[16:21] <Qcoder00> ;)
[16:22] <petan> Maryana: slowly
[16:22] <Maryana> heh. you've been busy with a lot of projects lately

[16:22] <petan> derp, you should join dev team :)
[16:23] <petan> new huggle is being written in c#
[16:23] <kim__> NOOOOOO
[16:23] <petan> :o
[16:23] <kim__> please, at least write it in java
[16:23] <kim__> ^^;;
[16:23] <kim__> (I still hate java, but ..)
�08[16:23] <derp> kim__, java is slow.
[16:23] <petan> I hate it even more
[16:23] <kim__> derp, so is c#
�08[16:23] * derp wrote it in Objective C
[16:23] <russavia> Alex Goldfarb, who had arranged Litvinenko's defection from Moscow in 2000 and is now director of Berezovsky's International Foundation for Civil Liberties, emerged as his official spokesman using Berezovsky's PR agency, Bell Pottinger.
[16:24] <kim__> ObjC is not too bad
[16:24] <Joan> Write Huggle as a Web app.
�06[16:24] * kim__ used to use WindowMaker :-)
[16:24] <Joan> Or write a MediaWiki extension that has equivalent functionality.
[16:24] <KimiNewt> That's almost as bad as windows movie maker
[16:24] <Joan> I don't understand writing a separate app.
[16:24] <Qcoder00> Ah KimiNewt
[16:25] <KimiNewt> Qcoder00!
[16:25] <Joan> A separate desktop app, that is.
[16:25] <Qcoder00> KimiNewt:  See query
[16:25] <petan> I do
[16:25] <petan> separate application is always faster
[16:25] <KimiNewt> what querty
[16:25] <KimiNewt> query
[16:25] <KimiNewt> dammit okay
[16:25] <petan> you can't do threaded web extension
[16:25] <Maryana> i don't care what it's written in, as long as it doesn't have the most reverts per hour leaderboard thingy
�15[16:26] * GW|Ping (~GorillaWa@wikipedia/GorillaWarfare) Quit (Quit: GW|Ping�)
[16:26] <petan> Maryana: which tool has most reverts now? twinkle or huggle?
[16:26] <Maryana> huggle
[16:26] <petan> wow
�06[16:26] * kim__ doesn't get this fast or slow discussion, since your limiting factor is always going to be the network :-)
[16:26] <Maryana> at the top
[16:27] <petan> kim__: that's not true
[16:27] <petan> network isn't everything in huggle
[16:27] <Maryana> i'm not sure if it's actually a leaderboard per se, but it definitely keeps track of how many reverts you're doing at the top, in a leaderboard-like manner...
[16:27] <petan> parsing pages takes a lot of time too, it eats a lot of cpu
[16:27] <kim__> Oh fair enough
[16:28] <petan> heh
[16:28] <kim__> I guess I'd have to look at the code
[16:28] <petan> btw I just compiled cluebot

[16:28] <kim__> petan, awesome
[16:28] <kim__> except the DB is gone, right?
[16:28] <petan> I don't think so
[16:28] <petan> we'll see
[16:28] <kim__> there's still an old backup of the db?
[16:29] <petan> i don't know
�03[16:29] * heinrich5991 (~hein5991@unaffiliated/heinrich5991) has joined #wikipedia-en

[16:30] <petan> cluebot is there too
[16:30] <BarkingFish> derp: do you know if any of Canada's english language media is reporting on that vehicle? I searched but couldn't find anything, google's not showing a lot either, only the french language material atm
�08[16:30] <derp> BarkingFish, same here.

[16:35] <ZT> derp what makes an envelope (of all things) suspicious?
�08[16:35] <derp> ZT, most often, powder
[16:36] <kim__> because there's a powder envelope in a car?
[16:36] <kim__> ;-)
�08[16:36] <derp> ;)
[16:37] <kim__> I hope they know what they're doing
[16:37] <kim__> methecooldude, eh? I thought it was being compiled? Shouldn't that have been a compile time error?

�06[16:39] * Queen huggles derp
[16:39] <KimiNewt> Air is dying?

