00:00:46 * oerjan wasn't aware that existensials were useless in haskell
00:01:40 <elliott> @flush
00:01:47 <elliott> oerjan: well they usually are because you can just pre-apply them.
00:01:58 <elliott> like how (exists a. (Show a) => a) is String (modulo the precedence stuff which you can do too if you want)
00:02:13 <elliott> (exists s. (s, s -> a)) is a because all you can do is apply it, etc.
00:02:51 <elliott> forall s. Foo { initialiseState :: IO s, doSomethingA :: s -> IO (), doSomethingB :: IO () } --> Foo (IO Bar) where Bar { doSomethingA :: IO (), doSomethingB :: IO () }
00:02:53 <elliott> etc.
00:02:56 <Madoka-Kaname> > a + b = 5
00:02:56 <lambdabot> <no location info>: parse error on input `='
00:03:01 <Madoka-Kaname> :(
00:03:05 <elliott> (plus http://lukepalmer.wordpress.com/2010/01/24/haskell-antipattern-existential-typeclass/)
00:05:14 <oerjan> Madoka-Kaname: > takes expressions, not declarations
00:09:44 <kmc> i wouldn't say they're "usually useless"
00:10:05 <kmc> but they are overused
00:10:21 <kmc> you could say that "null" is useless because beginners write code like "if null xs then ..." and usually there is a better way
00:10:30 <kmc> but no, "null" is useful in the right context
00:11:58 <elliott> kmc: well, "existentials are useless" may be a bit strong, but i haven't yet seen *any* use of existentials that wouldn't be better without
00:12:31 <elliott> I recently saw a case where they turned out to be the best option, but that's because it had several constraints from various libraries; IMO that points to a design flaw in those libraries (that they can only abstract that functionality through typeclasses, unreasonably)
00:12:42 <kmc> well your third example, with the IO
00:12:51 <kmc> if your objects *don't* have destructive update
00:13:00 <kmc> or if you just sometimes want to return (IO s)
00:13:07 <kmc> 's not uncommon
00:13:13 <elliott> I don't understand what you mean by either of those.
00:15:49 <kmc> anyway I think API design in Haskell is probably hopeless
00:15:57 <elliott> wat
00:16:05 <kmc> people spend their whole programming lives thinking about OOP design, and they still screw it up regularly
00:16:17 <kmc> very few people do enough Haskell programming to get the knack for good API design
00:16:43 <kmc> i've never seen a list of rules or guidelines and I expect the community would not welcome same
00:17:05 <elliott> you're way too cynical
00:17:25 <kmc> maybe
00:17:39 <kmc> a confounding factor is that the most popular OOP languages don't actually support OOP style very well
00:18:18 <kmc> in Java you have some classes which represent the problem domain, and a lot more SingletonVisitorProxyAdaptorFactory classes which represent basic control flow
00:22:02 <hagb4rd> there is no good oop design at all, at least none without a specific context.. in practise the requirements often are extended to a point where the initial design becomes unsatisfying
00:22:18 <hagb4rd> *requirements to software
00:22:50 <elliott> kmc: let's put it this way: good API design in Haskell doesn't require as much care and avoidance of pitfalls as OOP
00:23:01 <elliott> because... it's just better
00:23:13 <elliott> so while there's less of a culture around rules and guidelines for API design, they're less necessary
00:23:41 <kmc> hahahahahahaha
00:23:46 <elliott> and, well, there's also the fact that the kind of person who is dedicated enough with learning haskell to get to actually writing a library with something you could call an API is probably going to be better than $average_programmer at designing APIs in teh first place
00:23:47 <elliott> kmc: well, come on
00:23:52 <elliott> i'm not saying haskell magically solves all problems
00:24:06 <elliott> but it's a hell of a lot easier to design a nice haskell api than a nice java or C API or whatever
00:24:10 <kmc> it avoids some of the OOP pitfalls but it introduces many pitfalls of its own
00:24:32 <kmc> like having to provide a way for the user to control strictness
00:24:50 <elliott> that's not necessarily a requirement of an API...
00:25:19 <kmc> and dealing with all the incompatible string / vector / iteratee types
00:25:37 <kmc> it's not necessarily a requirement of a library that it be good or useful
00:26:22 <kmc> Haskell API design also has the pitfall that the nicest API you can think of will often involve crazy GHC extensions or insane types
00:26:42 <elliott> bullshit
00:26:43 <kmc> so you have to balance API niceness against the level of sophistication required from the user
00:33:08 <kmc> you can call bullshit if you want elliott
00:33:18 <elliott> i did :)
00:33:19 <kmc> but i've found all of these to be pain points with Haskell APIs
00:33:26 <kmc> and you haven't provided any argument to the contrary
00:33:34 <kmc> they're not *always* an issue but neither are the standard OOP pitfalls
00:33:52 <elliott> if you end up requiring crazy GHC extensions for an API it's usually because you're trying too hard
00:34:09 <kmc> another pain point is that people write high level looking FFI bindings and don't f*cking make them threadsafe
00:34:10 <elliott> imo
00:34:12 <kmc> but that's not really Haskell's fault
00:34:21 <elliott> that's C's fault :P
00:34:28 <pikhq_> That's a failure of pain-over-IP protocol.
00:34:31 <kmc> haskellers have higher standards
00:34:59 <kmc> elliott: I think you're proving my point. you have the wisdom to understand that these GHC extensions are "trying too hard", but most of the people designing APIs don't
00:35:11 <kmc> i am not saying it's impossible to design a good API in Haskell
00:35:16 <elliott> shrug
00:35:25 <elliott> is your point just "people are incompetent"
00:35:30 <kmc> no
00:35:42 <hagb4rd> what is a good API after all? it provides functionality of which you don't need to know how they work. just put sth in, and get sth out.. right?
00:35:48 <kmc> -_-
00:37:32 <elliott> kmc: were you this cynical before #haskell started burning you out
00:37:37 <kmc> yeah
00:37:45 <kmc> elliott you're not understanding my point about APIs
00:37:48 <kmc> that's fine ok
00:38:06 <elliott> just askin'
00:38:31 <elliott> you seem to be acting as if I'm saying "API design is easy"
00:38:47 <elliott> whereas the actual statement you made that I am disagreeing with is "anyway I think API design in Haskell is probably hopeless"
00:39:15 <kmc> the statement i'm disagreeing with is "good API design in Haskell doesn't require as much care and avoidance of pitfalls as OOP"
00:39:22 <kmc> because, while the OOP pitfalls go away, there are new ones
00:39:33 <kmc> so I think it's hard to argue that Haskell API design is easier or harder on balance
00:39:50 <elliott> fine, but that's hardly "API design in Haskell is probably hopeless"
00:40:47 <kmc> well combine it with the fact that few people learn Haskell well enough to understand the pitfalls
00:40:55 <hagb4rd> what is the difference between a haskell api and one made java (e.g.)
00:40:56 <hagb4rd> ?
00:43:37 -!- cswords has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
00:48:24 <kmc> elliott: I would hang around #haskell being cynical about how everyone else is too dumb to understand how great Haskell is
00:50:08 <kmc> and I still kind of feel that way, too
00:50:12 <kmc> so yes, I did get more cynical ;P
00:50:25 <hagb4rd> i don't know much about haskell, but i don't see why there can be such a big difference on how and what an interface is supposed to do
00:50:53 <kmc> you don't see because you don't know much about haskell
00:51:01 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Quit: Leaving).
00:51:08 <kmc> a lot of people only know programming languages which are very similar to each other
00:51:15 <elliott> @tell Phantom_Hoover i remembered
00:51:15 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
00:51:27 <shachaf> All programming languages are basically the same thing.
00:51:31 <hagb4rd> but if i use an interface, i don't really need to? am i wrong?
00:51:39 <shachaf> You press keys on the keyboard, something happens on the screen.
00:51:46 <kmc> you are wrong hagb4rd
00:51:51 <elliott> anyway the solution is to not care about whether other people are any good at API design or whatever
00:52:05 <kmc> for example in C a critical part of an interface is the contract for who manages memory passed into and returned from the function
00:52:21 <kmc> it's a major part of C API design, and a major thing people get wrong
00:52:25 <kmc> it's not a concern in Java or Python
00:53:22 <oerjan> hagb4rd: idiomatic haskell is distinctly _not_ object oriented, so naively translating an api which _is_ OO can become very awkward with excessive use of even more advanced features to fit OO into it
00:54:30 <oerjan> s/even more advanced/advanced type system/
00:54:59 <kmc> hagb4rd: this shows that API design in C has extra challenges compared to API design in Java
00:55:10 <kmc> there are of course challenges in Java not shared by C
00:55:30 <hagb4rd> okay, translating would be a problem, fair enough. but starting from scratch i could design a procedural api which pretty much works the same as a c api will do, or not?
00:55:32 <kmc> and so maybe you can imagine that there are challenges in Haskell not shared by Java, and vice versa, even if you don't know enough about Haskell to know what they are
00:55:44 <kmc> hagb4rd: yes, but it won't be idiomatic Haskell
00:56:05 <kmc> because in Haskell you only use imperative / procedural programming when it makes sense in the problem domain
00:56:39 * elliott (disagrees minorly, but not in a way that invalidates kmc's point)
00:57:17 <hagb4rd> sure, but it handles parameters (of an expected type) and produces some output (of another type).. correct?
00:57:35 <hagb4rd> without going into more details
00:57:47 <kmc> look you need to learn about haskell before this discussion can continue
00:58:14 <kmc> functions in haskell are functions, they don't have side effects and their output depends only on their input
00:58:26 <kmc> that means they do not map cleanly to the "functions" of C, Java, etc
00:58:51 <hagb4rd> that does not surprise me at all kmc
01:00:38 <hagb4rd> my point is, that the difficulties of designing an api is to declare those parameters (I/O) so they match all the use cases (and the ones which may appear in future architectures too)
01:01:51 -!- zzo38 has joined.
01:02:14 <kmc> hagb4rd: that is a very general statement of what the problem is
01:02:30 <kmc> that problem has all kinds of specific ramifications in different languages
01:02:38 <kmc> like the C memory management thing
01:03:36 <elliott> hmm, plouffe's inverter seems broken
01:04:46 <hagb4rd> afaik the code behind the api cares a lot of for its own memory management.. but there might be some special cases where it can make sense
01:05:13 <elliott> "Over the years since the sinking of the Titanic on 14/15 April 1912, many impractical, expensive and often physically impossible schemes have been put forward to raise the wreck from its resting place. They have included ideas such as filling the wreck with ping-pong balls, injecting it with 180,000 tons of Vaseline, or using half a million tons of liquid nitrogen to turn it into a giant iceberg that would float back to the surface."
01:05:27 -!- Sgeo_ has joined.
01:07:22 <kmc> hagb4rd: have you programmed in C
01:07:34 <hagb4rd> yes
01:07:50 <kmc> you understand that, sometimes a function returns a pointer and you are responsible for free()ing that pointer
01:08:00 <kmc> other times a function returns a pointer and you need to be very careful *not* to free() it
01:08:09 <kmc> that is part of API design in C
01:08:15 <kmc> deciding who will manage which bits of memory
01:08:33 <kmc> it is user-visible API design, not an implementation detail
01:08:45 <hagb4rd> sure, but everytime the api expects a pointer it will get a pointer
01:08:55 <hagb4rd> and nothing more or less than that
01:09:00 <kmc> what?
01:09:38 <kmc> do you think that API design is only a matter of writing out type signatures?
01:09:45 <kmc> you have to say what the arguments *mean*
01:10:04 <kmc> i have the feeling i'm being trolled
01:12:12 <hagb4rd> i dunno, i thought we're talking about apidesign but somehow we arrived @ memory management.. nevermind
01:12:32 <elliott> turns out memory management is part of api design
01:12:57 <elliott> "Robert Ballard of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution had long been interested in finding Titanic. Although early negotiations with possible backers were abandoned when it emerged that they wanted to turn the ship into paperweights" this article is fucking hilarious
01:13:14 <hagb4rd> so you're managing memory on business layer for example?
01:13:27 <kmc> in C you have to
01:13:36 <kmc> in Java that would be crazy
01:13:38 <kmc> that was my point
01:13:48 <kmc> the specific concerns of API design depend on the language you're using
01:13:51 <kmc> that was my point
01:15:12 <elliott> "On 17 July 1980, an expedition sponsored by Texan oilman Jack Grimm set off from Port Everglades, Florida, in the research vessel H.J.W. Fay. Grimm had previously sponsored expeditions to find Noah's Ark, the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and the (non-existent) giant hole in the North Pole predicted by the Hollow Earth hypothesis."
01:15:34 <kmc> "non-existent giant hole in the North Pole"
01:16:01 <elliott> "They nearly stayed ashore when Grimm brought along a monkey called Titan, which was trained to point at a spot on the map to supposedly indicate where Titanic was. The scientists issued an ultimatum: "It's either us or the monkey." Grimm preferred the monkey, but was prevailed upon to leave it behind and bring the scientists instead.[21]"
01:16:15 <elliott> literally everything to do with attempts to find and/or recover the wreck of the titanic is hilarious
01:16:31 <kmc> O_O
01:16:48 <elliott> this thing has to be one gigantic hoax
01:17:04 <elliott> "It later turned out that Sea MARC had actually passed over Titanic but had failed to detect it"

