[02:27:22] <Fnord666> you're in shape. Round is a shape.
[02:27:23] <cmn32480> abuse?
[02:28:05] <Bytram> you have the wrong syllabification: abuse is: ab-use ... you've got amazing abs, right?

[02:29:34] * cmn32480 empties the dishwasher
[02:30:00] <Bytram> forecastfox says the current temp is 29F and predicts a nighttime low of 32F !?!?
[02:30:34] <Fnord666> It's a great job if you can get it. Doesn't require any accuracy or logic.
[02:30:46] <Bytram> alternate truths abound!
[02:31:14] <cmn32480> drop after midnight
[02:32:07] <Bytram> so even though the sun has been down for several *hours*, it is not yet night?
[02:32:21] <cmn32480> certainly
[02:32:34] <cmn32480> temps can go up after dark
[02:32:41] <cmn32480> get a warm air stream in the atmosphere
[02:33:07] <Fnord666> 1. It's currently night
[02:33:20] <Fnord666> 2. It's currently 29F
[02:33:35] <Fnord666> 3. Predicted nighttime LOW is 32F
[02:33:37] <Bytram> Oh, I *know* that, but the nighttime low would be, umm, the lowest temperature during the night... and it's already colder than what they perdicted what the low would be.
[02:33:38] <Fnord666> 4. ????
[02:33:46] <Bytram> prophet!
[02:33:47] <Fnord666> 5. PRofit?
[02:33:51] <Fnord666> yes!
[02:33:56] <Bytram> hmm
[02:34:00] <Bytram> not PROfit
[02:34:06] <Bytram> more like amateur fit
[02:34:12] <Bytram> ;)
[02:34:34] <Fnord666> Why doctors call what they do a "practice"?
[02:34:43] <Fnord666> Shouldn't they be doing it right by now?
[02:35:29] <Fnord666> and if PRO is the opposite of CON, what is the opposite of PROGRESS?
[02:36:03] <Bytram> one would like to hope, but under the most closely controlled conditions of temperature and pressure, an organism will still do whatever the hell it pleases.
[02:36:21] <Bytram> ok, time to do the dishes; biab
[02:36:54] <Fnord666> talk about an audience walking out...
[02:37:26] <Fnord666> cmn32480 how are ya today?

[04:21:30] <cmn32480> lol;
[04:21:57] <takyon> hall of fame is a sham because it doesn't list my submissions
[04:22:47] <cmn32480> that is a simple code change
[04:22:49] <takyon> also I love how the most visited story is Blackphone... probably some Google magic redirecting people who wanted to buy one to the story

