00:05:42 <elliott> Hi pooppy!
00:06:58 <coppro> HI
00:21:56 <RocketJSquirrel> Sitten sanoin, "Puuro? Oletko hull–?! Oh ..."
00:24:12 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: An excellent example of Finnish.
00:25:08 <RocketJSquirrel> Oh, I put the quotes in the wrong place.
00:25:11 <RocketJSquirrel> Sitten sanoin, "Puuro? Oletko hull–?!" Oh ...
00:25:47 <elliott> Wait, that's actual Finnish?
00:25:48 <elliott> Fuck that.
00:25:52 <elliott> I deal only in the finest fake Finnish.
00:25:57 <RocketJSquirrel> lol
00:26:12 <RocketJSquirrel> You'll have to ask fizzie if it's real, but Google Translate thinks it is X-D
00:26:56 <elliott> Then I said, 'porridge? Hull Are you? "Oh ...
00:27:05 <elliott> In...deed.
00:27:19 <RocketJSquirrel> It mistranslated it because I cut off the word "hullu" (to match the original quote)
00:27:25 <shachaf> ensin sinä, sitten minä
00:27:46 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: What's the quote?
00:27:53 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: You don't want to know 8-D
00:28:12 <shachaf> Olen hullu.
00:28:33 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: Don'tn't I?
00:28:34 <elliott> Okay.
00:28:53 <RocketJSquirrel> shachaf: Oletko hulluna kaurapuuroa?
00:29:15 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: "And then I said, 'Oatmeal? Are you craz–?!' Oh ..."
00:29:20 <RocketJSquirrel> — Pinkie Pie
00:29:30 <shachaf> RocketJSquirrel: Crazy about oatmeal?
00:29:32 <shachaf> I THINK NOT
00:30:02 <RocketJSquirrel> shachaf: Olette ansainneet Pinkie Pie hyväksyntää!
00:30:31 <shachaf> RocketJSquirrel: I wish I spoke Finnish. :-(
00:30:38 <RocketJSquirrel> So do(n't) I ^^
00:30:52 <shachaf> RocketJSquirrel: WELL YOU'RE NOT A CITIZEN OF FINLAND, ARE YOU?
00:31:05 <elliott> http://stackoverflow.com/a/4247184/1097181 I like how this answer is wasted on a question that *doesn't even contain the word "number"*.
00:31:20 <RocketJSquirrel> shachaf: Nnnope
00:31:23 <elliott> I mean, come on. How hard can it be to find a question with "number" in it to put that on?
00:31:29 <elliott> `? finland
00:31:32 <HackEgo> Finland is a European country. There are two people in Finland, and at least five of them are in this channel. Corun drives the bus.

11:01:39 <ais523> hmm, Raymond Chen says that Windows 3.1 was cooperative not preëmptive, so I guess that's a reliable source for my opinion after all
11:12:02 <fizzie> You could also just Wikipedia, it's [insert large number here]% likely to be correct.
11:12:21 <fizzie> s/just/just trust/
11:13:13 <fizzie> Well, or Microsoft. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/117567 - "Under Windows 3.x and Windows for Workgroups 3.x, 16-bit applications multitask cooperatively by frequently yielding control of the CPU to other programs."
11:13:42 <fizzie> But then again, what would *they* know about Windows.
11:17:55 <ais523> someone was telling me, in here I think, that it was preëmptive, even though I remember it being cooperative having written programs for it
11:25:48 <fizzie> Which rule is responsible for making it preëmptive but not coöperative?
11:26:16 <fizzie> Where "it" is no longer Windows 3.x.
11:29:30 <kmc> well in the real world you do see "coöperative"
11:29:42 <kmc> "preëmptive" is a nice pun on that, which went over my head :/
11:30:41 <kmc> but afaik both are legitimate use of the diaeresis
11:35:05 <kmc> not to be confused with diuresis
11:36:40 <fizzie> Or diarrhea.

