08:07 id21 left #november-wiki
08:34 viklund PerlJam: It is fixed now

08:34 viklund @messages
08:34 zarah viklund: 10 h 35 m 22 s ago, masak said could you enable perlpilot in the november-wiki github project, please?
08:34 viklund @tell PerlJam: You can now commit ;)
08:34 zarah Consider it noted.
10:09 masak joined #november-wiki
10:12 masak @tell PerlJam you should now have a commit bit to november-wiki. remember to add yourself to the AUTHORS file. welcome aboard! ;)
10:12 zarah Consider it noted.
10:13 viklund masak: I already telled him...
10:14 masak OIC.
10:14 masak viklund: notice how irregular verbs, when used in a new sense, often become regular. 'told' -> 'telled'.
10:15 masak also, from baseball, IIRC, 'flew' -> 'flied'.
10:15 viklund masak: or, in swedish: 'spinnade'
10:15 masak indeed.
10:16 viklund a
10:16 viklund who's a?
10:16 viklund hmm
10:16 masak I dunno. who's a?
10:16 viklund my a's get bold
10:16 masak your problem :)
10:16 viklund has gotten*
10:17 masak no, 'have gotten'
10:17 masak ;)
10:18 masak viklund: I've discovered two devastating bugs just trying to implement basic MediaWiki parsing functionality.
10:24 viklund masak: so i've noted, on your blog
10:25 viklund I don't know if stacking workarounds is a good idea though
10:25 masak viklund: I know. I've got things working now, though.
10:26 masak viklund: it was more a question of my first workaround being a bit too hi-tech.
10:26 masak I used gather/take, should have used array/push.
10:29 viklund ahh
11:07 masak the newly discovered PGE behaviour (which basically disallows usage of strings returned from PGE) is very restrictive, sort of like a look-but-don't-touch visit to the garden of Eden would be.
11:07 masak you see all these wondroud things, but you're not allowed to use them.
11:09 masak s/oud/ous/
14:02 masak or in plain language, it sucks not to be able to use the full potential of the PGE-tied functions.
14:03 masak OTOH, it's fun to be battling against insurmountable bugs again :)
14:50 viklund ;)
14:55 masak "come, Sancho Panza, let's kill those ferocious giants!"
14:57 masak practical tip to all November developers: don't use the gather block. yet.
15:00 masak we could use a test harness in November. I will look at that in earnest tomorrow.
15:02 masak rakudo: say (1..20).pick(8, :repl).perl
15:02 p6eval rakudo 32610: OUTPUT[[17, 17, 20, 18, 18, 19, 8, 12]␤]
