00:24:22 <oerjan> _Madk: he has a really bad connection and keeps reconnecting all the time
00:24:28 <_Madk> I don't do IRC much
00:26:14 <ais523> it's one person using two nicks, due to having a dodgy connection
00:26:30 <ais523> because you can't connect with a nick that's busy timing out
00:26:41 <ais523> so you connect with an alternate nick, and then change back when the original times out

09:45:30 <fizzie> AnMaster: Gah, I just debugged a bug out of cfunge-0.9.0 (at work, used the latest official release, I'm not even sure we have bzr here) -- http://pastebin.com/chmNfELi -- but it seems you already fixed that in rev 842.
09:47:56 <Deewiant> Updating software before debugging it is a good idea :-P
09:49:29 <fizzie> I don't even know where I should point bzr at to get the latest code. Launchpad?
09:53:01 <fizzie> Uhm. I updated to what I got with "bzr branch lp:cfunge", and it's broken in a different way now.
09:54:44 <fizzie> This is what I get now: http://pastebin.com/7bJ69SvM
09:55:05 <fizzie> First there were too many terminating \0s; now there's none.

10:38:48 <Deewiant> My cfunge and ccbi both say "120 0 64 0"
10:40:06 <Deewiant> Which I guess is right
10:40:30 <Deewiant> I think this is cfunge r840
10:48:09 -!- MigoMipo has joined.
10:54:55 <fizzie> Hm. Well, like the paste says, I get "120 64 0 0" from cfunge r849, and "120 0 0 64" from cfunge 0.9.0 (not sure what revision that corresponds to); but "120 0 64 0" from an old cfunge-0.3.3.
10:57:30 <Deewiant> The obvious solution is to use ccbi
11:00:28 <fizzie> The obvious solution would be to not dabble with any silly Funge-98 code but do something more sensible instead.

13:18:57 <Madk> heeey
13:33:47 <fizzie> Madk: Here's a random suggestion: since the $ label = [42] syntax is not so useful -- you get the same with |$label| [42] already -- why not make it work the same way "normal" assemblers do "label: equ 42", that is, directly define the value for the label? Currently it's a bit hard to define named constants there.
13:34:53 -!- ais523 has joined.
13:35:09 <Madk> ok
13:35:15 <Madk> Thanks for the idea
13:36:54 <fizzie> I've also been dabbling with a Funge-98 M-code interpreter. I have a parser that correctly handles the labels and such in the more complicated hello-world example -- http://sprunge.us/EcNY -- but the actual interpreter side is lacking, currently it just dumps out the initial memory contents.
13:37:52 <Madk> cool
13:38:29 <Madk> Well, the syntax for what you described is going to be $meaning:42
13:38:39 <Madk> as opposed to $address=42
13:38:45 <fizzie> Mm'k. That works, too.
13:38:52 <Madk> er [42]
13:38:54 <Madk> it that case
13:39:09 <Madk> that tends to slip my mind :|
13:40:01 <Madk> my parser doesn't check for duplicate labels either
13:40:05 <Madk> maybe it should
13:41:36 <fizzie> I also don't check at the end whether all the referenced labels were actually defined; I think currently any undefined ones will end up having the value -1 when referenced to with |label|.
13:42:03 <Madk> Mine does 0 for undefined labels, but it outputs an error to the console
13:42:18 <Madk> If you don't close a [], a ||, or a // comment, it lets you know
13:42:29 <Madk> and if you call an undefined label it lets you know
13:42:41 <fizzie> Befunge is funny; I wrote that thing not more than a moment ago, and it's already starting to resemble a meaningless jumble of characters unless I try to focus.
13:42:59 <Madk> and if you attempt to write program memory to an address greater than the array size, it wraps around to the beginning but it still lets you know
13:43:11 <Madk> heh
13:43:23 <Madk> that's always fun :P
13:43:53 <fizzie> I mean, to pick a random line: "Vv#G70_v#+`0'g70`g700' +g2bg2a P70Lg2bG1g2a P70 <"
13:43:56 <fizzie> It's worse than Perl!
13:44:00 <Madk> You know the saying that if you look at code you wrote a month ago it'll be like it was written by someone else?

