12:47 Amit bye gmcharlt have a nice weekend
12:48 gmcharlt thanks, you too
14:13 slef updated the progress chart on[…]opment:roadmap3.2 to something that's all in one image
14:15 gmcharlt slef: thanks
15:40 slef troll troll troll troll troll troll troll troll troll troll
15:40 slef (to the tune of "spam spam spam spam")
15:52 slef to be clear, I don't mean mine or thd's posts
15:53 thd slef: what do you mean?
15:55 slef I feel that josh's announcement is trying to start some arguments
15:55 slef particularly after how he's replied
15:55 thd slef: I am trying to stop some arguments and have been for a few weeks now:)
15:56 thd or at least defuse the arguments to a calm rational tone
16:03 pianohacker Bleh, has gone from having a minor style bug on the front page to crashing my firefox
16:24 pianohacker slef: Do you have Firefox with firebug available?
16:29 slef pianohacker: maybe somewhere
16:29 slef pianohacker: currently invoicing so can't mess my browser up right now
16:30 pianohacker Just curious because I think I've figured out a simple solution to the "Features" visual bug on (removing the height: property from #news)
16:31 atz pianohacker: FF2 or 3?
16:31 pianohacker FF#
16:31 pianohacker 3, rather
16:34 slef blah... just seen josh's latest "all your website are belong to us" email
16:36 slef really annoyed by it
16:36 slef not replying yet
16:38 atz plone was going to be a big change, and people were complaining last year that it was overdue.  At least we are past the point of arguing about skins that nobody wants.
16:47 slef atz: yes, long overdue and now 2 days and no edit access to fix the bugs with
16:48 atz so?
16:48 slef seems a crazy way to carry on
16:48 atz it's not "out" yet
16:48 slef but it will be this weekend
16:48 slef according to the announcement, at least
16:49 atz yeah, we'll see.  maybe they'll step it back
16:49 slef here's hoping
16:50 slef by the way, I thought I was very kind suggesting I'd been asking for edit access for only just over a week when I found me asking for it back in July 2007 when Plone was first installed...
16:50 slef (almost certainly a different Plone)
16:50 atz credit for not giving up
16:53 slef In the words of former British PM John Major: "We've got out our backs against the wall. Now's the time to turn and fight." There's nothing like banging your head against a wall.
16:54 atz hah... is that quoted as a famous funny misstatement?
16:54 atz uk politicians sound smarter than ours, even when we're comparing dumbass things they say
16:56 gmcharlt which is why broadcasts of PM's question time have a small but avid following in the US
17:00 slef no, it's quite a hard quote to find
17:00 slef trouble is less stupid things to say mean fewer satirical mashups and nothing quite like The Daily Show
17:01 slef Conservatives did go through about six years of saying really stupid things though
17:01 slef that was Major's rallying cry as they slumped to defeat in the 1997 election
17:02 slef they fought the 2001 election with the slogan "we're thinking what you're thinking" which was gold for the comedians ("you what? I was thinking about biscuits. If you want to run the country, I hope you're thinking about something more important than hob-nobs."
17:07 pianohacker slef: does the uk have any cute, shiny, don't look at the economy plz stories like the Obama dog saga was?
17:21 slef pianohacker: our lot keep falsifying their expense claims to distract from the economy
17:21 slef pianohacker: best one yet: Home Secretary's expense claim for some pay-per-view porno watched by her husband
17:22 pianohacker hehehe
17:38 pianohacker Have to wonder how intentional that is
18:36 brendan good morning #koha
18:37 brendan fires last night starting heading towards us.  but the winds changed this morning and it's somewhat clear overhead
18:40 gmcharlt brendan: glad to hear they ended up staying away from you
18:40 gmcharlt I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you
18:40 brendan thanks gmcharlt
18:41 brendan fingers crossed here too.
