPlow smakes charon upside the head with a dropbear

[19:10:12] * cmn32480 passes the paper towels
[19:13:07] <janrinok> thx
[19:19:31] <cmn32480> gtotta be careful of them dropbears... straight up dangerous
[19:21:13] <charon_> i know it. they look like cute koalas, but have shark teeth

[19:32:11] * cmn32480 thinks crutchy got bit by a drop bear and that is why he hasn't been around
[19:33:33] <charon_> he was on the other night. but he didn't say anything, so it might have been a drop bear using his computer
[19:34:27] <janrinok> P666 has just dropped a load of subs - I'm going to move all of Arthur's to the hold queue
[19:34:40] <charon_> we still doing 2 hr spacing?
[19:34:42] <cmn32480> God Bless P666
[19:35:25] * charon_ looks at story Q. guess not
[19:35:50] <janrinok> no, we should be at 90 mins, have been since Thanksgiving finished
[19:36:08] <cmn32480> thigns were pretty lite last night, so I asked thatwe move to 2 hours.
[19:36:23] <charon_> cmn32480 suggested 2 hrs last night when we were scraping the bottom of the barrel
[19:36:27] <cmn32480> the quantity adn quality of the subs was rather... um.. lacking
[19:36:35] * charon_ coughs
[19:36:36] <janrinok> ah, that's why I was shuffling stories this am - I thought someone had had a brain fart
[19:36:52] <cmn32480> no.. that is the way my brain always smells
[19:36:57] <janrinok> I just grabbed some from Exec and pushed them out
[19:40:00] <cmn32480> in my own defense, /me was falling asleep at the keyboard last night
[19:41:08] <janrinok> np, but with a team of 6-8 active eds we should be able to put something together.
[19:41:22] <cmn32480> you were sleeping

[19:41:35] <charon_> i was there, jerk
[19:41:42] <cmn32480> I tried knocking on the inside of the box.. but nobody heard me...
[19:41:50] <janrinok> hence the puddle
[19:41:56] <cmn32480> that resulted in the first carpet puddle this morning
[19:42:26] <janrinok> well, knocking on the side of a cardboard box in the middle of the night (for me) was bound to fail
[19:43:05] * cmn32480 noticed
[19:53:29] <charon_> janrinok: i have a complaint about the editing page
[19:54:03] * cmn32480 watches janrinok shut down his IRC client for the duration
[19:54:54] <charon_> the rlease time field has space for seconds, but when i change that it reverts to an exact minute.
[19:55:08] <cmn32480> seriously?
[19:55:13] <charon_> i want to release sotries down to the second
[19:55:27] * cmn32480 gives charon_ the fisheye
[19:55:32] <charon_> seriously
[19:55:52] <charon_> well the problem exists
[19:56:07] <charon_> maybe i don't actually want to go down to the second
[19:56:34] <charon_> picosecond
[19:56:39] <cmn32480> please feel free to file a bug report on Github
[19:56:47] <janrinok> OK, but why?
[19:56:52] <charon_> psssh, then TMB will ignore it
[19:56:57] * cmn32480 can't wait to hear what TMB and pj say about this one
[19:57:26] <cmn32480> after the laughter stops, I mean.

[21:17:24] <charon_> hiyo Fnord666
[21:17:41] <Fnord666> hey charon_
[21:18:13] <Fnord666> how's the new charging cord working out?
[21:18:24] <cmn32480> made a puddle of his car
[21:18:56] <charon_> seems ok. it did not explode, and charged properly. i'm going to say that it is a success
[21:19:00] <Fnord666> So a nice ,fast charge rate then.
[21:19:10] <cmn32480> Fnord666 - you are lokoing for his current status?
[21:19:22] <charon_> there's supposed to be a puddle of melter steel under my car, right?

