[06:53:31] -!- Sirfinku_ [Sirfinku_!~SirFinkus@a-75-623-671-658.hsd7.wa.comcast.net] has joined #editorial
[06:53:51] <cmn32480> I is!

[06:54:05] <cmn32480> ~gday Sirfinku_
[06:54:07] * exec whole-heartedly uninstalls a slice of eyeball jelly from Sirfinku_
[06:54:32] <Sirfinku_> lo
[06:54:34] <chromas> Californi, eh? Mighty wicked place
[06:55:01] <cmn32480> yep
[06:55:18] <cmn32480> trying to keep my princip;es about me
[06:55:47] <chromas> Tilt-a-Whirl's okay. But the rest is mighty wicked
[06:55:51] <cmn32480> Sirfinku_ - you played it quite well, good sir
[06:56:01] <Sirfinku_> ?
[06:56:09] <cmn32480> your resignation
[06:56:15] <Sirfinku_> oh, that old thing
[06:56:29] <cmn32480> yes
[06:56:48] <cmn32480> I been a ravelin' on busines and not been on IRC for some time
[06:56:59] <Sirfinku_> yeah, just wanted to make sure I didn't have lingering permissions or anything, since I cleaned up a lot of that mess during my tenure
[06:57:07] <Sirfinku_> or at least shined a light on it
[06:58:20] <cmn32480> while I am sad to see you go, I am happy that you did it the right way
[06:58:48] <Sirfinku_> my backup plan was posting pictures of distended assholes on the wiki
[06:59:04] <cmn32480> but I do hope that you will still contribute to the site in some fashion
[06:59:24] <Sirfinku_> but nobody goes to the wiki anyway, so it probably would have gone unnoticed for months
[06:59:26] <cmn32480> so you were gonna go the Subsen tient route?
[06:59:36] <cmn32480> likely
[07:01:47] <cmn32480> regardless, you did it the right way, and for that you should take pride
[07:02:25] <Sirfinku_> headline: Sirfinkus's Resignation Receives Universal Acclaim
[07:02:56] <cmn32480> Don't fuck with the drunken Senior Editor... that can be arranged.
[07:03:10] <Sirfinku_> naw, don't do that
[07:03:38] <Sirfinku_> I don't want to see all the "Who?" replies
[07:03:44] <cmn32480> touce
[07:03:49] <cmn32480> touche
[07:04:02] <Sirfinku_> *touché
[07:04:19] <cmn32480> yeah
[07:04:21] <cmn32480> whatever
[07:04:32] <cmn32480> said I was a drunken editor
[07:04:56] <Sirfinku_> well, the drunken part is implied
[07:05:09] <Sirfinku_> pointing it out is just redundant
[07:05:45] <Sirfinku_> working on drunken ordinary luser right now
[07:06:00] <Sirfinku_> I'm really good at my job
[07:06:02] <cmn32480> given that I is travelin' on business... of COURSE it is
[07:06:36] <Sirfinku_> and I'm apparently in the music industry now, go figure
[07:07:07] <cmn32480> WOOT!
[07:07:10] <cmn32480> how'd that happen?
[07:07:18] <Sirfinku_> fuck if I know
[07:07:28] <Sirfinku_> started running sound for a band
[07:07:31] <Sirfinku_> suddenly I have a network
[07:07:36] <cmn32480> nice
[07:07:43] <cmn32480> congrats I think
[07:07:48] <Sirfinku_> running sound in clubs and at events and shit
[07:08:02] <Sirfinku_> even got to run it on the radio
[07:08:13] <Sirfinku_> bit of a mind fuck
[07:09:28] <cmn32480> NICE!
[07:09:38] <cmn32480> I'm happy for you
[07:09:50] <cmn32480> providing that it is what you wanna do
[07:11:05] <Sirfinku_> pretty baller so far, money isn't great, but I eat and drink for free on the weekends, never pay a cover charge, and get looked at funny if I don't drink and smoke on the job
[07:11:52] <cmn32480> that's a buncha pluses.... now if you can starve the rest of the week....
[07:12:18] <Sirfinku_> I'd categorize my money as "enough", just not glamorous
[07:12:31] <chromas> pocket some wings and stuff before you go
[07:12:48] <Sirfinku_> naw, wings get the board all shitty
[07:13:41] <cmn32480> bring a ziplock... and make sure it don't come out of your pay
[07:14:51] <Sirfinku_> usually not an issue, I almost always get a bit of bar tab
[07:15:08] <cmn32480> feel like sharing?
[07:15:34] <Sirfinku_> nope, I might be able to get you in for free though
[07:15:48] <Sirfinku_> this weekend is a charity gig though, so that'd be a little dickish
[07:15:53] <cmn32480> that might work
[07:16:04] <Sirfinku_> I think it's sold out anyway
[07:16:18] <cmn32480> is ok
[07:16:25] <cmn32480> I won't be in yhour neighborhood
[07:16:54] <cmn32480> shite..... given the time.. I really ought to get to bed
[07:18:11] <Sirfinku_> night
[07:19:14] <cmn32480> night
[12:59:14] <Bytram> ~tell cmn32480 sorry I missed ya last night -- hope your trip goes well! What city are you in?
