01:09:46 <RocketJSquirrel> Anybody have a recommended IM-over-IRC proxy server?
01:10:06 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: Are there any others than Bitlbee?
01:10:11 <elliott> Just use Pidgin, man.
01:10:47 <RocketJSquirrel> Upon further observation, bitlbee isn't just a service, it's an available server.
01:10:54 <RocketJSquirrel> No idea why I thought it was service-only >_>
01:11:02 <elliott> It sucks, though.
01:11:07 <RocketJSquirrel> Huh.
01:11:23 <RocketJSquirrel> Come to think of it, all I really want is a IM proxy, it doesn't need to be over IRC. An IM BNC is what I want.
01:11:33 <ais523> why a proxy?
01:11:34 <elliott> It's an incredibly leaky abstraction, and the "one big administrative/contact list room" model is just weird.
01:11:40 <ais523> to hide your identity?
01:11:57 <RocketJSquirrel> ais523: Most of the IM services I use suck when you have multiple connections.
01:12:00 <elliott> Especially since "nobody in this room sees anything I say apart from the things I prefix with their name; also only I see anybody else saying anything" is a really, really disorienting thing for an IRC channel to be.
01:12:17 <elliott> ...and I won't even get started on how painful it makes group conversations in protocols that don't have explicit "named" group conversations.
01:12:22 <RocketJSquirrel> ais523: You can't see your outgoing messages from other connections, and frequently even miss incoming messages if another connection has been active more recently.
01:12:35 <ais523> right
01:12:39 <ais523> why do people use IM for anything, again?
01:12:50 <ais523> AFAICT it solves the same problem as IRC, but worse
01:13:26 <RocketJSquirrel> ais523: IRC is channel-oriented, IM is person-oriented. IRC could be a perfectly workable IM protocol, but the clients are tailored for a different kind of communication.
01:13:43 <RocketJSquirrel> Which is why Pidgin is a shitty IRC client and XChat is a shitty IM client.