17:12:03 <elliott> [[According to a recent blog post, Apple discovered that Microsoft had planted a spy in their organisation, and deliberately leaked a copy of obsolete System 7 source code, machine-translated to INTERCAL, claiming it was the latest build of OS X 10.2. Bill Gates initially fell for the trick and seriously told his programmers to incorporate the INTERCAL code into Windows Vista. JIP | Talk 05:39, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
17:12:04 <elliott> Due to INTERCAL's limited I/O capabilities, this seems unlikely. I can't imagine anyone writing an OS in INTERCAL-72, and neither C-INTERCAL or CLC-INTERCAL can do graphics as far as I know, so presumably this is a new secret flavour of INTERCAL? --ais523 09:49, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
17:12:04 <elliott> Yes, it seems pretty clear that the blog was meant to be a joke. This is probably why blogs aren't considered reliable sources; I'd recommend not putting this information in the article. --ais523 12:50, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

18:47:07 <RocketJSquirrel> Well more than three.
18:47:11 <RocketJSquirrel> At least six.
18:47:24 <RocketJSquirrel> Well, to be fair, it's more like three, each of which have two incompatible versions.
18:47:43 <RocketJSquirrel> Or four if you also include the stdlib axis.

19:08:56 <fizzie> I saw something about the end of ceefax or something somewhere.
19:09:05 <elliott> Yes, it's dying with analogue.
19:10:19 <fizzie> Ah, page 697 is related.

19:12:08 <elliott> Well, it's more direct than most shutdown announcements.
19:13:36 <Phantom_Hoover> oh no, ceefax is gone???
19:13:39 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: In October.
19:13:52 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Once analogue shuts off.
19:14:00 <Phantom_Hoover> :'(
19:14:15 <fizzie> Incidentally, we're switching from our current "there's a set price you need to pay if you have a TV set" model to a "public TV service is funded by a specific, progressively-graded tax you have to pay no matter what" model, so I might be digging up my DVB stuff from storage, given that we'd anyway be paying for the privilege.
19:14:20 <Phantom_Hoover> one of these days i'll have to ceefax again
19:14:53 <RocketJSquirrel> wut
19:15:06 <fizzie> There used to be more context in teletext, here, all kinds of viewer letters and whatnot.
19:15:09 <Phantom_Hoover> silly american
19:15:13 <RocketJSquirrel> <-- so confused by non-private models of television broadcasting X-D
19:15:15 <Phantom_Hoover> you know not the wonder of ceefax
19:15:20 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: ceefax, v. to see facts
19:15:43 <elliott> fizzie: In the UK, we have the former model, except the regulators just assume that everybody owns a television.
19:15:50 <elliott> And sends you nastygrams if you don't pay them regardless.
19:16:10 <elliott> Also they have scary adverts on TV warning you about how their DATABASE will let them CATCH YOU if you don't pay with ominous music.
19:16:31 <Phantom_Hoover> (Ominous music is a widely-accepted fiat currency in the UK.)
19:16:55 <RocketJSquirrel> See, with the American model, at least we don't have that ... just nine minutes of ads per every twenty-one minutes of content (and/or credits)
19:16:55 -!- MoALTz_ has joined.
19:17:02 <fizzie> Oh, they do send letters for everyone here too. Though they do say "you can disregard this letter if you don't have a system capable for watching TV" in them.
19:17:14 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: By "advert", I mean "thing that appears in-between programs".
19:17:28 <fizzie> We're all red in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_licence
19:17:28 <nortti> fizzie: actually if I remember correctly you only have to pay if you have radio, TV or computer withvinternet access (potential tv). Doesn't need to be functional though
19:17:42 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: Yes, I know.
19:17:55 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: I know you know, but feel the need to point it out to make you feel inferior.
19:17:57 <elliott> <fizzie> Oh, they do send letters for everyone here too. Though they do say "you can disregard this letter if you don't have a system capable for watching TV" in them.

