00:15:19 <oerjan> something zero width, anyway
00:16:01 <shachaf> What's an Alan Dipert?
00:16:11 <elliott> *ALAN DIPERT
00:16:17 <elliott> ALAN DIPERT is the owner of ESOLANGS.ORG.
00:16:33 <elliott> His name is written in all-caps as of A FEW HOURS AGO.
00:16:38 <elliott> He has been sleeping for TWO DAYS.
00:18:57 <shachaf> Has he been sleeping for two days?
00:19:17 <shachaf> Tech Name:Alan Dipert
00:19:31 <shachaf> If you emailed ALAN DIPERT then it got to the wrong person.
00:19:35 <shachaf> You want Alan Dipert.
00:19:41 <shachaf> Registrant Name:Alan Dipert
00:20:12 <elliott> No.
00:20:19 <elliott> That's a limitation of the DNS system or something.

00:23:06 <shachaf> Am I?
00:23:12 <shachaf> Everyone's a moron, I think.

00:33:46 <shachaf> elliott: Your presence is missed in other IRC channels.
00:33:54 <shachaf> There is quite a vacuum.
00:36:14 <elliott> pir^2: Not runs.
00:36:15 <elliott> Just owns the domain.
00:36:24 <elliott> The official domain is technically esoteric.voxelperfect.net.
00:36:35 <pir^2> and the other is... ?
00:36:36 <elliott> See http://esoteric.voxelperfect.net/wiki/Esolang_talk:Community_Portal#Site_move_.2F_wiki_read-only for why I'm waiting for his response.

00:54:13 <oerjan> Y U SO ANGRY
00:54:20 <pir^2> U MAD?
00:55:09 <elliott> oerjan: Please kick pir^2 & yourself.
00:55:38 <pir^2> Why?
00:56:05 <elliott> I think that is self-evident.
00:57:30 <oerjan> elliott is so axiomatically minded
00:57:49 <pir^2> I seriously didn't mean it in a trolling way...
00:58:55 <elliott> It's trolling to contribute lowering the signal/noise ratio below even reddit's with memes that stopped being entertaining years ago. :(
01:03:59 <monqy> "stopped being entertaining before they existed"
01:04:57 <elliott> I was being charitable.
01:05:15 <pikhq> reddit really needs a meme filter.
01:05:16 <pir^2> how much money do you need us to donate?
01:05:19 <pikhq> Not a spam filter, a meme filter.
01:05:25 <elliott> Anyway, derivative nonsense like that will only drive people away. And it has.

02:20:23 <elliott> Fly over there and wake up THE ALAN DIPERT.
02:20:26 <elliott> (He has a THE now.)
02:20:37 <shachaf> Is it part of the name?
02:20:52 <elliott> Yes.
02:21:15 <shachaf> The THE ALAN DIPERT.
02:21:49 <pikhq> I'm roughly 2,000 miles away.

02:22:45 <shachaf> Oops.
02:22:57 <pir^2> maybe if you could meet DIPERT
02:22:58 <shachaf> I meant to ask pikhq to wake up the THE ALAN DIPERT.
02:23:09 <pikhq> In fact, that's a *very* analogous distance.
02:23:16 <pikhq> You are roughly 2000 miles from Moscow.
02:23:18 <shachaf> Hey, I'm farther from North Carolina than pikhq is!
02:23:27 <shachaf> By real distance, if not by edit distance.
02:23:59 <elliott> pikhq: I'll go to Moscow if you go and wake up THE ALAN DIPERT.
02:24:22 <shachaf> elliott: What if I do it?
02:24:33 <elliott> Yes, that works too.
02:25:20 <shachaf> OK. I'll wake up THE ALAN DIPERT by using psychic powers.
02:25:27 <shachaf> He'll be awake within a few days at most.
02:25:33 <shachaf> After he wakes up, you go to Moscow.
02:26:09 <elliott> Okay. I'll go to Moscow in the same sense that you're using psychic powers.
02:26:12 <elliott> Which is to say, not.
02:26:24 <shachaf> OK, I won't use psychic powers.
02:26:30 <shachaf> I'll use causal powers, though.
02:26:35 <shachaf> It's like monochrom's purpose.
02:26:37 <elliott> Okay. I'll go to Moscow in the same sense that you're using causal powers.
02:26:40 <elliott> Which is to say, indirectly.
02:26:45 <elliott> Someone else will go to Moscow instead.
02:27:03 <pir^2> lol
02:27:11 <pikhq> ... Jeeze, the US is huge relative to EU country sizes.
02:27:21 <pir^2> why do you need to wake him up anyway?
02:27:31 <pikhq> For me to go to my nation's capital is analogous to an Englishman going to Moscow.
02:27:39 <elliott> pir^2: So that he repoints esolangs.org.
02:27:46 <pir^2> to... ?

11:12:14 <Taneb> Oh dear god I'm in 6 channels
11:16:06 <ais523> Taneb: only 6?
11:16:18 <Taneb> 7!
11:16:24 <Taneb> No wait, 6
11:16:44 <Taneb> This is more than I have ever been in before!
11:20:12 <Taneb> Now I'm in 8!
