01:55:33 <Anarchokawaii> hello

01:59:42 <\oren\> no i apparently speled it right the first time
01:59:53 <\oren\> it's just a weird looking word
02:00:25 <Anarchokawaii> \oren\
02:00:59 <Anarchokawaii> what if someone made a scope oriented language
02:02:09 <\oren\> scope oriented? what would that mean?
02:02:34 <Anarchokawaii> like
02:02:45 <Anarchokawaii> it's highly specific about scopes and stuff
02:02:54 <Anarchokawaii> so much of the syntax
02:03:08 <Anarchokawaii> would be oriented about which scope something is in
02:03:50 <Anarchokawaii> i just think it kinda is annoying that you are limited to 3 scopes in most programming languages

03:59:43 <izabera> does anyone know the gif format well enough to write a gif mostly by hand?
04:00:02 <izabera> http://giflib.sourceforge.net/whatsinagif/bits_and_bytes.html i'm reading these docs and some things are confusing
04:00:51 <izabera> like, what's the difference between the color resolution and the size of the color table? :\
04:00:57 <izabera> in their example it's the same value
04:01:00 <zzo38> I don't know it well enough, although I have once written a program to alter the palette of a GIF picture
04:01:09 <izabera> neat
04:01:49 <izabera> i'm just writing a program to generate a gif from a go match
04:02:33 <quintopia> izabera: i suppose one could write an uncompressed gif by hand, but i aint gonna try to get optimal lzw compression with mental math :p
04:02:54 <izabera> well i'll do uncompressed first
04:03:57 <izabera> surely it won't take too much space anyway, it uses like only 3 colors and at most ~300 frames

04:13:49 <izabera> but i want to do it by hand :3
04:13:53 <izabera> for reasons
04:13:58 <quintopia> like
04:14:09 <izabera> like learning purposes i guess
04:14:23 <quintopia> by typing bytes into a text editor one by one?
04:14:44 <izabera> not that hardcore

04:16:30 <izabera> i already have a way to do it, with a program called sgf2misc

04:17:00 <rdococ> you know how there are games of "werewolf" in irc channels?
04:17:00 <izabera> and it outputs separate gif files and you have to create the animation with imagemagick
04:17:16 <rdococ> why hasn't a murder mystery game been ported to irc yet?
04:17:37 <zzo38> You could also to output PNG or Farbfeld, and then combine with ImageMagick (and ffpng if necessary)
04:17:39 <izabera> https://i.imgur.com/9L90oYk.gif sample output
04:18:02 <izabera> farbfeld is big endian :|

04:18:48 <izabera> nice :o
04:19:16 <zzo38> Yes it is big endian, although it can still be use

09:22:00 <Taneb> If a language is 1-dimensional textually but 2-dimensional conceptually
09:22:22 <Taneb> Should it be categorized as "Two-dimensional languages"?
09:23:39 <ais523> Taneb: see how I categorised Formula :-D
09:24:33 <Taneb> The language I'm thinking about is COMPLEX, which I need to finish the article for but is described on my esolangs page
09:24:37 <ais523> more seriously, Paintfuck fits your description and doesn't seem to be categorized as multi-dimensional
09:25:06 <ais523> I'd call COMPLEX two-dimensional
09:25:13 <Taneb> Instructions are conceptually laid out on a grid but written sequentially with line numbers describing their location a la BASIC
09:26:28 <Taneb> I feel like COMPLEX is the language of mine I'd have the easiest time writing a compiler for
09:28:10 <Taneb> I might give it ago after my exam on the 15th
09:28:25 <ais523> well, the physical order of the source doesn't matter, right?
09:28:37 <ais523> just like you can line-permute a BASIC program and it doesn't change the meaning
09:29:11 <Taneb> Not at all
09:29:22 <Taneb> I ran the example program through shuf
09:29:48 <Taneb> Is this a "syntax is the least important part of a language" situation?
09:31:01 <ais523> I think so, unless you're trying very hard to make it relevant
09:31:10 <ais523> (which in this case you might be; I'm not sure)
09:31:45 <Taneb> The syntax was where I started with the language
09:31:59 <Taneb> I wanted BASIC but with complex line numbers, and a way to make them useful
09:32:31 <Taneb> And then I added features until I thought it had enough features
09:32:41 <Taneb> And then I removed GOTO because I realised it wasn't necessary
09:33:25 <Taneb> That's basically how the language happened
09:34:50 <Taneb> I mostly did it to see how easy it was to use Alex and Happy for lexing and parsing in Haskell
09:35:31 <Taneb> (the answer is "easier than I expected, and for this an awful lot easier than parsec"

