01:12 nimdAHK joined #rosettacode
01:12 nimdAHK I can't access any pages
01:12 mikemol nimdAHK: Fixed
01:12 Guest33153 oh, magically fixed
01:13 mikemol Not exactly magically.

01:13 mikemol I'm trying to set up another site on the same server, and, amazingly, I somehow borked the squid configuration.
01:13 nimdAHK huh.
01:13 nimdAHK It seemed pretty magic to me >_>
01:14 nimdAHK Broken! "It's broken!" Fixed!
01:14 mikemol Are you sure it wasn't just a transient error? ;P
01:15 * mikemol muses that it'd be slick to get the webchat widget into the squid error page.
01:16 sorear nimdAHK: ...are you trying to use a cloak with webchat?
01:16 nimdAHK lol no
01:16 nimdAHK :P
01:16 nimdAHK but freenode is
01:16 nimdAHK my client is on my flash drive
01:16 nimdAHK which I cunningly left at home
01:17 sorear wondering what unaffiliated/crazyfirex was
01:17 nimdAHK that's my mask :P
01:18 sorear they're called cloaks, not masks, at least in the FAQ
01:18 nimdAHK I'm well aware of the crap that occurs with webchat's cloak overriding mine.
01:18 nimdAHK normally I use KVIrc or PChat -- they're both on my flash drive
01:18 * nimdAHK facepalms
01:29 mikemol And broken again.
01:29 mikemol Trying a different tact toward fixing it.
01:29 mikemol *tack
01:29 mikemol And that worked.
01:30 mikemol Apparently, reloading squid's configuration is a really bad idea.
01:30 mikemol You need to restart squid.
01:37 mikemol Down again. On it.
01:38 nimdAHK lol
01:39 mikemol It'll go down once or twice more; count on it. Once I get squid behaving properly, I won't need to touch it again while I work on this other stuff.
01:40 mikemol Behold...
01:40 mikemol Actually, ideally, not...
01:41 nimdAHK there it went
01:41 nimdAHK I was about to read the talk on Odd word problem
01:42 mikemol Try again? squid didn't throw me any errors, and neither did my www session.
01:43 nimdAHK ewwww
01:44 nimdAHK Odd word problem has so many unconventional restrictions it's ridiculous
01:45 mikemol Leave a note in the talk page.
01:45 mikemol They'll hash it out with you, until someone gets to a solution. Either the task will get modded, or a new task is created.
01:46 nimdAHK it's worse than that one about icon... I can't find it
01:46 nimdAHK it was originally given to Icon students...
01:46 nimdAHK hmmm
01:47 nimdAHK AHA!
01:47 nimdAHK http://rosettacode.org/wik​i/Longest_string_challenge
01:47 fedaykin "Longest string challenge - Rosetta Code" http://rldn.net/Aef
01:48 nimdAHK Oh, mikemol, there's a huge bug in the AHK syntax highlighting
01:48 nimdAHK where do I submit bugs?
01:49 mikemol You'd want to chat with BenBE.
01:49 mikemol Who's not in here right now. Hm.
01:49 mikemol Looks like he's offline.
01:50 nimdAHK Any #Directive links to #WinActivateForce
01:50 nimdAHK f.ex http://rosettacode.org/wik​i/24_game/Solve#AutoHotkey
01:50 nimdAHK see the #NoEnv
01:50 nimdAHK it should link to http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_NoEnv.htm
01:50 fedaykin "#NoEnv" http://rldn.net/6wy
01:50 nimdAHK but instead it links to http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/​commands/_WinActivateForce.htm
01:50 fedaykin "#WinActivateForce" http://rldn.net/UVQZ
01:51 mikemol Looks like Naveen Garg has been the lead guy pushing ahk highlighting for GeSHi.
01:51 nimdAHK oh, that's tinku99
01:52 mikemol I haven't heard from him since 7/7/09, looks like.
