[01:44:23] <nick> i'd say yes and no
[01:45:07] <nick> i'd say it's more 'news
[01:45:11] <nick> and 'business'
[01:45:13] <nick> than straight politics
[01:50:44] <takyon> right

[11:18:49] <CoolHand> thanks everyone for the congrats... I think I'll have to have a party for myself tonight.. :D
[11:25:18] <Bytram> CoolHand: You earned it! Is nice to give credit where credit is due!
[11:25:21] <Bytram> whereto? https://l.instagram.com
[11:42:52] * Bytram just swapped release times for 'Google/Waymo Self-Driving Minivan...' and 'Acting FBI Director Contradicts White House...'
[11:43:11] <Bytram> should provide for more discussion
[11:46:18] <Bytram> btw, I heard back from JR a few days ago...
[11:47:16] <Bytram> he sends his best and appreciates all the good wishes for him and his relatives. Things are still uncertain, but he's holding up as well as can be expected.
[12:03:21] <Bytram> long day at work today and an early one tomorrow... not sure how long before I'll be able to check back in.
[12:04:23] <Bytram> also, with the weekend coming, I've found it helpful in the past to drain the submission queue as much as possible... when there are less than 20 items in the submissions queue, the 'nagger' kicks in on the top of the main page and encourages more submissions =)
[12:25:35] <CoolHand> ?Janrin
[12:26:25] <CoolHand> oops, I was trying to search scrollback to figure out what happened to JR, as I seemed to have missed it
[12:47:51] <cmn32480> coolhand - he's had some family illness issues
[12:48:01] <cmn32480> he personally, as afar as we know, is fine.
[12:54:05] <CoolHand> cmn32480: k, thx... figured it was something like that.. I'll keep him/them in my thoughts
[12:54:29] <cmn32480> I think he can use all the thoughts and prayers he can get

[17:48:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> it ain't critical but it is a limited time offer
[17:50:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> 23H left in the offer at this moment
[17:50:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> well and nine minutes
[17:56:25] <cmn32480> I'll piush it out buzzard
[17:56:56] <cmn32480> unless you REALLY wanna do it
[17:56:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> my fellow bored desk sitting people thank you
[17:58:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> just for that i'm gonna figure out how to make yall able to insert a story in the middle of the queue and have the unreleased latter stories automagically arrange themselves.
[17:58:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> one of these days
[17:58:39] <cmn32480> yeah
[17:58:41] <cmn32480> ok
[17:58:45] <cmn32480> I won't hold my breath
[17:58:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> thas a good idea.
[17:59:37] <cmn32480> it'll go live in 30 min.
[17:59:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> cause me and time math, we are not friends.
[18:00:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> i betcha i could do it in rust easier than in perl. rust has a specific Duration data type that i've found right handy.
