00:00:19 <quintopia> yeah sorry about that
00:00:22 <quintopia> best i could do
00:00:38 <oerjan> oh well
00:01:24 <quintopia> on the bright side, norway is still in the lead at the games, and i got a stroopwaffel for valentimes
00:01:58 <oerjan> nice!
00:02:24 <shachaf> i like stroopwafels
00:02:25 <oerjan> despite several of our best having some bad luck
00:04:12 <oerjan> apparently our athletes are not used to doing competitive skiing in > +10 celsius temperatures
00:05:27 <oerjan> (that's 50 fahrenheit for you weirdos)
00:10:01 <fizzie> oerjan: Not if you sort by number of gold medals hth
00:10:53 <quintopia> hmm the U.S. is second in all-time winter olympics medals. Austria is third. Canada is way behind. I would have expected better from Canada.
00:10:56 <oerjan> i haven't actually kept up with the games enough to know what actual score is
00:11:40 <fizzie> "The gold first ranking system described above is used by most of the world media, as well as the IOC. While the gold first ranking system has been used occasionally by some American media outlets, newspapers in the United States and Canada primarily publish medal tables ordered by the total number of medals won,[6][7][8][9][10][11] and Canada used the total medal count on the official website ...
00:11:46 <fizzie> ... for the Vancouver Olympics."
00:12:20 <fizzie> Of course the only true ranking system is to order the table in ascending Levenshtein distance of the country name from the string "Finland", in which we've generally been doing p. well.
00:12:46 <oerjan> of course.
00:15:06 <quintopia> order gold-first, the top two are still norway and U.S., but then third goes to Soviet Union (for now) and fourth to Germany. apparently Austria gets on the podium a lot, but not in the top spot as often as Germany.
00:15:54 <fizzie> Finland also drops quite a lot when going from total to gold (in winter game medals).
00:15:56 <quintopia> it would probably be more fair to compare on the basis of golds/games attended
00:18:07 <fizzie> "Thomas Hicks (a Briton running for the United States) was the first to cross the finish-line legally, after having received several doses of strychnine sulfate (a common rat poison, which stimulates the nervous system in small doses) mixed with brandy from his trainers. He was supported by his trainers when he crossed the finish, but is still considered the winner."
00:18:28 <fizzie> (For the 1904 games' marathon.)
00:19:15 <quintopia> what
00:19:31 <fizzie> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1904_Summer_Olympics#Marathon
00:19:42 <quintopia> seems like the kind of thing they'd retroactively toss out of the record books
00:19:44 <fizzie> Must've been kind of different event, back then.
00:20:20 <oerjan> well historically, you're _supposed_ to die after doing the marathon.
00:20:25 <fizzie> Also this bit: "A Cuban postman named Felix Carbajal joined the marathon, arriving at the last minute. He had to run in street clothes that he cut around the legs to make them look like shorts. He stopped off in an orchard en route to have a snack on some apples, which turned out to be rotten. The rotten apples caused him to have to lie down and take a nap. Despite falling ill from the apples ...
00:20:31 <fizzie> ... he finished in fourth place."
00:20:54 <quintopia> that's hilarious
00:21:12 <quintopia> where were those games
00:21:34 <fizzie> "The participants totalled 651 athletes – 645 men and 6 women representing 12 countries. However, only 42 events (less than half) actually included athletes who were not from the United States."
00:21:43 <fizzie> In St. Louis, Missouri.
00:22:03 <fizzie> Easy way to rack up those medals, I guess?
00:22:47 <fizzie> [[ St. Louis organizers repeated the mistakes made at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris. Competitions were reduced to a side-show of the World's Fair and were lost in the chaos of other, more popular cultural exhibits. David R. Francis, the President of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, declined to invite anybody else to open the Games and, on July 1 did so himself in a scaled-down short and ...
00:22:53 <fizzie> ... humdrum "ceremony". ]]
00:22:56 <fizzie> Such humble beginnings.

