00:15:42 <Vorpal> <oerjan> argh the logs cut off about an hour and a half ago <-- someone mail the guy to fix clog, it's broken
00:15:50 <Vorpal> oerjan, you do it
00:15:55 <Vorpal> oerjan, I don't have his mail
00:16:07 <oerjan> neither do i
00:16:15 <Vorpal> who do then
00:16:17 <Vorpal> does*
00:16:33 <Vorpal> <ais523> for instance, for a while there was a standard request for passengers to shift their weight to the left, because otherwise the doors wouldn't close <-- awesome
00:16:53 * Sgeo doesn't particularly have much weight to shift
00:17:05 * Sgeo is 111 lbs last he checked
00:17:32 <Vorpal> Sgeo, what is that in the SI system units?
00:17:53 <pikhq> Vorpal: ~50kg
00:18:00 <Vorpal> ah
00:18:05 <Vorpal> that's tiny indeed
00:18:11 * Vorpal is closer to 85 kg
00:18:18 <Vorpal> but then I'm tall
00:18:27 * pikhq is something like 80kg
00:18:36 <Vorpal> pikhq, 189.5 cm
00:18:59 <pikhq> Vorpal: 180 cm or so
00:19:08 <Vorpal> ah, so you are short :P
00:19:14 <Vorpal> (well not really)
00:19:26 <pikhq> For certain definitions of "short", perhaps. Ones set by giants, for instance.
00:19:39 <Vorpal> pikhq, indeed!
00:20:05 <Vorpal> pikhq, I wish I had grown to 190 cm. 189.5 is *soo close*
00:20:09 <Vorpal> it is annoying me
00:20:41 <pikhq> What annoys me is non-SI units.
00:21:14 <pikhq> Especially ambiguous ones.
00:21:57 <pikhq> A pound of feathers is heavier than a pound of gold.
00:22:02 <pikhq> Why!
00:23:06 <Vorpal> pikhq, what
00:23:20 <Vorpal> pikhq, what about a pound of pounds?
00:23:22 <pikhq> A pound of feathers is 454g. A pound of gold is 373g.
00:23:25 <Vorpal> does that count as gold?
00:23:44 <pikhq> Because precious metals are measured in troy weights, not avoirdupois weights.
00:23:50 <pikhq> But both use the same names for their units.
00:24:38 <Vorpal> pikhq, "avoirdupois weights" <-- really? is it different from normal pounds of other stuff?
00:25:06 <pikhq> The avoirdupois system of weight units is the typical one.
00:25:13 <pikhq> Troy is used for precious metals.
00:26:13 <Vorpal> ah
00:26:13 <pikhq> But, an ounce of feathers is lighter than an ounce of gold.
00:26:46 <pikhq> 28 g and 31g, respectively.
00:27:02 <Vorpal> pikhq, is this what you use? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:English_mass_units_graph.svg
00:27:20 <pikhq> 16 avoirdupois ounces to the avoirdupois pound, 12 troy ounces to the troy pound.
00:27:23 <pikhq> Uuugggh.
00:28:17 <Vorpal> haha
00:28:40 <pikhq> Vorpal: Yes, except that ony avoirdupois and troy units are in common use today, and the grain, scruple, pennyweight, shilling, mark, dram, clove, nail, stone, quarter, tod, hundredweight, and sack are obnoxious archaicisms in the US.
00:29:02 <Vorpal> pikhq, :D
00:29:19 <Vorpal> pikhq, you should start using those, just to annoy people. With metric prefixes
00:29:26 <pikhq> The kilograin? :D
00:29:27 <Vorpal> like a kiloclove
00:29:34 <Vorpal> pikhq, or that!
00:29:56 <pikhq> Vorpal: Oh, it gets worse. The ounce is also a couple units of volume.
00:30:02 <Vorpal> heh
00:30:08 <Vorpal> what is the mark?
00:30:14 <Vorpal> about how large is it in metric units
00:30:32 <pikhq> Vorpal: An ounce of water != 1 ounce of ice, in volume.
00:30:42 <Vorpal> I have no mental picture of the magnitude of these units
00:30:53 <Vorpal> which i do have for the SI system
00:31:33 <Vorpal> pikhq, "decisack", the word is awesome
00:32:48 -!- Mathnerd314 has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
00:33:04 <pikhq> Vorpal: Because the fluid ounce is 29.5 ml, and the dry ounce is 31 ml.
00:33:12 <Vorpal> ugh
00:33:18 <Vorpal> pikhq, why on earth
00:33:19 <pikhq> (note: dry units of volume not in common use)
00:33:31 <pikhq> (aside from the peck & the bushel)
00:33:43 <Vorpal> "peck & the bushel"?
00:34:06 <pikhq> Used for measuring agricultural yields.
00:34:13 <Vorpal> heh
00:34:17 <pikhq> For instance, bushels of wheat, pecks of fruit.
00:34:26 <Vorpal> pikhq, iirc mostly m^3 here
00:35:00 <pikhq> Oh, and a barrel of oil is not the same volume as a barrel of water, which is not the same volume as a barrel of wheat.
00:35:13 <pikhq> 158L, 119L, 115L, respectively.
00:35:23 <Vorpal> wtf
00:35:28 <Vorpal> pikhq, you are so crazy
00:35:36 <Vorpal> why do you keep using that system
00:35:44 <pikhq> Vorpal: People claim it makes more sense.
00:35:47 <pikhq> Honest to God.
00:36:08 <pikhq> Oh, also: 1 mile on land is not the same distance as a mile on sea.
00:36:30 <Vorpal> pikhq, yes but people write "nautical mile" when they mean it
00:36:31 <pikhq> 1.6km and 1.8km, respectively.
00:36:34 <Vorpal> they don't call it mile
00:36:39 <pikhq> True, but still.
00:36:55 <Vorpal> at least in aviation nm is used as the unit on instruments and such
00:36:59 <Vorpal> which is kind of fun
00:37:05 <Vorpal> since it is not nanometer
00:37:10 <Vorpal> but nautical mile
00:38:34 <pikhq> I should note that there is no convenient conversion between cubic inches & units of volume.
00:39:01 <Vorpal> only to be expected with a system that wasn't designed but grew over time
00:39:06 <pikhq> (unlike how 1L = 1dm)
00:39:29 <pikhq> There *is* an easy conversion between units of volume and masses of water, though.
00:39:47 <pikhq> 1 fl oz. of water is about 1 oz. of water
00:39:59 <pikhq> (it used to be exact before redefining the units in terms of SI)
00:39:59 <Vorpal> "about"
00:40:05 <Vorpal> ah
00:41:21 <pikhq> Much like how 1L used to be 1kg of water before the SI units were defined more exactly.
00:42:17 <Vorpal> indeed
00:42:21 <pikhq> Oh, you want even more of a headache?
00:42:32 <Vorpal> heh, go ahead
00:42:44 <pikhq> Each Commonwealth nation using customary units has their own definitions of them.
00:43:11 <pikhq> Oh, s/Commonweatlh/
00:43:12 <Vorpal> how nice
00:43:15 <pikhq> Erm. Anyways.
00:43:40 <pikhq> A tablespoon in Canada is 15ml. In US, 14.79ml. According to the FDA (a US government agency), 15ml. In Australia, 20ml.
00:44:00 <pikhq> A US gallon is 3785ml. A UK gallon is 4546ml.
00:44:20 <Vorpal> that's quite a large difference
00:45:02 <pikhq> Fortunately, the length and weight units were fixed by international treaty, so the only distinctions there are land/nautical and avoirdupois/troy.
00:45:35 <Vorpal> btw, I should start using kiloseconds, it makes a lot more sense than minutes and hours
00:45:57 <pikhq> ... No, wait, the weight units are *almost* the same. A UK hundredweight is 112lb, and a US hundredweight is 100lb.
00:46:17 <pikhq> And in both, a ton is 20 hundredweights.
00:46:22 <pikhq> So close and yet so far.
00:46:33 <Vorpal> pikhq, over here a ton is 1000 kg. And a mile is 10 km
00:46:44 <pikhq> Vorpal: That's the metric ton.
00:46:46 <pikhq> :)
00:46:52 <Vorpal> pikhq, and a scandinavian mile
00:46:59 <pikhq> The Us also uses metric tons.
00:47:24 <pikhq> The only thing we abhor more than sane units is consistent units!
00:48:20 <Vorpal> pikhq, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandinavian_mile
00:48:28 <Vorpal> quite a nice unit, if anyone else used it
00:48:40 <Vorpal> it is a nice size to be useful
00:48:48 <pikhq> Quite a reasonable unit.
00:48:52 <Vorpal> indeed
00:49:02 <Vorpal> pikhq, and useful on the distances found in Sweden
00:49:07 <pikhq> Even if it is hectometer.
00:49:17 <Vorpal> like, two mil to university for me
00:49:19 <pikhq> Erm.
00:49:20 <pikhq> Megameter.
00:49:21 <Vorpal> or about that
00:49:24 <Sgeo> The data on my HD is degrading as we speak?
00:49:32 <pikhq> Erm.
00:49:34 <pikhq> THINK JOSIAH
00:49:54 <Vorpal> You have: 10 km
00:49:54 <Vorpal> You want: megameter
00:49:54 <Vorpal> * 0.01
00:49:54 <Sgeo> And don't yell at me, yell at my dad on my behalf please
00:50:15 <pikhq> Why aren't there SI prefixes for every power of 10 in a useful range?
00:50:20 <Vorpal> You have: 10 km
00:50:20 <Vorpal> You want: hectometer
00:50:20 <Vorpal> * 100
00:50:59 <Vorpal> pikhq, because um, imagine having name for everything between giga and yotta, instad of just a few
00:51:11 <Vorpal> pikhq, result: even sillier names than "yotta"
00:51:11 <pikhq> Vorpal: It's powers of 1000.
00:51:17 <Vorpal> and that would be bad
00:52:04 <pikhq> Anyways.
00:52:11 -!- augur_ has joined.
00:52:32 * oerjan points out that nautical mile actually _is_ a logical unit. well approximately.
00:52:46 <Vorpal> oerjan, oh?
00:52:54 <pikhq> Vorpal: It gets worse if you start trying to do physics using traditional units.
00:53:07 <Vorpal> Sweden used to use metric units for flight, we don't any longer because no one else does
00:53:18 <oerjan> it's originally the length of one minute of arc of a meridian, useful for sea maps
00:53:22 <olsner> you can always combine deka/deci and hecto/centi with the standard prefixes
00:53:27 <Vorpal> basically it screwed up for altitude calculations with about everyone else
00:53:59 <Vorpal> oh Soviet was completely metric too
00:54:04 <Vorpal> for flight
00:54:11 <Vorpal> but that was about it
00:54:25 <oerjan> olsner: by "you can always" you mean "it's not actually permitted to" afaik
00:54:44 <Vorpal> oerjan, dekakilometer?
00:54:45 <Vorpal> XD
00:54:55 <pikhq> Vorpal: ft^2°Fh/BTU, anyone?
00:54:56 <olsner> not actually permitted? who has the power to forbid this?
00:54:58 <Vorpal> or kilodekameter perhaps
00:55:01 <Vorpal> pikhq, what?
00:55:21 <oerjan> it's not part of the standard, anyway
00:55:29 -!- augur has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
00:55:40 <pikhq> Vorpal: That's a unit of thermal resistance. The foot-squared degree Fahrenheit hour per British Thermal Unit.
00:55:59 <Vorpal> pikhq, still flight use two units of pressure, and instruments are commonly marked with both SI units (hPa iirc) and inHg
00:56:15 <Vorpal> pikhq, what is the SI unit for it?
00:56:22 <pikhq> Km^2/W
00:56:24 <Vorpal> ah
00:56:45 <Vorpal> pikhq, what is "British Thermal Unit" exactly?
00:57:17 <pikhq> 1055.056 J
00:57:21 <Vorpal> aha
00:57:25 <Vorpal> how silly
00:57:40 <Vorpal> pikhq, now if SI could just get rid of the kg prototype
00:57:46 <pikhq> (1055.05585262 in the UK)
00:57:56 <Vorpal> define it in terms of some natural constants or such
00:58:08 <oerjan> it's the heat production corresponding to one second of british parliament discussion
00:58:12 <Vorpal> like has been done for all the other prototypes
00:58:50 <Vorpal> pikhq, shouldn't "British termal unit" refer to UK always?
00:58:55 <pikhq> Vorpal: Nope!
00:58:59 <pikhq> That would make sense!
00:59:02 <Vorpal> I mean, "UK British termal unit" is absurd
00:59:05 <augur_> Vorpal: they _have_ gotten rid of the kg prototype, i think
00:59:13 <pikhq> augur_: No, it's the remaining prototype.
00:59:19 <augur_> really
00:59:20 <augur_> interesting
00:59:22 -!- augur_ has changed nick to augur.
00:59:37 <pikhq> There's currently debate over what possible replacement definition to use.

