04:07:19 <uorygl> Spanish sentence: La rata que el gato que el perro mordió persiguió escapó.
04:07:29 <uorygl> Its Google translation: The rat the cat the dog bit chased escaped.
04:07:54 <uorygl> The impression ends there, however.
04:08:00 <uorygl> Back to Spanish: La rata, el gato al perro mordió perseguido escapado.

04:08:22 <uorygl> That is kind of impressive, actually.
04:09:26 <uorygl> That Spanish sentence actually means "The rat, the cat bit the dog that had (been) chased and escaped."

09:39:54 -!- MigoMipo has joined.

09:55:13 <Phantom_Hoover> And then there are things like Haskell.
09:55:40 <Sgeo> Haskell has an assignment operator. It's just more.. permanent
09:56:03 <Phantom_Hoover> It's more of a definition operator, really...
09:56:39 <Sgeo> I should probably sleep

10:06:42 <AnMaster> Sgeo, C has a fairly straight forward assignment
10:07:13 <AnMaster> well it makes copies if you consider the variable itself. You copy the pointer and so on.

13:43:51 <oerjan> AnMaster: yeah
13:44:14 <oklopol> you're more noise sensitive than the average human?
13:44:20 <oerjan> ok, a little headache too
13:44:41 <oerjan> i think so
13:46:04 <oklopol> i've never met anyone with as low a threshold for early pain as myself
13:51:16 -!- ineiros has joined.
13:54:05 <AnMaster> <oklopol> you're more noise sensitive than the average human? <-- I am. Due to better than average hearing (had this tested many years ago)
13:54:22 <AnMaster> especially at the typical "background noise" frequencies
13:54:55 * oerjan isn't sure DMM's explanation of why three satellites is needed is correct
13:55:11 <AnMaster> oerjan, oh? what would be wrong in it?
13:55:41 <oerjan> because you don't actually get the distance from the signal of a single satellite, i think, unless your receiver also has an atomic clock
13:55:58 <oerjan> you only get the _difference_ between the distances to the satellites
13:56:02 <AnMaster> hm
13:56:08 <oklopol> my hearing is average
13:56:19 <AnMaster> oerjan, and are all the GPS satellites geostationary?
13:56:26 <AnMaster> or do they broadcast their own position?
13:56:28 <oerjan> none of them afaik
13:56:34 <oerjan> they broadcast their position
13:56:51 <oklopol> also our dog has an awesome hearing but she's not that sensitive to loud noises
13:56:58 <oklopol> so i don't think there's necessarily a connection
13:58:16 <AnMaster> oklopol, different species. Could have a lot higher inherent noise insensitivity
13:58:40 <AnMaster> oklopol, and there are other factors than just how well you hear when considering noise sensitivity
13:58:55 <AnMaster> but I would maintain that (for humans at least) it is one of the factors
13:58:57 <oklopol> okay then; a friend of mine has a much better hearing than me, but is not at all sensitive to loud noises
13:59:23 <oerjan> i expect a lot of my noise sensitivity is psychological, anyway
13:59:30 <AnMaster> oklopol, better hearing at which freqs?
13:59:55 -!- ineiros_ has quit (Quit: AARGH).
13:59:58 <oklopol> like doesn't have to wear ear plugs in concerts whereas my ears start hurting if i use earphones for too long (good ones)
14:00:10 <AnMaster> oerjan, yes but if you are noise sensitive then hearing more noises than most people (due to better hearing) will only make it worse
14:00:17 <AnMaster> thus there is a connection in some sense
14:00:39 <oklopol> AnMaster: not tested, i just know i have an average hearing, and he can tell species of motorcycles by their sound
14:00:40 <oerjan> i'm _immensely_ annoyed by coughing and sniffling
14:00:53 <oklopol> or maybe i should say races
14:01:22 <AnMaster> oerjan, that depends on how loud. Some people are worse than others when it comes to coughing.
14:01:22 <oklopol> i'm annoyed by nothing
14:01:53 <oklopol> ever
14:02:06 <oerjan> AnMaster: loudness is almost immaterial for me there
14:02:13 <AnMaster> hm
14:02:15 <oklopol> well at least with humans, i get insanely annoyed with machines all the time tho
14:04:59 <oklopol> err well actually i guess i have a better than average hearing
14:05:12 <oklopol> but i don't have a phenomenal hearing
14:05:49 <oklopol> i think one of my ears got the second best possible score when it was last checked
14:05:54 <oklopol> and the other one was perfect
14:06:02 -!- endebrito has left (?).
14:06:44 <oklopol> score, as in i didn't hear the highest note
14:07:08 <oerjan> ah, "Three satellites might seem enough to solve for position, since space has three dimensions and a position near the Earth's surface can be assumed. However, even a very small clock error multiplied by the very large speed of light[23].the speed at which satellite signals propagate.results in a large positional error. Therefore receivers use four or more satellites to solve for the receiver's location and time."
14:09:00 <oklopol> i don't exactly believe in light, has anyone actually SEEN light, like ever?
14:09:39 <oklopol> also i was asked to give a seminar on esoteric programming languages
14:10:15 <oklopol> (and on cellular automata)

14:13:50 <oklopol> although i know the topology stuff from the theory of tiling

14:14:20 <oklopol> formal languages
14:14:22 <Quadrescence> Well I kind of do
14:14:31 <Quadrescence> I like it when it's practical.
14:14:37 <oklopol> oh okay
14:16:41 <oklopol> i like it when the problems are interesting, but i guess i prefer it if the results are useless
14:17:48 <Quadrescence> At heart I'm someone who likes things to be implemented.
14:18:21 <Quadrescence> If the theory of computability can help me determine if something is implementable, great.
14:18:47 <oklopol> okay
14:22:41 <AnMaster> okay wtf. filling out a form has a question for age, with ranges like "31-40", "41-50" and so on. However there is "younger than 20" and "21-31". No option for exactly 20...
14:23:28 <oklopol> are 20-yo's supposed to be filling it?
14:23:40 <oklopol> what's it about
14:23:41 <oerjan> AnMaster: clearly it was written by people with a specific hate against 20 year old pedants
14:23:42 <AnMaster> oklopol, well yes.
14:23:59 <oklopol> are you sure there isn't a separate form for 20-yo's?
14:24:06 <Quadrescence> AnMaster: WTF someone made a mistake
14:24:08 <AnMaster> oklopol, it is from my university, they are doing some survey on how you travel there. Like "by bus" "by car", ...
14:24:40 <oerjan> Quadrescence: your keyboard is hung up, hth
14:24:43 <AnMaster> oklopol, and I'm pretty sure it is aimed at 20 years old yes. Surely they know how old I am at the university.
14:25:08 <Quadrescence> "less than 20" was probs supposed to be "20 or less
14:25:09 <Quadrescence> "
14:25:14 <oerjan> AnMaster asking what hth means: shut up
14:25:28 <AnMaster> oerjan, I didn't ask...
14:26:23 <oklopol> today there was this paper where they said it's in RE to check if a tile set has at least one tiling and all its tilings have exactly the periods (0, km) and (km, 0) for all k \in N
14:26:28 <oklopol> i was like wtf
14:26:56 <AnMaster> oklopol, I assume that tile has some very specific meaning here?
14:26:57 <oklopol> oh umm and their sums
14:27:05 <oklopol> WANG tiles
14:27:09 <AnMaster> XD
14:27:13 <Quadrescence> LOL WANG
14:27:18 <oerjan> um well you can emulate turing machines using tiles, so RE results or not exactly unexpected
14:27:21 <oklopol> you fill Z^2 with tiles, each tile has a color on each side
14:27:22 <oerjan> *are
14:27:30 <oklopol> and the colors have to match
14:27:33 <oklopol> oerjan: but it's not in RE!
14:27:37 <oklopol> it's harder
14:27:46 <oerjan> oh, hm
14:27:55 <AnMaster> yeah even I know RE isn't TC
14:28:00 <oklopol> consider T1 \union T2 for some weird-ass set T2 and T1 which is m-periodic
14:28:12 <oerjan> oklopol: was this for _any_ set of tiles or a specific class?
14:28:19 <oklopol> any set of tiles
14:28:39 <AnMaster> okay what are tiles in this context really?
14:28:50 <oklopol> you fill Z^2 with tiles, each tile has a color on each side
14:28:52 <oklopol> and the colors have to match
14:29:07 <oklopol> like top and bottom have to be the same if a tile is on top of another
14:29:17 <AnMaster> hm
14:29:33 <oerjan> wait are these tiles squares?
14:29:37 <oklopol> yes
14:29:50 <oerjan> so not jigsaw puzzles here :D
14:29:58 <AnMaster> oklopol, sounds like a game I remember playing ages ago, but there it wasn't Z² but a 6x6 gird
14:30:06 <oklopol> no you can translate jigsaw to wang
14:30:11 <oklopol> err
14:30:14 <oklopol> sorry wang to jigsaw
14:30:19 <oerjan> thought so
14:30:27 <oklopol> and reasonable jigsaw to wang
14:30:46 <oerjan> the other way would require the jigsaw pieces to have compatible sizes i guess...
14:30:56 <AnMaster> ah indeed wang tiles does seem like those used in that game. Thought it was a bad joke at first. ;P
14:31:05 <oklopol> in some sense. i don't know much about the geometric aspect
14:31:10 <AnMaster> oklopol, define reasonable
14:31:23 <oklopol> AnMaster: i can't, i don't know anything about the geometric aspect
14:31:26 <AnMaster> ah
14:31:34 <AnMaster> oklopol, also you forgot 3D jigsaws
14:31:41 <AnMaster> presumably you meant 2D ones only?
14:31:57 <oklopol> i said Z^2, obviously you can do any Z^n
14:32:31 <AnMaster> oklopol, well but you couldn't translate a Z^3 jigsaw to Z^2 wang tiles right?
14:32:49 <AnMaster> btw that gave me an idea for a game, jigsaw on a torus.
14:32:58 <AnMaster> (probably been done already)
14:33:00 <oklopol> anyway all the problems are undecidable for wangs so you they are undecidable for more general sets too; the translation from wangs to jigsaws is trivial, you just add bumps
14:33:03 <oklopol> and dents
14:34:23 <oklopol> AnMaster: no you can't translate a R^3 jigsaw to Z^2 wang tiles, you can't even translate R^2-jig to Z^2-wang in general
14:34:45 <AnMaster> oklopol, indeed
14:35:00 <AnMaster> but weren't those two statements equivalent? Or is jig != jigsaw?
14:35:05 <AnMaster> or wang tiles != wang?
14:35:21 <oerjan> oklopol: you said this was a paper so i presume the proof was non-obvious
14:35:22 <AnMaster> (well, the latter is a person, but in the context of that sentence I meant)
14:35:29 <oklopol> wang = wang tile, jig = jigsaw tile, i meant any shape homeomorphic to a ball
14:35:36 <AnMaster> oklopol, ah
14:35:40 <AnMaster> XD
14:35:52 <oklopol> oerjan: the proof for RE was "obviously"
14:35:59 <AnMaster> oh wait, I misread that as innuendo. doh
14:36:19 <oerjan> hm
14:37:03 <oklopol> what they were actually proving was E and O are in RE and inseparable, where E and O are tile sets that are m-periodic with even and odd m respectively
14:37:21 <oklopol> it's true they are inseparable (the nontrivial part), but the RE claim is not true
14:37:48 <oklopol> *E and O are the families of tile sets ...
14:37:53 <AnMaster> oklopol, so make an article disproving it?
14:38:10 <AnMaster> s/make/write/
14:38:23 <oklopol> it was like lemma 56 with "this claim is not actually interesting by itself, but illustrates the technique well" above it
14:38:29 <oklopol> or something
14:39:02 <oerjan> um so the paper was wrong?
14:39:03 -!- Tritonio_GR has joined.
14:39:29 <oklopol> wrong about RE, right about the nontrivial part of inseparability
14:40:36 <oerjan> oh well
14:41:06 <oklopol> i just wanted to insert my version of wtf someone made a mistake
14:41:43 <oklopol> also they probably meant to say that an m-periodic tile set is one that allows at least one tiling with period m in both directions, this is obviously in R
14:41:45 <oklopol> *RE
14:41:49 <oerjan> oklopol: you were not initially very clear about this being why you said wtf ;)
14:43:00 <oklopol> oerjan: i know
14:43:16 <oklopol> i prefer unclear conversations
14:44:33 -!- relet has left (?).
14:44:49 <oklopol> <oerjan> um well you can emulate turing machines using tiles, so RE results or not exactly unexpected <<< do you just know from wp or something or have you read stuff about this
14:45:02 <oklopol> well i guess that's folklore
14:45:06 <oerjan> "or something", i guess
14:45:24 <oklopol> did you know affine maps can emulate turing machines in R^2 and up?
14:45:34 <oerjan> er, no
14:46:17 <oerjan> i cannot quite connect the concept of affine maps to emulating anything, there...
14:46:35 <oklopol> basically you have (r_1, q + r_2) as state, you can move on the tape by multiplication by constant, and change state and tape values by adding constantes
14:46:37 <oklopol> *constants
14:46:59 -!- hiato has quit (Quit: gonna install official ati drivers).
14:48:20 <oerjan> um you mean using an affine map as the machine state?
14:48:37 <oklopol> and also turns out you can emulate affine maps with tilings (my supervisors idea), which i'm trying to use to add new fun properties to aperiodic sets
14:48:45 <oklopol> no machine state is two reals
14:48:47 <oklopol> a point
14:48:54 -!- MizardX has joined.
14:48:58 <oerjan> ok
14:49:14 <oklopol> then depending on the square you're in, which depends on q and the first digits of r_i's (tops of stacks)
14:49:19 <oklopol> you move on the tape and shit
14:49:28 <oklopol> this is an old idea
14:49:32 <Quadrescence> "you move on the tape and shit" ~quote of the day
14:50:02 <oerjan> oh well. but conditioning on the square you're in is not an affine operation afaik
14:50:37 <oklopol> oh sorry i guess the term is partial affine maps or something
14:50:45 <oerjan> `addquote <oklopol> you move on the tape and shit
14:50:55 <HackEgo> 166|<oklopol> you move on the tape and shit
14:51:18 <oklopol> you split the domain in some sort of areas and there's an affine map for each domain
14:51:23 <oklopol> for each area
14:51:24 <oerjan> ah
14:51:49 <oklopol> a frequent thingie to do in dynamic systems stuffology
14:52:11 -!- Gracenotes has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
14:52:11 <oerjan> yeah, i've mingled with people who did that sort of thing :D
14:52:31 <Quadrescence> oklopol: you mean DYNAMICAL systems
14:52:31 <oerjan> (tilings and translation stuff)
14:52:34 <Quadrescence> that word is always weird to me
14:52:36 <Quadrescence> dynamical
14:52:49 <oklopol> in 1d most problems become decidable, if the affine map is continuous, but if it's not then no one knows anything
14:53:25 -!- Gracenotes has joined.
14:53:32 <oklopol> oh dynamical okay
14:53:45 <oklopol> i first heard the term like two weeks ago
14:53:57 <oklopol> i'm sort of a newbie
14:54:18 <oklopol> nb
14:55:25 <oerjan> oklopol: i find that unlikely, given that it's in the title of at least some of my articles i believe
14:55:35 <oklopol> :D
14:55:46 <oklopol> i meant decidability stuff
14:55:54 <oklopol> if you know about that, it would be VERY useful
14:56:41 <oerjan> i don't think we did much of that no
14:56:49 <Quadrescence> oklopolology
14:58:26 <oklopol> well okay i guess it's not that important anymore, my current problems are related to immortality of turing machines, so if you know good anything about that stuff, would be useful
14:59:45 <oklopol> basically i need to enforce certain properties for tm output no matter what tape it's started on, and usually it's complicated to prove this stuff because a tm like that can't do any sort of unbounded search
15:00:10 <oklopol> the initial random tape can have infinitely many non-blanks
15:01:47 <oklopol> i mean a tm whose output has some property given any initial tape can't have any sort of repetitive behavior because you can cheat it into some sort of infloop
15:02:30 <oerjan> ok i retract that, all the articles i thought of just seem to just say "minimal systems" in the title
15:02:40 <oklopol> what are minimal systems
15:03:02 <oerjan> dynamical systems that are minimal, of course *cough*
15:03:04 <oklopol> affine systems with no closed subsystems?
15:03:09 <oklopol> okay dynamical
15:03:32 <oerjan> every orbit is a dense subset, is one of the equivalent formulations
15:04:16 <oklopol> okay that's actually exactly the kind of stuff i would've needed last week
15:04:17 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined.
15:04:45 <oerjan> another is that there are no closed or open subsets preserved by the dynamics, other than the empty set and the whole space
15:05:06 <oklopol> preserved as in maps to inside it?
15:05:07 <oklopol> self
15:05:11 <oerjan> yeah
15:05:36 <oklopol> okay lol
15:06:01 <oerjan> at least those are equivalent in the context we studied (single transformation on a compact hausdorff space)
15:06:33 <oerjan> (mostly cantor sets)
15:07:15 <oerjan> (that's sort of obvious because the closure of an orbit is a preserved set)
15:07:34 <oklopol> i would've needed some sort of ways to show a system of affine maps does not have a period
15:07:36 <oerjan> *invariant set, may be the terminology
15:09:02 <oklopol> the usual cantor sets?
15:09:18 <oerjan> and well minimal systems don't have periods, true, but minimal is a pretty strong condition
15:09:31 <oerjan> oklopol: or homeomorphic to it
15:09:49 <oklopol> it, because they are all homeomorphic to each other
15:09:54 <oerjan> yeah
15:09:59 <oklopol> i'm so proud i knew that
15:12:08 <oerjan> oklopol: hm that repetitive behavior of a tm, it occurs to me you can control things somewhat by making sure the stuff you've already seen is in a known format
15:12:39 <oerjan> so what's to the left of the tape head isn't a problem
15:14:15 <oerjan> although if you then move left, you need to be sure the boundary to the unknown region is clearly marked so it doesn't trick you when you move back...
15:14:25 <oerjan> things like that
15:14:58 <oklopol> oh umm bi-infinite tape
15:15:19 <oerjan> ah. well you need to make sure the beginning is clearly marked too, then
15:15:34 <oklopol> if you at some point need to go back to the marker
15:15:40 <oklopol> ohh umm
15:15:43 <oklopol> what i failed to mention is
15:15:49 <oklopol> the turing machine can also start in any state :)
15:15:54 <oerjan> ouch
15:15:58 <oklopol> so if you at some point have to go to a marker...
15:16:07 <oklopol> what if there isn't one
15:16:39 <oerjan> indeed now it looks hard
15:16:55 <oklopol> i have to assume anything can happen because we're encoding all this in a real number and the affine system has to have convex and compact domains
15:17:37 <oklopol> for minsky machines it's trivial to show mortality is undecidable, the "stacks" have a finite number, so you just have some counter N, simulate N steps, reboot and simulate 2N and so on
15:17:45 <Phantom_Hoover> Can someone sum up what you have been talking about over the last ~2 hours?
15:18:01 <oklopol> shitting on tapes
15:18:06 <oklopol> mostly
15:18:30 <Phantom_Hoover> There was discussion over GPS and IWC.
15:18:52 <Phantom_Hoover> (Incidentally, I found the thing about ICBMs rather funny)
15:19:20 <oerjan> it's rather obvious once you think of it
15:19:54 <Phantom_Hoover> ICBMs?
15:20:02 <oerjan> also it didn't say IC
15:20:25 <oklopol> what's obvious
15:20:45 <oerjan> that you don't want terrorists to be able to use GPS for missiles
15:20:58 <oerjan> using commercially available parts
15:21:08 <Phantom_Hoover> Can't they make their own GPS receivers?
15:21:28 <Phantom_Hoover> Or do the satellites not send enough data to calculate?
15:21:33 <oklopol> no they can make missiles but gps is too hard
15:21:55 <oklopol> well it probably actually is a lot harder, i haven't tried making either
15:22:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Is the technology secret, or just nigh-impossible to build at home?
15:22:29 <oklopol> also who cares about GPS and IWC when there's tiles involved
15:22:40 <Phantom_Hoover> Ooh, tiles
15:22:42 <oklopol> tiles!
15:23:00 <oklopol> i'm a professional jigsaw puzzle composer
15:23:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Wang tiles, am I right?
15:23:03 <oklopol> yes
15:23:22 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover: i don't think it's secret but it will be harder for the terrorists if they need to get their own expertise and maybe even factories...
15:23:24 <Phantom_Hoover> Incidentally, I think jigsaws and Wang tiles are equivalent.
15:23:44 <oerjan> although they can probably just buy from North Korea :(
15:23:53 <oklopol> there was a piece of discussion about that
15:24:11 <oklopol> but wang tiles can be compiled into jigsaws by adding bumps and dents
15:24:40 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes.
15:24:46 <Phantom_Hoover> That's what I was thinking of.
15:25:38 <oklopol> first thing you do one a tilings course
15:25:41 <oklopol> *on a
15:25:47 <oerjan> the other way around apparently has subtleties
15:25:48 <oklopol> well maybe not
15:26:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Yeah, jigsaw to Wang tiles is complicated...
15:27:18 <oklopol> so Phantom_Hoover do you know all about aperiodic tile sets
15:27:32 <oerjan> (i'm really misquoting oklopol there)
15:27:41 <Phantom_Hoover> No!
15:27:56 <Phantom_Hoover> I sort-of know what Wang tiles are!
15:28:00 <oklopol> and aperiodic tile set is one that allows tilings, but no periodic ones
15:28:10 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, I know what they are.
15:28:18 <oerjan> aperiodic is pretty essential for those tile sets that turn into minimal dynamical systems, iirc
15:28:18 <Phantom_Hoover> Penrose tiles being another example.
15:28:48 <oklopol> yeah penrose tiles are one of the geometric constructions
15:29:41 <oerjan> i _think_ the space of penrose tiles under translation was a minimal system
15:29:49 <oerjan> um
15:30:00 <oklopol> there are 3 known ways to make aperiodic tiles, one is the geometric ones that have some sort of recursive structure (although the details can vary lots), then there's the all-new fixed point tile sets that can do almost anything, and then there's the one based on beatty sequences made by my supervisor (smallest known)
15:30:08 <oerjan> they probably need to be at least somewhat compatibly oriented
15:30:25 <oklopol> oerjan: you've done tiling minimality stuff?
15:30:36 <oerjan> i've heard of it
15:30:49 <oklopol> argh, it's been like two weeks and i still don't know anything :<
15:30:54 <oerjan> as i said above, i've mingled with that kind of people
15:31:04 <oklopol> i should go read stuff prolly
15:31:13 <oklopol> yeah
15:32:11 <oklopol> soon i'll go
15:32:19 <oklopol> soon
15:32:22 <oklopol> i hate irc
15:32:31 <oerjan> as for those 3 ways, does it include cutting planes of higher dimensional tilings?
15:32:49 <oerjan> i think i recall penrose tilings could be got by cutting something five-dimensional
15:32:54 <oklopol> i don't know of proofs that were originally based on those
15:32:59 <oerjan> or something like that
15:33:06 <oklopol> but yeah i suppose that's different
15:33:27 <Phantom_Hoover> oklopol: You aren't a mathematician too, are you?
15:33:34 <oklopol> i think penroses were just later noted to be cuts like that, or something
15:33:41 <oerjan> hm or maybe it was just 3, but with a suitable angle
15:34:01 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: if i'm something, then i'm a mathematician; but i don't think i'm anything yet
15:34:20 <oerjan> yeah it may not have been penrose's original construction. then i don't really recall.
15:34:36 <oerjan> *but then
15:34:47 <oklopol> oerjan: so i guess the third category is "geometrical stuff"
15:35:09 <oklopol> ones where you actually think about them as tiles and not just local constraints on C^(Z^2)
15:35:31 <oerjan> hm
15:35:53 <Phantom_Hoover> C^(Z^2)?
15:35:55 <Phantom_Hoover> What?
15:36:04 <oklopol> the geometric ones aren't nearly as flexible as the fixed point thing (where you can basically make a tm compute anything on the tape), and hopefully the thing i'm doing now
15:36:25 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: elements of that are integer lattices filled with elements of C
15:36:27 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover: oklopol has switched from computer science to mathematics since he came here
15:36:53 <Phantom_Hoover> Lattice...?
15:37:00 * oerjan wonders if he's responsible for that
15:37:04 <oklopol> well the cartesian product Z * Z
15:38:27 <oerjan> C is just an arbitrary set here, i presume
15:38:30 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: the set of pairs with both elements of Z
15:38:34 <oklopol> oerjan: yes, i hit a random key
15:38:36 <oklopol> :D
15:38:56 <oerjan> although i would suppose the complex numbers _would_ be big enough for all your needs
15:39:02 <Phantom_Hoover> YOU ARE CONFUSING.
15:39:36 <Phantom_Hoover> You could have picked T, or, W, or something without a well-known prior definition, but noooo.
15:39:47 <oklopol> A^B is the set of functions f : B -> A, A^2 is the cartesian product of A with itself
15:39:54 <oklopol> so C^(Z^2)
15:40:02 <oklopol> oh you were confused about complexes right
15:40:39 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lattice_(group)
15:40:39 <oklopol> in that case, what oerjan said, you can interpret it as complex numbers
15:40:58 <oklopol> i was thinking of just lattice as a geometrical idea, but okay :P
15:41:58 <oklopol> oh
15:42:00 <oklopol> that's that
15:42:08 <oerjan> oklopol: well, this is as opposed to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lattice_(order)
15:42:25 <oklopol> yeah
15:42:42 <oklopol> i just had the exam about universal algebra btw, GUESS HOW IT WENT
15:42:57 <oerjan> (a completely different meaning, although there is probably _some_ connection (almost _everything_ in math is connected to the latter one, isn't it)
15:43:01 <oerjan> )
15:43:14 <oklopol> well there's a connection between the geometric intuition and both of them
15:44:26 <oerjan> oklopol: well i guess you aced it, as otherwise you would have been miserably complaining already if i know you ;D
15:44:32 <oklopol> :D
15:44:44 <oklopol> yeah not much to complain this year, i've been studied much more
15:44:46 <oklopol> *
15:44:49 <oklopol> studying
15:45:28 <oklopol> math is more motivating than programming for mobile phones and software engineering
15:45:36 <oerjan> oh forgetting to eat again
15:46:34 <oklopol> o
15:46:34 <oklopol> oko
15:46:35 <oklopol> o
15:46:36 <oklopol> oko
15:46:39 <oklopol> okoko

