00:27:06 * oerjan fetched an apple to chase away the doctors
00:27:33 <shachaf> oerjan: apples are very dangerous when you're sick
00:27:53 <oerjan> oh dear
00:29:01 <Fiora> phrase overheard at work: "they have to do the earthquake-bracing for the racks"
00:29:07 <Fiora> california is wonderful
00:31:23 <shachaf> kmc: did the wires end up catching it
00:32:26 <kmc> :_;
00:32:31 <kmc> shachafffffff
00:32:34 <kmc> this behavior is v. confusing
00:32:55 <shachaf> should i stop
00:33:07 <kmc> Fiora: I gotta figure out how to do that for the shelves in my room
00:33:21 <shachaf> i don't like making that k. of joke in every channel
00:33:34 <shachaf> maybe i'd be better off if i didn't make it in any channel............................
00:33:39 <kmc> shachaf: well I don't mind personally when it's re: a convo I'm in, but I figure others might mind (kmc the concern troll)
00:33:47 <shachaf> oh
00:33:54 <shachaf> hm
00:34:02 <elliott> do they actually have earthquakes you can feel in california
00:34:03 <Fiora> kmc: I don't remember like any actual earthquakes here
00:34:07 <elliott> somehow I cannot wrap my mind around this concept
00:34:15 <Fiora> elliott: I've felt two in recent memory (the past like, 3 years)
00:34:33 <kmc> I felt an earthquake in 3 years of living in Boston and never in 4 years of living in LA!
00:34:39 <Fiora> one was when the office I was in was on a higher floor (4th floor), so the building waved a bit even though the earthquake was small
00:34:40 <shachaf> kmc: do you mean people in this channel or in the other channel
00:34:43 <kmc> this one
00:35:04 <Fiora> the other one was literally directly under me at home, and very close to the surface, so it was like a sudden pulse (instead of shaking), and wasn't like, big or anything, just surprising
00:35:09 <shachaf> well, i figure it's no more confusing than e.g. zzo38
00:35:11 <Fiora> and weird since it felt nothing like a quake
00:35:27 <kmc> Fiora: my friend was worried because his apt building in SF is built on fill, so he looked up the engineering diagrams and it has 200 ft pilings down into bedrock
00:35:34 <Fiora> @____@
00:35:34 <lambdabot> Unknown command, try @list
00:35:39 <kmc> so if the big one hits, the ground will liquify but he'll just be up on stilts
00:35:52 <Fiora> that's amazing
00:36:10 <kmc> also a BART tunnel runs thorugh the Hayward Fault and the plan for if a train is in the tunnel during an earthquake is basically "fuck"
00:36:22 <elliott> waving buildings is incredibly terrifying
00:36:32 <elliott> they should, like, nail them to the ground harder.
00:36:36 <kmc> like they have no plan... it would cost more to fix than the expected value of lives lost
00:36:39 <elliott> especially the skyscrapers.
00:36:44 <Fiora> elliott: the waving keeps them safer
00:36:48 <kmc> and while this sounds kind of terrible it's impossible to have a civilization without some logic of this form
00:36:53 <shachaf> elliott: imo nail the skyscrapers to the sky
00:36:56 <Fiora> like trees wave in wind
00:36:58 <shachaf> "common sense"
00:37:03 <elliott> Fiora: but it's scary
00:37:09 <shachaf> who ever heard of a skyquake
00:37:10 <Fiora> it's a little scary? but it doesn't wave much
00:37:18 <elliott> comfort is so much more important than safety ;_;
00:37:42 <elliott> okay how about nail the buildings down harder but also give everyone parachutes or something

01:20:00 <Bike> http://members.trainweb.com/bedt/indloco/crrnjbxtehcrossover.jpg i'm scared kmc
01:20:04 <shachaf> it looks like you at least have to get ""special permission"" to get a two-letter .fi
01:21:39 <ion> kmc, bike: I like the filenames.
01:21:57 <ion> shachaf: Yeah, only two- and three-letter .fi names are allowed.
01:22:19 <shachaf> ?
01:22:28 <ion> Just joking. What are you asking? :-P
01:22:29 <shachaf> oh
01:22:42 <shachaf> i tried to register in.fi but it was rejected due to being a forbidden name or something
01:22:55 <shachaf> you have heh.fi so i thought maybe you know the regulations
01:23:01 <ion> I think they disallow <other tld>.fi
01:23:07 <shachaf> oh.......hmm
01:23:40 <shachaf> A quick whois suggests that s6.fi is "Domain not found" and in.fi is "Domain not available"
01:23:44 <shachaf> So maybe that's true.
01:23:55 <shachaf> I read the PDF and it was kind of vague about this.
01:30:36 <kmc> shachaf: is it bad that I read that as ~"special permission"
01:30:38 <shachaf> In addition, certain words referred to in the Act (e.g. limited company, trademark) or abbreviations (e.g. oy, fi, com) cannot be registered as domain names.

