00:03:03 <oerjan> um there are two?
00:03:34 <oklofok> two whats?
00:03:48 <oerjan> zeers with palindromes
00:03:59 * oerjan zees only ze fizzie
00:04:25 <oklofok> i'm talking about {fizzie, FireFly}
00:04:30 <oklofok> FireFly is also a zeer
00:04:48 <oerjan> but a bit short on palindromes
00:05:02 <oerjan> and z's for that matter
00:05:03 <ehird> z = sleep I assume
00:05:40 <oklofok> oerjan: nick palindromes are a temporary meme, please keep up.
00:06:08 <oerjan> yes, and you agree length 1 is short, right?
00:06:19 <oklofok> in fact i do
00:06:45 <oklofok> but sometimes i'm too stupid to realize other's aren't stupid, and explain myself.
00:06:52 <oklofok> *others
00:06:56 <oklofok> that was close :|
00:07:04 <oerjan> DARN
00:09:34 <oklofok> also the "oerjan: and z's for that matter" did kinda hint you didn't understand me.
00:10:40 <oerjan> well i didn't understand that part
00:14:01 <lament> how many notes does it take to have a melody?
00:14:36 <oerjan> 3
00:14:51 <ehird> I've seen 2-note melodies.
00:15:33 <lament> oerjan, ehird: Fight to the death.
00:15:45 <ehird> k
00:16:06 <oerjan> no way
00:16:16 <oerjan> ehird always wins those fights
00:16:34 <oklofok> the empty melody has no notes
00:16:50 -!- Dewi has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)).
00:16:57 <oklofok> it's used as the base case for many inductive music proofs.
00:17:52 <oerjan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4%E2%80%B233%E2%80%B3
00:18:08 <oklofok> oh that thing
00:18:46 <oklofok> the point of that was not to play the empty melody, he had some ridiculous idea about using the audience as a modern music instrument
00:18:54 <oklofok> afaik, guess i could just read it
00:20:39 <oklofok> yeah that's the idea
00:20:53 <oklofok> stupid non-mathematical stupidity
00:20:55 <oklofok> sleep ->
00:21:16 <lament> i postulate that 4'33" only qualifies as music if you're fucked up in the head.
00:23:37 <oerjan> i hear - notes -
00:24:37 <ehird> I like 4'33".
00:33:36 <lament> it's better than most rap
00:34:13 <ehird> it's better than most music, as there's infinite music.
00:34:23 <lament> prove.
00:35:00 <ehird> lament: one note played once. one note played twice.
00:35:02 <ehird> repeat forever.
00:35:11 <ehird> there you go. a tiny segment of the infinite music that exists.
00:35:13 <lament> that's not music, that's a bunch of notes.
00:35:21 <ehird> s/one note/one melody/.
00:35:58 <lament> 1) is the same melody played 2398475987897 times really "music"?
00:36:14 <lament> 2) is this music really different from the same melody repeated 2398475987898 times?
00:36:31 <ehird> lament: if we accept 4'33" as music (implicit in the 'better than most music' I said), then it's still music if repeated for any amount

00:46:31 <lament> ehird: you are so brainwashed.
00:46:34 <lament> ehird: you're part of the haskell cult.
00:48:15 <lament> ehird: also your argument strategy is peculiar to say the least
00:48:31 <ehird> which argument
00:48:38 <lament> instead of responding, you just copy what i said to a bunch of unrelated people?
00:49:08 <lament> not only it's impolite, but it only proves my point
00:49:21 <lament> can you think for yourself and not bring the haskell cult into this?
00:50:22 <lament> xahlee, to be sure, raises some valid points in that essay
00:50:29 <lament> although he mostly talks about scheme and only mentions haskell in passing
00:50:59 <ehird> 1] IRC is public, I copied it because it was amusing 2] i see 3] I wasn't intending to discuss it 4] wrong 5] k
00:51:35 <lament> i have no idea what those numbers correspond to.
00:51:42 <ehird> lines.
00:51:47 <lament> which lines?
00:51:52 <ehird> yours
00:51:57 <ehird> from [00:48:38] <lament> instead of responding, you just copy what i said to a bunch of unrelated people?
00:52:25 <lament> ok.
00:53:49 <lament> keep in mind that, assuming you're brainwashed, it's very hard for you to detect that - that's the nature of brainwashing
00:54:31 <ehird> you're an excellent troll, lament. fyi I don't like haskell all that much.
00:54:48 <lament> i had years of practice.
00:58:09 <lament> also i kinda like xah lee's style

11:13:13 <oklopol> so ais523 i didn't hear your summer plans
11:13:22 <ais523> I didn't realise I had any
11:13:39 <oklopol> does your university stuff end during summer
11:13:46 <ais523> yes, it does
11:13:47 <oerjan> plans? who needs plans?
11:13:47 <oklopol> or is it 365/80 for you?
11:13:53 <ais523> but I find it hard to plan so far ahead
11:14:17 <oerjan> 80?
11:14:35 <oklopol> yes, i couldn't tell ppl my plans, but i can easily ask other people's plans :)
11:14:46 <ais523> 365 weeks a month, 80 days a week
11:14:47 <oklopol> oerjan: yes i predicted when he dies.
11:15:11 <oerjan> ah.
11:15:32 <ais523> the answer is I'm almost always working on something, but during the holidays it normally isn't university-related

