lobbes: http://logs.ericbenevides.com/log/ossasepia/2020-04-26#1025274 << I definitely fell off the world a tad in April. I did get caught up with saltmine debt though. I'm also current again with the logs and most of the blogs, though turns out I let lobbesblog.com expire (had to email them and am waiting to hear back, but the server it pointed to is still active: [06:11]
ericbot: Logged on 2020-04-26 19:08:58 diana_coman: lobbes: what happened to you this almost full April, anyway? [06:11]
lobbes: I'm planning to get my month review out tomorrow. I'm going to continue the thread from here into there. (I'm a bit late with this as well..) [06:12]

cruciform: diana_coman, thanks for the feeback on the agenda & log summary - very helpful! [19:13]
diana_coman: cruciform: you're welcome. [21:08]
diana_coman: lobbes - I guess I'll read all about it in the review & plan; otherwise from here so far it seems rather as initially predicted that dropping the shorter-term plans & reviews just works as it always "worked" - to not get anywhere. [21:10]
jfw: diana_coman: I didn't start yet on my week's review (there's reasons!!); it'll be out by tomorrow. [21:13]
diana_coman: jfw: out of reasons by tomorrow? lolz [21:15]
diana_coman: apparently planning and reviewing is not that special - the more painful/impossible/unreasonable!!!! one finds it, the more... one needs it, in all likelihood. [21:17]
jfw: I had a chat with parents, noting that medical insurance had been on my agenda for weeks now but I still couldn't manage to care about it. In the end, mom worries about why I'm quite so allergic to this sort of paperwork, websitelogins etc., but dad will take on some of the administrative work, in return for some computer help (that he'd been waiting to ask for anyway). So that seems to work out [21:18]
jfw: nicely [21:18]
diana_coman: lol [21:19]
diana_coman: jfw: so dunno, go around the town and find others who might do stuff for you in exchange for computer help? if it's a working model, at least use it for all it's worth! [21:21]
jfw: hey, that's the "generalized IT consulting" right? [21:22]
jurov: diana_coman: with ben_vulpes [21:23]
diana_coman: oh, is that it? I had a sort of ...less barter, more commerce image of it, lol [21:23]
diana_coman: jurov: oh, hi; I had no idea ben_vulpes was still on it at all; anyway, what do you plan with it, if you don't mind me asking? [21:24]
jfw: diana_coman: now there's a thought, maybe people will pay in work what they wouldn't pay in cash [21:25]
jurov: it has not crystallized yet, mostly support some interesting projects around V. [21:25]
diana_coman: jurov: so do you have a team of people or some ongoing projects or what do you have in mind? is communication going through you only or is there some other means/place for it? [21:28]
diana_coman: jfw: they generally would, with the caveat of what "work" might mean, eh. [21:28]
jurov: diana_coman: if there was, are you interested in joining it? [21:29]
diana_coman: jurov: without knowing what "it" was, I can't possibly say; the reason why I'm asking you all those questions is to figure out what "it" is in the first place, really [21:30]
jfw: hi jurov. I'm curious as well as I've been digging into TRB lately. I've been active here since around last September if you don't know me. [21:31]
diana_coman: sadly atm I'm a bit rushed as usual on Fridays but maybe we do get to talk a bit more tomorrow or ~any other day really [21:31]
diana_coman: I'll read the logs ofc, anyway. [21:31]
diana_coman: will have to go in ~5 min [21:31]
jurov: "it" isn't anything concrete yet [21:32]
jfw: diana_coman: indeed, quite the caveat. [21:32]
jfw: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/01/ossasepia-logs-for-01-May-2020/#1025554 - how true this turns out. I seem to fall back on my old review-phobia, perhaps because I have a sense of not getting much done this week - which might not even be true! going to bed now. [08:21]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-01 21:15:22 (#ossasepia) diana_coman: jfw: out of reasons by tomorrow? lolz [08:21]

jfw: congrats indeed dorion, quite a few revision passes went into that. [21:04]
diana_coman: shall not ask dorion to write also the compare-and-contrast first version to published version. [21:06]
diana_coman: though jfw's above remark makes it very tempting indeed! [21:07]
diana_coman: jfw: how's your review/planning ? [21:09]
jfw: diana_coman: I haven't moved on it yet, and I was thinking to take on a blog article first. Maybe I'm backwards there. [21:12]
diana_coman: jfw: well, if you use the blog article to push the review aside/further, it will surely end up late etc; so yeah, if you want it done, better do it earlier than later and get rid of it. [21:13]
jfw: alright. [21:14]
diana_coman: jurov: are you around & do you want to detail perhaps on what you and ben_vulpes have in mind re supporting projects around V? [21:15]
jurov: diana_coman: not really, don't want to air speculation [21:29]
dorion: diana_coman, jfw thanks. diana_coman that compare and contrast exercise did occur to me given the difference. [21:31]
diana_coman: jurov: uhm, I wasn't asking for speculation but alright. [21:33]
diana_coman: dorion: in fairness you probably got that already simply through the repeated iterations; not that it would hurt anything to re-read the full series perhaps if you find the time for it. [21:43]
dorion: diana_coman I for sure got a lot out of the iterations, I'll make time for at least the re-read nevertheless. [22:10]

diana_coman: in other bot/logger updates - I've changed it so that the articles will be just one per month rather than one per day; for one thing there isn't really all that much text to justify one for each day and for another thing, there's just too many of them otherwise. [20:43]

diana_coman: spyked: what throws feedbot off above? [21:10]
diana_coman: I took out 2 articles but why would it jump all that way back to *that*?? [21:11]
diana_coman: (the 2 articles in question are the logs for 2nd and 1st of May that got absorbed into the one single log for May for #o) [21:12]

spyked: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1025620 <-- wp acts retarded sometimes; on the 1st layer: in some circumstances (not entirely known to me), it re-assigns new post IDs to old articles; on the 2nd layer: rss channel entries are identified using the "guid" tag, and when a post gets a new postid, its guid tag also changes. [08:04]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-03 21:10:30 (#ossasepia) diana_coman: spyked: what throws feedbot off above? [08:04]
spyked: speaking of which, diana_coman, it looks like (some of) your log articles have empty guid tags? when feedbot doesn't find the guid for an entry, it uses the "link" tag instead, but otherwise it can't guarantee all that much, because how else is it supposed to identify rss entries. [08:07]
diana_coman: spyked: hm, I'll add the guid tags to the list since it seems I really have to sink some days into sorting out mpwp for my current needs, after all. [09:31]
spyked: diana_coman: is the logbot adding/modifying articles via mysql? [09:41]
spyked: wonders, what is mpwp using to generate that particular tag? [09:42]
diana_coman: spyked: yes, via mysql [09:58]
diana_coman: and I didn't specifically care about guid tags so possibly there's something missing indeed [09:58]
diana_coman: I half dread I'll end up stripping half of mpwp codebase if I really sink days into setting the blog straight once and for all but the annoyance and pressure is building on that front so ...I guess I'll find out soon enough. [09:59]
diana_coman: http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/27/ossasepia-logs-for-27-Apr-2020/#1025351 - ftr dorion , one week in, I don't see much of this. [10:03]
sonofawitch: 2020-04-27 21:11:04 (#ossasepia) diana_coman: dorion: what's your plan re using those resources ? [10:03]
spyked: diana_coman: it seems that there's indeed a 'guid' field in the wp posts table. and rss grabs it in e.g. wp-includes/feed-rss2.php (via the_guid(), defined in wp-includes/post-template.php) [10:47]
diana_coman: spyked: I didn't look but I'd have expected that field to be added automatically on insert really; possibly some of the php normally does that; anyways, I'll probably find out soon enough indeed. [12:02]
diana_coman: billymg: your v-tree at http://billymg.com/mp-wp-vtree/ stops at mp-wp_comments_filtering.vpatch while my local tree has also mp-wp_add-embedded-vpatch-formatting.vpatch ; as a result, now I'm confused as to what even is the full current trunk, let alone whatever modifications I might have deployed otherwise. [12:03]
spyked: diana_coman: I don't think it can set the field on auto, since it's a string. so yeah, I think it's generated in php, based on the URL and the post ID, i.e. http://myblog/?p=N [12:40]
spyked: (for further reference: from the looks of it, it's set in wp-includes/post.php, in the wp_insert_post mega-function, e.g. http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=68UC ) [12:46]
billymg: diana_coman: yeah i haven't updated yet because i was going to republish that patch with some of the feedback from jfw. then that feedback plus discussion in here prompted a pause to do some research (the survey), and last week i got sidetracked with some IRL work plus a trip to arenal (blog post drafted and ready [19:16]
billymg: to go once i get some permissions assistance on anyserver) [19:16]
billymg: diana_coman: this time i did all my image processing locally with a script i put together based on the one whaack shared and your mention of a locally running imagemagick, and so now my anyserver user is bumping into permission restrictions on a folder previously generated by apache (via mpwp) when trying to copy over the images [19:20]

diana_coman: billymg: btw, since I did one round of digging through the whole pile of mpwp yet again - by now it's better I'd say to remove that "selection-magic" thing given that it's broken [20:38]
billymg: diana_coman: indeed, jfw has a patch for that already (just need a minor tweak) [20:40]
ossabot: Logged on 2020-04-22 21:32:40 billymg: http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/23/ossasepia-logs-for-22-Apr-2020#1025005 << jfw, yup, looks good. one minor thing for the patch removing js selection: the wrapper <span> tags in page.php and single.php can be removed as well [20:40]
billymg: i was gonna wait for him to make that last update and then add his two patches to my mirror of the trunk [20:41]
diana_coman: cool then; is there in any of those (im)pending vpatches the fixing of the trilema-specific links-immunity? because I noticed that in the main trunk it's set to trilema.com and nowhere even mentioned, lolz. [20:42]
diana_coman: billymg: do you know by any chance where is the page/nopage set for the archives? not sure why is this even so different than for the rest but I can't seem to properly & fully figure it out atm. [20:44]
billymg: diana_coman: re: trilema-specific links, not to my knowledge, but i can add that as a drive-by fix in the code embed patch [20:49]
billymg: diana_coman: what do you mean by page/nopage set for archives? [20:50]
diana_coman: billymg: how to set it so it does not paginate archive contents, for any archive [20:53]
diana_coman: I can set it directly for posts, there are some parameters to the posts query but I can't quite figure out how to set it only for archives [20:53]
billymg: ah i see, so for example on http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/ you'd like all of the entries to be on a single page? [20:55]
diana_coman: yes [20:55]
jfw: diana_coman: what's the links-immunity mean? [20:56]
billymg: diana_coman: got it. i don't know offhand but i can look [20:57]
diana_coman: jfw: mpwp is set so comments with links get into the moderation queue *except* those with links to trilema.com [20:58]
diana_coman: ofc, one would change that to links to own site; or hm, so I supposed, lol [20:58]
diana_coman: now it will turn out everyone runs it with trilema.com [20:59]
jfw: checking what I did on mine... [20:59]
diana_coman: jfw: it's in wp-includes/comment.php [21:00]

jfw: I see a trilema.com in a preg_match_all and yeah, I had no idea that file needed tweaking. [21:06]
jfw: I believe I raised the link count threshold to count as spam in the admin UI, possibly that's why it hasn't bothered me. [21:07]

