[08:11:58] <n1> i added a bit about brexit to the summary
[08:44:31] <FatPhil> Does https://mobile.twitter.com load for anyone? It's a redirect loop for me
[08:44:55] <FatPhil> (I took "mobile." out, and briefly saw the tweet, and then it redirected to "mobile."...

[11:38:59] <Bytram> whereto? https://mobile.twitter.com
[11:40:52] <Bytram> FatPhil: FWIW, I was able to load the mobile page okay.
[11:42:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> i can't. drops me before it even starts loading.
[11:44:45] <Bytram> what browsers are you using? I'm on Pale Moon
[11:45:13] <FatPhil> Palemoon too
[11:46:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> same
[11:47:03] <Bytram> then again, I've got a bunch of ad blocker stuff running... maybe that's enough, in my particular config, to let the parts needed to get through?
[11:47:34] <FatPhil> adblockplus and noscript here
[11:48:43] <Bytram> Adblock Latitude and uBlock origin for me
[11:48:53] <Bytram> neither is showing anything blocked on the mobilepage.
[11:49:31] <Bytram> oh, and I also have NoScript
[11:49:46] <Bytram> saw basically same page when I loaded: https://twitter.com
[11:49:47] <upstart> ^ 03Bill Gurley on Twitter: "There will be many pages in the history books devoted to @travisk - very few entrepreneurs have had such a lasting impact on the world."
[11:50:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> don't really need adblock latitude or noscript if you have ublock origin
[11:50:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> specially with umatrix thrown in
[11:50:28] <FatPhil> Must have been a transient twitter problem, now it loads for me too
[11:50:40] <Bytram> yays!++
[11:51:23] <FatPhil> I couldn't get ublock to do what I wanted. I still have it on one of my mahcines
[11:51:46] <Bytram> http://www.cnbc.com
[11:54:40] <FatPhil> santa money
[11:55:10] <Bytram> Ethereum crashed from $319 to 10 cents in seconds on one exchange
[11:59:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> pffft, you only lose money if you do foolish shit like play around with margins and sell during a panic
[12:01:03] <Bytram> Ima thinking more like.... if one had noticed the precipitous price drop, invest, say $100, and turn around and make a huge profit in short order.
[12:02:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> zactly. let fools panic if they want. low prices are an opportunity not an emergency.
[12:05:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> looks like good old fashioned market manipulation though. someone sells a huge chunk at $300+ causing the price to drop hard n fast then lets the stop loss orders drive it even further then buys as many coins as they sold and waits for the price to go back up tomorrow or next week.
[12:05:58] <Bytram> os, just do some arbitrage between exchanges
[12:06:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> could yeah
[12:06:19] <Bytram> according to http://www.coindesk.com
[12:06:19] <upstart> ^ 03Ethereum Price - CoinDesk
[12:06:38] <Bytram> current price is: $331.61
[12:07:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'd honestly expect to see the same thing happen on multiple exchanges over the next week too
[12:07:20] <Bytram> and, instead of $0.010, they are reporting the price dropped to $13.00: http://www.coindesk.com

[21:43:31] <n1> hi mrpg
[21:43:46] <mrpg> hi, how are you?
[21:43:54] <n1> thanks for getting some stories in the queue
[21:43:58] <n1> i'm good, i think
[21:44:00] <n1> how about you?
[21:44:29] <mrpg> fine, working on submissions.
[21:44:50] <mrpg> I made pancakes and egg.
[21:46:21] <n1> i am yet to master the art of pancakes
[21:46:33] <n1> theyre apparently easy, but im just impatient
[21:47:55] <mrpg> easy: flour, milk, egg, sugar, salt, and butter.
[21:49:34] <n1> my usual mistake is trying to turn them too soon
[21:50:32] <mrpg> I flip them like in the movies which means someday one will fall to the flour. Sorry, floor.
[21:53:02] <n1> yeah im not brave enough to do that
[21:56:32] <mrpg> this korean hosting story is sad and funny
[22:03:59] <mrpg> How's your Spanish?
[22:04:55] <n1> bad is probably the most fitting description
[22:06:40] <n1> i'm slowly learning, but keep putting off spending enough time on it, focusing on work instead
[22:07:12] <n1> but at least i've gone from non-existent to bad... some kind of improvement
[22:08:53] <mrpg> Good. NHK World has free online Japanese classes, I wonder is there are online Spanish classes like that. Say from Spain, I don't know.

[22:09:45] <upstart> ^ 03Oh, how hard it is to speak Spanish! - YouTube
[22:11:02] <mrpg> Spot on :-)
[22:12:10] <n1> i have a friend here who helps me, i understand more and more listening and reading
[22:13:00] <n1> but speaking and writing myself, not so much.... if i'm out and about, trying to get things done i try to phrase my questions to get yes or no answers... but apparently spanish doesn't work that way
[22:13:12] <n1> you ask what you think is a yes/no question, and you get a 5 minute response
[22:13:45] <mrpg> hahaha. some people like to talk to strangers.
[22:14:44] <n1> i think my britishness gets in the way too, i really hate to be an inconvenience, so feel bad if i inconvenience someone with my language skills
[22:15:19] <n1> but that shouldn't be an issue here it seems, no one is really in a rush and everyone else seems to hang around talking about nothing
[22:15:42] <mrpg> I heard Panamá is like that too.
[22:15:56] <mrpg> Clerks take their time to do stuff.
[22:17:21] <n1> it's taking time to unlearn the london way of thinking... every second/minute wasted is £/$ wasted, everyones stressing and rushing to be the next place, being somewhere at 10.05 when you were supposed to be there at 10 is inconsiderate and you're late to an appointment
[22:18:47] <mrpg> right
[22:18:53] <n1> i think the owner of the house im at is surprised i pay my rent early...
[22:22:50] <n1> although in a couple months ill be going to the US again, and have to deal with all the super polite customer service there
[22:23:07] <n1> i don't think i can ever get used to being told to 'have a great day'
[22:26:40] <mrpg> :) I was talking to a girl from a university here years ago (in some college fair) I felt her politeness a little fake.
[22:27:10] <mrpg> I was asking questions (and practicing English) hehe
[22:33:18] <mrpg> bye see you later, 'have a great day' hehe
