00:57:20 <kmc> information-theoretically, how much do you lose by insisting on a self-synchronizing code
01:12:01 <oerjan> my guess is nothing in the limit of long enough strings
01:12:47 <oerjan> *code words
01:15:45 <kmc> i think so too
01:15:49 <kmc> or, sufficiently many code words
01:16:00 <kmc> the framing is a constant amount of mutual information between the sender and receiver
01:25:08 <kmc> the heating vents in my house are producing air that smells like naptha
01:36:39 <oerjan> just a portal to hell, nothing to worry about
01:39:25 <kmc> k
01:42:25 <shachaf> kmc: have you had strawberries with balsamic vinegar yet!
01:44:30 -!- ais523 has quit.
01:45:06 <kmc> no
01:46:52 <kmc> the JavaScriptMVC people got back to me
01:47:24 <kmc> kind of an odd response
01:47:34 <kmc> it starts with "Thanks for pointing this out. And we will likely change it."
01:47:45 <kmc> and then explains various reasons why they shouldn't have to change it and don't want to
01:48:58 <elliott> haha
01:49:00 <elliott> what are the reasons
01:49:19 <kmc> predictable ones
01:49:28 <elliott> (1) we didn't mean that so it doesn't count (2) even if we *did* mean that it'd be okay
01:49:34 <elliott> (3) ???
01:49:34 <kmc> yeah
01:49:53 <kmc> i will unfairly paraphrase them as "it's your fault for noticing that the word 'craftsman' is based on the word 'man'"
01:50:06 <kmc> also "thinking of non-gendered terms is simply beyond my ability as a writer"
01:51:11 <oerjan> "craftspeople" hth
01:51:56 <kmc> ends with 'Do you think we can ever live in a world where we can say "all woman created equal" or "craftsman" without everyone getting upset? Where people don't read into meanings that aren't there.'
01:52:04 <kmc> which is a pretty perfect opportunity to link http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~evans/cs655/readings/purity.html
01:52:34 <elliott> do you think we can ever live in a world where people who make shitty javascript frameworks don't consider themselves authorities on everything
01:52:35 <kmc> also i guess this is one of those areas where calmly pointing out the unintended consequences of someone's actions is equivalent to "getting upset"
01:52:40 <kmc> elliott: no hth
01:53:30 <elliott> kmc: imo point out that "all woman created equal" isn't grammatically correct
01:53:43 <kmc> heh
02:02:01 <shachaf> You could just use Text. :-)
02:02:04 <shachaf> Er.
02:02:07 <shachaf> That was my knee.
02:02:16 <Fiora> ugh, the "I didn't /intend/ to be sexist/racist/etc, so it wasn't"
02:02:28 <shachaf> kmc: That was the response you expected, right?
02:02:58 <kmc> also they cited south park to make some unclear point
02:03:01 <kmc> which is... not a great sign
02:03:05 <kmc> shachaf: i expected worse
02:03:08 <Bike> sounds like a bingo to me
02:03:33 <shachaf> "you think i'm sexist? well that just makes you sexistist!"
02:03:34 <kmc> like, they are saying incorrect things, but in a way which is potentially open to calm discussion, and they *did* say they're going to change it
02:03:44 <kmc> which is better than i hoped because i'm a misanthrope
02:03:48 <kmc> or.... humanist?!?!?

02:04:26 <Fiora> um, hi
02:04:33 <kmc> i'm avoiding even saying that their word choice is "sexist" because at the end of the day this is a pretty small thing
02:04:38 <kmc> i would say "exclusionary" and perhaps "alienating"
02:04:41 <kmc> these are some good words
02:04:45 <Fiora> othering
02:04:49 <kmc> yeah
02:04:49 <Fiora> exclusionary is probably the best I think

02:12:07 <shachaf> newcomers
02:12:21 <elliott> excuse me

02:12:27 <elliott> i just spent several minutes welcoming Fiora
02:12:29 <kmc> i wrote that zalgoizer

02:12:37 <elliott> rather upset at the implication that i don't like newbies
02:12:42 <shachaf> Back in the golden days of kmc+#haskell
02:12:58 <shachaf> Newcomers always need to be welcomed 12 different ways.
02:13:00 <kmc> mostly i like that it uses literal combining characters in the source
02:13:01 <shachaf> So annoying!
02:13:07 <kmc> i wonder if a strict reading of the haskell report would reject it
02:13:08 <elliott> Fiora: also where did you come from. this is part of your mandatory #esoteric survey
02:13:16 <kmc> a) hexham b) finland c) other
02:13:20 <Fiora> um, Bike invited me
02:13:21 <Bike> I linked her kmc's article on jit spraying.
02:13:26 <elliott> noted
02:13:31 <kmc> i believe in fact that Fiora was here yesterday
02:13:39 <elliott> you both have short names that start with an uppercase letter so that makes sense
02:13:51 <shachaf> 11:55 <oerjan> Fiora: well we all hate Lolcode here, that's similar
02:13:51 <Bike> drat, our camouflage foiled
02:13:54 <kmc> i noticed that we have both a FreeFull and FireFly, that's confusing

02:15:05 <elliott> Fiora: it's ok. you'll get used to it. after a while the swats don't even hurt

02:37:20 <elliott> In my humble opinion, Charles Barkley is the greatest on-air talent we have in the United States; I can honestly say that with a straight face.
02:37:20 <elliott> He is completely honest and if you can't laugh while watching him on a broadcast then something may be wrong with you.
02:37:20 <elliott> Last night, the Orlando Magic advanced to the NBA Finals by knocking off LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. However the highlight of the night for me came when Charles Barkley called his producer a p***y on air.
02:37:22 <monqy> i'm getting this all from multiple sources i want to be sure i have the right definition
02:37:27 <elliott> Yes, that's right: Charles Barkley really did say that. Talk about coming out of left field.
02:37:37 <elliott> The reason you're not finding anything is because there is no such thing as a phosphorus bomb today. The proper name is "incendiary bomb with white phosphorus", and it was outclassed by napalm since Korean War.
02:37:40 <elliott> it's the reporters with NO understanding of military terms, that invent names like "phosphorus bomb".

02:40:14 <elliott> Each time we venture outside of our beloved Orange Bubble, we are sure to meet and chat with the many non-Princetonians of the world. It is at this time that we are confronted with a perplexing dilemma that can have far-reaching implications for the rest of the interactions we will have with this person: Do we reveal the fact that we go to Princeton? And if we do, how do we go about it?
02:40:14 <elliott> There seems to be this sense of discomfort, this tendency toward hesitation, whenever a situation arises where we are prompted to disclose the name of our university. This is true not only for Princeton students, but for students of every school that has gained a prestigious reputation. However, to keep the focus on us, there is a Princeton-specific phrase that one of my classmates once used for this sort of university disclosure that I will use
02:40:15 <elliott> henceforth, and that phrase is “dropping the P-bomb.”
02:40:27 <elliott> wow this might be the most pretentious thing ever written
02:40:38 <shachaf> i have a check which is cached
02:40:44 <elliott> When entering into a conversation with a stranger of the non-Princetonian variety, the accepted protocol is not to first ask what res college the person is from, what they’re planning on majoring in and the other banal college questions we like to ask each other, but to start off more broadly. Introductions do usually include information about what people do with their lives, however, and it is a normal convention to ask college-age-looking peo
02:40:44 <elliott> ple if and where they go to school.
02:40:44 <elliott> When this question arises, we have two viable options: the straight P-bomb route or the New Jersey route. Many of us, I’ve learned, like to first choose the New Jersey route, where we simply answer the question of what college we go to with “ I go to school in New Jersey.”
02:40:53 <shachaf> "correct facsimile"
02:41:09 <kmc> 'did they teach you that word at Talk Like a Dick School'
02:41:12 <elliott> [...]
02:41:12 <elliott> The first possibility is this: We are not uncomfortable with dropping the P-bomb at all. In fact, maybe it’s our favorite thing to do. Maybe we love that moment when people ask us where we go to school so much that we draw it out, make it last longer, make a production out of it. They ask what school we go to, we name a state instead. Answering in this vague way effectively doubles the number of questions we get to answer about where we go to s
02:41:12 <elliott> chool, and we love that. And the suspense! We create this awesome level of suspense so that when they ask question number two — “Where in New Jersey?” — we can really drive it home with a nice, resounding “Princeton!”

