00:01:11 <Ngevd> Oh, that's right,
00:01:14 <Ngevd> I don't go to Kindle
00:01:35 <Ngevd> Kindle is reserved for when I'm, you know, on a Kindle
00:04:37 <Vorpal> Ngevd, try /nick Taneb|Hovercraft or whatever you want
00:04:51 <Ngevd> Nah
00:04:53 <Vorpal> Ngevd, you can renick once you ghosted the dead connection, or once it timed out
00:04:59 <Ngevd> It's Ngevd time now
00:05:05 <Vorpal> Ngevd, come on, you could just copy what I wrote
00:05:45 -!- Ngevd has changed nick to TheAstoundingVan.
00:05:51 <elliott> the astounding van
00:05:56 <Vorpal> no no, it is Ngevd time
00:06:01 <TheAstoundingVan> I didn't realise nicks had a maximum length
00:06:12 <Vorpal> TheAstoundingVan, what was it supposed to be?
00:06:19 <Vorpal> anyway of course there is a max length
00:06:22 <TheAstoundingVan> It should continue TheAstoundingVanDoorn
00:06:26 <monqy> I can't imagine TheAstoundingVan not being the intention
00:06:27 <Vorpal> it is right there in the irc protocol iirc
00:06:33 <TheAstoundingVan> Probably
00:06:46 <Vorpal> indeed your current nick is quite nice
00:06:55 <Vorpal> except it moved the nick column out quite a bit
00:06:58 <Vorpal> that is annoying
00:07:05 <Vorpal> (I have xchat style nick column)
00:07:21 <TheAstoundingVan> I have the Windows port of XChat
00:07:28 <TheAstoundingVan> I do not remember why I am using Windows
00:07:31 <Vorpal> (because, frankly it is a lot easier to read irc that way IMO)
00:07:47 <TheAstoundingVan> Oh, that thing on the left
00:07:54 <TheAstoundingVan> I was thinking of the one on the right
00:08:24 <Vorpal> TheAstoundingVan, I'm on mixed atm. Lets see, this is on ubuntu, a freebsd box is running on the other side of the room, and my desktop is on windows 7 atm waiting for bloody stupid steam to decide it doesn't need to install .NET for the fourth time.
00:08:46 <TheAstoundingVan> I have but one computer
00:08:53 <Vorpal> ah
00:09:08 <TheAstoundingVan> Well, one computer that I could feasibly chat on IRC with that is definitely in my possession
00:09:32 <Vorpal> I see
00:09:46 <TheAstoundingVan> My Kindle actually belongs to my dad
00:09:58 <TheAstoundingVan> And the family computer is... the family computer
00:10:08 <TheAstoundingVan> My brother's laptop is my brother's
00:10:25 <Vorpal> I see
00:10:28 <TheAstoundingVan> The 98SE computer doesn't have an internet connection
00:10:35 <Vorpal> the what....
00:10:38 <TheAstoundingVan> The Wii is shared between me and my brother
00:10:39 <Vorpal> you got to be kidding
00:10:42 <TheAstoundingVan> Windows 98SE
00:10:47 <Vorpal> ....
00:10:47 <Vorpal> what
00:11:14 <TheAstoundingVan> Seriously
00:11:21 <TheAstoundingVan> It's not turned on because it is rather loud
00:11:27 <TheAstoundingVan> I play Lego Loco on it mainly
00:11:29 <elliott> TheAstoundingVan: Upgrade it to 95.
00:12:39 <TheAstoundingVan> I don't think 95 can run Lego Loco
00:12:56 <TheAstoundingVan> It's also got Rollercoaster Tycoon
00:13:34 <Vorpal> heh
00:14:45 <elliott> god
00:14:49 <elliott> why don't i have rollercoaster tycoon
00:14:51 <elliott> does it work in wine
00:15:05 <elliott> looks like "sort of"
00:15:07 <TheAstoundingVan> I don't know
00:15:42 <TheAstoundingVan> Do you have Lego Loco?
00:16:27 <Vorpal> elliott, it is old enough to run okay in qemu I think...
00:16:33 <elliott> prolly
00:16:35 <Vorpal> so even if it doesn't work in wine
00:16:36 <elliott> i could just use virtualbox
00:16:50 <TheAstoundingVan> It was written almost entirely in assembly
00:16:54 <Vorpal> elliott, that too
00:20:02 <elliott> -frandom-seed=string
00:20:02 <elliott> This option provides a seed that GCC uses when it would otherwise
00:20:02 <elliott> use random numbers. It is used to generate certain symbol names
00:20:02 <elliott> that have to be different in every compiled file.
00:20:03 <elliott> Wait, seriously?
00:20:10 <elliott> gcc relies on random numbers not repeating over different runs?
00:20:13 <elliott> whoo boy
00:20:41 <TheAstoundingVan> That should cause some problems
00:20:53 <TheAstoundingVan> Unless the RNG is awful
00:21:10 <elliott> Eh?
00:21:23 <TheAstoundingVan> It could be "seed + 1"
00:21:47 <TheAstoundingVan> Also, lego Loco doesn't work on Wine
00:21:51 <TheAstoundingVan> I sad
00:21:57 <TheAstoundingVan> I very sobber
00:23:42 <TheAstoundingVan> How am I going to get a simultaneous Lego, sport, and Linux fix now!
00:24:25 <TheAstoundingVan> NETHER DOES LEGO ALPHA TEAM :'(
00:24:38 <TheAstoundingVan> All my Lego games, worthless!
00:24:57 <TheAstoundingVan> I'll have to play with actual Lego now!
00:25:31 <elliott> wait.
00:25:37 <elliott> TheAstoundingVan: other people played lego alpha team?
00:25:53 <elliott> just... how

00:47:29 <noqmy> moqny, I have created more esolangs than you
00:47:34 <noqmy> How did this happen
00:47:45 <noqmy> Did this happen
00:47:50 <moqny> i have created more than is on my wiki page, i believe
00:48:00 <noqmy> Okay
00:49:30 <monqy> I have not designed many esolangs
00:50:13 <noqmy> That's interesting
00:50:31 <monqy> i have not designed many esolangs shame
00:50:32 <monqy> help
00:51:28 <monqy> hm, that might be a bit hard to parse
00:51:34 <monqy> properly, at least
00:52:06 <noqmy> Luigi is a language which only I believe to be Turing-complete
00:52:38 <nomqy> i shall now proceed to design ~ 40310 esolangs at once
00:52:43 <monqy> have you proven this
00:52:47 <monqy> these
00:52:51 <nomqy> > permutations "+-<>[].,"
00:52:51 <monqy> its turing completeness
00:52:52 <lambdabot> ["+-<>[].,","-+<>[].,","<-+>[].,","-<+>[].,","<+->[].,","+<->[].,","><-+[]....
00:52:52 <monqy> and
00:52:59 <noqmy> monqy, twice
00:53:03 <monqy> people other than you not believing in its turing completenes
00:53:05 <noqmy> Apparently neither of them count
00:53:05 <monqy> have you proven that
00:53:08 <monqy> oh no
00:53:15 <noqmy> Neither of the other people count
00:53:18 <monqy> did you bungle the proofs or is everyone just a jerk
00:53:28 <moqny> he bungled the proofs
00:53:29 <noqmy> I bungled the proofs
00:53:40 <monqy> bungle, a good word
00:53:41 <noqmy> I translated non-turing complete turing machines
00:53:50 <monqy> ahh
00:54:03 <noqmy> I can translate arbitrary turing machines to Luigi, but can't be bothered with long ones
00:54:16 <noqmy> With lots of states
00:54:27 <monqy> automation reasons
00:54:47 <monqy> if you can write a sound algorithm to perform the reduction, who needs manual translation?
00:54:54 <noqmy> If someone finds or creates a notation for expressing Turing-Machines, I will do so
00:55:07 <nomqy> that's why i post general translators instead
00:55:25 <noqmy> I did that for Nandypants and Noryshorts
00:55:31 <noqmy> Which were my first published esolangs
00:55:39 <monqy> lambda calculus (laughs)
00:55:43 <monqy> sk calculus (laughs)
00:55:46 <monqy> brainfuck (laughs)
00:55:49 <moqny> <noqmy> I can translate arbitrary turing machines to Luigi, but can't be bothered with long ones
00:55:58 <moqny> did you actually prove every tm can be translated though
00:56:07 <noqmy> No, but I am able to translate any one
00:56:15 <monqy> good proof
00:56:17 <noqmy> I just haven't bothered proving it
00:56:57 <moqny> proof by i hope taneb doesn't die
00:58:08 <noqmy> It's simple really
00:59:13 <noqmy> But annoyingly hard to describe
00:59:24 <monqy> oh?
00:59:53 <noqmy> For each cell, you put an "N" followed by a number representing its colour
01:00:24 <noqmy> Except for the one with the poor sod in the box, in which you put a letter representing the state of the poor sod in a box instead of the "N"
01:01:06 <noqmy> Then you put an expand left marker at the left end of the tape and an expand right marker at the right end of the tape
01:01:35 <noqmy> These can be any characters that aren't a semicolon or used to represent a pen state or a cell colour
01:01:44 <noqmy> That is the initial tape
01:02:30 <noqmy> Then you put ";L;LN0;R;N0R;", assuming L and R are the expand markers
01:02:48 <noqmy> And 0 is the default colour
01:03:05 <noqmy> Now comes the tedious bit
01:03:19 <noqmy> For each rule, first see if it moves left or right

