geniipastebinit is <reply> pastebinit is an Ubuntu package which is the command-line equivelent of !pastebin . Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which will then report an URL which contains the output. From command-line it may be installed with: sudo apt-get install pastebinit or: sudo aptitude install pastebinit .Simple usage: command-name | pastebinit   or:  textfile-name > pastebinit00:18
geniiy/n ?00:19
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about pastebinit00:20
Seeker`!info pastebinit00:20
ubottupastebinit (source: pastebinit): command-line pastebin client. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.11.2-0ubuntu1 (jaunty), package size 21 kB, installed size 344 kB00:20
geniiSeeker`: I could maybe shorten it a bit.00:22
FlannelWhy do you need to give both apt-get and aptitude to install? that seems silly00:22
Seeker`how about something like "automatically pastebins command output, or any other text and returns a URL. For example: command-name | pastebinit or: textfile-name > pastebinit00:22
Seeker`the command name is the package name, don't think you need to tell people that in the factoid00:22
Flannelalso, cat textfile > pastebinit "textfilename > pastebinit" won't work.00:23
FlannelIf you don't have it installed, will Ubuntu recommend it?00:23
geniiFlannel: I actually wanted to just point to !apt or !apt-get so they could use method of choice  but that (those) factoid doesn't really help with that aspect00:24
FlannelSo, can probably skip the installation stuff, since they'll get that after they try it?00:24
Seeker`how about something like "automatically pastebins command output, or any other text, and returns a URL. For example: "command-name | pastebinit" or: "cat textfile-name > pastebinit"00:24
FlannelI think that's brevity at the expense of clarity.00:24
Seeker`genii: if someone doesn't know how to install packages, they'll ask00:24
Flannel(and Ubuntu will tell them)00:24
Flannelalthough, I suppose we can't count on those.00:25
geniiSeeker`: True :) I was just taking an example from the suggestion and trying to encompass users who don't use synaptic as in their sample00:25
FlannelI don't really think we need to worry about being that frontend agnostic.  The point is to get the thing installed so they can use it.00:26
Seeker`I mean, if you explain installing the package in the factoid, then you should probably include information about pipe, and cat, and redirecting output, and what pastebin actually is00:26
FlannelSeeker`: No, that's just silly.00:26
Seeker`Flannel: thats my point00:26
FlannelSeeker`: Uh, no?00:26
geniiOK lemme try a cleanup on it. 00:26
Flannel"apt-get install pastebinit" is much different than "cat outputs the file to stdout, pipe redirects it from stdout"00:27
FlannelSeeker`: Someone who just needs help in #u would likely benefit from the former, and not care about the latter.00:27
Flannels/would likely/may/00:28
Seeker`Flannel: if they need to know about installation they will ask, there is no need to flood the channel with the potentially useless information00:28
Seeker`my point was that we shouldn't need to teach people to install stuff in a factoid when the package name is the same as the command00:28
FlannelSeeker`: Adding twenty more characters isn't really a big deal00:29
FlannelSeeker`: Why not?  That doesn't seem to follow any logic.00:29

geniiWith above, if they try the command it will instruct them how to install00:29
FlannelI'm just worried that after they try the command (and don't have it installed) they'll think they're done.00:30
Seeker`Flannel: if 20 characters is no big deal, then why not explain cat, and pipe00:30
FlannelSeeker`: Because they don't provide 00:30
FlannelSeeker`: Because they don't provide *any* value to the factoid, and would take lines upon lines?00:30
FlannelThey don't help solve the "how do I pastebin" problem00:32

geniiI'm *not* touching that suggestion00:34
Flannelalmost !scope worthy00:34
geniiCurrent suggestion for pastebinit acceptable ?00:35
geniiSeeker`, Flannel , any edits or concerns for: pastebinit is <reply> pastebinit is the command-line equivelent of !pastebin . Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output. Simple usage: command-name | pastebinit 00:38
Seeker`genii: fine by me00:39
geniiOK, added00:40
geniiI figure if they try the usage suggested, it will just recommend how to install it since the packagename is the program name. And it refers to the usual !pastebin for further info00:41

aI would like to know why I was kicked from #ubuntu02:58
LjLwhat the02:58
Flannela: bug, hold on a sec02:58
FlannelLjL: I've seen this before, actually.02:58
LjLno, it's not a "bug"02:59
aI'm going through mibbit.com02:59
aa proxy, apparently02:59
Flannela: right, hold on a sec.02:59
FlannelLjL: a program did something its not supposed to.  That's what most people consider a bug.02:59
ais it angry about my name?  I find it quite funny03:00
Flannela: Try rejoining (you'll have to go through the proxy room again)03:00
LjLFlannel: indeed. i thought it was a *certain* IP which it is not.03:02
FlannelLjL: Nah, it bans some innocent bystander, it happened to me once in the past too.  I'm wondering if it some sort of odd crosstalk here.  Since last time the person involved was in this channel as well.03:03
LjLFlannel: the bots aren't in this channel so they can't see what's happening here03:04
LjLFlannel: it almost certainly has something to do with one of your kicks, though, i have to see which and whyu03:05
Hobbseejpds: oh, yes please.  For it to recognise jaunty in !info packagname releasename03:06

LjL[16:28:40] <LjL> hi i'd like permission to make a quick ad for two language learning related channels in -irc, i think it should be appropriate since it's a multilingual channel15:31
LjLexcept i intended to say that here and not on -irc to begin with :<15:32
bazhangwhat's the channel?15:32
LjLbazhang: ##francais (not mine) and ##scandinavian (mine)15:33
bazhangLjL, you speak either?15:33
Myrttibazhang: swedish15:33
LjLi've learned some swedish, and i can more or less read french and sometimes write something that resembles it15:33
bazhangLjL, you can speak swedish? wow15:34
bazhangI can read/speak/write etc French15:34
Myrttiit's not like it's hard ;-)15:34
LjLand given swedish is similar enough to the other two to be mostly mutually intelligible, i thought one channel for all three would be nice15:34