02:55:36 <tswett> I see I've been quoted.
02:55:53 <tswett> I wonder if I was quoted saying that there is no computable set of axioms in first-order logic that uniquely defines the natural numbers.
02:56:06 <tswett> ...Gee, there's no computable set of aximos in first-order logic that uniquely defines the natural numbers.
02:56:09 <tswett> That's pretty weird.
02:56:47 <shachaf> tswett: what about:
02:57:05 <shachaf> "1. numbers 2. natural"
02:58:00 <tswett> Good job, you've successfully broken mathematics.
02:58:20 <tswett> This will cause the world to explode in 1,000 days.
02:58:46 <kmc> so how bout them natural numbers, eh? ain't no computable set of axioms what can uniquely define them
02:59:32 <tswett> I know, right?
02:59:34 <tswett> That sure is weird.
02:59:58 <tswett> It makes me want to, like, postulate two hypothetical non-isomorphic standard models of the natural numbers.
03:01:00 <tswett> Let's do that now. Let Na be a model of the natural numbers in which Goldbach's conjecture is false, and Nb be a model of the natural numbers in which Goldbach's conjecture is true.
03:01:06 <shachaf> kmc: not in first order logic
03:01:41 <tswett> So in Na, there exists a natural number (call it g) that cannot be written as the sum of two primes. But in Nb, there is no such natural numbers.
03:01:58 <tswett> Does g also exist in Nb? If so, then Nb must have some prime numbers that are absent from Na, right?
03:02:09 <zzo38> Is Goldbach's conjecture undecidable? Does it depend on models of natural numbers?
03:02:24 <tswett> zzo38: yes if and only if yes.
03:02:29 <tswett> Respectively.
03:02:51 <tswett> I think it doesn't make much sense to say that Na and Nb both contain g, but Nb contains numbers smaller than g that Na does not contain.
03:02:55 <zzo38> O, but other than that it mean you don't know?
03:03:03 <kmc> what's really crazy is that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadwiger%E2%80%93Nelson_problem might depend on set theoretic axioms
03:03:17 <tswett> zzo38: ...I think that's right.
03:03:51 <tswett> So what does make sense to me is to say that Na contains all the numbers that Nb contains, and then some.
03:03:57 -!- Arc_Koen has quit (Quit: Arc_Koen).
03:04:13 <zzo38> Are there really different models of natural numbers which are not equivalent?
03:04:37 <tswett> zzo38: well, it depends on what you mean by "models of natural numbers", exactly. If you mean "models of the first-order Peano axioms", then yes, certainly.
03:04:37 <zzo38> I would think: data Natural = Zero | Succ !Natural;
03:05:00 <tswett> That's not a set of first-order axioms, though; that's a Haskell statement.
03:05:40 <zzo38> I know. But I thought it is equivalent?
03:05:42 <shachaf> zzo38: ⊥ :: Natural
03:06:47 <zzo38> Well, if you ignore bottom, I mean.
03:06:53 <tswett> kmc: I dunno, that's not so crazy to me. In the past, the real numbers used to seem ill-defined to me. Then I learned how they were defined, but they still seemed all iffy and abstract.
03:07:12 <tswett> zzo38: well, yeah, that's kind of what the problem is. How do you say "ignore bottom" in first-order logic?
03:09:08 <kmc> real numbers is hax
03:09:21 <tswett> Okay, so Nb is a model of the natural numbers containing a counterexample to Goldbach's conjecture. Na is a model containing no such thing. We're also postulating that Nb is a supermodel of Na.
03:09:32 <tswett> Say that a "nubber" is a number that's in Nb, but not in Na.
03:09:59 <shachaf> R is just P(N)
03:10:13 <tswett> And a "namber" is one that's in Na. Aye?
03:10:25 <kmc> is it a hyphen? or is it a minus? only your wallet knows for sure.
03:10:50 <shachaf> "don't believe the hype hen"
03:11:02 <tswett> So the nambers are closed under addition, right? And multiplication, I think... exponentiation I'm not sure about.
03:11:08 <KALLISTI> double_facepalm.jpg
03:11:11 <kmc> tswett: by "standard models" did you mean "non-standard models" above?
03:11:28 <tswett> kmc: nope.
03:11:33 <kmc> how can they both be standard?
03:11:36 <tswett> I was kind of going for multiple standard models.
03:11:48 <tswett> Well, how do you define "standard" here?
03:11:52 <kmc> oh because we're talking about two different universes, with different results for t he goldbach conjecture
03:11:58 <kmc> and the "standard" model in each one
03:12:04 <tswett> That sounds right.
03:12:12 <kmc> but it's not thought that goldbach is actually independent of axioms, ja?
03:12:37 <tswett> It seems perfectly plausible that it is.
03:13:04 <kmc> i have no idea how to even think about the plausibility of that statement
03:13:09 <kmc> anyway please do proceed with your original train of thought
03:13:24 <shachaf> TRAAAAAIN
03:13:27 <tswett> Well, does Goldbach's conjecture seem like it's probably decidable to you?
03:13:31 <zzo38> But I thought, natural numbers is just zero and successor? Therefore how can there be different models following this specification which are different Goldbach's? Since you can define addition, multiplication, etc, using finite numbers. Using something like Typographical Number Theory that might not be the case though, but if you define like zero and successor instead it seem.
03:13:32 <kmc> sea dot sea
03:13:33 <tswett> It's independent of the axioms if and only if it's undecidable.
03:14:09 <tswett> zzo38: "just zero and successor" isn't a set of first-order axioms, either.
03:14:52 <shachaf> kmc: You should come back to #cslounge!
03:15:29 <zzo38> tswett: Well, yes, "just zero and successor" is like the Haskell statement I mentioned above, instead. Therefore, do you need a set of first-order axioms which means this specifically?
03:15:30 <tswett> The first-order Peano axioms are a set of first-order axioms. They're infinite, but they're also a computable set.
03:15:53 <kmc> shachaf: like a thief in the night
03:16:16 <tswett> zzo38: well, I'm *talking about* sets of first-order axioms.
03:16:30 <tswett> So if you want to talk about the same thing that I'm talking about, then yes, you need a set of first-order axioms.
03:17:35 <Sgeo> I hate politeness.
03:17:51 <Sgeo> It makes it impossible to ask someone "Hey, does this site work well for you" and actually get useful info
03:18:37 -!- tswett has set topic: E_TOPTOOOLD | the good news is, /usr/bin/make-loud-noises works. the bad news is, I think I just woke everyone up. | http://codu.org/logs/_esoteric/.
03:19:06 <kmc> what does it do
03:19:44 <Sgeo> kmc, what, you want to test?
03:20:59 <zzo38> In Wikipedia "Peano axioms", if you just use 2,3,4,5 for eqality, and then you should define it. Is the zero and successor can be made the axioms from that? Due to such things as induction and so on, possibly not... and, is it infinite? They list nine axioms.
03:21:28 <kmc> /usr/bin/make-loud-noises
03:21:41 <Bike> they're axiom schema, aren't they
03:22:01 <tswett> zzo38: axiom 9 is stated twice. First, it's stated as a second-order axiom, not a first-order axiom; second, it's stated as an infinite axiom schema.
03:22:59 <zzo38> O, it is an axiom schema. Now I can understand.
03:23:26 <zzo38> TNT has induction as a rule rather than axiom.
03:24:49 <zzo38> They also say "if there is a proof that starts from just these axioms and derives a contradiction such as 0 = 1, then the axioms are inconsistent, and don't define anything" but, if there would be such thing even if you omit axiom 7 or axiom 3, does it define anything?
03:25:07 <kmc> "In particular, he gained international notoriety for his claims that blowing up the Moon would solve virtually every problem of human existence"
03:25:42 <KALLISTI> what
03:25:54 <kmc> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Abian
03:26:12 <tswett> zzo38: uhh, let me rephrase your question, and you can tell me if I rephrased it correctly.
03:26:50 <tswett> "Suppose that, if you remove axioms from the Peano axioms, you can get an inconsistent system. Then are the Peano axioms inconsistent?"
03:27:01 <Bike> «Abian said that "Those critics who say 'Dismiss Abian's ideas' are very close to those who dismissed Galileo."» usenet has the best cranks.
03:28:13 <zzo38> tswett: No. That is not what I meant. I meant that if you have 0=1 it seem would be to contradict the axioms I specified. So, if it is inconsistent, and then does that make it not inconsistent?
03:28:59 <tswett> I don't know what you mean by "the axioms [you specified]", nor by the "it" in "if it is inconsistent", nor the "it" in "does that make it not inconsistent".
03:29:15 <tswett> s/ specified]/] specified/
03:29:50 <zzo38> kmc: Why would he say such things? Perhaps if they destroy humans it would solve that problem, if destroying the moon would have such effect, but still it won't help since it would mess up everything else too. Best way is allow planets to move how they do, to keep the solar system in order.
03:30:17 <zzo38> tswett: I mean axiom 3 and 7, I mean if you have 0=1 even if removing one of those two axioms.
03:30:21 <shachaf> zzo38 makes a good point
03:30:48 <Bike> tswett: so, looking at tennenbaum's theorem... could you have an uncountable model of peano with computable arithmetic?
03:31:01 <tswett> zzo38: yeah, sorry, I don't understand what you said, and I don't understand your attempts to get me to understand what you said.
03:31:16 <tswett> Bike: no.
03:31:23 <zzo38> tswett: Oops, sorry!!!!
03:31:30 <Bike> why not?
03:31:30 <tswett> Bike: er, wait. Hm.
03:32:05 <tswett> I thought Tennenbaum's theorem said that no nonstandard model of Peano arithmetic can be recursive; it actually says that no *countable* nonstandard model of Peano arithmetic can be recursive.
03:32:43 <Bike> that's what I was referring to, yeah.
03:32:59 <tswett> Bike: well, the thing is, I don't think "computable" makes sense as a property of uncountable sets. We only speak of the computability of a set of it contains only finite strings, I think. And no uncountable set contains only finite strings.
03:33:49 <Bike> yeah, that's why I said computable arithmetic instead of computable set.
03:34:52 <tswett> "Computable function" can be defined as "function that, when considered as a set, is a computable set".
03:35:16 <tswett> And "computable arithmetic" presumably means "collection of arithmetic functions, each of which is a computable function".
03:36:18 <Bike> so no models with computably dealt with nonstandard numbers, then
03:40:47 <tswett> Yeah, that sounds true.
03:52:06 <elliott> did you know there's no computable set of axioms in first-order logic that uniquely identifies when tswett will shut up about there being no computable set of axioms in first-order logic that can uniquely define the natural numbers
03:52:53 <tswett> I will shut up about it after a non-standard amount of time.
03:53:16 <monqy> how about right now
03:53:22 <monqy> alt. in the past????
03:53:33 <monqy> either works
03:53:49 <tswett> Nope, it's only been 23 seconds. 23 is a standard number.
03:53:59 <kmc> how about eleventeen
03:54:09 <tswett> I'm not sure.
03:54:31 <tswett> Can you give me a first-order formula defining eleventeen?
04:00:35 <pikhq_> 11 = succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ 0
