01:05:33 <oerjan> scott aaronson sarcasts on science journalism (scroll to the MAGIC 8-BALL) http://www.scottaaronson.com/blog/?p=1679
01:21:00 <Bike> funnily enough i saw him extensively quoted in some pop sci today
01:21:31 <Taneb> Help I am game programming in Haskell
01:21:32 <Taneb> http://lpaste.net/99581
01:21:38 <Bike> fizzie: i've been watching the status of parallel matlab jobs through windows task manager.
01:22:06 <oerjan> Bike: well he was quoted in the thing he's blogging about, too
01:22:51 <Bike> yeh
01:23:08 <Bike> the one i read was a basic "holy shit, halting problem!" thing
01:23:49 <Taneb> ...
01:23:58 <Taneb> just noticed I've been writing my lambdas backwards
01:24:28 <Bike> what was the end quote. something like "it's good to know electronic brains can't be perfect"
01:25:10 <nooodl> Taneb: what's with the "fmap Right"s
01:26:05 <Taneb> nooodl, in theory I could instead do a Left thingy which would be treated as a sort of "missing value" error by netwire
01:32:41 <shachaf> kmc: i should figure out how people solve yao's millionaire problem

02:57:09 <Sgeo> data Stream b = SCons (b, Stream b)
02:57:14 <Sgeo> Why a tuple?
02:57:28 <Sgeo> Rather than two arguments to SCons?
03:02:41 <Sgeo> Ok, fine, makes sense
03:16:16 <Sgeo> "Note that this has nothing to do with execution. printFibN does not execute a print statement. No more than writing printFibN on a piece of paper will cause it to magically evaluate."
03:16:42 <Sgeo> Wonder if that will catch on as a description
03:17:02 <Bike> sounds like if it did, that would be some damn useful paper, though
03:32:19 <quintopia> does anyone remember which language of ais523 is the one where there's like a table of memory cells and the only instruction is like copy the contents of that one to this one and jump to that other one?
03:33:46 <quintopia> Bike: lol at that quote. "perfect" meaning "omniscient" I guess?
03:34:25 <Bike> something silly
03:35:44 <Bike> "By slaying the mythical loop snooper, Turing taught us that there are fundamental limits to what computers can do. We all have our limits, and in a way it's comforting to know that the artificial brains that we create will always have theirs too."
03:36:00 <Bike> [whatever] brain is such a shitty word for computers, grr
03:43:51 <quintopia> "let's call the subset of computers which aren't brains [blah] brains! so the all computers are brains, yay!"
03:44:23 <quintopia> it's okay as long as [blah] is Matryoshka
03:45:42 <Bike> only because those are so sci-fi it doesn't matter.
03:47:26 <quintopia> here's my best reword: "it's good to know that things which are made out of stuff in this universe will always be incapable of doing things which are impossible in this universe."

10:42:51 <quintopia> ais523: I just found a ResPlicate sequence that goes 12850 cycles before deleting itself! how are you?
10:43:04 <ais523> I'm not doing great, but I'll survive
10:43:11 <ais523> and it's an interesting language
10:43:49 <quintopia> ais523: feel better!
10:43:53 <ais523> I haven't "broken" it in terms of TCness yet, although my first thoughts are a) try to avoid the same queue element being used for both a length and a repeat count if possible, b) try to simulate a tag system
10:45:15 <quintopia> ais523: well that first condition is easy to meet. just make sure all the odd numbered elements of the sequence are even numbers :)
10:45:31 <ais523> quintopia: yep, that's why I thought of it
10:45:31 <quintopia> (and that there is an even number of numbers in the sequence)
10:45:37 <ais523> it seems trivial and make reasoning about the language much easier
10:46:09 <quintopia> but it seems to do much more interesting things when you let them be odd :P
10:52:59 <quintopia> ais523: besides yourself, what's your short list of "esolang experts"

10:55:01 <nooodl> fwiw i think Resplicate looks better than ResPlicate
10:55:10 <quintopia> TOO LATE
10:55:52 <ais523> hm, the problem with trying to program in ResPlicate is that you don't have any external source of data, copying is the /only/ way to make the string longer
10:56:48 <quintopia> yes. if you want a number in there, you better start with it in there.
10:57:34 <quintopia> and you have to keep it in there too. that's even harder.
10:58:50 <quintopia> nooodl: the sequence family 6 3 10 1 6 2 2k+1 1 is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing. try it!

