[05:36:16] <chromas> Wow, sciencedaily sucks. No <title> tags; just some js to get the actual pages
[12:24:19] <Bytram> chromas: yuppers
[12:25:41] <Bytram> Also, whenever we get a sub from there, I make it a point to scroll down past the body text and look for a line like: "_materials_ provided by _institution_" where the _materials_ link exists 95% of the time and contains the exact same text in the SD article -- I always use *THAT* link in a story on our site

[21:15:37] <mrpg> hmm hi.
[21:15:54] <mrpg> this bitcoin story is from 2 months ago....... what should I do.
[21:16:25] <mrpg> March 10
[21:17:00] <mrpg> I'll ignore it. I already accepoted it, but it is not posted.
[21:17:50] <mrpg> oh. it is in the queue, i thought it would be in an intermediate state of existence.
[21:18:50] <nick> i dont see it in the queue
[21:19:08] <nick> until you save it, it doesn't move from the submissions
[21:19:28] <nick> it gives you a preview you where it will be with the release time
[21:19:32] <mrpg> ok. Now I found a link from yesterday.
[21:19:35] <nick> but it's not actually there until you save/update it
[21:19:49] <mrpg> ok, I'll do it then.
[21:20:38] <nick> Bitcoin is currently trading above $1500 though
[21:22:29] <mrpg> hmmm
[21:22:34] <mrpg> still a lot of money
[21:22:51] <mrpg> ok, I'll just pick another story.
[21:23:37] <nick> that story is actually from today about it dropping below $1500
[21:23:48] <nick> but plummet is not really the right word, and it's back above it now anyway
[21:24:02] <nick> i'll delete it as there's not really much to talk about with it
[21:24:12] <nick> volatile crypto currency is volatile
[21:25:16] <mrpg> good
[21:25:30] <mrpg> I'll do the Iceland one
[21:25:45] <nick> sounds like a plan
[21:29:58] <mrpg> Ready. Now the shit one. Sorry, "chit"
[21:32:33] <mrpg> Ready. Now the zinc battery.
[21:43:30] <mrpg> Ready. What about the Qubes one? first time I hear of it.
[21:50:05] <mrpg> better the california court
[22:10:06] <mrpg> Ready.
[23:09:13] <mrpg> 13 stories!!!!!!! I demand a raise of 20%!
[23:09:52] <mrpg> 0 + ( 0.20 * 0 ) = 0 :-(
[23:10:25] <mrpg> I dont do more cause the ones in the queue I dont like.
[23:11:31] <mrpg> Do our readers hate systemd? have we ever made a poll?
[23:11:59] <mrpg> Bender: hi
[23:19:45] <mrpg> Bender: hola
[23:19:49] <mrpg> mrpg: hola
[23:30:29] <mrpg> I have triceps but each is 3 muscles. So it is 6 triceps. /random
