00:06:23 <zzo38> I am making modifications to ngIRCd program, I should call it a name a bit difference, what should I call it?
00:06:27 <zzo38> It is already called ngIRCd, I want this one called a bit different, I will release the codes after I implement "ChannelTypes" option (currently it is hard-coded, and that is no good), and maybe "SummonType" and "SummonTimer", and SUMMON CTHULHU command, and possibly other fixes, and a document explaining the new features
00:06:31 <zzo38> I just use it because it is work on Cygwin and on Linux, and it is pure C codes not too many features that I don't need, and that I can modify the C codes to change some things
00:06:53 <pineapple> ngircd ?
00:07:26 <zzo38> I use ngIRCd on my own computer. (And you can see the changes, there, too.)

00:11:20 <alise> oerjan: how should titForTwoTats be written? :/
00:11:23 <alise> would be kinda complicated
00:11:28 <alise> since we have to store state in a way

00:13:47 <alise> yes
00:13:56 <alise> if the other player defects, T42T (tit for two tats) still cooperates
00:14:00 <alise> but if the other player then defects again
00:14:03 <alise> making it twice in a row

00:21:19 <alise> as a lambda expression; you get a list of Actions and return a list of Actions; Action = C | D
00:21:30 <alise> you can use recursion with fix, that is permissable
00:21:42 <alise> always cooperates: fix (\r -> C:r)

00:22:04 <zzo38> Have you played a game "Elemental Solitaire"? It has four elements (the four suits of the cards), but I want to figure out a way to make it work with five elements, do you know?

00:22:25 <coppro> nope, sorry
00:23:01 <coppro> that seems dumb

00:24:45 <AnMaster> <zzo38> It is already called ngIRCd, I want this one called a bit different, I will release the codes after I implement "ChannelTypes" option (currently it is hard-coded, and that is no good), and maybe "SummonType" and "SummonTimer", and SUMMON CTHULHU command, and possibly other fixes, and a document explaining the new features <-- what do you mean channel types?
00:24:52 <AnMaster> to me there is only one tyle
00:24:54 <alise> AnMaster: # + & etc
00:24:54 <AnMaster> type*
00:24:58 <AnMaster> alise, well okay
00:25:06 <AnMaster> but only ircnet uses it basically
00:25:07 <alise> zzo38 uses only + channels, modeless
00:25:10 <zzo38> Yes, # + & and so on. (ngIRCd does not support ! type channels)
00:25:28 <coppro> does anything?
00:25:46 <AnMaster> zzo38, so, why is it being hard coded an issue? isn't the logic for in which ways they differ going to have to be hard coded anyway
00:25:58 <AnMaster> zzo38, either that or loading dynamically linked modules
00:25:58 <alise> someone register jackdawslovemybigsphinxofquartz.org
00:26:00 <zzo38> No, I mean which channel types are available to be used.
00:26:01 <alise> and have one page
00:26:02 <alise> saying
00:26:03 <AnMaster> or *shudder* a scripting language
00:26:07 <alise> "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."
00:26:08 <alise> and vice versa
00:26:20 <AnMaster> zzo38, ah
00:26:35 <AnMaster> alise, do it yourself
00:26:40 <zzo38> So, if you set ChannelTypes=#&+ then all three channel types are available, which would be the default.
00:26:47 <alise> AnMaster: no
00:27:06 <zzo38> (When ! type channels are supported, the default will be #&!+ instead)
00:29:33 <coppro> on an unrelated note, holy shit I just won a game of Aces Up

00:50:16 <alise> AnMaster: they exist.
00:50:17 <AnMaster> alas that doesn't exist afaik
00:50:23 <AnMaster> alise, what? wow?
00:50:25 <alise> they have existed for a long time
00:50:28 <alise> both by ibm, and unicomp
00:50:41 <alise> apparently they're not quite as good as real trackpoints, but meh

