00:02:58 <oerjan> there's a new irritating near-ultrasound in my room and it disappears when i turn off the laptop :(
00:03:54 <itidus20> so its not your laptop but your laptop makes it happen?
00:04:31 <oerjan> 's difficult to pinpoint the sound
00:06:45 <itidus20> hmm ok ok .. maybe what you need is a microphone which can detect this noise
00:07:06 -!- copumpkin has changed nick to imsaguy.
00:07:07 <Jafet> Fry some stereocilia
00:07:10 -!- imsaguy has changed nick to copumpkin.
00:07:33 <itidus20> and the microphone needs a way to be tracked within space
00:07:54 <itidus20> so that you can sweep the microphone around the room and create a map of the noise levels
00:09:50 <oerjan> perhaps the sound has always been there, and i just now noticed it...
00:09:56 <itidus20> files the issue as resolved on redmine
00:10:38 <oerjan> er perhaps it's resonating with something in the room of the new housemate
00:10:49 <itidus20> oerjan: hmmmmm i will say this much
00:11:12 <itidus20> my mum's radio... occasionally it has some specific interference
00:11:47 <itidus20> sounds almost like a decreasing frequency like pee-eooooOOOOOOOOOWWWW
00:12:08 <itidus20> my onomatopoeia probably doesn't help
00:13:17 <oerjan> this sound resembles slightly the sound of glasses vibrating while they touch, but much weaker (and i checked the kitchen)
00:14:01 <itidus20> anyway.. it seems that the revealed facts are 1) that it correlates with the on-ness of your laptop
00:14:16 <oerjan> and the strength changes greatly when i turn my head
00:14:45 <itidus20> but its not actually from your laptop right?
00:14:55 <itidus20> like if you took your laptop outside it would go away
00:14:55 <oerjan> i cannot tell for sure
00:15:32 <oerjan> it _does_ seem strongest next to the fan, although the usual fan sound overwhelms it
00:16:22 <itidus20> if you want to eavesdrop on walls, what i saw on tv is that the best solution is a thin paper cup
00:19:01 <itidus20> your theory about housemate's room sounds the best
00:20:05 <oerjan> except it doesn't actually get stronger toward that wall
00:21:48 <itidus20> i think you should try standing on different sides of doors, with the laptop in different locations
00:21:54 <oerjan> i lifted it and now it's started that clicking it sometimes does again
00:22:18 <itidus20> it's almost like a game of clue/cluedo
00:28:29 <Sgeo> What's the difference between Clue and Cluedo
00:28:37 <Sgeo> Also, people here know about Magic the Gathering being TC?
00:28:55 <Jafet> zzo does, but I don't.
00:29:08 <pikhq> Sgeo: I mentioned it earlier today.
00:29:26 <pikhq> Sgeo: Clue is the US name for Cluedo, IIRC.
00:33:54 <itidus20> i don't percieve cluedo as entertaining
00:37:24 <itidus20> basically any game which ends up being about finding the most efficient algorithm, i find that whole view of gameplay very lifeless
00:38:06 <pikhq> You must hate chess.
00:38:14 <Sgeo> I assume itidus20 wouldn't like BFJoust
00:38:24 <Sgeo> (Although I wouldn't call that "finding an efficient algorithm"
00:40:42 <itidus20> so when a baseball player hits a homerun, i do like the fact that they run around the bases even though the other team can't do anything to them
00:42:50 -!- Jafet has quit (Quit: Leaving.).
00:44:13 -!- Nisstyre has joined.
00:46:19 <itidus20> i think growing up i always expected games to have more to them
00:46:41 <itidus20> considering how big a part they are of international culture and all
00:48:20 <itidus20> the universe itself dissapointed me in regards to games
00:48:41 <itidus20> i guess similarly to the way that in the end matter turned out to be just atoms
00:49:02 <itidus20> or maybe particles is the word
00:50:44 <itidus20> memories and emotions turned out to be neurons
00:51:15 <itidus20> everything in this way is dull and dissapointing
00:51:38 <pikhq> Whaddya mean, disappointing?
00:51:53 <pikhq> Would you prefer a universe run by Ancient Greek physics?
00:58:08 <tswett> Perhaps a universe that doesn't actually behave in any way.
01:04:46 <itidus20> the ramblings of a depressed anxiouser
01:05:03 <itidus20> i was getting off topic though
01:05:07 * oerjan wonders if itidus20 would like nomic
01:05:13 <itidus20> the point is games do behave in a specific way
01:05:57 <itidus20> oerjan: the secret is that nothing needs to change except my point of view
01:06:07 <oerjan> it's very much not about finding an efficient algorithm :)
01:06:31 <oerjan> unless you happen to find a scam that requires one, of course
01:07:28 <itidus20> i don't think i hate chess itself, but more struggle with multiplayer games
01:07:34 <oerjan> <itidus20> oerjan: the secret is that nothing needs to change except my point of view <-- ah i've tried that. and then my body starts protesting.
