phf: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-07#1907277 << it works fine without the javascript, i use it regularly in lynx (and occasional exotic browsers like netsurf), but i suspect it will fail in a browser, that both fails to display SVG and then fails to display a link map
a111: Logged on 2019-04-07 00:36 asciilifeform: ^ bug report to phf ^
OriansJ: I would like to thank everyone here; for helping me to realize the importance of good documentation.
OriansJ: phf: Tor-browser paranoid mode for reference
phf: OriansJ: good luck with that
OriansJ: phf: the cost of trying to interact with those that don't share one's values; for the sake of hopefully learning something of value or finding a fruitful cooperation.
phf: OriansJ: i don't understand what your comment is in response to, would you mind elaborating
OriansJ: phf: The choice of browser as per your previous comment
phf: oh, why not put your explorations on a separate machine, and have one machine that's in actual working order? unless you've made a conscious choice not to support svg in your stack, your stack appears to be broken
OriansJ: phf: It is on a seperate machine; The svg subset that isn't turing complete is enabled and working.
phf: OriansJ: so why not browse btcbase patches from your regular machine?
OriansJ: phf: I have no web browser on my regular machine nor any desire to add one.
OriansJ: now I am willing to build from source tools (after an audit) that will work with v; so that I can interact with the patches directly but as I have not finished an audit nor trust anyone who has previously audited the code; I am left with the bad option of setting up a burn box to view the patches.
phf: oh you just don't support html in general (presumably you still http with something like wget), i think your position would've been a lot stronger if you just said so, rather then something something tor browser. i'm vaguely curious what "non-turing complete svg subset" is, but that's a stone that will have to be turned some other time
OriansJ: phf: well few people would understand that position; so I tend to express concepts in forms for general consumption. Even though it will result in loss of precision; as few people are technical enough to care about the details lost.
OriansJ: phf: short version SVG that only supports lines and text but not SVG Animation or any of the other fun extras.
phf: OriansJ: so i've thought about it, expressing concepts in forms for general consumption is a bad coping mechanism from a life time of being the smartest person in the room (assuming that it's not a ruse or self-delusion and you _are_ actually capable of clear thinking). problem is that it makes you lazy and rots the brain, and then when you're in the room of equals or superiors you suddenly discover that you're not practiced at
phf: expressing yourself precisely and communicating clearly. another problem is that you yourself start thinking in shortcuts. and to what end? like take your svg comment, what's it supposed to accomplish? "oh, how interesting". anyway, please don't do it here.
OriansJ: phf: I have always felt precise and clear communication can only occur when both parties are open to the expression to incomplete thoughts with the goal of synchronize understandings. Otherwise the communication style is forced into a form of data dumps with long load times and a general ineffectiveness of cooperation between individuals; particularly when the delta between individuals is large.

deedbot: OriansJ voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: OriansJ: you may find it interesting that a number of noobs wrote own vtron, rather than bothering to audit the old; the former is generally easier than the latter
asciilifeform: phf: hrm i missed the http://btcbase.org/log/2019-04-07#1907295 ln. on init. read. patients with this symptom have exceedingly poor prognosis (witness e.g. Framedragger , succumbed to torcancer year+ after init. remission..) but it aint like the triage queue is full , thought worth try.
