[01:38:49] <cmn32480> \/me points charon_ and n1 to the pot and the plate to help themselves
[01:41:23] * Bytram graciously accepts the warm gesture
[01:42:18] * Bytram was up at 3am to be at work by 5am -- new fixtures for all our merchandise in two whole bays... on the order of 30 cases of stock that needed to be switched over.
[01:43:19] * Bytram is grateful that after that he could mail out his taxes, and get home in time to take a 99 minute nap.
[01:43:47] <Bytram> charon: thanks for filling the story queue -- much obliged
[01:44:16] <Bytram> might have to promote you to FNSNG -- Friendly Not-So-New Guy
[01:44:59] <cmn32480> see... I read that as F88king-New-Senior-New Guy
[01:46:49] * Bytram likes that better
[01:47:06] * Bytram was just rifffing on the ols definition
[01:47:14] <cmn32480> though, I don't THINK charon_ is Mexican...
[01:47:54] <Bytram> s/ols/old/
[01:47:55] <sedctl> <Bytram> was just rifffing on the old definition

[01:48:08] * Bytram goes to fetch his dinner
[01:49:15] * Bytram feels musical tonight -- is having a big bowl of baked beans
[01:49:59] <n1> i want baked beans damn it!
[01:51:05] * cmn32480 is musical that way naturally... no artifical extras needed!
[01:51:19] <Bytram> So, you want to toot your OWN horn?
[01:51:47] <cmn32480> it ain't my horn that is tooting...
[01:52:04] <cmn32480> sweet.. the pfsense repo has nano
[01:52:10] <cmn32480> that'll make it easier
[01:53:01] <Bytram> just a "small" matter, I presume?
[01:53:22] <cmn32480> easiest text editor for me to use
[01:53:31] <cmn32480> new firewall is FreeBSD based
[01:53:42] <cmn32480> so /me is learnding
[01:54:09] <Bytram> good luck!
[01:54:38] * cmn32480 greatfully accepts all luck that is presented as long as it isn't bad.
[01:55:30] <n1> http://www.telesurtv.net
[01:55:33] <exec> └─ 13Reason Why Guiana's Strikers Blocked Access to Space Satellite | News | teleSUR English
[01:55:47] <Bytram> ... If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...
[01:57:01] <charon_> darn customers
[01:58:11] <cmn32480> WOOT!
[01:58:23] <cmn32480> \I can now pull from the Free BSD package repo
[01:58:33] * cmn32480 does the truffle shuffle
[02:01:47] * charon_ glares at cmn32480 like Ma Fratelli
[02:02:52] <cmn32480> pkg add Truffle_sdhuffle
[02:03:23] -!- charon_ has quit [Quit: sloth love chunk]
[02:03:42] <Bytram> cmn32480: s/dh/h/
[02:03:42] <sedctl> <Bytram> <cmn32480> pkg add Truffle_shuffle
[02:03:45] <exec> <Bytram> <cmn32480> pkg add Truffle_shuffle
[02:03:51] <Bytram> break time
[02:14:02] <cmn32480> curse my stupid brain... if it doesn't start cooperating I am gonna stab it with a Q-Tip
[02:27:08] * charon stabs cmn32480's brain with a Q-Tip
[02:27:18] <cmn32480> OW!
[02:27:30] <charon> you're welcome
[02:27:33] <cmn32480> stop that... whatever yourname was
[02:27:40] <charon> heh
[02:41:06] * Bytram 2nds a buncha stories
[02:41:35] * cmn32480 continues wrestling wiht the new firewall
[02:42:51] * Bytram pictures a couple of sumo wrestlers... and shudders
[02:43:12] * cmn32480 thinks that bytram just called him fat
[02:43:36] <Bytram> do you want a thin firewall or a thick one?
[02:44:47] <cmn32480> I prefer my firewalls curvey
[02:45:06] <Bytram> all the better to elude detection
[02:45:17] * cmn32480 snorts
[02:45:48] <cmn32480> I'm currently trying to parse the command line I will need to get Calamaris to run correctly
[02:46:09] <cmn32480> I'm slightly concerned because the software is only minimally maintained anymore....
