00:02:16 <alise> I guess I'm 15 now, huh.
00:03:29 <Vorpal> alise, oh?
00:03:37 <Vorpal> alise, much nostalgia yet?
00:03:46 <Vorpal> or I guess that will take a few more years
00:05:00 <Phantom_Hoover_> Why, when I was your age....
00:05:09 <Vorpal> XD
00:05:26 <alise> Vorpal: I've had nostalgia since I was, what, 10.
00:05:28 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, wait, you are younger than me
00:05:33 <alise> Mostly for things I /wasn't alive for/.
00:05:37 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, AGEIST
00:05:40 <alise> Vorpal: Yes, but when Phantom_Hoover_'s older than you, he'll KICK YOUR ASS
00:05:41 <Vorpal> XD
00:05:58 * Phantom_Hoover_ fires Vorpal off at 0.9c.
00:06:08 <Vorpal> alise, hm... relativity right?
00:06:13 <alise> No.
00:06:17 <alise> See, when Phantom_Hoover_ grows up, he'll be older than you.
00:06:20 <alise> Then he'll kick your ass.
00:06:38 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, I'll need to catch him first.
00:06:44 <Vorpal> alise, you forgot I age too, so this only works by relativity
00:06:52 <Phantom_Hoover_> Vorpal, hence the 0.9c.
00:07:07 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover_, yes but I was writing my line while you said that
00:07:30 <Vorpal> didn't see it until after
00:07:47 -!- sebbu has joined.
00:07:51 <alise> <Vorpal> alise, you forgot I age too, so this only works by relativity
00:07:53 * Phantom_Hoover_ wonders about ways to get Vorpal to 0.9c.
00:08:00 <alise> I say, I say, that's a joke, son.
00:08:24 <Phantom_Hoover_> alise, yes, his sense of humour goes through nonexistent and approaches existence from the other side.
00:08:27 <Vorpal> alise, yes but #esoteric is all about taking jokes seriously, iirc ais said so
00:08:32 <Vorpal> and he is an AUTHORITY
00:08:35 <Vorpal> on many things
00:08:45 <alise> that wasn't meant as a defence of you, dude.
00:08:50 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: But only approaches.
00:08:54 <Phantom_Hoover_> I could but him in a giant cannon, I suppose.
00:09:10 <Phantom_Hoover_> But he might have no ass to kick when I slowed him down.
00:09:12 <Vorpal> alise, maybe, but I can use it as one
00:09:14 <alise> but is a verb now
00:09:54 <Phantom_Hoover_> I could put him in a Buissard ramjet and fire it somewhere, but that'd take too long to slow down.
00:10:08 <Phantom_Hoover_> And I don't have a Buissard ramjet handy.
00:10:33 <alise> Does he actually have to get back?
00:10:40 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, obviously.
00:10:47 <Phantom_Hoover_> How else will I kick his ass?
00:11:21 -!- sebbu2 has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds).
00:11:34 <alise> Kick a piece of air. One day, the particles will reach him, and kick his ass.
00:11:40 <alise> Plus, we can get rid of him!
00:11:50 <Phantom_Hoover_> Yeah, but I won't be older than him!
00:11:56 <Phantom_Hoover_> That's the whole POINT.
00:12:09 <Vorpal> alternative: hire Chuck Norris. Except chuck Norris can't be hired for money.
00:12:13 <Vorpal> or something
00:12:29 <alise> Chuck Norris is a fuckwit.
00:12:34 <Vorpal> alise, true
00:12:39 <Phantom_Hoover_> Chuck Norris roundhouse kicking you in the face would send you back in time.
00:12:44 <alise> Seen that video where he talks about bible-based education shit?
00:12:45 <alise> Ha.
00:12:57 <Vorpal> btw, rule 34 on Chuck Norris.
00:13:09 <alise> no!
00:13:10 <alise> hell no.
00:13:18 <Phantom_Hoover_> Your Feynman diagram would be in the shape of a cross.
00:13:25 <Vorpal> hm on second thought, no indeed
00:13:44 <Vorpal> okay then... rule 34 on Feynman diagrams and/or Feynman?
00:13:46 <Vorpal> augh
00:14:00 <alise> i'd totally go gay for feynman

00:14:16 <alise> the world is not evil enough to create it
00:14:31 <Phantom_Hoover_> Yeah, but you'd need Chuck Norris to roundhouse kick you in the face to send you back in time to see him.
00:15:02 <Phantom_Hoover_> And then he would have to roundhouse kick you in the face in the past, as well, to make your go forward/
00:16:32 <Phantom_Hoover_> At which point you'd look like you could be spread on toast.
00:16:39 <alise> Sgeo: dreamviews is so boring
00:16:48 <alise> i like ld4all, it's fun just separating the legitimate, useful content from the mystical crap
00:16:54 <alise> gotta have some entertainment right?
00:17:03 <alise> their website design used to be hilarious, you had to hover over an arrow picture to scroll
00:17:36 <alise> http://www.ld4all.com/guide.html still does! but you can scroll manually it seems
00:17:44 <Vorpal> alise, hah
00:17:57 <alise> and it isn't hovering, it's clicking and holding
00:18:07 <Vorpal> alise, is safe search off?
00:18:10 <Phantom_Hoover_> Looks disturbingly new age...
00:18:11 <Vorpal> when googling that
00:18:39 <alise> Vorpal: yes
00:19:01 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: there's one or two new agey forums and some of the members are kooky like that but the actual site is useful :P
00:19:10 <alise> and the forums are/were the biggest lucid dreaming forum when i knew them
00:19:18 <alise> but yeah, it does have a tinge of that.

02:08:22 <Vorpal> XD
02:09:02 <alise> A true milestone for humanity.
02:09:52 <alise> speaking of implementations, someone still ought to write a http://esolangs.org/wiki/Redivider compiler
02:09:56 <alise> bonus points if you compile the regexp to an automaton
02:10:34 <zzo38> The "esolangs.org" domain does not keep the login cookies?
02:10:52 <alise> It's the "official" one.
02:10:59 <alise> The voxelperfect alias is just the server, methinks.
02:11:07 <alise> Log in to esolangs.org and it'll work.
02:12:33 <zzo38> alise: It doesn't work when I try. When I do that, it redirects to the other domain and sets the cookie there anyways, so you cannot be logged in to "esolangs.org" domain unless you copy the cookie using a cookie management function.
02:13:02 <alise> Your browser is borken.
02:13:17 <alise> I just did it; not a single redirection.
02:15:32 <coppro> oh gawd the slowness pains
02:15:43 <alise> coppro: ?
02:15:52 <coppro> alise: uploading my mail to the new server
02:16:03 <zzo38> If you have TeX, try the Deadfish TeX interpreter, and figure out how it works (if you know how to use TeX, you will probably be able to figure it out easily)

02:16:42 <cpressey> Yes, you should totally just store it locally.

