00:20:08 <itidus20> the problem with porting is that you don't do any design
00:22:33 <itidus20> the word design here is really terrible, but i mean it as, for instance, cat is a design
00:23:27 <itidus20> and then someone can be asked to port cat

01:12:30 <itidus20> ah.. the one guy created 9 pages about blizzard, and also created the category

03:05:32 <itidus20> edible and good is for the rich
03:05:42 <oerjan> http://www.reddit.com/r/Frugal/comments/u13qa/we_rfrugal_week_1_frugal_food/ was linked in the sidebar
03:07:28 <itidus20> "Some people value time over money, and others money over time" hmm thats one way of putting it, another way of putting it is that employed people have less time and more money, and vice versa
03:07:44 <oerjan> from there you can find http://www.reddit.com/r/budgetfood
03:08:02 <itidus20> except some people on welfare have a good life and some people on welfare do not
03:08:56 <itidus20> and, the reason for _that_ is that some people on welfare have parasites around them
03:09:07 <elliott> hi
03:09:08 <oerjan> elliott: although i wasn't originally thinking so much about r/frugal as about "help i only have $NN for the next 3 weeks how can i survive?"
03:09:18 <oerjan> (approximate title there)
03:10:34 <itidus20> in other words, valuing time over money is more of a function of circumstances than an exercize in free will
03:12:07 <itidus20> what i really mean is that, some poeple have more time than money, and others have more money than time

03:44:24 <tswett> elliott: your name is now Robert J! Lake. As such, you are no longer my baby nephew.
03:44:32 <elliott> ok
03:45:19 <tswett> Okay, so. This language in which all computation is carried out via rounding errors.
03:46:08 <tswett> I think a program should consists of a list of instructions that are looped through forever. The program will have access to an arbitrary but finite number of variables each capable of holding an arbitrary non-negative integer.
03:46:29 <tswett> Every variable is initialized to 1.
03:47:38 <tswett> There are three instructions: "add Y to X", "multiply X by 2^(Y/3) and round", and "divide X by 2^(Y/3) and round".
03:47:50 <tswett> That's the language.
03:49:25 <tswett> It might be Turing-complete. I have no idea how one would go about proving it either way.
03:50:03 <tswett> Also, the name of a variable must consist entirely of numerals, and the first of these cannot be 0.
03:53:21 <tswett> I guess we'll make that "round down", to avoid ambiguity.
03:56:23 <tswett> Here's a program, I guess: http://pastie.org/4005760
03:56:56 <tswett> After n > 0 iterations, 1 has the value 1, 2 has the value 3, 3 has the value 2^n, and 4 has the value 2^(n+1) - 1. I think.
03:59:08 <elliott> For the benefit of future generations:
03:59:08 <elliott> [[
03:59:09 <elliott> 2 >> 2
03:59:10 <elliott> 2 += 1
03:59:12 <elliott> 2 += 1
03:59:14 <elliott> 2 += 1
03:59:16 <elliott> 3 << 2
03:59:18 <elliott> 4 += 3
03:59:20 <elliott> ]]
04:10:14 <tswett> Okay, I don't think multiplication by 2^(1/3) is actually a useful operation.
04:10:37 <tswett> So, let's do the same, except these are the operations:
04:10:58 <tswett> "subtract Y from X", "calculate the number of groups of order X".

06:13:41 <elliott> yes
06:13:58 <shachaf> What's the way you're supposed to use "pool"?
06:14:17 <shachaf> I was thinking of do { runOne <- pool limit; parMapIO_ (runOne . foo) [1..n] }, but that still spawns n threads most of which do nothing at any point in time, which seems like it might not be strictly necessary.
06:14:27 <elliott> you realise kmc is in here right
06:14:38 <shachaf> Yes, but he's not responding.
06:14:43 <shachaf> (In the other channel, at least.)
06:14:44 <elliott> shachaf: anyway that sounds correct to me
06:15:03 <shachaf> But spawning a million threads is annoying when most of them are just waiting on the QSem.
06:15:08 <itidus20> full PL/1, with its growth characteristics of a dangerous tumor, could turn out to be a fatal disease.

18:47:26 <elliott> this just in: Sgeo__ "hates jokes; they're misleading"

18:48:39 <Sgeo__> The FAQ http://www.reddit.com/r/VXJunkies/comments/ewihz/
18:50:17 <ais523> hmm, time for an "am I crazy or not" question: reducing the number of bugs Splint finds in my code by finding false positives and patching Splint to detect them correctly
18:50:20 <Sgeo__> Sent two messages to people in that subreddit who may have thought it was real
18:50:59 <Sgeo__> ais523, would these be general use patches or would their general use result in false negatives?
18:51:22 <ais523> they're meant to be general use, although (obviously) might be buggy
18:51:44 <ais523> amazingly, I managed to get two false positives in the same line
18:52:04 <nortti_> yay. got staticaly linked sash to work.
18:53:16 <ais523> /* at file scope */ typedef /*@dependent@*/ int* dependentint_p; static dependent_int global_array_of_dependent_ints[10]; /*@dependent@*/ int *foo(void) {return global_array_of_dependent_ints[5];}
18:53:46 <ais523> the bugs were a) it was checking to see if the global was owned, rather than owned /or/ dependent; b) it was checking the annotation on the array itself, rather than the array's elements
18:54:09 <ais523> meanwhile, I have replaced a bunch of for loops with do-while loops because Splint is a little braindead with respect to loops

20:24:18 <ais523> so, the whole UEFI thing is causing a row again
20:24:56 <ais523> because although on x86 (and not ARM) the bootloaders are meant to be open to new user-specified keys, you have to muck around in the BIOS to enable them

20:33:51 <kmc> at least we can take comfort in the fact that computer security is terrible
20:34:03 <kmc> and so even in the future when it's necessary to root your own laptop, it will be possible to do so
20:34:45 <kmc> i mean this "secure boot" thing is pretty silly; are they really going to remove every feature and bug in the Linux kernel which allows root to execute code as ring0?
20:36:51 <pikhq_> ais523: Yes, it's just pretty damned shitty.
20:38:24 <pikhq_> It doesn't improve security notably, it just makes things fairly inconvenient.
20:38:58 <pikhq_> (if an attacker is at the point where they could mess with the bootloader, they already own your box.)
20:39:26 <kmc> yeah, that's the point...
20:39:38 <kmc> this is why you want the bootloader to be cryptographically signed, in theory
20:39:53 <pikhq_> Except they own the box *even without touching the bootloader*.
20:39:59 <kmc> signed against a private key which is stored in a TPM chip or such
20:40:04 <kmc> pikhq_: how so
20:40:09 <pikhq_> libc is suspect.
20:40:19 <kmc> presumably you have an encrypted disk
20:40:22 <kmc> if you care about this stuff
20:40:41 <pikhq_> Okay, true, then you're good if it's someone with physical access to your box.
20:40:45 <kmc> these discussions always devolve into "well, they *COULD* break out an ion deposition cannon and screw with the transistors on your CPU"
20:40:55 <nortti_> ELKS is pretty awesome. It also shows how much bloat new apps have. I got a out of memory error when trying to start vi because I tried to start it under ash that was running on top of sash instead of directly from sash
20:40:56 <kmc> missing the point that security is about relative threat and countermeasure costs
20:40:59 <kmc> and there are no absolutes
20:41:13 <pikhq_> If it's a remote attacker, yeah, your OS install is utterly suspect, even without the ability to mess with the bootloader.
20:41:20 <kmc> nortti_: nobody cares that vim uses 2 megs of ram instead of 1
20:41:22 <kmc> go back to 1985
20:42:01 <pikhq_> kmc: 'Scuse me, I'm offended that zlib has crc32 in 100k instead of 100 bytes.
20:42:16 <kmc> yes all this "bloated" software, so horrible that we're optimizing for the very expensive human time instead of very cheap computer resources

20:42:49 -!- boily has quit (Quit: WeeChat 0.3.7).
20:42:53 <nortti_> kmc: I meant vi. Vim wouldn't even start (64kB limit for .text)
20:43:05 <kmc> pikhq_: that sounds like actually shit code
20:43:19 <kmc> whereas the usual whining about "bloat" is about fine code which omg doesn't use every cycle to maximum efficiency!!!
20:43:31 <pikhq_> kmc: Yes. When I talk about "bloated code" I mostly refer to stuff that is *actually a large quantity of code*.
20:43:46 <pikhq_> Because 99% of the time the metric that matters is how much code there is for humans to deal with.
20:43:56 <kmc> ok, well that's not what nortti_ was talking about
20:44:09 <pikhq_> Though he'd probably have better luck with smaller human code size.

20:44:56 <pikhq_> nortti_: Which vi are you using?
20:45:35 <nortti_> pikhq_: you meant on ELKS? I am not completely sure
20:45:54 <pikhq_> (not that ELKS is anything but a curiosity at this point)
20:46:03 <ais523> oh well, I just submitted the story to Slashdot, mostly because I'm really interested in the resulting comments
20:46:04 <nortti_> on slitaz I use busybox vi
20:46:06 <kmc> i mean programming with restricted resources is a fun challenge
20:46:11 <kmc> and is sometimes required for embedded systems
20:46:44 <pikhq_> Though we're in a weird land where some embedded systems beat out 10 year old workstations.
20:47:15 <nortti_> ais523: that UEFI secure boit story?

23:31:13 <ais523> david_werecat: can't think of any way to beat counterpoke without losing a huge amount of ground to everything else?
23:31:42 <david_werecat> ais523: Indeed.
23:31:50 <ais523> so, I've come to the conclusion that the main difference between counterpoke and things like ffspg is that it sets the decoys much nearer the square it pokes
23:32:17 <ais523> which means that the opponent has to be leaving evidence of their motion for it to work well
23:32:28 -!- MDude has joined.
23:32:45 <david_werecat> Actually, I have a test version that doesn't leave a trail.
23:33:00 <david_werecat> It beats counterpoke, but only makes 3rd place.
23:33:17 <zzo38> I realized I do have C documentation in my computer, in Cygwin, so I will use that
23:33:31 <david_werecat> Counterpoke still does well, even without a trail, though.
23:33:32 <ais523> not leaving a trail leaves you vulnerable to regular rushes, unless you set large decoys
23:33:38 <zzo38> (It doesn't answer the gamma/contrast/brightness question, though)
23:33:44 <ais523> and indeed, the second half is optimized against trail-free programs
23:33:53 <ais523> on the basis that it wouldn't even be reached for trailing programs
23:36:22 <david_werecat> It's strange that counterpoke is so low on the list.

