01:05:05 <fizzie> I do grub2 nowadays (well, 1.97~beta4-1, says the package version), because Debian-unstable's "grub" package went and changed to that (with a pretty reasonable "we first chainload from grub1 so if it doesn't work your system isn't completely hosed" upgrade path), and I like playing with things, and it does seem to work just fine, despite any bloatsy.

01:07:32 <fizzie> Can't say I care terribly much about the boot loader since, like you sort-of implied, it's not like you spend a lot of time in it; so since it does what I want, I can't really see why to deviate from the distro-default choice.
01:08:14 <ehird> I was more investigating it as a distro-maker.
01:27:47 <Ilari> Wonder where people have gotten impression that secure password absolutely requires non-alphanumeric characters and case-sensitivity...
01:28:08 <ehird> Binary password.
01:28:12 <lament> it's just a good way to enforce non-dictionary passwords
01:28:13 <ehird> You can only use 0 and 1 in your password.
01:28:17 <Oranjer> haha
01:28:25 <ehird> It's not good, it's annoying
01:28:26 <augur> all passwords are binary!

01:28:55 <augur> with convenient shorthand for all 8-bit-long chunks :P
01:29:24 <pikhq> Just state that the password must have a certain amount of entropy.
01:29:26 <pikhq> ;p
01:29:33 <augur> oh no entropy D:
01:29:54 <augur> thatd be an interesting measure of a passwords acceptability

01:32:29 <Ilari> Have classes of characters, any character of that class causes entiere class to be added to base set size. Then compute log2 of base set size and multiply by password length?
01:34:18 <Ilari> Urgh... IDE error 51/54 on hdc (CD drive)... Looks like bad burn...

01:41:13 <zzo38> I have thinking about a computer pinball game that uses Forth and a few other things about it. It would have three scripts with Forth codes, one is te "hardware" script which defines the physical layout of the table and which are connected to what, the "software" script (which can include the hardware script with various words meaning different things now) which is like the CPU of the pinball table, and the "extra" script which defines things
01:41:22 <zzo38> :And then once sounds and decals images are added, you put everything together in one ZIP file. The compilations options is for giving names and default values of options that can be set by the user, and those values are then set as constants when the other scripts are being compiled.

15:57:26 <fizzie> An inverted spork.
15:57:50 <AnMaster> eh. fork and knife?
15:58:03 <AnMaster> hm no
15:58:17 <fizzie> No, that's a knork.
15:58:27 <Deewiant> Not a fife?
15:58:39 <fizzie> Deewiant: It doesn't sound quite as good, no.
15:58:45 <Deewiant> Meh.
15:59:00 <fizzie> Foon's also just an alternative name for a spork, but the way I learned it, it's the inverted variant.
15:59:11 <AnMaster> fizzie, I'm not sure the function "sporks" can be inverted. sporks⁻¹?
15:59:23 <AnMaster> well
15:59:33 <AnMaster> that would be (sporks)⁻¹ to make it clear
15:59:37 <fizzie> It's not the function, it's just the concavity of it.
15:59:42 <AnMaster> fizzie, sure is...

16:00:56 <AnMaster> fizzie, look: sporks = spoon∘fork
16:01:02 <AnMaster> well, it could be a relation too
16:01:53 <fizzie> Personally I've just considered a spork as the union of spoon and fork, with the order having no meaning.
16:02:48 <AnMaster> fizzie, hm possibly
16:03:23 <fizzie> Anyway, if spork = spoon∘fork, you certainly don't get spork⁻¹ out of any foon = fork∘spoon construction.

16:04:18 <AnMaster> hm
16:04:25 <AnMaster> no where does it says what a xapian thingy is
16:04:37 <AnMaster> not in the man page, not in the file itself
16:05:21 <fizzie> I'm not sure what the official name for the three-way blending of fork + knife + spoon (or spork + knife, or knork + spoon, or spife + fork) is; the figure caption for the wikipedia Splayd article does say they're known as "sporfes".
16:05:52 <AnMaster> splayd?
16:06:15 <fizzie> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splayd
16:06:30 <fizzie> It doesn't quite tell where the name comes from.
16:06:42 <AnMaster> oh hm xapian seems to be some sort of search db
16:07:07 <fizzie> "SPLAYD® utensils (after the verb to splay - to slant, slope or spread outwards) were invented in Australia by Bill McAurthur of Potts Point, New South Wales in the late 1940's."
16:07:14 <fizzie> Ah, on the company's "history" page.
16:07:51 <AnMaster> fizzie, easy to hurt oneself on those it seems
16:08:47 <fizzie> Sporfe-chucks, now that's a terrible weapon.
16:09:10 <AnMaster> fizzie, eh... how did you even come up with that idea
16:09:33 <fizzie> By extrapolating from "hurt oneself".
16:09:44 <AnMaster> eh
16:09:49 <AnMaster> some extreme extrapolating that
16:12:27 <fizzie> Alternatively maybe some sort of thing where you take a regular metal fork, knife (a sharp one!) and spoon, rotate each so that it is perpendicular to the two others (thank the spork for three dimensions!), translate so that the center-points of their handles overlap, and meld the things together.
16:15:07 <fizzie> (Then try to take it with you to an airplane.)
16:21:33 <AnMaster> fizzie, eh. "thank the spork for ..."?
16:21:41 <AnMaster> think?

18:12:11 <ais523> anyway, they fixed my computer problems by replacing the computer
18:12:16 <ais523> it turned out to be a bizzare hardware fault
18:12:28 <ais523> one of the temperature sensors was malfunctioning, so it kept thinking it was overheating
18:12:40 <ais523> and was spinning the fan up when off in an attempt to prevent the CPU catching fire
18:15:05 <AnMaster> ehird, I never said xkcd comic was funny
18:15:08 <AnMaster> just that the page was
18:15:12 <ehird> I was just noting.
