00:00:52 <aliseiphone> I suggest SMB3.
00:01:00 <aliseiphone> Rereading is boring. >_>
00:01:07 <CakeProphet> well I'm rereading because I never finished
00:01:24 <aliseiphone> Alright then.
00:01:25 <CakeProphet> so I want to re-read so I can finish the ending. My memory is terrible too so it's like reading it the first time almost. :)
00:01:29 <micahjohnston> that book is not at my public library but it sounds awesome
00:01:37 <cpressey> Night folks.
00:01:41 -!- cpressey has changed nick to cpressey_away.
00:01:57 <AnMaster> nooga, slowly I guess. The ants are unlikely to be very fast
00:02:08 <CakeProphet> it is. It's not the best work of literature but it's certainly awesome. It's one of the first true "steampunk" novels.
00:02:20 -!- MizardX has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
00:02:22 <CakeProphet> aliseiphone: actually. fuck reading. SMB3 it is.
00:02:39 <aliseiphone> Indeed. :P
00:02:50 <CakeProphet> aliseiphone: what's the current state of Braces? We should add an interpreter to one of the bots. :)
00:03:09 <aliseiphone> That's what one of my bots had.
00:03:13 <aliseiphone> Forget which.
00:03:24 <CakeProphet> what emulator do you use?
00:03:33 <CakeProphet> !braces print "Hello, #esoteric"
00:03:39 <CakeProphet> `braces print "Hello, #esoteric"
00:03:47 <CakeProphet> what's the other?
00:03:50 -!- aliseiphone_ has joined.
00:03:56 <HackEgo> No output.
00:04:18 <CakeProphet> oh, one of your bots
00:04:21 <CakeProphet> not one of the channel bots.
00:05:03 <CakeProphet> but yeah, is there a SNES emulator you use that works well? My computer isn't the best but it seems reasonable that it can run a virtual SNES
00:05:42 -!- aliseiphone has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
00:05:45 -!- aliseiphone_ has changed nick to aliseiphone.
00:06:08 <CakeProphet> ah. found one called zsnes
00:06:27 <CakeProphet> I fucking love aptitude.
00:09:04 <CakeProphet> and emulators. and ROM images.
00:11:36 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, isn't zsnes basically _the_ snes emulator
00:11:39 <AnMaster> the best one
00:11:51 <AnMaster> there is some other one iirc
00:11:51 <CakeProphet> I don't know shit about SNES emulators.
00:14:23 <CakeProphet> oh my god.....
00:14:31 <CakeProphet> I'll be able to play Yoshi's Island
00:14:55 <aliseiphone> I just play yoshi island ds
00:15:00 <micahjohnston> but it's not as good
00:15:02 <micahjohnston> the graphics are all different
00:15:31 <aliseiphone> Meh.
00:17:37 <aliseiphone> Well, this is boring.
00:17:51 <aliseiphone> pikhq: Modified cal yet?
00:18:21 <pikhq> aliseiphone: Nein.
00:18:29 <pikhq> AnMaster: No, zsnes is not the best SNES emulator.
00:18:30 <CakeProphet> hmmm, oddly enough I'm having trouble finding a ROM for SMB3
00:18:31 <pikhq> BSNES is.
00:18:33 <aliseiphone> Nine.
00:18:33 -!- iamcal has quit.
00:18:54 <aliseiphone> Bullshit nes?
00:19:02 <pikhq> Byuu SNES.
00:19:07 <pikhq> One-man project.
00:19:15 <pikhq> Perfect implementation of the SNES.
00:19:36 <aliseiphone> Well, see you guys.
00:19:39 <aliseiphone> Bye.
00:19:47 -!- aliseiphone has quit (Quit: Get Colloquy for iPhone! http://mobile.colloquy.info).
00:19:48 <pikhq> "The following three titles are unplayable, due to special on-cart DSPs whose program ROMs have not been extracted.
00:19:51 <pikhq> * Hayazashi Nidan Morita Shougi 1 (uses ST-0011 co-processor) * Hayazashi Nidan Morita Shougi 2 (uses ST-0018 co-processor) * SD Gundam GX (uses DSP-3 co-processor)
00:19:53 <pikhq> Anything not in the above list is assumed to be fully compatible and bug-free.
00:19:56 <pikhq> "
00:20:31 <nooga> emulate the dsps
00:20:50 <pikhq> The problem is that the ROMs for those DSPs aren't available.
00:20:55 <micahjohnston> bsnes is really good
00:20:57 <micahjohnston> I use it
00:20:59 <pikhq> Which means that those games have never been dumped.
00:22:34 <olsner> whaddyamean not available
00:23:19 <pikhq> olsner: Presumably rare, and no collector is willing to let some guy desolder the chips to dump the DSP ROM.
00:26:54 <CakeProphet> hmmm... this ROM doesn't seem accurate.
00:27:07 -!- cal153 has joined.
00:27:15 <CakeProphet> it's broken up into a bunch of files and a "security.prm"
00:34:34 <nooga> ha
00:34:36 <nooga> new libc
00:41:23 <AnMaster> pikhq, is it as fast as zsnes?
00:41:38 <AnMaster> pikhq, and what about support add-on thingies like that used by some games
00:41:46 <AnMaster> like star fox iirc
00:42:11 <pikhq> AnMaster: No, zsnes is intended to run on an old Pentium.
00:42:18 <pikhq> BSNES runs at full speed on a decent Core II.
00:42:29 <AnMaster> pikhq, what about a sempron 3300+?
00:42:36 <pikhq> Probably.
00:43:05 <pikhq> Yes, BSNES supports all the add-in chips in games except for those three aforementioned.
00:43:14 <AnMaster> hm
00:43:16 <pikhq> It is a *perfect* emulation of the SNES.
00:43:36 <AnMaster> pikhq, does it support cheating? ;)
00:43:41 <pikhq> Yes.
00:44:02 <pikhq> You could even hook up a Gameshark ROM to it if you wanted. :P
00:44:23 <AnMaster> haha
00:44:37 <pikhq> It also includes a Gameboy emulator.
00:44:44 <pikhq> For the sake of the Super GameBoy.
00:44:52 <AnMaster> anything wrong with visualboyadvance?
00:45:00 <AnMaster> pikhq, super gameboy being?
