00:12:30 <hppavilion[1]> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Chess_Championship_1975 confuses me...
00:12:39 <hppavilion[1]> Fischer wanted "first to win 10 games"
00:13:07 <hppavilion[1]> And in the event of 9-9 he wanted the current champion (which would be him) to keep the title
00:13:36 <hppavilion[1]> In the event of 9-9 in a "first to win 10" format, wouldn't the correct response be "play one more game, the winner is the overall winner"?
00:14:20 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, wait, I guess the rationale is that if the score is 9-9, the players are about evenly matched and the 10th game is pretty much decided by a coin toss...
00:14:54 * hppavilion[1] . o O ( How about "first to win 3 more games than the other has won?" (or some s/3/n/ for integer n)? )
00:15:59 <oerjan> that could in theory last forever
00:22:13 <fizzie> I vaguely recall that the expected value of the absolute distance after N steps of 1-d random walk is something non-constant, which I guess would mean it'd be increasingly unlikely to continue? (Of course you could presumably use that as an argument against any sort of constant difference N as well, since it'd mean exactly evenly matched participants would reach that disparity eventually.)
00:26:42 <oerjan> at least sqrt(n) disparity hth
00:27:12 <oerjan> (that may or may not be the right order)

00:33:59 <wob_jonas> zzo38: no, I think all LL(1) languages are LR(1). I could be wrong though.
00:34:24 <wob_jonas> I'm looking for a mechanical keyboard. Why does it seem like all good mechanical keyboards are horribly expensive?
00:36:21 -!- `^_^v has joined.
00:39:32 <oerjan> i'm pretty sure all LL(1) _languages_ are LR(1). not quite sure about _grammars_.
00:40:08 <wob_jonas> I want a clicky keyboard for home with 50 g force and 101/104 key US layout.
00:40:13 <oerjan> (for the first, an LL(1) recognizer is pretty obviously implementable as a deterministic pushdown automaton)
00:42:16 <wob_jonas> Seriously, they're horribly expensive.
00:42:21 <oerjan> well, an LR(1) grammar is one which needs only 1 token lookahead at the end of a production, while iirc an LL(1) grammar is one that needs only one token lookahead at the _beginning_ iirc. assuming that, it's pretty trivial for grammars too.
00:42:22 <wob_jonas> Why do they have to cost this much?
00:42:42 <oerjan> (to be sure that the production is chosen)
00:42:49 <wob_jonas> How did people even have keyboards for their computers back twenty or thirty years ago when mechanical keyboards were the norm?
00:43:12 <fizzie> It's the market in action hth
00:44:33 <fizzie> You can do other kinds of keyboards cheaper and satisfy the majority of people and so on and so forth.
00:45:07 <wob_jonas> Yeah, but still, fuck them.
00:47:13 <zzo38> I like the IBM Model F keyboard

00:49:56 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Your addiction to swatting indicates deeper issues, and that you're a broken human being worth less than fertilizer
00:52:11 <oerjan> i don't find your putdown as deterministic as my swatter hth
00:56:53 <hppavilion[1]> Huh
00:57:17 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: I don't think CS has a concept of /how/ deterministic something is; only whether or not it is
00:57:39 <hppavilion[1]> Apparently Bobby Fischer was an anti-semitic asshole (also a holocaust denier)
00:57:43 <oerjan> shocking

01:06:18 <hppavilion[1]> I needed a joke and that was the best I could come up with.

01:09:37 <oerjan> mm, snopes
01:11:05 <oerjan> (wait, does this count as ancient crap, argh)
01:11:40 <wob_jonas> Done. I've ordered a mechanical keyboard.
01:12:24 <wob_jonas> I'm not downloading it. It will get here the slow way, on legs.
01:12:40 <wob_jonas> Takes some time because it has to go around the globe, and not even in a straight line.
01:13:06 <wob_jonas> (Can't withstand the pressures deep inside Earth.)