18:15:17 <ehird> "incidentally"
18:15:18 <ehird> ais523: :D
18:15:20 <AnMaster> right
18:15:27 <ehird> shoulda just told it to HCF
18:15:27 <ehird> problem solved
18:15:46 <ais523> heh, you mean it wouldn't be trying to cool the CPU down on the assumption that the fire was deliberate?
18:15:48 <AnMaster> ais523, wouldn't that just require CPU or mobo replacement?
18:15:59 <AnMaster> I mean. that is where the sensors usually are
18:16:00 <ais523> AnMaster: yes, but they had a computer spare
18:16:02 <AnMaster> hm
18:16:03 <AnMaster> ok
18:16:10 <ais523> presumably they're going to replace the motherboard on the one they removed, and put it back into service
18:16:11 <ehird> ais523: either that, or at least it'd be cooling it for a legitimate reason
18:16:43 <ehird> wow, Windows 7's WordPad can open .odts
18:16:52 <ehird> i didn't expect that from Microsoft...
18:17:13 <ais523> it's probably using the Word filters
18:17:29 <ehird> I doubt it; bundling Office parts with Windows?
18:17:30 <ais523> Microsoft have complied with the letter of the OpenDocument standard for a few months now
18:17:32 <ehird> Microsoft would never do thaat
18:17:34 <ehird> *that
18:17:48 <ehird> .odt and .doc and .docx all suck just about equally, tbh
18:17:53 <ais523> although, it's in a way incompatible with most other .odt writers
18:18:02 <ehird> although .doc isn't XML, which makes it slightly less horrific
18:18:06 <ehird> isn't .odt a zip or something?
18:18:08 <ais523> and I'm not sure, I learnt how to process .ods by reading the file itself
18:18:09 <ehird> a zip with xml
18:18:13 <ais523> .odt's zipped xml
18:18:19 <ehird> yeah, .odt sucks
18:18:26 <ais523> the format's a pretty clear one
18:18:29 <ehird> zipped xml is the craziest file format imaginable
18:18:33 <ais523> and admittedly, that is the sort of thing XML was invented for
18:18:34 <ehird> isn't .doc pretty well supported nowadays, anyway?
18:18:39 <ais523> you should see the docs for .doc
18:18:41 <ais523> they're insane
18:18:50 <ehird> ais523: I imagine the same applies to .odt
18:18:59 <ais523> (also, .docx is a huge misuse of XML; XML done well is bad enough, XML done badly is even worse)
18:19:01 <AnMaster> ais523, is it public?
18:19:04 <ehird> does anything even do .odt properly apart from OpenOffice?
18:19:06 <ais523> AnMaster: it is now
18:19:06 <ehird> and maybe AbiWord
18:19:11 <AnMaster> mhm
18:19:17 <ais523> ehird: I heard KOffice does
18:19:26 <ais523> although, compatibility isn't all that good
18:19:41 <ais523> someone important in the OpenDocument committee did a compatibility test
18:19:44 <ehird> "Notepad, by the way, remains crap." — entire paragraph in Ars Technica's review of Windows 7
18:19:45 <AnMaster> who cares about that though. Mine are all *.tex
18:19:56 <ais523> and found that the major implementations, other than Microsoft Office, were about 80% compatible
18:20:06 <ais523> which is impressive from a programming standpoint but useless from a business standpoint
18:20:18 <ais523> Microsoft Office was 0% compatible, incidentally
18:20:22 <ehird> coooooool, windows 7 can boot from a .vhd
18:20:23 <ais523> for spreadsheets
18:20:26 <ehird> which is a Virtual PC VM
18:20:36 <ais523> because =2+2 from OpenOffice becomes a literal 4 in Excel
18:20:43 <ehird> cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
18:20:44 <ais523> which is a really insane way to interpret formulae
18:20:46 <ehird> ais523: heh
18:20:59 <ehird> that happens in the really really short K spreadsheet
18:21:09 <ehird> if you edit the formulae it saves it as a literal
18:21:12 <ehird> (but adding one line more fixes this)
18:21:13 <ais523> Microsoft claim that this meets the letter of the spec because formulae aren't standardised yet
18:21:18 <ehird> one or two lines, I forget
18:21:44 <ehird> guys! windows 7 can boot from vm images? isn't that really cool :|
18:22:12 <AnMaster> <ehird> coooooool, windows 7 can boot from a .vhd
18:22:13 <AnMaster> eh
18:22:19 <AnMaster> if it is a VM, what did you expect?
18:22:24 <AnMaster> or boot natively from one?
18:22:28 <ehird> natively
18:22:34 <ehird> you can just add it to the bootloader
18:22:43 <ehird> as in
18:22:46 <ehird> windows 7's bootloader
18:22:49 <ehird> uses windows 7's kernel
18:22:53 <ehird> to boot a virtual pc vm
18:22:57 <ehird> and that is AWESOME
18:23:11 <AnMaster> ehird, can the kernel be stored *inside* that VM?
18:23:15 <ehird> The images themselves can be either .WIM images (as used in Vista), or .VHD (as used in Virtual PC). The ability to use VHD images allows the same image to be used across both virtual and physical hardware. Using a VHD with physical hardware depends on a new Windows 7 feature that allows direct booting from a VHD file; as a consequence, only Windows 7 (and Windows Server 2008 R2) can be deployed in this way. Manually deploying VHD images is surprisingly si
18:23:15 <ehird> install an image into the VHD and then add an entry for the VHD into the boot menu using bcdedit. They are also supported using the updated Windows Deployment Services found in Server 2008 R2.
18:23:15 <AnMaster> or need it be outside?
18:23:23 <ehird> you can only boot windows 7 from it, though
18:23:26 <ehird> but it's still ccool
18:23:29 <ehird> AnMaster: it's a full HD image etc
18:23:34 <ehird> the windows 7 kernel supports being booted from a VHD
18:23:36 <ehird> *cool
18:23:39 <ehird> and the bootloader works with t his
18:23:41 <ehird> *this
18:23:50 <ehird> cooler if it supported other OSs, but still cool!
