00:47:08 <shachaf> 18:52:21 <monochrom> always trust monochrom after you have asked him to double-check and he has confirmed
00:47:21 <Fiora> ion: I... have no idea >_< I don't know haskell
00:47:43 <fizzie> WordNet also has an API.
00:47:45 <shachaf> Fiora: unsafeCoerce is like reinterpret_cast.
00:48:10 <shachaf> Fiora: You should learn Haskell!
00:49:41 <fizzie> It does not know anything about phonology, though.
00:50:02 <Fiora> I learned haskell before for class... kind of...
00:52:05 <shachaf> they teach haskell in classes now??
00:52:50 <Fiora> Um... our compilers class used haskell, mostly, so the professor taught us a bit of it
00:52:58 <fizzie> (There are a couple free pronunciation dictionaries of different size, but none of those I know about collect other sort of mettadatta.)
00:53:39 <shachaf> which compilers class
00:53:46 <shachaf> "oh wait pseudonym never mind"
00:54:02 <elliott> dont be a dick
00:54:38 <shachaf> ?
00:55:23 <shachaf> I should stop phrasing things in esoterese.
00:55:53 <Fiora> or... actually wait, I think it was the programming languages class?
00:56:19 <elliott> haskell is well-suited for compilers at least, so it's a fairly good setting to encounter it in
00:56:30 <Fiora> geez it was three years ago now >_<
00:57:37 <Fiora> whatever it was we did do some compiler-making in it, like stuff with inheritance and type checking and super basic optimization
00:57:45 <Fiora> haskell pattern matching was like amazing for it
00:57:54 <Fiora> you could write a peephole optimizer by pattern-matching against instruction sequences
00:58:00 <elliott> three years ago i was 14........... yikes
00:58:00 <fizzie> Our compiler class: used Java; and compiled: "MiniJava"; which has as a single lexical token the string "System.out.println".
00:58:14 <elliott> fizzie: nice
00:58:43 <Fiora> like you could match against (mul x 2) and turn it into (add x x) type of thing
01:00:05 <fizzie> elliott: Statement ::= "System.out.println" "(" Expression ")" ";".
01:00:32 <elliott> every time i do a simple peephole optimiser it always feels like i'm not really doing optimisation because it's too simple :(
01:00:34 <fizzie> (The type of Expression must also be "int".)
01:01:11 <elliott> hm is x+x or x*2 actually faster in general with today's cpus(tm)? I have no idea
01:01:16 <elliott> I would assume the latter, but
01:01:19 <elliott> (I realise it was just an example)
01:01:38 <fizzie> Oh, also: MainClass ::= "class" Identifier "{" "public" "static" "void" "main" "(" "String" "[" "]" Identifier ")" "{" Statement "}" "}".
01:02:08 <Fiora> add is typically 1 cycle latency and can issue on every pipe, so 0.25/0.33/0.5 inverse throughput depending on the CPU?
01:02:10 <fizzie> None of those things ("public", "static", "String") have any sort of more proper significance. They're just... strings.
01:02:22 <Fiora> multiply kind of ranges but like... it usually can only issue once per cycle and it has higher latency so it's like... 3/1, 4/1, 5/1 ish?
01:02:35 <Fiora> I mean it kind of makes sense that adds are a lot easier than multiplies
01:02:57 <elliott> mm
01:03:05 <Sgeo> Did the interview ever get published or anything?
01:03:11 <fizzie> Fiora: But do they deal with immediate 2 in any sort of special way? (Perhaps not, since it's the sort of thing you'd expect tools to do.)
01:03:12 <elliott> I don't know what 0.25/0.33/0.5 inverse throughput actually means :(

01:07:45 <elliott> right
01:07:47 <Fiora> usually I think other things tend to be the bottleneck for cycle length?
01:07:51 <Fiora> so like, atom has only two execution pipes
01:07:55 <Fiora> so it can't possibly do more than two adds
01:08:12 <fizzie> "In Intel microarchitecture code name Sandy Bridge, the low 64-bit result of a 128-bit multiply is ready to use in 3 cycles and the high 64-bit result is ready one cycle after the low 64-bit result. -- In a dependent chain of addition of integers wider than 128-bits, accessing the high 64-bits result of the multiply should be delayed relative to the low 64-bit multiply result for optimal ...
01:08:15 <Fiora> so usually every execution pipe can do at least the most simple things
01:08:18 <fizzie> ... software pipelining."
01:08:22 <fizzie> Writing a proper optimizing compiler must be the best job.
01:10:07 <Fiora> from agner's little chart thing, various CPUs doing 32x32->32 multiplies: bulldozer: 4/2 sandy bridge: 3/1 original p4: 14/4.5 prescott: 10/2.5 atom: 5/2
01:11:39 <Fiora> I was guessing on the haswell add thing, like, I just remember hearing that they added a 4th execution pipe for super-simple-things-only, to handle like, jumps and loop overhead and stuff while the others handle big things like simd operations?
01:12:17 <fizzie> A kind of a... half-pipe... (ba-dum tssh)
01:12:54 * Fiora dies
01:13:09 <fizzie> It's some kind of a snow ski thing, right?
01:13:18 <Fiora> I think so it's like a skateboarding thing?
01:13:28 <Fiora> I know this because my little brother was really, really into tony hawk's pro skater
01:13:38 <fizzie> I think Ski Or Die had a half-pipe event.
01:13:38 <shachaf> let's settle on snowboarding hth
01:13:55 <elliott> the tony hawk's games obsoleted actual skateboarding
01:14:03 <fizzie> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ski_or_Die <- Snowboard Halfpipe is like right there in the article image.
01:14:17 <Fiora> so now intel has like, 7 execution pipes
01:16:09 <fizzie> "When a girl start giving a guy head but then decides to stop/leave before the guy blows his load. -- She stoped giving me head before I cames and she left. All I got was a half-pipe." thanks, urban dictionary.
01:16:16 <fizzie> Also, "stoped".
01:16:25 <fizzie> Did you stoped at the red light?
01:17:11 <Fiora> http://www.csanl.com.br/alunos/paginas/2012/7a/f7a14/Image%209.jpg
01:17:13 <Fiora> I think it's that thing
01:17:19 <Fiora> but um I guess this is kind of off topic
01:17:44 <fizzie> I don't see how, it was a logical consequence of whatever came before.
01:21:13 <fizzie> "The current method of half pipe cutting is by use of a Zaugg Pipe Monster." okay that's it time to sleep it's 4:20am

