07:10 * idiosyncrat has a misbehaving Internet connection, again
07:10 idiosyncrat I've started to revise the Marpa theory paper before, but I've been overambitious,
07:11 idiosyncrat and tried to do a lot of new math as part of it.
07:11 idiosyncrat With the result that the better became the enemy of the good.
07:13 idiosyncrat This time I'm just updating it to reflect the changes in the Marpa algorithm.
07:13 idiosyncrat This time I'm just updating it to reflect the changes in the Marpa algorithm.  Particularly that I no longer use the LR(0) states from the Aycock and Horspool papers.
07:14 idiosyncrat Good night!
07:14 idiosyncrat Actually, morning. :-)
07:14 idiosyncrat ronsavage: Thanks!

16:06 idiosyncrat_ My work on the revised Marpa theory paper is in a github repo
16:07 idiosyncrat_ pczarn: I'd be pleased to learn of a typo.  If you could make it in the form of a pull request, that'd be great.
16:28 idiosyncrat_ I had planned to simply forge ahead on Kollos, but I've discovered that people are now carefully reading the theory paper.
16:29 idiosyncrat_ In which case, there really should be a version covering the current implementation more closely.
17:09 ernimril idiosyncrat_, it will be very interesting to read that later on. :-)
18:30 idiosyncrat_ ronsavage: "Why did I roll back the use of Aycock&Horspool's LR(0) states" is turning into a frequently asked question.
18:30 idiosyncrat_ If someone could find the places I discussed this (in the Google group, IIRC) it would save me a bit of time.
18:31 idiosyncrat_ And we could add it to the FAQ
18:31 idiosyncrat_ ronsavage: Also, maybe the FAQ should be pulled out of the Marpa Papers, and made into its own thing and given a more prominent positioning on the web site?

22:51 ronsavage jk: I'll look into your comments. And yes, the FAQ can easily be split out.