15:46:41 <oklopol> o
15:46:41 <oklopol> oko
15:46:41 <oklopol> o
15:48:46 <oklopol> i should eat too, although my stomach hurts from drinking coffee all day
15:50:12 <oklopol> oerjan: you may be partly responsible, but i think it was more the math courses i took, so don't feel bad
15:51:06 <oklopol> it wasn't exactly a calculated decision, i was told i should switch to math and i was like fuck that's true
15:51:58 <oklopol> at some point all my cs had been replaced with math cells, without me knowing it
15:53:02 <AnMaster> <Phantom_Hoover> You could have picked T, or, W, or something without a well-known prior definition, but noooo. <-- he didn't use unicode blackboard bold chars
15:53:09 <AnMaster> if he had it would have been way more confusing
15:53:29 <Phantom_Hoover> But *no-one* uses them here, and he used Z for the nats.
15:53:52 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, I use unicode notation if I remember to and I'm not too lazy
15:54:14 <oerjan> oklopol: it's not like i would feel bad even if i were responsible, though ;D

15:59:54 <oerjan> AUUUUUM
16:00:35 <AnMaster> XD
16:00:37 <AnMaster> hi ais523 btw
16:00:44 <oklopol> oerjan: i presume A, U and M are arbitrary sets there
16:01:07 <AnMaster> oklopol, is that the product of the sets or something then?
16:02:08 <ais523> hi
16:02:30 <oklopol> usually i've seen it mean the multiplication of pairs of elements of the languages X and Y
16:02:49 <oklopol> i mean {xy | x \in X, y \in Y}
16:03:22 <oklopol> but if there isn't a multiplication then cartesian product might be the next logical interpretation
16:03:33 <oklopol> in the logic of intuitivity
16:04:02 <AnMaster> argh is it just me or has the download system on sf.net gotten slower and more complex to use over time?
16:04:08 * oerjan just shakes his head

16:38:52 <oerjan> argh!
16:39:09 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, Norway has that maelstrom iirc

16:42:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh, Underload.
16:42:57 * AnMaster tries to imagine a gray code computer.
16:43:10 <AnMaster> for all integers and such
16:43:20 <AnMaster> I wonder how to represent a signed number in gray code
16:43:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Gray codes are sequences, aren't they?
16:44:47 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, hm? an n-bit gray code encoding can be mapped 1:1 to an n-bit binary encoding
16:45:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Gray codes as in the differs-by-one-bit sequences?
16:45:47 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, well yes that is the point that they differ by only 1 bit between any pair of numbers next to each other
16:46:33 <AnMaster> but it still goes through all combinations. For an example:
16:46:34 <AnMaster> Bin Gray
16:46:34 <AnMaster> 00 00
16:46:35 <AnMaster> 01 01
16:46:35 <AnMaster> 10 11
16:46:35 <AnMaster> 11 10
16:46:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Yeah, I get it now.
16:46:49 <AnMaster> right
16:47:17 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, while an adder for a 4 bit gray code number would probably be quite a pain it shouldn't be impossible
16:48:08 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, another important thing with gray code is of course that there is only one bit difference between first and last element too
16:48:16 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, of course.
16:49:32 <oklopol> why of course?
16:49:33 <AnMaster> I wonder how infeasible basic arithmetic would be in gray code...
16:49:58 <oklopol> i don't know why i asked that :P
16:50:08 <AnMaster> oh?
16:50:30 <AnMaster> oklopol, look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Encoder_Disc_%283-Bit%29.svg
16:50:40 <oklopol> why?
16:50:51 <AnMaster> oklopol, imagine that is a disk used in some machinery to read the angle of rotation
16:51:09 <AnMaster> oklopol, it uses lamps and sensors to see if an area is black or white
16:51:13 <AnMaster> and by that read the value
16:51:29 <AnMaster> oklopol, now in practise these might not be perfectly aligned
16:51:36 <oklopol> i'm imagining.
16:51:45 <AnMaster> resulting in you could get an inconsistent reading when right at an edge between two values
16:52:16 <AnMaster> with a binary coding you could end up at the wrong side of the disc in your reading that way
16:52:18 <AnMaster> with gray code you can't
16:52:20 <oklopol> so what you're saying is "of course, because that makes most sense"
16:52:33 <oklopol> and not "of course, because the last one is forced"
16:52:42 <AnMaster> oklopol, and since it is a circle it must match up between max value and least value
16:52:56 <AnMaster> oklopol, I know the engineering reason for it :P
16:52:58 <AnMaster> bbl food
16:53:14 <Phantom_Hoover> AnMaster: Doing addition and subtraction mechanically would be easy.
16:53:48 <oklopol> it would?
16:54:14 -!- lament has quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds).
16:55:23 <oklopol> it has a very regular structure so you could imagine there's a faster addition than looped increment (i guess maybe you could just translate between binary?)
16:55:30 <Phantom_Hoover> With one of the wheels, a non-destructive copy routine.
16:55:41 <oklopol> oh mechanically
16:55:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Although that's just looped increment.
16:56:01 <Phantom_Hoover> And would take ages.
16:56:09 <Phantom_Hoover> But it would look amazingly cool.
16:56:20 <oklopol> (i interpreted your "mechanically" as "")
16:56:33 <oklopol> probably
16:56:37 <oklopol> whatever it'd look like
16:57:09 <Phantom_Hoover> It'd make whirring noises.
16:57:27 <Phantom_Hoover> Perhaps I should tell those Rube Goldberg computer people about it...
16:57:41 <oklopol> okay so grey -> binary should be easy, first bit is first bit, then you just invert or something if the first bit was one and recurse
16:58:01 <oklopol> i don't remember the exact construction, but i think there's some simple way
16:58:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Doing arithmetic in binary kind of defeats the point.
16:58:37 <oklopol> math is all about cheating :P
16:58:52 <oklopol> but umm
16:58:58 -!- hiato has joined.
16:58:59 <oklopol> once you know how to do it with the translations
16:59:08 <Phantom_Hoover> Cheating with esoteric stuff is boring.

16:59:13 <oklopol> you can try to do it without them by just looking at what it's doing

16:59:51 <Phantom_Hoover> Hmm, for 2-bit values +2 is identical to complement.
17:00:07 <oerjan> hm, is the thue-morse sequence simply the last bits of the gray codes?
17:00:31 <oklopol> well how are the grey codes constructed?
17:00:53 <oklopol> err

17:01:12 <oerjan> it cannot be, because it sometimes changes twice in a row
17:01:27 <oklopol> i recall in grey codes you first do some 2^n lines L and then you add a one in the beginning and do L's inverted or something
17:01:28 <AnMaster> back
17:01:34 <oklopol> so it'd be thue-morse?
17:01:36 <oklopol> oh
17:01:39 <AnMaster> <Phantom_Hoover> AnMaster: Doing addition and subtraction mechanically would be easy. <-- yes but I meant electronically
17:01:53 <oerjan> which would mean it got back where you started since only one bit can change at a time for the gray code
17:01:57 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, also, multiplication and division looks *really* tricky
17:02:04 <oklopol> true
17:03:00 <AnMaster> <oklopol> it has a very regular structure so you could imagine there's a faster addition than looped increment (i guess maybe you could just translate between binary?) <-- as I said above I was considering a computer that only used gray code, no binary encoding
17:03:22 <AnMaster> <Phantom_Hoover> Perhaps I should tell those Rube Goldberg computer people about it... <-- what?
17:03:27 <AnMaster> link!
17:03:34 <oklopol> oh you don't reverse or flip any bit sequences, you just do R in reverse order
17:03:38 <oklopol> *L
17:03:41 <AnMaster> (if it was a joke I'm disappointed!)
17:03:45 <oklopol> L being the bit strings used sofar
17:03:57 <Phantom_Hoover> http://www.diycalculator.com/sp-hrrgcomp.shtml
17:04:06 <Phantom_Hoover> Some very cool ideas.
17:04:12 <AnMaster> <oklopol> okay so grey -> binary should be easy, first bit is first bit, then you just invert or something if the first bit was one and recurse <-- iirc the standard way is some xor gate net
17:04:14 <oklopol> 0 1 11 10 110 111 101 100 1100 1101 1111 1110 ...
17:04:19 <AnMaster> or was that for computing parity?
17:04:29 <AnMaster> or maybe both
17:04:33 <oklopol> or at least that way you can make a thingie that always changes one bit
17:04:42 <Phantom_Hoover> One idea for the clock was an electrical arc.
17:05:38 -!- hiato has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
17:06:01 <oerjan> hm it would seem the last bit of gray code just goes 0110 indefinitely
17:06:08 <oklopol> yes, obviously
17:06:40 <oerjan> and each other bit does the same, just slower
17:06:46 <AnMaster> oerjan, that is a trivial result of how gray code is generated
17:07:04 <oklopol> first they go 0110, let that be a_0, then you always add the same things in the reverse order, so a_(i+1) = a_i (a_i)^-1
17:07:11 <oerjan> AnMaster: well yeah it was just relevant to my thue-morse question
17:07:16 <oklopol> same for the other bits
17:07:18 <AnMaster> hm
17:07:28 <AnMaster> oerjan, ah
17:07:56 <oklopol> and w w^-1 iterated with that rule is always just (w w^-1)^n's
17:08:12 <oklopol> not exactly those but among those

17:10:25 <AnMaster> oklopol, I did not consider that it needed any proof. It should be self evident if you know the algorithm for generating it.
17:10:33 <oklopol> oerjan: but i started rambling

17:19:07 <AnMaster> Phantom_Hoover, suction, and check if you get an under-preasure in the tube. Then the cone connected to it is blocked

