[02:52:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> ~eds we've only got one story queued
[02:52:38] <exec> editor ping for TheMightyBuzzard (reason: we've only got one story queued): janrinok zz_janrinok n1 nick martyb Bytram cmn32480 coolhand takyon bytram|away Fnord666 charon GreatOutdoors FatPhil Snow goodie mrpg
[02:53:05] <Bytram> np brb
[02:58:01] <Bytram> hey, there were still TWO stories in the queue. =)
[02:59:01] <Bytram> and now there are 3
[03:00:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> mine don't count
[03:00:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's just there to annoy cmn32480
[03:01:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, charon put one in since i looked looks like
[03:01:22] <Bytram> I wasn't counting that one.
[03:01:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, there's only 2 queued right now not counting mine
[03:01:50] <Bytram> cryo volcano & high cost of home were still pending when I looked
[03:02:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> cryo volcano been out almost an hour
[03:02:17] <Bytram> oh
[03:02:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> scratch that, zactly an hour
[03:03:14] <Bytram> well I just pushed out two
[03:03:23] <Bytram> going in for more
[03:04:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> you're aight, Bytram. without you they'd have to deal with me editing while drunk.
[03:04:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> i think we can all agree that nobody wants that.
[03:04:58] <Bytram> orly? maybe I should head to bed now? would be a real hoot seeing the 'interesting' comments about topy's and the like
[03:05:14] <Bytram> ;)
[03:06:01] <Bytram> urg... think I made a mistake with story queing times
[03:06:18] <Bytram> yup
[03:08:00] <Bytram> nearly fixed
[03:08:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, i was wondering why they was like 2m apart
[03:08:59] * TheMightyBuzzard subs and edits breitbart's entire rss feed
[03:09:12] <Bytram> I wrote a proggy that pulls down the story queue, and accepts 2 parms, number of entries to skip (like the Hey CMN one) and the offset from the time stamp of the selected story
[03:09:20] <Bytram> I skipped one two many stories
[03:09:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahhh
[03:09:32] <Bytram> Choo!
[03:10:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> that'd actually be a good 4/1 prank
[03:10:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> nothing but breitbart and huffpo stories
[03:10:25] <Bytram> what? have a bunch of stories appear only minutes apart?
[03:10:55] <Bytram> heh... or randonly go in and swap the release time of any two, already published, stories? =)
[03:11:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> that'd be a good one on the editors, ya.
[03:11:48] <Bytram> story A appeared at time t1 and story B appeared at time t2; after some period of time, swap t1 and t2... time slots and stories are the same, but... =)
[03:12:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> i think only you and bender would notice
[03:13:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> i should build in a post to the sn twitter feed function in Bender
[03:13:25] <Bytram> I disagree... especially if we swapped 'em every 5-10 minutes or so
[03:14:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> or we could go into the source and have it not sort the comments at all for a day.
[03:14:50] <Bytram> ewww, that would be MEAN!
[03:14:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> hehehe, yeah
[03:15:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> they'd reload in a random order every single time.
[03:15:20] <Bytram> just let existing stories pop around between different time slots... no real harm, and just makes one start to quesiton their own sanity
[03:15:35] <Bytram> then people start noticing comments appearing before the story released
[03:15:43] <Bytram> should get a heck of a meta discussion going on
[03:15:47] <Bytram> =)
[03:15:54] <Bytram> I really *likes* it!
[03:16:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> maybe put a :hover { display: none; } in for the reply to this buttons
[03:17:35] <Bytram> but only after a 5 second display?
[03:17:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> doable i think
[03:17:48] <Bytram> nah, we do not want to impeded the posting of comments
[03:17:57] <Bytram> s/ded/de/
[03:17:57] <sedctl> <Bytram> nah, we do not want to impede the posting of comments
[03:17:59] <exec> <Bytram> nah, we do not want to impede the posting of comments
[03:19:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> kay, hows about a :hover { font-size: 40pt; }
[03:20:13] <Bytram> a :hover { font-size: 40pt; font-weight: light; font-family: "comic sans"}
[03:20:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, think ima duckroll everyone this time around.
[03:20:35] <Bytram> ~define duckroll
[03:20:36] <exec> [urbandictionary] 03duckroll: When you get a picture of a duck on wheels, instead of what you expected to get. Often used on image boards such as 4chan.

