[00:00:03] <FatPhil> I might hit a pub now then
[00:00:06] <xlefay> So stuff, if something's up, e.g. something broke, find someone who can fix it, no need to involve me, k? :)
[00:00:13] <xlefay> j/k, just highlight me! ;)
[00:00:17] <FatPhil> .deop
[00:00:17] -!- mode/#staff [-o FatPhil] by BaconTree
[00:00:30] <LaminatorX> I could take it some later tonight. The headliner has their own sound guy, so I'm getting paid to chill at a concert after the opener. :)
[00:00:57] <FatPhil> Someone who can keep calm and delegate is probably the ideal commander.
[00:01:01] <xlefay> FatPhil: haha to get one of them wormwood-flavoured beer?
[00:01:10] <FatPhil> damn right.
[00:01:12] <xlefay> LaminatorX: awesome ;)
[00:01:36] <xlefay> haha FatPhil enjoy!
[00:02:08] <xlefay> And thanks again for the nerdrpg work you did! :)
[00:02:22] <FatPhil> you can measure how good the beer is if Insect_Overlord lets me IRC from her phone in the pub!
[00:02:27] <xlefay> :O
[00:02:35] <kobach> lololol
[00:03:09] <xlefay> You know I'm seriously considering just changing to beerrpg someday and just let it run for a while lol
[00:03:23] <LaminatorX> Oh hey, the topic still says I'm in command.
[00:03:23] <kobach> oh my
[00:03:31] <kobach> yea fix it
[00:03:36] <kobach> LaminatorX: take command
[00:03:37] <kobach> :p
[00:03:49] xlefay changed topic of #staff to: To everyone that doesn't have a voice or operator status in this channel: your messages will be forwarded to the channel ops (if there are none, feel free to PM an active user in the channel). | xlefay is in command. (this is not a joke!)
[00:04:00] <xlefay> just in case.
[00:17:34] <FatPhil> xlefay: idlebeer is running on IRCnet
[00:17:50] <FatPhil> yeah - I stole her phoine
[00:17:54] <xlefay> rofl!
[00:18:45] <FatPhil> she thinks I'm rating a beer...
[00:19:08] <xlefay> hahaha :P
[00:19:16] <xlefay> you have a bnc or what?
[00:21:11] <FatPhil> sshing home, screen
[00:21:15] <xlefay> aaah :P
[00:21:17] <xlefay> nice
[00:22:27] <FatPhil> i bought the wrong beer :-I
[00:23:07] <FatPhil> damn the Insect Overlord wants the phone back :-(
[00:23:38] <kobach> rofl
[00:23:40] <kobach> rofl
[00:23:41] <kobach> rofl

[00:33:17] -!- LaminatorX has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
[00:44:27] <stderr> 50 new mails... And I still got some from last week and earlier this week I haven't read... WILL IT EVER STOP?!
[00:44:40] <xlefay> Unfortunately, no, no it won't.
[00:45:02] <xlefay> (least not till you reject them by default.. but that may risk pissing people off)
[00:46:17] <stderr> Pissing people off haven't stopped me before... :-)
[00:46:35] <xlefay> me neither, so do it I'd say!;)
[00:46:52] <stderr> If they got any complains they can always send me an email at blackhole@stderr.dk
[00:47:04] <xlefay> LOL
[00:47:10] <mattie_p> oh, are you matt_?
[00:47:19] <mattie_p> who's in charge right now?
[00:47:36] * xlefay points at the topic.
[00:47:45] <mattie_p> dammit, we're in trouble
[00:47:46] <stderr> mattie_p: No, matt_ is matt_...
[00:47:46] <xlefay> it does say, it's not a joke! rofl
[00:48:03] <mattie_p> matt_ == matt_ ?
[00:48:14] <mattie_p> nah, it'll be fine
[00:48:16] <xlefay> That's a very good deduction right there
[00:48:29] <mattie_p> old school reference, maybe over your head?
[00:48:30] <xlefay> what's up mattie_p?
[00:48:36] <stderr> True... Unless matt_ is a volatile, then it's a little bit more tricky to answer that question...
[00:48:48] <mattie_p> nothing, just doing some stuff around the house today
[00:49:10] <mattie_p> everything seems to be under control on the site
[00:49:19] <mattie_p> I hope everyone is trying to document their stuff
[00:49:20] <stderr> Keyword: Seems
[00:49:23] <xlefay> It does appear that way, don't ask why, you don't want to know.
[00:49:26] <xlefay> s/why/how/
[00:49:51] <kobach> my stuff is documented right here in the open
[00:49:55] <mattie_p> I know there were discussions on poll systems, any consensus on what we could implement?
[00:49:56] <kobach> or xlefay handles it
[00:50:09] <mattie_p> kobach, all of your documentation is bacon, and we know where to find it
[00:50:25] <kobach> yes
[00:50:28] <kobach> and other pork products
[00:50:29] <xlefay> think there was but I left and started ## - a real chill channel without people using food as a nickname..
[00:50:33] <xlefay> so ask kobach he probably knows
[00:50:38] <kobach> rofl
[00:50:50] <kobach> playing the pass the blame game now are we
[00:50:57] <xlefay> heh no blame ;)
[00:51:05] <xlefay> Simple saying you probably know if there was consensus :P
[00:51:18] <xlefay> (and shamelessly advertising my new channel)
[00:51:28] <kobach> lol
[00:51:51] <kobach> not a lot of consensus, LaminatorX objects
[00:52:02] <xlefay> against the poll stuff?
[00:52:12] <kobach> no against ##
[00:52:13] <xlefay> <mattie_p> I know there were discussions on poll systems, any consensus on what we could implement?
[00:52:17] <xlefay> ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
[00:52:22] <kobach> lol
[00:52:23] <xlefay> ## is a private channel, no point in objecting
[00:52:26] <mattie_p> xlefay I didn't see any consensus
[00:52:34] <kobach> ^
[00:52:41] <mattie_p> xlefay just that we shouldn't use the current system for voting on site name
[00:52:42] <xlefay> aah good to know
[00:53:08] <mattie_p> I might run an ask soylent article looking for FOSS polling systems we could implement.
[00:53:12] <mattie_p> :)
[00:53:39] <xlefay> best to do some research first or you're going to get humiliated
[00:53:56] <mattie_p> anyway, gotta run again, today and tomorrow I'll be mostly in and out
[00:54:06] <xlefay> ok ;-)
[00:54:08] <mattie_p> I'll be on solid for a few hours tonight, tho
[00:54:12] <xlefay> We'll keep you apprised of all things bacon.
[00:54:19] <mattie_p> keep the bacon coming
[00:54:21] <mattie_p> talk to you all later
[00:54:25] <prospectacle> https://apps.ubuntu.com
[00:54:25] <xlefay> alrighty take care
[00:54:38] * xlefay notes NC is going to love prospectacle.

[01:02:52] <stderr> Argh... Where is janrinok when you need him?
[01:03:13] <stderr> (That's one of the reasons I hate queued articles...)
[01:08:09] <kobach> lol
[01:10:50] <paulej72> stderr: is there an issue with a story?
[01:11:36] <stderr> I'm just curious about the department for http://soylentnews.org
[01:20:01] <stderr> Maybe I'm just blind, but is there a way to set my preferred comment mode to "HTML", so I don't have to change it all the time?
[01:22:01] <paulej72> stderr: soylentnews.org/my/comments near the bottom
[01:22:46] <stderr> Ah, so I was blind...
[01:22:49] <stderr> Thanks.
[01:23:24] <mattie_p> stderr: the program purports to lower bandwidth for slash sites, optimized for mobile devices
[01:23:25] <stderr> "Saving stderr." Is that the sequel to "Saving Private Ryan"?
[01:23:50] <stderr> mattie_p: Yes?
[01:24:10] <mattie_p> regarding avantslash
[01:24:27] <stderr> "from the I-was-doing-OK-until-it-mentioned-perl dept."
[01:25:11] <stderr> Why not the savings dept.?
[01:26:19] <stderr> I don't get the perl hate... It wasn't needed at all.
[01:26:24] <mattie_p> I'd recommend you talk to janrinok about that.
[01:26:31] <stderr> [01:02:52] <stderr> Argh... Where is janrinok when you need him?
[01:26:32] <mattie_p> perl hate - especially since we live on perl here

