Hey, a palindrome finally happened: Reputation 88,888, (Somebody must be helping.) It even looks the same upside-down, modulo the comma.

Interesting, just got this: "There is an attempt to coordinate the graphical profile at LTH, this time including LaTeX templates. The current suggestion is to standardize letters, slides (beamer) and possible theses, having full support for accessibility." (LTH is our faculty)
 
@mickep Sounds very interresting
@JasperHabicht Use \fp_if_nan:n(TF)
 
8:01 AM
@mickep I made ours for letters. Took over from Kaja when a new design came. I've never gotten around to fully finish the beamer version of the PowerPoint template. But the handling of the AU fonts is a great step in the right direction. (just need time).
@mickep what exactly do they mean by having full support for accessibility
 
@daleif I have no clue.
But I will probably find out, in due time.

@mickep @samcarter dr.dk/nyheder/indland/… , in Danish, but the images speak on their own.
 
@daleif How very sad!
 
10:36 AM
@daleif Very sad to see.
 
@AlanMunn Have you watched the Frasier reboot? :)

Puh, this is a long lasting method...

I gues, with exploration3 one line again...
\pgfmathsetlengthmacro\yShift{%
\deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[0] || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[1]
 || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[2] || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[3]
 || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[4]  || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[5]
? -0.5*\cardheight : (
\deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[6] || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[7]
  || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[8] || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[9]
  || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[10]  || \deckarray[\no]==\choosearray[11]
? 0.5*\cardheight : 0pt)}

@DavidCarlisle I guess we will have to update the files again ...
 
@UlrikeFischer xr? No I don't think so, just minor typos, can't it wait until next time? hyperref checks are failing in properties tests though
 
No I meant the PDF files, see the newest pdfa issue.
 
@UlrikeFischer oh haven't seen that I can't do anything until later but I'll look for the mail)
@UlrikeFischer er I don't see mail, where? is this a gh issue in some repo i don't follow?
 
@UlrikeFischer oh good grief, why do they make their specs so complicated that even the spec editors can't read them:(

2:24 PM
@PauloCereda No, I didn't even know there was one. :)
 
@UlrikeFischer If you push a pdfresources update I'll regenerate everything this evening (or you could regenerate if you want to test your write access:-)
 
2:51 PM
@DavidCarlisle I think we should wait until the dust has settled and the webpage pdfa.org/declarations is updated ...
 
@UlrikeFischer good plan, you could say that in the ticket that if they update the page we'll match, that will remind them to do it:-) so currently both resuse and accessibility URL have a / and the plan is to lose the / from both?
@UlrikeFischer i don't seem to be following that repo, i guess I should
 
@AlanMunn ooh :) There's a Frasier reboot: paramountplus.com/shows/frasier-2023 :)
 
@PauloCereda Well much as I loved Frasier, I'm not going to add yet another streaming service to watch a reboot.
 
@AlanMunn I can relate to that. :) The show is... okay, I guess? It has some good moments, and when Bebe Neuwirth reprised her role as Lilith, I almost freaked out!
 
3:23 PM
@UlrikeFischer I left a comment:-)
 
3:45 PM
@DavidCarlisle yes saw it, a labyrinth of redirections ...
 
@UlrikeFischer all ending in failure:-)
@UlrikeFischer sould I just merge the xcolor PR, I think if we are not planning a release there's no need to insist on date changes and things as we do in the kernel pr's?
 
4:31 PM
@DavidCarlisle Agreed
 
@JosephWright good as I did it:-)
 
5:45 PM
@JosephWright Looks useful

6:43 PM
I am translating 901 pages with ~6sec. each page right now. Uff....
 
@cis 6s per page, what do you put there?
 
@AlanMunn Yes - I will see what the team think
 
@cis I remember when 15 minutes per page was more typical, 6s sounds pretty fast
 
@DavidCarlisle Oh no, the dot in the url...

@mickep
I think the long lasting terms are neither the pgfmath nor the expl3-list-calculations from @DavidCarlisle ( https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/715638/46023 ), but the fanatic usement of TikZ:
 
6:57 PM
@cis Yes, but unless you do a lot of calculations just outputting that should not be so slow...
 
cis
@mickep
Yes, you see these smal open-faced cards; these are own tikzpictures (as command), maybe not the best method.

But I eliminated that and it wasn't much faster.

So the "broken neck" probably comes from David Carlisle's list calculation.
 
@cis Given that the same cards probably occur many times, you can probably speed things up either by setting them up once in a box and then reusing the box or include them as image instead of tikz.
 
7:17 PM
@samcarter Indeed, and then blame David's list. Or come up with something quicker...
 
cis
@samcarter Mhh, so 6 cards are always randomly selected twice from 60 fixed cards.


This is what it looks like (13MB too big to upload the gif file here):

@mickep Blaming David is always the solution :)
 
@mickep eventually that was the issue once you'd worked past the rant:-)
@cis the list calculation is essentially instantaneous compared to a tikzpicture and you have lots of tikz pictures so not my fault
@cis but you only have 60 or so fronts and 1 back so you only need to run tikz 61 times ever and just include those as pdf in each document.
@samcarter That's not how you spell @Ulrike
 
7:36 PM
@DavidCarlisle must have been a typo then :P
 
@AlanMunn -- This is a real tragedy. Do keep us posted regarding reconstruction. When my husband and I visited Copenhagen, we found it to be very attractive and livable. The only complaint I remember was being surprised and depressed by the fee charged at the airport for converting travelers checks to the local currency - each check got its own fee, not the total transaction.
@daleif -- Sorry -- my previous message was intended for you. (Apologies also to @AlanMunn who is no doubt confused.)
 
7:54 PM
@samcarter At least teasing him a bit. :)

8:36 PM
Yes, I only made a prank.
BTW: My 900 pages document is complete.
 
@yo' you guys a overleaf aware of chrome extensions that interact badly with the OK editor? I have a user getting hit by random pieces of his math getting ego replaced by unicode chars. We downloaded the zip and had a look in notepad (still unicode) so not a rendering error in the editor.
 
@daleif like this?
1
A: Equation display in Source Mode in Overleaf

HeathA LATEX chrome extension was the cause of the issue as it was automatically displaying equations in LATEX form with the source text. By deactivating or deleting it from chrome://extensions/ should fix the problem.

@cis shocking:-)

@DavidCarlisle complete as in "Turing complete". :)
 
@PauloCereda supper
 
@DavidCarlisle oh no
