00:07:09 <Phantom_Hoover> That is such a stupid way of phrasing it.

00:14:35 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover: For that matter, so is one. And zero.
00:14:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Gregor, yes, but you don't say "a number" in that case.
00:15:18 <Gregor> A number of people in this channel fail to realize the sheer degree of pedantry that is possible online.
00:17:46 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, it's almost as if people don't get that the aim of language is communication within the hazy and highly contextual environment of human thought, rather than a formal system.
00:18:15 <Gregor> One might even say that a number of people don't get that.

00:52:17 <elliott> you BELONG IN THERE
00:52:56 <oklopol> asking makes more sense because by adding "2" makes it a perfectly valid english sentence asking if you'd like her to call, but i see no way to make it a sentence *telling* you she'll call

01:16:50 <oklopol> you answer that, and i'll start working on norwegians
01:18:35 <TeruFSX> I'd assume most apples and Norweigans smell about the same.
01:19:14 <oklopol> obviously i mean what apples smell like once you have squeezed the juice out of them
01:19:27 <oklopol> things tend not to smell unless you destroy them
01:19:50 <oklopol> i think i just accidentally told everyone i'm a serial killer
01:19:56 <TeruFSX> not much more than sugar, maybe a few sour notes i guess

01:26:16 <elliott> Yahweasel: So how do you actually mix two MIDI tracks together? Just use Rosegarden or something? That's so manual...
01:26:17 <oklopol> :SD
01:26:36 <Yahweasel> elliott: ./mergefiles a.mid b.mid out.mid
01:26:51 <elliott> Yahweasel: You said your music production system lacked this :P
01:27:01 <Yahweasel> elliott: No, I said that was a small clerical task.
01:27:05 <elliott> Yahweasel: Right :P
01:27:05 <Yahweasel> It is not the important part of my suite.
01:27:14 <Yahweasel> It's still part of it.
01:27:18 <elliott> ./ makes baby jesus sad, you need to give them all six-letter names and make them global.
01:27:26 <elliott> OK, mergemid would also be acceptable :P
01:28:17 -!- pizearke has quit (Quit: Leaving.).
01:28:51 <Yahweasel> Yeah, in retrospect I should have named all those "files" things as "mid", but I was in MIDI-mode at the time so I was thinking "what other kinds of files ARE there?"

01:30:11 <elliott> Lawl :P
01:30:19 <elliott> Yahweasel: I thought you were the kind of pedantic asshole who always calls them smf.
01:30:45 <Yahweasel> I can't, because I'm integrating with PortMidi and PortSMF is terrible :P
01:31:11 <elliott> I thought PortMidi sucked donkey dick.
01:31:15 <elliott> Or was that just PortSMF?
01:31:26 <elliott> "portsmf (short for Portable Standard Midi File Library), a subproject of portmedia, is a library for reading, writing, and manipulating standard midi files. One drawback of any standard midi file library is that most of the work is likely to be translating midi to whatever local data structure you are using to represent midi or general music data. portsmf provides one such data structure. Originally, this library was called Allegro, so at least
01:31:26 <elliott> for now, you'll see a lot of "allegro" and "alg" in the sources."
01:31:28 <oklopol> my hair is very curly
01:32:00 <Yahweasel> elliott: Just PortSMF. PortMidi is ... bad, but sufferable :P
01:32:09 <elliott> Yahweasel: I would tell you to support MT-[thirtytwo] awesomely, but it's just a MIDI+other stuff -> analogue audio thing :(
01:32:17 <elliott> Although IIRC it has a MIDI Out that does... something...
01:32:26 <elliott> (Other stuff because you can actually reprogram the instruments totally.)
01:32:31 <elliott> (And put messages on the screen :P)
01:35:46 <Yahweasel> So the problem with the tornado alarm is that when it goes off, I have no idea whether it's its usual testing schedule, or what I'm supposed to do if it's not.

02:12:53 <elliott> oklopol: so basically you have lots of incest?
02:12:59 <elliott> that's what that means don't you know
02:13:00 <elliott> scientific fact
02:13:32 <Sgeo_> There is an attractive, and apparently smart, girl at school
02:13:34 <elliott> oklopol doesn't like facts :(
02:13:38 <elliott> Sgeo_: "apparently smart" lol
02:13:42 <elliott> "bro, I heard she's really smart"
02:13:43 <Sgeo_> I think she either likes me, is neutral towards me, or dislikes me
02:13:45 <oklopol> elliott: whoooops
02:13:47 <elliott> ...
02:13:48 <oklopol> no wait what?
02:13:50 <elliott> Sgeo_: that was a joke right
02:14:01 <elliott> `addquote <Sgeo_> I think she either likes me, is neutral towards me, or dislikes me
02:14:03 <HackEgo> 371) <Sgeo_> I think she either likes me, is neutral towards me, or dislikes me
02:14:48 <Sgeo_> She did approach where I was sitting once, asked if she could sat there. I think at some point though, I said something that upset her. Not sure.

02:15:02 <elliott> this bipolar guy
02:15:07 <elliott> sorry, bi-winning.
02:15:15 <elliott> he's a bitchin' rockstar from mars apparently

02:16:37 <Yahweasel> I was hoping for Cats from Zero Wing.
02:17:06 <elliott> X-D
02:17:09 <elliott> That would be even better.
02:21:40 <oklopol> those cats don't help me as much as i'd hoped
02:24:49 <elliott> oklopol: he's this actor on this terrible sitcom. then he spent a weekend doing insane amounts of cocaine and hookers.
02:24:57 <elliott> forcing him to go to hospital
02:25:14 <elliott> oklopol: then he turned completely manic bipolar and insane, and his show got cancelled because he's insane
02:25:17 <elliott> and he raged about it insanely

02:28:46 <elliott> hi
02:28:52 <elliott> sgeo is ogling another tarded girl
02:28:53 <elliott> how are you
02:28:56 <pikhq> Why must even menial employment be difficult?
02:29:44 <pikhq> I literally can't even get a job flipping burgers.
02:29:51 <pikhq> SCREW YOU, BUSH.
02:29:54 <elliott> FREELANCE PROGRAMMING
02:29:55 <elliott> (NOTE: JOKE)
02:30:01 <elliott> NO NO WAIT
02:30:06 <elliott> THE BEST JOB
02:30:29 <pikhq> I'm afraid I desire real currency, not peanuts.
02:30:49 <elliott> peanuts are very tasty
02:30:53 <elliott> well not really
02:31:06 <elliott> pikhq: come work at the Esoteric Research Institute
02:31:09 <pikhq> Yes, but they do not make a good item for trade or barter.
02:31:25 <elliott> the idea is, we pay you to dick around and code awesome impractical shit all day
02:31:34 <elliott> don't ask what our business model is. that's not _your_ problem.
02:32:47 <pikhq> Indeed, so long as the checks cash I needn't care much about the sanity of those responsible for there being money to fund me. :P
02:33:01 <pikhq> However, I suspect that that may be an issue.
02:33:43 <elliott> pikhq: we assure you that it is _impossible_ to prove that ERI is funded by illegal activities. so you have nothing to worry about!
02:34:01 <pikhq> Define "illegal".
02:34:22 <elliott> Define "two hundred thousand dollars a year", peasant.
02:34:26 <pikhq> I, quite honestly, don't have the capacity to give a fuck about most illegal but moral activities.
02:34:41 <pikhq> Which dollar?
02:34:46 <elliott> Hey, I never said it wasn't illegal, I just said it was impossible to prove we were funded illegally.
02:34:54 <elliott> pikhq: Canadian.
02:35:03 <pikhq> Acceptable.
02:35:20 <pikhq> Though I would have preferred silver dollars. :P
02:35:21 <elliott> We could pay you in Bitcoins if you preferred. Or maple syrup.
02:38:37 <elliott> pikhq: DO YOU WANT TO BE PAID IN MAPLE SYRUP
02:38:46 <elliott> It will NEVER have inflation, depreciation, ...
02:38:49 <elliott> It is always the best.
02:40:40 <Yahweasel> Uhh, fairly certain maple syrup spoils :P

02:41:59 <elliott> Yahweasel: Spoiled maple syrup: still better than any other liquid?
02:42:01 <elliott> Answer: Yes.
02:42:37 <elliott> news-ham has again survived an X restart.
02:42:39 <elliott> Somehow.