01:13:25 <oerjan> do the legs at least not have to swim
01:13:49 <wob_jonas> oerjan: I think it can take a ship or something
01:14:00 <oerjan> but that's cheating!
01:14:28 <wob_jonas> Not if it's only a small part of the route, I think.
01:15:16 <wob_jonas> But maybe it doesn't even need a ship, and can come through all land the long way.
01:15:26 <wob_jonas> I don't really know.
01:15:53 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Ha!
01:16:23 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Was it made in USA?
01:17:04 <wob_jonas> wob_jonas: I don't think so. It's shipping from Hong Kong, and probably made there.
01:17:12 <wob_jonas> I'm not really sure where these things are made really.
01:20:29 <hppavilion[1]> TIL "Philippines" is spelled with a 'ph' and "Filipino" is spelled with an 'f'
01:20:32 <hppavilion[1]> WTF
01:22:32 <sirnaysayer> and they speak Tagalog
01:22:37 <sirnaysayer> and Cebuano
01:25:27 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: well in norwegian, they're both spelled with F hth
01:25:46 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: PLEASE LET ME JOIN YOU
01:26:51 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: you'll probably need a work permit for that hth
01:27:09 <hppavilion[1]> Yeah, probably
01:27:10 <oerjan> or possibly, you could find a norwegian to marry.
01:27:59 <oerjan> i suspect you're unlikely to be granted political asylym, anyway.
01:31:31 <hppavilion[1]> Most likely scenario is a Trump presidency, which in the event of I'm genuinely considering leaving the country
01:31:41 <hppavilion[1]> Even though it makes me a walking cliche
01:35:53 <oerjan> even with a trump presidency, political asylum may not be automatic hth
01:37:01 <wob_jonas> hpp: leave to where?
01:37:16 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Well yeah, it wouldn't
01:37:30 <hppavilion[1]> And Norway wasn't high on the list of destinations
01:37:33 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Not sure yet
01:37:39 <oerjan> WAT
01:37:47 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: It's not top 5
01:38:12 <oerjan> *PUT
01:38:34 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: It's a great country, but it isn't primarily english-speaking
01:38:37 <hppavilion[1]> (AFAIK)
01:38:43 <wob_jonas> oerjan: Norway is nice, I visited in August
01:38:59 <wob_jonas> hpp: what? Norway is as good as English speaking. most people there speak English, you can get by with English.
01:39:14 <wob_jonas> and besides, if you already know English, then Norwegian isn't that hard to learn
01:39:14 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Oh?
01:39:15 <alercah> my roommate and I are experimentingn with canadian banking regulations
01:39:29 <alercah> I wrote him my rent cheque on the inside flap of a macaroni carton in sharpie
01:39:56 <hppavilion[1]> alercah: Are the Canadian bank rules that you don't have to write cheques on the official paper?
01:40:00 <wob_jonas> oerjan: did you really remain the only Norwegian regular in the channel?
01:40:09 <hppavilion[1]> (And does this extend to checks as well?)
01:40:39 <oerjan> wob_jonas: there was another recently, but e hasn't been active enough for me to remember who it was...
01:40:50 <hppavilion[1]> ...wtf is 'finnmark
01:40:52 <hppavilion[1]> '
01:40:54 <oerjan> maybe e left again
01:41:10 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: it's our northernmost county (excluding svalbard)
01:41:20 <hppavilion[1]> I mean, it's Finland+Denmark... but it's in Norway...
01:41:23 <wob_jonas> .oO( minpoijjikop isn't a regular )
01:41:40 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Where's Trønnes?
01:41:54 <hppavilion[1]> (It's a town, from what I've been told)
01:42:15 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: funny, we also had an episode in the channel a few years ago when someone found out about the name Finnmark (possibly from me) and was amazed by it
01:42:26 <hppavilion[1]> Huh
01:42:30 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: never heard of that town
01:42:40 <hppavilion[1]> Maybe I'm stuck in a CTlL?
01:43:09 <oerjan> it's in Hedmark, in the south of the country.