12:13:31 <oerjan> <Bike> sounds like if it did, that would be some damn useful paper, though <-- note to future logreaders: back when this was written, most paper was _not_ ... heck we haven't even decided what to call it yet.
12:14:20 <oerjan> also, google and wikipedia were most unhelpful.
12:14:38 <fizzie> oerjan: I think it's just called smart paper.
12:14:43 <oerjan> ah.
12:14:50 <ais523> quintopia: I have a plan for proving resplicate TC already, not sure if it works or not though

12:15:13 <fizzie> (Source: Neal Stephenson, "The Diamond Age".)
12:16:17 <quintopia> ais523: well i could already visualize how a tag system might be shaped, but it wasn't readily apparent how to do some parts of it
12:16:24 <quintopia> ais523: i'm ready to hear what you've got
12:16:31 <ais523> I'm not ready to explain it yet though
12:17:06 <quintopia> okay i'll go back to not sleeping and reading about bytebeat
12:17:28 <ais523> one of the things I'm bad at is converting thoughts into a medium that other people can understand
12:17:37 <ais523> I can normally manage it eventually, but it takes a while
12:18:07 <oerjan> ais523: it seems similar to Self BCT? although with the ability to handle somewhat larger sequences in one step.
12:18:25 <ais523> oerjan: not really, doesn't self BCT have two pointers?

12:49:56 <fizzie> "Authors retain the right to use the accepted author manuscript for personal use, internal institutional use and for permitted scholarly posting provided that these are not for purposes of commercial use or systematic distribution." "Systematic distribution means: policies or other mechanisms designed to aggregate and openly disseminate, or to substitute for journal-provided services --"
12:51:55 <Jafet> Is this why faculty websites always look unsystematic
12:52:27 <fizzie> Perhaps.
12:53:16 <fizzie> Also any "Institutional, funding body or government manuscript posting policies or mandates that aim to aggregate and openly distribute the work by its researchers or funded researchers", no matter how haphazardly implemented, count as "systematic distribution".
12:54:19 <Jafet> researchers or funded researchers
12:54:39 <fizzie> Yes, I noticed that too.
12:57:05 <fizzie> I guess it could imply that it considers policies that apply to researchers, or policies that apply to funded researchers. (As a corollary, a policy that applies to "all researchers except this one guy" would then not be systematic distribution.)

13:33:52 <oerjan> it's probably a misspelling of guttural

15:00:40 <Johnnie> As for my coords: 32°47′00″N 79°56′00″W
15:03:10 <Johnnie> And body weigh....under two bags of cement.
15:04:00 <Johnnie> (using the hundredweight measurement)
15:06:10 <oerjan> that's far too accurate for me _not_ to paste into google maps.
15:06:28 <ais523> it's only accurate to the nearest minute
15:06:42 <oerjan> hm good point
15:06:43 <Johnnie> That's okay, I snatched it off of Wikipedia.
15:07:07 <oerjan> ais523: well it's pretty close to a college...
15:07:36 <oerjan> and a starbucks.
15:08:29 <Johnnie> That's funny!
15:08:51 <Johnnie> I'd thought Wikipedia would use coords close to the Harbour.
15:09:16 <ais523> Wikipedia probably just rounded to the nearest minute
15:09:34 <oerjan> how much _is_ a minute anyway.
15:09:36 <ais523> link for me to click on: http://esolangs.org/wiki/ResPlicate
15:09:50 <ais523> oerjan: 1/(60*360) of the Earth's circumference
15:10:05 <oerjan> > 40000/(60*360)
15:10:07 <lambdabot> 1.8518518518518519
15:10:30 <ais523> at any meridian, it equals one nautical mile exactly
15:10:37 <oerjan> for latitude, anyway.
15:10:41 <ais523> yep
15:10:50 <fizzie> A man wanted to talk to me about Jesus, at the bus stop in front of the CS building. That was *so* un-Finnish.
15:10:53 <ais523> Wikipedia says 1852m by definition
15:11:51 <ais523> for a nautical mile
15:12:03 <oerjan> i'd say the harbour is on the border of plausible rounding range
15:12:25 <Johnnie> In other words: close enough.
15:13:51 <fizzie> Strangeish to put the seconds in after rounding to minutes, but maybe it's convention.
15:13:57 <boily> ais523: it's not a typo. it's traditionnal to write “weigh”.
15:14:18 <ais523> boily: are you actively trying to drive me from the channel agin?
15:14:20 <ais523> *again

