[02:30:56] <takyon> I'm going to hammer out the 420 article, hopefully before morning
[02:31:00] * nick burps
[02:31:07] <takyon> also, is the spoiler tag CSS or JavaScript based
[02:31:14] <takyon> I wanted to use it to hide large sections of the story
[02:31:46] <nick> not a clue
[02:31:55] <takyon> i'm guessing it's CSS based and will just display the text if someone has stylesheets turned off
[02:32:08] <cmn32480> TheMightyBuzzard, see above
[02:32:20] <takyon> which would be a lot fewer than the users that don;t use javascript
[02:32:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, css
[02:33:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> likely only gewg_ will see it as not a spoiler.
[02:33:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> far as i know he's the only idjit who utterly blocks css
[02:33:48] <cmn32480> the who cares!
[02:48:17] <takyon> the previous articles were long as hell anyway
[02:51:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> i freakin lurve stripe

[02:56:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> actually meant the payment processor. add two lines in one of our templates and we'll be accepting bitcoin again tomorrow.
[02:56:55] <takyon> you love money
[02:57:10] <charon> i love harold ramis
[02:57:17] <cmn32480> God rest his soul
[02:57:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, nah, i just say that to get it into bed.

[02:58:36] * exec diabolically sets a shitton of aptitude by TheMightyBuzzard
[02:58:36] <Bytram> ~gnight TheMightyBuzzard
[02:58:38] * exec readily combines a loaded diaper of windows 7 with TheMightyBuzzard
[02:58:41] <takyon> to anyone who is still here, I want to do a mini outline of the fo twenty article
[02:59:18] <takyon> I had a better one as a shower thought, but I didn't write it down
[02:59:26] <takyon> so far I've got these sections planned
[02:59:36] <takyon> Legalization status (aka Canada)
[02:59:50] <takyon> Trump and Weed (particularly Jeff Sessions)
[02:59:59] <takyon> The Opioid Crisis
[03:00:16] <takyon> and Science (any new research)
[03:01:52] <charon> that's a lot of weed

[03:03:20] * cmn32480 calls it a night
[03:03:25] <cmn32480> the eyes won't stay open
[03:03:35] <charon> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:03:37] * exec unnecessarily spews an NTFS volume of dark humor on cmn32480
[03:03:44] <cmn32480> ~gnight charon
[03:03:45] * exec flatulantly gives a snatched purse full of pre-snorted fridge mold to charon
[03:03:57] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[03:03:59] * exec metrosexually runs the Installshield Wizard to set up a beaker of jargon for cmn32480

[03:04:05] * exec abrasively heaps a vial of regulations on bytram
[03:10:48] <takyon> oh boy I can make nested spoilers
[03:10:59] <takyon> they look a little bizarre though
[03:11:08] <takyon> I probably won't do that, that's just crazy
[03:12:45] <charon> excessive
[03:29:28] <takyon> so many emojis

[04:10:51] <takyon> hi
[04:14:29] -!- nick has quit [Ping timeout: 276 seconds]
[04:18:14] <takyon> here's a feature I could add to the extension
[04:18:25] <takyon> automatically expand all spoilers when an editor is editing a story
[04:18:42] <takyon> heck, I might add this immediately for myself
[04:27:43] <takyon> yay, it works
[04:27:47] <takyon> feature achieved
[09:30:47] -!- NCommander has quit [Quit: Coyote finally caught me]
[12:47:08] <Bytram> cmn32480: I'm looking at the latest NC novel... would appreciate your thoughts on some rewording I'm working on...
[12:47:15] <Bytram> orig:
[12:47:22] <Bytram> <p>While systemd in and of itself while greatly disliked by all of us, was not a dealbreaker in and of itself, the lack of stability, and a serious sense that the upgrade would be a mistake, I felt it was time to reopen the scenario if we were better off migrating to a different distro, or abandoning Linux entirely.
[12:47:28] <Bytram> proposed rewrite:
[12:47:34] <Bytram> <p>Though greatly disliked by all of us, systemd being part of Ubuntu 16.04 was not a deal breaker in and of itself. More importantly was the sense that the release lacked stability and we had a serious sense that the upgrade would be problematic.
[12:47:58] <cmn32480> there was some discussion of it in the other channel between NC and tak yon
[12:48:13] <Bytram> coffee++
[12:48:13] <Bender> karma - coffee: 73
[12:48:23] <Bytram> I plead undecaffienation
[12:50:27] <cmn32480> I'd plead too much backscroll to wade through
[12:51:10] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:51:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> i plead the 21st amendment
[12:51:21] <Bytram> also, in and of itself still appears too too too much
[12:52:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> pshaw, it's an ncommander novel. that's downright necessary.
[12:52:33] <cmn32480> drunk is not an excuse Buzzard
[12:53:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, the hell you say
[13:11:04] <Bytram> Fnord666: I've got extensive modifications pending on the Gentoo story.
[13:12:26] * Bytram clicks update
[13:32:27] <Bytram> hmmm, I've read this story before, but can't remember if it was here or on Ars Technica: Will the MOAB (Mother of All Adblockers) Finally Kill Advertising? ( https://soylentnews.org )

[14:28:34] <Bytram> pushed out a few stories to get us through the day... need to take a break and take care of some things. don't know if I'll be back today.
[14:28:36] <Bytram> laters!
[14:29:34] <Bytram> oh, and it would be good for someone to take one more pass through NC's Gentoo story.
[14:29:53] <Bytram> (started to look like word soup as I was finishing a pass through it)
[14:57:21] <mrpg> Gentoo, got you.
[15:02:02] <mrpg> good grammar till now, needs more systemd bashing.
[15:14:26] <mrpg> Nice reading, sorry about freebsd, welcome gentoo.
