Also FYI, world, to anyone confused about another question I had and then answered,

Semantic Tags can tag other Semantic Tags! (if their tag type allows for it ofc)

Otherwise encryption (Id 16) and Mark-for-Backreferences (Id 28) and other very generic ones wouldn't be so useful!

And it does officially say so in the spec: tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7049#se

[A tag always applies to the item that is directly followed by it.
Thus, if tag A is followed by tag B, which is followed by...]

@lightdark I was just starting to realize that XD

What confused me was "multiple" under Data Item in the registry: iana.org/assignments/cbor-tags

But I think it means a single item of multiple possible types!

Thanks so much for the confirmation! :D

@codepuppy I believe that semantic tagging always affects exactly one value, so if you wanted to take multiple you'd be required to wrap them in an array

We need a new term for IRL (in real life). For me, and I think a lot of people with chronic illnesses etc, talking to people online IS real life.

I'm not comfortable with the term 'meatspace', as it's too close to experiences of women being treated like a piece of meat*.

So do people have any other suggestions?

*not sure if this was just an Australian thing or not

I'm writing a CBOR wrapper. It's supposedly optional, but does anyone know how to *not* decode semantic tags?

Like, say, in the middle of a Map you have Tag, Byte String, Byte String.
How do you know if the Tag takes up 0, 1, 2, or etc. of those byte strings, given that changes whether they're part of a key or a value?

( @lightdark ? )

Does anyone have any opinions on CBOR? :3


@Elizafox Yus :3

wooden bullets are being used in columbus ohio in lieu of rubber bullets. these were used often in hong kong and are known to splinter upon impact to the ground and skin, causing wooden shards to erupt.

rubber bullets are known to ricochet uncontrollably when fired at the ground, but wooden bullets can splinter and explode upon impact. both are extremely dangerous.

HEY, rubber bullets aren’t made out of rubber.

they are metal bullets coated with a thin layer of rubber. the cops obviously know this. they aren’t non lethal. they are not meant for close range.

they were invented as a way to break up riots by firing the bullet at the ground with the intent to bounce into people’s legs without much injury and are expected to produce contusions, abrasions, and hematomas in those cases but they can kill.

police that are shooting them point blank at people's heads are shooting to kill.

@ndegruchy @mercurythedragon Violence is inherent to the institution of policing as we know it. An effective justice system will not and cannot include police per se, especially armed.

@mercurythedragon @witchfynder_finder I was reading a post from twitter from someone who listens to police scanners, and apparently the cops themselves never use the term "rubber bullet". They call them 40mm rounds.

@mercurythedragon Jesus Christ that looks like the damn things from Mario

@mercurythedragon I feel like the name "rubber bullet" is purposely misleading so people envision, like, a 9mm bullet but made of rubber instead of the hulking monstrosities they actually are

@Elizafox ahhh you'll feel right at home in Minecraft

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Does anyone know of a CBOR test data corpus? :)

Or is interested in finding/making one with me? :>
