[00:04:20] <mrpg> i didnt want to read it. now i have to. i dont think we should post that, gossip.
[00:07:34] <Deucalion> mrpg, what's the url for the hold Q again? My click-fu is broken at this point....
[00:08:02] <Deucalion> I found it :D
[00:08:36] <Bytram> it's a pull down at the top of the submissions list page: https://soylentnews.org section: [Hold]
[00:08:38] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews Submissions
[00:08:48] <Bytram> ooops
[00:08:55] <Bytram> Classification: Hold
[00:09:01] <Deucalion> Yup thanks Bytram... I clickied there eventually :D
[00:09:06] <Bytram> hth!
[00:11:19] <Deucalion> I agree the Kardashian one is too far off piste for SN. Possibly the 2F2F one also. Anything with a vaguely science / tech / current affairs bent is fine - but those two just seem a little to gutter topic for us even as 4/1 runners. But I'll leave the final say to yous editors.
[00:12:00] * Deucalion aways to shower off the day's greasy slime... spent most of the day in fast food kitchens today :/
[00:12:26] <Bytram> Deucalion: O. M. G. -- People actually READ that stuff... on purpose? /me cries for humanity
[00:12:30] <Bytram> I concur -- ixnay on kardashian
[00:13:28] <mrpg> i say no

[00:27:31] <Bytram> someone else wants to know which "calima" was intended
[00:28:39] <mrpg> ok :-)
[00:32:08] <mrpg> ready hehehe
[00:34:51] <Deucalion> mrpg, we don't need to fill the entirety of 4/1 with these kind of stories, feel free to intermingle the usual subs amongst the foolishness. Probably works better doing a mixup like that anyways :D

[00:52:26] <takyon> um
[00:52:32] <takyon> its obviously for april first
[00:52:46] <takyon> I was also careful to not imply any of it was necessarily true to minimize any legal risk
[00:53:26] <mrpg> well, I'm tired, I leave you to work, dont leave before the boss.
[00:53:44] <mrpg> see you tomorrow, bye.
[00:55:24] <Deucalion> bye mrpg
[00:56:06] <Deucalion> and who's the boss anyway? Mostly mob rules vague democracy around here :D
[00:56:51] <mrpg> hmm the elders are not online, that's right.

[12:50:02] <mrpg> Hello good morning.
[12:52:34] <cmn32480> ~gday mrpg
[12:52:35] * exec cohesively deallocates a raid 2 volume of weed from mrpg
[12:54:26] <Bytram> ~gday cmn32480
[12:54:27] * exec accidentally pits a keg of grainy keyboard crumbs against cmn32480
[12:54:37] <cmn32480> ~gday bytram
[12:54:38] * exec casually poops a hatful of cocaine for bytram
[12:54:58] <Bytram> and I was just thinking about taking a nap ;)
[12:55:17] <Bytram> you still on the road or back in town?
[12:55:27] <cmn32480> at the office for the short term
[12:55:32] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:55:42] <Bytram> where next?
[12:56:22] <cmn32480> uhhhhh
[12:56:36] <cmn32480> one day in NJ and 2 days in Texas next week
[12:56:43] <cmn32480> then 3 days in Philadelphia
[12:57:12] <Bytram> TX again? Same shop or a different one?
[12:57:13] * Bytram has a very laggy connection atm
[12:57:42] <cmn32480> same one
[12:58:11] <cmn32480> the guy from their internal team that was supposed to do this part has had his appendix removed in a rather sudden fashion and is currently unavailable
[12:58:21] <Bytram> wimp
[12:58:25] <cmn32480> lol
[12:58:28] <Bytram> j/k
[12:58:47] <cmn32480> I said somethign to the effect of "some people will do ANYTHING to get out of working for a living"
[12:59:15] <Bytram> well, at least you know your way around the area... should make things a bit easier this time around
[12:59:35] <cmn32480> at least it is only 2 days
[12:59:36] * Bytram can attest that spending time in a hospital ain't a lot of fun, either.
[12:59:40] <cmn32480> yeah
[12:59:40] <Bytram> yuppers
[13:00:07] <mrpg> When I was studying English I met a girl from texus, buddy. Blonde, pretty, red cheeks. I wrote her a C love program. nerd.