�15[16:52] * Steven_Zhang (~Steven_Zh@Wikipedia/Steven-Zhang) Quit (Remote host closed the connection�)

[17:11] <tommorris> petan: ^^
[17:11] <StevenW> I don't think launch is imminent per se
[17:11] <petan> hey
[17:11] <SteveMobile> Ya know, Telstra and their laggy internet can kiss my ass
[17:11] <StevenW> Petan is good. But Ryan Lane is your man on the WMF side.
[17:11] <tommorris> StevenW: cool
[17:11] <SteveMobile> I have three bars....
[17:11] <petan> tommorris: I will be happy to answer :) at least I would ask Ryan
[17:12] <petan> Ryan is pretty busy, we are in #wikimedia-labs
[17:12] <tommorris> okay, if it's not imminent, then it's not urgent to interview, but it might be nice sometime soon to give wikipedians and non-mediawiki devs a heads up
[17:13] <tommorris> I'm wondering if toolserver devs, those of us who just noodle around with project-specific tools and bots etc. will be able to use Labs?
[17:13] <petan> hm... we just discussed that we probably start a main site where would be more info about that all
[17:13] <petan> tommorris: yes
[17:13] <petan> toolserver tool and bots devs will be definitely able to use it
[17:14] <tommorris> petan: awesome

[17:15] <petan> ah, that's not much :)
[17:15] <petan> I think there is a link
[17:15] <Demiurge1000> thanks, I have an admin :)
[17:16] <Maryana>
[17:16] <Maryana> unicorn!!
[17:16] <Maryana> :D
[17:16] <tommorris> Indeed, I saw the unicorn logo a few weeks ago at the Brighton Hackathon
[17:16] <petan> right, that definitely doesn't contain info for regular people :)
[17:16] <tommorris> there were a few interesting things I gleaned from it
[17:16] <petan> but you could probably find also something there
[17:16] <tommorris> namely, an Amazon EC2 like architecture (all the m1.small etc.)
[17:16] <tommorris> and the frequent mention of Git
[17:16] <tommorris> which is cool.
[17:17] <petan> hm, right whole thing is built on kvm
[17:17] <petan> using OpenStack manager which is managed over mediawiki
[17:18] <tommorris> so, I've been working on writing a nice Python library for toolserver devs to make it easier to write queries for the database
[17:18] <tommorris> (because, as Barbie may have once said, SQL is hard)
[17:19] <tommorris> and also because if I'm particularly tired and someone like Ironholds asks me to look something up in the database, I'd rather write a load of Python than write a load of SQL.
[17:19] <petan> that could be definitely used on labs too
[17:19] <tommorris> it'd be nice to make it dramatically easy to build custom queries, reports and lower the barrier for writing weird niche tools for the communities
[17:20] <petan> hey tommorris if you wanted to know anything else, go ahead :)
�15[17:20] * Falcorian (~Falcorian@wikipedia/Falcorian) Quit (Quit: Leaving.�)
[17:20] <petan> most important is that labs would be divided to test labs for devs and tools labs which would be rather similar to toolserver (bots will be there)
[17:21] <tommorris> no, I was slightly unclear when I first heard about it whether it was just for people working on MediaWiki or whether the Wikimedia projects could use it like they do with toolserver
[17:21] <tommorris> so, yeah, that question has been answered
[17:21] <petan> ah, ok :)
[17:21] <tommorris> I'll think of a few more and pester either you or Ryan with them sometime and maybe put it in Signpost
[17:21] <petan> ok
[17:21] <petan> I will be happy to answer that ;)
[17:22] <tommorris> although I may be treading on Tech Report toes by doing so, I'd love to try and get more interviews with tech folk

[17:41] <tashir> I talked to Rich on Skype, he has ClueBot NG compiling on Wikimedia Labs, and it will probably be running soon, but the ISP wiped the database when they suspended the account, apparently because it was entirely in RAP
[17:41] <tashir> in RAM*
[17:41] <Alpha_Quadrant> Logan_: no, then the vandal would be able to claim that they were responsible for taking out Cluebot NG
[17:41] <juancarlos> Omg wp:deny
[17:41] <tashir> at least money isn't a problem anymore, but the entire neural netowk that figures out false positives has to be re-trained
[17:41] <tashir> which is pretty bad
[17:42] <Logan_> Ouch.
[17:42] <Alpha_Quadrant> the entire neural network needs to get reworked?
[17:42] <Logan_> I hope that means it will be more conservative at first.
[17:43] <tashir> I don't see why the can't use all the previous false positive reviews to re-train it, but perhaps it would be best to ask after they have it running again
[17:43] <petan> tashir: it's compiled now it's waiting for someone to hit the button :)
[17:43] <petan> I don't want to be that person heh
[17:44] <tashir> have you seen the code, petan?
[17:44] <petan> yes
[17:44] <petan> I compiled it
[17:44] <Logan_> petan: has the false positive server been updated?
[17:44] <Logan_> that's key before deploying the bot
[17:44] <tashir> is there a reason why it doesn't write out a ram dump?

