[00:09:29] * cmn32480 blames charon_
[00:09:52] <cmn32480> like everythign else these days, I have no logic behind it... but the idea seems to work
[00:10:19] <charon_> wait, blaming me is the thing that works?
[00:10:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> ~blame
[00:10:28] * exec points at Bytram
[00:11:04] <cmn32480> just just no logic behind anythign
[00:11:10] <cmn32480> seems to work for the people I work for
[00:11:51] <charon_> run it up the flagpole and see who salutes
[00:12:00] <cmn32480> oh I got a slaute for it
[00:12:09] <cmn32480> the fickle finger of fate
[00:14:15] <charon_> sounds like you're having a tough week
[00:15:30] <cmn32480> I ahven'[t killed anybody... but today I considered it
[00:16:34] <mrpg> linux munich submission ready, go take a look.
[00:16:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> oi, eds, any of yall feel like giving another proofread to the release notes post? had to change stuffs to reflect all the changes in the past week.
[00:18:24] <charon_> i just fixed an slightly clunky sentence, otherwise it looks good
[00:19:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> okey doke
[00:19:50] * cmn32480 has an attitude problem at the moment and doesn't give a flying fuck at a rolling donut
[00:19:50] <mrpg> i found a typo
[00:20:15] <mrpg> i'll fix it - Now to the the specifics.
[00:20:39] * Bytram hasn't looked at it in a few days, but would recommend taking a close look to make sure that user preferences page choices still make sense in light of the changes...
[00:21:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, there may still be come cruft left but it can stay there for now.
[00:21:30] * charon_ passes cmn32480 a beer
[00:21:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's not like it'll hurt anything if we don't use the setting anymore.
[00:22:05] <Bytram> I'm not so much conerned that clicking/changing things will cause problems, but rather will waste people's time trying to use things that have no effect and thinking there is something broken or they are doing something wrong...
[00:22:10] * cmn32480 drains it and cracks open another
[00:22:13] <Bytram> I've been down that path a few time already
[00:23:11] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: just to confirm, did you update the official templates to include a link to the dev server in the SoylentNews slashbox?
[00:23:23] <Bytram> or is that just something that comes along for the ride?
[00:23:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, utterly forgot about it
[00:23:26] <Bytram> np
[00:24:08] * cmn32480 thinks about tracking down that rolling donut... 'cuz he's hangry
[00:24:12] <Bytram> update can be found in #qa
[00:25:03] * Bytram had forgotten how limited MS Paint was, and is now finding it even less useful with the new-style ribbon toolbar
[00:25:45] <charon_> bytram: paint.NET
[00:26:20] <charon_> pretty lightweight, but nearly as fully featured as photoshop. and free
[00:26:24] <mrpg> I dont get this "or email them to dev@soylentnews.org if you've issues with ever registering with a site. " --- should be "with even registering with the site ¿?¿?"
[00:26:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, got it
[00:26:43] <Bytram> charon_: are you saying this is what I am now running, or are you recommending something else that I should be using?
[00:26:50] <Bytram> oh, new thing
[00:26:57] <charon_> i am recommending a different program
[00:26:57] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: many thanks Buzz!
[00:27:02] <Bytram> nod nod
[00:27:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> mrpg, hmm?
[00:27:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh: some people don't like to register with websites
[00:27:57] <Bytram> pardon my ignorance, do you have a link to paint.net readily available, or would it be better for me to just do a search?
[00:28:14] <charon_> http://www.getpaint.net
[00:28:16] <exec> └─ 13Redirecting ...
[00:28:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> #g paint.net
[00:28:19] <MrPlow> http://www.getpaint.net - "Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows."
[00:28:46] <mrpg> aaah ok.
[00:29:10] <Bytram> "or, if you have issues with registering on a site, send an email to dev@soylentnews.org"
[00:29:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> works
[00:29:28] <mrpg> ... or email us at ...
[00:29:39] <Bytram> that works! K.I.S.S.