01:52:13 <zzo38> I figured out how to use Astrolog to compute the date of Chinese New Year.
01:54:30 <zzo38> It is simple to do by using the Ephemeris chart and restricting everything except the Sun and Moon.
01:54:50 <zzo38> It is most likely to occur in January or February.
01:55:44 <zzo38> So that is the date you would look firts.
01:55:47 <zzo38> s/firts/first/
01:56:12 <zzo38> The longitude for Chinese would be 120:00E
02:04:51 <pikhq> Makes sense that that'd work.
02:05:13 <pikhq> I mean, Chinese holidays are on their old, lunar calendar.
02:07:53 <zzo38> Yes; it is the new moon before the sun reaches 330 degrees (also called Pisces). On the Ephemeris calendar you can see the red line for Sun and blue line for Moon (by default there are many more, but you can turn off whatever you want to omit). When the red and blue line cross is the new moon. You can pause animation and use !@#$%^&*( and -+ to advance the time. And then look the red line is to the left of the 330 degrees point, because it will
02:08:59 <nomqy> ... because it will
02:09:06 -!- nomqy has changed nick to oerjan.
02:09:35 <zzo38> ... because it will then reach that point in a few days or a month or so.
02:10:44 <zzo38> (Important Note: This "Pisces" has nothing to do with the constellation of the same name; in this context, "Pisces" is just another name for 330 degrees. I prefer to work directly in degrees.)
02:48:07 <moqny> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blissiness
02:48:11 <moqny> From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
02:48:11 <moqny> Blissiness is created with bliss and busy with makes blissiness. It is now the mark into internet for the websitecreator, former librarian:) .
02:48:11 <moqny> Blissiness rooted in bliss meaning not excited not the other side of excited, just in the neutral midst. Blissiness rooted in being busy and disappearing in, there is no doer and object, just a verb like there is only "singing", 'doing', 'creating' and so on '...... ing'. A realized way being without ego, just clear consciousness itsself, not the content of it thats something else. A realized one has no ego left and abide as pure consciousness. Its
02:48:12 <moqny> hard to tell, explain, just one knows as experience or not. The easiest way to explain is that one in the most difficult situations experience to be without ego just listening as pure consciousness with no interferention of mind itsself: sure this is not easy. Many realized let see that it happen in the world today.

04:03:32 <zzo38> How common are golf balls with plutonium?
04:03:59 <oerjan> well the di- in divorce apparently comes from a preposition meaning apart, not two, so i think it would be a portmanteau
04:04:20 <zzo38> OK.
04:05:30 <oerjan> i suspect they are very rare.
04:05:46 <oerjan> why would you want an extremely heavy golf ball, anyhow.

04:08:32 <CakeProphet> zzo38: I think that's called suicide.
04:09:33 <zzo38> Yes, I suppose so. But someone was trying to write something else, probably to make a joke
04:12:06 <oerjan> now i'm reminded of that disembodied spirit in H2G2
04:12:16 <CakeProphet> zzo38: someone else?
04:12:24 <oerjan> which apparently had done _just_ that
04:23:11 <moqny> i loved that guy
04:33:04 -!- ive has quit (Quit: leaving).
04:40:57 <zzo38> oerjan: Yes it was Jyte claims I was looking at, I think.
04:42:34 <zzo38> What if you played Napoleon with aces low? I think that would affect the game a lot; while most games are unaffected by making aces low (as long as it is decided before the cards are dealt, that is).
04:43:05 <quintopia> whatis napoleon
04:43:31 <zzo38> A card game for five players.
04:44:15 <oerjan> some games have aces both high and low
04:45:02 <zzo38> Yes, some do.
04:45:36 <zzo38> But in trick taking games, aces are usually high only, and changing the rules such that aces are low won't affect anything.
04:48:01 <oerjan> yes, if only the order of ranks matters, then it's just a simple permutation
04:50:40 <zzo38> But Napoleon has some unusual rules, such as: the ace of spades beats everything, if five cards of the same suit are played then the two wins (if there is a two), you earn a point for a TJQKA of each suit (and if you collect all 20 without bidding 20, you lose due to the Siberian rule), etc
04:53:05 <zzo38> Actually, it is your team's cards collcted that count; the team is selected by a card the declarer names, whoever holds that card is the declarer's partner, but nobody else knows who it is until the named card is played (it is possible for the declarer to name a card he holds, playing alone, and earning more points at the end)
04:59:53 <zzo38> Have you ever played these kind of card game?
05:01:13 <quintopia> ive heard of a similar thing
05:16:11 <zzo38> If I make the program based on Swiss Ephemeris (not soon, though; probably later) what is it should be called????????????????????????????????
05:16:16 <moqny> q
05:21:10 <quintopia> i agree with misspelled monqy
05:21:19 <quintopia> q is an excellent name
05:21:56 <zzo38> Just q by itself?
05:22:30 <quintopia> yes
05:22:46 <quintopia> i dont think the name has been taken
05:23:14 <zzo38> I still disagree however
05:24:38 <quintopia> you asked for suggestions. you arent obligated to take them
05:24:47 <zzo38> OK
05:51:52 <zzo38> You try write such a program.
05:56:08 <moqny> no
05:56:41 <zzo38> OK
05:58:37 <coppro> hmm I could go to bed

06:15:20 <moqny> Vorpal: tup update btw, dunno if you're subscribed to tup-users
06:15:47 <Vorpal> moqny, no I didn't. Doesn't affect the arch package, it is a -git package.
06:16:05 <Vorpal> So unless git repo url or build/install steps change it doesn't really need changing
06:16:08 <moqny> no I "didn't"? anyway I know that, I was just saying you should reinstall it
06:16:09 <zzo38> Another fictitious object I want to include is the "ecclesiastical moon".
06:16:27 <Vorpal> moqny, "no I didn't subscribe to that list"

06:21:39 <zzo38> Swiss Ephemeris allows defining fictitious objects in external files. By default it includes the Uranians although you can add stuff.
06:22:51 <coppro> wow
06:23:29 <zzo38> You can add planets to the solar system as well as moons to the Earth.
06:24:01 <oerjan> moqny: sure they care, how would they otherwise know when to collect easter eggs?