00:07:09 <ais523> I can generate the full anticipation easily enough but the hill won't accept it
00:07:41 <ais523> interestingly, it manages to get dreadnaught to run off the tape (!)
00:07:50 <ais523> at least on sieve polarity
00:07:54 <ais523> (on kettle it locks it in place instead)
00:08:36 <david_werecat> I think that's because of the way I put in the anti-triplock in the attack scheme.
00:08:48 <david_werecat> I still don't know how to do that properly...
00:10:01 <ais523> basically, [+[+]][+[+]]> is the sort of pattern you want if you want to be 100% immune to both triplocks and vibrations
00:10:24 <ais523> (although it won't beat anticipation, incidentally)
00:11:15 <ais523> a triplock requires three ] in a row, and there aren't there
00:11:33 <ais523> and a vibration relies on you not checking for two cycles in a row, and that does

00:16:01 <ais523> also, waterfall2

00:16:59 <ais523> the other results are expected (it beats programs that require the opponent to use decoys, and the things it's tuned to beat)
00:17:16 <ais523> so now, you're beating everything but anticipation and counterpoke
00:17:23 <ais523> I actually really really like anticipation
00:17:45 <david_werecat> It's a really good idea, just a little big.
00:17:47 <ais523> such a pity it doesn't compress well
00:17:59 <ais523> it's a very simple program really, just all the cases have to be written out by hand and there are thousands
00:20:00 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Lost terminal).
00:20:08 <david_werecat> If only the hill allowed something like bzip2 compression
00:20:21 <ais523> you can't run a program while it's bzipped :)
00:20:49 <david_werecat> Server side unpack?
00:21:19 <ais523> I think the issue's space used in memory while the program is running, rather than bandwidth
00:21:31 <ais523> hmm, the waterfalls beat dreadnought on one polarity
00:21:48 <ais523> I guess it's misdetecting on the other polarity, and the fallbacks don't work
00:22:27 <ais523> dreadnaught seems far from unbeatable, the more I look at it
00:22:48 <ais523> and, heh, on very long tapes there are draws, I'm guessing due to time out
00:24:29 <david_werecat> Dreadnought shouldn't be too hard to beat, it'll just take some time.
00:25:17 <ais523> counterpoke seems to beat it comprehensively, but I'm thinking more of tweaking existing strategies to beat it
00:25:35 * ais523 watches waterfall2 beat dreadnought on a long tape on kettle polarity
00:25:45 <ais523> then I guess I'll watch it lose on sieve, to see why
00:28:39 <david_werecat> It looks like waterfall2 waits for dreanought even when dreadnought has passed onto the next space
00:29:16 <ais523> 3 has fallbacks against that sort of thing
00:29:20 <ais523> but they probably won't work
00:29:28 <ais523> it falls back to triplocking in emergencies, and you have counter-triplock code
00:30:27 <david_werecat> It looks like the reason why dreadnought continues past is also due to the counter-triplock code
00:33:25 <david_werecat> Actually, it seems that dreadnought moves onto the [-] part of the clear routine on normal polarity and so it move on after 2 cycles instead of 3
00:33:43 <david_werecat> *moves*
00:34:13 <david_werecat> So really dreadnought wins by accident.
00:35:13 <ais523> this is quite common against waterfall, it's really complex /and/ really fragile
00:36:05 <ais523> getting it to the top of the hill required lots of constant-tweaking just to avoid coincidences where enemy programs got knocked onto a different part of their clear algo
00:36:36 <ais523> hmm, I wonder if an inline clear can be modified to take constant time?
00:37:02 <ais523> it'd be awesome if it could
00:37:28 <ais523> but it seems awkward, it has beautifully hard to time constructs like [>] in
00:40:36 <ais523> hmm, the duration depends on the distance it has to move and the amount it has to clear
00:40:56 <ais523> using an inefficient clear where we only change the value by 1 at a time until it's zeroed makes one of the values constant
00:42:03 <ais523> and I guess we could use a counter or something for the tape length, copying it back and forth between a cell and the next one

02:09:38 <ais523> yep, that's it

02:40:56 <ais523> better :)
02:41:32 <ais523> that makes it work a bit better against dreadnought and space_elevator
02:41:36 <ais523> and is a nicely generic fix, I hope
02:41:55 <myndzi> i think you guys are just throwing the symbols in a random number generator anymore
02:41:58 <myndzi> ;)
02:42:01 <quintopia> i need to get around to fixingspace elevator
02:42:15 <ais523> was space_elevator ever #1? I can't remember
02:42:17 <ais523> I guess so
02:42:24 <ais523> what would you be fixing it for? modern strategy?
02:42:39 <quintopia> it does a great decoy build butit clears too slow to win
02:42:51 <quintopia> somainnly fixing the rush part
02:43:08 <ais523> sometimes the simple clear loops are the best
02:43:15 <quintopia> yep
02:43:26 <ais523> elliott: you'll be glad to hear that skyscraper is probably the best moderately good program that sacrifices short tape lengths
02:43:38 <ais523> which was your strategy, IIRC
02:43:43 <ais523> err, first moderately good
02:43:55 <elliott> hehe
02:44:02 <elliott> it was indeed
02:44:05 <quintopia> how does it?
02:44:12 <ais523> it doesn't sacrifice them just to get a head start, though; it sacrifices them to give more space to build decoys
02:44:15 <quintopia> rule of12?
02:44:21 <ais523> yes, there's a rule of 12 in there
02:44:32 <ais523> although if it detects a short tape, it switches to omega_turtle
02:44:44 <ais523> so it's only sacrificing short tapes it can't detect, which is typically 3 or 4 lengths
02:45:07 <quintopia> what is omega turtle
02:45:08 <ais523> the rule of 12 is because if it hasn't lost already, the tape is probably quite long
02:45:15 <ais523> it's a turtle with a very large offset
02:45:53 <quintopia> i have a new program but it is almost certainly too long
02:46:53 <ais523> even if pastebinned?
02:47:03 <quintopia> i'd like to add something to bfj language to make complex strategies smaller and clearer
02:47:19 <quintopia> but it would probably obsoleteall currentstrategies
02:48:16 <myndzi> not if it doesn't change instruction size?
02:48:26 <myndzi> some kind of macro compiler could be useful
02:48:38 <myndzi> i'm not quite sure what kind of directives you would quantify these with though
02:48:45 <myndzi> but there are patterns so i'm sure it's possible
02:50:04 <david_werecat> Macros would be very useful.
02:50:44 <david_werecat> If the macros had submultipliers, it would be even better.
02:51:31 <elliott> david_werecat: problem is the macros have to be expanded server-side
02:51:36 <elliott> which doesn't work when you have very complex constructions
02:51:50 <elliott> the thing with the existing repetition facilities is that they can be interpreted efficiently, without expansion
02:51:58 <elliott> (egojoust expands them, which is why it's so slow)
02:52:09 <david_werecat> and memory consuming
02:54:52 * ais523 rages at sucralose_philip
02:54:57 <ais523> and the other programs based on it
02:55:29 <ais523> changing strategy after four decoys makes all my strategy detection kind-of useless
02:57:29 <david_werecat> Whoa, what's triplock3 doing that near to the bottom?
02:57:47 <ais523> david_werecat: triplock3 is a simplified but less accurate triplock2
02:57:52 <ais523> so it should be doing somewhat worse than triplock2
02:58:01 <ais523> also, everyone knows about triplocks nowadays
02:58:11 <ais523> although I don't think anyone else actually /uses/ them
02:58:41 <ais523> haha, I'd forgotten that waterfall3 actually /deleted its own decoys/ in order to stop sucralose_philip changing strategy :)
02:59:42 <david_werecat> That's an interesting way to beat it
03:00:06 <ais523> yep
03:00:13 <ais523> delete your decoys, change your flag, and it falls off the end :)
03:00:36 <david_werecat> How did that affect its performance against other programs though?
03:00:50 <ais523> not a lot, it only did it if it detected a turtle/philip
03:01:13 <ais523> waterfall3 is pretty much made of special cases
03:01:15 <myndzi> interesting, i just read the freaking novel you wrote on waterfall3
03:01:16 <myndzi> ;)
03:01:30 <ais523> I don't /quite/ think it's the case that every program sent it down a different codepath
03:01:34 <ais523> but it must have been quite close ;)
03:01:50 <ais523> and then I only wrote a couple of lines about slowpoke
03:01:57 <ais523> because waterfall3 really is that much more complex than slowpoke is
03:02:15 <myndzi> funny that it took so long for the ideas wrt: timing detection to show profit
03:02:35 <myndzi> but nice to see :)
03:02:43 <myndzi> to be honest i never thought programs that complex would succeed

03:04:17 <ion> Thankes.
03:04:18 <ais523> stop when you reach the wall of text
03:04:21 <myndzi> lmao.
03:04:29 <myndzi> on the topic of updating the language
03:04:37 <ais523> the first program ever doesn't do to well nowadays
03:04:39 <myndzi> there seems to be one thing that was enabled by the better interpreter
03:04:41 <ais523> *too
03:04:48 <myndzi> that is somewhat common
03:04:56 <myndzi> which is basically setting up nested loops to operate as conditionals
03:05:05 <myndzi> it's a waste of memory and they never get processed
03:05:07 <ais523> yes
03:05:09 <myndzi> they just get used as ifs
03:05:23 <myndzi> so i think it would be fair to add something like an if-not-zero
03:05:37 <myndzi> since theoretically you can accomplish the same by nesting a bunch of loops to ridiculous length
03:05:37 <myndzi> s
03:05:40 <ais523> in fact, I strongly considered an alternative BF Joust where doing that was banned in order to make defence more interesting
03:05:42 <myndzi> it would make programs simpler to read etc.
03:05:53 <elliott> I strongly oppose the idea of adding an if construct
03:06:04 <elliott> the underlying language is still pure BF in bf joust now and it should stay that way IMO
03:06:14 <myndzi> as i just pointed out
03:06:20 <myndzi> it's simply a convenience
03:06:25 <myndzi> much like the % and * loops
03:06:31 <myndzi> it doesn't alter the language any
03:06:38 <elliott> well, it's a lot heavier a layer than a simple repetition system
03:06:47 <myndzi> except to make possible "larger" programs
03:06:58 <myndzi> not really.. it basically IS a simple repetition system
03:07:03 <myndzi> "start a loop that i don't expect to end"
03:07:14 <ais523> well, "a ifnonzero(b) c" is a[bc]c but unfortunately, that doesn't abbreviate to anything, not even using %
03:07:16 <myndzi> "i am only gonna write the first character, you can just assume the last one is there"
03:07:38 <ais523> however, it's quite common for b never to return, in which case if and while are equivalent
03:07:55 <myndzi> i forgot about the failure case
03:07:56 <myndzi> lol
03:08:25 <myndzi> i dunno, it would be nice to make things more readable
03:08:50 <ais523> note that at least one program of mine, I was going to do that but it didn't fit into size limits, so I had to be more BFy
03:09:04 <ais523> also note: if you had arbitrary control structures, you'd never use the tape for computation ever
03:09:15 <ais523> (admittedly, generally you don't /anyway/, but waterfall3 does)
03:09:18 <myndzi> the size limits are merely practical, not theoretical ;p
03:09:37 <ais523> using the tape for computation is awkward because the opponent has a tendency of scribbling on it
03:09:43 <ais523> although you can safely do it /behind/ the opponent
03:10:26 <myndzi> what about this
03:10:30 <myndzi> i realize this is rather off the wall
03:10:36 <myndzi> 1) number lines
03:10:43 <myndzi> 2) provide a mechanism for "if not zero, goto"
03:10:46 <myndzi> 3) only goto forwards
03:11:14 <monqy> are we making a new game in the spirit of bfjoust
03:11:14 <monqy> ?
03:11:17 <myndzi> naw
03:11:26 <myndzi> i'm just talking about notation differences that might make it rather easier to read
03:11:35 <myndzi> the idea here is that things of the form
03:11:35 <itidus20> a joust with a new language
03:11:45 <itidus20> which has yet to become self aware
03:12:20 <myndzi> you know what i should just write explanations before i offer ideas
03:12:20 <myndzi> haha
03:12:40 <myndzi> [a][b][c] isn't what i was trying to address
03:12:49 <myndzi> but i guess actually
03:12:59 <myndzi> [a[b[c]]] can also be covered by that case
03:13:09 <myndzi> the need is for a time penalty of the appropriate amount of cycles
03:13:32 <myndzi> which i think is calculable
03:13:39 <myndzi> but i'm not sure this would really clean anything up much
03:13:39 <ais523> "time penalty" would be fatal to programming
03:13:45 <ais523> because it makes you vulnerable to triplocking
03:13:47 <myndzi> by 'time penalty' i mean ]]]]
03:13:55 <myndzi> doesn't get processed as if it was ]
03:14:23 <myndzi> but what am i even talking about, we don't indend to end/loop with this
03:14:29 <myndzi> i'm sick, i will just be quiet ;)
03:15:11 <itidus20> i have no relevance to bfjoust. but i can see that the nice thing about the bfjoust page on the esolang wiki is it's the sort of thing that could show up as a paperback at a flea market.
03:15:37 <elliott> what
03:16:38 <itidus20> its the sort of text someone could just pick up and read .. with an introductory chapter explaining what brainfuck is and what bfjoust is

03:20:54 <myndzi> hehe
03:21:04 <myndzi> it makes an interesting counterexample?
03:21:08 <ais523> it isn't tuned to beat attack strategies /at all/

03:27:54 <ais523> various other assorted programs too
03:28:11 <ais523> /doesn't/ beat vibration, because it needs a separate countervibrate and I didn't bother to add one, but doing that is simple enough
03:28:48 <ais523> (the base program for that is the standard (>)*8(>[-])*21, btw, it just has a much more complex clear loop)
03:29:07 <ais523> (which is a two-cycle offset clear, except against defence)
03:29:29 <ais523> and defence is detected via a 100% reliable mechanism
03:30:00 <ais523> (the opponent /must/ be changing their flag value during the clear in order for it to be detected)
03:30:19 <ais523> the different numbers on the offset clear are to beat anticipation
03:31:09 <myndzi> i don't know what anticipation does
03:31:19 <myndzi> i suppose it anticipates? ;p
03:31:33 <ais523> it sets its flag to nonzero the cycle /after/ the opponent zeroes it
03:31:38 <ais523> by measuring the opponent's timings
03:31:45 <myndzi> ha
03:31:52 <ais523> this puts it into its anti-vibration loop (because it would, wouldn't it?)
03:32:02 <ais523> then it uses a counter-anti-vibration lock
03:32:20 <myndzi> and then an anti-counter-vibrating-furry-leather-strapon lock-and-chain

04:34:20 * ais523 adds flexible timer clear to the wiki
04:35:12 <ais523> I think in future, the main use of defensive elements will be for things like skyscraper
04:35:28 <ais523> which feel like a defence program, but doesn't use any sort of lock (although it /does/ use a tripwire)
04:38:24 <elliott> so, BF Joust lives another day?

