00:03:17 <FireFly> Hrm
00:03:41 <ehird> I hope this ubuntu in a vm craps out soon
00:03:47 <ehird> I don't want to like it too much
00:04:00 <FireFly> Does anybody know how the sample data in wav files is created?
00:04:05 <ehird> pc
00:04:06 <ehird> pcm
00:04:50 <FireFly> Uh.. Bah
00:05:05 <fizzie> You can stick different kinds of data in a .wav, though.
00:05:21 <FireFly> I should've googled that.. I knew that I was using data type 1, eg. PCM >_<
00:05:23 <FireFly> yeah
00:05:47 <FireFly> Well, I'm going to generate the data, so I don't mind other types
00:05:51 <fizzie> Uncompressed .wav files are pretty simple, anyway.
00:05:55 <ehird> WHAT THE FUCK, I like gnome

00:07:08 <ehird> friend got that
00:07:14 <ehird> (not the author of that site)
00:07:46 <FireFly> ...it feels like generating wavs isn't really the primary use of JS, though
00:08:09 <ehird> fizzie: lolwu
00:08:10 <ehird> er
00:08:11 <ehird> FireFly: lolwut
00:08:37 <FireFly> Well, yeah
00:09:00 <FireFly> I though a JS sound editor would be cool
00:09:02 <fizzie> What is strange is: when BitsPerSample==8, wav file samples are unsigned bytes; but when BitsPerSample==16, the format seems to be signed little-endian two-byte integers.
00:09:17 <FireFly> I noticed
00:09:20 <ehird> FireFly: how do you embed it?
00:09:21 <ehird> data:?

00:09:32 <FireFly> I was thinking of base64

00:10:04 <FireFly> I base64'd it and played it with mplayer, seem to work
00:10:32 <FireFly> Some random chippy noise, but it does get the correct length/metadata
00:11:10 <oerjan> chipmunk noise
00:12:26 -!- AnMaster_ has joined.
00:12:32 <fizzie> The wigi says IE<=7 doesn't support data: URIs at all, and IE8 has a length restriction of 32k. That's very limitsy.
00:12:34 <oerjan> eek DST
00:12:47 <FireFly> IE is IE
00:13:12 <FireFly> Don't destroy my visions :(
00:13:20 <fizzie> The wikipedia article also has the following gem, in "advantages": "When fine tuning trafic volue: an embedded Base64 encoded image < 666 Byes of original data results in less then 866 Bytes Base64 data. This become more efficent then transfering this image + HTTP overhead (666 + 200 = 866 bytes)."
00:13:27 <fizzie> Very classy.

16:36:37 <AnMaster> warning: assuming signed overflow does not occur when changing X +- C1 cmp C2 to X cmp C1 +- C2 <-- I wonder how to interpret this one... for while(n--) where I know n is >= 0
16:40:37 -!- FireFly has quit ("Later").
16:40:59 -!- FireFly has joined.
16:50:01 <lifthrasiir> AnMaster: is that gcc warning?
16:51:03 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, yes
16:51:13 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, gcc 4.2 or later
16:55:28 <lifthrasiir> i don't know why... perhaps because n = <someexpr>; in the loop merges into condition check (just guessing)?
16:57:52 <AnMaster> hm no
16:58:07 <AnMaster> if (n < 0) {
16:58:07 <AnMaster> ip_reverse(ip);
16:58:07 <AnMaster> return;
16:58:07 <AnMaster> }
16:58:09 <AnMaster> and then later
16:58:13 <AnMaster> while (n--)
16:58:14 <AnMaster> stack_push(ip->stack, stack_pop(tmpstack));
16:58:18 <AnMaster> from my SUBR
16:58:30 <AnMaster> that causes the warning on the line with "while (n--)"
16:58:38 <AnMaster> n being a signed integer
16:59:18 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, it seems to work anyway, just a bit confusing
17:00:45 <AnMaster> X +- C1 cmp C2 to X cmp C1 +- C2 that would mean in this case (n--) != 0 into "n != 1-0"?
17:00:47 <AnMaster> err
17:00:50 <AnMaster> that makes no sense
17:03:39 <lifthrasiir> if (n-- != 0) transforms into (n -= 1, (n + 1) != 0) then it can be the case
17:04:00 <AnMaster> hm
17:04:02 <lifthrasiir> i don't know gcc's internal well but that's only possible interpretation
17:06:32 <AnMaster> well ok that transformation you suggested seem harmless in this case