02:21:32 <zzo38> Can we make a INTERCAL and Brainfuck combined?
02:21:56 <alise> No.
02:23:00 <coppro> yeees
02:23:05 <olsner> why dilute intercal with something more sane?
02:23:21 <alise> coppro: do not say yes

02:23:48 <coppro> apparently my email upload should be done by 4PM tomorrow
02:25:02 <zzo38> cpressey: Not exactly what I meant, but I guess that is one way, to just put INTERCAL commands a brainfuck commands can be used together in one program
02:26:18 <zzo38> And then you can also combine codes of many other program languages, too
02:28:25 * alise wonders whether the fundamental features of an irc.IRCClient are its user credentials, or the server it's connecting to
02:29:00 <zzo38> alise: ?
02:29:12 <alise> zzo38: stuff
02:29:39 <zzo38> I think the fundamental feature is connecting to the IRC server?
02:29:46 -!- Zuu has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
02:30:07 <alise> i mean what should be in the constructor vs arguments to connect() :P
02:30:22 <zzo38> alise: What program language are you using?
02:30:53 <zzo38> I think it makes sense this way: connect(host,port[,nick,user,password,real])
02:30:54 <alise> Python, it sucks but makes this easy enough.
02:31:04 -!- Zuu has joined.
02:31:05 -!- Zuu has quit (Changing host).
02:31:05 -!- Zuu has joined.
02:31:06 <alise> zzo38: so you think it should just be "client = IRCClient()", with no arguments?
02:31:07 <alise> hm.
02:31:31 <zzo38> alise: O, you mean when creating the object.
02:31:42 <alise> right
02:31:57 <alise> e.g. client = IRCConnect(nick, user, pass, real); client.connect(host, port)
02:31:58 <alise> vs
02:32:00 <alise> erm
02:32:06 <alise> e.g. client = IRCClient(nick, user, pass, real); client.connect(host, port)
02:32:06 <alise> vs
02:32:08 <zzo38> I suppose you can have the connect() function return itself so that you can do: IRCClient().connect(host,port)
02:32:11 <alise> client = IRCClient(host, port)
02:32:14 <alise> client.connect(nick, user, pass, real)
02:32:34 <zzo38> (I mean, connect() returns the IRCClient object)
02:33:29 <alise> hmm
02:33:31 <zzo38> So if you omit the nick,user,password,real, then it will not login, it will only connect and then you have to send the login command.
02:33:55 <zzo38> Actually better perhaps is to put password at the end, so that it can be omitted even if you do put in nick,user,real?
02:33:57 <alise> zzo38: it'll always take those, because it'll handle communicating with a nickname service thingybob to kick off any clients that may be using the name
02:34:07 <alise> (since the rest of my code is too lazy to handle that)

02:47:22 <alise> how hopelessly vague
02:48:01 <zzo38> Maybe there are other parameters I can also add on to fix it more

02:55:40 <zzo38> alise: It turns off autocorrect
02:57:07 <alise> zzo38: Which is not neccessarily fixing.
02:58:04 <zzo38> It fixes Google partially
02:58:14 <alise> zzo38: Some of us like autocorrect.
02:58:22 <alise> Calling it a "fix" is a bit presumptious...
02:58:45 <coppro> does it still offer fixes?

03:02:23 <myndzi\> lost? oh noes :(
03:03:06 -!- myndzi\ has changed nick to myndzi.
03:03:24 <zzo38> (There are other clones of ZZT as well, but mine is different than the other clones, it is intended to be closer to the original, as well as being a full document about everything in ZZT.
03:03:26 <zzo38> )
03:04:09 <alise> ZZT is still for sale through mail order, according to Sweeney in a Gamasutra interview[3].
03:04:29 <myndzi> but not the source code (?)
03:04:35 <alise> yeah, presumably

03:05:54 <zzo38> myndzi: And apparently they lost the source-codes. It was originally written in Turbo Pascal. Mine is C. But I try to make it accurate as possible, I even downloaded a Turbo Pascal reference manual for this purpose!
03:06:15 <alise> why?
03:06:47 <zzo38> alise: What are you refering to?
03:06:53 <alise> why get a turbo pascal manual?
03:07:49 <zzo38> For maximum accuracy.
03:07:58 <alise> accuracy to what/

03:08:05 <alise> if you don't have the source how can that help

03:08:27 <alise> >_<
03:10:39 <olsner> or just to get in the right mood and mindset
03:12:22 <alise> zzo38: actually, I think I'll include all the arguments in the constructor
03:12:46 <alise> client = IRCClient('irc.freenode.net', 6667, 'botte', 'botte', 'botte')

03:20:04 <zzo38> I also entered strange commands into ZZT to see what happens, and then think of how it was programmed to make it to do that, I also entered strange data into the world files that it will load, and I made memory dumps of ZZT.
03:20:56 <zzo38> I also require the endianness to be correct. (SDL provides macros to check the endianness at compile time, so I can make it refuse to compile on big-endian computers)
03:21:41 <zzo38> I am not writing a Pascal decompiler, and I don't need to decompile anything.

03:22:05 <zzo38> Now do you understand?
03:22:25 <alise> no
03:22:31 <alise> i still can't figure out why you downloaded a pascal manual
03:23:16 <olsner> me neither, I don't think this explains how a pascal manual would be relevant
03:32:45 <zzo38> Maybe you can see, when you can see the program.
03:34:37 <alise> zzo38: Maybe you could tell us.
03:41:03 <alise> is the thing you connect to with a socket -- (host,port) -- really (host,port) or (hostname,port)?
03:41:05 <alise> unabbreviated, I mean
03:41:58 <zzo38> alise: I mean put the domain name or IP address
03:42:10 <alise> mm
03:42:15 <alise> should be host then
03:42:18 <alise> as an ip isn't a hostname
03:42:25 <alise> wow, i just realised how awesome an irc library could be with continuations
03:42:26 <alise> you could do

03:42:51 <alise> and before the server returns the whois request
03:42:55 <alise> what the whois call would do is continue the server loop
03:42:59 <alise> so any incoming messages get handled
03:43:06 <alise> then when the whois reply returns, it calls the continuation it saved

04:05:38 <alise> why dvd?
04:06:09 <zzo38> The DVD contain source-codes, executables, and DVI file for printing another copy
04:07:09 <alise> you could fit that on a cd.
04:07:42 <zzo38> I could use a CD. But blank DVDs are less expensive than blank CDs in Canada, due to music tax. It is stupid law, but it is the law anyways.
04:07:51 <zzo38> Even if you are not using the CDs for music.

04:46:08 <zzo38> I think maybe the law should be this: require businesses that use TPMs to include a prominent warning on their packaging

04:55:04 <zeotrope> chem eng/2B
04:55:32 <zzo38> I have idea to built new computer, with new hardware and software, all GNU GPL (and other Free software), the hardware design has a few goals, one is that it is not too difficult to understand how it works (someone can open it and look), another goal is for the hardware design to prevent "digital locks" from working.
04:55:50 <zzo38> However, I can still see one hole in it, the "random number generator" hole, and I am unsure how to correct this.
04:57:11 <zzo38> My initial idea is to use ARM11 and DSPs, but later versions might be designed to use MMIX instead (with a "pre-initialization" mode).
04:57:40 <zzo38> Do you have any opinions about this?
04:58:15 <zeotrope> I don't understand why RNG would be a hole
04:58:34 * alise decides to submit http://merd.sourceforge.net/ to reddit, but cannot think of a title
04:58:57 <alise> maybe "merd language = dynamic expressivity + static type checks"
05:06:20 <zzo38> RNG can be a hole in some cases, especially when companies can provide external hardware that is required to load a game onto a computer.
05:06:44 <zzo38> Or even with network access, this can sometimes be a problem.
05:07:07 <zzo38> I can use trademarks to enforce some rules. But trademarks do not change a hardware design.
05:07:46 <zzo38> (You are not allowed to advertise your products as being compatible with this computer if you do not follow these rules)
05:08:49 <alise> how can rng be a hole
05:13:38 <zzo38> alise: O, you still don't know?
05:14:31 <zzo38> A game might have a random number generator, but then it uses the same sequence of random numbers each time, and ruins the game!
05:15:51 <alise> i see
05:15:54 <alise> how's that a hole
05:19:04 <zzo38> Well, the hardware is designed to prevent digital locks, but it isn't effective if a software company can just design their software so that it ruins the game if you try to mirror the program in hardware.....
05:22:18 <alise> hmm
05:22:20 <alise> i see
05:25:49 <alise> And so, we come swiftly to a conclusion: allow me to introduce the Natty Narwhal, our mascot for development work that we expect to deliver as Ubuntu 11.04.

