#ossasepia Logs for 24 Dec 2019

April 21st, 2020 by Diana Coman
whaack: diana_coman: EOD Report: Completed my writing assignment which took about 3.5 hours, made my appearance at the bday party which was ~2hours and I credited my Spanish study, did 6h of saltmines, and did some work on the fleet project. I made this script (don't click if you just ate, you may yack a little) http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=Il5w which is scraping for all the channels on netsplit.de's site [02:21]
diana_coman: http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/21/ossasepia-logs-for-23-Dec-2019#1013859 - sounds very nice! [04:50]
ossabot: Logged on 2019-12-23 21:55:17 dorion_road: jfw spent the past weekend here in vt, I took him on a couple hikes and countryside drives. we made the most out of the little to do here. [04:50]
diana_coman: whaack: why scrape the chans from netsplit.de though? doesn't each network have some cmd to get the full list? [04:51]
diana_coman: ie scrape the network list, sure but why chans? [04:51]
diana_coman: whaack: btw have you seen http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-12-24#1956017 ? it was for you after all! [04:53]
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-12-24 mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-12-23#1955954 was re ztkfg.com/2019/12/finding-meaning-in-a-deterministic-world-part-3/ btw, nfi why i thought it's self-obvious yest. [04:53]
diana_coman: hm, that was a bit too quick, Nemo_bis! [08:21]
diana_coman: whaack: do take out the pagination of comments on your blog, it's useless and it even gets in the way (there's some setting from the dashboard, somewhere) [09:23]
bvt: dorion_road: ty, holidays (well, a short trip rather) were very nice. [09:35]
bvt: I have a question to the BUILD document: what does 'Install package signing key(s) in installer/ and update installer/initramfs.list.sh' refer to? is it a TODO item or something i am supposed to do? [09:36]
whaack: diana_coman: I'm curious, how did you know I had pagination of comments enabled? It was set to paginate at 50 comments and afaik I don't I have an article with that many comments [12:32]
diana_coman: whaack: the link for comments contains "page-bla" or similar. [12:32]
whaack: diana_coman: ah okay [12:35]
whaack: diana_coman: For freenode I found the command /msg alis list you have to feed it a regex and it only returns a maximum of 60 channels [12:47]
diana_coman: whaack: iirc there was something like /list directly; granted this was some... uhm, 15 years ago so if you are indeed sure that's all there is, I suppose you'll have to work around the idiocy. [12:54]
dorion_road: bvt that step isn't necessary. jfw can correct me if I'm wrong, but what he has in mind there is a way for a package to be built on one system, signed and then deploy that package across multiple machines. [12:58]
whaack: diana_coman: ah nope /list seems to work [12:58]
diana_coman: jfw: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-12-24#1956026 [13:07]
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-12-24 diana_coman: jfw: Keksum's 3rd genesis is now signed and mirrored; as you've gathered already the previous comments on your article directly, I linked that and there's no need that I see for an additional article; also, you messed up something with your Keksum's article title now. [13:07]
whaack: diana_coman: and i did notice http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-12-24#1956017 last night. i was surprised it was not from confusion from both lobbes and i having gone from blog.lobbesblog and whaacked to krankendenken and ztkfg respectively. now I should either change my theme or somehow get my widgets on the side for my individual articles. [13:08]
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-12-24 mp_en_viaje: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-12-23#1955954 was re ztkfg.com/2019/12/finding-meaning-in-a-deterministic-world-part-3/ btw, nfi why i thought it's self-obvious yest. [13:08]
diana_coman: dorion_road: btw, re Kant, if you just start reading philosophy, I recommend you start with Popper at least, it'll be both easier to follow and of more immediate interest to you I'd think. [13:09]
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-12-23 dorion_road: Unfortunately I've not yet read much Kant, though I know I need to. [13:09]
diana_coman: for that matter the recommendation holds for anyone else interested ( whaack jfw shrysr ?) [13:09]
diana_coman: whaack: well, if you don't ack, how would one know you noticed? why didn't you simply say thank you there or something? ack is not only for me/here, obviously. [13:10]
whaack: diana_coman: ah just because of the inertia of self voicing...i'll get to it now [13:11]
whaack: diana_coman: and I will gladly add Popper to the reading queue [13:12]
diana_coman: I should add I suppose that Popper is more of a historian of science rather than philosopher in a classical sense; so perhaps not as much starting on philosophy proper; still an easier introduction on that path I think. [13:14]
diana_coman: ha, forgot lobbes ^ [13:18]
trinque: http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/21/ossasepia-logs-for-23-Dec-2019#1013841 << going to spell it out in a piece I've got baking after I finish the one for the OS gents. [13:50]
ossabot: Logged on 2019-12-23 06:21:20 diana_coman: trinque: I'd be very glad to discuss with you the tmsr-os as business really and I quite want to know how you actually see it/what you have in mind currently about it. [13:50]
diana_coman: trinque: sounds good; I'll read it. [13:52]
trinque: what concerns me about the former is I hear a lot of grand, elevated language that reminds me of some folks in the last batch, here http://dorion-mode.com/2019/11/implementing-tmsr-os/ [13:52]
trinque: and not a lot of mature process [13:52]
trinque: "here's a thing we were asked to do, the republic is very important, it has some things like V, and now lets dole out work" [13:52]
trinque: so I'm laying out the shape of such work, can be taken or left when it's done. [13:53]
trinque: if it continues as it is, "here are the things we need and therefore" it's towards-purpose, and success will be therefore accidental if success comes. [13:55]
diana_coman: trinque: I can see what you mean; there are some differences in this case though too :) but I think laying out the shape of such work as you see it would be very useful indeed. [13:55]
whaack: I discovered today you can go to Appearance->Widgets and then click the "edit" button on Recent Posts under Current Widgets and change the title to, for example, "Recent Articles" [18:59]
whaack: diana_coman: EOD Report: I spent most of my day working on my article. It took roughly 5-6 hours. I've only done about 2 hours of saltmines, and my neighbor stopped by and invited me to Christmas Eve dinner with her family, which I think is right to accept. I will consider that Spanish study again, and just go short on my saltmines hours for the week. [21:58]
whaack: diana_coman: and btw, Merry Christmas! [21:59]
