00:00:00 <CakeProphet> well if I only took the 1-gram set I could generate 2-grams and 3-grams from those.
00:00:06 <fizzie> (total-counts file of unigrams for "English")
00:00:08 <CakeProphet> or just use the 3-gram set
00:00:18 -!- hagb4rd has joined.
00:00:19 <elliott> fizzie: There's also that "one million" dataset.
00:00:21 <elliott> <CakeProphet> well if I only took the 1-gram set I could generate 2-grams and 3-grams from those.
00:00:24 <elliott> Uhh, I don't think so.
00:00:45 <fizzie> If you do letter bi/trigrams, yes, you can generate them from word-unigrams, when modeling a single word.
00:00:50 <elliott> Oh, well, right.
00:00:59 <fizzie> The word-trigram set is pretty useless in that case.
00:01:01 <elliott> /usr/share/dict/words would do just as well though, surely.
00:01:35 <CakeProphet> NOPE NEEDS MOAR DATA.
00:01:54 <fizzie> elliott: The web dataset was built over 1 trillion "words" (it's a bit messy) of random Internet pages, I believe.
00:02:02 <elliott> More obscure and therefore probably less familiar-looking data?
00:02:16 <CakeProphet> well the wlanguage-insane would be enough
00:02:27 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
00:02:46 <CakeProphet> elliott: I'm not necessarily looking for familiar-looking acronyms.
00:02:48 <fizzie> http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/Catalog/CatalogEntry.jsp?catalogId=LDC2006T13
00:02:55 <fizzie> $150 for non-members.
00:03:07 <fizzie> But you'll get the shiny DVDs. :p
00:03:22 <elliott> fizzie: Is that of the web corpus?
00:03:24 <elliott> Worpus.
00:03:26 <elliott> Hunt the Worpus.
00:03:29 <elliott> Indeed it is.
00:03:32 <fizzie> Yes.
00:03:41 <elliott> What kind of DVD is it?
00:03:44 <elliott> i.e. capacity.
00:03:49 <CakeProphet> for mad overkill I could interpolate the non-duplicate occurences of words in both the insane language dictionaries and google data.
00:04:26 <elliott> fizzie: Also what are the chances of you putting them up on a torrent tracker. :p
00:04:36 <fizzie> Very zero. :p
00:04:40 <fizzie> It has about 13.5 million unique "words" of "English".
00:04:56 <elliott> <elliott> What kind of DVD is it?
00:04:56 <elliott> <elliott> i.e. capacity.
00:05:09 <elliott> fizzie: Also it doesn't really matter how real the words are with chains that long. :p
00:05:42 <elliott> File sizes: approx. 24 GB compressed (gzip'ed) text files
00:05:42 <elliott> Ah.
00:05:42 <fizzie> 4.4G says du -h.
00:05:57 <fizzie> (For DVD1.)
00:05:57 <CakeProphet> the google data would also allow my acronym generator to take year filters.
00:06:13 <CakeProphet> you know, if you're into that thing.
00:06:13 <elliott> fizzie: I can't help but think that any Markov algorithm running on the data would be... how do I put it... slow.
00:06:21 <fizzie> Yes, the book data is fancy that way.
00:06:45 <CakeProphet> elliott: nah I'm using Perl it'll be fine.
00:07:04 <fizzie> elliott: Dumped into PostgreSQL, I think it took a second or three per query (i.e. to sample one new word).
00:07:10 <elliott> fizzie: (It'd be nice to do the MegaHAL-style backwards-from-query and forwards-from-query stuff so you can answer questions with THE INTERNET on IRC.)
00:07:15 <elliott> Well PostgreSQL is not very optimised.
00:07:17 <CakeProphet> basically my "markov" chain will be hash tables.
00:07:29 <elliott> Can't you use one of those fancy short-English-text-optimised compression things?
00:07:31 <elliott> Bloom filters??
00:07:31 <elliott> Help.
00:08:19 <elliott> fizzie: help.
00:08:24 <fizzie> You can arrange them into a reversed-context tree, that makes the sampling fast. It's what fungot does.
00:08:24 <fungot> fizzie: only one place can sit one rnd first
00:08:57 <elliott> fizzie: Like, a hash table of most recent word to (a hash table of second-most recent word to ...)?
00:09:04 <elliott> That's just... a trie.
00:09:11 <CakeProphet> so the acronym generating data structure will basically be Ngram -> (Char -> Frequency)
00:09:16 <CakeProphet> where -> is a hash table.
00:09:28 <elliott> CakeProphet: Yes, that's going to be so awfully "efficient" with gigabytes of data.
00:10:06 <elliott> fizzie: Oh, dear, that 24 GB figure is gzipped.
00:10:15 <elliott> fizzie: That means it's probably ten terabytes unzipped.
00:10:15 <fizzie> Basically all unigrams to root node, all bigrams starting with "foo" to /foo, all trigrams starting with "bar foo" to /foo/bar; then you can just walk backwards in your current context + the tree, and when reaching a leaf use that node's wordlist to generate the next word (or backoff).
00:10:46 <fizzie> I think it was a bit less than a terabyte in Postgres, IIRC.
00:11:04 <elliott> fizzie: But I don't have a disk that big. :(
00:11:19 <CakeProphet> elliott: what are you going to use this data for?
00:11:20 <elliott> fizzie: I suppose I could plug in an external drive, but that'd be laughably slow.
00:11:29 <elliott> CakeProphet: An IRC bot to answer questions and babble, duh.
00:11:46 <monqy> would it be good
00:11:58 <elliott> monqy: Well, I mean, I'd like it to be good.
00:12:31 <fizzie> The book dataset could be more reasonable, not to mention more book-learned. Plus, as mentioned, you could tell it to sound like someone who lived e.g. in the 1920s.
00:12:46 <fizzie> Assuming they have enough books from each period, anyway.
00:12:57 <elliott> fizzie: Yeeeees, but that's a much less interesting engineering challenge.
00:13:15 <elliott> fizzie: I don't suppose the books n-gram data includes punctuation.
00:15:17 <fizzie> Haven't looked. The web-data does.
00:16:26 <fizzie> "argle, bargle" seems to have been turned into three tokens <argle> <,> <bargle> for the web.
00:16:33 -!- sebbu2 has joined.
00:16:44 <fizzie> They've probably also filtered it somewhat.
00:17:00 <elliott> Right.
00:17:10 <elliott> It'd be nice to get open and close quotes separately. :p
00:17:15 <elliott> Or at least space-quote differentiated from quote-space.
00:18:25 <fizzie> I have some sort of a regex-driven guesswork for that in fungot's preprocessing script, generates different tokens (POQUOT and PCQUOT or something) for them.
00:18:25 <fungot> fizzie: it in raffle city got mac meh? ya i'm also came to just saw ur msg only lol... after is everything wen v miss something ". real value. create a contact on indyarocks.com
00:18:29 <CakeProphet> if the data contained all punctuation then a close quote would be preceded by [,.!?]
00:18:41 <elliott> fizzie: How does it do the guesstimationeration?
00:18:44 <elliott> Or is that from raw data?
00:18:54 <fizzie> It's from raw data, yes.
00:19:21 <fizzie> It can't preprocess-fake an already ngrammized data like the Goggel stuff.

00:21:20 <CakeProphet> halp what's fastest way to download all of the 1-gram data for every language on this page
00:21:36 <Patashu> wget?
00:22:14 <CakeProphet> does it have some kind of URL regex option?
00:24:01 <CakeProphet> searching for the term regex in its man page yielded nothing.
00:24:43 <elliott> Regexps: The only way to do anything.
00:24:43 <CakeProphet> oh nevermind I found it.
00:24:46 <Patashu> I don't think it's smart enough to know what urls are valid
00:24:46 <Patashu> oh?
00:24:56 <elliott> <fizzie> It can't preprocess-fake an already ngrammized data like the Goggel stuff.
00:24:57 <elliott> fizzie: Right. :(
00:25:19 <CakeProphet> Regexps: probably the best way to filter only the URLs I want in this case
00:25:45 <CakeProphet> but it's more like sh wildcard stuff and not regex.
00:25:51 <CakeProphet> should work fine
00:27:52 <CakeProphet> any idea what "english 1 million" is?
00:29:22 -!- evincar has joined.
00:31:01 <fizzie> Probably either "English with just 1 million most common words", or "English from 1 million words of text"; former sounds more likely.

00:31:24 <elliott> fizzie: But, um, BLOOM FILTERS

00:33:45 <fizzie> I'm not immediately clear on how probabilistic set-membership-testing would help all that much.
00:33:52 <pikhq> TIL that Israeli DST is neither deterministic nor algorithmic.
00:34:04 <monqy> evincar: the lines following http://codu.org/logs/log/_esoteric/2011-08-25#103037Patashu for my response to what you were saying about whatever last night
00:34:58 <fizzie> Now the real sleep. (I just took a quick shower there, that's why still awake.)
00:35:10 <pikhq> DST in Israel is determined by whatever their legislature declares that year.
00:35:27 <monqy> evincar: in short, using good judgment when picking names is better than just sticking to well-established notation/whatever
00:35:31 <pikhq> Which means that there must always be at least one tzdata update a year.
00:35:41 <evincar> monqy: I agree.
00:36:02 <evincar> Good judgement includes genre awareness, that's all.
00:37:03 <monqy> consistency, clarity, and brevity are good too
00:37:03 <CakeProphet> weee wget
00:37:51 <evincar> CakeProphet: What have you wgotten?
00:39:51 <monqy> is this still about acronyms or have you moved onto more grand (general term for whatever you're doing)s
00:39:58 <monqy> things

00:41:32 <CakeProphet> evincar: I'm still working on the acronym generator.
00:41:38 <CakeProphet> elliott has some kind of bot in mind.
00:42:11 <evincar> Bluh. English orthography isn't exactly ideal for this sort of thing.
00:42:20 <monqy> english orthography is awful
00:42:41 <evincar> But as long as we all agree on it, it serves.
00:42:52 <evincar> (Well, apart from color/colour etc.)
00:42:53 <CakeProphet> !perl %x = (); $x{a}++; print %x
00:42:55 <EgoBot> a1
00:42:59 <monqy> im disagree 100%
00:43:07 <monqy> looka t me go
00:44:29 <CakeProphet> I wonder if I should base my frequency data on the page/volume count
00:44:49 <evincar> My language continues to evolve.
00:45:09 <evincar> I decided it would be nice to have a non-TC language for making families of stack combinators.
00:45:18 <elliott> ok
00:46:08 <Patashu> stack combinators are like rot, dup etc?
00:46:20 <evincar> Yep.
00:46:34 <CakeProphet> lol wgerman-medical
00:46:57 * CakeProphet downloads everything
00:46:58 <evincar> But rather than specifying dup1, dup2, dup3, you can just specify dupn.
00:47:14 <evincar> I don't like arbitrary implementation-defined limits on things.
00:47:26 <elliott> "if you use more than dup2 ever you're doing something very wrong" --every designer of a stack language ever
00:47:28 <elliott> (experts)
00:47:31 <evincar> True.
00:47:38 <elliott> "similarly with almost all other non-trivial stack manipulation combinators" --them
00:47:46 <evincar> Most stack shuffling operations are for the benefit of beginners.
00:47:52 <elliott> "and since you can compose them all from a set of primitive ones why do you need a sublanguage for the rare cases" --me
00:48:17 <evincar> I dunno, it feels cleaner.
00:48:30 <evincar> It's no worse than having a type system.
00:51:20 <CakeProphet> the nice thing is that I'llonly have to generate the frequency tables once by using Data::Dumper to generate a hardcoded hash.
00:51:39 <evincar> Say what you will about Perl. It gets stuff done.
00:51:39 <CakeProphet> it would be silly to traverse all of the data every invocation.
00:52:11 <CakeProphet> the same can be said of most languages.
00:52:22 <CakeProphet> except C++
00:53:18 <pikhq> CakeProphet: ^5
00:53:31 <evincar> I maintain that every language is good for some things.
00:53:42 <pikhq> C++'s is torture.
00:53:57 <CakeProphet> pikhq: did you just exponentiate what I said by 5 or something?
00:54:02 <CakeProphet> I'm confused by this notation.
00:54:04 <evincar> C++ is good for...confusing beginners, being warty, and having a cocktease functional language embedded in the most godawful metaprogramming facility known to man.
00:54:05 <pikhq> No, that's "high five".
00:54:10 <CakeProphet> oh...
00:54:11 <CakeProphet> yes.
00:55:15 <evincar> Then again, if you treat it as C+const+RAII+templates, it's tolerably good.
00:55:15 * CakeProphet is having to use C++ in his data structures class
00:55:21 <CakeProphet> which will mean I will be getting slightly more familiar with it.
00:55:36 <evincar> At the very least you don't have to resort to macros or untyped pointers to make type-agnostic data structures.

00:56:40 <monqy> why are we talking about c++
00:56:50 <evincar> Because I feel like complaining.

