BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Thank you very much
mp_en_viaje: BingoBoingo, you about ?
mp_en_viaje: nm foundit meanwhile.

diana_coman: heavy reading.
mp_en_viaje: a ? trilema's supposed to be light reading, i must've done something wrong!
diana_coman: must be the lightness of nothing that weighs too much, yes.
mp_en_viaje: bah, and back to the "closed comments" bs i see, wtf. brb gotts fix this
mp_en_viaje: aite, article fixed & checked.
mp_en_viaje: as it turns out, mp-wp has a ... well, i dunno, i hesitate to call it a bug. it has the following issue : if the publishing of an article (which is itself handled as a http post) gets interrupted for whatever reason (such as the connection dying, the closing packet being waylaid, anything), the article will still be publioshed, partially, ie what made it there ; however because various settings (notably, whether comments etc) ar
mp_en_viaje: e open or not come AFTER the body of the article, and as the default is closed...welll... they'll thus be closed.
mp_en_viaje: and then there's ~little other than directly editing the db that the author can do to un-do this setting.
mp_en_viaje: so, if you ever end up publishing half an article because your connection died mid-publish for w/e reason, and as a result your article's comments are closed -- the one pill is to edit the db, set comment_status & ping_status to "open" again.
diana_coman: ugh; good to know at least but shouldn't the default status be open for comments?
mp_en_viaje: i have nfi where it's even set ; god knows the db itself defaults to open.
mp_en_viaje: will take some spelunking, but i suspect further unhappy interactions among the tower of shit leading to the result.
diana_coman: most likely, yes.
mp_en_viaje: off to breakfast, will bbl
mp_en_viaje: the heaviness of nothing notwithstanding, it is self-evident we'll have to carry some conversations in the coming days : with BingoBoingo re the future shape of qntra (which iirc was sorta-open but then put into what at the time was intended to be a brief abeyance) ;
ossabot: Logged on 2019-10-29 06:08:11 diana_coman: heavy reading.
mp_en_viaje: with diana_coman as to the future strategy of s.mg (which normally'd belong in eulora, i suppose, but honestly might as well happen here, not like there's any traffic jam or anything) ; and of course with diana_coman hanbot trinque BingoBoingo lobbes spyked bvt ave1 as to what exactly we still want and we can in fact support going forward.
mp_en_viaje: but i propose we carry those in some order later this week / next, post digestion. there's, after all, exactly no more rush nowadays.
mp_en_viaje: http://trilema.com/2019/antiqua-sanctorum-patrum-or-the-lordship-list-sixth-year/#comment-128248 << march, heh.
diana_coman: the list + timing makes sense to me; I'm still digesting but onth I'd say latest next week is better than letting it drag any longer; while there might be no rush, there is also no gain that I can see in waiting longer than that.
diana_coman: time packs a lot of punch those days; march indeed.
BingoBoingo: mp_en_viaje: Having seen the folks diana_coman is catching in her school house and the issues they have with tight writing, I am inclined to draft an offering for a journalism short course. Maybe I catch some of my own students, maybe I get some referrals from diana_coman and others looking to tighten up the prose of their catches.
BingoBoingo: My though with offering a short course is that it allows for a degree of screening and mutual auditioning before committing to take on an apprentice while other folks can refer their students with the specific aim of getting drilled into producing some journalistic reports.
mp_en_viaje: might be an idea
BingoBoingo becoming much more inclined towards paralegaling over datacenterism
mp_en_viaje: in any case xpollination's effectual, if nature's any gide
mp_en_viaje: how come ?
BingoBoingo: The sort of readinging and work required feels like it is more... inside my wheelhouse. Paralegaling can also be done in LATAM where if seem more effective than I'll be anywhere else in the world for at least the first 12-18 months.
mp_en_viaje: prolly pays less
BingoBoingo: I will explore both routes
BingoBoingo: But I do suspect the datacenter space is more thoroughly infected with cancer than the legal space.
BingoBoingo: Datacentering and paralegaling both seems like very live options at present
mp_en_viaje: i dunno how you'd judge the more thoroughly, but...
BingoBoingo: At this point its just the suspicion
BingoBoingo: It is one of these sort of suspicions http://bingology.net/2019/10/29/preliminary-inventory-of-items-once-hosted-by-pizarro-and-presently-in-my-care/#footnote_0_3068
BingoBoingo: My gut isn't a perfectly calibrated divination device, but 5 years of Qntra has helped calibrate it along certain lines
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: i expect to sign the final inventory today, after BingoBoingo cuts my seals and inspects the inside of the 'dulap's.
asciilifeform: mp_en_viaje: meanwhile ( per tradition of asciilifeform's homeworld ) here is my resignation. mp_en_viaje can unseal if he wishes, or wait until march or whatever fits his aesthetics.
diana_coman: BingoBoingo: as I previously said in #o, I'm all for xpollination with a qntra-writing course for sure.
BingoBoingo: diana_coman: Right, your expression of interest was when the thing went from an idea bouncing around in my headcase to a suspected good idea.
lobbes: mp_en_viaje: in mp-wp bot updates: I've got the search results piece (with the auto-delete-old-results functionality) complete.

Also, are you fine if they are static php files or is html (with teh embedded php) an absolute must?
mp_en_viaje: lobbes, nice!
mp_en_viaje: lol the peanut gallery on trilema.
