[01:18:53] * Bytram apologizes for not noticing when the weekend started and dropped a few stories with tighter spacing than needed
[01:24:15] <Fnord666_> Not to worry. I originally did too then went back and respaced mine
[01:27:54] <Bytram> yeah, but I noticed mine well after they already went live. :(
[01:30:14] <Bytram> What if we added a column, "Δt", just to the left of the date column in the Story List page which gave, in minutes, how much time existing between the scheduled stories?
[01:30:35] <Bytram> well, that would not work too well with text-based browsers, now would it?
[01:30:52] <Bytram> ok, "dt"? "DeltaT", ???
[01:31:11] <chromas> Can text browsers run the js needed for the admin pages?
[01:31:35] <Fnord666_> interval? spacing?
[01:32:07] <Bytram> dTime?
[01:32:55] <Fnord666_> any of the above work for me
[01:33:26] <Bytram> anyway, I'm sure it would lead to other requests down the line, but I would suggest that *any* changes to *any* part of a story, should be restricted to the story editing page. Period. As it is, there is already a race condition if two editors try to edit the same story at the same time... there's no need making the situation any worse!
[01:33:30] <Fnord666_> and I like the idea
[01:34:15] <Bytram> maybe 'TTNS' == Time To Next Story
[01:34:16] <Fnord666_> you and I have run into that race condition before
[01:34:20] <Bytram> nod nod
[01:34:39] <Fnord666_> TBS = Time Between Stories?
[01:35:13] <Bytram> generally, when I go to edit a story and I see that someone else is already in it (there's a honking big, bold-text message saying your story is xx% similar to a story being edited by $foo
[01:35:29] <Bytram> Turner Broad.casting Services
[01:35:31] <Bytram> ;)
[01:35:48] <Fnord666_> Hello Atlanta
[01:36:11] <Bytram> when I see the possibility of a conflict, I tend to back out immediately, and check in on IRC to see if I can raise them here... and straighten out what is going on.
[01:37:07] <Bytram> what would help, immensely, is I should be able to toggle something to say, in effect, "I was just *looking* at a story (or I am done editing as story) and I am no longer working on anything atm -- IOW "All Clear!"
[01:37:25] <Fnord666_> That would be helpful.
[01:37:29] <chromas> A mutex switch

[01:38:40] <chromas> Oh, I ruined it now
[01:38:45] <Bytram> lol!!!!!!!
[01:39:00] <Bytram> oh, and for good measure:
[01:39:02] <Bytram> colds--
[01:39:03] <Bender> karma - colds: -1
[01:39:10] <Bytram> tissues++
[01:39:10] <Bender> karma - tissues: 1

[01:39:14] <Bender> karma - sleep: 11
[01:39:28] <Fnord666_> bourbon++
[01:39:28] <Bender> karma - bourbon: 1
[01:40:26] * Bytram just had a huge bowl of chili with rice, with a few really good shakes of chili powder added for good measure in an attempt to clear out his sinuses for good... not quite working
[01:40:50] <Bytram> and that follows two quarts of *very* respectably spicy hot-and-sour soup over the past two nights.
[01:40:58] <Bytram> 1 qt each
[01:41:08] <Fnord666_> hmmmm
[01:41:11] <Bytram> maybe a good night's sleep can help do the trick?
[01:41:22] <Fnord666_> couldn’t hurt
[01:41:29] <Bytram> staying up with you lot does not seem to be helping. ;)
[01:41:43] <Bytram> though it is quite entertaining
[01:41:49] <Bytram> oh

[01:43:47] * Fnord666_ bows humbly
[01:43:54] <Bytram> I'll put in for a pay increase for the new year... I'm thinking at least 10-15%!