00:25:42 <kmc> haha
00:26:22 <oerjan> <ais523> and yeah, there are quite a few, but they all seem to misunderstand quantum computation <-- hm i vaguely thought we had at least one that used proper quantum gates
00:29:35 <quintopia> quantum computing is already so esoteric it's hard to make an esolang out of it
00:30:15 <oerjan> <ais523> actual quantum computing is more like, you have all these threads, but only one of them, chosen at random, actually does anything <-- i am not entirely sure you're sufficiently less confused than the average programmer, here
00:30:44 <ais523> oerjan: I implemented a quantum computer simulator as an A-level project
00:30:57 <oerjan> okay, i guess that counts
00:30:58 <ais523> and ran Shor's algorithm on it
00:31:09 <quintopia> i knew what you were getting at
00:32:04 <kmc> oerjan: well the next thing he said was about interference.
00:32:13 <kmc> without that it's a pretty incomplete description, yeah
00:32:19 <ais523> also I was trying to fix the typical analogy that people use, rather than create a new one from scratch
00:32:20 <oerjan> right
00:32:38 <quintopia> i think whatsisname did a pretty good job of summarizing for the lay person. "You set up an entangled system to performs some computation on all answers simultaneously, such that the right is probabilistically amplified while all the wrong answers destructively interfere"
00:32:48 <quintopia> *right answer
00:33:03 <oerjan> the thing is that afair you cannot actually _distinguish_ threads that have the same outside visible result, which is the same as those that interfere with each other
00:33:59 <oerjan> so saying that any particular thread actually runs is slightly dubious in my mind. although i guess the math works out.
00:34:17 <kmc> now we're getting into interpretation of QM territory :)
00:34:29 <kmc> bring back zzo38 the neutral monist!
00:34:30 <oerjan> i guess
00:34:34 <oerjan> oh no
00:34:58 <quintopia> Zzo38's Neutral Monastery
00:35:00 <ais523> I know that someone who allegedly know what they were talking about claimed that practical quantum computers would be proof of the many-worlds interpretation
00:35:04 * quintopia applies to join
00:35:14 <ais523> on the basis that there wasn't enough computational power in the universe, thus the computation must extend through more than one
00:35:36 <quintopia> seems doubtful
00:36:30 <oerjan> my view seems to be heading towards the fundamentals being information and consciousness, which only partially correspond to matter and mind

00:37:09 <boily> quinthellopia!
00:37:19 <boily> good char siu evening!
00:37:38 <oerjan> but still i'm not really monist because i don't see how information alone can be conscious, nor consciousness alone can have ordered experiences
00:37:40 <kmc> ais523: what basis did they have for making an assertion about the amout of comput. power in the universe?
00:38:18 <ais523> kmc: I think it was based on the volume of the universe and the theoretical maximum information storage density
00:38:46 <quintopia> oerjan: no that's wrong you're crazy hth

00:44:13 <oerjan> quintopia: i must be crazy i though aaronson treated that poor crackpot who challenged him to a P vs. NP bet the other day rather unnecessarily rudely.

00:49:39 <quintopia> zzo38: are you, in fact, a neutral monist?
00:49:52 <zzo38> quintopia: I think so.
00:49:56 <ais523> if a constructive proof of P=NP were discovered (e.g. P-time algo for 3-SAT), just how badly would it destroy the world?
00:50:35 <oerjan> ais523: assuming the polynomial is also reasonably small, all public key crypto, *whoosh*
00:50:37 <ais523> like, would we recover quickly from the death of all widely used crypto? would nothing happen because people fixed issues before it could be exploited? would the new algorithm lead to an eternal age of peace and prosperity?
00:50:40 <ais523> oerjan: yeah, exactly
00:51:15 <oerjan> and it would destroy public key crypto in _general_, unlike quantum computers (afaik)
00:52:07 <zzo38> It may mix up things badly but not the destruction of the world. necessary. And maybe P=NP is untrue which means there is no valid proof (but maybe that, too, is unprovable).