01:27:07 -!- Koen_ has quit (Quit: Koen_).
01:27:19 <kmc> i learned from 6.004 that there are lots of different ways you can structure an adder
01:27:26 <kmc> with the goal of minimizing gate delay
01:27:33 <kmc> but they probably have settled on one by now
01:28:18 <kmc> like the naive adder takes O(# bits) to settle down; the last gate can't start settling before it gets the carry from the previous
01:28:52 <elliott> how long until the transistors are small enough to just hardcode all the results
01:29:09 -!- carado has joined.
01:29:12 <elliott> also can we have 3d cube cpus, that would be cool
01:29:26 <Sgeo> "The problem for marketers is that some users set their browsers to reject cookies or quickly extinguish them. And mobile phones, which are taking an increasing chunk of the Web usage, do not use cookies."
01:29:26 <kmc> so you can make a "carry select" adder where you do the last half of the addition twice in parallel, once assuming carry 0, once assuming carry 1
01:29:28 <Fiora> kmc: we can talk more about it and stuff!
01:29:29 <Sgeo> I hate everyone.
01:29:33 <Sgeo> http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamtanner/2013/06/17/the-web-cookie-is-dying-heres-the-creepier-technology-that-comes-next/
01:29:38 <kmc> and then the actual carry just selects between those
01:30:00 <kmc> and so a good archticeture is like an unbalanced tree of this idea recursively
01:30:23 <Fiora> I remember hearing though that the bottleneck in current chips is often things like "select the oldest instructions whose input dependencies are satisfied from this queue of 36 instructions" and things like that? and I guess maybe like cache loads and stuff?
01:30:31 <Fiora> like, OOE logic and things
01:30:41 <elliott> really dumb question: why are chips flat
01:30:57 <elliott> i guess they have 3d internal structure but it's all really small?
01:31:04 <Sgeo> Can someone please tell me where "mobile phones do not use cookies" come from?
01:31:06 <Fiora> it's because of the way lithography works, isn't it?
01:31:10 <Sgeo> It has to be a misunderstanding of SOMETHING
01:31:16 <Fiora> like, it's all about laying down layers
01:31:32 <fizzie> Aren't they starting to do "3D" like right these days?
01:31:41 <Fiora> so like, if you wanted it 3D, you'd have to stick two silicon wafers on top of each other (?) I'm not sure
01:32:39 <elliott> more dumb questions: wouldn't it all be a lot faster if they like, integrated the RAM with the CPU.
01:32:55 <fizzie> Oh, the "3D" of a tri-gate transistor perhaps has nothing to do with three dimensions. How nice.
01:33:51 <Fiora> elliott: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EDRAM it's a thing!
01:34:25 <elliott> oh they actually use it in consoles and stuff
01:34:35 <fizzie> Anyway actual three-dimensional things are a thing too, I'm pretty sure, just not such a commercially viable thing.
01:34:44 <elliott> it seems like it would be, like, significantly faster? because you can skip all the communication paths and stuff
01:34:51 <elliott> and the motherboard and all that?
01:34:54 <elliott> and RAM latency is kind of a big deal right
01:35:14 <elliott> but I guess if they're using it in consoles and not "regular computer" CPUs it mustn't be that amazing..... (but then why are they using it in consoles)
01:35:23 <kmc> intel has those 3D transistors now
01:35:33 <Fiora> I think a lot of RAM latency comes not from the distance but from like...
01:35:35 <kmc> if you want like a cube shape then one big obstacle is routing power and cooling
01:35:56 <Fiora> like, the logic itself? I mean like, there's a controller, which is this crazy complex thing and has to negotiate requests from multiple cores
01:36:17 <elliott> right
01:36:21 <Fiora> and then there's the row/column addressing, the refreshing, and all kinds of stuff I don't really know abot
01:36:32 <Fiora> it's like, DRAM itself is kind of not trivial to access?
01:36:35 <elliott> I just see a long path and think "hey, I bet lightspeed is some kind of bottleneck here in 2013" :P
01:36:46 <shachaf> dram is complicated :'(
01:36:47 <fizzie> kmc: "Tri-gate or 3D Transistor (not to be confused with 3D microchips) fabrication is used by Intel Corporation for the nonplanar transistor architecture --" that seems to sort of imply it's not a properly "3D IC" thing.
01:37:13 <Fiora> (20 centimeters) / ((2 / 3) * c) = 1.00069229 nanoseconds
01:37:26 <Fiora> so like... if the roundtripdistance is 20cm that's like... it's like only 1ns extra time from the wire?
01:37:33 <elliott> mmm
01:39:53 <Fiora> maybe the "3D" is for "3 drain"??
01:40:06 <kmc> yeah i see
01:40:23 <elliott> it seems like there is a trend of moving stuff closer to the cpu anyway
01:40:36 <kmc> yeah DRAM is complicated... it's funny how if you look at any two parts that are "just wired together" you find they're really two machines speaking a protocol
01:40:45 <kmc> and this holds recursively to some depth
01:40:49 <elliott> eventually you will just buy a motherboard from intel where every part of the computer is on one big chip and all it has is USB ports
01:40:57 <Fiora> I remember reading about just how gigantic modern DRAM controllers were, like, they used up a significant part of the silicon or something
01:41:09 <elliott> kmc: does it hold within the CPU itself? I guess probably
01:41:11 <kmc> yeah
01:41:22 <kmc> it's impossible to design something that big without abstractions and protocols
01:41:27 <Fiora> elliott: like, systems on a chip?
01:41:36 <kmc> like the cores on a single die have to execute a cache coherence protocol right
01:41:37 <Fiora> weren't they making like, an atom soc or something (?)
01:42:09 <kmc> heh
01:42:13 <kmc> sounds like something intel would do
01:42:16 <fizzie> *Someone* is making Atom SoCs, at least.

01:44:09 <shachaf> but it's still a good book hth
01:44:18 <kmc> "Intel has announced that it won't provide support for Linux on Cloverview family of Atom systems-on-a-chip"
01:45:15 <elliott> system on a chip looks like that yes

01:51:13 <elliott> the instant the bits leave the screen my knowledge drops to zero
01:51:28 <elliott> ok let's say "disk" instead. except i don't know anything about the disk itself
01:51:54 <kmc> they spin
01:51:57 <kmc> except when they don't
01:52:25 <Fiora> I think there's like magnets involved
01:52:27 <fizzie> When they don't, they just... solid around, right?
01:52:43 <kmc> yep
01:52:55 <shachaf> i love magnets
01:53:04 <elliott> kmc: i have one of those disks that doesn't spin
01:53:09 <elliott> i don't trust it because it doesn't make noises

02:35:39 <elliott> I don't know. I still feel like a VC is taking a big risk on a hot-shot young hustler like this.
02:35:44 <elliott> Venture capital is literally all about taking big risks...
02:35:48 <elliott> Truth. So in that case why aren't other VC firms bringing on young hustlers like Alex here to build relationships and scout out young founders?

02:38:47 <kmc> and world-class drama generator
02:38:56 <elliott> The name of the guy with the tattoos is Robbie, and he's a nice guy. I haven't seen Robby do anything that warranted being asked to leave. Of course, Robby might be nice to me because I am one of two people who bothered to introduce themselves to him.

02:42:40 <kmc> someone else compares this to 9/11 trutherism facetiously

02:43:10 <myndzl> ((i*23831)>>18)*352>>5 -- can this be simplified further?
02:43:38 <Bike> good idea i will think about this question instead of continuing to read.
02:43:54 <shachaf> i've never been to noisebridge "should i go y/n"
02:43:59 <Bike> yes, you could replace the end with *63>>3, couldn't you?
02:44:17 <myndzl> i mean in terms of operations, not numbers
02:44:19 <Bike> wait, i guess not hm
02:44:24 <myndzl> i'm thinking about, say,
02:44:33 <myndzl> adding 352*2^18 in the multiplication
02:44:36 <Bike> no wait you could ok
02:44:36 <myndzl> and shifting by 25

02:45:00 <Bike> bad arithmetic in my head :D
02:45:34 <Bike> i guess it would be *11
02:45:48 <Bike> since i mean, 352 = 11*2^5, is all
02:46:06 <myndzl> doesn't give the same result
02:46:15 <Bike> kmc: lol.
02:46:18 <Bike> why not?
02:46:21 <Bike> sorry i'm kind of out of it
02:46:26 <myndzl> dunno, but i was thinking similar

04:19:52 <kmc> elliott: eh i'm not a fan of implicit conversions, but there is a real usability issue there that shouldn't be ignored
04:20:39 <kmc> it was definitely a mistake to have integer division truncate, though
04:20:43 <kmc> and one they've fixed in python 3
04:22:04 <Bike> This is one of the most important steps right here. WEAR CLOTHES! I can not stress this enough. Some of us enjoy naked gaming, but this is one of the comforts we have to give up in exchange for a streamlined pizza ordering process.
04:22:17 <elliott> kmc: well i would be okay with "implicit conversions" if they actually worked ~like mathematics~ but that's sort of an impossible goal
04:22:34 <elliott> i.e. if 1+0.5+0.5 was 2 and that 2 behaved "as an integer" wherever the distinction is relevant
04:22:39 <elliott> upcasting to float is just silly
04:23:14 <Bike> ide/theory: math is impossible
04:23:36 <kmc> elliott: i hate to say it but there's some appeal to JavaScript's solution
04:23:57 <elliott> i... disagree
04:24:01 <Bike> make everything floats?
04:24:41 <elliott> something like a mathematica-ish "everything is an expression and only done 'numerically' where precision can be maintained and then things like 'is an integer' is just a (possibly-undecidable) predicate" or whatever could work okay
04:25:03 <elliott> Bike: you're not being annoying enough yet btw
04:25:14 <shachaf> elliott: can i be annoying
04:25:21 <Bike> god since when do you have standards for being annoyed