diana_coman: jfw: yes, that one in check_comment; as you can see, it subtracts links to trilema from total links before it looks if it's to go to modq or not [21:08]
diana_coman: jfw: well, you wouldn't specifically notice it as such I suppose anyway unless really paying attention/getting surprised at some comments making it through without moderation perhaps. [21:09]
jfw: I can't quite make out what those REs are doing, especially the starting | and trailing |i and *? (guessing the ? is just redundant with the * there, but with all the different RE variants it could mean something entierly else for all I know...) [21:20]
jfw: think I'll leave it to billymg unless he asks for help though :) [21:20]
billymg: diana_coman: do you think it's something that should just be removed? and if someone wants to whitelist their domain they update the regex accordingly? i could see it as a useful feature if the whitelisted domain(s) could be set at the db or config level and pulled into that regex [21:23]
jfw: billymg: I'll do that comments-js removal vpatch tweak / regrind by Sunday, unless you'd prefer it wait to build on the patch-review patch. (Not that it's hard, just lots else on the plate.) [21:23]
billymg: jfw: sunday is fine for me, i was going to place the patch-review patch on top of those after making the final round of updates [21:24]
diana_coman: billymg: hm, I think that the blog's domain is actually in the db, isn't it? [21:25]
diana_coman: in _options iirc [21:25]
billymg: diana_coman: ah, true, could just pull from that then [21:25]
jfw: ^, or WP_SITEURL from wp-config.php [21:25]
jfw: (the two may interact in some way...) [21:26]
billymg: my thought was to make it a csv list perhaps, so one could whitelist multiple domains, but that could always wait for later (if it even seems worth doing) [21:26]
diana_coman: jfw: the wp-config values are used at install time to set those in the db iirc [21:26]
diana_coman: not sure they are even directly used afterwards [21:26]
diana_coman: billymg: there is somewhere further whitelisting iirc based on blogroll; or so it was intended [21:27]
billymg: diana_coman: ah, got it [21:30]
diana_coman: dorion: fwiw I can fully relate to single-focus on one thing and one thing only but with (a lot of) experience, I learnt also that it ~never works well like that over days/weeks/more and moreover it's not even as effective as it may seem; so yeah, practice a more balanced approach, it's worth it. [21:31]
diana_coman: cruciform: did you get lost in the relaxing one-day? [21:32]
dorion: thanks diana_coman. though I didn't foresee it, it makes sense in retrospect that the pattern re-emerged as I get going again. Today has been more balanced and I'm looking forward to keeping it up. [22:01]

spyked: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1025673 <-- the first and last | are delimiters; the i there is a modifier; not sure about the ?s myself [10:35]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-04 21:20:05 (#ossasepia) jfw: I can't quite make out what those REs are doing, especially the starting | and trailing |i and *? (guessing the ? is just redundant with the * there, but with all the different RE variants it could mean something entierly else for all I know...) [10:35]
jfw: spyked: ah right, PCRE, "I herd you like delimiters so I put delimiters in your delimiters" etc., ty. [21:29]
diana_coman: as part of the most recent futzing about with the theme on my blog, the text area is now based on % of the screen so hopefully that's better for everything really, logs included; I've nuked also the theme's font-minimizing imposition [21:37]
jfw: looking very nice including the banner diana_coman [21:40]
diana_coman: jfw: thank you, that's very good to hear! (because I can futz with this sort of thing until next month and I will *still* not like it, lol) [21:40]
jfw: was going to note the gray title was hard to read against the banner but I refreshed and it was fixed, heh. [21:41]
diana_coman: the banner is script-generated, I should set a bunch and cycle but not today [21:42]
diana_coman: yeah, css + positioning + colours are something I can thoroughly test all my patience with. [21:42]
jfw: meanwhile my patience is wearing thin with 'Zoom'; shockingly, their "how to allow us through your firewall" listing of a few dozen networks is incomplete, and DNS seems basically manditory as it looks up a few dozen things nondeterministically [21:45]
BingoBoingo: jfw: I run it on a toilet box of suficiently low clearance [21:46]
BingoBoingo: Realtime online video is a very dirty, shitty, stinky market [21:47]
diana_coman: jfw: ahaha, is it worse than sorting out that health insurance or not just yet? [21:47]
jfw: BingoBoingo: likewise, but just because the box is a toilet doesn't mean I won't make sure the pipes are as well sealed as I can get them [21:48]
jfw: diana_coman: not just yet, heh. [21:48]
diana_coman: jfw: are you planning to use that zoom for lesson deliveries too? [21:52]
jfw: diana_coman: that's the idea [21:52]

BingoBoingo: jfw: I the ongoing saga of lulz and acquisitions Zoom... is buying ancient turd Keybase. [18:33]
BingoBoingo: Deal appears to be an acqui-hire [18:33]
diana_coman: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1025717 - lolz, though kind of following the usual pattern really. [21:05]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-07 18:33:12 (#ossasepia) BingoBoingo: jfw: I the ongoing saga of lulz and acquisitions Zoom... is buying ancient turd Keybase. [21:05]
diana_coman: in fairness and looking at it from another angle - what *could* they buy that is not similar, after all. [21:05]
diana_coman: jfw: did zoom yield to running on those reasonably sealed pipes ? [21:07]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-05 21:48:03 (#ossasepia) jfw: BingoBoingo: likewise, but just because the box is a toilet doesn't mean I won't make sure the pipes are as well sealed as I can get them [21:07]
jfw: indeed, people noticed their encryption is a joke, so buy the shop that "everyone" trusted to hold all the keys! [21:07]
diana_coman: jfw: eh, this "people noticed" is ~0; sure, they "noticed" and ... keep on using them, right? [21:08]
jfw: diana_coman: it wants to connect to anything and everything on port 443; it runs to some degree with a whitelist, but I've had some problems that might be resulting from that, and doesn't bode well for ongoing stability [21:09]
diana_coman: but yeah, from where I see it, it's pretty much a competition on perceived popularity, not on quality really, and it fits. [21:10]
diana_coman: I kind of doubt you'll get stability with it regardless of whether you allow it to connect to anything and everything or not, lol [21:11]
jfw: can't really argue there. [21:14]
diana_coman: jfw, dorion at any rate, do you plan to take advantage of this covid-induced fashion for "do not meet, go online" and push the online sessions more widely or not/what else? [21:15]
diana_coman: jfw: the point there is that zoom (like python, like eulora's client etc) is the sort "use it like it was the enemy because it is " [21:16]
diana_coman: so don't waste time trying to cater to whatever it wants/requires - set it on separate net if you have to, redundant instances or whatevers to give you the stability you want and otherwise don't waste time on it [21:17]
jfw: my first impulse as far as treating it like the enemy was to take a close look and try to fence it in tightly; but yeah, it taxes me more by time in playing that game [21:21]
jfw: and yes I figured an upside of online training would be an ability to push it more widely, but doesn't seem like we have any concrete plan for doing that. Focus has been on the handful of current prospects. [21:28]
diana_coman: jfw: with practical example from my latest sad experience of wasting time and a lot of effort too - basically not worth paying attention to any of the rotten stuff, not even the slightest tiny bit (because it will *still* eat up a lot of time, no matter how tiny or innocent or benign bit it seems to start with). [21:29]
diana_coman: jfw: so maybe make a plan? lol [21:30]
diana_coman: dorion: ^^ [21:31]
diana_coman: jfw: do you have current prospects at your location too or only those at dorion's ? [21:33]
jfw: diana_coman: by "not worth paying attention" do you mean not worth using it at all, or just being ...careful about it? (reading the link) [21:33]
diana_coman: jfw: not worth paying attention *to any of its requirements* [21:35]
jfw: I haven't done much/any scouting here. Don't know anyone in town besides family, but there's a bunch of them so perhaps that'd make a good start for getting introductions [21:35]
diana_coman: so use it, sure; but use it forcefully to do what you need, and without any regard to what it says/wants/expects/whatevers [21:35]
diana_coman: it surely can't hurt anything and after all, why not getting to know people; yeah, at first you don't know anyone in a new town, kind of a given but doesn't have to stay that way, lol. [21:37]
diana_coman: now I noticed I got a spurious / in my earlier link; should just be all the way to end of para, so here's the fixed link [21:38]
jfw: ah ok. and yeah, I should get on that. [21:39]
diana_coman: jfw: while the paragraph above is specific to eulora's client and all that, hopefully it's clear enough as illustration of working with it vs working *it*. [21:41]
diana_coman: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1025745 - this sounds ...like that health insurance plan! [21:42]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-07 21:39:06 (#ossasepia) jfw: ah ok. and yeah, I should get on that. [21:42]
jfw: like I'm already expecting it to be miserable [21:44]
diana_coman: more like you know you should do it but you'd really rather not do it, lol [21:45]
jfw: yeah, trying to find why that is though [21:47]
diana_coman: jfw: dunno, the very-outgoing-enjoying-meeting-random-people-jacob? [21:53]
diana_coman: (alternatively - it can get chaotic and it's even harder than zoom to fence in!) [21:56]
sonofawitch: 2020-03-03 16:40:31 (#ossasepia) jfw: Can get the faster ones to help the others to some extent too, but it can get chaotic [21:56]
jfw: right, jacob prefers his chaos in small doses [21:57]
diana_coman: only this is the sort of thing where preferences shouldn't be allowed to rule the matter, really. [21:58]
diana_coman: on the bright side though, even strong preferences can still be ...tamed let's say, with a lot of practice; possibly painful practice, might add, but it works. [22:00]
jfw: good to know it works at least. [22:04]
jfw: diana_coman: so in the eulora example, Planeshift "required" character models to work a certain way, but because it was a stupid way, the effort ended up better spent on bypassing it (while still using parts of it elsewhere) than adapting to it? [22:12]
diana_coman: jfw: the "requirement" seemed small and innocent since after all, what's the trouble with "characters on the ground", right? but as soon as used for anything really, it turned out to be (as it always turns out to be; if only I stop forgetting this, already) basically the first sip of a... spittoon. [22:16]
diana_coman: in the sort of stupid-ball that those things are, ~any part no matter how small will bring in quickly a lot of further stupid, as soon as taken at face value otherwise; because that's how the whole insanity is built in the first place, kind of layer upon layer of stupid reinforcing one another and making anything else impossible [22:18]
diana_coman: in principle, ~any convention re position of models can be fine; but *only* if implemented sanely and that's the catch there - it won't be implemented sanely because that's why the whole thing is the enemy in the first place [22:19]
diana_coman: it's instead implemented exactly to support the *opposite* of what you are trying to do; hence "the enemy" [22:20]
diana_coman: (in the example from eulora - no trouble to have characters on the ground if one has also the means to rotate them around their own axes; but setting them on ground because "too much trouble to do all the transformations" ends up with "can't rotate nor find out the origin " and so on) [22:21]
diana_coman: for that matter the part where the actual origin can't be known still boggles the mind, given that the models are given in...coordinates, wtf. [22:22]
jfw: and how could there not be a way to have their own transform matrix in the stack, I wonder innocently [22:22]
diana_coman: the short version of the whole "it's the enemy" re code would be that the code in question is built to *not permit* the sort of work you want to do with it; no matter in what /how small parts you look at it and no matter how it might seem at first. [22:23]
diana_coman: jfw: they could have, ofc; but that's how it starts, you see? they got this "convention" in not in order to have a standard (which would be a useful thing even) but because of trying to avoid "calculating transformations is Maths and it's hard!!" [22:25]
diana_coman: quite transparently, at that. [22:25]
jfw: designed to not permit - that certainly fits the zoom experience (and surely lots more too, that's just what's fresh in mind) [22:25]
diana_coman: well yes; I'm forgetful/soft enough to have therefore obtained a lot of practical experience and it always goes like that, yes. [22:26]
jfw: ahaha, one wonders how one for whom transformations is hard gets into writing 3D engines. [22:26]
diana_coman: jfw: ah, the Planeshift guys did not write the engine [22:27]
diana_coman: that's the thing, the CS is the engine and (while far from perfect), *that* bit is way, way saner than everything else [22:28]
diana_coman: and it has been in this sense built with a sane view ie it allows ofc transformations ; you'll notice I even say there that yes, I ended up using CS's rotations perfectly fine [22:29]
diana_coman: bypassing all of PS on top [22:29]
diana_coman: PS (planeshift) though is the client code really, hence client is the enemy. [22:29]
jfw: ah ok, I gathered PS was something on top but not sure at what level. [22:30]
diana_coman: ftr, the engine CS started as the work of one guy; the Planeshift game is ...open source, "community effort" and all those "trims" ; that show! [22:30]
diana_coman: there are 3 clear layers to that thing: cs is the graphics engine; cal3d is a (reasonably sane) library for animation and is used by cs; on top of those comes the insanity aka the client aka planeshift. [22:31]
diana_coman: (though I do resent the single-minded focus on rasterised graphics of both cs and cal3d, they are otherwise incomparably saner than ps, for sure) [22:33]
jfw: the man alone at least has an easier time of maintaining conceptual integrity; the art then is to work with others in a way that supports you rather than gobbles you into The Community? [22:34]
diana_coman: well, supposedly that's the advantage of working alone; but the point is to work with others of *same mind*, not with whatever others; so don't mix the two like that, as it's quite misleading in the best of cases. [22:35]
jfw: so "who" rather than "how", makes sense [22:36]
diana_coman: and possibly how it all starts anyway - on the strength of "I can maintain conceptual integrity if alone" (and possibly assorted further "savings" of time and talk etc), the man alone finds the great way to give in to his preference for... less chaos, I think it was :P [22:37]
diana_coman: otherwise yes, the "how to work with enemy" can apply to more than code, sure [22:38]
jfw: he doth. [22:39]