07:26:35 <coppro> oh wait, does the restriction against killing citizens only apply on US soil?
07:27:03 <pikhq> Doesn't matter; it's still blatantly illegal. You see, the US constitution requires due process.
07:28:23 <coppro> pikhq: that's only for crimes
07:28:31 <coppro> the US can in theory still kill someone arbitrarily
07:29:16 <pikhq> Under this crazy-ass loose interpretation of the US constitution, it can.
07:30:03 <pikhq> If you look at what it actually says, the US hardly has the authority to pick its nose.

07:34:42 <coppro> ?
07:35:12 <coppro> or is it just signed?
07:36:25 <pikhq> It was ratified.
07:36:46 <coppro> has anyone tried to use it to block government actions?

07:37:51 <pikhq> What the fuck?
07:37:57 <coppro> that actually makes sense

07:40:45 <coppro> without a constitutional amendment
07:41:12 <pikhq> The Congress has the power to define its own rules of proceeding.
07:42:25 <coppro> ok
07:43:12 <coppro> does that include by enacting provisions which limit its further powers?

07:44:50 <pikhq> Though it would probably have to be part of its rules of proceedings, *yes* it could in fact limit itself permanently.
07:45:13 <coppro> I suppose that should be construed as saying that an enactment can partially or permanently limit its powers, unless that would interfere with the execution of the Constitution
07:47:45 <coppro> in Canada, our chambers are constitutionally required to act by simple majority (yes, really); it's free to internally limit its procedures, but if it was tried to be permanent, it would probably be deemed unconstitutional under the principle that no Parliament should be able to limit a future one.
07:48:02 <coppro> (except by enactment, of course, but those are more directly subject to the constitution)
07:48:21 <pikhq> There is nothing in the US constitution that requires that Congress' laws be made by majority.
07:48:37 <pikhq> It would, in fact, be *perfectly* valid for Congress to cease making laws forever.
07:49:07 <pikhq> Or delegate its law-making powers to the President. Forever.
07:49:53 <pikhq> *However*, it would still be required to meet.
07:50:03 <coppro> wow
07:50:15 <coppro> and it would probably be interpreted as legal by the courts too
07:50:19 <pikhq> Yes.
07:51:13 <coppro> that's the other safeguard here... a future Parliament effectively /cannot/ be hamstrung by the current one because the ultimate decision authority in affairs regarding the chambers is, in fact, the chambers themselves
07:52:55 <pikhq> There would be one way to make that complete lock-down stop. An amendment.

08:09:01 <pikhq> At least in uncodified law, things are actually functioning according to what has been made law.
08:09:21 <coppro> admittedly, one of the benefits of uncodified law is that it can be flexible

08:14:39 <coppro> since that limited the monarch's powers
08:14:56 <pikhq> Eh, I consider it the same legal system before that. The Magna Carta is merely the first one to make it not total monarchy.

08:24:49 <fizzie> Back when our place (Finland) was independizing (December 1917), there was some debate whether to be a republic or a monarchy. They chose a republic at first, but after that civil war thing there was a bit of power-shifting in the Parliament, and they decided they wanted a king after all; they elected some prince out of Germany as the king. Real soon after that the last German emperor abdicated, and our brand-new king renounced the throne as well.
08:25:43 <fizzie> "Governmental archives reveal that the monarchical designation of the king was intended, at least tentatively, to be 'Charles I, King of Finland and Karelia, Duke of Åland, Grand Prince of Lapland, Lord of Kaleva and the North'."

08:37:33 <pikhq> coppro: *boom*
08:37:34 <coppro> or worse, get a divorce
08:37:46 <coppro> or was that when it was illegal?
08:38:09 <pikhq> No, it's after the formation of the Church of England for the sake of making divorce legal.
08:38:20 <pikhq> coppro: Well, they're still King/Queen regnant.
08:38:59 <pikhq> Andorra's whole monarchy setup confuses me.
08:39:10 <pikhq> (segue!)
08:39:50 <pikhq> One of their two co-Princes is elected. Just not in Andorra.
08:40:04 <coppro> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Whitlam_Ministry
08:40:05 <coppro> wtf
08:40:36 <pikhq> It's the duly elected President of France.
08:40:51 <coppro> yeah
08:40:51 <pikhq> Along with the Bishop of Urgell, in Spain.
08:40:54 <coppro> just read about that
08:40:57 <pikhq> Just... What the hell?
08:41:02 <coppro> aye
08:41:26 <pikhq> The French elect a Prince of Andorra.
08:41:30 <pikhq> Gah.
08:42:42 <fizzie> Bishop of Urgell sounds equally random, even if it's not an elected position. (I profess to complete ignorance on how they select bishops.)
08:42:48 -!- distant_figure has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds).
08:42:56 <fizzie> "Andorra was ceded to the bishop of Urgell by the count Ermengol IV of Urgell in the twelfth century. There is still a bishop of Urgell, who since 2003 has been Joan Enric Vives Sicília. This role carries with it the position of joint head of state of Andorra."
08:43:22 <coppro> IIRC bishops are appointed
08:44:59 <fizzie> Still, looking at the list -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Co-Princes_of_Andorra -- it seems that having a bishop there is a lot stabler than "whoever's the top dog at France", given how much more complicated the right column looks.
08:45:07 <coppro> hah
08:46:01 <pikhq> coppro: It's a somewhat complicated procedure, it seems.
08:46:23 <pikhq> Among other things, it depends on which sub-church of the Roman Catholic Church is involved.
08:47:05 <coppro> sounds about right
08:47:12 <coppro> canon law is ridiculous
08:47:25 <coppro> hell, it used to be a separate degree
08:47:30 <pikhq> 2000 year old legal institutions tend to be.
08:47:34 <coppro> (before it became pointless)

14:23:35 <fizzie> Here's three recaptcha words I've gotten recently: http://zem.fi/~fis/faircaptcha.png -- the first one is in the Cyrillic alphabet, the second I have no clue about, and the third seems to have two levels of superscripts. Sometimes they might be asking a bit much.
14:25:30 <Phantom_Hoover_> The second looks to be in some Asian script.
14:26:03 <fizzie> каковую I reasonably could have written in, and perhaps hunted the second one down with some work, but I don't really know how they'd have wanted me to input the third one. MathML? TeX math notation?
14:27:00 <Phantom_Hoover_> reCAPTCHA uses, at least in part, words that it's not sure about, doesn't it?
14:28:20 <fizzie> Yes, IIRC one of the words it knows, the other it's trying to have you OCR for it.
14:29:14 <fizzie> My guess would be that those three would be those that it doesn't know, but I still wouldn't have felt comfortable entering any sort of garbage.
14:34:59 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, for the 3rd you could have used some sort of flat format/
14:35:19 <Phantom_Hoover_> K[X^p^m+1].
14:36:18 <fizzie> Personally I'd parse that as (X^(p^m))+1 and not X^(p^(m+1)) like it is.
14:45:24 <Phantom_Hoover_> Yes, true.
14:54:31 * Phantom_Hoover_ doesn't really get today's SMBC
14:54:48 <Phantom_Hoover_> This is primarily due to not knowing what a resonant frequency is.