09:17:02 <augur> oerjan: can i get judgments?
09:17:30 <oerjan> *sigh*, ok then
09:17:37 <augur> just a few!
09:17:42 <augur> first can you translate John has spoken with the boys, and Susan has spoken with the girls
09:18:06 <oerjan> John har snakket med guttene, og Susan har snakket med jentene
09:19:10 <augur> ahhhh no determiner!
09:19:13 <oklopol> seems you're still doing the same thing
09:19:15 <augur> ok how about
09:19:30 <augur> John has spoken with every boy and Susan has spoken with every girl
09:19:37 <augur> oklopol: same stuff, but different specifics :p
09:19:53 * oklopol predicts exact same word order
09:19:56 <oerjan> John har snakket med hver gutt og Susan har snakket med hver jente
09:20:12 <oklopol> did not expect them to align almost perfectly
09:20:21 <oerjan> augur: you can force a determiner on definite nouns by adding an adjective, btw.
09:20:25 <Ngevd> Ionus pueroris dixit, et Susanna puellis
09:20:39 <augur> oerjan: i see
09:20:40 <augur> interesting
09:20:58 <Ngevd> Ionus omnis pueroris dixit, et Susanna omnis puellis
09:21:16 <Ngevd> s/pueroris/pueris/
09:21:23 <augur> oerjan: good or bad: John har snakket med hver gutt og Susan har med hver jente
09:21:36 <oklopol> augur: that was the old stuff
09:21:39 <oerjan> heh i expected precisely that one from you :P
09:21:41 <augur> oklopol: ey?
09:21:44 <augur> oerjan: :)
09:21:47 <oerjan> somewhat bad
09:21:55 <oklopol> augur: basically exactly what oerjan just said
09:22:01 <oerjan> "har med" is an idiom meaning something else, too
09:22:08 <augur> ok and without "har"?
09:22:12 <augur> in the right side
09:22:16 <oerjan> then it's ok
09:22:26 <augur> ok, so you speak like i need to you
09:22:32 <augur> ok lets get to the real questions :)
09:22:43 <augur> (yay calibration)
09:23:02 <augur> John har snakket med hver gutt og Susan hver jente
09:23:32 <oerjan> ok, mostly
09:23:41 <augur> to mean the same as "John har snakket med hver gutt og Susan har snakket med hver jente" ?
09:23:43 <oklopol> i'm just gonna watch this and leave just before i'm needed (unless one was enough)
09:23:49 <oerjan> yes
09:23:54 <augur> ok :)
09:24:20 <augur> John har snakket med hver gutt og Susan med jente
09:24:25 <oerjan> no.
09:25:19 <augur> last one
09:25:24 <augur> John har snakket med hver gutt og Susan jente
09:25:37 <oerjan> still awful
09:25:41 <augur> thank you sir!
09:25:51 <oerjan> yw
09:25:53 <augur> thank you for being a perfect speaker of norwegian :D
09:26:23 <augur> oklopol: you willing? :x
09:26:55 <oklopol> you should probably talk to Deewiant or fizzie, i tend to find everything correct
09:26:59 <Ngevd> That reminds me of something I said once, augur
09:27:06 <Ngevd> "I need someone who's willing."
09:27:06 <augur> oklopol: :P
09:27:12 <augur> i think fizzie was my last informant anyway
09:27:21 <augur> but i think you gave me good judgments too, oklopol!
09:27:52 <oklopol> :o
09:27:54 <oklopol> cool stuff
09:27:58 <oerjan> oklopol thinks äkkyllä sitä toikolassa sounds correct
09:27:59 <oklopol> but the real reason i have to go is
09:28:01 <oklopol> i have to go
09:28:09 <augur> oklopol: aww ok
09:28:16 * augur rapes oklopol farewell
09:28:23 <oklopol> augur: kky is not a word i know
09:28:49 <oklopol> toikola is obviously a place, that means to hit someone with an kky in toivola
09:28:59 <oerjan> yay
09:29:10 <oklopol> erm oerjan
09:29:12 <oerjan> probably painful
09:31:47 <oklopol> the interesting part is where the allative form of kky is kkyll, it would usually be kyll
09:33:01 <oklopol> i have a hunch they do that in some dialect here
09:33:12 <oerjan> i haven't quite got those consonant modifications pat down yet.
09:33:14 <oklopol> i can't really speak in any dialect
09:33:55 <oklopol> except for using two words that are rare outside turku which i haven't been able to get rid of
09:34:05 <oerjan> although i actually had this sort of hunch the kk was wrong there
09:34:23 <augur> oerjan: wanna give my paper draft a read through, up to but not including section 3? :D
09:34:31 <oerjan> no.
09:34:34 <augur> :(

09:34:49 <oklopol> bye

10:11:53 <Ngevd> If it is possible to write a quine in Brook, Brook is more computationally powerful than a linear-bounded automaton
10:12:03 <Ngevd> ^^^ Taneb's conjecture
10:13:24 <oerjan> i don't know if the conclusion is true, but i don't think that's a sound argument...
10:20:20 <Ngevd> It is clear that the computational power of Brook is at least that of a Linear Bounded Automaton
10:20:44 <Ngevd> As indeed it is, if one discounts the commands 'c' and 'C'
10:27:36 <Ngevd> However, with the commands 'c' and 'C', if a quine is possible an infinite loop is possible
10:28:17 <Ngevd> Not the greatest of arguments, I'll admit

10:33:26 <oerjan> sounds better
10:36:17 <Ngevd> I just put my surname into Wolfram Alpha, because I'm bored

10:36:48 <Ngevd> Which are both place names
10:38:02 <Ngevd> I got a better result than my friend's surname
10:38:07 <Ngevd> Which redirects to "Horse"

10:41:09 <Ngevd> :P

10:50:22 <fizzie> "Notable people born in Kalajoki: (none known)"
10:50:25 <fizzie> The most useful box.
10:50:39 <oerjan> fizzie: are your ancestors from there?

10:54:15 <fizzie> "Other tips for using Wolfram|Alpha: You can only get answers about objective facts. Try "highest mountain", not "most beautiful painting".

10:55:00 <fizzie> "Only what is known is known to Wolfram|Alpha
10:55:01 <fizzie> Ask "how many men in Mauritania", not "how many monsters in Loch Ness""
10:55:16 <Phantom_Hoover> fizzie, surely the most beautiful painting is one of Stephen Wolfram.
10:55:55 <fizzie> So I ask the latter. "Input interpretation: How many Loch Ness monsters are there?" "Result: 0 (For the most part, the scientific community considers evidence of the existence of such creatures to be a combination of misidentification and deliberate hoaxes.)"
10:58:51 <fizzie> You can type in "edge detect Abraham Lincoln image with radius 7" into W|A, and it will do input interpretation: EdgeDetect[ [Abraham Lincoln | Image], 7 (radius) ] and give the resulting image.
11:00:44 <fizzie> OTOH, if you ask it to "edge detect Abraham Lincoln" and don't mention the image, it will compare Abraham Lincoln and Edge, the wrestler.
11:01:18 <Ngevd> Not Edge, the U2 member?
11:01:20 <Ngevd> Dissapointing
11:02:11 <oerjan> indeed.

11:03:04 <fizzie> Ngevd: If you ask it to "edge detect the edge image", it will edge-detect an image of the U2 guitarist.

18:57:37 <Phantom_Hoover> 255 million... how... what...
18:57:41 <elliott\unfoog> also, /dev/null/nethack makes less than zero sense, as a name
18:57:50 <ais523\unfoog> elliott\unfoog: indeed, I didn't name it
18:57:55 <elliott\unfoog> Phantom_Hoover: It's thigh massage video!
19:10:40 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott\unfoog, the worldwide interest in thigh massage is not that high!
19:10:52 <elliott\unfoog> Phantom_Hoover: Wow, I've been doing it all wrong.
19:10:56 <elliott\unfoog> Life, that is.
19:10:59 <elliott\unfoog> I was completely unaware.
19:11:09 <elliott\unfoog> Phantom_Hoover: Anyway, it's not just thigh massage.
19:11:12 <elliott\unfoog> It's thigh massage VIDEO.