jfw: ah, did the change of scenery change your state of mind then or how did it help? [21:22]

billymg: diana_coman: unfortunately this is most of the silicon valley fiat spigots [21:23]
billymg: was just talking with former coworker this morning, realized we sorta think differently about the whole covid thing [21:24]
billymg: nice though that i can now just say what i think, instead of pretending to agree with the party line [21:24]
jfw: billymg: for sure. [21:26]
diana_coman: billymg: I'm sure it is and I'm not even surprised; fwiw I have refused to even answer to/go to the interview request from google; and yeah, those former uni/classmates that I know currently working in silicon valley ...what can I say, it showed even ~20 years ago, there's a reason for it. [21:26]
diana_coman: as one of them put it "it's a ridiculous amount of money" - and that's where he stopped with any thinking, even of the sort "how much of it is just ridiculous and how much of it is actual money" [21:27]
billymg: diana_coman: well i was at least able to convert it into btc, property in another country. not sure how much longer that window will stay open though [21:29]
billymg: diana_coman: but yeah, there were a few former coworkers who i knew had their heads on straight, but for whatever reason (mortgage, family), couldn't bring themselves to leave [21:31]
diana_coman: I suppose he could have; I doubt he did or will, because it takes some sort of buy in to swallow up all the rest with it, what can I say; (and possibly more for him than for you given that it was more uphill for him to get there in the first place, in all likelihood) [21:31]
billymg: lol, most ridiculous thing was when the ny office's men's bathroom started being stocked with tampons. it was not talked about. everyone just acted as if of course that's what you do [21:33]
billymg: happened last summer after i had already transferred to the texas office. i came back for some even in nyc and thought i had accidentally walked into the wrong restroom [21:33]
billymg: event* [21:33]
diana_coman: ahaha, I can't imagine the thinking behind it. [21:34]
diana_coman: as for reasons...those are easiest to find when one looks for them, there's always plenty. [21:35]
billymg: diana_coman: > and possibly more for him than for you given that it was more uphill for him to get there in the first place, in all likelihood << didn't think about this angle but yes, likely true [21:37]
diana_coman: jfw: dunno though, I didn't get the impression that your lack of enthusiasm for getting to know people in a new town had anything to do with the "stasi danger"; does it? [21:38]
jfw: nah. [21:39]
jfw: fear of either rejection or boredom more than fear of loss I think [21:41]
diana_coman: thing is that ~all fears are in the end both bigger/worse than the reality (because they are not constrained by much, unlike poor reality) and limits that increasingly fence you in (~those walls meeting one another in the distance where the trap... remember?) [21:47]
billymg: jfw: are you still thinking of visiting cr after the borders open again? [21:47]
diana_coman: (can further add though perhaps that's just me - that I ~never met a fear that didn't only grow worse and bigger and nastier for *not* being confronted earlier; so kind of easier to kill earlier than later). [21:49]
jfw: diana_coman: makes sense [21:49]
billymg: (which the government here now says will be june 15th at the earliest) [21:52]
jfw: billymg: thinking of, sure; will have to see where things stand though. [21:52]
billymg: jfw: of course, makes sense. would be good to meet up for sure if you can [21:53]
jfw: billymg: thanks. I'll at least be back in Panama at some point, even if it's just to visit & pack up - another thing to decide when the time comes. [21:56]
diana_coman: from what it looks at least here (masks on planes/airports & quarantine at the very least), I don't see any plane travel happening in my near future, lolz. [22:00]
diana_coman: come to think of it, maybe it's the best time to start riding a horse - perfect for social distancing and all that, will travel Europe on horseback! [22:00]
jfw: there a good network of trails for that or would you end up doing some road sharing? [22:03]
jfw: is quite ignorant of modern equine logistics [22:04]
diana_coman: well, for one thing crossing the channel is kind of ...sharing, lol; then in Europe itself, I'd say you could possibly go by bike nicely all the way to Eastern Europe (where roads are what they are even for cars, so what can one ask for anyway, otherwise, lol) [22:04]
diana_coman: heh, here in the UK they are better re horses than on the continent, if anything; but yeah, it works along the lines of "cars will wait, problem?" [22:05]
jfw: there you go! and yeah I assume you'd ferry or tunnel it across the channel [22:06]
diana_coman: I'd guess there'd be worse from a bureaucratic point of view with all the certificates required, at that. [22:08]
diana_coman: so I guess kid has a point ("farm ~= machinery; animals - stinky!"), lolz [22:08]
jfw: I imagine horses don't need license plates at least! [22:10]
diana_coman: and don't even have the trouble of left/right driver side! [22:11]
diana_coman: maybe cruciform is actually more knowledgeable re horses in the UK at least. [22:12]
jfw: although most everyone not-UK doesn't have that problem anymore either [22:12]
diana_coman: jfw: that's precisely the point as far as I can tell - how can one give up a unique & special problem all of their own? (come to think of it, everyone loves their own most special problem - it's what makes them unique!!) [22:14]
diana_coman: but in all fairness - former colonies still have it, too, heh. [22:14]
jfw: haha [22:14]

jfw: thanks! [21:27]
dorion: jfw nice, enjoy! will you dare dip in the ocean ? [21:31]
jfw: dorion: not likely (the access anyway is to a river estuary but close enough) [21:32]
diana_coman: cannot understand being next to water and *not* dip! [21:33]
dorion: yeah I mean at least wade in, lol. [21:34]
jfw: I'm not much of an ice cold showers type. Spoiled Americans I guess [21:35]
diana_coman: jfw: eh, you haven't known then southern Italians, lol; but no, it's more to do with water than with temperature. [21:37]
jfw: well you can't quite have one without the other. [21:40]
diana_coman: indeed; but you can care about one and not about the other. [21:41]
jfw: enjoys watching lava flows too but can't quite bring self to not care about the temperature [21:44]
jfw: it's true though, there are those who don't mind the frigid waters. [21:45]
diana_coman: lol, lava flows and frigid waters; at least it's clear you certainly care about temperature first and foremost, what. [21:46]
diana_coman: but yeah, it's fun to get those used to the Baltic/North Sea to some warmer waters ("it's like swimming in the soup!!") and the other way around ("it's like getting into the freezer!!!") [21:49]
jfw: I can't quite imagine someone not liking the warmer waters but will have to try that sometime. [21:50]
diana_coman: so many likes are a matter of habit (and deeper than that - a matter of wider specific adaptation really) that it's not really all that hard to throw people off if you want to; part and parcel of having lived in many places though is getting to see just how much of what people claim otherwise as fixed and "the truth" and all that is in the end just a matter of context really. [21:57]
jfw: had to read a couple times but I think I get that. [22:05]
jfw: we like what we're familiar with & able to handle [22:05]
diana_coman: comfortable to handle even, yes; and that comfortable can be quite genuine especially in this sort of physical matters - it's what the body has already adapted to, simply; as a concrete example, brits tend to genuinely dislike "hot weather" which is nowhere near "hot" by Italian standards [22:07]
diana_coman: and the main reason for it as far as I can tell is that the temperatures here tend to be relatively *stable* so there's way less adaptation to handling quick changes, whether up or down [22:08]
diana_coman: for that matter, after 10 years here, I noticed that I don't handle all that well anymore e.g. 30+ & humid in my home town although I never used to mind it *that much* before. [22:10]
diana_coman: but the lesson in all this is simply that one can adapt a whole lot more than one might think at first - it just takes time. [22:11]
diana_coman: (the 30+ is Celsius) [22:12]
jfw: somehow I seem to have got less tolerant of the tropical 30+ every day & variably humid after living there a while, and enjoying the swings up here [22:14]
diana_coman: that sounds more like boredom with the lack of change, lol [22:16]
diana_coman: (and yeah, I still miss a proper winter for instance and more specifically the contrast, indeed) [22:16]
jfw: yeah, need adaptation plus a bit of challenge / novelty. [22:17]
jfw: although the year-round-spring places don't sound too bad. [22:18]
diana_coman: dunno, I quite like autumn and winter; after a while spring genuinely gets on my nerves, lol [22:18]
jfw: I hear ya. [22:19]