[21:20:47] <Fnord666> shocking behavior
[21:21:02] <cmn32480> this is like an FNG re-volt
[21:21:22] <charon_> i'll just sit and chant my mantra until i feel better. "Ohm... Ohm..."
[21:21:26] <Fnord666> that can get them discharged
[21:21:47] <cmn32480> charon_, Reisitance is Futile
[21:22:05] <Fnord666> I don't know if he has the capacitance for this
[21:22:14] <charon_> i know you get a charge out of this
[21:22:39] <Fnord666> careful or you'll get inducted into something
[21:23:40] <cmn32480> I'll power throuhg this conversation some how
[21:23:58] <Fnord666> Watt?
[21:24:18] <charon_> Joule regret this
[21:24:32] <cmn32480> can we keep this shoret?
[21:24:36] <cmn32480> *short
[21:24:51] <Fnord666> So just once around the circuit?
[21:25:18] <charon_> can we switch topics?
[21:25:41] <Fnord666> or at least fuse them together?
[21:26:05] <Fnord666> We could discuss Romex and Juliet
[21:26:18] <cmn32480> at least we all have a good creative outlet
[21:26:34] <charon_> janrinok will be sad he missed the conversation this has sparked
[21:26:56] <Fnord666> does that mean there was a spark gap for him?
[21:26:58] * cmn32480 is shocked he missed it
[21:27:34] <Fnord666> I think janrinok is much too grounded for this.
[21:27:55] * cmn32480 will stay neutral
[21:28:03] <Fnord666> although the conversation does have potential.
[21:28:35] <charon_> i'm running low on energy, need a snack
[21:29:03] <cmn32480> positively a good idea
[21:30:07] <Fnord666> It's good to not have a negative view on these things.
[21:36:26] <Fnord666> cmn32480 - you ever find a dupe for that Supreme Court news article about patent trolls?
[21:36:33] <cmn32480> nope
[21:37:38] <Fnord666> ok. I didn't either but thought I would check back with you.

[21:44:47] <Fnord666> nevermind i see it
[21:45:30] <Fnord666> Cool. Even a mention for the movie "Her".
[21:46:53] <charon_> that movie is also more than a bit creepy
[21:48:18] <Fnord666> At least for once the AI didn't go all skynet on us
[21:48:43] <Fnord666> You watch season 2 of Mr. Robot?
[21:50:18] <charon_> i have not seen that show. heard good things about it though
[21:50:39] <Fnord666> ok. no spoilers then

[21:51:57] <charon_> for my sanity, i am glad my work blocks that link
[21:53:18] <Fnord666> probably.
[21:57:21] <charon_> i'm pretty sure i am a pessimist on AI. as soon as it's smart enough to bootstrap itself to omniscience, it will swat us like flies

[22:02:51] <Fnord666> charon_ re AI if we build them with shotguns wired to their foreheads then they sure aren't going to take kindly to us, that's for sure.
[22:05:08] <charon_> and it wouldn't help anyway. by the time we realize we need to use the metaphorical shotgun, it would be far too late for it to do anything.
[22:05:30] <charon_> as a wise computer once said: the only winning move is not to play
[22:06:25] <Fnord666> Well now that's the question isn't it. Should we preclude all research that could lead to strong AI?
[22:13:47] <charon_> it really is inevitable by now. too many people working in too many directions. the genie is out of the bottle
[22:14:42] <Fnord666> That's what I think as well. Between that and basement/garage recombinant DNA workshops the human race is probably doomed.
[22:15:51] <charon_> pessimists unite!
[22:24:54] <chromas> nah
[22:25:12] <chromas> we just need to create some AIs to be 'good' then let them built robots to fight each other
[22:27:18] <chromas> Plus if they don't have any qualms about genocide, maybe they'll be willing to play around with eugenics too
[22:27:35] <chromas> Rise of the Robazis
[22:28:46] <Fnord666> question about the drone drug delivery story.
[22:28:57] <charon_> if only we could make a simulation of the world, let it develop AI, and see what happens
[22:29:00] <Fnord666> mobile as the dept?
[22:29:14] <Fnord666> What do you think this reality is?
[22:29:30] <Fnord666> or did you forget the /s at the end?
[22:29:34] <charon_> Fnord666: i blame janrinok for that, i saw it and didn't change
