00:32:41 <zzo38> Eventually the utility programs should be added in the "util" packages for TeXnicard, that can convert many of these formats into TFM/GF formats. Later on I might also add XFM (a format much like TFM) in case of more advanced features needed.

00:45:51 <elliott> this is probably an Xorg problem though because... because Xorg is terrible

12:58:55 <fizzie> I seem to recall I didn't like it quite as much as some other Neal Stephenson's books, but that's probably just me.

13:26:47 <variable> elliott: I'm curious what your thoughts are on the AV system being proposed. I don't know much about UK politics ;-)
13:26:54 <variable> today is voting day - right?
13:27:00 <elliott> yes
13:27:22 <elliott> AV is better than first-past-the-post, like every voting system apart from the Random Elephant Stomping method
13:27:46 <elliott> in a perfect universe we'd have Condorcet or even stochastic or whatever, but AV is much better than what we have
13:27:53 <elliott> there's exactly zero chance it will pass, though
13:28:10 <elliott> the FUD cloud is so thick that it's hovering outside my window as we speak
13:29:30 <variable> What do you mean?
13:29:37 <crystal-cola> AV is so complicated
13:29:44 <crystal-cola> It will cost tax payers trillions of dollars
13:29:45 <elliott> crystal-cola: you're joking right?
13:29:48 <variable> AV = IVR - right?
13:29:53 <crystal-cola> It means that the BNP get to choose who wins
13:29:56 <elliott> variable: if by IVR you mean IRV then yes
13:30:00 <elliott> crystal-cola: trololololololol :)
13:30:04 <variable> elliott: erm yeah - typo ;-)
13:30:26 <elliott> it's not the best method out there, but obviously it's far superior to FPTP
13:31:17 <variable> why was IRV chosen to be the one to spearhead the voting change?
13:31:31 <elliott> dunno?
13:31:37 -!- poiuy_qwert has quit (Quit: This computer has gone to sleep).
13:31:58 <elliott> if FUDders think AV is too complicated, imagine what they'd do to Condorcet
13:33:01 <variable> depends on on the resolution method used
13:33:17 <elliott> it really doesn't, you have no idea the kind of shit being said here :)
13:33:21 <elliott> there are literally leaflets going
13:33:29 <elliott> FPTP: All the votes are counted up and the person with the most votes wins
13:33:49 <variable> o.O
13:34:07 <variable> curios - who are the people against the FPTP system
13:34:22 <elliott> you mean the ones supporting AV?
13:34:28 <variable> yeah.
13:34:36 <variable> and who are the ones supporting it
13:34:50 <variable> I mean -> which are the main groups on either side ;-)
13:34:56 <elliott> the Lib Dems, who everyone hate, either because they're left-wing, or because the coalition has been ridiculously ineffective (they've teamed up with the right-wing Conservatives and have henceforth been the Conservatives' bitch)
13:35:03 <elliott> the people against AV (for FPTP) are everyone else
13:35:33 <elliott> and since it's being framed as it being a Lib Dem "demand" that the government is being forced to hold a referendum on, the negativity is incredible
13:35:47 <elliott> it's a bunch of bullshit

13:42:36 <elliott> oh god i love that figure thing
13:42:36 <elliott> like
13:42:42 <elliott> i read the no leaflet
13:42:50 <elliott> they list all these costs right
13:42:53 <elliott> that adopting av would have
13:42:54 <elliott> and then
13:43:00 <elliott> they ADD THE COST OF THE REFERENDUM
13:43:02 <elliott> to the total that av would cost
13:43:08 <elliott> despite the fact that that cost is already paid
13:43:22 <elliott> but it gets better, the sum they give is actually many millions more than the sum of the components.
13:43:25 <elliott> because fuck you :)
13:43:28 -!- augur has joined.
13:43:41 <elliott> i do like the idea that if av isn't adopted, they'll make like five million schools though
13:43:47 <elliott> and hire ten billion doctors
13:43:54 <elliott> im sure thats what will happen
13:45:34 <crystal-cola> I think "they" just don't want ANYTHING to change, because if the peopl start thinking that they can improve goverment... that coudl cause problems for control freaks that happen to be in power

14:24:09 -!- MigoMipo has joined.
14:34:23 <Gregor> I forget, which alternate voting system is AV?
14:34:32 <Gregor> Since "AV" means nothing really :P
14:35:11 <crystal-cola> well it means you put preferences and the if there's not a strong majority it takes second favorites etc. into account
14:35:22 <crystal-cola> instead of just a cross for the one you want
14:35:28 <elliott> "You know that bit on the Last Night of the Proms where they play "Jerusalem" and everyone in England sings along? I want you to imagine right now that they're all singing "No" at you. Not in a mean way. In a loving, patriotic way. But also sternly. With bows of burning gold and chariots of fire."

14:36:34 <crystal-cola> ??
14:37:06 <elliott> crystal-cola: Gregor was asking what voting system AV actually is :P
14:37:09 <elliott> The answer is instant-runoff.
14:37:21 <crystal-cola> it's called AV
14:37:25 <elliott> No, it's not.
14:37:29 * Gregor bashes crystal-cola's head into a wall.
14:37:30 <elliott> Nobody called it AV before this referendum.
14:37:34 <elliott> It's called IRV.
14:37:34 <crystal-cola> fuck you guyts
14:37:36 <Gregor> AV is a retarded name.
14:37:39 <elliott> crystal-cola: what
14:37:40 <Gregor> AV means "alternative voting"
14:37:43 <crystal-cola> you're retarded
14:37:46 <Gregor> Every voting system is an alternative to another voting system.
14:37:46 <elliott> Gregor: It means alternative /vote/.
14:37:53 <Gregor> elliott: Oh, sorry :P
14:37:53 <elliott> Gregor: i.e. you have alternate VOTES for candidates.

