[01:29:26] <Fnord666> Bytram - I'll move my uber story
[01:29:35] <Bytram> huh?
[01:30:50] <Bytram> Fnord666: your story is fine... I didn't see it in the queue... my bad!
[01:30:54] <Fnord666> I posted an uber story a few minutes ago
[01:30:54] <Bytram> I'll move mine
[01:31:00] <Bytram> yep, JUST saw it
[01:31:04] <Fnord666> already moved mine
[01:31:05] <Bytram> is fine where it is
[01:31:09] <Bytram> urk
[01:31:11] <Bytram> so sorry!
[01:31:16] <Fnord666> np
[01:31:32] <Fnord666> just saw that the well was almost dry
[01:31:48] <Bytram> likewise
[01:31:54] <Fnord666> I pushed mine out a ways so the uber stories aren't back to back
[01:32:08] <Fnord666> so how are you this eve?
[01:32:20] <Bytram> takyon put yet another uber story in the sub queue, too. beware
[01:33:13] <Bytram> typoing like crazy@!
[01:33:22] <Bytram> just got home from a gathering with some friends
[01:33:32] <Bytram> in spirits, and no, not THAT kind!
[01:33:40] <Bytram> you?
[01:33:44] <Fnord666> that's cool
[01:33:52] <Fnord666> doing good this eve.
[01:33:55] <Bytram> OxyXontin
[01:34:29] <Fnord666> just getting ready to watch "King Arthur" after I do a little bit here.
[01:35:03] <Bytram> is that recent?
[01:35:26] <Fnord666> FAirly. just hit dvd today
[01:35:33] <Bytram> that owuld be recent
[01:35:42] <Bytram> seems that basic story has been done over so many times
[01:35:55] <Bytram> then again, it IS a classic!
[01:35:57] <Fnord666> Has Charlie Hunnam as Arthur. He played the lead in Pacific Rim
[01:36:13] <Bytram> not familiar with that one
[01:36:15] <Fnord666> and Jax in the Sons of Anarchy TV series
[01:37:02] <Fnord666> http://www.imdb.com
[01:37:03] <upstart> ^ 03Pacific Rim (2013) - IMDb
[01:37:04] <Bytram> too busy with work & this site & civic stuff... don't watch TV
[01:37:38] <Bytram> oxy @ 2017/08/16 06:22:00
[01:37:40] <Fnord666> Pacific Rim was a movie, giant mecha vs. Tokyo sized monsters
[01:37:56] <Bytram> oh? oh!
[01:38:01] <Bytram> sounds kewel...
[01:38:08] <Bytram> like transformers?
[01:38:17] <Fnord666> so now we have two copies of the oxy story?
[01:38:26] <Bytram> or morelike old school godzilla, mothra, etc.
[01:38:43] <Bytram> rofl
[01:38:49] * Bytram ismore tired than he thot.
[01:38:54] <Fnord666> old school godzilla vs. giant robots
[01:39:02] <Fnord666> manned by people
[01:39:02] <Bytram> sounds neat!
[01:39:20] <Bytram> all it needs is a cameo by King Kong!
[01:39:39] <Fnord666> yup
[01:39:52] <Bytram> that, of course, would be a King Kong Cameo!
[01:40:15] <Fnord666> yes it would. :) so how did we get two copies of the oxy story?
[01:40:25] <Bytram> I was not paying attention.
[01:40:38] <Fnord666> ah
[01:40:50] <Bytram> Just to be on the safe side, please *edit* YOUR copy of the story...
[01:40:56] <Bytram> when you are ready, I will delete mine.
[01:41:06] <Bytram> just want to make sure that only one copy gets nixed
[01:41:55] <Fnord666> ok go ahead and nix yours
[01:42:00] <Bytram> nodnod
[01:42:34] <Bytram> I still see your copy in the story queue... looks like we are good. Do you see the same?
[01:42:56] <Fnord666> yes
[01:43:02] <Bytram> yayz!
[01:43:19] <Fnord666> hmmm. looks like an opportunity for improvement in the system
[01:43:31] <Bytram> when it comes to slashcode/rehash, it does some amazing stuff, and some amazingly braindead stuff... and sometimes there is no way to know which one you'll get.
[01:43:35] <Bytram> better safe thazn sorry!
[01:43:52] <Fnord666> lol.
[01:45:19] <Bytram> IEEE milestone
[01:45:46] <Fnord666> thoughts on aristarchus' latest submissions?
[01:46:20] <Bytram> hate to admit it, but I tend to avoid them -- have yet to see one that wasn't heavily slanted one way or another...
[01:46:37] <Bytram> but would like to be happily surprised by being shown something different
[01:47:21] <Fnord666> They are definitely in the "other 10% content" section of the submissions queue vs. tech type submissions
[01:47:52] <Fnord666> I would be happy too but these two aren't it.
[01:48:38] <Bytram> sad face
[01:49:01] <Fnord666> So many of the submissions from IRC are mine.
[01:49:18] <Fnord666> I'm assuming that I shouldn't be self-promoting them?
[01:49:47] <Bytram> we generally try to avoid that... and there are a bunch that I submitted (via IRC)
[01:50:02] <Bytram> take a look at the top of the queue...
[01:50:56] <Bytram> the Cam story is quite interesting. I had no idea it was such big business, and the story presents some interesing aspects of the business, as well.
[01:52:09] <Fnord666> I've looked at that story a couple of times
[01:52:26] <Bytram> wasn't sure if anyone else had even noticed it there.
[01:52:43] <Fnord666> porn is big business and drives a lot of web tech advances I think
[01:53:32] <Bytram> true that, IIRC it was a key factor in the VHS vs Beta wars
[01:54:34] <Bytram> am gonna have to back out on the IEEE story... am too tired to think straight atm.
[01:54:36] <Fnord666> yes it was
[01:54:46] <Fnord666> ok
[01:55:02] <Bytram> 2nding your oxy story
[01:55:22] <Bytram> rnding Rodent Research
[01:55:23] <Fnord666> re the cam girls story, I was just never really sure if there was an actual point to it.
[01:56:56] <Bytram> billions earned, the 'girls' are not always exploited, uses 'facy' tech, and welll, girls.
[01:57:11] <Bytram> 2nding uber fcc audits
[01:59:04] <Bytram> 2nding completed
[02:00:14] <Bytram> okay, that's all I got. really apprecaite the chat and your able assistance!
[02:00:17] <Bytram> teamwork++
[02:00:17] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 146
[02:00:24] <Bytram> !woop
[02:00:25] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[02:01:39] <Fnord666> =)
[02:01:45] <Fnord666> thanks to you as well.
[02:02:03] <Fnord666> try to get some sleep my friend
[02:05:28] <Bytram> that won't be a problem, methinks.
[02:05:36] <Bytram> and a good night's sleep to you, as well@
