02:12 mwn3d_phone Updated to java 7. My optimized pythagorean triples program ran a little faster (around 10%). I like this strings in switch stuff.
02:12 mwn3d_phone Multicatch for exceptions is nice
02:13 mwn3d_phone The "diamond operator" is just to save space
02:13 mwn3d_phone But it doesn't hurt anything
02:19 kpreid joined #rosettacode
02:19 mwn3d_phone I watched a video on the fork/join framework they added
02:19 mwn3d_phone That's something I'll have to take a while to wrap my head around
02:19 mwn3d_phone Especially because "fork" and "join" aren't actually part of using it

15:44 Deltree[RCo] joined #rosettacode
15:44 Deltree[RCo] hmm
15:45 Deltree[RCo] I kinda expected more people
15:49 mikemol Deltree[RCo]: Heh. IRC isn't the most popular communications medium for RC folks.
15:50 mikemol Deltree[RCo]: Although this is where I do most of *my* RC-related communications.
15:52 mwn3d_phone You can usually get a response from people here but sometimes it takes a while. Its a little bit better than talk pages for some situations though.
15:52 Deltree[RCo] well, good to know this is here, I'm going to get off for now so that work doesn't see it
15:52 Deltree[RCo] thanks everyone
15:52 mikemol It'd be nice if we could set up a "catbox" portlet on the wiki, tied to an XMPP MUC, with a MUC-IRC bridge bot in here.
15:52 mwn3d_phone Like when markhobley had some redirect problems. It was easier for him to explain it here since it required a little more back-and-forth
15:52 * mikemol waves

15:54 mikemol Maybe I'll write that extension at some point. Until then, I'm working on a new MW extension for handling text link sales directly.
15:55 mwn3d_phone mikemol: how much do you expect to get from that?
15:56 mikemol mwn3d_phone: Don't know. More than nothing. Probably more than TextLinkAds got me, in the long-term.
15:56 mikemol Here's how it'll work: http://pastebin.com/uJCvDJCi
15:56 fedaykin "First, I'm going to try one more ad provider. If they work out, great. If not, h - Pastebin.com"
15:56 mikemol Since I can't reasonably define a price, I'll let a bidding system handle it.
16:01 mikemol So, essentially, you could say, "I want five days, and I'll pay $5/day". It'll run you for five days, at $5/day. Unless someone is willing to pay more than $5/day for one of those days. In that event, if your ad is bumped, you'll get a refund, or that 'day' will be spent afterward; you'll get your paid value one way or another.
16:02 mikemol This allows someone to come in and pay $1 for a year's placement, but also allow someone to pay $1 for a particular day, and get priority.
16:03 mikemol Meanwhile, the guy who paid $1 for a year can take that (1/365) dollars and either get a refund, or have his campaign last a day longer.
16:04 mikemol I'm hoping the priority system works particularly well for timely links, such as conference advertising.
16:04 mikemol And I don't have to figure out what the links are worth; they're worth what people pay for them. And as long as people pay for them, I get *something*.
16:22 kpreid joined #rosettacode
16:50 mwn3d_phone Make sure there's a way to filter out links to bad sites too
16:50 mwn3d_phone We don't need to be part of spreading viruses or child porn (or child porn with viruses)
16:51 Mathnerd314 joined #rosettacode
16:51 * mikemol nods
16:52 mikemol It'd have to go through a simple approval process.
