00:01:29 <fizzie> Phantom_Hoover: Four and a bit.
00:01:41 <Phantom_Hoover> i mean since the wiki got started
00:02:24 <fizzie> Well, I don't remember when that was. But elliott said something about going to install it in 2012.
00:03:41 <fizzie> I still wouldn't have done it except that they bundled it into the MediaWiki distribution a while ago, which meant installing it was a one-line edit to LocalSettings.
00:08:20 <fizzie> Maybe around 2020 or so I'll get around to Math.

00:46:50 <quintopia> anyone watching the opening ceremony
00:47:10 <Zarutian> the what now?
00:47:20 <fizzie> The big sports thing.
00:47:32 <Zarutian> "Here we open up these new box!" is what I thought of
00:47:37 <quintopia> the biggest athletic event of the year
00:47:40 <fizzie> That's an unboxing.
00:48:42 <fizzie> There's a "Finnish people in London" facebook group, I know they're watching it in some scandinavian bar.
00:48:46 <Zarutian> quintopia: I have an permanent filter that filters out any and all sport news
00:49:09 <quintopia> Zarutian: impressive. i don't even know how you would set up such a thing.
00:49:33 <quintopia> Zarutian: nonetheless, the opening ceremony is not a sporting event, but rather a performance and a parade.
00:49:34 <Zarutian> quintopia: naah, it is more of an mental one.
00:49:39 <quintopia> the performance is usually worth watching
00:49:58 <Zarutian> my one exception is curling
00:51:11 <quintopia> so you tuned to sochi in 2014?
00:52:06 <Zarutian> nope, just found youtube (or other stored video streaming site) video of the curling
00:53:02 <quintopia> ah
00:53:14 <quintopia> why curling specifically?
00:53:20 <quintopia> did you play?
00:53:34 <Zarutian> nope, just low to watch the absurdness of it
00:53:41 <Zarutian> s/low/love/
00:54:06 <quintopia> ...yet you don't tune in for synchronized swimming or dressage? :P

00:54:47 <quintopia> yes it is
00:55:10 <Phantom_Hoover> cycle sprint is game theory conspiring to make a cycling race about who can cycle the slowest

00:55:25 <quintopia> okay, back in the 1900s, for a year or so, motorboating was an olympic sport. boats driving in circles.

03:54:26 <zzo38> GPL3 says "If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Program." I think this might be useful for protecting business interests, although the proxy should always authorize it if they do not have a good reason not to, and if the company goes defunct, they should
04:04:19 <pikhq> The proxy feature in the GPLv3 is one of its best features.
04:05:12 * izabera gets her sarcasm detector
04:07:32 -!- heroux has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds).
04:08:33 <zzo38> I doubt it is of much use unless you are running a business, but for a business it looks like a good feature.
04:12:26 <zzo38> You can just omit "or later version" and omit the proxy too, but then it can be problem if there are new versions of GPL that can be good and then they cannot be used. If you do add "or later version" then the business does not have full control over the licensing of the software they are selling, and that can be a different problem. With the proxy, you can avoid both problems.

04:15:24 <oerjan> . o O ( can you be your own proxy )
04:16:21 <zzo38> I would expect so; I do not see anything that says that you can't.
04:19:15 <pikhq> Though if you are a copyright holder, who needs a proxy?
04:19:20 <pikhq> You can dictate terms.
04:21:17 <zzo38> In case there are multiple copyright holders I suppose, or in case the copyright holder is dead.
04:22:44 <alercah> pikhq: I assume the intent is to declare yourself as the proxy for your program so that you can control icensing on derivatives?
04:22:48 <alercah> *licensing
04:23:12 <pikhq> alercah: Except you can only control licensing on derivatives made with the same terms, proxy and all.
04:23:32 <pikhq> Though, it's likely that would be the case for a decent number of projects.