04:26:00 <elliott> rationals with just dumb approximations for things like sqrt could work.....
04:26:01 <elliott> sinful though

04:26:06 <kmc> cosinful

05:06:37 <tswett> Shamir's Secret Sharing sounds like a spell in DC:SS.
05:09:05 <Sgeo> And here I thought "well-ordering of the reals" meant something incredibly trivial and obvious
05:09:17 <Bike> lol how'd you think that
05:09:39 <Sgeo> I have no idea what "Lebesgue measurable" means
05:10:04 <tswett> Ooh, I know what it means. Uh, almost. Lemme think.
05:10:42 <Bike> the lebesgue measure of an interval is just the high minus the low.
05:10:49 <Bike> then you build up unions, etc.
05:10:59 <Bike> then you run into vitali sets and become the unabomber.
05:11:02 <Sgeo> So how is it a Boolean?
05:11:11 <Bike> what
05:11:15 <tswett> First, there's this thing called the "outer measure" of a set.
05:11:21 <Bike> who the hell said anything about bools
05:11:21 <Sgeo> "Question: is it equiconsistent with reasonable large cardinals that there is a well-ordering of the reals which - as a relation on R2 - is Lebesgue measurable?"
05:11:30 <kmc> tswett: re shamir: yes
05:11:34 <Bike> what does that have to do with bools
05:11:39 <shachaf> http://shachaf.net/what-about-this-channel.txt
05:11:46 <kmc> zero-knowledge proofs would be a good RPG power as well
05:11:51 <Bike> 404.
05:11:58 <Sgeo> "This well-ordering is Lebesgue measurable" vs "This well-ordering is not Lebesgue measurable"
05:12:03 <tswett> So let's say that a "boxing" of a set S is a countable set T of closed boxes, such that the union of T is a superset of S.
05:12:21 <Bike> Sgeo: that's whether you /can/ measure it, i.e. that it has a measure, not what that measure is.
05:12:38 <Bike> vitali sets are non-measurable, so's the well-ordering (as a relation in the usual construction of relations)
05:12:52 <Sgeo> Vitali?
05:12:54 <tswett> The measure of a boxing is just the sum of the sizes of all of the boxes. The outer measure of a set is the infimum of the measures of all of its boxings.
05:13:01 <Bike> Vitali.
05:13:03 <Sgeo> I'm going to go to sleep
05:13:06 <Bike> named after a guy named Vitali.
05:13:46 <tswett> Now, for all sets that have Lebesgue measure, the Lebesgue measure is equal to the outer measure. And a set is Lebesgue measurable if and only if it has a Lebesgue measure.
05:13:49 <Sgeo> Oh!
05:13:52 <Sgeo> R^2, not R
05:13:58 <tswett> So the only remaining question is: what does it mean for a set to be measurable?
05:14:04 <Bike> -roll-
05:14:19 <tswett> And the answer is, uh...
05:14:43 <Sgeo> I'm going to get some sleep. Sleep off the sleep deprivation drunk
05:14:51 <Bike> get drunker
05:14:51 <Sgeo> Whuch is different from actual drjnk
05:14:52 <tswett> I dunno. Lemme look it up.
05:15:00 <Sgeo> I don't like 'actual' stuff very much
05:15:40 <Sgeo> I don't do genetic manipulation of actual animals, I don't get actual drunk
05:15:51 <Bike> missing out imo
05:15:52 <Bike> on both
05:16:02 <Bike> have you considered getting mutants drunk
05:16:10 <tswett> Okay. A set S is measurable if and only if for all sets A, the outer measure of A is the outer measure of A \ S plus the outer measure of A intersect S.
05:16:13 <tswett> Apparently.

05:18:02 * Sgeo 's brain elided the word 'Nice'
05:18:11 <Sgeo> So, Question badge...
05:18:38 <Bike> "Is there a well-ordering of the reals after all, measurable or not?" lolololol
05:18:57 <shachaf> Do you get a badge at 50 answerpoints?
05:18:58 <Bike> Sgeo: if you want to talk about it before you sleep, what's confusing
05:19:18 <Sgeo> Bike, how the answer isn't trivially yes
05:19:41 <Bike> Ok, so, what's a well ordering?
05:20:30 <Sgeo> How there could exist two reals, a and b, for which none of (a < b) (a > b) (a = b) is correct. I guess there's more to it, such as consistency when c is introduced?
05:20:41 <Bike> That's not a well order.
05:20:43 <shachaf> Bike: you know the sorcerer's apprentice? it's kind of like that
05:20:44 <Bike> That's just a total order.
05:20:58 <Bike> A well order is a total order + every subset has a least element.
05:21:24 <Sgeo> Oh
05:21:46 <Sgeo> Rationals aren't well-ordered then either, I think
05:21:48 <Bike> < isn't a well order on the reals. For example, consider the nonzero positive reals.
05:22:01 <tswett> Yeah, the usual ordering on the rational orders isn't well.
05:22:03 <Bike> But, if you have the axiom of choice you can show that a well order does exist.
05:22:03 <Sgeo> Wait, hmm
05:22:07 <Bike> scandalous, I know
05:22:10 <tswett> Nor is the usual ordering on the integers.
05:23:01 <shachaf> Hmm... Does the C spec actually specify there can't be more than 2^(CHAR_BIT * sizeof(void *)) distinct values of type void *?
05:23:45 <Bike> does the C spec ever talk about cardinalities of types
05:24:01 <shachaf> Well, the question is whether C can be Turing-complete this way.
05:24:03 <lifthrasiir> mostly implied by limits.h, aren't they?
05:24:16 <shachaf> limits.h for void *?
05:24:29 <lifthrasiir> none.
05:24:41 <Bike> would that include those int ptr things
05:24:44 <Fiora> it's okay to access a void* pointer as a bunch of uint8_t, right? by aliasing rules
05:24:53 <Fiora> so you could use that to show that constraint applies
05:24:56 <lifthrasiir> I think it is totally valid to limit the possible values of void* to 32...
05:25:05 <shachaf> Fiora: Would it?
05:25:14 <lifthrasiir> hmm, wait, 32 is too small, let's say it'd be 4096.
05:25:59 <Fiora> shachaf: like, if sizeof(void*) is x, and you access it as a series of x char values, then each char can have at most 2^CHAR_BIT values, so....?
05:26:23 <Fiora> I don't know, just a guess >_<
05:26:35 <Bike> How many uint8_t do you need
05:26:36 <shachaf> Can you actually access it as a series of x char values, I mean?
05:26:39 <lifthrasiir> Fiora: not exactly, since some representations of void* can be declared invalid. same goes for integers.
05:26:39 <Bike> sizeof(void*)?
05:28:01 <lifthrasiir> Fiora: let me quote a footnote in C99: In particular, if == is defined for type T, then x == y does not imply that memcmp(&x, &y, sizeof (T)) == 0.
05:28:07 <Fiora> lifthrasiir: it can be an upper bound though, right?
05:28:11 <lifthrasiir> right
05:28:22 <Fiora> like it can't be a lower bound, but it can be an upper one, which is what shachaf asked for, right? or did I misunderstand
05:28:50 <Fiora> shachaf: void *y; char *x = (char*)&y; I guess?
05:29:23 <shachaf> Fiora: Well, sure you can write that code. I'm not sure whether it's actually allowed.
05:29:27 <lifthrasiir> yeah, it is guaranteed that a conformant C program cannot access the infinite memory (but it can access the arbitrarily large memory).
05:29:40 <shachaf> lifthrasiir: Guaranteed where?
05:29:59 <lifthrasiir> uh, sorry, wait a min, I may have misread the spec,
05:30:08 <lifthrasiir> I thought intptr_t is mandatory but it wasn't
05:30:18 <Fiora> intptr_t is mandatory in C99, I think?
05:30:24 <lifthrasiir> (any integer types including intptr_t are guaranteed to be finite)
05:30:37 <Fiora> but like, intptr_t is just "a type big enough to hold any pointer", isn't it? like, it's allowed to be bigger than void*
05:30:54 <shachaf> Well, it's still an upper bound, like you said.
05:30:57 <lifthrasiir> yes, so I thought it is an ultimate upper bound.
05:31:03 <lifthrasiir> (not tight one of course0
05:31:05 <lifthrasiir> )*
05:31:15 <shachaf> I guess if you're allowed to cast to intptr_t and back that's enough...
05:31:18 <Fiora> it could be larger than 2^(sizeof(void*)*CHAR_BIT)... right...?
05:31:25 <shachaf> Right.
05:31:40 <shachaf> The goal was to figure out whether you can make a Turing-complete implementation of C, though.
05:32:15 <lifthrasiir> hmm, sizeof() is guaranteed to return a finite result (the value of the result is implementation-defined, and not an undefined behavior)
05:32:34 <shachaf> Sure.
05:32:35 <lifthrasiir> and CHAR_BIT should be finite either
05:32:39 <Fiora> oh...
05:32:43 <lifthrasiir> so void* should be finite too
05:32:44 <Fiora> sorry, I didn't realize the context
05:32:52 <shachaf> lifthrasiir: void * has a finite sizeof.
05:33:06 <shachaf> The question was whether via a tricky reading of the rules you could have more than that many void * values.
05:33:22 <shachaf> (Well, in particular infinitely many.)
05:33:28 <lifthrasiir> I think not
05:33:39 <shachaf> The intptr_t argument seems convincing, I guess.
05:34:18 <shachaf> Hmm, my stackoverflow question is up to 50 votes.
05:34:20 <lifthrasiir> since C requires every non-bit-field values ("objects" in the spec) to be stored as an array of bytes of CHAR_BIT bits
05:34:23 <shachaf> Was that one of you?
05:34:27 <shachaf> I didn't get a badge.
05:34:50 <lifthrasiir> such representation is explicitly called an "object representation"
05:34:58 <lifthrasiir> and should exist for any non-bit-field values
05:35:06 <lifthrasiir> including void*
05:35:31 <lifthrasiir> (in fact, this also prohibits a native implementation of C in ternary computers)
05:36:22 <lifthrasiir> well, language lawyering is fun!

