00:01:13 <fizzie> Learn a (less esoteric) language. (Or if not "learn", at least reading the specs/manuals of one takes some time.) There's always some nutty fringe programming language still unexplored. I personally was going to look at OCaml, although I was a bit disappointed at the lack of any "wow, that's new, neat"-reaction from the language description.
00:07:31 <SimonRC> GregorR: learn Haskell.
00:07:48 <ihope> I lubs da Haskell.
00:08:01 <SimonRC> GregorR: subscribe to rec.games.roguelike.development/
00:08:08 <SimonRC> s/\///
00:08:33 <SimonRC> GregorR: The write a roguelike in an inapropriate language.
00:09:42 <fizzie> Or subscribe to rgrn and play some Nethack.

00:11:42 <SimonRC> ihope: did you check out my terp for my new lang (so far)?
00:12:09 <GregorR> You guys are terrible at suggestions.
00:12:47 <SimonRC> ihope: http://compsoc.dur.ac.uk/~sc/Shakell/
00:13:02 <GregorR> I'm gonna download hentai instead of learning Haskell.
00:13:52 * SimonRC is suprised to find out what that is.
00:14:09 <GregorR> AHAHAHAHAHAH
00:16:53 <GregorR> I guess I'll go port DirectNet's gaim plugin to Gaim 2.
00:24:18 <GregorR> Oh, I've got it - I should make a really bad multiplayer hack of NetHack, then post it on rec.games.roguelike.nethack and get flamed :)
00:24:45 <ihope> Yay!

04:28:57 <Amiable> Heheh
04:29:03 <Amiable> Thought I'd be a bit antonymy.
04:29:09 <Arrogant> Mine is better of course but that doesn't even need to be said
04:29:42 <Amiable> Hah
04:30:06 <Amiable> I respect your opinion.
04:31:27 <Arrogant> My iPod wants to upgrade.
04:32:49 <Amiable> What does that mean?
04:34:13 <Arrogant> Nothing.

04:34:20 <Amiable> I see :P
04:34:26 <Arrogant> So I don't really have to do the upgrade

22:50:45 <GregorR-L> Thank you for correcting that ellipses >_> <_<
22:51:02 <ihope> I found a book full of annoying things once.
22:51:18 <ihope> One was wondering whether that ".." was supposed to be a period or an ellipsis.
22:58:24 <Keymaker> was there something "ta!" in english that means "see you" or "bye"?
22:58:40 <Keymaker> or perhaps it was some slang
22:58:48 <GregorR-L> Yeah, but I wouldn't recommend saying it if you weren't a woman or gay ...
22:59:03 <Keymaker> ok.. ta!
22:59:09 <GregorR-L> >_> <_<
22:59:17 <ihope> Aah! Double period!
22:59:22 <GregorR-L> LOL
22:59:37 <Keymaker> :D

23:03:01 * SimonRC goes home.
23:03:27 <ihope> Are you ever coming back?
23:03:27 <GregorR-L> Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ... I guess it sort of does mean "thanks" ... but people use it more often as "bye"
23:03:29 * ihope cries
23:03:32 <ihope> Ta-ta?
23:03:41 <ihope> TTFN!
23:03:56 <{^Raven^}> yeah, ta-ta means bye bye but ta by itself is thanks
23:04:02 <Keymaker> ah
23:04:05 <Keymaker> o-k
23:04:28 <ihope> Tee aye double-guh err.
23:05:43 <GregorR-L> Oll Korrect.
23:05:45 <{^Raven^}> ihope: yeah TTFN is ta-ta for now - but you already knew that :P
23:05:56 <ihope> :-)
23:06:58 <{^Raven^}> so... we're talking about English as an esoteric language? I can go for that. :P
23:07:26 <ihope> ANT.
23:07:44 <ihope> (Aye new that.)
23:08:51 <{^Raven^}> ahh... but Aye == yes (in the north of England)
23:09:44 <ihope> I know it means that here, but is never used...
23:09:56 <{^Raven^}> elsewhere it results in a dictionary lookup error
23:10:16 <{^Raven^}> I guess its generally a Naval thing
23:10:29 <ihope> Guess so.
23:10:37 <GregorR-L> http://www.codu.org/odikeh/
23:13:09 <{^Raven^}> GregorR-L: That's one more step completed in your plans for world domination
23:13:29 <GregorR-L> Yeeeeeeeeeees
23:13:34 <ihope> Ooh! Ooh! Can I have some of the world, too?
23:13:53 * {^Raven^} ponders that Grego..R and Grego..L make up a stereo pair
23:14:06 * ihope noticed that a while ago
23:14:50 <GregorR-L> Wow.
23:14:55 <GregorR-L> That's a bizarre observation.
23:15:07 <{^Raven^}> ihope: You'll have to get your own plans for world domination sorted
23:15:13 <ihope> Aww.
23:15:38 <{^Raven^}> GregorR / GregorR-L: You just have to be a bit esoteric. :)
23:15:46 <ihope> Maybe I'll hack into Greg's system and steal all the stuff...
23:16:05 <GregorR-L> ihope: I can't hack into my own system with my compendium of routers >_<
23:16:37 <ihope> That'll just make it more fun!
23:16:47 <GregorR-L> If you manage it, please tell me how.
23:16:55 <GregorR-L> I'd like to get in occasionally.
23:17:09 <GregorR-L> Probably the easiest would be to find a buffer overflow in one of the many interps in EgoBot.
23:17:16 <{^Raven^}> Does that mean you've lost your root password and hope that someone can figure it out for ya
23:17:34 <GregorR-L> lol
23:17:37 <{^Raven^}> Who is responsible for EgoBot?
23:17:41 <GregorR-L> Me
23:17:48 <{^Raven^}> Hey cool
23:17:55 <GregorR-L> Ego* = me
23:18:39 <{^Raven^}> Kudos to you. I was shellshocked when I saw EgoBot running Lost Kingdom
23:18:54 <GregorR-L> lol
23:18:58 <GregorR-L> It's simpler than it seems.
23:19:05 <ihope> grEGOr?
23:19:07 <GregorR-L> EgoBot just runs external interpreters.
23:19:32 <Keymaker> i'm assuming this new.. erhm languge will replace English within few years

