[11:59:59] <CoolHand> seriously though...
[12:00:08] <cmn32480> what's on your mind?
[12:00:25] <CoolHand> I just scheduled up a story by takyon for jupiter great cold spot.. I checked to make sure it wasn't a dupe, but miissed a recent sub by butthurt for the same thing
[12:00:33] <CoolHand> any way to merge it in to give him credit?
[12:00:57] <cmn32480> accept the story.... set for no display, and copy pasta into the exisitngly scheduled story
[12:01:06] <CoolHand> ahhh
[12:01:09] <cmn32480> tis the only way
[12:01:22] <CoolHand> yeah, I thought there was some trick like that but couldn't remember..

[17:44:07] <cmn32480> dunno
[17:44:09] <charon_> kul wuhad
[17:44:53] <charon_> not that i'm volunteering for death, mind you. but what's up?
[17:44:58] <cmn32480> so what's up in your world?
[17:45:25] <cmn32480> just getting back in off the road.. and certain people ahve been doing what tey are supposed to.. and others... not so much
[17:45:52] <charon_> ah. the cat's away and the mice did play
[17:46:42] <cmn32480> or got f**king lazy... can't decide which
[17:46:54] <cmn32480> and the wife pinged me earlier.. told me she isn't feeling well.
[17:47:02] <cmn32480> says she threw up this morning...
[17:47:18] <cmn32480> first thing I asked was if she's pregnant...
[17:47:31] <cmn32480> she's not responded to me on that ohne
[17:47:35] <charon_> uh oh
[17:48:09] <cmn32480> I got clipped a year ago
[17:48:32] <cmn32480> if she's preggers it ain't from me...
[17:48:40] <charon_> i was trying to find a delicate way of asking about birth control...'
[17:49:00] <cmn32480> the vet took care of that
[17:49:33] <cmn32480> if she's preggers I gotta find a not os delicate way of asking who the father is
[17:50:32] <cmn32480> I'm sure it is liekly a stomachy bug of some sort...
[17:53:44] <charon_> probably
[17:53:57] <cmn32480> or she ate somethign last night that didn't sit
[17:53:59] <charon_> don't jump to conclusions until they're warranted
[17:54:18] * cmn32480 jumps to the food poisoning conclusion
[17:54:28] <charon_> good man
[17:54:30] * cmn32480 notes he needs another bottle of arsenic
[17:54:59] <charon_> great on a salad
[17:55:10] <cmn32480> so I hear
[17:56:11] <charon_> i had a shitty weekend at work, and the fallout is still coming down
[17:56:21] <cmn32480> you break a tool?
[17:56:28] <charon_> no
[17:56:28] <cmn32480> crash the truck?
[17:56:40] <cmn32480> get caught charging your car?
[17:58:33] <cmn32480> hit on the bosses wife?
[17:58:41] <cmn32480> the bosses daughter?
[17:58:45] <charon_> lol
[17:58:52] <cmn32480> the bosses dog?
[17:58:54] <charon_> hang on, had a customer right then
[17:58:58] <charon_> creep
[17:59:15] <cmn32480> that's what they all say,..,.
[17:59:41] <charon_> i did the rental paperwork, then went out with the customer to get him the tool. turns out of the 3 sitting on the lot, all 3 did not function
[18:00:01] <cmn32480> DOH
[18:00:10] <cmn32480> and the customer was pissed adn went to the manager
[18:00:24] <charon_> and we have a mechanic (who doesn't work weekends) who very rarely gets around to fixing the rental fleet
[18:00:40] <cmn32480> oh geez
[18:00:45] <cmn32480> so you are catching the blame?