00:45:18 <pikhq> The Super Gameboy was a SNES cartridge that had a Gameboy in it.
00:45:28 <pikhq> You could play Gameboy games on your SNES using it.
00:45:31 <AnMaster> ah
00:45:40 <pikhq> BSNES is the only emulator that supports this.
00:45:55 <pikhq> Which is quite nice, as some Gameboy games actually came with SNES code on the cartridge.
00:46:07 <AnMaster> # AMD Phenom II or Core 2 Duo <-- that is recommended
00:46:09 <AnMaster> riiight
00:46:23 <pikhq> Yes, it's necessary.
00:46:32 <AnMaster> pikhq, so yeah I'll use zsnes
00:46:46 <pikhq> It's got to do emulation at the level of clock cycle to emulate the SNES correctly.
00:46:53 <pikhq> If it doesn't games break.
00:47:04 <AnMaster> pikhq, so does zsnes presumably?
00:47:26 <pikhq> ... No, zsnes doesn't even get the clock *rate* accurate.
00:47:32 <AnMaster> okay
00:47:42 <AnMaster> pikhq, it works nicely for all the games I tried though
00:47:46 <pikhq> And zsnes has a lot of crazy hacks to get specific games working.
00:47:59 <AnMaster> pikhq, it works on my hardware though
00:48:13 <pikhq> AnMaster: Dude, get a computer newer than 7 years old.
00:48:31 <pikhq> Hacks ranging from "change the CPU clock rate" to "patch the memory upon a specific trigger".
00:48:38 <AnMaster> pikhq, okay mine is above the mini specs
00:48:54 <AnMaster> but well below the recommended specs
00:49:00 <nooga> Chrono Trigger!
00:49:03 <AnMaster> I'd prefer to play on desktop rather than laptop
00:49:05 <AnMaster> nooga, :)
00:49:09 <olsner> sega saturn looks wild! 8 different programmable CPU:s, each with a different instruction set
00:49:21 <AnMaster> olsner, ouch
00:49:25 <pikhq> Yeah, those recommended specs are to be able to handle things like Star Fox.
00:49:45 <olsner> (well, except one of them that shares the instruction set with the other primary CPU)
00:49:48 <AnMaster> pikhq, starfox works nicely for me under zsens though
00:49:58 <nooga> brb, sleep
00:50:13 <pikhq> AnMaster: But is it behaving literally exactly like a SNES? HAH no.
00:50:13 -!- nooga has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
00:50:24 <AnMaster> pikhq, does it matter though?
00:50:39 <AnMaster> pikhq, I don't have a snes keypad anyway
00:50:41 <pikhq> Sometimes, yes.
00:50:45 <AnMaster> I have to use the keyboard
00:50:50 <AnMaster> pikhq, does it matter for star fox I meant
00:50:58 <CakeProphet> zsnes can be a little jumpy on my system but that's likely because I have a Celeron
00:51:04 <pikhq> I dunno.
00:51:35 <AnMaster> pikhq, not everyone can afford the very best system
00:52:02 <pikhq> AnMaster: Dude, a Core II or a Phenom 2 isn't "the very best system".
00:52:16 <pikhq> That's "low-end computer".
00:52:21 <AnMaster> pikhq, true but playing on laptop would be painful, small screen and such
00:52:29 <AnMaster> pikhq, and high res screen
00:52:33 <pikhq> ... Why are you talking about laptops?
00:52:37 <AnMaster> also intel graphics
00:52:42 <CakeProphet> okay so
00:52:44 <AnMaster> pikhq, because my laptop is core 2 duo
00:52:47 <CakeProphet> when I compile programs from source
00:52:49 <AnMaster> my desktop is sempron 3300+
00:52:53 <CakeProphet> where is the standard locations for putting the output?
00:52:57 <AnMaster> pikhq, so I'm talking about my specific laptop
00:53:03 <AnMaster> not laptops in general
00:53:08 <pikhq> AnMaster: Spend $200. Get you a much, much, much nicer desktop.
00:53:35 <AnMaster> pikhq, can't afford that. Also will it have PCI? I won't give up my soundblaster live card
00:54:00 <pikhq> It's still nearly impossible to find a motherboard without PCI support.
00:54:05 <AnMaster> hm
00:54:09 <pikhq> AnMaster: Say, what socket is your Sempron 3300+?
00:54:11 <AnMaster> pikhq, not what I heard from other people
00:54:21 <AnMaster> pikhq, can you check with /proc/cpuinfo?
00:54:24 <AnMaster> I don't remember
00:54:41 * pikhq looks up the model
00:54:56 <AnMaster> http://sprunge.us/gcSM
00:54:59 <AnMaster> is /proc/cpuinfo
00:55:01 -!- iamcal has joined.
00:55:01 <pikhq> AnMaster: No, but you can find the "cpu family" and "model" in there which can help googling...
00:55:16 <AnMaster> pikhq, see paste
00:55:26 * pikhq looks
00:55:49 <AnMaster> pikhq, max speed is 2 GHz, but I'm running dynamic speed
00:57:15 <pikhq> ... August 2004, Socket 754.
00:57:23 <AnMaster> possibly
00:57:30 <AnMaster> that's not 7 years
00:57:30 <pikhq> *Why are you running a 6 year old processor*.
00:57:33 <AnMaster> that is 6 years
00:57:37 -!- cal153 has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
00:57:40 <AnMaster> pikhq, because it hasn't broken yet
00:57:47 <AnMaster> I see no need to replace what isn't broken
00:58:01 <AnMaster> pikhq, until about a year ago I had a 10 year old phone
00:58:06 <AnMaster> because it still worked
00:58:10 <pikhq> AnMaster: You can has a few orders of magnitude increase in system speed.
00:58:17 <pikhq> *Orders of magnitude* man.
00:58:25 <AnMaster> pikhq, works for me though
00:58:45 <CakeProphet> I really don't like that downloading EMACS via aptitude reset my file associations...
00:58:54 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, how strange.
00:59:08 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, I blame this on debian really
00:59:10 <CakeProphet> it's almost as if it wants to convert me
00:59:22 <CakeProphet> but I refuse. I need a GUI