[00:29:42] <charon_> "and whoever tends that mailbox will get back to you within the fiscal quarter"
[00:29:56] <cmn32480> that is just setting unrealistic exspectations
[00:29:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> yall lot are going to end up making me sound like i speak good english or something
[00:30:14] <mrpg> yuor email is important to us, all our developers are busy,
[00:30:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> charon_, it goes to all the devs
[00:30:28] <cmn32480> please hold...
[00:30:48] <mrpg> you are soycow 345 please wait 99 minutes
[00:30:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram too cause even if he's not in a position to fix it he's quite good at getting other people to fix things
[00:31:29] * Bytram tries to act as a facilitator
[00:32:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> except MrPlow. i don't give a rat's ass about MrPlow's bugs.
[00:33:44] * cmn32480 looks for that link from yesterday
[00:34:09] <cmn32480> #submit https://www.ghostery.com
[00:34:09] -!- MrPlow has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:34:13] * cmn32480 giggles
[00:34:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> okay. nuff for me today. ima eat foods and watch tv
[00:34:34] <charon_> poor mrPlow
[00:34:43] <charon_> later TMB
[00:34:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> #mourn
[00:35:28] <charon_> i will never trust a company that misspells its own name
[00:35:39] <Fnord666> night TMB
[00:35:44] <Fnord666> howdy all
[00:35:50] <charon_> hiyo Fnord666
[00:36:01] <Bytram> ~gnight TheMightyBuzzard
[00:36:03] * exec unnecessarily instantiates a hemp bag of bling blong for TheMightyBuzzard
[00:36:07] <Bytram> ~gday Fnord666
[00:36:09] * exec hurriedly hangs a trigger warning sign about a raid 4 volume of extract of swamp ass on Fnord666
[00:36:23] <Fnord666> ~gday Bytram

[00:36:41] * exec theoretically reticulates a subset of string cheese for TheMightyBuzzard
[00:36:49] <Bytram> is that a new dance? Boogers Woogers?
[00:37:00] <Fnord666> new band
[00:37:12] <cmn32480> i like that he left MrPLow dead
[00:37:19] <mrpg> the site update says 2/17 remember to change the title if it is ofr the weekend
[00:37:25] <charon_> #smake MrPlow
[00:37:39] <Bytram> mrpg++ Great catch!
[00:37:39] <Bender> karma - mrpg: 8
[00:37:54] <mrpg> one is pleased to serve
[00:37:57] * Bytram goes in search of sustenance
[00:38:00] <Bytram> biab
[00:39:08] <Bytram> btw, pain.net is only about 7 MB, but the .net framework it downlkoads is more like 60 MB
[00:39:23] <Bytram> so far, that is... it's still downloading
[00:39:24] <Fnord666> freudian slip?
[00:39:40] <Bytram> prolly... hungry & tired
[00:39:43] <Bytram> biab
[00:39:46] <Fnord666> or deliberate comment about it's interface
[00:39:46] <Bytram> afk
[00:39:54] <Fnord666> enjoy
[00:40:41] <charon_> yeah, i guess i forgot it needs that framework. it was already there for me last time i installed
[00:41:24] <Fnord666> still better than mspaint
[00:41:41] <charon_> a spirograph is better than ms paint
[00:42:24] <Fnord666> an etch-a-sketch is also better
[00:42:37] <charon_> crunching up pigment in your mouth and spitting it onto a cave wall is better than MS paint
[00:43:19] <charon_> i admit, less portable
[00:44:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> mrpg, 17_2 means february 2017 not the 17th of february
[00:44:42] <Fnord666> beyond that we get into scatalogical discussion and while still better, should probably be avoided.
[00:45:46] <mrpg> hmmmm ok
[00:45:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's how we version our releases. it's because NCommander lurves him some ubuntu.
[00:45:50] * charon_ nods
[00:47:09] <charon_> so our releases aren't in raw UNIX Date?
[00:47:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> i think we should code name them
[00:47:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> like this one could be Spanked Simian
[00:48:03] <mrpg> Code Cougar
[00:48:12] * TheMightyBuzzard nods to mrpg
[00:48:20] <charon_> 1668442320
[00:49:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> naming stuff is fun. like the current pull request with the TOS comment mode and all the bug fixes is "arghfuck".

