[03:34:53] <charon> as long as it's not congress
[03:36:14] <cmn32480> that's less than progress or regress
[03:36:19] <cmn32480> it's more useless
[03:36:41] <takyon> at least it could be sexual
[03:37:02] <cmn32480> well... I'm getting fucked if that counts
[03:37:15] <takyon> who's counting?
[03:37:21] <cmn32480> not me

[03:49:09] <charon> i keep trying to talk my boss into letting me order a 55 gal drum of motor oil instead of quart bottles
[03:49:25] <takyon> have you guys seen the 55 gallon drum of lube that amazon sells?
[03:49:26] <charon> it's cheaper, and would only take a year or so to use up
[03:49:29] <cmn32480> that's a lotta 5W-30
[03:49:40] <cmn32480> Commit asatge passed
[03:49:43] <cmn32480> WOOT!

[03:50:30] * cmn32480 points to the potty again
[03:50:53] <charon> takyon: that is a whole lotta intimate pleasure lube

Whether you’re planning a disastrous office prank or getting a really big finger through a really tiny ring, the 55 Gallon Drum of Passion Natural Water-Based Lube is perfect for you! Don’t get caught in an apocalypse without it!"
[03:51:36] <cmn32480> and on sale!
[03:51:42] <cmn32480> only $1500
[03:51:47] <takyon> "You may never run out of lube again! Size: 55 gallons. Note: Includes pump. Ships via freight due to weight limit."
[03:51:52] <takyon> You MAY never run out of lube
[03:52:02] <takyon> lol
[03:52:05] <cmn32480> 2oz
[03:52:06] <cmn32480> 4oz
[03:52:09] <cmn32480> 55 gallon
[03:52:16] <cmn32480> they missed a size or two
[03:52:32] <takyon> it says there are 10 sizes
[03:52:37] <takyon> you have to click on the "..." I think
[03:53:20] <cmn32480> yeah
[03:53:21] <takyon> yeah it also has 8, 16, 34, 34x2, 34x3, 34x4, 34x5

[03:53:48] <charon> disastrous office prank it is
[03:53:50] <takyon> speak for yourself

[03:55:45] <takyon> Uranium Ore
[03:56:12] <takyon> "License Exempt - low radioactivity Uranium ore sample size and CPM activity will vary."
[03:56:26] <takyon> I wonder what happens when you dump uranium ore in 55 gallons of lube
[03:56:42] <takyon> it will only cost me several hundred dollars to find out
[03:56:54] <cmn32480> amazon carries some weird shit
[03:57:12] <cmn32480> that 55gallon drum of lube ins't prime eleigable either
[03:58:08] <takyon> yeah... because it ships by freight
[03:58:37] <cmn32480> LTL ain't cheap
[03:59:08] <cmn32480> it IS prome eligible!
[03:59:17] <cmn32480> from a different seller
[03:59:29] <cmn32480> costs $10 more

[05:06:32] <cmn32480> my first story went live on March 28 2015
[05:06:38] <takyon> if you are in this channel, you are probably an editor. Or a miscreant
[05:06:42] <cmn32480> for time serverd?

[05:11:09] <Bender> karma - typo: 1
[05:19:56] <takyon> I want to find the recent article (2 months) about Congress authorizing FBI/govt hacking
[05:21:33] <charon> published here?
[05:22:27] <takyon> http://www.reuters.com
[05:22:28] <exec> └─ 13FBI to gain expanded hacking powers as Senate effort to block fails
[05:22:30] <takyon> nah i just needed any copy
[05:24:28] <charon> The Senate met at 4:30:02 p.m. in pro forma session, and adjourned at 4:30:32 p.m. until 10 a.m., on Friday, December 30, 2016.
[05:24:47] <charon> nice, 30 seconds in session. seeya friday!
[05:26:54] <takyon> wtf
[05:28:40] <nick> clock in, get paid, clock out
[05:29:15] <charon> i can only assume pro forma session means everyone is on vacation and they just turned the lights on to say "yep, still not here"
[05:31:02] <nick> hah
[05:31:12] <nick> it's quite amusing really
[05:31:25] <nick> 'The officially stated purpose for pro forma sessions is to comply with Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution, which prohibits either chamber of Congress from adjourning for more than three consecutive calendar days without the consent of the other chamber. '
[05:31:39] <charon> hahah
[05:31:47] <nick> so it is a clock in, get paid, clock out... in keeping with the letter of the law, although perhaps not the spirit
[05:31:59] <charon> we didn't adjourn!
[05:33:03] <nick> they just leave the keys under the door mat and someone has to sign everyone in every few days
[05:33:29] <charon> Diamond Joe Biden was here
[05:40:16] <nick> is biden going to keep hanging around in the next administration, assuming not actually in it
[05:41:02] <charon> nope. he goes out with the president. i recall hearing him say he was going to run in 2020 though
[05:41:39] <nick> i assumed he'd be out like that, but wasn't sure if he'd hang around the DNC or whatever
[05:41:53] <nick> taking his 'i told you so' opportunities
[05:42:05] <takyon> Biden can't win in 2020
[05:42:23] <takyon> the guy needs to pack his bags and continue mourning
[05:43:01] <nick> i find it highly unlikely biden 2020
[05:43:07] <charon> well, the DNC is bureaucrats/campaign management rather than elected officials. and i doubt biden would want to join them anyway
[05:43:13] <nick> and if the D's have no one better by then, even more reason why he wont win
[05:43:57] <charon> you're probably right. plus he is 74 now
[05:44:12] <nick> he was elected VP twice, i don't think he needs to ask for approval anymore, just be an elder statesman kind of thing
[05:44:14] <charon> pushing 80 is pretty late to be on the campaign trail
[05:45:00] <nick> and surely for 2020 we must be getting ready for Kanye West's first presidential campaign
[05:45:16] <charon> Jon Stewart
[05:46:06] <nick> somehow that seems worse
[05:46:57] <charon> if the US wants a TV personality, we could certainly do worse than Stewart/Colbert
[05:48:04] <nick> i'd argue you already have done
[05:48:31] <charon> yes indeedy
[05:51:22] <mrpg> It's late. Good night have fun.