01:55:36 <CakeProphet> dick chainy
01:56:19 <elliott> 00:10:15: <fizzie> Basically all unigrams to root node, all bigrams starting with "foo" to /foo, all trigrams starting with "bar foo" to /foo/bar; then you can just walk backwards in your current context + the tree, and when reaching a leaf use that node's wordlist to generate the next word (or backoff).
01:56:29 <elliott> time to figure out how this differs from the obvious way of doing it trie-wise
01:57:31 <monqy> twice I made markov bots. both dead now,. rest peacefully.
01:57:47 <elliott> monqy: yes but were YOURS designed to work on almost a terabyte of raw data in realtime
01:57:48 <elliott> I THINK NOT
01:58:04 <elliott> i guess i'll have to run it from home lol because no host will give me a terabyte
01:58:13 <monqy> I want to make another bot but not markov
01:58:23 <monqy> because markov is not cool enough
01:58:27 <elliott> botte will be good... but markov more important
01:58:34 <elliott> monqy: yes but mine will answer questions too......
01:58:38 <monqy> oh....
01:58:52 <CakeProphet> elliott: perhaps you should try to get a freelance project to make money to pay for awesome hosting.
01:58:54 <elliott> "what is X?" --> start with "X is", do one markov chain forward from that and one backwards, until complete sentence made
01:59:04 <monqy> some time i want to try scfg.............
01:59:21 <elliott> CakeProphet: well let's see now.
01:59:27 <monqy> instead of markov.....
01:59:30 <monqy> scfg is cool right.....
01:59:37 <CakeProphet> I considered using it. with regex of course to implement the transition rules.
01:59:37 <elliott> monqy: maybe
01:59:41 <CakeProphet> because there is no better way.
01:59:42 <elliott> TERABYTE
02:00:10 <elliott> ok so
02:00:21 <elliott> the only vps providers i can find offering anywher enear a terabyte of storage
02:00:35 <elliott> slicehost - 620GB gigs of storage, fiteen gigs of ram, two point five terabytes monthly bandwidth
02:00:37 <elliott> eight hundred dollars a month
02:00:42 <monqy> 8)
02:00:43 <elliott> rackspace - cba to work it out it's per-hour
02:00:56 <elliott> i guess a dedicated server
02:00:58 <elliott> would be cheaper in that case
02:01:02 <elliott> but w/e im not paying a hundred pounds a month to run a bot
02:01:29 <CakeProphet> buy a server. host it yourself. profit.
02:01:35 <elliott> host it myself where
02:01:36 <monqy> no
02:01:36 <monqy> die
02:01:38 <elliott> from my home connetion?
02:01:40 <elliott> because thats called
02:01:42 <elliott> WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO
02:01:47 <monqy> i always just run bots from home..
02:01:48 <elliott> except i can just reuse an existing machine
02:01:49 <CakeProphet> COOL DO THAT.
02:01:53 <CakeProphet> PROBLEM SOLVED.
02:01:57 <elliott> NICE YELLING
02:02:01 <monqy> hi
02:02:03 <CakeProphet> FUUUUCK
02:02:32 <CakeProphet> @let cruiseControl = map toUpper
02:02:32 <lambdabot> Defined.
02:02:39 <zzo38> I invented sokoban compression. It is like RLE, but it first encodes the walls/spaces (like the Generic Font format, it switches after every number), and then the targets skipping the walls, and then it encodes the number of positions between crates, skipping positions where there are walls or where a crate can never be moved from if it is placed there, and stopping when the number of crates is equal to the number of targets. Numbers are stored
02:04:13 <CakeProphet> you should make a patent.
02:04:19 <CakeProphet> and then when someone else invents you can get mad $$$$$
02:04:20 <zzo38> No.
02:04:32 <zzo38> I want it freely usable.
02:05:17 <CakeProphet> I am one english 1-gram file number 7...
02:05:23 <elliott> monqy: help i need a really space-efficient thing that's also really efficient to seek about while keeping it all on-disk
02:05:24 <CakeProphet> 317K/s
02:05:32 <zzo38> In addition, it is automatically assumed there are walls on the edges; you do not need to encode the edges.
02:06:07 <monqy> elliott: i am bad at knowing how to solve this probleme
02:06:11 <CakeProphet> hey wait I have money now why do I not own an external hard drive.
02:07:36 <CakeProphet> 1.5 TB HD: $57 external HD case: $11
02:08:08 <zzo38> I saw a program using Huffman coding to code a Sokoban game on Texas Instruments calculators, but I invented mine independently and it usually compresses better (since it avoids redundancy).
02:08:40 -!- augur has joined.
02:08:43 <Patashu> I can't imagine a huge need to compress sokoban levels, unless you've made some mega sokoban that'll take a year to beat
02:08:48 <zzo38> In a few cases, rotating or flipping the level will make it compress better.
02:09:03 <elliott> <CakeProphet> 1.5 TB HD: $57 external HD case: $11
02:09:03 <elliott> or
02:09:06 <elliott> just buy
02:09:07 <elliott> an external hd
02:09:13 <elliott> and get it for cheaper than the combination
02:09:59 <CakeProphet> cheapest I've found is $70
02:10:10 <zzo38> Patashu: Yes, that is a purpose. Although mostly I did just to see if I can. Another purpose is a game with many levels but for systems with small ROM, but large enough to write the decompression program; the improvement improves as more levels are added in this case.
02:10:37 <Patashu> now I'm curious as to whether there there are any notable sokoban variants
02:11:29 <CakeProphet> elliott: yes it makes absolutely no sense but buying the case and HD seperately is cheaper.
02:11:34 <zzo38> There are some. There are many different ways to decide variants. Including geomerty, such as hex grid sokoban, or 3D sokoban; sokoban with new pieces such as blocks that move different number of spaces when pushed; etc
02:11:59 <monqy> some assembley required: save $$$$$
02:12:02 <Patashu> yeah, I can imagine all the ways to vary it, but what results in a Good Game
02:12:04 * Patashu google google
02:13:23 <zzo38> Or, such thing as Snaky Sokoban (one of my ideas, too), where there is tail of your pieces and therefore you cannot go backwards. Another thing is you have multiple pieces all of which move in the same direction to push blocks, so you have to be more careful. Another idea is different color of crates which must match colors of targets
02:14:27 <elliott> monqy: oh and i need to store it in reverse format too, oops
02:14:33 <elliott> i guess iw ill have to... soncult fizzie on that
02:15:03 <CakeProphet> order placed. Now I just need to figure out what to do with 1.5 TBs
02:16:01 <zzo38> Do you have any other ideas about sokoban game?
02:16:36 <monqy> reverse format what is that
02:16:42 <zzo38> I also once played a game that is sokoban except they added keys and doors as well.
02:17:21 <Patashu> How about receptors being level-changing triggers? When a crate is on them, they alter one or more tiles. When a crate is not on them, the alteration might revert.
02:17:27 <Patashu> It'd be like those dickish block puzzles in La Mulana
02:17:44 <Patashu> And it combines trivially with any other sokoban modification
02:17:54 <Patashu> Well, not trivially
02:18:02 <Patashu> But with obvious usage
02:24:12 <elliott> Hmm...
02:24:33 <elliott> I think I have a decent idea of how to do the reverse-way around too without massive duplication
02:24:35 <elliott> Well, two ways
02:24:40 <elliott> I'm not sure if they are any good though
02:40:26 <CakeProphet> being a consumer sure is fun.
02:41:32 <CakeProphet> I get to work, buy things, consume them, and die!!
02:43:57 <CakeProphet> uh oh, I didn't check to see if my external is bootable.
02:44:00 <CakeProphet> oh well.
02:44:39 <Sgeo> "Also, I wasnt talking about lists (you cant express Lisp-like lists in OCaml because they cant be statically typed)"
02:44:45 <elliott> doesn't really matter
02:44:48 <elliott> is it usb
02:44:51 <elliott> because running os off usb = FAST
02:44:52 <elliott> :P
02:45:05 <Sgeo> What? I guess Lisp-like lists can't be statically typed in O'Caml?
02:45:14 <Sgeo> Because Haskell handles them just fine
02:45:17 <Patashu> Chip's Challenge is a superset of sokoban, I just realized
02:45:27 <Sgeo> http://schani.wordpress.com/2007/07/23/why-ocaml-is-not-my-favorite-programming-language/#comment-6957
02:45:31 <CakeProphet> elliott: fast enough. I used to have an Ubuntu flash drive that suited its purpose well.
02:46:03 <Patashu> block receptor -> brown button, and make a row of beartraps with the exit at the end

02:50:06 <elliott> meta-tracker
02:55:48 <CakeProphet> I guess
02:55:57 <CakeProphet> I should make a bot?
02:56:16 <monqy> would it be a good bot
02:56:21 <CakeProphet> well, no need. I can do everything via an egobot command actually.
02:57:29 <monqy> ok
02:59:31 <CakeProphet> but yes eventually I will probably make an irc bot.
03:00:10 <monqy> a good bot? a few times I've made bot. all dead. rest peacefully.
03:00:23 <CakeProphet> dunno. we'll see.
03:00:57 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
03:00:59 <CakeProphet> it would serve a variety of purposes. One in particular is being able to facillitate pen and paper RPGs
03:01:04 <CakeProphet> over IRC.
03:01:23 <CakeProphet> another would be a playground of programs, similar to egobot I suppose.
03:03:26 <CakeProphet> I might write it on top of lambdabot I'd like to have all of lambdabots commands.
03:05:07 <CakeProphet> or I could write in Perl, and then implement lambdabot's commands by PMing lambdabot and relaying the answer. :P

03:10:13 <CakeProphet> so I /could/ allow user-defined commands that execute when they match an arbitrary regex
03:10:16 <CakeProphet> the question is
03:10:23 <CakeProphet> do I really want that to be possible?
03:10:55 <CakeProphet> probably not, unless I restricted them somehow.

04:02:13 <CakeProphet> (.) o m = let ?this = o in m
04:02:30 <CakeProphet> would that work?
04:03:32 <CakeProphet> I guess .$ would allow you to not hide composition
04:03:36 <elliott> :t \o m -> let ?this = o in m
04:03:37 <lambdabot> forall t t1. t1 -> t -> t
04:03:41 <elliott> no.
04:03:55 <elliott> :t \o (m :: forall x. (?this :: x) -> r) -> let ?this = o in m
04:03:55 <lambdabot> Predicate used as a type: ?this :: x
04:03:55 <lambdabot> In the type `forall x. (?this :: x) -> r'
04:03:55 <lambdabot> In a pattern type signature: forall x. (?this :: x) -> r
04:03:58 <zzo38> Do you know the function of double quoted strings in WEB? Do you know if it is possible to make Haskell to have that function, too?
04:04:01 <elliott> :t \o (m :: forall x. (?this :: x) => r) -> let ?this = o in m
04:04:02 <lambdabot> A pattern type signature cannot bind scoped type variables `r'
04:04:02 <lambdabot> unless the pattern has a rigid type context
04:04:02 <lambdabot> In the pattern: m :: forall x. (?this :: x) => r
04:04:21 <elliott> :t (\o m -> let ?this = o in m) :: x -> ((?this :: x) => r) -> r
04:04:22 <lambdabot> forall x r. x -> ((?this::x) => r) -> r

04:26:10 <CakeProphet> yep
04:27:16 <CakeProphet> zzo38: interested in Shadowrun much?
04:27:20 <CakeProphet> I've been looking for a group.
04:27:29 <zzo38> CakeProphet: I don't know much about it.
04:27:38 <zzo38> You can explain more details if you want to.
04:27:39 <CakeProphet> me neither. :P I've only read the 5th edition book a few times.
04:27:51 <CakeProphet> it's uh... fantasy / cyberpunk basically.
04:27:56 <CakeProphet> I could link you to a PDF.
04:30:21 <zzo38> Did you read the recording of my game? (I am not requiring payment for you to read it)
04:30:45 <CakeProphet> I wasn't aware I had access to it.
04:31:57 <zzo38> http://zzo38computer.cjb.net/dnd/recording/level20.tex (In the same directory are "dungeonsrecording.tex" which is the macros, and "level20.dvi" which is the printout file)
04:33:56 <zzo38> You can find the \session heading which specifies the date that this game is played, while \chaptertitle is used for chapters organized according to story format instead.
04:34:13 <zzo38> Currently it has eight footnotes.
04:35:05 <zzo38> Do you like this? Do you like ___________?
04:37:06 <CakeProphet> not really sure how to view this stuff.
04:37:40 <zzo38> The .tex is just a text file, can be viewed in any program. DVI file is viewable in any DVI viewer program or printer.
04:38:19 <CakeProphet> said incorrect format when I tried to view the dvi
04:39:07 <CakeProphet> also don't know much about DND so the stats don't mean much to me.
04:39:09 <zzo38> Then view the .tex file
04:39:31 <CakeProphet> Also, the Doppelganger
04:39:56 <zzo38> It has the entire story text too, you do not need to know much about D&D to read that. The footnotes and character data is more having to do with the game to make it difficult to understand if you do not understand D&D, but the story text can be read by anyone (if you can read English story texts)

04:44:02 <zzo38> Are you sure? Maybe you would notice mistakes having to do with story text. I am not very good at that kind of writing stuff. Of course, you can also learn a few things about D&D game from reading this, too.
04:44:30 * CakeProphet is fucking Kurt Vonnegut himself and master of all writtens.
04:45:01 <CakeProphet> well it kind of switches from third person to first person randomly

04:47:19 <CakeProphet> the whole thing is kind of oddly worded but technically not incorrect I suppose.

04:47:29 -!- pikhq has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
04:47:38 <zzo38> OK, I will take note of that in case I can correct that or someone can correct it. I will fix the "tracking device". OK I corrected that sentence now.

04:49:15 <CakeProphet> though I'm not really sure if that's incorrect, it just sounds strange to me.
04:49:33 <zzo38> OK, I fixed that too.
04:50:21 <CakeProphet> I don't think there's any need for me to make suggestions honestly. It's not like you're writing a novel or anything.
04:50:30 <zzo38> Do you like this story? Is it interesting story that you like to read this kind of stuff? (Note: the \note{...} indicates footnotes. They are not part of the story text)
04:50:32 <CakeProphet> just recording what happened.
04:50:58 <CakeProphet> you should have used a \note{} to explain
04:51:03 <CakeProphet> for great humor.
04:51:44 <zzo38> CakeProphet: Well, I am recording what happened as well as trying to make it like writing a novel. But not for selling; just for reading by computer. You can print it in many modes to specify detail level; detail level 1 is mostly like a novel, while detail level 6 is everything.
04:52:09 <zzo38> CakeProphet: Use a \note{} to explain what, specifically do you mean?
04:52:35 <CakeProphet> \note{the \note{} indicates footnotes. they are not part of the story text}
04:53:18 <zzo38> O, like that. But the printout does not actually say \note
04:53:42 <CakeProphet> oh yeah I know I just meant in your sentence it would have been funny.
04:53:49 <CakeProphet> oh let me find something else...
04:54:17 <zzo38> O, you mean in my sentence on this IRC. Yes, in that case I agree with you it is funny way to do it I like it like that
04:54:25 <CakeProphet> while you're letting me correct you in stuff...
04:54:29 <CakeProphet> lemme find it.
04:56:09 <CakeProphet> 16:44:08: <zzo38> I think too many paragraphs begin with "Also"

05:18:09 <monqy> not sure what i would do with it
05:18:27 <evincar> I don't do anything with mine.
05:18:34 <evincar> Largely because I haven't made a video in a while.
05:18:40 <CakeProphet> I talk about all of my nerd projects to all of my non-nerd friends who basically don't pay attention.
05:18:43 <CakeProphet> it's fun.
05:18:45 <evincar> So I haven't told any of my subscribers to add me.
05:19:15 <monqy> the only friends I have it'd be pretty useless to google+
05:19:20 <evincar> CakeProphet: That's what my blog is for.
05:19:24 <monqy> or something like that
05:19:31 <evincar> Except I acknowledge that no one listens.
05:21:47 <CakeProphet> all I have is a livejournal, where I post pictures of me cutting myself.
05:21:58 <monqy> I don;t livejournal
05:22:11 <CakeProphet> I also write poems. -_;;

05:25:05 <monqy> cake "easily amused" prophet
05:26:57 <CakeProphet> mon "help(c)" qy
05:28:34 <evincar> Hmm.
05:28:42 <evincar> Idea.
05:29:13 <evincar> Unix-style programs have one port for input and two ports for output, but all of these ports are one-dimensional.
05:29:36 <evincar> We should have 2D ports as well, for images and such.
05:29:47 <evincar> Just a thought.
05:29:53 <pikhq_> Won't work well with C.
05:29:57 <evincar> It'd be more useful in a graphical shell.
05:30:03 <evincar> Yeah, C = Unix.
05:30:06 <evincar> :(
05:30:06 <pikhq_> Or, really, any other bits of the stack.
05:30:28 <pikhq_> Too moronic to allow for any data structures other than char*.
05:30:59 <evincar> Meh. You *can* serialise everything.
05:31:08 <evincar> Obviously that's been working all along.
05:31:47 <evincar> Maybe I'll just make programs that open up file descriptors 3-13 and output 10 bytes to each if I want to write a 10x10 image. :P
05:31:50 <pikhq_> It's also utterly moronic.
05:32:10 <pikhq_> Yes, it technically works, but so does assembly.
05:32:36 <evincar> Yeah, so some higher-level language integration with the shell would be nice.
05:33:01 <CakeProphet> Haskshell
05:33:05 <evincar> If there were a consumer-quality Lisp-based OS, I'd go for it.
05:33:33 <evincar> Or any number of other things. Factor would be fine, or even something like Smalltalk.
05:33:57 <evincar> Guess I should team up with that guy who wanted to write a "Kay OOP" system.
05:34:07 <pikhq_> I hear Symbolics offered those. In the 80s.
05:34:27 <evincar> What you're saying is true.
05:34:36 <evincar> But I don't know if you're toying with me.
05:34:51 <pikhq_> No, being quite honest and depressed.
05:35:59 <evincar> What's got your gills down and brown, toothflake?
05:36:53 <pikhq_> EVERYTHING SUCKS
05:37:00 <pikhq_> Not just computers, EVERYTHING!
05:37:15 <evincar> Most people like things that suck.
05:37:26 <pikhq_> Most people suck.
05:37:40 <evincar> More or less.
05:39:01 <evincar> So I'm re-doing my web site.
05:39:17 <evincar> Going to get started on that programming language genome project.
05:39:21 <pikhq_> Remember, <head> and <body> make baby IESVS cry!
05:39:23 <evincar> I know there was some genuine interest here.
05:39:34 <Sgeo> IESVS?
05:39:58 <evincar> Sgeo: Jesus.
05:40:02 <pikhq_> I don't believe in miniscule letters, U, and J in Latin.
05:40:18 <evincar> pikhq_: Nor spaces. But maybe interpuncts.
05:40:31 <pikhq_> evincar: Interpuncts are a bit harder to type, sadly.
05:40:51 * Sgeo was thinking some bizarre version of Internet Explorer
05:41:08 <Sgeo> Welp, Internet Explorer version SVS is the Son of God. It's official.
05:41:20 <pikhq_> IESVS, now with more YHWH!
05:42:08 <evincar> pikhq_: Crap, just found out interpunct isn't in my compose map! This must be fixed.
05:42:17 <evincar> Lest I type • instead.
05:43:12 <pikhq_> I think the only one I can get at trivially is "・".
05:44:01 <pikhq_> Which is U+30FB, KATAKANA MIDDLE DOT
05:47:01 <evincar> Also, time to write a script for cat /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose | grep
05:47:09 <evincar> Because that shit's handy.

05:59:31 <fizzie> he 4-grams that begin 'garble blargle merf'"), because the answer to that is just the parent node of where you were.