[02:46:31] <Bytram> nod nod -- I saw you mention it earlier
[02:46:55] <cmn32480> but... if it gives me what I need... I'll take it
[02:47:21] <Bytram> the firewall logs gotta be written somewhere... ain't too hard to craft up a Perl or AWK script to extract what you want to know
[02:47:37] <cmn32480> calamaris is exactly that
[02:47:52] <cmn32480> it's a perl script that gives me a text output of the Squid logs
[02:48:08] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:48:10] <cmn32480> pkg search sendmail
[02:48:13] <cmn32480> bah
[02:48:17] <cmn32480> wrong window
[02:48:44] <Bytram> 2nding last story
[02:49:58] <Bytram> done
[02:50:16] <Bytram> and that's gonna be it for me... time for some beauty sleep, and I sure needs it! ;)
[02:50:24] <cmn32480> excellent.. pfsense has a report mailer package
[02:50:33] <Bytram> Noice!
[02:51:20] <cmn32480> blessedly configurable from the gui
[02:53:56] <cmn32480> I will say.. I am learning quite a lot
[03:01:20] <Fnord666> I'm back!
[03:01:45] <Fnord666> did you miss me?
[03:02:34] <Fnord666> I guess not
[03:02:40] <cmn32480> FNJNG
[03:03:13] <cmn32480> and no, Fnord666 not really
[03:03:28] <Fnord666> :)
[03:04:09] <Fnord666> a plague on you and your firewall
[03:04:33] <cmn32480> see these pustuales on my hands?
[03:04:50] <Fnord666> Wait till the toad start coming down.
[03:04:53] * cmn32480 flings some of the pustual by-product in Fnord's general direction
[03:05:17] <Fnord666> hey leave that sort of stuff to exec
[03:05:34] <cmn32480> ~gday Fnord666
[03:05:36] * exec presumably rubs a treasure chest of 💩 on Fnord666
[03:05:46] <cmn32480> heh... you were right
[03:05:53] <Fnord666> ~gday cmn32480
[03:05:55] * exec clumsily runs the Installshield Wizard to set up a ring buffer of boiled dog stuffed with rice for cmn32480
[03:06:06] <cmn32480> interesting
[03:06:07] <Fnord666> well that's a new one
[03:06:29] <Fnord666> How's everyone?
[03:07:16] <cmn32480> fighting with the new firewall...
[03:07:24] <cmn32480> and bytram call ed me a sumo wrestler
[03:07:49] <cmn32480> though I can only assume it was a typo and he meant a sudo wrestler... since a lot of this is being done in the shell
[03:08:00] <Fnord666> cmn32480++
[03:08:00] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 89
[03:08:11] <Fnord666> well played
[03:08:28] * cmn32480 takes a bow
[03:08:49] * Fnord666 takes an arrow
[03:08:56] <Fnord666> to the knee
[03:09:07] <Fnord666> I used to be an adventurer you know
[03:09:22] <cmn32480> before the flu knocked you on your ass for 2 weeks?
[03:09:33] <Fnord666> something like that.
[03:09:53] <Fnord666> upper respiratory infection actually.
[03:10:09] <cmn32480> its understandable... flu is fucking nasty... and I empathize with people who get it
[03:10:11] <cmn32480> oh
[03:10:27] <Fnord666> getting better now but busy as a one armed paper hanger at work these last two weeks also
[03:10:41] <cmn32480> inhaled some jizz at the glory hole huh?
[03:10:58] <Fnord666> down the wrong pipe is never a good thing
[03:11:37] <cmn32480> normally a statement like that will beget chromas popping in at just the right time to do a !grab
[03:11:53] <chromas> Bender: grab Fnord666
[03:11:53] <Bender> Added quote 62
[03:12:13] <cmn32480> late...
[03:12:16] * chromas missed his chance :'(
[03:12:58] <Fnord666> It's quality abuse like this that keeps me coming back.