18:24:01 <AnMaster> ehird, yawn they are rather unlikely to support *.vdi though
18:24:17 <ehird> are you criticising Microsoft for not giving up their competitive advantage?
18:24:23 <AnMaster> ehird, no not really
18:24:25 <ehird> some people really do live in a fantasy world...
18:24:35 <AnMaster> becuase that would be insane
18:24:59 <ehird> exactly
18:25:05 <ehird> it's just neat

21:20:27 <Oranjer> did you see xkcd's tribute?
21:20:30 <Oranjer> :O
21:20:37 <Oranjer> they redid the site! yaaay
21:20:54 <ehird> Oranjer: gtfo xkcd lover (ok ok so the redesign is good)
21:21:19 <Oranjer> I just wish Yahoo would save the info
21:21:26 <Oranjer> there was lotsa crazy shit on their
21:21:30 <Oranjer> entire books
21:21:35 <ehird> yeah
21:21:37 <Oranjer> *there, ha!
21:21:38 <ehird> it'll still be on disk
21:21:40 <ehird> probably
21:21:46 <Oranjer> didn't you hear?
21:21:48 <ehird> we just have to get someone to buy them
21:21:50 <Oranjer> they're ERASING it
21:21:53 <ehird> no
21:21:56 <ehird> they're taking the servers down
21:21:57 <ehird> big difference
21:22:03 <ehird> they haven't said what will happen to the disks
21:22:03 <Oranjer> hmmm
21:22:12 <Oranjer> do you think they won't?
21:22:16 <ehird> think how long erasure would take, months!
21:22:20 <ehird> Oranjer: probably not just yet
21:22:33 <ehird> they don't need the disk yet.
21:22:34 <ehird> so it's a waste of resources
21:22:35 <Oranjer> I dunno, ehird, seems like a pointless gamble to me
21:22:44 <Oranjer> we should get the info now
21:22:45 <Oranjer> :O
21:22:47 <ehird> how is it a gaamble
21:22:47 <ehird> *gamble
21:22:55 <ehird> imposssible.
21:22:59 <ehird> *impossible
21:23:05 <Oranjer> as in, we're risking the info on yahoo!'s generosity
21:23:18 <Oranjer> that they won't erase it *whenever* without telling us
21:27:19 <fizzie> Given that both textfiles.com -- http://ascii.textfiles.com/archives/1961 -- and archive.org -- http://www.archive.org/web/geocities.php -- have been trying to capture everything they can, I doubt it'll be a total loss anyway.
21:27:29 <ehird> Haha, yeah right.
21:27:40 <ehird> The obscure, barely-linked-to pages, constituting like 90% of geocities, are what matters.
21:27:50 <ehird> They have scraped maybe 10% of Geocities together.
21:28:01 <ehird> Oranjer: it's not a risk because it's fucking THEIRS
21:28:08 <Oranjer> meh
21:28:09 <ehird> it's like saying
21:28:14 <ehird> i'm risking my livelihood on my good judgement
21:28:21 <ehird> well yeah, technically
21:28:25 <Oranjer> heh
21:28:25 <ehird> but that's a bit misleading
21:28:30 <Oranjer> hardly
21:28:33 <Oranjer> it makes sense
21:28:36 <Oranjer> we're not Yahoo!
21:28:54 <Oranjer> so our and Yahoo!'s interests never have to necessarily coincide
21:28:58 <ehird> hey
21:29:02 <ehird> someone mirror the BANCStar page
21:29:03 <ehird> ais523!
21:29:13 <ais523> ooh, ouch
21:29:16 <ais523> I don't have anywhere to host it
21:29:16 <ehird> i'll do it
21:29:19 <ais523> is it on the Web Archive?
21:29:26 <ehird> don't worry
21:29:28 <ehird> geocities isn't gone yet
21:29:30 <ehird> I'll save a web archive
21:29:35 <ehird> (safari's html+css+js+images+etc)
21:29:36 <Oranjer> yay ehird!
21:29:49 <ehird> nice to be able to click save and get a complete snapshot
21:29:55 <ehird> hey, what's the esolangs wiki article called?
21:30:11 <Oranjer> yay ehird! whoooo
21:30:28 <ehird> stop it Oranjer
21:30:50 <Oranjer> okay
21:31:17 <ehird> ais523: link me?
21:31:21 <Oranjer> :O
21:31:47 <ais523> there isn't an esolang article on BANCstar
21:31:49 <ais523> it was deleted
21:31:53 <ais523> due to not being eso
21:32:34 <ehird> ais523: link me to teh geocities; also that's a shitty reason
21:32:34 <ais523> ooh, deleted from Special:Undelete too
21:32:38 <ehird> huh
21:32:42 <ehird> probably graue on a power trip
21:32:48 <AnMaster> night
21:32:52 <ehird> anyway got the geocities link?
21:32:53 <AnMaster>
21:32:56 <ais523> http://www.geocities.com/connorbd/tarpit/bancstar.html
21:33:52 <ehird> Saved.
21:34:00 <ehird> Shall I save the whole http://www.geocities.com/connorbd/tarpit/index.html?
21:34:12 <ehird> And his var'aq page.
21:34:52 <Oranjer> fungot, you must help us preserve geocities' data!
21:34:54 <fungot> Oranjer: ( restarting fnord). if improved after it has been claimed in the first strip, and was about to translate this article into a redirect is a political theory very different from existentialism, most notably 30 seconds to mars, but also mentioned at the beginning explaining that passchendaele is now called passendale and ypres is now called drug of abuse was absolutely not about fnord drugs, save a few lines.
21:35:06 <ehird> argh
21:35:09 <ehird> ais523: http://www.geocities.com/connorbd/varaq/index.html
21:35:14 <ehird> so many pages
21:35:21 <ehird> could you wget --mirror?