01:36:19 <Sgeo> It rings a bell though
01:36:22 <lament> other than stretchy rope
01:36:28 <dbelange> lament lol
01:36:29 <coppro> alise: don't submit to me
01:36:31 <lament> are you talking about stretchy rope dbelange
01:36:36 * Sgeo Googles
01:36:40 <Sgeo> Some video game dev?
01:36:50 <alise> coppro: i am merely asking for feedback, you... you worthless bear-mauler
01:37:04 <Sgeo> Aha! Proof that several video games are made in Befunge!
01:37:09 <Sgeo> It can't be a coincidence
01:37:10 <alise> dbelange: wait, the company?
01:37:19 <dbelange> Yeah I'm wondering pretty much about video game developing in Befunge
01:37:23 <alise> Sgeo: bungie make marathon and halo
01:37:31 <dbelange> since it is pretty much a game already
01:37:36 -!- Sgeo has changed nick to GlennBeck.
01:37:37 <alise> dbelange: no relation whatsoever
01:37:39 -!- GlennBeck has changed nick to Sgeo.
01:37:41 <lament> you're in luck befunge is pretty much designed for video game development
01:37:41 <alise> wait, how is it even a game...
01:37:43 <Sgeo> Ok, that nick is registered
01:37:47 <alise> lament: xD
01:37:49 <dbelange> alise: But they did make Pfohrtran
01:37:57 <alise> it is -- hunt the wumpus!
01:38:15 <alise> dbelange: of which google knows nothing
01:38:27 <lament> didn't someone have like chess in befunge
01:38:40 <dbelange> alise: Pfhortran
01:38:59 <dbelange> Anyway befunge is like a basic RPG
01:38:59 <Sgeo> Ah, it's a language designed for video game stuff
01:39:11 <Vorpal> [0x1d378b0] avcodec decoder error: more than 5 seconds of late video -> dropping frame (computer too slow ?)
01:39:13 <Vorpal> aaaargh
01:39:27 <Vorpal> *goes to sintel website and downloads lower res*
01:39:36 <Vorpal> still now I get way less than my monitor
01:40:15 <Sgeo> I haden't even heard of Sintel until a celebrity tweeted about it :/
01:40:18 <alise> <dbelange> Anyway befunge is like a basic RPG ;; what?
01:40:24 <alise> Sgeo: why do you follow celebrities
01:40:50 <Sgeo> ...not sure
01:40:56 <Sgeo> Felicia Day, to be specific
01:41:03 <Sgeo> Not someone like Brittany Spears
01:41:13 <Sgeo> Or whoever
01:41:14 <dbelange> alise: Well you have a man who moves
01:41:35 <dbelange> and there are registers (could be HP, gold, ....)
01:41:42 <dbelange> Maybe this is a better example http://alfedenzia.com/scuttle/scuttle.html
01:42:23 <oerjan> dbelange: i guess you _could_ ask the inventor cpressey if he was inspired by RPGs, he sometimes comes here
01:42:44 <dbelange> Oh ok
01:43:01 <dbelange> Im wondering mostly tonight though (lol) about making befunge into a game
01:43:13 <dbelange> or bringing out its Inner Game XD
01:43:16 <lament> there's that other languague
01:43:17 <Sgeo> I'd love it if someone just came in here and asked about PSOX
01:43:21 <lament> what was it called
01:43:24 <Sgeo> Grainfimple?
01:43:26 <lament> with mouses and cheese and stuff
01:43:30 <oerjan> well why not, we've already made brainfuck into a game at least twice :D
01:43:36 <Sgeo> Oh
01:43:50 <oerjan> lament: Hunter?
01:43:55 <lament> Hunter, yes
01:44:11 <Sgeo> I'm partial to Taxi
01:44:20 <Sgeo> When it comes to those sort of langs
01:44:28 <dbelange> So like increment is treasure chest, decrement is orcs, ... etc
01:44:30 <lament> dbelange: http://catseye.tc/projects/hunter/doc/website_hunter.html
01:44:55 <oerjan> ah yes same author too
01:45:42 <alise> i am pretty sure dbelange is just fucking with us.
01:46:10 <dbelange> :(

01:48:11 <dbelange> have you read the Diamond Age
01:49:28 -!- bavarious has joined.
01:50:03 <dbelange> Any way I think that a computer game that teaches kids to think in terms of universal machines (TM or s-exps say) would be beneficial no?
01:50:36 <dbelange> I think most games that have been made with this goal in mind have only done regular languages or SOMETIMES context-free
01:51:21 * oerjan is reminded of http://worrydream.com/AlligatorEggs/
01:51:48 <Sgeo> Is Taxi TC?
01:52:52 * Sgeo would love to see turing machines kidified
01:53:02 <dbelange> so for a regular language you might have robot games, or a tower defence
01:53:50 <dbelange> but I think a 2d TM or stack-based thing (like befunge) where registers are HP or caches of trasure
01:54:00 <dbelange> and decrementers are orcs and traps
01:54:18 <dbelange> would be beneficial to kids learning to think
01:55:03 <Sgeo> But decrement isn't evil
01:55:17 <dbelange> it is if the stack is empty rofl
01:58:56 <lament> rofl ololo
02:00:11 <Vorpal> Sgeo, wrt sintel: meh, not what I expected