[18:15:24] <nick> hey janrinok
[18:15:35] <janrinok> how's your Christmas going?
[18:23:03] <nick> still eating the chocolate
[18:23:08] <nick> how about yours?
[18:24:34] <janrinok> enjoyable but very tiring - an it goes on until the 4th of Jan. S has enjoyed most of it but is now very tired and it has not been helped by the disruption to her routine. But we have eaten well, received lots of pressies, and had the odd beer or two
[18:25:09] <cmn32480> no normal beers? just odd ones?
[18:25:17] <cmn32480> given your personality, I suppose that fits
[18:25:24] <janrinok> well I think 17 is odd
[18:25:29] <janrinok> ... per day
[18:25:39] <cmn32480> prime-arily, yes
[18:25:44] <janrinok> very good!
[18:25:59] <nick> sounds like a good time was had, although perhaps an equal amount of time will be needed to recover
[18:26:58] <janrinok> probably more, now that I think of it

[18:30:16] <janrinok> we've had turkey, ham, chicken and lamb over the last few days - although I am only responsible for cooking one of them
[18:30:29] <cmn32480> so you HAVE gotten a break!

[19:12:25] <Fnord666> Too soon?
[19:12:28] <janrinok> not here it isn't - it has been on the tv for a day
[19:12:33] <cmn32480> from the only-pay-for one-funeral dept.
[19:12:40] <Bytram> link text not updated, but storytitle is now: "Actress Debbie Reynolds Dies A Day After Daughter Carrie Fisher's Death"
[19:12:54] <Fnord666> the buy one get one half off dept?
[19:13:10] <Bytram> form the 2016-REALLY-sucked dpe.
[19:13:11] * janrinok doesn't think it is news or for our site - but that is only my opinion. Does every celeb now get an SN obit?
[19:13:45] <cmn32480> i tend to agree.. Debbie Reynolds, while famous, matters not to the science, technology or sci-fi community
[19:13:48] * Fnord666 thinks Carrie Fisher's tie to the SW universe bestows upon her special treatment
[19:14:00] <Bytram> maybe an update to the story we did on carrie fisher (aka princess leia) passing?
[19:14:20] <Fnord666> Debbie Reynolds, maybe not other than the timing coincidence
[19:14:20] <janrinok> personally, I wouldn't bother, but it's your decision
[19:14:24] <Bytram> Fnord666++ my thoughts, too
[19:14:24] <Bender> karma - fnord666: 1
[19:14:52] <Bytram> is why I am discussing here -- other's thoughts?
[19:15:20] <cmn32480> I don't really think it newsworthy
[19:15:23] <cmn32480> for us
[19:15:43] <cmn32480> woudl we care if she wasn't carrie fisher's mother?
[19:16:05] <Bytram> prolly not... bu sice she *was*
[19:16:06] <Fnord666> I don't think so.
[19:16:11] <Bytram> since*
[19:16:28] <Fnord666> question is, has the CArrie Fisher story already played out?

