mircea_popescu: first!
mircea_popescu: how come everyone's up so early, anyways!
mircea_popescu: o wait, that was from earlier. oook :D
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: :p
diana_coman: how come no log though, weird
mircea_popescu: what log you mean ?
mircea_popescu: holy shit i had to take out [] style links from my latest trilema draft.
mircea_popescu: that format;'s infectious!
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: as in: had nothing to read before breakfast! at all, eleventy11!
mircea_popescu: it's the end of the world
mircea_popescu: as we know it...
diana_coman: I keep getting the order wrong on those damned [] and so having to check it every time
mircea_popescu: same as for href = url, anchor.
diana_coman: that should help, ty.
mircea_popescu: (this is deliberately, so a whole field of one can be converted to the other without needing lookahead parsing, just s///g will suffice)
bvt: lobbes: please test the following vpatch: ; i'll have time for a writeup only on the weekend. this vpatch is only lightly tested so far.
spyked: <-- neato! are these chan-boards open sores? prolly worth stealing the coad while at it.

mircea_popescu: spyked, i have a phpball somewhere from the fain days
spyked: ah, cool
auctionbot: Buy order # 1057 has ENDED: item as described in and following. SOLD by lobbes for 100mn ecu. Attn: mircea_popescu
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 04:57:27 mircea_popescu: so : who would like to do a spot of work for hire for me ? the ideea is to write and publish as a vpatch a stan logbot extension which a) processes search, through talking to a [presumably present] mysql server, and spitting out the results (formatted as in
mircea_popescu: lobbes, you know, it's technically speaking sold ~to~ lobbes.
mircea_popescu: though i agree, a minor point.
mircea_popescu: anyways -- when are we looking at delivery ?
spyked: <-- iirc the irc spec states that server sends ping when client is idle. src: (should be under 4.6.2 Ping message)
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-06 21:37:44 trinque: probably the situation was that most times server doesn't ping if client has already.
spyked: <-- why ty! well, I'll have to remove the fonts from the theme when I genesize thetarpit, because binary.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-07 12:54:41 billymg: << completely true, and i agree with asciilifeform, i'm a fan of The Tar Pit's theme (i'm also partial to trinque's theme)
mircea_popescu: spyked, could also base64 i guess
mircea_popescu: << in other news, dorcel's still pretty cool.
feedbot: << Trilema -- Successive strata of castlebuilding (spoiler : they decay over time) as part of a narrative on the greatest Italian circus in Romania and teenage sexuality
spyked: hm, base64
spyked: that might work, actually, given that the fonts don't ever change
mircea_popescu: aha.
lobbes: << ty bvt! I will test this weekend (unless alf beats me to it)
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-13 07:55:02 bvt: lobbes: please test the following vpatch: ; i'll have time for a writeup only on the weekend. this vpatch is only lightly tested so far.
lobbes: << Nein. I'm selling the ~work to you~ for 100mn ecu, hence sold ~by myself~ :D
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-13 08:17:25 mircea_popescu: lobbes, you know, it's technically speaking sold ~to~ lobbes.
lobbes: << now this I want to get right. I have a piss poor history of time estimation, so I don't trust myself atm to give a proper one.
ericbot: Logged on 2019-09-13 08:17:35 mircea_popescu: anyways -- when are we looking at delivery ?
lobbes: How's this: I'm going to begin by attacking Thing 2 in this comment (grr the new server-side selection does not work for comments it seems?), after which I should have more info on my ability and the time it should take. I can give you a better estimate then I hope
mircea_popescu: oh ic
lobbes: wait, which do you see?
mircea_popescu: the by / to
lobbes: aa
mircea_popescu: as to the rest, alright, i wait
lobbes: re: the by /to, I remember that being figured out from the pizarro auctions
mircea_popescu: i have pie, and sluts, and a whole web of plans and complots & conspiracies to alleviate the expectation
lobbes: re: the rest aite! sounds like a plan
lobbes: haha now that is a life
mircea_popescu: maybe i'll just have the girls try on all the stockings in the house
mircea_popescu: that should give you a dozen or so hours :D
lobbes: thems a lot of stockings
lobbes: well, I'm off to mines to do nothing as interesting. bbl

