00:09:25 <olsner> hah! ascii didn't get a character set until 1994
00:10:19 <olsner> well, it might have just had a different one than the one it has now
00:35:24 <elliott> olsner: really?
00:39:11 <olsner> yes, it has CPGID 367 registered in -78 but its GCSGID 103 was only registered in -94

10:11:00 <fizzie> Hello from a train!
10:11:14 <fizzie> It's a very modern train, it has free wifi.
10:11:29 <fizzie> It's like a third millennium here.
10:13:27 <fizzie> Oh, e already left.
10:13:36 <fizzie> Failed completely to notice.

10:22:16 <shachaf> hizzie
10:23:24 <fizzie> Fo shizzle.
10:23:34 <fizzie> (I used to be called "Fizzle" quite a while ago.)
10:23:46 <shachaf> Hizzlequiteawhileago
10:23:47 <nortti> why?
10:24:25 <fizzie> Why what?
10:25:08 <nortti> why you used to be called fizzle?
10:25:18 <fizzie> I don't know. Why am I called "fizzie" now?
10:25:37 <fizzie> Man, there's even a service that shows the train's current GPS'd position and speed on a map.
10:25:44 <olsner> fizzle was just a stepping stone to complete the transformation into fizzie
10:25:57 <fizzie> I went from Fizzle to Fizzie to fizzie, IIRC.
10:25:59 <shachaf> fizzıe is next.
10:26:11 <shachaf> Or maybe fızzıe
10:26:30 <shachaf> fizzıe
10:26:36 <nortti> what are those chars? fbcon shows those as blocks

12:58:05 <Gregor> OK, I officially love these pants.
12:59:38 <Taneb> The yellow ones?
12:59:47 <olsner> Gregor: I think you made that official yesterday already
13:00:08 <Gregor> But now I'm WEARING THEM.
13:00:11 <Gregor> And they're AMAZING.
13:00:28 <Taneb> Are they comfortable?
13:00:33 <Gregor> Surprisingly.
13:00:48 <Taneb> Do they help attract members of the opposite gender of your species?
13:01:07 <Gregor> They seem to! Also same gender! AND OTHER SPECIES!
13:01:16 <Taneb> THEN THEY ARE PERFECT
13:01:26 <Taneb> Unless they prevent you from eating or something
13:02:24 <olsner> there seems to be a risk that Gregor will be too mesmerized by his own pants to remember to breathe and/or eat
13:02:36 <Gregor> There is that risk.
13:02:44 <Taneb> Is it significant?

13:32:27 <Taneb> Alas, I am not.
13:32:48 <Taneb> I'm the illegitimate child of Phantom_Hoover and elliott sent back in time to write songs for Gregor

14:09:06 <fizzie> If it means the process, it's also not completely automatized. But generally I do some preprocessing steps, run one script to go from text to tokens (converts punctuation to "PFOO"-style things), then run the VariKN tools to get an .arpa n-gram model file, and finally another script to convert from .arpa to the model.bin + tokens.bin that fungot understands.
14:09:07 <fungot> fizzie: i said. you idiot!!! how much do you explain your sources.
14:09:38 <olsner> oh, sounds complicated
14:10:01 <fizzie> I had a C++ program (of all things) to read tokens and write model.bin + tokens.bin directly.
14:10:18 <fizzie> But then I wanted to use that VariKN thing for something useful for once.

14:20:15 <fizzie> You can try to add some ad-hoc filtering for "phrase-like" things.

18:28:30 <nortti> that would be awesome
18:28:41 <fizzie> Things like 'x' that pop off K elements, where K is the dimensionality, might need some reworking for the infinite-dimensional case.
18:29:56 <fizzie> I would be surprised if some of the more HLLy interpreters didn't do arbitrary (fixed) dimensionality already.
18:30:10 <fizzie> You can use 'x' to change direction.
18:31:30 <fizzie> Something like 000001000 to go the direction of the positive sixth axis in a 9-funge.
18:32:57 <nortti> fizzie: does funge support negatibe numbers? what about bigint?
18:33:14 <FreeFull> How about befunge, but with not just orthogonal but also knight movement
18:33:41 <fizzie> FreeFull: You can already do that in funge-98.
18:33:47 <nortti> how?
18:33:47 <fizzie> 12x will start to move knightly.
18:34:29 <fizzie> nortti: Sure for negative numbers, but there's no one-character instruction to push one. Things like 04- work for pushing -4, though.
18:34:45 <fizzie> I believe there are bignum-celled funges too.
18:35:20 <fizzie> Don't know what they return as the cell size for 'y'.
18:37:09 <olsner> 1?
18:37:44 <fizzie> That sort of overlaps with an 8-bit funge.
18:38:49 <Deewiant> -1 IIRC

