@DavidCarlisle Which glyph is your favorite in Latin Modern Math, and why is it "2061?

@mickep This is U+2061 FUNCTION APPLICATION: compart.com/en/unicode/U+2061 But it should have no printed representation.
 
@JasperHabicht Indeed, that is the point. :)
 
@JosephWright Looks like it works great! Thanks for your quick work!

@mickep who thought it would be fun to draw an invisible operator in such a way:(

@JosephWright you just need to convince someone to stop patching fonts from Lua and release updated fonts as fonts
 
@DavidCarlisle I don't know. Probably just some misunderstanding. The same in the Gyre fonts, it seems...
Hm, I was now logged out of both overleaf (earlier) and now tex.stackexchange.
@DavidCarlisle No news from the arxiv tracker after Bruce's comment, it seems. Maybe they were too busy with tikz-cd...
 
yo'
3:45 PM
@mickep Overleaf was under DoS earlier today.
 
@yo' Oh, people...
 
@mickep give Norbert a bit of time to settle in then we can ask again...
 
@DavidCarlisle Yes, no hurries. I also wonder a bit if they (arXiv) will enable luatex anytime soon, but that is a different thing.
 
@mickep @UlrikeFischer did nudge them again on that somewhere recently (texlive list I think)
 
@DavidCarlisle Oh, very good.
 
4:05 PM
@DavidCarlisle yes the opportunity was too good to miss ...

@samcarter Thanks!

@AlanMunn Do you have time for a(nother) question?
 
yo'
5:40 PM
@mickep yeah :(
 
@egreg it could happen to anybody (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/710324/…)
 
5:54 PM
@cfr Probably.
 
@Skillmon 🙃

6:11 PM
@AlanMunn I wondered if you knew where I could find simple examples of grammaticalized evidentials.
 
@cfr For some value of 'simple'. :)
 
cfr
@AlanMunn That looks great - thank-you! I wasn't sure where to search for linguistics ;).
 
@cfr It's a fairly recent addition to the linguistics journal world, and really quite good for these kinds of survey articles.
 
cfr
@AlanMunn Well, yes. But I really just want something concrete as opposed to an abstract description of what another language does.
@AlanMunn Where do you typically search for linguistics articles generally?
 
@cfr For the journals that I tend to read, Google Scholar usually finds things. Journal-wise: Linguistic Inquiry, Natural Language and Linguistic Theory, Glossa, The Linguistic Review, Semantics and Pragmatics, Natural Language Semantics, Journal of Semantics, Linguistics and Philosophy. And for pre-prints, lingbuzz.net
 
cfr
@AlanMunn Thanks. That's very useful to know. Philosophy has a dedicated database, but I get the impression most subjects don't.
 
@cfr There's also Linguistics, Language, and Behavior Abstracts, which is through our library. That's much more comprehensive a database.
 
cfr
@AlanMunn Philosophy used to be like that. The Philosopher's Index was the database and libraries paid for it. Then they changed the interface and made it horrible to search, PhilPapers came along and I've not heard anybody mention PI for years. Libraries are asked to pay for PhilPapers now, but it is free for individuals, but it is slower on campus if your library doesn't pay. I suspect it is also far cheaper than PI. The only problem is older stuff is sometimes missing.
 
 
1 hour later…
7:52 PM
@UlrikeFischer on my way to a gold badge....

@DavidCarlisle Aren't you curious about the other project that actually required 55 section levels?
 
@mickep any bets that it needed 55 sections? :-)
 
@DavidCarlisle No(,) heads will roll.
 
 
2 hours later…
10:03 PM
@DavidCarlisle might be only my browser being weird, but some formatting on LearnLaTeX looks odd to me.
 
@Skillmon blame @UlrikeFischer
@Skillmon which page?
 
@DavidCarlisle Lesson 8, Tables.
 
@Skillmon no one's missing that text:-)
 
@DavidCarlisle awefully out of date, now with tabularray and nicematrix no one is gonna use tabular anyway.
 
@Skillmon I'll have a look odd it's just one example not all of them as it's all mostly scripted..
 
10:08 PM
@DavidCarlisle yeah, I know. Thanks for taking a look :)
 
@Skillmon ^^ that's chrome, but looks same in firefox, which browser do you have
@Skillmon do you see same in the translations?
 
@DavidCarlisle the fox
v122.0 64-bit Arch Linux build.
@DavidCarlisle forget about it. Allowing Cloudflare-Scripts for the site fixes the view (and additionally provides syntax highlighting for the other code views).
So just my fault for my overly restricted settings :)
 
@Skillmon I guess I could detect that the editor didn't load from the cdn and adjust or at least complain somewhere
 
10:25 PM
@DavidCarlisle probably not worth the hassle. I'd guess my paranoia settings aren't that common, and normally people having these settings should know where to look if there are issues (I just didn't check because I thought LL wasn't pulling in third party scripts)
 
@Skillmon I didn't feel like writing an editor from scratch (and couldn't find an emacs implementation in javascript)
 
@DavidCarlisle no wonder, implementing an OS in JavaScript sounds like a really bad idea.
@DavidCarlisle but I got you covered if you're searching for an editor: github.com/itsjoesullivan/js-vim
(the git looks very abandoned though, I'll have to search for a more up to date thingy)
@DavidCarlisle there, you got an editor now ^^ :)
 
@Skillmon not working, I tried C-x C-c and nothing happened
@Skillmon but sadly today I've been using nano
 
@DavidCarlisle still better than Emacs?
 
david@learnlatex:~$ emacs
-bash: emacs: command not found
david@learnlatex:~$
 
10:36 PM
@DavidCarlisle I honestly have no idea when I last had to use nano. I remember that a month ago or so I had to use vi. But why would I need to use nano?
 
@Skillmon I wasn't sure how much space Stefan wanted me to use installing stuff and anyway if doing a lot of stuff I can use my local emacs and tunnel the edits through ssh but for quick edits to make @UlrikeFischer happy nano's ok
@Skillmon so, as I've been tinkering with an unknown editor in the texlive.net website config, I did wonder if your table example formating might have been something not totally unrelated to today's activity.