01:22:15 <elliott> that's nothing. once i gatecrashed a wedding in a CHURCH
01:22:18 <oerjan> ooh
01:23:01 * oerjan wonders if the russians will make an industry of this like with the space tourists
01:26:22 <oerjan> hm i guess that bbc article doesn't mention that the helicopter was russian, i read that today in a norwegian paper
01:26:54 <elliott> do norwegians have a thing about russia
01:27:58 <oerjan> yes; it's called a shared border and industry on svalbard
01:28:44 <oerjan> so he flew by norwegian plane to svalbard and hiked with the russians via their 89 degree arctic base
01:29:13 <oerjan> *degrees
01:29:27 <elliott> oerjan: ok by "shared border and industry on svalbard"
01:29:30 <elliott> do you mean "we hate their guts"
01:30:21 <oerjan> surprisingly amicable, really; just a few years ago we even managed to agree on _where_ the border is
01:30:29 <elliott> wowzers
01:30:41 <kmc> should i go to svalbard
01:30:47 <elliott> yes
01:30:50 <elliott> can i come too
01:30:57 <oerjan> kmc: why not
01:31:41 <hagb4rd> things have changed since there may be a way to get that oil below the ice capes
01:33:00 <kmc> svalbard has almost free immigration
01:33:07 <oerjan> if you are a citizen of one of these countries you might even manage to work there: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard_Treaty
01:33:14 <kmc> yes
01:34:13 <elliott> oh by "go" does kmc mean "move"
01:34:27 <zzo38> I think a while ago someone in this channel try to think of coapplicative (and couldn't think of (>*<))? The thing I can think of is maybe like this? lowerChoice :: f (Either x y) -> Either (f x) (f y); It can be implemented on the non-empty list comonad, on identity comonad, etc
01:34:46 <elliott> zzo38: that's a well-known formulation iirc
01:35:11 <zzo38> I just used that it seem dual to liftPair :: (f x, f y) -> f (x, y);
01:38:06 <elliott> kmc: did you mean "move" or "visit" i can't actually tell
01:38:14 <elliott> oerjan: "Management of .sj lies with the Trondheim-based Norid, which is also the domain name registry for .no and the unused .bv."
01:38:17 <elliott> oerjan: trondheim has too much power
01:39:46 <oerjan> ah of course the russians have made it an industry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barneo
01:40:08 <hagb4rd> kmc, just bug you one more time :) i use the winapi a lot. can you point out an example where i need to handle memory management using the winapi`?
01:40:59 <kmc> i don't know anything about winapi
01:41:29 <kmc> elliott: i meant more like "visit" but i basically just asked because i thought the answers might be interesting
01:41:29 <hagb4rd> ok

