[02:50:44] <Bytram> okay, 2nded whatever stories I could and then put another 12 stories on the board...
[02:51:09] <Bytram> FatPhil: many MANY THANKS for stepping in and making sure the story queue did not run dry!
[02:51:23] <Bytram> and, is time for me to call it quits for the evening.
[07:30:32] -!- exec has quit [Ping timeout: 276 seconds]
[09:52:03] <FatPhil> And now I will attempt to ride the robo-bus! I live 200m from one end of the route, and work 200m from the other end of the route.

[09:52:42] <upstart> ^ 03'No Major Incidents' As Driverless Buses Launch in Estonia: SoylentNews Submission
[10:04:57] <FatPhil> I think I'll edit that story whilst riding the bus...
[10:05:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> you should do up a first-hand account and add it at the end.
[10:07:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> unless they have skynet controlling the busses.
[11:36:11] <FatPhil> I can create a little write-up on my webpage, with some piccies
[11:37:12] <FatPhil> unfortunately shitty pics, as I only had my 100% manual fish-eye with me, not my ordinary everyday auto-everything lens :/
[12:18:26] <Bytram> FatPhil: thanks again for stepping up to keep the stories running! and... would be *great* to have a first-hand account of the Estonia bus story!!
[12:18:30] <Bytram> hmmm,
[12:18:44] <Bytram> this looks like spam in our story submission queue: https://soylentnews.org

[13:06:19] <FatPhil> photo of me editing the SN story on the bus didn't come out because contrast was too high between inside the bus and out :(
[13:09:40] <FatPhil> My Roomba got jealous and just decided to unplug everything electronic in its path.
[13:09:57] <FatPhil> justice was swift, it choked on a plug
[13:56:25] <FatPhil> I sux at HTML
[13:57:04] <Bytram> FatPhil: LOL! Appreciate the candor and the humorous take on things!
[13:57:57] <Bytram> are you updating the Estonia story or writing something up for your journal?
[13:58:20] <FatPhil> Updating the story ... previewing now...
[13:58:31] <FatPhil> will contain link to my webpage with annotated photos
[13:58:47] <Bytram> also, wrt your photo, I don't know how far off the bright/dark balance is, but ISTR using some program that came with a digital camera of mine back in the dayt that could do auto balance, etc.
[13:59:02] <Bytram> nodnod
[13:59:42] <FatPhil> In theory, auto-ISO should have pulled things to a sane level, but in a dark cab with bright sunlight outside, it didn't know what it was doing.
[14:00:41] <Bytram> I'm a real noobie when it comes to camera stuff... understand the general concepts well enough that I can make more mistakes than most folk
[14:01:35] <FatPhil> I so rarely bring out the fish-eye, it's only for a couple of events, where I have hours to take time and set everything up and prepare for things.
[14:01:42] <FatPhil> That busride was a total panic!
[14:01:59] <Bytram> did you have your towel?
[14:02:04] <Bytram> Don't panic!
[14:07:40] <FatPhil> saved into the story queue
[14:07:45] <Bytram> nodnod
[14:07:52] <Bytram> am already looking at your page...
[14:08:17] <Bytram> seems to get held up trying to load: GET /images/hacker.png
[14:08:22] <Bytram> but I could be mistaken on that one

