[00:03:44] <GreatOutdoors> Oh, hey
[00:05:20] <cmn32480> welcome back my good man
[00:05:28] <cmn32480> how's things?
[00:05:31] <GreatOutdoors> Nope, no kids that I know of yet. Still no wife. Just a new salaried job that takes more than it's fair share of my time and college classes now. Been a decade since I was in school, but the boss gave me a promotion and said I get another as soon as my BS degree is done.
[00:05:51] <cmn32480> musta been somebody else that had a kid
[00:05:56] <GreatOutdoors> aye.
[00:06:00] <cmn32480> I can't keep it all straight anymore
[00:06:56] <cmn32480> glad to hear you got promoted
[00:07:08] <cmn32480> and that things are good even if they are busy
[00:07:20] <GreatOutdoors> Me either. My job really does take a lot of my time, and these college classes are killing me. I am taking 7 hours of classes in a half semester.. basically 14 hours and a 50+ hour a week job.
[00:07:56] <cmn32480> i hope the reward will be worth the sacrifice and hard work
[00:09:10] <GreatOutdoors> The VP guaranteed me a promotion to the senior position as soon as my degree is done, then said I would be the likely candidate for my Boss's job when he retires (less than 5 years from now).
[00:09:29] <cmn32480> NICE!
[00:09:52] <GreatOutdoors> How you been?
[00:09:58] <cmn32480> busy as hell
[00:10:07] <cmn32480> job has been running me ragged
[00:10:19] <cmn32480> but I'm close to hiring a new guy so that'll help
[00:10:27] <GreatOutdoors> What do you do again? I don't remember.
[00:10:37] <cmn32480> Some days I wish i could forget...
[00:10:44] <cmn32480> Wireless infrastructure
[00:11:03] <cmn32480> mobile computers
[00:11:06] <GreatOutdoors> Ahh. I still dont remember it from before. We may have never discussed it, lol
[00:11:06] <cmn32480> that sort of thing
[00:11:13] <cmn32480> anythign is possible
[00:11:28] <cmn32480> i likely wouldn't remember
[00:11:50] <cmn32480> and the kids are filling in whatever gaps exist
[00:11:52] <cmn32480> cub scouts
[00:11:54] <cmn32480> soccer...
[00:11:57] <cmn32480> the usual stuff
[00:12:29] <GreatOutdoors> Scouts is fun. I don't really agree with their new policy on girls though..
[00:12:58] <cmn32480> it has it's place
[00:13:07] <cmn32480> I'm not too sour on it
[00:13:24] <cmn32480> I think that the way thigns are set up it will be good for most of the packs and troops
[00:13:53] <cmn32480> it'll be interesting
[00:13:54] <GreatOutdoors> Yeah... in girl scouts. :) But i'm a bit conservative, so <disclaimer> my views may not represent the views of everyone in this room
[00:14:26] <cmn32480> the girl scouts are quite pissed
[00:15:20] <cmn32480> it'll be an exciting year starting in June for sure
[00:15:31] <GreatOutdoors> I think the whole blending of people stuff that started with the "he/she's" has been taken too far Make a new group for both boys and girls, don't for a boy's group that has been around for ages to change.
[00:15:51] <cmn32480> scouts are coed in all but like 4 countries
[00:16:21] <cmn32480> the US... and 3 others
[00:16:41] <GreatOutdoors> I think they push stuff like this because they know making a group for both will be harder to do, and they want the easy route.
[00:17:26] <GreatOutdoors> Anyway, i was never a scout myself, I was in Royal Rangers, which is similar.
[00:17:43] <cmn32480> I earned my Eagle more than a few years ago
[00:18:22] <cmn32480> anyway...
[00:18:33] <cmn32480> it is good to see you pop in for a visit
[00:20:10] <cmn32480> it is nice to know we haven't been forgotten :-)
[00:20:12] <GreatOutdoors> I'll pop in sometime. May edit a story or two here and there. I still have my privs on the server, so I guess someone knew I would return someday..
[00:20:37] <cmn32480> possibly... or we got lazy and forgot to revoke them
[00:21:17] <GreatOutdoors> I knew that option existed as well, was just hoping for the other.
[00:21:47] <cmn32480> truth is, as a volunteer organization, we nevere know when folks will come and go... and then come back
[00:22:27] <cmn32480> so we don't generally revoke privs unless somebody goes MIA for a really extended period of time
[00:22:41] <GreatOutdoors> I never really left though, just became a reader only for a while. When I left, Charon was pretty much posting everything 3 days ahead, so I didn't feel like there was too much of a dire need for me to be very active at the time.
[00:23:25] <cmn32480> there's a limited number of active eds atm
[00:23:33] <cmn32480> Fnord666, bytram
[00:23:52] <cmn32480> i'm only kinda active
[00:23:59] <cmn32480> coolhand... 'bout the same
[00:24:00] <GreatOutdoors> A guy I used to hang with on IRC like 15 years ago just looked me up on Linkedin and is planning to come visit sometime... lol... Some people just take longer than others to come back.
[00:24:19] <cmn32480> lol
[00:24:52] <cmn32480> charon is MIA... just disappeared one day
[00:24:59] <GreatOutdoors> Really..
[00:25:14] <cmn32480> ~seen charon
[00:25:15] <exec> cmn32480, charon was last seen in #editorial 148 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes, 45 seconds ago with message: a nap sounds very nice
[00:25:20] <GreatOutdoors> thats odd... he was super active.
[00:25:29] <GreatOutdoors> Hope he's ok.
[00:25:43] <cmn32480> we had the same thoughts...
[00:25:56] <cmn32480> but nobody has contact info, so we can't even check on him
[00:26:18] <cmn32480> janrinok has been having some medical issues,
[00:26:30] <cmn32480> everythign is reasonably ok... but you know how that goes
[00:26:56] <GreatOutdoors> aye.
[00:28:53] <cmn32480> people are basically chipping in where they can
[00:30:39] <cmn32480> kinda the way it was all originally intended
[00:30:41] <GreatOutdoors> Well, I have about 200 pages to read tonight and tomorrow, followed by 2 1 hour long audio files, then write a paper and other homework, so I better get on it.
[00:31:02] <GreatOutdoors> I'll be on in the background.
[00:31:24] <cmn32480> woof
[00:31:29] <cmn32480> well enjoy
[00:31:42] <cmn32480> I'm gonna go put my kids to bed and break some stuff on the network
[00:33:24] <GreatOutdoors> Oh, and as far as contact info goes, he had to list an email in his nickname registration for IRC. I would start there.
[00:34:49] <cmn32480> good plan
