[00:20:59] <nick> yeah im just about here
[00:21:18] <Bytram> Great!
[00:21:49] <Bytram> here's a linky: https://soylentnews.org(2017-06-28)

[00:23:26] <nick> ok
[00:23:29] <nick> i'll push it through now

[00:26:29] <cmn32480> we broke the mod points today?
[00:26:43] <Bytram> who is this WE you are talking about?
[00:26:47] <Bytram> ;)
[00:27:01] <cmn32480> it's a royal we.... and yo are known for breaking things
[00:28:11] <Bytram> made some minor tweaks, is good to go.
[00:28:17] <Bytram> moi?
[00:28:20] <Bytram> ~blame
[00:28:21] * exec points at Bytram
[00:28:27] <Bytram> =) =) =)
[00:29:02] <Bytram> was kind of a fun puzzle... got to play with the DB on prod for a bit trying to figure out what was going on.
[00:29:20] * cmn32480 waits for the avalanche of issues that bytram caused
[00:29:25] <Bytram> got most of the problem identified and isolated, and with that TMB and PJ got right to it and identified what had happened
[00:29:49] * Bytram only did 2 updates, all the rest were queries
[00:30:01] <Bytram> oh! wait.... that reminds me
[00:33:30] <Bytram> almost forgot to give credit to mrpg who played guinea pig with his account and helped in problem isolation. added his assistance to the story.

[00:42:38] <Bytram> that's better!
[00:42:57] <exec> error: something went wrong with your submission - maybe try again in a minute
[00:43:12] <cmn32480> arthur works correctly if you use the hash on the storybot page of the wiki
[00:43:26] <cmn32480> arthur does NOT accept links
[00:43:35] <chromas> seems like a bug
[00:43:46] <Bytram> I've done it successfully several times in the past few days

[00:44:35] <cmn32480> chromas - arthur has the functionality, but we never built the passthrough for exec
[00:44:44] <chromas> ah
[00:45:08] <mrpg> this puzzled me at first: "A year after failing to acquire [soylentnews.org] Office Depot, Staples is being bought."
[00:45:13] <cmn32480> and, quite frankly, the functionality in arthur for that is rather dubious
[00:46:51] <Bytram> mrpg: looks like a URL lost the domain part and defaulted to our server
[00:47:25] <Bytram> speaking of which -- have not yet had a reply from JR on the email I sent him. :(
[00:47:30] <mrpg> :-( I thought we were going to have a salary and a candy machine :-(
[00:47:55] <cmn32480> they suckered you wiht that story too?
[00:48:48] <cmn32480> anybody know why. when I put up an entry level job posting, I get resume's from people with work histories longer than I have been alive?
[00:49:25] <Bytram> because you are young?
[00:49:41] <cmn32480> I'm not THAT young
[00:49:44] <mrpg> there are no jobs
[00:49:45] <cmn32480> gramps
[00:49:46] <Bytram> or, should I say, we are fortunate tohave sucha prodigy among our ranks!
[00:50:01] <cmn32480> #smake bytram for being a sarcastic bastard
[00:50:01] * MrPlow smakes bytram for being a sarcastic bastard upside the head with a dropbear
[00:50:08] <chromas> Well there are places with nonsense requirements so people probably give nonsense experience
[00:50:19] * Bytram decides to head to the kitchen and see if there is some food he can sic his gums on
[00:50:33] * cmn32480 passes bytram a tube of dentu-cream
[00:50:56] <Bytram> the older I get, the more aware I am of how much older I am
[00:51:24] <chromas> You're not old until the candles start counting down
[00:52:03] <cmn32480> chromas - I thought they just rolled over to all zeros?
[00:52:06] <Bytram> afk brb
[00:52:49] <chromas> Sure back in the day when they optimized but now it's all signed candles
[00:53:03] <chromas> in case of error
[00:53:17] <cmn32480> all of them have UEFI built in nowadays...
[00:53:19] <Bytram> cmn32480: btw, you might want to pop into #fite and take a shot at jasassin -- keep him occupied until the timer clicks and then I can take a shot at him?
[00:53:50] <Bytram> he';s down to 67 points atm
[00:54:06] <cmn32480> he left
[00:54:20] <Bytram> good fairy should come along in about 20 minutes
[00:54:20] <cmn32480> seconds ago