[13:00:41] <cmn32480> ewww
[13:01:03] <Bytram> no, that's a good thing!
[13:01:18] <cmn32480> I know.. but still ewwwww
[13:01:21] <Bytram> imagine having a 3mm button glued to the tip of your finger
[13:01:46] <Bytram> whatever I touched, I would feel, but not at the point of contact, but instead deeper into the finger
[13:02:12] <Bytram> hey, how's your ankle? back to normal?
[13:03:51] <cmn32480> the nerve of your finger behaving like that
[13:03:59] <cmn32480> ankle is mostly back to normal

[22:31:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> squish it
[22:31:46] <takyon> there is no reason I can see that there shouldn't be an extra line break in between the first and second paragraphs
[22:32:07] <takyon> I previewed it multiple times, deleted the spacing and added line breaks back, but it kept showing up like that
[22:32:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> it looks fine to me
[22:33:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> are you wanting two line breaks for some reason?
[22:33:17] <takyon> the spacing is not matching the expected behavior
[22:33:39] <takyon> I always submit in Plain Old Text mode
[22:33:53] <takyon> so any line break I add should be converted properly
[22:33:58] <takyon> this seems to have not done that
[22:34:14] <takyon> "[...]Exactly" I thought I had a space in there too
[22:34:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya but i'm unclear on what you're after
[22:34:36] <takyon> the input and the output are not matching
[22:34:43] <takyon> how many times do I hvae to explain it
[22:34:43] <cmn32480> hooters and booze
[22:35:01] <takyon> this is some cray shit
[22:35:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> HOW are they not matching?
[22:35:22] <takyon> a line break disappeared
[22:35:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> from where?
[22:35:33] <takyon> it's supposed to look like the other paragraphs

[22:36:28] <takyon> if you look at the submission code
[22:36:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, i think that was pj what broke it. lemme check something
[22:36:32] <takyon> here's what was spit out
[22:36:33] <takyon> "The safe harbor provisions of the DMCA allow Internet platforms to avoid liability for the infringements of their users. However, it also helps them avoid paying for content, critics say. A new study from the US which aims to put a value on the revenues lost claims that the sums are huge, potentially up to $1 billion per year on YouTube alone.<p>[...] Exactly how much money is at stake is rarely quantified but a new study from the Phoenix
[22:36:33] <takyon> Center in Washington claims to do just that. The numbers cited in 'Safe Harbors and the Evolution of Music Retailing' by authors T. Randolph Beard, PhD, George S. Ford, PhD, and Michael Stern, PhD, are frankly enormous. "Music is vital to YouTube's platform and advertising revenues, accounting for 40% of its views. Yet, YouTube pays the recording industry well-below market rates for this heavy and on-demand use of music by relying on those
[22:36:34] <takyon> 'safe harbor' provisions," the paper begins.</p>"

[22:36:45] <takyon> BYTRAM
[22:36:52] <takyon> I submitted it as Plain Text Mode
[22:36:56] <takyon> it should be automatic
[22:37:15] <takyon> the renderer or whatever you call it didn't add the paragraph tags in the right places
[22:37:28] <takyon> I have to go, I'll check in on IRC tonight
[22:37:44] <Bytram> strange... usually I notice a buncha <br>'s in there when PlainText mode is usedina submission
[22:37:51] <Bytram> k
[22:38:08] <takyon> line breaks are converted into paragraphs in that mode, not BR
[22:38:32] <takyon> it's why I use it. everything just workz
[22:38:58] <charon_> eh, i add the tags to my subs. i never trust a parser
[22:39:03] <Bytram> never seemed to do quite what I wanted it to do, so I always use HTML directly to get finer-grained control

[22:39:26] <takyon> I've submitted over a thousand stories this way, I know when the behavior changes instantly
[22:39:49] * Bytram has found loads of bugs in compilers and operating systems... I *definitely* don't trust automaagic stuff
[22:40:23] <takyon> it didn't break because of a bit flip. it probably broke because of code changes in previous days
[22:40:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, pj monkeyed with the blockquote code in this last update. i forward you to him since he knows what he did and i don't.
[22:40:51] <takyon> I really have to go. make sure he sees the DMCA Youtube sub
[22:40:55] <takyon> later
[22:42:40] <charon_> cmn32480: for this day ony, can i post my own subs?
[22:42:58] * cmn32480 ponders...
[22:43:09] <cmn32480> yeah.. I think it ok
[22:43:24] <charon_> T rex here i come!
[22:44:13] <paulej72> takyon: as part of the update I changed blockquote. I can put it back if needed.
[22:52:56] <paulej72> fixked
[22:53:18] <Bytram> that was quick!
