[13:24:11] <Mattie> not yet
[13:24:43] <Mattie> im waiting outside the recovery until i can go in
[13:25:30] <xlefay> understandable, hopefully everything will turn out fine :)
[13:27:00] <xlefay> dealing with an emergency of my own, bbl
[13:29:38] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[13:30:29] <Mattie> ok, dont lose your pancreas
[13:41:32] <Bytram> Mattie: hey! saw your journal article, and then your e-mails. Yikes!
[13:42:03] <Bytram> Mattie: My heart goes out to you and the little one. You're all in my thoughts and prayers.
[13:42:13] <Mattie> yeah, its all a blur
[13:42:21] <Mattie> thanks
[13:43:05] <Bytram> she is so fortunate to have you there for her!
[13:43:18] <Mattie> im going nuts with waiting, tho
[13:43:49] <Bytram> I bet that within a month she'll be running around again and driving you nuts!
[13:44:04] <Mattie> i hope so
[13:44:04] <Bytram> oh yeah! waiting sucks.
[13:44:34] <Bytram> I had a hernia repaired as a teen; a month later at scout camp I did the mile swim. She'll be fine!
[13:45:42] <Mattie> im sure she will be
[13:48:49] <Mattie> anyway, cant chat long, trying to see my daughter
[13:49:29] <Bytram> that's fine. you take care of her and we'll take care of things on this end. give her a hug for me, k?
[13:52:52] <Mattie> as soon as i can i will

[15:26:30] <paulej72> NCommander: I just sent a email to the list regarding slashcode branches. I would appreciate your input.
[15:28:01] <NCommander> paulej72, you're in the right ballpark, though with git, master should generally be the tip of development
[15:28:08] <NCommander> master == trunk
[15:28:22] <NCommander> (it works fine, but most people seem to expect master == dev)

[15:29:04] <janrinok> hi guys
[15:29:47] <paulej72> NCommander: then what do you suggest for easily applying multiple test branches on dev.SN?
[15:30:23] <NCommander> paulej72, master which is the tip of the tree, and production_next
[15:30:34] <NCommander> paulej72, we branch off from production next to make a release
[15:30:44] <NCommander> paulej72, git is decentralized; stuff isn't merged until its ready to go in all together

[16:14:39] <Landon> god you guys are chatty cathies
[16:14:50] <Landon> I need to make a folder for all of the list talk now
[16:21:44] <janrinok> Landon: Hi, hows things?
[16:26:15] <Landon> trying to figure out how to be a responsible computer user
[16:26:23] <Landon> when my ISP has 300gb data limits
[16:26:30] <Landon> I still have about 2.5tb to back up :(
[16:29:45] <janrinok> lol - my maths is not good but I don't think it is going to work.....
[16:30:26] <Landon> haha yeah.....
[16:30:41] <Landon> I'll keep chugging away until I get an actual "Hey, you need to stop this"
[16:30:59] <janrinok> Will that be verbally or in the form of a bill?
[16:31:00] <Landon> the email I got last night was basically "You should consier moving to our top of the line plan! You get a whole 400gb cap!"
[16:31:13] <Landon> verbally
[16:31:49] <janrinok> that's a lot of pron^H^H^H^H valuable data to back up...
[16:32:14] <Landon> well
[16:32:25] <Landon> I wasn't going to back up my personal dvd rips
[16:32:26] <Landon> but dangit
[16:32:32] <janrinok> lol
[16:32:32] <Landon> I spent a lot of time making sure those were perfect
[16:32:36] <Landon> those are getting backed up
[16:32:55] <janrinok> how about buying just 1 more 2tb hard drive?
[16:33:03] <Landon> oh, I want an offsite backup
[16:33:07] <Landon> I still have a few tb spare
[16:33:18] <janrinok> post it to a 'good friend'
[16:34:00] <Landon> would be continuously updating it though :)
[16:35:04] <janrinok> would it be worth arranging with a friend for him to run a server for your backups and you run one for him?
[16:35:14] <Landon> that'd still go out via the internet though :(
[16:35:53] <janrinok> True - I'm not gloating but I've not seen a data cap for a zillion years.
[16:36:08] <Landon> although, crashplan does have a seed drive service
[16:36:15] <Landon> they send the drive, I send it back filled up
[16:36:25] <janrinok> that sounds like a smart move
[16:38:12] <Landon> youch, $130 and you don't even get to keep it
[16:38:54] <janrinok> er, perhaps not so good an idea after all - what do you reckon your data is worth to you personally?
[16:39:23] <Landon> it's my life :)
[16:39:24] <Landon> honestly
[16:39:29] <Landon> if I was to lose everything, no backups
[16:39:32] <Landon> I would probably switch careers