[03:23:10] * exec points at Bytram
[03:23:14] * Bytram lurvs automation
[03:23:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> it does save time
[03:23:41] <Bytram> once you get htings working... up until then, slows things down
[03:24:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, i think we're doing s/something/something else/ on comments for 4/1
[03:24:31] <charon> crack?
[03:24:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, only booze tonight.
[03:25:36] <Bytram> hmmm, there's a wise crack, but no such thing as wise booze... go figure!
[03:26:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> ♫ well you may not know it but this man's a spy, he's an undercover agent for the fbi, and he's been sent down here to infiltrate the klu klux klan ♫
[03:26:48] <Bytram> YES!! Loved that song!
[03:27:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> me too, it am hilarious.
[03:28:19] <Bytram> what was the one with the refrain "Down the Mississippi to the port of New Orleans"? something about the Red Coats

[03:29:06] <Bytram> mare sea!
[03:29:31] <Bytram> okay, queue is good until 12:46 UTC / 7:46 EST
[03:29:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> you guys is aight
[03:30:36] <Bytram> I try, I try.
[03:31:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, i need a script to tally the most common words for the 4/1 joke sed
[03:32:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> maybe of the last 10k comments or so
[03:32:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> remind me and i'll write it tomorrow
[03:32:51] <Bytram> extract the text from the comments, send it to me, and I can slice/dice 'em in no time
[03:33:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah thas easy nuff in perl
[03:33:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> take me like a half hour to write, sql and perl both, while i'm drinking my first cup o coffee.
[03:34:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> already got it wrote in my head, just needs remembering and typing.
[03:34:50] <Bytram> k
[03:36:14] <Bytram> looks like some of my PM add-ons are out of date... updating and restarting so they take effect
[03:37:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> pull each comment in to a scalar, split() it into an array, throw each word into a hash or increment the value if it was already there, sort or possibly map to get them in order, then print out the top 100
[03:38:58] <Bytram> cat *.txt | sed "s#[[:space:]]+#\n#g" | sort | uniq -c | tail -50
[03:39:34] <Bytram> maybe sed "s#[[:punct:]]##g", too
[03:39:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, that'd likely work too

[18:20:04] <charon_> hello? (ello llo lo...)
[18:20:22] <cmn32480> 'elo luv.
[18:28:12] <charon_> what's up today?
[18:28:20] <cmn32480> same old same old
[18:29:37] <cmn32480> NCommander reboots stuff randomly.. .the usual
[18:29:49] <charon_> heh
[18:30:13] * NCommander hides
[18:30:40] * cmn32480 drags NCommander out of his hole kicking and screaming....
[18:30:50] <charon_> i was still up when you posted your novel, so i finally got to edit one
[18:30:55] <cmn32480> 50 lashes with a limp noodle.
[18:31:25] <charon_> just fixed a couple typos and some clunky phrasing
[18:31:39] <cmn32480> that isn't too bad.. only 3 scrolls of the mouse wheel
[18:32:16] <NCommander> charon_, I'm less verbose than I used to be
[18:32:48] <charon_> heheh, cmn32480 told me horror stories
[18:33:26] <cmn32480> and my experiences are less verbose than the initial novels
[19:09:53] <charon_> uh oh, race condition time
[19:10:09] <cmn32480> I'm in no condition to race
[19:10:13] <cmn32480> I'm still fat
[19:10:23] * charon_ kicks your ankle
[19:10:52] <charon_> anyway, JR is the other contestant
[19:11:12] <charon_> but he's not or IRC for me to say STAHHHP
[19:12:28] * cmn32480 hobbles back to his desk
[19:12:49] <cmn32480> I sent him a PM via exec that will show up soon as he says something
[19:13:34] <cmn32480> hmmmmm
[19:13:41] <cmn32480> exec is not updating the wiki...
[19:13:46] <cmn32480> ~storybot
[19:32:39] <charon_> cmn32480: are you messing with exec or is is it failing on its own?
[19:32:47] <cmn32480> unknown
[19:32:52] <cmn32480> likely on his own
[19:34:37] -!- exec has quit [Quit: dafuq]
[19:39:49] <charon_> which reminds me of a conversation i had with fnord last night. do you know if the submitting bots use some special API to get the story into the queue? or do they submit it through the web interface page like a human?
[19:40:37] <cmn32480> through the API
[19:41:00] <cmn32480> https://wiki.soylentnews.org
[19:41:39] <charon_> he and i were talking about a grease monkey script that could allow you to nearly effortlessly submit a story
[19:42:06] <cmn32480> shit....
[19:42:11] <cmn32480> exec box is not starting
[19:43:32] <charon_> well, i guess i'll submit the old fashioned way
[19:49:59] <cmn32480> had to drop back one kernel version...
[19:50:04] <cmn32480> somethign went VERRY wrong
