[02:17:55] <Bytram> here's a more impacting 'oops':

[02:17:57] <NetCraft> ^ 03Rage-quit: Coder unpublished 17 lines of JavaScript and “broke the Internet” | Ars Technica
[02:19:21] <crutchy> bah that's old news Bytram :p
[02:19:35] <Bytram> mebee to you, iz newz to me
[02:19:47] <crutchy> you been stuck in work land?
[02:22:35] <crutchy> i think jquery will 'break the internet' one day
[02:22:42] <crutchy> too many websites link to it too
[02:23:34] <Bytram> IF you depend on code for your stuff to work, be absolutely certain that you have a LOCAL COPY and refer to THAT one in your code.
[02:24:22] <crutchy> jquery encourages linking to their latest though, which is begging for grief
[02:25:10] <Bytram> oh, so I have a sight that references *their* copy, and they change *their* copy, and *my* code could/would break.
[02:25:12] <Bytram> ??
[02:25:13] <Bytram> Dumb.
[02:25:32] <Bytram> copy it local, give it a version number, and refer to THAT copy.
[02:25:33] <crutchy> yup. pretty much
[02:25:59] <cmn32480> ~gday knuckleheads
[02:26:01] * exec covertly pours a sac of adhesive medical strips for knuckleheads
[02:26:06] <crutchy> web devs *should* make a local copy
[02:26:11] <Bytram> besides, why in the world would I want to tell, say, jquery every time one of my users loads a page, and give them the IP address, too?
[02:26:24] <crutchy> beats me
[02:26:30] <crutchy> the web is borken
[02:26:33] <cmn32480> I can explain this in 4 letters

[02:26:38] <cmn32480> Z
[02:26:40] <cmn32480> Y
[02:26:45] <crutchy> yup
[02:27:09] <cmn32480> mostly them PHP guys
[02:27:15] <chromas> by having everyone refer to the same copy, the browser cache hides the fact that it's a giant lib
[02:27:49] <crutchy> even css is linked nowadays
[02:27:50] <Bytram> actually, there's some hocus pocus by ThePowersThatBe[Greedy] that encourage sites to refer to, say, google's copy so that it is more likely to already be in their cache
[02:28:35] <Bytram> sure, it also cuts down on the amount of bandwidth that your own site must support, but is it worth the savings?
[02:29:24] <crutchy> i think caching is the main argument of proponents of shared libs

[02:34:44] <SirFinkus> is it possible, and I know this is a long shot
[02:34:55] <SirFinkus> is it possible, and I know this is a horrifying concept
[02:35:03] <SirFinkus> is it possible that the SN community is...
[02:35:05] <SirFinkus> ...mature?
[02:35:45] <Bytram> nah, given the typical behaviors of basement dwellers, instead of 'mature', I'd suggest 'ripe'

[02:51:35] <cmn32480> yes
[02:51:44] <crutchy> kinda like the aussie outback
[02:51:45] <cmn32480> I ahve a buddy who lost 2 years of his life there

[02:53:58] <crutchy> i wouldn't have driven to SA in the old car

[02:56:15] <crutchy> bit of a hike yeah
[02:56:15] <cmn32480> 14-15 hours
[02:56:24] <crutchy> google says about 18 hrs
[02:56:34] <crutchy> probably will need a stop over in adelaide

