00:05:21 <boily> yes, every time I stumble upon that quote I'm like: «comment ai-je pu oublier la distribution normale...»

01:11:07 <HackEgo> Learned 'theseus': Theseus was a Greek inventor who was charged with impossible-to-detect murder. He was represented by Protagoras and found not guilty. He changed his name to escape the publicity and has continued inventing to this day.
01:11:09 <moonythedwarf> ah
01:11:15 <moonythedwarf> makes sense
01:11:32 <imode> I already have the whole language spec'd out and can write programs in it, but I'm wanting to specify it without english.
01:11:37 <imode> so rewrite rules are reasonable.
01:11:42 <moonythedwarf> what are some of the other commands?
01:12:21 <imode> the language has 32 commands, each of which are single characters. the whole command set is ?;[],`'+-*/%&|~^()<>=!@${}.:#_\"

01:12:44 <hppavilion[1]> boily: Look at the new wisdom :D
01:12:58 <imode> the language is stack based. or, if you wanna get fancier, the language is concatenative.
01:13:13 <moonythedwarf> imode, sounds neat
01:13:23 <imode> [] is equivalent to while(1){}. ; is equivalent to break;. ? is equivalent to if(stack[top] == 0) {break;}
01:13:24 <moonythedwarf> if you implet it let me know

01:13:42 <imode> heh, I will. I have a half-baked interpreter right now but it's very trivial to translate into C or Forth to get an actual result.
01:13:55 <imode> you can write an interpreter in a day.
01:13:59 <imode> probably an hour or two.
01:14:03 <moonythedwarf> translation is also good :p

01:41:13 <pikhq> So. Gen VI is the first gen without a third game (or equivalent) in it...
01:41:31 <pikhq> Game Freak implied they were doing something weird with it that time 'round.
01:41:43 <pikhq> I wonder if that "something weird" is a game in the next gen.
01:50:31 <ais523> well, Emerald didn't follow Ruby and Sapphire chronologically
01:55:01 <ais523> I can see why gen VI doesn't have a third game, though, the first two weren't very good :-(
01:55:47 <imode> wat?
01:56:02 <imode> gen 6 is alpha sapphire and omega ruby.
01:56:23 <imode> kind of. I guess.
01:56:50 <imode> I think the world forgot about X and Y.
02:00:15 <ais523> like, the only thing XY do better than the previous games is dressing up (it also does this better than future games), and the multiple regional pokédexes thing
02:00:23 <ais523> everything else is either the same or worse
02:01:41 <imode> it was just boring to me.
02:02:03 <ais523> that's because the difficulty level is too low to make the battle interesting, and its plot is badly designed too
02:02:20 <ais523> so you don't get much enjoyment from the story either
02:02:45 <imode> it wasn't the difficulty or the plot for me, it was the fact that there was just too much... walking.
02:02:59 <ais523> well you get rollerskates fairly early
02:03:08 <imode> yeah but they continually compensate for that.
02:03:09 <ais523> but you probably get the bicycle too late
02:03:23 <imode> like. after you get the rollerskates, everything just seems like it takes way too long.
02:03:46 <imode> and there's a lot of stuff that the game kinda wants you to do but you don't have to do.
02:03:50 <ais523> it's partly because the game's very linear but nonetheless requires backtracking
02:03:51 <imode> like that stupid glamor shot thing.
02:03:58 <imode> or trainer video or something.
02:04:27 <ais523> in the earlier Pokémon games, you had a lot of freedom of where to go after a bit; that means you spend much of your time exploring rather than running around
02:04:31 <imode> it took way too long to get from A to B. compare that to RSE where nearly every path was the same regardless of your mode of transportation.
02:04:32 <ais523> and you have flexibility to choose a better route
02:04:58 <ais523> in the later games (BW onwards, although DPP was starting to get that way) the routes are set
02:05:11 <ais523> and the only choice is whether to skip or do optional dungeons
02:05:25 <imode> they're going with the "how long can we make this game" approach.
02:05:42 <hppavilion[1]> How DOES one viginere encrypt a message containing diacritics when the diacritics are not considered to produce distinct letters?
02:05:42 <ais523> well, having a lot of gameplay is good, but having a lot of filler is bad
02:06:10 <imode> it was just filler... every location seemed to have a purpose in RSE and earlier games.
02:06:14 <imode> like, physical locations made sense.
02:06:19 <imode> but what the fuck is the reflection cave.
02:06:31 <ais523> RSE has scorched slab
02:07:21 <ais523> but it's completely insignificant and IIRC nothing makes you go there
02:07:32 <imode> yeah.
02:08:02 <imode> I think the 2D aspect of pokemon makes me like it.
02:08:10 <imode> everything's a bunch of tiles.
02:08:13 <ais523> actually I think later games have cared too much about being visually interesting than interesting from an activity point of view
02:08:18 <ais523> compare the gyms in RSE to those in XY
02:08:28 <imode> some of the RSE gyms are mindbenders.
02:08:41 <ais523> XY's gyms are nearly always "go from place to place fighting trainers"; there's no real puzzle there, just pretty things to look at
02:08:46 <imode> played the fortree one on a trip. took me maybe 15 minutes.
02:09:01 <ais523> whereas RSE's are all puzzles that would fit in puzzle collections; they're fairly easy by those standards but they definitely require thought to solve
02:10:08 <ais523> actually I'm disappointed that the trick house isn't infinitely refreshing
02:10:11 <imode> plus, I'm not gonna lie, RSE and earlier were visually interesting because of their perspective.
02:10:17 <ais523> even if it looped, rather than being procedurally generated, that'd be better
02:10:37 <ais523> than the current "X puzzles then it stops"
02:10:56 <pikhq> I enjoyed XY, but it definitely was missing stuff.
02:11:16 <pikhq> I think they were focusing on the engine to the exclusion of the game.
02:11:33 <ais523> another thing I dislike in XY is the art style
02:11:33 <pikhq> ORAS would indicate that, because it was definitely more fleshed out.
02:11:57 <ais523> and yes, ORAS is clearly better than XY
02:12:29 <pikhq> And the director of that is doing SUMO, which is promising.
02:12:42 <imode> what exactly would you call that perspective for RGBYRSE.
02:12:57 <imode> like, the visual perspective.
02:13:33 <pikhq> The established name for it is three-quarters perspective.
02:13:36 <ais523> it definitely has a name, I just can't remember what it is
02:13:36 <ais523> I think it has "half" in it somewhere
02:13:45 <imode> 3/4ths is somewhere close, but it's...
02:13:52 <ais523> ah right, that makes sense
02:13:52 <ais523> I got the wrong fraction
02:13:57 <imode> that's not exactly correct, though.
02:14:08 <imode> y and z are not bound to eachother.
02:14:29 <imode> trying to find a good example image.
02:14:55 <ais523> the perspective in RSE maps y and z to the same onscreen axis, doesn't it? and z is the other
02:15:08 <imode> you would think, but no.
02:15:19 <imode> imagine the RSE maps as a heightmap.
02:15:27 <imode> hold on, posting an image.
02:15:32 <pikhq> The main weird thing with that perspective in games is that sprites don't match the perspective.
02:17:32 <ais523> in gen 4 and particularly 5 it's even worse, because the world is 3d but the sprites are 2d
02:17:40 <imode> https://ptpb.pw/JPSE
02:17:46 <ais523> that works in paper mario but not really in Pokémon
02:17:51 <imode> so, here's how mountains and stuff looks.
02:18:00 <imode> (note: this is my mockup.)
02:18:16 <imode> https://ptpb.pw/DnDR here's how the heightmap underneath of it looks.
02:18:26 -!- augur has joined.
02:18:43 <ais523> imode: I don't see how that contradicts y and z being the same axis
02:18:43 <imode> so it's not 3/4ths. it's actually something weirder.
02:18:57 <imode> ais523: well, as you go higher, you don't.. go anywhere.
02:19:13 <ais523> as you go higher vertically above the ground, you move upwards on the screen slightly
02:19:16 <ais523> the same as if you went north
02:19:20 <ais523> just by a different amount
02:19:33 <imode> no.
02:19:41 <zzo38> What I have been told is that they added chess clock recently in Pokemon game.
02:19:43 <ais523> it wouldn't surprise me if the fraction wasn't exactly ¾, it doesn't have to be for that sort of perspective
02:20:13 <imode> it's not 3/4ths, because if that were the case, then going up and "out" would amplify eachother.
02:20:22 <imode> because y = y + z;
02:20:36 <ais523> zzo38: the clock they used before was clearly ridiculous, it had a maximum time for each player's move (resetting each move) and a maximum time for the game altogether
02:20:41 <ais523> also it counted animations in the latter time I think
02:20:56 <ais523> so some people used shinies simply to add extra animations, because they thought a timeout would be good for their team
02:21:09 <imode> if you move "up" and "out" in this way, you're not adding your upward displacement to your outward displacement.
02:21:25 <imode> so it isn't 3/4ths. it's just a heightmap.
02:21:46 <zzo38> I wanted to make my own pokemon battle program; it has no animations so those can't take up time, regardless of how you configure the time controls
02:22:03 <ais523> imode: they are being added, just they have opposite signs to what you're expecting
02:22:11 <imode> ais523: ...no, they aren't.
02:22:11 <ais523> in that picture
02:22:15 <imode> nnnope.
02:22:19 <ais523> however IIRC RSE's gives them teh same sign
02:22:30 <imode> it's not 3/4ths. golden sun is 3/4ths.
02:22:37 <imode> pokemon rse is just a heightmap.
02:22:46 <imode> same with rgby.
02:23:10 <ais523> when you jump over a ledge in RBY
02:23:16 <imode> I'll tell you why: build a mountain in pokemon, build a mountain in golden sun.
02:23:23 <imode> in golden sun, if you stand behind the mountain, you can't see yourself.
02:23:30 <imode> if you stand behind a mountain pokemon, you can always see yourself.
02:23:43 <ais523> this is only because you can't build one with a sufficiently high slope
02:23:44 <imode> height goes towards the screen instead of up.
02:23:55 <ais523> err, sufficiently stepe