04:00:53 <monqy> > succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ succ 0
04:00:55 <lambdabot> No instances for (GHC.Enum.Enum
04:00:55 <lambdabot> ((((((((((a0 -> a0) ->...
04:00:58 <monqy> yes
04:01:06 <elliott> did you know there's no computable set of axioms in first-order logic that uniquely identifies what will make tswett shut up about there being no computable set of axioms in first-order logic that can uniquely define the natural numbers
04:01:27 <Fiora> shachaf: sorry, I was away for a bit... also my local time should really be PDT but I kind of forgot how to set it on this linux box
04:02:55 <elliott> Fiora: ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/[something] /etc/localtime usually
04:03:20 <elliott> might also be able to do "timedatectl list-timezones" then "timedatectl set-timezone <name>"
04:03:49 <elliott> though daylight savings time should be handled automatically if you have stuff set up properly
04:04:11 <Fiora> ln: creating symbolic link `/etc/localtime': File exists
04:04:15 <Fiora> should I remove it?
04:04:24 <elliott> depends, what does ls -l /etc/localtime give
04:04:36 <Fiora> ummm
04:04:38 <Fiora> $ ls -l /etc/localtime
04:04:38 <Fiora> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 118 Jul 27 16:39 /etc/localtime
04:04:42 <elliott> huh
04:04:49 <elliott> then
04:04:50 <elliott> yes
04:04:55 <elliott> since that should be a symlink :P
04:05:09 <Fiora> I must have botched it at some point <_>
04:05:24 <pikhq_> ln -sf /usr/share/America/Los_Angeles /etc/localtime ;# no?
04:05:41 <Fiora> yay it worked
04:05:45 <Fiora> 20:05 < Fiora> yay it worked
04:06:06 <elliott> pikhq_: i doubt it is /usr/share/America
04:06:17 <elliott> but yes [something] = America/Los_Angeles in my line I think
04:06:26 <Fiora> Yup, it was that
04:06:27 <elliott> also you might have to reboot for this to work or at least restart programs you care about
04:06:36 <Fiora> IRSSI seems to have taken instantly!
04:07:08 <elliott> huray
04:07:24 <elliott> this calls for celebration. should welcome some pepole
04:07:28 <elliott> pepole
04:07:58 <Jafet1> Peepol
04:08:08 <kmc> on debian: dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
04:08:27 <Fiora> I'm using an amazon micro instance so I'm stuck with yum
04:08:33 <kmc> hm
04:08:36 <elliott> fedora? ew
04:08:42 <Fiora> but it worked so I'm not going to fuss with it anymore
04:08:52 <kmc> i am irssi'ing from an ubuntu server ec2 micro instance right now
04:09:00 <kmc> i wonder why you got stuck with fedora
04:09:27 <Fiora> the free tier on amazon only let you use their install I think?
04:09:32 <Fiora> at least it was when I set this thing up
04:09:37 <Fiora> but I might be wrong
04:09:41 <elliott> do EC2 instances cost reasonable amounts of money yet
04:09:46 <kmc> i think that has changed
04:09:51 <kmc> elliott: my micro instance is free for a year :D
04:09:54 <kmc> but in general 'no'
04:10:03 <kmc> i mean it is reasonable if you actually need fancy dynamic scaling
04:10:05 <Fiora> I just use my free micro as an IRC bouncer thing for my irssi
04:10:07 <kmc> i think it's a reasonable fee for that
04:10:24 <kmc> most of their users are not that, they're just startups with too much money who don't think of traditional dedicated hosting
04:10:27 * kmc guilty
04:10:48 <kmc> i run irssi on ec2 and connect to it with mosh
04:10:50 <kmc> it's pretty sweet
04:11:13 <Fiora> mosh?
04:11:19 <kmc> http://mosh.mit.edu/
04:11:25 <Fiora> ooooh
04:11:35 <Fiora> is there a windows client? I use putty right now
04:11:35 <elliott> kmc: how much are the mosh people paying you
04:11:40 <kmc> elliott: nothing
04:11:47 <kmc> i have done some development for mosh though
04:11:48 <elliott> kmc: you should get a raise!!
04:11:52 <kmc> it's just an open source project at mit
04:11:53 <kmc> i know rite
04:11:59 <kmc> Fiora: there is an experimental cygwin port
04:11:59 <elliott> i know what mosh is kmc
04:12:33 <Fiora> oh wow, they actually have it inside the cygwin packagemanager
04:12:56 <kmc> cygwin is not the most elegant solution here but nobody has really come forward to do the work for a native windows port
04:13:01 <Fiora> oh, now it's deciding it has to upgrade my entire cygwin installation
04:13:08 <Fiora> probably good to do that anyways.
04:13:11 <pikhq_> elliott: XD
04:13:15 <kmc> heh
04:13:29 <Fiora> um, I'm guessing I'd have to install a server on my amazon ec2 instance?
04:13:54 <kmc> yeah it's in fedora
04:13:58 <kmc> you just install the mosh package on the server
04:14:03 <Fiora> >No package mosh available.
04:14:04 <Fiora> eep
04:14:07 <kmc> oh, might be too old
04:14:25 <elliott> at least it's fairly easy to compile mosh yourself
04:14:29 <elliott> since you don't need to set up a daemon or anything
04:14:34 <kmc> yeah the dependencies should be in fedora
04:15:09 <kmc> hey cool netbsd is on there now
04:15:37 <elliott> mosh toaster
04:15:40 <kmc> yes
04:16:18 -!- ogrom has joined.
04:16:23 <elliott> moaster
04:16:40 <Fiora> oh no it doesn't have protobuf either :<
04:17:03 <Fiora> agh wildly following dependency chains manually
04:17:11 <kmc> that's odd
04:17:38 <Fiora> configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
04:17:41 <Fiora> ahhhhhh
04:18:07 <elliott> nice
04:18:12 <elliott> do you not have a compiler toolchain installed or something
04:18:19 <Fiora> .... oh. I had gcc but not g++
04:18:24 <Fiora> and nothing had needed g++ yet so I didn't notice
04:18:36 <Fiora> and the configure script somehow got past that check without noticing it was missing I think <_<
04:18:41 <elliott> nice error for it
04:19:02 <elliott> kmc: nice rant on the mosh issue tracker "I tried using Mosh for the connection persistence, and nothing I read prior to using it gave me a clear indication that it was anything but an ordinary shell with an improved transport. When Mosh discarded some important output I had no idea what was going on, and I wasted a few days (calendar time, several hours actual troubleshooting time) looking at everything else because it didn't occur to me that a
04:19:02 <elliott> tool for persistent connections and better latency would also throw away my data. After that, I can't trust you, not because the way Mosh works is unreasonable, but because the way it is described fails to convey that you can't count on receiving the complete output of any command."
04:19:06 <Fiora> yuuuup that was it
04:19:09 <elliott> (they are complaining because mosh doesn't have scrollback)
04:19:30 <Fiora> okay now to compile on a 1-core 1ghz virtual server thing -_-
04:19:49 <Jafet1> Important output
04:19:53 <Jafet1> over remote shell
04:19:57 -!- Jafet1 has changed nick to Jafet.
04:20:10 <elliott> Fiora: hey i'm using a 1.33 ghz laptop thing
04:20:10 <pikhq_> In scrollback.
04:20:11 <elliott> "it works"
04:20:15 <elliott> "sort of"
04:20:33 <Bike> what he said
04:20:36 <elliott> i think it would honestly be faster to compile some things by scping them over to my server
04:20:37 <Fiora> I'm spoiled with my laptop okay >_>
04:20:37 <elliott> compiling them there
04:20:40 <elliott> and then downloading the binaries
04:20:46 <Jafet> There is memory that's faster than that CPU
04:20:56 <Fiora> Yeah, I had that experience once when I had to play with an, um... I think it was a 600mhz arm
04:21:00 <pikhq_> Jafet: Doubtful.
04:21:02 <kmc> yeah i saw that
04:21:18 <pikhq_> Jafet: The memory bus speed might be 1.33GHz, but the RAM's internal clock is at 200MHz.
04:21:25 <pikhq_> As has been the norm for a decade now.
04:22:32 <Fiora> it just feels weird to like, compile on something 20 times slower than my computer
04:23:21 <pikhq_> Try using qemu sometime.
04:24:13 -!- Frooxius has quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds).
04:24:54 <shachaf> Fiora: PDT?
04:24:58 -!- ogrom has quit (Quit: Left).
04:25:07 <shachaf> I didn't think they used that anywhere, this time of year.
04:25:15 <pikhq_> shachaf: America/Los_Angeles . :)
04:25:30 <pikhq_> zoneinfo time zone naming is so much better.
04:25:30 <Fiora> okay PST I guess ^^;;
04:25:32 <Fiora> I always forget which is which
04:25:33 <shachaf> PST!
04:25:36 <shachaf> That's the time zone to be in!
04:25:38 <shachaf> @localtime
04:25:42 <lambdabot> Local time for shachaf is Mon Nov 19 20:25:39 2012
04:25:45 <Fiora> @localtime
04:25:51 <lambdabot> Local time for Fiora is Mon Nov 19 20:25:46 2012
04:25:57 <pikhq_> Daylight time sucks.
04:26:00 <Bike> does it just use dcc, or what
04:26:02 <shachaf> Fiora: Hmm, looks like you're 7 seconds ahead of me.
04:26:08 <Fiora> the message came later
04:26:09 * pikhq_ lives basically on the MST meridian!
04:26:11 <pikhq_> @localtime
04:26:16 <lambdabot> Local time for pikhq_ is Mon Nov 19 21:26:12 2012
04:26:27 <Fiora> I think the 7 seconds is just the gap between them...?
04:26:30 <elliott> i don't really like zoneinfo naming
04:26:34 <elliott> singles out single areas weirdly
04:26:35 <Bike> i believe that is The Joke, fiora.
04:26:42 <Fiora> .... oh <_> sorry
04:26:52 <pikhq_> elliott: It's saner than any other timezone naming scheme I've seen though.
04:26:54 <elliott> have you noticed your eyes are pointing away from each other
04:27:06 <elliott> pikhq_: well UTC+n and UTC-n are pretty good
04:27:08 <pikhq_> Other than, of course, constant offsets from UTC, but that requires saner *time zones* in the first place.
04:27:12 <shachaf> Bike: Are you also in PST?
04:27:17 <elliott> UTC+0(1)
04:27:22 <shachaf> San Francisco is The Place To Be, as you know.
04:27:35 <pikhq_> elliott: Doesn't tell enough *at all*.
04:27:49 <Bike> shachaf: rather far from LA, but yes
04:27:55 <shachaf> elliott: hi should foo :: Fol.Foldable f => f a -> [a]; foo = ($ []) . appEndo . Fol.foldMap (\x -> Endo (x:)) be a function
04:28:00 <shachaf> monqy: ☝☝☝☝☝☝☝☝
04:28:07 <monqy> hi
04:28:09 <shachaf> hi
04:28:22 <shachaf> Bike: I was in LA once!
04:28:26 <shachaf> Assuming you mean Los Angeles.
04:28:27 <Bike> what's appEndo? applicative endomorphism
04:28:28 <pikhq_> elliott: To give you an idea: the state of Indiana has *11* different zoneinfo entries.
04:28:30 <shachaf> Not Louisiana.
04:28:32 <shachaf> Or Los Alamos.
04:28:33 <elliott> yeah but indiana doesn't exist
04:28:39 <monqy> shachaf i need some "lens help"
04:28:41 <shachaf> Or Laos?
04:28:49 <elliott> Bike: newtype Endo a = Endo { appEndo :: a -> a }
04:28:50 <shachaf> monqy: uh oh
04:28:52 <monqy> im sory i cant go through with this joke
04:28:55 <elliott> i.e. appEndo :: Endo a -> (a -> a)
04:28:59 <Bike> I wonder if laos has ever been called LA in the history of the universe
04:28:59 <monqy> elliott can you finish it
04:29:02 <elliott> monqy: no
04:29:03 <elliott> monqy: do it
04:29:03 <monqy> deliver the punchline
04:29:06 <monqy> :(
04:29:07 <elliott> you have to
04:29:09 <elliott> its your duty
04:29:22 <shachaf> monqy: do it
04:29:22 <elliott> Bike: well laos is .la isn't it
04:29:25 <elliott> and that tld is used for los angeles!
04:29:27 <elliott> stuff
04:29:29 <elliott> (wrongly)
04:29:39 <shachaf> Fiora: help what are you doing in laos
04:29:51 <monqy> i m sory i cant
04:29:54 <Fiora> I'm south of LA, not in laos
04:29:55 <monqy> the delivery is wack
04:29:55 <elliott> monqy: i believe in you