06:13:48 <fizzie> Coincidentally enough, fungot doesn't actually use the n-gram model for ending the sentence in the usual way (by just generating until it generates an end-of-sentence-token). It wasn't quite controllable enough, so I just flagged all (n-1)-grams that have occurred at the end of a sentence with a "can-stop" flag, and then for each such place it has a probability of stopping which depends on the length of the generated stuff.

07:33:15 <zzo38> I have once designed an electronic circuit which can do CPU, there is only one instruction, which is transfer register and jump. The different registers have different side effects.

13:57:19 <fizzie> North UNDERland, certainly it's made out of caves.
13:57:58 <fizzie> "Cateran Hole is a circa 45m length cave set in the Gritstone of Cateran Hill in Northumberland. It lies about 4 miles due north of Eglingham, and can be reached by lining up the tall mast behind the farm with the left-hand end of the wood to the side of the Quarry House farm (to the north of the cave), then walking on this bearing."

13:58:34 <Phantom_Hoover> You underestimate the scarcity of notable things in Northumberland.

18:01:30 <elliott> fizzie: A variable-length n-gram model would take up considerably more disk space. :p
18:02:05 <elliott> fizzie: I'm not sure what smoothing/interpolation would be there -- merging together the four-gram and five-gram lists and picking from that, rather than just using one?

18:06:13 <elliott> 06:13:48: <fizzie> Coincidentally enough, fungot doesn't actually use the n-gram model for ending the sentence in the usual way (by just generating until it generates an end-of-sentence-token). It wasn't quite controllable enough, so I just flagged all (n-1)-grams that have occurred at the end of a sentence with a "can-stop" flag, and then for each such place it has a probability of stopping which depends on the length of the generated stuff.

18:10:04 <elliott> 06:41:50: <Patashu> they'd be easy to crack actually
18:10:04 <elliott> 06:41:52: <Patashu> if the algorithm is public
18:10:04 <elliott> lol
18:10:12 <elliott> yeah just like all the SHA algorithms are totally beaten
18:10:13 <elliott> RSA too
18:10:19 <elliott> they just weren't hidden enough
18:10:27 <elliott> waht is cryprogrtaphy
18:10:27 <CakeProphet> heh
18:10:37 <elliott> mind you the originals are insanely crackable
18:10:39 <elliott> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripcode#Description_of_the_algorithm
18:10:42 <elliott> just look how beautiful it is
18:10:49 <CakeProphet> help what is public key

18:12:25 <CakeProphet> I imagine this has been on reddit
18:12:28 <elliott> i looked at that but then i ran away scared oops
18:12:33 <ais523> elliott: those are the correct HTML escapes, aren't they?
18:12:35 <elliott> todo: read ezyang's words in depth
18:12:40 <CakeProphet> I can kind of follow it up to like... the last part
18:12:53 <CakeProphet> it helps to read the previous blog that he links, where he explains some of the notation.
18:12:54 <elliott> ais523: yes, but you don't escape something that is going into crypt(), rather than being rendered as html
18:13:29 <ais523> oh, that's on the /input/ to crypt()
18:13:33 <ais523> that is stupid
18:13:54 <CakeProphet> he interesting to see a diagram of the partial orders of data types.
18:13:57 <CakeProphet> *it's interesting
18:14:53 <CakeProphet> > head undefined
18:14:54 <lambdabot> *Exception: Prelude.undefined
18:15:07 <fizzie> Smoothing would involve considering the 4-grams too (either always, with interpolation; or sometimes, with backoff) when generating the next word, so that the model can generate also words for which there are no 5-grams in your dataset. Anyway, it's not really a necessary thing for babbling; fungot manages without. It's more important for actual language modeling purposes, where you have new data coming in.
18:15:07 <fungot> fizzie: the point. for the first time in i don't really have a choice based on a strong pale relationship will serve to balance and complement each other's, since there is no quadrant which naturally conceals two licorice scotty dogs are still here. you tell him. you thought he'd washed his hands of you.
18:15:24 <CakeProphet> though he has the diagram for head messed up. He says bottom -> []
18:15:34 <CakeProphet> but it's obviously bottom -> bottom
18:15:46 <CakeProphet> or maybe I'm reading it wrong.
18:15:50 <fizzie> (Mostly away; have to leave to Florence tomorrow at 0530am or so, and I haven't really packed yet.)
18:16:22 <CakeProphet> yes, I'm reading it wrong.
18:17:07 <CakeProphet> it's not showing the partial order of the output values.
18:17:15 <fizzie> elliott: Also, I typed the C64-related question first, and while typing it someone else went and switched the style away to something else, so had to do some cut-write-pasting.
18:17:20 <CakeProphet> just demonstrating that it's monotonic.
18:17:24 <elliott> fizzie: But I was _just_ about to ask about my insane case. :p
18:17:47 <fizzie> I had also another C64 question ready to go when someone else changed the styles again, so I just abandoned that one.
18:18:34 <CakeProphet> the diagram for const is kind of neat.
18:21:01 <pikhq_> Sweet Jesus I want. Researchers at IBM are putting together a 250 petabyte array. For no apparent reason.

18:21:07 <elliott> fizzie: Anyway, my next question was going to be about what a nice (space and time-efficient) way to store reverse ngrams would be too. That is: literally just reverse the input data and n-gram that, along with the forwards n-grams, such that I can either query for "words appearing after" or "words appearing before" for any n-gram.
18:21:30 <elliott> fizzie: I was just going to say "turn every leaf [(String,Int)] into ([(String,Int)], [(String,Int)])", but, you know, maybe there's a nicer way.
18:21:40 <elliott> Maybe a doubly-linked tree. :p
18:22:46 <CakeProphet> dude use teh huffmans
18:23:06 <elliott> fizzie: Also: BLOOM FILTERS. Tell me bloom filters help. BLOOM. FILTERS.
18:23:54 <pikhq_> elliott: Always does.
18:24:13 <elliott> fizzie: BLOOM FILTERS
18:25:04 <CakeProphet> I wonder if it would save space to keep an array of encountered words, and then the tree merely stores the indices..?
18:25:18 <CakeProphet> I doubt that would help at all actually.
18:25:26 <elliott> CakeProphet: With a billion words, I doubt it.
18:25:34 <CakeProphet> because now you have two data structures. :P
18:25:39 <elliott> I mean, that's four bytes; words are four bytes. Sometimes. :p
18:25:47 <elliott> I guess it might be smaller.
18:25:52 <fizzie> I do that (use 32-bit -- well, 28-bit, I think -- integers) in fungot.
18:25:52 <fungot> fizzie: it is a hate so pure and... pumpkin seeds? are you volunteering? prospit. by which of course it was a nasty pair of beagle puss glasses, several () a blank card, producing a different hole in the roof
18:26:05 <fizzie> I mean, the unigram list is a lot shorter than the 5-gram list.
18:26:25 <CakeProphet> elliott: well if you're using Haskell then every word will be larger than four bytes I believe.
18:27:27 <elliott> CakeProphet: Dude.
18:27:31 <elliott> It's going to be almost a terabyte.
18:27:37 <elliott> You think I'm storing it in memory?
18:27:46 <CakeProphet> HUFFMAN CODING.
18:27:49 <elliott> fizzie: Right, it's true.
18:28:03 <CakeProphet> elliott: I didn't know it was TB.
18:28:13 <elliott> fizzie: Just answer the easy questions and avoid the ones involving the backwards n-grams, why don't you. :p
18:28:14 <CakeProphet> or rather, had forgotten
18:28:18 <fizzie> As for building the reverse-context tree (if you want to do it; certainly you could make it work with a normal trie), assuming you don't want to do any pruning, I think it should be reasonably simple to just build it from a provided n-gram list. That's what fungot's conversion script does to the VariKN-generated model.
18:28:18 <fungot> fizzie: for a while it was frustrating. they are the most delicious bunches, not the nap in the grand dad for one for christmas. he is a rather piss-poor excuse. we 8oth of us, the whole plan hinged on that.
18:28:18 <CakeProphet> that that was the issue at hand.
18:28:29 <elliott> CakeProphet: Well, twenty five gigs compressed, but when put into a reasonable-ish database and decompressed, about a terabyte, says the fizzie.
18:28:53 <fizzie> The terabyte might be a bit high estimate, I think that included Postgres indices too.
18:28:58 <elliott> fizzie: Well, yes, but I'm asking how to do a backwards tree in the same thing.
18:29:05 <elliott> Or, hmm, you might not be trying to answer that.
18:29:14 <elliott> <elliott> fizzie: Anyway, my next question was going to be about what a nice (space and time-efficient) way to store reverse ngrams would be too. That is: literally just reverse the input data and n-gram that, along with the forwards n-grams, such that I can either query for "words appearing after" or "words appearing before" for any n-gram.
18:29:15 <elliott> <elliott> fizzie: I was just going to say "turn every leaf [(String,Int)] into ([(String,Int)], [(String,Int)])", but, you know, maybe there's a nicer way.
18:29:15 <elliott> <elliott> Maybe a doubly-linked tree. :p
18:29:18 <elliott> s/reverse/backwards/.
18:29:19 <CakeProphet> I recall reading about a compression algorithm that allowed for fast access but I can't recall the name...
18:29:21 <elliott> Clash of terminology there.
18:31:09 <CakeProphet> LZW would probably allow for fast reads?
18:31:29 <CakeProphet> since it's pretty simple to decode.
18:34:39 <fizzie> The tree, then. Well, assuming you have a sorted list of ngrams like "a b c foo -> w1; a b c bar -> w2; a b d foo -> w3; a b d bar -> w4" (with w1..w4 weights), what you want is a tree where the /c/b/a node contains [(foo, w1), (bar, w2)] and the /d/b/a node contains [(foo, w3), (bar, w4)].
18:35:07 <elliott> fizzie: I'm... not sure you understand me at all.
18:35:31 <fizzie> I'm not sure I'm trying to, I'm just elaborating on how I built it.
18:35:34 <elliott> Oh.
18:35:51 <elliott> I thought "The tree, then." was trying to answer my question.
18:36:35 <fizzie> Though there really isn't much to it, after that. I think I just built it by constructing the weight-list [(foo, w1), (foo, w2)] for one context (the n-grams are sorted, so they're all next to each other), and then just, you know, a tree-insertion.
18:36:44 <elliott> I suppose just storing what averages out to twice the data in a leaf would work.
18:36:50 <elliott> But it feels like I could do it more efficiently. :/
18:37:07 <elliott> (The only idea I had was to somehow build the tree loopy-style so that you could go up just as well as down and that worked somehow.)
18:39:38 <CakeProphet> if you're using the google data, you could flatten all of the year lines into a single to save a lot of space.
18:40:02 <elliott> The five-DVD web data is not per-year.
18:40:08 <fizzie> I don't think I have parent-pointers in my tree, since those aren't really needed for backoff either, if you just keep track of the current (at most 5 words deep) path you've descended. I think the perl-babbler is even a recursive function, so I could do backoff just by having a backoff-weight-derived probability for the function returning "I don't feel like generating a word today, why don't you have a go", at which point the previous recursion level would the
18:40:08 <fizzie> n use its weights. (Those being the (n-1)-gram weights.)
18:40:38 <fizzie> Anyway, I really neeeeed to pakc. This was just a random outburst. Happy to help, have a nice day, etc., etc.
18:41:26 <elliott> fizzie: For someone who isn't trying to answer my questions, you sure are replying to all my questions with advice that would be perfectly relevant if I hadn't explicitly said why I wanted a backwards path thing :P
18:42:08 <Phantom_Hoover> What *is* an n-gram, anyway.
18:42:25 <elliott> fizzie: For whenever: I basically just want two separate trees -- one built as usual, and another one built from the same data but with the data items themselves reversed. I just want to store the two in less than twice the space of one.
18:42:38 <CakeProphet> a sequence of n elements basically
18:42:42 <CakeProphet> from some other sequence.
18:42:44 <elliott> fizzie: I could obviously just do it on the leaves -- an "if you're going forwards" wordset and an "if you're going backwards" wordset in every leaf.
18:43:01 <CakeProphet> in this context an n-gram is a sequence of n words.
18:43:03 <elliott> fizzie: But it feels like I could, I don't know, make it so that just like descending the tree downwards when going forwards, you could somehow ascend it upwards when going backwards. Or something.
18:43:09 <fizzie> Oh, *that* sort of reversed. (Yes, I paid some attention, finally.)
18:43:22 <elliott> I DID say s/reversed/backwards/ for a reason :P
18:43:37 <fizzie> Unfortunately I don't have an immediate opinion on *that*. :p
18:43:56 <CakeProphet> Phantom_Hoover: for my acronym generator though I'm using n-grams of characters. So it can be any kind of sequence really.
18:44:05 <elliott> fizzie: But what about BLOOM FILTERS?

18:52:44 <fizzie> Normally you'd stop at "nds" there in the letter-case.

18:53:54 <elliott> All I have to do is store every parent as well as every child.
18:54:04 <elliott> That's probably more wasteful than just storing twice the data in leaves, though.
18:54:10 <CakeProphet> fizzie: personal preference. I think it's nicer without the @ pattern.
18:54:13 <elliott> fizzie: Ha, the Haskell Bug has got you.
18:54:16 <elliott> CakeProphet: tail is a partial function.
18:54:20 <elliott> You do not use partial functions when unnecessary.
18:54:38 <CakeProphet> ngrams n ls is also a partial function. in particular it is guaranteed to never have ls = []
18:54:55 <elliott> You don't know what a partial function is, I see.
18:55:01 <CakeProphet> no I do.
18:55:13 <CakeProphet> but it's the same thing. I am using tail in a case expression.
18:55:21 <elliott> No, there is no case expression there.
18:55:24 <pikhq_> elliott: Though he can be sure he will never be hitting the tail [] case.

18:55:48 <elliott> pikhq_: So readable!
18:55:58 <elliott> CakeProphet: You do not know what a case expression is.

19:07:42 <CakeProphet> elliott: pattern binding is semantically equivalent to case expressions in the Haskell Report, for what it's worth.

19:07:59 <pikhq> Or "what a modder puts in on day 1 of their 'ZOMG AWESOME' mod".

19:08:42 <pikhq> Okay, fine, give that one a week, maybe two if you don't want stupid breaking bugs.
19:08:50 <CakeProphet> language extensions = mass chaos? I guess?

19:23:36 <elliott> Yup
19:24:33 <fizzie> elliott: I don't see why not. If you have the raw data "a b c d e f g", you'll get forward-trigrams of "a b c; b c d; d e f; e f g" and backward-trigrams of "g f e; f e d; e d c; d c b; c b a", i.e. the same but reversed. (Also works with counts. "a b a b" + bigrams -> "a b, 2; b a 1" forward, "b a, 2; a b 1" backward, i.e. just mirror the bodies.)