[02:59:35] <crutchy> dunno how to describe. feels very peaceful
[03:00:09] <crutchy> cmn32480, yeah i don't mind a bit of mountain hiking. there's lots of that near me though so i just take that for granted :p
[03:00:17] <cmn32480> ahhhh
[03:00:31] <cmn32480> we have hills here... need to go that thousand miles to get real mountains
[03:01:06] <crutchy> i dunno if the mountains near me are that great compared to there, but i can see snow on them in winter
[03:01:25] <crutchy> part of the great dividing range that runs along the east coast of aus
[03:01:32] <cmn32480> stuff here tos out at about 1.6km high
[03:01:40] <cmn32480> on the east coast
[03:02:22] <cmn32480> get into Colorado and the Rockies, you get inot stuff that is 4.5km tall or better
[03:02:27] <crutchy> there's a mountain that's about 1.9km high, but probably most are a bit lower
[03:02:56] <cmn32480> the picture above is on one about 3.8km tall
[03:02:56] <crutchy> mt feathertop is a nice walk
[03:03:00] <crutchy> ah
[03:03:04] <crutchy> yeah that's a mountain :p
[03:03:15] <cmn32480> i pulled the pic off the web, but I have actually hiked that trail
[03:03:59] <crutchy> i don't think there's anything near that high in all of australia
[03:04:27] <crutchy> mt kosciuszko is 2.9 km as the highest
[03:04:39] <crutchy> derp. i mean 2.2

The last time this happened, in 1998, the summit ended with a distinctly utopian ambition: the total eradication of all drugs from the entire world. "A drug-free world—we can do it!" the summit declared. Eighteen years later, narcotics are still as popular as ever, with the UN estimating that the global number of illicit drug users will increase 2
[04:02:44] <takyon> 5 percent by 2050."
[04:03:25] <chromas> It was a noble cause. Get rid of supply and the demand goes with it
[04:03:27] <Deucalion> By removing 25% of drugs from being illicit?

[04:04:44] <chromas> Better than unmodified maggots?
[04:04:49] <takyon> In the meantime, a handful of countries have experimented with alternative approaches. Portugal famously decriminalized all drugs in 2001, while Switzerland has pioneered the policy of heroin prescription, and Washington and Colorado have legalized the sale of marijuana for recreational purposes. So far, all of those schemes have, by and large, proved successful in minimizing harm and boosting local economies.

[04:07:12] <SirFinkus> the trend is a vertical line

[04:07:20] <chromas> From 0 to 1

[14:35:03] <Subsentient> ... that'd be a good demoralizer, but I am a utilitarian to my core, and do not believe this would save more innocents than it would destroy.
[14:35:29] <Runaway1956> Oh, fuck, man, you wanna have a serious talk on that subject?
[14:35:39] <AndyTheAbsurd> No
[14:35:50] <Runaway1956> Okay . . . I'll save it then.
[14:36:00] <AndyTheAbsurd> I've said all I'm going to say on that topic.
[14:36:24] <AndyTheAbsurd> You can feel free to rant away; just don't expect me to participate. (And I may not even pay attention.)
[14:36:25] <Subsentient> Runaway1956: I factor in probability and the 100% chance of death of many innocents from nuclear fallout cannot balance the possible chance of war with the middle east.

[20:08:09] <sea> NOOOOOO My phone screen has burn-in!!
[20:08:42] <Runaway1956> You shouldn't have bought a phone with a CRT display then.
[20:09:15] <sea> I came here to mention it because I was surprised it could suffer burn-in. It's an AMOLED display, and those can burn-in. I only learned that today.
[20:09:32] <sea> I thought it would make a nifty note for the site, because I figure other people might not notice it until it's too late, too
[20:09:40] <Runaway1956> Hmmmmm - I hadn't heard that before
[20:10:07] * Runaway1956 checks his ancient phone with CRT display
[20:13:28] <sea> Well, other phones that can have screen burn-in are the Nexus 6, pretty much any Samsung phone, and the Lumia 930
[20:14:37] <sea> amusingly, in this case there's a ghostly image of a cat on my screen, because I had the wallpaper set to a white cat, on a black background, and had the phone display set to no-blanking overnight. Now there's a permanent ghost cat.