02:04:19 <Vorpal> lament, nasty thing you did there
02:04:20 <augur> so thats 100% of the channel still, then, ey?
02:04:58 <dbelange> what
02:05:05 <Vorpal> dbelange, also pop on empty stack in befunge is just pop 0. If that is what you meant.
02:05:25 <Vorpal> anything on empty stack acts as if it popped 0
02:05:31 <dbelange> well ok
02:05:36 <pikhq> Lé sigh. US poverty rates hit 14% of the population.
02:05:38 <dbelange> then how do you die
02:05:49 <Vorpal> pikhq, I read that as "USB poverty" first XD
02:05:53 <augur> pikhq: hooray!
02:06:04 <lament> puberty rates
02:06:06 <Vorpal> dbelange, um you mean exit? @
02:06:20 <Vorpal> dbelange, or in befunge-98 you can use q, which pops an exit code
02:06:34 <Vorpal> both befunge93 and befunge98 has @
02:06:35 <dbelange> no I think some crash would be better
02:06:37 <Vorpal> which takes no parameter
02:06:41 <Vorpal> parameters*
02:06:44 <dbelange> befunge must have bugs
02:06:46 <lament> http://www.lifein19x19.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2004
02:07:03 <Vorpal> dbelange, hopefully not, since I maintain a befunge-98 implementation
02:07:39 <Vorpal> dbelange, anyway, you might want to design a fungoid then
02:08:58 <dbelange> No I don't want to build it from the ground "up"
02:10:18 <dbelange> I just think with the proper interpertation and tileset (or diablo style gfx) it would be useful
02:10:23 <Vorpal> eh
02:10:25 <Vorpal> what
02:10:37 <Vorpal> tileset?
02:10:39 <Vorpal> huh
02:10:51 <oerjan> for graphics...
02:10:51 <Vorpal> you plan on displaying the running program?
02:10:53 <Vorpal> interesting
02:11:02 <Sgeo> You'd also want an implementation that displays ongoing internals probably
02:11:13 <Vorpal> what is wrong with ASCII graphics?
02:11:25 <Sgeo> Kids might not like it, I guess
02:11:35 <dbelange> Vorpal have you read the Diamond Age
02:11:38 <Vorpal> also how do you display ongoing internals? Befunge-98 has at least 2^32 * 2^23
02:11:41 <Vorpal> for the funge space
02:11:45 <Vorpal> you can't display that
02:11:47 <Vorpal> you just can't
02:11:52 <dbelange> the key is to slowly develop it more and more so that at first it's like 3d
02:11:57 <dbelange> but then it is ascii
02:12:04 <dbelange> and then it is 1010101
02:12:09 <Vorpal> I never heard of "diamond age"
02:12:11 <Sgeo> I meant the stack (there's a stack, right?)
02:12:30 <lament> dbelange: and then it's just 0000000
02:12:42 <dbelange> The display is centered on the player, liek diablo
02:12:42 <lament> and then it's just Om
02:12:48 <oerjan> um i think for this limiting fungespace to screen size is ok. or maybe panning...
02:13:00 <dbelange> or ultima
02:13:31 <oerjan> dbelange: there are a number of avid nethack players in the channel
02:13:44 <dbelange> what is nethack
02:13:57 <Vorpal> ....
02:14:18 <Vorpal> I seem to remember reading that diablo was inspired by nethack
02:14:35 <oerjan> a 2d game with ascii graphics, afaiu. but otherwise very complicated.
02:14:40 <dbelange> Probably the other way around, diablo is pretty old
02:14:47 <dbelange> like the oldest
02:14:49 <Vorpal> dbelange, no. nethack is older
02:14:54 <Vorpal> dbelange, 1980s
02:15:17 <Vorpal> still developed of course
02:15:22 <Vorpal> for some values of developed
02:15:24 <coppro> lol dbelange
02:15:46 <alise> coppro, our inside man
02:15:54 <Vorpal> coppro, yeah that last comment basically made me label him mentally as "newbie and/or troll"
02:15:55 <pikhq> Nethack's 10 years older than Diablo.
02:15:56 <alise> exposing the true nature of the criminals
02:16:33 <alise> Vorpal: /msg about the fish plan
02:16:45 <pikhq> Diablo's not even the oldest game *from Blizzard*.
02:17:03 <dbelange> It says nethack was released in 2003??
02:17:12 <Vorpal> dbelange, last version of it
02:17:12 <alise> dbelange: try 1987
02:17:15 <Vorpal> not the original version
02:17:17 <dbelange> Neither "1980s" nor "active developing"
02:17:25 <alise> NetHack is a single-player roguelike video game originally released in 1987. It is a descendant of an earlier game called Hack (1985), which is a descendant of Rogue (1980).[2] Salon describes it as "one of the finest gaming experiences the computing world has to offer."[2]
02:17:36 <alise> and it's really just a modified Hack, which is 1982
02:17:43 <dbelange> 1985
02:17:48 <alise> no
02:17:52 <alise> Hack was created in 1982 by Jay Fenlason with the assistance of Kenny Woodland, Mike Thome, and Jonathan Payne. A greatly extended version was posted on Usenet in 1984 by Andries Brouwer. It is licensed under a 3-clause BSD-like license.[1]
02:17:58 <alise> 1985 is the release of Hack that NetHack is based on
02:17:59 <dbelange> It is a descendant of an earlier game called Hack (1985),
02:18:14 <Sgeo> NetHack doesn't really center on the character. YOu know what does? Crawl
02:18:19 <Sgeo> alise hates me now
02:18:19 <alise> Hack (1982) --> another Hack release (1985) --> NetHack (1987) --> ... -> NetHack (2003)
02:18:25 <alise> dbelange: ^ i drew you a nice diagram
02:18:42 <dbelange> Fine, so now that you're done arguing about things that dont matter
02:18:45 <coppro> I find it difficult to believe that anyone with a taurine host hasn't heard of nethack
02:18:46 <dbelange> how about Befunge??
02:18:49 <Sgeo> Then again, the levels in NetHack aren't freakishly huge
02:18:55 <pikhq> And Hack's more an improvement on Rogue, which is from 1980.
02:19:28 <coppro> moreover, I find it much easier to believe that a CSCer is trolling
02:20:16 <alise> coppro: yes, but drawing diagrams is fun
02:20:19 <alise> so why not?
02:20:29 <alise> pikhq: hack's a total other game :P
02:20:31 <lament> ha ha dbelange
02:20:32 <dbelange> Set --> Grp --> Fag
02:20:44 <lament> you're in a club the membership in which implies you know Nethack
02:20:50 <alise> dbelange just set his groping option to fag
02:20:58 <pikhq> Hawt.
02:21:00 <alise> discuss
02:21:23 <oerjan> wait what is this Fag category
02:21:33 <dbelange> alise :: Fag --> Top
02:21:38 <Sgeo> -->
02:21:39 <oerjan> and what is the Grp --> Fag functor
02:21:40 <Sgeo> ??????
02:21:40 <alise> i was thinking categories there yeah
02:21:46 <alise> dbelange: is that meant to be haskell?
02:21:53 <Sgeo> WTF is --> ?????
02:22:01 <dbelange> it is a monad
02:22:02 <alise> wow it's actually quite fun to see Sgeo this confused

02:29:53 <alise> oerjan: most trolls are intelligent people pretending to be morons
02:30:11 <Vorpal> there are however a few morons that are trolls
02:30:18 <Vorpal> often rather failed ones
02:30:20 <alise> none are any good :P

05:08:03 <zzo38> What is ephemeral ontologists?
05:08:21 <Gregor> Presumably people who study short-lived things.
05:08:39 <pikhq> Or people who are short-lived studying things.
05:08:43 <Gregor> Or --- yeah :P
05:08:45 <zzo38> OK

06:14:21 <pikhq> My faith in humanity is dying.
06:14:56 <Gregor> "pinku" X-D
06:15:24 <pikhq> "kotoba" is Japanese for "word" and "chibi" is a slang term for a cutesy drawing style.
06:15:42 <pikhq> From "chiisai hito", I think.
06:15:44 <Gregor> What's actual-Japanese for pink?
06:15:52 <pikhq> pinku
06:16:09 <Gregor> Uhh, that's presumably an import from English. What's pre-English Japanese for pink then? >_>
06:16:39 <Gregor> D-8
06:16:40 <pikhq> tankôshoku
06:16:54 <Gregor> Is that just "light red" compressed or something?
06:17:19 <pikhq> Faint red color.
06:17:29 <pikhq> Or momoiro. Peach color.
06:17:43 <pikhq> Pinku is by far the most common, though.
06:17:58 <oerjan> momotaro
06:18:10 <pikhq> oerjan: Yes, same morpheme.
06:19:26 <pikhq> Also, I had to look up ones that weren't "pinku".
06:20:12 <oerjan> pinku shirtu, domo arigato
06:20:42 <pikhq> oerjan: pinku shâtsu wo kudasai; domo arigatô. I think you mean.
06:21:04 <pikhq> Erm, dômo arigatô.
06:21:08 <oerjan> POSSIBLY
06:21:49 <oerjan> especially if shâtsu is an english loanword
06:21:55 <pikhq> It is.
06:22:22 <pikhq> It refers to button-up shirts.
06:23:38 * oerjan shouldn't talk - the original word "kortbukser" is almost completely replaced by "shorts" in norwegian
06:23:40 <pikhq> Or perhaps you mean: hįnnku siȳâtu wo kutàsai; tồmo arikàtô.
06:25:05 * oerjan wouldn't know, you know
06:25:26 <pikhq> Or perhaps you mean "domo arigato, Mr. Robato".
06:26:19 <oerjan> CERTAINLY NOT

08:52:10 <Phantom_Hoover> At the moment.

