17:26:51 <pikhq> cheater99: MEGS
17:28:11 <AnMaster> <pikhq> GHC without shared libraries produces some quite amazing binary sizes. <-- worse than GCC?
17:28:20 <cheater99> pikhq: i expected 100s of megs
17:28:23 <AnMaster> err
17:28:25 <AnMaster> G++
17:28:28 <AnMaster> not GCC
17:28:31 <AnMaster> -_-
17:28:55 <pikhq> AnMaster: Well, the thing is, static linking is the default in GHC.
17:29:15 <oerjan> what's the size of "main = return ()" ? :D
17:30:16 <AnMaster> pikhq, ouch
17:30:26 <pikhq> oerjan: 468K.
17:30:33 <AnMaster> yeargh
17:30:38 <AnMaster> pikhq, before strip or after?
17:30:41 <oerjan> they only recently got dynamic linking working in any implementations at all, iirc
17:30:45 <pikhq> AnMaster: After.
17:30:50 <pikhq> oerjan: 12K with dynamic linking.
17:30:55 <AnMaster> pikhq, _ouch_
17:30:58 <pikhq> Which appears to be the minimum GHC binary size.
17:31:01 <AnMaster> pikhq, what was size before strip?
17:31:15 <pikhq> AnMaster: 676K.
17:31:20 <AnMaster> heh
17:31:32 <pikhq> The thing is, there's a massive chunk of stuff in there.
17:31:43 <AnMaster> pikhq, is all that really needed?
17:31:45 <pikhq> As it's statically linking the entire runtime in there.
17:31:58 <pikhq> The garbage collector probably is.
17:32:21 <pikhq> The thread implementation is probably not.
17:32:24 <AnMaster> <pikhq> As it's statically linking the entire runtime in there. <-- doesn't linking against *.a just pull the files you actually need?
17:32:45 <pikhq> Yes, but it pulls in the entire contents of those files.
17:32:50 <Deewiant> Run your ./donothing +RTS --help and see what you've got
17:33:08 <pikhq> Massive chunk of stuff.
17:33:09 <pikhq> :)
17:33:10 <AnMaster> pikhq, split it in more files then
17:33:39 <pikhq> AnMaster: GHC isn't a magic-worker.
17:33:53 <pikhq> Also, most of it's going to be pulled in anyways.
17:33:55 <Deewiant> It could, in theory, notice that your program doesn't use the GC at all
17:34:07 <pikhq> Because you can pass arguments to the RTS...
17:34:14 <Deewiant> But since only trivial hello-world or do-nothing level programs do that, there's no point
17:34:39 <pikhq> Letting you configure a lot of stuff with the GC, the threading library, etc.
17:35:10 <oerjan> they're apparently going to turn off +RTS handling by default iirc, it's a security hole
17:35:17 <pikhq> Hmm.
17:35:39 <oerjan> it allows specifying some output files iirc
17:36:13 <pikhq> For GC stat logging.
17:36:46 <Deewiant> std::cout << "Hi\n"; is 496K with g++ and a statically linked libstdc++
17:37:00 <Deewiant> GHC isn't that amazing IMO :-P
17:38:06 <pikhq> Yeah, int main(){} statically linked is 580K.
17:38:18 <pikhq> Glibc is designed by retards apparently.
17:38:59 <oerjan> it's designed by a guy who violently spits on anyone suggesting they should try to save memory, iirc
17:39:19 <pikhq> Freaking Ulrich Drepper.
17:39:37 <oerjan> (aka being useful for embedded devices)
17:42:20 <pikhq> Yeah, glibc is pretty feature-complete, but it comes at the expense of being usable on anything with less than, oh, 64M of RAM.
17:55:07 <Deewiant> pikhq: How'd you manage that? My int main(){} was 6.3K (smaller than the dynamically linked one)
17:55:20 <pikhq> Deewiant: ... Glibc?
17:55:36 <AnMaster> with uclibc it was smaller for me, with glibc it was larger
17:56:14 <Deewiant> /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.5.0/../../../../lib/libstdc++.a
17:56:32 <Deewiant> I don't have any other libc's here AFAIK :-P
17:56:40 <pikhq> That's not even libc.
17:56:53 <pikhq> int main(){}, build with gcc -static.
17:56:54 <pikhq> Go.
17:57:16 <Deewiant> Oh, there's a -static
17:57:43 <Deewiant> I googled it and found a reference to a non-working -static-libgcc and a recommendation to hide libstdc++.so
17:57:57 <AnMaster> Deewiant, C++ != C
17:57:57 <Deewiant> Where "it" is static linking with g++
17:58:01 <Deewiant> I know
17:58:08 <Deewiant> I was talking about C++ from the start :-P
17:59:46 <Deewiant> I felt the comparison was more meaningful that way since GHC also dynamically links libc
18:00:08 <pikhq> Ah.
18:11:26 <pikhq> ../../../gcc-4.5.0/libgcc/config/libbid/bid_decimal_globals.c:47:18: fatal error: fenv.h: No such file or directory

