[00:24:15] <mrpg> BTW the topic of the squirrels is "security".
[00:48:45] <mrpg> I did the oracle submission, but I put "The Mighty Buzzard informs us of a story:" instead of mrplow.

[03:20:49] <charon> meh
[04:14:31] <Fnord666> howdy editorial!
[04:15:02] <charon> hi Fnord666
[04:15:45] <Fnord666> How's everyone tonight?
[04:15:59] <charon> meh
[04:16:05] <charon> and you?
[04:16:44] <Fnord666> not bad. Need to move a software update later tonight for work, but that's it.
[04:17:06] <Fnord666> How did your customer project go. Done yet?
[04:17:20] <charon> it is just setting it loose? or do you have to be there to monitor it?
[04:18:27] <Fnord666> move the update this eve. Monitor it tomorrow morning when the daily run occurs. Verify the results.
[04:19:14] <Fnord666> we do most of our code updates in the 3am - 6am window unless it's for a customer in a significantly different time zone.
[04:20:03] <charon> oh that thing. not sure if i mentioned yesterday that some of the pieces were missing from the box. so i made new ones to replace them. she called after i left and said to take it apart and she was going to return it. so my work was for nothing
[04:20:54] <charon> plus the $15 in screws to put it together
[04:22:07] <Fnord666> bummer.
[04:22:24] <Fnord666> It was a nice thing though that you did.
[04:22:55] <charon> i try
[04:24:54] <charon> my son (6th gr) had a band concert tonight. i think you probably know that 6th gr bands are not very good. but he likes playing, so i'm happy for him
[04:25:50] <Fnord666> That's cool.
[04:26:16] <Fnord666> I wish I had done more with music as a kid.
[04:26:54] <charon> i never had the chance because it cost too much to rent an instrument. i'm glad he's into it
[04:34:31] <Fnord666> It gets better.
[04:34:49] <Fnord666> and then marching band comes along.
[04:36:01] <charon> then all the stories about naughty things happening at band camp
[04:36:51] <Fnord666> lol
[04:37:03] <Fnord666> at least it wasn't an Oboe
[04:45:42] <Fnord666> well crap
[04:46:32] <Fnord666> tried opening Bytram's QA Engineer story and I'm getting encoding/compression errors between the server and the browser
[04:46:55] <charon> that's interestingly odd
[04:48:40] <Fnord666> both firefox and chrome barf on it.
[04:49:11] <Fnord666> and it looked promising as a humorous take on QA testing
[04:49:42] <Fnord666> but can't have readers getting errors on the page, so back into the pool it goes.

[04:55:05] <Fnord666> does it ever say anything else?