15:56:30 <ehird> dunno
15:56:32 <ehird> we like it probably
15:56:36 <ehird> maybe not as much
15:57:04 <oklopol> well how about you know when it's solid

16:00:03 <ehird> not really
16:00:10 <ehird> by which I mean no

16:06:23 <ehird> oklopol: they're all batshit.
16:06:42 <ehird> well, the whole concept of philosophy is pretty much distinguishing the identical
16:06:46 <ehird> so ofc they're batshit
16:07:17 <ehird> oklopol: NaN is in ##christian
16:07:21 <ehird> of course the bot has to differ
16:07:24 <oklopol> yes, he's religious
16:07:28 <ehird> anything else would be admitting the nonexistance of the soul
16:07:44 <oklopol> admits it's an irrational belief though.
16:08:23 <ehird> man, ruralhack is retarded

17:03:30 <oklopol> i have my doubts.
17:03:32 <ehird> :D
17:03:42 <oklopol> i have a two hour argument this morning there
17:04:09 <oklopol> this dude was trying to convince me statistics are crucial for learning a language.
17:04:14 <ehird> XD
17:04:43 <oklopol> (wait a sec)
17:07:18 <oklopol> well, that's fine, except i was talking about how in my opinion it would make more sense to create bots that learn simple artificial grammars, and bots that use a simple-to-parse language and try to do something sensible with the semantics, instead of just starting to feed a generic AI statistics about english and trying to get it to speak it.
17:07:26 <oklopol> (i was interrupted, sorry.)
17:08:18 <oklopol> and told him about a hundred times i was not interested in having an argument about how children learn language, and that i agreed with him about the statistics argument anyway.
17:08:29 <ehird> :D
17:09:23 <oklopol> and the dude just kept on telling me how his child understood pronouns, and that convobots shouldn't be designed intelligently, but they should be made to understand any language, based on what they're given as input.
17:09:36 <ehird> oklopol: here's an artificial grammar for you:
17:09:38 <oklopol> and i told him i agreed with that as well.
17:10:01 <oklopol> when you add the fact i cannot stop arguments, because, you know, i'm retarded, it was one painful discussion.
17:10:28 <oklopol> missed the whole lecture, fortunately i learned after the lecture i had still understood more than others, it seems.

17:12:32 -!- sebbu has quit (Connection timed out).
17:12:35 <ehird> i haveno idea what that says
17:12:37 <ehird> but it looks nic
17:13:13 <ehird> "polget" is a quotation, ofc.
17:13:22 <ehird> [ofc it has first-class functions]
17:13:43 <oklopol> ofc
17:13:48 <ehird> quotations are verbs consisting of the composition of everything in the quotes.
17:13:54 <ehird> but they also reference the verbs inside.
17:14:09 <ehird> agelo was a name, so as a singleton it's (\x. x agelo)
17:14:15 <ehird> err, or rather
17:14:17 <ehird> it pushes itself
17:14:26 <ehird> na is 'says', I guess.
17:14:28 <ehird> it should be
17:14:30 <ehird> "polget" agelo na
17:14:33 <ehird> so you can compose "agelo na"
17:14:37 <ehird> to mean 'Agelo says...'
17:15:07 <ehird> oklopol: elegant?
17:15:33 <oklopol> so
17:15:34 <oklopol> err
17:15:40 <oklopol> (wait.)
17:15:53 <oklopol> first of all
17:15:59 <oklopol> i thought you said elephant
17:16:04 <ehird> sentences (a. b) just run a, clear the stack, then run b.
17:16:06 <oklopol> but umm elegant, let's see
17:16:07 <ehird> haha
17:16:26 <ehird> oklopol: quotations should nest, actually
17:16:33 <ehird> make it alternating " and '
17:16:36 <ehird> determined by whitespace
17:17:15 <ehird> "'"polget" "agelo na"' agelo na" agelo na
17:17:16 <ehird> ->
17:17:26 <ehird> ((polget) (agelo na) agelo na) agelo na
17:17:33 <oklopol> i want to make my cool convobot.
17:17:40 <ehird> which means
17:17:53 <ehird> Agelo says, "Agelo says, "'Polget' and 'Agelo says'.""
17:18:18 <oklopol> sure
17:18:30 <ehird> oklopol: put my grammar into it. and make it invent words for how people behave.
17:18:38 <oklopol> hah.
17:18:52 <ehird> like, it'd just recognize patterns in what people say, and learn them as words
17:19:02 <ehird> and if people said patterns along others, it'd associate them
17:19:07 <oklopol> i don't think i'd constrain its capability to invent words.
17:19:15 <ehird> wut
17:19:17 <ehird> that wasn't constraining
17:19:24 <oklopol> i mean
17:19:27 <oklopol> "yes"
17:19:29 <oklopol> ;)
17:19:32 <ehird> :D