04:30:02 <shachaf> I was south of LA!
04:30:05 <Bike> I kind of instintively hate cctlds though, so I refuse to acknowledge their existence, sorry about that
04:30:06 <shachaf> I went to San Diego.
04:30:28 <Bike> i think i've been in LA a couple times, roasting on the asphalt gridlock probably
04:30:30 <elliott> i don't like cctlds much
04:30:31 <zzo38> I don't like daylight saving time. Also, the time zones is not designed best but I don't know what is best. One way is using precise time zones using same hours/minutes/second as the angle.
04:30:54 <shachaf> zzo38 has a plan to redesign time zones?
04:30:55 <elliott> monqy: you can do it
04:31:01 <shachaf> elliott: "took me by surprise"
04:31:14 <zzo38> (When the (sidereal) hour is angle, 1 hour = 15 degrees, which is used to measure right ascensions and hour angles.)
04:31:22 <monqy> elliott: but how!!!
04:31:25 <shachaf> monqy: do it
04:31:26 <zzo38> However, solar time is not exactly like UTC it is only by average.
04:31:30 <shachaf> monqy: use "your creativity"
04:31:31 <monqy> shachaf: can you do it for me
04:31:46 <shachaf> no monqy
04:31:54 <shachaf> there comes a time in every monqys life
04:32:01 <shachaf> when that monqy must finish their own jokes
04:32:21 <elliott> monqy: for once in my life i'm gonna have to agree with shachaf
04:32:31 <monqy> shachaf: im sorry its up to you now. search for "the joke" on the Lens documentation at http://tedlab.mit.edu/~dr/Lens/ using the Lens documention's Search It feature
04:32:42 <monqy> elliott: im sorry
04:32:49 <zzo38> Actually I don't have plan to redesign time zones. I just have some ideas having to do with time zones.
04:32:57 <shachaf> monqy: help whats a search.php
04:33:11 <monqy> shachaf: surprise you got joked
04:33:23 <monqy> imo look at search.php's contents
04:33:28 <elliott> monqy: that was a pretty bad delivery monqy
04:33:31 <monqy> "it includes the shell command executed to do the search"
04:33:33 <elliott> you screwed up your one chance to make that joke
04:33:44 <kmc> phphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphphp
04:33:44 <monqy> elliott: i told you i couldnt do it!!!!
04:33:50 <elliott> monqy: you didn't even include the fact that you are personally using lens currently!!
04:33:57 <elliott> im sorry monqy its just not good enough
04:33:57 <elliott> leave
04:33:59 <monqy> shachaf: the joke is im using this thing
04:34:00 <Bike> it... downloads the php
04:34:02 <elliott> leave
04:34:03 <Bike> is this real
04:34:09 <kmc> ρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρηρη
04:34:29 <elliott> monqy: its not optional. this is your penance
04:34:41 <monqy> may i asked to be kicked
04:34:44 <monqy> it's what shachaf would do
04:34:47 <monqy> and you agree with shachaf right
04:35:30 <tswett> kmc: RHR?
04:35:44 <shachaf> monqy: no
04:35:50 <shachaf> monqy: i dont want to get kicked!!
04:35:55 <monqy> elliott: you disagree with shachaf right
04:35:56 <shachaf> dont "spread rumours" monqy
04:36:37 <shachaf> elliott: help
04:36:44 <shachaf> elliott: "i really cant figure out this lens issue"
04:37:02 <monqy> elliott: ooh ooh can i make the joke now
04:37:04 <shachaf> elliott: "maybe its because i spend all my time complaining about it instead of thinking about it"
04:37:24 <monqy> search the lens document for "the issue". i am using this software.
04:37:29 <monqy> elliott: did i do it good
04:37:32 <elliott> monqy: no sorry
04:37:34 <elliott> please
04:37:38 <elliott> leave before you embarrass yourself further
04:37:39 <elliott> at least for a minute
04:37:42 <elliott> everybody is crying
04:37:43 <monqy> i refuse
04:37:44 <shachaf> monqy: dont leave
04:37:50 <monqy> now im conflicted
04:37:50 <shachaf> monqy: we all love you monqy
04:37:56 <elliott> monqy
04:37:57 <shachaf> ♥ monqy
04:38:01 <shachaf> ♥onqy
04:38:02 <elliott> this wont be tolerated
04:38:12 <monqy> make me not tolerate it!!!!
04:38:15 <elliott> ok
04:38:16 <elliott> im doing it
04:38:22 <elliott> im focusing my hatred
04:38:31 <shachaf> copumpkin: "should i read that book"
04:38:42 <copumpkin> ?
04:38:49 <shachaf> _Concrete Mathematics_
04:39:11 <shachaf> I heard it's good.
04:39:20 -!- monqy has quit (Quit: Lost terminal).
04:39:31 <copumpkin> oh
04:39:34 <copumpkin> yeah!
04:40:00 <shachaf> Hawaii did experiment with DST for three weeks between April 30, 1933 and May 21, 1933; there is no known official record as to why it was implemented or discontinued.[18][unreliable source?] Hawaii has never observed daylight saving time under the Uniform Time Act, having opted out of the Act's provisions in 1967.[19]
04:40:03 <elliott> @tell monqy you can come back now
04:40:03 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
04:40:11 <shachaf> copumpkin: You read it?
04:40:20 <copumpkin> yep
04:41:37 <Fiora> um, kmc, I installed protobuf from source (just configure and sudo make install...?) but mosh says it can't find it
04:41:49 <Fiora> "package protobuf was not found in the pkg-config search path"
04:43:19 <shachaf> Fiora: What distribution-thing are you using?
04:43:28 * shachaf recommends strace
04:43:33 <Fiora> it's the amazon ec2 fedora thing
04:43:53 * shachaf randomly wonders whether `ldconfig` will fix it.
04:44:02 <shachaf> Maybe it's an issue of paths and /usr/local/?
04:44:10 <shachaf> Why not install protobuf from a package?
04:44:19 <Fiora> because the system doesn't seem to have it as a package :<
04:44:19 <tswett> RHR Hypertext... Rearranger?
04:45:41 <Fiora> I guess I can try rebuilding it and stuffing it in /usr...
04:46:05 <shachaf> No, don't do that!
04:46:12 * shachaf doesn't know how pkg-config finds things.
04:46:21 <Fiora> I have no idea either >_<
04:46:24 <elliott> it uses uhhh
04:46:27 <elliott> PKG_CONFIG_PATH or something
04:46:30 <shachaf> @google fedora protobuf
04:46:32 <lambdabot> https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/protobuf
04:46:36 <shachaf> Does that not exist?
04:46:43 <elliott> apparently it is PKG_CONFIG_PATH
04:47:00 <Fiora> sudo yum install protobuf
04:47:00 <Fiora> Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, security, update-motd, upgrade-helper
04:47:03 <elliott> also did i actually just get monqy to leave
04:47:04 <Fiora> Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * amzn-main: packages.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
04:47:06 <elliott> i didn't want to do that!!
04:47:07 <Fiora> * amzn-updates: packages.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
04:47:10 <Fiora> Setting up Install Process
04:47:12 <Fiora> No package protobuf available.
04:47:12 <shachaf> elliott: "ok but what if that variable is unset"
04:47:16 <shachaf> Fiora: Did you search?
04:47:24 <shachaf> Maybe it's protobuf-devel or something.
04:47:29 <shachaf> libprotobuff
04:47:31 <shachaf> s/.$//
04:47:36 <shachaf> protoc
04:47:36 <Fiora> search finds no matches
04:47:43 <shachaf> protobuf-compiler
04:47:45 <shachaf> Oh.
04:47:57 <Fiora> sorry... bleh I will just keep using putty I guess, this is a hassle
04:48:07 <shachaf> Fiora: Maybe #mosh would know.
04:48:15 <elliott> well man pkg-config documents what it does when the path isn't empty
04:48:18 <elliott> er
04:48:19 <elliott> is empty
04:48:53 * Fiora goes back to playing civ and reading wikipedia articles on nuclear isomers
04:50:53 <shachaf> Fiora: You should learn about lenses instead!
04:51:07 <shachaf> "lenses: the nuclear isomers of the 21st century??"
04:51:08 <Sgeo> Oh, I forgot to list my list
04:51:25 <Sgeo> elliott, monqy isn't here, coppro except I think you're not on the list. List.
04:51:30 <Fiora> maybe metameterial lenses? those sound kind of cool I think
04:51:45 <elliott> Sgeo: monqy explicitly told you to add Fiora to the list!!
04:51:48 <Bike> they make lenses out of metamaterials now, huh
04:52:00 <Sgeo> Fiora, do you want to be on the list?
04:52:01 <shachaf> Sgeo: Fiora does not wish to be on the list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
04:52:06 <Fiora> what is "the list"? >_<
04:52:11 <Fiora> everyone keeps talking about it but I don't know what it is
04:52:20 <Sgeo> Someone should explain
04:52:36 <shachaf> Fiora: You wan't to be on the list.
04:52:39 <elliott> no i think it is better that way
04:52:43 <shachaf> (That's a contraction for "want not".)
04:52:51 <Fiora> this channel is confusing ;-;
04:53:13 <shachaf> they all are
04:53:15 <Sgeo> I'm going to break down in 2 minutes and explain it privately
04:53:23 <shachaf> Sgeo: Wait, what *is* the list?
04:53:31 <elliott> no
04:53:37 <elliott> nobody needs explanations
04:53:37 <shachaf> Is it just Homestuck updates or what?
04:53:40 <Sgeo> Just noticed Fiora with the explanation
04:53:45 <elliott> oh no!!!
04:53:46 <elliott> we're all going to die
04:53:49 <shachaf> Sgeo: help i never got an explanation
04:53:50 <elliott> brimstone rains from the sky
04:53:51 <shachaf> what is it??
04:53:57 <elliott> the truth of The List comes to torture us
04:54:02 <elliott> heavens fall
04:54:08 <elliott> nations collapse
04:54:09 <Fiora> Sgeo: ohhh!! put me on the list then
04:54:13 <Fiora> that sounds super useful
04:54:18 <elliott> all die in an endless fire of suffering
04:54:25 <elliott> i hope you're happy sgeo
04:54:26 <elliott> i hope you're happy
04:54:38 <Bike> perhaps you could make a list of ways the truth of The List will come to torture us, elliott.
04:54:58 <Sgeo> It's funnier to leave shachaf out of the loop. Although cruel. But funny.
04:54:59 <elliott> that was a list Bike
04:55:02 <elliott> aren't you happy
04:55:07 <elliott> is my List not good enough
04:55:15 <Bike> wait is it a list or a List
04:55:25 <Fiora> does it implement the List interface?
04:55:26 <elliott> what's the difference
04:55:38 <Bike> i dunno, but there is a difference, so it's probably important
04:55:44 <shachaf> Fiora: help are you java :'(
04:55:52 <Fiora> um, I know a little java but I don't use it much
04:56:03 <shachaf> you should use Real Languages
04:56:10 <shachaf> like m68k assembly
04:56:15 <Fiora> um..... do C and x86 assembly count?
04:56:22 <shachaf> sorry :'(
04:56:23 <elliott> the only Real Language is TECO
04:56:31 <shachaf> Fiora: or you can use esolangs
04:56:31 <Bike> you're not nearly swaggerly enough to be a Real Programmer, fiora. sorry.
04:56:33 <shachaf> like C++
04:56:41 <Sgeo> The only real language is @
04:56:44 <Fiora> I ama fake programmer then
04:56:48 <elliott> @ isn't real, Sgeo
04:56:54 <shachaf> @ is a joke
04:57:00 <elliott> you're a joke
04:57:03 <Bike> complex numbers joke here
04:57:03 <elliott> the list is a joke
04:57:05 <shachaf> your nick is a joke
04:57:07 <Sgeo> elliott, it is if I rotate it 90 degrees!
04:57:09 <elliott> fuck you
04:57:10 <Sgeo> Dammit Bike
04:57:13 * Fiora scribbles assembly opcodes on Bike's sleeve
04:57:21 <elliott> that's a bad place to put opcodes
04:57:24 <elliott> imo
04:57:33 <shachaf> Fiora: lets have a low level programming contest
04:57:38 <shachaf> Fiora: how many bytes do you know
04:57:41 <shachaf> i know over 300
04:57:49 <Bike> how big are these bytes
04:57:52 <shachaf> 8 bits
04:57:57 <Bike> hm
04:57:59 <shachaf> "<elliott> octets hth"
04:58:02 <Sgeo> What a boring answer.