17:19:30 <AnMaster> rather than having conducting balls and some wires

19:07:11 <Oranjer> hmmm
19:13:30 <Phantom_Hoover> There's also a video.
19:16:18 <Oranjer> D:
19:16:44 <Phantom_Hoover> The word "MACHEEEEESMO" is often said.
19:17:09 <Oranjer> Ma: Cheese? -Mo'!
19:22:31 <alise> Concrete Roman si a strange, but likeable, font.
19:25:45 <Phantom_Hoover> AARGH, A TYPOGRAPHY NERD!
19:26:33 <Oranjer> hey now, appearance of information is quite important
19:26:44 <alise> *is
19:27:10 <alise> Also, liking a font is being a typography nerd now? Boy, as a typography nerd, can I just say that I am sorely upset at the dumbing-down of its requirements.
19:27:20 <alise> Also, what?! AMS Euler doesn't have bold?
19:27:43 <Phantom_Hoover> No, you've previously demonstrated dangerous typographical urges!
19:29:25 <alise> Well, yes.
19:29:39 <alise> Something wrong with typography? :-)
19:30:28 <Phantom_Hoover> It's odd.
19:30:35 <pikhq> Only an EVIL person would use something other than Microsoft Word!
19:31:51 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Typography is the granddaddy of both (good) design, information presentation, and interfaces.
19:32:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Bah, what's wrong with pen and paper?
19:32:29 <pikhq> Your mother.
19:32:39 <alise> I like how Concrete Roman makes your document look like it was typed out on a typewriter, except it still looks typographically good.
19:33:02 <pikhq> alise: That's quite a feat.
19:33:10 <alise> Well, this is Knuth we're talking about...
19:33:33 <pikhq> Oh, right, it is Knuth.
19:33:59 <pikhq> A guy who went on sabbatical to learn how to do typography right so he could teach a computer how to do it right. :)
19:35:02 <alise> Anyway, so I noticed that the (a,b)-representing-(a-b) construction of Z and the (a,b)-representing-(a/b) construction of Q are very, very similar.
19:35:11 <alise> In fact, they are the same transformation -- on N and Z, respectively!
19:35:31 <alise> Consider a set S and a binary operation * : (S,S) -> S with identity element e.
19:35:32 <alise> Then:
19:35:35 <alise> inj(x) = (x,e)
19:35:41 <alise> inv (a,b) = (b,a)
19:35:46 <alise> (a,b) ~ (c,d) = (a*b = c*d)
19:35:52 <alise> (a,b) *' (c,d) = (a*b, c*d)
19:36:08 <alise> Er, wait, that one is wrong.
19:36:13 <alise> (a,b) *' (c,d) = (a*c, b*d)
19:36:19 <alise> (a,b) *i (c,d) = (a*d, b*c)
19:36:48 <alise> Then we have *' being the analogy to * and *i the inversion.
19:42:36 <alise> Is this a well-known transformation? It must be; it's so trivial.
19:44:28 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds).
19:45:33 <alise> Dilemma when using a significantly different body and mathematics font: To follow, or not, the standard punctuation rule of putting punctuation in the end of quotes, instead of outside them, or not.
19:46:05 <alise> Things usually flow better if you put the punctuation inside the mathematics, but for "." this is not so; the "." in mathematical fonts are usually much thicker and bolder than those in text fonts, so things look a bit strange.
19:46:06 <alise> Opinions?
19:48:01 * alise puts all punctuation inside apart from "." for now. But that seems so strange.
19:48:55 <Oranjer> well, I heard that you know someone's a programmer if they put punctuation on the outside in writing
19:49:08 <pikhq> Oranjer: ... Or British.
19:49:15 <Oranjer> really?
19:49:20 <Oranjer> huh, cool
19:49:45 <alise> pikhq: I must admit I find myself putting some punctuation on the inside.
19:50:07 <Deewiant> You've misplaced yourself
19:50:11 <alise> Having a seeming "space" between the space where the quote mark is (which are so high up they're "invisible" in a way) and the punctuation.
19:50:16 <alise> -- is strange
19:50:40 <alise> Anyway, just in case nobody's written about this transformation before (p ~= 0), I am hereby the first: http://filebin.ca/owxsdu/extend.pdf
19:51:02 <alise> And yes, I just did that for the very remote possibility it's not a known thing.
19:51:02 <pikhq> alise: You realise that the only reason why punctuation ends up inside is that the quote mark slugs where small, right? :P
19:51:21 <alise> *were
19:51:32 <alise> pikhq: Well, a lot of things are silly.
19:51:40 <alise> "ou" spellings are a hypercorrection, for instance.
19:51:52 <pikhq> Yes.
19:52:18 <alise> Still.
19:52:31 <alise> For mathematical fonts it's different.
19:52:44 <alise> Since you have a mathematical-font character and then a jarring differently-styled punctuation mark right after.
19:55:21 <alise> pikhq: Anyway -- "According to the Cambridge Handbook for Editors, Copy-editors and Proofreaders, periods and commas that are part of the persons speech are permitted inside the quotation marks regardless."
19:55:29 <alise> Which covers most instances such as, say, speech.
19:56:00 <pikhq> Yes.
19:57:51 <alise> I like Middle English.
19:58:53 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
20:00:07 <alise> Hey, does anyone want to tell me how Lost ended? I don't know a fucking thing about it, so this should be fun.
20:00:22 <alise> Well, I know a thing or two.
20:00:25 <alise> But still.
20:00:31 <pikhq> It was his sled.
20:00:35 <pikhq> :PO
20:00:48 <alise> :PO; what species are you exactly?
20:01:15 <alise> [[The flash sideways is revealed to be a type of purgatory for the main characters, where they reside until accepting their life and death, and are then able to "let go" and "move on."]]
20:01:18 <alise> that is so boring
20:01:25 <alise> Wait a second... that was the ending of Ashes to Ashes, too.
20:01:34 <alise> Must. Create. Conspiracy. Theory...
20:01:59 -!- kar8nga has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
20:06:53 <Sgeo> alise, I want to make a rap involving certain differences in programming languages
20:07:42 <Sgeo> At first, I thought maybe on the subtle differences in assignment, but I think equality and identity comparision might be more useful, because those tend to vary more widely and insanely
20:08:15 -!- cheater99 has joined.
20:08:28 <cheater99> yo
20:08:37 <alise> Sgeo: you're insane.
20:08:41 <cheater99> i have a q about blowfish
20:08:50 <alise> And you know you're really insane, because I'm insane, and even I think (sanely) that you're insane.
20:08:51 <cheater99> it is parametrized, how do i decide what setup cost i should be using? i understand it is dictated by the hardware the attacker might be using
20:08:59 <alise> cheater99: are you hashing passwords?
20:09:03 <cheater99> yes
20:09:04 <cheater99> why?
20:09:05 <Sgeo> It's not going to have all languages
20:09:06 <alise> cheater99: use bcrypt
20:09:18 <Sgeo> It probably needs to include PHP though, which I know nothing about
20:09:21 <cheater99> that's the idea
20:09:27 <cheater99> but i don't know what complexity to use
20:09:29 <alise> cheater99: ah.
20:09:40 <alise> cheater99: well, is this an irc server or a bank?
20:09:52 <alise> btw, it's not Blowfish that's parameterised; it's bcrypt.
20:10:01 <alise> Anyway, the default for at least the Python library is 12, but you can get away with a lot more than that.
20:10:18 <alise> cheater99: Just pick a big value such that making it much bigger would make password hashing take an unreasonable amount of time.
20:10:25 <alise> Sure, this will be excessive, but it's not like that's harmful.
20:10:31 <cheater99> but how do i know if it's good or not?
20:10:44 <alise> Bigger is better
20:10:49 <cheater99> not necessarily
20:10:54 <alise> It's ridiculously secure so even low values like 12 should be good.
20:10:55 <alise> *better.
20:10:58 <cheater99> i don't want 2 people logging in at the same time to take down the server.
20:11:03 <alise> But if I were in charge of a bank I'd go higher.
20:11:15 <alise> cheater99: Then experiment with values until it's fast.
20:11:25 <alise> http://www.openbsd.org/papers/bcrypt-paper.ps is the paper; maybe it has some suggestions.
20:11:27 <cheater99> but then it might not be secure enough.
20:11:41 <cheater99> i can't read ps
20:12:18 <pikhq> How likely do you figure are people to spend thousands of computer-years trying to crack a single password?
20:12:22 <pikhq> :)
20:12:27 <alise> cheater99: why not? What OS?
20:12:42 <alise> If Windows, I don't know; Google it or something. If Linux, yes you can. If OS X, yes you can.
20:12:46 <alise> If phone, get a computer :-)
20:12:56 <alise> (Or if it's an iPhone, I think you can still; I know it does PDFs.)
20:13:31 <cheater99> alise: linux on gprs and no software to read ps
20:14:16 <cheater99> pikhq, i need to understand what complexity takes how long to break a password
20:14:33 <alise> cheater99: gprs -- so mobile.
20:14:34 <pikhq> cheater99: You're scaling between hundreds of years and millions of years.
20:14:39 <alise> Or, just bad mobile internet.
20:14:45 <alise> cheater99: do you have xpdf? Evince?
20:14:49 <alise> Umm... anything?!
20:14:55 <cheater99> i have...
20:14:56 <cheater99> bash
20:15:05 <cheater99> does bash read ps?
20:15:32 <cheater99> pikhq, what is a reputable source that quotes those numbers?
20:15:34 <Phantom_Hoover> No...
20:15:41 <cheater99> and what year was that estimation made?
20:15:44 <Phantom_Hoover> Why would Bash read ps?
20:15:49 <Phantom_Hoover> Try gs.
20:15:51 <cheater99> Phantom_Hoover, you tell me
20:16:24 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: it's called a rhetorical question.
20:16:31 <pikhq> alise: Perhaps you could ps2ascii for him?
20:16:33 <Phantom_Hoover> Aha.
20:17:05 <Phantom_Hoover> Bloody rhetorical questions...
20:17:07 <cheater99> ok i think i have evince
20:17:15 <Phantom_Hoover> That'll read pses.

20:18:39 <cheater99> so alise
20:18:48 <pikhq> Holy fuck that sucks.
20:18:58 <cheater99> how do i make the connection of complexity <-> number of years required to crack
20:19:41 <alise> pikhq: no, I did that manually :D
20:19:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Define complexity?
20:19:53 <alise> I thought it was quite good thank you very much!
20:20:03 <alise> cheater99: magic; anyway, I think the paper has a sum
20:20:04 <alise> iirc
20:20:20 <Phantom_Hoover> How are we defining complexity?
20:20:44 <Sgeo> I'm hallucinating. I thought I heard my computer beep lightly, but the sound's all the way down, and no one pinged me on IRC or anything
20:21:15 <Phantom_Hoover> Evidently aliens.
20:21:27 <alise> Sgeo: I do that often.
20:23:32 <alise> It irritates me that there aren't any really good mathematical fonts.
20:23:44 <Phantom_Hoover> ...
20:23:51 <alise> Let me guess; Computer Modern?
20:23:59 <Phantom_Hoover> ...
20:24:02 <alise> But it's Didone, for heaven's sake!
20:24:09 <Phantom_Hoover> What's wrong with bloody TeX?
20:24:18 <alise> Congratulations; you don't know what a font is.
20:24:26 <Phantom_Hoover> Of course I do!
20:24:34 <alise> Please go to your nearest euthanisation booth.
20:24:35 <Phantom_Hoover> But why do you need mathematical ones?
20:24:45 <alise> Do you even know what TeX /is/? Or what Computer Modern is?
20:24:49 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes!
20:24:55 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, not Computer Modern.
20:24:59 <alise> Replying to "[request for font]" with "TeX" makes no sense!
20:25:14 <alise> Presumably you mean TeX's /default/ font -- which is ABSOLUTELY changeable -- Computer Modern!
20:25:26 <alise> Which I already preempted and responded to: <alise> But it's Didone, for heaven's sake!
20:25:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, I get it now.
20:25:47 <alise> Yay
20:26:07 <Phantom_Hoover> What's wrong with Didonity?
20:26:08 <alise> I have my grievances with TeX-the-typesetting-system too, but that's neither here nor there.
20:26:16 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: It's ghastly.
20:26:24 <Phantom_Hoover> Why?
20:26:30 <alise> Computer Modern is admittedly one of the better specimens of Didonicity.
20:26:41 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Why does shit stink?
20:26:43 <alise> Because it's stinky.
20:26:50 <Phantom_Hoover> It's a font! It specifies a way for symbols to be displayed on the screen!
20:26:57 <alise> No, actually, it's a typeface.
20:27:11 <alise> And it specifies some constraints with parameters on abstract glyphs.
20:27:13 <Phantom_Hoover> Yesyesyes
20:27:18 <Phantom_Hoover> Like?
20:27:24 <alise> Look up METAFONT.
20:27:38 <alise> Computer Modern's sans variation, for instance, is produced merely by setting the relevant serif-controlling parameters of Computer Modern to zero.
20:27:46 <alise> Similar with the bold font, etc.
20:27:54 <alise> Not sure about the italic font.
20:28:12 <Phantom_Hoover> What is the specific problem?
20:28:21 <alise> With Didonicity?
20:28:27 <pikhq> Aesthetic value!
20:28:36 <alise> Because for a font F, Didonicity(F) is almost exactly equal to Fugly(F).
20:28:54 <alise> Sometimes there is a very large value of DesignerWithGoodTaste(F) which outweighs this; the only known example is Computer Modern.
20:29:10 <cheater99> alise, computer modern is a family of typefaces
20:29:13 <cheater99> it is not a typeface
20:29:15 <Phantom_Hoover> Dear god, I never thought I'd *ever* be having a heated discussion over this.
20:29:21 <alise> cheater99: Okay, okay, you win the pedant war. :)
20:29:30 <alise> But you don't win the MORAL HIGH-GROUND!
20:29:53 <cheater99> i didn't intend to - i enjoy being immoral
20:30:02 <cheater99> now explain this complexity parameter to me
20:30:07 <cheater99> and find good citations