06:52:09 <ais523> gah, audiophiles: I just observed an argument on proggit where (possibly as a strawman) the argument came up that WAV was better than FLAC because FLAC was digital and WAV stored the uncompressed /analog/ signal
06:52:19 <ais523> but I think the most absurd statements have been edited out
06:53:33 <pikhq> That is wrong in far too many ways.
06:55:05 <ais523> I don't know; unlike most such arguments, it doesn't show ignorance of how compression works
06:55:05 <myndzi> faces
06:55:06 <myndzi> and palms
06:55:15 <ais523> it's a different misconception entirely
06:55:30 <myndzi> well i guess technically anyway
06:55:33 <myndzi> if the wav came from a cd
06:55:48 <myndzi> it stores enough information to reproduce the exact analog signal up to about 44.1khz
06:55:51 <ais523> then the CD wasn't analog, because CDs are digital
06:56:00 <myndzi> er, 22.05? i sorta forget
06:56:06 <ais523> and, hmm, are you sure?
06:56:14 <myndzi> there's an interesting theorem about it
06:56:17 <ais523> you have to take quantization of amplitude into account, not just frequency
06:56:20 <myndzi> one sec, lemme find it
06:56:29 <ais523> the theorem is only to do with frequency, if you're thinking of the same one as me
06:56:47 <myndzi> which one is that?
06:57:14 <ais523> nyquist
06:57:22 <myndzi> ah yes, that's what i was looking for
06:57:32 <pikhq> The quantization error of CDs is utterly unnoticable with dithering, though.
06:57:51 <ion> At a 44.1 kHz sample rate you’ll be able to store a good 22.05 kHz square wave or very bad waveforms in its neighborhood downwards.
06:58:26 <ais523> pikhq: indeed, but that doesn't mean it isn't there, which is relevant in arguments about analog losslessness
06:58:27 <pikhq> ion: At a 44.1 kHz sample rate you'll be able to store a 22.05 kHz frequency exactly, modulo quantization.
06:58:39 <ais523> I'm entirely willing to believe that it's impossible for the human ear to detect
06:59:01 <ais523> (unless the recording was made on the most sensitive microphone in existence, it /is/ possible for a machine to detect)
06:59:28 <myndzi> i suppose i should have said "approaching exact" heh
06:59:30 <myndzi> been a while since i read about it
06:59:39 <myndzi> but to be exact it would have to be calculated out to infinity or some such
06:59:56 <pikhq> It would actually be exact if your samples were real numbers.
07:00:00 * ais523 vaguely wonders how accurate the most sensitive microphone in existence is
07:00:15 <ais523> and how accurate the A-to-D, if any, it's attached to is
07:00:15 <pikhq> The *only* inexactness is coming from the use of bound samples.
07:00:43 <ais523> pikhq: yes, in case someone decides to send a delta function at you or something
07:01:19 <myndzi> yes well, i don't have a firm enough understanding to discuss it, i was only pointing out that even though it's stored digitally, the information is essentially analog ;)
07:01:21 <myndzi> but then so would flac
07:01:40 <myndzi> and obviously this is not to support his argument, just to explain that one might see where he got confused
07:02:07 <pikhq> Anyways. CDDA is about as good at retaining fidelity of the audio as an 8K scan of film would be at retaining the video fidelity.
07:02:20 <pikhq> That is to say, if anyone says they can do better they're probably lying.
07:03:00 <myndzi> sample all the kilohertz
07:03:59 <pikhq> (8K = 4320p)
07:04:45 <ais523> pikhq: hmm, I'm pretty sure there are screens that can show at 4320p with it still possible to make out the individual pixels
07:04:54 <ais523> probably not very many, but I think they exist
07:05:14 <ais523> so it'd be an accurate representation of the film, but perceptably deficient for representing the original scene
07:05:27 <myndzi> that's kind of an incomplete statement
07:05:32 <myndzi> since it rather depends on the physical size of the screen
07:05:46 <pikhq> ais523: Yes, and said screens are probably big enough that you are a mere 3 pixels tall.
07:05:47 <ais523> myndzi: that's my point, there's no limit to how large you could make the screen in theory
07:05:49 <pikhq> :)
07:05:59 <ais523> pikhq: they wouldn't have to be /that/ big
07:06:06 <pikhq> I know, I know.
07:06:14 <myndzi> sure, but if we're talking about fidelity, you can't exactly expect "greater than 1:1" :P
07:06:45 <pikhq> But they'd have to be so large you're basically incapable of seeing the whole screen if you can see the individual pixels.
07:07:40 <ais523> pikhq: agreed
07:07:50 <ais523> whether you'd see the whole thing or make out pixels would depend on how far you were standing from it
07:08:04 <ais523> I'm imagining something around the size of a cinema screen would be enough to make out the pixels if you stood close to it
07:08:21 <ais523> (although obviously your head would block the projector if you tried that on an /actual/ cinema screen, so it'd have to use a different principle
07:08:34 <pikhq> Reverse projection cinema?
07:08:35 <pikhq> :)
07:09:15 <ais523> yep, that could work, and IIRC actually exists, but is quite wasteful of space
07:09:25 <ais523> perhaps you could have two audiences, one on each side of the screen
07:10:44 <pikhq> It'd be a pretty bad idea unless you've got a particularly strange theater.
07:11:31 <pikhq> Perhaps if the seating is an actual stadium.
07:24:56 <ais523> <hypermog> Many, many 3D games were done using less.
07:25:08 <ais523> I initially interpreted that as referring to less(1)
07:25:21 <ais523> and thought that that was indeed quite a primitive tool to make a 3D game with
07:26:05 <pikhq> Quiet.
07:26:10 <pikhq> Erm, quite.
07:27:40 <ais523> can you actually edit things with less, apart from telling it to run vi?
07:27:58 <ais523> or would it just be a case of repeatedly paging through /dev/random until you found the source you needed?
07:30:57 <pikhq> less doesn't have an insert mode, so.
07:31:16 <pikhq> Yeah, can't edit with it.
07:32:54 <pikhq> Unless some smartass does ln -s vi /bin/less
07:34:47 -!- aloril has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds).
07:38:22 <zzo38> I have been told that LP record is better quality than CD and computer and audio tape and so on, but only the first time it is played. After that, it degrades.
07:39:38 <pikhq> They like to tell you that.
07:39:51 <pikhq> A CD has more dynamic range.
07:40:06 <pikhq> (not that it matters much in this age of 1 dB dynamic range)
07:43:16 <pikhq> Basically the only argument in favor of vinyl is that it may have pleasant artifacts.
07:46:32 <zzo38> The other argument in favor of vinyl is the simplicity of a record player; no computer is required to decode anything.
07:47:14 <pikhq> Not an argument in favor of the format's *quality*, but certainly an argument in favor of its use in certain contexts.
07:47:50 -!- aloril has joined.
07:48:09 <zzo38> Yes, I agree; the argument I mention has nothing to do with quality.
07:49:44 <zzo38> Before on this channel, I have discussed annotation monads a bit; but now I think of coannotation comonads as well.
07:53:44 <zzo38> Which makes Maybe to be the annotation monad of () and it makes non-empty list comonad to be the coannotation comonad of [()]
07:54:37 <zzo38> (I think)
07:59:14 <fizzie> Re blocking the screen, there are also some very acute-angle projectors nowadays. Can't seem to find the right Google keywords, but there was an article; it was something ridiculous like 15 degrees or less. Probably not for cinema resolutions, though, since the intended use case was more like meetings and whatever. (Plus probably some loss in image quality due to the large amount of ...
07:59:20 <fizzie> ... perspective correction.)

