00:00:08 <Phantom_Hoover> i am an idiot so i did it that way
00:00:42 <Phantom_Hoover> the build instructions that come with it should be enough
00:01:12 <Phantom_Hoover> dfhack itself is just a wrapper executable; you run it from a terminal, it launches df and gives you a command line
00:02:15 -!- Gregor has set topic: Nope. | http://codu.org/logs/_esoteric/.
00:03:02 <elliott> mmm
00:03:19 <oerjan> succinct.
00:04:27 -!- nooodl has joined.
00:04:40 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, any luck?
00:06:20 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: well I didn't start yet!!
00:07:13 -!- nooodl_ has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
00:12:15 <Phantom_Hoover> wow
00:12:35 <Phantom_Hoover> dfhack has a command to instantly double the population of cats
00:12:46 <Phantom_Hoover> watching large-scale kitten dynamics is quite fascinating
00:13:07 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: Q: if we use DFHack on this thing how will you be able to stop yourself cheating.
00:13:13 <elliott> You have to earn your cats, man.
00:13:55 <Phantom_Hoover> it's a legitimate point
00:13:57 -!- Gregor has set topic: Large-scale kitten dynamics | http://codu.org/logs/_esoteric/.
00:14:22 <Phantom_Hoover> i think i can stop myself using the big ones, like prospect all or reveal
00:14:42 <Phantom_Hoover> but there are some lesser ways of cutting corners that are kind of fuzzy
00:16:33 <elliott> didn't you use prospecting on that other fort we had
00:17:45 <Phantom_Hoover> yeah
00:17:57 <elliott> how can I trust you Phantom_Hoover...
00:18:01 <Phantom_Hoover> but since then i've become more patient!
00:18:09 <Phantom_Hoover> also i talked you into it, it was your fault too!
00:18:15 <Phantom_Hoover> man
00:18:24 <elliott> what if you ran dfhack by doing ./dfhack & disown and closing the terminal so you can't use the console
00:18:29 <elliott> would you be able to restrain yourself???
00:18:50 <Phantom_Hoover> no because dgvx is too damn useful

00:19:20 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover................
00:19:35 <Phantom_Hoover> uh
00:19:45 <Phantom_Hoover> vein digging is on toady's to-do list
00:19:54 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover................
00:20:05 <Phantom_Hoover> oh come on
00:20:28 <elliott> P h a n t o m _ H o o v e r . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
00:20:58 <Phantom_Hoover> anyway, who'd have thought kittens would have a survival rate of nearly 33% when dropped 13 z-levels onto a rough cave floor
00:21:00 <olsner> vein digging sounds somewhat unpleasant
00:21:29 <Phantom_Hoover> monqy unfortunately has a survival rate of 0%
00:22:42 <Phantom_Hoover> monqy died as he lived, in a pile of dead kittens and vomit
00:22:59 <monqy> that doesn't sound anything like me
00:32:09 <oerjan> good, good

00:48:56 <Arc_Koen> so they have this game where someone draws and the other try to guess

00:49:14 <Arc_Koen> with a man in the cockpit, and an arrow to that man
00:49:27 <Arc_Koen> and I was like, "How do they call a man that pilots a plane??"
00:49:43 <oerjan> silly french

03:01:06 <MiJyn> hey, just wondering... do people talk about esoteric languages here?
03:01:18 <shachaf> Rarely.
03:01:46 <Gregor> In principle X-D
03:02:02 <elliott> MiJyn: hahahahahahhaahahahahahaha
03:02:05 <elliott> haahah
03:02:26 <elliott> ha ha ha ha hah hah ahhaha ha
03:04:43 <Arc_Koen> hello MiJyn
03:04:49 <kmc> shachaf: it's actually pretty hard to draw the line between defensive coding and cargo cult coding, sometimes
03:04:54 <kmc> at least without knowing the mental state of the author
03:05:12 <shachaf> kmc: For the Django thing?
03:05:18 <kmc> that's an example, yeah
03:05:21 <pikhq> MiJyn: That is the intent.
03:05:43 <Arc_Koen> MiJyn: I believe elliott's "laughs" were actually programs or parts of a program in some esoteric language
03:05:43 <kmc> in theory, if os.urandom() completely fails you, then hashing in the email address gives you a little more entropy
03:05:54 <elliott> no i was laughing
03:06:00 <kmc> but it's not worth much at all
03:06:14 <kmc> because an attacker who is trying to forge a signup knows what the email address is
03:06:35 <kmc> i think it's more like OpenSSL tossing the PID into the entropy pool
03:06:46 <kmc> enough to obscure when the other parts are broken (Debian) but not enough to actually protect anything

03:41:55 <MiJyn> hey
03:42:05 <MiJyn> if someone didn't make a language like that...
03:42:12 <MiJyn> would be fun to make something like an "ook" variant :P
03:42:29 <MiJyn> you know, like ha hah would be +, hah ha would be -, etc.. xD