19:05:54 -!- cheater99 has quit (Read error: Connection timed out).
19:06:13 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: You'd have to get a connection, yes.
19:06:25 <alise> And the tier-1 providers have rules, yes.
19:06:27 <Phantom_Hoover_> Just host them in one of the Terra Nullii in Antarctica; you wouldn't need to bother with cooling.
19:06:29 <Sgeo> You'd rather risk America under Palin?
19:06:29 <alise> Such is life.
19:06:33 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: ha
19:06:43 <alise> Sgeo: Oh, yes, I forgot, the American constitution specifies that there may only be two parties.
19:06:48 <pikhq> Sgeo: No. I WANT KUCINICH.
19:06:49 <alise> Also, Palin ran for president, not John McCain.
19:06:51 <Phantom_Hoover_> And it's near enough Argentina that you could run a cable there.
19:06:53 <alise> All these things are true.
19:06:55 -!- cheater99 has joined.
19:07:03 <Sgeo> I said "risk"
19:07:10 <Sgeo> As in, if something happened to McCain
19:07:23 <alise> Yes, because it's impossible to elect someone else entirely.
19:07:45 <alise> As I said, the glorious Constitution provides for two parties: the Republicans, and the Almost Republicans.
19:07:50 <Phantom_Hoover_> It is in the US.
19:07:54 <Sgeo> At the time of the general election, it would be close enough to impossible
19:08:10 <alise> Yes, and that of course means that now, it is bad and wrong to complain.
19:08:28 <Phantom_Hoover_> No, it's not.
19:08:28 <alise> Because you should accept what your horrific political climate decides to stick in your ass, and you should like it.
19:08:36 <alise> God bless America.
19:09:03 <pikhq> alise: One of the major misconceptions of American politics is that if you vote for !Republican || !Democrat then you have voted for RAPING BABIES WITH NUCLEAR MISSILES AND MACES
19:09:12 <alise> pikhq: *&&
19:09:19 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: running a cable to argentina wouldn't help
19:09:30 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: because you'd need to get net-connected in argentina
19:09:32 <pikhq> Because somehow, voting for a third party *guarantees that evil will win*.
19:09:40 <alise> and i think all the providers require you obey the law of your country
19:09:41 <alise> right?
19:09:42 <alise> even tier-1s
19:09:55 <alise> besides, the fact is that you'd break argentinian law
19:10:10 <alise> pikhq: could you get connected to a tier-1 without going through another country, do you think?
19:10:16 <alise> and without being bound by anyone else's laws
19:11:04 <Phantom_Hoover_> Tap into an undersea cable?
19:11:15 <pikhq> alise: You'd set up a private corporation to be connected to said tier-1.
19:11:18 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: That doesn't sound awfully legal.
19:11:36 <pikhq> Sadly, you'd have to be *involved* with another nation to be connected.
19:11:38 <alise> pikhq: A private corporation in the Fair Dictatorial Democracy of Data Haven, yes.
19:11:40 <alise> Mm.
19:11:45 <alise> How did Sealand do it?
19:12:24 <Phantom_Hoover_> You could host on the Moon, so everyone would be able to connect for half the month.
19:12:39 <pikhq> They purchased a wireless link through the UK.
19:12:51 <alise> pikhq: And ... how did that let them host illegal shit, again?
19:12:56 <Phantom_Hoover_> With an antenna and some tracking stuff.
19:13:07 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: Or a REALLY POWERFUL LASER.
19:13:11 <pikhq> alise: It was perfectly legal for the server to be hosting stuff where they operated.

19:15:20 <alise> No technician is going to wear those clothes.
19:15:29 <Phantom_Hoover_> TO EGYPT!
19:15:35 <Phantom_Hoover_> OR THE MOON!
19:15:42 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: I wonder what the nearest first-world country is to the area.
19:15:42 * Phantom_Hoover_ prefers the moon.
19:15:53 <alise> I doubt Egypt has a fast internet link.
19:16:13 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, for the Moon you're going to have pretty high latency.
19:16:29 <alise> Meanwhile, pikhq! Inject some non-Moon-related facts into this discussion.
19:17:01 <pikhq> alise: Your major problem here is that Bir Tawil is landlocked.
19:17:12 <Phantom_Hoover_> Why's that a problem?
19:17:21 <Phantom_Hoover_> The pirates won't be able to dock?
19:17:23 <pikhq> Thus, you'd have to go through Egypt or Sudan...
19:17:31 <alise> pikhq: Good point.
19:17:36 <alise> Not the friendliest countries.
19:17:39 <pikhq> Rather than, say, having a link to Europe.
19:17:44 <alise> Or the countries with the fastest interweb.
19:17:46 <Phantom_Hoover_> Bounce the signal off the MOON!
19:17:58 <alise> pikhq: But is Antarctica really practical?
19:18:03 <pikhq> (Northern Africa. Linking to Europe is *practical*.)
19:18:05 <alise> I mean, those conditions are *shitty*.
19:18:11 <alise> You'd need a /heated/ data centre!
19:18:13 <pikhq> alise: Not especially.
19:18:37 <Phantom_Hoover_> Servers <=> heating, surely?
19:18:37 <pikhq> Well, maybe *right* on a coast.
19:18:53 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: They probably wouldn't RUN on speeds that slow.

19:19:16 <pikhq> alise: Actually. Servers run *better* when cold.
19:19:20 <alise> Well, yes.
19:19:22 <alise> But /that/ cold?
19:19:30 <alise> The components would get icy! :P
19:19:32 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, we can make it unheated and use HTSCs!
19:19:36 <pikhq> Some people have used liquid nitrogen cooling.
19:19:44 <alise> True.
19:19:51 <alise> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0a/Argentina_(orthographic_projection).svg <-- am I right in thinking that you could just pick the bit next to the light green and then link to argentina, dark green?
19:19:51 <Phantom_Hoover_> And you can't get ice when there's no water vapour.
19:19:56 <alise> or are those claimed by someone else?
19:20:08 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: Well, okay, it's just a sort of "wtf that can't work" thing.
19:20:16 <alise> "Antarctica is considered a desert"
19:20:25 <alise> :DD
19:20:26 <pikhq> alise: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Antarctica.jpg
19:20:35 <pikhq> Seems Argentina has claimed it.

19:20:48 <alise> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0a/Argentina_(orthographic_projection).svg
19:20:49 <Phantom_Hoover_> Very long way to Argentina.
19:20:55 <alise> the green is the bit argentina hasn't claimed.
19:20:57 <alise> erm
19:20:59 <Phantom_Hoover_> From Marie Byrd land.
19:21:03 <alise> the green is the bit it has claimed
19:21:08 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: yeah, but undersea cables are long anyway
19:21:12 <alise> Of course our biggest problem
19:21:26 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, they couldn't run through any of those sectors that have been claimed.
19:21:29 <alise> is that this kind of expensive anything-but-child-pr0n hosting has a world market of maybe
19:21:32 <alise> 1,000 customers
19:21:33 <alise> tops
19:21:37 <alise> and this infrastructure is expensive as shit
19:21:53 <alise> therefore i propose we just take that african land and found an anarcho-syndicalist commune
19:22:14 <Phantom_Hoover_> Given that not even Egypt and Sudan want it, that seems a bit impractical.
19:22:17 <Phantom_Hoover_> I vote MOON
19:22:37 <alise> erm, it doesn't look inhospitable.
19:23:01 <pikhq> Just horribly unwanted.
19:23:09 <alise> its name means "water well", quite a promising name :P

19:23:25 <Phantom_Hoover_> Yes.