diana_coman: billymg: the log-articles are in fact the very reason why I was asking a few days earlier if you knew by any chance how to make archive views unpaginated; I still haven't gotten around to dig into that but at some point I will; following up on your comment though - what do you see so wrong with logs that you'd ...quarantine them rather than treat them like any other text? [21:07]
diana_coman: for reference, the relevant comment - if anyone else feels strongly that somehow logs are not articles, I'd be quite curious to hear the full argument - why are they not articles? [21:13]
diana_coman: shall be back tomorrow [21:25]
jfw: some possible arguments come to mind there but I don't feel strongly about it. [21:41]
jfw: one thing I don't like about wordpress as a whole, whether or not used for logs, is the lack of any raw export, thus the need for lossy & inefficient spidering if one wishes to preserve someone else's. [21:43]
jfw: (if you were Google, how would you even make a log+comment search that worked well? refresh the whole blog daily?) [21:44]
jfw: even mediawiki can do this, though some operators don't seem to find it important [21:46]
jfw: (of course you could use the rss feeds to drive a search indexer, though that would miss edits or updates of a real-time log.) [21:50]
billymg: diana_coman: replied to your comment. i think the main thing i'm missing is the "why" behind putting the logs in mpwp, rather than, say, improving/extending the logotron [05:16]
diana_coman: jfw: the raw log exporter is something on my list to add and it's *no different* from the old stuff which is itself a dump of raw data, so nothing to do with mpwp or anything else [08:55]
diana_coman: billymg: the "why" in the shortest and calmest manner I can muster: because it's not needed; it's an additional headache without any benefits and by headache I mean - a whole pile of *additional* stuff to maintain (that flask thing surely was mentioned in the logs but note that it requires in turn a whole set of ???, look at it sometime); the lack of permanence ultimately because look at it, if I stop logging a channel, I'm stuck ... [09:01]
diana_coman: ... with either breaking down everyone's links or otherwise keeping the dead channel's logs *in the way* instead of basically still where they were but correctly a matter of the past [09:01]
diana_coman: and for the record, I don't think it's the right direction there this "why not struggle with that shit some more instead of making use of what is way more useful anyway"; yes, I made the mistake of using that; no, this doesn't mean that I *have to* keep throwing good time after the bad. [09:03]
diana_coman: note that I'm *not* introducing a new thing, quite on the contrary, I'm trimming away stuff. [09:03]
diana_coman: and answered the comment on the blog too as apparently there were quite a few things to clarify. [09:46]

ossabot: Logged on 2020-05-09 17:36:02 diana_coman: maybe cruciform is actually more knowledgeable re horses in the UK at least. [11:45]
diana_coman: ahaha cruciform, that's the proper take on it, channeling last of the dandies muskham and all that. [12:06]
cruciform: diana_coman, are you referring to this? [13:48]
diana_coman: cruciform: neah; galsworthy's forsyte saga /continuation (iirc it was on top of/after the end of the main saga as such); and you know, "this" is not very helpful to link on - put the name of the thing there, way more helpful. [14:04]
diana_coman: muskham was passionate about horses; by contrast, he was polite and respectful to ladies, lol. [14:06]
diana_coman: he could appreciate a lady too - to the extent that she showed a good eye for the horses! [14:07]
cruciform: lol - seems English women [14:10]
cruciform: have been ugly for a while, then [14:10]
diana_coman: well, supposedly there used to be at least something for the "English rose" but what can I say there. [14:11]
cruciform: they look more like bags of fertiliser, nowadays [14:12]
diana_coman: lol, at least that promises good growth! [14:13]
diana_coman: but well, go where the beautiful women are, what. [14:13]
cruciform: and an upcoming 2 for £10 special [14:13]
cruciform: "I don't like where I live" "so move!" didn't occur to me for over a year - weird [14:15]
diana_coman: you know, this thing with "3 for 2" and so on - it took me a lot of time to get my head around; why the fuck would I buy more than I wanted to buy in the first place; and why the hell does it even still end up more expensive than e.g. bigger packs at times (only yeah, had to calculate for 5 minutes to figure it exactly, what with the weird measurement system and all) [14:15]

billymg: diana_coman: thank you for your reply and for patiently explaining the purpose of the tool/project. i think there was a lot of context i was missing but now i understand it. left a reply on your blog too [18:52]
diana_coman: billymg: answered there - it's indeed as you summarised it in your last comment; and no worries, way better to discuss and clarify matters + now they are on record so handy to give the link to anyone else who might come in wondering "why" [20:40]
diana_coman: ftr and in case it's not clear, there is an argument that can be made that the old logger has a salvageable part, namely strictly the irc-frontend, if one is so inclined; it's really the web side that brings in the whole shit and trouble. [20:49]
diana_coman: (well, assuming that python itself is not classed as full trouble anyway, which is debatable.) [20:49]
jfw: ^ or psql [21:07]
diana_coman: possibly with irc-side only, the switch to whichever one prefers can be made relatively painlessly; not that I really tried it but normally it shouldn't be a huge pain (unless it's my optimism speaking again) [21:12]
jfw: my own bias (as not-a-databases-professional) would be switching mp-wp to work with psql and using that only (shouldn't be huge pain!!) [21:14]
diana_coman: ahaha; why? [21:15]
jfw: for instance because psql had grownup features like transactions from early days whereas mysql had them bolted on by oracle [21:15]
jfw: my recollection is the traditional MyISAM storage engine is not crash-proof. [21:16]
diana_coman: I really worked with people who were die-hard supporters of psql and moreover I used psql myself for years back in academia under the exact "it's more robust!! and faster!! and not-bolted on!!!!11"; having afterwards equally worked with people who found mysql the better of the 2, I can say that ...it's the people, not the tool (ie it depends on how well the operator knows psql/mysql). [21:17]
jfw: I also liked that it did unix socket authentication out of the box without "plugin"; why should I need password auth when it's all on the same box [21:17]
diana_coman: iirc the whole psql vs mysql has already had repeated discussions in #t too with the conclusion ~likely there will be both [21:19]
jfw: also stronger type-checking comes to mind (though perhaps that was only compared to sqlite) [21:19]
diana_coman: and yeah, I can see it; only atm there's no tmsr anymore and so the "both" is more like "as many and as diverse as each wants because ultimately they are anyway on their own" [21:20]
jfw: would have needed a dependable lord of the database in order to benefit from picking <small number>? [21:21]
jfw: nah that doesn't sound right. [21:22]
jfw: in order to benefit from picking "supported database" rather. There's still benefit in reducing the proliferation, seems to me. [21:22]
diana_coman: jfw: no, not at all ; and tbh I have no idea where this idea of "lord of X " came from; yeah, as I said, I did read jurov's chan log so I saw trinque's line with it but I'm still scratching my head as to where it came from [21:22]
diana_coman: yes, supported database is different indeed [21:23]
diana_coman: and the point is supported by ...which sovereign (most pointedly not "which lord") [21:23]
jfw: weren't the minimal requirements to lordship 1) attendance in the forum and 2) the fief - something important that you owned / took care of? [21:24]
jfw: and many of the titles were along the lines of "lord of X" [21:24]
diana_coman: jfw: yes; that doesn't translate in any sane way to "lord of database" [21:24]
diana_coman: yes, you might notice that it wasn't lord of mysql, lol [21:25]
diana_coman: arguably of the whole set mine was even the most "specific" but if you look at just what eulora comprises.... [21:25]
diana_coman: possibly the most concrete rather than specific [21:25]
diana_coman: trinque: out of curiosity, how do you even go from "lord of that realm" to "lord of pulling this lever"? [21:27]
diana_coman: jfw: anyway, to get back to your earlier statement - I agree that there is still benefit in reducing the proliferation, sure. [21:31]
diana_coman: for that matter there is still benefit in a small number of choices really (and mainly for newcomers since they would not end up wasting time "how do I choose") [21:32]
diana_coman: but what can poor benefits do on their own - as history amply shows, not all that much, no. [21:33]
jfw: ok. What sort of realms was the lordship about then? A set of duties + whatever knowledge or capital required to execute them? [21:34]
jfw: that seems possibly another way of saying "this lever" though. [21:35]
diana_coman: ugh, no; [21:35]
diana_coman: thing is - I distinctly recall it was in #t discussed even with examples from history so I'm not fully sure what can I add precisely to make that clear since apparently it was about as clear as mud, huh. [21:36]
diana_coman: the core point missing in the above though and *precisely the opposite of "pulling this lever"* is exactly... making own thing that one therefore owns, how to even put this clearer; NOT "awaiting for the duties + resources" but building one's own stuff and therefore being the lord of it, ugh [21:38]
diana_coman: and myeah, I can see this "waiting patiently and all-willingly for the duties+resources" - that's how it does NOT work. [21:39]
diana_coman: there's a difference between executing vs coming up with the thing to execute basically; the lordship was precisely meant to recognize the ability and deed of the latter, not the former. [21:42]
diana_coman: sure, quite often and esp in the beginning one does both, but the execute part always comes after the other and there was a huge lack of that other first and foremost. [21:43]
jfw: struggling for what to ask, still pretty confused I guess. So there's no answer to "what sort of thing is one lord of" because it's about each coming up with his own "thing"? [21:53]
diana_coman: jfw: if you ask "of what sort of thing" , the answer would be - of a fief; if you expect that all fiefs are the same, uhm. [21:59]
jfw: would an example be: at first there's no logger; someone realizes logging is important and makes one; sovereign decides it's good and grants recognition of the ability that brought it about (along with, I took it, duty to keep it working / answer questions about it) ? [22:01]
diana_coman: for that matter, the very term "marquis/marquess" comes from ...lord of the march/borders, basically go ye there at the very borders and ...build them up [22:01]
diana_coman: build them up and/or expand them as much as you are able to [22:01]
diana_coman: can't find that #t thread now, grrr [22:02]
diana_coman: possibly trinque can find it since it was precisely the thread re deedbot [22:10]
jfw: http://trilema.com/2016/the-lordship-list-third-year/#footnote_0_64932 re definition of lord + fief [22:12]
diana_coman: ah, finally realised why I couldn't find it, since I forgot about the mp_en_viaje handle, huh; here: http://trilema.com/2020/forum-logs-for-21-oct-2019/#2566637 [22:15]
diana_coman: jfw: and further note that none was ever the case of a random/assigned "pick"; it was always the only way it can even make sense - X comes in and does *on own initiative* some useful Y, the competence is recognised and as part of this recognition they get what is basically *a shot at making money and fame and whatever else they want out of it* [22:19]
diana_coman: apparently though the want was wanting or did that go. [22:20]
diana_coman: jfw: does that make it any clearer? [22:21]
jfw: getting there. [22:22]
trinque: lordship is being one of the authors of culture, and that's it. [23:42]
trinque: the lordship failed because most of the folks involved were not independently wealthy and lacked the time to do said authoring. [23:43]
trinque: meanwhile pretending they had by cramming w/e they could into their evenings and nights [23:43]
trinque: diana_coman: re: "lord of this here lever" I mean that sitting on whatever crap one built and calling that a "fief" is not the authorship above-mentioned [23:46]
trinque: also, because in the past people have assumed I'm excluding myself from statements like ^, I'm most certainly not. [00:19]

jfw: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1026033 - I'd love to have it, if only for safe keeping; and why not publish anyway since you did the work. (/me glares at own pile of unsung code...) That said, I'm not likely to test it any time soon and will probably end up moving toward "mysql all the things" unless a strong reason turns up [02:49]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-17 00:20:31 (#ossasepia) trinque: at any rate, jfw I already did the postgres port if you or billymg want it [02:49]
jfw: some further reading satisfied me for now that the aforementioned psql bias is ill-founded, as diana_coman suggests. My own experience with non-GUI databases started with mysql (back when it indeed didn't have transactions or foreign key constraints, which left a bad taste), and my production infrastructure currently contains two mysql instances compared to zero psql. [02:54]
trinque: because publishing has a certain standard, namely it working. this was just a hack I hammered out one afternoon, will see if I can find it [03:26]
trinque: jfw: yeah, mysql's gotten way better over the years, and most of the rep comes from the early days. [03:28]
trinque: that said psql has proved to me over about a decade of use that it's extremely reliable, and so I tend to prefer it. [03:29]
trinque: one needn't be totalitarian about these things imho [03:30]
jfw: trinque: I'm not in a position to be anyway, but it's a matter of "do I spend my limited hours on learning multiple large things or one large thing better" [03:32]
trinque: totally sensible [03:33]
jfw: trinque: meant to say - publishing doesn't have to be only "finished products"; as diana_coman's often pointed out, it can simply be about what is, or what you're up to, or what you tried, or plans... I've published drafts, dumps of notes, etc., just properly noted as such, and have yet to hear any complaints about these [04:05]
trinque: yup, just working on a different item to publish, not so focused on wp atm. seems billymg has it in hand. [04:14]

diana_coman: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1026029 - I think the matter goes deeper than that; I'll note first that "wealth" is NOT the same thing as cash + assets + whatever else "has X" you come up with, just in case any log reader has such ideas (all history + literature provide *plenty* of examples as to how and why wealth is not essentially a "having" as much as a "being"); perhaps a clearer way to look at it ...