18:25:18 <zzo38> If you are betting at roulette in American casino and have unlimited time, and you have $1000 but you need $2000 then what strategy is best? The answer in this case is to bet everything on black (or on red, or odd, or even). But how will the strategy differ if you need only $1500 instead, or if you need $3456 instead? What changes if there is a maximum bet imposed, or if you are betting at crap instead of roulette?
18:26:50 <int-e> if I have all the time I need why don't I just put it into a bank account :P
18:28:39 <int-e> And can we simplify this to a fair coin throw?
18:29:46 <int-e> though, perhaps not... because that would make it a zero sum game, and as long as you never overshoot your target, you'll have a 50% chance of reaching $2k and a 50% chance of going broke, regardless of your strategy.
18:30:12 <int-e> (just a simple expected value computation)
18:30:38 <int-e> "zero sum" is the wrong term, I mean expected earnings are zero.
18:32:57 <int-e> $1500 is still boring; you can just bet $500 (on one of the 18/37 chances) all the time.
18:36:35 <int-e> But for $2500, is it better to bet $500, then $1000, or vice versa?
18:37:17 <zzo38> The chance of winning is less than 50% regardless of what strategy is used. The game is memoryless, and you cannot use bank interest, other games, asking other people for help, comp bonuses, cheating, angling, etc.
18:37:35 <zzo38> And you have those good points too. I don't know what is best for $2500.
18:43:15 <zzo38> I believe you about $1500 if the game is roulette at least; but at craps I don't know because the betting is much more complicated.
18:44:33 -!- Phantom__Hoover has joined.
18:45:24 <zzo38> (I'm not sure that these complications change much, although the odds and so on seem to be more confusing, and changing bets is sometimes possible, and even bets are also sometimes possible as auxiliary bets.)
18:45:53 -!- moon_ has joined.
18:47:36 <int-e> apparently the greedy approach wins out
18:54:10 <int-e> (I get a 38.2% chance for greedy, and a 37.6% chance for the non-greedy strategy, of reaching $2500)
18:54:25 <zzo38> OK
18:55:00 <int-e> assuming 18/37 odds of winning and 19/37 odds of losing
18:56:20 <zzo38> More strange restrictions than a maximum bet would be to require the bet to be a prime number of dollars. (This restrictions is not actually used at any casino as far as I know, though.)
18:57:11 <zzo38> Or, to disallow any bet to be the same amount as any previous bet (also something that does not exist as far as I know). Or both restrictions together.

19:22:47 <zzo38> What I know is that a standard deck has 78 cards, being fourteen in each minor suit (rods, swords, cups, and coins; these are the Latin suits, some are French suited), and twenty-one trumps, and one Fool or Excuse (also sometimes considered a trump).
19:23:20 <zzo38> Also in some decks the coins have pentagrams on them; this is irrelevant, they are still the same suit of coins.

19:31:09 <zzo38> Sometimes it is fast, and sometimes very slow.
19:31:21 <zzo38> And it seems sometimes you get error messages that should not occur.
19:32:57 <int-e> I think it's slow because it's sharing a host with too many other VMs... possibly doing stupid stuff like cryptocurrency mining, password cracking and the like
19:34:43 <zzo38> O, OK
19:39:22 <int-e> (As far as I recall, HackEgo is running on one of those $35 for a life time VMs at Cloud at Cost... and overloading the hosts is pretty much the only way that this can be a sustainable business.)

21:22:19 <izabera> can we talk for a moment about the man who attacked a police station with a machete in belgium?
21:22:25 <izabera> how fucking stupid is that
21:22:34 <FireFly> quite a lot
21:22:56 <izabera> how hard is it to get a gun in belgium?
21:23:19 <FireFly> Maybe it's more about making a statement
21:23:27 <izabera> what statement?
21:23:43 <FireFly> the Gävle goat got torched one year by someone firing a fire arrow into it while being dressed up.. there's probably easier ways to torch it
21:23:55 <FireFly> but it's kind of more notable that way
21:24:19 <izabera> but he was shot dead before even managing to kill one police officer
21:24:34 <izabera> i can't think of anything more inefficient than that
21:25:04 <izabera> ok maybe if you blow yourself up /in a desert/...
21:26:26 <Zarutian> they dont have anti-riot-foam? (Basically uhu glue or equiv forced through an areosolizer)
21:26:49 <izabera> where can i get a ton of that?
21:27:06 <zzo38> Maybe they want to die without too much police investigations?
21:32:31 <int-e> izabera: could be a suicide by proxy thing, rather than poltical
21:33:10 <Zarutian> izabera: hardware stores and general stores? Just take the areosolizer (must be of metal) of an spraycan, make a pressure container that has that plus ports for four of those sodastream/whipped-cream CO2 charges. Take the glue and put it in the pressure container, use four CO2 charges.
21:34:22 <izabera> you should start selling it
21:35:51 <izabera> i don't even know what to think of that suicide by proxy thing
21:35:58 <izabera> reading about it for the first time now
21:38:39 <int-e> Hmm, I've read the term somewhere, I didn't know it was born out of a religious loophole.