[01:26:47] -!- mode/#staff [+v FunPika] by BaconTree
[01:26:56] <stderr> Exactly...
[01:27:30] <mattie_p> Do you have a seclevel on the main site?
[01:27:38] <mattie_p> I mean, anything above 1?
[01:27:57] <stderr> Maybe... Where can I check it?
[01:28:45] <mattie_p> just checked, you are a base user
[01:28:59] <mattie_p> how about on slashcott? any seclevel there?
[01:30:15] <stderr> No idea... You didn't tell me how to check it. :-)
[01:30:53] <mattie_p> it should show up on your user panel
[01:30:59] <mattie_p> if it is higher than 1
[01:31:15] <mattie_p> or, on slashcott, simple way to check is if you can see the admin tab across the top
[01:31:58] <stderr> In that case the answer is "no".
[01:32:12] <mattie_p> oh
[01:32:36] <mattie_p> I can't check your level on slashcott, as my seclevel there is 1
[01:32:59] <mattie_p> anyway, what I'd like to see is all staff members have at least editor priveleges on slashcott
[01:33:11] <mattie_p> so that way they can play with the interface before we turn them live
[01:33:13] <stderr> Damn, had I known slashcott would exist and be used for a long time, I would have used "stderr" as my login, not "stderr_dk"... :-/
[01:33:36] <mattie_p> prevents things like janrinok's "DO NOT RELEASE" story when we turn you loose on main
[01:34:04] <stderr> Sounds like a plan...
[01:34:21] <mattie_p> you remember that story, yes?
[01:35:03] <stderr> Yes.
[01:36:05] <stderr> Hmm, seems I have done anything at all on slashcott yet, not even a single comment... Maybe it would still be possible to change my username in the database without causing any problems.
[01:36:59] <paulej72> stderr: slashcott will go at some point and I am not sure if we can transport the db.
[01:37:20] <stderr> Ok.
[01:37:43] <paulej72> do you want admin access there
[01:37:54] <kobach> but i like perl :(
[01:38:04] <mattie_p> paulej72 please give him access there
[01:38:16] <mattie_p> paulej72 I think all staff needs to be familiar with backslash
[01:38:34] <kobach> no, just web staff
[01:38:46] <kobach> not irc semi-staff
[01:38:52] <kobach> .devoice kobach
[01:38:52] -!- mode/#staff [-v kobach] by BaconTree
[01:39:37] <paulej72> stderr: you should be an admin, don't break anything please.
[01:39:40] <mattie_p> well, anyone who requests one
[01:40:13] <mattie_p> paulej72 we need someone who has the time to introduce staff to the interface, I think
[01:40:26] <mattie_p> paulej72: I bet koback would be good at that
[01:40:35] <mattie_p> err, kobach
[01:40:41] <stderr> I can't promise I'll try, but I'll try to try...
[01:40:55] <paulej72> the editors know the edit stuff more than I do. I know the config pages daily well now.

[01:47:50] <mattie_p> bytram thanks for your detailed status report yesterday. I can't remember if I mentioned it at the time
[01:48:19] <mattie_p> honestly, great job on being the chair at the time, great job keeping your head cool and solving the problem rather than doing something
[01:49:42] <bytram> mattie_p: thanks!
[01:50:31] <bytram> mattie_p: The main takeaway for me is to delegeate BEFORE too much is happening.

[03:06:10] <stderr> xlefay: It's probably just combined with the certificate in the .cert file.
[03:06:39] <xlefay> guess so. I should watch a movie and sleep *almost falls of his chair, tired*
[03:06:48] <xlefay> mechanicjay: ya got it?
[03:08:03] <mechanicjay> got it, looking at it now
[03:08:45] <xlefay> k, good luck. If that's not all you need, I can't be of much help.
[03:11:47] <mechanicjay> xlefay: yeah, that's actually pretty useless. It's a SAN cert for soylentnews.org and www.soylentnews.org. WTF didn't he just buy *.soylentnews.org ?
[03:12:11] <xlefay> I suggested that once... guess he didn't listen

[03:12:59] <mechanicjay> oh, interesting.

[03:14:22] <stderr> What's worse for me is that it doesn't work for foo.bar.soylentnews.org either...
[03:14:31] <mechanicjay> hmm, yeah. anyway thats the cert running on https://soylentnews.org.
[03:15:13] <mechanicjay> alright well, I'll do a self-signed cert for imap and smtp auth for now until we can get a *.soylentnews.org for some of these ancillary services.
[03:16:05] <stderr> mechanicjay: If you're doing mail stuff anyway, why not get on signed at cacert.org? All you need is a working email address for postmaster, webmaster, root, admin or ... one I forgot...
[03:16:20] <LaminatorX> Figure any of us using those will know to accept the self-cert when appropriate.
[03:16:21] <stderr> hostmaster? Could be....
[03:17:48] <stderr> I would prefer a CAcert signed certificate over a self-signed and it doesn't take that long to get one...
[03:17:57] <stderr> (As in: Less than a minute...)
[03:18:15] <mechanicjay> stderr: that's a much better idea. I will do that, thanks for reminding me of cacert.

[03:20:37] <stderr> But since they're free anyway, it might be better to get different certificates for the different services...
[03:24:08] <bytram> hi!
[03:24:50] <bytram> I just noticed that the only difference between "staff" and "stuff" is "u"
[03:25:55] <mechanicjay> also, was someone looking for a volunteers@ email alias?
[03:26:55] <mattie_p> mrcoolbp was, but maybe we'll wait on that
[03:27:03] -!- mode/#staff [+v kobach] by BaconTree
[03:27:08] <kobach> who the fuck is space_man
[03:27:11] <mattie_p> each of the major groups has their own alias, right?
[03:27:12] <kobach> hes on #dev
[03:27:43] <xlefay> I think we should move those to info@...
[03:27:58] <xlefay> if you have that with a mailbox, you can just do info+volunteers@.. etc..
[03:28:46] <mattie_p> well, rather than put extra load on drcoolbp, I'm asking each group to update their wiki page, and produce story for the main page with their status
[03:28:47] <xlefay> actually, scrap that mailbox, just find a webbased system we can pipe info@ to and then we can use the webbased system (multiple teams) to handle info+<whatever> mails
[03:28:52] <mattie_p> and solicit volunteers directly.
[03:29:20] <Landon> xlefay: why the +?
[03:29:33] <mattie_p> so rather than drcoolbp try to query each potential volunteer on their skills and talents, have each person self-select their own group to help with
[03:29:43] <xlefay> so you can easily use a webbased system and filter based on email address + you can extend it without creating new aliases
[03:30:08] <xlefay> Landon: for instance, xlefay+whatever@... arrives at me too ;)
[03:30:40] <xlefay> mattie_p: same goes with the webbased system, eg.. irc+volunteers@.. we can all set that up with a neat little webbased system (still looking for a good one to make that proposal)
[03:30:53] <xlefay> + we can standardize and make things more easy for teams =)
[03:32:12] <xlefay> see what I'm saying mattie_p?
[03:32:48] <mattie_p> I see what you are saying, but I don't think that system is set up yet, is it?
[03:32:57] <xlefay> no, still making the proposal
[03:33:02] <mattie_p> ahh, yes
[03:33:42] <mattie_p> well, in the meantime, I'd like the group chiefs to update their own status and solicit for volunteers directly
[03:33:51] <xlefay> yea
[03:34:00] <mattie_p> rather than dump more into drcoolbp'
[03:34:03] <mattie_p> 's lap
[03:34:39] <mattie_p> I mean, he'll get emails like "Hey, my name is bada-bing, and I want to help!"
[03:35:18] <xlefay> Yeah. I'm just advising we already start using those <team>+<whatever>@sn just in advance
[03:35:19] <mattie_p> and then he'll have to email back with "OK, well, thanks for volunteering, badabing, what can you do ? I'll help point you in the right direction"
[03:35:44] <mattie_p> and then badabing will be" I can code! I am a coder!"
[03:35:49] <mattie_p> and so on
[03:36:45] <xlefay> yeah
[03:36:47] <mattie_p> xlefay I'm all for it. I just don't think volunteers should be one of the groups/cloaks
[03:36:49] audioguy-afk is now known as audioguy
[03:36:50] <mattie_p> that we use
[03:37:02] <xlefay> mattie_p: volunteers have their own group and own cloak
[03:37:16] <mattie_p> is anyone using it?
[03:37:22] <xlefay> It's a "Thank you" for their contributions
[03:38:01] <xlefay> martyb is.. guess he hasn't updated yet
[03:38:30] <mattie_p> well, so on IRC volunteers are people who haven't fully committed yet
[03:38:52] <mattie_p> the email account volunteers@was for people to drop their names in the hat as volunteers
[03:38:52] <xlefay> or just people who have done something awesome for us and deserve the recognition
[03:39:06] <mattie_p> at least per the initial request
[03:39:07] <stderr> mattie_p: And then we'll be like "But badabing, I have seen you search engine. It sucks..."
[03:40:04] <mattie_p> stderr: I've come to the conclusion they all suck, just in different ways. Google might help you find something the best, but then it tracks your thoughts, even away from the computer, for the next 7-10 days
[03:40:26] <stderr> And the previous 7-10 days...