13:52:36 <Madk> fizzie: When the interpreter has finished parsing and storing the code in memory, it outputs it to a file with all comments removed before it actally runs it. Are you planning on implementing anything similar?
13:53:35 <Madk> It does also remove labels and replaces them with proper numbers
13:53:57 <fizzie> Well, I guess I could, reasonably easily.
13:54:53 <Madk> the source is in the interpreter download, so if you want to make sure you don't miss anything, you may want to check out the output function in the shared source file
13:55:58 <fizzie> I'll probably worry about compliance after I get a hello-world running.
13:56:04 <Madk> ok :P

14:34:43 -!- yiyus_ has joined.
14:35:24 <fizzie> Um. The spec in the wiki has two definitions for backslash: "Handle the string in memory by -- getting it from input" and "Copy the value in the A register into both B and C".
14:35:34 <Madk> oops
14:35:41 <Madk> umm
14:36:08 <Madk> how about changing that second thing to "Y"
14:37:35 <fizzie> Works for me.
14:37:46 <Madk> also, just noticed
14:37:56 <Madk> the definition for @ and 0 isn't entirely accurate
14:38:02 <Madk> they add it to the end of the memory string
14:38:10 <Madk> they don't actually put it in the console
14:40:47 <Madk> fizzie: just a heads-up, I think my label code has contracted a bug. Once it's fixed or I find out I just did something stupid in my m-code, I'll be uiploading the new interpreter with the Y command and the $label:[42] stuff

14:45:08 <Madk> sweet
14:45:29 <fizzie> http://sprunge.us/fejI
14:45:31 <Madk> see if the quine works
14:45:39 <fizzie> Probably has several buggeries left, I'd presume.
14:45:54 <fizzie> (Also didn't do file IO or the seven more complicated arithmetical ops yet.)
14:46:47 <Madk> You didn't do &. is this intentional? It's only a logical and
14:47:23 <Madk> You haven't done D (delay by # of ms)
14:47:42 <Madk> X is xor
14:47:44 <fizzie> I don't think I can do it very well in Funge-98 without some help from the interpreter.
14:47:51 <Madk> logical, though
14:47:53 <ais523> b98 doesn't have a delay command naturally, does it?
14:47:55 <fizzie> Oh, I misread that those were bitwise ops, which are a bit tricky.
14:48:09 <ais523> in fact, I'm not even sure I know of a delay fingerprint
14:48:24 <Madk> Could you make a loop that takes appx. one ms?
14:48:34 <Madk> iterate the number of times?
14:48:44 <fizzie> ais523: I'm not sure of one either. SGNE has a sleep command, but it has a granularity of seconds.
14:48:48 <Madk> or more and divide the number by the time
14:49:16 <Madk> it's not important, I mainly put it there to help debug my scripts
14:49:37 <fizzie> The HRTI fingerprint has a high-resolution timer, I could do a loop with that.