diana_coman: ... is that the people involved still had lower-level problems to solve before they could meaningfully tackle the problems of "lordship", as simple as that; not a matter of "didn't have time, if only someone would have given them this or that or the other", no; ftr and exactly the reason why I even mentioned the original meaning of the term marquis/marquess - those were not going to the sticks essentially because "they were ...

jfw: , the return of ~ [10:17]
diana_coman: maybe I really should change the name thus, it will surely sound at least way more exciting [10:17]
diana_coman: so welcome back to the review then, indeed. [10:17]
jfw: bows, goes to get some sleep, plan will have to come tomorrow [10:19]
diana_coman: sleep well [10:20]
billymg: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2020-05-16#1026033 << i wouldn't mind taking a look, if anything just so i could try it out locally [14:47]
ossabot: Logged on 2020-05-16 19:44:38 trinque: at any rate, jfw I already did the postgres port if you or billymg want it [14:47]
billymg: if no one objects, the next patch will rip out js and whatever features depend on it. this will be similar in absolute terms (LOCs/bytes) to the first major round of trimming [15:17]
diana_coman: billymg: from my point of view js can go without any trouble; the only possibly-useful feature requiring it and that I'm aware of was editing the url of an article from the gui; from my pov the main question though would be - how separate the js is from everything else in the code so as not to take out/break something entirely different, really. [21:00]
jfw: imo if there's to be a web editor anyway, it needs to be able to do all editing tasks (such as that permalink editing), and there shouldn't be any 'dead widgets' (as there are when JS is simply disabled client-side). That's where it might get tricky, but dunno how bad. [21:13]
diana_coman: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1026044 - I do hope that pile of stuff glared back at you, jfw ! [21:20]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-17 02:49:50 (#ossasepia) jfw: http://ossasepia.com/2020/05/03/ossasepia-logs-for-may-2020/#1026033 - I'd love to have it, if only for safe keeping; and why not publish anyway since you did the work. (/me glares at own pile of unsung code...) That said, I'm not likely to test it any time soon and will probably end up moving toward "mysql all the things" unless a strong reason turns up [21:20]
jfw: diana_coman: if it had eyes, it would have. [21:29]
jfw: ftr, jfw finally barfs, as the saying goes. [21:39]
snsabot: (therealbitcoin) 2020-05-18 jfw: Curious game, only way to win is... [21:39]
diana_coman: goes to read latest dramaz [21:42]
diana_coman: lol, I didn't realise trb was alf-tech nao. [21:44]
billymg: diana_coman, jfw: yes, this will be a surgical snip, not a simple `find ./mp-wp/ -iname "*.js" | xargs rm` [21:44]
jfw: billymg: sounds good then! [21:45]
jfw: diana_coman: see, trb is this temple built by lazy ignoramus shitoshi, and it stinks, why doesn't he come back and clean it up for us! [21:47]
diana_coman: dorion: how's that balanced week/time going for you? [21:47]
trinque: what happened to "there is no we, only V" [22:11]
trinque: who gives a fuck who likes whom? write patches, if folks sign, or not, what [22:11]
diana_coman: trinque: I don't think anyone proposed anywhere they would not do whatever code development they wanted to do anyway, or anything of the sort. [22:16]
trinque: sure, I just said that, but in Texan [22:16]
trinque: :D [22:16]
diana_coman: trinque: lolz; fwiw though, there are precious few people actually publishing whatever it is they are doing. [22:18]
jfw: 'Texan' - ah ok, I was scratching head. I certainly have no objections to anyone using or signing my patches! [22:19]
diana_coman: trinque: and out of curiosity, why do you ask if people want it? as above, publish it if you made it anyway and don't intend otherwise to keep it private, no? [22:19]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-17 00:20:31 (#ossasepia) trinque: at any rate, jfw I already did the postgres port if you or billymg want it [22:19]
trinque: I try not to do the open-source "code hucked over wall" thing, but otherwise have no objection. [22:19]
diana_coman: you mean you do code hucked within the walls but not over the walls? lol [22:21]
diana_coman: (I'm genuinely curious, nothing more) [22:21]
trinque: yeah, I have all manner of experiments laying here in there [22:21]
trinque: *and [22:21]
trinque: I published early on the cuntoo project, and that didn't seem to have worked. [22:23]
diana_coman: and what's the cost/downside to publishing them even signed with hucked-shit-key ? honestly, I never ever regretted documenting even shit attempts [22:23]
diana_coman: trinque: that sounds like you expected some specific "worked" and it wasn't that so "did not work" [22:23]
diana_coman: I certainly tried it out and provided feedback; others too; you have it there and used it to support talks eg re tmsros or even why "not that way" ; so dunno - how "not worked"? [22:24]
trinque: sure, got feedback, but it was too big an item to push by myself. [22:25]
diana_coman: sure; what's that to do with publish/not publish though? [22:25]
trinque: I suppose we differ on whether a person that publishes "wp ported to postgres" that doesn't actually work has done something useful? [22:27]
trinque: I personally would feel obligated to make it work if I published. [22:27]
trinque: which is the right pressure for the right item, but not that one. [22:27]
trinque: brb [22:28]
diana_coman: trinque: uhm, why; publish it as "this is my shit attempt that does not work; but I explored this and that and learnt *why* it's not worth it"; listen, there's way more to learn from a published stuff than the "will grab this and it works" [22:28]
trinque: so maybe there's also some narcissism in there too. [22:29]
diana_coman: and as for everything else there is that part where it's *not possible* to tell upfront in *what way* it will turn out useful. [22:29]
diana_coman: possibly; the thing is that the way it looks, you lock yourself into such a narrow thing that indeed, there's very, very little that can get out; honestly, it's not a problem in any possible way for me; I just fail to see how it's useful in the least for you, that's all. [22:30]
trinque: some works take a long time. [22:31]
trinque: for example the one I'm working on as a continuation of the OS thread [22:31]
diana_coman: yes; and there's no need to publish-only-at-the-end; (fwiw I was never naturally "write and publish"; hell, not even naturally "talk") [22:32]

jfw: don't think I used to post-post the plans but then, they didn't used to be that realistic either [21:12]
diana_coman: jfw: technically not used to post-post indeed but to the extent that they ended up anyway ~same result as now when post-post, it raises precisely the question as to what is the actual difference then? [21:15]

billymg: diana_coman (and others who were already using image upload scripts rather than wp's gui uploader): do you see any use for the "Media Library" at wp-admin/upload.php ? [18:49]
billymg: because the way i understand it, if you're uploading your images via scp they won't show up in that list, unless you also have a script that generates the db entries for each image [18:51]
diana_coman: billymg: I don't care about that media library, no [18:55]
billymg: yeah, after seeing the light of bulk-processing images via scripts rather than using the gui i think even for those still using the gui it's a case of http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/22/ossasepia-logs-for-09-Apr-2020#1024027 [18:56]
ossabot: Logged on 2020-04-09 16:14:08 diana_coman: ie make the trunk of mpwp so that I'm 2x more productive using it than whatever entrenched habits I might have, and I'll change the darned habits already [18:56]
billymg: at the moment i'm leaning towards just ripping the whole thing out and including a sample image processing script in a blog post [19:03]
billymg: doesn't see himself ever needing to navigate to "Media Library" tab again after adopting script-based image workflow [19:04]
diana_coman: billymg: the way this went was that previous to making scripts, I'd ~avoid publishing images, pretty much; and tbh given how many images I had to publish with this graphics work, I think I would have made the scripts now if I didn't have them already [20:57]
diana_coman: so yeah, it's really a huge improvement, quite of the usual sort obtained when ditching the gui and actually using command line properly. [20:58]
feedbot: http://trilema.com/2020/a-fost-sau-n-a-fost/ << Trilema -- A fost sau n-a fost ? [21:07]
jfw: I'm not sure; if you remove the ability to do things except by local shell access to the server, does that mean sites like younghands where multiple authors can edit their own stuff with permissions managed by the php are out of spec? [21:14]
diana_coman: jfw: there is that, basically risking a tree-branching on single vs multi-author support [21:19]
jfw: although the part where 'media library' metadata has to be in database but media itself in filesystem, and scp uploading doesn't actually "add it to library", suggests the thing isn't done at all correctly, and cutting it would be strictly beneficial as losing something that never worked. [21:29]
diana_coman: hence my above tree-branching - because it's more the sort of thing that needs not as much a not-cut but a re-work and that might be justified for the multi-author case but not that much for single author. [21:32]
jfw: ah ok. At risk of re-treading old ground - I also wonder if the admin GUI as a whole is justified for the single-author case. I use it, but possibly as an entrenched habit where I'd be better off learning something else [21:35]
diana_coman: that's pretty much where it goes, yes [21:36]
diana_coman: jfw, billymg I guess the main part re gui that I can see needing some proper porting would be the preview [21:40]
jfw: as in, a way to insert a row with draft flag set and derive a preview URL? [21:43]
diana_coman: inserting it with draft flag is fine; the preview url creation is unclear to me currently - I never really looked into how that preview is done [21:44]
jfw: hm, I also wonder if pingbacks work at all when manually inserting. though we know that whole mechanism needs a look [21:44]
diana_coman: I suppose in a way the whole exercise actually turns around how much does one rely on php for admin basically. [21:45]
diana_coman: jfw: heh, pingbacks work since basically this "manual inserting" is what sonofawitch does, after all. [21:46]
diana_coman: and the log article does send pingbacks, I didn't specifically bother to do it or anything [21:46]
diana_coman: though at the same time, the current pingback mechanism is "working" as in it sends about 1/4 [21:46]
diana_coman: so it actually needs a fix anyway [21:46]
jfw: you're sure it wasn't just the once when you combined existing ones into May? [21:46]
diana_coman: yeah, some of the others sent too [21:47]
diana_coman: and moreover, added stuff to it also sent pingbacks [21:47]
jfw: it's smarter than I thought apparently [21:47]
diana_coman: logically speaking it should be a trigger simply, I did expect it to work; the trouble is that it doesn't seem to always trigger, even normally, lol. [21:48]
jfw: I'd found that re-saving an existing article would send incrementally more pingbacks, lolz [21:48]
diana_coman: you know, given the ~reliably 1 in 4, I do suspect it's a sort of rate-limited so each time it triggers, it may end up sending a few more, indeed [21:48]
diana_coman: but I never sunk the time to look properly into it. [21:49]
jfw: right [21:49]
jfw: just grepped the code for sql-based triggers, found none; possibly it 'polls' driven by who knows what [21:51]
jfw: though sql trigger wouldn't be able to do any external thing like parsing html and opening sockets anyway. [21:53]
diana_coman: ah, no, I expect it's a php-trigger, whatever it's called ; [21:53]
diana_coman: anyways, billymg will have fun with it, apparently [21:54]
diana_coman: jfw: how's your plan for next week? [21:54]
jfw: diana_coman: not sure. I liked the idea of taking proper break, but things are possibly warming up with JWRD next week so now might not be the time [21:56]
jfw: I'm finally thawing out the blogging today. [21:57]
diana_coman: if only everything was ready already from past week seeing how it supposedly was needed this week...then it would have been even the *perfect* moment to take a break, exactly to be refreshed for the new work [21:58]
diana_coman: that's pretty much the issue with all the spinning and mucking about and failing to cut cleanly *one way or another*, forever on the fence - in the end instead of getting the best of both /multiple options, it's ~always the worst of them all [21:59]
jfw: mhm. Come to think of it I could indeed wrap some things up and take a couple days [22:00]