[04:55:10] * exec points at Bytram
[04:55:37] <Fnord666> although it was Bytram's submission...
[04:57:57] <charon> no, that's the joke. it only ever points at Bytram
[04:58:12] <charon> the google cached version loads
[04:59:27] <Fnord666> Interesting
[05:00:48] <Fnord666> You have a good evening and hopefully a better day tomorrow. I've got a late night / early day tomorrow.
[05:01:02] <charon> cheers, take care
[05:01:08] <Fnord666> you too.
[05:01:30] <Fnord666> PS congrats on 200+ articles!
[05:01:46] <charon> thanks. it's just a number though
[05:01:50] <Fnord666> yup
[05:02:52] <Fnord666> better 50 good articles than 100 crappy ones
[05:03:23] <Fnord666> gnight
[05:03:28] <charon> wait, i'm supposed to read the articles?
[05:03:31] <charon> gnight
[05:06:35] <nick> gnight
[05:06:40] <nick> charon++
[05:06:41] <Bender> karma - charon: 14
[05:07:09] <charon> hiyo nick
[05:07:32] <nick> how is life for charon
[05:08:23] <charon> tired, slightly surly. can't really concentrate on anything. overall, i give it a grade of meh
[05:08:38] <charon> how are you tonight?
[05:09:41] <nick> slight headache but pretty good
[05:10:22] <nick> i did the cooking this evening and it turned out pretty good, so i'm happy about that
[05:11:27] <charon> as american as it is, i'm not sure pouring mountain dew and doritos into a blender and pureeing really counts as cooking
[05:12:11] <nick> i don't think i'd have got away with that
[05:12:29] <charon> no, prolly not. what did you make?
[05:12:36] <nick> chicken curry with rice
[05:12:45] <nick> traditional british dish
[05:12:49] <charon> sounds good
[05:12:50] <nick> ;)
[05:12:55] <charon> heh
[05:13:04] <charon> with extra spice?
[05:13:28] <nick> was a medium on the spice scale
[05:14:16] <nick> i'm not used to cooking for other people so it was kind of stressful having to prepare something properly for other people
[05:14:52] <charon> did they attempt to help? or did you shoo them away like a good chef?
[05:16:42] <nick> i did it while they were at work so i could do it without spectators
[05:17:41] <charon> wise. people watching is kind of annoying to me. unless they are actually helping
[05:18:14] <nick> its hard enough for me using someone else's kitchen without them over your shoulder
[05:19:10] <nick> everyone has their own way of doing things, especially in their own kitchen... the certain pots, pans, chopping boards and utensils for things
[05:19:28] <nick> i was congratulated on using the 'right' one for the rice
[05:20:17] <charon> lol
[05:21:39] <charon> when my father-in-law visited he would always put stuff away in the wrong places. took a week to find it all and put it back right
[05:22:11] <nick> yeah, thats why i dont put shit away after doing the dishes here
[05:22:17] <nick> because im going to do it wrong
[05:22:20] <charon> yep
[05:23:39] <charon> but good on you for doing the dishes. some houseguests just don't get it
[05:24:14] <nick> i try to help out where i can
[05:27:54] <charon> man, the Mandela Effect people are just weird sometimes
[05:29:29] <nick> the what
[05:29:41] <charon> uh...
[05:30:34] <charon> people who remember things incorrectly, and think that their memories are proof that either history has changed or they have slipped into an alternate universe
[05:31:42] <charon> named because some of them claim to distinctly remmeber Nelson Mandela dying in the 1990s
[05:31:43] <nick> they think their memory is infallible?
[05:32:06] <charon> yes
[05:32:42] <nick> never heard the term before, but that's interesting
[05:32:53] <charon> it's a whole thing
[05:33:20] <nick> reading on it now
[05:34:50] <nick> i hate relying on my memory
[05:35:26] <nick> don't trust it at all, more merging of memories than anything else though
[05:37:06] <charon> yeah, i know memory is very unreliable
[05:38:49] <nick> recently i had an example of this... talking to a friend and having this memory of being a kid on vacation and swimming with dolphins but i really didn't trust my memory of it so i had to ask my mum the next time i spoke to her
[05:39:40] <nick> it turns out i did, but it feels like a really stupid question to ask 'did i swim with dolphins one time?'
[05:39:48] <charon> heheh
[05:40:21] <charon> i've heard similar stories going the other way. a memory turns out to never have happened
[05:43:24] <nick> yeah, i assume sometime that's a case of people's fantasies turning into crutches, creating false memories to feel better about yourself
[05:48:18] <charon> or the brain is an organ of mystery that lies to us constantly
[05:51:40] <nick> too true
[05:56:57] <charon> i like optical illusions; i think it's neat the way the brain optimizes information input in ways we can trick. until you realize the flip side which is that it's lying and you really have no way of seeing unfiltered 'reality'
[06:02:00] <nick> the brain is very powerful but quite difficult to maximize the potential
[06:03:28] <nick> not using it well can cause all kinds of damage, and as you say comes with consequences regardless
[06:04:03] <charon> i know i don't maximize mine. poor brain
[06:04:51] <nick> utilize would be a better choice of words than maximize
[06:05:23] <nick> it's depressing to me, how many people don't get the opportunity or time to use theirs
[06:05:42] <nick> so much energy focused so narrow and draining directions
[06:06:46] <charon> yeah. who knows how many potential scientists or mathematicians are trapped in a poor country, or in the middle of a war?
[06:07:48] <nick> even those who are utilizing it, not necessarily in productive ways
[06:08:49] <nick> about 80% of the R&D that has gone into cars for many many decades has had talented people fucking around with stupid shit
[06:09:14] <charon> agreed there.
[06:09:34] <charon> people want a car with lots of gadgets and screens, right?
[06:10:32] <nick> https://en.wikipedia.org(J70)
[06:10:33] <exec> └─ 13Toyota Land Cruiser (J70) - Wikipedia
[06:11:50] <nick> one day i'll manage to buy one
[06:12:28] <charon> looks pretty dependable
[06:14:05] <nick> been around for a long time, they're about as reliable as a car gets
[06:16:37] <nick> i have had the gadgets, and i don't want them
[06:17:22] <charon> unfortunately, the gadgets came with the car i wanted. but i rarely use any of them
[06:17:39] <nick> i complained about the chinese rental car... but the new rental cars in the uk that are all buttons for parking brake and start
[06:17:53] <nick> buttons or screens for everything
[06:18:10] <charon> buttons on the steering wheel
[06:18:19] <charon> integration with your phone
[06:18:59] <nick> i have that stuff on my car, but no screens or electronic parking brake
[06:19:22] <charon> i especially dislike the shifter on mine
[06:19:46] <nick> i recall you said what car you have, but i forget?
[06:19:54] <charon> a nissan leaf
[06:20:46] <charon> don't recall what the shifter is called, but instead of a lever that stats in one place, you move the shifter and it bounces back to center
[06:20:54] <nick> ah yeah, all electric auto but still a bad shifter?
[06:21:14] <nick> wasn't that the thing that jeep made the news over a while back?
[06:21:18] <charon> yes
[06:21:27] <nick> the memory works!
[06:21:30] <charon> hah
[06:21:41] <charon> the think that got Anton Yelchin killed
[06:21:45] <charon> thing
[06:21:47] <nick> yeah
[06:21:56] <nick> i remember at the time, thinking i would hate that
[06:22:33] <nick> i drive manual, being european, usually leave a car in gear and using manual parking brake
[06:23:17] <charon> i can't imagine how awful it would be on a manual. my car effectively only has forward and reverse
[06:24:11] <charon> i learned to drive on a manual, but haven't done it in years
[06:25:55] <nick> only living in australia did i have an auto
[06:26:17] <nick> and when i was driving a friend's BMW for a while
[06:27:18] <nick> hated the bmw one
[06:27:51] <charon> never driven one. they have a reputation of being high end
[06:29:19] <nick> i would assume the newer ones are better
[06:30:21] <nick> high end cars are tempting but really not worth it, unless someone else is paying for it as a company car or something
[06:32:47] <charon> it's just a box with wheels to me. since i was interested in electric, the options were fewer
[06:33:02] <nick> they look good, but most built after 03 or 04 from the german luxury brands is pretty ehhh in my experience... they're not bad but you can't really 'feel' the price difference
[06:34:14] <nick> if you're in a situation where an electric car is practical then i don't blame you
[06:35:10] <nick> maybe in 5 years it will look more realistic, id certainly like an alternative energy mode of transport.
[06:35:37] <nick> as much as i like the sound of a good ol' engine
[06:38:40] <charon> it's only practical for me because i live so close to my work
[06:38:55] <charon> if i drove more, it wouldn't work out
[06:41:03] <nick> do you take it on long trips/journeys?
[06:41:38] <charon> haven't yet. i think the longest single trip i've taken is maybe 30 miles, which is roughly 1/3 capacity
[06:44:43] <charon> the one really neat thing about the gps screen is that it shows you the location of charging stations nearby. so if i am on a trip and desperately need a charge, i can find them easily
[06:47:24] <nick> that is handy
[06:48:25] <nick> i'm the sort of person who drives 30 miles with the fuel warning light
[06:48:34] <charon> lol
[07:13:03] <charon> gonna hit the sack a bit early tonight.