14:38:22 <Gregor> Right, but there are also dozens of voting systems that fit that description.
14:38:45 <elliott> Clearly we should name voting systems with a compact representation of their algorithms :P

14:43:09 <Gregor> Of course they do. They have to print ballots, institute new counting systems, train the relevant people on how to tally properly, etc etc.
14:43:10 <elliott> crystal-cola: So what's this about being retarded
14:43:25 <pikhq> Gregor: I said "notable".
14:43:29 <elliott> Gregor: Hey, I was going to approach that point with wilful non-understanding.
14:43:45 <pikhq> Gregor: i.e. cost *over* what you're already paying just to run an election.
14:43:48 <fizzie> Gregor: We should name them based on some lisp code implementing the counting, and then taking the initial characters of the most important (sub)expressions. So do you prefer ((((((((( over (((((((((((((((?
14:43:52 <Gregor> pikhq: Well, how much does it cost to NOT kill a baby?
14:44:01 <Gregor> pikhq: It costs about the same to implement a new voting system.
14:44:16 <pikhq> Gregor: Fairly absurd amount, if by "NOT kill" you mean "spare no expense in saving". :P
14:44:30 <Gregor> No, I just mean "NOT kill"
14:44:35 <crystal-cola> You asked what something is and I explained it, that is not justification for being cunts
14:44:41 <Gregor> Basically, if you institute AV, then they throw babies in furnaces.
14:44:48 <pikhq> Oh, so straight-up inaction?
14:45:01 <fizzie> Gregor: All the therapy to treat those people who get depressed when they don't get to kill any babies, etc etc.
14:45:06 <pikhq> It costs the same amount to not institute AV!
14:45:08 <crystal-cola> you asked an ambiguous question and I didn't get what you meant, so go fuck yourself
14:45:26 <pikhq> Otherwise, they'll throw babies in furnaces!

14:45:53 <elliott> <crystal-cola> You asked what something is and I explained it, that is not justification for being cunts
14:45:57 <elliott> I wasn't a cunt.

14:46:37 <pikhq> fizzie: Which is "not very" ATM.
14:46:57 <fizzie> pikhq: But if you burn enough people, there's less to eat and/or use the electricity.
14:47:17 <fizzie> You just need to find the right balance there.
14:47:28 <pikhq> Nah, that'll just result in more fuckin'.

14:51:51 <elliott> Scrolling up I didn't even mention anyone at all, just their answers :P
14:53:06 <Gregor> Anyway, the point is that the vote is actually "institute AV (+ bonus baby furnaces)" vs "do not institute AV (and no baby furnaces)"

15:18:59 <elliott> thats britain for you
15:19:06 <elliott> What exactly are you referring to
15:19:32 <Gregor> Apparently "pip pip cheerio" (in two of the top 10 or so image results) refers to gigantism of particular intimate body parts.
15:19:48 <Gregor> In a condition I can only assume is called pippipcheeriism
15:19:51 <elliott> They appear to originate from tumblr posts.

15:35:12 <Vorpal> elliott, it makes you irritated for a start.
15:35:18 <elliott> You misspelled "annoying and stupid". And I'm not irritated.
15:35:29 <elliott> Nor annoyed actually, things can be annoying without actually annoying.
15:35:45 <elliott> Or rather something annoying does not necessarily annoy enough to cause one to become annoyed.

15:42:34 <elliott> Eventually, the Commons voted 181-166 not to introduce the Alternative Vote system, and by a larger majority against PR. Just before the vote was taken, the prime minister, Andrew Bonar Law, at the head of a minority Conservative administration, admonished MPs in language that still has an unfortunate resonance: "I don't believe the country cares twopence one way or the other about either proportional representation or the alternative vote." What
15:42:34 <elliott> the public expected, he said, was that the politicians should make up their minds.

17:37:31 <Gregor> That might actually be too little shit to be verifiably shit at all.
17:37:50 <coppro> there is utterly no reason to give a shit since this holiday makes no logical sense
17:38:13 <elliott> Nor does any holiday :P
17:38:21 <elliott> But I gotta say, I'm totally not feeling the vibes of this one.
17:38:40 <coppro> some holidays make sense
17:38:42 <Gregor> How about if I say that it's "get drunk for no real reason" day
17:38:51 <elliott> coppro: Define "makes sense".
17:39:05 <elliott> How is a sense-making holiday distinguish from a non-sense-making one
17:39:08 <coppro> elliott: Is a celebration of something worthy of celebration
17:39:18 <coppro> e.g. a national holiday makes sense
17:39:24 <coppro> Boxing Day does not
17:39:39 <elliott> So, uh, valid holidays are about consumerism, nationalism or getting drunk.
17:39:46 <Gregor> Mostly consumerism.
17:39:49 <Lymia> By that notion, the only holiday worth celebrating is....
17:39:51 * Lymia checks
17:39:52 <elliott> And getting drunk.
17:39:53 <elliott> And nationalism.
17:39:57 <monqy> what's a holiday
17:39:59 <Lymia> None of them.
17:40:08 <Gregor> Both getting drunk and nationalism are just facades for consumerism :P
17:40:08 <elliott> monqy: a day when you get drunk, consume a lot, and national (verb)
17:40:27 <elliott> Gregor: I dunno, nationalism is pretty strong in itself :P
17:40:29 <monqy> I'd say every day but I never do any of those
17:40:35 <monqy> it would be the worst lie
17:40:41 <Gregor> Dood, I'm gonna national 'til I've painted the whole world red white and blue! (But not French red white and blue)
17:40:48 <coppro> depending on the manner of celebration, birthdays may count
17:41:34 <elliott> coppro: how are national holidays celebrating something worthy of celebration
17:41:43 <elliott> any more than holidays about consumerism
17:41:59 <elliott> Nationalism is no more (probably less) logical than consumerism, after all, as stupid as the word "logical" is as a system to rank things
17:42:01 <monqy> holidays about getting drunk
17:42:41 <monqy> are drunk people hilarious or scary I can't make up my mind
17:42:53 <Lymia> Depends on who they are
17:43:15 <Gregor> Bahaha

18:08:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Gregor, yes. Yes I do.
18:08:43 <Phantom_Hoover> I mean, it's not even like the rest of the imperial system.
18:09:16 <Gregor> ... in what way? The rest of the system isn't self-similar in any way :P
18:09:58 <oerjan> furlongs, fortnight, firkin, fahrenheit; i'd say it fits perfectly.
18:10:04 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, but the imperial system evolved organically from fairly sensible roots which didn't work together well.
18:10:13 <Phantom_Hoover> Fahrenheit was just designed stupidly from the start.

