BingoBoingo going to have to sleep before publishing Pizarro accounting. On the plus side receipts I had placed in a weathered envelope labeled "Keep" have finally been found in a pristine, unlabled envelope. There will be a paddling.
BingoBoingo also stood up the Pizarro www to assist checking the archaeology which is at the stage for checking instead of further digging.
BingoBoingo: It will take a substantial interruption to not have the pre-closing statement published by midnight UTC
mp_en_viaje: peterl & all : would you mind terribly if you referred to your articles, on your blogs, as articles ? it's what they are, i get it, you post them, but calling them "posts" makes about as much sense as calling cars "a drived" and girls "a fucked". you don't go about bars with a "hey, fucked! wanna do shots ?", do you ?
mp_en_viaje: it's bad gtamar, to begin with, what desophistication is this!
mp_en_viaje: gtamar = grammar*
mp_en_viaje: otherwise, diana_coman << is this homework you assigned ?
spyked: mp_en_viaje, it's "post"<->"fuck" tho, innit? so "she was a good fuck" is a closer analogy
mp_en_viaje: heh, i guess that's true huh
mp_en_viaje: i dunno, it fucking grates, on the level of wow kiddos saying "rouge" for rogue and midwesterner 15yos saying "scratch" for "itch".
spyked: tbf, I can see the argument. "article" was already there, so adding the "post" slang is somewhat similar to how romanians added the new meaning for "locatie" in the lang. what's wrong with "loc" anyway
mp_en_viaje: meanwhile in further lulz of very VERY scary mp petrifying engineers,
mp_en_viaje: talk about that culture gap.
mp_en_viaje: o btw, jfw why is your ~comment link(off of 2019-11-05 @ >>>08:38<<<) come with a select preset ?!
mp_en_viaje: oh i see what happened, it just carried over, right right. nevermind.
mp_en_viaje: spyked, i wouldn't say "romanians" did it. piulitia did it, the sort of retarded wanna-be bureaucrat goat. "extorsiunea unui degajament", exactly.
spyked: yeah... well, somehow it stuck.
mp_en_viaje: to whom ?
mp_en_viaje: eg,
spyked: it's commonly used among orcs, even the more educated ones. and well, I tend to pester the people I care about with locatie/loc and inovativ/inovator and so on.
mp_en_viaje: alrighty then :D
mp_en_viaje: can add "sinistru" to the list.
mp_en_viaje: (though, honestly, after that article the ro journo-hos took it out of the news, iirc the trend of "news reporters" calling rando events "sinistru" ended by early 2010s)
spyked: also, "epic", e.g. "a fost epic filmul ala"; "ah, credeam ca a fost liric, bine ca nu dramatic"
mp_en_viaje: that doth grate in romanian. in english by now it's... i guess it won. evidently maddox not that widely read / powerful linguistically
mp_en_viaje: anyways, to fix the tard's definition, since i had to fucking link idiots : epic does not mean "massive and imposing in scale or size". i get ~why~ socialism/ourdemocracy would THINK SO, but it's still not true. epic means "a story of men". quite literally, that's what it is, the discussion of heroes in heroic terms.
mp_en_viaje: while lyrical is a story of women -- which is why it doesn't USE NAMES.
mp_en_viaje: drama meanwhile's what happens when the gods get involved.
mp_en_viaje: in other lulz, hey nicoleci ! check out what i found on trilema :
diana_coman: - technically it was "a blog post"; going for correctness there, I would even question wtf is "blog" anyway, since I get it, binary log except I don't write in binary, what.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-05 04:46:58 mp_en_viaje: peterl & all : would you mind terribly if you referred to your articles, on your blogs, as articles ? it's what they are, i get it, you post them, but calling them "posts" makes about as much sense as calling cars "a drived" and girls "a fucked". you don't go about bars with a "hey, fucked! wanna do shots ?", do you ?
diana_coman: so yeah, it is correct to call them articles and to call the "blog" a book I suppose.
diana_coman: or what, gazette
mp_en_viaje: what's wrong with having a blog fulla articles ?
mp_en_viaje: moreover, what we do has so little in common with what the bleaters call posts... the facebook items are properly called posts. dozen-charactger gibberish.
diana_coman: - oh boy; it's a cribbed-assignment basically, aka he talked in #o nonsense over the head of people actually committed and working on it so I told him to go write on his blog what he wants and otherwise apply if he means anything.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-05 04:49:11 mp_en_viaje: otherwise, diana_coman << is this homework you assigned ?
ossabot: (ossasepia) 2019-10-29 diana_coman: PeterL: and for completion, the application 2-steps process applies to you just the same as to any newcomer (if anything, due to do-nothing history, you start with a minus compared to them).
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, the reason i brought it up being specifically "In the past, software development could be done by applying a series of patches to arrive at a final program state. With v, the patch is replaced with the slightly different vpatch, as described below."
diana_coman: mp_en_viaje: blog is just a made up word as much as post is.
mp_en_viaje: if indeed software could so be developed, then indeed it SHOULD CONTINUE.
mp_en_viaje: things haven't changed because "the present" meanwhile turned into "in the past" through the unyielding workings of jesus' birth ever distancing itself from us at the rate of 1 year each easter.
diana_coman: myeah, except I would much rather give feedback to those who committed and work themselves to use it.
mp_en_viaje: dude doesn't understand why software development ~couldn't~ be done in the past, which'd be the only point making a discussion of v worthwhile in the fist place.
mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, fair enough.
mp_en_viaje: and re made up words... well of course ? i mean, all words are made up, what would be the alternative
diana_coman: yes, but "post" there for all its similarity to "to post to the blog" is just as made up, as far as I can see; a blog post, as there is a newspaper article, dunno; and in the vein of "just as much to do with what they are doing otherwise", wouldn't that hold for articles too?
diana_coman: what, those articles they write in the new yorker or the wired or what
mp_en_viaje: seems to me article's exactly what we're doing.
mp_en_viaje: nah, article is a wider word than that. "articles of incorporation" predates the newspaper / tin alley morti di fame trying to steal it.
diana_coman: ah, in that sense; yes, that would be it indeed.
diana_coman: all right, articles it is!
mp_en_viaje: was my thinking
mp_en_viaje: article (n.)
mp_en_viaje: c. 1200, "separate parts of anything written" (such as the statements in the Apostles' Creed, the clauses of a statute or contract), from Old French article (13c.), from Latin articulus "a part, a member," also "a knuckle; the article in grammar," diminutive of artus "a joint," from PIE *ar(ə)-tu-, suffixed form of root *ar- "to fit together."
mp_en_viaje: Meaning "literary composition in a journal, etc." (independent and on a specific topic, but part of a larger work) is first recorded 1712. The older sense is preserved in Articles of War "military regulations" (1716), Articles of Confederation (U.S. history), etc. Extended meaning "piece of property, material thing, commodity" (clothing, etc.) first attested 1796, originally in rogue's cant. Grammatical sense of "word used
mp_en_viaje: attributively, to limit the application of a noun to one individual or set of individuals" is from 1530s, from this sense in Latin articulus, translating Greek arthron.
mp_en_viaje: in any case, the morphological description of the articulation of thought : a pile of articles, and the web of links tieing them together.
diana_coman: yes, that would be quite it (or it should better be it).
mp_en_viaje: aand in re :