[16:31:39] <Bytram> still there!
[16:32:17] <janrinok> if it drops off, give it to cmn32480, his typing is still crap
[16:32:18] <Bytram> there's a 10x8mm or so patch of necrotic tissue on the pad of the middle finger of my left hand...
[16:32:39] <Bytram> but the arm's swelling has abated and it's back to normal size -- YAY!
[16:32:42] <janrinok> any idea what happened?
[16:32:52] <Bytram> otoh, it's shedding like crazy!
[16:33:21] <cmn32480> I keep telling you.. he missed the TP while wiping his butt
[16:34:48] <Bytram> think of having a bad sunburn and then what things are like 3 or so days later
[16:34:48] <Bytram> just that I had very dry skin on my fingertips, one of 'em split open, and some nasty little streppy bugger got in there and took up home
[16:35:15] <janrinok> ohh, nasty
[16:37:49] <Bytram> cmn32480: butt out! ;)
[16:37:49] <Bytram> besides, I wipe with the right, so there!
[16:37:52] <Bytram> nod nod
[16:37:54] <Bytram> while I was hooked up to IVs at hospital, the little buggers were making a dash further up my arm, but didn't make it to the shoulder (whew!)
[16:38:00] <Bytram> arm swelled to about 140% normal size, but is back to normal size, now.
[16:38:01] <Bytram> otoh, looks like a real mess
[16:38:03] <Bytram> fortunately, most of it can be hidden with long sleeves when I am at work, and the
[16:38:07] <Bytram> necrotic tissue can be hid with a simple gauze bandage.
[16:38:09] <Bytram> for the rest, I just pay close attention to my guests at work, smile, and they barely even notice
[16:38:10] <Bytram> but...
[16:38:11] <Bytram> I just came down with sciatica on my right-hand side (RHS)
[16:38:34] <Bytram> can sit just fine, but after walking a couple minutes, is all I can do to stay standing up w/o support.
[16:38:48] <Bytram> which reminds me, i should make some lunch and put an ice pack on it
[16:39:09] <janrinok> well, I wish you a good recovery
[16:39:11] <Bytram> janrinok: now, I hear tell all the visitors have left, but you're still a bit knackered?
[16:39:18] <Bytram> thansk!
[16:40:15] <janrinok> I've got to go and do some cooking. And yes, I'm very knackered, had an appt with the doc yesterday and received medication, strict rest instructions and a whole set of tests to do before my annual cardio appt at the end of the month