11:20:17 <ais523> I'm currently in 11 channels and 1 query, this is about typical for me
11:20:31 <Taneb> I'm normally in 2-4
11:20:38 <ais523> (although queries are stateless, so that actually means I simply have the query tab open)
11:38:01 <quintopia> i am in 17 channels and typically reach around 30-40 queries before i start closing repeats or reboot irssi
11:38:27 <ais523> it doesn't automatically merge duplicate queries?
11:40:04 <shachaf> I assume quintopia is not having identical conversations.
11:40:09 <quintopia> nah. if someone nicks to nickA and later contacts me as nickB, it starts a new query
11:40:23 <quintopia> and never merges them even if they nickA again
11:40:32 <shachaf> Which is annoying, by the way.
11:40:52 <ion> How about autoclosing inactive query windows?
11:41:16 <ais523> <combustible> Of course, on the system I administrate, vi is symlinked to ed. Emacs has been replaced by a shell script which 1) Generates a syslog message at level LOG_EMERG; 2) reduces the user's disk quota by 100K; and 3) RUNS ED!!!!!!
11:41:17 <quintopia> the downside of that is that there are a few queries i always want open
11:41:25 * ais523 somehow feels that this is a bad idea
11:41:33 <quintopia> i talk to certain people often enough i want query-number-permanence
11:41:36 -!- Frooxius has quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.88-rdmsoft [XULRunner]).
11:42:38 <quintopia> however, most people dont nick around much, so its usually only 2 or 3 duplicates
11:45:29 <fizzie> I've seen that ed thing before.
11:45:38 <fizzie> Isn't it from that "ed is the standard text editor" document?
11:45:40 <ais523> fizzie: that doesn't surprise me
11:45:52 <shachaf> The solution is obviously to use channels instead of /queries.
11:45:58 <shachaf> n^2 channels.
11:46:09 <fizzie> http://www.gnu.org/fun/jokes/ed.msg.html
11:46:21 <fizzie> So it's not a very gnu joke; in fact, it's rather old.
11:46:31 <shachaf> What's a gnu joke?
11:46:50 <fizzie> On the other hand, based on the URL I guess it *is* a gnu joke.
11:47:20 <ais523> shachaf: the g in gnu is sometimes pronounced silently
11:47:33 <ais523> although when it's referring to the FSF's main coding project, I think it's pronounced
11:48:09 <fizzie> "it is pronounced as one syllable with a hard g, like “grew” but with the letter “n” instead of “r”."

13:21:51 <fizzie> Trivia of the day: In William Gibson's book Neuromancer, there's an organization watching over AIs; they're called the "Turing cops". The Finnish translation of the book translates that to "Torinon kytät", lit. "cops of Torino", after the Italian city of Torino (Turin).
13:22:14 <ais523> oerjan: OCaml has tags?
13:22:37 <fizzie> Same thing extends to a couple of other terms, like the "Turing registry" (a list of AIs, indexed by code name), which is turned into the "registry of Torino".

18:04:40 <zzo38> Do you think, you could write more quiz file for Internet Quiz Engine? And possibly you can help me to suggest how the program for text input should be implement too, if it should be required
18:12:47 <zzo38> Please write more file, do you know that? Any question?
18:13:20 <quintopia> i have no idea what an inernet quiz engine is, but i know there are plenty of quizzes on the internet already
18:15:13 <zzo38> Internet Quiz Engine is a program I have written, in C, and can be accessed by following: gopher://zzo38computer.cjb.net:70/1quiz.menu*a
18:17:14 <zzo38> You can read documentation to understand how it work, possibly. And yes there are plenty of quizzes on internet already but in my opinion their programs are deficient but bloated
18:20:12 <zzo38> To order the quiz files in the index, I used something I once saw in another program, called "pseudo-alphabetical order" which means that the first item on the list is selected at random and then it is in alphabetical order. The start of the alphabetical order is then placed after the last one.

19:03:34 -!- quintopia has joined.
19:09:12 <ais523> zzo38: I don't
19:09:46 <Jafet> Surely there are better ultimate showdowns of destiny than FreeDOS vs. CP/M.
19:09:56 <ais523> FreeDOS boots pretty quickly if you turn off config.sys and autoexec.bat (around a second on the hardware around when DOS was popular, so much faster on modern hardware), but I don't know how fast CP/M boots
19:11:48 <zzo38> I know how fast FreeDOS boots since I operate a FreeDOS computer at one location. I did turn off some things in the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files, such as mouse drivers and so on. And then other things can be set to speed up too. It is a CRT monitor, and if you turn on monitor and computer at the same time, BBL/Abundance is ready before the picture appears.

20:40:36 <oerjan> hm the view source for the logs has better formatting in my browser than the logs themselves normally have
20:42:58 <oerjan> oh hm i see now that today's logs are even more broken than i thought, it's missing the nicks altogether, probably because it thinks they are nonexistent html tags
20:43:03 <oerjan> Gregor: ^
20:43:23 <oerjan> so it's interpreting the whole page as html or something
20:44:51 <Gregor> Are you talking about the .txt?
20:45:04 <oerjan> hm could this be that IE text/html bug i've heard someone here talk about?
20:45:06 <oerjan> and yes.
20:45:13 <Gregor> ... IE?
20:45:26 <ais523> oerjan: it's me who talked about it
20:45:28 <Gregor> I am not responsible for your browser being too stupid to understand what text/plain means.