20:07:13 <ehird> ;<
20:07:52 <oklopol> not sure i've even really used them.
20:07:56 <oklopol> well okay i have
20:07:58 <oklopol> but you know.
20:08:03 <ehird> wait, Asztal has
20:08:09 <oklopol> what hasn't he
20:08:10 <ehird> he ripped off my haskell lib and gave it tga :P
20:08:14 <ehird> ping to Asztal
20:08:33 <fizzie> I thought I'd read some tga files, but upon closer inspection it turns out those were tiff files instead.
20:08:37 <oklopol> Asztal: drag your asz in here and tal us about tga
20:15:03 <Asztal> hello
20:15:32 <ais523> oklopol: ehird's decided to do something with tga
20:15:40 <ais523> because he things libpng is too complicated
20:15:46 <ais523> *Asztal:
20:15:48 <ehird> no, I don't
20:15:49 <ais523> and now he needs your help, it seems
20:15:53 <ehird> I think that using a library is no fun.
20:17:52 <oklopol> indeed it isn't
20:18:04 <Asztal> my code for it was pretty short (I didn't bother with endianness) : http://paste.pocoo.org/show/104330/
20:18:49 <ehird> Asztal: ic, I didn't use pallettes
20:18:55 <Asztal> hmm, I suppose I do kind of bother with endianness
20:19:17 <ehird> but ... that's pretty much my cod
20:19:18 <ehird> e
20:19:23 <ehird> so wtf doesn'tit work o_O
20:19:39 <Asztal> I didn't do palettes either (not sure what that 32 is there for)

20:20:33 <ehird> Asztal: wait wait, some of those are _words_?