19:21:52 <pikhq> Unlike urxvt, which claims to and fails.
19:21:55 <pikhq> HOORAY
19:21:56 <coppro> an actual terminal?
19:21:58 <pikhq>
19:22:03 <pikhq> coppro: Terminal emulator
19:22:10 <coppro> konsole works for me
19:22:16 <oerjan> aka terminator. wait...
19:22:34 <pikhq> How does it handle bidirectional text?
19:22:36 <alise> 16:44:29 <Gregor-W> Honestly that quote just makes me wonder where these people live where the women sleep in lavish four-poster beds and the men sleep curled up in the fetal position in the corner of a concrete box.
19:22:40 <alise> :D
19:22:44 <pikhq> oerjan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminator_(terminal_emulator)
19:23:01 <coppro> pikhq: Oh... that I have no clue of
19:23:04 <alise> i used terminator for a while
19:23:09 <coppro> Can you give me a sample so that I can test it?
19:23:38 <oerjan> O KAY
19:24:01 <pikhq> العربية
19:26:10 <pikhq> That should render as the same glyphs as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Arabic_albayancalligraphy.svg
19:27:20 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: leaving).
19:28:50 <pikhq> ا ل ع ر ب ي ة
19:29:06 <pikhq> And there's the glyphs by themselves, so you can see if it's doing the complex layout correctly, as well.
19:36:18 <alise> pikhq: Terminator also does Unicode spectacularly, BTW.
19:36:42 <alise> pikhq: ... As does rio...
19:37:06 <pikhq> alise: Mmm.
19:37:19 <pikhq> Not enough things do.
19:39:21 * pikhq shall check out terminator
19:40:11 <oklopol> SimonRC: was it you who was obsessed with lucid dreaming at some point, or was it pikhq
19:40:16 <oklopol> (or perhaps no one?)
19:41:12 <oklopol> last night i had one where i created a few people and asked them to play me a song, to see how good a song my brain could come up with on the fly
19:41:56 <pikhq> Hmm. So far I see two major failings in Terminator.
19:41:57 <oklopol> i remember it was awesome, but the actual details i remember are really weird and stupid :P
19:42:00 <pikhq> First, it doesn't handle IMEs.
19:42:09 <pikhq> Second, it doesn't handle bidirectional text.
19:42:41 <pikhq> So, screw that.
19:42:51 <pikhq> mlterm seems to be rendering underscores oddly.
19:43:14 <pikhq> Basically, it isn't aware of where they get rendered, so it ends up not actually clearing them from the screen.
19:44:20 <pikhq> Is it too much to ask for a terminal without bugs?
19:45:53 <pikhq> Okay, okay.
19:46:02 <pikhq> Set the line spacing to 1 and it magically works.
19:52:42 <alise> pikhq: Third, Terminator is Java.
19:52:54 <alise> <pikhq> Set the line spacing to 1 and it magically works. <-- OTOH, you have to deal with line spacing 1.
19:53:08 <pikhq> 1 pixel.
19:53:26 <pikhq> Said pixel being where the underscore goes.
19:55:35 <alise> So, am I right in thinking that I could get out of an EU country's mandatory military service by not being a proper resident but only a European Citizen?
19:56:17 <pikhq> Yes.
19:56:32 <pikhq> Actually, by not being a *citizen of the EU country in question*.
19:56:33 <Deewiant> Don't all military services require citizenship of the country anyway
19:56:39 <pikhq> Deewiant: No.
19:56:55 <AnMaster> the French have some foreign legion or such iirc?
19:56:57 <AnMaster> forgot the name for it
19:56:59 <pikhq> The US and French militaries, for instance, quite approve of foreign volunteers.
19:57:13 <pikhq> The French Foreign Legion comes with automatic French citizenship.
19:57:21 <AnMaster> pikhq, huh
19:57:27 <Deewiant> Hmm, I thought the US required it
19:57:32 <AnMaster> pikhq, so you drop your old citizenship?
19:57:35 <Deewiant> Should've remembered the French though
19:57:38 <pikhq> Deewiant: Fast track to citizenship.
19:57:45 <Deewiant> Well yeah
19:57:46 <pikhq> AnMaster: No, they allow dual citizenship.
19:57:50 <Deewiant> But that still counts as requiring it :-P
19:57:50 <alise> <pikhq> Yes.
19:57:50 <alise> <pikhq> Actually, by not being a *citizen of the EU country in question*.
19:57:51 <alise> Riht.
19:57:53 <alise> *Right.
19:57:56 <alise> Then Finland is on the cards again.
19:57:58 <pikhq> Deewiant: No, they don't require it.
19:58:04 <alise> (I refuse to be drafted.)
19:58:07 <AnMaster> pikhq, does your host country do that though=
19:58:07 <pikhq> However, by being in the military, citizenship is very easy.
19:58:10 <AnMaster> s/=/?/
19:58:16 <Deewiant> alise: You could've just said Finland instead of "an EU country" although I guessed that one anyway ;-P
19:58:18 <pikhq> AnMaster: Most nations allow it.
19:58:24 <alise> Deewiant: Did I need to say Finland? :)
19:58:35 <AnMaster> pikhq, hm
19:58:55 <Deewiant> alise: In Finland, you can also do the civil service even if you do get drafted, if you just don't want to do military stuff
19:59:01 <alise> Deewiant: Oh, so that's why you're a hideously intelligent sociopath: they teach you their secrets in the military, then make you blow people up with them. Well, okay, so I invented the sociopath thing myself.
19:59:08 <alise> Deewiant: Yeah, but I also don't want to do the civil service :P
19:59:12 <pikhq> alise: Also, fun fact: all nations with mandatory military service in Europe do not have those forced ever be deployed.
19:59:25 <pikhq> It'd be political suicide, obviously.
19:59:38 <Deewiant> alise: You can also go to jail to spend the minimum amount of time ;-P
19:59:41 <pikhq> They have, in effect, volunteer armies, yet force people to do random training for a year or two.
19:59:43 <alise> pikhq: In Finland you can serve a jail sentence instead.
19:59:45 <pikhq> Kinda retarded.
19:59:55 <alise> Which is just totally awesome!
20:00:01 <alise> But I think I'll just live with being a second-class citizen.
20:00:10 -!- ais523 has joined.
20:00:11 <alise> Actually, can't European citizens of age even vote in their resident country?
20:00:14 <alise> Hi ais523.
20:00:16 <pikhq> alise: Hardly even "second-class".
20:00:19 <pikhq> Yes, you can vote.
20:00:39 <ais523> hi alise
20:00:47 <pikhq> Pretty much the only thing that makes you second-class is a need to carry around your passport.
20:00:55 <AnMaster> pikhq, so if I moved to Denmark I could vote in both Denmark and in Sweden?
20:01:06 <pikhq> AnMaster: Yes.
20:01:09 <AnMaster> huh
20:01:23 <AnMaster> pikhq, do I get two votes to the EU parliament? ;)
20:01:27 <pikhq> No.
20:01:48 <alise> pikhq: Also, Mr. Immigration Expert, how do I renounce my British citizenship? And can I still be a European citizen?
20:02:00 <AnMaster> pikhq, what if I moved into a house placed right on top of the German/Danish border? Could I vote in 3 countries then?
20:02:25 <Deewiant> AnMaster: That house would be disambiguated :-P
20:02:32 <AnMaster> Deewiant, argh
20:02:40 <pikhq> alise: Varies from nation to nation.
20:03:05 <alise> AnMaster: What if the two countries had varying age of consent laws, and you fucked someone in the middle of the age bracket half on the border and half not?!
20:03:18 <pikhq> The typical process, though, involves going to the nearest embassy, declaring intent to renounce citizenship, and then relinquishing your passport.
20:03:19 <alise> I guess the half the vagina is on might matter.
20:03:29 <pikhq> They will probably also require proof that you have other citizenship.
20:03:32 <alise> pikhq: The passport thing might be an issue.
20:03:37 <alise> pikhq: So I can't just be an EU citizen?
20:03:48 <AnMaster> alise, awesome idea with that "right in the middle"
20:03:49 <pikhq> No, as the EU is not a sovereign nation.
20:04:03 <alise> pikhq: Dammit, why not?!
20:04:11 <AnMaster> alise, alas I don't know the answer
20:04:14 <alise> pikhq: I don't want to be British but I don't want to be Finnish either :P
20:04:19 <pikhq> Because Europeans go "ZOMG NEED NATIONS"
20:04:32 <alise> AnMaster: The answer is that the nations would decide who has sovereignity over the house, probably, and the borders would change accordingly.
20:04:42 <alise> AnMaster: Alternatively, you wouldn't be granted permission to build the house. This is the most likely scenario.
20:04:45 <pikhq> alise: If you got employed at Vatican City you could become Vatican.
20:04:45 <pikhq> :P
20:04:52 <AnMaster> alise, hm
20:04:58 <alise> pikhq: I don't need physical molestation to go with the emotional!
20:05:46 <pikhq> AnMaster: If they grant permission to build the house, they will sign a treaty to note who has jurisdiction over the building.
20:06:07 <pikhq> This is how it works with things like CERN, which are on national borders.
20:06:15 <pikhq> I doubt they'll sign a treaty for a *house*, so.
20:06:16 <AnMaster> pikhq, heh, aren't there any existing buildings that crosses any borders?
20:06:22 <pikhq> Several.
20:06:29 <pikhq> Governed by treaties.
20:06:31 <AnMaster> heh
20:06:46 <AnMaster> pikhq, even for small cottages on borders or such?
20:06:57 <pikhq> They draw borders around them.
20:07:04 <AnMaster> pikhq, heh
20:07:16 <pikhq> There's also a few border disputes because of things like that.
20:07:22 <AnMaster> pikhq, hah
20:07:27 <alise> draw a big trans-border house shaped like a penis
20:07:30 <alise> get borders changed
20:07:31 <alise> profit
20:07:42 <AnMaster> hah
20:07:52 <pikhq> National borders are *such* a bizarre thing.
20:08:17 <AnMaster> indeed
20:08:47 <AnMaster> alise, probably the border will end up with a rectangular hole for it
20:09:17 <alise> AnMaster: no, nobody would give up more than is strictly necessary!
20:09:25 <alise> also, geometric borders would be weird.