19:28:07 <elliott\unfoog> Does anyone know a decent x86 emulator for people without fancy virtualising CPUs that doesn't taint your kernel with TAINT_CRAP like VirtualBox does

19:37:09 <elliott\unfoog> <elliott\unfoog> fuck
19:37:30 <elliott\unfoog> I have determined that this nick has some kind of special power which stops me from being kicked :P
19:37:30 <ais523\unfoog> surely having a misleading nick isn't a channel offence, but a server offence?
19:37:46 <elliott\unfoog> Ooh, maybe I can get K-lined over it?? :P
19:38:38 <ais523\unfoog> I've just sent a verbal patch for a /dev/null bug; seems krystal had added field to a structure /after/ the struct-hack field
19:38:51 <ais523\unfoog> which is one of the weirder mistakes to make in C that I've seen
19:39:10 -!- ive has quit (Quit: leaving).
19:39:59 <elliott\unfoog> ais523\unfoog: struct-hack field?
19:40:14 <ais523\unfoog> elliott\unfoog: you know the struct-hack, right?
19:40:26 <ais523\unfoog> you put a length-0/length-1/length-MAXINT/length-nullstring array at the end of a struct
19:40:26 <elliott\unfoog> nope :) well I vaguely recall /something/
19:40:30 <elliott\unfoog> oh, right
19:40:31 <ais523\unfoog> then allocate it to the size you actually want
19:40:44 <ais523\unfoog> adding fields after that one is obviously not going to work very well
19:40:45 <elliott\unfoog> (length-nullstring is C99 and isn't a hack)
19:40:48 <ais523\unfoog> indeed
19:40:48 <elliott\unfoog> (it's officially supported)
19:40:55 <ais523\unfoog> but "the struct hack" is the name for the technique
19:41:01 <ais523\unfoog> C99's length-nullstring is just legalizing it
19:41:25 <ais523\unfoog> length-0 is GNU; length-MAXINT I don't believe anyone actually uses but it's been suggested that it fits the letter of the standard better than length-1
19:41:26 <elliott\unfoog> well, I disagree :P but ok
19:41:37 <elliott\unfoog> if you do
19:41:43 <elliott\unfoog> int main(){int foo[MAXINT];}
19:41:47 <elliott\unfoog> it actually internal-errors gcc
19:43:10 <ais523\unfoog> really?
19:43:13 <ais523\unfoog> that's hilarious
19:43:18 <ais523\unfoog> also, it's INT_MAX
19:43:42 <elliott\unfoog> you said MAXINT :P
19:43:49 <elliott\unfoog> but yeah, gcc does not like too-big arrays on the stack.
19:44:02 <ais523\unfoog> it's called MAXINT except in C

19:46:12 <elliott\unfoog> prseumably somebody noticed
19:46:32 <ais523\unfoog> yep, the error message looks a lot like they're specifically checking for implausibly large arrays

20:15:35 <monqy> egg
20:16:11 <monqy> btw what does ghost vomit look like...
20:16:34 <oklopol> well have you ever seen an egg that's almost coagulated but not quite?
20:17:01 <monqy> apparently ghost vomit is a band name
20:17:04 <elliott> :D
20:17:11 <elliott> monqy: what

20:35:41 <Vorpal> <elliott> Vorpal: You're wrong btw <-- wrt what?
20:35:55 <elliott> Vorpal: wrt /usr/bin/env being a problem
20:35:56 <monqy> of what use are touches
20:36:17 <Vorpal> elliott, oh? Well seeing stuff like #!/usr/bin/env perl isn't all that uncommon
20:36:18 <oklopol> touching is very important
20:36:34 <Vorpal> elliott, mostly because perl is in /usr/local/bin on freebsd for example
20:36:37 <elliott> Vorpal: indeed, and making it work does not at all rely on having a /usr/bin/env file
20:36:46 <Vorpal> oh?
20:36:55 <Vorpal> I guess #!perl might work, no idea
20:37:03 <elliott> binfmt_misc -> add magic "#!/usr/bin/env"
20:37:07 <elliott> and magic "#! /usr/bin/env"
20:37:09 <Vorpal> ah right
20:37:13 <elliott> write trivial program to read executable name after it, execute from path
20:37:14 <elliott> job done
20:37:28 <Vorpal> elliott, why didn't they do this for /bin/sh then btw in nixos?
20:37:37 <elliott> presumably they just didn't think of it
20:37:40 <Vorpal> heh
20:37:56 <elliott> Vorpal: although having a real /bin/sh is useful
20:37:59 <elliott> so you can do init=/bin/sh
20:38:02 <Vorpal> well yeah
20:38:12 <elliott> but you could just have that on the initramfs?
20:38:14 <Vorpal> elliott, #!/bin/bash is fairly common too
20:38:15 <elliott> and not on the real fs
20:38:19 <elliott> Vorpal: yeah but that's a bug
20:38:26 <elliott> actually /bin/sh is a bug too but ubiquitous, so
20:38:26 <Vorpal> elliott, not if the script is bash specific
20:38:31 <elliott> Vorpal: no
20:38:32 <elliott> it's a bug
20:38:35 <Vorpal> elliott, so what should it do instead
20:38:36 <elliott> #!/usr/bin/env bash is not a bug
20:38:38 <elliott> #!/bin/bash is a bug

20:38:41 <Vorpal> heh
20:38:52 <elliott> Vorpal: I believe bash is in /usr/bin in debian/ubuntu
20:39:07 <elliott> I guess /bin/sh is OK because /usr might not exist yet
20:39:09 <Vorpal> elliott, well afaik /usr/bin/env is not handled on nixos
20:39:12 <elliott> but /bin/bash isn't

20:39:18 <elliott> Vorpal: that's a nixos bug
20:39:29 <Vorpal> elliott, go suggest your solution to them
20:39:43 <elliott> nah, i'd prefer making my own thing instead, they suck
20:39:53 <Vorpal> elliott, because of the c++ thingy? yeah
20:40:14 <elliott> yes; also every other way in which it differs from kitten
20:40:34 <Vorpal> elliott, like actually being available today?
20:40:41 <elliott> yes
20:41:54 <elliott> I wonder how hard writing a binfmt is

20:44:09 <elliott> what the fuck is "command"

