: 2019/11/18 15:31:56 <ave1> spyked, lobbes. Thx!
: in other news, pretty great lobbes piece
. my one curiosity is "what if this had come out back when, say, phf could still have read it", as a forinstance ; but then again as the man says : the next girls will be trained properly.
: (conversely, of course, one could also wonder "what'd have come of that pet had her ower pointed out to her "look, this
is the illustrated story of a woman your age who left behind a career a coupla notches higher than mine to be used properly." but, as the man says, it's never too fucking late. until they turn 30, of course, if you've not started fixing them by they time they tu
: rn 25 you'll be stuck changing them by the time they turn 30.)
: theoretically at least, nothing stops phf from still reading it anyway.
: That's a Jew's harp on the table, that's a crayon in his hand... and the corners of the blueprint are ruined since they rolled far past the stems of thumbtacks that still throw shadows on the wood... and the skylight is like skin for a drum I'll never mend. And all the rain falls down

: Logged on 2020-01-18 11:45:59 mircea_popescu: and incidentally, did you run into this one
: I got a positive response from the rEFInd fellow. Invited him to join #trilema.
: Logged on 2020-01-10 10:29:00 trinque: trying to land that one this weekend too
: on the dissect Gales front, diana_coman reported
a successful install, lobbes got a start, but is sidelining for logger work and expects
to be done by Jan 31 and ...
: (ossasepia) 2020-01-17 diana_coman: jfw: fyi, I got around to build Gales and it seems to have built fine on a CentOS 6 with gcc 4.9.4; there was just a short wtf moment when the... tar cmd failed; it turns out that the --sort option is available only from tar V 1.28 while my local tar is ... 1.23; I didn't see any version spec in the prerequisites though probably my CentOS 6 is about as old everything as one gets nowadays
: spyked plans
to cover it by the end of the month.
: bvt did you see jfw had some issue
leaving a comment on your gales install report ?
: (ossasepia) 2020-01-17 jfw: bvt: left a reply to your Gales report but it's not showing to me even as in moderation. Did it make it to your queue?
: mircea_popescu: I think it's because the 'improvement' is within a href tag
: mircea_popescu: ah I see what you mean. Now this is interesting, this
works just fine for some reason
: (trilema-hanbot) 2020-01-10 hanbot: and take heart, this is part an' parcel of the improvement-->challenge-->failure-->improvement cycle we go over so very often.
: if the text one's selecting is all within a tag, then the selection tool will properly match. But if you cross a tag, like so
, then the markup will interfere
: whaack: ah okay, I see what you mean.
: Although, it looks like in some cases it will default
to selecting the end of the paragraph when done across tag boundaries
: lobbes: the reason for the above behavior is as follows: the start string "yesterday" gets matched. so yesterday becomes "<span style="background-color:#d3d3d3" id="select">yesterday" But there is no match for "Because we were talking". So trilema serves a <span> tag that does not properly close. The way most browsers handle this is to put an implicit </span> before the </p>
