asciilifeform: seems like 'respectable academics'(tm)(r) will put up with just about any diameter of spiked anal road cone tho, considering that they put up with 'pay elsevier page fees and in exchange they own 100% rights to errything you printed' etc
asciilifeform: when patient dun seem to even blink from cone insertion , the natural response is to give him bigger cone. i fully expect the process will continue in this vein
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in argentine lulz : asciilifeform notices rubber leg from lappy loose on desk. thinks 'could've sworn i glued this one last mo'. grabs tube of cyanoacrylate, same as with which. then notices 'industria argentina' on tube, turns out it's the 1 bought in BingoBoingostan! i had nfi it was physically possible to fuck up even ~this~...
billymg: the patch removes tinymce, most of the importers, and some unused plugins -- overall reduction of about 15% in lines of code and close to 20% in size on disk (since some of the files removed were minified files containing only one line)
billymg: will put together a post about it too but i'll have to get to that later this week

asciilifeform: also produces gargantuan patches if you simply move routines , this is a perennial headache to asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: who was talking to networks besides mod6 btw ? did undernet say anything ?
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2019-03-25#1904673 << asciilifeform several times tried his hand at 'what if nonclassical diff', these are in the logs. but mircea_popescu barfed, and i dun even disagree, thus far nobody's thought of a moar human-readable diffism than the traditional one
a111: Logged on 2019-03-25 14:38 mircea_popescu: i'd like this narrowed if not entirely solved.
asciilifeform: ( e.g. say you want to compactly represent moves of blocks of text. nao you need... a stack ? etc )
asciilifeform: re diffs -- it ~is~ possible to make a 'any small change WILL result in a small diffism' diff algo. but, i suspect , not possible to make it naked-eye readable. and, conversely, naked-eye readable diff is , i suspect, necessarily ~same as the classical.
hanbot: mircea_popescu, so wait, are you saying that the "black people & crime" thing is purely an internal debate of socialism, pitting the pantsuit against the [http://btcbase.org/log/2017-09-30#1718541][more progressive] TS faction in the attempt to establish "which parts of ideal socialism relate to me more"?
a111: Logged on 2017-09-30 00:40 mircea_popescu: in a sense, the "fascists" are more progressive than the "progressive"
mircea_popescu: moreover, check out the similar pattern of reaction to alterity : someone's unimpressed with this "marx" symbol ? must be immaturity! because the only 0-cost explanation of difference would be... "the different hasn't yet matured into us". anything else, profoundly threatening to the narc^Hsocialist.
hanbot: and here i'd've thought self-explanation, assembly, noisemaking etc carried *some* cost.
mircea_popescu: socialist accounting of costs is a thing of wonder. obviously no such thing as 0-cost exists in nature, but they're ideal sorta folk.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, even IF in fact whitespace is meaningful, i still want the lines interlaced rather than chunked blocks i have to scroll up and down for.
asciilifeform: aha. would require a sub-line difftron tho, as i understand.
mircea_popescu: i can't readily say what it is i actually want algorithmically, which is why i'm not even certain it can be had. but the scrolling hurts my precious inner child.
mircea_popescu: hanbot, it's not even coincidental that the pantsuit used "ts" as in trans-sexualism to liberate themselves from the traditional ("reds") socialist mindset and erupt like puss from a scab.
mircea_popescu: because, specifically, reds have a lot more trouble dealing with alterity than blues. the blue has little trouble with alterity because they're mostly mentally retarded, no strong notions of self.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i suspect that to guarantee pleasant-to-read diff, one has to specifically write proggy in certain style, and that the problem aint otherwise solvable in the general case
mircea_popescu: in a sense, the children have taken over the insane asylum -- to anyone outside they make just as good mental patients as the older ones ; but inside they move quicker and are more vivacious, which are natural advantages.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, this may even be, but i'd rather unearth the style than not.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: who are in this context 'reds' and 'blues' ? ( presumably not the 2 usg armies mircea_popescu earlier argued have long ago merged into 1 ? )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform, well, in immediate context, the fellow from yest, preoccupied with "violent crime". in general, "republicans" up to 1980s or so.
mircea_popescu: but yes, the scab cracked ~synchronously with $america-ended
mircea_popescu: the guys to whom assange attempted to leak, basically. the "public opinion", whatever.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the 'preoccupation with crimes' also comes in diff. variants. consider e.g. lafonde, vs the typical ameri-suburbanite who has never so much as personally seen a homo-lafondicus with naked eye but nevertheless fixated , etc
mircea_popescu: how do you say "burghezo-mosieresc" in ru ? term as in "Despre politica externă antinațională a guvernelor burghezo-moșierești din România, în timpul politicii imperialiste de așa-zisă 'neintervenție' "
mircea_popescu: that was lenin's identification of the reds in his own party.
