[01:43:22] <takyon> someone put fnord in there twice
[01:44:17] <takyon> also please separate Original Submission links with a " &nbsp " and put #1, #2... #n in the links
[01:44:23] <takyon> (in the future)
[02:10:16] <Bytram> takyon: sorrrrrry about that! I noticed the other story after I pushed out the first one and had to try and merge them by hand.
[03:01:33] <Bytram> cmn32480: Hi! How are you doing today?
[03:03:28] <cmn32480> haven't fired anybody
[03:03:50] <cmn32480> how about you?
[03:03:50] <Bytram> well, that IS something =)
[03:04:16] <Bytram> pretty well, actually. my sciatica seems to be letting up.
[03:04:18] <Bytram> ~woop
[03:04:23] <Bytram> !woop
[03:04:23] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[03:04:47] <Bytram> which reminds me, how is your ankle?
[03:04:50] <cmn32480> that's good to hear
[03:05:07] <Bytram> is even gooder to say!
[03:07:26] <Bytram> here's a "coincidence" for you... I was about 5 minutes away from closing up my system for a nap when you popped in about the work thing.
[03:07:50] <cmn32480> it happens
[03:08:05] <cmn32480> my timing is often impeccable
[03:08:17] <Bytram> Well, I for one, am glad that I could be there for you.

[03:08:33] <Bytram> =)
[03:08:49] <cmn32480> J is trying to get me to agree to go to a concert wiht her for a guy I have never heard of
[03:09:14] <cmn32480> music isn't bad...
[03:09:26] <Bytram> I supose it could be worse... a guy you have heard of... who cannot sing!
[03:09:51] <Bytram> 2nding FEC Commissioiner
[03:13:50] <Bytram> 2nding Payments Giant Verifone Investigating Breach
[03:18:53] <cmn32480> J just told me she can't figure out how I got a girlfriend/wife ... since I can sit here and sing weird al tunes along with Youtube
[03:26:45] <Bytram> LOL!
[03:27:14] <cmn32480> coming from my wife.. that is some statement
[03:27:30] <Bytram> something tells me that may have been a skill that you kept in reserve while waiting for just the right moment to reveal it!
[03:32:13] <cmn32480> she swears she knew about it from day one and just "overlooked that minor flaw"
[03:34:34] <Bytram> sorry -- was just finishing the 2nding of the Verifone breach story... there was an update on Kreb's site that I added
[03:34:48] <cmn32480> np
[03:34:54] <cmn32480> I'm still working on expenses
[03:34:55] <Bytram> sounds like she is a keeper if she can overlook THAT!
[03:35:03] <cmn32480> trying to do all the cnadien conversion SUCKS
[03:35:28] <cmn32480> at some point she just decided to overlook the weird
[03:35:32] <cmn32480> i suppose
[03:35:36] <Bytram> can you use just one conv rate, or did the rate change over the period?
[03:36:09] <cmn32480> I'm using 1 conversion rate
[03:36:22] <Bytram> nod nod; at least that helps a bit
[03:36:26] <cmn32480> $1 Canadiean = $0.75 US
[03:36:47] <cmn32480> it's matching up the credit card statement to the receipts that is a gigantic PITA
[03:37:41] <Bytram> fwiw, I just take all the receips and arrange them in chron order, writing on the top of each: which card (Amex, Visa), the Date, and the Total Amount.
[03:38:20] <Bytram> so, now that each receipt has a common layout, it is MUCH quicker to sort and find things
[03:38:38] <cmn32480> amateurs.....
[03:38:54] <Bytram> break time -- dishes
[03:39:13] <cmn32480> 1) Onyl 1 credit card when traveling unless there is no way around it
[03:39:38] <cmn32480> 2) scan all that crap into NeatReceipts. Let it OCR the receipts and get rid of the dam paper
[03:40:02] <cmn32480> match the vendor to the credit card atatement so that I get paid in US $
[03:40:31] <Bytram> I like your system -- very nice!
[03:40:40] <cmn32480> been using it for about 10 years
[03:41:07] <Bytram> very nice, indeed!