15:14:51 <Johnnie> ...enoough?....too many 'o's.
15:15:24 <boily> ais523: sorry, I was in a meeting, and I answered before seeing your other reply. I will esolang when esolanging is happening.
15:19:25 <oerjan> hm i'm wondering how close resPlicate can emulate something Fueue-like, if you make sure all blocks have "statically" known lengths and you avoid explicit swapping (but maybe it can be simulated, like in underload)
15:20:00 <ais523> I'm still thinking about ResPlicate
15:20:58 <oerjan> it's the most minimalistic queue language we've had so far, i think
15:21:06 <ais523> I have an idea of creating a tag system, using a dictionary of all necessary rule-pieces that gets copied around (as multiple copies) at regular intervals so that the rule-pieces can be extracted from it
15:21:23 <ais523> and hmm, it sort-of competes with http://esolangs.org/wiki/DownRight (and cyclic tag) for the title of "minimalistic queue-language"
15:23:09 <oerjan> um it has no program/data separation, which i think is a big boost
15:23:37 <Johnnie> The Norweigans ruled Britian under Cnut the Great and Sweyn Forkbeard...maybe the Finnish can rule the world under esolangs?
15:24:03 <nortti> wasn't Knut danish?
15:24:11 <Johnnie> He probably was.

15:44:56 <ais523> I mean, my definition of "minimalistic" is "easy to implement in a range of ridiculously limited languages"

16:53:33 <newsham> anyone play with microcorruption.com ?
16:56:18 <b_jonas> is there an english word similar to "want" or "need" that takes both a noun without preposition or a verb without "to"? or can that not exist because it would cause ambiguities between noun and verb?
16:57:31 <ais523> b_jonas: hmm, I remember studying this sort of thing for grammartree
16:58:00 <b_jonas> it needn't be a single word, it can be a phrase
16:58:08 <newsham> "I want food" "I need food" works without preposition, but I think you need the "to" for verbs to make it "infinitive"
16:58:35 <ais523> there are verbs like "should" that don't take "to"
16:58:44 <newsham> true
16:58:52 <b_jonas> newsham: yes, after a verbs like that you usually need either a to-infinitive or gerund
16:58:52 <ais523> but they tend not to work with nouns
16:58:56 <b_jonas> ais523: exactly
16:59:12 <b_jonas> what does "can has" take?
16:59:31 <newsham> "i can has catnip?"
16:59:37 <boily> “I want to food”.
16:59:38 <newsham> it means "can I have" in cat talk
16:59:54 <ais523> incidentally, verbs that appear in the portion of NetHack I converted to grammartree that take verbs without infinitives: can, had better, should, may
17:00:05 <b_jonas> yes, but what form of verb, as in "I can has go out" or "I can has to go out" or "I can has going out"
17:00:17 <ais523> and some verbs take participles, or possibly gerunds: stop, like, see
17:00:26 <ais523> and "can has" is lolcat speak, not actual English
17:00:39 <ais523> thus it doesn't obey normal grammar rules
17:00:43 <b_jonas> ais523: yeah, it wouldn't suit me because of that, I was wondering
17:00:48 <b_jonas> I'll check the lolcat bible
17:00:50 <ais523> and in fact the grammar is mostly made up on the pot
17:00:52 <ais523> *spot
17:00:59 <b_jonas> no!
17:01:06 <b_jonas> there is some sort of consistency