17:30:31 <AnMaster> *((const v4sf*)(const void*)&fspace_vector_init));
17:30:36 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, lovely code eh?
17:30:38 <AnMaster> (not)
17:30:43 <lifthrasiir> heh,
17:31:00 <AnMaster> cast to void needed to shut up warnings about strict aliasing rules (they do not matter in this case)
17:32:28 <lifthrasiir> movntps is for copying aligned bytes? (i'm not good at x86 assembly)
17:33:23 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, WC is write combining too, and doesn't fill cache. Since I'm just space filling the static array for the commonly used part of funge space around 0,0 here...
17:34:09 <AnMaster> Move Non-Temporal Packed Single-Precision Floating-Point
17:34:13 <AnMaster> is what it stands for
17:35:18 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, I don't know if I told you, but I use a static array for the most commonly used area around 0,0 in funge space, then a hash table for storing stuff outside that
17:35:22 <AnMaster> this helped speed a lot
17:36:28 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, and basically, storing 2 MB of spaces in the binary wouldn't be sane, so I fill it at startup. -ftree-vectorise vectorised the loop, but it still caused lots of L1 and L2 cache misses. Using a WC-style streaming store solved that.
17:36:32 <AnMaster> I still have pure C fallback
17:36:48 <lifthrasiir> good, i'm using just hash table (that's how the dict works in python) and i feel i have to add memory block for efficient storage...
17:37:08 -!- neldoreth has quit ("Lost terminal").
17:38:17 <lifthrasiir> in current pyfunge space operation accounts for 50% of time or so, which is a huge bottleneck
17:39:00 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, hum? I don't know how much this would actually help in python... Since some of this stuff is pretty low level.
17:39:04 <lifthrasiir> (other bottleneck being command dispatch, but it is plenty of slow codes)
17:39:36 <AnMaster> I can reason about C code and often figure out what is most effective, because C is a rather thin abstraction on top of asm really. While for a high level language that is much harder.
17:39:48 <AnMaster> Of course you should still use profilers in both cases :)
17:39:59 <AnMaster> (since you can't always reason about either C or asm)
17:40:28 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, hm gcc compiles my command dispatching into a big jump table basically.
17:40:38 <AnMaster> Which is quite ok, but could be faster
17:40:41 <AnMaster> brb phone
17:40:42 <lifthrasiir> AnMaster: i'm just trying to revise storage mechanism, since pyfunge once had big bottleneck related to sysinfo's boundary calculation
17:42:41 <lifthrasiir> with respect to this current design is very inefficient, since it uses direct coordinate as key (e.g. {(0,0): 64, ...})
17:45:41 <lifthrasiir> now pyfunge use caching and shortcut for sysinfo command, but it still takes too much time
17:46:03 <AnMaster> back
17:46:25 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, oh boundary? I store it as two pairs of x.y
17:46:28 <AnMaster> x,y*
17:46:43 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, used for wrapping too
17:47:16 <lifthrasiir> how to calculate exact boundary (as required for sysinfo)?
17:48:06 <ehird> *Main> let Cast a = Cast 3
17:48:06 <ehird> <interactive>:1:4:
17:48:07 <ehird> My brain just exploded.
17:48:09 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, well every time I write to funge space I have a couple of if that checks if bounds would grow. There is a known issue with shrinking bounds currently. But ccbi has that too
17:48:09 <ehird> I can't handle pattern bindings for existentially-quantified constructors.
17:48:11 <ehird> (real error message)
17:48:28 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, and thus mycology doesn't test it. in cfunge and ccbi bounds currently only grow
17:48:52 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, those if compiles down to a couple of cmov btw :)
17:48:57 <AnMaster> ifs*
17:49:07 <lifthrasiir> AnMaster: oh, it seems pyfunge is correct for that case ;)
17:49:30 <lifthrasiir> pyfunge also uses inexact (only growing) boundary for wrapping, only updates to exact boundary if requested
17:50:03 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, well a slow y would be a mess for HRTI test.
17:50:16 <lifthrasiir> and that update takes too much, that's why i consider new algorithm
17:51:00 <AnMaster> I guess if I had to scan I would scan inwards from the bounds in sysinfo to find the real ones, and while I was at it also update the wrap bounds to not have to scan as much next time
17:51:16 <AnMaster> + cache positions of non-space so I could just check next time if they were still non-space
17:51:31 <lifthrasiir> AnMaster: i know, and i ended up with doing update only if some put command can shrink the space
17:52:20 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, hm?
17:52:32 <AnMaster> didn't you say scan only in sysinfo not put?
17:52:59 <AnMaster> oh you mean invalidating cached inner bounds if a space is put in some edge cell?
17:53:04 <lifthrasiir> i mean invalidation
17:53:11 <AnMaster> hm
17:53:30 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, I assume you basically scan around the edge in a spiral inwards?
17:53:31 <lifthrasiir> (and sorry for slow answer, i cannot write so fast in english...)
17:53:53 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, heh I can write faster in English than my native language (Swedish). Too much IRC I guess...
17:54:13 <lifthrasiir> i think i have to do so but not yet implemented, i'm testing with possible solutions right now
17:54:18 -!- Sgeo has joined.
17:54:53 <ehird> AnMaster: swedish and english is trivial compared to korean and english I imagine
17:55:01 <ehird> er, I assume .kr is korean
17:55:11 <AnMaster> ehird, oh I didn't know where he was from
17:55:19 <ehird> yah, .kr = korea
17:55:22 <AnMaster> and I wasn't implying anything like that
17:55:23 <lifthrasiir> yes right
17:55:23 <ehird> AnMaster: whois magick
17:56:03 <lifthrasiir> but i don't think that shouldn't be hard besides from nuance and idiom differences...
17:56:19 <ehird> well, korean and english seem really far apart to me
17:56:25 <ehird> but then I only know the latter
17:57:41 <AnMaster> lifthrasiir, cache bounds, invalidate only when writing a space in an edge cell (remember fingerprint writes too!) sounds like the best way. Also update wrap bounds when you calculate new cached bounds if they grow inwards, will mean you won't have to go over so many spaces when wrapping possibly, thus reducing unneeded fetching of spaces when you are about to wrap after you have done an y
17:57:45 <AnMaster> if you see what I mean
17:58:29 <AnMaster> anyway such a thing may be in the next cfunge release too, but not this one that I'm about to make tomorrow
17:59:05 <lifthrasiir> AnMaster: i should deploy such solution someday but i have one homework due to tomorrow, two homeworks due to 04-02 etc. ;)
17:59:15 <AnMaster> ah...
17:59:54 <lifthrasiir> i shouldn't see mycology before 04-02... pyfunge thing took up my time too much (see hg log! ;)

