[02:38:28] <Bytram> whelp.
[02:39:34] <Bytram> I popped in, ostensibly to fill the nearly-empty story queue, got caught up with chromas's question about finding startup programs, and then found that both chromas and mrpg had been hard at work.
[02:39:45] <Bytram> thanks guys!
[02:39:51] <Bytram> think I'm going to go to bed'
[02:39:59] <Bytram> have a great night everyone!!!!!

[09:36:22] <chromas> Make it complimicated
[09:36:42] <Bytram> or, more easily, I could just program the bits on the disk using a magnetized pin, right?

[18:42:03] <takyon> you know caching prevents edits from being seen for a few minutes
[18:42:09] <takyon> like DUH
[18:42:39] <Bytram> curious... why the <spoiler> ??
[18:42:47] <takyon> the stuff you quoted is huge
[18:42:53] <takyon> and you are not one of the 3 user submitters
[18:42:56] <takyon> so I spoilered it
[18:42:58] <Bytram> makes the quoted text's background doubly dark
[18:43:08] <takyon> depends on your theme I reckon
[18:43:13] <Bytram> okay
[18:43:29] <Bytram> um,,, I'll yank the blockquote tags from within it, then
[18:43:35] <takyon> sure
[18:43:51] <takyon> in other news I fixed some extremely broken links that were up there, added Digital Liberty, and added those other 2 subs
[18:44:14] <takyon> I have spelled out that the El Reg article was written by Andrew Orlowski because he is infamous for his anti-Google views
[18:45:51] <Bytram> I wasn't aware, so appreciate the call out
[18:51:00] <takyon> how are we looking bytram
[18:51:06] <takyon> I'd like to make a final edit
[18:51:21] <Bytram> getting there

[18:56:15] <takyon> finally, I've moved the following stories out more to give this one more breathing room. since there is a lot to discuss
[18:57:18] * Bytram is sorely tempted to reply to every spam message from "Jimmy" for photo editing... looks like he scraped (or got access to a scrape of) all group lists for the site... dev at soylentsnews, as well as style, suggestions, and art lists, too.
