schestowitz__one more shift for me, than I'm off work (3rd night today, finishing soon)Mar 01 08:08
schestowitz__*thenMar 01 08:08
schestowitz__I wonder if latest articles should be at the top of the front page. Surely IRC logs are not more important than that.Mar 01 08:15
Techrights-secthe gemini page seems to havce updated okMar 01 08:16
Techrights-secthough the 'latest articles' part only does the last calendar days,Mar 01 08:16
Techrights-secperhaps that needsto get re-written to actually include the latestMar 01 08:16
Techrights-secit likely means replacing the shell script with perl thoughMar 01 08:16
Techrights-secthe current shell script is simple: check the date and getMar 01 08:16
Techrights-secthe gemini pages for today and yesterday, if there are anyMar 01 08:16
Techrights-seca replacement script would need to search and then reportMar 01 08:16
Techrights-secthe most recent two days of those actually availableMar 01 08:16
Techrights-secI think the articles would be best at the top.  I'll adjust the script.Mar 01 08:19
schestowitz__thanks!Mar 01 08:19
Techrights-secAlso the script generates a placeholder for March though there have not yetMar 01 08:20
Techrights-secbeen any gemini articles -- yetMar 01 08:20
Techrights-secno problemMar 01 08:20
schestowitz__Yes, I noticed that and was about to bring it upMar 01 08:20

Techrights-secyes, but now that there is a way to access the db directly, Mar 01 09:12
Techrights-secthere may be a more efficient way.  I'll plan a bit and see if I canMar 01 09:12
Techrights-secthink of a better way than just growing things out organicallyMar 01 09:12
Techrights-secwe'll have to re-check the bulletins in gemini tomorrowMar 01 09:12
Techrights-secas for leap years, the date utility and the relevant perl modules have thatMar 01 09:12

schestowitz__I've just noticed that all March archives in Gemini except articles show up emptyMar 01 13:08
schestowitz__which is likely correctMar 01 13:08
schestowitz__But in the case of bulletins it says IRC logsMar 01 13:09
schestowitz__Oh, actually is says that at the top of indexes of prior months of bulletins too, so nothing new in terms of thatMar 01 13:11
Techrights-secI'll checkMar 01 13:12

schestowitz__"Mar 01 17:18
schestowitz__I admit I have not read the decision, and perhaps I am not quite grasping the point, but I don't see that there's anything surprising in this. It's well-established that the patent can be its own dictionary, so if the second patent provided a more limited definition of 'incorporating' then it seems fair to construe 'incorporating' in line with the patent's definition and to assume that the patentee meant to use this definition Mar 01 17:18
schestowitz__when using the term. If they didn't want to be limited to their own definition of 'incorporating' then they could/should have used a different term in the claims. Mar 01 17:18
schestowitz__To go back to Actavis, presumably if the description had explicitly said "The term 'sodium' should be understood to mean 'sodium'" then the decision could have gone the other way. Of course, this would have been a strange definition to include at the time, but only because no one prior to Actavis would have thought that sodium might ever be construed to cover potassium.Mar 01 17:18
schestowitz__"Mar 01 17:18
schestowitz__Regarding the aforementioned issue with bulletins, the fix was simple and I've tested it. Turned out it was prepending the menu for irc instead of bulletin template. Should we at some point let people download 'catalogues' of months or years? Gemini is no good for big files...Mar 01 17:37
Techrights-secok, I've updated Git with the changes to                                                         Mar 01 19:57
Techrights-secYeah, the big files should be in IPFS and HTTP(S) only.Mar 01 19:57
Techrights-secPerhap just an external link will do.Mar 01 19:57
schestowitz__the video files we have are not just large but very large. Maybe at some point we can integrate ipfs and gemini with existing bridging software (sourcehut).Mar 01 19:58