18:13:01 <Gregor> Farhenheit was defined sensibly based on flawed assumptions.
18:13:34 <Gregor> It was designed so you would virtually never need negative numbers (fail), and so that anybody with a ranch and some brine could figure out the temperature scale :P
18:13:58 <Gregor> But yeah, it was /designed/, it didn't just grow from necessity.
18:14:09 <oerjan> clearly most scientists had ranches at the time
18:14:48 <oerjan> nowadays it's only texan scientists

18:24:19 <elliott> ever
18:24:20 <elliott> OR
18:24:25 <elliott> maybe ill do that fixed point scoring thing
18:24:43 <oerjan> ...i thought you already did.
18:24:52 <elliott> yep but always time to start again
18:25:18 <oerjan> wait didn't that fixed point scoring thing ever get done?
18:25:20 <elliott> Gregor: The report stuff would still work if it was in another language, right? i.e. one where I don't have to deal with fucking LAPACK /directly/ :P
18:25:26 <elliott> oerjan: It got specified but never implemented.
18:26:06 <elliott> oerjan: see http://esoteric.voxelperfect.net/wiki/Talk:BF_Joust#Scoring
18:26:26 <oerjan> i know, i just thought someone had done it
18:26:28 <Gregor> elliott: Depends on the language.
18:27:02 <Gregor> http://codu.org/projects/trac/fythe/ <-- look, I've upgraded my trac pages
18:27:17 <elliott> I approve :P
18:27:38 <elliott> Gregor: "Depends on the language" -- is this a "the package needs installing" thing or a "NO LANGUAGES I DON'T TOLERATE ENOUGH" thing? :P
18:28:09 <Gregor> It's a "no languages I hate" thing :P
18:28:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Which languages do you hate?
18:28:36 <elliott> Gregor: How much would you say you hate Haskell :P
18:28:44 <elliott> It'd just be so convenient ;_;
18:28:57 <Gregor> I hate all languages, so it's a grain-of-salt kinda rule :P
18:29:02 <Gregor> elliott: A lot less than anything in the Lisp family.
18:29:20 <elliott> Gregor: What about ZEPTO============>
18:29:22 <elliott> TO THE FUTURE
18:29:26 <Phantom_Hoover> Gregor, your hatred of Lisp still perplexes me.
18:29:37 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover: Syntax. I ♥ syntax.
18:29:52 <monqy> ew syntax :(
18:30:03 <Gregor> I think I'll take this no-trac opportunity to unify all my project logins.

18:31:40 <elliott> Gregor: I'll unify YOUR project logins.

18:32:08 <Gregor> elliott: I'm definitely not going to reinstall Trac.
18:32:17 <elliott> Gregor: But the page said they were TEMPORARILY down.
18:32:19 <elliott> I feel BETRAYED.
18:32:32 <Gregor> elliott: They'll come back up ... as something other than Trac :P
18:32:45 <Gregor> Once I find something tolerable >_>
18:32:49 <elliott> Who needs bug trackers, wiki + repo viewer heyoo
18:33:00 <elliott> In fact, a wiki is a perfectly decent bug tracker if you have few, and non-annoying, people :P
18:33:03 <Gregor> Really all I used it for was login management :P
18:33:16 <elliott> (tbh I'd be more likely to add an item to a wiki page than to go through Bugzillaesque hell...)

18:38:32 <monqy> these special effects are pretty rad. is this an ad?
18:38:38 <elliott> coppro: oh, is it?
18:38:42 <elliott> coppro: why do they have this crackpot then
18:39:30 <monqy> oh it wasn't an ad
18:39:31 <coppro> elliott: TEDx events are completely run indepedently, they just share the TED brand
18:39:35 <monqy> the music is still going why is it going
18:40:13 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, yeah, this is hilarious.
18:40:19 <monqy> I'm laughing
18:40:41 <Phantom_Hoover> Whee, numerology!
18:41:18 <Phantom_Hoover> OK commentary cannot express this.

18:43:15 <monqy> how many drugs
18:43:19 <Phantom_Hoover> SBURB WAS MADE BY THE FREEMASONS
18:43:19 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover: well it's true in a yin-yang sort of way
18:43:20 <Phantom_Hoover> YES
18:43:20 <elliott> monqy: all the drugs
18:43:21 <elliott> all of them

18:43:45 <Phantom_Hoover> "Negative backdraft counterspace"
18:43:48 <elliott> OUR DNA IS A COIL
18:44:18 <Phantom_Hoover> Apparently tori are heat sinks.
18:44:47 <elliott> DOUBLING.

18:45:04 <oerjan> this mortal coil has lotsa cuil
18:45:16 <Phantom_Hoover> Apparently a tornado is more powerful than an atom bomb.
18:45:21 <elliott> this is the most amazing video ive ever watched
18:45:22 <Phantom_Hoover> Also a flying saucer.
18:45:29 <Phantom_Hoover> He;
18:45:34 <elliott> oh wow
18:45:36 <Phantom_Hoover> He's just sticking words together now.
18:45:39 <elliott> tachyons gravitons monopoles
18:45:42 <elliott> hahahahaha he just like
18:45:49 <Phantom_Hoover> And he's apparently made a desktop black hole.
18:45:50 <elliott> strung together fifteen random hypothetical particles
18:45:56 <elliott> and called them all the same thing
18:45:58 <elliott> also dark energy etc
18:46:03 <elliott> this is amazing
18:46:08 <Phantom_Hoover> It's a ball bearing going back and forth in a cup he's holding.
18:46:12 <monqy> even the audience laughed
18:46:17 <monqy> I love you, audience
18:46:23 <elliott> the only thing that comes from the hole is zero