[18:42:58] <nick> as i understand it, OO is bitching about the google cache link
[18:42:59] <nick> ?
[18:43:04] <charon> yes
[18:43:04] <cmn32480> yes
[18:43:37] <charon> an here i am being polite
[18:43:37] <nick> that is the reason i didn't bother editing the story myself, even though i wanted to... that link was awful and i know what OO is like#
[18:43:41] <cmn32480> it is a link that he has to a google cache copy of the story, which is no issue, but he has added all kinds of highlights, etc. to the link that are not in the original source adn are strictly his own
[18:43:44] <nick> so it wasn't worth the energy
[18:43:55] <charon> hah, i adress that in my novel
[18:44:11] <charon> Some on the editing team refuse to even look at them because they are difficult to wrangle. Perhaps that is where I show my "rookie" status because I have the energy to work with them.
[18:44:41] <cmn32480> not refuse... prefer
[18:44:42] <nick> i'll work with his subs, but when you put in links like that, you're just being difficult
[18:45:02] <nick> and it adds fuck all to the story
[18:45:02] <cmn32480> nick: s/difficult/an asshole/
[18:45:06] <cmn32480> damnit
[18:45:16] <cmn32480> ~sed on
[18:45:17] <exec> sed already enabled for 10#editorial
[18:45:17] <nick> hah
[18:45:30] <nick> too slow
[18:45:32] <cmn32480> +
[18:45:56] <cmn32480> I'll be quite honest, I'll look at most anythgin else in the queue before looking at gewg_'s stuff
[18:46:14] <janrinok> gewg/oo either plays by the submission rules, or he doesn't get published. If you want me to make a comment to that effect I will be happy to do so
[18:46:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> even my fart game sub?
[18:46:18] <nick> in my opinion the quality of his subs has gone down
[18:46:32] <cmn32480> TMB - it was a weekend and funny as hell
[18:46:40] <charon> janrinok: no, i have one in the making.
[18:46:51] <charon> don't want the whole team to jump on him
[18:46:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, i kinda wanna play it but i don't wanna hafta get steam working
[18:46:55] <nick> i remember before taking the time because the stories were worth it, and i think the Cuba one counts... but most of them are just crap
[18:47:16] <janrinok> OK, but as EiC I can also tell him to play by the rules
[18:47:41] <nick> and he still doesn't seem to realise using the 'world socialist' website or whatever immediately alienates people from what can be very interesting and valid stories
[18:48:22] <charon> nick: yep. that's why i added the other links at the end
[18:48:22] <janrinok> I have no problem with his politics - we don't all have to be middle of the road
[18:49:21] <nick> janrinok, i agree completely... but you can have the same stance from a more credible and 'professional' source
[18:49:50] <janrinok> hey, if he wants to start from an indefensible position that is his choice :)
[18:50:05] <nick> indeed
[18:50:15] <janrinok> I only object to him criticising the editors for doing their job
[18:50:21] * cmn32480 notes that this is more conversation about the actual editing process adn issues than this channel has seen in a long time
[18:50:25] * charon hugs janrinok
[18:50:37] * cmn32480 hugs S
[18:50:42] <cmn32480> hugs all around!
[18:50:55] <janrinok> S is feeling well-hugged
[18:51:10] <cmn32480> give her an extra for me
[18:51:29] <janrinok> that'll be the third from you this evening
[18:51:37] <cmn32480> third?
[18:51:43] * cmn32480 checks the back scroll
[18:52:04] <janrinok> you hugged S, you then hugs all round, and now you are offering another hug
[18:52:37] <cmn32480> the hugs all around thing was just a comment.. not a command
[18:53:48] <janrinok> too late - she got another hug
[18:54:13] * janrinok had no problem passing on the extra hugs
[18:54:23] <charon> you monster, you would prevent her from getting an extra hug?
[18:54:25] <cmn32480> I retract your hug and substitute my own
[18:54:55] <janrinok> I've been called a monster before - but I blamed her eyesight
[18:55:28] <charon> hmm, so where can i put my novel so y'all can read it without it being public?
[18:56:02] <janrinok> in your journal - it's not very public
[18:56:14] <charon> but it shows on the sidebar?
[18:56:19] <janrinok> I mean, I don't know how many people read your journal....
[18:56:34] <cmn32480> you can delete it as well
[18:56:47] <charon> or do you have to do an extra step to make it show up in the sidebar?
[18:56:57] <cmn32480> edtrain is no logged
[18:57:09] <janrinok> dunno, don't use mine because no-one would be interested in reading it
[18:57:37] <cmn32480> join #edtrain and paste it there.
[18:57:59] <cmn32480> not logged, and if they ain't in it when it gets posted, they'll never see it
[18:58:04] <cmn32480> becomes a part of the ether
[18:58:12] <charon> all aboard the edtrain
[18:58:22] <cmn32480> TOOT TOO!
[18:59:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> well if you could get paulej72 to give you a shell account you could put it on the chillax server.
[19:00:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> ditto all the new eds and the old ones who can't access it. bug the shit out of him till he hooks you up.
[19:01:51] <charon> there's a third server?
[19:02:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's sposed to be the staff instance of rehash but half yall bastiches can't even reach it cause you got no creds in heisoid or however ya spell it.
[19:02:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah
[19:03:22] <charon> communication is kinda fragmented already
[19:08:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> ha! 223 comments in 8s!
[19:09:15] <cmn32480> using bytram's script are ya?
[19:09:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> he has a script?
[19:09:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, no that's what it took to render them all
[19:09:59] <cmn32480> to create the comments
[19:10:03] <cmn32480> oh
[19:10:11] <cmn32480> different problem
[19:10:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> 4s for 100 of them.
[19:10:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> which is max on live.
[19:10:33] <cmn32480> that's WAY better
[19:10:39] <cmn32480> what system?
[19:10:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> dev
[19:11:11] <cmn32480> so add 50% for prod...
[19:11:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> ?
[19:11:20] <cmn32480> 100comments in 6 seconds is still pretty good
[19:11:30] <cmn32480> load and additional DB complexity
[19:11:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, no. the db runs on other servers.
[19:12:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> the db load is nothing really though. building the trees and rendering the html takes the longest.
[19:13:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> i yam happy though. been wanting this rolled out for a while but bytram broke flat comments and i had to fix em.
[19:14:04] <charon> you mean bytram showed you where they were already broken?
[19:14:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> ~blame
[19:14:22] * exec points at Bytram
[19:14:26] <charon> lol
[19:16:26] <janrinok> well, apart from Charon, is everyone else having a good day?
[19:16:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> hells yeah.
[19:16:57] <janrinok> been fishing recently?
[19:17:12] <cmn32480> reasonable day
[19:17:18] <cmn32480> mostly at charon's expense though
[19:17:26] <charon> grrr
[19:17:47] <janrinok> cmn32480, seems like that is a good day in my book
[19:18:04] <charon> i'm actually fine, just not how i was plkanning to spend my early afternoon
[19:18:12] <janrinok> you plan?
[19:18:29] <charon> nah, you got me there.
[19:18:59] <cmn32480> pffft... planning...
[19:19:07] <cmn32480> I do enough of that for work... I don't need to do it here
[19:19:10] <charon> how about youself, janrinok?
[19:19:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> janrinok, two days last week. 50/50. kicked ass and got mine kicked.
[19:19:36] <janrinok> a busy day but not a bad one one. Hopefully will sleep well tonight
[19:19:55] <janrinok> what are you catching?
[19:23:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> well i was fishing for crappie cause yum but mostly caught bass.
[19:23:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> bit too fishy for my tastes.
[19:24:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> heavier, less flaky meat too.
[19:26:28] <janrinok> fish that is too fishy - OK
[19:26:53] <janrinok> try hunting duck - they are very un-fishy
[19:27:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> more effort
[19:27:34] <janrinok> so like fish that surrender easily? Well, I can relate to that ...
[19:27:35] * TheMightyBuzzard has no interest in a hobby that causes him to lose weight
[19:28:03] <charon> you have to get out of the boat to fetch them
[19:28:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> or hassle with the dog, yeah
[19:28:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> anywho. time for my victory nap.

