[18:59:03] * cmn32480 give janrinok the hairy eye
[18:59:21] * janrinok gives cmn32480 a completely bald eye
[19:00:01] <cmn32480> I'd say read the back scroll.. but I guess there sin't a point in doing that is there....
[19:00:11] <janrinok> nope - I haven't got any
[19:00:26] <cmn32480> like i said!
[19:00:30] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[19:00:32] * exec whole-heartedly scissors an array of procrastination for janrinok
[19:00:37] <janrinok> I'll have to go looking in the logs tomorrow - what have I missed?
[19:00:44] <cmn32480> so the question of charon came up this morning
[19:00:53] <janrinok> sorted now I believe
[19:01:02] <cmn32480> alrighty then
[19:01:17] <cmn32480> you've already sorted that mess out have you?
[19:01:18] <janrinok> martyb, tmb, and I have exchanged emails
[19:01:23] <cmn32480> ooooo
[19:01:27] <cmn32480> hokey dokyeyt
[19:01:43] <cmn32480> hows things?
[19:01:49] <cmn32480> FIL putting on any weight?
[19:02:14] <janrinok> my in-laws leave tomorrow, FiL is somewhat heavier, more hairy and a lot happier
[19:02:31] <cmn32480> all good things!
[19:02:58] <janrinok> It will be a bit emotional tomorrow when they leave - nobody knows the long term outcomes
[19:03:23] <cmn32480> of course
[19:03:47] * cmn32480 pats JR on the back and passes a dirty hanky
[19:04:08] * janrinok blows his nose on the dirty hanky and passes it back for washing
[19:04:24] * cmn32480 takes it by the corner and shudders
[19:05:04] <janrinok> hows your tribe?
[19:05:09] <cmn32480> reasonable
[19:05:27] <cmn32480> J and I had a long talk last weekend that I think will help alleviate some of the issues on the home front
[19:05:32] <cmn32480> so taht's a plus
[19:05:43] <janrinok> best wishes for the outcome
[19:05:53] <cmn32480> I think it'll be all good
[19:06:02] <cmn32480> biggest issue was my lack of being around
[19:06:10] <cmn32480> which we are actively remedying
[19:06:19] <janrinok> understandable from both points of view
[19:06:57] <cmn32480> yes
[19:07:08] <cmn32480> and I'm rather happy about being home more too ;-)
[19:07:42] <janrinok> I'm sure that you would. We spent quite a few years being apart almost full-time. It was very difficult
[19:08:14] <cmn32480> yes it is...
[19:08:15] <janrinok> S found it stressful because the locals were shooting at me
[19:08:28] <cmn32480> I don't ahve that problem.
[19:08:31] <janrinok> I found it stressful for pretty much the same reason ...
[19:08:33] <cmn32480> it happens when I get back in the office
[19:09:08] <janrinok> I know, and having some supporting staff who can help share that burden will be a valuable gain for you
[19:09:41] <cmn32480> yes
[19:09:44] <cmn32480> very much
[19:10:00] <cmn32480> so all in all, it's been a decent week.
[19:10:09] <cmn32480> but I was in bed by 8:30pm last night
[19:10:13] <janrinok> and it's only Wednesday!
[19:10:23] <cmn32480> I know.. it'll change
[19:10:29] <janrinok> don't go into the details - I'll just use my imagination
[19:10:45] <cmn32480> lol
[19:10:53] <cmn32480> and it was 9 degrees thins morning

[19:11:19] <cmn32480> i hate you
[19:11:29] <janrinok> I think I'll go outside and sunbather
[19:11:38] <janrinok> *sunbathe
[19:11:40] <cmn32480> :-p
[19:11:50] <janrinok> ... except its a bit dark
[19:12:06] * cmn32480 pictures his thouroughly made up picture of janrinok in a speedo....
[19:12:15] * cmn32480 giggle uncontrollably
[19:12:54] <janrinok> * thinks your picture is probably more flattering than real life, nonetheless
[19:13:18] <cmn32480> nope... trust me.... it ain't
[19:13:37] <janrinok> no, trust ME, it is!
[19:13:43] <cmn32480> third person is /me
[19:14:11] <janrinok> its my birthday today, cake with candles had more flames than California ...
[19:14:20] <cmn32480> Happy Birthday!

[19:14:28] <janrinok> ty
[19:14:59] * cmn32480 tries to count the cabnd;es adn quits after getting to his toes a 3rd time
[19:16:07] <janrinok> I see that your auto-encrypted typing machine still works
[19:16:22] <cmn32480> quite well, don't you think?
[19:16:28] <cmn32480> I made upgrades...
[19:16:32] <janrinok> you should patent it
[19:16:45] <cmn32480> that means I'd have to give up the secret
[19:16:49] <janrinok> I'd buy one if only to work out what you are saying
[19:17:03] <cmn32480> I'm quite the enigma.. eh?
[19:17:11] <janrinok> well done
[19:17:45] * cmn32480 notes that janrinok is a little too familiar with that joke... and wonders if that was the first crypto gear he used
[19:18:04] <janrinok> not the first, but I got to it eventually
[19:18:37] <cmn32480> lol
[19:20:40] * cmn32480 needs to warm up
[19:21:13] <janrinok> you could always go and play with the fork lift again - that kept me warm and laughing for quite a while
[19:21:26] <cmn32480> nope
[19:21:37] <cmn32480> I could drive it out there all day... damn ground is frozen solid
[19:22:18] <janrinok> yeah, in theory, but we both know you would probably crash it, drive through the fence, or just break it
[19:22:38] <cmn32480> don't be jealous!
[19:24:36] <janrinok> true
[19:45:05] <janrinok> time to go already

[20:59:21] <Bytram> is this Corp. speak or what?
[20:59:25] <Bytram> "Intel and other technology companies have been made aware of new security research describing software analysis methods that, when used for malicious purposes, have the potential to improperly gather sensitive data from computing devices that are operating as designed. Intel believes these exploits do not have the potential to corrupt, modify or delete data.
[20:59:25] <Bytram> Recent reports that these exploits are caused by a “bug” or a “flaw” and are unique to Intel products are incorrect. Based on the analysis to date, many types of computing devices — with many different vendors’ processors and operating systems — are susceptible to these exploits.