20:21:01 <Asztal> aha :)
20:21:05 <ais523> ehird: how did you not notice that?
20:21:10 <ais523> from the spec you linked me?
20:21:17 <AnMaster> reading TGA?
20:21:19 <AnMaster> how fun
20:21:23 <ehird> magic.
20:21:24 <ehird> AnMaster: writing.
20:21:28 <AnMaster> ah
20:21:31 <ehird> Asztal: fputs("\0\0\2\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0", file);
20:21:31 <ehird> _write_little_endian(file, img->w);
20:21:32 <ehird> _write_little_endian(file, img->h);
20:21:32 <ehird> fputs("\24\0", file);
20:21:33 <ehird> is my header
20:21:34 <AnMaster> ehird, png is a lot more interesting
20:21:37 <AnMaster> as in complex
20:21:38 <ais523> writing's easier as you don't have to worry about compression
20:21:42 <AnMaster> also why do you need to write tga?
20:21:45 <ehird> and I'm at a loss to why that doesn't work
20:21:52 <ais523> AnMaster: because he doesn't want to write png, yet wants graphics output
20:21:54 <ehird> AnMaster: I don't care what you think is interesting, and because I want to
20:22:06 <AnMaster> mhm
20:22:07 <ais523> I suggested RAW but he couldn't read it
20:22:11 <AnMaster> what is it that you are outputting?
20:22:19 <ehird> images
20:22:21 <AnMaster> ais523, ah, what about .rgb?
20:22:53 <ais523> AnMaster: never heard of it
20:22:53 <AnMaster> also a fun format is .xpm :D
20:23:01 <ais523> although it's possibly a different name for .raw
20:23:08 <ehird> the header is the right length, I checked
20:23:17 <ehird> so my values are screwed up somehow, or the data
20:23:20 <AnMaster> ais523, actually there are two, semi-incompatible variants of .rgb, flightgear used to use the more uncommon one
20:23:34 <ehird> more uncommon = less common
20:23:34 <AnMaster> which was a pain to save in gimp, you had to manually select type every time
20:23:51 <fizzie> Uh, that \24 there is octal, isn't it?
20:23:59 <fizzie> While you probably want 24-as-decimal.
20:24:00 <AnMaster> ehird, more common -> less uncommon?
20:24:10 <ais523> AnMaster: yes
20:24:18 <AnMaster> ais523, ok that is silly
20:24:22 <AnMaster> why not just use "more"
20:24:38 <ehird> fizzie: ups/
20:24:41 <ais523> I mean, they're both correct
20:24:45 <ais523> rather than one's better than the other
20:24:50 <ais523> I thought that's what you meant by the ->
20:25:01 <ehird> "more uncommon" --AnMaster
20:25:08 <ehird> "say 'less common'" --me
20:25:13 <AnMaster> ais523, ehird seemed to suggest I should use "less common" rather than "more uncommon"
20:25:22 <ehird> err, yes
20:25:23 <AnMaster> so I wondered if that was symetrical
20:25:28 <ehird> because more uncommon is a double negative.
20:25:35 <ais523> ehird: since when was "more" a negative
20:25:36 <AnMaster> should "more common" be replaced with "less uncommon"
20:25:49 <ehird> ais523: err, well, you know what i mean
20:25:52 <ais523> ehird: no I don't
20:25:54 <AnMaster> ais523, since ehird said it
20:25:55 <ehird> more uncommon sounds awkward.
20:26:04 <ais523> try "rarer", you can collapse it into one word
20:26:04 <ehird> less common is ... less uncommon.
20:26:05 <AnMaster> ehird, then you should use less uncommon too
20:26:14 <ehird> no
20:26:17 <ehird> you shouldn't
20:26:17 <AnMaster> in instead of more common
20:26:17 <oerjan> ehird doesn't do deMorgan's laws
20:26:40 <AnMaster> oerjan, indeed
20:26:58 <AnMaster> I'm surprised he don't know about that
20:27:18 <ehird> err, I'm talking about language.
20:27:21 <ehird> and what sounds awkward.
20:27:36 <oerjan> "awkward" sounds awkward.
20:27:43 <ais523> ehird: the problem is that nobody here agrees with you, not even the other native English speakers
20:27:58 <oerjan> and looks even worse
20:28:08 <ehird> ais523: you think "more uncommon" is better than "less common
20:28:09 <fizzie> Awkward sounds "to the direction of awk".
20:28:09 <ehird> "?!!
20:28:26 <ais523> fizzie: yes, it's the opposite of sedwards
20:29:21 <fizzie> I'd say "more uncommondededer."
20:29:57 <ehird> i asked someone who isn't on crack and they can confirm that you're all on crack.
20:30:14 <oerjan> but is "more uncommon" less uncommon than "less common"?
20:30:17 <ehird> wait, wait
20:30:19 <fizzie> Being not on crack, how would they know?
20:30:21 <ehird> "It might be LSD or heroin."
20:30:27 <ehird> ok, so there is SOME AMBIGUITY here
20:30:32 <ehird> but I don't think no drugs is a possibility
20:30:53 <oerjan> only heroes do heroin. such as the taliban.
20:31:06 <fizzie> Would think the taliban use talidomide.
20:31:17 <AnMaster> <fizzie> I'd say "more uncommondededer." <-- :D
20:31:24 <fizzie> Oh, wait, it's with an 'h' in english.
20:31:28 * oerjan should note he is on neither, he just hasn't eaten yet
20:31:36 <ehird> fizzie: wouldn't you say "more of them uncommons"
20:31:48 <fizzie> I just might, if you keep that up.
20:31:55 * AnMaster has eaten and is on no drug
20:32:17 <AnMaster> ehird, also I agree with ais523 on this question
20:32:40 <ehird> I could gather that, by the fact that you've both been arguing about it with me and saying the same stupid things.
20:32:52 <AnMaster> ehird, but you seem to think that "more uncommon" is more unenglish?
20:32:54 <ais523> ehird: nobody but you thinks they're stupid
20:33:05 <ehird> ais523: yes, well that's their problem.
20:33:20 <oerjan> AnMaster: you don't count, i saw you make a grammatical error just a while ago
