13:01 * mikemol fumes
13:01 mikemol This is why assuming good faith is important. If you don't assume good faith, you generate bad blood, and you make resolution of things much more difficult.

13:34 eMBee what happened?
13:53 mikemol A bit up of a blowup surrounding the "PicoLisp by Example" book. There's more going on than has been discussed on the wiki, some steps had been taken which probably should have been put off, and now people are (justifiably) tetchy and more difficult to reason with.
13:59 mikemol I'm out of time, and RC's MW setup is treating my login cookies oddly and has locked me out for a bit.
14:00 mikemol But we need to create a task which builds a list of authors for task descriptions. An (imperative-style) algorithm that would do this is shown here: http://pastebin.com/W5NTbUCf
14:00 fedaykin "for each task page grab page source, discard everything after the first ==sec - Pastebin.com"
14:00 mikemol It would need to use the API described here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Index.php#Raw
14:00 mikemol and here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Index.php#History
14:01 mikemol If someone could whip up a task draft for me, I'd be very appreciative.
14:02 mikemol End goal is to produce an authorship specific to task descriptions, to deal with the remaining attribution issue for PicoLisp By Example (and for anyone else who wants to do anything similar)

15:25 Ledrug Is Mr. Circuit in?
15:32 eMBee he was more than an hour ago, but he mentioned something about being out of time
15:34 Ledrug Hey MB
15:34 Ledrug Too bad, I wanted to ask him about his thoughts on the copyright crap
15:39 eMBee actually he said something about that, check the chatlog
15:42 Ledrug I see.  Well, that may help somewhat.
15:49 * eMBee agrees

17:00 Gerard_Schildber I just found out that several of my postings to RC for the <pre style="height:30ex, ...>" were in error, that comma should've been a semicolon.   How can I find where these errors are?

20:40 kpreid as far as I know, there is no standard mediawiki facility that can do that
20:41 kpreid if you know a time interval over which you were making that mistake, you could go to "my contributions" and review the diffs
20:44 Gerard_Schildber No, I don't have a good estimate on the time period, there're just too many to go traisping through.   I was hoping there was some sort of secret way to find them with some special search or somethin'.
20:45 Gerard_Schildber I have been pretty prolific as of late.
