[00:08:39] <upstart> ^ 03Guajataca Dam in Puerto Rico Failing - 70,000 at Risk - Evacuations Ordered: SoylentNews Submission
[00:08:54] <Bytram> any eds here?
[00:12:52] <Bytram> *crickets*
[00:13:17] <Bytram> ~eds Just posted a Breaking News story to the queue... anybody here to take a look at it?
[00:13:18] <exec> editor ping for Bytram (reason: just posted a breaking news story to the queue... anybody here to take a look at it?): janrinok zz_janrinok n1 nick martyb Bytram cmn32480 coolhand takyon bytram|away Fnord666 charon GreatOutdoors FatPhil Snow goodie mrpg
[00:16:28] * TheMightyBuzzard can look at it but would probably add more mistakes than he fixed
[00:16:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> possibly even on accident
[00:16:53] <Bytram> just looking to get another opinion on whether it warrants a breaking news story
[00:17:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> the dam thing?
[00:17:53] <Bytram> yuppers
[00:18:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> probably not enough puerto rican types in the community to make much of a difference but it's a legitimate warning, so if ya feel like it.
[00:18:58] <Bytram> k
[00:19:46] <Bytram> prolly enough folk in houston and Fl who might identify with the feeling of imminent flooding
[00:20:53] <Bytram> in the queue, due out in about 10 minutes
[00:23:19] * TheMightyBuzzard is currently enriching his mind
[00:23:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> which is to say, watching cheech and chong
[00:23:50] <Bytram> "up in smoke"?
[00:24:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> tonight, yep
[00:24:51] <Bytram> seem to recall seeing it when I was in college... good enough, I suppose.
[00:25:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> i don't mind oldschool stoners. it's the new idiots i don't care for.
[00:26:53] <Bytram> I dunno... idiots are idiots... what's the difference? A few gray hairs? ;)
[00:29:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> old ones were all mellow and got along with everybody.

[00:31:22] <mrpg> hi
[00:32:29] <mrpg> There's two stories at a 30 min interval for tomorrow.
[00:32:58] <Bytram> mrpg: is one of them a Breaking News story?
[00:32:59] <mrpg> I came to say "beware!"
[00:33:24] <mrpg> no, it is a ioc thing
[00:33:42] <Bytram> I see it now.... yeah, I was rescheduling things after inserting the breaking news story
[00:33:43] <mrpg> lowrisc, sorry
[00:33:54] <mrpg> that's what I thought.
[00:34:14] <Bytram> as it is the weekend, I aim for 141 minute spacing to give us a break
[00:34:21] <mrpg> good
[00:34:28] <Bytram> i.e. 2hr 21 minutes (give or take)
[00:35:07] <Bytram> move lowRISC to: 2017/09/23 04:13:00
[00:35:15] <mrpg> ok, i'll change mine.
[00:35:21] <Bytram> hold on
[00:35:36] <Bytram> I've got a little program I wrote wqhich calculates delta times from a given story in the queue

[00:35:43] <mrpg> good
[00:36:04] <Bytram> so, if you rescheulde stuff, I'll get ALL lost
[00:36:11] <mrpg> ok, waiting.
[00:36:44] <Bytram> booze, 2017/09/23 06:34:00
[00:37:38] <Bytram> beijing railway: 2017/09/23 06:45:00
[00:38:27] <Bytram> oops.. that didn't work
[00:38:45] <Bytram> let's try: 2017/09/23 09:06:00
[00:39:14] <Bytram> btw, love the beijing train dept line!
[00:40:23] <Bytram> mrpg: done!
[00:40:39] <mrpg> hehe
[00:41:02] <Bytram> there's a goodly bunch of submissions atm
[00:41:20] <mrpg> yes.
[00:42:19] <mrpg> Puerto Rico with no electricity, mexico 3 earthquaskes in a month, Venezuela 5 in a week (but below 3.5).
[00:42:54] <Bytram> lessee... about 20 stories... 2hr 20m spacing == 2.3 hrs * 20 = 46 hours... gets us to monday at sunup on the US east coast... YAYS!
[00:43:13] <mrpg> And two islands in the caribbena, martinique and guadeloupe.
[00:43:23] <Bytram> or at least really close to that... and assuming we don't have any more good submissions over the w/w
[00:43:39] <mrpg> I'll come tomorrow to work on a few more.
[00:43:41] <Bytram> btw, have you heard of "The JR Technique"??
[00:43:52] <mrpg> jr, no, what is that?
[00:44:19] <Bytram> It's a reference to our (currently on leave) Editor In Chief... Jan Rinok.
[00:44:41] <Bytram> on friday, he'd go through and push out as many stories into the story queue as possible...
[00:44:50] <Bytram> in other words, draw down the submissions queue.
[00:44:58] <Bytram> that tended to encourage more story submissions and
[00:45:09] <Bytram> increase the chances that we would actually get enough submissions to make
[00:45:19] <Bytram> it through the weekend without having yto find and submit our own stories
[00:45:48] <Bytram> pretty sweet, eh?
[00:47:23] <mrpg> nice indeed.
[00:47:49] <Bytram> to put it in the british vernacular, I'd say it was "Brilliant!"
