spyked: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-19#1773164 <-- it doesn't send them, but now that you mention it, I might be able to add a (manually-operated) thing that does this. otherwise, thetarpit is just a set of statically-generated pages via handcrafted lisp-based contraption☝︎

spyked: I am working on adding comments (one of the yet-untested ideas is reading only gpg-signed comments), but that's a low-priority item on todo list atm
shinohai: Oh hey spyked .... nice of you to pop in. imho you are welcome anytime.
spyked: thanks shinohai. :D the plan is to (at the very least) periodically share items of republican interest that I'm working on (e.g. ada lisp). progress has been very slow so far, but it's picking up
shinohai: I was pretty impressed with your blog for sure, I am a terrible blogger myself. I might do better if I actually had a server to set up a blog on, but future project.
shinohai: What do you use to generate your pages spyked, if I may ask? I have wp-mp of course, but my host charges more to set up mysql and crap so haven't ever done that yet.
mircea_popescu: o hai spyked
mircea_popescu: you ever hear that russell butade, "the problem with the world is that the idiots are cocksure while the smart people are full of doubt" ?
spyked: shinohai, I use a self-rolled static page generator based on Common Lisp (CL-WHO) (and Pandoc for parsing Markdown, but pandoc and markdown are both optional, of course). I have the source code published on shithub, but it's mostly hacked together, so in this sense not very different from any static site generator. https://github.com/spyked/thetarpit.org <-- coad and text
mircea_popescu: spyked phf uses a similar (handrolled, unpuiblished) item ; meanwhile lisp languishes in a sad marsh of unusability.\
shinohai: Ah neat, thanks spiked! Will give a look-over
mircea_popescu: how about you genesis it ?
spyked: hi mircea_popescu. sure, I remember russell's thing. but is that really a problem? (as long as there's a republic to squash the cocksure idiots)
mircea_popescu: yes. for the lisp languishes reason above.
spyked: sure, would be happy to cut apart the useful (non-thetarpit) bits and genesis.
mircea_popescu: can go on the shelf!
mircea_popescu was considering making a similar item too, it's a pretty good idea.
spyked: there are some dependencies on cl-who and a few other libraries, which for now are taken as they are (similarly to trb "deps")
spyked: so I'd probably sign them separately?
mircea_popescu: hey, there ~already exists~ a sort of primitive "code shelf" on s.mg site : http://minigame.biz/eulora/source/
mircea_popescu: it includes such wonders as frozen nvidia drivers (binary)
spyked: hm. "This exists because sourceforge went down for a week during July 2015, making it necessary to maintain local copies."; yeah, publishing these makes a lot of sense. I don't know if I'd find all the libraries I used for the blog if I were to look for them again.
spyked: which reminds me that there are a lot of things that I've left hanging since december, e.g. the w3m-js shinohai found that I rebased, and the ns-js library. left hanging because I haven't yet figured how to make trilema js anchors highlight in w3m-js (or any other text browser)
mircea_popescu: well so then!
mircea_popescu: as to the chat, i'd much hear your malformed oppinions than http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-19#1772852 ; http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-19#1772915 ; http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=%22+orlo%22 ; http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=yarvin ; http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=Yudkowsky and the rest of the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-08#1767149☝︎☝︎☝︎

mircea_popescu: at least with you i know it's not intentional.
shinohai: That w3m-js code is hairy indeed spyked .... its on back burner because been helping test some V changes and muddling through EuCrypt.
spyked: mircea_popescu, I wanna first get a working item (js highlighting for trilema anchors) then make everything link into a static binary, then post them. as they are right now, I expect them to be unusable on many systems (e.g. musl-gentoo).
mircea_popescu: that's a plan
spyked: but yeah, ^ w3m code is weird. and besides, I don't know how text highlighting is supposed to work in a text-based browser. highlighting seems to be a terminal thing, which is weird, because both w3m and lynx/links can be compiled with mouse support! which is essential for that js snippet in trilema, because iirc it relies on onMouse* events.
mircea_popescu: highlighting in this novel sense is a mouse concept
mircea_popescu: very different from the alt-6 mark style of kbd term
mircea_popescu: (but it is in some areas a progress -- for instance it has no concept of lines! all http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-06#1765765 )☝︎

