02:33:44 <tswett> You've got a partially ordered set. Initially, every element of the set is labeled with 0.
02:34:16 <tswett> There's an algorithm you can perform on this set.
02:34:50 <tswett> Actually, scratch the "initially all 0" bit. They're all labeled with integers, but not necessary 0.
02:35:52 <tswett> Step 1: identify all pairs of two comparable elements which are labeled with the same number. Step 2: if no pairs were identified in step 1, stop. Step 3: for each pair identified in step 1, increase the label of the greater element by 1, and decrease the label of the lesser element by 1. Step 4: return to step 1.
02:36:31 <tswett> It's an odd kind of sorting algorithm, I suppose.
02:36:44 <tswett> So, the question.
02:37:13 <tswett> Is there a shortcut for finding the result of this algorithm, which will give you the result faster than just naively evaluating the algorithm would?
02:39:20 <oerjan> hm does that necessarily sort
02:39:51 <tswett> No.
02:40:03 <tswett> If all elements initially have different labels, the algorithm does nothing.
02:40:15 <oerjan> i mean, even if you start with all 0.
02:40:53 <oerjan> also, an element in step 3 can be part of more than one pair, possibly on different sides.
02:41:10 <tswett> I think no. Suppose the set is a > b, a > c, a > d, e > a.
02:41:26 <tswett> Then after one iteration, a goes to 2, e goes to 1, b-d go to -1, and the algorithm stops.
02:41:42 <tswett> a ends up with a higher label than e even though it's lesser.
02:41:48 <oerjan> doesn't a go to 1.
02:41:52 <oerjan> no wait
02:42:00 <tswett> No; its label is increased 3 times and decreased once.
02:42:20 <oerjan> very well.
02:42:54 <oerjan> no idea on your main question.
02:43:57 <tswett> There's probably no easy way, since it's a somewhat complex and arbitrary algorithm.
02:44:06 <tswett> Perhaps one could even make a programming language out of it.
02:44:15 <oerjan> your task shall be to prove this PSPACE-complete hth

02:44:29 * oerjan evil grin
02:44:30 <tswett> os
02:45:07 <oerjan> actually, -hard, it's obviously not a decision problem.
02:46:47 <oerjan> actually, there's probably some number that's increasing at each step, so not that hard.
02:47:26 <izabera> the number of steps so far is increasing at each step!
02:48:00 <alercah> hmm
02:48:16 <tswett> Is the algorithm guaranteed to terminate?
02:48:22 * tswett thinks!
02:48:34 <alercah> I believe so
02:48:40 <tswett> The label of a maximal element never decreases and the label of a minimal element never increases. So the spread never decreases.
02:48:41 <alercah> I think it would need a cycle in the order to go indefinitely
02:49:14 <tswett> If the spread increases indefinitely, then the size of the smallest gap tends to infinity.
02:49:21 <oerjan> i think the "spread" is the kind of number i was thinking of.
02:49:44 <alercah> if spread is the difference between highest and lowest numbers, it's not strictly increasing
02:49:51 <tswett> If the spread does not increase indefinitely, the whole thing must cycle.
02:49:54 <oerjan> obviously there's a maximal possible gap.
02:50:26 <oerjan> for a given graph.
02:50:34 <tswett> Is that so?
02:51:05 <tswett> Hm, something just occurred to me.
02:51:16 <oerjan> i think so anyway.
02:51:35 <tswett> Wait, something else just occurred to me.
02:51:46 <tswett> Let me go back to the first thing.
02:52:00 <tswett> You could think of this as "moving tokens" between elements. Tokens only ever move from lesser elements to greater elements.
02:52:08 <oerjan> in order to increase an element, another element must be decreased, and there is a maximal amount for each.
02:52:21 <alercah> tswett: ah yes
02:52:23 <oerjan> and they had to be equal to start with.
02:52:29 <alercah> yeah so that guarantees termination
02:52:36 <oerjan> hm right
02:52:44 <alercah> oh wait, not on its own it doesn't
02:53:25 <tswett> And they never move "with the gradient".
02:53:38 <alercah> since there's an infinite supply
02:53:47 <alercah> but for one element to decrease indefinitely
02:54:04 <alercah> it must give charge to another element of the same charge
02:54:27 <alercah> so that element must decrease indefinitely, and have two other infinitely decreasing elements to give it charge
02:54:36 <tswett> Sounds about right.
02:54:46 <alercah> (or some combination of other elements which give it charge faster than the first one takes it, anyway)
02:54:53 <tswett> Technically, I never said that the set must be finite. But I was thinking it all along.
02:54:58 <alercah> this turns into an infinite regression
02:55:11 <alercah> you might be able to concoct something weird with an infinite poset
02:55:20 <alercah> certainly it wouldn't necessarily terminate
02:55:37 <alercah> just label each natural number with itself and set the charge of 0 to 1
02:55:51 <alercah> then each iteration just moves the excess charge to the next number