21:35:27 <ehird> no point in perfectly preserving them, too much effort
21:35:30 <ehird> i guess i could
21:35:31 <ehird> heh
21:36:14 <ehird> oh what the hell
21:36:18 <ehird> BUUUUUUUUURN
21:36:28 <Oranjer> "too much effort"
21:36:47 <Oranjer> jesus fuckin' houdini that's the most common, most pathetic excuse I have ever heard

21:36:57 <Oranjer> oh, okay
21:36:59 <Oranjer> YAY
21:37:08 <ehird> someone might have the interp if it hasn't been saved and shit and who cares
21:39:04 <ehird> [[We’re pretty sure we have the first two completed. Again. WE THINK WE HAVE EVERY SITE FROM 1999 AND BEFORE ON GEOCITIES THAT WAS LEFT. (Update: My team is more inclined towards “most” than “all”.)]]
21:39:05 <AnMaster> ehird, I saved that iirc
21:39:07 <AnMaster> somewhere
21:39:13 <ehird> Okay, that is impressive.
21:39:14 <AnMaster> parts of it I should have at least

21:40:00 <ehird> http://ascii.textfiles.com/archives/1961
21:40:04 <ehird> I thought you said night, AnMaster.
21:40:09 <ehird> AND AN ARROW
21:42:00 <fizzie> It must've been some kind of styrofoam fake-arrow.
21:42:13 <ehird> I want a fake styrofoam arrow.
21:42:27 <Oranjer> how big would it be?
21:42:37 <Oranjer> enough to point out things from far away?
21:43:13 <ehird> It'd be fake sized!
21:43:22 <ehird> But, err, size of a kid, I guess.
21:43:39 <Oranjer> wow
21:43:46 <Oranjer> kid-sized fake arrow
21:43:58 <Oranjer> smaller than a spear, bigger than a foam finger-hand
21:44:28 <AnMaster> ehird, the arrow wasn't on the same line as the word night was it?
21:44:36 <AnMaster> so doesn't count
21:44:40 <ehird> AnMaster sure does like those mind gagmes.
21:44:43 <ehird> *games
21:44:51 <ehird> Oranjer: kid-sized; literally.
21:45:01 <AnMaster> why did I read "gagmes" as "goatse"?
21:45:06 <AnMaster> that just made no sense XD
21:45:22 <Oranjer> ew mind goatse
21:45:31 <AnMaster> Oranjer, yeah exactly
21:45:41 <Oranjer> Trepanation
21:45:54 <AnMaster> bbiab.

21:49:00 * FireFly[DS] found ` on the american qwerty layout
21:49:12 <Oranjer> heh, I did too, after a while
21:49:22 <Oranjer> unshifted ~
21:49:52 <FireFly[DS]> You're probably more used to that keyboard layout, though?
21:50:02 <Oranjer> american qwerty, yes
21:50:08 <Oranjer> heh, yes, I am an idiot
21:50:49 * FireFly[DS] wants swedish dvorak for this IRC client
21:52:19 <Oranjer> uh-huh
21:53:56 <FireFly[DS]> Yeah, since almost every homebrew uses their own virtual keyboard, few bothers to make it customisable
21:54:12 <Oranjer> wait what
21:54:17 <Oranjer> virtual keyboard?
21:54:21 <Oranjer> :O
21:54:28 <FireFly[DS]> Yeah, with stylus
21:54:33 <Oranjer> ohhh
21:54:34 <Oranjer> ha
21:54:38 <Oranjer> I wish I had a tablet thingy
21:54:39 * FireFly[DS] is on a DS
21:54:40 <Oranjer> :(
21:54:45 <Oranjer> whoa, that's cool
21:54:48 <FireFly[DS]> Hence the name
21:54:58 * FireFly[DS] has a borken computer
21:55:23 <Oranjer> oh, okay
21:56:02 <FireFly[DS]> Yeah, well, plugging it into anything seems to short-circuit the power source :\
21:56:19 <AnMaster> <HackEgo> 75|* ehird disables javascript <-- nice one
21:56:34 <AnMaster> and good that you finally saw the right path. The light side of the browser.
21:56:36 <Oranjer> :O
21:56:52 <ehird> the context was being on a 400mhz arm running firefox.
21:57:04 <ehird> also, this promptly completely broke reddit, so i reversed it.
21:57:09 <ehird> also, you added that quote yourself.
21:57:13 <AnMaster> * FireFly[DS] found ` on the american qwerty layout <-- why are you using that?
21:57:18 <AnMaster> oh [DS]
21:57:27 <FireFly[DS]> Yeah
21:57:33 <FireFly[DS]> homebrew and all
21:57:48 <AnMaster> FireFly[DS], oops broken computer
21:57:51 <AnMaster> laptop or desktop?
21:57:56 <FireFly[DS]> Desktop
21:58:01 <AnMaster> FireFly[DS], so new PSU then
21:58:04 <AnMaster> and internal such
21:58:08 <AnMaster> or possibly mobo
21:58:21 <FireFly[DS]> Well
21:58:32 <FireFly[DS]> It's supported until january
21:58:39 <AnMaster> FireFly[DS], so use the warranty then
21:58:44 <FireFly[DS]> So I'll just send it in
21:58:48 <FireFly[DS]> yeah
21:59:03 <AnMaster> otherwise I would suggest taking the old PSU you surely having lying around somewhere
21:59:08 <AnMaster> old mobo is harder
21:59:15 <FireFly[DS]> As soon as my father gets here
21:59:18 <AnMaster> FireFly[DS], oh?
21:59:22 <FireFly[DS]> Which is tomorrow
21:59:42 <FireFly[DS]> Well, technucally he owns the computer
22:00:04 <FireFly[DS]> And he has the warranty doxuments and stuff

22:44:49 * pikhq mutters about make and mk failing at quoting forever
22:45:28 <madbrain> how do out of order cpus work
22:46:45 <oerjan> by definition i should think they can work in absolutely any way _except_ the normal one
22:47:19 * oerjan realizes "out of order" could be ambiguous
22:47:35 <madbrain> eh
22:48:42 <madbrain> the technique I'm woring on is basically a huge stack based cpu, and it puts lots of operations in it and solves them "locally"
22:49:24 <pikhq> Why does mk not handle filenames with parenthesis in them... :(
22:51:06 <madbrain> for instance a*b + c*d is turned into a b * c d * +
22:51:23 <madbrain> and from there it can solve both a b * and c d * at the same time
22:54:37 <madbrain> obviously what limits this sort of stuff is (1) memory access dependencies (2) order of execution dependencies (3) feedback
22:54:54 <AnMaster> pikhq, I can't imagine such filenames...