20:10:31 <alise> pikhq: So I could only renounce my British citizenship by becoming a Finnish citizen, then, and thus suffering the draft.
20:10:32 <pikhq> So, you need to gain other citizenship to lose British citizenship, full-stop.
20:10:36 <AnMaster> alise, there are several straight lines though
20:10:41 <alise> It's just paranoia tells me to get the fuck away from the British government in any way possible.
20:10:48 <fizzie> CERN has a border going right through their campus; I think the border still goes right through, but they also don't care about it much. Of course they have quite a lot of identity-checking on the campus gates, so...
20:11:05 <AnMaster> hah
20:11:13 <coppro> fizzie: It's also a Schengen border
20:11:38 <pikhq> fizzie: It's a Schengen border, *and* sovereignity is defined.
20:11:50 <pikhq> IIRC, all but one of the buildings is under French jurisdiction.
20:12:13 <coppro> alise: no, you could also become a stateless person (not recommended)
20:12:25 <AnMaster> coppro, what does that mean?
20:12:30 <pikhq> There's also an airport on the US/Canada border...
20:12:31 <alise> coppro: Just curious, why would that be unrecommended? :P
20:12:35 <alise> Lack of any rights?
20:12:35 <pikhq> This works very oddly.
20:12:39 <coppro> alise: mostly
20:12:43 <AnMaster> pikhq, ?
20:12:44 <coppro> AnMaster: no nationality
20:12:48 <alise> Could I be an EU citizen? I suppose not :-P
20:13:01 <AnMaster> alise, try Swedish citizen?
20:13:12 <pikhq> Past the security gates in an international airport is considered to be only under international law.
20:13:13 <AnMaster> alise, and this means you are moving abroad?
20:13:15 <alise> AnMaster: But I'd rather live in Finland. :P
20:13:25 <alise> There's interesting people in Finland. Sweden...
20:13:26 <AnMaster> pikhq, heh
20:13:34 <pikhq> As such: one side of the building is under US jusrisdiction, one is under Canada, and the middle is under NONE AT ALL.
20:13:37 <alise> pikhq: Is there an international age of consent?
20:13:52 <alise> If not: Pedobear tiem
20:13:56 <pikhq> alise: No.
20:14:01 <alise> "You wanna go on a plane, little girl?"
20:14:07 <alise> "I got a biiiig loooong aeroplane..."
20:14:17 <pikhq> alise: The *plane* is under the jurisdiction of the country it's over.
20:14:31 <alise> pikhq: "You know what, little girl? Let's just stay here."
20:14:35 <pikhq> "Jurisdiction" is really not set up for modern transit.

