19:52:05 <olsner> oerjan: there's like one other living language in the whole hellenic language group, but it's dying
19:52:22 <atriq> Greek had a lot of influence on Latin
19:52:35 <atriq> And hence the romantic languages and English
19:52:53 <oerjan> olsner: um greek is indoeuropean. that means it's rather closer related to say english and swedish than to any language which isn't
19:52:57 <olsner> the closest relation to other languages seems to be that it's indo-european, but "almost everything" is
19:53:23 <atriq> The tree model is a poor approximation at best
19:54:48 <Sgeo> This was typed in using a Clojure REPL that has access to awtbot
19:54:53 <Sgeo> (Although I press Enter myself)
19:55:14 <oerjan> i actually recall a theory that implies that languages are _not_ all related - namely that in some places with very friendly climate new language families may be created by children getting lost before learning to speak. it supposedly might explain why new guinea as such an enormous amount of language families (iirc the theory also said there was a part of california that used to be like this)
19:55:31 <oerjan> *has such an
19:55:37 <Sgeo> It was slow
19:56:33 <olsner> yeah yeah, but learn a germanic language and a romance language and you have a head start on a large proportion of european languages, but knowing any or all of those seems to help very poorly when it comes to understanding greek
19:56:46 <oerjan> olsner: hey just because indo-european is the largest language family doesn't mean there are no others.
19:57:19 <olsner> bah, you're just picking on the wrong ends of everything I've said :)
19:57:51 <Sgeo> This is a test, this is only a test.
19:57:52 <oerjan> olsner: that's because they all share a lot of latin loanwords, but there are greek ones too.

20:21:46 <lexande_> today i went to a talk where the speaker kept prefacing his theorems with "If ZFC is consistent, then"

20:23:20 <pikhq> "Hey guys, I've got a proof that ZFC is consistent!"
20:23:24 <pikhq> "Fuck you."
20:24:08 <zzo38> Why? Would some theorems fail if ZFC is inconsistent? If ZFC is inconsistent wouldn't everything be a theorem?
20:24:33 <pikhq> zzo38: If you prove ZFC consistent using ZFC, it is not consistent.
20:25:11 <oerjan> olsner: not exactly i think
20:25:13 <zzo38> pikhq: Yes I know that too; I was refering to lexande_'s message about the speaker who kept prefacing his theorems with "If ZFC is consistent, then"
20:25:52 <quintopia> hi zzo38
20:25:56 <Taneb> Is ZFC the one that's equivalent to Axiom of Choice?
20:26:00 <oerjan> http://www.nrk.no/mat/1.6150114 has a recipe in norwegian - by tina nordström :)
20:26:31 <quintopia> Taneb: it contains the AoC as an axiom
20:26:36 <Taneb> Oh
20:26:45 <quintopia> zorns lemma is equivalent to the aoc
20:26:49 <lexande_> zzo38, the theorems were like, if ZFC is consistent then there is a model of a multiverse of forcing with these properties
20:27:10 <lexande_> Taneb, ZFC is just the usual axioms of set theory/maths, including Choice
20:27:12 <zzo38> lexande_: O, OK. So that's why he did that.
20:27:17 <Taneb> I was thinking of Zorn's lemma
20:27:37 <Taneb> Or possibly the Well Ordering Principle
20:27:52 <Taneb> This is like yesterday when I got 5th Cell and Level 5 mixed up

20:28:09 <olsner> (it's simpler too)
20:29:44 <oerjan> olsner: i think no:kålruletter (rather old-fashioned) is about the same as sv:kåldolmar, however
20:30:06 <zzo38> I realized what I forgot in RogueVM which is banks of the screen grid (like screen pages on PC)
20:30:57 <zzo38> I expect two pages is sufficient, but if you don't agree, please notify me.
20:31:41 <olsner> oerjan: I think that's essentially the same as cabbage pudding but in a different format
20:31:58 <oerjan> "The Axiom of Choice is obviously true, the well-ordering principle obviously false, and who can tell about Zorn's lemma?"
20:32:18 <oerjan> olsner: well yes it was mentioned in a pudding page

21:06:25 <olsner> "Typically a crystal ball is connected to the chip at OSC1 and OSC2 pins."
21:06:43 <quintopia> is it an oracle chip?

21:08:36 <olsner> I'm guessing OSC stands for oracular sensor chip (circuit?) or somesuch
21:09:32 <olsner> Oracular Scintillator?