spyked: aha. in particular, trilema anchors are generated based on the occurence of js dom-tree elements. wait, I'm gonna find an example
mircea_popescu: no, i know, it is.
mircea_popescu: dom-tree being html's retarded version of an ast.
spyked: yeah. ideally, I would like to be able to look at the link and figure out to which text snippet it refers manually. or at least have a way to compute without parsing html. hm.
spyked: (what I'm trying to do is separate the browser/linking text snippets part from the need to embed an entire js interpreter in there.)
mircea_popescu: myeah.
spyked: in theory, the browser itself could do the highlighting. but this breaks the URL scheme by introducing a magic "#selection-x.y-z.w" class of anchors.
mircea_popescu: you will need a scripting lang to do scripty things howsoever you turn it
mircea_popescu: spyked re pingback thing, doesn't even have to be that hand-generated ; just walk the db, extract all links, construct the calls as shown and make curl calls. can be a bash script.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-01-20#1773258 << i dun think this is such hot stuff ; i personally wouldn't bother to sign just to leave a comment. but if you care, here's an alternative : make a bot, have comments be sent to it via command. iirc danielpbarron had something somewhat in this vein, dun recall how automated tho☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-01-20 11:42 spyked: I am working on adding comments (one of the yet-untested ideas is reading only gpg-signed comments), but that's a low-priority item on todo list atm
spyked: calls should go only to WP links though, right? I don't remember how Wordpress did it (did it look for /xmlrpc.php ?). though I suppose it should work either way (non-WP links would 404 and that's that)
spyked: the commentbot idea sounds pretty neat
mircea_popescu: so if they go to non-wp links what happens.
mircea_popescu: 99% of all the stuff in anyone's www log is crap anyway ; going up to 100% in the case of facebook world.
mircea_popescu: this is not even a fair statement : if you notice such a call in your log fail, it is YOUR item that is broken. the assumption that you're pingbackable is in fact ~The Right Thing~.

spyked is reading the spec ( http://archive.is/FQ7P ); until now, lived with the wrong idea that pingbacks are a wp-dependent thing. but hey, it looks pretty clear!

mircea_popescu: 2. if i upload items, i'd very much like to use the already extant uploader ; but that thing puts everything in year/month directories. tho i think this is actually a good thing, tell people "do not link item directly, link the code shelf itself".
mircea_popescu: the problem is that this intuition would seem imply that there are actually TWO kinds of links, ie first class and second class, and this is what ineptitudes like http code 30x are trying to implement
asciilifeform has never used the wp uploaders, or given wp write-access to any unixdir
mircea_popescu: "do not use 2nd class link as 1st class link".
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, and alf has also never uploaded ten thousand images. which need to be autoscaled in multiple sizes and so on.
asciilifeform: autoscaled?!
mircea_popescu: yes.

diana_coman: ftr I'm still on wp purely because there has always been something else topping the pile; I just about switched to statically generated pages too but I didn't really find a reasonable way to keep comments in

phf: in unrelated i managed to produce a literate programming dvi out of diff's source code from first principles. the actual content is not really a literate programing, since it was mechanically produced, and it doesn't yet compile since cat of headers and source produce a bunch of duplicate definitions, but first step.
phf: dvi>ps i had to use a full tex install, because i haven't found a non-modern dvips implementation yet.
phf: works out to about 170 pages of very nicely typeset source code. this is actually first time i'm working with printed source code proper (unlike ascii i prefer to work on-screen) and it's quite a joy
phf: by the way, knuth's CWEB nicely solves the whole auto-wrapped comment issue. the TeX part doesn't mandate newlines, and obviously does it's own formatting, but the C part is also very aggressively formatted by the CWEB code. specifically /* comments */ are treated as TeX source, and get re-wrapped according to TeX rules.
asciilifeform: phf: consider posting ?
phf: it's considered, i'm just thinking from which side to start unraveling this spitoon
phf: also the whole exercise only becomes worthwhile if i can also produce reasonable html out of the cweb source, since there's general allergy here to pdf/ps
asciilifeform: eh my printer eats ps, pdf.