00:59:25 <CakeProphet> at least for now.
00:59:25 <pikhq> AnMaster: Allow me to analogise: you're using an Apple II in '95. You're using a Pentium in 2000. You're using a Pentium III in 2005.
00:59:29 <pikhq> *Upgrade for crissake!*
00:59:42 <AnMaster> pikhq, not until it breaks.
00:59:54 <CakeProphet> I plan to upgrade when I have enough money
00:59:59 <AnMaster> pikhq, besides I can't afford it
01:00:00 <CakeProphet> might actually put it on a student loan
01:00:08 <pikhq> Okay, who wants to put in for a collection to send someone to break AnMaster's desktop?
01:00:12 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, yeah I'm a student too
01:00:21 <pikhq> AnMaster: How much expendable money do you have?
01:00:43 <AnMaster> pikhq, not much, student. Had to get a new harddrive recently, cost quite a bit
01:00:52 <AnMaster> 2000 SEK I would guess
01:01:06 <CakeProphet> my current liquid assets totals... $20
01:01:11 <CakeProphet> US
01:01:14 <AnMaster> you can convert that to your preferred currency yourself
01:01:29 <pikhq> AnMaster: $262? Okay, that's enough to get a quite *good* computer.
01:01:43 <AnMaster> pikhq, yes but I need to get some other stuff soon
01:01:43 <AnMaster> so
01:01:51 <AnMaster> pikhq, besides it is more expensive over here
01:01:56 <CakeProphet> by other stuff he means drugs
01:01:57 <AnMaster> pikhq, we have higher VAT
01:01:57 <CakeProphet> obviously.
01:01:59 <pikhq> Given that you've already gotten a modern HD, you could probably upgrade decently for more like $80.
01:02:09 <AnMaster> pikhq, do you even have VAT over in US?
01:02:20 <AnMaster> it is 25% here iirc
01:02:22 <pikhq> AnMaster: No, we just have a sales tax added at point-of-sale.
01:02:23 <AnMaster> for most stuff
01:02:29 <AnMaster> 20% for some other stuff
01:02:50 <CakeProphet> VAT?
01:02:56 <pikhq> And it varies from state to state.
01:02:58 <CakeProphet> a sales tax? Yeah. But not that high.
01:03:11 <pikhq> CakeProphet: "Value added tax".
01:03:16 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, it is called moms in Sweden. VAT is the UK name
01:03:31 <CakeProphet> I don't remember what the percentage is here in Georgia, USA. Somewhere in the upper single digits.
01:03:35 <AnMaster> thought that would be more familiar to people in US
01:03:38 <pikhq> It's a tax on the added value provided by some entity between when they purchased a good and when they sold it, IIRC.
01:03:55 <AnMaster> pikhq, so yeah 2000 SEK in US would last far longer than 2000 SEK here
01:04:19 <pikhq> AnMaster: Yes, but there wouldn't be 2000 SEK available.
01:04:28 <CakeProphet> what is SEK?
01:04:30 <AnMaster> pikhq, hm?
01:04:33 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, a currency
01:04:36 <pikhq> Remember that we're the crazy freaks who charge thousands for basic medical needs.
01:04:39 <CakeProphet> Swedish?
01:04:42 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, yes
01:05:29 <pikhq> And about 90% of the people here are in debt.
01:05:34 <AnMaster> mhm
01:05:42 <pikhq> We're fucking nuts.
01:06:02 <CakeProphet> pikhq: you live in the US??
01:06:09 <pikhq> AnMaster: Oh, you'd also be paying for school.
01:06:10 <AnMaster> pikhq, A reasonable CPU would cost about 1500 SEK around here
01:06:16 <AnMaster> or at least did half a year ago
01:06:18 <pikhq> AnMaster: Define "reasonable".
01:06:28 <pikhq> CakeProphet: Yes.
01:06:31 <AnMaster> pikhq, fast core 2 duo
01:06:45 <AnMaster> pikhq, about half a year or a year ago
01:06:46 <pikhq> AnMaster: Dude, that's faster than you would reasonably need.
01:06:54 <AnMaster> pikhq, mhm
01:07:00 <pikhq> They're awesome and all, but not worth twice the cash.
01:07:12 <AnMaster> pikhq, didn't say core i7
01:07:24 <pikhq> Yeah: AMD is *cheap*.
01:07:39 <AnMaster> pikhq, and shittier iirc
01:07:43 <pikhq> My CPU cost me $40 (304 SEK).
01:08:04 <AnMaster> mobo would cost more than 500 SEK around here
01:08:07 <AnMaster> I'm quite sure
01:08:09 <pikhq> AnMaster: Still faster than you could possibly wish for.
01:08:16 <AnMaster> plus I suspect I would need to upgrade ram
01:08:33 <AnMaster> pikhq, and my GPU is AGP
01:08:42 <AnMaster> so I would either need AGP board or need to replace that too
01:08:42 <pikhq> RAM's nearly approached the "give away" point...
01:08:46 <pikhq> AnMaster: Oh dear.
01:08:55 <AnMaster> pikhq, geforce 7600
01:08:58 <AnMaster> so not a too bad GPU
01:09:03 -!- micahjohnston has left (?).
01:09:09 <pikhq> Okay, yeah. Here's what you're going to do: you're going to *save* so you can get a better system.
01:09:21 <pikhq> So you can skip forward a few *generations* of tech.
01:10:29 <AnMaster> mhm
01:10:41 <AnMaster> pikhq, I do save as much as I can afford
01:10:48 <AnMaster> already
01:11:00 <pikhq> AnMaster: You're also going to count yourself glad that you're not in the US.
01:11:05 <AnMaster> pikhq, costs for housing, food and so on are high in Sweden
01:11:14 <AnMaster> higher than US at least
01:11:21 <pikhq> AnMaster: And how much do you pay for your college?
01:11:35 <AnMaster> pikhq, that, nil, but housing does cost
01:11:47 <pikhq> AnMaster: And how much do you pay for your textbooks?
01:11:58 <AnMaster> pikhq, quite a bit
01:12:06 <pikhq> Define "quite a bit".
01:12:24 <AnMaster> pikhq, about 1600 SEK for the autumn
