00:59:55 <zzo38> http://www.dwheeler.com/trusting-trust/dissertation/html/wheeler-trusting-trust-ddc.html I look at this a bit (haven't read it entirely, yet), and actually even before looking at that document and hearing/reading the issues involved, I have thought of other ways.

01:03:29 <Zarutian> zzo38: well another way is to do an Initial Program Load by hand and load in a Forth. Then use that to load a small C compiler written in Forth. Then use that C compiler to compile a bigger one.

03:54:28 * moonythedwarf grabs the 4D scissors again
03:55:26 <\oren\> hppavilion[1]: that would I guess be a film where people are actively taking money from you because you're making it
03:55:50 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: Yeah?
03:56:01 <hppavilion[1]> Though you could also make profit via negative remuneration

04:08:06 <shachaf> \oren\: a budget is how much you spend, not how much people give you, i think
04:08:26 <shachaf> so it's a movie where people give you money to make it. seems reasonable.

04:29:39 <FireFly> Yup

04:31:42 <shachaf> Congrefly

04:32:51 <FireFly> nice regex, that

04:33:18 <FireFly> Yes, but deceivingly using f as the separator
04:33:23 <shachaf> i guess freenode decided to HireFly
04:33:39 <FireFly> I guess so
04:34:28 <FireFly> Hmm
04:35:27 <shachaf> i'm guessing they're not paying you, though
04:37:53 <shachaf> zzo38: Would "Bands with Other Bandits" be a good ability?
04:38:30 <FireFly> yeah, it's just volunteer stuff I guess
04:38:36 <shachaf> i would HireFly at that price
04:38:54 <alercah> what do you do?
04:39:49 <shachaf> Who, me?
04:39:53 <FireFly> bit of everything, though most of it is "support"-style stuff

04:48:00 <HackEgo> FireFly was a short-running but well-loved sci-fi TV series released in 2003, starring Nathan Fillion and directed and written by Joss Whedon.
04:48:08 <shachaf> can't argue with that
05:05:19 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
05:06:52 <oerjan> . o O ( this is a fiendish plot to avoid my swattings )
05:07:18 <shachaf> What is?
05:07:43 <oerjan> shachaf: getting staffed hth
05:08:03 <shachaf> Wait, getting staffed lets you avoid swatting?
05:08:20 <shachaf> Hmm, FireFly is an op in here now.
05:10:30 <oerjan> wait, is he
05:10:51 <shachaf> 5 freenode-staff +AFRefiorstv [modified 4y 11w 2d ago]
05:11:30 <oerjan> does that really work?
05:11:36 -!- augur has joined.
05:11:37 <shachaf> Does it not work?
05:11:40 <shachaf> If not, why is it in there?
05:11:46 <oerjan> well it's not his account name is it
05:12:13 <shachaf> Oh, I figured it was special somehow.
05:12:14 <oerjan> shachaf: because of freenode's policy of putting lapsed founderships there
05:12:24 <oerjan> it's been there for a long time
05:12:37 <oerjan> since andreou got deregistered, maybe
05:14:18 <oerjan> (note the F flag)
05:14:59 <oerjan> of course, i don't know what powers arbitrary staff has
05:15:22 <oerjan> perhaps he can just tell chanserv to op him anywhere
05:16:01 <shachaf> Maybe he can do that but he isn't supposed to unless a channel has freenode-staff in the op list.
05:16:11 <oerjan> WELL
05:16:28 <oerjan> i'm skeptical that it matters.
05:16:46 <shachaf> maybe you should swat him and see what happens hth
05:16:59 <shachaf> what do you think about fft
05:17:22 <oerjan> it's fast, it's furry, it's transformational.
05:17:29 <oerjan> was i close?
05:17:31 <shachaf> fancy fourier transform
05:17:39 <shachaf> pretty close
05:17:59 <shachaf> I went to conal's talk about it the other day: http://conal.net/talks/generic-fft.pdf
05:18:14 <oerjan> okay
05:18:28 <shachaf> It's a neat trick.
05:18:37 <shachaf> But maybe I don't fully understand it.
05:19:04 * oerjan doesn't really know what the trick is, he just knows fourier transforms in general. and has forgotten most of the proof details.
05:19:14 <shachaf> What do you do if you want to do FFT of a prime size?
05:19:36 <oerjan> work in Z/(pZ)
05:20:00 <oerjan> fourier transforms work in any locally compact abelian group.
05:20:25 <shachaf> oerjan: The trick seems to be that if you do an FFT of size N*M, you can do a nested FFT of size M and N.
05:20:32 <shachaf> But a bunch of things cancel out so you can do less work.
05:20:37 <oerjan> ...ok
05:20:48 <shachaf> Or something.
05:21:03 <oerjan> well that's just taking product of groups
05:21:18 <oerjan> assuming M and N are relatively prime
05:21:37 <shachaf> It works for any M and N.
05:21:46 <shachaf> Though there's a special version that uses relatively prime M and N.
05:21:52 <oerjan> aha
05:21:58 <shachaf> But often people use a power of 2, and one of M or N is 2.
05:23:09 <shachaf> s-or-and-
05:23:33 <zzo38> shachaf: There is no "Bandit" subtype I think?
05:23:42 <shachaf> zzo38: That's true, but there is a Bandit card.
05:23:47 <shachaf> So they could probably add the subtype.
05:23:56 <zzo38> If such a subtype is added, then, possibly (if the card to surround might help)
05:24:12 <shachaf> Or they could add a Bandit supertype.
05:24:52 <zzo38> Neither seems needed to me actually
05:25:06 <shachaf> I guess they could just add a Bandit type, in that case.
05:25:19 <zzo38> That also doesn't seem right
05:25:30 <zzo38> Subtype would be best if they were to add it at all.
05:28:20 <zzo38> Other kind of idea can be "bands with other creatures with bands with other"
05:40:45 <zzo38> Another thing to write might be "Whenever an object is countered, put a +1/+1 counter on ~."
05:55:31 <zzo38> Please review this code tell me if you see anything wrong or whatever else http://zzo38computer.org/fossil/tavern.ui/artifact/890c961cedf74de7

06:05:31 <shachaf> Why do you use Fossil?
06:06:16 <zzo38> It is better than Git
06:08:09 <shachaf> How?
06:27:24 <zzo38> The program is a single file and the commands are simpler too, and it work better for "cathedral" style project, and it is just better the way I work

06:49:32 <zzo38> I did find a list of what disadvantages people mentioned about Fossil, but it is from six years ago, some of the things mentioned there are no longer true, and some are actually advantages to me. Specifically, the ticketing system using SQL is good, and lacking a rich text editor is also good. "The lack of deleting anything" and "No versioning of Fossil itself" are mentioned, but are no longer true.