02:24:29 <\oren\> wtf
02:24:31 <imode> does it keep repeatedly trying to join?
02:24:44 <imode> and can't somebody restart it?
02:24:54 <ais523> imode: shachaf's joining and parting it manually
02:24:57 <ais523> in the hope that it's stopped
02:25:45 <imode> heh.
02:26:05 <ais523> also I'd be surprised if you couldn't stand behind a cliff in the RSE engine; the problem is that the map design is designed to deny you opportunities
02:26:24 <ais523> things that are high above the ground also tend to be far north; the game map is designed like that intentionally
02:26:29 <imode> again, you can build a mountain/pyramid.
02:26:48 <imode> it's just that if you do it in 3/4ths and stand behind it, you won't be able to see yourself.
02:26:49 <ais523> ooh, I think I remembered a concrete example
02:26:52 <imode> because the pyramid will occlude you.
02:26:52 <ais523> the slide in the secret base
02:26:57 <ais523> you can stand behind that and be occluded
02:27:06 <imode> that's because it's on a different layer, just like bridges.
02:27:14 <imode> the game takes place on a 2D plane.
02:27:20 <ais523> it's because the back of the slide is vertical rather than being sloped
02:27:30 <ais523> and yes, it's a 2.5D engine
02:27:33 <imode> nnno, it's because it's on a different layer...
02:27:37 <ais523> i.e. it uses layers in order to do the calculations
02:27:43 <imode> it's not a 2.5D engine. it's entirely tile based.
02:27:48 <ais523> but the way the engine works doesn't affect the way the perspective works
02:27:56 <imode> ffs yes it does.
02:27:56 <ais523> 2.5D engines are tile based though
02:28:04 <ais523> like, these are two different issues
02:28:16 <ais523> a) how the engine internally represents the map, b) how it's drawn to the user
02:28:18 <imode> what don't you get about "it's a heightmap and y points towards the screen."
02:28:29 <zzo38> Can the chess clock in Pokemon game be applied grace time and/or increment time too, or not?
02:28:31 <ais523> that's a statement about the game's internal representation of the map
02:28:32 <imode> and "it's not 3/4ths because they are fundamentally different transforms."
02:28:36 <ais523> it's not a statement about how the map is drawn on the screen
02:28:42 <imode> oh my god. yes it is.
02:28:47 <imode> look at the images. compare the two.
02:28:51 <ais523> zzo38: it's very unlikely to be customizable
02:29:04 <imode> that's how it maps from the datastructure to the end rendering.
02:29:25 <ais523> imode: is this an actual example from the game? because AFAICT it contains mistakes
02:29:27 <imode> it is not 3/4ths. in fact, go ahead, download a RSE editor, pull it up, and try to occlude a character.
02:29:43 <imode> try to build like you would in something like 8bitmmo.
02:29:45 <imode> because you can't.
02:29:56 <imode> 8bitmmo is 3/4ths.
02:29:59 <pikhq> It's a statement about the art style in use. In terms of the *rendering and data structure*, it's flat 2d, and to my knowledge it's carefully designed to not require a z axis at all.
02:30:05 <ais523> you can implement 3/4ths perspective using a 2.5D (i.e. multiple layers of tiles) engine
02:30:15 <zzo38> ais523: It is why I have to make the new one, it can be fully customizable.
02:30:17 <ais523> you can also implement it using a 3D engine
02:30:40 <imode> it is not. 3/4ths. in no way do you increase your Y coordinate as you go higher up in altitude.
02:30:42 <ais523> zzo38: there are already fanmade Pokémon engines that may be easier to adjust than creating one from scratch
02:30:44 <imode> at all.
02:31:00 <ais523> imode: you can go onto a higher layer, can't you? that's one way of modelling the Y coordinate when it matters
02:31:01 <imode> even in the art style.
02:31:17 <ais523> just like the Z coordinate in older sonic games is implemented as a sequence of layers rather than an actual value
02:31:26 <imode> ais523: you can go onto a higher layer, but the layers are stacked on top of eachother facing towards the screen.
02:31:30 <zzo38> Several features of the existing ones I don't like so much though
02:31:33 <imode> there is no parallax.
02:31:34 <imode> so.
02:31:39 <ais523> I'm arguing that the fact that you can be occluded behind the slide is proof that the art style is intended to look like ¾
02:31:52 <ais523> even though that's implemented by placing the slide on two layers
02:32:03 <imode> the things represented in pokemon are impossible in 3/4ths because of the fundamental difference when you transform the 3d coordinates to screen coordinates.
02:32:03 <ais523> the only purpose for implementing it like that is so that the art will look correct
02:32:06 <imode> end of story. end of argument.
02:32:12 <imode> k.
02:32:21 <imode> if you wanna prove that wrong, construct a counter example.
02:32:33 <zzo38> I would do it the server in JavaScript and the client can be any telnet client (you need not download it), but you can also implement your own client using JSON
02:33:11 <zzo38> To avoid to include picture and sound effect therefore can save a lot of disk space too.
02:33:45 <zzo38> Rather than ones using specialized clients
02:35:01 <ais523> imode: here are some pictures of terrain from actual gen 3: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Secret_Base#Layouts
02:35:18 <imode> o..kay?
02:35:20 <ais523> on the south wall of a room, the top of the wall is occluding the bottom of the wall
02:35:41 <ais523> thus, the art style is clearly not an overhead view, i.e. the y axis and z axis are both being represented via vertical movement onscreen
02:35:49 <ais523> or the sprites would have been drawn symmetrically
02:36:07 <imode> compare that to the overworld mountain tiles.
02:36:18 <ais523> however, the amount is very small
02:36:27 <ais523> this is because the camera is "almost" overhead
02:36:36 <imode> also, those walls won't occlude the character.
02:36:44 <ais523> thus in order for something to occlude something else to its north, the height difference must be very large
02:37:02 <imode> also, I'm going to say that this isn't a valid example because it's just a single level of depth.

