jurov: haha qntra got censored?
BingoBoingo: jurov: Honestly actually reading it instead of turning it from .docx to something Qntra could eat, it was pretty shit. It's length was also incredibly dilutional relative to whatever value a small portion of the content may have had.
BingoBoingo: It was my mistake. A draft Qntra style guide is incoming soon to prevent this.
BingoBoingo: The formatting guidelines will be effective as soon as the link hits this channel, because I'm tired of buring more braincycles civilizing submission that deturding legal pdfs.

asciilifeform: 'In a thirty-four-page opinion, the Court of Federal Claims dismissed Walton’s complaint for lack of jurisdiction. The court held that the suit could not be maintained because the statutory provisions governing copyright infringement suits against the United States (28 U.S.C. § 1498(b), discussed in Part II infra), do not permit such suits by prisoners in Walton’s situation. The court further held that because Congress ha

adlai offers two test-cases for this "style guide" (lol)
adlai: an article explaining how much profit you can make from running dashparkcoin 'masternodes', and how your investment yields value from providing services to people using it to blablabla
adlai: vs, an article tracking the rise and fall of masternode-fidelty-bond-sized chunks of darkcoin, correlated with its price movements, maybe even making falsifiable claims about the future.
adlai: works for bitshares, banxwanx, diethyl ethereum, etc
adlai: and for some lols:

BingoBoingo: adlai: It will be open to comments. I'm reactivating thedrinkingrecord for meta talk about Qntra.
BingoBoingo: adlai: But seriously HeySteve made an honest try. The blame for the incident lies with me for it making it past my personal filters.
adlai: i'm way too curious now about the original text. if the problems were primarily stylistic, qntra'd have been better off with an edited version, but that demands more from the [rapidly dwindling number of] editors
BingoBoingo: The fault is not with HeySteve for submitting a piece. It is with me for accepting it in its condition.
BingoBoingo: adlai: The gist was Mark Lyford, who put the banx coin through one dilutional hardfork already, and he's looking to move his coin to a different altcoin's chain in yet another hardfork.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: looks pretty good
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: in your place, i'd ask for submissions in 'markdown' format, instead of html, but this is a matter of aesthetics and perlscript solely.
asciilifeform: (markdown is considerably more human-readable in the editor)
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: thank you, HTML markup in on plaintext is because my human is more capable of reading that than reddit fail language. Also easier to proof for how machines read, which unfortunately most qntra readers use.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Seriously, take the endoscope and find a new orfice in that.
adlai: BingoBoingo: "Level 1 of assbot's Web of Trust", "replaced in a published piece". not sure why preformatted snippets need special treatment, what's wrong with <pre>?
BingoBoingo: adlai: Molestation in transit. If the whole thing is GPG encrypted fine, but I feel much safer if code and signed material are encrypted seperately to survive transit.
asciilifeform: since we're on the subject, nothing prevents an enemy from intercepting the message and re-encrypting own substitute to your key
asciilifeform: (nothing, that is, other than signature by author. which is not part of the guide)
adlai: can't hurt to just require all submissions to be `gpg --armor --sign --encrypt`ed
BingoBoingo: Signature is nice, but if Hitler writes better than submitter I don't yet have objections to hitler giving submitter shares. But that is an issue
adlai: misplaced attribution can be harmful both ways
BingoBoingo: More urgent to me now is no more submissions autogenerated by MS WTF.
adlai: or, as eloquently put by theresa heinz kerry... "you said that i said something that i didn't say, so you can shove it"
BingoBoingo: If preet wants to write on how much he sucks and give the shares to kakobrekla I dun know that I or kakobrekla ought to object on the first pass
BingoBoingo: But talk on signatures is something I should incorporate in the next draft
BingoBoingo: Fuck it, signatures are going in the next draft to make the key to point shares at easier too.

BingoBoingo: Gotta assume readers know how to work their browsers
mircea_popescu: Send code snippets and GPG signed material in separate GPG encrypted blocks. This protects them from painful mutilation. < ? !
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That line break shit that was a pain in the foundation mailing list. Probably ought to all be signed. The line break mutilation trash though has to go and GPG encryption is the only read way to prevent it.
mircea_popescu: hm
BingoBoingo: Encrypted means it was either a turd when sent or we're fucked. So as asciilifeform pointed out sigs are probably a must too.
BingoBoingo: It's overkill to need cyphertext for this purpose, but it kills line break mutilation
adlai: you can armor+sign without encrypt
BingoBoingo: But decrypt deflates so much prettier and there has been so much shit with signed but unverifiable material on the mailing list
BingoBoingo: Fuck with a clearsigned payload it is trash. Fuck with an encrypted payload it is nothing.