04:38:42 <ais523> it's not hopelessly broken, just shallower than I'd like
04:38:45 <elliott> ais523: IMO, death_to_defence is probably notable enough for a description even if it hasn't gotten to #1
04:38:58 <ais523> I put its main strategy on the wiki in the strategies section
04:39:04 <elliott> someone should tell G. that BF Joust is still being innovated on today :)
04:39:09 <ais523> well, the one that doesn't really matter
04:39:12 <ais523> elliott: you can if you like
04:39:17 <elliott> btw, your code block is broken
04:39:38 <ais523> that's intentional, if you mean the line of non-codeblock in it
04:39:49 <ais523> because it isn't code
04:40:06 <elliott> it's ugly
04:43:12 <ais523> well, it's a wiki, if there's a formatting you'd prefer that isn't misleading you can fix it
04:43:51 <elliott> im laze
04:45:40 <elliott> "Note that no defense programs are simple (the very nature of a defensive strategy makes this so)"
04:45:41 <elliott> who wrote this
04:45:43 <elliott> it's kind of stupid
04:46:01 <myndzi> not really
04:46:08 <myndzi> he doesn't mean the strategy is simple
04:46:08 <elliott> yes really
04:46:11 <myndzi> but the implementation
04:46:15 <myndzi> which is certainly true
04:46:17 <elliott> well all the defence concepts are as simple as attack concepts
04:46:28 <elliott> it's just that you need complex implementations to be effective in practice -- but the same applies to attack too
04:46:28 <myndzi> but he didn't say the strategy is simple
04:46:31 <myndzi> he said the *programs* are
04:46:38 <elliott> ok, it's the parenthical that's wrong then
04:46:42 <myndzi> no
04:46:48 <elliott> (but plenty of defence programs are simple, they're just bad too; same as attack)
04:46:56 <myndzi> the nature of a defensive *strategy* makes defense *programs* complex
04:47:02 <elliott> why
04:47:22 <myndzi> i don't think anyone would count shudder-class programs as "defensive" even though that's technically true
04:47:33 <elliott> I would
04:47:35 <myndzi> but it's possible to write effective attack programs much more simply than equally effective defense programs
04:47:37 <elliott> in fact, so does the article
04:47:42 <elliott> so
04:47:44 * myndzi shrugs
04:47:54 <myndzi> just saying, i took the meaning of the sentence and it makes sense to me :)
04:48:14 <elliott> i still disagree :P
04:48:23 <myndzi> you're welcome to!
04:51:01 <ais523> elliott: leave vff_experimental on the leaderboard, btw
04:51:11 <elliott> i was going to
04:51:19 <ais523> it beating dreadnought is just too hilarious
04:52:33 <ais523> if only by the smallest of margins that doesn't involve a draw
04:55:35 <david_werecat> So that anti-triplock is still causing suicides off the tape...
04:58:59 <ais523> working around triplocks can be awkward if you haven't had practice
05:00:36 <david_werecat> Yes, especially since I have 13 brackets in a row
05:01:12 <david_werecat> I've tried double bracketing the main clear loop, but it hurts the score.
05:01:44 <ais523> there's a lazy way, which is just to, just after the place in your code where a cell is cleared, put a > then copy your entire attack loop there
05:03:36 <david_werecat> That's what I tried. I'm still working out a better way to do that.

05:13:51 <myndzi> i dunno :)

05:14:25 <myndzi> oh sure
05:14:36 <myndzi> stuff that ignores or decoys the first nonzero
05:14:43 <myndzi> or just overwrites it without noticing maybe

05:14:59 <myndzi> or just a little luck ;)
05:15:31 <ais523> it'd have to be zeroing the cell in order to distinguish 1 from 128
05:15:51 <ais523> in order to avoid winning at that point, it'd have to unzero it again the next cycle

10:50:35 -!- olsner has joined.
10:54:00 <rszeno> is a zero sum game, Nash equilibrium?
10:54:56 <rszeno> i have no idea how to define the problem to be solved
10:55:23 <Taneb> I don't think it's a Nash equilibrium
10:57:00 <Taneb> But I'm far from an expert at Game Theory
10:57:27 <ais523> rszeno: a nash equilibrium is a set of strategies a game, where no single player can get better off by changing their strategy
10:57:32 <ais523> *strategies for a game
10:57:33 <rszeno> i don't know too
10:57:56 <ais523> as in, given that all the other players follow their plan, you should follow yours too
10:58:57 -!- elliott has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
10:59:02 <rszeno> yes but sometime is possible to exists a strategy to win all times, in same cases
11:01:30 <rszeno> i don't remember the name of the game, something with 0 and 1, three in a line or more. I remember the one who start first and follow a 'plan' always win
11:02:59 <ais523> if you have a strategy that always wins, that's a nash equilibrium for you, no matter what your opponent is planning, as you can't be any better off than winning
11:03:12 <ais523> and it's a nash equilibrium for them too, as they can't do any better than losing
11:03:20 <ais523> so you have a nash equilibrium altogether
11:13:22 <rszeno> maybe i'm wrong but some constraint imposed by bf joust rules like number of cycles 100000, set of input chars, and aditional the lenght of the program could make possible to generate, brute force, a huge number of possible programs( strategies in our case) and select or at least analize them
11:14:47 <rszeno> will too many combination?
11:15:38 <rszeno> i speculate in fact
11:16:20 <rszeno> when i see a interesting 'problem' i always look for a possible solution

14:47:34 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: I was about to download that but it's 4G
14:47:38 <ais523> I'll wait until later, I think
14:47:49 <ais523> when I can better figure out space management and have a more reliable connection
14:48:37 <Phantom_Hoover> It's so liberating to have a hard drive that I'm basically never going to have to grub for space on.
14:48:53 <Phantom_Hoover> I remember when I was stuck on the family laptop and there was like 2G of free space.
14:51:02 <fizzie> There are too many games in the Bundle. I did a bit of LIMBO yesterday, and the intro of Bastion today, but haven't gotten to Psychonauts at all.
14:52:05 <Phantom_Hoover> That floating-point bug happens like right at the start of actual gameplay.
14:52:16 <Phantom_Hoover> Bastion was good, if short.
14:52:27 <Phantom_Hoover> The shortness may come from my superfluous free time, though.
14:52:53 <fizzie> Based on the intro bit, I kinda-sorta suck at it, but that's what I do when it comes to anything at all actiony.
14:55:07 <Phantom_Hoover> I spent most of it alternating between mashing space and the mouse buttons with the machete and musket and running away and sniping with the machete's alt-fire thing.
14:58:48 <fizzie> I'm not sure what space does, I've been playing it with a pad.
15:00:57 <Phantom_Hoover> Evade.
15:01:47 <Phantom_Hoover> It does that dodge thing which results in some good old Zelda-style "roll across the map" action.

17:30:26 <Taneb> Hello
17:33:31 <Taneb> zzo38, some of these functions in Prelude.Generalize are too general to describe easily with my limited describing ability
17:38:40 <zzo38> Taneb: O, well, it could be described as a generalize version of something else, giving some examples of the generalizations
17:38:56 <Taneb> choice and count right now
17:41:22 <zzo38> Both of those names are based on Parsec but for any Alternative
17:41:48 <Taneb> This is the downside of never having used Parsec, heh
17:42:28 <zzo38> The type is too restrictive f should be Applicative rather than Alternative; I will fix that in next version.
17:42:34 <Taneb> There are a couple of very small changes I'd make, mostly using liftM instead of fmap in a couple of places to make the thingy smaller
17:42:44 <Taneb> Type restriction?
17:42:57 <zzo38> I mean the constraint
17:43:08 <Taneb> That's what I was talking about too
17:43:50 <Taneb> So, (<>>=) and (>>==) don't have the Functor requirement
17:44:25 <Taneb> Also, please put null next to unnull in the export list?
17:44:30 <zzo38> I just dislike that Functor is not a superclass of Monad
17:44:35 <zzo38> Taneb: OK, I will move that too
17:45:17 <Taneb> The Functor/Monad problem is a problem, but it's a problem
17:45:24 <Taneb> That made a lot more sense in my head
17:45:48 <Taneb> It's a problem that exists, and the problem being fixed won't break anything
17:46:09 <zzo38> I moved unnull/null in the export list and changed the constraint of count
17:48:21 <zzo38> I will upload the changes later today
17:51:33 <zzo38> But show me what you have so far?
17:53:01 <Taneb> I've just begun changing my style, because I'm indecisive and excessively terse
17:54:59 <Taneb> So hang on?

17:56:51 <david_werecat> Of dreadnought?
17:57:18 <david_werecat> I improved the anti-triplock code, which also made it much faster.
17:57:45 <quintopia> what is the anti triplock code?
17:57:49 <quintopia> timer clear?
17:58:01 <Phantom_Hoover> Hey david_werecat fix psychonauts for me
17:58:24 <quintopia> i coldnt download it Phantom_Hoover
17:58:37 <Phantom_Hoover> Did you use the torrent.
17:58:39 <quintopia> but i dont have enough ram to run it anyway
17:58:41 <Phantom_Hoover> You're meant to use the torrent.
17:58:56 <quintopia> the torrnent kept sayingpermissin denied from thewebseed
17:58:57 <Phantom_Hoover> It even tells you when you click the direct download link, use the torrent.
17:58:58 <david_werecat> The anti-triplock is a dual nested loop that leads into a copy of the clear routine.
17:59:08 <Taneb> zzo38, why is option called option, rather than, eg., snocA?
17:59:25 <quintopia> so yeah
17:59:35 <quintopia> couldnt download it by either method
17:59:38 <Phantom_Hoover> Also how do you not have the ram to run a 7-year-old games.
17:59:40 <Phantom_Hoover> *game
17:59:48 <quintopia> netbook
17:59:54 <quintopia> only got 1gig
18:00:30 <Phantom_Hoover> ...did computers normally have more ram than that in 2005?
18:00:37 <Phantom_Hoover> I honestly don't remember
18:00:49 <quintopia> the windows version onlyreqires 512mb
18:00:56 <quintopia> which is all that wasavailable then
18:01:13 <Phantom_Hoover> I see your netbook also has a very unreliable spacebar.
18:01:21 <quintopia> mac and linux require 2gig
18:01:31 <quintopia> yeah my phonne space bar is teh suck
18:01:36 <quintopia> it got wet
18:01:51 <quintopia> the keys near itdouble tap or dont tap sometimes too
18:04:32 <zzo38> Taneb: It is called option simply because that is its name in Parsec.

