[01:41:21] <charon_> sorry, work was calling
[01:43:12] <charon_> how's tricks?
[02:08:14] -!- charon_ has quit [Quit: working]
[02:15:16] <Fnord666> Sme corner, different day. Yourself?

[02:15:23] <sedctl> <Fnord666> Same corner, different day. Yourself?
[02:15:25] <exec> <Fnord666> Same corner, different day. Yourself?
[02:33:57] <charon> back home now. that sounds similar to me
[02:34:46] <charon> except my jerk-ass co-workers both left without telling me they were leaving. i was waiting for one of them to come back so i could take a lunch break... but they never did
[02:34:59] <Fnord666> nice of them
[02:36:04] <charon> yeap
[02:39:15] <Fnord666> I've been offsite at planning meetings for our product development for the next quarter, so I'm bored to tears.
[02:40:35] <charon> so you're not involved in the planning? you just get to soak up the wisdom of the higher ups?
[02:41:45] <Fnord666> oh no, I'm dead in the middle of the planning but that doesn't make it any more exciting.
[02:42:32] <Fnord666> It's more a coordination thing between departments so really just jockeying for the limited developer resources each team has.
[02:43:29] <Fnord666> And reining in middle managers who want to commit to everything with no idea what it will take to do it.
[02:44:01] <charon> without making it obvious you're calling them idiots
[02:45:39] <Fnord666> exactly.
[02:48:43] <charon> you know what came out this morning?
[02:48:54] <charon> Torment!
[02:49:03] <Fnord666> nice!
[02:49:08] <Fnord666> you pick it up?
[02:49:31] <charon> yep, redeemed my kickstarted code, it's downloaded and waiting for me
[02:49:51] <Bytram> charon: Hi! Congrats on joining the 400 club! https://soylentnews.org
[02:49:54] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews: Hall of Fame
[02:50:00] <charon> so i think i'll dump a few more stories so i don't feel guilty and fire it up
[02:50:02] <Fnord666> well we know what you'll be doing the next week
[02:50:04] <Bytram> Fnord666: Hi! Congrats on joining the 300 club! https://soylentnews.org
[02:50:06] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews: Hall of Fame
[02:50:12] <charon> hi Bytram, and thank you
[02:50:15] <Fnord666> Bytram - Thanks!
[02:50:23] <Fnord666> and ~gday Bytram
[02:50:30] <Fnord666> ~gday Bytram
[02:50:32] * exec democratically throws a blerg of gold doubloons at Bytram
[02:50:32] * Bytram is proud of the new guys! That's 700 stories us FNGs didn't have to work on
[02:50:39] <Bytram> s/N/O/
[02:50:39] <sedctl> <Bytram> is proud of the new guys! That's 700 stories us FOGs didn't have to work on
[02:50:41] <exec> <Bytram> is proud of the new guys! That's 700 stories us FOGs didn't have to work on
[02:50:53] <Fnord666> :)
[02:51:09] <Bytram> hmm, are those metric or imperial blergs of gold dubloons?
[02:51:13] <Bytram> =)
[02:51:25] <Fnord666> I don't think I would complain either way
[02:51:47] <charon> so i hear janrinok is out tending to family, and cmn32480 is out of the country for a few days. so there's even more slack to pick up for the next while
[02:51:50] <Fnord666> but I suspect imperial
[02:52:56] <Fnord666> Apparently NC is down with something too
[02:53:19] <Bytram> aren't they the ones with some kind of space Cruiser or somethin?
[02:53:29] <charon> and nick is still settling into UY
[02:53:41] <Fnord666> UY?
[02:53:48] <charon> Uruguay
[02:53:49] <Bytram> ooey gooey rich and chewy insides...
[02:54:02] <Bytram> oh, wrong ooey!
[02:54:05] <charon> lol
[02:54:10] * Fnord666 snorts
[02:54:34] <charon> $248 worth of pudding
[02:55:05] <charon> you guys may be too old for that joke
[02:55:13] <Fnord666> I did see n1 change his weather default the other day now that I think about it.
[02:56:01] <Fnord666> I guess so 'cause I have no idea.
[02:56:25] <Bytram> charon: that one wenyt over my head, I must admit.
[02:56:58] <charon> no worries, it's not a gut buster anyway
[02:57:10] <charon> just a joke in a 90's tv show
[02:57:40] <Fnord666> http://www.dailymotion.com
[02:58:14] <charon> yep, that would be it
[02:59:17] <charon> my misspent youth
[02:59:25] <Fnord666> it's funny but very definitely a '90s era sketch.