01:50:26 <hagb4rd> elliott: are you preparing for a polar expedition, or sth?
01:50:27 <oerjan> elliott: it seems that norid was established as part of uninett, which was originally maintained by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SINTEF, which was founded by nth which is one of the two main parts that merged into NTNU university [nb: RAS]
01:50:34 <ais523> oh, bleh
01:50:41 <ais523> apparently SQL was originally /called/ SEQUEL but the name was changed for legal reasons
01:50:49 * ais523 gets even more confused as to htf it's supposed to be pronounced, then
01:51:20 <elliott> hagb4rd: totally
01:53:05 <oerjan> ais523: squeal, of course
01:53:14 <pikhq_> __builtin_prefetch should not have been an epic win.
01:53:20 <pikhq_> It *was*, but it should not have been.
01:53:32 <ais523> huh, something's seriously wrong if adding it has any noticeable effect at all
01:53:44 <elliott> did you have to say "epic win" :(
01:53:50 <ais523> pikhq_: there's a hilarious blog post by one of the Mozilla people talking about improving Firefox's startup time
01:54:06 <ais523> they spent ages benchmarking it to stop it seeking about all over the place in the executable, and instead read sequentially
01:54:09 <ais523> and had got it down quite a bit
01:54:22 <ais523> and then, they just wrote a shell script that copied the executable to /dev/null before running it, and it went way faster
01:54:27 <pikhq_> ais523: Well, in my defense, I'm doing nonsequential accesses on a *framebuffer*.
01:54:37 <pikhq_> And said framebuffer doesn't fit in my L2.
01:54:39 <ais523> pikhq_: reads or writes?
01:54:47 <ais523> pikhq_: your defence? it's the compiler I'm bitchingat
01:54:49 <ais523> *bitching at
01:55:18 <pikhq_> Writes, actually.
01:55:25 <pikhq_> Yes, it's ridiculous.
01:56:19 <ais523> how do you speed up writes with a prefetch?
01:56:24 <pikhq_> *I don't know!*
01:56:42 <pikhq_> But it halved the time I take to draw a frame!
01:56:50 <ais523> meanwhile, XPN's text wrap is really /really/ broken
01:57:27 <ais523> if you type () then start typing inside the parens, the cursor ends up outside them when it wraps from one line to the next, for instance
01:57:34 <pikhq_> Though __builtin_prefetch takes an option so you can tell it you're meaning to *write*.
01:58:15 <kmc> if you're doing only writes, you can use nontemporal store instructions
01:58:30 <ais523> well, it's a framebuffer, it's being read by something else
01:58:37 <ais523> or might even physically be part of the video hardware, I guess
01:58:51 <ais523> not sure how many layers of indirection there are between a typical framebuffer and the video card
01:59:06 <ais523> anyway, Web of Lies-related issue: X is trying to make iopl syscalls, as non-root
01:59:09 <ais523> and is then bitching when they fail
01:59:20 <pikhq_> 'Cept it doesn't fit in cache.
01:59:22 <ais523> also, passing them through to the kernel is giving EINVAL rather than EPERM anyway
01:59:27 <pikhq_> It's ~4 times larger than my L2.

03:37:16 <hagb4rd> shachaf: how do you do that?
03:37:33 <shachaf> hagb4rd: I have magical artist powers.
03:37:50 <hagb4rd> share them with me :)
03:38:05 <RocketJSquirrel> He has Unicode is stupid powers >_>
03:38:57 <shachaf> kmc: I have an actual Japanese input method set up!
03:39:03 <shachaf> In order to not be racist.
03:39:36 <monqy> how considerate !
03:39:38 <monqy> that's worth a hi

03:40:23 <monqy> old shachaf said hi
03:40:32 <shachaf> Well, old shachaf is no more.
03:40:39 <monqy> what did you do old shachaf
03:42:09 <shachaf> monqy: I don't know. :-(
03:42:19 <monqy> :(
03:43:57 <hagb4rd> so you have kind of a macro set up, encoding your input as unicode right? is there an escape char to prefix a unicode char? if you know what i mean
03:44:33 <shachaf> hagb4rd: I have a secret macro that encodes EVERYTHING I TYPE -- EVEN THESE VERY CHARACTERS -- AS UNICODE.
03:44:38 <shachaf> Where by Unicode I mean UTF-8.
03:46:44 <hagb4rd> i see
03:48:15 <kmc> is there an escape char to prefix a unicode char? IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN NUDGE NUDGE WINK WINK

03:54:27 <hagb4rd> no, i'm just a bot
03:54:40 <shachaf> What a coïncidence!