03:43:40 <elliott> no i was just laughing

03:43:52 <quintopia> let's all laugh at elliott
03:43:58 <MiJyn> lol
03:44:28 <quintopia> haha elliott what a lol
03:44:43 <quintopia> i made a language
03:44:50 <quintopia> where "haha elliott what a lol" is a program
03:45:00 <quintopia> that outputs a joke of which elliott is the butt
03:45:12 <quintopia> i'll whisper you the URL to the interpreter
03:45:18 <quintopia> it's the best joke
03:47:34 <MiJyn> lol
03:48:15 <MiJyn> I'm actually halfway serious... I'm trying to write a full BF compiler with support for as many dialects as possible (currently supports BF, Ook, Blub, Pbrain, and Brainlove), and it would be fun to make one for it :P
03:48:53 <Bike> i have it on good authority that snipers are in place here to intercept talk of new brainfuck dialects.
03:49:29 <MiJyn> lol
03:49:41 <MiJyn> amazing how many BF dialects there are :P
03:50:01 <MiJyn> it's like as if anyone who makes an esoteric language HAS to make a BF dialect :P
03:50:09 <Bike> that's because all you have to do is come up with eight symbols that map to bf's.
03:50:54 <MiJyn> yeah, no thinking envolved
03:53:31 <MiJyn> still fun to make a compiler though :P
03:53:49 <kmc> it's a corollary of wadler's law
03:53:53 <kmc> people are obsessed with concrete syntax
03:54:08 <kmc> they'd much rather invent new concrete syntax for an existing language than come up with actually novel semantics
03:54:20 <kmc> it's the same with perl/python/php/ruby/javascript/lua/...
03:54:41 <MiJyn> really? I think that it's just that people aren't creative enough to figure out new languages
03:55:01 <MiJyn> so instead they just write meta-programming languages that compile to others
03:55:07 <MiJyn> I guess I'm guilty of that :/
03:55:40 <Bike> i'm not sure "metaprogramming" means what you just used it as
03:56:15 <MiJyn> sorry, wrong word :(
03:56:32 <kmc> whether a language compiles to another language is not a property of the language but of the compiler
03:57:17 <MiJyn> I think you know what I mean though (something like groovy or scheme)
03:57:30 <kmc> i don't, no
03:57:40 <kmc> you just named two random languages for all i can tell
03:57:45 <Bike> can't say I do, since none of the first implementations of any of the languages kmc listed to any with similar semantics, far as I know
03:57:53 <Bike> *compiled to any
03:58:13 <monqy> have you ever heard of "cat"
03:58:22 <MiJyn> kmc, they are both based on Java
03:58:26 <kmc> what?
03:58:27 <kmc> no
03:58:31 <Bike> Cats are nice. I like cats.
03:58:32 <MiJyn> both are just interfaces to java
03:58:32 <kmc> scheme has nothing to do with java
03:58:42 <Bike> interfaces, hahaha.
03:58:48 <kmc> groovy is typically implemented by compiling to JVM
03:58:53 <kmc> but you can also compile python, ruby, or javascript to JVM
03:58:54 <MiJyn> UGH, I CANT TYPE TODAY!
03:59:08 <kmc> it's not a property of the language
03:59:20 <kmc> and JVM != Java
03:59:22 <kmc> so basically
03:59:25 <kmc> what you are saying makes no sense
03:59:26 <MiJyn> yeah, I can't remember the name of that S language (which is apparently quite popular), and "compiles" to Java
03:59:32 <shachaf> kmc: Any VM you compile Java to will be a JVM.
03:59:33 <kmc> they don't compile to java
03:59:33 <shachaf> qed
03:59:36 <Bike> doesn't matter, the point is what it compiles to doesn't matter
03:59:43 <MiJyn> kmc, oh really? I thought they did
03:59:54 <kmc> you can make a language vastly different from Java and compile it to the same virtual machine
03:59:56 <Bike> also i don't understand why people identify languages and implementations so strongly, it's so weird. it's not like there aren't a billion implementations of popular languages like C
04:00:13 <kmc> D and Haskell are very different languages and yet we compile them both to this virtual machine called x86 processor
04:00:14 <monqy> Sgeo__: be sure to tell MiJyn about "clojure" sometime
04:00:26 <kmc> monqy: actually i'm not sure Sgeo__ has heard of clojure
04:00:46 <monqy> that won't stop him from talking about it
04:01:14 <MiJyn> Bike, I think C was not the best example... it seems like as if each popular language is based on C
04:01:26 <Bike> how the hell do you figure that
04:01:40 <MiJyn> ?
04:01:43 <Bike> other than, again, using lots of syntactic things like {}.
04:01:47 <shachaf> monqy: What's "clojure"?
04:01:58 <monqy> ask Sgeo__
04:02:11 <shachaf> monqy: I want it in your own words!
04:02:17 <monqy> "ask Sgeo__"
04:02:27 <shachaf> Thanks.
04:02:46 <MiJyn> Bike, yeah, syntax is based onC
04:02:48 <MiJyn> *on c
04:03:01 <kmc> syntax is the least interesting part of a language design
04:03:03 <Bike> yes but the point is, who cares about that
04:03:14 <kmc> yet it's the part most people fixate on
04:03:25 <Bike> other than those poor people who embroil themselves in arguments about python tabulation and such, i guess
04:03:26 <kmc> it's easy to have opinions about syntax and they can't be "right" or "wrong"
04:03:43 <kmc> it's hard to have opinions about semantics because then you have to understand, like, math and computer science and stuff
04:03:54 <kmc> and you might say something factually incorrect
04:04:02 <Bike> gosh, that sounds hard
04:04:02 <kmc> as designers of popular languages tend to do on a regular basis
04:20:33 <kmc> i'm not bitter at all
04:20:48 <Bike> it shows
04:21:09 <kmc> i'm glad
04:21:42 <kmc> seriously though, rants aside, being a programmer is really really great
04:22:04 <shachaf> kmc is just trying to run through an entire lifetime's supply of bitterness in a few years.
04:22:19 <Bike> i've tried that, it doesn't really work out well
04:22:22 <kmc> and then i'll die :(
04:27:11 <MiJyn> @kmc, don't worry, you have a couple lifetime's supply of bitterness :P