19:34:15 <fizzie> Does that sort of stuff work with a real house-cell implementation?
19:34:23 <ehird> fizzie: what?
19:34:32 <ehird> Oh, you mean jewnicode haskell?
19:34:41 <fizzie> ∷ and → in place of :: and ->, yes.
19:34:46 <ehird> I think everything there works with GHC if you enable unicode apart from the funky one-character ∷
19:34:52 <ehird> Well, I think the arrows work.
19:35:01 <ehird> The greek stuff and the lambda does for certain.
19:36:10 <ehird> http://aralbalkan.com/2067 LOL WAT
19:36:14 <fizzie> MzScheme didn't even do λ without a macro.

22:19:33 <Deewiant> I find it to be.
22:19:48 <AnMaster> ehird, I have to agree with your sarcasm there
22:20:06 <ehird> I installed Ubuntu fully in ~20 minutes. It gets harder if you move data across, but not much: stick them on USB sticks or something.
22:20:06 <AnMaster> I never found OS installing (apart from windows) to be painful
22:20:14 <ehird> Or, y'know, have data on a different partition.
22:20:23 <AnMaster> yes windows is painful, a lot thanks to microsoft minutes being used
22:20:31 <ehird> <3 microsoft minutes
22:20:43 <ehird> AnMaster: Well I found installing xp in a vm quite easy.
22:20:51 <ehird> took about 40 mins
22:20:53 <Deewiant> You have to repartition a hard drive, which possibly involves getting another from somewhere, and I don't consider a freshly-booted OS fully installed yet.
22:21:02 <AnMaster> ehird, a pain with all the registering and activation thingies
22:21:05 <ehird> repartitioning a harddrive is trivial
22:21:07 <ehird> AnMaster: oh well yeah
22:21:29 <AnMaster> ehird, but windows/microsoft update is way more painful I agree than the actual install