18:48:42 <elliott> gejesus
18:48:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Yeah, I think the commentary basically doesn't help here.
18:48:47 <Phantom_Hoover> Just watching it is enough.
18:48:56 <elliott> god no this is amazing i have to share this with the whole world
18:49:21 * Phantom_Hoover watches the first lecture, reads comments
18:49:23 <elliott> why is this focusing on the ball cup thing
18:49:24 <Phantom_Hoover> "Ah yes, arithmetic modulo 9, I forgot to mention that. Before Rodin nobody thought it was possible."
18:49:27 <elliott> while scary noises play
18:49:33 <elliott> and he talks about curing diseases
18:49:35 <elliott> its pretty fucking disturbing
18:49:38 <Phantom_Hoover> Modular arithmetic: invented in the 21st century.

18:50:30 <elliott> and it goes on to an advanced series
18:50:31 <elliott> dudes
18:50:32 <elliott> lets so watch this
18:50:34 <elliott> should we watch this guys
18:50:35 <monqy> yes

18:50:52 <elliott> lets do this man
18:50:58 <Phantom_Hoover> where doing this bro
18:51:26 <elliott> where making it transpire
18:51:44 <elliott> you might call it gravitons...you might call it radiant energy...
18:51:47 <elliott> ahahah e equals mc sauqared
18:51:57 <elliott> monqy: are you doing this bro this is so fuckin communal
18:52:01 <monqy> yes
18:52:04 <monqy> i am doing this bro
18:52:10 <elliott> we should get together and watch all this guys videos sometime
18:52:22 <Phantom_Hoover> monqy, are you makin this hapen
18:52:30 <monqy> yes i am makin this hapen
18:52:36 <elliott> yo uforgot the g dishpit
18:52:39 <elliott> dishpit :D:D:DD:
18:52:50 <elliott> leaves a grain on anything
18:52:52 <oerjan> actually not stochastic ones
18:52:53 <elliott> it is undecaying and eternal
18:52:58 <elliott> oerjan: well yes :D
18:53:18 <elliott> MOST
18:53:18 <elliott> GREAT
18:53:19 <elliott> NAME
18:53:19 <elliott> OF
18:53:20 <elliott> GOD
18:53:26 <Gregor> <oerjan> <elliott> ALL VOTING SYSTEMS ARE IDENTICAL IF THERE ARE ONLY TWO OPTIONS <-- random vote != majority vote :P
18:53:29 <oerjan> that might be an argument against them...
18:53:29 <monqy> mathematical decryption of the most great name of god
18:53:40 <elliott> oerjan: well stochastihastically they're equivalent aren't they
18:53:45 <oerjan> Gregor: thank you for rephrasing my point
18:53:47 <elliott> but two option things are irrelevant anyway
18:53:48 <elliott> for this
18:53:50 <elliott> as in
18:53:51 <Gregor> oerjan: UR WELCUM
18:53:52 <elliott> a voting system
18:53:56 <Gregor> More fairly, in some systems abstentions are considered as "no"s
18:54:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Numbers are music!
18:54:16 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover: Music is pornography!
18:54:18 <monqy> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
18:54:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Gregor, pornography is a tree!
18:54:44 <elliott> oh my god
18:54:45 <elliott> base tenism
18:54:49 <Phantom_Hoover> Apparently 123456789 are the only digits.
18:54:51 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover: Trees are made of sand!
18:54:53 <elliott> ahahahaah
18:54:57 <Phantom_Hoover> ZERO IS A FICTION
18:54:59 <elliott> numerology
18:55:00 <elliott> numerology
18:55:03 <elliott> and computer science
18:55:13 <oerjan> sand is made of the ground sould of the damned
18:55:18 <oerjan> *souls
18:55:22 <elliott> oerjan: dude you have to watch this omg
18:55:33 <monqy> you can model a higher dimensional energy
18:55:36 <Gregor> oerjan: But alas, the damned are numbers.
18:55:39 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, don't, he might believe it.
18:55:41 <oerjan> i don't watch videos much
18:55:42 <elliott> "this is because base 10 is inherent to nature."
18:55:48 <Gregor> elliott: lolwut?
18:55:49 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: come on hes just a crackpot not an idiot
18:55:51 <elliott> Gregor: yep
18:55:55 <elliott> Gregor: watch and learn bitch
18:56:00 <Phantom_Hoover> All the functions of math!