[19:18] <Maryana> stevenw, yeah, so i gather...
[19:19] <Peter-C> Copying and pasting various parts from a web page is also a copy vio... right?
[19:19] <Sp33dyphil> I believe so, yeah
[19:19] <Joan> Generally.
[19:19] <LauraHale> Yes.
[19:19] <Peter-C> Yes, thought so...
[19:19] <Sp33dyphil> not when the text comes from a US government source
[19:19] <LauraHale> If the text is licensed the same way, there is a template that can be put in that says it was remixed
[19:19] <Tannerbaum> did Win98 really support 512 mb of ram?
[19:20] <mabdul|ping> Peter-C: yes
[19:20] <LauraHale> So you can copy paste in that instance but the license needs to be there.

[19:23] <Joan> somewhat
[19:23] <SigmaWP> Malinaccier: Supposedly only a select subset of users
[19:23] <Malinaccier> Well it was easy to manipulate :)
[19:23] <Logan_> Malinaccier: I believe it's for all logged-in users.
[19:23] <Demiurge1000> SigmaWP: try speedy instead
[19:23] <Malinaccier> and lots of fun to take in general
[19:24] <kigihpe> but why nto as much as he used to be?
[19:24] <Malinaccier> Logan_: I checked it on another browser to see with my public acct and it was not available
[19:24] <Logan_> Hmm, odd.
[19:24] <zscout370> well, I did that banner thingie and came out with almost 25 bucks
[19:25] <StevenW> I think it uses a MediaWiki API call to only appear to those who have the desired edit count by the researchers
[19:25] <Malinaccier> I made 22 extra bucks in one section, but it didn't pick it
[19:26] <zscout370> so there is food money for Taco Bell!
[19:26] <zscout370> or textbooks
[19:26] <Malinaccier> Lol
[19:26] <Malinaccier> Get taco bell :p

[19:54] <Prodego> pseudo foundation committees can try to though
[19:55] <kim_bruning> it looks like a nice survey. I'm just not getting any data on why it is relevant to wikipedia

[19:58] <kim_bruning> StevenW, once again, sorry if it sounded like I was leaning on you. (in retrospect, if I read back, thats what it might have sounded like)
[19:58] <StevenW> No worries.
[19:58] <StevenW> I understand your frustration about it.

[20:24] <Fluttershy-EN> A database error has occurred. We apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused. The most likely cause of this problem is a search or other operation that took too long. Possible reasons include:
[20:24] <Fluttershy-EN> A search where all words are in quotes. Try searching without the quotes initially or add a few more words outside the quotes to restrict the search;
[20:24] <Fluttershy-EN> An exceptionally large personal watchlist (probably over 10,000 items); or
[20:24] <Fluttershy-EN> Exceptionally heavy load on the database servers.

[22:07] <tashir> if it's a keyword I won't be able to put it on the false positives report page either, will I, or is that exempt from filtering?
[22:07] <slakr> thing is
[22:07] <slakr> we need the full text of whatever you were trying to add/remove
[22:07] <slakr> on whatever article it was on
[22:07] <slakr> and under whatever account you were using
[22:07] <slakr> IRC typically isn't be best place to include all that info
[22:08] <slakr> or ideally the timestamp
[22:08] <slakr> and we could probably find it in the log
[22:09] <Gfoley4> you just link to the falsepos page

[22:12] <slakr> my bad
[22:12] <tashir> it was!
[22:12] <tashir> it could be!

[22:12] <{Soap}> just remove the nowiki tags and use {{tl|editprotected}} insytead

[22:13] <tashir> before I put "the page you were trying to edit" I said [[Talk:Viagra]] because that's what was about
[22:13] <slakr> I mean, realistically, you could also avoid the problem by registering an account and getting autoconfirmed
[22:13] <slakr> yeah ignore the viagra part I was wrong
[22:13] <slakr> it's completely unrelated to that
[22:13] <tashir> am I a doofus for assuming that anyone would actually want to add something useful about Viagra? Oh, okay.