21:02:32 <ais523\unfoog> thanks
21:02:32 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, what is up with the \unfoog? I saw elliott having that a while ago
21:02:38 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: elliott was lying
21:02:40 <elliott> :-D
21:02:41 <ais523\unfoog> it's a NetHack tournament clan
21:02:48 <Vorpal> ah I see
21:02:50 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: I can use whatever nick I want :{
21:02:55 <ais523\unfoog> I'd mention its channel, but it's German-speaking
21:03:16 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, so is there a major nethack tournament atm?
21:03:24 <elliott> yes
21:03:30 <Vorpal> which one?
21:03:44 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: /dev/null/nethack
21:03:45 <elliott> /dev/null/nethack
21:03:50 <Vorpal> ah...
21:03:51 <ais523\unfoog> /the/ NetHack tournament
21:03:56 <Vorpal> I know
21:04:04 <Vorpal> I just didn't remember what time of year it usually ran at
21:04:12 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, also how do clans even make sense for nethack?
21:04:26 <ais523\unfoog> just a collection of individual players
21:04:31 <ais523\unfoog> it's mostly to make a trashtalk opportunity
21:04:34 <Vorpal> ah
21:04:41 <ais523\unfoog> clan EIT sucks, etc
21:04:48 <Vorpal> heh
21:04:55 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, so anyone ascended yet this year?
21:05:05 <Vorpal> (and when did it start)
21:05:21 <ais523\unfoog> it starts in a few hours
21:05:30 <ais523\unfoog> [21:04] <ais523\unfoog> &time
21:05:31 <Vorpal> ah, quite hard to have ascended then already
21:05:31 <ais523\unfoog> [21:04] <oracle\devnull> The time remaining until the 2011 Tournament begins is '00-00-00:09-55-10'
21:05:38 <ais523\unfoog> about 10 hours
21:05:44 <Vorpal> what a strange date format that is...
21:05:48 * elliott ascends ahead of time
21:05:48 <ais523\unfoog> yep, indeed
21:06:03 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: More importantly, what an odd bot prefi.
21:06:04 <elliott> x.
21:06:21 <Vorpal> heh
21:08:11 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, the oracle bot is not in #nethack, where is it?
21:08:15 <ais523\unfoog> wow, it feels weird to be making directories from a Perl script
21:08:17 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: #devnull_nethack
21:08:20 <Vorpal> aha
21:08:28 <ais523\unfoog> the channel that's really quiet most of the year
21:08:32 <elliott> <ais523\unfoog> wow, it feels weird to be making directories from a Perl script
21:08:33 <elliott> wat
21:08:38 <ais523\unfoog> but moderately active in October and really active in November
21:08:51 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: basically, I'm trying to run a script I ran last year
21:09:11 <ais523\unfoog> but the input format is different, being a gmail account rather than a tarball containing a directory per student
21:09:21 <ais523\unfoog> so I'm doing it mathematician-style, and reducing it to a problem I've already solved ;)
21:09:49 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, well, it is last October today.
21:10:12 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: yes, and the tournament lasts all November, in the wrong timezone
21:10:30 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, which one do they use?
21:10:44 <ais523\unfoog> one of the US ones
21:10:50 <ais523\unfoog> whichever one makes it start in 9 hours 50 minutes
21:10:54 <Vorpal> anyway isn't US going back from DST like in a few weeks? Or did it do it a few weeks ago?
21:11:19 <ais523\unfoog> hmm, in which we discover that the tournament setup scripts only work on openBSD 4.8
21:11:24 <elliott> I feel like now is a good time to say: Fuck DST.
21:11:26 <ais523\unfoog> that would explain why there's such a high density of BSD servers there
21:11:28 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, ... ouch
21:11:36 <Vorpal> I... how?
21:11:43 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: 4.8 is pretty recent...
21:11:45 <ais523\unfoog> well, they're all VMs anyway
21:11:55 <elliott> they rewrote them a year ago and didn't make them portable?
21:11:58 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: apparently they were updated from last year, when they worked on 4.6 specifically
21:12:02 <elliott> heh
21:12:12 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: ...which was a year before 4.,8
21:12:16 <elliott> do they just fix them every year? :P
21:12:41 <ais523\unfoog> I think so
21:12:46 <ais523\unfoog> this is /dev/null we're talking about
21:12:57 <ais523\unfoog> you stop being incredulous after a while
21:13:03 <ais523\unfoog> and just assume the correct answer is the least sensible one
21:13:34 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, I really want to see these scripts now. Are they public?
21:13:41 <ais523\unfoog> oh dear I'm going to get quoted again, aren't I?
21:13:47 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: no; the game modifications are, but the scripts aren't
21:13:51 <Vorpal> ah
21:13:54 <ais523\unfoog> I think just because krystal is too lazy to put them online
21:13:58 <Vorpal> heh
21:14:11 <Vorpal> also if it was me, I wouldn't want to put such a broken script online
21:14:28 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, what modifications are used btw? menucolour and so on I presume?
21:14:34 <elliott> http://nethack.devnull.net/bragging/index.php
21:14:37 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: pro web serving
21:15:03 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: oh, that link?
21:15:11 <ais523\unfoog> it's been broken in various random ways for about three years now, not always consistent ones
21:15:18 <Vorpal> heh
21:15:22 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: it's showing phpbb3 source code
21:15:23 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, and he hasn't fixed it?
21:15:27 <ais523\unfoog> haha, I haven't seen /that/ one before
21:15:30 <ais523\unfoog> I just clicked the link
21:15:37 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, report the bug?
21:15:43 <elliott> AND ug.user_id = ' . $user->data['user_id'] . '
21:15:48 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: not a high priority right now…
21:15:52 <Vorpal> well okay
21:15:54 <elliott> phpbb, you so reassuring.
21:15:57 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: it's not SQL injection, because it's plain-text
21:16:12 <ais523\unfoog> even if it /looks/ like PHP, nothing's actually executing it
21:16:12 <Vorpal> uh
21:16:13 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: you're implying they use parametrised queries in every case except this
21:16:13 <Deewiant> At least config.php is read-protected
21:16:19 <elliott> oh, i see
21:16:24 <elliott> I was just commenting on the source it was showing :P
21:16:35 <ais523\unfoog> $l_total_user_s = ($total_users == 0) ? 'TOTAL_USERS_ZERO' : 'TOTAL_USERS_OTHER';
21:16:40 <Vorpal> actually that still looks unsafe
21:16:43 <ais523\unfoog> the quotes there are worrying me
21:17:01 <elliott> Vorpal: it isn't
21:17:04 <elliott> because user_id will be integral
21:17:23 <Vorpal> hm
21:17:35 <Vorpal> elliott, depends on the source of $user->data
21:17:43 <Vorpal> I just hope it isn't straight from a cookie
21:17:44 <Vorpal> or such
21:18:08 <elliott> Pretty sure someone would have noticed an exploit THAT obvious.
21:18:24 <Vorpal> $user->session_begin();
21:18:28 <Vorpal> hm
21:18:32 <Vorpal> so session data
21:18:47 <Vorpal> well, that would require analysing a lot of the stuff to figure that out
21:19:11 <ais523\unfoog> session data is typically not user-controllable, although it's hard to know
21:19:18 <Vorpal> indeed
21:19:32 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, you would have to check every point it was accessed in the system to figure it out
21:19:57 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: your ability to randomly make obvious comments in IRC as if they were profound is not a particularly useful one
21:20:10 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, very true.
21:20:44 <Vorpal> ais523\unfoog, I actually didn't intend doing that

22:07:46 <elliott> No.
22:08:25 <elliott> Flobnar is prettier than Befunge-93, visually.
22:09:56 <ais523\unfoog> ah right, it isn't just a spec, but a literate test suite
22:10:00 <ais523\unfoog> that's quite an interesting idea, actually
22:10:14 <elliott> The spec is http://catseye.tc/projects/flobnar/src/Flobnar.hs :P
22:13:03 <ais523\unfoog> Flobnar is strict, right? It doesn't actually say that, but it implies it, and it's really relevant with the number of side-effects going on

22:17:40 <ais523\unfoog> I forgot, but it abbreviated it to "J"

22:20:02 <ais523\unfoog> I'd always been accessing it via the menus up to now
22:20:48 <ais523\unfoog> Coding system for saving this buffer:
22:20:49 <ais523\unfoog> J -- iso-2022-7bit-unix
22:20:50 <ais523\unfoog> so now we know

22:23:31 <ais523\unfoog> that's a weird mistake to make…
22:23:57 <ais523\unfoog> also, has a different meaning in regex and wildmat, and both would match the set of files I wanted (in the case of a regex, if properly anchored)

22:28:55 <ais523\unfoog> what insane situation are you in that makes you want to change those paths on ELF files?
22:30:45 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: a situation in which the RPATH of a proprietary executable is broken
22:30:53 <ais523\unfoog> OK, that is pretty insane
22:31:04 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: no, it's not
22:31:15 <elliott> or: when the ELF interpreter path of a proprietary executable is broken
22:31:26 <ais523\unfoog> I mean, that the executable is wrong
22:31:27 <monqy> propritary executables? whats that
22:31:36 <ais523\unfoog> surely such things should have standardised values, as it makes no sense to do it otherwise?
22:31:49 <ais523\unfoog> monqy: binaries that you can't recompile for legal or technical reasons, and also that you didn't write
22:32:00 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: what if your libraries aren't in /lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib?
22:32:02 <monqy> crazy
22:32:14 <elliott> in NixOS, they're in /nix/store/sd8fusd9f35890uefd0wj90-libfoo-3.0/lib
22:32:14 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: then why aren't they there?