04:00:10 <hagb4rd> shachaf: what's up with itidus21? you haven't hurt him, did you?
04:04:43 <hagb4rd> i will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers
04:06:16 <shachaf> hagb4rd: Are you sure you're not itidus21?
04:07:23 <hagb4rd> indeed i am
04:07:49 <RocketJSquirrel> Good job on the ambiguity there

04:21:56 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: Do you know what the type of a closure is???
04:22:41 <kmc> elliott: why are you asking that
04:22:57 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: Um, A -> B?
04:22:58 <elliott> kmc: It's one of those questions where I already know the answer, I'm just repeating it a lot, you see?
04:23:06 <elliott> Mostly so I can do this:
04:23:09 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: WRONGGGGGGGGGGGG
04:23:12 <elliott> It's really satisfying.
04:23:41 -!- cswords has joined.
04:24:39 <shachaf> elliott: The best part was the part where you were wrong all along.
04:24:40 <hagb4rd> yes, great attitude
04:25:00 <elliott> shachaf: Yes. But then I became right!
04:25:22 <shachaf> Apparently http://prokofiev.org/ may harm my computer. :-(
04:25:36 <shachaf> elliott: AFTER I MADE YOU RIGHT
04:26:03 <elliott> shachaf: Yes, but would you have made me right without the inspiration and genius I showed to you with my original, slightly incorrect form?
04:26:18 <shachaf> Probably.
04:26:24 <elliott> No.
04:26:28 <shachaf> elliott: Also, I wasn't really exactly wrong, as such.
04:26:33 <shachaf> I said struct Closure.
04:26:51 <shachaf> struct Closure { void *data; void (*fn)(void *); };
04:27:42 <kmc> data a -> b = K (∃f. (f, a) -># b)
04:28:26 <shachaf> Exactly.
04:28:27 <elliott> kmc: That needs MagicHash, man!
04:28:30 <elliott> So unportable.
04:28:34 <elliott> By the way, that's wrong too.
04:28:38 <elliott> You mean:
04:28:41 <elliott> data a -> b = K (∃f. (f, (f, a) -># b))
04:28:52 <shachaf> elliott: kmc always needs MagicHash.
04:29:07 <elliott> Wait! I think I get the joke!
04:29:11 <elliott> Is the joke: drugs?
04:29:15 <kmc> itt: drugs
04:29:23 <kmc> yeah you're right elliott
04:29:32 * elliott geniouse
04:29:45 <shachaf> elliott: Isn't it great how you corrected kmc with the exact same thing I used to correct you earlier?
04:29:59 <elliott> Yes.
04:30:10 <shachaf> WHOSE GENIOUSE NOW??
04:30:26 <elliott> I don't like how kmc's definition couples the concept of function with the concept of closure. But OTOH I can't see any useful way to use my original type without the product in there. :(
04:30:30 <kmc> shachaf: aim hecker :(
04:30:49 <elliott> Have I mentioned that my systems language uses kmc's (->#) as its function arrow?
04:31:03 <shachaf> "my systems language"
04:31:24 <kmc> is it @
04:31:24 <shachaf> kmc: did i hckecek ur aim????

04:33:33 <elliott> Guess what sunk????
04:33:35 <elliott> THE TITANIC.
04:33:45 <kmc> i went with KeithW so if we did sink, that would pretty much be the end of Mosh
04:33:51 <kmc> we need a critical personel policy
04:34:03 <shachaf> zomg kmc = famousmc
04:34:54 <elliott> kmc: I think that would require a bus to drive into the basin with you, and then hit you.
04:35:04 <elliott> That is, as I understand, the procedure.
04:35:06 <kmc> that could very easily happen
04:35:22 <shachaf> Buses? In my Charles River Basin?
04:35:34 <elliott> It's not your Charles River basin, shachaf.
04:35:36 <elliott> It's God's.
04:35:40 <shachaf> hi god

04:40:26 <elliott> Not *everything* I do is @.
04:40:29 <elliott> Only most things.
04:40:43 <zzo38> kmc: You should help to implement my language as well, but not until the specification is written so that we can know how it should be
04:41:57 <elliott> kmc: I... I apologise.

04:49:23 <elliott> 1 + 1 and use left () to be true and right () to be false."

06:35:15 <shachaf> monqy: But I haven't been playing on the server for years!
06:35:26 <shachaf> In fact I haven't played a single game of Crawl for the last $TIME.
06:35:34 <monqy> if you play crawl but don't play on the servers, I should say
06:35:34 <shachaf> Including on the server.
06:35:40 <shachaf> oh :(
06:35:44 <shachaf> zzo38: Do you play Crawl?
06:35:52 <elliott> you know what would be more entertaining than watching shachaf play crawl
06:35:56 <elliott> watching me play nethack while sleep-deprived
06:36:02 <monqy> sure
06:36:05 <shachaf> elliott: NONSENSE. NETHACK IS BORING.

06:41:04 <elliott> monqy: oh thanks
06:41:08 <elliott> monqy: what's a good thing it recognises

06:42:27 <elliott> so sorry about that
06:42:29 <coppro> and crash if you do anything that interacts