[04:30:32] <drcoolbp> did I miss anything?
[04:31:13] <mattie_p> xlefay was in charge for a while.
[04:31:18] <mattie_p> that was interesting
[04:31:26] * xlefay broke everything.
[04:31:27] <drcoolbp> hahah
[04:31:35] <drcoolbp> I can imagine
[04:32:09] * drcoolbp 's computer is not cooperating right now
[04:34:40] <mattie_p> drcoolbp I want to not have the volunteer@SN email address for you
[04:34:44] bytram_afk is now known as bytram
[04:34:50] <drcoolbp> k
[04:34:56] <mattie_p> by asking each group to post their status in the wiki and post a story
[04:35:08] <mattie_p> I'm hoping volunteers self-select for the best group
[04:35:21] <drcoolbp> that would be ideal
[04:35:33] <mattie_p> this way we prevent something like:"Hey, my name is bada-bing, and I want to help!"

[04:36:37] <drcoolbp> I'm guessing you have something else for me then?
[04:36:39] <drcoolbp> = )
[04:37:15] <mattie_p> strangely enough, not at this time
[04:37:38] <mattie_p> although if you could work with the other group leaders on their wiki that would be nice. But this isn't a command, just a request
[04:37:55] <drcoolbp> got it

[04:44:12] <Captain_coolbp> mattie_p any thoughts on my staff/vs volunteers thing?
[04:44:40] <mattie_p> I honestly didn't get a chance to review. we'll have to cross-reference with NCommander's email as well
[04:44:57] <Captain_coolbp> I would like to have a system for when someone becomes staff that gives them privs, and direct them to a welcome packet (irc commands, ICS, etc.)
[04:46:56] <Captain_coolbp> paulej72: did you consider NCommander's request to help herd Dev volunteers?
[04:47:48] <Captain_coolbp> mattie_p: we will have to remove references to my email as a volunteer contact, I'll add that to my list so we can avoid the catch-all scenario you mentioned
[04:47:59] <paulej72> YEs I am the head cat herder for dev. I have been putting up docs on the Wiki to get the up and running
[04:48:57] <mattie_p> paulej72: essentially, you are head of dev. The main man just happens to work with your group a lot.
[04:49:04] <Captain_coolbp> I will forward an email to you

[04:49:42] <mattie_p> honestly, in my role as deputy I think I am staff cat-herder. so that should be mine

[04:51:47] <mattie_p> one way or another we're keeping IRC, I suspect. RT communications is essential and there is hate upon voice/video. question is freenode or here, but I don't think we're dumping IRC

[04:54:06] <Captain_coolbp> that might be difficult, but maybe we could run some kind of story

[04:54:22] <paulej72> yea that is not happening
[04:54:34] <Captain_coolbp> I didnt' think so
[04:54:58] <LaminatorX> We could put up a story that was a whole lot or digits of pi.

[04:56:03] <Captain_coolbp> after submitting a story
[04:56:05] <mattie_p> I think it is kind of like google doodles, not a bad idea, but maybe too soon.
[04:56:24] <kobach> just put up a story full of pi
[04:56:38] <kobach> pi to 1-200 digits should work

[05:02:59] <Captain_coolbp> LaminatorX It looks like it's linked to what that "Story Style" document is (not same but similar), not sure what the original file looks like, but from what I get from the email it is a page explaining why stories get accepted or not
[05:03:21] <Captain_coolbp> mattie_p I actually linked to it on the Editors team page
[05:03:35] <mattie_p> look at you
[05:03:38] <Captain_coolbp> It is intentionally incomplete from what I can tell
[05:03:49] <mattie_p> I should give you a promotion

[05:21:06] <Admiral_coolbp> thanks!
[05:21:12] <LaminatorX> Sure.
[05:21:53] <Admiral_coolbp> and the pi day story, any ideas for that?
[05:22:14] <LaminatorX> (Truthfully, we accept almost everything at he moment. Submissions are about keepng pace with posting)
[05:22:23] <paulej72> Admiral_coolbp: bug is posted, but the link goes to the faq, which is severely broken and has none of its subpages. that link is supposed to go here /faq/editorial.shtml#ed200
[05:22:51] <Admiral_coolbp> let me see if I can find that on github
[05:22:52] <LaminatorX> That faq is 1 on my todo, I believe.
[05:23:08] <paulej72> Admiral_coolbp: not in github MIA
[05:23:13] <Admiral_coolbp> ah
[05:23:23] <Admiral_coolbp> so we have to create from scratch as I suspected
[05:23:27] <paulej72> along with the D2 JS scripts
[05:23:59] <paulej72> Ok I am outa here
[05:24:08] <Admiral_coolbp> okay, g'night sir!
[05:24:23] <paulej72> good night all
[05:24:25] -!- paulej72 has quit [Quit: paulej72]
[05:24:29] <Admiral_coolbp> alright, LaminatorX, once you create those two pages, forward them to me or paulej72 and we'll get them up
[05:24:44] <LaminatorX> Gotcha.
[05:24:47] <Admiral_coolbp> nice
[05:25:55] <Admiral_coolbp> if you can come up with a pi day story that would be cool, even if it is just a link to http://www.piday.org
[05:26:10] <Admiral_coolbp> not to crush you under to do list items
[05:27:12] <Admiral_coolbp> you could delegate that one for sure
[05:28:34] <Admiral_coolbp> LaminatorX: ^^^^^
[05:28:55] <LaminatorX> I think a whole bunch of digits of pi linkin to piday . org would do it.
[05:29:12] <Admiral_coolbp> up to you
[05:29:19] <Admiral_coolbp> it's in your hands now
[05:29:48] <LaminatorX> I'll ask for clever ideas, and go with digits if none are forthcoming.

