mircea_popescu: diana_coman, traditionally setting it to 0 is how you unset it.
mircea_popescu: i suppose, retrospectively, this is implementation of folly, there's no possible usecase for ACTUALLY ever unsetting a rating.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: yes, but not sure I see the point of "unset"; it's 0
diana_coman: exactly.
diana_coman: tbh it sounds a bit like discovering that 0 "exists", lol.
mircea_popescu: this is so ; but for the sake of sanity im not gonna spec significant changes in the middle of implementing a differen tspec.
mircea_popescu: it does at that.
diana_coman: aite.
mircea_popescu: we'll get to this later, i say.
mircea_popescu: it's philosophically fraught, because as per the spec a rating of 0 should convey that the rater deems he can answer NO questions about the ratee. in which case... why is it a rating.
mircea_popescu: of course, this could readily also bear the alternative interepretation of "there is nothing the rater WISHES TO SAY".

diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1937779 - I think this is quite exactly what 0 rating means, yes.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-25 07:01:56 mircea_popescu: of course, this could readily also bear the alternative interepretation of "there is nothing the rater WISHES TO SAY".
mircea_popescu: the problem with this is that people wish to say different things in different contexts.
mircea_popescu: the converse is folly, "oh, girl doesn't show her cunt". of course she does. just, maybe not to you.
diana_coman: hm; rather: 0 = there is history of interaction but there is nothing to say of the person currently (dead @ the morgue, precisely); onth no rating means no history whatsoever.
diana_coman: so yes, nothing the rater can/wishes to say of the current "person"; still, they can/wish to say something of the past-identity if one asks
mircea_popescu: incidentally asciilifeform scores on his choice of epithet. amir-al-bahr used to be "commander of the fleet", but the dwellers in the lower part of the kingdom of two sicilies (a byzantine remnant) thought it's rather something else.

mircea_popescu: this is a problem innit.
mircea_popescu: not even just for bvt, also say nicoleci
mircea_popescu: i suppose the only workable solution here is indeed to admit http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-22#1937525 was actually ill-considered. yes 9 specifically might mean lordship, but that's not === selfvoice.

mircea_popescu: wtf happened here
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: I think this issue with self-voice vs lordship comes from #trilema being both republican halls (ie lords discussion) and your own training halls (hence nicoleci's problem to self-voice if only-9 can do it);

asciilifeform: asciilifeform noticed ~2m after
asciilifeform: Sep 25 15:56:32 * trinque (~undata@unaffiliated/undata) has joined #trilema << marks end of outage.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Is there any clock drift on the machine that logged that?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: nope, this is from a box asciilifeform physically sat on, gets reclocked regularly
asciilifeform: outage was ~4min long. asciilifeform did not even lose his shells. (tho was long enuff for fleanode)
asciilifeform: i.e. defo not a mains current outage.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, BingoBoingo fwiw smg servers did not reset so certainly not overall mains outage
BingoBoingo: Definitely no mains outage happened
asciilifeform: diana_coman: aha, dulap likewise not reset
asciilifeform: the likely thing is that someone somewhere physically moved a plug.
asciilifeform: ( when asciilifeform was a sysop, never took 4 whole min to move a live cable. but whoknows, orcs )
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Will take a look and send a note.
asciilifeform: ty BingoBoingo
asciilifeform: fwiw it's possible that the 'hm, i'ma unplug, then go smoke, and then plug in' took place upstream of piz.
mircea_popescu: o look, linux being reclaimed already

snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-25 15:27:04 diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1937909 - that's precisely the sort of tasks he got because yes, needs to do more reading and to do *better* reading; by the looks of it the US doesn't teach people how to read, somehow, it's rather unbelievable.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-25 15:12:25 mircea_popescu: could use more reading. eg : "How can, for example a compiler be in any way even remotely political?" >> http://trilema.com/2015/the-downtrodden-are-downtrodden-for-a-reason-step-on-their-faces/ specifically discusses it.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the way i read it, he starts with rhetorical 'but how could be political' then proceeds to show entirely edible concrete example
asciilifeform: i.e. demonstrates that understands answer is 'yes, noshit'
asciilifeform: ( or did mircea_popescu divide by 0 an' crash before got to that part..? )
asciilifeform brb,teatime
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, on reread yes, i see it.
mircea_popescu: did not crash, but i do parse.
diana_coman: on the other hand, since he's been apparently slaving away in web-shitstack & python for ages, he'll have a stab at the multi network bridging thing; we'll see if he cuts or breaks his teeth on it
ossabot: Logged on 2019-09-19 05:39:18 mircea_popescu: speaking of which, an' considering we're apparently stuck with a buncha chrises over here : any of your resident knights capable of registering a chan on ~any other network~ and writing the bridge code on top of extant bot already ?
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1937949 << funny, i had been describing this sorta issue for a while ?
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-25 16:46:54 asciilifeform: pretty interesting outage, too, net pipe gone for 3min or so (boxes still up, so not mains failure)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: yours was specific to dulap ( where phuctor db was being walked just as mircea_popescu happened to load ) , recall that other boxen were unaffected
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this 1 was a piz-wide outage.
asciilifeform: i recall 1 previous similar, ~30sec long, last yr
mircea_popescu: still could benefit from more reading. "hoi polloi" for instance is a syntagma with great english history.
asciilifeform: picture is consistent with 'monkey unplugged then went to smoke', i.e. 100% packet loss for ~4m.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, hm, perhaps so.

mircea_popescu: pretty cool.
asciilifeform: oh hey neato
asciilifeform: diana_coman: plz consider to put said bash+awk in 'contrib' dir of vtree
asciilifeform: lobbes: i relit mine via curl "http://logs.ossasepia.com/log-raw/trilema?istart=1937934&iend=1937941" > foo; ./eat_dump.py foo trilema 3
asciilifeform: ( granted this only worx if there's no conflicting tail, i.e. you get to the console just in time. failing that, (presently) gotta drop the conflicting tail in db before snarfing )
asciilifeform: was thinking re how oughta do auto-syncs. one possible method, is for bot to take command via pm, e.g. !q sync 1000 http://logs.ossasepia.com ; would then walk last N (here, 1000) ln, and offer 'identical', 'diverges prior', or 'diverges at I', I is index, and offer alignment, operator (set in config who) can then confirm or reject
asciilifeform: if choose 'confirm' then eats all changes req'd to get to 'identical' .
asciilifeform: another method would be that periodically tests against loggers given in config, and pm's operator if and only if finds divergence.
lobbes: in general auto-sync would be nifty. but just like the manual method, would need to wait until "dead time" to prevent new lines appearing during the sync wouldn't it?
lobbes: or perhaps I'm missing something
asciilifeform: lobbes: not if it knows how to drop the broken tail
asciilifeform: lobbes: 'tail' here being whatever lines come after the gap, and thereby have erroneous index #s
lobbes: ah okay. that makes sense
asciilifeform: currently this is a gnarly manually-cranked process, as ./eat_dump.py deliberately is made so ~not~ to import any line that conflicts with existing index
asciilifeform: ( could of course add a cmdline param to it, to enable overwrite )
asciilifeform: thing is -- imho it is poor practice to blindly pick another logger and overwrite massive chunk of own db with it w/out mechanically testing that they diverge strictly in favour of the other
asciilifeform: otherwise you could easily end up importing the other logger's hole vs yours
asciilifeform: so far all the gaps have been small enuff to visually examine, but this will not necessarily remain the case
asciilifeform: mechanical diffing, meanwhile, is tricky because ordering is already known to differ ( almost guaranteed to differ when bots are speaking, one's own bot's output ~always~ enters log before that of other bots ; but also can differ elsewhere on acct of fleanode weather )
lobbes: hmm this makes me rethink my current design re: mp-wp bot as well. As it stands, there is no way to "re-sync" since it just spits the lines into a blog post.
asciilifeform: hence why imho resync ~must~ be a semi-automatic, rather than automatic, process.
asciilifeform: lobbes: it's 1 of the reasons why asciilifeform did not like mircea_popescu's original tip re how to bake logger ('just pipe it into a wp') ; but mircea_popescu did specifically ask for 1 that does exactly that, for own www, i presume he knows what he's doing
lobbes: yeah, I'll guess I'll let the man speak to if he wants sync capabilities in the mp-wp-tronic branch
asciilifeform: lobbes: as i understand, with that type of logger you'd have to regen all of the pages that include or follow the gap, in order to close a filled gap.
asciilifeform: ( and to do it very quickly, else someone could easily speak during the regen, and leave you unsynced again )
lobbes: indeed. Would just be a buncha "update" statements that fill in the proper lines. As it currently is designed, I have it spitting lines into a flat file first, and that file is used to update the "current day's log" post as new lines are seen
lobbes: in theory, could index the lines in that file, so as to preserve ordering, as well as keep more than one file (currently, this one file is overwritten on each new day)
lobbes: but idk, perhaps this is more complex than MP wants it to be
asciilifeform: lobbes: see what mircea_popescu says when wakes up.
asciilifeform: imho a logger that can't resync at all, aint much of a logger. but at the same time i dun see why a generate-statics logger couldn't be made to resync. simply a bit moar complicated.
asciilifeform: it'd be a 1st class bitch to resync ~from~, however. but fortunately we have other types of loggers that know how to emit lines x..y for given x/y
mircea_popescu: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1938022 << emerging sync language from the fact we use bots, rather than not. mindblowing.

