[01:14:54] <Fnord666> howdy Bytram!
[01:15:07] <Bytram> Fnord666: !!
[01:15:17] <Fnord666> yes, tis I!
[01:15:25] <Bytram> how ya be?
[01:15:42] <Fnord666> Well, thanks for asking. Yourself?
[01:15:59] <Bytram> good, all in all.
[01:16:10] <Fnord666> That's good to hear.
[01:16:30] <Bytram> didn't get quite enough sleep last night, but had a good day @ work...met with some friends after, and just finshed eating dinner
[01:16:51] <Bytram> am now equivocating about doing dishes.
[01:16:56] <Fnord666> :)
[01:17:09] <Bytram> should prolly do 'em and get it off my mind, eh?
[01:17:31] <Bytram> unless, you'd like to visit... and do 'em for me? ;)
[01:17:43] <Fnord666> As Mom always said - They're not going to do themselves now are they?
[01:17:59] <Bytram> smart mom
[01:17:59] <Fnord666> tempting, but probably a bit of a drive.
[01:18:03] <Bytram> lol
[01:18:36] <Bytram> I forget. I am in the northeastern part of the US... you?
[01:18:49] <Fnord666> Ohio
[01:19:04] <Bytram> yeah, that's a bit of a hike all right!
[01:19:06] <Fnord666> So maybe not too bad of a drive actually
[01:19:26] <Fnord666> You could be in Oregon. That would take a little longer.
[01:19:33] <Bytram> are you in eastern or central time zone?
[01:19:35] <Bytram> yep.
[01:19:53] <Fnord666> Ohio is the western edge of the Eastern Time Zone
[01:20:07] <Bytram> I'm near the other edge
[01:20:54] <Bytram> ok, that does it. is hard to type with a big dinner plate and bowl on the table in front of my kbd... gonna have to break down and do the dishes, I guess.
[01:21:00] <Bytram> afk biab
[01:21:10] <Fnord666> Are you going to post the russian sub story?
[01:21:29] <Fnord666> I saw that we were both looking at it.
[01:21:54] <Bytram> nah, I'm out of it... but
[01:22:17] <Bytram> be aware I saw no pictures -- requires Javascript
[01:22:33] <Bytram> I did a view source, found a link, and worked from that.

[01:25:50] <Fnord666> howdy charon
[01:26:42] <charon_> hiyo fnord. how are ya?
[01:27:04] <Fnord666> Good. Yourself!
[01:27:09] <Fnord666> Yourself?
[01:27:38] <charon_> i am doing fine. pretty average week
[01:27:58] <charon_> please tell me you're not considering the conceptual penis story
[01:28:13] <Fnord666> lol
[01:28:35] <Fnord666> It's awfully tempting...
[01:35:34] <charon_> i am torn. i don't necessarily dislike that fact that butthurt is on a posting spree. it's just that about 80% of it is politics and i want to delete it and tell him to cut that shit out. seriously, if i were in charge, i would delete 17 of the subs currently in the queue
[01:43:12] <Fnord666> there is quite a lot of junk in there right now
[01:46:38] <Fnord666> not sure what to do with it though
[01:50:55] <charon_> if it was AC stuff i would delete it and go on with life. but do i want to delete 17 subs from a single logged in user?
[02:01:58] <charon_> anyway, work time over, heading home. cheers

[02:09:08] <Bytram> Hi! I'm back.
[02:12:50] <Fnord666> Welcome back Bytram
[02:12:55] <Fnord666> ttyl chromas
[02:13:05] <Fnord666> ttyl charon
[02:13:40] <Bytram> we don't want to purge too much from the sub queue as it is a long holiday weekend, but I just deleted the 24-day-old story on tab completion.
[02:14:11] <Bytram> let's push out all of the stories that we can, to reduce queue size and hence encourage submissions.
[02:14:46] <Fnord666> how many politics stories do you want to run?
[02:15:01] <Bytram> we (try to) keep it down to one per day.
[02:15:23] <Bytram> breaking news, for example, may cause us to push out another one after one had run earlier in the day.
[02:16:10] <Bytram> If nothing else, try and get the sub queue below 20 so the nagger kicks in on the main page.

[02:22:38] <MrPlow> #fite restricted to the channel #fite
