00:09:09 <oerjan> hi drama
00:09:13 <shachaf> hi oerjan
00:12:36 <elliott> kmc: How come there's so much C++ programmer/Haskell programmer overlap?
00:13:44 <shachaf> elliott: There is?
00:13:55 <shachaf> Most C++ programmers have probably never heard of Haskell.
00:13:56 <elliott> Yes.
00:14:09 <elliott> Well, a lot of Haskellers also do C++, at least.
00:14:21 <shachaf> Well, C++ is a very popular language.
00:14:25 <shachaf> But I don't even know if that is true.
00:15:03 <elliott> Well, a lot of SO people who answer Haskell questions also answer C++ questions? WORK WITH ME HERE
00:15:38 <shachaf> I think SO questions are just karma-crazy.
00:16:07 <shachaf> There are a few strategies for karma: Answer specialized questions like Haskell questions, or answer mainstream questions like C++.
00:16:16 <shachaf> Probably people do some of both.
00:16:46 <elliott> I gather answering C or C++ questions doesn't get you much rep because of the high turnover rate.

02:15:33 <shachaf> elliott: I heard kmc bought a computer at a BRICK AND MORTAR STORE.
02:15:48 <shachaf> I guess he's neither ESR nor PG.
02:15:58 <shachaf> Unless, wait, was it an Apple store?
02:16:00 <kmc> no
02:16:11 <zzo38> What is ESR and PG?
02:16:32 <shachaf> No one really knows.
02:16:44 <shachaf> kmc: Is it the new Thinkpad you were waiting for?
02:17:03 <kmc> no
02:17:17 <elliott> kmc only starts talking when shachaf talks to him :'(
02:17:24 <kmc> it's a refurb thinkpad for $250
02:17:44 <kmc> cause i had no working laptop at all
02:17:53 <shachaf> What happened to your other working laptop?
02:19:18 <oerjan> elliott: what we need is a shachaf simulator
02:19:52 <elliott> We have one.
02:19:54 <elliott> He's called shachaf.
02:20:08 <elliott> Hmph, I was hoping oerjan would take care of that [[Tiny]] edit.
02:20:21 <oerjan> ...i have no idea what that meant, so no.
02:20:32 <kmc> the X200s has a cracked screen and is now in many pieces as part of a failed attempt to resolve this
02:20:41 <kmc> the old T61 has hella problems but the dealbreaker is that the fan doesn't work anymore
02:20:58 <kmc> so i bought a new refurb T61
02:21:18 <elliott> oerjan: http://esolangs.org/w/index.php?title=Tiny&curid=1810&diff=31902&oldid=30619
02:21:32 <kmc> thinking (inter alia) that if things go wrong with it, I can grab parts from the old T61
02:21:38 <kmc> i already cannibalized the RAM
02:21:39 <oerjan> elliott: i didn't say i didn't see it, i said i didn't know what it meant
02:21:49 <shachaf> kmc: I didn't know you could buy ThinkPads in brick-and-mortar stores.
02:21:55 <kmc> yeah, MicroCenter has some
02:22:00 <shachaf> (...I thought the main things they sold was brick and mortar.)
02:22:03 <shachaf> (...Sorry.)
02:22:06 <kmc> HA HA HA HA HA
02:22:19 <shachaf> No, but I really didn't.
02:22:21 <kmc> you can also get refurb machines online but I think the advantage is not so great
02:22:40 <kmc> and i wanted this quickly because i am leaving town in less than a week
02:22:40 <shachaf> I bought this laptop refurbished online.
02:22:50 <shachaf> Where are you going?
02:22:58 <kmc> i like that, if MicroCenter's refurb laptop turns out to be not so furbished after all, I can return it by walking down the street
02:23:57 <shachaf> Is this the MicroCenter people at BosHac told me to go to?
02:24:05 <kmc> flying to SF, taking the train to LA, riding in a car out to Coachella for the eponymous music festival