22:54:56 <madbrain> (4) branches
22:55:04 <AnMaster> well I can. But not sanely
22:56:16 <ais523> AnMaster: CLC-INTERCAL used to have a space in its filename
22:56:17 <ehird> [21:49] pikhq: Why does mk not handle filenames with parenthesis in them... :(
22:56:18 <ehird> which mk
22:56:20 <ais523> which exposed a bug in mandb
22:56:26 <ehird> AnMaster: it's easy to imagine: NAME YOUR FILES WHAT THEY ARE
22:56:39 <AnMaster> hm would it be "glareee" or "glaree"?
22:56:44 <ehird> there are names of pieces of music with parentheses in them
22:56:45 <ehird> etc
22:56:49 * AnMaster looks at ehird and ais523
22:57:04 <ehird> just because you live in a world where manipulating files that aren't all-fucked-up-like-this is near-impossible doesn't mean everyone else does
22:57:12 <ais523> AnMaster: I've never heard of either word
22:57:18 <ehird> they aren't words
22:57:23 <ehird> I checked in the dictionary
22:57:27 <AnMaster> ais523, well it is obvious "glare" and "ee" ending.
22:57:33 <ehird> glarey.
22:57:36 <ehird> glary.
22:57:37 <ehird> i don't know
22:57:39 <ehird> it's a stupid word
22:57:42 <ais523> "glarey", I'd think
22:57:46 <ais523> but it's coined in any case
22:57:52 <AnMaster> hm
22:57:58 <ehird> seriously, don't use that word
22:58:01 <ehird> it sounds retarded
22:58:01 <pikhq> ehird: Plan 9 mk.
22:58:02 <AnMaster> ee as in "subjected to"
22:58:05 <madbrain> register writes can be dealt with by turning registers into buses... each read instruction waits until the bus becomes valid and then reads, each write instruction stops the bus from propagating downwards and replace it with their own bus, wait until their data is ready and then propagate downwards
22:58:09 <ehird> pikhq: which port? or are you using p9
22:58:14 <AnMaster> surely this is well known in English
22:58:18 <pikhq> ehird: plan9port.
22:58:28 <ehird> pikhq: define not handle; show your mkfile
22:58:30 <AnMaster> ais523, ehird: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-ee
22:58:31 <ehird> AnMaster: no?
22:58:45 <madbrain> memory writes can be dealt with in a similar manner but you have to wait at least for the memory address to be ready
22:58:47 <ais523> AnMaster: that doesn't work on general words
22:58:49 <ais523> and -y is more common
22:58:52 <AnMaster> ais523, it should!
22:58:52 <pikhq> %.ogg: %.flac oggenc "$prereq" -o "$target"
22:58:57 <ehird> glareee as in someone who glares?
22:59:01 <pikhq> ... Why did it omit a newline?
22:59:09 <ais523> oh, someone who is glared at
22:59:10 <AnMaster> <ehird> glareee as in someone who glares? <-- who is glared at
22:59:14 <ais523> the someone who glares would be a glarer
22:59:17 <ehird> right
22:59:19 <ais523> and "glaree" in that case, I usppose
22:59:20 <ehird> pikhq: sec, lemme look at mk
22:59:21 <ais523> *suppose
22:59:23 <ehird> man mk that is
22:59:37 <AnMaster> right
22:59:43 * pikhq is at least glad that mk handles *spaces* in filenames correctly
22:59:45 <AnMaster> why was that question so confusing?
23:00:02 <ehird> pikhq: firstly, why the quotes? iirc mk handles that for you
23:00:22 <ehird> also, `man mk` uses $stem.ext instead of $prereq/$target
23:00:25 <ehird> so I would try
23:00:30 <pikhq> ehird: It didn't handle that correctly.
23:00:31 <pikhq> Though that's because of /bin/sh's quoting.
23:00:32 <AnMaster> pikhq, I can't imagine anyone preferring ogg over flac :/
23:00:32 <AnMaster> well I can
23:00:35 <AnMaster> but I don't want to
23:00:37 <ehird> %.ogg: %.flac
23:00:37 <ehird> <tab>oggenc $stem.ogg -o $stem.flac
23:00:40 <ehird> pikhq: WTF
23:00:45 <ehird> pikhq: use rc not sh
23:00:49 <ehird> seriously, using mk with sh is just ugh
23:01:02 <pikhq> ehird: Alright, I'll change the MKSHELL.
23:01:03 <ehird> I CAN'T HEAR YOU
23:01:09 <ehird> pikhq: just omit it, it defaults to rc
23:01:12 <ehird> unless plan9port futzes that up
23:01:17 <AnMaster> ehird, true. I need *.aac for my phone's ring tunes
23:01:19 <pikhq> ehird: plan9port defaults to rc.
23:01:33 <ehird> right
23:01:36 <ehird> so just omit the MKSHELL
23:01:38 <pikhq> Erm. sh.
23:01:41 <ehird> oh
23:03:14 <pikhq> Now I get "missing closing quote", because of a single ' in the filename.
