asciilifeform: verisimilitude: do you intend to make own ? how will it differ from traditional ?
asciilifeform must bbl. verisimilitude if you write at length on the subj, i'ma read when get the chance.
verisimilitude: I'm still muddy with some details, concerning the TCP library, but that's due to my more general being green to Ada; I should also note I want to design similiar libraries for Common Lisp, so I'm designing libraries to work roughly the same in both languages.
verisimilitude: Clearly, for TCP, the client should have little or no difference from the client of the file system.
verisimilitude: As for the server, I'd prefer a ``connection generator'' approach, where you have a server object which provides the means for different tasks to get bidirectional streams representing a single connection that they then handle independently.
verisimilitude: I could go into more detail, but I similarly have other things I could be doing, so it can wait.
shinohai: Reading #trilema logs yesterday got me thinking would be worthwhile to pick up where esthlos left off on his vtron (add diff function, etc) though now wonder if exercise in futility, since apparently this is nothing more than kindergarten Strafbataillon, and any discussion of subj merely fodder for asciilifeform to kek over with MP. http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-09-03#1933448

mats: taipei is amazing, had a five course meal at xiang duck for two, ~45usd
mats: equiv in sf or boston would be 200+, with mildly above average service, gratuity, and surly waitstaff
asciilifeform: mats: i had very similar experience on erry single trip out of usa to anywhere.
mats: the staff were so attentive it actually made me a little uncomfortable, noticed every single little detail - timely refills, removing plates, listening carefully, not bringing the check to the table until requested, not making me wait

shinohai: zncbot has taken up most of free time of late, I didn't exoect Summer to be so unseasonably warm here this late in September. Girls still want to drag me out here to lake or some odd place every day.