18:01:12 <fizzie> Here, it's a box.
18:02:36 <fizzie> Though if I open the logs in a browser, it looks like... well, it looks like a very small uppercase A, on top of which (as a diacritic) there's a thing that looks vaguely like a small lambda.
18:03:43 <fizzie> Zooming in reveals that the diacritic is instead a caret and a grave accent, stacked vertically, with the grave on top.
18:05:32 <fizzie> (Approximately ᴀ̂̀.)
18:06:47 <ais523> that's a pretty nice letter
18:08:38 <fizzie> Is there a way in Unicode to say that "this following stack of combining characters should go vertically in this order, instead of being all on top of each other"?
18:11:55 <fizzie> Apparently there's a character called Combining Grapheme Joiner, which can be used to block reordering of combining characters during normalization ("For example, -- [as] one way to maintain distinction between differently ordered sequences of certain Hebrew accents and marks"), but that's a different thing.
18:15:22 <fizzie> And double diacritics (two-character ones, that is) will float over any diacritic marks of the participating two characters, but that's also different.
18:17:00 <fizzie> And you can put other diacritics on top of a double diacritic by following the double diacritic with the CGJ and a diacritic, but that's still not quite it.
18:32:24 <boily> back from lunch, and it diacriticise.

19:01:27 <kmc> TIL the Perl CGI module contains some kind of wacky (and not very good) DSL for outputting HTML code (rather, XHTML 1.0 only)
19:02:24 <kmc> I updated my house's accounting system (a venerable Perl script) to output nicer-looking Bootstrap-y HTML
19:04:43 <b_jonas> wtf
19:04:50 <b_jonas> what's this fascination with Bootstrap by everyone?
19:05:05 <b_jonas> what's so good in it
19:05:07 <b_jonas> ?
19:05:18 <kmc> it just makes a page look decent with very little effort
19:05:28 <b_jonas> more specifically?
19:05:35 <b_jonas> what do you mean by "look decent"?
19:05:43 <kmc> more readable, more pleasing to the eye
19:05:57 <b_jonas> is it like shiny stuff marketing asks for?
19:06:02 <b_jonas> aren't you doing this page for yourself?
19:06:05 <kmc> what crawled up your ass
19:06:08 <b_jonas> s/shiny/shiny bling/
19:06:44 <b_jonas> sorry, I don't mean to be so negative, there is probably something bootstrap does well, I just don't know it and I'd like to find out what it is
19:06:54 <b_jonas> "make it nice" doesn't seem like something that would make you use it alone
19:07:15 <kmc> b_jonas: I'm not a web designer so I can't describe specifically the aspects which make it good design, but I appreciate the result
19:07:25 <kmc> definitely a few things like better fonts and good spacing are obvious
19:07:30 <boily> bootstrap has a 12-column grid. granted, nearly all starting bases have them, but bootstrap does some aggressive marketing.
19:07:48 <kmc> I'm a programmer and so I delegate design things to professional designers, and importing Bootstrap is a no-effort way to do that for small personal projects
19:07:51 <kmc> so why not do it?
19:08:05 <kmc> do I need a super strong reason to use it? it's one line of HTML
19:08:10 <b_jonas> ok, if that's all it's probably not something made for me
19:08:24 <boily> I like columns.
19:08:37 <kmc> another specific thing it does that's useful in this context (accounting) is the thing where alternating rows of a table are shaded differently
19:08:43 <kmc> and when you hover over a row it's shaded differently still
19:08:58 <b_jonas> kmc: ok, now that's something specific I can understand
19:09:18 <b_jonas> even if it's just like a few lines of css, but yes, it's good that a framework handles taht
19:09:54 <b_jonas> yeah, the problem is probably that I don't like "frameworks" in general
19:09:59 <FireFly> well, if you can get something with a few fancy flashy gradients and buttons and stuff with little effort, I don't see why not
19:10:13 -!- w00tles has joined.
19:10:43 <b_jonas> FireFly: because I don't want fancy gradients. I'm old school in typography and believe that text should be put on a uniform colored background only.
19:11:16 <kmc> it doesn't do fancy flashy gradients
19:11:30 <kmc> it's a very simple clean design
19:11:34 <kmc> "flat design" is the fad now so it's even simpler
19:11:48 <b_jonas> that's also why I don't understand people using transparent windows, esp transparent menus and transparent terminal windows, or terminal windows with backgrounds
19:11:53 <kmc> http://getbootstrap.com/css/ http://getbootstrap.com/components/
19:12:14 <b_jonas> but I admit that I also don't like frameworks in general
19:13:42 <ion> Bootstrap also makes responsive layouts easy and you can be p. sure that it works everywhere without testing it everywhere yourself.
19:14:07 <boily> ion: <boily> I like columns.
19:14:53 <ion> boily: Me too, except when using a very narrow display.
19:15:33 <kmc> b_jonas: I do the minimal terminals, minimal WM thing too
19:15:39 <kmc> b_jonas: however the default unstyled HTML isn't "minimal"
19:15:46 <kmc> it uses a fucking serif font
19:15:55 <kmc> in many respects bootstrap'd HTML looks simpler and cleaner
19:16:04 <kmc> it's not about fancy gradients and impressing marketing
19:16:33 <b_jonas> kmc: as for that, I do like serif fonts, but I decide about that in my browser settings.
19:16:37 <kmc> if "design" is such a tainted word to your ultra programmer sensibilities then call it "information presentation engineering" or whatever
19:16:46 <boily> imho, it's very hard to achieve a nice formatting with serif fonts on a retro-lit display.
19:17:09 <kmc> anyway i got to go
19:17:11 <b_jonas> sometimes I make my browser forcibly override fonts in all html to a good serif font instead of letting browsers choose, but then I usually turn it back eventually except for some bad websites
19:17:30 <boily> b_jonas: what are your favourite serif fonts?
19:17:47 <b_jonas> boily: maybe it is if you're using small font sizes. I prefer large sizes
19:18:43 <b_jonas> boily: sadly I don't really have any font I'm completely satisfied with. I would eventually like to design my own fonts, in like the next few decades, but for now I only have a good bitmap terminal font I've drawn.
19:19:02 <b_jonas> in browser I usually use either bitstream vera serif or times
19:19:24 <boily> I dislike times. I'm more of a palatino guy.
19:20:18 <boily> a nice example of serifed text → http://www.newrepublic.com/article/116443/new-york-citys-french-dual-language-programs-are-mostly-pointless
19:20:32 <boily> (they use ‘Publico Text’)
19:20:53 <b_jonas> hmm, actually I think I do currently have the font forced on all websites in this browser