22:23:04 <AnMaster> ah that
22:23:05 <ehird> it was left open to any networkable address
22:23:17 <fizzie> That net-messaging thing was in wfw3.11 already, although I think you had to run a program to make it work.
22:23:42 <ehird> AnMaster: loads of shady sites sold tools that basically mined for ip addresses then spammed them with that

22:33:18 <Deewiant> And you're wrong
22:33:24 <Deewiant> It doesn't matter, precisely because it is so quick
22:33:30 <ehird> ☺ So true
22:33:37 <Deewiant> If you get to the point that the wall clock time is 0.00s... you're done
22:33:48 <ehird> Deewiant: you’re done well before that
22:33:48 <Deewiant> All you have to do then is get a slower computer :-P
22:33:58 <ehird> btw, is anyone appreciating my “”‘’ quotes?
22:34:02 <AnMaster> Deewiant, cpufreq-set -g powersave ;P
22:34:03 <Deewiant> ehird: Well no, you're not 'done', you're just 'good enough'
22:34:03 <ehird> Because it’s quite a lot of work.
22:34:19 <ehird> Deewiant: This is a shit definition of “done”
22:34:26 <AnMaster> ehird, I didn't notice those quotes even...
22:34:30 <AnMaster> before you mentioned it
22:34:36 <Deewiant> By 'done' here I mean there's nothing conceivable left to do
22:34:39 <ehird> AnMaster: Crank up the font size :-P
22:34:48 <AnMaster> ehird, fuggly!
22:34:58 <ehird> …are you saying the quotes are fugly?
22:35:03 <ehird> Since when did good typography become *fugly*?
22:35:04 <AnMaster> ehird, no...
22:35:08 <ehird> Oh.
22:35:09 <AnMaster> large font size is
22:35:12 <ehird> Good. Now I don't have to kill you.
22:35:23 <ehird> AnMaster: You know, 16px on screen = 11pt in print.
22:35:35 <AnMaster> ehird, DejaVu Sans Mono 9
22:35:35 <ehird> You should probably not strain your eyes.
22:35:43 <AnMaster> ehird, it is easy to read on this screen
22:35:51 <ehird> Only because you’re used to it.
22:35:59 <ehird> Ah well, let me know when you go blind ey.
22:35:59 <AnMaster> ehird, no, because low DPI
22:36:02 <ehird> Oh.
22:36:04 <ehird> I feel for you.
22:36:05 <Deewiant> That's actually what I'm using too; I used to have it at 8 but I raised it to 9
22:36:16 <AnMaster> Deewiant, heh...
22:36:31 <Deewiant> Or actually hmm
22:36:33 <AnMaster> it was 10 before I got new glasses last time
22:36:35 <Deewiant> That's my size in Vim
22:36:37 <AnMaster> then I had to reduce it
22:36:44 <AnMaster> because it was so large
22:36:46 <AnMaster> ehird, ^
22:36:52 <Deewiant> urxvt says pixelsize=12, maybe that's 9
22:37:07 <ehird> AnMaster: I’m going to have to demand you use the new industry standard: ↑
22:37:12 <ehird> Deewiant: Oh I thought we were talking pixels.
22:37:21 <Deewiant> ehird: I'm fairly sure it's pt.
22:37:26 <Deewiant> The 9, that is, that Vim uses.
22:37:33 <Deewiant> This is 12px, anyway. :-P
22:37:33 <AnMaster> ehird, which open and free standard that is FSF supported and freely available are you referring to?
22:37:36 <ehird> 12px is… well, it’s still bad but I can make it out at least. ☺
22:37:53 <ehird> AnMaster: My butt’s newly decreed “IRC Unicode usage application”
22:38:12 <AnMaster> ehird, haven't even passed through ISO
22:38:21 <AnMaster> or IEC.
22:38:27 <ehird> AnMaster: Dude, ISO accepted Microsoft’s OOXML.
22:38:35 <ehird> And you still listen to them‽
22:38:40 <AnMaster> ehird, your butt == EMCA?!?!
22:38:43 <ehird> (See that? That’s an interrobang.)
22:38:47 <ehird> AnMaster: Mhm.
22:38:50 <fizzie> "URxvt.font: xft:DejaVu Sans Mono:size=8" nowadays here.
22:38:55 <ehird> Bit obvious isn’t it when you think about it