04:44:30 -!- jfischoff has quit (Quit: jfischoff).
04:44:44 <kmc> ah
04:44:53 <kmc> you can set the TZ environment variable
04:45:02 <elliott> oh i guess in retrospect that is kind of obvious
04:45:07 <kmc> TZ=Europe/Moscow date
04:45:18 <elliott> is there a "sanctioned" way to set that globally for an account
04:46:06 <elliott> kmc: by the way I blame you for the fact that I had to come up with "mosh solidity -- dtach -A ~/.irssi/socket irssi"
04:47:10 <kmc> wuh
04:47:41 <kmc> elliott: typically just put it in ~/.bash_profile
04:48:06 <kmc> export TZ=America/Jerkcity
04:48:07 <elliott> mmm
04:48:19 <elliott> does that work if I am e.g. executing a command with mosh though!! it won't run that will it
04:48:28 <kmc> no it will run .bashrc instead
04:48:43 <kmc> my .bash_profile is the one line "source ~/.bashrc"
04:48:48 <kmc> and then i put all the real meaty business in ~/.bashrc
04:49:02 <kmc> ^---- pro tip
04:49:41 <elliott> why would it run .bashrc anyway
04:51:15 <kmc> well mosh uses ssh to launch a mosh-server
04:51:29 <kmc> and ssh invokes a shell on the remote host to parse the command line
04:51:59 <kmc> you can see this with e.g. ssh foo 'echo $HOSTNAME'
04:52:12 <kmc> so mosh-server inherits the environment from that interactive, non-login shell
04:52:32 <elliott> mmm
04:52:34 <elliott> fair enough then
04:52:38 <shachaf> The remote shell is interactive?
04:53:28 <kmc> think so
04:53:35 <elliott> kmc: looks like debian's default ~/.profile just runs ~/.bashrc too
04:53:38 <elliott> more or less
04:53:42 <kmc> hmm no
04:54:00 <kmc> ssh localhost 'echo $-' # does not show 'i'
04:54:24 <elliott> # If not running interactively, don't do anything
04:54:25 <elliott> [ -z "$PS1" ] && return
04:54:25 <kmc> somehow it does read ~/.bashrc though
04:54:35 <elliott> so mosh will not read my bashrc as-is?
04:54:37 <elliott> because of that
04:54:38 <kmc> all confusing
04:54:40 <kmc> maybe
04:54:48 <kmc> just try it \o/

15:28:24 <kmc> and there's a corresponding variant of UTF-8
15:28:48 <shachaf> Hmm, I didn't hear about that.
15:29:38 <elliott> fizzie: I bet *you* know about irssi theming.
15:29:58 <elliott> kmc: UCS is restricted to Unicode size now I think?
15:30:00 <elliott> Along with UTF.
15:32:21 <kmc> maybe so
15:32:43 <elliott> fizzie: So about that irssi theming??
15:32:53 <kmc> https://blogs.oracle.com/ksplice/entry/the_1st_international_longest_tweet
15:33:12 <elliott> fizzie: Alternatively irssi logging. Is there a way to log ANSI colour codes without having it, like, actually log the ANSI colour codes in my theme?
15:35:41 <fizzie> I've dabbled a very small bit with the theming.
15:36:15 <elliott> fizzie: Do you know how I would, say, change the formatting of the timestamps when it replays the awaylog?
15:36:43 <elliott> My normal timestamps are greyed out and have a space between them and the <nick> but in the awaylog they're normally-coloured and bashed right up against the nick, it is not very nice.
15:36:49 <elliott> And irssi themes seem to be completely undocumented.
15:37:31 <fizzie> It seems to be rather crummy, really. Most of it is in the format strings that you can see with /format but there's also the templates ("abstract"s) used in those that are only in the theme files.
15:38:17 <elliott> Something about ad-hoc.
15:39:15 <fizzie> As a guess I think changing the "timestamp" abstract style should affect all timestamps as long as all /formats actually use it.
15:39:38 <fizzie> But it's all undocumented, that's also true.
15:40:14 <elliott> fizzie: Well what I have formats = { "fe-common/core" = { timestamp = "%K{timestamp $Z} %n"; }; };is:
15:40:17 <elliott> Er.
15:40:18 <elliott> Rearrange that sentence.
15:40:27 <elliott> It seems to work for everything but the awaylog.
15:40:53 <fizzie> Well, there's also /set log_timestamp.
15:41:04 <fizzie> It's a setting, not a format.
15:41:09 <fizzie> (Of course.)
15:41:37 <elliott> fizzie: Yeees, but if I set that won't it affect my Actual Logs too? This is just the awaylog thing that irssi keeps for when I'm away and replays automatically.
15:41:53 <elliott> I think putting formatting codes in that would make me feel really silly. And then make me ask that logging question again.
15:42:15 <fizzie> It will, but if they both use the same thing and the replay is just a cat-file-on-screen...
15:42:59 <elliott> fizzie: Is that actually a thing?
15:43:01 <elliott> I really hope it isn't.
15:43:13 <fizzie> I don't use the awaylog, I don't really know.
15:43:16 <elliott> I mean, people who keep the default "ANSI colours in logs" setting off don't get a completely unthemed awaylog, surely.
15:44:07 <fizzie> There's awaylog_colors, awaylog_file and awaylog_level.
15:44:28 <fizzie> It could well be using the logging framewurk even if it's slightly different.

