irker318testing irker19:27
wpwrakkewl, so this should work19:27
DocScrutinizer05hmm?19:34
DocScrutinizer05oooh19:34
DocScrutinizer05well19:34
DocScrutinizer05feel free to use mi ZNC19:34
DocScrutinizer05my*19:35
larscwhat is he going to irk?19:40
wpwraki was trying to use the "irker" notification service of GitLab. for some reason it doesn't work. but if i run the daemon locally, all is well, as the above example illustrates19:43
DocScrutinizer05ooh19:45
DocScrutinizer05thought irker is a simple bouncer19:46
Action: DocScrutinizer05 kinda hates notification services19:47
DocScrutinizer05but.. well, up to you19:47
wpwraki like them :) they show activity also when everyone is busy coding, without time for idle chat :)19:48
wpwrakbut i would have asked for opinions, of course. but only after ensuring it actually works.19:48
DocScrutinizer05when everybody is busy coding, only those who *really* don't want to see notifications will watch them19:48
DocScrutinizer05I usually suggest to use dedicated irc channels for notifications, so everybody joining there is actually interested in them19:50
wpwrakwell, as we know from the advertisement industry, if someone doesn't like something, you just have to repeat it until they do (-:C19:50
DocScrutinizer05artificial activity == sort of noise19:50
DocScrutinizer05yeah, that works so well. I notice it each time I zapp to another TV channel19:50
DocScrutinizer05I actually have a long list of products I do NOT buy, ever, thanks to annoying ads19:52
DocScrutinizer05well, just me. nm19:52
DocScrutinizer05anyway for now I' happy each time the qi-hw tab in IRC turns green (new posts). This might change19:53
DocScrutinizer05or rather I'd put the irker on my ignore list I guess19:54
wpwrakwe already have notifications for many of the repos on qi-hw. so it wouldn't exactly be anything novel.19:54
DocScrutinizer05then I guess there already have to be some ignores19:55
DocScrutinizer05;-P19:55
wpwrak:)19:55
DocScrutinizer05I generally hate ignores19:56
DocScrutinizer05but well, just me. Again19:56
wpwrakdon't we live in a happy virtual world ? would be nice if problems could be solved so easily in the real world. something troubles you, just /ignore <trouble> and happiness is restored :)19:56
DocScrutinizer05well, it actually causes similar troubles long term in RL and in IRC19:58
DocScrutinizer05in neither of both it actually *solves* trouble19:58
DocScrutinizer05RL analogy would be to simply never watch news19:59
DocScrutinizer05any actually I can't find a notifier service except kernie on my /ignore20:00
DocScrutinizer05first problem20:01
DocScrutinizer05which of the ignores might be a notifier service20:01
DocScrutinizer05so I guess you're not interested in an ccount on my bouncer20:02
DocScrutinizer05might come in handy on your next connectivity curfew20:03
wpwrakfor now, i'll try to keep things simple :) but thanks for the offer !20:04
whitequarkthere's the logger, anyway20:22
DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: things stay as simple as they are, with a bouncer20:27
DocScrutinizer05you just swap irc.freenode.net for myserver.net:myport, and you change your server password to match the one on bouncer20:28
DocScrutinizer05the rest rather gets simpler, e.g. with sticky channels which open automatically when they were open when your irc client went south20:29