22:38:56 <AnMaster> ehird, I used a ‽ on irc recently
22:39:19 <ehird> http://site.ringce.com/products/slammer/slammer.html ← Oh fuck I need this a few months ago, pronto. No more baseline.png.
22:39:33 <AnMaster> baseline.png?
22:40:15 <ehird> AnMaster: a png of (baseline size in ems converted to pixels (the size when viewed on my display))px height and 1px width with one gray pixel at the bottom.
22:40:26 <ehird> So I can design to a baseline, see.
22:40:37 <AnMaster> ah
22:41:44 <AnMaster> what are they for? baseline product I heard of but I never heard of it in what I guess (since it is you) is typography
22:42:01 <ehird> AnMaster: The baseline is the line height, essentially.
22:42:08 <ehird> So: vertical size of font + line spacing.
22:42:13 <AnMaster> mhm
22:42:27 <AnMaster> ehird, I let LaTeX worry about that :D
22:42:45 <ehird> LaTeX doesn’t really have enough line height by default IME
22:42:53 <ehird> But then I'm a readability stickler to the max
22:42:53 <AnMaster> ehird, so change it
22:43:04 <AnMaster> ehird, I'd suggest 2-3 lines per page
22:43:05 <ehird> AnMaster: that’s not letting latex worry about it
22:43:30 <ehird> also, 1.75em line height works best IME
22:43:39 <ehird> so quite close to double spacing
22:44:38 <AnMaster> I like two columns per page layouts
22:44:52 <ehird> AnMaster: those are awful on screen, your eyes blit about so much
22:44:55 <ehird> in a book it works
22:45:08 <AnMaster> ehird, hm works well for me in either case.
22:45:30 <AnMaster> also
22:45:33 <AnMaster> eyes blitting?
22:45:35 <AnMaster> err
22:45:52 <AnMaster> I fail to translate blitting as in GPUs to eyes
22:45:54 <ehird> Moving quickly. You can gleek the meaning from context if you’re a native speaker.
22:46:02 <AnMaster> gleen?
22:46:06 <AnMaster> glean* even
22:46:09 <ehird> Gleek.
22:46:17 <AnMaster> and I'm no native speaker you know..
22:46:40 <ehird> Not my faul
22:46:41 <ehird> t
22:47:08 <nooga> but probably my english is even worse than AnMaster's ;]
22:47:43 <ehird> nooga: yes, well, I’ve tried to instill got vs has and suchlike in him so you can’t blame me
22:47:45 <AnMaster> ehird, yes it is. See *my* butt's newly decreed "IRC Accessibility and Internationalisation Guidelines"
22:47:49 <AnMaster> ;P
22:47:51 <ehird> the english lobe of his brain is immutable
22:47:57 <ehird> AnMaster: _|_
22:47:59 <ehird> That is
22:48:07 <AnMaster> hah
22:48:09 <ehird> (1) the symbol for “bottom” in computer sicence (really)
22:48:17 <AnMaster> ahahaha
22:48:23 <ehird> I’m not joking
22:48:24 <ehird> (2) An ASCII art picture of a butt, if you put parens around it
22:48:29 <ehird> (3) A middle finger sticking up
22:48:29 <AnMaster> ehird, I heard it before
22:48:35 <ehird> In short, 3 facets of relevance.
22:48:35 <fizzie> "This gubblick contains many nonsklarkish English flutzpahs, but the overall pluggandisp can be glorked [sic] from context"
22:48:38 <AnMaster> as funny every time
22:48:41 <ehird> fizzie: Exactly.
22:49:25 <nooga> erm
22:49:25 <AnMaster> fizzie, it is saying the line can be read even though it is confusing
22:49:27 <AnMaster> I think
22:49:32 <AnMaster> not 100% sure
22:50:19 <fizzie> ehird: Given the recent jew-knee proliferation, that really should've been ⊥.
22:51:33 <AnMaster> I wonder why wikipedia in general looks so bad in konq, most other sites work well-ish in it
22:51:47 <ehird> fizzie: I have a patent on the “jew” nomenclature for referring to Unicode thankyouverymuch.

