[00:36:39] <Bytram> .
[00:36:58] <Bytram> I don't know about its veracity, but just came upon this story: https://metro.co.uk

[00:50:28] <Bytram> moving to 2h21m story spacing for the weekend.
[00:51:08] <chromas> Exact spacing per story?
[00:51:39] * chromas usually rounds to the nearst magic number
[00:52:12] <Bytram> I've got a script that computes it for me on my PC and copies it into my clipboard so I can just paste it into the field
[00:52:28] <Bytram> an odd number makes it harder to notice repetition
[00:52:38] <chromas> Visual Basic, right?
[00:52:46] <Bytram> awk, mostly
[00:53:36] <chromas> .net
[00:53:43] <Bytram> it downloads the story list, uses an offset to find out which story's date/time stamp to start from, adds $arg minutes to that, and outputs a properly formatted result
[00:55:05] <chromas> rehash needs a neural net trained on the times so it can calculate spacing based on the weekday, holidays and stuff

[21:30:46] <upstart> <chromas> The page loads in-browser but for some reason they detected the bot as a bot
[21:31:44] <chromas> I guess the bot'll have to start loading javascript and solving captchas and stuff
[21:32:04] <Bytram> or... maybe change the user agent?
[21:32:24] <Bytram> or... redirect output from, say, lynx?
[21:32:57] <chromas> Yeah it needs per-site user agent strings. Some will let you past their paywall if it says googlebot or whatever
[21:33:04] <chromas> but then some will block if they detect it
[21:34:14] <Bytram> pick one, and then if there is another, retry with the next one in the list?