02:42:40 <pikhq> Oh, there is a worry with it.
02:42:45 <pikhq> Maple syrup can ferment.
02:42:48 <elliott> pikhq: Delicious.
02:43:10 <pikhq> I APPROVE OF MAPLE LIQUOR
02:44:56 <elliott> Yahweasel: You have to ferment maple syrup now.
02:45:00 <elliott> It would be... the best.
02:46:17 <pikhq> It apparently can be made into a maple mead.
02:46:59 <elliott> http://davespicks.com/writing/mme/recipes/honeymaple.html With honey :P
02:47:24 <elliott> pikhq: I wonder if fermented maple syrup itself would taste nice...
02:47:48 <pikhq> Worth experimenting.
02:48:20 <Yahweasel> It would taste very much like rum I assume.
02:48:26 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Not really.
02:48:43 <pikhq> Yahweasel: First, rum is made from molasses or sugar cane juice.
02:48:58 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Second, it's distilled. Distillation produces rather different flavors.
02:49:28 <pikhq> This hypothetical maple drink would be a straight fermented beverage.
02:49:45 <Yahweasel> Ah
02:49:56 <elliott> Maple syrup is pretty damn thick, you know :P
02:49:59 <Yahweasel> The former point is irrelevant though.
02:50:08 <elliott> You might have to mix it into something at the end to get it drinkable.
02:50:18 <pikhq> elliott: So's honey.
02:50:25 <elliott> And?
02:50:35 <elliott> Honey's thicker, obviously :P
02:50:51 <pikhq> You'd probably do what you usually do with mead: water the honey down before fermenting.
02:50:58 <elliott> NO
02:51:02 <elliott> You ferment pure maple syrup.
02:51:16 <elliott> WATER CAN COME LATER
02:51:16 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Different flavors in the unfermented product will produce different flavors in the fermented product.
02:51:33 <pikhq> Yahweasel: In case you didn't notice, molasses and maple syrup have very distinct flavors.
02:52:06 <elliott> Yahweasel: You must do it X_X
02:52:17 <Yahweasel> I don't even drink >_<
02:52:57 <elliott> Yahweasel: Dude, EVERYONE drinks for Fermented Maple Syrup.
02:52:57 <pikhq> If I had sufficient space and some spare cash, I'd try.
02:53:07 <elliott> And you're the resident Beverage Maker.
02:53:09 <elliott> Beverage... SCIENTIST.
02:53:09 <Yahweasel> I'm the resident SODA MAKER>
02:53:09 <pikhq> Though, it would be the first thing brewed by me.
02:53:10 <Yahweasel> s/>/./
02:53:10 <elliott> Yahweasel: BUT NOW THE RESIDENT BEVERAGE MAKER
02:53:10 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Why, may I ask, do you not drink?
02:53:10 <Yahweasel> I don't even like most beverages that other people like :P
02:53:13 <elliott> pikhq: I am going to give you money and you are going to use that money to make fermented maple syrup.
02:53:24 <elliott> How much cash do you require to make this possible. You must use high-quality Canadian maple syrup.
02:53:28 <Yahweasel> pikhq: I don't like it. <pikhq> Oh you just haven't {had GOOD X,developed a taste for X,blah blah blah some other bullshit X}.
02:53:51 <elliott> Yahweasel: omg we agree :D
02:53:59 <elliott> Alcoholic drinks don't taste good :P
02:54:16 <pikhq> Yahweasel: I shan't say "you haven't developed a taste for X", as I liked it right away...
02:54:25 <elliott> pikhq: HOW MUCH MONEY
02:54:32 <pikhq> Yahweasel: But I must say, there's a decent chance you've had shit.
02:54:48 <pikhq> Yahweasel: There's also a decent chance that anosmia sucks.
02:54:59 <pikhq> elliott: I KNOW NOT
02:55:08 <elliott> pikhq: Find out how much you'd need to make it happen.
02:55:11 <elliott> I am so, so serious.
02:55:27 <Yahweasel> pikhq: There's also a decent chance that I've had expensive dinners in Genoa, Prague and London :P
02:55:37 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Ah, right.
02:55:42 <pikhq> Yahweasel: So, anosmia sucks.
02:55:47 <Yahweasel> And expensive dinners in the former two include expensive wine (whether you want them to or not)
02:55:53 <Yahweasel> ANd wine tastes EXACTLY like chilled coffee.
02:56:03 <oklopol> chilled coffee tastes awesome
02:56:07 <pikhq> ... Not even vaguely close to me.
02:56:20 <elliott> pikhq: He's hyposmic :P
02:56:24 <pikhq> Though iced coffee is pretty awesome with some cream & sugar.
02:56:34 <pikhq> elliott: Point is, his nose spites good taste.
02:56:36 <elliott> I'm pretty sure wine, sans the aroma, is similar to coffee.
02:56:39 <Yahweasel> Chilled, "sweetened" coffee, although as far as I can tell sweetening coffee just makes it sour (so more like wine)
02:56:41 <elliott> I can really see that.
02:57:00 <elliott> Yahweasel: What does coke taste like to you, acid water? :P
02:57:08 <pikhq> Hmm. Actually, sans aroma, the major taste in both would be "bitter"...
02:57:21 <Yahweasel> pikhq: WHY YES.
02:57:23 <Yahweasel> pikhq: YES IT IS.
02:57:28 <Yahweasel> elliott: I can actually taste the sweetness in coke :P
02:57:31 <oklopol> i don't really smell much
02:57:33 <Yahweasel> elliott: And juice, for that matter.
02:57:40 <elliott> Yahweasel: lawl
02:57:42 <oklopol> but i love all tastes
02:57:47 <elliott> Yahweasel: What does Dr Pepper taste like?
02:57:59 <oklopol> i'm never hungry because i love eating too much to want to wait
02:58:00 <Yahweasel> elliott: ... fruity?
02:58:04 <elliott> Yahweasel: BORING
02:58:10 <Yahweasel> elliott: ...???
02:58:15 <pikhq> ... Dr Pepper, fruity?
02:58:17 <Yahweasel> What is it supposed to taste like? :P
02:58:20 <elliott> I'm trying to get INTERESTING RESULTS.
02:58:24 <elliott> Dr Pepper ... IS fruity :P
02:58:28 <elliott> Fruity with... you know, other shit.
02:58:29 <elliott> But yeah.
02:58:35 <elliott> Yahweasel: Vanilla essence?
02:58:40 <pikhq> elliott: Doesn't really taste "fruity" to me.
02:58:41 <Yahweasel> pikhq: Not like berry-y, but like some of the warmer fruits.
02:58:49 <pikhq> I'm not sure how to describe it, really.
02:59:04 <Yahweasel> elliott: ... is "vanilla essence" something one drinks? :P
02:59:11 <elliott> pikhq: Dr Pepper tastes like Dr Pepper, but it is unquestionably something _like_ Cherry Coke.
02:59:17 <elliott> FAR superior, but it _does_ have a shitload of fruits.
02:59:18 <elliott> Yahweasel: YES
02:59:20 <elliott> It should be :P
02:59:25 <Yahweasel> OK Tia, it's time to stop taking up of the bed >_<
02:59:25 <pikhq> elliott: Except with less cherry.
02:59:27 <elliott> Yahweasel: Do you... not know what "vanilla essence" is?
02:59:28 <pikhq> elliott: Okay, fair enough.
02:59:32 <elliott> <Yahweasel> OK Tia, it's time to stop taking up ¾ of the bed >_<

03:00:27 <Yahweasel> elliott: Are you referring to vanilla extract or something?
03:00:42 <elliott> Yahweasel: It's really strong vanilla in alcohol in really tiny bottles.
03:00:44 <elliott> So: Almost certainly.
03:00:53 <elliott> Yahweasel: I am _not_ referring to the shit that you get in huge bottles that's diluted to hell.
03:00:58 <pikhq> Yeah, that's vanilla extract.
03:01:18 <elliott> Yahweasel: http://www.spicesofindia.co.uk/acatalog/Pride-Vanilla-Essence-Big.gif
03:01:19 <elliott> Note tiny bottle.
03:01:23 <pikhq> You can actually get vanilla extract in huge bottles. I know not the cost.
03:01:41 <oklopol> Yahweasel: i'm sure fat cats are used to getting as great a percentage of a bed as they like
03:01:46 <elliott> pikhq: Fermented (maple syrup + bit of vanilla extract): oh god so fuckinszg deliciosudfghjk
03:02:11 <Yahweasel> Right, so vanilla extract, got it :P
03:02:18 <pikhq> "Imitation vanilla extract is usually made by soaking alcohol into wood, which contains vanillin."
03:02:21 <pikhq> This makes me sad.
03:02:49 <Yahweasel> pikhq: ... why?
03:02:50 <oklopol> does it give you wood
03:02:51 <elliott> X-D
03:02:59 <elliott> WOOD: Tastes like vanilla
03:03:00 <elliott> Yahweasel: Cheap.
03:03:08 <elliott> Yahweasel lives in a world of richness :P
03:03:42 <elliott> Yahweasel: (I am trolling you)
03:03:43 <Yahweasel> Imitation vanilla extract really isn't that bad, depending on the usage.
03:04:12 <elliott> IT'S IMPURE
03:04:23 <elliott> Even the alcohol base of vanilla essence is unacceptable.
03:04:26 <elliott> It must be PURE LIQUID VANILLA
03:04:35 <oklopol> god my back hurts
03:04:43 <pikhq> It's insufficiently vanilla-y.

03:08:47 <oklopol> elliott: i will do a jigsaw puzzle with you if you like, sure

03:10:50 <pikhq> Though, given a decent income, I'd be liable to try my hand at homebrewing *anyways*...
03:11:06 <elliott> I need to get around to making Swig Ingest Drink.
03:11:44 <elliott> Then whoever makes fermented maple syrup and vanilla gets to create Swig Ingest Drunk: Just Like the Real Thing, Only More Alcoholic.

03:15:40 <elliott> Milk is sticky?
03:15:53 <elliott> Bro, we have both been drinking milk, but the milk I have been drinking is not the milk that you have been drinking.

03:17:38 <elliott> I wouldn't drink it if it did shit to the roof of my mouth.