06:03:53 <Anarchokawaii> For reason and revolt now thunders
06:04:07 <hppavilion[1]> But honestly, I really hate both major candidates
06:04:10 <Anarchokawaii> At last ends the age of can't
06:04:38 <hppavilion[1]> Trump is an abomination before god, and Hillary seems a little disturbing AND plays the gender card too much
06:04:51 -!- tromp_ has joined.
06:05:44 <hppavilion[1]> tromp_ is cool. Trump is not cool.
06:06:15 <hppavilion[1]> Like, for me, it's not "If x wins the election I'm moving out" so much as "If any of the major candidates wins the election I'm moving out"
06:07:11 <hppavilion[1]> Hopefully, something bizarre will happen and Bernie will be nominated instead of Hillary (many of the states she won she only won because of already-bizarre and broken rules)
06:07:47 <pikhq> It would take something really weird for Bernie to get nominated, and there is *no way* he's running third party.
06:08:20 <hppavilion[1]> pikhq: Even if he did run third party, is would be unlikely for him to win third party
06:08:39 <pikhq> Yep.
06:08:41 <hppavilion[1]> (Has third party EVER won, barring third parties that were actively becoming first or second party?)
06:08:50 <pikhq> He'd be splitting the Dem vote.
06:09:27 -!- tromp_ has quit (Ping timeout: 264 seconds).
06:11:20 <hppavilion[1]> pikhq: Yeah, that'd be a problem
06:11:31 <Anarchokawaii> hilary clinton was on the board of directors of walmart
06:11:37 <hppavilion[1]> Anarchokawaii: Really?
06:11:50 <Anarchokawaii> yeah
06:12:32 <Anarchokawaii> http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/01/31/clinton-remained-silent-a_n_84246.html
06:13:07 * pikhq isn't exactly pleased by Hillary, but of the likely candidates she's definitely preferable.
06:13:52 <hppavilion[1]> Yep, found it
06:14:04 <hppavilion[1]> pikhq: Hillary is definitely the best option out of the major ones
06:14:19 <hppavilion[1]> (Translation: Hillary is better than Trump, but that's not really an accomplishment)
06:14:32 <hppavilion[1]> I mean, I really would love to see Trump as president
06:14:43 <hppavilion[1]> But only in the Seth Meyers Chicago President scenario
06:16:42 <Anarchokawaii> fuck hilary clinton
06:16:47 <Anarchokawaii> fuck the clintons
06:17:36 <hppavilion[1]> Anarchokawaii: Lewinski certainly took that advice to heart
06:18:02 <Anarchokawaii> haha
06:18:17 <hppavilion[1]> But yeah, seriously, fuck Hillary
06:19:11 <hppavilion[1]> Sure, the US should probably have had a female president by now (barring: Edith Wilson, possibly), but we shouldn't elect a woman solely to get that; we should elect a woman because her policies are something we want, and her reproductive organs are just a cool afterthought to the election
06:19:30 <hppavilion[1]> "Hey, does this make her the first woman president?" "Oh yeah, I think it does, cool!"
06:21:18 <pikhq> It's not as though that's the only reason people are voting for her though.
06:21:33 <pikhq> Remember, many people genuinely *like* the Clintons.
06:21:47 <hppavilion[1]> pikhq: Yeah, but she plays that card far too much
06:21:53 <hppavilion[1]> Like, one time makes me a little uncomfortable
06:21:59 <hppavilion[1]> There are compilations of her using that argument
06:22:49 <hppavilion[1]> I'm also not a fan of Bill Clinton, because he made the policy that says if you have ever been convicted of a felony- no matter how minor, no matter if you served your time and changed- you can't get access to public housing (or numerous other government benefits, IIRC)
06:27:22 <hppavilion[1]> Has anyone actually attempted to realize the title text of https://xkcd.com/856/?

08:32:46 <lambdabot> Taneb said 5s ago: that might be a good idea
08:32:55 <shachaf> I'm right here, you don't need to tell lambdabot to tell me things.

