[05:08:38] <Fnord666> hey charon
[05:08:42] <Fnord666> good evening
[05:08:52] <charon> hiyo Fnord666, how is you?
[05:09:02] <Fnord666> good. You?
[05:09:22] <charon> not bad. slow night
[05:09:40] <charon> you don't by chance know what's up with bytram?
[05:10:05] <Fnord666> I do not. I haven't heard anything today and there was little info yesterday.
[05:10:15] <Fnord666> did cmn32480 hear back from him via email?
[05:10:23] <charon> k. no, he has not
[05:10:36] <charon> nor a reply to a text he sent
[05:11:59] <Fnord666> hmmm.
[05:12:11] <charon> well, we can only wait and see
[05:12:31] <Fnord666> yup
[05:12:39] <Fnord666> now to go see why you are a govt agent
[05:12:43] <charon> lol
[05:13:40] <Fnord666> was that in the pedo story?
[05:13:44] <charon> yes
[05:15:10] <Fnord666> lol
[05:15:15] <charon> right?
[05:15:27] <charon> you get tarred with that brush too
[05:16:00] <charon> except i guess you've been more active on your account than i was
[05:16:10] <Fnord666> i know. what a load of caca for a 4 digit UID
[05:17:06] <Fnord666> His tinfoil hat is o ntoo tight
[05:17:36] <charon> i was going to continue, but... there's no logic he would accept as proof
[05:17:38] <Fnord666> oh well. probably be called a lot worse down the road
[05:17:43] <charon> yeah
[05:21:30] <Fnord666> did you say it was a quiet day at work?
[05:21:48] <charon> oh no, here in editing land. day off today from work
[05:22:32] <Fnord666> even better
[05:23:22] <charon> i'm not sure if i ever asked what you do for a job?
[05:24:07] <Fnord666> I'm not sure if you did either.
[05:24:18] <charon> fine, make it tough on me
[05:24:31] <charon> say, Fnord666, what do you do for work?
[05:24:46] <Fnord666> I develop software for a real time transaction processing system that handles credit and debit card traffic.
[05:25:21] <Fnord666> We handle the part between the acquirer and the card issuer.
[05:25:23] <charon> sounds like the sort of thing you absolutely do not want to screw up
[05:25:31] <Fnord666> Quite.
[05:26:12] <Fnord666> I work with a lot of the cryptographic equipment that's used to encrypt the transactions in flight.
[05:26:17] <charon> is it not a solved problem by now though?
[05:27:11] <Fnord666> Nope. Look at EMV and all of the new cryptography involved in processing those transactions for example.
[05:28:01] <Fnord666> Then there's always audit, compliance, maintenance updates ....
[05:28:26] <charon> i guess so. i've had chip readers at my POS for over a year, so i guess i still have a skewed idea of how widespread adoption is
[05:29:25] <Fnord666> It's an ongoing sort of thing.
[05:29:33] <Fnord666> A lot more common now
[05:29:57] <Fnord666> s the ATM skimming story mentioned though, ATMs and fuel pumps are going to be last.
[05:31:10] <charon> yeah. the little independant atms in convenience stores will kick and scream all the way
[05:32:05] <Fnord666> Cheaper to probably replace it
[05:34:03] <charon> interesting work, though way over my head. did you go to school for CS?
[05:34:38] <Fnord666> I did.
[05:35:26] <Fnord666> Always loved programming. Found a lot of interesting stuff in cryptography and number theory.
[05:36:29] <Fnord666> I was teaching in the evenings while I was still going to college and one of the more senior programmers at my work was a student in my class.
[05:36:46] <Fnord666> He asked if I wanted to stop by for an interview.
[05:37:11] <charon> nice
[05:37:15] <Fnord666> Took the job in '93 and I've been there ever since.
[05:37:41] <charon> very cool to have a job that intersects with your actual interests
[05:37:50] * charon is slightly jealous
[05:38:56] <Fnord666> Sometimes it just works out.
[05:39:44] <Fnord666> although it's still 80% tedious stuff and 20% interesting stuff most weeks
[05:40:26] <Fnord666> We do a lot of paperwork to make sure every i is dotted and every t is cross some audit time.
[05:40:36] <Fnord666> s/some/come/
[05:40:37] <exec> <Fnord666> We do a lot of paperwork to make sure every i is dotted and every t is cross come audit time.
[05:40:40] <charon> oh i bet
[05:42:43] <charon> are you a team lead or manager?
[05:43:49] <Fnord666> I have been both in the past. At this point I am a "Principal Systems Engineer" or some such caca.
[05:44:00] <charon> heh
[05:44:19] <Fnord666> It changes from year to year. SAme job, same desk, different label
[05:44:52] <charon> i had a friend in college who worked coding video games. he loved it and was so good at it he got promoted to team lead. which meant he hardly ever got to code because he was wrngling people
[05:45:50] <Fnord666> That's pretty much what I did as well. I'm too hands on to sit back that much.
[05:46:55] <Fnord666> So I went back to programming, etc. Fortunately the company recognizes and supports people who want that as a career path.
[05:47:10] <Fnord666> Rather than management as the only way up.
[05:47:13] <charon> good. keep people where their strength is
[05:51:06] <Fnord666> Our senior technical management came up through the ranks though so they have a good grasp of how to do that.
[05:52:37] <charon> man, this gun story. so much sniping and name-calling
[05:54:10] <Fnord666> I'll have to check it out. Did you expect anything less though? There aren't enough mod points in the world to quell the flames I'm guessing.
[05:54:25] <Fnord666> and very cure re "sniping"
[05:54:31] <Fnord666> s/cure/cute/
[05:54:32] <exec> <Fnord666> and very cute re "sniping"
[05:54:34] <charon> no, i figured it would explode
[05:54:54] <charon> oh god... i did not even notice the pun. i'm sorry
[05:55:03] * charon hangs his head
[05:55:27] <Fnord666> you should be punished
[05:55:47] <Fnord666> maybe a few days in a punitentiary
[05:55:57] * charon wears the punster sandwich board of shame
[05:57:15] <Fnord666> lol
[05:58:03] <Fnord666> well, it's going o n1am here so I better get going. talk to you tomorrow.
[05:58:15] <charon> take care, seeya later
[05:58:23] <charon> ~gnight Fnord666
[05:58:24] * exec brazenly offers a tinfoil hat of surprise buttsex to Fnord666
[05:58:32] <charon> uhh... sorry
[05:58:46] <Fnord666> ~gnight charon
[05:58:47] * exec hurriedly cyberbullies a shitton of windows 3.11 for workpoops at charon
[05:58:50] <Fnord666> lol
[05:59:21] <Fnord666> apparently exec has gone scatalogical this morning.
[05:59:49] <Fnord666> good night.