03:20:36 <elliott> It literally just has the texture of... liquid.
03:20:41 <elliott> Milk, that is.
03:20:48 <Yahweasel> EXCEPT STICKY AND GROSS
03:20:51 <elliott> SRSLY come to Britain we have nice milk from nice cows.
03:20:54 <elliott> IT ISN'T STICKY I PROMISE YOU
03:21:02 -!- augur_ has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
03:21:04 <elliott> Have you been having milk that didn't just come straight out of a good fridge?
03:21:25 <Yahweasel> Why is it that every time I describe a food/drink I don't like, people assume my sample size is one :P
03:21:33 <elliott> Nonono. I'm no.
03:21:33 <elliott> not.
03:21:42 <elliott> It's just that milk is _really insanely hard_ to get right :P
03:21:50 <elliott> I /hate/ 90 percent of milk because 90 percent of milk is terrible.
03:21:57 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Because you're describing things that are the very incarnation of deliciousness as "bad". :P
03:22:25 <elliott> Yahweasel: It has to be the right brand, the right skimmedness (depends on brand, etc.), and it has to have either been in a good fridge for ages or, preferably, in the freezer for the last ten minutes, and it then has to be served and drunk immediately.
03:23:10 <Yahweasel> And you have to do this while standing on your head, while Jupiter is at its zenith and Orion's Belt is visible in the western sky.
03:23:11 <elliott> It is /so delicious/.
03:23:15 <elliott> Yahweasel: Pretty much.
03:23:28 <elliott> I don't drink milk that often because it is such a coordinated practice to drink it :P
03:23:55 <pikhq> The hell foods *do* you like, Yahweasel?
03:23:56 <elliott> In 2010 a college professor named Mark Haub went on a "convenience store" diet consisting mainly of Twinkies, Oreos, and Doritos in an attempt to demonstrate to his students "that in weight loss, pure calorie counting is what matters most—not the nutritional value of the food". He lost 27 pounds over a 2 month period, returning his BMI to within normal range.[11]
03:23:57 <elliott> THE BEST DIET
03:24:08 <elliott> pikhq: Yahweasel survives on a diet composed entirely of Moxie.
03:24:46 <elliott> Two-thirds of his total intake came from junk food. He also took a multivitamin pill and drank a protein shake daily. And he ate vegetables, typically a can of green beans or three to four celery stalks.
03:24:46 <elliott> BLEH
03:24:48 <elliott> I FEEL LIED TO
03:25:09 <Yahweasel> pikhq: Everything substantial I don't like is: Dairy, fish, various beverages.
03:25:20 <Yahweasel> Other than that, I like most everything.
03:25:28 <pikhq> Yahweasel: Fish? The fuck?
03:25:34 <pikhq> Yahweasel: What about fish do you not like?
03:25:35 <elliott> Fish is horrible.
03:25:43 <Yahweasel> pikhq: Mostly the flavor :P
03:25:55 <elliott> Fish has a horrible texture and a horrible flavour.
03:25:59 <elliott> Everything about it is bad.
03:26:13 <pikhq> elliott: LIES AND DECEIT
03:26:15 <elliott> Wait.
03:26:18 <elliott> Yahweasel: Do you like pizza.
03:26:21 <elliott> (I am testing Yahweasel's humanity.)
03:26:23 <Yahweasel> elliott: "Dairy"
03:26:25 <pikhq> Though it's better uncooked. :P
03:26:31 <elliott> Pizza is... oh, cheese.
03:26:35 <elliott> Yahweasel: You can have pizza without cheese.
03:26:49 <Yahweasel> elliott: You CAN, but people look at you funny and you get disowned.
03:26:51 <elliott> (But... how does the utterly mild cheese cause distaste to you in pizza?)
03:26:53 <Yahweasel> I like no-cheese pizza though :P
03:26:58 <Yahweasel> Ugh, "mild"
03:26:59 <pikhq> Yeah, "cheese on all pizza" is an Americanism.
03:27:02 <elliott> It doesn't even have the texture.
03:27:03 <Yahweasel> It tastes like dying and hell.
03:27:10 <Yahweasel> ???
03:27:11 <elliott> Yahweasel: OK, I've figured out the problem.
03:27:26 <elliott> Yahweasel: Your definition of "taste" is one that involves not having a nose.
03:27:32 <elliott> Therefore it is utterly unrelated to the sense known as "taste".
03:27:37 <elliott> I propose you use the word "fnarf" instead.
03:28:00 <Yahweasel> The fnarf of liver paste is quite good, but the fnarf of cheese is abysmally bad.
03:28:01 <elliott> Mozzarella on pizza /fnarfs/ like dying and hell.
03:28:03 <elliott> It /tastes/ edlicious.
03:28:06 <elliott> delicious.
03:28:35 <elliott> Yahweasel: But yah, you can easily have pizza without cheese, it's a diverse field :P
03:28:44 <elliott> I keep meaning to make some pizza.

03:46:13 <pikhq> Damned shame that Google didn't just chuck some hard drives at archive.org and write it off.
03:46:48 <elliott> When you're as big as Google, such loss of data happens by only one means: a complete failure to give a shit.
03:47:06 <elliott> Still, the shutdown of Geocities was far worse.

05:22:45 <pikhq> Yeah, the nice algorithm doesn't apply.
05:23:59 <oerjan> iirc the blog post or possibly a comment mentioned that using other group characters instead for the sign, you have a dichotomy where the calculation problem is _either_ in P or #P-complete. or maybe i'm misremembering.
05:25:13 <pikhq> Indeed, the permanent is not in NP.
05:25:23 <pikhq> Even proving #P=NP would be somewhat interesting.
05:25:51 <oerjan> yeah (well technically one is a function problem class and the other is a decision problem class)
05:27:39 <oerjan> probably was this one http://rjlipton.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/valiants-permanent-contributions/

13:53:46 <oerjan> ais523: nice timing, i just saw [[AAAAAAAAAAAAAA
13:53:55 <oerjan> ]] and wondered if it needs deletion
13:54:23 <oerjan> it seems to have nothing to do with esolangs
13:54:56 * oerjan googles
13:55:28 <oerjan> it doesn't seem to be spam
13:56:43 <ais523> oerjan: it may be a reference to a famous page on Uncyclopedia
13:57:02 <oerjan> maybe. we also have a similarly named esolang.
13:57:05 <ais523> hmm, no it isn't
13:57:09 <ais523> the actual esolang is, I think
13:57:12 <ais523> but that page is just meaningless
13:57:35 <ais523> I've deleted it as offtopic
13:57:53 <ais523> the bar for topicality isn't all that high on Esolang, but that somehow managed to dive well below it anyway
13:57:54 <Phantom_Hoover> Esolang based on Feynman diagrams.
13:58:17 <oerjan> a mighty feyn idea
13:58:33 <Phantom_Hoover> Actually, I've always wanted to draw up some Feynmanoid diagrams in Life, and present them as part of a physics paper showing the latest results from the LGC.
13:58:59 <oerjan> LGC?
13:59:17 <oerjan> large glider collider?
14:01:11 <oerjan> which doesn't actually makes sense, since glider means only the smallest spaceship
14:01:15 <oerjan> *make
14:02:37 <Phantom_Hoover> It's a large collider.
14:03:02 <Phantom_Hoover> Same as the LHC doesn't collide large hadrons; it actually collides the smallest ones.
14:03:02 <oerjan> ...um, right
14:03:16 * oerjan swats his brain -----###
14:03:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh, wait, hadron /= baryon.
14:03:33 <Phantom_Hoover> Still, protons are at the low end of the scale.
14:03:37 <oerjan> hadron = baryon or meson
14:03:54 <oerjan> (barring some theoretical > 3 quark combinations)
14:04:39 <oerjan> well protons are the only stable ones

15:29:05 <Gregor> elliott: https://github.com/mozilla/narcissus/pull/31 <-- observe the greatest code I have ever written
15:29:09 <elliott> - Ask a question with ridiculous precision, going so far as to cite the exact ISO standard identifier that defines C90 -> chirp chirp
15:29:24 <ais523> elliott: I like comp.lang.c, because at least the second sort of question does normally get an answer
15:29:30 <ais523> (and the first gets flamed into oblivion)
15:29:39 <elliott> ais523: Hey, comp.lang.c probably doesn't have PoppaVic too.
15:29:45 <elliott> WONDERFUL
15:30:03 <elliott> Gregor: Wow at isValidIdentifierChar :P
15:30:10 <fizzie> The first one gets replies from them trolls about how "c.l.c fascists" are soon going to flame the question into oblivion.
15:30:10 <elliott> Gregor: That's so metacircular it's cheating :P
15:30:17 <elliott> Like function narcissusEval(x) { return eval(x); }
15:30:20 <ais523> how is it defined?

15:30:34 <elliott> If you refuse to /click links/ to GitHub, I don't care.
15:30:56 <ais523> that's just a pull request
15:30:56 <elliott> Gregor: "Note that I did it this way after spending ten minutes compiling a database of all the relevant Unicode codepoints. I vote we don't do that :P" ;; Isn't there a file with all that shit?
15:31:03 <elliott> ais523: With the function I referenced.
15:31:03 <ais523> I did click the link, the information I wanted wasn't on the other end of it
15:31:08 <elliott> Yes it was. You are blind.
15:31:12 <Gregor> elliott: Yes, but that would involve adding megs of bullshit to Narcissus :P
15:31:15 <ais523> well none of the buttons on the page do anything
15:31:22 <ais523> does it require JavaScript or something?
15:31:27 <elliott> I don't know/care/etc.
15:31:31 <Gregor> elliott: Also ITYM that's so AWESOME it's almost cheatin g:P
15:31:51 <elliott> Gregor: It already has kilos of bullshit, constituting a JavaScript program (one half bullshit), and a JavaScript interpreter (one half bullshit), making one whole bullshit :P
15:32:01 <fizzie> It seems to require JavaScript and not from just github.com (which I did have whitelisted) but also from "cloudfront.net".

