00:51:13 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: The "random" button's target is determined serverside when the page is loaded; so if you open "random" in a new tab twice from the same page without reloading, you will get the same comic both times
00:51:53 <hppavilion[1]> And I just discovered that the "go to most recent" button is actually calculated; so if you have a page open and a new SMBC is added and you click the "most recent" button after, it will actually go to the one that was most recent when the page was loaded
00:52:00 <hppavilion[1]> Instead of just going to the main comic page
00:53:45 <hppavilion[1]> The proper way to go to a random comic is to have an intermediate page that forms a redirect to a random comic; the "random" button simply links to its URL
00:54:08 <hppavilion[1]> And the proper way to go to the most recent comic is to link to the main comic page, which generally includes the most recent comic by default
00:55:47 <hppavilion[1]> `cat /dev/null
00:55:48 <HackEgo> No output.
00:55:51 <hppavilion[1]> Hm...
00:56:51 <hppavilion[1]> Maybe we should hack `cat so when it's called on /dev/null it prints "And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee."
00:58:01 <moon_> that'd be neat
00:58:07 <moon_> can we do it?
00:58:14 <moon_> like is there a way?
00:58:22 <ais523> but `cat should produce an empty output on /dev/null
00:59:12 <moon_> `cat output
00:59:13 <HackEgo> No output.
00:59:19 <moon_> its lieing
00:59:21 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Why?
00:59:31 <moon_> `url output
00:59:32 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Would things break if it did not?
00:59:34 <ais523> hppavilion[1]: because /dev/null reads as an empty file
00:59:35 <HackEgo> http://codu.org/projects/hackbot/fshg/index.cgi/file/tip/output
00:59:46 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Yes, but we'd hack `cat to special-case /dev/null
00:59:47 <ais523> cat's job is to, among other things, recreate the contents of files
01:00:11 <ais523> hppavilion[1]: then "cat | command" can act differently from "command"
01:00:12 <oerjan> it certainly _could_ break things. whether it actually will...
01:00:24 -!- xkapastel has joined.
01:00:25 <ais523> I can certainly imagine programs that break as a result of the identity function not being an identity
01:00:33 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Eh, this is #esoteric. Do we really have anything that isn't broken?
01:00:41 <moon_> lol
01:00:46 <oerjan> fungot: are you broken
01:00:46 <fungot> oerjan: and " current" just corresponds to the equations a k*b, b k*(a b) implies b fnord b) and 1 is slightly faster ( less slow). ( 3)
01:00:56 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Yes, but do any programs use cat /dev/null as the identity function?
01:01:18 <hppavilion[1]> Ah, the fnord connective.
01:01:32 <ais523> hppavilion[1]: well, say we want to recreate combinatory logic in bash
01:01:42 <ais523> (there doesn't have to be a reason for this, this is #esoteric)
01:01:42 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Why would we do that?
01:01:47 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, right
01:02:00 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: We'd just use the actual `cat, which would be hidden somewhere else

02:10:57 <moon_> first, interpreter for a usable language
02:11:33 <oerjan> Rube is a single char lang, although Rubicon uses graphics.
02:12:50 <moon_> hmm, ok then
02:13:06 <moon_> wait why did i say that if i have seen it? xD

02:18:36 <ais523> interesting name
02:18:53 <shachaf> "destructible" is usually implied.
02:18:53 <Elronnd> it has spaces though
02:18:54 <ais523> oerjan: rubicon's a single char lang internally
02:18:58 <ais523> you could just say it's using a particularly pretty font
02:20:44 <moon_> is there a good way to map a string to a grid?
02:20:55 <moon_> aka 1d array to 2d array?
02:21:04 <moon_> wait dont answer that.
02:21:36 <moon_> nvm do answer it :P
02:23:51 <Elronnd> what do you mean
02:24:10 <Elronnd> do you want [1,2,3,4,5,6] to look like [ [1,2], [3,4], [5,6] ]?
02:24:14 <moon_> i want to map a 1 dimensional array to a 2 dimensional array in C++
02:24:18 <ais523> moon_: replace newlines with "go to the next line"
02:24:47 <Elronnd> moon_: what do you mean "map" a 1 dimensional array?
02:25:05 <moon_> apply it to a 2 dimensional array, make it 2d
02:25:15 <Elronnd> can you give me an example?