00:51:11 <alise> and a bad trackball
00:51:24 <AnMaster> alise, I want a good trackpoint though
00:51:29 <AnMaster> same as in modern thinkpads

00:54:26 <alise> just buy a lisp machine
00:54:33 <alise> $600 or so for a vintage model (but still unused)
00:54:34 <AnMaster> alise, but trackpoint?
00:54:36 <alise> up to like $1200 iirc

04:28:19 <zzo38> Do you know now how I could make Elemental solitaire with five elements, somehow?
04:28:24 <zzo38> Do you have any ideas?
04:30:09 <Sgeo_> What does Elemental Solitaire with four elements look like?
04:32:33 <augur> anyone have a passing interest in logic?
04:32:38 <augur> and proof systems
04:32:50 <zzo38> The elements are the four suits of cards. There is a 4x4 grid with the corners cut off, there is 12 piles 4 card each, and 4 spares.
04:33:20 * Sgeo_ has a bit of a headache due to dealing with his step-mother :(
04:33:41 <zzo38> There is rules about geometry, are "blocks" (2x2 area of 4 piles), "crosses" (one card on each point of the cross, and inside is the center area), "extremities"
04:34:02 <zzo38> And then you win once all cards are removed according to blocks of 4 cards all different suit.
04:37:43 <zzo38> I thought of another idea in ngIRCd, the configuration for each remote server should also have a "ChannelTypes" option, to set which channel types are allowed to be forwarded/checked on another server (for example, irc.barton.de supports #&+ but irc.farlight.eu supports # only) (& type should never be forwarded, so the default should be #+ (or #!+ if ! type is implemented))

06:12:39 <myndzi> servers in the same network shouldn't operate with different option sets anyway

06:13:25 <myndzi> modeless
06:13:34 <myndzi> +chans are a modeless global channel

06:14:41 <Sgeo_> Anarchy!
06:14:50 <myndzi> more like get flooded and can't protect yourself
06:15:00 <myndzi> modeless means no +n, too
06:21:04 <myndzi> hmm wtf
06:21:12 <myndzi> whoops, wrong channel, you don't care about my tetris!
06:22:45 <Sgeo_> If it's turing-complete, we do
06:24:56 <coppro> sadly, Sgeo_'s probably right
06:25:26 <coppro> we'd care about a turing-complete pencil
06:28:06 <Sgeo_> What's the most powerful a language that only had one way to accomplish any task could be?
06:28:42 <coppro> depends on what your definition of "one way to accomplish any task" is
06:31:46 <coppro> what about Brainfuck?
06:32:49 <coppro> or Rule 110?
06:37:03 <zzo38> myndzi: Actually, modeless means the mode is fixed at +nt
06:38:07 <zzo38> I don't know if a language with only one way to accomplish a task could be turing-complete
06:39:29 <Sgeo_> zzo38, it wouldn't be
06:40:58 <zzo38> It probably cannot possibly be turing-complete!
06:41:13 <coppro> if you define "only one way to accomplish a task" as being something like "exactly one input per output", then it cannot possibly be turing-complete
06:41:17 <zzo38> Unless you change the question somewhat, then perhaps there might be some way
06:43:18 <zzo38> And the reason the servers in the same network do not all support the same channel types is because irc.farlight.eu is running a old version of ngIRCd (I checked)

12:33:33 <ais523> and has a rightclick too
12:33:41 <ais523> it's just, the trackpad doesn't have a middle button
12:33:43 <ais523> and isn't multi-touch
12:33:51 <ais523> so I have to control-click, or both-click, instead
12:34:11 <ais523> both-clicking's really hard, and for some reason I keep using both left mouse buttons (the one on the trackpad and the one below) rather than control-clicking