20:33:22 <ais523> besides, "not uncommon" is more of a double negative than "more uncommon", and yet it's quite common
20:33:34 <AnMaster> oerjan, you mean "more unenglish"? that was just a joke.
20:33:38 <AnMaster> or what do you mean?
20:33:44 <oerjan> no, <AnMaster> I'm surprised he don't know about that
20:33:51 <AnMaster> oerjan, typo
20:33:59 <oerjan> that's what they all say
20:33:59 <AnMaster> missed es
20:34:07 <AnMaster> doesn't -es = don't
20:34:28 <AnMaster> oerjan, Actually you made an error too. You forgot to use a capital at the start of the sentence.
20:34:29 <AnMaster> :P
20:34:39 <oerjan> is this the tragedy of the uncommons, i wonder
20:34:48 <ais523> oerjan: I doubt it
20:35:10 <AnMaster> oerjan, Is that like uncyclopedia?
20:35:30 <AnMaster> I mean... wikipedia -> uncyclopedia, wikimedia commons -> uncommons
20:35:39 <AnMaster> yeah right probably that
20:36:28 <oerjan> use the destructive uncommons licence for things you want _no one_ to have
20:36:37 <ehird> creative/destructive?
20:36:41 <ehird> that is not very ... opposite.
20:36:54 <oerjan> it isn't?
20:36:54 <ais523> ehird: I think it is
20:36:57 <AnMaster> ehird, no that would be less uninlogical
20:37:18 <ais523> so... in ehirdland, "creative" is not the opposite of "destructive", and more is a negative
20:37:20 <ais523> what next?
20:37:26 <ais523> s/more/"more"/
20:37:38 <AnMaster> ais523, maybe he will say that uninlogical doesn't exist next?
20:37:39 <AnMaster> :D
20:37:46 <ehird> the opposite of creative would be uncreative. SHOCK HORROR.
20:38:04 <ais523> ehird: that's a negative, not an opposite
20:38:08 <ais523> what's the opposite of "less than"?
20:38:18 <ais523> somehow I think you're going to say "greater than or equal to", based on that reasoning
20:38:22 <oerjan> AnMaster: also, i don't do capital punishment sentences
20:38:37 <AnMaster> oerjan, uh...
20:38:39 <AnMaster> what?
20:38:50 <ais523> AnMaster: it was a pun
20:38:53 <AnMaster> oh
20:39:00 <ais523> "capital punishment" = "killing people to punish them for a crime"
20:39:04 <AnMaster> well yes
20:39:06 <AnMaster> I know that
20:39:07 <ais523> if you don't know that definition, the pun makes no sense
20:39:08 <fizzie> Those are opposites of different senses of creative; here's irrefutable proof from wordnet:
20:39:11 <fizzie> Antonyms of adj creative
20:39:14 <fizzie> 2 senses of creative
20:39:16 <fizzie> Sense 1
20:39:19 <fizzie> creative (vs. uncreative), originative
20:39:19 <AnMaster> ais523, I *know* that. And I don' get it
20:39:21 <fizzie> Sense 2
20:39:22 <AnMaster> don't*
20:39:24 <fizzie> creative
20:39:26 <fizzie> INDIRECT (VIA constructive) -> destructive
20:39:33 <ehird> see, indirect
20:39:39 <ehird> its not an opposite
20:39:40 <ais523> AnMaster: it's a reference to the capital letter complaint earlier that you made against oerjan
20:39:44 <ehird> it's the opposite of a related word.
20:39:46 <fizzie> The two senses being: 1. (13) creative, originative -- (having the ability or power to create; "a creative imagination"); 2. (3) creative -- (promoting construction or creation; "creative work").
20:39:52 -!- sebbu has quit (No route to host).
20:39:54 <fizzie> It's the opposite of creative in the second sense.
20:40:01 <AnMaster> ais523, oh I thought it was something far fetched based on *pun*ishment
20:40:02 <AnMaster> ...
20:40:26 <ais523> AnMaster: you were punning the wrong word?
20:40:31 <AnMaster> AUGH!
20:40:46 * AnMaster waits for a joke about type punning next...
20:40:54 <oerjan> AnMaster: well it was that too, obviously
20:41:03 <AnMaster> sigh
20:41:04 <fizzie> (Even the Principia Discordia uses the creative/destructive pair of opposites.)
20:41:08 <ais523> AnMaster: but my last comment wasn't even a pun, it was just designed to look like one
20:41:34 <oklopol> lol @ punishment :D
20:42:00 <oerjan> since i'm only halvway through my meal, don't expect my puns to make complete logical sense
20:42:04 <oerjan> *f
20:42:42 <oerjan> hm what is type punning
20:42:45 <AnMaster> fizzie, ah yes indeed
20:43:04 <AnMaster> oerjan, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_punning
20:43:09 <oklopol> meal male lame ...leam
20:43:28 <AnMaster> it is stuff like: *((float*)&myint)
20:43:29 <AnMaster> :D
20:43:36 <AnMaster> actually don't do that one
20:43:43 <AnMaster> there are less error prone ways to do it
20:44:04 <AnMaster> like unions, in practise every compiler supports "not accessing with same member" because everyone is doing that
20:44:29 <oklopol> your mom is pretty error prone
20:44:39 <AnMaster> that was very oko
20:44:40 <AnMaster> ...
20:44:52 <oerjan> what the heck does that have to do with the word "pun"
20:45:03 <AnMaster> oerjan, nothing
20:45:15 <AnMaster> oerjan, ask oklopol I guess
20:45:30 <oklopol> yeah askme
20:45:32 <oklopol> *ask me
20:45:32 <ais523> what are joke?
20:45:42 <oerjan> oklopol: what the heck does that have to do with the word "pun"
20:45:44 <AnMaster> ais523, ?
20:45:54 <ais523> AnMaster: it's a reference to something ehird said ages ago
20:45:59 <AnMaster> ais523, that sounds like more unbad grammar to me.
20:46:05 <AnMaster> that is more like ehird defines it
20:46:15 <oerjan> unbaddishment galore
20:46:25 <ais523> doubleplusungood grammar?
20:46:40 <AnMaster> ais523, 1984 reference right?
20:46:42 <ais523> yes
20:46:45 <ais523> anyway, I'm going home
20:46:46 <AnMaster> I haven't read the book but...