23:03:22 <ehird> pikhq: there is a way to do this
23:03:22 <ehird> sec
23:03:24 <ehird> lemme read man mk
23:03:41 <ehird> eh
23:03:44 <ehird> pikhq: try
23:03:45 <pikhq> Yeah, I'm aware there *is* a way. I'm just trying to figure that out. ;)
23:03:49 <ehird> %.ogg: %.flac
23:03:57 <ehird> <tab>oggenc '$stem.ogg' -o '$stem.flac'
23:04:02 <ehird> oh
23:04:02 <ehird> wait
23:04:04 <ehird> target and prereq are used
23:04:06 <ehird> ok then:
23:04:15 <ehird> ah, wait
23:04:26 <ehird> target/prereq are uesd when it doesn't use %s
23:04:29 <ehird> so yeah, my last attempt stands
23:04:36 <ehird> Regular expression meta–rules:
23:04:36 <ehird> ([^/]*)/(.*)\.$O:R: \1/\2.c
23:04:37 <ehird> cd $stem1; $CC $CFLAGS $stem2.c
23:04:41 <ehird> ok, I didn't know you could do THAT
23:05:03 <ehird> [[The recipes printed by mk before being passed to rc for execution are sometimes erroneously expanded for printing. Don't trust what's printed; rely on what rc does.]]
23:05:05 <ehird> just so you know
23:05:09 <ehird> (it doesn't go line-by-line like make)
23:07:02 * pikhq still sees "missing closing quote".
23:07:59 <ehird> pikhq: with my mkfile?
23:08:02 <ehird> paste mk's output
23:08:13 <pikhq> missing closing quote: I'm Waiting For.ogg
23:08:17 * AnMaster tries to understand the magnitude of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway_chained_arrow_notation and fails
23:08:23 * AnMaster looks in despair at oerjan
23:08:31 <ehird> AnMaster: you can't understand the magnitude ofa million either
23:08:35 <ehird> pikhq: hmm
23:08:36 <ehird> pikhq: i mean
23:08:39 <ehird> the command it prints
23:08:43 <ehird> worth having a look
23:08:45 <ehird> actually
23:08:47 <pikhq> That's the full output.
23:08:52 <ehird> oh
23:08:58 <ehird> pikhq: do you have it as a quiet target thing?
23:09:02 <AnMaster> ehird, If I understand that page correctly 3→3→3→3 is larger than Graham's number
23:09:03 <pikhq> No.
23:09:03 <ehird> if not, that's a mk error; not in the target
23:09:10 <AnMaster> *mind blown away*
23:09:11 <ehird> pikhq: paste the whole mkfile?
23:09:12 <ehird> or is that it
23:09:27 <pikhq> MKSHELL=$PLAN9/bin/rc
23:09:27 <pikhq> %.ogg: %.flac
23:09:35 <pikhq> <tab>oggenc '$stem.flac' -o '$stem.ogg'
23:09:36 <ehird> MKSHELL=rc
23:09:37 <ehird> FTFY :P
23:09:45 <ehird> pikhq: ok, and you're just doing "mk"?
23:09:49 <ehird> I mean, mk needs arguments...
23:10:11 <pikhq> mk Mmhmm/01\ -\ The\ One\ I\'m\ Waiting\ For.ogg
23:10:37 <ehird> hmm
23:10:44 <ehird> okay, so that's clearly a mk problem
23:10:50 <ehird> have you tried quoting it instead of doing \ all over the place :P
23:11:07 <pikhq> That's just the shell auto-escaping on tab completion.
23:11:19 <ehird> right, it looks like it's escaping fine
23:11:21 * oerjan cackles evilly
23:11:27 <pikhq> mk "Mmhmm/01 - The One I'm Waiting For.flac" ;# Equivalent, and results in the same.
23:11:39 <ehird> for shits and giggles move it to I''m
23:11:41 <ehird> and try then
23:11:45 <ehird> would be interesting to see how it reacts.
23:12:23 <pikhq> oggenc '$stem.flac' -o '$stem.ogg'
23:12:23 <pikhq> ERROR: Cannot open input file "$stem.flac": No such file or directory
23:12:23 <pikhq> mk: oggenc '$stem.flac' -o '$stem.ogg' : exit status=exit(1)
23:12:29 <ehird> oh, of course
23:12:34 <ehird> the quotes stop expansion
23:12:35 <ehird> drop them
23:12:57 <pikhq> Works.
23:13:09 <AnMaster> oerjan, about?
23:13:15 <AnMaster> oerjan, that notation?
23:13:23 <ehird> pikhq: what does mk claim the command as?
23:13:23 <pikhq> Apparently mk hates *quotes* in filenames. :(
23:13:26 <pikhq> Quoting is very hard, it seems.
23:13:36 <pikhq> oggenc Mmhmm/01 - The One I''m Waiting For.flac -o Mmhmm/01 - The One I''m Waiting For.ogg
23:13:39 <ehird> quoting sucks because stupid things are based on string expansion
23:13:47 <oerjan> AnMaster: actually i hadn't even looked at the page
23:13:49 <ehird> pikhq: put an echo before the rc command
23:13:53 <ehird> so that rc can tell what it actually sees
23:13:59 <ehird> well, that won't work perfectly, but
23:14:11 <AnMaster> oerjan, You know it since before I assume.
23:14:25 <oerjan> not particularly much
23:14:29 <AnMaster> ah
23:14:41 <AnMaster> oerjan, what do you normally work with then in math
23:14:46 * pikhq goes to get food; will be back
23:14:50 <ehird> AnMaster: not such large numbers.
23:15:05 <AnMaster> ehird, well ok. But there are lots of other things to select from
23:15:13 <AnMaster> I wanted something more specific :p
23:15:28 <ehird> ↑↑ notation?
23:15:31 <ehird> Knuth.
23:15:51 <ehird> I imagine oerjan just doesn't work in that pathological domain.
23:16:08 <AnMaster> ehird, indeed. Maybe in analysis?
23:16:28 <ehird> Didn't he link to one of his papers?
23:16:38 <oerjan> analysis yeah
23:16:48 <AnMaster> ehird, hm when was that
23:16:52 <AnMaster> ages ago I think
23:17:00 <ehird> Like a year or so ago. He should relink it
23:17:03 <AnMaster> yes
23:17:04 <AnMaster> agreed
23:17:10 <ehird> (I tried finding it but there are a TON of oerjan johannsenns)
23:17:16 <ehird> (I probably mangled his last name there)
23:17:21 <AnMaster> yes
23:17:31 <AnMaster> ehird, try ö instead of oe, Or maybe ø
23:17:32 <AnMaster> not sure
23:17:37 <oerjan> er a ton of Ørjan Johansens that are mathematical, i doubt
23:17:42 <ehird> Uh, yes, slashed o.
