[01:29:13] <Bytram> takyon: as for "?" in story titles... Betteridge says "No!"
[01:29:57] <nick> Bytram, unless you can phrase the question in such a way the common sense answer is yes
[01:30:17] <Bytram> "Can you say Yes?"
[01:31:17] <charon_> what would you say if I asked you what the other guy would say if I asked him if this was the right path?
[01:31:32] <nick> that's how ive done it before, if i recall i did it only a headline that had a ? that would trip up on betteridge, so i rephrased it ... no one brings it up then for some reason
[01:32:14] <Bytram> I've 2nded a few stories where I "de-Betteridged" the title =)
[01:32:30] <Bytram> generally, anything along the lines of:
[01:32:36] <chromas> By appending a "Maybe"?
[01:32:41] <Bytram> Can you believe $foo?

[17:43:17] <n1_> was coincidence that i happened to notice the empty queue after i subbed the cameroon story
[17:43:44] <n1_> which im not sure if i made a sub on it before, but i think it's pretty important
[17:44:24] <Bytram> did you "sanitize" the "oo" stories?
[17:44:29] * Bytram goes to look
[17:44:58] <n1_> i had a look and didn't think there was anything particularly offensive
[17:46:09] <Bytram> yep, just check el salvadore story and looked kewel
[17:46:48] * Bytram looks at cameroon
[17:47:10] <n1_> i changed the headline on the trump-isp story but left the content as-is
[17:48:16] <n1_> there's more good stuff in the first article on cameroon, which could be worth including for context
[17:49:23] <Bytram> yeah, I see you are in the story...
[17:49:25] <Bytram> backing out
[17:49:27] <Bytram> nograb
[17:50:03] <n1_> im not doing anything with it, as is the rules of not accepting your own subs

[18:09:10] <takyon> one thing we might want to add to the internet privacy bill story if you are running that
[18:09:22] <takyon> is that ISPs have pledged not to sell the data
[18:09:38] <takyon> and they could do so right now since the rules never entered effect
[18:10:18] <Bytram> sorry, connection "burped"
[18:12:34] <Bytram> takyon: pls repeat
[18:12:43] <takyon> one thing we might want to add to the internet privacy bill story if you are running that
[18:12:50] <takyon> is that ISPs have pledged not to sell the data. and they could do so right now since the rules never entered effect
[18:13:09] <Bytram> I think that was already in the story.
[18:13:51] <takyon> ok
[18:14:02] <takyon> missed it, it's subtle
[18:14:18] <Bytram> and mangled English, as well, which I [sic]ed
[18:14:42] <Bytram> President Trump signed the bill on Monday [April 4], which means while many ISPs say they will not sell respect[sic] customers privacy and won't flag their browsing history and other personal data, they can now do so under the new rules.
[18:15:00] <Bytram> I checked and that IS verbatim from the linked site
[18:15:51] <takyon> i think the pledge might have ran as a separate story in some cases
[18:19:48] <Bytram> okay, seeing word soup... I clicked update. I fixed a couple links to match up with their location in the origininal quoted source, and added ref to Michael Copps to identify source of common cause statement.

[18:58:01] <Bytram> nuclear option invoked; filibuster option gone for SCOTUS nominees.
[18:58:35] <Bytram> "With ideological control of the nation's highest court at stake, the Republican-led Senate voted 52-48 along party lines on Thursday to change its long-standing rules in order to prohibit a procedural tactic called a filibuster against Supreme Court nominees."
[19:02:31] <takyon> I wrote the story from scratch so it took a while
[19:05:30] <Bytram> np, I pushed out a couple stories in the meantime
[19:06:07] <Bytram> btw, lne of the key features of the new console is putting DX12 into silicon.... dramatically reduces load on CPU so it can make much better use of the GPU
[19:08:49] <takyon> I guess that explains why the CPU-GPU gap is widening

[22:18:36] <takyon> you fucked up your timestamps a bit lol