19:18:13 -!- MoALTz has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds).
19:18:17 <fizzie> nortti: Isn't that pretty much what I said? And you don't need to pay for a radio receiver.
19:18:19 <elliott> fizzie: I gather here it's more like "If you DON'T own a TV and you're still reading this letter, then MAYBE YOU SHOULD PROVE IT??? Otherwise we'll keep being nasty."
19:18:28 <Phantom_Hoover> Um, ISTR only ever seeing those ads on Channel 4.
19:18:35 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Hmm, really?
19:18:43 <elliott> I swear I've seen them on the BBC too.
19:18:51 <elliott> Well, whatever, why are you letting facts get in the way?
19:18:54 <Phantom_Hoover> I don't know, now that I think about it it really makes no sense.
19:19:04 <elliott> Actually, you might be right...
19:19:06 <elliott> Bah, whatever.
19:19:11 <Phantom_Hoover> "PAY FOR OUR MAIN COMPETITOR OR ELSE"
19:19:27 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Well, erm, you need a TV license to watch 4 too, I think.
19:19:41 <elliott> Because if you can watch 4, you have the ability to watch the BBC, so you have to pay even if you don't want to.
19:19:46 <Phantom_Hoover> Duh.
19:19:58 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott, Phantom_Hoover: The really funny thing about how American TV works is that in some of the "premiere" stations that you have to pay your cable company extra to get, they don't air any ads, but to allow their shows to be picked up for syndication, they're still 21 or 42 minutes long :)
19:20:00 <elliott> (Don't all the terrestrial channels get some money from the license fee?)
19:20:01 <Phantom_Hoover> But most of the licence fee goes to the BBC (although 4 gets some of it).
19:20:26 <Phantom_Hoover> ITV and 4 get some, definitely.
19:20:34 <elliott> Why does 5 exist, again?
19:20:37 <Phantom_Hoover> No idea about 5, everybody hates 5.
19:20:49 <fizzie> Or a computer with Internet access if you don't have some sort of a video-over-the-net thing for it. (They used to have a fancy "send the DVB TV streams over multicast USP" IPTV setup at the university student village.)
19:20:55 <Phantom_Hoover> RocketJSquirrel, comment on superfluousness of 5th channel.
19:21:09 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Well, to be fair, everyone hates ITV too.
19:21:09 <RocketJSquirrel> Phantom_Hoover: It is so superfluous!
19:21:48 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Did you know that ITV4 is the greatest simulation of ennui ever created?
19:21:59 <elliott> Or was that ITV3.
19:22:03 <elliott> It might be both.
19:22:04 <Phantom_Hoover> Anyway, the BBC's adlessness gets annoying when there's a film or something else long on and you never have the chance for tea.

19:22:45 <Phantom_Hoover> Probably both, and AFAIK ITV2 is just ITV with a time delay and rearranged.
19:22:48 <olsner> BBC doesn't have tea breaks? O.O
19:23:04 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes, it's a national disgrace.
19:23:32 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Nah, ITV2 is ITV1 except crappier.
19:23:44 <elliott> I think they do a lot of repeating of ITV1 when they don't have something worse to show.
19:24:01 <Phantom_Hoover> Excuse me, I've seen TV Burp on ITV2.

19:27:25 <nortti> sorry if this question is stupid but can I staticaly link LGPL library to my WTFPL program?
19:27:37 <fizzie> RocketJSquirrel: Also this one Finnish channel (SuomiTV) is changing to "FOX TV", becoming part of a "FOX International Channels", which is part of the Fox Entertainment Group, which I suppose is one of your things?
19:27:40 <elliott> If your program is C, yes.
19:27:43 <elliott> That's the point of the LGPL.
19:27:51 <elliott> If it's not C, depends on the implementation details of your compiler!
19:28:08 <elliott> With GHC, LGPL = GPL because of its compilation model.
19:28:34 <nortti> It is a C program
19:28:46 <RocketJSquirrel> fizzie: Hahahah you have FOX now you poor poor country.
19:29:06 <elliott> We have Fox on Sky.
19:29:08 <elliott> It's great.
19:29:16 <elliott> Except it's just the American one.
19:29:27 <RocketJSquirrel> fizzie: FOX is the one that presents conservative rabble as news and for entertainment allows some shows to run for twenty-two years while good ones get canceled in the first seasons.
19:29:34 <fizzie> I don't think ours will be "real FOX", though.
19:29:37 <Phantom_Hoover> Pretty sure there aren't many countries the long arm of Murdoch has escaped.
19:30:10 <RocketJSquirrel> FOX Iran
19:30:46 <Phantom_Hoover> The irony is that its news has an Iranian conservative slant.