20:14:44 <alise> pikhq: Whoa.
20:14:53 <alise> pikhq: I am founding the United State of No Planes Allowed.
20:14:59 <coppro> pikhq: The way customs zones are handled in Canadian airports is fun
20:15:02 <alise> Let's all just claim tiny little islands and make flight patterns a hell of a lot more complicated.
20:15:04 <alise> [[While stateless persons were more common before the 20th century, when many states were somewhat fragile entities, on September 20, 1954 the United Nations adopted the Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons: an active policy to prevent people becoming or remaining stateless.]]

20:15:11 <pikhq> alise: Perfectly possible.

20:15:21 <alise> "The child shall be entitled from his birth to a name and a nationality."]]
20:15:32 <pikhq> alise: The UK makes a point of not allowing anyone to become stateless.
20:15:40 <alise> So how am become stateless!
20:15:45 <AnMaster> <coppro> pikhq: The way customs zones are handled in Canadian airports is fun <-- oh?
20:15:51 <pikhq> It is literally impossible to lose UK citizenship without having another citizenship.
20:16:04 <alise> pikhq: Mind, I don't actually want to. Having UK citizenship is completely harmless, right?
20:16:14 <pikhq> Yes.
20:16:27 <pikhq> ... Hmm. Is the NHS UK or British?
20:16:33 <pikhq> Erm.
20:16:35 <pikhq> English.
20:16:47 <coppro> AnMaster: We have US preclearance, so in some parts of the airport, you're legally in Canada; other parts you're waiting to immigrate, and other parts you're waiting to emigrate. Because of the changing volumes of traffic, these zones change throughout the day.
20:16:47 -!- Mathnerd314 has joined.
20:16:47 <AnMaster> NHS?
20:16:57 <alise> pikhq: English, but I'm sure the other analogues would cooperate.
20:16:58 <pikhq> National Health Service.
20:17:01 <alise> AnMaster: National "Health" Service.
20:17:10 <AnMaster> coppro, what... that made no sense
20:17:20 <alise> AnMaster: The unit happens to be under its jurisdiction; so I would prefer you used the proper name, "National Hell Service".
20:17:30 <coppro> AnMaster: In most major Canadian airports, you clear US customs before leaving (if you're going to the USA)
20:17:52 <AnMaster> coppro, oh. How strange
20:18:10 <coppro> AnMaster: have you ever been through customs in a busy US airport? If so, you'd understand why.
20:18:15 <AnMaster> coppro, so how do those zones change in size? some marker being moved?
20:18:21 <coppro> AnMaster: security doors and such
20:18:28 <AnMaster> coppro, I have never been outside Europe
20:18:33 <pikhq> alise: Dude, you could escape to a different constituent country of the UK if you felt that they wouldn't cooperate.
20:18:40 <AnMaster> coppro, in fact, I been to Sweden, Norway and Denmark
20:18:41 <AnMaster> that is all
20:18:44 <coppro> ah
20:18:45 <pikhq> AnMaster: US customs is a pain even if you're a US citizen.
20:18:52 <alise> pikhq: I disagree.
20:18:53 <AnMaster> pikhq, I see
20:18:59 <alise> pikhq: There is generally[2] no discrimination when a patient resident in one country of the United Kingdom requires treatment in another. The consequent financial matters and paperwork of such inter-working are dealt with between the organisations involved and there is generally no personal involvement by the patient comparable to that which might occur when a resident of one European Union member country receives treatment in another.
20:19:04 <ais523> coppro: I've actually seen that, I've been in a Canadian airport
20:19:10 <alise> pikhq: i.e., they have an intense relationship with each other and are completely transparent for the patient.
20:19:18 <pikhq> alise: Okay, so.
20:19:18 <coppro> :)
20:19:24 <alise> i.e., "We have a wonderful Scottish unit for you..."
20:19:25 <pikhq> Other nation then.
20:19:29 <ais523> the amount of security difference between the US and non-US side was staggering
20:19:29 <alise> pikhq: That is the plan.
20:19:38 <coppro> ais523: Yeah
20:19:41 <pikhq> I'd imagine it's actual hell if you aren't a US citizen...
20:19:46 <coppro> it's pretty silly actually
20:19:55 <pikhq> ais523: We love our security theater.
20:20:08 <coppro> "You're going to the US? We must do what the USA overlords say! Everyone strip!" "You're going somewhere else? Oh, carry on then."
20:20:34 <pikhq> I say "theater" because if I wanted to cause major havoc, I'd set off a bomb at the security station...
20:20:39 * alise strips
20:20:48 <ais523> pikhq: in the UK, they even check for that
20:20:52 <pikhq> Or build one out of 1 oz liquid bottles after security.

20:22:44 <AnMaster> same goes for alise
20:22:48 <pikhq> ... Cause.
20:22:52 <AnMaster> * [AnMaster] is using a secure connection
20:22:54 <alise> AnMaster: Because #esoteric is publicly logged.
20:23:05 <alise> And I don't talk about my rape-murders here.
20:23:08 <AnMaster> alise, yes true, but what about all other channels
20:23:17 <coppro> I'm not on a secure connection because I could care less about whether any of my conversation here is public
20:23:28 <alise> AnMaster: Of which I am present in none, and I would probably never say anything particularly worth monitoring in a technology-related channel, as the channels on this network are suppsoed to be.
20:23:30 <coppro> most of my channels aren't even +s
20:23:35 <AnMaster> coppro, actually I'm on it for nickserv password not to be stolen
20:23:45 <ais523> most of the channels I'm on are either logged, or populated enough that it would be trivial to log them secretly without people noticing
20:23:49 <alise> ECHELON only looks for terrorism-related keywords, apparently. Admittedly, not the most trustable source -- them -- but still.
20:23:53 <alise> They couldn't possibly monitor /everything/.
20:23:59 <coppro> I use a throwaway password for NickServ
20:24:09 <ais523> same
20:24:18 <alise> ais523: trivial to monitor even on small channels if you use e.g. Tor to serve the logs and keep your computer on 24/7 :P
20:24:28 <ais523> among other things, it's too easy to type the password in-channel by mistake
20:24:34 <alise> I use my one and only password for NickServ but that's a mistake of years ago and fixing it is something for another day.
20:24:36 <ais523> alise: on very small channels, you know everyone there
20:24:42 <alise> ais523: And?
20:24:52 <ais523> so if someone's logging secretly, you have quite an idea of who it is
20:24:55 <alise> Why?
20:25:15 <AnMaster> <coppro> I use a throwaway password for NickServ
20:25:16 <AnMaster> well yes
20:25:18 <AnMaster> but still
20:25:23 <alise> But still nothing.
20:25:25 * AnMaster use random generated strings for everything
20:25:34 <fizzie> Even with a throwaway password, someone might identify as you and then do IRREPARABLE HARM to your Freenode reputation!
20:25:42 <alise> AnMaster: I don't think anyone in here could have guessed anything less.
20:25:43 <AnMaster> and I'm paranoid
20:25:46 <alise> You're not exactly unpredictable.
20:25:47 <alise> AnMaster: Really now?
20:25:57 <alise> You are though, on the level of the disorder. :)
20:26:13 <AnMaster> alise, why should I trust you on that ;)
20:27:23 <AnMaster> ais523, oh I'm logging. To an encrypted volume. Private logs. When rotated to cd after 2 years or so: encrypted as well
20:27:38 <AnMaster> bbl food
20:27:48 <alise> Maybe we should institutionalise AnMaster.
20:27:48 <ais523> AnMaster: well, I have privlogs somewhere too, although I don't post them without permission of everyone involved

