Go on, I'm waiting. 02:31:10 Also, Iostreams make i18n a royal *pain*. 02:31:31 In C, you would wrap the format string in a function that looks up the translation for the string. 02:31:42 In C++... You use printf if you want to do that. 02:32:06 (or GNU's asprintf, which is a printf that *works on iostreams*.

I would also have accepted "lunatic". 11:40:25 -!- rodgort has quit (Quit: Coyote finally caught me). 11:40:34 -!- rodgort has joined. 11:44:34 -!- scarf has joined. 11:47:23 Hi scarf 11:47:32 hi alise 11:48:13 sorry, haven't been doing too much esoprogramming recently, unless you consider Java eso 11:48:50 one of the things which comes with a job is not always being able to choose which language you write in 11:48:58 that's alright, I haven't been either 11:49:16 well, then again, I guess you could consider my language eso 11:49:25 so you're saying that Java is a good language know if you want a job? well, it got /me/ a job 11:50:03 :( if i had been there i'd go on a lecture about soul-crushing C.R.U.D. work with contradictory specifications to the student :D 11:50:06 that would have been fun! 11:50:24 I may be the most cynical person about programming jobs who has /never had a programming job/ 11:50:25 heh, well my job is teaching it to students 11:50:35 so I don't have the sort of over-enterprisiness issues 11:50:44 just, my heart sinking at people confusing classes and methods 11:50:51 yeah but it's basically like teaching applied satanism :P 11:50:55 hah 11:50:56 *haha 11:50:58 you can do it but... why 11:51:16 improving the average quality of Java programmers can only be a good thing, surely? 11:51:20 true. 11:51:30 anyway, have the computable reals: 11:51:32 data ℝ : Set where 11:51:32 ℝ : (f : ℚ⁺ → ℚ) 11:51:32 → {{ε₁:ℚ⁺} → {ε₂:ℚ⁺} → abs (f ε₁ - f ε₂) ≤ ε₁ + ε₂} 11:51:33 → ℝ 11:51:33 11:51:33 ι : ℚ → ℝ 11:51:33 ι q = ℝ (λ_. q) 11:52:13 yay, Unicode support 11:52:24 I think any language with a syntax like that is necessarily eso, including APL 11:52:32 also, http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=380731#15 (found via reddit) makes me amused 11:52:34 Support? I'm afraid I'm going to shift your opinion now; it's not optional. 11:52:41 Unicode or GTFO! 11:52:57 scarf: that bug report really irritates me 11:53:08 i am god, accept my holy package judgements 11:53:21 alise: it confuses me, but I'm not sure why I'm confused and get even more confused as a result 11:53:49 alise: do you consider support for the astral planes also necessary? 11:53:53 I really like the definition of computable reals 11:54:09 scarf: Well, it's only "required" insofar as the basic syntax and stdlib use it :P 11:54:16 oh, for the lang 11:54:20 a 11:54:22 *ah 11:54:31 Or, wait, does any of the actual syntax use it? The arrow is defined in the stdlib, albeit as a primitive 11:54:36 I thought you meant that Unicode support was necessary for everything, and ended up agreeing with you 11:54:39 Oh, of course, lambda 11:54:55 scarf: Well, that too of course 11:54:58 Aastral Plane is nice also 11:55:01 *Astral 11:55:06 in derl (my underlambda/underload interp), all I/O is in UTF-8, and it uses UTF-32 internally 11:55:27 hmm, I don't think I've ever seen the Unicode version of the astral planes written with a capital letter 11:55:32 Nor I, oh well 11:55:36 God I love dependently-typed languages 11:55:39 and there are 16 of them 11:55:42 Induction on the naturals as a recursion combinator? 11:55:43 Wyever not 11:55:50 *Whyever 11:56:25 alise: my PhD is turning slightly towards the idea of dependent types; dependent types is sort-of parametrizing types towards values, whereas what I'm doing is in the other direction 11:56:44 It's not sort-of, that's exactly what it is. 11:56:47 where types are parametrized by the number of times you're allowed to use a value of that type ever 11:56:55 alise: well, ok 11:57:01 The normal typed lambda calculus is types indexing on types, and values indexing on values. 11:57:06 With typeclasses, we have values indexing on types. 11:57:11 Dependent types give us types indexing on values. 11:57:18 Or, wait, typeclasses don't /quite/ do that. 11:57:19 But close. 11:57:33 Dependently-typed languages usually have types as first-class values, too, so we get values-indexing-on-types for free. 11:58:55 one thing I've been thinking about recently is designing my own VCS 11:59:05 I like how the (intensional) Axiom of Choice is in fact provable in intuitionistic type theory and thus most dependent langs. 11:59:10 I think I found a paradigm general enough to contain both git's model and darcs's model as special cases 11:59:16 Wonder if it is in Observational Type Theory (the underpinning of Epigram 2)? 11:59:23 alise: ooh, the axiom of choice 11:59:29 (Not the extensional axiom of choice, though.) 11:59:37 Extensional is the one that lets you do things like order the real numbers. 11:59:46 http://r6.ca/blog/20050604T143800Z.html 11:59:48 when you're in a CS department, you eventually find someone who makes you realise that it isn't actually obvious after all 11:59:52 You can have one without the other. 12:00:01 Which is awesome. 12:00:54 *intensional not intuitionistic 12:01:05 the intensional one is the one that's normally stated as the axiom, at least here 12:01:32 but then, we're normally dealing with sets, where the existence of quotients is taken for granted 12:01:38 so they probably come out equivalent there 12:02:02 yes it's causing me a bit of a crisis as I like quotient types 12:02:25 and Observational Type Theory which has a really nice definition of equality has tem 12:02:27 *them 12:02:33 also, that first link is a data: link 12:02:35 I love that page 12:02:38 but surely it cannot have extensional choice? 12:02:44 otherwise it'd have excluded middle 12:02:59 although it doesn't load in my browser 12:03:01 and you cannot give a value of either p or p -> Void for every type p... 12:03:09 scarf: he does tat a lot 12:03:13 *that 12:03:15 it's like footnotes but awesome 12:03:26 hmm, I wonder why it isn't working? loading it just gives me a blank page 12:03:29 his blog http://r6.ca/blog/ is very cool 12:05:22 http://r6.ca/blog/20091101T231201Z.html man I haven't read this before 12:06:28 hmm, loads in Epiphany 12:06:32 that's -webkit 12:07:17 That data: link was the strange in my Ubuntu 3.0-series Firefox too: clicking did nothing; opened in new tab, initially got a blank page with no special load indicators; finally got it open when I went to the location bar to press enter once. 12:07:30 WFM (safari) 12:07:35 -!- Gracenotes has quit (Quit: Leaving). 12:08:09 Given that it works just fine after the go-to-location-bar-and-press-return, I suppose there's nothing wrong with the link itself. 12:08:10 fizzie: ah, let me try that in FF 12:08:37 fizzie: yep, same results 12:08:54 that /is/ a weird bug, I wonder if it's an FF bug or an extension bug? 12:09:10 so, guys, what's your favourite definition symbol? 12:09:36 I like ≔ 12:10:43 I like that snowman guy. 12:11:26 har har 12:12:33 alise: = with a little word "def" over it is normally used when writing proofs here 12:12:45 I'm not sure how much I like it, but it's at least unambiguous 12:12:45 Yes, but you need a huge font size for that to be readable. 12:13:01 also, there's something very nicely pure about a language that can get away with using = for defined-equal 12:13:03 Plus, it is ugly; we rarely use words in mathematics, preferring symbols (including alphanumeric ones). 12:13:03 ≔ is nice, though in this font even that's just a = that has some sort of blobby things on the left end. 12:13:05 like Algol 68 12:13:19 Overlaying an English abbreviation on top of a very common symbol is just silly/ 12:13:19 or Haskell 12:13:21 *silly. 12:13:23 fizzie: Ditto. 12:13:33 it's visible as a :=-alike to me 12:13:37 scarf: It isn't pure, though, because that's not really what it means. 12:13:37 It's still better-looking than the ≝ though. 12:13:38 with less space between the : and hte = 12:13:43 alise: I know 12:13:47 I mean, that one's just a = with a larger smudge above. 12:13:48 fizzie: ugh, that's awful 12:13:53 At the very least it should be ≡. 12:14:02 Definitional equality, propositional equality, ... 12:14:07 if I zoom right in, I can see the word def 12:14:13 Spam, spam, equality and spam... 12:14:16 that's zooming via super-mousewheel, not by making the font bigger 12:14:41 you don't realise how much you were missing super-mousewheel until you get a system where it works 12:14:55 ctrl-mousewheell in os x. 12:14:57 I have no mousewheel, though 12:15:00 and ≡ to me implies congruence rather than definition 12:15:11 Er, right, definitional equality is =. 12:15:16 super-mousewheel works via the touchpad here 12:15:25 ≡ is propositional. 12:15:29 scarf: No mouse at all 12:15:30 ah, ok 12:15:37 alise: heh, you remind me of me 12:15:53 the mouse I have at the moment is basically broken, I need a new one / to stop using the mouse again 12:16:02 I mostly only use it for Enigma, NetBeans, and websurfing as it is 12:16:12 (NetBeans because it doesn't respond to keyboard shortcuts in a sane manner) 12:16:30 I have a mouse just no radio receiving thing for it. 12:16:48 As you know I'm not in my usual residence, so this stuff had to be picked up and the receiver was not. 12:17:01 Should be resolved by today with the amazing solution of "purchasing a mouse" :P 12:17:07 (putting one of the more useful key combos on alt-f1, followed by preventing the usual shortcut keys opening the only menu which has that option on as a command, means you have to use the mouse for some things) 12:19:10 haha: http://www.robweir.com/blog/2010/02/microsoft-random-browser-ballot.html 12:19:21 summary: Microsoft messed up the code for randomizing the order of browsers in their ballot thing 12:19:26 so not all the combinations have equal probabilities 12:20:52 http://www.browserchoice.eu/BrowserChoice/browserchoice_en.htm 12:20:57 What the fuck is a "green" browser? 12:22:10 * scarf follows the tell me more link 12:22:18 I bet they claim to be environmentally friendly, or something 12:22:39 wow, the PNG image on their home page is taking around 10 seconds to load 12:22:39 I thought that too but it doesn't seem so 12:22:46 I don't think I've seen an image load that slowly for months 12:22:50 I like how there's like a few decent browsers and then holy shit obscureathons 12:22:57 and last time, it was goatse, and I managed to click away before more than the top 20 or so pixels loaded 12:23:02 after guessing it was a goatse 12:23:08 so I've seen the top 20 pixels or so of goatse, but no more 12:23:57 http://www.morequick.com/IndexEn.htm <--- wow that's a bad homepage 12:24:35 and a bad browesr 12:24:41 looks like it uses IE's engine 12:24:47 see bottom left of screenshot 12:25:16 heh, that's the IE logo, you're right 12:25:40 yeah like Maxthon and shit they're all the same 12:25:44 take IE engine add shitty UI with tabs done 12:25:50 how can a website called morequick.com load so slowly? 12:26:19 also, the interface looks like it's trying to look like OS X and failing 12:27:04 * scarf clicks on the IE install link 12:27:09 Only the tabs 12:27:09 just because I'm curious as to what will happen 12:27:21 some exe 12:27:25 oh, I get an advert for Windows 7 12:27:28 that's actually sort-of clever 12:27:34 "Internet Explorer 8 is available only on PCs running Windows. Check out Windows 7, which includes Internet Explorer 8." 12:29:37 but I have win7 installed on here (haven't used it for months, though), so if I really wanted IE 8, I could get it like that 12:29:40 http://www.flickr.com/photos/38864566@N00/2479491895/ 12:29:40 this is sweet 12:31:52 ugh, not a still image? 12:31:56 I may have a look when I get home 12:32:09 It couldn't be a still image 12:45:52 I have this sinking feeling that I should do pattern matching on arbitrary function results. 12:45:59 (as opposed to just constructors) 12:46:43 *just constructors 12:47:31 pattern matching reminds me of the old joke about regexes ("now you have /two/ problems") 12:47:47 or maybe the statement about XML being like violence 12:48:02 it's one of those things where, if you start pattern matching you end up needing to use more and more and more of it 12:50:01 Actually pattern matching is just sugar for case expressions which is just half of structural recursion on inductive data types... but what do I know :P 13:05:12 -!- daef has joined. 13:06:49 daef: Are you dæf? 13:06:56 Or just deaf /and/ dyslexic? 13:08:07 hmm, I tried /nick æis523 but Freenode wouldn't let me 13:08:31 Er, isn't it pronounced ay eye ess? 13:08:36 alise: yes 13:08:43 it would be a different word if it were æis523 13:08:47 Right. 13:08:58 sort of like "oklopol" is not pronounced the same way as "oklofok" 13:09:16 alise: ACK 13:09:29 dyslexics are teople poo 13:09:34 daef: Oh, cute, you're one end of a TCP socket! 13:09:40 scarf: nickname = ( letter / special ) *8( letter / digit / special / "-" ) 13:09:54 fizzie: Pah! 13:10:03 fizzie: wow, I'm... amazed and happy that you actually looked that up 13:10:15 fizzie: So what nick does -i use on IRC? 13:10:17 and just as happy but more amazed if you typed it from memoryt 13:10:21 *memory 13:10:30 He looks everything up :) 13:10:39 He is an unstoppable Google machine 13:10:44 scarf: Sorry to deamaze you a bit; it was looked-up. Looking things up is pretty much what I do. 13:10:52 It was from a local file this time, though. 13:11:11 (Is "deamaze" a word?) 13:11:18 fizzie is just a gigantic lookup table 13:11:24 alise: i'm david => dave => daef 13:11:26 not deaf 13:11:31 that's all 13:11:36 Eliezer Yudkowsky isn't sure whether you're conscious, fizzie. 13:11:44 daef: Oh shush you. 13:11:51 I'm allowed to be ridiculous if I feel like it. 13:11:57 kk 13:11:58 alise: I'm not sure of that either; I can't seem to find any good results for it in Google. 13:12:37 You didn't find http://lesswrong.com/lw/pa/gazp_vs_glut/? 13:12:53 He concludes you're not conscious. Ha! 13:13:00 I have foiled you, GLUT! 13:13:17 Is it Schadenfreude if the other party isn't conscious? 13:14:12 I asked the bot what I am, and it just said I'm "a communist irrelevant to any discussion of economics". That wasn't so polite. 13:14:41 :D 13:14:44 alise: do you speak german? 13:14:57 snowplow, grassroots, mobile OE, MPSEB Indian utility co. meter reading, Delhi traffic police, Citibank demo documentation, Disprax (fake screen shots only), Jackson Builders, Aston Villa, NREGA employment census, smnp hardware monitoring, NDPL power, PG Call Home 13:14:57 daef: No, but Schadenfreude is an authentic English word, high-quality import. 13:15:01 kk 13:15:06 Hardly any scratches on the disk. Only slightly pirated. 13:15:28 scarf: I agree. 13:15:44 btw, the "gazp vs glut" thing confuses me, I couldn't get why you'd compare anything but SDL to GLUT 13:15:48 but it seems to be a different GLUT 13:16:08 alise: you can have fun guessing what that list is, btw 13:16:15 as can the rest of #esoteric 13:16:28 although, it's likely to be distinctive enough that Google would turn it up pretty quickly 13:16:59 scarf: GLUT = Giant Look-Up Table 13:17:06 yep, got that from the page 13:17:07 GAZP = Generalised Anti-(P-)Zombie Principle 13:17:17 I was thinking GLUT = GL Utility Toolkit 13:17:27 lol 13:18:19 you can see how confusing that acronym mismatch would make the page title 13:18:34 yes :P 13:18:43 But is a cube... CONSCIOUS???? 13:19:00 alise: as it's GLUT, the question would work better with teapots 13:19:09 I was trying to remember that shape 13:19:24 scarf: anyway - it's just a bunch of triangles 13:19:45 the funny thing is, that the Utah Teapot was accidentally drawn at the wrong scale originally (as in, vertical scale != horizontal scale), so it looks rather different in the demos than it does in real life 13:20:05 that you could also save in a giant lookup table 13:23:12 If the Utah Teapot is conscious, is it a Mormon? 13:24:35 alise: assuming that's an indicative rather than subjunctive if, yes 13:24:41 *rather than counterfactual 13:25:08 Prove that it isn't conscious, you nincompoop! :P 13:25:38 also, subjunctive is a perfectly acceptable term isn't it? 13:27:24 my favourite bit of the GAZP vs. GLUT article is "The obvious answer is that you took a computational specification of a human brain, and used that to precompute the Giant Lookup Table. (Thereby creating uncounted googols of human beings, some of them in extreme pain, the supermajority gone quite mad in a universe of chaos where inputs bear no relation to outputs. But damn the ethics, this is for philosophy.)" 13:27:43 trust Eliezer Yudkowsky to remark on how immoral creating a lookup table can be 13:27:55 Which leads me on to my next question: IS MULTIPLICATION CONSCIOUS???? 13:29:18 what's confusing me here is computational complexity 13:29:48 for instance, what sort of information density would you need to make a lookup table for a human brain? would it become a black hole under its own mass even if it filled the whole observable universe, for instance? 13:30:01 Oh, it would surely be ridiculous. 13:30:05 We have such a small universe. 13:30:48 gah, why can't you upvote IRC comments? 13:31:14 Oh, it would surely be ridiculous. [↑ 1 ↓] 13:31:16 We have such a small universe. [↑ 1 ↓] 13:32:05 hmm, this seems like a perfect feature for ickirc 13:32:28 use CTCP 13:32:33 along with the one that lets you swap nicks with arbitrary other people using ickirc, without notifying the channel (it relays all messages back and forth, etc) 13:32:36 and ofc you'd use CTCP 13:32:37 ^AUPVOTE messageid^A 13:37:29 Feh. 13:43:08 also, http://forums.thedailywtf.com/forums/t/15838.aspx is golden 13:43:30 you know the storm over the australian internet filter, and the person pushing it most filtering out "ISP Filtering" from his own tag cloud with client-side JS? 13:43:38 it's not the only ridiculousness found in the code, it seems 13:43:50 and the code itself was taken from a JS tutorial written by someone unrelated 13:43:55 which person puhsing it most? I am confused 13:43:56 *pushing 13:43:59 ah I see 13:44:16 his name is Stephen Conroy, but that doesn't seem particularly relevant 13:44:28 umm, the minister pushing it, that is 13:45:07 I just couldn't parse your sentence; got it now 13:45:25 uk i'net is censored too :/ just not as badly 13:45:56 alise: the fact is bad enough 13:46:01 Yes. 13:46:10 at least Phorm hasn't been switched on yet 13:46:14 I have plans for if and when it is 13:46:29 I have quite an idea of how it technically works, and it would be fun to mess around with it 13:47:10 Isn't its workings well-known? 13:47:13 yep 13:47:19 well, by people who care to find out 13:47:23 I imagine it isn't well-known in general 13:47:29 because most people haven't bothered to look it up 13:47:30 Phorm seriously freaks me. It's, like, not even your regular Orwellian evil under a corporate disguise. 13:47:43 It's a paper company: something you would expect to see in fiction, down to the logo, website, everything. 13:47:53 we can try things like creating websites where every link goes through exactly 4 HTTP redirects 13:48:03 It's like there is no cover over it other than the ludicrously unbelievable. 13:48:06 which complies with the RFC without Phorm, but fails to comply with it with 13:48:21 heh, howso? 13:48:29 alise: because it uses redirects on every page view itself 13:48:38 and it goes over the redirect-loop limit if you combine the two 13:48:41 right 13:48:54 So would a Phorm-condemned user actually see a redirect on every request? 13:48:57 yes 13:49:04 even if you turn it off, apparently 13:49:07 Hey, lets the ISPs up all their connection speeds and prices. 13:49:13 because the redirect's needed to tell whether it's turned off or not 13:49:18 Meet the new speed, same as the old speed. 13:49:22 Actually, why the hell isn't Phorm illegal? 13:49:37 Wow, Phorm apparently used to (under a different name) produce spyware. 13:49:39 alise: nobody's entirely sure; there's a rumour that the EU's planning to sue the UK for not calling it illegal 13:49:41 I didn't even know that. 13:49:46 (As in, real bona fide non-approved spyware.) 13:50:21 The UK Information Commissioner's Office has voiced legal concerns with Webwise as it is currently implemented, and has said it would only be legal as an "opt-in" service, not an opt-out system. 13:50:21 more fun: phorm impersonates websites to inject cookies into them 13:50:25 I can't remember why, btw 13:50:30 What is it with UK government positions' names and sounding creepy? 13:50:33 Information Commissioner. 13:51:01 alise: I was reading Phorm's website recently, apparently when they turn it on they're planning to redirect pages to ask people whether to opt-in or opt-out 13:51:09 * alise wonders what it is with Wikipedia describing itself and always using the third-person whenever it mentions it 13:51:18 Do they want people to read Wikipedia without the Wikipedia branding in the future or something? :P 13:51:24 It's awkward to read. 13:51:26 alise: there's a page about that 13:51:30 I know. 13:51:33 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?go=Go&search=WP:ASR 13:51:38 But I think the "neutrality" just makes the writing feel strange. 13:51:58 the idea's that the articles should have no idea that they're on Wikipedia, or indeed even on a website 13:52:08 so, say, you can make print versions more easily, and fork it more easily 13:53:19 Print can still say Wikipedia. Okay, forking, granted. 13:53:24 But still... 13:53:40 Is forking more important than not confusing people who read it? 13:53:50 My brain does a bit of a double take every time Wikipedia says "the online encyclopedia Wikipedia". 13:55:26 If Phorm is ever switched on I'll not use any ISP that has it. Even if that eliminates all UK ISPs... 13:55:43 At home, at least. 13:55:54 alise: personally, I think it would be fun to screw around with it for a bit before boycotting, especially as my internet connections are (legally) borrowed anyway 13:56:10 Yeah, but what about all my kiddie porn?!?!?!?! 13:56:13 :P 13:56:27 alise: I hope you don't view that sort of thing 13:56:29 Anyway I draw the line at every single HTTP request causing a redirect. 13:56:41 scarf: Must you take obvious ridiculosity as sincere? 13:57:05 alise: well, at least I'm consistent 13:57:14 and it sometimes produces absurd conversations, which can only be a good thing 13:57:18 scarf: Then you are not complete. 13:57:32 alise: I'm not even a type 1 reasoner 13:58:22 whether it's possible to be simultaneously consistent and complete depends on your other assumptinos 13:58:24 *assumptions 13:58:42 Well, I based it on the fact that you said you were consistent. 13:58:52 Presumably that means you've proved to yourself that you're consistent :P 13:59:21 you have to take into account the difference between me believing I'm consistent, me actually being consistent, and me believing myself to believe myself to be consistent 13:59:29 actually, I believe myself to be inconsistent in general 14:00:58 Quotient types are good. The extensional Axiom of Choice is bad. Anything resulting in a bad thing is bad. Quotient types result in the extensional Axiom of Choice. 14:01:41 (But then I don't really believe "quotient types are good" because of that reasoning chain. Perhaps I have some special kind of "undecided" belief that references reasons not to believe it, and pointers to ways to possibly modify the belief so that it is good.) 14:02:14 alise: your use of an in-context "references" followed by an out-of-context "pointers" leads me to believe you're attempting a pun 14:02:17 but I can't find one 14:02:19 maybe it was just a typo? 14:04:12 FYI, the world will end on Tue, August 31st, 4500AD a few minutes before midnight (local time). 14:04:55 this is a crazy and nonserious attempt to deduce a religion from Microsoft Outlook 14:05:19 scarf: no pun no 14:05:21 brb 14:07:32 * scarf reads about people advertising really expensive cables for audio; nothing new, except that they're Ethernet cables designed to transmit audio really, really perfectly or something 14:07:48 with a cable meant for analog, you can sort-of see how people could be fooled into it, but digital? 14:08:25 People don't know how technology works 14:08:29 Analog or digital 14:08:35 I suppose so 14:08:54 "if you do not follow the "directional markings" on the cables, your music will play backwards.

(My father's house is /also/ in a rather remote place, although not so much so; the nearest place with a supermarket only has one). I only got these because I needed 1, a keyboard with all the keys, and 2, a mouse that works. 14:12:35 (I already had them, I was just plugging them in and what not.) 14:13:14 So, yeah. 14:13:29 This keyboard could do with some weights to hold it into place. 14:13:35 The mouse isn't bad, though. 14:13:51 Not rubbery, sufficiently clicky buttons, and a scroll-wheel. 14:14:09 alise: I love the mental image of a keyboard blowing away in the wind 14:14:15 I am so fucking ill I want to puke 14:14:21 wait no I don't 14:14:21 MissPiggy: Then puke. 14:14:34 scarf: :-) 14:14:39 Those fold-up keyboards might be able to do that. 14:15:17 Ugh, I miss my media keys. (Just for volume control.) 14:16:22 alise: same here, although I bound them to super-combinations 14:16:23 But damn I'm glad I have a mouse. 14:16:29 in particular, I used to use play/pause a lot, now I use super-P 14:17:07 Rubber dome keyboards sure are mushy compared to the old scissor-switch. 14:17:15 But at least I don't have to fingernail keys I picked off now. 14:17:47 Irritating that Emacs cannot display characters I know I have the fonts for. 14:17:53 Even in those fonts. 14:18:13 For instance, ⊤ and ⊥ won't show, even with DejaVu Sans Mono. 14:18:25 WHO CARES 14:18:34 use T and F 14:18:37 MissPiggy: No? 14:18:40 I don't want to. 14:18:46 It worked before in Ubuntu. 14:19:01 alise: which OS are you using atm? 14:19:18 oh, OS X 14:19:20 OS X; the computer with Ubuntu on was too heavy and such to lug across, especially as it doesn't really like Wi-Fi. 14:19:27 (/ctcp version is so much faster than asking a person) 14:19:36 I have Ubuntu here, though. I could boot it up and use it now that I have a mouse. 14:19:46 But Linux on Macs is iffy at the best of times. 14:19:53 yeah :( 14:20:46 Besides, it seems to work alright in other OS X applications. 14:20:56 Bloody Emacs. Maybe a newer build would work. 14:21:33 I'd just use TextEdit, but I need \TeX-style-character-insertion. 14:21:38 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined. 14:22:33 yol have agda mode? 14:23:19 M-x set-input-mode RET TeX RET.

The syntax closely resembles that of Haskell but with important differences: 14:30:45 Ωmega is strict (Hugs is lazy); 14:30:45 Support for Generalized Algebraic Datatypes; 14:30:45 Ability to introduce new types; 14:30:45 Allows writing of functions at the type level. 14:30:52 Doesn't sound particularly dependent to me. 14:31:54 also, http://r6.ca/FewDigits/FPdag2008.pdf is officially my favourite introduction to dependent-types-as-logic ever 14:33:12 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_coffee_consumption_per_capita 14:33:49 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_alcohol_consumption 14:34:03 So what we can tell from this is that when Finns say "vodka" they mean "espresso". 14:36:01 hi alise 14:36:09 Whoa, that's unexpected. I've known that we're not exactly #1 when it comes to alcohol -- despite all the anecdotes -- but I had no idea about the coffee thing. I wonder if that is actually true-true. 14:36:12 alise, so back for good? 14:36:16 :) 14:36:30 AnMaster: Uh, what makes you think that? 14:36:42 The current situation just means I'm sure as hell going to tackle this before even considering returning. 14:37:02 Admittedly, if they have a weapon they'll use it now, and if they don't, I'm free. So I guess you're right, in some sense. 14:37:03 alise, hm? I mean back at home 14:37:04 This is Endgame. 14:37:05 Monday 14:37:11 Returning = to the unit 14:37:17 AnMaster: Oh you don't know the situation do you? 14:37:21 alise, no 14:37:22 well 14:37:27 I'll explain briefly in /msg. 14:37:30 I know what you mentioned before 14:37:32 alise, okay 14:37:49 afterwards I will tell about my very strange journey home today 14:37:55 very strange that thing with the bus 14:38:05 Was it a catbus? 14:38:27 alise, what is that? 14:38:34 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Neighbor_Totoro 14:38:41 Or, well, I guess http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catbus is more specific. 14:38:49 ah, not *quite* that strange 14:38:57 but I will recount it. 14:39:16 how can that possibly be not a lolcat reference? 14:39:35 To begin with it was normal, I took the articulated bus from university to the exchange (or whatever it is called, almost all buses pass through that place) 14:39:38 There's also that single-person kittenbus, that's maybe even more... that. 14:39:41 then I was to wait for another bus 14:39:44 still normal 14:39:45 but 14:39:52 then something unusual happened 14:39:58 A very articulate bus. 14:40:04 AnMaster: You TURNED INTO A WALRUS? 14:41:05 instead of the normal "front part low for handicaped/rear part high for packing lots of people" in compromise that that bus usually is, a long range coach thingy arrived 14:41:13 with the right bus number and everything 14:41:25 The SUSPENSE before you said that was INCREDIBLE. 14:41:30 but it got worse 14:41:31 wait for it 14:42:10 well of course I asked the driver and confirmed it was the right bus, and went on it. However later on I saw in the driver mirror the *normal* bus for that line right behind us. 14:42:24 This is so exciting I am literally urinating in my underwear 14:42:26 and when I stepped out of the bus when I arrived, and looked back at the bus I was in 14:42:30 it said "not in traffic" 14:42:31 on it 14:42:34 instead of the number 14:42:35 WHOA 14:42:48 all together I think this is rather strange 14:42:48 You just barely escaped a molestation affair thing, it seems! 14:42:56 fizzie, har 14:43:15 Though perhaps a bus is maybe not the most inconspicuous vehicle for that sort of thing. 14:43:21 fizzie, also the driver nearly made the wrong turn a bit before 14:43:36 AnMaster: once I went the bus which has the right number, but on the way home it took a wrong turn onto the very busy roads which don't go where I want and it was difficult to get home from there 14:43:48 MissPiggy, huh 14:43:51 now every time I go on that bus I am scared it might do that again 14:43:59 clearly this problem would not exist if we had trams 14:44:01 TRAMS! 14:44:06 MissPiggy, maybe it is like here, same number takes different variants of the rout 14:44:07 the perfect vehicle for the transportation of yams 14:44:08 route* 14:44:20 Speaking of buses, they're test-driving this four-door-pairs monster on the 550 line here: http://www.spheros.de/Upload/Images/Presse/Capacity_Aerosphere.jpg 14:44:37 bendy bus 14:45:03 There was something about there being more than one pair of steerable wheels in there. 14:45:04 there was a bit ofa fuss about them ni london because I think they can be a bit dangerous for cyclists 14:45:10 or maybe it was the other way around... 14:45:15 we should have buses that are entirely bendy 14:45:17 like they go through small towns sometimes, and sometimes they go by the 14:45:24 like, the whole bus is in the bendy bit 14:45:26 wheeeeeeeeeeeee 14:45:29 AnMaster yeah it was scary 14:45:30 The catbus is very bendy, I believe. 14:45:44 MissPiggy, well I'm used to this bus taking 5 different variants of the route 14:45:55 MissPiggy, at least I live close to one of the points it take for allmost all routes 14:46:04 Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn, wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn... 14:46:31 anyway another strange thing when boarding it was that it didn't come in to the station/bus exchange from the normal direction 14:46:52 usually it comes in from north, the exchange being the second station from that end of the route 14:47:20 but this one came in from south with "not in traffic", made an U-turn, and changed to the right number 14:47:26 fizzie: Does that thing say METROBUS? 14:47:48 -!- oerjan has joined. 14:48:09 alise, autobhan in Swedish is exclusively used about the "no speed limit" German autobhans. (at least they used to have no speed limit, no idea about nowdays) 14:48:25 It seems to. The picture is non-local, though, just the same model of bus. 14:48:32 Yes. 14:48:34 But I like that song. 14:48:54 alise, anyway this long range bus even had a stoved away seat at the front saying "for guides" on a label 14:49:24 also I think the suspension on it was under dampened, it kept going up and down for a bit after each bump in the road 14:49:39 (is under-dampened the right English term?) 14:49:41 How about the "al forno" and the "resquiat" parts? 14:50:02 * alise quells AnMaster's boring with the computable reals 14:50:04 resquiat means "rest" i think, see "resquiat in pace" (sp) 14:50:05 data ℝ : Set where 14:50:05 ℝ : (f : ℚ⁺ → ℚ) 14:50:05 → {{ε₁:ℚ⁺} → {ε₂:ℚ⁺} → abs (f ε₁ - f ε₂) ≤ ε₁ + ε₂} 14:50:06 → ℝ 14:50:06 14:50:06 ι : ℚ → ℝ 14:50:06 ι q = ℝ (λ_ → q) 14:50:13 oh fun 14:50:21 alise: http://isometric.sixsided.org/data/strips/the_left_sister/4.gif 14:50:23 alise, what language is that? 14:50:25 requiescat in pace 14:50:29 haskell? 14:50:33 haskaj 14:50:35 AnMaster: mine. Similar to Agda, though, you could surely make the definition there. 14:50:41 Haskell is nowhere near powerful enough to express that. 14:50:55 but haskal is turing complete! 14:50:59 fizzie: <3 14:51:15 Hasqal 14:51:39 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_forno 14:51:43 alise, what does it mean though? It looks like a definition of ℝ. And I guess the mentions of ℚ is for defining the latter as a subset of the former or such? 14:52:11 No. 14:52:16 alise, then what does it mean? :) 14:52:30 A real is represented as a function from a positive rational to a rational. {{ε₁:ℚ⁺} → {ε₂:ℚ⁺} → abs (f ε₁ - f ε₂) ≤ ε₁ + ε₂} means: 14:52:40 oh? 14:52:50 For all positive rationals e1 and e2, |f e1 - f e2| <= e1 + e2 14:53:01 alise: resquiat is a late latin corruption, it seems. also, this was italian not latin. 14:53:04 Basically, pi 0.01 = 3.14 14:53:36 alise, and pi 0.001 = 3.142? 14:53:38 This is the computable reals, not the reals, because you can't e.g. have Chaitin's constant. But constructivists don't believe in Chaitin's constant, anyway. 14:53:57 AnMaster: Or similar. 14:54:12 ι : ℚ → ℝ 14:54:12 ι q = ℝ (λ_ → q) 14:54:12 just lets you convert a rational to a real. 14:54:21 For any precision, it yields the rational you give it. 14:54:36 The cool thing is that you cannot pass any function to the real constructor that does not obey the property of {{ε₁:ℚ⁺} → {ε₂:ℚ⁺} → abs (f ε₁ - f ε₂) ≤ ε₁ + ε₂}. 14:54:42 3.14159265... <-- what I remember of pi on the top of my head 14:54:44 Don't ask how it works.

But usually Bellman, a German and a Norwegian 15:31:23 fizzie: we usually use a dane instead of a finn 15:31:29 why Bellman I have no idea 15:31:48 but we also have jokes about the finns, whose main character is _always_ called Pekka 15:31:58 oerjan, of course 15:32:08 (and secondary character is frequently called Toivonen) 15:32:29 oerjan, and all Norwegians går på tur 15:32:42 (which is a strange way to say that they are skiing) 15:32:43 ut på tur, aldri sur 15:32:51 oerjan, haven't heard that 15:32:59 I believe that taking a walk through the rain without an umbrella illustrates this concept quite satisfactorily. 15:33:06 um no that would be skitur. a tur alone may be just walking. 15:33:15 or even be a båttur 15:33:27 oerjan, gå på båttur? 15:33:28 oerjan: The interwebs tell me the characters in those jokes are supposed to be Pekka and Jorma.

Does that even make sense?) 16:55:33 alise: yes, on numbers with a limited range 16:55:33 * Sgeo_ also needs to shave today :/ 16:55:43 oh, it wasn't shortcircuiting maximum of all three 16:55:44 scarf: also, NOMENCLATURE is basically like a hash table isn't it? except of turkey bomb stuff 16:55:48 instead, the operation takes two at random 16:55:58 alise: vaguely, except it's tied to variable names 16:56:02 right 16:56:03 sort of like a typeglob in Perl 16:56:07 it's useless isn't it 16:56:17 you expect me to figure that out from memory? 16:56:22 :D 16:56:30 i'm not exactly sure how to define PUDDING 16:56:48 either in terms of everything that's in it, or in terms of everything that isn't in it 16:56:52 you have two types of PUDDING, really 16:57:07 ... (more info) 16:57:11 But they are indistinguishable. 16:57:13 also, you have to allow for removing AMICEDs into a pudding, that actually adds to the amount of state they have 16:57:15 They are both unknowable, and have infinite size. 16:57:21 scarf: what XD 16:57:29 alise: AMICEDs have negative size 16:57:32 yes 16:57:35 well, no 16:57:37 the only time you can use them at all is inside PUDDINGs, I think 16:57:40 er, yes 16:57:51 are you thinking of the right pooding 16:57:55 a PUDDING that /doesn't/ contain a specified AMICED, therefore, contains information 16:58:06 PUDDING!!!!! 16:58:07 Attempts to deduce the existance of a HUMIDOR in the given PUDDING. The player to the left of the player holding the TURKEY BOMB has to keep drinking continuously while the computer/referee does their deducing. 16:58:07 GARNISH PUDDING 16:58:07 Convolutes the PUDDING with recent context drawn from the program. The player holding the TURKEY BOMB must pass it off. 16:58:07 IMAGINE PUDDING, PUDDING! 16:58:07 Returns a NOMENCLATURE indicating all the variables unchanged between two PUDDINGs. 16:58:08 alise: whichever type has the WHEREFORE AIN'T operator 16:58:08 -!- MizardX has joined. 16:58:09 are the only pudding operations 16:58:16 so yes, wrong type 16:58:17 scarf: oh ofc 16:58:19 am I thinking HUMIDOR? 16:58:41 no it is pudding 16:58:46 so the base pudding represents everything 16:58:48 ALL BUT removes something from it 16:58:55 WHEREFORE ART EXPR 16:58:55 Returns a PUDDING indicating the entire metaphysical nature of EXPR. 16:58:57 No fucking idea. 16:59:01 nor me 16:59:17 that operation is, at least, relatively easy to define 16:59:20 just hard to implement 16:59:20 ooh, I know 16:59:34 the entire metaphysical nature of an expression is the representation of that expression in the implementation 16:59:37 embedded into turkey bomb itself 17:00:07 remember to have the turkey bomb be a reference to itself; that's one of the easiest things to do in the entire impl, but possible to forget about 17:00:43 Uh, really? 17:00:54 Anyway, turkeyBomb = [turkeyBomb] suffices in Haskell, I think. 17:01:06 It's a distinct value from turkeyBomb, but you can get to turkeyBomb through it. 17:01:08 you need to also do it at the type level 17:01:16 Unfortunately, it doesn't type 17:01:19 scarf: mm 17:01:22 yep, that's the issue 17:01:30 you want a TurkeyBomb type which is a reference to a TurkeyBomb 17:01:37 in C++, at least, you can do it with casts 17:01:37 Here's what I basically did: 17:01:58 struct turkey_bomb { 17:01:58 struct turkey_bomb *turkey_bomb; 17:01:58 } turkey_bomb = {&turkey_bomb}; 17:02:07 A struct with one element is isomorphic to just that element, so... 17:02:28 yep, that's another possibility 17:02:39 the worst thing is that you need type tags 17:02:41 so everything has to be a struct 17:02:49 ugh 17:02:49 but that helps in this case 17:02:54 if we have struct { tag foo; the real value } 17:02:59 how are you going to deal with the types which are smaller than a pointer? 17:03:02 then our tagged turkey bomb isn't even relying on struct { x } isomorphing 17:03:08 scarf: padding, obviously 17:03:23 hmm, my start at a C++ impl had padding, but only where necessary 17:03:27 and the padding didn't contain values 17:03:40 hmm; PUDDINGs represent everything minus some things 17:03:51 so we should represent the turkey bomb universe as an infinite (uncountably so?) data structure 17:03:51 PUDDING 17:03:52 I mean, if a type's defined to contain two thirds of a bit plus half a trit, you can't have it as large as 4 bytes just to stick a pointer in there 17:03:59 then turkey bomb can be the index to turkey bomb in the universe 17:04:52 you also need to keep track of who owns the turkey bomb at any given moment, but that can be done separately 17:05:04 (and I'm not entirely sure what to do when it explodes) 17:06:27 a BI_IT is 1.14666... bits i think 17:06:39 so store it as a char and use the 2 least significant bits 17:07:22 what's more fun is trying to combine multiple BI_ITs back into values 17:08:12 a BI_IT has a range of ~2.6696797083400683 values, apparently 17:08:22 not entirely sure what that implies, but 17:09:55 06:42:26 and when I stepped out of the bus when I arrived, and looked back at the bus I was in 17:09:59 06:42:30 it said "not in traffic" 17:10:17 theory: it was an extra (rush hour) bus going only to your end station 17:10:47 happens occasionally in trondheim 17:11:04 [17:03] alise: hmm; PUDDINGs represent everything minus some things 17:11:05 [17:03] alise: so we should represent the turkey bomb universe as an infinite (uncountably so?) data structure 17:11:05 [17:03] alise: then turkey bomb can be the index to turkey bomb in the universe 17:11:09 scarf: does ^ sound promising to you? 17:11:41 -!- kar8nga has joined. 17:12:01 In the drinking game, whenever an INDECENT GRUBSTEAK is involved in an expression, everyone starts chanting "BANG BANG BANG!!!" until the player holding the TURKEY BOMB either finishes their drink and starts another, or falls down (in which case someone who hasn't been playing should take him or her home). 17:12:05 this is like forcing evaluation isn't it? 17:12:09 finishing drink = totally evaluating 17:12:15 falls down = fails somehow 17:12:21 BANG BANG BANG!!! is, I don't know, outpu 17:12:22 t 17:13:41 THIS IS NOT COPYRIGHT INFRIGNEMENT, IT WAS MADE BY PEOPLE 17:13:41 ...

I wonder if typeOf (NEGATIVE_AMICED ...) = AMICED or NEGATIVE_AMICED; it doesn't really matter except for size 17:14:59 and for size we want to consider the size if it were an AMICED; i.e. the negated size of the NEGATIVE_AMICED 17:15:09 ooooooooooo 17:15:29 GRUBSTEAK 17:15:29 A fraction whose numerator is a perfect square and whose denominator is a prime number. 17:15:30 No bigger than necessary. 17:15:30 IMPROPER GRUBSTEAK 17:15:30 A GRUBSTEAK whose denominator is less than the square root of the numerator. 17:15:30 Same as GRUBSTEAK. 17:15:54 scarf: the former seems to suggest we need a dynamic representation of grubsteaks. and are grubsteaks that satisfy the improper condition improper grubsteaks? so really improper is just a property of grubsteaks... 17:16:10 indecent grubsteaks are totally different though 17:16:12 yes, I think so to 17:16:50 *too 17:18:04 then I will have types GRUBSTEAK and IMPROPER_GRUBSTEAK, and have typeOf decide based on the contents of the GRUBSTEAK value 17:19:43 * alise wonders if WITH GUSTO is a different type 17:19:50 the size is different and all the operations must be different 17:19:52 so yes, I think 17:23:14 -!- Deewiant has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds). 17:24:47 * alise tries to think of how to represent 1 and 2/3rds of a bit 17:24:58 ls 17:24:59 bin \ cube2.base64 \ cube2.jpg \ help.txt \ huh \ paste \ poetry.txt \ quotes \ share \ test.sh \ tmpdir.22864 17:25:07 What happened to the porn? 17:25:08 :( 17:25:19 scarf: I demand you think of a representation! 17:25:59 alise: I just used a separate bit for the bit and the trit part, but I think that's cheating; it does give the right values if you ignore the fractional bits of padding, though 17:26:00 Sgeo_: polish censorship 17:26:05 You mean the tri-F 17:26:11 scarf: Those bits of padding are important! 17:26:14 (the fractional bits of padding show up as various /combinations/ of bi_its leading to weird results) 17:26:15 Take a wild guess what it means 17:26:32 Family Friendly F*cking? 17:26:37 Close 17:26:38 Family Friendly Filter 17:26:42 But both work just as well 17:27:23 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Fucking Friendly Families For Fun). 17:27:32 -!- Deewiant has joined. 17:29:22 newtype FiveOverThreeBits = FiveOverThreeBits Int 17:29:22 WFM 17:30:05 ?????????? 17:31:23 there's a slight issue in that i think the maximum value 5/3 bits can represent may be irrational 17:31:47 cube root of 32 anyway 17:33:47 * Sgeo_ is a Station V3 addict 17:35:25 scarf: who would have thought implementing turkey bomb correctly would require computable reals? 17:35:32 heh 17:36:06 ah 17:36:55 scarf: 0 ≤ x³ ≤ 32 where x is a BI_IT 17:37:18 sure it's not < 32? 17:37:20 erm 17:37:23 scarf: 0 ≤ (x+1)³ ≤ 32 where x is a BI_IT 17:37:34 now you have the /lower/ bound wrong 17:37:44 :D 17:37:50 well, it's 5/3 bits 17:37:55 2^(5/3) = 3√32 17:38:01 yep 17:38:08 2^2 = 4 17:38:18 2 bits can store 0 to 3 17:38:33 2 bits is more than enough, 1 is not enough 17:38:33 so 0 ≤ x ≤ 3 17:38:46 so what is it actually 17:38:52 if we want the regular zero to n inclusive 17:39:00 0 < (x+1)³ ≤ 32? 17:40:40 it doesn't actually say BI_ITs are unsigned, acutally 17:40:41 *actually 17:40:45 cpressey: are BI_ITs signed or unsigned? :P 17:44:10 scarf: heh, NEGATIVE_AMICEDs are (6*log(10))/(7*log(2)) bits big 17:44:30 that's bound to simplify 17:44:39 alise: Yes. 17:44:40 Om 17:45:21 scarf: not that expression, no: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=6%2F7+*+log%282%2C10%29&a=*FunClash.log-_*Log.Log10- 17:45:24 * Sgeo_ could easily stay here reading Station V3 all day instead of going to school 17:45:29 but 0 <= x < 2^((6*log(10))/(7*log(2))), yes, probably. 17:45:38 Sgeo_: So do so! :P 17:45:44 yeah 17:45:48 0 <= x < 10^(6/7) 17:46:47 ... wait, that's obvious.

you implemented turky bomb in C? 18:04:26 err C++ 18:04:27 No, I mean, Haskell doesn't really have the concept of sizes of its values, so... 18:04:29 that was trivial on my machine with 32-bit pointers, but other bits were harder 18:04:30 AnMaster: he tried 18:04:33 alise: no, I just started 18:04:37 ah 18:04:40 I had most of the declarations there, but no code 18:04:42 *AnMaster: 18:04:45 stupid tab-complete 18:04:50 I'd rewrite in C, but I want rationals 18:05:18 alise, note that pudding and "HUMIDOR BUILT UP FROM type, type & type " both have infinite size 18:05:30 AnMaster: you can do them lazily 18:05:39 oh good point 18:06:09 also not 1/4 of a reference 18:06:10 it is: 18:06:14 "A quarter of the platform-defined pointer size." 18:06:42 alise, and how did you implement AMICED? 18:06:45 PUDDING is just a reference to everything in a humidor; or, a reference to the entire universe sans one value (so you can just store that value); 18:06:57 or, a reference to the entire metaphysical nature of an expression 18:07:07 AnMaster: make the value be a NEGATIVE_AMICED 18:07:10 like scarf did 18:07:11 AnMaster: AMICED is relatively easy; the weird bitwidth is harder than the actual negativeness 18:07:22 scarf, oh? 18:07:24 hm 18:07:40 it hardly matters anyway, as I don't know of any actual way to create a value of type AMICED 18:07:57 according to the rules, you can just specify a variable and its value to declare one 18:08:09 but what's the syntax for an AMICED literal? 18:08:26 clearly the actual bits and trits are embedded in the source 18:08:31 since we only have bits trits are represented as bits 18:08:39 so the following 5/3 bits of the source code are the value 18:08:42 obviously 18:08:52 why would you need syntax? you have the inherent syntax of character arrays right in front of you 18:09:02 now clearly amiced is negative 18:09:08 so the /preceeding/ 5/3 bits are the value 18:09:11 hey, you know how, say, bz2 treats the data as a stream of bits, rather than octets? 18:09:14 so if it was 18:09:16 x = y 18:09:18 it'd be 18:09:31 could you treat the program as a purenumber, and take fractional bits from that? 18:09:32 x =y= 18:09:33 or something 18:09:49 where the latter is 2/3rds 18:09:50 of a = 18:09:53 and the former is 1/3rd 18:09:54 I think 18:09:57 no esiy 18:09:58 no wait 18:09:59 that's bytes 18:10:01 you get the idea 18:10:11 scarf: eh? 18:10:27 alise: say, you have a huge purenumber 18:10:33 scarf, " AnMaster: AMICED is relatively easy; the weird bitwidth is harder than the actual negativeness" 18:10:34 ANHAHA 18:10:35 but actually 18:10:36 you can extract one bit from it by dividing by 2 and taking the remainder 18:10:40 " Negative six sevenths of a decimal digit. " 18:10:46 and one trit by dividing by 3 and taking the remainder 18:10:46 what the heck is a decimal digit here 18:10:50 how wide is it 18:10:57 AnMaster: ln(10)/ln(2) bits 18:11:00 scarf, is it stored as BCD perhaps 18:11:02 just like normal decimal digits 18:11:02 that is my guess 18:11:07 and no, it's stored as decimal 18:11:08 scarf: oh very good idea 18:11:15 let's do it 18:11:18 alise: this may even extend to fractional bits 18:11:20 scarf: collaborate? or am i just too crazy for you 18:11:23 but I'm not sure 18:11:39 alise: I would, but I need to get some RL work done by three days ago, only nobody's noticed I haven't done it yet 18:11:52 get going then! 18:11:53 divide by 5/3*2 and take the remainder obvs 18:12:11 yep, ofc 18:12:28 and an AMICED literal would presumably /add/ info to the source 18:12:38 whatever info gets added, that's the value that the AMICED doesn't contain 18:12:41 it's all falling into place 18:12:46 hmm no 18:12:57 i think "The following -n bits" = "The preceding n bits" 18:13:01 alise: I don't 18:13:02 but maybe you're right 18:13:13 so you specify every 5/3 bit value apart from the one it contains? 18:13:17 rer 18:13:18 er 18:13:20 doesn't contain 18:13:21 so to speak 18:13:49 think about it this way: a literal bit has 2 possible values, 0 and 1; code containing a literal bit, you have 2 possibilities for the code giving 2 values for the bit, and 1 possibility for the rest of the code, assuming all you change is that bit 18:14:09 addquote and an AMICED literal would presumably /add/ info to the source whatever info gets added, that's the value that the AMICED doesn't contain it's all falling into place 18:14:10 135| and an AMICED literal would presumably /add/ info to the source whatever info gets added, that's the value that the AMICED doesn't contain it's all falling into place 18:14:13 now, a literal negative bit has half a possible value; code containing a literal for that, you have 1 possibility for the code but 2 possibilities for the rest of the code 18:14:20 scarf: so, wait 18:14:36 bi_its can't just be integers 18:14:40 because the fractional portion gets wasted 18:14:43 so are they rationals? reals? 18:14:46 it's not specified 18:14:49 I give up understanding this 18:14:52 ieee floats? 18:14:54 better to avoid going insane 18:15:01 I guess a real 18:15:05 alise: they're something with... a fractional number of possibilities 18:15:05 since we're dividing the program 18:15:09 no, wait, rationals 18:15:18 scarf: yes, but we're dividing by a fractional number and taking the remainder 18:15:28 hmm wait 18:15:35 alise, fmod()? 18:15:35 a negative amiced isn't a rational number of bits 18:15:40 so it /has/ to be reals 18:15:40 :-D 18:15:51 so we need a computable real system to do all this 18:16:10 which means we're losing some nice things... for instance equality won't terminate if the two reals aren't equal 18:16:17 alise, what is the bit width of a decmial digit? 18:16:24 meh, TURKEY BOMB doesn't have equality, maybe that's why 18:16:31 AnMaster: log(10)/log(2) 18:16:42 hm okay 18:16:45 AnMaster: you can even implement this, using 10-valued logic 18:16:47 just it would be a real pain 18:16:52 scarf: but turkey bomb doesn't specify ascii or whatever 18:16:53 and you have to do it in hardware not software 18:16:56 so how do we construct the program number? 18:17:13 scarf, you could emulate it in software? By writing a 10-valued-logic-emulator? 18:17:13 oooh! 18:17:18 alise: presumably, as an expression, Mathematica-style 18:17:26 obviously the character set has exactly the number of characters that are used in the monospace portions of the spec 18:17:40 scarf: no, i mean, we don't actually have a defined way to make the text into a number 18:17:44 anyway, I see something neat about, one program containing a negative-bit literal contains 1/2 a possibility for that literal * 2 for the rest of the program 18:17:47 scarf, after all you can emulate ternary systems... 18:17:56 alise: syntax is the least of my worries here :) 18:17:59 obviously the character set has exactly the number of characters that are used in the monospace portions of the spec, and they are ordered by order of occurence (not from CLIN_TON; that's part of the older-human-written stuff) 18:18:05 no? :P 18:18:11 AnMaster: yep, that involves wasting a bit of memory, though, and TURKEY BOMB dislikes padding 18:18:19 alise: maybe 18:18:32 scarf, well write it in VHDL then! 18:18:37 or something 18:18:42 what is TURKEY BOBM 18:18:42 scarf: oh, wait, the article is in ASCII, and it says it originates from the late 90s 18:18:49 and ASCII would have been used then 18:19:02 so clearly, as they wouldn't DARE reinterpreting the monospace things from the spec for... some reason, it's ASCII 18:19:19 MissPiggy: take a turkey (preferably, a real, live turkey), or a time bomb (preferably, a real, live time bomb); preferably both, /securely/ strapped together 18:19:29 oh great, we're going to have control characters in literals 18:19:50 MissPiggy: ...and DRINK! 18:20:54 You know, when you consider both the premise of TURKEY BOMB, and the fact that FBBI stands for "Flaming Bovine Befunge Interpreter"... I'll bet the SPCA hates me. 18:21:08 cpressey: now ANSWER OUR INQUIRIES!!!! 18:21:13 :P 18:21:31 hmm, OTOH, the TURKEY BOMB spec does seem to imply particular representations for operators 18:21:32 Heh. Where do you people get the idea that ambiguities in a spec can be resolved by asking the person who wrote it, anyway? 18:21:44 Or the idea that I wrote the TURKEY BOMB spec? 18:21:50 cpressey: SHUT UP 18:21:51 oh you didn't? 18:21:56 I FOUND IT 18:21:59 so, is the valuestream separate from the operators themselves? 18:22:04 "Discovered mysteriously one day amidst a pile of Byte magazines in a second-hand book store by Chris Pressey" 18:22:06 yep, I believe you 18:22:07 At the bottom of a birdcage 18:22:17 The Byte magazines were in the birdcage? 18:22:19 anyway, I wasn't under the impression that cpressey had any idea how TURKEY BOMB worked 18:22:20 Or just the spec? 18:22:26 Was there anything else in the birdcage if the latter? 18:22:39 alise: The whole bookstore was in the birdcage. 18:22:45 Ah. 18:22:48 It was a very large birdcage. 18:23:01 Or a very small bookstore. 18:23:29 You know, when you consider both the premise of TURKEY BOMB, and the fact that FBBI stands for "Flaming Bovine Befunge Interpreter"... I'll bet the SPCA hates me. <-- SPCA? 18:23:29 \ ADVISORY ADVISORY ADVISORY ADVISORY 18:23:29 Returns the type thus pointed to. Also, the player holding the TURKEY BOMB must pass it off. 18:23:35 scarf: so types are values 18:23:38 but what are their types? 18:23:52 well, the type of a TURKEY BOMB is obvious enough 18:24:09 yes, TURKEY BOMB::Type 18:24:14 anyway, I always assumed that \ returned a value, and "type" was a typo for "value" there 18:24:17 but if \, an _expression_ 18:24:22 can return a type as a value 18:24:24 and every value has a type 18:24:26 then types must have a type 18:24:28 good catch 18:24:33 alise, or perhaps the bird cage was larger on the inside? 18:24:34 but there ain't no type specified for types 18:24:37 maybe types themselves are untyped 18:24:38 so it was both 18:24:42 scarf: the most turkey bomb way to resolve this is obviously that not all values have typers 18:24:44 *types 18:24:48 nothing really implies that TURKEY BOMB is strictly typed 18:25:05 AnMaster: No, that's a police box. 18:25:06 well, the spec implies it more or less everywhere but doesn't actually /say/ it, so we should ignore the implication 18:25:15 alise, yeah, it was disguised! 18:25:19 anyway, this means you can have references to types 18:25:22 it was a bird cage all along! 18:25:30 given that an ADVISORY is a quarter of a reference 18:25:31$ BI_IT BI_IT BI_IT BI_IT BI_IT BI_IT $18:25:32 Attempt to make a GRUBSTEAK. 18:25:32 TRIVIA Y EXPR Y TRIVIA 18:25:32 Attempt to make a TRIVIA. 18:25:33 TRIVIA BI_IT // 18:25:33 Attempt to connect a TRIVIA to itself and return it. The BI_IT argument is required, but serves no detectably useful purpose (hardcore followers of the drinking game tradition insist that it's for good luck.) 18:25:33 Note how the first two don't actually say they RETURN anything... 18:25:46 scarf: Well, no, you can have a quarter of a reference to a type. 18:25:53 There's just one operation that takes four and dereferences their inaccessible combination. 18:26:18 If there is a type with no value, then you cannot construct an ADVISORY PERTAINING TO type. 18:26:24 ADVISORY PERTAINING TO type 18:26:24 A quarter of a reference to a object of the given type. 18:26:38 You can't get to the quarter-referenced value, just its type. 18:26:46 But you need a value to construct one in the first place. 18:26:52 So you have quarter-references to types that have values. 18:27:05 I still think it's a typo, the spec makes no sense otherwise 18:27:09 well, even less sense than it normally would 18:27:15 GARNISH PUDDING 18:27:15 Convolutes the PUDDING with recent context drawn from the program. The player holding the TURKEY BOMB must pass it off. 18:27:17 maybe cpressey copied it incorrectly from the magazine? 18:27:21 no magazine 18:27:25 the spec was discovered amongst magazines 18:27:27 oh 18:27:30 Since a pudding is basically a universe, 18:27:32 well, copied it incorrectly anyway 18:27:34 convoluting it with recent context 18:27:36 = 18:27:42 did cpressey find the spec typed on paper, or in electronic form? 18:27:42 updating the values it has to be their current values 18:27:47 but recent, that doesn't mean most-recent, surely? 18:27:47 it would help to know if it implies ASCII or not 18:27:56 perhaps it's the turn before this one's state 18:28:01 cpressey: ^ 18:28:09 this question is about your transcription :| 18:28:10 scarf, EBCDIC? 18:28:17 scarf, or baudot? 18:28:27 * Sgeo_ is about to post something stupid to Facebook 18:28:34 Sgeo_: So don't. 18:28:36 Sgeo_, well, don't do that then 18:28:44 NOMENCLATURE % GRUBSTEAK GRUBSTEAK 18:28:44 Perform iterative cypher transformation of set of names. 18:28:49 Clearly the grubsteaks define the cypher. 18:28:54 GRUBSTEAK 18:28:55 A fraction whose numerator is a perfect square and whose denominator is a prime number. 18:28:56 Fractran, anyone? 18:29:01 alise, doesn't the nomenclature? 18:29:10 NOMENCLATURE 18:29:11 A set of variable names, defined by an EBNF expression that must contain at least one { } (repeated 0 or more times) term. 18:29:11 No. 18:29:14 AnMaster: you are thinking in completely the wrong terms here 18:29:20 NOMENCLATURE is a bunch of variable names with some sort of EBNF something. 18:29:29 alise, pretty sure nomenclature is a crypto term, isn't it? 18:29:30 "Defined"? Howso, I wonder? Maybe that is the syntax. 18:29:41 something related to transposing cryptos 18:29:50 So {a} would be the variable names "","a","aa",... 18:30:09 or something 18:30:21 some problems are referred to as mental exercise 18:30:34 turkey bomb is mental tv-watching 18:30:43 it ruins your mind!!! 18:30:48 ag irn 18:30:50 fub bip 18:30:55 PUDDING!!!!! 18:30:55 "So far, in every college class I've taken, there's always been at least one atheist." 18:31:08 Sgeo_: yeah that's a pretty significantly retarded thing to say 18:31:38 alise http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PyXLNL-eHI 18:31:44 Sgeo_: are you yourself an atheist? or does someone else you know to be an atheist take every class you take? or something else? 18:31:52 he's an atheist but he's pretty stupid about it in practice 18:31:56 alise, it was handwritten.

(No) 18:32:25 Now what's this about a pigeonhole principle for atheists in college classes? 18:32:41 cpressey, with a quill pen? 18:32:51 Bye all 18:32:57 And now, it's time for WHO'S AN ATHEIST, the game show where we hunt down and kill anyone who doesn't worship the father, the son and the holy spirit! *theme music plays* 18:32:59 AnMaster: If only to keep the bird-related theme up, yes. 18:33:11 cpressey, ooh I didn't think that far 18:33:11 Gregor: Don't forget... Robert! 18:33:17 atheists are more likely to go to college, because they need surrogates like higher education to fill their life with a semblance of meaning. 18:33:22 Groogger :D 18:33:28 cpressey: What natural language was it written in, exactly? :P 18:33:51 lament: Oh you scoundrel. 18:33:52 alise: In truth I cannot be certain... 18:34:03 cpressey, how comes? 18:34:09 AnMaster: he was playing TURKEY BOMB at the time 18:34:11 with LSD 18:34:17 oh 18:34:18 (he hadn't seen the warning yet, as he hadn't found the spec yet) 18:34:41 alise, I thought we were in for some LP Lovecraft thingy to explain it 18:34:42 :/ 18:35:04 The spec /is/ /Cthulhu/. 18:35:11 Oh how I wish it was merely LSD! In fact, it was extract of shoggoth. 18:35:16 NASTY stuff. 18:36:25 So did your finding of the TURKEY BOMB spec cause a lasuac violation that caused you to find it in the first place? 18:37:05 you mean LSD is not extract of shoggoth? 18:37:40 lament, no it is lysergic acid diethylamide 18:37:51 i really want to kill you AnMaster 18:38:03 It's Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. 18:38:04 alise, why? 18:38:09 Gregor, haha 18:38:10 it's complicated 18:38:43 alise, if it changes things I had to google it, didn't remember what the name was exactly 18:39:40 no i guessed you googled it. 18:40:47 if it helps I remembered it was acid diethylamide 18:41:40 Gregor, actually Beatles got that wrong. It's Lisa not Lucy. She lied about her name 18:42:18 "lucy in the sky with diamonds" sounds like a weird variation of Cluedo 18:42:25 Lucy O'Donnell Vodden (1963 - 22 September 2009) was the inspiration for the song. 18:42:28 scarf: :D 18:42:36 scarf, heh 18:42:51 OK 18:42:59 Gregor: KO 18:43:05 We officially must make a version of Clue in which "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is a valid guess. 18:43:15 * pikhq could've sworn atheism was...