14:16:18 -!- tromp has joined.
14:17:07 <b_jonas> \oren\: someone saw the rich history of the {Phoenician, Greek, Coptic, Latin, Blackletter, Old Church Slavonic, Russian, Serbian} family of alphabets, with all the crazy variants of cursive writing that gave rise to different sets of lowercase letters, and decided to one-up it,
14:17:14 <b_jonas> just to show that he's the best conscripter ever.
14:18:03 <b_jonas> \oren\: and they hid a lot of evidence to fool archeologists that it has a two thousand year old history, plus mind controlled ten thousand people to start teaching it.
14:18:46 <b_jonas> \oren\: She probably also saw the Armenian alphabet, and correctly figured out that that's the *wrong* way to create an alphabet not derived from phoenician.
14:20:12 <Taneb> ?
14:20:25 <boily> անհեթեթություն:
14:21:25 <Taneb> That does not render for me
14:21:47 <\oren\> it's Armenian letters
14:22:27 <Taneb> I went to look at the alphabet on Wikipedia
14:22:29 <\oren\> I recently noticed that my font is missing some Georgian letters
14:22:45 <Taneb> It looks... influenced by Cyrillic/Greek/Latin
14:23:39 <\oren\> yah, armenian looks like alternate-universe latin or something, while georgian looks like nothing I can describe
14:24:12 <b_jonas> Taneb: the typography of Georgian is influenced a lot by Greek, Latin, Cyrillic, whereas Hebrew and Arabic and Braille and the American Sign Language fingerspelling have completely different typographical conventions from Latin.
14:25:00 <Taneb> \oren\, Georgian and Burmese I get mixed up
14:25:11 <b_jonas> Taneb: However, the letter shapes of Georgian aren't derived from Phoenician, Greek, Latin etc, whereas the letter shapes (and alphabetic order where approperiate) of Hebrew, Arabic, and some of european Braille and ASL fingerspelling _are_ derived from it.
14:25:29 <b_jonas> The typography and the letters are two different dimensions.
14:26:04 <\oren\> Taneb: ooh, interesting
14:26:31 <Taneb> I'd be extremely surprised if they share a common influence, though

18:46:01 <b_jonas> well, I never really understood how the french semi-vowels are supposed to work
18:46:19 <\oren\> maybe the /i/ is a bit more toaward /ɪ/ and glides up toward /i/?
18:46:38 <\oren\> and they write that as /ij/
18:46:52 <b_jonas> I pretend they're just variants of vowels that the linguists invented to claim that the two meanings of "suis" are distinguished in pronunciations

20:22:55 <HackEgo> python = ProgrammingLanguage(attrs=[plattrs['WHITESPACE_SENSITIVE'], plattrs['INTERPRETED'], *plparadigms['IMPERATIVE', 'FUNCTIONAL']])
20:23:04 <hppavilion[1]> Not perfect, but it works
20:23:31 <hppavilion[1]> And plparadigms[x, y] is nice because it demonstrates the use of the __getitem__ method for custom objects
20:23:48 <Taneb> oerjan, that'd make you... 45?
20:24:37 <int-e> I hate it when X11 breaks.
20:25:03 <hppavilion[1]> `? brainfuck
20:25:05 <HackEgo> brainfuck is the integral of the family of terrible esolangs.

20:27:13 <b_jonas> well, someone did make a trivial brainfuck substitution generator once

20:28:22 <hppavilion[1]> Note that the `bf` command is, of course, a brainfuck interpreter
20:28:45 <hppavilion[1]> The -c flag obviously interprets its argument directly, and -t makes it return its tape
20:28:56 <shachaf> What?
20:29:04 <shachaf> Why are you doing these things to the wisdom database?
20:29:27 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: I'm making definitions of languages in the languages themselves
20:29:46 <oerjan> Taneb: excellent arithmetic would buy again
20:30:15 <shachaf> Maybe put those somewhere else? They don't really fit in.
20:30:15 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: brainfuck had to be *nix'd though, because it doesn't have support for the libraries that would be necessary for this
20:30:46 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Well, it started with lisp, because lisp didn't have a wisdom entry
20:30:51 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: But I can do that if you like

