18:04 ingy patch: I'm adding HAS and OK support
18:05 ingy I think they can be polymorphic
18:05 ingy to LIST and ITEM context
18:06 ingy but I need to add support for those states
18:06 ingy basically the first argument to a transform function is a Context object
18:07 ingy I think the context object should have a 'type' or at least a 'kind' attribute
18:08 ingy where kind == list or scalar
18:18 ingy lost net... back
18:37 ingy back
18:37 ingy again
18:37 ingy grrr
20:21 patch ingy: i just noticed your q from yesterday about blogging in esperanto
20:21 patch i don't really blog in any language :)
20:22 ingy patch: I want to sell you on my xlog idea
20:23 patch i started tweeting in esperanto but that didn't last
20:23 patch http://twitter.com/nikolao
20:23 patch ...for more than a few tweets!
20:25 patch ingy: i'd like to hear about xlog sometime
20:27 ingy patch: it's an extension of my cogbase thinking
20:28 ingy which is that all the data in your head needs to be put into repurposable objects
20:28 ingy say you have some thought about acmeism
20:29 ingy you write a paragraph about it
20:29 ingy maybe that's an xlog post
20:29 ingy but can also be used in some documentation somewhere
20:29 ingy everything you write (including code) should be repurposable and addressable from everywhere
20:30 ingy and totally DRY
20:33 patch oh, i don't think you want repurpose *all* the data in my head ;)
20:33 ingy hahah
20:33 ingy a
20:36 patch ingy: you should dump all the data in your head into xlog, convert it into vroom via stardoc, and present it as a lightning talk
20:38 ingy :P
20:38 ingy in Lojban
20:39 ingy anyway, xlog is really cool and simple
20:39 ingy but it requires some minimal cogbase functionality
20:40 patch cool, let's talk more about it sometime
20:40 ingy I'm hoping to have it before Boston...
20:40 ingy sure
22:35 ingy I added HAS OK and Not support to p5
22:35 ingy with tests in testml-tml repo
22:35 ingy patch: ^^
22:38 patch ingy++