19:30:45 <Phantom_Hoover> Who can I assassinate?
19:30:45 <quintopia> if the transaction does not go through, i send the assassin after you
19:30:55 <fizzie> Buttbuttinate.
19:30:59 <Phantom_Hoover> So you're going to send an assassin after everyone?
19:31:11 <Phantom_Hoover> This is just like that one Neil Gaiman short story!
19:32:26 <quintopia> i would trust ais to complete the transaction

19:41:00 <Phantom_Hoover> Taneb, oh, fun fact: children born to members of hostile civs in your fort have a 50/50 chance of being on your side from some reason.
19:41:10 <Taneb> Heh
19:41:33 <Phantom_Hoover> I think this might be exploitable to use elf children as cannon fodder.
19:42:18 <Phantom_Hoover> They'll even fight with their parents and siblings.
19:42:36 <Phantom_Hoover> I only found this out because I was playing Fortress Defence and some of the added civs breed like crazy.
19:42:39 <Taneb> with meaning agaist here, I presume?
19:42:53 <Phantom_Hoover> Yes.
19:43:09 <Taneb> As opposed to alongside

20:02:27 <kmc> "The yesod team is trying to provide a PHP solution for web development, written in haskell."
20:02:30 <kmc> -ouch-
20:03:25 <Taneb> Could be worse
20:04:18 <Taneb> It could be the Microsoft Windows 8 team, writing in Visual J#
20:12:41 <kmc> processing data without loading it all into memory is still an open, controversial problem in Haskell :/
20:12:44 <kmc> http://www.reddit.com/r/haskell/comments/u8fe6/response_to_conduit_bugs/
20:14:10 <elliott> 21:02 <kmc> "The yesod team is trying to provide a PHP solution for web development, written in haskell."
20:14:13 <elliott> kmc: that guy is a troll
20:14:58 <elliott> he's shitting over that entire thread (ok, the thread is mostly shit to start with) with anti-yesod nonsense to the point that even the writer of the conduit bugs post says he's misinterpreting him
20:15:39 <elliott> I think he might have been the person who made that big stink about Yesod on Hacker News a while ago, too (it annoys me that I know this solely because it got on /r/haskell for some godforsaken reason)
20:17:02 <elliott> 21:12 <kmc> processing data without loading it all into memory is still an open, controversial problem in Haskell :/
20:17:07 <elliott> kmc: this is kind of unfair
20:17:20 <elliott> it's easy to do that, just use regular, strict handle IO, the same as you would in any other language
20:17:38 <elliott> (and anyway when you're dealing with something like a socket "loading it all into memory" isn't an option, because it's streaming, so that's not really the problem being solved)
20:18:07 <kmc> it's kind of unfair but kind of fair too
20:18:14 <elliott> i see
20:19:51 <kmc> interleaving strict handle IO with your logic is a lot more awkward in Haskell than other languages
20:20:17 <kmc> it pushes your code further from nice idiomatic Haskell
20:21:02 <kmc> so the enumeratoritataritaratee drama is relevant to the high level question of "can you do webdev / whatever nicely in idiomatic Haskell"
20:21:09 <zzo38> :kmc: What do you mean by that, exactly?
20:21:21 <zzo38> What does "interleaving strict handle IO with your logic" mean?
20:22:30 <elliott> kmc: Sure it's awkward, but it's still possible.
20:22:33 <kmc> it means every piece of code is an IO action and is like "do { computeFoo; x <- readMoreShit; computeBar x }"
20:22:42 <elliott> And it's, e.g. less awkward than C because of all the concerns you don't have to worry about.
20:22:46 <elliott> (But more awkward than Python or whatever.)
20:23:05 <kmc> "better than C for webdev"
20:23:06 <Phantom_Hoover> Taneb, finished that megabeast-infested world.
20:23:09 <kmc> what a high bar you've set elliott
20:23:11 <elliott> kmc: Yes!
20:23:13 <Phantom_Hoover> It's... a total shithole, it seems.
20:23:16 <Taneb> Phantom_Hoover, what's it like?
20:23:19 <elliott> Anyway, it's not as if processing streaming data is all *that* relevant to web dev.
20:23:23 <elliott> Especially if you don't need file uploads.
20:23:25 <kmc> yeah yeah
20:23:37 <kmc> i'm not trying to be the "Haskell is broken, CHECKMATE ATHEISTS" guy
20:23:40 <Phantom_Hoover> Well the most common cause of death seems to be werebeast.
20:23:42 <elliott> Anyway I don't really think the argument is very relevant, but that's mostly because I have a strong position on it :)
20:23:47 <kmc> but i think this is pretty important
20:23:52 <kmc> what's your strong position
20:23:55 <Taneb> Phantom_Hoover, sounds like inner-city Glasgow
20:24:13 <kmc> there are a lot of tasks which are much easier in Haskell than other languages
20:24:17 <kmc> but there are also some which are much harder
20:24:30 <Phantom_Hoover> In fact I get the impression that basically everyone's either dead from megabeasts, dead from werebeasts, or a werebeast.
20:24:30 <kmc> i gotta go eat lunch now though
20:24:31 <kmc> ttyl
20:24:48 <zzo38> kmc: Why does every piece of code need to be IO action? I find that doesn't need like that at all
20:25:07 <Taneb> "ttly"!?
20:25:14 <Taneb> ta-ta you later?
20:25:57 <Sgeo> Isn't there some library that's supposed to make Webdev in C++ nice?
20:26:01 <Sgeo> (Or is it C, I forget)

20:26:47 <Taneb> olsner, does that count as making it "nice"?
20:27:08 <zzo38> kmc: What is "interleaving strict handle IO"?
20:28:45 <elliott> 21:23 <kmc> what's your strong position
20:29:30 <elliott> I agree with Tekmo a lot more than Snoyman (although I think both of them approach the argument terribly making it essentially fruitless), but I also don't think Tekmo's solution is all that good :P
20:29:41 <elliott> Disagreeing with everyone is usually the best position.
20:30:02 <ion> I disagree.
20:30:04 <olsner> disagreeing with everyone must mean that you're the only one who's right
20:30:20 <elliott> Yes!
20:30:33 <monqy> can i disagree with everyone too
20:32:01 <Taneb> No, that'd be stupid
20:34:01 <olsner> monqy: yes, but unfortunately it seems you have to agree with either me or Taneb about whether or not you can disagree with everyone
20:34:19 <Taneb> olsner, no he doesn't
20:34:26 <Taneb> He could take a third option
20:35:05 <olsner> which third option?
20:35:25 <Taneb> "No, but it's not stupid"
20:37:56 <olsner> Breaking news from Sweden: "Boy and grandfather seriously injured"
20:38:37 <Taneb> No they weren't
20:38:43 <olsner> oh well, at least the cannibal drug has disappeared from reporting
20:40:20 <Taneb> No it hasn't
20:41:10 <olsner> Taneb: I am glad you agree
20:42:21 <Taneb> So am I
20:44:03 <zzo38> I have written the "dvi-processing" package which use IO and non-IO together and it doesn't need every piece of code to be an IO action like your example code above, and I don't think any program needs to be like that

10:34:45 <itidus20> nah

10:35:26 <fizzie> You can measure that by taking the Official Final Fantasy Examination. (Okay, not really.)

10:36:02 <itidus20> it depends how accurate my statement is
10:36:31 <itidus20> unfortunately from a certain point of view a human can only have an infinitessimally small knowledge of final fantasy
10:36:43 <itidus20> just like one cannot know everything about chess
10:36:43 <fizzie> Square-Enix should arrange some sort of a thing where you go to a room in their offices and take a monitored multiple-choice test.
10:37:46 <itidus20> for example, part of the knowledge would be the ability to sit in a room with no information other than whats in your head, and write a complete source code to every final fantasy game ever made
10:38:05 <itidus20> including all graphics and sounds
10:38:36 <itidus20> for all regions
10:39:20 <fizzie> There's an officially licensed energy drink called "Final Fantasy Potion" that was released as part of the marketing of FFXII.
10:39:44 <fizzie> It's "an herb-drink containing such ingredients as royal jelly, propolis extract, elderberry, chamomile, sage, thyme, hyssop, fennel, marjoram, rosemary, basil, Melissa, carbonated water, caffeine, and artificial coloring. The drink had a unique taste; it was very sweet, but at the same time possessed a bitter herbal aftertaste."
10:40:04 <itidus20> lol
10:40:14 <itidus20> wow
10:41:15 <itidus20> i know the same is true of every game though (as what I just said)
10:41:27 <fizzie> I see they've also made a FFVII themed version of Potion for that game's 10-year anniversary.
10:41:54 <itidus20> but like, a game such as Super Mario Bros.. it would actually be concievable that someone could memorize how to code a replica of that game with complete graphics
10:42:20 <itidus20> not completely perfectly though
10:42:39 <nortti> yeah. all the bugs wouldn't be there
10:42:41 <itidus20> unless it was a savant... then god only knows what is possible
10:43:47 <itidus20> (begins wandering off the topic path...)
10:44:44 <itidus20> well having said that I understand that with project MKULTRA they studied whether they could hypnotize people into memorizing documents after briefly viewing them, and recalling the contents
10:51:48 <fizzie> SMB1 rom is I think 256kbit, so about 79000 decimal digits when represented in that base; digits of pi have been memorized approximately that far. (Guinness record 67890 digits, some reports for 100000, and one guy claims 30 million digits, but obviously didn't list them all; they just asked for random sequences, so it might be a bit dubious.)
10:52:12 <itidus20> ohhh
10:52:22 <itidus20> hummmm
10:53:18 <fizzie> (Anyway, there might be large amounts of easier-to-remember material in there.)
10:54:19 <fizzie> Long time to type it all down, though.
10:55:15 <fizzie> It apparently took the Guinness record holder a bit over 24 hours to recite the 67890 digits.
10:57:25 <itidus20> this version of smb1 is 40,976 bytes
10:57:57 <itidus20> i don't know how they figure that :P
10:58:24 <fizzie> Well, that's a bit more than 256kbit, but maybe it's just the format. Anyway, same ballpark.
10:58:47 <itidus20> yeah.. i should look up a more authoritative source
11:01:45 <itidus20> ahh.. this website says it's a 320-kilobit cartridge

11:02:45 <itidus20> via google, rather
11:03:10 <fizzie> Hokay. Well, then. At least it's not orders of magnitude more. (I couldn't find the size very fast, so gave up.)
11:04:59 <itidus20> how does one go about calculating the number of decimal digits based on the number of kilobits?
11:05:16 <itidus20> maybe i should solve this myself
11:05:22 <itidus20> a bit of math work
11:05:55 <fizzie> Divide the bits by log_2(10).
11:06:09 <itidus20> oh. yeah i was about to say that..
11:07:47 <itidus20> apparently about 96000
11:09:19 <fizzie> 2^n = 2^(log_2(10)*n/log_2(10)) = (2^log_2(10))^(n/log_2(10)) = 10^(n/log_2(10)) to be explicit about it.
11:12:02 <itidus20> so math is useful for something other than torturing children after all
11:12:32 -!- MoALTz_ has joined.
11:13:00 <fizzie> The Gameboy Super Mario Land is apparently a 512-kilobit thing, that's kinda funny. It's got less levels and colors and all that.
11:13:29 <itidus20> i guess that's the tidus-fizzie number.. the number of decimal digits required to memorize a complete nintendo game
11:14:16 <itidus20> i suppose, that, it's probably been independantly discovered somewhere out there

11:17:14 <itidus20> the rom file seems to contain 327,808 bits
11:17:54 <itidus20> however that is the EU version
11:19:58 <fizzie> 327680 is what 320 kibibits is, the leftover 16 bytes coud be just headers.
11:20:28 <itidus20> ahh
11:22:39 <fizzie> According to IGN's list, Duck Hunt came on a 192 kilobit cartridge. That's less than 60k decimal digits, even the lame Guinness pi guy could do that.
11:22:53 <itidus20> donkey kong is 196736 bits ya
11:23:08 <itidus20> so donkey kong and duckhunt same
11:24:03 <itidus20> (24,592kb * 8) / 1024 = 192.125 kilobit cart
11:24:56 <fizzie> 24592kb? That's quite a lot.
11:25:46 <itidus20> phew.. ((24592 * 8)-128) / 1024 = 192

11:31:08 <itidus20> it is.. 8 megabits!
11:32:02 <fizzie> Inconceivable.

11:33:43 <itidus20> ahhh
11:34:16 <Taneb> Apparently it took so long to develope...
11:34:25 <Taneb> That when it was released, the SNES was out
11:35:27 <Taneb> Can anyone tell me if it is possible to run more than one application from a single terminal at once, and tab between them or something?
11:36:58 <fizzie> "Maximum manufactured ROM Size
11:36:58 <fizzie> The largest single NES game that I know of is Dragonquest 4 / Dragon Warrior 4. It has 1 megabyte of program ROM. Also, the Japanese game Metal Slader Glory has 512K of PRG and 512K of CHR ROM, making it also a full megabyte. Several pirate/unlicenced Famicom games are also pretty large.
11:37:04 <fizzie> Minimum manufactured ROM Size
11:37:06 <fizzie> Although the .NES fileformat deems 16K PRG ROM games as the minimum, there have been some 8K games manufactured, such as Galaxian. Later on, skilled programmers have learned to squeeze better code into even less memory, but nowadays most are probably dead.