The "for real" language I want to do but never will. 19:36:29 But what do you mean by "total language"? 19:36:36 Well, Lisp fits the description, if you say that there's only one type. 19:36:42 (Which lets you model untyped languages.) 19:37:02 cpressey: A total language is a functional programming language without general recursion; structural recursion is instead substituted. All programs halt. 19:37:08 total implies that every expression has a result (no exceptions, no infinite loops) 19:37:19 (You can have TCness, though, with coinductive data types and even emulate non-totality with a partiality monad. It's Complicated.) 19:37:43 Basically, e.g. Natural in a regular FP lang is Natural | Bottom 19:37:44 well, a strictly total language can't be TC 19:37:48 OK, that's what I thought. 19:37:49 Bottom = nontermination, 19:37:56 errors, etc. 19:37:58 but you can have an almost-total language which is 19:38:01 cpressey: It's good because you can adorn it with dependently-typed languages, and get a constructivist proof system. 19:38:08 Types = propositions; values = proofs. 19:38:23 Otherwise "let x = x in x" is a proof of anything, which is rubbish. And if you have dependent types and non-totality, typechecking can loop forever. 19:38:34 scarf: Well, it's the magic of codata. 19:39:08 For a lot of stuff I'm happy with merely primitive recursive. I wrote a totality-checker for Scheme programs in Scheme once. I wrote it in PR style and it passed its own check. 19:39:32 It's sufficient for anything w/ a partiality monad etc. 19:39:41 If you've used Agda, Coq, or Epigram; they're all total. 19:39:49 Most of the time you don't even notice. 19:41:19 cpressey: oh, a program to see if a program is primitive-recursive or not? 19:41:28 -!- tombom_ has joined. 19:41:44 scarf: Well, written in a certain PR style, yes. there are probably PR programs that it wouldn't see 19:41:50 ah, ok 19:42:10 But if it's not PR, it would tell you that. 19:42:34 The "pure" way to do it is to define one inductive data type and base them all on that. 19:42:45 data Mu f = Mu (f (Mu f)), basically. 19:42:52 And then a function to deconstruct such types recursively. 19:42:57 Plus no actual recursion facility. 19:43:14 hmm, ⅋ is a great punctuation mark 19:43:35 -!- tombom has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds). 19:43:52 alise: I have ... different ideas about type systems. 19:44:41 cpressey: That's nice. 19:44:45 cpressey: Such as? :P 19:45:03 I mean, type checking is a kind of static analysis, and all static analyses (incl but not limited to type checking) can be expressed in terms of abstract interpretation. 19:45:14 Well... yes. But that's at a metalevel to what I'm talking about. 19:45:19 Are you familiar with dependent types at all? 19:45:31 Well, kind of. Yes, passingly familar. 19:46:12 Yeah. The difference in perspective when you just add dependent types is immense. 19:47:03 it's like you're on acid while everyone else is merely drunk. 19:47:41 hmm, one thing I'd like to do someday is to redo Splint, but properly 19:47:51 lament: EXACTLY 19:47:54 as in, actually working, and with a set of types rich enough to actually describe interesting programs 19:48:00 Well, what I'm getting at is, I'd like to design a language without any particular type system, and let different type systems be "plugged in", by allowing them to be written in some kind of annotation language for abstract interpretation. 19:48:24 That would in no way preclude the use of dependent types... 19:49:11 That sounds fun. 19:50:05 alise, what is your opinion on ipad btw? Now that it isn't as new any longer, and there are (maybe) some reviews out there 19:50:06 Not too different from just saying "Here's my dynamically typed language, y'all write your own linters for it plz k thx", except a little less hands-off 19:50:44 AnMaster: It's probably good at what it does and it's damn flashy, but what it does isn't what I want to do. 19:51:07 alise, Right. Someone linked me this image (related to this): http://thismight.be/offensive/uploads/2010/03/01/image/288902_Think%20different.jpg 19:51:19 not actually offensive (as the url would indicate) 19:51:27 well, maybe to apple fanboys 19:51:29 :D 19:51:31 totally SFW though 19:51:32 iSpace 19:51:39 alise, ooh that would be the next step 19:51:49 a totally flat 2d plane underneath all of space itself 19:51:53 then... 19:51:55 iCube 19:51:57 then... 19:51:58 iUniverse 19:52:01 (filling in the corners) 19:52:11 heh 19:55:25 bbl 19:55:32 newtype Mu f = Mu (f (Mu f)) 19:55:32 data Nat nat = Succ nat 19:55:32 instance (Show nat) => Show (Nat nat) where 19:55:33 show (Succ n) = "Succ (" ++ show n ++ ")" 19:55:33 instance (Show (f (Mu f))) => Show (Mu f) where 19:55:33 show (Mu x) = show x 19:55:36 You wouldn't believe it, but this actually works. 19:55:46 There are some other cool methods for termination analysis that have come out of term-rewriting research. I wanted to play with those in Scheme, but I balked at reworking the Scheme semantics into a rewrite system... 19:55:47 does it need flexible instance 19:55:54 yes; and undecidable instances too 19:56:03 Mutually recursive typeclass instances. Fuck yeah. 19:56:42 -!- mrbug has left (?). 20:01:10 I totally do not get it. Well, not totally. Actually I get the idea. Just not the mechanics. 20:01:44 Then you have to realize, I'm living in a code-world where people still say things like d["%s_%s" % (a, b)] = c 20:02:04 I thought that sort of stuff died with Perl 4 20:03:18 that isn't legal Perl4, surely? 20:03:45 Ah, no, in Perl 4 it would be$d{"$a_$b"} = $c; 20:03:53 But the IDEA is Perl 4-ish. 20:04:21 Because when you can't store a dictionary inside a dictionary, well, you compose keys. 20:04:21 you'd write it$d{$a,$b} = $c 20:04:31 where, instead of using _ to compose the keys, it uses the value of$; 20:04:42 which is by default ASCII 28, on the basis that you probably weren't using it for anything else 20:04:59 That would be better style, then. 20:05:07 brb 20:05:09 typical nowadays would be $d{$a}->{$b} =$c 20:05:19 and unlike C, you don't have to set up all the subhashes, they autovivify 20:05:29 so messing with $; is rather deprecated nowadays 20:07:25 scarf: That's exactly my point, or at least part of it. This is Python, where there is no such restriction against storing dicts in dicts. Why are keys being computed? Makes them hell to cross-reference. 20:07:39 cpressey: ah 20:08:29 Sort of my higher point was, in this world, decidable *anything* is a dream -- dependent types are too much to hope for... 20:13:27 otoh, when the type system is C++'s, ... I'm sure that's hardly better... 20:16:07 cpressey: I'm a pessimist, so of course I realise that the only way any of this can work is in my grand unified redesign of all of computing. A pessimistic idealist. What a thing. 20:16:32 alise: hey, I'm a /cynical/ idealist, which is even more ridiculous 20:16:57 what 20:17:01 dependent types are real 20:17:13 I used to be a pessimist idealist, and I probably should have stayed one. 20:17:27 cpressey: what are you now? 20:17:32 MissPiggy: he never denied that 20:17:38 Well, maybe I still am, at heart. 20:18:08 scarf: Now I'm up a certain creek without a paddle :) 20:18:26 Hey, there's that pessimism coming back! 20:19:45 MissPiggy: Yes, in case there was any confusion, I meant only that people *using* dependent types in 90%+ of the industry is a pipe dream. 20:20:24 o_o 20:20:39 uh oh, here it comes 20:20:47 I think BF compilers should use dependent types 20:20:56 and dependent type inference 20:21:07 in order to work out what a program is actually doing, rather than just peephole-optimising 20:22:37 But peephole optimisation is so very *easy*! 20:23:06 yep 20:24:11 Does this connection still work? 20:24:45 Ah, apparently it does... 20:26:48 either that or you're imagining things 20:27:54 dhcpcd took a SIGKILL and then was restarted... 20:28:46 alise, what is tex for dot product? 20:28:53 \cdot? 20:28:56 ah thanks 20:29:21 alise, and normal product? 20:29:31 \times... 20:29:35 oh ffs 20:29:39 I'm too tired for this 20:29:43 :D 20:29:48 alise, wait isn't that vector product? 20:29:56 I mean, a non-vector related scalar product 20:30:28 er... you mean juxtaposition? 20:30:32 what? 20:30:39 i'm trying to account for your tiredness here :) 20:30:42 The scalar product of three and three is nine :P 20:30:59 alise, you know: scalar*scalar→scalar vector*vector→scalar and vector*vector→vector 20:31:03 three different products 20:31:12 I need three different symbols to not confuse things 20:31:14 product of a and b is ab 20:31:19 where a and b are scalars 20:31:21 :P 20:31:28 alise, yeah and product of |a| and |b| is unreadable 20:31:34 tough shit 20:31:36 |a||b| 20:31:36 use \times 20:31:41 use the word "times" 20:31:45 even http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dot_product says |a| |b| 20:31:49 just deal with it 20:31:52 cpressey, NO the point of this is unicode 20:32:12 if you want add some spacing 20:33:08 hm that could work 20:36:18 Silly alternatives: use the explicit a^T b for the dot product, then you can use the center-dot for multiplying scalars if you really need something there. Or the angle brackets for general inner product in place of the dot product, and the same thing. 20:37:48 Personally I think the spacing of \left|a\right| \left|b\right| at least here is readable enough; there's a natural gap in-between, and the |s are closer to the letters than other |s. 20:38:14 If you just write it as "|a||b|" then it won't look right, of course. 20:38:25 |a|b| 20:38:37 plus :: Nat -> Nat -> Nat 20:38:37 plus x = rec (\_ -> x) (\_ z -> suc z) 20:38:37 times :: Nat -> Nat -> Nat 20:38:38 times x = rec (\_ -> zero) (\_ z -> plus x z) 20:38:38 Fuck yeah, structural recursion 20:38:43 fuck YOU! 20:38:49 what 20:40:02 That was an offer, not an insult. 20:41:03 > fact (suc (suc (suc zero))) 20:41:03 (Zig ()) 20:41:04 NOT SO SUCCESSFUL 20:42:08 faftstawfpa4d 20:42:23 alise what should I code 20:42:50 a core total, dependently-typed language! like I'm doing except in Haskell! 20:58:40 I give up. 20:58:47 This code makes my soul bleed. 20:58:58 cpressey: Eat some functionality. 20:59:04 It has good warming properties. 20:59:10 Mmm. 20:59:34 * cpressey listens to some KMFDM 21:00:47 -!- lament has quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds). 21:01:42 -!- lament has joined. 21:02:07 -!- Oranjer has joined. 21:09:33 I really need to unify my uber-simple-auto-optimised-language-with-everything-as-one-basic-structure-that-acts-as-values-as-types-and-certain-values-being-programs omegalanguage with my total-functional-dependent-types-oh-me-oh-my omegalanguage. 21:10:43 well, hypothetically, how would someone unify chinese and english? 21:11:09 They wouldn't. But natural languages are mishmash and already extant; these are mere concepts that I can bend to my will. 21:11:34 I guess I could use directed graphs for the former - a graph is the type of the graph of the same structure, the type of something like 42 is the ur-element of natural numbers; either 0 or 1+1+1+1... = infinity. 21:11:49 The type of a list of as would be [urelement a] 21:11:55 Although lists would just be sugar over graphs 21:11:59 In fact, everything would be. 21:13:13 Is there a unicode character that's like => without the =? 21:13:21 Just a very small straight two lines and then > 21:14:18 http://www.symbols.com/encyclopedia/04/index.html 21:14:26 it might be here, beats me 21:14:41 Nope. 21:15:11 What do you call a digraph with named arcs? 21:15:23 Well, just arcs with an extra piece of info attached to them that no other arc with the same head shares, I guess. 21:16:47 I don't know if it has a particular name. 21:17:08 annotated, heh 21:17:21 A digraph with labelled edges, is actually what I'd probably call iot 21:17:23 it 21:18:17 Methinks it is the fundamental structure of everything. 21:18:41 A list is 'head -> x.

Graphs? Names. 21:33:17 So we need a graph structure that has some property related to the vague notion of "nesting", otherwise our namespaces will get clogged down. 21:33:30 And we need anonymous nodes, because naming every single piece of a nested data structure is ridiculous. 21:33:50 An acyclic graph is probably unworkable, as it means we have no pointers. 21:33:55 Pointers. 21:34:03 cpressey: wat 21:34:27 Every single piece of data is named, isn't it?

Unless a) those two lists share a tail, and the object is in the tail, or b) the list really only contains a pointer to the object. 21:53:25 Well it's a graph, everything is a pointer :P 21:53:43 Anyway, they can't share a tail unless you can have multiple pointers to one node 21:53:51 So what you want is the same point in two different lists! 21:53:56 *pointer 21:53:56 fizzie: Graphs as the most generalest of all data structures: http://pastie.org/848825.txt?key=das1exf0bvjldwzy6lmag 21:54:00 cpressey: Of course. 21:54:06 But the whole point of using a graph is that it "does pointers". 21:54:17 alise: But pointers *define* the list. 21:54:39 So the same pointer in 2 lists would mean they're actually the same list. 21:55:15 At least, that's how I see it... 21:55:21 I think we're thinking of the wrong thing 21:55:28 Consider the value fred. Doesn't matter what it is. 21:55:42 [fred,bob,lark] and [frak,fred,mogul] 21:55:57 This is impossible in a (non-multi)graph, because there are two arcs ending in fred. 21:56:28 Note that since we have no object identity we can just duplicate the object, but this sucks. 21:56:40 i.e. next(fred) isn't unique, right? 21:56:58 next(fred) has no meaning 21:57:00 I refer to a linked list 21:57:06 list of a = nil or cons(a, list of a 21:57:07 ) 21:57:14 so we have 21:57:24 the list has two arcs 21:57:32 one to "head" (goes to "fred") 21:57:33 well, next(fred, [fred,bob,lark]) might have some meaning, for some defn of next() 21:57:36 one to "tail" (goes to [bob,lark]) 21:57:46 cpressey: Then the issue is removed. 21:58:27 I'm not following ya, exactly... if lists are lists of names of objects, and fred is the name of an object, this is fine. 21:58:41 if fred is the object itself, then you can't say [fred,fred,fred] 21:58:48 Okay, let me show you the structure of a list. 21:59:39 http://pastie.org/848837.txt?key=t2z1krwvkltzmo8hmhizqw 21:59:46 "head" and "tail" are just symbols/atoms there 21:59:57 but "fred" just means that this arrow points to the fred node 22:00:00 imagine fred as another list 22:00:08 so we'd have 22:00:09 head 22:00:10 | 22:00:12 foo 22:00:16 / \ 22:00:17 head tail 22:01:43 Maybe I am all wrong about everything. 22:02:29 -!- Libster has joined. 22:02:40 -!- ChanServ has set channel mode: +o lament. 22:02:42 -!- Libster has left (?). 22:02:47 too late 22:02:48 lol 22:02:53 -!- lament has set channel mode: -o lament. 22:03:15 who's Libster? 22:03:18 a troll 22:03:25 (self-proclaimed; really bad at it) 22:03:26 -!- Libster has joined. 22:03:26 we get trolls her? 22:03:29 *here? 22:03:40 alise: http://pastie.org/848845.txt 22:03:41 scarf: only because MissPiggy got Libster and ...base3? annoyed or something a while ago 22:03:55 cpressey: Yes.

Maybe I am misinterpreting. 22:13:46 Well, I thought it was: two (direct) edges between the same two nodes. 22:13:59 In a tree, the path between the root and to another node must be unique 22:14:00 (AB and AB) 22:14:03 HOW IS THAT 22:14:27 cpressey: Considering the diagram on the page I concede; you are right. 22:14:41 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ3oHpup-pk 22:14:54 I think anonymous nodes + annotated arcs is best, because otherwise I have to have dummy nodes on lists like "list" 22:14:58 what are you people talking about 22:15:00 jesus 22:15:05 which is really just a stand-in for an anonymous node 22:15:19 and besides, what if the name node (= arc annotation) has multiple connections from it? that makes no sense 22:15:42 alise: Well, the 'list' labels actually make a lot of sense to me. 22:15:44 A nice thing we can have from this is that a scope/environment/whatever just has variable names as the graph annotations. 22:15:45 augur: Clearly we are talking about categorical monadic parser combinators and language grammars 22:15:56 cpressey: I think I'll have a typing system apart from such annotation, though. 22:16:02 language grammars?! 22:16:05 hellll yeah 22:16:10 lets talk bout some grammars 22:16:11 they kind of reflect: data List = List head tail | Nil 22:16:12 Yes 22:16:13 :D 22:16:17 okay i love grammars 22:16:26 You need to keep repeating "List" there to conform to the "grammar" of the data type. 22:16:28 have i shown you my contributions to wikipedia? 22:16:31 no 22:16:32 cpressey: I see what you mean. 22:16:34 o man 22:16:48 (Everyone kept saying "grammar" so I typed it in what I was typing. Scary.) 22:16:49 I remember you though from whatever irc channel augur. 22:17:01 ##compsci 22:17:04 yes 22:17:07 But in a "graphy" language, we would say that both nil, and any node with two arcs annotated 'head and 'tail, where the latter obeys these same constraints, is a list. 22:17:11 or maybe ##proglang 22:17:16 chomsky hierarchy 22:17:18 somewhere in that direction 22:17:20 alise: I can see why you would want to cut it out though, it's all so.... verbose. 22:17:32 augur: do you have to be Ada Lovelace to register #proglang? 22:17:32 cpressey: Yes.

After all, the whole idea is that the language is just syntax to describe graphs, and some graphs are typed and interpreted as programs. 22:22:15 TOO LAME YOU MEAN 22:22:15 cpressey: Yes.

Sorry? 22:26:49 Glad to see #esoteric is still active. 22:26:50 Quadrescence: will your language be used to program underwater exploration robots? 22:26:56 lament: yes 22:27:07 *confused* 22:27:15 dev_squid: Was asking if this is an alt nick for the one known as "calamari" :P 22:27:32 augur: It is as statically typed as possible, but it is very dynamic in nature, um...., it will be used for mathematics 22:27:52 primarily for math 22:27:55 It is flexible yet rigid, hard yet soft 22:27:59 yes 22:28:02 my cock? 22:28:08 dev_squid: Thou art... Who? 22:28:08 non-newtonian fluid like 22:28:25 and lament-cock like 22:28:25 pikhq, I used to hang around here a while ago. 22:28:32 Gregor, nah. 22:28:36 dev_squid: Yes, just don't recall the nick. 22:28:38 dev_squid: I bet there wasn't so much gay sex then. 22:28:47 And I've been around for quite some time. 22:28:48 Wow >_> 22:28:48 alise, is there now? 22:28:58 alise, o.o 22:29:02 augur: I don't know, maybe I'll tell you about it more later 22:29:03 dev_squid: yes >) 22:29:04 Pray tell, what nick did you use? 22:29:24 dev_squid: Well, sometimes. 22:30:21 Apparently dev_squid had not a nick in the past. 22:30:21 Anyway, just to clear up this issue that's been bothering me for a while...if you limit a language to only being able to deal with two bytes of storage (i.e. RAM), can it still be turing-complete? 22:30:32 No. 22:30:38 Why not? 22:30:42 *deal* with? yes 22:30:46 *only have*? no 22:30:49 pikhq, this is my new computer. 22:30:50 dev_squid: Because it can't. 22:30:54 Because a Turing-complete language must have unbounded memory. 22:31:01 True, true. 22:31:11 dev_squid: Still not informing me about what nick you had previously. ;) 22:31:16 Waaaaait wait 22:31:20 dev_squid: You can manipulate two bytes at a time and be turing complete 22:31:26 If it can only have two bytes of storage, but can have I/O, it may still be TC. 22:31:38 But could you DO anything in a 2-byte environment that you could do in a fully turing-complete environment? 22:31:49 Gregor: Not without fixed IO sources... 22:32:02 dev_squid: there isnt a machine in existence that is turing complete. 22:32:12 its not even theoretically possible to build a turing complete machine. 22:32:18 he didn't say so 22:32:20 dev_squid: all your machine has is 2 bytes? 22:32:27 alise: I didn't say /any/ I/O would make it TC, but it's possible that I/O would be sufficient, with the right kind of I/O. 22:32:28 16 bits of memory? 22:32:33 augur: Hey, I've got spools of unbounded tape right here! 22:32:43 pikhq: ;) 22:32:45 you would 22:33:09 Hey, I've already made the I-am-a-turing-machine-and-my-genitalia-comprise-the-tape joke. 22:33:15 dev_squid: For any program you can write for your 2-byte computer, I can tell whether it will halt eventually, or not. Therefore it's not TC. 22:33:22 so the technical answer to your question, dev_squid, is no, your machine aint turing complete. but that doesnt matter. its a proper subclass of the turing machines, those that are Turing Complete-enough 22:33:24 Including the corollary wrapping-universe-so-I-am-actually-sexing-myself-up subjoke. 22:33:31 dev_squid: someone has built a 4-bit computer, that's way sexier. 22:33:34 * pikhq greps logs for dev_squid 22:33:35 cpressey: OR CAN YOU 22:33:40 alise: o mai 22:33:46 cpressey, alright, alright. I didn't put that question very clearly. 22:33:47 Definitely never had someone using that nick here. 22:33:47 ur gettin me hawt 22:33:48 alise: Well, not me personally. My hordes of servants. 22:33:52 But I get it now. 22:33:53 augur: not turing complete enough if it only has one bit of address 22:34:00 then it cannot be made tc without serious graft surgery 22:34:07 alise: depends on how you handle memory. 22:34:18 depends on how your mom handles memory 22:34:29 i dont think she handles memory well 22:34:35 precisely 22:34:46 i popped your mom's stack 22:34:57 unfortunate 22:35:33 -!- tombom_ has quit (Quit: Leaving). 22:35:53 I was just wondering if it's viable (not practical!) to construct a language that only allows the programmer to operate on two bytes of RAM on bit at a time. 22:35:59 It would make quite the challenge. 22:36:11 * pikhq continues to enquire 22:36:37 Hey, I think that my language should allow multi-word symbols. 22:36:39 Just cause. 22:36:44 dev_squid: operate on, or address using? 22:36:49 so smallfuck with 16-cell memory 22:37:07 (for example) 22:37:09 like, the programmed can address an arbitrary number of memory cells, each of which is only 2 bytes? 22:37:22 programmer** 22:37:28 augur, no. 22:37:32 Hrm. Who hasn't been around in sufficient time to be surprised #esoteric's still active? 22:37:40 me 22:37:45 me 22:37:54 pikhq: hcf 22:37:55 No wait, ... 22:37:55 dev_squid: ok, clarify then? 22:37:57 Think of brainfsck where you're inconvenienced by having two bytes of data space to work with. 22:37:59 Who's been *gone* for sufficient time. 22:38:03 me 22:38:07 dev_squid: *Brainfuck. 22:38:11 ... ok, right. me. 22:38:18 dev_squid: i dont know jack shit about brainfuck. 22:38:25 cpressey was gone forever 22:38:26 cpressey: Ah, right. 22:38:30 and me, slightly less than that 22:38:40 alise, I don't really know the rules on profanity, so I just went with brainfsck. 22:38:52 lament: When did you wander back? Must have been shortly before me, I reckon. 22:39:02 Fucking hell, you think we give a shit about profanity? Only an utter cunt would do that! 22:39:02 (Pard'ner.) 22:39:06 (Just doing my job to lower signal/noise.) 22:39:09 Heheh. 22:39:10 dev_squid: Profanity? Yes please. 22:39:13 cpressey: He's been here intermittently forever. 22:39:20 alise: you watch your mouth! 22:39:22 He's just shocked every single day we still exist. 22:39:24 cpressey: i'm not sure. there was a dark ages kind of period in the history of #esoteric 22:39:26 * augur slaps alise cross the mouth 22:39:29 kids these days 22:39:32 lament: yes, all of it 22:39:51 no, it was pretty cool before you joined 22:39:52 lament: i made the sparkline, ma'am. activity has been /steadily rising/ since the start, and has never gone significantly down 22:40:02 lament: lawl 22:40:13 by dark ages i mean noise-to-signal, not volume 22:40:42 i remember something about razor-x and anime. 22:40:46 lots and lots of anime discussions. 22:41:00 i remember seeing you whine about that when feeding everything to that kicker bot thing :D 22:41:19 also signal/noise presumably, so that it gets lower as quality is shittier 22:41:50 what 22:42:31 not noise/signal 22:42:49 lament! :o 22:42:55 hey changod 22:43:02 no that's andreou 22:43:04 hows the changoddery 22:43:12 close enough 22:43:43 i'm not god :( 22:44:02 but dont you have ... 22:44:06 THE POWER? 22:44:13 scarf: my language seems to unintentionally have autovivification, yet it is totally "pure" i.e. no hacky stuff. do you approve? 22:44:19 yes 22:44:28 i think i need to go shopping 22:44:31 bye 22:44:38 i have godlike powers, sure 22:44:38 Here's my idea: a language which can only operate on one bit at a time of one of two bytes in memory...your'd have your standard bitwise operators like AND, OR, XOR, and NOT, except these took bits as operands, not bytes like an 8-bit processor. I guess you could say it (sort of) simulates machine language of a 1-bit processor...sort of. 22:44:49 *you'd 22:45:02 dev_squid: this language would be... limited. 22:45:08 lament, very. 22:45:15 -!- adu has quit (Quit: adu). 22:45:25 is it a von neumann machine? 22:45:32 Well... 22:45:33 are programs limited to being 2 characters long? 22:45:48 lament, no. 22:45:59 lame 22:46:13 the 4-bit computer people have built is a von-neumann machine 22:46:49 dev_squid: I'm sure there are some (small) problems such a computer could solve 22:47:02 operative word there being, uh, small. 22:47:16 it could easily add 1 and 2 22:47:56 dev_squid, how many bits in a bit? 22:47:59 The only thing making that actually do anything at all is not being Von Neumann.. 22:48:18 scarf: don't suppose you're interested in the details? 22:48:21 I'll come back later when I've formulated a better explanation. I'm confusing myself even. 22:48:33 alise: no, busy having a flamewar atm 22:48:39 heh, about what? 22:48:45 -!- oerjan has joined. 22:49:20 if hasattr(xyz, 'xyz'): self.xyz = xyz.xyz 22:49:41 That's what's been causing me so much pain. (The names were changed to protect the "innocent".) 22:50:01 ... 22:50:34 This is what happens when you mix subclass-based inheritance with delegation at your whim. 22:50:40 MUD. 22:50:48 anywho 22:50:54 help alise 22:51:17 MissPiggy: wut 22:51:25 alise what about haskell' 22:51:34 I could always make it where you have [8 bits][1-bit swap space][8 bits]. Basically, you can toggle which 8-bit cell you're operating on, while also being able to pass data between the two via the 1-bit swap cell. It wouldn't be a realistic model by any means, but it'd be interesting. 22:51:40 which is basically nothing at all but you have so many extensions you can turn it into anything 22:52:03 MissPiggy: What about it? 22:52:18 that' s my idea 22:52:39 Anyway, I love minimalistic or limiting esolangs because when you manage to write a working program in them, you feel much more accomplished...IMHO. 22:52:49 MissPiggy: well that's the reality of haskell today :P 22:53:49 Actually, I really have to have anonymous nodes with named arcs, I think: because I really can't have nodes all being unique. 22:53:58 George --- name --- something, Robert --- name --- something. 22:54:01 Krr, name is duplicate. 22:54:12 Or is there a name for a graph where you can have duplicate nodes? 22:54:38 MissPiggy: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/haskell-prime/ ? 22:55:26 no 22:55:36 their "Haskell 2010" sounds like hell 22:55:51 yeah 22:56:11 Hell how? 22:56:18 Haskell 2010 is just a standardisation of, well, GHC. 22:56:30 for integer exponents it is trivial to implement. Somewhat more involved for non-integers. 22:56:48 Well, if GHC is to Haskell as gcc is to C, ... 22:57:30 It's not, though? :P 22:57:33 haskell has three different power functions, dependent on whether the underlying type allows just multiplication, allows division, or allows general powers 22:57:41 oerjan: wait what's the third 22:57:44 I know ^ and ** 22:57:47 ^^ 22:58:30 you cannot implement the last one (**) cleanly for rationals 22:58:44 alise: Haskell 2010 is not a standardisation of GHC. 22:58:50 didn't even know of ^^ 22:58:53 It's a standardisation of a handful of GHC extensions. 22:58:59 pikhq: shaddap 22:58:59 :P 22:59:25 alise: it's defined for rationals, but it won't help you take cube roots alas 22:59:36 ((^^)) 22:59:48 desu 23:00:00 * cpressey was waiting for that 23:00:28 btw, is there some way to get Hugs to tell me what types implement a particular type class? 23:00:36 cpressey: Step one, don't use Hugs. 23:00:42 :( 23:00:53 You're going to make me wait for all my crap to COMPILE, aren't you. 23:00:58 cpressey: ghci 23:00:59 i think the idea of a cell containing 5/3 bits is hard to think about logically. 3 of them should give 32 possibilities, but how do you achieve this consistently? maybe it's something quantum :D 23:01:05 Compiles on the spot, interactive like hugs. 23:01:09 runghc foo.hs 23:01:14 Runs the program like a script interpreter. 23:01:38 Hugs doesn't even have the latest major version of the standard library, which changed quite a bit. 23:01:42 alise: OK, I'll give it a shot. 23:01:43 Does it even have 3? 23:02:04 Hugs is like... Dead. 23:02:18 alise: I'll give it a shot if it can tell me what types implement Integral. 23:02:28 cpressey: even ghc cannot do it without you having loaded the modules defining the type instances, i think. 23:03:08 Maybe I'll just stick to Visual Basic. 23:03:09 otoh the web documentation frequently lists types defining a particular class 23:03:22 although maybe that's module-dependent too 23:03:23 oerjan: I couldn't find it in the docs, that's why I was curious. 23:03:37 What, besides the various integery types, implement Integral? 23:03:44 nnone 23:03:46 none 23:03:47 nnone 23:03:47 nnone 23:03:53 Prelude> :info Integral 23:03:53 class (Real a, Enum a) => Integral a where 23:03:54 quot :: a -> a -> a 23:03:54 rem :: a -> a -> a 23:03:54 div :: a -> a -> a 23:03:55 mod :: a -> a -> a 23:03:55 quotRem :: a -> a -> (a, a) 23:03:55 divMod :: a -> a -> (a, a) 23:03:56 toInteger :: a -> Integer 23:03:56 -- Defined in GHC.Real 23:03:56 instance Integral Integer -- Defined in GHC.Real 23:03:57 instance Integral Int -- Defined in GHC.Real 23:03:59 (Sorry for the flood.) 23:04:02 Import more modules, get more Integrals. 23:04:11 alise: Thank you. 23:04:14 cpressey: in addition to the standard Int and Integer, the Int* and Word* types from Data.Int and Data.Word 23:04:19 Of course you can't just say "import *" then look. 23:04:30 are the ones i know of 23:06:00 -!- scarf has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 23:07:49 cpressey: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html has a sizable list a way down 23:08:07 oerjan: Thanks. 23:08:23 http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html#7 23:08:39 is the closest anchor i could find 23:08:45 haskell.org is not responding for me, lovely 23:09:06 oh, it's just reeeeeally slow 23:09:08 oh? i just brought it up 23:11:30 i guess most of those are for the ffi, lots of C types 23:12:26 and of course those are at most the instances that come with ghc. other packages can define their own. 23:12:34 I finally made a channel for my system/language/thingy. #usys 23:20:27 let's say you have 6 * 5/3 bits in a row. that is 10 bits. now you should be able to read off 5 bits starting from _any_ of the 4 first 5/3 blocks. 23:20:51 heh 23:21:34 -!- Asztal has joined. 23:22:08 -!- Azstal has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds). 23:22:11 also, if you read off 5 bits from overlapping areas, you should be able to deduce all other 5 bit offsets inside that same area 23:22:29 *from two overlapping areas 23:23:08 this is probably enough to get a logical inconsistency 23:23:41 alise 23:24:47 hm more generally you should be able to take any three 5/3 bits and combine them into a 5 bit value 23:26:21 maybe there is some mad sort of logic where this kind of thing is allowed. i've vaguely heard that toposes replace boolean truth values with something else... 23:27:07 (varying by topos) 23:29:20 -!- dev_squid has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds). 23:30:47 -!- dev_squid has joined. 23:35:52 -!- Oranjer has left (?). 23:36:58 heeeeeyo 23:37:43 yoooyo 23:38:31 ma 23:46:41 -!- angstrom has joined. 23:51:09 !haskell data Nat nat = Succ nat deriving Show; main = print .

I looked at Scheme code. I can certainly see that it gets better with practice, but so does everything else, and Lisp after X time spent on practice will still be less pleasant than non-Lisp after X time 02:12:35 humans work in a certain way which is very much the opposite of what Lisp tries to do. 02:12:49 Even if non-lisp is, in particular, Brainfuck? 02:12:59 Gregor: be practical jeez 02:13:03 :P 02:13:51 lament: I know what you're saying. I guess I should put it this way: lisp syntax is perfectly suitable for the style of programming it promotes, and trying to replicate this style in other languages would be impossible without sexps 02:14:39 Quadrescence: duh, obviously. To me this just says the whole style is crap. 02:15:04 alan perlis, etc. 02:15:12 I prefer Haskell syntax.

(I happened to be reading the same bit of news at the same time.) 09:16:04 all of these just to reduce angular momentum by itself? 09:16:22 shorter days implies a faster angular momentum 09:16:33 although it could also happen due to a change in rotation speed around the sun 09:17:53 i mean reduce moment of inertia 09:18:04 ah, apparently it sped up because the Earth became denser towards the centre and less dense towards the crust as a result 09:19:05 The news article I happened to be reading does note something vague about there being regular larger changes in day-length "due to other causes, such as atmospheric mass moving around on Earth". 09:19:35 tidal forces apparently have the largest day-to-day effect 09:19:52 it apparently takes 100 days of the Moon going round in circles to produce a similarly-sized change to the earthquake 09:20:22 Yes.

As in, for who-knows-what-will-happen reasons. 11:15:45 I find it quite likely that the unit is not over yet. 11:16:10 alise: once a week should probably be enough, although it's not quick enough to catch without-objection 11:16:25 however, given that contracts were repealed, you can normally rely on someone else to object for you 11:16:39 Ah, I just meant as in neglecting any obligations or whatever 11:16:52 you can avoid taking on obligations that you can't fulfil easily enough 11:17:09 I don't particularly want to play if I'm still fighting the unit, so I'd probably inactivate if it starts again. 11:17:12 Is the point. 11:17:57 it's pretty quiet atm 11:18:16 we repealed most of the interesting rules, presumably this would be a good time to create more 11:18:31 although there's been an intriguing discussion about whether the IBA still exists, given that contracts have been repealed 11:18:44 Well, if there's nothing interesting to do... 11:19:09 What's RtRW? 11:19:46 read the ruleset week, first week of february 11:20:19 ah 11:20:25 * alise sees a genius idea on reddit 11:20:34 if a government has national debt, they should just bail themselves out 11:20:44 o_o 11:20:51 :D 11:21:35 and charge interest! 11:25:09 has agora been without contracts before? 11:25:14 I'm pretty sure they've been around for almost all time... 11:25:20 (that is, after their first introduction) 11:26:34 no idea; I wonder if they were continuously there between the whole SLC mess (years ago) and modern contracts? 11:29:48 SLC mess? Haven't heard of that one. 11:29:58 scarf: Regardless, I doubt it's been without them for more than weeks before. 11:30:04 They've been the backbone of Agora for how long? 11:30:20 the power system has been the backbone ever since it was invented 11:30:30 contracts have just been a fun thing to mess around with 11:30:33 Nah, that's just a safeguard. 11:30:41 The actual non-nomic gameplay, I mean. 11:30:46 (Most people like that stuff.) 11:38:07 scarf: Logicnomic! 11:38:14 You win if you prove a contradiction. 11:38:34 Formallogicnomic, I should say. 11:38:48 thus proving the entire ruleset inconsistent? 11:39:05 exactly (but there's a metaruleset that says that the game restarts in a certain way after) 11:39:15 presumably with the contradiction eliminated somehow 11:41:22 meh, just have it end after someone wins 11:41:26 some nomics have actually ended like that 11:41:31 then you can start a new one 11:41:43 hmm... /me wonders at lea being used for addition 11:41:46 but everyone would be trying to subtly introduce contradictions all the time 11:41:50 it makes sense on some level, but not on another level 11:41:52 so i imagine the turnover would be quite high 11:48:18 Given that x86's add (and so many other ops) have the target register fixed to be one of the operands, the popularity of some lea-trickery is not very surprising. 11:48:57 it's more a case of, why have two addition instructions which use utterly different syntax? 11:50:10 Yes, I guess it only makes sense if you think about it on the implementation level. (Where you have this pile of logic ready for all kinds of addressing modes, and it's easy to make an instruction that just reads the computed address into a register.) 11:53:42 gcc-bf, incidentally, uses lea for pointer computations and add for integer computations 11:53:52 pointers and integers are stored utterly different ways, so it makes sense to have two commands 11:54:57 Your "hardware" there is a bit on the strange side, though. 11:58:09 On x86-64 you "need" lea to turn IP-relative offsets into real pointers (if you need to pass it to somewhere, for example), since you can't add the RIP register normally -- it's not general-purpose enough -- but you can LEA reg, [rel offset]. 12:03:08 alise 12:03:11 http://www.inc.com/magazine/20100301/lets-take-this-offline.html 12:03:44 Joel Spolsky?

All you could do would be to delete HackEgo. 13:45:40 If you then found a Linux exploit that let you elevate to root, you would then be able to wipe out Gregor's VPS. He probably has backups. 13:45:52 So nothing would really happen except I'd waste time and get banned? 13:45:59 Yep. 13:46:11 And HackEgo would disappear? 13:46:32 Until the backup was restored; so a few hours. 13:46:37 It'd probably be set to ignore you afterwards. 13:52:41 Bah, why isn't anyone interesting online. :P 13:52:53 I don't think you need a vulnerability exactly in the chroot code, you just need a local privilege escalation so that you get root inside it; that thing's not supposed to hold raptors, after all. Still, a combination of plash and linux vulnerabilities isn't exactly trivial, and really, getting access to someone's virtual server can't be worth the trouble. 13:52:54 Bah, why can't I do anything interesting in Hack(gr)Ego(r) 13:53:54 Linux local privilege escalation: Even three-year-olds can do it 13:54:04 A vulnerability in chroot code is more likely than privilege escalation 13:54:13 But then you'll only be a useless user. But still. It's the outer VPS. 13:54:22 You could use up all his disk space if he hasn't set a quota (he probably has, though). 13:54:35 You could jam his network, though you could do that from HackEgo anyway. Pointless, though. 13:54:36 If he had a Mac, I could run Lose/Lose on it maybe 13:56:26 "The Royal Standard is never flown at half-mast, as the Sovereign never dies (the new monarch immediately succeeds his or her predecessor)." 13:56:45 THE QUEEN: Literally immortal 13:57:19 alise: So could you design a faster-than-light information-transfer system based on killing royalty? 13:57:35 :D 13:58:09 A.

As such, there are no conforming implementations.]] 19:23:54 cpressey, Befunge is awesomesauce. Where'd you get the idea? 19:24:06 Biota; telepathically :P 19:24:50 Hah, no. 19:24:56 AmigaVision 19:24:59 and BASIC 19:25:12 replacing "goto 100" with an ASCII arrow pointing to line 100. 19:25:32 And was exposed to FORTH at the time. 19:26:30 Biota, for all I can tell, is a lot closer to what I'd call a cellular automaton, though not exactly cellular. 19:27:51 cpressey, did you write an interpreter for Befunge, or didja just idealize it? 19:28:56 dev_squid: I wrote an interpreter for the first version (-93). Being not so much into writing specs at the time, it sort of defined the language, alongside some crude documentation. 19:29:31 cpressey, what did you write it in? 19:29:32 For -98 I compiled the spec with input from the Befunge mailing list at the time, and wrote a very buggy implementation based on it. 19:29:42 Oh cool. 19:29:43 dev_squid: C (both of them.) 19:30:02 I write all my interpreter prototypes in assembly. :) 19:30:02 Um, it was compiled with DICE C on an Amiga 500, originally... 19:30:07 It's tedious. :| 19:31:00 Assembly's fun, but I tend not to implement languages in it often. I guess Shelta is one, and I did try to implement Befunge in x86 once. 19:31:17 "Try". LOL. 19:32:05 Yeah, it was an implmentation of Befunge-93 that I *think* *mostly* works, but I remember it failing badly on some example sources. 19:32:33 The executable was only like 4K or something in size though. 19:32:47 Yep. I remember trying to make a simple BF interpreter in x86 Asm but then failing epicly. To this day, I still don't know what I was doing wrong. >:( 19:33:01 Yeah. 19:34:03 Umm...there's this guy that made a 166-byte BF compiler. 19:34:19 For what? 19:34:37 Which is kittenpunchingly smaller than the 256-byte compiler by Meuller. 19:34:42 Brainfuck. 19:34:50 For what /system/ X_X 19:34:57 Linux x86. 19:34:59 TO WHAT END 19:35:14 (http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/software/tiny/bf.asm.txt) 19:36:42 I'm pretty sure it violates every single ELF standard in existence, but it *is* 166 bytes. 19:37:17 Yeah, ~breadbox is <3. 19:37:22 I love it. 19:37:32 He also wrote the CGI INTERCAL game. 19:37:54 And http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/software/tiny/teensy.html 19:37:57 the tiniest ELF executable 19:44:47 -!- Asztal has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 19:47:32 cpressey, Befunge interpreter.

And unexpected. 20:29:44 Deewiant, what's the difference? 20:30:02 If you restrict yourself to the Befunge-93 instruction set: not much. 20:30:20 Deewiant, SGML spaces 20:30:21 Deewiant, so it's just a superset? 20:30:35 Division by zero is defined (gives 0), SGML spaces, bigger funge-space 20:30:45 dev_squid: I said "not much" not "nothing" :-) 20:30:52 alise, hey! ^ 20:31:01 alise, solved your problem there ;) 20:31:05 dev_squid: Everything >= 1998 on this page: http://catseye.tc/cpressey/languages.html 20:31:34 dev_squid: SGML spaces means that "x y" pushes the same three characters as "x y" 20:32:13 And of course, there's the fact that due to more instructions, you can't rely on them reflecting like they did in Befunge-93. 20:32:23 *Main> (5//6)*(0//3) 20:32:23 0 % 18 20:32:52 I am not sure this means anything at all. 20:33:00 dev_squid: Anyway, http://iki.fi/deewiant/befunge/ccbi.html has a binary if you're interested. 20:33:00 Deewiant: Also the stack and fungespace cells have the same size. 20:33:02 Hmm. 20:33:09 Deewiant: '93 had 8-bit fungespace. 20:33:11 Ah yes. 20:33:14 cpressey, btw, what do you think should happen on EOF on stdout? The way I read the spec, the program should not end, but reflect 20:33:32 cpressey, same goes for STDIN 20:33:46 So, (a/b)(c/d) = (ac)/(bd), and a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/(bd)? 20:33:47 AnMaster: Reflect sounds like saner behaviour that just bombing, for sure. 20:33:52 *than 20:33:56 Frac m1 n1 + Frac m2 0 = ((m1%n1) + (m2%1)) // 0 20:33:56 Frac m1 0 + Frac m2 n2 = Frac m2 n2 + Frac m1 0 20:33:56 Frac m1 n1 + Frac m2 n2 = ((m1*n2)+(n1*m2)) % (n1*n2) 20:34:00 cpressey, this means that ctrl-d doesn't kill the program of course 20:34:01 Frac m1 0 * Frac 0 n2 = m1 % n2 20:34:01 Frac m1 n1 * Frac 0 n2 = 0 // ((n2%1)//(m1%n1)) 20:34:03 (//) :: WT -> WT -> WT 20:34:03 (Frac m1 n1) // (Frac m2 n2) = (m1*n2) % (n1*m2) 20:34:11 In general everything should reflect, not bomb 20:34:13 There's nothing inconsistent about treating 0/0 and its brethren that way. 20:34:13 I'm not done with * 20:34:20 Or is there? 20:34:21 Deewiant: Yeah, then we wouldn't have any wars. 20:34:23 Deewiant, well iirc you didn't catch SIGPIPE? 20:34:28 Deewiant, thanks. 20:34:33 fizzie, augh 20:34:34 fizzie: Exactly! 20:34:46 World peace via Befunge. 20:34:51 Deewiant, hey there 20:34:51 AnMaster: Might be, haven't tested. 20:34:54 Deewiant, wrong url 20:34:57 Deewiant, you meant "http://iki.fi/matti.niemenmaa/befunge/ccbi.html" 20:34:58 :P 20:35:06 uorygl: Who knows? 20:35:16 Deewiant, see, if you forget that yourself, don't complain when I don't use the perma link :P 20:35:19 AnMaster: They're equivalent, but no point in giving both alternatives on t he site. 20:35:25 AnMaster: Both are permalinks. 20:35:27 Well, see if those are associative, commutative, and distributive. 20:35:30 Deewiant, hrrm 20:36:04 uorygl: They are not distributive. 20:36:12 No? 20:36:13 I'm sacrificing that for having "coherent" division-by-zero. 20:36:18 uorygl: Uh, I don't think so... 20:36:20 Deewiant, works perfectly. Thanks. 20:36:25 What does the failure of distributivity look like? 20:36:32 dev_squid: No problem. :-) 20:36:36 I don't actually remember, I've been banging this out for a whole 20:37:08 *Main> 0*(1//(3//0)) 20:37:08 0 % 3 20:37:09 :( 20:37:15 Needs to be 1... or, wait, no. 20:37:16 AnMaster: It's just when I type them by hand, "deewiant" is shorter so I use that. 20:37:23 *Main> (3//0)*(1//(3//0)) 20:37:23 1 % 1 20:37:24 Yay!! 20:37:27 Deewiant, heh 20:37:32 *Main> (3//0)*(2//(3//0)) 20:37:32 1 % 1 20:37:33 Nay!! 20:37:44 uorygl: fixem 20:40:15 Meh 20:43:45 Sgeo__: ping 20:45:54 cpressey, beautiful. (http://pastie.org/850514) 20:46:32 why 00 at the start? Seems pointless 20:46:41 to push zeros on an empty stack 20:46:51 after all popping from empty stack yields zero 20:47:36 AnMaster: does cfunge optimize away pushing zero onto an empty stack? :) 20:47:45 What's with the infinite loop at the bottom 20:47:59 cpressey, that would take too long checking for! 20:48:02 Probably not worth optimizing that 20:48:04 Yeah 20:48:15 BUT THINK OF THE WASTED SPACE etc 20:48:20 cpressey, in an optimising JIT it might be worth it 20:48:28 cpressey, also, the stack size in y wouldn't work out 20:48:39 cpressey, and I just use ip->stack->top for it 20:48:50 (ip->stack points to TOSS) 20:48:59 AnMaster, true. 20:49:02 Ah yes, you can check for that can't you. It means zeros at the bottom of the stack have to be recorded somehow. 20:49:15 Recorded... with LOVE 20:49:24 cpressey, well yes, and that would mean another 8 bytes wasted! 20:49:27 Mycology tests that \ on an empty stack increases the stack size to 2 20:49:36 yes it does 20:49:45 which broke my optimisation of \ 20:49:50 which was peek, push 20:49:51 And mine :-) 20:49:56 instead of pop push push 20:50:39 cpressey, but cfunge does stuff like only shrink the bounds of funge space in case anyone looks 20:50:42 if (empty) push zeroes else peek push - might be faster 20:50:51 Deewiant, it's there because the interpreter doesn't seem to have a pause-at-terminate option. 20:50:57 Deewiant, I actually do that :P 20:51:06 AnMaster: :-) 20:51:20 dev_squid: Well yes, it generally assumes command prompt usage 20:51:29 dev_squid: You can always use ~ before @ 20:51:40 but that is wrong IMO :P 20:51:50 because normal usage is from terminal 20:51:53 Better than an infinite loop IMO 20:51:58 true 20:52:04 Deewiant, true. I just drag and drop. I'm lazy. 20:52:17 that seems like more working than just typing 20:52:21 Whatever floats your boat :-P 20:52:24 since you have the terminal open anyway all the time 20:52:36 I doubt he does 20:52:40 oh yeah windows 20:52:47 forgot windows terminal sucks 20:53:01 AnMaster: Please blow your predictable hot air elsewhere. 20:53:04 Yes, Windows sucks. We get it. 20:53:09 alise, I didn't say that. 20:53:12 But it's really not interesting, that it sucks. 20:53:12 Deewiant, if you want to get technical, ~ is, itself, and infinite loop. 20:53:17 alise, what I said was that cmd.exe sucks 20:53:26 "since you have the terminal open anyway all the time" is obviously just prelude to "OH LOL WINDOWS SUX" 20:53:43 alise, and if you disagree with that cmd.exe sucks, please explain why 20:53:47 dev_squid: How's that 20:54:02 I'm so oldschool, I don't use a desktop environment on my Linux platform. /flex 20:54:17 AnMaster: command.com is worse 20:54:22 Deewiant, true 20:54:32 -!- asiekierk has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds). 20:54:46 heh, like the programming teacher at university. He used twm. I was really surprised first time he hooked up his netbook to the projector.... 20:55:06 What's wrong with twm? :-P 20:55:16 Deewiant, very funny 20:55:22 Deewiant, well, ~ is an infinite loop that breaks when stdin changes. 20:55:23 Deewiant, ask alise instead 20:55:28 dev_squid, what? 20:55:39 dev_squid, ~ just waits, it doesn't busy loop 20:55:43 dev_squid: Well, semantically, I suppose you can say that 20:56:05 It's an argument from convenience, of course 20:56:14 translate B skal straks se film med C. 20:56:24 B must immediately watch movies with C. 20:56:35 uorygl, if that is Swedish, it is extremely confusing... 20:56:41 Oh? 20:56:44 AnMaster, ~ doesn't halt the program (interpreter). It sends it into a loop that breaks when you input a character. 20:56:57 AnMaster, execution never halts. 20:57:11 translate Hva de skal se, vites ikke enda! 20:57:13 What to see, is not known yet! 20:57:17 Is "skal" Swedish in that kind of meaning? I think not. 20:57:27 uorygl, "B shall/bark straks view movie with C" 20:57:33 uorygl, where "straks" doesn't exist 20:57:58 From the second example I am convinced that this is Norwegian 20:58:03 uorygl, wait, it isn't shall or bark 20:58:05 uorygl, it is "shell" 20:58:11 uorygl, since there is only one l 20:58:12 Yep, in Swedish 20:58:15 I guess it's not Swedish, then. 20:58:20 It's Norwegian. 20:58:29 Deewiant, probably 20:58:32 or Danish? 20:58:44 I'm pretty sure "hva" is only Norwegian. 20:58:54 translate Hva de skal se, vites ikke enda! <-- yeah that looks like Norwegian indeed 20:59:35 Jatsu tsappari dikkari dallan tittari tillan titstan dullaa, dipidapi dalaa ruppati rupiran kurikan kukka ja kirikan kuu. 20:59:46 uorygl, I defer to Deewiant on that one 20:59:48 :P 20:59:54 It's from Ievan polkka 21:00:08 Deewiant, and what is that? 21:00:17 It's Finnish that doesn't mean anything, I think. 21:00:19 A song 21:00:23 Deewiant, I see 21:00:27 http://leekspin.com/ 21:00:42 <3 21:00:43 uorygl, ?

But for 98? k 21:21:07 :P 21:21:15 dev_squid: Befunge-98: push the number of characters minus one, then use "k," (without the quotes) 21:21:22 dev_squid, for 93, I would do a 0gnirts instead 21:21:33 alise: Oh, hey. http://pastehtml.com/ 21:21:35 uorygl: CNAMEs don't point at URLs 21:21:48 pikhq: The main person who needs it may technically already have it. 21:21:51 >_> 21:22:08 Hence the :P 21:22:15 AnMaster, 0gnirts? 21:22:26 dev_squid, 0"string goes here" 21:22:29 So, yeah.