[03:41:12] <cmn32480> have all the receipts since I started at my current employer organized in one place
[03:41:23] <cmn32480> if they need an expense report from 2009 I can grab it easy
[03:41:47] <Bytram> organization++
[03:41:47] <Bender> karma - organization: 1
[03:41:51] <Bytram> backups++
[03:41:51] <Bender> karma - backups: 1
[03:42:01] <Bytram> you do have backups, right?
[03:42:04] <cmn32480> makes it a lot easier to know when they short me too
[03:42:12] <cmn32480> several times over
[03:42:21] <Bytram> trust, but verify.
[03:42:34] <Bytram> both their reimbursement and you backups
[03:43:16] <cmn32480> I have backups of the DB file for neat receipts, as well as the PDF reports that get generated that I turn in
[03:45:05] <Bytram> nobody's gonna catch YOU flat-footed, that's for sure!
[03:45:19] <cmn32480> not for this
[03:45:32] <cmn32480> i need the expense reports adn my annual calendar for tax reasons.
[03:45:43] <cmn32480> there are tax deductions at stake!
[03:46:27] <Bytram> go gt 'em, tiger!
[03:46:33] <Bytram> s/gt/get/
[03:46:33] <sedctl> <Bytram> go get 'em, tiger!
[03:46:35] <exec> <Bytram> go get 'em, tiger!
[03:47:09] <charon> good evening, gentlemen
[03:47:41] <charon> all your base are belong to us
[03:47:53] <charon> you have no chance to survive make your time
[03:47:55] * cmn32480 looks around for these "gentlemen" you speak of...
[03:47:57] <charon> ha ha ha
[03:48:46] <cmn32480> someone set up us the bomb!
[03:48:52] * Bytram detects he has not a single base, but wonders if he could substitute an acid, instead?
[03:49:20] <cmn32480> that'd keep you neutral
[03:49:31] <cmn32480> https://www.youtube.com
[03:49:33] <exec> └─ 13All Your Base Are Belong To Us (Original) - YouTube
[03:50:19] <charon> so how goes it?
[03:50:47] <cmn32480> if I remember right it went just like the shitty Japanese game it was stolen from... but with crappy subtitles
[03:51:11] <Bytram> well, all in all. caught up on several errands today, sciatica was much more manageable (dare I say it seems to be on the mend?), and am just winding down before the weekend.
[03:51:32] * charon knocks wood on Bytram's behalf
[03:51:32] <Bytram> cmn32480: sounds about right.
[03:52:30] <Bytram> I'll be away at a retreat this weekend... if I get 10 hours sleep over the two nights, I'll be surprised. Oh, and it's Daylight Saving Time weekend, too, so I get to lost an hour's sleep in the process.
[03:52:49] * Bytram hears knocks on wood and looks around for a woodpecker
[03:52:51] <cmn32480> yer good
[03:52:56] <cmn32480> I don't leave until Monday morning
[03:53:17] * cmn32480 finds his behind his zipper as expected
[03:53:35] <Bytram> the time change itself won't be a problem, but losing an hour's sleep in the middle is FAR from... ideal.
[03:53:58] <cmn32480> ~nelson bytram
[03:54:00] <exec> 03bytram: HA! HA!
[03:54:34] <cmn32480> all in all charon.. not bad
[03:54:37] <Bytram> yeah. yeah. yeah.
[03:54:42] <charon> as i recall, the daylight savings change day has the highest incidence of male heart attacks
[03:54:42] <cmn32480> didn't have to fire anybody today.. so that is aplus
[03:55:09] <cmn32480> when you spring forward.. it thinks your erection lasts 5 hours?
[03:55:23] <Bytram> I just pushed out one more story so we are covered until 13:53 UTC / 8:53 AM EST
[03:55:31] <charon> you're on the right track, cmn32480
[03:55:35] <cmn32480> I'll be in the office early bytram
[03:55:38] <cmn32480> don't sweat it
[03:55:39] <Bytram> then another 90 or so minutes after that before another story is due out.