19:25:56 <pikhq> Actually, technically everything is, you just need to set your allowed latencies way the hell up.
19:26:15 <Phantom_Hoover_> "Where's the intruder coming from?" "The moon!"
19:26:27 <alise> wait wait how do we do the sends
19:26:27 <Phantom_Hoover_> ALIENS ARE STEALING MY DATA
19:26:28 <alise> EASY SOLUTION
19:26:35 <Phantom_Hoover_> alise, LASER
19:26:35 <alise> POINTED AT THE MOON
19:26:44 <Phantom_Hoover_> THAT WAS MY IDEA ALL ALONG
19:26:53 <alise> PEW PEW PEW
19:26:58 <alise> WAIT
19:27:06 <alise> IT WOULD BREAK
19:27:09 <Phantom_Hoover_> You'd only get reception from half the day.
19:27:09 <alise> THEREFORE
19:27:12 <alise> WE ARM GUARDS
19:27:14 <Phantom_Hoover_> At best.
19:27:17 <alise> WITH LASER GUNS
19:27:20 <Phantom_Hoover_> WHAT ABOUT CLOUDS?
19:27:46 <alise> pikhq: http://pastie.org/1108197.txt?key=y7rbmbtn18uwnshgbd8za Please make this code suck less. Thank you.
19:27:51 <alise> pikhq: Also, make it work.
19:27:56 <alise> GO GO GO
19:28:04 <Phantom_Hoover_> Why not just use a wavelength that can go through water?
19:28:20 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: NOT VISIBLE
19:28:21 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover_:
19:28:22 <alise> NOT COOL
19:28:27 <pikhq> Like 2.4 MHz!
19:28:36 <pikhq> It gets rid of clouds and pesky biologicals, too!
19:29:13 <pikhq> alise: Insufficiently functional.
19:29:32 <alise> pikhq: Yeah, but I'm using an insufficiently cool language to keep me sufficiently able to code simple plugins.
19:29:55 <alise> pikhq: In an ideal world, it'd be written in whatever my damn language is called.
19:30:02 <alise> Which has super-asynchronous continuation process functional power!
19:30:11 <alise> And IRC is INTERTWINGLED BETWIXT everything else, dude.
19:30:17 <alise> Responses to WHOISes by continuations!
19:30:22 <alise> NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND.
19:33:07 <pikhq> Your mother.
19:33:13 <alise> pikhq: Your BROTHA.
19:33:14 <Phantom_Hoover_> alise, USE BOTH!
19:33:20 <Phantom_Hoover_> Visible and radio!
19:33:36 <alise> But that'll piss off Eridrianians even more!
19:33:44 <Phantom_Hoover_> Eridrania?
19:33:49 <alise> *Eridanians
19:35:16 <Phantom_Hoover_> But the signals will just hit the moon!
19:35:30 <alise> OR WILL THEY
19:35:43 <Phantom_Hoover_> And the ability to know the current phase of the moon will become relevant!
19:36:14 <alise> nethack.moon.org will only work at the HARDEST POSSIBLE TIME.
19:36:27 <Phantom_Hoover_> No, it won't.
19:36:40 <Phantom_Hoover_> It'll work for 12 hours a day, approximately.
19:36:47 <alise> Shaddap.
19:36:54 <alise> Put broadcasters on BOTH SIDES.
19:36:56 <alise> >_>
19:36:59 <alise> This would so work shut up
19:37:04 <alise> (Yes, I know)
19:37:24 <Phantom_Hoover_> Tidal locking is so cool.
19:39:21 <oerjan> <alise> NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND. <-- wait you're planning to send them to the moon too?
19:39:50 <Phantom_Hoover_> Of course!
19:39:59 <Phantom_Hoover_> We will need maintenance!
19:41:31 <alise> I still think a super-semantic continuation-based IRC library would be a rather ridiculously cool idea. If a horrible case of overengineering.
19:41:53 <Phantom_Hoover_> Although the moon in sunlight is very hot, so I'm not sure how we'd keep it cool.
19:42:20 <alise> Ice lasers.
19:42:24 <alise> We could beam cold from earth.
19:42:27 <alise> Or: LIQUID NITROGEN.
19:42:38 <alise> (How hot does it get, anyway?)
19:43:11 <Phantom_Hoover_> Varies between 123° and -233°
19:43:28 <alise> Presumably -233 is not in the day.
19:44:02 <Phantom_Hoover_> No,
19:44:39 <Phantom_Hoover_> Temperature during the day is averaged at 107°, night at -153
19:44:39 <Warrigal> So, Nordic #esoterickers, what universities are you going to?
19:44:48 <Warrigal> Phantom_Hoover_: Celsius?
19:44:53 <Phantom_Hoover_> Naturally.
19:44:53 <alise> He's British. So, yes.
19:44:57 -!- alise has left (?).
19:44:59 -!- alise has joined.
19:45:02 <Warrigal> Gosh, we'd better give that thing an atmosphere.
19:45:15 <alise> Warrigal: fizzie/Deewiant are Aalto guyz (really TKK but whatever)
19:45:18 <alise> oklopol is university of turku
19:45:24 <alise> who cares about anmaster (uppsala i think?)
19:45:31 <olsner> #esoteric University, of course
19:45:35 <alise> yeah uppsala
19:45:40 <Phantom_Hoover_> So we could keep a reservoir of cold during the night, then use that during the day to keep the servers cool.
19:45:40 <Deewiant> Aalto University School of Science and Technology, these days.
19:45:55 <alise> Deewiant: i'll stick to saying TKK when i need to (which is never)
19:46:32 <Deewiant> It's still even officially TKK for short, I think.
19:46:47 <alise> Switzerland's name is so awesome.
19:46:52 <alise> (Confœderatio Helvetica)
19:47:20 <Warrigal> Mmkay, TKK is the Aalto School of Science, Etc., which is presumably part of Aalto University.
19:47:24 <Phantom_Hoover_> Why did they name it after a font?
19:47:32 <alise> Phantom_Hoover_: You got your cause and effect mixed up, buddy.
19:48:07 <Phantom_Hoover_> Well, what font will we use on the MOON
19:48:09 <alise> In 1960, the typeface's name was changed by Haas' German parent company Stempel to Helvetica (derived from Confoederatio Helvetica, the Latin name for Switzerland) in order to make it more marketable internationally. It was initially suggested that the type be called 'Helvetia' which is the original Latin name for Switzerland. This was ignored by Eduard Hoffmann as he decided it wouldn't be appropriate to name a type after a country. He then decided on 'Hel
19:48:10 <alise> vetica' as this meant 'Swiss' as opposed to 'Switzerland'.
19:48:18 <oerjan> <alise> We could beam cold from earth. <-- in this channel we obey the laws of thermodynamics! not by choice, mind you.
19:49:11 <alise> i am the world's first knitting terrorist
19:49:14 <Warrigal> Huh. Aalto, Turku, and Uppsala are all about the same size.
19:49:25 <Warrigal> Beam cold from Earth. Uh, let me think about how well that would work.
19:49:29 <alise> Warrigal: but only ONE is next to helsinki!
19:49:36 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover_: something lunatic, obviously
19:49:49 <alise> which contains all 3 people in Finland
19:49:54 <alise> 5 or so of whom are in here
19:49:55 <Warrigal> I say it would work about as well as beaming energy from Earth.
19:50:04 <alise> as our Finnology department has discovered
19:50:06 <oerjan> lunatica is a cool name for a font. right?
19:50:15 <alise> oerjan: yes, i'll alias it to Curlz MT
19:50:16 <Warrigal> Yeah, I was wondering, if there are only 3 people in Finland, how come this channel has more than 3 people?
19:50:32 <Vorpal> <alise> who cares about anmaster (uppsala i think?) <-- no?
19:50:44 <Vorpal> I'm nowhere near uppsala
19:50:46 <alise> Vorpal: you said uppsala university before
19:50:58 <alise> Warrigal: this has been covered in depth in prior months (i think a year or so ago even)
19:51:03 <alise> Warrigal: one of them drives the bus, btw
19:51:05 <Warrigal> Oh, AnMaster is in disguise.
19:51:16 <alise> ihope: Indeed.
19:51:18 <alise> uorygl: He is.
19:51:20 <Vorpal> alise, no I didn't. At most I said I considered it to be interesting to do master studies there
19:51:21 <olsner> what does finland have to do with this channel?
19:51:34 <alise> olsner: there's a lot of you here
19:51:35 <Vorpal> but bachelor I never claimed I'm doing at that university
19:51:39 <Vorpal> alise, ^
19:51:39 <fizzie> Also, Helsinki University has more students than the combined might of Aalto; then again, UH is a generalized everything-in-it university, while Aalto is just a amalgamation of three specialized ones (technology, arts, business, in no particular order).
19:51:41 <alise> Vorpal: ok. thought you did
19:51:41 <Warrigal> olsner: it's a mathematical theorem that if this channel is analytic, then everyone in it is Finnish.
19:51:43 <Phantom_Hoover_> what does it have to do with the moon
19:52:08 <alise> Let's see... Ilari, ineiros, fizzie, Deewiant
19:52:15 <Deewiant> fizzie: Oh, it's still bigger? I hadn't realized that.
19:52:29 <alise> think there used to be one or two more
19:52:51 <fizzie> Deewiant: Source: Wikipedia; but it says 35200 students for UH, 20434 for Aalto. Those other two "we" got were so small, relatively speaking.
19:52:52 <Phantom_Hoover_> oklopol
19:52:55 <oerjan> Warrigal: i doubt this channel is even measurable, far less analytic
19:52:57 <Warrigal> I should change my nickname to one of those fancy newfangled initial-and-name nicks.
19:53:09 <Warrigal> Like "ehird" and "jcowan" and "rlpowell" and "dons".
19:53:13 <alise> Nordic, etc.: MigoMipo, MizardX, oerjan, FireFly, fizzie, Deewiant, ineiros, Ilari, and olsner.
19:53:14 <Deewiant> fizzie: Hmm, by that much, too.
19:53:27 <Warrigal> Except one of those is an initial-and-initial-and-name nick and another is a name-and-initial nick.
19:53:27 <Deewiant> alise: oklopol.
19:53:33 <fizzie> Deewiant: Surely some sort of land-grab war would be in order.
19:53:34 <alise> Deewiant: well he never comes here any more, but yeah
19:53:54 <alise> Warrigal: They're rubbish unless you have the right name.
19:54:02 <alise> Initials are great if you can pull it off.
19:54:11 <Warrigal> "tswett" is a rather dubious name.
19:54:16 <alise> but is ts?
19:54:20 <alise> actually i think there's a ts on freenode already
19:54:24 <Warrigal> "ts" is too short.
19:54:31 <alise> No it's not.
19:54:35 <alise> * ts :Nickname is already in use.
19:54:35 <Warrigal> No pun intended.
19:54:37 <alise> But it is in use.
19:54:44 <alise> * [ts] (~ts@bzflag/developer/ts): Thomas Stauer
19:54:45 <Warrigal> See? It's so short that it's in use.
19:54:52 <alise> Warrigal: tanners!
19:55:01 -!- alise has changed nick to tanners.
19:55:04 <Warrigal> I guess his claim to that nick is as good as mine.
19:55:04 <tanners> You can have it for $100.
19:55:12 <Warrigal> "tanners" is a common noun.
19:55:16 <tanners> Precisely!
19:55:17 <Vorpal> <Warrigal> Oh, AnMaster is in disguise. <-- you change nick too...
19:55:20 <Warrigal> As is "tanner".
19:55:24 <tanners> It is also REGISTERED!
19:55:26 <Warrigal> Vorpal: not often, though.
19:55:28 -!- tanners has changed nick to swett.
19:55:33 <Warrigal> Registered? By whom?
19:55:34 <swett> Warrigal: Here you go.
19:55:36 <swett> By tanners.
19:55:40 <swett> TannerS, it is.
19:55:55 <Warrigal> The only nick I'm actually considering is tswett, so if you want to take what I want from me, register that one.
19:55:59 -!- swett has changed nick to tswett.
19:56:02 <tswett> But this one is awful.
19:56:03 -!- derdon has joined.
19:56:09 <Vorpal> Warrigal, I did it once
19:56:09 <Warrigal> All the better.
19:56:13 <Vorpal> Warrigal, so not often either!
19:56:15 * Sgeo would be very reluctant to nickchange to, say, sgold
19:56:18 <tswett> I don't want to take it, I just want to extort a ludicrous price out of you for it.
19:56:27 <tswett> Sgeo: and Sgeo_who_is_Seth_Gold would be EVEN WORSE!
19:56:40 <Warrigal> I'm hoping that you'll take it so that I can sue you.
19:56:40 <fizzie> Also fungot, 'es Finnish! In the "place of residence" sense, at least, even if not the nationality one.
19:56:41 <fungot> fizzie: so please suggest a male name that starts with a small bootable linux distro, i have
19:56:42 <Warrigal> Metaphorically.
19:56:48 <Sgeo> Especially since it's probably too long
19:56:49 <tswett> Warrigal: Yes, IRC Law.
19:56:51 <tswett> fizzie: I said (fungot).
19:56:52 <fungot> tswett: the guy who ircs from a phone was to use ffmpeg to generate a new name, now?
19:56:58 <tswett> No, I didn't.
19:57:00 <tswett> I meant to, though.
19:57:11 <fizzie> A male name that starts with a bootable Linux distro sounds awesome, too.
19:57:16 <tswett> Warrigal: Use ffmpeg to generate a new name.
19:57:18 <fizzie> If a bit long.
19:57:22 <tswett> Warrigal: Only if you IRC from a phone though.
19:57:40 <tswett> fizzie: So who's fungot's mother?
19:57:40 <fungot> tswett: sisc, chicken, fnord supports keywords are indexes in terms, but you do need eof)
19:57:49 <tswett> Ah, Scheme implementations are.
19:57:53 -!- SgeoN1 has joined.
19:57:58 <Warrigal> Mmkay, move over. The nick envy is setting in.
19:58:05 <tswett> ~~~
19:58:10 <tswett> but this name sucks :-P
19:58:18 <Warrigal> Precisely. Why do you want it? :P
19:58:28 <SgeoN1> Great, now to figure out how to use ffmpeg as an rng
19:58:34 <tswett> Because I think there is a very slight chance that I can either get a tiny bit of money from you for it, or amuse myself trying to.
19:58:41 * Warrigal nods.
19:58:42 <tswett> Also, because I know you know I'll give up very quickly.
19:58:49 <Warrigal> Yeah, I figured.
19:58:53 -!- Phantom_Hoover_ has changed nick to Vonlebio.
19:59:01 <tswett> Quick! Let's assume other people's nicks!