feedbot: << The Tar Pit -- Common Lisp WWWism summary
mircea_popescu: lotta work spyked .
mircea_popescu: you know, by the way, curl can make a heavy load for you any time you so feel like.
mircea_popescu: "without much effort" isn't meaningful. "in one week of six hour days". something.
mircea_popescu: anyway : i'm willing to bet migration ~will~ be trivial ; and i am very curious to find out why not if indeed not
mircea_popescu: re echo '<a href="' . $url . '">' . $description . '</a>'; << nothing keeps you from doing print_url(x y z) if you want to. you'd have to define that function, of course, but this is true in lisp and any other language as well.
mircea_popescu: the greater point being that ad hoc php by iliterates is not different from ad hoc perl or c or bash or lisp for that matter, why's it the computer's fault ?
mircea_popescu: php CAN handle cascading templating, the reason it's never seen is because anyone who can be bothered to do such things is not there to do it, but too busy fucking tghemselves in the ass with obscure dildos ; in romanian this is called "pe cind se potcovea purecele cu 99 oca de fier la un picior".
mircea_popescu: why'd a flea need that much iron shoeing ? lest it jumps too high, of course.
mircea_popescu: but if you want to do things in the style of print(url, list-of-params) whereby print_url(list-of-params) is called printing the list as an url, you definitely can.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: interesting slavicism there, that horseshoe, potcoava, is really подкова (literally, 'under-smithing')
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: is there a native romanicism that goes with it ? ( as in the 'vrem/timp' pair )
asciilifeform: ( oblig . )
snsabot: Logged on 2018-12-05 10:04:37 asciilifeform: likes marshak's translation 9000x better than the orig.

asciilifeform: lobbes: added ericbot to colourizer list .
asciilifeform: current list on dulap .
diana_coman: ha, there should be a botbot :P ty asciilifeform for the list, I'll update mine too.
asciilifeform: diana_coman: yw. when we crack the url puzzler and import era1 , will also need historic bots in there.
snsabot: Logged on 2019-08-29 03:37:54 mircea_popescu: dun have to be solved today, we'll live for quite a while as it stands.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, nope, slavic only.
mircea_popescu: Șăineanu (1920s) actually gives your exact etymology, [Slav. PODŬKOVŬ, din PODŬ, subt, și KOVATI, a făuri].
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: did ro ever have a 'lang purification' wankmovement a la greeks, czechs, norwegians ?
asciilifeform: 'get the barbarisms out!11'
mircea_popescu: notrly. they did however do an idiotic antisemitism thing ; the guy is actually Eliezer Schein ; and other than one of the precious few, subdozen romanian linguists ever worth the mention, aslo spent most of his life trying to be naturalized and not managing
mircea_popescu: eventually moved to france.
asciilifeform: funnily enuff the j00z in nyc did have one, they iirc tried to standardize a yiddish minus slavicisms post-war
mircea_popescu: the reason rotards didn't do, incidentaly, is not wisdom but idiocy : so many completely iliterate attempts to "systematize" lang, there was no fucking need or rather, practical possibility of directed activity like you're describing
asciilifeform: (made approx as much sense as to try an' standardize navajo, but nobody asked asciilifeform)
mircea_popescu: much like the man on pcp running up and down the sidewalk punching out imaginary flying trees is way too busy to kill himself properly speaking.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: was asking re attempts, rather than success ( consider the greeks' 'success' )
mircea_popescu: yes, but need a certain conceptual stability to attempt. i suppose the most systematic was late 1800s, latinization a la i h radulescu.
mircea_popescu: was broadly derrided as insane.
asciilifeform: they pounded on it until the pins bent and it went in, eh
mircea_popescu: "degitlegau" (lit, ofnecktierer) instead of the "alien" cravata (tie)
mircea_popescu: nobody ever used it other than for humour tho
asciilifeform: !q s uncleftish beholding
snsabot: 1 results for "uncleftish beholding" in #trilema
mircea_popescu: aa.
mircea_popescu: aha*
mircea_popescu: btw, happy friday the 13th