23:17:45 <ehird> I know that.
23:17:48 <ehird> I meant his LAST name.
23:17:51 <AnMaster> ehird, try /whois on oerjan
23:17:52 <AnMaster> it is there
23:17:59 <ehird> I don't... care...
23:18:11 <ehird> oerjan: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&client=safari&rls=en&q=Ørjan+Johansen+paper&aq=f&oq=&aqi=
23:18:14 <ehird> Good luck!
23:18:43 <AnMaster> oerjan, so link it
23:18:59 <ehird> LINK IT LIKE A GREEN
23:19:42 <oerjan> link shmink i don't even remember where they are
23:20:04 <ehird> "I don't even remember what they were about!"
23:20:19 <oerjan> well barely
23:21:04 <Deewiant> ehird: You're doing it wrong. http://scholar.google.fi/scholar?q=Ørjan+Johansen
23:21:17 <ehird> You're doing it wrong, because I can't read Finnish.
23:21:21 <ehird> Also, I didn't know thaht site even existed.
23:21:29 <ehird> Also, there are way too many results there to be him. Um, probably.
23:21:35 <ehird> I doubt "A multimedia approach to TV-media literacy" is him.
23:21:38 <Deewiant> It's in English for me, don't blame me for Google's inane auto-redirection
23:21:58 <ehird> "google.fi"
23:22:00 <ehird> Anyway, there's
23:22:01 <ehird> oops
23:22:03 <Deewiant> Yes, I know
23:22:06 <Deewiant> And it's in English for me
23:22:07 <ehird> Anyway, there's no way to figure out which are him
23:22:12 <Deewiant> And don't blame me, I got there from .com.
23:22:30 <ehird> So did your mom.
23:22:48 <Deewiant> If you have nothing to say then just SAY NOTHING
23:22:57 <ehird> Or
23:22:58 <ehird> I could say
23:22:59 <ehird> Your mom
23:23:07 <oerjan> dammit y key is randoly malfunctioning
23:24:04 <ehird> That's horrible. Are you okay? U, I hope you are okay. It would be very bad... argh, I don't use m much
23:24:08 <ehird> uch
23:24:33 <oerjan> incidentally all y papers were cowritten with either Richard Gjerde or Alf Rustad
23:24:57 <ehird> AKA
23:24:58 <ehird> Paul Erdos
23:26:08 <Deewiant> So the top three are probably all relevant
23:26:29 -!- Sgeo has joined.
23:27:28 <oerjan> the top tree ay vary by country, you know
23:27:31 <oerjan> *three
23:27:33 <AnMaster> hm
23:27:41 <Deewiant> Meh!!
23:27:45 <Deewiant> I hate localization
23:28:16 <AnMaster> oerjan, would G_64 followed by G_64 ! be larger or smaller than A(G_64,G_64)
23:28:16 <ehird> I HATE CULTURES
23:28:30 * AnMaster smiles an innocent smile
23:28:35 <ehird> I think AnMaster thinks advanced mathematics means inane questions about really big numbers and really exploding functions
23:28:45 <AnMaster> ehird, that is *one* part of it
23:28:53 <ehird> A obviously grows much faster than !
23:28:56 <AnMaster> an interesting part too. For some values of interesting
23:28:58 <ehird> and if you put one iota of thought into it...
23:29:17 <ehird> oh
23:29:19 <ehird> you mean
23:29:19 <ehird> wait
23:29:22 <ehird> followed by?
23:29:23 <AnMaster> ehird, well. I was wondering when repeated that number of times. But guess it doesn't matter...
23:29:24 <ehird> what does that t even mean?
23:29:27 <ehird> concatenating the digits?
23:29:33 <ehird> that's a ridiculous operation
23:29:35 <AnMaster> ehird, as in G_64!!! is three times
23:29:41 <ehird> oh
23:29:44 <oerjan> h interesting they're not all behind paywalls as i feared: http://www.mscand.dk/article.php?id=153 is readable
23:29:49 <ehird> well, A is biggter
23:29:52 <ehird> *bigger
23:29:56 <ehird> A uses G64 to grow G64 too
23:30:01 <ehird> in the same way that your ! thing does
23:30:07 <AnMaster> ehird, well true.
23:30:08 <ehird> but A grows faster than that, almost certainly
23:30:18 <ehird> so my answer to your inane question is that the latter is bigger
23:30:26 <AnMaster> ehird, wasn't sure when there were so many ! that was all
23:30:28 <ehird> oerjan: sweet, I don't understand a fucking word
23:30:38 * oerjan cackles evilly again
23:30:39 <ehird> AnMaster: you could have just worked it out from smaller numbers and used induction...
23:30:55 <oerjan> i guess there is readable and there is readable
23:30:56 <AnMaster> ehird, well true. Would have been a lot more work.
23:31:04 <ehird> for you
23:31:11 <ehird> it'd have been much less overall
23:31:16 <AnMaster> ehird, yes. That is what it alls boil down to
23:31:24 <ehird> Deep. Actually, no, not deep.
23:32:03 <AnMaster> all*
23:32:23 <ehird> *boils
23:32:55 <ehird> Brought to you by the Department of Not Noticing An Almost-Identical Typo in the Very Next Wor,d Incorporat.ed
23:32:57 <ehird> *Word,
23:34:01 <ais523> ehird: is not correcting the second typo intentional?
23:34:09 <AnMaster> yeah
23:34:15 <ais523> in that case, is either truly a typo?