billymg: diana_coman: this change plus setting 'posts_per_archive_page' to -1 in your options table should do the trick while keeping pagination working as-is on other pages [15:59]
billymg: diana_coman: that method, get_posts(), already has a check for the db option 'posts_per_page', and it has reference to a query param of 'posts_per_archive_page', but it didn't have a check for that option in the db [16:00]
diana_coman: billymg: hm, I'll try it; I did see the check in query.php but couldn't figure out why it wasn't enough, so let's see if this does it. [16:01]
billymg: diana_coman: yeah, it seemed odd to me that they had it in mind already, with 'posts_per_archive_page', but were not checking that option in the db [16:04]
diana_coman: billymg: in the db though in the option table I can see the posts_per_page but...not the posts_per_archive_page ? [16:04]
diana_coman: a select distinct option_name doesn't list it at all, huh [16:05]
billymg: diana_coman: you'll have to insert it (which is normal afaik, options are inserted as they're set, rather than the full list of options being there with empty values) [16:05]
diana_coman: hm; I would have thought that has a value anyway, not like it's ever empty as such but let's see [16:05]
diana_coman: yaaay, works! thank you billymg ! [16:12]
diana_coman: I still can't quite figure out why are then some options in db and some not (but still checked) and moreover why posts_per_page but ALSO nopaging (or what's the difference between nopaging vs posts_per_page=-1) but anyways [16:13]
diana_coman: clearly billymg's mpwp-fu is much higher than mine [16:13]
billymg: diana_coman: nice! [16:14]
billymg: diana_coman: i don't think there's any sense to be made of it really, your "ball of php" description is apt [16:14]
diana_coman: sadly that's quite likely indeed; but ah, so good to have this finally sorted and off the blog's to-do list. [16:17]
billymg: diana_coman, jfw: re: image upload for the multiple author scenario, i hadn't thought of that but i think in this round of cuts i will leave it in for that purpose [16:18]
billymg: mainly so i don't have to then maintain two forks while continuing to produce patches that would apply equally to both. so i'm thinking better to do the common work first, then fork [16:24]
diana_coman: makes sense to me [16:25]
diana_coman: bvt: it seems I managed to confuse v.sh & co. in the most unexpected way: I have a nice linear v-tree that I press to its last leaf; then I to a new vpatch on top of that (ie with a new version of the code base); the vpatch looks perfectly fine, it's some 430 lines too, not huge, there IS a manifest file that adds one line on top of the previous one (that is as expected corresponding to the previous leaf), all looks well; and then, ... [17:37]
diana_coman: ... if I try to press to this new last leaf, it fails with "Loop among vpatches" for those last 2 leaves - given that the manifest changes correctly, why /how is this possible? [17:37]
diana_coman: there's no output at all otherwise to give a hint more directly as to what it chokes on, but it's rather weird [17:37]
diana_coman: (sadly I can't quite pack the code itself as it's s.mg stuff and currently not public) [17:38]
diana_coman: huh, I think I actually now why - the newer vpatch reverses the changes in *one* file; bvt - did you intend it to claim that it's a loop if ONE file's changes are reversed by a vpatch? I guess it does raise the potentially ugly issue of manifest being a sort of "special" file since myeah, reversing that should not happen but the rest, hm. [17:46]
jfw: diana_coman: sounds like http://fixpoint.welshcomputing.com/2020/adventures-in-the-forest-of-v/?b=IV.&e=#select [19:43]
diana_coman: jfw: indeed; and lol @ coarse error of pilotage; though possibly I'm "abusing" V since I actually use it for code control instead of saving it only for special occasions or something [20:36]
diana_coman: even using it with unfinished code, ugly code, whatever-code, omg. [20:36]
diana_coman: and yeah, comment gets one out of it - but the main issue was figuring out *where* the exact revert was [20:40]
diana_coman: anyway, today I need to go in ~5 minutes; I'll be back tomorrow. [20:42]

bvt: diana_coman: i have an experimental vpatch for that issue that i have written when there was a previous discussion about this. it's not 100% fix of the issue, but should be enough to solve most cases of it. [15:06]
bvt: i have uploaded it at http://bvt-trace.net/vpatches/vtools_vsh_fix_false_dependecies.vpatch http://bvt-trace.net/vpatches/vtools_vsh_fix_false_dependecies.vpatch.bvt.sig [15:32]
bvt: the idea is to 1. maintain refcounts for all the hunks in the vpatch which antecedents are currently determined. a candidate vpatch that matches the incoming hash increments the refcount for the hunk 2. don't exit the resolution loop when all the hunks are 'satisfied' (refcount >= 1) 3. after looping through all vpatches, check if there any any candidate antecedents, whose incremented refcounts are now all [15:38]
bvt: > 1; these antecedents are false/superfluous matches, and can be dropped. [15:38]
bvt: i will do the proper writeup sometime this week [15:38]
diana_coman: bvt: oh hey, that is quick! honestly, I am even still mulling over re what is exactly the correct approach there; the main trouble was one of confusing message since "loop" in my head meant full state rather than single-file-state (hence essentially made impossible by a properly updated manifest file, in itself); possibly at least a warning would be reasonable, but it might really make more sense to talk the matter through & give it ... [20:32]
diana_coman: ... some thought [20:32]
diana_coman: bvt: what's the cost of this change you've made, anyway? esp on large v-trees, does it make *everything* slower since now it has to go through all vpatches at all times? [20:34]
diana_coman: what I mean is: how much slower/how much of a problem and therefore is it the best approach? perhaps it's simply enough to give a clearer error message (e.g. which file is the trouble) and let operator sort it out; btw the *press* at least gave the message but iirc a vtree /antecedent command only did...nothing, silently, which is really confusing. [20:37]
diana_coman: hm, it turns out I have some irl unexpecteds to sort out today, apparently this weekend is not for that irc [20:41]
billymg: does anyone have handy the trilema piece about a business being about handling all the things that aren't seen/thought of? [21:29]
billymg: i think it might have been just a paragraph in a larger article, can't remember [21:30]
billymg: ah, nm, found it http://trilema.com/2019/the-business-and-the-fantasy/?b=a%20business&e=done#select [21:34]
diana_coman: billymg: it's not as much about all the things that aren't seen/thought of but rather a very hard "all the things" (hence, with the implicit "whether seen/though of or not, makes no difference, it's *all* or might as well be none" [22:08]
billymg: diana_coman: good point, and that's certainly how i understood it [22:10]
trinque: there's a misinterpretation possible that isn't mentioned, or I didn't see it in there. [22:18]
trinque: it's true that running a business means exhaustively mapping the territory in which it operates. [22:19]
trinque: it does not mean your capacity to deal with everything you've mapped is infinite. [22:19]
trinque: having the map allows you to decide which thing you're going to handle first, second, ... [22:20]
trinque: mp mentions this elsewhere in re: having the girls order their communication thus. [22:20]
diana_coman: well, nothing is infinite anyway. [22:21]
diana_coman: nor is everything equally important as everything else, certainly [22:21]
diana_coman: Joe65: hello, what brings you here? [22:21]
trinque: true, yet hubris is common. [22:22]
diana_coman: trinque: heh, what set you so hardly against "hubris"? [22:22]
trinque: 10 yrs in my own business plus however many in tmsr :) [22:22]
diana_coman: while I can see at least *some* angle to that however many in tmsr, I advance the possible thought that "hubris" might not be all there is to it; at times it might even have its usefulness! [22:24]
trinque: what'd a case of that be? [22:28]
diana_coman: generically like that - the short-burst overexertion that may be needed to overcome a block; to the extent that there is space and time afterwards to decompress and that short-lived intense burst was exactly what was required, it fits. [22:31]
trinque: hm, I don't disagree with that, so I suspect we have these symbols mapped differently. [22:31]
diana_coman: possibly; it does seem that keeping-in-the-very-real-with-all-its-limitations is a relatively difficult/rare achievement nowadays, I'll certainly grant that. [22:34]
trinque: hubris is when one ignores the gods, which is to say when he orders himself higher in the chain of causes than he is. [22:34]
trinque: yep [22:34]
trinque: incidentally jfw you mentioned that your business was heating up? [22:36]
trinque: curious what's going on there, congrats if so [22:36]
diana_coman: in my experience the correction tends to come *very* swiftly if/when someone gets that sort of "higher in the chain of causes" ideas but it's true that some people are better at ignoring corrections than others. [22:37]

jfw: diana_coman: a review by tonight was probably doomed at the point of not quite finishing things off before checking out on Thursday. [07:03]
jfw: anyway, had a nice day of clearing pine needles from gutters, sawing off boughs that were impinging on suspended cables or otherwise in the way, and a bit of relaxing. [07:07]
jfw: trinque: last I heard, we have verbal agreement to sign from two prospective clients - one for our beginner and intermediate training, and one for consulting on a new corporate IT deployment. [07:10]
jfw: hi _joerodgers, you might need to stick with the Joe65 name for now to stay voiced (if you stick around you'll need to get a GPG key registered). this is a learning place focused on practical & sustainable growth led by diana_coman; there are indeed people here interested in & knowlegeable about Bitcoin among other things, and quite a bit of history - first of all in the logs linked from the [07:20]
jfw: topic, and second from TMSR from which this started as a branch. [07:20]
bvt: diana_coman: i don't have specific numbers, i'd need to test it on something like mp-wp to get them. i did not get noticeable slowdown with linux kernel and vtools, but i did not measure anything, just checked how 'fast' it feels. that's something i intend to do for the writeup. tbh back in the day i barfed looking at the code already, so decided to can it until someone comes up with a real tree with this [09:27]
bvt: problem. [09:27]
diana_coman: bvt: heh, that barfed looking at the code already sounds to me measurement enough to give it some more thinking at the very least before pushing it as part of the main trunk; and the more I think about it, the more it seems to me that the main problem is for now one of better error message first of all rather than necessarily one of "should press it anyway"; I can still make the case for both options but I can also make the case ... [10:36]
diana_coman: ... *against* both options so I'd rather go for the smallest and least costly (from all povs) change tbh - can it spit the name of the file + vpatches involved instead of just shouting "loop"? and to mark this at vtree as well instead of just silently doing nothing? [10:36]
diana_coman: jfw: take up gardening! heh [10:37]
diana_coman: _joerodgers: as jfw said really, there's quite a lot to both logs and, especially, context to make sense of it all; it tends to help/work easier for you if you actively engage though so maybe come around to talk one day from 7pm UTC when I'm more usually around; if you don't have voice, just ask for it in pm (me or someone else who is voiced) [10:41]