[13:00:59] <Bytram> SirFinkus: Sirfinku_: Hey! Good to hear about the gig running sound! I was fortunate to do some of that while in college... had lots of fun and learned a LOT! If you don't mind my asking... is it all at the same club? do you travel with a band?
[13:03:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> ~tell cmn32480 ( o Y o )

[14:24:16] -!- mode/#editorial [+v janrinok] by Hephaestus
[14:24:33] <janrinok> TheMightyBuzzard, are you on?
[14:24:38] <Bytram> janrinok: !!
[14:24:47] <janrinok> Bytram, hi - how's things?
[14:24:58] <Bytram> good, thanks. You?
[14:25:02] <janrinok> ps - if anyone asks you haven't seen me on here...
[14:25:15] * Bytram has the late shift tonight and the early shift tomorrow and then... vacation
[14:25:16] <janrinok> I'm good, but very quiet
[14:25:18] <Bytram> seen who?
[14:25:21] <Bytram> lol
[14:25:31] <Bytram> if anyone asks, i haven't heard a thing!
[14:25:34] <Bytram> ;)
[14:25:41] <janrinok> a quick question - is dev up to date - I cannot seem to get it to work like the main site
[14:25:57] <Bytram> excellent question... I don't know.
[14:26:02] <Bytram> I would tend to think it is not.
[14:26:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm? it "should be".
[14:26:49] * Bytram slides this in for future reference: "Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz."
[14:27:01] <Bytram> when is the last time it was rebuilt/reloaded?
[14:27:09] <janrinok> well, I cannot get it to add a nexus when starting a story from 'NEW', and now that I have a story I cannot find how to add a comment to it
[14:27:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> i can make it so pretty quickly if you like
[14:27:15] <Bytram> janrinok: what seems to be the issue?
[14:27:21] <janrinok> Bytram, ^
[14:27:29] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:27:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> api or standard interface?
[14:28:02] <janrinok> I can see my story and even read the TFS, but I cannot see how to start adding comments....
[14:28:13] <Bytram> hmm
[14:28:34] * Bytram looks
[14:28:48] <janrinok> comments are enabled - but there is no field inviting the first comment as I would expect to see on the main site
[14:29:11] <janrinok> perhaps my brain has died...
[14:29:18] <Bytram> is it okay for me to try to post comments to the story?
[14:29:21] <janrinok> yep
[14:29:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> i already did
[14:29:56] <Bytram> I was able top post a comment... looks like TMB could, too
[14:30:01] <Bytram> s/top/to/
[14:30:03] <exec> <Bytram> I was able to post a comment... looks like TMB could, too
[14:30:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> Reply to Article button
[14:30:08] <Bytram> zactly
[14:30:45] <janrinok> I haven't got the banner showing me thresholds, breakthrough and the options to reply to the article
[14:30:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> ?!
[14:30:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> thas screwed up
[14:31:08] <Bytram> umm, "Reply to Article" is in the area just below the story text... at the bottom of the page, the button text is just: "Reply"
[14:31:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> hang on a sec
[14:31:32] <Bytram> ^^^ what he said
[14:31:37] <janrinok> Bytram, I know it _should_ be there - but it ain't
[14:31:50] <Bytram> what browser are you using?
[14:32:01] <janrinok> pale moon
[14:32:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> janrinok, check now
[14:32:11] <janrinok> nor is the comment count increasing
[14:32:12] * Bytram uses PM, too.
[14:32:27] <Bytram> you won't see the comment count increase immediately on the main page, IIRC
[14:32:29] <janrinok> yep!
[14:32:35] <janrinok> TheMightyBuzzard, what did you do?
[14:32:37] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok!
[14:32:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, the comment count thing is a slashd job. it only runs every so often IF slashd hasn't crashed which it does sometimes on dev.
[14:32:41] * exec cohesively extracts a spool of moustache wax from janrinok!
[14:32:47] <janrinok> cmn32480, hi and greetings
[14:32:53] <Bytram> cmn32480: !!
[14:32:54] <cmn32480> I'm just poking jky head in as I am late getting to a custoemr site
[14:32:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> manually set your comment reading mode to a valid one. it was set invalid for some reason.
[14:33:13] <cmn32480> good to see you all
[14:33:18] <janrinok> ah, nothing I could have done then :)
[14:33:22] <cmn32480> except the buzzard... he's a fucktard
[14:33:22] <Bytram> ahhh.. prolly wasn't one of the new threded-TNG or threaded-TOS?
[14:33:25] <janrinok> brb
[14:33:27] <Bytram> k
[14:33:31] <Bytram> cmn32480: you in cali?
[14:33:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> sure it was, i did it from your preferences page =P
[14:33:35] <cmn32480> yeah
[14:33:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, guilty
[14:33:58] <Bytram> is what I'd have done... the question is why was it not automagically converted over like we did on prod?
[14:34:04] <Bytram> cmn32480: what city?
