00:15 rjbs wow, what an odd wrong channel I picked
00:26 alh Metacpan, metabugs, eh, it works
04:07 Khisanth joined #metacpan
04:51 ether rjbs: eh, it's all the same people anyway no matter where you go :D
04:56 Grinnz we're actually all different personalities of ether
05:04 ether that would explain a few things
05:04 ether like all the voices I hear
05:11 trs joined #metacpan
05:14 jberger and all the modules
05:14 jberger it could be worse than being an ether alter-ego I suppose
05:15 jberger at least then I wouldn't be getting an orange ego-maniac as my <s>president</s> generalissimo
05:18 Grinnz glorious leader

14:41 ranguard hi reyjrar - just a quick ping on that rsyslog->es thingy... how's it going :) ?
14:42 * ranguard might be able to get someone at work to help if you need more people working on it
14:43 karjala What's the maximum length of a Release name?
14:43 karjala I see this here name, for example, that breaks my program: https://metacpan.org/pod/Acme::Working::Out::Dependencies::From::META::files::Will::Be::Wrong::At::Some::Point:????:This::Module::For::Instance
14:45 ranguard don't know if there is one
14:46 karjala I'll ignore releases with names > 100 chars then
14:47 mst karjala: why does it break your program?
14:47 karjala my database field has maxlength 100, and insert crashes with error
14:47 karjala if I truncate it I'll be fine
14:47 karjala or better yet, ignore it
14:48 mst err, in postgres you can just use 'text'
14:48 mst which will handle way more than that
14:48 mst why do it the hard way?
14:48 karjala correct!
14:48 karjala :-)
14:48 jberger karjala: are you using postgres?
14:48 karjala MySQL
14:48 jberger ah, too bad
14:48 mst yeah, don't do that
14:48 mst nobody's paying you to waste your time
14:48 karjala mysql has TEXT also
14:49 ranguard or at least varchar(255) would do
14:49 mst yes, but mysql's text is shit
14:49 jberger I love that in postgres using a character limit is actually slower than just a text:-P
14:49 mst right
14:49 mst that's because postgres is a grown up database
14:49 mickey karjala: note that the url you posted has a 'module' name in it, not 'release'. what will you do if the release name is short and some mode path in it is too long?
14:49 jberger I'm learning that postgres still has a little ways to go in terms of HA deployment
14:50 karjala mickey: what's a "mode path"?
14:50 jberger mst: that thing you showed me at QAH was close, and some upcoming things are closer
14:50 mickey *module
14:50 mst jberger: postgres has a little way to go in terms of HA deployment that doesn't require you to actually think as you configure the system, certainly
14:50 karjala I'll have to take that possibility into consideration too
14:52 jberger we are currently using https://github.com/compose/governor
14:54 mst looks ok
14:54 mst there's also ... ech, the smartos/DCOS people had something or other but I forget
15:02 jberger I think the real solution is BDR, eventually
15:03 jberger oh and look! http://blog.2ndquadrant.com/bdr-is-coming-to-postgresql-9-6/
15:03 Tux_ joined #metacpan
15:03 jberger what timing
15:21 Relequestual joined #metacpan
15:51 Grinnz no reason not to just use varchar(255) or varchar(65355) if you need to
15:51 Grinnz mysql handles that fine
15:52 Grinnz i mean, not *great*, but fine

17:34 reyjrar ranguard: have the code written, but I have run it yet.. should be doing that soon.. depending on eye status (I'm having complications from an earlier eye surgery)
18:12 ranguard reyjrar: eek, feel/see better!
18:13 ranguard reyjrar: is it online somewhere I can get someone to see how it works - even if not tested?
18:16 reyjrar ranguard: hmm.. forgot to setup the github bits.. will do that once I'm done my deployment at $DAYJOB
18:18 ranguard cheers