02:25:34 * oerjan senses a certain lack of precision
02:25:37 <hppavilion[1]> Why is theft a crime, but cotheft isn't a cocrime?
02:25:58 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: cocrime is a cotheft, duh
02:25:59 <oerjan> hth
02:26:22 <moon_> http://pastebin.com/MH4QRFGK
02:26:22 <hppavilion[1]> Theft, of course, being the decrease of another person's economic value or the exchange of goods without their consent, and cotheft being increasing the value
02:26:27 <moon_> there is your example
02:26:41 <hppavilion[1]> Then again, I have nfc what cocrime is, so maybe it is
02:27:18 <oerjan> moon_: what do you do if the length of the string is prime twh
02:27:20 <Elronnd> moon_: what if you have 1345
02:27:25 <Elronnd> ermm
02:27:26 <Elronnd> 12345
02:27:36 <moon_> then it would wrap around
02:27:47 <moon_> wrapped with nulls
02:27:58 <Elronnd> so 12NULL 345
02:28:02 <Elronnd> or 123 NULL45
02:28:25 <moon_> no you would have 12 34 5NULL
02:28:33 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Wait, what?
02:28:33 <moon_> or that
02:28:36 <Elronnd> ohh
02:28:38 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: What's moon_ doing in the first place?
02:28:41 <moon_> it depends on how it is written
02:28:45 <moon_> 2d interpreter
02:28:59 <hppavilion[1]> moon_: Find a prime p s.t. p+1 is also prime
02:29:28 <Elronnd> moon_: so you want to split an array into an array of arrays of 2 chars each
02:29:33 <moon_> no
02:29:40 <moon_> an array into a square array
02:29:55 <Elronnd> 12 34 5NULL isn't square
02:30:08 <moon_> it is rectangulare
02:30:29 <Elronnd> also, although I don't have any experience with C/C++, wouldn't you get a type error if you tried to put a NULL in an array of int?
02:30:34 <moon_> but 12NULL 34 5, 12 34NULL 5 are examples
02:30:59 <moon_> this is an array of chars, the char there would be the 2d language's nop
02:31:30 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: why do you expect me to know
02:31:41 <moon_> C supports 2d arrays
02:31:58 <Elronnd> how is the rectangle size decided?
02:32:02 <Elronnd> is it arbitrary?
02:32:03 <moon_> i.e char 2darray[100][100]
02:32:14 <Elronnd> say you had a string 12 chars long
02:32:15 <moon_> thats what i need a way to DO
02:32:18 <Elronnd> would it be 6x2
02:32:19 <moon_> >_>
02:32:20 <Elronnd> or x4
02:32:22 <Elronnd> 3x4
02:32:22 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Well, you asked what happens if the length of the string is prime, so I made a guess that you understood enough to know that would be a problem
02:32:27 <hppavilion[1]> Hm...
02:32:34 <hppavilion[1]> I just realized something interesting about english
02:32:39 <moon_> what
02:32:40 <hppavilion[1]> You can have adjectives which are synonyms
02:32:44 <moon_> lol
02:32:48 <Elronnd> hppavilion[1]: I imagine that if n were prime, the 2D array would be 1xn
02:33:01 <hppavilion[1]> But which when applied to the same noun mean different things
02:33:05 <hppavilion[1]> But only relative to each other
02:33:11 <hppavilion[1]> For example, "very" and "extremely"
02:33:19 <Elronnd> huh
02:33:20 <Elronnd> wow
02:33:24 <hppavilion[1]> They're adjectives
02:33:27 <moon_> ok to avoid this problem im gonna use a fixed array
02:33:31 <hppavilion[1]> (I think)
02:33:38 <Elronnd> i'm very bored and extremely tired
02:33:41 <Elronnd> ermm
02:33:42 <hppavilion[1]> And they both describe that another adjective is exaggerated
02:33:44 <Elronnd> i'm very bored and extremely excited
02:33:46 <hppavilion[1]> Essentially, they're synonyms
02:33:53 <moon_> how would i apply a strin up to 10000 chars long to a 100x100 array? :P
02:33:54 <moon_> in C
02:34:14 <hppavilion[1]> And if you say something is "very big or something is "extremely big", they mean the same thing
02:34:22 <moon_> ^

02:34:58 <hppavilion[1]> But if you say one thing is "very big" and another thing is "extremely big", then it stands to reason that the second thing is bigger than the first
02:35:12 <hppavilion[1]> Even though "very" and "extremely" mean the same thing
02:35:13 <Elronnd> for (i=0;i==length_of_str;i++) {well
02:35:15 <Elronnd> gah
02:35:15 <Elronnd> well
02:35:16 <Elronnd> sure
02:35:26 <Elronnd> they express different magnitudes
02:35:29 <Elronnd> but they can still be considered synonyms
02:35:34 <hppavilion[1]> Elronnd: Yes, but only when used together
02:35:49 <moon_> wait i got it
02:35:59 <hppavilion[1]> Elronnd: When only one is used, they express roughly the same range of magnitudes
02:36:07 <hppavilion[1]> Is there a linguistic term for this?
02:36:19 <hppavilion[1]> (This was inspired, of all things, by the Goldbach Conjectures)
02:36:22 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: no, i just understood enough to think of an example where moon_'s statement of the problem was underspecified.
02:36:52 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: But what was the problem in the first place?
02:36:53 <Elronnd> moon_: I'm guessing that you want the sides of the rectangle to be as close as possible to each other?
02:36:57 <moon_> mhm
02:37:16 <hppavilion[1]> moon_: By the way
02:37:18 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: they're adverbs, not adjectives hth
02:37:30 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Are they?
02:37:35 <hppavilion[1]> Oh well, it still works if they are

02:39:40 <moon_> i have a programming chalange for you all, by the way
02:39:46 <Elronnd> oerjan: it's trivial to pad them, if not
02:39:49 <Elronnd> moon_: what is it?
02:39:51 <moon_> make a language that uses objects out of http://www.haneke.net/ for its operands
02:40:03 <moon_> and then makea interpreter
02:40:16 <moon_> you dont need all of the objects
02:40:49 <Elronnd> what is that site
02:41:00 <moon_> giant gif marble machine
02:42:03 <oerjan> Elronnd: i mean that you might just cast the array to a string, then copy into it
02:42:46 <oerjan> (add "pointer to" as needed)
02:43:50 <moon_> actually, memory operations would work, C/C++ store 2d arrays in a 1d format still

02:44:09 <oerjan> moon_: well i was asking whether that is guaranteed.
02:44:17 <moon_> i beleive so
02:44:40 <oerjan> if not, you can always use for loops.
02:44:45 <moon_> yup
02:45:07 <oerjan> it seems to me that deciding the number of rows is the hardest part :)

02:55:49 <Elronnd> bash+coreutils is not that bad
02:55:52 <moon_> in some cases, yes
02:56:08 <moon_> but very rarely is brainfuck a good golfer
02:56:34 <zzo38> Best language for code golfing can depend what program, is one thing. But there is also other kind of details.

