06:30 < froodonwheels> Fuck this.
06:31 < froodonwheels> My Internet has been out for nearly 12 hours.
06:31 < foks> OH GOD
06:31 < foks> How have you coped
06:32 < froodonwheels> And phone. Guess how people in this house get jobs?
06:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> wait
06:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> so you are still... alive
06:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I suppose you are abusing your bw right now
06:33 < yuvipanda> Does this pass the notability guideline for catastrophes?
06:34 < froodonwheels> The fact that we pay almost $200 a month and have hours upon hours of down time is upsetting.
06:35 < Susuke_Tamagawa> wow, how many other people get this spotty service? Any way you can change providers?
06:35 < foks> froodonwheels, complain loudly
06:35 < foks> How to achieve anything ever
06:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> a lot of people have a single option for their "fast" internet
06:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> there isnt much room to complain
06:35 < froodonwheels> They monopolise this area.
06:36 < Soapy> hi Frood
06:36 < closedmouth> $200? nice deal you got there
06:36 < ToAruShiroiNeko> 200$ shitty service = win
06:36 < Soapy> susuke: dont know where you live, but
06:36 < ToAruShiroiNeko> at least it isnt over 9000$
06:36 < Soapy> it's pretty common in the USA for high speed Internet service providers to have monopolies or near-monopolies on their service
06:36 < Soapy> if you want to settle for LOW speed, sure, you have plenty of choices
06:37 < Soapy> usually therell be one cable provider, that does TV, Internet, and phone if you really want it
06:37 < Soapy> metro areas and outlying suburbs have DSL, but still usually just one company
06:37 < Soapy> and thats pretty much it
06:37 < froodonwheels> We don't even have a dsl option
06:37 < Soapy> the TV monopoly is much worse of a problem, imo, than the Internet almost-monopoly
06:37 < froodonwheels> It's this, or satellite Internet.
06:38 < Susuke_Tamagawa> But that's mostly because of the cost of putting in underground cables
06:38 < Soapy> but they both lead to higher prices and careless customer service because the company knows youre very unlikely to cancel
06:38 < Susuke_Tamagawa> Is satellite less secure, what's the issue with satellite
06:38 < Soapy> susuke: Im guessing youre not in the USA
06:38 < Soapy> underground cables are pretty rare here
06:38 < Soapy> yes some places have them. like South Florida, because of all the thunderstorms
06:38 < Soapy> maybe in the Midwest too because they also have a lot of thunder
06:39 < Soapy> but the country as whole generally doesnt
06:39 < Susuke_Tamagawa> Now I know, thanks
06:39 < Soapy> oop, I whoised you and you live in the USA
06:39 < foks> Fail'd
06:39 < Susuke_Tamagawa> lol
06:39 < foks> ;)
06:39 < wctaiwan> what's wrong with "failed", foks?
06:40 < Soapy> but underground cables, for power or anything else, are pretty rare generally
06:40 < foks> Es are so mainstram
06:40 < wctaiwan> I suppose the verbification of a noun that's actually a bastardised verb sort of matters...
06:40 < wctaiwan> haha.
06:40 < Soapy> as for satellite Internet, I think it's just slow
06:40 < Soapy> it's a limit of the technology
06:40 < foks> Google Doodle is ace today!
06:40 < Soapy> possibly also unreliable, but I wouldnt know, Ive never used it
06:41 < wctaiwan> ah so that's what bca was referring to.
06:41 < closedmouth> massive latency
06:42 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Soapy everyone should get a fiber connection
06:42 < ToAruShiroiNeko> all tv, phone, internet services should be through it
06:42 < ToAruShiroiNeko> people shouldnt be paying for tv and phone
06:43 < froodonwheels> The phone is voip here.
06:43 < froodonwheels> So no, we shouldn't pay for it.
06:44 < Susuke_Tamagawa> But someone has to
06:44 < Susuke_Tamagawa> and if the government takes over it'll only get worse
06:44 < Soapy> I dont think you can do TV over "fiber"

06:45 < froodonwheels> Google, Comcast, et al. do it.
06:45 < Soapy> Comcast is a cable company, I think.  Google doing TV is news to me
06:45 < wctaiwan> okay, nope it isn't.
06:45 < Soapy> unless youre thinking of Google TV
06:45 < Soapy> which isnt really TV, in my understanding
06:46 < Soapy> it's just a way to access video files on the Internet
06:46 < Soapy> there's no direct access to any live broadcasts unless the network doing the broadcast chooses to make it available online
06:46 < froodonwheels> Google Fiber

06:57 < wctaiwan> probably a long time.
06:58 < wctaiwan> I mean, they can shut down accounts. That's not something torrent trackers can do.
06:59 < Soapy> do they track the name and physical address of their members, so that people could be arrested for uploading pirated software?
06:59 < wctaiwan> probably not, but neither does youtube...
07:00 < Soapy> well most people on youtube have Google accounts, and that requires an email and a phone number
07:00 < Soapy> unless you happened to get in before they added that requirement
07:00 < foks> does it?
07:00 < wctaiwan> Not the latter.
07:00 < foks> It doesn't *require* a phone number
07:00 < wctaiwan> o_O it absolutely requires a phone number now?
07:00 < foks> I don't have a phone and I only got a google account recently
07:00 < wctaiwan> and emai… well, not if you sign up for gmail first
07:00 < Soapy> a new Google/YouTUbe account requires a cell phone number so they can send a text message to confirm your identity
07:01 < wctaiwan> seriously?
07:01  * wctaiwan tries
07:01 < Soapy> lately a lot of sites are doing that
07:01 < foks> I'm sure they can take a second email
07:01 < foks> Not everyone has a mobile phone. As I say, I don't.
07:01 < Soapy> I know
07:01 < foks> I'm waiting on a SIM card.
07:01 < Soapy> I didnt have a cellphone either when I first signed up for gmail
07:01 < Soapy> at least not one with text message capability

07:02 < wctaiwan> nope, doesn't require a cell number
07:02 < wctaiwan> the field is there but it isn't mandatory
07:02 < Soapy> maybe it's a US thing
07:03 < wctaiwan> maybe.
07:03 < Soapy> or they've rescinded the requirement

07:04 < foks> These are really really old emails.
07:04 < Soapy> no getting past it.  And they specifically wanted to confirm your identity with a text message before they'd let you in
07:04 < wctaiwan> I don't like how much control google has over my digital life, though.
07:05 < Soapy> anyway, I think the solution to getting rid of software piracy on shared sites like Dropbox is to require a name and physical address, and some way to confirm it
07:05 < wctaiwan> ugh crap. I just signed up to test, and now I can't remember what password I typed in XD
07:05 < Soapy> that way anyone who'd upload pirated software would be a fool
07:05 < Qcoder02> Soapy : You think peopel would use thier own address? XD
07:05 < wctaiwan> I would never use a nonessential site that requires that.
07:06 < Soapy> there's ways to make sure people arent using fake addresses
07:06 < Soapy> e.g. if you use your real name but someone else's adress when you sign up for a new cellphone contract, you get an error message saying your identity could not be confirmed
07:06 < wctaiwan> would you seriously want a situation like that?
07:07 < wctaiwan> Software piracy, to me, is a much smaller problem than all the privacy intrusions going on.
07:07 < Soapy> no, I wouldnt like it either, but if the alternative is not having file-sharing sites at all, it's worth it
07:07 < wctaiwan> there's always paid FTP.
07:08 < Qcoder02> Soapy: There are ways to get back at software piracy too

09:41 < Qcoder02> So you told them that?