08:42:29 <shachaf> Why not? Because you actually invented them?
08:42:45 <Taneb> Because they're more like pieces of art
08:43:04 <shachaf> So is necessity.
08:43:09 <shachaf> Not to mention D-modules.
08:43:18 <shachaf> I can't believe D-modules are gone from Tanebventions.
08:43:24 <shachaf> They were the centerpiece.
08:43:29 <shachaf> `? tanebventions: maths
08:43:32 <HackEgo> Mathematical tanebventions include D-modules, Chu spaces, the torus, Stephen Wolfram, Klein bottles, the reals, Lambek's lemma, pointless topology, and histograms.
08:43:55 <shachaf> And it ruined the whole meter (or is it metre?) of the wisdom entry.
08:44:04 <shachaf> I previously had it set to music, in my head.
08:44:35 <shachaf> How quickly can you solve your Rubik's cube?
08:45:30 <Taneb> My best is 1 minute 40
08:45:59 <shachaf> I think I used to solve in around 2 minutes.
08:46:09 <shachaf> That was over a decade ago, of course.
08:46:21 <shachaf> When oerjan roamed the Earth.
08:46:36 <shachaf> (I guess he trondheims the Earth now.)
08:46:43 <shachaf> I'm not sure I even remember how to solve it now.
08:46:53 <shachaf> I probably could figure it out.
08:51:41 <hppavilion[1]> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dates_predicted_for_apocalyptic_events includes, towards the very end, actual legit predictions
08:52:06 <shachaf> See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_far_future
08:52:12 <shachaf> I wouldn't call those "dates" exactly.

08:53:18 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: By that logic, neither is carbon dating

08:54:42 <hppavilion[1]> (Or maybe it's in the past one)

08:56:59 <hppavilion[1]> OK, you know what?
08:57:06 <hppavilion[1]> nth century is confusing
08:57:19 <hppavilion[1]> The years from 1 to 99 will henceforth be known as the "0th century"
08:57:37 <hppavilion[1]> And all subsequent centuries will be calculated using all but the last 2 digits
08:57:43 <hppavilion[1]> We're in the 20th century right now. Thre.
08:57:47 <hppavilion[1]> *There.
08:58:59 <Taneb> I think you might find it hard to gain adoption for your idea, hppavilion[1]
08:59:15 <hppavilion[1]> Taneb: Yeah, well...
08:59:18 <hppavilion[1]> Yeah, you're right
08:59:20 <hppavilion[1]> But still.
08:59:23 <hppavilion[1]> It's stupid.
08:59:37 <hppavilion[1]> Wikipedia often mixes them in the same paragraph, which leads to confusion
09:00:23 <hppavilion[1]> Imagine: "In 1604, a manuscript quoting a late 16th-century physician..."
09:00:32 * hppavilion[1] prays that he got those in the right order
09:02:09 <hppavilion[1]> Huh, the world is definitely not going to end this year
09:02:41 <shachaf> It *is* confusing.
09:02:47 <shachaf> And people are elitist about it, too.
09:03:03 <Taneb> hppavilion[1], not many words rhyme with "sixteen"
09:03:04 <shachaf> They learned that "xth century" means "the century whose first two digits are x-1"
09:03:28 <shachaf> And now they look down on anyone who forgets that or finds it difficult to do in the middle of a conversation about something else.
09:03:31 <shachaf> Plain elitism.
09:07:21 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Plane Elitism
09:07:37 <hppavilion[1]> Yeah, just because you're a circle means you're better than everybody else.

09:26:10 <b_jonas> thx
09:31:11 <myname> good morning to you, too
09:38:03 <fizzie> Finnish doesn't use "Nth century", we use something that's a bit akin to e.g. "1800s", "1900s" and so on.
09:39:31 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: All the people I've seen use both, so...
09:39:46 <b_jonas> fizzie: yes, that's much easier than the crazy measurement units people use here, where the amount of meat you ask can be eg. 20 decagrams, 40 decagrams, or half a kilo, all measured in whatever unit gives the shortest pronunciation
09:40:10 <b_jonas> it's just ridiculous
09:40:42 <fizzie> hppavilion[1]: Well, we never use the "Nth century" form.
09:40:58 <fizzie> Except Google Translate apparently does, if you ask for English-to-Finnish. But it shouldn't.
09:41:10 <b_jonas> and the scales print slips saying eg. "200 g", "400 g", "500 g" because the crazy units are no longer shorter in writing
09:43:26 <myname> is 200 such a long word in relation to 20?
09:43:45 <myname> also, where is "here"?
09:44:16 <b_jonas> `? bioethics
09:44:17 <HackEgo> bioethics? ¯\(°​_o)/¯
09:44:59 <b_jonas> myname: well no, I guess "400 grams" would actually be shorter than "40 decagrams"
09:45:05 <b_jonas> so it's not strictly the shortest version
09:45:26 <int-e> would you say "40 decas"?
09:46:30 <int-e> (here we use "kilo" for "kilogram" when shopping... so why not do the same for decagrams (a unit, that fortunately, isn't fashionable here))
09:48:13 <b_jonas> int-e: yes, and to complicate the issue, depending on the sentence it may be in two different cases, which also affects which one is shorter, by one syllable
09:49:05 <myname> b_jonas: where is "here"?
09:49:56 <hppavilion[1]> Oh...
09:49:59 <hppavilion[1]> There was another attack in france?
09:50:16 <b_jonas> myname: Hungary
09:51:01 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: another compared to what? there was one yesterday evening
09:51:56 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: The one in paris a few months ago
09:52:04 <hppavilion[1]> I saw a logo with the French flag in it on... a site
09:52:28 <hppavilion[1]> And I assumed it was an anniversary of an attack
09:52:52 <hppavilion[1]> (I initially thought Paris, but it felt like it couldn't be Paris because it was way too recent)
09:53:05 <hppavilion[1]> And... yeah, another one
09:53:12 <b_jonas> this one was in Nice