[03:13:11] <Fnord666> :)
[03:13:25] <cmn32480> we aim to please... but apparently so did that guy who sent it down the wrong pipe
[03:13:26] <cmn32480> ll
[03:14:53] <Fnord666> Decided it was time to get a pre pwned firewall eh?
[03:15:12] <cmn32480> it's all open source...
[03:15:22] <chromas> Microsoft® Windows® Firewall™
[03:15:32] <cmn32480> pfsense
[03:15:36] <Fnord666> and?
[03:15:41] <cmn32480> freebsd based
[03:15:52] <Fnord666> ah
[03:15:58] <cmn32480> so liekly better than running a windows box...
[03:16:17] <Fnord666> the problem with open source is the tragedy of the commons
[03:16:27] <Fnord666> everyone thinks the other guy checked it out
[03:16:42] <cmn32480> me can't rad code
[03:16:47] <cmn32480> *read
[03:17:19] <Fnord666> There's a better chance that it's been reviewed, at least somewhat, but no guarantees
[03:17:30] <cmn32480> exactly
[03:17:34] <Fnord666> but I do like pfsense
[03:17:44] <cmn32480> I'm a noob
[03:17:46] <Fnord666> is this for home or work?
[03:17:55] <cmn32480> so far I like it.. but there are certain things that are a bit lacking
[03:17:58] <cmn32480> work
[03:18:16] <Fnord666> at the edge or internal?
[03:18:20] <cmn32480> edge
[03:18:27] <cmn32480> at multiple locations
[03:18:38] <cmn32480> so also handling site to site IPSec
[03:18:40] <Fnord666> presumbaly a VPN endpoint also?
[03:18:51] <cmn32480> and Open VPN for the road warrioirs
[03:19:30] <Fnord666> You'll learn a lot
[03:19:48] <cmn32480> so far I ahve
[03:20:02] <cmn32480> one of the things I learned was how to make it pull from the FreeBSD repos
[03:20:21] <cmn32480> one big plus is that there is a LOT of doc
[03:20:31] <cmn32480> and a seemingly active user community
[03:20:40] <Fnord666> both big positives.
[03:21:03] <Fnord666> Docs are sometimes one of the things that open source lacks
[03:21:16] <Fnord666> Especially projects without full time resources.
[03:21:24] <cmn32480> yeah
[03:21:35] <Fnord666> everyone likes writing code. No one likes writing documentation
[03:21:53] <chromas> Bender: grab Fnord666
[03:21:53] <Bender> Added quote 63
[03:22:08] <cmn32480> words that TheMightyBuzzard lives by
[03:22:15] <Fnord666> and rewriting with new screenshots after every release
[03:22:35] <cmn32480> I hate to cut the party short on your big coming back party Fnord666, but I gotta get my ass to bed
[03:22:53] <Fnord666> no problem. I should head there too before too long.
[03:23:05] <cmn32480> yeah
[03:23:08] <Fnord666> Had a few moments and wanted to drop in
[03:23:13] <cmn32480> you need to rest after your... incident
[03:23:16] <Fnord666> see how everyone was doing
[03:23:22] <cmn32480> we are all still here
[03:23:29] <cmn32480> no real word from JR
[03:23:39] <Fnord666> was just about to ask about that
[03:23:48] <cmn32480> he apparently emailed w/ takyon regarding the new version of the extension
[03:23:58] <cmn32480> so he's still around at least
[03:24:44] <Fnord666> at least he hasn't fallen off the edge of the earth then
[03:24:51] <cmn32480> exactly
[03:25:10] * cmn32480 breathes a little sigh of relief anytime somebody says they heard from him
[03:25:27] <cmn32480> OH!
[03:25:29] * Fnord666 agrees
[03:25:36] <Fnord666> IO!
[03:25:43] <cmn32480> and bytram had baked beans for dinner... so you may want to avoid close contact
[03:26:08] <cmn32480> like a 500 mile radius
[03:26:09] <Fnord666> That's good to know.
