00:10:10 <zzo38> Now I wrote a simple program to lease stdin; it then terminates as soon as anyone else opens the same file. (If you just type "lease" by itself, you will get an error message, because you cannot lease a terminal.)
00:16:46 <zzo38> To do select with absolute timer one idea I thought might be to create a pipe and then another thread or program can wait for the specified time and emit characters on the pipe once the timer expires.
00:17:07 <pikhq> Mmm, yes, that would work.
00:17:34 <pikhq> And then the select user can just know that one of the fds means "timer expired".
00:18:04 <pikhq> I think that one's a lot cleaner than what I suggested.
00:18:04 <pikhq> And it'll work with poll as well.

00:56:01 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, fuck this
00:56:16 <hppavilion[1]> According to affirmativeconsent.com under "What is affirmative consent?"
00:56:18 <hppavilion[1]> "Consent is to be determined from the perspective of the complainant."
00:57:09 <\oren\> I recommend reading into the case law instead
00:57:22 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: It appears to actually be from case laww
00:57:43 <hppavilion[1]> So if someone has sex with someone else, and that person had every reason to believe that the partner was cool with- or even into- it, if the partner says that they didn't feel like they consented, then it's rape.
00:58:17 <\oren\> like I said, read the actual judgements
00:58:23 <hppavilion[1]> I will
00:58:41 <hppavilion[1]> But that seems like an obvious vector to get rid of someone you don't like- have sex with them, claim you didn't consent, get them sent to prison

00:59:34 <hppavilion[1]> This case is using the "39%" metric, which has been repeatedly debunked
01:00:07 <hppavilion[1]> Even the people who conducted the original survey that came up with the 1-in-3 number have said their survey shouldn't be used to justify laws or policies or anything, IIRC
01:00:45 <hppavilion[1]> The DoJ came up with a number closer to 1-in-50; still too large, but saying 1-in-3 is still a lie
01:01:16 <hppavilion[1]> (Apparently, it used to be 1-in-5, then it was 1-in-4, now it's 1-in-3. Soon enough, 2 out of every 1 women will get sexually assaulted in her lifetime)

01:45:00 <hppavilion[2]> zzo38: It's a Scrabble game where JS reserved words count for triple points
01:46:39 <zzo38> Does it multiply after all other modifier on the board then?
01:47:02 <hppavilion[2]> zzo38: That doesn't matter. Multiplication is commutative over the naturals.
01:47:51 <zzo38> I know that, but the other possibility is if it suppresses the other modifiers or something like that.
01:48:05 <hppavilion[2]> Oh, but double/triple letter scores might affect it...
01:48:13 <hppavilion[2]> Wait, maybe not

05:26:01 <hppavilion[2]> I should get around to playing geoguessr, I guess
05:31:29 <pikhq> hppavilion[2]: Well, there are certainly at least some dinosaurs that would make the extinct list.
05:31:35 <hppavilion[2]> "Hundreds of replicas of the Statue of Liberty have been created worldwide. At least one is the same size as the original; others are all smaller."
05:31:39 <hppavilion[2]> I sense a challenge
05:31:45 <hppavilion[2]> (wikipedia)
05:31:57 <hppavilion[2]> (Wikipedia et. al.)
05:32:18 <pikhq> Tip, all birds are dinosaurs by any reasonable definition of the term. :)
05:32:48 <hppavilion[2]> pikhq: True, true
05:33:10 <hppavilion[2]> pikhq: Unless the definition includes "lived before modern homonids"
05:33:20 <hppavilion[2]> *lived and died
05:33:41 <pikhq> Yeah, um, that's pretty unreasonable.
05:33:56 <pikhq> (and includes many birds. :P)
05:35:05 <hppavilion[2]> pikhq: Yeah, but at least it doesn't include e.g. ravens
05:35:19 <pikhq> I fail to see why that's a desirable property.
05:35:39 <hppavilion[2]> pikhq: Because ravens are smarter than dinosaurs, obv.
05:35:48 <hppavilion[2]> But the Wikipedia et al. challenge, of course, is to make a /larger/ replica of the SoL