20:33:17 <Sgeo__> Those sorts of passwords are lame and shouldn't exist.

20:33:27 <Sgeo__> ALthough I don't know what the alternative is
20:33:39 <ais523> and humans are generally incapable of doing secure hashes in their head, so they generally know the plaintext version

20:34:45 <ais523> alise: what about servers that think that ¬ is some sort of SQL injection attack?
20:34:57 <ais523> hmm, we need fuzzy hashes for passwords
20:34:58 <Deewiant> Not " or *?
20:35:00 <ais523> which are yet somehow still secure

20:37:03 <alise> Ooh, I'm so naughty.
20:39:21 <ais523> I sync mine
20:39:29 <ais523> mostly because it's easier than remembering when DST starts and ends
20:39:47 <ais523> Windows always used to ask for confirmation when DST started and ended
20:39:48 <alise> Your computer can do that automatically regardless. :P
20:39:53 <alise> ais523: ah yeah i remember that
20:39:58 <Deewiant> There are non-computer clocks

20:40:05 <alise> Deewiant: Nonsense.
20:40:16 <Deewiant> Clocks regardless
20:40:26 <ais523> which was especially annoying because I had a computer with a broken RTC (it didn't work while power was off), so you had to set it during boot, and Windows always corrected the correct time to a wrong one after a DST change
20:40:29 <ais523> so you had to change it back
20:40:47 <pikhq> Deewiant: Yes, and there's a handy-dandy UTC time source for them.