20:47:31 <oerjan> hm...
20:47:36 <AnMaster> eh
20:48:42 <AnMaster> err
20:48:47 <AnMaster> wikipedia just broke for me
20:48:48 <AnMaster> no CSS
20:48:57 <AnMaster> on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stride_of_an_array
20:49:14 <AnMaster> hm now it works

20:59:53 <oerjan> <ehird> [19:29:12] <kana> hello, what if time runs backwards and we feel it runs forwards ?
21:00:01 * oerjan has considered that before
21:00:07 <oerjan> or was it later?
21:04:05 <Asztal> I didn't see that one going!
21:04:28 <oerjan> I will
21:07:40 <GregorR> One can argue that in a global sense time doesn't "run" one way or another, but that we perceive time as running one way due to causality. So, if time was running the other way because of causality, we would perceive it that way because of causality; whereas if it "ran" opposite of causality by some definition, that's irrelevant because causality is how we describe the direction of time.
21:07:52 -!- ehird|away has changed nick to ehird.
21:08:20 <GregorR> That is to say, there is no reasonable definition of time for which that can be true.
21:12:06 <oerjan> i think it assumes there is some "real" time which our consciousness moves along, and asks whether this could correspond with backwards travel in the sense of physical causality
21:13:33 <oerjan> i.e. it assumes a soul/matter dichotomy or similar
21:13:36 * oklopol suggests reading the bible
21:13:50 * oklopol joined ##christian and #jesus today
21:14:13 * oklopol is trying new things... ircwise
21:14:14 <oerjan> another possibility to make sense of it: imagine if our universe is a simulation inside another, which is running backwards relative to the outer one
21:14:50 * AnMaster invites oklopol to ##flyingspaghettimonster
21:15:07 <AnMaster> oklopol, also wth "##christian" but "#jesus"
21:15:14 <AnMaster> the latter one should be ##jesus

21:15:38 <oklopol> so?
21:15:44 <AnMaster> oklopol, that is true
21:15:48 <AnMaster> we should do a group request
21:15:58 * oerjan swats AnMaster -----###
21:16:10 <AnMaster> then we could have cloaks like * [oklopol] (n=nnscript@esoteric/oklopol): Ville Salo

21:17:11 -!- oklopol has joined.
21:17:18 <AnMaster> oklopol, fail, ident is same
21:17:21 <AnMaster> still nnscript for ident
21:17:27 <lament> heh
21:17:35 <oklopol> i meant real name.
21:17:44 <AnMaster> * [nick] (ident@host): GECOS/Real name
21:17:44 <oklopol> AnMaster: yes, i meant real name.
21:17:50 <AnMaster> oklopol, then say that
21:17:56 <AnMaster> oklopol, also clog has it now
21:17:57 <AnMaster> I bet
21:18:00 <oklopol> i said you little pecker
21:18:09 <oerjan> it's been revealed before, right?
21:18:15 <AnMaster> * [AnMaster] (n=AnMaster@unaffiliated/anmaster): AnMaster <-- much better :D
21:18:18 <oerjan> or maybe not on channel
21:18:34 <AnMaster> I think you are correct Ørjan Johansen
21:18:35 <AnMaster> !
21:18:43 <oklopol> i don't care about people mentioning it.

21:18:48 <AnMaster> oerjan, indeed
21:19:12 <oerjan> would i choose a nick based on it if so...
21:19:19 <AnMaster> oerjan, nor am I, I just care that any causal observers won't find out with a random whois, my name is easy enough to find anyway...

21:24:08 <AnMaster> oerjan, hittade du på det?
21:24:24 <oerjan> självklart
21:24:26 <AnMaster> aha
21:24:35 <oklopol> hittade på vad
21:24:44 <oerjan> anagrammet
21:24:50 <oklopol> på nätet?
21:24:52 <AnMaster> åhå
21:24:59 <AnMaster> oklopol, err.. va?
21:25:07 <AnMaster> "hittade på" == made it up
21:25:18 <oklopol> lol
21:25:23 <AnMaster> oklopol, what did you think?
21:25:31 <oklopol> a nuance of find
21:25:38 <oklopol> rather embarrassing.
21:25:38 * AnMaster googles "nuance"
21:25:45 <oklopol> not that i know swedish, but still.
21:25:56 <AnMaster> oklopol, well "hitta" is "find"
21:26:00 <oklopol> i know.
21:26:06 <oerjan> it's not like you had to learn it in school or something
21:26:08 <oklopol> i thought it sounded a bit curious.
21:26:13 <AnMaster> ah
21:26:33 <AnMaster> well "hitta på <något>" == "make <something> up"
21:26:44 <oklopol> well i was pretty much a top student in all languages.
21:26:46 <oerjan> norwegian is "finne på", same structure and meaning of parts
21:27:02 -!- ehird has changed nick to ehird|away.
21:27:19 <AnMaster> oerjan, yeah I figure you Norwegians can understand Swedish better than we Swedes can understand Norwegian
21:27:20 <AnMaster> :/
21:27:33 <oklopol> AnMaster: please don't translate things twice to me after i fail.
21:27:57 <AnMaster> oklopol, you mean like "hitta på" <=> "make up"
21:27:58 <oklopol> i'm a sore loser especially when there's no competition.
21:27:59 <AnMaster> :D
21:28:10 <oerjan> yep, all swedish culture comes to norway, little goes the other way
21:28:31 <AnMaster> strange... why would it be like that, oerjan?
21:29:00 -!- ehird|away has changed nick to ehird.
21:29:39 <oerjan> not sure, maybe norway is smaller means we need to take from where we can find it
21:29:58 <AnMaster> oerjan, you have oil...
21:30:08 <ehird> <AnMaster> yes a mirc looser
21:30:09 <oerjan> i mean in population
21:30:12 <ehird> I get the feeling you've never used mirc.
21:30:12 <AnMaster> you lucky bastards, got lot of money from it
21:30:17 <AnMaster> ehird, I have...
21:30:24 <AnMaster> horrible