[00:50:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> okay, roomie is back with food
[00:50:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> laters
[00:50:51] <mrpg> bye
[00:52:25] <mrpg> SoylentNews 2017: developer dodo
[00:53:37] <charon_> Derelict Dingo
[00:54:00] <charon_> Consumptive Capybara
[00:54:18] <Bytram> wacky wildebeast
[00:55:15] <charon_> Sacred Sandworm
[00:55:26] <mrpg> Frozen Flea
[00:55:59] <mrpg> Frightening Fossa
[00:56:12] <Bytram> hmmm, is paint.net 32bit or 64bit?
[00:56:30] <charon_> possibly both. my older version is 32
[00:56:36] <Bytram> it wants to install in c:\Program Files\pain.net
[00:56:49] <Bytram> it wants to install in c:\Program Files\paint.net
[00:57:56] <Bytram> or should I put it in:
[00:58:03] <Bytram> C:\Program Files (x86)\paint.net
[00:58:04] <charon_> i think it's both and will run whatever version is appropriate
[00:58:26] <charon_> install directory is more or less cosmetic, i believe
[00:58:44] <Fnord666> install it in /usr/bin
[00:59:27] * Bytram decides to assume that if it were making a mistake with the install dir, someone else would have reported it and it would have been fixed -- decides to accept the proposed default
[01:00:20] <charon_> /dev/null
[01:00:32] <Fnord666> "Paint.NET will automatically run in 64-bit mode if possible. You must have a 64-bit capable CPU and an x64 edition of Windows."
[01:00:49] <Bytram> Fnord666: kewel! thanks!
[01:01:05] <charon_> my work content blocker will not allow that page
[01:02:10] <Bytram> Optimizing paint.net's performance for your system. This maytake a minute.
[01:02:19] <Fnord666> So the default was indeed correct.
[01:02:25] <Bytram> seeimingly
[01:02:51] <Fnord666> if it finds that it has to run in 32 bit mode will it automatically move itself?
[01:03:13] <charon_> no. because who cares what folder it's assigned?
[01:03:47] <Fnord666> correct
[01:03:57] <charon_> also registry keys are already expecting it to be where it first installed
[01:04:12] <Fnord666> any code that does care should be taken out behind the barn and put down
[01:10:14] <Bytram> oh. joy. joy. joy. :/
[01:10:28] <Bytram> The computer must be restarted to complete installation.
[01:11:37] * Bytram has 9 editor windows and at least 16 cmd windows open atm, never mind browser, email, etc.
[01:11:52] <charon_> stupid windows
[01:12:11] <Fnord666> It's probably fine

[01:16:23] <cmn32480> no big shock
[01:16:31] <cmn32480> I'm relatively good at that
[01:16:36] <Fnord666> :)
[01:16:44] <cmn32480> but I am an amateur in comparison to bytram

[01:17:04] <sedctl> <charon_> <exec> <shhh> stupid windows program managers
[01:22:00] <cmn32480> fucking Uncle Sam... stealing all my money
[01:30:25] <Bytram> looks likepaint.net seems to be working w/o a system restart
[01:30:37] <Bytram> still figuring how to use it, but am making progress
[01:38:04] <charon_> don't press the red button...
[01:42:34] <Fnord666> baby groot presses the red button
[01:46:12] * Bytram saw that happen once... at an IBM open house... during a tour of the computer room... at the operator's console of our development team's server... while we were cranking O/T all weekend trying to reach a major deadline... and the button was labelled "RE-IML"
[01:47:13] <Bytram> not IPL, as in Initial Program Load, but IML as in Initial Microcode Load ... yeah, it not only crashed the server, HARD. It took well nigh forever to reboot.
[01:47:18] <Fnord666> Yep. There's a reason we had a thick plexi plate screwed over the red button
[01:56:46] <charon_> and did the resser fess up?
[01:57:04] <charon_> s/resser/presser/
[01:57:04] <sedctl> <charon_> and did the presser fess up?
[01:57:07] <exec> <charon_> and did the presser fess up?