23:38:21 <oerjan> mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
23:38:26 <AnMaster> ais523, artistic license
23:39:02 <AnMaster> and that is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artistic_license in this case
23:39:07 <AnMaster> not the software license
23:39:24 <AnMaster> for which the wikipedia article just differs by the case of one letter
23:39:32 <ais523> the name of the license was chosen deliberately, ofc
23:39:33 <AnMaster> (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artistic_License that is)
23:39:38 <AnMaster> ais523, yes indeed
23:40:01 <ais523> AnMaster: you're starting to sound worryingly like zzo38, stop it
23:40:11 <ais523> only zzo38 can be zz038
23:40:14 <ais523> *zzo38
23:40:21 -!- adam_d has quit ("Leaving").
23:40:21 <ais523> but, you're not all the way there yet
23:40:25 <AnMaster> ais523, what did I do now?
23:40:40 <ais523> AnMaster: that pointing-out of the case difference
23:40:46 <oklopol> wait is that oerjan's thesis
23:40:51 <oklopol> err
23:40:59 <oklopol> i mean that other thing
23:41:00 <oklopol> :P
23:41:46 <oklopol> no wait i'm going with thesis
23:42:02 <oerjan> oklopol: no, just one paper from it
23:42:53 <oklopol> oh, right, i just scrolled down and happened to see a 100
23:43:35 <oklopol> is gjerde your evil alter ego
23:43:42 <oerjan> no
23:44:01 <oklopol> good alter ego?
23:44:32 <oerjan> he actually changed into professional programming after finishing his thesis, actually
23:45:09 <ehird> is professional really needed? "i work in amateur programming"
23:45:24 <fizzie> Barely legal amateur programmers.
23:45:29 <pikhq> ehird: So, any idea why mk hates single quotes?
23:45:41 <ehird> pikhq: Sure — second
23:45:53 <oerjan> s/actually //
23:46:06 <ehird> Got an idea.
23:46:22 <ehird> fizzie: "barely legal" isamusing
23:46:23 <ehird> like
23:46:24 <oklopol> what's an mk
23:46:35 <ehird> oklopol: makefile processor thingy from plan 9
23:46:37 <ehird> like make but better
23:46:38 <ehird> boring
23:46:40 <ehird> you won't like it
23:46:55 <oklopol> would have to be a *lot* better
23:46:58 <oerjan> oklopol: we do, however, have the same tendency for puns
23:47:02 <ais523> better in what way?
23:47:06 <oerjan> good times
23:47:12 <ais523> the opposite of the way in which GNU make is 'better'?
23:47:17 <ehird> ais523: sends whole rule as a block instead of line-by-line
23:47:17 <oklopol> oerjan: so the thesis is probably full of them?
23:47:18 <ehird> a lot simpler
23:47:23 <ehird> you can quiet an entire rule
23:47:25 <oerjan> oklopol: alas i don't think so
23:47:27 <ehird> instead of tons of @s
23:47:31 <ehird> variable expansion is MUCH saner
23:47:31 <ehird> etc
23:47:34 <ais523> what if you want to quiet half a rule?
23:47:46 <ehird> echo out the commands you want to show :P
23:47:58 <ehird> ais523: since it sends everything out as a block, you can do conditions and shit without the \ mess
23:48:03 <ais523> I'm sure that can't be the right answer, that would suckmore
23:49:54 <ehird> the real answer is don't
23:50:24 <ais523> what about suppressing errors on half a rule?
23:50:27 <ais523> that's quite a sensible operation
23:50:42 <ais523> I suppose you could write || true on the lines in question, but it's not quite the same thing
23:50:44 <ehird> split your rule up; also, make doesn't have any special support for that
23:51:29 <fizzie> GNU Make does; that's the "-" prefix.
23:51:41 <ehird> Eh, whatever.
23:51:45 <ais523> oh, I didn't realise it was a GNUism
23:51:48 <ehird> mk sucks less for things people actually do.
23:51:58 <ehird> oh, it also handles C dependencies sanely, iicr
23:52:00 <ehird> *iirc
23:52:00 <fizzie> It might be a non-gnuism too, GNU make's the only thing I know to have it.
23:52:01 <ehird> or rather
23:52:03 <pikhq> Straight UNIX make really doesn't do all that much.
23:52:07 <ehird> you can inject stuff into the mkfile
23:52:08 <ehird> really easily
23:52:20 <ehird> it's been a while since I used it, though
23:52:26 <ehird> pikhq: sec
23:52:28 <ehird> allmost found something
23:52:35 <ehird> *almost
23:53:05 <fizzie> Though if the commands are just shell commands like in Make, I assume you could use something like a "|| true" suffix.
23:53:06 <ehird> http://code.swtch.com/plan9port/src/tip/src/cmd/mk/
23:53:06 <ehird> aargh
23:53:08 <ehird> so many files
23:53:14 <ehird> pikhq: feel free to dig in http://code.swtch.com/plan9port/src/tip/src/cmd/mk/ with me :P
23:53:22 <ehird> fizzie: Yes, the whole block is executed as a shell script
23:55:49 <ehird> bit of a wild goose chase this
23:56:12 <ehird> pikhq: by this point, I'd just write a python shell script with a function if modtime blah blah blah, system('...') and then like
23:56:24 <ehird> files = file.glob whatever
23:56:36 <ehird> yeah, it's a pain to recreate a make system but it's a few lines and this mk problem is truly puzzling
23:56:43 <pikhq> ehird: So, what you're saying is "someone needs to write a Make-like that doesn't suck."
23:56:50 <ehird> mk almost doesn't suck :(
23:56:59 <ehird> pikhq: the problem is that working with non-crappy filenames on unix sucks
23:57:03 <ehird> and make-like stuff is quite unixy
23:57:12 <ehird> someone needs to make a unix-like system that doesn't involve string interpolation...
23:57:31 <pikhq> Yeah, unixy string handling is quite bad.
23:57:50 <pikhq> Which is quite irritating, since UNIX does so damned much string handling.
23:58:57 <ehird> I was going to say something about it being such a shame that Unix is still being used by most people, but then I realised that most people use something even worse.