mircea_popescu: loggers as extant suffer from being built manalone style, from scratch, as such the only possible in-page selection is an ad-hoc (but very functional, as it happens) by-line.
mircea_popescu: whereas on trilema you have the whole power of the mp-wp selectylanguage at your disposals, you don't need the line numbers because you can just select w/e actually interests you
mircea_popescu: this whole pile is however a massive lesson in evolution-vs-design thematics & tropes ; that "the function creates the organ" is musky throughout ; the blogger's retrospect ("had i not done x it'd never have occured to me to do y") omnipresent ; and so following.
mircea_popescu: consider both the positive (no convergence language'd ever have emerged out of "oh, phf did excellent job with logger") and the negative (without "we have these loggers, how do we sync them" nobody'd have ever understood why mp-wp is a better display mechanism than "this shit i just brewed").
mircea_popescu: the problem with people isn't a problem with people, but with infinities : realia is somewhat infinite ; idealia is MUCH more infinite than that (whole thing neatly mirrors the cardinality of power sets, actually).
mircea_popescu: for this reason any imanentization (ie, mapping of concepts into reality) will revolve around a "paradigm" / wilful blindness of some kind. "how could i not think of that" is always lulzy -- if you thought of everything your head would explode. and that's a literalism : if you somehow fit all states of its own emptiness into a glass it'd go boom.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1938053 << ideally would pipe it into sumthing like a table layout, so can select w/out repeatedly including speaker indicator per line e.g. 'mircea_popescu:'

asciilifeform: would also make merging cut-up lines 9000x easier

asciilifeform: in related grrs, asciilifeform recently attempted backport of mircea_popescu's selector knob to own wp, but broke teeth cuz it dun know how to cross paragraphs, and i have '9000' multi-para selections, esp. in ffa series where coad
asciilifeform: so atm still using old, barbaric selector.

asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1938061 << prolly oughta add to this tho : fleanode not infrequently reorders lines , so might end up with some shuffled if doing this

asciilifeform: the other thing, the adhoc traditional line select is human-friendly, very fast to grab a line url, whereas mircea_popescu-style selector less so, gotta find unique start/end text, when citing from trilema it usually takes asciilifeform 2-3 shots to nail down the correct snip

asciilifeform: incidentally, if yer going full throttle w/ selectables , the Right Thing imho would be to take it all the way and make items like this actually display (if reasonably compact.. config knob?) the linked text. a la old man ted nelson's 'transclusions' concept .

asciilifeform: another thought : the display of literal machine-readable links verbatim in log, is quite wasteful, and if yer doing a whole-page transform, quite avoidable. why not make the cited text the displayed part of the clickable link (and orig. url -- the machine part when same is clicked) .
asciilifeform goes to construct example...
asciilifeform: this becomes : that .
asciilifeform: ^ in this example, as we're using line-based selector, cites whole line. but if used fine-grained selector, could cite the selection.
asciilifeform: result is imho not only moar compact ( why throw the ' http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1938055 ' to the screen ? ) but moar readable .
snsabot: Logged on 2019-09-25 21:41:56 mircea_popescu: consider both the positive (no convergence language'd ever have emerged out of "oh, phf did excellent job with logger") and the negative (without "we have these loggers, how do we sync them" nobody'd have ever understood why mp-wp is a better display mechanism than "this shit i just brewed").
asciilifeform: for folx who give a shit 'via what bot? was the citation' -- can put that in 'hovertext' .
asciilifeform: if finally throwing out the ancient kakobreklic format for logger display, wai not go full throttle.
asciilifeform: would have to make the wwwtron avoid displaying bot echoes tho ( theoretically one'd still want bot echoes , to see wtf is going on when reading via live irc session rather than www )
asciilifeform: ... rapidly this becomes a headache, re historic logs where 1e6 times people cited specifically bot echoes
asciilifeform: this, rather like the 'url clocks' problem, demands a 'smart' transmutation of old l0gz, somehow, in order to work 100% correctly.
lobbes: aha, I was just about to mention the bot echos
asciilifeform: ftr we still haven't a pill for the url clocks problem.
asciilifeform: ( it is preventing import of era1 )
asciilifeform: imho all of this is a++ illustration of how even in very small, conceptually (vs. e.g. ye olde c/gcc/linux orchestra) system, 'legacy' retardation gets firmly baked in and very difficult to entirely remove.
asciilifeform: ancient problem, sorta how the j00z ended up with a talmud in 4 langs
asciilifeform: (couldn't agree on translation of n-1th ea. time they got hard-reset)

asciilifeform: ericbot: i'ma restate compactly. atm we index lines. by a monotonic # . the timestamps are stored as unix epochal times. the urls, however, demand a e.g. 2014-07-16 , and always did, and these both now and then were parsed via what the particular box thought local time was. resulting in headache, because machine timekeeping was , and remains, shite.
asciilifeform: this problem, incidentally, if not cured, will persist in a hypothetical mircea_popescu-style pregenned-pages logger.
asciilifeform: because currently no 2 logotrons actually agree on what reich.time it is.
asciilifeform: nor is there likely ever gonna be any such agreement. use of reich time gotta be made 100% decorative, or to go away entirely.
asciilifeform: even to actually use the unix epochal time, is dodgy. cuz, again, no 2 tmsr boxes are ever likely to come to an accurate agreement re what unix.epochtime it is 'now'.
asciilifeform: so , say you have a logger of whatever type (either traditional or mircea_popescuine) and 2 of these dun agree re when a day ended -- bang, you get links that dun lead to the desired text. cuz they try to use the fucking date.
asciilifeform: the historic epochtimestamps are incidentally all over the place, try setting a scratch box logger to sort ~by time~ some time and weep. ( from when phf , for instance, imported his znc, evidently wasn't 100% synced to the primary logger ; and elsewhere )
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-25#1937945 for instance diverge by 15m. and that's today. month from nao, prolly will diverge by 30, or worse
