[18:09:19] <cmn32480> anybody think we can go one day without running a politics story?
[18:11:09] <janrinok> I wish we could!
[18:11:15] <janrinok> or a week, or a month!
[18:11:28] <cmn32480> let's start with a day
[18:11:32] <cmn32480> and see how it goes
[18:11:39] <mrpg> agree
[18:13:10] <janrinok> I've delete OO's sub, but Fnord666 might be a but upset if I do the same to his
[18:13:26] <janrinok> deleted*
[18:13:41] * cmn32480 readies the bin to catch Fnord666's sub
[18:13:58] <janrinok> no, that was a correction, not an action on my part
[18:14:22] <mrpg> got it
[18:14:23] <cmn32480> oh
[18:14:27] * cmn32480 kicks a dirt clod
[18:14:47] <janrinok> best one of us explains what is happening to Fnord666 before we delete his sub
[18:15:20] <cmn32480> actually.. his is relevent to tech and tech jobs
[18:15:32] <cmn32480> it all has to do wiht the H1B visa program
[18:15:45] <janrinok> well, that has always been the argument - how do you identify a 'politics' story?
[18:16:04] <cmn32480> however.. I think it is a purely speculative piece, with no meat.. just vapor at this point
[18:16:23] <cmn32480> bin that sucker
[18:16:27] <janrinok> just leave it for a day or two and lets see how it develops
[18:16:37] <janrinok> or you can bin it.... :)
[18:17:09] <cmn32480> added a note
[18:18:44] <cmn32480> and the p666 story on vr scent sounds really familiar
[18:18:56] <cmn32480> I think there was one we did that was patented by a porn company
[18:19:07] <cmn32480> somethign like everythgin smells like fish or some such
[18:19:12] <janrinok> agreed
[18:20:36] <cmn32480> so I'm not crazy?
[18:20:48] <janrinok> yes you are, but you are also correct

[18:24:54] <cmn32480> mrpg - is that FDA story getting a blockquote?
[18:25:08] <mrpg> yes
[18:25:21] <janrinok> lol

[18:32:39] <cmn32480> Mexicans are welcome... as long as they are legal

[21:41:56] <cmn32480> yeah and since it is the accounting system... I gotta be SUPER careful
[21:44:08] <Fnord666> Do they provide any sort of certification/validation suite?
[21:44:51] <Fnord666> I have the same sort of concerns when I do upgrades/maintenance to our encryption hardware modules.
[21:44:57] <cmn32480> no

[21:47:12] <Fnord666> The crypto hardware also requires two people from two other groups that hold smartcards to be present before you can do anything?
[21:47:22] <Fnord666> Did I mention that before?
[21:47:48] <Fnord666> And the equipment and smartcard reader are in the data center so we need physical access?
[21:47:58] <cmn32480> OH geez
[21:48:04] <cmn32480> sounds like a really great time
[21:48:16] <Fnord666> 2 hours to do the update and 6 hours of paperwork, meetings, approval committees, etc.
[21:48:30] <Fnord666> Oh it's a riot. </s>

[22:59:51] <takyon> maybe it's just my browser, but it's a little annoying
[23:00:20] <takyon> and there's no logical way my extension could be blamed
[23:02:30] <cmn32480> any specific pages?
[23:05:42] <charon_> i do not recall seeing such a problem
[23:06:02] <takyon> editng stories is where it seems to happen the most
[23:06:26] <takyon> it's not too big of a deal since I can click and drag the scrollbar
[23:06:36] <charon_> if the mouse is hovering over the text area and the text area has a scrollbar?