22:33:43 <ais523\unfoog> wow, a) why are they constantly changing the interface for no good reason, it's as bad as firefox, b) I don't care about either the new or old version, c) why does the mouse form a text selection cursor when I move the mouse pointer over the popup yet I can't select the text to copy-and-paste it so I had to retype all that?
22:34:04 <elliott> (b) sounds more like your problem than Chromium's
22:34:12 <ais523\unfoog> well, yes
22:34:21 <monqy> i wish my new tab page could be blank
22:34:24 <elliott> I mean, unless you think a UI update should be completely silent and not offer any kind of help at all to confuse people as much as possible
22:34:29 <monqy> fancy new tab pages make me sad
22:34:46 <monqy> I also wish I could control autocomplete
22:34:57 <pikhq> a) is because the browser devs seem to think that change is good, even when it's just change for the sake of change.
22:35:13 <ais523\unfoog> also, why is gmail telling me about changes to Google Buzz when this is a single-use account that hasn't used it ever?
22:35:24 <elliott> changes = it's being shut down
22:35:39 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: I think it's hilarious that Microsoft copies OS X and Linux even when they're full of bad rather than good ideas
22:36:00 <ais523\unfoog> (not actually more than vaguely related, but I'm in a non sequitur sort of mood)
22:36:37 <ais523\unfoog> also, why does Chromium switch to a new tab when I control-click it?
22:36:43 <ais523\unfoog> that completely defeats half the point of control-clicking
22:36:55 <elliott> Control-click what?
22:37:18 <ais523\unfoog> err, middle-click
22:37:19 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: ?

22:37:38 <elliott> You're doing something wrong
22:37:39 <ais523\unfoog> I use control-click rather than middle click normally as middle-clicking is awkward on a touchpad
22:37:45 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: probably it's gmail's fault, then
22:37:48 <ais523\unfoog> I absolutely hate gmail

22:44:10 <ais523\unfoog> probably

22:44:29 <ais523\unfoog> I think I know how Wooble feels constantly at the moment
22:44:37 <elliott> Hmm, does anyone know how to modify a process' environment variables?
22:44:43 <ais523\unfoog> it might be sensible to /ignore me until tomorrow
22:44:55 <elliott> I don't /ignore anyone.
22:44:55 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: processes don't have environment variables as a constant thing
22:45:07 <ais523\unfoog> rather, they're passed environment variables as a (possibly hidden) argument to main
22:45:15 <ais523\unfoog> via the execve syscall, which takes the environment as an argument
22:45:17 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: yes they do: see putenv
22:45:22 <ais523\unfoog> libc handles the illusion of a consistent environment
22:45:30 <ais523\unfoog> all putenv is doing is changing a variable inside the libc
22:45:38 <elliott> Well, OK, here's a different question:
22:45:39 <ais523\unfoog> which remembers the environment for if you call a wrapper like execl
22:45:50 <elliott> Does anyone know how to modify the libc's idea of environment variables of a process behind its back?
22:46:12 <ais523\unfoog> the variable is normally exposed as "environ", IIRC
22:46:18 <ais523\unfoog> but that's only from within the same process
22:46:29 <ais523\unfoog> that's a bit like asking "does anyone know how to modify main's idea of argv behind its back?"
22:46:41 <elliott> yep
22:46:46 <elliott> I'm not expecting it to be clean
22:46:46 <ais523\unfoog> which is also a valid and moderately sensible question, but I don't know the answer
22:47:01 <ais523\unfoog> you'd basically have to do the equivalent of attaching a debugger
22:47:15 <elliott> ok, so I'll have to either tweak or rewrite cunionfs at the very least...
22:47:20 <elliott> since this isn't feasible
22:47:28 <elliott> new question: what per-process namespaces does linux offer?
22:47:33 <elliott> (general use of the word namespace, not the linux meaning)
22:47:40 <elliott> environment variables are one
22:47:47 <elliott> /proc is another, in a way
22:47:57 <ais523\unfoog> fds?
22:48:01 <elliott> but I don't know if you can create files under /proc/<pid>
22:48:06 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: that other things can modify :)
22:48:19 <ais523\unfoog> you might want to look at the docs for the clone(2) system call
22:48:20 <elliott> the usecase is: cunionfs reads the list of directories to union from an environment variable
22:48:31 <ais523\unfoog> they explain a lot about what can optionally be shared between processes
22:48:35 <elliott> so you can start a process seeing a different union set by passing an environment variable
22:48:41 <elliott> but I want to modify the union /after/ a process starts
22:48:51 <elliott> so I need a mutable-from-outside per-process data store
22:49:17 <ais523\unfoog> ah, ouch
22:49:33 <ais523\unfoog> open unlinked fd, and writing to it via /proc, is probably the least insane method
22:49:37 <ais523\unfoog> even though it's somewhat insane
22:49:45 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: that's more insane than just using files
22:49:55 <elliott> i.e. /run/magicunion/<pid>
22:51:04 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: but files are kind of ugly, since they're not tied to the lifetime of the process, etc. :)
22:51:38 <elliott> that also might be suboptimal because it forces a syscall per file access in the union
22:51:42 <elliott> to read the union file
22:51:50 <elliott> but I guess that's inevitable if it's going to be mutable
22:52:03 <elliott> at the very least you'd need a syscall to figure out whether the union changed
22:52:16 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: that's why unlinked file; that is tied to the lifetime of the process
22:52:41 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: it has to work with every process
22:52:54 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: I can't force everybody to open an fd before calling exec() after fork()...
22:53:46 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: I'm probably OK if I need to write a kernel module for this, if that'll allow me to create e.g. /proc/<pid>/union
22:53:56 -!- NihilistDandy has quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds).
22:54:14 <ais523\unfoog> what are you trying to do, in as in why do you want to do the why do you want to do this?
22:54:20 <ais523\unfoog> because it sounds beautifully insane
22:54:23 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: "in as in"?
22:54:29 <ais523\unfoog> *as in
22:54:35 <ais523\unfoog> and being willing to write a kernel module just to make it work makes it sound vaguely important
22:55:45 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: well, I'm working on Kitten, and have a Nix-style purely functional directory-per-package store, which needs to be aggregated into a single file tree so that you only have to add one directory to your path rather than five hundred; Nix does this by statically generating a tree of symlinks
22:55:55 <elliott> but doing it as a unionfs seems cleaner to me
22:56:10 <elliott> but if you e.g. install a package, then all your running processes have to be updated to see it in the tree
22:56:18 <elliott> = mutating the set of union branches
22:56:36 <ais523\unfoog> perhaps it'd make more sense for the fs to handle all that by itself?
22:56:41 <elliott> what fs?
22:56:55 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: anyway, I /explicitly/ want it to be per-process
22:56:58 <ais523\unfoog> a custom one based on unionfs
22:57:02 <elliott> because that lets me do cool things
22:57:02 <ais523\unfoog> that knows about processes
22:57:10 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: cunionfs /does/ know about processes
22:57:13 <elliott> (cunionfs, not unionfs)
22:57:18 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: but, like I said, does it through environment variables
22:57:19 <ais523\unfoog> ah, OK
22:57:23 <ais523\unfoog> well, I think I'm out of my depth, here
22:57:30 <elliott> I'm asking, how should my unionfs read the union set so I canm utate it?
22:57:35 <elliott> s/nm /n m/
22:57:53 <ais523\unfoog> what events would make the set change?
22:58:11 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: installing a package, removing a package
22:58:27 -!- Darth_Cliche has quit (Quit: You are now graced with my absence.).
22:58:28 <ais523\unfoog> and it'd change it for all executables provided by that package?
22:58:31 <elliott> installing a package has to add /.../sduf89sdfu98f98-firefox-348978947234 to the union
22:58:38 <elliott> so that /.../sduf89sdfu98f98-firefox-348978947234/bin becomes part of /union/path/bin
22:58:51 <elliott> removing it has to remove it
22:58:53 <ais523\unfoog> ah, OK
22:58:56 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: no, it'd do it for all running executables
22:59:01 <elliott> well, ran by the user
22:59:01 <ais523\unfoog> what bonuses do you get for this being per-process?
22:59:33 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: [~/really-old-program]$ with 'gcc == 3.*' ./configure
22:59:50 <ais523\unfoog> aha
23:00:01 <ais523\unfoog> but, hmm, /that/ setting won't change with package changes
23:00:14 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: yes, I lied a bit: it'd mutate everything set to "defaults"
23:00:18 <elliott> hmm
23:00:25 <elliott> maybe I could have a specific "default" branch setting
23:00:27 <ais523\unfoog> so it might be possible to have two layers, a system-wide one that can change during process lifetime, and a per-process one that's fixed throughout the whole lifetime?
23:00:33 <elliott> and that would cause the unionfs to look up what the current defaults are
23:00:46 <elliott> then there'd be no mutation necessary
23:01:01 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: thanks, this might help :P
23:01:02 <ais523\unfoog> bleh, my computer's so unresponsive when it's simultaneously running four O(n^3) CPU-bound algos
23:01:16 <elliott> Shocking.
23:01:35 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: you might want to set the priorities of X, your WM and your panel to realtime
23:01:56 <ais523\unfoog> perhaps, but I don't care that much
23:02:03 <ais523\unfoog> besides, this lets me know when the programs have finished
23:02:17 <ais523\unfoog> and using RT prios on programs not obviously designed for them's always a bit risky
23:03:00 <ais523\unfoog> (Linux has been changed so that no longer hard-locks the entire system, right?)
23:03:27 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: well, isochronous would be better than RT, but I doubt you're running BFS
23:08:49 <elliott> kmc: Oh man, that GHC bug you found will actually affect some code I'm writing :-|
23:08:58 <elliott> I'm upset.
23:09:15 <ais523\unfoog> does it have a trivial but bizarre workaround?
23:10:07 <elliott> Depends what you mean by trivial.
23:10:15 <Vorpal> elliott, Phantom_Hoover: NEW HUMBLE BUNDLE
23:10:23 <elliott> EVERYBODY RUUUUUUUUUN
23:10:49 <Vorpal> elliott, yes. 3 seconds and 13 days
23:11:05 <elliott> "Voxatron is an arcade/adventure game set in an entirely destructible world made out of voxels (little cubes, kind of)."
23:11:07 <Phantom_Hoover> Vorpal, given that the 3rd was kind of crap, and the second has a game I wanted but couldn't play and another, admittedly good game, I'll pass.
23:11:07 <elliott> And it's an alpha.
23:11:09 <Vorpal> I'm looking at what the game is atm
23:11:11 <elliott> THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR....................
23:11:29 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, well, I just thought I ought to inform you
23:11:32 <elliott> Looks cool actually.
23:11:36 <elliott> No wait this loosk super cool.
23:11:39 <elliott> Does this have multiplayer?
23:11:44 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: If this has multiplayery ou have to get it.
23:11:59 <Vorpal> elliott, he has an intel cardboard box.
23:12:09 <elliott> Vorpal: Dude, it's a retro-styled voxel game.
23:12:13 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, and yeah it sucks that the games didn't work for you
23:12:21 <Vorpal> Phantom_Hoover, I can assure you most of them were awesome
23:12:53 <elliott> OK so this is just... one game.
23:12:56 <elliott> I'm paying like a penny.
23:14:14 <elliott> This, uh.
23:14:24 <Vorpal> elliott, I'm going to pay like 0.1€ more than the current average. Just in case.
23:14:25 <elliott> Vorpal: There's references to previews of this game from 300 days ago.
23:14:29 <elliott> Long alpha.
23:14:32 <Vorpal> elliott, hm
23:14:37 <Vorpal> elliott, reminds of some game
23:14:39 <elliott> Vorpal: Also you can increase what you're payingl ater.
23:14:44 <elliott> s/l a/ la/

