[02:00:18] <mrpg> FIRST POST
[02:02:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> frost pist?
[02:04:03] <mrpg> Sure that works too
[02:04:09] <Fnord666> Where does yellow snow come from?
[02:04:16] <Fnord666> Frosty piss!
[02:05:13] <mrpg> ah, vanilla, ok
[02:09:25] <mrpg> Question: how come the steam offline submission has no name?
[02:11:48] -!- Tachyon has quit [Read error: Connection timed out]
[02:13:38] <Fnord666> That is a good question and one I do not have an answer to.
[02:13:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> mrpg, dunno. maybe they put an nbsp in as the name
[02:14:18] <mrpg> aaaaah ok
[02:14:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'd say go ahead and attribute it to AC in that case.
[02:16:49] <mrpg> I'll take the "las vegas renewable
[02:16:54] <mrpg> "
[02:19:03] <Fnord666> enjoy!
[02:19:55] <Fnord666> mrpg - do you know if we are going back to a 90 minute interval on Monday or are we keeping it at 120 min?
[02:22:02] <mrpg> Sorry I don't know :-(
[02:22:43] -!- crutchy_ has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[02:24:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'd assume 90m on non-holiday weekdays but then it's not me having to decide
[02:25:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> personally i'd be down for putting everything to 2h till the first.
[02:26:19] <Fnord666> janrinok did queue a couple of stories Monday morning his time still at 2 hour intervals which made me wonder.
[02:27:12] <Fnord666> Above my pay grade as well. Easily adjusted if needed.
[02:28:50] * TheMightyBuzzard gives everyone six months editorial pay as a christmas bonus
[02:29:48] <mrpg> Thank you!
[02:30:43] <Fnord666> Such a generous and benevolent overlord
[02:31:02] <Fnord666> I'll try not to spend it all in one place! :-)
[02:31:51] <mrpg> I'll spend it in: candies, raspberry pi, and a cloud service in Italy.
[02:32:55] <Fnord666> Is that where you request a specific type of cloud for your outdoor event?
[02:33:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> urg, getting towards bedtime. you lot is on your own.
[02:33:20] <Fnord666> good night TheMightyBuzzard
[02:33:46] <Fnord666> Merry Festivus if I don't talk to you before ten.
[02:33:53] <Fnord666> then
[02:34:18] <mrpg> bye
[02:35:55] <mrpg> yes, it's a cloud provider, clouds can be chosen by color, shape, density, etc. It's cheap.
[02:37:10] <mrpg> Question: what is editors@soylentnews.org? an alias for everyone? a mail list? /dev/null?
[02:38:20] <mrpg> Do we have mail lists? I want in, hit me.
[02:39:01] <Fnord666> I'm not sure. My soylentnews.org email forwarder isn't right now or I would give it a little test.
[02:40:35] <mrpg> I sent an email and didn't receive it back.
[02:43:45] <nick> it's been a while, i think editors probably forwards to janrinok or mrcoolbp (?)
[02:46:04] <mrpg> ok
[02:46:42] <nick> it's been a while since there's been email communication on site matters
[02:46:52] <audioguy> OK, so I got curious since no one seems to know: It is a forward to laminatorx at google.
[02:47:05] <nick> audioguy, should probably change that
[02:47:21] <audioguy> So who wants it? :-)
[02:47:47] <nick> janrinok should have it really
[02:51:47] <audioguy> OK, done. He has it now, wanted or not.
[02:51:58] <mrpg> haha
[02:52:15] <Fnord666> lol
[02:52:21] <audioguy> It's old enough he may notice the spam increase :-)
[02:52:32] <nick> should leave him a message to let him know
[02:52:44] <charon> janrinok said earlier it should be 2 hours through new years
[02:52:45] <audioguy> Its right here.
[02:52:57] <Fnord666> thanks charon
[02:53:25] <Fnord666> audioguy the comments are the documentation?
[02:53:36] <nick> he's still off the vnc apparently, don't know if he reads the logs... i don't
[02:53:56] <audioguy> Yeah :-) I'll mention it next time I see him here.
[02:54:21] <nick> i'm sure exec has a command for it, but fucked if i know what it is
[02:54:25] <Fnord666> Could send an email. "Congratulations, you have been selected to receive, at no cost to you..."