23:20:35 <GregorR-L> It's not grEGOr.
23:20:45 <{^Raven^}> The former (sorry for the shameless plugging) had an excellent review in an interactive fiction magazine recently
23:21:14 <{^Raven^}> so there are a shedload of non-eso aware peeps running a BF program :))
23:21:22 <GregorR-L> lol
23:21:35 <GregorR-L> Now, if only they were running it on egobfc2m >_>
23:21:41 <Keymaker> that's cool! :)

23:24:35 <Keymaker> hmm, i seem to have lost my plan papers

23:25:56 -!- int-e has quit ("Client exiting").
23:27:06 <{^Raven^}> egobfc2m? I can only find it in the chat logs so far
23:27:27 <GregorR-L> It's part of my EgoBF suite, a JIT compiler for BF.
23:27:31 <GregorR-L> The only one I know of.
23:27:34 <GregorR-L> Blazing fast too ^_^
23:28:16 <GregorR-L> And also, PPC machine code is nasty >_<
23:28:52 <{^Raven^}> hey cool. I toyed with writing one on ARM
23:29:13 <GregorR-L> If you grab 0.7 and provide me with the output to the test compilation, I may or may not be able to port it :P
23:29:24 <GregorR-L> Actually, I have updated test compilation stuff, so I should send you that.
23:29:45 <{^Raven^}> the link is timing out
23:30:00 <GregorR-L> http://www.esolangs.org/files/bf/impl/
23:30:07 <GregorR-L> (Approximate link :P)
23:30:41 <Keymaker> yah, almost works
23:30:49 <GregorR-L> And the test stuff is accidentally discluded in 0.7.1, so use 0.7 >_> <_<
23:31:13 <{^Raven^}> hmm, too approximate
23:31:40 <{^Raven^}> got it
23:31:57 <GregorR-L> Oh, brainfuck, not bf.
23:31:59 <{^Raven^}> that site looks a bit like sange.fi
23:32:08 <GregorR-L> It's similarly organized.
23:33:07 <GregorR-L> Anyway, like I said, I have updated test stuff.
23:33:23 <GregorR-L> On some very RISCy systems, the included test compile may not provide enough info.
23:33:29 <GregorR-L> Or it may, who knows.
23:33:37 <GregorR-L> It was enough for SPARC, not enough for PPC.
23:33:44 <ihope> +[>+]
23:33:49 <{^Raven^}> You can write almost anything in ARM using only 12 instructions
23:34:08 * GregorR-L rewrites Linux in ARM using only 12 instructions.
23:34:27 <Keymaker> :)
23:34:52 <{^Raven^}> Debian (and NetBSD) has been ported to ARM
23:35:03 <Keymaker> what's this ARM?
23:35:08 <GregorR-L> And Familiar ^^
23:35:15 <GregorR-L> Familiar = great distro for my iPAQ :)
23:35:25 <GregorR-L> Keymaker: Advanced/Acorn RISC Machine
23:35:31 <ihope> I have two arms.
23:35:36 <{^Raven^}> http://arm.com
23:35:39 <GregorR-L> I have two arms and one ARM.
23:36:01 <{^Raven^}> ARM... the processor that is in about 95% of all consumer elecronics
23:36:02 <ihope> I do not have any shares in ARM.
23:36:47 <{^Raven^}> I'd have loved to have a couple of shares in them before Acorn fired its workstation division
23:36:59 <{^Raven^}> I'd be rish. Muhwahwah
23:37:06 <GregorR-L> It's always good to be rish.
23:37:29 <{^Raven^}> GregorR-L: depends where on Ringworld you are but it's expected nevertheless
23:37:34 <ihope> Kee!