02:24:07 <kmc> yes this makes no sense
02:24:14 <kmc> maybe?
02:24:22 <kmc> it's a computer store in cambridge (and some other places)
02:24:22 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Good night).
02:24:54 <shachaf> elliott: Have you ever been to cambridge (and some other places too)?
02:25:07 <kmc> shachaf, has anyone ever been etc
02:25:22 * shachaf has been etc
02:25:34 <shachaf> kmc: The part that makes no sense is that you're not going to SF by train.
02:26:22 <kmc> from Boston??
02:27:03 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
02:27:05 <shachaf> Think of the legroom!
02:27:50 <kmc> it takes /forever/
02:27:54 <kmc> and would cost more
02:28:24 <shachaf> Flying costs more of your soul.
02:28:31 <kmc> kind of
02:28:34 <kmc> i don't actually mind flying
02:28:51 <kmc> the carbon footprint is not great, but it's still public transit of sorts
02:29:04 <shachaf> Why are you going through SF?
02:29:07 <kmc> everything about flying sucks, except the part where you're actually in the air
02:29:41 <kmc> so it's proportionally better on longer trips
02:29:44 <shachaf> Usually I'm stuck on a chair inside the airplane instead of in the air. :-(
02:29:55 <kmc> HA HA HA HA HA
02:30:23 <shachaf> I think that must be some sort of subtle cue about something...
02:30:23 <kmc> so my friends who live in SF, LA, and SD are going to Coachella
02:30:24 <elliott> Does flying really count as public transport?
02:31:14 <kmc> Coachella is much closer to those cities than to Boston
02:31:51 <kmc> so I needed to buy plane tickets long before I could get any of them to figure out their transpo plans
02:31:57 <kmc> so I reduced to a solved problem
02:32:06 <kmc> by flying to/from where one of my friends would be starting
02:32:10 <shachaf> I guess that works.
02:32:14 <kmc> Boston to SF is also a very cheap route
02:32:22 <kmc> per mile anyway
02:32:37 <elliott> Wait, isn't LA on the other side of USillyA to SF?
02:32:44 <elliott> I... don't know much about USillyA geography.
02:32:47 <kmc> LA = Los Angeles, not Louisiana
02:32:54 <elliott> I knew that. :(
02:33:00 <elliott> Well, you learn something every day.
02:33:02 <elliott> Wait, I knew that.
02:33:11 <shachaf> SFO->SEA is cheaper than SFO->PDX.
02:33:13 <kmc> and I can be more flexible about dates if I fly to/from SF, because I have places I can stay there
02:33:21 <elliott> I think I was thinking the USA had, like, a left, a right, and a third thing.
02:33:47 <shachaf> That's pretty much how it works.
02:33:49 <elliott> I... am quite tired.
02:33:49 <kmc> SF is like 600 km north of LA; they're both in California, which is on the west coast
02:34:00 <kmc> California is a big state
02:34:06 <shachaf> 600km?
02:34:08 <shachaf> Hmm, I guess it is.
02:34:09 <elliott> Yes, I realised that about 15 seconds after I asked.
02:34:18 <elliott> The UK is much simpler :(
02:34:32 <shachaf> I've yet to make any sense of the UK.
02:34:39 <kmc> elliott, I would call commercial airlines "public transportation", yes
02:35:09 <kmc> the term does not imply government-affiliated
02:35:30 <elliott> Hmm.
02:35:41 <elliott> Right, I associated "public transport" with "public" as in state-run.
02:35:45 <kmc> lots of bus and train routes around the world are fully private
02:35:51 <kmc> many others are weird hybrids
02:35:51 <elliott> But then our trains aren't really "state-run" here either.

