[00:01:04] <takyon> yeah the bug is no mystery... probably could be solved with some greater than and less than signs
[00:02:55] <Bytram> nod nod... but the fact that it actually let two stories get scheduled for the exact same time? Partly, I'm sure, is that there is no mechanism/protocol to notify when there is something wrong with a story (e.g. a dialog box)
[00:03:46] <Bytram> also, who would be clueless enough to do something like *that* ??!?

[02:20:49] <takyon> don't forget that you can actually set the second that a story drops, not just the hours/minutes
[02:21:10] <takyon> this BLU thing is serious, huh?
[02:24:24] <Bytram> takyon: as for seconds, not really... ISTR there is code which handles that which strips the seconds down to whole minutes... some kind of bug that helps to avoid (IIRC)
[02:24:32] <Bytram> as for BLU, yep.
[02:44:46] <Bytram> that's it, I'm wiped.
[02:45:26] <Bytram> I got a few stories pushed out, and submitted some more, but I can't stay awake any longer and have an earlier-than-usual morning tomorrow.
[02:47:32] <Bytram> spaced out stories to 2h 20min or so to help cover the span.
[02:47:46] <Bytram> home someone can chime in and help fill things into the AM.
