[01:52:57] <Bytram> takyon: cmn32480: wrt arthur... that is JR's bot. Good catch on the bad nick! Also, instead of 'writes' how about 'submitted'?
[01:53:23] <cmn32480> wha?
[01:53:35] * cmn32480 is a tiny bit majpryly lost
[01:54:03] * Bytram offers cmn32480 a random map
[01:55:01] * cmn32480 greatfully accepts...
[01:55:08] * cmn32480 turns it 90 degrees
[01:55:15] * cmn32480 turns it 90 degrees again
[01:55:25] * cmn32480 turns it 90 degrees a third time
[01:55:37] * cmn32480 sighs and blows his nose on the map
[01:56:16] <cmn32480> so... care to explain?
[01:56:31] * Bytram just here hisself... what's confuzin?
[01:56:34] <cmn32480> or do I need to read backscroll to understand?
[01:58:10] * cmn32480 read the back scroll
[01:58:20] <Bytram> scroll back about 5 hours or so to see takyon's comment
[01:59:03] <cmn32480> honetly, it'd depend on how it was subbed
[01:59:32] <cmn32480> I thought Arthur had a bunch of information above the second byline
[01:59:51] <cmn32480> and typically, we delete everything above the second byline
[01:59:58] <Bytram> all I am aware of is: ~arthur <id>
[02:00:17] <Bytram> yeah... but there's a typo in the link to his nick
[02:00:27] <Bytram> it's in the domain name, apparently
[02:00:46] <Bytram> is ntead of soylentnews it is [claimed to be] soylentness
[02:00:57] * Bytram has not personally checked it yet
[02:01:12] <cmn32480> ohhhh
[02:01:16] * Bytram just got home and needs to put some food on to cook... back in a few minutes
[02:02:13] * cmn32480 is same
[02:02:20] <cmn32480> just got back from dinner
[02:02:48] * Bytram just confirmed... here is the source to the byline on the newest live story:
[02:02:49] <Bytram> <p class="byline"><a href="https://soylentness.org/~Arthur+T+Knackerbracket" title="soylentness.org">Arthur T Knackerbracket</a> [soylentness.org] has found the <a href="https://www.fastcompany.com/40545799/microsoft-has-a-dumb-idea-to-make-people-use-its-web-browser" title="fastcompany.com">following story</a> [fastcompany.com]:</p>
[02:02:52] <exec> └─ 13Microsoft has a dumb idea to make people use its web browser
[02:03:19] <Bytram> okay.. now off to the kitchen... biab
[02:03:25] <cmn32480> 10-4
[02:03:35] * cmn32480 considers looking at arthurs code to fix it
[02:04:20] <cmn32480> ~tell janrinok arthurs byline has the link to his acct goofed. says soylentness instead of soylentnews
[02:05:24] * cmn32480 logs into the box where exec resides
[02:13:30] <Bytram> 10-4? Too much typing! Coulda just used '6' !!! ;)
[02:14:53] <cmn32480> 194 packages can be updated.
[02:14:53] <cmn32480> 82 updates are security updates.
[02:15:02] <cmn32480> I prolly ought ot log into this box more often...
[02:16:11] <Bytram> rofl
[02:17:08] * Bytram volunteers to try to pen-test it... what's the IP addy? =) j/k if you weren't sure
[02:18:17] <cmn32480>
[02:18:31] <Bytram> ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!
[02:18:36] <Bytram> Touche'
[02:18:40] <Bytram> cmn32480++
[02:18:40] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 98
[02:18:55] <Bytram> thanks, I needed that laugh!
[02:19:11] <cmn32480> you can pen test the living shit outta that address
[02:19:23] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:19:25] * cmn32480 passes bytram a bic so he can start
[02:19:44] <Bytram> unfortuantely, I'm still kinda busy working on this one:
[02:20:08] <cmn32480> well... keep it up
[02:20:08] <cmn32480> I
[02:20:10] * Bytram flicks the bic and accidentally burns up the computer room
[02:20:14] <Bytram> so sorrrrry!
[02:20:17] <cmn32480> 'm sure you'll get there eventually
[02:20:29] <cmn32480> how did you make a pen catch fire????
[02:20:35] <Bytram> dunno why I'd want to... there's no place like homne
[02:20:38] <Bytram> *home
[02:20:39] <cmn32480> that, my friend, is talent!
[02:21:12] <Bytram> America's got talent, or so the show claims
[02:27:14] <cmn32480> #smake cmn32480
[02:27:14] * MrPlow smakes cmn32480 upside the head with a bag of AC LEDs
[02:28:11] <cmn32480> if it was subbed by exec... it is an exec problem... not an arthur problem
[02:29:33] <cmn32480> ~arthur 4615a0
[02:29:40] <exec> 818 stories loaded
[02:29:40] <exec> attempting to submit story: "ACL-Sue: Rights group takes on TSA over device searches"
[02:30:11] <exec> submission successful - https://soylentnews.org
[02:30:18] <exec> 817 stories loaded
[02:31:11] <cmn32480> this is not an exec problem... looks like a typo in JR's version of arthur
[02:32:09] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:34:35] <cmn32480> exec's version of arthur subs as an AC
[02:35:07] <Bytram> Huh? how does it do that? iow, how would I invoke it?
[02:35:11] * Bytram is confused
[02:35:22] * cmn32480 welcomes bytram to the club
[02:36:20] * Bytram decides to dump slubs and try, instead, for hearts or diamonds
[02:36:43] <cmn32480> i'd dump the slubs too
[02:37:15] <Bytram> s/sl/cl/
[02:37:17] <exec> <Bytram> decides to dump clubs and try, instead, for hearts or diamonds
[02:37:26] <cmn32480> exec submits using the API
[02:37:26] <Bytram> good catch
[02:37:38] <cmn32480> so as long as TMB doesn't break it, everythign will be all good
[02:37:46] <Bytram> nod nod... ala: ~submit
[02:37:50] <cmn32480> correct
[02:38:09] <Bytram> which is separate, and distinct, from ~arthur right?
[02:38:26] * cmn32480 is reading the PHP that subs the arthur stories from the wiki and has NFI what it does
[02:39:40] <Bytram> IIRC, there is a bot that scans new entries in #rss-bot, and of those it is able to parse, adds them to the wiki page
[02:39:53] <Bytram> later, when one does ~arthur <id>
[02:40:10] <Bytram> it retrieves the previously-parsed/formatted version
[02:41:11] <cmn32480> yes
[02:41:40] <Bytram> thanks for the confirmation!
[02:42:28] <cmn32480> what I menat was I don't spreak php, and I don't know how the API works... but when I subbed a story from exec, it dind't have the second byline. so therefore, JR broke it
[02:45:05] <Bytram> ahhhhhh, now I get it! Thanks!
[02:45:26] <cmn32480> <thumbs up>
[02:45:37] <cmn32480> ok
[02:45:41] <cmn32480> time for bed
[02:45:48] <cmn32480> I'm exhausted
[02:45:53] <Bytram> speak of trhe devil.... storybot is running right this moment
[02:46:07] <Bytram> sleep well, and fast, my friend
[02:46:21] <cmn32480> every hour
[02:46:30] <Bytram> counts!
[02:46:49] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[02:46:51] * exec unjustifiably evolves a dire ear of emotions from bytram
[02:46:57] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[02:46:59] * exec romantically reticulates a staff of wasabi gummy fish for cmn32480
[02:47:22] <Bytram> I lose emotions and you gets the fish... you won
[02:48:13] * cmn32480 shares his fish with bytram
[02:48:54] * Bytram surreptitiously attached them to TMB's fishing line, and gives it a good tug