20:31:26 <Taneb> oerjan, sorry for the slow response, I was having an accidental nap then getting a drink of water and otherwise not paying attention to IRC
20:31:52 <Taneb> oerjan, when is your birthday?
20:32:46 <int-e> . o O ( after christmas )
20:33:22 <oerjan> i was born on a perfect day hth
20:33:29 <ais523> oerjan: the 6th and/or 28th?
20:33:35 <shachaf> both of those
20:33:36 <ais523> hmm, 28th of June?
20:33:40 <shachaf> yes
20:34:14 <oerjan> it could only go downhill from there, really.
20:34:17 <rdococ> I forgot how to list all the channels I havr egistered
20:34:44 <rdococ> wow, shachaf was born on tau day?
20:34:49 <rdococ> no
20:34:50 <rdococ> oerjan
20:34:54 <rdococ> I mean
20:34:55 <rdococ> wait
20:35:03 <rdococ> who's the one who was born on a perfect day?
20:35:03 <ais523> rdococ: /ns listchans is the closest I can see
20:35:06 <rdococ> I got confused
20:35:14 <int-e> That may be the best argument pro tau that I've seen so far.
20:35:21 * oerjan swats rdococ -----###
20:35:21 <ais523> look for channels where you have +F permission
20:35:24 <shachaf> please see the two words preceding "born on a perfect day" hth
20:35:27 <oerjan> int-e: well it doesn't work on me
20:35:50 <shachaf> oerjan: presumably you were born on 496-06-28
20:36:08 <shachaf> so all will be right again on 8128-06-28
20:36:30 <shachaf> dinosoerjan
20:36:34 <int-e> tsk, what was I thinking... Channel #realworld created Tue Dec 29 05:00:21 2009
20:37:15 <rdococ> oerjan was born on tau day omg
20:37:37 * oerjan swats rdococ again for good measure -----###
20:37:37 * rdococ slaps oerjan with a trout ><>
20:38:09 <oerjan> shachaf: maybe not _that_ perfect.
20:38:40 <rdococ> I'm testing a new bot I just made, using a terrible scripting language - you get three guesses as to what it is
20:39:03 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Maybe rdococ just has absurdly short scrollback?
20:39:11 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Perhaps a newsbanner-style IRC client
20:39:17 <shachaf> doesn't matter
20:39:28 <int-e> rdococ: php, lua, javascript, ruby... oops.
20:39:29 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: nah, I was typing as I was reading
20:39:35 <rdococ> int-e: no, worse
20:39:39 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: That would mean they couldn't see "I was born on a perfect day"
20:39:42 <oerjan> malbolge
20:39:50 * oerjan optimist
20:39:52 <shachaf> hppavilion[1]: but they responded to that comment
20:40:04 <rdococ> I was just reading while I typed it
20:40:06 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Yes, but they may have read it and then forgot who sent it
20:40:11 <shachaf> look
20:40:13 <shachaf> it doesn't matter
20:40:30 <int-e> rdococ: bash?
20:40:31 <Taneb> oerjan, I was born on a prime day
20:40:50 <rdococ> no, I didn't read the part about oerjan until it was too late
20:40:53 <oerjan> well we now have proof rdococ is not a goldfish, since goldfish have reasonably good memory hth
20:40:56 <rdococ> int-e: no, even worse
20:41:09 <int-e> dc
20:41:15 <rdococ> oerjan: what? I didn't forget anything...
20:41:20 <rdococ> int-e: nope, evener worser
20:41:24 <oerjan> rdococ: that's what you think
20:41:28 <int-e> (impossible, sadly)
20:41:36 <rdococ> int-e: so mSL is better than dc?
20:41:42 <Taneb> Conclusion: rdococ is actually a goldfish?
20:41:51 <int-e> (at least as far as I can see, dc cannot parse arbitrary input)
20:41:52 <rdococ> why would I be a goldfish?
20:42:05 <rdococ> int-e: MSL IS BETTER THAN SOMETHING?!
20:42:35 <rdococ> as I was saying, I'm testing my new murder mystery game on ##murder
20:43:15 <int-e> rdococ: to be fair, dc wasn't designed to be a scripting language
20:43:25 <rdococ> mSL wasn't either by the looks of it
20:43:34 <rdococ> it has the weirdest syntax
20:43:37 <rdococ> it's almost esoteric
20:43:44 <rdococ> heck, it is esoteric
20:45:26 <Taneb> rdococ, use Awk instead
20:46:31 <rdococ> I hope I don't give people the wrong impression by calling my murder mystery game bot murderbot
20:46:40 <rdococ> it just got disconnected

21:42:09 <ais523> well, that's the obvious way to write it in fungot
21:42:09 <fungot> ais523: i have only seen the movie yet, but the result will come out first :) i am happy that you seem to prefer to use plain 32-bit rgb values

