[02:20:15] <Bytram> would appreciate it if someone would take a look at this story to see if we really should run it? I have my doubts. --Bytram https://soylentnews.org
[02:20:16] <upstart> ^ 03Error ( https://soylentnews.org )
[02:32:07] <mrpg> ok
[02:33:12] <mrpg> meanwhile, check this, it seems a dupe of the previous one in the queue https://soylentnews.org
[02:33:13] <upstart> ^ 03Error
[02:38:43] <Bytram> clicky
[02:40:24] <mrpg> well about your story, I dont know, is "the nation" a good source?
[02:40:57] <Bytram> I don't know. Reading this particular story, I can't help but notice a strong /slant/ to the story.
[02:41:11] <mrpg> when in doubt, say no.
[02:41:35] <Bytram> I'm running on 4.5 hrs sleep last night, worked both yesterday and today, and am not very alert atm... sorry.
[02:41:41] <Bytram> oh.
[02:41:43] <Bytram> no.
[02:41:45] <Bytram> =)
[02:42:10] <Bytram> I *skimmed* the entire article in 'The Nation' and it references its sources...
[02:42:46] <Bytram> don't recall the link, but if we run the story, we should include that, too. Members of that group include former NSA bigwig Binney.
[02:43:13] <Bytram> names don't get much bigger than that -- he was *strrongly* against the NSA expanding its powers of data collection.
[02:43:36] <Bytram> checking *your* link, which story did you think it was a dupe of?
[02:44:07] <mrpg> the one you are talking in the mation, it's more of the same.
[02:44:14] <mrpg> so it's almost a dupe.
[02:44:21] <mrpg> the Nation
[02:45:09] <Bytram> oh. No, I do not think it's a dupe at all.
[02:46:16] <Bytram> Your URL is to a story that claims that the same group that hacked the DNC (topic The Nation article) is responsible for ALSO hacking hotel WiFi networks.
[02:46:38] <Bytram> but, if the story from 'The Nation' is suspect, the so is the one you linked to.
[02:46:42] <Bytram> round and round and round
[02:46:52] <mrpg> hm
[02:47:46] <mrpg> well if you are unsure then put them on no display and check them tomorrow. if you like them show them, if in doubt then no.
[02:48:50] <Bytram> okay, only one submission is queued up atm.
[02:49:06] <Bytram> will flag it as NOT display
[02:49:21] <mrpg> perfect
[02:49:28] <mrpg> better safe than sorry
[02:50:23] <Bytram> this story was flagged NOT display until we get another editor to say we SHOULD run it. Just in case. --Bytram https://soylentnews.org

[02:50:45] <Bytram> ^^^ title is "A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack"
[02:51:48] <mrpg> good
[02:52:25] <mrpg> well done, see you later, bye.

[15:27:56] <mrpg> hi
[15:57:29] <mrpg> I just did "The Implications of Cosmic Silence", cool story.
[16:43:17] <Bytram> hi!
[16:44:09] <Bytram> Was away from the kbd for a bit... glad you liked it! For those who might not have been famiiar, when I 2nded it, I added links to 'Fermi's paradox' and the 'Drake equation' which underlie the whole story
[16:47:07] <Bytram> #submit http://www.bidmc.org "Full pdf article is paywalled ( http://www.atsjournals.org ) but an abstract is available ( http://www.atsjournals.org )"
[16:47:08] <MrPlow> Unable to find a title for that page
[16:47:18] <Bytram> blerg
[16:49:21] <Bytram> ~submit http://www.bidmc.org
[16:49:56] <exec> submission successful - https://soylentnews.org
[16:50:12] <Bytram> yays!
[16:50:28] <mrpg> i use firefox with ublock origin, noscript and videodownloadhelper, and you?
[16:51:24] <Bytram> Pale Moon (on windows) with a whole boat load of addins / helpers / whateveryoucallem
[16:52:47] <Bytram> btw, atm we have 23 stories in the submissions queue, several of which I have no interest in running... do you see any that you would suggest we delete so as to clean up the queue?
[16:53:13] <Bytram> I'd say anything from July should go.
[16:57:55] <Bytram> done
[16:57:58] <Bytram> break time
[17:00:11] <mrpg> maybe the iceberg one, and the limited nuclear war one
[17:01:01] <mrpg> the cam girls look good by the psychological manipulation of the clients from the girls.
[17:02:36] <mrpg> i'll do the opioids one
[17:03:30] <Bytram> ok will nuke icebergs * nukes =)
[17:03:40] <Bytram> s/\*/\&/
[17:03:42] <exec> <Bytram> ok will nuke icebergs & nukes =)
[17:03:48] <Bytram> !woop
[17:03:48] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[17:03:56] * Bytram is surprised that worked
[17:03:59] <mrpg> hehe
[17:04:20] <Bytram> regular expressions are not so regular depending on which tool you are using :/
[17:04:27] <mrpg> so if I had to jump ship I can go to pale moon. Ok. But my extensions are likely to work in the new firefox. I should try palemoon just in case.
[17:04:56] <Bytram> I've been using PM for long time now... /me goes to look
[17:05:27] <Bytram> since july of 2015, at least
[17:05:38] <mrpg> I saw it years ago but I like firefox look.
[17:06:07] <Bytram> that's why i went to PM -- they maintained the look without the latest "shiny" stuff that FF was adding in
[17:06:52] <Bytram> icebergs gone
[17:08:17] <Bytram> with PM I could still adjust the UI to the way I wanted it to look... especially since it retained the ability to have a status bar so I could see the URL when I hovered over a URL -- really handy when editing stories here -- never know what is coming in a submission!
[17:08:46] <Bytram> mrpg: wrt "nukes" -- you mean delete this one? "How Bad Would a Limited Nuclear War Actually Be? "
[17:09:35] <mrpg> yes I meant nuke it :-)
[17:10:03] <Bytram> I read the editor comment before and gave it a pass, but now that I am actaully reading the submission, it doesn't look that bad.
[17:10:54] <Bytram> now I re-read the comment: "A question that cannot be answered - how may warheads will be fired, where will they land, what are the weather conditions?" -- and again I hesitate to run it.
[17:12:08] <mrpg> that's the problem, if you could narrow it down it could be an interesting thought experiment.
[17:13:07] * Bytram is reading one of the linked articles: https://theconversation.com
[17:20:49] <Bytram> I'm going to give it a try...
[17:21:02] <Bytram> will need to expand the quoted sections to provide more context...
[17:21:20] <Bytram> mrpg: you going to be around for a bit? Would really appreciate a looksee after I'm done.
[17:23:40] <mrpg> sure I'll wait, I'm doing the opiods submission but distracted with mozart on youtube .-)
[17:24:51] <Bytram> good distraction!
[17:24:56] <Bytram> much appreciate it!

