Harzileinhi
is there a way to find out (from github itself) for a user that may have moved repos away to another user (say from a personal to a project account) which repos he has moved and where? or is it equivalent to a deleted repo for those purposes?
this has some shortlink-like archiving implications for me, even if a redirect gets set up
(also asked in freenode #github)
[12:12]
..... (idle for 22mn)
JAAAs in, you want to find all repositories originally created by user X but now moved to some other user or organisation? I don't think that's possible, but don't quote me on it.
But if you have e.g. a list of repositories and want to check whether they were moved, then you can do that. The old link will redirect to the new repository, and the API will work as well.
But only as long as the repository was actually moved, not deleted and recreated (obviously), and as long as the original user doesn't create a new repository with the same name.
This applies to repository renames as well, by the way.
I'm not sure what happens if a repository is moved twice.

brayden has quit IRC (Quit: Going offline, see ya! (www.adiirc.com)) [13:49]
HarzileinJAA: it seems not possible alright
next thing (thought not strictly archiving related) is that they have an undocumented way to scrape the branches that contain a commit... but no way to scrape the same for tags, grrrr
(this is about huge repos, naturally ;)
for the moving archives i just resolved to using the documented moves, then checking for every repo on the target account if there is a redirection on the original account, in case they left something undocumented
i think renaming the repos while moving might introduce the "moved twice" scenario and i think it won't redirect twice
i might scrape wayback pages of the repos too, that's basically what i set out to do anyway...

odemgia upload leveraged by tubeup timesout almost instantly when uploading a small video, what the fuck
output: https://pastebin.com/raw/iJdMyKGc
this is so fucking annoying as tubeup does everything nicely, metadata and all and saves a lot of time, ia is always complaining about something

pie_you guys know any good ocr software? im scanning in a bunch of documents and it would be nice if they were searchable
or perhaps some other place i can ask?
[16:11]
JAAodemg: "Uploading /root/[...]" *twitch* [16:13]
odemgJAA, droplet I fired up solely to upload those videos, was to be destroyed moments later. [16:15]
dashcloudpie_: if you're going to pay for it, Nuance & ABBYY make fantastic OCR software, and if you're going to upload to IA, you get your stuff OCR'd as part of the process [16:21]
pie_dashcloud, this is just personal stuf [16:21]
dashcloudthen buy a package from one of those companies- they make amazing products. If you have a scanner software package, you may already have something as part of that. [16:24]
pie_ok thanks ill check them out [16:24]

HarzileinSomebody2: there was one in the portableapps collection that worked quite nicely... it had its own ui interface library though, so if your nontechnical user gets scared by such things it might not be the best choice

icedicepie_: ABBYY FineReader seems to be the most well-liked OCR software: https://alternativeto.net/software/abbyy-finereader/
When it comes to free alternatives Tesseract seems pretty well-liked, and it's open source
[20:02]
JAAOh nice, I just noticed that you can &sort=-lastfiledate on IA, which lists the items ordered by when the newest file in each item was uploaded. Interestingly, this isn't exposed on the interface as far as I can see.
... and it only works on search.php, not on advancedsearch.php.

Somebody2: If you really want it to MP3 then XRECODE is probably the best option
I'd recommend AAC though
Better quality, smaller filesize, and universal support
If you want to try AAC then I'd go with either a GUI to eac3to or XRECODE
[20:32]
***kristian_ has joined #archiveteam-bs [20:39]
...... (idle for 27mn)
icediceThe developers of the MP3 format even announced that it's dead a while ago and encouraged people to switch to modern formats like AAC [21:06]
pikhqThat's a misreading of the state of affairs.
They announced their patent licensing program was dead.
Which it is, because the patent term expired.
It's not the best format anymore, because others are just superior, but in some cases MP3 remains a valid choice.
[21:11]
.... (idle for 17mn)
joepie91icedice: "The developers of the MP3 format even announced that it's dead" was a clever marketing move to mitigate their business risk of their patents expiring.
icedice: MP3 is not any more "dead" than it was a year ago, but since the patents have now expired and the creators can no longer turn a profit from licenses, they REALLY REALLY want you to use one of their newer formats that they *do* still hold non-expired patents to.
icedice: therefore, they publicly proclaimed MP3 to be "dead" to scare people into those newer formats.
it's a PR game, nothing more.
[21:30]
icediceI know that it doesn't matter practically
I doubt that the format has seen any development for ages
[21:32]
joepie91(and I'm sad that so many media outlets and random people got tricked by that)
naturally not, as is the case for most all standardized formats
[21:32]
icediceAnd manufacturers and developers are not going to stop supporting it [21:32]
***Honno has quit IRC (Read error: Operation timed out)