20:34:18 <alise> cheater99: Yes, I can quote too.
20:34:28 <alise> cheater99: More to the point: you /like/ German?
20:34:37 <pikhq> cheater99: Yes you do. Unless you write German in runes?
20:34:42 <Phantom_Hoover> It's a wonderful language to be angry in.
20:34:49 <cheater99> i write german with a sword
20:34:53 <cheater99> in your chest.
20:35:01 <Phantom_Hoover> My point exactly.
20:35:52 <Phantom_Hoover> Hmm, what emotions do languages map to...
20:35:55 <alise> pikhq: Now now, we both know what that quote means.
20:36:06 <Phantom_Hoover> French: romance. Or pretentiousness.
20:36:18 <alise> (If you don't: Latin Antiqua script vs. German Fraktur script dispute.)
20:36:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Latin: pretentiousness.
20:36:49 <alise> Fraktur, note, is ugly except in very specific circumstances.
20:37:00 <pikhq> Fraktur is such a pain to read.
20:37:12 <alise> Certainly I'd rather read a book in Antiqua than Fraktur no matter what the language; Fraktur basically embodies hostility to the reader -- "you cannot read this".
20:37:31 <alise> It is almost as if it is intentionally designed such that only the sufficiently patient and determined can make sense of its forms.
20:37:40 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: German: POWER.
20:38:05 <pikhq> alise: Grass script is worse. (note: only relevant for Chinese characters)
20:38:19 <alise> Not Japanese?
20:38:27 * alise looks that up. Ow.
20:38:28 <alise> OW.
20:38:35 <alise> I want to cry
20:38:36 <pikhq> Japanese uses Chinese characters as well.
20:38:52 <alise> Should be called "fuck you script".
20:39:32 <pikhq> Fortunately, it's only used for calligraphy, not for writing...
20:39:47 <pikhq> (because *nobody can freaking read it*)
20:40:19 <alise> Calligraphy irritates me some.
20:40:40 <pikhq> Chinese calligraphy is quite nice when it's not grass script.
20:41:01 <pikhq> (semicursive script and regular script are nice. Mmm.)
20:41:03 <cheater99> fraktur is so easy to learn and quite beautiful to behold
20:41:24 <cheater99> and easy to read
20:41:40 <cheater99> unless you expect to be able to read cyrillic off the bat without having actually been taught
20:42:18 <pikhq> But Fraktur is nominally *the same damned script*. It's just a very hard to read rendering thereof!
20:42:19 <alise> It's not beautiful. It's pretty much the opposite of beautiful: pointless flourish and agonising at times, painfully fractured (how appropriate) the rest.
20:42:36 <cheater99> no, it's not.
20:42:39 <alise> It's not easy to read; no way can you read it as fluidly as Antiqua-descendants.
20:42:52 <Phantom_Hoover> Continuing...
20:43:01 <Phantom_Hoover> English: instruction manuals.
20:43:01 <alise> Anyway, I'm quite uninterested in the opinion of anyone who likes Fraktur; even if it's an opinion about Fraktur.
20:43:04 <alise> :P
20:43:30 <cheater99> fraktur is as similar to antiqua as greek is similar to orthodox cyrillic
20:43:45 <pikhq> cheater99: Failure.
20:43:59 <Phantom_Hoover> ...They're both Latin scripts?
20:44:06 <cheater99> no, they're not
20:44:15 <cheater99> go read a book
20:44:33 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: Yes, Fraktur is a style of Roman script. As is Antiqua.
20:45:03 <pikhq> cheater99: Linguistics failure.
20:45:08 <Phantom_Hoover> cheater99: Yes they are. They both use Latin characters.
20:45:16 <Phantom_Hoover> What more could you possibly want?
20:45:33 <pikhq> Anyone who uses a Roman script will be able to recognise Fraktus as a very ornate rendering of Roman script.
20:45:43 <pikhq> s/Fraktus/Fraktur/
20:46:16 <pikhq> Heck, it's closer to Antiqua than handwritten cursive is.
20:47:16 <pikhq> Now, you want an authentically German script? Learn runes.
20:49:08 <cheater99> pikhq, not really
20:49:23 <cheater99> Phantom_Hoover, they use roman characters... there's no such thing as latin characters.
20:49:37 <Phantom_Hoover> Same difference.
20:49:50 <Phantom_Hoover> You know what I meant.
20:50:33 <Phantom_Hoover> Also, according to WP "Latin" and "Roman" are interchangeable.
20:51:17 <Phantom_Hoover> Also, why are there so many quote marks?
20:51:30 <pikhq> cheater99: "Not really" what?
20:51:32 <pikhq> Runes?
20:51:51 <pikhq> Those are a script legitimately meant for Germanic languages.
20:52:44 <cheater99> wat
20:53:18 <pikhq> Yareally.
20:53:29 <Phantom_Hoover> So you're saying that the Roman characters were reinvented for Germanic languages?
20:53:38 <Phantom_Hoover> (at cheater, not pikhq)
20:56:19 <cheater99> no?
20:59:24 <Phantom_Hoover> OK, so why is Fraktur not Latin?
20:59:29 <alise> Egyptienne is a nice slab serif.
21:00:20 <cheater99> because Latin is a language
21:00:33 <cheater99> and a Latin Script is a script used for that language
21:00:45 <pikhq> *Failure*, cheater99.
21:00:47 <cheater99> and Fraktur has never been used for Latin books
21:00:47 <pikhq> *Failure*.
21:01:20 <cheater99> pikhq, that didn't have the effect you desired the first time around, and it won't even if you hammer it a thousand times
21:01:27 <cheater99> it might have a different effect though!
21:01:29 <pikhq> cheater99: It's still true!
21:02:02 <cheater99> pikhq, your mom.
21:02:09 <pikhq> Your statements are so bloody ignorant it makes my brain bleed!
21:02:40 <pikhq> The Latin script, more commonly called the Roman script, is the script originally developed for use in Latin, and later adapted to a *large* number of languages.
21:03:06 <pikhq> It has had many, many different stylistic variants, simply because it has been in use for a couple millenia now.
21:03:20 <cheater99> are you copypasting that from anyone-can-contribute-pedia?
21:03:30 <pikhq> No, I'm not.
21:03:43 <cheater99> prove it.
21:03:51 <pikhq> I don't have HTTP access ATM.
21:04:02 <cheater99> hearsay
21:04:30 <pikhq> You, sir, are an idiot, who needs to learn more about linguistics before talking about writing systems.
21:04:41 <pikhq> Pity our resident linguist isn't around ATM.
21:04:53 <cheater99> i love you too
21:05:10 <Phantom_Hoover> cheater99: Actually refute what he's saying, rather than accusing him of getting it off WP.
21:05:37 <cheater99> i absolutely do not care enough for this to happen
21:05:52 <pikhq> So, what you're saying is... You're a troll?
21:06:31 <cheater99> no, what i'm saying is i had an interesting conversation with alise and you came in with your boring interjections and spoiled it
21:07:05 <alise> Can I hate both of you?
21:07:10 <alise> That seems fair.
21:07:34 <pikhq> alise: Please, do. I have precious few enemies of late. It makes life more interesting to have good enemies.
21:07:37 <cheater99> alise: can't rape the willing
21:07:53 <alise> pikhq: Though, note that you too have the obligation to provide references.
21:08:04 <pikhq> alise: I am incapable of doing so ATM.
21:08:12 <alise> Then chill a bit :)
21:08:23 <pikhq> So. ([Pikhq's Memory])
21:08:26 <pikhq> There's my citation.
21:08:26 <pikhq> :P
21:08:31 <alise> Shit, my life ranks pretty damn high on the shitty scales and even I'm chilling right now.
21:08:44 <pikhq> alise: You think I'm worked up?
21:09:07 <alise> Well, perhaps not; but your text was.
21:09:20 <pikhq> I have a serious problem with that.
21:09:20 <cheater99> so alise
21:09:29 <alise> I noticed. I do too
21:09:30 <cheater99> want 2 talk about what's putting you down?
21:09:36 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: You hate like everyone.
21:09:42 <pikhq> My discussions can get significantly more inflammatory than they are meant to be.
21:09:42 <alise> cheater99: If you're in here you should know :-)
21:09:50 <cheater99> alise: i don't
21:09:55 <cheater99> alise: i am only here periodically
21:10:08 <cheater99> alise: but i care for this channel, fill me in
21:10:22 <cheater99> pikhq, apology accepted
21:10:28 <alise> cheater99: Suffice to say that I'm falsely forced to be in a bureaucratic children's mental institution Monday to Friday that is basically a relic of the 60s; and to a large degree I'm treat like a 7-year-old there.
21:10:31 <pikhq> cheater99: :P
21:10:42 <pikhq> cheater99: HEY I NEVER APOLIGISED! (j/k)
21:10:49 <alise> When I have tried to protest by not attending they first threatened to invoke the Mental Health act on me; then, they threatened (to my mother) to put me into foster care.
21:10:59 <alise> My life is shitty; discuss.
21:11:12 <cheater99> alise: how old r u
21:11:22 <alise> 14.
21:11:26 <cheater99> btw, it's 'FML, discuss'
21:11:32 <alise> Also I'm male; this name is a long story
21:11:33 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: Am I allowed to ask why in the first place?
21:11:41 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: They think I'm crazy
21:11:47 <alise> If you want something more specific ask more specifically :P
21:11:52 <cheater99> alise: every time i see your nickname i think of the gif of alisee waving her hips
21:11:59 <cheater99> but the version with a huge penis stuck on
21:12:15 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: Why do they think you're crazy?
21:12:21 <alise> cheater99: Good to know, good to know.
21:12:27 <cheater99> alise: if i were you i would be really nice to your mom and ask her to put you in a better place than tht
21:12:30 <cheater99> *that
21:12:41 <alise> cheater99: My mother isn't the one doing it! She's sane enough to hate it too.
21:12:50 <cheater99> then who's 'doing it' and y?
21:12:57 <alise> When she cooperated with my not attending, they told her that if she didn't force me to attend they'd put me in foster care.
21:13:14 <alise> cheater99: The Over-Arching Happy Fun State of Great Britain; specifically the "National 'Health' Service" division.
21:13:18 <alise> *'Service'
21:13:38 <cheater99> why are they doing that to you
21:13:50 <Phantom_Hoover> Why do they think you're crazy?
21:13:56 <alise> cheater99: they think I'm crazy
21:13:59 <cheater99> why
21:14:06 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: because they looked at me and decided in their expert opinion that i am crazy
21:14:08 <pikhq> cheater99: The Queen in Right of Britain seems to like enabling power trips.
21:14:14 <alise> It's as much a puzzle to me as it is to you.
21:14:15 <cheater99> why have they 'looked at you'
21:14:23 <pikhq> (not: The Queen in Right of Britain is a quite distinct entity from Her Majesty)
21:14:39 <Phantom_Hoover> Evidently an unhealthy interest in typography.
21:14:42 <alise> cheater99: That's quite a long story & one I'd rather not go in to, least of all because it isn't entirely to do with me.
21:14:57 <alise> They had no prior reason to believe I was crazy, though.
21:15:06 <cheater99> alise: so can your mom put you in a different place?
21:15:19 <alise> cheater99: No.
21:15:28 <pikhq> cheater99: No, but they can expatriate.
21:15:46 <cheater99> expatriate meaning move out of britain?
21:16:23 <pikhq> Yes, that is what happens when one expatriates from a country in Great Britain.
21:16:48 <pikhq> Though typically someone who wishes to expatriate would like to leave the UK, not just one of England, Scotland, or Wales.
21:16:52 <pikhq> :P
21:16:56 <Phantom_Hoover> Can't they stop you doing that too?
21:17:07 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Not really.
21:17:10 <alise> Not unless I've committed a crime.
21:17:11 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: No; it's the NHS.
21:17:21 <Phantom_Hoover> You'd be surprised...
21:17:35 <alise> I am pretty sure I am not on any terrorist watch lists
21:17:50 <Phantom_Hoover> Workers of the NHS have often prevented me from leaving the country.
21:17:51 <alise> & I am also pretty sure that they would not have the foresight to preemptively block a completely unexpected flight.
21:17:53 <pikhq> They have the power to declare someone in their care in need of hospitalisation.
21:17:57 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Oh?
21:17:59 <alise> Do tel.
21:18:01 <alise> *tell
21:18:19 <pikhq> They do not have the power to declare someone in another nation in need of hospitalisation.
21:18:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, my parents have never let me leave the country without me, so...
21:18:36 <Phantom_Hoover> s/me,/them,/
21:18:48 <Sgeo> I'd have trouble leaving without me too
21:18:50 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Cheesy.
21:18:53 <Sgeo> ALso, curse your s//
21:18:58 <alise> *Also
21:19:24 <alise> Anyway what they say I have is OCD & some high-functioning autism spectrum disorder.
21:19:31 <Phantom_Hoover> (They don't work for the psychiatric bits, so I'm not fraternising with the enemy)
21:19:39 <alise> I will accept that I have aspects of both but together they are two labels too strong.
21:19:47 <Sgeo> alise, that's a reason to effectively lock you up WHY?
21:19:52 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, why is that grounds for sectioning?
21:19:54 <alise> I also definitely reject that I need to be sleeping in an institution all week.
21:19:56 <alise> Sgeo: Indeed!
21:19:59 <pikhq> The irony being that all their treatments are likely to make either one *worse*.
21:19:59 <alise> That's the most crazy thing.
21:20:08 <Phantom_Hoover> ONOEZ HE WILL ARRANGE THINGS
21:20:11 <alise> The only sane response even if I /did/ have those disorders would be to treat me at home!
21:20:19 <alise> Putting me in an institution is an unacceptable response.
21:20:33 <alise> Oh, did I mention I'm not allowed any internet connection?
21:20:34 <alise> At all?
21:20:40 <Sgeo> alise, I think socializing might be an important part, though
21:20:43 <Sgeo> So maybe that's the goal?
21:20:45 <alise> The only time you're allowed to use the internet is on the well-monitored, filtered-to-shit school computers.
21:20:53 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: Ah, but you might arrange things and not talk to people *online*
21:20:55 <alise> Sgeo: Socialising? You can't even go out without a trip of some sort being planned.
21:21:02 <alise> And I have no access to the internet...
21:21:08 <alise> So I could only socialise with the very few people at the unit.
21:21:15 <alise> Whoop de doo, I am newly integrated into society
21:21:21 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: Autism != not talking to people.
21:21:38 <Phantom_Hoover> I was not, in fact, being serious.
21:21:45 * pikhq , being autistic, would know
21:21:51 * Phantom_Hoover would also
21:21:54 <alise> Anyway if they knew anything about Asperger's-ish syndromes they'd know that taking one away from their "obsession" (which any right-thinking person working under the assumption that I had Asperger's would definitely deduce to be computers) is psychologically traumatic.
21:22:01 <alise> So they're fucking retards any way you cut it.
21:22:03 <Sgeo> Not all autistic people understand autism *looks selfwards*
21:22:08 <pikhq> alise: No fucking shit.
21:22:11 <pikhq> Sgeo: :P
21:22:13 <alise> Not to mention that even if all this was the "right" thing to do... it violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
21:22:17 <alise> Sgeo: I don't believe you have autism.
21:22:19 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, is anyone here *not* autistic?
21:22:24 <Phantom_Hoover> Or Aspergerial?
21:22:25 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Yes, almost everyone.
21:22:26 <cheater99> just a sec brb
21:22:30 <alise> Asperger's, well, no.
21:22:33 <alise> Wanna know why?
21:22:35 <Sgeo> alise, well, Asperger's, according to a doctor a while ago, according to my dad
21:22:44 <alise> Asperger's syndrome is SO BROADLY DEFINED that /anyone/ of a nerdy disposition has it.
21:22:52 <alise> And even a lot of people /without/ such a disposition.
21:23:01 <Phantom_Hoover> IIRC Aspergers and autism don't have well-defined boundaries
21:23:04 <alise> It's a useless label -- it refers to /nothing/.
21:23:17 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Autism is very well-defined, and very noticeable.
21:23:19 <pikhq> Asperger's is soon to cease being a diagnosis.
21:23:22 <alise> Asperger's nowadays means nothing.
21:23:28 <Phantom_Hoover> As indeed I said.
21:23:28 <alise> pikhq: Yes; they're removing it from the DSM, aren't they?
21:23:31 <alise> Of course, the DSM is a pile of shit.
21:23:32 <pikhq> alise: Yes.
21:23:44 <Sgeo> So soon I will be just "autistic"?
21:23:51 <alise> Sgeo: Soon you will just be nothing.
21:23:51 <Phantom_Hoover> Sgeo: Yes.
21:23:55 <alise> Your diagnosis was almost certainly wrong.
21:23:57 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, depends.
21:24:07 <Sgeo> alise, you've only ever known me online
21:24:07 <pikhq> But when even the DSM thinks some diagnosis is a stupid piece of shit, you can be pretty sure it's a stupid piece of shit. :P
21:24:10 <alise> You're an antisocial nerd; nothing wrong with that.
21:24:16 <alise> Sgeo: If you were autistic... We'd know.
21:24:21 <alise> You're not zzo38.
21:24:29 <pikhq> Or pikhq.
21:24:36 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: Wait, you're not particularly odd.
21:24:47 <pikhq> (zzo38 is fucking obvious, though. I mean damn.)
21:24:50 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: What are you trying to say?
21:24:52 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: ...
21:25:00 <alise> pikhq: I'd say you have pretty mild autism, based solely on your IRC persona.
21:25:08 <Phantom_Hoover> I have weird definitions of *everything*
21:25:09 <Sgeo> My dad kept emphasizing "mild"
21:25:12 <alise> Also, zzo38 is a most wonderfulest person.
21:25:18 <pikhq> alise: Mild, but noticable, yes.
21:25:27 <alise> Sgeo: Mild Asperger's? Asperger's is already so mild as to be more a block of nothing than cheese!
21:25:38 <pikhq> My IRC persona is pretty much the same as my IRL persona.
21:25:41 <Phantom_Hoover> Mm, cheese.
21:25:50 <pikhq> Yes, even including pedantic usage of language.
21:25:55 <alise> pikhq: In which case, meeting you would be awesome.
21:26:43 * Phantom_Hoover must. learn. neural. nets.
21:26:45 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Quit: Leaving).
21:27:01 <alise> he suffered from extreme self-awareness
21:27:05 <alise> He, himself, was a neural net.
21:27:10 <Sgeo> lol
21:27:15 <pikhq> alise: Hahahah.
21:27:59 <Sgeo> alise, remember how you said I shouldn't work on this project unless I'm getting paid, or think it's incredibly incredibly important, or (forgot what the third condition was)?
21:28:18 <alise> Sgeo: Yes.
21:28:25 <alise> You're hypothetically getting paid, I assume?
21:28:29 <Sgeo> I figure that I will get paid in attention
21:28:48 <alise> Then you'd be the profit's kind suffixed by "whore".
21:29:05 <Sgeo> Is there anyone who isn't?
21:29:22 <AnMaster> hm what is normal harddrive temperatures?
21:29:26 <Sgeo> My introductory speech for my speech class was how attention-seeking isn't inherently a bad thing
21:29:43 <AnMaster> 31-32 C doesn't seem too bad
21:30:51 <oklopol> "except it still looks typographically good" <<< you mean typographically non-monospacedly crappy?
21:30:52 <alise> Sgeo: I'm not an attention whore, I don't think. Just an attention slut.
21:31:01 <alise> I knew oklopol would come in <3
21:31:15 <alise> oklopol: you'd like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concrete_Roman it's like it's monospaced
21:31:20 <alise> but it also appeases typonerds like myself.
21:31:26 <Sgeo> Hm, what's the difference, exactly?
21:31:39 <Deewiant> AnMaster: Look up the specs for your model. Typically up to around 50 is fine, I think.
21:31:47 <AnMaster> oklopol, well that is a given if it was alise that said it
21:32:30 <alise> AnMaster: Firstly, shut up.
21:32:42 <AnMaster> Deewiant, ah good idea. And yeah 31 C should be fine considering the indoor temp. It went to 39 C the day it was 27 C inside. And today it is about 18 C.
21:32:46 <alise> Secondly, it was a product of Knuth; conflicting raging-AnMaster-opinions alert.
21:32:58 <alise> Sgeo: slut is slightly less severe :-)
21:33:09 <oklopol> alise: of course N->Z and Z->Q are the same thing, you're adding inverses to an operation lacking them (it's possible i haven't explicitly realized this tho)
21:33:10 <pikhq> alise: My God, I want Concrete Roman as a terminal font.
21:33:12 <pikhq> :P
21:33:22 <AnMaster> alise, it was something you could have said though
21:33:34 <alise> oklopol: yeah but the point is that you can do it "automagically"
21:33:48 <alise> and it always comes out as tuples (a,b) representing op_inv(a,b)
21:34:41 -!- Sgeo_ has joined.
21:34:56 <AnMaster> pikhq, hm... Non-monospace would be a pain in a terminal
21:35:03 <AnMaster> same goes for irc
21:35:26 <alise> Only in a shitty Unix terminal.
21:35:29 <alise> ;)
21:35:33 <alise> Also, I use a serifed font for IRC.
21:36:10 <AnMaster> alise, how does the listing in "/msg nickserv help" (without quotes, duh) look to you?
21:36:25 <alise> Readable enough.
21:36:32 <AnMaster> presumably the second column is not very well aligned though?
21:36:34 <Deewiant> You're missing out \o/
21:36:34 <myndzi> |
21:36:34 <myndzi> >\
21:36:36 <alise> It doesn't have to be aligned to see what the commands do; and how often do you look at nickserv help?
21:36:39 <alise> Far more often I talk.
21:36:46 <alise> mycroftiv: No, it's great because it looks ridiculous
21:36:48 <AnMaster> alise, well operserv then?
21:36:52 <AnMaster> ;P
21:37:01 <alise> I am not authorized to use OperServ. :P
21:37:14 <AnMaster> alise, well duh not on here. But aren't you an oper anywhere?
21:37:18 <alise> "Everything you've learned in life. In five words. GO." ;; if you can answer this, you haven't learned much.
21:37:20 <alise> AnMaster: No.
21:37:25 <alise> And I don't want to be.
21:37:27 <AnMaster> alise, I'm kind of surprised in fact.
21:37:48 <alise> Why? You know that #esoteric is about 90% of my IRC usage.
21:38:03 -!- Sgeo has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds).
21:38:17 <AnMaster> alise, no I didn't
21:38:23 <alise> Okay.
21:38:28 <Sgeo_> Must... stop... trying.. to.. be.. verbose.. on.. Twitter
21:38:30 <AnMaster> alise, I thought you were in #haskell and various other channels too?
21:38:31 <alise> I'm not sure whether to be flattered or not, then. :P
21:38:37 <alise> Sure, #haskell sometimes.
21:38:39 <alise> Still all Freenode, though.
21:38:48 <oklopol> "<Phantom_Hoover> alise: You hate like everyone." <<< she doesn't hate me
21:39:00 <oklopol> just all you idiots
21:39:02 <AnMaster> alise, freenode is a large part of my channel list too
21:39:04 <alise> Actually, here's my obligatory five-word summary: "Keep calm and carry on."
21:39:07 <oklopol> *-you
21:39:09 <alise> *obligatory joke
21:39:51 <AnMaster> alise, 50% or so from a quick guesstimate based on ocular inspection of the channel list.
21:40:15 <alise> Ocular. Really now.
21:40:20 <alise> Anyway.
21:40:27 <AnMaster> alise, well, it is correct.
21:40:43 <alise> I don't even like being an op :-)
21:40:52 <Sgeo_> Grah, removing spaces and punctuation just to fit 140chars hurt my soul
21:40:57 <alise> Usually I'm only an op so that crappy people don't become ops :p
21:41:07 <alise> Sgeo_: So don't use Twitter.
21:41:17 <AnMaster> alise, ocular: [...] 3. Seen by the eye; visual
21:41:18 <Sgeo_> alise, I mostly follow people and bots
21:41:24 <AnMaster> from http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ocular
21:41:27 <alise> Who follows you?
21:41:28 <alise> AnMaster: I know.
21:41:30 <alise> AnMaster: But come on.
21:41:36 <Sgeo_> alise, a surprisingly large number
21:41:41 <alise> Sgeo_: 4?
21:41:45 <AnMaster> alise, I rather liked the phrase "quick guesstimate based on ocular inspection"
21:41:48 <Sgeo_> 37
21:41:52 <alise> <oklopol> you're more noise sensitive than the average human?
21:41:56 <Sgeo_> Of course, my secondary account has 104 followers
21:42:07 <alise> I know I am; all my senses are quite a bit sharper than ordinary.
21:42:16 <alise> Which makes me wonder: what is everyone else missing?
21:42:25 <alise> Sgeo_: Why "of course"?
21:42:29 <AnMaster> alise, it sounds so.... hm.... hard to describe it. Not scientific. Not bureaucratic. But something along those directions.
21:42:41 <alise> AnMaster: Verbose?
21:42:42 <Sgeo_> alise, it's a bot, just tweets when a new OOTS is up
21:42:46 <Sgeo_> Far more interesting than I am
21:42:47 <alise> Sgeo_: Ah.
21:42:47 <AnMaster> alise, ah thanks :)
21:43:17 * Sgeo_ is jealous
21:43:38 <alise> AnMaster: It occurs to me upon this present time that, as I sit at my computer typing on IRC, I should consider a fact; that fact would enlighten the populace of the #esoteric channel, or at least one member of it; and it would be a very good thing to say now; and I must also consider that the identity of that fact should be known as the fact that AnMaster could be the next Dickens.
21:43:41 <AnMaster> alise, plus I seen "ocular inspection" used in a protocol to describe the process of checking a house for water damage.
21:43:58 <oklopol> "<Phantom_Hoover> Wait, is anyone here *not* autistic?" <<< i'm a normal brained healthy boy
21:44:11 <alise> who eats dog food
21:44:11 <AnMaster> it seemed rather silly. It sounds even sillier in Swedish (which was the language of the protocol): "okulär inspektion"
21:44:25 <alise> Okulr Inspektion would be a kick-ass band/album name
21:44:36 <AnMaster> alise, wonderful statement above
21:44:43 <alise> AnMaster: You'd like Dickens.
21:44:53 <alise> Which also indicates that you have terrible taste.
21:44:55 <AnMaster> alise, hm I read David Copperfield
21:45:02 <AnMaster> didn't like it that much
21:45:03 <alise> I have a feeling I can now ping pikhq to invoke horrible rage upon the name Dickens.
21:45:17 <alise> My sentence there was modelled upon the opening of Great Expectations.
21:45:18 <AnMaster> it was kind of "meh"
21:45:40 * Sgeo_ has been out of touch with non-Pratchett literature for years
21:45:51 <alise> Dickens is a bit... older than that.
21:45:57 <AnMaster> alise, don't you find writing in various verbose and bureaucratic stylistic styles fun?
21:46:00 <pikhq> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/91/JapaneseTtypewriter.jpg I cannot even begin to fathom how glad Japanese people must have been to have computers do typesetting.
21:46:06 <AnMaster> Sgeo_, quite a lot older
21:46:19 <pikhq> alise: Dickens' style was hurt quite greatly by being paid by the word.
21:46:21 <AnMaster> pikhq, how does that work
21:46:23 <Sgeo_> Well, I don't think I've read much fiction outside of Pratchett
21:46:28 <pikhq> AnMaster: Poorly.
21:46:40 <AnMaster> pikhq, well yes but where are the keys
21:46:43 <alise> pikhq: I have an innate dislike of the man himself; he was quite overly sentimental.
21:46:46 <oklopol> alise: it's not monospaced, impossible to read
21:46:53 <ais523> hmm, sorry for not saying anything all day
21:46:56 <ais523> but it's time for me to go home
21:47:04 <AnMaster> ais523, cya
21:47:04 <Sgeo_> Hm, does Calculus the Easy Way count as fiction
21:47:06 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
21:47:14 <alise> His novels seem shallow to me: they're fancies in the land of irrelevancy; disconnected to any experience that we know because they take place in a hackneyed, fake universe.
21:47:19 <Sgeo_> I mean, it's a fictional sto.. the answer's obviously yes, isn't it
21:47:19 <AnMaster> pikhq, ?
21:47:24 <alise> Sgeo_: YES BCUZ LOL CALCULUS IS HARD LOL
21:47:39 <Sgeo_> alise, um?
21:47:40 <alise> <AnMaster> pikhq, well yes but where are the keys
21:47:41 <alise> ?
21:47:44 <alise> Sgeo_: I was imitating an idiot.
21:47:45 <alise> Anyway, brb.
21:47:50 <AnMaster> alise, yes that is what I asked about
21:48:13 <AnMaster> alise, I'm unable to spot anything remotely like keys in http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/91/JapaneseTtypewriter.jpg
21:48:36 <Sgeo_> I feel like I haven't learned any math since 7th grade or so
21:48:52 <oklopol> based on oculating my chanlist freenode is 40% of my channelity
21:49:04 <AnMaster> oklopol, heh
21:49:41 -!- pikhq_ has joined.
21:50:04 <oklopol> sensitivity to senses is one of those things self-described aspies love
21:50:09 <pikhq_> Anyways. What'd I miss?
21:50:09 <AnMaster> btw, best bureaucratic phrase of all time, which I seem unable to translate to English: "grönfoderomvandlande mjölkproduktionsenhet"
21:50:16 <AnMaster> for those who know Swedish however...
21:50:19 <pikhq_> You move the handle around to select the type slug, and then the machine strikes the slug against the page.
21:50:25 <pikhq_> Last line to/from me.
21:50:25 <AnMaster> (btw it means "cow", which is usually "ko" in Swedish)
21:50:53 <pikhq_> AnMaster: Calque it?
21:50:54 <AnMaster> pikhq_, ah
21:50:57 <AnMaster> pikhq_, what?
21:51:06 -!- pikhq has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
21:51:07 <AnMaster> "Calque"?
21:51:11 <pikhq_> Translate each individual component?
21:51:17 <AnMaster> ah
21:51:18 <AnMaster> hm
21:51:21 -!- pikhq_ has changed nick to pikhq.
21:51:32 <pikhq> Calques are absurdly common in English.
21:51:55 <oklopol> "<alise> who eats dog food" <<< it all tastes almost the same, i've found
21:52:09 <AnMaster> pikhq, something like: "green fodder converting" "milk production unit"
21:52:23 <AnMaster> I'm not sure of "fodder", got it from google translate"
21:52:28 <AnMaster> s/"$//
21:52:54 <pikhq> "Fodder" is the *cognate* word.
21:53:08 <AnMaster> pikhq, what the heck does cognate mean?
21:53:25 <pikhq> Same etymological origin.
21:53:34 <AnMaster> ah
21:53:43 <oklopol> "<alise> His novels seem shallow to me: they're fancies in the land of irrelevancy; disconnected to any experience that we know because they take place in a hackneyed, fake universe." <<< the less a story has to do with life as we know it, the better it is
21:54:14 <AnMaster> pikhq, anyway, this was from a report from some municipality. A journalist I know told me about this. She had to read the report.
21:54:39 <Sgeo_> Ok, why does the Sirius XM app want to directly call phone numbers?
21:54:46 <AnMaster> pikhq, Told me she called the person who wrote it and asked how on earth he thought when he wrote it. He seemed unable to understand why it was an issue.
21:55:13 <AnMaster> kind of sad really
21:55:49 <oklopol> yay i finished the log
21:55:55 <oklopol> now shut the fuck up plz
21:56:01 <Sgeo_> What report is this?
21:56:18 -!- pikhq_ has joined.
21:56:28 <oklopol> hi pikhq_ long time no see
21:56:35 <pikhq_> XD
21:56:35 <AnMaster> Sgeo_, forgot the details
21:56:39 <pikhq_> Same etymological origin.
21:56:44 <pikhq_> Examples of cognates are English "gift" and German "gift".
21:56:47 <pikhq_> (the English means "gift". The German means "poison". It apparently developed into "poison" out of a euphemism.)
21:56:53 <pikhq_> Or "royal", "real", "regal", "raj", and a few other words. (we've got cognates for that from every single branch of Indoeuropean in the same language!)
21:57:00 <AnMaster> Sgeo_, and the journalist in question died a few years ago. So no chance of asking her.
21:57:37 <oklopol> do you have cognates from the finnish "kuninkaallinen"
21:57:38 -!- pikhq has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
21:57:53 <oklopol> oh, right, kingy
21:58:05 <oklopol> no wait
21:58:09 <oklopol> those aren't that close
21:58:18 <oklopol> except i guess cognate isn't about that
21:58:24 <pikhq_> oklopol: "Close" doesn't necessarily mean "not cognate".
21:58:31 <pikhq_> "Cow" and "bovine" are cognate.
21:58:36 <oklopol> yes this i realized before i even said what i said
21:58:37 <AnMaster> pikhq_, hm?
21:58:39 <oklopol> err
21:58:54 <AnMaster> really?
21:58:54 <oklopol> *-err
21:58:56 <pikhq_> They were the same word in Proto-indoeuropean.
21:59:02 <AnMaster> pikhq_, and what was that word
21:59:10 <AnMaster> it seems kind of hard to see a common part
21:59:22 <pikhq_> AnMaster: Lemme check.
21:59:41 <oklopol> the finnish "lehm" is a pretty good gcd
21:59:54 <oklopol> imo
22:01:28 <AnMaster> oklopol, gcd? as in greatest common divisor?
22:01:43 <pikhq_> Cannot has checking.
22:02:23 <AnMaster> pikhq_, eh?
22:02:23 <oklopol> yes
22:02:32 <pikhq_> Still, there was just a few simple phoneme shifts into "cow" and "bov", and a bunch of odder shifts from there in English...
22:02:37 <AnMaster> ah
22:02:46 <oklopol> "gcd", "inf", "meet"
22:03:26 <pikhq_> There's a very, very large number of cognates in English with a different English word, simply because we've got a lot of vocab from two major branches of Indoeuropean.
22:04:02 <alise> <oklopol> "<alise> His novels seem shallow to me: they're fancies in the land of irrelevancy; disconnected to any experience that we know because they take place in a hackneyed, fake universe." <<< the less a story has to do with life as we know it, the better it is
22:04:02 <oklopol> we imagine a tree with words as vertices and children being new cognates of their father, and take the natural meets in this tree
22:04:08 <pikhq_> Oh, and the full list of cognates: "right, rich, raj, regalia, reign, royal, real". All cognate.
22:04:09 <alise> Dickens' stories do not happen in any even imaginable universe.
22:04:41 <oklopol> "right" :D
22:04:46 <oklopol> oh also real
22:04:50 <cheater99> ok sweeties i'm back
22:04:55 <alise> <Sgeo_> I feel like I haven't learned any math since 7th grade or so
22:04:57 <oklopol> maybe we should call them royal numbers
22:04:58 <alise> do you really not understand calculus?
22:05:03 <cheater99> i am reading your scrollback
22:05:20 <alise> even I understand calculus
22:05:24 <oklopol> you can't "understand" calculus
22:05:33 <Sgeo_> alise, I learned simple calculus concepts in 6th grade, started to gain some actual understanding in 7th
22:05:36 <alise> you have to "see" it for yourself
22:05:37 <Sgeo_> And then I stagnated
22:06:02 <oklopol> that's like saying you "understand" addition; which i guess is perfectly sensible.
22:06:05 <alise> Sgeo_: f'(x) = lim h->0 (f(x+h) - f(x))/h
22:06:08 <alise> Presumably you understand that.
22:06:10 <alise> oklopol: Indeed.
22:06:17 <alise> Calculus is a very simple concept, of course.
22:06:20 <Sgeo_> yes
22:06:31 <pikhq_> Oh, gah, we've also got cognates from Latin and French and from French and French.
22:06:42 <alise> pikhq_: What about cognates from ENGLISH
22:06:52 <alise> 05:48:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Can someone opinionated on this tell me what the difference between software and normal patents is?
22:06:56 <Sgeo_> I learned everything I know from Calculus the Easy Way. Things like the quotient rule were not covered
22:06:57 <alise> normal patents are on mechanism
22:07:03 <alise> software patents are usually on abstract algorithms etc
22:07:06 <Sgeo_> We went over it in class once, I completely forgot it by now
22:07:08 <oklopol> what's the quotient rule again
22:07:08 <alise> which are expressly forbidden in normal patents
22:07:11 <Sgeo_> Although I could easily redetermine it
22:07:12 <pikhq_> alise: Define "from English".
22:07:14 <oklopol> derivative of f/g?
22:07:21 <pikhq_> There's not many words native to the language. :D
22:07:22 <alise> oklopol: yeah
22:08:03 <pikhq_> alise: Oooh, here's one.
22:08:04 <Sgeo_> Ultimately, it's just chain + multiplication + exponents(which is trivial)
22:08:24 <pikhq_> "Shadow, shade, and shede" are all from Old English sceadu.
22:08:27 <oklopol> the quotient rule is useless to memorize, you can just wp it, and once you learn differentials for functions : R^n -> R^m, you can just always deduce it in your head
22:08:28 <pikhq_> Erm. Shed.
22:08:31 <alise> i don't care much about the actual menial-labour side of finding derivatives.
22:08:47 <Deewiant> "Knight" is one
22:08:55 <cheater99> ok so in short
22:08:58 <alise> pikhq_: A shed is a shadowy shade.
22:09:06 <pikhq_> Deewiant: What's knight cognate with?
22:09:18 <Deewiant> I don't know
22:09:25 <Deewiant> But it's native to English
22:09:32 <pikhq_> Oh. Yes, yes it is.
22:09:35 <Sgeo_> In 6th grade however, I didn't quite understand that 1/x = x^-1
22:09:38 <Sgeo_> Somehow
22:09:39 <alise> 06:36:40 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: software patents have a much longer timespan relative to the length of time the thing they implement remains useful for, than hardware patents
22:09:40 <alise> 06:37:04 <ais523> a 50-year-old internal combustion engine might be outmoded nowadays, but it's still potentially useful
22:09:40 <alise> 06:37:11 <ais523> 50-year-old software is basically useless
22:09:40 <alise> 06:37:27 <ais523> so the idea of patents - to give people a limited monopoly in return for disclosing how the thing works - is subverted
22:09:41 <alise> 06:37:42 <ais523> especially as software patents tend not even to disclose how the things works nowadays