19:24:51 <elliott> 13:57:13: <Phantom_Hoover> OH WAIT NO: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Caves_of_Northumberland
19:24:52 <elliott> "St Cuthbert's Cave is a natural sandstone cave in Northumberland approximately 13 km from Dunstanburgh Castle. It is neither very big nor deep, but rather takes the form of an overhang large enough to provide shelter for a small group.[1]"
19:25:00 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: AMAZING NORTHUMBERLAND CAVES.
19:25:09 <elliott> fizzie: Yeees, but I need what comes after them.
19:25:32 <elliott> fizzie: Oh, hmm, the n-gram set is not actually in the "n-gram -> next-word" format, is it?
19:25:43 <elliott> It's just "n+1-gram". :p
19:25:49 <fizzie> Well, no. There is no "what comes after them". You use the 5-grams with a 4-word context to tell what the fifth word is. The same will work for telling the first word.
19:25:50 <elliott> (So actually the five-grams are an order-four Markov chain.)
19:25:54 <fizzie> Yes.
19:25:57 <Phantom_Hoover> Cool, WP says Edinburgh has a total of 40.6 sunshine hours in December.
19:26:02 <elliott> Four words isn't as nice as five, but I suppose six-grams would be rather ludicrously big.
19:26:02 -!- zzo38 has joined.
19:26:17 <elliott> fizzie: Right, that should be easy enough then.
19:26:33 <elliott> I suppose I should download one of the books datasets so I can practice my micro-optimised C programming.
19:26:38 <elliott> I mean, I don't want to have to process it for a week.
19:26:44 <elliott> (I don't suppose you know how long it took to import into Postgres?)
19:27:09 <ais523> hmm, something I've been wondering about (again, Gregor might know); suppose you have nine or ten copies of the same piece of music, but each of them has sound effects overlaid
19:27:11 <CakeProphet> I wonder what fungot would do with the google book data.
19:27:12 <fungot> CakeProphet: about the bad news. over the last one. wait no, that just made you disappear" and stuff?
19:27:19 <ais523> what sort of algorithm should you use to recover the original music?
19:27:27 <elliott> CakeProphet: Well, this all started with me pressuring fizzie to make it work with the internet data.
19:27:35 <elliott> But that would require a rather large retooling of fungot. :p
19:27:35 <fungot> elliott: and the way that it shakes is the same but different too, for the time being it makes your life kind of the dumbest and most far fetched but whatever. you also like to play games sometimes.
19:27:45 <ais523> presumably you want some sort of "majority vote" between them, which is easy with images but rather harder with sounds, because DFTs need a window and no value for it is perfect
19:27:53 <elliott> ais523: Do you know which effect was applied to each?
19:28:01 <elliott> i.e. the algorithm used to distort
19:28:03 <ais523> elliott: not effects, they've simply been mixed with other sounds
19:28:07 <elliott> Oh.
19:28:12 <elliott> Never mind, then.
19:28:18 <ais523> e.g. you have a+b, a+c, a+d, a+e, and want a
19:28:24 <ais523> obviously it's impossible in general
19:28:34 <ais523> (this is just-out-of-curiosity, incidentally, I don't have an intended use for this)
19:29:00 <pikhq> Well, first you make a self-improving AI.
19:29:29 <ais523> I don't think that's /necessary.
19:29:34 <ais523> s\
19:29:39 <ais523> *s/\./\//
19:29:41 -!- oerjan has joined.
19:29:44 <pikhq> It's *a* solution, though.
19:29:44 <ais523> nor am I even certain it's sufficient
19:30:25 <ais523> atm I'm thinking along the lines of "DFT all of them with the same window, take majority vote of the DFTs, unDFT the result", but am not sure it would work
19:30:48 <ais523> in particular, as the DFT is an inherently approximate process, I'm not convinced that the majority vote wouldn't just see lots of different votes all picking different values
19:30:56 <pikhq> I'm pretty sure human audio processing can pull off something similar, but much slower and worse. I am presuming that a sufficiently advanced intelligence could make it work.
19:31:16 <pikhq> And a self-improving AI is an "easy" route to a sufficiently advanced intelligence.
19:31:21 <elliott> "easy"
19:31:34 <pikhq> Scare-quotes for obvious reasons.
19:31:45 <ais523> because a) it's not really easy, and b) it's scary
19:32:40 <Phantom_Hoover> pikhq, what the hell is the actual problem.
19:32:50 <CakeProphet> almost as scary as having sentient furless apes everywhere!
19:33:23 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: ais523 has a few different copies of the same piece of audio, with varying effects applied. He'd like the original audio.
19:33:37 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: it's a hypothetical problem, I'm just curious
19:33:37 <oerjan> > 86400-83486
19:33:38 <lambdabot> 2914
19:33:44 <ais523> pikhq: it's not effects, they've been mixed with other pieces of audio
19:33:53 <fizzie> ais523: Assuming additive noise, and a DFT window size that will cause it to have the correct spatio-temporal resolution, so that the corrupted bits don't overlap, I don't see why majority-vote wouldn't work. It'd be pretty close to applying the usual "restore the image" algorithm to the spectrogram of the sound. (It could be more robust to drop the phase information, though, and work just on the magnitude spectrogram, then reconstruct plausible phase afterward
19:33:53 <fizzie> s; that's not too tricky for overlapping windows.)
19:34:10 <elliott> fizzie: Relatedly: have I mentioned that speech interfaces TOTALLY SUCK?
19:34:15 <elliott> OHHH BURRRN
19:34:22 <fizzie> Repeatedly.
19:34:37 <ais523> fizzie: hmm, I'd /expect/ the phase to be the same if the original piece of music was the same, and a recording rather than synthesized
19:34:37 <pikhq> ais523: Ah. Yeah, human auditory processing does that all the friggin' time from a single audio stream (admittedly with bugs from time to time).
19:34:47 <CakeProphet> I am a speech interface. Speech to me.
19:34:52 <pikhq> So it's certainly possible in a hypothetical sense.
19:34:54 <Phantom_Hoover> I feel that the Scottish people in a voice-controlled elevator video is now relevant.
19:35:21 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: I can imagine how that would go merely from the description
19:35:38 <Phantom_Hoover> I would link it but I have to feed the cat.
19:35:38 <pikhq> elliott: Even if we presume utterly perfect speech recognition, they would suck.
19:35:46 <ais523> (one of the people in my old department, their job was to go round training voice-recognition systems on various regional accents, so I came across the problem second-hand quite a lot)
19:36:03 <pikhq> It's just bad for general UI use. Though it could probably be neat in some specific cases.
19:36:14 <ais523> is speech faster or slower than typing? my guess is slower
19:36:24 <ais523> I'm pretty sure it's slower than reading something that's already been written
19:36:26 <pikhq> ais523: Depends on the typist.
19:36:33 <ais523> habitual IRC users
19:36:35 <fizzie> ais523: So would I. Anyway, if you want something more "fancy", run a blind source separation thing on the recordings, something like ICA (independent component analysis), it's going to spit out something pretty close to the original audio as one of the outputs.
19:36:36 <CakeProphet> `quote gaping

19:36:42 <elliott> <pikhq> elliott: Even if we presume utterly perfect speech recognition, they would suck.
19:36:46 <elliott> I'm just trolling fizzie, stop it.
19:37:03 <ais523> fizzie: hmm, doesn't ICA take a matrix as input?
19:37:07 <pikhq> elliott: I'm presuming a modern computer running it.
19:37:21 <ais523> or am I thinking of something else?
19:37:32 <pikhq> So you'd have to be extremely detailed in your instructions for anything non-trivial.
19:38:03 <ais523> pikhq: I'd assume that a general-purpose voice recognition system that was practically usable for general computer use would be something like shellscript
19:38:12 <ais523> voice recognition is an inherently commandlinish sort of communication
19:38:21 <ais523> and so, we should keep the lessons learnt from command-lines
19:38:34 <CakeProphet> "trivially compute G factorial"
19:38:58 <fizzie> ais523: Well, it takes a multivariate signal, and it gives additive subcomponents out. Purely as a guess I'd suppose you'd best apply it to a spectral representation of the signal, again, as opposed to, say, the waveform.
19:39:55 <CakeProphet> spectral representation is usually better in all ways
19:40:01 <CakeProphet> except for that whole lack of time-variance.
19:40:07 <ais523> I wouldn't really expect it to be able to split out two different pieces of music from each other
19:40:19 <ais523> because it'd have to have some sort of concept of what harmony was, etc
19:41:04 <fizzie> ais523: From what I've heard, it works remarkably well "blindly" as long as your number of sources equals the number of microphones. (Even though the microphones all receive a different mixture of all the sources.)
19:41:05 <CakeProphet> harmony is easy.
19:41:25 <elliott> So, um.
19:41:31 <elliott> How big are the google books n-gram files?
19:41:42 <ais523> fizzie: oh, that's a different problem, I think
19:41:51 <elliott> Thirty-eight gigabytes for the four-grams compressed, I estimate.
19:41:52 <ais523> that's when you've got multiple pieces of music, each of which is mixed in different proportions
19:41:55 <elliott> I don't want to download thirty-eight gigabytes.
19:41:56 <ais523> and you want to get the originals back
19:42:16 <CakeProphet> ~/scripts/acro$ wc -c googledata/googlebooks-spa-all-1gram-20090715-7.csv.zip
19:42:19 <CakeProphet> 71850778
19:42:28 <CakeProphet> a single 1gram file zipped
19:42:29 <elliott> CakeProphet: That's just one of the files, isn't it?
19:42:31 <elliott> You need all of them.
19:42:36 <CakeProphet> yes I have them all.
19:42:43 <elliott> CakeProphet: Dude, those are just the one-grams.
19:42:48 <CakeProphet> yep.
19:42:50 <elliott> They're useless to me.
19:42:50 <ais523> wait, wouldn't a 1-gram file just be a letter frequency list?
19:42:52 <CakeProphet> those are the ones I need.
19:42:56 <fizzie> ais523: Well, why is that so very different? You have N recordings, each of which contains a single common source and its own sort of noise; that's just a matter of having mixing weights like that.
19:42:56 <CakeProphet> so I have them.
19:42:58 <elliott> ais523: no, just a list of words
19:43:03 <elliott> ais523: plus frequency
19:43:05 <ais523> elliott: oh, this is on words not letters?
19:43:09 <elliott> ais523: Yes.
19:43:11 <CakeProphet> elliott: but with wget I found it was very easy to grab every file as long as you have the space
19:43:19 <elliott> ais523: One billion "words" or so. :p
19:43:21 <ais523> fizzie: oh, I see what you mean
19:43:29 <CakeProphet> elliott: and the time.
19:43:30 <elliott> CakeProphet: Yes, but the one-grams are 9 files. The two-grams are ninety-nine.
19:43:40 <ais523> the problem there is that you're trying to split n+1 sources from n inputs there
19:44:04 <ais523> elliott: haha at your numeral use there
19:44:16 <fizzie> ais523: I'm not saying it'd work, but it might still find the shared source pretty well. You'd just get two types of noise in one of the outputs.
19:44:19 <ais523> yep
19:44:34 <elliott> ais523: I'm not quite sure what happened. :p
19:44:42 <pikhq> The 5-grams are 799 files.
19:44:54 <elliott> pikhq: Yes, well, I'm not downloading _them_.
19:45:02 <pikhq> Obv.
19:45:03 <elliott> When I want five-grams I'll buy the DVDs. :p
19:45:10 <CakeProphet> > 71850778*799
19:45:11 <pikhq> 9M each. Jesus.
19:45:11 <lambdabot> 57408771622
19:45:11 <elliott> That misses the year information though, but oh well.
19:45:14 <CakeProphet> assuming they're the same size.
19:45:14 <elliott> pikhq: 9M?
19:45:16 <CakeProphet> oh.
19:45:17 <elliott> More.
19:45:19 <elliott> Hundred.
19:45:23 <elliott> (Approx.)
19:45:32 <elliott> About eighty gigabytes.
19:45:33 <elliott> Approximately.
19:45:50 <elliott> fizzie: What's your favourite set of n-grams for n>two that isn't huge. :p
19:45:54 <CakeProphet> I /almost/ have enough space for that, I'd have to delete some music though.
19:46:22 <elliott> I don't have the lifespan to download that.
19:46:29 <CakeProphet> but soon I will have ONE AND A HALF FUCKING TERABYTES so I can just download everything I'd ever want to download
19:46:39 <pikhq> elliott: That's not actually *that* long to download.
19:46:56 <fizzie> elliott: I'unno, our Finnish stuff generally uses variable-length models, because it works on (statistical) morphemes, not words, so it needs rather long contexts.

19:48:13 <elliott> But my connection isn't always that good.
19:48:20 <pikhq> The 5-gram files are just 9M each.
19:48:27 <elliott> No, they're _not_.

19:48:41 <pikhq> I DID

19:48:50 <elliott> Click a different one, then.
19:48:52 <elliott> They're all over a hundred megabytes.
19:48:57 <elliott> Except maybe the first or last ones?
19:48:58 <elliott> I don't know.
19:49:02 <elliott> But the ones in the middle are all over a hundred.
19:49:09 <elliott> I know this because I'm clicking them this second.
19:49:34 <pikhq> Oh, look at that. 0, 1, 300, 799 are all 9M.
19:49:41 <elliott> X-D
19:49:44 <pikhq> Are we looking at the same corpus?
19:49:50 <elliott> pikhq: Evidently not, what are you looking at?
19:49:57 <pikhq> http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/datasets
19:50:01 <elliott> Which one?
19:50:04 <elliott> There are tens of corpuses on that list.
19:50:06 <elliott> Corpi.
19:50:25 <pikhq> ... Fek. I simply hit "end" to get to the 5-grams. Guess what that one is?
19:50:27 <pikhq> Spanish.
19:50:29 <elliott> Nice.
19:50:35 <elliott> You want the first set of five-grams. :p
19:50:43 <elliott> Or, well, the English One Million set might be rather more reasonable.
19:50:50 <elliott> Those zips are forty megs each.
19:50:53 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, *corpodes
19:50:58 <elliott> So... thirty gigs.
19:50:59 <pikhq> *There* we go.
19:51:02 <elliott> That's not too bad, I suppose.
19:51:17 <Phantom_Hoover> (That noise is every classics teacher ever choking.)
19:51:34 <elliott> fizzie: Anyhoo, the "store all the smaller n-grams too" reverse-context thing sounds nice, but it also sounds like it'd take up rather a lot more space.
19:51:36 <pikhq> Still, that's not too bad to download.
19:51:43 <pikhq> Bit annoying, perhaps, but *meh*.
19:52:11 <pikhq> Bit surprised they went with zip for this.
19:52:50 <pikhq> Sure, it's ubiquitous, but this is one of those things where LZMA's benefit would probably be notable.
19:53:06 <elliott> I doubt it.
19:53:08 <elliott> It's text.
19:53:14 <elliott> ais523: Maybe they should use azip.
19:53:22 <pikhq> I'll test in a bit.
19:53:38 <pikhq> When this file finishes.
19:54:06 <ais523> elliott: the funny thing is, azip works by extracting n-grams and giving new names to them
19:54:17 <ais523> recursively
19:54:33 <elliott> ais523: heh
19:54:49 <ais523> that's why the decompressor is so small
19:55:16 <fizzie> elliott: Well, it's not several magnitudes more (since there are exponentially less n-grams than (n+1)-grams; though in Google data they've minimum-count pruned it, so it's not quite as drastic), but sure, it's not free.
19:55:17 <elliott> ais523: now's your chance to convince me not to spend one hundred and fifty dollars on a bunch of data to feed to an IRC bot
19:55:27 <zzo38> The ZPAQ compression algorithm allows the compressed file to include a prediction program and a postprocessor program. I suppose one thing you can do is depending on the data being encoded
19:55:38 <elliott> fizzie: Did that Postgres have all the prefix-grams too? :p
19:56:31 <fizzie> elliott: I think it had all the data, yes. But this is from memory. (Though discounting again the pruning, the 4-grams would be implicit in the list of 5-grams.)
19:56:32 <ais523> elliott: it really isn't worth it
19:56:36 <pikhq> Looks like it'll be ~15 minutes.
19:56:45 <ais523> there are rather better things you could do with $150
19:56:50 <elliott> ais523: I don't think you realise just how dedicated I am to Markov IRC bots. They have always been in my heart.
19:56:58 <ais523> elliott: I don't think you're being serious
19:57:03 <elliott> And yeah, but I can't think of any right now and I have a lot of $150s lying around wasting away. (Money deteriorates, right?)