[02:54:48] <charon> laminatorX? that's a bit out of date
[02:54:53] <audioguy> I figure its Christmas, lets not spoil his surprise. :-)
[02:55:02] <nick> charon, no shit
[02:55:34] <nick> audioguy, was just thinking it's a nice xmas gift, for all his hard work
[02:56:13] <Fnord666> Like giving someone a cell phone as a gift? The gift that keeps on giving/taking?
[02:56:41] <audioguy> Yeah, multicolored spam. What a nice surprise!
[02:57:05] <Fnord666> Like getting glitter in your christmas card!
[02:57:36] <charon> ugh, that is a terrible thought
[02:58:24] <Fnord666> I booby-trapped a white elephant gift with glitter this year. It's the little evils in life....
[02:59:24] <charon> everyone please welcome your newest editor, Satan
[03:00:27] * Fnord666 bows humbly
[03:01:11] <Fnord666> charon - you're already planning for next year aren't you?
[03:01:24] <charon> ... maybe
[03:02:07] <charon> damn, looks like every game i've had on my steam wishlist for 6 months is on sale
[03:02:20] <Fnord666> It is Christmas after all.
[03:02:32] <Fnord666> Someone needs a steam gift card.
[03:03:14] <charon> time to buy them all, so they join the legion of unplayed games already in my library
[03:03:39] <charon> wonder if i can transfer it to my kids when i die?
[03:03:57] <Fnord666> a sad but valid question
[03:04:08] <charon> my last words can be, "play them... all... edwfipuerjn"
[03:04:11] <Fnord666> you do have the account info somewhere for them yes?
[03:04:36] <charon> i don't. might not be the worst idea to prepare such things
[03:05:48] <Fnord666> "... and clear my browser history!" - alpha01, "Suicide Squad"
[03:07:16] <Fnord666> If you do online bill payments, etc. it's a good idea to have the account info somewhere so that it can be taken care of if you can't for whatever reason.
[03:07:41] <charon> yar. but that would mean being responsible
[03:07:55] <Fnord666> Well, you gotta adult sometimes.
[03:08:27] <Fnord666> I just try to keep it to a bare minimum
[03:08:34] <charon> crazy talk. i've been just fine being 14 for the last 30 years
[03:08:46] <Fnord666> :-)
[03:15:39] <Fnord666> Apparently Carrie Fisher had a "cardiac event" on a flight and was in critical condition.
[03:15:53] <Fnord666> She is now supposedly in stable condition
[03:15:58] <Fnord666> http://io9.gizmodo.com
[03:18:02] * nick rushes to post as breaking news
[03:18:41] <charon> well after her son shot her husband last year, she must be in fragile shape
[03:19:15] <nick> sorry for breaking any cheap sarcasm meters.
[03:20:18] <charon> sorry for whooshing the chat
[03:21:08] <Fnord666> It's probably not going to end well unfortunately.
[03:21:19] <Fnord666> As someone commented on that site.
[03:21:26] <Fnord666> "fsck you 2016"
[03:22:17] <charon> yep. all of our cultural icons are geeting old
[03:22:56] <charon> imagine in 50 years when justin beiber dies, the kids will be saying the same thing about 2066
[03:23:32] * Fnord666 shudders
[03:26:26] <Fnord666> nick - you planning to run with this end to end or do you need me to do anything?
[03:31:07] <nick> i was being sarcastic
[03:31:47] <nick> unless now we're all being sarcastic, then all the sarcasm meters are going to break
[03:31:52] * nick taps his
[03:32:01] <charon> www.soylentcelebritydeathwatch.com
[03:32:46] <charon> that reminds me, do brits do April Fool's Day?
[03:33:04] <nick> apparently, although i personally do not appreciate it
[03:33:48] * charon takes nick of his list of prank recipients
[03:33:53] <charon> off
[03:34:04] <nick> and on the celebrity death thing, it's only going to become a more prevalent thing... i can't remember who said it/where i read it... but the timings of television and celebrity culture mean more people of note will keep dying
[03:34:10] <charon> jesus, i'm turning into cmn
[03:36:15] <nick> aside from the spelling, it's not the worst thing that could happen
[03:37:39] <Fnord666> You're going to have to work on your misspelling if that's your goal.
[03:38:01] <charon> yeah. i really am just an apprentice
[03:39:14] <Fnord666> nick - I've always felt the best sarcasm leaves people wondering ...
