00:23:03 <oerjan> were you in ontario in autumn 95

12:36:36 <jameseb> what language is fungot written in?
12:36:36 <fungot> jameseb: i much prefer one-implementation languages. if they're interpreted as comments the program should use append! if its result *doesn't* depend on the base language
12:37:35 <fungot> https://github.com/fis/fungot/blob/master/fungot.b98
12:41:35 <jameseb> that's quite a complex program to use a language like befunge for

12:52:31 <mroman> fizzie has been secretly replacing code inside big company software with befunge code.

12:53:13 <mroman> how can we hack TIOBE to display befunge on the top
12:54:07 <b_jonas> you measure befunge in _lines_
12:54:26 <mroman> code is measured in lines.
12:55:15 <b_jonas> but befunge is a two-dimensional language
12:55:24 <fizzie> Maybe they can be diagonal lines.
12:56:40 <mroman> you can always write a paper about how to measure code in 2D languages
12:56:54 <b_jonas> fungot, how do you measure code in two-dimensional languages?
12:56:54 <fungot> b_jonas: 150 euros. :p)) t?
12:57:13 <fizzie> Apparently you measure it in money.
12:57:14 <mroman> characters without nops of course
12:58:40 <b_jonas> can it simulate anything with only quasi-linear slowdown?
12:59:10 <b_jonas> it has random access get and put instructions so I presume it can, but the control options are a bit limited

13:22:04 <b_jonas> there's a set delta to arbitrary value instruction? is that normal or an extension?
13:24:57 <b_jonas> oh, the x instruction in befunge98

20:47:49 <b_jonas> ais523: have you ever used libxml++ (the C++ binding for gnome libxml2) or some other library with a C++ or C interface for parsing XML and HTML? I'd like to know which library to look at.
20:48:20 <ais523> b_jonas: I haven't, the closest I've come is building something that depends on xerxes
20:50:45 <ais523> I think it's an XML library

22:03:46 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[Beatnik]] http://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=42355&oldid=42213 * Chris Pressey * (+1069) Describe the comp.class and (intentional) shortcomings (yes Cliff, it *is* arguably rather rude.)
22:07:47 <boily> London is very far away for almost all points on the Earth spheroid.
22:08:05 <Taneb> I suppose I am relatively close to London
22:08:36 <Taneb> But I am about as far away from London as it is possible to be and that fact to still hold true!
22:08:57 <oerjan> Taneb: 's ok if you were in london you'd just complain that the mill talk is too far to walk
22:08:59 <boily> something something compact manifold something.
22:09:26 <Taneb> oerjan, London's pretty big
22:09:42 <Taneb> Like as big as the rest of the UK put together or something
22:10:17 <Taneb> oerjan, also I need your advice
22:10:25 <Taneb> I seem to be becoming a Hero against my will
22:10:42 <oerjan> being the capital of the largest empire the world has ever seen tends to do that.
22:11:05 <shachaf> oerjan: wouldn't it be more likely with the smallest
22:11:11 <Taneb> Like, people seem to think I am a paragon of good
22:11:27 <oerjan> shachaf: well the UK was just a small part of the empire
22:11:54 <Taneb> oerjan, by population it was the second-biggest
22:12:24 <HackEgo> /home/hackbot/hackbot.hg/multibot_cmds/lib/limits: line 5: exec: alignment: not found
22:12:25 <oerjan> hard to compete with exponential growth.
22:12:32 <boily> hm... no alignment command.
22:12:45 <Taneb> London was the second city in the world to get a population over 1000000
22:13:29 <shachaf> san francisco still has a population below 1000000 :'(
22:13:37 <Taneb> shachaf, SF is weird
22:13:48 <Taneb> oerjan, how do I not seem such a paragon of good
22:13:53 <oerjan> i'd vaguely thought the chinese would have beat that but i guess marco polo wasn't talking about individual cities?