[05:34:11] * Admiral_coolbp notes the last time NCommander had him do something he shut the entire site down for 2 hours
[05:34:25] * xlefay notes he doesn't feel comfortable with that
[05:34:35] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, told you not to cross the streams damn it
[05:34:35] <kobach> rofl
[05:34:45] <kobach> owned, you crossed the streams when told not to
[05:34:52] <kobach> slacker
[05:34:53] <Admiral_coolbp> ah yes I knew I forgot an important detail
[05:34:54] <NCommander> I'm feeling considerly more human
[05:35:02] <Admiral_coolbp> excellent
[05:35:02] <xlefay> In Admiral_coolbp's defense, there was bacon on the other side.
[05:35:05] <kobach> dont feel bad, egon recently crossed the streams IRL
[05:35:14] <Admiral_coolbp> ?
[05:35:17] * NCommander notes nothing beats international train trips, and heading to a new country for perspective
[05:35:28] <Admiral_coolbp> so how's singapore?
[05:35:34] <kobach> harold ramis died a couple weeks ago
[05:35:39] <Admiral_coolbp> oh no!
[05:35:43] <kobach> lol
[05:35:45] <kobach> he crossed the streams
[05:35:48] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, different
[05:35:55] <Landon> NCommander: trains++
[05:35:55] <Admiral_coolbp> kobach: that'll do it
[05:36:02] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: how so?
[05:36:03] <kobach> yea, he was the first one to warn them about it too
[05:36:08] <NCommander> Landon, I once spent a week just riding trains across eastern Europe
[05:36:17] <Admiral_coolbp> cool
[05:36:21] <NCommander> Started in Slovina, and then from there made my way across the Balkins
[05:36:22] <kobach> but seriously, he died of some sort of semi-rare disease
[05:36:32] <Admiral_coolbp> ah, that's not as funny
[05:36:39] <xlefay> hmm move it outta this chan? :)
[05:36:44] <Landon> NCommander: I don't have any experience with trains outside of the US, but had a nice relaxing time on amtrak through the northeast last fall
[05:36:51] <Admiral_coolbp> oh yeah sorry xlefay
[05:37:08] <kobach> NCommander: ive always wanted to take a train from glasgow to vladivostok
[05:37:13] <Landon> and by relaxing I mean "damnit, the train is going to be late again"
[05:37:16] <Admiral_coolbp> Guys: this channel is for staff discussion, suggest moving to Soylent or somewhere else
[05:37:25] <xlefay> or ## ... *shameless*
[05:37:28] <kobach> yea Landon quit talking about trains
[05:37:33] <Landon> choo choo
[05:37:35] <kobach> lol
[05:37:44] <xlefay> dang should have made it #choochoo
[05:38:19] <Admiral_coolbp> xlefay: we were actually quite productive here in the last hour
[05:38:35] <xlefay> I know :) kudos
[05:38:38] <Admiral_coolbp> thanks
[05:39:25] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: when will you be back?
[05:42:35] <NCommander> kobach, I've gone Dubin to Paris by sea/rail
[05:42:53] * Admiral_coolbp is a little jealous of NCommander
[05:43:00] <Admiral_coolbp> I want to see the world
[05:43:01] <NCommander> Landon, and Amtrak is awesome if you're not in a rush
[05:43:05] <NCommander> I've done New York -> Chicago
[05:43:08] <NCommander> and Miami -> New York
[05:43:18] <NCommander> As well as the Acela
[05:43:34] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, pack a bag, sell everything you own, and hit the open road
[05:43:42] * Admiral_coolbp is married
[05:43:49] <Admiral_coolbp> with cats
[05:43:55] <Admiral_coolbp> = )
[05:44:27] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: when will you be back?
[05:44:35] <Admiral_coolbp> just curious
[05:44:46] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, I'll be back in the states on Sunday
[05:45:08] <Admiral_coolbp> cool
[05:45:22] <Admiral_coolbp> we'll hold the fort down until then
[05:45:38] <Admiral_coolbp> unless I have to migrate any more linode servers....
[05:46:47] <NCommander> Wait, what?
[05:46:48] <NCommander> "Thank you for contacting us! I have transferred sn100dfw-svc to this account as requested. Your monthly invoices will be $165.00, and you will receive a $276.00 invoice for this Linode (and the Backup Service) on March 1, 2015. Let us know if we can further assist you!"
[05:46:55] <LaminatorX> StL to New Orleans. :)
[05:47:12] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander WTF???
[05:47:22] <kobach> LaminatorX: do NOT, EVER, go the other way
[05:47:28] <NCommander> I'm asking for clarification
[05:47:30] <Admiral_coolbp> is that POSITIVE or NEGATIVE?
[05:47:51] <kobach> illinois is boring enough driving, on the train you have nothing to do but stare at corn, or pay attention to what you brough
[05:48:18] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, I don't know
[05:48:23] <Admiral_coolbp> kobach: LaminatorX: please take it somewhere else
[05:48:32] <kobach> i tried, train stuff kept happening in here
[05:48:32] <NCommander> kobach, I dunno, I like corn. I like seeing which fields are growing which corn for my project of mapping all the corn in the world
[05:48:46] <LaminatorX> \The Texas Eagle and River Runner are actually much prettier rides than the City of New Orleans.
[05:48:47] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: I was verry clear with them and they were clear about giving you CREDIT
[05:48:50] <Admiral_coolbp> kobach: LaminatorX: please take it somewhere else
[05:48:59] <kobach> 12.23:48:32 <+kobach> i tried, train stuff kept happening in here
[05:49:00] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, yeah well, seems this wasn't. I just fired a question
[05:49:17] <Admiral_coolbp> let me know cause I will call them up
[05:49:29] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, will do
[05:49:32] <Admiral_coolbp> k
[05:49:55] <Admiral_coolbp> you know how to find me
[05:50:06] -!- kobach [kobach!~nope@Soylent/Staff/IRC/kobach] has parted #staff
[05:50:21] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: did you see mattie_p's suggestion regarding passwords ?
[05:50:35] <NCommander> no
[05:50:59] <Admiral_coolbp> the idea was that he could have all the passwords, but not access
[05:51:03] <mattie_p> central respository, two-person authentication by non-users
[05:51:08] <Admiral_coolbp> yeah that
[05:51:23] <mattie_p> I keep a true-crypt, someone else has the key, or something
[05:51:28] <NCommander> AH
[05:51:32] <NCommander> Ok, it was a credit
[05:51:32] <mattie_p> or vice versa
[05:51:33] <NCommander> $0.00 in outstanding invoices
[05:51:33] <NCommander> $535.40 (credit)
[05:51:37] <NCommander> linode++
[05:51:38] <Admiral_coolbp> nice
[05:51:43] <mattie_p> bonus
[05:51:55] <mattie_p> sorry, still doing homework
[05:52:14] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: consider the passwords thing, it would have avoided some frustration this week
[05:52:17] <mattie_p> but the fact is, we could have solved the site outage earlier if someone had access to the linode
[05:52:22] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, yeah, how do you recommend dooing it?
[05:52:30] * NCommander notes this is still we should have had in place weeks ago :-/
[05:52:30] <Admiral_coolbp> as mattie suggested
[05:52:37] <NCommander> I can't easily use truecrypt
[05:52:42] <Admiral_coolbp> okay
[05:52:44] <mattie_p> you don't need it
[05:52:54] <Admiral_coolbp> well he has most of the passwords
[05:53:02] <mattie_p> NCommander, what we need is to be able to get into the boxes
[05:53:07] <mattie_p> alternate solutions may work
[05:53:24] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: you know the idea, any suggestions?
[05:53:37] <mattie_p> if I keep the encryption keys and others keep the file, we have two-person integrity in an emergency but can fix things
[05:53:46] <mattie_p> then we change passwords and reset the system
[05:54:03] <Admiral_coolbp> I'm Commander right now, and this is an incident in my eyes (albeit not *currently* a pressing one)
[05:54:15] <NCommander> :-P
[05:54:18] <Admiral_coolbp> hehee
[05:54:44] <mattie_p> NCommander I've been forcing the staff to cycle through, we try to have someone in command all the time
[05:55:01] <Admiral_coolbp> I'd suggest we find a solution to this ASAP
[05:55:16] <Admiral_coolbp> doesn't have to be right now
[05:55:18] <mattie_p> martyb == bytram did an excellent job with the crisis on his watch
[05:55:27] * Admiral_coolbp nods
[05:56:48] <Admiral_coolbp> mattie_p something we should make clear though regarding commanders is qualifications
[05:57:03] <Admiral_coolbp> if an incident arises and someone else is more qualified
[05:57:09] <mattie_p> if an incident pops up they are not qualified to handle, recuse yourself
[05:57:14] <Admiral_coolbp> they need to step up and request command
[05:57:21] <mattie_p> I think NCommander demonstrated that by his own actions on Monday
[05:57:38] -!- Admiral_coolbp has quit []
[05:57:50] <mattie_p> umm, ok?

[05:59:19] <NCommander> Yeah, figured as much
[05:59:24] <NCommander> We need a better polling system
[05:59:28] <mattie_p> yup
[05:59:41] * NCommander has that on his things to delgate TODO list

[05:59:58] <mattie_p> I've asked paulej72 to look into possible solutions we can import
[06:00:01] <NCommander> I was going to limit it a bit more, based on karma, and make it so karma ages away over time.
[06:00:28] <mattie_p> anyway, for discussion later, I think
[06:00:37] <mattie_p> you see Matt_'s journal?
[06:00:42] <mattie_p> take a look at it
[06:00:45] <NCommander> link?
[06:01:02] <mattie_p> also, http://soylentnews.org
[06:01:23] <NCommander> "joy"
[06:01:33] <matt_> let me know if anything is glaringly weird or seems off...
[06:01:56] <mattie_p> matt_ as per the lego movie, "Everything is Awesome"
[06:02:03] <matt_> was meant to have a soothing effect...
[06:02:09] <NCommander> I think the biggest problem is that we have no clear future
[06:02:11] * NCommander sighs
[06:02:11] <mattie_p> ... when you're part of the team
[06:02:16] <NCommander> Seems I can't take a braek
[06:02:17] <matt_> everyone seems to like it except poutine...
[06:02:25] <mattie_p> poutine--
[06:02:42] * NCommander sees himself a lot like Emmit
[06:02:42] <mattie_p> he's a troll, but he's honestly helpful sometimes
[06:03:15] <matt_> yeah he seems to have a lot of fun here :)
[06:03:18] <mattie_p> NCommander, how long do we have you for? I need to wrap this up in about 30 minutes, then I can chat maybe another hour beyond that
[06:03:32] <NCommander> I can stick around if need be, I was kinda thinking about going out though
[06:04:33] <mattie_p> everything is under control
[06:04:51] <mattie_p> I've asked the team to stop making big changes and focus on documenting where we are at
[06:05:01] baconbutter is now known as Kif
[06:05:14] <mattie_p> kinda wanted to discuss that with you if you wanted to clarify my guidance