15:32:48 <oerjan> ouch

15:35:44 <oerjan> he can commit to narcissism though

15:36:40 <Gregor> elliott: It's NOT "you give us all your rights, so lol screw you"

15:36:52 <elliott> SO WHAT DID HE DO
15:37:19 <Gregor> Get somebody else to commit the code :P
15:37:40 <elliott> Gregor: Hey Gregor, wanna troll Narcissus committers ;D

16:32:43 <elliott> apparently
16:32:51 <elliott> but i don't think that will be maintained
16:33:07 <Vorpal> elliott, well okay, I will give gnome3 a try I guess.
16:33:19 <elliott> yeah, gnome three appears to be almost identical to two
16:33:21 <Vorpal> elliott, didn't you say you would fork and maintain that?
16:33:21 <elliott> apart from gnome-shell
16:33:31 <Vorpal> elliott, okay, what is gnome-shell like?
16:33:33 <Vorpal> since I do use that
16:33:34 <elliott> Awful.
16:33:36 <elliott> The worst.
16:33:37 <elliott> Vorpal: No you don't.
16:33:41 <elliott> gnome-shell is the new thing.
16:33:47 <elliott> It is the worst piece of shit ever designed.
16:33:51 <Vorpal> uh, what is it that I use then?
16:33:56 <elliott> gnome-panel and metacity.
16:34:09 <Vorpal> elliott, uh, isn't gnome-shell the terminal emulator?
16:34:14 <elliott> No, that's gnome-terminal.
16:34:17 <Vorpal> ah right
16:34:22 <Vorpal> elliott, so they dropped metacity?
16:34:29 <oklopol> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lists_of_bisexual_people
16:34:48 <elliott> No, they just aren't using it by default. They're using Mutter, the compositing port of Metacity to Clutter, which is Metacity Three.
16:35:02 <elliott> Vorpal: Re: fork: Yeah, but between the fact that Unity is starting to look like it might actually be pretty good, and the fact that I'm planning to switch to a no-DE system on the desktop, means I'm not sure I care enough.
16:35:11 <Vorpal> elliott, I have to say I'm quite fond of metacity. It isn't fancy, but it gets the job done with minimal fuss.

17:46:14 <oklopol> crystal-cola: how so?
17:46:16 <ais523> however silly they are
17:46:21 <Gregor> <crystal-cola> bisexuality = mysogeny // lol, I'd love to hear the logic behind this X-D
17:46:24 <ais523> it's not fair to the person the attacks were against
17:46:26 <elliott> ais523: yes I do, maybe you don't :)
17:46:35 <elliott> was it actually a full name or was it just like
17:46:36 <elliott> "john"
17:46:40 <ais523> full name
17:46:43 <ais523> but I can't remember it
17:46:47 <elliott> because i'm totally john, and i want to know what they said against me, john
17:47:25 <oerjan> dear john
17:47:52 <crystal-cola> oklopol: Nothing is more demeaning to a women than a ``bisexual'' mans distaste and fundamental non-acceptance of her femininity
17:48:03 <elliott> crystal-cola: what
17:48:05 <crystal-cola> it is akin to spousal abuse
17:48:12 <crystal-cola> at a psychosexual level
17:48:19 <elliott> ...
17:48:20 <elliott> lol :D
17:48:22 <elliott> ur funny

17:48:33 <elliott> Gregor: btw /msg :P
17:48:33 <crystal-cola> bisexuality and feminism
17:48:39 <Gregor> elliott: Yes yes.
17:48:52 <elliott> crystal-cola: but how did you arrive at that conclusion
17:48:53 <elliott> using logic?
17:48:56 <elliott> the universe isn't based on logic
17:49:02 <crystal-cola> of course I didn't use logic
17:49:04 <olsner> <elliott> olsner: I'm going to work on that Forth again :) | <elliott> wait | <elliott> i can't type an at sign
17:49:05 <elliott> well true
17:49:08 <elliott> it /was/ totally illogical
17:49:31 <Gregor> Skipping to the end, "In conclusion, bisexuality is a form of inclusivity and supports feminism and homosexuality by challenging sexism and heterosexism and by seeking equality of the sexes."
17:49:32 <olsner> did that mean you were unable to do anything with the forth?
17:49:40 <crystal-cola> I don't try to force the false ideals of logic onto everythingg
17:49:54 <elliott> olsner: well i can't test it without renaming at, and at is encoded as zero, which I use to know when to stop searching :D
17:50:01 <crystal-cola> Gregor: yes but if you read it you'd see that she's completely wrong
17:50:04 <elliott> olsner: wanna try and fix my bug? i'll get out my virtual keyboard if you want to take a look :P
17:50:06 <elliott> it's a weird one.
17:50:52 <olsner> elliott: no, I'll be watching deadliest catch and whatever other tv series I've missed this week's episodes of... and then have a bath and/or a sandwich
17:50:57 <crystal-cola> There is no reason to use logical or rational thought, the only justification for doing so is because you enjoy it
17:51:09 <elliott> olsner: you're a slave to the machine
17:51:23 <elliott> crystal-cola: <elliott> crystal-cola: but if the world doesn't conform to logic then the world conforms to logic, so it's reasonable to assume that the world conforms to logic
17:51:27 <elliott> crystal-cola: do you have a response to this argument?
17:51:29 <olsner> elliott: yep, mindless consumer and idler
17:51:35 <elliott> it proves that logic is incontrovertibly true, even if it is not
17:51:43 -!- copumpkin has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
17:51:54 <crystal-cola> elliott: Assuming logic is true, then since you used logic your argument is false
17:52:21 <elliott> crystal-cola: Logic is invalid. Everything is true and everything is false.
17:52:24 <elliott> So logic is valid.
17:52:38 <crystal-cola> I have presented a definitive ``illogical'' refutation of your argument
17:53:07 <elliott> crystal-cola: here's my refutation of your argument
17:53:10 <elliott> crystal-cola: ur mom
17:53:17 <crystal-cola> you're assuming that true = false, that's not provable
17:53:18 <elliott> that's even less logical and therefore more valid
17:53:25 <elliott> crystal-cola: no, but it doesn't have to be
17:53:26 <elliott> we don't need proof
17:53:28 <elliott> because logic is wrong
17:53:34 <crystal-cola> So you agree with me
17:53:43 <elliott> crystal-cola: <elliott> crystal-cola: Logic is invalid. Everything is true and everything is false.
17:53:43 <elliott> <elliott> So logic is valid.
17:53:49 <elliott> Logic is invalid SO LOGIC IS VALID.
17:53:54 <elliott> Or, logic is valid, and so logic is valid.
17:55:12 <crystal-cola> As Ayn Rand said,
17:55:20 <olsner> nothing is valid and everything sucks
17:55:53 <elliott> crystal-cola: ayn rand based her philosophy on logic

17:58:14 <elliott> olsner: this is a damn subtle bug, not even impomatic could find it ;D
17:58:49 <olsner> heh, if it's so subtle, why do you need it fixed?
17:59:22 <elliott> olsner: erm, it's subtle in the sense that the code looks like it's absolutely flawless, and is tiny, yet it breaks badly
17:59:26 <elliott> you can't use the at instruction, for instance
17:59:39 <olsner> what's that do?
18:00:01 <elliott> olsner: err, it's the at sign
18:00:02 <elliott> it accesses memory
18:00:04 <elliott> it's pretty important
18:00:09 <elliott> olsner: it's a problem with dictionary lookup
18:00:14 <elliott> it would break other words as the dictionary increases in size, almost certainly
18:00:15 <elliott> blergh
18:00:18 <elliott> you'll see what i mean if you look
18:01:33 <olsner> not sure I want to look, it'll probably make me want to investigate
18:02:57 <elliott> olsner: http://sprunge.us/OYVO all the commented out bits are _not_ code i'm debugging, just relics of old interfaces/implementation that I couldn't bring myself to remove entirely (ok it's like four lines)
18:03:00 <elliott> this line, near the end, is the important one:
18:03:01 <elliott> ; If this is uncommented, then trying to execute @ (= 0) reports "?"
18:03:01 <elliott> ;dd 0x1c ; \
18:03:01 <elliott> ;dw comp
18:03:06 <elliott> and the function that is presumably broken is fword
18:03:17 <elliott> which as you can see, is pretty much perfect
18:03:18 <olsner> dd 0x1c?
18:03:24 <elliott> yes, it's the packed version of \
18:03:32 <elliott> olsner: the fact that the at sign packs to 0 is used to terminate the list
18:03:34 <elliott> at is put at the end
18:03:37 <elliott> so that if it doesn't find a word
18:03:40 <elliott> and the current word is 0
18:03:43 <elliott> it can terminate the lookup
18:03:44 -!- copumpkin has joined.
18:03:47 <elliott> you'll see what i mean if you look at fword
18:06:59 <crystal-cola> elliott: she said that the universe defines order, so there is no such thing as an unordered universe
18:07:22 <elliott> ah. and that's interesting, because it's close enough to coherency, and sounds deep enough, that nobody notices it's meaningless
18:07:32 -!- BeholdMyGlory has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
18:08:22 <crystal-cola> why is it meaningless?
18:08:43 <olsner> elliott: you have cmp dword [di], and then you jump to something that does cmp word [di] without changing di inbetween
18:08:46 <olsner> that just looks wrong
18:08:57 <elliott> olsner: isn't that the point?
18:09:26 <elliott> olsner: hmm, I guess I should check dword
18:09:27 <elliott> ah, I see
18:09:31 <elliott> because one-c is small enough
18:09:33 <elliott> that the top bit is 0
18:09:35 <elliott> olsner: thanks a ton
18:09:43 <elliott> :)
18:09:55 <crystal-cola> "The fake philosophical terminology of mathematical logic has misled philosophers into believing that mathematical logic deals with the truth in the philosophical sense. But this is a mistake. Mathematical logic deals not with the truth, but with the game of truth." - Rota
18:10:00 <olsner> the first 2 bytes are the least-significant though, so I doubt that all of it
18:12:52 <olsner> like, it should in fact be a shorter way to check if it's zero, if you know that the low bits are never zero if the high bits are nonzero
18:13:42 <elliott> olsner: i don't know that, though
18:13:43 <elliott> well
18:13:48 <crystal-cola> I don't think it's meaningless. The point is that if you exist in some universe then "order" is whatever you perceive
18:13:48 <elliott> i know that nothing but at starts with at
18:14:01 <elliott> and i pack with the first character getting <<d the most
18:14:08 <elliott> so is that in fact a shorter way to check that?
18:15:00 <olsner> so something like f@@@@ would break unless you make it check the full dword?
18:18:07 <elliott> olsner: i think so, yes. but I can make it [at]f, rather than f[at]
18:18:08 <elliott> i think
18:18:13 <elliott> so it is okay if that breaks
18:18:24 <elliott> but i just want to know why at itself breaks when i add 0x1C before it
18:18:36 <elliott> i think it is because it thinks the dictionary ends at 1C