20:35:33 <HackEgo> alise's first child now has a little brother or sister! Aren't they so cute together?
20:36:06 <alise> <oklopol> but yeah i'm not exactly comfortable with this stuff, to me it seems like if you can unscrew lightbulbs, why couldn't you see into the future, or through walls as well
20:36:32 <Sgeo_> Oh come on, 7 and more is boring
20:36:42 <alise> Sgeo_: ?
20:36:56 <alise> Oh, orgy opinions?
20:37:23 <alise> By the time there's 7, there's gonna be enough space usage that it's effectively two smaller orgies with occasional diplomatic relations :P
20:38:24 <olsner> ooh, command-line sqlite, looks like a really convenient way to make a database
20:38:45 <alise> olsner: my friends, echo, sed, grep and awk
20:38:48 <alise> let me introduce you to them
20:39:19 <alise> `fuck
20:39:21 <HackEgo> alise now has a third child! Congratulations! Surely that's enough though, right?
20:39:23 <alise> STAMINA
20:39:47 <olsner> alise: yeah, I know of them... let's just say sqlite looks like a very useful friend to also have :)
20:40:05 <alise> olsner: But it can't join in the UNIX plain text file orgy.
20:40:13 <olsner> bah, backtick is gruesome, takes three keypresses in swedish
20:40:15 <alise> Which is the most hacked-together yet surprisingly functional orgy ever.
20:40:20 <olsner> `fuck
20:40:26 <HackEgo> olsner just had a SIXTH baby! Wow! Don't you think it's about time to get an operation to put a stop to all this?
20:40:29 <alise> olsner: yeah but you guys do have a retarded alphabet