14:27:00 <adu> hppavilion[1]: the way I was tought was that 1st world = Americas + Europe, 2nd world = Asia (e.g. Russia, China), and 3rd world = Africa
14:27:47 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Technically, the 1/2/3 comes from first world = U.S. and allies, 2nd world = USSR and allies, 3rd world = neutral
14:28:36 <adu> well, then my teacher was dumb
14:30:12 <hppavilion[1]> But now, 1st world is developed countries and 3rd world is shitty countries
14:30:32 <gamemanj> then what's the 2nd?
14:31:42 <hppavilion[1]> gamemanj: We kind of dropped it
14:31:58 <gamemanj> ...that's just plain confusing. My guesses were: Britain? Spain? Turkey? Alternate universes where Mirai Nikki is streamed to TVs to show what will happen to the world if the omnipotent government falls?
14:33:06 <adu> gamemanj: the 2nd dissappeared when the USSR did
14:33:37 <gamemanj> So, that'll be option 4 then.
14:34:18 <hppavilion[1]> I want cyrillic alphabet soup
14:35:18 <adu> Сою́з Сове́тских Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик
14:36:04 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: Russian or Serbian? I'm still not convinced that "cyrillic" is a single script other than for political and historical reasons.
14:36:19 <b_jonas> I think it's two scripts.
14:36:39 <adu> b_jonas: Latin is a script
14:36:44 <b_jonas> adu: yes
14:37:04 <adu> b_jonas: almost every european language is written in Latin
14:38:06 <b_jonas> adu: Latin is a script, including even the extra-high version the Vietnamese language uses, because in a Hungarian text people use the original spelling of any proper nouns if its original spelling is in the Latin script, but transcribe it by pronunciation instead if it's not in the Latin script. That is my criterion for considering something a single script.
14:38:31 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
14:38:47 <b_jonas> Russian text typically transcribes Serbian or Macedonian names, rather than using the original form, because it's not really the same script.
14:40:29 <b_jonas> The two are just treated the same script for some historical reasons (probably originally political), and it's very impractical to change that now, because there are shittons of text from both script encoded in the overlapping set of unicode characters, and every software expects those characters and uses different fonts for them depending on the language.
14:41:03 <adu> Vietnamese isn't written in Latin
14:41:11 <b_jonas> adu: what
14:41:23 <b_jonas> it usually is, these days
14:41:37 <b_jonas> there used to be a kanji script for it, but it's barely used now
14:41:55 <adu> Vietnamese can be written in Latin, just as any syllables can, but Vietnamese should be written in Han/Kanji
14:42:14 <b_jonas> adu: yes, and Serbian can also be written in two different scripts... it's complicated
14:42:38 <b_jonas> I don't care what it *should* be written in, but it's very often written in Latin script
14:45:39 <b_jonas> Hmm, xkcd phone 4 is better than xkcd phone 3, because in xkcd phone 4, battery is included
14:48:14 <fizzie> 12 headphone jacks sounds like quite a lot.

14:52:59 <gamemanj> uh, the battery is non-rechargable???
14:53:15 <b_jonas> That'd be a good feature actually, then people wouldn't buy the too expensive phones that they can't afford to replace when the display breaks and keep using with a broken display.
14:53:27 <b_jonas> gamemanj: yes.
14:53:39 <gamemanj> welp, useless

15:14:05 <zzo38> Use for recording on a tape
15:19:47 <b_jonas> Well, 3 headphone jacks are useful so you don't have to disconnect the speaker while you're copying a game from one casette to another easily.

