[16:19:34] <mrcoolbp> oi mechanicjay
[16:20:09] <mrcoolbp> ohio gozaimas matt_
[16:20:20] <mechanicjay> hello mrcoolbp
[16:20:59] <mrcoolbp> genki desu
[16:20:59] <NCommander> hi
[16:21:16] <mrcoolbp> matt_ my japanese needs some work
[16:21:22] <NCommander> Matt_ I'm in route to back bay
[16:21:38] <Bytram> .voice matt_
[16:21:38] -!- mode/#staff [+v matt_] by juggler
[16:21:48] <matt_> Bytram, thanks =)
[16:21:50] <Bytram> matt_: Hi!
[16:21:55] <matt_> Bytram, hi!
[16:22:09] <Bytram> no problem; wanted to know what I was missing! =)
[16:22:15] <mrcoolbp> lol
[16:22:17] <mrcoolbp> sorry
[16:22:27] <mrcoolbp> matt_ you really should register that nick....
[16:22:58] <matt_> mrcoolbp, i registered it, but i don't automatically have voice anymore =(
[16:23:08] <mrcoolbp> hmm, might have expired
[16:23:42] <mrcoolbp> matt, you are no longer registered, there's an expiriy period of ~1month
[16:23:57] <Bytram> that explains the lack of a cloak, too.
[16:24:24] <matt_> when i signed in Nickserv said: "-NickServ- This nickname is registered. Please choose a different nickname, or identify via /msg NickServ identify <password>."
[16:24:33] <matt_> then i identified successfully :)
[16:24:38] <mrcoolbp> oh
[16:24:40] <mrcoolbp> hmmm
[16:25:23] <mrcoolbp> matt_ yup, confirmed, we need to get you a cloak
[16:25:44] <mrcoolbp> matt_ xlefay is away for a day or two, maybe Landon can help
[16:27:42] <matt_> Landon, could you help me get a cloak? also could you let me know what a cloak is? ;)
[16:28:18] <Bytram> matt_: looks like you need to do (or have done) a vhost command; I'm looking for more info
[16:28:32] <matt_> Bytram, thanks!
[16:28:37] <Bytram> np
[16:29:46] <Bytram> as far as I knwo (which is NOT a lot), a vhost cloaks part of your incoming IP address info.
[16:30:07] <Bytram> .op
[16:30:07] -!- mode/#staff [+o Bytram] by juggler
[16:30:18] <Bytram> okay, that's a good start! =)
[16:31:53] <Bytram> looks like I need to take a look in another place; don't want to cause more harm than good, yanno?
[16:31:53] <Bytram> brb
[16:34:22] <NCommander> slight change in plans
[16:34:37] <NCommander> decided to go to south station if I need to wait an hour
[16:34:40] <NCommander> mrcoolbp
[16:34:50] <mrcoolbp> okay
[16:35:38] <mrcoolbp> bytram: http://www.stack.nl
[16:36:30] <Bytram> matt_: try entering this command: /hs request vhost:Soylent/Staff/Management/$account
[16:36:54] <matt_> "-HostServ- The vhost provided is invalid."
[16:37:21] <Bytram> blegh. Looks like I don't have the privs required to enable it, either. :/
[16:37:49] <Bytram> I suspect that mattie_p or paulej72 might be able to help, but my magic has done just run out. Sorry!
[16:37:50] <Bytram> .deop
[16:37:50] -!- mode/#staff [-o Bytram] by juggler
[16:38:27] <matt_> Bytram, np. thanks for the help.
[16:39:40] <Bytram> you're welcome!
[16:40:54] <Landon> matt_: knowledge has been purged, sorry :(
[16:41:07] <matt_> Bytram, ooh, it kind of worked when I did "/hs request Soylent.Staff.Management"
[16:41:26] <matt_> now it says: "-HostServ- You have requested vhost Soylent.Staff.Management."
[16:42:03] <matt_> i think the request may now need oper approval
[16:42:03] <mattie_p> hrm
[16:42:21] <mattie_p> I suspect it not just op approval, but irc admin approval
[16:42:50] <mattie_p> I think xlefay was granting that access on the charybdadis admin side
[16:43:07] <Bytram> mattie_p: yup.
[16:43:11] <mattie_p> I don't know enough about IRC to help any, sorry, matt_
[16:43:23] <mattie_p> I'm not an IRC admin on the server
[16:43:28] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p: you'd think you or I would've gotten that admin status eventually
[16:43:34] <matt_> mattie_p, np.
[16:43:40] <Bytram> this might help: try this cmd: /hs offerlist
[16:43:58] <matt_> "-HostServ- End of list"
[16:44:02] <mrcoolbp> lol
[16:44:08] <mattie_p> yeah, nothing there
[16:44:59] <Bytram> you may need to look in the, umm, "SoylentNews" , ummm, "parent" of this this channel.