21:42:34 <ais523> hmm, 32-bit rgb, what are the other 8 bits? 2⅔ bits for each channel? alpha? gamma?
21:42:37 <b_jonas> help, fungot is making sense!
21:42:37 <fungot> b_jonas: right click and choose a simplistic implementation ( conses or vectors) you'd need 3 primitives. the word " fry" makes me nervous!!
21:43:03 <b_jonas> ais523: 8 unused values usually; or 10+12+10 bits for rgb
21:43:05 <int-e> fungot: would you prefer to be boiled?
21:43:05 <fungot> int-e: you guys ever considered the concept, whereas partial continuations refers to the same port) or just use pastebin? can i borrow it?
21:43:07 <b_jonas> both of those exist
21:43:13 <ais523> b_jonas: why does the green get more bits?
21:43:33 <ais523> is it just because it's double 5:6:5?
21:43:35 <int-e> fungot: no, that thought had not occurred to me
21:43:36 <fungot> int-e: here's the problem with that is you need to use set-car! and set-cdr! too. i tried ( set!...

21:43:46 <fungot> Available: agora alice c64 ct darwin discworld enron europarl ff7 fisher fungot homestuck ic irc* iwcs jargon lovecraft nethack oots pa qwantz sms speeches ss wp youtube
21:43:54 <ais523> right, that's what I thought it was
21:44:00 <ais523> fungot's irc style normally produces the best results
21:44:00 <fungot> ais523: the bash scripts in the language
21:44:26 <ais523> now I'm wondering what esoteric subsets of bash exist
21:44:30 <ais523> there's ddsh, at least
21:44:40 <ais523> which the author of CLC-INTERCAL has used as an esolang
21:44:57 <b_jonas> ais523: green matters more for the human eyes, that's why it gets more bits. but 8 bits for each of rgb and 8 unused bits is much more common
21:46:10 <rdococ> ...
21:46:32 <ais523> b_jonas: right, this is something I discovered during the palette tests
21:46:49 <b_jonas> ais523: one esoteric subset of bash is bash without execing anything else
21:46:52 <ais523> dark greens are easier to see than dark reds or blues at a similar brightness
21:46:59 <ais523> thus darker colours are more usable with green
21:47:05 <b_jonas> people implement stuff in that sometimes, even when it doesn't make sense
21:47:08 <hppavilion[1]> Ugh
21:47:13 <ais523> b_jonas: ddsh is basically that, except a) you can exec dd, and b) you can only use the subset that exists in sh
21:47:14 <b_jonas> (sometimes it can make sense, when forking and execing is slow)
21:47:28 <fizzie> It's strange, because the irc style's also one of those I trained using my own, very crude fixed-length n-gram model collector, instead of the VariKN toolkit I used for most of the rest.
21:47:31 <hppavilion[1]> I'm implementing a BF interpreter and compiler, and I want the standard getch()-style input because it's better than buffering
21:47:32 <rdococ> I swear my internet just stopped for a minute
21:47:52 <oerjan> rdococ: mine too, if you mean irc
21:47:55 <fizzie> On the other hand, it's also much larger than the other styles.
21:48:01 <oerjan> and it's the second time
21:48:02 <hppavilion[1]> But I also want it to be able to set the input to a file instead of the stdin
21:48:02 <rdococ> oerjan: no, everything else
21:48:13 <b_jonas> fizzie: oh, being bigger helps a lot
21:48:19 <hppavilion[1]> And if it's a file, it will work the same but read from the file
21:48:28 <rdococ> oerjan: wait, you mean it did take a whole minute for another person to say something?
21:48:35 <hppavilion[1]> But python has the stdin AS a file, so I cannot distinguish them
21:48:45 <fizzie> ^style europarl
21:48:45 <fungot> Selected style: europarl (European Parliament speeches during approx. 1996-2006)
21:48:46 <hppavilion[1]> But I want to, because if they're- oh, I think I know nhow
21:48:52 <fizzie> That one's approximately the same size.
21:48:58 <rdococ> huh...?
21:49:03 <fizzie> And I like it quite a lot, although it's pretty predictable.
21:49:03 <rdococ> internet's broken, but irc is fine?
21:49:19 <fizzie> fungot: What's your take on the migrant crisis?
21:49:20 <fungot> fizzie: mr president, mrs cerdeira morterero' s report takes the same line, which caused such an uproar and upheaval that there are many, the people who suffer distress or die, and indirectly through greater transparency, even in the european union
21:50:16 -!- earendel has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds).
21:51:38 <oerjan> rdococ: it was more that a lot came through at once.