09:42 < The_Thing> Oh, I just posted teh counterclaim like half an hour ago

09:43 < Qcoder02> You should ask YouTube why they are flagging PD material  as copyright... ;)
09:43 < The_Thing> Since the same video has had 3 seperate claims against it, I'm presuming
09:43 < BlastHardcheese> uh, perjury only applies to sworn statements given to a justice of the peace, judge, etc.
09:43 < Qcoder02> 3 claims from diffent companies?
09:43 < Qcoder02> Also isn't it an offence under USC to assert you have copyright when you don't?
09:43 < The_Thing> Yes, Fucks News, Reuters, and some Hearst Television Inc.
09:44 < The_Thing> Looks like the Reuter's claim was just cleared though

10:56 < Tony_Sidaway> Brief mention of temperature changes attributed to the aviation ban here: http://www.airliners.net/aviation-articles/read.main?id=85
10:57 < Tony_Sidaway> But I believe there was a formal study of this, and that's what I was referring to.
10:57 < SoapX> ok
10:58 < SoapX> "Worldwide, contrails are estimated to cover .1% of the Earth’s surface area and that number is forecast to rise to .5% by 20502."
10:58 < SoapX> 20502, eh?
10:58 < SoapX> I guess we're safe for another 18,500 years
10:58 < TeeTylerToe> anyone who has experience in cloud computing is in high demand >.<
10:58 < SoapX> thats probably a copypaste from somewhere that said 2050 with a superscript 2 indicating a footnote
10:59 < SoapX> yeah, definitely
10:59 < Tony_Sidaway> This guy Andrew Carleton of Penn State, who is quoted in the article, seems to be the expert on this: http://www.geog.psu.edu/people/carleton-andrew
10:59 < Wehwalt> Yup, those Penn State climate scientists
11:00 < Tony_Sidaway> Well the only other one I know is the renowned Michael Mann.
11:00 < Tony_Sidaway> But he's a paleo guy. This chap is a physical geographer.
11:01 < TeeTylerToe> so the increase in contrail coverage is predicted to go down by a factor of 100,000?

11:33 < WilliamH_UK> hi BarkingFish
11:33 < WilliamH_UK> you are in germany?
11:33 < BarkingFish> Wait what? you were taking bets on my being back?
11:33  * Fluffernutter maintains that 'crats should be allowed to enforce decorum on RFA
11:33 < SoapX> not really bets, no, because we all agreed youd be back soon
11:33 < Fluffernutter> possibly with whips
11:34 < Tony_Sidaway> WilliamH_UK: they don't make it, but they permit it. Those pages can be controlled completely by the bureaucrats. They can set standards and exclude those who won't behave. And they could interpret discussions using their common sense, and not just count votes.
11:34 < BarkingFish> Yeah, well it's nothing serious, just BA being a bunch of assholes. My flight on monday got delayed. I got moved to fly this morning. Got there and discovered BA hadn't transferred my ******* ticket and wanted to charge me another £349 for the privilege, SoapX
11:34 < Tony_Sidaway> Fluffernutter: they are already empowered to do so.
11:35 < BarkingFish> at which point I told them precisely  what to do with their £349 charge, and got removed by security
11:35 < Qcoder02> BarkingFIsh: So you are flying out on a different carrier?
11:35 < Fluffernutter> Tony_Sidaway: they say that a) they're not and b) even if they were, they wouldn't do it
11:35 < WilliamH_UK> Tony_Sidaway again, not true, they don't do any of those things because if we do, we know that we will be considered exercising draconian control over it
11:35 < SoapX> lol
11:35 < SoapX> sorry though
11:36 < Tony_Sidaway> Fluffernutter: exactly. Supine.
11:36 < SoapX> I assumed you were already in Germany and just couldnt wait to get back on IRC
11:36 < Shearonink> removed by security?
11:36 < SoapX> £349 is a lot
11:36 < WilliamH_UK> when someone makes a fallacious !vote at RFA, look at the comments along the lines of "this obviously won't be taken into account", and more to the point, look how many of them are made by noncrats
11:36 < Shearonink> yeah
11:36 < Tony_Sidaway> WilliamH_UK: and draconian control of a process page is a bad thing since _when_?
11:36 < WilliamH_UK> Tony_Sidaway fair point
11:37 < WilliamH_UK> surely depends on a case by case basis though
11:37 < Qcoder02> BarkingFish:  Fly out on another carrier... and bill BA for the additional cost I would have said
11:37  * SoapX hugs BarkingFish some more even though it wont get him to Germany any faster
11:37 < WilliamH_UK> BarkingFish how on earth did they try to do that?
11:37 < BarkingFish> Eventually yes, Qcoder02 - the problem I have is that the next available flight I can get out is gonna be over 2 weeks away. Shitloads of people heading to germany.

11:38 < WilliamH_UK> send a few public tweets to them about it

11:41 < Shearonink> ouch Fish
11:41 < BarkingFish> Qcoder02, no - but their attitude came very close to aggravating their conditions, I can tell you.
11:42 < Shearonink> I'm fond of VirginAmerica, I'd fly it all the time if I could
11:42 < BarkingFish> I was about 5 mins away from punching the woman on the service desk, when security turned up and removed me.
11:42 < Qcoder02> BarkingFish:   The thing is not to loose it
11:42 < Shearonink> did you make the nightly news Fish?
11:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Shearonink: that's not really true. There are talk pages, user conduct RFCs and arbitration edit pages.
11:43 < TeeTylerToe> on rfa can admins ask editors question and then block them for answering them?
11:43 < Qcoder02> BarkingFish:  Hopefully you aren't now on the No Fly list as potentialy unstable person
11:43 < Shearonink> "almost the only place" is my point
11:43 < BarkingFish> Shearonink, I don't know. There were some guys filming in the terminal, so I may be on the next series of Airline. Who knows.