[03:55:48] <Bytram> so, we're in good shape atm
[03:55:49] <Bytram> =)
[03:56:07] <Bytram> cmn32480: mare's e
[03:56:08] <charon> too bad that FNG never showed up all day
[03:56:24] <cmn32480> left it all to us FOG
[03:56:35] <cmn32480> just like old times
[03:57:04] <cmn32480> you guys get a day off too
[03:57:18] <cmn32480> sadly, you haven't been here long enough to get to that point...
[03:57:25] <cmn32480> we shall be docking the day from your editorial pay
[03:57:38] <Bytram> well, i certainly won't complain! Between you and FN, you've pout out on the order of, what, 800?, stories this year! That's a bunch that I did not have to do, and for that I am very grateful.
[03:57:58] <charon> but that was the money i was counting on to buy air
[03:58:10] <cmn32480> it's all in the can at this point
[03:58:28] * Bytram kicks charon in the knee, watches him gasp in pain, and says "There ya go!"
[03:58:44] <charon> you're all heart, guys
[03:58:48] * Bytram notes the emphasis should be on the word "gasp"
[03:59:01] <Bytram> charon: s/he/f/
[03:59:01] <sedctl> <Bytram> <charon> you're all fart, guys
[03:59:04] <exec> <Bytram> <charon> you're all fart, guys
[03:59:20] <Bytram> charon: s/all/old/
[03:59:20] <sedctl> <Bytram> <charon> you're old heart, guys
[03:59:21] <cmn32480> but when I fired him.. he left in a real huff
[03:59:23] <exec> <Bytram> <charon> you're old heart, guys
[03:59:35] <Bytram> cmn32480: Goodone!
[03:59:55] * charon reconsiders joining chat
[04:00:00] <Bytram> lol
[04:00:03] <cmn32480> prolly not the "high" note of his career
[04:00:18] <Bytram> and me decides it is time for his beauty sleep (and boy does he ever need it!)
[04:00:39] <cmn32480> it hasn't helped so far
[04:00:51] <cmn32480> maybe today will be the day
[04:01:00] <Bytram> maybe he was rehearsing for a part in a play as "The Big Bad Wolf" who would huff and puff and blooooow your hours down!
[04:01:14] <cmn32480> lol
[04:01:45] * Bytram notes his tpoy skills are approaching that of cmn32480 and that is a sure sign that it istime for him to go tobed.
[04:01:48] * cmn32480 needs to hit the hay too
[04:01:57] <Bytram> whack! whack! whack! whack!
[04:01:57] <cmn32480> gotta get up early and beat on a firewall
[04:02:01] <Bytram> there ya go!
[04:02:05] <charon> ~gnight cmn32480
[04:02:07] * exec seductively integrates a dutch oven of buttmagic with cmn32480
[04:02:09] <Bytram> best of luck to ya!

[04:02:12] * exec implicitly copies a tablespoon of cowbell for Bytram

[04:02:22] * exec casually deletes a zfs volume of init scripts from bytram
[04:02:23] * exec abnormally nudges a chariot of cash toward charon
[04:02:25] <cmn32480> ~gnight charon
[04:02:27] * exec diarrhetically farts a painting of butt butter at charon
[04:02:41] <cmn32480> charon totally won that round
[04:02:57] <charon> cash sure, but i have to take the butt butter too
[04:02:59] <Bytram> diarrhetic butt butter is *winning* ??
[04:03:10] <cmn32480> chariot of cash....
[04:03:15] * Bytram decides he NEVER wants to lose!
[04:03:26] <cmn32480> lol
[04:03:30] <cmn32480> night fellas
[04:03:34] <Bytram> laters
[04:03:36] <charon> take care

[12:57:24] <CoolHand> oops
[13:23:00] <CoolHand> I put one in the politics nexus for this afternoon.. since its the first one of those I've done, someone probably ought to check it over good... My feelings won't be hurt if its changed or nuked..
[13:29:19] <Bytram> CoolHand: Hi! How are you today?
[13:30:38] <CoolHand> Bytram: good how r u?
[13:30:43] <Bytram> FYI: I've already put a story in the politics nexus for today, and JR suggested we keep it to one a day... oh, and he also suggested that we slot it in *between* two normally-scheduled "main page" stories... which I failed to do. DOH!