[14:34:16] <cmn32480> Ontario... east of LA
[14:34:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, cause we wrote the sql statements to mirror what we did on dev and apparently we didn't do everything that should have been done.
[14:34:51] <Bytram> nod nod -- never made it thereabouts... been to San Jose and San Diego and San Francisco (for a day)
[14:34:59] <Bytram> k
[14:35:05] <cmn32480> I am thankfully leaving today
[14:35:13] <Bytram> cmn32480: have a safe trip
[14:35:27] * cmn32480 needs to go look to see what other flights are availabel to see if getting out earlier is possible
[14:35:32] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: anyone else have wrong default for the mode
[14:35:36] <janrinok> ok, back now. I try to creep on here to ask a quick question and the whole world sees me! My doc will go bananas!
[14:35:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> prolly
[14:35:53] <cmn32480> hilariously... I head from here to the Ontario in Canada
[14:35:54] <Bytram> janrinok: is your doc a chimp?
[14:36:00] <Bytram> lol
[14:36:11] <janrinok> no, _she_ is quite nice in all other respects
[14:36:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> mmmm.... nanners
[14:36:12] <cmn32480> but we are pestering you with LOVE!
[14:36:23] <janrinok> and it is much appreciated
[14:36:47] <janrinok> not that you can tell, but I can barely talk at the moment. Having operations on my larynx
[14:37:04] <Bytram> wasn't that a character from Dr. Seuss?
[14:37:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> yack
[14:37:08] <cmn32480> I thought your typoing looked clearer than usual
[14:37:14] <Bytram> ROFL!
[14:37:33] <Bytram> from the king of typoing, that is quite the complement
[14:37:34] <janrinok> good to see that the standard of wit hasn't increased by much
[14:37:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh well, you'll probably get ice cream after, so there's that at least.
[14:37:51] <Bytram> is easy for you YOU to say... oh, wait. =)
[14:37:54] <janrinok> brb again - another person at the door!

[14:38:46] <cmn32480> janrinok - take care. Tell S I miss her. Not you so much, but certainly her.
[14:39:08] <Bytram> cmn32480: so good to 'see' ya... hang in there buddy!
[14:39:36] <cmn32480> can I sit on the insdie of the plane instead of hanging on? woudl that be OK for ONE FREAKING TRIP????
[14:40:01] <Bytram> Ok, I mean this as a friend, but put away the LSD, k?
[14:40:18] <cmn32480> lol

[14:40:55] <Bender> karma - nicotine: 6
[14:40:59] * cmn32480 waves back and makes stage left for the exit
[14:41:04] <Bytram> cmn32480: laters!
[14:41:25] <janrinok> cmn32480, thanks for the thoughts and best wishes to S. Sophie's beautician has just arrive - and she is a cracker so I don't mind answering the door to her"!
[14:42:03] <Bytram> putting on the ritz?
[14:42:36] <janrinok> unfortunately, she bats for the other team, but she still looks like a model ...
[14:43:09] <Bytram> funny you should say that.. saw 'Atomic Blonde' yesterday.
[14:43:21] <janrinok> brb - another visitor!
[14:43:26] <Bytram> ciao for now
[14:52:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> janrinok, i'll try and find time to get the api working on dev again this weekend or next week so's you can at least test against it.
[14:54:11] * Bytram didn't know the api wasn't working. :(
[14:55:09] <janrinok> TheMightyBuzzard, thanks but don't bust a gut on it. I've got lots that I can do without that particular function not working
[14:55:43] <janrinok> *without that particular function working,- you know what I mean
[14:56:38] <janrinok> the last visitor was the nurse, so the beautician took a pause for 10 minutes and S is now having a facial while lying in bed.
[14:57:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> well i'm gonna anyway. it annoys me that i broke it without realizing it.
[14:59:06] <janrinok> how did you break it?
[15:01:31] <Bytram> how is it broken? I just tried something and take a look: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[15:01:32] <upstart> ^ 03Dev.SN Comments | A new story just for testing my API dev ( https://dev.soylentnews.org )
[15:01:43] * TheMightyBuzzard has not a clue
[15:01:45] <Bytram> IOW, still works for me... at least in poisting a comment
[15:02:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, m=story functions seem busted
[15:02:39] <Bytram> nod nod
[15:02:46] * Bytram goes to take a look
[15:04:04] <janrinok> Bytram, got to go before I get caught on here. Give my best to the team. Might pop up here from time to time... :) Take care, bud.
[15:04:43] <Bytram> janrinok: understood... so glad to actually hook up! have a great day and give my best to S and FIL, and {{{ JR }}} take care of yourself, too!
[15:05:23] <janrinok> you too!
[15:05:36] -!- janrinok has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[15:09:16] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: I dunno about m=story being borked... I just used the api to successfully retrieve: "https://dev.soylentnews.org/api.pl?m=story&op=single&sid=17/08/11/1418215"
[15:10:02] <Bytram> time for me to get ready for work... got the late shift tonight, and the early one tomorrow.
[19:57:59] <Sirfinku_> Bytram: both
