00:01:59 * oerjan in relevant news seems to have developed this weird jealousy of édith piaf.
00:03:08 <oerjan> also, i found a nice proof of the figure 8 thing, which may or may not be what everyone else knows but in any case seems to generalize like heck topologically.
00:04:22 <shachaf> what's your nice proof
00:04:45 <oerjan> first, pick a countable dense sequence x_n in the plane.
00:05:48 <oerjan> then, for each figure 8 in your set, and for each component it splits its complement into, pick an element in the sequence from that complement. (you can do this without choice.)
00:06:14 <oerjan> then, disjoint figure 8s cannot pick the same triple.
00:06:35 <oerjan> so you have an explicit bijection with a countable set QED
00:08:37 <oerjan> this generalizes like heck because the only thing you use (modulo _maybe_ some weak topological axiom) is (1) R^2 is connected and has a countable dense subset (2) figure 8s are closed connected sets whose complement has at least 3 connected components.

00:45:59 <oerjan> quintopia: i've been thinking a bit about the problems wob_jonas (?) mentioned recently
00:46:19 <wob_jonas> oerjan: which one?
00:46:31 <oerjan> wob_jonas: the figure 8 and T-shape ones.
00:47:01 <oerjan> my proof for the first can be adapted (and simplified) for the second, it seems.
00:47:17 <wob_jonas> oerjan: which T-shaped one? the easier one where you have the base of the T on a line and they're nicely vertical and horizontal, or the harder one where the tees can be anywhere and the two lines can be in any direction (as long as they're not parallel)?
00:47:17 <quintopia> oerjan: at one what timestamp were thet mentioned?
00:47:30 <oerjan> the former.
00:47:34 <wob_jonas> oerjan: I haven't solved the figure eight one yet, I'll have to think about that
00:47:42 <oerjan> quintopia: i've forgot.
00:47:59 <quintopia> wob_jonas: do you has link?
00:48:04 <oerjan> wob_jonas: ah ok. don't read scrollback then >:)
00:48:29 <wob_jonas> quintopia: I think it was someone else who mentioned the figure eights first... let me look for a link
00:48:42 <shachaf> There's a link but it's in Hungarian.
00:48:53 <shachaf> The thing it links to, I mean. I think the Link itself is in English.
00:48:54 <oerjan> wob_jonas: although i'll have to check if my proof still works for the harder...
00:48:56 <shachaf> s/L/l/
00:49:14 <wob_jonas> shachaf: that one doesn't tell anything about the figure eights. it's a proof about the tees
00:49:19 <quintopia> shachaf: halp i dont magyar
00:49:37 <wob_jonas> but the figure eight problem is posed in the logs
00:49:53 <oerjan> wob_jonas: i think quite possibly it does, in fact.
00:49:54 <wob_jonas> oerjan: iirc the easy version of the tee has a quite short simple solution
00:51:25 <oerjan> mine is also short enough...
00:51:26 <wob_jonas> quintopia: http://tunes.org/~nef/logs/esoteric/16.07.28 starting from /01:23:38/
00:52:32 <wob_jonas> oerjan: on the forum, the general tee version was given with thumbtacks in 3-space:
00:52:41 <wob_jonas> from the same log page, "01:55:05 <b_jonas> the harder problem was: how many pairwise non-overlapping nails can you fit in 3-space, where a nail is the union of a circular disk and a segment such that the endpoint of the segment is the center of the disk and the two aren't coplanar."
00:52:53 <wob_jonas> but I don't think it's much harder than the 2d version
00:53:14 <oerjan> oh wait no it doesn't, not directly.
00:55:48 <wob_jonas> oh right, I remember the easy and short solution for the easy version of the tees (mushrooms) now
00:56:09 <wob_jonas> should I tell it, or would that be too much of a spoiler?
00:56:20 <int-e> you could always paste it somewhere
00:56:32 <wob_jonas> how fluent are people here in rot13 or base64?
00:56:39 <wob_jonas> is that sufficient for spoilers?
00:56:47 <wob_jonas> or do I have to, like, use a strong encryption?