02:37:37 <moony> lol
02:37:41 <imode> wonder how long that'll go on for.
02:37:44 <ais523> imode: fwiw, my actual secret base in Gen 3 was full of puzzles in which I had traps occluded by other objects, so that you couldn't easily see them
02:37:59 <shachaf> It was unlikely to make much progress in 12 minutes.
02:38:00 <oerjan> i'm guessing the negatives are fewer than the positives
02:38:12 <oerjan> shachaf: i was just wondering how fast it went
02:38:18 <ais523> at least, I think it was gen 3, might have been gen 4
02:38:28 <imode> ais523: I studied the way they developed the art style and made that mockup about two months ago.
02:38:35 <oerjan> i assume the great majority of karmas are +-1
02:38:45 <imode> down to the tiles.
02:38:47 <ais523> your mockup is incorrect, though, it reverses the 3D y to 2D y mapping, and also has a few heightmap errors
02:38:52 <shachaf> Well, it took a long time to get to 1
02:38:59 <shachaf> But the negatives will probably be faster.
02:39:04 <imode> 1. no, it's completely correct, I dare you to prove it wrong. 2. probably.
02:39:06 <oerjan> hm i guess haskell's comment syntax means -- may be more common than ++
02:39:18 <imode> heightmap errors were kind of common. I was writing a renderer for it.
02:39:19 <shachaf> People also use -- as an mdash
02:39:21 <shachaf> emdash
02:39:24 <imode> but that's how it works.
02:39:34 <imode> if you want to prove me wrong, create an example RSE map.
02:39:41 <imode> where building "up" occludes the character.
02:40:17 <zzo38> When I told someone else that I wanted to make the text version of the pokemon battle, what someone suggeted is that it is good except for one pokemon species where they draw dots on your face depending on your personality value. What can be done though is that if you have that pokemon, then your opponent can see your personality value!
02:40:34 <zzo38> (It can just be displayed as text instead)
02:40:39 <imode> zzo38: I wanted to see if I could make a "net navi" for those with a pebble smartwatch.
02:40:48 <ais523> imode: here, the trees are occluding the mountain: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Hoenn_Route_103_RS.png
02:40:50 <imode> if you've played MMBN.
02:41:18 <ais523> the mountain itself confines to the grid because it's sloped at a 45 degree angle
02:41:25 <imode> ais523: if the trees are occluding the mountain, then why aren't they occluding eachother in the same image.
02:41:30 <zzo38> If data files from other Pokemon battle programs are compatible then it can be avoided to rewrite all of the data files at least, so it is not entirely to write by scratch.
02:41:30 <ais523> they are
02:41:37 <imode> not on the left side.
02:41:38 * moony studies argument or 2.5D info
02:41:38 <ais523> it's just hard to see because the top and bottom of the tree is the same colour
02:42:00 <ais523> the trees on the left don't fill the whole square, just enough to block movement
02:42:03 <zzo38> ais523: Do you know if the existing data files are compatible so that same data file can be in use?
02:42:07 <ais523> like, the base is towards the south
02:42:08 <imode> one second.
02:42:18 <ais523> it's a trick that Game Freak commonly use in order to save on rendering costs
02:42:36 <imode> http://s124.photobucket.com/user/darkstewie69/media/My%20Region/StarterTown.png.html
02:42:41 <ais523> zzo38: Veekun has an SQL database of all the data used by the Pokémon games
02:42:51 <imode> so why is this not consistent.
02:42:53 <ais523> that's what most people use
02:43:08 <imode> RSE uses a tile-based heightmap in order to render everything.
02:43:34 <imode> here's a better image...
02:43:35 <ais523> I'm pretty sure RSE stores the tiles in a "premultiplied" form
02:43:39 <imode> http://s1162.photobucket.com/user/AntiSpriteTheft/media/Hoenn_Route_122_RSE_zps3ce687bf.png.html
02:43:57 <imode> go "up" on this mountain.
02:44:00 <imode> you'll be heading towards the screen.
02:44:05 <zzo38> ais523: That might be useful. Which unofficial programs use it?
02:44:21 <ais523> i.e. if you want to place something at a particluar place on the map, you add y+z and store the tile at that location in memory
02:44:26 <imode> uh. no.
02:44:27 <ais523> but that's an implementation detail
02:44:31 <imode> that isn't how it works.
02:44:31 <ais523> zzo38: Im not sure
02:44:38 <ais523> imode: in your first picture the trees are occluding the lake
02:44:46 <imode> the first is fan-made.
02:44:48 <imode> second is in-game.
02:45:09 <ais523> imode: look at the north side of the mountain
02:45:14 <imode> pokemon RSE internally represents its position as a traditional X and Y pair.
02:45:19 <ais523> the higher layers are occluding the lower layers, because it's a 45° slope
02:45:32 <ais523> imode: the engine internally doesn't use the z value except when layers are involved
02:45:35 <ais523> but that's just an optimization
02:45:37 <imode> the higher layers aren't, actually.
02:45:41 <ais523> the game works in camera coordinates
02:46:11 <imode> there is no Z coordinate in the game except for layering, which has no physical effect.
02:46:15 <ais523> both sides of the mountain are sloped at 45° in that picture
02:46:29 <imode> in no way can you generate that picture using 3/4ths.
02:46:30 <ais523> look, you're confusing the game's representation with the view that the game wants to show to the player
02:46:36 <zzo38> I am making a JavaScript time-controls library so afterward I will be able to use that.
02:46:39 <ais523> imagine a game that uses an isometric perspective
02:46:44 <ais523> you can store that as x, y, z coordinates
02:46:51 <imode> ais523: stop telling me what I'm confusing.
02:46:51 <ais523> you can also store that as just x, y, and layer where two things cross
02:47:16 <imode> you can't use 3/4ths to generate that kind of a perspective.
02:47:22 <ais523> this is the same with ¾ rather than isometric; the game internally uses an x, y, layer coordinate system
02:47:25 <imode> because you can't see _behind the objects_ wit h3/4ths.
02:47:33 <ais523> you can't see behind objects there, either
02:47:37 <imode> uh, yeah, I can.
02:47:45 <imode> I can see the back side of the mountain while also seeing the front side.
02:47:55 <ais523> OK, see the grass in front of the entrance? then look at the row of rock immediately above it
02:47:59 <ais523> follow that round to the back of the mountain
02:48:02 <ais523> you'll see that it disappears
02:48:02 <imode> http://opengameart.org/sites/default/files/images/TUTO_chap3_Ody.gif
02:48:07 <imode> here's what 3/4ths looks like.
02:48:11 <ais523> because it's occluded by the mountain above it
02:48:30 <ais523> in the gif you just posted, the wall is vertical, the house is vertical
02:48:37 <ais523> they're good at occluding things behind them because they're vertical
02:48:41 <imode> so is the fucking mountain.
02:48:43 <ais523> in the screenshot from Pokémon, however, the mountain is not vertical
02:48:51 <ais523> it's a 45° slope
02:49:11 <ais523> thus it's much less good at occluding things behind it because it's approximately a pyramid, rather than approximately a cube
02:49:14 <imode> I'm challenging you to construct that mountain using 3/4ths.
02:49:16 <imode> do it.
02:49:18 <imode> freakin' do it.
02:49:50 <ais523> do you have a smaller example? that one's fairly large and it'd take ages
02:49:54 <shachaf> I know what 2.5D is, but I'm mystified by 0.75D
02:50:06 <imode> if you could, you wouln't be able to see the back of it because the front-facing parts would occlude the back ones.
02:50:22 <ais523> let me draw the top few lines for you
02:50:28 <imode> also, it isn't really... that tough.
02:50:32 <ais523> it'll take a while as it's a big mountain
02:50:49 <ais523> probably around twice as big as you think it is because you're misinterpreting it :-P
02:51:24 <ais523> ugh, the site keeps replacing the image with an advert when I unfocus it
02:51:27 <ais523> let me take a screenshot of the image…
02:51:29 <imode> welcome to imgshack.
02:51:39 <imode> or photobucket. or whatever horrible image service.
02:52:05 <imode> also, here's something.
02:52:11 <imode> if I was going "up" from the back of the mountain.
02:52:23 <imode> I'd increase my Y coordinate, right.
02:52:29 <imode> because y = y + z;
02:52:36 <imode> that's how 3/4ths works.
02:52:45 <imode> well. in pokemon, that doesn't work.
02:52:51 <imode> you actually decrease your Y coordinate.
02:53:57 <imode> because your x and y coordinates remain unchanged according to your depth. it's like traversing a heightmap. the art style is designed like that so large objects won't occlude your view.
02:55:47 <imode> those kinds of slopes pop up a lot of places.
02:56:22 <ais523> I'm busy working out the heightmap atm
02:56:29 <ais523> it's taking ages because I keep miscounting all the occluded area
02:56:38 <ais523> quite a lot is occluded on the north side
02:56:45 <imode> see above.
02:56:55 <imode> it may look like 3/4ths at a glance but it's actually not possible.
02:58:55 -!- moony has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
02:58:56 <ais523> please give me time to do this!