05:02:23 <elliott> Sgeo: is the point just to annoy me or whatever
05:02:26 <Sgeo> :( sorry
05:02:27 <elliott> because shachaf already does that a lot better
05:02:31 <Sgeo> But that was a fake addquote
05:02:40 <Sgeo> I didn't think a fake addquote would be annoying
05:02:46 -!- Jafet has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
05:02:59 <shachaf> elliott: Hey, I thought I stopped the annoying thing!
05:03:08 -!- Jafet has joined.
05:03:44 <elliott> the real question: what is annoying
05:03:47 <kmc> @ ← snail
05:03:58 <elliott> @ is an anaconda that curled itself up
05:04:24 <Jafet> Is it related to python or ASP?
05:04:59 <elliott> @ isn't related to life
05:06:14 <shachaf> kmc: I don't have any backups.
05:06:19 <kmc> beyond 1984, beyond 2001, beyond love, beyond death: @
05:06:21 <shachaf> Should I get an external hard drive and back up to it?
05:06:46 <kmc> you should get an internal soft ride or front down from it
05:06:59 <kmc> that said, yes
05:07:05 <shachaf> kmc: You mean give?
05:07:21 <elliott> @ would make a pretty good novel IMO
05:07:21 <kmc> yeah
05:07:27 <shachaf> Should I get an external hard drive or an internal hard drive + a box to put a hard drive in?
05:08:25 <kmc> don't have a strong opinion
05:08:26 <shachaf> Hmm, prices have gone down to pre-flood levels.
05:08:30 <kmc> i usually do the latter
05:08:40 <kmc> but that's more because i have one or the other part lying around already
05:09:39 <shachaf> Maybe I should use my $50 Tarsnap credit.
05:15:16 <Fiora> "Maybe that clown could have helped you understand what you're supposed to do in this empty wasteland, but no, you had better ideas. And all of them were bullets." caliborning