01:12:43 <AnMaster> lots of expensive books
01:12:50 <pikhq> $209? Okay. That's 2 textbooks.
01:12:58 <AnMaster> sorry, just checked, closer to 1900 SEK
01:13:03 -!- FireFly has quit (Quit: swatted to death).
01:13:07 <AnMaster> 1949.50 SEK
01:13:10 <AnMaster> to be exact
01:13:15 <pikhq> How many books?
01:13:22 <AnMaster> pikhq, *counts*
01:13:26 <AnMaster> 5
01:14:06 <AnMaster> pikhq, one of the books cost 680 SEK, the other ones are less expensive
01:14:30 <pikhq> AnMaster: Those'd be considered somewhat cheaper textbooks in the US. That's still pretty bad though.
01:14:40 <AnMaster> pikhq, yep
01:14:53 <AnMaster> pikhq, these are the paper back versions
01:14:59 <AnMaster> pikhq, hard cover would have cost about twice this
01:15:05 <pikhq> Now add another ~$8,000 (60977 SEK) onto that.
01:15:14 <AnMaster> pikhq, for what?
01:15:19 <pikhq> Tuition.
01:15:22 <AnMaster> ah...
01:15:25 <AnMaster> that's bad
01:15:33 <pikhq> That's very cheap.
01:15:36 <AnMaster> pikhq, but where does the money go. Not into the teacher's pockets
01:16:01 <AnMaster> pikhq, also can't you get a grant or such in the US for it?
01:16:05 <AnMaster> if you have good grades
01:16:29 <pikhq> AnMaster: You can sometimes find a scholarship *from private entities*, yes.
01:16:41 <AnMaster> huh
01:16:57 <pikhq> The US government will (unless your family is so poor as to be having trouble feeding themselves) offer you a loan.
01:17:13 <AnMaster> and if your family is that poor, then what?
01:17:25 <pikhq> Then they will start giving you some money.
01:17:44 <pikhq> *Start*.
01:17:48 <AnMaster> mhm
01:18:16 <AnMaster> yes US sucks, but Sweden sucks too. Everywhere sucks in facrt
01:18:18 <AnMaster> fact'
01:18:19 <AnMaster> *
01:18:33 <pikhq> AnMaster: It gets worse if you go to a somewhat notable school. Or if you go to an out-of-state school.
01:18:40 <AnMaster> mhm
01:19:35 <AnMaster> I'm still wondering how US manages to keep military budget that high
01:19:48 <pikhq> Half our taxes!
01:19:50 <AnMaster> here it would be political suicide to not try to cut the defence budget
01:20:05 <CakeProphet> by funneling a very very large percentage of funds into it.
01:20:27 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, and that would be political suicide here
01:21:20 <CakeProphet> according to Wikipedia
01:21:45 <CakeProphet> the United States spent 663,255,000,000 on the military in 2009. I assume that figure it US dollars?
01:21:50 <AnMaster> huh
01:21:55 <AnMaster> anyway have to sleep
01:21:57 <AnMaster> night →
01:21:59 <pikhq> AnMaster: For out-of-state tuition at a vaguely notable school (CU Boulder): $28,186 (214839 SEK).
01:22:13 <AnMaster> pikhq, what about MIT?
01:22:57 <AnMaster> pikhq, also out of state wouldn't apply to Sweden. After all, we are about as big as one of your states
01:22:57 <pikhq> Uh, $37,782 (287981 SEK).
01:23:17 <AnMaster> 287 981 SEK right
01:23:26 <AnMaster> (that is how you write it, with space separator)
01:23:38 <AnMaster> (either that or a dot)
01:23:44 <AnMaster> (comma is for decimal in Swedish)
01:23:50 <CakeProphet> ...freaks. :P
01:23:58 <pikhq> Right.
01:24:09 <AnMaster> actually I think it should be a thin space really
01:24:11 <AnMaster> in Swedish
01:24:11 <pikhq> And "Books and personal expenses are about $2,858."...
01:24:16 <AnMaster> not completely sure
01:24:30 <CakeProphet> pikhq: that's because the books are outrageously priced.
01:24:40 <pikhq> (21 784 SEK)
01:24:43 <pikhq> CakeProphet: They are.
01:24:57 <CakeProphet> but hey
01:25:01 <CakeProphet> the university business is booming.
01:25:10 <CakeProphet> dunno if quality of education is doing the same though.
01:25:11 <AnMaster> pikhq, that 1950 SEK was for just the autumn
01:25:15 <AnMaster> it will add up over time
01:25:28 <pikhq> AnMaster: Yes, but that 21 784 is just one year.
01:25:35 <pikhq> *That* adds up over time.
01:25:37 <AnMaster> 3 years for bachelor
01:25:40 <AnMaster> pikhq, wtf
01:25:59 <AnMaster> pikhq, you could presumably resell your old books
01:26:00 <pikhq> I'm citing you rates per year.
01:26:03 <AnMaster> for say, 80% of the cost
01:26:10 <AnMaster> to new students
01:26:12 <pikhq> And a bachelor generally takes 4 years, sometimes more.
01:26:16 <AnMaster> that one everyone will gain
01:26:30 <AnMaster> you will gain some, and so will the new students
01:26:32 <CakeProphet> AnMaster: depends. the bookstores will buy it back for like 20% of the price, which is retarded
01:26:37 <CakeProphet> that is why I always sell my books myself.
01:26:43 <CakeProphet> instead of going through my university's bookstore.
01:26:46 <pikhq> AnMaster: Book publishers like to publish new editions each year and convince professors to require the new edition.
01:26:47 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, yes you could sell your books yourself I said
01:26:56 <AnMaster> pikhq, huh, and do they check that?
01:27:00 <AnMaster> profs I mean
01:27:01 <pikhq> Yes.
01:27:20 <pikhq> There's a few other means to eliminate the used book market.
01:27:42 <AnMaster> mhm
01:27:42 <pikhq> Some books come with a one-person-only key to log onto some website that's used for homework.
01:27:49 <pikhq> Some are switching to being ebooks only.
01:27:57 <AnMaster> ebooks are easy to copy