19:57:47 <ais523> ah
19:57:57 <ais523> I just don't know how much use you'll get out of them
19:58:18 <ais523> to some people, that sort of info is worth $150, because they need them for a project or their job or whatever
19:58:22 <pikhq> And you could wget them faster than it'd take for them to ship.
19:58:25 <ais523> to you, that doesn't apply, couldn't you just use a smaller dataset?
19:58:58 <fizzie> pikhq: They're not wgettable. This is not the Google Books dataset.
19:59:28 <pikhq> fizzie: Oh, so he's discussing purchasing, what, a *larger* corpus?
19:59:38 <oerjan> sadly the reverse of drop is not a standard function
19:59:56 <fizzie> pikhq: Yes. The Google Web "1T" corpus. It's from 1 trillion words of web-text, not puny ~15 billion words of book-text.
19:59:59 <ais523> elliott: if you want to learn about micro-optimization, go work on TAEB
20:00:04 <elliott> ais523: Well, the bot would ostensibly be entertaining; random internet is a rather difficult thing to imagine. But mostly it sounds like fun optimising the processing and on-disk formats so that it can all run in approximately realtime.
20:00:14 <monqy> reverse of drop? drop from end? take from end? help?
20:00:26 <ais523> elliott: it wouldn't be $150 entertaining, and it doesn't need a trillion-word data set to be entertaining
20:00:38 <oerjan> monqy: drop from end
20:00:40 <ais523> and you'd get bored pretty quickly
20:00:42 <elliott> ais523: Without a trillion-word data set there's no challenge. :p
20:00:48 <oerjan> take from end isn't either, though
20:00:51 <elliott> And you deeply underestimate my love of Markov bots.
20:00:54 <monqy> is elliott considering paying 150 bux to get a bunch of words
20:00:57 <ais523> just get a billion-word data set and make 1000 copies, adding in some statistical variation
20:01:01 <elliott> monqy: No, a bunch of n-grams.
20:01:03 <elliott> :p
20:01:07 <monqy> is elliott considering paying 150 bux to get a bunch of n-grams
20:01:15 <CakeProphet> oerjan: reverse . take n . reverse :P
20:01:15 <oerjan> monqy: it would be useful for getting rid of the "ds","s"... part above
20:01:15 <ais523> I don't think fungot's entertainment factor is worth $150
20:01:16 <fungot> ais523: man. it just so happens that today, the 13th of april. another day of uneventful but highly satisfying deliveries.
20:01:26 <ais523> and you wouldn't make something more entertaining than that
20:01:32 <elliott> ais523: fungot doesn't listen to your input.
20:01:32 <fungot> elliott: examine the wall behind a door there? or why he always was a little cagey, even when discussing the proper thanks.
20:01:35 <oerjan> CakeProphet: i sort of assumed you'd like to preserve a _little_ laziness
20:02:03 <CakeProphet> oerjan: I don't see how that's possible when you're dealing with things at the /end/ of a list.
20:02:09 <monqy> oerjan: ah, yes. I remember the last time I wanted to do something like that I did something like a takeWhile ((3 ==) . length)
20:02:21 <oerjan> CakeProphet: oh it's not _that_ hard
20:02:27 <monqy> CakeProphet: it's not hard at all
20:02:33 <oerjan> > iterate init [1..] !! 5
20:02:34 <lambdabot> [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28...
20:02:39 <oerjan> > iterate init [1..10] !! 5
20:02:40 <lambdabot> [1,2,3,4,5]
20:02:57 <monqy> how inefficient is that
20:02:59 <ais523> elliott: that makes fungot all the more entertaining when it comes up with something great
20:02:59 <fungot> ais523: the one who got you killed him for it? its the size of a bus wouldnt kill me at your computer you might be here too.
20:03:02 <oerjan> it's just not a named function, also i'm not sure how effective iterate init is
20:03:21 <oerjan> CakeProphet: oh wait you said take not drop
20:03:29 <elliott> ais523: Are you seriously saying fungot is the most entertaining possible Markov bot?
20:03:30 <fungot> elliott: man. it just so happens that today, the 13th of april. another day of uneventful but highly satisfying
20:03:30 <oerjan> yeah that would not be lazy
20:03:32 <ais523> besides, if you do a really good bot that predicts what comes after input, all you'll end up with is making everyone else in the channel redundant
20:03:32 <CakeProphet> yeah..
20:03:51 <ais523> elliott: I'm saying it's entertaining enough, and being better wouldn't make us much more inclined to set it off
20:04:09 <CakeProphet> I think elliott is mostly interested in the challenge.
20:04:10 <elliott> fizzie clearly approves, anyway. Obviously.
20:04:22 <elliott> And he's obviously the most mature, reasoned person of us all.
20:04:24 <elliott> Obviously.
20:04:35 <ais523> CakeProphet: can't you come up with a similar challenge that doesn't cost a huge amount of money for no good reason?
20:04:41 <ais523> or at least, if you can't, why can't elliott?
20:04:43 <monqy> elliott: i thought that was you.....
20:04:55 <monqy> everything i thought i knew is a lie
20:05:02 <CakeProphet> oh well yeah.. I wouldn't spend money on it.
20:05:20 <monqy> :'(
20:05:26 <monqy> I wouldn't spend money either
20:05:33 <CakeProphet> if I spent money on that data I would want to be doing something kind of important.
20:05:43 <elliott> I'll spent monqy on it.
20:05:48 <ais523> elliott: I see no evidence that fizzie approves
20:05:55 <Phantom_Hoover> Friendship monqy.
20:06:06 <elliott> ais523: Well, he wouldn't be advising me if not, OBVIOUSLY.
20:06:42 <monqy> not disapproving enough not to advise you on it
20:07:15 <monqy> I don;t really know what else I'd do with a bunch of n-grams other than make a stupid bot
20:07:21 <CakeProphet> help how do I make strong AI.
20:07:22 <monqy> probably aim a bit higher than markov though
20:07:53 <monqy> for the fun challenge/reward of having something better than markov
20:07:57 <CakeProphet> markov is eh pretty cool guy, doesn't afraid of anything.
20:08:03 <monqy> what
20:08:12 <elliott> monqy: You can't really... do much that isn't Markov-ish with n-grams, unless I'm mistaken.
20:08:23 <monqy> :(
20:08:26 <ais523> so they're pretty limited
20:08:48 <monqy> I guess I'd want a different dataset then...
20:08:55 <elliott> ais523: are you actually trying to come up with reasons for me not to get them because it's hilarious
20:09:04 <monqy> 150 is a lot of bux
20:09:35 <fizzie> Given that what you get from an n-gram is (n-1) words of context, I think it's pretty safe bet to say that the Markov assumption (of order n-1) will hold for most things you do with them.
20:09:54 <monqy> :(
20:10:16 <ais523> elliott: I think I've come up with most of them already
20:10:20 <ais523> I need to dip into more outlandish ones
20:10:20 <CakeProphet> !wacro
20:10:20 <EgoBot> SDBC
20:10:27 <monqy> miserable
20:10:31 <ais523> umm, if you buy one you'll be investigated for international statistics fraud
20:10:34 <CakeProphet> !wacro
20:10:35 <CakeProphet> !wacro
20:10:35 <CakeProphet> !wacro
20:10:35 <EgoBot> WGALB
20:10:35 <CakeProphet> !wacro
20:10:35 <EgoBot> LDMR
20:10:35 <EgoBot> CSRIPBOD
20:10:36 <EgoBot> GDDLBT
20:10:38 <elliott> ais523: but of course
20:10:42 <fizzie> Anyway, I'm sure I don't either approve or disapprove. I personally would not pay for that stuff, but that's not much of a reason for anyone else to base their behaviour on.
20:10:43 <ais523> because it's routine when that much data is invovled
20:10:50 <ais523> and I'm not sure you'd pass the routine screenings
20:11:16 <ais523> hmm, I wonder if I've ever bought anything that fizzie wouldn't buy in the same situation
20:11:19 <ais523> almost certainly, I suppose
20:11:36 <pikhq> Okay. xz gets the file to 53% the size of zip.
20:11:47 <elliott> pikhq: How long did it take
20:11:50 <monqy> I used to buy stupid things sometimes. now I don't buy anything. maybe one day I will buy again.
20:11:54 <pikhq> 15 minutes to compress.
20:12:18 * CakeProphet buys stupid things all the time thanks to the internet.
20:12:25 <ais523> I mostly buy things I need to survive and do my job, like food, transport, things like combs and toothbrushes, and the occasional laptop
20:12:34 <monqy> by stupid things i mostly mean books i don't read
20:12:36 <pikhq> And 13 seconds to decompress.
20:12:39 <Vorpal> <ais523> hmm, I wonder if I've ever bought anything that fizzie wouldn't buy in the same situation <-- what is the context, can't find it in the scrollback.
20:12:46 <Vorpal> I mean, what product
20:12:50 <Vorpal> where you discussing
20:13:02 <CakeProphet> actually no everything I have purchased online so far has been a valuable asset.
20:13:05 <ais523> Vorpal: fizzie saying that he personally wouldn't buy something, but that other people shouldn't make decisions on that basis
20:13:11 <CakeProphet> I can smoke gingerbread-flavored smoke WHENEVER I WANT.
20:13:13 <oerjan> <elliott> fizzie: I _can't_ really generate backwards n-grams, can I? Not from forwards n-grams; only from raw data.
20:13:14 <ais523> and the context of /that/ is a corpus of n-grams extracted from 1 trillion words
20:13:17 <Vorpal> ais523, indeed, that I saw
20:13:25 <Vorpal> ais523, heh
20:13:26 <oerjan> i'm wondering if it's possible in principle...
20:13:40 <Vorpal> ais523, and the statistics fraud thingy?
20:13:41 <elliott> oerjan: it obviously is
20:13:45 <elliott> oerjan: as fizzie showed later
20:13:52 <oerjan> oh
20:13:54 <elliott> oerjan: instead of taking (n-one) as prefix and the last one as the word following it
20:14:01 <elliott> take all but the first as the suffix
20:14:04 <elliott> and the first one as the word preceding it
20:14:26 <ais523> there's nothing inherently asymmetrical in n-grams
20:14:37 <ais523> you just need to sort the dataset differently
20:14:42 <calamari> can you guys lend me a few n-grams?
20:14:57 <elliott> calamari: They'll cost you.
20:15:05 <calamari> :)
20:15:09 <CakeProphet> $20n per n-gram
20:15:18 <monqy> are backwards n-grams better or something I'm bad at knowing things
20:15:18 <quintopia> calamari: they better be n+1-grams when you give them back
20:15:19 <Vorpal> calamari, here is a sample for free. it is for n=0 case.
20:15:41 <Vorpal> (it is free according to CakeProphet that is)
20:16:05 <CakeProphet> yes I am an much credible expert
20:16:09 <oerjan> elliott: ok i was thinking of a (possibly) slightly harder problem, where you don't have exact counts but only the probability of each final letter given the n-1 first ones
20:16:12 <fizzie> ais523: I am rather stingy, so I guess it's likely there's something I wouldn't buy.
20:16:16 <elliott> oerjan: Right, that's what I was thinking.
20:16:19 <ais523> fizzie: so am I
20:16:40 <elliott> oerjan: Hmm, if you represent probability as the number of occurrences (which seems reasonable), then it's easy to do, I suppose.
20:16:48 <ais523> the problem is, quite a few things that people pay money for are available legally for free
20:16:57 <elliott> fizzie: Say, how many n-grams are there in total, approximately?
20:17:00 <elliott> In that DVD set.
20:17:00 <ais523> and most of the others, there is no reason to buy them, as they take up space and don't benefit you
20:17:08 <elliott> I'm wondering how many bits you need to store the occurrences of a word coming after a prefix.
20:17:10 <fizzie> elliott: Didn't the LDC description page have counts?
20:17:15 <elliott> fizzie: Oh, maybe. I don't remember it.
20:17:26 <oerjan> elliott: um then you have extra data, namely the total count. it's _without_ the total count it becomes slightly interesting.
20:17:26 <elliott> fizzie: I'm wondering whether it's a good idea to maybe reduce it a bit so that it takes up less bytes.
20:17:36 <elliott> oerjan: Well, right.
20:17:39 <fizzie> elliott: Check there, it's faster than a zcat | wc -l for the whole data.
20:18:20 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, what are you *doing*?
20:18:26 <quintopia> oerjan: its one five-hundred-thousand-gram
20:18:50 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: N-GRAMS.
20:19:02 <elliott> fizzie: zwc. :p
20:19:15 <oerjan> quintopia: wat
20:19:25 <CakeProphet> N, elliott's drug of choice.
20:19:44 <quintopia> oerjan: you can also pretend it is 500,000 1-grams
20:20:01 <Vorpal> fizzie, what is the data elliott is using? that thing you and ais discussed?
20:20:01 <CakeProphet> no need to pretend.
20:20:04 <oerjan> quintopia: that is not the same amount of information
20:20:18 <elliott> Vorpal: Ostensibly, a five-DVD set of Average Internet.
20:20:28 <monqy> am i in it
20:20:29 -!- MDude has joined.
20:20:29 <quintopia> you have to throw out some information to treat it that way
20:20:32 <Vorpal> elliott, which you bought legally?
20:21:17 <elliott> Vorpal: No, I stole the DVDs from the n-gram shop.
20:21:36 <CakeProphet> elliott is a sick perverted fuck.
20:21:39 <fizzie> Completely unrelated, but I have a slightly annoying on-off NetHack save. It's turn 25k-or-so, I'm standing in the Castle throne room, I've checked ~all so far generated objects, and there have been no (0) instances of: bags of holding (amulet-soko), magic lamps, jumping boots, levitation boots, potions of levitation, rings of levitation. I'm not quite sure how I'm supposed to go over the trapdoors, if I need to come back at some point.
20:21:46 <Vorpal> elliott, ah
20:21:53 <elliott> Vorpal: (I don't actually have it yet.)
20:22:00 <Vorpal> elliott, huh
20:22:03 <elliott> ais523: fizzie NEEDS YOUR HELP.
20:22:18 <fizzie> Well, there's the castle wand, but...
20:22:22 <elliott> Vorpal: But, I mean, there are comparably huge data-sets available for free download: http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/datasets
20:22:36 <CakeProphet> protip: use the free one
20:22:43 <ais523> fizzie: I take it you haven't looted the Castle chest yet?
20:22:59 <ais523> I will nearly always burn a wish on a blessed ring of levitation in that situation
20:23:03 <monqy> test with the free one and if you get something amazing go for the big one? I still wouldn't, though.
20:23:08 <Vorpal> fizzie, pudding farming.
20:23:10 <ais523> in fact, I wish for one at the Castle if I don't have a levitation osurce
20:23:11 <elliott> monqy: That's what I'm going to do.
20:23:24 <ais523> even if I can solve the immediate problem of the trapdoors
20:23:34 <elliott> fizzie: Something that isn't pudding farming.
20:23:37 <Vorpal> fizzie, also can't you get a spellbook from sacrifising when your god is already happy? Which could end up being levitation
20:23:48 <Vorpal> elliott, why!
20:23:48 <ais523> the most urgent use of wishes is filling out your ascension kit items
20:23:51 <Vorpal> :P
20:23:55 <ais523> =oLev is an ascension kit item
20:24:01 <calamari> fizzie: hack the save file
20:24:13 <elliott> Vorpal: Because then you get subjected to the cruel, harsh punishment of pudding farming.
20:24:19 <Vorpal> elliott, hm true
20:24:30 <Vorpal> elliott, some people /like/ it though
20:24:33 <Vorpal> go figure
20:24:45 <elliott> Vorpal: Well, elves like you _do_ need to pass the time SOMEHOW.
20:24:51 <calamari> I never could get into nethack.. moria was fun tho
20:25:05 <fizzie> ais523: The wand is untouched, yes. I guess I could just go and wish for it, right.
20:25:14 <ais523> fizzie: you should make sure you have a way to recharge the wand first
20:25:25 <Vorpal> elliott, I'm terrible at nethack too, never had a streak of more than 2 ascensions.
20:25:26 <ais523> but apart from that, yes, unless you're going wishless
20:25:34 <ais523> Vorpal: ascending even once is not "terrible"
20:25:38 <elliott> What ais523 said. :p
20:25:40 <Vorpal> ais523, I was joking.
20:25:51 <fizzie> ais523: Possibly to counter the lack of e.g. a single BoH, I have stumbled across four randomly generated scrolls of charging.
20:25:57 <elliott> Vorpal: It's easier to tell when you're joking if it isn't indistinguishable from normal you
20:26:04 <ais523> I'm not sure I've ever got a long actual streak, but recently, games I play with the intention of ascending them, I typically ascend
20:26:12 <Vorpal> elliott, how do you know I'm not always the joker.
20:26:19 <ais523> fizzie: make sure the one you use on the wand is blessed
20:26:22 <ais523> Vorpal: because you have no sense of humour
20:26:38 <elliott> What ais523 said :P
20:26:40 <CakeProphet> the only game I've played recently is Zombies mode of CoD: Black Ops
20:26:44 <Vorpal> ais523, come on. I can laugh at things.
20:26:48 <CakeProphet> which I am amazing at.
20:27:01 <monqy> whats games help
20:27:36 <elliott> vagrant is the only good roguelike, guys.
20:27:46 <Vorpal> <fizzie> ais523: Possibly to counter the lack of e.g. a single BoH, I have stumbled across four randomly generated scrolls of charging. <-- may the RNG be with you
20:27:47 <ais523> elliott: incidentally, it turns out it took me longer to stop reading about Diplomacy than I typically take to stop reading TV Tropes
20:27:54 <elliott> ais523: haha
20:27:57 <ais523> Vorpal: was that meant to be a joke?
20:28:13 <CakeProphet> DWOHRF FAHRTRUSS
20:28:23 <monqy> hi
20:28:26 <ais523> elliott: I'm very good at TV Tropes dicipline, I mentally decide whether the number of trope-related tabs I have open should increase or decrease, and browse accordingly
20:28:30 <elliott> CakeProphet: is not a roguelike
20:28:40 <ais523> is a game, though
20:28:44 <ais523> well, if you fix the spelling
20:28:51 <elliott> (Slaves to Armok: God of Blood, Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress: Adventurer mode is a roguelike, though)
20:28:53 <Vorpal> <ais523> Vorpal: was that meant to be a joke? <-- what do you think
20:29:02 <elliott> (but Dwarf Fortress refers to Slaves to Armok: God of Blood, Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress: Dwarf Fortress mode)
20:29:08 <CakeProphet> elliott: you assume that I say things in a context when in fact I am just a bot.
20:29:17 <Vorpal> dwarf fortress is easier than nethack
20:29:17 <ais523> Vorpal: well, it had the structure and context in which I'd expect a joke
20:29:19 <ais523> but it wasn't funny
20:29:23 <ais523> at all
20:29:24 <elliott> I wonder if adventurer mode is any fun
20:29:27 <elliott> has anyone played it?
20:29:32 <Vorpal> ais523, it wasn't supposed to be a joke.
20:29:32 <monqy> no
20:29:48 <Vorpal> ais523, nor was it completely serious
20:29:52 <elliott> has ais523 played it, has Phantom_Hoover played it HAS ANYONE
20:30:04 <ais523> elliott: I haven't
20:30:07 <Vorpal> elliott, ToadyOne has.
20:30:11 <ais523> and almost certainly, at least one person has
20:30:15 <Vorpal> ais523, you never played df at all
20:30:19 <elliott> I doubt Toady has ever played his own game
20:30:22 <elliott> he wouldn't have any time to make it
20:30:28 <ais523> incidentally, UID 2 cropped up on Slashdot, to comment on CmdrTaco resigning
20:30:33 <Vorpal> elliott, he played it to debug it most certainly
20:30:40 <elliott> ais523: who is UID 2?
20:30:42 <ais523> and it lead to a whole thread of UID-based discussion
20:30:44 <ais523> elliott: Hemos
20:30:53 <ais523> which is apparently ungooglable because it's a pronoun in Spanish
20:30:58 <elliott> ais523: and also, is "resigning" actually the right term? I can't imagine Slashdot as a business :P
20:31:05 <ais523> elliott: it is a business, technically
20:31:11 <elliott> why does it have a .org, then?
20:31:21 <Vorpal> elliott, because ICANN fails
20:31:22 <ais523> because it wasn't a business originaly
20:31:23 <ais523> then kept the domain name
20:31:50 <CakeProphet> ICANNT lulz
20:31:56 <monqy> hi
20:32:02 <Vorpal> monqy, hello?
20:32:04 <monqy> hi
20:32:05 <elliott> ais523: is there a UID 0, or does it start at one?
20:32:31 <Vorpal> elliott, in what context
20:32:42 <Vorpal> on *nix, uid 0 is root
20:32:42 <elliott> Vorpal: find it yourself, if you want to butt in
20:32:53 <ais523> Vorpal: I don't know, but I guess it starts at 1
20:33:04 <elliott> CakeProphet: thanks
20:33:15 <CakeProphet> wat
20:33:19 <Vorpal> ais523, er, you should know uid 0 = root.
20:33:20 <elliott> monqy: sorry, misping
20:33:32 <ais523> Vorpal: I thought we were discussing Slashdot
20:33:40 <Phantom_Hoover> <elliott> has ais523 played it, has Phantom_Hoover played it HAS ANYONE
20:33:42 <elliott> HackEgo: Vorpal decided to butt in
20:33:43 <Vorpal> ais523, I assume UID 2 is some user there?
20:33:46 <Phantom_Hoover> I haven't, no.
20:33:47 <ais523> and Slashdot UIDs go above 65535, so are not traditional UNIX UIDs
20:33:48 <elliott> glogbot: But he doesn't know what we're talking about
20:33:55 <elliott> fizzie: Then you pinged him instead of me for some reason
20:34:03 <ais523> Vorpal: that was what started the conversation in the first place?
20:34:07 <Vorpal> ais523, oh so you mean slashdot account IDs
20:34:15 <elliott> yiyus: this is ridiculous
20:34:16 <CakeProphet> I was thinking, "Why would elliott ever thank me for something in this universe."
20:34:22 <Vorpal> ais523, I assume it was a slashdot user *called* "UID 2"
20:34:25 <CakeProphet> clearly I have moved to a new universe.
20:34:26 <Vorpal> assumed*
20:34:32 <elliott> Vorpal: smart
20:35:00 <Vorpal> EgoBot, really?
20:35:35 <CakeProphet> What i slove? Baby d on't hrut me.
20:35:38 <Phantom_Hoover> BeholdMyGlory, are we doing a 'ping random people' thing?
20:35:54 <elliott> Slereah: no
20:36:09 <ais523> you will end up annoying most of the channel if you keep it up
20:36:12 <Vorpal> pikhq, what made you think that?
20:36:14 <Phantom_Hoover> chickenzilla, looks like it.
20:36:16 <elliott> mycroftiv: Nonsense
20:36:19 <CakeProphet> CakeProphet: hi