[13:30:43] <Bytram> cf: https://soylentnews.org

[13:30:52] <Bytram> well, thanks!
[13:31:03] <CoolHand> I put it between, but didn't know we had one..
[13:31:18] <CoolHand> we can just change the date to tomorrow if it's ok otherwise..
[13:31:22] * Bytram will be at a retreat this w/e and expect to get very much not enough sleep, but I'm not unfamiliar with that!
[13:31:48] <Bytram> yes, I think that would be best...
[13:32:09] <Bytram> as for my own submission, I completely forgot about slotting it in half-way between two other stories...
[13:32:15] * Bytram has some rescheduling to do.
[13:34:17] <Bytram> one down, 6 to go!
[13:37:16] <CoolHand> go Bytram go!
[13:37:53] <Bytram> found out we had two great apes stories scheduled to go out... am adding a ref to the 2nd to refer to the first
[13:38:10] <cmn32480> quit monkeying around in the queue!
[13:38:30] <Bytram> and, now we have 419 words in the Intro Copy...
[13:41:20] <CoolHand> Bytram: I'd rather have grape ape stories..
[13:41:44] <CoolHand> grape ape , grape ape...

[13:42:01] <CoolHand> cmn32480: monkeying around.... groan
[13:42:03] <CoolHand> :D
[13:42:37] <Bytram> feh!
[13:43:14] <Bytram> why oh why oh why does "<quote>" get converted into "<div class="quote">" instead of the perfectly cromulent "<blockquote>" ??
[13:43:52] <Bytram> and, for that matter, why does "<blockquote>" become "<blockquote><div>" ??
[13:44:52] <CoolHand> I don't know the answer to that question, if I did I would tell you
[13:45:15] <cmn32480> blame the guys who wrote the html parser
[13:45:20] <Bytram> sorry, that was a rhetorical question expressed so as to vent my spleen a little.
[13:53:41] <cmn32480> it was a rhetorical answer...
[13:55:45] <Bytram> frankly my dear... oh, wait. wrong Rhett!
[13:55:56] <Bytram> or whould that be Rhett Roh?

[14:03:06] <janrinok> CoolHand, I modified you settings on your first pol story. The nexus is Politics, and the topic is news - or at least that is my interpretation of it. You had no nexus and the topic was politics....
[14:03:22] <Bytram> janrinok++ good catch
[14:03:22] <Bender> karma - janrinok: 49
[14:03:54] <Bytram> janrinok++ because I like round numbers and i certainly missed one along the way
[14:03:54] <Bender> karma - janrinok: 50
[14:03:54] <janrinok> Bytram, don't blame a flakey link just because you don't want to talk to us
[14:04:05] <Bytram> WHAT?
[14:04:25] <janrinok> thank you
[14:04:39] <Bytram> hexchatr was showing a 5-second lag... that usually indicates that I'll lose my connection at any time.

[14:05:07] <janrinok> I can read between the lines, you were priming us with that flakey link excuse just in case we start saying things that you dislike - you don't fool us
[14:05:36] <Bytram> "Won't get fooled again!" -- Rolling Stones(?)
[14:05:39] <janrinok> yup - it sounds like it. why is your link iffy today?
[14:07:06] <Bytram> phase of the moon? I dunno -- it's tethered LTE, but we had very high winds yesterday (gusts to 40+MPH) and that can fart around with the towers, I suppose.. Like I said, beats me.
[14:07:26] <janrinok> perhaps the wind blew the radio waves away ...
[14:07:36] * janrinok is good at tech things
[14:08:22] <Bytram> making waves again, I see
[14:08:44] <janrinok> obviously not making enough, you appear to be short of some at your location
[14:09:17] * janrinok does some quick maths to work out how many waves are in 5 seconds ...
[14:09:30] <Bytram> then you'd better flap your arms harder, I can *barely* hear you!
[14:09:36] <janrinok> pardon?
[14:09:41] <Bytram> lol
[14:09:59] <Bytram> maybe if I do some flapping (with something other than my mouth) that would help?