[03:23:40] <charon> is my dept line too much here? https://soylentnews.org
[03:23:42] <exec> └─ 13Error
[03:25:18] <Fnord666> nah, it's good. You could have gone a lot worse!
[03:25:50] <charon> true, true
[03:26:05] <Bytram> clicky
[03:26:23] <Bytram> good one.
[03:26:31] <Fnord666> it's an interesting pattern. the trick is explaining it
[03:26:39] <Bytram> just ahint off-color, butt not entirely in bad taste
[03:26:50] <Fnord666> not even a mention of a thumb
[03:26:59] <Fnord666> and I see what you did there
[03:27:05] <Fnord666> Bytram++
[03:27:05] <Bender> karma - bytram: 48
[03:27:06] <cmn32480> charon - you'll survive a few days without me abusing you... don't worry
[03:27:07] <Bytram> charon++ for italicizing the name of the journal
[03:27:07] <Bender> karma - charon: 20
[03:27:35] <Bytram> Fnord666: mare sea!
[03:27:45] <charon> where are you going anyway?
[03:27:55] <cmn32480> montreal
[03:28:05] <charon> work? or pleasure?
[03:28:11] <cmn32480> little of both
[03:28:16] <charon> and it's a lovely city, good for walking
[03:28:28] <cmn32480> but my hilton app says that the forecast for the hotel is -11116 degrees
[03:28:31] <charon> i spent a day there a while back
[03:28:47] <Fnord666> that's a tad chilly but the beer will be cold
[03:28:56] <Bytram> Awhaw! A little bit of play, eh? Haw Haw Haw! know mwhat Imean? Nudge nudge wink wink!
[03:29:05] <cmn32480> and my johnson might all off
[03:29:17] <cmn32480> not that kind of play... the wife is coming with
[03:29:21] <Bytram> all? OUCH!
[03:29:22] <charon> you... you do wear pants, right?
[03:29:43] <cmn32480> do I look like SpallsHurgenson???
[03:29:50] <Fnord666> hey it says no shirt, no shoes. no mention of pants!
[03:29:54] <Bytram> charon: hate to break it to you, but I've seen a pic of cmn32480 in a kilt.
[03:29:54] <charon> say no more!
[03:30:09] <charon> pics, i demand pics
[03:30:21] <Bytram> charon: s/pi/pe/g
[03:30:21] <sedctl> <Bytram> <charon> pecs, i demand pecs
[03:30:23] <exec> <Bytram> <charon> pecs, i demand pecs
[03:30:26] <cmn32480> not for resale bytram
[03:30:39] <Bytram> what do I hear for an opening bid?
[03:30:57] <cmn32480> lol
[03:31:00] <charon> 38 cents in pennies
[03:31:05] * Bytram doesn't even remember where it was posted.
[03:31:15] <cmn32480> WOOT!
[03:31:27] <cmn32480> anyway... I gotta finish packing
[03:31:28] <charon> damnit, i was counting on you Bytram
[03:31:35] <charon> cheers cmn, have a good time
[03:31:37] <cmn32480> I shall be back on Monday night
[03:31:58] <Fnord666> enjoy!
[03:32:04] <Fnord666> poutine++
[03:32:04] <Bender> karma - poutine: 0
[03:32:05] <cmn32480> you kids try not to burn the palce down while we are gone
[03:32:06] <Bytram> cmn32480: but, *they* don't know what you look like, either, so all I need to do is find at least one pic of some dude in a kilt and I can make a little extra scratch on the side
[03:32:21] <cmn32480> make him in shape at least, ok?
[03:32:24] <Bytram> Fnord666: I dare you to try that on #Soylent
[03:32:35] <Bytram> you might be in for a surprise
[03:32:42] <Fnord666> I may have been born at night. . .
[03:32:48] <Bytram> cmn32480: what kind of shape? out of.
[03:32:49] <Bytram> ?
[03:32:57] <charon> sphere?
[03:32:57] <Fnord666> round. round is a shape
[03:33:04] <Bytram> imagine a spherical cow...
[03:33:11] <Bytram> ;)
[03:33:42] <Fnord666> isn't that what happens when you feed them alka seltzer?
[03:33:54] <Fnord666> then you tip them over and they float waway?
[03:34:00] <Fnord666> s/waway/away/
[03:34:00] <sedctl> <Fnord666> then you tip them over and they float away?
[03:34:03] <exec> <Fnord666> then you tip them over and they float away?