12:52 < BarkingFish> SoapX, I'd pass on the corned beef, but I'd sure as hell go with Pastrami as the absolute best filler for any sandwich.  Combined with lettuce, onion, tomato and gherkin, a little ranch dressing and slap that lot in a footlong sub, you cannot go wrong.
12:53 < purplebackpack89> BarkingFish: should I ask somewhere else how to fix the Slovakia bk/bk-right template issue?  If so, where?
12:54 < BarkingFish> I've no idea, purplebackpack89 - maybe mention it on the talk page?
12:54 < purplebackpack89> of...
12:55 < foks> Pastrami was a bit shit when I had it in the US
12:55 < BarkingFish> the template, purplebackpack89
12:55 < foks> Well, I mean, it was okay
12:55 < foks> but it wasn't the best thing since sliced bread
12:55 < foks> But then I'm a chicken+mayo man (read: boring)
12:55 < SoapX> yes pastrami is good too
12:55 < BarkingFish> if it's something transcluded into the template, mentioning it on the template's talk page will probably lead to someone investigating where it's buggered, and fixing it
12:55 < SoapX> a variant of the reuben sandwich is to use pastrami instead of corned beef, and all other ingredients the same

12:59 < TeeTylerToe> apparently npr thinks rob portman might be romney's vp because his wiki article is being edited the most
12:59 < diegogrez> Most references about the guy are from the eighties and only some of them are rescued in a Chilean government website. The contemporanean sources are some news articles on his death.

13:01 < SoapX> really?
13:01 < SoapX> lol
13:01 < SoapX> i have a huge appetite

13:02 < RD> !
13:02 < RD> :)
13:02 < SoapX> they have a way of making their subs not messy
13:02 < diegogrez> :(
13:02 < SoapX> if I tried to make the same sandwich at home, it wouldnt work
13:02 < BarkingFish> foks - there's a trick to it.  You get them to wrap the sub nice and tight, so you can rip the top off, eat your way down, and anything that falls out the back, you catch in the wrapping.
13:02 < foks> Ah
13:03 < RD> SoapX: Make a sub, and flush 10 bucks down the toilet
13:03 < foks> Interesting!
13:03 < Tony_Sidaway> SoapX: I think I know what you mean. They're like gigantic sponges (in consistency) whereas domestic bread tends to be crispy and springy.
13:03 < RD> Then it'll be just the same
13:03 < RD> :D
13:03 < SoapX> id never pay $10 for a sandwich
13:03 < RD> I paid 7 today by accident
13:03 < RD> Because I read the sign wrong ... though I think it was intentional.

13:05 < SoapX> it says it's $9.15
13:05 < SoapX> surprisingly low, I thought the pound was almost $2 US
13:05 < Tony_Sidaway> I once worked for Reuters who very kindly paid for all staff (including myself, a contractor) to take lunch at their desks. I had a rather large plate of sushi and a nice big sandwich, and a half litre of orange juice, every day.
13:06 < SoapX> we're still below the Canadian dollar though
13:06 < BarkingFish> so that's a pretty low rate, what's that... about $1.70 to £1?
13:06 < BarkingFish> or less...
13:06 < SoapX> and the Australian dollar!!
13:06 < SoapX> oh the embarrassment. Australia's currency is worth more than ours. Gone are the days of looking at books saying $4.99 US, $9.99 AUS

13:57 < Tony_Sidaway> One thing that intrigued me recently was that Zoltan had a VMS system with a guest account. I gave it a go, but he doesn't have the compilers and stuff. Essentially he hasn't bothered to update his hobbyist licence. So I obtained my own hobbyist licence and installed a VMS instance on my own system under the SIMH simulator.

13:58 < BarkingFish> when this is finished, do you think it would be wise to move to [[List of Yogurty's Froyo branches in Canada]]? Or should we just whack it now?

14:11 < SoapX> but that is not changing my mind about Flash being far superior to HTML 5.0 video formats
14:11 < SoapX> lol
14:11 < foks> flash is shit
14:11 < SoapX> oh come on
14:12 < foks> all flash is good for is bloating your processors
14:12 < Tony_Sidaway> foks: I missed your confirmation. It isn't intended to convey humour, so much as indifference.
14:12 < MartijnH> silverlight FTW!
14:12 < SoapX> Flash is great for games
14:12 < TeeTylerToe> can't html5 use the same video formats?
14:12 < foks> nope
14:12 < foks> html5 is better in every way
14:12 < TeeTylerToe> silverlight is just what a browser like lynx needs
14:12 < foks> Tony_Sidaway, I guessed
14:12 < SoapX> there was a flash game a year or so ago that was a full featured scrolling/zooming Mario platform game
14:12 < MartijnH> TeeTylerToe, sure, it just prints out the bytecode
14:12 < foks> I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to portray, but hoho, a Brit who doesn't like the Olympics, how lovely
14:13 < SoapX> nothing like that is ever going to come from animating fixed-size images in HTML5

14:22 < Qcoder02> Halo might
14:22 < GorillaWarfare> I think we need to create "Category:Users who actually have some knowledge of copyright and aren't bumbling around like the rest of us"
14:23 < Qcoder02> but then practically any  game series based on  quasi-tactical  stuff probably could be a tabletop
14:23 < Fluffernutter> GorillaWarfare, i thin kthat category would be populated entirely by Moonriddengirl
14:23 < Tony_Sidaway> Is it true that a lot of the Halo settings owe a lot to Iain M Banks' culture novels? I know nothing about Halo but quite a lot about Banks.
14:23  * GorillaWarfare hunts her down
14:23 < Qcoder02> Not sure
14:25 < Tony_Sidaway> Possibly my favourite game (one that I really enjoyed playing) was a children's game from EA in the early 1990s called Loom. You had to memorise spells, which were composed of musical phrases, in order to progress through the game. It used the same game engine as Monkey Island.