03:00:23 <imode> I know; I did research and I was writing a renderer for heightmaps like this.
03:02:33 <ais523> do you have a ¾ renderer so you can test the heightmap I'm giving you?
03:03:49 <imode> I had a 3/4ths voxel renderer at one point.
03:04:05 <imode> all that's left of it after morphing it into an isometric renderer is some screenshots.
03:04:18 <hppavilion[1]> Is lambdabot slowly dying?
03:04:30 <imode> it's dying from all the karma.
03:04:48 <oerjan> hppavilion[1]: no, it's slowly listing its entire karma database
03:05:08 <oerjan> so we keep it mostly out of the channel until it finishes
03:05:12 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: 0.0
03:05:18 <imode> ais523: compare pokemon's perspective to ALttP's... you'll find that the same inconsistencies are abound. it's "kind of 3/4ths" but not really, and everything either gravitates towards or away from the center of the screen like a heightmap.
03:05:29 <oerjan> no, it's got down at least -2.0 hth

03:09:02 <hppavilion[1]> I generalized numbers unconsciously the other day, and I want to know if there's anything like it yet
03:09:34 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
03:10:34 <hppavilion[1]> A single value V is a sequence of numbers (I use naturals, but you could use pretty much anything with the required operations and relations) [v_1, v_2, ..., v_k]
03:11:18 <zzo38> And then what?
03:11:26 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Trying to figure out how to explain
03:12:01 <hppavilion[1]> V > W if the length of V is greater than that of W. If they're the same length, then V is greater if its last value is more. If those are equal, V is greater if its second-to-last is more
03:12:05 <hppavilion[1]> Etc.
03:12:45 <zzo38> OK
03:13:08 <zzo38> I have thought of similar thing once but I also don't know if there is anything like it yet
03:13:24 <hppavilion[1]> I think of it sort of like a trophy case- somebody with 3 second places is better than someone with 2, but there is no number of second places that is better than a single first place (in theory)
03:13:40 <hppavilion[1]> (which is why I call it "cases" or "tropheries" for now)
03:14:03 <zzo38> OK
03:14:03 <oerjan> afaict, that's order isomorphic to ordinals < omega^omega
03:14:28 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Oh?
03:14:34 <oerjan> and what you are describing is basically their Cantor normal form
03:14:44 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Bearing in mind that the length and values must all be finite?
03:14:51 <hppavilion[1]> Yeah, it is, isn't it
03:14:53 <hppavilion[1]> Interesting
03:17:26 -!- lambdabot has joined.
03:18:05 <oerjan> huh, seems like it's finished
03:18:15 <oerjan> i guess there weren't many below -2, then
03:18:48 <oerjan> very well