06:43:34 <elliott> i'm aiming for Fun here
06:43:39 <shachaf> elliott: TOURIST
06:43:43 <shachaf> MAXIMAL FUN
06:43:44 <ais523> oh, gnome healer, then
06:43:49 <elliott> WHY WON'T YOU ALL AGREE
06:43:53 <shachaf> elliott: DIG FOR VICTORY!
06:43:58 <shachaf> I want to watch elliott try to DfV.
06:44:12 <coppro> convict
06:44:25 <ais523> coppro: haha
06:44:26 <Sgeo> ais523, so is NiceHack an actually viable Nitro+Ace merger?
06:44:32 <elliott> ok what role
06:44:33 <elliott> c'mon
06:44:34 <elliott> role
06:44:36 <elliott> also
06:44:38 <shachaf> elliott: *
06:44:39 <Sgeo> Or is even the tarball just say april folls or something
06:44:41 <ais523> Sgeo: it's called NetHack 4, but yes
06:44:41 <elliott> i'll resize this terminal to be 80x24
06:44:47 <elliott> um
06:44:48 <shachaf> elliott: Real programmers always choose *
06:44:49 <elliott> what size is it now
06:44:53 <elliott> also how do i make NAO redraw
06:44:54 <ais523> elliott: how difficult do you want?
06:45:00 <ais523> control-R, but resizing during a game doesn't work
06:45:01 <shachaf> elliott: 100000000000000000000×100000000000000000000000000000000 right now
06:45:02 <elliott> ais523: as difficult as possible
06:45:07 <ais523> and resizing during the dgamelaunch screen screws up
06:45:10 <elliott> what do you mean during a game?
06:45:12 <elliott> ok wait
06:45:18 <elliott> uhh
06:45:19 <ais523> in a different way
06:45:21 <shachaf> elliott: First pick a role.
06:45:23 <elliott> is there a command line program to print the current terminal size
06:45:30 <ais523> also, difficult as in lowest win chance, or as in dificult throughout the game
06:45:33 <ais523> and yes, but I can't remember what it is offhand
06:45:42 <elliott> ais523: the aim is comedy, i'm sleep deprived and terrible at nethack
06:45:53 <shachaf> elliott: urxvt shows terminal size when you resize
06:45:56 <ais523> gnome healer, then, because it gets worse and worse as it goes on
06:46:01 <elliott> aha, its tput
06:46:12 <shachaf> elliott: IT'S ECHO $ROWS, $COLS
06:46:51 <ais523> tput cols; tput lines
06:46:51 <elliott> ok
06:46:53 <elliott> monqy: is gnome healer good
06:46:55 <elliott> shoudl i be
06:46:56 <elliott> gnom haller

06:47:18 <shachaf> * * * *
06:47:20 <elliott> ok
06:47:20 <elliott> fine
06:47:26 <elliott> Sgeo: monqy: are you watching btw
06:47:33 <monqy> yes
06:47:34 <ais523> random all might produce a good combo by chance
06:47:34 <shachaf> elliott: In fact, press Q, then press Y instead of N.
06:47:42 <elliott> lawful male human samurai?
06:47:42 <coppro> today I probably won the 'weirdest question asked of proctor' award
06:47:43 <shachaf> ais523: That's part of the fun!
06:47:44 <elliott> that's not comedy at all
06:47:48 <hagb4rd> hey, how can i join/watch?
06:47:48 <elliott> that's boring
06:47:52 <Sgeo> elliott, is it still asking for role?
06:47:57 <Sgeo> hagb4rd, telnet to nethack.alt.org
06:47:57 <zzo38> coppro: What is that?
06:48:10 <hagb4rd> ok
06:48:11 <coppro> I had a hangnail, so I asked if I could remove a set of nail clippers from my bag
06:48:12 <ais523> elliott: what NAO username?
06:48:18 <elliott> ais523: ehird, and currently laughing
06:48:29 * ais523 jettyplay dgamelaunch://nethack.alt.org/ehird
06:48:40 <shachaf> monqy: If I play on NAO will you watch me. :-(
06:48:44 <monqy> shachaf: yes
06:48:49 <shachaf> Instead of elliott :-(
06:48:51 <elliott> no!!!
06:48:52 <ais523> elliott: huh, why is color off?
06:48:53 <elliott> :'(
06:48:53 <monqy> I'll watch you both
06:48:55 <elliott> ais523: it isn't
06:48:56 <monqy> at the same time
06:49:04 <shachaf> is it a monqy superpower
06:49:15 <monqy> yes
06:49:17 <ais523> well you have a terminal that uses bizarre nonstandard color codes then
06:49:23 <monqy> it works for me
06:49:24 <elliott> ais523: it's just rxvt-unicode
06:49:34 <shachaf> elliott: Turn off DECgraphics.
06:49:40 <elliott> i like decgraphics
06:49:40 <shachaf> Real programmers use plain graphics.
06:49:46 <ais523> oh, you died already
06:49:48 <elliott> on purpose
06:49:51 <elliott> boring role
06:49:52 <shachaf> My turn!
06:49:54 <elliott> ais523: what's the terminal for xterm 256 colours
06:49:58 <shachaf> Now all y'all get to watch me.
06:49:59 <elliott> TERM that is
06:50:06 <ais523> elliott: xterm, I think
06:50:10 <shachaf> @poll-add nethack
06:50:11 <lambdabot> Added new poll: "nethack"
06:50:17 <ais523> there's xterm-color, but that only seems to work on BSD
06:50:20 <ais523> properly, that is
06:50:21 <elliott> OK, I'm on again
06:50:22 <shachaf> @choice-add nethack Wiz_Elf_Mal_Cha
06:50:22 <lambdabot> New candidate "Wiz_Elf_Mal_Cha", added to poll "nethack".
06:50:22 <zzo38> Finally, in D&D game, I have found the emerald monster (it seems to be some kind of large humanoid demon); it is my job to kill him but the other people in the party should not kill him although they can harm him if they want; it is solely has to my job to kill him however. He is in some large octagon room, in some evil religion I cannot recognize. What to do?
06:50:26 <elliott> I'll go with a gnome healer
06:50:31 <shachaf> @vote nethack Wiz_Elf-Mal_Cha
06:50:31 <lambdabot> "Wiz_Elf-Mal_Cha" is not currently a candidate in this poll
06:50:33 <shachaf> @vote nethack Wiz_Elf_Mal_Cha
06:50:33 <lambdabot> voted on "Wiz_Elf_Mal_Cha"
06:50:36 <elliott> actually, naw
06:50:37 <elliott> tourist
06:50:54 <zzo38> O, lambdabot has votes?
06:50:57 <elliott> ais523: does colour work now?
06:51:06 <zzo38> I didn't know lambdabot has votes.
06:51:09 <ais523> it works in gnome-terminal, trying jettyplay
06:51:14 <shachaf> zzo38: Do you know it now?
06:51:25 <elliott> i liike how i've forgotten all the keys
06:51:26 <ais523> yep, works in jettyplay too
06:51:29 <zzo38> shachaf: Partially I know it now.

