Article list seems to loop back

Postby nwsc » 10 Aug 2015, 19:46

I have several feeds in a "folder". From the web interface, I click on the folder and find about 1,900 articles unread. I start clicking through them and the unread count dutifully counts down. I use the "n" key to advance through articles or the next article button(the addon). I get down to around 1784 (exactly 120 read) and suddenly the articles seem to be the same ones I started with and they are already read. The count down of unread articles doesn't change. If I click on the folder of feeds again, I get new articles to be read and life is good. Its just a little annoying because I don't always realize the articles have already been read (since some feeds will post the same article, with minor revisions several times).

I've noticed this happen several times in the past and I think its repeatable. I've used TTRSS for over a year and this seems new. My browser is Chrome 44.0.2403 under Windows 7 (64bit). My TTRSS is running on a self hosted Ubuntu 15.04 with a postgresql dB. The machine is kept current so the PHP/Apache/etc. should be current. Although I had doubts about the switch to git, that change makes upgrading TTRSS so trivial that I should be current with that. (I'm sorry I doubted you fox. :-(

Any suggestions?

there's a problem with keyboard navigation forgetting where you are, and jumping back to the first article, (make a mental note of what it is when you start reading, you'll see the scroll bar jump back up) and sometimes, even worse, it'll jump AHEAD many articles.

Fox doesn't use keyboard navigation, so I've never been able to get him interested in looking into it.

it seems to have gotten much worse lately.

Hah, I thought my db was having issues and kept trying to figure it out since I was experiencing exactly what is described. I see it happen frequently when using j/k hotkeys.

I've noticed it skipping back after it loads more articles from the db... not every time but often. and then sometimes ctl-down won't load new articles.

instead of 'next article' a 'next unread article' hotkey would be nice.

I just did ctl-down till it stopped, hitting ctl-down did nothing, then I scrolled down, and got the "loading, please wait" more showed up, and I hit ctl-down, and it skipped back to the start.

that's repeatable.

Pardon my ignorance but how does one navigate the articles if you don't the buttons? I guess I could scroll and click read but that seems cumbersome. I know there's a setting to mark read as one scrolls, I guess that would smooth things.

scrolling down is cumbersome? how do you manage on the internet in general?

e: i usually have stuff set as combined/expanded + auto mark as read and just scroll

scroll ctl-n scroll scroll ctl-n scroll ctl-n scroll ctl-n

much nicer to just do ctl-n until seeing something in the flood of feeds that catches the eye.

that's how I have it, only there's often a lot of quite long articles in some of the feeds that I'm not interested in, so just ctl-n or Open next article (don't scroll long articles) as the keyboard help says, to skip to the to of the next article, is quicker than scrolling, it's nice to just see the next article pop into the top position for a glance at the headline, and 'next' if that one doesn't look interesting..

THEY'RE MADE OUT OF MEAT


"They're made out of meat."

"Meat?"

"Meat. They're made out of meat."

"Meat?"

"There's no doubt about it. We picked up several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, and probed them all the way through. They're completely meat."

"That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars?"

"They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines."

"So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact."

"They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines."

"That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat."

"I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in that sector and they're made out of meat."

"Maybe they're like the orfolei. You know, a carbon-based intelligence that goes through a meat stage."

"Nope. They're born meat and they die meat. We studied them for several of their life spans, which didn't take long. Do you have any idea what's the life span of meat?"

"Spare me. Okay, maybe they're only part meat. You know, like the weddilei. A meat head with an electron plasma brain inside."

"Nope. We thought of that, since they do have meat heads, like the weddilei. But I told you, we probed them. They're meat all the way through."

"No brain?"

"Oh, there's a brain all right. It's just that the brain is made out of meat! That's what I've been trying to tell you."

"So ... what does the thinking?"

"You're not understanding, are you? You're refusing to deal with what I'm telling you. The brain does the thinking. The meat."

"Thinking meat! You're asking me to believe in thinking meat!"

"Yes, thinking meat! Conscious meat! Loving meat. Dreaming meat. The meat is the whole deal! Are you beginning to get the picture or do I have to start all over?"

"Omigod. You're serious then. They're made out of meat."

"Thank you. Finally. Yes. They are indeed made out of meat. And they've been trying to get in touch with us for almost a hundred of their years."

"Omigod. So what does this meat have in mind?"

"First it wants to talk to us. Then I imagine it wants to explore the Universe, contact other sentiences, swap ideas and information. The usual."

"We're supposed to talk to meat."

"That's the idea. That's the message they're sending out by radio. 'Hello. Anyone out there. Anybody home.' That sort of thing."

"They actually do talk, then. They use words, ideas, concepts?"
"Oh, yes. Except they do it with meat."

"I thought you just told me they used radio."

"They do, but what do you think is on the radio? Meat sounds. You know how when you slap or flap meat, it makes a noise? They talk by flapping their meat at each other. They can even sing by squirting air through their meat."

"Omigod. Singing meat. This is altogether too much. So what do you advise?"

"Officially or unofficially?"

"Both."

"Officially, we are required to contact, welcome and log in any and all sentient races or multibeings in this quadrant of the Universe, without prejudice, fear or favor. Unofficially, I advise that we erase the records and forget the whole thing."

"I was hoping you would say that."

"It seems harsh, but there is a limit. Do we really want to make contact with meat?"

"I agree one hundred percent. What's there to say? 'Hello, meat. How's it going?' But will this work? How many planets are we dealing with here?"

"Just one. They can travel to other planets in special meat containers, but they can't live on them. And being meat, they can only travel through C space. Which limits them to the speed of light and makes the possibility of their ever making contact pretty slim. Infinitesimal, in fact."

"So we just pretend there's no one home in the Universe."

"That's it."

"Cruel. But you said it yourself, who wants to meet meat? And the ones who have been aboard our vessels, the ones you probed? You're sure they won't remember?"

"They'll be considered crackpots if they do. We went into their heads and smoothed out their meat so that we're just a dream to them."

"A dream to meat! How strangely appropriate, that we should be meat's dream."

"And we marked the entire sector unoccupied."

"Good. Agreed, officially and unofficially. Case closed. Any others? Anyone interesting on that side of the galaxy?"

"Yes, a rather shy but sweet hydrogen core cluster intelligence in a class nine star in G445 zone. Was in contact two galactic rotations ago, wants to be friendly again."

"They always come around."

"And why not? Imagine how unbearably, how unutterably cold the Universe would be if one were all alone ..."