08:05:59 <hppavilion[1]> e.g. http://xkcd.com/34/
08:07:06 <Vorpal> aha, a bit of hard material under the scissor mechanism ´´´```
08:07:44 <shachaf> You've fixed it?
08:07:51 <Vorpal> yes
08:08:24 <shachaf> `ǹicé´
08:08:25 <HackEgo> ​/home/hackbot/hackbot.hg/multibot_cmds/lib/limits: line 5: exec: ǹicé´: not found
08:08:26 <Vorpal> shachaf: pried the debris out with a needle, since I couldn't remove the mechanism itself due to the way it was stuck by the debris
08:08:33 <shachaf> Oops.
08:08:47 <Vorpal> hppavilion[1]: now you made me check explainxkcd for that one
08:08:51 <shachaf> How many debris were there?
08:10:06 <Vorpal> Hm what is the singular of debris?
08:10:18 <Vorpal> I guess it is uncountable
08:10:19 <shachaf> debri
08:10:35 <shachaf> debris floating in de breeze
08:10:45 <Vorpal> My spell checker doesn't like debri at least
08:10:51 <shachaf> Yes, I made it up.
08:12:37 <shachaf> oerjan: is your good twin's full name professørjan
08:12:51 <Vorpal> Hm anyone used hg-git? I don't want to learn git but I want to fork a project on github. I could fork it over to bitbucket, but then it would be harder to discover for other people looking if someone fixed this thing or not
08:13:21 <Vorpal> And the original project appears to be somewhere between maintenance mode and straight up dead
08:14:07 <shachaf> I suspect learning git is easier than figuring out hg-git
08:14:11 <\oren\> debrises
08:14:53 <Vorpal> shachaf: probably :(
08:15:03 <\oren\> git is a mystery inside an enigma, wrapped in a horrible user interface
08:15:05 <Vorpal> shachaf: is there any good GUI for git?
08:15:22 <\oren\> there isn't even a good CLI for git
08:15:23 <shachaf> I'm not sure.
08:15:26 <Vorpal> I would say that for learning a new version control system, something like TortoiseHg is great
08:15:35 <shachaf> There's some Tcl/Tk GUI but I don't know if it's good.
08:15:38 <Vorpal> so something similar for git would be useful
08:15:53 <shachaf> Hmm, GitHub wrote a GUI for Windows, if you use Windows and GitHub.
08:16:08 <shachaf> Ah, https://git-scm.com/download/gui/linux
08:16:13 <\oren\> and it is awful
08:16:57 <shachaf> I just use the command line.
08:17:08 <\oren\> basically the only way to solve most problems is to copy the files you changed, redownload the repository, and then copy them back
08:17:30 <Vorpal> shachaf: linux user here
08:17:41 <shachaf> \oren\: Are you talking about GitHub's GUI?
08:17:46 <shachaf> Or the Tk GUI?
08:17:59 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: The UNIVERSE GUI hth
08:18:50 <\oren\> shachaf: the one from github. I used it a lot for my video game course's final project
08:20:25 <shachaf> Just use the command line tool.
08:20:43 <shachaf> I don't know why people say that git is so complicated.
08:20:47 <\oren\> it makes it easy to create various states that are "broken" and can't be fixed without either complex command line screwery, or by doing what I just said
08:21:10 <shachaf> I mean, the commands are unintuitive sometimes, but as long as you know what state you're in and what state you want to be in, you can usually figure out what to do.
08:21:14 -!- Akaibu has quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity).
08:21:39 <\oren\> shachaf: the issue is that there are far more states than in other VCS's
08:21:48 <shachaf> And it's almost impossible to accidentally lose data (once you've committed it) or get into a state that you can't recover from.
08:21:51 <shachaf> There's always the reflog.
08:21:53 <oerjan> shachaf: no hth
08:23:00 <shachaf> \oren\: I made some pretty embarrassing git mistakes in the past.
08:23:38 <shachaf> But you just need to get a reasonable mental model of what the commit graph looks like.
08:24:00 <shachaf> I think it's pretty similar to hg but I haven't used hg very much.
08:27:01 <\oren\> in particular git could do without the entire concept of stashing
08:27:01 <shachaf> `learn The English, the English, the English are best; / I wouldn't give tuppence for all of the rest.
08:27:42 <shachaf> I think stashing is pretty useful.
08:27:51 <\oren\> and staging
08:27:55 <shachaf> But if you don't like it you don't have to use it.
08:28:12 <\oren\> shachaf: that's not what I've experienced
08:28:27 <shachaf> Stashing? That's an entirely local thing.
08:28:35 <shachaf> Don't run "git stash" and you don't have to deal with stashes.
08:28:57 <Vorpal> <shachaf> I mean, the commands are unintuitive sometimes, but as long as you know what state you're in and what state you want to be in, you can usually figure out what to do. <-- I'm used to using hg. Used it for ages.
08:29:12 <Vorpal> From my understanding branches in git are quite different than branches in mercurial though?
08:29:38 <shachaf> Maybe. What are branches in Mercurial?
08:30:22 <\oren\> staging could be entirely done away with. it has no purpose it seems, other than to increase the number of states my working copy can be in
08:31:01 <\oren\> this goes for svn too
08:31:42 <Vorpal> each commit belongs to a branch. You can at any point create a new branch from a given commit, by specifying a new branch name in the commit. You can only push (ignoring --force) if each named branch only has one head. Otherwise you have to merge in that branch so that you only have one head.
08:32:04 <Vorpal> If you want more than one head, use a named branch
08:32:30 <shachaf> It looks like a git branch is roughly equivalent to an hg bookmark?
08:32:50 <Vorpal> Hm, I haven't used hg bookmarks. Not directly at least
08:33:07 <Vorpal> I think mq uses them internally. It is like an easily movable tag?
08:33:17 <shachaf> I think so.
08:33:32 <shachaf> Does an hg commit (if there is such a thing) "belong" to a branch in some sense?
08:33:46 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Does a puddle "belong" to the rain?
08:33:54 <shachaf> In git you just have a graph of commits, where each commit beyond the first has one or more parents.
08:34:07 <shachaf> A branch is just a file that has a commit hash in it.
08:34:10 * hppavilion[1] is a wise Jewddhist master
08:34:20 <Vorpal> shachaf: and having multiple heads is okay and won't cause complaints when you push?
08:34:28 <shachaf> What are multiple heads?
08:34:39 <Vorpal> "Bookmarks can be used as an alternative to NamedBranches for tracking multiple lines of development. Systems like Mercurial, CVS, and Subversion store their branch information as a permanent part of each commit. This is useful for future auditing of long-lived branches, as it's always possible to identify which branch a commit was introduced on. Git, by contrast, has "branches" that are not stored in h