06:52:54 <monqy> I'll watch everyone
06:52:55 <elliott> wh
06:52:57 <elliott> why is there a goblin
06:53:03 <elliott> help
06:53:04 <shachaf> I'll play if monqy watches.
06:53:04 <coppro> I vaguely recall a player dying to a demon named 'where's my wish'
06:53:07 <shachaf> And ais523 watches.
06:53:08 <coppro> that was funny
06:53:09 <shachaf> And Sgeo watches.
06:53:10 <coppro> I'll watch
06:53:12 <shachaf> And elliott watches.
06:53:17 <shachaf> coppro can watch too.
06:53:40 <coppro> but only if mail is on
06:53:42 <RocketJSquirrel> Episode eighteen complete, reported battery level 7%. ... ... the last 10% is purgatory.
06:53:45 <zzo38> elliott: Probably because it happens at random that you find goblins and so on isn't that now NetHack works?
06:53:47 <elliott> coppro: i have mail on
06:53:49 <elliott> just sayin'!!!
06:54:13 <elliott> i forget can you mail in-game
06:54:15 <elliott> i guess not
06:55:18 <Sgeo> I didn't write that!
06:55:20 <monqy> can you make notes in game
06:56:06 <Sgeo> What happened to the mail I sent?
06:56:42 <Sgeo> Two messages on the same scroll?
06:56:56 <zzo38> * I have one of his books, but it is torn. * I have his dagger too. * It is some evil religion I cannot recognize. * The only known exit is through another room, up the stairs, into some water. * Someone else in my party has an emerald sword too. * This room is octagonal with 30 ft each side. * This fortress is a long way away from anything.
06:57:08 <coppro> Sgeo: the mail demon doesn't block on one client
06:57:11 <elliott> what happened to my weapons!!!
06:57:13 <elliott> and things
06:57:15 <ais523> elliott: you can use the extended command thing to send messages back
06:57:37 <coppro> elliott: you just type a message after the #
06:57:43 <elliott> well that's boring
06:57:49 -!- hagb4rd has quit (Quit: need to restart).
06:58:09 <shachaf> elliott: Wow, did you just heal the fox?
06:58:12 <shachaf> elliott++
06:58:12 <elliott> i
06:58:13 <elliott> thinks o
06:58:17 <zzo38> elliott: Maybe they evaporated; but, I think in NetHack you can get bonus points if you never use weapons so try that
06:58:30 <shachaf> zzo38: Want to watch me play NetHack?
06:58:35 <elliott> fuck yeah hermes

09:49:18 <elliott> ais523: no that's his poor imitation of monqy's style
09:49:24 <elliott> Ngevd: u realise u can /ns ghost ????
09:49:28 <elliott> /ns ghost ngevd password
09:49:33 <Ngevd> I careth not!
09:49:38 <Ngevd> I enjoy playing the waiting game
09:49:42 <shachaf> "I careth" :-(
09:49:42 <elliott> ais523: anyway, if you kick him he might shut up about wanting to be kicked :P
09:50:02 <shachaf> Ngevd: lernnrl2 enlgishsihs
09:50:12 <shachaf> Itsitstsi plsplelttt "care"
09:50:15 <ais523> shachaf: why don't you tell Ngevd your IRC password so he can refuse to ghost you?
09:50:20 <shachaf> (Seriously, "careth" is wrong.)
09:50:27 <shachaf> Ngevd: My IRC password is hi monqy
09:50:36 <shachaf> I feel bad every time I type it. :-(
09:50:48 <Ngevd> No it isn't
09:50:56 <shachaf> you found me out :(
09:51:07 <elliott> shachaf's account name is Shachaf
09:51:08 <elliott> just sayin
09:51:19 <ais523> Ngevd: you tried? :)
09:51:42 <Ngevd> I ALWAYS TRY
09:51:42 <elliott> ais523: can you op me?
09:51:43 <shachaf> Doesn't nickserv tell you when someone tries and fails to ns identify as you?
09:51:46 <elliott> just for five seconds or so
09:51:52 <Ngevd> FOR I AM NGEVD
09:51:56 <ais523> elliott: I can, but I have the feeling it would be a bad idea
09:52:02 <shachaf> ais523: DO IT
09:52:03 <ais523> shachaf: only tries and succeeds, IIRC
09:52:03 <elliott> ais523: come on, i'm responsible!
09:52:08 <shachaf> Life is for adventures.
09:52:14 <elliott> i'm even a lambdabot admin!
09:52:20 <ais523> elliott: you're acting like kerio, stop it
09:52:21 <shachaf> @admin - elliott
09:52:24 <elliott> :(
09:52:29 <elliott> shachaf isn't a lambdabot admin.
09:52:32 <elliott> he is a fake lambdabot admin.
09:52:36 <elliott> you should kick him for abuse of fake powers.
09:52:45 <elliott> @admin + elliott

09:54:17 <elliott> oh come on
09:54:20 <Ngevd> It would have been funny if it did
09:54:27 <ais523> elliott: you are missing the point of @/msg/
09:54:29 <ais523> it sends /messages/
09:54:33 <elliott> ais523: yes?
09:54:35 <ais523> kick, ban, op, etc aren't messages
09:54:35 <elliott> i was messaging chanserv
09:54:37 <elliott> yes they are
09:54:40 <elliott> if you're a chanserv op
09:54:45 <ais523> elliott: lambdabot isn't on the access list
09:54:51 <elliott> yes, but i had to try :(
09:54:52 <ais523> so can't send commands through chanserv
09:55:04 <elliott> you should put lambdabot on the access list
09:55:06 <elliott> i mean, it's lambdabot!

09:58:26 <elliott> ais523: how about opping me for less than a second? that's not enough time to do any mischief
09:58:52 <shachaf> elliott: How about ZERO SECONDS
09:59:05 <elliott> shachaf: I thought you *wanted* to be kicked.
09:59:08 <elliott> Not that I would kick you.
09:59:12 <elliott> Just commenting. In general.
10:00:15 <elliott> ais523: Op me so I can kick anyone who kicks shachaf.

10:00:47 <elliott> "As a side note, I seem to remember their being a message that came up when I created my account in saying accounts got deleted if the user didn't log in within 30 days (or something along them lines)." er...
10:01:07 <elliott> ais523: do we have a message along those lines?
10:01:12 <ais523> elliott: in which context? Esolang?
10:01:17 <elliott> yes

10:01:30 <ais523> it's possible there's a secret one, though
10:01:44 <elliott> nope, nothing like that on allmessagse
10:03:28 <elliott> ais523: hey, would it violate our privacy policy to disclose the last time someone logged in?
10:03:46 <ais523> not sure, what /is/ our privacy policy?
10:03:57 <ais523> it might violate UK law, if we don't explicitly say we're going to do that, though
10:04:07 <elliott> ais523: we don't have one; in fact, i explicitly removed a redlink to one from the footer
10:04:21 <elliott> hmm, but the record was made when Graue owned the site
10:04:41 <elliott> oh well, "they haven't used that accoutn since 2009" seems harmless and vague enough to me
10:04:43 <ais523> oh, right, you can't (in the UK) disclose private info about someone without warning them before you collecte dit
10:04:43 <elliott> *account
10:04:45 <ais523> it might violate UK law, if we don't explicitly say we're going to do that, though

10:04:53 <elliott> <ais523> it might violate UK law, if we don't explicitly say we're going to do that, though