01:43:12 <wob_jonas> Ah, apparently Finnmark is a county within Norway
01:43:20 <alercah> hppavilion[1]: yes, as I understand them, you can write a cheque on anything so long as it contains the requisite information
01:43:21 <oerjan> wob_jonas: I SAID THAT
01:43:41 <hppavilion[1]> (it also might not be big enough that anybody knows, the same way I've never heard of Arnold, Nebraska)
01:43:48 <wob_jonas> yeah, you did, sorry
01:44:07 <wob_jonas> hpp: or maybe it's so far to the north that nobody goes there
01:46:25 <hppavilion[1]> Hm, Google Maps only knows about one in... Meraker? I assume that's a Norwegian county?
01:46:57 <wob_jonas> It would be nice to know for me too which places within Europe are good for living and working in case I want to leave.
01:47:07 <wob_jonas> But I don't know much about that.
01:47:10 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: btw the Finn in Finnmark is the same word as Fin in Finland. afaik (1) there may be some finnish-norwegians ("kvener") there (2) people probably didn't consider the distinction between Finnish and Sami that important back then
01:47:31 <hppavilion[1]> Ah
01:48:18 -!- Moonythedwarf has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds).
01:49:29 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: btw Trønnes is a "grend", which is very small, so more a village than a town.
01:49:42 <hppavilion[1]> Ah
01:50:46 <hppavilion[1]> (not really sure where any of the boundaries are... in my mind, village/town and town/city are interchangeable, and at the same time "city" can describe pretty much anything)
01:51:28 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: Meråker is a municipality. it's part of Nord-Trøndelag county.
01:51:54 <hppavilion[1]> Ok...
01:52:14 <hppavilion[1]> Is fnord in Nord, or vice versa? /s
01:52:49 <oerjan> btw the Trønnes i found (on norwegian wikipedia) is not there. it apparently has the distinction of being the first place in norway to get a home for the elderly.
01:53:02 <hppavilion[1]> OK...
01:53:33 <wob_jonas> hpp: Norway has fjords, not fnords
01:53:42 <wob_jonas> I've seen them
01:53:47 <wob_jonas> I haven't seen any fnords
01:53:52 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: I was under the impression a fnord is a co-fjord
01:54:00 <oerjan> well no one expects you to see the fnords
01:54:03 <hppavilion[1]> My browser abbreviates titles when I have too many tabs, and it abbreviated "Grandmaster (chess) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" to "Grandma". I can't complain.
01:54:11 <hppavilion[1]> OOOOOOOH
01:54:21 <hppavilion[1]> How deep does afnordnia typically go?
01:54:42 <wob_jonas> fungot, do you like Norway?
01:54:42 <fungot> wob_jonas: guile was covered a few minutes
01:54:44 <oerjan> i don't know, never heard of ania before.
01:55:26 <hppavilion[1]> Will your brain rearrange things to fill in the gap (so if you have a page where a different word on each line, and one of the words is "fnord", will you see a blank line or will all the later words move down?)
01:55:31 <hppavilion[1]> s/down/up/
01:55:34 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: i think that according to some, a city needs to contain a cathedral hth
01:55:42 <hppavilion[1]> That works, I suppose
01:55:45 <hppavilion[1]> What's bigger than a city?
01:55:52 <oerjan> anyway, Trønnes in Hedmark has only about 100 families
01:56:00 <wob_jonas> hpp: a metropolis
01:56:10 -!- FreeFull has joined.
01:56:24 <hppavilion[1]> And above that?
01:56:28 <hppavilion[1]> Probably a megalopolis
01:56:32 <hppavilion[1]> Then a gigalopolis
01:56:46 <hppavilion[1]> (Can we define a gigalopolis as 1000000000 or more individuals?)
01:56:48 <wob_jonas> hpp: or a city-planet like Corouscant or Trantor or Ravnica
01:56:54 <hppavilion[1]> Perhaps
01:57:10 -!- sebbu has quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds).