08:34:39 <Vorpal> istory, which is useful for working with numerous short-lived feature branches, but makes future auditing impossible. Mercurial's bookmark feature is analogous to Git's branching scheme, but can also be used in conjunction with Mercurial's traditional named branches."
08:34:45 <Vorpal> okay, makes sense
08:35:01 <Vorpal> shachaf: a head is a commit with no children. The tip of the history.
08:35:37 <shachaf> When you `git gc`, all the commits that aren't reachable via branches (or tags, which are effectively immutable branches) are deleted.
08:35:37 <Vorpal> You can end up with multiple heads, which you then either merge or rebase.
08:35:45 <Vorpal> heh
08:35:56 <Vorpal> how weird
08:36:02 <Vorpal> so it just strips part of the history
08:36:12 <Vorpal> shachaf: you can't move a tag in git?
08:36:13 <shachaf> Well, it's not the history of anything that you care about.
08:36:24 <shachaf> It's a faux pas.
08:36:39 <Vorpal> You can in hg, since the tags are just a bunch of revision IDs and names in a file .hgtags in the root of the repo
08:36:49 <Vorpal> Just append a new line overriding the old tag
08:36:56 -!- MDude has changed nick to MDream.
08:37:11 <shachaf> I understand what a head is, but what do you mean by multiple heads?
08:38:14 <Vorpal> shachaf: well if you have more than one commit that has no children, in the same named branch, you don't have a clear "most recent" tip in that branch. Okay?
08:38:24 <shachaf> Oh, I see.
08:38:29 <shachaf> In git a branch is just a head, I guess.
08:38:50 <Vorpal> I guess in git the gc command would get rid of it?
08:38:54 <shachaf> (Well, it might have children, but they're not visible from the branch.)
08:38:58 <Vorpal> which sounds dangerous
08:39:11 -!- MoALTz has joined.
08:39:31 <shachaf> A GC should never delete anything that you care about, because you can just keep a GC root referring to it.
08:39:52 <Vorpal> right. but that sounds complicated
08:40:07 <shachaf> I don't know how you'd end up in that situation, really.
08:40:07 <Vorpal> When would you end up with stuff you don't care about anyway
08:40:21 <shachaf> Well, maybe you rewrote history to squash some commits together.
08:40:36 <shachaf> Or maybe you deleted a branch. The contents of the branch are still available until you GC.
08:40:43 <Vorpal> shachaf: I assume you can't rewrite history you already pushed?
08:40:55 <Vorpal> Or delete a branch that is pushed
08:41:26 <shachaf> Well, you can do whatever you want, but you generally shouldn't push changes to a remote branch that aren't descendants of it.
08:41:42 <shachaf> You can delete a branch that you pushed. You can always recreate it by getting the remote branch.
08:41:45 -!- MDream has changed nick to MDude.
08:41:49 <Vorpal> In hg each commit has a phase: secret, draft, public. As soon as you push (or someone pulls from you) the commit is set to public. You can force change it back to draft, but that is a faux pas that could lead to all sorts of headaches down the line.
08:42:11 <Vorpal> You can only perform history editing on draft commits. Oh and secret commits are excluded from being pushed or pulled
08:42:20 <Vorpal> otherwise secret and draft are the same
08:42:24 <Vorpal> commits default to draft
08:42:48 <shachaf> A git branch is literally implemented as a file: A branch foo is a file .git/refs/heads/foo containing a sha1 hash.
08:42:56 <Vorpal> Hm
08:43:10 <shachaf> I guess there's no equivalent state to keep track of for whether a branch has been pushed or not.
08:43:12 <Vorpal> Can't say I know how hg implements all that stuff. Don't need to deal with it normally
08:43:27 <Vorpal> Hm
08:43:36 <shachaf> Well, if you prefer, "branches" are just a key-value map : String -> SHA1
08:44:18 <shachaf> If you try to push something to a remote branch that isn't a descendant, you'll get an error if you don't force-push.
08:44:53 <Vorpal> Fair enough
08:45:22 <Vorpal> still it seems that git and hg have quite different models. Resulting in very different idiomatic ways to use them
08:45:37 <shachaf> That sounds a bit more plausible now.
08:45:49 <Vorpal> yeah
08:47:43 <Vorpal> shachaf: is there anything like MQ in git? It is basically a version controlled way to have local commits that you work on, and update. Possibly merging several of them, reordering and so on
08:47:59 <Vorpal> But the great thing is that you version control the "patch queue" as it is called
08:48:14 <Vorpal> Meaning you can go back to an earlier state of your local unpushed commits
08:48:14 <shachaf> "MQ is rarely needed for new Mercurial users. If you're used to it and you like it, by all means, keep using it. But if you are learning Mercurial, instead use modern tools, such as hg rebase, hg histedit, hg graft, hg strip, hg strip --keep, and hg commit --amend. Check the documentation for each of these commands."
08:48:25 <shachaf> Those "modern tools" sound very similar to git tools.
08:48:33 <shachaf> For example git rebase and git commit --amend
08:48:46 <Vorpal> shachaf: yeah I know, but I like that MQ allows me to version control my history editing. I don't think the more modern tools do
08:49:17 <shachaf> Well, you can always keep a branch referring to your pre-history-rewriting commit.
08:49:24 <shachaf> But I guess that's more manual than you like.
08:50:07 <Vorpal> well mq is semi-manual. You have to remember to commit the current state of the queue. But other than that, it takes care of itself until you need to revert it, at which point it is a bit of work (but hopefully that is rare)
08:50:07 <shachaf> So there's the git reflog, which just keeps track of the states that a branch has been in.
08:50:14 <Vorpal> ah neat
08:50:41 <shachaf> That's not an explicit commit, but you can ask "what commit was this branch pointing to X operations ago or at time Y".
08:50:46 <Vorpal> shachaf: but I guess gc messes that up?
08:51:01 <shachaf> Those aren't GC roots so they might get collected, yes.
08:51:15 <shachaf> You can turn off GC if you like.
08:51:21 <shachaf> Normally it only deletes things over 30 days old, I think.
08:51:43 <Vorpal> Hm, when you strip something in mercurial, it saves a bundle with all the commits you stripped in .hg/strip-backup or something like that
08:51:56 <Vorpal> You could manually clean it, but it would never be auto-collected
08:52:30 <oerjan> `? hagb4rd
08:52:33 <HackEgo> hagb4rd is one spacey fellow. Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace.
08:52:36 <Vorpal> But that is a non-issue, since stripping commits is a rare operation
08:53:00 <shachaf> Oh, you can disable GC for a particular branch's reflog.
08:53:30 <shachaf> I don't think this is intended for quite the same thing that you're thinking of using it for, but it could work, I guess.
08:53:31 <Vorpal> well having it automatically "commit" on each operation is neat, I'll agree