12:59:59 <oerjan> they've all been invented already. probably. well, the simple ones.
13:00:19 * oerjan was reading about medial magmas/groupoids recently
13:01:13 <oerjan> one operator (call it *), fundamental equation: (a*b)*(c*d) = (a*c)*(b*d)
13:02:43 <ais523> hmm, post on rgrn
13:02:45 <oerjan> surprisingly, there are interesting consequences. if * is surjective, then it's essentially a kind of linear function, and all linear functions of two variables have this property.
13:02:49 <ais523> umm, ali
13:03:00 <ais523> two newsgroups which probably have more of an overlap than they ought to
13:03:11 <ais523> but a post on rgrn is not surprising, and a post on ali is
13:03:19 <ais523> it was asking about how to implement the factory and singleton patterns in INTERCAL
13:03:24 <oerjan> (the former is a very deep theorem, i'd have had to read the whole book to understand it, so i didn't.)
13:03:47 <Deewiant> ais523: What kind of an overlap?
13:04:10 <ais523> Deewiant: well, anything other than the null set, given that by rights a.l.i's readership /should/ be the null set
13:04:26 <oerjan> ais523: rec.games.something?
13:04:35 <ais523> rec.games.roguelike.nethack
13:04:40 <oerjan> ah
13:05:03 <Deewiant> Are you sure the overlap /isn't/ the null set?
13:05:22 <oerjan> Deewiant: ais523 is on both, obviously...
13:05:47 <Deewiant> Ah, I was thinking of only posts as overlaps
13:05:52 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined.
13:05:59 <ais523> and the number of NetHack players who are aware of INTERCAL is actually large enough that I don't know the number offhand
13:06:05 <ais523> although I'm not sure how many of them also use Usenet
13:06:11 <ais523> Deewiant: I've posted to both
13:06:17 <Deewiant> But the same thing?
13:06:27 <ais523> no, I can't think of a way to crosspost that wouldn't be trolling
13:06:34 <ais523> unless and until I manage to port NetHack to INTERCAL
13:06:39 <Deewiant> Right. That's the kind of overlap I was thinking of
13:06:40 <ais523> which likely won't happen for years
13:06:42 <jamesstanley> ais523: or vice versa
13:06:54 <ais523> jamesstanley: I'm not entirely sure if the vice versa makes sense
13:06:55 <Deewiant> Or that first came to mind given newsgroup overlap
13:07:03 <jamesstanley> implementing intercal in nethack? of course it does
13:07:03 <ais523> NetHack is not Dwarf Fortress, after all
13:07:16 <ais523> I don't think NetHack is TC, or even usable for programming

15:35:41 <CakeProphet> node-data { inner-node-data ; inner-node-data}
15:36:06 <CakeProphet> { creates a new child node at the current node... ; creates a new sibling
15:36:41 <CakeProphet> {1;2;3;4;5;6} to represent a simple list 4{ 2; 4 {1;2;3}} for trees
15:36:58 <CakeProphet> + {1;2;!}
15:37:05 <CakeProphet> is a program expression
15:37:21 <CakeProphet> ...I might change ; to , ...no need to type shift all the time
15:37:50 <CakeProphet> and ( can just be ) actually just use spaces instead of , HOLY SHIT ITS TREE-LISP
15:38:29 <uorygl> Hey, you're using a keyboard layout in which you need to press shift to type ;.
15:38:48 <CakeProphet> ...oh, wait, no I'm not.
15:39:06 <CakeProphet> dunno why I thought that.
15:39:47 <CakeProphet> actually spaces don't sit well with me for this syntax... since each branch node can have its own atom as well as a child list.
15:40:03 <CakeProphet> so whitespace independence would be nice to allow any kind of structuring.
15:41:43 <CakeProphet> +(1,-(2,3,!),!)
15:41:50 <CakeProphet> might have some sugar for that !
15:43:05 <CakeProphet> use a different bracket style for implicit !age

16:32:57 <uorygl> The vowels aren't too bad.
16:33:33 <uorygl> Hm, Czech's consonants look pretty manageable.
16:34:08 <uorygl> Icelandic's consonants look only somewhat manageable.
16:34:18 <Deewiant> How's that
16:35:17 <uorygl> Well, it has a bunch of consonants that I can't even name.
16:35:21 <uorygl> Icelandic, I mean.
16:35:49 <uorygl> Though, actually, I guess that little ring thingy just means "voiceless".