[18:01:15] <charon_> so one machine mostly worked, gave it to the customer. the other two i took into the mech's room and gave them a ghost ride into a shelf
[18:01:43] <cmn32480> what were they
[18:02:27] <cmn32480> I bet the boss didn't like it that you gave ghost rides to both the wife and daughter
[18:02:32] <charon_> small rototillers
[18:02:42] <charon_> and no, he was not happy
[18:03:02] <charon_> especially since there were customers present who could see how furious i was
[18:03:30] <cmn32480> yes.. I imagine that isn't a good thing
[18:04:17] <charon_> so i got an earful from my boss yesterday, mechanic left early today (maybe because he's pissed at me too) and i am alone with no breaks until closing time
[18:04:26] <cmn32480> woof
[18:04:36] <cmn32480> that can't be legal
[18:04:45] <cmn32480> but, on the upside... you have us fuckers
[18:04:59] <charon_> it's not, but since i'm the only person currently in the store who knows how to do my job...
[18:05:17] <cmn32480> somebody has to be able to at leat cover for you to hit the head
[18:05:29] <cmn32480> or did he bring you a Homer bucket for behind the counter
[18:05:44] <charon_> that's why i keep a stock of empty soda bottles around
[18:07:16] <cmn32480> those must be verra difficult to shit into
[18:12:06] <charon_> always asking the real questions
[18:12:25] <cmn32480> hey... it's IMPORTANT!
[18:15:49] <charon_> if you must know, i strongly prefer to defecate in the privacy of my own apartment
[18:16:26] <cmn32480> home bowl advantage
[18:16:34] * charon_ claps
[18:16:59] * cmn32480 is a part of that club as well
[18:21:15] <charon_> whee, just about to start raining, which means a relatively slow evening
[18:21:29] <cmn32480> but it'll make you think of having to pee all night...
[18:21:37] * cmn32480 is a little evil
[18:22:00] <charon_> ah, piss off
[18:23:12] <n1_> howdy
[18:23:45] <cmn32480> it's #pissoff
[18:23:52] <cmn32480> but you don't ahve those rights to MRpla
[18:23:54] <cmn32480> but you don't ahve those rights to MrPlow
[18:23:58] <cmn32480> #pissoff
[18:24:03] <cmn32480> ~gday n1_
[18:24:04] * exec abnormally crossbreeds a DD cup of virtual private nipples with n1_
[18:24:49] <charon_> hiyo n1_
[18:25:14] <charon_> guess you don't have that right either
[18:25:25] <cmn32480> no
[18:25:29] <cmn32480> I do not
[18:25:35] <charon_> muahahaha
[18:26:14] <cmn32480> I have them for exec
[18:29:12] <charon_> how are things, n1_?
[18:30:53] <n1_> shouldn't complain, but i could
[18:31:11] <n1_> how about for you, charon_
[18:31:49] <charon_> i'm ok. still a bit surly about work, but i'm getting over it
[18:33:52] <n1_> what happened at work?
[18:34:06] <cmn32480> he threw a tantrum
[18:34:12] <charon_> psssh
[18:34:26] <cmn32480> you ain't the first
[18:34:35] <cmn32480> I was pretty pissy this morning too
[18:36:29] <charon_> n1_: my mechanic didn't fix some broken machines. i didn't know they were still broken, so i told a customer, "sure, i have that." i got pissed off when i found out in front of a customer that they didn't work.
[18:37:13] <charon_> then i smashed the place up, set fire to it and walked away with my guitar case. i didn't look back when it exploded
[18:40:23] <cmn32480> be nice until it is time not to be nice
[18:40:37] <n1_> sounds like a reasonable reaction
[18:42:52] * cmn32480 wonders if he has a switch around here that will allow him to route traffic between VLANs for testing
[19:01:15] * charon_ cuts a nice willow switch for cmn32480
[19:02:05] <cmn32480> might work... TCP/Osmosis
[19:06:37] <cmn32480> charon_ - would you happen to have a rototiller I can borrow
[19:07:25] <cmn32480> nothing big... just a small one
[19:08:25] <charon_> yep, just come on up. it does a really good job on human flesh
[19:08:43] <cmn32480> excellent
[19:09:22] <charon_> remember, it has to be returned clean. no bloodstains please
[19:10:17] <cmn32480> if it's a toro... that won't be a problem
[19:10:57] <charon_> honda, it's red too
[19:11:30] <cmn32480> good 'nuff
[19:13:46] <charon_> it may be an urban legend, but my boss claimed that another store once got a wood chipper returned sparkling clean. way too clean. and eventually it turned out to have been used in... disposal
[19:16:59] <cmn32480> it wasn't me... I swear
[19:17:13] * cmn32480 looks around for flashing lights and jhandcuffs
[19:17:39] <cmn32480> if you are gonna do that... you have to clean it... then run a buncha wood through it to dirty i back up
[19:17:41] <cmn32480> duh...
