akgraner:-/ yep00:06
elkyThere's a special place in the deepest reaches of hell reserved for that man. Really.00:07
elkyIdleOne, no less.00:10
elkyIdleOne, oh, you don't knwo who sam is.00:10
IdleOneelky: no idea00:10
elkya faux journalist who works for itwire.com. he's probably best described with a word I discovered via jdub: trollumnist00:11
IdleOnei guess he is a jerk00:11
elkythat's putting it mildly, but yes.00:12
valoriewhat did he post, elky?00:17
elkyI'm PMing the link to those who ask, who haven't found it via the itwire.com front page.00:18
valoriegeez, a FOSS gossip columnist00:21
valorieI guess we really are growing00:21
elkyoh he's been around for like forever00:21
elkypeople allege he used to be good, but um, I believe his fu has slipped00:21
IdleOnewell I read the article. First time I ever read anything from him and I am not familiar with Jono's comments or elky's blog post Sam is referring to. Seems to me like he is probably a jackass00:24
elkyhe's really no more a journalist than roy schetzowitz is. these days, his research is approximately on par quality wise.00:25
valoriehopefully people ignore the acid00:26
valorieanyway, dinner.....00:26
elkyif you go through his other writings, you can find the piece last week in which he decreed lucid unfit because "sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" complained about lack of root for the second part of that command.00:27
IdleOnewell if he understood what && does he may not complain00:28
elkyhe blamed the man pages for lying to him iirc00:29
IdleOne&& if and when and only when the previous command completes run following command00:29
IdleOnethe following command being an sudo command should ask for auth imho00:30
elkyyes, but that's not how "ive been using debian for fifty million years" genius boy interpreted it.00:31
elky(*not actually real quote, but sure as heck real attitude)00:32
elkyanyway, i'm tired of talking about him, lets move on00:32
IdleOneelky if I was you I wouldn't waste any more energy on it.00:32
IdleOneyou type faster then I do :P00:32
IdleOneok 3 things left to do today: 1) call the kids 2) eat something 3) go to sleep00:33
IdleOneI'll be back later :P00:33
* pleia2 hugs elky 04:54
elkypleia2, speeeecial place in hell for that guy, srsly.05:07
pleia2yeah, I don't think anyone takes him seriously anymore05:08
elkymy response to him was intended to make him seem as jackassy as possible, since I /knew/ he was going to do this.05:09
elkyhence it was not a plead, it was a stern directive.05:10
valorieonce he gets predictable, he'll lose readers even with his pot-stirring05:10
elkyoh, he's been losing readers since he before he lambasted the intern that swore in a blog post in the direction of stallman05:11
elkyand his recent outburst at matt garrett for quoting him... hilarious05:12
elkybut srsly, his best so far has to be the sudo gaffe late last week05:12
rwwI rarely see positive things in the comments on his articles. He doesn't have readers because people think he's a good journalist, he has readers because he generates controversy.05:12
rwwelky: His reply in the article's comments makes no sense :(05:13
elkyoh, he has a few fans. one tried to use my blog comments to spamzor his own blog around05:13