00:54:09 <oerjan> it might also put a dent in private key crypto that isn't truly unbreakable like one time pads
00:54:29 <zzo38> Possibly that too.
00:56:01 <oerjan> since it might allow you to find by guessing which key gives the most readable decrypted message
00:56:11 <oerjan> or something like that
00:57:11 <oerjan> (this doesn't work for one time pad because then _all_ readable messages are given by some key)
00:59:29 <quintopia> oerjan: i read the thread. it didn't seem that bad to me.
01:01:32 <quintopia> ais523: crypto would recover if quantum crypto became readily available. however, all my BTC becomes worthless then, so let's hope it doesn't happen.
01:02:52 <newsham> lots of things become worthless if that happens
01:03:00 <newsham> plus lots of your previous encrypted data is magically transparent
01:03:07 <newsham> cryptocalypse
01:03:44 <quintopia> eh i don't have much in the way of encrypted data i need to keep private
01:07:00 <oerjan> quintopia: hm i'm not meaning rude in an "insult with swear words" sense, but rude in a "doesn't try to understand that the other guy sees things differently (albeit insanely) and calls him dishonest if he doesn't live up demands he's never accepted" sense.
01:07:20 <oerjan> *up to
01:09:00 <elliott> It is that you bet $200k, keeping your confidence about the matter, but you have the choice of paying as low as one (1) US dollar, AND I have the right to refuse any amount above $1. I think that is clear. Let me know if you understand otherwise.
01:09:04 <elliott> what.
01:09:17 <quintopia> i see it as him being a busy guy who does have time or mental energy to try to understand every crackpot he comes in contact with. he dismissed a potentially lengthy and fruitless comment thread in order to keep the SNR high for the rest of his readers.
01:09:43 <oerjan> oh well

01:46:53 <Sgeo> Hmm, I wonder if trying to define lenses in Scheme is as silly as trying to define do notation in Scheme
01:54:45 <FreeFull> I'm not sure how well it'd work without the types
01:55:01 <FreeFull> You'd need a generic map, at the very least

01:56:49 -!- boily has quit (Quit: AMŒBAL CHICKEN).
01:56:54 <Sgeo> Need, or want?
01:57:05 <Sgeo> Certainly want it for mapped/traverse, but...
01:57:22 <Sgeo> I believe Racket's map is generic across sequences but not all possible functors
01:57:33 <Sgeo> Or are you talking about the zipper with delimited continuation thing?
01:57:52 <fizzie> ~metar EFHK
01:57:56 <fizzie> ...
01:58:00 <fizzie> I keep *doing* it.
01:58:30 <oerjan> couldn't you just pass the map function to the lens as an argument
01:59:08 <oerjan> i guess that ruins lens composition = function composition, but scheme isn't big on the latter anyway, i think
01:59:25 <Sgeo> I'm completely ignoring lens composition = function composition
01:59:28 <Sgeo> I really don't see the point
01:59:43 <Sgeo> I have a lens as a structure containing a getter and a modifier
01:59:50 <oerjan> ah.
02:00:00 <Sgeo> Should I have it have a setter too? Are there lens-like things that have setters but no modifiers?
02:00:31 <oerjan> hm lens library's Setter is a modifier, anyway
02:01:16 <elliott> Sgeo: if you really don't see the point, then you really don't see the point of lens, which is composition with the subtyping hierarchy
02:01:17 <oerjan> and it's at the end of the hierarchy, so nothing weaker
02:01:40 <elliott> if you just want to define lenses then ok. (but they're boring)
02:02:48 <Sgeo> elliott: I'm kind of allowing the definition of lenses with no getter, although not in a particularly clean way (just causing composition to error if the composed lens's getter is attempted to be used)
02:02:48 <oerjan> <fizzie> I keep *doing* it. <-- i note he managed to accidentally evade your question, too
02:02:56 <Sgeo> Not really sure what other types of things there are :/
02:04:02 <oerjan> Sgeo: have you looked at the diagram at http://hackage.haskell.org/package/lens
02:04:13 <Sgeo> I... tried, once
02:04:17 <Sgeo> I can try again
02:04:21 <elliott> traversals, lenses, prisms, isos are important
02:04:37 <elliott> the weakened versions of those without setting too, to a lesser degree
02:05:16 <oerjan> hm MonadicFold is that a bit new?
02:05:16 <Sgeo> I think I have traversals covered (or, as well as can be given the lack of generic traverse), isos are stronger than lenses, aren't they? But I do want prisms, haven't given them enough thought
02:05:34 <elliott> you don't have traversals unless they compose with lenses
02:05:39 <elliott> oerjan: no
02:06:13 <Sgeo> What's the difference between a traversal and a setter?
02:06:27 <oerjan> ok
02:06:29 <elliott> um, most everything
02:08:05 <Sgeo> Maybe I should give some thought to attempting a van whatshisname based implementation
02:09:11 <Sgeo> Also, Racket sucks enough at nested data structures that even lenses, by themselves, are interesting...
02:09:12 <elliott> not possible in scheme
02:09:31 <elliott> you need a proper type system with HKP and typeclasses (or else subtyping, maybe, possibly, if it's flexible enough)
02:09:39 <elliott> hmm
02:09:43 <elliott> or else awful ugly runtime stuff I guess
02:09:47 <elliott> but I don't want to think about that
02:10:09 <Sgeo> HKP?
02:10:55 <Sgeo> Also, I don't really get how typeclasses can be mandatory unless there are functions that need to be polymorphic on the return type. Racket does have generic functions
02:10:58 <elliott> higher-kinded polymorphism
02:11:17 <elliott> anyway, I suggest you study the design of the lens library more. then you will be able to make your own judgements