[19:17:43] <chromas> jihadcuffs
[19:17:46] <charon_> exactly
[19:19:11] <charon_> never know what's going to set chromas off
[19:19:30] <chromas> allahu akbar, my friend
[19:19:33] <cmn32480> we;ve been trying for years to switch chromas off... but no luck there either
[19:20:26] * cmn32480 found an HP 1920 that looks like it will do what I is looking for....
[19:20:35] <cmn32480> warehouse_raid++
[19:20:35] <Bender> karma - warehouse_raid: 1
[19:20:56] <charon_> is 97 year old hardware going to interface properly?
[19:21:11] <cmn32480> #smake charon_
[19:21:11] * MrPlow smakes charon_ upside the head with a dead smurf
[19:21:25] <cmn32480> 1920 is the model number... and it'd be 87 years old
[19:21:42] * cmn32480 checks his maths
[19:21:43] <charon_> i think you need new fingers there, buddy
[19:22:02] * cmn32480 is living in 2007...
[19:23:03] * cmn32480 wishes he could get new fingers
[19:23:16] <cmn32480> maybe my typoing would improve as well as my maths skilz
[19:24:24] <charon_> that would be interesting... i can see the ig-nobel prize winning paper: "Improvement in typing skill and speed after digital grafting"
[19:26:25] <cmn32480> I'd sure benefit from it
[19:26:29] <cmn32480> can't ttype fro crap today
[19:26:33] <cmn32480> or any other day
[19:26:39] <cmn32480> welll that isn't true
[19:26:52] <cmn32480> only days ending in y
[19:27:17] <charon_> yep, that about sums it up
[19:33:43] <cmn32480> sums are part of the math problem
[19:37:23] <charon_> ba dum bum *tish*

[19:37:56] <cmn32480> oh
[19:38:00] <cmn32480> we never implemented that
[19:38:05] <cmn32480> nevermind
[19:39:37] <charon_> ~blame
[19:39:38] * exec points at Bytram
[19:49:44] <cmn32480> sweety
[19:49:48] <cmn32480> I was right
[19:49:54] <cmn32480> it was the router that was fucking the VPN
[19:50:15] <cmn32480> soon as I put a switch in and told it to route all the VLANs everythign works like a champ
[19:53:15] <charon_> cool. it pays to have a pile of old hardware sitting around
[19:54:04] <cmn32480> not old hardware...
[19:54:20] <cmn32480> this is a brand new HP1920 that I stole from a customer's order for the purpose of testing this out
[19:54:43] <cmn32480> I'll remove the configs that IO made ot it adn put it backbefore it ships.. I swear
[19:54:54] <cmn32480> I even left a note on the order not to ship without talking to me fisrst
[19:55:26] <charon_> nice. make sure to apologize to the NSA for messing up their data
[19:57:03] <charon_> hmmm... looks like my daughter fits a lot of/possibly all of the symptoms of ADHD. it apparently presents differently in girls than in boys
[20:50:21] <cmn32480> ]time to go home...
[20:50:29] <cmn32480> back later depending on how tired I get
[21:02:15] <n1_> charon_, going to get a diagnosis?