08:02:55 <ais523> fizzie: I've seen some acute-angle projectors that do a bunch of perspective correction, they're placed on the top of whiteboards, maybe about 30cm or so out

13:20:26 <nortti> azaq23: problems with irc client?
13:37:27 <azaq23> nortti: I had an issue with the gnome desktop environment (couldn't switch between windows anymore, or click on anything which was outside of the interface of the application I had at the time in the
13:37:27 <azaq23> foreground), which forced me to restart it a few times, and with it the irc client I'm using. I suspect it's somehow connected to a jammed key on my touchpad

13:56:14 <elliott> happy mailman mailing list membership reminders day
13:59:36 <elliott> "But now I want to sidetrack into some of Yesod's underlying philosophy, and demonstrate its incompatibility with cabal. Many people know that Yesod is Hebrew for "Foundation." What you may not realize is that it's also a term from Jewish mysticism. Jewish mysticism, also known as Kaballah, includes the concepts of receiving energy from a source."
14:00:54 <ais523> <elliott> happy mailman mailing list membership reminders day <-- it's april 1, and /that's/ the best you can say?
14:02:39 <elliott> ais523: i don't participate in internet jackass day, I just observe from the sidelines

14:04:57 <elliott> ais523: it's more or less complete nonsense
14:05:35 <ais523> the reply is the sort of thing I'd make, it's a perfectly sensible reply to the post whether it's entirely joke or entirely serious you don't understand or serious disguised as joke
14:05:49 <elliott> ais523: it proposes using /youtube URLs/ as identifiers
14:05:55 <elliott> taking it seriously is unforgivable
14:05:58 <ais523> yes, I noticed that in a footnote
14:06:03 <elliott> no, an appendix
14:06:25 <elliott> I was about to say that the best parts were footnote 4 and appendix A, but then I realised that footnotes 1-1b and all the other appendices were good too

14:31:08 <elliott> APRIL FEUELZ!!!112156123786127836123
14:31:13 <elliott> (you might need to ctrl+f5 it)
14:31:41 <ais523> you can do that with CSS?
14:31:57 <elliott> yep
14:31:58 <ais523> heh, and it even affects edit pages
14:32:07 <elliott> yes, which made it quite hard to fix a css error i made the first time
14:32:16 <elliott> buttons look really weird upside-down
14:32:28 <ais523> I'm using useskin=monobook to read the code ;)
14:33:04 <elliott> upside-down english looks kinda like ipa
14:33:16 <ais523> I wonder how long it would take for that to be reverted if someone did it on Wikipedia
14:33:19 <ais523> I'm guessing between 1 and 3 minutes
14:33:38 <elliott> and then five years of arbitration cases
14:33:49 <elliott> I suppose I should remove this now
14:33:57 <elliott> in case anyone actually wants to read the wiki
14:34:07 <ais523> heh, OK ;)
14:35:26 <elliott> oh, I have a better idea
14:36:30 <elliott> ais523: try now
14:37:16 <ais523> more usable, indeed
14:37:26 <ais523> and potentially even useful for non-English languages
14:37:32 <elliott> I think I'll leave it like this for a day
14:37:37 <elliott> indeed, it reminds me of the hebrew wikipedia
14:37:47 <elliott> (note: technically this isn't an april fool's, just me fucking with things, since it's after 12pm)
14:38:08 <ais523> it's before 12pm in some places!