20:45:33 <ais523> basically, IE sometimes interprets text/plain as text/html
20:45:39 <oerjan> er, text/plain
20:45:44 <oerjan> :(
20:45:53 <ais523> and websites /have/ to deal with that, as it's an XSS bug
20:46:11 <ais523> gah, the nick "script" is taken
20:46:18 <fizzie> What's "trøndersk"?
20:46:24 <ais523> I was going to say some javascript
20:46:36 <oerjan> ais523: surely you can just say it outright
20:46:42 <ais523> oh, duh
20:46:49 <ais523> <script>javascript:alert("test")</script>
20:46:52 <ais523> oerjan: now visit the page again
20:47:03 <ais523> <script>alert("test");</script>
20:47:07 <ais523> err, that's better
20:47:32 <oerjan> fizzie: the dialects of the trøndelag counties
20:47:34 <ais523> the usual workaround to the bug, btw, is to use a MIME type of text/css for plaintext
20:47:42 <ais523> even though that makes no sense
20:47:46 <ais523> it works in all major browsers
20:47:58 <oerjan> ais523: eek that worked
20:48:07 <ais523> haha
20:48:26 <fizzie> ais523: You'll make oerjans browser all testy.
20:48:26 <ais523> oerjan: what version of IE are you using?
20:48:30 <oerjan> IE 8
20:48:41 <fizzie> Also waiting for the img tags.
20:49:06 <monqy> <marquee>helloerjan</marquee>
20:50:14 <Gregor> <script>document.location = "http://meatspin.com/";</script>
20:50:15 <fizzie> And what about some <script> window.location = "http://www.disney.com/"; </script> nonsense?
20:50:18 <fizzie> Aw.
20:50:51 <oerjan> ...that's a shock site isn't it.
20:51:19 <Gregor> As shock sites go it's pretty mild, it's just amusing gay porn.
20:51:28 <oerjan> oh.
20:52:11 <fizzie> ISTR it has a counter of how long you've spent watching it? (I don't want to try the Flash out on this phone-browser.)
20:52:25 <Gregor> Number of spins.
20:52:30 <fizzie> Right.
20:52:33 <Gregor> After some arbitrary number it announces that you're officially gay.
20:53:51 <oerjan> what worries me is that my usual logreading habits means i'll be reloading this page tomorrow if i don't remember this...
20:54:05 <oerjan> *mean
20:54:06 <Gregor> ^^
20:54:32 <ais523> so, is the conclusion "gregor change the mimetype to work around an IE8 bug", or "oerjan use a less buggy browser"?
20:54:40 <oerjan> the former.
20:55:03 <Gregor> The MIME type is correct as far as standards are concerned, is there some trick you need to convince IE Garbage Edition of that?
20:55:21 <ais523> Gregor: the problem is, you /can't/, text/plain doesn't support any sort of tag
20:55:47 <Gregor> Uhh, exactly?
20:56:01 <Gregor> The Content-type is text/plain.
20:56:07 <ais523> fixed in IE9, apparently
20:57:12 <ais523> from a search, apparently you can use content-disposition:attachment as a workaround, but ofc that prevents anyone else viewing it in their browser
20:57:38 <kallisti> sounds good
20:57:48 <ais523> there's also apparently a registry key you can use to fix IE's behaviour, as an oerjan-side workaround
20:58:44 <ais523> Gregor: aha, SO have a fix that's apparently non-destructive and works on IE too; set content-disposition to inline (the default), but /also/ provide a filename that ends .txt in it
20:59:11 <ais523> all browsers but IE will ignore the filename
20:59:41 <oerjan> but this url already ends in .txt ...
21:00:13 <ais523> <ErikE> You know what the funny thing is? I eventually switched to a very plain html page with the text inside a <pre> block. This let me add some javascript to the page to prevent right-clicking, selecting, and copying.
21:00:16 <ais523> oh dear…
21:00:28 <ais523> oerjan: but that's not in the content-disposition header!
21:00:52 <oerjan> okay
21:01:02 <Gregor> ...
21:01:04 <Gregor> X_X
21:01:18 <Gregor> On the grounds that I want oerjan to accidentally watch some gay porn tomorrow, I won't.
21:01:40 <oerjan> but wait, does that mean IE will then insist on saving to file instead?
21:01:51 <Gregor> oerjan: That's content-disposition: attachment
21:02:04 <oerjan> Gregor: i mean that .txt thing ais523 said
21:02:45 <Gregor> oerjan: He said content-disposition "inline", the filename is separate (although part of the same header)
21:02:53 <ais523> oerjan: content-disposition: inline;filename="something.txt"
21:03:13 <ais523> note that I haven't tested this, it's just off some website
21:03:18 <ais523> (SO, to be precise)
21:04:38 * oerjan does something to decrease the likelihood of an accident
21:05:24 <ais523> oerjan: hmm, what was it?
21:05:31 <fizzie> Write a post-it note of "remember that gay porn thing" and stick it to the side of your monitor.
21:06:01 <oerjan> ais523: deleting the log link from my browser history menu
21:06:26 <oerjan> i don't have post-it notes
21:06:42 <oerjan> ...
