[15:17:28] <Bronzdragon> Hello NSAbot
[15:17:48] <apreche> i really wish there was some way to get it to reconnect when it gets disconnected
[15:18:12] <Bronzdragon> Can't you write a script that automatically tries to reconnect?
[15:19:10] <apreche> that's too much work
[15:19:13] <apreche> only because I don't know enough about IRC
[15:19:58] <yoshokatana> ^
[15:20:07] <yoshokatana> irc is weird
[15:20:14] <Bronzdragon> Eh, not really.
[15:20:43] <yoshokatana> ok
[15:20:59] <yoshokatana> irc is weird *enough* that it takes non-zero effort to figure out how to do that
[15:21:11] <Bronzdragon> Ok.
[16:09:46] <apreche> well, I can send someone the script I'm using now if they want to add that feature
[16:09:50] <apreche> I can make a Gist or something
[16:23:14] <Bronzdragon> apreche: I'll try
[16:24:19] <apreche> https://github.com
[16:24:23] <apreche> that's the FRCBot
[16:24:54] <Bronzdragon> k
[16:52:35] <yoshokatana> neat
[16:52:51] <yoshokatana> is there a list of things frcbot does?
[16:52:52] <yoshokatana> !list
[16:53:03] <apreche> all he does is log what we say into HTML files
[16:53:07] <apreche> which ar estatically served.
[16:53:19] <yoshokatana> oh
[16:53:36] <apreche> but there are gaps when it gets disconnected
[16:58:12] <yoshokatana> makes sense
[18:13:28] <GauntletWizard> apreche: Run two copies, merge the lines
[18:13:45] <GauntletWizard> locate the other copy in a different datacenter for redundancy
[18:45:49] <Apsup> People have been talking while I've been away. Unacceptable!
[19:02:19] <apreche> yeah, no
[19:03:15] <yoshokatana> hm?
[19:03:25] <apreche> to the redundancy idea
[19:03:39] <yoshokatana> I’m arguing about the merits of fizzbuzzing people on egyptian multiplication in coding interviews
[19:03:48] <yoshokatana> (spoiler: it’s dumb and you shouldn’t do it)
[19:03:56] <apreche> that's fine, as long as I can google egyptian multiplication first
[19:05:55] <yoshokatana> basically, yeah
[19:06:09] <yoshokatana> it’s a gotcha question disguised as a bitshifting question
[19:06:26] <apreche> oh, gotchas aren't good
[19:08:30] <yoshokatana> yeah