14:40:13 <elliott> ais523: I don't suppose there is any easy way to fix the caching of vector.css
14:40:15 <elliott> rather ruins it
14:40:46 <ais523> elliott: I'm reasonably sure there's a configuration variable /somewhere/ which invalidates everyone's caches when you bump it
14:40:52 <ais523> but I never dealt with that bit of things
14:40:57 <ais523> the devs could be made to bump it in emergencies
14:41:13 <ais523> (it uses the old junk query parameter trick)
14:43:49 <elliott> oh well
14:43:55 <elliott> nortti: does http://esolangs.org/wiki/Main_Page look normal to you?
14:44:01 <elliott> maybe it's just because i was already on the site that it didn't reload or something
14:45:06 <elliott> "1997 – Marriage in the Netherlands became more samey." -- come on WIkipedia, you can do better than this
14:45:49 <ais523> elliott: oh, fun fact, you know how Wikipedia's main page is based on date templates?
14:45:57 <ais523> well, they don't update automatically, someone has to purge the page
14:46:03 <ais523> and today: it was me who did the purge :)
14:46:18 <elliott> has anyone ever forgotten to?
14:47:10 -!- hagb4rd has quit (Quit: hagb4rd).
14:47:13 <ais523> well, it'd require /everyone/ to
14:47:18 <ais523> especially as it can be done while not logged in
14:47:34 <ais523> (although there's a clickthrough for that, to stop scrapers doing it unintentionally)
14:47:36 <elliott> if only purges were logged, so people could race and use it to start drama
14:47:41 <ais523> haha
14:50:58 <nortti> elliott: pretty funny text effect
14:51:18 <elliott> oh, so it does work without force-reloading?
14:51:20 <elliott> interesting
14:51:47 <elliott> OK, that's my minimum level of contribution for April 1st done
14:52:11 <elliott> ais523: what's slashdot's?

15:39:04 <elliott> lol
15:39:05 <elliott> olsner: does it recognise the "transform"?
15:39:08 <elliott> even if it doesn't recognise the -o-transform
15:40:46 <olsner> looks like it's spelled rotate in -o-transform
15:41:34 <elliott> olsner: eh?
15:41:35 <olsner> according to http://www.opera.com/docs/specs/presto24/css/transforms/ anyway
15:41:50 <elliott> oh, they don't support rotateY?
15:42:16 <elliott> oh! apparently neither does mozilla
15:42:19 <elliott> uh bu
15:42:19 <elliott> t
15:42:21 <elliott> it works in ff, so
15:42:27 <elliott> confused
15:42:35 <olsner> maybe ff picks up the webkit transform instead
15:42:49 <elliott> oh, but
15:42:50 <elliott> "matrix(<number>, <number>, <number>, <number>, <number>, <number>)
15:42:50 <elliott> Specifies a 2D transformation in the form of a transformation matrix of six values. matrix(a,b,c,d,e,f) is equivalent to applying the transformation matrix [a b c d e f]."

15:43:06 <elliott> it's sunday, day of rest
15:43:08 <elliott> day of doing nothing
15:47:04 <olsner> I'm not quite sure what the transform is supposed to do though... is that rotateY thing the same as scaleX(-1)?
15:47:15 <olsner> because that works with -o-transform
15:48:02 <olsner> and yeah, opera doesn't do 3D transforms (yet?), only the 2D transforms
15:48:34 <elliott> olsner: it's meant to flip the page horizontally
15:48:43 <elliott> and it's not 3d
15:49:04 <olsner> rotating around the Y axis means rotating it in 3d?
15:49:35 <elliott> well, you could say that... or it's just subtracting the coordinate from the width
15:49:43 <elliott> it's not the "3d transform" stuff
15:50:00 <elliott> yes, scaleX(-1) does it, thanks
15:50:00 <olsner> rotateY is a 3d transform
15:50:33 <elliott> ais523: olsner: nortti: try now