[16:39:47] <janrinok> so $130 is not too much then?
[16:40:02] <Landon> $130 itself is a risk tradeoff
[16:40:15] <Landon> betting against the chance that my NAS won't last another year until it's backed up
[16:41:29] <janrinok> I have a copy of my data in an hermetically sealed package buried in the garden. The house might burn down but the data would survive. It's not hidden, but equally it't not obvious either, and I use full disk encryption. It lives under a stone garden feature.
[16:41:52] <janrinok> but I'm known for being a bit weird....
[16:42:01] <Landon> that is a bit weird :P
[16:42:11] <Landon> are you in a region prone to earthquakes?
[16:42:24] <janrinok> no - NW France.
[16:42:35] <Landon> I'm not really familiar with natural disasters in europe
[16:43:06] <janrinok> Europe _is_ a natural disaster, but quakes and volcanoes are unheard of where I live.
[16:43:11] <Landon> hah
[16:43:15] <Landon> tornadoes?
[16:44:03] <janrinok> Nope, strongest wind ever recorded was 142 kph, only a few months back. Brought down a few trees and a bit of house damage but otherwise fine.
[16:44:18] <Landon> golly
[16:44:23] <Landon> I'll go pack my bags and head over
[16:44:27] <Landon> I'm in tornado alley
[16:44:55] <janrinok> I can see that being a problem. Even finding where your house used to be could be a problem....
[16:45:16] <Landon> not too long ago a mile wide tornado took out an entire town here :\
[16:46:12] <Landon> https://en.wikipedia.org
[16:46:18] <Landon> estimated 2.7km diameter
[16:46:25] <janrinok> Yes, watched that on the news.
[16:47:26] <janrinok> I spent a bit of time in Omaha, Nebraska. I was also impressed by the 'dimple look' cars after a passing hailstorm
[16:47:47] <Landon> heh
[16:48:01] <Landon> luckily I've never had that problem
[16:48:07] <Landon> despite not having a garage for the past 7 years
[16:48:13] <janrinok> Garages were selling forecourt cars off at rediculously low prices.
[16:48:56] <janrinok> Sorry, that should be auto dealerships etc...
[16:49:18] <janrinok> I'm forgetting to translate nowadays!

[16:51:48] <mrcoolbp> not bad, coming along
[16:51:57] <mrcoolbp> and with you?
[16:52:32] <janrinok> I'm still working at that wiki article - it is becoming something of a major document. I might divide it up into smaller sections. Other than that, I'm good.
[16:53:17] <mrcoolbp> I suggest asking for input from some other editors as well
[16:53:27] * mrcoolbp gets coffee
[16:53:59] <janrinok> I have and will again, but I would like to get the first draft finished so that it becomes more clear where to put the divisions.
[16:54:24] <mrcoolbp> cool, keep up the good work
[16:55:06] <janrinok> I've just caught up with the news from mattie_p - I hope that everything is going well there.
[17:01:05] <mrcoolbp> yeah I just saw that, my thoughts are with them
[17:01:45] <janrinok> but things are looking a little more positive and the young are remarkably resilient.

[17:26:39] <mattie_p> thanks, janrinok, just got home, mrs mattie_p is at the hospital and taking over the shift

[17:27:31] <mattie_p> thanks, mrcoolbp
[17:28:10] <janrinok> mattie_p: good to hear - thanks for the update.
[17:28:54] <mattie_p> so surgery was successful, a little less than half her pancreas is removed (due to injury from bike accident)
[17:29:12] <mattie_p> no other internal injuries were noted
[17:29:28] <mattie_p> she is in recovery right now
[17:30:42] <mattie_p> I got about 1 hour of sleep while she was in surgery, so I'm pretty beat
[17:32:39] <mrcoolbp> wow, glad to hear the situation is improving!
[17:35:14] <mattie_p> yeah
[17:35:37] <xlefay> mattie_p, that's great to here :)
[17:36:00] <mattie_p> I have no idea what side effects missing half a pancreas can cause, so off to do research after making some more phone calls and getting some zzzzs
[17:36:29] <mattie_p> If someone could look that up for me that would be awesome, but no worries if you can't
[17:36:37] <mattie_p> anyway, time for phone

[18:51:45] <paulej72> mattie_p: I gad everything is OK and I am also gad to hear the problem was doe to a physical accident rather than someother type of ailment
[19:08:33] <mattie_p> mrcoolbp can't rest yet, winding down from experience. paulej72: so am I, in a sense. at least there is an end to it
[19:08:55] <xlefay> mattie_p, understandable. She's doing good now right?
[19:08:57] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p we are here for you
[19:09:21] <xlefay> It's moment likes those that really make you realize how precious family is
[19:09:22] <mattie_p> she's doing a lot better, sitting up, complaining,
[19:09:40] <xlefay> That's a good sign :)
[19:09:48] <mattie_p> yes, complaining is a good sign'
[19:10:35] <xlefay> In a few years time, you'll still remember how this experience was but she probably won't even think about it anymore
[19:10:54] <xlefay> funny how life works like that, I'm glad she's doing better, must be giving you some peace of mind too

[22:52:17] <Dopefish> but now with my job transition completed I have more time now
[22:52:37] <Dopefish> I missed you guys too
[22:55:11] <janrinok> Job transistion - that sounds like something major?
[22:56:34] <janrinok> or is that an American term for something I should know? Dopefish
[22:58:07] <Dopefish> well what I mean is I got a promotion
[22:58:26] <Dopefish> but it was in a totally new field and I needed to study up for the position
[22:58:27] <janrinok> congratulations - well deserved I'm sure!
[22:58:59] <janrinok> no wonder you were busy
[22:59:36] <Dopefish> Thanks yeah but I'm glad to be back here. Also I've lately been getting a very itchy noggin wanting to get back into writing again. I'm going to see about making some submissions for SN as well
[23:00:42] <janrinok> we could always use more - especially with the weekend ahead. It has been quite a dull time at weekends.
[23:01:31] <Dopefish> yeah I figured add much
[23:01:46] <Dopefish> I must say... I am unduly impressed with how far the site has come
[23:01:55] <Dopefish> and that it hasn't imploded :D
[23:02:24] <mrcoolbp> not yet...
[23:03:02] <janrinok> each weekend we've had to divide our time between finding stories and posting them. The only rule is that you shouldn't release your own stories. I think that you were here when that was mentioned, but it seems like ages ago now.
[23:03:07] <Dopefish> well I hope it doesn't... now that sanity has finally come to order
[23:03:14] <Dopefish> yeah
[23:03:17] <Dopefish> that's fair
[23:04:58] <janrinok> we actually had a 72 hour period where every story had 2 eds sign it off, but I don't think we can do it all the time with so many people away doing other things.
