For the longest time, the WoT needs of #bitcoin-assets were well served by gribble. After the January spliti, things were left in somewhat of a lurch because without a graphical interface the mind can not workii, and so until Mike came out with his splendid explorer, there was a four month interval in which needed changes accumulated without being really manifested in the WoT (some were, the more important ones - but clearly not all).
Yesterday I finally did a bit of house cleaning, and coincidentally also yesterday the 2015 Lordship List revision was implemented. Consequently when btcalpha recalculated the WoT last night, there were some changes.
As you can see, Chtulhu emerges!———
- Which - for the record and from the horse's mouth - was not driven by any sort of animosity. It was the simple and perfectly predictable result of uncaught exceptions IRL, which is to say : nanotube went travelling, as people are wont to do around the New Year. He was not wearing his Internet tether, as people are wont to do around the New Year. He didn't make specific arrangements with us, because what the shit already, just how far into a person's rectum are the constructive obligations of having done something for others going to extend ? Meanwhile and unrelatedly, gribble went down. It rarely does, but hey, that time it did. As the situation dragged on for day after day (which from what I recall was never seen before), eventually the call was made to have it replaced, and once that call was made... it was going to be replaced. So it has.
I don't believe the guy was kidnapped by Lizard Hitler and replaced with a how-do-you-call-those-scary-bad-things-in-that-movie. I don't believe there's anything wrong with using gribble today, even if I personally rarely do. There have been discussions on the topic of bridging the two, which I think would be a great step forward for Bitcoin generally, because it achieves decentralization in a practically useful manner (muchly reminiscent of the gossipd design). I have no doubt it will eventually be done. [↩]
- I really can't think about WoTs without looking at graphs and without clickable lists. Yes, I'm aware I'm the same guy who said
[Visually minded] which is another way of saying uneducated louts, in the hebrew tradition of symbolic representation, because only uneducated louts would be unable to process data "in their head" upon hearing it described and would require visual aids. The coincidence that this'd perforce include most women doesn't obviously bother the hebrew tradition in the least.
I won't say "so bite me!", I will just continue quoting instead :
And since we're on the topic, note the "he may be called" at the beginning of the paragraph, too. It is unintentional, of course.
So byte me! [↩]