16:14:01 <ais523> elliott: abort, ignore, retry, fail?
16:14:22 <elliott> what was the difference between abort and fail, anyway
16:14:51 <nortti> elliott: If I remember corretly fail stopped the running program
16:19:30 <Deewiant> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/67586
16:20:34 <elliott> Deewiant: Okay, that makes sense
16:20:42 <elliott> So retry and fail are the only sane ones
16:23:32 <ais523> elliott: actually, abort stopped the running program; fail caused the libc or equivalent to return a failure code
16:23:45 <ais523> ignore caused it to return a success code, and retry is obvious
16:24:39 <elliott> ais523: Yes, that's what Deewiant's link said.
16:24:58 <ais523> oh, that was from memory, I didn't follow the link

16:32:22 <elliott> ais523: OK, this is the best article title on Wikipedia, no question
16:33:03 <ais523> there's a huge debate about what to do about april 1's "on this day"
16:33:11 <ais523> because of legitimate events happening on april 1 never getting a chance
16:33:19 <ais523> I think the conclusion was to list the events but with silly descriptions
16:33:32 <elliott> please! please, no discussion that isn't about that perfect title
16:34:33 <ais523> you should read the article attached to it, the event is vaguely ridiculous too

18:35:19 <elliott> THE OTHER ONE I MEAN
18:35:23 <elliott> THE OTHER KIND OF ESOTERIC
18:36:42 <elliott> YES I FIXED THAT
18:36:44 <elliott> PERMANENTLY
18:37:12 <oerjan> oh.
18:37:30 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: ps april fooles
18:37:35 <elliott> oerjan: well does it still look normal
18:38:05 <oerjan> yes, it does.
18:38:35 <elliott> oerjan: try Ctrl-F5
18:39:20 <oerjan> still no difference
18:39:48 <elliott> ie version?
18:40:29 <oerjan> ie 8
18:40:49 <oerjan> (which afaik is the latest which works with xp, btw)
18:41:12 <elliott> ok, gimme a minute
18:41:27 <elliott> no peeking until i fix :p
18:42:53 <elliott> oerjan: ok try ctrl+f5 now
18:43:43 <elliott> wait i think i messed it up
18:44:13 <elliott> oerjan: try now
18:44:34 <oerjan> there is at least a difference now ... the background color is changed and the scrollbar doesn't work :P
18:44:45 <oerjan> or pgdn
18:44:52 <elliott> huh, what happens to the background?
18:45:16 <oerjan> same as the sidebar now
18:45:26 <elliott> hmm
18:45:28 <elliott> a screenshot, please?
18:45:37 <elliott> I'm going by MS' documentation, which might be wrong
18:45:59 * elliott installs IE in Wine to test it himself

18:46:31 <ais523> elliott: ies4linux?
18:46:47 <elliott> ais523: unmaintained IIRC
18:46:54 <elliott> I think winetricks can do it
18:47:50 <elliott> oerjan: a screenshot would still be useful, though
18:48:30 <oerjan> thank you, omploader for today's front page (nsfw)
18:49:05 <oerjan> http://ompldr.org/vZDg0bg/screenshot.PNG
18:49:45 <elliott> i think it just lists the most-accessed files
18:49:55 <elliott> oerjan: thanks
18:49:56 <oerjan> ...i guess.
18:50:23 <oklofok> nsfw?
18:50:30 <ais523> not safe for work
18:50:33 <oerjan> very much so
18:50:36 <oklofok> am i missing midget porn somewher
18:50:38 <oklofok> e in the pic
18:50:42 <elliott> hmmm
18:50:56 <elliott> oerjan: it looks ok in my wine-installed ie8, but i suspect it might be using gecko
18:51:01 <oerjan> it's porn indeed, i couldn't tell if it was midgets.
18:51:20 <elliott> let me try ies4linux
18:51:45 <elliott> oh, ies4linux only goes up to 5
18:51:46 <elliott> 6
18:51:58 <elliott> and doesn't work with latest wine
18:52:44 <elliott> oerjan: (i can disable it for now if you want to browse the wiki)
18:52:58 <oerjan> oklofok: oh i wasn't linking to the porn, that's on ompldr's front page
18:53:28 <elliott> oerjan keeps all his midget porn to himself
18:53:33 <oklofok> okay no midgets there