05:14:03 <zzo38> Perhaps a more versatile sorting system would allow two inputs so one is used as the sort key. (For example, the other input could be generated using sed)
05:14:20 <kmc> you need 'cut' to get past a certain point in the game right
05:14:27 <kmc> as well as 'surf' and maybe some others
05:14:28 <zzo38> But a UNIX pipe doesn't take two inputs.
05:14:41 <zzo38> kmc: Yes, you need 'cut' and 'surf', at least.

06:36:39 <ais523> zzo38: it isn't a real word
06:36:51 <zzo38> ais523: Then what is the proper word?
06:36:57 <ais523> I'm not sure
06:37:04 <ais523> oh, right
06:37:05 <ais523> "sedate"
06:37:07 <password2> to put someone to sleep
06:37:13 <ais523> not exactly right, but pretty close
06:37:25 <zzo38> OK
06:37:30 <password2> sedate implies some force though
06:38:07 <zzo38> What kinds of force?
06:38:23 <ais523> password2: not necessarily, it could also involve sleeping pills or similar
06:40:43 <password2> which still is some force manner
06:41:56 <password2> your forcing the person to sleep
06:42:08 <password2> they are not going to sleep naturaly
06:44:15 <password2> and sedate does not always imply sleep too
06:44:27 <password2> languages suck
06:45:01 <ais523> well at least it's a real word :-(
06:45:10 <password2> hehe
06:45:23 <password2> you can also say you tuck someone in
06:45:40 <password2> it depends on what you want to say obviously
06:47:15 <zzo38> I want to say to make them to sleep even if they would not ordinarily to do so in such a daytime.
06:47:34 <password2> ah , then sedate is mote apt
06:47:35 <ais523> "tire"? that means "to make tired", which also isn't quite the same
06:47:47 <password2> *more