22:09:43 <alise> 06:37:50 <ais523> old inventions, the idea was you could reproduce the whole thing from the patent
22:09:43 <cheater99> tldr: alise is assburgers and gets canned in for being an evil person who plots how to explode people's hearts by dividing big numbers in his head
22:09:45 <alise> 06:38:15 <ais523> many modern hardware patents have the same problem, tbh
22:09:47 <alise> also this
22:09:50 <oklopol> Sgeo_: presumably because they didn't explain that's just a definition
22:09:51 <cheater99> did i sum it up right alise
22:09:58 <Sgeo_> This hindered my efforts to find an ideal solution to my class's "Star Lottery"
22:10:08 <alise> cheater99: yes... except i'm not assburgers any more than anyone else in here is, and I'm useless at mental arithmetic
22:10:21 <Sgeo_> I tried working it out in 7th grade, but when I tried to determine the equation that I needed to differentiate... it was 0
22:10:30 <alise> i think it's mainly their ocd diagnosis they care about, neither ocd nor aspergers warrant being an inpatient though
22:10:38 <oklopol> Sgeo_: tried working what out?
22:10:47 <Sgeo_> There was a "star lottery"
22:10:51 <cheater99> alise: that's what you think. in fact you are only a fractional-consciousness of a bigger, more evil mind
22:10:52 <Sgeo_> The class's currency was stars
22:11:18 <Sgeo_> Every day or week, I forgot which, the students would put in a number of stars, to get a chance of winning all the stars put in
22:11:24 <cheater99> alise: the one way out for you that i see is to become a t-girl, get a hormone therapy and implants, and sue anyone who treats you how you don't want 'em to
22:11:46 <alise> cheater99: That's a brilliant solution! Or, maybe I will just move country.
22:11:52 <alise> Instead of moving towards cuntry.
22:11:59 <pikhq_> alise: Being OCD warrants being a not-inpateint, in fact. :)
22:12:01 <oklopol> xDDDDDDDDDDD
22:12:06 <cheater99> alise, i moved out of the uk for good reason
22:12:07 <oklopol> alise: awesome one
22:12:13 <alise> cheater99: Where do you live now?
22:12:21 <alise> oklopol: why thank you. Somehow I think you're being sarcastic :p
22:12:25 <cheater99> there's a fucking depression there and there is absolutely no outlook for people who want to succeed
22:12:30 <cheater99> currently germany
22:12:34 <oklopol> alise: i don't know whether i am
22:12:41 <cheater99> thinking a bit of china
22:12:47 <alise> cheater99: Oh, not China.
22:12:52 <pikhq_> China's probably a bad idea.
22:12:52 <alise> Have /some/ principles!
22:12:58 <cheater99> my biggest hang-up is that i'm not that into asian women
22:13:10 <alise> I'm probably destined for the EU.
22:13:15 <oklopol> asian women are small and make squeaky noises when you fuck them
22:13:20 <alise> Easy to migrate to, and, well, most of the nice countries are there.
22:13:24 <alise> Considering some Nordic country.
22:13:25 <oklopol> the only problem with them is you can't see their genitals
22:13:25 <pikhq_> Except for Hong Kong; I could probably *manage* to live there.
22:13:27 <cheater99> alise: yes, you should come to germany with me
22:13:32 <oklopol> but usually you wouldn't anyway during sex
22:13:37 <alise> oklopol: hahaha i love you
22:13:51 <pikhq_> oklopol: Hahahah.
22:13:51 <alise> cheater99: no, you guys like fraktur
22:14:04 <alise> oklopol: you know, mice are also small and make squeaky noises when you fuck them
22:14:07 <alise> you can't see their genitals, either
22:14:11 <alise> are you sure you're not confusing the two?
22:14:30 <cheater99> alise: germany is one of the few places in europe without a fucked up economy OR fucked up government
22:14:33 <pikhq_> alise: Mice don't have pixelation bars over the genitals.
22:14:37 <alise> cheater99: But me likey Nordic countries.
22:14:44 <alise> pikhq_: They do on my hard drive 8)
22:14:51 <oklopol> alise: yeah but they aren't humans, humans make the best sex targets
22:14:52 <pikhq_> alise: :P
22:14:58 <cheater99> alise: germany has a lot of nordic appeal to it
22:15:06 <cheater99> without being extremely expensive
22:15:10 <alise> cheater99: Besides, you're all Nazis.
22:15:16 <cheater99> 'we'?
22:15:17 <cheater99> i'm polish
22:15:20 <alise> True, Nordic countries are... on the pricey side.
22:15:23 <alise> cheater99: Shut up.
22:15:25 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
22:15:34 <alise> Also, oblig.: You left the UK? GOOD RIDDANCE
22:15:36 <cheater99> alise, no u
22:15:44 <oklopol> u
22:15:45 <cheater99> alise, no u
22:15:51 <oklopol> u
22:15:51 <alise> cheater99: does germany have 100mbit interwebs
22:15:52 <cheater99> alise, no u
22:15:53 <Phantom_Hoover> No, u.
22:15:55 <oklopol> u
22:15:58 <cheater99> no, u.
22:16:00 <oklopol> u
22:16:03 <cheater99> u.
22:16:03 <Phantom_Hoover> u
22:16:05 <Phantom_Hoover> y
22:16:06 <oklopol> u...
22:16:06 <cheater99> no u
22:16:08 <alise> No "u"s.
22:16:09 <oklopol> u!
22:16:10 <pikhq_> alise: If you want 100mbit interwebs, avoid the hell out of the US. :)
22:16:13 <oklopol> alise: okay
22:16:16 <cheater99> no u
22:16:20 <alise> pikhq_: I would do that anyway, sir.
22:16:26 <oklopol> cheater99: no alise said no u
22:16:26 <cheater99> alise: yes, it does
22:16:27 <Phantom_Hoover> What about South Korea?
22:16:35 <alise> South Korea is nice.
22:16:35 <Phantom_Hoover> AFAIK they have good interwebs.
22:16:47 <alise> If you mean cheater99, never mind; if you mean me: I can't move out of the EU.
22:16:50 <Phantom_Hoover> Although it has the problem of being next to North Korea.
22:16:53 <alise> Or rather, I'm not going to.
22:16:55 <pikhq_> Phantom_Hoover: So does Japan.
22:16:57 <alise> Immigration is Hard.
22:17:03 <oklopol> i also heard us people think the sun revolves around the earth and that god exists
22:17:06 <pikhq_> Though that has the problem of having lingering racism.
22:17:12 <cheater99> south korea... umm... hello south korea is in a war with north korea?
22:17:22 <pikhq_> cheater99: As is the US.
22:17:28 <cheater99> who cares
22:17:35 <pikhq_> Have been for all of my grandmother's life.
22:17:43 <cheater99> south korea would get mushroomed
22:17:58 <pikhq_> Uh, no.
22:17:59 <alise> cheater99: they're not de facto in a war
22:18:03 <alise> only de jure :P
22:18:12 <alise> South Korea is at about as much risk as China.
22:18:15 <pikhq_> Seoul would get hammered with artillery for a weak.
22:18:21 <pikhq_> s/weak/week/
22:18:25 <alise> North Korea fires at South: Seoul suffers... then North Korea disappears overnight.
22:18:31 <pikhq_> North Korea would cease to support life.
22:18:42 <cheater99> i like spicy food but radioactive isotopes punching through a concrete wall, then my face and finally landing on my tongue is a bit too extreme
22:19:02 <alise> cheater99: North Korea will not fire at South.
22:19:04 <pikhq_> cheater99: North Korea couldn't even get a nuke *beyond Pyongyang* if they tried, y'know.
22:19:09 <alise> Simple as that.
22:19:21 <pikhq_> (Pyongyang being the capital of North Korea)
22:19:37 <pikhq_> And they've got, what, 0 nukes ATM?
22:19:44 <cheater99> y'all are underestimating human stupidity
22:19:54 <oklopol> can we talk more about derivatives or oriental vaginas?
22:19:58 <pikhq_> Y'all are overestimating North Korea's firepower.
22:20:03 <oklopol> all this politics is going over my head
22:20:16 <alise> fun fact: kim jong-il is not a total idiot
22:20:19 <pikhq_> They've got about a week's worth of artillery.
22:20:22 <cheater99> oklopol, prevent every 2nd word is 'vagina' or 'asian' randomly
22:20:23 <alise> He's evil, yes; evil but smart.
22:20:26 <Phantom_Hoover> Neural networks!
22:20:33 <alise> He would not obliterate his plaything by firing weaponry at Seoul.
22:20:37 <alise> cheater99: Prevent it!
22:20:48 <Phantom_Hoover> I'm fed up with all of this reading.
22:20:51 <pikhq_> The only reason we don't just give them the finger is that they *could* make life suck for Seoul.
22:20:53 <cheater99> *pretend
22:21:45 <alise> cheater99: Anyway, just go to Japan then :P
22:21:57 <pikhq_> It's kinda like MAD, except that one side will lose a city and the other side will lose the ability to live.
22:21:59 <cheater99> i know a bit of japanese
22:22:01 <cheater99> tiny bit
22:22:35 <cheater99> i know most hiragana and katakana and know the 'desu' form
22:22:42 <cheater99> but my accent is, like, perfect
22:22:52 <oklopol> cheater99: do you mean i should not use those words as often as i do?
22:22:56 <pikhq_> I highly doubt that your accent is perfect.
22:23:12 <pikhq_> Given that what you know is at most a few day's worth of learning.
22:23:22 <cheater99> oklopol, no, i mean you should replace every second word in our polotics conversation with those words
22:23:27 <pikhq_> How's your pitch stress?
22:23:32 <pikhq_> Erm.
22:23:35 <cheater99> because you want vaginas instead of polotics
22:23:35 <pikhq_> s/stress/accent/
22:23:39 <oklopol> cheater99: oh pretend
22:23:53 <Phantom_Hoover> cheater99: Polotics?
22:23:54 <cheater99> yez
22:23:57 <cheater99> yez
22:24:04 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: because you talked about polish people
22:24:14 <alise> Is biopic pronounced "by opick"? If not, it should be,
22:24:16 <alise> *be.
22:24:19 <Phantom_Hoover> ...No I didn't.
22:24:33 <cheater99> alise: how else?
22:24:33 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: Some stress differences, but basically.
22:24:36 <pikhq_> cheater99: Seriously, I *highly* doubt your accent is "perfect". :)
22:24:48 <alise> Good, so it's not "byoh pick".
22:24:53 <cheater99> pikhq_, it's as perfect as it can be
22:24:54 <alise> cheater99: Well, it's bio-graphical pic-ture.
22:25:01 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, that's how I would say it.
22:25:02 <pikhq_> cheater99: Doubtful.
22:25:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Byoh-pick
22:25:10 <alise> "By oppik" is nice; the how-you'd-think "Bio pick" is not.
22:25:16 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: See, I don't like that.
22:25:30 <alise> I didn't realise biopic was an abbreviation for "bio pic" at first, so I came to pronounce it as "by oppik".
22:25:40 <Phantom_Hoover> But it's "bio" and "pic" squished together.
22:25:40 <pikhq_> Probably don't even get "r" right.
22:25:41 <cheater99> pikhq_, you're comin through as a bad person again
22:26:00 <Phantom_Hoover> What accent?
22:26:04 <Phantom_Hoover> English or what?
22:26:15 <pikhq_> Phantom_Hoover: A "Japanese accent". He claims to have a perfect accent in Japanese.
22:26:26 <Phantom_Hoover> ...
22:26:29 <pikhq_> I, having spent several years learning Japanese, doubt this.
22:26:37 <cheater99> you're not polish
22:26:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Ah, of cours.e
22:26:45 <cheater99> the polish accent is very similar to japanese
22:26:54 <pikhq_> cheater99: Hahahahah... No.
22:26:55 <Phantom_Hoover> Japanese and Polish are closely related languages.
22:27:11 <alise> pikhq_: I note that the main part of your seemingly-angry-speak is apparent egotism.
22:27:23 <alise> (Note: I am making this comment as an entirely-detached observer, not an antagonist.)
22:27:31 <pikhq_> alise: Alas.
22:27:47 <pikhq_> alise: I tend to be egotistical about subjects I know a lot about.
22:28:05 <Phantom_Hoover> I have a friend who is half-Japanese.
22:28:14 <cheater99> alise, i think it's a projection-expectation motivated by low self-esteem which produces expectation of low value in other people
22:28:22 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: is it pikhq_?
22:28:32 <alise> cheater99: Or, he could just be autistic.
22:28:33 <Phantom_Hoover> No.
22:28:54 <alise> As autistic communication tends to have vastly less emotional content than is usual.
22:29:08 <cheater99> either way, i was told i have a good accent by two different japanese teachers, one who was japanese, the other lived in japan for a couple decades or something like that
22:29:12 <oklopol> what's projection-expectation
22:29:29 <oklopol> i was asked the other day if i used to live in america
22:29:31 <pikhq_> cheater99: Care to record yourself speaking in Japanese for a bit?
22:29:31 <cheater99> oklopol, i explained further in the same line
22:29:42 <cheater99> pikhq_, no microphone
22:29:54 <oklopol> but the guy who asked was a french guy so i guess that's doesn't say much :D
22:29:57 <pikhq_> Also, I've noticed that Japanese teachers seem to set the bar absurdly low for foreign learners.
22:29:58 <cheater99> *and*, more importantly, i don't care to continue a pointless argument with you
22:29:59 <Phantom_Hoover> oklopol: Fancy form of "I know you are, but what am I?"
22:30:17 <oklopol> oh and i was asked that because of my accent, i guess that's sort of important
22:30:17 <alise> cheater99: I don't think pikhq_ is actually arguing...
22:30:18 <pikhq_> Stuff like "Oh, you'll only ever learn a few hundred kanji, give up trying to do more".
22:30:19 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, maybe that's just projection
22:30:33 <cheater99> alise: what is he doing then?
22:30:43 <alise> cheater99: Strongly disagreeing.
22:30:55 <oklopol> cheater99: oh okay
22:31:17 <pikhq_> Quite strongly.
22:31:18 <oklopol> so did you mean "projection -- expectation ..."
22:31:32 <oklopol> or did you mean projection-expectation, and i'm still misunderstanding
22:31:34 <alise> Projexpectation.
22:31:40 <cheater99> no, i meant 'projection-expectation'.
22:31:46 <Phantom_Hoover> Projspectation.
22:31:58 <cheater99> projspecatcumshot
22:32:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Prospectation.
22:32:09 -!- SgeoN1 has joined.
22:32:14 <Phantom_Hoover> Proctation
22:32:22 <Phantom_Hoover> Protation.
22:32:24 <pikhq_> (seriously, though, "know the desu form"? Congrats, you've spent a couple minutes learning the language! YOU ARE WINNER)
22:32:25 <Phantom_Hoover> Potation.
22:32:28 <Phantom_Hoover> Potato.
22:32:50 <SgeoN1> I am showing irc to my grandmother
22:32:59 <Phantom_Hoover> Not a good idea.
22:33:00 <oklopol> i've learned about a hundred chinese kanji whatever they're called from just watching tv series with subtitles
22:33:09 <Phantom_Hoover> Hello, Sgeo's grandmother!
22:33:37 <Phantom_Hoover> I also know someone who once did Chinese.
22:33:43 <pikhq_> (desu is the copula. Japanese has a SOV sentence order. Subjects are followed by "wa" or "ga". CONGRATS, YOU, THE READER, KNOW THE DESU FORM!)
22:34:09 <Phantom_Hoover> Copula?
22:34:22 <pikhq_> oklopol: Kanji, hanxi, hanja, chu nom, depending on the language.
22:34:33 <alise> Desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu desu
22:34:34 <oklopol> pikhq_: actually i'm not even 100% it's chinese
22:34:37 <oklopol> :D
22:34:51 <pikhq_> Phantom_Hoover: Copulas in other languages are "is", "estas", "est"...
22:34:57 <oklopol> i call it the language i decided to start learning from subtitles
22:35:00 <pikhq_> oklopol: What language?
22:35:13 <oklopol> there's this streaming place called tudou
22:35:16 <alise> <ais523> and the longer you expose the ASIC wafer to the doping agent, the deeper the p-type or n-type region goes
22:35:21 <alise> "Doping agent" is officially the best name for weed ever.
22:35:34 <alise> "I'm exposing my thinking wafer to the doping agent... maaaan"
22:35:55 <oklopol> "i" is this weird x thing, plural is one of the few characters where density is distributed as |^|
22:35:57 <pikhq_> (note: hanja and chu nom no longer in use as normal orthographies.)
22:36:00 <alise> 12:32:59 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh, god, the Koreas are at it again.
22:36:02 <alise> Wait, it started again?
22:36:06 <oklopol> i'm sure you can deduce it from that
22:36:24 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: No newspapers in the unit?
22:36:38 <pikhq_> alise: South Korea has accused Chosen of an act of war.
22:36:40 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: No. I could watch the news, I guess, if I went to my room and fought with the tiny television.
22:36:46 <alise> I don't much see the point, though.
22:36:53 <alise> pikhq_: Because?
22:36:53 <pikhq_> Chosen is responding by preparing for war.
22:37:05 <oklopol> newspapers can be dangerous for your weak mind
22:37:07 <pikhq_> Chosen torpedoed a South Korean vessel.
22:37:53 <alise> pikhq_: So, you made me google Chosen.
22:37:58 <alise> Howsabout we call it North Korea?
22:38:07 <alise> I'll settle for Corea if you're gonna be That Guy :P
22:38:18 <oklopol> "but weekday mom, what is all this violence doing in the world :("
22:38:30 <alise> lol weekday mom
22:38:36 <oklopol> best i could do
22:38:45 <alise> the interchangability of staff as the shifts wade in and out is actually quite unnerving
22:38:49 <alise> people just disappear and appear.
22:38:58 <cheater99> alise
22:39:05 <cheater99> there's something i never understood in britain
22:39:09 <cheater99> you never see kids
22:39:10 <cheater99> EVER
22:39:14 <cheater99> where are they
22:39:15 <alise> Define kids.
22:39:19 <alise> I see teenagers an awful lot.
22:39:25 <cheater99> persons of age under 17
22:39:27 <Phantom_Hoover> cheater99: They're too busy knifing each other.
22:39:29 <alise> ...But... children... huh, you are right.
22:39:31 <cheater99> yes, you're a kid yourself
22:39:36 <cheater99> :P
22:39:37 <oklopol> cheater99: you have to look down, they're small hahaha
22:39:37 <alise> It's our overprotective culture.
22:39:42 <alise> cheater99: I know that much.
22:39:44 <cheater99> oklopol, aww
22:39:44 <oklopol> hahaha
22:39:45 <oklopol> hahaha
22:39:53 <alise> I'm small and light!
22:39:55 <cheater99> alise: ok, so let's say a 12 year old
22:39:56 <Phantom_Hoover> Also, they're never allowed out in case of paedophiles.
22:39:57 <alise> 39 kilos or thereabouts
22:39:57 <pikhq_> alise: Sorry, that's the Japanese coming through.
22:40:05 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: this
22:40:08 <cheater99> they get woken up and stay at home until 8 then go to school yes?
22:40:10 <oklopol> i've never seen alise q.e.d.
22:40:16 <cheater99> then they're at school until say 4 pm
22:40:18 <cheater99> what's next?
22:40:22 <cheater99> what happens?
22:40:25 <alise> cheater99: PRAYSTATION TREE
22:40:44 <Phantom_Hoover> I never go outside either.
22:40:50 <pikhq_> alise: It's normally shortened as 韓国 for South Korea and 朝鮮 for North Korea.
22:40:57 <pikhq_> ("Korea" and "Chosen", translated)
22:41:04 <cheater99> you mean prayushtashyonu tri
22:41:12 <alise> In the North, Kijong-dong features a number of brightly painted, poured-concrete multi-story buildings and apartments with electric lighting. These features represented an unheard of level of luxury for rural Koreans, north or south, in the 1950s. The town was oriented so that the bright blue roofs and white sides of the buildings would be the most distinguishing features when viewed from the border. However scrutiny with modern telescopic lenses reveals tha
22:41:13 <Phantom_Hoover> But there unfortunately tend to be other youths outside whenever I doo.
22:41:13 <alise> t the buildings are mere concrete shells lacking window glass or even interior rooms[17][18], with the building lights turned on and off at set times and the empty sidewalks swept by a skeleton crew of caretakers in an effort to preserve the illusion of activity.[19]
22:41:14 <alise> Wow
22:42:00 <cheater99> lol wtf is that?
22:42:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Wow indeed.
22:42:04 <cheater99> hahahah
22:42:14 <alise> cheater99: it's in the demilitarised zone
22:42:16 <cheater99> it's like that movie with jim carrey
22:42:23 <cheater99> where he's in a big tv set
22:42:29 <SgeoN1> Hi how are you
22:42:29 <alise> south korea has one too although people are actually there
22:42:32 <alise> cheater99: truman show
22:42:34 <alise> but yeah lol
22:42:36 <cheater99> yeah
22:42:37 <cheater99> lol
22:42:39 <alise> it's like they're trying to convince each other
22:42:47 <SgeoN1> That was my grandmother typing
22:42:49 <alise> "I know we've agreed not to kill each other here... but my dick is way bigger than yours."
22:42:56 <alise> SgeoN1: I hope your grandmother doesn't see that.
22:42:57 <alise> That is all
22:42:59 <cheater99> SgeoN1, tits or gtfo
22:43:07 <oklopol> :D
22:43:20 <oklopol> i was wondering why that didn't happen the first time Sgeo_ mentioned what was happening
22:43:28 <oklopol> SgeoN1: have you never been to irc?
22:43:30 <cheater99> i didn't notice
22:43:54 <alise> The official position of the North Korean government is that the village contains a 200-family collective farm, serviced by a childcare center, kindergarten, primary and secondary schools, and a hospital.[10] However, observation from the south suggests that the town is actually an uninhabited Potemkin village built at great expense in the 1950s in a propaganda effort to encourage South Korean defection and to house the PRK soldiers manning the extensive net
22:43:54 <alise> work of artillery positions, fortifications and underground marshalling bunkers that abut the border zone.[3][4][11][12] Though no visitors are allowed, it is the only settlement in North Korea within direct eye- and earshot of the Korean DMZ, and by extension, the West.
22:43:56 <SgeoN1> Are you asking me or her?
22:44:08 <cheater99> so anyways
22:44:17 <cheater99> the german eurovision contestant actually sings well
22:44:18 <cheater99> and is hot
22:44:24 <cheater99> and i would shag her
22:44:32 <cheater99> she's still loli enough for me
22:44:36 <alise> german women aren't hot, they're engineered superhumans.
22:44:46 <oklopol> SgeoN1: well i guess i was assuming you didn't want your grandma to see anything dirty, i'm not sure why.
22:44:48 <SgeoN1> I'll try Sine
22:44:50 <cheater99> she's very well engineered indeed
22:44:57 <Phantom_Hoover> SgeoN1: Your grandmother is presumably having an apoplectic fit by now.
22:45:00 <cheater99> alise: are you british english, or are you from an immigrant family?
22:45:10 <SgeoN1> Oklopol, she can barely see the screen
22:45:44 <alise> British.
22:45:47 <SgeoN1> She's not reading any of this, I'm reading for her
22:45:49 <alise> I'm about as native as they come.
22:45:59 <oklopol> cheater99: who's loli now
22:46:09 <cheater99> oklopol, german eurovision girl
22:46:31 <alise> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lena_Meyer-Landrut
22:46:32 <alise> i looked it up
22:46:33 <Phantom_Hoover> If Sgeo's grandmother knows what loli is I'm more than a little disturbed.
22:46:42 <cheater99> alise: are you like, the kind of british person who wouldn't look out of place spectating polo or tennis or in a gentlemen's club?
22:46:44 <Phantom_Hoover> AAH!
22:46:47 <SgeoN1> Well, she want to eat now. I'm saying bye on her behalf
22:46:54 <alise> cheater99: Um. I'm 14.
22:47:03 <cheater99> alise: yeah, but i mean when you grow up
22:47:04 <cheater99> and are 30
22:47:05 <alise> I look very female though :P
22:47:09 <cheater99> SgeoN1, BYE!!! COME BACK SOON
22:47:15 <Phantom_Hoover> So you wear ridiculous dresses?
22:47:16 <alise> Sgeo_: EAT COCKS
22:47:22 <cheater99> lise: tht's not what i'm asking about
22:47:26 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: No, I just have long hair and a relatively ambiguous face.
22:47:26 <cheater99> alise*
22:47:36 <alise> *Tht
22:47:42 <alise> Always capitalise the first letter of sentences
22:47:43 <oklopol> cheater99: i wouldn't say she's very loli
22:47:48 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: Wear a fake beard.
22:47:51 <cheater99> alise, would you make a good t-girl
22:47:52 <cheater99> ?
22:47:59 <cheater99> oklopol, she's got a small build
22:48:07 <alise> cheater99: You just want me to grow breasts, don't you.
22:48:10 <Phantom_Hoover> Or a moustache.
22:48:17 <cheater99> oklopol, you should see her in 'live' broadcasts
22:48:20 <cheater99> alise: yes
22:48:27 <Phantom_Hoover> Indeed, you could have a ridiculous handlebar.
22:48:27 <alise> haha I thought by she you meant me
22:48:33 <cheater99> alise: i want you to be a magnificent being
22:48:41 <Phantom_Hoover> AND SIDEBURNS/
22:48:42 <oklopol> cheater99: yes probably
22:48:43 <alise> Creepy level rising.
22:48:56 <oklopol> i've seen alise in live broadcasts
22:48:59 <Phantom_Hoover> oerjan! fizzie! lament!
22:49:03 <oklopol> or at least ones recorded just for me
22:49:07 <oklopol> which is even better
22:49:10 <cheater99> alise: you should totally get on stickam
22:49:29 <oklopol> but it was not for masturbation purposes, it was about music
22:49:30 <alise> oklopol: no you haven't :P
22:49:35 <oklopol> oh umm
22:49:35 <alise> i don't think
22:49:37 <alise> I don't recall
22:49:39 <cheater99> what sort of music?
22:49:42 <oklopol> yes i think i have
22:49:47 <alise> cheater99: It was me demonstrating my inability to play the theremin
22:49:53 <oklopol> partly
22:49:55 <alise> Also, I am not going on webcam.
22:49:58 <Phantom_Hoover> You have a theremin?
22:50:00 -!- bsmntbombdood_ has joined.
22:50:00 <alise> Clothed or otherwise.
22:50:02 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Yes.
22:50:07 <Phantom_Hoover> I want to play one.
22:50:12 <Phantom_Hoover> With my cat.
22:50:16 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: It's hard. You won't be able to do it.
22:50:19 <oklopol> i'm gonna play one when i go visit alise
22:50:20 -!- bsmntbombdood has quit (Read error: Operation timed out).
22:50:23 <oklopol> and i'm gonna own at it
22:50:24 <Phantom_Hoover> Or indeed to put my cat on it.
22:50:27 <cheater99> alise, the key is to maintain relative pitch.. you can't maintain absolute pitch on it
22:50:28 <Sgeo_> When I told her that there are some people who, upon seeing that someone brought their grandmother to IRC, would say dirty things just to be mean, she said she didn't want to talk to that sort of person
22:50:29 <alise> oklopol: I thought I was visiting you
22:50:31 <oklopol> alise is gonna go like WTF DUDE
22:50:32 <oklopol> oh
22:50:34 <oklopol> well bring it
22:50:38 <alise> Sgeo_: lollll
22:50:44 <alise> oklopol: ok
22:50:54 * Phantom_Hoover heads for alise's location with a giant magnet
22:50:56 <Sgeo_> But no, she only knows what I told her of chat, which is very, very, little
22:51:18 <Sgeo_> So she didn't hear anything of lolis, or Tits or GTFO, or any such thing
22:51:25 <cheater99> what!!
22:51:29 <alise> Until 2004, massive loudspeakers mounted on several of the buildings continuously delivered DPRK propaganda broadcasts directed towards the south as well as propaganda radio broadcasts across the border.[17] In May 2010, due to the sinking of the ROKS Cheonan, South Korea resumed broadcasting news, western music and programmes comparing the political and economic situations on the two parts of the peninsula.[20]
22:51:31 <Phantom_Hoover> Theremins?
22:51:32 <cheater99> i didn't say lolis to be mean
22:51:38 <cheater99> and i said tits or gtfo to be nice
22:51:46 <alise> cheater99: lol
22:51:47 <cheater99> what's wrong with you man :<
22:52:02 <oklopol> "<cheater99> alise, the key is to maintain relative pitch.. you can't maintain absolute pitch on it" kinda like you can't sing in absolute pitch
22:52:27 <cheater99> you can sing in absolute pitch *sometimes*
22:52:35 * Sgeo_ wonders if there are good IRC channels for seniors
22:52:43 <alise> yes
22:52:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Not on Freenode.
22:52:46 <alise> there is a list on lemonparty.org
22:52:48 <cheater99> but for this your voice and/or hearing have to be imperfect in very specific ways
22:52:50 <alise> :|
22:52:56 <cheater99> irc.lemonparty.org
22:53:26 <oklopol> cheater99: my point was (you'd know if you'd read my mind) that that's not helpful to alise in any way
22:53:29 <cheater99> actually i don't remember the irc server's domain.. check lemonparty.org for their list of ervers or something
22:53:42 <cheater99> oklopol, that totally didn't come through
22:53:51 <oklopol> well i didn't say anything related to it
22:53:59 <cheater99> yes. you haven't.
22:54:19 <oklopol> i have my own ways of communicating and people seem to love them
22:54:30 <alise> for some reason I'm flattered that cheater99 thinks i should grow breasts
22:54:34 <alise> i don't think that actually makes any sense
22:54:40 <cheater99> awww lena is so cute
22:54:45 <oklopol> who's lena
22:54:51 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, it happened to Turing...
22:55:01 <oklopol> i herd turing was a homo
22:55:02 <Phantom_Hoover> Really bad taste, that.
22:55:09 <cheater99> that neurovision girl from germany
22:55:13 <alise> lena is presumably that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lena_Meyer-Landrut girl again
22:55:15 <Phantom_Hoover> I feel sullied having said it.
22:55:26 <oklopol> oh
22:55:29 <oklopol> :D
22:55:32 <oklopol> i didn't read the name
22:55:34 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:55:39 <cheater99> turing was the first trans-sexual in computing!
22:55:49 <Phantom_Hoover> You fail at stuff.
22:55:55 <alise> also the first snow white
22:55:58 <oklopol> yeah i heard something like he was a gay homosexual
22:56:00 <Phantom_Hoover> He was chemically castrated.
22:56:08 <cheater99> you're filling big shoes alise
22:56:10 <oklopol> i read a book about him
22:56:14 <oklopol> as a kid
22:56:27 <cheater99> no he wasn't castrated he was given estrogen
22:56:35 <cheater99> which made him grow breasts
22:56:40 <cheater99> = trans
22:56:40 <alise> cheater99 speaks truth.
22:56:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Chemically castrated.
22:56:51 <alise> cheater99: is it really trans/gender/ if he was male, though?
22:56:55 <alise> transsexual, yes.
22:56:57 <alise> transgender no
22:57:08 <cheater99> i said trans-sexual
22:57:17 <cheater99> trans-gender means post-op i think
22:57:21 <cheater99> but i might be wrong
22:57:31 <alise> no
22:57:32 -!- MigoMipo has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
22:57:37 <Phantom_Hoover> "Turing was given a choice between imprisonment or probation conditional on his agreement to undergo hormonal treatment designed to reduce libido. He accepted chemical castration via oestrogen hormone injections.[41]"
22:57:41 <oklopol> maybe turing was actually transhuman, and would've outgrown any human sex or gender eventually?
22:57:45 <alise> transgender -- gender identity; i.e. "you" in your mind; transsexual -- genitals
22:57:54 <Phantom_Hoover> *Not* transsexual.
22:57:55 <alise> usually transgendered people have a goal to become transsexuals.
22:58:04 <Phantom_Hoover> Nor transgendered, in fact.
22:58:05 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: estrogen, though.
22:58:07 <alise> he grew boobs.
22:58:09 <Phantom_Hoover> Not the same.
22:58:12 <alise> QED.
22:58:14 <cheater99> he grew tits
22:58:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Not transsexual.
22:58:21 <cheater99> Q FUCKING E D
22:58:31 <cheater99> Phantom_Hoover is trolling
22:58:32 <cheater99> !op
22:58:38 <Phantom_Hoover> Secondary sexual characteristics != transsexual.
22:58:40 <oklopol> i mean he was pretty awesome, much of the stuff neumann is world-famous for was done by turing as well, and iirc turing has some sort of machines named after him too
22:58:48 <alise> ok then hermaphrodite
22:58:49 <alise> twice the fun
22:58:57 <Phantom_Hoover> NO!
22:58:59 <cheater99> you mean von neumann?
22:58:59 <oklopol> (probably some sort of gay sex machines but it's still pretty cool)
22:59:03 <oklopol> yes
22:59:12 <cheater99> or do you mean neumann the guy who came up with microphones
22:59:12 <cheater99> ok
22:59:18 <alise> actually i'd probably go for an hermaphroditing operation, that would be cool
22:59:35 * oklopol waits for someone to check if that's even consistent timelinewise
22:59:41 <oklopol> i don't really trust my memory
22:59:44 <cheater99> i've seen some post-op porn
22:59:46 <cheater99> it wasn't hot
23:00:00 <cheater99> oh wait
23:00:03 <Phantom_Hoover> Look, Turing had oestrogen. This caused him to be chemically castrated (i.e. making him infertile and reducing his libido)
23:00:10 <cheater99> alise: www.buckangel.com
23:00:10 <alise> yeah but post-op gets rid of your penis
23:00:13 <Phantom_Hoover> It did *not* make him female.
23:00:13 <alise> and gives you a bad vagina
23:00:28 <alise> hermaphroditation would keep the peen
23:00:32 <alise> no loss, you see
23:00:40 <cheater99> but the vagina is still bad
23:00:50 <oklopol> Phantom_Hoover: why do you want this to be looked at, it's irrelevant
23:01:01 <alise> cheater99: ffff why did you link me to that
23:01:07 <Phantom_Hoover> It's pedantry.
23:01:08 <alise> cheater99: who said, i'm describing a magical operation
23:01:13 <Phantom_Hoover> It's always relevant
23:01:19 <alise> nobody's thought of how to do it yet, therefore i declare that it produces a perfectly fine vagina
23:01:30 <cheater99> alise: so you know what you're gettin' in2
23:01:57 <alise> cheater99: I never said I would get into it
23:02:05 <alise> I jokingly said I would hypothetically get into a hypothetical operation
23:02:10 <cheater99> <alise> actually i'd probably go for an hermaphroditing operation, that would be cool
23:02:19 <cheater99> *actually* is the opposite of *hypothetically*
23:02:36 <Phantom_Hoover> Not when the operation itself is hypothetical.
23:02:36 <alise> *shut up* is the opposite of *don't shut up*
23:02:42 <alise> anyway, I said
23:02:44 <alise> "actually, I'd ..."
23:02:47 <alise> if you fix the punctuation
23:02:51 <alise> in this instance actually means
23:02:55 <alise> "contrary to what I previously said, ..."
23:03:03 <oklopol> who wouldn't be hermaphrodited, you'd get to do all kinds of stuff
23:03:31 <Phantom_Hoover> I feel it necessary at this point to mention the Culture.
23:03:42 <alise> I want to read the Culture books sometime.
23:03:44 <oklopol> who's the culture?
23:03:51 <oklopol> oh books
23:04:01 <Phantom_Hoover> alise: DO IT.
23:04:15 <Phantom_Hoover> Unless books aren't allowed into the unit.
23:04:40 <Phantom_Hoover> (Start on The Player Of Games)
23:04:51 <Phantom_Hoover> (Consider Phlebas is just confusing)
23:05:03 <cheater99> alise: you're trying to talk yourself out of what you are
23:05:03 <cheater99> :D
23:05:20 <oklopol> what do you mean
23:05:47 <alise> cheater99: go and pioneer the hermaphroditing operation then
23:05:52 <alise> i'll be 43rd in line
23:06:06 <cheater99> ok but first you have to jack off to that: http://buckangelentertainment.com/promo/muscleman.jpg
23:06:07 <Phantom_Hoover> The first 42?
23:06:21 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: I will start at the beginning and continue on until I reach the end, and then stop.
23:06:33 <alise> cheater99: no
23:06:39 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: well it might go wrong
23:06:46 <cheater99> come on
23:06:56 <cheater99> don't be a fun spoiler
23:07:06 <alise> I'm sort of doubting that you're not kidding now :P
23:07:12 <oklopol> cheater99: you don't see the pussy that well
23:07:32 <oklopol> i guess that's art
23:07:33 <cheater99> oklopol, http://buckangelentertainment.com/promo/laidback.jpg
23:07:46 <cheater99> witness the magnificence
23:07:58 <oklopol> much better
23:08:18 <alise> Phantom_Hoover: Anyway, I'm delaying reading too many books 'til I'm out of the unit.
23:08:24 <alise> Not a clear enough mind to fully enjoy them.
23:08:26 <cheater99> oklopol, how old are you?
23:08:31 <alise> cheater99: he's 21 or sth
23:08:36 <alise> he's always been this fun
23:08:38 <oklopol> yeah or sth
23:08:39 <cheater99> wow that was quick
23:08:44 <cheater99> ok, 21..
23:08:47 <alise> or sth
23:08:48 <cheater99> not loli enough anymore ;[
23:09:00 <alise> i'm pretty sure he still looks loli
23:09:03 <alise> although is it loli when it's male
23:09:05 <alise> i don't think it is sir
23:09:35 <oklopol> wait was cheater99 gay
23:09:49 <alise> have you considered "bi"
23:09:58 <cheater99> who what
23:09:59 <alise> or just plain "pedo" :p
23:10:00 <oklopol> no
23:10:05 <oklopol> i have not
23:10:15 <cheater99> you people must be talking about someone else
23:10:49 <oklopol> "<cheater99> not loli enough anymore ;[" <<< i understood this as you being sad about not being able to get a boner off me anymore
23:10:49 <cheater99> ok is the movie 'anatomy' cool
23:10:54 <cheater99> oh it's a german movie
23:10:55 <oklopol> because i'm too old
23:10:56 <cheater99> you can't know
23:10:58 <oklopol> therefore gay pedo
23:11:07 <cheater99> they start off by showing a naked woman
23:11:15 <alise> cheater99: i use sven s porst to get all my german opinions
23:11:28 <cheater99> what is sven s porst
23:11:33 <alise> he's this guy http://earthlingsoft.net/ssp/blog/
23:12:09 <Phantom_Hoover> That reminds me of Quarter Life...