14:16:26 <elliott> Taneb: this is pointless since you are not using the console

The CIA had also experimented on people, who unknowingly took LSD (among other things).
15:16:06 <nortti> estr?
15:16:41 <itidus20> Nixon and Haldemann ensured that the CIA's #1 and #2 ranking officials, Richard Helms and Vernon Walters, communicated to FBI Director L. Patrick Gray that the FBI should not follow the money trail from the burglars to the Committee to Re-elect the President, as it would uncover CIA informants in Mexico.

19:05:32 <zzo38> It also works if Zero actually represents the number zero, () represents one, -> for exponent, (,) for multiplication, Either for addition, then zero to the power of zero makes one and zero to the power of anything other than zero makes zero

20:01:19 <nortti> Taneb: "surviving" in a linux text mode is not hard at all. tell me when you haven't started X for 5 days
20:01:28 <Taneb> NEVER!
20:02:50 <nortti> it isn't that hard really. biggest change would be using links2 as your main web browser (that or compiling netsurf with it's dependecy hell)
20:03:04 -!- DHeadshot has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
20:03:18 <Taneb> For me, the biggest challenge would be figuring out how to use emacs/vi/nano/whatever
20:04:11 <nortti> if you can't figure out nano you don't deserve to say you can survive in textmode
20:04:56 <Taneb> Hmm
20:04:58 <Taneb> You're right
20:05:02 <Taneb> It's surprisingly easy
20:05:25 -!- oerjan has joined.
20:05:46 <nortti> it is as easy as using notepad but remeber to use nano -w (or whatever disables word wrap)
20:06:36 <nortti> but for future terminal use at least learn basics of vi, emacs or ed
20:06:49 <Taneb> Oh dear
20:07:13 <fizzie> WebKitDFB or Dillo on GTK on DirectFB. Though I guess that doesn't really count as "text mode" any more.
20:07:46 <fizzie> I'm a bit dubious on how well the banking websites would work on links2 or elinks or w3m or whatever.
20:07:56 <nortti> well directfb means you cannot use other terminals when that program is running
20:08:22 <fizzie> It'd be just for special occasions.
20:09:08 <nortti> fizzie: also netsurf has better rendering than dillo if I remember correctly. and website rendering in links2 is not really that bad
20:09:56 <nortti> it is just a hell to get to build even under X and buiding for framebuffer is even harder
20:12:07 <ais523> <nortti> if you can't figure out nano you don't deserve to say you can survive in textmode <-- nano is unfit for heavy editing, it doesn't obviously do automatic indentation
20:12:18 <ais523> not even just "copy the indentation of the previous line" like gedit
20:13:13 <nortti> ais523: I know. I should have said "if you can't *even* figure out nano you don't deserve to say you can survive in textmode"
20:13:16 <zzo38> When on Linux computer I use vi
20:13:49 <nortti> I never use nano myself. I use either ed or sometimes vi
20:15:57 <nortti> but if I would be forced to choose between emacs and nano I would choose nano

21:39:56 <EgoBot> ​Score for quintopia_zoom: 28.0
21:40:03 <quintopia> yes basically
21:40:15 <quintopia> but it only assumes the enemy has decoys on long tapes
21:40:36 <quintopia> and it uses a new clear i just invented
21:41:03 <quintopia> so even against fast rushes (like space_elevator on short tape) it brings down the flag first
21:42:00 <quintopia> still has some bugs tho
21:43:23 <david_werecat> The new clear looks like a fast clear merged with an offset clear repeated twice with different polarities.
21:45:34 <quintopia> look again
21:46:25 <quintopia> it does a small fast clear, then a big offset clear...but assumes the decoy/flag won't be certain heights
21:46:31 <quintopia> which is to say
21:46:47 <quintopia> it clears for a while, speed subtracts for a while, then clears some more, etc.
21:47:12 <quintopia> all the closing brackets are very susceptible to triplocks unfortunately, but i don't know how to deal with that
21:50:23 <david_werecat> If there's one place in the routine that would be a good point to break out of the clear loop, you can use null brackets {} to create copies of the clear routine inside the routine.
21:51:04 <david_werecat> That's how I dealt with it anyway.
21:52:18 <david_werecat> Although zoom seems sufficently complex to make that very difficult to do.

22:05:50 <ais523> quintopia: how does that program work?
22:06:16 <quintopia> ais523: read the conversation above. that pretty much covers it.
22:06:23 <ais523> oh, I see, it's a similar idea to counterpoke (the longer it takes to engage with the enemy, the more decoys it probably has)
22:06:45 <quintopia> yeah
22:07:15 <quintopia> the only other innovation is the assumption that decoys are certain sizes: very small or medium height or huge
22:07:32 <ais523> I think this is a legitimate addition to BF Joust technology that will start showing up in more programs (the counterpoke/zoom thing)
22:07:47 <quintopia> yes maybe
22:08:11 <ais523> wow counterpoke has fallen a lot
22:08:57 <quintopia> expect it to fall more
22:09:27 <ais523> because people are getting good at confusing it?
22:09:38 <quintopia> space_elevator already does a better decoy build (and always has). space_elevator's weakness is its clear (still)
22:10:17 <quintopia> expect skyscraper to rise i think. that strategy is hard to counter.
22:13:32 <ais523> it's very easy to counter, just clear with alternating polarities :)
22:13:40 <ais523> surprised nobody had thought of that
22:14:08 <quintopia> oh, yeah, i think i did that at one point a long time ago
22:14:28 <quintopia> space_elevator used to clear with alternating cycle lengths
22:14:44 <quintopia> the double clear is still in there
22:15:06 <quintopia> the problem with alternating polarity clear is that people frequently use alternating decoys
22:15:10 <quintopia> like dreadnought
22:15:34 <ais523> I don't use alternating decoys any more, they're too vulnerable to people detecting the pattern (even though nobody's done that yet; maybe I should)
22:15:37 <quintopia> so half the time you get the *worst* possible set of clears
22:16:04 <ais523> I'm rather partial to the "a block in one direction, a block in the other direction" pattern, which works neatly no matter what the opponent's clear pattern
22:16:14 <quintopia> in space_elevator i made sure i had an equal number of decoys in each direction, but not with a pattern
22:17:37 <quintopia> i wonder...

01:50:35 <BlueProtoman> Do algorithms with O(sin(x))?

01:52:32 <BlueProtoman> Or, even better, O(tan(n)) complexity.
01:52:41 <oerjan> that would mean it should use < 1 instructions on some input lengths.
01:53:54 <oerjan> you could probably contrive something not very useful
01:54:03 <BlueProtoman> There's still O(sin(n)).
01:54:29 <oerjan> yes, that gets arbitrary close to 0.
01:54:29 <pikhq_> That means it'll sometimes take negative time.
01:54:39 <oerjan> that too :P
01:54:58 <BlueProtoman> O(sin(abs(n))
01:55:04 <BlueProtoman> Now what?
01:55:09 <pikhq_> That... Doesn't change that at all, in fact.
01:55:11 <BlueProtoman> Oh, wait.
01:55:13 <pikhq_> As it's assumed n > 0.
01:55:19 <BlueProtoman> I mean O(abs(sin(n))
01:55:28 <oerjan> that still gets arbitrary close to 0.
01:55:56 <BlueProtoman> O(sin(n) + 2)
01:55:56 <oerjan> if you interpret it as + a constant, then it's the same as O(1).
01:56:27 <oerjan> and so you did

02:22:34 <pikhq_> Sure, I'm cheating somewhat by using zlib. But, then, gzip
02:22:44 <zzo38> I would probably make some of the programs in assembly language/machine codes, still GPL licensed, and have those programs in C as well if you are loading them onto a computer where the program has not yet been written in assembly language for that computer. Some such program might include true/false

23:00:18 <Sgeo> Hmm
23:00:24 <Sgeo> I want to see a blind LP of NetHack
23:04:32 <elliott> Sgeo: unspoiled people do not generally win NetHack in less than a few years :P
23:04:42 <elliott> so it would have to be an awfully long-running LP.
23:04:58 <shachaf> elliott: Did you ever win NetHack. :-(
23:05:03 <Sgeo> Has an unspoiled person ever won?
23:05:06 <elliott> shachaf: No.
23:05:11 <elliott> Sgeo: Yes.
23:05:14 <shachaf> It's a boring game.
23:05:17 <elliott> (At least, I'm 99% sure they have.)
23:05:20 <elliott> shachaf: Yes, it is.
23:05:41 <shachaf> "crawl > nethack" -- interhack developer
23:05:49 <shachaf> (Maybe.)
23:06:48 <elliott> Crawl has a boring early-game (OK, an incredibly boring early-game) and a fun mid-to-late-game.
23:07:01 <elliott> ais523 tells me NetHack is more like the opposite of that, so I probably won't play it much more.
23:07:08 <elliott> Except to ascend. I've got to ascend NetHack once before I die. It's a token thing.
23:07:21 <shachaf> elliott: I've never gotten to the Crawl mid-to-late game, so I wouldn't know.
23:07:24 <elliott> (I probably won't play it much more because its early game bores me, that is.)
23:07:27 <elliott> shachaf: How far have you gotten?
23:07:27 <shachaf> I ascended NetHack atheist wishless, though!
23:07:36 <shachaf> elliott: No idea. Not far.
23:07:46 <shachaf> I mostly played it when I was uninterested in thinking or being careful.
23:07:49 <elliott> shachaf: Have you seen the Lair?
23:07:52 <shachaf> Yes.
23:07:58 <elliott> shachaf: Have you gotten to the last level of Lair?
23:07:59 <shachaf> I got killed by a death yak once.
23:08:05 <shachaf> And a hydra a few times.
23:08:07 <shachaf> I don't know.
23:08:13 <shachaf> It was, like, a while ago, man.
23:08:13 <elliott> 00:08 <Sequell> No games for elliott (killer=death yak).
23:08:14 <elliott> :(
23:08:18 <elliott> shachaf: What about the Orcish Mines?
23:08:25 <shachaf> Sure, I've been there.
23:08:31 <shachaf> (Though maybe I shouldn't have gone in so early.)
23:08:41 <elliott> (You should do Lair first.)
23:08:48 <elliott> What about Shoals, Swamp, Snake Pit, Elven Halls? (Slime Pits?)
23:09:02 <shachaf> Swamp -- maybe?
23:09:06 <shachaf> Elven Halls -- probably?
23:09:17 <shachaf> Who knows, man!!!!!
23:09:20 <shachaf> "as they say"
23:09:26 <elliott> You've gone to Elf but haven't gotten a rune?
23:09:37 <shachaf> I think so?
23:09:40 <elliott> Anyway, I define Crawl mid-to-late game as "first rune onwards", more or less.
23:09:50 <elliott> Then after the late game is extended. (I've never done extended. :( )
23:09:54 <shachaf> Well, you should ascend NetHack.
23:10:05 <shachaf> Play Wiz or Val/Sam.
23:10:16 <shachaf> Val/Sam has an easy early game, so you could play that.
23:10:16 <elliott> shachaf: The furthest I've gotten in NetHack is doing Sokoban in the Mines as a Valkyrie dwarf.
23:10:23 <shachaf> ("Val/Sam" is like "C/C++".)
23:10:36 -!- nortti_ has quit (Quit: leaving).
23:10:37 <elliott> It was very boring, except for the part where I angered the Keystone Kops.
23:11:00 <elliott> #nethack got me out of that situation by having me steal something and then repay the shopkeeper, which calmed the Kops down.
23:11:03 <shachaf> elliott: If you kill the shopkeeper, the Kops never come.
23:11:05 <elliott> Did you know NetHack doesn't make much sense?
23:11:32 <elliott> Anyway,
23:11:36 <elliott> I don't really like NetHack.
23:11:38 <elliott> s/, $//
23:11:40 <elliott> Erm.
23:11:41 <elliott> s/, $/,/
23:11:50 <shachaf> elliott: You should play it to the end!
23:11:51 <elliott> s/Anyway$/Anyway,/
23:12:02 <shachaf> In the late game in NetHack you become invincible.
23:12:05 <elliott> shachaf: Even ais523 said NetHack probably isn't the game for me.
23:12:08 <shachaf> And you can kill anything by hitting it.
23:12:12 <elliott> And yes, that's boring as hell.
23:12:20 <shachaf> It's not!
23:12:22 <shachaf> Not the first time.
23:12:32 <elliott> I would play NetHack if they made an analogue of Crawl's sprint mode where it's just the Astral Plane.
23:12:36 <elliott> (Or maybe all of the planes.)
23:12:42 <shachaf> The planes are boring.
23:12:47 <shachaf> Well, maybe not the Astral Plane.
23:12:52 <shachaf> The Plane of Water is really boring.
23:12:53 <elliott> The Astral Plane isn't! Or at least it doesn't look boring.
23:12:56 <elliott> I've never played it, naturally.
23:13:03 <shachaf> You gotta ascend NetHack at least once before you die, man!
23:13:07 <elliott> ais523 thinks the Astral Plane is the best level, I think.
23:13:18 <shachaf> The Astral Plane is pretty good.
23:13:24 <shachaf> You would probably use the Astral Call Bug.
23:13:31 <shachaf> CHEATER
23:13:31 <elliott> I would not.
23:13:48 <elliott> It's fixed on the public servers, so I hear, anyway.
23:13:53 <elliott> And offline play isn't cool.
23:14:02 <elliott> shachaf: I bet you play with terminals bigger than 80x24.
23:14:03 <shachaf> Guess what OTHER patch is applied to public servers?
23:14:03 <elliott> Cheater.
23:14:07 <elliott> Yes, yours.
23:14:16 <elliott> Sorry - I mean - not yours.
23:14:20 <elliott> The one you CO-wrote!
23:14:31 <shachaf> Hey, I wrote the actual code in it!
23:14:39 <elliott> Can you prove it?
23:14:51 <shachaf> You can ask the other person whose name is on the patch?
23:14:59 <shachaf> Not that you'd believe him.
23:15:09 <shachaf> elliott: I bet you're cheater_.
23:15:17 <elliott> shachaf: Would *you* trust the guy who made YAML?
23:15:39 <elliott> I am. :(
23:15:46 <elliott> I notice you haven't responded to the hugeterm allegation.
23:15:57 <shachaf> I play on 80x24, thank you very much.
23:16:04 <shachaf> I don't even get the point of hugeterm.
23:16:05 <Sgeo> Hey, I wrote a patch for NetHack
23:16:09 <shachaf> Do you get to see more of the map in Crawl?
23:16:26 <elliott> shachaf: Yes, or a bigger message area.
23:16:32 <shachaf> In NetHack you see the entire map on the screen anyway.
23:16:33 -!- monqy has joined.
23:16:36 <shachaf> And there's no message area.
23:16:37 <elliott> shachaf: But you can also just make the message area smaller to see all of the map.