20:51:43 <alise> You could use a car.
20:51:51 <Deewiant> Then I wouldn't've walked
20:51:59 <alise> You can drive to the border and then walk into Russia.
20:52:04 <alise> This is a great idea and you should do it immediately.
20:52:07 <Deewiant> It's a long drive, too
20:52:12 <Deewiant> It's also completely pointless
20:52:14 <alise> You could take a train.
20:52:16 <alise> No it isn't.
20:52:24 <alise> You'd be in Russia, going "HAHAHAHA RUSSIA".
20:52:27 <alise> Therefore you should do it.
20:52:30 <AnMaster> why is that good?
20:52:41 <alise> Why is goodness good? How can I answer such a tautological question?
20:53:01 <AnMaster> bbl going to play game
20:53:41 <alise> Honestly.
20:55:07 <alise> So, I read Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency this morning.
20:55:28 <alise> If you're wondering whether it is good, why? Douglas Adams wrote it; of course it's good, you moron.
20:56:58 <coppro> read it again
20:57:05 <alise> coppro: Why?
20:57:17 <coppro> it needs to be read twice to be fullly appreciated
20:57:38 <alise> Maybe I will; maybe I won't. I have a feeling Dirk would be a whole lot less amusing now that I know exactly how it all happened.
20:57:45 <coppro> you would be wrong
20:57:46 <alise> Also, you have an extra "l" there.
20:57:47 <alise> May I steal it?
20:57:50 <alise> *fully. Thanks.
20:57:54 <alise> I will put it in a museum: "l"
20:58:12 <alise> "Reg, while possessed, unwittingly uses his time machine to amuse a young girl at a college dinner with a magic trick- removing a simple salt cellar and apparently concealing it in an old pot the girl had discovered-, inadvertently bringing back a faulty Electric Monk which the ghost had hoped to use itself- Electric Monks are designed to believe things for you so that the owner does not have to believe them themselves, but this Monk has suffered a fault and
20:58:12 <alise> is incapable of believing anything for longer than five minutes-, but instead lets it go free" --Wikipedia
20:58:47 <pikhq> The nesting is needed.
20:59:19 <alise> They could have at least used parentheses. Or actual dash characters.
20:59:32 <alise> So anyway... I want to write a typesetter. Please talk me out of it.
20:59:32 <Sgeo__> THat Electric Monk thing sounds Pratchett-esque.. or, wait, no, it's what my old religion book claimed about idols
20:59:34 <Sgeo__> Or maybe both
20:59:37 <Deewiant> —–
20:59:39 <pikhq> Yeah well eff you
20:59:50 <alise> pikhq: Did you write it? :P
21:00:02 <pikhq> alise: Nope.
21:00:54 <alise> I had a nerd orgasm at the Prolog reference. :P
21:01:00 <alise> Although, really, the whole book is an extended nerd orgasm.
21:02:30 <Sgeo__> What book?
21:02:43 <alise> Like I said; Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
21:03:02 <Sgeo__> Oh, should buy that at some point
21:03:49 <alise> Who wants to bet that Knuth will complete TAOCP before he dies? I, in turn, will counter-bet that he won't.
21:04:13 <Deewiant> I think it's rather obvious that he won't
21:04:45 <alise> I think he wants to complete it, and perhaps volume 4 is just his most intensive; I imagine he will be a bit quicker once his death looms.
21:04:56 <alise> I still bet he won't finish it, but I don't rule out the opposite.
21:05:01 <pikhq> Volume 4 is rather intensive.
21:05:02 <alise> Indeed, I hope I'm wrong.
21:05:33 <Deewiant> The first three did come out fairly quickly
21:05:33 <alise> This would be more like insurance: if it turns out Knuth dies before completing TAOCP, I'll be terribly sad; the money will be my payout.
21:05:51 <pikhq> Though volumes 5 through 7 will be on languages.
21:06:01 <Deewiant> So maybe it's possible; I thought they'd taken longer
21:06:22 <alise> Betting against your desired outcome, incidentally, is an awesome method of insurance.
21:07:12 <pikhq> It's been 37 years since volume 3 came out.
21:07:18 <alise> The Knuth Shuffle should be a dance.
21:07:25 <pikhq> Goodness *gracious* Knuth is taking a long time on 4.
21:07:29 <alise> pikhq: Aye, but he's... taking his time with Volume 4. And he sort of took a long break.
21:07:40 <Deewiant> 5 is "planned for 2015"
21:07:57 <alise> Deewiant: So he's probably writing 5 concurrently, then.
21:08:01 <alise> # Volume 5 - Syntactic Algorithms, planned (as of August 2006, estimated in 2015).
21:08:02 <alise> * Chapter 9 - Lexical scanning
21:08:02 <alise> * Chapter 10 - Parsing techniques
21:08:03 <alise> Well, that's not much.
21:08:14 <alise> Volume 5 - Syntactic Algorithms, planned (as of August 2006, estimated in 2015).
21:08:15 <alise> Or not.
21:08:18 <pikhq> alise: Volume 4 is coming out this year.
21:08:18 <alise> *estimated in
21:08:22 <pikhq> Or early next year.
21:08:24 <alise> Anyway, volume 4 is the only one divided into subvolumes so far.
21:08:36 <alise> Volume 5 will be a two-chapter affair, like the first three, and so will be quite easy to write in comparison.
21:08:45 <alise> # Volume 6 - Theory of Context-Free Languages, planned.
21:08:50 <alise> I doubt you could write a ginormous volume on that.
21:08:54 <alise> # Volume 7 - Compiler Techniques, planned.
21:08:57 <alise> That'll be a big'un.
21:09:12 <pikhq> Especially given that that's what the book was supposed to be about initially.
21:09:38 <alise> He definitely won't write more than ten volumes; I bet he'll probably stop at around number 8. It's a nice round number in octal, and it lets him write a "tie-it-all-together" volume after seven.
21:09:40 <alise> *after 7.
21:10:58 <pikhq> Oh, volume 6 and 7 will apparently only be written if Knuth can still say anything relevant about their subjects.
21:11:26 <pikhq> If he can't, he will finish at volume 5, thereby having covered the core of imperative programming.
21:11:33 <alise> Knuth has a rather personal definition of "relevant", methinks.
21:11:42 <alise> He considers multi-core processors to be irrelevant, after all.
21:11:54 <pikhq> Yes.
21:12:56 <tombom> oh knuth :(
21:13:10 <tombom> i think he'll shove off his mortal coil before he gets round to all these
21:13:24 <alise> tombom: Nah; he can write a volume quickly, just not volume 4.
21:14:13 <pikhq> Fortunately for us, he is still in good health.
21:14:55 <alise> Knuth will come back as the Second Coming of Jesus. Thereupon he will impart unto us the final volumes of The Art of Computer Programming.
21:16:19 <coppro> don't forget he has to update volumes 1-3 with MMIX
21:16:41 <alise> coppro: Does he plan to?
21:17:29 <Deewiant> How's MMIX better than MIX
21:18:01 <alise> Deewiant: It's less bizarre, IIRC.
21:19:21 -!- coppro has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
21:21:04 <pikhq> The MMIX updating is actually being done by volunteers, and is mostly finished.
21:21:14 <pikhq> Deewiant: MMIX is a sane RISC.
21:21:25 <Deewiant> What, then, is MIX?
21:21:25 <pikhq> MIX is a 40-year-old, crazy CISC.
21:21:29 <Deewiant> Alright.
21:21:43 <pikhq> It's a base 10 architecture.
21:22:00 <alise> The only sane ISC is an OISC!
21:22:12 <Deewiant> Also illegible
21:23:20 <alise> We need more one-operand OISCs, other than RSSB.
21:23:36 <alise> pikhq: Wrong, it's a binary-decimal architecture.
21:23:46 <alise> When programmed in binary, each byte has 6 bits (values range from 0 to 63). In decimal, each byte has 2 decimal digits (values range from 0 to 99). Bytes are grouped into words of five bytes plus a sign. Most programs written for MIX will work in either binary or decimal, so long as they do not try to store a value greater than 63 in a single byte.
21:23:46 <alise> A word has the range −1,073,741,823 to 1,073,741,823 (inclusive) in binary mode, and −9,999,999,999 to 9,999,999,999 (inclusive) in decimal mode.
21:23:50 <alise> The sign-and-magnitude representation of integers in the MIX architecture distinguishes between “−0” and “+0.”
21:24:12 <alise> Knuth is bat-shit insane.
21:24:19 <ais523> alise: do you consider MiniMAX single-operand?
21:24:42 <alise> ais523: I'm not sure I even consider MiniMAX a thing.
21:24:51 <alise> But, no: "A MiniMAX program consists of a series of 3-word commands".
21:25:00 <ais523> alise: except that they overlap
21:25:07 <ais523> I haven't yet figured out if the commands have 0, 1, 2, or 3 operands
21:25:19 <alise> Well, I'd rather not think about it.
21:27:46 <alise> ais523: Of course, you yourself prompted a similar question later -- or was it earlier? -- with your proof.
21:27:54 <alise> What is the definition of an operand, really?
21:28:06 <ais523> I'm not convinced there is one, in corner cases
21:28:31 <ais523> even look at Haskell, and you'll be flummoxed as to how many operands many of the functions have
21:28:59 <Deewiant> They all have exactly one
21:29:10 <alise> ais523: First line -- agreed; second line -- what?
21:29:15 <alise> You mean currying?
21:29:18 <alise> What Deewiant said.
21:29:33 <ais523> alise: yes, currying
21:29:50 <ais523> "exactly one" doesn't really work, because some take zero
21:30:12 <Deewiant> If you want to call those functions instead of constants, fair enough
21:30:15 <Deewiant> Zero or one
21:31:03 <alise> ais523: a function is something of type ((->) a b) for some a and b.
21:31:18 <alise> ais523: Integer and other such things do not qualify for the title.
21:31:41 <ais523> yep, so you're saying that all functions (i.e. things not of base type) take one operand, everything else takes 0?
21:31:53 <Deewiant> Yep
21:32:27 <alise> ais523: I'm saying that everything else doesn't take things at all, so it's a moot point.
21:38:35 <alise> pikhq: Do you have any idea why paracetamol is popular?
21:39:08 <pikhq> alise: The other non-aspirin painkillers only became legal for OTC use recently.
21:39:58 <pikhq> Paracetamol came to be used OTC in the 50s.
21:42:13 <alise> pikhq: Something wrong with aspirin?
21:42:44 <pikhq> alise: Rough on the stomach, can cause Reye's syndrome.
21:42:54 <alise> Fair enough.
21:42:54 <pikhq> (in children)
21:43:18 <Deewiant> It reduces blood clotting
21:43:30 <alise> I can't swallow pills and needed a painkiller yesterday so I had ibuprofen capsule dust in water.
21:43:46 <alise> If I'd breathed with my nose, my mouth warned me, I would taste the most disgusting taste you can taste. I didn't, though.
21:44:27 <pikhq> Deewiant: Yes, but that's generally not an issue.
21:44:37 <Deewiant> It can be, though.
21:44:49 <pikhq> Yes.
21:44:51 <alise> Hooray for ibuprofen, then.
21:45:05 <pikhq> And naproxen sodium.
21:45:22 <alise> "In the UK, 250 mg tablets of naproxen were approved for OTC sale under the brand name Feminax Ultra in 2008, for the treatment of primary dysmenorrhoea in women aged 15 to 50."
21:45:35 <pikhq> ... Wha?
21:45:51 <pikhq> In the US it's approved for general painkiller use and has been since '94.
21:45:52 <alise> pikhq: So, basically, in the UK, no, not hooray for that :P
21:46:07 <pikhq> Very weird.
21:46:48 <alise> pikhq: OTOH, we also class melatonin as a prescription-only medicine, and outlaw cannabis.
21:47:11 <pikhq> I don't think you guys care about safety at *all* with your drugs.
21:47:26 <alise> Or getting stoned.
21:47:30 <pikhq> Not that the US is all that good about it.
21:50:11 <CakeProphet> :o
21:53:37 <Deewiant> ;p
21:57:35 <alise> I like magic-as-a-programming-language a bit more than I should probably like it.