[06:05:52] <Admiral_coolbp> k
[06:06:03] <mattie_p> too easy for SN to distract me
[06:06:11] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: any ideas on this issue?
[06:06:37] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, password one?
[06:06:40] <Admiral_coolbp> yes
[06:07:16] <Admiral_coolbp> the linode privs have been restored to robin and paule by now I assume?
[06:07:37] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, I think so
[06:07:50] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, honestly, I rather just create each person an account so they can access it
[06:07:58] <Admiral_coolbp> not me
[06:08:04] <NCommander> either shell accounts or linode account directly
[06:08:42] * NCommander is currrently trying to get the last bit of his travel arrangements settled
[06:09:13] <Admiral_coolbp> if you are creating lots of accounts be judicious with privs
[06:09:34] <Admiral_coolbp> not sure how much granularity there is but you get what I'm saying
[06:09:42] <Landon> mattie_p: I ended up dropping one class, hopefully more time to let SN distract me :)
[06:10:21] <mattie_p> I'm only taking one class. I don't really want to drop it
[06:10:26] <Admiral_coolbp> Landon: you're karma voting system was put to the test yesterday
[06:10:39] <Landon> oh?
[06:10:43] <Admiral_coolbp> oh yeah
[06:10:44] <Landon> how do
[06:10:58] <Admiral_coolbp> we used it to create a short-list for site names
[06:11:09] <Admiral_coolbp> we had like 13 and narrowed to 7
[06:11:20] <Landon> nice :)
[06:11:29] <Admiral_coolbp> it was a little hectic though
[06:11:49] <Admiral_coolbp> 5 screens worth of +1 -1 etc
[06:12:07] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, there's a fair bit.. I can block accounts from billing stuff, accessing console, etc
[06:12:09] <NCommander> Very very modular
[06:12:40] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: that's a really good start, consider the "rest" of the passwords too, not just linode
[06:13:42] <Admiral_coolbp> I think it's a good idea, but I want to be cautious too
[06:13:53] -!- LaminatorX has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
[06:14:13] <Admiral_coolbp> let us know if you come up with anything, mattie will keep it in mind as well I'm sure
[06:14:49] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, once we get the LDAP resetup, we can just create everyone a shella ccount, then see who should be able to sudo to root
[06:15:04] <Admiral_coolbp> cool, who is working on that?
[06:17:37] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, I volunteered mechanicjay
[06:17:38] <NCommander> :-)
[06:17:54] <NCommander> zford did it originally, but left no documentation so I disabled it when I had to delete his account
[06:18:08] * Admiral_coolbp nods
[06:18:40] <Admiral_coolbp> we are starting to get more volunteers by the way
[06:18:44] <Admiral_coolbp> slowly
[06:18:47] <Admiral_coolbp> but surely
[06:18:53] <Admiral_coolbp> hopefully
[06:19:05] * Admiral_coolbp notes that's a lot of "ly"s
[06:21:01] * NCommander cites Admiral_coolbp for adverb abuse
[06:21:24] * Admiral_coolbp accepts the citation
[06:22:48] <mattie_p> by the way, who came up with the idea to re-name with cmdr_ or whatever? they need to get a citation as well, but a good citation
[06:23:06] <Admiral_coolbp> I think it was paulej72, but I'm not sure
[06:23:30] <Admiral_coolbp> He want with Commander, audioguy went with Commadore
[06:23:39] <Admiral_coolbp> I followed suit with Captain

[06:26:20] <mattie_p> fuck the air force anyway.
[06:26:31] <NCommander> mattie_p, I smell interserve rivalry
[06:26:42] <mattie_p> possibly. I might be biased

[06:33:16] <NCommander> Admiral_coolbp, a lot of things
[06:33:33] <Admiral_coolbp> there was a story today and discussion in comments
[06:33:54] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: ^^
[06:36:33] <NCommander> I'll look in a bit
[06:36:42] * NCommander is booking a return ticket to Hong Kong
[06:36:54] <NCommander> Flying out Saturday, layover in Malina, then to Hong Kong
[06:37:00] <NCommander> 12h layover, then HELLO US
[06:37:01] <Admiral_coolbp> aye
[06:45:06] <NCommander> I'm going to get off that damn plane and want to off myself
[06:45:34] <Admiral_coolbp> yeah, try to avoid that sir.
[06:53:10] <Admiral_coolbp> okay seriously: I need to pass the torch, is any staff around?
[06:53:32] <mechanicjay> Okay an I need a guinea pig
[06:53:39] <Admiral_coolbp> lol
[06:53:52] <Admiral_coolbp> mechanicjay you need a guenea pig?
[06:54:04] <Admiral_coolbp> whatcha got?
[06:54:26] <mechanicjay> initial cut at the soylent mailconfig is done - I need to inflict it on someone so they can tell me how it sucks ;)
[06:54:33] <Admiral_coolbp> go

[06:57:45] <Admiral_coolbp> okay, anything I can do to help in that time?
[06:57:47] <mechanicjay> Okay, well let me set you mailbox up and password and give you the info, we'll leave the forward in place so you'll get mail in your soylent mailbox and forwared off.
[06:57:56] <mechanicjay> Then you can beat on it tomorrow.

[07:08:51] <Admiral_coolbp> I meant an email stating how I might help do so
[07:13:51] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander: have we told applesmasher we'll be nuking his forums soon?
[07:13:59] <NCommander> I dunno
[07:14:12] * NCommander notes nothing say "Hey, look up" like a nuclear crater
[07:14:57] <Admiral_coolbp> maybe we should check with him, let him know we still want him on board

[07:20:25] <Admiral_coolbp> go to sleep sir.
[07:20:48] <mattie_p> Oh, I will admiral
[07:20:53] <Admiral_coolbp> heh
[07:21:07] <Admiral_coolbp> we should be okay for a few hours
[07:21:15] <Admiral_coolbp> NCommander said he is "on call"
[07:21:30] <NCommander> I'll get my phone hooked up
[07:21:30] <mattie_p> dunno what that means
[07:21:35] <NCommander> but I'll check my messages once in awhile
[07:21:39] <NCommander> and get online properly if I need to
[07:22:00] <mattie_p> oh, good. Barrabas gave me your number, is it ok to call if an emergency?

[07:22:44] <mattie_p> I'll know it when I see it

[08:47:58] <matt_> no one useful ;)
[08:48:04] <mechanicjay> ha!
[08:48:18] <mechanicjay> okay, the mailinglists are currently not working.
[08:48:28] <mechanicjay> I've been fighting with it for hours.
[08:48:59] <stderr> What's the problem?
[08:49:04] <mechanicjay> When I got stuff configured for local mail delivery, dovecot is trying to handle the list mails, and I can't get postfix to hand them off to mailman
[08:54:04] <stderr> The mailing lists are @lists.soylentnews.org, right?
[08:54:44] <stderr> I'm asking because there's no MX-records for lists.soylentnews.org
[08:55:59] <stderr> On the other hand, there's two MX-records for soylentnews.org: mail.soylentnews.org and lists.soylentnews.org Both of those have the same A record. That doesn't make sense...
[08:58:24] <mechanicjay> based on linodes limited web interface for mx handling, I did the best i could with the dns config. it worked fine until about an hour go.
[08:59:50] <stderr> Do we have one or two mailservers?
[09:00:03] <mechanicjay> one
[09:00:25] <stderr> What's its name?

[09:04:17] <stderr> But dig @remote.demmers.org -t any soylentnews.org says remote.demmers.org doesn't know anything at all about soylentnews.org
[09:05:32] <Dopefish> oh hey
[09:05:42] <Dopefish> I still hear the drama is ongoing with the domain
[09:05:45] <MrBluze> Hi all
[09:05:48] <stderr> Can we run our own bind and just have linode (or someone else) pull the records from there?
[09:07:13] <mechanicjay> stderr: the machine has a bunch of A records because it's overloaded as shit right now.
[09:07:18] <mechanicjay> is th eip
[09:07:59] <mechanicjay> basically, the problem I'm having is sort of talked about here:
[09:08:01] <mechanicjay> http://www.howtoforge.com
[09:08:03] <mechanicjay> and here:
[09:08:12] <mechanicjay> https://mail.python.org
[09:09:28] <stderr> A telnet to the smtp port on says: mail.soylentnews.org, so that's what the mailserver think its name is...
[09:09:58] -!- Dopefish has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[09:10:16] <stderr> Since we only have one mailserver for @soylentnews.org and that mailserver think its name is mail... I would drop this MX record: soylentnews.org. 300 IN MX 10 lists.soylentnews.org.
[09:11:07] <stderr> It doesn't make sense to says "if you want to send emails to @soylentnews.org, first try mail.soylentnews.org at If that doesn't work, try lists.soylentnews.org at _the exact same_ IP".
[09:12:28] <stderr> If we can't make a MX-record for @lists.soylentnews.org in linodes web interface, I think we should drop using that interface ASAP and use something else.
[09:13:01] -!- quitte_ [quitte_!~quitte@m3yg1vhet.dip8.t-ipconnect.de] has joined #staff
[09:13:24] <stderr> Something else might be to run our own bind and have linode pull records from there or have e.g. gratisdns.dk pull the records from our own bind... Or have the records directly at e.g. gratisdns.dk