01:07:58 <Sgeo> itidus20, try Game of Life. It's a 0 player game!
01:08:00 <oerjan> or something unbelievably irritating happens that destroys my patience to keep the change
01:08:27 <oerjan> it's very nice the first minutes, however.
01:08:33 <itidus20> i am unable to detach from real life while playing multiplayer games
01:09:00 <oerjan> presumably i'm doing it wrong somehow.
01:09:51 <itidus20> however there is something written somewhere about some important person who would lose his temper if he lost at chess
01:09:57 <oerjan> itidus20: ah there's a paradox then - single-player games have even more fixed rules (unless you're just making things up)
01:10:25 <itidus20> so my issue isn't even with the games, but with the socializing
01:10:26 <oerjan> and so become even more about perfecting your algorithm
01:11:14 <itidus20> its kinda like... if i would step out of your way on a street.. then i don't want to defeat you in a game
01:11:25 -!- copumpkin has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
01:11:26 <oerjan> itidus20: i also have trouble with multiplayer games where i need to out-think other people to have any chance of winning
01:12:08 <itidus20> my brother has been trying to help me with this
01:12:30 <itidus20> when we played some game he was like "if you don't defeat me i will kick your ass"
01:12:31 <oerjan> i was going to respond something but got a pain in my heart, so i guess intuition doesn't want me to
01:13:28 -!- copumpkin has joined.
01:13:31 <itidus20> so he has matured a lot since we were kids
01:14:13 <itidus20> he used to use the "if i hit reset i didnt lose" approach :D
01:15:44 * oerjan learns about ]p in vim
01:15:49 <itidus20> oerjan: uh.. i think in general i need to learn to be competitive
01:16:19 <oerjan> something tells me i've made haskell editing more painful without it...
01:16:27 <itidus20> naturally one can't enjoy a game if one is not competitive...
01:16:38 <itidus20> maybe that is why i described them as dissapointing
01:16:55 <oerjan> oh. i have sort of a moral disgust against being competitive.
01:17:35 <oerjan> by playing reasonably well and having luck, i guess.
01:17:49 <oerjan> not that i play much these days.
01:18:21 <itidus20> yeah, i guess being competitive over a game of chance is silly
01:19:10 <oerjan> or by being so much smarter i don't _have_ to try that hard, occasionally.
01:19:20 <Sgeo> And itidus20 have you ever played Backgammon?
01:19:27 <Sgeo> It's a combination skill and luck game
01:19:32 <oerjan> Sgeo: ]p is like p, but adjusts indentation
01:19:34 <Sgeo> Not sure if that's the sort of game you'd like
01:19:37 <Sgeo> What does p do?
01:19:59 <itidus20> Sgeo: i have revised my views... it seems that i am not dissapointed with the universe...
01:21:05 * oerjan crawls back under rock
01:21:06 <itidus20> but i don't get the maximum enjoyment from games because of reasons like not wanting to anger my opponent or not playing with a sense of competitiveness
01:21:07 <Sgeo> o.O wait how did I just change itidus20's mind?
01:21:28 <Sgeo> I wasn't trying to, or anything
01:21:33 <Sgeo> Or disagreeing with anything
01:22:03 <itidus20> also.. i think i get impatient with losing
01:22:59 <itidus20> on a single player game that is
01:23:06 <itidus20> im not sure how i feel about losing in multiplayer
01:25:19 <itidus20> Sgeo: i love to consider things like games being constituted of a combinatin of skill and luck... but i get worn out before i can analyze such ideas in full
01:27:13 <Sgeo> Well, in Backgammon, each player rolls dice, which determines what moves they can make. Sometimes the dice might be unhelpful. However, there are usually choices.
01:27:51 <Sgeo> Thus, in an individual game, luck might play a large role, but in theory, it should even out, resulting in the more skilled player winning more often on average.
01:27:57 <itidus20> there is this document which was on a 486 machine i once spewed so much writing into... no idea what i wrote... and i lost it
01:28:04 <itidus20> i always wonder just what the hell i said
01:35:19 <shachaf> kmc: Turns out screen doesn't support non-BMP characters.
01:36:47 <itidus20> i tried watching a peta page showing workers kicking live chickens but it wasn't enough to stop me
01:37:03 <oerjan> they have kfc in australia?
01:37:26 <itidus20> yes.. we have pizza hut, kfc, subway, mcdonalds, burgerking (as hungry jacks)
01:38:05 <Phantom_Hoover> <itidus20> Sgeo: i love to consider things like games being constituted of a combinatin of skill and luck... but i get worn out before i can analyze such ideas in full
01:38:23 <Phantom_Hoover> how can someone be so self-aware of all their problems and yet be totally unable to act upon them

