[01:05:48] <Fnord666> I know. I'm closing in on cmn32480
[01:05:57] <Fnord666> relatively speaking ...
[01:06:27] <Fnord666> who is just 10 stories off of 3000!
[01:07:14] <Bytram> yup... holding steady, that one is.
[01:08:37] <Fnord666> And takyon just broke 1000 himself!
[01:09:29] <Bytram> yup! And that is on top of all the stories he's submitted, too...
[01:09:31] <Fnord666> Although technically he's really "edited" a lot more than that, given that his submissions are almost always publication ready.
[01:09:42] <Fnord666> right
[01:10:00] <Bytram> 'zactly!
[01:10:45] <Fnord666> chromas I wanted to thank you also for all of the hard work you've been putting in. Huzzah!

[01:11:43] <chromas> I'll catch up to you guys too, when life takes over
[01:11:45] * chromas plots
[01:12:08] * Bytram steals the graph paper
[01:12:22] <Bytram> "takyon has 4421 submissions."
[01:12:25] * Fnord666 takes his calculator
[01:12:34] * chromas rolls in some card stock; the plot thickens
[01:13:20] * Fnord666 switches the ink to black and the plot gets darker
[01:13:21] * Bytram burns the card stock and plants some seeds, the plot flowers into bloom
[01:14:52] * Fnord666 hacks the tractor's GPS, it veers left, and the plot takes a sinister turn
[01:16:05] * Bytram hurriedly plows up a berm of earth causing the tractor to veer back on course causing the plot to resume its appointed course

[01:40:13] <chromas> It's written in D and the command prefix is a taco
[01:40:36] <Fnord666> nice!
[01:40:58] * Bytram is pretty nackered and gonna call it an early night... am on vacation this week and really need to try to catch up on my sleep.
[01:41:08] <Bytram> very nice, indeed
[01:41:11] <Fnord666> I need to add unicode into HexChat I guess

[01:42:04] <Fnord666> pleasant dreams
[01:42:20] <Bytram> thanks! And a good night to all of you, as well!
[01:46:04] <Fnord666> chromas how do you like D? What advantages does it provide?
[01:47:57] <chromas> I still haven't fully grasped templates yet and I still gotta dig through stdlib docs all the time because, for example, a function for manipulating a string might be in the String unit, or Array, or Algorithm, or...
[01:48:15] <chromas> I like it because it works a lot like a better c++. I'm not an expert on languages though.
[01:48:41] <chromas> Before D, I was using Pascal/Delphi, so there's that
[01:48:53] * chromas might still have the pascal bot code somewhere
[01:49:35] <Fnord666> =)

[16:52:09] <Bytram> Fnord666: Thanks a bunch for pushing out so many stories... FYI I rescheduled so as to resume weekday spacing after Sunday midnight UTC. No biggy, just an FYI. JR had privately suggested that we have weekend spacing strictly on SAT/SUN UTC, and I prolly forgot to pass the word along. My bad!
