02:39 Tene dalek: owner?
02:40 Wolfman2000 probably masak
13:24 masak joined #november-wiki
13:24 masak o/
19:10 Tene hi masak
19:10 masak hi Tene
19:11 masak I'll see if I can get some Web.pm work done now. I feel close to being able to blog week 20.
19:12 masak I basically want to play a bit more with the pastebin app, and maybe write a bit more on the Web.pm spec and tutorial.
19:12 Wolfman2000 masak: which pastebin app?
19:12 Wolfman2000 There's mine and yours
19:13 masak Wolfman2000: the one written on top of Web.pm.
19:13 masak the one that does very little so far.
19:14 masak ah. here. http://use.perl.org/~masak/journal/39894
19:14 zarah masak's link is also http://tinyurl.com/y8gmljl
19:14 masak zarah: thank you.
19:14 zarah masak: no, YOU'RE the cute one! :)
19:14 masak aww :)
19:19 Wolfman2000 ah
19:19 Wolfman2000 your pastebin that allows viewing pastes
19:19 Wolfman2000 versus mine that allows all three, but still needs work for the other features.
19:22 masak yes. and is written in Perl 5. :)
19:22 Wolfman2000 masak: true, but this is only so we can at least have a Perl 6 pastebin.
19:22 masak yes, absolutely.
19:22 Wolfman2000 Once I improve test coverage and get login functionality working, it will be good enough to host on Feather.
19:23 masak but the context in which I mentioned it to Tene was the context of our ongoing Web.pm grant.
19:23 Wolfman2000 ...I may as well get something cleared up on the grants.
19:23 Wolfman2000 Do you get paid to work on Web.pm?
19:23 Tene Theoretically. ;)
19:23 * masak was just going to say that :)
19:24 Tene masak++
19:24 masak that's part of why I want to get week 20 down in blog form.
19:24 masak because after that, I feel in a position to resume talk about money.
19:24 Wolfman2000 then I won't stop you.
19:25 masak presently, I'm debugging GGE, though.
19:25 masak but I hope to give Web.pm some attention later tonight.
19:25 Tene masak: did you see that I got macros working in my scheme compiler?  I'm tempted to play with adding macros to ng.
19:25 masak ooh!
19:25 masak that is _very_ good news!
19:26 Tene I don't think we have any macros tests, though, so looks like I'm free to implement it however I like.
19:29 Tene macro 'teneisthebest' foo /.../ { ... }
19:30 masak :D
19:31 Wolfman2000 macros...what's the point of them exactly?
19:32 Tene Wolfman2000: you can't do control-structure-ish things with functions as conveniently as you might like.
19:34 masak Wolfman2000: macros are a convenient way to inject new language constructs into your code.
19:36 Wolfman2000 gotcha