15:01:33 <Arc_Koen> I'm trying to make a truth-machine in Another Pi Language
15:02:10 <Arc_Koen> the program is 32-bit long and I found the first 17 bits in the decimals of pi
15:02:19 <Arc_Koen> I mean in the binary digits of pi
15:05:17 <Arc_Koen> ok I found the first 22 bits on a webpage that had more digits (though did not number them so I have no idea of the position)
15:05:40 <Arc_Koen> 10 more bits and that would be the first Another Pi Language program!!

16:48:18 <FreeFull> Weird, properDivs x = nub $ init $ map (foldr (*) 1) $ subsequences $ primeFactors x doesn't work once you get rid of the x
16:51:42 <FreeFull> Arc_Koen: over 10**13 digits of pi have been calculated
16:51:48 <FreeFull> So you hvae plenty to look through
16:52:16 <Arc_Koen> well I need to find a web page with enough binary digits
16:53:24 <Arc_Koen> the first page I looked into had only 32000ish and I found a 17bit sequence in it; the second had way more digits and I found a 22bits sequence in it, but I don't know how many digits there were exactly
16:54:19 <Arc_Koen> assuming the binary digits really are random, I should probably calculate an how many digits I need to find my 32bit sequence with reasonable probabilities.
16:55:33 <FreeFull> "The search string "0123456789" was not found in the first 2,000,000,000 decimal digits of Pi."
16:58:02 <Arc_Koen> yeah and 10^10 and 2^32 are about the same
16:58:13 <fizzie> Just ask Google. "0123456789 occurs at 6214876462", from MathWorld.
16:59:11 <fizzie> Oh, that's not the number you care about.

17:01:15 <Arc_Koen> so I guess I need the first 40 000 000 000 binary digits
17:02:33 <Arc_Koen> the sequence I'm searching for is 0110 0001 1100 1110 1111 1101 1100 1110

17:05:23 <Arc_Koen> yeah well I said I needed the first 40 billions!

17:06:28 <Arc_Koen> http://pi.nersc.gov/cgi-bin/pi.cgi?word=61CEFDC&format=hex
17:06:29 <olsner> the first (decimal) zero is surprisingly far into pi, position 32 or whatever it is
17:06:54 <Arc_Koen> well 32 when you have 1/10 doesn't see so far does it?
17:07:18 <Arc_Koen> hmm unfortunately my program doesn't work without the last 4 bits
17:07:32 <jiella> so I've been wondering... what's with the limes on the wiki?
17:10:11 <oklopol> olsner: it's not at all surprising, 0's occur in pi at rate 1/32. the proof doesn't fit in this irc message but i'm sure you can work it out.
17:10:11 <Arc_Koen> search string (61CEFDC) found at binary index = 2869529096
17:10:48 <Arc_Koen> I wanted to use that argument to "prove" a joke language Turing-complete
17:11:23 <oklopol> the problem is anything fits on a wiki page :(