03:20:32 <ais523> imode: http://sprunge.us/BjgM is a heightmap representation of the same mountain that's shown in ¾ in the screenshot you gave, from the north edge down to the northernmost edge of the visible beach
03:21:15 <ais523> x is a square that's occluded; . is a square that is occluded but you can deduce that it's sea because if it were above sea level, it wouldn't be occluded
03:21:22 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: I assume you came up with the same definition that addition of V and W (V+W) is equal to [v_1+w_1, v_2+2_2, ..., v_i+w_i, l_(i+1), (i+2), ..., l_(j-1), l_j] where i = min({len(v), len(w)}), l is the tail of the longer sequence starting at position i ([] if they're the same length), and j = #l?
03:21:52 <ais523> note that in this perspective, the front of the mountain is directly vertical, which seems implausible; the game's perspective probably uses a different scaling factor between y and z than the one I assumed there
03:22:04 <ais523> ("front" = south face, the one nearest the camera)
03:22:54 <ais523> like, I put the camera at 45° from vertical in that heightmap but it's probably more like 22.5° in practice
03:23:11 <zzo38> hppavilion[1]: I think I did (although this was some time ago and I may have forgotten)
03:23:33 <ais523> the point is, though, that any camera orientation, from vertical to almost horizontal, can produce a mountain of that shape; you basically just apply shear to the mountain
03:23:39 <ais523> this is basic camera matrix stuff
03:23:45 <ais523> and shouldn't need proving
03:27:19 -!- Nithogg has joined.
03:27:20 -!- navet has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
03:28:22 <hppavilion[1]> And defining n*V for a case V (item-type p), allowing cases with element-types being a member q of Q (p \subseqin Q) (so usually q \in {|N, |Z, |Q, |R}. At weirdest, |S), and a value n (of type t) where (*) :: p -> t -> (\elem Q)
03:28:47 <imode> ais523: for the last time. read above.
03:28:59 <imode> it's impossible and you're wrong because it's a different projection.
03:29:01 <ais523> imode: you asked for proof, that's proof
03:29:10 <imode> I can't even parse that.
03:29:37 <imode> I was assuming you were drawing something. but it doesn't even matter because the fundamental proof is whether or not scaling the back slope can set you higher on your screen.
03:29:43 <imode> it can't. it remains unaffected.
03:29:52 <hppavilion[1]> n*V = ⦗n*v_1, n*v_2, ..., n*v_k⦘ with k = #V
03:30:06 <ais523> x is occluded, . is occluded but necessarily at height 1, other values are heightmap
03:30:15 <ais523> i.e. my drawing is the same mountain seen from directly above rather than at ¾ perspective
03:30:16 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: imode: Is an argument about to start?
03:30:16 <imode> if you scaled the back slope of that mountain and ended up with a higher y screen coordinate, it's 3/4ths.
03:30:19 <ais523> but we can't see all of it
03:30:20 <imode> other than that, it's not.
03:30:21 <ais523> hppavilion[1]: it started ages ago
03:30:25 <imode> so, you're wrong. end of argument.
03:30:34 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: I never noticed.
03:30:37 <ais523> imode: what's your definition of "scaled" here?
03:30:44 <ais523> if you start at a location adjacent to the bottom of the back slope of the mountain
03:30:46 <ais523> and move upwards
03:30:50 <imode> yup.
03:30:54 <ais523> on the mountain
03:30:56 <ais523> you will move up the screen
03:30:58 <imode> you will end up with a lower Y coordinate on the screen.
03:31:01 <hppavilion[1]> imode: ais523: Would you like an impartial third party? Because I can probably find someone
03:31:07 <imode> hppavilion[1]: no, this is just stupid.
03:31:10 <ais523> imode: look at the picture
03:31:15 <ais523> specifically, the second layer up on the mountain
03:31:17 <ais523> follow it round
03:31:21 <imode> this is the last time I'm going to say this.
03:31:21 <ais523> it disappears, right?
03:31:27 <ais523> this is because it's lower on the screen than the third layer is
03:31:34 <ais523> and thus the third layer covers it up
03:31:49 <imode> in this projection, if you scale a pyramid shaped structure from the back of the structure (i.e further away from the camera), two things happen in two different projections.
03:32:00 <imode> in 3/4ths, your screen Y coordinate increases.
03:32:04 <ais523> besides, here's an alternative proof you're wrong: every render that can be generated by a heightmap, can also be generated by a ¾ perspective (starting from a different object)
03:32:10 <imode> in pokemon's projection, your screen Y coordinate decreases.
03:32:17 <imode> end of discussion.
03:32:23 <ais523> please define "scale", it's ambiguous and I don't know what definition you're using
03:32:33 <imode> "go up the mountain".
03:32:34 <ais523> anyway, your screen Y coordinate /increases/ in Pokémon's projection
03:32:40 <imode> it. does. not.
03:32:41 <ais523> when you go up the north face of the mountain
03:32:55 <ais523> imode: if it decreased, then you would be able to see the entire back face of the mountain
03:32:58 <ais523> you can't
03:33:09 <imode> yes.. you.. can.
03:33:11 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, is this argument about how Pokemon works? xD
03:33:13 <imode> done with this discussion.
03:33:31 <imode> I don't have time to infinitely loop over an explanation you are clearly not getting.
03:33:38 <imode> what I need to do is cook dinner.
03:35:08 <ais523> imode: the easiest way to see this is to look at the beach; it's visible on the left, bottom, and right side of the mountains, but it is /not/ visible on the top, and the reason is because it has a lower rendered-y coordinate than the back of the mountain because it is lower on the screen; if being higher on the screen always gave a higher rendered-y coordinate, you would be able to see the beach
03:35:17 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Please, stop
03:36:09 <ais523> OK; I'm just annoyed because imode asked a question, refused to believe my answer, asked for proof, then when I spent like half an hour providing proof refused to look at it on the basis that it couldn't exist
03:36:58 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: I know that that's frustrating, but from imode's perspective you probably weren't giving a very good proof
03:37:14 <imode> you think you're annoyed, try "I wrote a renderer and drew mockups and understand how this thing works" while showing inconsistencies and you're just not accepting it because you can't listen to me for a split second.
03:37:24 <imode> drop your assumptions about how you think this piece of shit works and actually listen.
03:37:39 <ais523> look, you're moving the goalposts every time I try to respond to what you're saying
03:37:57 <imode> any more of this and I'm putting you on ignore. I'm sure you're a wonderful person otherwise but you're infuriating me.
03:37:58 <ais523> what I will concede is that in Pokémon, it's impossible to move to a location that's occluded by more than one tile
03:38:16 <imode> and this is dragging out too long.
03:38:33 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: imode probably isn't trying to move the goalposts; e knows what e means, e just didn't express it in a way you understood.
03:38:52 <ais523> what you're saying is that it's /impossible/ the perspective is ¾; what I'm saying is that it's not only possible, but also likely; however the way perspective works it will never be possible to prove
03:39:15 <ais523> because all renderings that can be produced in ¾ perspective can also be produced by an overhead camera (starting from a differently shaped object)
03:39:54 <hppavilion[1]> Either you two are using different sets of axioms, the definitions are different, or this is one of those weird areas of math that has something bizarre like how in Modal Logic, the statement "it is possible that p is necessary" implies "p is true"
03:40:05 <ais523> I'm also saying that the reason you're confused is that there are some small parts of the game which are clearly in ¾ perspective; you believe the rest of the game isn't, so you believe the game is inconsistent
03:40:09 <imode> in 3/4ths, here's what your screen projection looks like. x = x; y = y + z; in pokemon's perspective, here's what your projection looks like: x = x; y = y;. z is discarded because it's an overhead view. they are different perspectives.
03:40:19 <imode> and that's it. that's all. I'm not listening to you because you never listened to me.
03:40:22 <imode> so, /ignored.
03:40:33 <ais523> whereas I believe the game consistently uses ¾ perspective, and typically makes occluded tiles impassable in order to prevent you navigating "in the dark"
03:40:43 <hppavilion[1]> Ignoring each other for the time being seems like the best way to resolve this
03:40:57 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: e has you on ignore. You can stop now.
03:41:05 <ais523> I'm just really disappointed because of people being so aggressively wrong
03:41:29 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: imode is probably thinking the exact same thing about you right now.
03:42:22 <ais523> btw, the source of the disagreement is that I agree that ¾ perspective uses the formula "rendered-x = world-x; rendered-y = world-y + world-z"; I disagree with imode's assertion that Pokémon uses the formula "rendered-x = world-x; rendered-y = world-y"
03:42:40 <ais523> and imode was ignoring any evidence that I could provide for the latter disagreement
03:42:46 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Just don't tell me about the argument so I don't wind up taking sides
03:42:58 <ais523> but confusing the issue is the fact that Pokémon calculates using rendered-x/y internally rather than world-x/y
03:43:32 <ais523> hppavilion[1]: right, I shouldn't drag you into it because as you don't care what the answer is, it's unimportant that yo know
03:44:41 <hppavilion[1]> Yes
03:44:53 <ais523> the whole thing started because imode asked what the answer was, pikhq and I told them, then they refused to accept it
03:45:30 <ais523> that's normally, especially in a channel like this one, an invitation to have your misconceptions corrected (because presumably you want to be educated because you care about the answer), but apparently not in this case
03:45:58 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: I'm getting a feeling the argument might have been about different mindsets; one of you was going for mathematical perfection and the other for a high-accuracy approximation
03:46:49 <imode> ais523: for the record, I didn't ignore you because I thought you would stop, but thanks. again, the conversation devolves from a discussion about the way things actually work to trying to piss on eachother's keyboards.
03:47:10 <zzo38> Maybe it depends what Pokemon game? Maybe the different generation might work differently
03:47:27 <ais523> zzo38: it works differently from Platinum onwards, although the game's view looks much the same
03:47:32 <imode> you don't understand how this works. and instead of saying "wow that's how it works?" you'll try to make up any bullshit in order to "prove" you "understood it".
03:47:36 <hppavilion[1]> Dammit, imode.
03:47:45 <imode> this is so stupid. it's a god damn pokemon game.
03:48:04 <ais523> zzo38: Pokémon Red through Pearl use ¾ projection but the game stores the rendered version as the map internally; Pokémon Platinum onwards also use ¾ onwards but store the map in world coordinates, not rendered coordinates
03:48:05 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: imode: Please, you two, just put each other on ignore for the time being. It's for the best.
03:48:20 <ais523> *also use ¾ projection
03:48:22 <imode> yeah, how about we both shut up.
03:48:34 <ais523> well I'm going to answer questions about this when other people ask them!
03:48:42 <imode> and continue to be wrong.
03:49:08 <hppavilion[1]> imode: Not both shut up, ignore each other so you lose interest in talking about this topic and the argument dies
03:49:36 * imode pulls up a random article from hackernews.
03:49:42 <ais523> actually, here's a really good direct proof it's ¾ in gen 2: look at radio tower here: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Goldenrod_City_GS.png
03:49:59 <ais523> now I'll stop talking about it because I suspect if that isn't convincing, nothing will be
03:50:14 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Did you really have to do that?
03:50:16 <hppavilion[1]> Really?
03:50:29 <ais523> like, it sums up the argument in one sentence, so it's a good place to stop
03:50:50 <imode> you ignored mine, so I'm ignoring your's.
03:50:54 <ais523> it just took me this long to think of it
03:51:11 <ais523> (also I didn't /ignore/ your arguments; I /disagreed/ with them, and pointed out the bit I disagreed with)
03:51:22 <ais523> if I'd ignored your arguments I'd have said a lot less!
03:51:22 <imode> you really want me to dissect that image so this bullshit can go on longer.
03:51:28 <imode> just shut. up. and I'll shut up.
03:51:36 <ais523> no, I just want you to look at it and see if it makes any sense with your worldview
03:51:55 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Yes, but if you look at it externally, it's pretty clear you're just getting the last word. You very well may be getting the *right* last word, but you're still just continuing this awful, awful debate
03:51:59 <ais523> but if you're not going to do that, that's fine too, I can understand if you decided that your question isn't worth this much bothering about
03:52:00 <imode> gen2's art style isn't rse's, and I can't believe I'm saying that in a serious conversation.
03:52:15 <imode> I didn't ask you a fucking question condescending shit.
03:52:24 <ais523> you did, let me quote it
03:53:19 <ais523> <imode> what exactly would you call that perspective for RGBYRSE. <imode> like, the visual perspective. <ais523> it definitely has a name, I just can't remember what it is <ais523> I think it has "half" in it somewhere <pikhq> The established name for it is three-quarters perspective.
03:53:30 <imode> in all this crap I forgot the original line.
03:53:32 <imode> that's sad.
03:53:40 <ais523> then I've been spending all that time trying to clarify the answer because you disagreed with it
03:53:46 <imode> you're right, I did ask you what the name might be.
03:54:01 <ais523> disagreeing is fine, typically; we analyse each other's arguments to see where the disconnect is
03:54:03 <imode> and then further clarified that it's not 3/4ths.
03:54:05 <ais523> and eventually one person changes their mind
03:54:19 <imode> which is precisely why I was asking the question.
03:54:27 <imode> because if it wasn't 3/4ths then what the hell was it.
03:54:36 <imode> god damn I'll never casually ask anything again.
03:54:47 <ais523> my position is that gens 1, 2, 3, and the start of 4 use the same perspective; you disagree with that, so I've been trying to figure out where the disconnect is
03:54:48 <hppavilion[1]> I say this as a friend: I honestly think it's time for both of you to turn off the computer and go for walk
03:54:55 <ais523> at 4am?
03:54:59 <ais523> not safe to walk at that time
03:55:02 <imode> not e- yeah.
03:55:09 <imode> plus it's raining.
03:55:22 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Then go to sleep. Or listening to some music. Or read a good book.
03:55:35 <ais523> I mean, I was doing other things
03:55:41 <ais523> just I got pulled into the channel to try to help explain this
03:55:45 <ais523> but there's not much point at this point
03:56:01 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Quit: Leaving).
03:56:11 <imode> now he has the right idea.
03:56:12 -!- imode has left.
04:03:45 <ais523> ugh, for anyone lurking or logreading this, I'd like to say that I'm very upset by this, and explain why
04:04:09 -!- 17SAAF3NW has joined.
04:04:10 -!- 7GHAALOJK has joined.
04:04:23 <ais523> one of the main reasons I come here, other than talking about esoprogramming, it's that it's a channel with the sort of friendly atmosphere in which you can ask a quesiton, and often get an answer if someone happens to know it
04:04:51 <ais523> typically without the motivations being questioned (as they're often ridiculous), unless they happen to be relevant
04:04:59 <ais523> I value that a lot, and have made use of it in the past
04:05:12 <ais523> and I try to give back by helping people out with things they might be struggling with
04:05:33 <ais523> typically it's programming, but the projection used by Pokémon games counts too, I guess
04:05:56 <ais523> when there's a disagreement, then we tend to go more in depth in order to find out what the answer is, and that's what I was trying to do there
04:06:22 <ais523> there were other things I wanted to be doing, but it seemed like it was worth going through the effort so that someone else would do it for me
04:06:54 <ais523> and seeing all that be abused makes me very upset; it's like the more detail I went into, the harder things became rather than easier
04:07:06 <alercah> *nod*
04:07:13 <ais523> because everything I said was being pushed back against, with questions for more proof and the like
04:08:19 <ais523> especially because I used to work as a teacher, if someone isn't understanding something, I feel like it's me who's at fault for not explaining it correctly
04:08:49 <ais523> so I wanted to try to resolve the situation, and now that I haven't, I feel like I've failed
04:10:18 <ais523> anyway, I hope people won't be any less inclined to answer my questions, or to ask questions of their own, as a result; the conversations can often be really interesting, and typically everyone comes out having learned something
04:11:15 <ais523> I guess that's all I want to say