18:54:21 <zzo38> elliott: Can you tell me how to spirit project a computer?
18:54:23 <elliott> i've removed it temporarily, lemme fix this
18:54:34 <elliott> `WELCOME ZZO38
18:54:39 <elliott> zzo38: This is a very frequently asked question, check our wiki for more information!
18:56:54 <zzo38> It mentions nothing about how to spirit project a computer. (Searching for the term "computer" leads to no results)
18:57:04 <oerjan> elliott: heh are you trying to make it mirrored? the yafgc webcomic did that today too (although only to the comic itself and the title)
18:57:17 <elliott> oerjan: I said no peeking >:(
18:57:42 -!- augur has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
18:57:58 <oerjan> elliott: erm ok. i had already clicked on the history diff so it was open in a tab
18:58:14 <elliott> That counts as peeking :P
18:58:20 <oerjan> OKAY
18:58:33 * elliott tries IE7 instead
18:59:13 <elliott> well that failed
19:00:08 <elliott> ais523: hey, do you have any IE?
19:00:19 <ais523> I have IE6, but don't use it while connected to the internet
19:01:08 <elliott> oerjan: You know, Chrome and Firefox are pretty nice...
19:01:19 <oerjan> YOU DON'T SAY
19:03:11 <elliott> oerjan: ok could you try now (this is just a test version to see what happens)
19:04:02 <oerjan> background still different, but scrollbar works now :P
19:04:09 <elliott> oerjan: and now?
19:04:25 <oerjan> no difference
19:04:46 <elliott> oh hm
19:05:12 <elliott> try now
19:05:28 <oerjan> *yawn*
19:05:53 <elliott> what
19:05:58 <oerjan> no difference
19:06:05 <elliott> hey it's not my fault IE is weird
19:07:02 <oerjan> hey it doesn't have to be IE's fault. maybe it interprets _several_ of those transforms i shouldn't peek at, and there are an even number so they cancel out
19:07:14 * oerjan trusting
19:09:54 <elliott> oerjan: ok try *now*
19:10:47 <oerjan> a true master of indistinguishible subtlety
19:10:51 <oerjan> *a
19:11:26 <oerjan> oh hm
19:11:28 <elliott> fine, i give up. your browser is completely broken. it obeys neither the specification, nor its own documentation
19:11:36 <oerjan> i checked another page, the language list.
19:11:44 <elliott> you *were* ctrl+f5ing all this time, right?
19:11:55 <oerjan> yes, i think so.
19:12:10 <elliott> ok what does the language list look like
19:12:21 <oerjan> anyway, the page looks _almost_ normal, except for the small detail that the title is at the bottom, upside down.
19:12:46 <elliott> wtf.
19:12:54 <elliott> screenshot?
19:12:58 <oerjan> since the main page has no title, i didn't notice it there :P
19:13:03 <elliott> (and is there a space where the title should be at the top?)
19:13:25 <oerjan> yes there is
19:14:15 <elliott> yeah, screenshot pls :P
19:14:20 <elliott> this is weird
19:17:05 <oerjan> http://imgur.com/tQIHz
19:18:27 <elliott> well
19:18:28 <elliott> that's impressive
19:20:05 <elliott> oerjan: ok i just changed the effect to something else for IE < 9.
19:20:09 <elliott> maybe *that* will work.
19:22:13 <elliott> does it? :P
19:23:06 <oerjan> nothing noticeable
19:23:36 <elliott> oh well.
19:23:49 <elliott> guess you'll just have to live without any fancy tricks
19:23:54 * oerjan guesses him using IE 8 is the universe's april fool's joke on elliott
19:24:36 -!- nortti_ has joined.
19:26:20 <elliott> you're the one suffering
19:28:27 <oerjan> always.
19:31:10 <oklofok> i still prefer ie over firefox, although i have to admit chrome is the nicest invention in the world. because you can drag and drop tabs.
19:31:41 <olsner> (opera has had drag-and-drop tabs since like forever)
19:31:59 <nortti_> oklofok: You can do that on firefox
19:32:03 <oklofok> well i haven't tried it
19:32:06 <oklofok> okay
19:32:17 <oklofok> so i guess if i tried everything now, ie would finally lose
19:32:30 <elliott> olsner: opera users are so cute
19:32:31 <oklofok> (except for the fact it's much more stable than firefox in my experience)
19:32:33 <olsner> elliott: :)
19:32:42 <elliott> olsner: enjoy ur market share
19:33:06 <nortti_> oklofok: when did you try firefox
19:33:40 <oklofok> nortti: a couple of years ago
19:34:09 <oklofok> i used to use ie until it did something annoying, and then switched to firefox until it did something annoying
19:34:20 <oklofok> and then back to ie
19:34:39 <nortti_> oklofok: Try it again. Firefox 3.* was terrible
19:34:43 <oklofok> but it usually took less than a day for firefox to do something stupid so finally i stopped using it
19:35:14 <oklofok> then at some point i tried chrome but on my laptop, all of its options windows were too big for my screen, and i couldn't close them
19:35:48 <oklofok> but i have a big screen now, and chrome hasn't done anything annoying since i bought this computer
19:35:51 <elliott> firefox 2 was terrible too, as far as memory usage/stability goes.
19:35:52 <oklofok> so for over half a year
19:36:22 <elliott> oklofok: funny, since chrome doesn't actually use pref windows any more
19:37:01 <oklofok> why is that funny?
19:37:26 <oklofok> and obviously i know since it's the only browser i use
19:37:41 <elliott> well, it's funny if you bought the new computer to run chrome
19:37:43 <nortti_> elliott: I had no problem with it. I actually maintained a version of Iceweasel 2 up to 2011 and then I switched to Iceweasel 4
19:37:45 <elliott> you haven't said otherwise so i'll assume you did
19:37:55 <oklofok> :D
19:38:39 <oklofok> yeah i paid 2000 euros for a computer so i could try a browser that did something extremely annoying during the first minute i tried it.
19:38:54 <oklofok> i'm just that oklo.
19:39:47 <nortti_> oklofok: You can get computer that can run Chrome for 10€
19:40:25 <oklofok> so just to make things clear, i was prefectly happy with ie, i bought this computer _for no reason_.
19:40:44 <oklofok> and i decided to try chrome again for lulz. but turned out it was awesome.