[22:28:05] <n1> that's not much fun :(
[22:29:00] <Bytram> very UNfun
[22:29:11] <Bytram> which reminds me, time for another ice pack... brb
[22:29:19] <Bytram> how are you doing?
[22:30:31] <n1> i am doing well
[22:31:11] <Bytram> good to hear!
[22:31:36] <Bytram> are you still up in the great white "north"?
[22:39:37] <n1> yeah for another week
[22:40:00] <Bytram> how are you holding up? tired of the snow yet?
[22:43:40] <n1> all is well, i have certainly had enough of the snow though
[22:43:48] <n1> but that was true after day 1

[22:44:47] <Bytram> I've had the good fortune to do some traveling, and I must admit that New England seems to have about the right mix; just when has gorwn tired of one season, another one is right around the corner.
[22:45:44] * Bytram clicks
[22:46:33] <n1> here is pretty extreme due to things like lake-effect
[22:47:26] <Bytram> so I've heard -- so far that is one thing for which I have no first-hand experience.
[22:48:20] <Bytram> I recall a week at college where the temp never got above 0 degrees F (nighttime lows of -20F to -25F... before windchill)
[22:48:57] <Bytram> and I recall one storm that dropped over 30 inches of snow, but the continued bashing of major snow storm after another; that's a 'yet' for me
[22:50:40] <n1> last few days it's been clearing
[22:51:06] <n1> the roads are mostly clear, but all the sidewalks and yards are still several feet below snow
[22:52:33] <n1> when taking a shovel to the driveway, the piles either side are taller than me at their highest points and continue until the next drive someone has been clearing
[22:53:00] <n1> never been anywhere like it
[23:22:53] <Bytram> brings back memories of one particular week when I was about 10 or so; we had snow piles along the road that were ginormous -- plows had to go by twice -- once to plow back the top of the snow bank to make a place for the next pass to be able to put it
[23:23:10] <Bytram> unfortunately I gtg; nice chatting with ya -- hope you have a great night!
