[01:13:29] <Bytram> mrpg: Greetings!
[01:13:55] <mrpg> hi good night
[01:14:20] <Bytram> You say goodbye and I say Hello, hello hello!
[01:14:27] <Bytram> =)
[01:15:45] <mrpg> im listening to music now but not the beatles.
[01:16:03] <Bytram> the odds would suggest that is the more likely situation.
[01:16:15] <mrpg> the queue was empty so i came to say that and to work on some submisions
[01:16:26] <Bytram> much obliged!
[01:16:38] <Bytram> I'm catching up on 2nding stories atm

[01:26:45] <mrpg> WhAT about "Gates urges to abandon generosity, impede migrants from reaching Europe "?
[01:27:27] <Bytram> have not read it yet... give me a minute or two
[01:27:55] <mrpg> ok
[01:28:00] <Bytram> found it.. clicky
[01:30:21] <mrpg> ok
[01:30:30] <Bytram> reading _Bild am Sontag_
[01:31:02] <mrpg> the site is down for me ¿?¿
[01:31:23] <Bytram> am readin_welt.de_
[01:31:24] <Bytram> https://www.welt.de
[01:31:24] <upstart> ^ 03Bill Gates: „Der Druck ist enorm – und er wird wachsen“ - WELT
[01:31:26] <mrpg> came back
[01:32:41] <Bytram> My take on the story is that Gates is NOT so much saying "keep out the immigrants" but more like "help the immigrants where they already are"
[01:33:00] <Bytram> if you only help them after the come to Europe, you're going to be overwhelmed by immigrants.
[01:33:21] <Bytram> If you help their lot while they remain in their home country, and it is sufficient, they will stay there...
[01:33:30] <mrpg> that's right
[01:33:48] <Bytram> and, from my perspective, he's suggesting that in the long run, that would be cheaper AND more productive for those who are struggling
[01:34:02] <Bytram> my German is VERY rusty
[01:35:09] <Bytram> more accurately, my vocabulary is, umm, limited... I can worry out a lot of the meaning from context (viva redundancy and rigorous grammatical structure)
[01:36:06] <Bytram> seems like RT put quite a spin on the story, assuming few, if any, English speakers would note the discrepancy.
[01:36:14] <Bytram> s/quite //
[01:36:44] <mrpg> what could we expect.
[01:36:50] <mrpg> I'm done for today.
[01:37:09] <Bytram> I've not seen such strong leanings before.
[01:37:29] <Bytram> mrpg: FIVE more stories? Many many thanks...
[01:37:40] <Bytram> mrpg: a favor, if I may?
[01:38:00] <Bytram> could you please push out my story so I can make some edits? set t==12:00 UTC

[01:38:13] <upstart> ^ 03Site Status: We Made our First-Half Fundraising Goal, SPAM Lists, Mod Points, and More: SoylentNews Submission
[01:38:25] <mrpg> ok
[01:38:48] <Bytram> heck, I can take care of the scheduling too... is just protocol that, unless absolutely necessary, we do not push out out own stories.
[01:38:52] <Bytram> many thanks!
[01:41:08] <Bytram> back shortly... (need to prepare some dinner)
[01:41:10] <Bytram> afk
[01:41:28] <mrpg> Ready, check the time.
[01:42:46] <mrpg> I remeber hormel foods wanted SPAM to be used to mean their food and Spam for email. I dont know if they still ask for that.
[01:42:59] <mrpg> Talk to you later, bye.
