[02:44:16] <Fnord666_> Good. Yourself?
[02:44:16] <Bytram> not *another* one!??!
[02:44:28] <Fnord666_> another day another leak....
[02:44:40] <Bytram> utterly knackered
[02:45:32] <Fnord666_> oh good, a marketing research firm…
[02:45:44] <Fnord666_> extremely knackered
[02:46:12] <Fnord666_> big surprise
[02:46:13] <Fnord666_> The database was discovered in October in a misconfigured Amazon Web Services S3 cloud storage "bucket,"
[02:46:13] <Bytram> had just fallen asleep last night when 30 minutes later get a txt from my manager... coworker had locked up the master keys to the department... was questionable if we could open tomorrow. Though I was scheduled for 10am, I had a couple ideas that might work and said I'd be in at 0700 to hepl with seeing up the dept for the day...
[02:46:32] <Bytram> and, of course, woke at 0430 and could not get back to sleep.
[02:46:42] <Fnord666_> that’s the worst part...
[02:46:45] <Bytram> got there at 0710, and there was no problem with the keys...
[02:46:53] <Fnord666_> oh no
[02:47:01] <Bytram> they'd called security last night who had a master key and straightened things out
[02:47:15] <Bytram> but, of course, forgot to fill the rest of us in on *that* development
[02:47:26] <Fnord666_> didn’t want to wake you. :(
[02:47:36] <Bytram> after that, I put in an 11 hour day.
[02:47:47] <Bytram> then had a meeting to attend last night
[02:47:53] <Bytram> got home around 9:15pm
[02:48:09] <Fnord666_> ugh
[02:48:15] <Bytram> dinner should be ready by now... back in a few minutes
[02:48:19] <Fnord666_> k
[02:48:22] <Fnord666_> enjoy
[02:49:34] <Bytram> back
[02:49:37] <Bytram> and forth...
[02:49:52] <Bytram> you?
[02:53:33] <Fnord666_> That was a quick dinner
[02:54:11] <Fnord666_> Just looking over the wordpress plugin bit
[02:54:28] <Fnord666_> looks like the person behind it is a repeat offender
[02:54:40] <Bytram> Oh, I only fetched the dinner... now I am trying to eat it and type, too

[02:54:57] <Fnord666_> ah
[02:55:10] <Fnord666_> that works too
[02:55:50] <Fnord666_> I’m doing well. Just getting ready for the holidays, although it will just be a small family gathering
[02:55:55] <Bytram> yup, just makes it a bit harder to type
[02:56:08] <Bytram> sounds nice
[02:56:47] <Fnord666_> Yes it is.
[02:57:21] <Fnord666_> The bigger gathering is on my wife’s side of the family but most of them live in the same area so we will travel there (couple of hours) rather than host.
[02:57:44] <Bytram> although there is a special energy having *lots* of family members in attendence at the same time, there's a lot to be said for a smaller, more intimiate gathering
[02:59:00] <Fnord666_> Definitely pros to both waysif you have the space
[02:59:42] <Bytram> agreed