19:32:13 <fizzie> They're not going to be showing "FOX News", for example, I don't think. At least this page says they're still just sending the STT news broadcast. But they will start some Fox Entertainment shows, like that zombie thing.

19:37:46 <elliott> What's the third field in an http access log?
19:37:54 <elliott> It's usually a -, as in "ip - -"
19:38:02 <zzo38> elliott: It depends how it is configured; look up the configuration.
19:38:22 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: I was just about to say "-" :)
19:38:25 <RocketJSquirrel> Just to be snarky.
19:39:00 <elliott> zzo38: I think the format is standard...
19:39:14 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: I have no counterexamples, so I don't know.
19:39:43 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: I have one >_>
19:40:28 <RocketJSquirrel> - (%l)
19:40:28 <RocketJSquirrel> The "hyphen" in the output indicates that the requested piece of information is not available. In this case, the information that is not available is the RFC 1413 identity of the client determined by identd on the clients machine. This information is highly unreliable and should almost never be used except on tightly controlled internal networks. Apache httpd will not even attempt to determine this information unless IdentityCheck is set to On.
19:40:53 <elliott> Soo... why would it ever be @^Y@+,@~q|wpmymzz2()2|pq{jvk@-1*,@lvo.(,1-+*1)+1&,@'/ in an nginx log >_>
19:40:57 <elliott> Pretty sure nginx doesn't make identd requests.
19:41:05 <RocketJSquirrel> lol
19:41:14 <RocketJSquirrel> Is it literally that string, or are you just implying that it's nonsense?
19:41:32 <RocketJSquirrel> Ohwaitwait.
19:41:37 <fizzie> RocketJSquirrel: Isn't %l the second field in Apache "combined" format, not third?
19:41:56 <RocketJSquirrel> Right, just noticed that my format was a bit askew since I prepent the vhost.
19:41:59 <RocketJSquirrel> *prepend
19:42:02 <RocketJSquirrel> So that's the second.
19:42:08 <RocketJSquirrel> This is the userid of the person requesting the document as determined by HTTP authentication. The same value is typically provided to CGI scripts in the REMOTE_USER environment variable. If the status code for the request (see below) is 401, then this value should not be trusted because the user is not yet authenticated. If the document is not password protected, this part will be "-" just like the previous one.
19:42:27 <elliott> I can assure you those documents are not password-protected...
19:42:46 <RocketJSquirrel> Maybe nginx records a given user-ID even if there's no authentication?
19:45:10 <fizzie> nginx "combined" format always has a dash as second, and $remote_user as third; it doesn't exactly list details when that's set, but I guess it's possible it gets set if the client sends an auth header while the page doesn't care.
19:46:06 <elliott> Weird.
19:46:13 * elliott wonders who's doing that :P
19:47:50 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: Did I just manage to drop some nonsense in the logs?

No other language that the author knows of is implemented like this, because it would be idiotic. (more…)

20:00:10 <RocketJSquirrel> The "No other language that the author knows of" bit is about OO+stack, not about OO+arithmetic-in-OO, which isn't so unusual.
20:00:14 -!- MoALTz has joined.
20:00:21 <elliott> Err, right.
20:00:43 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: I don't like how the first mention of OO there is behind a "weakly" and qualifiers, though.
20:00:52 <elliott> Seems like that can be omitted from a front-page intro.

20:02:13 <RocketJSquirrel> Not bad.