10:05:38 <elliott> i just assume you're weird
10:05:57 <elliott> ais523: it's in the logs now, but "nope, they haven't used that account since 2009" is okay to disclose, right?
10:06:00 <ais523> sometimes I think of using correction stars
10:06:04 <ais523> elliott: not sure
10:06:12 <elliott> ais523: oh, I meant morally-okay, not legally-okay
10:06:16 <elliott> I suppose you're a terrible person to ask for that
10:06:20 <ais523> you know how ridiculously paranoid I am about that sort of thing
10:06:29 <ais523> and yes, I am
10:06:42 <ais523> "has not edited since 2009" is morally OK to disclose IMO, though
10:07:05 <elliott> well, /that's/ a bit obviou

12:59:42 <Deewiant> No more use for the server?
13:00:21 <elliott_> Deewiant: Well, I'm not paying for pyralspite *and* solidity.
13:00:35 <elliott_> I can run a Minecraft server on solidity, but I think most people are on Gregor's server nowadays?
13:01:06 <Deewiant> If you have two servers, can't you move your 617 megabytes to the other one?
13:02:27 <elliott_> Deewiant: I don't have an immediate use for the 617 megabytes; it's the Minecraft world (plus months of incremental backups).
13:02:46 <elliott_> I mean, I could move it to solidity, but I'd probably want to move it straight off again to make room.
13:02:55 <elliott_> (Not that I don't have lots of room free.)
13:03:04 <elliott_> Also, the privkeys for both are on different computers, and I'm lazy.
13:03:57 <Deewiant> If you just want to get the stuff off pyralspite quickly, solidity seems like the best choice, even if you then slowly transfer it to your own computer immediately thereafter.
13:04:49 <elliott_> You and your logic.
13:04:53 -!- nortti has joined.
13:05:03 <elliott_> I'd have to fiddle to transfer one of the privkeys safely. :(
13:05:38 <Deewiant> Why'd you get another server anyway?
13:06:08 <elliott_> Deewiant: The whole "taking over esolangs.org" thing. prgmr is slower than I wanted.
13:06:18 <elliott_> And the network connection isn't very good, especially from here in the UK.
13:06:54 <Deewiant> So where's solidity at?
13:07:02 <elliott_> Linode.

14:26:04 <itidus21> in general they should have an option to letterbox the youtube videoplayer interface when it is windowed mode, so that you don't have to spend screen realestate on the letterboxed bits

14:30:24 <ais523> no, I don't
14:30:30 <ais523> I was pretty young then
14:30:48 <ais523> it was back when RISC OS was actually a viable choice for the primary OS of an organisation
14:31:51 <nortti> yeah. I am thinking about using it as my main os for some time after it gets ported to Raspberry Pi
14:33:00 <ais523> from what I remember and what I've heard about it, it doesn't seem that unviable, but the filename conventions are bizarre by modern standards and nothing understands them, and I doubt application availability is too great atm…
14:33:10 <itidus21> ais523: this is basically what i have in mind http://oi42.tinypic.com/1949sh.jpg
14:33:44 <itidus21> notice how nice it looks having the toolbar lined up with the letterboxing.. either that or i'm a tad mad
14:33:54 <nortti> netsurf runs on it and so does gcc
14:34:07 <ais523> itidus21: then why is the letterboxing there at all?

14:43:18 <ais523> meh, win3.1 is coop multitasking with no memory protection too, IIRC
14:43:23 <ais523> and it's entirely usable
14:44:21 <RocketJSquirrel> Uhh, no.
14:44:29 <RocketJSquirrel> Windows 3 is preëmptive.
14:44:31 <nortti> ais523: and so is system 1-Mac OS 9
14:45:24 <ais523> RocketJSquirrel: ah, OK
14:46:27 <ais523> the docs I was working from were written as though cooperative versions of Windows were still in use
14:52:50 <ais523> anyway, IMO, preëmptive multitasking is just a workaround for buggy programs
14:52:57 <ais523> and cooperative would be better if programs were written correctly

14:55:15 <RocketJSquirrel> nortti: That is how all preëmptive OSes work.
14:56:39 <ais523> it'd be silly if processes had to go into a busyloop waiting to be preëmpted
14:56:59 <ais523> hmm, is the opposite of preëmptive coöperative?
14:59:32 <nortti> RockeJSquirrel: no. it will have clock inteerupt incrementing counter and if it reaches 16 for example it sensd plesase give up cpu time signal to the program and if it doesn't do it for another 16 clock interrupts it will be marked not respondig and then it will be preempted, but program can give up cpu at any time if it wants
14:59:45 <nortti> *sends
15:00:21 <ais523> nortti: SIGXCPU works pretty much exactly like that in Linux (although it gets killed, not pre-empted)
15:00:22 <RocketJSquirrel> nortti: OK, so what you've added to a preëmptive system is a nag signal.

17:09:47 <elliott> People who use bold-italics.
17:09:54 <elliott> Except when bolding the title of a work.
17:10:50 <ais523> what about doing them as parody?
17:11:05 <ais523> there's nothing wrong with doing something like this occasionally
17:11:13 <ais523> except that most clients don't interpret tab as toggle-italic, like Konversation does
17:13:26 <zzo38> My client interprets CTRL+B as bold, but doesn't interpret CTRL+I and just displays it "I" black on purple as it does with any unrecognized control character

19:39:51 <elliott> POLITICAL COMMENTARY
19:39:52 <elliott> was the person a giraffe
19:39:56 <elliott> i'm just asking the quesitons nobody has thought of
19:39:58 <elliott> uncovering
19:40:00 <elliott> the trtuhrth
19:40:03 <zzo38> Ngevd: I think that is even less likely than the other explanations but possible
19:40:38 <elliott> was the person who phoned
19:40:40 <elliott> actually dead
19:40:53 <elliott> ps. - the answer is 'yes'
19:41:59 <zzo38> Another thing done was a proper scientific experiment. They made a quantum noise random bit generator, connected to a red and green light. They saw the lights seem equal red/green approx. 50% each with many trials. Later on, a psychic came in and was asked to observe the lights and make it red all the time. It didn't turn out red all the time, but it did come red a statisticly significant 52% of the time.
19:42:34 <Ngevd> That person needs to try harder
19:43:35 <zzo38> (The equipment wasn't faulty; it had been tested.) After that, another one was made up, but instead was recorded on a tape and printed out (the printout was only viewed casually by the scientists, to ensure that the ink is OK); a psychic then came in and was asked to do the same thing (not knowing it was recorded); the same thing happened, and the lights did match the printout.
19:45:19 <zzo38> To me, after reading about the first experiment, this is the expected result (due to both spacetime relativity and quantum mechanics). Someone I told this to said he would not expect that; but I would think, spacetime is together rather than separate and relative rather than absolute (something shown by many mainstream experiments in the past). Perhaps this is one of the possible keys to unifying relativity with quantum mechanics.
19:46:02 <zzo38> (Note: The report did not mention relativity; or at least, I did not read anything in the report about relativity; I may have not read the entire report. The relativity is my own conclusion.)