[17:27:34] <Bytram> Oy. I very much dislike massive URLs with bunched of imbedded (possible tracking) stuff

[17:29:09] <Bytram> that's better -- at least this is the correct link!
[17:36:09] <mrpg> Stark increase in opioids ready.
[17:36:32] <Bytram> indeed. A friend of mine succumbed to it.
[17:38:46] <mrpg> That's sad. The son of a friend was on drugs, but last I heard he was off of them.
[17:40:31] <Bytram> as had my friend... had been an addict for many years, struggled but got clean for a couple years, and then got caught up again after getting meds following an operation.
[17:41:09] <Bytram> was hard to watch him struggle, knowing 9and eventually accepting) that there was nothing I can do.
[17:49:07] <mrpg> Indeed
[17:53:24] <Bytram> okay, I'm running into word soup at this point
[17:54:32] <Bytram> I'm debating put it into the politics nexus instead of the main page.
[17:54:37] <Bytram> politics it is.
[17:56:28] <Bytram> okay, saved it is!
[17:57:01] <Bytram> mrpg: when You have a chance, I'd appreciate your taking a fine eye to it: https://soylentnews.org
[17:57:02] <upstart> ^ 03Error ( https://soylentnews.org )
[17:59:50] <Bytram> that was rather draining... am gonna take a break.
[18:35:40] <mrpg> ok
[18:53:29] <mrpg> Watch out for the bracket at the end instead of a parentheses: The DPRK {North Korea)
[18:55:32] <mrpg> It's a lot of text. Good job.

[19:05:21] * Bytram has trouble with one of his sHiFt keys. :/
[19:05:41] <Bytram> and is getting better at typoing!
[19:19:28] <Bytram> time for me to get about my day...
[19:19:34] <Bytram> catch y'all laters!
[19:23:05] <mrpg> bye
[19:35:21] <mrpg> When I visit another site with a text area takyon's script kicks in and I have the buttons on it :-) hehe
[19:36:34] <mrpg> btw I was trying to add a <p>[...] to it, and modified the source code, I modified the <p> but tried to make a new one and I damaged it, so I had to copy it again.
[19:45:19] <takyon> so are you saying the bug was something you caused?
[19:51:00] <mrpg> Yes, I added addPara as adPara2 and it stopped working.
[19:51:40] <mrpg> I was creating another function to add "<p>[...] </p>"
[19:55:20] <mrpg> And when I tried to make another button it stopped working altogether.
[19:56:08] <takyon> not sure how that would be useful
[19:56:20] <takyon> I always type the "[...]" manually
[19:56:37] <takyon> you odn't even need the space as previewing it will cause the space to get added in
[19:56:48] <takyon> code specifically written for OriginalOwner
[19:57:20] <takyon> if it's just inserting "<p>[...] </p>" you can already do that with the macro buttons
[19:58:08] -!- SoyGuest12422 has quit [Ping timeout: 276 seconds]
[20:03:12] <mrpg> yes i tried the macros but I wanted a button, I'm practicing javascript so this was an experiment.

[20:11:36] <takyon> now that I'm thinking aobut it more I guess I could make the button
[20:11:56] <takyon> anyway if you have feature requests plz send them to me
[20:13:19] <mrpg> Sure I will thank you.
[20:14:07] <mrpg> Bye.
