[02:39:19] <Bytram> truth be told, the customers in very large part are what make the rest of it bearable
[02:39:33] <cmn32480> often that is the case
[02:39:40] <Bytram> of course, there's one of THOSE customers every great while, but those are the exception, thankfully

[16:27:17] <Bytram> chromas: fyngyrz: are either of you around? Subbed a story about next SpaceX launch... scheduled window opens in less than 4 hours (@ 20:12 UTC). Any chance someone can push that out?
[16:27:39] * chromas peek()s
[16:27:52] <Bytram> sorry for the late notice, I forgot and was just reminded of it a short while ago
[16:27:55] <Bytram> mare see!
[16:28:42] <chromas> When should it go out?
[16:29:03] <Bytram> could slot it in @ 13:12 and say the launch is scheduled for 3 hours from now. +) I'll move the story currently scheduled for 13:42 to later
[16:29:18] <Bytram> how does that sound?
[16:29:33] <chromas> a'ight
[16:29:34] <Bytram> btw, much obliged for the quick response!
[16:29:37] <Bytram> teamwork++
[16:29:37] <Bender> karma - teamwork: 167
[16:29:40] <chromas> Do people still say "a'ight"?
[16:29:54] * chromas culturally appropriates
[16:29:57] <Bytram> I'm a people and am not sure what that word is.
[16:29:58] <Bytram> ;)
[16:30:15] <Bytram> sounds like something that crocodile dundee would say?
[16:32:14] <chromas> Ah, thanks for the dept. I couldn't think of one, then I saw it was already there
[16:32:45] <Bytram> lol... can't remember what I put in there
[16:33:17] <Bytram> whoops I gave the time in the wrong time zone... will second it now and fix
[16:33:20] <chromas> Is 13:12 the correct time slot? We're past that one
[16:33:24] <chromas> Ah
[16:33:29] <chromas> I undisplayed it though
[16:33:45] <Bytram> my bad

[16:33:57] <Bytram> are you still in the story?
[16:34:17] <Bytram> chromas: ^^^
[16:39:03] <chromas> I'm not
[16:39:22] <chromas> I toggled display then went to put away dishes
[16:39:39] <chromas> Thought you were already in so I didn't say
[16:43:43] <Bytram> np...
[16:43:51] <Bytram> things were happening pretty fast,
[16:44:02] <Bytram> saw it was non-displazy as you mentioned, so no rush, now
[16:44:12] <Bytram> and wanted to make sure we didn't stomp on each other.
[16:44:20] <Bytram> I'll finish making changes, then
[16:47:14] <Bytram> doh!
[16:47:26] <Bytram> saved changes, but forgot to tick the Display box...
[16:47:34] <Bytram> should be good now
[16:47:41] <Bytram> chromas: many many thanks for the quick work!
[16:48:05] * Bytram goes to relocate subsequent story to better spacing
[16:48:42] <Bytram> done
[16:49:35] <chromas> Well, you did all the work, but feel free to heap on the credit ;)
[16:50:31] <Bytram> well, I do very much try to avoid pushing out my own story... unless circumstances require it... like the meta site reboot stories