11:31:38 <Vorpal> wtf is tdp?
11:31:50 <Vorpal> I googled and it seems IANA itself lists it as tdp too
11:31:59 <Vorpal> so not just a typo in my local copy
11:32:01 <yorick> Vorpal: because it's part of the dutch informatics olympiad :P

11:33:44 <Vorpal> yorick, or it could be a typo for either udp or tcp
11:33:54 <Vorpal> yorick, after all it is the only tdp port listed there

11:34:05 <Vorpal> that looks suspect
11:34:12 <yorick> it does
11:34:13 <Vorpal> one tdp and one udp
11:34:32 <yorick> the d is not far from the c
11:34:48 <Vorpal> yorick, assuming qwerty
11:35:03 <Vorpal> probably a safe assumption though
11:35:04 <yorick> most people have qwerty
11:36:31 <Phantom_Hoover> yorick, you know there's a huge table of constants on the esolangs wiki?
11:36:42 <Phantom_Hoover> If they're clever enough, they'll find that.

11:38:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Are you restricted beyond what passes for BF's spec?

11:44:31 <Vorpal> XD
11:45:35 <yorick> Phantom_Hoover: anything lower than 74
11:45:51 <Phantom_Hoover> For each number or in total?
11:46:04 <yorick> in total
11:46:14 <yorick> (the idea is to print a string "CodeCup")

11:48:13 <Vorpal> hm
11:48:53 <Vorpal> yorick, anyway there are obvious ways to make that shorter, due to the competition nature of the thing I won't help you with that though
11:49:09 <Phantom_Hoover> yorick, I can get 67,100,111 in 47 characters, but that's probably not enough.
11:50:15 <Phantom_Hoover> And that was just concatenating the wiki's constants.
11:50:45 <yorick> that gives 76
11:52:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Concatenating and reusing the C?
11:52:31 <Phantom_Hoover> And adding one for the e?
11:53:01 <Phantom_Hoover> And the p?
11:54:13 <Phantom_Hoover> So 'C'.>'o'.>'d'.+.<<.>>>'u'.<<+.
11:54:31 <yorick> I am reusing the C already
11:55:43 <yorick> but stop helping me
11:58:08 <Phantom_Hoover> Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him, Horatio!
11:59:51 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh, well. That only gets it down to 79.
12:02:58 * yorick should put an ignore on that line
12:03:42 <Phantom_Hoover> It's not even terribly good...
12:07:55 <yorick> I should somehow be able to take advantage of the fact that they are all one more than a multiple of 11
12:08:49 <Vorpal> indeed you should. And 11 is probably shorter as a a calculation of something else
12:09:30 <yorick> it isn't
12:09:45 <Vorpal> mhm
12:09:54 <yorick> +++++[>++<-]+ <-- that's 13
12:10:08 <yorick> well...its size is 13, it calculates 11
12:10:25 <yorick> +++[>+++<-]++ <-- that's also 13
12:14:33 <fizzie> There is that list of constants at http://esolangs.org/wiki/Brainfuck_constants but of course for a longer string it most likely is not sensible to just concatenate those.
12:16:09 <fizzie> The text generator used by the bot can do it in 73 characters with the "-t 3" flag and no newline.
12:20:31 <fizzie> (I sure hope I didn't accidentally help.)
12:21:45 * yorick will not look at the textgenerator
12:21:49 <yorick> and I already knew about the constants
12:27:14 <yorick> I also have it in 73 chars :/
12:32:10 <fizzie> The text generator is limited to programs of that very simple form, so it's not going to figure out anything very clever. (No nested loops or anything.)

12:33:02 <Phantom_Hoover> So last night effectively never was.
12:33:35 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, um, it fetches from clog afaik
12:33:41 <Vorpal> it is just his way to store clog data
12:33:53 <Phantom_Hoover> Are there no other logs?
12:34:06 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, your own client may log
12:34:11 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, same goes for your bouncer
12:34:20 <fizzie> I don't know of any other public logs.
12:34:22 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, maybe time to set up something yourself?
12:34:42 <Phantom_Hoover> I'm interested in the logs from when I was offline and my computer off.
12:34:53 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, so use a bouncer on a vps :P
12:35:10 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, do you have one of these?
12:35:37 <fizzie> Spare no expense! What's more important, your next lunch or adequate #esoteric log coverage?
12:35:43 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, a VPS? No. Or rather: depends. Not for general use though, and I have my own bouncer on a server on my lam
12:36:10 <Vorpal> but there are reasonable free public shell services. A few at least.
12:36:15 <Phantom_Hoover> Do you have logs for last night, and will you give them to me?
12:36:46 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, 1) yes I have them 2) why should I, you have been acting like a jerk towards me most of the time
12:36:52 <fizzie> Didn't you go through this already? At least I think I saw something like that in the logs.
12:37:04 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, I'll reform!
12:37:47 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, why should I trust you? ehird has too much influence over you. And he promised similar things in the past for me providing some info only I had....
12:37:54 <Vorpal> and um that didn't exactly work out well
12:38:05 <fizzie> Phantom_Hoover: Here's an idea: reform as a cube.

12:39:40 <fizzie> Phantom_Cuber: You should put that in your CV, that's a really nice way of putting it.
12:39:53 <fizzie> "I'm not that much of a jerk." Definite hiring potential.

13:59:09 <Zuu> so what does this give: ++++++++[>++[->++++++<<]>><<]>>.>+>++.<.>++++----. ?
14:01:48 <yorick> it gives 0x7 0x2 0x7 0x2
14:02:07 <Zuu> Pretty close, eh?
14:02:16 <Zuu> :P
14:03:04 <Zuu> Thats probably my first and last attempt at writing anything that remotely resembles BF source

15:02:15 <Zuu> ok
15:03:20 <Zuu> cant say my attempt was very honest since i really just took what you pasted, and removed random characters :P
15:04:27 <yorick> heh
15:05:40 <yorick> are genetic algorithms any great for bf code generation?
15:05:56 <quintopia> PROBABLY NOT
15:06:31 <yorick> WHY NOT?
15:07:27 <quintopia> languages that work well for local search techniques for problem solving are ones that have a semi-continuous solution space
15:07:55 <quintopia> the subset of BF including +,-,., and , have this property
15:07:57 <Zuu> While it might not work well for BF i think it works far better for BF than so so many other languages
15:08:15 <quintopia> the whole [] construct doesn't really
15:08:51 -!- alise has joined.
15:09:23 <alise> Soooo...
15:09:28 <alise> Anyone have a copy of the logs?
15:10:19 <yorick> quintopia: a testrun of http://code.google.com/p/bf-code-generation/ reveals that you are right
15:10:25 <Zuu> its just a amtter of transforming the loop construct into a [[[[[[[[[ construct, where the number of ['s tells how many of the following characters are supposed to be looped
15:10:33 <quintopia> alise: i was in the room, but i may or may not have logged it >.>
15:11:17 <Zuu> i dont know what the < and > means in bf though
15:11:19 <quintopia> zuu: you mean a bounded loop?
15:11:33 <quintopia> so that only primitive recursive functions can be generated?
15:11:54 <Zuu> quintopia, no its simply a syntactical change
15:12:10 <quintopia> well, i mean, that's cool and all, most biological computers (people for instance) can only compute primitive recursive functions anyway. . .
15:12:30 <quintopia> oh i get it
15:12:32 <Zuu> aaa[xxxxxx]bbb would be written aaa[[[[[[[xxxxxxbbb
15:12:36 <quintopia> you're dropping the ]
15:13:03 <quintopia> yeah, i don't think that changes anything really about the difficulty of GA on it
15:13:14 <quintopia> well
15:13:19 <quintopia> it may make it slightly better
15:13:28 * alise sends off an email to Faré
15:13:34 <alise> asking him to restart clog
15:15:07 <quintopia> is clog supposed to be more a pun on what happens to drains or shoes that make sounds?
15:15:24 <alise> i think the former.
15:15:46 <alise> knowing Faré's political opinions he'll probably ask me to pay for the restart ;)
15:16:17 <quintopia> alise: i have about 24 hours worth of logs for sure. you want anything recent?
15:16:41 <alise> quintopia: every line after
15:16:41 <alise> 14:25:25 * Sgeo murders Flash
15:16:41 <alise> 14:25:39 <ais523> I think the stdlib version loops once per bit
15:16:43 <alise> (yesterday)
15:16:47 <alise> (those timestamps may be wrong for you)
15:16:51 <alise> to when I joined would be nice :)
15:16:58 <quintopia> okiedoke
15:17:01 <alise> to reconstruct the timeline later if I ever get around to creating a full log DB
15:17:01 <alise> thanks
15:19:53 <quintopia> you were in the chan until midnight my time. don't you have logs of that?
15:20:22 <alise> oh, true
15:20:31 <alise> quintopia: i left the channel a few times accidentally though
15:21:02 <alise> loading this 2.6 mb log file is fun
15:21:32 <alise> quintopia: yeah, okay, I only need my quit to my join
15:21:35 <alise> thanks :)
15:21:38 <Zuu> Hehe
15:21:45 <Zuu> whops wrong window
15:22:58 <yorick> http://pastebin.com/UVXyzY2t <-- is this really horrible? it generates BF code from desired-string input :)
15:23:59 <quintopia> I actually have a full log of this channel for the entire time i've been here
15:24:11 <alise> yorick: how does that work for sufficiently big numbers?
15:24:15 <quintopia> but i have a file containing just the last 24 hours for you here...
15:24:18 <quintopia> where shall i send it?
15:24:24 <alise> quintopia: filebin.ca?
15:24:28 <quintopia> kk
15:24:33 <alise> thanks
15:24:45 <alise> the timestream must be preserved!
15:24:47 <yorick> alise: it generates code wrong a string between "A"-"z"
15:24:53 <yorick> so no need for anything bigger
15:25:08 <alise> yorick: oh.
15:25:12 <alise> boring :P
15:25:33 <alise> it should totally use dynamic programming or something!
15:26:17 <yorick> alise: it should, that's part 3 of the challenge :P