01:58:41 <wob_jonas> So anyway, keyboard is ordered, but I'll also have to buy a new computer. I'll have to choose a motherboard and stuff.
01:59:00 <oerjan> then there's dyson spheres, i guess
01:59:49 <oerjan> and beyond that it seems a bit hard to get a continuous city. well, not that it's easy with a dyson sphere, i think those aren't actually realistically solid?
02:00:08 <oerjan> a ringworld, maybe.
02:00:27 <wob_jonas> oerjan: Trantor isn't realistic either

02:17:22 <hppavilion[1]> wait, I did something wrong...
02:18:06 <hppavilion[1]> Ha!
02:18:12 <hppavilion[1]> Wiktionary includes "ginormous"
02:18:30 <oerjan> well, it's a very cromulent word.
02:19:04 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: I think a lot of people don't like it
02:19:26 <oerjan> OKAY
02:19:54 <hppavilion[1]> (but it says comparative is "more ginormous" and superlative is "most ginormous", when it would correctly be "ginormouser" and "ginormousest")
02:19:59 <\oren\> I tought it was spelled gynormous
02:20:01 <wob_jonas> oerjan: no, I think terato is right. I think it's greek for monster-like, and related to the same word the metric prefix tera comes from
02:20:34 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: No, that's a domain-specific thing used by OB/GYNs
02:21:15 <hppavilion[1]> (Also, why doesn't English include the opposite of -er and -est for "more" and "most"? Something to say "less" and "least"?)
02:21:24 <hppavilion[1]> (It MUST have historically at some point...)
02:22:35 <oerjan> <hppavilion[1]> What's "mg"? <-- velarized m, maybe?
02:22:47 <hppavilion[1]> I would think so
02:23:18 <oerjan> of course, n can also be velarized, which seems confusing.
02:23:21 <wob_jonas> oerjan: I don't think a velarized m makes sense
02:23:42 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, IPA uses a ɱ
02:24:50 <wob_jonas> hpp: ɱ in IPA is not a velarized m
02:24:58 <oerjan> wob_jonas: oh, because m doesn't use the tongue to start with? but m can be palatalized...
02:25:08 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Yeah, that's the problem
02:25:31 <hppavilion[1]> So it looks like English n is the alveolar nasal
02:25:40 <oerjan> i'm not really good at distinguish velarization for anything but l, anyway.
02:25:58 <wob_jonas> hpp: [ɱ] in IPA is the the nasal stop version articulated at the same place as f, which you get from some speakers when they pronounce nf or mf
02:26:06 <hppavilion[1]> (God sounds are fun)
02:26:10 <hppavilion[1]> And ŋ is the velar nasal
02:26:22 <hppavilion[1]> So if m is the labiodental nasal...
02:26:38 <wob_jonas> hpp: no, it's not
02:26:48 <wob_jonas> [ɱ] is the labiodental nasal
02:26:50 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, no it isn't
02:26:51 <hppavilion[1]> Right
02:26:54 <hppavilion[1]> I got my tabs confused
02:26:58 <oerjan> wob_jonas: most likely terastios is also related to the same word, so...
02:27:04 <hppavilion[1]> If m is the bilabial nasal
02:27:19 <wob_jonas> called "labiodental" because it's made with your upper teeth pressed to your lower lips, and "labio" means lips and "dent" means teeth
02:27:27 <hppavilion[1]> yeah
02:27:30 <hppavilion[1]> I'm figuring it out
02:27:30 <wob_jonas> the names there actually make sense
02:27:40 <hppavilion[1]> Yeah, they do
02:28:07 <hppavilion[1]> 'm' is the bilabial nasal because your lips are pushed together (in the exaggerated version you're taught in preschool)
02:28:11 <hppavilion[1]> And, y'know, it's nasal
02:28:15 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: long words in english don't usually take -er and -est comparatives. hth.
02:28:39 -!- `^_^v has quit (Quit: This computer has gone to sleep).