21:06:45 <fizzie> Gregor: Incidentally, my Chrome at work wanted to save the .txt links on disk instead of viewing it inline. Don't know what's up with *that*.
21:07:06 <oerjan> SEE, IT'S NOT JUST IE
21:07:41 <ais523> fizzie: it was hoping you'd load them with IE by mistake
21:08:22 <Gregor> Oh hmm, does that in Chromium here, too.
21:08:54 <fizzie> (This was Google Chrome 17.0.963.56.)
21:09:49 <fizzie> For some reason The Administration has decided to install Chrome but not Chromium on our Ubontoo Linux machines.
21:11:09 <Gregor> Even with Content-Disposition explicitly set to inline, it wants to download >_O
21:11:27 <fizzie> It's a bit weird when it comes to downloading.
21:11:32 <ais523> Gregor: did you set the filename at the same time?
21:11:41 <Gregor> ais523: No, I don't know how to do that in a .htaccess file.
21:11:55 <ais523> ah, OK
21:12:00 <olsner> Content-Mood: downloady
21:12:17 <ais523> change 'inline' to 'inline;filename="file.txt"'?
21:12:22 <ais523> in the htaccess file?
21:12:41 <Gregor> ais523: Then Chromium will download it as file.txt
21:12:42 <fizzie> I couldn't figure out how to set it to launch PDF files with an external viewer instead of saving them to the download directory.
21:13:03 <ais523> Gregor: heh, seriously? that would be ridiculous
21:13:53 <Gregor> I guess I don't actually KNOW that, I'll test.
21:14:11 <Gregor> Yup
21:14:22 <Gregor> It just doesn't know what "inline" means >_>
21:14:57 <fizzie> It means: get in line, you peasant. You'll download the file and *like* it.
21:16:39 <olsner> oh, to change file viewers in opera you just go to the menu, settings, preferences, then go to the Advanced tab and select Downloads in the list
21:17:18 <ais523> I wouldn't expect Opera to screw text/plain up
21:17:29 <ais523> hmm, I wonder if text/css would display inline in Chromium?
21:17:37 <Gregor> ais523: It's seeming like Firefox is the only one that doesn't screw up text/plain.
21:17:53 <Gregor> Maybe it's because I explicitly set the charset to UTF-8?
21:18:06 <ais523> that seems unlikely, but who knows
21:18:08 <fizzie> ISTR that Firefox preferences had a place too. And Chromium says something about "you've configured something something", so maybe it has a thing too, just didn't find it.
21:18:24 <Gregor> ais523: At this point I'm not willing to put anything past it >_>
21:18:38 <fizzie> (Also I finally broke down and mozpluggered evince inside it to view PDFs instead of crapping to disk, but evince is unable to get keyboard focus no matter whether I needs_xembed or not. Same thing inside Firefox too.)
21:18:44 <ais523> Gregor: I meant, I wouldn't be surprised if multiple browsers got it right
21:19:02 <ais523> does it work in Safari, I wonder? I know it doesn't normally act differently from Chrome, but this isn't exactly a rendering thing, so it might
21:19:19 <olsner> I wouldn't be surprised if treating text/plain-that-looks-htmly like text breaks more than one Really Important Site
21:19:21 * ais523 tries today's log in Epiphany
21:19:36 <ais523> yep, works just fine in Epiphany
21:19:40 <ais523> and that's Webkit-based
21:19:45 <ais523> so this increases the chance of it working in Safari too
21:20:36 <Gregor> text/plain really isn't very important on the webernets.
21:20:52 <Gregor> And lest you forget, the logs are also available nicely formatted, and thanks to elliott the nicely formatted logs copypasta correctly.
21:21:34 <olsner> "Downloading file Name: 2012-02-20.txt Type: unknown"
21:21:36 <zzo38> I use text/plain for many thing I write and it is use in other circumstances too
21:21:38 <oerjan> <Gregor> Maybe it's because I explicitly set the charset to UTF-8? <-- today's logs _did_ start with a large number of color codes...
21:22:00 <monqy> `? ngevd

21:22:05 <Gregor> OHHH, looka that, earlier logs actually show fine in Chrome.
21:22:08 <monqy> "log ruiner"
21:22:18 <Gregor> So it's actually just that Chrome isn't willing to render it if the content encoding is a LIE.
21:22:25 <Gregor> Which seems fine to me.
21:23:19 <oerjan> Gregor: all you need to do is to find a content encoding which allows both UTF-8 text and irc color codes. should be a breeze.
21:23:38 <oerjan> sorry, charset
21:23:54 <ais523> we badly need a utf-8-or-maybe-latin-1 encoding
21:24:09 <Gregor> The problem is that the content encoding changes from line to line.
21:24:10 -!- Phantom__Hoover has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
21:24:17 <Gregor> There's no "figure it out on a line-by-line basis" encoding.
21:24:20 <pikhq> ais523: Which wouldn't actually solve that at all.
21:24:34 <olsner> ooh, helpfully the default option on that download dialog was actually "Open in: Opera"
21:24:49 <fizzie> IRC color codes shouldn't really be a problem, though? It's just 0x03, that's equally 0x03 in UTF-8 and is not an illegal UTF-8 sequence.
21:24:52 <zzo38> oerjan: IRC control codes are valid UTF-8, since it is ASCII control codes so it work, isn't it?