17:27:51 <olsner> wow, that's awefully inclusive of you
17:27:58 <Bike> The world is changing, and frankly we’re running out of family members who speak Mandarin
17:31:10 <oerjan> btw did you know mcdonalds isn't a trademark in scotland, and they need the actual clan's permission to use it?
17:32:14 <Gregor> That explains why they only sell the McHaggis Quarter Pounder with Bladder there.
17:32:16 <elliott> haha that's fantastic
17:32:58 <elliott> fun fact: McDonald's was originally named cDonald's, after the theorem. the famous arches were originally circular.
17:33:46 <elliott> oh i guess using "circular" ruins that
17:33:55 <coppro> elliott: why?

17:38:43 <oerjan> hm i'm wondering if what i said was actually true.
17:39:14 <oerjan> the following looks like a counterargument: "The company has threatened many food businesses with legal action unless it drops the Mc or Mac from trading names. In one noteworthy case, McDonald's sued a Scottish café owner called McDonald, even though the business in question dated back over a century (Sheriff Court Glasgow and Strathkelvin, November 21, 1952)."

19:36:04 <ion> I have three FB friends who like PHP. D-:
19:36:11 <Bike> oh man they added finally. finally

19:36:41 <Bike> kneel before zend
19:36:52 <kmc> and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N1_rocket
19:36:56 <Bike> "Added support for using empty() on the result of function calls and other expressions" huh?
19:37:03 <kmc> "Each of the four attempts to launch an N1 failed; during the second launch attempt the N1 rocket crashed back onto its launch pad shortly after liftoff and exploded, resulting in one of the largest artificial non-nuclear explosion in human history"
19:37:13 <Fiora> wooow. 30 main engines @_@
19:37:33 <Bike> "Fixed bug #64515 (Memoryleak when using the same variablename 2times in function declaration)" um
19:37:39 <Phantom_Hoover> entertainingly those engines are actually the ones being used in the 'new' nasa cargo rocket they were showing off a while back
19:37:44 <kmc> "After detecting the inoperative fuel pump, the automatic engine control shut off 29 of 30 engines, which caused the rocket to fall."
19:37:48 <kmc> good programming imo

19:38:37 <Bike> elliott: good, good
19:38:41 <elliott> you have to assign stuff to variables a lot to be able to like index them as arrays or whatever
19:38:42 <Fiora> if just one fails it'd throw things off balance, right?
19:38:44 <elliott> for no good reason
19:38:57 <Phantom_Hoover> no, that thing was an icbm prototype
19:39:01 <Phantom_Hoover> Fiora, depends
19:39:11 <Bike> Phantom_Hoover: oh
19:39:21 <Phantom_Hoover> if you have 30 then it's not that big a torque and you might be able to correct with your control systems
19:39:24 <Fiora> ah
19:39:27 <kmc> yeah i thought it was an R-7 test
19:39:34 <Phantom_Hoover> that's what they did when one of the engines in the falcon 9 test failed