[19:17:02] <Fnord666> If we do it as an update, other than a historical view will it spark any new conversation?
[19:17:12] <janrinok> hell, we've already had a tribute to Debbie Reynolds aired today!
[19:17:20] <nick> my 2c is it's not that relevant
[19:18:12] <Fnord666> My opinion is that if it's not worthy of a stand alone story, then I wouldn't do it at all.
[19:18:32] <janrinok> tend to agree with that, too
[19:18:39] <cmn32480> same
[19:19:32] <Fnord666> So it sounds like we agree to pass on it?
[19:19:59] <janrinok> think so
[19:20:26] <Bytram> i'm okay with passing on running a new story; should we update the orig one to not here mom died the next day?
[19:20:44] <Bytram> s/not/note/
[19:20:45] <exec> <Bytram> i'm okay with passing on running a new story; should we update the orig one to note here mom died the next day?
[19:20:47] <Fnord666> cmn32480 - thoughts?
[19:20:53] <janrinok> I wouldn't - I agree with Fnord666's view above
[19:21:09] <nick> it'd say it's ok to update it, but not to fast-forward
[19:21:35] <Bytram> nick: forgotz tzo mention that -- I id NOT intend to FF it.
[19:22:14] <Fnord666> I would like to come back to what that is later in the discussion of that's ok.
[19:23:33] <cmn32480> FF? Fast Forward - update the story and put it back in the queue at the current date and time to allow for additional comments
[19:23:42] <Fnord666> I don't think it would hurt anything to add an update without FF if desired. Strictly optional in my opinion though.
[19:23:58] <Bytram> brb dishes
[19:24:14] <Fnord666> cmn32480 - that was my guess but wanted to be sure and when we would do that.
[19:24:25] <Fnord666> Bytram - ok and stop calling me that.
[19:25:24] <cmn32480> we generally only do it if there is a story that is an ongoing news story...
[19:25:51] <Fnord666> makes sense
[19:26:17] <cmn32480> or if we have a major discussion of a site change happening that we wnat to make sure is publicized
[19:26:33] <cmn32480> the site name change vote story got the FF treatmwent several times
[19:26:52] <cmn32480> but that is going back a loooooong time
[19:27:57] <Fnord666> Sure, that makes sense as well.
[19:28:47] <cmn32480> it is a rather unusuall occurrance for us
[19:29:28] <nick> only really used recently for ongoing terrorism events i believe
[19:29:41] <Fnord666> I didn't recall seeing it happen.
[19:29:52] * cmn32480 thinks nick is correct
[19:31:49] <Bytram> as there is no clear consensus, I am fine with no FF
[19:50:12] <Fnord666> So post an update to the original story, queue the submission as a story with no display so the submitter still gets credit, and leave the display date on the original story untouched?
[19:50:29] <cmn32480> correct
[19:52:39] <Fnord666> I guess we'll have to see what martyb does with it. He's been in the story 7m now.

[19:55:55] <Bytram> *it
[19:58:03] <Bytram> do with it as you will
[19:58:57] * cmn32480 aligns the orbital nukes
[20:03:28] * janrinok sets phasers to destroy
[20:03:34] <Fnord666> So I guess I'm a bit slow. Bytram is martyb?
[20:03:40] <janrinok> yup
[20:03:47] <cmn32480> correct
[20:03:50] <cmn32480> nick is n1
[20:03:58] <Bytram> lol! there's a story behind that
[20:04:00] <Fnord666> Well that explains a whole lot of my confusion.
[20:04:05] <cmn32480> janrinok is older than dirt
[20:04:14] <janrinok> well, most dirt
[20:04:22] <Bytram> way back in he very early daysof the site, there were some problems with IRC
[20:04:24] * cmn32480 is an expert typist
[20:04:26] <Fnord666> I haven't seen "older than dirt" log on lately.
[20:04:41] <Bytram> there were just way too many people whose nick starteds with the letter
[20:04:41] <Bytram> "M"
[20:04:58] <Bytram> so there was a command that NOBODY could have a nick that started with "M"
[20:05:22] <Fnord666> ok, I see where this is going
[20:05:25] <Bytram> tab completion gets really interesting with people jpoining and laving all the time
[20:05:36] <Bytram> so, I reversed my nick from martyb to be bytram
[20:05:38] <Fnord666> nad I'm even dumber than I thought.
[20:05:46] <Bytram> which, btw, is amazingly apropos
[20:05:59] <Bytram> I first used a computer in 1972
[20:06:26] <Bytram> "Byte" and "RAM" are, shall we say, things I am not unfamiliar with.
[20:06:41] <Fnord666> nice
[20:07:09] <Bytram> that they fit together to become my new nick, with no prior thought or awareness of same, was pretty cool
[20:07:09] <Bytram> at least *I* found it so
[20:07:29] * janrinok notes that it looks like cmn32480 taught Bytram all he knows about typing - it took over 7 seconds to complete the course
[20:07:56] <janrinok> 'jpoining' and 'laving' ...
[20:08:17] * janrinok notes that, even worse, we all understood it!
[20:08:24] <Fnord666> I firmly believe that cmn32480's typing skills are related to manual typewriters and a desire to not jam the keys together.
[20:08:28] <nick> if i wasnt in the shower, all those pings would have annoyed me ;)
[20:08:45] * cmn32480 needs eye bleach to unsee nick in the shower
[20:08:46] <Bytram> coulkd it be I a *quick* study
[20:08:57] <janrinok> nope - apparently not