18:51:39 <oerjan> ah.
18:52:10 <oerjan> so it will only become a problem once he is 66% senile.

18:56:15 <fizzie> Deewiant: The spec just says "-- cell size. Typically 4, could also be 2, 8, really really large, infinity, etc."
18:56:54 <olsner> could it really be "infinity"?
18:57:20 <fizzie> Sounds unlikely.

18:57:40 <olsner> I guess it could be in floatfunge though
18:57:48 -!- azaq23 has quit (Max SendQ exceeded).
18:57:50 <fizzie> I suppose a bignum funge could also extend the integers with (possibly a positive and negative) infinity values too.
18:58:30 -!- tswett has joined.
18:58:30 <fizzie> It does say elsewhere that cells are integers, though.
19:00:46 <Deewiant> fizzie: Yes, the spec is nonsense on that, but IIRC efunge is the only proper bignum implementation and IIRC it pushes -1.
19:01:32 <fizzie> -1 is reasonable.
19:02:00 <quintopia> pantgaze is my favorite style of music
19:02:05 <fizzie> It could also push some very large number if the "bignums" are not actual bignums; IIRC at least gmp integers have a theoretical limit.

21:06:17 <nortti> how do I replace all occurences of / with \/ using sed?
21:06:47 <nortti> I tried s/\//\\\//g but sed says it is missing a /
21:07:45 <nortti> erm. sed: bad option in substitution expression
21:07:46 <olsner> actually, you're missing a \
21:07:54 <olsner> or maybe not
21:08:30 <olsner> here's a working substitution for slashes and some other things: s/\([.*+(){}^$<>[\\ |]\|\]\)/\\\1/g
21:08:31 <nortti> is there any way to make sed use some other char as s command delimiter?
21:09:17 <oerjan> nortti: maybe you are getting shell escapes interfering?
21:09:19 <olsner> I think so, but I don't remember what it is... could be s\, or something like that
21:09:39 <nortti> oerjan: I'm using quotes
21:09:49 <olsner> if s,,,g doesn't even just work as-is
21:10:18 <nortti> oerjan: oh. it still results in those problems
21:10:45 <nortti> "s/\//\\\\\\//g" works

23:46:29 <ion> Always tell at least two people to do the same thing and promise them that the one to finish the fastest is the least likely to get fired next.
23:46:52 <olsner> ooh! the threat of unemployment is indeed a great motivator
23:47:28 <olsner> luckily, we're dealing with horrible programmers here, so they won't simply leave if you mistreat them
23:48:25 <olsner> the downside is if you end up having to actually fire someone, you get more efficient communication between the remaining ones
23:48:52 <olsner> (is it possible to hire some horrible consultants to help out with the miscommunication?)
23:49:13 <oerjan> you cannot fire them, they might get somewhere they can do actual damage
23:52:08 <FreeFull> How about you change the specification every day
23:52:17 <FreeFull> So that they can never finish
23:52:51 <olsner> well, that'll happen anyway
23:53:38 <olsner> so maybe it'll be better to let them code towards an old specification for a bit longer
23:53:57 <olsner> maybe you'd do the swapping between projects for each new rewrite of the spec, with a biweekly release schedule for spec changes
23:55:54 <olsner> if you have some choice of programmers, you could also choose a french/english or e.g. english/japanese team so that you have disjoint groups of programmers that require translators to communicate
23:56:23 <olsner> naturally, code comments (if any) must be in either group's native language
23:58:30 <FreeFull> You could not give them a specification, and when they code something always tell them that it's wrong, not specifying what's wrong with it
23:58:33 <oerjan> using more than one programming language too, perhaps?
23:58:52 <FreeFull> Perl, COBOL and PHP