19:45:57 <elliott> what
19:45:59 <Bike> um.
19:46:01 <elliott> @help girl19
19:46:01 <lambdabot> girl19 wonders what "discriminating hackers" are.
19:46:04 <elliott> @girl19
19:46:04 <lambdabot> well.. I never hacked Russians
19:46:04 <elliott> @girl19
19:46:04 <lambdabot> I'm in Moscow, Russia
19:46:04 <elliott> @girl19
19:46:04 <lambdabot> I have stolen about 50 msn and yahoo accounts
19:46:04 <elliott> @girl19
19:46:04 <lambdabot> am I supposed to be frantic with terror and anxiety?
19:46:17 <Bike> y'all need a db of all these damn injokes
19:46:33 <Bike> oh hey. "This extension is now deprecated, and deprecation warnings will be generated when connections are established to databases via mysql_connect(), mysql_pconnect(), or through implicit connection: use MySQLi or PDO_MySQL instead"
19:46:36 <shachaf> elliott: hey i have a lambdabot proposal "can you guess what it is"
19:46:43 <Bike> i wonder how many security bugs that would remove
19:46:52 <kmc> it's great how there's no uniform db api in php
19:46:58 <kmc> totally different functions for mysql, postgres, etc
19:47:06 <elliott> wonder whether i should remove the unique prefix behaviour along with the specialcasing of unique spell corrections
19:47:15 <Bike> Generator is an internal class, so there shouldn't be an ability to create it by hand. However, the Generator class doesn't have a private constructor and instance of it can be created via ReflectionClass.
19:47:19 <Bike> Solution: add a private constructor for this class to prevent instantiation (like for Closure class).
19:47:22 <Bike> awesome and rad
19:47:32 <shachaf> I was thinking more along the lines of removing @girl19.
19:47:51 <Bike> Fixed bug #60097 (token_get_all fails to lex nested heredoc)
19:47:54 <shachaf> The prefix thing is OK.
19:48:19 <elliott> i was ignoring your proposal actually
19:48:26 <elliott> this is something i was already looking into!!
19:48:26 <Bike> https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=64765 these are so great
19:49:27 <Bike> ok uh, this SndToJewish thing is listed as being fixed, three different times
19:49:42 <kmc> what list are you reading
19:50:04 <Fiora> is Snd... "standard"? it looks like "sound"
19:50:07 <Bike> the changelog http://www.php.net/ChangeLog-5.php
19:50:32 <Bike> http://www.scip.ch/en/?vuldb.9021 oh my god.
19:50:40 <Bike> this is my new favorite bug
19:51:11 <Fiora> woow
19:51:25 <Fiora> that sndtojewish thing resulted in a critical exploit? geez
19:51:51 <elliott> what do you mean there are reasons not to stuff every library into the core of your language
19:52:01 <Fiora> https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=54096 geez these are really weird
19:52:39 <Bike> php has a built in julian to hebrew calendar conversion function, fiora. it is beyond weird.
19:53:04 <Fiora> I mean like I feel like I'm missing 90% of this
19:53:06 <Bike> "comparsion of incomplete DateTime causes SIGSEGV" good, good
19:53:12 <Fiora> "PHP defines -0 as an int", but wouldn't -0 just resolve to 0?
19:53:20 <Bike> not in php it wouldn't
19:53:32 <Fiora> and there's this filter function that "checks if values are ints", but if you wanted to see if a float was int, wouldn't you just do if( floor(f) == f )?
19:53:42 <Fiora> ... well I guess there's infinities and things
19:53:58 <Fiora> ... if( (float)(int)f == f )?
19:54:08 <Fiora> wow this is bad
19:54:17 <Fiora> Bike: um... explain? >_<
19:54:26 <Bike> i have no idea
19:54:33 <Bike> i don't know php, i just see endless insane bug reports
19:55:02 <Fiora> the whole "this is an interpreted language but it works differently on 32-bit and 64-bit" seems really weird too
19:55:18 <Bike> there was one bug where the put in inline amd64 assembly but didn't conditionalize it
19:55:21 <Bike> gj people
19:55:24 <Fiora> @_@
19:55:34 <kmc> Fiora: sadly ghc haskell has that too
19:55:38 <kmc> Int is platform-dependent size
19:56:17 <elliott> kmc: well ghc is primarily a compiler so depending on your interpretation of "that"
19:56:27 <elliott> though it has many traits people relate to "interpreted languages", of course
19:56:49 <Bike> isn't int platform-dependent in C
19:56:53 <kmc> yeah I meant for high level languages
19:56:54 <Fiora> does... does php have data types?
19:56:55 <kmc> Bike: yes
19:57:19 <Bike> i mean having a type that's defined to have a max that varies by platform seems fine to me
19:57:20 <elliott> the only thing worse than platform-dependent sized Int is platform-independent sized Int
19:57:40 <Bike> plus doesn't the haskell standard say it has to be at least 2^31 or whatever
19:57:47 -!- MindlessDrone has quit (Quit: MindlessDrone).
19:57:50 <Fiora> Bike: yeah, but like, it has builtin functions that work differently on 32-bit and 64-bit which seems really weird
19:57:55 <elliott> Bike: makes semantics of haskell programs much less clear, causes portability problems, severely hurts distributed computing
19:57:55 <Bike> Fiora: not as you know them. not as any of us know thelm
19:57:55 <kmc> the mandated range is just -2^29 .. 2^29-1
19:58:12 <Bike> how's it hurt distributed computing
19:58:13 <Bike> ?
19:58:21 <kmc> allowing 32-bit implementations to reserve 2 bits for tagging
19:58:39 <Bike> right
19:58:43 <elliott> Bike: because you have a single program where multiple parts of it run on heterogeneous machines
19:58:54 <elliott> so Int means different things at different points of your program
19:58:58 <elliott> and can store different values
19:59:06 <elliott> and will get messed up communicating between agents that disagree about its size
19:59:09 <Fiora> so like, for portability it's better to use Integer?
19:59:13 <elliott> so you have to completely avoid Int if you want sanity
19:59:21 <elliott> Fiora: or the fixed-size Int32/Int64
19:59:24 <Fiora> ahhh
19:59:44 <Fiora> does Int32 fit in 32-bit? or like, does it not fit because of tag bits?
19:59:57 <elliott> it's boxed :x
20:00:03 <elliott> so it is actually a pointer to a 32-bit integer
20:00:13 <Fiora> oooh
20:00:13 <elliott> (except GHC can automatically unbox it when you use it as a strict field of a data type with optimisations and blah blah blah)
20:00:16 <elliott> (so it's not quite as bad as it sounds)
20:00:19 <Fiora> is Int boxed?
20:00:24 <elliott> yeah
20:00:29 <Fiora> oh, so *everything* is boxed?
20:00:36 <shachaf> It's a pointer to a machine integer, actually -- just the operations on it truncate to 32 bits.
20:00:37 <elliott> more or less (GHC has unboxed types that are fiddly to use)
20:00:49 <elliott> if you have like a tight numerical loop though GHC will usually be able to unbox everything "at the start"
20:00:50 <shachaf> Yes, only boxed values are first-class in Haskell in general.
20:00:56 <elliott> and then work with unboxed values for the loop itself
20:00:57 <Fiora> so like, if I have an array of 1 million ints, will it be 1 million boxes, or a box with 1 million things?
20:01:07 <elliott> there are both boxed and unboxed arrays
20:01:13 <elliott> so it can be either depending on which is better
20:01:16 <shachaf> If you use an unboxed array it'll have 1 million Ints.
20:01:17 <Fiora> ahhh
20:01:26 <Fiora> and a boxed array will have 1 million unboxed ints?
20:01:40 <shachaf> No, it'll have a million boxes.
20:01:41 <elliott> 1 million boxed ints
20:01:48 <Fiora> oh. I thought ints were boxed