07:20:18 <zzo38> A deck consisting of fifty-nine basic energy plus BULBASAUR [Lv15] is *guaranteed* to beat a deck consisting of fifty-nine basic energy plus MEWTWO [Lv53], even though the latter is OK in many cases (but less than 50%), and the former is pretty bad in general.
07:20:52 <zzo38> I can give you the card texts if you want them.
07:20:54 <ais523> does the bulbasaur have some protection from paralysis?
07:21:07 <ais523> by the way, it's usual to say the species and set that the card comes from, rather than species and level
07:21:10 <zzo38> ais523: No, but MEWTWO [Lv53] doesn't paralyze.
07:21:12 <ais523> because species/level can be ambiguous sometimes
07:21:18 <ais523> zzo38: oh, just blocks damage
07:21:36 <zzo38> ais523: It is ambiguous only with the newer sets, not in the original game, which is the only one I am considering.
07:22:03 <zzo38> (And, species/set can be ambiguous too, but only with some sets)
07:23:09 <zzo38> BULBASAUR [Lv15] has 5 HP and the following two attacks: - { * } RECOVER: Remove one damage from this card. - { % } POISON SEED: Defending pokemon card is poisoned.
07:23:43 <zzo38> MEWTWO [Lv53] has 6 HP and the attacks: - { @* } PSYCHIC [1+]: Add 1 damage per energy card attached to opponent's active pokemon card. - { @@ } BARRIER: You must discard one energy card attached to this card in order to use this attack. All effects of attacks (including damage) that affect this card are prevented during opponent's next turn.
07:23:51 <zzo38> Do you see how it works?
07:23:53 <ais523> and the poison effect beats mewtwo
07:24:06 <ais523> before it can get Barrier in place
07:24:38 <zzo38> Actually, the poison by itself isn't quite enough.
07:24:58 <zzo38> There are three other cards that can guarantee poison on first turn, but none of them are good enough.
07:25:21 <ais523> actually, I think the Mewtwo wins
07:25:24 <ais523> it just uses Psychic
07:25:51 <zzo38> I did consider that, and that is why WEEDLE [Lv15] and ODDISH [Lv21] lose.
07:26:21 <ais523> Mewtwo does 20 (or 2 with your notation) damage per turn: 10, plus 10 for the Grass energy that Bulbasaur attaches to be able to use Poison Seed
07:26:35 <zzo38> Yes, but you can recover!
07:27:16 <ais523> oh right, poison does 20 per turn, doesn't it
07:27:18 <ais523> not 10
07:27:23 <ais523> because it triggers on both players' turns
07:27:32 <zzo38> Yes, it triggers on both player's turn.
07:28:20 -!- nooodl has quit (Quit: Ik ga weg).
07:29:09 <zzo38> Now hopefully you can understand it.
07:30:08 <ais523> so the thing about that mewtwo deck is, why not use four mewtwo rather than one?
07:30:45 <ais523> you lose the ability to attach energy on the turn you play a mewtwo, but the opponent probably can't oneshot it
07:30:48 <ais523> so you can get back to the same situation again
07:31:25 <zzo38> I suppose it may sometimes work, but not always, and anyways that isn't the original deck.
07:31:59 <zzo38> You need to actually get the second one in time. If you do, then yes it works, in this case.
07:32:43 <zzo38> However, having four Mewtwo cards makes it worse against some other decks (those with GUST OF WIND, for example).
07:32:53 <ais523> ah right
07:33:18 <ais523> they actually reprinted Gust of Wind recently, as Pokémon Catcher
07:33:28 <ais523> and it was one of the best cards legal in only-recent-cards-are-allowed games
07:34:15 <zzo38> OK, although I am considering only the original game. Yes it is a pretty good card.
07:34:28 <Sgeo> "the care and feeding of lenses"
07:34:32 <Sgeo> This amuses me for some reason
07:34:56 <ais523> it's better nowadays because people play so many Pokémon that have low HP but good effects from the bench
07:35:01 <ais523> and try to never let them become active
07:38:16 <zzo38> OK
07:39:55 <Sgeo> Hmm, would I need to allow arbitrary Applicatives, or can I allow merely Identity, Const, and ... others specifically needed for lenses?
07:40:20 <zzo38> I don't like the new game much, and play the old one in either "cube constructed" format (there is a list of valid cards, and you can include up to four of any of them), or "cube draft" format (a bunch of cards are mixed up and drafted; you may then take any of them plus any number of basic energy cards to make a 60-card deck, and rules for evolution are a bit less strict).
07:40:29 <zzo38> But mostly I like the Pokemon card puzzles.
07:41:23 <zzo38> If you can make up any, please show to me; I like to see it, too.
07:43:52 <zzo38> (Note: You are allowed to include cards you do not own any copies of. This is the difference from the standard format.)
07:45:24 <zzo38> I happen to find that the tactics involved in Pokemon card (at least the original game) are extremely positional.
07:46:02 <zzo38> I don't know if you (or anyone else) agree/disagree with this statement.
08:00:05 <zzo38> I like Magic: the Gathering card puzzle too. Do you know how to buy that book?

08:38:53 <zzo38> Did anyone ever, in a game of chess, checkmate with a en passan move?