[19:39:18] <charon_> i have not watched the news

[19:57:51] * chromas passes the cheese
[19:59:25] <janrinok> There was a woman in Alabama being interviewed on UK TV this am, saying how Trump had already brought jobs back to America since winning the election. The interviewer asked how he had achieved that because, you know, he wasn't at that point the Pres. The interviewee seemed a bit confused at that point ...
[20:00:12] <chromas> Must be the same way he's been increasing racism since winning the election
[20:00:26] <chromas> #ButtMagic
[20:00:37] <janrinok> She then quoted a list of things that had happened - none of which were attributable to Trump. She said UK TV was obviously biased

[23:39:55] <Bytram> what was up with yesterday?
[23:40:42] <charon_> it's a day off normall, but i had to work on very short sleep. being tired just made the rest of the day harder
[23:41:40] <charon_> oh hey, since you guys are longer term editors than me, i have a question
[23:42:51] <Bytram> whazup?

[23:43:09] <Bytram> clicky
[23:44:01] <Bytram> hmmm.
[23:44:04] <Bytram> icky.
[23:44:33] <charon_> it's not untelligible
[23:46:06] <Bytram> maybe add an ed note that this is how we recieved it and
[23:46:19] <Bytram> we did not want to run the risk of introducing errors while cleaning it up.
[23:46:38] <Bytram> As you said, it IS readable.
[23:47:23] <charon_> i was going to correct it, but i am starting to lean towards letting it stand
[23:47:25] <Bytram> there is something else, though
[23:47:39] <Bytram> it *ALL* sits on google servers
[23:48:21] <Bytram> nothing against them, personally, but I personally choose to avoid adding any more info to their dossier and therefore avoid using any of their tools...
[23:48:38] <Bytram> they'll find plenty enough about be without my assisting in the effort
[23:49:17] <Bytram> i won't go so far as using ToR (and putting a big bullseye on myself), but I don't have to actively feed the data munging beast.
[23:49:20] <charon_> huh, i thought it was a static file you import into some other app?
[23:49:44] <Bytram> all the links are to a subdomain of google.com
[23:50:16] <Bytram> well, except the first one
[23:50:26] <Bytram> the rest all go to: calendar.google.com
[23:50:26] <charon_> meh
[23:51:04] <Bytram> as things go, it's minor for most folks, but thought I might as well toss in my $0.02 on it
[23:51:06] <charon_> i can take it. the community already think i'm a shill for other sites
[23:51:12] <Bytram> lol
