    @matigo Ideally the website shouldn’t sanitise names, ever, at all [www.kalzumeus.com]. If you are called ‘drop table users;’, then that’s your name and you should be able to enter it. The DB simply shouldn’t be vulnerable to injection. @streakmachine

      @keita I’m sure they are.
      cgiffard
        @keita I’m sure they’ve archived a lot of crazy talk too.

          @pharsicle @matigo I need to get my stego proxy working and hosted!

            Where does HK get its internet connection? Surely not all the links go through China…

              @shauncollins Ah yeah. ES5 doesn’t have TCO, which is really garbage.

                @shauncollins Considering Erlang will happily chew through an infinite loop without issue, I wonder why it has problems with infinite recursion.

                  @matigo @rabryst @keita At this stage the only thing I trust to stick around for even just 25 years is physical media that I can hold in my very own hands, stored with a reader for it — warehoused in a number of locations. And I even wonder about that.

                    @rabryst @matigo @keita Even if we trusted Amazon to still be 1) around; and 2) providing the glacier service in 25 years — who knows what data formats or media would even be used then! It’s a challenge. :-/

                      @shauncollins Obviously not working in a language with tail-call-optimisation. :-/

                        @smc I dunno — I’d say that in my experience the quality and usability of software on Github is substantially better than the quality and usability of software not on Github.

                          *sigh* Another recruiter trying to sell me my own job…

                            @lasar I’m always happy to do PR review if you need a second pair of eyes. :)

                              @lasar Do you think it’d be usable as a serious phone?
                              cgiffard
                                @lasar Like anything code related. :)

                                  @matigo Tape, at this stage. Another company does it — data is uploaded to them on schedule and they copy it to tape on their premise. But even they can’t guarantee storage for 25 years… @keita
                                  cgiffard
                                    @matigo It’s a genuinely challenging data archival problem. :-/ @keita

                                      @matigo Not liability — for the actual research. And the law seems the recordings a medical record, so they have to be stored in their original form for 25 years. The family or the child (once grown up) could request them at any time. @keita

                                        @matigo Well, you could say that. She runs a child psychology practice specialising in research into a particular intervention for which huge amounts of uncompressed video are required to be stored. @keita