20:03:56 <RocketJSquirrel> I'm so special *weeps*
20:04:45 <nortti> mastodon linux looks pretty awesome
20:05:42 <nortti> if it just used sonething more modern suck as 2.4 as kernel I would probably switch to it
20:05:50 <elliott> Now http://esolangs.org/wiki/Main_Page contains a previously-featuredlist \o/
20:05:51 <elliott> *featured list
20:06:02 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: I'm still effing with your logs by the way.
20:07:56 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: :(
20:08:24 <fizzie> RocketJSquirrel: Did you try out an embedded newline in the username?
20:08:46 <RocketJSquirrel> fizzie: 8-D
20:09:05 -!- ais523 has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
20:09:51 <elliott> fizzie: Is there a nice Unicode character that looks like a tick in a circle or such?
20:10:31 <fizzie> I don't know about a circle; there are some official checkbox-mark-things.
20:11:12 <fizzie> And of course you could have a combining circle around a tick.
20:11:33 <elliott> Right, but I want a filled-circle-with-hollow-check.
20:13:15 <RocketJSquirrel> fizzie: Ohwait, the username is just a header, so newlines wouldn't work anyway :(
20:13:24 <fizzie> RocketJSquirrel: It's base64'd.
20:13:31 <RocketJSquirrel> It is???
20:13:47 <fizzie> RocketJSquirrel: In order to make any kind of funky password header-safe.
20:13:58 <RocketJSquirrel> Ahyeah.
20:14:03 <nortti> "You should not be using libc4 for anything any more. If you do use it, we will hunt you down and execute you as an example to others. (Not really, but you get the point...)"
20:14:03 <fizzie> The header contents are "user:pass", base64'd.
20:17:45 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: Take a look at the top-right of http://esolangs.org/wiki/Glass 8D
20:17:52 * elliott makes it actually go in the top area like it's supposed to.
20:19:14 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: That is the ugliest check mark I've seen in my entire life.
20:19:26 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: :(
20:19:27 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: Screenshot?
20:20:06 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: Whoah, it just moved >_O
20:20:17 <elliott> Sorry, refresh again.
20:20:19 <RocketJSquirrel> And it moved back
20:20:26 <elliott> Yeah, I moved the CSS to common.css.

20:21:56 <elliott> Holy wow

20:26:15 <RocketJSquirrel> I think I only have that symbol in a bitmap font on this work machine >_>
20:29:58 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: Looks beautiful on Android ;)
20:30:30 <elliott> http://esolangs.org/wiki/Glass?useskin=monobook ;; lol
20:32:18 <RocketJSquirrel> No, really log out!
20:33:45 <Sgeo> I have a math problem I want a computer answer to
20:33:52 <fizzie> It looks rectangular to this borwser.
20:33:57 <Sgeo> Out of habit, I reach for GHCi rather than any Common Lisp thing
20:34:03 <Sgeo> How am I ever going to learn CL?
20:35:48 <elliott> fizzie: Oh right.
20:35:55 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: What browser you using?
20:36:16 <elliott> fizzie: And you/
20:36:51 <elliott> fizzie: Try now
20:37:17 <fizzie> Uh, this was this N900 not-very-new-Gecko-based "MicroB" thing. I'm kinda resting. Looked similar still.
20:37:46 <elliott> Might need a cache-clear.
20:37:48 <elliott> But okay.
20:37:57 <elliott> Sgeo: How does the icon on http://esolangs.org/wiki/Glass look to you?
20:38:16 <Sgeo> Checkmark?
20:38:21 <Sgeo> What is the checkmark for?
20:38:45 <fizzie> elliott: Oh, right, now it circulatified.
20:39:07 <nortti> also rectangular in opera mini. And MicroB uses gecko 1.9.2 (Same as Firefox 3.6)
20:39:30 <elliott> Sgeo: Hover over and/or click it.
20:39:53 <Sgeo> Ok, so it's a featured language
20:40:03 <Sgeo> What am I supposed to be noticing, exactly?
20:40:28 <fizzie> http://zem.fi/~fis/checky.png
20:40:44 <Sgeo> Mine looks a bit different
20:41:05 <Sgeo> Mine is completely contained within the circle, it does not touch the edge
20:41:11 <elliott> Yes, fizzie has bad fonts.
20:41:15 <elliott> Sgeo: Screenshot would be appreciated
20:41:20 <elliott> It's just all CSSy so there's a lot of possible variation.