13:33:55 * ais523 is reading through the Haskell 2010 spec, which was released today
13:42:17 <ais523> also amusing: Haskell has the same LR(infinity) parsing issues as INTERCAL
13:42:43 <ais523> "case x of { (a,_) | let b = not a in b :: Bool -> a }" is the offending statement in Haskell, it seems
13:42:54 <AnMaster> hah
13:43:00 <ais523> (to get the infinite lookahead required, replace a by (a1,a2,a3,a4,a5,a6,...))

13:48:03 <AnMaster> with threads I'm not sure if "scan through spaces to next non-space" is counted as lookahead or not

13:54:41 <Ilari> About that... But lots of those 7000 are in levels that have loads of stuff, and POV-Ray seems to have problems with those.
13:54:41 <nooga> hm
13:54:47 <nooga> awesome
13:55:15 <nooga> i cannot imagine how you actually managed to figure out the geometry from the memdumps
13:55:30 <nooga> btw. guys, where do you take SNS
13:55:40 <nooga> SNES roms from?
13:55:43 <ais523> raytracing Skyroad seems a little ridiculous; what are you using for textures?
13:55:50 <Ilari> I'm seriously thinking the stuff this scene generator outputs hits a bug in POV-Ray.
13:55:56 <ais523> nooga: no discussion of ROMs, that's a rule of pretty much every forum in existence
13:55:59 <ais523> including, IIRC, Freenode
13:56:04 <nooga> ah
13:56:07 <nooga> excuse me
13:56:26 <nooga> there was no question
13:56:26 <Ilari> Fixed colors (from Skyroads palette maps).
13:57:07 <Ilari> nooga: The memdump format was very easy to figure out.
13:57:08 <ais523> a case of, if you're doing raytracing, you don't need textures to look good?
13:57:42 <Ilari> Well, I could make special tiles distinctive later...
13:58:47 <fizzie> POV-Ray has pretty nice procedural textures.