22:19:10 <zzo38> Do you like these ideas for scenarios of the Dungeons&Dragons game? * The sun rises in the wrong place. * Suddenly the money changes into different money. * The phase of the moon is now different shapes other than round, such as square and hexagon and so on. * A dwarf walks in to a bar (ouch). Heal him, please. * Help a beholder find his lost monocle/glasses.
22:21:06 <zzo38> * A war occurs over unclaimed land. * Some people assign the party to a completely impossible task (not because it is too difficult, but because of references to things that do not exist, or illogical things, etc). * Kjugobe and other illithids pursued by illithid slayers and evil druids. The illithid slayers and evil druid should probably be defeated. * The king is allergic to magic and wishes all spellcasters (arcane, divine, and psionic) d
22:21:24 <zzo38> * You find a map, but it is all wrong.
22:40:30 <itidus21> some of them
22:41:43 <itidus21> where some means none <= some <= all
22:41:56 <zzo38> OK yes that is what I thought you meant.
22:42:01 <itidus21> cool
22:42:22 <zzo38> However that is not specific as to what?
22:42:30 <itidus21> exactly
22:43:50 <itidus21> scenarios are quite strange
22:43:55 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:45:08 <zzo38> * The king of another city is attacking gibbering mouthers as well as anyone who enters his city. Hold the second one as you hold a pencil, in order to save the gibbering mouthers from the king's army. Bonus points if you give Potion of Confusing to gibbering mouthers who like that. * Someone wants to charge minstrels everywhere royalties. Stop their evil scheme. * A few magical items are found; you must not only figure out exactly what they do
22:45:13 <zzo38> I hope this message is not too long.
22:47:09 <itidus21> my useless contribution doubled it's size.
22:47:47 <zzo38> Is it exactly double?
22:48:10 <itidus21> nah
22:48:36 <itidus21> anyway, i think you could afford to make it 50 lines long...
22:48:58 <itidus21> excluding my part of it
22:49:46 <oerjan> zzo38: ... exactly what they do
22:50:11 <zzo38> What is the last word you have received in the long message?
22:50:28 <oerjan> i just told you.
22:51:35 <oerjan> oh and the previous one stopped at (arcane, divine, and psionic) d
22:51:47 <zzo38> * A few magical items are found; you must not only figure out exactly what they do (identification magic cannot be used), but also how to effectively use them for escape.
22:51:53 <zzo38> * The king is allergic to magic and wishes all spellcasters (arcane, divine, and psionic) destroyed (including the royal spellcasters).
22:51:57 <zzo38> Is it OK now?
22:52:02 <oerjan> looks so
22:52:39 <shachaf> "Shun magic, and shun the appearance of magic! Shun everything, and then shun shunning!"
22:53:12 <Sgeo> I wonder what people who think that Rails is too "magic" think of Clojure stuff, considering the usage of macros
22:53:24 <Sgeo> Do macros tend to feel less magic than run-time metaprogramming?
22:53:38 <kmc> i think so yes
22:53:48 <kmc> you can ask for the macro expansion
22:54:03 <zzo38> I don't know Clojure but I think in general, both macros and run-time can be useful.
22:54:22 <kmc> and they're sort of visual analogies
22:54:35 <kmc> at least in simple cases and with tasteful use of quasiquoting
22:56:56 * Sgeo is suddenly sad that Tcl doesn't have quasiquoting
22:57:01 <itidus21> zzo38: so it worked out at about 23 lines.
22:59:15 <zzo38> oerjan: Do you like this game?
22:59:26 <itidus21> * Some people assign the party to a completely impossible task (not because it is too difficult, but because of references to things that do not exist, or illogical things, etc). <-- this is a fairly good explanation of koans :D
22:59:41 <zzo38> How does quasiquoting work?
22:59:53 <zzo38> In those programming language?
23:00:05 <zzo38> itidus21: OK.
23:00:54 <itidus21> eg. The king assigned his best knight to find a man who could demonstrate the sound of one hand clapping.
23:01:22 <itidus21> ^well a man or woman
23:01:41 <itidus21> ^anyone or anything who could
23:03:53 <oerjan> zzo38: i'm not particularly interested
23:04:52 <zzo38> oerjan: OK.
23:08:08 <itidus21> hmm
23:08:44 <itidus21> so all this talk of scenarios reminds me of an interview with a final fantasy scenario writer where he explained that if scenario writing was automated he would be out of a job
23:09:42 <itidus21> so on the subject of humans jobs being automated by machines, the machines don't really make mistakes. and when they do they follow fairly pre-defined routines to deal with them
23:10:06 <itidus21> and if in practice they need help when they fail, then they are not infact entirely automated
23:10:32 <itidus21> but also, when humans do a job they always consider ways it can be done better or differently
23:10:49 <itidus21> and when they make mistakes it can inspire breakthrouhgs
23:11:20 <zzo38> I wrote them by hand. Some are based on ones from other sources, some are based on a computer game I have written, and some I just wrote my own. Automated programs can sometimes help a little bit but you still have to program it and modify its program to make a new one, and then if you don't like the result, modify it.
23:11:23 <itidus21> so machines are learning to react to feedback
23:11:36 <itidus21> however
23:11:50 <itidus21> i suspect that its just not the same
23:19:51 <itidus21> once a machine spends all it's time experimenting on work, it's no longer doing work

23:23:41 <FreeFull> itidus21: Now, how do you fully automate them if humans make mistakes
23:25:28 <itidus21> i guess that nothing truely gets perfected
23:26:16 <itidus21> because... i could barely parse that sentence.. thats my excuse
23:26:21 <itidus21> for being wrong
23:27:00 <Sgeo> Is it really that wrong to want to use java.awRobot as a fun toy?
23:27:12 <Sgeo> erm, java.awt.Robot
23:28:02 <elliott> urd
23:28:03 <elliott> *yes
23:28:06 <elliott> you're morally culpable
23:29:40 <Sgeo> ##java didn't like my implication that my reason for wanting to use java.awt.Robot was becuase it seemed fun
23:29:50 <itidus21> Sgeo: i want to make a robot in 2d using textured vector graphics which can position it's legs using inverse kinematics
23:30:19 <itidus21> but then again im not sure that i do
23:31:13 -!- augur has joined.
23:32:03 <itidus21> its one of many things
23:32:06 <Sgeo> awtbot is a nice Clojure library for using it, but it has an idiotic with-robot macro. Maybe it was written before doto worked with all forms?

23:37:20 <itidus21> and here i was thinking it might relate to robotics :P
23:37:26 <itidus21> i just looked up what its for
23:38:13 <elliott> Sgeo: hi
23:38:52 <itidus21> sounds like it could be useful for writing aimbots in video games