23:14:00 <cheater99> alise, ok, why?
23:14:13 <cheater99> alise, as in, why are you reading that blog in the first place
23:14:25 <alise> cheater99: because he used to be a nice ranty guy when i used os x and was sufficiently OCD about tiny things that apple fucked up... so i just started reading his blog
23:14:45 <alise> need: "german guy who has opinions": satisfied
23:14:59 <cheater99> why did you have that need
23:14:59 <oklopol> i have an opinion
23:15:11 <oklopol> do you need finnish guy who has an opinion
23:15:14 <alise> cheater99: well you just asked me an opinion on a german thing
23:15:14 <alise> so...
23:15:16 <alise> oklopol: yes
23:15:22 <alise> oklopol: what is your opinion
23:15:22 <oklopol> nnnnice.
23:15:25 <oklopol> on what?
23:16:00 <alise> oklopol: you said you had an opinion
23:16:00 <alise> what is it
23:16:04 <cheater99> alise: yes, but i think you said you had that need before you started habitually reading his blog
23:16:06 <oklopol> oh
23:16:10 <oklopol> that it's a good thing
23:16:23 <alise> oklopol: what is it
23:16:26 <alise> cheater99: nope
23:16:30 <Phantom_Hoover> oklopol: What is your opinion of oranges.
23:16:39 <cheater99> wat den
23:16:47 <oklopol> i don't particularly care for oranges, because they are hard to eat
23:16:57 <Oranjer> :(
23:17:06 <alise> oranges are just a bit meh.
23:17:07 <cheater99> lol
23:17:13 <cheater99> this guy woke up on an operation table