21:30:42 <ehird> uhh, who cares
21:30:46 <ehird> i'm talking about the actual client
21:30:46 <AnMaster> well
21:30:54 <AnMaster> ehird, the client is bad too
21:30:54 <AnMaster> IMO
21:31:13 <AnMaster> anyway I have no interest to discuss subjective stuff with you
21:31:20 <AnMaster> you just never change your mind
21:31:35 <AnMaster> (I don't often, but I sometimes do)
21:31:38 <ehird> yeah, how dare I not be convinced by amazing arguments like <AnMaster> yes a mirc looser
21:31:44 <ehird> i'm so stubborn
21:31:52 <AnMaster> ehird, it wasn't an argument
21:31:56 <AnMaster> it was a random comment
21:31:57 <AnMaster> ...
21:32:31 <oklopol> i'm at least one mirc looser than you.
21:32:50 <ehird> oklopol: maybe by amirc he meant american
21:32:58 <ehird> an american that is looser?
21:33:02 <oerjan> oklopol: yes, let's try and bury the quarrel in puns :D
21:33:40 <oklopol> yeah we can be like the messengers of luv
21:34:07 <oerjan> we have nothing to loose

21:45:46 <Deewiant> but yeah
21:45:50 <ehird> shush, there was string after it
21:45:53 <Deewiant> zero-terminated strings are idiotic.

21:54:17 <AnMaster> ehird, err, a lot of sites I do have normal logins on apparently also provide openid based on that login, Not my fault.
21:54:20 <ehird> everybody loves rotations.

21:55:09 <AnMaster> ehird, for example it turned out I could use https://launchpad.net/~anmaster as an openid... saw that just now
21:55:10 <bsmntbombdood> you can even put it on multiple lines and make it polyphonic
21:55:17 <AnMaster> same for several other sites
21:55:35 <ehird> AnMaster: you would be an idiot to use launchpad as an OpenID. who wants to delegate their online identity to them?

22:23:58 <oerjan> hah, i knew they were legs
22:24:03 <oerjan> no way you have two mouths
22:24:27 <AnMaster> heh
22:25:52 <AnMaster> ehird, idea: unless performance critical just flip the image afterwards?
22:26:03 <ehird> i'd prefer to output a correct tga
22:26:05 <ehird> not hard to fix
22:26:11 <ehird> <AnMaster> <ehird> what <-- didn't you once claim that was my typical comment. Fail.
22:26:19 <ehird> I've been saying "what" for years
22:26:36 <ehird> it doesn't mean "what?" it means "i seeeeeee".
22:29:05 <oerjan> oh
22:29:40 * oerjan notes certain things take on a completely new meaning then
22:29:57 <AnMaster> <oerjan> ehird: aw o+ au!j >|oo| hay+
22:29:57 <AnMaster> <ehird> what
22:30:00 <AnMaster> <ehird> vut
22:30:09 <oerjan> exactly
22:30:09 <AnMaster> ehird, no it means "what" in that context
22:30:25 <oklopol> ehird could've been confused by oerjan telling him he's dense.
22:30:37 <ehird> AnMaster: I know what I meant, thanks.

