[00:00:01] * Bytram hums: nothing from nothjng leaves nothing.
[00:00:15] <Bytram> what the heck... leaving it in
[00:00:30] <Bytram> story set to go out at: 2017/11/04 16:58:00
[00:00:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> bad jokes from the editors are expected now and then. welcomed even.
[00:01:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> at least by me
[00:01:16] <Bytram> nod nod... but taky is touchy if I change things gratuitously without making it clear it did NOT come from him... and I can entirely see his point.
[00:01:28] <Bytram> "Microsoft Says 40 Percent of All VMs in Azure Now Are Running Linux"
[00:02:20] <Bytram> "Microsoft Says 40 Percent of All VMs in Azure Now Are Running Linux" @ 2017/11/04 19:19:00
[00:02:59] <Bytram> mrpg: TheMightyBuzzard: just to double check myself... BSD is not considered Linux, right?
[00:03:35] <mrpg> hm... like a cousin.
[00:03:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> not sure. you should ask as an Ed Note at the bottom of the story
[00:03:44] <Bytram> is what I thought.
[00:03:53] * TheMightyBuzzard chuckles
[00:03:53] <Bytram> I was writing the dept line
[00:03:59] <Bytram> how many are running BSD?
[00:04:01] <mrpg> bsd comes from unix, linux comes from ... minix ¿?¿
[00:04:16] <mrpg> and a bored kid with a pc 386
[00:04:20] <Bytram> Berkley System Distribution IIRC
[00:04:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, the latter.
[00:04:34] <Bytram> I *think* you are right on the minix part
[00:04:44] <Bytram> yup with the bored kid
[00:04:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's more sys v than bsdi
[00:05:48] <Bytram> that would be from AT&T Bell Labs' version following on to System 7 and becoming, eventually, System V Release 3, or some such like that
[00:06:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> woot! perl is the most disliked language on stack exchange!
[00:06:32] <Bytram> dark matter
[00:07:22] <Bytram> @ 2017/11/04 21:40:00
[00:07:22] <Bytram>
[00:07:38] <mrpg> I have two links in the submission, how should I quote them? I'm taking one paragraph fron one and two from the other.
[00:08:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, that perl story should make for some quality arguing this weekend.
[00:08:39] <Bytram> from <a href="">foo</a.> we have <blockquote>...</blockquote> and from <a href="bar">bar</a> we have: <blockqutoe>...</blockquote>?
[00:08:53] <Bytram> mrpg: ^^^ would that work for ya?
[00:09:33] <mrpg> sure ok
[00:09:35] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: umm, whjich perl story?
[00:09:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> the one just subbed through mrplow
[00:10:41] <Bytram> ahhh, it didn't have 'perl' in the title, so ctrl+F did not find it

[00:28:43] <mrpg> it's interesting.
[00:43:07] <mrpg> Ready "Russia's Social Media Meddling Could Spell the End of Online Anonymity"
[00:43:34] <mrpg> If I were forced I just wouldn't post, or would post just about love and peace.
[00:48:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'd troll putin with glowing reviews of the worst shit he did
[00:51:11] <mrpg> tied to your real name and addres John Doewner hawaii second street usa.
[00:53:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> thus the shitposting that i could just claim were my actual views
[00:54:39] <mrpg> bytram your thoughts on this: Alt-right Female Tweeter Actually Russian Troll!
[00:55:18] <Bytram> realDonaldTrump, I would guess from the title?
[00:56:12] <mrpg> wrong, aristarchus
[00:57:19] <Bytram> ahhh, similarly 'screechy'
[00:57:23] <Bytram> linky?
[00:58:31] * Bytram resists the urge to slap a commenter up the head with a clue-by-four
[01:00:29] <mrpg> https://soylentnews.org!
[01:00:30] <upstart> ^ 03Alt-right Female Tweeter Actually Russian Troll!: SoylentNews Submission
[01:04:54] <mrpg> I'll do it. I'll make it look like an accidental spam mod.
[01:05:00] * Bytram is tired, and finding it somewhat difficult to follow what is going on there, but I don't mind the story, at least. As his submissions go, this is on e of the most tame I've seen in a long while
[01:05:09] <mrpg> im talking about the commenter
[01:05:09] <Bytram> huh?
[01:05:14] <Bytram> oh.
[01:05:26] <Bytram> was already modded down
[01:05:30] <Bytram> IIRC: offtopic
[01:05:47] <mrpg> ok, let's get to it tomorrow, it can be made a good story.
[01:05:58] <Bytram> btw, there is a typo in that story: "and alt-right, ad the world," should be: "and alt-right, and the world, "
[01:06:33] <Bytram> seriosuly, I really don't see anything terible about the submission... let 'er rip, I'd say.
[01:07:04] <Bytram> oh, and there is a gratuitous "<br>" in the opening paragraph.
[01:07:47] <Bytram> mrpg: ^^^ go for it with the russian troll story
[01:08:24] <mrpg> ok, tomorrow, I'm tired today. I'll do somethign easier.
[01:10:34] * TheMightyBuzzard offers to fix it up with a lorem ipsum sed
[01:10:47] <mrpg> ill do the hated languages
[01:11:32] * TheMightyBuzzard tips hat to mrpg
[01:11:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> looking forward to arguing about that
[01:22:19] <Bytram> well! The community never ceases to amaze me. As much as I was sorely tempted to go toe-to-toe with someone who was complaining that their submission had not been accepted, I tried to provide an informative response and assume that they were, how does it go, ignorant rather than malicous/selfish/whatever..

[01:22:21] <upstart> ^ 03SoylentNews Comments | What the Web Was and What It Has Become ( https://soylentnews.org )
[01:22:35] <Bytram> and that comment has already been modded up twice already.
[01:23:09] <mrpg> Ready people hating on perl. I understood _jack_ about the tags, the increase, the percent, nothing. My math teacher Sal Khan wouldn't be proud:-(
[01:24:08] <Bytram> let's see what happens with a follow-on reply to another comment of his/hers complaining about the handling of their submission: https://soylentnews.org

[01:29:07] <Bytram> well, it's a friday night, and if I have any hope of getting a good night's sleep, I better get to it before the neighbor's get too far into their partying.
[01:29:17] <Bytram> have a good night, everyone!
[01:29:28] <mrpg> bye!
[01:29:46] <Bytram> appreciate your jumping in to help out with the story queue!!!!