[16:45:19] <mattie_p> mrcoolbp, have you emailed xlefay lately?
[16:45:37] <mattie_p> we might try that to see if we can get him back for a bit to help with some IRC stuff
[16:45:42] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p: we found him yesterday!
[16:45:51] <mattie_p> oh, nifty! I'm glad he's ok
[16:46:09] * mrcoolbp needs to try emailing some of the other's we lost
[16:46:37] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p: he said he didn't have access to a computer, but should be returning in a few days if all goes well
[16:46:56] <Bytram> Okay, I found some more stuff; from an old .topic I've got: For a cloak: /hs request what.ever.vhost.you.want
[16:47:24] <Bytram> and from another place: irc.staff.20140227c.txt:[23:13] <xlefay> As for vhosts/cloaks, people can submit it via /hs request something, pretty much everything's allowed; just /hs waiting; if you see one /hs activate
[16:47:24] <Bytram> nickname; best to run those vhosts through a common sense filter though.
[16:47:25] <mattie_p> I just checked, I'm not authorized to activate a vhost
[16:47:29] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: that may not work, I think xlefay changed some server settings
[16:48:15] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: hmmm, request sounds like he'd have to approve it
[16:48:30] * mrcoolbp goes to make breakfast
[16:49:44] <NCommander> arrived at south
[16:49:57] <NCommander> mrcoolbp call me when you can
[16:50:04] <mrcoolbp> sure
[16:50:53] <Bytram> NCommander: Nice! Brings back memories of when I used to work at Fidelity Investments, just up the street at the "Lollipop Building" (there is/was a kinetic sculpture in front of the building)
[16:51:14] <mrcoolbp> NCommander: you may have to call me
[17:04:17] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: interested in getting dinner in/around Cambridge, MA ?
[17:04:54] <mrcoolbp> matt_ the plan is to come back out and meet you in the City for dinner around 5 ish, would that work?
[17:05:00] <matt_> Awesome!
[17:05:35] <mrcoolbp> matt_ though we could probably do better than Chilis
[17:05:44] <mrcoolbp> = )
[17:05:50] <Bytram> mrcoolbp: that might be possible... what/when did you have in mind? And with whom? You and NCommander?
[17:05:57] <matt_> mrcoolbp, how about legal sea foods in kendall?
[17:06:10] <mrcoolbp> matt_ that might work, I'll check with NC
[17:06:15] <NCommander> mmm sea food
[17:06:28] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: with NCommander, matt_, and myself around 5pm ish ?
[17:06:36] * Bytram prefers moofish -- only like fish that go "mooo" ;)
[17:06:49] <matt_> Bytram, they've got a great surf and turf.
[17:06:52] <mrcoolbp> bytram: I think they have steak there
[17:07:18] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p you should probably hop on a plane and meet us out here as well = )
[17:07:33] <Bytram> hmmm, wait a minute... they're STILL there? I worked in that building back in the 80's!!
[17:07:40] <mrcoolbp> lol
[17:07:55] <Bytram> that's on IIRC Broadway?
[17:08:02] <Bytram> mope Main st
[17:08:17] <mrcoolbp> yeah, mainstreet is very melancholy = )
[17:08:28] <Bytram> Is Joyce Chen's 9spelling) still around? Fantastic chinese food
[17:08:30] <NCommander> Is that close to the T?
[17:08:40] <Bytram> there's a red line station right there
[17:08:44] <Bytram> kendall square
[17:08:47] * NCommander needs to get on the orange line to get to his hostel
[17:09:15] <Bytram> that is, IIRC. It's been a LONG time!
[17:10:01] <Bytram> Kendall Square is a stone's throw from MIT
[17:10:54] <NCommander> Ah, I know the area
[17:11:23] <Bytram> that's right off the Longfellow Bridge, just after you cross the Charles River coming from Boston, it would be on the right-hand side.
[17:11:48] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: yeah Kendall stop should still be there
[17:12:12] <NCommander> So, mrcoolbp and I work out our plan, then we get face to face over dinner and figure out how to implement it?
[17:12:18] <matt_> also, there is a giant stainless steel fish sculpture in front of the restaurant :)
[17:13:58] <Bytram> umm, wait a sec. don't hold me to those directions. It's been a few years too many to remember.
[17:15:24] <matt_> Bytram, you are correct. it is basically 50 feet from the "kendall square" stop on the red line.
[17:15:51] <Bytram> whew! Haven't lost it ALL then! =) found this, too: http://kendallsquare.org
[17:17:18] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: so let's shoot for 5:00pm
[17:17:25] <mrcoolbp> matt_ ^
[17:17:48] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: PM me your cell number if you like
[17:18:15] <Bytram> k. I know there is/was a parking garage there (which might be a bit pricey) an other suggestions on where to park?