21:25:06 <ais523> pikhq: meaning "interpret this as utf-8, except where it's invalid utf-8 interpret it as latin-1 instead"
21:25:12 <fizzie> Many of the things said on the channel might not be, though.
21:25:27 <pikhq> ais523: Yes, but you would also want IRC color code parsing.
21:25:45 <ais523> oh, hmm, I was thinking generally, not IRCish in particular
21:25:46 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
21:25:46 <pikhq> Which, sure, are *valid* UTF-8 codepoints, but still.
21:25:51 <ais523> why aren't IRC color codes in Unicode yet?
21:26:11 <zzo38> Have you ever, in Pokemon Card: * Retreat twice in one turn? * Knocked out your own pokemon before the end of your turn? * Won due to opponent running out of cards? * Achieved overmate? * Evolved for the sole purpose of increasing your own retreat cost? * Played 59EYE1MEWTWO deck against an opponent who played four ENERGY REMOVAL and four SUPER ENERGY REMOVAL and you still won?
21:26:13 <pikhq> ais523: They're ASCII control codes. They're *in* Unicode, but with only context-defined semantics.
21:26:43 <ais523> pikhq: I mean, loads of encodings use control codes with particular meanings
21:26:49 <ais523> and those are moved to a different codepoint
21:26:51 <oerjan> <Gregor> And lest you forget, the logs are also available nicely formatted <-- um i seem to have forgotten that.
21:27:46 <pikhq> ais523: And IRC uses the ASCII set. Which have always had context-defined semantics. :)
21:28:26 <ais523> e.g in the IBM OEM character set, codepoint 1 is a smiley face
21:28:34 <ais523> and as a result, Unicode also has a smiley face, it just isn't codepoint 1
21:28:42 <pikhq> (literally, the proper behavior depends on the terminal you're using.)
21:28:43 <zzo38> (Yes I have once played an evolution card for the sole purpose of increasing my own active pokemon's retreat cost.)
21:28:45 <ais523> so shouldn't Unicode also have something that corresponds to IRC's codepoint 3?
21:29:07 <pikhq> ais523: Should it have a seperate encoding for VT-100 codes?
21:29:25 <ais523> zzo38: how did you still win when the opponent had energy removal?
21:29:33 <ais523> pikhq: that's more debatable, but quite possibly
21:30:29 <pikhq> There goes a whole 'nother bit, then. :P
21:30:31 <zzo38> ais523: Energy removal really doesn't affect it much if you know how to play the deck properly. There are ways to win against such a deck but energy removal isn't one of them. (You simply need to know when to attack and when to defend)
21:30:42 <ais523> ah right, I see
21:30:45 <pikhq> There were a *lot* of incompatible terminals back in the day.
21:31:27 <pikhq> And convention on the systems using those terminals was that the charset for all of them was the same, they just happened to interpret a small chunk of them differently.
21:31:41 <pikhq> Thus, the terminal setting being in TERM, not LC_*
21:32:55 <pikhq> Of course, *nowadays* that's just a comical bit of legacy. All UNIX terminals are VT-100, and all Win32 terminals are whatever the hell that DOS terminal thing is.
21:34:00 <Jafet> Comical? Surely thou jest
21:34:40 <fizzie> "All Unix terminals" have a sensible common subset, but they're certainly not all identical when it comes to specifics (window title setting if supported, 88/256-color modes, whatever).
21:34:45 <zzo38> I assume you know about the infamous 59EYE1MEWTWO deck. I thought of it far before I read about it, and when I did read about it they said it won't work due to your opponent can easily beat you in these ways... one way listed was by using ENERGY REMOVAL card. But I realized they were wrong about that. Yet, there is ways to win against such a deck. Any card that can poison with one energy can win against this deck.
21:35:03 <Jafet> xterm still thinks that being a superset of every other non-bitmapped DEC terminal ever made is an achievement
21:35:09 <pikhq> fizzie: Yeah, *but* it's quite different from how things used to be.
21:35:22 <pikhq> fizzie: Nowadays, everything is basically "VT-100 plus foo".
21:35:56 <pikhq> Which dramatically eliminates the need for a swath of (admittedly now-tiny) infrastructure for handling multiple terminal types.
21:36:04 <zzo38> ais523: Do you believe me, or do you believe the other report which I read?
21:36:57 <ais523> zzo38: hmm, I can see how you could attach energy rather than defend if you thought the opponent wouldn't attack for much
21:37:06 <pikhq> Instead of needing to know "how do I do *anything*", you just need to know "what level of color support is available, can I set the window title, etc."
21:37:19 <ais523> also, would that deck be better if it also had 4 copies of Bill in there? or would that lead to it decking itself?
21:37:49 <zzo38> ais523: It would lead to decking itself, and wouldn't help anyways since you can attach only one energy per turn regardless
21:38:01 <ais523> oh, right
21:38:25 <Jafet> Is Pokémon PSPACE complete
21:38:55 <olsner> it's Pokémon-SPACE complete
21:38:59 <ais523> Jafet: it may even be TC; I strongly suspect Magic: the Gathering is
21:39:22 <pikhq> If Magic isn't already TC, then it's merely a couple well-designed cards away.