Okay. :) 21:22:53 Deerr 21:22:54 err 21:22:55 AnMaster: I know this. 21:22:55 dev_squid, ^ 21:22:57 :-P 21:23:02 De :P 21:23:06 and "last spoke" 21:23:22 dev_squid, anyway: the idiom being >:#,_ 21:23:25 Maybe you should read what you type 21:23:31 (mirrored and vertical versions exist) 21:23:37 AnMaster, oh, I'm so dumb. I was thinking "Crap, if I use >:#,_ then I'll run into my other data" 21:23:45 I just push a 0 before...*facedesk* 21:23:46 Deewiant, no, I read what other people say while I'm typing 21:23:46 :) 21:24:07 AnMaster: Maybe you should glance over your line on occasion 21:24:15 I have no trouble reading both at once 21:24:30 Just point one eye at each thing you want to look at. 21:24:31 Deewiant, well sure, but then you have to disconnect your eyes 21:24:39 uorygl, hah, beat you to it! 21:24:42 by half a second 21:24:45 On the contrary. 21:25:01 AnMaster: You lost from my POV 21:25:05 uorygl, well, lag means we will never know 21:25:14 who was truly first 21:25:20 * Ping reply from uorygl: 1.08 second(s) 21:25:39 I have about a hundred milliseconds of "extra" lag. 21:25:43 More like there is no "truly first" 21:25:53 Deewiant, oh? 21:25:56 Why Files Suck: http://pastehtml.com/view/5tmr7u1.html 21:26:01 Have at it, you gallery of peanuts. 21:26:12 alise, why is it like very narrow 21:26:14 it looks weird 21:26:17 in my browser 21:26:20 -!- cpressey1 has joined. 21:26:26 30em ~= 10 words a line ~= best typographical reading width. 21:26:30 Look at a book's width sometime. 21:26:34 alise, why not center it in the window 21:26:40 rather than have it aligned out at the edge 21:26:50 that way I have to turn my head slightly to read it 21:26:50 Dunno. Didn't feel like it. Would look weird with ragged-right text, anyway. 21:27:02 not comfortable for long sections 21:27:13 alise, why not adjusted margins? 21:27:33 Browsers are really, really bad at justified text. 21:27:36 * AnMaster is forced to un-maximise browser window and move it so the text is near the middle 21:27:45 Oh, the horror. 21:27:46 alise, why don't they just implement the TeX algo? 21:27:51 Because that's hard. 21:28:33 "A superior way to represent [a collection of unordered photos] would be as an unordered bag." 21:28:37 How would that be easier for anyone? 21:28:53 My browser size was already 797x358 or thereabouts 21:28:55 alise, indeed. You know why Hitchcock never made a horror/thriller about unmaximising the browser window? 21:29:02 alise, well, because it was too horrible of course 21:29:05 Just double-checking...if I use a null-terminates string with >:#,_ the 0 will be popped off, right? 21:29:09 Or because they didn't have browsers then :P 21:29:14 alise, well that too 21:29:30 uorygl: No needless arbitrary naming with the disadvantages given; it fundamentally is an unordered bag 21:29:34 dev_squid: No, it won't. 21:29:41 dev_squid, well, yes but also duplicated before that 21:29:43 Append a $for that 21:29:46 so there will be one zero at the end 21:29:51 uorygl: Anyway, I think I come back to that later. Maybe. 21:29:57 Deewiant, the zero *will* be popped off, just not the last zero 21:30:01 since it was duplicated 21:30:12 AnMaster: "the" zero that was there originally is not popped off 21:30:16 -!- cpressey has quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds). 21:30:27 alise: so the lack of any way to refer to a specific file using a string makes things easier for the user? 21:30:28 AnMaster, oh I see. 21:30:30 Deewiant, well, depends on how : is implemented 21:30:31 :P 21:30:45 Semantics, not implementation details, please. 21:30:54 uorygl: Meaningless. My proposed system has no "files". 21:31:06 alise: so the lack of any way to refer to a specific photo using a string makes things easier for the user? 21:31:06 Anyway read the rest before making a judgement based on the incomplete impression of the proposed system you have 21:31:14 Sure. 21:31:16 uorygl: I never suggested there was such a lack. 21:31:19 dev_squid, but Deewiant's answer is actually more useful than mine. Mine is just trying to answer to something else by exploiting loopholes in the question :P 21:31:26 Anyway, it does not propose a solution. 21:31:33 It says /why/ we need a solution, and some aspects it should have. 21:32:08 Okay, so to review, the right-to-left version of >:#,_ is _!,#: right? 21:32:13 -!- cpressey1 has changed nick to cpressey. 21:32:15 Nope 21:32:41 alise, photos often have inherent ordering due to "taken before/after" 21:32:49 dev_squid: It's _,#! #:< 21:32:53 That's one particular ordering you can give them. 21:33:00 Not an /inherent/ ordering. 21:33:04 alise, the one the camera gives them and a rather useful one 21:33:10 but sure 21:33:51 Deewiant, yeah, I just found the flaw. :) 21:34:23 alise, also, for many purposes a directory/file name model fits very well 21:34:43 AnMaster: Firstly, no it doesn't. Secondly, that doesn't mean there aren't better structures. 21:34:52 alise, like, "project/{source_data.csv, report.tex}" 21:34:54 or such 21:35:02 Sure. That's just a hierarchy. 21:35:10 of course, the file extension is another matter 21:35:18 Here it is in OOP: project.source_data is-a Table 21:35:23 project.report is-a TypesetDocument 21:35:32 OOP is just one way you could represent that, of course. 21:35:36 alise, typeset with what system 21:35:42 It was an example, dammit. 21:35:45 :P 21:35:59 So, you say that a superior way to represent the collection of photos would be as an unordered bag. 21:36:10 alise, why not Document.Type.TypesetDocument.TeX.LaTeX? :P 21:36:14 A directory full of files *is* an unordered bag, except that each file has a unique label. 21:36:24 -!- augur has joined. 21:36:31 As far as I know, those labels never get in the way of anything. 21:36:42 uorygl: Here is an example path — just one of many possible sort of syntaxes — you could use. 21:36:43 alise, as opposed to Document.Type.TypesetDocument.TeX.ConTeXt or Document.Type.TypesetDocument.roff.nroff 21:36:54 photos.select {takenAt==exactTimestamp} 21:36:56 (or should that last one just be troff?) 21:37:00 Perhaps my example was not the best. 21:37:05 My other points apply regardless, though. 21:37:06 alise, ah, object database 21:37:09 I see what your aim is 21:37:13 AnMaster: No, that's ONE EXAMPLE. 21:37:14 I hate OOP. 21:37:16 I don't want OOP. 21:37:19 ah okay 21:37:21 But most people understand OOP. 21:37:33 Most people wouldn't understand my system without lots of backstory to how it works :P 21:37:34 alise, anyway the file name isn't used to order the files 21:37:45 Never said it was. 21:37:54 I guess programs have a reason for storing stuff in databases rather than directly in files. 21:38:04 In a collection of photos, no photo has an inherent “name” — one must be constructed from some arbitrary properties of the photo. If the properties are not chosen well enough, there might even be conflicts. These are usually resolved by appending a meaningless number to the photo considered later — even though there is no inherent ordering. 21:38:06 The point is 21:38:11 we save photos to disk in a certain arbitrary ordering 21:38:23 we append -1,-2, etc when we've already seen a photo with the same generated name 21:38:28 uorygl, well, ACID is a pretty good reason for some usages 21:38:35 but "which ones have -1" is completely arbitrary and stupid 21:38:37 because there is no ordering 21:38:44 we're exposing an implementation detail of the disk-saver 21:39:00 Hmm, I like the idea of not exposing implementation details. 21:39:17 -!- MigoMipo has joined. 21:39:26 alise, there are good reasons to store images as png rather than raw uncompressed bits 21:39:32 AnMaster: Read on. 21:39:33 Read on. 21:39:37 Read the whole section before commenting! Jesus. 21:39:51 It's not a long article, and it covers that point :P 21:39:55 alise, also, what is the image format you suggest? What about 32 bit floating point numbers per channel? 21:40:01 READ 21:40:01 ON 21:40:16 Reading about Objective-C and how "transparent" it is really made me... 21:40:24 Just one more question. What if I want to subtract a number and an already-pushed number in the reverse order that - does the job? 21:40:25 uorygl: ...ontologise? 21:40:30 Think about C and its pointers and how they're really inconvenient for a certain niche purpose. 21:41:03 Also, although I doubt anyone here will ever want to link to this piece of complete and utter tripe :P, http://catseye.tc/ehird/files-suck.html is now a more permanent home for it. Thanks cpressey! 21:41:40 alise, if I just dumped some of those panoramas I made to disk I would get images half a GB large. That is why you use deflate on them. Even between the programs used to operate on said files. 21:41:49 Okay, I will say this one last time. 21:42:04 I'm at the next section now 21:42:04 Until you read the entire thing /I will not answer anything more you say about it/ because this is /covered/. 21:42:52 "Surely the very fact that we so often forget to save our files should set alarm bells off in the mind of anyone who wants to improve user interfaces."? 21:42:54 that isn't true 21:43:02 I usually save every half minute or such 21:43:13 "We" is not "you" 21:43:36 Deewiant, you forget to save files? 21:43:44 I never met anyone that had that issue mentioned there really 21:43:46 "We" is not "me" either 21:44:14 I've heard of people losing significant amounts of data come power failure or similar 21:45:20 so I read it all 21:45:31 alise, how would this transparent compression/parsing work then? 21:45:56 alise, would it be in the OS? 21:46:00 alise, now I read it all 21:46:03 so you have to answer 21:46:25 alise's wording is so hilariously whiny that it's hard to figure out what parts are the actual arguments and which parts are just whining :P 21:46:32 Gregor, true 21:46:46 and the whole thing breaks down because there aren't common formats for many purposes 21:47:21 would there be a OS level supported document.cas for mathematica and maxima? 21:47:34 (never mind that those aren't compatible in design at all) 21:47:53 and then, png can't be used for HDR images 21:48:04 due to a lack of support for such things as floating point values per channel 21:48:44 and the number of data formats that could be somewhat commonly supported is huge. And should you use lossy or loseless? 21:49:00 Presumably, mathematica has a data structure it stores notebook files in. 21:49:24 alise, also png doesn't support layers for example 21:49:36 would you use xcf or psd? Or something that supported both? 21:49:57 You assume that there is one single type to represent images for everyone. 21:50:01 alise, no 21:50:02 You assume there is only one format per single type. 21:50:03 I don't 21:50:09 Yes you do because your arguments are based on that. 21:50:15 but I point out that apart from common data interchange formats this breaks down 21:50:35 "[21:47] AnMaster: and then, png can't be used for HDR images" 21:50:40 So HDRImage doesn't support the PNG backend. 21:50:51 alise, What exactly is HDRImage? 21:50:55 that sounds like a single thing 21:50:57 which it is not 21:51:03 And if you want to process HDR images in a special way that some standard HDRImage class wouldn't work for, just have your own HDRImage in your thing. 21:51:14 -!- ruhtranayr has joined. 21:52:43 alise, sorry, but that statement doesn't mean anything until you define what you suggest a "standard HDRImage class" would be able to do 21:52:49 Not a class. 21:52:59 alise, I copied that from you 21:53:02 The vector class in a standard library may not be appropriate for all uses of vectors. 21:53:09 indeed 21:53:10 Which is why you make your own if it's not suitable. 21:53:12 Duh. 21:53:35 alise, well, but point is then you need to define your own way to serialise it 21:53:41 No. 21:53:54 All objects have a common serialisation format. If you want to use the standard image backends, call them according to their interface. 21:53:56 because what you don't want to do is store any HDR image raw. 21:54:00 My second Befunge program. :) 21:54:01 http://pastie.org/850663 21:54:05 that 500 MB is *after* deflate 21:54:06 not before 21:54:10 See above. 21:54:14 before is several times larger 21:54:25 alise, then you need to interface with it 21:54:34 AnMaster: Deflate is a piss-poor compression format for most anything. ;) 21:54:48 AnMaster: Trivial. Defining such a custom representation should not be very common, anyway. 21:54:53 There will be a library entirely for it, most likely. 21:54:53 pikhq, you know png uses it? And that works out quite well 21:54:55 dev_squid: Note that if you don't really have a need to head left after printing, you can also use >:#,_v#: which heads down at the v when it's done 21:55:12 AnMaster: Still crap. 21:55:16 pikhq: I take it you, being sane, have mostly no objections to the article :P 21:55:23 pikhq, also, since tiff is the common format here, you have basically packbits, lzw deflate to select from 21:55:30 alise: Eh, it's a bit whiny. But *shrug*. 21:55:31 pikhq, and there, deflate beats the other ones 21:55:41 I meant the contents, not the whininess. 21:55:48 Mmm. 21:55:52 Not especially. 21:56:25 I didn't write it to be whiny, anyway. Maybe it's just because I'm almost certain I'm right :P 21:56:30 alise, I always found file systems a very nice way to organise data though. *shrug* 21:56:34 Either that or I'm inherently whiny. 21:56:39 alise, the latter! 21:56:57 AnMaster: 1, you don't know any better systems. 2, we've established that you're basically designed for using Unix. 21:56:58 alise, also, go implement it 21:57:02 AnMaster: I find that file systems work very well for organising very specific forms of data. 21:57:03 That just makes /you/ faulty. :-) 21:57:04 AnMaster: I am. 21:57:11 alise, I do like plan9 though 21:57:12 Anything inherently hierarchical, basically. 21:57:14 I have to write the principles to create a design to implement it. 21:57:27 pikhq: Which is no reason to make everything a tree, of course. 21:57:33 alise, I just don't want to use it for daily use due to the lack for certain things, like supporting my disk controller 21:57:39 I find that hierarchical file systems fail where hierarchies fail. 21:57:40 alise: Yes. Just saying they work very well when a tree is natural. ;) 21:57:45 (at least last I checked) 21:57:50 Trees: Good for representing trees. 21:57:54 pikhq, yes 21:58:00 alise: Yes. 21:58:09 Yes. 21:58:48 * pikhq would like to see an OS where you just stick values in data structures when you want them to be organised somehow. 21:59:16 pikhq, that is scheduled to be invented right after the "do what I mean" operation 21:59:19 What if I "p" a null or non-printable ASCII character to a position? Will the rest of the line shift left? 21:59:19 Hi, my OS here. I'd ask you to purchase me, but it's free. 21:59:26 AnMaster: What? You believe serialising data structures is hard? 21:59:28 pikhq, still a few years off sadly :P 21:59:33 Uh. 21:59:35 alise, no... 21:59:39 Orthogonal persistence: Yeah, serialise objects to disk. Easy. 21:59:44 I'm asking for freaking Smalltalk. 21:59:48 A user interface where you create a data structure: That's what ... most UIs are. 21:59:55 pikhq, ah, then I misunderstood you 22:00:18 I just want to say "I want these images organised into a single group. I'll stick them into a bag." 22:00:31 pikhq, I thought you meant like "here are some data structures with values, organise them in a sensible way" 22:00:49 Nope. I want "Here are some values, stick them into this data structure." 22:00:50 my os is #usys btw, in case i haven't said that enough already 22:01:11 pikhq, well, try mov ;P (intentional misinterpreting) 22:01:38 "Saving"? Bah. That's sync. 22:01:54 Saving? Bah. That's done quicker than you can even notice. 22:01:58 actually saving makes sense sometimes 22:02:02 By the computer. 22:02:04 consider a database transaction 22:02:10 you want things either complete or not done at all 22:02:13 "Saving" is an action derived from my level of interest in the data. 22:02:15 of course, that isn't the common case 22:02:27 Incidentally, such an "auto-saving" system of course requires revision history. 22:02:32 What if I "p" a null or non-printable ASCII character to a position? Will the rest of the line shift left, potentially changing program flow? o.o 22:02:39 Or just deleting the entire contents of a document would permanently erase it; obviously untenable. 22:02:43 alise: I'm saying "Saving? Isn't that just making 100% sure it's on disk? ... So, sync()." 22:02:46 So we have everything versioned! 22:02:46 alise, you know how long saving a 700 MB image in RAM to disk takes? 22:02:47 Woo hoo 22:02:54 dev_squid: No, you just get a weird character at that location. 22:03:03 alise, even with no compression 22:03:07 AnMaster: One, deduplicative storage (plan 9 already does basically what i'm saying and it uses deduplicative storage 22:03:08 ) 22:03:10 Two, background tasks 22:03:16 Three, compression if it would work well 22:03:16 dev_squid: You can read it back with "g", or try to execute it (at your peril) :) 22:03:27 AnMaster: More than it takes to record a 10k modification transaction to that image on disk. :P 22:03:41 alise, 1) doesn't really work well when the data moved inside a block (and you can't do it per byte for obvious reason) 22:03:51 AnMaster: Yes it does. 22:03:57 Log storage. 22:04:02 Four, it's stored in the cloud anyway. 22:04:08 These are solved problems. :) 22:04:13 * alise stabs cpressey to death. Fatally! 22:04:17 Argh! 22:04:29 pikhq, well sure... that would take long to rerun! That switch from one colour space to another 22:04:33 changing all the values 22:04:36 pikhq, :P 22:04:54 I think it's safe to just assume that for anything even remotely in this vicinity, "AnMaster doesn't get it" is pretty axiomatic 22:05:02 * cpressey tries to regain credibility by explaining it's an actual cloud 22:05:22 cpressey: I like your thinking. 22:05:23 alise, I do see how it works for some cases. I just think the problems it solves are less than the new problems it introduces 22:05:26 You're promoted 22:05:32 AnMaster: So clearly if you want fast access, you then have (in the background) a write of the switched-colour-space file. 22:05:45 AnMaster: The existence of Plan 9 and its use by people for actual work using venti/fossil prove that this is a solved problem. 22:05:53 Because it does exactly this method of deduplicative storage. 22:06:03 alise, I never said venti was bad. On the contrary 22:06:05 I love venti 22:06:06 Solved problem. Seriously. Not interesting. No point discussing, because it's solved. 22:06:11 AnMaster: IT DOES EXACTLY WHAT I'M SAYING! 22:06:13 I just think there are good and bad usages for it 22:06:17 And if you wish to save space somehow, then you make the previous modification into a modification transaction that undoes that. 22:06:22 You haven't even used it for serious stuff 22:06:28 you just read about it on wikipedia, anyway 22:06:38 cpressey, cool, cool. A VERY neat thing would be being able to "p" a some char to a line, shifting the rest of the line left. That'd make for some very cool SMC. :) 22:06:39 alise, I have used it in qemu 22:06:45 and I liked it 22:06:47 Yeah, to create a hello world file 22:07:01 alise, ... why do you love making up shit? 22:07:01 dev_squid: The TOYS fingerprint has instructions for shifting lines and columns 22:07:29 AnMaster: Because I realised this conversation was fruitless some years ago 22:07:55 alise, maybe you would get more people interested if you wrote it in a less whiny style 22:08:02 it shouldn't be hard 22:08:39 It's only whiny insofar as I've thought about these concepts for ages and ages now so my presentation isn't very gentle 22:08:51 If I wanted to be a describer I wouldn't be a programmer 22:09:21 alise, further, yes I agree on *some* points, but far from all. Most importantly that while I agree file systems are suboptimal, they are better than the alternatives I have seen so far (venti is nice for some purposes, but have fun using it a partition with scratch data, like /tmp) 22:09:29 How are the coordinates calculated for "g" and "p"? 0,0 | 0,1 // 1,0 | 1,1 ? 22:09:32 :) 22:09:44 That being the first line, first character. :| 22:09:55 AnMaster: Of course existing solutions suck, that's why I'm building a better one 22:10:02 If there was an OS that didn't suck I wouldn't be making one 22:10:04 alise, describe it 22:10:16 on a concrete level 22:10:25 I haven't fully formulated it yet, only several outline designs, some concrete details, and some plans to combine them. 22:10:37 okay, that's a good start I guess 22:10:43 So what the fuck am I meant to do, ignore the problem just because I'm not some magician who can pull a fully concrete solution out of thin air? No 22:10:45 but can you provide the outline 22:10:56 alise: There's a difference between blunt and whiny. 22:10:58 I do wonder if I'm patient enough but I could explain one. 22:11:02 Gregor: Yeah, well, I'm whiny. 22:11:04 Gregor, agreed 22:11:11 Deal with it. :p 22:11:25 well, we can whine about you being whiny, can't we? 22:11:29 that way it evens out at least 22:11:42 alise: If you want our opinion, it is not our job to conform to you, it is your job to conform to us. And if you don't want our opinion, then why did you publish that file in here? 22:11:53 I wrote it for one person actually per their request 22:11:57 I posted it because I felt like it. 22:12:13 Perhaps somebody would be converted. 22:12:17 AnMaster: Sure. 22:12:57 I'll only explain the design in #usys because it'll be bad enough dealing with one set of stupid questions (I am a lovely and compassionate person) 22:12:58 If you have any desire to convert anybody, you'll have to write something a hell of a lot more compelling. I have no idea if the actual concepts you espouse are flawed, because I can't find them, I can only find your complaints about files, most of which seem to me to be unfounded and shortsighted. 22:13:15 Gregor: Just like your mom 22:13:23 "Author does not appear to have defined a reduction for *[a b], which appears to render much of the post meaningless. Too much raw pork & opium?" 22:15:00 alise, and, most data I need to store tends to form a tree. Even photos. It goes like panoramas//{output/final.tiff,{raw,intermediate}//} 22:15:16 so store it in an ordered list 22:15:26 alise, the last part, sure, that could work for it 22:15:33 the previous parts form a neat tree 22:15:35 and so store it as a tree-like structure 22:15:50 but if trees containing strings are so good, why don't you program in them? 22:15:57 Why do you use data structures, types, depending on the need? 22:16:04 alise, but then, why should I have to bother about data types. Which way is fastest for me to do it in? 22:16:21 So, what, you don't like C and Erlang? They have data structures, you know. 22:16:36 alise, I don't feel a need to program my file system 22:16:43 as in, I don't see it as a programming language 22:16:56 Your data structures in your program are the exact same kind of data as on a filesystem. 22:17:04 in some ways yes 22:17:10 In fact I really should heed my realisation that this is fruitless and stop talking. 22:17:11 alise, but what about taking notes on paper 22:17:18 do you organise it in data types there? 22:17:24 or do you just write it down 22:17:24 >_< 22:17:25 You're an idiot. 22:17:41 alise, no, the analogy is just as bad as your one 22:17:46 well, okay, it is a parody of your 22:17:50 so somewhat worse 22:17:53 If writing to paper involved taking all the things you're going to talk about and organising them into one, single-d alphabet with little relation to the actual semantics... sure. 22:17:54 not much though 22:18:07 Do you convert a mathematical formula before writing it down? No, you just write it down. 22:18:08 alise, no I meant, writing down notes during a lecture 22:18:10 It is structured. 22:19:23 alise, yes, but hardly in the way you suggest 22:19:29 now I'm going to sleep 22:19:31 night → 22:19:41 Thank god, the tedium is over. 22:19:59 I should have stuck to keeping everything about the OS private, but that just resulted in "hur where's your os mr project b slo". 22:20:12 alise: Eh, just write some code. :P 22:20:54 To do what? Until I can answer that question it is hopeless. 22:25:17 I do have a general idea how the system should be structured 22:25:24 s/$/, though./ 22:26:05 -!- Oranjer has joined. 22:43:53 -!- MizardX has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds). 22:46:33 Maybe I need to write Why Files Suck 2: Electric Boogaloo^W^WThe Better System 22:48:02 -!- MigoMipo has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 22:48:50 do it 22:48:59 no, too much work. 22:50:01 -!- coppro has joined. 22:50:35 well, don't write it, just sketch it out 22:51:08 -!- tombom_ has quit (Quit: Leaving). 22:54:48 Meh.

Any suggestions? 23:16:53 no one seems to have mentioned unlambda yet 23:17:31 alise: i guess it's all in what algebraic properties you preserve and which you discard 23:19:49 yours is going to break at least one of associativity and commutativity i think 23:20:46 0*0 = 0 => n = 0*(n/0) = 0*0*(n/0) = 0*n = 0 23:21:10 0*n =/= 0 in general 23:21:25 even for n an ordinary rational? 23:21:28 in fact there is no real one "0" 23:21:35 although 0/1 is usually what you think of 23:21:37 there's 0/n for all n 23:21:40 oh well 23:21:47 0/0 is special though... and behaves rather erratically 23:22:47 well something's going to be 23:23:10 oh, and 0/n != 0 23:23:28 because (n/0)^-1 = 1/(n/0) = 0/n and so (0/n)*(n/0) = 1 23:23:30 hm i guess that's obvious 23:24:00 I determined, I think using regular rational addition, that (m/0)+n = (m+n)/0, also 23:24:24 When you start doing things like (3/0)/(0/0)*(0/3), though, I have no fucking clue what the result is 23:24:45 that sounds like one of the wheel theory axioms 23:25:23 I derived it :P 23:25:48 hm not quite 23:26:46 if (x/0) exists then (x/0)^-1 exists. n^-1 = 1/n. 1/(x/y) = y/x. x*(1/x) = 1. therefore (x/0)^-1 = 0/x, and (0/x)*(x/0) = 1 23:27:36 what is this about (x/0) existing? 23:27:56 if that's associative and commutative, then everything having an inverse forms a group 23:27:58 hahah 23:28:27 Gracenotes: Step 1. Define x/0 to work. Step 2. Find a contradiction. Step 3. Mess with shit until it works. Step 4. Go to step 2. 23:28:53 Oh, and if you ever end up messing with shit so that 0 =/= -0, you lose. Mess with some other shit. 23:29:02 so what is the shit you've messed with 23:29:23 Well... 23:29:28 ℝ \ {0} is a group btw :o 23:29:29 We'll do it in terms of multiplicative inverse. 23:29:49 0^-1 = 1/0 23:30:00 (1/0)*0 = 1 23:30:13 (n/0)^-1 = 1/(n/0) = 0/n 23:30:19 (0/n)*(n/0) = 1 23:30:34 ((use the definition of rational addition here to derive:)) 23:30:45 (m/0)+n = (m+n)/0 23:30:53 And so on. 23:33:08 I'll leave oerjan to find the next contradiction :P 23:33:28 Oh, and n*(0/n) = 0. Obviously. 23:33:39 Otherwise it wouldn't be division, would it? :P 23:34:13 n*(0/n) = 0, 0*(n/0) = n. Plugging in n=0, we get overwhelming support in favour of 0*(0/0) = 0. 23:34:26 Since we have 0/n for every other n, we have 0/0 too. 23:34:30 I forget exactly how it's special. 23:34:51 i cannot deduce contradictions without axioms 23:34:52 (0/0)^-1 = 1/(0/0) = 0/0 23:34:57 so (0/0)*(0/0) = 1 23:35:05 oerjan: Infer them sucka :P 23:35:27 i am going to assume that multiplication is an abelian group 23:35:37 Hey, that gives you 0/0 = 1, pretty trivially. 23:35:44 hm yeah 23:35:45 But that breaks things so ssssh 23:35:49 oh 23:35:50 (I think it does, at least.) 23:35:57 I haven't found any breakage 23:36:01 so feel free to assume 0/0 = 1 :P 23:36:01 well then i found one didn't i >:) 23:36:19 Also when I say an integer I mean n/1. 23:36:25 Obviously. Anything else would be ridiculous. 23:37:03 is 0 + x = x ? 23:37:19 Which 0 do you mean? 0/1? 23:37:27 0/n>1? 23:37:32 hm 23:37:38 The 0/ns aren't really 0, though. 23:38:02 (0/n)*(n/0) = 1, whereas (0/1)*(1/0) = 1... er... okay. 23:38:08 But they aren't 0, so there. 23:38:13 They're some weird fractional 0. 23:38:19 x/y = x*(1/y) ? 23:38:22 0 + x = x, sure. 23:38:31 oerjan: Yes; I've defined all this in terms of multiplicative inverse. 23:38:45 Also, no additive inverse. Too Complicated For My Poor Brain. 23:38:55 (You get 0 =/= -0 pretty easily) 23:38:56 0/0 = everything, obviously 23:39:07 0/0 = 1, actually. Has to be in this system. 23:39:25 1/(n/0) = 0/n, (0/n)*(n/0) = 1 23:39:36 so 1/(0/0) = 0/0, and (0/0)*(0/0) = 1 23:39:39 and 0*(0/0) = 0 23:39:43 so it's 1 23:39:50 coppro: remember, 0*x =/= 0 all the time in this 23:40:26 except for x = 1, i assume 23:40:46 (0/1)*(1/1) = 0, yes. 23:40:52 But (0/0)*(1/1) = no fucking clue. 23:41:02 er, wait 23:41:04 that's 1*1 23:41:13 (0/0)*(1/1) = (1/1)*(1/1) = 1/1 23:41:20 (0/2)*(1/1) = beats me 23:41:34 i've seen nothing so far to disprove that multiplication is an abelian group (with 1 as identity) 23:41:49 i ended up having multiple multiplicative or additive identities iirc at one point 23:41:53 which means the latter is 0/2 23:41:55 and broke stuff trying to fix that 23:42:10 oerjan: it's an abelian group on ℝ\{0} 23:42:18 Gracenotes: shut up :D 23:42:52 also this is based on the rationals not the reals just so i have convenient notation 23:43:02 and as soon as my brain sees 0/pi it freezes up 23:43:20 continued fractions, man 23:43:29 man, man 23:43:30 ℚ\{0} too 23:43:58 (1/0)/(((0/2)+(3/0))*(1/3)) 23:44:01 that x/0 + y = (x+y)/0 looks weird, though 23:44:28 yeah, especially if you multiply by 0. oh wait 23:44:29 i'll repeat my derivation 23:45:11 (a/1)+(c/0)=(a0 + 1c)/(1*0) 23:45:19 (a/1)+(c/0)=(0 + c)/0 23:45:21 wait what? 23:46:11 ok only the denominator matters 23:46:19 (_/x)+(y/0) = (x*y)/0 23:46:30 no idea what +(0/n) does for n>1 23:46:41 Who pinged me? 23:46:45 me doesn't matter now 23:47:02 (a/b)+(0/d) = (ad + b0)/bd 23:47:07 (a/b)+(0/d) = ad/bd 23:47:15 * Sgeo__ is going to try tryruby again 23:47:23 it's down 23:47:25 why is gone 23:47:47 Sgeo__: it's a squatted domain afaict 23:47:54 so (1/2)+(0/3) = 3/6 23:48:00 Unless it's on a delayed disappearance scheme that triggered hours ago, it should be around 23:48:03 = 1/2 23:48:04 I was on it hours ago 23:48:09 huh? 23:48:14 Sgeo__: ? no you weren't 23:48:15 tryruby.org 23:48:18 tryruby died along with why 23:48:24 oh i see, a mirror 23:48:43 no 23:48:46 recreated from the ground up apparently 23:48:56 reusing the design strikes me as bad taste 23:49:00 With a strangely working backspace 23:49:05 ruby sucks anyway 23:49:17 oerjan: so I think x+(0/n) = x 23:49:29 for all n apart from 0, in which case it's x+(1/1) 23:49:45 alise: that sounds correc 23:49:48 *correct 23:49:48 Howso? 23:49:59 alise: hm that may mean i remembered correctly that someone from tryruby wanted to consolidate things with tryhaskell when the latter was announced 23:49:59 Of course, when I'm deriving all this I'm assuming the other party isn't a weird 0-fraction monster. 23:50:03 now go work out what (m/0)+(0/n) is 23:51:28 alise: if m is not 0, it's undefined still 23:51:51 No undefined, coppro. 23:51:55 We don't accept undefined. 23:52:20 Well you haven't defined m/0 where m != 0 yet 23:52:27 Yes, I have. 23:52:41 [23:29] alise: 0^-1 = 1/0 23:52:42 [23:29] alise: (1/0)*0 = 1 23:52:42 [23:29] alise: (n/0)^-1 = 1/(n/0) = 0/n 23:52:42 [23:29] alise: (0/n)*(n/0) = 1 23:52:52 m/0 is the fraction m/0. Rationals. 23:52:59 none of those provides an actual definition though 23:53:02 merely an identity 23:53:12 what is the definition of the rational 1/2? 23:53:21 things are their properties and relations 23:53:33 if you accept m/0 as a number in and of itself 23:53:47 if you accept 1/2 as a number in and of itself 23:53:54 0.5 23:54:01 that's a decimal representation of the rational 1/2 23:54:04 he doesn't need to define stuff. just take the free algebra of his operations and quotient by whatever equations still hold 23:54:04 then m/0 + 0/n is m/0 for non-zero n, and m/0 + 1 for n=0 23:54:05 you fail 23:54:05 alise, how does Ruby suck? 23:54:20 Sgeo__: "Let me count the ways. Uh, I've run out of tendrils." 23:54:40 to alise, every language sucks in too many ways 23:54:44 I can count ways that the current tryruby sucks 23:55:39 -!- Asztal has joined. 23:55:57 1) Wonky backspace. 2) Incorrectly interpreted a test as me completing the lesson 23:55:58 coppro: you do know what the rationals are right? 23:56:19 alise: Yes. 23:56:36 then you accept 1/2 as a number in and of itself, as opposed to "evaluating to 0.5" 23:56:37 alise: is m*n the usual value for every nonzero integer m, n ? 23:56:51 alise: I do. 23:56:51 similarly, n/0 for all n>0 and 0/n for all n>0. 23:56:59 n/0 is not a rational 23:57:04 -!- Azstal has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds). 23:57:09 coppro: It's a weirdtional. I'm defining an extension of the rationals. 23:57:21 oerjan: Rephrase please? 23:57:22 ok. In that case, I answered your question 23:57:25 [16:53:40]then m/0 + 0/n is m/0 for non-zero n, and m/0 + 1 for n=0 23:57:45 coppro: you are completely failing to understand the spirit of this thing. it may be a stupid thing but that is no reason for interpreting it even more stupidly than intended 23:57:51 Guys. 23:58:15 of course it is stupid ;) 23:58:16 *:) 23:58:25 alise: is (m/1)*(n/1) = (mn/1) for m, n ordinary nonzero integers? 23:58:28 I just made a cool program in Befunge. :) 23:58:28 http://pastie.org/850853 23:58:40 oerjan: Yes, purely rational calculations are still rational. 23:58:42 where the mn multiplication is ordinary integer multiplication 23:58:53 Ones involving 0-fractions are surely irrational and insane to the highest degree. 23:58:54 actually, I just realized something 23:59:03 alise: except multiplication by 0 23:59:17 division of 0 cannot be considered to equal 0 in all cases 23:59:19 Only if you involve a 0-fraction 23:59:26 (0/1)*normal = 0/1 23:59:31 0/2 too I think 23:59:34 except = 0/2 23:59:34 you have to have separate zeroes for each 0/n 23:59:39 er wait has to be 0/1 23:59:48 no it doesn't 23:59:48 0/2 23:59:50 Who likes it? 2010-03-03: 00:00:04 coppro: what? 00:01:01 alise: argh. (0/1)*normal = 0/1 violates my hypothesis that it's an abelian group :( 00:01:21 wait, does (m/0)*0 = m? 00:01:33 yes 00:01:37 oerjan: what should it be? 00:01:46 ok, never mind then 00:02:05 then I go by my previous answer 00:02:18 so does YOUR MOM 00:02:38 oerjan: (0/1)*normal = ? 00:02:50 alise: well if normal = 1/n then it should be 0/n 00:03:03 fair enough 00:03:07 i think i had that too anyway 00:03:10 what if normal = 2/n? 00:03:13 wait, what is normal here? 00:03:15 0/(2/n)? 00:03:40 coppro: not 0/m or n/0 where m>1 or n>0 00:03:41 alise: 0/(n/2) 00:03:47 okay. 00:03:48 alise: ok 00:04:11 I like Ruby symbols 00:04:22 4/5 * 0/1 = ? 00:04:33 for that matter, 4/5 * 0/2 = ? 00:04:56 0/(5/2) 00:04:56 0 in all cases, I think 00:05:53 oerjan: = 00:05:53 ? 00:06:03 it's nat/nat and 5/2 is not a natural 00:06:05 the latter one 00:06:07 Some Ruby syntax is strange 00:06:24 i guess it's just (0/1)/(5/2) 00:06:46 alise: you cannot get everything in the form m/n with naturals if you assume it's an abelian group and 0 cannot be combined in 00:06:47 = 0/5 00:07:10 oerjan: 0 is 0/1 00:07:23 0/n isn't anywhere near being 0 despite intuition 00:07:34 alise: that doesn't help _reduce_ the number of factors 00:08:12 maybe i expressed myself wrongly 00:08:13 0/(5/2) cannot be written simpler, afaict 00:08:44 it's the same as 0*(2/5), though 00:08:57 is it not 0/5? 00:09:44 0/(5/2) = (0/1)/(5/2) = (0*2)/(1*5) = 0/5 00:09:54 ouch 00:10:00 um... Ruby uses C++-like syntax for some I/O? 00:10:15 oerjan: i just done a bad :D 00:10:16 alise: if it's an abelian group then 0*x = 0 implies x = 1 00:10:40 0/5 =/= 0 00:10:49 0*(2/5) = 0/5 00:10:52 er 00:10:54 (0/2)*(2/5) = 0/5 00:11:03 or was it /, I forget by now 00:11:04 or even + 00:11:10 but point is, just as 1/2 isn't 1/1 00:11:13 the latter would be correct for a group 00:11:15 0/n isn't 0 00:11:38 indeed. and so 0/(5/2) cannot be simplified, although there are rearrangements 00:11:48 Like my random hash generator?

03:24:15 (wheat) 03:24:16 Oh, smultring. 03:24:31 Gregor: A smultring is a ring-formed cake cooked of smult. 03:24:41 lard ring 03:24:52 Cooked *in* smult. 03:25:01 deep fried dough rings 03:25:08 ... doughnuts. 03:25:15 Ah, that's the word. 03:25:29 same shape, but completely different size and recipe 03:25:51 What's a completely different size and recipe but the same shape? 03:26:05 smultring vs. doughnut 03:26:26 Are those both words in one language? 03:26:48 Oh, huh. "Smultring" is an English word. 03:26:52 well american-style doughnuts are sometimes sold in norway under that name 03:27:12 a smultring wouldn't have any kind of glaze 03:27:25 Not all doughnuts have glaze. 03:27:30 Glazed doughnuts have glaze. 03:27:45 just a small flat dough ring, dropped into hot lard where it expands to a torus shape 03:27:48 aha 03:27:57 So, a doughnut :P 03:28:18 It looks like smultrings are a certain type of smultringer! 03:28:32 Just like the salsa is a certain type of la salsa. 03:28:37 ic so not all american doughnuts conform to the norwegian stereotype of them :) 03:29:05 http://www.voodoodoughnut.com/ 03:29:33 Some are rings and glazed, some are rings and not glazed, some are circular but not rings, some are a rounded box with dimension ratio approximately 4:2:1. 03:29:41 The non-ring ones are all filled with something; none of the ring ones are. 03:29:52 uorygl: Well that's just not true. 03:30:11 Of course not. There's no law of physics requiring there to be filling in a non-ring doughnut. 03:30:13 Maple bars are not rings, and are not filled. 03:30:28 It's just that it never happens that way. 03:30:34 http://www.holmstad.no/ on the right are typical smultringer 03:30:44 uorygl: Except for ALL THE FUCKING TIME. 03:31:04 uorygl: You must have the worst doughnut shops in existence :P 03:31:21 Those smultringer look slightly different from our typical non-chocolate unglazed smultringer. 03:31:27 very plain, like most traditional norwegian bakery 03:31:35 Gregor: I've never even seen an actual doughnut shop, I think. 03:31:41 *tsk tsk* 03:31:51 Those smultringer remind me of Twinkies and onion rings. 03:32:19 We would call those "plain doughnuts" 03:32:23 i guess onion rings are the same except with onions as well inside 03:32:23 They're popular with coffee. 03:32:42 What do you call those things on the left? Fruktpizzaer? 03:33:04 "Fruit pizza"? :P 03:33:24 Actually, "frukt" means "ear", and "pizza" means "slap". 03:33:25 * uorygl coughs. 03:33:26 honestly i don't know 03:33:42 * Gregor slaps uorygl's ear 03:33:51 it _would_ seem a reasonable norw. name for it 03:34:14 http://www.voodoodoughnut.com/doughnuts/bacon_maple_bar.jpg <-- the greatest doughnut ever conceived.

Yes. 03:37:25 Shortcake is often, but not always, short and round ... it can also be tall and round, or even not round probably :P 03:37:30 This is America -- the country of the pizza bagel. 03:37:35 *barf* 03:37:41 :P 03:37:57 Hmm. I think an open-faced sandwich would qualify as a pizza under my definition. 03:38:35 (Also, shalom and ciao) 03:39:06 uorygl: I figured that since bread slices are sliced, they wouldn't qualify as a slab of dough, since they were in fact a loaf of dough, cut into a slab of bread. 03:39:09 An open-faced smörgås. 03:39:36 I guess that is true. 03:39:54 dammit all this food talk made me forget to eat -> 03:40:12 (I would have used an apostrophe, but I am currently using a Norwegian keyboard with no easy access to apostrophes.) 03:40:30 Now I know why people use acute accents as apostrophes. 03:40:35 It´s easier on some keyboards. 03:43:27 wait, you are actually in norway? 03:44:16 No, I just used a Norwegian keyboard layout. 03:44:18 Briefly. 03:44:23 the apostrophe is just left of the return key, btw 03:44:43 Here in Norway, that is an æ instead of an apostrophe. 03:44:47 to the right of æ 03:45:01 Oh. There isn't a key in between that and return. 03:45:21 oh 03:45:29 My home row: asdfghjkløæ 03:45:29 oerjan: What sort of freakish anti-coding keyboard do you have? 03:45:43 asdfghjkløæ' 03:45:46 Who uses a non-ASCII keyboard for coding? 03:46:05 Japanese people do. 03:46:05 oerjan: what, do you have an extra key in that row? 03:46:13 so it would seem 03:46:16 pikhq: Crazy Ruby-zealots 03:46:21 Though, their keyboard is QWERTY with a few extra buttons to control the IME. 03:46:28 A spammer discovered my hometown 03:46:42 it may appear that i have an entire column of convenient accent-making keys there 03:46:47 Got a spam claiming to be from the public library of my hometown 03:47:00 It's possible they were guessing. 03:47:02 I've pretty much got one set up right now. 03:47:15 (though with bindings instead of actual buttons) 03:47:16 Or maybe it wasn't spam, hm 03:47:41 * uorygl counts the keys on his keyboard. 03:47:57 105 03:48:03 Savant. 03:48:15 uorygl: although changing to EN layout is as simple as pushing alt-right shift. which i don't think i've ever done on purpose, except to undo after doing it accidentally :D 03:48:33 * oerjan does so now 03:48:42 Fourteen keys in the function row, fourteen in the number row, fourteen in the upper row, thirteen in the home row, twelve in the lower row, eleven in the space row. 03:49:21 I'm sure I could find more keys if I looked hard enough. 03:49:43 oerjan: Wait, you code with that horrifying layout? 03:49:51 seventeen, fifteen, fifteen, fifteen, fourteen, twelve 03:49:53 *Brackets* are on Alt-Gr! 03:49:58 pikhq: i don't code that much 03:50:17 and i've never typed for that kind of speed anyway 03:50:24 That also looks mildly annoying for English text in general. 03:51:07 although it's a laptop keyboard, so no numpad 03:52:27 You have a lot more keys than I do. 03:53:33 My top row: Esc, F1-12, eject.

In Linux. 03:59:01 (Magic SysRq) 04:03:01 I have a question. Does (http://pastie.org/851114) generate statistically-pseudorandom integers in range of 0-255? 04:03:48 I just modified one I found in the list of Bef sources on the Cat's-Eye site. 04:04:46 on determining whether something is statistically pseudorandom, i defer to the actual experts. 04:05:27 i mean, isn't the first rule of pseudorandom generators _not_ to try to roll your own. 04:05:42 You don't have much of a choice in Bef. 04:06:19 well i mean algorithm, not actual implementation. 04:06:38 It's a solid algorithm. 04:06:51 ok 04:07:17 then i'll sidle away carefully and leave it to the actual _befunge_ experts :D 04:07:19 What does "statistically pseudorandom" mean? 04:07:36 that it passes some common statistical tests, i presume 04:07:38 It basically takes rolls on 0-128, then adds it to 0-64, then adds it to 0-32, etc... 04:07:51 I mean... 04:08:37 Statistically, it doesn't yield results that are any more or less biased than the parent pseudorandom number generator is. 04:10:07 It seems like it is, but I just can't make sense of why there is a 1 following the set. That would make the range from 0 to 256, which is just wrong. 04:10:30 I'm pretty sure that 0 is a possible outcome. 04:10:59 Test it! 04:12:31 I'll test it with the original. 04:28:42 I feel like creating yet another billiard ball language. 04:28:47 I'll call it YABBL. 04:31:40 now you are just yabb'ling 04:35:45 Why does Ruby interest me so much? 04:40:50 Well, I can help you answer that question. 04:41:02 Why does Ruby interest you so much? 04:41:59 obviously it's because it's a gem of a language. 04:43:26 * Gregor slaps oerjan. 04:43:33 -!- Gracenotes has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 04:44:35 -!- Gracenotes has joined. 04:46:32 ouch 04:55:38 -!- Oranjer has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 04:56:13 -!- Oranjer has joined. 04:57:33 -!- Oranjer has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 04:58:01 -!- Oranjer has joined. 04:58:40 "But I Miss My C++ Iostream" 04:58:46 "Sometimes there's just no accounting for taste..." 04:59:58 YABBL described quickly: http://pastebin.ca/1820626 05:00:04 I hope it's correct. 05:00:13 Iostream, eh?

12:38:02 oerjan is just desperate for a friend 12:40:33 hmm, kqemu is rather slow on a netbook 12:40:48 either that, or knoppix is, but I'm guessing it's the emulation that's causing the issues 12:40:57 no virtualisation 12:41:02 so it's emulating 12:41:07 kqemu virtualises to some extent 12:41:12 yes, but your CPU can't 12:41:14 almost certainly 12:41:15 ah 12:41:19 what cpu is it?

12:46:42 if ctrl+alt+fN don't work ctrl+alt+backspace doesn't either 12:46:46 because, it's at the stage where it's only processing one keystroke every half-hour 12:46:49 both work, eventually 12:46:51 reisub probably would but i never bothered trying 12:46:55 easier to just punch reboot :p 12:46:56 so you want to use the one that kills the program you're running 12:47:09 scarf: well I don't want to wait half an hour 12:47:10 (hmm, what about the SAK, i.e. alt-sysrq-k?) 12:47:41 also it shouldn't matter if it crashes because i can just reboot and all my work will have been persisted ages before :D 12:47:51 IT WILL NOT DIE 12:48:21 anyway, I've decided to have really ambitious requirements for my version control system 12:48:36 it should be able to have exact equivalents (not just approximates) for everything in git, hg, and darcs 12:48:48 also, it should only have 5 commands (you can have more as abbreviations, but everything can be done in terms of those) 12:49:14 yet, I think it's possible 12:49:22 well, we're ignoring remote push/pull presumably as they're irrelevant to the actual vcs 12:49:26 as a bonus, the design I'm currently thinking about can do what rsync does as well 12:49:29 so you need 12:49:37 alise: I'm assuming that they can be implemented the same way as local push/pull 12:49:38 some sort of thing to record changes, some sort of thing to merge two repositories 12:49:43 so I say 4 commands 12:49:54 two _essential_ ones, and then two ones to keep things running 12:49:58 alise: reverts?

Badly. 15:20:53 I don't see any parentheses abuse in Ruby 15:20:58 Are there other bad parts of Lisp? 15:21:14 paren abuse isn't really a bad part of lisp 15:22:33 Sgeo_: ugh 15:22:41 you just made me want to punch you :| don't do that 15:25:12 -!- ais523 has quit (Quit: Page closed). 15:25:15 Sgeo_: fodijg firstly it's not abuse it's the syntax and it's not like that for no reason, secondly it's not actually a problem 15:25:24 thirdly the bad parts of lisp are nothing to do with that whatsoever 15:31:04 I'll agree with with the first part, question the second part, and note that the third part seems to be a conclusion 15:33:21 What are the bad parts of Lisp? 15:34:29 hi 15:34:45 Sgeo_, the attitude non-lisp people have towards the language is the worst thing 15:34:59 I would think that I don't really care about such petty things, but actually it is very frustrating 15:35:08 now it's booted and seems to be working normally <-- did you figure out the cause scarf ? 15:35:15 no 15:35:26 although I'm currently blaming either kqemu or hardware problems 15:35:46 I would recommend that you run memtest during the next night. 15:36:20 AnMaster: I've already done long memtest runs on here 15:36:26 I don't think it's the memory that's at fault 15:36:27 lol, Sgeo_ thinks the parens in lisp are there for no reason 15:36:29 scarf, and kqemu? I thought qemu was able to use kvm or something nowdays 15:36:34 i take it back you are stupid :/ 15:36:36 alise, no, I know the reason. 15:36:41 AnMaster: it is, but kvm isn't installed here 15:36:44 ah 15:36:47 So that order of precedence doesn't need to exist 15:36:49 (I think) 15:36:50 "question the second part" "and it's not like that for no reason" 15:36:53 Sgeo_: HAHAHA 15:36:54 no 15:37:14 ignorance isn't the problem here it's that you made wild generalisations without knowing things about lisp 15:37:18 scarf, but does the hardware support it in theory? 15:37:28 no idea 15:37:32 " secondly it's not actually a problem" 15:37:40 scarf, some flag in /proc/cpu 15:37:44 You didn't say "secondly there is a reason" 15:37:53 you could paste the flags line, since I don't remember which flag exactly 15:38:00 vmi or something iirc 15:38:07 all very nice for you to question it but you obviously don't know the first thing about programming in lisp soo... 15:38:43 the bad parts of lisp... untyped syntax, needing macros to do lots of things... 15:38:52 alise: I know the first thing about programming in lisp, but I'm stuck on the third or fourth 15:38:54 that's inherent to lisp, as far as common lisp goes... all bad 15:38:59 scheme is mostly good. 15:39:03 (r5rs) 15:39:13 alise, scheme has those clean macros though 15:39:30 and? 15:39:31 argh, mental lag 15:39:36 nothing wrong with hygienic macros 15:39:43 indeed that was my point 15:39:53 yeah but having to use them is still bad 15:40:00 you need to do tons of macros in lisps when normal lazy functions would suffice 15:40:12 alise, I was responding to " the bad parts of lisp... untyped syntax, needing macros to do lots of things..." you see. I didn't notice you mentioned scheme between me starting typing and when I hit enter 15:40:25 I'm somewhat tired. 15:40:28 well you still have to use them a lot which is the actual problem 15:40:32 * Sgeo_ wonders if he'll have nostalgia for There 15:40:52 alise, but lisp macros are awesome. 15:41:13 the awesomeness is the language's own downfall 15:41:19 hm maybe 15:41:21 http://www.there.com/ OH LOOK let another shitty 3d virtual reality 15:41:32 I am utterly shocked, Sgeo_ 15:41:33 needing to use awesome in order to get work done may be awesome, but it means there's something wrong in the rest of the language 15:41:48 scarf: hey i disagree 15:41:52 -!- cpressey has joined. 15:41:53 dependent types - printf 15:41:56 so thar :P 15:42:05 printf doesn't /need/ dependent types, they just make it better 15:42:08 but the fact that lisp requires you to use macros all the time is a problem due to the nature of macros 15:42:12 scarf, yeah, backtracking with macros + call/cc... (seen that, think it was from that "fixnum days" tutorial?) 15:42:13 scarf: well, yes. 15:42:18 so that's good awesome 15:42:20 alise, every time I've been there [twice], it's left a bad taste in my mouth. 15:42:45 The 3D has too many polygons for your liking? 15:42:46 :P 15:42:48 lol 15:43:07 Not enough room for creativity. Although it's not as bad as IMVU 15:43:11 I hate IMVU with a passion 15:43:48 Until someone shows me how to get to a populated chatroom in IMVU [and I mean more than 10 people], I'll continue to hate it 15:44:07 alise, I'm not sure lisp actually requires you to use macros 15:44:21 ooh time for some AnMaster pedancy 15:44:56 alise, I was about to add that it would be rather painful to code in lisp without the macros though 15:45:09 you have macros no matter what - "special forms" 15:45:16 well 15:45:20 yes, yes you do 15:45:23 hmm wait 15:45:27 there is one way you could do it 15:45:39 (quote-symbol (list 97 98)) == 'ab 15:45:44 and then use (list x) 15:46:05 (if (= (+ 2 2) 4) (list (quote-symbol (list ... numbers spelling 'display' ... 15:46:07 alise, hm but is ' a macro? 15:46:11 'x -> (quote x) 15:46:13 special form 15:46:18 just like a macro except implemented in the compiler 15:46:22 you can implement quote yourself but it's a bitch 15:46:32 (Oleg did it iirc) 15:46:33 alise, well, yeah, I guess you could regard special forms as a special sort of macros 15:46:37 didn't think of that 15:46:44 http://okmij.org/ftp/Scheme/quote-as-macro.txt 15:46:46 quote as a macro 15:46:55 relies on string->symbol though which is /so/ cheating 15:48:56 Regardless, you need *some* special forms. They can't all be defined as macros. I'm not sure what the discussion is about, but I think there's a distinction between the two. 15:48:59 alise, yes that is as my-quote. I have no idea if there is some way to make it work for the actual ' 15:49:23 'x is just syntax for (quote x). 15:49:32 so just name the macro "quote". 15:49:43 cpressey: Actually, I think you don't. 15:49:47 Well, actually, maybe you don't. 15:49:59 (lambda (list (quote-symbol 97)) (quote-symbol 97)) 15:49:59 (I mean, it doesn't really follow normal rules, like (foo bar '(1 2)) is valid, but putting my-quote at that point would require ( in front of my-quote, not after, wouldn't it?) 15:50:00 -> 15:50:04 (lambda (a) a) 15:50:04 alise, cya! 15:50:09 So all you need is lambda, one single primitive function. 15:50:11 AnMaster: no 15:50:17 'x EXPANDS TO (quote x) 15:50:18 at PARSE TIME 15:50:22 alise, ah, wasn't that type of arrow 15:50:31 cpressey: It basically relies on the fact that numbers quote themselves. 15:50:36 By "question it" I meant I wanted an explanation >.> 15:50:44 You could have no numbers and an evaluation rule () -> () if you want loads of fun. 15:50:53 Sgeo_: it just isn't an issue in practice when writing lisp code 15:50:55 alise, indeed, and that is what I thought you couldn't hack in using macros. 15:50:59 Ah 15:51:07 AnMaster: well that's syntax not macros or special forms :P 15:51:16 cpressey: And since the lambda calculus is good enough for anything... 15:51:35 alise, of course. A pitty you can't do that to the syntax then. We need more powerful macros here. ;) 15:51:39 cpressey: Oh, if you want to build all of a regular Lisp on top of it you need one special form to define macros. 15:51:42 AnMaster: Reader macros 15:51:53 cpressey: You could have it as a function but that makes no sense; macros are compile-time. 15:52:13 alise, hm, does that actually exist? Or is it a proposed solution? 15:52:23 AnMaster: Exists. 15:52:37 heh, in scheme? 15:52:38 Common Lisp and some Schemes have them. 15:52:41 ah 15:52:49 http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/HyperSpec/Body/f_set_ma.htm 15:52:50 example 15:52:56 * AnMaster looks 15:53:40 Hey, those are functions. 15:53:45 wonderful 15:53:48 cpressey: So if you have reader macros, you can just define your own mega-quoting stuff. 15:53:58 You won't even need any syntax except for (, ) and atoms. 15:54:12 (numbers can be done like (() () ()) = 3) 15:54:16 uyck 15:54:36 use binary for goodness sake: ((()) (())) 15:54:47 Plus cons, () evaluates to (), quote-symbol : some-representation-of-an-atom-using-()s -> symbol, and lambda (a function). 15:55:07 Put a reader macro definition function on top of that (pass in the relevant stream-accessing functions yielding the ()-y representation), and tada. 15:55:15 alise: please stop, you're going to accidentally invent Ursala 15:55:18 You can define numbers, comments, and quote. 15:55:24 Tada! Lisp. 15:55:27 scarf: :D 15:55:32 alise no lisp is defined this way :| 15:55:34 alise, It would be an awsome to use reader macros to implement a language with as much syntax as perl on top of lisp 15:55:37 MissPiggy: BUT 15:55:37 IT 15:55:38 CAN 15:55:38 BE 15:55:42 yes I agree 15:55:46 and it is much simpler too 15:55:48 and it would be hilarious 15:55:55 I'm just saying in reality lisp is a lot less pure 15:56:07 alise: please stop, you're going to accidentally invent Ursala <-- Ursala? 15:56:12 I'm not familiar with that 15:56:17 AnMaster: you're lucky 15:56:18 you don't want to be 15:56:20 * MissPiggy wonders why anmaster has to quote so much 15:56:28 scarf, an esolang? 15:56:28 MissPiggy: he only has one line of scrollback 15:56:32 < AnMaster> alise: please stop, you're going to accidentally invent Ursala <-- Ursala? <--- why does have to quote so much? 15:56:33 it's in the BancSTAR category; languages which aren't meant to be eso, but act like it 15:56:45 AnMaster: Eight Queens in Ursala: 15:56:46 queens = 15:56:46 %np+~command.options.&h.keyword.&iNC; -+ 15:56:47 ~&iNC+ file$[contents: --<''>+ %nLP*=; * '<'%='[ '+ ','%=', '+ '>'%=' ]']+ ~&rSSs+ nleq-<&l*rFlhthPXPSPS, 15:56:47 ~&i&& ~&lNrNCXX; ~&rr->rl %tLnLtXLLWXMk+ ^/~&l ~&lrrhrSiF4E?/~&rrlPlCrtPX ~&r; ^|/~& ^|T\~& -+ 15:56:47 -<&l^|*DlrTS/~& ~&iiDlSzyCK9hlPNNXXtCS, 15:56:48 ^jrX/~& ~&rZK20lrpblPOlrEkPK13lhPK2; ~&i&& nleq$-&lh+-, 15:56:48 ^/~&NNXS+iota -<&l+ ~&plll2llr2lrPrNCCCCNXS*=irSxPSp+ ^H/block iota; *iiK0 ^/~& sum+- 15:56:49 MissPiggy, ? 15:56:52 lol 15:57:04 alise, heh 15:57:08 AnMaster: So I think you should just forget about wanting to know anything about Ursala. 15:57:17 scarf, ah, those are kind of sad yet awesome at the same time 15:57:20 What does "Plain English" or whatever it's called count as? 15:57:23 Same category? 15:57:28 AnMaster: Let's put it this way: You create a tuple by changing the operator precedence of the previous expressions (postfix) 15:57:41 AnMaster: that would compile into code that looked like ((() () ()) (() () () (() ())) etc 15:57:45 alise, wut? 15:57:55 alise: at least, the two come to the same thing 15:58:02 We have fun with esolangs, why can't we have fun with supposed non-esolangs that are as strange as esolangs? 15:58:08 we can 15:58:16 alise and I have had endless fun laughing at Ursala 15:58:21 scarf, what was this language made for? 15:58:26 AnMaster: numerical computation 15:58:30 AnMaster: LSD 15:58:33 not that you could tell by looking at it 15:58:37 they go perfectly together 15:58:59 scarf, then: by who? when? for whom? 15:59:04 I'd say something about J, but J makes me want to run screaming too 15:59:10 J isn't all that bad 15:59:11 J is wonderful 15:59:14 nothing like Ursala 15:59:18 it is just.... very terse? 15:59:25 AnMaster: It's TWO LANGUAGES 15:59:27 I'd say Ursala tries to imitate some J concepts but fails 15:59:31 one is the ldfkjsdfoweriujWERIOJEIORJ thing 15:59:34 cpressey: You could have it as a function but that makes no sense; macros are compile-time. <-- I submit this is the real debate to have. 15:59:36 all functions are postfix and right-associative 15:59:44 alise, J? possibly, I don't know J. I have only seen J code 15:59:44 and you do parens by saying "parenthesize the last N expressions" as an operator 15:59:53 AnMaster: no, ursala 15:59:56 Very incomprehendible to someone who doesn't know J. Python is somewhat readable, Haskell is sometimes somewhat readable, J is impossible 16:00:00 alise, ah. hm 16:00:07 seriously, it's just crazy 16:00:13 Sgeo_: Only because of what you know. 16:00:23 what J is very readible 16:00:24 I am /tired/ of this "intuitive" rubbish based on relative knowledge 16:00:37 alise: you missed the bit where arguments get implied into expressions if they're missing from the syntax 16:00:42 haskell is mostly unreadible 16:00:43 AnMaster: also, types are done by simply guessing 16:00:52 if you run a program you have to specify the type to cast its result to 16:00:55 e.g. ~&B is a synonym for ~&lrB 16:00:56 Erm, my statement was supposed to be relative to what someone who hasn't seen the language being compared knows 16:00:59 unless it's the accumulation of 10 PhDs on writing readible code 16:01:01 scarf, where can one read more about it? Plus the questions above 16:01:04 scarf: what's that operator that has no formal definitions? 16:01:11 alise: you could try web-surfing for it 16:01:11 AnMaster: http://www.basis.uklinux.net/ursala/manual.pdf, http://www.basis.uklinux.net/ursala/ 16:01:13 alise: I'll check 16:01:16 scarf: I am 16:01:23 huh 16:01:54 There's an operator that has no formal definitons? *cries* 16:01:55 *shudder* 16:02:05 well, it does, they just haven't figured it out yet 16:02:07 is ursala real? 16:02:12 alise, what is the other language then? 16:02:13 because it's just a list of special cases 16:02:14 I could never decide if it was a joke or not 16:02:15 MissPiggy: Yep 16:02:17 AnMaster: the other part of ursala 16:02:20 "The I constructor has four practical uses shown in Table 2.2, as well as any generalizations of those obtained by using lrX in place of b and/or any single valued deconstructor in place of r or l. Other generalizations can be used experimentally but their effect isunspecified and subject to change in future revisions." 16:02:27 alise, which is all but "ldfkjsdfoweriujWERIOJEIORJ"? 16:02:28 "(~&w/.)*~+ ~&s+ * skip/7; takewhile -=letters--digits--'.'" 16:02:31 "*= skip/*9+ =]'Address: '*~+ ~&hm+ ask(bash)/<>+ <.'nslookup '-->" 16:02:31 err 16:02:32 ah 16:02:36 those first and last quotes are mine 16:03:03 single quotes delimit variable names in Ursala, i.e. Ursala "x" is equivalent to Perl$x 16:03:08 alise, and I guess this split is done in a way that makes no sense? 16:03:17 AnMaster: you just intermingle them freely 16:03:18 scarf, that was double quotes? 16:03:25 those double quotes were mine 16:03:29 AnMaster: yes 16:03:31 alise, then what makes them different? 16:03:35 s/single quotes/double quotes/ 16:03:37 alise, I didn't mean your 16:03:39 scarf, ah 16:04:41 I have to go for a while, guys; moving to another temporary residence lulz. 16:04:48 See you soon! ...Hopefully! 16:04:53 I'm just going to pretend that Ursula code looks sane to someone who knows Ursula, same way J is readable to J programmers. 16:04:55 -!- alise has quit (Quit: alise). 16:04:57 ok, bye, and that sounds worrying 16:04:58 I ASK YOU, is it a mere coincidence that BancSTAR was developed for the banking industry *and* the author or Ursala has a degree in finance? 16:05:22 Hm yes, that did sound worrying. 16:05:26 cpressey: possibly not, the finance/banking industry is a source of some of the biggest problems in programming 16:06:20 both what cpressey mention and what alise said sounds worrying 16:09:19 scarf: Given the context, I'm not sure whether to interpret the "in" in your statement as "that can be addressed by" or "that are caused by" 16:09:47 um, I don't think I meant what I said 16:09:57 would "some of the most problematic programs" work better? 16:10:20 Yeah, that works. 16:11:33 -!- jcp has joined. 16:16:19 -!- dev_squid has joined. 16:23:53 * Sgeo_ goes to look for BancSTAR tutorials 16:24:13 Sgeo_: I don't think there are any 16:24:23 Any documentation, then? 16:24:30 no 16:24:37 it was a proprietary trade-secret lang 16:24:56 -!- dev_squid has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds). 16:25:50 :( 16:26:09 There was an example source posted on The Turing Tarpit site. But that was on geocities. Not sure if it was put back up? 16:26:22 geocities :( 16:26:31 I have a backup 16:26:43 (of TTT, NOT of all of geocities) 16:27:17 is it on reocities? 16:27:30 or archive.org? 16:27:34 both were trying to back up the whole thing 16:27:58 http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/Station/2266/tarpit/tarpit.html 16:28:01 was its orig url 16:28:17 Yup, reocities works 16:28:48 http://www.reocities.com/ResearchTriangle/Station/2266/tarpit/bancstar.html 16:30:18 cpressey, btw do not assign the middot char to anything in befunge-111 16:30:49 ... because the befunge-98 spec allows for use of characters above 128 for private-use 16:30:52 cpressey, doing so would break the only known case of "values above 127 being used for implementation thing" 16:30:54 scarf, yes 16:30:58 and IFFI actually uses middot as a private-use character 16:31:00 and the middot is used in IFFI 16:31:05 is there some sort of registry to declare these things? 16:31:20 cpressey, IFFI being a fingerprint for befunge/intercal integration 16:32:20 -!- dev_squid has joined. 16:32:31 AnMaster: OK. I had no plans to. 16:33:03 AnMaster: IFFI's the fingerprint, CFFI's the handprint 16:33:08 and the implementation itself is mostly cfunge 16:33:14 hmm, I should direct that at cpressey, really 16:33:19 indeed 16:33:25 I'm not entirely sure he knew it was possible to link Befunge and INTERCAL programs 16:33:28 scarf, handprints are going to be deprecated in 111 16:33:35 scarf, well true 16:33:44 AnMaster: you still need to put something in the y output 16:34:09 scarf, "reserved for compat reasons" is the plan last I heard 16:34:24 fair enough 16:34:33 Handprints are going to be implementation-defined... handprints are *already* implementation-defined... 16:35:09 No, I had no idea. 16:35:15 No, there is no registry. 16:35:24 ah 16:36:03 anyway, a single entry point at the top-left turns out to be inadequate for embedding Befunge as a scripting language within INTERCAL programs 16:36:12 so the middots mark additional points to check to see if they're entry points or not 16:36:23 Hm, COME FROM-style? 16:36:37 That sounds horrible, at any rate. 16:37:15 that's sort-of the point 16:37:19 cpressey, scarf (maintainer of c-intercal (ick)) wrote a fingerprint for cfunge, that allows this integration, cfunge is built as a library and statically linked to the compiled INTERCAL program (only if it uses befunge linking of course) 16:37:35 IFFI the fingerprint is an implementation of all the INTERCAL flow-control operations in Befunge 16:37:38 the program is loaded from an unsigned char * array 16:38:02 (meh, small technical incorrectness in that type, but doesn't really matter) 16:38:30 if you use it with CFFI/ick_ecto_b98 the implementation, then it additionally links those flow-control operations in the Befunge with the flow-control operations in the INTERCAL 16:38:48 so you can do the equivalent of COME FROM (5) in the Befunge and come from line (5) in the INTERCAL program, or vice versa 16:39:04 scarf, wasn't it come from x,y ? 16:39:14 nope, line numbers 16:39:20 so it fits in with the INTERCAL program 16:39:23 scarf, even for befunge code side? 16:39:26 yep 16:39:30 you can even do computed COME FROMs 16:39:36 scarf: Dare I ask, does this support self-modification? Like if I 'p' a middot into the playfield... 16:39:42 scarf, I mean, comming from befunge 16:39:44 to intercal 16:40:02 cpressey: it supports self-modification for everything but middot locations, at the moment; the middots are more compiler directives, they vanish on program load 16:40:15 didn't they turn into M or something? 16:40:18 yep 16:40:33 come to think of it, it wouldn't be that hard to change the directives at runtime; I'm just not sure if it's useful 16:40:37 scarf, could you come from a position in befunge too? I don't remember 16:40:59 AnMaster: M5C M5L is an infinite loop 16:41:07 if I've remembered the syntax correctly 16:41:14 I may have got that backwards 16:41:27 scarf, well, come from is more like "if we get to that point, jump here" 16:41:37 yep 16:41:40 so, it should be able to target anywhere shouldn't it? 16:41:46 it can target any line label 16:41:48 like COME FROM befunge (2,4) 16:41:52 in intercal 16:41:53 come from can only hit lines which actually have a label on 16:41:59 (well, with different syntax of course) 16:42:11 so in the INTERCAL, you write COME FROM (5), then it'll come from an M5L in the Befunge 16:42:23 ah right 16:42:42 scarf, btw, is there anything in IFFI that can interact weirdly with k? I don't remember 16:43:01 AnMaster: quite possibly 16:43:14 but the fingerprint isn't /very/ feral, so probably not 16:43:16 ooh kM? 16:43:21 that sounds fun 16:43:37 M does nothing when actually encountered, though; it just specifies a location to start executing at 16:43:40 because, well, k calls execute_instruction in a loop 16:43:53 scarf, hm 16:43:53 M means "here might be an entry point" 16:44:10 scarf, what about *exit* points then? 16:44:12 and is written with a middot in the original source 16:44:20 AnMaster: they're the usual @, etc 16:44:28 scarf, no, that isn't what I asked 16:44:30 otherwise, to exit you use fingerprint commands 16:44:34 scarf, could you come from a position in befunge too? I don't remember 16:44:34 AnMaster: M5C M5L is an infinite loop 16:44:37 I meant 16:44:40 come from befunge 16:44:42 to intercal 16:44:46 -!- jcp has quit (Quit: I will do anything (almost) for a new router.). 16:44:46 AnMaster: you put a line label in 16:44:50 along the lines of M5L 16:44:58 and it can come from there 16:45:01 scarf, and then when that label is encounterd in the befunge program it jumps to intercal? 16:45:04 you need the M, because it might NEXT to that line later 16:45:08 AnMaster: yep 16:45:19 scarf, then how could kM *not* cause issues? 16:45:35 because, it starts executing at the M 16:45:37 oh wait, you check that in your top loop? 16:45:47 scarf, shouldn't it jump to intercal when it hits the M? 16:45:50 that is what I thought you said 16:45:54 no, when it hits the L 16:46:03 otherwise, how could it know what the number was? 16:46:06 scarf, okay, so what about kL then? 16:46:16 AnMaster: then it returns on the first L, so the others don't happen 16:46:27 scarf, returns from where? 16:46:29 sort of like for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++) return; 16:46:33 in C 16:46:44 scarf, in the main loop? Well k doesn't go by the main loop 16:46:45 AnMaster: well, gets come-frommed, or whatever 16:46:51 remember it calls execute_instruction directly 16:46:53 AnMaster: that isn't in the main loop, that's in the fingerprint I think 16:46:54 in a loop 16:47:03 hmm, I'm actually going to read the source now 16:47:21 scarf, it would need to somehow get up through run_iterate() (which implements k) 16:47:26 a longjmp is all I can think of 16:47:52 hah, I see what's hapened 16:47:53 *happened 16:47:57 scarf, oh? 16:48:04 it sets a flag in the code, multiple times, which does nothign 16:48:08 ah 16:48:13 then when it goes back to the main loop, it simulates only having happened once 16:48:26 so you get the effect of returning on the first call, although actually it ignores all but the last then returns on the last call 16:48:27 * AnMaster wonders how longjmp() interacts with __attribute__((regparm(3))) 16:48:51 (I hope it handles it) 16:49:52 scarf, hm, does L take the line number as a parameter on stack? 16:49:58 yep 16:50:09 if so, won't it be overwritten to actually be the last one given to L? 16:50:12 in a k loop 16:50:20 also, what does negative line numbers do? 16:50:26 AnMaster: yes, it will 16:50:36 scarf, and is line 0 valid? 16:50:38 and line numbers outside the range 1..65535 are ignored 16:50:54 scarf, not very befungeish, silently ignoring 16:51:08 AnMaster: that's the correct behaviour for computed COME FROM 16:51:14 hrrm 16:51:18 a COME FROM should do nothing if aimed at an illegal line number 16:51:30 okay 16:52:00 would be fun to do this as a free standing befunge fingerprint. Not sure how much it depends on ick internals 16:52:19 Is Ruby a good language to first try to learn continuations in? 16:52:33 you'd have to separate it out to some extent; it depends on ick internals for the control flow deliberately, because it needs to be the same control flow as in the INTERCAL program 16:52:44 well yes 16:53:12 scarf, what I actually meant (but didn't say I realise) was: "how hard would it be to rewrite those bits for freestanding" 16:53:29 shouldn't be massively hard; INTERCAL control flow is relatively easy to implement 16:53:41 hard to /use/, but easy to implement 16:53:55 one of the few easy parts to implement? 16:54:17 scarf, also, what about memory leaks? Is there any way to remove a come from? 16:54:43 Sgeo_: Actually, I think it is. 16:54:55 scarf, I'm not very happy with REFC and such 16:54:56 AnMaster: the way it works is, whenever a line label's encountered, it starts executing in every cardinal direction from every middot, to see if it comes across a comefrom 16:55:05 which *requires* you to leak memory basically 16:55:20 why is that a leak? 16:55:26 it uses a fixed amount of memory in every case 16:55:37 scarf, you can't remove refences, just add new and dereference existing 16:55:38 because the set of middots is fixed at compiletime 16:55:44 AnMaster: references to what? 16:55:48 references* 16:55:55 scarf, cells 16:55:57 x,y 16:56:05 oh, you can't add new either 16:56:06 http://catseye.tc/projects/funge98/library/REFC.html 16:56:09 scarf, ^ 16:56:13 ah, you're talking about REFC, rather than IFFI 16:56:16 scarf, yes 16:56:29 scarf, I mean, I want to avoid this scenario for a fingerprint 16:56:46 I'm not sure what the point of REFC is 16:56:50 clearly you need reference-counting 16:56:59 Why not just share vectors 16:57:03 scarf, for funge cells? Don't be daft XD 16:57:08 no, for vectors 16:57:19 scarf, well, how would I track them 16:57:24 cpressey: maybe it's so you can have vectors /of/ vectors 16:57:54 nothing forbids you to output it, then later ask the user to input the same number 16:58:01 and so on 16:58:10 AnMaster: let's say, R creates a reference with a refcount of 1, D dereferences a reference, C increases a reference's refcount, X decreases a reference's refcount, and if it falls to 0 it can't be used in future 16:58:18 I mean, refcounting in the fingerprint 16:58:25 -!- tombom has joined. 16:58:28 scarf, well that would require changing the fingerprint 16:58:32 which is unrealistic 16:58:40 http://etext.virginia.edu/toc/modeng/public/ManFour.html 16:58:42 It does say "Under development" 16:58:43 facts about 4our 16:58:48 the fingerprint as written requires a memory leak, yes 16:58:54 cpressey, doesn't all your fingerprints almost? 16:59:05 also, still in beta (oh wait it isn't) 17:00:48 It should probably just be burnt 17:01:07 There' 17:01:25 what? 17:01:38 There's a saying about how the only thing worse than generalizing from a single example is generalizing from no examples at all. 17:02:05 # of use cases for REFC = 0, so... garbage collect it :) 17:02:37 cpressey, how do you know? 17:02:47 well mycology doesn't count I guess 17:02:54 AnMaster: Feel free to prove me wrong 17:03:09 cpressey, is writing one now allowed? ;P 17:03:30 linked lists? 17:03:35 trees? 17:03:40 scarf, hm interesting 17:03:46 REFC's about the best you can do for writing object-oriented funge, too 17:03:56 oh? 17:04:01 objects are immutable 17:04:02 but that really needs a fingerprint of its own 17:04:12 AnMaster: yep, but you can make slightly mutated copies, Haskell-style 17:04:13 also what about rc/funge's FOBJ? 17:04:22 (not very good OO though) 17:04:28 and I don't have the whole list of rc/funge fingerprints memorised, for presumably obvious reasons 17:04:36 (object, but not most of the concepts of OO) 17:05:06 http://rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#FOBJ 17:05:55 hmm, that appears to be a Trefunge-only fingerprint 17:05:57 I don't see a strong argument for using references instead of vectors (even for linked lists, objects, etc.) except for some pie-in-the-sky notion of writing a *funge polyglot, e.g. Befunge and Trefunge. 17:06:14 hah 17:06:21 cpressey, I didn't think of that one 17:06:36 cpressey: oh, I forgot that vectors couldn't be arbitrary-length 17:06:45 hmm, the case of trees still applies, though 17:07:10 AnMaster: in efunge, you wouldn't need to have a memory leak 17:07:11 scarf: Why can't you just store the vector of the child node, in the parent node? 17:07:24 scarf, hm? 17:07:27 cpressey: because then it wouldn't fit into one cell, unless you had bignums 17:07:27 And yes, you do have memory leaks with REFC. 17:07:30 scarf, how 17:07:36 scarf: Why do you have to use one cell? 17:07:47 AnMaster: you can implement R as mingling all the elements of the vector, and D as unmingling them 17:07:56 cpressey: you don't have to, but you might want to, for code simplicity reasons 17:08:02 scarf, interesting idea 17:08:09 scarf: That' 17:08:23 that'? 17:08:23 cpressey: your comment was cut off 17:08:23 That's not what I call a strong argument. 17:08:34 Dude 17:08:38 cpressey, scarf's suggestion about mingling was quite nice 17:08:39 ' is right next to Enter 17:08:45 cpressey: well, think about, say, STRN or TOYS; those exist only for code simplicity too 17:08:45 cpressey, true 17:08:54 also, I'm not complaining about the cut-off, just pointing it out in case you missed it 17:08:56 cpressey, on some layouts at least 17:09:02 (including mine) 17:09:10 there's # between ' and enter on this keyboard 17:09:53 asdfghjklöä' 17:10:24 asdfghjkl;'# 17:10:43 the old pond a frog jumps in splash? 17:10:54 MissPiggy, ? 17:11:37 I should say, implementing REFC without memory leaks is pretty hard. 17:11:52 I don't know that it's impossible. 17:11:54 yep, the only solution's to encode the entire vector into the pointer 17:11:59 which requires either bignums or Unefunge 17:12:06 (it is very easy to write a non-leaky REFC in Unefunge) 17:12:19 scarf: No, even then, you have to distinguish it from integers which happen to coincidentally have the same value. 17:12:20 (because you can make both R and D NOPs) 17:12:28 arstdhneio'\ 17:12:28 So you have to carry type information 17:12:36 On the stack and throughout the playfield. 17:12:44 cpressey: hmm, no, because nothing's forcing REFC values to be distinct from integers 17:12:55 You can't add type information 17:13:22 You can read in an integer with & and use it to access a REFC vector as well as do anything else 17:13:28 scarf: OK, in the bignum case. I guess I'm talking about the non-bignum case. 17:13:46 cpressey, also unefunge 17:13:54 Deewiant: well, REFC doesn't define what ,D would mean 17:13:56 in the non-bignum case, with unefunge, there are a finite number of possible integers, and an equal finite number of possible vectors 17:13:58 for fixnum befunge-or-above... 17:14:00 It could reflect. 17:14:01 so you can just map them one-on-one 17:14:25 Yes, I'm also not very interested in Unefunge. 17:14:37 the internal list would be a fixed internal list, {0=>0,1=>1,...} 17:14:48 except for bignum and unefunge, though, it's impossible to do without a memleak 17:15:05 cpressey: REFC just says that if you give it an integer which is the same as one that R earlier pushed it'll work 17:15:13 It doesn't matter where that integer came from 17:15:17 Deewiant &cpressey, how does REFC interact with storage offset? 17:15:21 I don't remember 17:15:29 Deewiant: REFC says nothing about integers 17:15:31 s/&/& / 17:15:35 I think that should work 17:15:40 "scalar values" 17:15:41 (that sed expression) 17:15:48 cpressey: So you're arguing that "a scalar value" could be a non-stack cell? :-P 17:15:57 cpressey: ooh, the idea is that you might be storing something other than integers in fungespace / on the stack? 17:16:00 Deewiant: I'm trying to make an argument for burning REFC 17:16:00 cpressey, that would be quite ferral 17:16:06 then what happens if you p them onto the playfield, then execute them? 17:16:11 cpressey, well, things implement it 17:16:26 cpressey: I'd rather make it actually useful ;-) 17:16:28 oooh that gave me a good idea 17:16:33 a *wonderful* idea 17:16:37 scarf, thanks a LOT 17:16:38 But I guess it's equivalent to burning it and doing something else 17:16:47 AnMaster: ? 17:17:02 AnMaster: REFC says nothing about storage offset so IMO it's not affected by it 17:17:17 Deewiant: someone will surely make an argument that fingerprints are immutable, even if they're crap-ambiguous 17:17:31 cpressey: Yep, AnMaster will 17:17:42 scarf, I have considered opaque values. For efunge things like {float,12.42} or {socket, Data_about_it} would be a lot nicer for fingerprints like FILE or SOCK or FPDP 17:17:49 of course that would be a pain in some other parts 17:17:54 but it would be kind of neat 17:17:58 Myself, I don't mind fixing broken-ass stuff in-place 17:18:00 the idea of ping them onto the playfield then executing them's a weird one 17:18:00 but now I figured out a way to solve it 17:18:09 scarf, the idea is that they are represented as functions 17:18:14 that can be acted upon 17:18:20 ooh, you could have lazy values 17:18:24 so if something tries to add them together and what not.. 17:18:28 scarf, that too 17:18:49 in fact, if you have some sort of lambda fingerprint, you could (very ferally) have a completely lazy funge, and still stay within the spec 17:19:15 scarf, my primary interest was about what happens if you pass a {socket,523} and a {float,2.3} to FPDP's "add two floating point numbers" or such 17:19:19 and where the error should be handled 17:19:26 FPDP should reflect 17:19:33 but I think this could mean it can implement the behaviour itself 17:19:33 well, the specific command in it should reflect 17:19:50 either that, or it should read a floating-point number from the socket and add that 17:19:57 operand overloading FTW 17:19:58 scarf, yes. But there would be a lot of "check what sort of value this is" or a lot of try catch 17:20:00 elsewhere 17:20:11 neither of which I liked very much 17:20:18 you could centralise it somewhat 17:20:24 scarf, yes, try catch 17:20:30 but that is somewhat blunt 17:20:47 also, efunge is already slow. 17:20:50 as in, defining fingerprint commands, you'd say what type of arguments they expected in the specfile-equivalent 17:21:08 scarf, currently efunge uses the same specfile format as cfunge for the fingerprints 17:21:25 (and similar shell scripts, but with different code generation output of course) 17:22:02 AnMaster: Until it's around the level of L::B you can't call it slow 17:22:22 Deewiant, well, slow enough that I'm somewhat annoyed at waiting on mycology 17:22:39 How long does it take? 17:22:41 Deewiant: hmm, if it doesn't implement hexadecifunge, it should be significantly faster than L::B to not be considered slow 17:22:48 Deewiant, overall it is a bit slower than ccbi it seems 17:22:56 varies a bit depending on things 17:23:01 *hexadecefunge 17:23:05 And that makes it annoyingly slow? You're awfully sensitive :-P 17:23:06 (like, which program) 17:23:42 scarf, what is hexadecefunge? 17:23:54 AnMaster: 16-dimensional funge, of course 17:24:10 Deewiant: What is L::B? 17:24:12 scarf, oh, not weird topology then? 17:24:19 cpressey, Language::Befunge 17:24:22 perl 17:24:24 cpressey: Language::Befunge, the Perl implementation 17:24:25 Oh, Perl. 17:24:34 it supports arbitrary-dimension funge 17:24:36 and is incredibly slow 17:24:45 Then shouldn't it be Language::Funge? 17:24:50 To be fair, it was incredibly slow even before it supported arbitrary-dimensional funges 17:24:56 cpressey: It didn't always support them 17:24:59 cpressey: probably, but it's probably too late to rename it now 17:25:15 Speaking of immutability 17:25:40 cpressey, it causes problems when breaking previous programs 17:26:05 cpressey, you should have made "under development" bold type 17:26:07 back 17:26:10 then maaaybe ;P 17:26:38 Maybe what? 17:26:52 cpressey, "allow changes" 17:27:11 I don't understand. 17:27:13 meh 17:27:17 never mind 17:27:30 we should have a fingerprint which is officially defined to be undefined, and whose semantics change every now and then 17:27:32 (possibly that was more in-joke than I thought) 17:27:39 scarf, heh 17:28:57 cpressey, oh btw... MODU 17:29:02 cpressey, "R: C-language integer remainder " 17:29:05 is that C99? 17:29:18 It predates C99 :-P 17:29:21 because C89 remainder is actually not well defined for negative values 17:29:29 * cpressey remembers why he walked away from Befunge the first time 17:29:33 Deewiant, befunge-98 does. But I don't know about that fingerprint 17:29:40 :( 17:29:43 Presumably it also does 17:29:47 Deewiant, well right 17:29:59 cpressey, fun to revisit for a bit? :) 17:30:09 cpressey: you've still managed to invent arguably the most useful of all the esolangs, though 17:30:22 yeah 17:30:35 Useful measured how? 17:30:44 -!- augur has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds). 17:30:49 Most used of the non-tarpit ones, at least 17:31:08 cpressey: useful in how quick it is to write a practical program with it 17:31:19 cpressey: Which one? 17:31:22 cpressey, what Deewiant said, and also "capable of interacting with other things with something more than just console io" 17:31:24 which one is the useful one 17:31:32 Befunge. 17:31:33 Probably befunge 17:31:35 as in, if you really wanted to program something, and had only esolangs to do it with, you'd probably use befunge 17:32:16 cpressey, I can't imagine fungot being possible to write in brainfuck or intercal. For a start it would have needed a proxy program to handle socket and file io multiplexing for it 17:32:17 AnMaster: love this song describes me...2 much. knob head. now, their all wanna be friends? 17:32:25 Might PSOX help? *evilgrin* 17:32:33 AnMaster: wrong there, CLC-INTERCAL can do both 17:32:33 * AnMaster slaps Sgeo_ 17:32:40 scarf, wasn 17:32:51 AnMaster: cut-off line 17:33:03 I know 17:33:13 scarf, wasn't* that just to other clc-intercal 17:33:16 (the socket IO) 17:33:24 stealing variables or something? 17:33:30 no, it has syscalls too 17:33:46 stealing variables is a favoured method of network communication, as it's higher-level 17:33:53 scarf, what? arbitrary syscalls? 17:33:57 but you can do low-level socket work too if you like, to be compatible with other programs 17:34:02 not arbitrary syscalls, a subset 17:34:07 phew 17:34:13 scarf, still that is unportable 17:34:19 AnMaster: they're relatively portable ones 17:34:24 scarf, I mean, syscalls on freebsd are different than on linux 17:34:27 I think they can all be implemented in portable Perl 17:34:46 a syscall from INTERCAL's point of view is "open a socket", not "open a socket using this specific function" 17:34:47 scarf, which ABI does it assume for the syscalls then? 17:34:55 scarf, aha 17:34:58 it doesn't, CLC-INTERCAL is interpreted 17:35:10 scarf, well, I thought perl could call native code 17:35:20 like syscall() in libc or such 17:35:21 it can, but it's not implemented like that 17:35:28 as in, CLC-INTERCAL isn't 17:35:43 although my attempts to port it to DOS failed because it assumed newline=10 17:35:54 Twitter uses Ruby [on Rails] apparently 17:36:09 Rails and Ruby are really quite different 17:36:23 you might as well try to compare Befunge to SCKE, or whatever 17:36:24 Sgeo_: and from what I've heard it's given them quite a bit of pain 17:37:02 scarf, well, the term "syscall" mislead me here 17:37:38 Hm. Howso? 17:37:56 Sgeo_: scaling 17:38:16 Scaling up to however many millions of users they have. 17:38:52 But, that's just a rumour. 17:39:14 It may be anti-Rails agitprop, for all I know 17:39:43 Anyway 17:40:17 scarf, I don't know what SCKE is 17:40:42 Sgeo_: a funge fingerprint, I just picked one off the top of my head 17:40:43 I think it's more productive, when faced with an ambiguously-defined fingerprint, to propose a new fingerprint with a different name (diff by one letter, say) which fixes the ambiguities. 17:40:57 like FING and FNGR? 17:41:09 FING and FNGR are two quite different approaches 17:41:13 yes 17:41:27 Implementations which provide ambiguous fingerprints will do so ambiguously. Good implementations that provide ambiguous fingerprints will allow themselves to be configured to handle the common de facto interpretations of the fingerprint. 17:41:39 That's all. 17:42:13 If only there were "common de facto interpretations" :-) 17:42:26 Maybe I should have said "most common". 17:42:34 Heh, fungot now has a Twitter account. 17:42:35 fizzie: are you sick son of a job drawing conclusions!!! i can't wait for the airshow and that just shows up when the pilot. 17:42:45 fizzie: What made you think that was a good idea 17:42:50 fizzie: does it spout nonsense whenever anyone mentions it? 17:43:07 scarf: Sounds like a typical Twitter user to me, actually 17:43:25 scarf: I haven't really rigged up the automation yet; that's one possibility. I was personally thinking more about a scheduled "thought for the day" sort of thing. 17:43:39 fungot: and what is your thought for today? 17:43:40 scarf: i'll take my moron with on r,please. 17:43:48 :-D 17:43:56 That's actually a pretty good thought 17:44:05 I don't know what it means 17:44:13 ^style 17:44:13 Available: agora alice c64 ct darwin discworld europarl ff7 fisher ic irc jargon lovecraft nethack pa speeches ss wp youtube* 17:44:19 ah 17:44:25 fizzie, make a style twitter? 17:44:26 then 17:44:32 See http://twitter.com/fungot for the first tweet; that was just a half-manual (automatic babble-generation and automatic posting, but nothing scheduled, just a fire-once thing with a fixed model) run. 17:44:33 fizzie: you must be stupid if there were 130 people on the news. if yall want to give 4000 to each chinese citizen to pay off it's debt's)its only gonna get worse and worse each week. 17:44:35 then use that to generate the new ones 17:44:35 It's invoking Muphry's, at least 17:44:43 AnMaster: I have a twitter style, it's just not in the bot yet. 17:44:48 fizzie, ah 17:44:56 AnMaster: I don't have very much data for it yet. 17:45:08 fizzie, I see 17:45:42 sqlite> select count(*) from tweets; 17:45:42 11590 17:45:49 fizzie: Does the "about nethack" show the style it came from or is that actually part of what it said 17:46:00 Deewiant: It shows the style, in this case. 17:46:59 -!- kar8nga has joined. 17:47:12 fizzie, why a sql db for it? 17:48:02 AnMaster: Why not? Everything can interface with sqlite, and I may want to use some of the tweet-related metadata for selecting things at some point. Admittedly currently a flat file would've worked just as well. 17:49:03 For the twitter style I've just told it to every 10 minutes go and fetch the top-10 "trending" topics from the Twitter API, select one randomly, and fetch 64 latest tweets about that topic. 17:49:06 fizzie, yeah, well that is what I thought: "it uses flat files" 17:49:19 also now you forced me to actually define that fingerprint SQLITE 17:49:24 (or SQL I guess) 17:49:43 (maybe, when I have time) 17:49:58 SQLT for SQLite I guess 17:50:10 Deewiant, why T? 17:50:15 shouldn't it be SQLL? 17:50:17 for Lite 17:50:21 Deewiant: SQLT reminded me of XSLT 17:50:30 ouch 17:50:36 AnMaster: Well, SQLite already has SQL in the name so I was thinking SQLiTe 17:50:53 SQLL would fit if it were SQL-Lite 17:51:02 Maybe SQL- ;-P 17:51:02 hm 17:51:09 Deewiant, why not SQLITE? 17:51:26 Depends on what it overlaps with 17:51:31 In the 32-bit range 17:51:42 Deewiant, ffs, 32-bit is a thing of the past ;P 17:51:51 No, it really isn't :-P 17:51:56 16-bit pretty much is 17:52:04 But 32-bit is very much present 17:52:14 Deewiant, 16 bit is not 17:52:18 The twitter style output generates pretty horribly moronic output, but, well, garbage in and so on. 17:52:22 http://pastebin.com/Aj33WwJn 17:52:23 Deewiant, look at lots of embedded microcontrollers 17:52:42 AnMaster: Lots of embedded stuff is actually 32-bit as well 17:53:02 fizzie: can you make it just pull from the twitter feeds of intelligent people? 17:53:06 fizzie, should filter urls from it I think 17:53:10 And I have a feeling that things are generally going in that direction 17:53:13 But maybe I'm wrong 17:53:14 ^style youtube 17:53:14 Selected style: youtube (Some YouTube comments) 17:53:27 Deewiant, well sure 17:53:31 scarf: There are intelligent people there? But sure, theoretically. 17:53:34 Deewiant, but 12 bits or such is still common 17:53:45 fungot: Is there a discussion here? 17:53:46 asiekierka: what about the ' tenor' roles... it could have been a while!! 17:53:47 Mayhap 17:53:56 Deewiant, iirc PIC12F had... hm I don't remember address and data bus sizes 17:54:05 Lots of DSP stuff is (or at least has been) 24 bits; that's a nice intermediate size. 17:54:06 (the comments were sourced from the top 50 or so videos of 11th May, 2009) 17:54:13 (492kb of data) 17:54:19 (all processed to be content-only) 17:54:21 -!- asiekierka has changed nick to asie[afk]. 17:55:39 ugh, the top videos are bound to have stupid comments 17:55:45 Using real twitter data has the "problem" that it will include lots of @names in it, and those mentioned people might get a bit confused. 17:56:02 Since (as far as I know) they see it when people put their @name in there. 17:56:16 fizzie, filter @names and http:// then? 17:56:17 Confusion is fun! 17:56:32 Yes, I'm not yet sure if it's a problem. 17:56:57 Twitter people might count the end product spam, anyway. 17:57:40 fizzie, well, filtering it doesn't sound too bad 17:58:00 hi fizzie 17:58:12 i want to add new youtube comments to fungot 17:58:13 asie[afk]: nobody was in middle to the bloke the plane ( alpha-floor protection etc) and loads more cabin crew. 17:58:17 the goal is 5MB 17:59:19 I'd really suggest some HTML scraping as opposed to manual collecting, but whatever floats your e-boat, I guess. 17:59:58 AnMaster: But then it doesn't look authentic twittery if it's not full of tinyurl links and @pings and #tags. (Though I guess there's no need to filter #tags; that's just another way people might end up actually seeing those tweets and being confused by them.) 18:00:20 wth is going on 18:00:34 * AnMaster prods disk, htop and sync 18:00:54 basically lots of disk io (seek noise), sync just hangs.

