[00:02:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> it amuses me to be as un-pc as possible with branch names since github's all SJW'd up
[00:03:13] <paulej72> Buster McThunderstick
[00:05:52] <takyon> that's problematic
[00:05:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> Winky the milk spitting tunnel ferret
[00:07:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm. bout two hours ima do the update. i should write up a quick "we'll be down for a few minutes" post.
[00:08:07] <paulej72> Squirmin’ Herman the one-eyed German
[00:29:42] <takyon> maybe edit a changelog or brief list of changes into the meta post?
[00:53:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, they're in the linked december update post
[00:53:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> feel free if you like though.
[01:44:30] * Bytram wanders in and reads scrollback
[01:45:25] * Bytram reads meta story
[01:45:37] <Bytram> looks like restart will be in about 15 minutes
[01:45:48] * Bytram goes to kitchen to prepare some popcorn
[02:10:09] * Bytram actually goes to kitchen to prepare some dinner
[02:10:14] <Bytram> afk biab
[06:54:01] <chromas> You could switch to Bitbucket :)
[12:02:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, and not get to annoy the github twats? never!
[12:19:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> Upon further reflection this morning, I will not be fixing non-breaking bugs this AM. I will be booted into Win7 playing some much delayed vidya since I can now reboot again.
[14:19:09] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: enjoy!
[14:20:19] <Bytram> and many thanks for taking on the site update duties -- it's all too easy to take for granted that it will happen without thinking about what is involved in making it happen, especially when things have a habit of going sideways
[14:21:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, remind me to fix the template_tool script to not fuck things up if there's unicode in a template. not today though.
[14:21:53] * Bytram ponders for a moment... ooooooh... didn't think of THAT one! Will do.
[14:22:13] <Bytram> you'd think there was something like that which Bender or exec could do for ya, yanno?

[14:25:20] <Bytram> I was just about to set up a reminder in two days to remind me to remind you!

[14:25:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> !todo
[14:25:30] <Bender> todo for themightybuzzard: 1) utf8mb4 upgrade 2) filter comments by score in the api
[14:25:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> ha
[14:25:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> !todo fix template_tool
[14:25:39] <Bender> todo item 3 added
[14:25:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> !todo fix the api

[14:26:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> !todo collapse spam comments by default regardless of score
[14:26:05] <Bender> todo item 5 added
[14:26:27] <Bytram> btw, have you taken a look at how many NPC names are listed on https://sylnt.us
[14:26:28] <upstart> ^ 03#fite Scoreboard
[14:26:29] <exec> └─ 13#fite Scoreboard
[14:26:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> nope
[14:26:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> a bunch i assume
[14:27:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> renders damned fast for all that though
[14:27:14] <Bytram> atm I see 549 of them
[14:27:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> we should rewrite rehash in rust
[14:27:42] <Bytram> is that the "Royal" we?
[14:28:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> most likely
[14:28:23] <Bytram> actually, I'm not entirely against the idea, except for the fact that the code is battle-hardened against a buncha creative and persistent nerds
[14:28:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> use the same algorithms, just translated.
[14:28:56] <Bytram> and carry over all the existing misnaming conventions?
[14:29:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> ed zackery. gotta have tradition!
[14:29:18] <Bytram> I would advocate for refactoring the existing code base, and THEN porting it over
[14:29:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> and get rid of all its character?! nevar!
[14:30:04] <Bytram> well, only the UTF-8 characters ;)
[14:30:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> i could rewrite the API in rust though.
[14:30:37] <Bytram> yeah, the RTFM error messages are not terribly useful
[14:30:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> they are if they get you to RTFM
[14:31:10] <Bytram> also, there are a few places where sid has entirely different meanings / expected syntactic contents
[14:31:35] <Bytram> yeah, that would help if the fine manual did not have mistakes
[14:31:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> naw, i'm not writing production code in a language without a concept of "stable".
[14:31:40] <Bytram> :(
[14:31:58] <Bytram> stable? Isn't that where you keep the horses?
[14:32:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> right. but rust is run by mozilla and a bunch of other swj types whose only thoughts about horses in their entire life were "oooh! pretty!"
[14:33:32] <Bytram> and... such BIG eyes you have, oh my!
[14:33:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> anyway, i need some nicotine after chasing down a bug when i shoulda been playin vidya.
[14:34:02] <Bytram> so, IIUC, you've changed your mind about porting to rust?
[14:34:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, that was just me shitposting from the start.
[14:34:45] <Bytram> ahhh, nod nod
[14:35:01] <Bytram> btw, reminder: certs are due to expire in a week or two, IIRC
[14:35:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> nope, pj already renewed them.
[14:35:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> yesterday or the day before
[14:35:54] <Bytram> ahh, yep. looks like that was on 2018-01-17
[14:35:58] <Bytram> good good
[14:35:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> NICOTINE!!!!!11