[03:34:09] <Bytram> cmn32480: btw, I really REALLY appreciate your making the time to review today's site update story and pushing it out to the site, even tough i am sure there was already plenty enough on your plate at work
[03:34:14] <Bytram> cmn32480++
[03:34:14] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 86
[03:34:16] <Bytram> cmn32480++
[03:34:16] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 87
[03:35:09] <cmn32480> I'll maybe try to push a couple stories if time allows
[03:35:13] <cmn32480> but don't count on it
[03:35:37] <cmn32480> and bytram is correcct.. we all do greatly appreciate that you FNG have dropped 700 stories in the queue
[03:36:10] <cmn32480> if y'all weren't here... we'd have all crashed and burned long ago
[03:36:11] <charon> just doin' my part, sir.
[03:36:17] * charon tips his hat
[03:36:29] <Bytram> there is absolutely NO WAY that I could have spent the time I did testing the new comment code if I had to spend time pushing out stories -- you made that possible
[03:36:36] * cmn32480 takes the tips from charons hat for pocket $$
[03:36:43] * cmn32480 takes the tips from charons hat for pocket $C
[03:37:09] * charon ogles random men in kilts hoping one of them is cmn32480
[03:37:26] <Bytram> The ogles, they do nothing!
[03:37:28] <cmn32480> I'm the one holding a beer
[03:37:55] <charon> that narrows it down by about 10%
[03:38:29] <cmn32480> and perhaps 2 beers
[03:38:34] <Fnord666> problem is he's in the "upkilt" section
[03:39:01] * charon blurches
[03:39:33] <Fnord666> cmn32480 - you're welcome. glad to help.
[03:41:26] <cmn32480> ~define blurch
[03:41:27] <exec> [urbandictionary] 03blurch: A belch that brings a small amount of stomach acid into the throat, stopping just short of becoming vomit.
[03:41:36] <cmn32480> fair enough
[03:42:47] <charon> all right yahoos, i'm going to play my new game. have a good night all of you.
[03:43:05] <Bytram> really? and all this while I thought they were saying "Birch Beer"!
[03:43:13] <Bytram> charon: have fun!
[03:43:19] <charon> i'll keep the chat open but won't be watching it
[03:43:38] <Bytram> I'll make sure to ping you every several minutes or so
[03:43:45] <Bytram> j/k
[03:43:50] <charon> yes, that would be perfect
[03:43:57] <Fnord666> I guess takyon's comment worked.
[03:44:03] <cmn32480> I'm sure it can be scripted
[03:44:04] <Bytram> which comment?
[03:44:46] <Fnord666> where he pointed out that I didn't add his additional topic that he mentioned in his submission
[03:44:47] <cmn32480> pinging charon every few minutes
[03:45:08] <Bytram> lol
[03:45:34] <Bytram> idea for april 1... select every single topic for all of the stories
[03:45:48] <cmn32480> and put them in all the nexuses
[03:45:59] <Bytram> cmn32480++
[03:46:00] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 88
[03:46:18] <Fnord666> like in the MEdiaTek story
[03:46:24] <Bytram> and have a 2 hours gap before noon (UTC) and then release five stories in 5 minutes.
[03:46:26] <cmn32480> and make them all from gewg_
[03:46:35] <Fnord666> sounds like a plan
[03:46:56] <Bytram> make a meta-sig in the template so that it signs everyone's comment as being by gewg?
[03:47:17] <cmn32480> or... string them all together, release 1 big story at midnight and we cn all take the day off
[03:47:31] <Fnord666> You two need to be moved to seats in opposite corners of the room before you take over the world
[03:47:35] <cmn32480> an 18 story merge
[03:47:52] * cmn32480 high fives bytram
[03:48:02] <Bytram> and the joke is... people will be refreshing the site all day and wondering when the next story will come out? genius. Evil genius!
[03:48:11] * Bytram high fives cmn32480
[03:48:18] <Fnord666> don't forget to include related story links that have nothing to do with it
[03:48:45] <Bytram> Fnord666: even better, choose a topic where we can actually have 100 *valid* related story links.
[03:48:59] <Bytram> s/topic/story/
[03:48:59] <sedctl> <Bytram> Fnord666: even better, choose a story where we can actually have 100 *valid* related story links.
[03:49:01] <exec> <Bytram> Fnord666: even better, choose a story where we can actually have 100 *valid* related story links.
[03:49:27] <cmn32480> f**k that... mark all the storeis from last year as releated
[03:50:18] <Bytram> nah, just mark the very first 10 stories... that ever went public on the site ... as being related.
[03:51:03] <Bytram> am loving the banter here, but really should be thinking about hitting the hay
[03:51:05] <Bytram> oh...