05:35:42 <kmc> http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/00112432/
05:36:40 <elliott> kmc: what
05:38:13 <Gregor> kmc: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/10193197/
05:40:27 <Sgeo> What's so interesting about the pasta?
05:40:57 <Bike> it is elk-shaped, to remind you of home.
05:41:17 * Sgeo is currently eating pasta
05:41:20 <Sgeo> With ketchup
05:41:33 <kmc> Gregor: haha
05:41:37 <kmc> Sgeo: gross
05:41:56 <kmc> Gregor: it suggests i buy it with a "KOLON floor protector"
05:42:15 <Sgeo> There is no parmesan cheese. I require parmesan cheese. In the absense of parmesan cheese I use ketchup
05:42:22 <elliott>
05:42:26 <kmc> that is gross and terrible and bad and you should feel bad
05:43:01 <Gregor> ..........
05:43:04 <Sgeo> I actually tend to eat more when eating it with ketchup
05:43:13 <Gregor> “In the absense of parmesan cheese I use ketchup”
05:43:19 <Gregor> I…
05:43:23 <Bike> yeah how does that even make sense
05:43:25 <Sgeo> But mixing ketchup and parmesan cheese is gross, I've tried it.
05:43:29 <Bike> is ketchup a cheese now
05:43:44 <Sgeo> Bike, it's a foodstuff that adds some calories and nutrients.
05:43:48 <pikhq_> Gregor: Trust me, that's not just your fnarf.
05:43:56 <Sgeo> And makes it taste better.
05:43:57 <pikhq_> It tastes wrong too.
05:44:03 <Bike> I don't have any parmesan cheese, so in the absence of parmesan cheese I dump chocolate on it
05:44:25 <Sgeo> What's so bad about pasta+ketchup?
05:44:57 <Bike> as of vatican ii it's a valid basis for excommunication, for one
05:45:34 <kmc> as was set forth in the famous papal bull "De ketchup nongustabilis"
05:47:02 <Gregor> Sgeo: That seems like the kind of thing people would eat in the great depression.
05:47:10 <kmc> some heretic sects were using ketchup and pasta instead of wine and bread for the sacrament of the eucharist
05:48:08 <kmc> some friends of mine had a bet to see who could last the longest eating only free condiments from the uni dining hall
05:48:30 <shachaf> what's a condiment
05:48:51 <shachaf> "things like ketchup?"
05:49:11 <kmc> yeah
05:49:23 <ion> I hope Distance gets enough votes in Greenlight. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=103111305
05:49:27 <shachaf> That sounds disgusting.
05:49:41 <Sgeo> I think I like ketchup+pasta more than parmesan cheese+pasta, but parmesan cheese is probably healthier
05:54:14 <Sgeo> Normal people eat pasta + tomato sauce, right? What's the difference between tomato sauce and ketchup?
05:54:52 <pikhq_> Ketchup is spiced much differently, cooked to a different consistency, much more vinegary, and has lots of sugar.
05:55:52 <kmc> it's weird that i didn't notice how sweet ketchup is until someone pointed it out to me
05:55:55 <kmc> but damn
05:56:12 <kmc> it's vinegar syrup with a slight tomato theme
05:56:29 <pikhq_> It's a sweet and sour sauce.
05:56:43 <kmc> hm, i hadn't thought of that, but yes
05:56:44 <Sgeo> So that's good. I don't particularly like tomatos, except as part of pizza.
05:57:07 <kmc> Sgeo: seriously though, if you like it, eat it, don't let us tell you that it's gross even though it is
05:57:18 <kmc> taste is so arbitrary
05:57:26 <Bike> (it is still really gross though)
05:57:47 <Sgeo> When I get more parmesan cheese I'll start using that again
05:58:01 <Sgeo> Although parmesan cheese is really only really really good with shell-shaped pasta
05:58:12 <kmc> why is that
05:58:14 <kmc> disagree
05:58:18 <Sgeo> (There's a nostalgia factor at work here)
05:58:20 <kmc> oh
05:58:21 <kmc> right
05:58:33 <shachaf> kmc: you know what else is sweet?!
05:58:37 <shachaf> hint: balsamic vinegar
05:58:46 <shachaf> (with strawberries)
05:58:48 <shachaf> (but also without)
05:58:53 <Sgeo> In.. pre-k? Kindergarten? We had a bunch of foods with some themes and one of them was "sand and shells"
05:58:53 <shachaf> (the point is, balsamic vinegar)
05:58:58 <elliott> @quote q
05:58:58 <lambdabot> edwardk says: <edwardk> is there a haskell client for the quantum random bit generator service? <edwardk> i was joking that i tend to flip coins as to which project i work on that way at least in
05:58:58 <lambdabot> some universe there is probably a me working on the more interesting one, but it strikes me that it would be nicer to actually have that coin flip hinge on a simpler quantum event
05:59:04 <Sgeo> Later on, I had my mom make some for me, and I liked it
05:59:14 <Bike> is that thing still up?
05:59:17 <Sgeo> So, that's kind of how pasta+parmesan cheese became a staple food for me
05:59:35 <elliott> http://www.fourmilab.ch/hotbits/ apparently
06:00:20 <Bike> i wonder how many angry emails about what "random" _really_ means they get.
06:03:48 <zzo38> I prefer pasta with both tomato sauce and parmesan cheese.
06:13:30 <Sgeo> I finish more of my pasta when I put ketchup on it
06:13:40 <Sgeo> Don't know if that really means I prefer ketchup+pasta or not
06:14:17 <zzo38> I don't know.
06:17:27 <elliott> hey kmc should i go to sleep
06:17:55 <lambdabot> kmc says: no elliott dont do it
06:18:02 <elliott> thats not kmc
06:18:14 <lambdabot> kmc says: im kmc
06:18:59 <elliott> no
06:20:38 <Sgeo> Sleep is as optional as food.
06:20:51 <Sgeo> (For some reason, you saying "Food is not optional" is stuck in my mind)