14:50 < Tony_Sidaway> mysterytrey: if somebody spots template vandalism, and they know to look in recent changes for template namespace, then most likely that will resolve the issue very quickly.
14:50 < Tony_Sidaway> SO perhaps it's just a matter of making that bit of knowledge available widely.
14:50 < SoapX> true
14:51 -!- Gfoley4 [~Gfoley4@wikipedia/Gfoley4] has joined #wikipedia-en
14:51 < mysterytrey> Actually, we need to have it set up to purge automatically after saving in template namespace.  Because if the template is purged hours after being vandalized, were kinda-screwed.
14:52 < Tony_Sidaway> Bots are very useful though. How about a web page where you report suspected template vandlism? The bot can investigate and give a list of likely sources of the problem.
14:52 < bobrayner_> maybe I've missed the start of this conversation... but after the last outburst I suggested that we consider fully protecting templates with more than 10000 transclusions or so.
14:52 < Isarra> I thought that was standard practice.
14:52 < bobrayner_> Of course there could be exceptions but most highly-transcluded templates have surprisingly little edit history after a burst of edits in the first week, so it's not as though protection would prevent huge volumes of vital positive changes ;-)
14:53 < Tony_Sidaway> bobrayner_: also a possible approach. ANd yes, it's a common solution.
14:53 < Fluffernutter> Isarra, this is wikipedia. Nothing can be standard practice without a significant cohort of people yelling violently about how it's ALL WRONG
14:53 < jorm> god.  my day is going to be all about "wikipediaredefined", isn't it?
14:53 < Tony_Sidaway> There are some templates that are _supposed_ to be changed a lot, but they are mostly in project space and are actively curated.
14:54 < Isarra> >.<
14:54 < Fluffernutter> jorm: but it's so pretty! so full of misunderstanding in spots, too, but so pretty, and some really good ideas!
14:54 < mysterytrey> Isarra: What did you think is standard practice?
14:54 < jorm> what good ideas?
14:54 < Isarra> Protecting widely used templates.
14:54 < SigmaWP> jorm: Make Template space semi'd
14:54 < jorm> i was talking to fluffernutter.
14:55 < jorm> and Template: being semi-protected seems like a no-brainer to me.

14:56  * Fluffernutter would murder a baby to get colored syntax
14:56 < mysterytrey> ...
14:56 < mysterytrey> overkill
14:56 < Tony_Sidaway> Wikipedia as an institution is, in my experience, surprisingly good at hitting optimal solutions. I once went through a campaign of challenging long term semiprotections. I don't regret doing that, it's part of being a Wikipedian, but it was surprising how many of the semis turned out to be justified by subsequent events.
14:56 < jorm> there's so many problems with their main page design.  they take the most important part of it - language selection - and bury it.
14:56 < mysterytrey> Let's get rid of the main page.
14:56 < Fluffernutter> jorm: the language selection is right in the drop-down!

14:57 < Fluffernutter> http://www.wikipediaredefined.com/img/15.png <--that, right?
14:57 < jorm> anyways. it's typical of firms like this in that they don't really do research about the product.
14:57 < Tony_Sidaway> Fluffernutter: coloured syntax coding is my pet hate. It makes pages illegible to me.
14:57 < jorm> yeah.  that'.
14:58 < Finkling> Tony_Sidaway: You suck
14:58 < Finkling> Do you program stuff?
14:58 < jorm> so, what about that color band says "this changes the language" ?
14:58 < Isarra> What Finkling said.
14:58 < Tony_Sidaway> Finkling: yes, for the past forty years I've programmed stuff.
14:58 -!- bobrayner [4e93208e@wikipedia/bobrayner] has joined #wikipedia-en

(the color band, while pretty, is totally opaque and is something a design studio would come up with before someone realized that no one would think to hover over the colors)
14:58 < Finkling> Tony_Sidaway: If you program stuff how do you hate syntax highlighting
14:59 < jorm> you can't hover on tablets.

14:59 < Tony_Sidaway> Finkling: I try to read the page and fail.
14:59 < Tony_Sidaway> I can't work out what the words or even the individual letters say.
14:59 < Fluffernutter> jorm: but i really do think the main landing page is cluttered and outdated and could do with a shine-up. Then again, i can't remember the last time I went to that page, so it's not like its clutter is any skin off my nose
15:00 < jorm> designing for touch interfaces is pretty much the paramount thing i've got the design team thinking like.
15:00 < SoapX> ok
15:00 < jorm> we're wanting to redo that page but we're waiting on the universal language selector to be finished.
15:00 < Isarra> Whoever designed this wikipediaredefined site clearly never mastered relative sizing.
15:00 < SoapX> http://www.wikipediaredefined.com/ is the new main page?
15:00 < Isarra> Or spacing.
15:01 < Isarra> Or good font selection.
15:01 < jorm> i also can't understand why they decided to throw away EVERYTHING that is good about our branding.
15:01 < Isarra> Or the use of colour.
15:01 < Fluffernutter> jorm: i was disproportionalte annoyed with them when i realized that they had no idea that "history" was an important concept to the way wikis work, and it doesn't mean anything like they think it means
15:01 < jorm> which is the whole "W" glyph, and the wordmark.

15:01 < Tony_Sidaway> Perhaps if somebody wants to do syntax highlighting correctly, they can look at the algol 60 report for some ideas. There is no colour in that document but it does a splendid job of exploring the possibilities of typographic highlighting.
15:01 < jorm> yes.  the history thing is where i tossed them completely in the bin.
15:01 < SoapX> it doesnt seem lik e they have anything going
15:02 < jorm> we have severe limitations when it comes to typography in our designs.
15:02 < SoapX> well to be fair most people probably dont ever read the histories of articles
15:02 < SoapX> users and editors are two different groups of people
15:02 < Fluffernutter> SoapX: there's something to be said for smoothing things out, de-cluttering, etc. There's very little to be said for their involved bits - the new "functions", etc
15:02 < jorm> mostly in that we have to design for *everyone*, so we can't just tell dyslexics to sit and spin.

15:03 < SoapX> its just a list of ideas
15:03 < Fluffernutter> mmhm
15:03 < Fluffernutter> they're hoping to get critical mass via email, i guess
15:03 < SoapX> i guess it wouldnt be technologically feasible to make a demo

15:04 < Tony_Sidaway> I've never really investigated why colour highlighting is so sucky for me. Possibly the implementation is too patchy in contrast (many colours are too close together in my visual palette for me to gain good contrast).
15:04 < SoapX> they probably think that Wikipedia looks this way because we have bad web designers
15:04 < jorm> color-blindness is a big thing for me to think about.
15:04 < jorm> design firms don't expect us to call them up.
15:05 < Finkling> SoapX: That "add article" button is going to be a nightmare
15:05 < jorm> they do things like this to pad out their portfolios.
15:05 < jorm> we get 3 or 4 things like this a year.
15:05 < jorm> okay. hold on a second.
15:05 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: the good news is that there are some algorithms that do a pretty good job of simulating colour blindness. You can look at your website as 10% of the male population sees it.
15:05 < SoapX> they mispelled "wikiquotes"
15:05 < jorm> I think I can say, unequivacably, as a representative of the Foundation, that wikipediaredefined is NOT going to be the future.
15:05 < jorm> It just isn't.
15:05 < Fluffernutter> heh
15:05 < SoapX> cool
15:05  * Isarra hugs jorm.
15:06 < Finkling> Syntax highlighting yay
15:06 < Fluffernutter> yay syntax highlighting. jorm, any chance we coudl get that? Just that?
15:06 < jorm> there are some interesting ideas with regards to how they curate photos (they don't really touch on it much) and some of their data maps are neat, but even that stuff will have to wait for wikidata to happen.
15:06 < jorm> i think it already exists in some extensions.
15:06 < Fluffernutter> ooh, really?
15:06  * Fluffernutter must go look
15:06  * foks "rebranded" Wikipedia for schoolwork once.
15:06 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: well they can take the content and present it however they like. :)
15:06 < Finkling> We should enable them on enwp

15:08 < Finkling> SoapX: It's too bulky

15:15 < jorm> we want to get contributions into mobile asap, but it's very difficult.

