phf: asciilifeform: ty, and another question, where was the code for that com1 to display thing that you had? ☟︎
phf: heh, we now also have a heathen logger.
mircea_popescu: i invited him, actually.
phf nods
mircea_popescu: possibly the most logged channel on freenode, by now.
phf: i like some features that he has, live updates, also the convention of <date>#<id>;<filter>
phf: so, e.g. https://irclog.whitequark.org/trilema/2017-11-24#20622825;heathen
phf: err, wait that actually made no sense..
mircea_popescu: seems to work, like a search.
phf: well, right, it highlights a specific post, but also filters, so ...#;foo works as a whole day filter
mircea_popescu: not a terrible idea, imo.
mircea_popescu: in fact, a per-day filtered-histogram could conceivably be very fucking useful hunting down large topics.
mircea_popescu: put one pixel line per day, from top to bottom, counting the occurences of $filter.
phf: that would be a useful feature, that's almost like a part of search functionality
mircea_popescu: sorta numerically enhanced topic finding.
phf: because #; in question is a javascript and for a specific day. since we use links for xref, i'm not sure what the semantic value of linking is going to be in that case. also mandatory javascript
mircea_popescu: not mandatory js at all, can do this server side
mircea_popescu: make a call like histograph?derpage, puts out a png with the histograph for that item
phf: oh you mean your example, not what whitequark has
mircea_popescu: well yes.
mircea_popescu: i don't think the functionality as such is particularly useful, i prefer the search. however the perspective actually is, filters would prolly empower the searching mind.
mircea_popescu: some kind of noun density or such.
mircea_popescu: phf you know what you could do, add it to search pages. would that be a lot of cpu ? to spit out a png maybe 2k x 200 tall, and link it from a compressed version on the search page.
phf: that's what i'm thinking :)
mircea_popescu: compressed version always page width, allowing thus to produce a proper as-wide-as-days-to-date item.
phf: hmm, i'm not groking the whole compressed version thing
mircea_popescu: let's specify.
mircea_popescu: you decide on an image to be displayed on search page, specifically. "i want it 1024 x 168 pixels". you separately produce a png, as wide as day count, and as tall as daycount * 168 / 1024 rounded. you fill that png with the proper lines, proportionally (so highest count day gets full line, all other days get proportional line). then you scale it down to 1024 x 168. you publish this scaled down item on the search page, and yo
mircea_popescu: u use it as an anchor to the full size item.
mircea_popescu: can keep all of these in a world-accessible directory which is purged say weekly. or whatever, "once a week of all items older than a week" like the pastes.
phf: ah word
mircea_popescu: sorta like what you already do with line debit per day.
mircea_popescu: but, honestly, you might ALSO make that full width and use the same approach for it.
mircea_popescu: as opposed to the current what is it.
phf: right now it's tracking proportional message count per hour, so perhaps message count per minute, but then it's a 1440 pixels width
phf: hmm, actually i don't think per minute is any indicator of anything.
mircea_popescu: you just decide on a pixel count based on your design, and then you split the 24 * 3600 day into that many units
mircea_popescu: you'll basically get a smoother curve than what you have now
mircea_popescu: hm, this isn't very workable in fact, your log page is not fixed width is it. just flows.
BingoBoingo: In other graphics https://i.imgur.com/y4Src5L.png
mircea_popescu: wut is this inept crap
phf: so right now we have exactly 2048 days of log (though that number makes me suspect maybe my day counter is broken somehow)
mircea_popescu: o.O
mircea_popescu: this calls for like a celebration or something.
mircea_popescu: phf heathen doesn't even begin to describe it btw. fellow has not just the logger, but a pile of cogent stuff, say https://lab.whitequark.org/notes/2017-11-08/accessing-intel-ich-pch-gpios/ while at the same time managing to work for patent nonsense (quantum computer makers etc), retweeting alf's favourite isis and so on and so forth.

mircea_popescu: phf http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=mircea_popescu << lol
mircea_popescu: pretty great new toy imo
phf: so the bucket is made by running truncate against a certain divisor on the message timestamp in seconds. so playing with divisor gives me more/less coarse buckets
phf: right now the bucket is basically 2 days (i.e. 2*24*60*60)
phf: kind of affects the nature of data, but still preserves the general shape
phf: i think the only worthwhile optimization left to do is roll the image generation into search.. because right now i'm doing double work, once for the search and once for the image.
phf: (there can still be a linked separate endpoint that generates a standalone image, possibly at a lower coarseness, etc.)
phf: the search, btw, cheats. it walks enough history to produce enough entries for current page+5 more pages, so searching for something like mircea_popescu is super fast, because you get 500 entries in less messages
phf: that's the meaning of 500+, but it gets gradually expanded as you follow the pages, so the speed starts dropping. so the last page of mircea_popescu search (http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=mircea_popescu&page=512) takes 0.3s, which is maxint it takes to walk the whole history
phf: the image generator though has to walk the whole history at once, requiring the same 0.3s at once