20:40:49 <alise> `fuck
20:40:50 <Vonlebio> `run cat `which fuck`
20:40:51 <HackEgo> alise just had a fourth baby. Even though the child support payments are starting to add up, and alise really doesn't earn enough money for this, it's still a beautiful sight.

20:41:03 <alise> `fuck
20:41:05 <HackEgo> You would think that four is enough, but alise's libido is entirely unstoppable. With five children, the weight of parenthood is starting to weigh down on alise's life. Sorry buddies, I can't hang out today, I have to clean puke off the rug.
20:41:08 <olsner> the alphabet is not retarded, it just has three additional letters... it's the keyboard layout
20:41:13 <alise> `fuck
20:41:16 <HackEgo> alise just had a SIXTH baby! Wow! Don't you think it's about time to get an operation to put a stop to all this?
20:41:19 <alise> `fuck
20:41:20 <alise> NEVER
20:41:21 <HackEgo> alise's 7th child has just been born! Awwwwww.
20:41:26 <alise> Now it's boring.
20:41:28 <Sgeo_> It just gets boring .. right
20:41:29 <alise> Sgeo_: Oh, you meant seven or more babies.
20:41:33 <alise> Not seven or more orgy participants.
20:41:34 <Sgeo_> alise, yes
20:41:39 <alise> I totally misinterpreted you!
20:41:47 <olsner> for some reason it's made to support the accented letters of *every* european language
20:41:58 <alise> olsner: Because you're HIPPIE COMMUNISTIC EUROFAGS.
20:42:19 <olsner> grave and acute accent, circumflex, tilde, double-dots -- all as dead keys

