[01:49:39] <takyon_> how many years has it been since the first avatar movie? feels like james cameron is taking his sweet time
[01:50:02] <Bytram> how many years? Too many!
[01:50:30] <nick> i can only assume long enough so people don't remember that avatar sucked... or at least that's what i recall from the reception
[01:50:32] <takyon_> and given that the first Avatar was like a test run for a "fully 3D" movie, the sequels ought to be VR movies
[01:50:34] <takyon_> I mean come on
[01:51:36] <Bytram> nick: it may well have "sucked", but it was the first, and so far ONLY, movie I've ever seen twice at the cinema
[01:52:50] <nick> i never saw it, only going off what i remember from the coverage around it
[01:52:52] <Bytram> except in two places, there was nearly no messing around with the depth-of-field that I saw.
[01:53:17] <nick> so you enjoyed it? story, technical or both?
[01:53:45] <takyon_> the only VR movie I've seen was Hardcore Henry (2015) and I saw it in 2D
[01:54:37] <Bytram> Story pretty much stayed true to itself, I thoroughly enjoyed feeling immersed in a land where everything was so lush and vibrant (I saw the 3D version, btw)
[01:55:19] <Bytram> takyon: sounds like a visit to Flatland! ;)
[01:55:50] <Bytram> something about 2D and VR reminded my of that story.
[01:55:53] <takyon_> actually I'm not sure that it was VR. but it was first person perspective

[02:53:33] <takyon_> paulej72: I am OK with it. For the full scope of subs, I'd rather see this implemented: https://github.com
[02:53:33] <upstart> ^ 03Feature request: User submissions pages · Issue #333 · SoylentNews/rehash · GitHub
[02:56:55] <paulej72> the fix i did was quick because it only required me to set some vars.

[21:38:11] <paulej72> let me know if you want a different view of the data. This stuff was mostly done, I just added pagination. I could use the view from Info page if you think that would be better.
[21:38:40] <paulej72> Also do we want to remove the subs from the info page?

[23:12:10] <nick> a few weeks ago it was carinval, then it was easter and now tomorrow it's going to be worker's day... so many reasons not to go to work in this country
[23:44:28] <takyon> tomorrow is LOYALTY DAY nick
[23:46:09] <takyon> paulej72: it looks fine. I guess I'm used to the way it is displayed to editor level users with the Title, IPID, Datestamp, State, and Pub Date columns
[23:46:39] <takyon> but having it working at all is great, and clearly the pagination will help loading times
[23:46:50] <takyon> how many to a page? 100? 250?
[23:46:51] <nick> takyon, is it a country or a cult? it's getting harder to discern.
[23:47:17] <takyon> stop thinking and start worshiping, nick
[23:48:23] <takyon> trump!
[23:50:15] <nick> it's getting really hard to keep track of the current government rhetoric/spin coming out of both the UK and the US right now
[23:50:34] <takyon> May!
[23:50:45] <nick> just throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks
[23:51:00] <nick> the current stuff about May's tour for the election has been amusing
[23:51:31] <nick> doing the usual thing of going to businesses to talk to the electorate, but not telling anyone, and only inviting party members
[23:51:38] <Deucalion> nick, when is it ever easy keeping track of the govt spin and how that relates to their actual actions? :D
[23:51:41] <takyon> watching her rise from draconian Home Sec to PM was like watching a train crash in ultra slow mo
[23:51:49] <nick> im still in shock she made it
[23:52:25] <nick> i'm sure there's logs from me in here saying i can't see how she'd get there, being that to me she's been a terrible member of government during her tenure as home secretary
[23:52:34] <Deucalion> the civil mandarins set the agenda anyway...
[23:52:40] <nick> but of course the ol' ways of making sure there's no one else to vote for helps
[23:53:17] <nick> the person who came in second to her, had created her reputation of working in the city, financial services
[23:53:31] <nick> but literally couldn't find one person to vouch for her time in the city, or what she did
[23:54:03] <Deucalion> don;t underestimate the sheer number of people there are that really would like to cede all responsibility for their safety to the govt and welcome all the interception and monitoring stuff with open arms....
[23:54:14] <nick> Deucalion, i'm very tired of that shit... while it's true to a degree... i'm quite sick of the 'well if you watch Yes Minister you'll understand'
[23:54:38] <nick> we've managed to boil our political system down to a few hours of television, that has remained unchanged for decades
[23:54:44] <nick> and makes sure no one is accountable
[23:54:45] <Deucalion> nick, how would you know what degree it is true unto?

[23:55:44] <nick> not everyone who seeks power and influence goes through the publicity campaign, there's various elements of lobbyists, civil servants and unelected officials in other contexts who have major sway
[23:56:17] <nick> the MP's and ministers are the symbols/figureheads, but they have other people talking in their ear about what to say, who never stood for election
[23:56:31] <Deucalion> and do not change when the govt changes :)
[23:57:01] <Deucalion> but yes each govt also brings their own raft of pet advisers who of course all have their own agendas
[23:57:19] <nick> Peter Mandelson <3
[23:57:35] <nick> sorry, the Rt Hon. Lord Mandelson
[23:58:41] <nick> Deucalion, did you see the story today about May's tour in Scotland i think it was? ... people apparently wanted to go and you know, voice their concerns to her wherever she was supposed to be speaking, but somehow the event got listed on the venues website as a 'childrens party'