22:14:10 <oerjan> Taneb: you need to work on your evil overlord plans hth
22:14:51 <Taneb> shachaf, but one of my housemates lived there for a while
22:16:31 <Taneb> oerjan, I kind of lost my evil overlord plans
22:16:40 <Taneb> Step 1 was stealing nuclear weapons
22:16:45 <oerjan> well i guess you're doomed then
22:17:04 <oerjan> talk to ais523 he has experience on surviving as lawful good hth
22:17:11 <Taneb> And the last step was betraying all my former friends and not giving them the reward I promised
22:17:19 <Taneb> I'm not so sure I'm lawful
22:17:30 <ais523> you could be neutral or chaotic good, I guess
22:17:35 <ais523> or true or chaotic neutral
22:17:35 <Taneb> Might even be chaotic I think
22:17:36 <oerjan> Taneb: i think that last step _could_ be against the evil overlord list.
22:18:14 <Taneb> I think I may well be chaotic good
22:18:23 <boily> Taneb: have you ever built overcomplicated contraptions to lure in, snare and menace good people?
22:18:33 <Taneb> boily, not that I can recall
22:18:37 <oerjan> does his haskell programs count
22:18:51 <boily> oerjan: I think so.
22:19:13 <shachaf> oerjan: no truly good people would be tempted by a haskell program hth
22:19:20 <Taneb> That puts me into minion territory
22:19:24 <boily> Taneb: do you have an unhealthy fascination towards lasers, death rays, disintegration and other zeerusty weapons?
22:20:02 <boily> Taneb: is that obsession instead channeled in the direction of bananas and yellow curved fruits?
22:20:17 <Taneb> I don't really like bananas
22:21:22 <boily> module haskellisms, you're a paragon of goodness.
22:21:31 <oerjan> shachaf: that's what a really devious overlord would say
22:21:59 <oerjan> Taneb: what about lenses and barbed wire?
22:22:22 <Taneb> oerjan, in the physical sense, the morphismy sense, or the kmetty sense?
22:22:32 <oerjan> in the ambiguous sense, duh
22:23:21 <int-e> oerjan: how about the seventh sense?
22:23:58 <int-e> boily: the sixth was already taken
22:24:31 <boily> pray tell what's the seventh?
22:24:36 * oerjan only remembers that seventh sense is some kind of old term for almanac or something
22:24:47 <oerjan> in norwegian translation
22:25:23 <Taneb> oerjan, is the most resent GG the first time Zeetha and Bang have met?
22:25:46 * int-e would rather know whether cake has played a role before
22:26:42 <oerjan> Taneb: or at least talked... was bang there in sturmhalten?
22:27:23 <Taneb> oerjan, Bang was in Sturmhalten with Klaus
22:30:47 -!- Sprocklem has joined.
22:31:12 <int-e> right. http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20061220
22:33:32 <oerjan> she didn't show up until they'd stopped talking, though.
22:34:55 <int-e> Interestingly I don't recognize her by the name "Bang"... "Bangladesh DuPree" says the wiki.
22:35:22 <oerjan> well yes, bang is a nickname some use...
22:36:03 <int-e> the wiki does not mention cake on DuPree's page.
22:38:33 <Taneb> THat's not much of an interaction
22:39:44 <int-e> Uh, what about this: 'By the time she recovered, the airship had been taken by pirates. (It's speculated, but not proven, that these pirates were those commanded by the infamous pirate queen Bangladesh DuPree.)' ... did the wiki writers make that bit up?
22:39:52 <int-e> (from http://girlgenius.wikia.com/wiki/Zeetha,_Daughter_of_Chump )
22:41:38 <int-e> good way to seed a rumor, I suppose
22:42:24 <oerjan> int-e: it's an obvious speculation to make
22:42:53 <int-e> Yeah, except for the bit where DuPree is still alive. OTOH she *is* a survivor.
22:43:21 <int-e> Best way to survive a fight if you ask me.
22:43:22 <oerjan> it's mentioned in dupree's story
22:44:45 <oerjan> oh it refers to one of the novels.
22:45:03 <oerjan> "Zeetha's involvement is practically confirmed by Agatha H. and the Airship City, where it is mentioned that Bang returned to her fortress to find it in flaming ruins and describes the aftermath of the attack the same way Zeetha described the aftermath of her killing of the pirates."
22:47:47 <int-e> Then this encounter could be ... interesting.
22:49:04 <oerjan> it could be more interesting if bang finds out zeetha and gil are related
22:50:39 <Taneb> oerjan, I am pretty sure that Zeetha and Gil haven't found that out yet
22:51:14 <oerjan> ...i think zeetha knows.
22:53:33 <oerjan> my little theory is that klaus's claim that the skifanderians would want to kill gil (for being alive, and (also my theory) a male with skifandrian blood) ...
22:54:06 <oerjan> is technically correct, but that zeetha doesn't want to kill him, and so prefers to pretend she doesn't know.
22:55:18 -!- ProofTechnique has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
22:55:20 <oerjan> (my inner theory is based on skifandrians basically being amazons and the amazons killed their male children)
22:56:01 <oerjan> or at least they would kill a male child of a _queen_
22:56:36 <oerjan> or anyone who could be feared to want to upset the matriarchal order
22:58:51 <oerjan> ok i looked it up and i'm not the first to make that theory http://girlgenius.wikia.com/wiki/Gilgamesh_Wulfenbach/Mad

23:48:07 <oerjan> zeetha and bang also met at the circus but zeetha didn't say anything http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20041227
23:58:42 <Taneb> Hmm http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20131220 seems to suggest they met in the timeskip