20:36:50 <ais523> it's as bad as the sequence that lasted over an hour in another channel where everyone omitted the letter 'd' from all their comments after someone deliberately misinterpreted a joke by an admin
20:36:51 <CakeProphet> chickenzilla: yeah I am in agreement with yorick
20:37:04 <Vorpal> ais523, hehe
20:37:04 <elliott> ais523: I on't see why we should o that.

20:45:39 <elliott> It's UNIX-HATERS, per my request.
20:45:43 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh, right.
20:45:43 <elliott> :p
20:46:42 <elliott> Ho hum, I guess I will write this program in C.
20:46:52 <CakeProphet> Gregor: ^^^^^^^^^
20:47:16 <Vorpal> elliott, what program
20:47:24 <elliott> Vorpal: n-gram processor.
20:47:28 <Vorpal> elliott, why C
20:47:39 <elliott> Vorpal: Because I need to process hundreds of gigabytes of data.
20:47:44 <elliott> Without waiting all year.
20:47:47 <Vorpal> elliott, and haskell isn't up to that?
20:47:56 <elliott> Vorpal: Sure it is, but I'm really impatient.
20:48:05 <elliott> The time spent micro-optimising a C program will pay off because Unix.
20:48:11 <Vorpal> heh
20:48:13 <CakeProphet> 1) open perl 2) use slurp mode 3) ???? 4) profit
20:48:16 <elliott> It's obviously going to be IO-bound, and Unix IO is terrible.
20:48:18 <Vorpal> elliott, use assembler
20:48:19 <elliott> CakeProphet: Good luck with that
20:48:21 <elliott> Vorpal: no
20:48:23 <Vorpal> CakeProphet, slurp mode?
20:48:28 <elliott> Vorpal: The bot itself will be written in Haskell of course
20:48:28 <CakeProphet> elliott: well that /was/ sort of the premise of the joke...
20:48:45 <CakeProphet> Vorpal: makes the read operation read the entire contents of the file to a string.
20:48:46 <Vorpal> elliott, it is even faster if you know what you are doing in asm
20:48:52 <Vorpal> CakeProphet, XD
20:48:53 <elliott> Vorpal: No it's not, IO-bound
20:49:07 <Vorpal> elliott, well writing your own IO layer I mean
20:49:09 <Vorpal> in the kernel
20:49:27 <Vorpal> elliott, anyway how large was it?
20:49:29 <Vorpal> a few GB?
20:49:34 <Vorpal> should fit nicely into ram
20:49:40 <elliott> Have I really got one with a shitload of punctuation as the starters?
20:49:47 <elliott> What a terrible test dataset.
20:49:50 <elliott> Vorpal: About a terabyte.
20:50:00 <Vorpal> elliott, you have the disk for that!?
20:50:01 <quintopia> should fit nicely into RAM
20:50:12 <quintopia> because who doesnt have a terabyte of ram?
20:50:13 <ais523> is a terabyte of RAM standard yet?
20:50:15 <elliott> Vorpal: A terabyte's worth of external storage costs about 0 pounds
20:50:28 <ais523> (I actually don't know, I tend to have really low-end hardware)
20:50:30 <Vorpal> elliott, over the internet? or compressed? or both?
20:50:34 <CakeProphet> Vorpal: that's $70 to be exact
20:50:35 <elliott> ais523: I refuse to believe you don't know
20:50:45 <ais523> I know a TB of hard drive storage was standard a few years ago for external drives
20:50:53 <ais523> and presumably is beginning to become standard for internal drive snow too
20:50:57 <ais523> *drives now
20:51:01 <elliott> Vorpal: What?
20:51:02 <ais523> but I'm not sure about RAM
20:51:07 <Vorpal> ais523, I have 16 GB in my desktop. It is probably mid-upper end. I know someone with a desktop with 32 GB RAM. I have over 1 TB of disk storage though
20:51:17 <ais523> are people still sticking at 3GB because Windows refuses to use any more unless you pay it lots of money?
20:51:31 <CakeProphet> Vorpal: compared to most people I know 16 GB is currently upper-mid-upper end.
20:51:35 <Vorpal> elliott, where the fuck are you going to be storing 1 TB of data. You said 5 DVDs before. That is way less
20:51:43 <CakeProphet> lolcompression
20:51:48 <ais523> Vorpal: uncompressed, presumably
20:52:04 <Vorpal> ais523, right. Whatever it is compresses extremely well then
20:52:14 <elliott> Vorpal: It's called text.
20:52:22 <elliott> Text compresses extremely well, unsurprisingly.
20:52:31 <ais523> and alphabetised text, even more so
20:52:34 <elliott> Vorpal: Anyway, it comes on five DVDs, but obviously decompresses to disk.
20:53:01 <Vorpal> elliott, it won't be IO bound at that compression ratio I suspect. Might well be CPU bound, depending on compression algorithm. If gzip it will probably be limited by ram bandwidth
20:53:10 <Vorpal> (guesstimate)
20:53:15 <quintopia> i dont use hard disks anymore. my data is stored on a solid state device etched into a planet-sized ball of diamond. upside: i can store 2000 exabytes of movies, books, and music. downside: a fetch takes about 8000 years. it's a tradeoff.
20:53:18 <elliott> Vorpal: dude, you have no idea what you are talking about.
20:53:21 <pikhq> ais523: Actually, you only need to get 64-bit Windows to surpass 3GiB.
20:53:21 <elliott> I'm working on the uncompressed data.
20:53:36 <ais523> pikhq: which still, for many people, means an upgrade that costs money
20:53:50 <elliott> ais523: most people don't worry about the cost of windows when buying expensive hardware
20:53:51 <Vorpal> quintopia, did you calculate those values?
20:53:54 <ais523> but yes, I think that they'd have trouble justifying an arbitrary limit that's close to MAXINT
20:54:01 <ais523> on a 64-bit system where MAXINT is higher
20:54:26 <pikhq> Home Basic does 8GiB, Home Premium 16, Pro, Enterprise, & Ultimate 192.
20:54:42 <elliott> Hey quintopia, I found you a subreddit: http://static.reddit.com/ads/PostCollapse.jpg
20:54:44 <Vorpal> pikhq, what one is only limited to the address space limits of the processor?
20:54:51 <pikhq> 2008R2 Foundation does 8, Standard 32, Enterprise, Datacenter and Itanium does 2 TiB.