19:51:20 <zzo38> elliott: I highly doubt the caller was dead. I think the caller is the one who wrote about this; so he may have been lying but not dead.

20:02:22 <nortti> did you know that almost half of people are worse at logical thinking than average?
20:02:43 <zzo38> nortti: By "average", do you mean the mean or median?
20:03:14 <Ngevd> Or mode
20:04:16 <nortti> as is x1+x2+...+xn/n
20:04:24 <Ngevd> Mean
20:05:08 <nortti> *(x1+x2+...+xn)/n
20:05:22 <zzo38> I didn't know that.
20:05:36 -!- elliott has quit (Read error: Operation timed out).
20:05:53 <zzo38> But I suppose you are probably correct
20:06:32 <itidus21> nortti: is that a joke?
20:06:36 <Ngevd> So... logical thinking is an approximately symmetrical distribution?
20:06:56 <nortti> itidus21: yes
20:07:38 <oerjan> can you sense how almost half of people have a lousier than average intuition?
20:08:08 <ais523> oerjan: *than median?
20:08:23 <ais523> oh no, you're using a different average deliberately for proof of symmetry
20:09:08 <oerjan> ais523: if your intuition is good enough to distinguish mathematical averages, i'll be impressed
20:09:41 <ais523> oerjan: in very skewed distributions, mode from mean is pretty easy to distinguish intuitively
20:09:50 <ais523> and in distributions with large outliers, median from mean is
20:10:09 * oerjan wonders if anyone has measured the distribution of intuition
20:15:41 <zzo38> Is it measurable?
20:16:14 <oerjan> that was my second wondering. apart from the myers-briggs test (which is only binary for intuition), i don't know
20:20:28 -!- Ngevd has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
20:22:25 <oerjan> hm wait it's probably not really binary, it's just that the INTP etc. classes have only N vs. S

20:32:59 <olsner> egojsout makes opera use infinite ram :(
20:33:13 <zzo38> I am advancing a D&D level which skill should I select?
20:33:52 <oerjan> rocket science
20:34:05 <olsner> brain surgery
20:34:30 <zzo38> There is neither skill
20:34:55 <oerjan> brain surgery might be plausible, in a frankenstein monster way
20:34:56 <zzo38> Profession? Diplomacy? Decipher Script? Spellcraft?
20:36:29 <zzo38> Actually I already selected Decipher Script and should select one more
20:36:32 <oerjan> Dire Butterfly Collection
20:37:42 <oerjan> whatever you do, don't remove those pins
20:38:04 <zzo38> That's good, because I don't have any pins
20:38:29 <oerjan> you need pins for dire butterfly collection, duh
20:38:33 <zzo38> O, I know which one, I will select Disable Device
20:38:42 <oerjan> preferably enchanted ones, i think
20:40:36 <oerjan> Recipher Script, for when you realize reading that scroll was a _really_ bad idea
20:41:58 <zzo38> Which Illithid Savant Extras feature should I select? (Read the current situation if you want; also, I have the text of the Extras features in another file)
20:42:47 <oerjan> you're an illithid?
20:43:09 <zzo38> oerjan: Read it for full information about the game
20:43:31 <oerjan> too lazy
20:43:49 <zzo38> OK
20:43:55 <zzo38> I will ask someone else for suggestions
20:44:39 <oerjan> that may be best, as i don't know much more about d&d than what i've learned through d&d comics and a little wikipedia
20:45:24 <zzo38> The file "level20.tex" (and its compiled "level20.dvi") describes the complete story and all character sheets; it is possible to learn a few things about a game from such a transcript
20:45:31 <oerjan> but there was an illithid in one of them, a fairly evil character
20:46:23 <oerjan> actually there was an illithid in oots too but that was just an enemy encountered
20:47:01 <oerjan> but yafgc has regular evil characters (but also good ones)
20:47:16 <zzo38> I have been assigned by a dwarf who freed me from being enslaved by other illithids, and also freed a doppelganger for the same assignment, to find and kill the emerald monster (some kind of demon); who has just been found now. The doppelganger is another player character who has quit
20:47:58 <zzo38> (The dwarf was also a slave)
20:48:27 <zzo38> This means I have been able to take absolutely nothing when escaping; so I am wizard with no spellbooko
20:49:16 <Phantom_Hoover> NOTE TO SELF: playing TF2 is hard if you don't heat your room.
20:49:58 <oerjan> who needs working fingers anyway
20:50:34 <zzo38> Doing jigsaw puzzles with your feet is cheating! (At least, this is what someone at school once said)
20:53:40 <oerjan> i don't think it counts if you don't have working fingers
20:55:47 <zzo38> Do you like some of these ideas for D&D game scenario?
20:55:52 <zzo38> * The church has run out of money.
20:56:03 <zzo38> * The king is allergic to magic and wishes all spellcasters (arcane, divine, and psionic) destroyed (including the royal spellcasters).
20:56:19 <zzo38> * The king wishes to eliminate all beholders from the city, even though only (exactly) half of them have done anything wrong. The problem with this is that there are an odd number of them!
20:56:23 <zzo38> * Airplanes appear and nobody understands them.
20:56:28 <zzo38> * The sun rises in the wrong place.
20:56:56 <zzo38> * A dwarf walks in to a bar (ouch). Heal him, please. (From WoTC forums)
20:57:07 <zzo38> * Help a beholder find his lost monocle/glasses. (From WoTC forums)
20:58:04 <zzo38> * The player character's equipment has been stolen and then another thief has stolen it from that thief too
21:02:23 * oerjan realizes tungsten and rhenium have high enough boiling temperatures that they might _not_ boil on the sun's surface
21:02:34 <oerjan> just barely
21:03:19 <oerjan> hm wait that ignores pressure
21:04:02 * oerjan is reading today's iwc annotation
21:16:45 <zzo38> I have selected "Learn Plans"
21:18:22 <zzo38> I found a castle with no windows, and the road that leads to it leads nowhere else; there is dense forest around it. There is no water source either.
21:20:47 <zzo38> oerjan: You have answered me before about the counterpoint :: x -> f (f x); stuff; do you know what kind of laws or other thing about it? Does this work? contramap counterpoint . counterpoint = id = contramap counterpoint . ccmap counterpoint (where ccmap = contramap . contramap)
21:22:15 <oerjan> i'm sorry, my brain is not sufficiently awake for that
21:22:32 <zzo38> What time do you wake up?
21:22:48 <oerjan> it's not about sleeping, it's about being tired
21:22:57 <oerjan> (and not from lack of sleep)
21:23:45 <zzo38> It resembles one of the monad laws with contramap counterpoint in place of join, counterpoint in place of return, and ccmap in place of fmap.
