[00:12:58] <cmn32480> THAT IS FUCKING HILARIOUS
[00:14:03] <cmn32480> takyon - he wants to play those games... you ought to have let me post it
[00:14:23] * cmn32480 goes to vandalize all gewg_'s links
[00:16:41] <takyon> there's no reason to do that
[00:22:54] <cmn32480> what? Have a good laugh?
[00:23:10] <cmn32480> [Ed Note: This submission vandalized by cmn32480.]
[00:23:37] * cmn32480 considers doing it on second edit
[00:24:25] <cmn32480> TheMightyBuzzard - I do believe that it might be a two way street
[00:27:04] <cmn32480> All fixed takyon - https://soylentnews.org

[00:34:51] <Fnord666> awww cmn32480's making new friends.
[00:35:00] <cmn32480> nope
[00:35:07] <cmn32480> keeping up relations with old ones
[00:36:00] <cmn32480> looks like that might be his tag loine on all his new subs
[00:36:13] * cmn32480 can't wait to vandalize the living shit out of all of them....
[00:36:26] * cmn32480 tents his fingers and laughs maniacally
[00:37:12] <cmn32480> he does it on the kansas shooting story too
[00:41:47] <cmn32480> don't say I never taught you anythgin Fnord666
[00:42:32] <Fnord666> I can but hope to reach your lofty heights.
[00:43:54] <cmn32480> start digging!
[00:44:19] <cmn32480> I admit, I find screwing with him hilarious
[00:44:36] <Fnord666> Isn't there some pithy quote about being judged by the quality of your oppnents?
[00:45:05] <cmn32480> he is a quality opponent
[00:46:18] <Fnord666> nothing worse than a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.
[00:47:30] <cmn32480> quite intelligent, but so self-righteous he is easy to bait
[00:48:02] <cmn32480> i used to get mad about it... then I realized, I can piss him off virtually at will, and with very little effort
[00:51:48] <cmn32480> I know... ima shithead
[00:54:16] <Fnord666> It provides him with an opportunity to grow
[00:57:20] <Fnord666> I think a fettuccine noodle goes well with that.
[00:58:30] <Fnord666> speaking of trolling...
[00:59:15] <Fnord666> on the Google's new tool for fighting online trolls story
[01:00:09] <Fnord666> I had to include Brianna Wu from TFA. Is that evil of me?
[01:10:46] <Fnord666> or is that too cheeky?
[01:12:28] <takyon> and im back
[01:12:42] <takyon> let me put it this way
[01:12:51] <takyon> I've heard of Briannu Wu
[01:23:51] <takyon> I have a question about the comment loading times TheMightyBuzzard
[01:24:16] <takyon> do performance fixes not work on users who have configured the site to display all comments on a story?
[01:24:47] <takyon> which is me last time I checked
[01:27:01] <cmn32480> they will once the upgrade gets pushed
[01:27:16] <cmn32480> sometime in 2020
[01:30:44] <cmn32480> I think it is currently scheduled for the 37th of Floopuary, 2020
[01:31:04] <takyon> on the Islamic calendar
[01:32:02] <cmn32480> transposed to Chinese

[01:40:08] <takyon_> uh oh, Waymo sues Uber!!!
[01:40:21] <Fnord666> \away
[01:51:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, performance fixes are universal but degrade the more comments you choose to show per page
[01:52:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> threshold and breakthrough have no impact on performance though
[01:54:32] <takyon_> so there will be some degree of improvement even if you load all 400 comments on page load
[01:55:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, prod is limited to 100/page
[01:58:55] <takyon_> i'll put that to the test!
[01:59:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> well it will be rather. right now threaded and improved threaded load 100 top level comments and every child they have
[01:59:32] <takyon_> I'm on here: https://soylentnews.org and as far as I can tell all 115 comments are loaded for me