pete_dushenski: greetings
pete_dushenski: i see we have some format wars afoot
pete_dushenski: vhs v. beta redux !
pete_dushenski: (Right : He said "this sucks". Wrong : He said "this sucks.") << not a fan of this 'right'
pete_dushenski: if that's the rule, i'll abide, but if it's up for discussion, i'm in favour of the 'wrong.'
BingoBoingo: "In my safe space... "
trinque: pete_dushenski: it's an odd rule, if considered right in english grammar. I'm not aware of the rules in other languages. Regardless, why do the quotes eat the punctuation at the end of the sentence, but require no internal puntuation when the sentence quoted otherwise would.
trinque: seems rather odd that some side effect from that which is quoting the inner material should end up inside the quotation
pete_dushenski: it does a bit eh
BingoBoingo: Either way the language is broken
pete_dushenski: "Links to sources out of WoT and links to dynamic pages should be followed with a link to an archive.is snapshot of the page in the form (archived)" << the thing about this is that assbot's wot =! BingoBoingo's wot =! author's wot. so whose wot is the correct wot ?
trinque: hell, if we're uprooting other things, why should the greedy quotation marks be safe!
pete_dushenski: " Links to sources out of Level 1 of assbots Web or Trust and links to dynamic pages that change content as a function of their nature should be followed with a link to an archive.is snapshot of the page in the form" << specified here, mind you.
mircea_popescu: right it's exactly the opposite of "literary" english.
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: When playing safe, play safe. Assbot L1
pete_dushenski: trinque down with the fat cat quotation marks !
trinque: heh
punkman: I never liked that rule, ever since learning it in school. never used it either I think
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo i can live with that
trinque: punkman: I don't either, likely due to string quoting in programming.
pete_dushenski: <b></b> for bold and <i></i> for italic << my dumdum wp install does <strong></strong> for bold and <em></em> for italic. don't ask why but it seems unnecessary to specify which precise tags to use if strong/em seem to work just as well as b/i, which they do.
pete_dushenski: (ftr 8-week-olds won't go the fuck to sleep)
punkman: strong and em were in vogue for a while, but then html5 brought b/i backj
pete_dushenski: aha.
punkman: supposedly they have some "semantic" diffeence
BingoBoingo: It matters for backwards compatibility
punkman: fuck <strong> anyway
trinque: the whole semantic thing in html is horse-shit
pete_dushenski: "Unsigned material will not be publicly acknolwedged in any manner for any reason, ever." << hear hear
mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski except b and i are deprecated.
mircea_popescu: o wait they're back ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: They were undepreciated
pete_dushenski: "and every third past contravex post article keeping up with the news ones is a good starting point." << kinda broken, BingoBoingo. no comprendo
mircea_popescu: a in that case let's instead go b i
mircea_popescu: they're shorter.
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: Sorry, new
pete_dushenski: every third past ?
pete_dushenski: post article ?
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: You also write to much to make every contravex mandatory, every third past article.
BingoBoingo: May they pick their index article well
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu b i works. is that what you use on trilema ?
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo ;D
mircea_popescu: mostly.
mircea_popescu: im not even sure tbh
BingoBoingo: Now <center> and other alignment tags, depreciated still
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu inquiring minds !
BingoBoingo: But also super unnecessary
pete_dushenski: No footnotes in the first (or only) paragraph of a submission. << good idea. i've been guilty of this and it does look sloppy
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo indeed.
trinque: BingoBoingo: in those cases it's somewhat reasonable; CSS does that
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: You've been very guilty of that. Now it is official.
BingoBoingo: trinque: Yes CSS does that
trinque: the idea with "em" and other such "semantic" tags were to remove the notion that any particular reader would be used
trinque: this is completely foolish
punkman: trinque: the whole semantic thing in html is horse-shit << well I can't say I prefer <div> and <table> to <article> and <nav>, but maybe that's because I write crawlers often
trinque: how is my link in my article not also nav
trinque: and so on; they're very poorly defined
punkman: trinque: quite, but still
trinque: I wouldn't want to take your crawler from you; I'd just prefer it were crawling structured data that is solely data
punkman: I'm also gonna hate you if your <img> is a <div> with a background
trinque: not mixed with presentation
trinque: point being your crawler wants facts not tag soup
pete_dushenski: i was suprised to see that neither BingoBoingo nor mircea_popescu mentioned a guideline for a space (or no space) after the last word in a sentence and any subsequent question/exclamation mark.
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: It's html, there is no second space. Browser enforces that unless you a a dick who adds a second &nbsp
trinque: punkman: to take this to the absurd extreme, imagine your crawler had to OCR an image of the web page
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo i use a space 90% of the time on contravex, but i've been even less consistent in qntra submissions.
punkman: trinque: I do that
punkman: :P
BingoBoingo: So before it gets to that debate you have to ask yourself "Am I that much of a pretentious dick" or am I going to trust the reading software to know.
trinque: well I mean, what one does to cope with a world of shit is forgivable
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: For a browser to care you actually have to use the special character to force the second space.
pete_dushenski: "Who said smartphones weren't useful ?" v. "(Run moar winbloze!™)" << though i seem to only use a question/exclamation mark once every 4-5 articles, so maybe not a big deal.
pete_dushenski: BingoBoingo pretty sure you don't need second &nbsp...
pete_dushenski: it's just... a space.
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: For a browser to care you do.
trinque: browser smashes multiple spaces to one

mircea_popescu: Political TV punditry is like sports for the intellectual set. You get to keep track of who's on which team, who gets traded, who made what play last night...and none of it could possibly matter less to what actually makes the world go 'round. At least sports fans don't have the same delusion of their choice of entertainment "mattering".