19:58:39 <boily> quintopia: something about... eeeeh... I'm kinda having a blank here.
19:58:47 <boily> it's related to the halting problem.

20:04:31 <b_jonas> I think 'Thevalj.' is right. Isn't that sort of how pig latin works?
20:04:38 <b_jonas> I'm not good in these English language games
20:04:48 <boily> quintopia: of course. I'd like to have it understand aubergine also.
20:05:13 <b_jonas> hmm, maybe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Name_Game is more relevant than pig latin?
20:07:28 <FireFly> I think pig latin cuts up and reorders stuff
20:08:28 <b_jonas> I still don't know what it should give for a nick with only consonants

20:09:29 <b_jonas> hmm, ok
20:09:52 <quintopia> boily: post seems pretty cool
20:10:38 <quintopia> boily: it should be WrItTeN In iN aUbErFGiNe
20:10:58 <quintopia> agh stupid lag echoing backspaces instead of doing them
20:11:31 <boily> you squished an ERF in my aubergine.
20:12:46 <quintopia> gihvjck
20:12:58 <quintopia> imagine it the way it looked to me before udp mangled it
20:14:59 <boily> spelling guterals won't help you there, you Infamous Squisher.
20:15:54 <boily> but I think I'm still going to go a step further than that. something more... arduous. tortuous. painful, like a stubbed toe on a rabid stove.
20:16:06 <quintopia> hmm
20:16:10 <quintopia> it's been done
20:16:22 <b_jonas> `thanks strong
20:16:23 <HackEgo> Thanks, strong. Thong.
20:16:41 <boily> quintopia: beuh.
20:17:03 <quintopia> quintopia: make something that is a JOY to program in! even more than aubergine!
20:18:07 <boily> oh. so, pain inducing, but more like a quality hot sauce where you put your tongue on fire and your brains on dopamines?
20:19:58 <boily> (btw, is there yucca flavoured hot sauce out there? I'd buy a bottle of that if thausible.)
20:22:27 <FireFly> `thanks Hanks
20:22:28 <HackEgo> Thanks, Hanks. Thanks.
20:23:59 <quintopia> boily: http://honest-food.net/2011/06/15/eating-yucca-flowers/ there's this at least. your language should be like eating fried flowers with hot sauce
20:24:22 <boily> oh.
20:24:28 <boily> you are tempting me.
20:24:37 <b_jonas> quintopia: fire flowers? as in super mario ones?
20:24:57 <b_jonas> oens that make you powerful
20:25:25 <ais523> sadly, flowers tend not to shoot fire in real life
20:25:33 <ais523> there are plants with projectile weapons, though
20:26:24 <quintopia> ais523: have you broken resplicate yet. we're all waiting :P
20:27:01 <ais523> quintopia: no, I need to spend overnight I think
20:27:07 <ais523> I can't concentrate when I have Internet access
20:27:12 <ais523> this is why most of my BF Jousting is done offline
20:27:14 <ais523> for instance
20:27:28 <quintopia> :D i understand
20:28:01 * quintopia EMPs the area around ais523
20:28:21 <b_jonas> it's not the flowers that shoot fire
20:28:32 <b_jonas> it's super mario that shoots fire after he takes a fire flower
20:30:32 <ais523> quintopia: careful not to destroy my laptop
20:30:48 <ais523> b_jonas: the flower itself shoots fire in Smash Bros.
20:31:27 <quintopia> ais523: i focused on isp hubs and cell towers
20:31:40 <b_jonas> ais523: hmm
20:31:50 <ais523> you can ignore the cell towers, I don't have any sort of cellular equipment
20:32:00 <ais523> because then I wouldn't be able to concentrate /ever/ :-)
20:32:56 <b_jonas> well, mario games also have flower-like enemies that duck in and out of pipes, some of which shoot flowers, but I don't know what those are called
20:33:30 <quintopia> i used to know their names
20:34:00 <b_jonas> gb super mario 2 has cannons instead of flowers only I think
20:34:03 <b_jonas> I'm not sure
20:34:13 <b_jonas> no wait
20:34:21 <b_jonas> the cannons don't duck in and out of pipes
20:34:23 <b_jonas> I dunno
20:34:32 <boily> http://www.mariowiki.com/Piranha_Plant ?
20:34:43 <ais523> b_jonas: piranha plants I think
20:35:03 <ais523> also, the canons duck in and out of pipes on super mario land /1/
20:35:08 <quintopia> piranha plant or packun flower
20:35:16 <ais523> /2/ has piranha plants, like in the NES and SNES games
20:35:25 <quintopia> and the fire shooters are venus firetraps
20:35:27 <ais523> err, didn't mean to italicise the2
20:35:31 <ais523> * 2
20:35:46 <b_jonas> actually from that wiki http://www.mariowiki.com/Venus_Fire_Trap is the variant that shoots fire
20:36:22 <quintopia> hurray we are all good at googling
20:36:31 <ais523> hey, I'm doing this from memory
20:36:34 <b_jonas> but what's the black cat-head-like thing in gb super mario 1 that ducks from pipes and shoots horizontally moving bullets?
20:36:47 <ais523> as I said, learning about computer games I've never played is one of my hobbies
20:36:49 <b_jonas> I didn't google, I just clicked on a link from the Piranha Plant article
20:36:52 <ais523> (also, I have actually played SML1 and 2)
20:36:58 <ais523> (and completed both of them)
20:37:02 <b_jonas> I have played both, but sml2 much more
20:37:24 <b_jonas> I haven't completed sml2, but I've done all but the wario level
20:37:30 <b_jonas> the wario level turns out to be too difficult to me
20:37:35 <b_jonas> turned
20:37:40 <ais523> it's an order of magnitude harder than anything else in the game
20:37:40 * quintopia aims at birdo at ais523. "beat super mario sunshine or you get the egg!"
20:37:53 -!- zzo38 has joined.
20:38:04 <ais523> b_jonas: for quite a lot of it, memorization helps
