00:33:32 <boily> what happened to your eponymous backslashes?
00:33:53 <FireFly> The ones rolled the "correct" (i.e. wrong) way remind me of http://gifflar.com/wp-content/themes/gifflar/images/cinnamon-bag.png

00:34:51 <shachaf> fizzie: you'll have to roll your own cinnamon buns hth
00:34:58 <fizzie> FireFly: Yeah, Pågen's Gifflar are kind of the cheapest possible borderline-acceptable rendering of the thing.
00:34:59 -!- Frooxius has joined.
00:35:00 <shachaf> i've made them in the past, although i rolled mine incorrectly
00:35:27 <fizzie> It's a couple magnitudes off the real thing, though.
00:36:12 <FireFly> I don't think I've had any cinnamon buns rolled the finnish way
00:36:24 <fizzie> Here's something else that's annoying. In the Europe song The Final Countdown, the lyrics imply that the narrator is leaving Earth ("And maybe we'll come back / To earth, who can tell?"), and is going to Venus ("We're heading for Venus (Venus) / And still we stand tall"), but then they say: "With so many lightyears to go". What sort of Earth-Venus route *can* they be taking that has "so many ...
00:36:30 <fizzie> ... lightyears".
00:36:33 -!- tromp_ has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
00:38:44 <fizzie> FireFly: FWIW, I don't think the rolling has that much of an effect on the taste, and the BLABAR ones were perfectly acceptable. I just go "but that's wrong" whenever I see them rolled the usual way.
00:39:06 <boily> \oren\: could you enthicken 幻 hth
00:40:35 <fizzie> If any of y'all ever happen to be in the Finland, though, I'd recommend http://www.yelp.com/biz/caf%C3%A9-succes-helsinki-2
00:41:45 <boily> fizziello. “500 error. Woof, something went wrong. Sorry about that!”
00:41:54 <fizzie> Uh.
00:41:59 <shachaf> fizzie: Well, they might've left Earth a long time ago.
00:42:11 <shachaf> They aren't saying that they're on Earth now.
00:42:22 <shachaf> fizzie: I was also using Yelp to look at cinnamon buns and I also got a 500 error.
00:42:27 <FireFly> fizzie: probably.
00:44:15 <fizzie> shachaf: Well, maybe. But the first part is: "We're leaving together, -- And maybe we'll come back / To earth, who can tell? -- We're leaving ground (leaving ground) / Will things ever be the same again?"
00:44:19 <fizzie> shachaf: I mean, maybe you can read them as currently leaving some other place, and still "coming back" to Earth, but I don't think that's a very natural interpretation.
00:45:09 <fizzie> Of course (at least in this transcription) it's a lowercase-earth, so maybe it's not Earth-earth.
00:45:58 <shachaf> Well, I've never heard that song.
00:46:44 <FireFly> Huh.
00:46:50 <fizzie> We find that strange.
00:47:10 <shachaf> Well, maybe I've heard it and I just don't remember.
00:47:47 <FireFly> Maybe it's more a thing over here
00:47:53 <shachaf> fizzie: Maybe they're using lightyears as a measure of time instead of distance.
00:47:57 <shachaf> I.e. years.
00:48:29 <fizzie> I guess they're a Swedish band, that could be.
00:48:34 <FireFly> It's probably just meant to be technobabbly and sound spacey
00:48:54 <fizzie> The music video has a sign on it that says "Rökning förbjudet" and all.
00:49:03 <shachaf> I tend to just not know popular songs.
00:49:06 <shachaf> I know a few, though.
00:49:07 <fizzie> s/t"/n"/
00:51:18 <fizzie> "Europe has achieved new attention in the US due to being featured in a GEICO Insurance cable television commercial campaign viewed for many months across the US in 2015-16."
00:54:14 <shachaf> europe is so small that america hardly cares about it
00:54:19 <shachaf> http://i.imgur.com/SLBqUWY.jpg
00:57:39 <FireFly> I don't think it works like that

11:31:11 <Taneb> boily, I suppose it'd be common in any career that involves fiddly but repetitive movement of hands
11:31:15 <Taneb> Like, for example, drawing
11:31:43 <b_jonas> Taneb: no, I think it's just that we learn more about them when it happens to someone who can't draw when his hand is injured.
11:31:55 <b_jonas> It's common for everyone. Both my parents have hand hand injuries.
11:32:06 <Taneb> Oh
11:32:59 <boily> maybe it's hereditary?
11:32:59 <b_jonas> My mother injured her hand when skiing, my father injured his with a saw when woodworking, my brother has a smaller woodworking injury too.
11:33:22 <b_jonas> But you don't know about those because they don't draw webcomics.
11:34:02 <b_jonas> boily: that's possible, although I haven't caught it yet. I get my injuries in my right knee, I get a new wound there every eight years, so it will soon be time for the fourth wound.
11:34:11 <b_jonas> The third has started to fade so it's high time.