18:45:13 <elliott> olsner: ...ouch...
18:45:22 <elliott> olsner: can I blame Emacs for that possibility?
18:45:53 <elliott> NASM uses backslash (\) as the line continuation character; if a line ends with backslash, the next line is considered to be a part of the backslash-ended line.
18:45:54 <olsner> of course! I hate emacs
18:46:02 <elliott> olsner: well actually it'll be fizzie to blame
18:46:04 <elliott> since he wrote nasm-mode
18:46:05 <elliott> :D
18:46:16 <olsner> he did? cool
18:46:36 <olsner> to be fair, vim's highlighting doesn't handle comments ending in \ either
18:46:45 <elliott> yep, this seems to be it
18:46:51 <elliott> olsner: well he wrote the one i'm using after stealing it from him :D
18:54:49 <Vorpal> elliott, you were wrong about not needing the log deleter program in uplink. 1) delete in the log directory works like version 1.0 log deleter, so they can be recovered with logundeleter 2) not all systems has a console, internic for example doesn't (and since it never traces it is a very good place to delete logs on)
18:55:53 <elliott> Vorpal: well, ok.
18:56:00 <elliott> Vorpal: re logundeleter: trash every system you hack into
18:56:01 <elliott> it's easy
18:56:05 <elliott> delete sys directory, shutdown
18:56:24 <Vorpal> elliott, doesn't help as far as I can tell for computer handled passive trace
18:56:29 <elliott> wat
18:56:34 <elliott> LOGIC
18:56:35 <Vorpal> elliott, besides that means you can never reuse the system for bouncing, no?
18:56:45 <elliott> Vorpal: True, but it helps you achieve the Scorched Earth conduct.

19:21:50 <Phantom_Hoover> It actually only went down to the rating above that.
19:21:55 <elliott> Ah :P
19:22:17 <Phantom_Hoover> Since I'd made my initial cash by taking on anti-corporate missions and it was quite high.
19:25:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh FFS dinner.
19:25:52 <Sgeo__> Hmm
19:26:06 <Sgeo__> Instead of giving the agents to Beta or whoever, why not jail them yourself for no good reason?
19:26:16 <Sgeo__> Then maybe hand them over. Can Beta kill people who are in jail?
19:27:14 <Phantom_Hoover> You get paid a crapload for the names.

19:28:01 <Sgeo__> Don't you make much more by bank robberies?
19:28:09 <Sgeo__> And bank robberies don't kill anyone!
19:28:14 <elliott> Killing is good.
19:30:06 <Phantom_Hoover> Sgeo__, bank robberies are a bit of a black sheep.
19:30:13 <Sgeo__> Hmm?
19:30:25 <Phantom_Hoover> They're obviously not intentionally such a cash cow, because it's actively gamebreaking.
19:32:06 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, any idea how the network dual monitor stuff in uplink works?
19:32:29 <Phantom_Hoover> Dual monitor?
19:32:37 <Phantom_Hoover> Like, two on the connection view?
19:33:03 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, look in the options
19:33:21 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, click "edit multimonitor options"
19:33:24 <Vorpal> and wonder what it is
19:33:39 <Phantom_Hoover> Multimonitor as in having two screens?
19:35:14 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, I don't know what it does!

19:37:37 <Vorpal> one called comms
19:37:39 <Phantom_Hoover> Not the argument itself, because it looks to be correct, but because this guy is quite clearly a free-market idiot.
19:37:40 <Vorpal> the other called status
19:37:48 <Vorpal> clicking status causes sigabrt
19:37:59 <Vorpal> due to a detected buffer overflow in an assert
19:38:08 <Vorpal> clicking comms brings up an empty world map

19:39:21 <elliott> "its not the money we spend on them that sucks, its the fact that theure born and never have to do ANYTHING difficult in their life and people around the world are starving to death.."
19:39:25 <elliott> OFFICE JOBS ARE UNFAIR
19:39:32 <elliott> Everyone must do manual labour.
19:40:22 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, erm, wait, you are pro-royals?
19:40:32 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: No, I'm anti-idiotic-arguments.
19:40:33 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, whatever that multimonitor thingy is, it doesn't work
19:41:01 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Although the royal family does have /some/ use: look at America, who doesn't have a powerless highest-class to fawn over. Instead, people like Sarah Palin are famous.
19:41:21 <elliott> The Royal family at least serves as a safe sink for everyone's patriotic adoration.
19:41:57 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, that doesn't annoy me; the smarmy little man saying "they inherited this land SO OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE A TRANSCENDENT RIGHT TO IT" does.
19:42:10 <Vorpal> elliott, that is quite an interesting point
19:42:30 <elliott> Vorpal: I copied it from someone else, but I forget who, and it was a long time ago. :)
19:42:33 <Phantom_Hoover> I mean, they didn't acquire that land by free trade.
19:42:43 <elliott> It's a pretty cynical land, mind you.
19:42:52 -!- Gregor has changed nick to Yahweasel.

19:44:55 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: This guy does not really sound like a free-market idiot. Free-market idiots don't like the Royal family.

19:46:45 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: This guy is actually pretty funny :P
19:47:28 <Phantom_Hoover> I'm sorry, but the "they own the land" bit annoyed me too much to continue.
19:48:09 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Shut up or we'll kick you out of U.R.E.S.W.N.I.
19:48:28 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Anyway, are you denying that the royals /do/ actually own the land?
19:48:38 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, they do, yes, but it's missing the point.
19:49:17 <elliott> Hey wait it's /that/ Grey.
19:49:19 <elliott> Is that the guy?
19:49:21 <elliott> I think that is the guy.
19:50:32 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, would it be possible to gain admin on ever internal service system where it is possible in uplink before they change the password of the first one?
19:51:01 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, just a small challenge to you ;)
19:58:32 <elliott> i don't get it
20:00:18 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, probably.
20:00:24 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, admin passwords change over time.
20:00:39 <elliott> Ah.
20:00:45 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: WILL YOU TRY MY SCORCHED EARTH CONDUCT
20:00:50 <Phantom_Hoover> NO
20:01:37 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: ALSO FUN
20:01:39 <Phantom_Hoover> Anyway, I've decided I don't really mind the whole royal thing that much, though I reserve the right to be contemptuous towards anyone who actually cares about their antics.
20:02:37 <elliott> Oh, certainly; 'TIS FOR THE PLEBIANS
20:03:06 <elliott> The Royal family is utterly unnecessary, but getting rid of them is way more trouble than it's worth and they seem to be worthwhile.
20:03:09 <elliott> Somehow.
20:05:17 <Phantom_Hoover> I also get the sense that without the disadvantageous deal on the crown estates, there would have been another, more permanent revolution.
20:05:36 <Phantom_Hoover> TL;DR: oh, English people!