14:00:36 <fizzie> See e.g. http://hof.povray.org/pebbles.html which claims to be "generated entirely using POV code"; I assume that extends to textures too, though of course can't be sure.
14:01:21 -!- Malina has joined.
14:02:47 <Ilari> Hmm... One frame (at high resolution) did 1.5 billion ray tests against boxes. About 1 million succeeded. One would think vista buffers would be good at reducing rays that just can't hit.

14:06:17 <Ilari> Oh, and 1094 infinite objects in scene that only has differences, boxes and cylinders???

14:09:35 <Ilari> Some of the levels seem to contain more finite objects, some less. But in all cases majority seem to be infinite (even through that generator only uses the three types mentioned above).
14:09:42 <fizzie> Some do, yes. I was thinking of something like http://hof.povray.org/images/River.jpg

14:17:41 <ais523> if you want some fun with Haskell, here's a typo I made a while back: [1 2]
14:17:49 <ais523> see if you can figure out what the type of that expression is
14:18:08 <ais523> (I meant [1, 2], which is of type (Num a) => [a], i.e. a list of some numeric type)
14:18:53 <Ilari> One could maybe speed up rendering by pruning invisible objects from scene. Current versions prune stuff behind the viewpoint, but nothing else.
14:20:41 * oerjan guesses Num (a -> b), Num a => [b]
14:20:53 <oerjan> !haskell :t [1 2]
14:20:55 <ais523> oerjan: yep
14:21:09 <ais523> which is really bizarre if translated from Haskell back into English
14:21:22 <ais523> I sort-of want to make a type of kind *->* and class Num now

14:22:18 <oerjan> um yes it is, but it tries both ways

14:24:24 <oerjan> now a value of _type_ a->b might be.

18:49:28 <AnMaster> I just got the idea of combining feather and nomics
18:51:07 <relet> what is feather exactly?
18:52:25 * relet is just writing a system combining jython and nomic. you don't formulate new rules, but you code 'em.
18:55:26 <AnMaster> relet, hard to explain
18:55:48 <AnMaster> it is a language that allows you to modify the syntax retroactively
18:56:08 <AnMaster> no spec or implementation yet, ais523 hasn't got that far with it

19:00:57 <AnMaster> but with nomic it would allow you to change what the rules was before

19:01:50 <AnMaster> Ilari, iirc it is supposed to be "quite certainly" implementable.
19:02:07 <AnMaster> it doesn't do actual time travel but instead reparses or such iirc

