11:56 mikemol Ugh
11:56 mikemol RC is developing something of an 'old guard'
11:56 mikemol By which I mean, people who say "this is what RC is for" because that's all they've ever seen it do.
12:21 mwn3d_phone mikemol: any particular discussion you're referring to or has this been brewing in you for a while (or probably both)?
12:21 mikemol both. :)
12:22 mikemol I try not to speak up unless I see something brewing for a while. :)

12:26 mwn3d_phone You yourself could always change and be more forceful. You don't have to keep working the same way just like the site doesn't have to keep working the same way.
12:27 mikemol I don't have time to be more forceful.
12:27 mikemol Not right now, anyway.
12:29 mikemol I have to operate on an 'enabler' basis. If someone wants to do something they think is interesting, I want to keep it possible for them to do it. "Old guard" philosophies tend to discourage that.
12:30 mwn3d_phone From that little discussion paddy seems to be right on making sure the run times are found under fair and equal conditions. I guess you're opposed to the very end of it though.
12:31 mwn3d_phone Or (just as likely and not necessarily mutually exclusive) I'm just part of the old guard
12:32 mwn3d_phone I think I usually agree with most of what paddy says but we probably can get kinda pushy
12:35 mikemol I didn't even see what Paddy was responding to. I've been on the road or in Atlanta all weekend.
12:35 mikemol I saw "RC isn't for..." on a newbie user, and found a button pushed.
12:38 mwn3d_phone I think the user was adding run times to only one language's examples with no mention of setup
12:38 mikemol Yeah, that'd be a problem.
12:38 mikemol Think I jumped the gun.
12:39 mwn3d_phone Heh the only way I've thought of to at least get people thinking about how they act on the site is setting up my "personal policies" page and the like
12:39 mwn3d_phone Not sure if it's affected anyone but at least I can say I put up my vote publicly
12:39 mikemol I've seen your page for that...and, IIRC, I disagree with some of the stuff on there. But I don't have time for a good debate. :)
12:40 mikemol doh
12:40 mikemol Not knowing the context of what Paddy was responding to, I misinterpreted the word 'runtime'.
12:41 mikemol I was thinking "run-time support library which a compiler adds calls out to" or some such.
12:45 mwn3d_phone Heh I've done stuff like that lots of times