18:57:34 <monqy> thanks for doubling
18:57:34 <elliott> ahshah\fhghy
18:57:35 <elliott> hj
18:57:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Apparently 2*8%10 is 7.
18:57:53 <monqy> 8 dobuled is 16 and 6+1 is 7
18:57:58 <Phantom_Hoover> YES
18:58:04 <Phantom_Hoover> He's clearly a programmer.
18:58:11 <Phantom_Hoover> If it's off by one, just fudge it.
18:58:16 <Gregor> Does anybody have a light project/login management system that isn't made of fail?
18:58:22 <elliott> Gregor: redmine seems...ok?
18:58:27 <elliott> Gregor: seriously though, I'd just use a wiki :P
18:58:31 <elliott> structure is for fages
18:58:45 <Gregor> Darn those phages.
18:58:50 <elliott> six plus four equals ten and one plus zero comes back to one
18:58:51 <Gregor> Killin' all my bacteria.
18:58:58 <monqy> oh daaaaaaang this math
18:58:59 <elliott> and one plus one is two
18:59:32 <monqy> I want to see a proof of this
18:59:38 <Phantom_Hoover> "No matter what numbers I take I can add some more to get the ones I want"
18:59:55 <Phantom_Hoover> "There's no possible way to break this doubling sequence"
19:00:01 <Phantom_Hoover> Unless... I ADD FIVE
19:00:20 <monqy> goodbye part 1 hello part 2
19:00:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Apparently doubling is essential to vibration.
19:00:26 <elliott> source of all motion
19:00:28 <Phantom_Hoover> I have to to English now, regrettably.
19:00:39 <Phantom_Hoover> WAIT TIL I'M BACK GUYS
19:00:40 <elliott> no no no keep going this is amazing
19:00:43 <elliott> well im going on fuck you
19:00:48 <elliott> we'll enjoy it together monqy
19:01:00 * Gregor is sad that he can't watch it :P
19:01:07 <elliott> Gregor: You're missing out on so much.
19:01:11 <elliott> its so amazing
19:01:32 <elliott> infinity of deration
19:01:33 <Phantom_Hoover> Apparently differentiation occurs after 64 cells are formed.
19:01:41 <elliott> it adds an axis
19:01:49 <elliott> to c to c to c is doubling
19:02:03 <Phantom_Hoover> That's true, actually.
19:02:21 <Phantom_Hoover> OK, I should really go now otherwise the computer will be snatched from my cold dead hands.
19:02:25 <elliott> sometimes its caleld a chain reaction
19:02:28 <elliott> or a geometric progresion
19:02:31 <monqy> !!!!
19:02:32 <elliott> another example of doubling
19:02:35 <Phantom_Hoover> Did he just say neutrino rather than neutron
19:02:35 <elliott> the binary code in computers
19:02:57 <monqy> half of .5 is .25 and 2+5 is 7
19:03:06 <elliott> half of one is point five and thus five
19:03:16 <elliott> point one two five
19:03:18 <elliott> which equals eight
19:03:38 <elliott> daaah i forget what the number is
19:04:11 <monqy> it is the spin continuum which the universe is on
19:04:22 <monqy> the universe is on a treadmill
19:04:24 <monqy> a bounded infinity
19:05:31 <elliott> what happens when i double thee.
19:05:33 <elliott> three
19:05:57 <monqy> half of 3 is 1.5 which is 6
19:07:28 <elliott> the nine is the queen of the chess game
19:07:37 <elliott> what happens if you double nine
19:07:43 <elliott> omg
19:07:46 <elliott> nine odubled is eighteen
19:07:48 <elliott> one plus eight is nine
19:07:49 <monqy> 9
19:07:50 <elliott> nine doubled is nine
19:07:51 <monqy> 9
19:07:53 <monqy> 9
19:07:55 <elliott> 9
19:07:55 <elliott> 9
19:08:04 <elliott> omg nine is in a loop with itself
19:08:06 <elliott> kink
19:08:07 <elliott> y
19:08:10 <monqy> it's polarizing the numbers
19:08:19 <Gregor> So basically this guy is in some weird obsession with summing all the digits of a number.
19:08:27 <monqy> pretty much
19:08:30 <Gregor> Because base-10 is perfection for some retard reason.

19:10:37 <elliott> this is is ofun
19:10:38 <monqy> you should start at part 1. you should also start at the tedx talk.
19:10:42 <elliott> 1251 is the equation for the Most Great Name.

19:11:10 <elliott> this one is buffering badly :(
19:11:32 <elliott> i see spirographs in the sidebar for advanced vortex math
19:11:37 <elliott> are you looking forward to that expert level monqy
19:11:38 <elliott> i know i am
19:11:47 <monqy> so looking forward to it
19:11:59 <elliott> what do you mean by mirrors
19:12:00 <elliott> the one and the eight
19:12:03 <elliott> they dont look like mirrsors
19:12:06 <monqy> you don't have 10 fingers you have .5
19:12:10 <elliott> ...haha what
19:12:12 <elliott> does he say that
19:12:27 <monqy> when 1 is positive going up 8 is negative going down
19:12:45 <elliott> id listen to this shit like most people listen to podcasts
19:13:36 <elliott> and one plus one is two
19:13:57 <monqy> I still want to know what 1251 means
19:14:03 <monqy> aside from being the equation for the most great name
19:14:06 <monqy> sorry
19:14:09 <monqy> Most Great Name
19:14:23 <elliott> its how you loop the multiplications or something i guess
19:14:41 <monqy> oh god it's zooming in
19:14:51 <elliott> cant wait
19:15:07 <elliott> twelve, which is three

I didn't have time or enough knowledge of the algorithms used to webify the program (i.e. convert to (Enhanced) CWEB), although it might be good idea to have that port too. But it is very good and I use the C version of LodePNG in my programs.

20:30:47 <ais523> and the judge rejected both, and said that Oracle is only allowed 3 claims, and Google 8 prior art defences against them (in total)

20:43:28 <cheater15> ais523, wtf sort of justice is that
20:44:29 <ais523> cheater15: I think the court was being sensible; the way patents work is that the inventor lists every possible use for the invention in the patent, then when they sue someone, point to what in particular they're violating
20:44:46 <ais523> in this case, it's more or less the court asking "so what part of your patent did Google violate" and Oracle saying "all of it!"
20:44:46 * Sgeo pokes comex hoping for a response, even if it's I can't/I won't/I can't and even if I could, won't
20:44:57 <pikhq_> 5 days of class remaining.
20:44:59 <pikhq_> And 5 tests.
20:45:43 <ais523> and this response by the court was more or less "I don't believe you, and if Google is doing that much wrong, why don't you pick the most obvious abuses and get yourself an open and shut case?"