21:52:20 <rdococ> oerjan: nah, what happened was that the game I was playing froze - I could still move or jump or stuff, but everyone was walking in place, then eventually, it disconnected
21:52:47 <oerjan> <rdococ> internet's broken, but irc is fine? <-- DNS trouble?
21:53:14 <rdococ> I'll use Window's terrible diagnosis thing
21:53:32 <oerjan> although that _shouldn't_ matter for an ongoing game unless it's badly written?
21:53:44 <rdococ> what do you mean?
21:54:01 <oerjan> DNS should only matter if you need to make new connections
21:54:13 <rdococ> that's interesting...
21:54:25 <rdococ> are you saying that if I disconnect from this irc server, I won't be able to reconnect?
21:54:34 <oerjan> it's possible.
21:54:37 <rdococ> that makes sense about something that happened a few years ago
21:54:52 <rdococ> chrome mentions the dns
21:54:59 <oerjan> it's happened to me before.
21:55:17 <rdococ> the game was multiplayer
21:55:24 <oerjan> if so, try setting your DNS to something wellknown like
21:55:33 <b_jonas> fizzie: retrain it with even more irc data! and train one from the lolcat bible
21:55:33 <rdococ> my DNS?
21:55:39 <oerjan> *DNS server
21:55:46 <rdococ> how do I do that?
21:55:53 <oerjan> that's one of google's
21:55:56 <rdococ> ik
21:55:58 <b_jonas> no, the other sort of DNS
21:56:07 <rdococ> there are two kinds?
21:56:22 <oerjan> rdococ: can you open web pages, or are you still having trouble?
21:57:00 <rdococ> google doesn't work
21:57:15 <b_jonas> oh, is this the kind of problem where you have to hope you're not disconnected from irc because you wouldn't be able to disconnect?
21:57:28 <rdococ> reconnect*? if so, yes
21:57:30 <b_jonas> rdococ: turn off "Work offline" in the File menu
21:57:37 <rdococ> file menu?
21:57:41 <rdococ> in which program?
21:57:42 <b_jonas> of the browser
21:57:45 <b_jonas> firefox or similar
21:58:01 <rdococ> it's chrome, it has no file menu
21:58:12 <b_jonas> I don't know about chrome
21:58:17 <b_jonas> can't help there
21:59:22 <rdococ> indeed
21:59:26 <rdococ> it is that kind of problem
21:59:45 <rdococ> disconnected and tried to reconnect my bot
22:00:02 <rdococ> how do I set my dns
22:00:09 <rdococ> dhould I try IE?
22:00:27 <oerjan> it's not in the browser
22:00:35 <oerjan> but i'm having trouble refinding it
22:00:51 <rdococ> no, I mean, it might have a file menu
22:01:16 <fizzie> You can try opening a site by IP to verify whether it's indeed DNS trouble. Say, navigate to in Chrome.
22:01:31 <rdococ> That works.
22:02:14 <fizzie> Then the trick is likely to work, but I can't really comment on how to set it in Windows, I'm sure they've moved the setting around in every version of it.
22:02:22 <rdococ> windows 8
22:02:25 <rdococ> pls search it
22:02:36 <oerjan> i found how to display what the DNS server is, but not how to set it. i'm on W10
22:02:45 <fizzie> Well, I've got a page.
22:02:45 <rdococ> tell me how to display it
22:02:50 <fizzie> "This article will advise how to change your computer's IP address and DNS servers on Windows 8. This article applies to any version of Windows 8."
22:02:55 <fizzie> It has a lot of screenshots.
22:02:57 <rdococ> k
22:03:00 <rdococ> what do they say?
22:03:12 <fizzie> Well, they're mostly blue. There's a nice picture of a daisy as a background.
22:03:27 <rdococ> what should I type?
22:04:11 <rdococ> come on, it shouldn't take that long, and I'm worrying
22:04:12 <fizzie> The screenshots go Control Panel -> "Network and Sharing Center" -> "Change adapter settings" -> right-click on the network -> Properties -> Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCIP/IPv4) -> Properties -> "Use the following DNS server addresses".
22:05:11 <oerjan> ah that seems right
22:05:33 <oerjan> i didn't try to click on the Internet Protocol item
22:06:18 <fizzie> (Interestingly enough, the top hit for me for "windows 8 set dns server" -- the page I was quoting from -- was from the support site from the ISP I'm using. I wonder if that's just targeted ranking, or if they're just that good.)
22:06:22 <oerjan> so it works in Windows 10 too
22:07:07 <rdococ> aha
22:07:30 <hppavilion[1]> ABfCI is now officially online!

22:11:44 <coppro> not off the top of my head
22:11:48 <coppro> but I feel like I've encountered some
22:15:22 <rdococ> clopen?
22:15:29 <coppro> both closed and open
22:16:44 <Taneb> rdococ, it comes up in topology which has technical definitions for closed and open sets
22:16:49 <Taneb> That aren't mutually exclusive