[14:10:00] <janrinok> can you lol louder - it's barely coming through here
[14:10:07] <Bytram> sure, np
[14:10:14] <Bytram> LOL
[14:10:19] <janrinok> ah, got it now
[14:10:26] <Bytram> L O L ! !
[14:10:31] <Bytram> =)
[14:10:40] <Bytram> hmm
[14:11:00] <Bytram> nope
[14:11:21] <Bytram> Ctrl+B gave me bold, wondered if Ctrl+I gave me italics... nope.
[14:11:39] <janrinok> we have a lot of submissions that are being sub'ed as 'Politics' that I don't think should be under that nexus. Anybody got any views on this?
[14:12:10] <Bytram> It's the 'new' thing so everyone wants to play with it?
[14:12:20] <CoolHand> janrinok: thanks for the checkup.. I thought I had it right (like what yours is now), but dunno what happened there
[14:12:41] <Bytram> what they submit is a *suggestion* -- it's up to us as editors to make things *write* ;)
[14:12:49] <CoolHand> Personally I think all Politics stories should be in the nexus unless there is some major tech factor, or it's huge news
[14:13:10] <janrinok> we've reported drones and troop deployments in the past without having to call them politics. Politics is involved in everything, but where there is a general interest or a tech angle then I think we should continue as we have always done
[14:13:28] <Bytram> janrinok++ I concur on that
[14:13:28] <Bender> karma - janrinok: 51
[14:13:44] <Bytram> one more and you'll be playing with a full deck!
[14:14:10] <CoolHand> drones are tech... so I could see that being main page
[14:14:33] <CoolHand> I don't think we can use what we've done in the past as a guidepost, since we haven't had a nexus..
[14:14:47] <CoolHand> (IMHO)
[14:15:02] <janrinok> CoolHand, you had selected politics but left it in the just above the topic indicator and not moved it up one place above the nexus indicator. The editor (software) gets it wrong every time
[14:15:14] <Bytram> My thoughts are that politics would be for something like President Trump being Impeached
[14:15:29] <CoolHand> janrinok: ok, I was wondering if that was it.. I'd meant to check that, but guess not.. .that's why I asked for people to look at it closely.. :D
[14:15:53] <CoolHand> janrinok: thanks again for doing that close check
[14:16:09] <janrinok> the nexuses were Meta, MainPage and Breaking in the past. We have just added a Politics nexus so that readers can filter stories out
[14:17:41] <janrinok> It will take time for both the community and ourselves to get a grip of it, and then we'll have to document it so that we can explain it to others who follow us
[14:17:42] <CoolHand> right.. so now that we have Politics, we should set Politics stories in that Nexus.. the peeps that want to see them will and the ones that don't won't.. that's kina the point, yah?
[14:18:30] <janrinok> yep, that's it. But I would argue (but feel free to disagree) that troop deployments are News and are worthy of the front page
[14:18:51] <Bytram> is news, yes.
[14:18:59] <CoolHand> yeah... borlerline, but, yeah
[14:19:37] <Bytram> Trump's new "VOICE" department / agency / whatever, I would consider to be more in the Politics realm.
[14:20:03] <CoolHand> agree..
[14:21:36] <janrinok> if Americans end up in another hot war then it will affect businesses, politics, oil and fuel prices, and so on. It is not just a political story. On the otherhand, the situation that we had a few months back when people were reporting everything the DJT and HRC were saying, having for breakfast, or every time someone thought that a political point could be made was pure politics. Many of our community got
[14:21:36] <janrinok> sick of it
[14:22:34] * Bytram was one of many in our community, as it was presented as news... were it in a place slotted for it, then I'd have no troubles with it... hence the politics nexus
[14:22:45] <Bytram> =)
[14:22:50] <Bytram> and, with that, I need a break
[14:22:52] <CoolHand> yep.. although regarding the troop deployment, most of the time it's for international grandstanding/politics, and USUALLY doesn't end in a war...
[14:22:53] <Bytram> biab
[14:23:10] <janrinok> CoolHand, lets hope this time is no different
[14:23:18] <CoolHand> janrinok: agreed!