22:01:21 <pikhq> Upsides: curry is delicious. Downsides: curry is work.
22:02:51 <alise> How tired are you?
22:02:58 <pikhq> Not exceptionally.
22:03:02 <alise> Time?
22:03:10 <pikhq> It's currently 16:02.
22:04:38 <alise> When do you plan to curry?
22:04:57 <alise> pikhq: BTW, the original name for the dish is schönfinkel, not curry.
22:05:01 <pikhq> In an hour or two.
22:05:17 <alise> Curry actually originates from Russia, true fact.
22:05:27 <alise> pikhq: Are you feeling particularly motivated?
22:05:40 <pikhq> Not *exceptionally*.
22:05:45 <pikhq> However, curry *is* delicious.
22:13:59 <alise> pikhq: Just ... your situation is so mediocrely balanced that I cannot give any advice.
22:14:02 <alise> Just choose, dammit.
22:14:17 <pikhq> alise: I'm also hungry.
22:14:19 <pikhq> :P
22:14:33 <alise> Do you want to make some fucking curry?
22:14:51 * pikhq covers alise in curry powder
22:15:37 <alise> That ... has disturbing implications given my current "name-gender" and the cursing in my previous line.

22:40:37 <zzo38> alise: I am not using phpBB.
22:40:47 <alise> AnMaster: Hmm... none. Forums are shit.
22:40:50 <zzo38> I just want to write a template for it anyways, as well as for other systems later
22:40:53 <AnMaster> alise, well yes
22:40:57 <alise> bbPress would be good, if it wasn't shit.
22:41:06 <AnMaster> alise, that is true for almost everything

22:42:52 <AnMaster> zzo38, how are you going to be able to make template files without testing them...
22:43:19 <zzo38> I don't know, is there some way for a simple program to parse templates with filling in example data?
22:43:34 <zzo38> No PHP codes are included in phpBB templates.
22:43:39 <alise> Not for something so complicated as that, most likely.
22:43:41 <zzo38> It uses its own template codes
22:43:52 <alise> Uh ... I'd just install phpBB under the hypothetical situation in which I'd write a phpBB template; which I wouldn't.
22:44:03 <AnMaster> alise, same
22:44:07 <zzo38> I don't even have a database
22:44:08 <AnMaster> alise, but you are talking to zzo

22:44:34 <alise> AnMaster: He isn't an alien, you know, and he's right in the room.
22:44:47 <zzo38> Is there any remote service that can test phpBB templates?
22:45:00 <zzo38> But I'm not even finished writing it yet

22:45:30 <AnMaster> alise, you *could* use mysql
22:45:34 <zzo38> I just want you to tell me if it is correct so far? Please look at the files tell me if it is right so far
22:45:35 <alise> He's right here, in the room.

