[edit] Some Concerns

This discussion was moved to RW:BAR.

[edit] So testing my ideas for fixing wigo for 1.27

Was your suggestion that I build a mediawiki install somewhere, drop the wigo code on it, and monkey with things until it worked? I've got a linode available for that, but I want to make sure I'm doing the right test case before I dump a good 20 hours getting it all configured right and trying desperately to hook it into my postgres server when everything's built for mysql. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 17:54, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Definitely assume MySQL/MariaDB - David Gerard (talk) 18:05, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
I may need to spin up a whole new server to do this. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 22:55, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
fun, isn't it! The database alone requires a buttload of disk, and InnoDB throws away disk space like water. I might do a latest-rev dump as well - David Gerard (talk) 22:58, 6 March 2017 (UTC) - 100MB of latest revs only - David Gerard (talk) 00:25, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
My plan was just a vanilla install with our extensions to do the testing. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 02:22, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
Have you got a patched WIGO extension as yet? I have a 1.26 test installation of RW that it would be good to test on - David Gerard (talk) 13:44, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Oh, no, I've been a horrible slacker because setting up the install was a daunting task. Sorry. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 15:43, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Hello David

So, how is your book coming along? :) Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:00, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

fuuuucking slowly. Basically it's always easier to lie on the floor making seal noises than work on it. Dragging it on though!! - David Gerard (talk) 13:04, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Hah! Yeah, I hear you. Well, If you ever find yourself needing to toss someone a draft or portion of the text to proofread, I'd gladly check it out.
Oh, and by the way, I noticed that atleast one random site links to here — which is a dead link.
Dunno if it's even for us to deal with — more seal noises are fine too. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:19, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
yeah, rationalblogs is down because it's currently pointed nowhere at all and Trent is AWOL - David Gerard (talk) 13:19, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
