mircea_popescu: i expect it'll be patched into mpi. which she's going to also sign to genesis. sorta like how i signed mp-wp, and unlike how you didn't genesis it, or did you ?
a111: Logged on 2017-12-03 11:49 mircea_popescu: and speaking of http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-15#1739096 : it's my recollection that when i released mp-wp, the deal was somebody picks it up and genesises it. i dun recall right off who, was it you shinohai ? or ben_vulpes ?
mircea_popescu: but the good news is you can config your blogotron to just suck out pastes and put them in blockquotes itself. tho i've not had mp-wp do this

BingoBoingo: For webhosting though, one has to remember that hosting typically means MP-WP which can tax a database if the traffic is there
mircea_popescu: conceivably SOME of that came other than "because we published in today's mp-wp clone-wannabe"
a111: Logged on 2016-07-06 15:53 mircea_popescu: incidentally : someone writing a tex processor for serenity (ex mp-wp) themes that shinohai can then just import as a standard would be pretty epic.
shinohai: it would surely run netbsd and mp-wp w/out hiccup
a111: Logged on 2017-10-18 04:47 hanbot: asciilifeform yeah thewhet.net is X_X atm. i'm futzing around with nfs to see if i can finagle a mp-wp-cum-import with them.

shinohai: If you need copy of mp-wp PeterL I can accomodate
mircea_popescu: if the dood bangs out tmsr-db within the next coupla weeks, which fwis isn't exactly inconceivable, is anyone interesrted in making mp-wp switch from mysql/etc to it ?
mircea_popescu: sina go make a drop-in flatfile db replacement, so people can drop it in right now. there's a market, such as people who aren't happy mp-wp pulls in mysql.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: mp-wp is pretty neat
a111: Logged on 2017-06-12 04:19 ben_vulpes: sina: sensible thing to do is make a genesis of your shit, stand up an mp-wp and post it on your blog
scriba: Logged on 2017-06-22: [23:58:00] <TomServo> Also, if someone could share a copy of mp-wp, that'd be swell.
TomServo: Also, if someone could share a copy of mp-wp, that'd be swell.
mircea_popescu: it's called mp-wp
ben_vulpes: sina: sensible thing to do is make a genesis of your shit, stand up an mp-wp and post it on your blog
asciilifeform: because your mp-wp lives on conventional static ip box.
mircea_popescu: also, it sohuld be noted, i dun have same problem with... mp-wp
asciilifeform: http://asciilifeform.com << asciilifeform's mp-wp test install. comments dun work...
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform notice trilema doesn't suffer from same problem ; read mp-wp ; live happily ever after.
mircea_popescu: CompanionCube mp-wp for instance.
mircea_popescu: mod6 mp-wp makes thumbs automatically!
danielpbarron: biggest hurdle is getting my hands on a copy of mp-wp
Framedragger: (though i'm sure mp-wp is on the whole ~decent in terms of holes/security.)
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i see what you mean, but you can't really call it 'static' by any metric. in point of fact i'm surprised you're not grossed out over the fact that the whole thing is a large stinking pile of dynamic php. i guess the counterargument is that it *gets the job done*, very well, over many years. :) so there's that. but i'd like to ditch the 'wp' from 'mp-wp' one day. but maybe baby steps.
shinohai mysql is the reason shinohai ..... has procrastinated with mp-wp
mircea_popescu: Framedragger thinking about it, the ~only correct solution is for the mp-wp maintainer to remove mysql in favour of a flatfile "db" system. then it will be properly static, or as close as its job allows.
BingoBoingo: shinohai: Are you still playing with mp-wp?
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-03-05#1622341 << you could just use mp-wp neh ?☝︎
ben_vulpes: fwiw i thought long and hard about this and ultimately migrated to mp-wp.
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: for a few days now, i think he's waiting for me to cough a mp-wp up
mircea_popescu: i dunno. in truth the maintenance of mp-wp is a bit in the air right now ; but if you want to make a patch by all means.
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: you got considerably farther than i did, in re mp-wp
danielpbarron: oh, from who can I get a copy of mp-wp ? my blog box seems to have crapped out once and for all. figure it's a good excuse to migrate to something better
a111: Logged on 2017-01-14 22:14 ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: what's the mp-wp blessed method for a custom root page? i've tried writing a front-page.php (which mp-wp didn't eat, suggesting that front-page.php was a post 2.7 introduction? their documentation doesn't do time travel, so the archaeology is tough); and twiddling home.php (but i can't get home.php to behave conditionally depending on whether it's the site root)

asciilifeform: mp-wp supports footnotes ~in comments~ ?!
a111: Logged on 2017-01-09 15:06 mircea_popescu: and before anyone asks : the advantage of this is that this solution scales. ACTUALLY scales. specifically, if at any point in his own time and for any reason in ~his own domain~ taleb wants to get more control, he can. he actually can. you explain to him, when he asks, HOW to be more in control of his mp-wp install. in terms of configuring the php script, or in terms of configuring the apache server, or in terms of configuri

a111: Logged on 2017-01-09 09:23 Framedragger: (just complained to taleb about him using medium. this whole "scrape article right after it's published because the unicorn it's riding on may go really go down soon" is a bit stupid. on the small off chance that he replies with a request for a suggestion to be considered, i wonder if there's anything to actually be suggested. need to search for a bit (i'm certain he wouldn't fuck around with mp-wp unfortunately)..)