20:02:00 <elliott> er, I think we mixed up something at some point
20:02:02 <Bike> an "unboxed array" means a boxed array of unboxed things, probably
20:02:04 <shachaf> "(un)boxed array" means it's an array of (un)boxed things.
20:02:04 <Fiora> ahhh
20:02:08 <elliott> right
20:02:13 <Fiora> so an unboxed array of 1m ints is 4 megabytes
20:02:16 <Fiora> (on 32-bit)
20:02:17 <elliott> an unboxed array of Ints knows what Ints are a box around
20:02:20 <Fiora> and a boxed one would be 8 megabytes?
20:02:20 <kmc> plus epsilon
20:02:21 <elliott> and stores that instead
20:02:34 <Bike> Fiora: depending on sizes of boxes etc.
20:02:35 <elliott> Fiora: well, boxed values have like additional pointers in addition to the actual data they store
20:02:36 <shachaf> Probably more than 8 megabytes...
20:02:43 <Bike> boxed arrays can have lazy values can't they
20:02:47 <elliott> to facilitate lazy evaluation and such
20:02:53 <kmc> and it means access has a lot more indirection in a boxed array
20:03:01 <kmc> Bike: right
20:03:06 <shachaf> I think a boxed Int takes two machine words, and the pointer in the array takes an additional machine word.
20:03:11 <elliott> (fwiw, advantage of boxed arrays is that they can store everything, whereas unboxed arrays need to know things about what they store, and you can store thunks (unfinished computations) in boxed arrays, whereas in unboxed arrays you can only store evaluated results, so no fancy laziness tricks)
20:03:13 <kmc> every element is a pointer to a heap object, which can be a thunk
20:03:23 <Fiora> oh, boxed values have more than just the value itself plus a pointer to it?
20:03:31 <Bike> well since this is haskell
20:03:35 <Bike> there are lazy values
20:03:48 <Fiora> ah
20:03:55 <Bike> which like kmc said are thunky
20:03:57 <elliott> right it's important to note that an Int value might be a pointer to *some code*
20:04:00 <elliott> that you haven't evaluated yet
20:04:08 <elliott> but an unboxed integer is just a plain old integer
20:04:13 <kmc> Fiora: a 'boxed value' is a heap object, or a pointer to one. heap objects have a uniform structure, the first word is always a pointer to an 'info table'
20:04:24 <kmc> and then they have zero or more data fields which can have different sizes
20:04:33 <kmc> the uniformity is what allows polymorphic code to work
20:04:41 <Fiora> ah... so it'd be at least 12 megabytes
20:04:43 <kmc> you can force evaluation of a heap object without knowing its type
20:04:44 <Fiora> minus laziness?
20:04:46 <Bike> elliott: but uh, when you say can store everything, they're uniformly typed anyway aren't they
20:05:01 <Fiora> I am probably looking at this totally wrong and thinking of haskell as if it was like C <.<
20:05:03 <shachaf> Unless some of the Ints are shared, anyway.
20:05:10 <elliott> you might find the STG machine paper interesting if you're interested in the details of how this stuff works, though I think it's fairly different in GHC nowadays (in particular their "spineless tagless G-machine" has tags???)
20:05:14 <Bike> yeah you can't really reason about storage very well, can you?
20:05:20 <elliott> Bike: yeah but I mean you can make an Array a for any a
20:05:22 <shachaf> Perhaps http://spl.smugmug.com/Humor/Lambdacats/13227630_j2MHcg/960526161_XwKHSBM#!i=960526161&k=XwKHSBM&lb=1&s=L can clarify.
20:05:25 <kmc> it doesn't have the kind of tags they're talking about not having in the STG paper
20:05:32 <elliott> whereas like an unboxed array will require some condition on what "a" is so it knows how to store it unboxed
20:05:33 <kmc> GHC doesn't use tag bits to distinguish pointers from integers
20:05:39 <Bike> somebody here linked me to a paper where whatshisname was like "you can reason about space! weird, huh"
20:05:41 <kmc> it does use tag bits on pointers to mark things which are already known to be evaluated
20:06:02 <elliott> it's not impossible to reason about space usage of Haskell programs, but it's definitely less simple than in C or whatever
20:06:44 <Bike> there's also sharing, like if you store 4+7 into an array a million times it'll all use the same thunk?
20:06:47 <Bike> right?
20:06:54 <elliott> assuming you store the "same" 4+7
20:06:54 <kmc> into a boxed array yeah
20:07:02 <elliott> it'll store the same pointer a bajillion times
20:07:04 <kmc> let x = 4+7 in listArray [0,1000] (repeat x)
20:07:32 <elliott> 4+7 is sort of a bad example since it might get like constant folded and stuff but the principle, yeah
20:07:35 <Bike> oh, does ghc not pick out common subexpressions like that
20:07:42 <elliott> it does it very conservatively
20:07:47 <elliott> because you can introduce bad space leaks that way
20:07:49 <shachaf> elliott: Well, it'll get shared whether it's an unevaluated thunk or not.
20:07:49 <Bike> yeah i figured but it's easier to say than (foo y)
20:08:13 <elliott> shachaf: does GHC not like preallocate a bunch of Ints for small values?
20:08:14 <Bike> well anyway, to sum up, fiora, php is dumb
20:08:18 <elliott> which would distort the idea
20:09:14 <Bike> Fixed bug #43177 (Errors in eval()'ed code produce status code 500).
20:09:37 <Fiora> okay...
20:09:41 <Fiora> Bike: um, unrelatedly, http://eprint.iacr.org/2013/404.pdf
20:09:53 <kmc> sharing is p. cool. in Haskell if you implement a binary tree with an insert function, in the most obvious naive way, you get a cool persistent data structure where new versions of the tree share nodes with old ones
20:10:04 <Bike> Fiora: wassat.
20:10:21 <kmc> and this isn't some crazy compiler optimization either, it's p. much fundamental to the language's data model
20:10:21 <shachaf> kmc: that requires changing your notion of "obvious"
20:10:25 <Fiora> it's a super lightweight block cipher
20:10:39 <Bike> ooh
20:10:50 -!- sprocklem has joined.
20:11:01 <Fiora> "With regard to throughput, we note that the fastest reported software implementation of AES-128 available on an Atmel 8-bit microcontroller has a cost of 125 cycles/byte, and uses 1912 bytes of flash and 432 bytes of SRAM [BOSC10]. For a slight decrease in speed, the same
20:11:05 <Fiora> implementers offer a more balanced implementation with a cost of 135 cycles/byte, using 1912 bytes of flash and 176 bytes of SRAM. Our high-speed Speck128/128 implementation has comparable throughput, at 139 cycles/byte, but uses only 388 bytes of flash and 256 bytes of SRAM."
20:11:24 <kmc> flash
20:11:30 <Fiora> they have a hardware optimized one and a software optimized one
20:11:33 <shachaf> > 139/2
20:11:34 <Fiora> the hardware optimized one can be done in like, ~1300 gates
20:11:34 <lambdabot> 69.5
20:11:41 <shachaf> that's only 69.5 bicycles/byte!
20:11:45 <Fiora> ... shachaf XD
20:11:53 <Bike> good rate.
20:12:13 <Bike> god, half these bugs are about segfaults
20:12:37 <kmc> almost like the PHP interpreter is a C program written by idiots
20:12:44 <Bike> "Fixed bug #63369 ((un)serialize() leaves dangling pointers, causes crashes)"
20:13:43 <Bike> Fixed bug #62896 ("DateTime->modify('+0 days')" modifies DateTime object) <-- what.
20:14:56 <kmc> also laziness is important if you want good performance from persistent data structures
20:15:10 <Bike> alright "segfault" is in here 276 times
20:16:14 <Bike> "fault", 483.
20:16:21 <Bike> that has a lot of "default" though i guess whatever