20:38:21 <ais523> I also recommend grinding lives (or coins to buy lives) so that you don't have to go and refight all the bosses when you screw up
20:38:27 <b_jonas> the reason why sml2 is easy is that you get lots of retries because it's really easy to get lots of extra lives
20:38:36 <b_jonas> exactly
20:38:51 <b_jonas> I continuously had over 90 lives when playing
20:38:59 <b_jonas> but the wario castle is long
20:39:09 <ais523> yes, long and no checkpoints
20:39:16 <ais523> and the first room is the second-hardest room in the castle
20:39:28 <quintopia> well that's nice of them
20:39:31 <b_jonas> I don't want to finish it anymore, but I would like to finish commander keen 2
20:39:36 <ais523> yeah, hard room first helps
20:39:38 -!- metasepia has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
20:39:43 <ais523> the hardest room is like halfway through
20:39:57 <b_jonas> I've finished all other commander keen games (on easy level at least),
20:40:02 <b_jonas> but I'm stuck in ck2
20:40:05 <b_jonas> no wait
20:40:08 <b_jonas> it's ck3 I'm stuck in
20:40:12 <b_jonas> I've done ck2
20:40:18 <b_jonas> sorry for the confusino
20:40:19 <boily> time to wipe and clean and nuke and polish and apply febreeze to my machine.
20:40:24 -!- boily has quit (Quit: NUCULAR CHICKEN!).
20:40:42 <ais523> gah, that sentence is leaving me with cognitive dissonance
20:40:52 <b_jonas> and yeah, I could finish those too only because of infinite lives you get by saving after each level
20:40:56 <ais523> because half of it is ambiguous, and the other half gives mixed signals as to how to interpret it
20:41:04 <b_jonas> and, in the second series, in the middle of levels too
20:41:34 <b_jonas> I find ck5 the easiest by far
20:41:47 <b_jonas> no wait
20:41:57 <b_jonas> yes, ck5
20:42:00 <b_jonas> I always mix them up
20:42:06 <ais523> I don't know much about the commander keen series
20:42:53 <b_jonas> ais523: what you should know is that ck1..3 is completely different from ck4..6.
20:43:09 <ais523> OK, this is not very much information because I don't know much about /either/ series
20:43:40 <b_jonas> ck1..3 has more different (and imo more difficult) controls (reacts slower, sort of like prince of persia), different graphics (smaller tiles), different rules (can't save during levels), different level design
20:44:51 <b_jonas> it's also older and targets earlier computers, so the graphics isn't as good (simpler tiles, horizontally scrolls only in multiplies of 8 pixels so it works on EGA or something, which makes it sometimes jerky).
20:44:52 <ais523> like, I don't even know what genre this is
20:46:24 <b_jonas> ais523: it's a 2D platformer where you control a single superhero, the young (8 year old or so) Commander Keen, who dies from a single hit but has a pistol he can use to kill or stun most enemies (limited number of shots in ck1..3)
20:46:40 <b_jonas> and a pogo he can use to jump bigger but more difficult to control than normal jumps
20:46:52 <ais523> hmm right
20:46:53 <b_jonas> http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/ is the wiki
20:47:21 <ais523> this doesn't really sound like the sort of game I enjoy
20:47:23 <b_jonas> also, ck4..6 has lots of secret areas, mostly invisible passages inside walls, but sometimes just places that are hard to reach
20:47:40 <nooodl> wow i'm playing commander keen as we speak
20:47:45 <nooodl> what the heck
20:47:48 <b_jonas> I quite enjoy ck4..6, enjoy ck1..3 somewhat less but now I'd like to complete it
20:48:01 <b_jonas> nooodl: high five
20:48:12 <FireFly> nooodl: the important question is, is it in {1..3} or {4..6}?
20:48:16 <nooodl> ck5
20:48:25 <FireFly> (NB. I've never played any CK game either)
20:48:56 <nooodl> i'm doing speedruns. very fun
20:49:13 <FireFly> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Keen3Gameplay.png nice colour palette
20:50:04 <nooodl> i have to do a full 100% run at some point. ck5 speedrunning is aaaactive, ish, but everyone skips through the game with a glitch, even though the levels are very fun
20:50:46 <b_jonas> nooodl: by 100% run, you mean no death and no save?
20:50:56 <nooodl> i mean beat all the levels
20:50:58 <b_jonas> ah
20:51:03 <b_jonas> that's easier
20:51:04 <ais523> b_jonas: 100% means you achieve all the goals of the game
20:51:15 <ais523> although, for "beat all the levels", the normal terms are either "all levels" or "warpless"
20:51:25 <b_jonas> do you want to reach all the secret places in levels and the secret level and all the hidden items too, even the really difficult to get extra lives?
20:51:26 <ais523> warpless means you don't skip levels, all levels means you do all of them
20:51:36 <ais523> the difference mostly being when you have a choice of which level to take
20:51:39 <zzo38> It looks to be a standard PC color palette, I think
20:51:42 <ais523> in warpless, you can pick either of them
20:51:49 <ais523> in all levels, you do one, then go back and do the other
20:51:49 <nooodl> "warpless" and "all levels" differ one level in keen 5
20:51:50 <b_jonas> ais523: yes, some commander keen games have optional levels or choices between levels
20:51:51 <nooodl> (the secret level)
20:52:14 <b_jonas> I try to go for all levels except the secret level, that's how I did ck{1,3,4,5,6} I think
20:52:31 <b_jonas> but I definitely cannot reach all the hidden places in all levels
20:52:46 <b_jonas> I want all levels because that's how I get the most fun from the game