15:16 < jorm> now. that SAID.
15:16 < jorm> if we can get the mobile "skin" into core (which will serve as the starting point for athena), we'll get that running on tablets. which then increases the pressure to just have the current editor there.

15:17 < foks> I'm not the target of the VE.

15:17 < jorm> the visual editor has a working prototype, but it's a long way from baked.

15:18 < Tony_Sidaway> Use of abbreviations is tempting but seldom useful.
15:18 < jorm> depending on how bored I get in hawaii, i might build a skin, too.
15:18 < Isarra> VE will never be able to support everything that can be done with plain wikitext, though. What do you intend to do about that, limit what all experienced users can do for the sake of simplicity?
15:18 < foks> The rest of the features, don't get me wrong, look awesome.

15:22 < jorm> "Seven edits to [[Barack Obama]] since your last visit" and then click to open them, and then view individual diffs, etc.
15:22 < Fluffernutter> (is it unusual of me that the first thing I do when I sign up for a new site is see what's available in Preferences?)
15:22 < Tony_Sidaway> James_F: the great and blessed grace of textual formats is that you can easily implement them with macros. The secondary grace is that you can get at them with sensible software techniques that are well understood. None of this is true of the awfulness that is presentation-based editing.

15:28 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: I'm sure you appreciate how much freedom such a grammar would give to so many projects. Being able to understand the wikitext is very difficult for external apps.
15:28 < The_Blade> And the other two to zap a couple Dolovis sockpuppets who created a ton of disruptive redirects.
15:28 < jorm> okay. i'm told that you don't need to be autoconfirmed on ee-prototype to use the curation toolbar now.
15:28 < James_F> Tony_Sidaway: See what the Parsoid project are doing - https://mediawiki.org/wiki/Parsoid

15:29 < jorm> yeah.  james_f is your goto guy for questions about that.
15:29 < foks> What is "a grammar"?
15:29 < Isarra> But I think that was a the server is a pile of fail problem more than anything else.
15:29 < jorm> a formal language that obeys rules, in this case.
15:29 < jorm> wikitext doesn't have one.
15:29 < Tony_Sidaway> James_F: but hey, MI5 is holding out for TeX? Who knew?
15:29 < James_F> foks: A formal, computer-readable definition of wikitext in such a way that it can be parsed consistently by multiple implementations. Right now, it's theoretical.
15:29 < jorm> the best example are templates that open and close tables.
15:30  * foks whines at the jargon
15:30 < Qcoder02> Hi James_F
15:30 < jorm> {{table_open}} {{table_row }} {{table_row}} {{table_close}}
15:30 < jorm> that's a nightmare for machines to parse.
15:30 < Qcoder02> James_F: What's your FO spidey sense saying about Syria?

15:31 < Isarra> Having studied CS, I beg to differ.
15:31 < foks> Qcoder02, bringing up Syria in a conversation about Wikipedia redesigns?
15:31 < foks> that's brave
15:31 < Qcoder02> I only noticed James_F had shown up :)

15:31 < James_F> Isarra: Oh, sure, but I meant CS not IT.
15:32 < Qcoder02> and James_F seems to be a semi-expert on Foreign matters
15:32 < Isarra> James_F: It was called CS.
15:32 < James_F> Isarra: If you've not done Compiler Design, you've not done CS, you've just been lied to by your educational institution.
15:32 < Isarra> The fact that the instructors wanted to talk about cats more than computers, on the other hand...
15:32 < Tony_Sidaway> It's got too many obstreporous neighbours to go quietly.
15:32 < James_F> Isarra: Same thing with CPU design.
15:32 < James_F> Anyway.
15:32 < Qcoder02> I did Computing, and I did some theroetical stuff
15:32 < James_F> Back to jorm and design.

15:36 < lexein> In re conversation a while ago about template vandalism - I'd be in favor of an RfC and guideline to always apply full protection to all templates in use at more than, say, 100 articles.  Fluffernutter? RD?
15:36 < Qcoder02> was so I could setup some old hardwrae to do BOINC

15:37 < Qcoder02> And how many old NG are now copyright free?
15:38 < Qcoder02> Wikisource could do with having old NG's :)
15:38 < lexein> Isarra I'm also thinking of the risk of actually passing on mallware - full protection against all edits without permission seems like it would protect against mailware. Unless there's something I don't understand...
15:38 < Qcoder02> Tony_Sidawat: Can they boot to a point where they can run console based C code?
15:38 < Tony_Sidaway> Sorry what is NG? I'm not only colourblind but also hopeless at guessing what random bits of initials mean.

15:39 < BarkingFish> mallware = malicious software that automatically reroutes your internet connection to your local mall's website
15:39 < Qcoder02> NG= National Geographic
15:39 < Isarra> You can't use js in templates.
15:39 < Tony_Sidaway> Qcoder02: tell me about your hardware. Can you boot a UNIX kernel of some kind on it?
15:39 < Shearonink> whoever this is that keeps on adding Lincoln was conscious after being shot is a tool.
15:40 < Tony_Sidaway> Qcoder02: thanks. Duh!
15:40 < Isarra> All pages which do support js are protected already.
15:40 < Shearonink> over and over and over again,
15:40 < Qcoder02> tony_Sidaway: It's old machine from around 2000 ..  The only thing that preventing me from using a standrad Linux install is a bust CD Drive
15:40 < Tony_Sidaway> Qcoder02: dunno how I managed to forget the National Geographic thing, sorry.
15:40 < Qcoder02> and I don't need a full  Distro for doing what is essentialy math

15:41 < lexein> Isarra - ok, then there was something I didn't understand. Ok, then auto-full-protection of templates anyways. I wouldn't mind having to ask perm to update a template from /sandbox to live.
15:41 < Tony_Sidaway> Qcoder02: but what is the hardware? Is it x86 or something else? And if else, what?