16:34:46 <elliott> Deewiant: :(
16:34:54 <elliott> How about -128,-512,-16 to 128,512,16?
16:35:06 <Deewiant> I don't want it to be too huge :-P
16:35:10 <elliott> Come on.
16:35:19 <elliott> I'll write a funge benchmark that specifically goes just outside your bounds.
16:35:20 <Deewiant> The point is to fit most source code in it, plus a bit of padding

16:36:14 <Deewiant> (See: nothing is still near to being finished)
16:36:20 <Deewiant> Maybe there should be
16:36:22 <elliott> How many will you have
16:36:28 <Deewiant> I don't know
16:36:47 <elliott> Surely it's tons. Don't tell me good algorithms and data structures can beat micro-optimised naive algorithms.
16:36:50 <Deewiant> If I can get a difference with 95% confidence according to ministat by adding some then I will add some, otherwise I won't
16:36:52 <elliott> That's just silly.

18:41:23 <elliott> Deewiant: "katsosieni". You see, it's like "cfunge"...

18:42:12 <Deewiant> elliott: It should be "näesieni" unless you want it to mean "look, a mushroom"
18:42:46 <Deewiant> elliott: Which of the existing funge interpreter names do you like, anyway?
18:43:22 <elliott> Deewiant: Um... Shiro.
18:43:32 <elliott> I think there was that C++ one I liked the name of? But I forget its name.
18:43:44 <Deewiant> Stinkhorn?
18:43:49 <elliott> Hmm.
18:43:54 <elliott> I must have remembered it as having a better name than it does.
18:44:10 <Deewiant> Where does Shiro get its name from anyway
18:44:17 <Deewiant> (I may have asked this before)
18:44:27 <elliott> "Shiro, a special kind of mycelia
18:44:29 <elliott> "
18:44:46 <elliott> How to name a Funge thing: Go on Wikipedia -> Look at something about fungi -> Pick a word that looks nice
18:44:53 <elliott> "Mycelium (plural mycelia) is the vegetative part of a fungus, consisting of a mass of branching, thread-like hyphae. The mass of hyphae is sometimes called shiro, especially within the fairy ring fungi."
18:46:50 <Deewiant> I think I'll call it "rice rotten neck"
18:47:14 <elliott> perfect
18:47:43 <elliott> I generally prefer names that don't really mean much (but have some sort of relation to the thing) but sound nice.
18:47:57 <elliott> Either that or uber-generic names when I can't be bothered to care.
18:48:25 <Deewiant> I try to prefer names that have a sensible relation to the thing
18:48:41 <Deewiant> In some abstract sense, at least
18:48:45 <elliott> Well, sure.
18:49:00 <elliott> I just mean I wouldn't name an interpreter something with "funge" in it unless I was doing it under the Too Lazy To Care clause.
18:49:01 <Deewiant> So if e.g. Funge programs are fungi then interpreters would have to be things that do something with fungi
18:49:10 <Deewiant> Or verbs or something
18:49:23 <kmc> mushroom reproduction is crazy
18:49:44 <kmc> the fruiting body of the mushroom produces spores, which grow into haploid mycelia
18:50:11 <kmc> if two mycelia of compatible types meet, they kinda fuse together
18:50:18 <kmc> and produce cells with two nuclei each
18:50:30 <kmc> the types are a bit like sexes then, but i think there can be more than two
18:50:57 <kmc> also in this sense they can self-fertilize like some plants
18:51:36 <kmc> currently trying to grow oyster mushrooms at home
18:52:34 <Phantom_Hoover> fungi are crazy in general

19:04:47 <fizzie> Ah, flashblock.

19:05:13 <fizzie> Yeah, sounds good enough.
19:05:58 <Deewiant> I'd say the only thing wrong with it is that it has strangely long pauses between syllables.
19:06:00 <elliott> Deewiant: OK, throwin' my vote in for some variant of "jakala".
19:06:04 <fizzie> I called the static analysis tool that did the fungot flowgraph for me "mycena", don't quite remember why. It had something to do with the fact that lots of those are bioluminescent.
19:06:05 <fungot> fizzie: is that: an environment is a module, change that module, and i had the first real personal shoes?
19:06:17 <elliott> (This is a vote, right?)

19:06:47 <Deewiant> elliott: No, it's a dictatorship. I don't like "jakala" and I'm not going to have a non-ASCII binary name. :-P

19:07:16 <Deewiant> That's ASCII and thus completely acceptable.

19:09:23 <fizzie> There used to be some amount of fishing-themed terminology in use for BBS file-shering. MikroBitti called their file area "apaja", meaning (approximately) a place for fishing etc., and the files themselves were fish.
19:10:00 <fizzie> elliott: If you lowercase the Concurrent, it's "Vaatimustenmukaiset samanaikaisesti Befunge-98 Tulkki".
19:10:30 <elliott> fizzie: I decided to leave it broken as-is.
19:10:43 <fizzie> Is it abbreviated VCBT then?