22:51:54 <fizzie> I wonder how a CURLY LOGICAL AND (⋏) differs from your garden-variety logical and. You know, besides the fact that it's curly.
22:52:33 <Asztal_> It makes a nicer pattern: ⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏⋏
22:52:35 <AnMaster> fizzie, I would have assumed that curlyness was a function of font
22:52:52 <nooga> burp
22:53:45 <ehird> fizzie: I have a patent on the “jew” nomenclature for referring to Unicode thankyouverymuch.
22:53:49 <ehird> Also fuck my irc client
22:53:58 <fizzie> I've seen ≺ (U+227A PRECEDES) used, and that's pretty much a curly less-than. I've forgotten the context; it was some sort of ranking that wasn't really an ordering.
22:54:07 <ehird> what
22:55:33 <Asztal_> I'm confused as to the need for both ≸ and ≹.
22:55:44 <AnMaster> fizzie, ^ and > variants?
22:55:55 <fizzie> ehird: Yes, I saw that patent thing twice.
22:56:02 <nooga> >X:S
22:56:15 <fizzie> AnMaster: ∧, not ^.
22:56:25 <AnMaster> fizzie, not curly!
22:56:36 <fizzie> Oh. Well, I don't think there's a curly caret.
22:56:49 <AnMaster> fizzie, or ∧ but curly?
22:56:49 <fizzie> AnMaster: But there's ≻ of course.
22:57:30 <fizzie> There's also an extra-curly <, the ⊰.
22:58:13 <nooga> ?
22:58:16 <nooga> shit
22:58:22 <AnMaster> fizzie, the name for it?
22:58:31 <AnMaster> and extra curly ≻ ?
22:58:53 <fizzie> AnMaster: "precedes under relation". And similarly ⊱ for s/precedes/succeeds/.
22:59:05 <AnMaster> fizzie, what about downwards curly arrow?
22:59:22 * ehird network trouble
22:59:22 <ehird> s
22:59:35 <AnMaster> ehird, we haven't noticed anything...
22:59:40 <ehird> That would be the bouncer.
22:59:49 <ehird> ƨɛƽ
22:59:51 <ehird> What an odd key.
22:59:57 <ehird> Alt-shift-; produces №
23:00:02 <ehird> Which then, given a number, does that
23:00:05 <fizzie> LaTeX has \prec and \succ for the normally curly versions, but I'm not seeing the extra-crispy, I mean, curly ones, not even in the AMS set of binary operations.
23:00:05 <ehird> Except when it doesn’t.
23:00:10 <ehird> №2 = ƨ
23:00:16 <ehird> №4 = №4
23:00:22 <nooga> ekhm
23:00:26 <nooga> what's that for?
23:01:44 <AnMaster> ehird, AlgGr-shift-; == ˛ here
23:01:47 <AnMaster> dead key
23:01:52 <AnMaster> ę yes
23:01:54 <ehird> I don’t know!
23:02:14 <ehird> AnMaster: This is a “dead key”, sort of.
23:02:21 <AnMaster> ̇˙ ė
23:02:22 <AnMaster> yay
23:02:29 <AnMaster> ehird, AlgGr-shift--
23:02:30 <fizzie> My ˛ is not dead, but that's probably because of the nodeadkeys option.
23:03:04 <AnMaster> AltGr-n == n?
23:03:06 <AnMaster> huh
23:03:09 <ehird> Like how Option-e gives ´, but with an orange background, and pressing “e” after gets you é. But you can just left-arrow away from it.
23:03:09 <ehird> And it deactivates.