14:53:18 <fizzie> I'll add those logical things. The quine doesn't work since I don't clear the memory (so there's leftover crud because of the $35 jump), and anyway it'd just complain about unknown opcode "0"; should undefined ones be nops instead?
14:53:51 <Madk> probably
14:54:08 <Madk> It's supposed to skip over things that aren't commands
14:54:29 <AnMaster> fizzie, hm I remember that bug. Thanks for writing a regression test case ;P
14:55:10 <Madk> also, a comment-stripped file would give it grief since it usually counts on nops being initialized as 0
14:58:50 <Madk> fizzie: right now, according to the interpreter, the first slot in string memory when using stuff like ^ is 1, not 0. I was going to change that, but haven't got around to it yet
14:59:07 <AnMaster> fizzie, btw I seem to be on rev 849 locally
14:59:08 <Madk> I suppose I'll just do that not, it'll only take a second
14:59:31 <AnMaster> let me check it
14:59:31 <fizzie> Madk: I have most of the memory set to 32, actually, since it's the funge-space default value. I could clean a region, I guess; but I don't do any modulo arithmetics on addresses, and I can't really clean the whole fungespace row to 0. (And manually handling an offset of 32 whenever memory is being read/written isn't very much fun either.)
15:00:48 <fizzie> Ut-oh, the post office's having some silly summer schedules and closes already in an hour; and it'll take me half an hour to get there from work. Away for now, therefore.
15:01:18 <Madk> 32 can just be seen as a nop without too much issue
15:01:33 <Madk> I would expect, at least
15:01:35 <AnMaster> fizzie, please repaste that with a working pastebin, the raw link download is a html with a <pre>
15:01:39 <AnMaster> so wget doesn't work
15:01:51 <Madk> it wouldn't be a 0, but it'd still work most of the time
15:02:00 <fizzie> AnMaster: It's not *that* long, you know.
15:02:26 <AnMaster> hm
15:02:32 <AnMaster> fizzie, well use a better one in the future
15:02:38 <fizzie> And there's a "download" link in addition to the "raw" link.
15:03:05 <AnMaster> ah
15:03:08 <AnMaster> that works indeed
15:03:44 <AnMaster> fizzie, so you say it should output 120 0 64 0 ?
15:04:22 <AnMaster> fizzie, and you said some older version did that? Do you happen to know which revision works?
15:04:34 <AnMaster> 0.9.0 781
15:04:38 <AnMaster> from: bzr tags
15:04:40 <fizzie> Deewiant said his works.
15:04:52 <fizzie> And he claimed it was r840.
15:05:00 <AnMaster> okay *goes to check*
15:05:19 <Madk> why won't the beer work ._.
15:05:34 <Madk> it's not starting looking at the string in the right place
15:06:44 <AnMaster> it works indeed
15:07:40 <Madk> for one label it starts reading before the string
15:07:46 <Madk> for the other two it starts reading after
15:08:10 <AnMaster> okay bisecting found r842 as the buggy one
15:08:43 <AnMaster> iirc that fixed another bug though
15:11:28 <Madk> hoopla
15:11:45 <Madk> why does it think my label is at 32
15:12:13 <Madk> oh, no it doesn't
15:12:15 <Madk> Oooooh
15:12:21 <Madk> I think I know what's going on now
15:12:46 <Madk> eh
15:13:14 <Madk> hurrah!
15:13:17 <Madk> ok
15:13:17 <AnMaster> fizzie, strangely enough G doesn't push the ending \0 it seems.
15:13:22 <Madk> almost there

15:13:31 <Sgeo> I'm suffering from the effects of C# poisoning
15:13:44 <Sgeo> I think that XML is a reasonable, human-readable way to handle something
15:16:06 <Madk> gah, now something else isn't working .-.
15:17:35 <Madk> ok, that's a bit better
15:21:54 <AnMaster> fizzie, here we go *pushes fix*
15:22:11 <AnMaster> fizzie, fix pushed, due to server side caching it may take a few minutes to update on launchpad
15:22:31 <AnMaster> was a two char fix
15:22:37 * Sgeo wonders if he should attempt to learn OCaml
15:24:02 <ais523> Sgeo: do it
15:24:10 <ais523> it ought to be better-known than it is
15:24:23 <ais523> ignore the OO stuff in it, though; as far as I know, nobody uses it
15:24:40 <AnMaster> ais523, why not go for standard ML then?
15:24:50 <Sgeo> ...so, just use it as a functional language? Why not just stick with Haskell then?
15:24:57 <ais523> OCaml's more used in industry, IIRC
15:25:00 <ais523> Sgeo: a functional/imperative language
15:25:20 <Sgeo> hmm
15:25:20 <ais523> Haskell is rather clunky for imperative programming, OCaml combines it pretty seamlessly with the functional stuff

16:20:52 <Gregor> Y'know, if you just wrote XHTML in the first place, no translation would be necessary :P
16:20:56 <AnMaster> cpressey, custom xml *may* be slightly less painful to maintain that a lot of separate html pages. Since the xsl handles the fluff. At least that is my experience from working with some such sites (none of which I initially designed, just maintained)
16:21:15 <AnMaster> of course, fixing or extending the xsl file tends to be extremely painful
16:21:38 <cpressey> Gregor: My bad, I meant to say "transformed to XHTML".
16:21:50 <AnMaster> but if it works it is less irritating than 20 separate xhtml pages
16:22:05 <AnMaster> cpressey, of course it would still be saner to just switch to gopher
16:22:20 <cpressey> AnMaster: I find it is a bit less painful. It's easier to get the end result consistent and correct.