[17:18:20] <matt_> mrcoolbp, sounds great. I need to sign off soon, so text me if there are any changes? otherwise, I will meet you guys there at 5pm.
[17:18:33] <mrcoolbp> matt_ no problem
[17:18:49] <matt_> Bytram, there is often some metered parking on Ames St., I think it becomes free after 6pm.
[17:20:14] <mattie_p> mrcoolbp don't really have the funds to hop on a plane, much as I'd like to
[17:20:21] <mattie_p> :(
[17:20:26] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p I was mostly joking = (
[17:20:31] <mattie_p> oh, I know
[17:21:00] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p: are you around today if NCommander and I need to bounce some ideas off ya?
[17:21:24] <mattie_p> I should be mostly, just doing some more packing for our move
[17:22:02] <mattie_p> use my name here and I'll respond as I can
[17:22:13] <Bytram> matt_: there was some free on-street parking way back then; I'd rush to get in town by about 6:30am so I could park for free.
[17:23:27] <Bytram> Ames, that's right off mass ave and connects to, umm, broadway? (main?)
[17:24:01] <matt_> Bytram, not quite. it connects broadway and memorial drive.
[17:24:19] <Bytram> ah!!!! right. mem drive, now I remember! THANKS!
[17:24:33] <matt_> Bytram, vassar st. would be a good plan B, as well. you're right about the parking garage being expensive.
[17:24:53] <Bytram> matt_: any idea of what they charge at the garage?
[17:25:46] <matt_> Bytram, depends on how long you stay, but i'm guessing about 25 bucks for a dinner-length stay.
[17:26:01] <Bytram> ouch.
[17:26:06] * Bytram sharpens his teeth.
[17:26:14] <Bytram> =)
[17:26:19] <matt_> yeah, the garage is definitely a plan C.
[17:27:49] <Bytram> matt_: the Cambridgeside Galleria isn't *that* far away, that could be a plan D
[17:28:50] <matt_> Bytram, the galleria is also a pretty expensive garage, iirc, and about a 15min walk.
[17:29:44] <Bytram> that, sounds about right for distance.
[17:30:02] <Bytram> it's coming back to me, slow but sure!
[17:30:07] <mrcoolbp> mattie_p: thanks
[17:31:17] * mrcoolbp dreads trying to park in Cabridge but notes it's not as bad as downtown
[17:31:50] * Bytram same here. Is it too late to change plans to something that is a little more parking friendly?
[17:32:25] <matt_> well... there's always chili's ;-)
[17:32:37] <Bytram> lol!
[17:42:40] matt_ is now known as matt_|afk
[17:49:36] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: it's not Legal Seafood, it's Cambridge in general, I was trying to make it easier for matt_|afk, feel free to suggest something else
[17:50:11] <mrcoolbp> er Boston in general, Cambridge to a slightly lesser extent (Cambridge isn't really that bad)
[17:50:23] <matt_|afk> Bytram, where are you driving from?
[17:50:47] <Bytram> mrcoolbp: thanks for the explanation. no worries! I know/knew cambridge MUCH better than boston and the parking is MUCH better in cambridge.
[17:50:48] <mrcoolbp> Maine
[17:50:57] <Bytram> matt_|afk: ^^^
[17:51:06] <matt_|afk> oh, wow!
[17:51:36] <Bytram> come to think of it, I might swing by natick/framingham to stop at the mall there, first, before coming in town.
[17:51:38] <mrcoolbp> matt_|afk, Maine is big, the southern part is not too far away, Bytram, where are you? Portsmouth?
[17:51:49] <mrcoolbp> Bytram: seriously?
[17:58:36] * mrcoolbp considers a shower
[17:59:59] * Bytram needs one, for sure.
[18:23:49] * mrcoolbp goes to pick up NCommander
[18:23:51] <mrcoolbp> BBL
[18:28:33] <NCommander> mrcoolbp, er, I'm not there yet >.<;
[18:28:48] * mrcoolbp is getting ready to head out the door
[18:29:07] <mrcoolbp> NCommander: you're eta should be 25 minutes
[18:29:27] <NCommander> mrcoolbp, cool
[18:29:32] * NCommander is drafting ideas about subscribership
[18:36:14] <Bytram> NCommander: I'm about to head out the door; give me about 15-20 minutes to reach I95; and another 90-120 for the rest of the trip

[22:24:50] <janrinok> Just for info - if you log on to the site as AC, you do not get an accurate comment count for each story. The latest from NCommander is showing no comments for ACs, but 5 comments when I log on.
[22:38:13] <NCommander> janrinok, .... fuck
[22:38:29] <NCommander> janrinok, works fine here
[22:38:32] <mattie_p> NCommander I thought that was a known memchache issue
