        this is a fun way to play around with systems thinking:

          I imagine the majority of Tildos don’t need to delete Chrome because, if we even have it installed, it’s only to test compatibility.

            TLDR: you suddenly need to delete it because it’s the same as it has ever been.

              git is, especially if you use git send-mail. but 99% of git users don’t know about git send-email or how to use it: they use pull requests on a web front-end like github or gitea.

              git forges are not, and that’s what we’re talking about here. I’m quasi active on 3 different gitea instances. It would be amazing to be able to log issues and submit pull requests across gitea instances without having to create a new account for each instance.

                  Isn’t git already dsitrubuted?

                    I set this to 3 seconds so I have time to hit ctrl-c. For example, on some systems git isn’t on an up to date version so the restore command is not available, it sometimes auto-corrects to reset which can have bad effects compared to restore so I have time to quit and fix my command.

                      Looks like a nice alternative for jq for simpler cases (but not limited to JSON), thanks!

                        i just fired up dosbox the other night and installed Windows 3.1 from archive.org to play an old shareware game

                          Maybe it’s just me, but this feels like a lot more of a pain than just using an awk or sed one-liner (or even the chains of cuts and heads and greps the post author seems to think are the only existing option) to parse some arbitrary text. This is a solution that fully structures semi-structured output from certain commands into JSON. I’m not convinced that learning the exact hierarchies it parses any given command’s output into is worth it. You’re already looking at a nightmare if you put this into a script and release it – the thread for this post on HN has a bit where someone was unable to get it to work, and the author says it’s because their locale isn’t set to en_US.utf8, as the parser is expecting.

                          Semi-structured output is semi-structured, the only reason this program even works is because it’s trivial to parse the outputs of UNIX commands as text and get the desired information. So why not just do that, especially since you’ll still have to do that when interacting with anything other than the set of built-in commands understood by this program.

                            As a Gitea (through tildegit.org) user, I’d love this to happen!

                                I’ve long been an opponent of rebase. I’m happy to see fossil take a stand while more eloquently arguing the point than I can.

                                  This looks interesting. I’m going to have to try it some time

                                    This is beautifully crazy.

                                      excellent stuff, had never considered the parallel compiling opportunities of concatenative languages.

                                      and the swim lane diagrams are the best visual description of forth/postfix programming i’ve ever seen. really get to see the need/effects for all the little stack manipulation words in a new, clear way.

                                          i’ve noticed a couple of tildes in the tildeverse make use of the finger protocol. going to fill out my .project and .plan files on tildetown soon.

                                          wikipedia’s entry on Finger has a big [citation needed] by the section “Security Concerns.” it says the finger protocol made social engineering easy by giving access to employee names and phone numbers. with most companies having a presence on linkedin now, isn’t this point moot? are there other security concerns to be aware of?
