a111: Logged on 2016-12-23 14:55 mircea_popescu: suppose we had a rule stating that "all patches must include as a comment the patch upon they are to be applied" ?
mircea_popescu: o wow.
mircea_popescu: settled then.
asciilifeform: the hilarious bit : the orcogram in question is a ~short stroke~
asciilifeform: really oughta be asciifiable
asciilifeform: ( it's still missing the îțâșă )

a111: Logged on 2016-11-29 14:43 phf: we had a thread when diff was first discussed as a way to do patches (i think maybe before even v), where i was erring on the side of no unicode support on the grounds that if we decide to support unicode we have to, to borrow asciilifeforms, drink the whole spittoon
asciilifeform: fwiw i'm not wholly convinced re 'whole spittoon'
mircea_popescu: res judicata, fortunately.
mircea_popescu: in a totally meta-point : can you BELIEVE how INCREHEHEHEEEEDIBLY useful our whole infrastructure actually is ?
mircea_popescu: no court in the history of the legal profession ever managed the pinnacle of legal achievement on display here in this past HALF HOUR omfg.

shinohai: In mircea_popescu bitcointalk lulz: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1935018.0
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform here's a lulz for you : before making the fain@polimedia item discussed in logs recently ( http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-28#1730110 etc) i actually attempted a... ro dictionary full rewrite. was called "adex".☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-10-28 05:58 mircea_popescu: hanbot you prolly recall, old fain datas, http://trilema.com/2011/2022353/
shinohai: Apparently I missed that one
mircea_popescu: so now, upon proceeding with this item of yours, i obviously reopened that 7 year old directory. wherein i found...
mircea_popescu: an antique and therefore reliable copy of the dex (dictionar explicativ al limbii romane). 80 mb's worth.
mircea_popescu: i presume you want ?
asciilifeform: aha!
asciilifeform: in other pipeline, the 'proverbs' item is hopelessly bitrotten, i'ma jettison it. the 'tech' and 'expressions' otoh are ready, dedupped, and flipped ( so as ro->eng )
mircea_popescu: shinohai lel
asciilifeform: and ready for either genesisation or not
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how many lines the expression item ? (tech i will asume worthl;ess sight unseen -- bot didn't write a ro tech dictionary and ~nobody else was qualified to)
asciilifeform: http://www.loper-os.org/pub/ro_eng_tech.txt http://www.loper-os.org/pub/ro_eng_expr.txt << 313333337 w4r3z
asciilifeform: again, за что купил зато и продаю , no guarantee of wtf is in'ere
asciilifeform: ftr, how to flip one of these :
asciilifeform: paste -d'`' <(cut -f2 -d'`' orig_dict.txt) <(cut -f1 -d'`' orig_dict.txt) | sort -n > flipped_dict.txt
asciilifeform: ^^^ worx great ^^^
mircea_popescu: yep, teh tech bit is entirely not worth anyone's time.
asciilifeform: imho the 1st item was much too full of http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-19#1740598 as it was☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-11-19 02:11 asciilifeform: e.g. ' ciclu format din atomi de carbon`carboatomic ring ' and the like.
asciilifeform: might even be worth using the tech list as ~subtractand~
mircea_popescu: "12 este divizibil prin 2`12 is divisible by 2" holy shit. there are some useful expressions in the expression item, however a) very low snr, lots of useless crap and b) idiomatics not really a good fit for dictionary, much better fit in blog articles.
mircea_popescu: consequently ima skip.
asciilifeform: oh btw i cut some truly egregious nonsense from orig item : it had a coupla dozen 'dates of life of great people'
asciilifeform: because apparently when caesar lived totally belongs, according to these folx, in a dictionary.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform lots of good ones missing. "i-a picat fata" (his face fell off) ; "a dat cu mucii-n fasole" (he snotted the refried beans) ; "iti pica fisa ?" (does the coin inserted into your coinslot actually fall through the spuriously complex machinery inside your otherwise empty skull to make the necessary contacts ?) ; "a freca menta" (mintrubbing, absent ?! gimme a break!) ; "ai morcov [in fund] ?" (to have a carrot [up
mircea_popescu: arse]) and so on and so following
asciilifeform: i suspect it's an ancien-regime work
mircea_popescu: it misses so many of the most trite expressions it's not worth mentioning as a dictionary anyway, much in the way a "map" of texas that only had dallas.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform all these are pre 1980.
asciilifeform: it shows
mircea_popescu: the snot item is very likely older than the united states for example.
asciilifeform: i meant it was prolly considered 'unprintable' by the '80s prudes
mircea_popescu: but the coin item is VERY specifically related to apparatus that only existed in the 80s.
mircea_popescu: besides, im pretty sure i saw all of these in ro printed matter.
asciilifeform: then nfi
asciilifeform: afaik a quality 'expressions' dict dun exist for any modern lang. it's a tricky item.

mircea_popescu: sql dump of the whole site.
asciilifeform: ooh neato
asciilifeform: eggog tho
mircea_popescu: mmm
mircea_popescu: da fuck is this wonder
asciilifeform: 404
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform chmoded into correctness, try naos
asciilifeform: nao worx, ty
mircea_popescu: my pleasure
asciilifeform: item looks to be quite practical, also.
mircea_popescu: in other wtfs, girl opens jar, a scent of paradise fills kitchen. i go over to investigate. the item is helpfully labeled : melaza. ie, molasses.
mircea_popescu: this is insufficient, i saw molasses before, not paradise.
asciilifeform: aaah such good times, to have these things on own hdd! instead of wwwnonsense
mircea_popescu: but the label helpfully explains : con gingseng, carao (?!) y cuculmeca.
mircea_popescu: o thank you label of WHAT THE FUCK
asciilifeform: aint that a thing that only grows in equator
asciilifeform: what was it, bread tree ?
mircea_popescu: aooarently it's some local cassia and smilax cordifolia
asciilifeform: https://www.acguanacaste.ac.cr/paginas_especie/plantae_online/magnoliophyta/fabaceae/cassia_grandis/c_grandis12jun98/cassia_grandis_2700/98-ACG-PI-d-2187_g.jpg << fascinating
mircea_popescu: ie "pink shower tree" and catbrier.
mircea_popescu: can conceivably mix into paradise i guess