02:36:34 -!- Mathnerd314 has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
02:36:59 <shachaf> The UK has really weird place names.
02:37:05 <elliott> I wonder how many people just never ask and go away with a significantly tarnished view of Conal.
02:37:06 <shachaf> Like New Castle Upon Thyme.
02:37:08 <kmc> in britain they sold off the right to run the trains, and sold off the infrastructure separately, and then kind of gradually bought them back in weird ways
02:37:32 -!- Mathnerd314 has joined.
02:37:48 <kmc> (they = govt)
02:38:10 * elliott appreciates kmc's train wisdom.
02:38:16 <kmc> thanks elliott
02:38:18 <kmc> thelliott
02:38:19 <elliott> Trisdom.
02:38:25 <elliott> I was typing that before you said that.
02:38:30 <kmc> you're psychic
02:38:35 <elliott> No, that's you. :(
02:38:42 <kmc> i knew you would say that
02:38:42 <shachaf> Tʜᴇᴍ
02:38:56 <elliott> Also, 16:40:45: <elliott> kmc: that "replacement for SSH" wording + "uses SSH for login" is really confusing people
02:39:02 <kmc> yeah
02:39:10 <kmc> do you suggest a better way to deal?
02:39:15 <shachaf> Rename SSH.
02:39:22 <elliott> Maybe it should say "replacement for interactive ssh"?
02:39:31 <shachaf> Replacement for ssh -t
02:39:36 <elliott> Something that implies it's the actual terminally bits it's replacing, not ssh itself.
02:39:51 <shachaf> Except it's replacing more than that.
02:39:59 <shachaf> It does have its own protocol, after all.
02:40:13 <shachaf> Wouldn't want people to be overtrusting of it, would you.
02:40:32 <kmc> shachaf, some people are worried about what if Mosh drops a UDP packet while I'm typing "rm *foo\n" and it gets "rm *\n"
02:40:51 <elliott> kmc: Doesn't it sequentialise those properly?
02:40:53 <kmc> it does
02:41:00 <elliott> Those people are silly, then.
02:41:08 <kmc> i guess it is not common knowledge that one can implement a reliable protocol on top of UDP
02:41:13 <kmc> or that reliable protocols other than TCP exist
02:41:20 <elliott> You have to bake it into the ethernet cable itself.
02:41:23 <elliott> See, UDP is just like this big open hole.
02:41:26 <kmc> we've also been accused of "reinventing TCP" on this grounds
02:41:32 <elliott> But TCP has a bunch of gates to make sure everything goes through in the right order.
02:41:52 <elliott> I get the feeling everyone is sick of TCP nowdays.
02:41:54 <shachaf> kmc: You should invent a protocol that lets you send fds over the network.
02:42:02 <kmc> because TCP is like the platonic ideal of a reliable protocol, and there is no way you could ever do better even with total application domain knowledge
02:42:13 <kmc> I kind of think we should describe the Mosh protocol as more akin to video streaming
02:42:25 <kmc> if a packet drops, the server doesn't resend you that exact packet stream again
02:42:27 <shachaf> TCP is pretty good at what it does, to be fair.
02:42:38 <kmc> it tries to get you up to date as directly as possible
02:43:08 <shachaf> Well, for live video.
02:43:12 <elliott> kmc: Have you tried any of those ANSI films over mosh?
02:43:36 <shachaf> ANSI has gotten into the film business?
02:44:00 <pikhq> TCP could be better.
02:44:46 <elliott> shachaf: There's that Star Wars-over-telnet thing.
02:47:31 <kmc> i haven't elliott
02:47:33 <kmc> i should
02:48:04 <elliott> Everyone should elliott.
02:52:22 <kmc> shouldn't "apt-get -f" be named "apt-get -un-f"
02:52:45 -!- augur has joined.
02:53:21 <elliott> no
02:53:24 <kmc> shachaf, well, Keith's actual graduate research is in improving TCP, so I think he thinks it can be improved :)
02:54:01 <shachaf> kmc: Oh, I'm sure it can.
02:54:53 <kmc> i'm not sure it's even "pretty good"
02:54:58 <kmc> for the Internet as it exists today
02:55:01 <shachaf> Right.
02:55:05 <kmc> it deals very poorly with non-congestive losses
02:55:07 <kmc> which are common on radio
02:55:22 <kmc> so link layer protocol designers sometimes go to great lengths to hide those
02:55:24 <shachaf> But just the fact that it's from ~1974 and it actually works is pretty good.
02:55:27 <elliott> Nobody has yet been able to adequately explain to me why the internet works.
02:55:37 <elliott> AFAICT, it shouldn't. Actually, AFAICT it doesn't.
02:55:39 <kmc> we can maybe blame TCP for bufferbloat too
02:55:40 <kmc> i don't know
02:55:49 <elliott> But then it all goes and works and I don't know how or why. :(
02:55:50 <shachaf> I thought we were blaming buffers for that.
02:56:34 <elliott> shachaf: Does the internet work?
02:57:17 <elliott> 628...
02:58:19 <shachaf> elliott: I think the answer involves pictures of cats.