20:21:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Good one.
20:22:43 <elliott> i'm not an epidemiologist, but i play one in interviews

21:18:18 <elliott> hi rapido
21:18:27 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, they don't.
21:18:31 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Well, no.
21:18:38 <Phantom_Hoover> It's completely, unshakeably under fair use.
21:18:40 <rapido> hey elliott!
21:18:48 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: But if he /didn't/ ask for permission, he'd have a rather difficult time getting contracts, etc.
21:18:51 <Phantom_Hoover> Al is just a nice guy and as such always asks for permission.
21:19:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, yes, it's in his interest as well.
21:22:35 <rapido> arthur whitney's code is conventional: who would ever guess?: http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/4248#comment-65324
21:23:01 <elliott> Conventional if you totally reformat it :P
21:23:22 <rapido> anyone into k/q ?
21:23:44 <elliott> I like K (though I'm not very good at it), I don't care about Q.
21:23:53 <elliott> I'm more comfortable with J, but K is cool too.
21:24:10 <rapido> elliott: comfortable? really? cool!
21:24:14 <elliott> Well.
21:24:16 <elliott> MORE comfortable
21:24:18 <elliott> not comfortable :)
21:24:39 <elliott> But then maybe it never gets easier than this :P
21:25:31 <rapido> i wonder if k/q tables is ultimate data structure (there is no such thing)
21:25:41 <rapido> is -> is the
21:25:43 <elliott> there is no such thing :)
21:25:50 <elliott> they're quite awkward to do trees in
21:25:58 <elliott> anything that can't do trees naturally can't be the ultimate data structure
21:26:08 <elliott> or, well, maybe i should just say graphs
21:26:13 <elliott> trees are just a subset of graphs after all :)
21:26:18 <elliott> graphs are the closest thing to the ultimate data structure imo
21:26:24 <rapido> elliott: DAGs please
21:26:26 <elliott> after all, that's how they get represented, no matter what the hardware architecture
21:26:42 <elliott> rapido: acyclic? but then how do you represent x = cons y x?
21:26:43 <elliott> :)
21:27:20 <rapido> elliott: i don't like loopy stuff - i get dizzy
21:28:01 <elliott> rapido:
21:28:01 <elliott> isprime n = not . any ((==0) . (n `mod`)) . takeWhile ((<= n) . (^2)) $ primelist
21:28:02 <elliott> primelist = 2 : [x | x <- [3,5..], isprime x]
21:28:10 <elliott> [rapido suddenly gets so dizzy he passes out]
21:28:32 <rapido> primes are fine - they are unique!
21:28:41 <elliott> rapido: clearly you haven't looked at how the code actually works
21:28:58 <elliott> primelist is two, followed by all odd numbers n such that (isprime n)
21:28:59 <crystal-cola> uh
21:29:00 <crystal-cola> how is that J
21:29:04 <rapido> ah, mutual recursion?
21:29:10 <elliott> isprime n just checks that the number doesn't divide any of the primes less than n squared :)
21:29:14 <elliott> where does it get the primes?
21:29:14 <elliott> primelist
21:29:18 <elliott> crystal-cola: it isn't, it's Haskell
21:29:22 <elliott> but it's the loopiest code i know of :)
21:29:55 <elliott> rapido: so hand-waving, primelist is just all numbers that isprime, and isprime n just checks nothing in a prefix of primelist divides n :)
21:30:06 <elliott> (and primelist itself is infinite)
21:31:16 <rapido> elliott: can you rewrite this into Y-combinator? it believe you can
21:31:26 <elliott> you can rewrite any recursion with the y combinator
21:31:27 <rapido> into <- into a
21:31:29 <crystal-cola> you can but.... Y would you?
21:31:32 <elliott> but primelist isn't a function, it's just a list
21:31:50 <crystal-cola> haskell doesn't need Y combinators, U is enough due to lazyness
21:31:53 * elliott thinks rapido should be a lot dizzier round about now
21:31:59 <crystal-cola> fixed point combinators other than Y
21:33:58 <rapido> i like fixed point combinators exactly because it doesn't require (lazy) cyclic definitions
21:34:23 <elliott> yes it does
21:34:25 <elliott> it constructs them itself
21:34:33 <elliott> the Y combinator requires laziness btw btw
21:34:35 <elliott> otherwise it diverges
21:35:17 <crystal-cola> not the one I learned in SICP
21:35:22 <elliott> that's not Y
21:35:28 <crystal-cola> Y NOT?
21:35:32 <elliott> har har har
21:35:41 <elliott> wikipedia calls the strict version Z
21:35:42 <elliott> Z = λf. (λx. f (λy. x x y)) (λx. f (λy. x x y))
21:35:55 <monqy> nice lambdas there
21:35:55 <elliott> of course in languages with non-function types, this can only be used on a function, which sucks a bit
21:36:00 <rapido> elliott: not if you feed the (derivative) Y combinator a fixed number of iterations after which it should stop
21:36:05 <elliott> monqy: yeah, thank wikipedia :p
21:36:07 <elliott> rapido: gross
21:36:35 <rapido> it make the Y combinator a total function - ah yeah!
21:36:57 <elliott> yeah, by way of being totally ugly
21:37:04 <crystal-cola> lol
21:37:12 <elliott> anyway, it's not enough, it's total but you can't list all the cases
21:37:15 <elliott> UNACCEPTABLE
21:37:26 <elliott> it must only take a thirty-two bit natural number of iterations
21:37:32 <elliott> that way, we can write all the possible cases out
21:37:45 <elliott> I'm starting the Order of Ultrafinitist Programmers, we code exclusively in lookup tables
21:38:05 <crystal-cola> The sad thing is most programmers are already ultrafinitists
21:38:19 <elliott> that sounds like an unlikely propositio
21:38:19 <elliott> n
21:38:21 <rapido> lookup tables - that's finite enough for me
21:38:25 <crystal-cola> using languages that dont admit infinite lists and such
21:39:12 <monqy> don't most programmers use turing-complete languages
21:39:20 * copumpkin sighs
21:39:29 <Phantom_Hoover> Hmm. I removed /r/pics and /r/gaming from my front page and I now see the advantage of having them.
21:39:40 <rapido> i read that a total functional language can't emulate itself - is this true?
21:40:37 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: What advantage?
21:40:39 <rapido> or is it the other way around :)
21:40:40 <elliott> copumpkin: hi there :D
21:40:54 <crystal-cola> rapido: it's the same as all the other diagonalization arguments
21:41:14 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, they buffer out stuff that is actually interesting with mindless dross *very* effectively.
21:41:28 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: And this is a good thing why? :P
21:42:04 <Phantom_Hoover> Because stuff that is actually interesting sucks in time way too well.
21:44:56 <zzo38> rapido: I don't know
21:45:39 <rapido> zzo38: i also don't know (what you're referring to?)
21:45:57 <zzo38> I don't know, if it is true, if a total function language can't emulate itself.
21:47:32 <rapido> zzo39: the guys and girls from LTU say it can't be: http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/3076
21:48:01 <crystal-cola> If e : N -> (N -> N) is an evaluator and for every function f : N -> N suppose there was a code c : N such that e c = f then let f n = e n n + 1 and x be the code for f then f x = e x x + 1 = f x + 1
21:48:05 <crystal-cola> therefore 0 = 1
21:48:40 <crystal-cola> this is standard diagonalization argument like Turin
21:48:42 <crystal-cola> g
21:49:00 <rapido> my gut feeling says you can - but you need BigNums
21:49:12 <rapido> BigNums that are finitie
21:49:20 <rapido> finitie <- finite
21:50:02 <copumpkin> BigNums are just numbers
21:50:04 <rapido> let's say you want to generate x numbers
21:50:26 <crystal-cola> I guess mathematical proof is not enough to convince you
21:50:28 <zzo38> BytePusher is one system that uses lookup tables for everything. (I think)
21:50:30 <copumpkin> if you're talking about "total functional languages" and whether they can emulate themselves in theory, you shouldn't even be considering anything but infinite numbers
21:50:47 <copumpkin> machine integers are irrelevant to the discussion, let's say
21:50:49 <rapido> and you define a function that takes x^x - it is still finite - but slow
21:51:26 <crystal-cola> exponentiation isn't total
21:51:52 <elliott> yes it is
21:52:04 <copumpkin> there's the question of what 0^0 is
21:52:10 <elliott> well, right.
21:52:12 <crystal-cola> it grows too fast
21:52:17 <elliott> crystal-cola is arguing in the bullshit sense, though.
21:52:25 <crystal-cola> there is no evidece that numbers bigger than 1000000000000 can be exponentiated
21:52:31 <copumpkin> oh okay
21:52:33 <elliott> crystal-cola: you're using the unjustified assumption that LOGIC IS VALID
21:52:40 <elliott> therefore exponentiation is total
21:52:44 <rapido> i like total functions - call me sane
21:53:04 <crystal-cola> logic is relevant to this actually
21:53:17 <crystal-cola> using logic one finds evidence that exponentiation is different
21:53:36 <elliott> but it's UNJUSTIFIED
21:53:37 <rapido> i also like rewriting languages: 0^0 may be should be left not to be rewritten
21:53:41 <rapido> as 0/0
21:53:52 <crystal-cola> There is no reason anything should be justified
21:54:36 <Phantom_Hoover> I approve of the 0^0=1 argument based on set theory.
21:55:10 <copumpkin> id : Void -> Void
21:55:30 <Phantom_Hoover> Also there's the fact that x^x → 1 as x → 0.
21:55:55 <rapido> i would just leave x^x as is.
21:56:07 <crystal-cola> yeah
21:56:27 <Vorpal> anyone know a ray tracing engine that can handle diffraction? From what I can tell, povray can't.
21:56:30 <rapido> if x was replaced with 0
21:56:44 <zzo38> I think $0^0=1$ is make sense (in general).
21:56:48 <rapido> ray tracing? - ah yeah!
21:57:49 <rapido> Vorpal: what's diffraction? does it concern 'corner cases' ?
21:57:57 <Vorpal> what do you mean with that
21:58:16 -!- crystal-cola has quit (Quit: leaving).
21:58:16 <Vorpal> also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffraction
21:58:34 <Vorpal> in fact, full interference simulation would be even better...
22:00:32 <rapido> Vorpal: can you implement a turing complete language on top of a interference simulation? - i guess you can
22:00:45 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, kinda-sorta possible, but it makes the process take much longer.