diana_coman: cruciform: how's the moving going? [10:57]
diana_coman: whaack: reports seem to work not-bad for guitar practice at least; are you sure you don't want to do anything else at all? [11:00]
bvt: if i liked that code, i would have just released the vpatch immediately with performance benchmark, so i agree with 'case against'. i will look into improving the error reporting code -- this should be possible (with slightly more code in v.sh), though the precise loop analysis would take approximately the same amount of ada code as went into that experimental vpatch. [11:15]
diana_coman: bvt: so maybe not go directly for precise loop analysis then - what are the less-costly-but-still-better-error-message options there? [11:58]
diana_coman: I guess at a stretch, since the offending vpatches are identified, one will just script the "find the matching hashes", not like it's a big deal; only I'd rather not have it on the side, if it can be avoided [11:59]

diana_coman: dorion: lol, at writing, before publishing; that has got to be the shortest possible review of 2 weeks worth of time that I ever saw ! [21:39]
diana_coman: but hm, now looking at it, wtf happened to the categories on yh [21:39]
diana_coman: this is a new one [21:39]
diana_coman: did anyone notice -when did the categories there vanish? [21:40]
dorion: diana_coman I noticed the change today, thought it was intentional. [21:40]
diana_coman: neah, I have to bring them back; only now I wonder just when did I manage to nuke them. [21:41]
jfw: I did not notice that as of my last (May 18) [21:42]
diana_coman: to make it even weirded, they *are* in the db, ugh. [21:43]
dorion: diana_coman I see what you mean now with slowing down, I'll add to it. [21:46]
diana_coman: billymg: do you know where exactly does the UI get the categories /what does it need other than the stuff in the db? [21:48]

diana_coman: huh, what the issue was: apparently the UI relies on a temporary file to gather the list of categories to show; and the VM was low on disk space (unrelated - I ran some other stuff there) and so...this nuked the categories from showing... [22:51]
diana_coman: anyways, space is now plenty, should not run out of it again either, so categories are showing again all fine [22:55]
diana_coman: ftr, nothing was lost/wrong at any time in the db or anything - it was at all times a matter of display, but ugh. [22:56]
billymg: diana_coman: this is for categories on the public-facing www, or in the admin panel? [23:09]
diana_coman: billymg: both [23:09]
diana_coman: they were not showing anywhere, neither in the admin panel, nor in the contributor/writer (ie non-admin user) panel, nor on the www (all articles were shown as Uncategorized) [23:10]
billymg: diana_coman: what was the temp file called? or did you find where it's created/referenced (i wouldn't mind taking a look just for my own understanding of it) [23:10]
diana_coman: funnily enough (and the ~only clue I had that something funny was going on) was that the whole interface otherwise correctly named the *default* category in other places (eg where it warns that deleting a category does not delete the articles) [23:11]
diana_coman: billymg: I didn't dig that deep so unfortunately I can't help you there much; basically I checked everything in the db including that all had the correct parents etc; I checked that it was even as it had been before; then I noted that discrepancy; so looked around at what *else* could be the trouble [23:12]
diana_coman: at any rate, I think it's a lousy way this is done and I can't quite understand why would it be done differently than all the rest or wtf does it need now disk space for [23:13]
billymg: diana_coman: hrm, seems bizarre indeed [23:14]
diana_coman: it's true that I never managed to run out of space on a blog-running machine but then again, this is kind of a special-situation-machine by all measures. [23:14]
billymg: definitely seems strange that the lits would be written to a temp file and not just in memory [23:16]
billymg: list* [23:16]
diana_coman: has always had trouble with categories & wordpress [23:17]
diana_coman: I don't know why did they mess them up so much [23:17]
billymg: diana_coman: how was the ram utilization doing on the box? [23:17]
diana_coman: billymg: uhm, I didn't check specifically; there was though nothing special running at the time (the script that had gotten the drive full had finished anyway) [23:18]
billymg: needs to look closer at this in the code, but at the moment is focused on just ripping out all the js cruft [23:18]
diana_coman: billymg: no rush with this as such; it was a wtf-moment but admiteddly, out-of-disk-space is not an usual state anyway and generally gets sorted before it causes this sort of wtf. [23:20]

diana_coman: spyked: you know, I had just found out about Stanasila and then saw your article and thought it's too much coincidence not to be about him too; other than the course we had with him though, I could never quite figure out if/what he managed to build otherwise in that hole, to me he seemed rather one of the few exceptions to be grateful for. [14:17]
spyked: diana_coman, there's a small group there that teaches math properly... or it still was when I last looked. other than that, it depends how much patience you have to dig through academic journals, iirc he co-authored some stuff 3-5 years ago. [14:27]
spyked: well, I'm not sure that teaching is going to amount to much, it also requires willing students. [14:27]
diana_coman: spyked: ah, I'm sure research wise he had contributions and otherwise the well known textbooks/workbooks at the very least certainly stand for "built"; what I meant was specifically at UPB - maybe it was just my very limited understanding of the whole environment at the time but he was very little visible other than that 1 course. [14:34]
spyked: iirc he actually retired in 2008 or so, I think he was already old by then. but almost all of the people teaching analysis in UPB were his students; the ones who remain were his colleagues, lol (tbh, I'm surprised to hear Flondor is still teaching) [14:48]
diana_coman: ah, he certainly was already quite old when I met him, yes; that was though ~2002 so possibly not yet retired; re those teaching analysis/anything else there nowadays, I am not really up to date. [14:51]
diana_coman: not sure otherwise anyway what does "his students" mean in the sense that yes, there was that 1 course so I was his student too; for all my preference for the course, it was nevertheless a very, very small part of the Maths learnt in those years so not really sure if it's all that appropriate otherwise to claim "his student" [14:53]
diana_coman: (and I suppose ~all in the same year as me could by the above token claim they were his students, but uhm) [14:55]
spyked: diana_coman, people with whom he worked closely, taught them the trade, brought them up. [15:38]
spyked: or conversely, people who wanted to learn the stuff he taught. as opposed to people who were nominally "students", but weren't interested. [15:40]
diana_coman: the first would be the definition I normally agree with; and in this sense I wasn't his student; I'll believe you if you say (some of) those teaching now analysis there, have been. [15:43]

diana_coman: jfw: what's on the agenda for this week in the end? [21:07]
jfw: diana_coman: I was trying to work that out just now, but pretty much got to feeling down about the seeming futility of getting myself to follow a plan anyway. [21:21]
jfw: dunno what I have against gardening but it hasn't made it onto the draft yet. [21:22]
jfw: we did have the first lesson for a beginner training client yesterday, which was refreshing, I've got some things to tend to on that [21:23]
diana_coman: jfw: hm, better curious than down about something like that, it's not unchangeable nor without some causes; anyways, how about leaving the plans be for now and draw up instead the summary of the week/day to see what "plan" emerges out of the free-form [21:28]
diana_coman: tbh considering the trouble you seemed to have in cutting stuff out of the plan because "it should be there", I suspect at least some significant part of the "can't follow a plan" stems from that really - it's not that you can't follow a plan, it's more that you can't bring yourself to plan for what you'd follow rather than for what "should be" [21:29]
diana_coman: great to hear your beginner training client started, that's good news anyway. [21:30]
jfw: thanks, and yeah, could be! [21:30]
jfw: for summaries do you mean my choice of weekly or daily, or what? [21:31]
diana_coman: jfw: ideally daily but literally take max 15 minutes to put it together (can even be as a comment at last article of yours or something) so at the end of the week it's there and therefore the "plan" whatever it was is clear enough; is that doable? [21:32]
jfw: ("could be" I meant about planning for what I'd follow. I should remember by now that 'saving typing' by leaving out context doesn't really work out...) [21:33]
diana_coman: jfw: I got that, no worries there. [21:34]
jfw: diana_coman: yep that's doable. [21:35]
diana_coman: so please do it then, starting today with yesterday's summary so it's a full week by Friday and then there's something to have a look at. [21:37]
diana_coman: jfw: what's thawing blog-side? [21:37]
jfw: I will. On the blog, I'd started on writing up a fairly simple "eatblock" script for bitcoin, can possibly get that done today [21:39]
diana_coman: sounds good [21:40]
diana_coman: and then publishing that wallet? [21:40]
diana_coman: :P [21:40]
jfw: for sure :) [21:40]
diana_coman: to quote last October's words [21:43]
sonofawitch: 2019-10-26 18:00:59 (#ossasepia) diana_coman: because you know, I can let you slide and take a whole month on one post; at that rate possibly we'll get to have a look at your software sometime before I die of old age or something. [21:43]
jfw: wallet reminds me, I need to redo some genesis patches to follow the project name subdir convention [21:44]
diana_coman: jfw: so what happens in cases like this (ie with this sort of reminder coming unexpectedly)? [21:45]
diana_coman: speaking of remembering stuff, hm; dorion any chance you'll still write that hunting article or what happened to it anyway? [21:46]
jfw: diana_coman: in this case I'd noticed earlier it needed doing, but hadn't mentioned it. Not sure what happens there in general. [21:48]
diana_coman: do you keep some sort of list and add it there? or make a note mentally (in principle; aka if it doesn't fade away, it might get done)? or do you drop whatever it was and do it? none of those? [21:49]
jfw: pretty much the make a note mentally I'd have to say. [21:50]
diana_coman: so either it's then basically taking up mental space or otherwise it's in the category ~"if it's truly important, I'll surely get annoyed with it enough to do it in the end!" [21:52]
diana_coman: it works, I know; not very efficiently, but it sort of works while there is enough slack otherwise, indeed. [21:52]
jfw: I've sometimes kept a todo list but it eventually ends up the list of things I wish I'd do but probably won't anyway... [21:53]
diana_coman: well yes, the list itself does not change the above; it goes the other way around ie only when you have (for whatever reason) enough of the above, only then the list (or other device/system) will come in handy too [21:54]
diana_coman: (this is not to say the change-genesis is now some very urgent or must-do-now thing, just in case it's not clear) [21:55]
jfw: you're saying the system comes in handy once there are more important/annoying things than fit in the mental space? [21:56]
diana_coman: the system comes in handy once the current efficiency level is not enough for yourself anymore; whether that's because there are more important/annoying things than fit your mental space or whether it's because the available time is less than the work you absolutely find you must do or whether it's for any other possible reason matters less [21:59]
jfw: makes sense, it changes once it has to [22:01]
diana_coman: pretty much; the part worth also saying in clear is that whether you push it towards some "has to" or quite push it at all times the opposite is your choice too. [22:04]
jfw: such as by choosing to take up responsibilities or not? [22:06]
diana_coman: come to think of it, there's something in there linking even to that older question re systematic curiosity, hm. [22:07]
diana_coman: jfw: such as that indeed; such as pushing towards or away from what seems unpleasant/uncomfortable [22:09]
diana_coman: linking it to what likes actually mean ie habit and existing adaptation, it's hopefully quite clear why the need to change is unlikely to come that much from what one likes, huh. [22:12]
sonofawitch: 2020-05-13 21:57:02 (#ossasepia) diana_coman: so many likes are a matter of habit (and deeper than that - a matter of wider specific adaptation really) that it's not really all that hard to throw people off if you want to; part and parcel of having lived in many places though is getting to see just how much of what people claim otherwise as fixed and "the truth" and all that is in the end just a matter of context really. [22:12]
diana_coman: anyways, the tiny bit that started this thread quite went already longer than the genesis-change example itself has legs; so it can certainly take a rest. [22:15]
jfw: alright yeah, all seems to make sense but a bit abstract for me so far. [22:16]
jfw: possibly misparsed on log import? http://ossasepia.com/2020/04/20/ossasepia-logs-for-02-Sep-2019/#1001032 [22:47]
sonofawitch: 2019-09-02 19:14:01 (#ossasepia) diana_coman: will be back tomorrow\\x01 [22:47]
diana_coman: jfw: looks like that, darn; thanks for pointing it out, it'll have to wait until I get to look at that again. [22:51]
jfw: np. [22:51]

