[00:01:44] <Fnord666> Howdy Bytram. What's up?
[00:01:48] <Bytram> points out similarities between our favicon and that of Bruse Schneier's blog
[00:02:02] <Bytram> last day off afore I go back to work tomorrow
[00:02:18] <Bytram> listening to neighbors coughing up a storm while doing weed
[00:02:34] <Bytram> saw doc this AM and arm is making great progress...
[00:02:45] <Bytram> but have been dignosed with sciatica
[00:02:45] <Fnord666> Wait, who'se doing the weed? Pretty ambiguous sentence....
[00:02:57] * Bytram is fine as long as he stays sitting down
[00:03:01] <Bytram> neighbors
[00:03:13] * Bytram has an apartment
[00:03:14] <Fnord666> ok. just checking
[00:03:17] <Bytram> aka flat
[00:03:24] * Bytram dont'tought that stuff
[00:03:29] <Fnord666> aren't they all flat?
[00:03:34] <Bytram> blegh!
[00:03:43] * Bytram don't touch that stuff
[00:04:06] <Bytram> nope... my building has three storeys
[00:04:09] <Bytram> ;)
[00:04:21] <Bytram> anyway... hunger strikes me... off to seek food
[00:04:24] <Bytram> biab
[00:04:26] <charon_> i get the occasional customer who reeks of weed. and acts like a moron.
[00:04:34] <Fnord666> meh. There's only so many ways to stylize an S.
[00:04:50] * charon_ yells after bytram to have nutricious twinkies
[00:05:07] <charon_> Fnord666: i was thinking exactly the same
[00:05:15] <Fnord666> The great hunter once again strikes out into the bush in search of sustenance.
[00:07:07] <Bytram> the user suggested maybe using SN instead of just S... but I'm still at a MS Paint level... don't dare take a stab at it
[00:07:19] <Bytram> ok this time for sure
[00:09:14] <charon_> what if we made it black. all black. as black as midnight on a moonless night.
[00:09:16] <Fnord666> If you can't generate it from a switch in imagemagick then it's over my head.
[00:09:53] <charon_> a black S on a black background with black highlights and maybe a black unicorn cavorting in a black forest
[00:09:54] <Fnord666> Gonna make it blink while you're at it?
[00:12:29] <Fnord666> ɚ0
[00:12:53] <charon_> or red. red is nice too
[00:13:06] <Fnord666> Doesn't anybody support unicode?
[00:13:29] <charon_> hexchat?
[00:13:31] <Fnord666> &#x25a0;
[00:13:54] <Fnord666> unicode for a black square
[00:16:01] <charon_> should be possible. i've cut/pasted lots of unicode. typing it may be less possible
[00:17:31] <Fnord666> as the kids say, whateves
[00:18:05] <charon_> i can't even
[00:18:44] <Fnord666> really can't decide about the "kill box" story

[00:21:15] <Fnord666> charon - it's the weekend right?
[00:21:39] <Fnord666> guess which story has to run]
[00:21:40] <Fnord666> ?
[00:22:15] <charon_> sex! in! space!
[00:22:25] <Fnord666> got it in one!
[00:22:46] <Fnord666> now does that go in hardware or software for a topic?
[00:22:50] <Bytram> undamped simple harmonic motion
[00:22:54] <charon_> about the killbox one, did runaway read it before submitting?
[00:23:15] <charon_> because it seems diametrically opposed to his worldview as i understand it
[00:23:46] <Fnord666> which is kinda funny in its own way
[00:24:30] * Bytram is still reading
[00:24:33] <charon_> hardware. definitely hardware
[00:24:53] <Fnord666> but not a good enough reason by itself to run it.
[00:25:25] <charon_> oh, hey bytram. when you get a chance, read the notes on the QA blog story you submitted
[00:25:58] <Bytram> the one asking for volunteers?
[00:26:09] <Bytram> oh, nvm THAT one

[00:26:40] <Bytram> hrrrrrm!
[00:27:00] <Bytram> Huh!
[00:28:47] <Fnord666> Bytram browses with Lynx so he didn't encounter the issue
[00:29:30] <Fnord666> charon_ - should I put a teaser question at the bottom of the space story?
[00:29:40] <Bytram> Pale Moon, actually... but that is so strange!
[00:29:55] <charon_> i use pale moon also, got the error
[00:30:08] <Fnord666> isn't that a beer?
[00:30:25] <Fnord666> a cross between blue moon and a pale ale?
[00:30:35] <charon_>  astronauts have neither confirmed nor denied the idea of space masturbation
[00:30:39] <charon_> lol
[00:31:13] <Fnord666> the whole toilet system runs on vacuum. just sayin.
[00:32:45] <charon_> pale moon is like firefox but not as lame
[00:33:19] <Fnord666> Don't set the bar too high...
[00:33:43] <charon_> like Edge but not as lame?
[00:33:51] <Bytram> wrt QA story seems he has an internal server error kicking out a 500 error.
[00:33:52] <Fnord666> there you go
[00:34:14] <Bytram> brb
[00:34:31] <Fnord666> Bytram is probably going to fix it.
[00:34:36] <charon_> 500 is pretty non-explanatory
[00:34:53] <Bytram> 500 ==> He's dead, Jim.

[00:41:00] <Fnord666> the guy's site looks like a treasure trove though.
[00:41:34] <Fnord666> I'm assuming takyon's script runs in pale moon?
[00:42:22] <charon_> with greasemonkey installed, yeah
[00:42:44] <Fnord666> any reason not to use the quickinstall?