15:42 < lexein> Isarra - understood - protection simply to limit vandalism.
15:42 < Isarra> Templates are wikitext same as anything they're used in.
15:42 < Qcoder02> Or I could find a cheap CD drive on Ebay ;)
15:42 < Isarra> And protection also limits the openness of the project.

15:49 < lexein> Isarra -Sure, read it, but  templates are foundational, and merit protection for the reputation of the project. Also, protection is merely a bureaucratic process step, not a true impediment to openness.  Just one more step to the process.

16:09 < BarkingFish> Facebook is in court, supporting a deputy sherriff who was fired from his job, because he "liked" the facebook page of his boss's campaign rival to become the next sherriff of Hampton, VA.
16:09 < GorillaWarfare> Peter-C: Hahaha oh god
16:09 < GorillaWarfare> So cruel
16:09 < BarkingFish> A previous court turned down an appeal against the dismissal, claiming that clicking the like button did not "amount to protected speech under the 1st Amendment".
16:10 < Dragonfly6-7> could he have argued that it was an accident?
16:10 < BarkingFish> Facebook disagrees with this - they say that "if the person had gone onto the street and shouted "I like Jim Adams for the next Sherriff of Hampton", that would have been protected speech."
16:10  * lexein taking off my thinking aloud megaphone and going outside.
16:10 < BarkingFish> Clicking the like button generates the same statement on the page, and thus should be classified as protected speech :)

16:13 < BarkingFish> If it's a message meant for the list to read, then the replies go back to the list. If you want to email them privately, you should use the email address you see in the client next to their name in the From portion

16:22 < Tony_Sidaway> Thing is, many people probably assume that computers can easily grab a hunk of wikitext and just, you know process it, because it's obvious what it all means, right? Well no. It's designed for use by humans primarily and the syntax is rather loose. So in effect the mediawiki parser is the only definitive arbiter of what is and what is not a correct interpretation of wikitext.
16:23 < Tony_Sidaway> And that's a bit like using a magic 8-ball to decide how a project will proceed.

16:42 < jorm> we're stuck with php as long as there are external developers working on mediawiki.
16:42 < mysterytrey> Tony_Sidaway: Did you already have Apache and php?
16:43 < jorm> we could probably stop what we're doing and spend the next 6 months reimplementing mediawiki/wikipedia in another language and have a better thing for it, but that would crush people who use it for 3rd party systems.  all existing extensions would die.  etc.

16:45 < mysterytrey> Did you do set up apache and php right there?

17:12 < BarkingFish> If that is flail...
17:12  * Fluffernutter suggests that SigmaWP not tell the ops how to op
17:12 < SigmaWP> Ö
17:12 <@Fluffernutter> BarkingFish, flail is just our usual pet troll
17:12 < IShadowed> SigmaWP likes to tell everyone how to do everything, Flueeh
17:12 < SoapX> i really doubt that's actually Majorly

17:12  * haggis suggests that Fluffernutter ops haggis
17:13 < haggis> that my friends, is how wikipedia will self-destruct.

17:13 < Gladamas_> ?
17:13 <@Fluffernutter> by opping you?

17:18 < Tony_Sidaway> mysterytrey: in case you were wondering I just downloaded the tar file and, as suggested by the INSTALL file, downloaded the wiki in place (renaming the install directory under htdocs as wiki instead of mediawiki-1.19.1 or whatever).

17:18 < BarkingFish> Damn. Nick change while typing :P
17:18 < Tony_Sidaway> Then I just edited a line in my httpd.conf to make it recognise php files, and now I'm up and running.
17:19 < mysterytrey> Seriously, just a line?
17:19 < SigmaWP> mysterytrey: .htaccess is your friend
17:19 < SigmaWP> and so is http.conf

17:21 < Tony_Sidaway> mysterytrey: I happen to be using OpenBSD's version of Apache but basically I installed PHP 2.something, downloaded the wiki, edited httpd.conf to say PHP files aren't food, and now in my browers I'm looking at a wiki complaining that it needs me to tell it some basic configuration stuff.
17:21 < BarkingFish> and Samwb123 is also registered
17:21 < mysterytrey> Lucky you.
17:22 < Tony_Sidaway> php-5.2.17p12 is the PHP version.
17:22 < Gladamas> How has the vandalism level increased in the last 2 years?
17:22 < Gladamas> or decreased?
17:22 < Tony_Sidaway> mysterytrey: read the INSTALL file. It's all in there.
17:23 < mysterytrey> Install of mediawiki, php, or apache?
17:23 < mysterytrey> Because apache usually lacks in explaining on Windows stuff.
17:24 < Tony_Sidaway> AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
17:24 < Tony_Sidaway> That's the Apache config line I added to get it to stop treating php as food.

17:25 < Gladamas> ya, they wer just starting pending changes when I left
17:25 < Tony_Sidaway> mysterytrey: Apache is built in in OpenBSD. I only had to install a version of PHP, tell Apache to take PHP seriously, and open the tar file of mediawiki into htdocs.
17:25 < mysterytrey> I also had to do LoadModule php5_module "C:/Windows/php/5_2_17/php5apache2_2.dll"  , which once I finally got the syntax good, the operation is still failing
17:25 < SoapX> he he
17:25 < Gladamas> man, 1.5 years later its still being added
17:25 < SoapX> thats how little change there's been

17:26 < Tony_Sidaway> Oh and I had to create a softlink to the relevant module for PHP into the apache modules directory.
17:26 < BarkingFish> The upshot of pending changes is simple, Gladamas - people can edit the page, but if you don't want to see their changes until they're reviewed, you can set it so you don't have to.  You can pick to view either the sighted or unsighted version, Gladamas
17:26 < Gladamas> Did anyone figure out what happened a few years ago with Puffin?

17:32 < mysterytrey> To a good free virtual machine.
17:32 < Gladamas> about 1/6 cost in electricity