23:18:07 <alise> Sgeo_: gahahaha.
23:18:10 <cheater99> you guys need to watch this movie
23:18:11 <oklopol> in my opinion food should be eatable without any complications, i tolerate a few minutes of preparatory work per serving, but oranges need concentration during the whole eating process, because they spill their spillings everywhere and shit
23:18:15 <Sgeo_> (Note: It didn't happen to me)
23:18:39 <alise> i spill my spillings everywhere and shit LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO

23:19:00 <cheater99> half-stripped of flesh in random places
23:19:17 <Rugxulo> what movie?
23:19:17 <cheater99> it looks fairly silly but it's believable in the moment
23:19:48 <oklopol> caring about people you don't know is against human nature and makes everyone sad
23:20:06 <cheater99> 'anatomie'
23:20:10 <cheater99> or 'anatomy' in english
23:20:27 <Sgeo_> What about people known by people I know?
23:20:41 <oklopol> Sgeo_: ah, interesting
23:20:43 <alise> you get five degrees
23:20:46 <oklopol> let us think about this
23:20:46 <alise> six includes everyone
23:20:49 <alise> so five is the max
23:20:57 <cheater99> five degrees of kevin bacon
23:21:06 <alise> six degrees of paul erdos
23:21:16 <cheater99> eight degrees of bill gates
23:21:35 <alise> one degree of hivemind
23:21:40 <AnMaster> XD
23:21:43 <cheater99> :O
23:21:49 <alise> actually it would be zero degrees
23:21:55 <oklopol> what degrees
23:22:01 <oklopol> Sgeo_
23:22:01 <AnMaster> Kelvin
23:22:04 <cheater99> that's what shocked me
23:22:09 <AnMaster> oklopol, ^
23:22:10 <cheater99> the '1'
23:22:15 <oklopol> : i think you should pretend to care about them when interacting with people who know them
23:22:21 <oklopol> that's the humane thing to do
23:22:31 <AnMaster> oklopol, who was that directed to?
23:22:36 <alise> I think that if oklopol were ever to come into control of the world, we would all be fucked.
23:22:42 <alise> And I'm not even sure which sense of the word I mean.
23:22:48 <AnMaster> alise, XD
23:23:03 <pikhq_> alise: DOG FOOD FOR EVERYONE
23:23:05 <oklopol> no i would be a great dictator just because they say dictators always go mad with power and kill everyone
23:23:27 <AnMaster> pikhq_, aww, no soylent green?
23:23:30 <oklopol> that sort of reverse psychology works well on me
23:23:42 <alise> oklopol: i would really hate it if you said "quack" right now
23:23:57 <oklopol> that kind does not
23:24:07 <alise> oklopol: it's well known that oklopols do not say "quack".
23:24:08 <alise> ever
23:24:20 <AnMaster> oklopol, I suggest you say "tweet" right here
23:24:22 <AnMaster> ;P
23:24:24 <oklopol> that's better already
23:24:26 <oklopol> tweet
23:24:30 <AnMaster> XD
23:24:36 <AnMaster> better than quack anyway
23:24:47 <alise> "tweet" right here boy ;P

