10:51 kentnl how does x_deprecated presently get used?
10:55 punter joined #metacpan
11:01 haarg neilb is using it for the prc.  aside from that, it isn't used anywhere yet afaik.
11:02 neilb hopefully MetaCPAN will use it to highlight deprecated dists, since it can’t really rely on /deprecated/ :-)
11:02 haarg https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-web/issues/1435
11:19 kentnl neilb: how often does that PRC queue update?
11:19 * kentnl might just have started looking at it for a list of "things I should check myself to see if they need anything obvious"
11:20 kentnl And I'm kinda confused how some of my dists are scoring a 4 ... but *shrug*
11:20 neilb kentnl: yeah, I need to update the page so you can see a breakdown of where the score came from. ether keeps bugging me about that.

14:48 oalders neilb: you know, there is a way to allow people to see how the dists are being scored...
14:48 * neilb waits with bated breath
14:49 alh_ joined #metacpan
14:49 * oalders wonders how many private repositories neilb has in his github account
14:52 vroom joined #metacpan
14:55 ChoiKyuSang joined #metacpan
14:57 * ranguard wonders how many repos neilb has on a non-backedup laptop ;)
14:58 neilb zero!
14:58 oalders :)
14:58 ranguard oalders: he must use bitbucket ;)
14:58 oalders :D
14:58 neilb a previous laptop got nicked, and I’d happened to have backed it up the night before.
14:59 neilb we bought a work doobrey to ensure laptops are backed up at least daily
14:59 ranguard man, fastly does stagger the imagination... 1.8 million requests per second at the moment - 360 Gb/s
15:00 * ranguard has just bit the bullet and bought a Time Capsule (mostly for the router, backup being a bonus)
15:05 oalders i've had mixed success with Time Capsule so this time i just bought a seagate drive and plug it into my laptop.  that seems less flaky
15:05 ranguard oalders: I heard the first few versions were bad, but they got a lot better
15:06 oalders i hope so. mine eventually just died :)
15:06 ranguard oalders: eek, the routing bit as well?
15:07 oalders no, just the drive, but the routing seemed kind of bad too.  i replaced it with some airport express boxes
15:07 oalders the work well as repeaters
15:07 oalders *they
15:07 ranguard can you use the airport express directly to your cable modem then?
15:08 oalders yep and then you can add more boxes to expand your coverage
15:08 ranguard oh!
15:09 oalders i don't have to piggyback off my neighbour's wifi anymore
15:11 ranguard I ordered an express as well, so I'll get both, try setup just the express and see how that goes :)
15:11 oalders takes 2 minutes

17:42 * ether had a hard drive disaster a few months ago and lost a lot of data
17:42 * ether is *still* ddrescue-ing that drive to try to recover it
17:43 * ether has been in the habit of doing lots of work in several git repos at once via perl -p -i -e or 'vim `find git/*someglob*`' and not committing the results until I feel I need to do a release..
17:43 ether so there was a lot of stuff not checked in
17:43 ether going forward I will be more rigorous about automated backups
17:44 ether a new 1TB portable cost $70 which I thought was amazing
17:44 ether we're living in the *future*!
17:44 ether in university I spent $250 buying a 4 MB stick of RAM!! :o
17:48 neilb joined #metacpan
18:23 haarg i lost a bit of work on one project when my hd failed a couple years ago.  basically everything else was uploaded somewhere.
18:24 haarg i have no problem rewriting public branches though, so i just push whatever
18:38 ether yeah, I even force-push to master (up to the last release tag of course) if it's not a dist maintained by multiple people
18:39 * ether is going to try to get into the habit of pushing in-progress branches more
18:39 ether I am sometimes self-conscious about showing my incomplete and buggy report - it's like going outside in your underwear :)
18:39 ether s/report/work/
18:46 haarg i have a private git server for things i don't want to be public, but that's mostly or things like dotfiles
18:46 haarg where i'm not confident i won't accidentally leak something at some point
18:47 haarg bad code can spur useful conversations so i'm generally fine with pushing whatever garbage i have in progress