08:54:26 <Vorpal> shachaf: basically I use mq at work when working on a large feature, it allows me to work all over the place and split the stuff into logical commits for each sub-feature or part touched.
08:54:33 <shachaf> `` ln -sf hagb4rd wisdom/h4gb4rd
08:54:42 <oerjan> shachaf: :(
08:54:52 <oerjan> oh
08:55:12 <HackEgo> No output.

08:55:21 <HackEgo> hagb4rd is one spacey fellow. Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace.
08:55:24 <shachaf> You can revert if you like.
08:55:32 <shachaf> I didn't like the other entry very much.
08:55:40 <oerjan> no, i thought you'd done it the wrong way.
08:56:13 <oerjan> anyway.
08:56:25 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite).
08:56:53 <Vorpal> shachaf: what about hg record? Allows you to select which part of a file to include in a commit. Basically asks for each "section" of the diff
08:57:10 <Vorpal> useful if you realise you want to do something in two commits
08:57:10 <shachaf> git add -p, I think.
08:57:25 <shachaf> Or git commit -p
08:57:30 <shachaf> Or soemthing.
08:58:31 <Vorpal> shachaf: how do I list outgoing/incoming changes before I push/pull so that I can check that I don't have stuff I'm pushing/pulling that I didn't intend to
08:59:21 <Vorpal> hg out basically lists what would be pushed, if you were to push. Same for hg in and pulling
08:59:26 <shachaf> git pull does two things: git fetch, which fetches a remote repository's branches, and then git merge of the remote branch into the local branch.
08:59:50 <shachaf> You can do it manually. git fetch, and then (say you're on the branch master) you have the remote branch at origin/master and the local branch at master.
08:59:55 <shachaf> Then you can do whatever you want.
09:00:12 <Vorpal> shachaf: so no way to see what git fetch would fetch without actually adding it to your local repo?
09:00:20 <Vorpal> This is especially useful when pushing
09:00:23 <shachaf> Well, it doesn't modify your local branches.
09:00:30 <Vorpal> okay sure
09:00:31 <shachaf> It just modifies your snapshot of the remote repository.
09:00:37 <Vorpal> But the pushing case is more interesting anyway
09:00:55 <Vorpal> I want to make sure I don't push, a commit "LOCAL: ADD DEBUG PRINTS" or something by mistake
09:01:04 <shachaf> Well, you can git fetch and then do whatever you want.
09:01:08 <Vorpal> Hm
09:01:17 <shachaf> Examine your local master and origin/master, see the differences, etc.
09:01:22 <shachaf> And then push when you're happy.
09:01:33 <Vorpal> Oh so fetching results in you getting an extra branch that represents the remote repo?
09:01:37 <Vorpal> I guess that would work
09:01:52 <shachaf> Right. Well, you get a bunch of branches corresponding to the remote branches.
09:02:19 <Vorpal> also that is a weird way to do it. So branches are local to the repository?
09:02:23 <Vorpal> How strange
09:02:26 <shachaf> And the local branch you're pushing is presumably a descendant of a remote branch.
09:02:49 <shachaf> Yes, a branch is just a name for a commit.
09:03:10 <shachaf> Often you have a local branch that tracks a remote branch, but you can have private branches etc., no problem.
09:03:39 <Vorpal> hm and I guess you can push a branch to the remote side, otherwise you couldn't create new branches on, say, github
09:03:48 <shachaf> Right.
09:05:47 <shachaf> It's a very simple model. If anything it's maybe too simple, so maybe sometimes you need to do strange things to get to the state that you want.
09:07:25 <Vorpal> right
09:07:48 <Vorpal> To me it seems hg's branch model is more sensible. And git's branch model, like hg bookmarks seems mostly pointless
09:08:06 <shachaf> I guess I should use hg sometime to figure out whether that's true.

09:10:01 <Vorpal> shachaf: also mercurial has a really kick ass GUI. TortoiseHg is *really* good
09:10:21 <Vorpal> and of course opinions will differ
09:11:01 <shachaf> Of course.
09:12:19 <Vorpal> "Repository structure: Mercurial doesn’t allow octopus merges (with more than two parents), nor tagging non-commit objects.
09:12:19 <Vorpal> "
09:12:29 <Vorpal> Whaaat? How do you merge with more than 2 parents?
09:12:37 <Vorpal> That seems... terribly complicated?
09:12:45 <shachaf> I don't know that I've ever done it.
09:12:50 <Vorpal> Most merge tools are 3-way
09:13:26 <Vorpal> shachaf: I assume git supports external GUI merge tools?
09:13:38 <shachaf> Probably?
09:13:39 <Vorpal> I personally use BeyondCompare (not open, nor free, but really really good)
09:13:47 <shachaf> http://www.gitguys.com/topics/merging-with-a-gui/
09:14:46 <shachaf> Anyway a merge with more than two parents seems like it might be complicated to actually do, but what it is doesn't seem very complicated.
09:15:39 <Vorpal> "Mercurial uses rename tracking, while Git uses rename detection to deal with file renames
09:15:39 <Vorpal> "
09:15:46 <Vorpal> shachaf: agreed
09:15:56 <Vorpal> anyway what does it mean with rename detection?
09:16:07 <shachaf> I don't think there's an explicit notion of a file being renamed.
09:16:11 <Vorpal> It doesn't track in the commit that a rename was from a specific file to another?
09:16:17 <shachaf> It's just a deletion and a creation.
09:16:35 <shachaf> A git commit is roughly just a snapshot of a directory tree.
09:16:38 <Vorpal> That seems like it is a loss of useful information when doing merges with conflicts?
09:16:43 <shachaf> I guess that's different from hg.
09:16:48 <shachaf> Maybe it is, I don't know.
09:17:03 <Vorpal> if someone moved the file I did changes in, how does it figure out to apply my changes to that other file instead
09:17:13 <shachaf> With rename detection, I guess?
09:17:33 <Vorpal> Hm
09:17:45 <Vorpal> seems more brittle if a lot of things changed in the file as well
09:17:51 <shachaf> It probably is.
09:17:55 <Vorpal> or many files were renamed in the same commit
09:18:00 <shachaf> I've had issues with that occasionally.
09:18:42 <shachaf> But a git commit isn't a diff from the previous commit. It's just a snapshot of a tree.
09:18:53 <shachaf> There are one or more parent pointers, which you can use to compute a diff.
09:19:07 <Vorpal> Ah
09:19:15 <Vorpal> I guess a hg commit *is* a diff
09:19:27 <Vorpal> internally I don't know if it is or not though
09:19:44 <shachaf> Well, it keeps track of rename information one way or another.
09:21:46 <shachaf> Anyway, now that you learned all these details, you'll have to try git out.
09:25:15 <shachaf> I don't understand why you would want to have more than one head in a branch.
09:25:44 <shachaf> I guess you just have different notion of what a branch is in hg.
09:26:09 <shachaf> All the work that goes into a feature, or something like that. You can put all your commits and things in it, and eventually clean it up when you want to merge/push.
09:28:51 <Vorpal> <shachaf> I don't understand why you would want to have more than one head in a branch. <-- you don't. It is a temporary state after you pulled remote changes but before you rebased or merged
09:29:12 <shachaf> OK.
09:29:27 <shachaf> So it sounds like an equivalent of git's origin/foo in that case.
09:29:34 <shachaf> Where origin is the repository you fetched from.
09:30:47 <Vorpal> shachaf: a branch in hg might be the work a different team is working on. It is for big changes. And it is for a release with only bug fixes (as opposed to "default" in hg / "master" in git)
09:31:14 <Vorpal> it is usually not for something short lived