00:57:16 <int-e> I wouldn't be surprised to find people fluent in rot13 here
00:57:25 <wob_jonas> yeah
00:57:31 <int-e> but base64 seems a bit of a stretch.
00:57:51 <wob_jonas> paste then, it's easier than a strong encryption

00:58:30 <HackEgo> Learned «hungarian»
00:59:23 <zzo38> I think ROT13 is commonly used, but there are other ways such as to send a private message, or a UHS cipher
00:59:40 <wob_jonas> Problem: prove that you can't place more than a countable number of non-intersecting tee shapes (mushrooms) in the plane, such that a tee shape is the union of a vertical segment that goes upwards from the x axis and a horizontal segment whose midpoint is the top of the vertical segment.
00:59:53 <shachaf> zzo38: A private message doesn't work because people not included in the message might retroactively want to look at the solution in the logs.
01:00:13 <shachaf> zzo38: UHS cipher doesn't work because no one knows how it works except for you.
01:00:30 <boily> solution: use québécois.
01:01:07 <zzo38> The code for FreeUHS is public domain you can easily view it. But, also here is the decoder for the UHS cipher in JavaScript: const decoder=Array.from({length:96}).map((x,y)=>String.fromCharCode((y*2+Math.floor(y/48))%96+32)).join(""); const decode=x=>x.replace(/./g,x=>decoder[x.charCodeAt()-32]);
01:01:20 <pikhq> ROT13 seems appropriate for spoilers in active conversation (rather than an actually secret message).
01:01:44 <shachaf> zzo38: Are you sure that it doesn't violate the Digital Millenium Copyright Act?
01:01:48 <zzo38> pikhq: Yes, and it is what is commonly used and probably should be if you do not have a good reason to not to
01:02:13 <pikhq> For example: Fancr xvyyrq Qhzoyrqber.

01:06:07 <wob_jonas> I guess if you learn to read rot13, that's just hurting yourself, just like if you learn to read the fucking numbers on the eye test table. Do you know how hard it is to fight the latter?
01:07:01 <oerjan> wob_jonas: hm ok, that's simpler than my solution, but similar.
01:07:22 <wob_jonas> I think I still only know the 42 and that it's made of the digits 12345679, but I had to actively try to forget it at examinations.
01:07:50 <shachaf> wob_jonas's T solution is almost identical to the 8 solution I know.
01:08:27 <wob_jonas> These days I'm measured by a different different eye test chart page, not the classical one, so now I have to fight not to remember that one.
01:09:52 <wob_jonas> Hopefully sooner or later they'll just use random-generated ones (at least for the letter/number recognition tests, not the other tests).
01:11:05 <wob_jonas> Electronic technology is always getting cheaper, so I think that time will come soon enough (like a couple of years).

01:13:41 <wob_jonas> shachaf: sure, that's the sensible outcome, but did you also feel that was a problem?
01:14:12 <shachaf> What, fighting to avoid memorizing them?
01:14:27 <wob_jonas> yes
01:14:45 <wob_jonas> or feeling frustrated that they just use the same chart always
01:15:01 <wob_jonas> oh, and I think I know there's a 24 somewhere
01:15:01 <shachaf> I didn't know they use the same chart always.
01:15:14 <shachaf> There must be at least two charts.
01:15:19 <wob_jonas> and that one is more annoying, because the 42 doesn't actually matter, but the 24 is down where it does
01:15:30 <wob_jonas> shachaf: yes, there are at least three charts:
01:15:43 <shachaf> Or maybe everyone switches simultaneously.
01:15:48 <shachaf> When I was young the chart was in Hebrew. Now it's in English.

01:16:17 <wob_jonas> ah, I've never seen a hebrew one

04:25:11 <hppavilion[2]> That is, if you learn a foreign language (to babel 3-5 level), then don't use it (or similar languages) for a while, can you pick it up normally?
04:25:50 <baordog> hppavilion[2]: Depends on the person.
04:26:06 <baordog> My suggestion is to learn the language well enough to read it on an adult level.
04:26:13 <baordog> Many people who can "speak" a language can't read it at all.
04:26:24 <baordog> Couldn't read arbitrary books without a dictionary.

09:40:50 <izabera> don't cry
09:45:50 <oerjan> wyoming doesn't seem to have a state dance.
09:46:54 <izabera> why do states even have an official dance?
09:47:18 <oerjan> "where're sources for this? i've searched a bit online and can't find any reason to believe that new york's official dance is the harlem shake."
09:47:28 <oerjan> from the talk page.

11:05:15 <shachaf> It doesn't make sense to say that I give you "Profunctor p => p a b" because that means that I give you something that requires you to satisfy the Profunctor p constraint.
11:05:38 <myname> 4 graphemes?