19:42:01 <CakeProphet> does zsnes emulate NES as well?
19:44:58 <Slereah> Wasn't there some gadget to play NES game in SNES?
19:45:02 <Slereah> So I'd say maybe
19:45:08 <AnMaster> not perfectly.
19:45:33 <AnMaster> bsnes does it perfectly but has much higher system requirements
19:45:49 -!- BeholdMyGlory has joined.
19:45:49 <AnMaster> zsnes works just fine for most common games. For all the games I tried
19:45:52 <Slereah> It's NES games
19:46:01 <Slereah> High requirements for 90's computers, maybe
19:46:02 <AnMaster> oh wait he said NES not SNES
19:46:14 <AnMaster> I read it as "does zsnes emulate SNES well"
19:46:18 <AnMaster> XD
19:46:34 <AnMaster> and afaik zsnes doesn't NES
19:46:43 <AnMaster> nor does bsnes afaik
19:47:00 <AnMaster> CakeProphet, so try some other one for that, there are NES emulators. Played zelda 1 and zelda 2 in one
19:47:02 <AnMaster> forgot it's name
19:52:47 <fizzie> Fceu's a popular one.
19:52:59 <fizzie> It has some forks too, I think.
19:53:06 <CakeProphet> AnMaster: alright. I'll look around.
19:53:12 <CakeProphet> though I might just get SUper Mario All-Stars
19:53:21 <CakeProphet> instead of SMB3... since it's for SNES and already has SMB3 on it
19:53:50 <fizzie> At least "fceux" seems to exist.
19:54:54 <fizzie> For a currently-Ubuntist like me, fceu has the benefit of being installable from them repositories.
19:57:38 <fizzie> Ilari: The idea of raytracing games seems to be a catchy one; I just wrote a bit of Perl to convert Descent 1 level files into importable .obj: http://zem.fi/~fis/descent.png
19:58:54 <Ilari> I got the idea from one video where Metroid 1 run was placed on top of large map of the whole game (greatly extending the range one can see the map constructs from).
19:59:37 <coppro> doesn't the new Castlevania do that?
20:01:13 <AnMaster> <Ilari> I got the idea from one video where Metroid 1 run was placed on top of large map of the whole game (greatly extending the range one can see the map constructs from).
20:01:14 <AnMaster> wait
20:01:23 <AnMaster> wasn't metroid a side scroller?
20:01:31 <coppro> yes
20:02:05 <AnMaster> how do you raytrace that? It was just sprites from the side
20:02:22 <Ilari> It wasn't raytraced.
20:02:30 <AnMaster> oh I thought you meant it was?
20:02:59 <AnMaster> how to interpret that statement then
20:03:10 <Ilari> Essentially, that video expanded Metroid screen to HD size (without resizing).
20:03:15 <AnMaster> ah
20:03:52 <Ilari> That got me thinkin of all sorts of "alternate" videos of runs.

22:00:05 <cpressey> If I was going to rewrite coreutils... I wouldn't do it in C.
22:00:09 <cpressey> That's just me though.
22:00:25 <pikhq> My goal is to write it in clean C.
22:00:33 <pikhq> Never been done for UNIX! :P
22:02:26 <cpressey> :)
22:03:49 <fizzie> pikhq: Have you tested that decode_chars's num_to_output value-setting with all possible numbers of =s? To me it looks as if (a) the '='-test indices should be 1, 2, 3 instead of 0, 1, 2 (now it tests for s[0] == '=', i.e. a full "====" block) and (b) shouldn't the tests be in the opposite order (now if you have '=' in the last position, it will always set num_to_output to 2).
22:04:18 <fizzie> (Admittedly I'm pretty sleepy and may have misdeduced here.)
22:06:02 <fizzie> Oh, I guess the indices are correct (but setting num_to_output = 0 means it will still output at least one byte, and anyway "====" shouldn't be legal) but I still think the order of testing is not.
22:06:32 <pikhq> The testing order... Is probably not. XD
22:07:42 <pikhq> "====" can happen if there's a premature EOF: the "decode" function just treats that as "Have the rest of the buffer be ='s, output, then return".
22:07:45 -!- CakeProphet has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
22:08:28 <pikhq> Fixed the decode_char testing though.
22:09:30 <fizzie> Okay. I guess "x===" isn't normally legal either, since there's just 6 bits there, not a full character. It should have either "xx==", "xxx=" or "xxxx" leading to 1, 2 or 3 output bytes. But of course if you need to handle up to 4 '=' for other reasons, then it's no problem.
22:10:25 <pikhq> If you hand it invalid input you get very weird output. I think this is fair.
22:11:20 <pikhq> I've done the work of making it robust enough to not crash from it, and I think that's enough. :P

22:19:49 <pikhq> Also: http://sprunge.us/EIIg Mmm, busybox-alike.
22:23:11 <Mathnerd314> pikhq: what if two functions with the same name are defined in two files?
22:24:14 <pikhq> Mathnerd314: Then it breaks hard.
22:24:38 <Mathnerd314> maybe you could use namespaces?
22:24:46 <pikhq> Not in C.
22:24:52 <pikhq> And I refuse to use C++.
22:25:59 <Mathnerd314> hah, I just realized you could use the same trick you use for main()
22:26:22 <Mathnerd314> define them to be program1_func and program2_func
22:26:31 <Mathnerd314> so nvm.
22:26:32 <pikhq> Also possible.
22:27:06 <Mathnerd314> but this is the problem: there is no "cpp cat"
22:27:58 <Mathnerd314> while, in my ultimate language of *doom*, there would be.
22:28:47 <coppro> pikhq: after your admirable effort at coreutils, I have developed a new goal in life

22:29:06 <coppro> to write a single executable that is, simulatenously every tool required by POSIX

22:29:43 <coppro> then I will submit it to dailyWTF and make millions
22:42:47 <Mathnerd314> coppro: GUI won't follow POSIX...