20:55:17 <lambdabot> 4.801919418315972e10
20:55:44 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, it wouldn't make very much sense.
20:55:47 <oerjan> quintopia: i'm gonna hazard a guess your etching is not very optimal
20:55:51 <Phantom_Hoover> I mean, what would you look at?
20:56:02 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, eh?
20:56:19 <quintopia> Vorpal: the 8000 is calculated. the diamond planet was said to be about 4000 lightyears away. i pulled the capacity out of my ass.
20:56:31 <Vorpal> quintopia, ah
20:56:35 <elliott> Calling a program that generates a tree gentry: hilarious?
20:56:37 <quintopia> let's say "i share the planet with other people"
20:56:37 <Phantom_Hoover> quintopia, oh god what are you doing.
20:56:55 <pikhq> Vorpal: Windows HPC seems to be all about clustering. Without a single shared address space.
20:57:40 <Vorpal> pikhq, ah
20:57:58 <pikhq> And it has a max of 128 GiB.
20:58:02 <pikhq> Per node, obviously.
20:58:03 <Phantom_Hoover> Can you even etch onto diamond?
20:58:13 <Vorpal> pikhq, huh. Datacenter does more
20:58:33 <pikhq> Yup.
20:58:34 <Phantom_Hoover> I thought you needed a semiconductor or something.
20:58:52 <pikhq> Fun fact: there is no Microsoft end-user 32-bit OS that supports more than 4 GiB.
20:59:00 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, you could use impure diamond
20:59:01 <pikhq> Even ones that absolutely need PAE to run.
20:59:21 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, somehow I doubt the planet is correctly doped.
20:59:29 <Vorpal> pikhq, which ones need PAE then
20:59:33 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: That's illegal.
20:59:40 <pikhq> I *think* they started mandating NX support.
20:59:46 <pikhq> With 7.
20:59:50 <Vorpal> pikhq, ah. So no one uses PAE
20:59:53 <Vorpal> how silly
21:00:08 <olsner> pikhq: the amount of memory allowed is included in the kind of license you have, and the normal "client" licenses iirc put the limit at 4GB
21:00:20 <pikhq> olsner: Only on 32-bit.
21:00:32 <ais523> someone managed to hexedit a 32-bit consumer Windows (I forget which) into supporting more than 4 GiB of memory
21:00:32 <pikhq> x86_64 Windows starts at 8 and goes up.
21:00:43 <ais523> finding which bytes the limit was stored in must have been quite tricky
21:00:52 <pikhq> Wouldn't be too hard once you have that, though.
21:00:52 <olsner> pikhq: ah, ok ... it's not any kind of technical limit anyway, just a "how good computer you can have without paying more for the OS"
21:00:59 <pikhq> olsner: *Very* well aware.
21:01:02 <elliott> ais523: not really: put too much ram in, stick a debugger on it
21:01:04 <Vorpal> ais523, you could disassemble it to figure out
21:01:06 <olsner> pikhq: ok :)
21:01:13 <pikhq> I mean, hell, Windows *2000* went up to 32 GiB.
21:01:17 <elliott> there are tools for doing low-level debugging of windows, IIRC
21:01:20 <ais523> neither approach seems too practical
21:01:36 <ais523> you'd have to debug/disassemble Windows' entire boot sequence, and that takes forever even running full speed
21:01:54 <ais523> or, hmm, maybe just the memory allocator, that would be a lot faster
21:01:58 <pikhq> Oh, hrm. Linux currently has a hard-coded limit on addresses.
21:02:00 <Vorpal> elliott, microsoft provides a kernel debugger
21:02:03 <Vorpal> pikhq, oh?
21:02:05 <ais523> because the allocator would need to know what the limit was too
21:02:06 <pikhq> You can only use up to 128 TiB.
21:02:14 <elliott> ais523: running it under a kernel debugger won't slow it down that much..
21:02:15 <pikhq> ... Per process.
21:02:28 <elliott> ais523: you just need to breakpoint when it crashes, then edge back from there :)
21:02:28 <pikhq> Also, only 64 TiB of physical RAM.
21:02:51 <Vorpal> pikhq, so less total than per process?
21:02:51 <Vorpal> what
21:02:55 <Lymee> ^
21:03:05 <Vorpal> also why does the hard limit exist at all?
21:03:26 <elliott> hysterical raisins, presumably
21:03:41 <elliott> imagine if you multiply the amount of ram by a certain value
21:03:48 <elliott> --> overflow
21:04:05 <Vorpal> elliott, why would you multiply it
21:04:14 <Phantom_Hoover> Don't x86-64 processors have hard limits on virtual/physical memory anyway?
21:04:26 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, yes 48 bits.
21:04:35 <elliott> Vorpal: To put it on the same scale as another value?
21:04:36 <Vorpal> and individual processors can have lower limits
21:04:41 <Vorpal> elliott, maybe
21:04:45 <pikhq> 64 TiB is 46 bits, 128 TiB is 47...
21:04:51 <Vorpal> on my laptop:
21:04:53 <Vorpal> address sizes: 36 bits physical, 48 bits virtual
21:05:40 <pikhq> The per-process limit makes a little bit of sense.
21:05:43 <Vorpal> pikhq, hm the limit is not speced to be 48 bits? just that you have to sign extend it right?
21:05:56 <Vorpal> iirc
21:06:05 <pikhq> One hard-codes a 48-bit assumption, and Linux takes half the address space for itself.
21:06:17 <pikhq> I have no idea about the physical RAM limit.
21:06:31 <Vorpal> pikhq, uh it is signed. Remember, on x86_64 the memory is signed
21:06:35 <pikhq> Yes.
21:06:56 <pikhq> Linux uses half the address space.
21:07:06 <Vorpal> kernel lives in the negative half yes
21:07:17 <pikhq> Well, except for somewhat confusing cases on x86_32, where you can get more complicated splits.
21:07:56 <Vorpal> yeah
21:08:02 <Vorpal> pikhq, 3/1 iirc?
21:08:18 -!- boily has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
21:08:18 <pikhq> Yeah, that's one of the splits.
21:08:29 <pikhq> You can also do 2/2 and even 1/3.
21:08:33 <Vorpal> heh
21:08:39 <Vorpal> pikhq, what is the point of those
21:08:44 <pikhq> No idea.
21:08:54 <Vorpal> the user space don't need to address much of the kernel anyway
21:12:09 <pikhq> Apparently the kernel's portion of the address space is the same in all processes.
21:12:17 <ais523> Vorpal: are you the same Vorpal who does updates on speeddemosarchive.com? or is it just a username coincidence?
21:12:26 <ais523> (I'm guessing the second)
21:12:42 <Vorpal> ais523, never even heard of that site
21:12:50 <ais523> so yes
21:12:57 <pikhq> So I suppose in some cases the address split could cause issues.
21:13:04 <ais523> it's a good site, but one you probably wouldn't be interested in
21:13:19 <Vorpal> ais523, what is it about? TAS?
21:13:27 <ais523> unassisted speedruns
21:13:38 <Vorpal> ah
21:13:42 <ais523> it's the unassisted counterpart of TASvideos
21:13:45 <pikhq> Also, the kernel's address space is always mapped to the first x bytes of physical RAM.
21:14:23 <pikhq> Which is apparently *really* useful for munging with devices that are mapped into physical address space.
21:14:37 <Vorpal> pikhq, eh?
21:14:47 <Vorpal> pikhq, kernels can be reallocated. It is a kernel option
21:14:48 <pikhq> Consider, for instance, a graphics card.
21:15:02 <Vorpal> reallocatable kernel
21:15:42 <Vorpal> pikhq, anyway a graphics card tend to be mapped above 1 GB or so
21:16:04 <pikhq> Yes, that changes where it gets loaded. That doesn't change that it assigns the high X bytes of virtual space to the low X bytes of physical space.
21:16:53 <Vorpal> oh
21:16:56 <Vorpal> interesting
21:17:09 <Vorpal> pikhq, why would it do that though
21:17:44 <pikhq> The single largest thing that makes easier is X.
21:18:07 <pikhq> The kernel can just permit X to access the part of that address space that corresponds to the graphics card.
21:18:27 <Vorpal> pikhq, yes it does that iirc
21:18:33 <Vorpal> which is why X needs root
21:18:54 <elliott> <Vorpal> pikhq, kernels can be reallocated. It is a kernel option
21:18:56 <elliott> "reallocated"
21:19:03 <elliott> also
21:19:07 <pikhq> Also, this seems to be the same address space that's used in kernel mode.
21:19:08 <elliott> can I just say that X's architecture
21:19:09 <elliott> makes me sad
21:19:12 <elliott> and I don't like X
21:19:12 <Vorpal> elliott, relocated
21:19:13 <Vorpal> typo
21:19:13 <elliott> and it's a bad thing
21:19:23 <elliott> i would just like to say that and can we all agree
21:19:24 <pikhq> When you do a system call, you change the ring you're in, but not the page table.
21:19:26 <Vorpal> elliott, long live wayland
21:19:29 <Vorpal> or whatever
21:19:29 <elliott> and then also agree that graphics systems needing root is terrible
21:19:34 <pikhq> elliott: Yes, agreed.
21:19:36 <elliott> Vorpal: how about @ :)
21:19:56 <Vorpal> elliott, once you START IMPLEMENTING it,
21:20:02 <Vorpal> then maybe
21:20:14 <elliott> Vorpal: you implement things without figuring them out properly first?
21:20:20 <ais523> is there any way to trick X into starting while it doesn't have root?
21:20:20 <Vorpal> elliott, go figure them out
21:20:29 <ais523> using, say, fbdev as the driver, it wouldn't need one
21:20:38 <Vorpal> ais523, it is suid, remove that suid, see what happens
21:20:43 <shachaf> @slap elliott
21:20:43 <lambdabot> go slap elliott yourself
21:20:43 <elliott> Vorpal: umm, clearly you've never had any actual difficult problems before
21:20:46 <shachaf> @slap elliott
21:20:46 * lambdabot places her fist firmly on elliott's jaw
21:20:48 <elliott> :P
21:20:52 <elliott> shachaf: :'(
21:20:54 <elliott> i've already been stabbed
21:20:57 <elliott> multiple times
21:21:01 <Vorpal> elliott, problems with what?
21:21:03 <elliott> is not my punishment harsh enough
21:21:03 <pikhq> So, it has a *constant* address space map to make it not a royal *pain* to do system calls, and it has constant address space map corresponding to physical space just to make hardware access easier.
21:21:05 <shachaf> @stab elliott
21:21:05 * lambdabot beats up elliott
21:21:08 <elliott> oh
21:21:09 <ais523> Vorpal: you get "permission denied", I think
21:21:21 <elliott> Vorpal: I can't just sit in a corner and suddenly work out all the details of @ by putting raw effort into it :P
21:21:31 <Vorpal> elliott, why not
21:21:44 <elliott> Vorpal: go solve the Riemann hypothesis
21:21:47 <elliott> I'll wait here
21:21:54 <elliott> it should just take a lot of effort, right?
21:22:05 <Vorpal> hm... Done. It is undeciable. Why that is is undecidable.
21:22:07 <pikhq> Oh, yeah, and since that address space map *is* constant, it needs to have physical space mapped in it so that the kernel *itself* can access memory-mapped hardware.
21:22:13 <pikhq> Such as anything DMA.
21:22:22 <elliott> Vorpal: false
21:22:30 <Vorpal> elliott, oh?
21:22:35 <Vorpal> how do you know
21:23:01 <Vorpal> it could be true, but there being no way to prove it.
21:23:10 <elliott> Vorpal: that's not what undecidable means, but I presumed you meant that
21:23:23 <Vorpal> if it was false we could always find a counter example
21:23:31 <elliott> anyway, hmm, it could be true, but I suspect it's not possible for it to be unprovable
21:23:31 <Vorpal> elliott, right, I used the wrong word. Sorry.
21:24:08 <elliott> consider ZFC+RH and ZFC+~RH; take the counterexample from the latter; apply it to the former; former system is proved inconsistent. but then the latter could have no constructive proofs of any such values
21:24:16 <elliott> I'll leave this up to oerjan before I make a fool of myself
21:24:29 <elliott> hey ais523, what's the longest word
21:24:33 <Vorpal> pikhq, heh
21:24:39 <Sgeo> RH?
21:24:51 <ais523> elliott: in what context?
21:25:00 <elliott> ais523: Google Books n-gram data :P
21:25:07 <ais523> I don't know
21:25:08 <elliott> oh, wait, I have the total counts set, I can find out
21:25:15 <elliott> wait, no I can't
21:25:19 <elliott> CakeProphet: what's the longest word in the one-gram set
21:25:19 <Sgeo> Oh, derp, riemann hypothesis
21:26:09 <Sgeo> ...and I would have seen that if I had scrolled up
21:27:11 <elliott> http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/Catalog/CatalogEntry.jsp?catalogId=LDC2006T13
21:27:14 <elliott> (for my own reference)
21:27:26 <elliott> "Sequences that look like urls or email addresses form one token."
21:27:26 <elliott> neat
21:27:33 <elliott> grr, it doesn't say how big the individual files are
21:27:40 <elliott> when uncompressed
21:27:56 <elliott> hmm, I suppose I might want to operate streaming, so that I can pipe gunzip into it
21:27:58 <elliott> rather than mmapping
21:28:01 <elliott> that saves disk overhead
21:29:18 <CakeProphet> elliott: uh, I don't know I haven't looked at it yet.
21:29:55 <elliott> ais523: Vorpal: pikhq: asserts are on even without -g and with optimisation options, right? only NDEBUG has an affect on it
21:29:59 <elliott> s/affect/effect/ I think
21:30:12 <Sgeo> elliott, go serve as the integral
21:31:22 -!- hagb4rd has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
21:31:49 <Vorpal> elliott, yeah
21:32:10 <Vorpal> elliott, where can I get that data btw?
21:32:17 -!- kwertii has joined.
21:32:24 <ais523> elliott: asserts are just macros
21:32:30 <ais523> they know nothing of the compiler
21:32:46 <elliott> Vorpal: http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/datasets for one-to-five-grams of various datasets from books, including year information; http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/Catalog/CatalogEntry.jsp?catalogId=LDC2006T13 for six DVDs worth of internet for $150
21:33:02 <ais523> 5g of datasets wouldn't be very heavy
21:33:09 <elliott> ais523: eh?
21:33:16 <elliott> oh
21:33:26 <ais523> elliott: I wouldn't expect /you/ to take that long to get a joke, even a relatively weak one
21:33:40 <fizzie> elliott: From the Google web data, a random 4-gram sample I just grepped from my logs. When "shit hits the", what it hits is the "fan" in 16721 cases, the "fans" in 257 cases, the "proverbial" in 93 cases (of which 82 are the "proverbial fan"), the "fangs" in 60 cases, the "can" in 51 cases, and the "water" in 42 cases. (And presumably other things with counts <40, or was it <20. Anyway.)
21:33:56 <elliott> ais523: it took me about three seconds :P
21:34:16 <elliott> fizzie: X-D
21:34:17 <ais523> elliott: exactly, you're normally much faster than that
21:34:29 <elliott> fizzie: Just 16721? It's a common expression
21:34:41 <elliott> ais523: I didn't realise g meant weight-gram
21:34:46 <Deewiant> f8+'ua'=*+*
21:34:53 <elliott> ais523: I thought it was another "REASON NOT TO BUY THOSE DVDS"
21:34:58 <elliott> Deewiant: fungify?
21:35:00 <ais523> elliott: oh, no
21:35:05 <Deewiant> Ye
21:35:13 <ais523> that's what fizzie's saying, if the data only has 16721 instances of a proverb that common...
21:35:27 <elliott> gentry: gentry.c:20: process: Assertion `word_len < (sizeof(words[i]) / sizeof((words[i])[0]))' failed.
21:35:28 <elliott> Aborted
21:35:28 <elliott> cool, an actual bug
21:35:31 <elliott> Deewiant: what is amazing about it
21:35:33 <elliott> fizzie: lol
21:35:46 <elliott> Deewiant: And surely xy= is always shorter than either zero or one
21:35:51 <elliott> erm
21:35:52 <elliott> ais523: lol
21:36:42 <Deewiant> elliott: Nothing, I just sometimes fungify largeish numbers
21:36:44 <fizzie> ais523: "shit hits the fan" has "about 770,000 results" in Google entire; I don't know how many trillion words the whole web is, but probably much more than "one", like this dataset has. (Actually direct extrapolation would say the web is 46 trillion words.)
21:36:52 <elliott> Deewiant: Oh, I see
21:36:56 <elliott> Deewiant: But <elliott> Deewiant: And surely xy= is always shorter than either zero or one
21:37:06 <Deewiant> elliott: I don't understand what you mean
21:37:09 <ais523> aren't the number of results in Google searches completely fictional?
21:37:24 <elliott> Deewiant: Maybe = does something other than what I expect
21:37:38 <elliott> fizzie: "About 769,000 results (0.16 seconds)" here.
21:37:40 <fizzie> ais523: Maybe not quite "completely", but quite fictional.
21:37:49 <ais523> moderately fictional
21:38:07 <Deewiant> elliott: The only = there is in '=, which pushes fromEnum '=' on the stack
21:38:08 <ais523> so why is it there? tradition? making people feel warm and fuzzy?
21:38:11 <elliott> Therefore expressions passed to assert() must not contain side-effects since they will not happen when debugging is disabled. For instance:
21:38:11 <elliott> assert(x = gets());
21:38:11 <elliott> will not read a line and not assign to x when debugging is disabled.
21:38:13 <elliott> thanks wikipedia
21:38:16 <elliott> Deewiant: Ah
21:38:25 <elliott> I really like how Wikipedia uses gets as an example, and /uses it wrongly/.
21:38:30 <elliott> I mean, even more wrongly than gets used properly.
21:38:50 <elliott> ais523: latter, I suspect
21:38:52 <elliott> ais523: just like I'm Feeling Lucky
21:39:06 <Vorpal> elliott, correct the wp article
21:39:10 <elliott> "Google Search is the most-used search engine on the World Wide Web,[3] receiving several hundred million queries each day through its various services.[4]"
21:39:11 <elliott> that few?
21:39:13 <Vorpal> anyone can edit after all!
21:39:14 <elliott> I'd expect billions per day
21:39:17 <elliott> Vorpal: cba
21:39:21 <ais523> elliott: no, that makes sense; asserts only run in debug mode, and only in debug mode can you guarantee that gets() doesn't overflow (because you can assume that the dev is typing the input)
21:39:29 <elliott> ais523: gets takes an argument
21:39:29 <fizzie> elliott: Apparently there are 55528776221 bigrams, if I'm reading this irclog right.
21:39:29 <ais523> in production code, clearly you don't want to use gets()
21:39:43 <elliott> fizzie: Number of fivegrams: 1,176,470,663
21:39:51 <ais523> oh wow, it does as well
21:40:00 <Deewiant> "{ +"*+'}8'/"w0)"*+**+*
21:40:08 <elliott> Deewiant: 1,024,908,267,229
21:40:14 <ais523> forgive me for not knowing the API of gets()
21:40:15 <elliott> (that's the number of femtograms)
21:40:17 <ais523> it's not like I ever use it
21:40:20 <elliott> ais523: unacceptable :)
21:40:24 <Deewiant> elliott: 'M'}8'}'D+*+'}9' '{28'{55'@**+**+**+**
21:40:29 <pikhq> You mean to tell me Google has fewer queries per day then there are on the Internet?
21:40:32 <elliott> Deewiant: is that the best you can do?
21:40:32 <pikhq> I call bullshit.
21:40:39 <elliott> pikhq: eh?
21:40:47 <Deewiant> elliott: Define "best"
21:40:53 <pikhq> elliott: There's like a couple billion people on the Internet.
21:40:56 <elliott> Deewiant: Shortest
21:41:10 <Deewiant> Probably not, no
21:41:22 <Deewiant> That's ASCII-restricted too
21:41:23 <Deewiant> I think
21:41:25 <Vorpal> elliott, you use os x sometimes right? I have a question. I have a macbook next to me, it has been in sleep for a while. Every few hours it wakes up and makes a "checking if there is a cd in the drive"-noise. Is that normal?
21:41:27 <elliott> Google flags search results with the message "This site may harm your computer" if the site is known to install malicious software in the background or otherwise surreptitiously. Google does this to protect users against visiting sites that could harm their computers. For approximately 40 minutes on January 31, 2009, all search results were mistakenly classified as malware and could therefore not be cl
21:41:27 <elliott> icked; instead a warning message was displayed and the user was required to enter the requested URL manually. The bug was caused by human error.[30][31][32][33] The URL of "/" (which expands to all URLs) was mistakenly added to the malware patterns file.[31][32]
21:41:29 <elliott> yikes, forty minutes?
21:41:36 <elliott> I wonder how many millions of pounds they lost
21:41:38 <Vorpal> it is an older macbook, white model with large space between keys
21:41:43 <Deewiant> elliott: Latin-1: "MñT"f2+*+'û'6f8+"õ Á"*+**+**
21:41:55 <elliott> Vorpal: That used to happen to me with my iMac, I think.
21:42:04 <elliott> Vorpal: It's probably nothing to worry about, maybe just a bug in the firmware or something.
21:42:09 <Vorpal> elliott, ah.
21:42:14 <elliott> Vorpal: Maybe related to wake-on-LAN, but I doubt it.
21:42:22 <Vorpal> elliott, doubtful. Not even plugged in
21:42:28 <Vorpal> I mean, apart from to power
21:42:33 <Vorpal> elliott, and wlan is off
21:42:48 <pikhq> Yeah, there's apparently about 1 billion Google searches per day, and 2 billion YouTube views.
21:43:01 <elliott> more YouTube views than Google searches?
21:43:02 <elliott> really?
21:43:06 <Vorpal> yeah, what
21:43:06 <pikhq> Yeah.
21:43:14 <elliott> huh
21:43:19 <Vorpal> pikhq, how many youtube searches?
21:43:19 <ais523> that doesn't surprise me at all
21:43:24 <Vorpal> ais523, why
21:43:25 <pikhq> Vorpal: Couldn't find stats.
21:43:34 <elliott> fizzie: What _is_ varikn, anyway.
21:43:41 <elliott> Vorpal: because ais523 doesn't use Google, and assumes everyone is him
21:43:45 <fizzie> elliott: Another Google-data example. Here in "foo [x]" the x is the probability of the word foo in that particular context. "The beatings will continue [0.976] until [0.992] morale [0.944] improves [1]."
21:43:46 <ais523> because you only search when you don't know the page you're aiming for, and when you're on YouTube, you stay there keeping on watching videos continuously
21:43:47 <elliott> except maybe they like watching cute kittens a bit more than him
21:43:48 <elliott> :-P
21:43:58 <ais523> basically, you need to view YouTube to use it
21:44:01 <Vorpal> ais523, I search when I'm too lazy to type the full url
21:44:04 <ais523> whereas you don't need to search to visit a page
21:44:09 <Vorpal> and I don't have it bookmarked
21:44:11 <ais523> Vorpal: so do I, but I search Firefox' history, not in Google
21:44:15 <fizzie> elliott: The project page has a description: http://forge.pascal-network.org/projects/varikn/
21:44:22 <Vorpal> ais523, that doesn't last as long
21:44:32 <elliott> fizzie: Yes, I suddenly understand everything. :p
21:44:37 <ais523> but it's much more accurate to pages I like to visit
21:44:51 <ais523> and so when the page is there - which it nearly always is, by definition - it's much faster
21:45:09 <ais523> as I don't have to work out which of the Google results is the page I wanted (often, the page I want isn't even on the first page of results...)
21:45:23 <fizzie> elliott: Well, it gives you a collection of n-grams of various lengths, such that the collection best models the source text while still being of reasonable size, for some values of "best" and "reasonable".
21:45:57 <elliott> fizzie: Hmm, so fungot actually works on partial data?
21:45:57 <fungot> elliott: my sys admin explains that the official assi c pseudocode: gcc2cygnus.com from:
21:46:04 <elliott> fizzie: Well, obviously it does (fnord), but more than that?
21:46:09 <elliott> gcc2cygnus.com?
21:46:11 <elliott> good domain
21:46:17 <fizzie> Or actually s/source text/texts that are of the same type than the source text, even if they happen to contain words not in the source text/, to be more accurate.
21:46:18 <elliott> oh, must be gcc2@cygnus.com
21:46:20 <elliott> says google