If you want specific, I'm going to be specific. 18:27:00 If you don't want specific, -98 is fine 18:27:39 cpressey, it would need to be specific in the spec yes 18:27:48 but I don't think IRC is the spec 18:28:14 No, but questions about the spec can't be answered unless they're specific, even if those questions are asked on IRC 18:28:29 cpressey, I'm typing this on an uncomfortable keyboard 18:28:35 you have to allow for that 18:29:22 cpressey, cells yeild 32 by default? 18:29:36 cpressey, how does that interact with popping zero on empty stack? 18:29:46 or is cell just funge-space here? 18:30:05 anmaster_l: Stacks are not defined in terms of cells, they are defined in terms of intvals. 18:30:36 cpressey, so they can't contain opaque objects 18:30:37 ? 18:30:40 Sorry, s/intvals/objects/. 18:30:42 ah 18:30:53 And yes, cells are effectively only in the playfield 18:31:32 fun, I hope no one gets confused reading cfunge source then!

Sigh. 19:19:26 cpressey: 19:19:30 "In Befunge-111, any stack can only contain one kind of object." 19:19:34 cpressey: Allow objects on the stack. 19:19:41 that is the problematic phrase 19:19:42 i.e. objects and intvals 19:19:45 It will be fun and hilarious 19:19:51 oh lol 19:19:55 i fidn' teven see this convo 19:19:59 *didn't even 19:20:30 i would really like my computer :| 19:23:15 hm? 19:23:57 anmaster_l: That kind of object is "object", which is either an intval or an opaque. I realize this wording is confusing. I'll fix it. 19:24:22 cpressey, right 19:24:39 cpressey, it sounds like it is one kind of object per stack 19:24:43 (and that is surely wrong) 19:24:50 _object_ is horrible word to have a definition of 19:25:04 cpressey, what about value? 19:25:24 Yeah, value is OK. Don't ask me to define it though. 19:25:42 That's the sort of thing that makes philosophy careers. 19:26:11 cpressey, or entenity (sp? argh) 19:26:21 "object: region of data storage in the execution environment, the contents of which can represent values" (C99 is a bit pragmatic) 19:26:55 cpressey, actually, value would be confusing 19:27:06 object or entenity (again: spelling?) 19:27:09 are better 19:27:17 entity 19:27:22 Eternity. 19:27:23 alise, thanks 19:27:23 "element"? 19:27:30 alise: So, you're at a hotel or something and will be at place later. "Fun". 19:27:49 Entity: (forall x. x is an entity) & ~(exists x. ~(x is an entity)) 19:27:53 cpressey, an element of an array on the stack? 19:27:54 Philosophy is like logic but with more redundancy. 19:27:55 or SETS 19:28:12 "thing" 19:28:13 cpressey, calling it element in general would make that SETS fingerprint confusing perhaps 19:28:15 sets don't exist 19:28:17 cpressey, hehe 19:28:21 alise: Logic is often considered part of philosophy. 19:28:33 By idiots. 19:28:39 MissPiggy, I'm talking about http://www.rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#SETS 19:28:44 philosophy without logic is like sex without marrige 19:29:01 MissPiggy: Less restraining? 19:29:02 :P 19:29:09 (More diseases) 19:29:13 I consider it more a tool needed to do philosophy sanely. 19:29:17 (not that this stops people from doing it insanely) 19:29:53 -!- charlls has joined. 19:30:25 Maybe I'll just define "object stack", "stack stack", and "fingerprint semantic stack" as seperate things instead of trying to generalize (which is what is leading to me needing the word "thing") 19:30:40 Object or stack or fingerprint semantic... 19:30:46 cpressey, aha 19:30:51 cpressey: How about having object/stack/fingerprint semantics "types"? 19:30:59 And then say "A stack of a certain type ... contains elements of that type ..." 19:31:09 Either that, or objects can be stacks and they can be semantics and that is Wrong, or at least requires a lot more thought 19:31:22 So you say a stack of objects, a stack of stacks of a certain type, and a stack of fingerprint semantics. 19:31:39 cpressey, oh fun, lets have a fingerprint that can place stacks as opaque values on your stack 19:31:42 Or the type intval|opaque could have a name besides "object" 19:31:57 like, popping TOSS off, and pushing it as a opaque value on the new TOSS 19:32:04 ;) 19:32:22 alise: I think I like that approach 19:32:35 alise, that might work 19:32:43 anmaster_l: Nothing stopping you, really, since opaque is opaque is opaque 19:33:13 cpressey, true, anyway I come up with semi-opaque lazy lambdas now 19:33:19 that will execute when inspected 19:33:20 by anything 19:33:32 and thus try to present themselves with a reasonable value 19:33:41 cpressey, of course this is extremely feral 19:33:54 also it requires a lot more thought 19:34:11 cpressey: Allow the core operations to be performed on opaque objects, with semantics defined by the opaque object. 19:34:22 if you made all values functions, then this could work transparently 19:34:26 So we can have y push a bunch of lazy values that only evaluate when you use them. 19:34:38 either have values that are just "dumb" functions, returning their own value 19:34:42 or have advanced ones 19:34:48 OR 19:34:51 that could vary depending on what the operation is 19:34:56 Have values that do completely random things wwhen you operate on them 19:34:57 *when 19:35:01 +? Yes, that outputs the stack stack. 19:35:03 alise, and lazy values too of course 19:35:08 anmaster_l: Those can just be done as opaques. 19:35:28 alise, well, there is a bit of confusion about how many elements a lazy value could expand to 19:35:30 and the stack size 19:35:44 (you can get stack size with y remember?) 19:35:50 -!- charlls has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 19:36:16 Have values that do completely random things wwhen you operate on them <-- yes :D 19:36:29 however, I think this is best left out of 111 19:36:40 it needs more thought 19:36:44 Fine, I'll just define my own... Abstract Funge! 19:36:54 N-dimensional? Who says it needs to be in only one kind of space? 19:37:00 Numbers? Why restrict yourself thusly?! 19:37:07 alise, call it beabstract? 19:37:08 It will be a monoidal semiring. 19:38:15 alise, anyway, one of the goals with befunge-111 is that it shouldn't break the majority of previous programs (some depending on corner cases are ok) 19:38:27 and it should clear up confusion 19:38:58 plus move some stuff, like tio= into fingerprints (and keep the existing chars implementation defined) 19:39:02 (for those) 19:39:06 cpressey: Can I make a humble suggestion? (note: it's crazy) 19:39:39 (alise, read logs for the last few weeks or so if you want more details, there was quite a lot of discussion) 19:39:52 Let an IP be in multiple places at once 19:40:00 That is, multiple velocities going different ways 19:40:06 Quantumly! 19:40:09 har 19:40:15 fine for a fingerprint I feel 19:40:15 DO IT 19:40:18 anmaster_l: NO 19:40:25 stop trying to keep funge boring :( 19:40:41 s/boring/practical/ 19:40:42 alise: For orthogonality, all vectors would need to be quantum superpositions of multiple vectors. 19:41:00 And the stack, too. 19:41:12 cpressey, and funge space? 19:41:18 cpressey: Whyever not? :D 19:41:24 No, funge space can be reduced to a single cell. 19:41:34 Ooh.

I'm going to have to define a single ; in a path as a special case. 20:04:44 Why 20:04:46 cpressey, how is that? 20:04:48 or, well, I hate sgml spaces more 20:04:49 There is never only a single ; in a path 20:04:49 cpressey, it wraps around 20:04:51 alise: Well, we want wrapping to complete in finite time 20:05:03 cpressey: Not SGML spaces + A run of spaces takes 0 ticks.

The problem is that it needs to be worded in the form of an unambiguous definition. 20:08:27 cpressey, you could define a "wrapping ray" 20:08:36 cpressey, and then use that in there 20:08:44 If you have multiple velocities 20:08:47 if you need to keep ray and wrapping ray separate 20:08:49 The ray can actually CROSS OVER ITSELF 20:08:50 <3 20:09:00 Two sub-IPs collide and form one IP 20:09:03 With the average velocity of both 20:09:10 This is brilliant, do not deny it 20:09:15 why did this make me think of ghostbusters... 20:09:28 Don't cross the IPs! 20:09:33 oh right 20:09:37 ..., Ray! 20:10:22 cpressey, so suggestion: non-wrapping ray can sometimes be useful (some fingerprints that write a 0"gnirts" into funge space, with a given delta for example) 20:10:34 cpressey, so just define wrapping and non-wrapping rays 20:10:39 Or I'll just describe this procedurally 20:10:57 cpressey, defined wrapping yet btw? 20:11:38 with that, a wrapping ray would be trivial 20:11:50 so then defer defining ; until you defined wrapping 20:13:08 cpressey: A suggestion: Wrapping occurs when you hit an untraversed cell: all the cells specified that aren't just spaces around like befunge-98 wrapping rule at the start are traversed, anything p'd is traversed, 20:13:13 anything leading to a traversed cell is traversed, 20:13:24 and everything any IP has ever landed upon is traversed 20:13:40 alise, that doesn't allow for bounds to shrink 20:13:40 "Leading" meaning "under the current velocity" 20:13:49 anmaster_l: Yes it does, it's just an optimisation 20:13:52 which is important wrt p with space 20:13:57 Since runs of spaces take 0 time, 20:14:00 alise, it is a correctness issue for y 20:14:01 Just set them to spaces 20:14:07 anmaster_l: So fix y 20:14:13 alise, fix it how? 20:14:32 Make it not cause an incorrectness issue 20:14:56 alise, well since it *pushes bounds* on stack I don't see how you mean it can not depend on that 20:15:43 Define it to be the maximum bounds ever 20:15:55 What breaks y here? 20:15:56 alise, there are good reasons not to 20:15:57 i.e. the size of the region of traversed cells at its maximum at any point in the past or present 20:16:08 Deewiant: Nothing 20:16:11 Since bounds never shrink in my system 20:16:12 So, yeah 20:16:13 alise, and a lot of effort went into making sure it shrunk to be current minimum bounds 20:16:18 ... 20:16:31 Any such shrinkage is just an optimisation 20:16:35 So don't expose that optimisation to y, duh 20:16:45 alise, no it isn't. it is a correctness issue according to mycology 20:16:49 and I agree 20:16:51 In Befunge-98 20:16:57 We're specifying a new language here, hellooooooooo 20:17:08 alise, it is a revision of it. 20:17:16 Where is the non-shrinkage happening 20:17:20 also it is nicer to have bounds be the minimum bounding box at any time 20:17:34 Deewiant, read what he suggested above 20:17:34 You just said "wrapping occurs at point x" 20:17:39 I did 20:17:49 Let me specify it more precisely. 20:17:57 well I guess you could have two sets of bounds 20:18:08 alise: Much as I want to, I don't think too much can be made backwards-incompatible. 20:18:21 This wouldn't be incompatible at all apart from some minor detail of y :-) 20:18:37 (speaking in general, not sure what the current discussion centers around) 20:18:38 It would still not be incompatible IMO 20:18:39 cpressey, yep, a backwards incompat one can be made as a different language, or as a feral fingerprint 20:18:52 (depending on the nature of the backwards incompat) 20:18:53 You just defined the semantics of wrapping 20:18:59 Which is invisible to everything 20:19:06 What cells are "traversed" matters not since they're spaces 20:19:13 Deewiant, true. y bounds might be separate 20:19:29 An impl is allowed to allocate 4G*4G and traverse every single space if it wants to 20:19:32 The semantics are the same 20:19:42 yes 20:19:50 Whenever the IP would advance to an /untraversed/ cell, it instead {wrapping stuff goes here}. An untraversed cell is a cell that is not traversed. A traversed cell is a cell that satisfies one or more of the following properties: * It was in the original program source and (insert stuff here to handle extraneous spaces, using Befunge-98 rules). * It has been advanced to by an IP at some point in the program without wrapping occur 20:19:50 OR 20:19:57 Deewiant, how much is 4G*4G btw? 20:20:14 * If the IP continued on its current velocity, it would eventually reach a traversed cell without wrapping. 20:20:17 The end. 20:20:29 anmaster_l: 17-19 exabytes or so? 20:20:35 ah 20:20:45 Or "square gigabytes" if you prefer :-P 20:20:46 cpressey: ^ 20:20:55 alise, you forgot about one thing 20:20:56 I think this definition is general enough to withstand all the ferality from any fingerprint you wish. 20:21:03 alise, writing a value to said cell 20:21:12 anmaster_l: "It has been modified over the course of the program" 20:21:18 alise: Currently, 'p'ing spaces into untraversed locations doesn't change wrapping... I'm not sure if your defn does or not. It might not, but it's not obvious to me yet. 20:21:24 alise, you missed out on that 20:21:28 alise, your message was cut off 20:21:29 ... 20:21:30 anmaster_l: k 20:21:40 "* It has been advanced to by an IP at some point in the program without wrapping occur" 20:21:40 cpressey: If you p something really far away, then set off on a course towards it, you won't wrap until you hit it. 20:21:43 alise, ^ 20:21:48 alise, it ended there 20:21:50 occuring. * It has been modified over the course of the program. 20:21:54 And then the OR, and the line after. 20:22:03 alise, fix your client btw :P 20:22:33 I'm using webchat.freenode.net in IE on someone else's machine because there's nowhere to put my iMac because I'm at somebody else's house because of reasons out of my control. 20:22:37 So shut up. 20:22:44 mhm 20:22:48 Erm, since Funge-98 programs can't rely on more than 4G*4G playfield, and still only have (effectively) a single stack, does this mean Befunge-98 is not TC? 20:22:59 Eh? 20:23:11 cpressey, befunge-98 allows larger ones 20:23:13 Stack stack, dude 20:23:20 and stack-stack yes 20:23:21 anmaster_l: Allows, but does not guarantee. 20:23:22 Deewiant, err no 20:23:31 Deewiant, y can query size for each stack on stack stack 20:23:40 Deewiant: stack stack = single stack with markers, I think. 20:23:55 (Didn't we have this conversation?) 20:23:57 cpressey: You can make a tape out of the stack stack using the stack stack ops. 20:24:03 cpressey, that is an implementation detail 20:24:10 at least I have not implemented it like that 20:24:10 fizzie: That would save it. 20:24:14 anmaster_l: But it isn't specced that it has to be a result that meaningfully fits in a cell :-P 20:24:23 Deewiant, eh? 20:24:29 cpressey: I don't think my definition of traversable has any flaws. 20:24:41 It's basically just a refinement and formalisation of the Befunge-98 wrapping rules. 20:24:41 anmaster_l: E.g. CCBI will happily push INT_MIN if you push 2 gigacells 20:24:44 Deewiant, 0y not fit on stack? 20:24:53 Push INT_MIN for the size, I mean 20:24:56 (In the 98 spec they're basically "It wraps like regular 2d space except not like that if you're in other dimensions. Happy/") 20:24:58 *Happy? 20:26:06 I think alise's suggestion might work. Of course y would need separate (always minimal) bounds 20:26:21 cpressey: C doesn't guarantee infinite memory either, does that mean it's not TC? 20:26:29 (except for ATHR, but that is feral so it is okay for it to say that bounds updates might take a while to propagate) 20:26:44 Deewiant: I don't consider C to be TC, no. 20:26:49 Deewiant, iirc that has been discussed here 20:26:57 cpressey: What /do/ you consider TC? :-) 20:27:24 cpressey, iirc C is TC with file io 20:27:24 Oh, you may also want to add: 20:27:28 Deewiant: Only languages that have infinite storage, yet have been implemented on finite computers. 20:27:40 Deewiant: It's more like "does it provide an operation that could always access more memory *if* that memory was available"? Addressing memory with fixed-size pointers doesn't count. (but car and cdr do.) 20:27:47 that a cell is also traversable if a fingerprint deems it to be so 20:27:55 (but feral fingerprints override the spec anyway, so possibly redundant?) 20:27:58 cpressey, befunge-98 is TC then. bignum is allowed I argue 20:28:08 anmaster_l: Only if you use dud values for bits 20:28:11 WHich is breaking the spec 20:28:12 *Which 20:28:20 alise, it doesn't forbid it either 20:28:29 You need to push the number of bits in a cell 20:28:29 alise, I mean -1 for number of bytes per cell 20:28:33 You don't, you push -1 20:28:36 You violate the spec 20:28:36 Q.E.D. 20:28:42 alise, yes, but the spec doesn't forbid that either 20:28:56 C doesn't merely *not guarantee* infinite memory, it requires finite memory. 20:29:04 pikhq, indeed 20:29:09 It can be arbitrarily large, but most have a bound. 20:29:14 Erm. Must. 20:30:27 anmaster_l: You have to push the bit width 20:30:28 You do not 20:30:30 That is violating the spec 20:30:35 Simple as 20:30:43 alise, no 20:30:48 So if I define a language with two instructions, and the meanings of both instructions are implementation-defined, then that language is TC, because it is allowed for an implementation to treat the instructions as encoding a UTM. 20:31:01 cpressey: I see. By that definition, whether Funge-98 is TC depends on what part of the spec you read ;-) 20:31:06 alise, please read the spec 20:31:18 alise, "1 cell containing the number of bytes per cell (global env)." 20:31:20 not bits 20:31:25 Same thing 20:31:29 A bignum does not have -1 bytes per cell 20:31:31 alise, anyway, one could define bytes differently 20:31:35 No, you can't 20:31:43 Not even cpressey would consider that reasonable 20:31:48 alise, I define my bytes to be -(one bignum) 20:31:58 Just admit you're violating the spec 20:32:11 alise, it's a corner case 20:32:23 cpressey: Oh, please step in and resolve this ridiculousness. 20:32:25 I agree on that 20:32:32 pikhq: I think we did come to the conclusion that C's file IO parts are vaguely enough defined that you can still have a conforming C implementation which has an infinite tape affixed to a file (so that you move around the tape by writing special operations into the file), and thusly make it TC, but you might not want to count that. 20:32:46 I can't even believe anmaster_l is defending "I have -1 bytes per cell because I say the size of a byte is minus the size of one bignum." 20:33:10 alise, that was tongue in cheek -_- 20:33:17 alise, whooosh 20:33:29 All discussion about Befunge is tongue-in-cheek 20:33:40 But you were being just as ridiculous about refusing to admit you violate the spec before 20:33:56 And, also, it wasn't funny insofar as it was the obvious thing to say, were your intention to make the most boring non-excuse there is. 20:33:58 alise: Yes; personally I'd argue based on the incredible vagueness of "typically 4, could also be 2, 8, really really large, infinity, etc." (I mean, "etc."?), but that's not *so* convincing either. 20:34:07 alise, I don't think I violate the spec. But yes 0 might be better than -1 20:34:28 fizzie: Yes, but aside from file IO, C is required to be an FSM. 20:34:32 I'm just going to defer the only person who has any actual idea about the spec. 20:34:38 :) 20:34:47 *defer to 20:34:50 alise, "aka cell size. Typically 4, could also be 2, 8, really really large, infinity, etc. " <-- yes I represent infinity as -1 here 20:34:52 http://pastie.org/852357 20:34:52 cpressey: Pushing -1 for the bytes-per-cell value in y is verboten unless you actually have -1 bytes per cell. Yes? And a bignum does not take up -1 bytes per cell. 20:35:27 alise: The spec says: "2. 1 cell containing the number of bytes per cell (global env). aka cell size. Typically 4, could also be 2, 8, really really large, infinity, etc." 20:35:33 WITHOUT SAYING HOW TO REPRESENT INFINITY 20:35:38 Well, yes. 20:35:42 But -1 isn't infinity, it's -1. 20:35:47 That's pretty obvious. 20:36:02 (So "infinity" is just bunk there.) 20:36:06 anmaster_l: Do you happen to know Erlang's actual bignum format, by the way? I only know how GMP does it, and that particular library has a (surprisingly small) MAX_BIGNUM. 20:36:16 anmaster_l: You should push a function that, when accessed, gives the largest number thus far used by the program + 1 20:36:19 Well, if I'm a Befunge program, with no knowledge of what could be interpreting me. 20:36:21 GMP has MAX_BIGNUM? 20:36:23 Wowzers. 20:36:25 And I run y. 20:36:30 And I look at the second cell. 20:36:35 And I see "-1" 20:36:43 What am I supposed to think? 20:36:49 fizzie, no idea actually 20:36:49 alise: Yes; on a 32-bit system, the MAX_BIGNUM value itself takes 8 gigabytes of storage, though. It's a bit large, but definitely not infinite. 20:36:57 "If I push values to the stack, I'll use less memory!" 20:36:58 Deewiant, nice idea 20:37:08 "Then The User will love me more!" 20:37:22 alise: :-D 20:38:06 On a 64-bit system, the GMP MAX_BIGNUM actually takes only 16 gigabytes of storage, which is not so huge (if you compare to the addressable space); they use a signed 32-bit value as the counter of (in this case 64-bit) "limbs" of data bits. 20:38:18 Ah 20:38:24 I would use a pointer to the last one 20:38:34 After all, if you can't address the last bignum you can't access it 20:38:35 So it's foolproof 20:38:57 alise, what says it must be in one sequence= 20:39:00 s/=/?/ 20:39:12 couldn't it be allocated in large chunks 20:39:19 What? 20:39:25 Hmm. Signed 32-bit value for a length? 20:39:37 That's retarded. Just use size_t. 20:39:43 alise, if you are near filling the address space, getting area after the end of the number might be hard 20:39:44 pikhq: The sign bit holds the sign of the actual value. 20:39:56 fizzie, ssize_t then? 20:39:58 fizzie: x_x 20:39:59 cpressey: Just a nit: I don't like "at the edge of the world", it sounds like there's an actual edge on which you're standing, at the other side is the world and the other side nothing, but you've defined it as including that "nothing" as well 20:40:05 anmaster_l: not after 20:40:06 fizzie: That's... Silly. 20:40:07 you point to the last one 20:40:18 pikhq: And they argue that 32 bits is "large enough" and saves four bytes of space from each GMP integer. Hey, I didn't make it. 20:40:26 Deewiant: would "over the edge" be better? 20:40:26 Deewiant: Which is why cpressey should use traversable cells >:( 20:40:37 TRAVERSAAAAAAAAAAABLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLlle 20:40:50 cpressey: I'd prefer that, yes; in my brain the "edge" is the edgemost non-marker cell 20:40:54 fizzie: 4 bytes... Per *number*. 20:41:14 What was that about "premature optimisation"? 20:41:28 Deewiant: But the procedure itself appears... uncontroversial? 20:41:39 cpressey, you forgot to reflect the backtrack of the IP I think? 20:41:48 cpressey, so now it points in the wrong direction doesn't it 20:41:57 Right 20:41:59 maybe I misread 20:42:04 it's somewhat confusing that 20:42:36 anmaster_l: Nothing changes the delta, in this definition 20:42:41 cpressey, ah 20:42:42 IMO, GMP on a 64-bit system should be theoretically capable of handling a 2^64 byte number. 20:42:56 Erm. 2^64-1 byte. 20:43:09 Just that the backtrack's path is defined by the reflection of the delta 20:43:41 Also right. 20:43:46 pikhq: No overhead? 20:43:47 In that case, I think it's correct. 20:43:51 fizzie, all I can find is http://www.erlang.org/doc/efficiency_guide/advanced.html 20:43:59 fizzie, which includes the size of a fixnum in words 20:44:11 but bignum seems unlimited according to that 20:44:15 pikhq: I could buy some sort of "compatibility with the 32-bit GMP values" implementation, but they change the actual limb size from 32 to 64 bits... 20:44:21 cpressey: >_> ... ... TRAVERSED CELLS 20:44:22 I'm not about to dig through beam's sources 20:44:36 alise: I'm not seeing how they add anything, yet. 20:44:44 cpressey: Is the IP the position? If not, I might say "IP's position" in at least a few places there 20:44:49 cpressey: Well, they are, I think, more precise. 20:44:57 alise, how so? 20:44:58 So fingerprints can do more Funky Stuff without breaking it 20:45:11 anmaster_l: Yes, well, "It is implementation-dependent how much memory the Erlang data types and other items consume"; you could argue that the Erlang-language is capable of having "real" bignums therefore. 20:45:19 alise, remember cpressey decided to not define unefunge/trefunge in 111 any more 20:45:25 Well, for one thing 20:45:28 Consider 20:45:28 On the other hand, certainly GMP's user-visible API doesn't restrict the value sizes, it's just their implementation of it. 20:45:31 x 20:45:32 20:45:34 y 20:45:36 erm 20:45:37 x 20:45:38 20:45:38 Why no unefunge/trefunge? :-/ 20:45:40 y 20:45:48 The spaces between x and y are traversable 20:45:55 Because they hit either x or y (when going diagonally) 20:45:56 alise, no one said they aren't? 20:45:57 eventually 20:45:59 But x, downwards, isn't 20:46:03 (Unefunge/Trefunge-111 can be derived from Befunge-111 later) 20:46:10 Because it does not lead to any traversable cell without wrapping 20:46:10 etc 20:46:12 So it's more precise 20:46:16 Deewiant: IP is position, yes. 20:46:20 internal bounds aren't an integer coordinate 20:46:21 alise, also they might not. Consider the delta from the space in the middle 20:46:26 so it never hits x or y 20:46:30 alise, that can happen 20:46:33 anmaster_l: That's why traversability is defined based on the velocity 20:46:36 Read the damn definition 20:46:54 cpressey, actually, what if there are no cells we can hit 20:46:55 Deewiant: I'm using "EC" for "Execution Context" for "Collection of IP, delta, stack, etc" instead of overloading "IP" to mean all that 20:47:04 cpressey, like, some other thread overwrote all with spaces 20:47:07 err 20:47:08 some other IP 20:47:39 cpressey: Works for me, although I'd probably prefer IP for the backwards-compatibility (even though -93 used PC, IIRC...) 20:47:45 cpressey, or kp was used to overwrite both k and p and anything else in the same "ray" 20:47:48 anmaster_l: Then advancing never terminates 20:47:56 cpressey, I guess that is okay 20:48:06 Deewiant: I'll mention the change PC -> IP -> EC in the notes. 20:48:42 anmaster_l: It's not great, but it's tolerable 20:48:57 cpressey, btw, I consider IP something that has a position, a delta, a string-mode-flag, a stack-stack plus possibly a few other things 20:49:04 what do you consider an IP nowdays then 20:49:16 What he said: the position 20:49:27 ah 20:49:35 It's an "instruction pointer", after all; it sort-of makes sense to be just the position. 20:49:50 That's arguable either way 20:50:17 Traditionally an instruction pointer always behaves the same way and thus only "needs" to be the position 20:50:39 Whereas in Funge, much of what you do involves modifying the way the instruction pointer behaves 20:51:20 cpressey, what happens to an ec with delta 0? 20:51:31 Deewiant: Yes, well... on the other hand, even "traditionally" there's the stack which is very much not part of the intstruction pointer; there's some other sort of "context" that groups the IP position and the stack. 20:51:41 anmaster_l: Again, advancing doesn't terminate. 20:51:49 Deewiant, shouldn't it just do nothing 20:51:53 and simply rest on it 20:52:04 fizzie: Sure, there's other stuff, but the stack there isn't so associated with the IP 20:52:06 oh wait, it should execute the instruction on the current spot 20:52:10 but if that is space then what 20:52:11 cpressey, ^ 20:52:15 Um, delta 0 will execute the instruction at the IP over and over and over 20:52:31 cpressey, what if that instruction is a space though 20:52:32 Deewiant: Right, it's associated with the context, which is what should correspond to the 98 "IP" anyway. :p 20:52:34 fizzie: It isn't in Funge either, but things like the delta are. 20:52:41 cpressey, and what about a j? :D 20:52:59 anmaster_l: If it's a space advancing doesn't terminate. 20:53:04 anmaster_l: You should be able to figure it out from the spec so far 20:53:13 Not j, the other stuff 20:53:17 cpressey, well okay 20:53:26 oh needed to ctrl-refresh it 20:53:28 strange 20:53:41 Deewiant: I guess you could argue for some sort of intermediate thing where IP is the (position, velocity) pair, and the rest are EC. If you wanted to, for some inexplicable reason. 20:54:03 fizzie: I'd argue that the string mode is also part of the IP. 20:54:05 On that note, is there a good term for a (position, velocity) pair? 20:54:11 cpressey: Ray 20:54:24 Deewiant: Hm, ok. 20:54:30 Sort of 20:54:36 fizzie: And possibly I can argue enough things that it'll just be a matter of convenience to group the rest into the IP as well ;-) 20:54:44 cpressey: Call it a particle, that would be silly-funny. 20:54:45 cpressey: Agent 20:54:51 An agent is somewhere, and moves places. 20:54:58 "A ray is part of a line which is finite in one direction, but infinite in the other. It can be defined by two points, the initial point, A, and one other, B. The ray is all the points in the line segment between A and B together with all points, C, on the line through A and B such that the points appear on the line in the order A, B, C." 20:55:02 It's directed-acting to modify some state based on some other state. 20:55:03 -- Wikipedia 20:55:04 Thus, an agent. 20:55:20 We define it with A and B-A but that's equivalent. 20:55:46 A (classical) particle has position and velocity too, though. And then you can easily make the position a probability density function and so on in the quantum extensions. :p 20:55:47 cpressey: Also: TRAVERSABILITY NOW :| 20:55:52 (I am being a bit unserious.) 20:55:57 alise: What's the point? 20:56:00 Agent particle 20:56:09 Deewiant: More formal, more precise, easier to implement 20:56:16 More precise how? 20:56:19 How is it... yeah 20:56:26 x 20:56:27 20:56:28 y 20:56:42 the bounds here aren't rectangular 20:56:47 only the cell between x and y is traversable 20:57:01 Deewiant: For a typical sort of ray, though, ((0, 0), (1, 1)) and ((0, 0), (2, 2)) would be the same ray; but no-one would claim those to be equivalent for a particle. 20:57:05 alise: How is this "more precise" 20:57:18 Because it is, so there 20:57:27 You really have to define what you mean by "precise" :-P 20:57:39 I think it's probably equivalent, but it adds the burden of distinguishing some cells from others 20:57:50 Aw dang; I waited ~three hours for fungot's Twitter-poster to actually say anything, and then it bailed out due to a typo. 20:57:50 fizzie: o jeh, o naw, o naw, o naw, o naw. morfoatari, was charged with manslaughter. 20:58:08 ^style 20:58:08 Available: agora alice c64 ct darwin discworld europarl ff7 fisher ic irc jargon lovecraft nethack pa speeches ss wp youtube* 20:58:16 ... 20:58:57 These are the beginnings of a new language. 20:59:08 Morfoatari means "was charged with manslaughter". 20:59:18 cpressey, an IP may also contain IP specific data. 20:59:24 err 20:59:26 fail 20:59:31 fingerprint specific data 20:59:32 I meant 20:59:41 I postulate that either manslaughter = atari, orfo = charged with, and m = past tense, 20:59:42 or, 20:59:52 foat = manslaughter, ari = charged with, mor = past tense 20:59:58 anmaster_l: Yes, the fingerprint-semantics-stack-set -- that's mentioned in the defns 21:00:05 cpressey, also: unloading a fingerprint isn't well defined. It might be partly unloaded 21:00:29 cpressey, well I meant, per-fingerprint data 21:00:35 cpressey, as in special flags for MODE 21:00:36 or whatever 21:00:41 Unloading fingerprints will be precisely defined to have the same broken behaviour as -98, probably 21:00:55 anmaster_l: That's the fingerprint's business, not the EC's. 21:01:02 alise: And what of "o jeh", and "o naw"? 21:01:03 cpressey, I don't think 98 behaviour is actually broken as such 21:01:14 Fine, "stupid behaviour" 21:01:26 pikhq: jeh/naw are probably yes/no. 21:01:28 o = it's, I bet. 21:01:28 I don't think it's stupid either :-P 21:01:29 cpressey, I liked it :) 21:01:34 So It's yes = it's good, it's naw = it's bad 21:01:40 So it's good, he was charged! But oh the downsides. Bad bad bad. 21:01:55 I'm not sure what else to call something where you can unload it and it's still there 21:02:13 Consider a newspaper article: "O jeh! O naw, o naw, o naw, o naw. Morfoatari [the criminal but the implications ...]." 21:02:17 You're not unloading "it" ;-) 21:02:18 cpressey, see it as set operations 21:02:26 Multiset 21:02:52 No, you're unloading all the instructions that are defined in it, no matter what they actually do right now. 21:02:54 cpressey, let A and B be sets of the letters each fingerprint implements 21:03:10 cpressey, then you have operations like A\B 21:03:11 If that's what you want, it makes more sense to just... list those instructions 21:03:42 If AAAA and BBBB define the same sets of letters, unloading either has the same semantics 21:04:14 hm 21:04:29 To add one data point, I have a mild dislike of that; can't quite quantify the amount, but not large. 21:04:30 alise: It's the new *new* Newspeak. 21:04:57 cpressey, I quite like the current behaviour, and I see nothing wrong with it 21:05:14 cpressey, I might make a fingerprint that allows sending fingerprint instructions between ips or such 21:05:27 hey in efunge I could create fingerprints on the fly 21:05:32 I just realised this 21:05:45 since they are basically a stack of lambdas 21:05:49 (funs) 21:06:10 sure, they can resolve to a function in a module (what currently happens) 21:06:29 but nothing prevents a complete lambda being pushed there 21:07:17 cpressey, what about CR for file loading? 21:07:34 anmaster_l: Not supported, use a text converter. 21:07:54 CR for file loading? 21:08:03 You mean mac-style line breaks? 21:08:17 I assumed that what what anmaster_l meant 21:08:25 Why not supported? 21:08:26 cpressey, aww, I went to great lengths ensuring any combination of LF CRLF and CR mixed for different lines in a single file worked 21:08:37 cpressey, so CRLF is also unsupported I guess? 21:08:49 Deewiant: "file" is a more abstract concept 21:09:01 last I checked mycology was encoded in CRLF 21:09:15 That exposed a bug in rcfunge IIRC 21:09:19 Which reflected on CR 21:09:31 cpressey, so basically it would use native line ending always? 21:09:33 Or can't remember which, one of the earlier interps. 21:09:37 There is nothing stopping an implementation from providing loading of files in other formats as an option 21:09:43 anmaster_l: No, always 10. 21:09:45 cpressey, would actually handling non-native formats be allowed? 21:09:49 hm 21:09:59 cpressey: That's massively inconvenient for windows users 21:10:06 cpressey, but that would need to be an explicit option? 21:10:30 (which I don't think is a good idea requiring) 21:10:50 -!- augur has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds). 21:11:00 Deewiant: It's just payback for "you people" spewing all those CRs everywhere. 21:11:19 cpressey, the SGML spaces + ticks had a somewhat tricky semantics iirc 21:11:28 cpressey, Deewiant is the right person to ask here iirc 21:11:38 I forgot what he thought was the best idea 21:11:39 I don't really mind myself since I use vim which can easily save in whatever format I want 21:11:44 But people /do/ use notepad 21:11:53 And programs default to CRLF 21:11:58 c 21:12:04 s/c// 21:12:08 Deewiant, only on windows 21:12:19 Yes, that's what I was talking about all along 21:12:30 well yes 21:13:30 Incidentally, what about s? The first time I read it, I assumed it pops a value from the stack, writes it to (pos+delta), then continues from the just-written value, but I guess interpreters generally tend to skip it, like ' does? (It's "defined" to be "mirror image" of '.) 21:13:38 The only trickiness that comes to mind re. SGML spaces is in what order they are meant to work 21:13:56 I guess I was just hoping for a handy "execute the op currently on top of stack" command. 21:14:05 I mean, where are you after spending three ticks (" included) in "x y" 21:14:14 Deewiant, indeed 21:14:20 Deewiant, where were you? I forgot 21:14:30 I think you're on the y 21:14:44 Seems most sensible to me anyway 21:14:58 err 21:14:59 how 21:15:04 Why would you not be on the y? 21:15:10 well 21:15:14 Enter Stringmode, Push x, Push   21:15:16 what about *on* the third tick 21:15:23 cpressey: You /could/ be on the second space, and you'd skip it only next tick 21:15:24 cpressey, then skip over the second space? 21:15:44 I think that was cause for some confusion anyway 21:15:50 I might misremember, maybe there was some other issue. 21:15:56 yes, iirc it exposed a bug in ccbi 21:16:06 after we found out it wasn't in cfunge as first thought 21:16:21 Hmm, I do think I've always done it the same way 21:16:26 cpressey: You need a sort of a "read-ahead" in stringmode to be on the "y" after the third tick, whereas for the other way (skip extra spaces only on the second tick) you don't. 21:16:38 Since the whole "ticks" thing only makes sense when there are multiple ECs, and multiple ECs are optional, I'm thinking of just dropping it. 21:16:50 Deewiant, yes but you had a bug that hid a bug in mycology in the tests related to i 21:16:51 it* 21:16:53 cpressey: That'd make everything multithreaded unspecified... which sucks 21:17:10 fizzie: Well, I've always thought of it as execute-then-advance-to-next-thing-that-can-be-executed (stringmode or no) 21:17:33 cpressey, indeed 21:17:36 Right, that's a more general issue I think 21:18:02 I may've done it as loop { advance-to-next-executable, execute, move by delta } 21:18:08 In "SGML" that means, push space then advance to next (non-space) thing that can be pushed... I don't see any lookahead involved 21:18:27 cpressey: See what I just said 21:18:52 If you do it as advance-to-next-executable, loop { execute, move by delta, advance-to-next-executable } there's no problem 21:18:59 funny thing... memtest86+ claims L1 speed is 16394 MB/s, L2 speed is 1123 MB/s, and memory speed is 1132 MB/s 21:19:00 so... 21:19:11 my main memory would be faster than L2? 21:19:32 Heh 21:21:28 If you really want to be nitpicky, you could complain about this case: IP 1 executes whatever and moves to location X, which contains some executable-looking instruction; then IP 2 overwrites that with space; now what should IP 1 do? A literal reading of the spec is quite clear: " The IP executed is the one at the current position of the IP. Only after that does the IP moves by its delta to a new position." 21:21:56 On the other hand, the spec is equally clear: "-- space -- cannot ever be truly executed, in the sense of it taking up a tick and doing something." 21:23:09 I think at least my interpreters have opted to possibly move the IP even before execution, if the current position happens to be a space or a ;. 21:23:34 I'm not sure I handle that separately 21:23:47 actually, I think it can't happen 21:24:02 since I handle space in my execute_instruction 21:24:02 It can, if a child IP overwrites your position with a space 21:24:12 as a loop that goes forward looking for next non-space 21:24:17 so hm 21:24:22 But does it then execute the next instruction? 21:24:29 Deewiant, it does after 21:24:33 On that tick 21:24:35 Not the next 21:24:38 Deewiant, yes 21:24:45 So it's all good :-P 21:24:47 Deewiant, I return "continue with same ip" 21:24:54 instead of "continue with next" 21:24:58 I know I've broken and unbroken this many times in CCBI 21:25:04 I may have copied that sort of behaviour from some other interpreter, yes. 21:25:06 Deewiant, same I think 21:25:17 but the thing is 21:25:26 I don't search forward at the end of the cycle 21:25:30 but at the start of the cycle 21:25:42 at the end of the cycle I just move forward one delta 21:25:57 Right, that's one of two alternatives 21:26:09 And it's not entirely specified which one is right, I think. 21:26:20 Yes, that's a bit unclear too, since the "move afterwards" part of the spec only says you should move "as specified by the delta". 21:26:25 and only when I'm about to execute again I check if it is space, then skip forward and execute whatever is after 21:26:29 (assuming non-string mode 21:26:31 ) 21:26:39 (string mode would be somewhat different) 21:26:49 But if you opt for the literal reading of that first part ("you must execute whatever is at the current position, and only move after that") you can't do it like that. 21:27:02 I'm not sure anyone does, though. 21:27:16 fizzie, j would be rather different then for example 21:27:25 For one thing, it sas that you have to execute the "IP -- at the current position of the IP". 21:27:26 fizzie, especially kj 21:27:30 Which doesn't really sense make. 21:27:35 fizzie, this was discussed a few days ago 21:27:36 in here 21:31:04 fizzie, that's a good point. 21:31:53 The "search" does have to occur at the beginning, before the first instruction is first executed anyway. 21:32:33 And it might have to happen if some other EC p'ed a space under the IP. 21:32:36 Yes, that's what I was implicitly demonstrating in my second loop {} style thing 21:32:54 OK, it's clearer now. I'll make a note of it. 21:33:16 And what about that s?-) (Okay, okay, I'll shut up about the s.) 21:33:29 I think the s is pretty obvious even in -98 :-P 21:34:05 Yeah, I didn't think there was anything tooooo controversial about s? 21:34:46 cpressey, indeed I agree 21:35:30 There is a patent on the linked list. Why is there a patent on the linked list. 21:37:22 to protect innovation! 21:37:41 pikhq, there must be prior art 21:37:49 unless that patent is very old 21:37:54 so the patent is invalid 21:37:55 anmaster_l: Fairly recent. 21:38:04 pikhq, then that patent is invalid 21:38:14 There's tons of prior art. Like, *nearly every program*. 21:38:33 Yes, but validity of patents doesn't matter in the US courts. 21:38:40 I have written programs that don't use linked lists. 21:38:56 Deewiant, cpressey, anmaster_l: Oh, don't be like that. "s -- pops a value off the stack and writes it into (position + delta)." It doesn't say anything about advancing the pointer any extra, which made it (to me, anyway) sound like it'd be a fancy instruction that'd let you execute what's on top of stack, since (position + delta) is where the execution would normally continue from. 21:39:00 I want lament as my patent attorney 21:39:01 lament: Yes, but linked lists are an absurdly common data structure. 21:39:11 You only get the skipping behaviour from the vague "it's a mirror image of '" description. 21:39:24 cpressey: that's patently stupid. 21:39:34 fizzie: See, I don't think it's that vague ;-P 21:39:47 Deewiant: It doesn't define what a "mirror image" is. :p 21:40:13 fizzie: yes, I don't think it was intended to skip over. "Mirror image" is merely, uh, imagery. 21:40:37 You don't? O_o 21:40:49 Ha, see! Currently de-facto it does skip over, so it's not usable as-is as an "execute what's on stack" thing. 21:41:01 Okay, so it's not a huge space-waster to put a tight curve in there, but still. 21:41:11 cpressey, what? 21:42:18 Executing what's on stack is trivial anyway, err... aycy+bydy+p (only works in Befunge) 21:42:23 fizzie, or just some # and j magic 21:42:28 And needs a few more adds 21:42:31 But anyway ;-P 21:42:32 I don't remember. 21:42:50 That's not what I'd call "trivial". 21:43:03 data [a] = a : [a] | [];head (x:_)=x;tail(_:xs)=xs 21:43:04 I was jesting 21:43:09 Ooops, I'm violating a patent! 21:43:39 There were *supposed* to be "store left" and "store right" instructions, and corresponding "fetch", that would store stuff beside the path instead of in it 21:43:40 I have to admit that I haven't ever written a program where I'd actually felt the need to execute what's on stack... but it *could* happen! 21:44:04 I think that was in a 99 proposal 21:44:44 99 21:44:50 cpressey, was that a typo for 98? 21:44:54 fizzie: k should have taken its instruction from the stack 21:44:57 anmaster_l: no 21:45:01 cpressey, hm okay 21:45:15 never heard about the 99 stuff before 21:45:20 96 and 97 yes 21:45:37 That's because no one was interested in anyone's ideas for changes after 98 21:45:47 hm okay 21:45:51 There was all kinds of stuff proposed 21:46:11 cpressey, well I think they are good ideas, but I also think they should probably be a set of fungoids 21:46:16 and then everyone is happy 21:48:16 With the current s, I don't see any specifically elegant way of using it for stack-execution. sX^ and then v< on top of X^ works, but all the looping makes the IP dizzy. If you just jump backwards without changing delta, it's hard to avoid ending up in a loop; you can't do something like s#vX< because the s won't reach up to the X. 21:49:26 s;> #;X#< 21:49:38 Deewiant: Won't that just overwrite the ;? 21:49:48 Maybe :-P 21:50:08 Would be cool if it didn't tho 21:50:25 With a non-cardinal delta you can do it semi-elegantly; assuming dx=2, dy=0 for example you could just svX <. 21:50:48 fizzie, what is X there? 21:50:54 "any" 21:50:56 anmaster_l: The thing that gets overwritten by s. 21:50:59 ah 21:51:29 But setting a non-cardinal delta involves an ugly vector. 21:51:53 eval is supposed to be ugly 21:52:04 fizzie, you could also do 0-2 0 'X #vsX x right? 21:52:10 or something like that 21:52:36 I guess so. 21:52:45 err 21:52:49 make that 02- 21:52:51 of course 21:53:21 Though 20x svX < is shorter. I just don't like non-cardinal deltas at all, due to theological observations. 21:53:36 oh? 21:53:48 -!- augur has joined. 21:53:48 oh 21:53:49 ffs 21:54:01 Like the old saying goes: God created the cardinal deltas; all else is the work of man. 21:54:06 They fell less holy, you see. 21:55:45 "The all-pervading nature of the program counter"; what a lovely section title from Wikipedia. 21:55:58 fizzie, so Cardinalidae is more holy?

