[03:06:00] <takyon> might submit photonic story
[03:06:01] <takyon> I had it open
[03:06:18] <Bytram> headline caught my attention and seems
[03:07:03] <Bytram> emphasis on *seems* to address one of the typical problems with that area being things are hard to keep stable long enough to do much with 'em
[03:07:21] <Bytram> or am I confusing photonics with qubits and quantum 'stuff'?
[03:07:25] <Bytram> or both?
[03:08:09] * Bytram clicks on link and starts to read the photonics story
[03:08:24] <takyon> I missed the big quantum stories from last week
[03:08:28] <takyon> too bad nobody submitted them
[03:11:38] <Bytram> heh... looks like I was on the right path. Near the end of that story:
[03:11:39] <Bytram> “The new technique allows us to preserve the quantum nature of the stored bit for more than 100 milliseconds”, says Matthias Körber, a doctoral candidate at the experiment. “Although an envisioned global quantum network which allows for secure and reliable transport of quantum information still demands a lot of research, the long-lived storage of quantum bits is one of the key technologies and we believe that the c
[03:11:40] <Bytram> urrent improvements will bring us a significant step closer to its realization.”
[03:25:48] <Fnord666> evening gents!
[03:26:00] <takyon> hi
[03:26:05] <takyon> jones gonna weeeeen
[03:26:32] <Fnord666> takyon thanks a million for all the submissions you've put up!
[03:26:44] <takyon> no problemo
[03:26:56] <takyon> well it is a problem. someone else should submit a lot
[03:27:35] <Fnord666> True true but then I can't post my own submissions
[03:29:45] <Fnord666> be that as it may, thanks again.
[03:30:20] <takyon> thumbs up emoji
[03:30:22] <Fnord666> I need to come up with a better workflow for submissions myself
[03:30:28] <Fnord666> takyon++
[03:30:28] <Bender> karma - takyon: 68
[03:30:39] <takyon> maybe I can help you
[03:30:51] <takyon> I use Gogol News and Claws-Mail for RSS
[03:31:01] <Fnord666> I will not turn down the offer
[03:31:31] <Bytram> I would certainly like to submit more stories (and comments, too)
[03:31:48] <Bytram> but I rarelyt have any time left during this season after I've pushed out a few stories.
[03:32:16] <Bytram> Fnord666: and MANY thanks to YOU for slamming out stories at a phenomenal rate!
[03:32:25] <Fnord666> howdy Bytram!
[03:32:37] <Bytram> doody! Fnord666
[03:32:37] <Fnord666> You're welcome. I could say the same for you.
[03:32:42] <Bytram> moi?
[03:32:44] <Bytram> ;)
[03:32:50] <Fnord666> si
[03:32:56] <Fnord666> bytram++
[03:32:56] <Bender> karma - bytram: 58
[03:33:05] <Bytram> I gotta admit, takyon helps me to look good!
[03:33:47] <Fnord666> No arguments here.
[03:34:02] <Bytram> as long as I have been at this, I still cannot accurately predict what kind of reaction any given story will get from the community
[03:34:35] <Fnord666> You're not just whistling dixie, as they say.
[03:34:40] <Bytram> I'll thnk: THIS one will get a lot of comments, and there might be 20 or 30
[03:34:47] <Bytram> another one I pass on, and it gets 100 comments
[03:35:02] <Bytram> people are certainly non-deterministic
[03:35:18] <Fnord666> That's what makes it fun!
[03:35:42] <Fnord666> and I'm very happy to see J is back!
[03:35:47] <Bytram> good pont
[03:35:50] <Bytram> *point
[03:35:59] <Bytram> and... challenging at the same time.
[03:36:08] <Fnord666> definitely
[03:36:22] <Bytram> as much as I try to be supportive of the community's interests... they keep suprising me!
[03:37:14] <Fnord666> And then there's those special few....
[03:37:31] <Bytram> so, for me, it's about one half being a gut feeling on how much I think the community will like a story, one half about how much *I* like a story, and one half how much time to I have a available to edit this story and the others I need to post before I head out to work.
[03:37:59] <Fnord666> Sounds about right.
[03:38:00] <Bytram> I math good, eh?
[03:38:28] <Fnord666> absatively
[03:38:59] <Bytram> no bout a doubt it!