23:20:33 <elliott> Oh.

23:20:39 <shachaf> elliott: Do you claim there isn't a dispute?
23:20:44 <shachaf> That sounds like a dispute for monqy to settle.
23:20:44 <elliott> monqy: Who wrote this patch? http://ben-kiki.org/oren/statuscolors/index.html
23:20:50 <shachaf> elliott: Oh, I meant hugeterm.
23:21:18 <elliott> What dispute?
23:21:21 <elliott> We both agreed it's stupid.
23:21:28 <shachaf> Oh.
23:21:34 <shachaf> monqy: Is hugeterm stupid?
23:21:48 <shachaf> monqy: Also, should elliott ascend at NetHack at least once before he dies.
23:21:52 <shachaf> :'(
23:21:56 <shachaf> "as they say"
23:22:51 <monqy> hugeterm is stupid
23:23:00 <monqy> I don't care whether elliott ascends nh or not
23:23:18 <shachaf> Should I ascend Crawl?
23:23:26 <elliott> Yes.

23:24:29 <elliott> I know of it! I forget what it is.

23:24:54 <shachaf> (You ascend up the figurative demigodhood stairs.)
23:25:15 <elliott> shachaf: Did you know that Debian applies a patch to NetHack that changes the gameplay?
23:25:21 <elliott> That upsets me.
23:25:24 <shachaf> Sounds reasonable.
23:25:26 <shachaf> Which one?
23:25:29 <elliott> The 95_enh_engulf_prayers.dpatch patch makes being engulfed a major trouble, so that a successful prayer while engulfed will get you expelled and cause the engulfing monster to flee.

01:11:52 <shachaf> The Astral Plane: MAXIMUM FUN
01:11:54 <elliott> You could use an interface that has multiple lines of messages.
01:12:15 <monqy> is the astral plane actually fun
01:12:22 <elliott> shachaf: Is the Astral Plane actually fun?
01:12:31 <elliott> monqy: It *looks* fun, and ais523 says it's the best level of NetHack.
01:12:33 <elliott> So surely it must be fun.
01:12:41 <shachaf> elliott: Well, I've died there.
01:12:51 <shachaf> Which means there's risk! Which makes it fun.
01:12:57 <monqy> i don't trust ais' roguelike opinions; he likes identification
01:13:08 <elliott> monqy: Well, he clarified that a bit.
01:13:19 <elliott> (He hates Crawl's identification system.)
01:13:27 <elliott> (NetHack's identification system is admittedly much less degenerate.)
01:13:28 <monqy> but he likes nethack's, no?
01:13:29 <shachaf> VELOX NEB
01:13:38 <elliott> (I still don't like it. But it's much better than Crawl's.)
01:13:46 <elliott> (FWIW, IIRC dtsund thinks the same.)
01:13:58 <shachaf> elliott: Did you know: If you #name-no a scroll labeled "VELOX NEB" "VELOX NEB", you have a 100% chance of writing it with a magic marker?
01:14:05 <shachaf> I mean, writing the thing it identifies to, if you try.
01:14:11 <shachaf> Even if you don't identify it.
01:14:14 <elliott> shachaf: What.
01:14:27 <shachaf> It's a bug.
01:14:32 <shachaf> Ask ais523 -- Interhack supports it, after all.
01:14:36 <elliott> shachaf: I didn't understand what you said.
01:14:43 <elliott> Also, ais523 never developed Interhack AFAIK.
01:14:46 <shachaf> Oh.
01:14:49 <shachaf> elliott: You know about #name-no?
01:14:52 <elliott> No.
01:14:53 <elliott> What's that?
01:15:00 <shachaf> You know about #name?
01:15:07 <elliott> Yes. It names objects and stuff.
01:15:27 <shachaf> Right. If you say "no", it names a type of object, instead of a specific one.
01:15:36 <shachaf> So you can name "VELOX NEB" "maybe scare monster??"
01:15:43 <elliott> Right.
01:15:44 <shachaf> Like { or \ or whatever it is in Crawl.
01:15:49 <monqy> what
01:15:55 <elliott> I... think you mean inscription.
01:15:56 <monqy> crawl doesn't have naming a type of object
01:16:01 <elliott> Which is neither { nor \.
01:16:03 <shachaf> Oh.
01:16:09 <shachaf> Anyway, Crawl isn't the point here.
01:16:10 <monqy> { is inscription but
01:16:14 <elliott> Oh, is it?
01:16:17 <elliott> I just use i<letter>i.
01:16:20 <elliott> Because I'm a ``n00b''.
01:16:24 <monqy> inscription doesn't apply to a whole type of item
01:16:28 <elliott> Right.
01:16:34 * shachaf , knower of more Crawl keybindings than elliott
01:16:55 <shachaf> So if you #name-no a scroll labeled "VELOX NEB" "VELOX NEB", you'd think it wouldn't do anything useful, right?
01:17:02 <elliott> shachaf: Anyway, how do I get past the point where I suicide before finding the entrance to the Mines or Sokoban because I'm bored as hell?
01:17:08 <elliott> And right.
01:17:14 <elliott> (Go on before answering that.)
01:17:18 <shachaf> elliott: You could do the mines first.
01:17:25 <shachaf> elliott: So let's say VELOX NEB is a scroll of wishing.
01:17:43 <shachaf> Now, if you attempt to write "a scroll of wishing" with a magic marker, you'll always succeed!
01:17:56 <shachaf> Because it thinks you "know" wishing, because you #named-no a scroll of wishing earlier!
01:18:04 <shachaf> In short: nethack=stupid
01:18:13 <elliott> That's dumb architecture.
01:18:22 <elliott> Anyway, how the hell can I do Mines before finding the entrance to Mines?
01:18:32 <shachaf> The mines are always on level 2/3/4.

01:26:03 <shachaf> (By your continent I mean Asia.)
01:26:08 <monqy> shachaf: lag matters even in turn-based games.
01:26:13 <elliott> Asia is indeed my continent.
01:26:18 <Sgeo> Eurasia
01:26:24 <shachaf> Eur continent.
01:26:32 <elliott> shachaf: Anyway, OK, I'll try NAO.
01:26:38 <Sgeo> Why are Europe and Asia considered different continents?
01:26:40 <elliott> shachaf: What char should I play?
01:26:49 <shachaf> Sgeo: Europe isn't a continent. It's just a peninsula.
01:26:51 <elliott> Sgeo: Because "continent" doesn't mean anything.
01:26:57 <shachaf> elliott: That depends. You want it to be easy, right?
01:27:01 <elliott> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasia#Overview
01:27:07 <elliott> shachaf: Not necessarily.
01:27:11 <elliott> shachaf: I want to have fun, preferably early on.
01:27:18 <elliott> But I'd also like something not impossible to ascend for a beginner.
01:27:25 <shachaf> elliott: Anyway, play either Val/Sam for a meleer or Wiz for a magic user.
01:27:26 <shachaf> I guess.
01:27:32 <elliott> i.e. I want to play with the intention of winning, but not be bored out of my skull.
01:27:36 <coppro> elliott: 'twas my first roguelike
01:27:37 <elliott> shachaf: I played Val. It was boring.
01:27:41 <coppro> elliott: it's still bloody hard
01:27:43 <shachaf> They're all boring.
01:27:49 <shachaf> In the beginning.
01:27:51 <elliott> shachaf: That's not helpful. :(
01:27:58 <elliott> When do they get non-boring?
01:27:59 <elliott> Midgame?
01:28:04 <shachaf> More or less.
01:28:12 <elliott> shachaf: I might play a wizard.
01:28:17 <shachaf> Wizards can be chaotic!
01:28:17 <elliott> shachaf: But I've never cast a single spell in NetHack.
01:28:19 <shachaf> Which is good.
01:28:21 <elliott> How squishy are wizards?
01:28:24 <Sgeo> Today I Learned that "antiquity" is an actual historical period and not just a vague reference to the past
01:28:25 <elliott> Early on, I mean.
01:28:36 <shachaf> elliott: In the late game wizards can get by pretty well with melee.
01:28:42 <elliott> Early game.
01:28:45 <shachaf> Oh.
01:28:48 <shachaf> Well, they're not *that* bad.
01:28:56 <quintopia> Sgeo: reference?
01:28:58 <elliott> OK, fine.
01:28:58 <shachaf> They become significantly better if you sacrifice for Magicbane?
01:29:03 <shachaf> Which is easy.
01:29:05 <elliott> shachaf: Can NAO be accessed via ssh?
01:29:09 <shachaf> Nope.
01:29:22 <Sgeo> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasia#Overview linked to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_antiquity
01:29:47 <elliott> shachaf: How do I access NAO?
01:30:05 <shachaf> telnet nethack.alt.org
01:30:07 <shachaf> l
01:30:09 <shachaf> shachaf
01:30:17 <shachaf> p
01:30:18 <shachaf> n
01:30:18 <shachaf> w
01:30:18 <shachaf> e
01:30:19 <shachaf> m
01:30:27 <shachaf> That's how I do it.
01:30:39 <elliott> Aww, there is already an "elliott".
01:30:45 <monqy> is it you
01:30:53 <elliott> No. Well, he doesn't have my password.
01:30:56 <shachaf> elliott: Wait, haven't I seen you play NetHack before?
01:30:56 <elliott> And he's on the high scores list.
01:31:01 <monqy> see I tried logging on as squarelos and there wasn't a squarelos but then I tried monqy and it worked
01:31:02 <elliott> shachaf: ...Possibly?
01:31:09 <Sgeo> Pretty sure elliott's played before
01:31:10 <shachaf> Maybe it was on termcast or something.
01:31:12 <elliott> monqy: Oh, are you playing too?
01:31:13 <elliott> Is it a party?
01:31:14 <elliott> Sgeo: I have.
01:31:17 <monqy> elliott: no
01:31:17 <Sgeo> People were helping elliott play
01:31:21 <elliott> shachaf: By the way, can I skip Sokoban?
01:31:22 <monqy> elliott: i'm just here to send you mail
01:31:23 <Sgeo> He angered a shopkeeper I think
01:31:27 <shachaf> http://alt.org/nethack/plr.php?player=ehird
01:31:30 <elliott> Sgeo: No, I angered the Kops.
01:31:30 <shachaf> elliott: Yep.
01:31:35 <elliott> Angering a shopkeeper was part of the escape plan.
01:31:38 <shachaf> elliott: There's a bag of holding in Sokoban, though.
01:31:40 <elliott> shachaf: How painful would that be?
01:31:41 <elliott> And yes, I know.
01:31:42 <Sgeo> elliott, uh
01:31:43 <elliott> (Not always!)
01:31:47 <elliott> (Sometimes it's something else.)
01:31:48 <elliott> (I think.)
01:31:52 <shachaf> Amulet of reflection.
01:31:54 <monqy> "reflection i think yes
01:31:55 <shachaf> But the bag of holding is better.
01:32:05 <elliott> Sgeo: If you steal from a shopkeeper then pay it back, the Kops will forgive you.
01:32:10 <elliott> Because they think they got angry because you stole, see?
01:32:19 <shachaf> Because you're a wizard, and on your first wish you're going to get a blessed greased fixed +n silver dragon scale mail!
01:32:21 <elliott> So since they get angry when you steal, repaying a debt always calms the Kops down.
01:32:25 <Sgeo> How did the Kops get summoned without angering shopkeeper?
01:32:30 <elliott> I tried to kill one.
01:32:36 <elliott> (Summoned? They're always present.)
01:32:44 <shachaf> elliott: Oh, you can sometimes just pay a shopkeeper off to unanger them.
01:32:49 <shachaf> Whether or not you stole something.
01:32:49 <elliott> Right.
01:32:52 <elliott> Ah.
01:32:58 <Sgeo> elliott, they get summoned when you steal
01:33:07 <Sgeo> elliott, oh, are there loose roaming cops in Minetown?
01:33:07 <elliott> Sgeo: They were wandering about before I stole.
01:33:10 <elliott> Yes.
01:33:11 <elliott> shachaf: Can I just use the default options file?
01:33:17 <elliott> shachaf: Does it have reasonable autopickup settings?
01:33:18 <shachaf> elliott: You want to enable OPTIONS=hpmon
01:33:26 <elliott> Why? Because statuscolors sucks?
01:33:32 <shachaf> Exactly!
01:33:37 <elliott> OK, but seriously.
01:33:44 <shachaf> (I actually meant to say statuscolors. But either works.)
01:33:44 <elliott> Oh, wait, I have to use the options file if I want to name my pet, don't I?