mircea_popescu: "Washington was a land developer, often described as the richest of his generation. By the end of the American Revolution, General Washington controlled about sixty thousand acres of land" << and there lies the debunk. it's true that george washington was well off. it's true he controlled some tens of k's of acres. it is UNTRUE that made him "richest in his generation".
mircea_popescu: acreage was ~1 dollar per. ONE YEAR of govt sales produced in excess of 1mn dollars during "normal" times and well over 10 mn during speculative bubbles.
pete_dushenski: mayhaps 'of politicians'
mircea_popescu: he certainly wasn't poor, but that's as far as that goes.
mircea_popescu: (at the time the 60k acres were perhaps worth a few k ounces of gold. maybe. for instance.)
pete_dushenski: i'm not sure what it is with americans imagining that their founding fathers lived in filth and squalour their entire lives.
pete_dushenski: as if that was the only true basis for their xtianity reborn
pete_dushenski: the americans at home are free to correct me here, tis just my impression from afar
pete_dushenski: i guess it could be the mistaken belief that 'men of the people are by definition the people incarnate and are therefore as average as anyone even though we remember only the names of the best of us and not those of the men who were truly average and truly of the people'
trinque: really depends on which americans.

trinque: in discussing this with a friend recently, I supposed that the founding fathers might never have dreamed that the lowest would end up included in the category of "people"
trinque: though I don't know what they thought would have prevented it
mircea_popescu: certainly many things fellows'd have never dreamed. like, anyone seriously discussing "animal rights", or industrial robots, take your pick

mircea_popescu: not that this specific FORM is required, but do you follow the LOGIC involved ?
mircea_popescu: i have to dig it out of you with irons that "hey, i researched this for five days, there's three dozen wrong things" ? why, because you hate the world ?
HeySteve: it was originally titled: BanxShares: BitAsset or BitLiability?
mircea_popescu: here's how a qntrable 2 would look : "The original business plan said "X, Y and Z" in relevant part, and it attracted ~10 BTC. Then it was changed to "nonY and cvasi Z no mention of X" leaving the original investors hanging.
mircea_popescu: here's how a qntrable 3 would look : the first hardfork occured on x date, y days after launch, and did z. the second x' y' did z'. the third etc. and now coming soo nthe nth, doing etc"

mod6: so with V, you can use a command called "press" that will patch up through a given HEAD.
jurov: that's easiest to plug in. alternatively, there is git support
mod6: and "press" will output this automatic patching process to an output directory. I could bundle that up and send it to you if that's what you mean?
jurov: anyway, i don't have any idea how you want it to be laid out. lxr's idea of versions is just a flat list.

mircea_popescu: yea
mircea_popescu: of course the other problem in question may actually be one of those "ensconced rock" type of things, ie, we've not fully conceptualized the implications.
mircea_popescu: specifically : does this actually need to make a "line of code" a graph node ?
ascii_field: it does.
mircea_popescu: well this actually changes everything... should we be saving directly asts ?
mircea_popescu: "line of code" is about as meaningful as "nice butt"
ascii_field: no, because it is pointless to save something that can be re-derived.
mircea_popescu: but derived from what, a line of code is just a meaningless string
ascii_field: derived from the patch set.
mircea_popescu: same "line of code" can be on three lines.
ascii_field: well yes, which is why a link has to encode ~which~ point in the patchspace it links to.
ascii_field: not merely 'file.cpp line#xxxx'
mircea_popescu: but see, you wish to link to "lines of code" except these are lower than the minimal granularity ; they only catch meaning after the ast was derived from the whole program
mircea_popescu: ie you may be asking for a .1 reference in a 1 metric space.
ascii_field: well, more concretely, today i wanted to link to one of the places where funkenstein introduced a mistake

mircea_popescu: "Just a piece of advice. If you are ever arrested, make sure to ask for a jury. As for two juries. If your lawyer says the words "bench" and "trial" at any point in the same paragraph, flee to Argentina. Those 12 idiots, imperfect as they are, are one of the only things protecting you from a top down, hierarchical, classist, flow chart wielding government clusterfuck that has no time, interest, or money to deal wit
mircea_popescu: h people as individuals, so it deals with them as groups, types, diagnoses and organ banks."