23:15:51 <elliott> <elliott> And it's an alpha.
23:15:51 <elliott> <elliott> THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR....................
23:15:52 <Vorpal> elliott, this looks like a 3D editor to me: http://www.lexaloffle.com/gfx/ssvox6.png
23:15:55 <elliott> Beat you to it; also funnier.
23:16:02 <Vorpal> elliott, yes right, but I meant the alpha thingy
23:16:04 <Vorpal> long alpha
23:16:05 <elliott> Vorpal: That's because that's what it is.
23:16:13 <Vorpal> oh the map editor?
23:16:28 <elliott> Also object editor, it looks like.
23:16:46 <Vorpal> I'm curently limited due to small monitor, I'll bring this up on my desktop once I rebooted it.
23:18:04 <Vorpal> there we go
23:18:53 <elliott> Hmm, I wonder if I can separate things into two types of options to make the DSL route work...
23:20:25 <Vorpal> interesting certainly
23:20:40 <Vorpal> will go for a small sum for the start
23:21:52 <Vorpal> elliott, I like the "do whatever the verb of google plus is" in that video. What is the verb?
23:22:19 <elliott> Nonplus.
23:22:54 <elliott> NPROCS=$(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor | awk '{a++} END {print a}') \
23:22:54 <elliott> Heh.
23:24:12 <elliott> make install -j$NPROCS ICK_SPECIFIC_SUBDIR=ick DESTDIR="$1"
23:24:17 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: what does ICK_SPECIFIC_SUBDIR even do?
23:24:29 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: it's a hook for Debian
23:24:47 <elliott> that isn't an answer :P
23:24:47 <ais523\unfoog> it names the directory of the global places that hold directories for all sorts of programs, that is specific to INTERCAL
23:25:02 <elliott> wait, what?
23:25:10 <ais523\unfoog> you know how you have /usr/lib/perl, etc?
23:25:13 <ais523\unfoog> that's the INTERCAL equivalent
23:25:22 <elliott> oh
23:25:26 <elliott> what is it by default, then?
23:25:31 <ais523\unfoog> ick-$version
23:25:36 <elliott> ah
23:25:38 <ais523\unfoog> Debian don't like versioned subdirs
23:25:40 <Vorpal> huh, 64-bit deb, but just one .tar.gz, I wonder if it is 32-bit or 64-bit
23:25:41 <ais523\unfoog> so I gave them a hook
23:25:46 <elliott> evidently I didn't either
23:25:50 <ais523\unfoog> because manually patching the makefile is annoying
23:26:01 <ais523\unfoog> well, it feels dirty in a way
23:26:21 <Vorpal> oh that is 32-bit
23:28:24 -!- copumpkin has joined.
23:29:01 <Vorpal> elliott, aiee the resolution options of this game sucks
23:29:12 <Vorpal> it can do native + 800x600 + some weird even smaller ones
23:29:23 <Vorpal> so it is either full screen or tiny window for me
23:29:52 <elliott> Vorpal: just run it in gdb :P
23:30:01 <Vorpal> elliott, this is the list of resolutions: 1680x1050, 840x525 (wtf?), 800x600, 800x480
23:30:07 <Vorpal> 800x480? What?
23:30:15 <ais523\unfoog> Vorpal: it's a small widescreen res
23:30:20 -!- evincar has joined.
23:30:49 <Vorpal> heh
23:31:52 <elliott> Vorpal: maybe it just upscales beyond that to keep the retro aesthetics