[14:24:00] <janrinok> but if US marines and Russian marines come face to face in Syria, things might not go the way any government had planned it
[14:29:53] <Bytram> janrinok: s/might/probably will/
[14:29:54] <sedctl> <Bytram> <janrinok> but if US marines and Russian marines come face to face in Syria, things probably will not go the way any government had planned it
[14:29:56] <exec> <Bytram> <janrinok> but if US marines and Russian marines come face to face in Syria, things probably will not go the way any government had planned it
[14:30:26] <janrinok> my nits have been picked
[14:31:21] <janrinok> I would hope that both sets of troops have been advised to avoid such a thing - but with too much confusion/testosterone around it might be ignored

[18:14:54] <cmn32480> amiwrong?
[18:16:05] <janrinok> nope
[18:16:09] <cmn32480> ok then
[18:16:20] <cmn32480> :-)
[18:16:29] <cmn32480> sorry I dissappeared the other day
[18:16:40] <cmn32480> CFO and I got to takling about an issue adn by the time I got back you was gone
[18:17:00] <janrinok> it was time for my bed and I to get better acquainted
[18:17:11] <cmn32480> understandable
[18:17:23] <janrinok> you were just about to explain - I think - what happened to the 'new guy'
[18:17:26] <cmn32480> that mapping the inside of your eyelids project again?
[18:17:34] <cmn32480> FORMER new guy
[18:17:38] <janrinok> yup, nearly finished one side
[18:17:46] <cmn32480> had to fire him
[18:17:48] <janrinok> lol - ah, there is a back story
[18:17:55] <cmn32480> oh yes
[18:17:55] <janrinok> before you employed him?
[18:18:02] <cmn32480> after, unfortunately
[18:18:06] <cmn32480> he was here a week
[18:18:18] <cmn32480> started while I was out of the office last week
[18:18:28] <cmn32480> so the first day I dealt with him was Wednesday
[18:18:49] <cmn32480> I was on a call with a customer, and as is my custom, I pace around the conference table that is outside my office
[18:18:54] <cmn32480> basically doing laps
[18:19:07] <cmn32480> I heard a weird noise from wher his desk is
[18:19:28] <cmn32480> I looked over and found him huffing the contents of a can of canned air up his nose
[18:19:37] <janrinok> lol
[18:19:37] <cmn32480> right there in the open
[18:20:00] <cmn32480> I Trumped him.
[18:20:06] <cmn32480> YOU'RE FIRED!]
[18:20:15] <cmn32480> un real
[18:20:26] <janrinok> did he offer any defence?
[18:20:26] <cmn32480> first point where I saw it I got vapor lock.
[18:20:38] <cmn32480> took me about 3 seconds to realize what he was doing
[18:21:06] <cmn32480> no defence that wasn't an outright lie
[18:21:19] <janrinok> I'll bet you don't get a Christmas card from him
[18:21:23] <cmn32480> "It's my first time... this isn't me... , etc"
[18:21:43] <cmn32480> the guy is an addict and I can only hope that he gets help
[18:22:06] <cmn32480> but I do not run a charity... and cannot risk keeping that issue on staff
[18:22:12] <janrinok> so, start looking for someone else?
[18:22:24] <cmn32480> there is too much danger of him hurting himself or someone else
[18:22:26] <cmn32480> yup
[18:22:30] <cmn32480> square 1
[18:22:58] <cmn32480> I ahve one guy who seems interested... and I am gonna bring in for a face to face interview after I get back from Texas
[18:23:21] <janrinok> add 'do you take drugs in any form?' to your list of questions
[18:23:35] <cmn32480> asked and answered already
[18:23:48] <cmn32480> will you pass a drug test?
[18:23:54] <janrinok> of course, I wouldn't have expected him to tell the truth
[18:24:35] <cmn32480> well... for us, being in a scissor lift, it can be dangerous.. adn that might be a necessary step
[18:25:17] <janrinok> I guess he won't be asking your company for a reference
[18:25:45] <cmn32480> nor would he get one
[18:26:23] <cmn32480> it was rather unreal
[18:26:34] <janrinok> in the meantime you have to keep clocking up the air miles
[18:26:41] <cmn32480> correct
[18:26:52] <cmn32480> it is what it is