20:47:24 <Ngevd> Wow, my suggestion was chosen to be the Featured Language?
20:47:33 <elliott> ur rich now
20:47:36 <Ngevd> I feel honoured!
20:47:45 <Ngevd> Even though I did nothing to create the language!
20:48:35 <itidus21> You probably helped.
20:48:49 <Ngevd> Glass was created in 2005.
20:48:51 <elliott> Ngevd: How does the check icon on the article look to you?
20:49:04 <Ngevd> It makes it look fairtrade?
20:49:09 <itidus21> Ngevd: and have you know gregor in 2005?
20:49:18 <elliott> EXCELLENT
20:49:23 <elliott> (A screenshot would be helpful.)
20:49:35 <Ngevd> I first heard about esolangs in 2007 at the earliest
20:49:42 * elliott 2006
20:51:00 <Ngevd> I don't believe I have ever met Gregor, and if I did, it would have most likely been in 1998 when I was 3

20:55:07 <Ngevd> Do I?
20:55:15 <elliott> Ngevd: What OS do you use?
20:55:24 <Ngevd> At the moment, Windows 7

21:40:44 <nortti> clang looks interesting. Can it build a working linux system
21:42:22 <elliott> It could build a sorta-working kernel at one point, IIRC.
21:42:39 <elliott> But nothing except gcc and icc can build a fully-functional kernel, IIRC, and I believe icc requires patches.
21:45:44 <zzo38> GCC can compile to some targets which clang doesn't have. I asked them to add those (and other) targets to LLVM but they didn't do so.

22:16:45 <impomatic> Hi Elliott, I've just been busy.
22:17:12 <impomatic> Now I'm back to pester people about Programming Games :-P
22:17:32 <RocketJSquirrel> impomatic: You're only allowed to if you make it to top three in the BFJoust hill.
22:18:00 <elliott> Good luck with that.
22:18:27 <elliott> impomatic: Uhh... what happened since you were last here... I took over hosting the wiki, and... Gregor became RocketJSquirrel and won the IOCCC, and that's about it.
22:18:58 <elliott> (Also, ais523 considers BF Joust a solved game now, although you might have been around for that.)
22:19:20 <RocketJSquirrel> I may switch back to Gregor at some point, probably soonish.
22:19:26 <RocketJSquirrel> I do like having my name be my IRC nick.
22:19:57 * elliott too
22:20:39 <olsner> I think it would feel weird to use my name as my IRC nick
22:20:48 <elliott> Wait, your name isn't olsner?
22:20:53 <elliott> Can you... fix that?
22:21:22 <zzo38> The WHOIS request says "salparot" in the real names field

22:22:12 <elliott> olsner's alparot
22:22:36 <zzo38> Actually a lot of thing happened, not only that
22:23:03 <impomatic> Is FYB considered solved?
22:23:13 <olsner> hmm, dunno if I can fix that, you are not entirely free to choose your name here... and olsner is used as a surname, which might be an obstacle
22:24:08 <olsner> but at least it's not offensive
22:24:41 <olsner> besides, I don't want to change my name to olsner
22:24:51 <impomatic> Is the FYB hill broken? report.txt is empty.
22:25:29 <elliott> impomatic: FYB is solved, yes.
22:25:38 <elliott> Someone came in here and completely broke it in like 2009, IIRC.

22:25:56 <RocketJSquirrel> Yeah, it's busted :( :( :(

22:28:37 <Madoka-Kaname> @ sets the data pointer to the instruction pointer
22:28:41 <elliott> Wait, was it Madoka-Kaname who broke it?
22:29:03 <Madoka-Kaname> I'm referring to the code itself!!
22:29:07 <Madoka-Kaname> As in, balance and stuff....
22:29:28 <elliott> No, I mean "broke" as in "solved".
22:29:29 <zzo38> Please tell me if you have any computer game to qualify for The CGA Collection.
22:29:33 <elliott> Like you break a cryptographic hash.
22:29:40 <Madoka-Kaname> Kinda??
22:29:48 <Madoka-Kaname> I looked through the source code and noticed @ does dp=ip :x
22:30:17 <elliott> `pastelogs Lymia
22:30:29 <zzo38> And files for Internet Quiz Engine
22:30:32 <Madoka-Kaname> Which means you can plant :@@+!; over all the other program's commit instructions