21:47:40 <elliott> remove the american definition of apartheid denial
21:47:42 <Vorpal> he is of course
21:47:46 <fizzie> elliott: And yes, fungot can handle a model where there is, say, a set of 5-grams "a b c d 1", "a b c d 2", "a b c d 3" for the context "a b c d", but only three-grams "c e 1", "c e 2", "c e 3" for the context "c e".

21:48:00 <fungot> elliott: we need a source for the rs. 245 crores from pakistan. gandhi began a fast unto death and made pakistan free of debt of rs. 1 crore to inculcate indian traditional values of peace and non-violence amongst the youth. ( under establishment)
21:48:56 <fizzie> elliott: Well, not exactly. It always uses the longest-length n-grams there actually are recorded in the model; the backoff weights computed by VariKN (that should be used to explicitly use a shorter-length context than the maximum available) are ignored. It's just that it supports a model which doesn't contain the full set of N-grams for some N.
21:49:52 <elliott> fizzie: I am starting to get the kind of feeling Gregor feels when he desperately tells us he doesn't want to become a memory management person.
21:50:11 <elliott> <ais523> ANOTHER REASON NOT TO BUY ANYTHING EVER
21:50:16 <Vorpal> elliott, memory management is fun
21:50:36 <Vorpal> elliott, write that 100 times on a whiteboard.
21:50:47 <ais523> is being in memory management even more soul-destroying than being in regular management?
21:50:55 <fizzie> Then explicitly deallocate the whiteboard.
21:51:41 <Vorpal> ais523, obviously memory management refers to brainwashing yourself to like C
21:51:58 <ais523> C is still the best language for what people typically use C for
21:52:04 <Vorpal> and it is a way to cope with coding C. Managing your memories
21:52:18 <CakeProphet> ais523: like write competitive programming games built over a wireworld CA.
21:52:18 <ais523> it's certainly conceivable that people could come up with a better one, but I'm not sure if it's been accomplished yet
21:52:24 <pikhq> ais523: Um. People use C for far more than what's reasonable.
21:52:29 <elliott> ais523: I don't think you know what people typically use C for
21:52:30 <ais523> pikhq: indeed
21:52:32 <elliott> for instance, application development
21:52:43 <ais523> elliott: but things it's inappropriate for are split between C and other languages
21:52:44 <pikhq> UIs tend to still be in it for GNOME apps.
21:52:49 <ais523> and I wouldn't expect C to be in first place
21:52:49 <Vorpal> elliott, no people use C++ for that
21:52:55 <elliott> ais523: eh?
21:53:07 <pikhq> And otherwise people typically use C++, which is no more appropriate.
21:53:31 <CakeProphet> Erlang is best language of all suitable for all porpoises
21:53:39 <Vorpal> I disagree on that.
21:53:49 <pikhq> Perhaps not as batshit, but still.
21:53:58 <ais523> I would say INTERCAL was equally unsuitable for all purposes, but that's wrong
21:54:02 <ais523> some things it's less bad at than other things
21:54:24 <Vorpal> ais523, is is perfect for bit-interleaving operations
21:54:38 <Vorpal> CakeProphet, erlang is good for some stuff. Mostly non-numbercrunching distributed stuff
21:55:00 <Vorpal> and it is a nice language to code in
21:55:08 <elliott> (gdb) print word_len
21:55:09 <elliott> $1 = <value optimised out>
21:55:11 <elliott> how
21:55:15 <elliott> you just failed an assertion about it
21:55:17 <elliott> how can it be optimised out
21:55:21 <Vorpal> elliott, try -ggdb3
21:55:39 <Vorpal> elliott, anyway it could be in a register
21:55:44 <Vorpal> elliott, oh and -O0
21:55:52 <elliott> -O0 was what iw as trying to avoid
21:55:56 <Vorpal> you need -O0 for any kind of useful variable inspection
21:56:01 <Vorpal> seriously
21:56:02 <Vorpal> sad
21:56:18 <CakeProphet> baaaawww
21:56:25 <elliott> $1 = 16
21:56:27 <elliott> well that's better
21:56:40 <Vorpal> elliott, why were you trying to avoid -O0?
21:56:53 <elliott> Vorpal: dunno :P
21:57:00 <elliott> slow, I guess
21:57:10 <Vorpal> elliott, was it though
21:58:01 <Vorpal> elliott, anyway a sure way to do it, if you HAVE to use -O (seen that on some embedded systems that failed the code for a busy-loop on anything less than -O1, eww) is to write a copy to a static volatile variable
21:59:26 <elliott> 24 This will result in a similarly formatted file "foo_tokens.txt", except most of
21:59:26 <elliott> 25 the punctuation has been replaced with "PFOO" tokens, and each individual token
21:59:26 <elliott> 26 is space-separated. There is still one line per "phrase".
21:59:32 <elliott> fizzie: So were I to say PFOO on IRC... MWAHAHAHAHA

22:05:47 <elliott> ah
22:05:49 <fizzie> The details are in some other bit of the log. It could be that this uses just 4-grams, i.e. 3 words of context, which is a bit on the short side.
22:06:04 <elliott> fizzie: As opposed to five-grams, which will be _so_ much better.

22:13:40 <Vorpal> elliott, yes ftruncate will fill with zeros at the end. Perhaps even sparse on your file system
22:14:01 <Vorpal> elliott, anyway you could just write a zero on the end of the mapped page
22:14:06 <oerjan> you philistines, obviously fizzie is written in pascal.

22:16:18 <elliott> fizzie: Aww, I thought they asked it in that incredibly-specific form.
22:16:38 <fizzie> Well, it was very close. The "realloc-from-the-middle" part was there, and it was wrapped inside a very specific example.
22:16:44 <elliott> Nice.

22:20:43 <Vorpal> oerjan, oh
22:20:59 <Phantom_Hoover> fungot, it was, appropriately, a scratch-related thing IIRC.
22:20:59 <fungot> Phantom_Hoover: you have a great appreciation for the fine arts. you use the hammer and nails. they will come a day when you will be thrust into another stupid wall indent8tion in my desk with the others. no. cold. really cold shit flushed from derse in hopes of retrieving the two packages and the two envelopes which you are now the other... oh. it looks so 8ad!
22:21:01 <fizzie> I think there's a triple-complicity: properties of the model (small data set, high-likelihood loopy structure due to short context); the lack of any sort of backoff that could get it out of the loop; and I think there was also a bona-fide bug in the babbling code.
22:21:15 <fizzie> Though I was under the impression I runtime-patched that last bug out.
22:21:26 <fizzie> I may have not remembered to update the on-disk copy. :p
22:21:38 <elliott> fizzie: You should make it so that the model accounts for the quirks.
22:22:17 <fizzie> Well, even if I add smoothing-via-backoff some day, it'd be easy to "fix" the model so that the backoff weights are zero.
22:23:05 <fizzie> (Also the current disk format has no place for backoff info anyway, so adding it would mean rebuilding all the models, and I don't really know where their sources and the corresponding scripts are any more. Though I guess I could always make a format-converter.)

23:35:56 <elliott> monqy: just backtrack whenever you can't find a word with the right starting letter
23:36:00 <elliott> or if the probabilities get too low for comfort I guess
23:36:01 <Gregor> NLP is hard, but inverse NLP is less so :)

23:39:38 <CakeProphet> you could just randomly generate the parts of speech you want for each word. find words that match randomly, and then use that. if it fails, generate a new sequence of speech parts
23:40:16 <CakeProphet> ...randomly generated by English grammar rules of course.

23:43:17 <ais523> Gregor: but I pasted /nkep/, of course I have to use Spivak
23:43:32 <CakeProphet> !wacro
23:43:32 <EgoBot> FEMBCC
23:43:43 <Gregor> Penis thinks penis can make excuses for Spivak pronouns.
23:43:50 <Gregor> But there is no excuse for Spivak pronouns.
23:44:00 <ais523> in nkep-related contexts, there is
23:44:30 <elliott> Spivak neatly avoids the awkward "themselves" problem that singular they has
23:44:37 <elliott> (in that, "themself" is awkward, and "themselves" is not singular)
23:44:53 <ais523> elliott: Shakespeare used "themself" on a few occasions
23:45:08 <ais523> admittedly, he invented about half the English language, so it's a bit unfortunate that that particular neologism didn't catch on
23:45:23 <elliott> doesn't make it non-awkward :)
23:45:38 <elliott> Spivak has issues as far as pronouncability goes but all the alternatives are worse
23:46:26 <Gregor> I could just use "cloaca" as the neutral pronoun in my biopronouns :P

23:47:31 <elliott> ais523: can I see the other nkep expansion, out of curiosity?
23:47:43 <ais523> [20:52] <Brushy> ais523: Hah, that's an old one, it stands for "No Kiss Except Pleasure Lick With Gordon Powell Last X-mas Goes Inside Of Your Zealot's Jesting Vagina Thankfully Xenu Jokes Not Needlessly Canadian Sasquatch Queen Serena Ceases Valium Nitrodioxide Trading Loathing Belgium's Diabolical Query Reaching Our Minds Yet Eternally Yeasting Verizon Line Has Kansas Jury Goers Turned Endlessly Agonizing Quebecian Network Namer Estephan Quarryman

23:48:07 <ais523> I like yours better
23:48:18 <monqy> is there any proper meaning
23:48:34 <CakeProphet> elliott: "Fenestrated Ensemble" would be an excellent part of the name of a window manager or GUI toolkit.
23:48:49 <Phantom_Hoover> Nay, king. Even permitting legalities, we get past lascivious xenomorphs ghastly indignant. Oh, your zebra jumps — vaults! ­— to xylophones, John, never necessitating cars' sins, quickly saving Carmen valiantly. Not today, legate; Bajoran dentistry quora remind of my youth.

23:49:20 <ais523> did you copy elliott's ending? or was that coincidence?
23:49:42 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh my god I didn't.
23:49:45 <Phantom_Hoover> That...
23:50:17 <Phantom_Hoover> I think it's because jjk isn't terribly easy to work around unless you use a cheap trick like that.

23:50:26 <Phantom_Hoover> Mine was still better.

23:51:08 <elliott_> Bajoran dentistry quora remind of my youth too, Phantom_Hoover.
23:51:29 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott_, the quora are for the number of teeth knocked out with rocks.
23:51:30 <elliott_> Also I swear you've said "jejune" before AT LEAST ONCE.
23:51:59 <elliott_> 23:50:17: <Phantom_Hoover> I think it's because jjk isn't terribly easy to work around unless you use a cheap trick like that.

23:52:09 <elliott_> A STORY IN THREEWORD
23:52:25 <CakeProphet> 3-gram
23:52:32 <Phantom_Hoover> 'Maud!' 'Yes!'
23:52:42 <copumpkin> why do people keep talking about pumpkin seeds in here?
23:52:45 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott_, 'jejune' has not been used on this channel before.
23:52:53 <CakeProphet> !wacro 3 25
23:52:55 <Phantom_Hoover> copumpkin, the glory that is fungot's Homestuck mode.
23:52:56 <fungot> Phantom_Hoover: host. who knocks so hard?
23:53:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Specifically,
23:53:03 <Phantom_Hoover> `quote pumpkin
23:53:06 <HackEgo> 461) <Phantom_Hoover> The wickedest man of all. <Phantom_Hoover> Surpassed only in wickedness by the wicked witches of the west and east. <copumpkin> you talking about me again? <Phantom_Hoover> Yes. <copumpkin> k \ 558) <fungot> Phantom_Hoover: it is a hate so pure and... pumpkin seeds?
23:53:37 <Phantom_Hoover> Hey, if you stick those quotes together you get an even better one.
23:53:56 <ais523> yep
23:54:07 <ais523> copumpkin: do you have a highlight for that?
23:54:19 <copumpkin> yep
23:54:28 <ais523> just "pumpkin", or the whole phrase?
23:54:33 <copumpkin> just pumpkin
23:54:37 <elliott_> <Phantom_Hoover> elliott_, 'jejune' has not been used on this channel before.
23:54:38 <ais523> my highlight on INTERCAL catches me out in here occasionally
23:54:40 <elliott_> IT MUST HAVE BEEN
23:54:45 <ais523> and surprises me by cropping up randomly in other contexts too
23:54:55 <CakeProphet> elliott_: this can only be settled by wget + perl
23:55:03 <CakeProphet> or you know like grep or something.
23:55:07 <elliott_> CakeProphet: Dude, we have rsync logs.
23:55:07 <CakeProphet> but preferably perl.
23:55:19 <ais523> why use wget when you have perl?
23:55:24 <ais523> it's perfectly capable of downloading things by itself
23:55:29 -!- elliott_ has changed nick to elliott.
23:55:34 -!- elliott has quit (Changing host).
23:55:34 -!- elliott has joined.
23:55:38 <CakeProphet> ais523: not as conveniently, BUT YOU HAVE A GOOD POINT
23:55:58 <ais523> more conveniently if you want to mix it in with a Perl script
23:56:08 <ais523> say, if you're only going to process each thing you download once and then discard it
23:56:12 <CakeProphet> Perl is an unstoppable force of nature, perfectly suitable for all sh porpoises.
23:57:13 <Sgeo> And CakeProphet reminds me of a stupid joke I saw once
23:57:31 <ais523> hmm, anyone know a language that beats Perl on library support?
23:57:38 <ais523> I think only really C and Java have a chance, and I'm not sure if either does
23:57:47 <ais523> /possibly/ the .NET languages
23:58:14 <CakeProphet> python's standard library is more complete than Perl without CPAN, I believe.
23:58:59 <elliott> Perl without CPAN isn't very featureful
23:59:11 <elliott> ais523: I would say C easily beats Perl
23:59:50 <ais523> I'm taking CPAN and platform-related equivalents into account, here
23:59:55 <ais523> Perl is not very featureful without CPAN, indeed
