[10:47:19] <Bytram> FatPhil: Hi there! Good to see ya looking at the story queue!
[11:03:53] <FatPhil> shitty fucking day at work, brain's imploding
[11:04:31] <FatPhil> I always have my IRC windows visible, and I noticed mention of the queue, so put 2 and 2 together
[11:05:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, there's a support group for that. they meet at $local_bar every day around 5:30pm.

[11:06:08] * MrPlow smakes TheMightyBuzzard upside the head with a sac of dice
[11:06:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> ewww
[11:06:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> meh, i should be coding but my head hurts

[11:07:25] <Bytram> rofl
[11:08:55] <Bytram> in college, during a heavy study binge, one of my dormmates complained that her head hurt. Someone offered some aspirin. She replied to the effect of "I don't have a headache, my *brain* hurts." -- we all nodded in agreement
[11:19:59] <FatPhil> phobos/deimos story absolutely needs a Doom reference, surely?
[11:20:15] <Bytram> I suppose
[11:20:21] <Bytram> wait...
[11:21:19] <FatPhil> just put in a suggestion...
[11:21:35] <Bytram> maybe, instead: https://fi.wikipedia.org
[11:21:36] <upstart> ^ 03Leather Goddesses of Phobos – Wikipedia
[11:21:49] <FatPhil> I was also thinking about leather goddesses too!
[11:21:56] <Bytram> hmmm, 'Goddess' or 'Goddesses' ??
[11:22:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, you're always thinking about leather goddesses though.
[11:22:21] <Bytram> wasn't sure how old the reference was and might go over toomany of our audience
[11:22:23] <FatPhil> yeah, who isn't?
[11:22:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> says the guy who submitted 7 boobies stories
[11:22:41] <Bytram> I've got it: L.G.O.P.
[11:23:05] <Bytram> heh... that wiki like was to the finnish(?) site!
[11:23:32] <Bytram> that's better: https://en.wikipedia.org
[11:23:33] <FatPhil> Finns love their leather godesses
[11:23:33] <upstart> ^ 03Leather Goddesses of Phobos - Wikipedia
[11:23:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> just make sure you finnish editing it before you run off to work

[11:27:08] <Bytram> Heh!
[11:27:12] <Bytram> "In the 2015 film The Martian starring Matt Damon, Leather Goddesses of Phobos was referenced as being loaded on fellow astronaut Beth Johanssen's laptop along with Infocom's Zork II."
[11:27:21] * Bytram noticed that!
[11:28:41] <Bytram> FatPhil++ thanks again for helping with the story load!
[11:28:41] <Bender> karma - fatphil: 6
[11:28:50] <Bytram> FatPhil++
[11:28:50] <Bender> karma - fatphil: 7
[11:29:04] * Bytram is still exhausted... going back to bed.
[11:41:54] <FatPhil> woke in a daze at 5am this morning. not gonna be a good day for concentration...
[12:46:40] <Bytram> FatPhil: I hear ya! Some days, I can tell it is gonna be one of *those* days. I reset my expectations, focus my energies on the accumulated no-thinkums: purging spam from email folders, organizing files, cleaning my desk... that kind of stuff. It ends up being a productive day, and after a better night's sleep, I'm able to go at things with something closer to my usual gusto.
[12:46:50] <Bytram> Hang in there!
[12:49:11] <Bytram> Fnord666: thanks a bunch for catching the lack-of-capitalization in the Vampire story! I noticed it after I shutdown my PC. hat tip to ya!
[12:57:12] <FatPhil> Was that me?
[12:57:30] <FatPhil> I fixed some em dashes, that was all!
[12:58:00] <FatPhil> I don't honestly remember. Not laying down memories presently.
[12:58:25] <FatPhil> derp, and suffering an inability to read
[12:59:10] <FatPhil> Weirdest thing about my sleep issues is that sometimes the *most* refreshed I feel is after the shortest of naps (literally 5-10 minute catnaps)
[12:59:45] <Bytram> naps++
[12:59:45] <Bender> karma - naps: 2
[13:01:26] <Bytram> Trick is to wake up during the right part of the sleep cycle. Being awoken in the middle of REM causes an extended period of disorientation for me. IIRC, when pilots take naps, they are limited to 39 minutes. So that when they wake, they are actually awake and can take action. Studies showed that more than that put them in a different phase of sleep that was disorineting.
[13:01:37] <Bytram> *disorienting. Drat!
[15:32:53] <FatPhil> Been waiting for https://soylentnews.org (US/Jap Mecha fight) for soooooooo long.
[15:32:53] <upstart> ^ 03Error
[15:33:29] <FatPhil> tonight's a beer event (really got no clue what), but I think I'll grab a bellyful, and then watch the vid when I get back home!
[15:33:54] <FatPhil> Is there an informal policy regarding politics stories, and time spacing?
[15:35:00] <FatPhil> I know some people don't like the politics and nuke that nexus so was wondering whether the non-pol stories either side should be squeezed together a bit more?
[15:36:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, last i looked we liked to keep them to one a day but it's not a formal thing.
[15:37:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, you meant compared to regular stories. no, there's no policy at all. everyone's been treating them like regular stories.
[15:38:34] <FatPhil> one a day makes sense
[15:39:13] <FatPhil> there are a lot in the sumbissions list presently. Don't particularly want to touch many of those, there's clearly a bit inflamatory.
[15:39:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> really, we should ignore the main page nexus stories for deciding their time since they're nexus stories.
[15:39:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> touch the boobies instead =P
[15:39:54] * TheMightyBuzzard sighs
[15:39:56] <FatPhil> well, tonight is sauna night, so there will be boobies at home :)
[15:40:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> so many boob jokes, so little time.
[15:40:18] <FatPhil> but first, some wind-down beers
[15:40:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> sound policy
[18:04:34] <FatPhil> beers drunk, vidy a playin'
[19:20:46] -!- Sirfinku_ has quit [Quit: Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com]
[20:33:08] <FatPhil> vidya was meh. Sauna was gooooooooooooood.
[21:38:08] <Bytram> FatPhil: glad to hear you are taking a break and were able to relax -- does wonders for what ails us!