[03:51:12] * Bytram checks the time
[03:51:20] <cmn32480> make them all hidden stories from 1970
[03:51:26] <cmn32480> me too
[03:51:35] <cmn32480> ~gnight y'all
[03:51:36] <Bytram> it's only been 6 minutes
[03:51:38] * exec problematically poops a safe space of discouragement for y'all
[03:51:41] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:51:43] * exec analiciously spews a shitload of irc logs on cmn32480
[03:51:53] <Fnord666> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:51:55] * exec carefully generates a small script that substitutes a raid 5 volume of 555 timers for cmn32480
[03:51:55] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[03:51:57] * exec seductively mixes a scrote of stock options with bytram
[03:52:15] <cmn32480> ~gngiht Fnord666
[03:52:18] <cmn32480> ~gnight charon
[03:52:20] * exec deliciously violates a hashtable of doughnuts with charon
[03:52:37] <Bytram> hmmm, speaking of the 1970 stories... there's bound to be a few that were accidentally deep-sixed... we could resurrect a few and claim it was an attempt, belatedly, to give credit where it was due.
[03:52:52] <cmn32480> plausible
[03:52:58] <Fnord666> possible
[03:53:00] <Bytram> so, just find 15-20 old stories, change the release date/time. voila!
[03:53:03] <cmn32480> "the day of the editor fuckups"
[03:53:10] <cmn32480> or as we call it... Tuesday
[03:53:22] <Fnord666> :)
[03:53:39] <Bytram> might want to choose a more marketable title for it
[03:53:59] <cmn32480> and on that note... I'm out
[03:54:02] <Bytram> day of atonement? resurrection?
[03:54:12] <Bytram> cmn32480: ciao for now
[03:54:14] <takyon> sorry, I had a 2 hour power outage
[03:54:16] <cmn32480> "The day of editor fuckups"
[03:54:23] <cmn32480> minimum number of typoes in every story
[03:54:31] <cmn32480> gewg_'d links all over
[03:54:44] <takyon> <Fnord666> I guess takyon's comment worked.
[03:54:47] <takyon> what's going on
[03:55:00] <takyon> I just got my power back after 2 and a half hours
[03:55:05] <Fnord666> nice
[03:55:11] <cmn32480> #fragment identifiers that don't go anywhere
[03:55:16] <Bytram> charon: seemed to be about the right delay for a random ping... hope you have a good night!
[03:56:31] <cmn32480> sleep well my friends
[03:56:35] <cmn32480> and you too charon
[03:56:35] <Bytram> ~gnight Fnord666
[03:56:36] <Fnord666> takyon - picking on Bytram a little bit because he left an additional topic note in your submission
[03:56:38] * exec casually throws a mountain of vindication at Fnord666
[03:56:39] <Bytram> ~gnight charon
[03:56:41] * exec readily slides a truckload of dag to charon
[03:56:42] <Bytram> ~gnight #editorial
[03:56:43] <Fnord666> ~gnight Bytram
[03:56:45] * exec historically shoves a tinfoil hat of cockles in #editorial
[03:56:45] * exec presumably pairs a petabyte of bacon with Bytram
[03:56:49] <cmn32480> ~gngiht Bytram
[03:56:59] <Bytram> mmm bacon!
[03:57:03] <cmn32480> ~gnight Bytram
[03:57:04] * exec readily duplicates an i/o stream of cromulence for Bytram
[03:57:11] <Fnord666> bacon wins

[03:57:20] <cmn32480> ~gnight chromas
[03:57:21] <chromas> oops

[03:57:26] <chromas> ~g'night cmn32480

[03:57:34] * chromas wrong windowed
[03:57:46] <cmn32480> now we all know chromas' password
[03:57:48] <chromas> good thing I wasn't doing a porn search just then
[03:58:08] <Bytram> yes, i see it now... completely missed it on the first go round-- thanks for catching it!

[03:58:53] <Fnord666> k
[04:00:30] <takyon> added
[04:00:33] <takyon> refresh bytram
[04:01:16] <Fnord666> what did yo uadd?
[04:01:30] <takyon> Related link and a link to a Tom's Hardware story after hte blockquote
[04:01:56] <takyon> related link was the Samsung Exynos 10nm story
[04:02:13] <Fnord666> weird. Firefox is showing me the new adds but Chrome is still on the old page
[04:02:22] <takyon> it's because of caching
[04:02:28] <Fnord666> now it got it
[04:02:33] <takyon> you have to Edit to definitively see changes
[04:02:57] <takyon> sometimes it takes up to 5 minutes before caching weirdness goes away, but what you see when you hit Edit should always be the latest copy