13:45:49 <RocketJSquirrel> Phantom_Hoover: Is it because you think that the uncooked junk you eat in the UK is bacon?
13:46:05 <Phantom_Hoover> Hahahahaha, stupid American.
13:46:07 <RocketJSquirrel> Phantom_Hoover: Or because there's better bacon in continental Europe than either of us, which is true.
13:46:44 <Phantom_Hoover> How would you know, you don't taste.
13:47:40 <RocketJSquirrel> Of course, brits don't know how to cook eggs, either.
13:47:55 <RocketJSquirrel> Actually, your whole breakfast selection is a lesson in poor cooking.
13:48:25 <Phantom_Hoover> What are you talking about, you people can't even make toast properly.
13:48:30 <Phantom_Hoover> It's toast, for fuck's sake.

13:53:24 <RocketJSquirrel> I'm honestly unsure what you mean by that, but it's ironic that you'd mention it tsince to cook eggs you fucking COOK EGGS.

14:00:30 <RocketJSquirrel> And the fact that you describe it that way means that the {over,under} {hard,medium,easy} system is meaningless to you.

14:55:54 <nortti> oh my ${DEITY}. Hv3 web browser is amazingly fast
15:00:51 <RocketJSquirrel> nortti: http://codu.org/websplat/ g'luck
15:06:47 <nortti> doesn't work
15:08:01 <RocketJSquirrel> THEN YOUR BROWSER IS MADE OF FAIL
15:08:30 <nortti> it runs on computer with 64MB of RAM
15:11:04 <nortti> and passes both Acid 1 and 2
15:12:46 <RocketJSquirrel> If it can't run WebSplat, it is not useful.
15:13:40 <nortti> what about lynx, links2 and netsurf?
15:14:10 <RocketJSquirrel> Yuck, yuck, never used it but presumably yuck.
15:14:25 <RocketJSquirrel> I've considered writing a curses backend for WebKit, but (thank jebus) never followed through :)
15:14:39 <nortti> what is wrong with them
15:15:47 <RocketJSquirrel> If you want to go download some code from a project, they're super.
15:16:02 <RocketJSquirrel> If you want to replace your web browser with them, then you will live in a very small, sad version of the web.
15:16:29 <RocketJSquirrel> It's similar to the small, sad version of the web that people like ais523 who use JS blockers live in.
15:16:46 <ais523> RocketJSquirrel: websplat works fine for me
15:17:02 <RocketJSquirrel> Yeah, once you tweak the appropriate knob to accept it ;)
15:17:12 <ais523> RocketJSquirrel: I didn't even have to do that, it was pre-tweaked
15:17:20 <ais523> presumably I'd found reason to whitelist codu.org some time in the past
15:17:28 <nortti> I tried using Midori on this machine. After it had loaded its homepage form 10 mins I killed it
15:17:37 <RocketJSquirrel> Because codu.org has only the most awesome of JS code 8-D
15:17:44 <ais523> anyway, I find that something like 90-95% of websites don't meaningfully benefit from JS
15:17:54 <nortti> and hv3 has ECMAScript support
15:18:10 <ais523> and in a significant fraction of the ones that would theoretically benefit from JS, the JS is written so badly that they're better off without it
15:18:16 <nortti> it is just turned off by default and that is good thing
15:18:20 <RocketJSquirrel> ais523: Heh, that's true ^^
15:18:49 <ais523> although, what I'm most annoyed at is websites that intentionally break blocked-JS; not as in not degrading gracefully, but as in specifically making a <noscript> tag that breaks the site and the site works fine if you use firebug to get rid of it
15:20:43 <nortti> yeah. That's fucking stupid