06:25:28 <lambdabot> 139d384 => 30003
06:26:35 <zzo38> I have played Dungeons&Dragons game today. I am recording it at this time.
06:28:04 <elliott> thanks
06:30:04 <zzo38> Are you weird in general?
06:39:02 <elliott> thanks
06:39:23 <zzo38> Thanks for what?
06:40:15 <elliott> that's the question
06:43:46 <zzo38> Some audio chips interleave the channel output instead of mixed. There are also some with nonlinear mixing. Such thing may be use in musics made with Csound and so on for special effects?
07:04:04 <zzo38> Another special effect I may want to use is posterize, and perhaps, solarize. These thing could be done probably with UDO or with plugins.
07:05:13 <zzo38> Could be any musics with Proce esolang?
07:24:03 <FireFly> I'm wearing the same shirt ANdy is. I feel 300 times more awesome now.
07:24:09 <FireFly> er

07:25:49 <FireFly> I've no clue

07:26:20 <FireFly> I don't remember, but not *that* long, I don't think
07:26:23 <elliott> ages
07:27:24 <FireFly> My first edit on the wiki was 19 dec 2008

07:28:37 <fizzie> [2009-01-10 23:41:13] ... FireFly [n=FireFly@1-1-3-36a.tul.sth.bostream.se] has joined #esoteric
07:28:45 <fizzie> (Though my logs do have gaps.)
07:29:19 <shachaf> when was my first join
07:29:25 <shachaf> was it: 2012
07:29:29 <shachaf> nov
07:29:30 <shachaf> 18
07:29:32 <FireFly> That's hardly long compared to the age of the channel though
07:29:48 <shachaf> hardly long compared to the age of the UNIVERSE!!!!!!
07:29:56 <FireFly> That's also true
07:29:57 <shachaf> elliott: "oops i just got FireFly"

07:30:41 <shachaf> whoa dude really
07:30:52 <shachaf> FireFly: HOW'S THAT, huh
07:31:36 <fizzie> Then you did not say anything and disappeared at some point during June 2008, since there are no more mentions pre-2011-01-04.
07:32:45 <shachaf> Really?
07:35:06 <fizzie> That's what my logs look like, at least.
07:35:14 <fizzie> Or, wait, I had a | head in there.
07:35:38 <fizzie> Well, that explains why it ended so abruptly.
07:36:10 <elliott> did shachaf say things in 2008
07:36:10 <fizzie> Even without the | head I don't see any actual comments.

08:10:52 <shachaf> or grey
08:10:57 <shachaf> "this is important"
08:11:44 <zzo38> No. I wrote it in "level20.tex" file recording this Dungeons&Dragons game, and I found out, it is purple.
08:12:00 <zzo38> Not because the king said so, but because the royal wizard said so.
08:12:14 <fizzie> "256 shades of gray", a book about the encoding of grayscale JPEG images.
08:12:36 <shachaf> zzo38: are you the royal wizard
08:12:38 <zzo38> In order to confirm, if it is who it says it is, when I used a psychic communication link, but he doesn't know me so we have to ask wizard in that way.

08:23:29 <elliott> *years
08:23:40 <shachaf> elliott: btw i've never been `welcomed
08:23:45 <shachaf> imo elliott should `welcome me
08:23:57 <elliott> no i think the current state of shachaf never having been `welcomed is perfect
08:24:10 <oklofok> how mean
08:24:15 <shachaf> all in favour say `eye`
08:24:42 <shachaf> monqy: should elliott welcome me

08:25:49 <shachaf> not sure about the second
08:26:06 <monqy> there are 2 more but "i'm sure you can figure them out"
08:26:35 <shachaf> monqy: you forgot one

08:27:55 <monqy> it is too many and overwhelming :'(
08:27:59 <shachaf> Note: No one else is figuring it out either.

08:28:15 <elliott> shachaf is just trying to get you to do work for free
08:28:23 <Fiora> really I don't think I'd have any hope here, I haven't used the language in like 2 years ^^;;
08:28:26 <shachaf> Fiora: ill pay you in eternal gratitude
08:28:27 <monqy> btw is Fiora on Sgeo's list yet
08:28:38 <Fiora> I think I am?
08:28:40 <shachaf> Fiora: You want eternal gratitude, right?
08:28:41 <monqy> good good
08:28:56 <shachaf> (Eternal gratitude expires in 12 months unless you earn more gratitude.)
08:29:29 <shachaf> (earning my gratitude is easy!)
08:29:33 <shachaf> Fiora: "imo say yes"
08:29:57 <FireFly> What is Sgeo's list?
08:30:08 <shachaf> Fiora: did you know this channel evaluates haskell
08:30:19 <elliott> monqy: sgeo explained the list to fiora.
08:30:19 <shachaf> > let fibs = 1 : 1 : zipWith (+) fibs (tail fibs)
08:30:21 <elliott> all the mystery is gone

08:32:23 <elliott> tat yourself
08:32:32 <shachaf> plz yourself
08:33:49 <Fiora> shachaf: um, I think I saw people using it like that earlier
08:34:37 <shachaf> Fiora: um, ok
08:34:50 <Fiora> I don't think I can solve haskell puzzles though especially if nobody else can
08:36:40 <monqy> it's not a puzzle it's just a stupid thing shachaf asks people to do and we ignore him
08:36:55 <monqy> im sure it's interesting if you're into that sort of stuff but
08:37:06 <monqy> i dont really feel like lenses right now. i feel like Lens
08:37:28 <Sgeo> shachaf, does it have to be in Haskell?
08:37:31 <Sgeo> :innocentface:
08:37:47 <shachaf> Sgeo: If you can manage to solve it not in Haskell, I'll be surprised.
08:37:51 <shachaf> It has to do with types and things.
08:39:15 <elliott> but clojure is the perfect language of the month now
08:39:16 <elliott> or was it tcl
08:39:42 <elliott> truly a perfect langauge is like a computable set of axioms that uniquely defines the natural numbers
08:39:47 <elliott> it ain't exist

10:58:12 <monqy> like a year!!!! but a bit less than that
10:58:24 <shachaf> monqy: like 11 months
10:58:26 <shachaf> 10 months
10:58:26 <oklofok> Phantom_Hoover: are programs pdfs
10:58:27 <shachaf> 9 months
10:58:29 <shachaf> 8 months
10:58:30 <Phantom_Hoover> oklofok, yes
10:58:31 <shachaf> 7 months
10:58:33 <shachaf> 6 months
10:58:33 <oklofok> or latex
10:58:35 <shachaf> 5 months
10:58:37 <shachaf> 4 months
10:58:39 <Phantom_Hoover> they're written in latex
10:58:40 <shachaf> 3 months
10:58:42 <shachaf> 2 months
10:58:42 <oklofok> but preferably compiled latex yeah
10:58:45 <shachaf> 1 months