No. 00:04:22 Derive all our knowledge of chemistry from our knowledge of physics. 00:04:27 Part b is impossible. 00:04:30 Boom! You've proved our knowledge of physics correct. 00:04:42 Part b) is about as impossible as proving that Barack Obama is the president of the United States. 00:04:43 Not /all/ of it. 00:04:44 uorygl: No, you've proved our knowledge of physics consistent with our knowledge of chemistry. 00:04:51 Or that our knowledge of chemistry is flawed 00:05:23 You need to demonstrate that our knowledge of physics is consistent with the universe. 00:06:02 Suppose we have a small set of rules that predicts a huge set of results. 00:06:03 In its entirety. 00:06:14 Which means you need to enumerate all infinity physical possibilities and bring them to pass. You need to destroy the universe by every means that the universe can be destroyed, and oh wait hm that last one was a problem. 00:06:20 Then it can predict those results. 00:06:25 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined. 00:06:44 And we will be happy to use them to predict others. However, we have not proven those other results. 00:06:51 We merely assume them. 00:06:52 Um, let my try again. 00:08:59 Suppose that we have a complete theory of physics, and a huge body of data about chemistry. The body of data about chemistry is much, much larger than the theory of physics. And the complete theory of physics completely predicts that huge body of data. As long as you can be confident that no other complete theory of physics also predicts this body of data, you can be confident that the theory of physics is correct. 00:09:16 ut the data hand't been correleated in all possible ways yet 00:09:23 and eternity passed.. 00:09:30 Why would we want to do this? 00:09:41 We don't care about absolute proof. 00:09:44 And it came to pass that AC learned how to reverse the direction of entropy. 00:09:48 -!- FireyFly has joined. 00:09:54 We care about very, very strong proof. 00:10:00 -!- FireyFly has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 00:10:10 That's not a proof. 00:10:32 You have either proven something or disproven something. There are no degrees. 00:10:33 We care about very, very strong evidence. 00:10:41 uorygl: chemistry involves mainly things composed of protons, neutrons and electrons. these are composed of less than a third of the elementary particles already known to physics (electron, up and down quark) 00:10:45 Yes, we care about very, very strong evidence. 00:10:56 And it is certainly possible to have very strong evidence that something cannot happen. 00:11:04 This is entirely different from "proving it cannot happen". 00:11:10 Never mind that the physics required to explain chemical reactions bears little resemblance to the physics required to explain orbits of planets. 00:11:27 so chemistry only tests a small part of the fundamental theory 00:11:36 I, personally, feel that we have little enough evidence against time travel that even a colloquial use of the term "disprove" is wildly overzealous. 00:12:02 we do not have any evidence against time travel generally 00:12:06 She uses the word “algebra” broadly, defining it as a “method of solving problems by honest confession of one’s ignorance”. 00:12:10 Gregor: Indeed. 00:12:12 I might argue that chemical properties are an extremely sensitive function of physical constants. 00:12:15 But maybe they're not. 00:12:19 however we lack any good theory of time travel that current models would allow 00:12:20 We actually just plain don't know enough to rule it out. 00:12:38 coppro: We also lack comprehensive models. 00:12:44 I sort of wonder what a "proof" is if it's not just very, very strong evidence. 00:12:48 uorygl: it would be like claiming you knew everything about C++ from just knowing the subset in common with C 00:12:49 of course we do 00:13:03 if we had a comprehensive model, physics would be boring 00:13:07 MissPiggy: Where are you getting this from? Sounds like lit-crit mumbo-jumbo 00:13:30 oerjan: yes, I understand what you're saying. One of my conditions was "as long as you can be confident that no other complete theory of physics also predicts this body of data". 00:13:34 uorygl: See mathematical proofs. 00:13:52 cpressey, it's about the book philosophy and fun of algebra 00:13:58 I am confident that no other program computes THIS algorithm! 00:14:02 And when I say "no other complete theory of physics", I mean "no other complete theory of physics that's nearly as simple". 00:14:16 -!- alise has quit (Quit: alise). 00:14:17 And by "other", I mean "different", as in "predicting different things". 00:14:21 uorygl: "Proof" is meaningful only when something can be comprehensively reduced to something else. That is, proof is contextual. It may be possible to prove that our understanding of chemistry is consistent with our understanding of physics, but this proof gives us little, as its utility is dependent on the proof of physics, which we have nothing to reduce to. 00:14:31 pikhq: so are "proof" and "mathematical proof" the same thing? 00:14:41 If he's not back in $soon, I'll worry. 00:14:51 No, but Hume a few bars and I'll fake it! 00:14:56 /rimshot 00:15:02 Colloquially, "proof" just means "very strong evidence" of course, but we're talking about theoretical physics, this is not a colloquial conversation. 00:15:35 uorygl: In any sane formal context, yes. 00:16:11 Prove that the sun will come up tomorrow. 00:16:15 And as we all know, you can't actually prove anything about reality with math. Just something about a nice formal system. 00:16:24 Alternately, make yourself sick worrying that it won't. 00:16:30 cpressey: easy. 00:16:35 cpressey: I sincerely hope it won't, the physical ramifications of the sun moving in such a fashion are horrifying. 00:16:44 no physical theory is proven 00:17:02 cpressey: it has come up every day for the past 1,000,000,000,000 days. We have no good reason to expect that it won't come up tomorrow. Therefore, it will come up tomorrow. 00:17:04 cpressey: Now, if you mean that the Earth will rotate such that from my perspective the sun's position on the horizon rises, that's a different request. 00:17:12 what about elecrtroonics 00:17:12 uorygl: Failure. 00:17:27 Gregor: I argue that it does, in fact, rise 00:17:29 uorygl: You've been around for a trillion days? Impressive. 00:17:33 uorygl that is such a fail argument 00:17:47 (I'm merely poking the most obvious of holes in that argument :P ) 00:17:49 and the other planets rotate the sun as it rotates Earth 00:17:49 uorygl: A lack of a proof against is not a proof for. 00:17:51 induction just doesn't work that way 00:18:00 Well, every bird I've ever seen has been black. Therefore, all birds are black. 00:18:05 What do you mean, induction doesn't work that way? That's precisely how induction works. 00:18:06 coppro: There is no global definition of "up" 00:18:12 you build an explanation of something which doesn't have variables 00:18:12 uorygl: No it's not. 00:18:15 cpressey: you've seen 1,000,000,000,000 birds? 00:18:20 if it fits wear is 00:18:20 pikhq: how do you think it works, then? 00:18:22 coppro: Erm, "global" is a bad term to use ... 00:18:22 it* 00:18:23 Gregor: nothing is defined globally 00:18:27 uorygl: You've seen 1,000,000,000,000 sunrises? 00:18:35 one of the great things of physics 00:18:44 Even better: birds have two wings. Therefore, if a bird loses a wing, it's no longer a bird. 00:19:14 what *is* a bird ? 00:19:18 Well, it;'s not the bird it used to be, anyway. 00:19:19 How much of a sapiens' brain do I have to scoop out before it's no longer a sapiens? :) 00:19:27 Okay, here's a better argument. 00:19:33 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfvEgWINUFc <-- tries to answer that question 00:19:47 nah, the old one is fine 00:19:54 uorygl: I think it works by showing that some statement x in an infinite sequence is true, and that *if any statement in that infinite sequence is true*, then so is the next one. 00:19:54 The Sun has come up every day for the past 1,000,000 days. We have no good reason to expect it won't come up tomorrow. Therefore, it will come up tomorrow. 00:20:06 pikhq: that's an entirely different type of induction. 00:20:11 uorygl stop :((((( 00:20:16 it's a perfectly valid physical theory 00:20:18 uorygl, these kind of arguments make me die inside 00:20:19 Oh, you mean inductive reasoning. 00:20:20 uorygl: You are providing a very compelling /argument/ that the sun will come up. You are NOT proving that it will. 00:20:20 Mathematical induction and inductive logic are not the same thing. 00:20:28 Which is proves nothing. 00:20:30 and calling it "induction" is just as bad 00:20:34 no theory proves anything 00:20:42 MissPiggy: well, please stop dying so much. 00:20:48 Inductive reasoning produces a scientific theory. 00:20:52 Gregor: sure, define "proof" that way. I don't like that definition. 00:20:54 the theory is consistent with observations and makes a prediction 00:20:57 It is not a proof by induction. 00:20:57 uorygl, it should be called the principle of probable monotony 00:21:03 therefore is valid 00:21:03 heuristic principle of probable monotony 00:21:05 MissPiggy: then call it that. 00:21:06 *** 00:21:15 Gregor: general relativity allows you to treat any object as stationary, including the earth. see also http://xkcd.com/123/ 00:21:29 *any one 00:21:50 uorygl, I have a distaste for the heuristic principle of probable monotony because it is a very flawed to conflate this argument with an explanation -- which leads to much deliberation an quibbling on trivial matters 00:22:13 truly it is just a suggestion that one might look for a deeper explanation 00:22:32 oerjan: xkcd #123 doesn't actually use general relativity 00:22:34 it should not be confused with extrapolation either 00:22:36 Anyway, I think it's best to define proof as very, very strong evidence. There's really no practical difference between very, very strong evidence and absolute proof. 00:22:43 which is only valid when the frame of reference is not accelerating 00:22:56 coppro: no, that's _special_ relativity 00:23:18 MissPiggy: the fact that you have a distaste for it and it leads to much quibbling over trivial matters has no bearing whatsoever on whether it forms a strong argument or not. 00:23:26 general relativity is all about acceleration (and its equivalent, gravity) 00:23:36 oh wait, you're right 00:23:38 never mind me 00:23:38 uorygl I thuoght it did 00:23:50 -!- alise_ has joined. 00:23:53 uorygl: "Strong argument" has a completely different notion in math and in science. 00:24:07 A "strong argument" in math is a proof. 00:24:23 A "strong argument" in science is noting that every single time you do something, the same thing happens. 00:24:28 MissPiggy: well, it doesn't. 00:24:44 ufhG! 00:24:50 I must defeat this argument 00:25:57 uorygl: In conclusion: do not invoke the word "proof" unless you are discussing formal reasoning. It is wrong. 00:26:15 Or hard liquor. 00:26:18 it has been shown many times that an even which seems periodic or caused by some effect must not be assumed so simply on the evidence of data but if we can build a simple theory to explain this data 00:26:27 pikhq: so what word am I supposed to use for very, very strong evidence that's practically identical to a proof? 00:26:30 an event* 00:26:38 Evidence. 00:26:54 "Evidence" and "very, very strong evidence that's practically identical to a proof" are not synonyms. 00:27:19 "Since there is evidence that you are guilty, I hereby sentence you to life in prison." Doesn't sound right. 00:27:40 * cpressey invents the word "Gwandocu" for uorygl's use. 00:27:44 Thank you. 00:27:59 yes! 00:28:17 The reasoning is "Since there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty", BTW. 00:28:36 So, if we had a complete theory of physics, it wouldn't necessarily be difficult to come up with gwandocu that it's correct. 00:28:58 "Complete theory"... Could you define that term? 00:29:20 (I presume you mean "theory that explains all observations", but just wish to confirm) 00:29:29 A complete theory is a full mathematical description of everything that happens. 00:29:30 But you could always find people who would not be persuaded, no matter how geemorgul the gwandocu. 00:29:33 So yeah, that. 00:29:52 cpressey: indeed; we call those people irrational, and we try to make them rational so that they believe. 00:29:55 Okay, then. I agree with that statement. 00:30:06 And note that scientific discussion needs the word "gwandocu". 00:30:11 O jeh, o naw, o naw, o naw, o naw. 00:30:49 -!- pikhq has set topic: "Gwandocu (n): Extremely strong evidence, far beyond a reasonable doubt." | alise sighting counter currently out of order | http://tunes.org/~nef/logs/esoteric/?C=M;O=D. 00:33:48 clearly an ancient welsh concept 00:34:13 Has too many vowels. 00:34:28 Would need to be "Gwndycu". 00:34:55 You managed to not turn the easiest-to-turn-into-a-consonant vowel into a consonant. 00:35:26 So I was being consistent with Welsh phonology. 00:35:39 -!- alise_ has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 00:36:48 -!- augur has joined. 00:36:56 If I had more time, I might ask if anyone thinks it's possible to get a complete mathematical description of everything that happens without being omniscient. 00:37:18 I think it's probably possible. 00:37:33 I have no idea what's happening in the Zeta Reticuli system right now. 00:37:50 I have some idea of what's happening in the Zeta Reticuli system right now. 00:37:56 First-hand? 00:38:03 No. 00:38:03 Can I borrow your saucer? 00:38:06 Drat. 00:38:16 So, you have a guess as to what's happening there, then. 00:38:24 Yes, but it's a very good guess. 00:38:32 Well, that's hard to know. 00:38:41 Without a saucer and all. 00:39:33 oh man ive got some many awesome ideas for my game :D :D :D 00:39:40 I wonder if there's any way of verifying that at least some of our laws of physics apply to Zeta Reticuli. 00:39:56 uorygl: ofcourse there are. 00:40:23 I guess we can look at the spectra emitted by the stars and see that they look like black body emission spectra. 00:40:40 And... we really have a lot of data on them. 00:40:40 -!- alise has joined. 00:40:55 we look at Z Reticuli and can observe that the star's size matches what we'd expect from its mass, that this correlates from the expected composition which we can find from its spectra 00:41:04 cpressey: i think if something like wolfram's theory that the universe is generated by a small program is true, then we might eventually find it (or an equivalent program), although we would never be able to prove that it was completely accurate 00:41:29 we can find that it's shape/oblation fits its rotational period 00:41:54 because we could never be sure that we have measured every phenomenon to perfect precision 00:41:55 we can see that it has the same gravitational effects on surrounding stars as its mass would dictate, and that it is affected by the background gravity accordingly 00:41:57 etc etc 00:43:38 Of course, we might be able to find gwandocu that it's completely accurate! 00:43:51 gwandocu? 00:43:54 oerjan: I'll bet it's "Hello, world!" 00:44:02 Later, folks. 00:44:09 -!- cpressey has left (?). 00:44:18 Gwandocu is extremely strong evidence, far beyond a reasonable doubt. 00:44:19 cpressey: that seems to lack a certain necessary complexity 00:44:44 -!- FireFly has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 00:44:53 "Hello, world!" isn't a computer program. 00:44:57 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 00:45:23 uorygl: it is in some languages! 00:45:29 also, what language is gwandocu :| 00:45:50 English. 00:45:58 #esoteric Vernacular English. 00:46:01 oic 00:46:27 Etymology: pronouncable series of letters, chosen on a whim. 00:46:40 ;) 00:47:44 i still say it's welsh 00:48:04 In Welsh it's Gwndycu. 00:48:28 -!- sebbu2 has joined. 00:49:22 -!- sebbu has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds). 00:49:22 -!- sebbu2 has changed nick to sebbu. 00:49:26 pikhq: gwendolyn is a welsh name you know. it's not that far off. 00:52:47 gun-dick-oo 00:53:00 Yeah. 00:56:01 -!- sebbu has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds). 00:56:08 -!- sebbu has joined. 00:56:14 Gregor: general relativity allows you to treat any object as stationary, including the earth. see also http://xkcd.com/123/ 00:56:41 oerjan: Well, not quite, Earth is in an accelerated frame of reference, but anyway, even so the sun most certainly does not come "up", up would be away from the Earth. 00:58:11 Gregor: the sad thing is that he gets it backwards :( 00:58:15 general relativity allows you to treat an accelerated frame as stationary ;D 00:58:18 (it 00:58:25 's just a coordinate choice) 00:58:27 construct newtons laws in a rotating frame and you see there is no centrifugal force 00:58:51 augur: um, no? 00:58:58 oerjan: um, yes? 00:59:02 Yeah, I'm gonna go with "um, no" on this. 01:00:37 oerjan: I think that everything is definable in a reference frame, but not consistent with the behavior of a stationary frame: From an accelerated frame, all other objects appear to be accelerating conversely, but with no force acting upon them. That's inconsistent. 01:00:45 unless what you mean by "get a centrifugal force" is if you calculate something based off of where the revolving object would've gone were it not kept in a circular path by a centripetal force. 01:01:22 but thats inventing a force based on what WOULD have been not what is. there is no centrifugal force that emerges from newtons laws in a rotating reference frame. 01:01:23 Gregor: general relativity treats that as a gravity field caused by the metric of spacetime 01:01:43 there is only a centripetal force and momentum. 01:01:55 augur: do you understand what "in a rotating (coordinate) frame" means? 01:02:08 yes, i do. 01:02:18 oerjan: Oh wait ... this is one of the properties of /general/ relativity that distinguishes it from /special/ relativity, innit?

previous discussion 04:02:34 noooooo 04:02:53 * oerjan beats augur with the saucepan to induce amnesia ===\__/ 04:03:13 an object that is experiencing the so called "centrifugal" force is an object revolving around some centerpoint 04:03:21 the force being away from that centerpoint 04:03:54 but in the rotating reference frame, the object is not moving at all, and thus is, relative to that frame of reference, not experiencing any forces 04:04:16 and thus there is no centrifugal force on it in the rotating frame of reference 04:05:00 now certainly its true that in the rotating f.o.r. an object stationary in the non-rotating f.o.r. will appear to move in a circle and therefore will appear to be affected by some force 04:05:06 but this force is centripetal 04:05:13 not moving at all isn't the same as not experiencing any forces - it just means the forces cancel out 04:05:29 ok, sure, but then the NET force is zero. 04:06:09 sure you could invent some imaginary centrifugal force that is perfectly counterbalanced by some other centripetal force, in this rotating f.o.r. 04:06:10 note that the object is pushed inward by the walls of the centrifuge 04:06:29 well yes, the object IS pushed inward by the wals of the centrifuge 04:06:33 -!- lament has joined. 04:06:34 but thats a centriPETAL force 04:06:40 not a centrifugal force. 04:07:10 augur: yes, but in the _rotating_ frame that is canceled _by_ the centrifugal force, precisely to allow the net force to be zero 04:07:36 oh i see what you're saying 04:07:42 wow 04:07:46 progress :D 04:08:39 e.g. if you had a mass on a spring, if you calculated the forces acting on the force, you would get that the mass is not experiencing non-zero "gross" force 04:09:10 for instance. im using a spring because the visual reasoning is easier in such a case 04:09:37 um is this spring inside the centrifuge, or is this completely unrelated? 04:09:40 yes, ok, definitely. in the rotating frame there would indeed be a centrifugal force. 04:09:48 yay 04:09:58 object on a spring, revolving around the spring's opposite end 04:10:18 so that the spring is stretched beyond it's normal length 04:11:12 but isnt changing, then if you rotated the f.o.r. with the spring, the spring's tensile properties wouldnt change, so the force must be changing 04:11:46 yes, thats interesting. good point. 04:13:16 i think the xkcd comic should have worded it more carefully. 04:14:08 because when i initially read it, i wasnt thinking in these terms, but rather in terms of just constructing the equations for circular motion in a non-rotating reference frame 04:15:59 mhm 04:17:29 but i think there is good argument that any such derivation of a force is genuinely illegitimate by arguing that rotating frames of reference aren't on the same footing as non-rotating frames of reference 04:18:34 e.g. from a rotating f.o.r. you would have to have some sort of "5th force" 04:19:39 see general relativity - you get something indistinguishable from a gravitation field 04:19:57 not gravitational in natural, but rather different, because it has no source, propogates infinitely fast, radiates in only two dimensions, and has a falloff such that all objects, regardless of mass, have precisely the same revolution rate 04:20:36 oh all objects moving the same regardless of mass _is_ a gravitational feature 04:20:46 aye 04:20:54 sorry no what i meant is distance, not mass. 04:21:15 they have same revolution rate but varying speeds of revolution 04:21:19 true 04:21:27 but this is NOT true of gravity 04:21:39 yeah, that probably has something to do with absence of (nonzero) spacetime curvature 04:21:44 infact, with a rotating frame, things can move faster than light. 04:22:03 yeah 04:22:19 the force seems to be really rather different than gravity 04:22:31 maybe its not, but it seems on its outward appearances to be quite different 04:22:53 sure 04:22:57 so is any force 04:23:11 (except, of course, for gravity) 04:23:16 but they are all indistinguishable from gravity in their effectrs 04:23:36 s/r[^r]+$// 04:24:17 right, but what im saying then is that accepting rotating reference frames as on equal footing with non-rotating references frames necessitates the existence of some sort of 5th force 04:24:29 maybe thats a moot point, right 04:24:44 maybe there is this fifth force, and it is generated by objects rotating 04:24:50 and it really does have these properties 04:25:28 oh food -> 04:25:44 iinm, people have analyzed magnetism as just an illusory relativistic version of the electrostatic force 04:27:08 but i think really the fact that this 5th force is so radically different, has no force carrier particles, is undetectable except by people in the rotating reference frame, etc. suggests that its not genuine. 04:27:29 Hm 04:27:43 i mean, maybe in some sense you could detect the frame dragging of the rotating object, but that would take non-zero time to detect from a non-zero distance 04:27:44 I should probably do something like retaking an online test I scored poorly on soonish 04:27:56 whereas the rotating frame would see this force as propogating instantly 04:28:06 Will be unable to in about half an hour 04:30:29 also, if we assume that rotating reference frames are genuinely as valid as other reference frames, you have a world in which things can accelerate and decelerate at rates that have no correlation with their mass, the and gain and loose energy on a whim for no apparent reason, but everything in the universe experiences these things simultaneously by necessity 04:31:00 augur: btw don't be so sure about no force carrier particles. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unruh_effect 04:31:49 let me continue :P 04:31:56 although i guess that could be taken as a way to detect which frames were "really" non-accelerating 04:32:29 i mean, the point is, oerjan, accelerating frames of reference are not equivalent to non-accelerating frames of reference 04:32:51 the laws of physics as observed in them change. this is not true of a constant motion frame of reference 04:33:41 augur: i guess in general relativity it's actually _free-falling_ frames (which are not global btw) which are special, if any 04:33:57 he energy content of the universe would INCREASE 04:34:05 violating the laws of thermodynamics. 04:34:14 -!- Gracenotes has joined. 04:34:19 theres a conclusive reason to take accelerating frames as generally not valid. 04:35:10 augur: ah but you're forgetting gravitational potential. without that, energy is not preserved even in inertial frames i think 04:35:36 im not sure what gravitational potential iss 04:35:46 the sum total of all energy in the Universe is 0 04:35:56 the potential energy due to height differences, say 04:36:14 ah, well, in that case i think it would move above 0 for this sort of thing 04:36:22 unless the fictional force was taken into account maybe 04:37:06 but are you sure it's zero? because a universe of just EM radiation has energy but no gravity 04:37:13 also, the way general relativity really handles this is by saying the coordinate system doesn't actually matter, only the tensors (which change between systems) 04:37:14 so the total energy of the universe cant be zero 04:37:29 augur: there is a theory that the total energy is zero 04:37:34 oh, well. 04:37:49 and that this is how matter/energy could be created in the big bang 04:38:03 the hypothesized zerolity of the universal energy content should not be considered in this discussion ;P 04:38:18 by being offset by negative energy of the space expansion, iiuc 04:38:48 (during the so-called inflation stage) 04:41:34 oh and one more thing, not all solutions to general relativity equations _have_ a meaningful total energy, so a rotating coordinate system may indeed violate that (i don't know) 04:41:59 im not saying its not a potential idea, right 04:42:13 i mean, look, you could say that yes, the laws of the universe are different when viewed in an inertial frame 04:42:16 er 04:42:19 in an accelerating frame 04:42:25 and yes they are just as valid in that frame as well 04:42:29 despite being very different 04:42:39 yet they STILL produce the same universe, isnt that interesting and totally cool 04:42:49 and i'd be on board with that as a queer perspective 04:43:23 but there would still be a little part of me that would want to say "but is it as simple as the non-accelerating frame? because if not, then its probably not real..." 04:44:55 did you look at that unruh article btw? 04:51:34 a little bit. 04:51:53 given that noones actually DETECTED this hypothesized effect... 04:55:56 mhm. it also seems related to hawking radiation, which has the same problem. 04:56:14 how so? 04:56:22 you mean energy content of the universe sorts of problems? 04:56:36 not being detected problem :D 04:56:43 oh 04:56:49 * Sgeo disables tapping on his trackpad 04:56:53 Or whatever it's called 04:56:55 hawking radiation has been detected i think 04:57:04 or maybe its so faint it cant be detected currently 04:57:05 hm 04:57:12 far too faint 04:58:02 it would take a very small black hole to detect 04:58:47 so maybe if the lhc makes some... 04:59:00 (which is very hypothetical afaiu) 04:59:02 also, if the unruh effect IS observable, it seems to only be the emission of photons 04:59:05 not some special force carrier 04:59:36 which makes the unruh effect unlikely to be justifiably said to be the magic force undergirding the force viewed in an accelerating f.o.r. 04:59:39 well the force carrier would be the same as for gravity, since it's the same mathematics... 04:59:57 but the behavior wouldnt look like gravity at all 05:00:34 oh well 05:01:22 all im saying is that i think the rotating frame is arguably not a valid frame of reference. 05:02:10 and that a reasonable observer viewing a video of the universe filmed on a rotating camera would not conclude that the universe had such and such laws 05:02:23 but would instead conclude that the camera was spinning. 05:02:31 and that the universe has the laws we see. 05:03:36 watchmaker 05:03:44 ey? 05:04:06 your argument is like the watchmaker argument 05:04:17 it relies on an assumption of human intuition 05:04:24 which is not valid scientifically 05:08:13 ok, let me rephrase that 05:08:44 i think that in the full space of theories, the simplest one, in all possible formal representations possible, would be the one in which the camera is rotating and the universe is not. 05:13:46 but there are some differences between rotating and non-rotatin unvierses 05:14:00 uh? 05:14:03 so if the universe is rotating, having it not rotate is not a valid interpretation 05:14:30 well 05:14:43 but if the universe IS rotating, then its rotating relative to some non-rotating reference frame 05:14:55 and the simplest laws should still fall out of the non-rotating reference frame 05:15:06 the whole point is that you would discover the universe to BE rotating 05:15:18 whereas with the rotating camera, you dont think the universe is rotating at all 05:15:19 no, that's the fun bit 05:15:32 the universe can rotate relative to nothing in particular 05:15:36 you think the universe genuinely is not rotating, but that it has these crazy laws of physics. 05:15:52 and this gives different results for some things than if it is not 05:15:54 coppro: well sure, in some weird way, but you still describe it as rotating 05:16:01 which is really the point. 05:16:01 note 1: I don't know what thos things are 05:16:07 note 2: Our universe does not rotate 05:16:07 the fact that you understand the universe as rotating 05:16:12 thats the crucial part 05:16:48 if you accept an actually rotating reference frame as being valid, and say that the rotation is not a feature of the reference frame, its all relative 05:16:56 in the same way that inertial references frames are all relative 05:17:24 then you essentiall say that actually no, its acceptable to say the camera isnt rotating, the UNIVERSE is rotating. or the stuff in it is revolving rather. 05:17:27 not like that 05:17:31 which is my point 05:17:45 you cant take rotation to be relative like you take motion to be relative 05:17:46 special relativity would remain valid in a rotating universe 05:17:55 so inertial equivalencies arent rotational equivalences 05:17:59 special relativity might 05:18:05 no, even then it wouldnt 05:18:07 yes 05:18:12 well, in a rotating UNIVERSE, maybe 05:18:15 yes 05:18:19 but im not talking about a rotating universe 05:18:24 you aren't? 05:18:26 im talking about a universe in which the stuff in it is rotating 05:18:34 oh 05:18:40 well, you could have said so 05:18:40 take a camera, spin it. you're not saying a "rotating universe" 05:18:55 well, either perspective is valid 05:19:03 you're seeing a universe that isnt rotating, but in which the objects in it all seem to orbit the camera's viewing axis 05:19:11 but yes, having the camera rotate is much easier 05:19:18 and my point is that i think the second perspective is NOT as valid 05:19:50 because in the grand scheme of things, that hypothesize about the nature of the pictured universe is more complicated than the rotating-camera version 05:20:09 they are both valid 05:20:14 this is general relativity in a nutshell 05:20:20 in the same way that sure, you can say that the sun orbits the earth, and everything else orbits the earth too, only in crazy epicycles at infinitum 05:20:42 sure, thats "equally valid" but its not "equally real" i think. 05:20:51 also, i dont think thats what general relativity says at all. 05:21:08 im willing to bet that general relativity addresses the point in a much finer grained way 05:21:09 define "real" 05:21:14 well, yes 05:21:25 but any and every point of reference is valid 05:21:44 i think the general relativity view would match up with what i mean by valid. 05:22:11 in fact, im CERTAIN it does, because im just mirroring general relativity. 05:22:32 the passage of time is "real" on the accelerating object, hence why the twin paradox exists 05:22:34 can you perform all calculations assuming that everything in the universe is orbiting around a fixed point? yes. Is it useful? no 05:22:48 no no but coppro 05:22:50 thats the thing ok 05:23:07 in general relativity, i think the point is that the UNIVERSE rotating is equally valid 05:23:19 but the UNIVERSE rotating is not the same thing as the stuff IN IT rotating 05:23:22 the twin paradox exists due to the difference in perspective relative to the rest of the universe 05:23:27 right 05:23:30 but thats the point! 05:23:44 the REST universe is not merely the "rest" universe, as in the one not moving 05:23:48 but rather, the one NOT ACCELERATING 05:24:10 the twin paradox ceases to exist if both twins set off in rockets at different times 05:24:27 the twin paradox also ceases to exist if the only two things in the Universe are the two twins 05:24:29 it crucially depends on precisely ONE of them experiencing more acceleration than the other. 05:24:39 no it doesnt cease toe xist 05:25:10 yes, because there is nothing against which to reference the acceleration 05:25:28 ok let me prove to you in a galileian way how you're wrong 05:25:36 suppose that one twin is a pig 05:25:40 as in, loves to eat 05:25:52 he eats SO MUCH that he eats everything in the universe, except his brother 05:26:18 now there are just two things in the universe 05:26:19 the twins 05:26:24 one of which is really _Really_ fat 05:26:39 but according to you, the twin paradox should vanish now 05:27:11 but the relative motions of the masses of the universe is identical 05:27:26 one twin, the thin one, is moving away from the other twin, accelerating at such and such a rate 05:27:43 but this twin being so piggish is merely academic. 05:27:57 we could tie the mass to that twin and the effect would be the same 05:28:12 infact, why bother with the rope, since the masses arent moving relative to one another, we can cut the rope too 05:28:16 and now we're back at the universe as it is 05:28:17 but because there is nothing else to refer to, you can equally say that the other twin is accelerating away 05:28:23 no you cant! 05:28:27 thats the POINT of the twin paradox! 05:28:32 that is NOT what GR says 05:28:44 which breaks down when there is nothing else in the universe 05:28:52 no it doesnt 05:29:00 example: If there is only one particle in the universe, it experiences no force if accelerated 05:29:20 if there is only one particle in the universe, it cant accelerate. 05:29:27 because there would be no forces acting upon it. 05:29:35 modulo quantum weirdness. 05:29:46 a prior theres no forces acting on it 05:29:54 because to have a force acting on it, you need a force carrier particle 05:29:59 thus at least two particles 05:30:20 the only case where the twin paradox can "vanish" is in a case where it cant even happen! 05:30:41 by necessity there is ALWAYS other matter in the universe 05:32:10 you're missing the point 05:32:16 no, _you're_ missing the point 05:32:33 which is that reality doesnt work like you say it does 05:32:36 demonstrably. 05:32:40 as was just demonstrabled. 05:32:47 you never demonstrated it 05:32:51 i just did. 05:33:00 you provided a thought experiment with incorrect conclusions 05:33:07 there is no possible way to accelerate a particle if its the only particle in the universe. 05:33:16 precisely the point 05:33:18 and since the 1-particle-universe is the only one in which you're correct 05:33:28 or rather 05:33:34 the only one in which you could even POSSIBLY be correct 05:33:51 and since we know that in THAT universe, theres no actual way for you to be correct 05:33:54 you must not be correct. 05:34:00 I'd find you a paper, except the book I have which cites it is upstairs and I don't feel like paging through it 05:34:15 you'd find me a paper and i would show you why the paper agrees with me ;) 05:35:34 maybe you're right in some imaginary not-real universe in which force and thus acceleration isnt transmitted by force carriers 05:35:36 maybe you're right 05:35:47 but thats a universe that doesn't exist. 05:36:11 the real universe is one in which the non-accelerating frame is the true frame of reference. 05:38:05 I shall conclude this argument with a brief quote from Wikipedia 05:38:07 "As part of the general theory, all reference frames are equivalent, even rotating frames. " 05:38:40 yes, but like i said, i think the GR notion of "equivalence" is different than what we're using here. 05:40:56 i think the GR notion of equivalence is closer to "has a consistent physical analysis that can describe the same physical phenomena" 05:41:06 e.g. a symmetry 05:41:51 and i think that is entirely true. im willing to BET that rotating reference frames, like the rotating camera, DEMAND general relativity in order to describe them correctly. 05:42:43 that is, if physicists from another dimension saw a video taken on a rotating camera, they'd have to invent general relativity to fully describe the physical laws they saw, if they were assuming that the camera wasn't rotating but that the rest of the universe's objects were revolving around some point. 05:42:48 i would BET that that is true. 05:42:52 -!- jcp has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds). 05:43:07 quite possibly 05:43:43 but surely they'd have to invent it anyways, as it is a required part of describing all phenomena in a non-rotating universe as well? 05:44:49 well, not necessarily. i mean, maybe its true that a priori the laws of physics make this so, regardless of the laws of physics 05:45:17 but maybe not. it could entirely be that what we're calling general relativity is just an artifact of our incorrect assumptions about the nature of the universe 05:45:29 and that its merely an illusion 05:45:31 for instance, newtonian gravity would be insufficient 05:45:41 sure, but you'd have this 5th force remember 05:45:45 plus god knows what else 05:45:53 newtonian gravity couldnt even be conceived of 05:46:17 the entire set of laws would be different 05:46:25 I mean in a non-rotating frame of reference 05:46:29 oh, sure 05:49:07 so either way they'd have to construct the same laws in the end 05:49:17 -!- jcp has joined. 05:49:46 well, laws that would, i really really suspect, but relatable VIA general relativity 05:51:21 huh? 05:52:04 i think it would be general relativity that would relate the two different versions of physics. that GR provides the isomorphism, hence why it IS true that rotating frames are "equivalent" 05:52:45 but thats a hunch, i dont know. 05:53:12 but i think that GR is necessary to describe our universe precisely because you need to be able to do that kind of isomorphism 05:53:21 or whatever kind of morphism it'd be 05:54:24 I'm sort of confused now 05:54:44 nevermind :p 05:54:53 ok 06:00:42 -!- lament has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 06:02:16 -!- lament has joined. 06:03:16 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Good night). 06:06:34 coppro: ok, heres my explanation of what i meant 06:06:42 i think that if you tried to describe the cameraverse 06:06:58 you would read a point where you would invent the _exact_ same GR equations 06:07:21 and in doing so, camera einstein would draw the same conclusions about rotating reference frames 06:07:35 because in cameraverse, a rotating reference frame makes the universe look like realverse 06:08:37 not merely that you would have to invent some sort of equivalent of GR, but that the equations of GR are the same regardless of the starting point, because they're equations that relate different models of physical law 06:08:46 rather than equations that merely describe a new kind of physical law 06:10:29 Okay, I agree 06:10:43 thats my suspicion 06:10:50 now explain how you didn't just prove the equivalence of a universe with nothing rotating and with everything rotating? 06:11:13 well, i think thats the _GR_ notion of equivalence 06:11:31 your argument is that you would make the exact same equations 06:11:36 therefore they are not equivalent? 06:11:40 but thats not the notion of equivalence that i was using in this discussion. actually, i tried to stick to "equally valid" but whatever 06:11:50 theyre GR equivalent, yes. 06:11:56 but i dont think they're equally _valid_ 06:12:06 what do you define as equally valid? 06:12:32 more real, in a deutchean sense of real 06:12:41 deutschean** 06:12:56 I don't quite follow 06:13:06 that is, if you have two models, one of which is simpler, and the other is just a coy rephrasing of the one, by playing some complication tricks 06:13:10 namely because I don't know that word 06:13:25 then the simpler one is more valid as a view on what reality is like 06:13:37 I disagree 06:13:39 e.g. sure, epicycles can model the solarsystem perfectly well 06:13:48 -!- jcp has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 06:14:20 but the heliocentric solar system is simpler, the epicyclic model merely looks like a convoluted attempt to describe a heliocentric model as if it were geocentric 06:14:29 complexity is not, in my mind, the reason that the geocentric system is incorrect 06:14:33 so the heliocentric model is more valid as a guess as to what reality is like. 06:14:54 well, but coppro, you can certainly construct some insane physical theory in which the universe _IS_ geocentric 06:15:10 augur: Sure, but the planets would still rotate the sun 06:15:17 well no thats my point 06:15:18 (the other planets, that is) 06:15:26 you could construct a version where the planets DONT revolve around the sun 06:15:28 they just APPEAR to 06:15:46 only superficially 06:15:53 ah but what is superficial? 06:15:58 this is just reference frame stuff 06:16:04 Superficial in the sense that it would only function so far 06:16:11 no i dont think so 06:16:30 i think it would be completely possible to have a model of physics in which the entire thing is consistent with known facts AND is geocentric 06:16:35 you would have to invent relativity and quantum mechanics at some point 06:16:59 well, at that point we're not talking about solar-system centricity anymore 06:17:05 but we are 06:17:09 no 06:17:10 the universe needs to be taken as a whole 06:17:19 yes, but thats what im saying 06:17:54 if you believe the universe is geocentric, which is to say that it revolves around the earth, as opposed to its center of mass (if one exists), i think the laws could still work out 06:17:59 but they'd be complicated as hell 06:18:17 or maybe they'd just be some sort of vector translation over current laws, who knows 06:18:38 this is why, for instance, Newtonian mechanics failed at describing the precession of Mercury accurately 06:19:03 sure, but that doesnt mean you cant embellish the theory further and further 06:19:16 i think it would be entirely possible to embellish 06:19:31 i just think the embellishments would be some sort of coy recoding of heliocentricity 06:19:41 You can 06:19:45 and thats my point 06:19:58 you have this intuition that coy recoding is not a valid translation of reference frames 06:20:08 If you embellished it enough, you would result at a theory as accurate as general relativity that was far more complex but equally valid 06:20:09 and i think that the GR-rotating-frame thing is merely a coy recoding. 06:20:21 I do not have such an intuition 06:20:36 you apparently have this belief that heliocentrism is more valid than geocentrism 06:20:38 therefore you do. 06:21:05 unless you're changing your mind and saying that yeah what the heck, the solar system is geocentric and the different embellished physics is just as valid. 06:21:32 I have a belief that no one has yet come up with any geocentric theory as accurate as our heliocentric ones 06:22:01 true, but who's been trying for the last 500 years. 06:22:06 A geocentric theory, if embellished to the point of agreeing precisely with our best heliocentric theories, will be accurate 06:22:08 and thus valid 06:22:11 and why bother? itll be a horrendous theory 06:22:29 the heliocentric solarsystem is simpler, makes more sense, etc. 06:22:38 its just better 06:22:57 and i would say a more valid model of what the universe is REALLY like 06:23:08 Oh, I completely agree 06:23:15 the heliocentric model would be much cleaner and nicer 06:23:17 but no more valid 06:23:22 im just taking david deutscher's line here, btw. 06:23:33 do note that you must include the other criterion of theoretical validity though 06:23:35 er, deutsch** 06:23:42 which is the amount of prediction a theory makes 06:23:55 well, im considering equally accurate models. 06:24:17 if your geocentric theory cannot accomodate a brand new object placed somewhere between here and the sun without manually finangling with it, the theory is less valid, since our heliocentric theory can 06:24:28 i mean, this is verging on metaphysics here, ill be honest, ok 06:24:49 two completely extensionally equivalent models can, i think, differ in how valid they are as models of reality 06:24:52 simplicity is not, in and of itself, a test of validity 06:24:57 in my opinion 06:25:06 i dont care about your opinion. this is obvious. :P 06:25:11 no, it's intuitive 06:25:20 which is different from correct 06:25:22 i think reality is simple. 06:25:25 see: Paley's watchmaker argument 06:25:31 fact: reality is not simple 06:25:37 his watchmaker argument is unrelated to this. 06:25:41 not at all 06:25:44 yes, it is. 06:25:50 your falling prey to the exact same fallacy 06:25:54 no, i'm not. 06:26:02 because his argument is in FAVOR of simplicity. 06:26:27 well, the argument against his argument, rather. 06:26:38 evolutionary biology is simpler than God. 06:26:42 this is why paley is wrong. 06:26:54 that's not why Paley is wrong 06:27:03 i just believe occam's razor wholeheartedly 06:27:15 Paley is wrong because his argument starts with the assumption that the watch is too complex to be natural 06:27:19 i dont think occam's razor is a methodological tool, i think its a fact about reality. 06:27:36 augur: do you know anything about quantum physics? How the fuck is that simple? 06:27:51 augur 06:28:01 quantum mechanics is probability in 3 dimensions, or something along those lines. 06:28:16 *augur: Think about math. There is a set-theoretical definition of the integers that is just as valid as the version that just uses numerals 06:28:22 its actually quite beautifully simple when you work it out from a non-historigenic perspective. 06:28:34 the fact that it is more complex does not make it incorrect 06:29:04 you can derive the core weirdness of QM almost entirely from taking normal probability and augmenting it with like one extra dimension for degrees of freedom, or something like that. 06:29:26 coppro: i didnt say incorrect 06:29:28 you're not listening 06:29:34 i said less real. 06:30:17 you said less valid 06:30:27 yes, valid, as a model of whats real. 06:30:40 This conversation becomes a billion times funnier if I replace "non-historigenic" by "non-hystorigenic" 06:30:52 which is to say, how close it is to looking like the way the thing actually is 06:30:52 valid only has one meaning with regards to theories 06:30:57 as I've explained 06:31:08 #1: Does it match all observations 06:31:12 #2: Does it make predictions 06:31:15 well luckily the original context of its use in this discussion wasnt in regards to theories! 06:31:25 Sure it was 06:31:29 but rather in regards to frames of reference 06:31:34 a frame of reference is not a theory 06:31:35 All physical laws are theories 06:31:44 yes but a frame of reference isnt a physical law. 06:31:55 In the context in which you are using it, it is 06:32:02 we've drifted over into the physical law territory at this point 06:32:03 yes this is true 06:32:38 but we started with frames of reference, and i assumed that an intelligent person like you would be smart enough to understand that the word was being used to mean the same thing, despite the conventionally different usage when applied to theories 06:32:52 now, as I said, a theory could be considered more valid because it makes more predictions 06:33:07 as i said coppro, you're wrong. 06:33:12 why? 06:33:27 because the sense of valid i have been using throughout the conversation is the one i started with 06:33:36 which happens to have been used in a context of frames of reference, not theories 06:33:43 I disagree that there is any significant difference 06:33:53 and i dont give a shit 06:33:57 because there IS a difference. 06:34:02 a frame of reference is not a theory. 06:34:17 therefore your idea of validity for theories is irrelevant. 06:34:20 There is a theory of which frame of reference is correct 06:34:29 if you disagree with this, then were merely arguing over the lexical semantics of the word "valid" 06:34:40 in which case this isnt an argument at all 06:34:44 but rather a miscommunication 06:34:57 it may be a miscommunication, but the fundamental argument is still there 06:35:02 but its not 06:35:10 because a frame of reference is simply not a theory 06:35:36 as I do not believe that there is any particular reason why a rotating frame against a static universe is any more real or valid than a static frame against a rotating universe 06:35:54 which is your fundamental point 06:36:14 yes, but as ive already said, i believe that there is. 06:36:20 whether you AGREE with that or not is not relevant. 06:37:28 what it comes down to is in many ways theory-related in nature tho, this is definitely true, but again, as ive said even so far as theories are concerned, i believe that two equally accurate theories can differ in how similar the theory-qua-intension reflects the actual structure of reality 06:37:37 Right, and I do not agree 06:37:40 which is the point of this argumen 06:37:42 *argument 06:37:47 we are arguing over the point I just described 06:37:50 how many types of types are there? 06:37:55 adu: infinitely many. 06:38:08 wow 06:38:41 coppro: since there is no actual way to resolve this dispute, as i have said multiple times: your disagreement with what i think doesn't matter. 06:38:56 there's gotta be a way to simplify that, like maybe oo/2 or something 06:39:08 its even worse, adu 06:39:18 augur: so now you are not only telling me that I am wrong, but that my opinion does not matter; welcome to /ignore 06:39:26 there are as many types as the largest kind of infinity 06:39:34 and since there is no largest infinity, you're fucked D: 06:39:57 coppro: im saying that it doesnt matter because its not something that we can argue over and come to a conclusion. 06:40:17 what about constructive type theory, like X is a type, and F is a function type, so F X is a type 06:40:36 then there would be 2 types of type 06:40:38 that probably doesnt change anything. 06:41:03 because you can define horizontal types of arbitrary number 06:41:15 horizontal?!? 06:41:20 yes 06:41:34 do you mean different names? 06:41:37 within type theory you can view types as existing in two-ish dimensions 06:41:49 so consider the following types: 06:41:53 Integer, String, Boolean 06:42:02 k 06:42:09 now consider Integer -> Boolean, Boolean -> Boolean -> Boolean, etc. 06:42:14 * adu considers 06:42:23 the latter two are dependent upon the existence of the previous three, right? 06:42:28 theyre built out of them, in some sense 06:42:41 yes 06:42:48 we could describe this relation as a horizontal type distinction 06:43:07 the differences between Integer, String, and Boolean, however, are not the same 06:43:12 they're horizontally related 06:43:21 You could imagine a type system with only horizontal types 06:43:29 e.g. a language in which you dont have function ty 06:43:30 types 06:43:44 at least, you dont have function types in any salient sense 06:44:14 e.g. C, in which sure maybe you have function types associated with functions, but function types arent of the same ontological status in the type system as value types are 06:44:54 you cannot, for instance, do higher order functions, so function types in C arent really things that you can talk about like you can with value types 06:45:05 you could, however, have the reverse -- a system with only function types 06:45:21 and one "horizontal" type, in some sense 06:45:34 My C compiler offers first-class functions. 06:45:44 a system in which non-functions are of type Value, and everything else is a function type of some sort 06:45:57 pikhq: C99+yaddayadda whatever it is that they use at apple now? 06:46:08 Clang. 06:46:18 I don't have an Apple system. 06:46:19 the newest versions of C, as forked by apple i think, have higher order functions, which necessitates real function types. which is pretty cool. 06:46:39 but the point is understandable i think. 06:46:54 function types and value types really different in some sense conceptually 06:47:01 no, it does not offer first-class functions 06:47:05 it offers blocks 06:47:20 coppro: well, the versions ive seen have first class functions. 06:47:42 which may be called blocks, but in-language they're indistinguishable from functions, as far as i can tell. 06:48:27 and are distinct from blocks in the normal sense of the word in programming where the clauses of an if statement are blocks. 06:49:05 coppro: "Blocks" are a first-class function type. 06:49:14 Which happen to be distinct form normal functions. 06:49:31 Erm. From. 06:49:55 Technically correct, though misleading in the context of C 06:50:16 But they're functions and they're first-class values. 06:50:37 What more do you want, aside from being able to implicitly cast from function pointers to block pointers? 06:50:57 (and vice versa) 06:53:16 coppro: again, given that the C was used merely as an example to intelligent people capable of understanding the nature of the nit picky details in terminology, it should be relatively clear that your pedantic distinctions are pointless, because we already knew everything you're saying, or would be fully capable of understanding the trivial distinctions being made. 06:53:51 you seem to have significant problems carrying on normal discourses. 06:56:39 this is one of the problems with me being a linguist. ive actually done research on what constitutes successful conversations, and can identify failures, and yet am powerless to correct them. 06:58:22 -!- FireFly has joined. 06:59:04 -!- kar8nga has joined. 07:01:30 -!- tombom has joined. 07:11:00 http://trololololololololololo.com/ 07:11:03 augur: Ouch. 07:11:09 ey? 07:14:49 -!- jcp has joined. 07:15:31 augur: He's a good ...

But not in everyday speech I guess) 12:24:01 Humans are pretty good at picking up the "real" pitch from the harmonics even if the transport channel actually filters it, physically speaking. 12:24:09 s/read/hit/ 12:24:20 (weird typo, was trying to to two things at once) 12:24:42 fizzie, hm interesting. From overtones I guess? 12:25:00 Case in point: a usual fundamental frequency for normal male speech is around 100 Hz, yet no-one notices that much even though telephone systems generally have a huge attenuation at that low frequencies. 12:25:20 -!- alise has joined. 12:25:28 fizzie, I can hit just above the lowest C on a standard piano with my voice though 12:26:14 I don't really know very much on the biology side of how auditory perception works, except that the ear is a strange thing, and what goes on after the ear is even less simple. 12:26:35 I don't quite reach it. Of course it doesn't actually sound good at the lowest bit. For something I actually could *speak* in it would be maybe one octave higher I guesstimate 12:29:36 Well, the "middle C" is around 260 Hz, and I assume that "middle" on the piano; is the lowest C three octaves downward? 12:29:51 If it is, that'd be something like 32 Hz. 12:30:03 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piano_key_frequencies 12:30:19 fizzie, around 32 Hz yes 12:30:58 Right. That's pretty low. 12:31:30 fizzie, I can go past the D just above it, but not quite reach the C or C#. Of course I couldn't actually say anything at this level. Trying to modulate the sound around there to speech just doesn't work. 12:31:52 a bit above it does work for that. 12:32:24 fizzie, so I hit somewhere between 34 and 36 Hz I guess (since I can't quite reach that C# either) 12:33:49 fizzie, ever tried making a noise at the same frequency as the car engine while traveling in car? 12:34:12 Can't say I have. 12:34:14 it feels strange when you hit the same tone. 12:36:13 19:16:34 you know, I sort of like this channel without alise being here all the time 12:36:13 I do logread, you know 12:37:34 alise, so now you have your mac running I see :) 12:37:53 Uh, yes, on top of an ironing board.

12:52:01 22:30:52 which is to say, how close it is to looking like the way the thing actually is 12:52:01 You can only measure this with metaphysics 12:52:10 alise, ^ 12:52:16 Things "actually are" a theory if it predicts them perfectly 12:52:34 Any other distinction is human intuition, and we can select equivalently valid theories based on how much we like them (e.g. simplicity for working with) 12:52:35 That's all. 12:53:13 22:37:50 how many types of types are there?

(env) 16:25:55 Deewiant, so 3 zeros in total between env and argv? 16:26:53 Deewiant, no? 16:27:01 Well, two zeroes in addition to the one which terminates the last arg, yes 16:27:06 right 16:27:20 and only one extra zero below the env vars 16:27:24 hm 16:30:02 That makes a certain twisted kind of sense in that the double null is to allow (isolated) empty arguments, but it's impossible on most if not all OSs to have an empty environment variable 16:30:37 Deewiant, is it? 16:30:46 Deewiant, ./cfunge foo.b98 "" "" "" 16:30:46 What would it even mean? 16:30:54 I think that should do it? 16:31:02 Do what? 16:31:32 oh I thought you said "impossible [...] to have an empty argument" 16:32:40 Deewiant, and yeah, I can't imagine how you can get anything shorter than "X=", where X is any letter 16:33:13 Yep 16:35:53 -!- kar8nga has joined. 16:39:13 Deewiant, I have a fix for both, however since this changed some things that FRTH and y are the only users of I need to carefully test FRTH with edge case arguments 16:39:19 before I can push this 16:39:38 * AnMaster tries to remember the semanics for FRTH P 16:41:17 Deewiant, http://rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#FRTH doesn't say if P should start indexing at top or bottom 16:42:52 Well, it *is* called "*Forth* pick command". 16:43:12 fizzie, and I don't know forth, I remember checking some forth manual for these when I implemented it 16:43:20 6.2.2030 PICK 16:43:20 CORE EXT 16:43:20 ( xu ... x1 x0 u -- xu ... x1 x0 xu ) 16:43:20 Remove u. Copy the xu to the top of the stack. An ambiguous condition exists if there are less than u+2 items on the stack before PICK is executed. 16:43:20 but I don't remember what the actual semantics were 16:43:43 Where right side is the top. 16:43:50 fizzie, so 0 is top item? then 1 is the one below? 16:44:09 well, after popping the count 16:44:14 Yes. "0 pick" does the same as "dup". 16:49:04 also I saw a way to optimise y as pick to be faster after first run. will probably implement that later 16:49:19 (except no one uses that...) 16:50:23 What way's that 16:51:54 Deewiant, caching size of env and arguments. Then add a fixed constant + number of stacks on stack-stack + cached value to get where picking would begon 16:51:56 begin* 16:53:30 fizzie, what is forth -roll btw? 16:53:44 I thought you already did something like that? 16:53:49 -!- lereah_ has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 16:53:50 Deewiant, not quite 16:55:24 btw it seems http://rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#FRTH was retconned to mean that negative arguments to L should not reflect 16:55:32 if he at least could provide a change log 16:56:04 (not that I'm going to change things here...) 16:56:31 -!- augur has joined. 16:58:09 AnMaster: Intuitively I would expect "-roll" to be the same thing as "roll" except rotating to the other direction, but I can't actually find it in the standard. 16:58:29 aha 16:59:21 fizzie: I think it was an extension, I found it in some manual. 16:59:28 I should then make it error out I guess, unless you can call undefined forth functions in forth. And thus reflecting is the correct thing to do 16:59:32 -!- tombom has joined. 16:59:35 :) 17:00:37 Deewiant, btw I found a bug in FRTH: when the stack size is greater than range of funge_cell (cfunge always allow stack to grow to size_t-1 in theory 17:00:48 (err, that is max value of size_t) 17:02:16 Deewiant: It could be. Gforth has as an extension "-rot" which is "rot except the other direction", so it's not a completely unexpected extension. 17:02:17 (but if you have a stack larger than 2 GB, I think you have other issues than that) 17:02:48 The stack can easily be larger than 2 GB on a 64-bit system. 17:03:10 Deewiant, pushed fixes 17:03:23 and I was unable to detect any issues with FRTH apart from the above mentioned 17:03:34 Deewiant, sure, but then my answer is: use 64-bit cells 17:03:59 -!- cheater99 has joined. 17:04:00 Deewiant, in which case it now needs to be larger than a signed 64-bit value, but fit in an unsigned one 17:04:15 My point was that you can't say "this doesn't matter that much because you're in other problems at that point anyway" 17:04:32 Deewiant, well, now FRTH will work anyway 17:04:42 -!- jcp has joined. 17:05:05 Deewiant, also yes you have other problems at that point.

And libraries. Yes you could probably manage more than 2 GB stack if you could malloc() such a huge continuous chunk 17:11:15 actually wait 17:11:21 no you couldn't grow the stack that much 17:11:30 since you need to multiply it by 4 for cell size 17:11:37 AnMaster: If I'm running a chroot or whatever or I'm running cfunge in 32-bit mode I am completely problemless 17:11:41 (or 8 for 64-bit funge cells) 17:12:33 Deewiant, but you see, 4*(2^31-1) is more than you can fit in 2^32 unless I'm completely mistaken 17:12:44 I never said it wasn't 17:13:21 Deewiant, and due to that, it will actually not be possible to get a stack on a 32-bit funge with 32-bit size_t where the stack size doesn't fit in a single funge cell 17:13:22 I said that if you have 2 GB of stack on a 64-bit system you are in no problems at all 17:13:51 Deewiant, indeed.