19:18:13 <Deewiant> fizzie: You might've read fantasy in Finnish at some point; what does fae/faerie get translated to?
19:20:26 <fizzie> I've read a bit of it in Finnish, but I'm not sure I've read anything that has needed that word. Offhand I'd assume something keiju-derived.
19:20:41 <Deewiant> Oh well.
19:21:03 <fizzie> Or possibly the same as elves.
19:22:43 <fizzie> A Midsummer Night's Dream's faeries in the translations go the keiju way, I think.
19:23:51 <fizzie> (Kaijukeiju.)
19:24:00 <Deewiant> I was just wondering if there was anything clever for the collective fae-word.
19:24:02 <Deewiant> I guess not.
19:26:08 <Deewiant> "keijupiiri" is still too long, but at least it has a computing-related piiri pun.
19:28:24 <Deewiant> Maybe "haltiapiiri", with the binary of course being called "halt".
19:28:27 <elliott> Deewiant: Does it have to be 8.3 too?
19:28:42 <fizzie> Unrelated, but I'd like to see the term "keijuvirtapiiri" be used somewhere.
19:28:45 <Deewiant> Preferably but it's not a requirement.
19:29:37 <fizzie> Speaking of translations, what are hattivatit in English?
19:29:54 <Deewiant> "The Hattifatteners"
19:30:44 <fizzie> Well, it's quite close to the Swedish.
19:31:14 <elliott> Man, blue is hard.
19:32:17 <fizzie> For those not up to speed in Moomin lore, Hattifatteners are the guys in the lower-right corner of http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/Moomin_kuva.JPG
19:32:50 <Deewiant> They have their own article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hattifattener
19:33:06 <elliott> fizzie: Who *wouldn't* be up to speed in Moomin lore?
19:33:17 <fizzie> Deewiant: Yes, but the picture there just looks stupid.
19:33:23 <Deewiant> If you say so.
19:33:54 <fizzie> The Finnish version of the article is much better.
19:34:00 <fizzie> "Näkymättömässä lapsessa Muumipapan näkemissä veneissä on aina pariton määrä hattivatteja[1], mutta toisaalta Muumipeikossa ja pyrstötähdessä tekijän kuvituksessa on kahden, neljän ja kuudenkin hattivatin veneitä[2]."
19:34:05 <fizzie> It's all so meaningful.
19:34:08 <Deewiant> :-D
19:34:19 <fizzie> I'm sure there's some kind of deep symbolism involved.
19:34:43 <elliott> You Finns and your weird language.
19:36:26 <fizzie> elliott: "In The Invisible Child the boats Moominpappa sees always carry an odd number of Hattifatteners[1], but on the other hand in Comet in Moominland the author's illustrations have boats of two, four and even six Hattifatteners."
19:36:31 <fizzie> [2]
19:37:40 <elliott> You Finns and your weird language.
19:37:54 <fizzie> That was in your weird language. Well, mostly.

19:38:33 <fizzie> That's the best translated name.
19:39:16 <fizzie> ("Hemuli" is one of the common pet names derived from my first name, so I have a particular affinity to them.)

20:40:25 <fizzie> oerjan: "10 weeks plus (at staffer discretion) one additional week per full year of registration, up to a maximum of five additional weeks."
20:40:31 <fizzie> You can poke any op on #freenode.
20:40:40 <oerjan> oh, they've changed it then.
20:40:42 <fizzie> I poked the one with the lowest idle time for my cloak.

20:41:16 <lambdabot> 105
20:41:27 <oerjan> should be enough i think
20:41:34 <fizzie> Fiora: I poked the person who at the moment had the lowest idle time, for the purpose of getting my 'unaffiliated' cloak set on.
20:41:43 <Fiora> how do I figure out who has the lowest idle time?
20:41:54 <oerjan> Fiora: that's the hard part!
20:42:06 <fizzie> You can whois them randomly until you find a low enough number.
20:42:13 <Fiora> pfff okay
20:42:28 <Fiora> is a + okay? or do I need a @ in freenode
20:42:48 <fizzie> Well, technically you I think should do "/quote STATS p" these days.
20:42:49 <Fiora> there aren't any @s
20:42:58 <Fiora> ?
20:42:59 <Fiora> what does that do?
20:43:05 <oerjan> Fiora: not a channel op, a network op or what they call it
20:43:19 <fizzie> It will list staff members.
20:43:35 <Bike> 'oper', isn't it
20:43:46 <Fiora> oh, I see
20:43:56 <Fiora> okay, I used whois, but it doesn't say idle time
20:44:05 <oerjan> Fiora: Fuchs seems to be the one
20:44:23 <fizzie> Yeah, sorry, voiced on #freenode as opposed to opped.
20:44:40 <fizzie> "All staff currently connected to the network will be voiced in #freenode. Keep in mind that all network staff are volunteers and you may sometimes have to wait for a staffer to become active. You can also issue the command /stats p from within your IRC client."
20:44:46 <fizzie> (The quote was to make it more compatible.)
20:44:56 <oerjan> to get idle times you have to use the /whois Fuchs Fuchs syntax, which asks their local server
20:44:57 <Fiora> okies let me try that
20:45:03 <fizzie> This latter list seems to be "on-call" people, so they should I guess be awake.
20:45:06 <fizzie> Fuchs is on that list.
20:45:13 <fizzie> Could be a good first attempt.
20:45:46 <Fiora> Yay, Fuchs is there
20:45:47 <oerjan> fizzie: he had the lowest idle time a minute ago
20:46:13 <Fiora> Yay