[01:27:14] <charon_> it's no worse than soylent
[01:28:22] <nick> a primary concern was being respectful as large groups of the worlds population do not have the same affinity for bacon as we do
[01:29:00] <nick> so it just became an in-joke of sorts, referenced with the occasional bacon related news and dept. titles

[18:08:50] <cmn32480> is ok
[18:08:51] <takyon> Fnord666
[18:08:58] <cmn32480> I was getting all 7 hairs left on my head cut
[18:09:08] <Fnord666> hey takyon
[18:09:11] <takyon> in blokcquotes I just replace the misspelled word with the correct word in brackets
[18:09:21] <takyon> This is [Sparta].
[18:09:44] <takyon> or any other changes to the quoted material, I do the same
[18:10:00] <Fnord666> makes sense
[18:10:09] <Fnord666> that way it's distinguishable
[18:10:17] <takyon> like if I need to pull in some words or the name of an organization because I omitted an earlier paragraph, I put it in the square brackets
[18:10:44] <takyon> so I'm making pulled pork in orange sauce instead of BBQ
[18:11:01] <takyon> I made about 2 gallons of orange "marmalade" (sauce) last week
[18:11:21] <takyon> it only takes about a pint of the stuff to cover 3.5 lbs of this pork
[18:11:23] <cmn32480> noice
[18:11:31] <cmn32480> sounds tasty
[18:11:32] <Fnord666> Hawaiian pork?
[18:11:33] <takyon> all in all I have to figure out a lot of shit to do with this sauce.
[18:11:37] <Fnord666> it does sound good
[18:11:41] <takyon> no. Hawaiian = pineapple
[18:11:54] <takyon> I would call this faux Asian
[18:12:13] <cmn32480> Freeze it
[18:12:30] <Fnord666> 2 gallons?
[18:13:01] <Fnord666> Did you start with 5 gal of juice?
[18:13:23] <takyon> 16 lbs of oranges
[18:13:29] <takyon> it has the peel in it and everything
[18:13:35] <cmn32480> jebus
[18:13:43] <takyon> and I don't need to freeze it because I used a pressure cooker to process it in mason jars
[18:14:00] <takyon> although I think there's enough citric acid that you just need to boil water can it rather than pressure cook
[18:14:24] <takyon> I used 2 bags of 8 lbs oranges each on two occassions
[18:14:34] <takyon> first time I fucked up and it was not thick enough to be called marmalade
[18:14:46] <cmn32480> awesome sauce... if you'll pardon the pun
[18:14:49] <takyon> second time I think I fucked up the same way, but it was significantly thicker
[18:14:51] <Fnord666> lol
[18:15:08] <takyon> I'm drinking already so excuse any typos
[18:15:10] <takyon> #MAGA
[18:16:21] <takyon> it's crazy how much sugar is in the stuff
[18:16:34] <takyon> I think I used about 30 cups of sugar for 8 lbs of oranges. roughly 10 lbs?
[18:17:01] <cmn32480> damn
[18:17:14] <Fnord666> almost a syrup
[18:17:38] <takyon> quite
[18:17:50] <takyon> the recipe also has me boil some habenero peppers in there
[18:17:55] <Fnord666> Does it have pectin then?
[18:17:59] <takyon> they don't stay in, but it adds a little heat
[18:18:13] <takyon> no I didn't add pectin, the recipe doesn't call for it. maybe I should next time
[18:18:16] <Fnord666> a little sweet, a little heat
[18:18:35] <takyon> the first time I made this it actually came out like a marmalade, but I was using half as many oranges so the boiling time was less
[18:18:36] <Fnord666> or a lotta sweet in this case
[18:18:51] <takyon> it uses the natural pectin within the oranges
[18:19:18] <takyon> but I had to use a 4 gallon pot to make this 8 lbs version. so maybe added pectin would be a good idea
[18:19:27] <Fnord666> sure. Just depends on whether you want it to set up like a jam
[18:19:54] <Fnord666> if it's not setting up the way you want then you could try adding some
[18:20:16] <takyon> well i give it to others and I think they want a marmalade, but I just don't care because I use it as a sauce to make orange chicken, or this pulled pork which I think even Trump would find delicious
[18:21:23] <Fnord666> you said you use the peel right?
[18:21:35] <takyon> yeah. maybe 90% of the peel went in
[18:21:52] <takyon> cutting it into smaller bits and boiling it makes it completely edible
[18:22:26] <Fnord666> should be plenty of pectin then
[18:23:14] <takyon> we're talking about an enormous amount of stuff to boil though
[18:23:26] <takyon> the recipe is in the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
[18:23:50] <Fnord666> Cool. PRobably have that on the shelf somewhere
[18:24:15] <takyon> the recipe is for 2.25 lbs of oranges. so for 8 lbs I am multiplying the ingredients by ~3.5
[18:24:56] <takyon> 21.3 cups of water, several habanero chilis, and a whopping 32 cups of sugar
[18:25:15] <takyon> I just poured the whole bags in since 4 lbs = 8 cups
[18:25:24] <Fnord666> Cooking on a restaurant scale
[18:25:31] <janrinok> I'm just catching up with the recipes
[18:25:44] <takyon> if I'm reading that right then I actually used about 16 lbs of sugar
[18:28:07] <janrinok> takyon - that sounds delicious