Mathematics is precise, but philosophy is abstract and arbitrary. 18:55:35 dev_squid: philosophy *of* mathematics 18:55:41 dev_squid: do numbers exist??? 18:55:47 That doesn't make much sense either. 18:55:50 it's somewhat of a valid question 18:56:18 what is a number 18:56:19 dev_squid: Books like "New Kind of Science" and "Goedel, Escher, Bach" qualify as "mathematical philosophy" to me. 18:56:20 That's a valid question, but it's not profound enough to consider it philosophy. 18:56:35 Not the same as philosophy of mathematics, quite. 18:56:41 dev_squid: what. 18:56:50 what's the threshold for profoundness then? 18:57:03 I guess it's up to the person asking. 18:57:18 or rather, what branch of science should address this question, if not philosophy of mathematics? 18:57:24 dev_squid, philosophy just means critical thinking it doesn't have to be profound but obvious profound stuff is some of the best/most famous philosophy 18:57:33 I don't think it's a question worth addressing, personally. 18:57:33 obviously* 18:57:53 dev_squid: why, is the answer obvious? 18:58:01 It's obvious to me. 18:58:13 what is the answer?? 18:58:27 There is no definite answer, for sure. 18:58:30 ... 18:58:34 But... 18:58:46 dev_squid philosophy doesn't care if there's a definite answer or not 18:58:54 dev_squid the whole point is the journey 18:59:03 It depends on how you define "numbers". 18:59:13 "Computational irreducibility" seems to be "You can't predict the final state of a (complex) program without running it". Sounds like a layman-formatted version of undecidability to me. 18:59:14 (although some philosophers say that if there is a definite answer it's not philosophy any more, I don't agree with that) 18:59:34 cpressey, yeah I can't understand why it is even mentioned it is so weird.. 19:00:00 MissPiggy: To sell more copies of Mathematica, of course. 19:00:08 Wolfram is a marketing machine. 19:00:34 cpressey, that's some crazy shit. What exactly isn't predictable but that's traceable? 19:01:08 dev_squid, imagine some terribly complicated progarm that happend to always print 1 :P 19:01:39 dev_squid: Well, take the Life automaton for example. If I give you a random starting configuration, can you tell me if there will eventually be a glider at some coordinates (x, y)? 19:03:56 cpressey, are you asking if I -personally- can predict it, or if -anything- could predict it? 19:04:37 ((p nand q) nand r) nand (p nand ((p nand r) nand p)) = r 19:04:53 apparently that's all you need to define nand ? :| 19:05:05 dev_squid: Well, not you personally :) Say "any computer program". 19:05:11 where's oklopol 19:05:13 can clue do that? 19:05:14 here 19:05:21 oh my god are you arelly there! 19:05:21 yes 19:05:41 Bootstrapped NAND, I never thought of that. Nice. 19:05:46 cpressey, I do remember reading about complicated algorithms that could calculate a future generations without simulating each generation seperately, IIRC. 19:06:00 cpressey, is that what you mean? 19:07:32 cpressey, but without simulating it, I guess you could say you can't calculate when the next time state N will occur. 19:07:35 dev_squid: Assuming such algorithms exist -- yes, I'm referring to the fact that running those algorithms are tantamount to running the Life automaton. 19:08:08 Features, schemeatures: added that thing into twungot where it replies whenever someone tweets with the string @fungot in it. 19:08:09 fizzie: indeed, do any search for air france 296 19:08:30 dev_squid: It all derives from the Halting Problem. 19:08:40 cpressey, yep. 19:09:00 but what is the meaning of it all? 19:09:06 lament :( 19:09:45 cpressey, so you can't calculate the next time state N will occur without actually running the program. 19:09:46 I see. 19:10:07 (or a more complicated version of the program) 19:10:09 dev_squid: Not *in general*, no. In some special cases, yes. 19:11:02 Like, if I have a set of configurations where I've already run them and cached where the gliders end up, and you give me a configuration that happens to be one of those... as a trivial example. 19:11:03 cpressey, yep. 19:11:32 cpressey, I'm thinking of Hashlife. 19:11:38 cpressey, *facedesk* 19:12:05 Ah, I see. 19:12:06 * MissPiggy 's todo list contains: implement/understand hashlife 19:12:15 something which I probably wont actually ever do... 19:12:24 Yeah, it looks like a kind of abstract interpretation of Life. 19:12:53 MissPiggy, I don't understand it, and I doubt I ever will. 19:13:04 Thing is, there will always be some Life configurations where running them in Hashlife won't be any faster. 19:13:06 I don't imagine it's very difficult 19:13:45 * cpressey 's todo list contains "understand and implement generalized abstract interpretation" :) 19:14:07 lament but what does it mean to understand something? 19:14:31 cpressey, I was under the impression Hashlife doesn't iterate generations at all, but it seems like it does...just, a lot faster. 19:16:14 Hashlife just works by noting that Life patterns are highly redundant. And so, it can memoise the iteration of patterns. 19:16:19 It looks like it does iterate generations, at first, and as it does so, it "recognizes" the patterns in them. After it has recognized the patterns, it uses them to process the evolution. 19:16:25 MissPiggy: but what does mean mean? 19:17:23 For instance -- gliders. It can, instead of computing each and every cell in the glider pattern, simply fetch the next needed portion of the pattern out of its hash table. 19:18:03 Thing is, (and I'm basing this on the idea that Life is TC), it should be possible to find Life forms that don't get significantly simpler over time. Some kind of puffer train which grows utter crap behind it comes to mind. 19:18:12 fizzie: Will it reply to @fungotfoobar as well? 19:18:13 Deewiant: oznaczono jako spam lmmfao that had me laughing the whole films takes place in slow motion affect you can hear the engiens running, it would be 2 flight crew, and not what you'd expect! 19:18:44 f(z) = z 19:18:44 This map is called the identity map, and is extremely boring. 19:18:55 whatusedtobefungotboring 19:18:56 lament: i personally liked the mr. potato head one.... really awesome, and not a single reply before posting the same 24-second video that was a " man" a " pussy" a high vocabulary level. 19:19:20 cpressey :D I wonder what the life equivalent of busy beaver is 19:19:24 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Life Man. 19:19:49 MissPiggy: A busy beaver. 19:19:57 Deewiant: No, because those don't end up on the "mentions" Twitter API listings. 19:19:58 pikhq what the fuck 19:19:59 Life describes a TC system. 19:20:02 are you trolling 19:20:20 pikhq: No, other Life. 19:20:21 fizzie: Ah, you're using a clever API. 19:20:35 this is like that time when I was wondering how to prove something was undecidible and you said "halting problem" 19:20:46 it's suck a fucking awful answer I can't tell if you are trolling or not 19:20:47 Deewiant: Since they've bothered to provide a nice, RESTful JSON-driven API, I might as well use it. 19:21:03 Yes, I suppose you might. :-) 19:21:55 MissPiggy: Life is equivalent to a Turing-machine. Thus, the busy beaver analogue is merely an implementation of a busy beaver machine in Life. 19:22:01 shut up 19:22:29 pikhq: f(z) = z 19:22:30 This map is called the identity map, and is extremely boring. 19:22:47 what is life? 19:22:51 MissPiggy: When you ask a boring question, you get a boring answer. 19:23:00 Twungot (undocumented, unpretty) code is in fungot's git repository anyhow. 19:23:00 fizzie: what if she is so funny... 19:23:07 MissPiggy: isn't the identity map pretty interesting? 19:23:11 i mean, what's the type signature? 19:23:18 lament this is from terry tao 19:23:25 yeah well he can suck it 19:23:42 lament: The B3/S23 2 dimensional cellular automaton. Known to be Turing-complete. 19:24:03 pikhq: great answers to great questions 19:24:23 lament: Of course, if you don't grok that, that doesn't help you. But, then, you're here, so. ;) 19:24:40 but what's the MEANING of life? 19:24:54 Beats me. 19:25:00 z = f(z) = f(f(z)) = f(f(f(z))) = (the remainder of this sequence has been hashlifed into constant space) 19:25:23 I guess the other question is, where is Hashlife for Turing Machines? 19:26:00 normal turing machines don't have so much redundancy 19:26:08 True. 19:26:48 Yeah, Life has all that symmetry. It's pretty bloated that way. 19:27:23 So back to my original question, is it impossible (due to parity) to make a transistor that halves a 4-micron current in WireWorld? 19:27:36 Life needs some spontaneous symmetry breaking. 19:27:44 I've been trying and I get it either on generation too fast or one too slow. 19:28:02 dev_squid: Been a lot time since I've WW'ed. From faint echoes of firings of neurons, I would guess, yes, it's impossible. 19:28:17 Complete guess. 19:28:27 Seem to remember having similar frustrations. 19:28:32 Could be completely wrong. 19:28:34 cpressey, I think the current has to be of n-micron where n is odd. >:( 19:29:30 cpressey, or it could just be that it's too small of a gap, much like in how 4-micron currents can't go through the smaller logic gates. 19:29:42 *properly 19:30:14 I'll try it with 5-micron. :) 19:30:56 the turing machine example that comes with Golly is just one way to make a turing machine 19:31:09 and turing machines araen't the only way to impleement N -> N functions in Life 19:31:38 MissPiggy, yerp. 19:31:47 there is a limit on the size that a life pattern can grow, it takes n steps (minimum) to reach n pixels away 19:32:03 and finding a configuartion that fills space as fast as possible is trivial 19:32:31 but that configuration is not a busy beaver 19:32:40 it only computes O(n^2) 19:33:48 that's why it's an interesting question and 'shut-up' answers like "just implement it in the turing machine" are not good 19:35:23 Okay, so you want the non-trivial busy beaver configuration for Life. 19:35:37 You should say as much. Otherwise you get simple answers. 19:35:50 pikhq it's not my homework 19:36:02 I just mentioned this because it's interesting 19:36:03 ... 19:36:18 Did I even claim that? 19:36:30 I simply gave you a trivial answer to a trivial question. 19:37:24 ok 19:40:54 -!- asiekierka has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds). 19:46:00 Dumb question incoming. 19:46:11 ANDNOT=NAND? 19:47:02 All Wireworld references I've seen call them ANDNOT gates...why not just NAND? 19:48:25 "An AND-NOT gate calculates the function ‘A AND NOT B’." -- at least that sort of function is not NAND. 19:48:26 -!- hiato has joined. 19:49:01 p and not q != not (p and q) 19:49:02 So ANDNOT is not NAND? 19:49:12 I see. 19:50:38 MissPiggy, you could implement Hashlife for Langton's Ant. 19:50:43 ... Hashant. 19:50:51 I've also noticed that the XOR gates they've described don't have a clock structure to output a 1 when there is not input (i.e. 0 xor 0)...so are they not -true- XOR gates? 19:52:04 XOR doesn't need a clock, as long as when both inputs are 0 the output is 1, it should be no problem. 19:52:40 cpressey, the gate isn't 'active', so if there is no input, there is not output. 19:53:03 Hm, then yes,it is some pseudo-XOR, I'd say. 19:53:08 Yep. 19:53:41 You could construct a 'real' XOR gate with an AND and then NOT structure. 19:54:38 Uh.. isn't 0 XOR 0 supposed to be 0, anyway? XOR is true for (1, 0) or (0, 1); false for (0, 0) or (1, 1). 19:54:53 fizzie, no. 0 xor 0 is 1. 19:55:06 That's a very strange sort of exclusive-OR. 19:55:08 Oh, wait. 19:55:18 *facedesk* 19:55:24 Oh, confusion between XOR and EQU I think. 19:55:27 I totally don't understand any boolean domain except {0,1} 19:55:31 EQU being the inverse of XOR 19:55:43 Oh, yeah I confused it. 19:56:00 Again, *facedesk*. Pardon my faggotry. 20:01:24 So it turns out, in my experimental term-rewriting language, the terms *being rewritten* may contain variables. This was an accident, and strikes me as somewhat... unwholesome. However, until I understand the implications, I'm hesitant to take it out. 20:02:10 :D 20:02:35 let (a @x) -> (b @x) in (a 5) ==> (b 5) <-- that's normal (@x denotes a variable.) 20:03:26 let (a 5) -> (b @x) in (@x 5) ==> (b a) <-- that's nuts. 20:17:16 -!- oerjan has joined. 20:19:31 -!- Asztal has joined. 20:23:07 horrible music interrupted by "you now have place number 5 in the queue" 20:23:19 well what were you doing in the queue to HELL anyway 20:31:23 alise talks too much. 20:31:50 oerjan quotes too much 20:31:56 after that discussion you and coppro had in the logs, you shouldn't be complaining ;D 20:33:20 oklopol doth protest too much. 20:33:22 oklopol: don't worry, that was the last one for now 20:34:54 i was just hoping you'd quote me and say something witty! 20:35:15 oerjan quotes too much <-- no i don't! 20:35:21 like that? 20:35:54 yes, thank you 20:37:55 so 20:38:01 what discussion did they have? 20:39:10 about whether a rotating coordinate frame is as valid as a non-rotating one. it was my fault for bringing it up, actually. 20:40:38 well if you mention coordinate frames, what can you expect except a flamewar 20:40:56 wouldn't a framewar be more likely? 20:41:18 must've been a typo 20:41:27 how typical 20:50:21 hmm, they found a side-channel attack against RSA 20:50:34 where you can brownout a system trying to do the calculations and figure out the private keys that way 20:50:50 what's brownout? 20:51:59 when a system doesn't have enough voltage on the input to operate correctly, but it doesn't have low enough voltage that it turns off altogether 20:52:20 some systems have explicit brownout detection circuitry; the rest just malfunction in that situation 20:52:34 o_O 20:53:25 that reminds me of that jvm attack which depends on random faults in memory 20:53:55 s/faults/errors/ 20:54:29 both seem to depend on a computer's hardware not doing what it should 20:54:32 there was a proof a while bag that you could remotely attack (I'm not sure which sort of attack) an RSA system that ran on a processor that did one multiplication incorrectly, FDIV-bug style 20:54:56 heh 20:55:44 although brownout sounds like you need physical access 20:56:27 or good timing 20:56:34 (I hear thunder in the distance) 20:56:43 maybe if you control the power plant first 20:57:31 oerjan: on a system with software-controlled overclocking, you can do it by overclocking the processor past its possible range 20:57:44 ooh 20:57:46 well, that either browns out the system or causes it to melt 20:58:03 depending on whether the power supply or the heatsinking fails first 21:02:18 -!- pikhq has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 21:02:56 -!- pikhq has joined. 21:03:40 Why yes, FUSE filesystem, I would absolutely love for you to read the entire contents of that file into memory. 21:03:59 I of course have enough memory for 12 gigabyte files in RAM. 21:04:19 I've somehow always felt that side-channel attacks are somehow unfair to poor widdle cryptographers. :/ 21:04:32 pikhq: 12GB of RAM isn't entirely implausible nowadays 21:05:17 scarf: Yes, but reading the entire contents of a 12GB file into memory is pretty dumb. 21:05:26 it depends on what you're doing 21:05:41 ... Filesystem. 21:05:54 heh 21:06:38 FUSE filesystems sometimes are a bit dumb; see, when you put it in userspace, you make it a lot easier to just write a messy filesystem, without having arcane skills; and then people do. 21:07:04 So I have discovered. 21:07:24 One would hope that at least the widely used ones (sshfs?) would be clever enough not to be stupid, though. 21:07:50 I was playing with fusecompress. Which apparently sucks for large files. 21:08:15 It appears to read an entire file into memory when you modify it. 21:08:29 -!- oklokok has joined. 21:09:13 -!- oklopol has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds). 21:09:28 Well, compression always makes random-access harder. 21:10:30 Yes, but there are fairly easy ways to make it not horrifying. 21:10:32 -!- sebbu2 has joined. 21:10:48 Even if you're not going to be clever: split the file into blocks. Compress the blocks seperately. 21:11:02 -!- hiato has quit (Quit: leaving). 21:11:11 Inefficient, but it's at least not going to swap you to death when you try to modify a file. 21:11:49 -!- sebbu has quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds). 21:11:49 -!- sebbu2 has changed nick to sebbu. 21:11:57 I love my magic objects and their magic 21:13:01 pikhq: It should do that already, I think. At least the fusecompress man page options list has: "Block size influences compression ratio. Bigger block size allows better compression ratio, but random access to data will be slower and memory requirements will be bigger." They must have just screwed it up somehow. 21:13:13 I think "magic" in this context might even be definable: putting together two functionalities which should be separate. 21:13:23 (Default size is 100 kB.) 21:13:24 Like, generating a form, and seeing if a form needs to be generated. 21:14:21 fizzie: ... Yeah, probably just screwed it up. 21:14:36 And I'm not going to look and see how to get it right. 21:15:03 I'm happy to report that at least dd'ing a 10-byte block at the middle of a three-gigabyte file over sshfs won't cause it to transfer three gigabytes over the network. 21:15:42 That's because sshfs is somewhat intelligent. 21:18:19 it lets you read data sanely so you won't suspect its plan to take over the world 21:24:21 ok, YouTube comments are driving me mad 21:24:26 the issue isn't the content, but chronological order 21:24:40 the /newest/ comments are at the top, except that older comments appear to be written as replies to newer ones 21:25:10 which appears to require either a whole load of the IRP-style "hello" "please say 'hello' immediately before this comment", or a deceptive sorting algorithm 21:25:53 scarf: time travelers from a future idiocracy? 21:25:55 scarf: I have never frickin understood them either. 21:26:09 scarf: It's deceptive. Not sure how it works. 21:26:12 oerjan: I like the concept 21:26:29 I understand that the newest is at the top, but even so, there is always someone who is replying to something I can't see, for whatever reason. 21:28:39 further theory: people in Youtube, whenever they see someone's replied to their question, repeat the question 21:28:41 for context 22:10:52 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined. 22:17:09 The Youtube comment system is probably designed to allow for stupid people. 22:17:41 -!- oklokok has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 22:18:45 i love augur 22:18:55 HAY GAIS 22:19:45 OHEY 22:20:48 -!- dev_squid has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 22:30:58 -!- kar8nga has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 22:31:02 -!- tombom_ has quit (Quit: Leaving). 22:33:14 -!- coppro has joined. 22:41:37 -!- dev_squid has joined. 22:46:42 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Later). 22:48:50 -!- MigoMipo has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 22:50:28 -!- alise has joined. 22:50:45 I am looking at Windows 7 Home Premium. 22:50:47 Challenge: Explain this. 22:52:39 this isn't your computer 22:52:51 the fact that you're using a webclient extends that impression 22:53:19 alise: you're gay. 22:53:27 problem solved 22:53:54 Gays see Windows 7 in their mind. 22:54:00 -!- alise_ has joined. 22:54:02 Whoopsie, 22:54:04 hi alise_ 22:54:05 *. 22:54:15 my guess is that you're using a computer other than your own 22:54:47 given that it's around 11pm where you live, you can't be at a cybercafe or anything like that 22:54:55 so you're probably at a friend's or relative's house 22:55:18 -!- alise has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 22:55:26 gay lover's 22:56:11 scarf: Incorrect. 22:56:24 Well, relative's house yes, other person's computer no. 22:56:28 hmm 22:56:38 new computer, and you haven't installed an OS on it? 22:56:56 other possibility's that your computer was dual-boot all along, and you're using the other side for some reason 22:57:12 I can understand you using win7 deliberately, but home premium would seem unlikely, and this would seem a weird time to experiment 22:58:27 Home Premium is pretty much the best Windows 7 version, Ultimate just has a few more stuffs 22:58:30 New computer, yes, bingo. 22:59:01 Rationale: Temporary residence as part of homelessness + going around to get things sorted + etc = lugging around an iMac is not ideal. 22:59:18 you have a laptop, then, probably a netbook 22:59:37 Not quite a netbook, they all had really ridiculously tiny 9" screens 22:59:44 wow, that's small 22:59:51 this netbook is about A4, which is still quite small 22:59:51 And the 11" laptops cost similar prices to the 13" ones 22:59:55 So it's just a small laptop 23:00:09 Apparently it gets 8 hours battery life, so... that would be nice, I guess, though I doubt it's quite that much. 23:00:22 mine's advertised as 8, it's around 5 in practice 23:00:29 what model is it? 23:00:35 Toshiba Satellite Tsomething. 23:00:49 wow, you may have exactly the same as mine, which is also a toshiba satellite 23:01:02 No, you probably have the 11" model. 23:01:05 Mine's its 13.3" big brother 23:01:12 fair enough 23:01:32 How are you meant to type without thumbing the trackpad? 23:01:36 I am rather unexperienced with laptops... 23:01:41 I can't manage that either 23:01:49 Neither can I. 23:01:50 I've just got really experienced at mitigating thumbpad errors 23:01:51 It's really annoying. 23:02:08 you can turn off tap-to-click on the thumbpad if you really care, that prevents thumbing it by mistake doing much 23:02:31 I just disable the pad entirely 23:02:32 Yes, but the button isn't the best, I think you'll agree. 23:02:35 A bit hard to reach too. 23:02:38 yep 23:02:44 my mouse is really unreliable atm 23:02:46 Deewiant: No nipple mouse, and using Windows without a mouse is suicidal. 23:02:53 so I'm using hold-primary-click-for-secondary-click 23:03:06 which means I can do pretty much anything with touchpad gestures 23:03:56 Apparently there's an eco mode which sacrifices performance for battery, which would be totally superfluous if they weren't presumably lying about the 8-hour life in the battery indicator. 23:04:12 Whoo, it's gone down to 4 hours already :-D 23:04:52 Why does it randomly decide to spin the fan up for no reason? 23:04:53 Who knows. 23:05:00 (Why does it come with so much junk installed?

You'll learn to love to hate to type. 23:09:56 actually, having that much memory compared to the CPU means it's unlikely to start swapping without lots of notice 23:10:07 why did you buy a laptop for use tomorrow? 23:10:08 Besides, I have no real qualms with UBuntu. 23:10:21 augur: because my life is fucked up right now and I can't lug about an iMac 23:10:31 whats goin on? 23:10:39 scarf: hmm... does yours have more than 1.30GHz of juice? 23:10:52 also, if you have a 32-bit OS it's feasible that you have >3 gigs and just don't know it 23:10:55 1.3 exactly 23:10:58 augur: Well, you know the situation with the unit, right? 23:11:02 no 23:11:03 and I have a 32-bit OS, but it was advertised with 3GB 23:11:10 You do, I told you. 23:11:24 Basically a mental health institution has me there the entire week apart from the -ends. 23:11:29 oh wait, you mean the "zomg the boy is crazy" thing 23:11:31 apart from this week? 23:11:39 But not right now, that's not the issue, the issue is that for various complicated reasons I don't have any permanent residence right now 23:11:41 or have you been going this week anyway, somehow? 23:11:56 I've sent my clone there 23:11:56 :p 23:12:12 can i get an alise_ clone? :X 23:12:12 alise_: this is the best time ever for you to be a pair of identical twins 23:12:31 augur: That's possibly the most disturbing thing you've ever said :P 23:12:38 cpressey: The keys are... so flat. 23:12:40 i try <3 23:12:42 alise_: So where the hell are you?

Probably grubby, at least) with something other than wet kitchen roll, there are little specks of it everywhere 14:34:34 Didn't really have anything else to use, though. 14:34:47 my laptop seems to be imposible to clean 14:34:47 scarf: ah, well I'll be using the trackpad 14:35:02 It's rather shiny, it's very easy to spot fingerprints ad stuff on it 14:35:17 But I just wanted to get the grubbiness off, just in case they didn't clean it very well before boxing it up 14:35:37 The trackpad on this is rather crappy, I keep side-of-trackpad scrolling by mistake 14:35:43 and it isn't very well ridged so i keep nudging it 14:36:21 alise: the stock windows is necessary to change most of the settings, like wireless killswitch, etc <-- huh 14:36:36 AnMaster: yes, it confuses me too 14:36:38 that is one advantage with thinkpad, things like that just work in linux 14:36:47 also, how do you use the mousepad/volume control? 14:36:54 I suspected Fn+ due to the colour but neither fn nor fn-switch work 14:36:56 erm 14:36:57 not mousepad 14:36:59 numberpad thing 14:37:03 volume control is fn-3, fn-4 14:37:14 scarf, also the kill switch on mine is definitely physical disconnect/connect-style 14:37:18 does it not give any feedback or something? 14:37:19 mouse pad is fn-f10 14:37:35 *numpad 14:37:36 scarf, since the bluetooth and wlan units are simply gone from lsusb/lspci after switching it 14:37:40 hmm 14:37:41 numberpad 14:37:42 not mousepad 14:37:45 7-0, u-p, j-;, m-/ 14:37:48 those ones 14:37:55 yep, you turn that on and off with fn-f10 14:38:01 also, I'm rather pleased with this keyboard layout 14:38:03 and the feedback is one of the lights on the front which is easy to miss 14:38:20 it doesn't seem to have any abominations against layout in it 14:38:34 I'd prefer shift was the rightmost key but it's not such a big deal 14:38:47 control, fn, super, alt, backquote, space at the bottom left is annoying, it's so easy to hit the wrong one 14:38:59 Backquote at the bottom left? 14:39:00 although a bigger screen for you may imply a less cramped layout 14:39:02 Not for me. 14:39:06 although note, that powertop has a tendency to do obnoxious things like turn your mouse off altogether to save power <-- for usb mouse maybe 14:39:06 I'm on UK layout though 14:39:09 For me the bottom row is: 14:39:10 yep, looks like bigger screen = bigger keyboard 14:39:12 AnMaster: yes 14:39:17 yes don't enable usb autosuspend 14:39:18 Ctrl, Fn, Win, Alt, space, alt gr, menu, ctrl, arrow keys 14:39:18 when it asks 14:39:42 Second to bottom is shift, \|, ..., /?, shift, pgup/pgdn vertically 14:39:51 alise: yours is very similar to mine, except mine puts  and \ to the right of the two alt keys respectively 14:39:57 leaving the spacebar rather small 14:39:58 (to be precise, it turns USB autosuspend on, and moving the mouse doesn't turn it back off again, so you have to unplug and replug the mouse to get it to work) <-- in a different physical port even 14:40:00 for me 14:40:18 Fn-f10 just enables the arrows 14:40:18 (after that the original port works again though) 14:40:21 I think it's f11 for numbers 14:40:35 yep 14:40:39 err, yes, f11 14:40:42 I said the wrong thing 14:40:49 enable arrows? 14:40:51 what? 14:41:05 don't you have arrow keys by default? 14:41:06 also, are you /sure/ fn-3/4 works? 14:41:08 AnMaster: u8ok for arrows 14:41:10 I see no feedback whatsoever 14:41:15 alise: it does on Ubuntu, I'm not sure on Windows 14:41:19 although, I think I bound those myself 14:41:20 AnMaster: numpad arrows 14:41:23 ah 14:41:29 maybe it just does it silently 14:41:36 system|preferences|keyboard shortcuts 14:41:49 what colour is yours? to go on to the most inane subject of this laptop 14:41:56 mine's red, that's all they had though 14:41:57 alise, does it have a separate numpad or such? Or why is a numpad even useful on a laptop 14:42:07 but it correctly detects fn-3 as XF86AudioLowerVolume, fn-4 as XF86AudioRaiseVolume 14:42:11 AnMaster: some programs require numpad 14:42:11 AnMaster: It's part of the alphanum part 14:42:16 hm 14:42:17 alise: mine's black, but the packaging said it was red 14:42:23 Also, for e.g. spreadsheet number entry 14:42:31 And if you like that way of movement 14:42:35 inc. home,end,pgup,pgdown etc 14:42:37 btw my thinkpad as NmLk on Fn-ScrLk 14:42:41 which is quite strange 14:42:49 scarf: lol 14:42:56 ScrLk is surely even more seldomly used? 14:42:57 It's not a shiny red which is nice 14:43:14 AnMaster: so you can scroll look on boot, I guess 14:43:23 where Fn doesn't work 14:43:27 scroll lock is actually kind-of useful in Excel 14:43:29 alise, hm I think fn works there 14:43:40 are you sure? 14:43:41 alise, since fn itself generates no key event 14:43:54 ooh, fn-f9 seems to be implemented in hardware 14:44:01 that's the key combo to turn the touchpad on/off 14:44:05 could be useful when typing 14:44:08 alise, and Fn-PgUp (turn on keyboard light thingy above screen) doesn't generate any key event (other Fn+* generates key events) 14:44:15 but that is one key event for fn+whatever 14:44:21 not one for fn and one for whatever 14:44:41 scarf: but I'm used to mouse-based OSs, so I'd be hitting it every few seconds 14:44:48 admittdly myabe not as much, because the trackpad is kind of crap 14:44:50 *maybe 14:44:58 so I'll probably adapt 14:44:58 *admittedly 14:45:14 Its complete silence most of the time freaks me out to no end 14:45:19 scarf, alas, that is one thing annoying me, there is a turn touchpad off thingy for mine. But under linux that disables touchpad, touchpad buttons, and *trackpoint buttons* 14:45:23 TALK TO ME COMPUTER 14:45:28 only the trackpoint itself is left enabled 14:45:33 making it completely useless 14:45:42 (I want to have the trackpoint buttons left enabled of course! 14:45:45 ) 14:45:49 Bind'em to some key combo :P 14:45:59 AnMaster: you use it while typing, to avoid clicking by mistake 14:46:20 scarf, yes but hitting the buttons for the trackpoint is rather hard 14:46:45 scarf, the issue I have is "palm on touchpad" 14:46:53 not "palm on trackpoint buttons" 14:47:03 for me, it's the base of the thumb 14:47:24 well, yes, base of thumb/palm, somewhat the overlap 14:47:28 scarf: I like how there's a ridge on the caps lock key, except the keys are so flat anyway that it doesn't stop any mistakes whatsoever 14:47:29 I'm surprised by how thin and light this thing is for the price 14:47:30 Probably as thin as a MacBook 14:47:45 scarf, fiddling with the palm detection setting in the synaptics config tool helped somewhat 14:48:08 alise: yes, heh 14:48:21 are you planning to swap caps lock and control? I haven't, maybe I should 14:48:23 alise, that ridge: same on mine 14:48:23 All in all I'm rather happy with my first venture into laptop-land, and PC-laptop-land at that. 14:48:55 alise, at least the windows key is quite flat 14:48:56 scarf: Why does every single key have a tiny ridge, I wonder? 14:48:57 I might just disable caps lock entirely 14:48:58 AnMaster: Yes, but even moreso on this laptop: The key travel is <10mm 14:48:59 I'm sure 14:48:59 More like 5? 14:49:01 and not as horrible as on desktop keyboards 14:49:06 Totally flat here. 14:49:07 alise, ah... 14:49:36 alise: probably to make them easier to separate after manufacturing them 14:49:41 Apparently this thing is designed for the thin/light/battery sort of market 14:49:43 So it's rather flat all over 14:49:55 and I'm used to a key travel that small; it feels like a lot of effort to push keys on a desktop 14:50:03 you can still feel the travel, even though it's a small one 14:50:40 alise, the diff here is maybe 1-2 mm for the ridge thingy. Key travel is... uh about twice the height of the key cap itself. That is when I press down the key fully, the top of it is roughly at the same level as the lower edge of the key caps around it 14:50:42 Yes, but I've used a scissor-switch board and even that had more key travel 14:50:46 (It was almost flat itself) 14:50:50 which would make it 5 mm maybe? 14:50:50 even the other laptops I tried had much more travel 14:50:52 I'm not complaining; it's just weird. 14:50:58 maybe 6-7? 14:51:18 in any case, it is quite okay to type on if you are used to a full size pc keyboard 14:51:38 -!- kar8nga has joined. 14:51:47 This thing doesn't even travel the depth of the very thin keycaps 14:51:49 *keycap 14:51:51 I bet any less travel and you couldnt 14:51:53 make it reliable 14:52:03 heh 14:52:43 alise, are the main area of the keys (alphanumeric, shift, enter, backspace, tab, caps lock) "full sized"? 14:52:58 well apart from height of course 14:53:15 -!- oklopol has joined. 14:53:42 also I don't get how anyone can live with less than 15" on a laptop that is used for extended periods... 14:53:51 I mean, 15" is somewhat cramped 14:55:16 The screen on this thing is very nice despite being glossy. 14:55:16 I'm using it in sunlight now and it's completely legible 14:55:49 laptop screens tend to work rather nicely in sunlight, I find 14:56:02 AnMaster: I use 11", and have for months 14:56:41 scarf, I know 14:56:56 * AnMaster considers a toughbook 14:57:06 of course it wouldn't be really nice to use 14:57:11 but it would last forever 14:59:38 -!- alise has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 15:02:46 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit (*.net *.split). 15:08:12 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined. 15:08:37 -!- jcp has joined. 15:24:27 -!- Yda-84 has joined. 15:25:01 O:-) 15:25:05 -!- Yda-84 has left (?). 15:31:08 -!- cbrowne has quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds). 15:41:09 -!- cpressey has joined. 15:44:53 -!- alise has joined. 15:45:08 IRCing from inside a taxi: The most unreliable activity ever. 15:45:18 I wonder if this connection is even still working after the five seconds I've ben connectd. 15:45:21 *been, *connected 15:45:25 Someone pong. 15:45:30 alise pong 15:45:34 Woot. 15:46:14 Typing is not the easiest thing 15:47:25 Yay!

Always use it on a sturdy table 16:10:34 anyway, he was on webchat, and therefore presumably Windows, and therefore using the autopark 16:11:06 scarf, I guess that wasn't meant as a far fetched joke? 16:11:12 no 16:11:15 (autopark -> automobile park) 16:11:16 I was being serious 16:11:18 (and in a taxi) 16:11:35 no pun intended; in fact, even after your explanation, I don't think there was a pun there 16:11:38 anyone care to look at this and then provide some feedback as to how I'd make this language more self-complete, that is, you should be able to emulate (mostly) an arbitrary piece of the language with other pieces. that means you cant natively have if's, while's and so on, but I'm stuck on argument parsing to methods (though tecnically anonymous methods need not be there and would solve my problem) 16:11:45 http://dpaste.com/168356/ 16:11:46 scarf, very far fetched one 16:12:10 * scarf looks 16:12:28 -!- MizardX has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds). 16:12:47 -!- MizardX- has changed nick to MizardX. 16:13:36 oh, and if you do look, ignore the code at the end, as that all depends on how arguments are parsed (if at all) 16:13:50 hiato: wow, that's a confusing language 16:13:59 :P 16:14:04 I applaud you for not just making more BF-derivatives, like most people do 16:14:17 I'll be happy to shed some light though 16:14:19 thanks :) 16:14:22 * MissPiggy made one hates ipile 16:16:15 hiato, for cell.(Q) better specify charset 16:16:45 hiato, or would it use the native one? Say EBCDIC on such a machine? 16:17:31 AnMaster: I'm not sure I understand what you mean? In this case, cell.(Q) is using Q as a literal, base 10 number 16:17:40 cell.X, however, could be confusing 16:17:50 hiato, so how does " "$()" is equivalent to 2369577 through this system" work? 16:17:57 hiato, how is that encoded? 16:17:59 ASCII? 16:18:04 Heh, figured it was vague 16:18:04 yep 16:18:08 if so that should be explicitly mentioned 16:18:20 encode as ASCII, then take those bytes as a standard number 16:18:27 ok, thanks, will mark that 16:18:33 hiato, why not UTF-8? 16:18:55 hiato, otherwise how would you encode a cell named å←→µ 16:19:00 For simplicity, really, but there is no real reason. Though, I guess it will also inflate the nubmers significantly 16:19:04 true, fair enough 16:19:27 hiato, for UTF-8, the lower 127 ASCII bytes would encode the same way 16:19:47 only some other things, such as that example would encode larger 16:19:48 though the argument could go that å##µ is merely a sequence of bytes that when grouped to the nearest 8 bits, would still yield a number that is unique for that string 16:19:52 wait 16:19:57 hm 16:20:01 it would work in fact 16:20:12 hiato, that wasn't ## in the middle 16:20:14 that was like: 16:20:16 <--> 16:20:33 I know, but I forget what key makes those arrows :P 16:20:51 and I'm currently not using a utf8 charset in xterm 16:20:59 hiato, AltGr+[yUui] 16:21:26 Ah, right 16:21:50 (though still produces a #) 16:21:57 hiato, yet you found å without iussues, which I thought was hard to type outside Scandinavia plus a few countries 16:23:09 Colemak ;) 16:23:26 mhm 16:24:43 as for the language itself, while handy, do you think that the ability to parse Message -> Anonymous Method -> Destination is needed? 16:25:03 hiato, what does that do 16:25:08 I haven't read the whole spec 16:25:12 if so, how would I implement a non-pattern matching scheme that can be replicatedwith non-anonymouse methods 16:25:17 due to being somewhat tired 16:25:59 right, "a b c" sends message "a" to cell or method "b" and then stores the result (or partial result, or whatever) in cell "c" 16:26:12 hiato, what about threads 16:26:22 hiato, you can do rather nice concurrency with message passing 16:26:31 (see for example the non-esolang erlang) 16:26:58 (which I used for more than one esolang interpreter) 16:26:58 You do like this: $su -> # rm -f /* 16:27:03 hiato: coincidentally, trying to make pattern matching work with anonymous (unnamed) object is currently what I'm thinking about 16:27:19 cpressey, wrt. befunge-111? 16:27:21 I mean... it needs a name, so the pattern can match it, right? 16:27:28 Frustrating :) 16:27:34 AnMaster: but seriously, I guess I could put it in, but it's besides the point 16:27:40 cpressey: yeah, my predicament exactly 16:27:41 AnMaster: no. 16:27:45 if you find a way, let me know 16:27:58 hiato, just a suggestion, I don't know how well it would fit into things 16:28:00 No patterns in Befunge-111... 16:28:22 cpressey, true. Unless someone goes and spec PATS or something 16:28:41 (pattern matching befunge sounds horrible) 16:28:53 well, there is REXP for posix extended regex 16:29:00 and PCRE sounds like a nice fingerprint name I guess 16:29:06 AnMaster: right, sure, I'm always open to suggestions, but before I make this super complex, I need to work out the message parsing 16:29:19 hiato, right 16:31:30 on the complete flip side, I've also come up with another system that is way way easier. It's ASM like, but only has the commands: XOR, SHR, SHL, JMP. No conditional jumps, no add and friends, but I suspect it's turing complete. Oh, and it only has four registers and can only operate on two bits at a time 16:32:22 is the PC memory-mapped? 16:32:33 oh, no, that's what JMP's for 16:32:38 http://dpaste.com/168372/ 16:32:40 but presumably the program itself is memory-mapped 16:32:44 nope 16:32:57 hiato: have you seen the various OISCs? 16:32:59 no self-modification 16:33:02 scarf: yep 16:33:08 but this is unlike them in every way 16:33:12 there is no complex syntax 16:33:17 or conditional logic 16:33:28 or any logic except for XOR (which is not universal) 16:34:03 but, through careful use of shifts and xors (and the clever trick of treating the registers as stacks), you can do all of what you need (I guess) 16:35:10 hiato: ah, JMP is the unconditional computed jump, Malbolge-style 16:35:57 Er, right 16:35:59 yes 16:36:25 the interesting thing is how to make it conditional 16:36:51 "For example, "J 0,b" will 16:36:52 jump back precisely one insruction iff. the IP is odd, otherwise 16:36:52 forward one if the IP is even. You have been warned. 16:37:11 makes it kind of fun, when using XOR's instead of fixed offsets 16:37:23 it's possible to get by without any conditional jumps at all in a language 16:37:33 by messing with arithmetic 16:37:41 really? 16:37:46 -!- dev_squid has joined. 16:38:29 yep; the idea is, say you have a /lot/ of variables 16:38:32 do you have an example? but, in this case, there is no way of doing anything except applying various XOR masks, which, in this case suggest some ofrm of universitatility for XOR 16:38:45 right 16:39:06 then whenever you would do something, instead of b=a, you do something along the lines of b+=(a-b)*x 16:39:19 where you can turn the command on and off by messing with the value of x 16:39:38 that's the general principle; it would be interesting to see how few commands you can get away with 16:39:43 Right, but in essence you then need to compute all posibilites and "filter" them 16:39:47 yes 16:40:17 also, if it turned out that your language was TC without computed jumps, you wouldn't need SHR either 16:40:23 as instead, you could shift every other variable to the left 16:40:31 and just ignore the bottom bit for the rest of the program 16:40:35 as no command would care 16:40:42 I see what you're saying 16:40:49 which would be a godsend 16:41:11 NAND is probably better than XOR for that sort of thing, as you can implement any other logical operation in terms of it 16:41:29 Yeah, I knew that one, but that's what I wanted to avoid 16:41:35 but I'm not sure if you could get by with just four variables then 16:41:38 XOR is known to not be universal 16:41:46 yep 16:41:58 bceause it can't distinguish between 0 and 1 16:42:05 but with (really) two other commands and just four (or in essence) two variables, it would be enough 16:42:17 right 16:43:19 well actually, going back, because it only operates on the bottom two bits, I would need to keep shr 16:44:36 hmm, yes 16:44:39 -!- dev_squid has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 16:44:46 and going back further, do you think it would be possible to write a programme in your a*(maybe 0) language that, without needing to evaluate all possibilities, could then write the bit that did need to? 16:44:53 Also, in certain models of computation, XOR is the most complex function possible 16:45:02 (monotone circuits) 16:45:16 cpressey: it's annoying to implement even in hardware 16:45:22 cpressey: well, I have it down for three transistors, two diodes and one resistor 16:45:31 there's a reason people talk about NAND rather than NOR as universal, which is that you can do NAND with just the one transistor 16:45:46 hiato: DTL is pretty much an abandoned logic format nowadays 16:45:49 Mixing transistors and diodes -- nice. 16:45:54 not in my world :) 16:46:04 I can't remember why, but it was suboptimal somehow 16:46:18 I imagine it takes a bit more power to drive 16:46:21 yeah 16:46:24 was jsut about to say 16:46:52 as well as running into issues with a negative bias vs ground 16:47:11 oh, it's slower, takes up more silicon space, and requires three power rails 16:47:19 there we are 16:47:25 the last isn't quite an idea-killer, but the first two are 16:47:37 but, for a hobby project, i cant see the fuss 16:47:54 what does DTL stand for? 16:48:02 (which, might I add, is what SHI-3 is for, I wanted to build a RISC cpu) 16:48:10 Diode-Transistor Logic 16:48:20 ah 16:48:57 -!- hiato has quit (Quit: Lost terminal). 16:49:06 hmm, it seems practical NAND gates need at least two transistors 16:50:01 oh?

16:55:08 hiato: it means that the terminal that the client was running in closed, or it thought it did 16:55:15 it's likely the client's response to a SIGHUP 16:58:14 ah, right, thanks 16:58:45 MissPiggy: noone needs an ifile.it account 16:59:06 augur, I made one 16:59:11 why?

Too heavy and too melancholic 18:14:07 Then I'm sure you hate my music :P 18:14:21 Gregor, not really, yours is somewhat technically interesting 18:14:27 Sibelius is not 18:14:35 Gregor, if it wasn 18:14:58 wasn't* for the technical interesting parts of Liszt and Paganini I wouldn't really like those 18:15:02 as it is, I do like them 18:15:19 same reason i like your mom 18:15:31 ... wow. 18:15:43 lament, I can't think of any snappy reply to that one... 18:16:01 "Your mom is technically interesting" is ... maybe not an insult? Idonno. 18:16:18 Gregor, I have no clue 18:16:23 I don't like it either way I think 18:16:25 For the same reasons that I'm not a fan of his music, he makes a good subject for an Orchestra Hero game or whatever 18:16:44 cpressey, yeah, I would hate to see Kraus or Mozart subjected to that 18:16:44 cpressey: Now that's actually a compelling argument ... 18:16:49 Or Vivaldi 18:17:08 Gregor, so do you like Sibelius or not? 18:17:52 I am a neutral-to-moderate fan of Sibelius. His music is not amongst the somewhat small selection I listen to regularly, because I don't like him enough for that, but he's well over the dislike line. 18:18:32 Can't a guy have neutral opinions around here? P 18:18:33 *:P 18:19:26 maybe he can. 18:19:41 but then again, maybe not. It doesn't really matter. 18:19:47 imo 18:19:49 -!- Gregor has set topic: "Gwandocu (n): Extremely strong evidence, far beyond a reasonable doubt." | alise sighting counter currently out of sequence | http://tunes.org/~nef/logs/esoteric/?C=M;O=D. 18:20:12 Gregor, what about Schönberg? 18:20:17 it sounds like the thing you would like 18:20:34 I don't have a mental picture of his music off-hand, so Idonno. 18:20:47 And there is no .rg as far as I know anyway ;) 18:20:49 Gregor, disharmonic 18:21:00 Gregor, 12 tone scale and all that 18:21:24 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve-tone_technique 18:21:53 pdqba.ch is available :P 18:22:03 Gregor, yeargh 18:22:11 Gregor, is there .rt? 18:22:16 moza.rt 18:22:21 vival.di? 18:22:22 Already checked. 18:22:27 Gregor, hay.dn? 18:22:40 Gregor, hand.el? 18:22:40 Besides, these names are all too famous, they'd certainly have been bought. 18:23:08 Also, most national domains have restrictions with regards to citizenship :P 18:23:21 Which has the amusing effect that a Finn can't actually own the domain sibeli.us :P 18:23:28 kra.us (please don't do something bad with it. Joseph Martin Kraus is my all time favourite composer!) 18:23:46 Gregor, ^ 18:23:53 AnMaster: Squatted 18:24:01 mhm 18:26:07 Gregor, beethov.en? 18:26:11 is that a valid tld? 18:26:34 Doesn't eem to be. 18:26:37 *seem 18:26:42 poser.com 18:26:45 They would probably avoid it because people would think it was England. 18:26:49 Gregor, schuma.nn ! 18:26:57 Gregor, I really think his music is boring 18:27:09 The great nation of Nnonninnonn 18:27:11 sure, quite okay, but nothing really interesting 18:27:11 over here in England, we know that England doesn't have a TLD to itself 18:27:24 Gregor, it could be Netherlands or something... 18:27:29 Because England wurves Scotland, Wales and North Ireland so much :P 18:27:43 Also Gibraltar and the Island of Mann if I recall 18:28:30 Nope, wrong on all regards :P 18:28:34 Gregor, what about those two small islands in the English channel? 18:28:37 Spelling, TLD, membership in the UK :P 18:28:47 .ski? or .ki? 18:29:05 okay .ski would be a nice TLD 18:29:10 The only three-letter TLDs are the US ones and the generic ones, so you'd know it if it existed :P 18:29:15 imagine: imperative.ski 18:29:20 XD 18:29:24 bugger 18:29:33 hiato, ? 18:29:42 AnMaster, ? 18:29:50 why bugger 18:30:00 hiato, you gave us a great idea in the TLD discussion 18:30:00 I wanted tchaikov.ski 18:30:03 ah 18:30:03 (yaeh, I know) 18:30:04 :/ 18:30:25 or ru.ski 18:30:29 har 18:31:09 Gregor, btw .nu fills the same function in Sweden as .to does in English speaking countries (not exact same meaning, but equal large interest in it) 18:31:19 (sv:nu = en:now) 18:31:40 net means no in russian 18:31:54 mhm 18:31:55 several sites use that, like "no cockroaches" and "no beer" 18:32:23 I'm sure it's spelled differently though, isn't it pronounced "nyet"? 18:32:58 and, in Afrikaans/Dutch(German?) net means only 18:33:03 nʲet in IPA, net in translit 18:33:09 right 18:33:26 er, the vowel in IPA is wrong i'm sure, i don't really know it 18:33:59 well, neither do I, so you're right no matter what 18:34:55 AnMaster: it must be said that I only got the .ski joke now, wow, completely unintended on my behalf :P 18:35:26 heh 18:35:33 .ki are$900/year 18:35:36 but nicely played 18:35:51 * hiato is speechless, but can still make the occasional /me 18:36:00 I wonder what imperative SKI calculus would be like though 18:36:18 ais523, sounds like something for you to design ^ 18:36:20 ;) 18:36:44 maybe 18:36:49 heh, a = s k k "hello" 18:36:50 print a 18:36:55 SKI calculus can be pretty imperative as-is, though 18:36:58 fairly pointless 18:37:14 ais523, hm. What about imperative lambda calculus then? 18:37:25 sa,e 18:37:26 *same 18:37:28 python 18:37:32 Imperative haskell would of course beat most things to "bad idea of year" 18:37:41 hiato, declarative python! 18:37:44 you can compile imperative to haskell easily 18:37:51 ais523, hm 18:37:51 if you couldn't, it wouldn't really be powerful enough to be useful 18:38:02 AnMaster: as if it wasn't chock full of similarly bad ideas :P 18:38:03 admittedly, it usually isn't the best way to write it, but you can if you want to 18:38:14 hiato, I don't think going 18:38:27 *going "up" the scale is wrong 18:38:32 well it could be 18:38:46 but not necessarily so 18:38:55 Heh, [citation needed] 18:39:01 ;) 18:40:04 huh? 18:40:39 Never mind, to much wiki for meh brains today 18:40:49 hiato, of course it would need proper language support. And not be like that "lambdas in C" hack that pikhq did 18:40:55 pikhq, link to it now again? 18:42:18 Lambdas in C? Coincidentally, I have just discovered a marvellous little proof that no god can exist, written in CLambda, which this magin is too narrow to contain 18:42:37 hiato, it was done with some macros + gnu extensions 18:42:49 hiato, closures too btw 18:43:15 iirc it used two gcc extensions: nested functions and statement expressions 18:43:20 I cannot believe waht I'm hearing 18:43:42 hiato, then wait for pikhq to get here, he is in some US timezone 18:43:47 (iirc) 18:43:50 but, I take it, strict evaluation 18:44:03 hiato, ? 18:44:46 as in, writing any lambda expression would be evaluated immeditaely/reduced, irrespecive of whether it was further refernced or applied? 18:45:14 * hiato asks that all further typos be excused 18:45:37 as the way I see it, it's a macro, so it just reduced to some convoluted mess of C code that would execute 18:45:44 hiato, I don't know 18:45:45 AnMaster: Urgh. No no no no. 18:45:51 pikhq, why not? I want to see it 18:45:58 so do I 18:46:01 It's a pain to paste. 18:46:12 pikhq, why not just push a hg repo or whatever with it 18:46:14 somewhere 18:46:18 No hosting. 18:46:22 So send meh ur computerz thro teh interwebz 18:46:29 pikhq, bzr + launchpad? ;P 18:46:41 github is free for minor stuff, no? 18:46:45 Just a sec while I tar it up. 18:46:50 yaya 18:46:50 hiato, but that requires git -_- 18:47:01 Am I missing something? 18:47:31 hiato, yes perhaps: that I think git is the worst dvcs when it comes to user interface. 18:47:38 ah, so this is one of those places that hg >> bza >> svn >> cvs == True 18:47:44 bzr is just so much easier to use 18:47:48 hiato, personally I'm a bzr fan 18:47:53 and what on earth is bza? 18:47:53 darcs? 18:47:58 hiato, try ais523 for that 18:47:59 *bzr 18:48:10 I must say I like hg 18:48:12 hiato, he uses darcs for c-intercal 18:48:15 hiato, hg isn't too bad 18:48:27 it is just git that I have major trouble with 18:48:29 wow, what an elaborate way to waste time 18:48:36 fair enough 18:48:37 hiato, what is? 18:48:42 I'm a darcs fan 18:48:48 darcs <- c-intercal 18:48:51 hiato, oh and rcs. But I rarely run into it 18:48:51 http://filebin.ca/septw/ski.tar.gz 18:48:56 rcs? 18:48:59 There's my SKI interpreter. 18:49:11 it even manages to beat bzr at user interface, and the model is a lot better 18:49:12 Compile with gcc *.c -lgc 18:49:14 I like it too ais523, but hg wins over for me 18:49:14 pikhq, why not compile SKI to C with it? 18:49:24 pikhq, using just a simple converter 18:49:26 Ohoho, interperter? 18:49:26 AnMaster: Didn't bother is all. 18:49:38 -!- MaXo2 has joined. 18:49:57 * AnMaster stores that in ~/irc/esoteric/pikhq 18:50:08 Oh, right. I had been working on making it into a proper Lazy K interpreter. 18:50:19 hiato, lambda.h is the file you want to read 18:50:29 iirc 18:50:35 Yeah. 18:50:41 and closure.h 18:50:48 hm 18:50:49 no 18:51:00 pikhq, what is xgc.h? 18:51:09 so pikhq, you implement lambda and ski? 18:51:15 ah, I was reading main 18:51:17 pikhq, and why does it contain nohup.out? 18:51:18 ...

Warnings. 18:56:11 Though I'm pretty sure he has redundancy going there. 18:56:18 pikhq, not for old gcc versions 18:56:24 pikhq, I support down to gcc 3.4 18:56:32 why? 18:56:41 pikhq, it checks which ones are supported by the compiler 18:56:45 Mmm. 18:56:49 Maybe I should add -Wextra to cplof's test case :P 18:56:52 pikhq, yes this yeilds some redundancy, but nothing to worry about 18:57:55 Gregor, I would strongly recommend at least -pedantic -Wall -Wextra -Wformat=2 -Wwrite-strings 18:58:34 Gregor, defines include: -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600 18:59:33 Gregor, I'm unlikely to switch to POSIX 2008 yet 18:59:42 but that might happen before I drop gcc 3.4 support 19:01:01 -Wextra includes warnings for unused PARAMETERS 19:01:04 That's completely stupid 19:01:08 Gregor, no 19:01:11 I find that useful 19:01:25 I write dozens of functions that are compatible with a single interface. 19:01:26 Gregor, I use an attribute for the three or so cases where I actually want it to be unused 19:01:36 Gregor, well add -Wno-unused-parameters then 19:01:38 (iirc) 19:01:45 (not sure about the exact spelling) 19:01:53 (check your local man gcc) 19:02:07 I'm gonna stick with -Wall -Werror -ansi -pedantic :P 19:02:15 Incidentally, I also compile with OpenWatcom for 32-bit DOS. 19:02:22 Gregor, -Wwrite-strings! 19:02:34 Gregor, that makes sure you don't do things like: 19:02:35 I don't even use any bloody strings :P 19:02:40 char* foo = "bar"; 19:02:46 mkstemp(foo); 19:03:03 (you need to have it writable for there) 19:03:14 (besides, proper const usage helps the optimiser) 19:05:06 why? <-- why what? 19:05:37 In actuality, the real problem with -Wwrite-strings for cplof is that I cast everything into unsigned char *, and casting away constness explicitly is presumably still considered "OK" 19:05:52 Gregor, there is another warning for that 19:06:03 Gregor, -Wcast-qual I think 19:07:22 Gregor, anyway I find that set of warnings very nice for cfunge. 19:08:01 AnMaster: never mind, it was a way back, and thanks to the wonders of lag, in the wrong place 19:08:24 * Ping reply from hiato: 2.20 second(s) <-- bad, but not excessively so 19:11:53 Heh, nice touch 19:12:04 -!- dev_squid has joined. 19:12:06 http://codu.org/music/op12/GRegor-op12-wipp2.ogg , lest I never mentioned it here >_> 19:13:15 AnMaster: it was for pikhq, when he said the definition could break at any time, and my log shows: 20:52 < pikhq> Also, note that the ..... 20:53 < hiato> why? 19:13:21 so within the margin of error :P 19:14:15 Hi guys. 19:14:37 Gregor, "wipp"? 19:14:43 Greetings from beyond the /dev/null 19:14:44 Work In Progress Preview 19:15:02 Gregor, should name it op12.-2 or such 19:15:08 (clc-intercal style) 19:15:29 My original naming convention was beta 1, beta 2 etc, but somebody pointed out justly that that's a bit computery for music :P 19:15:40 hiato, aargh did someone fill the bit bucket now again? 19:15:43 Especially for music which is relatively acoustic. 19:16:11 Gregor, I don't see anything wrong with it 19:16:21 Yeah, but you're a person on #esoteric :P 19:16:59 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta#Common_uses <-- template fail 19:17:01 -_- 19:17:32 AnMaster: That template is in beta. 19:18:33 augh 19:19:07 AnMaster: what does that mean? 19:22:20 hiato, what bit? 19:22:25 "augh"? 19:22:42 heh, did someone fill the bit bucket now again? 19:23:03 hiato, oh that. ask ais523 he can explain it and I'm somewhat busy 19:23:08 s/,/"/ and s//"/ 19:23:21 ah, right 19:23:21 or see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bit_bucket 19:23:47 kthnx,srydood.srsly 19:26:19 Gregor, I like that op12-wipp2 around 10:58-11:30 especially! 19:26:35 * AnMaster hasn't finished listening to it yet 19:28:06 Gregor: what do you compose with? 19:28:27 Gregor, is this recorded or synthed? 19:28:33 if synthed, what soundfont 19:28:48 hiato, unless I misremember: rosegarden 19:29:06 Right 19:29:15 I must be the only kiddy who plays with lmms 19:29:20 -!- dev_squid has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds). 19:29:28 hiato, what is lmms? 19:29:39 hiato, rosegarden is FOSS in case you didn't know 19:30:00 Naah, I did.

I just can't stand square waves 19:48:53 sinus for me please 19:48:56 ah, right 19:49:09 soory, I tend to like them actually 19:49:12 in fact, quite a bit 19:49:28 but, I have very instrumenty stuff too, just decided to experiment 19:50:04 hiato, I'm perfectly fine with things like SID when it doesn't try to sound much more than what it is 19:50:25 hiato, I like classical music and some baroque 19:50:31 mostly viola/violin music 19:50:35 some other too 19:51:04 Ok, fair enough. Well, to be honest the square wave you hate so much I bent out of a SID emulator 19:51:07 (Vivaldi is probably number two all time favourite after Kraus) 19:51:24 hiato, sure, but C64 games tend to not use it quite like that 19:51:30 right, well, I do appreciate the odd violin piece, but I'm much more orchestral 19:51:51 hiato, chamber music for me :) 19:51:55 medelhsonn etc 19:52:00 Borodiiiiiiin! 19:52:01 Oh noes! not chamber music 19:52:05 BORODIIIIIIIIIIIN 19:52:06 yugh 19:52:07 hiato, why not? 19:52:36 Gregor, why.... 19:52:45 Because Borodin is awesome? 19:52:50 Kraus! 19:52:54 BORODIN! 19:52:55 I just cant stand it.