21:39:24 <fizzie> ais523: I don't think Unicode's stated goal is to accommodate all encoding systems, just all languages/"writing systems"/symbol sets/whatever, and then some compatibility characters for reversible E->Unicode->E round-trip; but the IRC control codes survive the trip already, and moreover they are "presentational" things; I mean, Unicode by design doesn't have any bold/superscript/color-setting things.
21:39:40 <ais523> fizzie: hmm, OK
21:39:43 <zzo38> Not only any card that can poison with one energy, but also any card that can confuse with one energy, has a possibility to win. Poison will probably be more effective here though, unless the player with the card causing confusion/poison has no bench pokemon cards.
21:39:49 <fizzie> E.g. the "Turing Machine" card.
21:39:52 <ais523> it has cat smileys because they're used in text messages on Japanese mobile phones, though
21:40:19 <fizzie> Tap to run a program, or whatever.
21:40:21 <Jafet> ais523: just abuse the private use plane
21:40:23 <zzo38> Unicode does not even have all the Commodore 64 character set
21:40:24 <pikhq> And, yeah, Unicode has *invented* things that are context-specific. (character variant markers)
21:40:26 <ais523> zzo38: wouldn't confusion cause the defence to stop working? so you could damage Mewtwo simply by attacking?
21:40:35 <Jafet> Actually, it's called "private use" because it's for private use
21:40:38 <fizzie> (Game ends if it doesn't halt.)
21:41:10 <zzo38> ais523: It might stop working, but you have a 50% chance to work every turn, otherwise you damage yourself (and it is even weak to itself so twice damaging yourself you lose)
21:41:18 <olsner> Jafet: it's not really private use once you need every phone in japan to cooperate over the all-important cat smileys
21:41:42 <ais523> zzo38: also, why doesn't a two-energy poisoning move work?
21:41:42 <pikhq> zzo38: Funny, I think all of PETSCII is in there.
21:41:51 <Jafet> Private use to japanese phones
21:42:11 <pikhq> Perhaps not in the BMP, though.
21:42:41 <zzo38> But poison will work simply because in a few turns you will lose, regardless of attack/defense. If your opponent has no bench pokemons though, you might still win if you attack.
21:42:52 <pikhq> Hmm, no, some of the graphic glyphs aren't.
21:44:07 <fizzie> ais523: Cat smileys are still "characters", though. They didn't put in colors in the Emoji set either, even though I think it has some.
21:44:19 <zzo38> Other cards that can beat a 59EYE1MEWTWO deck include LASS.
21:44:30 <pikhq> fizzie: Actually, there are a couple glyphs in the Emoji that *are* a specific color.
21:44:31 <ais523> what does Lass do, again?
21:44:40 <pikhq> I think it's something like RED SQUARE and GREEN SQUARE
21:45:22 <fizzie> pikhq: Yes, but I think some of the carrier-specific encodings had arbitrary color-setting codes. Not entirely sure here.
21:45:23 <zzo38> ais523: Both players reveal card in their hand, whichever ones are trainer cards are shuffled into their draw pile.
21:45:40 <pikhq> Hmm.
21:45:46 <ais523> zzo38: oh, just to restock on cards slightly
21:45:58 <fizzie> "# Exclude color and animation details from proposed character names except where necessary for distinction.
21:46:01 <fizzie> # For cases where color is the only source distinction, the convention is to map to BLACK and WHITE where there are two choices, and to BLACK, WHITE, and CHECKERED where there are three, and to BLACK, WHITE, CHECKERED. and STRIPED where there are four.
21:46:04 <fizzie> # Chart annotations will be added to indicate the preferred representations on color devices."
21:46:05 <pikhq> The only control character used for IRC color is U+02
21:46:26 <fizzie> U+03, isn't it?
21:46:43 <pikhq> Blah.
21:46:44 <pikhq> Yes.
21:46:50 <ais523> this line contains a U+02
21:47:13 <fizzie> (Two-digit U+dd looks rather weird, one sort of expects to have at least four.)
21:47:16 <pikhq> AKA "^C"
21:47:33 <pikhq> fizzie: Yeah, well. Most people don't use U+ for ASCII chars. :)
21:47:41 <zzo38> There are other cards that might work but have a very low possibility of working: SLEEP might work, and if you have many DIGGER + RECYCLE + ITEMFINDER then that might work too, but these are all low chances of actually working.
21:48:00 <pikhq> And four-digit U+dddd looks really really weird for ASCII.
21:48:07 <ais523> I think Energy Removal does work if you simply keep attacking while you're doing it
21:48:09 <pikhq> U+0003? I mean, really.
21:48:55 <zzo38> ais523: Not necessarily; it depends on circumstances. But yes, if you are able to keep attacking while doing it, it has a good chance of working.
21:50:05 <zzo38> But I can tell you I did win with the 59EYE1MEWTWO deck when the opponent had (and used) four ENERGY REMOVAL and four SUPER ENERGY REMOVAL, so it won't necessarily beat such a deck.
21:52:24 <fizzie> \U00000003.
21:53:18 <fizzie> Not entirely sure why people went with eight hex digits for \U when six would've been enough. But maybe it's good to be prepared.
21:55:23 <zzo38> Do you know if you have ever done any of things in Pokemon Card of the things that I have listed?