09:34:12 <shachaf> OK.
09:34:22 <shachaf> Often I have a bunch of branches in my repository for various work I've done.
09:34:34 <shachaf> As I finish it I merge/rebase them onto master and push.
09:34:42 <shachaf> Is there an equivalent to that sort of thing?
09:34:56 <Vorpal> I usually don't work that way. I normally work on one or two things at a time. I guess for you there could be bookmarks then?
09:35:14 <Vorpal> Also you can have multiple MQ queues, but again I rarely use that
09:35:31 <Vorpal> I don't think I ever used more than one MQ queue
09:35:46 <shachaf> OK.
09:35:54 <shachaf> Also at work I use Phabricator which has a completely different workflow.
09:36:07 <shachaf> It was developed at Facebook, which uses hg, so presumably there's a way to make it work there.

09:37:55 <Vorpal> phabricator that is
09:37:58 <shachaf> How do you do code review?
09:37:59 <Destructible> either way I did not know about /msg

09:38:54 <Destructible> *some gimmick about knowing things and a positive thing being related*
09:39:21 <Destructible> so, anyway I reckon I'll add a page for my language idea, however
09:39:35 <Destructible> I'm going to post it on the ideas page, but
09:39:54 <Destructible> I'm not sure whether it would count as a derivative of brainfuck
09:41:13 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: Good rule of thumb: If it could conceivably be a brainfuck derivative, don't even talk about it
09:41:29 <Destructible> but...
09:41:34 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: Pretend that you never thought of it and step twice in the river of lice to atone for your sins
09:41:39 <Destructible> no
09:41:54 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: I discussed this the other day
09:41:59 <hppavilion[1]> >>> sin(brainfuck_derivatives)
09:42:01 <hppavilion[1]> True
09:42:18 <Destructible> ok, I guess I'll just not post it as a derivative
09:42:29 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: That's even worse
09:42:33 <Destructible> it features a tape of memory
09:42:36 <Destructible> and a pointer
09:42:39 <Vorpal> <shachaf> How do you do code review? <-- at work? Part of the web software we use on our servers with hg and bug management and all that.
09:42:41 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: Non-attribution is a heinous crime in this case
09:42:46 <Destructible> that is how it is similar
09:42:55 <Destructible> pretty much it
09:42:56 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: And how is it different?
09:43:01 <shachaf> Which software?
09:43:02 <Vorpal> shachaf: not phabricator though, different one
09:43:04 <Destructible> it has a stack
09:43:08 <Destructible> for one thing
09:43:09 <hppavilion[1]> Destructible: And?
09:43:20 <Destructible> bits instead of bytes
09:43:35 <Destructible> manipulating data happens with moving, instead of a seperate command
09:43:45 <Vorpal> shachaf: Called FogBugz. I have never used any other proprietary one. It is okay I guess.
09:43:54 <shachaf> Oh, that one.
09:44:00 <Vorpal> You know of it? Okay
09:44:10 <shachaf> Is this Kiln?
09:44:14 <Vorpal> Yes
09:44:19 <Vorpal> I think the review part is some add on though, not the standard kiln one
09:45:52 <Destructible> the main feature of the program is the fact that the only way to change any values not in a straight line (because if you move back to a previous point, all the bits return to previous value) is )
09:46:09 <Destructible> (sorry about unclosed paren)
09:46:33 <shachaf> Code review is TG
09:46:41 <Destructible> to use the teleport function, which pops the top value of the stack and transports the pointer to that spot
09:46:44 <Vorpal> shachaf: ?
09:46:47 <shachaf> too good
09:46:50 <Vorpal> ah
09:46:55 <shachaf> I don't like GitHub's implementation of it via pull requests very much.
09:47:09 <Vorpal> shachaf: oh? I should probably learn how those works btw
09:47:20 <shachaf> Which is a shame because so many projects use GitHub now.
09:47:47 <shachaf> I've historically refused to use pull requests.
09:47:50 <Vorpal> shachaf: anyway, how did you come into contact with Kiln?
09:47:51 <shachaf> I just send people patches.
09:48:05 <shachaf> I never used it.
09:48:12 <shachaf> I think I read about it at hginit.com.
09:48:15 <Vorpal> Ah
09:48:38 <shachaf> Which is half Kiln advertisement half hg tutorial.
09:48:55 <Vorpal> the problem with a patch it might not be obvious where in the history it applies. And even if you figure it out you have to rebase/merge. Mostly an issue in a highly active project
09:51:03 <shachaf> Yes.
09:54:31 <hppavilion[1]> zeugmas must be a massive pain in the ass for translators
09:55:46 <Vorpal> hppavilion[1]: why?
09:56:01 <hppavilion[1]> Vorpal: Because how do you translate such a thing?
09:56:05 <Destructible> I'll be back
09:56:09 -!- Destructible has quit (Quit: Page closed).
09:56:13 <hppavilion[1]> It loses impactfulness when you use different words
09:56:27 <hppavilion[1]> It's probably even worse for autotranslaton
09:56:31 <hppavilion[1]> *autotranslation
09:56:35 <hppavilion[1]> In fact, I'll test it now
09:57:46 <hppavilion[1]> ...Huh
09:57:49 <hppavilion[1]> It still makes some sense
09:58:40 <hppavilion[1]> It didn't change the key word, I guess
09:59:24 <Vorpal> hppavilion[1]: why does it do that? You assumed I know what that language is?
09:59:48 <Vorpal> I assume "zeugmas" is a language? Or is it a specific word?
09:59:49 <hppavilion[1]> Vorpal: Wat?
10:00:00 <hppavilion[1]> Vorpal: No, "zeugmas" is a linguistic technique
10:00:08 <Vorpal> hppavilion[1]: okay, what does it mean then?
10:00:16 <hppavilion[1]> It's where a word is used only once, but has different meanings when applied to different parts of the sentence
10:00:18 <hppavilion[1]> For example
10:00:27 <hppavilion[1]> "You are free to execute your laws, and your citizens, as you see fit"
10:01:00 <hppavilion[1]> In this case, "execute your laws" means to enact the laws and "execute your citizens" means to state-sanctionedly kill them
10:01:00 <Vorpal> ah
10:01:06 <shachaf> I think people call that zeugma but maybe it would more accurately be called syllepsis.
10:01:46 <shachaf> There's a famous song by Flanders and Swann that uses these things a lot.
10:02:19 <shachaf> It's clever but the subject matter is distasteful.
10:04:11 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Do you know the title?
10:04:21 <shachaf> Yes.
10:04:33 <hppavilion[1]> Ah, Have Some Madeira M'Dear
10:04:40 <hppavilion[1]> That was easy
10:05:15 <hppavilion[1]> If only there was some way for me to express the ease with which I found that... Some sort of... Button...