06:41:48 <pikhq> grep -boF ;# and be advised that this will work with GNU grep but may not with other greps (that choke on binary files)
06:42:05 <hppavilion[1]> Really, UC? Emoji don't need to include every image ever
06:42:47 <hppavilion[1]> You should have separate sets of emoji to represent men and women from those representing careers- you don't need to combine them to have women in each career AND men in each career
06:42:49 <hppavilion[1]> That would be stupid
06:43:21 <hppavilion[1]> They also say "People search for women and men emoji with nearly the same frequency" when there is a blatantly higher number of people searching for men
06:43:25 <hppavilion[1]> Like, a LOT more
06:44:07 <hppavilion[1]> I would estimate 135% as many looking for "men emoji" as for "women emoji"
06:44:59 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, at least they're making them combining sequences rather than whole new codepoints
06:45:10 <hppavilion[1]> Still seems unnecessary, but it's better as this
06:47:50 <hppavilion[1]> But still, the idea of "focus on women in various jobs" is pretty stupid; unless you can show a blatant limitation to women getting into a job- not just there being more men in the job in general, but a discrepancy between percentage women and men hired vs. applied- I will assume that the lower percentage of women in the job is because /less women want the job/, as that's as close to the null hypothesis as I can get
06:49:25 <hppavilion[1]> I also find it funny that the document mentions adding the equivalents for men, but almost entirely emphasize it for women
06:50:24 <hppavilion[1]> Which makes no sense to me; if there aren't ones for men AND women already, what reason is there to have them? They say it's to "empower young women", but I don't think people will feel particularly empowered by there being emoji showing women in assorted professions
06:51:05 <hppavilion[1]> It's like saying e.g. all newspaper comics should be shown with variants with men AND women for each character
06:53:01 <hppavilion[1]> "We recognize the importance of having an inclusive representation of all people in emoji" so why don't you just make everything generic and neutral? Having specific emoji for various attributes of people is stupid; it's like if they decided there needs to be variants of emoji for all the different eye colors
06:54:22 <hppavilion[1]> Having dinosaurs seems like more of a pressing issue to me
06:54:24 <hppavilion[1]> </rant>

07:08:56 <hppavilion[1]> Ah, true
07:09:12 <hppavilion[1]> For a second there, I thought "Wouldn't it be nice if we had something like Wikipedia, but..." before I realized it's been done, but it became "conservapedia"
07:09:16 <pikhq> Remember, we have a political party that believes that climate change is neither human-caused nor actually happening.
07:09:17 <\oren\> hppavilion[1]: go to the article "albanians" for example
07:09:47 <\oren\> they removed the gallery of images at the top which tells people what albanians generally look like
07:09:54 <zzo38> I think that even crazy point of view must be included, although they could be separated from the main article; this results in better text than making a mess of everything in one sentence that doesn't make sense.
07:10:16 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: But what about POVs shared by only 4 or 5 individuals?
07:10:17 <pikhq> The scientific community is happy to state that's pretty crazy at this point, but it's certainly not thought of like that by everybody.
07:10:22 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, wait, this is the internet
07:10:33 <\oren\> this has been done to all articles on ethnic groups

07:11:29 <\oren\> Hopefully someone can put at least some txt explaining that, for example, very pale skin, red hair and freckles are common among the Irish
07:11:36 <zzo38> If only five people and isn't significant then maybe it should be placed on the talk page by those people.

07:13:15 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: True
07:14:46 <zzo38> I have look at some custom Magic: the Gathering cards that people made up that say "This card cannot die even if a card says it can". This does not prevent it from being exiled, phased out, returned to owner's hand, shuffled into owner's library, anted, countered, discarded, turned face-down, etc....
07:14:48 <hppavilion[1]> Wow, the wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_Americans doesn't have any images there specifically to get across how blacks look, and there are no color images until the 5th n-section or so