21:55:27 <ais523> hopefully, by the time it reaches the 10FFFFth character, UTF-16 will have died out, and we'll be able to go above that limit
21:55:33 <zzo38> I have done all of them
21:58:09 <fizzie> ais523: The real question is what the added character ranges will be called. (There's the BMP and the Astral Planes; something like Transcendental Planes might work.)
21:58:14 <zzo38> ais523: UTF-8 does support larger numbers than 0x10FFFF although they are not considered valid Unicode characters even in future.
21:58:36 <zzo38> UTF-16 doesn't support such things though
21:58:38 <ais523> I don't think "Astral Planes" is an official name
21:58:43 <fizzie> And the UTF-8 standard was altered to not support them any more.
21:58:54 <fizzie> No, but it's a widespread one.
21:59:21 <zzo38> fizzie: No it still does; they are simply not allowed in Unicode text files and anything Unicode. If you are encoding arbitrary numbers you can still use it.
22:00:05 -!- Chef___ has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:00:10 <fizzie> zzo38: No. The latest UTF-8 RFC, 3629, says the longest encoding is four bytes.
22:01:06 <zzo38> fizzie: I know that. But it is not relevant to what I am trying to say.
22:02:15 <fizzie> It's not UTF-8 if you don't follow the standard, and that RFC is the standard.
22:02:39 <zzo38> I know that too.
22:03:07 <olsner> even limited to four bytes, iirc that gives you a slightly larger range than the valid unicode codepoints
22:03:27 <zzo38> It doesn't mean you cannot make up invalid codes to make up a not-UTF-8 but is otherwise same way
22:03:58 <fizzie> olsner: Well, the "too-high" four-byte sequences aren't UTF-8 either.
22:03:58 <zzo38> It will still be the same encoding, but it encodes arbitrary numbers instead of Unicode texts.
22:04:48 <fizzie> Sure, but you can't call it "UTF-8". (Or, well, I guess you can, but arguably you shouldn't.)
22:05:59 <zzo38> You can call it "UTF-8AN" where "AN" means "Arbitrary Numbers" to mean that all encoded numbers are valid instead of being a Unicode text
22:06:35 <fizzie> (Though I think there's still some standards titled "UTF-8" that are the old way and go up to 2^31.)
22:07:19 <Gregor> UTF-8 extended up to seven bytes has all the same important properties as UTF-8 (although the first byte happens to carry no payload bits), and no conformant UTF-8 reader should have trouble skipping over the unrecognized bytes (although it would have to be configured to actually do that and not just whine)
22:07:41 <pikhq> zzo38: I wouldn't be too surprised if eventually Unicode gets expanded beyond the 21 bit space.
22:08:02 <pikhq> In which case, of course, UTF-8's much encoding space will be quite handy.
22:08:33 <pikhq> Of course, Unicode expanding for that much space will probably take quite a while.
22:08:52 <pikhq> Unless they start trying to encode literally every attested CJK glyph.
22:09:12 <pikhq> (mind you, they're nearly trying to do that already. :P)
22:09:28 <Jafet> There probably haven't been a million ideographs ever invented
22:09:47 <pikhq> Jafet: This would include miswritings.
22:10:16 <Jafet> Probably even those.
22:10:17 <pikhq> Also, it's trivial to invent CJK glyphs.
22:10:33 -!- augur has joined.
22:10:59 <Jafet> Yes, but it's not trivial to get your invented glyph through the consortium!
22:11:23 <Gregor> 🐐 <(Unicode goat begs to differ)
22:11:32 <pikhq> If they start encoding every attested CJK glyph, then it will be trivial.
22:12:36 <zzo38> I think Unicode is full of dumb things though.
22:13:09 <ais523> zzo38: are there any characters you use that aren't in Unicode?
22:13:09 <Jafet> They could make ideograph combining characters
22:13:18 <pikhq> Jafet: They already declined that solution.
22:13:23 <pikhq> Sadly.
22:13:30 <Jafet> Typical.
22:13:54 <fizzie> Maybe they'll rethink when they're running out of space.
22:13:59 <Jafet> I suppose none of them wanted to implement the implied normalisation algorithm.
22:14:01 <pikhq> ais523: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bi%C3%A1ngbi%C3%A1ng_noodles
22:14:06 <fizzie> There's still quite a lot of it.
22:14:30 <ais523> Oracle survey (used as evidence in Oracle v. Google): almost one quarter of people prefer a smartphone costing $200 to an identical smartphone costing $100
22:14:31 <zzo38> ais523: Sometimes. In a few cases the private uses can be used, but I prefer using METAFONT and that stuff
22:14:47 <pikhq> I think that's the only glyph that's simultaneously "common" and not in Unicode.
22:16:07 <ais523> heh
22:16:16 <ais523> it'd be hilarious if a new letter really was invented as a marketing ploy
22:16:17 <olsner> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taito_(kanji) :)
22:16:20 <Phantom_Hoover> Is there even a point to trying to fit the whole Chinese writing system into Unicode?
22:16:21 <ais523> although ideograms aren't exactly "letters"?
22:16:23 <Jafet> ais523: the former name of the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince
22:16:26 <fizzie> The Klingon symbols are sort-of "common".
22:16:32 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: sure; it's so you can communicate in Chinese
22:16:34 <Phantom_Hoover> Unicode just isn't meant to represent that kind of thing, surely?