21:12:17 <elliott> lol
21:19:08 <Taneb> Right.
21:19:57 <Taneb> Work done is difference in kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is mass times velocity is force times distance. These are both measured in Joules
21:20:35 <Fiora> Bike: see, you just have to have *plush* touhous
21:20:39 <Fiora> then you can reach them whenever !
21:20:40 <Taneb> Power is energy by time, it is measure in Js^-1 or Watts
21:21:06 <Bike> are you taking a kinetics class
21:21:18 <Bike> Fiora: what if the plush is kidnapped
21:21:25 <Taneb> Bike, hopefully past tense. The exam is in less than 11 hours
21:21:50 <Fiora> nobody's kidnapped mine!~
21:22:15 <Fiora> https://room208.org/booru/data/9160f5fe9e4332617661b5d4f548dcd4.jpg seee they're all safe and sound
21:22:36 <Taneb> Whoa, power is also force times velocity?
21:23:28 <Phantom_Hoover> probably
21:23:29 <Phantom_Hoover> yes
21:23:36 <Bike> Fiora: i'm pretty sure there are so many you could easily lose one
21:23:37 <fizzie> THIS SUMMER... THE COCKS COLLIDE (it was a video)
21:23:38 <Bike> !!!!
21:24:08 <Fiora> I haven't lost any!
21:24:10 <Fiora> I keep good track of my friends
21:24:59 <Bike> then why is there a meduka there who did she eat
21:24:59 <shachaf> what about non-plush friends
21:25:02 <Phantom_Hoover> that sure is, uh
21:25:03 <Phantom_Hoover> organised
21:25:04 <shachaf> plush or minush
21:25:25 <Fiora> I'm only responsible for friends who live in my apartment <.<;
21:25:45 <shachaf> Fiora: How often do they double?
21:25:49 <Fiora> ummmm
21:25:56 <Taneb> And potential energy is mass times height times the gravitational constant
21:25:59 <Fiora> let's see. I had like half as many ~12-16 months ago ish?
21:26:07 * constant looks at Taneb
21:26:10 -!- constant has changed nick to trout.
21:26:20 <Taneb> Sorry, trout
21:26:41 <shachaf> Fiora: OK, so let's say it's like Moore's law.
21:27:13 <Taneb> shachaf, it seems a little quicker than Moore's law
21:27:24 <Fiora> I think it's more like an S curve?
21:27:34 <Bike> what is the optimal plushie count
21:27:55 <Fiora> I'm... not sure there is one in particular?
21:27:55 <shachaf> Bike: one more than whatever you have right now hth
21:27:56 <Taneb> Where the hell is Hitchin
21:28:20 <Bike> well you said s curve
21:28:31 <Bike> what's the asymptote!
21:28:46 <Fiora> well I'm mostly running out, I don't have many touhou ones I don't have I think
21:28:49 <Fiora> and most are like, permanently out of sto k
21:28:55 <Fiora> there's new ones but only like, every reitaisai
21:28:59 <Bike> i see like three reimus
21:29:09 <Fiora> two!
21:29:10 <Bike> can't you trade two of them for a more obscure touhou
21:29:23 <Phantom_Hoover> could you fashion one into another
21:29:36 <Fiora> you can make custom plushies but it's a lot of sewing work and stuff
21:29:58 <Phantom_Hoover> i'm thinking more... cosmetic surger
21:29:58 <Phantom_Hoover> y
21:30:27 <Bike> marisa -> maribel let's make it happen
21:31:09 <Fiora> I'd have to make new clothes and stuff <:
21:31:11 <fizzie> I remember something about http://www.geocities.jp/igarashi_lab/plushie/index-e.html from a SIGGRAPH.
21:32:00 <Fiora> I totally should have gotten all the madoka plushies when they were still in stock though
21:32:26 <nortti> I'm away for an hour and people start talking about touhou-plushies, what is this?
21:32:47 <Phantom_Hoover> Fiora happened