14:11:26 <b_jonas> Do you happen to know an easy trick to format floating-point numbers as decimal scientific format, but with fewer digits in the exponent than the libc sprintf writes by default?
14:13:33 -!- Sgeo has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
14:14:01 -!- AnotherTest has joined.
14:14:05 <fizzie> Isn't the exponent just an (unpadded) integer? How could you have less digits than that?
14:14:33 <b_jonas> fizzie: no, it's usually padded with zeros to at least two or three digits depending on libc, and has the sign always present
14:15:05 <b_jonas> fizzie: the C standard doesn't specify how many digits are used, so libcs can choose on themselves
14:15:49 <b_jonas> fizzie: this is actually one of the easiest ways to recognize windows's libc, because it uses three digits, and that's propagated to lots of higher level programs or functions
14:16:27 <b_jonas> fizzie: I don't think I've seen any libc use only one digit though
14:18:03 <b_jonas> `perl -eprintf "%e",exp(1)
14:18:04 <HackEgo> 2.718282e+00
14:18:17 <b_jonas> ^ that prints 2.718282e+000 on windows
14:18:41 -!- AnotherTest has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
14:21:23 <fizzie> Seems to be 2 on glibc, right.
14:24:19 <fizzie> b_jonas: The standard *does* specify how many digits there should be in the exponent, at least in C11, and the Windows libc is in violation.
14:24:59 <fizzie> C11 on the 'e' conversion: "The exponent always contains at least two digits, and only as many more digits as necessary to represent the exponent."
14:25:42 <b_jonas> fizzie: does it now? I thought it didn't, and the windows libc was in violation "only" in how it formats and scans infinite, nan, and denormal values
14:26:39 <fizzie> It's that way also in C99, but not in C89.
14:26:55 <b_jonas> fizzie: a moment, I'll read up on this
14:27:01 -!- oerjan has joined.
14:27:12 <fizzie> In C89 it's only "at least two digits", without the "only as many more as needed" add-on.
14:29:28 <fizzie> Also, C99 rationale: "For %e, C99 clarifies that small exponents contain at least 2 digits, but no more than are necessary to represent the value. Prior to C99, it was not clear that an arbitrary number of leading zeros were not allowed."
14:30:24 <b_jonas> fizzie: you're right, C99 and C11 do specify this. I didn't know that
14:31:44 <b_jonas> Ok, so my question is how I use only one digit in the exponent when that's enough.
14:32:08 <fizzie> I think you're going to have to resort to doing string processing in C.
14:32:36 <xfix> Does Windows even support anything from C99 standard library (that isn't part of C++)?
14:32:59 <b_jonas> fizzie: ok
14:33:21 <b_jonas> xfix: yes, these days (in MSVC 2013 and 2015) it has much of C99 and C11 implemented (not all though),
14:33:49 <b_jonas> xfix: in particular it does implement the rint, trunc and the lrint, ltrunc functions.
14:34:07 <fizzie> "C Runtime Library": "C99 Conformance -- Visual Studio 2015 fully implements the C99 Standard Library, with the exception of any library features that depend on compiler features not yet supported by the Visual C++ compiler (for example, <tgmath.h> is not implemented)."
14:34:09 <b_jonas> xfix: the support was quite bad in older versions though
14:34:28 <xfix> I see.
14:34:57 <xfix> I guess it's technically a bug, but I sorta doubt Microsoft would fix it because compatibility.
14:35:17 <xfix> There may be programs somewhere depending on three digits, considering this is Windows.
14:36:24 <b_jonas> xfix: I don't know about the three digits, but people almost certainly have files containing floating point infinites and nans formatted in windows's nonstandard format, and if they suddenly put a sand sscanf in the libc, the programs won't be able to read those back. It's a lose-lose situation.
14:36:40 <b_jonas> xfix: The three digits exponent is less of a problem because at least sscanf is required to parse the float either way.
14:37:30 <b_jonas> xfix: although octave, which normally prints arrays of matrices in as an aligned text-only table, does print unaligned tables on windows because it assumes the printf will use only two digits for the exponent
14:38:03 <b_jonas> but the slightly misaligned tables isn't as bad as you could get

22:32:09 <Taneb> fizzie, that I can learn Galois Theory overnight, yes
22:32:24 <shachaf> galois theory is easy
22:32:33 <shachaf> you just have, like, field extensions and groups and stuff
22:32:51 <shachaf> you can learn it in half an hour hth
22:33:06 <shachaf> fizzie: Any flour in your hair lately?
22:33:42 <fizzie> Taneb: Well, you know what they say. Watching fields scroll by for hours makes you a Galois expert overnight.
22:34:14 <Taneb> They do?
22:34:19 <fizzie> They might.
22:34:31 <fizzie> shachaf: Not since March 2015.
22:38:18 <shachaf> Taneb: consider that by the time galois was your age he had been dead for almost two years
22:38:45 <izabera> that's not the ending i expected after "by the time galois was your age"
22:38:47 <Taneb> shachaf, by the time I was my age, he'd been dead for like 220 years
22:38:58 <Taneb> izabera, he died in a duel age 20
22:39:06 <Taneb> Frankly, it's much closer to one year
22:39:09 <Taneb> I'm only 21
22:39:17 <izabera> i know that
22:39:37 <shachaf> Sure, but he was ~1 year and 5 months old.
22:39:38 <izabera> thinking with his dick instead of his brain got him killed
22:39:50 <shachaf> And you're ~21 years and 6 months old
22:40:01 <shachaf> Hmm.
22:40:11 <shachaf> Er, ~20 years
22:40:14 <izabera> turns out brains are better than dicks at thinking
22:40:15 <shachaf> Anyway you're right.
22:41:25 <Taneb> Wow, Galois died in a duel at age 17 months
22:41:30 <Taneb> He has really gifted
22:42:15 <shachaf> That's nothing. Grassmann died in a self-duel.
22:43:26 <coppro> Taneb: the Klein Four Group has an excellent song
22:45:37 <Phantom_Hoover> izabera, i mean when he let his brain do the thinking he ended up in politics and little better off
