Random thoughts:
Spellcheck Monestry. It is Monastery:)

This is emailed? Should it just be the page that's served after creating a new user? Either would be fine by me, but I think some people have a problem with large mailboxes.

Perhaps a friendly request-for-use to Nathan Torkington. Can't hurt to be polite.

At the risk of lengthening a long doc perhaps, at the end, we could throw vroom a bone and mention Buy Stuff

I of course bow to wiser heads. ++tachyon and all involved.

    Spellcheck. Check. I never cood spell good!

    No this documant has no status whatsoever at the moment. I have changed the opening text to reflect this. It is an RFC (Request For Comment) as it were.

    I agree with the suggestion to email Nathan Torkington for permission to R&D (Rip off and Duplicate) his work, and have done so with a link to here. I expect that by the time we finish there will be little of the original left, except the concept and the major external links.

    Added a bone to check out the general feeling, I for one could live without getting another message from our sponsor. Ever!

    Thanks for the feedback

    The easiest way to remember the correct spelling is to think of the word "monastic" (of or relating to monasteries).

    When I get lost on the spelling of a word which is usually pronounced in such a way that the vowels are not emphasized and are therefore not as easy to remember (is it a, e or u?), I try to recall a derivative (derivation) where the pronounciation makes the proper spelling obvious.

[Corion]: ... in Pg, but that would mean that I'd have to deal with credentials and stuff :)
[Corion]: In fact, the whole thing is just four simple programs, one App::scrape, another being DBIx::RunSQL, and one some glue to convert a JSON object into an SQL INSERT statement (+DBI connect/execute), so it would be an incredibly simple solution...
[Corion]: ... but that simplicity falls down due to SQLite letting me down and me being too lazy to move to a real DB. Maybe DBD::CSV can handle window functions...
[hippo]: Pg has the "trust" mechanism if you don't fancy using credentials for a trivial db.
[Corion]: hippo: Oooh, that sounds quite nice - let me read the documentation on that :)
[hippo]: https://www. postgresql.org/ docs/current/ static/auth- methods.html#AUTH- TRUST
[erix]: or compile & run an instance as yourself (not user 'postgres')
[erix]: easiest setup is to run with PG* env variables set, and a custom .pgpass files (can be a $PGPASSFILE)
[Corion]: Hmm - "trust" sounds interesting, but I have still to find whether I can restrict that on a per-DB level ;)
[Corion]: erix: Sure, but SQLite doesn't even need that :)