[03:39:04] <Bytram> ;)
[03:39:41] <Bytram> and... I've got yet another early day ahead of me tomorrow, so am going to have to bid ewe all a dew.
[03:40:05] <Bytram> have a good night everyone!
[03:40:11] <Fnord666> good night Bytram!
[03:40:22] <Bytram> mare see!
[03:40:30] <Fnord666> hope you get a good night's sleep
[03:40:51] <Bytram> thank you! me too!
[03:41:00] <Fnord666> ;)
[03:41:09] <Bytram> btw, looks like you are on the cusp of breaking 1500 stories posted!
[03:41:16] <Bytram> https://soylentnews.org

[03:41:18] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews: Hall of Fame
[03:41:25] <Fnord666> seriously?
[03:41:35] <Fnord666> hmmm.
[03:41:37] <Bytram> and... within site of LamX's mark
[03:41:46] <Bytram> s/ite/ight/
[03:41:48] <exec> <Bytram> and... within sight of LamX's mark
[03:42:57] <Bytram> a quick glance at the story list page, and it sure looks to me that you have already passed 1500!
[03:43:04] <Fnord666> Meanwhile you've blown past 4500 like it was nothing
[03:43:07] <Bytram> Well done, and congratulations!
[03:43:17] * Fnord666 bows graciously
[03:43:34] <Bytram> yeah, it's easy once you learn how to type while 90% asleep at the keyboard
[03:43:44] <Fnord666> :)
[03:44:03] <Fnord666> Just doing what I can to help out
[03:44:04] <Bytram> (IOW, many a LATE night posting, usually going tit-for-tat with cmn32480)
[03:44:13] <Bytram> same here... I just been doing it longer is all.
[03:44:39] <Fnord666> very true
[03:45:40] <Fnord666> takyon - so how are you using Claws Mail for RSS? Via a plugin?
[03:46:01] <takyon> let me check
[03:46:16] <Bytram> okay, I really need some shuteye
[03:46:16] <takyon> I didn't have to download anything extra, I just enabled something
[03:46:33] <Fnord666> ~gnight Bytram
[03:46:35] * exec disturbingly runs the Installshield Wizard to set up a zip archive of gaiety for Bytram
[03:46:35] <Bytram> ciao ciao ciao for now
[03:46:40] <Bytram> ~gnight Fnord666
[03:46:42] * exec carefully cropdusts a gallon of trail mix over Fnord666
[03:46:51] <Bytram> I laugh at your plenty
[03:46:51] <Fnord666> yum, trail mix
[03:47:06] <Bytram> or did my laughter get compressed
[03:47:15] <Bytram> iz hardz to tellz
[03:47:27] <Bytram> catch ya all later.
[03:47:41] <Fnord666> later!
[03:47:52] <takyon> Fnord666
[03:48:10] <Fnord666> yes sir
[03:48:17] <takyon> what I probably did was go to Configuration - Plugins... - Load
[03:48:31] <takyon> selected the rssyl plugin
[03:48:47] <Fnord666> ok, that was one that caught my eye
[03:48:50] <takyon> jesus it loves to crash
[03:49:07] <Fnord666> It wouldn't be a windows app if it didn't
[03:49:17] <takyon> That should make a new folder called My Feeds
[03:49:31] <takyon> Right click that, select Subscribe new feed
[03:50:06] <takyon> Put the URL to the RSS feed or XML (I think ATOM works??)
[03:50:32] <takyon> usually it gives a title for the feed that looks alright, but sometimes I need to rename them
[03:51:42] <takyon> here's the feeds I added: http://puu.sh
[03:52:06] <Fnord666> cool
[03:52:14] <takyon> the ones that accumulate too many stories a day usually get ignored by me because I can't keep up
[03:55:29] <Fnord666> some of those look like they've really been off to the races.
[04:05:37] <Fnord666> takyon Do you use claws as your mail client then as well?
[04:05:48] <takyon> no, I just got it to use for the RSS
[04:06:51] <Fnord666> ah, ok
[04:18:56] <Fnord666> takyon - tahnks for the info. That seems to be working well as an RSS reader
[04:19:49] <Fnord666> s/tahnks/thanks/
[04:19:51] <exec> <Fnord666> takyon - thanks for the info. That seems to be working well as an RSS reader
