spyked: ^ comments, suggestions, tomatoes and eggs are more than welcome.
spyked: my next steps will be, in order: 1. add prefixed commands to trilemabot (and publish); 2. add (and publish) command and parsing for !!gettrust queries (required for rss bot access control); 3. rebase current rss bot on trilemabot and add access control; 4. bring rss bot in #trilema; 5. publish rss bot code
spyked: step 5 will probably need to be broken into multiple sub-steps, since I will have to also publish a rss parser first, then a rss bot design document, and only then the code.
spyked: aaaand rssbot code currently weighs circa 400LoC, so I'ma probably also have to break that into testable pieces. not sure yet.
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-04#1820598 <-- indeed it does, and precisely because of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-04#1820603 . I don't know how to design a proper comment mechanism, not necessarily because of spam (I believe mp-wp antispam works), but because I'm not convinced that everyone coming on the blog should be able to leave comments, and if they do, then what format (text-only?) etc.
a111: Logged on 2018-06-04 17:35 phf: i think someone else here had a lisp implementation, but that one lacked comments entirely
a111: Logged on 2018-06-04 17:36 mircea_popescu: i'm just saying, it's not ~just~ mp-wp that's an eyesore here. in truth it's our whole relationship to the www that's at issue.
spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-04#1820568 <-- I also suspect that that's much of the cost of "works". leaving comments aside, thetarpit blog scaffolding is a few kLoC of CL, but lacks *any* editor-side interface (an item such as e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2018-04-15#1799520 would have to be done the old-fashioned way, moving the files manually or through ssh and maybe script this somehow, but it would be a *separate* piece of
a111: Logged on 2018-06-04 17:26 mircea_popescu: phf, it also has the advantage that it works, and VERY well. which to my knowledge is not true of any other piece of web software (alf's complaints notwithstanding, phuctor emergent codebase may qualify)
a111: Logged on 2018-04-15 04:19 mircea_popescu: hanbot / everyone : speaking of patches for mp-wp, here's something i'd dearly love : a MASS uploader. so you don't have to upload files one by one in the webinterface.
spyked: scaffolding), a xml-rpc handling mechanism, and many many others that the wp user may find useful; it has no dedicated db, the db is the filesystem; no web-based editor, etc.
spyked: plus, I tried at some point to bring in server-side dynamic content ( http://thetarpit.org/posts/y03/05c-development-log-i.html ), but the cost of all those dependencies is still (from my pov too) big.
spyked: in other work: does anyone object to my taking the next available prefix in http://lobbesblog.com/static/tmsr_bot_directory.html for spykedbot? !S fits it quite well.
spyked: I'm reserving another bot for the rss functionality. but I want to use spykedbot to make a small trilemabot example for implementing prefixed commands. spoiler: I have some code that looks up definitions in asciilifeform's ro-en dictionary ( http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2211 ), it's the smallest application that I could find that also does something useful.

mircea_popescu: spyked, that was relievingly breif.
phf: resolves to 18.104.22.168 for me
mircea_popescu: now i see it.
phf: i like trinque's approach of publishing deeded hosts, requires vigilance on part of log reader, but at the end there's a canonical place we can fallback to, in case
mircea_popescu: yes. his intuition is correct, eventually will grow into gns.
mircea_popescu: spyked, the first portion is interesting imo. why shouldn't anyone be able to live comments ? something in the vein of "if every tree was carved any time anyone on the trail thought about some girl, we'd have toothpick forests" ?
mircea_popescu: commentary is the heart of the european intellectual tradition ; originally it seemed like such a step forward to have this commentary sorted by subject rather than, in the old style, by author. and the technology allowing it seemed genuinely revolutionary for this reason, exactly in the vein of plumbing.
mircea_popescu: these days...