16:44:51 <ais523> elliott: gah, it's not wrong /enough/ to not be confusing
16:46:23 <Mathnerd314> so my post would be: "The simplest explanation I can give for monads is that they take a basic data type and wrap it. This results in a new type."
16:47:22 <elliott> Mathnerd314: no, it's not
16:47:27 <elliott> oh
16:47:30 <elliott> that was not the s// you sai
16:47:31 <elliott> d
16:47:39 <elliott> anyway "wrap it" implies "the result contains it"
16:47:54 <elliott> s/monad/comonad/ might be the easiest way to make it not totally wrong :)
16:53:18 <elliott> "Note: for those of you that cannot do better than coming up with boring, witless comments and even suggestions to close a valid question, please see the accepted answer here: Using GNU/Linux system call `splice` for zero-copy Socket to Socket data transfers in Haskell as an excellent example of how to be of proper help to those that really seek constructive answers!!"
16:53:25 <elliott> The best part is that the answer they got to that question was wrong.
17:06:54 <kmc> the simplest explanation i can give for monads is that they're cake
17:07:43 <itidus22> all i know is they're not related to the monadology (or i hope not else i would be wrong)
17:07:57 <ais523> elliott: bleh, the backquotes there made me think splice was (1) rather than (2)
17:08:01 <ais523> but AFAIK there isn't a splice(1)
17:08:17 <ais523> what was the question, anyway? that seems like a valid answer to at least one question
17:08:54 <elliott> eh? that's not an answer
17:09:02 <elliott> "that question" in my line is "Using GNU/Linux ..."
17:09:16 <ais523> oh, I see
17:09:19 <elliott> They put that at the top of their question to whine after people criticised and closed the question as off-topic.
17:09:20 <ais523> I assumed that was the answer, not the question
17:09:39 <elliott> (It was a request for someone to benchmark RSA implementations.)
17:09:43 <ais523> as in "if you aren't getting enough performance from your userspace program, why not use a syscall that does the same thing instead"?
17:09:45 <ais523> oh, I see
17:09:46 <kmc> also shouldn't it be "Linux system call" not "GNU/Linux system call"
17:09:47 <kmc> :3
17:09:50 <ais523> kmc: indeed!
17:10:14 <ais523> phrases like "GNU/Linux system call" can only meaningfully refer to things like readdir(3)
17:10:37 <elliott> ais523: the `splice` thing was another question by the same person
17:10:45 <elliott> ais523: which got a wrong answer from someone who didn't know Haskell
17:10:46 <ais523> (readdir is typically a syscall, but glibc readdir is a wrapper around getdents(2)
17:10:49 <ais523> elliott: ah, OK
17:11:00 <elliott> (it appears to work, but is broken, because they don't understand GHC's IO manager, because they don't know any Haskell)
17:11:23 <elliott> (and of course now the broken library is on hackage hogging the name so that nobody competent can put up a working package)
17:12:21 <ais523> what sort of breakage is involved? the meaning being wrong so that the optimiser can change an incidentally-correct naive version into an incorrect optimised version?
17:12:37 <elliott> err, that seems an awfully specific reason to guess without having any context
17:12:58 <itidus22> lol
17:13:03 <ais523> it is, but it's quite a common one wrt Haskell and unsafePerformIO
17:13:08 <elliott> the answer was "to avoid the syscall returning EAGAIN, set the socket to blocking mode"
17:13:15 <ais523> ah, OK
17:13:22 <elliott> GHC, as you might know, does all IO through an event loop using non-blocking IO
17:13:27 <elliott> so that's... a bad idea
17:14:29 <ais523> this is why CPAN has so many vaguely similar namespaces

17:47:47 <Deewiant> elliott: I do it in my .xinitrc, but if you want to maintain ssh-agent across login sessions you might be interested in keychain: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Using_SSH_Keys#Keychain
17:48:17 <elliott> Deewiant: Hmm, how do you do it in .xinitrc?
17:48:24 <Deewiant> if ! ssh-add < /dev/null; then
17:48:24 <Deewiant> eval `ssh-agent`
17:48:24 <Deewiant> ssh-add < /dev/null
17:48:24 <Deewiant> fi
17:48:32 <elliott> Deewiant: Yes, but what about your key password?
17:48:38 <Deewiant> ssh-add asks me
17:48:53 -!- KingOfKarlsruhe has quit (Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox 11.0/20120312181643]).
17:48:58 <elliott> Deewiant: How? .xinitrc doesn't run in a terminal, does it?
17:49:27 <Deewiant> ENVIRONMENT
17:49:28 <Deewiant> DISPLAY and SSH_ASKPASS
17:49:28 <Deewiant> If ssh-add needs a passphrase, it will read the passphrase from
17:49:28 <Deewiant> the current terminal if it was run from a terminal. If ssh-add
17:49:28 <Deewiant> does not have a terminal associated with it but DISPLAY and
17:49:30 <Deewiant> SSH_ASKPASS are set, it will execute the program specified by
17:49:32 <Deewiant> SSH_ASKPASS and open an X11 window to read the passphrase. This
17:49:35 <Deewiant> is particularly useful when calling ssh-add from a .xsession or
17:49:37 <Deewiant> related script. (Note that on some machines it may be necessary
17:49:40 <Deewiant> to redirect the input from /dev/null to make this work.)
17:49:54 <elliott> Huh. What does SSH_ASKPASS default to / what do you have it set to?
17:50:04 <Deewiant> /usr/lib/openssh/qt4-ssh-askpass
17:50:18 <elliott> :(
17:50:43 <elliott> Anyway, what I essentialy want is for it to ask me for my key pw on first ssh login (just like if I didn't use ssh-agent), but then remember it thereafter for the rest of the X session.
17:50:43 <Deewiant> It defaults to empty, presumably. :-P
17:50:56 <elliott> Just like sudo, more or less.
17:51:00 <elliott> (Except without the timeout.)
17:51:01 <Deewiant> There are various dialogs, this one is community/openssh-askpass.
17:51:37 <Deewiant> So you probably want keychain, and then make ssh a shell script that runs keychain and then ssh, or something.
17:52:02 <elliott> Yes, the "make ssh a shell script" is the part I don't want to do. Especially since I'm not sure how mosh would like that.
17:52:47 <Deewiant> Alternatively, make it an alias in your .${SHELL}rc ;-P
17:53:14 <elliott> Deewiant: Well, that would completely defeat the point, since I don't use ssh directly.
17:53:16 <Deewiant> I doubt ssh itself supports starting up an ssh-agent if necessary.
17:53:27 <Deewiant> Ah, okay.
17:53:35 <elliott> Hmm.
17:53:40 <Deewiant> Well, I'd try the shell script way.
17:53:47 <elliott> I wouldn't be surprised if ssh let you set up "command to run before connecting", or something.
17:53:53 <elliott> In which case I could merely make it ssh-add.
17:54:06 <Deewiant> I don't see why mosh shouldn't like a shell script, if you do it right.