21:39:38 <ion> 3 – kolme – three
21:39:46 <ion> 3:n – kolmen – of three / three’s
21:40:59 <shachaf> ah
21:41:37 <shachaf> kolme yksin
21:41:38 <ion> IBM:n – IBM’s
21:42:03 <ion> IBM:lle – for IBM
21:42:15 <Bike> why the fuck is there a keyboard layout called 'unicode'...
21:44:10 <kmc> you literally use a colon for that in finnish? weird/cool
21:44:17 <ion> fizzie: You should improve my translation, esp. for “deployment”, kthx
21:45:06 <ion> If you ever see someone write “IBM:s” in English shklee’s probably a native Finn.
21:45:08 <b_jonas> kmc: Hungarian uses a hyphen for that (and removes the period from before it if the word before ends in a period)
21:45:25 <fizzie> The colon+suffix thing gets used wrong in many ways.
21:45:31 <kmc> @tell Sgeo you might be interested in https://air.mozilla.org/incremental-parallelization-of-dynamic-languages/
21:45:32 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
21:45:34 <kmc> i haven't watched it yet
21:45:49 <b_jonas> as for the colon, someone has suggested to use a dot
21:45:54 <b_jonas> erase that
21:46:10 <fizzie> E.g. it's "IBM:n" because that's read letter by letter, but "OPECin" because that's read as a word.
21:46:37 <kmc> paamayim nekudotayim
21:46:44 <b_jonas> as for the colon, someone has suggested to use a middle dot as a new punctuation mark in Hungarian to separate the subject (and words attached to that) from the predicate (and words attached from that) in ambiguous sentences,
21:46:56 <b_jonas> but I think we should use the colon for that actually.
21:47:01 <FireFly> Swedish also uses : for ordinals (1:a, 2:a, 3:e for 1st, 2nd, 3rd)
21:47:08 <yubisaylozada> ;-)
21:47:09 <kmc> fizzie: IBM:n and OPECin are correct usage or they're the wrong usage you object to?
21:47:11 <b_jonas> (this one doesn't make sense in English, where that kind of ambiguity doesn't come up)
21:47:33 <fizzie> kmc: They're both correct. But different, obviously, since the other doesn't have a colon.
21:48:22 <fizzie> ion: I can't really figure out a better word for deployment.

