: asciilifeform, ty! bot's back on the line
: Buy order # 1060 has ENDED: No sale. Attn: BingoBoingo
: asciilifeform, this recent comments thing is immensely helpfull, now i can follow wtf
: mircea_popescu: normally i get ~0 comments for weeks on end on my www; then in 1 day half dozen, and remembered 'could actually keep track if had recent-comments...'
: hai asciilifeform :]
: just stopped in for a moment, shall bbl.
: ^ In Airstrip One continuing to dehumanize to maximize the number of human lives
: pretty lulzy shit. meanwhile dousing 12yos in gasoline pre-gangrape all halal still.
: Well, the gasoline's potential danger incentives submission on the part of the doused. The knife point's potential danger has contexts where it could promote resistance.
: i did some reading on pingbacks vs trackbacks and it looks like we could remove trackbacks without anyone noticing (mp-wp supports pingbacks and that seems to be what everyone is using)
: i'm not sure if that's what you meant though
: or is the idea to rip out all unused pieces in xmlrpc (blogger, metaweblog, movabletype, etc...) and rewrite the pingback support keeping the select mechanism rather than layering it in after the fact?
: keeping the select mechanism in mind*
: billymg, the removal part is easy, just delete * from comments where trackback
: every time a new article is posted, there's some subroutine that goes through all the links and sends the pingbacks. the idea is to hijack that so it re-does the entire db
: ah, so more of a one-time job/script?
: or, i guess i mean, could a migration script of sorts that's run once manually accomplish the same goal?