[21:03:21] <charon_> yes. apparently you need to get evaluations from teachers and doctors
[21:06:46] <charon_> i'm not a fan of medicating teenagers. but if it will help her, i'll have to consider it
[21:08:23] <n1_> might not be necessary, even if she does have some disorder or whatever, there can be ways of managing without drugs
[21:09:45] <n1_> that stuff takes time though, but it's better to do that than get on the medicated/sedates train with the rest of the population
[21:10:22] <n1_> of course, sometimes there is no other option, but a last resort in dealing with psychological issues, and very careful research
[21:11:26] <charon_> i agree. but she's doing badly in school, can't focus on anything, and seems deperately unhappy a lot of the time. not sure if she's capable of CBT as she is
[21:13:32] <n1_> one step at a time, all those things could have described me in school... i don't have ADHD, just do not thrive in such environments.
[21:15:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> charon, learning coping skills will be better in the long run if she can manage. they make drugs unnecessary. wish i'd learned some besides alcohol.
[21:20:25] <charon_> man. the reading i've been doing says that the inattentive flavor of ADHD which is more common in girls is often overlooked, and so can persist into adulthood without treatment.
[21:20:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> n1_, strangely enough, the treatment for adhd is stimulants rather than sedatives. it keeps the "pay attention" bits of your brain from falling asleep when you're not especially engaged with what's happening.
[21:21:55] * n1_ is not a doctor
[21:22:36] <charon_> but you play one on TV?
[21:23:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, only in the bedroom.
[21:23:39] * charon_ lets that one pass
[21:23:50] <n1_> https://www.youtube.com
[21:23:52] <exec> └─ 13The Simspons-Hi Dr.Nick! / Neglected food prymaid - YouTube
[21:24:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> charon_, honestly, i'm not sure we should be diagnosing a large bit of the population as all having the same disease. mine's severe enough that i'm nonfunctional without either drugs or kidney-shattering amounts of coffee.
[21:26:20] <charon_> i've been prescribed 3 or 4 different anti-depressants, and none of them make a significant difference. some not even noticable. so overall, i'm not convinced of the wonder of pharmaceuticals. but everyone's got a different set of brain chemistry
[21:27:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, i've gone that route before too. turns out when the adhd is treated, the depression symptoms evaporate.
[21:27:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> but none of the anti-depressants did anything remotely helpful for me.
[21:27:58] <charon_> that is what i hope for my daughter. i think she's a happy kid, but frustrated by school
[21:29:15] <charon_> also, +1 for "kidney shattering"
[21:29:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> first couple weeks of ADHD stims, they're gonna have her going vroom Vroom VROOM but that goes away as you build a tolerance
[21:30:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> not eating the wallpaper wound up but you could definitely get her to clean her room and do some chores
[21:30:34] <charon_> catching pokemon in the park
[21:31:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, it's cheating if you make your kid catch your pokemon
[21:32:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> but it's lawn mowing season now and the house windows and car probably need washing
[21:32:30] <charon_> not me, she's the one interested in it. my eyes glaze over when she talks about pokemon
[21:32:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> suuuure
[21:33:02] <charon_> or i make up stupid ones like baconia, the breakfast pokemon
[21:33:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> mmmmm.... bacon....
[21:33:47] * TheMightyBuzzard frowns
[21:34:08] <charon_> no bacon in the house?
[21:34:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> 34 messages in the past two days. that's too many comments to reply to. think i'll just delete the messages.
[21:35:32] <chromas> Need message grouping
[21:35:45] <chromas> s/u//
[21:35:45] <sedctl> <chromas> Need message groping
[21:35:47] <exec> <chromas> Need message groping
[21:35:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> the new poll needs an I STOLE THE MIGHTY BUZZARD'S ADDERALL! option
[21:36:18] <charon_> that's not an answer to the question
[21:36:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, they are grouped. they're all grouped in one pile in my inbox.
[21:37:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> adderall = two kinds of amphetamine mixed together. kinda does.
