02:17:54 <oerjan> tocharian is indo-european, which i already implicitly excluded.
02:18:51 <oerjan> it probably was though, "The subject matter of the texts suggests that Tocharian A was more archaic and used as a Buddhist liturgical language"

15:32:26 <b_jonas> Ok, so Knuth has updated the prediction on his homepage, so volume 5 of TAOCP is now "Estimated to be ready in 2025." rather than in 2020 as he's predicted before.
15:32:53 <b_jonas> According to the archive.org wayback machine, this change has happened between 2015-11 and 2016-01.
15:34:23 <gamemanj> that sounds like one big revision
15:34:41 <b_jonas> The page is http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~uno/taocp.html
15:34:49 <gamemanj> wait, volume, so one big book
15:35:08 <b_jonas> And it doesn't have any prediction on when the revised volumes 1' to 3' are going to be ready.
15:36:35 <b_jonas> gamemanj: actually TAOCP is now sort of numbered wrong, since volume 4A is published, it's as thick as any of the first three volumes, but the topics professor Knuth originally wanted in volume 4 don't fit in it,
15:36:50 <gamemanj> you know, I highly suspect we may need to invent immortality...
15:36:52 <b_jonas> so he's splitting it to at least two volumes, so there'll be a volume 4B and possibly more.
15:37:06 <gamemanj> ...we definitely need to invent immortality...
15:37:19 <b_jonas> gamemanj: yes, or at least longevity. Knuth is definitely one of those people for whom it would be worth.
15:37:25 <Jafet> eventually volumes 6-7 will return to the original goal of describing compilers
15:37:52 -!- FireFly has changed nick to ffl.
15:37:56 <b_jonas> like, if I get my hands on very few doses of an extremely rare longevity serum, professor Knuth would be high on the list for who to give it.
15:37:59 <b_jonas> seriously.
15:38:07 <b_jonas> Jafet: or more likely no
15:38:37 <Jafet> it's ok, we'll learn in nine years that DEK was a collective pseudonym
15:38:42 <b_jonas> Jafet: Knuth's words on that is "And after Volumes 1--5 are done, God willing, I plan to publish Volume 6 (the theory of context-free languages) and Volume 7 (Compiler techniques), but only if the things I want to say about those topics are still relevant and still haven't been said. Volumes 1--5 represent the central core of computer programming for sequential machines; the subjects of Volumes 6 and 7 are important but more specialized."
15:38:51 <b_jonas> Jafet: sadly no
15:39:10 <b_jonas> he's a single genius mathematician
15:42:16 <Jafet> hmm, volume 5 will cover string algorithms
15:42:57 <Jafet> knuth may want to avoid unhealthy foods like pizza and chilli when writing that

17:08:47 <oerjan> i don't see what OKAY has to do with annoyance.

17:09:16 <oerjan> IF YOU SAY SO
17:09:32 <gamemanj> like, if I were to go on a long-ish lecture about ambiguity, and how it is a rather painful thing in the English language,
17:09:54 <gamemanj> and how, for example, it would be great if someone were to somehow remove the ambiguity in the English language while still keeping it English,
17:10:20 <gamemanj> or at least relatively so, then for example you could shout OKAY while I am busy typing this rant, however, you may not,
17:10:52 <\oren\> YAKO
17:11:02 <gamemanj> ...

21:21:26 <hppavilion[1]> I seem to remember reading about a cellular automaton that models how neighborhoods tend towards homogeneous race, even in a racism-free society
21:24:45 <hppavilion[1]> Something about how, even if you don't really care about race, if you're black and all of your neighbors are white or if you're white and all of your neighbors are black, you'll feel a bit out of place and be more likely to move away to a neighborhood with more people of the same race
21:25:16 <hppavilion[1]> And how that statistically results in self-segregated neighborhoods
21:25:22 <hppavilion[1]> But I can't remember the name of the model

22:02:54 <hppavilion[1]> Time loop logic is interesting
22:03:08 <hppavilion[1]> It could be used to solve NP problems in polynomial time
22:04:03 <hppavilion[1]> Basically, "receive answer from future. Check answer. If correct, send to past at end of 5 minutes. If incorrect, send different answer (Successor of the answer, perhaps)
22:04:34 <hppavilion[1]> If stable time loops are possible (and self-contradicting time loops are impossible), then this guarantees that you will always receive the correct answer in polynomial time
22:04:54 <wob_jonas> yay!
22:05:18 <myname> hppavilion[1]: have a look at p/poly
22:05:29 <wob_jonas> debugging successful
22:05:32 <myname> that's basically what you described
22:05:44 <hppavilion[1]> (Really, any problem that can be checked in O(k) can be solved in O(k) using a stable time loop; in fact, I think that you receive the answer in O(1) time, but you still have to check)
22:05:48 <myname> without time constraints, though
22:06:07 <myname> also, the esolang twoducks is related
22:06:16 <myname> it can even solve the halting problem
22:06:20 <hppavilion[1]> Yep

23:42:25 <oerjan> some other semitic or... hm, somali?

23:47:51 <oerjan> wat
23:48:48 <oerjan> well that looks mostly monosyllabic. chinese?
23:49:06 <oerjan> except adwo doesn't work.
23:49:29 <boily> far from any variation on Chinese.

23:54:31 <hppavilion[1]> While I am a fan of (or at least ambivalent to) emoji, they are not meant to be used as words, they are meant to be used to convey emotions (and, to a lesser extent, high-level ideas)