Prokofiev! 19:53:11 He was a true genius 19:53:13 AnMaster: A bit, not much, but it's been a while :P 19:53:20 Balakirev! Rimsky-Korsakov! 19:53:36 * pikhq adds Led Zeppelin to the discussion 19:53:38 Gregor has good taste 19:53:40 hiato, Gregor: all the ones you mention (up until Gregor's last line) are fairly well known ones 19:53:51 Kraus is sadly not so well known 19:54:19 yes 19:54:21 buy the complete set from your local Naxos branch today! 19:54:42 -!- dougx has joined. 19:54:43 I think Rimsky-Korsokov was used as a curse word in at least the Finnish translation of Bored of the Rings. 19:54:50 hiato, or at least listen to his C sharp minor sinfonia on youtube 19:54:56 hiato, movement 3 especially 19:55:03 that is the best music I ever listened to 19:55:07 but I also like holst 19:55:15 and on second place comes third movement from Vivaldi's summer 19:55:19 when played fast 19:55:21 goddamn delayed comment 19:55:24 * Sgeo can't believe he's actually reorganizing his bookmarks 19:55:32 Holst??? 19:55:35 Pfff 19:55:39 Nine-hit wonder. 19:55:57 Swap him out for Elgar. 19:55:59 haha 19:56:06 Now Elgar is quite okay to listen to 19:56:14 but not one of the things that you actually go "wow" over 19:56:17 Haven't heard enough of him to decide -> indifference 19:56:19 * Sgeo is in love with Chrome's bookmark manager 19:56:34 while Kraus and Vivaldi are in the "wow, wow, wow" category 19:56:59 PACHELBEL 19:57:03 *stabs self* 19:57:09 aargh stop talking about music 19:57:12 Gregor, yes, except that music is badly overused 19:57:15 Thank you for saving me the effort, Gregor 19:57:17 Now, I forget what this guy's name was, but he did the Gymnopédie and Gnossienne and I love it 19:57:22 lament, there is esolang music too 19:57:27 hiato: Satie 19:57:29 hiato, Satie? 19:57:30 <3 Satie 19:57:33 -!- dev_squid has joined. 19:57:33 yes! 19:57:35 AnMaster: aaargh 19:57:37 hiato, I quite like Satie 19:57:54 lament, there is some esolangs that takes midi as input iirc 19:58:05 Prokofiev is my absolute favorite. 19:58:13 Hm, why do I have a link to a page on /b/ in here? Did I forget that /b/ links tend to die? 19:58:38 cpressey, from what I remember, it is quite... heavy and... "pompöst" (no clue what this is in English) 19:58:41 and, ofc, who can deny the schindlers list theme 19:58:46 aaaargh 19:58:57 AnMaster: "Pompous" 19:59:03 (Presumably) 19:59:07 Gregor, ah 19:59:09 well yeah 19:59:12 satie can go suck it, fuck you for writing music without bar lines 19:59:16 same goes for Borodin 19:59:19 what a jerk really 19:59:27 and *definitely* for Sibelius 19:59:51 OK, how 'bout Ravel then hyuk hyuk 19:59:53 Sibelius sounds like an old man wandering around a house with no idea what he's looking for. 19:59:57 Gregor, the Swedish word has a negative connotation 20:00:07 Gregor, does the English "Pompous" have that? 20:00:11 AnMaster: The English word has negative connotation. 20:00:12 Gregor: Ravel ftw! too bad he only had one real hit 20:00:14 right 20:00:15 and bizet 20:00:21 Gregor, Ravel is all right 20:00:24 but also overplayed 20:00:28 and not balancedly so 20:00:28 Bizet only had one opera worth of hits :P 20:00:37 I quite like some of Ravel's other music 20:00:40 Quality>quantity 20:00:45 also Bizet just wrote operas didn't he? 20:00:56 at least I hardly remember what he wrote 20:01:00 and I don't like operas 20:01:09 (guess if I hate or hate wagner?) 20:01:13 AnMaster: "Pompous" means like "arrogant" -- I don't think of Prokofiev's music as anything like that. 20:01:18 AnMaster, yes, he wrote an opera, and it is good :P 20:01:22 lament, did Satie really do that? 20:01:37 "rimsky-korsikov": http://pastebin.com/qWERDPKM 20:01:42 cpressey, hm. Most russian music sound like that to be 20:01:49 hiato, I just don't like operas! 20:01:55 Mmmm, pompous doesn't /quite/ mean arrogant, but yeah, similar. 20:01:58 hiato, I dislike the singing 20:02:04 And I can see what AnMaster is saying about pompousness in Russian music. 20:02:16 But Russian music is all awesomesauce :P 20:02:17 AnMaster: but that is the point 20:02:18 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0AkO2OTfjA 20:02:23 "rimsky-korsikov": http://pastebin.com/qWERDPKM <-- ? 20:02:39 Gregor: Yeah! I ... er, have ... the red army chior double cd 20:02:52 AnMaster: Just a random act of quotation. 20:03:00 hiato, I have something like that on LP I think 20:03:03 somewhere 20:03:10 didn't buy it myself 20:03:21 and it's brilliant 20:03:30 Well, *of* Russian music, Prokofiev is like the least pompous, I think. 20:03:34 Argh, I was going to mention that composer who was quite popular until everybody started associating him with Nazi Germany, and now his music is super-underplayed, but I can't remember his name ... 20:03:46 hitler? 20:03:54 hiato, well, their rendition of the Internationale is quite impressive! 20:03:57 gah, the SCO court cases are setting my mind on the verge of exploding 20:03:58 (sp?) 20:04:00 Hitler was a fan of his. 20:04:03 then, you get the wonders of Monti in his one favourable piece 20:04:13 Well, *of* Russian music, Prokofiev is like the least pompous, I think. <-- and it is still too much so for me 20:04:21 I prefer not at all pompous music 20:04:35 cpressey, probably why I so much strongly prefer chamber music 20:04:48 AnMaster: Internationale from them moved me the first time I heard it 20:04:50 AnMaster: Understandable. Well, Vivaldi is also in my Top Ten. 20:04:56 full orchestra somehow tends to make music more easily pompous... 20:05:11 you cannot say that tchaikovsky was pompous 20:05:11 hiato, hm 20:05:14 that is a crime 20:05:16 hiato, I do say that 20:05:33 Blasphemer! 20:05:35 And lets just not get started about Mahler! 20:05:40 It's all about twisted structure to me (could you tell from my languages...?), and for that, Prokofiev absolutely frickin rules. At least, to me. 20:05:55 soon you'll say you like strauss or chopan or something 20:05:58 now I think he might even beat Sibelius at being most pompous ever 20:06:07 hiato, which Strauss? 20:06:17 Handel and Chopin are also good stuff. 20:06:17 I quite like some of Chopin's music 20:06:18 AnMaster: you have me stumped 20:06:24 Händel varies 20:06:28 flight of the valkyer strauss, AnMaster 20:06:29 I like part of his music 20:06:35 some less so 20:06:37 the most pompous is obviously vagner 20:06:41 wagner 20:06:47 please, say it isn't so 20:06:49 flight of the valkyer strauss, AnMaster <-- now you are mixing up Strauss and Wagner 20:06:52 eg 20:06:54 I know 20:06:57 I meant blue danube 20:07:03 hiato, and Wagner is *horrible* 20:07:03 I was thinking about wagner though 20:07:06 that is easily worst ever 20:07:07 ever 20:07:09 yes, agreed 20:07:19 hiato, for Strauss, I can't keep them apart really 20:07:23 so can't really answer 20:07:27 i only ever heard one wagner piece and it was pretty awesome (the ouverture to lohengrin) 20:07:28 Wagner is background music for D&D melodrama 20:07:47 cpressey, tabletop? 20:07:54 For that, it makes OK background music, but that's all it is 20:08:02 AnMaster: Ring cycle 20:08:03 cpressey: wagner is bacground music for ww2 melodrama 20:08:09 cpressey, flight of the valkyries doesn't fit anywhere 20:08:14 cpressey, ? 20:08:40 AnMaster: Das Ring Der Niebelungenungenner 20:08:47 cpressey, yes 20:09:04 cpressey, but that last word looks a bit too much extended 20:09:08 out of interest, what's the opion on dvorak here? 20:09:10 Entgegengegangen, my favorite verb. 20:09:27 hiato, okay, quite nice background music 20:09:32 nothing you go "wow" over 20:09:34 anyway, Debussy varies widely. 20:09:36 some is really good 20:09:39 yes, I guess 20:09:40 some is a disaster 20:09:50 Debussy only has one piece worthy of my ears 20:09:52 La Mer is a disaster for example 20:09:56 clarir de lune 20:09:57 Debussy is for falling asleep to 20:10:26 hiato, I would add "The Girl with the Flaxen Hair" to that 20:10:32 meh 20:10:35 Copland, and Britten, otoh... 20:10:49 cpressey, doesn't ring much of bells here 20:10:52 the first slightly 20:10:54 the second none at all 20:11:00 and finally, the last of my idols, the not so classical gershwin 20:11:05 Copland is only known in the US :P 20:11:11 hiato, gershwin is quite nice 20:11:28 also I count classically as the classical period only 20:11:30 well, by apperciating him I can forgive your admiration of chamber music 20:11:35 And sometimes the US is known as Copland, because the Cops here are so ... nice. 20:11:39 the vulgar sense of "classical" music 20:11:44 I call "art music" 20:11:52 interesting 20:11:53 from translating the Swedish word for it 20:11:58 I just call it "music actually worth listening to" :P 20:12:01 -!- whtspc has joined. 20:12:13 Gregor, well I think experimental jazz can be quite okay sometimes 20:12:22 Fair enough. 20:12:32 But yeah, classical music encompasses Haydn to Beethoven, and not much else. 20:12:39 And little of what we've talked about. 20:12:47 debussy is fucking awesome 20:12:53 that is, to me, classic music 20:13:00 classical music, is all of what we mention 20:13:00 Gregor, Beethoven is right at the edge of the classical period though 20:13:05 hiato: obviously you like the arabesque 20:13:07 by debussy 20:13:10 AnMaster: Yeah, he's certainly arguable. 20:13:16 guilty as charged 20:13:17 Gregor, some of his work I would call romantical rather than classical 20:13:28 But that "some" is important :) 20:13:33 lament, I like it, but not something I go "wow" above 20:13:36 about* 20:13:39 AnMaster: you're not hiato 20:13:46 lament, true 20:13:53 I just provided an extra data point 20:13:56 you might actually have some taste 20:14:09 he just claims to like clair de lune, so obviously he must like arabesque as well 20:14:17 lets all agree that Mozart's chamber music is awesome? 20:14:22 especially if for a string quartet 20:14:35 dunno, divertimentos are kinda boring 20:14:52 !Error: does not compute! 20:15:15 i really like the 1st mvt of dissonance quartet, but the others not so much 20:15:17 lament, I quite like the last movement in Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (spelling? The spellchecker should auto detect what I meant!) 20:15:26 oh i never actually heard that :D 20:15:32 Heh 20:15:37 And sheep may safely graze 20:15:54 lament, well, it is one of his most famous pieces of music 20:16:01 AnMaster: only one mvt 20:16:06 lament, which one? 20:16:08 obviously i heard that one 20:16:09 the famous one 20:16:10 fuck 20:16:17 lament, I don't know which one is the famous one! 20:16:31 Suk! 20:16:44 Nobody (outside of the Czech Republic) has heard of Suk :P 20:16:51 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqah1rucyRg <-- IT'S SO AMERICAN! 20:16:51 lament, I'm talking about Rondo: Allegro 20:17:14 cpressey, the title made me decide it wasn't worth the effort to youtube-dl 20:17:20 AnMaster: 1st mvt is the famous one 20:17:29 uh, but the percussion section in the orchestra is kind of fail 20:17:29 lament, all, well, it is kind of okay 20:17:41 lament, but nothing, I repeat *nothing* like the final movement! 20:18:19 lament, the final movement really made me go "wow, wow" the first time I heard it 20:18:32 also what is your opinion on Leopold Mozart? 20:18:42 AnMaster: it's actually a fine piece of music. 20:18:45 IMo of course 20:19:05 cpressey, which one? K525 IV. Rondo? 20:19:10 never heard leopold mozart 20:19:14 * hiato thinks that anyone who checks the logs for today will think that the date must be April 1 20:19:14 AnMaster: the link i sent 20:19:24 * AnMaster wonders how many here has even listened to anything composed by W. A. Mozart's father 20:19:28 * cpressey has almost no opinion on Mozart 20:19:41 Beethoven, otoh 20:19:45 <3 Beethoven 20:19:48 * hiato has never heard of W. Mozart's Father 20:19:53 noooooo! 20:19:54 cpressey, isn't any "wow" 20:20:08 -!- dougx has quit (Quit: Leaving.). 20:20:09 AnMaster: Any Mozart? Um... 20:20:14 hiato, Leopold Mozart. Heard one piece of it 20:20:19 That Turkish March thing is catchy. 20:20:22 beethoven is lame 20:20:28 cpressey, well yes 20:20:33 i hate beethoven 20:20:36 AnMaster: name? 20:20:36 cpressey, I meant Beethoven " cpressey, isn't any "wow"" 20:20:36 what a pretentious dickwad 20:20:37 lament: OK, so let me get this straight. 20:20:41 hiato, who? 20:20:46 cpressey: turkish is wolf mozart 20:20:48 lament: You *like* Debussy and you *don't like* Beethoven. 20:20:50 hiato, oh the piece? Toy Symphony 20:20:55 AnMaster: yeah 20:20:56 hiato, includes some unusual instruments 20:21:01 oh? 20:21:05 cpressey: beethoven is like, omg check out how awesome i am and how much my heroic soul suffers 20:21:12 guess what fuck you dipshit i dont care 20:21:33 cpressey, I have to agree with lament here. Beethoven made some quite nice pieces. But a lot of it is just too heavy and romantical 20:21:48 thirded! (?) 20:22:09 when beethoven is classical, he's worse than mozart 20:22:15 when beethoven is romantic, he's worse than chopin 20:22:19 he's just stuck in this in-between stage 20:22:36 lament, Fur Elise is quite nice though 20:22:58 they used to play an electronic version of it on some radio station here when it wasn't sending 20:22:59 moohlight aynone? 20:23:02 like, during the night 20:23:06 the first opening bars or such 20:23:16 hiato, "meh" 20:23:26 I would say moonlight > fur elise 20:23:28 AnMaster: dcc 20:23:31 I don't get what the fuss is about wrt moonlight 20:23:42 lament, uh, need to unblock it 20:23:46 but that's just becaues, for me, the melody is more "involved" 20:24:07 lament, okay, temporarily unignored dcc 20:24:09 try again 20:24:16 lament, and I'm behind weird NAT 20:24:23 so, I hope it all works on your side 20:24:36 lament, but what are you going to send? 20:24:39 lament: Just wanted to get that straight. 20:24:48 (and when will the dialogue come?) 20:24:50 For the record, I barely consider what Debussy wrote to be music. 20:25:10 cpressey, for La Mer I would agree. For several of his other works I find them very nice 20:25:47 of course even La Mer is *miles* above people like Schönberg (who is *parsecs* above Wagner) 20:25:59 As French composers go, Berlioz or Couperin. 20:26:04 cpressey, Satie! 20:26:07 but back to beethoven, I have this brialliant CD set of Ashkenazy playing some of his piano movements, brilliant the lot. But, then as they progress, you can hear the romantic influences and it gets annoying 20:26:09 Oh right! 20:26:17 I keep forgetting Satie is French. 20:26:18 cpressey, Lizt and Paganini are interesting technically 20:26:26 lament, aren't you going to resend the DCC request then? 20:26:41 lament, as I said it was dropped first time and now I temporarily allowed it 20:26:41 AnMaster: only if you are a violin player 20:26:45 And Schönberg was some very twisted soul who I'll never understand. 20:26:46 hiato, what? 20:26:51 hiato, well, to listen to 20:27:09 Paganinin, I don't find technically interesting, being a saxophonist 20:27:16 lament, it says "connecting..." 20:27:28 lament, sure you opened the ports on your side? 20:27:31 fuck dcc 20:27:32 * DCC RECV connect attempt to lament failed (err=Connection timed out). 20:27:37 oh well 20:27:40 i'm too lazy to upload it 20:27:47 lament, fur elise I see 20:27:53 but what is special about that one 20:28:15 * AnMaster re-enabled *!*@* dcc ignore 20:28:16 cpressey: debussy is stunning at times 20:28:28 lament, agreed. But what about La Mer? 20:28:33 cpressey: you don't like the sunken cathedral? 20:28:35 you can't say that one is stunning can you? 20:28:45 AnMaster: please be more logical and less non-sequitur 20:28:56 lament, wrt what? 20:29:53 * AnMaster never heard the sunken cathedral btw 20:30:06 brb in a few minutes 20:30:45 Checking my playlist now, it seems I listen to brahms more than vivaldi, handel, chopin, mozart, bach, lizt and some others put together 20:30:51 and I don't even like brahms :P 20:31:03 brahms has awesome harmonies 20:31:07 nobody else is even close 20:31:25 well i guess rachmaninoff 20:32:31 Who was it that wrote the Peer Gynt Suite? That, to me, is the greatest (non-Satie) simplistic music 20:32:43 If Beethoven had a suffering, heroic soul, then Debussy had the soul of a lovesick schoolgirl. 20:33:33 * cpressey looks for Sunken Cathedral 20:34:43 hiato: Grieg I think? 20:35:34 Se possible 20:35:59 who, by the way, I think struck it lucky with hall of the mountain king 20:36:32 Kind of a one-hit wonder, yeah, but he wrote a lot of short "character pieces", and what I've heard of the others, he's not too bad. 20:36:54 pf... didn't know about that 20:38:16 Completely forgot. 20:38:32 Mendelssohn 20:38:37 Checking my playlist now, it seems I listen to brahms more than vivaldi, handel, chopin, mozart, bach, lizt and some others put together <-- bramhs? "meh" again 20:38:53 Who was it that wrote the Peer Gynt Suite? That, to me, is the greatest (non-Satie) simplistic music 20:38:58 Grieg is indeed awesome 20:39:26 I listened to the whole Peer Gynt of course 20:39:29 OK, now I can say I have endured the Sunken Cathedral. 20:39:30 quite interesting 20:39:36 cpressey, link? 20:39:41 It's kind of nice... if you like downing. 20:39:56 Or drowning. 20:40:01 Mendelssohn is meh 20:40:07 AnMaster: to which? 20:40:10 medelssohn is genious 20:40:18 cpressey, sunken cathedral 20:40:19 violin concerto in e minor! 20:40:29 I-TAL-ian, I-TAL-ian, dah DAHHH, duh duh duh 20:40:31 hiato, not sure I heard that one. Link? 20:40:39 AnMaster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3geejD5Dksk 20:41:23 cpressey, disharmonic much? 20:41:33 that is the bit I hate about La Mer 20:41:37 well not hate 20:41:40 that's too strong 20:41:44 "strongly dislike" is better 20:41:56 AnMaster: http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Electrical-Engineering-and-Computer-Science/6-035Fall-2005/CourseHome/index.htm 20:41:59 yugh 20:42:06 hiato, really? 20:42:11 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p08izmpPy0s# 20:42:14 heh 20:42:16 hiato, are you using synergy or something? 20:42:17 AnMaster: lots of wishy-washy not-exactly-disharmonious fourths and ninths and stuff, I though 20:42:23 goddamn two xclipboards 20:42:24 it tends to fuck up your clipboard badly 20:42:32 hiato, I always use middle mouse one 20:43:35 i guess 20:44:43 Chopin isn't great, but there's a couple of his pieces that always get stuck in my head 20:44:55 well, okay background music 20:45:00 you don't remember it 5 minutes later 20:45:03 I don't dig piano music generally, but his I can usually stand 20:45:07 that is my opinion on Chopin 20:45:23 Not quite as background-y as Wagner, but yes, pretty background-y. 20:45:25 cpressey, wrt. piano music: Mozart or Lizt 20:45:36 plus I play piano (amateur level!) myself 20:45:45 You know, I know almost nothing by Liszt. 20:45:50 cpressey, wagener isn't backgroundy. Wagner is headachy 20:45:57 And, I now claim, Mozart was a robot. 20:46:03 cpressey, what? 20:46:17 Well, I figured I ought to have some opinion about him, so there it is,. 20:46:24 XD 20:47:50 AnMaster: and? what did you think of he mendelssohn? 20:47:52 lament, listened to that sunken cathedral. Not one of his best pieces 20:48:02 hiato, just started listening to it 20:48:22 hiato, too much symphony orchestra. But at least a lot of strings. 20:48:38 Wait, it's a *violin* concerto 20:48:41 mainly solo 20:48:42 hiato, one of mendelssohn's better pieces so far 20:48:48 hiato: Max Bruch also wrote a pretty quality violin concerto 20:48:53 hiato, well, too much orchestra then 20:48:54 -!- angstrom has joined. 20:49:00 Never heard of him cpressey 20:49:02 (hiato, remember I prefer chamber music) 20:49:11 hm who is angstrom? 20:49:20 hiato: I first heard of him from the B-side of that Mendelssohn concerto :) 20:49:21 could a quine be written which utilizes a function to generate a sequence of numbers (ascii) which, printed out, represent the program (_including_ the implementation of the function!) ? 20:49:25 cpressey, anyway got anywhere with befunge-111 today? 20:49:37 AnMaster: not working on it today. 20:49:49 angstrom, how do you mean? 20:50:02 angstrom, and in which language 20:50:04 *B-side of a recording of that Mendelssohn concerto 20:50:19 AnMaster: wondering whether is possible at all 20:50:21 angstrom: in any sufficiently powerful language (TC with a few assumptions about I/O), there's no reason it couldn't be 20:50:40 ais523: You get pinged on 'quine', don't you? :) 20:50:43 AnMaster: right, a chamber musci man can't apperciate mendelssohn at his best 20:50:44 ais523: but how would one move towards it 20:50:49 cpressey, :D 20:50:52 cpressey: no, I don't; just happened to look into the channel 20:51:01 cpressey: interesting, I'll take a look around 20:51:09 angstrom: you'd use one of the quine models that allow you to add arbitrary data that's also quined 20:51:18 hiato, yeah, Vivaldi, Mozart and Kraus for me. And *some* of Haydn 20:51:28 then put code in that duplicates that arbitrary data that changes an ordinary quine into the numbers 20:51:37 ais523: that is not what i mean 20:51:46 what do you mean? 20:52:18 are you trying to limit the "function" somewhat so it doesn't have a bunch of arbitrary data encoded in it? 20:52:26 hiato: OK, listening to the Mendelssohn concerto again, uhhh. Max Bruch's is good, but it doesn't compare. 20:53:02 hiato yet I like Grieg very much. But a lot of his isn't pompous even though it uses a full orchestra. (Of course some exceptions, like "I dovregubbens sal" (iirc, and "In the hall of the mountain king" in English)) 20:53:11 (yet that one is acceptable somehow) 20:53:26 ais523: for every given arbitrary finite sequence a function, which generates this sequence, could be described. the problem is: the sequence _must_ contain the implementation of the function 20:53:34 -!- whtspc has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds). 20:53:58 ais523, anyone made a GOL "quine"? 20:54:01 well 20:54:03 non-trivial one 20:54:07 AnMaster: yeah, everyone has theri own tastes though. funyy that you like grieg though 20:54:11 got my point? 20:54:18 cpressey: yeah! now you start to apprecaite mendelssohn 20:54:24 angstrom: yes; but that's just the same as a normal quine 20:54:29 he's brilliant like no other for those concertos 20:54:32 hiato, it has a feeling of lightness and open nature about it all through. 20:54:35 because you can see the entire program as a function 20:54:55 AnMaster, what, grieg? 20:54:59 hiato, yes 20:55:12 hiato: I had forgotten... 20:55:13 hiato, don't you just see the fjords when you listen to his music 20:55:27 (well not in all pieces of course) 20:55:31 ais523: could you provide me with a particular example? all the quines i've seen relly heavily on pre-processor macros 20:55:32 AnMaster hahaha, yeah, I'm pining for the fjords 20:55:38 cpressey :) 20:55:58 hiato, augh. But seriously... some of Grieg's best is non-Peer-Gynt 20:55:58 ais523: maybe you are right 20:56:12 angstrom: think any BF quine, but interpreted as a function; if you want it to be an actual function in the language, use a BF-like language which has functions 20:56:17 hiato, hardangerfela (sp?) is a nice Norwegian "folk" instrument 20:56:33 AnMaster: I must disagree. In fact, I find it hard to apprecaite any of his other stuff compare to it 20:56:51 hiato, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardingfele 20:56:59 hiato, what? !? 20:57:14 ais523: ic. have to investigate 20:57:15 hiato, Peer Gynt is good but nothing like *digs around for cd* 20:57:45 ah found it 20:58:24 hiato, hm must check which track on the cd it is I'm thinking about 20:59:17 hiato, Norwegian Dance No. 2 for example 20:59:35 hiato, (Allegretto tranquillo e grazioso) 21:00:19 hiato, Solveig's Sang is nice though 21:00:20 link por favor 21:00:28 (even though it is in Peer Gynt) 21:00:57 hiato, sure: http://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=8.551108 21:01:00 though, I think I did try searching for norweigan dance once, after having heard it on theradio 21:01:19 hm times out for me that link 21:01:29 ah now it loads 21:01:45 hiato, anyway, it is track 3 on that cd. 21:01:59 hiato, solveig's sang you can find any number of 21:02:06 hiato, just pick an instrumental one! 21:02:13 Schubert's Unfinished is also good. Never been a huge fan of his other stuff though. 21:02:26 AnMaster: will do, commencing youtubing now 21:02:29 hiato, also Holberg Suite: Prelude is awesome 21:03:45 hiato, I imagine a Scandinavian mountainous region, crystal clear weather, slight breeze, mid-morning. 21:03:55 fjords definitely have a place in there! 21:04:39 haha :P 21:04:42 well it changes feeling towards the end 21:04:49 but to begin with it is definitely like that 21:04:53 eh, it keeps timing out, but I will keep searching 21:05:08 hiato, also Holberg Suite: Andante is quite nice 21:05:20 not "wow" 21:05:22 but restful 21:06:26 you see, I like the dramatic music of tchaikovsky, and the tension of prokofiev (esp: dance of the knights/romeo juliet) so it's difficult for me to accept "airy" music like some of this 21:06:47 hiato, tchaikovsky: overly dramatic and somewhat pompous 21:07:05 hiato: I think you and I must have similar tastes. Satie is some of the only music that I like that I would call "airy". 21:07:20 hiato, But would you call Vivaldi's summer, third movement "airy"? 21:07:29 Tchaikovsky I'm kind of neutral on. 21:07:38 hiato, it's supposed to depict a raging thunderstorm ffs! 21:07:40 Vivaldi rocks. 21:07:51 cpressey: I would mostly agree 21:08:04 and that movement takes second place on my all time best list 21:08:17 AnMaster: well, the only thing I really like from vivaldi is winter, er, allegro i think 21:08:43 after Kraus' Sinfonia in C# minor movement 4 21:08:56 hiato, the winter is the worst of the seasons 21:08:59 I like weird. Some of the composers I like are obviously pretty weird (Prokofiev, Satie, Milhaud, Stravinsky...) I'm trying to figure out what the ones who *aren't* weird, have in common. 21:09:04 of course vivaldi did a lot more than just the seasons 21:09:10 some of it very nice 21:09:19 cpressey, satie is not weird 21:09:22 Vivaldi is not weird, neither is Mendelssohn 21:09:41 cpressey, I recommend you listen to Kraus 21:09:53 AnMaster: I really can't dig vivaldi 21:09:53 AnMaster: Satie is extremely weird! It's just hard to hear in some of his pieces 21:09:59 cpressey: to me, those are normal 21:10:01 hiato, well that's your issue ;P 21:10:03 He wrote a piece for walking stick! 21:10:08 what AnMaster appreciates, now that's weird ;) 21:10:17 hiato, no! 21:10:36 Well, on the other hand, Schoenberg was ... too weird. Schoenberg is like the Malbolge of composers. 21:11:05 haha 21:11:09 I like that comparison 21:11:14 never heard his stuff though 21:11:19 hiato, airy music I definitely like. Dramatic: sure, but I definitely forbid more than 0.01 µWagner of pompousness! 21:11:22 where satie is BF 21:11:33 hahaha 21:11:34 Satie wrote a piece with words, and included the note "These are not lyrics. Under no circumstances should they be spoken aloud during performance" 21:11:45 cpressey, my dad likes Schönberg. And Wagner. 21:11:47 *shudder* 21:12:13 look, I don't like wagner any more than you, and unfortunately, you have the same taste as my dad AnMaster 21:12:14 cpressey, he was quite anti-Wagner iirc 21:12:15 Hm, Satie = BF? Maybe... 21:12:26 hiato, "unfortunately"? 21:12:37 cpressey, nah, Satie is more like a mild version of intercal 21:12:42 Yeah, we have entirely separarte CD collections 21:12:49 hiato, same here! 21:12:54 I was thinking Satie = Underload, but I'm not familiar enough with Underload to say 21:12:55 i cant stand his stuff, he doesn't like mine 21:13:03 my dad even likes Stravinsky 21:13:07 which I just don't get 21:13:07 and I'm not familiar enough with Satie to say 21:13:16 well, it isn't actually horrible 21:13:18 like Wagner is 21:13:24 but, what is the point of Stravinsky... 21:13:26 yeah, mine likes water music, which is just atrocious 21:13:41 AnMaster: The point of Stravinsky is The Rite of Spring. 21:13:42 hiato, Händel's water music? 21:13:44 well it is kind of OK 21:13:50 Not in specific, but yes 21:13:59 AHHHHH! NOOOOOO! Not you too! 21:14:03 That's about all... a lot of his other stuff is pretty meh. 21:14:03 wow, I never knew Handel had an umlaut 21:14:09 hiato, not on my "best" list 21:14:12 have you tried spectral music ? :) 21:14:14 hiato: ? 21:14:17 ais523, he dropped it after he moved to UK 21:14:23 ais523, but yes originally he did 21:14:36 ais523, and that is an ä not an a with an umlaut 21:14:37 t! 21:14:40 I like Handel pretty good. I think he makes my top ten. Or at least, he did once. 21:14:41 s/t// 21:14:49 AnMaster: ok, fine, but try not to listen to it 21:14:53 what? 21:14:57 hiato, water music? 21:15:08 hiato, yeah most movements are a bit too pompous for my taste 21:15:11 yeah 21:15:14 there is one movement in it I like 21:15:21 which one was it now again 21:15:25 "airy", insusbstantail, decorative 21:15:28 hiato, Alla hornpipe or something? 21:15:45 hiato, the other ones are too pompous definitely, or just not good 21:16:16 hiato, also way too few violins in the water music! 21:16:18 AnMaster, I'm sorry, the act of listening to that and baroque is physically annoying to me, I just can't do it 21:16:28 AnMaster: What do you think of Couperin? 21:16:37 cpressey, "who?" 21:16:47 hiato, I do keep away from Bach played on organ 21:16:56 Bach on piano is quite okay 21:17:05 AnMaster: baroque, french, mainly harpsichord/organ 21:17:07 but I hate the instrument that is called organ 21:17:08 -!- angstrom has changed nick to angstrom_. 21:17:22 cpressey, harpsichord is quite okay 21:17:28 cpressey, organ should be outlawed 21:17:59 organ >> harpsicord, have you ever heard of jazz harpsichord? I don't think so 21:18:07 no 21:18:21 but then I only enjoy jazz when I happen to listen to it 21:18:27 AnMaster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZXzuIsxb64 if you want a sample (it's alright -- I know I've heard better by him, but I can't find it) 21:18:28 by pure chance 21:18:30 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 21:18:36 it isn't something I actively try to listen to 21:18:56 hiato, also organ should be outlawed 21:19:01 I still maintain that 21:19:07 it is the worst instrument ever devised 21:19:17 possibly apart from "opera-style singing" 21:19:23 I'm not really happy about any instrument that has only one output level 21:19:41 But I don't think I share AnMaster's organ-hate 21:19:51 cpressey, hm? that would explain a lot about organs 21:19:53 Harp, ugh 21:19:53 if that was so 21:19:58 AnMaster, you have some serious problems, like, the same sort should I choose to code liktheora in malbolge 21:20:01 cpressey, harp can be nice 21:20:20 harp is okay, harp as in harmonica is great 21:20:22 hiato, libtheora in malbolge!? 21:20:23 wth 21:20:35 hiato, I mean, classical harp 21:20:36 AnMaster: yeah, harpsichord has one dynamic only. That's why a piano is called a piano (short for pianoforte, i.e. it can be soft *and* loud) 21:20:45 I have no idea what "harp as in harmonica" *is* 21:21:02 harp is blues/jazz slang for harmonica. very confusing 21:21:11 harp is slang for harmonica 21:21:14 eh, ninja'd 21:21:16 cpressey, what about spinets? 21:21:44 "ninja'd"? 21:21:48 wth does that mean 21:21:58 harmonica is "meh" 21:22:01 neutral 21:22:49 hiato, anyway, I'm not talking about jazz instruments here 21:22:56 god you're STILL talking about music 21:23:03 AnMaster: Not really familiar with them. There are a tonne of percussion/plectra keyboard instruments that have niche roles... 21:23:07 i went to lunch already 21:23:14 lament, we were talking about quines a bit in the middle 21:23:21 AnMaster: harps are not jazz instruments. 21:23:23 lament, but well, there was no other discussion going on 21:23:28 lament, I never claimed that 21:23:32 Actually, I think we're mostly talking about instruments now. 21:23:33 lament, it was hiato who did 21:23:40 AnMaster: from the xkcd forums, someone beats you to someting 21:23:50 hiato, ah... 21:23:52 lament: harp -> harmonica 21:24:00 hiato, xkcd jumped the shark long ago 21:24:00 yes, harmonicas are not jazz instruments 21:24:06 harp -> harmonica confused me for years 21:24:16 harp is harp 21:24:18 nothing else to me 21:24:23 http://goatkcd.com/120/sfw 21:24:26 Yes, because blues is not jazz. 21:24:52 lament, nsfw! 21:25:03 well some people play chromatic harmonicas in a jazz setting 21:25:18 but when people say harp they usually mean diatonic 21:25:21 btw, has anyone invoked rule 34 on rule 34? 21:25:44 AnMaster: jumped the shark? 21:25:49 lament, I also heard Vivaldi's summer on electric guitar 21:25:49 And, FWIW, I don't really like harmonica. 21:25:53 what about rule 42 on rule 34? 21:25:56 lament, go figure 21:26:05 (I didn't like it at all) 21:26:14 Glass harmonicas are much cooler. 21:26:17 lament: ok, fair enough, but my original claim was that organs can be 21:26:25 cpressey: most people play harmonicas really badly 21:26:36 hiato, http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/JumpingTheShark 21:26:51 (sorry for that!) 21:27:03 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XPfoFZYso8 <-- Glass harmonica. Maybe AnMaster will forgive that it sounds kind of like an organ? 21:27:11 (be aware of that tvtroupes is highly addictive!) 21:27:18 After all, harmonica = "mouth organ" 21:27:45 cpressey, How does it work? 21:28:03 AnMaster: Water. 21:28:06 cpressey, but it gave me half a headache I feel 21:28:17 * hiato head will explode, as he cannot debug+chat+chat+irc 21:28:21 cpressey, why is it spinning? 21:28:32 hiato, irc is chat 21:28:35 there is no other chat 21:28:36 well 21:28:38 (never mind blink and breath) 21:28:41 talk 21:28:44 but that is dead 21:28:47 sadly so 21:28:47 haha 21:28:53 I still know some people who use talk 21:28:58 yes seriously! 21:29:05 What?

Like I said, he seems almost as "pompous" as any romantic, Russian composer to me. 22:17:00 "Best" is such a vulgar word. 22:17:21 cpressey, hardly. Well that recording maybe. I suggest you listen to the recording I have at home 22:17:32 cpressey, which was performed by chamber "orchestra" 22:17:36 cpressey, sounds much better 22:17:41 Allow me to inject some true vulgarity into the discussion: Autechre have a new album out. 22:17:56 alise, yeargh 22:18:11 cpressey, look what you done. alise is the one who likes *really* weird music 22:18:17 Eat bleeps and die, AnMaster! 22:18:26 Hey, cpressey mentioned KFDforgotten the rest of the name. 22:18:32 So we're only seven lightyears apart. 22:18:33 alise, you admitted that yourself a bit before 22:18:35 well 22:18:39 quite some time ago 22:18:43 From my position you're not even in the observable universe 22:19:32 If you want to get into modern music, yes, I like KMFDM. And Rage Against the Machine. And Bad Religion. And Rammstein. 22:19:44 Which is sort of a paradigm shift away from "classical" 22:20:03 I don't think I've ever heard of Autechre 22:20:12 Mwah, a bot-tweet: "About NetHack: slay, a long sword is not a number! i am. xander: let go of frodo, and of knowledge, including mit and stanford, and he..." Yes, a long sword and a number indeed have some crucial differences. 22:21:21 -!- dougx has left (?). 22:21:22 fizzie: Is that fungot, or is there another twitterbot out there somewhere that fungot is having a conversation with? 22:22:19 It was fungot. Or, well, the same babbling-algorithm, anyway; it's not exactly the same script that's doing the tweeting. 22:23:09 But a twitter account called "theirctrout" had slapped fungot a bit with a large trout, for some reason; possibly because it mentioned the word IRC in there. 22:23:20 fizzie, is the script written in befunge? 22:23:55 Twungot actually replies to all mentions of its name, so it said "@theirctrout should be called when the tracer tries to write moving code? hah. foxfire, throw is broken. c supports it however you want" as a reply. 22:23:55 Autechre is basically the result of catting /dev/random to /dev/audio. 22:24:01 Well, the later stuff, at least. 22:24:25 Autechre is basically the result of catting /dev/random to /dev/audio. <-- see, I said you preferred the weird music 22:24:27 alise: It does sound a little random, to me. 22:24:43 AnMaster: Not (yet). I was tempted by the easiness of doing the Twitter API bits with a normal language. Maybe I'll Funge-98 it later. 22:24:53 I'm promoting Penguin Cafe Orchestra, here. 22:25:06 cpressey, what is that? 22:25:06 Listening to a 30 second snippet sort of defeats the point of seeing all the motifs being randomly shuffled about. 22:25:14 But then you have to be crazy anyway. 22:25:50 AnMaster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvbCV6E0Wro <-- you might like them, it's sort of modern chamber music. 22:26:07 cpressey, if that was the one you linked before? 22:26:09 then yes 22:26:12 I liked it 22:26:14 Yes. 22:26:20 Hail. 22:26:26 cpressey, a bit too much hits of percussion though 22:27:17 this one's weirder: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZygIVDql8Bk 22:27:38 cpressey, well yeah.

The buttons add "pre-programmed" chords iirc. 23:17:01 "Ice rain", it's a synth effect. 23:17:05 Gregor, ah 23:17:34 Gregor, low quality sound fount for zee1? 23:17:43 cpressey: Yes, but the pre-programmed chords available vary, to my knowledge, from instrument to instrument. They certainly include a fifth, major and minor thirds, sevenths and augmented sevenths, but beyond that, Idonno. 23:17:44 or meant to be that way? 23:18:10 AnMaster: For which instrument? I actually downgraded the piano intentionally, the accordion is good, the others were the best I could find. 23:18:23 Gregor, piano mainly 23:18:31 but okay 23:18:37 Yeah, the piano I downgraded because the others were OK-ish but not great, and the piano stood out too much ;P 23:18:43 The .. pacing of a bit of zee1 is a bit off-putting, but other than that, it's a bit nice 23:18:50 Gregor, all needs to be perfect piano level 23:18:53 Gregor, kind of 23:19:20 Sgeo, how is the pacing "off-putting" 23:19:29 what is off-putting is that it ends in the middle of a tone 23:19:41 AnMaster: zee* loop 23:19:45 Hm, it's been a hell of a long time since I've written any music. Most of my compositions are lost due to various forms of data loss. 23:19:48 Gregor, aha! 23:19:50 It's just.. awkward, somehow 23:19:59 Sgeo, no it is not 23:20:10 it is perfect except for needing higher quality samples 23:20:13 Maybe not pacing, but I keep getting the impression that bits are not aligned with other bits temporally, or something 23:20:18 Gregor, zee2 is interesting 23:20:35 Gregor, what are the instruments in zee2? Does it include xylophone? 23:21:03 Marimba. 23:21:11 Gregor, is that something similar? 23:21:21 Half the things I wrote were saved in a proprietary format for a software package that doesn't even install properly on any windows since Windows 95. 23:21:25 IIRC, a marimba is basically identical to a xylophone except that it has resonators. 23:21:37 ah 23:21:39 At least, the means by which it produces a tone is basically identical, the layout is a bit different. 23:22:15 Also, marimba tends to be played with felt-covered mallets, iirc 23:22:33 Oh wait, so does xylo. 23:22:36 I was thinking glock. 23:22:44 Metal against metal 23:22:49 Very pretty. 23:22:50 cpressey: The marimba is to the xylophone as the vibraphone is to the glockenspiel. 23:23:13 Conversely, the marimba is to the vibraphone as the xylophone is to the glockenspiel. 23:23:42 Percussion instrument homomorphisms 23:23:54 Gregor, zee4 is interesting 23:24:11 Gregor, zee2 was a bit nervous if you see what I mea 23:24:12 mean* 23:24:20 I haven't a clue :P 23:24:22 Gregor, zee1 was best IMO 23:24:23 AnMaster, you passed zee3. I take it that zee3 isn't particularly interesting? 23:24:33 Sgeo, we went over that one first didn't we? 23:24:38 Oh, right 23:24:55 Ayy zee1 now I'm in Eastern Europe somewhere, possibly Prague 23:25:05 oh? 23:25:09 I didn't feel that 23:25:13 Someone is trying to sell me a watch! 23:25:18 but zee1 with better samples = total win 23:25:43 Gregor, zee4: Wait, why are we playing Perfect Dark in an n64 emulator? 23:25:46 :P 23:25:50 ? 23:25:57 Gregor, it makes me think of that game 23:26:10 Gregor, never played it? 23:26:12 Nope 23:26:20 Did its music too use a heartbeat as a percussive instrument? 23:26:26 Gregor, some levels have some music in the same style 23:26:29 Gregor, no 23:26:35 but other parts of it 23:26:41 was similar 23:27:06 Gregor, or it *MIGHT* have. I don't know 23:27:54 Apparently, asking in ruby why the channel exists is a Frequently Asked Question, considering how someone said "We need an FAQ" 23:28:08 Gregor, so total ordering: zee1 (needs better samples) > zee4 > the rest 23:28:52 Gee, my favorites didn't even make the list :P 23:29:06 Gregor, not my fault :P 23:30:19 Gregor, I think zee3 was at the bottom 23:30:23 zee5 just above it 23:30:27 Wow X-D 23:30:30 so that leaves zee2 in between 23:30:44 * Sgeo finds it somewhat difficult to form opinions sometimes 23:30:52 -!- coppro has quit (Read error: Operation timed out). 23:31:16 Gregor, and zee2 felt towards the end like the performer had nervous reactions or something 23:31:40 Gregor, I think it is the fast paced playing on Marimba that does it 23:31:52 Gregor, apart from that zee2 is quite nice 23:32:48 Gregor, oh and I don't really like accordion 23:32:55 Bahaha 23:33:00 But there's accordion in zee1 :P 23:33:10 Gregor, well, not as noticable 23:33:24 Because it's not playing like an accordion. 23:33:31 In zee3 it's actually playing like an accordion. 23:33:33 Gregor, that explains it! 23:35:32 Gregor, zee5 could raise a lot of you could get a nicer wave form but keep the electronic feel 23:35:53 Gregor, or maybe just fuzz out it or something 23:36:07 so it didn't poke you in the ear basically 23:37:12 night → 23:39:24 zee5 > zee3 > zee1 > zee2 > zee4 23:42:56 -!- jcp has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 23:44:53 Sorry, I can't even get to the end of zee4. 23:45:06 They took call/cc out of Ruby :( 23:45:34 Sgeo: I thought someone told me here the other day they decided to put it back in 23:45:59 o.O? 23:46:00 -!- jcp has joined. 23:46:10 They will be removing and re-adding it to every other version from now on. 23:47:34 hey, I can't blame them, I waffle plenty on my own designs 23:51:01 call/cc, though. 23:53:06 I can imagine the arguments that must go on about it, on their mailing list. 23:53:40 "No one uses that!" "I do!" "It's hard to implement efficiently on the JVM!" "That shouldn't be a consideration!" etc 23:53:47 "call/cc is hard!" 23:53:54 basically, yes. 23:53:56 "LOL USE LISP" 23:53:59 "I'll call/cc your MOM hard!" 23:54:00 continuations make the baby jesus cry 23:54:13 cpressey: That's quite ridiculous. 23:54:19 Baby Jesus invented continuations. 23:54:40 pikhq: Sorry, I missed quote marks on that one. 23:54:46 And it was an actual quote, too 23:54:52 Ah. 23:55:14 Continuations are, like, the ultimate form of flow control. 23:55:33 Anonymous feedback from a classmate from when I took a programming languages class a few years ago 23:56:05 You take classes in which they teach continuations? 23:56:08 * Sgeo is jealous 23:57:05 Yes, it was nice of them. They *almost* managed to teach us monads in that cirriculum, too. 23:57:07 *Almost*. 2010-03-06: 00:09:03 -!- jcp has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 00:10:12 -!- jcp has joined. 00:16:14 We got continuations on the second half of our Scheme course; and the course was dropped pretty much immediately after I had done it. They arranged it as a summer special once, but it might well be that we currently don't have any courses with continuations in them. 00:22:29 -!- alise has joined. 00:22:31 10:42:18 Lambdas in C? Coincidentally, I have just discovered a marvellous little proof that no god can exist, written in CLambda, which this magin is too narrow to contain 00:22:35 ssh -- pikhq is a christian 00:22:43 he'll /maul/ you 00:23:06 He's Maulutheran. 00:23:22 10:47:38 ah, so this is one of those places that hg >> bza >> svn >> cvs == True 00:23:27 no, that is just anmaster. 00:24:12 alise: That was discussing *my code* you know. :P 00:24:22 that was my point 00:24:31 Ah. 00:24:46 I freely admit my C lambda macros are an affront to all that is good in the world. 00:24:46 it's like using the cross to molest a baby: only kosher if you're simultaneously catholic and jewish (otherwise you don't care about kosherosity) 00:24:49 :P 00:26:03 * Sgeo wonders what #esoteric 's opinion on git is. I kind of like the existance of GitHub 00:26:22 i don't see what github has to do with git 00:26:29 * cpressey is a distributed version control luddite 00:26:30 there could easily be svnhub or whatever.. 00:26:44 Git is rather user-unfriendly, but it sucks less than non-distributed version control things, so. *shrug* 00:26:58 If there are multiple repos, why are there still multiple branches? 00:27:34 The multiple repos I've got checked out on my filesystem are 96+% identical -- why aren't they sharing their data? 00:27:43 MissPiggy, but there isn't, is there? 00:27:57 cpressey: Because filesystems suck. 00:28:06 Oh sorry, I mean, I've got *cloned* 00:28:11 I'm just saying that there needn't be any 'git' in github 00:28:20 I agree that it's a good site though 00:28:27 pikhq: That's no reason for hg to not understand the concept though 00:28:42 Uhhh 00:28:43 cpressey: File systems make data sharing difficult. 00:28:44 It knows its data is immutable 00:28:46 They are hardlinked in hg 00:28:53 -!- dev_squid has joined. 00:28:53 UNIX ones less so than most others. 00:29:01 And Gregor says hg does hardlinks, so. 00:29:17 The .hg directory's contents are hardlinked when you hg clone. 00:29:40 Gregor: Ah. I see. I need to be cloning from a local repo in order for it to do that. 00:29:43 * pikhq notes that COW is a good idea for any sort of on-hard disk serialisation scheme to have. 00:29:50 cpressey: ... uhh, yes? 00:29:54 How else could it possibly work? 00:29:55 I'm cloning multiple copies of the same remote repo 00:30:00 Ahhhhh 00:30:02 It should still be able to figure that out :) 00:30:03 Well, it's not psychic. 00:30:12 cpressey: ... It's not going to magically figure out that you're doing data sharing. 00:30:14 psychics 00:30:14 Well, it should have a way for me to tell it 00:30:16 psychic control system 00:30:26 cpressey: see this is just the kind of thing you need my OS for :P 00:30:28 Clone from your clones. 00:30:31 cpressey: There's a very simple way: Clone the remote one once, then clone that multiple times. 00:30:39 cpressey: That tells it exactly what you want to tell it. 00:30:47 Or use ehirdOS. 00:31:01 Yay complexity. 00:31:08 ... 00:31:23 Well, I'll try it, and see if it makes my life any easier. 00:32:07 But now the argument for supporting branches is even weaker :) 00:32:24 Uh, no? 00:33:02 What advantage to branches have over just forking a clone? 00:33:12 *do 00:33:39 ehirdOS certainly makes your life easier, as long as you have no attachment to existing software suites whatsoever :P 00:33:42 Or interfaces... 00:33:50 Or languages, or APIs. 00:34:17 A branch notes that the branch was made, allows you to merge things more readily, and... Yeah. 00:34:37 12:11:39 the vulgar sense of "classical" music 00:34:49 12:11:44 I call "art music" 00:35:14 I'm pretty sure that's called "concert music". 00:35:16 ...and makes my life hell during merges, is all I'm sayin' :) 00:35:31 -!- alise_ has joined. 00:35:33 pikhq: ... no. 00:35:42 Gregor: No? Okay then. 00:35:56 "Art music" is really a rather arrogant phrase. Particularly since... Other music is (or at least can be) an art. 00:36:23 Orchestral music, maybe? Although there's orchestral rock, even. 00:36:34 Let's just call it composer music, because composers are the only ones who listen to it :) 00:36:49 alise_: Definitely no on both counts. 00:36:54 why not call it classical music? 00:36:59 what's wrong with that? 00:37:10 Because that's music from a specific period with a very specific style. 00:37:15 no 00:37:19 lament: Because AnMaster is a pretentious fuck who lives in the 1800s who is also a gigantic prescriptivist. 00:37:22 Because classical is an era. By calling all music of the form classical music, you've removed the name from that era. 00:37:26 (An era and a style) 00:37:28 that's a *different* meaning of the word "classical" 00:37:34 Yay 00:37:39 'Night folks. Have a good weekend. 00:37:45 -!- cpressey has left (?). 00:37:55 it's ok to have multiple meanings if there's no confusion 00:37:58 and there's no confusion 00:38:01 There is MUCH confusion. 00:38:13 which is why people call classical music classical music, and they call classical music classical music, and nobody is confused. 00:38:18 Only amongst yourselves. 00:38:25 Just call it the classical period. 00:38:30 Classical period music. 00:38:31 everybody knows that "classical music" means two different things 00:38:44 "classical" refers to ancient greece anyway 00:38:49 so there're at least 3 meanings 00:38:50 Classical music is the style of music from the classical period, classical music does not need to be from the classical period. 00:39:20 -!- alise has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 00:39:30 The problem is there's not a term for the music in question here. 00:39:36 I suggest ucodnawg. 00:41:20 You're the man now, ucodnawg 00:41:31 Gregor: Shaddap 00:41:47 also, it turns out windows 7 ships with something genuinely interesting 00:41:52 (As opposed to morbidly curious) 00:42:23 what's more, it's programming-related 00:43:00 Oh? 00:44:08 Yes. PowerShell, in particular. Take, for instance, the seemingly-trivial "type | ls". 00:44:26 Dealiased, Get-Content | Get-SubItem. 00:44:32 But what happens when you run it? 00:44:53 Erm.

PowerShell -- damned verbose shell, but flexible. 00:46:43 InputObject[2]: 00:46:48 [humdrum dir listing] 00:46:57 The interesting thing is the flexibility. 00:47:07 echo doesn't just print some strings to standard output. 00:47:23 It uses a generalised object input mechanism - command-line or interactive - and sends those objects along the pipeline. 00:47:38 Get-SubItem actually takes a legitimate resource, not just a path name, and lists its subitems. Not just directories, either. 00:47:56 It strikes me as similar to concatenative languages. 00:48:58 -!- dev_squid has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds). 00:49:01 ChildItem, not SubItem. 00:49:24 -!- Gracenotes has joined. 00:49:59 In fact the input/output UI + behind the scenes, rich objects idea is tempting for my OS. 00:50:17 interfaces are composable because they're just functions with seasoning 00:50:33 (and even unannotated functions get simple "default" UIs) 00:54:55 13:25:21 btw, has anyone invoked rule 34 on rule 34? 00:55:03 yes; was fulfilled with wolfram elementary automation 34 00:55:29 13:27:11 (be aware of that tvtroupes is highly addictive!) 00:55:29 Tropes. 00:57:47 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Later). 00:59:46 GUILTY! 01:03:27 Meggricxshienneh. 01:07:56 Welcome to the Tableauic Home of the Emigrants. 01:09:18 -!- oklokok has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 01:09:42 -!- oklokok has joined. 01:10:21 yo oklokok 01:10:45 I should stop worrying about ehird 01:12:34 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 01:12:41 Worry about okloCOCK instead. 01:13:06 MissPiggy: why? 01:13:41 okloCOCK taught me something awesome 01:16:02 And that is? 01:16:20 Gregor, kind of like combinator logic excep they don't reduce 01:16:37 this word problem stuff which I had never actaully encountered 01:16:56 it feels a little bit like diophantine equations too 01:18:06 ; 01:18:39 I tried reading the Diophante book once 01:18:46 The notation is pretty old school 01:18:46 -!- angstrom_ has changed nick to angstrom. 01:18:53 -!- oklokok has quit (Read error: Operation timed out). 01:25:59 -!- oklokok has joined. 01:26:02 THE diophantine book? 01:27:30 Yeah 01:27:34 Arithmetica 01:33:07 -!- oklokok has quit (Read error: Operation timed out). 01:33:44 -!- oklokok has joined. 01:35:54 ohh 01:35:57 Gauss? 01:36:24 oh it's by Diophantus 01:36:25 okay 01:36:30 Id not heard of this somehow 01:36:38 is it wort reading? 01:37:12 x 01:37:25 Well, I only found a version in greek with a latin translation 01:37:30 So it's a bit hard to follow 01:37:35 heh 01:37:42 I can read the equations now, but not much else 01:38:44 I tried making this : http://esolangs.org/wiki/User:Slereah/Arithmetica 01:39:34 cool 01:42:05 translate Ang. plass til barnevogner: 01:42:18 Regarding space for prams: 01:42:26 swedish Ang. plass til barnevogner: 01:42:27 Ung. pless teel bernefugner: 01:42:33 translate Tro meg, plassen er et betraktelig større problem enn å få vognen inn og ut. 01:42:35 Believe me, the place is a considerably larger problem than to get the cart in and out. 01:42:51 translate Nå har riktignok mange kvinner kommet frem til en eller annen "vedtatt sannhet" om at det ikke er mulig å bære en liten vogn opp tre trappetrinn alene, selv når det gjelder små triller som man lett får grep på, men det er et forsvinnende problem ettersom de aller fleste nyere busser her er trappeløse. 01:42:53 because the vast majority of newer buses here are step-less. 01:43:24 I wish somebody who was totally not me would fix translatefromto and translateto :P 01:43:35 We just need to make a copy of Gregor. 01:43:41 Hmm... 01:43:46 Gregor, I would like to be a copy of you. 01:43:46 That person would not be "totally not me" 01:43:50 That person would be "mostly me" 01:44:00 You may commence sending yourself. 01:48:00 A truly set language would be fun. 01:48:35 { {x,{x,x}} | x <- a } is id 01:49:18 { {x,{x,{{y,{y,y}}}}} | x <- a, y <- b } is K 01:49:45 where (x,y) = {x,{x,y}} and \x.y is {{x',y'},...} for all values 01:51:13 alis lool enjoy your russles paradox 01:51:14 { {n} U n | n <- a } is succ (U=union, I probably got it the wrong way around again :)) 01:51:34 MissPiggy: uh you can have inductively defined sets without russel's paradox, idiot 01:51:36 *Russell 01:51:50 (1) fuck you 01:51:53 (2) learn set theory 01:53:43 I'll fuck set theory right into your skull? 01:55:58 -!- alise_ has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 01:57:19 (3) realize lisp is really just analogous to all that was just said 01:59:13 (4) fuck lisp right into your skull 02:01:56 I'd love that 02:02:01 nice curvy forms 02:02:10 D-8 02:02:33 nice sexp character 02:03:08 * Sgeo should learn Scheme, probably 02:03:13 But I'm still on a Ruby high 02:03:46 Sgeo: Ugh dump that shit and learn scheme 02:03:59 Ugh dump that shit and love you some Haskell. 02:04:11 No, don't listen to pikhq's fanboyism 02:04:18 All haskelletons are the same 02:04:35 ...

17:58:26 uorygl, also should be moonet 17:58:26 It's not a snowclone as far as I know. 17:58:43 uorygl, snowclone? 17:59:01 A snowclone is a meme based on a phrase. 17:59:12 Like "X is the new Y". 18:01:34 Calling it Moonet would continue the Mooix pattern, but I don't want to do that. 18:02:04 "Internet" was originally an adjective meaning "between the nets"; we can pretend "InterMOO" was originally an adjective meaning "between the MOOs". 18:03:34 an internet is a network of network 18:03:35 *networks 18:03:43 and contrary to popular belief, there is more than one internt 18:03:46 *internet 18:03:50 just, only one of them is big and famous 18:04:01 and that's the one that's called "the Internet" 18:04:23 Arguably, there are two of them that are called the Internet: the Internet version 4 and the Internet version 6. 18:04:34 "inert net". 18:04:58 A net made out of glass would be a pretty inert net. 18:05:47 uorygl: umm, IPv4 is "Internet Protocol version 4" 18:06:05 and the bits of the Internet that use version 4 and version 6 of the protocol are definitely connected togetgher 18:06:07 *together 18:06:09 so form one internet 18:06:45 Intern-net 18:07:05 (If Clinton had invented it instead of Gore) 18:07:16 So, if the Internet Protocol was developed to transfer data between the nets, does that mean that a protocol developed to transfer stuff between the Internet version 4 and the Internet version 6 is an Interinternet Protocol? :P 18:07:22 AnMaster: Your comments on the FRTH fingerprint made me want to write something in Forth. You should be ashamed of yourself. 18:09:00 Anyway, an InterMOO protocol would be based on an RPC protocol. 18:09:20 uorygl: IPv4 Internet and IPv6 Internet are linked. 18:09:25 Thus, what we have is an InterInternet. 18:10:14 (IIRC, they're linked through various forms of tunneling, as well as hosts being on both) 18:10:26 Hmm, maybe an RPC protocol is actually the sole thing we need. 18:10:30 The tunneling is only possible due to the hosts that are on both :P 18:11:13 Thank goodness for 192.88.99.1! 18:12:06 And what's that one DNS server anycast address? 4.3.2.1? 18:14:04 4.2.2.1 18:14:22 What about 8.8.8.8 ? 18:14:27 different servers 18:15:56 fizzie, hah 18:29:29 uorygl: How much MOO would a moo-cow moo if a moo-cow would moo MOO? 18:29:59 If it's my MOO, then about a hundred megabytes of it. 19:12:26 -!- jcp has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 19:13:33 -!- jcp has joined. 19:16:05 -!- MizardX- has joined. 19:18:09 -!- MizardX has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds). 19:18:34 -!- MizardX- has changed nick to MizardX. 19:23:31 I want to like Scheme 19:25:07 that's a strange thing to say 19:25:31 o-qo-do.oo-qp-oo.ob-op-o 19:26:50 yes 19:26:51 y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y \ y 19:27:16 no 19:27:17 No output. 19:27:26 No output. 19:27:27 No output. 19:27:30 cool 19:27:32 No output. 19:27:33 Almost a quine. 19:27:43  19:27:45 No output. 19:28:29 hm 19:28:42 ls 19:28:44 bin \ cube2.base64 \ cube2.jpg \ hack_gregor \ hello.txt \ help.txt \ huh \ netcat-0.7.1 \ netcat-0.7.1.tar.gz \ paste \ poetry.txt \ quotes \ share \ test.sh \ tmpdir.16443 \ wunderbar_emporium \ wunderbar_emporium-3.tgz \ wunderbar_emporium-3.tgz.1 19:28:50 uorygl, does that explain it ;P 19:29:04 huh 19:29:10 file wun* 19:29:12 wun*: ERROR: cannot open wun*' (No such file or directory) 19:29:13 hm 19:29:15 run file wun* 19:29:16 wunderbar_emporium: directory \ wunderbar_emporium-3.tgz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Fri Aug 14 14:01:51 2009 \ wunderbar_emporium-3.tgz.1: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Fri Aug 14 14:01:51 2009 19:29:22 help 19:29:23 Runs arbitrary code in GNU/Linux.

:P 19:51:20 Gregor, I have no idea if it worked, but considering it uses a bug in a system call.. 19:51:28 I don't think plash helps against that 19:51:40 of course, one can hope the kernel is patched 19:51:57 looks like the sock_sendpage root exploit 19:52:38 hm... "Versions prior to the Linux kernel 2.4.37.5 and 2.6.31-rc6 are vulnerable." 19:52:49 Gregor, I suggests you investigate this, just in case 19:53:36 It hands you root. 19:53:52 Which in Plash gets you nowhere. 19:54:06 pikhq, afaik if you have root you can break out of chroot still 19:54:19 pikhq, you are aware of the double chroot I assume? 19:54:42 AnMaster: ... *If you have commands*. 19:54:52 pikhq, it is enough to have syscalls 19:54:57 Plash runs in an empty chroot. 19:55:01 pikhq, since that is all those commands use 19:55:03 Completely. And utterly. Empty. 19:55:05 pikhq, sure, so mkdir as root 19:55:09 pikhq, using syscalls 19:55:12 perfectly possible 19:55:16 then double chroot using that 19:55:16 Mmm. 19:55:42 It is sufficient to have syscalls, as root. 19:55:45 pikhq, my point is that if you have root inside a chroot on linux you can always break out 19:55:48 I still doubt highly that this worked. 19:55:58 Gregor, I hope that is the case 19:56:45 Of course, I don't know what the result was supposed to be :P 19:57:08 Clearly the Plash chroot should be on a read-only filesystem. 19:57:38 pikhq, even so you can circumvent that as root 19:58:02 pikhq, I'm pretty sure remounting would be possible as root even with no access to any sort of /dev 19:58:15 Don't even need to, just mount a tmpfs somewhere. 19:58:29 Gregor: Requires a mountpoint. 19:58:44 AnMaster: Requires a filesystem that is capable of being mounted r/w. 19:58:47 pikhq, like /? 19:58:50 inside the chroot 19:58:57 is already mounted. 19:58:59 that is a valid mount point afaik 19:59:00 Erm. 19:59:06 pikhq, you can mount something on top can't you? 19:59:11 / is already mounted. 19:59:19 pikhq, I once managed to mount /dev on / on a freebsd system 19:59:22 had to reboot it 19:59:56 I just got a spiffy idea. 20:00:01 Hrm. You can in fact mount on top of a mount. 20:00:05 pikhq, yep 20:00:24 pikhq, you need kernel patches to prevent this if you want to do that 20:00:29 RawLinux: a program where you simply type system calls in base64, and it tells you the results in base64. 20:02:22 uorygl, hm? 20:03:03 That's my spiffy idea. 20:03:26 pikhq, just accept that plash depend on there being no local root exploits 20:03:54 uorygl, that would be somewhat messy due to system calls that take pointers and so on 20:04:02 Yes, plash does of course depend on that, it would be silly to think you could work around the possibility of root exploits :P 20:04:09 AnMaster: What about the PtraceJail? 20:04:23 So, Plash works by putting something in an empty chroot, and giving it alternative file system accessors? 20:04:28 uorygl, you would need a way to pointers to structs and so on 20:04:31 uorygl: Yeah. 20:04:32 uorygl: Basically. 20:04:35 It replaces libc. 20:04:55 AnMaster: are there any system calls that use pointers for anything other than taking variable-size input and providing variable-size output? 20:04:58 uorygl, it uses IPC to talk through the chroot with a process that handles file system for it and so on 20:05:01 iirc 20:05:07 AnMaster: What about the PtraceJail? <-- I don't know 20:05:16 but I guess there could be exploits for that as well 20:05:34 There could always be exploits. 20:05:41 No matter how many layers you put between. 20:05:42 Plash could hypothetically monitor *all* the system calls. 20:05:56 Which would leave the exploits being issues in Ptrace. 20:05:58 pikhq: Then it would just take a bug in plash *shrugs* 20:06:03 Or ptrace 20:06:11 Yeah. 20:06:58 or in a system call allowed by plash 20:07:47 (it need to allow some, like those for growing the stack or heap) 20:08:03 (or mmaping anonymous memory or whatever) 20:08:25 Gregor, I wonder how plash emulates mmap()ing of files 20:08:37 Donno 20:08:45 I mean, it needs to actually be mapped into the process for it to have the correct semantics 20:08:59 How does memory mapping files work at all? 20:09:06 uorygl: Satan's magic. 20:09:09 uorygl, using mmap()? 20:09:35 so spider solitaire, can you get good in it? looks pretty luck-based to me 20:09:37 How does mmap() work? 20:09:39 uorygl, but point is, if two processes mmap() the same file, they should see updates 20:09:54 uorygl, black magic 20:09:59 i used to play freecell but after 300 games it's sort of hard to find challenge in it 20:10:06 uorygl, or rather, go read glibc and kernel sources 20:10:14 mostly kernel sources 20:11:00 oklocock: You should get some friends and play Hydra! 20:11:20 Does it copy the file into memory and then copy it back when it's done? Does it trap memory access and replace it with filesystem access? 20:11:44 What's Hydra? Is it that game where you try to grow as many heads as possible before time's up? 20:12:01 uorygl: Well, sort of :P 20:12:10 http://codu.org/wiki/Hydra 20:14:02 uorygl, it reads file in during page faults 20:14:12 uorygl, meaning, it won't actually read the data in until you try to read it 20:14:47 play poker instead 20:14:51 you'll go broke, it's fun 20:14:52 uorygl, if you changed the file, it is written back when the file is either unmapped or when the (underlying physical) page is unmapped by the vm 20:14:56 Strip poker! 20:14:58 iirc 20:15:01 That way, you'll just go naked. 20:15:04 -!- oklokok has quit (Read error: Operation timed out). 20:15:43 -!- Azstal has joined. 20:15:52 strip poker is a very asymmetric game for the men and women involved 20:16:00 uorygl, oh and if several processes mapped the same file, the same page is mapped into both processes 20:16:09 uorygl, so it can be used for IPC 20:16:16 * uorygl nods. 20:16:40 uorygl, I won't promise it works for futexes or such because that is even more black magic than mmaping 20:17:00 it might need something else 20:17:16 (and no that wasn't a typo for mutexes) 20:17:33 -!- Asztal has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds). 20:18:11 uorygl, oh and I think there is some call similar to fflush() for mmaped pages too 20:18:16 to force writing any changes 20:18:24 I don't remember how you did that though 20:18:26 What's a futex? 20:18:37 Can you do mutexes with mmaping? 20:19:26 uorygl, something the linux kernel provides and that glibc pthreads and such then uses to implement mutexes, semaphores and most (all?) of the other pthreads sync thingies 20:19:34 that is what a futex is 20:19:43 uorygl, see man 2 futex 20:19:57 uorygl, oh and man 7 futex too 20:20:08 the latter seems more like an introduction to the concept 20:20:35 uorygl, of course now we are linux specific. These details can and does vary widely between different OSes 20:20:57 though the mmap is probably implemented in a similar manner on most *nix 20:21:04 s/the // 20:21:43 -!- cal153 has quit (Ping timeout: 256 seconds). 20:22:04 * uorygl ponders running Cygwin under Wine under Cygwin under Wine. 20:22:13 why on earth 20:22:27 uorygl, also these mmap semantics are probably *not* valid for cygwin 20:22:29 The same reason we create esoteric programming languages. 20:22:45 uorygl, also iirc it doesn't work 20:22:47 as in 20:22:54 cygwin doesn't run properly under wine 20:23:07 I would expect running Cygwin under Wine to be the easy part. 20:23:21 uorygl, well it might have changed since last time I heard someone try it 20:23:24 (in here too iirc) 20:23:29 maybe was a year or so ago? 20:23:46 Wouldn't it just be a bunch of executables and libraries? 20:23:47 -!- FireFly[DS] has joined. 20:23:52 (that's a guesstimate) 20:24:00 uorygl, ? 20:24:14 FireFly[DS], hi there, long time no c? 20:24:28 Isn't that pretty much what Cygwin is? 20:24:40 uorygl, except it does some weird stuff 20:24:45 uorygl, like it's fork() semantics 20:24:49 I assume you read about them 20:25:33 I know very little about Cygwin. 20:25:43 -!- cal153 has joined. 20:26:40 Cygwin implements UNIX semantics on Windows. 20:26:47 uorygl, to emulate fork it does something like: "start new process, make parent wait on mutex, child wakes up parent and waits on mutex, most of the address space (except read only stuff from the binary) is copied to the child, both processes are resumed" 20:26:49 To do this, it has to do some *very* weird stuff. 20:26:59 -!- FireFly[DS] has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 20:27:00 iirc it was slightly more complex than that 20:27:03 but you get the idea 20:27:06 Fork is probably the weirdest. 20:27:18 pikhq, I suspect mmap would also be very weird 20:27:27 unless it can map it fairly straight to some windows system call 20:27:49 -!- FireFly[DS] has joined. 20:27:55 FireFly[DS], wb! 20:28:07 FireFly[DS], haven't seen you for ages 20:28:25 Hello 20:28:32 AnMaster: Windows has the ability to map files into memory. 20:28:41 Ages, as in what, three days? 20:28:43 pikhq, sure, but what are the semantics for that? 20:28:50 FireFly[DS], hm? maybe I misremember then 20:28:58 Complex, but possible to wrap sanely. 20:29:01 I think so :P 20:29:13 FireFly[DS], why on DS? 20:29:35 Because I'm on a DS, not at home 20:29:44 holiday stuff, skiing 20:29:55 What sort of DS is this? 20:30:09 the Nintendo sort 20:30:14 * uorygl nods. 20:30:20 You "create a file mapping object", which is kinda like fopen, and you then "create a file view", which actually sticks the section of the file you want into virtual memory. 20:30:36 wow, man 7 futex is interesting 20:30:43 The phat nintendo sort, even 20:30:47 it is brilliant and clever 20:30:53 (how it works) 20:31:21 uorygl, is there any DS except Nintendo? 20:31:24 well 20:31:29 that one could possibly IRC from I mean 20:31:39 Doesn't give you odder things like anonymous mappings, but that's not needed for straight POSIX semantics. 20:32:08 I think I've heard of other DSs in the past. 20:32:10 pikhq, are changes reflected in other processes that mapped the same file? 20:32:28 -!- oklokok has joined. 20:32:44 AnMaster: Yes. 20:32:58 pikhq, well it seems okay I guess 20:33:02 then* 20:33:16 pikhq, but aren't anon mappings POSIX? 20:33:24 No. 20:33:40 Anonymous mappings are a common extension. 20:34:44 Oh, whaddya know. There's a way to get anonymous mappings in Win32, too. 20:35:11 You attempt to map an INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE, and voila. 20:35:23 indeed, can't find it in POSIX.1-2008 even 20:35:44 pikhq, that seems like a messy way to do it 20:36:13 It's Win32. 20:37:54 true 20:37:55 but still 20:42:57 * AnMaster wonders if it is possible to make a balanced tree that can be updated concurrently without locking things 20:43:07 and, without causing a huge overhead 20:44:00 read and update should be lockless, and it should be fast in case of no collision between multiple threads 20:44:37 balacing I guess might pose some problems... But preferably not 20:45:07 Make it immutable and all your problems go away. 20:48:43 pikhq, well that would be annoying since the use case would be ATHR when porting to a non-erlang befunge implementation 20:48:55 pikhq, such as might happen at some point in the future 20:49:07 pikhq, the tree needs to be modified a lot if it represents funge space 20:49:24 alternative is a hash table, but that sounds even worse to update without locks 20:49:45 plus hash tables has a worse worst-case 20:50:07 -!- Oranjer has joined. 20:50:58 pikhq, perhaps a RCU implementation? 20:51:18 hm not a good idea 20:51:27 read is cheap, write is not 20:56:21 -!- kar8nga has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 21:06:08 -!- dougx has joined. 21:13:02 -!- dougx has left (?). 21:13:21 -!- coppro has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds). 21:20:09 now the question is, are all prime numbers balloon? 21:20:13 *balloons 21:20:22 oklokok, define balloon 21:20:48 a number n is a balloon iff in every set of 2n-1 numbers there are n that sum to 0 (mod n) 21:21:08 it's simple to show balloons are closed under multiplication, but what's less simple is to show primes are 21:21:19 hm interesting 21:21:43 oklokok, and this has not yet been solved? 21:21:45 1, 2, 3 and 5 are easily shown to be balloons 21:21:51 no, not by me 21:21:55 by anyone? 21:21:59 in fact i didn't even show they are closed under multiplication 21:22:08 -!- Oranjer has left (?). 21:22:15 that was MissPiggy's work, or at least she used that idea in her proof of a special case 21:22:43 oklokok, is there any prize attached to this question? 21:22:45 she asked me whether 100 is a balloon, i couldn't solve it (should've) 21:22:50 and did anyone else solve it? 21:23:04 i wonder where you got the impression this is even a hard problem 21:23:26 oklokok, well, otherwise you would just have consulted a text book to figure out how to prove it 21:23:29 rather than asking us 21:23:48 i just wanted to ask that out loud because it sounded crazy. 21:24:37 oklokok, oh? 21:24:38 easy enough to show they're closed under multiplication, but i wonder if it's possible to show they are closed under addition (that is, "can we prove all n are balloons by induction") 21:24:51 oklokok, why are they called balloons btw? 21:25:49 usually when you say you're proving a property of naturals by induction, you mean P(n) => P(s(n)), but you can also do induction on multiplication, the problem is you have an infinite number of base cases.... 21:26:13 AnMaster: i asked mp what the problem was about, and she said "it has applications in hot air ballooning" 21:26:14 :P 21:26:20 i have no idea what that meant 21:26:24 oklokok, it does? 21:26:27 so i named them balloons. 21:26:43 it would've been an in-joke for her, i wasn't actually going to start talking about this here. 21:26:59 "it does?"= 21:27:01 *? 21:27:09 oh err 21:27:11 right the problem 21:27:16 sorry about being slow 21:27:17 oklokok, I fail to see how it is useful for building or flying heated air balloons 21:27:17 ... 21:27:45 i have no idea what applications it has, if it has applications there, i just quoted, and followed with "i have no idea what that meant". 21:28:01 who cares what it's used for 21:28:02 oklokok, and I'm somewhat of an aerodynamics geek. Though admittedly I'm more interested in non-LTA aircrafts 21:28:08 oh 21:28:08 cool 21:28:13 do you fly planes? 21:28:16 (LTA = lighter than air) 21:28:22 oklokok, only in simulator alas 21:28:34 flying a plane would be awesome 21:28:35 oklokok, a flight certificate is frigging expensive 21:28:41 yeah prolly 21:28:45 how expensive? 21:28:46 much more than a driving license 21:29:01 oklokok, well, depends on what type of aircraft 21:29:19 oklokok, for a small sports plane, 90 000 SEK or so a year ago when I checked 21:29:54 oh well i wouldn't call that "frigging" expensive if you have a job 21:29:59 oklokok, excluding fuel cost and so on 21:30:19 90 000 Swedish kronor = 9 293.20938 Euros 21:30:24 says google 21:30:26 oh well if you wanna fly a plane multiple times 21:30:32 oklokok, hm? 21:30:34 ;) 21:30:38 yeah i know how much a sek is 21:31:00 oklokok, oh you need to fly a minimum distance every year to not loose your certificate after you finally have it 21:31:11 forgot what said distance was 21:31:18 makes sense 21:31:39 oklokok, they should do the same for driving licences 21:32:17 oh btw 2n-1 isn't just a random number, in fact all numbers have the property that there are 2n-2 numbers that don't have a subset summing to 0 mod n 21:32:25 which makes it sort of fascinating 21:33:08 oklokok, thank you for reminding me why I took CS instead of math ;) 21:33:14 -!- Oranjer has joined. 21:33:26 yeah, my friend has lost most of his sight after getting a driver's licence, and doesn't use glasses 21:33:41 oklokok, "oops" 21:33:47 but is still allowed to drive 21:34:11 oklokok, also bi-yearly eye check or such for driving licenses would be a good idea 21:34:16 or maybe every 5 years or such 21:34:39 would have to find a reasonable interval to make it feasible yet actually be useful 21:36:08 -!- coppro has joined. 21:37:06 They have this student-association-thing for people interested in flying planes here; I think they have some sort of special dealie so that you can get the certification a bit cheaper, though not by much. 21:37:31 so... why did you take cs instead of math? 21:38:43 i mean math is prettier 21:38:45 Apparently "4700 - 6600 €" for the thing with a motor on it; and I think that includes fuel costs. (At least it says that fluctuation in fuel prices will affect that price.) 21:39:30 * FireFly[DS] wants unicode support in his client 21:39:47 fizzie, what was that after "6600"? 21:40:03 FireFly[DS]: Probably the euro sign. 21:40:07 Ah 21:40:25 Showed up as å comma not-sign her.. 21:40:33 here* 21:40:37 There's also a glider aircraft course for "1500 - 2200" eur, plus "miscellaneous costs (beer, sausages etc.)". 21:41:08 Too bad the joke in the description doesn't really translate. 21:41:39 why can't the university of turku be in helsinki :< 21:41:56 you have such a cool university there 21:41:56 so... why did you take cs instead of math? <-- math people say thing like " oh btw 2n-1 isn't just a random number, in fact all numbers have the property that there are 2n-2 numbers that don't have a subset summing to 0 mod n which makes it sort of fascinating" 21:42:06 an interest which I don't share 21:42:21 i would be near it 21:42:51 Too bad the joke in the description doesn't really translate. <-- what is that joke? 21:43:00 Well, it doesn't translate. :p 21:43:08 I can try, of course. 21:43:13 fizzie, you could explain it 21:43:48 It's not much of a joke, really. But, here goes. 21:43:55 "Opintojakson tavoitteena on oppia lentämään laitteella, jossa ei ole purjetta, eikä myöskään konetta.

