[01:13:08] <Bytram> Feliz Navidad!
[01:14:20] <mrpg> Feliz navidad to you too. Plans for tonight?
[01:15:06] <Bytram> nothing much; had a very late night at work yesterday and a quite full one today, too...
[01:15:41] <Bytram> plan to re-space the story queue to give us some leeway and maybe putz about a bit online and then early to bed. You?
[01:16:15] <mrpg> Maybe a movie, maybe cereal later, some youtube, nothing else.
[01:16:47] <Bytram> a quiet night for you, too, then.

[01:17:10] <exec> <Bytram> movie... going out to the theater/cinema? Or at home?
[01:17:33] <mrpg> At home
[01:17:48] <Bytram> nod nod
[01:17:59] <Bytram> any ideas of what you'll watch?
[01:18:32] <mrpg> I dont have the slightest idea :-) everything bores me.
[01:21:00] <mrpg> I'll do 50 Years Ago, 'Earthrise' Inspired the Environmental Movement
[01:21:22] <Bytram> a video sounds nice... I almost never have a ~2 hour block of time I can just sit back and watch something for fun... too much else that has my attention!
[01:21:38] * Bytram has at least a half-dozen DVDs he bought and still hasn't watched.
[01:38:00] <mrpg> I have some movies, I don't know. Ok, I'll watch pacific rim 2.
[01:38:50] <mrpg> If I don't like it, I have my trusrty forward button.
[01:39:23] <mrpg> s/trusrty/trusty/
[01:39:24] <exec> <mrpg> If I don't like it, I have my trusty forward button.
[01:40:12] <Bytram> fast-forward, too.
[01:40:30] <mrpg> 50 years ready
[01:40:33] * Bytram is almost prepped to reschedule stories to weekend spacing
[01:40:55] <Bytram> #g earthrise
[01:40:56] <MrPlow> https://en.wikipedia.org - "Earthrise is a photograph of Earth and some of the Moon's surface that was taken from lunar orbit by astronaut Bill Anders on December 24, 1968, during theĀ ..."
[01:40:57] <mrpg> I did, 2 hours. Should I change it?
[01:41:15] <Bytram> oh? hold on a sec (or two =)
[01:41:28] <mrpg> THis day feels like saturday :-)
[01:42:43] <Bytram> hold on for a pasting
[01:42:54] <mrpg> hm pasta bene
[01:43:02] <Bytram> not sure how the spacing will work...

[01:43:24] <Bytram> those are the top dozen stories in the queue and how many minutes between each one
[01:43:28] <Bytram> =)
[01:43:35] <Bytram> automation++
[01:43:35] <Bender> karma - automation: 3
[01:44:31] <mrpg> Is that a script that changes the dates on the site?
[01:44:39] <mrpg> like, automagically?
[01:44:57] <mrpg> Or a perl script in your machine?
[01:45:28] <mrpg> Talking about movies, I saw Jhonny English III, it was fine.
[01:45:52] <Bytram> local script; downloads the story list page, does some calculations, and displays what you see above
[01:47:27] <Bytram> one more to prep
[01:49:17] <mrpg> MY pc doesnt recognize my android phone, I cant transfer files, grrr.
[01:49:32] <fyngyrz> I can offer a solution to that
[01:49:34] <Bytram> USB? Wi-Fi?
[01:49:44] <mrpg> USB
[01:49:59] <fyngyrz> Go to the Google app store, and search up wifi file explorer pro
[01:50:10] <Bytram> can you xfer using a [micro] sdcard?
[01:50:11] <fyngyrz> it's AWESOME
[01:50:35] <mrpg> No microSD reader on the pc.
[01:50:46] <fyngyrz> what it does, is offers up an IP on your LAN, which has a full bore file explorer that ppears at the web address it gives you.
[01:51:00] <Bytram> story release times prepped; I now have 9 stories with updated times to save; please hold on while I do so.
[01:51:03] <fyngyrz> I use it to transfer files all the time
[01:51:19] <Bytram> fyngyrz++ Nice Christmas present!
[01:51:19] <Bender> karma - fyngyrz: 9
[01:51:21] <mrpg> Nice, I think I used one like that years ago on my LG.
[01:51:30] <mrpg> No, it was FTP.
[01:51:45] <Bytram> wish me luck!
[01:51:58] <mrpg> luck
[01:52:01] <fyngyrz> aye

[01:54:23] <Bytram> invoking correct maneuvers, captain.

[02:01:40] <mrpg> I can't connect to the IRC but thru the web. How come?
[02:02:10] <mrpg> I tried thunderbird and pidgin. wnidows and linux. I get a "disconnected from server". My ip is not in the blocklist.
[02:03:15] <Bytram> Strange; I have no idea why thqat would be
[02:03:33] * Bytram is trying to sort out a misscheduled story or two...

[02:11:35] <mrpg> #g white hole
[02:11:36] <MrPlow> https://en.wikipedia.org - "In general relativity, a white hole is a hypothetical region of spacetime which cannot be entered from the outside, although matter and light can escape from it."
[02:12:15] <mrpg> Sure, white privilege!
[02:12:29] <Bytram> is anyone else rescheduling stories?? If you are, please don't.
[02:13:30] * Bytram channels Bullwinkle the Moose and says: This time for sure!!!
[02:15:18] <Bytram> ahhh, /me had had a major brain fart...

[02:19:40] <Bytram> you got it.
[02:19:58] <mrpg> Good, I'm off to try and watch the movie. If it is boring I'll see another boring one.