02:28:45 <wob_jonas> these are easy to understand because they ([m], [f], [T]) are the three common places of articulation that you can actually see easily from lip-reading ([m] only when not at the start of a word)
02:28:47 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: English is my L1. I think I know the rules. hth.
02:28:56 <hppavilion[1]> Then... I have no idea what the equivalent of ng is for m
02:29:05 <wob_jonas> the other stuff is in your mouth, so you like need X-ray to understand them
02:29:15 <wob_jonas> X-ray has been done of course, but it's not something you see every day
02:29:25 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Or a mouth
02:29:34 <oerjan> <hppavilion[1]> (It MUST have historically at some point...) <-- well norwegian doesn't, and i don't remember any indoeuropean language i've seen doing so.
02:29:39 <wob_jonas> hpp: a what?
02:29:52 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: A mou... you're messing with me
02:30:01 <wob_jonas> I mean
02:30:04 <wob_jonas> what with a mouth?
02:30:12 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: You need x-ray OR a mouth
02:30:38 <hppavilion[1]> You can understand stuff without x-ray if you just pay attention to your mouth
02:31:56 <wob_jonas> nah
02:32:31 <oerjan> wob_jonas: hppavilion[1]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_phonology#Consonants has velarized mˠ
02:34:13 <wob_jonas> oerjan: ok
02:36:13 <Phantom__Hoover> i was reading about velarised m recently because it finally answered my long-running mystery of why mh is pronounced /v/ some of the time and /w/ others
02:38:18 -!- wob_jonas has quit (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client).
02:38:23 <oerjan> argh irish distinguishes nʲ and ɲ
02:39:01 <hppavilion[1]> Wait...
02:39:16 <hppavilion[1]> I can't see the difference between the m in 'symphony' and the m in 'rum'
02:39:45 <Phantom__Hoover> your teeth touch your lips in the former
02:39:57 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom__Hoover: OH!
02:40:00 <hppavilion[1]> Huh
02:40:06 <Phantom__Hoover> depends a bit on dialect and personal variation i guess
02:40:33 <hppavilion[1]> (Also, I was discussing that there's apparently a difference with my mother. She asked why there were labia in my nose. I had to explain the root to her.)
02:42:54 <oerjan> also distinguishes n̪ˠ from ŋ
02:45:02 <oerjan> Phantom__Hoover: oh so the mh in your name is pronounced like w?
02:45:05 <hppavilion[1]> Well I just tried to velarize m...
02:45:08 <hppavilion[1]> It's horrifying
02:45:15 <Phantom__Hoover> oerjan, no it's silent
02:46:32 <oerjan> oh.
02:48:53 <oerjan> oh right, omh refers to another table
02:50:18 -!- `^_^v has joined.
02:51:29 <hppavilion[1]> Is there a name for the velarized m? "velar bilabial nasal" didn't turn up anything
02:51:35 <oerjan> iiuc it lengthens the o
02:51:53 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: velar and velarized are not the same thing
02:52:36 <hppavilion[1]> ...oh?
02:52:40 <hppavilion[1]> WTF IPA
02:52:41 <hppavilion[1]> WTF
02:52:55 <oerjan> however, i don't think wikipedia has articles for all combinations with velarized... it's an adjustment you can apply to many consonants.
02:53:05 <oerjan> see the velarization article
02:53:17 <hppavilion[1]> OK
02:53:34 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: velar is primary articulation, but velarized means a secondary articulation in _addition_ to the primary one.
02:54:01 -!- Phantom__Hoover has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
02:54:03 <oerjan> same for palatal and palatalized
02:55:01 <hppavilion[1]> (also, is there any relation between n and h, or is it just similar symbols?)
02:55:14 <hppavilion[1]> (looks like no relation.)
02:55:44 <oerjan> they're presumably both inherited from the phoenician alphabet
02:56:05 <hppavilion[1]> But no relation in sounds?