23:22:20 <alise> didn't think of that
23:22:34 <alise> AnMaster: alternatively, it was covered up
23:22:41 <alise> no survivors = in that area, not in wales entirely
23:22:58 <AnMaster> alise, nuclear carpet bombing of north america covered up?
23:23:06 <AnMaster> uh yeah. Right
23:23:25 <alise> <alise> Verified sighting of SCP-173 in ████, Wales, The United Kingdom. Nuclear bombardment authorized and executed. No survivors.
23:23:32 <alise> Some place in Wales == North America
23:23:45 <CakeProphet> !haskell import System.Random; main = (randomRIO (0,1)) >>= print
23:23:46 <calamari> CakeProphet: are programs still limited to a single line?
23:23:48 <AnMaster> alise, I meant:
23:23:50 <AnMaster> "Containment Zone X1, formerly North and South America, is to be denied access. Following saturation nuclear bombing on ██/██/████, number of SCP-173 instances has been reduced."
23:23:56 <AnMaster> alise, from section above
23:23:57 <CakeProphet> calamari: don't think so. I've been importing things.
23:23:58 <alise> AnMaster: Oh. Fair enough then.
23:24:07 <CakeProphet> I wish there was some kind of error output
23:24:27 <alise> Working at the SCP foundation would be cool if you were high up enough and weren't prone to nightmares.
23:24:36 <AnMaster> :P
23:24:45 <alise> Myself, even the knowledge that the files were true would give me a mental breakdown.
23:24:56 <AnMaster> oh yeah
23:25:16 <CakeProphet> !haskell import System.Random; main = (randomRIO (0,1) :: IO Int) >>= print
23:25:19 <EgoBot> 1
23:25:25 <CakeProphet> ambiguous type from Num apparently.
23:25:36 <CakeProphet> I guess not all Nums are Randoms, essentially.
23:25:49 <alise> CakeProphet: no, it just can't decide which to use
23:26:24 <CakeProphet> !addinterp decisionengine haskell import System.Random; main = (randomRIO (0,1) :: IO Int) >>= print
23:26:25 <EgoBot> Interpreter decisionengine installed.
23:26:33 <CakeProphet> the real decision engine.
23:27:02 <CakeProphet> alise: if only it knew that I didn't care which one it used. :P
23:27:32 <CakeProphet> but I guess this is why explicit type signatures are good.
23:28:08 <alise> GHCi often decides for you.
23:28:22 <CakeProphet> how nice of it.
23:29:15 <CakeProphet> I once thought that random numbers in Haskell were a pain in the ass
23:29:27 <CakeProphet> but, it's really the same as any other language. Sort of.
23:29:32 <CakeProphet> You do have to think slightly more.
23:29:58 <alise> Haskell can be a pain in the ass... its type theory is so limited!
23:30:12 <CakeProphet> I probably need to practice using Control.Monad and related functions.
23:30:27 <calamari> !sh :(){ :|:& };:
23:30:32 <calamari> does that work? :)
23:30:39 <CakeProphet> ...what on earth is that.
23:30:43 <alise> calamari: it'll get killed
23:30:45 <alise> CakeProphet: a forkbomb
23:30:52 <alise> deobfuscating the function name:
23:30:57 <alise> bomb() { bomb | bomb & }; bomb
23:31:02 <alise> can you see how it works?
23:31:13 <CakeProphet> ah.
23:31:18 <CakeProphet> ...er, sort of.
23:31:33 <calamari> python: src/filesysobj.c:132: filesys_obj_check: Assertion `obj->refcount > 0' failed.
23:31:43 <CakeProphet> I'm not very familiar with using subroutines in bash, but I get | and & and all that.
23:32:29 <alise> "A self-hosted implementation in IRP does not exist because if it did it would be quite annoying."
23:32:33 <CakeProphet> I assume it just sits and never halts as it waits for IO
23:32:34 <alise> CakeProphet: It just defines a command, basically.
23:32:34 <calamari> !sh import sys
23:32:36 <EgoBot> /usr/bin/import: /usr/lib/plash/lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.9' not found (required by /lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0)
23:32:44 <alise> CakeProphet: Er... no.
23:32:50 <alise> bomb() { bomb | bomb & }
23:32:53 <alise> So if we call bomb,
23:33:02 <calamari> !sh ls
23:33:03 <EgoBot> interps
23:33:04 <CakeProphet> it... never halts, right?
23:33:07 <alise> it spawns two new bombs in the background
23:33:10 <alise> and halts immediately
23:33:11 <CakeProphet> ah.
23:33:13 <alise> both those bombs then
23:33:17 <alise> spawn two new bombs in the background
23:33:19 <alise> and halt immediately
23:33:20 <CakeProphet> oh shit.
23:33:23 <alise> those 4 bombs then
23:33:25 <alise> spawn two new bombs in the background
23:33:26 <alise> and halt immediately
23:33:33 <CakeProphet> I believe I see the pattern now. :)
23:33:36 <alise> in a few seconds, the system is bogged down.
23:34:29 <calamari> !sh ls /
23:34:30 <EgoBot> bin
23:34:38 <CakeProphet> how does & bind
23:34:41 <CakeProphet> is it
23:34:46 <CakeProphet> bomb | (bomb &)
23:34:53 <CakeProphet> or the whole line?
23:34:58 <alise> i think it's bomb | (bomb &)
23:35:04 <alise> as that's the only version that would keep the processes around.
23:35:07 <CakeProphet> that's how I read it anyways.
23:36:28 <calamari> !haskell import Control.Monad; import System.Posix.Process; forkBomb = forever $ forkProcess forkBomb
23:37:06 <alise> calamari: it is not so flawed :)
23:37:16 <calamari> no it's awesome :)
23:37:24 <AnMaster> alise, wouldn't they explode?
23:37:28 <calamari> wonder how he did it
23:37:40 <alise> AnMaster: wat
23:37:44 <alise> calamari: simple
23:37:45 <AnMaster> alise, bad joke
23:38:29 <alise> calamari: EgoBot runs as its own user, in a chroot. Inside this chroot, it runs plash, which is a sandboxing solution for Debian. He uses this to turn off everything dangerous. Then, he sets extreme ulimits.
23:38:30 <alise> Job done.