22:00:46 <Vorpal> err. that was not my intention in this case
22:01:05 <zzo38> But is it possible?
22:01:14 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, offline rendering here in any case, and I'm making one image, not a movie. So time is not an issue.
22:01:36 <fizzie> So you're ready to compute for three years for your image?
22:01:48 <zzo38> Do you need faster computer?
22:02:02 <Vorpal> fizzie, oh, is that the time scale we are talking about?
22:02:03 <zzo38> Or, multi-cores?
22:02:12 <Vorpal> fizzie, a week or two: yes
22:02:28 <rapido> ah, multi cores - they make programming lousy
22:02:34 <Vorpal> ... what?
22:02:35 <fizzie> Vorpal: Just a generic "time is not an issue" comment; but it's certainly possible to easily add a couple of order of magnitudes in ray-tracering.
22:02:48 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, remind me, do raytracers work from light sources?
22:02:58 <zzo38> rapido: How do they make programming lousy?
22:03:05 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, there is both backward and forward ray tracing
22:03:15 <elliott> rapido: not if you program functionally.
22:03:20 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, so: both are possible, sometimes a mixture of them I think
22:03:52 <fizzie> I don't think raytracers generally do diffraction; I mean, they're *ray*tracers. (And even particle-oriented things like POV-Ray's photon mode might not bother with that level of detail.)
22:04:12 <rapido> zzo38: because you should abstract away multi-cores - but they always bite back through share memory :)
22:04:47 <Phantom_Hoover> I think the big problem is that you can't keep rays as rays: they don't bend when they diffract, they... fuzz.
22:05:01 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, anyway, the kind of stuff I need here is the detail of the iridescence of a CD. Yes I realize it will be slow. No clue how slow.
22:05:09 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, yes
22:05:15 <fizzie> Vorpal: Typically you just fake that sort of things.
22:05:26 <elliott> hmm, I wonder if I could do this with tup
22:05:36 <rapido> of course - if you program functionally you don't have share memory (if you don't consider the garbage collector)
22:05:39 <zzo38> rapido: Why should you abstract away multi-cores? Shouldn't you simply write the program for each core (some of which may run the same program)? Shared memory is needed for this to work good, isn't it?
22:05:40 <Vorpal> fizzie, but how would one compute how exactly the pattern would look?
22:05:56 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, okay, I'm willing to give up on ray tracing. Lets do wave propagation or something
22:06:12 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, I happen to have a DVD to hand.
22:06:15 <fizzie> Vorpal: LuxRender's "TODO/papers for inspiration" page points to http://www.dgp.toronto.edu/people/stam/reality/Research/pdf/diff.pdf -- a siggraph paper about anisotropic surface reflections. But it's not something that's implemented.
22:06:22 * Phantom_Hoover uses EMPIRICAL OBSERVATION
22:06:24 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, yes quite. That was just an example.
22:06:51 <Vorpal> fizzie, *ooh*
22:07:27 <Vorpal> fizzie, hrrm, that "Alias | wavefront" sounds familiar... Isn't it a commercial render?
22:08:26 <rapido> ellliot: 'tup'? very intriguing - but what is it?
22:08:48 <fizzie> Vorpal: It's a commercial company. But they did that Maya 3D modelling thing.
22:09:00 <fizzie> The paper uses a CD as an example.
22:09:02 <Vorpal> fizzie, right
22:09:04 <elliott> rapido: Oh, it's just a build system thing. I'm trying to automate boring things.
22:09:13 <Vorpal> fizzie, well yes, it is an obvious example
22:09:59 <rapido> elliott: boring stuff? hey - i'm into CMMi level 3 stuff - talk about boring
22:10:03 <fizzie> Vorpal: "We have implemented our reflection models as various shaders in our MAYA animation system" -- right.
22:10:03 <Vorpal> fizzie, if this can handle edge diffraction I'm in heaven
22:10:22 <elliott> rapido: well, tup is http://gittup.org/tup/
22:10:58 <rapido> DAGs! I love them! - did i mention that earlier?
22:11:09 <elliott> yes. yes you did :)
22:11:15 <elliott> rapido: but tup's are better because the arrows go upwards.
22:11:18 <elliott> it's faster that way. :D
22:11:45 <fizzie> Vorpal: Also the poor man's choice, http://matrep.parastudios.de/index.php?action=view&material=448-cd&fc=14 :p
22:12:08 <Vorpal> fizzie, that is a faked one
22:12:11 <rapido> upwards? is it purely functional?
22:12:33 <elliott> rapido: It's a build system, the WHOLE POINT is sideeffects :P
22:12:34 <fizzie> Well, in a sense they all are faked ones.
22:12:39 <Vorpal> fizzie, and since I'm not doing a CD, it isn't very useful. I too used a CD as an example :P
22:13:13 <Vorpal> fizzie, in fact I'm interested in edge diffraction, as can be seen around the shadow of a leaf or such.
22:13:38 <rapido> elliott: ah ha! i think build systems should generate immutable artifacts! - SO THERE!
22:13:54 <Vorpal> fizzie, meaning that the paper you linked doesn't really help
22:14:04 <Vorpal> not edge diffraction as far as I can tell
22:14:13 <fizzie> You might be asking for a bit too much there.
22:14:26 <elliott> rapido: but artifacts belong in a museum
22:14:29 <rapido> 'I apologize in advance if someone besmirches your honor and you are unable to properly defend yourself as a result.' <- VERY AMUSING
22:14:34 <elliott> ooh, museum would be a good immutable data storage name
22:14:36 <elliott> i'll write that one down
22:15:08 <rapido> elliott: oh, oh - can i use your invention 'museum'? it's great
22:15:19 <Vorpal> fizzie, I'm not asking for it to be fast. I'm asking for it to be possible to batch render over a couple of weeks on a modern computer to a reasonable quality, that is all.
22:15:25 <elliott> the client library will be called indiana
22:15:31 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, for a *CD*?
22:15:32 <elliott> now where do the nazis come in
22:15:52 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, no. that wouldn't be edge diffraction mostly
22:16:37 <fizzie> Vorpal: You could start browsing from http://arxiv.org/abs/1101.5490 and the Freniere1999/Tsingos2000 references; but I think it's quite unlikely you find these things implemented anywhere.
22:16:44 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, what are you possibly doing that involves edge diffraction?
22:17:11 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, rendering an image!
22:17:22 <Phantom_Hoover> *What* image?
22:17:36 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, why are you asking?
22:18:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, because then special-case cheating can be considered.
22:18:40 <fizzie> Yes, I think "just fake it" is quite likely to be the most practical answer for your question.
22:19:09 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, that of a tree with a light from behind is what I'm considering. Giving the right setup you should be able to see edge diffraction around the leaves.
22:19:26 <Vorpal> and in shadows
22:20:04 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, but yeah, if it is this hard I'll probably not invest time into it
22:20:07 <fizzie> Vorpal: Anyway, the arxiv paper has a GPU real-time CD example; and the famous double-slit experiment rendered, too.
22:20:35 <Vorpal> fizzie, nice
22:20:41 <fizzie> (I'm quite sure they don't bother sharing any code, though.)
22:22:38 <zzo38> Can you do it if they do not share the code too?
22:23:11 <fizzie> Theoretically speaking articles are supposed to be detailed enough for anyone to reproduce their results.
22:23:25 <fizzie> Quite often there's details missing, though.
22:23:29 <rapido> i want executable esoteric languages - above narrative esoteric languages - although i like story telling above reality.....
22:23:40 <zzo38> Then the article should be a WEB or CWEB program to ensure that no details are left out.
22:24:18 <zzo38> And then you can download the source file and compile it, and reproduce their results for sure!!
22:24:24 <fizzie> Even worse if it's just a four-page conference paper; those things take so many shortcuts.
22:24:55 <ais523> elliott: ouch, the darcs people are apparently implementing a rebase
22:25:07 <zzo38> ais523: What does that mean?
22:25:17 <ais523> in order to help it fix conflicts that itcan't figure out automatically, but still
22:25:21 <elliott> ais523: aieee
22:25:25 <ais523> zzo38: rebase is a feature of git that lets you edit history to make it neater
22:25:32 <ais523> and thus, less accurate to what actually happened
22:25:34 <elliott> ais523: we must team up with our enemies in the Camp team to stop this atrocity at once
22:25:37 <ais523> and it causes all sorts of issues
22:25:53 <Vorpal> ais523, seriously?
22:26:39 -!- sebbu2 has joined.
22:26:39 -!- sebbu2 has quit (Changing host).
22:26:39 -!- sebbu2 has joined.
22:26:39 <rapido> you can edit history without changing the past
22:27:19 <rapido> you just create an alternative history
22:27:39 <rapido> and leave the past (1 example of history) as is
22:27:45 <ais523> that's not what git does, though
22:27:50 <ais523> and then it gets confused because the histories don't match
22:29:06 <rapido> is git confluently persistent? - if not - it should be fixed to be that way
22:29:41 -!- sebbu has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
22:29:51 <zzo38> I don't know, I have set up a git repository and I do not use most of its features, so maybe I don't care either.
22:30:03 <Vorpal> fizzie, hm I wonder if http://arxiv.org/abs/1101.5490 has been implemented anywhere? Considering the date, of publishing, probably not
22:30:18 <Vorpal> well, outside their system
22:31:53 <fizzie> My guess is not.
22:31:55 <rapido> zzo38: has git bitten you in a way that you didn't expect?
22:32:14 <zzo38> rapido: No.
22:33:59 <rapido> zzo38: are you alone? or are you part of a big team?
22:34:16 <elliott> lol
22:34:20 <zzo38> rapido: I have only worked on it alone.
22:35:02 <Vorpal> most version control systems work flawlessly when only a single person is using it
