mats: its a lot less work, no grounds to clean up, and i don't need to whiten my teeth regularly

gregory5: nonetheless, with working with Neo Latin, the avoidance of cognates is not always possible.
gregory5: the authors themselves are often thinking in temrs of cognates.

verisimilitude: Why whiten one's teeth?
gregory5: even in recent papal encyclicals.
verisimilitude: It's silly.
mats: if you don't care about caffeine i recommend trying it, allegro makes a decaf that i like

verisimilitude: That exact name matching is omnipresent for programming languages is a sign of English dominance, perhaps.

thimbronion: Can't really release what I've got right now because it requires a db migration, which I have yet to write.
jonsykkel: i see, alternatively i could bake tmp. blatta hack that fixes incompatibilities. theres couple more things that prevents smooth comms (version = 0xfe, and selfchain thing)
jonsykkel: (selfchain problem should be hackabl without changing db struct by just ensuring that created_at is monotonic by force)