04:51:27 <hppavilion[1]> Hm, so how DO ordinals generalize beyond the "case system" I was thinking about earlier?
04:51:37 <hppavilion[1]> I assume it's probably that you allow cases to nest indefinitely deep?
05:01:47 <Cale> hppavilion[1]: Which case system?
05:02:16 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: A generalization of numbers I thought up that I called "cases" by an analogy to a trophy case
05:03:09 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: It uses the metaphor that a team that has won 2 third-place awards is better than a team that has won 1, but a team that has won 3 would be better
05:03:18 <hppavilion[1]> 4 would be better than the team that won 3, 5 better than 4, etc.
05:04:02 <hppavilion[1]> But there is no number of third-place wins that would, on their own, put you better than a team with only one second-place win
05:04:18 <hppavilion[1]> But a team with 2 second-place wins is better that that team, and a team with 3 better than them, etc.
05:04:35 <hppavilion[1]> But no number of second-place wins is better than even one first-place
05:05:12 -!- navet has joined.
05:08:23 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: So you create a generalization of numbers in the form of a finite sequence of natural numbers C = [C_1, C_2, ..., C_(k_C)]
05:08:36 <hppavilion[1]> Where C > D if len(C) > len(D)
05:08:58 <hppavilion[1]> And C > D if C's last element is greater than D's last element
05:09:07 <hppavilion[1]> s/And/else/
05:09:34 <hppavilion[1]> else C > D if C' > D', where C' is C with its last value truncated and D' is D with its last value truncated
05:09:52 <Cale> So yeah, that seems like a well-ordering to me: for any nonempty set of such things, it will have a least element
05:09:52 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: So... that
05:10:29 <Cale> So it'll be order isomorphic to some particular ordinal.
05:10:34 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Well... yeah
05:10:52 <Cale> No matter which ordinal that happens to be, it will have a successor :)
05:10:53 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Yes, and apparently this is isomorphic to the ordinals < omega^omega
05:11:53 <hppavilion[1]> Developed completely on my own while watching the Yogscast :D
05:12:06 <hppavilion[1]> (then forgotten about, then dredged back up later)
05:13:19 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: The next logical step was addition; V+W is done by expanding the shorter one by right-padding it with zeros to have the same length as the longer one, then simply performing element-wise addition
05:14:13 <hppavilion[1]> So [1, 2, 3]+[2, 3, 5, 7, 11] = [1, 2, 3, 0, 0]+[2, 3, 5, 7, 11] = [1+2, 2+3, 3+5, 7+0, 11+0] = [3, 5, 8, 7, 11]
05:14:16 <Cale> Sure, or you can simply think of these things as sequences which are eventually 0
05:14:31 <shachaf> one would hope that an ordinal notation can at least handle ordinals < eps_0 twh
05:14:46 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Well, yes, that's the mathematical version, but I was computer-implementing them :P
05:15:00 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: What's at eps_0 twh?
05:15:27 <shachaf> @google cantor normal form
05:15:28 <lambdabot> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordinal_arithmetic
05:15:44 <shachaf> well, those things
05:16:04 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: So, V+n (for some Case V and some scalar n) was easily equal to V+[n]
05:17:04 <shachaf> If polynomials are free ring expressions (are they?), what are CNF ordinals?
05:17:19 <shachaf> Er, that's Cantor, not Conjunctive.
05:17:29 <hppavilion[1]> So then, it was simple to figure that, as long as I'm extending numbers, there's no reason to constrain the /elements/ to natural numbers; I can allow the elements themselves to be Cases
05:17:33 <Cale> hppavilion[1]: Note that there's an interesting involution on these things
05:18:01 <Cale> er, sorry, I was thinking of something else :)
05:18:19 <Cale> If we were to insist that the elements of the sequences were descending...
05:18:40 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Ah, treating it as reverse?
05:19:01 <hppavilion[1]> So instead of the second element being infinity, the second element is infinitesimal?
05:19:03 <Cale> Oh, sure, you could reverse them.
05:19:17 <Cale> But I was thinking of a transpose operation that doesn't quite work out
05:19:23 <hppavilion[1]> Oh
05:19:37 <Cale> (well, you can do something like Haskell's transpose which squishes things together)
05:20:23 <hppavilion[1]> I also figured that nV for scalar n and case V is easily [n*V_1, n*V_2, ..., n*V_k] for k = #V
05:20:23 <Cale> > transpose . transpose $ [[1,1,1,1], [1,1], [], [1,1,1]]
05:20:25 <lambdabot> [[1,1,1,1],[1,1,1],[1,1]]
05:21:17 <hppavilion[1]> I'm stuck on VW for cases V and W, but it might turn out like matrices
05:21:18 <Cale> @let tr = map sum . transpose . map (flip replicate 1)
05:21:21 <lambdabot> Defined.
05:21:29 <Cale> > tr [4,2,0,3]
05:21:33 <lambdabot> [3,3,2,1]
05:22:09 <Cale> (not quite an involution like this, but it's sort of a closure operator)
05:22:38 <hppavilion[1]> (Though, wait, I could stick to the definition for nV and wind up with V = [1, 2], W = [3, 4, 5], VW = [3[1, 2], 4[1, 2], 5[1, 2]] = [[3, 6], [4, 8], [5, 10]])
05:23:12 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: But, wait, you CAN do ordinals like this descending, correct?
05:24:06 <Cale> descending?
05:24:52 <Cale> hppavilion[1]: You can think of any ordinal as being the set of all ordinals strictly less than it (von Neumann's definition of ordinals does this)
05:25:03 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Yes, you can
05:25:28 <Cale> Oh, are you talking about my descending sequences?
05:25:33 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: I mean, if you were to take my Case notation and, instead of having a lowest level and higher levels that take precedence, you have a highest level and lower levels that break ties
05:25:37 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Maybe, I'm not sure
05:25:52 <Cale> oh
05:25:59 <Cale> The ordering on ordinals isn't dense
05:26:11 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: I didn't think it was?
05:26:19 <Cale> Well, if you can always break ties...
05:26:41 <hppavilion[1]> Wait, [3, 4, 5][1, 2] = [1[3, 4, 5], 2[3, 4, 5] = [[3, 4, 5], [6, 8, 10] dammit. Non-commutative, which is sad.
05:27:04 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Well, no, if it's the same on every level then there's a tie and they're equal
05:27:19 <Cale> Like, if it's the first element of the sequence which is most significant, and you're just taking the lexicographic ordering
05:27:29 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Yes, I believe so
05:27:39 <Cale> then that's dense, in the sense that for any two sequences you'll be able to find one which is in between them
05:27:46 <Cale> It won't be well-ordered
05:28:55 <Cale> e.g. {[1],[0,1],[0,0,1],[0,0,0,1],...} will be an infinite descending sequence having no least element
05:29:07 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: In the Cases, taking [a, b, c] > [d, e, f] means that you take c > f. If c > f, then [a, b, c] > [d, e, f]; if c < f, then [a, b, c] !> [d, e, f]; if c = f, then you take b > e and repeat
05:29:19 <hppavilion[1]> And you can extend the last element indefinitely
05:29:46 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: I didn't need well-order; it's not about ordinals, it's about infinitesimals
05:29:53 <Cale> Yeah, it's the other way around which gives you ordinals
05:30:01 <hppavilion[1]> Cale: Exactly
05:30:44 <hppavilion[1]> And once you have that, there's no reason you can't glue it together into ([infinite], finite, [infinitesimal])
05:31:23 <Cale> the tricky part is how to multiply
05:32:06 <Cale> You might hope to get a field which incorporates various infinitesimals and infinities
05:33:44 <hppavilion[1]> I would.
05:33:49 <Cale> (or maybe a semiring, in your case)