[09:22:14] <MrBluze> Just to confirm the domain name has been handed over, right?
[09:22:30] <matt_> from B to me.
[09:22:41] <matt_> it was a little complicated...
[09:22:48] <MrBluze> Okay
[09:22:54] <matt_> there was a 60-day lock, since they were registered less than 60 days ago.
[09:23:08] <stderr> matt_: Of course it was complicated... B was involved. :-)
[09:23:29] <MrBluze> Yeah I can't really say I'm surprised
[09:23:35] <matt_> ...so he had to give me control of his entire Gandi account.
[09:23:58] <matt_> but first he had to scrub it of his other services.
[09:24:17] <MrBluze> Oh
[09:24:37] <matt_> finally, because he couldn't scrub all personal info, he asked me to promise not to share access.
[09:24:48] <matt_> the idea being that the domains can be transferred out after 4 more weeks.
[09:24:56] <matt_> whew!
[09:24:56] <MrBluze> Why couldn't he just write a contract ensuring handover and safe custody in the interim
[09:25:22] * MrBluze shrugs
[09:25:24] <matt_> contracts occasionally need to be enforced ;)
[09:25:31] <matt_> this was probably easier.
[09:25:35] <MrBluze> Yeah they do but..
[09:26:00] <MrBluze> In a way yes, I'd not have trusted anything but the real deal
[09:27:53] <matt_> none of these mailserver issues have anything to do with anything on the Gandi account, do they?
[09:28:41] <mechanicjay> fucking a
[09:28:43] <mechanicjay> I got it
[09:28:45] <MrBluze> Doubt it.. Have u changed the password and contact details on the gandi account?
[09:28:52] <matt_> yep.
[09:28:59] <MrBluze> Then it's safe
[09:29:02] <stderr> mechanicjay++
[09:29:12] <mechanicjay> following these instructions -- yet again: http://wiki.list.org
[09:30:06] <mechanicjay> I had the bright idea to bounce dovecot this time - which apparently did the trick and let something happen so that it wasn't just glomming onto all the traffic and let postfix route the lists traffic via the mailman transport
[09:31:41] <mechanicjay> As of right now, we have lists, local mailboxes and alias forwards working on the same box
[09:32:37] <mechanicjay> and now I need to go the fuck to bed, since it's four fucking thirty in the morning.
[09:33:21] <MrBluze> Four fucking thirty sounds like hard work
[09:34:01] <stderr> Hard work, but a good movie...
[09:34:21] <MrBluze> Yeah definitely it would sell
[09:37:06] <mechanicjay> excellent -- how do I make money off that? ;)

[09:38:32] mechanicjay is now known as mechanicjay|zzz
[09:38:40] <stderr> Meanwhile I confirmed what I suspected... If a hostname doesn't have an MX record (like lists.soylentnews.org doesn't) a mailserver should fall back to checking for an A record for that hostname (lists.soylentnews.org has an A record) and if one is found, it should be treated as a MX record...
[09:39:25] <stderr> That's a "SHOULD", so it might fail with some mail servers... So we do want a MX record for lists.soylentnews.org at some point.
[09:48:04] <stderr> I know nothing about SPF records, but http://mxtoolbox.com thinks the SPF record for soylentnews.org is invalid. Can someone who knows about SPF check the record?

[11:31:36] <MrBluze> yeah probably

[11:51:09] <janrinok> hi guys
[11:51:10] * FatPhil interrupts Led Zep I to play some Mark King...
[11:51:27] <MrBluze> but firingsquid is available
[11:51:30] <MrBluze> hi janrinok
[11:51:39] <janrinok> MrBluze: good morning to you
[11:52:13] <MrBluze> gmorning
[11:53:30] <MrBluze> i dunno
[11:53:42] <MrBluze> i dont think soylentology would win a vote
[11:53:56] <MrBluze> see the problem with soylent is .. well... its a bit abstract really
[11:54:08] <MrBluze> too many steps to find the meaning
[11:55:05] <FatPhil> lack of direct meaning isn't a negative for me
[11:55:23] <stderr> I personally would like a clean break from everything related to B.
[11:55:35] <MrBluze> i really like geekcard
[11:55:56] <FatPhil> I know a lot do, I think it will be popular, but it rings the wrong bells in my head
[11:55:56] <MrBluze> sort of speaks of what we're about .. the license to geekdom
[11:56:19] <MrBluze> i agree, doesnt have to be direct meaning
[11:56:31] <MrBluze> but if not, then has to be catchy
[11:56:37] <MrBluze> port119 is catchy
[11:56:39] <FatPhil> I like word-play and puns
[11:57:17] <MrBluze> and that's mysterious enough for people to maybe google what it means, or they will straight away know and feel justifiably geeky
[11:57:35] <FatPhil> the thing is that I've been using usenet since only about a year after the great renaming (I remember people refering to net.math for several years), so port119 seems a bit fake to me
[11:58:03] <MrBluze> the other things is first impressions.
[11:58:12] <MrBluze> when i ask ppl at work what they think of soylentnews .. as a name
[11:58:13] * janrinok confesses that he had to Google port119
[11:58:17] <MrBluze> they think "sounds like a toilet"
[11:58:59] <FatPhil> this is why we need a vote - there are many different opinions
[11:59:03] <MrBluze> these are not 'nerds' but, well, ppl with phD's and stuff
[11:59:57] <MrBluze> .. i know we aren't about marketing but the population of worthwhile nad interesting nerds in the world is actually huge.. probably more than a million
[12:00:22] <MrBluze> that would be an awesome population to draw to our attention
[12:00:24] <FatPhil> so you're saying that 2/3rds of /. is astroturfers and bots?
[12:00:49] <MrBluze> easy
[12:00:58] <MrBluze> 2/3 of /. are inactive for years
[12:01:03] <MrBluze> at least .. if not more
[12:01:09] <MrBluze> they dont have 1 million active users .. lmao
[12:01:10] <stderr> FatPhil: Only 2/3?
[12:01:27] <FatPhil> I will confess to having 4 /. accounts. Not gonna tell you what the other nicks were though...
[12:01:46] <FatPhil> 3 genuinely were troller accounts.
[12:01:49] <MrBluze> sure but ..
[12:02:03] <MrBluze> well my point is .. the name needs to be easy to say
[12:02:04] <FatPhil> 2 of them got to karma cap and never left that level. people liked my trolls
[12:02:16] <MrBluze> like dailybacon is easy to say .. maybe not exactly what we need but easy to say
[12:02:44] <FatPhil> some mystery is good though.
[12:02:49] <MrBluze> yes true
[12:03:05] <MrBluze> i just wish it didnt have to be green sludge
[12:03:41] <FatPhil> only green was green
[12:04:08] <MrBluze> yeah but it's all the connotations and so on
[12:04:37] <FatPhil> I have no problem with darker twists
[12:04:38] <MrBluze> reminds me of portaloo's and bio-toilets, and pond-scum and stagnant stuff and the bubbling pits of rotorua
[12:05:09] <FatPhil> maybe that's a reflection on the internet as a whole, and how it's turned out?
[12:05:22] <MrBluze> great, lets celebrate how shit the internet is
[12:05:27] * MrBluze grins
[12:05:27] * stderr starts chanting "We want name poll! We want name poll!"
[12:05:34] <FatPhil> yeah!
[12:05:43] <MrBluze> i NEED a name poll
[12:05:47] <MrBluze> otherwise i dont know where to go with the new skin
[12:05:54] <MrBluze> i dont want a soylent skin for a bacon name
[12:05:56] <MrBluze> or whatever
[12:05:57] <FatPhil> We need a non-stuffable ballot first.
[12:06:05] <MrBluze> that's difficult
[12:06:20] <MrBluze> but one vote per UID is .. nearly ok
[12:06:26] <MrBluze> given we cannot authenticate anyone anyway
[12:06:34] <stderr> If we don't want to use the poll booth, I think we should use the way Debian does votes.
[12:06:43] <FatPhil> yes, that's kinda what I meant, good distinction
[12:07:02] <MrBluze> yes i like the debian one
[12:07:20] <MrBluze> but fwiw
[12:07:29] <MrBluze> we do the poll, we take the result to the staff
[12:07:32] <MrBluze> the staff discuss and decide
[12:07:43] <FatPhil> I may have used Debian for 15 years, know about 20 debain maintainers, and my g/f knows the current project lead personally, but I have absolutely no idea how they do their votes
[12:07:46] <MrBluze> otherwise we are just beholden to abuse
[12:07:48] <stderr> MrBluze: One vote per UID, but only the first 3k+something users... Otherwise we'll hit 5k users in no time.
[12:08:05] <MrBluze> yeah freeze the UID's for the vote
[12:08:19] <MrBluze> i wonder if we can do that .. does the poll record who voted where?

[12:08:40] <stderr> MrBluze: I'm pretty sure it does.