15:27:17 <alise> yorick: shouldn't you be coding :)
15:27:22 <alise> quintopia: groan @ filename
15:27:35 <alise> quintopia: 10:23 < alise> oerjanerer ;; you know, i have all that logged
15:27:41 <yorick> alise: just finished part 2...still thinking/planning

15:28:42 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
15:28:53 <quintopia> alise: with irssi, it's easier to just dump the entire scrollback buffer to a file
15:28:53 <yorick> part one was make a normal bf code generator, part 2 was make something small yourself, part 3 is make a size-optimizing code generator
15:29:01 <alise> ah
15:29:09 <alise> quintopia-2010-10-02-03; what a terrible filename
15:29:30 <alise> ideally some day I'll get a hold of Vorpal's private logs and merge them with the clog ones :P
15:29:36 <quintopia> a log of our PMs?
15:29:43 <alise> no
15:29:45 <alise> that txt
15:29:51 <alise> (furalise)
15:29:58 <alise> i'm too anal to not give it a meaningful name!
15:30:35 <quintopia> what is the 03 at the end for?
15:30:37 <quintopia> oh
15:30:42 <quintopia> the 2nd to the 3rd
15:30:43 <quintopia> i get it

15:37:03 * yorick goes looking for something on dynamic programming
15:37:25 <alise> yorick: does it really say dynamic programming?
15:37:32 <alise> i was joking, but i guess it could help
15:37:43 <alise> yorick: genetic programming is usually what is done for this
15:37:48 <alise> !bf_txtgen poop
15:37:57 <alise> !bf_textgen yorick

15:38:13 <yorick> alise: it just says "write something that generates a size-optimized bf-code for a random string"
15:38:35 <yorick> alise: I looked at genetic programming, it appears to be horrible
15:38:38 <alise> yorick: genetic programming will help a ton. dynamic programming won't. the above uses genetic programming, so does everything else
15:38:40 <alise> that's all i'll say :)
15:38:57 <alise> yorick: oh, you don't, like, genetically program from nothing to the string
15:39:15 <alise> i think you start with a regular RLE'd one, and then start mutating that in ways that make it smaller
15:39:17 <alise> i could be totally wrong though
15:39:20 <alise> so maybe ignore me
15:39:34 * yorick will look into that
15:39:48 <alise> yorick: i'd link you to the one egobot uses but *uh* pretty sure that's against your rules
15:40:13 <quintopia> i should think a dynamic programming solution would do pretty well...
15:40:22 <alise> 03:44 < coppro> crap
15:40:24 <yorick> does it use the java thing?
15:40:30 <alise> quoted for prosperity
15:40:35 <alise> yorick: uhh, yes, it does use some sort of java thing
15:40:51 <yorick> does it use the "bf-code-generation" java thing?
15:41:01 <alise> i don't know; however i can link you.
15:41:10 <yorick> then it's not it :)
15:41:20 <yorick> the link would contain it
15:41:30 <alise> yorick: no -- egobot has its own copy of everything.

15:41:43 <alise> there's the code
15:41:58 <alise> no, wait, just .class :D
15:42:04 <alise> yorick: i distinctly recall it was in a cvs repository
15:42:07 <alise> but it *could* have just evolved into that

15:44:12 <alise> ask Gregor
15:44:12 <alise> :P
15:44:23 <alise> i'm not sure how dynamic programming would help.
15:44:43 <yorick> alise: I found the .java already :/
15:44:59 <alise> yorick: ohh, right, it's .java
15:45:02 <alise> i was thinking .class
15:45:05 <alise> sorry, i'm dumb :)
15:45:23 <alise> 03:49 < Phantom_Hoover> Wait, doesn't one of Gregor's bots keep logs?
15:45:28 <alise> no, that just mirrors clog
15:45:42 <alise> 04:17 < Vorpal> if you don't have them: your own issue
15:45:42 <alise> 04:18 < Vorpal> I could of course share mine, but why
15:45:48 <alise> "*that* would decrease my average overall snottiness!"
15:45:53 <yorick> meh @ java
15:46:32 <alise> yorick: that has nothing to do with the algorithm :P
15:46:56 <yorick> alise: it makes it about 28% less readable
15:47:00 <alise> 04:59 < Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, if coppro wants the logs I will paste the link in the channel.
15:47:00 <alise> 04:59 < Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, but I see no point in helping you, you seem to hate me usually.
15:47:05 <alise> it's that time of month again for Vorpal!
15:47:09 <alise> yorick: than *C*?
15:47:22 <alise> at least it doesn't have any malloc()s, sure Java is ridiculously verbose, but you should easily be able to figure out the algorithm
15:47:22 <yorick> alise: than *python*
15:47:28 <alise> yorick: oh, i thought that C was yours
15:47:32 <alise> Python is lame :P
15:47:33 <yorick> alise: it is too
15:47:45 <alise> (note: I hate Java, C and Python, so you cannot rebut >_>)
15:47:53 <yorick> C++!
15:54:05 <alise> yorick: congratulations, that's the worst language you've named so far! :D
15:54:34 <yorick> alise: javascript!
15:55:05 <alise> yorick: is fucked up in strange ways. But at least it's based on Scheme..
15:55:19 <yorick> true :)

16:34:33 <yorick> are people in this channel generally emotionally instable?
16:35:41 <Vorpal> yorick, only a few of them
16:36:08 <yorick> Vorpal: does that include you?
16:36:38 <Vorpal> yorick, well personally I don't think so, or at least there are far worse people in here.
16:36:49 <Vorpal> yorick, rather it is that I and alise don't get along at all
16:37:06 <alise> yorick: no no it's very simple
16:37:09 <alise> everyone in here is cool except Vorpal ;)
16:37:15 <yorick> Vorpal: I see
16:37:50 <Vorpal> I would say instead that everyone in here apart from alise, and to some degree phantom_hoover, are cool
16:42:19 <Vorpal> alise, besides you don't get along with Quad*r*e*scence (* to avoid highlight), and a few more people. So your statement was exaggerated presumably
16:42:47 <alise> he's just a troll. and never talks.

16:51:21 <oerjan> < Vorpal> not sure about dumping scrollback though <-- i did manage to do that and start logging into the same file once, but it was a pain i thought
16:52:50 <oerjan> two different commands, and not a common format for choosing a file i think
16:55:20 <oerjan> < yorick> how many have come here this week asking for the smallest way to initialize cells in brainfuck to 67, 100 and 111? <-- we have a wiki page for that, brainfuck constants
16:56:12 <oerjan> the wrapping versions are afaik minimal
16:56:54 <yorick> oerjan: I have found my solution already :)
16:57:15 <yorick> oerjan: and I know about the wiki page, needed something smaller
16:58:25 <oerjan> oh you mean to initialize to all three at once? i guess that might be smaller than combining the separate algorithms.