19:41:46 <elliott> bet it runs minecraft better than your older one
19:42:53 <oklofok> it does
19:43:07 <oklofok> when i tried minecraft i was like what the fuck I CAN SEE MOUNTAINS
19:43:17 <oklofok> PHOTO FUCKING REALISM
19:43:43 <elliott> http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/data-ordlist/0.4.5/doc/html/Data-List-Ordered.html oh, there's a package for this!
19:43:52 <oklofok> and i can open like *two* minesweepers at once
19:44:35 <hagb4rd> have you already tried the 8 bit version of google maps? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF8BsdGaK3c
19:44:35 <zzo38> My DVI typesetting stuff in Haskell seem to do glue setting wrong. Is findBreaks wrong? findBreaks True f (h : t) | isJust (castNode h :: Maybe GlueNode) = ((\(x, y, z) -> (succ x, addGlue y (fst $ f h), z)) <$> findBreaks (isNodeDiscardable h) f t); findBreaks b f (h : t) = maybe id (\x -> ((0, fixedGlue 0, x) :)) (snd $ f h) ((\(x, y, z) -> (succ x, addGlue y (fst $ f h), z)) <$> findBreaks (isNodeDiscardable h) f t);
19:45:09 <elliott> i don't know
19:46:26 <nortti_> my browser history goes something like this: IE6 -> Firefox 2 -> Firefox 3 -> Firebird -> K-Meleon -> Iceweasel 2 with patches -> Konqueror, Iceweasel 2 with patches, Links2 -> Iceweasel 4, Links2 -> TenFourFox 5-11, Camino, Links2

19:48:12 <elliott> pffft, I used Firefox before you!
19:49:54 * oerjan used NCSA Mosaic so there
19:51:24 <elliott> Well, fuck you, I used WorldWideWeb.
19:51:32 <elliott> Or at least I tried to. Once.
19:51:53 <oerjan> okay.
19:52:15 <oklofok> i used ie before it was cool
19:52:17 <oklofok> on my windows 3.11
19:53:16 <elliott> the first web browser i used was either ie 5.something or ie 6.
19:53:31 <zzo38> Does this findBreaks looks wrong?
19:53:43 <hagb4rd> ie6 is the worst browser ever
19:54:29 <hagb4rd> at least you need all kind of hacks to make your site support it
19:55:05 <zzo38> hagb4rd: If you are just using simple HTML stuff it should be support in anything