[21:37:43] <charon_> so that implies an answer of 0

[22:26:11] <nick> it's only taken a month and a half, but i have finally moved my desk into the room i'm going to use as an office!
[22:26:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> that must be a really heavy desk

[22:28:07] <charon_> heh
[22:28:23] <nick> it was mostly being lazy and not wanting to move the stuff off it
[22:28:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh, well that's a noble pursuit
[22:28:59] <nick> i tried to shift it without moving the stuff, but couldnt get it round through the door
[22:29:07] <charon_> stuck in the middle of the hallway, but its easier to climb over it than move it
[22:29:21] <nick> but now i have a really empty kitchen/living area
[22:29:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> beanbag cjair
[22:29:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> chair even
[22:30:14] <charon_> hiyo mrpg
[22:30:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> adds a touch of class to any room
[22:30:22] <nick> need to make a table and figure out some chairs or something
[22:30:26] <charon_> lovesac FTW
[22:30:38] <nick> maybe make a chair too, because even if its shitty, i wont be the one sitting on it
[22:31:15] <mrpg> hi you guys goodnight
[22:31:29] <chromas> install a server rack. also classy
[22:32:03] <nick> i'd hate to think how much a rack would cost here
[22:32:35] <chromas> Then see how many visitors make the same joke
[22:33:46] <nick> my office is not for joking... maybe i should make a riser, so when people sit across from me i can still be imposing
[22:33:52] <nick> old school management shit
[22:36:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, the "nice rack" joke, yes?
[22:37:09] <chromas> eggzactly
[22:37:15] * TheMightyBuzzard nods to self
[22:37:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> good. my brain ain't off on a strange tangent then. it does that sometimes.
[22:43:12] <mrpg> should the spammer story be "security"?
[22:43:53] * TheMightyBuzzard shurgs
[22:44:28] <nick> mrpg, security and news would be my choices
[22:44:30] <charon_> sure. security + news
[22:44:37] <charon_> ninja'd
[22:44:43] <mrpg> ok
[23:02:32] <mrpg> Should I do this "Unraveling of Shoelaces Studied"?
[23:05:29] <mrpg> shiny circles are cds
[23:05:41] <mrpg> shiny rainbowy circles
[23:08:52] <charon_> unravelling shoelaces? how much is there to study?
[23:10:38] <mrpg> no, the thing is why they do it after a while.
[23:10:49] <mrpg> which forces are at work?
[23:11:00] <mrpg> gravity? inertia? gnomes?
[23:18:17] <charon_> gnomes
[23:18:20] <charon_> definitely
[23:18:48] <charon_> come to think of it, my son can't keep his tied for some reason. the knot just falls out
[23:19:51] <mrpg> blame gravity and inertia.
[23:20:17] <takyon> give him velcro
[23:20:37] <charon_> velcro is probably the answer
[23:20:57] <charon_> or teach him to tie them right. mine never unravel
[23:21:21] <mrpg> ~blame
[23:21:22] * exec points at Bytram
[23:21:34] <takyon> triple loop it
[23:22:02] <mrpg> not too much or the circulation might suffer
[23:22:31] <charon_> encase feet in cement. here are your shoes for the next year, son
[23:23:25] <mrpg> good, he will develop strong leg muscles.
[23:23:32] <chromas> plus it teaches lessons about snitching
[23:24:24] <takyon> I wonder if I could get shoes with depleted uranium in them
[23:24:33] <takyon> sleek, but good for those leg muscles
[23:25:43] <takyon> I just subbed the best VR story
[23:30:18] <charon_> sweet. now in the future i can not make facial expressions at all, but the computer will still know
[23:30:29] <takyon> so... VR poker?
[23:30:53] <charon_> hah
[23:30:57] <takyon> pretty funny I thought of sex before poker (poke 'er?)
[23:31:03] <charon_> bender wins again
[23:38:32] <mrpg> Well, i'm off to watch resident evil retribution again, bye have fun.