[03:40:34] <charon> you are talking to the +5 Troll, you know
[03:41:04] <Fnord666> +5 keyboard of trolling?

[18:45:12] <nick> hey janrinok
[18:48:03] <janrinok> hi nick
[18:49:41] <nick> how goes
[18:50:06] <janrinok> not bad, everything now ready so my workload is much reduced to almost normal levels
[18:50:31] <nick> did i read somewhere that the inlaws are visiting?
[18:51:04] <janrinok> inlaws staying with us, brother in law and his family staying in a gite about 4 minutes from our front door
[18:51:28] <nick> oh that's really nice, even if it's more work for you
[18:52:21] <janrinok> my p-i-l do a lot around the house despite their age (84) so they are not a problem. Getting the house ready was a bit of additional work but that is all done now
[18:53:44] <janrinok> just had my first beer of Christmas!
[18:53:50] <nick> happy to hear you're getting to spend the holidays with some of the family... i hope you get to enjoy it
[18:53:58] <nick> nice!
[18:54:06] <janrinok> I'm sure that we will - how about at your end?
[18:54:52] <nick> pretty quiet until tomorrow, everyone's still working and such today
[18:55:29] <nick> do have some beers from a local brewery in the fridge which i'm looking forward to
[18:56:22] <janrinok> what profession are your hosts in?
[18:57:23] <nick> just retail... there's not a diverse economy up in these parts
[18:58:12] <janrinok> so they get tomorrow and Monday off?
[18:58:59] <nick> i think so, although i think monday is booked off rather than business being closed
[18:59:39] <janrinok> that's not a long holiday for retail workers then
[18:59:55] <nick> you can't be a hard working american if you take vacation
[19:00:09] <janrinok> lol - sod the quality of life bit ...
[19:01:00] <nick> as i'm sure you've seen, it's a very different work culture in the US compared to pretty much anywhere
[19:01:31] <nick> 'Most Americans only get two weeks off right now. But many don't even take the full two weeks out of fear of losing their jobs. One in four gets no paid vacation at all, not even holidays. Overall, Americans have less vacation time than workers in any other advanced economy.'
[19:01:49] <janrinok> makes me wonder why they do it
[19:02:20] <nick> from the impression i get, you have to be mid-level manager type to really consider taking an actual vacation rather than a couple of days here and there
[19:03:07] <nick> janrinok, i think it's been some very good social engineering which has lead to the cultural norm
[19:03:22] <janrinok> I'm glad I was born where I was
[19:04:02] <nick> same kind of culture that says it's perfectly acceptable for food service people to their income from tips rather than an hourly rate
[19:04:38] <janrinok> ... and still have to pay for your their own medical care
[19:04:51] <janrinok> s/your//
[19:04:53] <exec> <janrinok> ... and still have to pay for their own medical care
[19:05:15] <nick> of course, and treatments for a workplace incident could be several years of your income
[19:05:30] <nick> but you have the right to hire a lawyer and seek compensation
[19:05:39] <janrinok> lol - if you can afford one
[19:06:04] <chromas> We have the right to hire one, not the right to afford one :)
[19:06:12] <janrinok> hi chromas
[19:06:13] <nick> i've heard so many stories from american friends who are low on the economic ladder
[19:06:19] <chromas> 'sup
[19:06:27] <nick> and similar stories from people who found themselves quickly falling down that ladder into the same situation
[19:06:45] <nick> it confounds me
[19:07:04] <nick> chromas, that's the american dream, right?
[19:07:21] <janrinok> Merry Christmas chromas !
[19:07:34] <chromas> you're goddamn right
[19:07:34] <chromas> americanflag'n'eagle.mp4
[19:08:04] <chromas> thanks. We're a day behind. But merry christmas to you though, janrinok, nick & exec
[19:08:32] <janrinok> so you will still be partying when we are nursing our sore heads
[19:09:42] <nick> chocolate milk time
[19:09:52] <janrinok> cup of tea time
[19:10:14] <nick> don't worry janrinok, there's a fresh 12 pack of mtn dew in the fridge
[19:10:14] <janrinok> hell, we Brits know how to celebrate ...?!
[19:10:53] <nick> politely
[19:20:54] <janrinok> what have you got planned for later today?
[19:39:53] <nick> nothing, play computer games probably
[19:39:58] <nick> maybe write something
[19:42:28] <janrinok> have you bought those steam games or have you got others lined up?