21:21:02 <Fiora> would the "extra zeroes" be the alternate infinities?
21:21:36 <Sgeo__> You'd want 1/(i*inf) to be a different 0 from 1/(inf) I think
21:21:41 <oerjan> they would probably be infinitesimals, not infinities.
21:21:56 <Fiora> hmm. since complex numbers can be represented as magnitude * angle, wouldn't Sgeo__'s thing allow an infinite number of infinities?

21:27:07 <oerjan> Sgeo__: your idea looks like you want to add a circle of infinities, one for each angle, and then identify some of them. which should give you a donut/torus if you do it correctly.
21:27:35 <oerjan> no guarantees on it having any use for complex analysis, though.
21:27:59 <Sgeo__> Wait, since when is usefulness an important thing?
21:28:39 <oerjan> you'd want to identify all of the four infinity*(+-sqrt(2)/2 +- i*sqrt(2)/2) points, i think.
21:29:04 <oerjan> and otherwise identify the left and right arc, and the upper and lower arch.
21:29:57 <oerjan> by mirroring across the y and x axes, respectively.
21:30:44 <oerjan> (reflecting through 0 would give you the real projective plane instead, ignoring the sqrt(2)/2 parts.)

21:35:30 <oerjan> yep
21:35:56 <Phantom_Hoover> oh is he doing C/(x~-x) in an attempt to make a torus
21:37:01 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover: well he didn't directly imply that, so i clarified that what he said could be extended to give a torus but not by identifying x and -x
21:37:21 <Phantom_Hoover> wait i did that wrong anyway
21:37:40 <oerjan> well yeah he was only identifying infinities.
21:38:00 <Phantom_Hoover> i guess that's what i deserve for trying to sound clever

21:42:58 <oerjan> a major ham event, i take
21:43:10 <atriq> Nobody knows (or nobody is forthcoming about) the identity of the perpetrator or perpetrators
21:43:30 <elliott> maybe they're putting a

21:43:46 <atriq> ...

21:43:57 <atriq> I'm the only hammed person who lives in Hexham, to my knowledge
21:44:13 <oerjan> incidentally no:ham = en:him.
21:44:28 <atriq> There's no ham en him
21:47:20 <fizzie> Hey, another Hexagon (isn't that the collective term for you?), I'll re-quote that one thing. Sorry if you logread.
21:47:23 <fizzie> "They were the pointed Saxon minuscules of the eighth or ninth century A.D., and brought with them memories of an uncouth time when under a fresh Christian veneer ancient faiths and ancient rites stirred stealthily, and the pale moon of Britain looked sometimes on strange deeds in the Roman ruins of Caerleon and Hexham, and by the towers along Hadrian's crumbling wall."
21:47:43 <fizzie> Are there many strange deeds in Hexham?
21:48:44 <atriq> Yeah, all the time
21:49:26 <fizzie> Is your moon paler than other countries' moons?
21:49:36 <atriq> A tad
21:50:17 <Phantom_Hoover> the moon struck me as particularly bright tonight, actually
21:50:30 <oerjan> fizzie: Hexagon is the name of trondheim's gamer club, btw. if they still exist.
21:50:58 <Phantom_Hoover> goodness, what are the odds of two people individually making up a word that weird
21:51:05 <Phantom_Hoover> it's the biggest naming coincidence since dennis the menace
21:51:32 <oerjan> erm you do know it's the greek term for a six-edged polygon, right?
21:51:40 <elliott> no

21:57:35 <oerjan> atriq: that doesn't quite apply when they're hexagonal, does it?
21:57:41 <monqy> Chinese Checkers but a Hexagon Instead of a Hexagram
21:57:45 <Phantom_Hoover> don't say things like that, you know how atriq feels about monopoly
22:00:10 <oerjan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Board_game#Common_terms seems to imply it is space/square or cell/hex, with no term being completely shape-independent
22:00:33 <atriq> I say "square" is shape-independent
22:00:44 <oerjan> ok i guess space is closest
22:00:51 <atriq> Because I'm a linguistic pragmatist

22:07:04 <Phantom_Hoover> why
22:07:54 <oerjan> to see if they are properly exchangeable modules, of course!
22:07:56 <elliott> where's zomgmodules
22:08:07 <olsner> @where zomgmodules
22:08:07 <lambdabot> I know nothing about zomgmodules.
22:08:22 <oerjan> Gregor ate him
22:08:29 <atriq> This feels somewhat strange
22:09:36 <atriq> I feel...
22:09:45 <atriq> moderately more confident in my gender identity
22:10:05 <olsner> ... because Gregor ate zomgmodules?
22:10:26 <atriq> That too
22:10:53 <atriq> More likely, because I know have Phantom_Hoover's corpus callosum
22:11:31 <Phantom_Hoover> how do you know i'm moderately more confident in my gender identity
22:11:49 <atriq> Well, now you're probably slightly less
22:11:56 <atriq> You have my corpus callosum