17:05:05 <yorick> (that's the next one)
17:05:23 <oerjan> ok
17:06:32 * alise decides to enable viewing window contents when resizing, this *is* 2010...
17:07:40 <yorick> alise: my windows actually scale while resizing
17:07:52 <yorick> and change size when done
17:07:52 <myndzi> hee, i still have that option off
17:08:00 <alise> yorick: i tried that once, it was godawful
17:08:10 <alise> it makes you *think* you have some perception of what it'll look like and you decide how to resize it based on that
17:08:11 <alise> but then OOPS NO
17:08:27 <alise> X11 really sucks at resizing though, especially with browsers
17:08:30 <alise> it's quite pathetic
17:09:07 <alise> of course with real resizing the window border flashes. lol.
17:09:21 <oerjan> < yorick> but stop helping me <-- IT'S IN OUR BLOOD
17:09:24 <alise> Linux graphics: Think you know how much it sucks? Nope! More than that!
17:09:37 <yorick> oerjan: but then I'll have cheated :/
17:09:51 <alise> no, no, just credit us as ... creative assistants!
17:10:15 <alise> oerjan: I like how helping people is the deep, dark, horrible flaw in our blood.
17:10:22 <yorick> alise: I cannot actually do that :/
17:10:27 <alise> yorick: we're joking :)
17:11:00 <yorick> the actual live resizing is horrible :)
17:11:00 <oerjan> alise: IT'S NOT PROPER CAPITALISM. well unless we charge i guess.
17:11:33 <alise> yorick: only on X11 :P
17:11:39 <yorick> alise: true
17:11:50 <alise> and that's just because X11 is the most hilariously 80s thing ever dreamt of
17:12:08 <yorick> also true
17:12:08 <quintopia> more hilariously 80s than back to the future?
17:12:13 <alise> let's buy one million dollar server and five gajillion $5 monitors and keyboards!
17:12:18 <alise> and NETWORK!
17:12:30 <oerjan> it cannot be much of an olympiad if you're actually capable of _contacting the outside world_ during the contest...
17:12:31 <yorick> alise: but it has nice ssh forwarding :)
17:12:33 <alise> quintopia: well. in software :P
17:12:36 <quintopia> more hilariously 80s than everything about the show "everybody hates chris"?
17:12:41 <yorick> oerjan: this is just the first round
17:12:43 <alise> yorick: yeaah but toolkits should do that really
17:12:50 <alise> if it just sent down gtk messages and local gtk rendered it
17:12:52 <alise> it'd be much nicer
17:12:56 <quintopia> alise: tell that to my old TRS-80 games :D
17:13:04 <alise> quintopia: fine! late 80s!
17:13:20 <yorick> alise: but then you'd need _toolkits_
17:13:24 <alise> <oerjan> it cannot be much of an olympiad if you're actually capable of _contacting the outside world_ during the contest... ;; "We will now seal you inside a Faraday cage. There will be no food."
17:13:34 <alise> yorick: because you program in pure X-over-socket? :)
17:13:46 <yorick> alise: possibly!
17:14:06 <quintopia> that sounds like a brilliant set up
17:14:10 <quintopia> except for the food thing
17:14:28 <yorick> I'll still need power
17:14:37 <yorick> and then I'll secretly DLAN over it :/
17:14:48 <alise> yorick: no, no, you get a hole in the wall with a computer in it
17:15:02 <yorick> alise: I'll hack the computer!
17:15:03 <alise> just a keyboard -- without those pesky unneeded F keys and the like -- and a monitor, running only a compile/run button and an editor
17:15:09 <alise> plus some paper on the wall telling you what to do
17:15:13 <alise> good luck getting past that
17:15:24 <alise> oh yeah and it's all baked into the wall so you can't get any of it out
17:15:31 <yorick> it's the part that allows you to run your own code :)
17:15:39 <alise> yorick: in a qemu VM
17:15:44 <alise> :)
17:15:47 <alise> with no devices
17:15:56 <yorick> qemu has been proven unsafe
17:16:02 <alise> yorick: qemu inside virtualbox inside ...
17:16:04 <alise> without virtualisation
17:16:11 <alise> oh yeah and the editor is custom and only supports arrow keys, backspace/delete, and typing
17:16:38 <yorick> I somehow don't think this is gonna happen
17:23:06 <oerjan> * Zuu mixes in some chemicals in an attempt to neutralize the solution
17:24:03 <oerjan> you probably want to make it precipitate
17:25:55 * quintopia mixes in some chemicals to precipitate the solution
17:28:12 <oerjan> well it _could_ be he doesn't mind solutions, as long as they're not too basic
17:28:16 <alise> coppro: ping
17:28:56 * quintopia freezes the solution with LN?
17:29:01 <quintopia> *LN2
17:29:22 <quintopia> apparently 2-subscript is unicode. I don't transmit unicode.
17:34:34 <alise> why not?
17:34:38 <alise> the rest of us do
17:34:55 <alise> pikhq: You know you're anal when you decode FLAC files just to re-encode them with --best.
17:38:31 -!- Kordalien has joined.
17:39:21 <alise> pikhq: ...how the hell is this .flac file smaller than a --best re-encoding?
17:42:01 <oerjan> alise: ALIEN TECHNOLOGY
17:42:08 <oerjan> it's the only possible answer
17:43:31 <quintopia> does there exist a turing-complete language in which a program's inverse is just that program written backwards? is that even possible?
17:43:50 <oerjan> quintopia: Kayak comes close
17:44:36 <alise> quintopia: i thought about that once.
17:44:48 <alise> oerjan: only close?
17:44:58 <alise> because we don't know whether it's TC or not?
17:45:14 <oerjan> you also have to switch to the other matching bracket
17:45:19 <alise> ah
17:45:25 <Phantom_Cuber> Should I continue trying to wrestle with DCGs?
17:45:28 <alise> that's fixable, surely?
17:45:29 <alise> Phantom_Cuber: yes
17:45:33 <alise> Phantom_Cuber: they're jawesome
17:45:36 <alise> *jawsome
17:45:47 <Phantom_Cuber> They are, but they're rather irritating.
17:46:07 <oerjan> well yeah you could have a matching system where ) ... ( and ( ... ) are both possible
17:46:20 <quintopia> alise: it's easily fixable in fact. just make it so that at the top level either ordering is equivalent
17:46:21 <oerjan> but i don't recall that kayak does that
17:46:33 <alise> quintopia: how, with nesting?
17:46:35 <alise> oh, hm
17:46:37 <alise> but
17:46:42 <alise> (foo )bar( quux)
17:46:43 <quintopia> of course, once below the top level, you have to use the convention you chose at the top level
17:46:46 <alise> you need whitespace-sensitivity :D
17:46:53 <alise> like nopol
17:46:57 <alise> did that with <> and ><
17:47:06 <oerjan> alise: the first ) matches the previous ( because there _is_ a previous ( to match, simply
17:47:14 <alise> oerjan: right.
17:47:25 <alise> http://www.vjn.fi/oklopol/nopol.txt unfortunately lacks any examples
17:47:34 <alise> hmm wait that ><> ending sequence might have one
17:47:35 <alise> maybe not
17:47:46 <Phantom_Cuber> Has Burro been mentioned yet?
17:47:55 <quintopia> Burro doesn't qualify
17:48:17 <Phantom_Cuber> It doesn't, but it's relevant.
17:48:17 <quintopia> is Kayak TC?
17:48:33 <oerjan> kayak is TC iirc. but not all programs actually _halt_, in which case reversing it isn't really _that_ meaningful
17:48:40 <alise> jesus, it would be easier to buy the fucking single and extract the track off at this point
17:48:56 <alise> "kayak is TC iirc. but not all programs actually _halt_"
17:48:59 <alise> oerjan: there is no tc tag on the page
17:49:01 <alise> i imagine it is unknown
17:49:10 <alise> "kayak is TC iirc. but not all programs actually _halt_" <-- just love the redundancy of this
17:49:14 <quintopia> oerjan: well, that's good enough. We only care about reversibility for halting computations.
17:49:38 <oerjan> also you sometimes need to include a bit bucket for tossing information into, if two inputs give the same output
17:49:53 <quintopia> which is something any reversible TC language requires
17:49:56 <alise> quintopia: it could ununhalt unforever!
17:50:01 <quintopia> a place to store unnecessary information
17:50:06 <Phantom_Cuber> oerjan, Burro manages TCness with antiprograms.
17:50:23 <quintopia> because all function have to be bijections for invertibility to make sense
17:51:39 <quintopia> but "the set of all functions with finite output" is equivalent to "the set of all bijections, possibly with some of the output discarded"
17:52:39 <quintopia> errr.. . ."finite output" should probably be "output sized as a function of input size"...
17:55:07 <quintopia> one thing i don't like about kayak (and other reversible languages like befreak) is they include arbitrary rules just to force reversibility
17:55:22 <quintopia> like "In addition, code must result in an empty temporary register when the structure is exited."
17:56:03 <quintopia> it would be nice if the limitations on the language fell out of the semantics of provided instructions rather than externally imposed limitations.
17:56:32 <oerjan> yeah
17:57:19 * oerjan once pondered how to do reversible jumps in a way that didn't depend on a jump target having to be a jump itself
17:57:38 <quintopia> Phantom_Cuber: Burro has some neat constructs, but reversible brainfuck pulled off the whole "set of programs form a group under concatenation" thing better IMO
17:58:20 <quintopia> oerjan: is it possible?
17:58:25 <alise> i love how
17:58:26 <oerjan> that's similar. i thought you could have jump flag, which was toggled by the jump instruction. if the target wasn't an instruction toggling the jump flag, the machine would just _keep on_ jumping
17:58:27 <alise> f(x) = x+y
17:58:28 <alise> and
17:58:30 <alise> f(x) = x-y
17:58:32 <alise> erm
17:58:34 <alise> f(x,y) = x+y
17:58:35 <alise> and
17:58:36 <alise> f(x,y) = x-y
17:58:38 <alise> don't count as "reversible"
17:58:39 <alise> but
17:58:43 <alise> f(x,y) = (x+y, x-y)
17:58:43 <alise> does
17:58:45 <oerjan> it could even have a delay for pipelining
17:59:29 <oerjan> a sort of "you cannot change the jump countdown if it is between -N and N"
17:59:37 <oerjan> and at 0 you jump
17:59:42 <quintopia> alise: or f(x,y)=(x,x+y) or (y,x+y)
17:59:56 <alise> quintopia: yeah
18:00:24 <quintopia> oerjan: i'm not following
18:00:44 <oerjan> quintopia: the simple version with just a flag, or the pipelining version?
18:01:08 <quintopia> i'm guessing the flag thing is like unto Burro's implicit loop?
18:01:13 <quintopia> explain better
18:01:14 <quintopia> :D
18:01:17 <oerjan> that could be
