[01:00:04] <Bytram> =)
[01:00:22] <Bytram> I was at a mtg earlier, but saw the story queue was running dry...
[01:00:32] <Bytram> was able to push out a story using my mobile phone.
[01:00:48] <Bytram> not easy, but was able to buy some time until I got home
[01:01:29] <Bytram> you are fast approaching your 600th story published! https://soylentnews.org

[01:03:50] <mrpg> it's for your own good, that thing is contagious.
[01:04:38] <mrpg> it loaded ok for me
[01:06:29] * Bytram *may* have accidentally clicked on something... loads fine, now
[01:07:09] <Bytram> oh, and it's a story from "The Telegraph"
[01:07:35] <mrpg> Is it me or nobody uses the term free software anymore? all the news say open source.
[01:08:25] <Bytram> if you own the words used, you can control the discussion...
[01:08:44] <Bytram> just beacuse one can *look* at the source, does not mean one is free to do anything with it. :(
[01:09:48] <Bytram> I'll pass on the romaine lettuce story. It was just a revised total of illnesses and deaths, along with symptoms and how to avoid getting it
