15:04 pdurbin hmm, ilbot didn't turn this into a clickable link: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/cr​imsonfu/2012-11-20#i_6169744
15:05 pdurbin here, i'll just paste the link here too: http://software.rc.fas.harvard.edu/ganglia2/​ganglia2_storage/graph.php?r=hour&z=xlar​ge&title=&vl=&x=&n=&hreg[]=gvm\d%2B&mreg[]=bytes_%28in|out%29&gtype=line&​glegend=show&aggregate=1&embed=1&_=1353355017225
16:33 moritz yes, [] in URLs should be encoded
16:49 pdurbin "not all valid URLs are recognized" -- https://github.com/moritz/ilbot/b​lob/master/lib/IrcLog/WWW.pm#L363 :)
16:51 moritz yes, you can't make it right for everyone
16:52 pdurbin so we can't fix it?
16:53 moritz it can be fixed, at the expense of other stuff not working as some people expect it to
17:05 pdurbin other links wouldn't be clickable, you mean?
17:07 moritz they would be clickable, but they'd include characters not meant for the URL
17:07 pdurbin huh. interesting
17:07 moritz for example if you write something about http://google.com/, the comma in there is legal part of the URL
17:07 moritz but that's not what people mean
17:07 moritz so I add some hacks that try to guess what people actualy mean
17:07 moritz and sometimes they fail
17:07 pdurbin sure. it's silly for people to type that though. they should know better ;)
17:08 moritz yes, but people don't know better
17:08 pdurbin liberal in what you accept
22:20 moritz joined #ilbot
