[00:27:11] <mrpg> hi
[00:27:20] <mrpg> i just did the chelsea manning merge.
[00:28:49] <cmn32480> danke
[00:33:00] <Bytram> mrpg: muchos danke!
[00:33:05] <Bytram> oh. wait...
[00:33:07] <Bytram> ;)
[00:33:17] <mrpg> welcome
[00:33:27] <mrpg> Should I do the south park story? i just saw that episode.
[00:34:24] <mrpg> i didnt find it funny. maybe too much us centric for me.
[00:34:32] <Bytram> oh, btw, one we get past friday evening (EDT), I have lately been taking to spotting stories every 141 minutes (2hr 21min)
[00:34:40] <Bytram> s/one/once/
[00:34:41] <exec> <Bytram> oh, btw, once we get past friday evening (EDT), I have lately been taking to spotting stories every 141 minutes (2hr 21min)
[00:35:08] <cmn32480> I'm foods with that
[00:35:32] <Bytram> given how we sometimes run dry come sunday or early monday, saves us from having to scramble to find ANY story we possibly can to keep things going
[00:35:48] <Bytram> also, gives *US* some kind of a break on the w/e, too. =) =)
[00:35:55] <cmn32480> yeah
[00:36:27] <Bytram> not that the calendar weekends correspond to my days off, but even Ars Technica dials it back far more than that!
[00:36:44] <Bytram> theypost, maybe, a half-dozen stories a day on the w/e
[00:39:58] * Bytram just took a look at the submissions queue... things look kinda spare there.
[00:40:49] <Bytram> suggest we space out the already scheduled stories to get us further through the weekend before we run out.
[00:41:47] <Bytram> moving angry birds to: 2017/09/15 16:23:00

[02:21:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> kirk, janeway, archer, sisko, picard
[02:22:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> sometimes him n janeway switch places. sometimes sisko and picard do.
[02:22:52] <cmn32480> not sure where archer sits in the mix yet
[02:23:01] <cmn32480> but I'd agree on the first 2