02:16:07 <ion> aye
02:16:42 <ion> When getting my domain, i didn’t find any available two-letter one i would have preferred to the three-letter one i got.
02:16:42 <shachaf> I guess you went through this before acquiring heh.fi?
02:16:48 <elliott> I should re-figure out what one-letter-plus-ccTLD domains are still available one of these days
02:17:01 <zzo38> Sometimes my Dungeons&Dragons recordings is updated, although perhaps I should use a more consistent format like you have, so that you can filter on it if you want to access it.

03:36:32 <Bike> "really nasty things, like function calls"
03:37:26 * Fiora is bad and hasn't actually watched it <.<
03:38:01 <Bike> well, basically he put up "33 ops/cycle" but then explained that they're MIMD operations, they have to be independent, and it depends on the distribution of hardware on the chip (like, not 33 adds)
03:39:43 <Fiora> so it's just like typical x86 type of thing, except the architecture is designed to make more than just a couple per cycle feasible?
03:39:55 <Fiora> except like, without VLIWness?
03:39:58 <Bike> "typical x86 type of thing"?
03:40:17 <Fiora> ummmm multiple execution units and the ability to execute multiple instructions as long as they're of different types?
03:40:21 <Fiora> sorry, I wasn't clear
03:40:28 <Bike> oh, that seemed to be the intention, yes
03:40:55 <Bike> you s hould probably just listen to the talk instead of to me misinterpreting everything
03:40:59 <Fiora> I should
03:41:19 <Bike> haswell has "nearly 500 possible sources" of operands, gosh
03:43:39 <Bike> he says routing sources to sinks is half of haswell's power use ._.
03:44:55 <Fiora> it's not surprising :/ I mean like OOE is basically a bunch of queues
03:46:11 <Bike> he says 500 sources is mostly for rename registers, so get rid of those i guess
03:46:27 <Fiora> yeah, that's the physical register file
03:47:24 <shachaf> i always thought OOE was implemented with magic dust

13:28:48 <fizzie> Ow.
13:32:01 <fizzie> I bought a graphics card (special Assembly discount deal), and it came with... let's see... "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist Digital Deluxe Edition" and "Metro: Last Light".
13:32:21 <fizzie> I have no idea what these are (except that they're games), but they're "not for resale".
13:34:18 <boily> ~duck splinter cell
13:34:18 <metasepia> Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is a series of award-winning action-adventure stealth video games the first of which was released in 2002, and their tie-in novels.
13:34:25 <boily> ~duck metro last night
13:34:25 <metasepia> The Legend of Zelda HD Experience is an upcoming action game video game for the Wii U, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 which is being developed by 4A Games.
13:34:37 <fizzie> Uh.
13:34:38 <boily> hthth.
13:34:46 <fizzie> I am not entirely sure that last one is helpful.
13:35:19 <fizzie> Unless "Metro: Last Night" is the same thing as The Legend of Zelda HD Experience.
13:36:05 <boily> well, the 4A Games part is correct.
13:36:20 <Fiora> splinter cell is like this long running series of spy game things? I think I played a tiny bit of one a long time ago, you could check the reviews on this one?
13:36:34 <fizzie> I don't really like shooting. Do these games feature any shooting?
13:37:00 <Fiora> they're both shooters
13:37:12 <boily> there is shooting, and all the gibs and splatter and gore and flying random fleshy bits.
13:38:08 <fizzie> Bleh. I'm not good at things where you have to do a thing.
13:38:27 <fizzie> But it's "not for resale", so they'll presumably shoot me if I try to sell them to someone.
13:38:32 <Fiora> (of like, the man-shoot variety, not the glowy-bullet-dodging variety)
13:38:51 <fizzie> Fiora: You mean, they're not shmups.
13:40:04 <Fiora> yeah
13:40:13 <fizzie> Also: the #esoteric presence bitmap visualization thing I made is not draggable on Android-touchscreen-Chrome.
13:40:19 <Fiora> sorry, I kinda just wanted an excuse to say glowy-bullet-dodging.
13:40:45 <fizzie> It's done with mousedown/mousemove/mouseup eventry, I guess that doesn't really happen here.
13:41:13 <boily> there's a map?
13:41:45 <fizzie> boily: A bitmap. You know, it's a map in time.
13:41:55 <fizzie> And "presence" means "being on-channel".
13:42:13 <boily> oh.

13:42:39 <fizzie> You can check yourself out on there.
13:42:50 <boily> woah.
13:42:58 <fizzie> I only see up to 2009 and can't drag. :/
13:43:32 <Fiora> oooh, that's kind of cool.
13:43:59 <fizzie> Fiora: We can see when you sleep.
13:44:11 <fizzie> Also there seem to be some gaps.
13:45:29 <boily> elliott's traces are scary.
13:45:40 <fizzie> boily: As is only appropriate.
13:50:10 <Fiora> fizzie: when I sleep is not quite a secret :p though I also nap a lot too
13:50:47 <fizzie> Fiora: The naps would need to be quite regular in order to be visible.
13:51:37 <Fiora> yeah, I guess so
13:51:52 <Fiora> oh, you can add multiple layers. is this a who-is-whose-alt tool? :P
13:52:47 <fizzie> I think it was already used to prove kmc is Taneb, or something like that.
13:53:50 <fizzie> In re layers, the blending is kinda wrong, so it's best to put a dark-ish color like red on the bottom, and a bright one (like turquoise) on top.