08:43:19 <ais523> it's possible but the conditions that can do it are very contrived
08:50:27 <zzo38> Yes, I believe that
08:53:47 <zzo38> I have seen a chess puzzle involving checkmate by en passan.
08:57:07 <Jafet> This should be easy to search for
08:57:17 <Jafet> ?4 ?x?3#

09:22:31 <Jafet> http://www.mark-weeks.com/chess/pgn/
09:24:13 <zzo38> Without downloading them I don't know what time-periods/tournaments; do you know which ones are in the files *you* downloaded? (I don't even know which file you downloaded, either)
09:24:37 <Jafet> I downloaded all of them
09:24:43 <ais523> zzo38: if it's Black's move, Ka1 (from a2); if it's White's move, Ka1 (from b1), then Black played Kc1 in response
09:24:51 <Jafet> So, I don't know which file it is in either
09:24:55 <ais523> I feel like I'm missing something
09:25:23 <ais523> oh, the Ka1 if it's Black's move captures a knight that just gave discovered check
09:25:27 <zzo38> Jafet: Well, do you know what time periods they span?
09:25:28 <ais523> that's probably the thing you're meant to work out
09:25:55 <zzo38> ais523: Yes, that is my solution too; the king moved from a2 to a1, capturing a knight.
09:29:34 <coppro> oh jeez

14:09:50 <Slereah__> Maybe using 2+1 D quantum fields
14:11:10 <Slereah__> Possibly some Befunge like structure
14:12:25 <ais523> even "regular" quantum programs are an esolang
14:12:42 <Slereah__> Who knows
14:12:49 <Slereah__> Maybe in the future, they won't be~
14:12:58 <Slereah__> High school kids will learn about quantum java
14:13:43 <Slereah__> And quantum php
14:14:50 <ais523> now I'm wondering whether to hope quantum PHP is never invented
14:14:58 <ais523> or to hope that it is invented so I can see what sort of disaster it is
14:15:06 <ais523> I think I'll go for "invented, but nobody uses it"
14:15:24 <Slereah__> If you crash it it will destroy the entire universe!
14:15:49 <ais523> Slereah__: the destroy_the_universe function is implemented so as to be able to quantum bogosort, I take it?
14:15:59 <ais523> also because the name's long enough to avoid hash collisions
14:16:00 <Slereah__> It would certainly be nice
14:16:16 <Slereah__> Quantum bogosort sounds like a good test program for my quantum computer
14:16:30 <ais523> (PHP's original hash function was mostly based on strlen)
14:16:37 <Slereah__> I guess a quantum befunge kind of thing would go well with my recent learning of object oriented things
14:17:29 <ais523> Befunge is OO?
14:17:42 <Slereah__> No, but I can't be arsed to write it entirely in C
14:18:49 <Slereah__> I guess I'll just try some particle beams, quantum gates and detectors

18:59:23 <FreeFull> Sgeo: Racket doesn't have a fmap that works on, say, functions?
19:01:17 <Sgeo> How many non-Haskell languages do you know provide a generic map that is as generic as Haskell's fmap?
19:01:51 <kmc> scala prolly

19:02:42 <Sgeo> FreeFull: person tried to derive count based on fmap. When I asked what happens when used on a function, they said that fmap should not be lazy
19:02:49 <Sgeo> Racket logs are public
19:03:00 <Sgeo> <mithos28> (fmap f c) should call f over every element in c before returning
19:03:01 <Sgeo> <mithos28> if it doesn't and calls f later, f may be called in a different dynamic environment
19:03:01 <Sgeo> <mithos28> for certain functions this would change the behavior, i.e. one that wrote to standard out
19:03:15 <Sgeo> (This is after I attempted to describe fmap)
19:03:44 <FreeFull> What's count?
19:03:54 <FreeFull> Same as length, but generic?
19:04:05 <FreeFull> You can't do that with fmap
19:04:30 <Bike> should be e.g., not i.e.. that's what's important here
19:04:33 <Sgeo> FreeFull: e tried to, by passing fmap a function to imperatively update a variable

21:59:47 <JWinslow23> Well, not for an esoteric distussion.

23:36:53 <FreeFull> Imagine doing the same in Haskell with unsafePerformIO

23:37:14 <quintopia> that's good
23:37:33 <quintopia> obviously nothing interesting happened before you arrived
23:37:41 <FreeFull> Which requires a fold anyway
23:38:03 <FreeFull> So you'd need a generic Foldable anyway, and by that point a non-pure solution doesn't make sense anyway