17:55:02 <elliott> If I do it right, I mean.
17:55:23 <elliott> Deewiant: It occurs to me that a shell script would be very tricky to get right if I used ssh to more than one server.
17:55:37 <elliott> (Okay, to more than one server and where one of them isn't authenticated by that pubkey.)
17:55:43 <elliott> Privkey. w/e.
17:55:49 <Deewiant> Possibly.
18:08:36 <kmc> will it... like... a script? what do you mean?
18:08:55 <kmc> i guess i should read scrollback
18:09:15 <kmc> if ssh is really a shell script that invokes ssh
18:09:23 <kmc> and it still supports ssh's command line syntax
18:09:23 * elliott is glad his question was as unhelpful as he tried to make it
18:09:29 <kmc> then mosh should be fine
18:09:47 <elliott> kmc: Okay. It still feels wrong. :(
18:09:51 <elliott> Does scp invoke ssh?
18:09:57 <elliott> Like, what if it suddenly didn't???
18:10:00 <elliott> Then scp wouldn't do what I want any more.
18:10:03 <Deewiant> According to its manpage, yes.
18:10:34 <kmc> we're thinking of supporting mosh --ssh="~/whatever/ssh --foo --bar"
18:10:41 <kmc> or you know --ssh="rsh" if that's your think
18:10:55 <kmc> except I think that won't work because it uses too many ssh-specific options

20:08:51 <elliott> oerjan: whats a snap
20:09:20 <oerjan> that's when you do with your fingers like *this*
20:10:01 <elliott> now im froge :(
20:10:43 <oerjan> i'm afraid i don't know froge. now nn:fråge, otoh, that's a different en:question
20:11:00 <oerjan> (or sv:fråga)
20:11:29 <itidus21> it seems that the noise of the snap is using the thumb to increase the power with which you collide a finger against your palm
20:12:04 <elliott> *frogg
20:12:11 <oerjan> hm actually i'm not sure that is nynorsk at all. the first google hit for fråge nynorsk is not encouraging.
20:12:26 <itidus21> somehow i always thought it was the thumb against the finger that made the noise
20:12:51 <elliott> wow norwegian wikipedia only has 335k articles

20:14:37 <oerjan> (to be honest, i rarely bother with the norwegian wikipedia myself)
20:14:54 <oerjan> it's nice for translating species names, though :P
20:15:10 <itidus21> i sometimes check alternate wikis on a topic just to see if theres different content
20:16:03 <itidus21> this probably goes even worse than it seems since i rarely translate it
20:16:49 <itidus21> when i see a blurb of text in a foreign language i am not very good at anticipating what it says
20:17:08 <itidus21> the odds of being wrong are very high
20:17:31 <oerjan> itidus21: my best snap is when i let the middle finger hit just between the palm and the ring finger resting on it
20:18:03 <itidus21> oerjan: it's a bit like how the japanese speed up their sword drawing by pressing it against the sheath
20:18:09 <mroman_> keep dreamin' @100 years

20:33:22 <shachaf> Well, I want my money back.