16:22:49 <cpressey> AnMaster: I should figure out a way to run my old BBS software over a telnet server
16:23:14 <cpressey> It was written in Pascal for the Amiga 500. Tasty.
16:23:23 <Gregor> And it continues: about this you guys, a language engine with a bunch of parsers that dump out XML ASTs, then everything else implemented as XSL! You could even have XSL reversers that convert low-level ASTs into C!
16:24:21 <cpressey> Gregor: I was totally gonna write that
16:24:27 <Gregor> You would have an XSL file that turns classes into structs and calls, and an XSL file that turns structs into pointers and offsets, and an XSL file that turns this XML AST with pointers and offsets into assembly!
16:24:28 <pikhq> Gregor: Too much crack man.
16:24:47 <cpressey> Gregor: Uh - where did you find this?
16:24:55 <Gregor> IN MY BRAIN
16:26:36 <cpressey> Take out all the XSL stuff, and introduce XML only as a stopgap measure (it's an expedient interchange format that can hold ASTs, *only*), and I was totally gonna write that. Like Batchelder's 'cog' but with EBNF.
16:27:09 <cpressey> Meanwhile pikhq has grapheme-bombed my IRC client. Nice.
16:27:35 <cpressey> It looked OK, until the screen scrolled. Then, barf all over.

16:28:35 <AnMaster> <cpressey> AnMaster: I find it is a bit less painful. It's easier to get the end result consistent and correct. <-- yes, but making the xsl in the first place, or just modifying it... tends to be painful
16:28:49 <AnMaster> I wouldn't bother with it for less than, say, 10 pages
16:28:56 <cpressey> AnMaster: Granted. XSL is pain.

16:50:51 <pikhq> No.
16:50:54 <AnMaster> ah
16:51:17 <cpressey> That's because English is inconsistency incarnate.
16:51:58 <AnMaster> what does incarnated mean then? my spell checking seems to accept both with and without the last letter
16:52:19 <cpressey> "Incarnate" is both adjective and verb.
16:52:40 <AnMaster> ah right. incarnated would be past tense of the verb
16:52:50 <AnMaster> right?
16:53:02 <pikhq> Also, the set phrase is "x incarnate".
16:53:07 <AnMaster> but yes it is inconsistent. A favourite example of mine is that inflammable ought to mean not flammable...
16:53:08 <cpressey> Yes, but since it means just about the same thing as the adjective, no one uses it.
16:54:04 <pikhq> AnMaster: Sure it sure. It is capable of being inflammed.
16:54:05 <pikhq> :)
16:54:20 <AnMaster> pikhq, my client rendered that stuff on line line. Font dejavu sans mono at 9pt. Which doesn't really look good for such stuff. Not at 96 DPI or whatever this is anyway.
16:54:38 <AnMaster> s/line/one/
16:54:45 <AnMaster> no clue how that typo happened
16:55:25 <pikhq> Mmm.
16:55:58 <AnMaster> it works well for the languages I can actually speak though ;P
16:56:16 <pikhq> :P
16:56:31 <pikhq> DejaVu doesn't have Japanese characters in it.
16:57:21 <AnMaster> pikhq, hm so system is using some other font then
16:57:31 <AnMaster> explains why those symbols look blurry
16:57:31 <pikhq> Yes.
16:57:55 <AnMaster> pikhq, that !looks like wide-char ! ?
16:57:58 <pikhq> Yeah, most Japanese fonts are pain and agony on a screen.
16:58:04 <pikhq> It is wide-char !.
16:58:04 <AnMaster> argh what happened with spacing there
16:58:24 <AnMaster> pikhq, strangely copy-and-paste renders it differently
16:58:26 <AnMaster> I wonder why
16:58:36 <AnMaster> it looked kind of bold in your original line
16:58:42 <AnMaster> but now it looks like a normal !