16:43:05 <Deewiant> :-D
16:43:11 <Deewiant> Excellent
16:44:06 <uorygl> That's because U+037C is GREEK SMALL DOTTED LUNATE SIGMA SYMBOL.
16:44:25 <fizzie> That was just a typo.
16:44:33 <fizzie> U+047C is what I meant to write.
16:44:46 <uorygl> Mm.
16:45:05 <uorygl> Well, that sure looks like an omega with a titlo.
16:46:00 <uorygl> But indeed.
16:46:41 <fizzie> At least in my font Ѽ is rendered as a rather silly wide omegay thing, and then two other diacritics (combining cyrillic palatalization, combining cyrillirc psili pneumata; I have no idea what they're for) instead of the ҃ titlo one.
16:47:04 <fizzie> "cyrillirc".
16:47:31 <uorygl> Hm, it seems that in all my fonts as well as fileformat.info, it is displayed as an omega with a titlo.

16:48:38 <fizzie> http://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0400.pdf has it close to what I see in gucharmap.
16:48:54 <fizzie> (It also has the same note.)
16:49:12 <uorygl> = Cyrillic "beautiful omega". * despite its name, this character does not have a titlo, nor is it composed of an omega plus a diacritic. -> A64C Ꙍ cyrillic capital letter broad omega
16:54:35 <AnMaster> I just realised that the OS I use on my RCX is in many respects way more advanced than DOS. For example it does multiple threads (cooperative multitasking due to preemptive (as it used to be) having a rather annoyingly large overhead)

17:24:42 <AnMaster> uorygl, "white"? I didn't know unicode had colour info...
17:24:53 <AnMaster> it doesn't make sense for it to have that
17:25:06 <uorygl> Well, I imagine it's "white" in the sense of "the same color as the background".
17:25:26 <AnMaster> uorygl, so, it is a strange name for a space? ;P
17:25:39 <uorygl> No, it's outlined. :)

17:28:44 <uorygl> Let's see, I know enough Finnish to sort of ask a simple question.
17:30:17 <uorygl> fizzie, olet Suomen?
17:30:22 <uorygl> I'm sure that was close enough. :P
17:30:30 <Deewiant> "You're Finland's?"
17:30:45 <uorygl> Maybe it wasn't close enough. :P
17:31:17 <uorygl> My intended meaning was "Are you Finnish?"
17:31:37 <uorygl> (Though I would be quite surprised if e turned out not to be.)
17:31:46 <Deewiant> Also, lacks the interrogative suffix on the "olet" to be completely correct for even that ;-P
17:32:02 <uorygl> Interrogative suffix? Huh.
17:32:06 <Deewiant> But, in colloquial speech it's often dropped
17:32:29 <fizzie> Yes, it should be "oletko" to make it a question; with just "olet" it's a statement: "you are Finnish".
17:32:42 <Deewiant> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_grammar#Interrogatives_.28questions.29
17:32:44 <uorygl> A statement with a question mark at the end. :)
17:32:58 <uorygl> And apparently "Suomen" wasn't quite the right word either.
17:33:09 <Deewiant> It's "Suomalainen"
17:33:30 <fizzie> Isn't it "suomalainen"? I don't think we capitalize it when it's a nationality or a language.
17:33:30 <AnMaster> isn't soumi = finland?
17:33:45 <Deewiant> Right, we don't.
17:33:55 <Deewiant> AnMaster: Modulo letter order, yes.
17:34:00 <AnMaster> Deewiant, ah
17:34:28 <uorygl> Suomalainen. I should probably make note of that.
17:35:25 <Deewiant> x-lainen (/x-läinen) ~= from x
17:35:36 <fizzie> The non-capitalization exception is something I don't much like.
17:35:46 <Deewiant> Ditto
17:36:20 <uorygl> I like not capitalizing stuff!
17:36:36 <uorygl> But, eh.
17:36:59 <fizzie> It's just that we capitalize countries (like "Suomi") but not languages (which would be "suomi").
17:37:07 * uorygl nods.
17:37:28 <fizzie> There's also the verb "suomia": to whip, lash, (figuratively) scold.
17:37:53 <fizzie> (Of which "suomi" would be the third-person singular past tense case.
17:38:01 <Deewiant> Cognate to "suomustaa"?
17:38:20 <uorygl> What's the Finnish word for "whiplash"? :P
17:38:38 <Deewiant> For the literal lash of a whip, piiskanisku
17:38:58 <fizzie> Deewiant: Perhaps. fi.wiktionary says "(murteellinen?) suomustaa; etymologinen perusta edelliselle??" but those multiple question marks make me a bit unsure.
17:39:06 <Deewiant> heh
17:39:24 <uorygl> Rakastan sinua.
17:39:40 <uorygl> Unfortunately, I can't really tell which word is which in that sentence.