[02:02:16] <Bytram> umm, yeah, it was a 2-year-old kid
[02:03:00] <Bytram> just ran over to the operator console... saw the big red button... and like a moth to a flame and before anyone could react: BAM!
[02:05:17] <charon_> oh, i guess you can't really get too mad at the kid directly for being a curious kid
[02:05:30] <charon_> but it's a lifetime story to tell
[02:06:35] <charon_> worktime over, i am going to excpe while i still can. seeya in a while
[02:06:54] <charon_> umm, that word should have been escape
[02:07:41] -!- charon_ has quit [Quit: excping]
[02:21:54] <mrpg> bye all
[02:22:30] -!- mrpg has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[02:25:42] <paulej72> pludge
[02:26:06] <Bytram> well, yes, it depends on the mission, but does the first dragon heavy flight carry [paying] cargo, or is it just that, a demo
[02:26:20] <Fnord666> Q2 is a demo flight.
[02:26:34] <Fnord666> Q3 is a payload
[02:26:45] <Fnord666> "A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket will launch the U.S. Air Force’s Space Test Program-2 mission with a cluster of military and scientific research satellite"
[02:26:47] <Bytram> paulej72: reminded me of the original Colossal Cave... plugh, plover, y2, etc.
[02:26:56] <Fnord666> xyzzy
[02:27:03] <Bytram> ta-dah!
[02:27:14] <paulej72> is the demo a real demo or a "paying" flight that can die if needed
[02:27:21] <Fnord666> You're in a maze of twisty ...
[02:27:45] * cmn32480 contemplates his naval
[02:27:53] <Fnord666> just says "A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket will launch on its first demonstration flight."
[02:27:59] * Bytram achieved a perfect score of 300 out of 300 after much studious effort of the original colossal cave
[02:28:08] <Bytram> prolly still have the hand-drawn maps around somewhere
[02:28:13] <paulej72> my naval is full of aircraft carriers
[02:28:22] <cmn32480> mine is full of jelly
[02:28:22] <Bytram> orange you glad?
[02:28:25] <Fnord666> Somewhere in the bowels of my office are all of my maps, including the twisty passages.
[02:29:10] <Bytram> spoiler: there were actually two mazes
[02:29:35] <paulej72> never palyed more than a few minutes
[02:29:51] <Bytram> each required an ingenious technique to navigate them, and, of course, one HAD to navigate them successfully in order to get a perfect score
[02:30:35] <Bytram> this was back in the days before IBM came out with its PC
[02:31:10] <Fnord666> played on a teletype
[02:31:26] <Fnord666> the maps are drawn on the back of green fanfold
[02:31:55] <Bytram> so, wait a sec... there is a cargo resupply (SpaceX) leaving Feb 18 AND a cargo resupply (Soyuz) leaving Fed 22, too?!?!!
[02:32:25] <Fnord666> Bytram - the Q2 flight lists the customer as SpaceX with no mission payload listed
[02:32:32] <Bytram> Fnord666: how'd you know? Oh, you were talking about YOUR maps... mine were, too.
[02:32:33] <paulej72> wow that is tight, but one of them is probably taking the long way
[02:32:52] <Bytram> obviously, both will need to be docked at the same time
[02:33:00] <paulej72> progress resuppl can do a week to get on station
[02:33:11] <Bytram> I cn't imagine the astronauts unloading one of them before the next one arrived
[02:33:35] <Fnord666> how many docking rings does the ISS have?
[02:33:38] <paulej72> its more about time for docking procedures and such
[02:33:46] <paulej72> shit ton
[02:33:50] <Bytram> how many EMPTY docking rings
[02:34:11] <Bytram> IIRC, there is a soyuz still docked there in case they need to make an emergency evacuation
[02:34:24] <paulej72> dragon mates to common docking port, progress mates to russing docking ring
[02:35:15] <Bytram> nice to know
[02:35:18] <paulej72> there are ususually one or two russinal docks available and I am not sure how many common docking berths are available
[02:35:43] <paulej72> PMA2 and PMA3 are still there where shuttle used to dock.