22:22:12 <kmc> yep
22:22:19 <kmc> is that the part where jesus yells at a fig tree and it dies

22:23:30 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
22:23:44 <kmc> i wonder what is the point of including in the bible a story where jesus is a dick to a tree
22:23:57 <kmc> does it serve some rhetorical purpose
22:24:27 <Fiora> maybe it's just one of those things stuck in to make the fans speculate wildly and write fanfiction about it
22:24:30 <kmc> haha
22:24:38 <kmc> "you mean the book of mormon?"
22:24:39 <Fiora> which never gets answered in canon
22:24:40 <Fiora> yes yes XD
22:24:44 <Bike> man have you seen the new testament, it's full of crazy shit nobody reads
22:24:48 <Phantom_Hoover> how'd we get here from lampreys
22:24:51 <Bike> old testament*
22:24:58 <Fiora> "I like the books, but christianity has a /completely/ batshit fandom"
22:25:14 <Bike> monday i found out there was a whole book i'd never heard of, that just says "god hates you you fucking shitheads" repeatedly for three pages and that's it
22:25:17 <Fiora> "they're almost as crazy as supernatural fans! jeez"
22:25:32 <kmc> yeah it's great when christians advocate death penalty for homosexuality but ignore the next paragraph that prescribes death penalty for wearing the wrong fabrics or eating shellfish
22:25:45 <Bike> also, the top weirdest bible story is the one with Zipporah and foreskins
22:25:57 <Fiora> I think they're misunderstanding the quote anyways. it says a man who lies with another man should be stoned
22:26:02 <Bike> «On the way, at a place where they spent the night, the LORD met him and tried to kill him. But Zipporah took a flint and cut off her son's foreskin, and touched his feet with it, and said, "Truly you are a bridegroom of blood to me!" So he let him alone. It was then she said, "A bridegroom of blood by circumcision."»
22:26:13 <Bike> the end
22:26:13 <Fiora> it's advising them that their sex is better while high, obviously
22:26:15 <kmc> San Francisco: a man who lies with another man should get stoned
22:26:17 <kmc> yessssss
22:26:36 <kmc> Bike: wat
22:26:50 <atriq> I think it says "A man who lies with men like he lies with women"
22:27:04 <atriq> Which is rather specific if you think about it
22:27:06 <Bike> kmc: exodus 4:24, look it up heathen
22:27:13 <Phantom_Hoover> god hates only bisexuals
22:27:14 <Phantom_Hoover> makes sense
22:27:18 <Phantom_Hoover> male bisexuals, at that
22:27:33 <kmc> in that sense god is in good company
22:27:45 <Phantom_Hoover> male bisexuals who prefer specific sex positions, at that
22:27:50 <kmc> heh
22:28:58 <Gregor> looooooooool
22:29:18 <Gregor> Male bisexuals who prefer specific sex positions, AND prefer to use the same sex positions with both sexes.
22:29:30 <Phantom_Hoover> well that's what i meant by 'specific'
22:29:45 <Fiora> does the bible even say anything about non-heterosexual women?
22:29:52 <Gregor> Basically what God's saying is “treat men and women differently only when you fuck them”
22:29:53 <kmc> so it's okay to get an anonymous bj at the train station, but you can't bring a guy home to cuddle
22:29:58 <kmc> so... god is a closeted gay man?
22:30:00 <Gregor> Fiora: Nope.
22:30:08 <Phantom_Hoover> Fiora, no, either because girl on girl is hot or because it was the past and they hadn't realised lesbians exist yet
22:30:20 <Gregor> (The former)
22:30:27 <Phantom_Hoover> i remember reading the wp article about roman attitudes to sex, it's quite amusing
22:30:38 <Bike> or because the parts in question are concerned with ritual cleanliness, and male priests have more opinions on anal than on scissoring
22:30:41 <Phantom_Hoover> as a man, the most humiliating and taboo thing you could do was cunnilingus
22:30:48 -!- monqy has quit (Quit: hello).
22:31:00 <Fiora> Phantom_Hoover: but they still make a fuss about how horrible and sinful you are
22:31:02 <kmc> didn't some english queen also say that there was no need to ban female homosexuality because it was logically impossible
22:31:06 <Gregor> <Phantom_Hoover> well that's what i meant by 'specific' // it's specific in two ways: (1) it's a lying position, and (2) it's the same for both sexes
22:31:22 <atriq> kmc, Victoria, I believe
22:31:25 <Phantom_Hoover> oh, fair point
22:31:43 <kmc> yeah that was my guess too
22:31:52 <Phantom_Hoover> atriq, yeah, but what do you really think she was doing for those long years after albert died
22:32:10 <atriq> Hunting down pirates with her bare hands?
22:32:24 <Phantom_Hoover> no atriq that is probably one of those stupid things you like
22:32:30 <Fiora> and apparently somehow being asexual is sinful too or something I really don't know how this works
22:32:50 <atriq> If asexuality is sinful then I am a sinner
22:33:02 * Fiora sinner high five?
22:33:03 <Bike> depression's sinful too. medieval commentators just had not enough to do, I think.
22:33:17 * atriq sinner high five.
22:33:17 <olsner> atriq: be fruitful and multiply! or whatever it says

22:34:10 <Fiora> atriq: neither am I
22:34:13 <olsner> if you lie with neither men nor women, I guess you lie with both the same way
22:34:21 <Fiora> (aromantic is ~20% of asexuals iirc)
22:34:49 <atriq> About half of the vocal asexuals I've met are aromantic
22:35:08 <atriq> Saying that, I've only ever met one other vocal asexual
22:35:13 <fizzie> All the asexuals are highly aromatic, however.