16:58:55 <pikhq> Don’t you love wide characters?
16:59:05 <AnMaster> I hate them
16:59:22 <AnMaster> besides they render strangely here.
16:59:25 <AnMaster> Blurry
16:59:36 <pikhq> アバウット アズ ウィールド アズ スィン カタカナ。
16:59:45 <pikhq> (about as weird as thin katakana)
16:59:52 <AnMaster> that looks okay to me
17:00:30 <pikhq> AnMaster: If you had a better font it'd render less weirdly. Here, the wide Latin glyphs render as Verdana with bizarre spacing.
17:00:49 <AnMaster> I have no clue what it renders as
17:00:58 <pikhq> (I use the Meiryo font for Japanese, and that uses Verdana's glyphs for Latin.)
17:01:15 <AnMaster> pikhq, you use non-monospace on irc? *shudder*
17:01:26 <pikhq> AnMaster: No, it's monospace on IRC.
17:01:39 <AnMaster> verdana isn't monospace..
17:02:03 <pikhq> When stuck into Meiryo it is.
17:02:15 <pikhq> Japanese fonts are inherently monospace.
17:02:36 <AnMaster> hm
17:03:01 <pikhq> Well, more like bispace. They have a distinction between "half-width" and "full-width" characters.
17:03:32 <pikhq> Normal Latin text is half-width, the half-width katakana are half-width, everything else if full-width.
17:03:40 <myndzi\> umop what about upside down wide characters?
17:03:44 <myndzi\> whoops !

17:03:56 <myndzi> hehe
17:03:57 <pikhq> Hah.
17:04:10 <myndzi> also yeah, they aren't so much "wide" as they are monospaced
17:04:23 <myndzi> so i guess if you were ircing with Arial they'd look wide
17:04:26 <AnMaster> unicode has that?
17:04:27 <AnMaster> wtf
17:04:30 <myndzi> but they are the same width as anything else to me, or most people
17:04:40 <myndzi> AnMaster: lol, not really
17:04:47 <pikhq> myndzi: On a terminal, they take up *two* characters' space.
17:04:51 <myndzi> the ones that are natural characters, reversed, like p/d
17:04:54 <AnMaster> strangely enough:
17:04:56 <AnMaster> <myndzi\> umop what about upside down wide characters?

17:04:59 <AnMaster> <myndzi\> ¿ѕɹəʇɔɐɹɐɥɔ əpɪʍ uʍоp əpɪѕdn ʇnоqɐ ʇɐɥʍ
17:05:00 <myndzi> i used the mono width ones for because they didn't line up
17:05:04 <AnMaster> renders exactly as wide here
17:05:21 <myndzi> i mean, the upside-down chars i picked from all over the tables didn't line up with the "regular" letters
17:05:22 <myndzi> at least for me
17:05:27 <AnMaster> indicating that the second line contains something that breaks the normal monospacing of the font I use for irc
17:05:32 <myndzi> but the japanese mono-width ones did
17:06:15 <myndzi> yeah, my alias is called umop ;p i forgot the /
17:06:21 <ais523> myndzi: for me, the mono-widths look out of place, the upside-downs work fine
17:06:31 <AnMaster> myndzi, well they don't line up with other chars properly since otherwise those two lines I copied wouldn't be exactly as long
17:06:33 <myndzi> ais523: yeah, but i don't really care about for you ;D
17:06:41 <myndzi> it would annoy the crap out of me if they looked weird on my screen
17:06:42 <myndzi> haha
17:06:45 <AnMaster> the ? lines up perfectly with ʍ
17:07:03 <myndzi> it's a definite problem with font linking
17:07:09 <myndzi> i have no idea what fonts it's pulling from
17:07:12 <AnMaster> well actually, it seems off by 2 pixels
17:07:13 <AnMaster> when I check
17:07:14 <myndzi> same thing with my maze alias
17:07:18 <AnMaster> hm
17:07:21 <myndzi> sometimes the chars work properly and sometimes not
17:07:26 <myndzi> depending on which fonts are cached, i think
17:07:33 <AnMaster> try gucharmap, if you right click the symbol it shows witch font it fetches it from
17:07:49 <AnMaster> apt-get or whatever package manage you use
17:08:01 <myndzi> my package manager is windows ;p
17:08:02 <AnMaster> iirc it is part of gnome, so your distro probably have a package for it
17:08:13 <myndzi> i must be way out of place here haha

17:16:59 <ais523> I wouldn't be surprised if it was more than one
17:22:37 <AnMaster> hm *ponders the effect of swapping every occurrence of the string "micro" with "macro" and vice verse*
17:22:54 <AnMaster> I guess Macrosoft Office would warn when opening files containing micros
17:23:20 <AnMaster> and you would use a macrowave oven to heat your food

19:22:31 <oerjan> ais523: BRILLIANT
19:23:02 <ais523> I think my favourite bothack was when I rigged thutubot to pass +haskell commands to lambdabot and report the result
19:23:11 <ais523> people here were wondering htf I managed to implement Haskell in Thutu
19:23:59 <oerjan> ais523: typing with type inference _and_ OO subtyping is _hard_ (well, technically unsolvable). in fact i think ocaml does some cheating.