[14:16:22] <FatPhil> Ah, you're assuming I'll answer *absolutely* anything!?!?
[14:16:42] <FatPhil> Be careful what you ask!
[14:18:37] <Bytram> that's what AMA means... I added the qualifier for your 9and our) protection!
[14:19:25] <Bytram> btw, can your site handle a bunch of us SNs hitting all at once? Would hate to 'soyl' your site!
[14:20:42] <Bytram> to my untrained eye, the photos look fine, but I am having trouble getting this one to load: http://fatphil.org
[14:23:45] <FatPhil> server's 12 years old, uplink speed is slow too.
[14:25:10] <Bytram> hmmm
[14:25:31] <FatPhil> you're not in my error logs
[14:26:52] <Bytram> okaaay
[14:27:15] <FatPhil> woh, what's weird is that the number of bytes transmitted does seem to massively vary
[14:27:39] <Bytram> I'm gonna hit Crt+F5 to reload the page...
[14:27:46] <Bytram> ready....
[14:27:49] <Bytram> begin
[14:28:00] <FatPhil> tail -f active
[14:28:42] <FatPhil> nothing untoward seen
[14:28:43] <Bytram> still waiting on 2404, 2405, and 2419
[14:29:08] <FatPhil> those requests haven't been seen in the logs...
[14:29:23] <FatPhil> maybe I need more threads... but you should
[14:29:36] <Bytram> that might explain why I am not seeing them on the page.. possible HTML issue
[14:29:38] <Bytram> ?
[14:29:39] <FatPhil> be dealt with when ready anyway
[14:31:30] <FatPhil> Just tried on another home machine (server's in the office), and everything worked
[14:31:55] <FatPhil> home and office are different ISPs too, so real internet was involved.
[14:32:00] * Bytram just looked at the links and they are consistent.
[14:32:26] <FatPhil> I really ought to migrate to nginx...
[14:34:31] <Bytram> gave up on browser, am now trying wget to pull it down... is very slow for me
[14:35:19] <Bytram> wget --mirror --convert-links --progress=dot:binary --backup-converted --html-extension --tries=10 --timeout=20 --no-check-certificate --user-agent=%wget_ua% -o %get_site_log% %get_site_URL%

[14:36:15] * Bytram should really update that
[14:36:43] <Bytram> and the get_site_URL=http://fatphil.org/tallinn/robobus/
[14:37:43] <Bytram> heh, I'm grabbing not only what gets displayed, but also the linked-to images. :/
[14:38:13] <FatPhil> 18mpx each!
[14:39:20] <Bytram> I'm just started d/l of img_2403.jpg
[14:39:39] <Bytram> look to be 2.5-3ish MB each
[14:40:15] <Bytram> I'm getting about 20kB/sec
[14:40:43] <FatPhil> maybe you're fighting my g/f's torrent peers
[14:40:58] <Bytram> Can't tell from here
[14:41:00] <FatPhil> it's only 1MB up
[14:41:08] <Bytram> ahhh, yep, that might do it.
[14:41:51] <Bytram> at best, I've see about 700 kB/sec down
[14:42:07] <Bytram> 2403 done, now on to 2404
[14:42:40] <Bytram> hey... now I am up to 36-45 KB/sec
[14:43:18] <FatPhil> ou've got 2/3rds of my upstream
[14:43:25] <FatPhil> asdf.ee => 54698D1E.cm-12-2c.dynamic.zi 656Kb 649Kb 618Kb
[14:43:36] <FatPhil> presuming that's you
[14:44:13] <Bytram> 2404... was only 49474 bytes... mixup between thumbnail and real image file names and contents?

[14:45:27] * Bytram notes it is prolly best to not post I.P. addiess on the net
[14:46:24] <FatPhil> I have a list of everybody in the world's IP addresses. They're just not indexed
[14:46:35] <Bytram> /me chuckles

[14:47:33] <Bytram> biab
[14:47:34] <Bytram> afk
[14:51:54] <FatPhil> what I've learnt today is that GET /wp-login.php is probably the start of an exploit...
[14:56:42] <Bytram> I hve no idea, but it sure does not sound too good to me
[14:56:54] <Bytram> am up to img_2420

[18:36:41] <mrpg> 10 print "hi"
[18:38:05] <mrpg> The story about the rationing in the UK is interesting but from 2016, what happened with that, did they did it or not?
[18:45:40] <mrpg> Fnord666 [soylentnews.org] and Phoenix666 [soylentnews.org] both submitted stories on NSA coordination with the GCSB in New Zealand:
[18:45:47] <mrpg> both submitted?
[18:45:52] <mrpg> they are coordinated!
[18:46:05] <mrpg> too much coincidence.