22:31:26 <RocketJSquirrel> It's extremely impractical to place '@'s in the opponent's code.
22:31:26 <olsner> is it im/possible to break bfjoust?
22:31:29 <Madoka-Kaname> elliott, http://codu.org/eso/fyb/in_egobot/Lymia_evil.fyb
22:31:31 <zzo38> O, and what else happened, if you defect?
22:31:33 <Madoka-Kaname> This is the logicex killer
22:31:52 <zzo38> itidus21: What is this 20mb hdd?
22:32:00 <itidus21> my qbasic experiments
22:32:02 <RocketJSquirrel> I don't really recall how FYB is broken, but that it is, and I don't really care X-D
22:32:11 <itidus21> nothing fancy
22:32:39 <zzo38> itidus21: Still tell me what you have (even if you cannot find the actual programs)
22:32:52 <Madoka-Kaname> RocketJSquirrel, you can very reliably make a program that will almost guaranteed win against a certain targeted program.
22:33:08 <elliott> Madoka-Kaname: Uh... that's it?
22:33:14 <elliott> Because I'm pretty certain that's true of BF Joust, too.
22:33:15 <itidus21> i made a pong game fixed to 6 angles.. NE,E,SE,NW,W,SW
22:33:23 <itidus21> :P
22:33:33 <Madoka-Kaname> elliott, well... Not only that
22:34:10 <Madoka-Kaname> It's not 'broken' but, you can set the data pointer to the instruction pointer.
22:34:14 <itidus21> i made a text based bomberman once in 320x200x256 or whatever res it was
22:34:37 <itidus21> it also had toggle-able gates for some reason
22:34:40 <RocketJSquirrel> Right, that allows faster-than-light travel in the data pointer.
22:34:42 <RocketJSquirrel> Which is terribad.
22:35:02 <itidus21> i forget what the ai could do... if it could only follow you or if it could itself drop bombs
22:35:15 <itidus21> probably only follow
22:35:46 <zzo38> I think 320x200x256 is SCREEN 13
22:36:03 <Madoka-Kaname> You can basically fill your code with :@@:[>++!];

22:36:27 <itidus21> i made a simple maze thing where it has up to 3 black and white wireframe doors displayed and you select one of them.. and go from room to room
22:36:54 <itidus21> zzo38: no i can't :P buried as in either trashed or full of cobwebs

22:38:06 <itidus21> umm.. i did a simple gradius style thing where a triangle thing shoots at circles with line segments.. no powerups or any such things
22:39:18 <itidus21> i was trying to do a mario style thing with ascii blocks but never got very far
22:39:22 <zzo38> Another program of interest which will be accepted in The CGA Collection would be a Free (as in FSF) program in C which can compile the QBASIC programs which are part of The CGA Collection on multiple target platforms. Other than that, all programs must be DOS games using SCREEN 0 or SCREEN 1, 40x25 text, using only feature of IBM Color Graphics Adapter, must have short documentation in plain ASCII text, be public domain, have source-codes available, and fit o
22:39:38 <zzo38> Additional levels for the existing games are also acceptable.
22:40:36 <Madoka-Kaname> !fyb hi http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49064620/hi.fyb
22:40:46 <itidus21> zzo38: i think i only liked screen 13 for the way it made text nice and large and blocky..
22:41:05 <itidus21> the bombermany thing in question wasnt really very colourful to be honest
22:41:11 <impomatic> !fyb dumb +[>[-]++++++++++++++!]
22:41:19 <Madoka-Kaname> There's no - instruction