07:43:37 <hppavilion[1]> Al Qaeda referred to 9/11 by the codename "The Big Wedding", because they are the biggest assholes on the face of the earth
07:52:08 <hppavilion[1]> Wow, the FAA didn't start grounding planes (well, it didn't order to ground ALL planes) until after the 3 successful attacks
07:52:10 <hppavilion[1]> Good job, FAA
07:52:19 <FreeFull> I thought ISIS is the biggest assholes
07:52:38 <hppavilion[1]> FreeFull: Eh, they're probably deeply connected to Al Qaeda
07:52:56 <FreeFull> Didn't Al Qaeda denounce them?
07:53:46 <FreeFull> "In February 2014, after a prolonged dispute with al-Qaeda in Iraq's successor organisation, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), al-Qaeda publicly announced it was cutting all ties with the group, reportedly for its brutality and "notorious intractability"."
07:55:05 <hppavilion[1]> "Mohammed said al-Qaeda initially planned to target nuclear installations rather than the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, but decided against it, fearing things could "get out of control".["
07:55:13 <hppavilion[1]> FreeFull: Oh, wow
07:55:59 <FreeFull> ISIS is too extreme even for the extremists
07:57:01 <zzo38> I am not surprised of that.
07:58:38 <zzo38> I think someone is hiding something about the attacks on World Trade Center, but I don't know what, exactly. Maybe the US government somehow convinced them to attack World Trade Center instead of nuclear installations, for reasons of hidden motives...?
07:58:49 <hppavilion[1]> "New York City 911 operators who received calls from individuals inside the tower were not well informed of the situation as it rapidly unfolded and as a result, told callers not to descend the tower on their own."
07:59:28 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Aaaaaand now you're a conspiracy theorist. Your complimentary tinfoil hat will be delivered in 9-11 business days.
08:03:54 <zzo38> I think a tinfoil hat is not of much help; wire mesh is probably more effective, but you might need a lot more than that
08:04:27 <\oren\> So I went downstairs to look in my Britannica
08:05:47 <\oren\> Yeah, they had pictures.
08:09:57 <\oren\> It's a pity the web version of the Britannica is so stupid
08:18:00 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Pffft. REAL conspiracy theorists wear faraday cages
08:18:49 <\oren\> My aunt wore tinfoil liner under her jacket and hat for a while
08:19:43 <hppavilion[1]> Hm, I wonder if I could make a stylish tinfoil hat
08:19:58 <\oren\> she thought her pastor was using a microwave to mind control people or something
08:19:59 <hppavilion[1]> Do young conspiracy theorists in schools get to wear their tinfoil hats?
08:20:11 <\oren\> probably
08:20:25 <hppavilion[1]> (for those living abroad, in US schools students are banned from wearing hats because gang members also wear hats)
08:27:00 <hppavilion[1]> ...Huh
08:27:12 <hppavilion[1]> How do they ship devices used for automatically paying tolls?
08:31:04 <\oren\> presumably the device can be activated on delivery
08:31:32 <hppavilion[1]> "The NAACP denounces the use of both nigga and nigger."
08:31:41 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: Yeah, but apparently they just put them in lead-lined bags
08:31:55 <hppavilion[1]> Their denouncement includes when used by black people
08:32:44 <hppavilion[1]> Because, of course, the NAACP has the authority to prescribe the culture and language that should be used by black people, and all black people are the same of course so anything sweeping like that is OK
08:33:25 <hppavilion[1]> NAACP should probably be renamed to the NAARC (National African American Regulation Center) or something like that
08:33:27 <\oren\> whatver... I'm coming to the conclusion that the entire anglosphere is probably doomed
08:36:54 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: Anglosphere is a nice word
08:37:13 <hppavilion[1]> Why are all communities/networks of communities "spheres"?

09:18:06 <hppavilion[1]> Probably because voicing 'h' makes you sound retarded (in the actual, clinical sense; not in an offensive, colloquial sense)
09:24:33 <\oren\> there is a voiced h
09:25:10 <shachaf> Is there?
09:26:12 <myname> there is an emoji based esolang

09:39:22 <\oren\> from the back of the throat
09:40:16 <fizzie> "In some languages, it has the constricted manner of articulation of a fricative. However, in many if not most it is a transitional state of the glottis, with no manner of articulation other than its phonation type. Because there is no other constriction to produce friction in the vocal tract in the languages they are familiar with, many phoneticians[who?] no longer consider [h] to be a ...
09:40:22 <fizzie> ... fricative. However, the term "fricative" is generally retained for historical reasons."

14:07:21 <oerjan> what about not increasing the madness further

14:08:24 <Cale> oerjan: that suggestion is inappropriate here

19:14:07 <hwpplayer1> boily : Hi , how are you ?
19:15:15 <hwpplayer1> are you interested in only using a language or creating a new one ?
19:15:50 <myname> mostly creating, in fact
19:16:18 <myname> even though i thought about using efghij
19:20:35 <boily> hwpplayer1: I created a few. Aubergine is my best and purplest language.
19:21:12 <myname> how purple is it
19:22:32 <boily> quite.
19:24:09 <zzo38> It will not be necessary adding spaces on both side of all punctuation mark for English writing.
19:24:17 <myname> is it more purple than purple?
19:27:00 <hwpplayer1> i should ask something , does esoteric mean that the language is not useful or it means a few people use that language and it is marginal for now
19:27:45 <myname> it doesn't have to be either