[04:40:42] <charon> blah
[04:56:14] <charon> ~tell cmn32480 nice job vandalizing OO_'s sub. i think he wants to be friends
[05:11:54] <Fnord666> so how's charon this eve?
[05:12:26] <charon> pretty OK. spents the day and evening trying to get my daughter to do her overdue homework
[05:12:44] <Fnord666> ygh
[05:12:47] <Fnord666> ugh
[05:13:34] <charon> no kidding
[05:13:51] <charon> she's very bright, but she just will not concentrate on school work
[05:14:54] <Fnord666> bored?
[05:15:28] <charon> i don't think so. she's not *that* smart
[05:15:44] <charon> but she would rather draw than pay attention in class
[05:16:19] <charon> she's a night owl like her dear old dad, so doesn't get enough sleep and is drowsy during the day
[05:16:51] <Fnord666> My younger daughter is the same way.
[05:17:29] <Fnord666> She likes to draw anime and write fan fiction whenever she can.
[05:17:33] <charon> if school was held from 10a - 5p, she'd be fine
[05:18:20] <Fnord666> Exactly. On the weekends my daughter gets up at the ass crack of noon.
[05:18:31] <charon> yep
[05:18:58] <charon> this is vacation week. she got up at noon, ate something, then fell asleep again for another couple hours
[05:19:33] <Fnord666> bingo
[05:20:04] <Fnord666> but I'll hear her watching anime at 3am
[05:20:40] <Fnord666> usually when I'm trying to sleep and she's giving the screenwriter what for about the storyline.
[05:20:54] <charon> lol
[05:21:42] <charon> we try to be strict about bedtimes, but she'll be in bed using a DS or ipad under the covers
[05:22:16] <Fnord666> My daughter is almost 17 so we've slacked that up some and this is usually on the weekends.
[05:22:46] <Fnord666> The firewall cut off all of her devices at her bedtime when she was younger.
[05:23:41] <Fnord666> But both of my daughters are nightowls also
[05:24:14] <charon> i might try to figure that. i'm not resident anymore, so i don't have a lot of say in how things go when i am not there
[05:24:30] <Fnord666> ah yes, I had forgotten.
[05:25:37] <charon> but the firewall is a good idea. presumably the one built into the router is sufficient?
[05:25:55] <Fnord666> That's what I used for this, yes.
[05:26:17] <Fnord666> You could control access by MAC address, day and time
[05:26:44] <charon> i have no great networking skill, but i think i can prolly hack that. need my ex to give me the password
[05:27:01] <Fnord666> when they are smart enough to change the MAC then they've learned something and you move on
[05:27:21] <charon> heh, gotta be quick to keep up with the kids
[05:28:26] <Fnord666> yup. I was talking to my younger one the other day and she mentioned that she uses a VPN on her ipod to bypass the high school's firewall
[05:28:43] <Fnord666> I'm so proud....
[05:28:46] <charon> lol
[05:30:09] <Fnord666> I just wanted to drop by and see how things were going.
[05:30:32] <Fnord666> Got a few new subs in the queue and some stories lined up. I think it's time for bed.
[05:30:36] <charon> thank's for the subs
[05:30:44] <charon> sleep well
[05:30:50] <Fnord666> you too.
[05:30:53] <charon> ~gnight Fnord666

[05:31:02] * exec excoriatingly cracks open a heap of prison food for charon
[05:31:13] <charon> i think i lose
[05:31:32] <Fnord666> i believe so.

[23:12:32] <charon_> Fnord666: you about?
[23:17:26] <charon_> in case you are, i butchered the spaceX story because it was two days late. changed it out to a new story about successful docking
[23:31:44] <Fnord666> howdy charon_
[23:31:54] <Fnord666> back now
[23:31:55] <charon_> lo
[23:32:05] <Fnord666> no problem
[23:32:50] <charon_> i figured not, but i wanted to warn you
[23:32:52] <Fnord666> I was wondering if I should pull in an updated article as well.
[23:33:14] <charon_> i went with just getting a current source and pulling a new qute
[23:33:21] <Fnord666> cool
[23:33:52] <charon_> we're all grown ups here. i mean, none of us are OO_
[23:34:10] <Fnord666> I'm not sure even OO_ is OO_
[23:34:39] <charon_> speaking of butchering, he will be wroth at how i've treated his baby
[23:35:00] <Fnord666> ~define wroth
[23:35:02] <exec> [urbandictionary] 03Wroth: Adjective: angry, wrathful, violent, stormy, turbulent.
[23:35:18] <Fnord666> yep, that probably fits.
[23:35:43] <Fnord666> Now I have to go see what you did to it.
[23:36:22] <charon_> just finished
[23:36:47] <Fnord666> maybe you can earn your own byline on his submissions.
[23:37:57] <charon_> heh, i hope to displace cmn32480
[23:39:51] <Fnord666> You did a good job cleaning that up and merging them.
[23:40:00] * charon_ bows
[23:40:29] <Fnord666> take a second one for the dept
[23:40:42] * charon_ curtseys
[23:41:21] <charon_> the vice article gets the point across, and if anyone wants to know more, the other links are there but not cluttering up the place
[23:44:54] <Fnord666> yup
[23:45:07] <Fnord666> HAve to bring this article into the discussion
[23:45:09] <Fnord666> http://www.rollcall.com
[23:45:11] <exec> └─ 13Tele-Town Halls Effectively Blocked for Politicians
[23:45:38] <Fnord666> although with Pai at the helm it may already be reversed.
[23:46:30] <Fnord666> That decision was under Wheeler I believe.
[23:51:26] <charon_> boo hoo, politicians can't robo dial every phone in the world
[23:53:34] <charon_> i think people who invent and use such bullshit technology are not people who answer their own phones. they have no clue how annoying it is