[21:32]
joepie91icedice: and its relative non-efficiency can be a valid reason to use something else, I'm just pointing out that "the creators said that MP3 is dead" is 100% completely irrelevant to any real-world decisions [21:32]
icediceI just thought it was saying something that they admit that their format is pretty useless now [21:33]
joepie91and not worth mentioning
no, they don't
that is the point
[21:33]
icediceBut I see what you're saying [21:33]
joepie91they don't "admit that their format is pretty useless now"
they're just trying to scare you into a new license.
[21:33]
icediceoutdated is a better word [21:33]
joepie91no, it's not. [21:33]
icediceAAC > MP3 either way [21:33]
joepie91again, this has nothing to do with outdated or useless or whatever else
the ONLY thing this has to do with, is the patents expiring and them wanting you to get a new license for a different format.
precisely zero things have changed from a technical perspective
"they said it's dead" is 100% irrelevant information.
it's marketing spin.
[21:33]
icediceOk [21:35]
joepie91icedice: and like I said, yes, the non-efficiency can be a valid reason to use something else. but let's not pander to fraunhofer's sketchy marketing tactics by repeating their "MP3 is dead" bullshit as if it has any real-world merit or truth to it whatsoever :)
on which note: look at Opus instead if you want a good audio compression format
icedice: ref https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opus_(audio_format)
"Opus replaces both Vorbis and Speex for new applications, and several blind listening tests have ranked it higher-quality than any other standard audio format at any given bitrate until transparency is reached, including MP3, AAC, and HE-AAC."
it's also an open format and not patent-encumbered.
[21:35]
icediceI'm just tired of shittily compressed files [21:36]
FroggingI buy all my music on either CDs or FLACs
nowadays
[21:37]
icediceIt'll probably take a while before Opus is universally supported though [21:38]
joepie91icedice: that's no different for anything not-MP3, though. there are still plenty of portable music players in circulation that only do eg. MP3 and APE
and if you're playing your music on a reasonably generic device (phone, console, computer, whatever) then you can just grab an arbitrary player that does Opus
[21:38]
icediceNobody uses MP3 players anymor though [21:39]
joepie91you're definitely wrong there :) [21:39]
icediceThe last time I saw an MP3 player was probably in elementary school or high school [21:39]
joepie91okay, but "the last time I saw X" is different from "nobody uses X" [21:39]
icediceok [21:40]
joepie91small, portable MP3 players are still popular for eg. running [21:40]
icediceAnd things are different in Finland [21:40]
joepie91since they're lightweight, inexpensive and therefore not a big deal if you drop it into a puddle [21:40]
icedicePeople here just use their phones and drain all of their battery
It would be nice if FLIF would be widely adopted though
(It's an image format)
[21:40]
joepie91my point being: either you use a generic device and you can just install an Opus player, or you're using an MP3 player that doesn't support any of the newer formats *anyway*
so device support is not really a concern
when talking about Opus

t2t2Android <7 natively plays opus if you trick it into thinking it's a webm (so file.opus.webm is fine) [21:52]
FroggingI used to use an MP3 player to test some analog circuit designs when I played with that stuff
Then one time the battery was dead and I used my iPad
that was the time the wiring was wrong and I blew the iPad's DAC -_-
