23:08 < mdxi> one day. one day i will make something which will cause someone i know to go "Hey, that's cool. I could use that."
23:08 < mdxi> you dorks don't count.
23:09 <@rjbs> yeah, me too
23:09 < mdxi> as opposed to the usual "*blank stare*"
23:09 <@rjbs> heh
23:09 <@rjbs> someone just give you that?
23:14 < mdxi> rjbs: was telling K about egg
23:14 < mdxi> she was trememdously unimpressed
23:14 < mdxi> moreso than the usual, seemed to me
23:15 < ejp> frankly, I think I agree.
23:16 < ejp> I think you just enjoy creating markup languages a bit too much.
23:16 <@rjbs> heh
23:16 < mdxi> nah. this wasn't premeditated.
23:17 < mdxi> i needed something to do this one thing, though i made it flexible enough to handle more than *exactly* what I wanted
23:17 < mdxi> and i couldn't see a way to do it except a toy markup language
23:18 < mdxi> the only thing impressive about it, technically, is how BAD the code itself is
23:18 <@rjbs> heh
23:18 < mdxi> i mean, i could barely read it this afternoon after having just written most of it saturday night
23:19 < mdxi> but i was just like: isn't this a neat little thing i hacked out over the weekend?
23:19 < mdxi> and she's like "no"
23:19 < mdxi> fawk
23:19 <@rjbs> heh
23:20 < mdxi> i suppose it says something about my mind that i think the tradeoff of about 5 hours work for having autogenerated "last update" timestamps is a perfectly good one
23:20 < mdxi> because THAT was the actual point
23:21 < mdxi> i wanted to reduce my pile of pages into a single one which would always have up-to-date timestamps, build on-the-fly by my rsync wrapper script
23:21 < mdxi> the point was not recreating a subset of HTML