10:05:35 <HackEgo> No output.
10:05:41 <shachaf> Too rude.
10:05:52 <shachaf> If it was in nice mode it might be excusable.
10:06:34 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: It could pretty easily be made nice
10:08:06 <shachaf> I wonder why the Wikipedia page for that song says that it's about "seduction" rather than "rape".
10:08:57 <shachaf> https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Have_Some_Madeira_M%27Dear&diff=514192267&oldid=491132795
10:09:00 <shachaf> good edit
10:10:25 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Probably because it was intended to be about seduction at the time (1967, for cthulhhu's sake), and that was how it would have been interpreted contemporarily; culture has changed by now, I would say for the better if I wasn't too biased to judge, but if 1967 was different, it's more accurate to refer to it in the way 1967-ians would have seen it than how we now see it
10:10:59 <shachaf> Oh, come on.
10:11:04 <shachaf> Have you seen the lyrics?
10:11:30 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: No, actually
10:11:52 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: I got about 20 seconds into the YouTube video before I decided it probably wasn't my taste
10:12:44 <shachaf> zeugmatic or not?
10:12:58 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Correct?
10:13:19 <shachaf> Well, I'd suggest that you read the lyrics before jumping to defend that edit.
10:13:52 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: That'd probably be best
10:14:04 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: I was just pointing out cultural context

10:16:25 <hppavilion[1]> From tvtropes: "Plots, Characters, and Conflict are tropes, and literally no proper story can be told without them (whatever form they take)."
10:16:37 <hppavilion[1]> Challenge: Defeat TVTropes
10:17:35 <shachaf> Well, "plot" is just "what happens", so a story without a plot would be one where nothing happened.
10:18:08 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Yes
10:18:12 <shachaf> Characters are probably not necessary, if that means sentient characters, at least.
10:18:16 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: I think characters is the only one you can really get away with
10:18:16 <Vorpal> you can tell a story without conflict though I think. Though making it engaging might be harder
10:18:18 <shachaf> Conflict is probably not necessary.
10:19:00 <shachaf> Keith Johnstone talks about storytelling in his excellent book _Impro: Improvisation and the Theatre_ (and also his other book _Impro for Storytellers_).
10:19:03 <Vorpal> But consider things like some gag-a-day comic strips. They might not have conflict all the time.
10:19:11 <Vorpal> Sometimes they definitely though
10:19:19 <Vorpal> do though*
10:19:37 <Vorpal> though I guess you could argue that is not a story as such

15:57:28 <b_jonas> um
15:57:29 <b_jonas> fizzie: ^
15:57:30 <b_jonas> I dunno
15:57:33 <fizzie> Possibly. I had similar trouble last time as well, again fixed by swapping, and then *un*fixed by swapping back. Then I just kept fiddling at it (including flashing a newer Android build on the phone) and eventually it started working.
15:57:38 <fizzie> They're both retail Nexus devices.
15:57:42 <b_jonas> it might be just random stupidity of the phons
15:57:46 <b_jonas> fizzie: how old are they?
15:57:49 <FreeFull> Super weird
15:58:08 <fizzie> They're a 6 and a 5X.
15:58:28 <b_jonas> fizzie: ok, now explain what that means to someone who doesn't follow android phone stuff. how old are they?
15:59:00 <fizzie> I don't really remember. 5X came out in 2015.
15:59:05 <fizzie> The 6 maybe in 2014.
15:59:20 <b_jonas> ah, they're not even in order
15:59:21 <b_jonas> ok
15:59:29 <fizzie> It's a size-related name.
16:00:12 <b_jonas> ah, like with cards
16:00:13 <b_jonas> cars
16:00:16 <b_jonas> not cards, cars
16:00:38 <b_jonas> although about cards, have they invented a sixth SIM card size yet?
16:00:44 <fizzie> The 5" Nexus 5 is older, the 6" Nexus 6 was I think 2014, and last year they released the pair of Nexus 5X (5.2") and Nexus 6P (...5.9"?) about the same size.
16:01:16 <int-e> http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-6 http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-5x ... useful url scheme
16:01:42 <fizzie> I didn't even know they had a fifth.