05:42:08 <Cale> It's like cl is a monad which is also a union monoid homomorphism. :)
05:42:40 <shachaf> How can you generalize that last bit?
05:43:50 <Cale> Perhaps it's a monoidal functor, but I'm not immediately sure whether (empty set, union) gives a monoidal category structure on the powerset with inclusions... I'd like to think it does
05:44:37 <Cale> ah, yeah, sure it does

06:40:34 <myname> proposal: make a wiki plugin that changes the category labels from "brainfuck derivate" to "boring"
06:41:15 <hppavilion[1]> So... epsilon_0 is equal to omega^omega^omega^omega^...?
06:45:55 <myname> is epsilon to omega what infinity is to 8?
06:47:13 <hppavilion[1]> myname: No.
06:47:34 <hppavilion[1]> Huh, as it turns out, my form treats arbitrary nesting as the same. Apparently.
06:48:01 <myname> i'm not sure what you are doing, but it sounds broken
06:48:14 <hppavilion[1]> myname: Ordinal numbers, as it turns out
06:48:33 <hppavilion[1]> [0, 0, 0, ..., 1] with n 0s is omega^n. [0, 0, 0, ..., k] with n 0s is k*omega^n

06:48:54 <izalove> derivate
06:49:15 <myname> izalove: so it's brainfuck if your tape is infinitely long in both directions.
06:49:16 <hppavilion[1]> So, from that, I found that [0, [0, 1]] = omega*omega = omega^2 = [0, 0, 1]
06:49:32 <izalove> myname: nah only on the left hand side
06:49:51 <hppavilion[1]> izalove: that's a TBS

07:07:00 <shachaf> They look very similar.
07:07:18 <izalove> not. at. all.
07:07:35 <shachaf> In 1998, Nestle obtained a trademark for a tubular Smarties package. It later sued Master Foods in Denmark, which was marketing M&M minis in a similar package. The Supreme Court of Denmark ruled that a basic geometrical shape could not be trademarked and ordered the trademark to be removed from the trademark register.[7]

18:43:05 <wob_jonas> The tricky part with vegetables is that many of them have two names in Hungarian, and you have to learn both of the names to make sense of menus, recipes, or price signs in shops or markets. Specifically, krumpli = burgonya; zöldborsó = cukorborsó, fehérretek = jégcsapretek, pirosretek = vajretek (IIRC, it's confusing because there's also sörretek)
18:43:05 <wob_jonas> , spenót = paraj.
18:43:43 <wob_jonas> Food names are tricky.
18:47:22 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds).
18:51:01 <wob_jonas> Since as a kid you only learn one of the names from your family, learning the rest is sort of a rite of passage during growing up.
18:51:13 <alercah> whyy
18:51:26 <Phantom_Hoover> this is kind of true in english also
18:52:01 <alercah> well there's meat
18:52:46 <alercah> I heard one explanation for the naming of meat being that the peasants called animals by their germanic names and the nobles by their romantic ones, and the differentiation by animal vs meat came about because the nobles mostly ate animals and the peasants mostly didn't
18:53:05 -!- ais523 has joined.
18:54:46 <Taneb> Phantom_Hoover, the only examples I can think of in English are swedes and aubergines
18:55:05 <Phantom_Hoover> i feel like there are more but i can't remember offhand
18:55:35 <Taneb> (= rutabagas and eggplants respectively)
18:56:27 <shachaf> (=
18:56:39 <shachaf> rutabagas are square roots, if i remember correctly
18:58:47 <wob_jonas> Meat doesn't have many exacly equivalent words in Hungarian (though there's baromfi = szárnyas), but there is a large vocabulary for the same animal when it's male, female, neutered, young, etc, and of specific body parts that are applicable to only one animal (tarja, bélszín, szűzérme).

19:03:43 <zzo38> When do you think Samhain will be? People are not always agreement. To some people it is October 31 (same as Hallowe'en) in the northern hemisphere, to some people it is 15 Scorpio in the northern hemisphere (regardless what date that might be), to some people it depends on the phase of the moon, and to some people "Samhain" simply means "November". (And, "Hallowe'en" is short for "Hallows Eve".)