01:52 nimdAHK he and Uberi were the ones to bring syntax highlighting to GitHub as well
01:52 mikemol RC uses GeSHi. BenBE updates RC's implementation of GeSHi directly.
01:52 nimdAHK he posted in the AHK forum 10 days ago, so there's hope
01:53 nimdAHK should I contact him or BenBE?
01:53 mikemol Benny will want someone to send him an updated autohotkey.php file after it's been run through the sanity-check script.
01:54 mikemol nimdAHK: No reason you can't do it. Grab GeSHi's latest sources, find autohotkey.php, fix that, send the updated form to BenBE.
01:54 mikemol The file format is pretty simple, so it should be reasonably easy to fix.
01:54 nimdAHK well there is the fact that I don't know php :P
01:54 nimdAHK is GeSHi on GitHub?
01:55 nimdAHK sourceforge
01:56 nimdAHK pourquoi est SourceForge en francais? :P
01:56 nimdAHK it always tells me about "votre telechargement"
01:56 mikemol nimdAHK: Really, the way GeSHi langfiles are normally constructed, they could conceivably be replaced with something like JSON.
01:57 mikemol I *think* I understand what you're saying. I know J better than I know French...
01:57 nimdAHK O_O
01:57 nimdAHK I have J installed, but that's about it
01:57 mikemol http://qbnz.com/highlighter/
01:57 fedaykin "GeSHi - Generic Syntax Highlighter :: Home"
01:58 nimdAHK I got the .tar.gz
01:58 nimdAHK autohotkey.php...
01:58 nimdAHK found the #Directives list...
01:59 nimdAHK 5 => array(   // #Directives
02:01 nimdAHK in the URLs array it's listed as "5 => 'http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_{FNAME}.htm',"
02:01 nimdAHK which seems correct to me...
02:01 mikemol So that might be a bug in the GeSHi core, rather than in the language-specific code.
02:02 mikemol You'll want to prod BenBE. I imagine he's out for the holidays.
02:02 nimdAHK could it have something to do with the undersocre?
02:02 nimdAHK because the commands link fine
02:02 nimdAHK and they are "3 => 'http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/{FNAME}.htm',"
02:02 mikemol Perhaps.
02:03 mikemol The _ might be tweaking PCRE the wrong way.
02:03 nimdAHK I don't see an entry for 5 in the RegExp's
02:04 mikemol hm
02:04 * mikemol looks at the code himself
02:04 nimdAHK only 0 through 3
02:05 nimdAHK in fact, I have no idea how it recognizes them O_O
02:06 mikemol Keyword matching, I expect.
02:06 nimdAHK oh, duh
02:06 nimdAHK hrm
02:06 nimdAHK very strange how it doesn't work...
02:07 * mikemol grumbles
02:07 nimdAHK all I can see is that underscore
02:07 nimdAHK notice how WinActivateForce is the *last* element of the array
02:07 mikemol This particular instance of Firefox 8 on XFCE doesn't have a refresh button, and XFCE captures Ctrl-Fkeys for workspace switching.
02:08 nimdAHK ctrl+r?
02:08 mikemol nimdAHK: I'm thinking it's likely a GeSHi core bug.
02:08 mikemol Heh. I'd forgotten about Ctrl-r.
02:08 nimdAHK I don't have PHP installed, so I can't run a debugger
02:08 mikemol I don't think I've used that shortcut since a bunch of us in computer camp opened a friend's CGI hit counter and held it down...
02:09 mikemol I don't have a way to attach a debugger to RC's PHP.
02:09 mikemol I've got other things I need to poke at before I fall asleep, too.
02:09 mikemol Frelling exhausting past couple of days.
02:14 nimdAHK g2g

10:43 eMBee Bbsingapore's work needs to be moderated. he is adding mathematica solutions in random places and deleting the old solution in the process.
10:43 eMBee it seems that he/she does not understand how to add a solution in the right place
10:48 eMBee quite messy
11:58 GlitchMr Sadly...
