[00:11:11] <Bytram> takyon: thank you VERY much for adding in the excerpt for the breaking news - vegas story. Was on my lunch break, heard the report on the news, saw the sub on my mobile phone, and just getting the story out was about all I could manage on it. Was *hoping* someone would update the story. THANKS!

[01:58:56] <Bytram> ~gnight CoolHand
[01:58:58] * exec ceremoniously requisitions a treasure chest of agreement for CoolHand
[01:59:21] <Bytram> looks like you pulled a rare winner on that one!
[01:59:27] <Bytram> laters
[01:59:48] <CoolHand> w00t! finally I get paid! g'nite Bytram
[02:00:08] <CoolHand> oh, wait, just getting paid in "agreement"..
[11:54:36] <Bytram> CoolHand: Good morning! Just a heads up that we try to run stories at an interval of about an hour and half between stories... I go for about 93 minutes just to keep things from getting to predictable.
[11:55:05] <cmn32480> ~gday bytram
[11:55:06] * exec hurriedly deletes a pitcher of moose turd pie from bytram
[11:55:11] <cmn32480> ~gday CoolHand
[11:55:13] * exec whole-heartedly coalesces a uharc archive of poutine-- with CoolHand

[11:55:21] <Bytram> ~gday CoolHand
[11:55:23] * exec slowly hallucinates a spoon of plastic grommets with CoolHand
[11:55:33] <cmn32480> wait.. that was last night
[11:55:35] * Bytram prefers wallace and grommit
[11:55:46] <cmn32480> understood
[11:55:48] <cmn32480> how's things?
[11:56:11] <Bytram> not a big thing, but just one of those 'motherhood' things that comes up with experience
[11:56:35] <Bytram> better... ot a phone call @ 0630... wrong number. :/
[11:56:39] <Bytram> s/ot/got/
[11:56:41] <exec> <Bytram> better... got a phone call @ 0630... wrong number. :/
[11:56:45] <cmn32480> yick
[11:56:52] <cmn32480> but better a wrong number than bad news
[11:57:27] <Bytram> huh. didn't think of that. definitely MUCH better!
[11:57:46] <cmn32480> see? always a silver lining
[11:58:04] <cmn32480> I've started (trying) to remember to think that way
[11:58:11] <Bytram> must mean there are stormclouds on the horizon, eh? ;)
[11:58:21] <cmn32480> not necessarily
[11:58:43] <cmn32480> sometimes a rain shower is just the excuse you need to curl up with a cup of coffee and a book
[11:59:01] <Bytram> true that
[11:59:15] <Bytram> tho, between work and this site, I can't remember when I last had time to read a book

[12:01:15] <cmn32480> holding my own at this point
[12:01:56] <Bytram> like a duck paddling across a pond? All looks calm above the surface, but the legs are going like crazy.
[12:02:04] <cmn32480> pretty much
[12:02:13] <cmn32480> my new guy is working out really well thouhg
[12:02:16] <cmn32480> so that is a big plus
[12:02:20] <Bytram> !woop

[12:55:30] <CoolHand> Bytram: I thought when we ran a politics sub, we squeezed it between the others (since everyone doesn't do that nexus).. I haven't ran one in a while though, so may be out of touch on it
[12:56:02] <cmn32480> Coolhand - genreally.. but it kinda depends on the look of the sub and story queue
[12:56:09] <cmn32480> and ~gday CoolHand
[12:56:14] <cmn32480> ~gday CoolHand
[12:56:15] * exec fanatically deletes an attack helicopter of pork from CoolHand