[02:36:16] <Fnord666> looks like the ESA has a new universal coking mech design in the works
[02:36:33] <paulej72> although pma3 was only used when they installed it and moved it a few times
[02:36:40] <Bytram> Fnord666: s/co/doc/
[02:36:40] <sedctl> <Bytram> <Fnord666> looks like the ESA has a new universal docking mech design in the works

[02:39:43] <charon> flying to jupiter with the em drive
[02:39:59] <paulej72> really really slowly
[02:40:32] <Fnord666> they did call it the "Long March"
[02:40:50] <Bytram> not quite. Starts very, very slowly, but then constantly accelerates -- that can build up quite a bit of speed
[02:41:10] <Bytram> then again, the distances are "pretty big", too
[02:41:14] <charon> then you turn around and slow down after you get halfway
[02:41:15] <Fnord666> Then flip it and slow back down
[02:41:48] <Fnord666> or use aero braking at the other end and shed velocity as heat

[02:42:17] <charon> ninja'd
[02:42:27] <Bytram> nah... recall reading an SF story as a teen where that term appeared
[02:42:36] <Fnord666> brennschluss
[02:42:42] <Bytram> sounds like it
[02:42:54] <Bytram> ~g brennschluss

[02:43:06] <Bytram> ~define brennschluss
[02:43:08] <exec> brennschluss: unable to find definition
[02:43:36] <Fnord666> probably read it in Gravity's Rainbow
[02:44:16] <Fnord666> or a Heinlein book.
[02:44:24] <charon> i shall never need this word
[02:44:46] <Bytram> wzsn't GR -- could well have been H. or more likely asimov or clarke
[02:44:58] <Fnord666> There are some words that need to be known though
[02:45:13] <Fnord666> for instance my favorite word for critical games of hangman
[02:45:21] <charon> syzygy
[02:45:30] <Fnord666> holy crap
[02:45:34] <Bytram> Es gibt worte das man solte kennen, nicht wahr?
[02:45:37] <charon> am i good or what?
[02:45:51] <Bytram> charon: spelling: A+
[02:45:54] <Fnord666> I have never met anyone who knows that word before
[02:45:58] <Bytram> charon: now, can you explain what it means?
[02:46:13] <charon> something something conjugation of heavenly bodies
[02:46:22] <Bytram> good enough
[02:46:28] <charon> time of closest approach of some sort
[02:46:31] <Bytram> Fnord666: yes, you met two at once
[02:46:34] <Bytram> =)
[02:46:50] <Bytram> ~g syzygy
[02:46:52] <exec> [google] https://en.wikipedia.org
[02:47:16] <Fnord666> when people get thru all the vowels and still have nothing ....
[02:47:27] <charon> using that in hangman is a murdering offense
[02:47:30] <Fnord666> the basic 5 I mean
[02:48:10] <Bytram> aha! found where I first encountered "Brennschluss" -- "The science fiction novel Rip Foster Rides the Gray Planet (1952) written by Harold L. Goodwin (under the pseudonym Blake Savage)"
[02:48:25] <charon> the college i went to had an ultimate frisbee team called that. so it has always stuck with me
[02:48:35] <Bytram> I was prolly just barely a teen when I read that
[02:48:49] <Fnord666> or use it in scrabble
[02:49:16] <Bytram> would be nice, but I am not sure there are enough "Y"s available
[02:49:23] <Fnord666> there are 4
[02:49:33] <paulej72> blanks
[02:49:40] <Fnord666> getting three though
[02:49:54] <charon> not very high scoring though. what, 25 before bonus?
[02:49:57] <Fnord666> but they are 4 points each so worth it to get them
[02:50:30] <Fnord666> about there, yes
[02:50:41] <charon> working from memory on letter scores
[02:50:42] <paulej72> check the words with friends db and see how often it has been played
[02:50:42] <Bytram> hmm, just found it in the OSPD (Official Scrabble Players Dictionary) word list
[02:50:53] <Bytram> and, in SOWPODS, too
[02:50:54] <cmn32480> I think tallying the mileage is the worst part of doing my taxes
[02:51:17] <Fnord666> Don't they have an app for that on your smart phone.