01:34:13 <shachaf> Hooray!
01:34:23 <elliott> shachaf: Do you turn off DECgraphics, too?
01:34:23 <shachaf> elliott: You should steal Eidolos's config file.
01:34:26 <shachaf> That's what I did.

01:34:38 <elliott> See, I *like* DECgraphics. But it looks weird in my terminal.
01:34:42 <elliott> Because the vertical bars don't meet.
01:35:01 <monqy> maybe your terminal and/or font is bad
01:35:03 <elliott> shachaf: Does the default configuration file have menucolors?
01:35:05 <elliott> monqy: It is.
01:35:11 <shachaf> elliott: I don't think so?
01:35:16 <elliott> shachaf: *sigh*
01:35:18 <shachaf> menucolors needs to have regexps explicitly enabled.
01:35:20 <shachaf> Just take mine!
01:35:26 <elliott> shachaf: I mean "default" as in "NAO default".
01:35:32 <shachaf> I don't think NAO has a default?
01:35:38 <shachaf> Vanilla NetHack has no menucolors.

01:39:01 <elliott> shachaf: Sure.
01:39:13 <elliott> shachaf: Did you know I don't like Elbereth?
01:39:29 <elliott> But I can't not use it, because it'd be purposefully hurting my play.
01:39:39 <shachaf> elliott: People have ascended Elberethless.
01:39:39 <elliott> monqy: Can you make a monqy NetHack conduct that involves no Elbereth?
01:39:42 <elliott> It'd be like not casting meph.
01:39:46 <elliott> shachaf: Well, no shit.
01:39:51 <monqy> elliott: just like how in crawl you do labyrithss and cast meph
01:39:54 <shachaf> elliott: That goes under the conduct of "illiterate".
01:39:55 <elliott> Elberethless is probably the least impressive conduct anyone has ever ascended with.
01:39:58 <shachaf> Also scrolls and spellbooks.
01:40:00 <elliott> monqy: Yes.
01:40:00 <shachaf> And T-shirts!
01:40:19 <shachaf> elliott: How about: VEGETARIAN
01:40:24 <shachaf> That conduct is less impressive.

01:41:42 <shachaf> And a few other exceptions like magic lamps, I guess?
01:41:45 <elliott> Doesn't that get tedious?
01:41:56 <shachaf> There's a lot of junk lying around, "d00d".
01:42:40 <monqy> i remember when i played nethack i didn't like autopickup because my autopickup autopicked up corpses while i was fighting
01:42:47 <elliott> Can you edit your NAO rc online?
01:42:48 <monqy> i didn't like that
01:42:51 <elliott> This vi-style editor is annoying.
01:43:13 <monqy> i also remember not knowing about elbereth or anything like that
01:43:17 <shachaf> elliott: Yes, you can.
01:43:22 <monqy> or how to start the quest
01:43:24 <shachaf> alt.org/nethack/EDITMYNETHACKRCORSOMETHING
01:43:36 <elliott> I don't know how to start the quest. But I know Elbereth.

01:43:41 <monqy> or how to identify items!
01:43:45 <shachaf> monqy: Autopickingup all % is probably a bad idea.
01:43:49 <shachaf> elliott: You can in Interhack!
01:43:56 <elliott> shachaf: Wow, there's an online editor that uses HTML forms.
01:44:01 <elliott> Rather than a direct editor.
01:44:01 <monqy> better play interhack
01:44:03 <elliott> This is too fancy. Too fancy.
01:44:04 <shachaf> elliott: Yes, but don't use that.
01:44:08 <elliott> Okay/
01:44:10 <elliott> *Okay.

01:44:31 <elliott> shachaf: Did you know there's a NetHack bug where doors sometimes don't open in one try?
01:44:47 <elliott> And yes, it does. But I'm not going to use it.
01:44:54 <shachaf> elliott: Did you ever hear the story of the time I died in NetHack because of not speaking English well?
01:45:00 <elliott> Go on.
01:45:04 <shachaf> elliott: Also, if you're a wizard: Elbereth becomes *way* better once you get Magicbane.
01:45:14 <shachaf> elliott: Well, I noticed that "the door resists!" meant that it was stuck.
01:45:20 <shachaf> So I zapped a wand at a shopkeeper.
01:45:27 <shachaf> And it said "the shopkeeper resists!"
01:45:35 <shachaf> So I thought the shopkeeper was stuck and walked over to hit him.
01:45:36 <elliott> :D

01:46:33 <shachaf> But I was at the door; I could've escaped.
01:46:39 <elliott> monqy: Is calling it squarelos better than calling it monqy?
01:46:40 <shachaf> `quote squarelos
01:46:49 <HackEgo> No output.

01:47:35 <elliott> Should I turn on showbuc?

01:48:00 <shachaf> elliott: showborn doesn't really matter?
01:48:03 <shachaf> I think.
01:48:06 <shachaf> And showbuc is good.