21:48:53 <zzo38> Perhaps I could write some phlog journal messages about idea of Ibtlfmm, in case you are interested about that. But maybe the syntax *(x) -> {x} -> * is not so good because of the datakinds kind K x = K * (x -> x); it might use ( for grouping too. Maybe this syntax better? (* =x) -> {x} -> * or something else you have idea?

22:23:48 <Mathnerd314> elliott: you could have had him ask on #esoteric :p
22:24:02 <elliott> oerjan: that got me to thinking, is there a nice way to define relations constructively in type theory...
22:24:10 <elliott> Mathnerd314: the prolog guy? i considered it
22:26:20 -!- derdon has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
22:26:56 <oerjan> elliott: A -> B -> Bool ?
22:30:17 <oerjan> although that doesn't give that covariance, i think
22:30:53 <oerjan> while [(A,B)] doesn't give contravariance
22:31:18 <elliott> oerjan: well the variance always gets messed up in type theory, it seems
22:31:27 <elliott> oerjan: e.g. a set is (a -> Bool)
22:31:41 <elliott> oerjan: but sets are both co- and contravariant in set theory
22:31:55 <elliott> in type theory you lose the co-, I think because it's not constructive enough
22:32:08 <oerjan> mhm
22:32:16 <elliott> (actually shouldn't it be (a -> Prop))
22:32:27 <elliott> (I think it should, you can construct sets based on undecidable propositions)
22:33:31 <elliott> <copumpkin> well, computationally, that roughly describes a decidable binary relation
22:33:31 <elliott> <copumpkin> a real one is a -> a -> Prop
22:33:33 <elliott> holy fucking synchronicity
22:33:42 <zzo38> I have seen a different kind of set in some Haskell code using (a -> Bool) -> a but there are no empty sets
22:34:17 <zzo38> But this is not contravariant; if it is then it is not Functor
22:38:44 <Phantom_Hoover> <elliott> (actually shouldn't it be (a -> Prop))
22:38:52 <Phantom_Hoover> what is the difference i am but a simple mathematician
22:40:11 <zzo38> How do you represent the undecidable propositions?
22:41:35 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Prop is the type of all proposition types.
22:41:41 <Phantom_Hoover> Oh, yes.
22:41:47 <elliott> Usually you say that all values x,y : P where P : Prop are equal (proof irrelevance).
22:41:51 <Phantom_Hoover> (Said in a Churchill voice.)
22:41:52 <elliott> Bool is just a two-element type.

22:42:24 <zzo38> How can a type have types?
22:42:29 <elliott> zzo38: Hmm, (a -> Bool) -> a is the impossible infinite search stuff, right?
22:42:34 <elliott> And because it's types all the way down in type theory.
22:42:43 <elliott> T : Type : Type[1] : Type[2] : and so on
22:43:47 <zzo38> elliott: (a -> Bool) -> a is the one for infinite search. I have read, that it is a monad even if you replace Bool with something else. But it cannot be empty. Maybe if you had a transformer you can transform Maybe and make it empty?
22:44:20 <elliott> Hmm, how do you represent (singleton x) and (member x s) with that?
22:44:51 <zzo38> singleton = const
22:46:28 <elliott> Ah.
22:46:37 <elliott> Is member x s = s (== x) == x?
22:46:57 <zzo38> Yes
22:47:18 <elliott> What about union s t?
22:47:26 <zzo38> http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/infinite-search/0.12/doc/html/src/Data-Searchable.html
22:47:45 <zzo38> (join = bigUnion)
22:48:07 <elliott> join is a bit more powerful an operation than union.
22:48:24 <zzo38> Yes
22:48:34 <elliott> Can union be defined simply without bigUnion?
22:48:41 <Sgeo> Go or Arimaa?
22:49:01 <Sgeo> Although I think that choice was sort of settled for me when I introduced her to Arimaa first
22:50:15 <elliott> zzo38: I can't figure out how to inline bigUnion in union to get a simpler definition. :(