22:37:16 <Fiora> question 15 is the best though ;)
22:38:20 <Phantom_Hoover> N is not worth much without further information on the population
22:38:36 <Fiora> it's true, there's probably some pretty significant bias, though they also have some stats-breakdown among the three websites
22:38:45 <Fiora> to show possible disparities
22:40:04 <Phantom_Hoover> there's a massive bias in gender ratio

22:47:13 <kmc> http://mako.cc/copyrighteous/20121123-00 a nice article about how intellectuals compete to be ignorant of sports and how this isn't actually a good thing
22:48:16 <Phantom_Hoover> you have a definite habit of dragging your pet peeves into the channel, you know
22:48:37 <elliott> what kind of an animal is a peeve
22:48:58 <BabsSeed> One you don't want to meet.

22:49:56 <Bike> would have expected the title of the paper to be "anything but rap and country", kmc
22:50:14 <olsner> kmc: hmm, the statistics seem to be from the US ... I wonder how well they apply to other parts of the world
22:51:02 <olsner> oh, and now I realized that "football" in the article probably refers to the other kind of football
22:51:03 <kmc> Phantom_Hoover: yep
22:51:17 <kmc> as it happened though someone else sent this link to another channel just now
22:52:12 <elliott> i like kmc's complaining
22:52:18 <elliott> gotta have some grumpy in your life
22:52:27 <elliott> tho i produce enough for multiple people myself
22:54:31 <olsner> oh, interesting that heavy metal is a "less educated" kind of music according to that paper, I find that about half of the geeks here are metalheads
22:55:00 <Bike> yeah, that's why i expected rap and country, that's what i'm used to nerds not liking.
22:55:27 <Phantom_Hoover> i love how in dwarf fortress the dorfs are always the 'mountain people', yet the game makes it impossible to actually embark on a mountain
22:56:21 <elliott> kmc: you should fix mosh so that irssi doesn't underline these non-links imo
22:56:42 <elliott> by fix I mean break mosh
22:56:44 <elliott> to fix irssi
22:56:52 <olsner> hmm, do you usually "embark" on mountains?
22:56:57 -!- BabsSeed has changed nick to Gregor.
22:56:58 <Phantom_Hoover> also kmc does tend to complain about the same thing multiple times over the course of a week or so
22:57:20 <Phantom_Hoover> olsner, not really, you can embark on hills but that's kind of different
22:57:29 <Phantom_Hoover> actual mountains are all off-limits
22:57:33 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: well to be fair so do you
22:57:33 <elliott> and me
22:57:34 <elliott> and everyone
22:58:37 <olsner> afaik you can only embark on journeys and vehicles
22:59:14 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, i don't really notice other people repeatedly complaining about the same thing?
22:59:34 <Phantom_Hoover> like it's generally 'you know what bugs me? <thing>" and then everyone says 'yeah me too' and that's that
23:00:17 <kmc> Bike: yeah me too
23:00:18 <elliott> well maybe you will complain about kmc complaining again tomorrow and I will have a concrete example
23:00:21 <elliott> i don't see the problem :p
23:00:34 <olsner> to be fair I don't think this counts purely as repeated complaint, because kmc added new information to the sports-hate-peeve with a link
23:00:52 <Phantom_Hoover> well true
23:01:13 <Phantom_Hoover> it was just the point at which i felt it worth commenting on
23:05:09 <kmc> also it's a different angle than my complaint
23:05:40 <kmc> Bike: oh, the abstract of the paper says "gospel, country, rap, and heavy metal"
23:05:57 <kmc> my complaint is just that being proud of ignorance is dumb, and hypocritical coming from intellectuals
23:06:11 <kmc> mako's making a point about classism and stuff
23:06:26 <elliott> test
23:06:28 <kmc> and the resolution is different too

23:07:26 <elliott> ugh, it did what I didn't want it to do
23:07:42 <elliott> frustrating
23:07:42 <olsner> hmm, anti-intellectualism seems a sort of similar thing
23:08:18 <Bike> kmc: oh i know, i was just making a mostly irrelevant comment on an unimportant aspect like i usually do
23:08:48 <Bike> also the mathiest guy i know is a basketball fan. maybe he can make up for my apathy to football
23:09:15 <elliott> maybe i can pay kmc to fix this shit

23:26:17 -!- elliott has quit (Quit: leaving).
23:26:40 <Phantom_Hoover> btw i would like to express my deep hatred of differential equations
23:27:13 <Bike> what did they ever do to you
23:28:02 -!- elliott has joined.
23:28:13 <Phantom_Hoover> they bored me to tears
23:29:31 <Bike> but what if you need to describe your tear to boredom ratio over time
23:29:39 <Bike> bet a diffeq would help!
23:30:27 <Phantom_Hoover> i'd give it to a damn engineer
23:31:00 <Phantom_Hoover> that's what they're for after all
23:31:53 <Bike> what if you were trapped on a desert island with only a bottle of tears and a wwii-era naval cannon aim control system