23:22:18 <ehird> http://packages.debian.org/unstable/admin/vrms
23:22:23 <ehird> fizzie: why did you install it
23:22:31 <ehird> I linked to it because it was ridiculously silly
23:22:32 <fizzie> ehird: "For the lulz."
23:22:47 <ehird> fizzie: well I hereby revoke your lulz relating to vrms
23:23:03 <fizzie> I think I disabled the cron job, though, so it won't email me every month, but I can still run it when I feel like it.
23:23:10 <fizzie> Quite a pile of non-free stuff.
23:23:26 <ehird> fizzie: Are you lucky enough to have a gfx card with decent free drivers?
23:23:27 <fizzie> Mostly it's -doc packages, though.
23:23:37 <oerjan> darn
23:23:37 <ehird> You’re part of a community of 4, I guess.
23:23:47 <ehird> oerjan: barn
23:24:01 <olsner> ah, the virtual richard m stallman
23:24:04 <fizzie> No; I have nvidia-glx, nvidia-glx-dev and four nvidia-kernel-* packages in the vrms list.
23:24:07 <oerjan> ehird: i am just amazed that vrms was about exactly what i guessed it was :D
23:24:22 <ehird> :-D
23:24:47 <ehird> fizzie: I wonder if you can buy a 100% free computer? LinuxBIOS and all?
23:25:16 <fizzie> But I have even more -doc packages: autobook (well, technically that's not -doc), autoconf-doc, automake1.9-doc, gcc-4.1-doc, gcc-4.3-doc, gcc-doc-base, gdb-doc, ocaml-doc.
23:25:27 <fizzie> I'unno, sounds unlikely.
23:25:42 <ehird> fizzie: Bloody GFDL
23:26:54 <oerjan> fizzie: why would vrms complain about -docs?
23:27:06 <ehird> oerjan: gfdl’s “invariant sections”
23:27:26 <ehird> They’re bits you can’t change; invented for emacs so that nobody could remove RMS’s masturbatory philosophical sludge.
23:27:36 <ehird> (aka the free software manifesto)
23:27:48 <ehird> This is, of course, non-free.

23:33:50 <oerjan> since the other direction changes weekday instead of turning it backwards
23:34:50 <oerjan> hm maybe 24 hours backwards is easier
23:36:16 <oerjan> i wonder if this somehow happened when i changed to DST. it cannot have been this way for the whole month because i didn't miss my dentist's appointment...

23:45:01 <fizzie> «I prefer quotes like this, mainly to be contrary.»
23:45:16 <ehird> Asztal_: Dude, your quotes got enlarged with silicone.
23:45:20 <ehird> That’s fucked up.
23:46:50 <fizzie> Also, »+« is a Perl 6 operator: (1,1,2,3,5) »+« (1,2,3,5,8); # (2,3,5,8,13)
23:46:54 <ehird> Yep
23:46:56 <oerjan> « » are fine
23:47:05 <ehird> fizzie: isn't it »anything«
23:47:17 <fizzie> Maybe not exactly anything, but most things, certainly.
23:47:17 <ehird> meaning “emulation of vector operation”, I guess.
23:47:22 <ehird> fizzie: any operator
23:47:38 <ehird> I think the syntax is »op«
23:47:48 <fizzie> I don't think you can use the hyper operator with ?? ::, for example.
23:47:55 <ehird> Well, sure.
23:47:57 <ehird> Binary ops then.
23:48:32 <oerjan> <ehird> btw, is anyone appreciating my .... quotes?

23:53:47 <oerjan> it does
23:54:30 <fizzie> Well, if «this» is fine, then I prefer to quote with ‷(reversed and not) triple prime‴.
23:55:48 <oerjan> hm irssi got only half of that
23:56:11 <fizzie> There is no reversed quadruple prime, only the right way around. :/
23:56:13 <ehird> fizzie: “And”? There’s a unicode symbol for that.
23:57:02 <Ilari> Echoback (using Irssi here): < fizzie> Well, if «this» is fine, then I prefer to quote with ‷(reversed and not) triple prime‴.
23:57:05 <oerjan> at least two i would assume
23:57:28 <ehird> Ilari: that’s right