21:25:04 <elliott> were watching the advanced tier
21:25:09 <elliott> just ... not today :D
21:25:15 <monqy> im watching advanced right now
21:25:23 <elliott> without even doing the intro
21:25:24 <elliott> how could you
21:25:27 <elliott> youre not fucking prepared
21:25:29 <elliott> this is irresponsible
21:25:30 <elliott> im disgusted
21:26:31 <Cheery> I'm getting my sleep now. but tomorrow I'm done assuming I don't waste as much time on playing games as I did today.
21:27:49 <oerjan> <elliott> youre not fucking prepared <-- i guess he got sucked in
21:27:57 <elliott> hes never going to escape
21:28:01 <elliott> the math vortex
21:28:58 <tswett> hey guys how do i inplement continuation passong style??
21:29:40 <monqy> what do you mean implement
21:29:43 <tswett> In all seriosity, I'm puzzling over how to write an interpreter for a nice and simple lambda calculoid with a callCC primitive.
21:30:07 <oerjan> um every function takes an extra argument, its continuation
21:30:52 <tswett> What's the type of my reduce function going to be? PExpr -> (PExpr -> PExpr) -> PExpr, where the first argument is the expression to reduce and the second is the continuation?
21:31:06 <tswett> (The P is there for obvious reasons.)
21:31:34 <monqy> this vortex math is too advanced
21:31:57 <oerjan> tswett: well assuming PExprs are used both for expressions and for results...
21:31:58 <monqy> what is he doing with his hands what is he tracing
21:32:03 <oerjan> including the final program result
21:32:10 * Phantom_Hoover → sleep
21:32:15 <tswett> oerjan: yep.
21:32:25 <tswett> There is no printing here.
21:32:27 <oerjan> then that should work.
21:33:17 <oerjan> although it might be more type safe to let the final program result be polymorphic, PExpr -> (PExpr -> a) -> a
21:33:22 * tswett swaps the order of these arguments, since the continuation really should be last.
21:33:42 <oerjan> since then you won't accidentally return a result normally instead of passing it to the continuation
21:33:51 <tswett> oerjan: yes, I think you're right.
21:34:20 * tswett realizes that the continuation already was last.
21:34:31 <oerjan> :D
21:34:38 * oerjan was about to say
21:35:28 <tswett> And I changed the type signature to make the continuation first. :(
21:36:21 <tswett> My, this code looks very imperative.
21:36:31 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
21:36:58 <oerjan> CPS is essentially monadic, you can more-or-less convert between those
21:37:28 <tswett> Between whose?

21:37:42 <tswett> ("Whose" is the plural of "what". Trust me.)
21:39:01 <oerjan> i'm just pointing out one reason why it looks imperative
21:39:27 -!- nescience has joined.
21:40:12 -!- nescience has left.
21:40:23 * tswett nods.
21:40:29 <pikhq> tswett: If you're using Haskell, you might want to use the CPS monad...
21:40:39 <oerjan> indeed
21:40:51 <oerjan> @src Cont
21:40:51 <lambdabot> newtype Cont r a = Cont { runCont :: (a -> r) -> r }
21:41:09 <pikhq> Otherwise, well, continuations are pretty easy conceptually (and somewhat annoying code-wise) if you need to do it manually.
21:41:15 <pikhq> Only thing you need is closures.
21:41:43 <tswett> Hm. I'm not distinguishing between evaluated code and unevaluated code. Some code may end up evaluated many times.
21:41:49 <tswett> Oh well.
21:41:55 <oerjan> tswett: i noticed that
21:42:35 <oerjan> in some unlambda scribblings i distinguished between expressions and functions
21:43:10 <tswett> How many Unlambda interpreters have you written? :P
21:43:52 <oerjan> lessee there was haskell, ocaml, a conversion into underload...
21:44:08 <oerjan> and the self-interpreter (essentially meta-circular)
21:44:34 <oerjan> the underload conversion i only mentioned in the channel since ais523 said he'd made a much simpler one
21:44:34 <elliott> i never met a circular i didn't vortex
21:44:45 <elliott> and if you halve one you get five
21:44:50 <ais523> oerjan: I deleted it by mistake
21:44:56 <elliott> ais523: WE ARE AWAY
21:44:58 <elliott> AWARE
21:45:01 <elliott> and are monitoring your actions
21:46:21 <oerjan> the ocaml one was the first one where i used this type idea, which i then essentially translated to the underload
21:47:05 <Cheery> initiating sleep patterns..
21:47:39 <Cheery> the best design patterns ever
21:47:56 -!- Cheery has quit (Quit: Lost terminal).
21:47:57 <oerjan> newtype Expr = Expr (Cont -> Func); data Func = Func (Expr -> Cont -> Func); newtype Cont = Cont (Func -> Func);
21:48:34 <oerjan> the Func one uses Expr rather than Func because of unlambda's d function, it can be Func otherwise
21:49:42 <oerjan> wait data should be newtype there too
21:49:55 <oerjan> the idea was to get only pure functions
21:50:19 <oerjan> oh and this ignores IO
21:50:33 <oerjan> (ocaml and underload are both impure for that)
21:51:17 <oerjan> (and those are haskell types nevertheless, i haven't touched ocaml for years ;D)
21:52:01 <oerjan> tswett: anyway for unlambda Expr represents unevaluated code and Func represents evaluated code
21:52:14 <tswett> Neato.
21:53:19 <oerjan> changing all the last -> Func's into -> MyMonad WhatEver should make it work in haskell with IO too
21:53:53 * tswett ponders what apply (PApp exprf exprx) expry cont is supposed to do.
21:54:03 <oerjan> although you might want to mix in the "current character" data to get just -> IO () at the end
21:54:33 <tswett> Evaluate its arguments and then assume that the PApp became something that's not a PApp, I guess.
21:54:41 * tswett modifies his program to make that assumption true.
21:54:59 <oerjan> tswett: eval exprf $ \f -> eval exprx $ \x -> reallyApply f x cont
21:55:08 <tswett> Lovely.
21:55:22 <elliott> eval for yourself
21:55:33 <oerjan> oh wait i missed expry
21:55:43 <tswett> Nah, I'm fine doing it wrong. :P
21:55:53 <oerjan> i thought you were asking about the basic case
21:56:59 <oerjan> tswett: well if you distinguish unevaluated vs. evaluated, then apply (PApp exprf exprx) expry cont should be a type error
21:56:59 <tswett> apply (PApp exprf exprx) expry cont = error "Trying to apply an unevaluated function"