The device is still called sail-air-engine [literal translation of the components of the Finnish word for sailplane/glider aircraft], as its wing works like a sail." 21:44:24 heh 21:44:56 fizzie, combining sail and engine in one word is quite weird :) 21:45:23 I guess sail-flight-engine would've been more literal. 21:45:41 -!- FireFly[DS] has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer). 21:46:01 The fi:lentokone (literally "flight-engine" or "flight-machine", but the joke works better with "-engine") is the general term for aircraft, they've just added fi:purje ("sail") in front. 21:46:43 fi:kone is quite a generic word; it can be en:engine, or en:machine, or en:device, or whatever. 21:47:14 "kone s 1 engine, apparatus, appliance 2 contrivance 3 machine" says the dictionary. 21:47:26 finnish is so weird 21:47:33 -!- cal153 has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds). 21:47:42 -!- cal153 has joined. 21:47:50 lament, indeed 21:48:00 AnMaster: well interesting is a bit of a technical term :P i say 2n-1 is interesting because 2n-2 isn't, there's a reason to choose just that particular number 21:48:10 it doesn't actually mean this is interesting mathematics 21:48:27 uhu 21:48:34 oklokok, you said it was fascinating even 21:50:17 oh right. true, that's not a technical term, that just means i really think the problem is interesting 21:50:22 most because i've been working on it 21:50:25 *mostly 21:50:58 oklokok, wait, is "interesting" actually a well defined rigorous mathematical term? 21:51:05 :P 21:51:14 no. 21:51:19 oh 21:51:44 oklokok, I always found it funny that "almost all" is actually rigorously defined 21:52:11 ah yeah kinda like "group" is rigorously defined 21:52:21 oklokok, oh? 21:52:31 oh you don't know what a group is 21:52:31 oklokok, I can't see why "group" is funny 21:52:39 Almost all integers between 1 and 1,000,000,000 are prime. 21:52:57 uorygl, I have no idea if that is true or not 21:53:11 uorygl: why would you use the lebesque measure on integers? 21:53:18 Well, "almost all", applied to discrete things, means "all but finitely many", aye? 21:53:21 you wouldn't 21:53:53 uorygl, that is true for composites too! 21:53:58 you would use cardinality as the measure, and it would not be true that almost all elements in that set are prime. 21:54:11 What would you say "almost all" means in that context? 21:55:16 almost all x \in S have property P w.r.t. measure m always means m({x \in S | P(x)}) = 0 21:55:19 eh 21:55:33 *almost all x \in S have property P w.r.t. measure m always means m({x \in S | not P(x)}) = 0 21:56:07 Wikipedia says that "almost all" sometimes means "all but finitely many". 21:56:10 if you leave the measure implicit with integers, it's cardinality, because the restriction of the lebesque measure is identically zero 21:57:13 okay so we'd be using a metric m s.t. m(S) = 0 iff S is finite 21:57:24 *measure 21:57:25 sorry 21:58:08 i don't know such measures 21:58:20 (this is not exactly area) 21:58:32 Are there any restrictions on what's a measure? 21:58:58 If not, m(S) = 0 when S is finite, m(S) = 1 when S is infinite 21:59:09 Maybe the disjoint union of finitely many sets must be the sum. 21:59:17 it has to be additive, if you have two sets with empty intersection, then their union's measure is the sum of their measures 21:59:17 Modulo saying that right. 21:59:32 But it doesn't have to give a measure to every set, right? 21:59:46 m(S) = 0 when S is finite, m(S) is undefined otherwise. :P 21:59:53 no, in a measure space we have a subset of measurable sets, usually 22:00:27 yeah that works, that's probably called the trivial measure 22:00:27 Better: m(S) is the limit as n approaches infinity of (the cardinality of the intersection of S with [-n..n])/(2n) 22:00:39 yeah i actually thought that might be a nice definition 22:00:42 make that lim sup 22:00:52 i think that's additivie 22:00:55 *additive 22:01:05 Hmm, I'm sure I could make it non-additive. 22:01:09 oh well i guess you could just say sets are measurable iff the limit exists 22:01:18 well it has to be additive 22:01:21 to be a measure 22:01:30 I mean if it's lim sup, I'm sure I could find where it's not additive. 22:01:51 also the measure of the empty set needs to be 0, but that's all we require about a measure, i think 22:01:53 ah 22:01:56 Take the set S of all integers n where sin(ln n) > 0, and its complement. 22:02:28 err 22:02:35 first of all what's that set? 22:02:47 okay somethign random 22:02:49 *something 22:02:54 Er, make that sin(ln |n|). 22:03:03 yeah okay you're right 22:03:06 needs to be lim 22:03:23 You've figured out what that set is? 22:03:24 or wait... blergh 22:03:32 maybe tell me why that's a counterexample 22:03:42 Well, do you know what that set looks like? 22:03:49 no 22:03:59 Graph sin(ln n); it's the set of all integers that are below it. 22:04:19 sin(ln |n|), even. 22:05:22 A mental graph will probably work better than an actual one. :P 22:05:40 It's a set where if you zoom out, it still looks pretty much the same. 22:05:53 i think that's additivie <-- read that as "addictive" first time XD 22:06:21 * Sgeo uses Wolfram Alpha 22:06:24 So the thing you're taking the limit of fluctuates between some number and some other number. 22:06:48 What isi it supposed to be? 22:07:16 ah true 22:07:36 The complement of the set will likewise fluctuate, but out of phase; add the two, and you get something that is less than the sum of its parts. 22:07:42 yeah i realized lim sup might not work because of that, i now realize why sin ln works 22:07:50 yep 22:08:02 Sgeo: it's supposed to be what it is, and it is pretty much what it looks like. 22:08:24 It looks like female..>.> 22:08:33 And it looks like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Topologist%27s_sine_curve.svg 22:15:59 Graph sin(ln n); <-- was that supposed to be CAS code for some CAS? 22:16:19 No. 22:16:23 hm 22:16:34 Though I wouldn't be surprised if it were valid CAS code for some CAS. 22:17:06 uorygl, why is sin(ln x) interesting? 22:17:11 it's valid wolframalpha code 22:17:23 oklokok, it isn't valid mathematica code I know 22:17:38 * AnMaster plots the function on his calculator 22:17:47 because it's a nice way to explain why lim sup is not a good measure 22:17:55 *-good 22:18:03 AnMaster: because it's involved in a counterexample to oklokok's claim that using the limit superior in a certain place results in a measure. 22:18:06 who said anything about mathematica 22:18:13 uorygl, oh 22:18:28 uorygl, how does "limit superior" differ from "limit"? 22:18:31 it would make all sets measurable 22:18:38 oklokok, well iirc w|a is based on that syntax? 22:18:46 but it clearly isn't a measure 22:19:10 What's a measure? 22:19:11 AnMaster: the limit superior of sin(x) as x approaches infinity is 1. 22:19:36 uorygl, oh. 22:19:46 AnMaster: essentially, it's the highest value that a function exceeds repeatedly forever. 22:19:47 uorygl, how is limit superior defined then? 22:20:12 * Sgeo needs a tutorial for math :/ 22:20:26 uorygl, what about limsup y=x x→+inf ? 22:20:34 the lim sup of a sequence of numbers is the lim of sups of {xi | i = n,n+1,...} as n goes to infinity 22:20:39 same as normal limit? 22:20:50 AnMaster: I would say that that is positive infinity. 22:21:01 uorygl, same as normal limit then 22:21:06 Yep. 22:21:06 -!- Oranjer has left (?). 22:21:29 for sin you'd take the limit as x goes to infinity of the sups of the sets {sin(y) | y >= x} 22:21:30 This is bound to have some definitions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limit_superior 22:22:03 uorygl, and this sin log thing? 22:22:14 what is it's limit superior? 22:22:27 it's obviously 1 22:22:34 the normal limit I *suspect* would approach 0 22:22:40 i mean on reals 22:22:53 it's not obvious that it's 1 on integers 22:23:36 AnMaster: there's no normal limit for it 22:23:36 The normal limit exists iff the limit superior equals the limit inferior. 22:23:39 oklokok, are there cases where limsup is not defined? 22:23:56 oklokok, hm. for sin(x) there indeed isn't 22:24:09 The limit superior as something approaches infinity is always defined, as long as the function is defined everywhere. 22:24:10 but hm 22:24:27 okay i was gonna say earlier that lim sup and lim inf always exist on reals and lim exists iff lim sup = lim inf, but thought AnMaster wouldn't be interested 22:24:44 oklokok, ah 22:24:46 interesting! 22:24:57 Heck, if the function isn't defined everywhere, you might say that the limit superior is negative infinity. I don't really know. 22:25:20 ah 22:25:21 oh well right they always exist in the extended reals 22:25:35 oklokok, you mean the function must all be completely defined then? 22:25:42 -!- coppro has quit (Quit: I'd love to discuss this, but matters press. Onwards!). 22:25:44 all functions are completely defined 22:25:45 or at least, it might not work if it isn't 22:25:58 oklokok, what is limsup tan(x) x->+inf? 22:26:33 tan is a partial function 22:26:43 oklokok, you mean it isn 22:26:50 isn't* well defined everywhere 22:26:56 ? 22:27:07 but if we skip the parts where it's not defined, then still arbitrarily far away you can find arbitrarily big values 22:27:11 so lim sup = infinity 22:27:35 The Warrigal function isn't completely defined! 22:27:50 AnMaster: that's not what well-defined means, tan just isn't defined there. 22:28:06 oklokok, you just said " all functions are completely defined" 22:28:37 which isn't actually correct it seems, at least not with the definition of function that I heard 22:28:41 well-defined is when we have a definition, but it's wrong, tan's domain is just not the whole R 22:28:43 like ln(x) is not defined for x<0 22:28:56 just like it isn't defined if x is an apple 22:28:57 oklokok, well I was confused by that line " all functions are completely defined" 22:29:00 !! 22:29:20 every function is completely defined *on its domain* 22:29:27 otherwise it's a partial function. 22:30:05 sometimes we call these functions too, and just say "oh it's actually not defined here", i just don't happen to like that 22:30:29 oklokok, to me "function" includes both partial ones and normal ones 22:30:31 if that is wrong 22:30:36 then what is a word for both 22:30:46 it has to be pretty concise 22:30:56 "uorygl: Heck, if the function is ..." <<< obviously you'd define the lim sup of a partial function as the lim sup of the function's restriction on the part of its domain where it's defined. 22:30:56 "functions and partial functions" is not an acceptable answer 22:31:25 Call it an MPF, for maybe-partial function. :P 22:31:34 uorygl, that's silly 22:31:38 but sure 22:31:41 we don't need a word for functions and partial functions, because one is the subset of the other 22:31:42 ... 22:31:44 as silly as oklokok is 22:31:55 oklokok, if one is the subset of the other 22:32:03 oklokok, then " all functions are completely defined" 22:32:04 is false 22:32:10 if you have a function that might be partial, say it's a partial function 22:32:27 oklokok, or do you mean the reverse? 22:32:29 So the sine function is a partial function? 22:32:31 -!- scarf has quit. 22:32:34 that functions are a subset of partial functions? 22:32:42 uorygl, yes. and y=x is too! 22:32:43 no it's not, because it's functions that's a subset of partial functions, it's the subset containing functions that are completely defined on their domain 22:33:02 -!- ais523 has joined. 22:33:09 uorygl, now you see why I took CS instead of math! 22:33:19 uorygl: of course it's a partial function, it's just not a proper partial function ;) 22:33:21 uorygl, we don't do silly things like that 22:33:22 Eh, all this is terminology. 22:33:27 oklokok: ah, of course. 22:33:31 nick changed back by popular demand! 22:33:40 ais523, yay! 22:33:54 ais523, except someone is bound to ask "where is scarf" soon 22:33:55 if I have three different communities of people all yelling at me, what else can I do? 22:33:58 AnMaster: haha 22:34:12 * uorygl decides to be silly by saying that 0 is a positive number and a negative number, but not a proper positive number or a proper negative number. 22:34:24 :D 22:34:29 i like that 22:34:48 uorygl, ooh better idea: a point is a triangle, but not a proper one 22:34:55 (all three corners in the same point) 22:35:07 All real numbers are irrational numbers, but some of them are not proper irrational numbers. 22:35:24 hmm 22:35:27 Hmm. The opposite of "proper" is "degenerate", I believe. 22:35:34 So a point is in fact a degenerate triangle, as is a line segment. 22:35:53 uorygl, now if we just could say that "all integers are negative, but some are not proper negative" :/ 22:36:11 Alas, my intuition says that integers are a closed set. 22:36:24 in the topological sense? 22:36:25 (In fact, they are a closed set. Yay for intuition!) 22:36:32 No, in the intuitive sense. 22:36:48 i don't have an intuition, closed under what operation? 22:37:00 In the intuitive version of the topological sense. 22:37:06 :P 22:37:07 okay 22:37:28 Let's say that for all concepts "blah", "degenerate blah" is the boundary of "blah" and "proper blah" is the interior of "blah". 22:37:39 So every blah is either a degenerate blah or a proper blah. 22:37:45 All integers are degenerate integers. 22:38:48 All tall people are proper tall people, except for the shortest possible person X such that only tall people are taller than X, who is a degenerate tall person. 22:40:17 The surface of a drop of liquid consists of degenerate liquid. 22:40:57 what does closed mean in the topological sense? 22:41:07 AnMaster: the complement is open 22:41:17 oklokok, I don't know that either 22:41:27 assume I know next to nothing about topology 22:41:31 in topology, we just call some subsets open. 22:41:37 All ice is freezing cold, and most ice is proper freezing cold, but ice at its melting point is degenerate freezing cold. Some liquid water is degenerate freezing cold, but none of it is proper freezing cold. 22:41:46 (except that a coffee cup and a doughnut are equivalent) 22:41:52 we have a space containing points, and we say some arbitrary subsets are open 22:42:04 Intuitively speaking, a set is open if it contains none of its boundary. 22:42:05 oklokok, what makes a given subset open? 22:42:11 And a set is closed if it contains all of its boundary. 22:42:12 oh 22:42:18 like (0,4)? 22:42:28 (as opposed to [0,4]) 22:42:34 if so, why didn't you just say it 22:42:37 Right. (0,4) is open and [0,4] is closed. 22:42:47 uorygl, is that all there is to it? 22:42:52 No, not really. 22:42:52 AnMaster: nothing, we can define anything to be open 22:42:59 oklokok, -_- 22:43:10 oklokok, I define closed to be open! 22:43:39 There are, in fact, topological spaces where something is closed if and only if it is open. 22:43:42 * AnMaster leaves cleaning up the mess that caused to oklokok 22:44:05 uorygl, paradox? 22:44:07 In the topological space of integers, every set is both closed and open. 22:44:28 It happens that "closed" and "open" aren't opposites at all in the topological sense. 22:44:56 mhm 22:45:13 uorygl, on the reals I find this hard.. 22:45:36 the natural topology of reals does have nice properties 22:45:47 oklokok, oh? 22:45:48 Another "definition" of openness: a set is open if for every point within the set, that point has a neighborhood that is also within the set. 22:45:51 the same properties the natural topology of every metric space has 22:46:03 uorygl, define neighborhood 22:46:14 uorygl, (that term makes me think of GOL) 22:46:27 Intuitively, a neighborhood is a set containing a point and its immediate surroundings. 22:46:41 in the natural topology of a metric space, a set is closed iff it contains its own boundary 22:47:08 Formally, a neighborhood is a superset of an open set containing a point. 22:47:10 in a general topological space, boundary becomes meaningless 22:47:32 Can't you generally define the boundary as the difference between the interior and the closure? 22:48:11 the boundary is the thing that's not in the interior of the set or the interior of its complement 22:48:12 so yeah 22:48:21 that's how we define it 22:48:34 AnMaster: now, you may notice that every time we try to define openness, we then define the terms we used in terms of openness. Fundamentally, openness is whatever the topological space defines it to be; different topological spaces are different ways of defining openness on a set. 22:48:42 uorygl, I noticed that 22:49:25 uorygl, at least it isn't like the circle being a specific conical section, but when you think about it, a cone is defined in terms of a circle 22:49:25 all the intuition uorygl gave you about topologies is actually just properties the natural topology of a metric space has 22:49:43 (unless there are other ways to define cones that I don't know about) 22:49:51 because in general those need not be true 22:50:05 Really? 22:50:11 I thought they were always true. 22:50:19 well obviously you can just permute the reals and take the topology of the permuted version 22:50:57 oh 22:51:01 Well, if you use one topology for one part of the intuition and another topology for other parts of it, sure. 22:51:19 well umm, "immediate surroundings", that doesn't really mean much 22:51:27 True. 22:51:51 In the real numbers, a point does not have even one surrounding that is immediate. :P 22:51:58 AoC => a set is open iff all its points have an open set around them 22:52:06 what about complex numbers 22:52:09 Seriously? 22:52:12 how is open and closed defined on those? 22:52:25 AnMaster: same way as in R^2, as the product topology of R and R 22:52:41 oklokok, I don't know how open is defined in R² 22:52:54 A set of complex numbers is open if and only if all its vertical and horizontal cross sections are open. 22:52:56 R is a metric space, so we define the natural topology by taking the open balls as a base for the topology 22:53:03 wow ^2 produced ²!!! (^ is a dead key here) 22:53:19 whatever program ensured that happened: I love it 22:53:23 well okay i guess you could also say R^2 is a metric space so we can do the ball thing there too 22:53:28 ais523, ^ 22:53:42 only works for numbers 22:54:20 oh and +- ⁺⁻ 22:57:38 -!- Oranjer has joined. 23:19:49 Quadrescence: WANNA LEARN ABOUT RANGE CONCATENATION GRAMMARS? 8D 23:20:11 I do! 23:20:19 oh ok 23:20:21 so! 23:20:24 yes! 23:20:29 -!- MigoMipo has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 23:20:50 a range concatenationgrammar is basically a context free grammar, but instead of non-terminal symbols you have pattern-matched "function applications" 23:21:09 so it might be best to give you an example 23:21:30 lets consider the language { a^n b^n : n >= 0 } 23:21:38 we could have the start symbol S 23:21:41 and the following rules: 23:21:47 S(e) -> e 23:22:01 which just says if you apply S to the empty string, you get back the empty string 23:22:09 and the rule 23:22:16 S(aXb) -> S(X) 23:22:35 which says if you apply S to something that looks like aXb, where X is a variable, then you get back S applied to X 23:22:54 e.g. S(amb) => S(m) => fail 23:23:06 why the fail? 23:23:14 because theres no rule for S applied to m 23:23:19 just S(e) and S(aXb) 23:23:22 ahh 23:23:32 or more accurately 23:23:44 success is defined as reducing S(...) to the empty string 23:23:55 oh no 23:23:58 so since theres no rule that reduces S(m) to the empty string, its a faulure. 23:24:07 augur, want to learn about music? 23:24:14 anmaster: yes! 23:24:15 I want to learn about music! 23:24:16 meh 23:24:18 too busy 23:24:22 >:( 23:24:35 so for the sentence aaabbb, you have the steps S(aaabbb) => S(aabb) => S(ab) => S(e) => e 23:24:39 so aaabbb must be an S 23:24:40 just wanted to derail the linguistics 23:24:51 AnMaster: this isnt linguistics this is formal language theory 23:25:01 hey AnMaster, what is tempo 23:25:17 you can also generate the language { a^n b^n c^n : n >= 0 } which is not CF 23:25:22 using the following grammar: 23:25:27 S(e) -> e 23:25:31 Oranjer, number of played notes per time unit. Commonly 1/4 notes per minute 23:25:38 and what is a note 23:25:40 S(aXbYcZ) -> S(XYZ) 23:25:54 Is there any reason that I should be learning Scheme over Common Lisp? 23:25:59 Oranjer, uh. How to explain it? 23:26:06 Sgeo: scheme is more elegant 23:26:10 and it has awesomemacros 23:26:10 Oranjer, I assume you are just being silly 23:26:14 Oranjer, but 23:26:35 And no real "standard library" for practical use. Although I don't know if CL has that or not 23:26:36 silly in that I do not know the definition, but I know how it's used? 23:26:40 Oranjer, know what happens when you press one (1) key on a piano? Well one note is played 23:26:45 as far as i can tell, RCGs are practically, not not exactly, Prolog. lol 23:26:50 Oranjer, I don't know definition either 23:27:02 Sgeo: depends on what you mean by standard library. Scheme has a shittonne of standard stuff. 23:27:02 Oranjer, I do know how to read scores however 23:27:20 hm 23:27:29 wait that sounds wrong. what are they called in English now again 23:27:56 written music <=> scores, I believe 23:28:08 yes 23:28:30 Oranjer, just got confused over language there 23:28:34 also, "<=>" <=> "is analogous to" 23:28:50 but 23:28:51 but 23:28:55 but 23:28:57 Oranjer, no <=> means "is equivalent" 23:28:57 i have to understand <=> before i can understand <=> 23:28:58 D: 23:29:04 I know, augur 23:29:07 that's the thing 23:29:07 D: 23:29:26 i had a funky dream 23:29:35 did it break at the seams? 23:29:42 Oh please, tell us of your funky dream :P 23:29:50 noooo! 23:30:20 augur: "<=>" is analogous to "is analogous to" 23:30:23 hahahaha 23:30:38 that i was playing a video game where i was a guy working on a submarine and in order to get around parts of the sub you had to put on these big suits that would act to keep water out and to provide life support and propulsion 23:31:06 Oranjer, it doesn't actually mean that normally 23:31:13 Oranjer, normally it means "is equivalent with" 23:31:23 or iff 23:31:30 but then iff <=> "<=>" 23:31:33 Oranjer: yes but, is '"is analogous to" is analogous to' analogous to '"<=>" is analogous to' 23:31:41 (except grammatically) 23:31:45 no no <-> is iff 23:31:50 <=> is mutually derives! 23:31:54 augur, what? 23:32:04 iff is a single arrow 23:32:09 <-> 23:32:13 but <=> is a double arrow 23:32:27 augur, <=> "is equivalent with" 23:32:27 double arrows are used for other things, for instance, the derives relation in formal language theory 23:32:38 augur: Sounds like a pretty bad submarine if it's full of water :P 23:32:42 augur, in math I mean 23:32:43 ... 23:32:47 in maths 23:32:47 Gregor: all submarines have water in them 23:32:50 ballast tanks, and such 23:33:07 OK, it sounds like a bad submarine if you had to go through ballasts to get to vital chambers X_X 23:33:09 but this one was presumably on its way towards being fucked 23:33:18 so, AnMaster, in these maths of yours, what is the difference between "=" and "<=>"? 23:33:22 augur, x+2 = 4 <=> x=2 23:33:31 ahhh 23:33:32 i also had a dream of some sort involving aliens 23:33:33 augur, you don't write <-> there 23:33:39 Does <=> mean "less than, equal to or greater than"? :P 23:33:43 Gregor, haha 23:33:49 spaceship! 23:33:51 oh, you Gregor! 23:33:58 Actually, D does have such an operator. 23:34:01 It means "comparable" 23:34:06 Oranjer, anyway, = is "is equal" 23:34:19 Oranjer, and equal is not the same as equivalent 23:34:24 oh man, i need some caffeine 23:34:31 im gonna go buy caffeine 23:34:38 Raw, and snort it. 23:34:42 so why can't I say x + 2 = 4 = x = 2, or x + 2 <=> 4 <=> x <=> 2? 23:34:45 Gregor, :D 23:34:46 oh, I get it now 23:34:48 yay 23:34:49 Gregor: if only! 23:35:23 but what if I said ( x+2=4 ) = ( x=2 ) 23:35:24 Oranjer, because 4 = x = 2 and = has the property that you can reoder around it. Which means you get x = 4 = 2 23:35:32 which means 4=2 23:35:35 which is absurd 23:35:45 ( x+2=4 ) = ( x=2 ) ! 23:35:54 It's true in the right modular arithmetic :P 23:35:57 Oranjer, that has no meaning 23:36:04 Gregor, sure but then you need to write that out! 23:36:33 and my client doesn't support the three-bar equal sign thing anyway 23:36:55 just copy and paste it from wikipedia's excellent list of math operators 23:36:58 what about ( x+2<=>4 )<=>( x = 2 ) ? 23:37:10 Oranjer, again I don't know what that means 23:37:28 -!- oklokok has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds). 23:37:39 *oops, the last "=" was supposed to be "<=>" 23:38:00 Oranjer, don't know what it means that way either 23:38:02 well, is x + 2 equivalent to 4? 23:38:11 oh, I get it now 23:38:12 hmmmm 23:38:36 -!- oklokok has joined. 23:38:51 very well, I guess there'd have to be a different symbol for "is equivalent to" and "is equal to" 23:39:07 augur, wikipedia claims both <-> and <=> are used for iff 23:39:10 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_and_only_if 23:40:14 2 ≡ 4 (mod 2) yay 23:40:16 AnMaster: shut your fast 23:40:19 face 23:40:22 :| 23:40:23 bye 23:40:34 Shut your fast face! 23:40:36 augur, well, I have never seen <-> used for iff before 23:41:14 indeed, does it make sense to have a symmetrical symbol for a directed relation? 23:41:29 er? 23:41:38 Oranjer, how is iff directed? 23:41:52 it has a condition, and the result, right? 23:42:38 Oranjer, but if the condition is true then the result is. And if the condition is false, so is the result 23:42:47 thus you could just as well turn it around 23:43:03 in fact <-> makes kind of sense. Since → is implies 23:43:22 and iff <=> → in both directions 23:45:08 so in that latter statement, you're using "<=>" as "is equivalent to"? 23:45:16 Oranjer, yes 23:45:21 okay 23:45:40 it's just a wee bit confusing for me, as I always use it as "is analogous to" 23:45:50 Oranjer, but iff => <=> iirc 23:46:04 and "=>" <=> ? 23:46:21 Oranjer, ? 23:46:33 what does "=>" mean? 23:46:44 forgot the name for it, let me look it up. 23:47:42 Oranjer, taking an example might be best 23:47:49 sure 23:48:00 x = 2 => x^2 = 4 23:48:04 the reverse is not true 23:48:07 -!- tombom has quit (Quit: Leaving). 23:48:10 that is 23:48:26 x^2 = 4 => x = 2 is false 23:48:32 since x could be equal to -2 23:48:43 explicitly one-directional equivalence 23:49:14 Oranjer, yes, in the case above I used it because I got confused over if you could always replace <=> with iff (but the reverse should work) 23:49:35 Oranjer, don't the math teachers at your university use these kind of symbols all the time? 23:49:45 they use iff, not <=> 23:50:17 when I started using "<=>" to mean "is analogous to", I just assumed it was a free (or at least obscurely-used) symbol 23:50:24 Oranjer, mine use omm or <=> (omm "om och endast om", no I'm not sure how that phrase ends up with that abbrev either!) 23:50:31 (and that is Swedish btw) 23:50:53 endast ==(English)==> only? 23:51:01 translate endast 23:51:07 Oranjer, yes 23:51:11 okay 23:51:11 only 23:51:26 Oranjer, or my irc notation of that would be: sv:endast = en:only 23:51:33 ah, okay 23:51:38 Oranjer, which I don 23:51:45 don't* think is used for anything else 23:51:47 ;P 23:52:00 I guess I should have made aware the originating language 23:52:16 endast ==(Swedish --> English)==> only 23:52:56 Oranjer, oh and <=> as "is equivalent" seems to generally be used between equations 23:53:13 especially when writing them on one line 23:53:44 see? my college has enough paper to not have to do that, ha 23:54:05 Oranjer, big enough whiteboards? 23:54:16 Oranjer, also is college <=> university? 23:54:37 and ~ seems to be used for row equivalence by at least one teacher 23:54:37 basically, yeah 23:54:48 "row equivalence"? 23:55:01 Oranjer, he teaches linear algebra 23:55:03 guess 23:55:10 hmmm 23:55:14 -!- kar8nga has joined. 23:55:14 nope, nothing's coming to me 23:55:43 Oranjer, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_of_mathematical_symbols lists it as "row equivalence" amongst other things 23:56:04 that link redirects to an article that doesn't mention that word explicitly 23:56:22 Oranjer, but on that meaning I'm somewhat confused. Generally it is used when row reducing a matrix 23:56:36 but wikipedia says 23:56:38 "A~B means that B can be generated by using a series of elementary row operations on A" 2010-03-07: 00:10:51 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 00:12:46 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 00:25:48 -!- coppro has joined. 00:37:35 o hai 00:38:07 oerjan, yet iff symbolically is merely <-> 00:38:15 a single-lined double arrow 00:39:49 also 00:39:51 CAFFEINE! :D 00:44:48 who was it that suggested lo carb monster 00:48:26 oh, noone here 00:50:33 -!- kar8nga has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 01:05:24 -!- lament has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds). 01:06:52 augur: (ﾉﾟοﾟ)ﾉﾐ★゜・。。・゜゜・。。・゜☆゜・。。・゜゜・。。・゜ 01:07:07 -!- lament has joined. 01:07:11 hahahahaha 01:10:33 wtf is that 01:10:54 beats me, I can't see it 01:11:02 Quadrescence: なぜ絵文字を使いますか。 01:11:21 shiiiiiiit 01:11:42 何？ 01:12:02 I have no idea what you're saying. 01:12:39 Japanese-script-using failure. 01:13:07 Fortunately I don't know Japanese. 01:17:23 Then why are you using 01:17:29 JIS art? 01:17:30 :P 01:17:43 -!- MizardX has quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds). 01:25:20 pikhq: because i speak japanese 01:25:32 Quadrescence: 本当に？ 01:25:38 yes 01:26:47 でも、「絵文字」を知らない。 01:27:46 Hrm. ...

11:35:35 without mutexes or such I mean 11:36:14 you do have cmpxchg8b 11:36:29 and maybe lock prefixes work for 8-byte accesses 11:36:34 olsner, yes, but that doesn't help for plain read or write 11:36:37 afaik 11:36:53 olsner, what if you want to read without changing the value, but want to do so atomically 11:38:29 olsner, for the use case I consider, any sort of mutexes or such just have way too much overhead 11:39:16 and collisions are extremely likely. 11:42:25 olsner, the use case is async threaded funge. And specifically it's funge space. Assuming we have (part of it) implemented as a static non-sparse array, and the rest of it as a tree structure or hash table, then it should be possible I think to only require locking for the the non-static part 11:42:46 and since most programs operate around origo, this should help quite a bit 11:42:56 the issue is how to handle 64-bit funge on 32-bit systems 11:43:28 looks like you need cmpxchg8b - if you just use the same value for the comparison and the exchange, you'll get the current value read back into edx:eax ... not sure how to do writing easily though (except spinning until you get two consecutive exchanges in between another writer) 11:43:39 hm 11:43:45 *lock cmpxchg8b, that is 11:44:04 sounds somewhat messy but okay 11:44:22 I guess atomically writing or reading the native word size on both x86 and x86_64 should be trivial? 11:44:51 iirc, simple memory transfers in the native word size are always atomic 11:45:28 which could mean that 64-bit access in 32-bit mode *on 64-bit hardware* is also atomic 11:45:36 olsner, how backwards 11:45:48 but what about the actual MMU and system bus and so on 11:45:59 isn't there a possibility of that causing a mess there? 11:46:28 olsner, and can you do 32-bit atomic reads, writes and CAS on x86_64 in 64-bit mode? 11:46:53 that is, without causing it to operate on 32 extra bits you don't want to touch 11:47:13 it does get messy in the rest of the system, but there are synchronization protocols for that, like making sure that only one cpu "owns" memory for write access at any time 11:47:36 olsner, you mean cache coherency and such? 11:47:44 yes, exactly... it also gets extra messy with NUMA, if you want to do atomic stuff to another cpu:s memory 11:47:59 olsner, I don't own a numa system, so I can't test 11:48:10 oh btw, is L1 data cache coherrent? 11:48:37 iirc I read somewhere there are some restrictions on L1 instruction cache, but I have no idea about L1 data cache 11:48:54 iirc, recent AMD multi-core systems are all numa, they split up the memory between the cpu:s 11:50:19 olsner, I have a 64-bit sempron that is not SMP or multicore, plus a core2duo system 11:50:31 so only the latter allows me to test this 11:51:18 olsner, btw, do you happen to know any sort of concurrent-access hash table or balanced tree thingy? 11:51:26 RCU seems to have a high update overhead 11:51:56 testing doesn't prove the absence of bugs though... what you want to do is get to the bottom of which guarantees you actually have according to the x86 specs :) 11:52:11 multiple readers, and preferably "multiple writers-in-different-parts" should be supported 11:52:45 olsner, of course. But testing is required to see that I didn't mess up something 11:53:24 also implementing this won't happen straight away. Consider the current stage early investigation of what possibilities I have for it 11:53:43 -!- MigoMipo has joined. 11:54:57 olsner, also how does out of order execution affect this sort of things 11:55:08 hrrm 11:55:27 well that shouldn't be a problem unless it splits up a single read or write 11:56:50 and the LOCK prefix seems to force a memory barrier according to AMD docs at least 11:57:27 some care will be required, to say the least 11:58:25 olsner, of course 11:58:46 not sure if any of it will cause problems, but you best prove that it won't :P 11:59:27 olsner, also I suspect that 64-bit cells would be faster than 32-bit cells, due to less data being in each cache line -> less chance of two threads fighting over same cache line 12:00:25 for "normal" funge 64-bit cells are somewhat slower than 32-bit cells, on x86_64. Most likely for the same (or rather, opposite) reason 12:00:39 s/for the same/due to the same/ 12:06:04 olsner, it seems LOCK XCHG can be used for stores 12:06:49 I guess to optimise this, the funge *implementation* should self modify to only use it in case of multiple threads 12:06:58 XD 12:07:06 does xchg work for 64-bit words though? 12:08:02 hm good point *opens another pdf* 12:08:59 olsner, there is an 64-bit form 12:09:09 and there is nothing saying that LOCK prefix doesn't work for it 12:09:16 that is on x86-64 though 12:09:24 not sure about 64-bit on 32-bit 12:11:28 -!- MizardX has joined. 12:12:26 olsner, what I can't figure out is if lock xchg is required if you don't care about the data being visible right way 12:12:56 specifically, what if you do a normal write, then another cpu does a normal write to the same cache line, but not to the same specific address 12:13:21 will the first write get lost if it wasn't flushed to main memory yet 12:13:33 I suppose it shouldn't... 12:16:03 AnMaster: I just went and wrote a JSON parser in Forth, because I could not think of anything more sensible. I'm classifying this as your fault too. 12:16:08 I think it's set up so that it won't be cached in more than one place if anyone writes 12:17:10 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined. 12:20:14 fizzie, ? 12:20:46 fizzie, now write a FORTH-to-JSON serialiser and deserialiser 12:20:57 alternatively, use xml instead of json 12:20:59 -!- MissPiggy has joined. 12:21:10 in both cases the result is something that should never have existed 12:21:34 olsner, hm 12:23:01 I wonder what mmap()ing /dev/mem does 12:23:10 I don't dare test that though 12:24:00 mmap:ing /dev/mem sounds like a sensible way to use it 12:24:11 har 12:24:16 address space is usually larger than the amount of physical memory anyway 12:24:18 olsner, it is a char device, not a block device 12:24:34 which makes me think it can't be used that way 12:24:53 AnMaster: Forth is a bit too low-level for "sensible" serialization to any structured format. There's cells, floating-point values and blocks of memory; that's about it. (And of course no run-time type information anywhere.) I could of course serialize some custom-defined structures into JSON, but... 12:25:16 fizzie, well, write a FORTH interpreter that reads the program fro ma JSON format then! 12:25:28 from a* 12:27:20 What I have now parses JSON into (type, data) pairs, where the types map mostly to JSON types (bool, int, float, string, array, object) and data is two cells (the value 0 or -1 for bool, a signed-integer cell for int, a float for a float, a pointer-length pair for a string, a pointer-length pair for an array and a pointer to unbalanced binary tree "string => json-value" map for an object). 12:28:02 fizzie, I didn't know Forth had pairs 12:28:06 AnMaster: the man page for mem links to mmap :) 12:28:20 olsner, mem(4)? 12:28:21 not here 12:28:35 AnMaster: It's not a native pair, of course; just a memory block the size of three cells. 12:28:40 SEE ALSO 12:28:41 chown(1), mknod(1), ioperm(2) 12:28:42 is all 12:28:53 hmm, probably got a different manpage that, it was mem(7D) 12:29:03 olsner, I don't have mem(7D) 12:29:11 I don't even have 7D at all 12:29:41 olsner, what weird OS is it? 12:29:49 SunOS at least has a 7D section. 12:29:51 (For devices.) 12:29:57 when googling, the only 7D I can find is indeed SunOS 12:30:01 I googled, so that wasn't even linux 12:30:04 ah 12:30:21 but it'd be screwed up not to be able to mmap it :) 12:30:39 olsner, you could use normal fseek and such on it 12:30:57 yeah, but how irksome 12:32:05 You can mmap /dev/mem, according to kernel sources: 12:32:07 * capabilities for /dev/mem, /dev/kmem and similar directly mappable character 12:32:07 * devices 12:32:07 * - permits shared-mmap for read, write and/or exec 12:32:07 * - does not permit private mmap in NOMMU mode (can't do COW) 12:32:07 * - no readahead or I/O queue unplugging required 12:32:40 mhm 12:32:56 fizzie, what file is that from? 12:33:05 fs/char_dev.c 12:33:11 also mmaping a char device seems just backwards to me 12:33:27 and well, I have no clue what the heck readahead would *mean* on /dev/mem 12:34:26 fizzie, also, iirc /dev/mem is restricted these days to only allow BIOS and PCI space or such (needed for X) 12:34:36 well, it's a kernel option 12:34:45 pretty sure I have it turned on 12:34:51 Yes, I seem to remember reading a description like that. 12:35:04 and I don't even have a /dev/kmem 12:35:08 for some unknown reason 12:35:32 further, I wonder what grepping /dev/mem would do 12:35:39 I don't want to actually try that either 12:36:09 man mem says "Examining and patching is likely to lead to unexpected results when read-only or write-only bits are present." 12:36:34 which I guess refers to the page flags 12:37:18 "CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM: -- If this option is switched on, the /dev/mem file only allows userspace access to PCI space and the BIOS code and data regions. This is sufficient for dosemu and X and all common users of /dev/mem. If in doubt, say Y." 12:38:48 fizzie, and I presume /dev/kmem can be turned off elsewhere? 12:40:06 Possibly. Or it might be that it's just not generated by default nowadays and you have to manually make the device node if you want it. I'm not sure I want to start source-diving for it. 12:40:47 fizzie, my laptop which is on an older kernel has /dev/kmem 12:40:54 but then it is also on a distro generic kernel 12:40:58 unlike my desktop 12:41:57 I don't seem to have /dev/kmem either on this desktop. 12:43:06 fizzie, strange, om my laptop I also have /dev/oldmem 12:43:17 $ls -l /dev/*mem 12:43:17 crw-r----- 1 root kmem 1, 2 2009-07-25 23:32 /dev/kmem 12:43:17 crw-r----- 1 root kmem 1, 1 2010-03-05 11:17 /dev/mem 12:43:18 crw-rw---- 1 root root 1, 12 2010-03-05 11:17 /dev/oldmem 12:43:30 whatever that is 12:44:38 grepping sources on there turns up just one hit 12:44:41 ./include/linux/crash_dump.h:extern ssize_t copy_oldmem_page(unsigned long, char *, size_t, 12:44:45 and that doesn't seem relevant 12:44:54 oh wait that is just headers 12:44:55 not sources 12:45:40 hm 12:45:42 #ifdef CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP 12:45:42 [12] = { "oldmem", 0, &oldmem_fops, NULL }, 12:45:42 #endif 12:45:49 from drivers/char/mem.c 12:47:09 There seems to be a CONFIG_DEVKMEM flag, I just didn't notice it in the configura-a-tron. 12:47:26 fizzie, "configura-a-tron"? 12:47:36 make menuconfig, or such. 12:47:41 fizzie, I meant the spelling 12:47:43 not the meaning 12:47:53 -!- oklokok has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 12:47:53 "Say Y here if you want to support the /dev/kmem device.

(I'm sure that the outputs from a real sound card would be a different thing.) 13:28:01 Also, I could get multichannel sound out from the iBook through that thing. It's just that with only two speakers connected to the amplifier, the benefits of that are a bit theoretical. 13:39:30 fizzie, does the amplifier beat a sb live? 13:40:26 I have no idea about that, but at least it's bound to be reasonably good, as opposed to the sort of random motherboard-integrated stuff I otherwise have. 13:40:39 I did say that a real sound card might have also helped. 13:40:45 well yes 13:40:55 I was just trying to compare it to my "real soundcard" 13:41:57 I am not aware of any benchmarks, really. 13:42:17 It's a harman/kardon AVR-147; the manufacturer is reasonably well-known. 13:43:03 "A 24-Bit/twin-core Cirrus Logic CS 49510 DSP processor with 32-bit post processor and 192kHz/24-bit D/A conversion", say the marketing hype, but of course you never know. 13:43:42 And given that it's generally just 16-bit 48/44.1 kHz digital stuff that gets sent over the s/pdif link, I'm not sure how much that matters. 13:45:23 heh 13:47:20 I'm not even sure if the S/PDIF link supports all that. The standard sample resolution for s/pdif seems to be 20 bits, and 24-bit samples are a bit of a hack. 13:50:24 heh 13:50:30 only 24 bits? ;P 13:51:23 it should be represented as an accurate physics model of the source using numbers from R or something! 13:52:05 The owner's manual is silent about whether it supports the s/pdif 24-bit thing, but at least the straight 2-channel PCM digital input "only" goes up to 96 kHz sample rates. 13:53:55 It does support decoding the 5.1 surround DTS 96/24 format, which technically speaking is 24 bits and 96 kHz, but that involves some compression, I think. 13:55:20 I am a bit doubtful whether the alsa drivers would know how to stick 96 kHz 24-bit samples out of the pipe anyway, even if it supported that. 13:56:21 fun... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_join redirects to thread, and that doesn't explain what thread join is... 13:58:55 Quick history-browsing seems to suggest that it didn't explain joins back when the redirect was made, either. 13:59:04 indeed 14:20:44 bored 14:21:15 cheater, watch videos about technological singularity: http://www.youtube.com/user/singist 14:22:46 "This would be cleaner in C++ with templates." <-- shudder, this is from a README of a library in C 14:22:57 also I can't imagine how it would be cleaner: 14:23:06 "The cleanest way to use these routines is probably to define the stack node type with an initial AO_t link field, so that the conversion between the link-field pointer and the stack element pointer is just a compile-time cast.

No it isn't a pointer. 16:43:00 as in, strongly inaccessible cardinals allow you to put models of ZFC inside each other, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grothendieck_universe 16:43:02 oh wait, nvm, figured it out 16:43:41 imho zfc is pretty shitty 16:45:40 dunno why i just love the huge list of them on wikipedia <-- link? 16:45:43 i am totally underqualified to hold that position though 16:46:26 -!- benuphoenix has joined. 16:46:35 alise_, since: Large cardinal (Redirected from List of large cardinals) 16:46:41 and that contains no such list 16:46:46 I guess it is elsewhere? 16:47:07 see top of article redirected to 16:47:08 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_large_cardinal_properties 16:47:13 ah 16:47:14 -!- benuphoenix has left (?). 16:50:49 I should formulate my own set theory so that it can be laughed at how horrible it is 16:51:07 Good morrow. 16:51:55 pikhq, intentional typo? 16:51:57 !(exists x. x in {}) seems like a reasonable start 16:52:02 no 16:52:06 intentional untypo 16:52:27 which is 16:52:49 -!- tombom__ has joined. 16:53:01 !(exists x. {x} subset-of {}) 16:53:18 then 16:53:23 forall x. x superset-of {} 16:55:30 AnMaster: actually i think in is more fundamental than subset 16:55:42 -!- tombom_ has quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds). 16:55:54 x subset-of y := forall z, z in y -> z in x 16:56:21 although that requires implication be something other than subset 16:56:25 otherwise we have a circularity 17:00:21 intentional untypo? 17:00:24 err 17:00:27 <-- ? 17:00:28 I meant 17:00:38 AnMaster: actually i think in is more fundamental than subset <-- what is? equals? 17:00:39 well could be 17:01:09 x subset-of y := forall z, z in y -> z in x <-- ... notation please... 17:01:21 I can't read it 17:01:22 :P 17:01:40 yes, you ca 17:01:42 *can 17:04:05 no 17:04:18 -!- alise has joined. 17:04:23 as i said before i was cut off 17:04:31 and being obstructive in your communication will just result in me... not communicating 17:05:30 -!- tombom__ has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds). 17:06:00 -!- tombom__ has joined. 17:06:13 alise, was it ∀z(z ∈ y → z ∈ x) 17:06:14 ? 17:06:28 yes. as you well knew 17:06:40 and it turns out, you know english! 17:06:44 alise, but since you defined <- to be "in", shouldn't -> be "in" the other way? 17:07:12 -!- alise__ has joined. 17:07:23 so, at this point is where i just stop bothering to talk as you do not understand ad hoc notation 17:07:31 alise_, there is xemacs for windows. There is M-x set-input-mode TeX 17:07:34 it does wonders 17:07:49 alise__, I find ad hoc notation confusing and hard to read 17:07:53 *shrug* 17:08:02 bbl 17:08:08 -!- alise_ has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 17:08:26 as does your mother 17:08:58 alise__, that one doesn't even make sense 17:09:48 I mean, "your mother 'finds ad hoc notation confusing and hard to read'" is not even an insult is it? 17:10:21 that's what she said! 17:10:28 oerjan, :P 17:11:04 -!- alise has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 17:11:48 considering how bad autoconf code is, I wonder what autoconf itself is like 17:11:52 ais523, any idea? 17:12:06 AnMaster: likewise bad 17:12:18 ais523, shouldn't it be even worse logically? 17:12:27 the code generated by autoconf is much better than the code of autoconf itself 17:12:28 considering it can generate such messy configure output 17:12:34 ais523, whoa 17:13:05 I put 17:13:22 ? 17:13:28 he put 17:13:29 *I put quite a lot of effort into learning how autoconf itself works, to use it properly; it seems GNU didn't 17:13:40 sorry, touchpad error deleted most of my message after I'd already written it 17:13:58 ais523, no undo in your client? 17:14:19 AnMaster: doesn't help after you've already pressed return 17:14:22 race condition 17:14:28 I deleted it /as/ I was pressing return 17:14:46 ah 17:17:53 -!- hodyna has left (?). 17:18:02 -!- alise__ has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 17:20:28 btw that new "swap as compressed pages in ram" thingy seems really interesting 17:20:44 and quite a lot faster than normal swap with a lot of the benefit 17:21:00 experimental staging driver in 2.6.33 it seems 17:27:41 -!- hiato has joined. 17:40:05 -!- MigoMipo has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 17:47:51 -!- alise has joined. 17:50:55 -!- Wareya has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds). 17:52:07 -!- jcp has joined. 17:55:34 -!- MigoMipo has joined. 17:58:16 i love this little machine 17:59:07 -!- Quadrescence has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds). 18:00:48 alise, dpi? 18:02:49 the screen is not great. it's very TN (colour distortion is pretty much unavoidable). but 1366x768 @ 13" = 120 ppi 18:03:09 13.6" = 115 ppi, so whatever the exact size it's a good ppi 18:03:44 alise, aren't most monitors TN? 18:03:59 yes. but it's very TN i.e. not a very high quality TN 18:04:04 ah 18:04:15 i.e. if you look at it even slightly off the proper place you get dark to light gradient over the whole thing 18:04:28 and if you look at it a bit too much from above than you should it's all white-washed 18:04:31 alise, I think my desktop is TN but rather high quality TN, while my thinkpad is lower quality TN 18:04:42 but from a good angle - and those are the most common angles to look at a laptop from - it's fine 18:04:44 though, the colour doesn't change that quickly for the laptop 18:04:54 this thing is almost certainly worse than a thinkpad display 18:05:04 but consider, thinkpad costs like a thousand and a bit pounds 18:05:13 this costs something like £475 18:05:22 -!- Asztal has joined. 18:05:35 spoiler: it's not very fast, though; single core 1.2ghz and no virtualisation in sight. well at least i think it's single core 18:05:35 alise, I can see line in supposedly "smooth" gradients on my thinkpad (such as in gimp colour picker). Not so on my desktop 18:05:48 beats an Atom any day 18:05:48 I'm not sure if that is due to the monitor or the intel graphics 18:06:39 alise, also thinkpads are great but the greatness was not spent on the speakers at all, and only a little bit of it on the display 18:07:08 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Good night). 18:07:30 alise, iirc thinkpad uses some magnesium cage thingy internally though. And the keyboard has drainage holes (you can see them when looking at the laptop from below 18:07:31 ) 18:07:54 (beats me why they end up right below it, shouldn't that mean it could flow to the battery and fry things badly? 18:07:55 ) 18:10:06 -!- alise has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds). 18:10:10 -!- kar8nga has quit (Remote host closed the connection). 18:13:38 -!- alise has joined. 18:13:54 alise, see log 18:14:14 also that connection must be annoying 18:14:17 still in a taxi? 18:14:22 seen the logs 18:14:23 also, no 18:14:30 turns out taxis stop sometimes :( 18:14:35 alise, how boring 18:15:03 it's just that this place has no interwebs 18:15:17 also, there goes my plans for a taxi based perpetum mobile :( 18:17:37 -!- Quadrescence has joined. 18:19:22 alise, this is somewhat amusing to read: http://llvm.org/docs/ReleaseNotes.html#whatsnew 18:19:33 (yeah I know they haven't yet filled it in... but still) 18:19:48 ... is really a popular feature it seems 18:21:29 argh oerjan isn't here any more 18:21:38 alise, why argh? 18:22:08 wanted to quiz him about mathqs :P 18:23:28 alise, lucky him who left 18:25:33 hm... FAUST "Functional AUdio STream"... What are the chances of that name NOT being designed to fit the acronym? 18:25:57 alise, ^ 18:26:09 Low. 18:27:08 So I wrote what I wanted in TeXmacs but it can't copy to Unicode. 18:27:31 alise, TeXmacs? Isn't that some weird type setting thingy that isn't compatible with LaTeX? 18:27:48 I tried it and found it irritating to say the least 18:28:14 It isn't weird and it can export to LaTeX. 18:28:24 true 18:28:33 alise, from what I remember it rendered text blurry when editing 18:28:56 probably perfect for you with your no-hinting mania though 18:29:10 (pdfs never turn out that blurry) 18:29:32 Not blurry, and the PDFs look exactly the same depending on your font settings. 18:29:32 (well, I mean, pdf with text in... pdf with a photo of blurry text could of course) 18:29:45 It looks exactly like the .ps files that TeX generates, in fact. 18:29:57 huh 18:30:32 Also, I use slight hinting on linux 18:30:45 What's the LaTeX for the bold, non-italic set names used as variables> 18:30:46 *variables? 18:30:46 okay 18:30:52 Like \forall x \in X 18:30:56 what do you enclose X in? 18:31:02 alise, hm *tries to remember* 18:31:43 \mathbb N? 18:32:09 alise, I couldn't remember, so I checked what lyx did when I clicked the button for it :P 18:32:12 \mathbb is the doublestruck style, if you want that. 18:32:18 \mathbb{N} 18:32:19 No. 18:32:29 If you just want non-italic bold, that'd be mathbf. 18:32:36 Thanks. 18:32:44 fizzie, bold, set -> blackboard bold in my parser 18:32:48 No, that is italic for single-letter names. 18:32:49 not sure how that happened 18:33:37 alise, what fizzie said produces bold here? 18:33:46 well, in lyx preview at least 18:34:26 Sigh. 18:34:58 alise, I don't know what you want then :/ 18:36:20 Anyway whatever. 18:38:45 -!- Sgeo has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds). 18:40:14 -!- kar8nga has joined. 18:40:14 Whatever indeed; though I have to note that for me \mathbf{X} (even for single-letter strings) certainly produces non-italic bold; I had to use amsmath's \boldsymbol{} recently to get some homework answers compatible with the homework questions, which used italic-bold style for vectors and matrices. 18:40:49 Well, the ... is in italic-formatted stuff. 18:40:58 alise, ? 18:41:10 you use \mathbf{foo} *inside* 18:41:43 works for me 18:41:51 DESU 18:41:58 MissPiggy, ? 18:42:14 it was between those that it was supposed to be inserted 18:42:17 not between two of them 18:42:43 anyway, isn't display style different? $or something ? 18:43:27 is set apart, is not 18:44:01 x is not the recommended way of doing displaymath in LaTeX, though. 18:44:05 It's the older TeX-style. 18:44:12 aha 18:44:17 yeah; amsmath has a bunch of better options 18:44:28 well I'm not old enough to having used TeX directly 18:44:30 only LaTeX 18:44:35 No, I mean, just plain LaTeX has better options; is not even officially part of LaTeX. 18:44:38 \[ ..$ is. 18:44:45 fizzie, indeed 18:45:07 oh, I did not know that 18:45:10 no one in their right mind uses just plain TeX 18:45:44 "While the double dollar sign (still) works in LaTeX, it is not part of the "official" LaTeX command set (in fact, most books on LaTeX don't even mention it) and its use is discouraged. Use the bracket pair "$", "$" instead." -- though that's from a guide. I think I saw it in a more reputable source too, though. 18:45:47 (with exception of Knuth and those that implement LaTeX, ConTeXt and such) 18:46:05 fizzie, what is the reason for that though? 18:46:09 -!- user2 has joined. 18:46:20 My guess is that it involves equation numbering or such 18:46:53 -!- hiato has quit (Quit: leaving). 18:47:30 Another guide says that can lead to wrong spacing in "some situations". And yet another says that $..$ is preferred because the ending tag is different, which helps in error checking. It will still do close to the same thing. 18:51:19 fizzie, but then why hasn't been replaced to help error checking as well? 18:51:49 LaTeX does define \( ..$$ as a replacement for$ .. \$, but I haven't seen anyone seriously advocate the use of that. 18:52:20 -!- user2 has left (?). 18:53:00 * AnMaster is irritated at llvm.org for not providing a list with all sub projects such as clang and klee 18:53:16 the project using llvm list seems to be "non-llvm.org based projects" 18:57:26 They seem to call those things sub-projects, but there's not much of a list to be seen. 18:57:47 fizzie, I said sub project above yeah 18:57:51 Ah. 18:57:57 fizzie, klee and clang are the two I know about 18:57:58 Well, http://llvm.org/docs/ReleaseNotes.html has a sort of a list in the status update section. 18:58:12 fizzie, yes sure, but I want to see the full list, and any that aren't yet there 18:58:26 also looking at the svn ( http://llvm.org/viewvc/llvm-project/ ) doesn't help much 18:58:32 for example, cfe turns out to be clang 18:59:12 ah http://compiler-rt.llvm.org/ exists at least 18:59:26 fizzie, trying to do a zone transfer on l
