Giant_Anchovy_Of­_Sinatra: this thing is glitchy tonite.
cs: a quick jeraboam of champagne?
||||||||| At 9:34 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Giant_Anchovy_Of­_Sinatra!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
DJTween: Need to put some chamomile on it
cs: that's a lot of champagne.
Dexter Fong: Glitchy, ginchy, it's all gnarly
Merlyn: stop putting weird characters in your login name
||||||||| Catherwood ushers GiantAnchovyOfSumatra into the room, accepts a jar of pennies as a gratuity, mumbles something about 9:34 PM, then departs.
Dexter Fong: In fact, just stop with the wierd characters, period
DJTween: There would be little FST without them, Dex

DJTween: Yeah, FEMA having to get fed by Occupy. Irony
Principalpoop: yes sir, we need more gop Akins and such out in the open lol
DJTween: You bet, P
cs: still no power in rockaway
Dexter Fong: Calling all right wing loonies! The GOP needs you now, more than ever
GiantAnchovyOfSumatra: don't get too excited... Obama's still just "status quo" but these days, that's the best we're gonna do.
Principalpoop: don't stop at abortion, make spilling the seed a crime again also hehehe
DJTween: Calling the right wing Loonies is an insult to Canadians

doctecazoid: the last few weeks have been too fucking intense
doctecazoid: i need a brake
DJTween: Sorry to hear :/
Principalpoop: pull up a chair and sit under it
DJTween: Well, join in the absurdity...
cs: congress of wonders?
Dexter Fong: Go to hawaii and get lei'd
doctecazoid: most thursdays i'm just too fukin trashed to function after 9pm
DJTween: What we're listening to is from the Hour Hour series
cs: they just mentioned john carpenter. i remember his radio show after rfo i i think 67
Dexter Fong: 2/8/70
DJTween: They got you coding your arse off, eh?
doctecazoid: we are all wondering about our congress, that's for sure
DJTween: The Congress Of Wonders
Principalpoop: americans are insane, they hate congress, except their own congressman...
DJTween: Ron Paul gave his farewell address yesterday. Really gave them what-for
doctecazoid: too ate seventy? sounds like a lot to digest.
cs: there were a few comedy groups in those days. none of them are memorable, except the credibility gap and they were never firesign quality
doctecazoid: not coding - testing - and documenting - and helping users
DJTween: You have to take it with a grain of salt, Dex
doctecazoid: he not only gave then what four, he gave them what five!
Dexter Fong: Tkake what Tween?
cs: or a grain of something
DJTween: doctecazoid: too ate seventy? sounds like a lot to digest.
Principalpoop: O I C U 8 1 2
DJTween: Or a spoonful of sugar, as it were
Dexter Fong: Tween: Then you should tell Doc, not me
cs: is yhour brother on line with you, doc?
DJTween: Sorry Dex
Dexter Fong: I ain't eating 70
doctecazoid: no, he's not privy to the chat
DJTween: I were confabused
doctecazoid: he kinda lives in his own private idaho - in ohio
cs: how is lily doing?
Dexter Fong: No acsess in the privy?
Principalpoop: no duck hats
doctecazoid: lili crashed on the couch after putting together yet another stellar meal
cs: yes from her it would be stellar
Principalpoop: Ben Stellar?
doctecazoid: my brother is in awe of her culinary skills - to the surprise of absolutely no one :D
cs: her salmon was better than i thought salmon could be
doctecazoid: yeah brother dave agrees
doctecazoid: my brother lives a very hermetic existence
cs: better hermes than herpes
doctecazoid: i think this trip outside of his comfort zone has been good for him
Principalpoop: thermosity
DJTween: a hermetic seal?
doctecazoid: he pulled me into working on a site for his grandson - kid's got gaucher's disease (not meant to be funny)
doctecazoid: careforcody.com
Dexter Fong: an hermetic seal keeps out the herpes
doctecazoid: i am working on the contributions page now
doctecazoid: will have it done this weekend
DJTween: Sorry to hear about the kid, Doc
cs: sounds like a scene from breaking bad
Principalpoop: great uncle doc
doctecazoid: the more i work with css, the more my appreciation of what it can do grows
doctecazoid: i should not have worked so hard to avoid it for so long
Thweeny: Gaucher's disease - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaucher's_disease
doctecazoid: yep, we have that link on the site tween
Thweeny: Yes, people I know have been singing the praises of CSS
doctecazoid: the kid needs transfusions every two weeks
Thweeny: man...
cs: bummer
DJTween: mildly
doctecazoid: css takes some time to get used to, but once you start getting the hang of it, the more you become aware of what you can do with it
Dexter Fong: Uh...what is CSS?