21:34:00 <shachaf> Fiora: There are four people in ##fiora now!
21:34:05 <Fiora> nortti: https://room208.org/booru/data/9160f5fe9e4332617661b5d4f548dcd4.jpg um, I posted this
21:34:13 <shachaf> You wouldn't want us to talk about you behind your back, would you?
21:34:25 <nortti> oh wow, that's alot
21:34:30 <Bike> wow that doesn't sound like a creepy threat at all shachaf
21:34:37 <Fiora> shachaaaf
21:34:37 <nortti> :D
21:34:47 <Phantom_Hoover> ##fiora: now w/ fiora
21:34:49 <shachaf> Bike: :-(
21:34:59 <Fiora> it's about four years of accumulated plushies! they're good for filling the rest of a queen size bed
21:35:00 <shachaf> Fiora: no threat intended
21:35:02 <kmc> wow
21:35:16 <Bike> can you just make the bed out of plushies
21:35:27 <Phantom_Hoover> why do you need a queen size bed! double beds are bourgeoisie
21:35:33 <Bike> uh for all the plushies
21:35:34 <Bike> hth
21:35:50 <Fiora> it was like $50 or $100 extra? and I like being able to roll around and sprawl out and stuff
21:35:57 <Fiora> and I kind of have a bad tendency to somehow steal all the blankets
21:36:03 <Bike> from yourself
21:36:06 <Fiora> yes
21:36:11 <elliott> Phantom_Hoover: i think you will find that big beds are the best, hth.
21:36:20 <Fiora> elliott knows his stuff
21:36:23 <Bike> take that, yourself!!
21:36:23 <kmc> it's true
21:36:45 <Fiora> I can basically lie down on it in any direction and fit
21:36:47 <Phantom_Hoover> i slept in a tiny bunk bed since i was like 3 and you don't hear me complaining!
21:36:51 <kmc> also it's hard to fit more than two people in a bed smaller than a queen
21:36:53 <Bike> check your short privilege, fiora
21:36:54 <shachaf> Fiora: have you considered getting a cat hth
21:37:01 <Fiora> I have! I'm also allergic
21:37:04 <Fiora> but I stlil want a cat
21:37:12 <Bike> get a pet you're not allergic to then
21:37:12 <shachaf> have you considered that life without a cat is no life at all
21:37:16 <Bike> like a tarantula
21:37:19 <Bike> or seven
21:37:20 <Bike> hundred
21:37:21 <Fiora> I'm... not good with sipders
21:37:23 <Fiora> *spiders
21:37:23 <kmc> though i think it's hard for more than two people to /sleep/ in the same bed, period
21:37:29 <Bike> how about a snake
21:37:38 <Fiora> Bike: you tall people can like, get a king or something anyways
21:37:58 <Bike> at school orientation there was one guy tall enough that he didn't fit in the dorm beds
21:38:01 <Bike> p. tragic
21:38:03 <shachaf> kmc: Reading _The Door into Summer_ made me want to live with cats again. :-(
21:38:14 <Taneb> Fiora, I have a double bed but I curl up small
21:38:14 <Bike> (he was like seven foot probably)
21:38:15 <kmc> california king
21:38:27 <shachaf> kmc: are you going to become king of california
21:38:30 <kmc> doubtful
21:38:34 <elliott> what's the biggest bed in the universe #drugz
21:38:36 <shachaf> i'll vote for you for king hth
21:38:58 <shachaf> elliott: the universe is my bed hth
21:39:07 <kmc> shachaf: that's not how king works
21:39:11 <kmc> well sometimes but rarely
21:39:17 <Fiora> plushies are good though, I tend to cling to them in my sleep instead of the blankets
21:39:22 <Fiora> though sometimes Iflail and knock them onto the floor to
21:39:37 <shachaf> kmc: when i'm king i'll change how king works
21:39:44 <Taneb> I could probably quite comfortably sleep in this spinny office chair
21:39:48 <elliott> im googling "huge bed" now #drugz
21:39:49 <Phantom_Hoover> Fiora, do you have to put them back or you feel guilty
21:40:01 <Fiora> I don't actually leave them all on there all the time <.< that was just for the picture
21:40:07 <elliott> these beds arent very huge
21:40:09 <Fiora> it's usually a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle messier
21:40:40 <elliott> these are just fairly big beds
21:40:43 <elliott> come ON google
21:40:47 <Phantom_Hoover> what if you got a trampoline
21:40:50 <Bike> i'm pretty sure i should make autonomous plushies
21:40:51 <Phantom_Hoover> and put a sheet on it
21:40:55 <Bike> so they put themselves back on the bed
21:41:00 <Bike> other advantages: easy to film horror movies
21:41:01 <fizzie> Are there official definitions of what these "queen" and "king" sizes are?
21:41:05 <Fiora> so like, toy story?
21:41:07 <kmc> fizzie: yes
21:41:14 <Fiora> fizzie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bed_sizes#Standard_North_American_sizes
21:41:16 <Bike> like toy story but soft
21:41:23 <elliott> why is there furry porn and a picture of some socks. this is the worst image search ever
21:41:27 <Bike> and possibly with jetpacks, because climbing is a pretty hard behavior.
21:41:28 <elliott> im going to try "gigantic bed" instead
21:41:31 <kmc> fizzie: also did you see my terrifying fact about RBMK reactors
21:41:35 <kmc> and did you already know
21:41:46 <Bike> terrifying RBMK fact: RBMK is real
21:41:46 <elliott> oh it suggested "biggest bed in the world" lets go with that
21:41:46 <fizzie> Fiora: Aw, no ISO beds.
21:42:06 <elliott> http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/05/07/article-1178094-04D70DB8000005DC-311_634x466.jpg now THATS what i call a big bed
21:42:07 <Taneb> Isn't there an ISO standard on how to make tea?
21:42:10 <fizzie> kmc: I did not see any fact about RBMK reactors at all.
21:42:20 <Bike> elliott: but big enough?? imo, no.
21:42:21 <Taneb> elliott, that's what I call dailymail.co.uk
21:42:22 <Phantom_Hoover> elliott, i don't think that's a proper matress
21:42:23 <kmc> fizzie: there are four operational RBMK reactors about 230 km from Helsinki
21:42:32 <shachaf> is the daily mail good
21:42:39 <kmc> no it is the opposite of good
21:43:02 <kmc> Taneb: yes ISO 3103, although it's not designed to produce the most delicious tea, just a standard tea for comparative purposes
21:43:34 <fizzie> kmc: Are they in St. Petersburg or something?
21:43:56 <elliott> kmc: are you serious
21:44:09 <elliott> The method consists in extracting of soluble substances in dried tea leaf, containing in a porcelain or earthenware pot, by means of freshly boiling water, pouring of the liquor into a white porcelain or earthenware bowl, examination of the organoleptic properties of the infused leaf, and of the liquor with or without milk, or both.
21:44:14 <elliott> oh my god
21:44:19 <Taneb> Daily Mail is the newspaper that says "life is getting worse! porn everywhere! immigrants everywhere stealing our jobs! cancer everywhere! foxes everywhere! too many badgers! not enough badgers! immigrants buying our factories and giving us jobs!"
21:44:29 <elliott> The work was the winner of the parodic Ig Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999.
21:44:31 <fizzie> elliott: Unsurprisingly it's originally a British Standard.
21:44:32 <kmc> fizzie: yeah nearby
21:45:02 <kmc> immigrants stealing our badger cancer
21:45:07 <elliott> @tell mnoqy attn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3103
21:45:07 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
21:45:15 <kmc> http://kill-or-cure.herokuapp.com/
21:45:21 <Taneb> Anyway, goodnight!
21:45:24 <shachaf> elliott: http://www.keepbanderabeautiful.org/earth-hospital-bed-i.jpg
21:45:36 -!- Taneb has quit (Quit: Leaving).
21:45:37 <elliott> thats a pretty big bed
21:45:43 <Bike> looks uncomfortable though.
21:46:07 <fizzie> "400 - Bad Request" that's a "bad", not "bed". (I don't know why happen.)
21:46:37 <elliott> no finns allowed
21:46:42 <elliott> alt. no speech recognisers
21:47:00 <fizzie> It seems to be so.
21:47:42 <Bike> wait. i recognize speech.
21:47:54 <elliott> you're a bicycle.
21:47:57 <shachaf> elliott: uh i'm a finn
21:48:00 <shachaf> elliott: checkmate
21:50:05 <fizzie> I believe our common bed widths here are 80, 90, 120, 160 and 180 cm.
21:50:56 <elliott> ideally you would have a room that's just all bed
21:51:00 <Fiora> those numbers make more sense than ours <.<
21:51:04 <elliott> i don't really see much of a use for non-bed areas of a room
21:51:13 <Fiora> but you need an area for your dresser, a hamper
21:51:16 <Fiora> an area to change clothes, a mirror
21:51:27 <Fiora> maybe a nightstand and alarm clock and stuff
21:51:29 <elliott> these sound like less efficient uses of space than more bed
21:51:36 <Fiora> and like, a pathway to exit the room and maybe a bathroom
21:51:36 <elliott> I guess you could make one of the walls out of mirror
21:51:45 <fizzie> Fiora: The 120 cm size is kind of a weird, I think, since it's really quite wide for one, but also quite narrow for two. (Still, it's not *that* wide.)
21:52:04 <Bike> what if you just replaced the floor with a mattress.
21:52:09 <elliott> Bike: this is my thinking yes
21:52:14 <Fiora> I wonder why the "twin" is the smallest size
21:52:23 <Fiora> Like, fitting two people on a twin sounds a little uncomfortable
21:52:46 -!- conehead has joined.
21:53:14 <elliott> fitting two people in any bed is kind of tenuous imo
21:53:18 <fizzie> Also I recently saw the layouts of the apartments they're building nearby, and the smallest ones have bedrooms where the bed fills the entire width of the room; there are separate doors out from the bedroom (into the living room area) from both sides of the ends of the room, but you can't go around the bed without going to another room.
21:53:33 <Fiora> I could probably fit 2 or 3 of me in my bed
21:53:37 <shachaf> http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/27810/why-do-americans-call-single-beds-twin-beds
21:53:50 <Bike> Fiora: but do you
21:53:54 <shachaf> Fiora: hey are you doing cloning now
21:54:09 <elliott> the question is why you would want to
21:54:10 <Fiora> well that's kind of the thing I don't have a cloning machine
21:54:22 <Bike> haven't you ever read cavlin + hobbes
21:54:22 <shachaf> can i have a Fiora clone
21:54:26 <shachaf> ==Bike
21:54:34 <Fiora> having a friend would be nice
21:54:43 <fizzie> Our current bed is 160 cm, except you could argue it's not, since in reality it's two 80 cm beds with an extra mattress (160 cm wide, ~5 cm thick) on top to get rid of the gap in the middle.
21:54:49 <shachaf> Fiora: you would be too shy to make friends with yourself
21:55:05 <Bike> elliott: flanking maneuevers, sleeping in shifts to avoid being snuck up on
21:57:29 <Fiora> I'm not sure... maybe you're right, shachaf ...
21:58:16 <shachaf> i mean, it would be Fiora^2 shyness
21:59:35 <Fiora> at least I'd know a priori that she was just as much an emotional wreck as I am!
22:00:43 <shachaf> do you feel more comfortable around people who are emotional wrecks?
22:01:02 <Fiora> I don't really know
22:01:07 <Bike> well, everybody's an emotional wreck, so that works out pretty conveniently.
22:01:31 <shachaf> Bike: ChanServ isn't an emotional wreck!
22:02:33 <Bike> have you even talked to chanserv
22:02:40 <Bike> chanserv isn't just a slab of meat
22:03:30 <shachaf> what is ChanServ a slab of
22:03:41 <Bike> slabs of meat.
22:04:07 <shachaf> elliott: i failed to find a bed bigger than that one
22:04:40 <Fiora> hmm. I'd have someone to talk with assembly code and stuff about
22:05:32 <Bike> if i had clones i'd specialize, so that we would have different things to talk about.
22:05:45 <Bike> but still keep some genericism because doing one thing is boring.
22:05:46 <Fiora> yeah, that would be pretty nice
22:05:47 <shachaf> you can talk with us about that!! hth
22:05:58 <Fiora> like if I can have a fiora who knows all kinds of stuff in other topics and she can teach me lots of things
22:06:16 <Fiora> like neurobiolo-- oh, wait, I already have one of those :3
22:06:19 <shachaf> Bike: if you had a clone you would probably fight to the death "you're just that aggressive"
22:06:25 <shachaf> neurobiolo++
22:07:13 <Bike> Fiora: alas i'm not as cute or plushful.
22:07:24 <Bike> also yeah i'd probably have at least like, nine clones learn german swordfighting.
22:07:26 <Fiora> pff you are pretty cute <.<
22:07:44 <Bike> "but plushful, nah, i OWN you on that front motherfucker"
22:08:50 <Fiora> geez plushieful has nothing to do with -me-
22:09:29 <Bike> then how do you explain allegations that your bed is filled with plush
22:09:37 <shachaf> checkmate
22:09:46 <Fiora> but like if I had a friend that friend coujld enjoy the plushies too
22:10:34 <Bike> well plush is a universal enjoyedment
22:12:11 <Phantom_Hoover> german swordfighting as opposed to
22:13:28 <Bike> ...all the o fucking serious
22:13:30 <Bike> er.
22:13:35 <Bike> all the other kinds of swordfighting?
22:13:57 <Phantom_Hoover> is there a specifically german kind though
22:14:09 <shachaf> germane swordfighting hth
22:14:16 <shachaf> @wn germane
22:14:17 <lambdabot> *** "germane" wn "WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006)"
22:14:17 <lambdabot> germane
22:14:17 <lambdabot> adj 1: relevant and appropriate; "he asks questions that are
22:14:17 <lambdabot> germane and central to the issue"
22:14:29 <shachaf> hmm from now on we say "germane" instead of "on-topic"
22:14:31 <Phantom_Hoover> germane, the methane analogue with germanium
22:14:46 <Bike> Phantom_Hoover: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_school_of_fencing
22:14:50 <Bike> don't you read gunnerkrigg!
22:15:28 <Phantom_Hoover> no
22:15:35 <Phantom_Hoover> i gave up on webcomics

22:18:24 <Bike> bikes don't make that noise >:
22:18:50 <shachaf> they do when you transmogrify them
22:21:30 <fizzie> Ooh, fancy: a 7-plug extension cord, configured such that one hole is a "master", and when you turn off the device connected to that hole, it cuts off four other holes; the idea being that when you turn off your TV, the other related things like externally powered subwoofers and whatnot will also automatically power off.
22:21:53 <Bike> nice.