mircea_popescu: "thetarpit blog scaffolding is a few kLoC of CL, but lacks *any* editor-side interface" << understand something : i publish more than anyone, and by anyone we don't mean solo operators, we mean whole fucking outfits. there's a reason for this. the fact that trilema is comfortable to me provides those last edges of extra productivity and intellectual leverage that convert exceptional performance into mindblowing performance. t
mircea_popescu: his is not a small matter, but in fact the only large matter.
mircea_popescu: in short, that's a ~HUMONGOUS~ cost, if the "mechanical support" alters the result from + to -.
mircea_popescu: there's coffee machines that make you not really want any coffee. this is not merely a bad coffee machine.
mircea_popescu: you wanna drive cars that make you love driving and wanting to drive, not jalopys that encourage you sitting on the couch. and the same for everything everywhere. the stories about kids ruined for school because couldn't see and no glasses aren't made up, this was the scourge of a generation. and on it goes.
mircea_popescu: spyked, !S it is.
phf: i think anti-comment is a recent (3-4 years) argument, started by a bunch of "high profile bloggers", who, after running into some heavy polemic, turned off the comments on their sites. the argument was then picked up by the various "minimalist" blogging systems (we can't be arsed to implement comments, but kottke said they are useless anyway)
asciilifeform: relatedly, mircea_popescu-was-right(tm)(r), asciilifeform's blog nao has a broken stump instead of working commentron, because google's captcha crapola finally gave up the ghost, and nao i gotta figure out how to port mircea_popescu's routine...
mircea_popescu: phf, it's recurrent, basically very much the http://trilema.com/2014/in-which-you-become-grain/ issue
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: dangling em in the footnotes
mircea_popescu: "high profile bloggers" figure status and performance should be divorceable. this happens about 2-3 times every decade, with a new crop of "high profile bloggers" who a) misjudge their status and b) figure they'll discover shit.
ben_vulpes: for when cherri met rae
mircea_popescu: ti's very much highschooler syndrome. "oh, i guess we're the seniors now" "why ?" "do you see any other seniors in the cafeteria ?" "well, not in the cafeteria you go to" "word."
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, not like i didn't WARN YOU!!11
mircea_popescu: ty ben_vulpes
mircea_popescu: btw, i hope that's adequate payment for all the j/p spam ?
ben_vulpes: suuure boss
phf: well, it's how many childhood games have the notion of a charm, a special word that gives you coveted status, without further strife. "base", "not it", "shotgun", etc. likewise the idea that once you're king, it's just wine and dancing girls for the rest of your life. the labeling game on which the whole house of cards is built.
mircea_popescu: myeah. but it's so mean, you know, "oh, if we turn off comments then nobody will be able to rise to the top anymore ha-HA!!! we figured out something fundamental here!"
mircea_popescu: it's this specific breakage, the web keeps exposing. there's apparently two ends to the pendulum : on one hand, the net routes around damage ; on the other hand, the more it does that, the more excited the damage gets about getting in the way.

mircea_popescu: hence imbecile nonsense a la "paywall garden". because no, steve jobs ain't no fucking genius, he came up with the exact same idiocy every group of idle 18yos came up with.
mircea_popescu: why the fuck would people who ~fundamentally disenjoy~ something nevertheless want to be "high profile" in it... this part is incomprehensible. really, talking to people is something you dislike doing and then you figure you wanna be a "high profile blogger" ? "yes mp, because it's all about shaping the landscape, not enjoying the landscape". right ? fucktard mcdullardson is going to ~improve~ upon how the world works.
mircea_popescu: and their improvements always are the same tired old farmwife bs.
mircea_popescu: and this is not something they ever notice. and so fucking on, bleah.
mircea_popescu: whatever, ima depress myself at this rate.
phf: well, it's the old age comes for us all, none of them want to be césar luciani, and very few prepared to knowingly don the armor one last time and die under the hail of arrows so to speak. (and i'm giving them a lot of credit here as far as how they lived to begin with)
mircea_popescu: this'd be the problem. yes in the old days there was the lich and all that discussion. but fucking mind you that koschei was A WARRIOR in his fucking youth.
mircea_popescu: not the guy in the drown, father, drown story.