diana_coman: !!up yrctest [20:38]
deedbot: You may not !!up yourself. [20:38]
diana_coman: !!up #ossasepia yrctest [20:38]
deedbot: yrctest voiced for 30 minutes. [20:38]
yrctest: waves at jfw [20:39]
yrctest: jfw yrc looks pretty neat, once the bit_length trouble was sorted; the lack of tab-completion though sucks. [20:48]
jfw: diana_coman: hey thanks for testing [20:54]
jfw: the tab completion is one among several noted sucks. maybe I'll give the whole thing another pass soon [20:54]
diana_coman: jfw: no worries; now I realised I should give it another go on 2.16 after the fix to that bit_length, huh [20:55]
jfw: weird that you got that error on 2.7.16; I'm running on a Debian 2.7.3 and otherwise tested on 2.7.13 [20:57]
jfw: and I woulda thought bit_length would be some efficient internal thing, not "convert to binary string and count digits" lol [20:58]
diana_coman: jfw: well, not that I *expected* it was that but ...such said the docs, why would I argue with them. [20:59]
yrctest: would you look at that, it works with python 2.6.6 too! [21:02]
jfw: oh I see, it's "equivalent to" that but the 2.7 implementation is indeed internal. [21:02]
jfw: nice! [21:03]
diana_coman: huh, I basically "backported an irc client, in one hour!!11" [21:03]
diana_coman: well, alternatively it may be called "messing about with python and irc for one hour" but anyways [21:05]
jfw: well seems to be messing about with a useful output at least. [21:08]
diana_coman: tsk [21:09]
diana_coman: jfw: ftr it was the neat layout of yrc that got me to look at that bit_length thing a bit more [21:09]
jfw: diana_coman: good to know. and no 'ncurses' involved either [21:10]
jfw: diana_coman: what was the 'tsk' to there - the devoicing? [21:12]
diana_coman: jfw: indeed, no (n)curses either; and yes, tsk was to deedbot [21:12]
diana_coman: I guess now I got yrc working even on 2.6.6, I'll just have to switch, huh [21:13]
diana_coman: jfw: unrelated - that "plan" took me all of 10 minutes to write down for you; what do you usually polish so much at a plan to take 0.8 hour and still not be done with it? [21:15]
jfw: tug-o-wars over 'I should do this, that and the other but am I really going to?' [21:16]
diana_coman: so ditch the "should" directly and see what happens? [21:18]
diana_coman: rather than forever wasting time on the hesitation to ...admit it because in practice it's anyway what it is. [21:19]
jfw: right. [21:20]
diana_coman: wb joerodgers [21:23]
diana_coman: !!up #ossasepia joerodgers [21:25]
deedbot: joerodgers voiced for 30 minutes. [21:25]
diana_coman: joerodgers: how was/is reading around here? [21:27]
joerodgers: I am still not sure how to get the most value out of this channel. As an outsider, It is quite intimidating. [21:28]
joerodgers: I desire more knowledge and personal development but I am not sure how to engage [21:29]
diana_coman: a bit like everywhere else meeting new people - talking helps best; what /why do you find interesting re bitcoin or what's your link to it? [21:31]
diana_coman: jfw: you do realise that if I switch, then in all likelihood, I'll whine and whine until you do get that tab-completion done, right? [21:32]
jfw: diana_coman: entirely. [21:32]
diana_coman: (and then if it works, I'll therefore have to hire an army of whiners to get jfw to do some work!!111) [21:33]
diana_coman: joerodgers: do you write anywhere on the web/do you have any website/blog? [21:33]
joerodgers: I am interested in the economic, political, and philosophical impact Bitcoin will bring to us [21:34]
jfw: diana_coman: they say the squeaky wheel gets the grease... not sure it works if all the wheels are squeaky though [21:35]
joerodgers: I curate Bitcoin articles in a monthly journal [21:35]
joerodgers: I am trying to find my voice, but I have never been a profound writer. The website it here: https://bitcoinwords.github.io/ [21:35]
diana_coman: re intimidating - I get it, but the only cure for that is simply to interact (and worry less about the outcome as such) [21:36]
joerodgers: Sure thing! [21:36]
diana_coman: joerodgers: why on github.io? [21:36]
jfw: github is a journal now!! [21:36]
joerodgers: It offers free hosting [21:36]
joerodgers: Yes, I have received plenty of "constructive" feedback on my choice of platform from our friends in asciilifeform [21:37]
diana_coman: joerodgers: heh, the way towards "a profound writer" is to look a bit more at what things like "free" mean in their context [21:38]
diana_coman: joerodgers: ahaha, mind giving me the gist of that feedback? [21:38]
joerodgers: I understand there are tradeoffs to my choince in putting a website on gh [21:38]
joerodgers: the gist... "why gh noob, fuck microsoft, git is not for that!" [21:39]
joerodgers: haha [21:39]
diana_coman: joerodgers: well, tradeoffs are there to ~everything; the question is more 1. why do you want to pour work into something that apparently can't ever even pay for own hosting 2. what does free in that context actually mean ie how exactly are you in fact paying for the service there since you do not pay for it with money (because pay for it you still do) [21:40]
diana_coman: joerodgers: lol, I see, the very constructive and helpful indeed. [21:41]
joerodgers: You are right, and I have justified my choice by lack of technical knowledge to self host. The project is highly portable and I have several backups. I am less interested in my choice of hosting provider and more interested in the impact of Bitcoin us all [21:43]
diana_coman: lack of knowledge is most easily fixed though. [21:44]
diana_coman: joerodgers: what does it mean "interested in the impact of bitcoin on us all"? I suppose the Bitcoin category on trilema.com provides ample discussion and commentary on that from a rather authoritative source [21:45]
joerodgers: I am still reading through the trilema archives. I found the summary on ossasepia.com and that was helpful. [21:46]
joerodgers: Specifically I am interested in how Bitcoin and sound money will change human behavior, I believe it will be for the better [21:47]
diana_coman: you know, leaving aside all the ??? I get visiting that bitcoinwords site (unicodes I suppose) and all the lol of x minutes to read and even a lot more else... what exactly makes those words there worth reading in the first place? it's really not a problem of too *few* words otherwise on bitcoin (or on anything else really) [21:49]
diana_coman: or how do you even perceive that "there's too little and in danger of being lost omg",huh [21:49]
diana_coman: if anything, ~everyone drowns in *too much* (and most of it rehash, just like e.g https://bitcoinwords.github.io/economics-has-lost-its-way - and it's really just one example picked at random, not specifically meant to single it out in anyway) [21:50]
joerodgers: I think there is a lot of noise out there. I am trying to build a high signal library for current and future Bitcoiners. I think (hope) Bitcoiners will find value to be able to open a journal in 5 years and see what we were talking about [21:50]
diana_coman: joerodgers: for the better..of what? heh [21:50]
joerodgers: Better overall. Low time preference has changed my life. [21:51]
joerodgers: I am more focused on health, family, personal development, and saving... plus many other things [21:52]
diana_coman: joerodgers: bitcoiners as in people-actually-involved-in-bitcoin would rather read the words of those past bitcoiners eg on their blogs, don't you think? I know there is this old model of "editor and curating" etc but uhm, that was also in a rather different context [21:52]
diana_coman: joerodgers: what is "low time preference"? [21:52]
joerodgers: I will answer you, I have a call with my team I must prepare for! [21:53]
joerodgers: brb [21:53]
diana_coman: ah, no worries; can wait until tomorrow too, not a problem at all. [21:53]
jfw: learns (indirectly) from https://bitcoinwords.github.io/101/ that the Nakamoto Institute guys fell out and rewrote their founding to include Cody Wilson rather than Daniel Krawisz [21:54]
diana_coman: ftr, I read 5 times by now this "If you find WORDS helpful, Bitcoin donations are unnecessary but appreciated." and I'm still in wonder at its twists. [21:56]
diana_coman: for balance-of-twisting, may I suggest it changes to "if you find WORDS unhelpful but appreciated, Bitoin donations are unnecessary but appreciated." ? [21:56]
diana_coman: jfw: ahaha, it's ok, nobody reads it anyway [21:57]
jfw: hehe [21:57]
diana_coman: joerodgers: what's with the splitting of "paragraphs" by count of lines (3 lines each, apparently) rather than by meaning? It reminds me of those housewives bent on "tidying the bookcase" by sorting once and for all those pesky books by size, wtf does content matter!! [22:01]
diana_coman: joerodgers: oh, hey, is this illustration your work? [22:05]
diana_coman: jfw: here's further reason for why gardening is totally part of the plan: "it’ll take a small team of engineers who quietly maintain the software like a constant gardener" [22:07]
diana_coman: huh, that "Links" thing reminds me of fain [22:10]
diana_coman: in principle, though I doubt in practice [22:10]
diana_coman: joerodgers: why not give directly the actual link of your blog? ftr it's at least way more readable than that words thing. [22:13]
jfw: diana_coman: gardends are made to last forever apparently? at least if they're not busy getting hacked all the time [22:15]
diana_coman: as to the "shorter time preference" (which is in there, too!), it's more of a must than a preference when all one has are leaves to pay with - either now or watch them be worthless tomorrow, sure. [22:15]
diana_coman: jfw: apparently! the weeds of hacking in thy garden!! [22:16]
diana_coman: anyways, I shall conclude here my opportunistic hike through the internetz at large as it's quite enough for one day, lol [22:18]
diana_coman: will be back tomorrow [22:19]
jfw: Anyone know of a decent sub-line-level diff tool? it's a wonder that I still don't have any other than ...git [22:54]
jfw: last I checked I turned up only libraries and GUIs [22:56]

diana_coman: whaack what is of most interest to you? [21:03]
whaack: diana_coman: I am not sure of the answer to that question, but a few things come to mind. First, I want to work on some project that replaces TheFleet - and I think that should be the currently-dormant "build an otc network" plan. A concrete goal would be to sell 1 btc by the end of the month. I am also interested in finding another source of income. A prospective business is escape-the-us-to-cr [23:38]
whaack: consulting. (A birdy told me that billymg was toying with this idea as well.) Apart from that, I'd like to continue my Spanish and guitar studies and return to writing more on my blog. [23:38]

  1. Lmao, now I'm getting trackbacks from the auto-blogged logs of the channel in which the rss feed of my blog is published.

    SO META! Lajos (of Lajos fame) would be proud.

    But anyways, faithful to the method, since it pinged me then I read it, disinterest notwithstanding.

    Seems there's something going on with the formatting of that link to trilema.com/how-to-live-to-be-rich/ above ?

  2. Diana Coman says:

    It does tend to get very meta indeed, what can I do. Not sure though, here the link looks fine - what is wrong with the formatting of that link where you see it?

    Meanwhile I did switch it to monthly so there should be no more deluge of them.

  3. Nfi, the article I commented on was different (among other things, much shorter).

    Musta been some glitch that meanwhile resolved.

  4. Diana Coman says:

    The longer length is because this one already gobbled up the previous 2 days so it's full May but otherwise there wasn't any change to the link as such - sounds like some glitch indeed. Weird.