21:58:21 <elliott> oh wait

21:58:58 <elliott> I WIIIIIN
21:59:03 <oerjan> okay.
21:59:08 <elliott> also
21:59:10 <elliott> did you notice the

22:04:34 <antndsnt-expry> perfection is achieved
22:04:37 <tswett> oerjan: that could easily be something like it.
22:04:41 <antndsnt-expry> not when there are no more vowels to add
22:04:41 <tswett> Or, perhaps, it.
22:04:46 <antndsnt-expry> but when there are no more vowels left to take away
22:04:56 <oerjan> tswett: i actually get slightly nervous about your not distinguishing evaluated and unevaluated code
22:05:07 * antndsnt-expry starts smashing shades indiscriminately against oerjan's head
22:05:07 <cheater15> ok... debugfs is INSANELY slow.
22:05:12 <tswett> oerjan: yeah, I should probably be more nervous about that.
22:05:29 <cheater15> why is debugfs THIS slow?
22:06:08 <cheater15> it has been running "icheck" for several very long minutes now
22:06:43 <cheater15> also, can an ext3 block be shared by multiple inodes?
22:06:58 <antndsnt-expry> oerjan: how are your MORPHISMS
22:07:01 * antndsnt-expry continues smashing shades indiscriminately against oerjan's head
22:07:21 <cheater15> mighty morphisms?
22:08:20 <antndsnt-expry> oerjan's tactic of ignoring me can only work perfectly for so long

22:08:25 <tswett> apply PCallCC exprx cont = error "I haven't written this yet"

22:15:12 <tswett> I want to apply exprx to a reification of cont, I guess. Applying the reification to anything should cause the current continuation to be tossed out and the old one to be used.
22:17:18 <oerjan> apply (RCont c) exprx = returnTo c exprx
22:17:29 <oerjan> (sadly plain return is taken)
22:18:18 <oerjan> or i guess PCont in your naming scheme
22:18:47 <oerjan> er
22:18:58 <oerjan> *apply (PCont c) exprx cont = returnTo c exprx
22:21:17 <tswett> Where did R come from?
22:21:25 <oerjan> reified
22:22:13 * tswett nods.
22:22:16 <tswett> apply (PCont contx) exprx cont = contx exprx
22:22:16 <tswett> apply PCallCC exprx cont = reduce exprx $ \rexprx -> reduce (PApp exprx (PCont cont)) cont
22:22:19 <tswett> Aye?
22:22:48 <tswett> Now I just have to write "lambdaSub sym rexprf rexprx".
22:23:13 <oerjan> um no rexprx is already reduced
22:23:51 <oerjan> apply PCallCC exprx cont = reduce exprx $ \rexprx -> apply rexprx (PCont cont)cont
22:24:08 <tswett> Yes, you're right.
22:25:00 <oerjan> except i thought apply should have _both_ first arguments already reduced?
22:25:22 <oerjan> *first two
22:25:52 <oerjan> unless you were doing lazy evaluation, in which case callCC does not make sense...
22:25:53 <tswett> It does but need not. :P
22:25:53 -!- elliott has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
22:26:25 <tswett> It evaluates everything, even if we know that it's already been evaluated.

22:31:31 <oerjan> \v -> case (v . V $ const True, v . V $ const False) of ...
22:32:22 <tswett> Say 'A' is constantly true, and 'B' is constantly false. Then we can add two more values: 'C', which is true at 'A' and false at 'B', and 'D', which is false at 'A' and true at 'B'. Then... uh...
22:32:23 <oerjan> tswett: also that should clearly be a newtype
22:32:28 <tswett> Oh, right.
22:33:15 <oerjan> tswett: me and elliott discussed a haskell game based on such a scheme previously
22:34:02 <oerjan> two Value "warriors", each of which has to return True when passed itself and attempt to return False when passed the other
22:34:36 <oerjan> and then maybe a hill like for bfjoust
22:35:23 <tswett> warrior x = x warrior -- this will work excellently against a perfect enemy
22:35:53 <oerjan> tswett: um no, the requirement to halt and return True when passed yourself is absolute
22:36:10 <oerjan> automatic disqualification if not
22:37:02 <oerjan> yours would infloop then
22:38:25 <oerjan> then returning False for the other warrior wins unless it does the same
22:38:38 <oerjan> *the same for you
22:38:55 <tswett> You can't prove it doesn't return True. :P
22:39:01 <tswett> (You can prove that easily, of course.)

22:41:36 <ais523> is it even possible to pass a function itself in Haskell? I thought that didn't type
22:41:51 <oerjan> ais523: you need a newtype wrapper, is all
22:42:18 <oerjan> see the above definition of Value
22:42:49 <oerjan> (with s/data/newtype/, data is unnecessary)
22:43:45 <oerjan> the direct prohibition is only to prevent a lot of spurious errors from accidentally typing like missing a function argument and the like
22:48:30 <oerjan> !haskell newtype Fix a = Fix {unFix :: Fix a -> a}; fix f = (\x -> f (unFix x x)) $ Fix (\x -> f (unFix x x)); main = print . take 50 $ fix (1:)