20:08:35 <cpressey> In every job I've had since leaving my hometown, at least 70% of the effort has been grappling with the conceptual model of the product. It is never documented and it is always, for lack of a better term, fucked.
20:08:52 <HackEgo> No output.
20:09:08 <cpressey> Thank you, HackEgo. I knew you'd understand.
20:09:44 <CakeProphet> cpressey: you just never noticed the ConceptualModelManager. You have to set the Product class for it.
20:10:16 <oerjan> well to find the ConceptualModelMangager you'll need to first find the ConceptualModelManagerFactory, no?
20:11:07 <CakeProphet> sometimes.
20:13:39 <Madk> CakeProphet: Check out "Grin" on the wiki :D
20:15:28 <cpressey> "Agile" et al compound the problem by dismissing the importance of even *having* an overarching conceptual model. Any "story" which doesn't fit in a "sprint" is split up -- dissociated, disconnected, incoherent.
20:15:31 <cpressey> Pisses me off.
20:19:49 <cpressey> But what really freaks me out is how many developers don't even seem to notice.
20:21:14 <cpressey> Have they given up? Or are they somehow intellectually incapable of seeing forests -- their world consisting only of trees?

20:49:00 <CakeProphet> just been reading lots of philosophy. "Core Questions in Philosophy" by Elliot Sober
20:49:18 <CakeProphet> college textbook.
20:49:32 <cpressey> I been reading Also Sprach Zarathustra. Neitzsche's such a nut!
20:50:41 <CakeProphet> I haven't technically been reading it since I've been so busy, but I'm in the middle of the Difference Engine. Some "steampunk" fiction. Actually, /the/ steampunk novel.
20:52:18 <oerjan> he cannot be a real philosopher, everyone knows they're never sober

20:55:19 <Sgeo> So, who wants to hear about Activeworlds's nutty coordinate system?
20:55:39 <CakeProphet> me
20:55:49 <CakeProphet> I've never quite understood the purpose of a coordinate system in a text-based world.
20:56:03 <Sgeo> Activeworlds is not a text-based world.
20:56:50 <Sgeo> But here goes. X, Y, and Z. X is West/East, Y is up/down, Z is North/South
20:57:00 <Sgeo> Not so bad
20:57:10 <Sgeo> But positive X is west, negative X is east
20:57:18 <Sgeo> Which is a nuisance, but it gets worse.
20:58:12 <Sgeo> Rotation is in terms of tenths of degree. 0 is NORTH (Z) and goes counterclockwise, which would make sense if X behaved normally, but...
20:58:34 <Sgeo> Um, that's pretty much it
20:58:51 <Madk> auuugh
20:58:59 <cpressey> There is a shmoo at (0, 0.00001, 3.6172E19)!
20:59:00 <Madk> why must the juggler sequence round down
21:00:37 -!- coppro has quit (*.net *.split).
21:00:40 -!- fungot has quit (*.net *.split).
21:00:48 <oerjan> well balls cannot fall up, can they.
21:01:31 <oerjan> now if you were juggling helium balloons...
21:04:18 <oerjan> "Harry J. Smith has determined that the juggler sequence starting at a0 = 48443 reaches a maximum value at a60 with 972,463 digits, before reaching 1 at a157."
21:04:30 <oerjan> that sounds even wilder than the collatz sequence
21:04:36 <Madk> yes
21:04:56 <Madk> and getting a number to round down in Grin is not a particularly easy task
21:06:27 <oerjan> i'd think with those number sizes you'd need a good bignum library to get enough accuracy...
21:07:13 <Madk> My Grin interpreter does 64 bit floating points
21:07:41 <Madk> it's not infinite or anything but as long as you don't do something horrific it'll be fine
21:07:53 <oerjan> that's not going to work for that 48443 sequence, at all.
21:08:01 <Madk> probably not :P
21:09:11 <oerjan> not that you'd expect it to. even languages with big ints usually don't have big floats i think, at least by default
21:09:44 <cpressey> Big... float
21:10:03 <oerjan> or computable reals
21:10:05 <Madk> HUUUARRGH
21:10:10 <Madk> ahem
21:10:19 <Madk> it stll doesn't work
21:10:34 <cpressey> Big rats probably more common than big floats.
21:10:40 <cpressey> Unless I'm outta touch.