[12:09:00] <stderr> FatPhil: We have another channel for staff-only...
[12:09:12] <MrBluze> yeah cone of silence lol
[12:09:28] <MrBluze> which we never use
[12:09:42] <stderr> Of course not... Never ever... :-)
[12:09:53] <MrBluze> this has worked out better anyway
[12:14:24] <MrBluze> by the way what's the difference between "complete" and "finished" ?
[12:18:33] <MrBluze> ... when u marry the perfect woman, u are 'complete'
[12:18:46] <MrBluze> ... but if u don't marry the perfect woman, u are 'finished'
[12:18:56] <FatPhil> cone of silence ++
[12:19:01] <MrBluze> ... and if you later meet the perfect woman, u are 'completely finished'

[12:31:29] <FatPhil> xlefay: you're running the wrong IdleRPG!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
[12:32:21] <stderr> If we want to involve the users in how things are being done (and we do), the name vote isn't going to be the last vote we're having... I'm reading up on how devotee (DEbian VOTe EnginE) works and will try to make a web version of it.
[12:37:17] <FatPhil> What is the problem with text to which this image is the solution? http://upload.wikimedia.org
[12:38:43] <stderr> 5 (meaning, 5 voters have order of preference: )
[12:38:55] <stderr> A>C>B>E>D
[12:39:22] <FatPhil> congratulations in doing that with text - I never thought it would have been possible!
[12:40:04] <stderr> I think I misunderstood your question... I thought it was a "find a wikipage that uses this image" quest. :-)

[12:42:06] <FatPhil> due to shitty eyesight, I have my web pages scaled up massively. text scales nicely. images scale crappily.
[12:43:06] * FatPhil volunteers to do accessibily testing for SN for the "shitty colourblind eyesight" sector
[12:43:22] * stderr wonders where NCommander were flooding...
[12:43:50] <FatPhil> a veritable tsunami!
[12:50:39] <FatPhil> http://en.wikipedia.org - total bollocks
[12:51:06] <FatPhil> makes absurd assumptions that are wilder than the things it tries to work around
[12:52:57] <FatPhil> then again, condorcet's total bollocks to start with
[12:53:21] <stderr> Why?
[12:53:43] <FatPhil> OK, let's start from the ground up...
[12:54:00] <FatPhil> which bit of the condorcet criterion do you think is non-bollocks?
[12:54:36] <stderr> I only know that Debian uses it. I haven't studied it in details (yet).
[12:55:16] <FatPhil> Start here: http://en.wikipedia.org
[12:55:35] <FatPhil> pay attention to "Voting systems that fail the participation criterion allow a particularly unusual strategy of not voting to, in some circumstances, help a voter's preferred choice win."
[12:55:56] <FatPhil> and All Condorcet methods,[2][citation needed] Bucklin voting,[3] and IRV[4] fail [the participation criterion].
[12:56:32] <FatPhil> it's a totally contrived relationship that has no self-evident need to be true
[12:57:47] <FatPhil> If you word it the right way you can persuade people that it's nice to have. Some people have been suckerred that way
[12:58:59] <stderr> Hmm... Someone should tell Debian that...
[13:00:24] <stderr> I guess it "works" because people generally don't know how others will vote and therefore don't know whether it's better to stay at home...
[13:01:26] <stderr> Can we come up with another form of voting that's better?
[13:01:56] * stderr stopped coding on the web version of devotee...
[13:03:56] <FatPhil> when taking votes from humans - nope.
[13:04:01] <FatPhil> the input is flawed
[13:04:31] <stderr> Ok, so only bots are allowed to vote on any issues from now on.
[13:04:42] <FatPhil> even if you tell them the system's "fair" (for some definition of that word), they'll still vote tactically.
[13:04:51] <stderr> Why didn't I see this earlier? Mar 13 00:54:25 <prospectacle> https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/openstv/
[13:06:10] <stderr> "OpenSTV is the only open-source software that implements the single transferable vote exactly as used by governments, including Scotland and the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts." The only ...? I thought devotee did the same thing and that's open-source too.
[13:09:14] <FatPhil> STV's kinda alright.
[13:09:41] <FatPhil> If devotee does some schwartz/condorcet nonsense, then it's not doing the same thing
[13:10:59] <stderr> Doesn't OpenSTV do Condorcet too?
[13:11:28] <FatPhil> does several schemes
[13:15:37] <stderr> Anyway... Too many voting systems!!! We were told we would have a site name poll within 24 hours and that time has passed a long time ago...
[13:15:56] * stderr starts chanting "We want name poll! We want name poll!" again!
[13:16:31] <FatPhil> wikipedia sucks
[13:17:09] <FatPhil> Every page I look at nowadays has a fundamental error in it.
[13:17:14] <stderr> xlefay: You won't see that again... :-)
[13:17:30] <stderr> FatPhil: [Citation Needed]
[13:17:35] <FatPhil> http://en.wikipedia.org
[13:18:03] <FatPhil> the error? informal proof, part 1
[13:18:36] <FatPhil> sure, it's informal, that doesn't mean it should be meaningless.
[13:23:07] <stderr> Maybe I'm just tired, but what's the problem?
[13:24:00] <FatPhil> unstated ordering of voters.
[13:24:42] <stderr> "Now arrange all the voters in some arbitrary but fixed order, ..."
[13:24:43] <FatPhil> each ordering of voters can yield a different pivotal voter. They're using the term as if it's uniquely defined
[13:26:24] <FatPhil> OK, they state it, but they don't state (in part 1) that the outcome has a dependency on that ordering. It's just a throwaway line as if it's unimportant
[13:26:27] <stderr> You mean if you put the CAB votes before the ACB votes, it takes fewer moves from CAB to BCA be A is kicked out?
[13:26:52] <stderr> ... compared to if ACB votes where before CAB votes.
[13:33:26] <stderr> Part Two doesn't make sense either... "Every voter in Segment Two ranks A above B and B above C."... No, in Part One they said everyone hates B, so B wouldn't be above C in segment two.
[13:33:38] <stderr> Right?
[13:37:42] <FatPhil> it's pretty mangled
[13:38:05] <FatPhil> they want me to assume X and then change X.
[13:41:56] <FatPhil> political theory is about the same level of abuse of mathematics as economics
[13:45:09] <stderr> I think I'll go call my bank again... I called them almost two hours ago and they should have called me back...

[15:58:48] <xlefay> no, just addressing people doesn't appear to be working :-P
[15:58:58] <drcoolbp> who said that?
[15:59:02] <mattie_p> I'll pass it to FatPhil then, since everyone seems to have issues
[15:59:08] <xlefay> Was going to help drcoolbp get auto identified without having to worry about his nick but he's missing my message :P
[15:59:10] <mattie_p> who said what? I didn't see anything
[15:59:48] <drcoolbp> xlefay: I saw that, mIRC keeps changing my entry nick to whatever I'm using currently
[15:59:57] * drcoolbp is waking up still
[16:00:04] <xlefay> drcoolbp: yeah; but did you add SN to your network list?
[16:00:09] <drcoolbp> yes
[16:00:52] <NCommander> drcoolbp, do you use bip?
[16:00:52] <NCommander> or another proxy?
[16:00:59] <drcoolbp> no
[16:01:14] <xlefay> aah drcoolbp then edit the network and set the server pass to mrcoolbp:your_pass (not sure if mIRC supports SASL yet) so that's probably the easiest way
[16:01:30] <drcoolbp> we tried that and it didn't work
[16:01:42] <drcoolbp> my password is *just* my password
[16:01:47] <drcoolbp> only way we made it work
[16:02:01] <xlefay> It's weird how it doesn't work for some, I'll have to look into that further
[16:02:40] <xlefay> I'll ping kobach in a bit, he has mIRC standing by so maybe he can try to replicate your issue
[16:02:52] <drcoolbp> Fatphil: you'll need to .op yourself
[16:03:45] <mrgirlpluggedout> janrinok: Here now, if you're still around yourself.
[16:04:01] <stderr> drcoolbp / xlefay: Maybe change the password to a dummy password, then tcpdump everything to/from drcoolbps IP when he tries to connect and auth?
[16:04:58] <drcoolbp> mrgirlpluggedout: I posted a note on your story style discussion page
[16:05:57] <mrgirlpluggedout> Thanks, drcoolbp. I was initially confused by it, since I first read it to mean that you had already made those changed yourself :)
[16:06:05] <drcoolbp> nah
[16:06:14] <drcoolbp> you were the author, I'll let you handle that
[16:06:28] <xlefay> drcoolbp: pm?
[16:06:31] <drcoolbp> sure
[16:06:40] <mrgirlpluggedout> I agree with your suggestions, and I'll implement them.