18:01:33 <alise> now if i buy the single, i need a usb optical drive
18:01:55 <quintopia> usb optical drives r p cool dewds
18:02:13 <quintopia> oh wait
18:02:14 <alise> yeah but this is all for the sake of having a flac version rather than mp3 :)
18:02:21 <oerjan> you'd have a program counter as usual, and then a jump destination register. if at the end of an instruction the jump flag is set, then those two registers are switched
18:02:21 <alise> and
18:02:22 <alise> 1 new from £76.95
18:02:24 <alise> never mind!
18:02:29 <alise> (that's for a SINGLE! on CD!)
18:02:35 <alise> (HOW)
18:02:39 <quintopia> you mean like a jump with offset instead of a jump to destination directly?
18:02:57 <oerjan> it doesn't have to be an offset
18:03:13 <oerjan> it _could_ be that instead, of course
18:03:13 <quintopia> oh i see
18:03:51 <quintopia> so you store the destination to jump back to in your main register before toggling the jump flag
18:04:03 <oerjan> yeah
18:04:21 <quintopia> what makes that reversible?
18:04:26 <oerjan> er minus the "back"
18:04:51 <oerjan> oh and the jump flag is _not_ toggled by the jumping itself
18:04:59 <oerjan> that's essential for reversibility
18:05:01 <alise> can someone *please* explain to me how on earth a CD single can cost £76.95 :)
18:05:35 <oerjan> but if the destination address contains an instruction toggling the jump flag, everything works as expected
18:06:03 <quintopia> hmm
18:06:11 <quintopia> hard to see what makes it reversible
18:06:15 <quintopia> what happens if it doesn't?
18:07:07 <oerjan> then after the destination instruction has been performed, since the jump flag is still set, the program counter and the destination register are switched _again_
18:07:58 <oerjan> you'd essentially keep jumping back and forth every other instruction until something toggles the flag, i think
18:08:20 <oerjan> (the usual increment of program counter would apply as well, of course)
18:09:05 <quintopia> so the jump jumps to what was in the dest register BEFORE or AFTER swapping?
18:09:24 <oerjan> you could also include a flag for reversing execution direction in this, that's useful for "cascades" which compute something, store the result then uncompute again to save memory
18:09:50 <oerjan> quintopia: AFTER swapping the program counter _is_ the old destination register
18:10:11 <oerjan> jumping is just changing the program counter, after all
18:10:24 <quintopia> so you're swapping the PC with the dest register
18:10:40 <quintopia> makes more sense
18:11:30 <quintopia> so what if i want to jump from A to B then from B+6 to C? how does that look in the reversed version?
18:13:21 <oerjan> well after unperforming instruction C, presumably the destination register will contain B+7, and the jump flag is set, so it is swapped with the PC, which is then decremented, the B+6 instruction un-unloaded, etc.
18:13:56 <oerjan> the B+6 instruction should toggle the flag, as should the B instruction
18:14:17 <oerjan> well all of those instructions mentioned need to toggle the flag
18:14:27 <quintopia> oh because they had to toggle it to begin with, they'll toggle it now too
18:14:32 <oerjan> yeah
18:14:34 <quintopia> yeah i think that works
18:14:40 <quintopia> so where's the language based on this?
18:14:52 <oerjan> nowhere, alas :D
18:15:01 <quintopia> EXACTLY
18:15:22 <quintopia> so what does the pipelined version do?
18:17:27 <oerjan> you'd have a jump preparation flag and a jump countdown register instead of just a jump flag
18:18:32 <oerjan> er call that jump countdown flag
18:19:08 <oerjan> while the JCF is set, the JCR is decremented after each instruction. when JCR=0 swap as above.
18:20:33 <oerjan> the pipelining is effected by some additional restrictions: you can only toggle the JCF when JCR is _outside_ some [-N,N] interval, and you can only change the JCR explicitly when the JCF is off, and never to a value in [-N,N]
18:21:10 <oerjan> this prevents all changing of scheduled jumps that are within a too short distance
18:22:46 <oerjan> whether this would be very useful is another question
18:22:49 <quintopia> so you write a program that knows when it is going to jump so that it can put the branch instruction into the pipeline in advance?
18:23:18 <oerjan> yeah, and so it can load instructions at the destination in advance as well
18:23:31 <oerjan> because it knows in good time when it will switch over
18:26:22 <oerjan> "bf2kayak.pl is a Brainfuck-to-Kayak compiler, written in Perl. I haven't tested it carefully, but it works with some simple programs. I hope this will resolve any lingering doubts as to the Turing-completeness of Kayak."
18:26:41 <oerjan> (from http://esoteric.voxelperfect.net/files/kayak/doc/kayak.html)
18:28:18 <oerjan> anyway, later
18:28:21 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: leaving).
18:32:16 -!- zzo38 has joined.
18:32:31 <zzo38> What is wrong with the log program?
18:33:02 <Phantom_Cuber> It died under mysterious circumstances.
18:33:16 <zzo38> Today's file is there, but empty.
18:34:40 <zzo38> Perhaps if they did it like how CthulhuIRCd does the log, it might work better, but I don't know for sure.
18:35:17 <zzo38> (i.e. on the server side)
18:35:42 <quintopia> http://filebin.ca/qfbjap/zzo38.txt this is the last ~24 hours
18:36:41 <zzo38> quintopia: Well, it is a bit different format than the clog
18:37:00 <zzo38> It is also a different timezone
18:37:38 <quintopia> well forgive me for not being perfect
18:37:48 <quintopia> it's eastern daylight time
18:37:52 <quintopia> convert it in your head
18:38:12 <zzo38> That's OK.
18:38:19 <zzo38> I am just mentioning that the format is different.
18:38:34 <quintopia> GMT-4 iirc
18:38:45 <quintopia> i mean
18:38:48 <quintopia> UTC-4
18:38:52 <quintopia> GMT-5
18:39:27 <zzo38> OK
18:39:55 <Phantom_Cuber> Is there an open-source APL-alike?
18:43:18 <zzo38> This is another kind of IRC log format (so that you will not get mixed up with timezones): http://zzo38computer.cjb.net/textfile/miscellaneous/SIRCL
18:43:49 <nooga> hahah
18:43:51 <quintopia> oh man
18:43:55 <quintopia> cjb
18:43:57 <quintopia> old school
18:44:28 <alise> quintopia: not that old school, they only offered redirection way back right?
18:44:34 <alise> whereas that points to zzo38's actual computer afaik
18:44:43 <alise> so dns
18:45:16 <quintopia> they've been doing dns for years too
18:46:01 <Phantom_Cuber> zzo38, incidentally, did anyone else express their displeasure with the addition of Dottyweb to articles?
18:46:31 <alise> i did
18:46:34 <alise> well
18:46:39 <alise> i dunno if i got around to saying so on the talk page
18:46:40 <zzo38> Phantom_Cuber: No. Nobody expressed anything about the addition of Dottyweb to articles. (Although I did put it in the summary text so that you can complain on the Talk page)
18:46:52 <alise> zzo38: can i be lazy and complain here?
18:47:21 <alise> i'd be fine with it if we had a discussion about it first and agreed on it
18:47:22 <zzo38> alise: You can, but that won't affect my decision unless you complain on the Talk page.
18:47:37 <alise> i'm not going to complain in one specific place just because you want me to...
18:47:42 <zzo38> And then we can have a proper discussion about it with everyone else on the wiki at any time.
18:48:03 <alise> generally the discussion comes before the change
18:48:11 <zzo38> alise: It does not have to be on a specific Talk page, just put your complaints in any wiki page that is relevant.
18:48:45 <Phantom_Cuber> zzo38, IRC is better for discussions.
18:49:12 <alise> i don't mind a discussion on the wiki, but i don't think i should have to initiate it, as i didn't make the changes
18:50:34 <zzo38> OK, I will initiate the discussion on the page of the wiki instead, though. http://esoteric.voxelperfect.net/wiki/Help_talk:Dottyweb
18:50:43 <zzo38> Is that sufficient?
18:50:54 <alise> Sure, I'll write some sort of reply.
18:51:01 <Phantom_Cuber> It should suffice.
18:51:41 <zzo38> OK
18:54:01 <alise> zzo38: I have added a comment, and so has Phantom_Cuber.
18:55:18 <coppro> alise: pong
18:55:43 <alise> coppro: am I in time for mathNEWS?
18:56:36 <coppro> yes
18:56:45 <alise> coppro: how long do I have? :P
18:56:49 <coppro> you have at least 30 more hours
18:57:28 <alise> coppro: oh, it's assembled on Monday, not Sunday?
18:57:39 <alise> i thought monday was just when you guys printed it or whatever
18:58:21 <coppro> Monday is the writing/proofing night, then the editors spend Tuesday doing layout and Wednesday it gets sent to the printer
18:58:27 <coppro> Friday it gets released
18:59:02 <alise> oh, that's much more time than I thought, then
18:59:17 <alise> I thought Sunday was a crazy day of proofing and layout and Monday it was sent to the printer, from what you said
18:59:41 <coppro> ah, no
19:00:39 <alise> did you get my link to the draft? i'm not sure whether i've got my crazyML right :)
19:00:41 <alise> (yesterday)
19:01:03 <zzo38> I will stop adding the {{.file| templates to things that I did not write myself. (If you think it should be removed from the other pages that I did not add it to, please do so yourself.)
19:01:11 <alise> zzo38: Okay.
19:01:59 <coppro> alise: I did, but I have not read it
19:02:06 <alise> OK.
19:02:08 <coppro> and I do not have time right now. I have to go sort boardgames
19:02:16 <alise> A mammoth task.
19:02:54 <coppro> indeed
19:08:58 <zzo38> I would like to know if there is any other IRC software that does channel log on the server.
19:09:41 <alise> zzo38: cmeme used to
19:09:43 <alise> but then it dieded
19:09:45 <alise> botte does
19:09:46 <alise> >_>
19:10:13 <Phantom_Cuber> lambdabot, not you, I suppose?
19:10:48 <alise> lambdabot doesn't; nor fungot or EgoBot or HackEgo
19:10:48 <fungot> alise: oh. what'd he want?
19:10:50 <alise> just clog and botte
19:11:11 <fizzie> I don't think any of those are IRC servers that do server-side logging, which is what I think was asked.
19:11:34 <Phantom_Cuber> Oh, look. TV Tropes continues its march towards formal bureaucracy.
19:11:35 <fizzie> Based on the earlier thing about CthulhuIRCd.
19:11:39 <fizzie> But I might misinterpret.