PeterL: mircea_popescu: that is an article that contains a picture of a cat. My point is that you could post something other than an article.
mircea_popescu: yes, and you're cordially invited to do it on facebook. you could similarily cook using something other than a stove -- such as for instance, an open pit fire. you're cordially invited to do that with your berber brethren, rather than indoors. and so on.
BingoBoingo has thought of a blog post as being like a fence post. A structural piece holding together the larger blog as a whole. The poor labeling argument however does carry more weight than my previously private metaphor.
hanbot wonders what a writ really is, after all.
BingoBoingo: hanbot: A writ seems like something determined important enough that the order was issued to have the matter written into a writ.
mircea_popescu: traditionally, the notation behind legal proceedings.
hanbot: right, but is writ:written::post:posted ? does the act of ordering scrub 'writ' of its grating-ness? or is the seemingly obvious connection between written and writ wholly imagined?
PeterL: perhaps post (something posted) is analagous to toast (something toasted)?
mircea_popescu: i think "despatch" is more in the vein of what happened there.
BingoBoingo: English isn't a consistent enough language for me to want to save the noun "post" on blogs through comparison to other English language constructions.
BingoBoingo: If it's going to be saved by comparison, I'm inclined to favor comparison to physical posts. Fence posts, mile marker posts, "woe unto he that digs into this buried gas pipe" posts, etc

lobbes: ty diana_coman for pointing out
BingoBoingo: diana_coman: The process of construction rarely focuses on the aesthetics of process regardless of how much aesthetics factor into the final product.
BingoBoingo: But that is a strong objection because... when is a blog ever finished?
BingoBoingo: Anyways, articles are the future. Noun posts need actual holes dug.

mircea_popescu: whatever, now i know i want it fixed.
mircea_popescu: and in other importan points : asciilifeform is not a ~scientist~. asciilifeform is a scienpriest. the difference between the two is that the scientist follows some kind of meaningful structure of reality, that is communicable. "paradigm" or whatever. the scienpriest simply follows his own internal madness. there's a deep difference between the fisherman who goes fishing because there's fish to be fished, adn the primit
mircea_popescu: ive who buries random objects a foot apart in the dirt, fish like corn cobs alike, because that's what he's doing. even if the former returns empty handed and the latter happens to strike a combination that works, nothing changes : one's human and the other not, one's rational and the other's just some flavour of magician.
mircea_popescu: the difference between the two readily ilustrated by the issue of recourse : if the fisherman fails to fish, he HAS recourse. if the magician fails to summon, he... has no recourse. can "try again", exactly like before. that's all.
mircea_popescu: there is no such thing as scientist "by himself". contrary to whatever mistaken notions poor schooling, science is a purely rational process ; the incommunicably stubborn self-directed bullshit ain't science ~except by accident~.