[16:29:48] <drcoolbp> ^^^
[16:30:02] * NCommander notes he is quite happy with his day of shopping
[16:30:06] <NCommander> I found an awesome keyring
[16:30:46] <FatPhil> if we could make poll-booth logged-in, and only one vote per uid (capped to the current uid, so people can't create sockpuppets), then surely the page that displays the results can just be disabled during the poll?
[16:30:53] <mechanicjay|zzz> true, but it's not a vote for political office or anything. I feel like we're in danger of some sort of engineers dilema. You know, over think and over plan because. Perfection is the enemy of the good enough and all that.
[16:31:18] * stderr got a sweet keyring too... Just a little bit big... -rw-r--r-- 1 poho poho 28082018 Mar 10 13:37 pubring.gpg
[16:31:22] <NCommander> mechanicjay|zzz, Hrm ... what if we bastardize pollbooth for now
[16:31:24] <stderr> But look at the timestamp!!!
[16:31:36] <NCommander> I *think* I can patch it to do that without too much pain
[16:31:49] <NCommander> though we're going to need some ugly SQL to record votes

[16:33:47] <stderr> So first "SoylentNews or whatever the name might be"-meeting will not take place in Amsterdam or somewhere in the US, but in Billund? :-)
[16:34:00] <mechanicjay|zzz> NCommander: yeah, I don'y know, if we're going to be doing alot of this, it seemslike extending the slash polls to do what we want may be the best long term soln. Though as my nick says, I'm still sleeping, so I'm not sure my opinion should be taken very seriously ATM.

[16:34:47] <stderr> http://www.legoland.dk
[16:34:49] <NCommander> mechanicjay|zzz, well, I think we need something for "now" then get something finalized in the site constituion (likely in the bylaws of the NFP), which will define the specific voting process, methodology, etc.
[16:35:01] <NCommander> FatPhil, I might have seen the LEGO movie more times than is healthy
[16:35:37] <mechanicjay|zzz> NCommander: 3 hrs of sleep = not enough. Getting more coffee is a requirement.
[16:35:56] <mechanicjay|zzz> NCommander: yeah, that makes sense.
[16:36:19] <mechanicjay|zzz> drcoolbp: that's something! Was up till almost 5 fixing the mailing lists after you singed off last night.
[16:36:22] <stderr> Until I heard about the problems with Condorcet, my vote (LOL) was on something like devotee (AKA What Debian uses).
[16:36:26] <NCommander> The other thing is that if we use pollbooth on the site, it currently is only limited one
[16:36:41] <NCommander> stderr, I was unaware of the problems of Condorcet
[16:36:47] * NCommander actually setup debvotee once ...
[16:36:52] <drcoolbp> mechanicjay|zzz: the changepassword success page should redirect to login page
[16:36:57] * NCommander has setup most of the Debian infrastructure at one point or another
[16:37:02] <stderr> Me too until FatPhil told me.
[16:37:40] <mechanicjay|zzz> drcoolbp: yeah, but the behavior is inconsistent I found. After changing and going back in withough a browser restart you may get a 404.
[16:37:51] <drcoolbp> ah
[16:37:58] <mechanicjay|zzz> Though, I might have been a special case because I was testing with a couple different accounts.
[16:38:07] <drcoolbp> maybe just a message that says "you may need to login again"
[16:38:40] <mechanicjay|zzz> I'm going to grab the lastest release of the plugin when I get a chance, what's running is the version that came bundled with postfixadmin -- there may be a fix or a newer release

[16:39:10] * NCommander grumbles
[16:39:13] <stderr> FatPhil: The problem with Condorcet, is it still there, if people don't know ahead of time what others will vote? Wouldn't it most of the time make most sense to vote on your candidates instead of not voting at all?
[16:39:16] <NCommander> Dealing with slash gives me indigestion

[16:44:27] <NCommander> paulej72, ping, what do we have on the dev hopper?
[16:45:50] <FatPhil> no voting system's perfect in everybody's eyes.
[16:46:04] <FatPhil> Some features are more important than others to different people.
[16:47:22] <drcoolbp> true, but I'd rather have something that didn't explicitly say "don't use for anyting important unless you are insane"
[16:47:34] <NCommander> what drcoolbp said
[16:47:36] <drcoolbp> (paraphrased)
[16:48:06] <stderr> Can we, as a start, name the features we want and what we don't want?
[16:50:38] <stderr> I would like: Result unknown until voting is over... One vote per users (but maybe allow users to change their vote, i.e. forget their old vote, before the voting is over?)... Only allowed signed-in users with a "low enough" uid to vote...
[16:52:00] <stderr> Depending on the voting system we choose "one vote" doesn't mean "one X on the ballot"... It could be "one ordered list of choices" or "One yes/no answer per candidate" or whatever the voting system is using...
[16:52:02] <NCommander> stderr, my thoughts here is we can set the max UID, and min karma requirements in the pollbooth creation options. Show the option you voted for, allow vote cancellation, show totals when polls close.
[16:52:26] <NCommander> stderr, well, my quick and dirty thought here to rewrite parts of pollbooth as our stopgap
[16:52:32] <NCommander> Which would be "winner-takes-all" system
[16:52:51] <NCommander> Once we're got the pressure to let up a bit, we can sit down and rewrite something better
[16:52:52] <mattie_p> I suspect we won't get a winner in the first round though
[16:53:16] <NCommander> mattie_p, then pair two names off against each other like a championship, and rotate the poll daily
[16:53:19] <stderr> Do we want something like "md5sum(secret+uid+vote)" so people can check if their vote was counted? (Debian does something like that for some elections as far as I know.)
[16:53:22] <NCommander> We'll have a name in two weeks :-P
[16:53:44] <NCommander> stderr, to be published at the end of the election?
[16:53:50] <mattie_p> march madness for site name? it could work, I guess
[16:54:13] <NCommander> mattie_p, I'm not super happy about it, but I'm coming up short in sitenames
[16:54:31] <NCommander> er
[16:54:37] <NCommander> coming up short in quick to implement ideas
[16:54:44] <stderr> NCommander: Yes. Something like "md5sum#0 voted geekcard, nerdcard", "md5sum#1 voted baconnews"...

[16:55:44] <NCommander> the only bits of information we have is user+uid+email (which may be public)
[16:56:32] <stderr> When you say "two names off against each other", do you mean we start with 8 names, then have 4 pairs and eliminate 4 names... Then have 2 pair between the remaining 4 names... etc.
[16:56:36] <stderr> Or what?
[16:57:00] <mattie_p> that is one option
[16:57:01] <NCommander> stderr, ding ding ding. If you've ever seen the GamesFAQ poll
[16:57:04] <stderr> NCommander: That's the "secret" part of the md5sum(secret+uid+vote).
[16:57:07] <NCommander> when the vote most awesome character
[16:57:13] <NCommander> stderr, how do we generate a secret?
[16:57:22] <stderr> random?
[16:57:40] <NCommander> The problem with doing max ID is that for the next election
[16:57:46] <NCommander> a ton of sleeper accounts are going to come out of nowhere
[16:58:12] <stderr> True, so we need the "good karma"...
[16:58:23] <NCommander> So you get an account up to 50, then let it set
[16:58:24] <stderr> "Active" isn't enough cause that means SPAM!!!
[16:58:29] <NCommander> We need a karma aging system :-/
[16:58:37] <stderr> Doesn't karma drop after a while?
[16:58:44] <NCommander> Nope
[16:58:55] <stderr> Mine dropped at one point and I don't think I got that many -1's...
[16:59:45] <stderr> Is karma--; once a day too much? Once a week?
[17:00:27] <stderr> If(karma>0) that is... :-)
[17:01:19] <NCommander> I feel karma should age towards 0
[17:01:29] <NCommander> So negative karma goes away, postive karma inflates
[17:01:48] <NCommander> We could drop .5 a point per day, the same as one negative moderation

[17:09:10] <NCommander> mattie_p, I didn't write the damn thing :-/
[17:09:25] <mattie_p> let's see, I want to store a number between -10 (or whatever) and 50. I know, lets use a float!

[17:09:52] <stderr> mattie_p: How else would you store karma=e or karma=pi?
[17:09:54] <NCommander> You can set every moderation to have a different value
[17:09:57] <mattie_p> Even an int gives better, and instead of capping at 50 with a decimal place,
[17:10:00] <NCommander> So you could make float be .75
[17:10:05] <NCommander> er
[17:10:11] <NCommander> Make funny be worth .75 karma

[17:10:22] <NCommander> Oh
[17:10:26] <NCommander> And those are a table in the DB :-)
[17:10:28] <mattie_p> yeah, but with int just multiply the decimal by 10 or 100 and it still works out
[17:10:31] <NCommander> They're not hardcoded
[17:10:42] <mattie_p> I think it can be changed in backslash, IIRC