[03:26:32] <cmn32480> I heard there was a fish kill starting up in the portland Maine area... no explanation quite yet
[03:26:54] <Fnord666> oh dear
[03:28:00] <cmn32480> anyway
[03:28:03] <cmn32480> off to bed with you
[03:28:06] <cmn32480> and me
[03:28:10] <Fnord666> and you
[03:28:10] <cmn32480> separately
[03:28:14] <Fnord666> yes please
[03:28:19] <cmn32480> ~gnight Fnord666
[03:28:20] * exec emphatically planks a FAT32 volume of coal for Fnord666
[03:28:21] <Fnord666> I tend to steal the covers
[03:28:27] <Fnord666> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:28:29] * exec homogeneously internalizes a steel drum of alternative news in cmn32480
[03:29:26] <n1> http://www.chicagotribune.com
[03:29:28] <exec> └─ 13Trump administration says Iran complying with nuclear deal - Chicago Tribune
[03:29:32] <n1> i nearly fell off my chair...
[03:30:58] <charon> hiyo Fnord666
[03:31:06] <Fnord666> howdy charon n1
[03:31:15] <Fnord666> how are the two of you?
[03:31:41] <charon> i'm alright. mostly the same old same old. except work is starting to pick up.
[03:32:00] <Fnord666> That time of year
[03:32:05] <charon> and yourself? you were saying to cmn that you were sick?
[03:32:23] <charon> my sympathies, hope you are feeling over the weather
[03:32:41] <Fnord666> Getting over an upper respiratory infection. Allergies caught me by surprise
[03:33:07] <charon> those trees, always fucking in our air
[03:33:38] <Fnord666> yup
[03:33:47] <Fnord666> feeling better now though.
[03:34:10] <charon> good good
[03:34:42] <Fnord666> the story queue was pretty bleak this weekend
[03:34:57] <charon> it was. i totally blame myself
[03:35:10] <Fnord666> ~blame
[03:35:12] * exec points at Bytram
[03:35:24] <Fnord666> exec disagrees
[03:35:48] <charon> exec is biased
[03:36:02] <charon> he really has it in for bytram
[03:36:40] <Fnord666> I know. There's some interesting backstory there I'm guessing
[03:36:51] <charon> i actually didn't do much at all on the site this last week. feel a bit guilty. but only a bit
[03:38:19] <Fnord666> Figured you were getting slammed at work
[03:38:55] <charon> that's part of it. over the weekend in particular, i had no chance to take a break
[03:39:36] * n1 orders a new set of whips
[03:40:17] <charon> violence in the workplace!
[03:41:21] <n1> it's good for morale
[03:41:26] <Fnord666> Normally you have to pay a premium for that
[03:42:13] <charon> really? and here i've been getting it for free
[03:42:29] <n1> one of the perks
[03:50:02] <charon> Fnord666: did you stay home from work or go in while ill?
[03:52:07] <Fnord666> I was out one day and worked from home a couple of days.
[03:53:58] <Fnord666> my work environment has a pretty robust remote infrastructure
[03:54:11] <Fnord666> and everyone has laptops these days
[03:54:51] <Fnord666> And given the number of desks on our LAN I probably get better throughput
[03:56:07] <Fnord666> It's also helpful because any updates go in in the 2am to 5am timeframe and it beats driving in to work in the predawn hours
[04:02:10] <charon> i imagine so
[04:02:48] <charon> glad they didn't try to insist you come in and be miserable there
[04:03:16] <Fnord666> although I usually got a ton of work done in that early morning timeframe before everyone else came in.
[04:04:14] <Fnord666> Fortunately my workplace is pretty good about that and really don't want people to be spreading illness around when you can do your job just as well from home.
[04:04:52] <charon> they need to spread that word to other employers
[04:08:48] <Fnord666> Only works for certain types of jobs unfortunately
[04:12:04] <charon> i guess. i am not going to be using a laptop or telepresence bot for my job any time soon
[04:14:22] <Fnord666> :)
[04:16:25] <Fnord666> I better be heading off to bed. Talk to you later!
[04:16:55] <Fnord666> Have a good night charon
[04:20:08] <charon> gnight Fnord666, sleep well
