19:58 nimdAHK is mikemol or another mod around?
19:58 mikemol ?
19:58 nimdAHK oh good
19:58 dzho next question? ;-)
19:59 * mikemol goes back to getting stuff done
19:59 nimdAHK need to replace every {{workswith|AutoHotkey_L}} with {{workswith|AutoHotkey 1.1+}}
19:59 mikemol heh
19:59 nimdAHK I could do it manually
19:59 mikemol nimdAHK: I suggest you script it.
19:59 mikemol It's not something I can automate.
20:00 nimdAHK if you want 100 RSS feed entries
20:00 mikemol (Well, I guess I could modify [[Template:workswith]], but that'd be a nasty hack.
20:00 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Template:workswith (Doesn't exist, try http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Special:Search/Template:workswith )
20:00 mikemol nimdAHK: To be expected, frankly.
20:00 nimdAHK well alrighty
20:00 nimdAHK AutoHotkey *is* an automation language
20:00 nimdAHK might as well write the automation in AHK then
20:00 mikemol Just keep the pace under control, and watch to make sure you don't step on anyone else's stuff. :)
20:01 nimdAHK what pace should I cap it at?
20:01 mikemol I'd probably keep it under five pages per minute.
20:01 nimdAHK can do
20:02 mikemol Edits are expensive; they require purging cache and pushing changes all the way to disk.
20:03 mikemol I could speed that up, but not without either sacrificing DB stability or getting RC onto its own hardware. Neither comes without unappealing costs.
20:04 nimdAHK is it possible to POST an edit without clicking "edit"?
20:05 mikemol Well, it's the post that's expensive.
20:05 nimdAHK I know
20:05 nimdAHK just wondering
20:05 mikemol But, yes. You can write your code to deal directly with index.php, or with api.php
20:05 nimdAHK ooh there's an api
20:06 mikemol I may need to add you to a special group to use it, but yeah.
20:06 mikemol index.php (the normal handler for users) is highly functional, too. api.php is simply another means of accessing the core functionality.
20:06 nimdAHK ah
20:06 mikemol https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Main_page
20:07 fedaykin "API:Main page - MediaWiki"
20:07 nimdAHK at 5 per minute though, I could run a whole Internet Explorer instance
20:07 mikemol I think that'd qualify as "an ugly hack"... :)
20:08 mikemol Plus, I'd rather your bot didn't show up in the Google Analytics data. ^^
20:08 nimdAHK where is api.php?
20:10 mikemol nimdAHK: Docs are at the link I provided
20:10 mikemol You can also talk directly to index.php. I don't care either way.
20:10 nimdAHK ./w/api.php returns 404
20:11 nimdAHK after redirecting to /mw/api.php
20:11 mikemol http://rosettacode.org/mw/api.php
20:11 fedaykin "MediaWiki API"
20:11 mikemol Don't kow why /w/api.php failed.
20:11 nimdAHK oh I see
20:11 nimdAHK it capitalizes it to Api.php first
20:12 nimdAHK before the redirect
20:12 mikemol http://rosettacode.org/w/api.php
20:12 fedaykin "MediaWiki API"
20:12 mikemol Did you go to http://rosettacode.org/wiki/w/api.php ?
20:12 fedaykin "W/api.php - Rosetta Code"
20:13 mikemol 'cause /wiki/$(anything) is going to ultimately be rewritten as /mw/index.php/$(anything)
20:13 mikemol Anyway, I've got to get back to work.
20:13 nimdAHK ok
20:14 nimdAHK no I went to org/w/api.php
20:14 mikemol huh
20:14 nimdAHK it capitalizes the A
20:14 nimdAHK before redirecting
20:14 mikemol Maybe an IE thing? Chromium didn't do that.
20:14 mikemol Dunno.
20:14 nimdAHK I'm running Chromium
20:14 nimdAHK lol
20:14 * mikemol has no idea
20:14 mikemol Anyway, it's getting critical I get back to work.
20:14 * nimdAHK gets out the HTTPQuery docs
20:14 nimdAHK see you
20:15 * mikemol hangs a 'do not disturb unless the server is catatonic' sign on his door.
20:15 * nimdAHK forgets to throttle his bot
20:24 * mikemol puts a temporary ban on nimdAHK's account for abusing services