02:57:29 <oerjan> n from Nun. apparently it descends from the egyptian symbol for snake, "djet", and was used for a sound like english J there
02:58:11 <oerjan> (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N)
02:58:48 <oerjan> h from Heth, via greek Heta before that lost the H
02:59:17 <oerjan> i see, that explains why eta looks like H
02:59:21 -!- `^_^v has quit (Quit: This computer has gone to sleep).
02:59:41 <oerjan> "The original Semitic letter Heth most likely represented the voiceless pharyngeal fricative (ħ). The form of the letter probably stood for a fence or posts."
02:59:49 <oerjan> anyway, those articles say more.
03:01:48 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: anyway, n is pretty far from h in sound, and always has been.
03:02:04 <hppavilion[1]> Yeah
03:02:48 <oerjan> unlike U,V,W and Y, which all descend from the same letter hth
03:04:06 <oerjan> oh, and apparently F too
03:05:59 <oerjan> first greek adapted F into a vowel Y, then latin got F with the original sound, borrowed greek Y as V, then borrowed it _again_ as Y, and then created U to distinguish when V was a vowel.
03:06:37 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: ſ looks too much like it's supposed to be esh
03:06:43 <hppavilion[1]> (ʃ)
03:06:53 <hppavilion[1]> (or Ʃ if using uppercase)
03:06:56 <oerjan> and then someone created W from V, i guess.
03:11:26 <oerjan> actually greek had both F and Y, but lost the w sound that the former represented.
03:11:47 <oerjan> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F#History
03:14:06 <hppavilion[1]> I was just looking for something similar to k, but without the sudden stop
03:14:20 <hppavilion[1]> And I wound up in Germany with the voiceless velar fricative

14:36:29 <wob_jonas> Oh man, they REALLY made this stuff watertight.
14:37:20 <wob_jonas> So if I buy stuff on PayPal, then I must pay PayPal's currency conversion fees, which are way higher than the currency conversion I can get from my bank. But there's no way to actually use the cheaper fees at the bank:
14:39:34 <wob_jonas> I can transfer money from my bank to PayPal, but if I transfer anything but HUF, then I have to pay the international bank transfer fee, even if I'm transferring from my domestic foreign currency account to Paypal's domestic account, and that fee has a high fixed minimum regardless the amount.
14:39:53 <alercah> yup
14:40:07 <alercah> for a while I maintained a USD credit card for that exact reason
14:40:20 <alercah> but nowadays I don't buy through paypal often enough for it to matter
14:41:08 <wob_jonas> Or I can pay from a bank card with PayPal, but then they charge the card in the native currency of the bank card, and I can't cheaply have extra bank cards in multiple currencies, even though I totally can have _accounts_ in those currencies, for the extra cards are either inpossible or have a high monthlyfee.
14:42:13 <wob_jonas> I could save on the costs only if I transferred a large amount of money to PayPal at a single time, but for that I'd have to predict the currency I'm going to buy stuff on PayPal, and that's quite unpredictable:
14:42:26 <Cale> Yeah, all my income goes through PayPal right now, and that conversion business is kind of annoying.
14:42:41 <wob_jonas> People sell things on PayPal in USD or CAD (from Asia or America) and in GBP or EUR (from Europe).

14:52:51 <Taneb> Alternatively, you could try having a really vivid imagination
14:53:01 <izabera> i don't even d&d
14:54:25 <wob_jonas> Oh, and the extra problem is, I'm not even sure I can actually transfer currencies other than HUF to PayPal. They only give a single bank account number for transfer, and I'm not sure it's possible for a single account number to receive multiple currencies. I called their customer support,
14:54:57 <wob_jonas> and the lady said I probably can transfer other currencies, but she's not sure, and I should try. And to try, I have to pay the expensive bank transfer fee regardless the amount.
14:56:36 <wob_jonas> Incidentally, calling their customer support on phone is an international call, which also costs a shitton.

21:58:08 <shachaf> Taneb: Is that true? You invented locales?