15:23:07 <zzo38> If you have external tape recorder you will need only those to copy a tape, but if the tape stores digital data then maybe it will be useful to go through a computer first in order to reencode the data to avoid lossiness, maybe

15:24:19 <zzo38> Yes, if you do not want to copy the entire tape.

15:25:11 <b_jonas> gamemanj: barely. the parity bits maybe. I don't think there's any more advanced error-correcting code on the casettes. they're not CD-rom.
15:25:36 <b_jonas> gamemanj: ah yes, true! you wear 5.1 sided headphones for that and listen with your 5.1 ears
15:25:44 <gamemanj> yes

15:26:38 <gamemanj> (I'm not actually sure what the purpose of 5.1 is, really)
15:27:20 <b_jonas> what I don't understand is, does this have an internal modem, and if so, where do you plug in the TP telephone cable, otherwise where do you plug in the serial cable?
15:27:37 <gamemanj> There's a parallel port on the bottom, so...
15:27:46 <gamemanj> you could probably find some way of converting serial to parallel
15:27:50 <b_jonas> hmm
15:27:58 <gamemanj> though, that port does imply the phone is REALLY big
15:28:35 <b_jonas> maybe you need an USB modem
15:28:45 <b_jonas> and plug it in the USB E port
15:28:53 <gamemanj> Actually I don't see a USB port on it

15:57:20 <zzo38> It is used to deal with Hamster archives
15:57:30 <zzo38> (Other programs exist but they aren't very good)
15:57:48 <gamemanj> I'm not even sure what byte order is being used in this...
15:58:00 <gamemanj> I'm guessing that's the format's fault?
15:58:08 <zzo38> Yes it is the format's fault.
15:58:18 <zzo38> But, the byte order is the PDP byte order.
15:58:36 -!- choochter has joined.
15:59:30 <zzo38> (It is not a very good byte order, but that is how Hamster archive works.)
15:59:38 <gamemanj> That byte order would probably break most C applications nowadays :)
15:59:52 <gamemanj> they support little-endian, they support big-endian, but I bet they don't support PDP-endian
16:00:52 <zzo38> You can easily implement any of those three ways in a C code though, independently of the native endian of the computer.
16:01:24 <zzo38> Such thing is needed anyways because it is different for different file formats and protocols. (Many file formats and network protocols use big-endian.)
16:02:34 <gamemanj> I'm pretty sure some people fread into a struct buffer and then switch the ints around, which is fine for the standard endians, but not good if the computer is anything "unsupported"... better to do what you do in har.c and get/put each char individually

22:32:20 <\oren\> Coup in turkey: Erdogan addresses the nation via skype on a phone held up to the news camera
22:32:37 <\oren\> Very presidential
22:33:17 <Taneb> It seems a regime barely holding on
22:33:37 <\oren\> meanwhile the military says they have seized control and are fighting the turkish police in the streets
22:34:59 <\oren\> Sputnik news claims Erdogan is trying to get out of Turkey via ataturk airport
22:35:14 <izabera> are we happy or not for the coup in turkey?
22:35:28 <izabera> i just came home and know barely anything about it
22:35:52 <\oren\> Well... the military *claims* they are seizing control to protect human rights
22:36:08 <izabera> sounds good to me
22:36:23 <\oren\> And certainly a lot of people in Turkey and the rest of the world are tired of Erdogan's bullshit
22:37:53 <alercah> NBC's reporting that erdogan is requesting asylum from germany now
22:39:25 <Taneb> alercah, I'll definitely add UW to my list of places to think about
22:39:52 <alercah> Taneb: what area would you be looking to study?
22:40:36 <Taneb> alercah, Functional programming type things, ideally
22:40:42 <Taneb> Possibly category or group theory
22:40:44 <alercah> Taneb: hmm
22:40:52 <alercah> not sure UW's the best school for that honestly
22:40:58 <Taneb> It's a place I can apply to
22:41:02 <alercah> it is!
22:41:07 <Taneb> I aim to cast a wide net
22:41:10 <alercah> if you want algebra, try the pure math department
22:41:13 <alercah> not just CS
22:41:56 <Taneb> That's a good point

22:51:15 <moon_> Anyone know a interpreter for underload that is in node.js? we (yes, there are 3 others working on it, with solace at the head of the project) are making a bundle of buildin interpreters for it
22:51:25 <moon_> ]oh
22:51:32 <moon_> i forgot to mention this is for hbot
22:51:33 <moon_> lol
22:51:45 <alercah> Taneb: anything type theory like is definitely more suited to PM at UW than to CS as well