22:33:18 <quintopia> right on. got good leads?
22:34:10 <ais523> just one and I'm worried it'll fall through
22:34:34 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:34:34 <shachaf> What sort of job?
22:35:12 <ais523> shachaf: well my experience is in computer science research
22:35:25 <ais523> I even have a PhD in that
22:35:34 <ais523> going too far out-of-field, it'd be hard for me to demonstrate I had relevant experience
22:36:23 <shachaf> Oh, that reminds me that I forgot to read your thesis.
22:37:13 <shachaf> I guess most jobs in computer science research are in academia?
22:37:27 <ais523> yes, I imagine so too
22:37:46 <ais523> that said, one of the things I'm thinking about is working for a research department of a company
22:37:57 <ais523> but I don't know how many would be working in the fields I have experience in
22:38:46 <shachaf> Are you interested in non-research computer jobs?
22:38:54 <shachaf> Not that I know much about how the whole thing works in the UK.
22:39:04 <ais523> to some extent, those are the likely "fallback"
22:39:23 <ais523> but companies are unwilling to hire someone with a PhD for a position that doesn't need one, as they assume that you'll jump ship when a better position comes along
22:40:09 <shachaf> Is that true?
22:40:29 <ais523> not sure (second-hand information), it seems plausible though
22:40:31 <shachaf> I think I heard that Google typically hires people with PhDs at one level above people without.
22:40:52 <shachaf> Often for roughly the same sort of work.
22:41:01 <shachaf> But I might be wrong about the sort of work or the rest of it.
22:41:58 <ais523> it's possible I guess
22:42:08 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
22:42:11 <ais523> the problem with working for Google is that it's physically in London
22:42:31 <ais523> and I was hoping for a job somewhat nearer
22:42:47 <ais523> (London is just about within reasonable commuting range in terms of time, but not in terms of money spent)
22:42:48 -!- lleu has quit (Quit: That's what she said).
22:43:16 <shachaf> Well, only an example that I heard about.
22:43:44 <Phantom_Hoover> ais523, ah well you just have to hold out for hs2
22:44:00 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: that makes it still faster, I expect, but probably not any less expensive
22:45:02 <ais523> (also, terminating at Curzon Street Station is possibly not the best of plans; sure, it's a disused station in the centre of Birmingham, so must have seemed like a good idea, but the *reason* it's disused is that it's sufficiently far from the centre that people forgot about it)
22:45:12 <shachaf> What sort of expense is it?
22:48:16 <ais523> shachaf: if using a slow train and buying the ticket well in advance, it appears to cost £16 in each direction: http://ojp.nationalrail.co.uk/service/timesandfares/BHM/EUS/031016/0900/arr/031016/1700/dep
22:48:25 <ais523> that requires getting up over three hours in advance
22:48:59 <shachaf> That sounds terrible.
22:49:26 <ais523> the fastest trains appear to cost £85 one way
22:49:39 <ais523> with no benefit for buying a return ticket
22:50:24 <ais523> or £55 if you miss rush hour
22:51:44 <shachaf> Well, Birmingham is over 100 miles from London, apparently.
22:51:54 <shachaf> Sounds like a scow commute no matter what the price is.
22:52:24 <ais523> it is probably the most heavily competed and optimized intercity journey
22:52:30 <ais523> but even then it's not what you want to be doing on a commute
22:52:54 <shachaf> In a situation like that I think I'd prefer to just move to London.
22:53:25 <ais523> (not to mention, there's /also/ the issue of getting to the exact endpoints that you want; there actually used to be a high-rise block of flats physically above New Street Station but it's been demolished, and a job in London is unlikely to be right next to Euston or Marylebone)
22:53:50 <shachaf> That's what fizzie did, rather than commute from Finland.
22:54:24 <ais523> yes but commuting from Finland to London is probably not temporally viable
22:55:05 <ais523> you *might* be able to do it fast enough in a military plane, but that would be cost-prohibitive in addition to probably not available to the general public
22:57:25 <ais523> incidentally I think the UK has at least one startup that's trying to substitute planes for trains, but I don't know how popular they are
22:57:34 <ais523> there's also the possibility of coach travel I guess, let me check hat
22:57:36 <ais523> *that
22:59:53 <ais523> £20 return but it takes over 2 and a half hours each way

23:00:19 <ais523> this is believable, the coaches are limited by the road speed limit of 70mph, the rail speed limits are higher
23:00:34 <ais523> maybe we should build a hyperloop :-P
23:00:44 <shachaf> You should bring that up in #trains.
23:01:02 <ais523> (note: the UK is a very unlikely place to build one, our population density is very high, meaning that finding a path for new transport corridors is very hard)
23:01:34 <shachaf> It isn't all that easy in the US either.
23:01:57 <shachaf> Anyway you could move to California. I heard that's where all the cool people go.
23:02:20 <ais523> if I'm unwilling to move within the UK (and I am), I don't want to move to the US either
23:03:47 <shachaf> Oh, I didn't see that you were unwilling to move.
23:03:47 <quintopia> that's the reason i never found an industry job i think. i was unwilling to compromise and take a job that didn't absolutely thrill me
23:05:01 <ais523> quintopia: I think half of my problem may be taking job postings at face value
23:05:10 <ais523> if they ask for a bunch of experience I don't have I tend not to apply
23:05:46 <quintopia> ais523: yeah i do it too :/
23:05:48 <shachaf> Yes, job postings are scow.
23:06:52 <shachaf> The whole system is a mess.