[20:15:34] <Runaway1956> I can't vouch for it - hell, I didn't know that amoled could burn in just ten minutes ago
[20:15:47] <Runaway1956> But, they claim to fix or alleviate the problem
[20:16:22] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Erik Prince, Founder of Blackwater, Under Investigation by DoJ - http://sylnt.us - super-merc
[20:16:50] <sea> Yeah, I used a similar method. I got a screen dimming program and set the screen to be very, very dim. The cat only appears when the screen is bright.
[20:17:17] <sea> I didn't fiddle with the colors specifically under the region that's different, but then, I'd just get burn-in elsewhere eventually anyway
[20:17:30] <Runaway1956> It's not Schroedinger's cat, is it?
[20:18:08] <sea> Some of the time.
[20:18:15] <Runaway1956> Mrs. Schroedinger has been looking for that cat
[20:18:52] <sea> Ah. We had better tell her that it might be here, then.
[20:19:29] <sea> Oh god! My mother put pepper in the ketchup jar and I just scooped up some on a tortilla and ate it
[20:19:48] <sea> There's a reason I label the jars..
[20:20:51] <Runaway1956> You eat Tex-Mex?
[20:21:13] <sea> idk what that is
[20:21:18] <sea> I'm thinking of a way to retaliate.
[20:21:56] <Runaway1956> Tex-Mex is this weird blend of Texas and Mexican cooking, where everything has some kind of pepper ingredient.
[20:22:33] <Runaway1956> Real Mexicans can serve up genuine cooking absent of any peppers at all, but Tex-Mex is incapable of cooking without peppers.
[20:23:11] * Subsentient shoves a peeled jalapeno up Runaway1956 's urethra
[20:24:02] <sea> Hmm.. I exclusively eat potato, tomato, cucumber, garlic, toast, tortillas, grapes, and peas. No pepper, but I guess I just ate some and it wasn't that bad.

[20:25:29] <sea> mindcoin?
[20:25:42] <sea> Oh, wow, mindcoin exists
[20:26:07] <Runaway1956> Peppers - there are so many kinds of peppers, some are actually good tasting, others are so hot, no one can claim to actually "taste" them
[20:26:38] <Runaway1956> Jalabanero peppers have been known to raise blisters on your hands while preparing them for dinner
[20:27:14] <Runaway1956> Jalapenos, on the other hand, aren't really all that hot
[20:27:30] <Subsentient> No they aren't, and I fucking love them.\
[20:28:14] <Runaway1956> They're OK pickled - in limited quantities
[20:28:20] <sea> JalapenoCoin. The next hot thing!
[20:29:12] <Subsentient> GoatseCoin.
[20:29:58] * Runaway1956 misses simple stuff like pasetas, and lira, and Israeli pounds, and pence and shillings
[20:31:08] <Subsentient> Runaway1956: If I were emperor, I would seriously mint coins with goatse engraved on them.
[20:31:28] <Runaway1956> Oh yeah, Deustch marks and Krugerands
[20:31:51] <Subsentient> "mommy can I get a quarter for a soda?" "ok, but don't look at the quarter"
[20:32:15] <Subsentient> I'd even have the ring on the goatse guy's little ring finger gold plated
[20:32:16] <sea> Hmm. I watched the mindCoin infomercial thing and the end of it bothered me. "Bob left his job and became a full-time trader!"
[20:33:06] <sea> Sounds to me like the whole point is to become a parasite, and it's not even hidden anymore, it's in the infomercials!
[20:33:12] <Runaway1956> Yeah, well, there was a reason that Bobby sat in the back of the class, wearing that conical cap all the time.
[20:33:42] <sea> Runaway1956: Bob was secretly a Wizard.
[20:33:48] <sea> Runaway1956: OR an Elf.

[20:35:52] * Runaway1956 turns all the fans on high to muffle the moron with no muffler on his old farm truck
[20:37:10] <sea> Speaking of that. There's a racing track near my house, and I hate the sound. I have a load of cinder blocks, though. I'm only strong enough to lift one at a time but I can stack them into a parabolic wall over time, set up a boom box, and broadcast the Titanic song.
[20:37:33] <sea> Do you think it'll work? The goal is to get them to move the race track.
[20:41:51] <sea> A more direct approach is to use mirrors to shine sunlight directly at the cars.

[21:48:53] <sea> I don't think it's fair that their cars are so loud. Everybody else has to keep noise levels down or the police comes. Not the racetrack. Why can't they race electric cars?