22:42:21 <zzo38> All games submitted must compile using QuickBasic Extended, even if a Free compiler is included as well (in which case, both compilers must work on the program).
22:42:23 <elliott> slowpoke's still at the top, I see.
22:42:35 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: You should make a new warrior. C'moooon.
22:42:46 <itidus21> zzo38: also there was a game i called weeder, which was a 5x5 thing.. you had to collect these text weeds.. and avoid an invisible hole
22:43:11 <itidus21> i was so deluded at the time i imagined myself selling extra levels
22:43:21 <Madoka-Kaname> I wonder if BFJoust is easy to do with a proper evolutionary algorithm.
22:43:27 <zzo38> itidus21: You could also use SCREEN 0 with WIDTH 40, 25 if you are only using a 40x25 text grid with no more than 16 colors; I suggest using it if it will work for your program
22:45:03 <itidus21> zzo38: well.. i have nothing to show really.. but yeah thats what i got up to in qbasic all those years ago
22:45:53 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: C'mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon. (Pronounced "k-moon".)
22:46:02 <zzo38> Have you seen The CGA Collection? Fell free to make additional levels and even modifications to the programs if you want to; everything in there is public domain
22:46:15 <itidus21> i find the uhhh.. procedural languages kind of obstructive to making games to be honest
22:46:28 <itidus21> i learned to think programming with qbasic

23:04:50 <zzo38> itidus21: I find QBASIC is not bad for making these computer games, though.
23:07:58 <itidus21> yah
23:08:08 <itidus21> games...
23:08:24 <calamari> "description of score calculation"... lies
23:09:39 <calamari> more like "incomplete description of score calculation omitting vital details"
23:10:20 <itidus21> zzo38: i don't think the more serious languages ever had games in mind..
23:10:30 <itidus21> basic kinda slips through as dumb but useful
23:10:45 <itidus21> not to say basic was made for games :-s
23:12:14 <calamari> nothing wrong with basic
23:12:39 <zzo38> The format of CGACOLL.DOC is plain text wrapped at 75 columns, so if you send a game program to include then you should also send a CGACOLL.DOC entry.
23:12:51 <calamari> just needs a good compiler, like any other lang
23:15:21 -!- simpleirc has joined.
23:15:41 <itidus21> it's surprising to me how slow interpreters are
23:15:44 <zzo38> calamari: There is FreeBASIC, but for my purposes it has too many differences to QBASIC; also, it is not written in C, and doesn't easily compile to some other systems as far as I can tell
23:16:15 <itidus21> the interpretation process just doesn't seem that costly in theory
23:16:22 <calamari> zzo38: microsoft actually did a decent job on their old ms-dos basic compilers
23:17:09 <zzo38> calamari: Yes they did, but they are proprietary and are only for DOS computers.
23:17:30 <calamari> of course
23:17:30 -!- simpleirc has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
23:17:48 <itidus21> zzo38: have you ever seen those usborne books about basic?
23:18:05 <zzo38> But I do use them to make up these computer games. However I would like to have the Free one as well, which, in addition to freedom, is also not only for DOS computers, but can still compile the games in CGA Collection.
23:18:09 <zzo38> itidus21: No
23:18:10 -!- Patashu has joined.
23:19:01 <calamari> zzo38: nothing stopping you from writing it :)
23:19:06 <itidus21> ahh.. well as you probably know many many books have been published about basic. these books though had characteristic childishness with drawings of robots used to express how the pc works
23:19:22 <zzo38> calamari: Yes I may do something like that, possibly
23:19:35 <zzo38> itidus21: I have seen some of those.
23:19:44 <itidus21> heres a sample cover http://ia600805.us.archive.org/zipview.php?zip=/19/items/olcovers554/olcovers554-L.zip&file=5540311-L.jpg
23:19:55 <calamari> zzo38: use lex/yacc (or similar) and make your life easier hehe
23:20:30 <itidus21> ive downloaded quite a few of them.. but eventually i found my white whale.. one of the books that i can't find
23:20:32 <zzo38> calamari: I have never needed those before.
23:20:46 <itidus21> i like the whole 'basic' culture
23:20:56 <calamari> zzo38: of course they're not needed, but they make it easier
23:21:32 <calamari> I got the "basic techniques and utilities" book eventually.. had it on half.com for years
23:21:52 <calamari> (on the waiting list thing)
23:28:51 <itidus21> even c with allegro was fine for games on dos