10:59:05 <monqy> shachaf: one of those
10:59:33 <shachaf> monqy: remember the part with the turtle
10:59:37 <monqy> yeah
10:59:42 <shachaf> i loved that turtle
10:59:45 <oklofok> now, the question is can be publish a math paper that's actually a fuck your mathbrain -fuck program that prints counterexamples to all the theorems.
10:59:50 <oklofok> *we
11:00:44 <oklofok> elliott: chris
11:00:47 <oklofok> presto
11:00:47 <oklofok> is
11:00:49 <oklofok> what?
11:00:53 <elliott> chris pressey but different
11:00:54 <elliott> hth
11:00:54 <oklofok> i found cpresto1.
11:00:59 <Phantom_Hoover> im interested in doing proper math in fuckbrainmath
11:01:12 <oklofok> muchfrainbath
11:01:21 <oklofok> *muckfrainbath
11:01:27 <elliott> oklofok: answer to that question: no. since your theorems have counterexamples, peer review would be sure to find the errors in your proofs
11:01:30 <elliott> oklofok: (hahahahahaha)
11:01:42 <elliott> getting good at this joke thing
11:02:04 <oklofok> yeah that's a good one :d
11:02:09 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, oh is that because of goedels incompleteness theorems
11:02:44 <Phantom_Hoover> i read geodel esher bahc, it was very inspiring
11:02:46 <oklofok> no it's because of the corollary that humans are superturing because they can do metamath so they can check every proof.
11:03:09 <Phantom_Hoover> superturing hahaha
11:03:18 <Phantom_Hoover> like superman for math
11:03:28 <oklofok> superturing to the rescue
11:03:29 <Phantom_Hoover> (If only he had a theme tune..._
11:04:37 <Phantom_Hoover> so will you write some theorems in brathmuck
11:05:03 <Phantom_Hoover> i was thinking, it would be cool if someone used it to prove fermats' last theorem?
11:05:13 <monqy> yes
11:05:25 <shachaf> i love that theorem!!!!!
11:05:30 <shachaf> "second favorite theorem"
11:05:52 <Phantom_Hoover> omg is your favourite gedoels incompleteness theorem??
11:05:56 <Phantom_Hoover> because mine is!
11:06:13 <oklofok> my favorite theorem is perhaps that a countable 2d sft contains a strictly singly periodic point
11:06:16 <shachaf> Phantom_Hoover: no
11:06:19 <shachaf> my favorite theorem is that
11:06:53 <shachaf> there is no computable set of axioms in first-order logic that uniquely defines the natural numbers
11:06:59 <shachaf> "pretty cool huh"
11:07:04 <Phantom_Hoover> oh
11:07:08 <oklofok> (and it's not even my theorem)
11:07:15 <Phantom_Hoover> can you prove that in muckbraiath
11:07:18 <oklofok> (it's awesome)
11:07:25 <monqy> my favorite theorem is the one where There is no set whose cardinality is strictly between that of the integers and that of the real numbers.

19:24:50 <atriq> Hey, I missed the lesson, can anyone tell me the background to the k e^(i * theta) way of expressing a complex number?
19:25:48 <olsner> probably something about euler
19:26:58 <kmc> so you know about polar coordinates for the plane, right?
19:27:15 <FreeFull> So I wrote a C program that quits with a Bus Error when given the input of -1
19:27:41 <kmc> and complex numbers x + yi can be thought of as a point in the plane
19:28:34 <kmc> if you convert that (x,y) to (r,θ) you can represent the number as r(cos(θ) + i sin(θ))
19:28:59 <kmc> and it so happens that cos(θ) + i sin(θ) = e^(i θ)
19:29:21 <kmc> which you can demonstrate by working out the respective power series, i think
19:29:36 <atriq> kmc, you've skipped over the one part I didn't know
19:30:05 <kmc> which is?
19:30:22 <olsner> "what are complex numbers"
19:30:26 <atriq> How to get from cos theta + i sin theta to e ^ (i theta)
19:31:06 <FireFly> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler%27s_formula
19:31:21 <atriq> Thanks, FireFly
19:31:49 <kmc> yes you can prove it using power series
19:32:21 <kmc> you write the power series for e^(iθ) and then shuffle the terms around and pull out a power series for cos(θ) plus one for i sin(θ)
19:32:24 <kmc> i did mention that ;)
19:33:38 <FireFly> I recall I found it informative to plot z and sqrt(z), in the complex plane for some z on the edge of the unit circle
19:33:45 <FireFly> or z and z² for that matter
19:33:58 <kmc> i like this "using calculus" proof as well
19:34:41 <olsner> "using calculus", is that where you just use euler's formula?
19:34:46 <kmc> heh
19:34:57 <kmc> no that we call proof by induction
19:36:08 <olsner> oh, "Neither of these mathematicians saw the geometrical interpretation of the formula: the view of complex numbers as points in the complex plane arose only some 50 years later (see Caspar Wessel)."
19:40:52 <atriq> Thinking about it, I think I can get it from Maclaurin series
19:42:08 <atriq> Although is that overkill?
19:43:12 <olsner> I think that's one of the standard ways to do it
19:43:35 <olsner> or the taylor series, don't remember what the difference between those are
19:43:45 <atriq> Maclaurin is Taylor at 0
19:44:46 <atriq> Taylor at a is f(a) + f'(a)*(x-a)/1! + f''(a)*(x-a)^2/2! ...

19:58:47 <atriq> quintopia, yes, but not for e, sin, and cos?
19:59:00 <Bike> e sin and cos are holomorphic, so yeah they converge.
20:00:34 <Fiora> what sort of function wouldn't converge?
20:00:53 <Fiora> oh, something that isn't differentiable everywhere?
20:01:04 <atriq> ln (1 + x) for x > 1
20:01:24 <Fiora> "A function that is equal to its Taylor series in an open interval (or a disc in the complex plane) is known as an analytic function."
20:01:27 <Bike> well, you can also have functions that are differentiable everywhere that aren't holomorphic.
20:01:32 <Bike> http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/7/3/4/734173a08dcfe45fcff058190d4ec0a1.png Wikipedia has an example.
20:01:47 <Bike> er, it's infinitely differentiable at 0, anyhow.
20:02:23 <Fiora> wait, so why doesn't that one work?
20:02:37 <Bike> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-analytic_smooth_function oh, here we go.
20:02:53 <Bike> because the maclaurin series of it is 0
20:03:35 <Fiora> ohhhh. it's because at zero the taylor series converges to zero...
20:03:42 <Fiora> that's tricky
20:03:54 <Bike> yeah, they're usually kind of pathological.

21:14:10 <atriq> Nevermind
21:18:24 <oklopol> i think pathological may be slightly too strong a word
21:19:37 <oerjan> pathologically logical paths
21:25:21 <atriq> oklopol, context?
21:26:19 <Bike> my saying smooth but non-analytic functions are "kind of pathological"
21:29:34 <oklopol> isn't an analytic function from R completely determined by its values on any open set?
21:30:50 <Bike> I thought that only worked in C.
21:31:04 <Fiora> isn't R a subset of C, or...?
21:31:47 <oklopol> well if it's given by a converging series, it seems that you can determine the coefficients by taking derivatives at 0.
21:33:13 <Fiora> there's the issue of functions like the one Bike mentioned though, right? which are analytic but not homomorphic
21:33:23 <oklopol> homomorphic?
21:33:25 <oklopol> idgi
21:33:29 <oklopol> to what
21:33:40 <Bike> she means holomorphic.
21:33:49 <oklopol> oh holo
21:33:54 <oklopol> i think i've heard of that
21:34:05 <Bike> it's a synonym for "analytic", usually.
21:34:25 <oklopol> i don't get how being holomorphic has anything to do with this
21:34:27 <Fiora> erm, yeah
21:34:36 <Fiora> homomorphic was the condition for whether a taylor series works I think Bike said?
21:34:49 <Fiora> which I think is the same thing as "you can figure it all out from derivatives at one place"
21:35:08 <oklopol> anyhow the reason i think pathological is a bit of a strong word is that if an open set determines an analytic function, pretty much every smooth function you come up with will be non-analytic.
21:35:09 <Bike> well, complex analytic functions are holomorphic, but real analytic functions aren't necessarily, I think.
21:35:35 <oklopol> unless you just directly take some function with a name. they usually have a name because they have nice series representations.
21:35:49 <Bike> oklopol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pathological_function#Pathological_functions poincaré is more what I mean
21:36:15 <oklopol> that is somewhat pathological
21:36:18 <Bike> so, yeah, that. most functions are non-analytic and smooth probably, but they're still subjectively weird
21:36:20 <Fiora> oh god that function
21:36:24 <oklopol> the example of an analytic non-smooth function was not.
21:36:47 <oklopol> well i guess that may be a bit subjective
21:36:57 <oklopol> i was thinking of exactly the weierstrass function for comparison btw
21:36:59 <oklopol> :P
21:37:04 <Bike> go figure
21:37:57 <oklopol> also saying "most" here is a bit dangerous since often "a measure one subset of" B will be non-A where A is a subset of B, but actually it's very hard to find an element in B \ A.
21:38:14 <Bike> i suppose I could come up with a more rigorous "pathological" based on only allowing compositions of standard functions or something, but that'd be pretty pointless and I'm not good enough at real analysis to know what I'm saying anyway
21:38:38 <Fiora> and I haven't done analysis stuff like this in... gosh too many years <_>
21:38:59 <oklopol> i took a few analysis courses like 4 years ago
21:40:00 <oklopol> "so we have these couple of functions that interested ancient mathematicians and are useful in all sortsa fields but we already know everything about them so you students can just fuck yourselves and listen."
21:40:10 <Bike> :/
21:40:16 <oklopol> not my thing.

21:45:42 <oklopol> ooh that looks neat.
21:45:53 <Bike> it does
21:46:12 <Bike> unfortunately i'm pretty bad at both so combining them is hazardous for me