21:58:13 <shachaf> Taneb: Did you invent pointless topology?
21:58:59 <Taneb> shachaf, locales I invented, but only locally
21:59:57 <Taneb> And I never really saw the point in topology
21:59:58 <shachaf> Taneb: Are you guilty of inventing frames?
22:00:10 <Taneb> No, someone set me up on that one
22:00:37 <shachaf> `? frame
22:00:38 <HackEgo> A frame is just a complete Heyting algebra. Frame homomorphisms don't preserve implication, if you know what I mean.
22:01:47 <Taneb> I don't like what you're implying there
22:03:37 <shachaf> Who?
22:10:38 <zzo38> HSTS is terrible but I can propose a better way: There is a menu that the user can set up arbitrary URI rewriting, and one option can set whether or not automatically adding rules is allowed (disabled by default). If automatically adding rules is allowed by the user setting, then the Strict-Transport-Security header can be used to automatically add/remove rules in this menu, except for rules which the user has locked.
22:12:18 <zzo38> Reporting of errors should not be done, and the user can always override the error; a setting may be provided to only enable the override after a specified number of milliseconds (something that Firefox does with download dialog boxes currently).
22:13:48 <zzo38> The setting for HPKP should be separate, and if enabled, then when there is error the user should be given the options: "Bypass", "New Context", "Change Settings", "Edit HPKP Data", "View Report", "Send Report".

22:24:01 <\oren\> whoops, wrong channel
22:24:22 <Taneb> zzo38, a treap is a purely functional data structure (I am writing this in Haskell) that is a binary tree that is heap ordered by one key and tree ordered by another
22:25:16 <Taneb> I am not sure if insert should clobber other entries with the same tree-ordering key

23:17:00 <_46bit> :D
23:18:17 <izabera> o.o
23:18:33 <izabera> you wrote an irc client in ftp?
23:18:53 <izabera> that... sounds weird
23:19:05 <fizzie> FTP is pretty weird.
23:19:08 <Taneb> izabera, didn't you write a compiler in Bash
23:19:23 <izabera> well yes but it compiles brainfuck to bash
23:19:30 <izabera> and does several optimizations
23:19:46 <izabera> not that hard, optimizations aside
23:20:40 <Taneb> I still need to implement the fancy brainfuck optimization thingy I thought up to see if it actually works
23:20:50 <izabera> do tell
23:21:52 <fizzie> You can use FTP from client C to transfer files from server A to server B without passing through C (and without collecting $200).
23:21:56 <Taneb> I mentioned it a while back, I think, basically stuff like [->+++>++>-<<] can be turned into b += a * 3; c += a * 2; d -= a; a = 0
23:22:00 -!- Sgeo has joined.
23:22:09 <Taneb> And then extending that to nested loops
23:22:33 <izabera> yeah mine does that but nesting isn't too trivial
23:22:47 <Taneb> Which in some circumstances become quadratics, etc
23:23:37 <_46bit> I was sending commands to an FTP server that made it use an IRC server as a place to send the contents of a file to.
23:23:49 <_46bit> (That's skipping a lot of detail, but I hope it condenses things enough.)
23:24:05 <fizzie> Did you succeed, though?
23:24:23 <_46bit> Sadly one server I tried requires replying to "PING a_new_value" with "PONG a_new_value"
23:24:31 <fizzie> Yes, I've heard they do that.
23:24:46 <_46bit> I can't do that because I'd need to know a_new_value when constructing the payload to send to the FTP server.
23:25:04 <fizzie> Makes sense, since that's exactly why they do that.
23:25:07 <fizzie> I don't think Freenode's does, though.
23:25:47 <_46bit> Freenode did something different. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't join channels here.
23:26:12 <_46bit> I could set a nick, and see that freenode thought I was connected, but the FTP server couldn't actually join a channel.
23:26:22 <_46bit> Whereas running it myself using netcat did work.
23:26:36 <_46bit> It's something I hope Taneb might help me play with when he's back.
