18:04 deafferret ..o....    g
18:04 dnewkirk joined #bioperl
18:14 rbuels deafferret: good thing you dropped that before dnewkirk came in.
18:14 * deafferret wipes the sweat from his brow
18:20 * deafferret wipes it on rbuels
18:20 * deafferret tires of hiding behind this plant with rbuels
18:20 * deafferret wonders when dnewkirk is going to finish that cigarette and wander back outside
18:21 * deafferret realizes that merging ~200 wiki pages gets a little tedious
18:22 perl_splut joined #bioperl
18:28 * dnewkirk doesn't smake :p
18:28 * dnewkirk doesn't smoke either
18:28 rbuels sudo deafferret write some natural language processing stuff to do it
18:30 deafferret most of pages need cleaning anyway  :/
18:30 * deafferret smakes em cause he's got em
18:31 deafferret silly Mediawiki
18:38 deafferret whoah... impressive. a bot got past reCAPCHA?  http://biodoc.ist.unomaha.edu/w​iki/Risperdal._Trusted_Generics
18:40 rbuels maybe it was not a bot.
18:40 rbuels there are lots of people in india with nothing to do.
18:43 deafferret need to upgrade to CAPTCDA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Douchebags Apart)
18:43 deafferret :o)
18:50 deafferret hmm... some sort of max upload size in mediawiki/php/apache is alluding me
18:51 deafferret ahh  http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Configuring​_file_uploads#Set_maximum_size_for_file_uploads
18:56 bag_ joined #bioperl
18:57 * deafferret emits a half-hearted soft woot
18:57 deafferret :)
19:15 perl_splut a bot getting past recaptcha isn't that hard
19:15 perl_splut it really only has to succeed at one of the words
19:23 deafferret luckily our site is small enough to attract very few spammers
19:24 perl_splut bots don't really care about size
19:24 perl_splut they care if they can find you
19:25 perl_splut and google is making that very easy to do
19:25 perl_splut there are search techniques that bots can utilize to find sites running certain versions of software that it has been designed to deal with
20:01 kyanardag_ joined #bioperl
20:02 deafferret I assume spammers target sites with more Google juice more aggressively. dunno.
20:03 deafferret ha! bastards  :)   http://gsaf.ist.unomaha.edu/GSAF/i​ndex.php/Avodart._Trusted_Generics
20:04 perl_splut not really. if that were the case they wouldn't be hitting on sites that don't draw a lot of traffic
20:04 perl_splut plus it is a BOT. It doesn't get bored with doing what its been doing for week after week
20:37 deafferret rbuels is a bot, and he gets bored of repetitive tasks pretty frequently. thanks to my futuristic AI, I suppose.
20:41 * deafferret hugs Java, reboots to appease it
20:41 * deafferret hugs WinXP

21:36 dnewkirk hmm
21:38 dnewkirk so if I'm writing a Perl script to output to a file, to be read into R, I need to do the usual plot(data$A, etc...) . The $A there throws off the compiler; is there a way to get Perl to just print out things and not associate them with a variable? I'm using print $out <<DONE at the moment, but that doesn't help in this case...
21:39 rbuels dnewkirk: hmmmmm
21:39 rbuels oh.
21:39 rbuels print $out <<'DONE' will keep it from interpolating variables
21:39 rbuels notice the single quotes
21:40 dnewkirk :)
21:40 rbuels alternatively, if you want to interpolate some variables and not others, you can prefix the ones you *don't* want to interpolate with a backslash
21:40 dnewkirk I knew I had something wrong somewhere. thanks
21:50 deafferret speaking of R, I was quite surprised to find R is a default export datatype for this thingy  http://www.limesurvey.org/
21:51 deafferret err... data format
21:52 deafferret just thought #bioperl would benefit from the tidbit
22:12 deafferret O
22:12 dnewkirk deafferret 0: rbuels 100000?
22:13 deafferret hmm?
22:13 rbuels i'm only version 26.1
22:14 deafferret the deafferret/rbuels ratio has been established at 2.1290322580645161290322580645161
22:15 rbuels that is true
22:28 deafferret huh. phpmyadmin flakiness
23:07 deafferret whee! back to mediawiki merging  :)