22:48:43 <oerjan> ais523: ^
22:50:23 <ais523> wow
22:50:59 <ais523> coppro: can you get BBC World News where you are (I know it's a TV channel in Canada)? it's probably covering the elections today (including the AV referendum) right now
22:51:08 <ais523> polls closed a couple of hours ago, the votes are being counted at the moment (by hand)
22:51:18 <ais523> and I'm watching it too, but it's a different channel in the UK
22:52:04 <tswett> Ooh, the AV referendum.
22:52:19 <pikhq> Isn't the more traditional definition of fix: fix f = x where x = f x?
22:52:22 <ais523> today is the day; I voted Yes, as did most of my family, one of them by mistake
22:52:24 <cheater15> ais
22:52:32 <cheater15> are you planning to go to bletchley park this year
22:52:34 <pikhq> !haskell fix f = x where x = fx; main = print . take 50 $ fix (1:)
22:52:38 <pikhq> Erm.
22:52:41 <pikhq> !haskell fix f = x where x = f x; main = print . take 50 $ fix (1:)
22:52:46 <tswett> I read the "No on AV" campaign. It was inconsistent and didn't support most of its points.
22:52:57 <ais523> the question was really misleading; it was "The current form of voting in the UK is First Past the Post. Should we vote using the Alternative Vote system instead?" or something like that
22:53:05 <ais523> and quite a lot of people misread it as Yes = FPTP
22:53:06 <pikhq> That'd be a "no, I am not correct in thinking that".
22:53:13 <ais523> I'm not entirely sure what effect that'll have on the voting
22:53:15 <ais523> cheater15: no
22:53:39 <cheater15> ais523, fizzie said there was a plan to do that
22:53:49 <cheater15> ais523, does that change your mind in any way?
22:53:55 * pikhq wishes it were a better voting system that were up on the ballot.
22:54:03 <ais523> are there a bunch of esolangers going there?
22:54:12 <cheater15> yes
22:54:17 <ais523> hmm, possibly then
22:54:22 <ais523> but still probably not
22:54:23 <pikhq> Not that it affects me at all, *but* instant runoff has issues.
22:54:33 <pikhq> Still, fucktons better than FPTP.
22:55:14 <ais523> it does have issues, but they're mostly quite technical and hard to describe
22:55:31 <ais523> I went and talked to the democracy people at the guild incessantly about what was wrong with it, but it was quite hard to phrase
22:55:34 <pikhq> As I said, fucktons better than FPTP.
22:55:40 <ais523> (more out of curiosity than anything, I didn't actually want to change it)
22:58:16 <oerjan> pikhq: yes, but the point of the Fix trick above is to write fix without using literal recursion, by using newtype to bypass the cyclic type prohibition
22:59:04 <pikhq> oerjan: Mmm.
23:00:40 <cheater15> ais523, what city do you live in?
23:01:21 <ais523> Birmingham UK
23:01:27 <ais523> I think that's pretty large public knowledge by now
23:01:44 <ais523> what with my email address showing I go to (in fact, work at) Birmingham University, and several other clues
23:05:11 <oerjan> pikhq: also your code is failing because your where block doesn't end before the main
23:06:35 <coppro> ais523: is it on som BBC station? they might be webcasting
23:06:54 <ais523> BBC 2 in the UK, I think
23:07:02 <ais523> they do webcast, but geographically filter
23:07:14 <coppro> oh, blarg
23:07:14 <ais523> so you'd need to go through a proxy in the UK
23:07:38 <coppro> meh, I don't care enough
23:07:57 <ais523> I know I watched the last election on BBC World News, as I was in Canada at the time
23:08:17 <pikhq> oerjan: Aaaah.
23:08:27 <coppro> ais523: An election is far more significant
23:08:32 <coppro> moreover, I'm in California and without a TV
23:08:44 <ais523> coppro: there's an election at the same time
23:08:47 <ais523> so they're being covered together
23:08:51 <coppro> oh
23:08:59 <ais523> it's a council election, though, not general election
23:09:22 <ais523> but people are still very interested because they want to see just how badly the Lib Dems will do
23:09:51 <ais523> I'd have voted for them if they had any chance, I think, but the voting system's still FPTP and so only votes for Labour and the Conservatives matter in my ward at the moment
23:10:12 <pikhq> ais523: Your university is on your Wikipedia page.
23:10:12 <ais523> there are also full elections in Scotland, Wales, and I think also Northern Ireland
23:10:19 <pikhq> :)
23:10:23 <ais523> I have a Wikipedia page again?
23:10:31 <ais523> I thought it was merged into the page about the turing machine
23:10:43 <pikhq> Yeah, but https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Alex_Smith_%28The_Simplest_Universal_Computer_Proof_contest_winner%29 redirects to it.
23:10:53 <ais523> ah, redirect
23:11:01 <ais523> that is an absurd dab bracket, by the way
23:11:10 <pikhq> Yup.
23:13:01 <tswett> ais523: do something else notable so that you can have a shorter one.
23:13:37 <pikhq> Preferably something simple.
23:13:49 <pikhq> Say, prove P≠NP. :P
23:14:01 <tswett> "Sir Alex Smith was born a Scottish industrial scientist and educator." Um...
23:14:03 <pikhq> "P and NP are clearly different strings. Ergo, P≠NP. QED"
23:14:11 <tswett> I didn't know those positions were born into in Scotland.
23:14:36 <pikhq> tswett: Everything's done differently there.
23:14:43 <pikhq> And English is a foreign language.
23:15:36 <oerjan> tswett: of course. how did you otherwise think the scots managed to start the industrial revolution?
23:15:46 <tswett> Ooh, I see.

23:27:14 <tswett> Hi Sgeo.
23:27:22 <Sgeo> Hi
23:49:21 <ais523> coppro: it seems that the AV referendum votes will be counted tomorrow
23:49:53 <ais523> and here's the official results website of the people responsible for counting it: http://ukreferendumresults.aboutmyvote.co.uk/en/default.aspx
23:51:30 <ais523> also, ooh, I just found the official website that contains all UK law
23:51:34 <ais523> so I can read up on the relevant laws
23:51:39 <ais523> I was wondering if there was one of those around
23:52:31 -!- azaq23 has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
23:54:57 <pikhq> It definitely doesn't contain all UK law.
23:55:09 <ais523> ah, OK
23:55:21 <ais523> well, all the legislation that they could find, anyway
23:55:31 <pikhq> There are a number of Acts of Parliament which are lost forever.
23:58:39 <ais523> so far, we seem to be getting big swings Lib Dem -> SNP in Scotland, with Labour's share staying much the same; as a result, the SNP are gaining quite heavily on Labour
23:59:25 <oerjan> Lex Caccii Viginti Duo
23:59:50 <ais523> ooh, ouch; if AV passes, then the rules for it are edited into law immediately but don't actually take effect until the next general election
23:59:57 <ais523> and in between, people just have to remember they don't apply