01:49:43 <monqy> hallu

01:49:47 <monqy> brogue has hallu
01:49:57 <monqy> idk hallu is cute but annoying
01:50:19 <elliott> NetHack calls MP "Pw"?
01:50:25 <monqy> for power
01:50:46 <monqy> haven't you played nethack before ?
01:50:54 <elliott> monqy: Not as a spellcaster.
01:50:57 <elliott> shachaf: Should I colour Pw?
01:50:59 <shachaf> The funny part is that it calls it "energy" elsewhere.
01:51:02 <shachaf> elliott: If you want to?
01:51:06 <shachaf> It's not as important as HP.
01:51:17 <shachaf> elliott: Force Bolt costs 5 Pw.
01:51:23 <elliott> shachaf: Well, in Crawl, MP is coloured and all.
01:51:30 <elliott> Because having low MP is bad. (If you're no good at melee.)
01:51:31 <shachaf> elliott: Also, read [[nethackwiki::wizard]]
01:51:34 <monqy> other things i did in nethack: I didn't rest up hp or pw because ugh resting, especially resting in nethack
01:51:35 <elliott> (Also if you're good at melee sometimes!)
01:51:43 <shachaf> It's probably good. I haven't read it but why wouldn't it be?
01:51:49 <elliott> shachaf: No. I'm relying on your advice.
01:52:06 <shachaf> elliott: Some people say wizards shouldn't do spellcasting until after the quest.
01:52:14 <monqy> other things i did in nethack: play healer and stone to flesh every boulder then choke to death
01:52:18 <monqy> yum yum
01:52:20 <shachaf> The wizard quest is the point where spellcasting becomes really good.
01:52:24 <shachaf> monqy: I did that too
01:52:25 <shachaf> !
01:52:27 <shachaf> !
01:52:30 <elliott> shachaf: But the reason I want to do spellcasting is because melee earlygame is really boring.
01:52:38 <shachaf> elliott: OK.
01:52:43 <monqy> other things i did in nethack: feed half-eaten lichen corpse to pony, make friend
01:52:47 <elliott> Anyway, does leaving showborn off cause any irretrievable information loss?
01:52:53 <elliott> I really hate irretrievable information loss.
01:52:56 <elliott> (i.e. is the info tracked anywhere else)
01:53:03 <elliott> monqy: :')
01:53:08 <shachaf> elliott: I think showborn only affects post-death information?
01:53:11 <elliott> In Sokoban I had about six to seven kittens.
01:53:18 <elliott> Most people try and dispose of pets in Sokoban.
01:53:20 <elliott> I accrued more.
01:53:23 <elliott> shachaf: Right.
01:53:30 <elliott> shachaf: But is the information on what monsters you killed tracked elsewhere?
01:53:35 <shachaf> elliott: Anyway, wizards + throwing daggers = mix
01:53:47 <shachaf> And wizards + wielding Magicbane (= athame = dagger) = mix
01:53:55 <elliott> ## Always pick these:
01:53:55 <elliott> AUTOPICKUP_EXCEPTION="<*magic lamp*"
01:53:55 <elliott> AUTOPICKUP_EXCEPTION="<*wand of wishing*"
01:53:56 <elliott> AUTOPICKUP_EXCEPTION="<*wand of death*"
01:53:58 <elliott> AUTOPICKUP_EXCEPTION="<*wand of polymorph*"
01:54:00 <elliott> I guess I'll uncomment these.
01:54:03 <shachaf> elliott: The monsters you *killed*? Yes.
01:54:05 <elliott> (Actually I did before I pasted that. That's why they don't have #.)
01:54:06 <shachaf> I think?
01:54:08 <shachaf> Maybe not.
01:54:23 <shachaf> WHO KNOWS, MAN
01:54:23 <monqy> guess who forgot about polypiling
01:54:31 <monqy> guess who didn't know about polypiling when he played nethack
01:54:39 <shachaf> zzo38?
01:54:44 <monqy> guess who startscummed wizards for rings of polyself then died to system shock
01:54:51 <elliott> shachaf: (Is there any reason to autopickup those lamps/wands?)
01:54:57 <elliott> shachaf: (I mean, surely I'd know if I stepped on 'em.)
01:55:03 <shachaf> elliott: To save you the hassle?
01:55:19 <elliott> s/hassle/inconsistent behaviour considering nothing but gold (which is goldified) is picked up/
01:55:19 <shachaf> AUTOPICKUP_EXCEPTION="<*gray stone*"
01:55:37 <shachaf> elliott: Look, add whatever you want to your autopickup list!
01:55:40 <elliott> Anyway, OK, I think I'm ready.
01:55:45 <shachaf> (But don't add gray stone. That would be stupid.)
01:55:54 <elliott> monqy: curses interface: http://nethackwiki.com/mediawiki/images/9/96/Expanded-status.png
01:55:54 <monqy> is gold goldified in nethack?
01:56:05 <elliott> Isn't it?
01:56:11 <monqy> elliott: you sure that's not hugeterm?
01:56:14 <shachaf> what's glodiferd??
01:56:20 <elliott> monqy: It is.
01:56:22 <elliott> monqy: Unfortunately.
01:56:24 <elliott> But it's also curses.
01:56:36 <elliott> shachaf: Goldified means that the class of items in question is not present in the inventory and takes up no weight.
01:56:38 <monqy> karl is a bad person
01:56:56 <elliott> For instance, in Crawl, gold is goldified (it just adds to your gold count, nothing else), and so are runes (they just get added to the list of runes you've picked up).
01:57:10 <shachaf> elliott: Gold takes up weight.
01:57:11 <elliott> shachaf: Has it been half an hour yet?
01:57:25 <shachaf> elliott: Half an hour *after* we finish talking so I can do the thing I need to do.
01:57:31 <elliott> You didn't say that!
01:57:36 <shachaf> I meant it!
01:57:40 <elliott> Now I'm not going to let you do the thing you need to do.
01:57:44 <elliott> You have to watch me instead.
01:58:29 <elliott> shachaf: Did you hear that?
01:59:15 <shachaf> elliott: I gotta, like, go home, man. :-(
01:59:23 <shachaf> I don't even know your username.
01:59:28 <elliott> shachaf: Where are you? I bet where you are is great.
01:59:30 <monqy> you should have thought of that before !!
01:59:32 <elliott> My username is ehird. I haven't started playing yet.
01:59:36 <shachaf> Oh.
01:59:40 <shachaf> Great!
01:59:46 <shachaf> I'll go home in a moment and watch after that.
02:00:00 <shachaf> (UNLESS: I decide to do something else instead.)
02:00:05 <shachaf> (But I'll watch for a little bit.)
02:00:06 <elliott> OK, go home already.
02:00:07 <shachaf> (At least.)
02:00:09 <elliott> Oh.
02:00:12 <elliott> Does that mean now?
02:00:14 <elliott> I bet that means now.
02:00:16 <shachaf> No.
02:00:18 <shachaf> It means:
02:00:22 <shachaf> Later :'(
02:00:30 * shachaf detaches from irssi
02:01:03 <elliott> monqy: You'll watch me, right?
02:01:11 <monqy> yes
02:01:23 <monqy> i've had nao open ever since you said you'd play
02:01:24 <monqy> refreshing
02:01:26 <monqy> fruitlessly
02:01:31 <monqy> :'(
02:01:45 <elliott> sorry :(
02:01:49 <elliott> http://alt.org/nethack/player-stats.php?player=ehird Wow, I was diverse.
02:02:04 <monqy> at one point i accidentally a button that opened rcfile editing and i closed that but for some reason it closed the connection then when i reconnected i made a squarelos account
02:02:11 <elliott> http://alt.org/nethack/player-all.php?player=ehird
02:02:13 <elliott> What the fuck?
02:02:17 <elliott> I have not played this year.
02:02:21 <elliott> monqy: You pressed ^C.
02:02:35 <monqy> no
02:02:36 <monqy> i did not
02:02:49 <elliott> Oh.
02:02:51 <elliott> Okay, maybe I have played today.
02:02:54 <elliott> Erm.
02:02:56 <elliott> This year.
02:03:04 <elliott> One second.
02:03:10 <elliott> Let me check by watching the ttyrec.
02:03:45 <monqy> i remember you playing nethack but that may have been nh4
02:03:49 <elliott> It was NH4.
02:03:51 <elliott> Okay, okay, I'll play.
02:03:54 <elliott> Are you prepared???
02:03:57 <monqy> yes
02:04:32 <elliott> Warning - Boolean option specified multiple times: autopickup.
02:04:37 <elliott> BETTER FIX THAT
02:04:43 <elliott> Oops.
02:04:45 <elliott> I started the game anyway.
02:04:47 <elliott> Let me quit that.
02:04:50 <elliott> You are lucky! Full moon tonight.
02:05:08 <elliott> OK.
02:05:22 <monqy> what are you playing
02:05:28 <elliott> Wizard.
02:05:31 <elliott> Human, elf, gnome, orc?
02:05:33 <elliott> I just don't know.
02:05:33 <monqy> chaotic elf?
02:05:46 <elliott> Let me check [[nethackwiki:Wizard]].
02:06:03 <elliott> OK, humans seem to suck, gnomes can't be chaotic, and orcs suck at spells.
02:06:04 <elliott> So.
02:06:05 <elliott> Elf, then.
02:06:29 <monqy> you could be lawful and wear opposite alignment
02:06:34 <monqy> good ideas (c) monqy
02:06:42 <elliott> I wonder which gender I should be!
02:06:47 <monqy> both
02:06:54 <monqy> for optimal game play experience
02:07:06 <monqy> if you're female you can lay eggs; that's a boon
02:07:13 <monqy> can males do anything ?
02:07:15 <elliott> Ah, but
02:07:16 <elliott> Any eggs found and carried by male characters have a 50/50 chance of hatching tame. Eggs found and carried by females will never hatch tame. (Eggs laid by you will always hatch tame, regardless of your current gender.)
02:07:30 <elliott> "In NetHack brass, female characters dressed as nurses can apply bandages faster than men."
02:07:40 <monqy> thanks brass
02:07:43 <elliott> I'll just be male.
02:07:48 <elliott> Because I'm BORING.
02:07:51 <elliott> "Ehird the Evoker"
02:07:54 <monqy> how boring
02:08:08 <elliott> Unknown command 'y'.
02:08:09 <elliott> wh
02:08:18 <elliott> OPTIONS=number_pad:1
02:08:20 <elliott> What a terrible default.
02:08:23 <monqy> nethack is controlled exlusively by numpad
02:08:32 <monqy> "get used to it"
02:08:34 -!- tswett has changed nick to TenRantStew.
02:08:43 <elliott> Right, I'm back on.
02:08:46 <monqy> did you know: when i played nethack, for a while i exlusively used arrowkeys
02:08:50 <monqy> then i learned vikeys
02:09:21 <elliott> NetHack's interface is so weird, ugh.
02:09:33 <elliott> How do you cast spells?
02:09:36 <monqy> Z
02:09:45 <monqy> that;s a captal z
02:09:45 <elliott> What's elvish eyesight like?
02:09:54 <monqy> lower case z is zap wand
02:09:54 <elliott> And yes, I guessed.
02:10:03 <elliott> Joke time!
02:10:06 <elliott> How do you autoexplore?
02:10:13 <monqy> play nh4
02:10:39 <elliott> Do you know what's dumb?
02:10:44 <elliott> NetHack's secret corridor stuff.
02:10:58 <elliott> monqy: Now would be an excellent time to send me "hi".
02:11:11 <Patashu> elliott
02:11:15 <Patashu> you are playing nethack?
02:11:16 <Patashu> good luck
02:11:25 <elliott> Patashu: I've played NetHack before!
02:12:02 <elliott> monqy: Did that mail daemon just... reveal terrain for me?
02:12:12 <elliott> NetHack: so broken
02:13:01 <elliott> monqy: OK you have to reduce your frequency of mail-sending because NetHack's UI for it is awful.
02:13:05 <Patashu> haha
02:13:13 <elliott> Wait, where the heck is the shop?
02:13:22 <monqy> that may or may not be why i'm sending so much mail
02:13:38 <monqy> nethack's ui for mail is comically bad
02:13:47 <Patashu> you have to pick it up and read it, right
02:13:57 <elliott> Patashu: A mail daemon runs towards you.
02:14:01 <elliott> And a scroll of mail ends up in your inventory.
02:14:03 <elliott> Then you have to read it.
02:14:06 <elliott> And it doesn't just say
02:14:08 <elliott> someone: hi
02:14:09 <elliott> It says
02:14:24 <elliott> There is a message on this scroll. The message is from 'someone'.--More--
02:14:26 <elliott> It reads: "hi".
02:14:34 <elliott> monqy: Where's the shop :(
02:14:38 -!- Lumpio- has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
02:14:38 <monqy> you forgot "as you read the scroll it disappears"
02:14:42 <elliott> monqy: Ah, yes.
02:14:43 -!- TenRantStew has changed nick to tswett.
02:14:59 <monqy> try the black spots
02:15:20 <elliott> "A scroll of mail will "activate" an Elbereth square like any other object."
02:15:30 <Patashu> nethack is best game
02:16:03 <elliott> monqy: seriously though
02:16:22 <elliott> monqy: Seriously.
02:16:25 <monqy> it's red!!
02:16:28 <elliott> Yes.
02:16:30 <elliott> That's why I retreated.
02:16:31 <monqy> tjhat's serious
02:16:39 <monqy> when i played nethack i didn't have menucolors
02:16:46 <elliott> it's statuscolors
02:16:49 <monqy> so i didn't notice when i was dying
02:16:50 <elliott> this is menucolors
02:16:54 <elliott> wow each book contains one spell?
02:17:11 <monqy> nethack books tend to do that,y es
02:17:19 <elliott> is there a convenient key like 5
02:17:19 <elliott> i forget
02:17:24 <monqy> 100.
02:17:25 <elliott> Patashu: are you watching me; you should watch me!
02:17:45 <elliott> monqy: how can I tell which corpses are ok to eat ;(
02:17:46 <elliott> :(
02:17:51 <monqy> memorisation
02:17:54 <monqy> dont eat kobolds
02:17:59 <monqy> they're bad for you
02:18:01 <Patashu> You're not on nao
02:18:01 <Patashu> ?
02:18:03 <elliott> thanks
02:18:04 <elliott> Patashu: i am
02:18:05 <monqy> Patashu: ehird
02:18:11 <Patashu> oh, ok
02:18:18 <Patashu> and yes, you have to memorize or look up 99% of things in nethack
02:18:21 <elliott> monqy: do you want to hear a joke
02:18:26 <elliott> the joke is: x is examine in crawl
02:18:28 <elliott> but "switch weapon" in nethack
02:18:40 <elliott> the joke is: it takes a turn and leaves you bare-handed if you have no alternate weapon
02:18:41 <Patashu> isn't it l or v or something
02:18:42 <Patashu> in nethack
02:18:43 <Patashu> haha
02:18:44 <elliott> ;
02:18:47 <elliott> farlook is ;
02:18:51 <elliott> l is go right obviously
02:18:51 <Patashu> oh
02:18:54 <elliott> v is version
02:18:56 <Patashu> I would need to look up all of the keys
02:19:01 <elliott> monqy: should i wear the iron skull cap
02:19:05 <monqy> yes
02:19:09 <monqy> does patashue play net hack
02:19:23 <elliott> Patashu: where is the shop
02:19:26 <elliott> seriously!!!
02:19:26 <Patashu> I used to play it
02:20:09 <elliott> Patashu: WHERE IS THE SHOP
02:20:34 <monqy> try the black spots!!
02:20:36 <monqy> all of them
02:20:39 <elliott> monqy: I HAVE :(
02:20:44 <monqy> all of them?
02:21:02 <elliott> Do you want to hear another joke?
02:21:05 <elliott> NetHack's ally management system.
02:22:13 <elliott> Patashu: where is shop
02:23:39 -!- PatashuXantheres has joined.
02:23:45 -!- Patashu has quit (Disconnected by services).
02:23:47 <elliott> monqy: was that one of your funny jokes
02:24:06 <monqy> elliott: you're not giving me much to work with!!
02:24:36 <elliott> pls don't make the jokes TOO funny because I am really  bad  at  NetHack
02:24:45 <elliott> and thus will have no idea if you are serious or not
02:24:59 <monqy> that's part of the fun
02:25:42 <elliott> You faint from lack of food. You regain consciousness.