17:40:43 <uorygl> I wonder why it does that. :P

17:42:42 * uorygl thinks.
17:42:50 * uorygl looks up the Finnish word for "thinks".
17:43:02 <Deewiant> uorygl: "Rakastaa" is atelic
17:43:19 <Deewiant> As is "to love", I suppose
17:43:30 <uorygl> That doesn't have anything to do with philately, does it.
17:43:40 <AnMaster> ais523, wtf at that recent message on a.l.i
17:43:44 <Deewiant> Not to my knowledge
17:44:18 <uorygl> "I loved you in a day." "I loved you for a day."
17:44:27 <ais523> did you see my reply?
17:44:28 <uorygl> I guess so.

17:44:35 <AnMaster> ais523, yes and yes
17:44:50 <AnMaster> ais523, even more wtf from those

17:47:36 <ais523> Deewiant: alt.lang.intercal
17:47:42 <Deewiant> ais523: The comma, I meant
17:47:44 <AnMaster> well, I'm having problems parsing "[...]; those who have tried to imply the way I think from the way I write code, possibly a null set, would know that I consider multithreading the answer to more or less every problem INTERCAL offers"
17:47:55 <ais523> AnMaster: I can parse that just fine
17:47:59 <Deewiant> As can I
17:48:01 <AnMaster> hm
17:48:35 <Deewiant> Although that "possibly a null set" is a bit confusingly placed. But I'm not sure if there's a better place.
17:48:56 <ais523> meh, I was thinking INTERCAL, so long as it's theoretically grammatically correct it's fine
17:48:56 <AnMaster> yes perhaps
17:49:12 <AnMaster> Deewiant, I presume he means that "those who have tried to imply" is a null set
17:49:17 <uorygl> AnMaster: yeah, that was difficult to parse.
17:49:18 <Deewiant> Yep
17:49:25 <AnMaster> imply what?
17:49:28 <uorygl> I suspect that by "imply" he means "infer".
17:49:33 <Deewiant> Yep
17:49:44 <AnMaster> uorygl, ah, okay that makes a quite a lot more sense
17:49:47 <ais523> meh, it's more fun for me to attribute other people to attribute motives to me
17:50:05 <uorygl> I find it strange that people get "imply" and "infer" mixed up. Don't they mean totally different things?
17:50:17 <Deewiant> Not totally, but fairly
17:50:25 <AnMaster> uorygl, both are verbs.
17:50:27 <AnMaster> ;P
17:50:31 <AnMaster> but yeah quite different afaik
17:50:37 <uorygl> Implying is saying something indirectly, or having something as a conclusion. Inferring is coming to a conclusion.
17:50:52 <uorygl> Yeah, I guess they're both I5 verbs. :)
17:51:28 <AnMaster> uorygl, I5?
17:51:38 <AnMaster> oh letter count
17:51:39 <ais523> start with I and have 5 letters
17:51:40 <AnMaster> hm
17:51:44 <uorygl> What he said.
17:52:17 <AnMaster> anyway, I kind of can't see how you could mix up their meaning
17:52:49 <ais523> it's almost an opposite meaning
17:52:51 <AnMaster> ais523, "[...] and multiple COME FROM having too much [state]"?
17:53:15 <ais523> AnMaster: it's an INTERCAL thing
17:53:18 <AnMaster> ais523, how do you mean too much state?
17:53:39 <ais523> AnMaster: no shared state
17:53:41 <ais523> or very little
17:53:48 <ais523> all shared state is global, you can't share pairwise
17:54:04 <AnMaster> ais523, hm, creating statements on demand, does that imply JITing?
17:54:10 <uorygl> Wait, why does "ajatella" have thirteen synonyms?