doctecazoid: and the better your site pages look in browsers
Principalpoop: what did they use to say, learning learning curve like the matterhorn?
doctecazoid: dex: css = cascading style sheets. in layman's terms: it's a separate doc that tells the browser how to render your web page
Dexter Fong: As a certified lei'd man, thanks Doc
doctecazoid: in the old days, the web page contained the page content and all the markup
doctecazoid: with css, you separate the markup from the content
Dexter Fong: Just like high end stores, don't let 'em see the markup
doctecazoid: so for instance, instead of burying info re the font style in your content, you now put your font style in a separate doc - and reference the style in your actual content
doctecazoid: change the font style in the separate doc, and your site content adjusts accordingly
doctecazoid: confused? i know i am...
cs: hey doc, is it possible to take content from a website and put it in a form that it could be accessed off line on an ipad?
Dexter Fong: I like your style Doc, even if I can't see it =))
doctecazoid: cs: for the most part, yes.
doctecazoid: kinda depends on the site content - but if it's static and doesn't rely on pulling info from other live web pages into it, then the ansser is yet
cs: when i was in vegas in feb, i was able to show the folks at fleur what i wrote about them, but the other places didntg have wifi so i couldnt do that
doctecazoid: dex: my fave joke - in the beginning, there was nothing. and god said, let ther be light. and there was still nothing... only now, you could see it.
cs: i'm preparing for next trip
DJTween: doctecazoid: so for instance, instead of burying info re the font style in your content, you now put your font style in a separate doc - and reference the style in your actual content < that's cool, Doc
Principalpoop: the activex and java html 6.0 flash needs to fit in there too
DJTween: kind of like having a linked document which updates another
Dexter Fong: Doc: =))
doctecazoid: once you have all your markup in a separate page from the html, you can built a whole bunch of html pages that get their markup and styles from a single css doc
doctecazoid: change the markup directives in your css doc, and all your html pages change accordingly
DJTween: doctecazoid: once you have all your markup in a separate page from the html, you can built a whole bunch of html pages that get their markup and styles from a single css doc < useful indeed
Principalpoop: soon we have dlls for websites
doctecazoid: no need to e.g. edit every fukin web page if you want to change the font size or face
DJTween: Yeah, great tool
cs: i imagine it would be just a matter of storage
doctecazoid: change the font directive in your css doc from arial to verdana, and presto change-o - all your web pages are now rendered in verdana
Principalpoop: it is all done with smoke and mirrors, grass and cocaine...
Dexter Fong: Es Verdad, dude
Dexter Fong: Poop: Don't forget about the garters
doctecazoid: Principalpoop: the activex and java html 6.0 flash needs to fit in there too << well with html5, it may be a moot point
doctecazoid: or a mute point, if you're hard of heading
doctecazoid: hearing
doctecazoid: heaving
Dexter Fong: head ahead hard, me buckos
Principalpoop: i have no idea i was saying anything, i just strung some internet terms together lol
doctecazoid: healing! that's the ticket!
doctecazoid: you did a fine job, pp
doctecazoid: stringing me along
Dexter Fong: And that's how string theory works, students
Principalpoop: numerical strings verus character strings give me fits 30 years later
cs: i was just teling the chatters about the documentary i just saw about huxley, called huxley on huxley, quite new
DJTween: anybody got any string??
cs: ginzburg appears briefly
Dexter Fong: Don't worry Poop, you'll soon out live that
Principalpoop: ohh string, flaps hands rapidly
cs: i have some sting somewhere
Principalpoop: that is powerful doc, that css stuff
Principalpoop: careful hehe
doctecazoid: yeah - brave new whirled pp
cs: stravinsky on baby food and whiskey was a highlight
cs: or a high ball
doctecazoid: i guess i should mention how we fared through the hurricane
doctecazoid: dodged a major bullet
cs: yes you should
doctecazoid: even though we're 30 ft above and very near long island sound, we did not lose power
Principalpoop: fong told us you had electricity again, that is the biggest deal
cs: other parts of milford not so lucky?
Principalpoop: ahh, ok,
doctecazoid: and there was no flooding or structural damage - just some yard cleanup (branches and crap)
Dexter Fong: Poop: Elaine told us that
Principalpoop: wow
doctecazoid: we were part of the 50% of milford that did *not* lose power
Principalpoop: oops yes fong, ok ok
Principalpoop: stores open, can you get gas?
doctecazoid: in the few days before the hurricane, lines for gas were long
DJTween: Glad to hear that was the extent of damage, Doc
doctecazoid: and at our local station up the street, they only had premium