18:11:32 <olsner> it's to prevent the wiki from getting scurvy

18:48:18 <Sgeo__> No. It's a "language".
18:48:25 <jiella> oerjan: a pun fail there too, hmm? I've already made some embarrisingly bad puns out of the lime thingy
18:48:47 <Sgeo__> Don't dignify it by putting it in the same category as PHP and COBOL.
18:49:06 <olsner> I can't think of any puns related to limes, how do you do it?
18:49:06 <Sgeo__> It's not the PHP of Esolangs, that's an insult to PHP.
18:49:28 <Sgeo__> http://esolangs.org/wiki/Esme
18:49:32 <olsner> insults to PHP are generally considered a good thing though
18:49:44 <jiella> oerjan: the thing is though that every time I read something on the wiki, I get the stupid lime & coconut song stuck in my head
18:50:46 <oerjan> olsner: you just need to do some sublime thinking
18:50:57 <oerjan> (that was the pun that went horribly wrong btw)
18:51:09 <olsner> jiella: if you ask nicely, can probably get elliott to make the wiki play lime in the coconut in the background
18:51:44 <Sgeo__> If an esolang is like the speech of a vapid person, Esme makes Snooki's talking sound like a PhD thesis.
18:52:07 <Sgeo__> Ok, so maybe I shouldn't insult people in my attempt to make fun of Esme.

20:33:06 <Phantom_Hoover> atriq, oerjan, any idea what the game referenced in Darths & Droids 775 is?
20:33:46 <atriq> The forum doesn't have a clue either
20:34:10 <atriq> Possibly Star Trek?
20:35:56 <kmc> pilots are usually named "Pilot"
20:36:00 * kmc deliberately misinterprets
20:36:56 <Phantom_Hoover> Also 'shellshocked pilot' makes it sound more like a fighter pilot.
20:37:30 -!- MoALTz_ has quit (Quit: Leaving).
20:38:30 <olsner> oh, and I this shuttle set is built out of a repurposed ferengi shuttle set
20:38:44 <kmc> _Lost_ is the only show I know of where the pilot is titled "Pilot" but this also works as a normal episode title
20:38:49 <olsner> or repainted more than repurposed, perhaps
20:39:06 <kmc> _Seinfeld_ had an episode called "The Pilot" in season 4
20:39:09 <kmc> it's, like, meta, man
20:39:29 <olsner> oh, it refers to that pilot?
20:39:55 <Phantom_Hoover> atriq, (the named pilot I was talking about was the guy who Ezri investigates the death of in a DS9 episode.)
20:40:09 <atriq> I'm not a huge star trek fan, I'm afraid
20:40:19 <atriq> As in, I've watched the newest movie and maybe two episodes?
20:40:29 <olsner> don't be afraid, star trek is nice
20:40:46 <kmc> star trek, isn't that for nerds or something
20:42:04 <atriq> Reluctant doctor = Simon Tam, pilot = Wash, shellshocked pilot = River Tam, nurse = oh dear I don't know
20:42:45 <atriq> But not many miracles
20:43:01 <olsner> but the comic was about a game? not a sci fi series?
20:43:10 <Phantom_Hoover> but i was under the impression that river tam mostly just kicked people and ticked boxes on whedon's list of fetishes
20:43:32 <atriq> She became the pilot at the end of the movie after spoilers happened
20:43:32 <kmc> i wonder how many seasons firefly could have run before becoming shitty
20:44:03 <kmc> i think the film basically demonstrates the hypothetical viability of a second season
20:44:09 <kmc> beyond that, idk
20:45:12 <Phantom_Hoover> olsner, D&D has this running joke where the characters reference other roleplaying games they've played.
20:45:34 <Phantom_Hoover> And they're all real-world films or TV shows or whatever.
20:45:47 <Phantom_Hoover> The first one was Princess Bride and I think they just rolled with it.
20:46:05 <atriq> Then it was a mash of Twilight and Van Helsing
20:46:43 <hagb4rd> twilight? wasn't that ages after your last d&d game?
20:47:03 * hagb4rd only knows that twilight movies
20:47:12 <atriq> We're talking about the webcomic Darths and Droids

21:25:02 <kmc> so it has the real paper
21:25:10 <kmc> you can't do this with Euro notes because the more valuable ones are bigger
21:31:52 <kmc> that's less than €2 though

21:38:18 <kmc> makes sense