[03:01:52] <Fnord666_> Wow. shooting for top 5
[03:02:07] <Bytram> yuppers!!!
[03:02:09] <Bytram> And, as you may have noticed, this is my crunch time at work and will likely continue for another month or so... really appreciate all the stories you've pushed out lately!!!!!!!
[03:02:22] <Fnord666_> np
[03:02:41] <Bytram> oh, and it look like takyon is under-the-weather, too. :(
[03:02:44] <Fnord666_> you’ve been doing uite a bit yourself for it being crunch time.
[03:02:54] <Fnord666_> s/uite/quite/
[03:02:56] <exec> <Fnord666_> you’ve been doing quite a bit yourself for it being crunch time.
[03:03:22] <Fnord666_> I hadn’t seen that re takyon
[03:03:51] <Bytram> If I look, and the queue is w4ell nigh empty, I can usually push out a few, depending on the state of the submissions, sometimes I can pump out 8 or so in a half-hour or so
[03:04:23] * Bytram wonders how many subs tak has made, but don't feel like doing a db query atm
[03:04:44] <Fnord666_> quite a few in the past few months it seems like
[03:05:19] <Bytram> yuppers
[03:05:28] <Bytram> I'm now down to 1 day off per week
[03:05:31] <Fnord666_> Great subs too
[03:05:38] <Fnord666_> oof
[03:05:54] <Bytram> yuppers, and, yes... Oooomph!
[03:06:06] <Fnord666_> I’ll try and stay on top of things. I’m off thru the end of the year.
[03:06:23] <Bytram> at least I *do* get paid for overtime, so that helps a great deal to make up for it.
[03:06:34] <Bytram> vacation++
[03:06:34] <Bender> karma - vacation: 1
[03:06:44] <Bytram> Fnord666++
[03:06:44] <Bender> karma - fnord666: 30
[03:06:47] <Bytram> =)
[03:07:20] <Fnord666_> yeah, overtime I do not get.
[03:08:07] <Fnord666_> But fortunately work is pretty reasonable
[03:08:10] <Bytram> IIRC I put in about 54 hours last week
[03:08:18] <Bytram> an dsimilar the week before
[03:08:28] <Bytram> s/ d/d /
[03:08:29] <exec> <Bytram> and similar the week before
[03:09:39] <Fnord666_> I normally run 45-50 per week, depending on the project but most of the development that I do is enjoyable or engaging enough that it seems like less.
[03:11:21] <Bytram> when I was younger, I'd do 50-55 hrs/wk for months on end
[03:12:19] <Bytram> then again, that was with regularly scheduled hours... now I can as likely as not work an opening shift (be @ work at 0700) or a closing shift (leave just past midnight)
[03:12:40] <Fnord666_> That can be a bit of a PITA
[03:13:09] <Bytram> here's a couple of (possibly-related) stories: https://www.sciencedaily.com AND https://www.sciencedaily.com
[03:13:10] <upstart> ^ 03Pardon Our Interruption
[03:13:10] <upstart> ^ 03Pardon Our Interruption
[03:13:34] <Fnord666_> BTW what does ‘whereto’ do?
[03:13:39] <Fnord666_> also look for PM
[03:13:58] <Bytram> doesn't *do* anything, actually :)
[03:14:19] <Bytram> is justmy way of flagging that I'd like one of the bots to give me the title and remove any redirection
[03:14:50] <Fnord666_> I did see it resolve a redirection earlier
[03:16:18] <Bytram> yup, upstart can do that
[03:16:28] <Bytram> exec, otoh, just gets the title
[03:33:34] <Bytram> pushed out a story and am now gonna call it a night.
[03:33:36] <Bytram> sleep++
[03:33:36] <Bender> karma - sleep: 10
[03:33:44] <Bytram> have a great night everyone!
[03:34:01] <Fnord666_> Good night Bytram!
[03:34:09] <Bytram> ciao for now!

[14:50:37] <cmn32480> I was bringing home a hard to find Lego set from vacation... TSA coudln't figure out what it was in the xray machine.. so they pulled the box and actually swabbed my legos for explosives
[14:50:50] * TheMightyBuzzard laughs
[14:52:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> see, this is why you should go pick up a sack of black powder. so you can rub it all over some random things in your luggage before you head out.
[14:54:07] <mrpg> im in my december holidays.
[14:54:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> excellent. big plans this year?
[14:58:22] <mrpg> no, just at home doing homely things.

[15:03:27] <mrpg> yes. exercise, eat, clean, mope , eat more. and youtube. I'm reading Jung too. And I read the Disaster Artist about the movie the Room.

[15:36:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> heh, that's what i hear. doing the 10h drive thing myself. the TSA agents aren't usually hot enough for me to not mind them groping me.
[15:37:14] <mrpg> Question: admin-configurable minimum karma. Is this in a text file or in the GUI? per-user or sitewide?
[15:37:24] <mrpg> for the journals.
[15:38:08] <Fnord666_> Careful on the roads then. Keep an eye out for ijits
[15:38:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's part of the site admin bar.
[15:38:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> if you have a high enough security level to see VARS under CONFIG, you can change it.
[15:39:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> site-wide of course. individually wouldn't make much sense.
[15:40:07] <mrpg> the link to github shows nothign because there are no open bugs.
[15:40:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> which link?
