[02:18:27] <Fnord666> I thought for sure bing would provide, but no....
[02:20:01] <Bytram> Fnord666: Found this years ago... can't locate, offhand, the orginal source I found it, but thought you might get a kick out of this: https://en.wikisource.org
[02:20:02] <upstart> ^ 03The Chaos - Wikisource, the free online library
[02:21:53] <Fnord666> Just from a quick glance I can see that I will most definitely enjoy reading it.
[02:22:02] <Fnord666> Thanks for digging that up!
[02:22:02] <Bytram> ahhh, here's a better source for "The Chaos": http://www.spellingsociety.org
[02:22:03] <upstart> ^ 03500 Internal Server Error
[02:22:08] <Bytram> darn!
[02:22:26] <Bytram> well, that *was* the most definitive source I'd found "back then"
[02:22:59] <Bytram> hmmm
[02:23:07] <Bytram> http://www.spellingsociety.org
[02:23:08] <upstart> ^ 03500 Internal Server Error
[02:23:11] <Bytram> nope

[02:25:54] <Bytram> rly? I just *tried* to use the wayback machine and it came up not found!???!
[02:26:02] <Bytram> YES!!
[02:26:06] <Bytram> that's the page!
[02:26:41] <Fnord666> had to use the caos.html name
[02:27:27] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:27:30] <Bytram> Enjoy!
[02:28:15] <Fnord666> I will.
[02:28:19] <Bytram> =)
[02:36:33] <Bytram> Fnord666: Before I take leave for the evening, I wanted to mention something to you...
[02:37:41] <Bytram> Congratulations on posting your 1,000th story! (It's not yet on 'the list' -- https://soylentnews.org ), but I can see you have some stories awaiting release in the queue and didn't want to take a chance on noting this tremendous accomplishment!
[02:37:43] <upstart> ^ 03SoylentNews: Hall of Fame
[02:37:45] <Bytram> !wooop
[02:37:48] <Bytram> !woop
[02:37:48] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[02:39:28] * Fnord666 bows humbly
[02:39:54] <Fnord666> You were correct earlier when you were chatting with JR.
[02:40:07] <Fnord666> I was sort of looking for a particularly good story
[02:40:32] <Fnord666> but the queue called and needed fed. :)
[02:44:07] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:45:09] <Bytram> it may take me a bit longer to grok things, but it's usually 'cause I've notice a bit more than most folks and it takes me longer to assimilate, digest, and discern
[02:45:32] <Fnord666> I added a link to the teen risk story. The doi link is going to an elsevier linkhub that isn't going anywhere else for me
[02:47:45] <Bytram> does it say that a login or subscriptionis required?
[02:48:16] * Bytram must admit he just copy/pasted it from the source... failed to actually *try* it. :(
[02:48:29] <Fnord666> No, I was getting a blank page. It worked in Chrome though so I'll just leave it alone
[02:48:40] <Bytram> hrm? that's strange!
[02:48:50] <Bytram> are you in the story atm?
[02:48:57] * Bytram goes to look
[02:49:27] <Bytram> ahh, javascript is required
[02:49:53] <Fnord666> ublock origin was trapping the redirect
[02:50:18] <Bytram> I have uBlock Origin installed, but I run Pale Moon
[02:50:44] <Fnord666> I turned it off the the elsevier page and the redirect worked correctly after that
[02:50:46] <Bytram> had to tell noscript to allow ellselvier and adobetm
[02:50:54] <Bytram> nodnod
[02:51:05] <Fnord666> funny thing is that chrome has ublock origin also but it worked there
[02:51:09] <Fnord666> go figure
[02:51:16] <Bytram> oj... 2 + 2 = 4
[02:51:30] <Fnord666> lol
[02:52:24] * Bytram can't even spell 'ok' -- lol!
[02:53:52] <Fnord666> :)
[02:54:19] <Bytram> This is *really* strange! I went to add a blank line before your 'alt link' and to change that text to be 'Alternate link', but when I clicked on 'Edit' on a read-only copy of the page... your alt link was not even there!
[02:55:11] <Bytram> Also, strange things happen when there are any other attributes in an anchor tag besides the href= ... rel=nofolow, title='whatever' ... those seem to need to be deleted for it to render correctly on our site.
[02:56:33] <Fnord666> Interesting. I did edit the story to remove the alternative link since the main doi link was working.
[02:56:43] <Bytram> THAT
[02:56:49] <Bytram> Oh!
[02:56:57] <Bytram> that's why I couldn't find ht elink in the source!
[02:57:21] <Bytram> I kept thinking there must be some kind of caching problem with the site!
[02:57:43] <Fnord666> Thought you might want to know that it was me.
[02:57:53] <Bytram> in that case.. give me a minute or two and I'll add it back in.
[02:58:10] <Fnord666> oh, ok.
[02:58:31] <Fnord666> gotta help with a homework problem. biab.
[02:58:43] <Bytram> I needs to get to sleep
[02:58:53] <Bytram> Fnord666: really good chatting with ya... Have a great night1
[02:58:55] <Bytram> !
[03:01:44] <Bytram> risk taking story updated.
[03:01:53] <Bytram> and with that, I bid you adieu!
[03:13:20] <Fnord666> Good night Bytram.
[03:14:23] <Fnord666> and good night #editorial

[19:04:27] <Bytram> whereto? https://www.washingtonpost.com
[19:04:28] <upstart> ^ 03Texas governor urges people to evacuate, even if it’s not ‘mandatory’ - The Washington Post ( https://www.washingtonpost.com )
[19:04:41] <Bytram> yep, thought I could trim the parameter at the end
[19:13:22] <Bytram> Fnord666: takyon: Just finished reviewing and posting the Houston Hurricane story...
[19:14:38] <Bytram> tried to generalize it to give it more coverage about the actual hurricane and flooding, rather than just a sh*t-storm about whether or not people should have been ordered to evacuate.
[19:15:53] <Bytram> the story is prolly 30+% longer that the original submission, but was starting to see word salad and figured it was best to post what I had had so far.
[19:16:47] * Bytram is knackered -- time for a break, lunch, and maybe a nap.
[19:39:44] <chromas> the replyasap google store link is broken