23:32:06 <HackEgo> 704) <Phantom_Hoover> Life expectancy now is a function of whether you go berserk or not.
23:34:37 <Vorpal> well, their live chat works okay
23:36:22 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: how crazy does this sound: constantly run a daemon that uses inotify to incrementally backup every change to every file (reverse binary diff snapshotting, etc.)
23:36:52 <elliott> well, every file apart from /run and /tmp and the like :)
23:37:04 <ais523\unfoog> elliott: better to make it an OS feature rather than trying to userland it, I think
23:37:28 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: I can implement this faster than I can implement @
23:37:50 <ais523\unfoog> fair enough
23:37:58 <ais523\unfoog> is Kitten practice for @?
23:38:27 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: no, Kitten's so I don't give up on computers and become an anarcho-primitivist before @ comes out
23:38:43 <ais523\unfoog> haha
23:38:50 <ais523\unfoog> you are too much a perfectionist :)
23:39:00 <elliott> no, everything else is just that broken :)
23:39:07 <augur> fizzie: syn
23:39:27 <elliott> ais523\unfoog: anyway, a perfectionist would never create a linux distro...
23:39:53 <elliott> hmm, I think nilfs actually does what I want
23:39:58 <augur> elliott: mind reading something?
23:40:01 <elliott> "NILFS creates a number of checkpoints every few seconds or per synchronous write basis (unless there is no change). Users can select significant versions among continuously created checkpoints, and can change them into snapshots which will be preserved until they are changed back to checkpoints."
23:40:11 <elliott> and you can mount snapshots
23:40:13 <elliott> augur: go on
23:40:21 <augur> http://wellnowwhat.net/linguistics/Draft2.pdf up to but not including section 3
23:40:28 <augur> prose might be choppy
23:40:44 <elliott> this is going to be boring isn't it :'(
23:41:16 <elliott> "Most dogs love Alpo, and most cats love Whiskas"
23:41:18 <elliott> augur: [citation needed]
23:41:42 <augur> use/mention
23:42:58 <evincar> If you wanted to statically type a Forth-like language, what would be the type of a word with multiple possible stack effects? Say, something that turns an "End"-delimited series of values into a list.
23:43:33 <evincar> I guess that's not the best example, because you could call it A End B -> A [B] or whatever.
23:44:02 <elliott> see cat, factor
23:44:05 <elliott> mostly cat
23:44:15 <elliott> words with dynamic stack effects are simply not allwoed
23:44:23 <elliott> you could do some kind of ad-hoc overloading a la typeclasses, but that's not the same thing
23:44:28 <elliott> since that's static
23:44:50 <elliott> "For those readers who are unfamiliar with American pet products, Alpo
23:44:50 <elliott> and Whiskas are brands of dog food and cat food, respectively."
23:44:53 <elliott> augur: whiskas is uk too at least
23:44:56 <elliott> dunno about alpo
23:45:02 <augur> elliott: i know both are in finland as well
23:45:10 <elliott> augur: anyway has nobody really investigated this before
23:45:10 <augur> but ive had some people complain they didnt know wtf i was talking about
23:45:12 <elliott> it'd be like
23:45:17 <elliott> item one on my why is language so fucked up project
23:45:22 -!- ais523\unfoog has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
23:45:28 <augur> maybe five people have, but the explanations are shit
23:45:56 <elliott> augur: your field is fucked >:(
23:46:11 <augur> elliott: theres lots of other stuff that people are concerned with
23:46:14 <evincar> elliott: Thanks...that's generally what I was thinking, but it seems a rather arbitrary limitation. :/
23:46:26 <augur> a lot of current research, for instance, is interested in quantificational properties
23:46:37 -!- sllide has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
23:46:46 <elliott> evincar: some kind of thing restricting how values can be combined to eliminate a large class of bad programs while rejecting some good ones by necessity...
23:46:48 <elliott> almost like
23:46:49 <elliott> some kind of
23:46:51 <elliott> type system
23:46:54 <evincar> It seems like a failing of the type system though.
23:47:04 <evincar> That you can't denote the type of an arbitrary stack effect.
23:47:19 <evincar> But then you'd end up with dependent typing for no reason?
23:47:21 <evincar> I guess?
23:47:28 <elliott> augur: these diagrams are so boring
23:47:37 <augur> elliott: the trees? i know.
23:47:44 <augur> they're all the same!
23:47:45 <elliott> can't you just write them inline
23:47:52 <augur> the trees?
23:48:05 <elliott> yeah
23:48:06 <augur> er.. there is notation for that, but it's not as easy to read
23:48:08 <elliott> augur: "In view of the fourt property," typo
23:48:14 <augur> yeah ive fixed that locally
23:48:24 <elliott> "In (41) and (??)," ?? isn't a number hth
23:48:54 <augur> yes, the finnish examples have yet to be added
23:49:04 <augur> so \ref{} is pointing to nothing
23:49:15 <augur> its not complete, that part
23:50:02 <elliott> yeah i know :P
23:50:09 <elliott> can you actually cite random people on irc for this
23:50:10 <elliott> i mean
23:50:11 <elliott> i'd just lie
23:50:52 <augur> you never cite your informants
23:51:17 <elliott> wow so i can just write a paper full of shit
23:51:17 <elliott> awesome
23:51:49 <elliott> "He will eat a hamburger and her a hotdog"
23:51:53 <Vorpal> <elliott> Vorpal: maybe it just upscales beyond that to keep the retro aesthetics <-- no it doesn't
23:51:54 <elliott> augur: i can confirm this is 101% idiomatic
23:52:12 <augur> elliott: sorry?
23:52:16 <elliott> 102%.
23:52:27 <Vorpal> elliott, anyway you can do it manually: ~/.lexaloffle/Voxatron/config.txt
23:52:27 <augur> im not sure what you mean by "101% idiomatic"
23:52:29 <elliott> it gets more idiomatic the more i look at it. trust me. native english speaker. you wouldn't understand.
23:52:34 <augur> perhaps you mean colloquial?
23:52:34 <Vorpal> elliott, editing that by hand works
23:52:42 <elliott> augur: no I mean it is totally correct.
23:52:46 <elliott> i am the most serious linguist
23:53:06 <augur> idiomatic does not mean correct :|
23:53:09 <evincar> It's true, actually. "Her" basically stands for "as for her". :P
23:53:11 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Quit: Leaving).
23:53:17 <elliott> it's
23:53:24 <augur> idiomatic means that the meaning isn't obviously connected to the words
23:53:24 <elliott> not
23:53:26 <augur> like "kick the bucket"
23:53:30 <elliott> no it's not true evincar i was bullshitting
23:53:43 <evincar> elliott: I was aware you were bullshitting and was contradicting you.
23:53:51 <augur> evincar: also, "her" definitely doesnt stand for "as for her" there
23:53:56 <elliott> "He will eat a hamburger and she a hotdog" = makes sense
23:53:58 <elliott> "He will eat a hamburger and her a hotdog" = doesn't
23:54:05 <evincar> Unless you weren't actually bullshitting and just pretending not to be bullshitting.
23:54:18 <augur> elliott: makes sense in what way
23:54:21 <elliott> although the former looks kinda wrong too ~SEMANTIC SATIATION~
23:54:27 <elliott> augur: well i parse it about ten times easier :P
23:54:32 <elliott> isn't the former meant to be the correct one
23:54:33 <elliott> i've lost track
23:54:35 <evincar> If most native speakers can correctly infer the meaning of a phrase, it's correct as far as I'm concerned.
23:54:36 <elliott> fuck language
23:54:41 <elliott> augur: ask a native lojban speaker next
23:54:43 <augur> elliott: "meant to be" no
23:54:46 <augur> i mean
23:54:57 <augur> subject case in english is a mess
23:55:01 <augur> its extremely variable
23:55:02 <elliott> augur: meant to be as in
23:55:04 <evincar> Case inflection is so five centuries ago.
23:55:06 <elliott> in the context of the paper
23:55:08 <augur> there are people who insist that it must be "she"
23:55:13 <evincar> Six or seven, really.
23:55:15 <augur> but thats irrelevant
23:55:24 <elliott> the latter is definitely super hard tor ead
23:55:25 <augur> in the paper, no, neither is "more correct"
23:55:25 <elliott> to read
23:55:43 <elliott> augur: i'm not going prescriptivist on you I just assumed everyone would find the latter one wrong :P
23:55:55 <augur> elliott: oh, no, everyone i talk to prefers the latter one
23:56:01 <elliott> hmm
23:56:05 <elliott> well they both look wrong to me
23:56:05 <augur> but thats just case shit
23:56:08 <elliott> so i guess i'm just ruined
23:56:24 <evincar> I celebrate my minor victory by mounting my platypus.
23:56:24 <augur> yeah its plausible that pronominals would be harder to get
23:56:36 <augur> elliott: you might also want some discourse context to ameliorate it
23:56:50 <elliott> augur: wow i want to punch you for that sentence
23:56:57 <augur> why :(
23:56:59 <elliott> nothing personal
23:58:51 <evincar> I'm pretty sure all punches, however hypothetical, are personal. :P
23:59:26 <augur> elliott: well you can try. you might hurt yourself tho D:
