[02:07:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> The rewrite will take out words such as “genius”, brilliance” and “flair,” as they’re deemed “sexist terms,” The Telegraph reports.
[02:08:29] * TheMightyBuzzard facepalms
[02:08:38] <cmn32480> sheesh
[02:10:00] * TheMightyBuzzard does the happy, happy bedtime chair dance
[02:10:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> which is much like musical chairs but with only one chair/player and you never start the music
[02:28:00] <Bytram> okay, finally finished with the JunoCam story... definitely needs some 2nding... started to look like word soup.
[02:28:13] <Bytram> 2nding nokia routers
[02:31:16] <Bytram> 2nding SS reefer rules
[02:31:44] <Bytram> 2nding FF %4
[02:31:48] <Bytram> FF 54
[02:34:03] <Bytram> cmn32480: Just saw something I missed, in the Juno story's title, the word Movie should be in double quotes, to wit: Juno Jupiter Mission - Flyby "Movie"
[02:34:14] <cmn32480> 10-4
[02:35:54] <Bytram> while I gots you here, any reason to keep the first 3 stories in the sub queue? If we've not run them yet, might as well decide now. I say we delete 'em; Alt for systemd; phished docs, and racism on campus
[02:36:10] <cmn32480> gimme sec to loook at them
[02:36:31] <Bytram> np, also, if you see any others we can decide to let go.
[02:36:46] <cmn32480> first 4
[02:36:55] <Bytram> k
[02:37:46] <cmn32480> Katy Perry and Diplo
[02:39:22] <Bytram> oh, question.... does the 'delete reason' get sent to the user, or do we have to separately do an 'admin to user message'?
[02:39:51] <cmn32480> delete reason gets sent to the user
[02:39:57] <cmn32480> always has
[02:40:05] <Bytram> o really? Huh! I didn't know that!
[02:40:23] <cmn32480> least afaik it does
[02:40:24] <Bytram> I thought it was just stored there for us so we knew what the reasoning was.
[02:40:59] <cmn32480> nope doesn't get stored unless you put it in the notes
[02:41:44] <Bytram> oh, I have to copy the delete reason into the Notes?
[02:41:55] <Bytram> too late now. oops!
[02:42:19] <cmn32480> you don't ahve to
[02:42:38] <cmn32480> but if it doesn't get copied inot the notes, it becomes just bits of bytes floating around in the great ether
[02:43:26] <Bytram> I dunno about you, but ether ain't that great -- masive nausea and headaches from what I've heard. ;)
[02:44:59] <Bytram> 3 down, one to go
[02:45:58] <cmn32480> dunno... anytime I get put put I demand the goodstuff
[02:46:59] <cmn32480> editing china telescope
[02:49:36] <Bytram> huh!
[02:50:55] <Bytram> curiously enough, the Juno story is my 3600th... something fitting that it has a connection to "2001: A Space Odyssey" -- one of the earliest SF books I'd bought!