17:41 < Gladamas> Shaded: For about 6 months
17:41 < Shaded> Not to mention how long you spent learning about it
17:41 < Gladamas> Shirik: Correct
17:41 < mysterytrey> I'm not seeing tools from browser menu.
17:41 < Gladamas> about 2 days
17:41 < Tony_Sidaway> So people want to use it as money but in fact it's easy to crack so people just sit with their work computers running all night and they wake up next day and they've "mined" 30 pence or something.
17:41 < Shirik> no
17:41 < Shirik> it's not cracking
17:41 < Gladamas> no its not easy to crack
17:41 < Shirik> it's solving a problem
17:41 < Gladamas> the blockchain ftw
17:41 < Shirik> it is intended that mining is possible
17:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Ah.
17:42 < Shirik> so basically every transaction needs to be verified by someone
17:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Oh I remember now. I think I read about it.
17:42 < Tony_Sidaway> SO it's fun.
17:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Then how is it money?
17:42 < Shirik> the miners' job is to solve a difficult problem to lock that in
17:42 < SigmaWP> mysterytrey: ctrl+shift+i
17:42 < SigmaWP> mysterytrey: then click the 'console' tab
17:42 < Shirik> in return, they get compensated a transaction fee for some transactions, and then the "block reward"
17:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Does the miner get to keep the money?
17:42 < Shirik> currently it's 50 BTC, but it will be lessened soon
17:42 < Gladamas> yes
17:43 < Shaded> Tony_Sidaway: Instead of being government backed, it's usability backed. It's a LOT simpler to transfer money internationally with Bitcoin
17:43 < Shirik> not the money in the transaction
17:43 < Shaded> That's where the value comes from
17:43 < Shirik> they keep the block reward and transaction fee
17:43 < Tony_Sidaway> So why aren't we just mining all the time?
17:43 < Gladamas> its decentralized money
17:43 < mysterytrey> Gotcha know.
17:43 < Gladamas> Tony_Sidaway: Startup costs
17:43 < Shirik> because it is not easy
17:43 < Shaded> In anycase it's an infant project.
17:43 < Tony_Sidaway> Sounds like loony tunes to me.
17:43 < SigmaWP> mysterytrey: it might be ctrl+alt+i
17:43 < Shaded> No reason to promote it yet :c
17:43 < SigmaWP> oh it worked?
17:43 < mysterytrey> Yup.
17:44 < SigmaWP> good
17:44 < SigmaWP> now enter this: alert(window.location.href);
17:44 < SigmaWP> did something happen?
17:44 < Shirik> Tony_Sidaway: Look at it this way. In the USA, the government gets to decide when to print money
17:44 < Tony_Sidaway> Might as well give all the money to people who are good at Left4Dead2 (my daughter would be a millionnaire).
17:44 < Shirik> In the BTC world, there will only ever be 21 million BTC. Ever.
17:44 -!- Nascar1996 is now known as N1996|away

17:44 < SigmaWP> Shirik: Nature gives the useful stuff in abundance
17:45 < Tony_Sidaway> Shirik: actually I like the idea that the government limits the money supply. Here the supply is being set by some rather dodgy mathematical assumptions.
17:45 < SoapX> ahhh we started a debate about bitcoin
17:45 < Shirik> limits? ha!
17:45 < mysterytrey> Yeah.  I now see a javacript window with an ok and the url.
17:45 < SigmaWP> good
17:45 < Shirik> they just print money whenever they feel like it

17:46 < TeeTylerToe> btc hasn't been very stable
17:46 < Shirik> Euro hasn't been very stable.
17:46 < TeeTylerToe> euro's been pretty stable
17:46 < Tony_Sidaway> So we're talking about a system that rewards clever people with access to large amounts of hardware downtime.

17:47 < Gladamas> BTC will be stable when more people adopt it.
17:47 < Shirik> Tony_Sidaway: No, again, mining is NOT to make money
17:47 < Gladamas> BTW its $11/BTC right now
17:47 < mysterytrey> Can't paste into window.  Won't let me.
17:47 < Shirik> It is to manage transactions
17:47 < SigmaWP> Oh
17:47 < SigmaWP> Then you have to type manually :P
17:47 < Shirik> Eventually mining will have a block reward of 0 BTC
17:47 < Tony_Sidaway> Shirik: oh I thought somebody agreed that I could keep the money I mined. Make your mind up!
17:47 < Shirik> ok
17:47 < Shirik> currently there is a block reward, yes. You get to keep it, yes. But that is not the purpose of mining.
17:47 < TeeTylerToe> there won't be anything to mine at the end
17:48 < TeeTylerToe> iirc
17:48 < Shirik> The purpose is to sustain the network
17:48 < Tony_Sidaway> So I'm not mining money?
17:48 < Tony_Sidaway> But I get a "reward".
17:48 < TeeTylerToe> you are.
17:48 < Shirik> currently, yes. Because we need to get the 21 million BTC into the economy somehow.
17:48 < Tony_Sidaway> What is the reward in exchange for, if I have nothing of value.
17:48 < SigmaWP> mysterytrey: When you're done setting up ubuntu and stuff, follow the directions at http://helpdeskgeek.com/linux-tips/install-virtualbox-guest-additions-in-ubuntu/
17:48 < Shirik> for solving the problem of getting transactions into the block chain
17:48 < SigmaWP> This will make your virtualbox installation run better
17:48 < TeeTylerToe> Once the problem is 100% solved all the money will be allocated by whoever mined each individual block
17:48 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Tony_Sidaway you have the power of the heart
17:48 < mysterytrey> Okay.
17:49 < Shirik> Ok so let's say I want to send you 1 BTC
17:49 < Shirik> I broadcast that to the network
17:49 < SigmaWP> mysterytrey: When you install the guest additions (see previosu link) you follow the directions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP
17:49 < Tony_Sidaway> It's not that difficult a problem. Want a currency to get into circulation? Just give it away to people.
17:49 < SigmaWP> Then you can run apache
17:49 < SigmaWP> :D
17:49 < Shirik> why should anyone trust that?

17:50 < SigmaWP> Tony_Sidaway: Capitalism sucks btw
17:50 < Shirik> so let's say I send 1 BTC to person A, and 1 BTC to person B, and use the same 1 BTC to pay both. Obviously only one can be valid.

17:50 < SoapX> Bitcoin is very well thought out
17:50 < Shirik> When it's in a block, that transaction is verified
17:50 < Tony_Sidaway> So was the Euro.
17:50 < Shirik> It is impossible for both of those transactions to get into a block
17:50 < Shirik> effectively one of those transactions will get discarded
17:51 < Shirik> the miner's job is to verify transactions and create a permanent record of it
17:51 < mysterytrey> I can now see pictures though.
17:51 < Tony_Sidaway> mysterytrey: you got it working now? Yay!
17:51 < Gladamas> Tony_Sidaway: The main idea behind Bitcoin is that it is free from government control
17:51 < Shirik> here's an example

17:51 < mysterytrey> I got pictures working now.
17:51 < Shirik> Some miner found that block and got rewarded 50 BTC for verifying these 89 transactions
17:51 < Gladamas> Shirik: Wow, you know your stuff!
17:51 < Tony_Sidaway> Gladamas: yep. You say that like it's a _good_ thing.

18:22 < Pharos> make sure to include an art review if you get find one!

19:03 < BarkingFish> but I didn't realize it was so tight down as to stipulating how long you had to wait between eating things.

