17:03 codiferous joined #opentreeoflife
17:03 towodo jimallman, what am i doing wrong? can’t figure out how to get in, again.
17:03 jimallman re: pie, it’s just something from the logs that i think makes a great IRC greeting: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/opentreeoflife/2014-07-03#i_8969181
17:04 jimallman towodo: get into the site, you mean? what URL are you trying?
17:04 towodo I mean I can’t figure out how to get into the hangout.
17:05 towodo jimallman, no, I mean the hangout. wasn’t it supposed to be 1:00?
17:05 jimallman ah, i think you need to start/create it, yes? i was just standing by for an invite.
17:05 towodo I thought I did.
17:05 codiferous i got an invite ti the event, but not one to an actual hangout
17:06 jimallman same here… i’m trying to create a new one now, with same invitees
17:07 towodo argh.  am instead of pm
18:50 towodo joined #opentreeoflife
19:21 towodo jimallman, I want to name the directories in deployed-systems sequentially, not ‘production’ and ‘development’ (or ‘staging’)
19:22 towodo so I need a series of names.  could use v1, v2, … but that’s dull
19:22 towodo debian uses toy story characters…
19:22 towodo apple uses species of cats…
19:23 towodo back in 1982 when I had to name a lot of machines I used ungulate names…
19:51 * jimallman is just back from lunch
19:52 jimallman towodo: so the notion is sequential names, where dev/staging/production are essentially moving targets? i’m OK with that.
19:53 towodo names in the dev-res repo are stable.  dns names move
19:53 jimallman agreed that v2 is boring. alphabetical names are helpful as a mnemonic to get the sequence right.
19:53 towodo look at taxonomy file.  going to try sorting by length
19:53 jimallman re: dns (domain) names move.
19:53 jimallman got it
19:56 jimallman maybe the lineage from the Ancestor’s Tale? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ancestor's_Tale
19:56 towodo or that borges taxonomy
19:56 jimallman hm, looks like 39 steps, so maybe not.
19:57 jimallman ah, i love the borges taxonomy, but it’s wordy....
19:57 jimallman “Those drawn with a very fine camel hair brush”
19:58 jimallman more importantly, it’s kind of short. i suppose we could start with Borges, then move on to Ancestor’s Tale, then something else...
19:58 towodo I’m thinking how about names in OTT, like atta, eciton, …
19:59 towodo need to learn how to sort in python, i thnk i’ve done it before
19:59 towodo bos
19:59 jimallman here’s a larger collection from Borges, very nice!
19:59 jimallman http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Imaginary_Beings
20:01 jimallman re: python sorting, lots of common idioms here: https://wiki.python.org/moin/HowTo/Sorting
20:01 towodo I found an example of my own using grep.
20:02 towodo will rename ‘production’ to the first one, and create a second dir using second name
20:40 towodo joined #opentreeoflife
20:40 towodo internet went away for a bit
20:40 towodo two-letter genera: Aa Ca Ge Ia Io La Le Zu
21:08 jimallman hm, kinda cryptic, but OK.
22:13 towodo how about 3-letter ones? Age Aha Aix Aka Ala Ami Anu Aoa Aon Ara Are Bak Bia Boa Bos Car Cea
22:13 towodo Cis Cyx Dic Doa Ebo Ega Ego Ela Ena Eoa Eos Ero Eua Eva Ezo Fax Fer
22:13 towodo Foa Fur Gea Hea Hoa Hua Hya Iba Ija Ima Ioa Ipa Ipo Ips Ira Isa Iso