22:36:57 <zzo38> It is however, design so that also other people can make fork, and make other projects too, including to download and copy it. So it is possible for other people to do it even though it is only single I work on it, but as far as I know, nobody does, but that's OK. If other people have suggestion they can write elsewhere instead.
22:37:04 <olsner> Vorpal: no, only the flawless ones
22:37:13 <rapido> zzo38: i'm alone but working with a lot of people: then i try to explain versioning / baselining- get stale looks ....and the scarce reply is: very interesting stuff!
22:37:18 <Vorpal> olsner, .
22:40:06 <rapido> checking out :) it's 00.30 in the netherlands
22:40:10 <rapido> later!
22:40:18 -!- rapido has quit (Quit: rapido).
22:40:30 <olsner> it should be 00.39 in the netherlands
22:41:47 * Phantom_Hoover reads Reddit some more, concludes that he is somehow socially competent.
22:42:06 <olsner> in what way?
22:42:44 <Phantom_Hoover> In the way that people acknowledge my existence on a regular basis, although admittedly there's a titanic confirmation bias acting against Reddit.
22:43:21 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: being mentioned in the context of being "that faggot" doesn't count as acknowledgement, Phantom_Hoover
22:43:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Hahahahaha.
22:50:40 -!- coppro has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:52:39 -!- copumpkin has quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.).
22:57:07 -!- pikhq has joined.
22:59:17 <pikhq> It would seem that Tup could use a way to specify an alternate means of seeing if a file has changed...
22:59:29 <elliott> pikhq: HAVE YOU BEEN READING THE LISTS
22:59:55 <pikhq> elliott: Yes, but I had actually been thinking that earlier today.
22:59:59 <elliott> pikhq: What I'm trying to do is bootstrap Kitten using tup.
23:00:15 <elliott> pikhq: Which means that going from only my handful of tup files and maybe some patches, it will download and build every stage of Kitten.
23:00:46 <pikhq> It'd be very nice to be able to, say, specify that a file is changed if the output from a program has changed.
23:00:58 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq!
23:01:04 <Phantom_Hoover> I have an American question!"
23:01:13 <Phantom_Hoover> Do you guys all think we have terrible teeth?
23:01:16 <pikhq> This would, incidentally, allow you to do optional checksumming.
23:01:18 <elliott> pikhq: I'm considering just doing : foo.stamp |> wget http://blah/ -O [percent]o |> foo/blah.
23:01:22 <elliott> pikhq: That'd be ugly, but /shrug
23:01:26 <elliott> It's probably what I'd do with make.
23:01:27 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: Yes, that is the meme.
23:01:44 <pikhq> elliott: Ugly, but it functions without any changes in Tup.
23:02:03 <elliott> pikhq: Yeah, and the other way would imply like five curl calls every "tup upd"...
23:02:34 <pikhq> elliott: Yeah, but five curl calls to just check the mtime of the remote file...
23:02:48 <elliott> Precisely.
23:02:52 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: The reason for this meme is that Americans place much more importance on the aesthetics of teeth than Britons.
23:03:09 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, ah.
23:03:42 <pikhq> *In fact*, the average Englishman has much healthier teeth than the average American. Just not as straight and sparkling.
23:04:49 <pikhq> elliott: Those remote calls won't take much time, especially with parallelism.
23:05:00 <elliott> pikhq: But but tup is so fast otherwise.
23:05:18 <pikhq> Though a more obvious problem with calling out to an external program to check for any changes is that it throws off the autoupdate feature.
23:05:26 <elliott> Right.
23:05:57 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, I can vouch that that is very much not the case in other parts of the UK.
23:06:16 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: How common are dental braces in the UK?
23:06:24 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, fairly.
23:06:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, in Scotland at least.
23:06:51 <Phantom_Hoover> I can't comment on anywhere else with much accuracy.
23:06:59 <pikhq> Define "fairly".
23:07:35 <Phantom_Hoover> As in, in a given group of people I know, some of them will probably have braces or retainers.
23:07:57 <pikhq> Is it a procedure that is going to be done on anyone without impeccable teeth that can afford it?
23:08:22 <olsner> they have braces? maybe you should tell them to stop coding C/C++/Java
23:08:47 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, it was recommended for me, but I do have a gap between my upper front teeth that my tongue can fit into.
23:08:55 <Phantom_Hoover> But not everyone, no.
23:09:17 <elliott> I have a totally fucked up tooth.
23:09:21 <Phantom_Hoover> A majority, or significant minority? Perhaps.
23:14:27 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, consider, though, that a friend of my mother's who is a primary school teacher in NI said that literally all of her class had rotten teeth.
23:14:53 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
23:15:48 <Phantom_Hoover> Like, 5- or 6- year olds.
23:16:23 -!- TeruFSX has joined.
23:16:46 <Phantom_Hoover> (Yes, she is one of those idiot teachers who result in almost all children being dead to education before they pass 8. No, I am not allowed to do anything about this.)
23:17:23 <Vorpal> night
23:18:57 <Vorpal> <Phantom_Hoover> Well, in Scotland at least. <-- YOU MEANT WALES
23:19:03 <Vorpal> (now, night, really)
23:19:49 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: I suggest you murder her.
23:20:17 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, she's retired now on medical grounds the details of which I am unaware.
23:20:22 -!- cheater- has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
23:20:47 <Phantom_Hoover> This surprised me until I realised that I had severely underestimated her age due to how mindmeltingly shallow she is.
23:21:39 <elliott> WE REQUIRE DETAILS
23:23:44 <Phantom_Hoover> Imagine your stereotypically shallow woman.
23:23:51 <Phantom_Hoover> There is no further detail.
23:23:55 <elliott> NO
23:24:36 <Phantom_Hoover> Imagine the aforementioned teaching.
23:24:50 <elliott> I REQUIRE
23:24:51 <elliott> DETAILS
23:25:01 <Phantom_Hoover> I don't know the details, or have repressed them so I can stay slightly afloat in the ocean of cynicism.
23:25:36 <elliott> ...TEACHER
23:29:01 <Phantom_Hoover> Well, she emanates this aura of "it is CRITICALLY IMPORTANT that children be FORCED TO LEARN TO READ by the time they are FIVE otherwise WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS ANYWAY"
23:29:28 <elliott> there are children who enter school without being able to read? :)
23:29:45 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, although it is inconceivable to such intellects as ours.
23:30:00 <pikhq> elliott: There are students who enter high school functionally illiterate.
23:30:02 <elliott> well, they can go to the retard school.
23:30:36 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, reading is not taught at all well.
23:30:54 <Phantom_Hoover> Or even consistently.
23:31:25 <elliott> just keep having babies and cull the ones who don't demonstrate above-average intelligence at the age of five, duh
23:32:05 <pikhq> It's pretty poorly taught pretty much everywhere that has non-trivial orthography->phoneme mapping.
23:32:37 <elliott> teach them lojban
23:32:42 <elliott> and dog
23:32:53 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, or even a sane way of spelling English.
23:33:05 <elliott> or dogban
23:33:08 <elliott> lojban for dogs
23:33:13 <elliott> (dogs are about as smart as five year olds)
23:33:22 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: Hard to do, courtesy of the wide variety of phonemic variation in English.
23:34:11 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, not *that* hard.
23:34:44 <Phantom_Hoover> The number of actual *collisions* in pronunciation is relatively low between accents.
23:35:10 <pikhq> It's just that each accent recognises a different set of phonemes...
23:35:55 <pikhq> Heck, it'd be somewhat annoying just accounting for rhotic vs. nonrhotic accents.
23:36:25 <elliott> I just imagined a Britain where Geordie is enforced by law.
23:36:27 <elliott> I am lolling.
23:36:27 <Phantom_Hoover> Even then. Collisions aren't all that common, and you can solve them generally by splitting them and merging it in accents that do so.
23:36:43 -!- elliott has left ("Leaving").
23:36:47 -!- elliott has joined.
23:36:50 <elliott> ARE YOU IMAGINING
23:37:49 <elliott> UM
23:37:49 <elliott> SILLY
23:37:56 <elliott> AND TERRIBLE
23:37:57 <elliott> DOES THAT HELP
23:37:59 <Sgeo__> Windows Media Player is my new .wav player
23:38:04 <Sgeo__> Because VLC currently sucks
23:38:08 <elliott> /ignore
23:38:43 <Sgeo__> (Well, not "sucks", but has one particular currently unbearable bug. Fixed in 1.2. 1.2 is not available to download as far as I can tell)
23:42:17 <elliott> pikhq: Is it just me, or is there no way to specify PATH in tup?
23:45:11 <pikhq> elliott: Well, it is passing the build commands to /bin/sh...
23:45:21 <elliott> pikhq: Well yes but I mean globally.
23:45:41 <pikhq> Doesn't seem to be any way of specifying environment variables globally in tup.
23:45:50 <elliott> that's a shame
23:45:54 <elliott> I may have to resort to PURE SHELL SCRIPTS
23:46:42 <pikhq> *wince*
23:47:04 <olsner> pikhq: windows ce?
23:47:47 <pikhq> olsner: No.
23:49:33 <zzo38> All of my plans in D&D game are those that the dungeon master fails to understand but it works anyways
23:49:41 <zzo38> (Sometimes even I fail to understand, too)
23:50:19 <Phantom_Hoover> So anyway I was looking in my fridge today and I found a shot of flu vaccine lying behind the vinaigrette.
23:51:02 <zzo38> Did you put that in the fridge?
23:51:10 <elliott> Tasty tasty flu vaccine.
23:59:01 <Yahweasel> Hmmm, chicken fnarfs so good.
23:59:36 <elliott> X-D
23:59:41 <elliott> Perhaps it does.
23:59:44 <elliott> It certainly TASTES good.