15:02:55 <Roujo> fizzie: Oh. Sorry =P

15:03:56 <Fiora> maybe Deewiant is trying to figure out which type of fizzie you are
15:03:59 <Fiora> like, a coke? pepsi?

15:05:42 <Roujo> It's funny how systems are always either nominal or off-the-charts
15:07:08 <Jafet> Why use nominal systems when you can use significant ones.
15:08:02 <Fiora> *beep* this is Fiora v1.24 -- all systems kind of nominal, but needs food *beep*
15:11:19 <fizzie> Ooh, we've a post-1 version here.
15:14:51 <Fiora> yes, that's because I'm old'
15:16:09 <fizzie> I'm "old" too, and still a prerelease.
15:16:26 <fizzie> That said, someone should version oerjan too.

20:08:57 <zzo38> Is there any strmove command in any C?
20:09:24 <Bike> what's that, strcpy + free?
20:09:33 <shachaf> Like memmove except for strcpy?
20:09:36 <shachaf> (I hope not.)
20:09:56 <zzo38> shachaf: Yes that is what I mean.
20:10:39 <Bike> so... the source and dest can overlap?
20:12:02 <zzo38> You could still use memmove for that but if there was strmove that would work too.
20:12:33 <Bike> so what's strmove for then.
20:13:11 <zzo38> Just like you could use memcpy instead of strcpy if you use strlen, but you could make it not require strlen if you use strcpy or strmove
20:14:14 <Taneb> Huh
20:14:20 <Taneb> Apparently my bank card expired in March
20:15:23 <shachaf> zzo38: I don't think you get the same benefit, though.
20:15:30 -!- quintopia has joined.
20:15:37 <zzo38> shachaf: What benefit?
20:16:42 <shachaf> Well, with strcpy, you only have to iterate over the string once, whereas with strlen+memcpy you'd have to do it twice.
20:17:42 <boily> it's only a string, and it shouldn't be very long. besides, iterating over it twice still means the overall procedure is O(n).
20:18:06 <shachaf> O(now I see)
20:18:18 <olsner> if I remember someone's benchmark correctly, strlen+memcpy is often faster than strcpy, so that might not be much of a benefit
20:18:46 <shachaf> If strlen+memcpy is faster than strcpy, then strcpy should be implemented as strlen+memcpy, clearly.
20:19:30 <olsner> I guess people thought anything with a single pass would so *obviously* be faster they didn't bother to check
20:20:05 <zzo38> Yes I do mean that if you had a strmove then you wouldn't have to iterate it twice like that.
20:20:06 <kmc> is that because memcpy can copy in bigger blocks?
20:20:16 <zzo38> And it might be long; don't assume it isn't?
20:20:22 <boily> someone should create an algorithm in O(1/n).
20:20:46 <zzo38> (If strlen+memcpy is faster than strcpy then yes it should be implemented like that instead)
20:21:04 <olsner> kmc: perhaps that and generally more attention being spent to optimization of memcpy
20:21:24 <boily> zzo38: a long string becomes a rope.
20:22:54 <zzo38> No, a string could be any data consisting of a series of nonzero bytes ending in a zero byte.
20:23:31 <boily> the lenghts of strings are too damn high!
20:24:38 * quintopia joins the string-lengths-too-damn-high party
20:25:12 <Taneb> But how long is a piece of string
20:25:33 <Bike> nobody knows.
20:27:12 <Taneb> Also how do I get a new debit card issues
20:27:14 <Taneb> *issued
20:27:34 <shachaf> Taneb: step 1: move to california hth
20:27:54 <Taneb> shachaf, but for that I need money and for that I need a new debit card!
20:29:11 <boily> first, become Canadian.
20:29:31 <Taneb> Same problem!
20:33:05 <boily> we can do that in installments. you just start very slow, with basic stuff like poutine, then progress from that.

22:41:49 <fizzie> The cityscape soundtrack (as performed by orchestra) resembled quite much the one in Final Reality, the early-ish graphics benchmark software those guys did.
22:42:42 <fizzie> The C64 port is impressively faithful to the original.

22:52:06 <shachaf> There are a couple of ways to deal with these threats. First, you can identify and remove them and this is how anti-virus software works. You can also install a firewall either in the network cable (which requires hardware) or on the computer itself to monitor and block the packets leaving your computer.

23:00:10 <Bike> oh, right, their entire marketing model is based on the idea that with more resources you can break anything and are a wizard
23:00:37 <Fiora> wasn't there a thing where there was an attack that was actually better against AES-256 than 128 because of insufficient mixing or something?
23:00:46 <Fiora> and like, generalizing to a bigger key size without enough mixing and rounds could be super dangerous
23:02:18 <elliott> this unsene thing hurts me
23:02:24 <shachaf> yes, but on the other hand, not being über-strong is also kind of dangerous