21:48:57 <b_jonas> as for abuse, the blogs http://www.apostropheabuse.com/ and http://www.apostrophecatastrophes.com/ have lots of examples where apostrophe is used in English to attach plural "s" to words
21:49:15 <b_jonas> often to abbreviations

21:55:03 <fizzie> "kaivaihtuvilta" is borderline okay.
21:55:19 <fizzie> "from the probably-changing" or some such.
21:55:26 <b_jonas> oooh! is that some sort of stochastic model random generation?

21:55:38 <fizzie> I think it's trigrams.
21:55:49 <b_jonas> I made one of those once, a bit more complicated,
21:56:04 <fizzie> And then some separate word length model, I think.

22:28:44 <b_jonas> does the esolang wiki have entries for the three simple automata Smullyan has defined in his books?

22:30:30 <oerjan> hm no hits for "smullyan"
22:31:44 <b_jonas> two of them are defined in the book ''The Lady or the Tiger'', one in ''The Riddle of Scheherazade''.
22:32:19 <b_jonas> the three are very simlar, they're functions from digit strings to other digit strings,
22:32:51 <b_jonas> partial functions actually, with very simple rules, and often applied repeatedly with the question being whether it ever reaches a digit string not in the domain
22:33:42 <oerjan> mhm
22:34:36 <b_jonas> the other questions are finding a quine (there is at least one for each automaton)