22:50:45 <pikhq> aliseiphone: http://sprunge.us/GjCA So yeah, whaddya think?
22:51:39 <aliseiphone> I always used nesticle for nes games
22:51:59 <aliseiphone> Cursor was a bleeding hand, or was it a testicle?
22:52:04 <aliseiphone> *games.
22:53:32 <aliseiphone> pikhq: Dont align those wrap calls. Also, coreutils are MY job! *huff*
22:53:44 <aliseiphone> fizzie: you look really weird
22:54:06 -!- fungot has quit (*.net *.split).
22:54:15 <cpressey> aliseiphone: I realize making a language which is TC iff Goldbach's conjecture is true, is trivial. The hard part is finding some non-contrived way of doing it. (My latest design is only about 20% of the way there.)
22:54:21 <coppro> pikhq: is it just me, or is the decode table missing some things, like lower case letters?
22:54:24 <aliseiphone> pikhq: Also fuck license headers :|
22:54:53 <pikhq> coppro: Doesn't need to have lower-case letters.
22:55:06 <coppro> I'll take your word for it
22:55:19 <aliseiphone> pikhq: num to output -- the ?: lines
22:55:23 <aliseiphone> That's strchr.

22:56:19 <aliseiphone> Will that ever happen?
22:56:21 <pikhq> ... I don't freaking want a pointer to the first =.

23:05:01 <oerjan> 07:30:43 <cpressey> <ais523> also amusing: Haskell has the same LR(infinity) parsing issues as INTERCAL
23:05:04 <oerjan> 07:30:46 <cpressey> That's just sad.
23:05:37 <oerjan> i thought haskell had a general greedy rule which resolves such things as ais523's case | let example
23:06:34 <oerjan> and haskell 2010 was supposed to resolve the one most insane parsing rule of haskell that interfered with that (operator precedence)
23:07:07 <oerjan> (and which no implementation actually followed to the insane letter)
23:07:32 <cpressey> And I thought Haskell was a kind of lemur found only in Madagascar, prized for its ability to detect tax evaders.
23:07:35 <cpressey> BOY WAS I WRONG
23:07:55 <oerjan> yes. yes that would be monumental wrongness.
23:08:14 <aliseiphone> XD
23:08:20 <olsner> in the history of lemurs, no one has ever been so wrong
23:09:31 <olsner> anyway, LR(Inf) would still be bounded by input size, right?
23:09:48 <oerjan> and lemurs have a long and distinguished history (see: Disney's Dinosaur)
23:10:16 <aliseiphone> olsner: INFINITE INPUT
23:11:20 <aliseiphone> oerjan: you were in my dream (as well as fizzie and oklopol)
23:11:24 <pikhq> aliseiphone: It really amazes me how *awful* most of the C code out there looks.
23:11:41 <oerjan> is LR(Inf) any different from a general unambiguous context-free language...
23:11:42 <pikhq> http://base64.sourceforge.net/b64.c An example.
23:11:42 <aliseiphone> you just yelled something at me from the corridor though, I was talking to oklopol
23:11:56 <aliseiphone> he's a lot more boring in real life
23:12:05 <oerjan> i know all LR(k) for k < inf languages can be restructured into LR(1)
23:12:45 <olsner> imaginary real life, you mean?
23:13:04 <pikhq> Just... Revolting.
23:13:51 <cpressey> Oh yes just terrible.
23:13:58 <oerjan> aliseiphone: i see.
23:13:59 <cpressey> It's not even indented properly.
23:14:33 <aliseiphone> olsner: well... shut up
23:14:37 <olsner> C done right can be quite beautiful actually
23:14:51 <aliseiphone> fizzie does look really fucking weird btw.
23:14:59 <pikhq> olsner: Well aware.
23:16:10 <aliseiphone> not a SINGLE one of you is even SLIGHTLY curious as to the visual horror that is fizzie? sheesh!
23:16:14 <olsner> hard to tell how much of that is just about which whitespace and indentation conventions I'm used to, and how much is actually based on a sense of code quality
23:16:54 <olsner> while( !feof( infile ) ) looks ugly to me, but while (!feof(infile)) looks nice, for example
23:17:58 <pikhq> What looks ugly is while(!feof(f))for(...;!feof(f);...){...;while(!feof(f)) ...;if(!feof(f)) ...;}
