[03:00:12] <mrpg> hi
[03:00:55] <mrpg> bytram: there are two (2) politics stories for tomorrow, a 10 hours apart.
[03:02:38] <mrpg> I was studying math and now I have to read these interesting stories about the airplane's engine that exploded and the new voting system.

[03:03:00] <MrPlow> https://en.wikipedia.org - "The cowl is an item of clothing consisting of a long, hooded garment with wide sleeves. Originally it may have referred simply to the hooded portion of a cloak. In contemporary usage, however, it is distinguished from a cloak or cape (cappa) by the fact that it refers to an entire closed garment. Today it is worn primarily by ..."

[03:03:09] <MrPlow> https://en.wikipedia.org - "A cowling is the covering of a vehicle's engine, most often found on automobiles and aircraft. A cowling may be used: for drag reduction; for engine cooling by directing airflow; as an air intake for jet engines; for decorative purposes. Examples in aviation include the NACA cowling and Townend ring."

[03:08:02] * Bytram just downloaded the SpaceX launch of TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) and is gonna be busy watching it for a while
[03:09:17] <mrpg> 1:32 hours have fun.
[03:09:47] <mrpg> I'll go see it too.
[03:09:48] <mrpg> This ranked voting system seems good.

[03:20:19] <chromas> They did two launches today?
[03:21:03] <chromas> Oh, the time is ET
[03:21:08] * chromas is PT
[03:21:32] * Bytram chuckles
[03:21:52] * Bytram was working when TESS launched... is watching the recording
[03:22:37] <chromas> I thought the launch was a lot earlier in the day than it was
[03:22:58] <chromas> So when I clicked an article saying "evening" I thought there must be another
[03:25:17] <Bytram> BTW: NET June 13Falcon Heavy • STP-2
[03:25:36] <Bytram> TESS: Launch time: 2251 GMT (6:51 p.m. EDT)
[03:40:46] <Bytram> well, way past bedtime for me.
[03:40:51] <Bytram> have a great night everyone!
[12:31:54] <fyngyrz> terms of service done
[12:32:15] <fyngyrz> oh hey, someone else is in there too - fnoord
[12:41:00] <Bytram> Fnord666: fyngyrz: You *both* have the same story scheduled, albeit at slightly different times "Terms of Service; Didn't Read"
[12:41:23] <Bytram> one at 16:29 and once at 16:36
[12:41:37] <Bytram> you want for me to push out a copy, too? ;)
[12:42:12] <fyngyrz> yeah... it wasn't there, I edited it, saved it, and there it was. I did more editing... but I am dithering about un-displaying someone else's work even so
[12:42:19] <Bytram> Fnord666 16m / Terms of Service; Didn't Read
[12:42:19] <Bytram> fyngyrz 9m / Terms of Service; Didn't Read
[12:42:27] <Bytram> ^^^ from the bottom of the page...
[12:42:35] <Bytram> looks like Fnord666 had it first
[12:44:48] <fyngyrz> well, pick one, I guess.
[12:45:18] <Bytram> given that it looks like Fnord666 had accessed the story first, I would lean toward his story being the one that goeson the main page
[12:45:32] <fyngyrz> it needs more editing then
[12:45:40] <Bytram> ahhhh
[12:46:00] * Bytram has not read the contents... only seen the matching titles
[12:46:34] <Bytram> hold on...
[12:47:01] <fyngyrz> okay, done
[12:47:18] <Bytram> hmmm, they look identical to me.
[12:47:27] <fyngyrz> They are now. :)

[12:48:13] <fyngyrz> that very thing
[12:48:36] <Bytram> indubitably
[12:49:01] * Bytram thinks that may have been the very first time he actually ever *used* that word
[12:49:21] * Bytram notes sometimes one can learn the most interesting things from cartoons
[12:49:31] <fyngyrz> oh, indubitably
[12:49:57] <Bytram> two shay'
[12:50:07] <fyngyrz> used to be a good way to get introduced to classical music, too... before the dark times... before the stick figures
[12:50:08] <Bytram> hmm
[12:50:18] <Bytram> to shay, or not to shay?
[12:50:42] <fyngyrz> I prefer a small conventional steam engine. Shays are so radical.
[12:51:25] * Bytram was prolly about 30 when he discovered that bug bunny's "Barber of Seville" was a cartoon set to a classical music piece, and not first a cartoon for which that was incidental music created for it.

[12:56:52] <Bytram> might want to add a note to the non-display story explaining why it is still there?
[13:02:38] <fyngyrz> hey, what does +hardware mean in a story? Does that do something?
[13:02:55] <fyngyrz> put it in a department, etc.
[13:02:58] <fyngyrz> ?
[13:03:28] <Bytram> it is a suggestion by the submitter to use the editing controls to use, not just the apparently selected topic, but to add in (+) the hardware topic, too.

[13:07:56] <Bytram> lemme guess... does fungus have an alter-ego called... spore?

[13:09:43] <fyngyrz> "fungus" is a not too subtle reference to the fact that I layered my macro language on top of an existing robot framework.