23:25:30 <oklopol> which would mean microwave
23:25:35 <oklopol> i don't cae sentence
23:25:47 <oklopol> what yes
23:25:48 <alise> just call up a pizza delivery place and give them moneys

23:26:53 <AnMaster> what? really?
23:27:34 <Rugxulo> put the money through the mail slot, they'll leave it at the door, get it when they leave

23:28:19 <oklopol> "hello pizza bad english man here"
23:28:32 <alise> oklopol: you could use your internet-connected pizza dispenser
23:28:34 <oklopol> but in other ways too
23:28:36 <alise> it should be plugged into your computer
23:28:41 <oklopol> i wish i had one of those
23:28:43 <alise> go to pizza:/// to browse the available pizza options for that device

23:30:49 <AnMaster> uh summer break starts in about 1-2 weeks or such
23:30:59 <AnMaster> and ends sometime in August
23:31:03 <oklopol> is Rugxulo swedish
23:31:04 <Rugxulo> BTW, all I wanted to say the other day was that Erlang seems a bit strange for Befunge-98
23:31:07 <Rugxulo> no
23:31:07 <AnMaster> oklopol, no
23:31:10 <Rugxulo> American
23:31:16 <alise> oh
23:31:19 <alise> not me then :P
23:31:29 <Rugxulo> some (most?) schools over here just started break
23:31:43 <oklopol> alise: are you really embarrassed
23:31:49 <AnMaster> well, last dead line is June 11. for a lab report
23:31:58 <Rugxulo> AnMaster: oh, and Rexx supports bignums out-of-the-box, but it may not be what you want
23:32:02 -!- FireFly has quit (Quit: swatted to death).
23:32:03 <AnMaster> some exams on monday and uh thursday iirc
23:32:05 <alise> oklopol: no
23:32:12 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, rexx?
23:32:18 <Rugxulo> yes, remember I mentioned it before?
23:32:27 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, yeah but I don't remember what it was
23:32:30 <AnMaster> but I remember the name
23:32:42 <oklopol> alise: good to know
23:32:43 <Rugxulo> popular scripting language for OS/2 and Amiga and IBM mainframes
23:32:55 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, none of those platforms are relevant to me
23:33:00 <Rugxulo> obviously
23:33:15 <Rugxulo> it's also been ported to most other platforms (see Regina or BRexx for Linux)
23:33:18 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, now, if plan9 had been in the list it might have been different.
23:33:22 <AnMaster> anyway
23:33:41 <Rugxulo> remember? I mentioned ooREXX, which you didn't seem too impressed with ;-)
23:33:43 <AnMaster> go write befunge98 in it yourself :)
23:33:57 <Rugxulo> don't want or need to (and already wrote B93, which was easy)
23:34:24 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, apart from smalltalk and (to some degree) objc, there are few languages which are doing OOP the "right way" IMO
23:34:36 <Rugxulo> oh, the other advantage of REXX is easy to learn, no reserved keywords, good string handling, etc.
23:34:38 <alise> OOP the right way: "Nothing whatsoever"
23:34:48 <Rugxulo> OOP is a big buzzword for most things these days
23:34:54 <AnMaster> alise, well, relatively speaking. Also I thought you liked smalltalk?
23:34:55 <Rugxulo> almost all languages have it
23:35:03 <Rugxulo> all hyped languages, anyways
23:35:07 <alise> Smalltalk is not "OOP" at all really.
23:35:16 <Rugxulo> yet it inspired Objective-C
23:35:37 <AnMaster> alise, well, maybe, depends on exact definition of OOP
23:35:54 <alise> Ask Alan Kay if you don't believe me :)
23:36:00 <AnMaster> alise, who?
23:36:08 <alise> ?!
23:36:17 <alise> Only the most important person in the history of personal computing.
23:36:27 <Rugxulo> Bill Gates? ;-) j/k
23:36:27 <AnMaster> alise, I invoke ais523 on you
23:36:33 <alise> Invented the portable computer -- Dynabook; invented Smalltalk; major guy at Xerox PARC...
23:36:36 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, Linus Torvalds!
23:36:40 <alise> No, seriously; ais523 knows who Alan Kay is.
23:36:43 <Rugxulo> what about Douglas Engbart (sp?) ?
23:36:54 <alise> Rugxulo: Yes, him too.
23:37:00 <Rugxulo> RMS invented teh GNU, he pwns Lin00z!
23:37:03 <alise> But seriously... anyone who doesn't know Kay should not be in computing.
23:37:05 <Rugxulo> (sarcasm)
23:37:12 <AnMaster> oh wait. Theo de Raadt!
23:37:15 * AnMaster runs
23:37:33 <Rugxulo> oh, and don't forget Andy Tannenbaum, Kernighan and Ritchie, Wirth, etc. etc.
23:37:57 <AnMaster> alise, I suck at remembering names. Had to google openbsd to check the name of the guy (Theo de Raadt that is)
23:38:05 <Rugxulo> Fabrice Bellard probably counts too ;-)
23:38:18 <alise> "Actually I made up the term "object-oriented", and I can tell you I did not have C++ in mind. ...Or Smalltalk." --Alan Kay
23:38:22 <alise> (inventor of Smalltalk)
23:38:41 <Rugxulo> C++ borrowed from Simula
23:38:46 <Rugxulo> or so I heard
23:38:53 <pikhq_> I doubt anyone could have C++ in mind when discussing anything vaguely related to good design.
23:38:58 <AnMaster> alise, heh
23:39:16 <AnMaster> pikhq_++
23:39:16 <alise> Seriously, Kay is a genius and even his recent work at VPRI is great.
23:39:21 -!- pikhq_ has changed nick to pikhq.
23:39:25 <Rugxulo> C++ is perfect! (five years later) no, now it's perfect! (five years later) okay, seriously, now it's perfect
23:39:29 <AnMaster> (pun intended)
23:39:42 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, it never was and never will be
23:40:09 <pikhq> Rugxulo: Even a *simple* change would make using it less like getting kicked in the crotch: garbage collection.
23:40:16 <Rugxulo> seriously, why does every language get extended into OOP?
23:40:24 <alise> Rugxulo: hype.
23:40:36 <alise> "object-oriented programming is the roman numerals of computing" --Rob Pike.
23:40:43 <pikhq> (still annoying, but god... *Manual memory management* with all that going on.)
23:40:53 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, no. Erlang doesn't have OOP.
23:41:28 <AnMaster> and there is a HUGE resistance to it amongst the core devs.
23:41:33 <alise> Erlang++
23:41:48 <Rugxulo> every other language seems to tack it on
23:41:50 <pikhq> Rugxulo: Haskell allows for abstract datatypes which can contain functions that can close over the value of that abstract datatype.
23:42:07 <AnMaster> alise, do you know why erlang doesn't JIT btw? Because it makes the (soft) realtime properties harder to predict
23:42:12 <pikhq> Thus, it allows for OOP by accident. :P
23:42:23 <alise> soft and welcoming.
23:42:32 <alise> pikhq: i turned you into a haskell zealot
23:42:32 <alise> aww
23:42:33 * Rugxulo gives Erlang an Exlax so it can JIT properly
23:42:34 <alise> cute
23:42:39 <oklopol> Zuu: btw you are familiar with thue right?
23:42:42 <pikhq> (note: no mutation, thus making "OOP" not useful.)
23:42:43 <alise> :3
23:42:51 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, exlax?
23:42:56 <Rugxulo> laxative
23:43:04 <AnMaster> I don't get the joke still
23:43:14 <Rugxulo> poop inducer
23:43:17 <AnMaster> unless... no it can't be that bad
23:43:23 <pikhq> alise: :P
23:43:24 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, yes I know what a laxative is
23:43:25 <Rugxulo> JIT as in rhyming with sh*t
23:43:37 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, okay even worse than I thought
23:43:38 * Rugxulo has to explain his horribly corny joke, ugh, sounds worse than it was
23:43:39 <pikhq> Rugxulo: You seem to not grok what a JIT does.
23:43:40 <AnMaster> shame on you
23:43:46 <pikhq> Oh. Wait.
23:43:49 <pikhq> Terrible pun.
23:43:55 <pikhq> You seem to make terrible puns.
23:43:56 <AnMaster> pikhq, I thought it was a pun on "shit just in time or such"
23:43:59 <AnMaster> but this is worse
23:44:01 <AnMaster> much worse
23:44:06 <Rugxulo> yes, I admit, my humor is lame
23:44:14 <AnMaster> Rugxulo, worse than mine in fact
23:44:17 <AnMaster> which is quite a feat
23:45:01 <oklopol> yeah that was horribly bad
23:45:07 <oklopol> shame on you
23:45:27 <oklopol> sometimes i like to poop out these horribly bad jokes just because i can
23:45:30 <Rugxulo> quack, tweet, ...
23:45:42 <alise> ah, here's some demonstration of elliottcable faggotry
23:45:47 <alise> [[/* I wrote Hello, world! for whatever mad, mad genius wrote this version of Brainfuck: http://pastie.org/private/siw6uoan1cd6shuao7r8hw */]]
23:46:06 <alise> and ``unicode quotes''
23:46:44 <oklopol> i don't get that at all
23:47:01 -!- gm|lap has joined.
23:47:04 <oklopol> how can the parens be un matched like that
23:47:24 <alise> itz wacky
23:47:27 <AnMaster> oklopol, I think it is two columns?
23:47:32 <alise> nope
23:47:35 <alise> one of those is one instruction
23:47:39 <alise> HAHAHA EVIL GENIUSDF sdoijghk hAHAhasf
23:47:45 <AnMaster> alise, one of the is C!
23:47:47 <oklopol> can i see the program?
23:47:59 <oklopol> or is it too scary
23:48:06 -!- Rugxulo has quit (Quit: Ayttm logging off).
23:48:11 <AnMaster> alise, so yes I think it is two columns, one weird, and one C
23:48:13 <alise> Wow, elliottcable calls **s "metapointers".
23:48:24 <alise> http://gist.github.com/402586
23:48:29 <AnMaster> alise, would ***s be hyperpointers then?
23:48:30 <alise> apparently the name of the language is "bewbs"
23:48:33 <alise> ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
23:48:48 <alise> http://gist.github.com/290108 you make me want to murder your person
23:48:53 <AnMaster> oh wait, superpointers, ****s would be hyperpointer
23:48:56 <alise> http://gist.github.com/raw/295344/fbf2ac6ab9e5df7414a126d8f98272ee745d0fcd/gistfile1.txt <-- ITT: irritating retard
23:49:07 <alise> (elliottcable that is)
23:49:11 <alise> also he's a republican
23:49:13 <alise> in alaska
23:49:18 <alise> I.E.: he likes sarah palin
23:49:46 <AnMaster> ouch
23:49:49 <alise> also, he was part of the overnight Let's Fuck Up IRCNomic with Stupid Rules that Only Further the Game's Demise, then Say "lol" About It brigade
23:49:56 <alise> what I am saying is: if he returns here...
23:50:01 <alise> let's tell him to fuck off
23:50:08 <AnMaster> up to youy
23:50:10 <AnMaster> you*
23:50:21 <alise> i'm absent 5/7 weekdays.
23:50:23 <Sgeo_> alise, I don't remember that
23:50:33 <alise> Sgeo_: i was the only one who read the logs
23:50:40 <alise> and fixed shit
23:50:51 <Sgeo_> Do the logs still exist anywhere?
23:50:58 <Sgeo_> Also, iirc, I sold my soul to you
23:51:40 <oklopol> i think metapointer might be okay terminology in some contexts
23:51:48 <alise> oklopol: he just made it up to sound faggy there though
23:51:52 <alise> and to cover up the fact that he doesn't know C
23:51:58 <alise> also note that he painstakingly uses unicode ellipses
23:52:02 <alise> where three .s would do
23:52:09 -!- tombom has quit (Quit: Leaving).
23:52:18 <alise> < clusty>what does dmesg have to say abut it?
23:52:18 <alise> -!- You're now known as dmesg
23:52:18 <alise> < dmesg>nothing.
23:52:18 <alise> -!- You're now known as elliottcable
23:52:19 <alise> --his BLAG
23:52:22 <alise> ha ha HAHAHAHAHAhahash
23:52:25 <alise> that's fucking hilarious.
23:52:33 <oklopol> yes that was horrible, that's like non-monospaced^7 when you take ... and squeeze it in one letter
23:52:50 <alise> http://elliottcable.tumblr.com/post/614173094/http-elliottcable-tumblr-com-post-389548350-terna half the posts on his blog are just himself being fucktarded
23:53:13 <AnMaster> alise, are you obsessed with this guy or?
23:53:22 <oklopol> well of course, they have the same name
23:53:23 <alise> actually, no
23:53:29 <alise> it's just he was a huge fucking retard & asshole to me a while back
23:53:30 * Sgeo_ is very curious about what alise says behind my back
23:53:35 <alise> so I decided to dredge up everything about him I could
23:53:45 <alise> to admire how idiotic he was
23:53:57 <alise> also all of this is very easy to find in like a few clicks and i don't have anything else to do
23:53:59 <alise> Sgeo_: not much.
23:54:28 <oklopol> http://elliottcable.tumblr.com/post/597606519/we-want-to-fly-the-plane-say-snakes-but <<< xD
23:54:30 <oklopol> i lol'd
23:55:02 -!- Rugxulo has joined.
23:55:27 <cheater99> what's going on bitches
23:55:53 <pikhq> Well, your mother is a bitch.
23:55:55 <Rugxulo> not much
23:56:19 <Sgeo_> Hm, why does Pandora have my RL name?
23:56:20 <Sgeo_> :(
23:56:21 <Rugxulo> slightly warm pre-summer weather
23:56:34 <pikhq> It's a conspiracy, Sgeo.
23:56:45 <alise> Sgeo_: I don't know Seth Gold
23:56:49 <cheater99> oklopol, i didn't get the one about plane/tail
23:56:51 <alise> How does Pandora have Seth Gold's real name?
23:56:52 <cheater99> explain it to me
23:57:17 <Sgeo_> They have my FB picture
23:57:25 <Rugxulo> who, Pandora?
23:57:31 <oklopol> cheater99: i don't get it either
23:57:37 <Sgeo_> I don't remember signing onto FB from my normal Pandora account
23:57:41 <Sgeo_> I might have signed in once
23:57:43 <cheater99> oklopol, ok
23:57:44 <oklopol> it was just such an absurd reference
23:57:44 <Rugxulo> I think Facebook lets you share some info with other domains now
23:57:54 <Sgeo_> It's like it tracked the fact that I signed on from normal, and FB, from the same computer
23:57:57 <Rugxulo> probably got lost amongst all their privacy changes
23:57:58 <cheater99> Sgeo_, WELCOME TO THE MATRIX
23:57:58 <Sgeo_> And now has connected them
23:57:59 <oklopol> no idea what he was going for
23:58:06 <oklopol> but funny
23:58:20 <Rugxulo> Sgeo, don't worry about it until it bites you (which is probably never)
23:58:34 <cheater99> ok
23:58:37 <cheater99> dirty harry 3 is on
23:58:53 <Rugxulo> do you feel lucky, punk?
23:59:00 <cheater99> do you?
23:59:08 <Sgeo_> alise, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGAkpRncNbQ
23:59:13 * Rugxulo counts the shots ... nope, not lucky enough
23:59:21 <cheater99> ok, time for some more gvim-time
23:59:26 <cheater99> it's very much like sexytime
23:59:28 <cheater99> but it's vim time
23:59:39 <cheater99> and i don't know why i typed the 'g' there, gvim needs to get out of my head
23:59:58 <Rugxulo> because everything must be graphical or OOP (or preferably both), you will be assimilated!