21:13:59 <oerjan> sounds like some pirate or robinson crusoe character
21:18:03 <Madk> well
21:18:07 <Madk> it rounds correctly
21:18:21 <Madk> and it does the sequence otherwise correctly
21:18:30 <Madk> but they don't work together correctly.
21:18:36 <Madk> auuugh
21:23:42 <oerjan> clearly your register is leaking
21:24:30 <Madk> this makes no sense ;(
21:25:04 <Madk> somewhere between the last symbol of the rounding part and the first symbol of the not-rounding part, the register is becoming 0
21:25:24 <Madk> and both of those symbols do nothing except move the memory cell pointer
21:30:14 <Madk> AHAHAHA
21:30:16 <Madk> IT WORKS
21:30:21 <Madk> I PWNED IT
21:30:27 <Madk> wait
21:30:47 <oerjan> you're supposed to say "NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW"
21:30:55 <Madk> 2.000 does not round down to 1.000
21:31:25 <Madk> crap
21:31:29 <Madk> something's still broken
21:34:49 <Madk> ok, the rounding works lovely now, but it's always telling me it only took 1 step
21:34:53 <augur> hmm
21:34:54 <augur> interesting
21:34:57 <Madk> hoefully that's not difficult to fix
21:35:02 <augur> simcity was (is?) based off of CAs
21:35:16 <Madk> that is interesting
21:37:20 <coppro> CAs?

21:37:31 <coppro> ah
21:37:33 <coppro> neat

21:37:53 <coppro> or California. or Canada

21:41:07 <oerjan> it's a little known secret that those things are all cellular automata

21:58:24 <Madk> 99 bottles maybe
22:10:47 <fizzie> For some reason or another, I threw together *another* m-code interp. (It's equally incomplete as the first one, though.)
22:10:56 <Madk> in what? :P
22:11:09 <coppro> pikhq: wfm
22:11:15 <fizzie> Lovingly handcrafted x86-64 asm, this time: http://git.zem.fi/misc/blob/HEAD:/m-code/interp.asm
22:11:53 <Madk> that is awesome :D
22:11:57 <coppro> although my terminal emulator can't seem to handle it correctly
22:12:10 <coppro> oh wait
22:12:24 <coppro> yeah, it's because it's KDE, which uses UTF-16 internally, and is generally broken
22:12:30 <Madk> I'll be back in just a bit
22:12:32 -!- Madk has quit (Quit: Leaving).
22:13:20 <pikhq> coppro: UTF-16 is perfectly fine.
22:13:29 <pikhq> Presumably, KDE is actually using UCS-2 though.
22:13:32 <pikhq> Which is borken
22:13:49 <coppro> pikhq: nah, it's more that it gets confused when it uses a non-BMP character because it takes two bytes
22:13:55 <coppro> it renders correctly
22:14:01 <coppro> UTF-16 itself, of course, is fine
22:14:04 <pikhq> That's borken.
22:14:31 <pikhq> Even more borken when you consider that there is not a one-to-one mapping between glyphs and codepoints.
22:14:55 <coppro> yes
22:14:59 <coppro> it seems to handle that normally fine
22:15:11 <pikhq> How do people fail so much at Unicode?
22:15:28 <coppro> no clue
22:15:53 <cpressey> In Soviet Russia, Unicode fails at YOU!
22:16:30 <coppro> I completely agree with you about it
22:16:50 <coppro> it should not be all that difficult to make it so that backspace after 𝓜 deletes the character, like in Firefox
22:17:33 <pikhq> Darnit, text should *just plain work*.
22:29:10 <Sgeo> pikhq, want to help test my game?
22:29:15 <Sgeo> I'm scared of unicode issues
22:29:31 <Sgeo> We're using a 4.x SDK for AW, but Unicode support was added in 5.0
22:30:11 <Sgeo> Accented os seem to work, but I'm not sure that it's enough. AW itself doesn't seem to support a lot of Unicode stuff, and that's out of my control
22:30:18 <Sgeo> Hm, I should try chatting though
22:32:24 <Sgeo> Pasting in weird characters fails just as badly for AW as it does for the bot
