[00:03:28] <n1> did someone reject the last Tesla story?
[00:03:33] <n1> about 'autopilot'
[00:14:51] <charon_> i don't recall seeing one recently. i didn't delete it anyway
[00:21:27] <n1> doesn't really matter, was just more free publicity for TSLA, only reason im really wondering is because i wanted to add something to it
[00:22:04] <cmn32480> I think I remember seeing it
[00:22:10] <n1> during his tweets, which the autopilot story was about... he also stated that there will apparently be no more updates on the model 3 until the first deliveries happen.
[00:22:23] <cmn32480> Something about Musk and the new autopilot was smoth as silk right?
[00:22:29] <n1> also noting the first deliveries are going to employees and other 'special' people
[00:22:31] <n1> yeah
[00:23:40] <n1> also i would have included something about the model3 'anti-marketing' strategy... they're trying not to hype it, partly because apparently some customers have been confused thinking the model3 is a model s replacement
[00:24:32] <cmn32480> I only remember seeing the headline
[00:26:20] <n1> yeah, i only skimmed the story and it was just a hype piece as it stood, but i enjoy my tsla reading and am usually amused by something musk says
[00:27:56] <cmn32480> n1 - it goes live at 9:06
[00:28:07] <cmn32480> Fnord666 pushed it to the story queue
[00:28:20] <cmn32480> roughly 40 minutes
[00:28:40] <n1> oh there it is... dont know why i didnt see it before
[00:28:41] <n1> thanks
[00:28:52] <cmn32480> np
[00:29:01] <cmn32480> glad I coudl be of some assistance to somebody today
[00:36:19] <n1> i added a my 2c
[00:36:25] <n1> if anyone wants to take a second look
[00:37:01] <cmn32480> i'll peek at it... my kids keep getting in the way
[00:39:12] <cmn32480> did you forget to save it?
[00:39:16] <cmn32480> nefver mind
[00:39:22] <cmn32480> I go tthe cached version
[00:39:49] <cmn32480> well done
[00:40:39] <charon_> butchered!
[00:40:55] <cmn32480> that adjective only works for gewg_ subs
[00:41:34] <charon_> dare i point out that comma should be a semi-colon?
[00:41:46] <cmn32480> certainly
[00:42:28] <n1> the first one?
[00:42:41] <charon_> yes
[00:43:04] <charon_> could be a period too, but as is it's a comma splice
[00:43:22] <n1> i'll fix it
[00:43:50] <charon_> no one but a grammar nerd would care though
[00:44:24] <charon_> says the guy who never uses capital letters or terminal punctuation
[00:45:29] <n1> as i've said many times in here... i essentially dropped out of school so my written english skills have not been finely tuned through structured education... for the internet taught me to write, which explains a lot.
[00:46:30] <n1> as such, i'm always up for improving and have no problems with being called out on my errors
[00:47:40] <charon_> i think i learned more about english grammar from spanish classes than anything else. trying to construct a sentence with different verb tenses made me think hard about how exactly English did it
[00:51:01] <n1> yeah, i can see how that happens... like when i've been helping people with english here, i'm a lot more casual about it compared to how they are when teaching me some spanish
[00:51:22] <n1> constructing a sentence you can casually understand in english is a lot easier, more flexible
[01:17:45] <cmn32480> speaking of mistakes... did you train charon?
[01:20:37] <charon_> ?
[01:21:33] <cmn32480> he said he didn't mind being called out on his mistakes
[01:22:03] <charon_> i am no mistake. i am awesome
[01:24:15] <cmn32480> if you are gonna own it... own it big

[18:03:22] <janrinok> Hi guys
[18:04:35] <Xyem> Evening janrinok
[18:04:47] <janrinok> Xyem, evening!
[18:05:00] <Xyem> How are you doing today?
[18:05:00] <janrinok> whereabouts are you roughly?
[18:05:06] <Xyem> UK
[18:05:15] <janrinok> Ah, that explains the tz
[18:05:39] <Xyem> Indeed it does.
[18:06:15] <janrinok> Have you joined the ed team, or do you lurk here just for the witty conversation and insightful comments?
[18:06:41] <Xyem> Why not both?
[18:06:46] <Xyem> I'm in training :)
[18:06:56] <janrinok> good for you - what stage?
[18:07:26] * janrinok really should log on to dev and catch up on there as well
[18:08:36] <Xyem> Some stories that have been on the site get their originals copied to dev, then I do the editing and someone checks them, let's me know if I did anything that needed improving etc.
[18:09:01] <Xyem> lets*
[18:09:42] <janrinok> OK, let me know if I can help, I hope to be back up to speed soon and on here daily within a week or two
[18:13:58] <Xyem> Thanks :)

[20:19:19] <n1> as is my reading of this story... he violated probation by being charged with a crime he was later found not guilty of?