16:02:41 <fizzie> Does that eSIM thing even count?
16:02:49 <b_jonas> fizzie: why wouldn't it count?
16:02:54 <b_jonas> I think it counts
16:03:00 <fizzie> It's not a "card".
16:03:33 <b_jonas> does that matter?
16:03:54 <fizzie> Well, you did say "SIM card size".
16:04:52 <b_jonas> it still has the same functionality as a SIM card
16:04:54 <int-e> hmm, at least it's a standardized format
16:04:56 <b_jonas> I don't care what shape it has
16:05:23 <int-e> the non-full-size SIMs aren't much of cards either
16:05:38 <fizzie> No, but at least they're the sort of thing you stick in a device.
16:05:44 <fizzie> Not something soldered in.
16:06:07 <b_jonas> fizzie: I think they're only optionally soldered in

16:06:42 <b_jonas> yes, what int-e says
16:06:53 <int-e> but it's hard to tell
16:07:10 <b_jonas> but even if it has to be soldered in, it's functionally the same
16:07:12 <fizzie> "Photograph showing an Embedded SIM also known as a chip SIM as used in Machine to Machine (M2M) Applications on business card for scale. Also shows an adapter board to allow the embedded SIM card to be evaluated in a 2FF SIM socket."
16:07:13 <b_jonas> just a bit harder to replace
16:08:28 <fizzie> Have it your way; I'll still consider there's 4 "SIM card sizes" the way I interpret it.

16:11:48 <int-e> ah, CaC still provides me with the usual level of fun... "[142454.411715] EXT4-fs (dm-0): Remounting filesystem read-only"
16:12:50 <int-e> http://sprunge.us/PITQ
16:12:56 -!- augur has joined.
16:25:24 <tswett> So I think this is a Church numeral for Graham's number:
16:25:25 <tswett> 64 (\n -> pred n (\f b -> b f 3) (\b -> b 3)) 3
16:26:50 <tswett> Lemme see.
16:26:57 <tswett> (\b -> b 3) is the "3^" function.
16:28:11 <tswett> That (\n ->) function there starts with the "3^" function and, (n-1) times, it replaces f with \b -> b f 3.
16:28:36 <b_jonas> fungot, That (\n ->) function there starts with the "3^" function and, (n-1) times, it
16:28:36 <fungot> b_jonas: usually i just mumble without directing the stuff to so many pieces left over :)
16:29:21 <tswett> So, the first replacement turns it into \b -> b (3^) 3, which starts with 3 and then applies (3^) to it b times...
16:29:23 <Vorpal> fizzie: weird, with the phone
16:29:28 <tswett> So that's wrong, let me change it.
16:29:41 <tswett> 64 (\n -> pred n (\f b -> pred b f 3) (\b -> b 3)) 3
16:30:04 <b_jonas> fungot, do you know what happened to fizzie's fone?
16:30:05 <fungot> b_jonas: what are you using? it works on my data. i have really done is read part of church papers when he designed the entirety of the stack as if it were
16:30:36 <tswett> Okay, so the first replacement turns it into \b -> pred b (3^) 3, which starts with 3 and then applies (3^) to it (b-1) times. So that gives you (3^^).
16:32:09 <b_jonas> @pl \b -> pred b (3^) 3 -- which starts with 3 and then applies (3^) to it (b-1) times. So that gives you (3^^).
16:32:09 <lambdabot> flip (flip pred (3 ^)) 3
16:34:25 <tswett> The second replacement turns it into \b -> pred b (3^^) 3, which starts with 3 and applies (3^^) to it (b-1) times, so you have (3^^^).
16:34:51 <b_jonas> @pl \b -> pred b (3^^) 3 -- , which starts with 3 and applies (3^^) to it (b-1) times, so you have (3^^^).
16:34:51 <lambdabot> flip (flip pred (3 ^^)) 3

16:35:11 <lambdabot> 64 (flip (flip pred (flip flip 3 . flip pred)) ($ 3)) 3

18:16:19 <b_jonas> On a fat32 filesystem, the file mtimes are recorded as local time. Whe mounting such a fs on linux, as type=vfat, how do I tell linux what timezone to use? That's probably impossible, because the kernel doesn't know about it, right?
18:16:34 <b_jonas> Is there some other solution, like a user-space file system that knows about this?

18:33:11 <int-e> run windows on GMT? (not really kidding, it's what I do to avoid a mess on DST switches)
18:34:22 <b_jonas> int-e: windows isn't involved
18:34:30 <b_jonas> int-e: the fat is written by a non-windows mobile phone
18:34:37 <b_jonas> int-e: windows uses ntfs these days
18:35:32 <b_jonas> int-e: it's phones and cameras and cash registers and those kinds of stuff that use FAT, and they still will be using them in 2097 when the fat date rolls around and people will find themselves with broken machines, way worse than in 2000 or in 2037
18:36:44 <b_jonas> int-e: because software running on the cpu is easy to update, so people will get 64 bit dates in memory easily, but file system formats are hard to update, because you have to get many machines coordinated, and FAT in particular is very impossible to update, BECAUSE WINDOWS 95 ORS FILLED ALL THE 32 BYTES OF THE DIRECTORY ENTRY SO THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO SPACE LEFT FOR A COMPATIBLE EXTENSION
18:36:47 <int-e> looking at /usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/vfat.txt , there's a timezone=UTC to tell the kernel to assume UTC; there's a time_offset=minutes to get a custom offset.

19:10:32 <b_jonas> \oren\: I see you added three extra runes to your font from the Verne cryptogram: the G rune, the D rune, a variant C/K rune.
19:10:51 <b_jonas> \oren\: but I have some questions. (1) in the demo page, what does red and yellow characters mean? I know the green means recently added
19:11:13 <b_jonas> \oren\: and the other, do you have a brief description somewhere on what you're using each private use character for in your font?
19:11:41 <\oren\> red is characters that aren't real ones. yellow is new red ones.
19:12:03 <\oren\> That is a good idea, I'll add a description
19:12:11 <b_jonas> um, what are they if not real ones?
19:12:59 <b_jonas> and aren't the green ones the new ones?
19:17:09 <\oren\> the green and yellow are both new

23:51:42 <myname> i recommended a grep
23:52:13 <b_jonas> myname: NO! netstat actually has options to filter by protocol
23:52:28 <myname> i don't care

23:53:01 <b_jonas> myname: sure