22:32:01 <FireFly> What's that? A gigantic swatter? :<
22:32:04 <ehird> a lisp cons cell. see http://labs.aezenix.com/lispm/skins/common/images/cons-chip-80.jpg
22:32:12 <FireFly> Ah, well, close one
22:32:15 <ehird> it can probably swat flies too, though
22:33:32 <oklopol> sleep ->
22:34:45 <oerjan> more like swat elephants
22:38:20 <Asztal> I think TGA has two bits in the header you can set to flip the TGA in x or y
22:39:06 <ehird> | 8 | 2 | X Origin of Image. |
22:39:06 <ehird> | | | Integer ( lo-hi ) X coordinate of the lower left corner |
22:39:06 <ehird> | | | of the image. |
22:39:06 <ehird> | | | |
22:39:09 <ehird> | 10 | 2 | Y Origin of Image. |
22:39:16 <ehird> | | | Integer ( lo-hi ) Y coordinate of the lower left corner |
22:39:17 <ehird> | | | of the image. |
22:39:18 <ehird> ?
22:39:19 <ehird> oh
22:39:20 <ehird> | | | Bit 5 - screen origin bit. |
22:39:30 <ehird> | | | 0 = Origin in lower left-hand corner. |
22:39:31 <ehird> | | | 1 = Origin in upper left-hand corner. |
22:39:32 <ehird> doesn't help for the other problem
22:40:08 <ehird> didn't help either
22:47:28 <AnMaster> ehird, a cons chip
22:47:28 <AnMaster> ?
22:47:30 <AnMaster> details?
22:47:36 <ehird> sure, it's a lisp machine
22:47:45 <AnMaster> ehird, wow, one cons cell per chip?
22:47:45 <ehird> an MIT CONS, to be specific
22:47:49 <ehird> AnMaster: er, no.
22:47:55 <ehird> that's just the logo of the machines.
22:47:55 <AnMaster> ah right
22:47:59 <AnMaster> I see
22:48:02 <AnMaster> righ
22:48:04 <AnMaster> right*
22:48:09 <ehird> hi comex
23:03:04 <FireFly> Has anyone here played around with WireWorld?
23:03:35 <bsmntbombdood> i want a lisp machine
23:03:42 <ehird> bsmntbombdood: ditto.
23:03:53 <bsmntbombdood> we should design one on an fpga
23:03:56 <ehird> fuck yes
23:04:02 <bsmntbombdood> that would be pretty fucking #esoteric
23:04:05 <bsmntbombdood> and awesome
23:04:07 <ehird> yes
23:04:12 <ehird> end the scourge of computing slums
23:04:13 <ehird> or whatever
23:04:25 <ehird> bsmntbombdood: y'know, now I cannot die until that is done.
23:04:31 <ehird> i have temporary immortality!
23:05:46 <oerjan> as opposed to spatial immortality
23:06:26 <bsmntbombdood> spatial immortality is provided by formalin
23:06:45 <oerjan> ah.
23:07:58 <oerjan> from this we conclude that the clue to full immortality is to find a way to transport formalin faster than light.
23:22:04 <bsmntbombdood> so how do you do gc in hardware?
23:23:13 <ehird> bsmntbombdood: iirc, you don't
23:23:20 <ehird> you offer the neccessary hooks for the language to do it
23:23:27 <bsmntbombdood> how do you facilitate fast gc in hardware
23:23:35 <ehird> bsmntbombdood: you don't actually run lisp on the hardware -- you still compile -- just it's an instruction set suited for lisp
23:23:41 <ehird> also, I'm not really sure
23:23:46 <ehird> hooks into finding objects, or something like that
23:26:10 <bsmntbombdood> you can probably make continuations nicer with hardware support
23:26:56 <ehird> yes
23:27:09 <ehird> bsmntbombdood: look up 'orthogonal persistence'
23:27:19 <ehird> it's totally suited to a lisp machine
23:28:52 <ehird> 14:56:22 <shrdlu-> chat bots are stupid
23:28:52 <ehird> 14:56:35 <shrdlu-> please stop talking about them
23:28:53 <ehird> 14:56:38 <shrdlu-> everyone
23:28:53 <ehird> 14:56:40 <shrdlu-> in the world
23:31:29 <bsmntbombdood> hmmm
23:31:46 <bsmntbombdood> if the operating system supports it, you can do copying gc without copying
23:32:10 <ehird> a modern lisp machine would totally make me stop hating computers
23:32:17 <ehird> goddamn x86
23:41:02 <ehird> so bsmntbombdood. have it on my desk by tomorrow
23:41:15 <bsmntbombdood> kay
23:41:20 <ehird> woot
23:49:08 <AnMaster> <oerjan> from this we conclude that the clue to full immortality is to find a way to transport formalin faster than light. <-- :D
23:51:39 <oerjan> It's just Logic, Sir
23:52:12 <oerjan> and a little bit of special relativity.
23:52:56 <AnMaster> O, Wise Oerjan, would you please describe the logical steps to teach that conclusion.
23:52:58 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit ("'night everybody").
23:54:06 * AnMaster prods oerjan
23:54:21 <AnMaster> s/teach/reach/
23:54:35 <oerjan> Why, to get full immortality we must naturally have both temporal and spatial immortality, as mentioned above.
23:55:03 <oerjan> Also, formalin allows us spatial immortality, also above.
23:55:21 <AnMaster> oerjan, yes, indeed, but you got temporal immortality due to wanting to complete a Lisp Machine
23:55:29 <ehird> ... that was me.
23:55:30 <oerjan> Not I
23:55:36 <AnMaster> well true
23:55:44 <ehird> also, it was temporary
23:55:45 <AnMaster> "you" in the generic sense here
23:55:45 <ehird> not temporal
23:55:47 <ehird> oerjan was punning
23:55:49 <AnMaster> ehird, oh right
23:55:54 <ehird> AnMaster: "you" cannot be generic there
23:56:01 <AnMaster> so where did you end up faster than light
23:56:04 <ehird> "but you gain temporal immortality" would be valid
23:56:09 <AnMaster> ehird, more less unyous
23:56:11 <ehird> AnMaster: #esoteric
23:56:38 <AnMaster> ah of course... #esoteric explains it
23:56:39 <AnMaster> ...
23:56:41 <AnMaster> duh
23:57:01 <oerjan> By special relativity, space can be converted into time by a suitable change of speed. For full conversion, however, faster than light travel is necessary. Q.E.D.
23:58:08 <AnMaster> oerjan, right
23:59:23 <AnMaster> ehird, you still like small talk right?
23:59:30 <ehird> Smalltalk, yes. small talk, no.
23:59:33 <AnMaster> Visual Smalltalk: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VistaSmalltalk
23:59:37 <AnMaster> basically
23:59:40 <AnMaster> -_-
