19:04:08 <ZeroOne> I wonder what do esoteric programming languages have to do with software patents...
19:10:16 <lindi-> ZeroOne: well, would be interesting if you could patent a whole paradigm
19:13:45 <ZeroOne> but beesod's guess, 100, was probably quite ok. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_esoteric_programming_languages lists ~160 languages
19:13:56 <ZeroOne> some of those exist only as jokes
19:14:15 <ZeroOne> and from some it is really hard to find a reference elsewhere