17:54:16 <AnMaster> err s/on demand/at runtime/
17:54:20 <AnMaster> which is what it seems like
17:54:33 <ais523> AnMaster: no, think of it more like thunks
17:54:39 <AnMaster> uorygl, what does it mean?
17:54:49 <uorygl> "To think".
17:55:04 <Deewiant> uorygl: "think" has fourteen
17:55:09 <uorygl> Well, I guess it's transitive.
17:55:11 <Deewiant> According to Wiktionary, anyways
17:55:28 <AnMaster> ais523, um? was ages ago I heard about "thunks" last, and it was something related to windows 3.1 iirc
17:55:29 <uorygl> I count thirteen, not counting "ajatella" itself.
17:55:36 <AnMaster> so I have no clue what you meant there
17:55:51 <ais523> AnMaster: closures with no params
17:55:53 <Deewiant> And at least most of the Finnish ones are just different forms of each other
17:56:02 <AnMaster> ah
17:56:17 <Deewiant> ajatella/aatella, fundeerata/funtsata/funtsia, pohtia/pohdiskella, pähkiä/pähkäillä, tuumailla/tuumata/tuumia/tuumiskella
17:56:51 <uorygl> Huh. So that makes more like five.
17:56:55 <Deewiant> That list is missing "puntaroida"
17:57:30 <Deewiant> But they don't include "harkita" either so maybe that's intentional
17:57:43 <uorygl> Nah, add them. :)
17:58:11 <Deewiant> Nah, it's probably intentional
17:58:47 <Deewiant> Although "pähkäillä" probably shouldn't be there either if that's the case... but whatever
17:58:53 <AnMaster> ais523, btw you should write a C->INTERCAL compiler
17:59:08 <uorygl> What do you think the reason is?
17:59:20 <AnMaster> ais523, after you finish feather and gcc-bf that is ;P
18:00:21 <Deewiant> uorygl: Well, it's sort of "think" versus "consider"
18:01:04 <Deewiant> ("consider" as in "mull over", can't think of a better synonym)
18:02:55 <uorygl> Drat, Wiktionary doesn't list the declension of "aihe".
18:04:37 <Deewiant> This type, I think: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Finnish_declension_types/hame
18:05:38 <uorygl> So the partitive singular is "aihetta"?
18:05:45 <Deewiant> Yep
18:08:17 * uorygl ajattelee aihetta.
18:09:49 <Deewiant> I think "ajatella" is more "think of" than "think about", actually
18:09:53 <Deewiant> But I'm not sure
18:09:54 <uorygl> Oh?
18:10:10 <Deewiant> Or, well, I'm pretty sure it's /more/ that but it might still be both
18:10:54 * uorygl ajattelee seuraavaa aihetta?
18:13:13 <Deewiant> Bah, I dunno
18:13:19 <Deewiant> I'm all confused now
18:13:48 <Deewiant> Maybe it's just that I don't like using "ajatella" with "aihe" for some reason
18:15:05 <uorygl> Elämä on hyvä.
18:16:44 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
18:17:16 <Deewiant> Not sure if that's wrong or if it just sounds wrong :-P
18:17:46 <uorygl> "Elämä on hyvä" sounds wrong, too?
18:18:00 <Deewiant> It sounds wrong but it could just be because it's the obvious anglicism
18:18:10 <uorygl> Elämä ön hyvä. :P
18:18:16 <Deewiant> It's not something anybody would ever say
18:18:21 * uorygl nods.
18:18:33 <uorygl> Except for beginning speakers of Finnish, I guess!
18:18:45 <Deewiant> That's not in my definition of "anybody"
18:18:55 <Phantom_Hoover> I have been asked to build a robot with Mindstorms for "work" "experience".