asciilifeform: to set up proper box, 'mp-wp', etc. ?
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: have you ever wrestled with mp-wp stripping '.' characters from uploaded filenames when there's more than one?
phf: it didn't but even mp-wp has a bunch of admin interface images. magnifying glass, scissors, that sort of stuff
mircea_popescu: yeah ; mp-wp had no themes did it.
mircea_popescu: i think he'd greatly benefit from mp-wp, but anyway
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: huh. i thought mp-wp woulda had that setting. my second comment on that first article went through unimpeded.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, if anyone wants to check how wordpress does latex formatting and roll a mp-wp plugin / v update for it that'd be grand. in typical faux open source style, they're remarkably unhelpful with it (see https://en.support.wordpress.com/latex/ )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it wouldn't need to alter it however. afaik mp-wp doesn't either ; handles redirects itself like a grown-up system ??
mircea_popescu: http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20160920/#143 << i have no idea ; mp-wp would handle it automatically (in the sense that i can at any time / for any reason change url, old one gets redir to new one ; and also can switch from ?p= to proper title url seamlessly). no idea however about alf-wp
phf: from now on i'm working on mp-wp, full time, a shell of a man. you can point newcomers at an old shambling figure, "that's phf. he's tending our flower bed"

scriba: Logged on 2016-09-15: [20:30:04] <ben_vulpes> http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-15#1542439 << so i've done my own digging and asked a few others to dig as well, and i can't figure out what "the code" i'm supposed to have is. grepping for 'footnote' turns up zilch in my copy of mp-wp. throw me a bone here?

ben_vulpes: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-10#1538902 << you'll probably find this as useful as any other rodent carcass left on your pillow, but over the last 2 months i've racked my own metal, migrated out of virtualization to the new box, ported my blog to mp-wp, and stood the obvious tmsr services up on the new box (blog, paster, node). it doesn't look like much from the outside, but paying down debt of necessity☝︎
mircea_popescu: hooly crap, /me just realises that mp-wp actually has
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: my mp-wp is leaking pingbacks
ben_vulpes: http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/0cdd986e-6ee0-4067-923c-5a4ca2f0c52b/?raw=true << if anyone on mp-wp wants 403s in their http webserver logs when login failures occur
mircea_popescu: Framedragger there's a mp-wp ancient script thing shinohai was massaging.
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, mp-wp did not exist in 1990s ; nor did lamp.
mircea_popescu: at least in mp-wp :p
mircea_popescu: one mp-wp to rule them all and in the darkness diddle them or how did that go.
shinohai: the mp-wp rss feed worked out of box for me
ben_vulpes: asciilifeform: oh pish and tosh. the only thing i threw out while banging on mp-wp was the comment time-sensitivity, and i even got around to fixing that.
asciilifeform: ;;later tell ben_vulpes http://btcbase.org/log/2016-08-14#1521104 << looks like you turned mp-wp into conventional rubbish wp?? congrats ?☝︎
asciilifeform: btw trinque is the 'mp-wp' you are using available somewhere ?
ben_vulpes: eeeeeentirely unrelatedly, mircea_popescu is there a way to set post slugs in mp-wp?
ben_vulpes: shinohai: did you ever get mp-wp running and fit for sharting around?
ben_vulpes: phf: did you ever release the original sources to which your mp-wp patches apply? i scanned a few days of logs and didn't see anything other than the wp-content and a few patches.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: can i get a re-link to mp-wp.tar.gz?
a111: Logged on 2016-08-01 07:59 ben_vulpes: the prefuckingcise reason i am not making the investment in mp-wp at this moment is because i am paying a debt on the virtualization tool choise.
ben_vulpes: the prefuckingcise reason i am not making the investment in mp-wp at this moment is because i am paying a debt on the virtualization tool choise.
ben_vulpes: anyways i have several mega housekeeping chores in between here and trying mp-wp for myself.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes try mp-wp for srs.
mircea_popescu: so i guess you can have a fat 8 lines of buttons in the mp-wp thing ; and i'll continue to type tags in directly.
asciilifeform: from my reading of the src, mp-wp does not materially differ from stock wp in this respect
mircea_popescu: not the way it works on mp-wp, not really.
mircea_popescu: wp (at least, mp-wp) will forever 304 the old requests to the new
mircea_popescu: incidentally : someone writing a tex processor for serenity (ex mp-wp) themes that shinohai can then just import as a standard would be pretty epic.
BingoBoingo: And no, qntra theme has not yet been tested with mp-wp. Runs own wp fork.
asciilifeform: and it run work with mp-wp
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ironically, if your original is from 2007, mp-wp should work with your theme out of the box.
mircea_popescu: (large part of why mp-wp is useful is exactly this : all knobs already set correctly, unroll and gtg.)
a111: Logged on 2016-07-04 02:07 mircea_popescu: phf there's two main points of the split between mp-wp and automattic-wp. one is that i shot the akismet idiocy in the head (mp-wp antispam system works way the fuck better, and doesn't you know, run arbitrary code from the automattic equivalent of disqus, shambling abominable horror of untold proportions).
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-07-04#1496653 << one major advantage of this, by the way, is that mp-wp comment count (references for eg in places like http://trilema.com/2016/why-is-that/#comment-117921 < ) is actually accurate, minus the 15k or so sample spam pieces there's >100k human comments on trilema ; akismet-based popular blogs, that on occasion reach six figures like trilema, also count every single spam piece they ever☝︎