19:21:31 <quintopia> i will do it if two more people respond
19:21:58 <Phantom_Cuber> Typogenetics?
19:22:20 <Phantom_Cuber> I want to know what it is, so I suppose that's a "yes".
19:24:00 <Phantom_Cuber> OK, Nightmare Fuel is now classified as a subjective trope.
19:24:11 <Phantom_Cuber> i.e. it shouldn't be listed on the articles for works.

19:37:08 <Phantom_Cuber> Aaaah.
19:37:29 <alise> quintopia: oh that one
19:37:37 <alise> quintopia: also, many languages have no imperative element.
19:37:41 <alise> such as the lambda calculus
19:38:30 <quintopia> they usually have some implicit imperative element though
19:38:47 <alise> even if they don't...
19:38:48 <quintopia> like "evaluate this function by name"

19:39:32 <Phantom_Cuber> And is less than 40.
19:39:33 <quintopia> alise: no, but it is an imperative element of the universe in which the language finds itself
19:40:00 <quintopia> TNT on the other hand is in a universe purely dreamed of for the declaration and specification of theorems
19:40:03 <alise> Phantom_Cuber: Or is Eric S. Raymond.
19:40:13 <quintopia> not for the specification of algorithms to decide them

21:50:54 <Phantom_Cuber> Probably not.

23:13:05 <zzo38> How many mathematical symbols do you need to write whatever article you are writing? Computer Modern contains many, we probably don't need a lot of other ones, but some of the symbols in WEBMATH are I design that might be used in mathematics, such as blackboard bold, therefore sign, alternate empty set,
23:13:42 <zzo38> which others are common enough to include? Probably many can just be composed from overlapping and arranging other characters in Computer Modern and WEBMATH combined, using various commands in TeX.

23:43:10 <oerjan> he _could_ say he is fundamentally against the concept of punishment, the prosecutors would probably through him out :D

23:43:26 <oerjan> *throw
23:43:38 <pikhq> oerjan: No, I'm not actually selected for jury duty, I'm just hating how we go about choosing jurors.

23:44:22 <pikhq> Notable properties include that for any capital cases, jurors opposed to a death sentence are summarily removed from the jury pool.
23:44:27 -!- FireFly has joined.
23:44:41 <oerjan> ...that was sort of what i was alluding to
23:45:04 <pikhq> Keep in mind that we have a civil law system, wherein the jurors opinions *can in fact set law*.
23:45:30 <ais523> IIRC, you can refuse to accept the notion that the judge sets what information is and isn't admissable for the jury to hear
23:45:36 <ais523> as in, they ask you whether you accept that notion or not
23:45:45 <ais523> I'm not entirely sure what happens if you say no
23:45:50 <ais523> (this is in the US)
23:45:59 <pikhq> Also, being aware of jury nullification gets you thrown out.
23:46:43 <ais523> in the UK, jury selection's a lot more determined; they take the first 12 people selected at random, unless there's a really strong reason why they shouldn't judge that trial
23:46:50 <ais523> such as being related to one of the witnesses or defendants
23:46:54 <pikhq> ais523: See, that would be sane.
23:47:01 <ais523> or a member of a particular ancient order of lighthouse-keepers
23:47:27 <pikhq> But here, if you are aware that you can rule against the law & evidence because you find it unjust to do so, *you cannot be in a jury*.

23:49:03 <pikhq> If you personally try to inform a jury of this ability in court, *they have to select a new jury*.
23:49:07 <pikhq> It is so very fucked up.
23:49:31 <ais523> I've been following the SCO v Novell transcripts, one of them was of the jury selection
23:50:01 <pikhq> Makes a farce of the whole court system if you ask me.

23:52:01 <alise> <alise> pikhq: You cannot avoid your destiny ;; I mean the music
23:52:21 <pikhq> "n 2001, a California Supreme Court ruling on a case involving statutory rape led to a new jury instruction that requires jurors to inform the judge whenever a fellow panelist appears to be deciding a case based on his or her dislike of a law."
23:53:01 <pikhq> What the hell is the *point* of a jury if they cannot have an opinion on the law?
23:54:02 <ais523> pikhq: the law is written by lobbyists; a majority of 12 random people tend to not be lobbyists
23:54:08 <alise> pikhq: the US is a country based on ignoring its founding principles
23:54:12 <alise> the end
23:54:15 <ais523> thus they are not competent to decide what the law is
23:54:47 <cheater99> NO ALISE
23:54:56 <cheater99> USA is a country based on COGNITIVE DISSONANCE
23:55:05 <pikhq> ais523: Yeah, fuck the lobbyists with a chainsaw.
23:55:43 <Ilari> Satutory rape... That would be real good source of cases where "not guilty" verdict would be right thing to do.
23:57:26 <cheater99> what if it were your daughter
23:57:52 <pikhq> cheater99: You realise *statutory* rape is consensual sex, right?
23:57:59 <Ilari> That wouldn't change what was the right thing to do.
23:58:18 <cheater99> but children can't consent to sex
23:58:46 <pikhq> s/children/17 year and 364 day olds/ :P
23:59:05 <ais523> in the UK, they go to real lengths to protect the jurors
23:59:06 <Ilari> Might also get some talking to, but that's not matter of law.
23:59:14 <ais523> it's illegal to record their faces, for instance
23:59:51 <ais523> photography's banned in courtrooms; it is legal to make a /painting/ of a court in session, but the artist needs to arrange things such that the jurors' faces can't be seen, normally by conveniently putting a handrail or something in the way
23:59:58 <pikhq> ais523: So... You guys actually have juries as a matter of fact, rather than as a body to delegate the judge's opinion onto.
