[00:04:32] <Bytram> ahh
[00:05:37] <chromas> Tim Burton made a Batman movie and at least 135 Johnny Depp movies
[00:05:52] <Bytram> Really? That few?
[00:08:58] <chromas> this year
[00:09:19] <mrpg> Vincet is read by Vincent Price. It is so good.
[00:09:22] <mrpg> Nevermore.
[00:09:22] <Bytram> Touche'!!
[00:09:36] <Bytram> that is being too poe-light

[00:10:09] <upstart> https://www.poetryfoundation.org - The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe | Poetry Foundation
[00:10:38] <mrpg> While at Disney in 1982, Burton made his first short, Vincent, a six-minute black-and-white stop motion film based on a poem written by the filmmaker, and depicting a young boy who fantasizes that he is his hero Vincent Price, with Price himself providing narration.
[00:11:02] <Bytram> I did not know that! Kewel!!
[00:11:14] <mrpg> I gotta see this: ... Hansel and Gretel, a Japanese-themed adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale ... which climaxes in a kung fu fight between Hansel and Gretel and the witch.
[00:11:25] <mrpg> Tim burton's too.

[00:19:35] <mrpg> I'll try, thanks.
[00:20:10] <mrpg> Maybe I'll get to 888 and call it quits :-) hahaha
[00:20:39] <Bytram> It's not a race, but I find it a bit of fun to "gamify" things.
[00:21:02] <Bytram> that said, it was a sad day when my total passed JRs.
[00:21:34] <Bytram> it was not so much a sign that i had done well as a sign that JR had taken that ill. :(
[00:22:32] <chromas> You're passing everybody. Even NCommander on the fitescoreboard
[00:35:42] * Bytram forgot about that one

[10:39:10] <Bytram> chromas: it was a copy/paste from a web site. Thanks for catching that and fixing it!
[10:39:11] <Bytram> ~blame
[10:39:13] * exec points at Bytram
[10:39:51] <chromas> Well you didn't know. It's a limitation of the dept field
[10:40:07] * chromas figured it all out with poo glyphs a while back
[10:41:08] <Bytram> one place I didn't test with the Unicode support roll-out. :(
[10:41:50] <Bytram> There's an amazingly large number of places on the site where user input can go in and appear somewhere.
[10:42:05] <chromas> journal titles do weir things too
[10:42:57] <chromas> rDT puts xml entities for emojis in some journal titles. They show up in the sidebar, but on the actual journal, it shows the entities
[10:42:59] <Bytram> Then there was the testing for what happens when several adjacent unicode chars get themselves treated as a single, different char.
[10:43:22] <Bytram> nodnod... I've seen that. Journals were not high on my priority list at the time.
[10:43:32] <Bytram> was more concerned with basic story text and comments.
[10:43:42] * chromas wonders if story titles work the same way
[10:43:52] * Bytram chuckles
[10:44:01] <Bytram> play with it on dev, k?
[10:48:09] <Bytram> =)
[10:48:13] <Bytram> btw, I like your thinking!!
[10:48:17] <Bytram> chromas++
[10:48:17] <chromas> xml entity works in the stories page. the others are cached so I'll have to wait and see
[10:48:17] <Bender> karma - chromas: 50
[10:48:35] <chromas> doing a direct unicode emoji gets converted to ? though
[10:48:59] <chromas> Like the dept field, it only converts on save, not on preview
[10:49:43] <chromas> That makes doing those glyphs tricky, because if you use the entity, the next preview will convert it to the actual glyph (also when another editor seconds it)
[10:56:25] <Bytram> yep, have seen that happen with entities like "&nbsp;" when you have it correct in the editor, need to just hit save. o/w a preview converts it to an actual space. :(
[11:00:11] * chromas usually deletes those from the articles
[11:01:20] <Bytram> in the story source, yes. I'm talking about the dept line... used it once to put an anchor in there. Didn't survive editing afterwards, IIRC. <a&nbsp;href="...">
[11:02:32] <Bytram> .

[11:04:10] <chromas> Yeah, I put in a braille pattern blank. it's the only spacer that doesn't get converted
[11:04:45] <Bytram> nod nod, but then it would not work as a link.
[11:05:00] <chromas> U+1680, &#5760;
[11:05:13] <chromas> True, but would a non-breaking space work there anyway?
[11:05:49] <chromas> I think we just need an option to turn off the space nazi
[11:10:13] <Bytram> dang!
[11:10:44] <Bytram> what is the mailing list for us... I thought it was editorial@soylentnews.org but that just bounced on me.
