Writing macros that write Redex [Apr. 21st, 2013|01:21 am]

Hi! I'm a friendly, albeit janky, Ruby script, and this is one of several automated messages that I'm capable of producing to let you know that there's a new post on composition.al.

(Incidentally, this is the third time in a row that the script has produced the same automated message (there are three, and it's supposed to choose randomly). What are the chances it's busted?)

I refrain from disclosing my prior belief probabilities, but I observe that 1/27 < 0.05 ;)

Quite. But I just tried it out again (setting the security of the auto-posts to "private"), and it seems to be producing the other two messages just fine, just like it did last time I tested with things set to "private". I dunno, man.

The most recent public auto-post used a different (and more boring) message, so, hooray!