20:58:47 <alise> Sgeo_: quick! what's the recommended way to do mutually dependent modules in python?
20:58:57 <alise> haha only kidding you're NOT ALLOWED TO
20:58:57 <Sgeo_> um
20:59:34 <alise> i mean technically you can
20:59:36 <alise> but it's really brittle
20:59:43 <Sgeo_> Hmm?
20:59:48 <alise> e.g.
20:59:49 <alise> you can't do
20:59:51 <alise> from foo import bar
21:00:02 <alise> from bar import blah
21:00:04 <alise> er that is
21:00:06 <alise> from foo import x
21:00:07 <alise> from bar import y
21:00:08 <alise> in each module
21:00:10 <alise> that won't work
21:00:50 <Sgeo_> "She didn't answer, save for a soft smile. Their eyes locked, and Sokka caught a slightly doe-eyed look on his sister face that he never, ever, ever, ever, ever wanted to see directed at anyone much less himself."
21:01:13 <alise> olsner: Random person! The IRC connection-mediator-thingy IRCClient should really be the one that parses lines, shouldn't it, not the Context (the "fully parsed" version, with field names depending on command, methods to reply to the right place, etc.) class?!
21:01:32 -!- SgeoN2 has joined.
21:01:50 <alise> Sgeo_: Ever, erver, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever,
21:02:59 <olsner> alise: sounds like you know what you're talking about, and I don't
21:03:13 <alise> olsner: No, I honestly don't. I'm just trying to get an opinion.
21:03:36 <olsner> the parser of lines should obviously be independent of both
21:03:50 <alise> olsner: the parser is a very few lines
21:04:04 <alise> besides, shouldn't irc.py contain the IRC parser, not context.py? :P
21:04:06 <alise> really it should be client.py.
21:04:08 <alise> I should make it client.py.
21:04:43 -!- SgeoN1 has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
21:10:16 <Sgeo_> DIE DIE DIE SgeoN1!
21:15:44 <alise> olsner: i /think/ the client should do the parsing actually
21:15:54 <alise> since it has fancy methods like .say(channel, 'blah')
21:16:00 <alise> so obviously it already does some irc translation
21:16:17 <alise> the problem is i have to come up with a structure to represent the parsing :) no wait i don't i can use context! yay!
21:17:55 * olsner seems to be doing well as the rubber duck
21:18:15 <alise> olsner: you can't buy amusing swedish rubber ducks!
21:18:25 <alise> anmaster is proof of this
21:19:54 <alise> olsner: Except, of course, that IRCClients don't know about the big bad Bot that puts them together, but Context needs the bot so that handlers can use it.
21:20:00 <alise> Yet IRCClients construct the Context.
21:20:02 <alise> NOW WHAT
21:21:19 <alise> olsner: I mean, I /could/ pass a reference to the Bot to the IRCClient, but the IRCClient has no reason to know i-- yes it DOES
21:21:26 <alise> Because it passes the Context on to the bot to handle it
21:21:35 <alise> You're the best, olsner, you know that?
21:22:15 <olsner> no, I don't know that :)
21:23:21 <Vorpal> <alise> olsner: you can't buy amusing swedish rubber ducks! <alise> anmaster is proof of this <-- err?
21:23:40 <alise> Vorpal: You're a Swedish rubber duck. You are not amusing.
21:23:42 <alise> Quod erat demonstrandum.
21:23:47 <alise> olsner: You do now!
21:23:57 <Vorpal> alise, but why do you think I'm a rubber duck?
21:24:04 <alise> Well, only rubber ducks are that dumb.
21:24:14 <olsner> alise: or *do* I? :P
21:24:30 <alise> olsner: You fixed my architecture without saying a word!
21:24:46 <Vorpal> alise, it's a little known fact but rubber ducks are in fact highly intelligent, with an average IQ of 420
21:24:52 <Vorpal> not that IQ means much
21:24:58 <Vorpal> bbl
21:25:12 <Vonlebio> And not that 420 is even a meaningful IQ.
21:25:22 -!- augur has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
21:25:38 <alise> DUCKS: Constantly stoned, and CONSTANTLY INTELLECTUAL.
21:25:56 <alise> When they're not smoking pot, their IQ is actually -83; just high enough to light up the next one.
21:26:03 <Vonlebio> Incidentally, random idea: Brainfuck compiler in Coq, like Compcert (?)
21:26:14 <alise> Vonlebio: It's not exactly hard to certify a Brainfuck compiler :P
21:26:28 <Vonlebio> So it's something to do!
21:26:43 <alise> Do it, then.
21:26:46 <alise> Then extract it :P
21:26:50 <Vonlebio> http://www.labri.fr/perso/casteran/CoqArt/firebird.jpg
21:26:56 <alise> Vonlebio: btw, I think an IQ of 420 is theoretically possible
21:26:58 <Vonlebio> I hope like hell that's the real cover.
21:27:10 <Vonlebio> It's theoretically possible in the loosest sense.
21:27:15 <alise> http://www.amazon.com/Interactive-Theorem-Proving-Development-ebook/dp/B000QCUCZU
21:27:17 <alise> well, not this printing
21:27:18 <Vonlebio> It will never, but never, happen.
21:27:19 <alise> but maybe the first printing
21:27:26 <alise> Vonlebio: Post-singularity?
21:27:29 <Vonlebio> No.
21:27:37 <alise> I don't see why not.
21:27:41 <Vonlebio> IQ is defined based on average intelligence.
21:27:45 <alise> Well, true.
21:27:49 <alise> But right after the Singularity.
21:27:52 <alise> Before it's been re-adjusted.
21:28:15 <alise> Or, the combined intelligence counting as one person, and all the billions of dumbfucks on planet Earth left behind.
21:28:26 <Vonlebio> In any case, I still don't think it would be sensible.
21:28:41 <Vonlebio> It would mean absolutely nothing, for one thing.
21:28:57 <alise> It would certainly mean something.
21:29:00 <alise> I don't see how it'd mean nt ohing.
21:29:06 <Vonlebio> "It's incomprehensibly intelligent. 420 IQ."
21:29:39 <alise> *nothing.
21:29:40 <alise> Vonlebio: True.
21:30:09 <Vonlebio> This is even assuming you can *have* an intelligence metric that applies to post-Singularity intellects.
21:30:20 <alise> Uh, just give it one of the standard IQ tests. :-D
21:30:23 <alise> (Yeah, that wouldn't work.)
21:30:27 <alise> (Maximum score and all that jazz.)
21:30:48 <Vonlebio> And of course, you wouldn't be able to calibrate it with the extant data.
21:31:18 <alise> Gahh, I hate cluttery .pyc files.
21:31:20 <alise> They make me want to kill.
21:31:30 <Vonlebio> Cluttery?
21:31:33 <alise> Yeah.
21:31:39 <alise> They clutter up directory listings, tab complete, etc.
21:32:10 <olsner> IIRC, you can disable compilation somehow
21:32:12 <Vonlebio> Then just find . -name "*.pyc" | xargs rm every once in a while
21:32:32 <olsner> and/or disable saving the pyc files

22:01:55 <alise> coppro: hmm, good idea, thanks
22:01:56 <Vonlebio> Ah. THAT IS AN ABOMINATION
22:02:05 <alise> coppro: or even
22:02:14 <pikhq> This is entirely coincidence.

22:13:43 <alise> (There are other number structures)
22:13:44 <alise> yes
22:13:50 <alise> (there is a binary Z iirc)
22:13:54 <alise> (maybe a binary N too)
22:13:57 <alise> well
22:13:59 <alise> i know there's a binary z
22:14:01 <alise> may not be a binary n
22:14:07 <Vonlebio> I think there is.
22:14:51 <Vonlebio> Check 10000000. => segfault
22:14:58 <Vonlebio> Encouraging.
22:15:52 <oerjan> Coq is based on a tiny kernel on purpose, surely they cannot afford to special case that.
22:16:08 <oerjan> *proof kernel
22:16:54 <Sgeo_> ARGH
22:17:02 <Sgeo_> Stupid unfinished fanfic!
22:18:02 <alise> oerjan: yeah, exactly
22:18:06 <Vonlebio> Well, they do, to some degree.
22:18:08 <alise> Vonlebio: look at the binary Z
22:18:10 <alise> no, they don't
22:18:29 <Vonlebio> "Warning: Stack overflow or segmentation fault happens when working with large
22:18:29 <Vonlebio> numbers in nat (observed threshold may vary from 5000 to 70000 depending on
22:18:29 <Vonlebio> your system limits and on the command executed)."
22:18:55 <Vonlebio> So there is some degree of special-casing.
22:19:11 <alise> no
22:19:13 <alise> how is that special casing
22:19:34 <oerjan> huh? surely that is happening precisely because Nats are _not_ special cased, but treated just like its definition...
22:19:50 <oerjan> which gives you a huge depth of S's
22:19:51 <alise> i think he means the warning is a special case
22:19:55 <alise> which is a bit stupid.
22:20:31 <oerjan> *their
22:20:57 <Vonlebio> Ah, didn't get what you meant by "special case".
22:21:08 <alise> i.e. as part of the actual proof kernel
22:21:13 <alise> which, if it has a single flaw, is disasterous
22:21:15 <oerjan> yeah
22:21:18 <Vonlebio> Yeah.
22:21:32 <alise> agda regularly find bugs in their proof kernel because it's fucking gigantic :)

22:57:06 <alise> i.e., a given C program always compiles to the right assembly
22:57:10 <Vonlebio> Ah.
22:57:12 <alise> i.e., the compiler is proven to compile properly
22:57:16 <alise> always
22:57:18 <Vonlebio> That must be complex.
22:57:24 <alise> yes. it is
22:57:27 <alise> which is why compcert is so amazing
22:57:38 <Vonlebio> And the PowerPC bit?
22:57:43 <alise> god knows
22:57:49 <alise> maybe they developed it on macs (it's a bit old)
22:57:59 <alise> maybe the machine code had some desirable property that made it easier
22:58:56 <Vonlebio> A certified BF compiler would actually be impossible, come to think of it.
22:59:06 <Vonlebio> Since it's compiling to a lower CC.
22:59:30 <Vonlebio> So there will always exist some BF program that can't be compiled.
22:59:54 <Sgeo_> CC?
23:00:01 <Vonlebio> Computational class
23:00:15 <alise> eh what
23:00:21 <alise> oh you mean that c is not tc
23:00:40 <alise> Vonlebio: you could certify it as working "if we presume" that pointers have infinite range, though
23:00:46 <alise> which is a reasonable enough, although false, assumption to make
23:00:47 <alise> i.e.
23:00:55 <alise> we're compiling down to C where sizeof(void *) is allowed to be 1, say
23:00:59 <alise> but it's actually infinitely big
23:01:01 <alise> a C variant
23:01:07 * Vonlebio -> sleep