19:06 < SoapX> the goat milk thing was a common ritual in Middle Eastern pagan cultures, I think

19:07 < SoapX> I wasnt aware that it had expanded to keeping all dairy and meat separate during cooking, though
19:07 < BarkingFish> It was also done to soak the strong game flavor of goat out of the meat - soaking in milk is a common way to desalt preserved meats and to take out strong flavors

21:04 < ChrisGualtieri> Oh the skinny dipping article... barking up that tree again?
21:05 < TeeTylerToe> ?  When censoring images of child nudity was brought up in the channel I mentioned that there was this other picture that was up for a while then taken down in '09 (I didn't know at the time it had been taken down).  Then the conversation moved on, then someone just now asked about a deletion log, and I posted the link
21:05 < iizyrt> question.
21:06 < ChrisGualtieri> Though to be perfectly fair, there is justifiable reason for the sub-section to have such a image, medically, and concerning the age HAS to be of a certain matter its another thing
21:06 < iizyrt> I don't think the images are allowed on http://enwp.org/Rorsach_test

21:12 < TeeTylerToe> unlike the meyers briggs, apparently the rorsach test is both reliable and verifiable

21:16 < ChrisGualtieri> Yes, but is it a 'secret' no
21:16 < ChrisGualtieri> Trade secrets should be barred from Wikipedia as per legal matters
21:17 < ChrisGualtieri> Though public knowledge such as the test, the cards and the 'results' are not under such protection
21:18 < TeeTylerToe> The Canadian Psychological Association takes the position that, "Publishing the questions and answers to any psychological test compromises its usefulness" and calls for "keeping psychological tests out of the public domain."
21:18 < ChrisGualtieri> They are lampooned in a great many shows, medical or otherwise, to think that any random person hasn't heard of the test or never seen any reference or card itself is just statistically impossible.
21:18 < ChrisGualtieri> Its already in the public domain is the problem, its been that way for decades.

21:20 < ChrisGualtieri> Maybe 10-20% already know more then enough to ruin it, another 20% might be able to draw out the idea in the situation when asked or showed said cards
21:21 < ChrisGualtieri> A majority might be completely unfamiliar, but to say that the images are secret and should thus be removed from Wikipedia for moral or medicial concerns are laughable

21:24 < ChrisGualtieri> Again, this is entirely different from popular, main stream attention consistantly introducing an otherwise unknowing population the specifics and type of test.

21:28 < ChrisGualtieri> IQ tests are a load of pseudoscience junk as well
21:28 < ChrisGualtieri> SATs change every year so while you can study the previous tests and do appreciably better as a result, your 'medical' matter is effectively null unless you score a perfect on the SAT
21:29 < ChrisGualtieri> The arguement that the Rorschach test is secret or somehow 'special' and should have its images removed or its well-known data is just laughable to me
21:30 < TeeTylerToe> There need to be psychological tests that have copious available research data that are secret
21:31 < TeeTylerToe> and there aren't a lot of psychological tests out there that are reliable and verifiable

22:50 < Headbomb> i probably edited it at some point
22:50 < Peter-C> So much coi.
22:50 < Headbomb> Earwig: probably ya
22:50 < Earwig> have you made more contributions to books than anyone else combined?

22:51 < SigmaWP> How do I install pip for python 2 while simulatneously having it for python 3
22:51 < Headbomb> Discographer should be close behind me however
22:51 < Peter-C> Question: how did we write [[Wikipedia]] without having a COI?
22:51 < Headbomb> one of my favourite books is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book:Toilet_Paper
22:51 < Headbomb> perfect book for the toilet
22:51 < Earwig> SigmaWP: name one pip2 and another pip3
22:52 < SigmaWP> Earwig: I tried that, but then it failed to create process
22:52 < Earwig> Headbomb: you have 6,291; Discographer has 3,223
22:52 < Earwig> SigmaWP: sorry :(
22:52 < Earwig> ask #python
22:52 < SigmaWP> NOOOO
22:52 < Headbomb> Earwig: yeah doesn't really surprise me, I cleaned up the hell out of the book namespace like two years ago
22:53 < Headbomb> made like 500 BPRODS
22:53 < Earwig> gee, really?
22:53 < Earwig> I thought you implemented the book namespace!
22:53 < Headbomb> amongst other things yes :p
22:54 < Headbomb> I didn't do the technical side, but i did clean stuff up when books were moved from the Wikipedia namespace to the book namespace
22:54 < Apheori> Are mushrooms good for houseplants?
22:54 < Apheori> Because I have a potted fern that is just full of them.
22:54 < Headbomb> lots of syntax cleanup too
22:54 < Headbomb> and i probably created ~100 books or so
22:55 < Headbomb> or maybe it's 250
22:55 < Shirik> the more I mess with wikipedia, the more I find words that wikipedians like
22:55 < Headbomb> i don't really keep count
22:55 < Headbomb> like i have too many edits, edit counter just break
22:57 < Headbomb> in general books on bands are super easy to make
22:57 < Headbomb> books on countries are the worse
22:57 < SigmaWP> #python scares me
22:57 < Headbomb> you can even use scripts to convert band navboxes to books
22:58 < Headbomb> if the navbox is there, it takes like 30 seconds to make the book, and maybe 5 minutes to cleanup with AWB

23:07 < Brooke> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Packaging_Tool
23:07 < Apheori> You have to go locate something, manually download it from a sketchy website, and then install it whilst ignoring a bunch of popup errors.

23:09 < Shirik> fuck apt
23:09 < Shirik> portage
23:09 < Apheori> Portage is nice.
23:09 < Apheori> But complicated.
23:10 < Shirik> it also works
23:10 < SigmaWP> Gentoo noobs :P
23:10 < Apheori> Doesn't apt?
23:10 < Shirik> apt does exactly what you tell it to do
23:10 < Apheori> Granted I've used portage more than I have apt, but... eh.
23:10 < Apheori> Personally I prefer pacman.
23:10 < Shirik> unfortunately it is very good at being told to install things that are incompatible or missing
23:10 < Shirik> and then you only find out at runtime
23:10 < Apheori> O_o
23:11 < Shirik> the beauty of portage is if you can compile it, you can run it
23:11 < Apheori> Isn't apt for idiot-friendy distros?
23:11 < Shirik> sure
23:11 < Shirik> but the moment you try to do something relatively complex, that's what happens
23:11 < SigmaWP> What distribution are you using, Apheori ?
23:11 < Apheori> I've found that even if portage won't compile it things'll still run. >.>
23:11 < Apheori> On which computer?
23:11 < SigmaWP> The one you're on
23:11 < SigmaWP> Now
23:12 < Shirik> well yeah, if it doesn't compile, it doesn't get installed :)

23:12 < Shirik> sure, but portage makes it easy

23:15 < Shirik> but most importanttly
23:15 < Shirik> I can restrict emacs from being installed
