Pchr8.net wiki thing

Hi! I'm exploring this wiki as a possibility for "social" bookmarking and/or Personal knowledge management. Things may break, disappear or explode at any time, as with anything on *.pchr8.net/*.

The 25th March 2020 I decided to resurrect this after a pause from about May 2019[1], and most probably heavy restructuring will follow - things below may or may not be actual or working.

Currently this wiki contains 1,250 articles and categories (mostly links), edited 2,122 times. The last created pages are on Special:Newestpages.

Using contains basic things I'm likely to forget (Markup, Syntax, Style guide, taxonomy, ...).

Interesting pages

Reading modalities

(need a better name for it)

For the pages in those categories, "rating" means "How much do I want/need to read this", "complexity" means "how hard I found it at first glance"

  • PotentiallyInteresting for wider areas of knowledge than books or web pages, that I might check out in some far-away future


Every time I do one of these, I should visit the pages for things I forget or should keep in mind

Links database

The core of this wiki. For now, this wiki will be divided into the following very broad intersecting areas (only most important categories shown):

TODO restructure


We'll see how this goes.


Todo: system for quotes, probably using the exact same category system. I'll just add another category or namespace? To fix:

  1. SyntaxHighlight
  2. [Current scripts] to the new vimscript ones described in 450 | Diensttagebuch
  3. Add all the characters outlined in https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Page_title to the Current_scripts.
  4. Selected text on a page should go in the newly created page, after "----", to signal to the transforming script that those are not the categories anymore, but just additional text. Update both the qutebrowser userscript and the vimscript to reflect that (= two macros, one for "fill and close" and one for "fill and wait")
  5. Fix it not always recognizing Wikipedia links as valid links
  6. Make it automatically work with "="s with it being used as a variable (See � https://www.pchr8.net/f/index.php/Using#Additionally)
  7. Also remove the ?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+collabfund+%28Collaborative+Fund%29 trash at the end of URLs automatically
  8. Do I want Google Analytics?
  9. Make it work with empty titles (using link instead of title, prolly; but what to do with special characters? Or just asking in a prompt)
  10. Some scripts to check for link rot and/or archive the pages?
  11. A script which generates "What should you read next", which uses a) rating, b) time added to the Wiki, the more old, the better; then it generates either a wiki page or, even better, RSS. Bonus points for buttons a la "I have read this"
  12. Quantified Self -- at what times do I usually add pages ? How long do I take to "read" them? What are the average complexities and ratings I give them, and how it depends on time of the day? Creation of categories vs addition of pages/links, time of addition => time when I'm most likely to procrastinate, etc etc etc?

Far away: do an extension with an overlay, where you enter everything or accept defaults by pressing "Enter", then confirm (kinda like the adduser utility combined with sth a la Guake terminal) or edit, and it gets sent here automagically.

  1. 3 shell scripts: Kill weasel words, avoid the passive, eliminate duplicates seems to be the last page before this got abandoned
