[00:36:47] <Fnord666> Hah! There is an API.
[00:36:59] <charon_> hiyo Fnord666
[00:38:19] <Fnord666> howdy charon_
[00:38:50] * Fnord666 wrings his hands like a mad scientist
[00:39:19] <charon_> uh oh
[00:39:43] <charon_> i fear i have created a monster
[00:41:07] <Bytram> yes, there is an API. I've messed around with it a bit, you could say. Posted about 900 comments on dev stories.
[00:41:10] <Bytram> automation++
[00:41:10] <Bender> karma - automation: 1
[00:41:24] <Bytram> time to do the dishes and take a short break -- biab
[01:09:43] <charon_> bbbbbbbytram
[01:26:02] <charon_> Bytram: when you get use the API to get a reskey, you have to wait 20s to use it, and can only use it once? is this correct?
[01:26:19] <Bytram> kinda
[01:26:40] <Bytram> are you trying to post a comment/ (there are two different kinds of reskeys exposed by the API)
[01:27:01] <charon_> a story submission, the way the bots do
[01:27:38] <Bytram> I don't know about that one... have not tried to submit a story with the API, only posted comments/replies
[01:27:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> 30s i think
[01:27:49] <Bytram> sounds right
[01:28:01] <charon_> but the one use part, is that right too?
[01:28:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> yup
[01:28:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> welcome to look at the code in MrPlow but it's written in Rust
[01:28:40] <charon_> does it expire?
[01:28:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, eventually
[01:28:54] <charon_> i know nothing about rust, but i can probably stumble through it
[01:29:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> not sure on the expiration
[01:29:25] <charon_> that shouldn't be an issue anyway, just curious
[01:29:46] <charon_> my intent is to get it and use it asap
[01:30:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh gods, you don't want to read MrPlow's submissions code. it's multi-threaded so he doesn't lock up for 30s every time someone submits something.
[01:31:15] <cmn32480> exec is PHP
[01:31:19] <cmn32480> also out on github
[01:32:07] <charon_> isn't php voodoo and chicken scratchings?
[01:32:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> starts here: https://github.com
[01:32:24] <cmn32480> charon_ - I don't think it is quite that simple
[01:32:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> the thread that actually does the submitting is up above and the function it calls is further down.
[01:32:36] <cmn32480> think a plate of cooked cold spaghetti
[01:32:59] <Fnord666> I would be interested in Mr. Plow's code
[01:33:19] <Fnord666> nograb

[01:35:05] <cmn32480> https://github.com
[01:35:09] <cmn32480> exec's submit code
[01:35:30] <cmn32480> aka VOODOO!
[01:35:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> exec is multi-process rather than multi-threaded so prolly easier to follow.
[01:36:10] <cmn32480> exec is as bad a spaghetti as bender
[01:36:28] <Fnord666> TMB - now that's a car wash I can get behind!
[01:36:32] <charon_> and for this we blame crutchy
[01:36:32] <cmn32480> short version - every function in exec calls a script
[01:36:38] <cmn32480> correct
[01:36:46] <cmn32480> that script starts a process
[01:37:17] <cmn32480> exec's meat and potatoes are in the scripts directory
[01:37:24] <cmn32480> good luck!
[01:37:49] * cmn32480 yawns
[01:37:49] * MrPlow flips a Skittle into cmn32480's gaping mouth
[01:38:01] * cmn32480 goes to practice his Chinese

[01:50:36] <charon_> uh... why would rust make variables by default unchangeable?
[01:50:44] <charon_> ~gnight Bytram
[01:50:45] * exec sexually tosses the last slice of NURBS to Bytram
[01:50:53] <Bytram> "Constants aren't; variables won't?"

[01:51:04] * exec figuratively terrorizes a basket of sleep with charon_
[01:51:21] * charon_ hands the basket of sleep over to Bytram
[01:51:37] * Bytram gratefully acknowledges the gift and gladly accepts
[01:51:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> charon, because many many things never change after their initial setting.

[01:52:01] <Bytram> #define ONE 1
[01:52:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> making them explicitly write-once keeps them from accidentally being overwritten somewhere else
[01:52:51] <charon_> i guess, but there's no const declaration?
[01:53:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh sure but how often do you need to change the value of something you just pulled in from a db for instance?
[01:53:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> 90% of my vars in MrPlow aren't mutable
[01:55:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> if they really, really need to be, you'll see me passing references to them as &mut foo instead of &foo

[02:08:04] <charon_> TheMightyBuzzard: i see now, didn't grok the &mut until you said that
