[19:38:05] <exec> └─ 13Library of Congress stops full-Twitter archiving at 2017's end - CNET
[19:39:12] <cmn32480> Thank god... Twitter shoudl be allowed to die in its own horrible troll like way without being preserved for posterity
[19:40:30] <Bytram> 'cept the commander in chief's tweets are considered actual public statements by the president and subject to records retention act
[19:43:20] <cmn32480> yes... but archiving ALL of twitter? ewwww... talk about gathering the worst of the worst
[19:46:29] <Bytram> well, o/w, twitter would have to do their *own* backups!
[19:47:15] <cmn32480> preferably not...
[19:47:40] <Bytram> Oh my... where DID those old tweets go? Ooops!
[19:47:42] <cmn32480> I keep hoping that twitter will have a massive data center cascade crash adn it will be lost to the annals of human history
[19:48:55] <Bytram> can't say that I follow it at all, though I there was a performer I once checked in on occasionally, but they stopped posting. That leaves the possibility of my keeping an eye out on Musk, but haven't taken that plunge.
[19:49:34] <cmn32480> you aren't missing anything.
[19:49:45] <cmn32480> twitter is a cesspool
[19:50:17] <cmn32480> the root of twitter is twit not tweet, and it accurately describes about 99% of the people who post there
[19:50:20] <Bytram> AFAIK, SN is my only social media platform
[19:51:42] * Bytram does not FB, tweet, instagram, (though I do occasionally look at one 'channel' there), and doesn't know what else is out there.
[19:53:30] * cmn32480 wishes he didn't facebook
[19:53:42] <cmn32480> but I don't twit or instagram or pinterest or any of the others
[19:53:48] <cmn32480> adn I very bare;y SN anymore either
[19:56:01] <Bytram> sadly, I'm too busy posting stories and doing QA to have much time left over to actually post many comments
[19:56:45] <Bytram> that, and working nearly 20 hours/week more than usual for about the past month may have had something to do with it
[19:57:01] <cmn32480> I hope you is getting OT for that
[19:57:08] <Bytram> yuppers!
[19:57:10] <Bytram> =)
[19:57:15] <cmn32480> I've just been running all over the country for the last 6 months
[19:57:28] <cmn32480> I'm ending the year with 78 nights out
[19:57:36] <Bytram> oi.
[19:58:51] <Bytram> caught up with me, though. Made it to work at 0600 today, but my stomach was doing somersaults and I was feeling achy, so bugged out a few hours later. Went immedaitely to bed and slept another couple hours... just had a bite to eat and am about to hit the sack again.
[19:59:10] <cmn32480> get some rest
[19:59:25] <cmn32480> it'll catch you up right quick (as you have found)
[19:59:31] <cmn32480> exhausted is no fun
[19:59:40] <cmn32480> and it makes you totally non functional
[20:00:34] <Bytram> huh?
[20:00:37] <Bytram> ;)
[20:00:43] <cmn32480> 'zactly
[20:01:22] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[20:01:24] * exec accidentally inserts a sole datagram of nerf darts into bytram
[20:01:25] * Bytram glances at the story queue
[20:01:48] <Bytram> looks like we are in good enough shape for now -- 7 strories pending going out
[20:01:53] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[20:01:55] * exec hideously shoves an animated gif of virtual private nipples in cmn32480
[20:02:03] <Bytram> you won
[20:02:06] <Bytram> and I'm done
[20:02:12] <cmn32480> get some rest
[20:02:14] <Bytram> oh, doh!
[20:02:14] <cmn32480> you need ti
[20:02:21] <Bytram> How was YOUR xmas?
[20:02:53] <cmn32480> relatively quiet
[20:03:01] <Bytram> sounds *wonderful* !!
[20:03:10] <cmn32480> spent the day in my jammies with no where to go and all day to get there
[20:03:17] <cmn32480> how 'bout you?
[20:03:19] <Bytram> yays!
[20:03:25] <cmn32480> I know you were headed out to see family
[20:04:01] <Bytram> went to sib's for xmas dinner, but had to navigate two unplowed streets which had at least 8" of snow and just a pair of tire tracks in the middle.
[20:04:30] <Bytram> somehow got there in one place w/o getting hung up (was pretty much all downhill) and when I arrived, i told 'em; I'm staying here until they plow
[20:04:44] <cmn32480> sounds like a viable plan
[20:05:43] <Bytram> plow arrived just before we exchanged gifts, and I was back on my way home. Only, I dunno, 10 miles away, so not bad at all.
[20:05:51] <cmn32480> oh
[20:05:59] <cmn32480> so you could have walked but were feeling lazy...
[20:06:30] <Bytram> weren't you paying attention? I was tired! =)
[20:06:44] <cmn32480> pffttt.
[20:06:54] <cmn32480> two good legs and you were whining about being tired.....
[20:07:10] * Bytram tucks his tail between his legs
[20:07:19] <cmn32480> nooo
[20:07:21] <Bytram> ;)
[20:07:28] <cmn32480> don't tuck.. use the tail to erase your foot prints.
[20:07:34] <Bytram> Brilliant!
[20:07:34] <cmn32480> no need to let people follow you!
[20:07:42] * Bytram gots to remember that one!
[20:07:49] <Bytram> and, with that, I'm back to slumberland
[20:07:56] <Bytram> so nice to 'see' ya!!!
[20:07:59] <cmn32480> bueans nachos!