[02:51:20] <Fnord666> ?
[02:51:40] <charon> don't you submit after every trip?
[02:51:52] <cmn32480> yes
[02:52:09] <paulej72> but there are so many of them
[02:52:12] <Fnord666> charon - re ultimate frisbee. When I was in college I played Rugby. The ultimate team practiced on the field between us and the lacrosse team. They looked intimidated most days..
[02:52:17] <cmn32480> but for my taxes, I ahve to figure out the business vs personal miles, and what the company pays out vs. what the IRS says I ought to get
[02:52:40] <charon> timf to dump it on an accountant and take a nap
[02:52:43] <Fnord666> ok that sounds like a major PITA
[02:53:30] <paulej72> chicken salad on a pita, yum
[02:53:42] <Fnord666> cajun chicken salad
[02:53:51] <paulej72> double youm
[02:54:11] <paulej72> i have no idea where that second o came from
[02:54:16] <charon> Fnord666: i believe it, rugby players are crazy and big. but ultimate players are amazingly fast and willing to lay out for a catch, so they're batshit too
[02:54:56] <Fnord666> true
[02:55:24] <Bytram> instead of rugby or ultimate, I played scrabble
[02:55:37] <Bytram> ;)
[02:55:51] <charon> i played ultimate, but i was too slow to be good

[17:32:18] <Fnord666> small question about the Unilever story and formatting
[17:32:24] <cmn32480> ok
[17:32:54] <takyon> fnord666
[17:32:54] <Fnord666> you've got a little teaser "Now for the fun part." in there but it's below the fold
[17:33:14] <takyon> in the kraft story, can you change "makes" to "proposes" and "made" to "proposed"
[17:33:14] <Fnord666> as a stylistic choice are we considering it too lowbrow to drop that above the fold
[17:33:17] <cmn32480> blame takyon.. he formatted it
[17:33:28] <takyon> I think that more accurately reflects what Kraft Heinz did
[17:33:36] <Fnord666> takyon - I will
[17:33:43] <takyon> what are you blaming me for, smn69480?
[17:33:56] <cmn32480> it's your sub
[17:34:04] <takyon> ah
[17:34:20] <cmn32480> so heaping the blame on you is accurate
[17:34:29] <cmn32480> as I did NOT reformat it
[17:34:36] <takyon> I couldn't care less where the fun part goes.
[17:34:48] <cmn32480> interesting
[17:34:53] <takyon> ehehehehehhe
[17:34:57] <Fnord666> I was considering moving that line above the fold but it's a little "you wont believe what happened next!!!" ish
[17:35:09] <Fnord666> damn, missed a good quote there
[17:35:11] <takyon> it's a reward for clicking on the article and reading the full summary
[17:37:08] <Fnord666> ok. Just inquiring to understand where we, as SN, stand on that sort of headlines, teasers for links, etc.
[17:37:44] <Fnord666> Not yours specifically takyon but there are some submitters that I might expect clockbait from.

[17:38:19] <takyon> you're welcome
[17:38:24] <cmn32480> I'm good with the clickbait part being after the fold, as it won't be clickbaity at that point.. they've already looke at the article
[17:39:29] <Fnord666> nice dept BTW
[17:39:49] <cmn32480> you got the joke?
[17:39:56] <takyon> yup
[17:40:03] <Fnord666> yes
[17:40:06] <cmn32480> good
[17:40:26] <cmn32480> I figured at least a few people would get the reference
[17:40:48] <Fnord666> they might not admit it though.
[17:41:00] <cmn32480> but you did.. and that is good enough

[17:43:27] <cmn32480> fixed the [...] that he leaves out
[17:43:37] <cmn32480> and left the rest for the community to beat on
[17:46:08] <Fnord666> takyon - did you want the text for the cnbc link updated as well? "Kraft Heinz may make a formal offer by March 17th."
[17:46:22] <takyon> no
[17:46:24] <Fnord666> ok
[17:46:24] <takyon> that's fine
[17:46:42] <takyon> it's just that the event I was reporting on was a proposed bid, not an actual boid
[17:47:00] <Fnord666> good point