22:17:00 <Gregor> <ais523> Oracle survey (used as evidence in Oracle v. Google): almost one quarter of people prefer a smartphone costing $200 to an identical smartphone costing $100 // additionally, another quarter of people prefer a smartphone costing $200 but discounted to $100 to an identical one costing $100 in the first place.
22:17:14 <Jafet> pikhq already mentioned that they declined to do that
22:17:15 <Phantom_Hoover> It's built around representing things as characters, but the Chinese system doesn't use characters in that sense.
22:17:16 <pikhq> ais523: They more correctly map to morphemes.
22:17:28 <ais523> Gregor: but the survey asked an assumption that all else was useless
22:17:37 <pikhq> Admittedly, this too is *incorrect*, but much less so.
22:17:47 <Jafet> There are only code points for Chinese characters, not character components.
22:17:49 <pikhq> It's more like a morphemic syllabary.
22:17:53 <ais523> anyway, Google are taking this survey result as evidence that the survey is flawed, and that people aren't assuming all else is equal even though the survey told them to
22:18:10 <pikhq> Jafet: Part of the problem is that nobody entirely agrees on how to decompose the characters.
22:18:22 <Phantom_Hoover> Jafet, but that seems kind of like implementing English in Unicode by making each word a character.
22:18:42 <Jafet> Chinese characters are not words.
22:18:50 <Phantom_Hoover> Hence 'kind of'.
22:18:52 <Jafet> Words are made out of one or more characters.
22:18:55 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: If nearly every letter-pair had a variety of ligatures.
22:18:58 <Phantom_Hoover> Jafet, um no.
22:19:03 <pikhq> Phantom_Hoover: And if they encoded English morphemes.
22:19:09 <Phantom_Hoover> Words exist independently of writing.
22:19:14 <Jafet> I'm pretty sure the Unicode consortium is less confused on these matters than you, Phantom_Hoover.
22:19:28 <pikhq> Words are *written with* one or more characters.
22:19:32 -!- audy has left ("Textual IRC Client: http://www.textualapp.com/").
22:19:32 <Jafet> Or than you attribute to them.
22:19:40 <Phantom_Hoover> I'm using words in common usage, not however the Unicode consortium does it.
22:19:56 <pikhq> Chinese language family words are, of course, composed of one or more syllables, and each character maps (generally) to one syllable.
22:20:21 <Phantom_Hoover> I'm not saying they're confused, just voicing a thought in the hope of something interesting coming out of the discussion oh god I sound like kallisti.
22:20:30 <pikhq> ('cept in non-Chinese languages using the glyphs, where each character maps to "oh dear god that's confusing")
22:21:41 <kallisti> Phantom_Hoover: what's the problem? sounds reasonable to me. :D
22:21:53 <pikhq> I'm pretty sure that mapping from Japanese text to reading is AI-complete.
22:22:10 <Phantom_Hoover> It sounds like your constant "I wasn't being stupid, I was just <excuses>."
22:23:08 <oerjan> pikhq: i vaguely recall there's a character that is a non-syllabic r, or something
22:23:46 <oerjan> or is it that it's an actual suffix...
22:24:10 <pikhq> Probably. There's been time for edge cases to evolve.
22:24:21 <Jafet> oerjan: of course, mapping Chinese writing to Chinese speaking is a lost cause.
22:24:41 <pikhq> Jafet: Actually, not particularly.
22:24:56 <pikhq> There's relatively few ambiguities — most glyphs have only one reading.
22:25:32 <pikhq> However, Chinese speech-to-text is probably pretty hard.
22:28:25 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:33:53 <Phantom_Hoover> I love whenever Reddit's progressive, liberal mask slips and they start baying for blood like Daily Mail readers.
22:35:13 <fizzie> Hard, but there's quite a few speakers, so there's markets. (I don't really know what the state-of-the-art there is, but there's certainly papers.)
22:35:30 <pikhq> I'm not entirely sure where the idea that they're progressive and liberal comes from.
22:36:05 <Phantom_Hoover> Themselves.
22:36:12 <pikhq> Seems to me that Reddit spans the range from progressive and liberal to blood-seekers, with most Redditors being morons, and also most of them being relatively young.
22:36:50 <fizzie> Unusurprisingly quite a lot of what comes out there is about acoustic models, and the tones in particular.
22:37:10 <Phantom_Hoover> fizzie, loving your parallel conversation about speakers.
22:47:24 <ais523> so, it turns out that Google is using third-party cookies that would be not accepted by default by IE and Safari, except that it uses methods to get around the restrictions and make them be accepted by default anyway
22:47:42 <ais523> a different method for each
22:48:03 <ais523> I take this as evidence that marketing departments are evil, regardless of the rest of the company
23:09:32 <pikhq> ais523: The "method", such as it is, the header: P3P: CP="This is not a P3P policy! See http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=151657 for more info."
23:09:40 <ais523> pikhq: right
23:10:09 <ais523> and P3P is a Microsoft-specific standard that ignores unknown tokens, so according to P3P, that's equivalent to saying that the cookie won't be used for any purpose at all
23:10:43 <ais523> it'd make more sense to simply not send a P3P header, than send one that says it isn't one
23:10:52 -!- zzo38 has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