23:39:28 <ihope> Or, more accurately,
23:39:28 <ihope> "kO"
23:39:28 <GregorR-L> Pronounced "koo" in Odikeh transliteration.
23:39:28 <ihope> Oh?
23:39:28 <GregorR-L> k is pronounced ... well, k. O is pronounced "oo" as in "tOOl"
23:39:29 <GregorR-L> Err, no it isn't, piffle.
23:39:41 <ihope> Oh, right.
23:39:42 <GregorR-L> O is pronounced OU is in yOUr
23:39:51 <GregorR-L> U is pronounced "oo" as in tOOl.
23:39:56 <GregorR-L> No it's not! GAH
23:40:01 <GregorR-L> I don't remember my transliteration :P
23:40:55 <GregorR-L> Yes, O is oo as in tOOl.
23:40:59 <GregorR-L> I'm just a dork :P
23:41:17 <{^Raven^}> GregorR-L: I'll get back to you another day re the proggy I have to be up soon#
23:42:06 * {^Raven^} ponders that he would have been 50% hte way through Demolition Man if he'd not delurked
23:42:23 <GregorR-L> So, delurking is bad :P
23:42:29 <{^Raven^}> generally
23:42:34 <ihope> Do these letters have names?
23:43:22 <GregorR-L> ihope: Just based on the sound. Vowel x is named xbe, consonant x is named xe
23:43:48 <GregorR-L> That's sort of an unofficial rule though.
23:44:02 <ihope> ...Vowel x?
23:44:38 <GregorR-L> a, e, i, o, u, A, E, I, O, U, r, l
23:46:08 <ihope> I doesn't see an x in there.\
23:46:19 <GregorR-L> -_-
23:46:22 <{^Raven^}> There is a very esoeric word in Essex (UK)
23:46:33 <GregorR-L> As in every vowel is named that-vowel-sound then be.
23:46:38 <{^Raven^}> ask - pronounced arxske
23:47:07 <GregorR-L> Where x is pronounced ks, that's arksske
23:47:11 <ihope> Ohh!
23:47:23 <Keymaker> :D
23:47:39 * {^Raven^} is unable to replicate the sound they make
23:47:42 <Keymaker> does it mean the traditional "ask", like "why do you ask?"
23:48:04 <{^Raven^}> Keymaker: yup, same thing
23:48:07 <Keymaker> ok
23:48:29 <{^Raven^}> Keymaker: but you do get people asking if they can 'axe you a question' occasionally
23:49:02 <GregorR-L> Oh, I get it - it's a combo of arsk, ask and aks.
23:49:32 <GregorR-L> arsk being the hyperrhotic way of saying it, aks being the long island way of saying it, and ask being the proper way of saying it.
23:49:44 <{^Raven^}> it's a combo of not learning english *and* a wierd (uneducated) dialect
23:49:48 <GregorR-L> Hah
23:49:54 <GregorR-L> Anyway, time for me to suddenly disappear!
23:49:54 -!- GregorR-L has quit.
23:50:58 * {^Raven^} should probably go too. he has to be nil-by mouth in 6 minutes and wants to watch a film
23:51:56 <Keymaker> heh
23:52:52 <ihope> Koo, voo, too, thoo, poo, goo, soo, doo, shoo, boo.
23:53:32 <{^Raven^}> ihope: removing poo was a good thing for all#
23:54:39 * {^Raven^} starts lurking again as he switches to (ahem) to watch a film
23:54:48 <ihope> To to?
23:55:20 <{^Raven^}> bye all, it'a been great to be back
23:56:25 <Keymaker> ta-ta
23:56:41 <{^Raven^}> for now :P
23:59:23 * {^Raven^} wanders off to watch Demolition Man whilst sneezing and pondering being nil-by-mouth because of the poking of needles in the morning