18:30:29 <uorygl> Well, from what little I've learned so far of Finnish, I'm struck by how similar it is to English.
18:32:24 <uorygl> It has more or less the same parts of speech, and the words go in more or less the same order.
18:32:36 <Deewiant> The word order is more or less arbitrary
18:33:06 <uorygl> That too. :)
18:34:26 <Deewiant> Not really the case in English :-P

18:38:30 <uorygl> But as far as grammar goes, all three seem pretty similar.

19:58:27 <Deewiant> Java
19:58:31 <Deewiant> Verbosity
19:58:34 <Deewiant> HAET
19:58:35 <Phantom_Hoover> What does it do?
19:58:45 <Deewiant> It's the equivalent of 'map =' in Haskell
19:58:49 <Phantom_Hoover> You can be verbose in everything.
19:58:56 <Phantom_Hoover> But that seems extreme.
19:59:19 <Deewiant> That's a method definition minus a body and closing }
19:59:45 <augur> Deewiant: what's 'map =' do?
19:59:59 <Deewiant> It's a function definition minus a body
20:00:21 <augur> what
20:00:29 <augur> oh i see
20:00:39 <augur> map = ...
20:01:13 <fizzie> That was Hadoop, not Java; but Java things in general do seem to end up looking like that, it's true.
20:01:57 <Deewiant> Hadoop is Java
20:02:08 <fizzie> Well, yes, but Java is not Hadoop.
20:02:33 <fizzie> You can't just pick the interface of a single... I guess they call it a "framework", and say all Java's like that.
20:02:46 <Deewiant> Fortunately, I didn't
20:03:05 <Deewiant> But Java hate was being coaxed so I somewhat-delivered
20:06:21 <fizzie> It is reasonably representative of Java, I guess. The officially-part-of-the-language library isn't much less verbosity-demanding.

20:41:24 <oerjan> (the latter being a sound existing _only_ in czech)
20:42:38 <Deewiant> "Used as vowels"?
20:43:03 <oerjan> (it was listed (may still be) in guinness book of records as the world's rarest sound.
20:43:06 <oerjan> )
20:43:40 <oerjan> (although i've learned the swedish sje-sound is also only in one language, there might be others for what i know)
20:44:14 <oerjan> (the swedish sje-sound is much simpler to pronounce though, imo)
20:44:33 <oerjan> Deewiant: cz:vlk = en:wolf, for example
20:45:06 <Deewiant> Sure, there are vowelless words, but how does that make those "used as vowels"?
20:45:26 <uorygl> Well, used as syllable nuclei.
20:45:33 <oerjan> there are some famous tongue-twisters which my non-unicode clean irc setup cannot manage
20:45:45 <Deewiant> Right
20:45:59 <Deewiant> Japanese has an n-syllable which I find annoying for no good reason
20:47:05 <Deewiant> But anyway, I don't find that makes them less manageable
20:47:40 <oerjan> anyway, there's _still_ r-hacek >:)
20:48:49 <Deewiant> Yeah, raised alveolar non-sonorant trill
20:49:30 -!- kar8nga has joined.
20:49:47 <Deewiant> I wonder what it means by having the tongue raised when it's alveolar anyway
20:50:20 <oerjan> i think it may be that it's not made with just the tip of the tongue, iirc