19:04:56 <zzo38> (I myself don't care when in Samhain, but it is sometime near now; it is how the seasons go)
19:05:44 <zzo38> Hallows Day is November 1, but how common does anyone do anything for Hallows Day anymore?
19:06:35 <alercah> I believe it's still celebrated in some branches of Christianity
19:06:42 <alercah> it's traditionally a feast day
19:06:46 <zzo38> It probably is
19:07:03 <zzo38> Although probably some people ignore it even if they are Christian

19:07:30 <wob_jonas> zzo38: yes, it's a bank holiday here and the custom is for people to visit the cementaries for graves of their dead relatives (relatives who are still alive are visited on Easter and Christmas)
19:07:52 <zzo38> wob_jonas: Ah, OK. Where is that?
19:08:10 <alercah> Hungary
19:08:22 <wob_jonas> it's a very popular custom, so much that there are extra buses going to cementaries
19:08:27 <zzo38> OK
19:08:29 <wob_jonas> yes, in Hungary
19:09:14 <\oren\> ❄ping
19:09:17 <\oren\> argh
19:09:58 <zzo38> What I have read is that the Catholic Church invented the name Hallows Eve to go with Hallows Day, even though they did not invent the stuff that happens on Hallows Eve.
19:13:00 <zzo38> To me, it is sensible to put the religious holidays according to the seasons (which is what Pagans generally do), even though Christians don't. This can be problem in southern hemisphere because Christmas is on Dec.25 even though it is the summer time there!
19:14:03 <wob_jonas> (So obviously it's a commercialized holiday where flower shops earn a lot of money, just like women's day, Valentine day, and teachers' day.)
19:14:04 <zzo38> I don't know if it make sense to you or not (regardless of your religion, even if you are non-religious, I think it makes sense)
19:15:29 <zzo38> wob_jonas: Yes, probably many shops will earn a lot of money because a lot of commercialized holiday is done, maybe a bit too much, but it is your choice to buy it or not, anyways.
19:15:33 <wob_jonas> Funnily, there seems to be no commercialized custom for October 23rd yet, despite that it's a national holiday. That's a market hole someone should grab.
19:15:55 <zzo38> What holiday is October 23?
19:16:11 <wob_jonas> remembrance of the revolution of 1956
19:16:31 <wob_jonas> it's a sad one, but that doesn't stop getting commercialized as far as I can see

22:26:46 <fizzie> Not sure if that means they were more or less likely than average to be looking for something else than us.
22:27:17 <zzo38> Do you know how much is the average?
22:27:48 <fizzie> I don't have statistics on that.
22:27:50 <wob_jonas> brainfuck again? what's wrong why all the other esolangs?
22:28:18 <ais523> BF's the most popular
22:28:25 <ais523> and something many people want to learn
22:28:52 <ais523> it's also easy enough that it can be viably taught, and has enough depth to give a lot of material
22:29:32 <ais523> whereas more difficult esolangs are often about finding the trick that lets you compile something else into them
22:31:00 <wob_jonas> hmm... compiling something else into them. let me check if you fixed your description of your M:tG turing completeness proof

22:41:19 <boily> mhelloony. backup your personal stuff, and that's about it.
22:41:33 <ais523> moony: backup in advance; and assuming you're planning to continue as dual-boot, get Windows to repartition the disk in advance to make a lot of empty space
22:41:52 <ais523> then install Linux to the empty space (partitioning that as you like)
22:42:04 <shachaf> ais523: This immovable files thing Windows does is very annoying.
22:42:13 <ais523> Windows is better at resizing drives in its own formats than the typical Linux installer is
22:42:16 <ais523> shachaf: indeed :-(
22:42:26 <shachaf> I finally figured out how to disable enough things to resize my NTFS partition to the size I wanted.
22:42:36 <shachaf> But it was a long and complicated list.
22:42:50 <wob_jonas> moony: try to search on the internet for experience by people who tried to use linux with hardware you use, especially wrt power management, video card, wifi card, and hardware raid.
22:42:53 <shachaf> Swap files, System Restore, all sorts of things.
22:43:47 <fizzie> If it's a laptop and a not entirely obscure model, usually someone's written an article about how Linux runs on it.
22:44:01 <moony> its a laptop. Toshiba Satellite

22:44:58 <wob_jonas> right, it's more important for notebooks because (a) power management is more important there, (b) wifi cards are more important there, and (c) you can't easily add other hardware to replace hardware you can't get to work with linux
22:45:26 <ais523> I've installed Ubuntu on a Toshiba Satellite before now, it went fine

22:46:27 <fizzie> I've installed Debian on a Toshiba Tecra 730CDT, it didn't go terribly well.
22:46:37 <FaerieFly> `ls be*
22:46:38 <fizzie> Or I guess it went reasonably well, but it was a little convoluted.

22:46:45 <FaerieFly> `` ls be*
22:46:46 <HackEgo> ls: cannot access be*: No such file or directory
22:47:01 <ais523> actually, does Debian have a secure boot cert?
22:47:16 <ais523> and does the Toshiba in question have a secure boot configuration?
22:47:19 <ais523> if so that might need dealing with
22:47:31 <wob_jonas> ais523: it's complicated... it has one in the future, I think
22:47:38 -!- boily has quit (Quit: POLYMER CHICKEN).
22:47:44 <wob_jonas> but I think on many computers you can disable the secure boot
22:47:49 <^v> ais523, the channel currently is a joke but i did create a ~50 slide presentation which goes into depth how to program high level programs in brainfuck
22:48:06 <ais523> wob_jonas: yes but Windows bitches if you do that
22:48:07 <^v> including a language i wrote which keeps track of variables and does other neat stuff
22:48:14 <ais523> the problem with secure boot isn't its existence but its configuration
22:48:27 <ais523> I made sure that this laptop allows changing the secure boot configuration before buying it
22:48:44 <^v> like right now if you search "how to code in brainfuck" basically nothing shows up but printing basic strings
22:48:45 <^v> lol
22:48:46 <ais523> although the Linux half of the configuration changing was buggy last I checked
22:48:49 <shachaf> ais523: Did you figure out the job thing?
22:48:57 <ais523> shachaf: I had an interview last week
22:49:05 <ais523> haven't heard back yet; the interview went fairly well
22:49:09 <wob_jonas> an interview? nice
22:49:22 <ais523> and whether I get the job pretty much depends on how good the other candidates were, I suspect I'd get it if nobody else applied
22:49:37 <ais523> so it's down to whether any of them are better than me
22:49:42 <wob_jonas> what sort of job?
22:49:53 <ais523> programming for a CS department
22:49:59 * moony rederps and shrinks the C partition to make room for the linux partitions
22:50:00 <shachaf> better than you [at the interview process]
22:50:24 <moony> 33-44 GB should be enough i hope. >_>
22:50:39 <shachaf> What sort of programming?
22:50:42 <moony> because i cant get much more than that due to me being a complete derp and using almost all the diskspace
22:50:44 <shachaf> Are you going to write databases?
22:50:48 <moony> no
22:50:50 <ais523> shachaf: it's compiler-related I think
22:51:20 <wob_jonas> does the work environment seem pleasant?
22:51:33 <ais523> wob_jonas: I've worked there before
22:51:44 <ais523> moony: currently I have three Linux partitions: swap, home, everything else
22:51:46 <wob_jonas> ah
22:51:58 <ais523> the "everything else" is currently using 6 GiB, and it's fuller for me than it would be for many other people
22:51:59 <shachaf> Compiler for Standard ML?
22:52:25 <ais523> shachaf: well the interview was in OCaml
22:52:33 <ais523> for the programming sections
22:52:47 <shachaf> What other sections were there?
22:52:53 <shachaf> Do you think the interview process is good?
22:53:01 <ais523> normal job interview stuff, "tell me about yourself" and the like
22:53:37 <ais523> and I was OK with the normal interviewy parts, the programming part I had no real issue with the questions/tasks but was upset at all the surrounding infrastructure
22:53:42 -!- hppavilion[1] has joined.
22:53:47 <shachaf> "tell me about yourself" sounds like one of the most unpleasant questions anyone could ask me.
22:53:54 <shachaf> I guess it's a request, not a question.
22:54:04 <ais523> yes but it's very common in interviews
22:54:07 <ais523> they elaborated a bit
22:54:09 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Requests and questions are isomorphic
22:54:11 <shachaf> I think I'm unusual in this respect?
22:54:14 <hppavilion[1]> hth
22:54:20 <ais523> saying that they were interested in the sorts of things I'd done in previous jobs, what relevant experience I had, etc.
22:54:31 <ais523> out of interest, do you have a job?
22:54:37 <shachaf> Yes.
22:54:44 <wob_jonas> things you've done in previous jobs, now that's a better question
22:54:46 <moony> ok, adjusting C drive partition... now
22:54:55 <shachaf> And I've had others before this one.
22:54:58 <ais523> did they ask you to tell them about yourself in the interview?
22:55:13 <wob_jonas> and it's one that's probably worth to prepare for when you go to a job interview like this
22:55:16 <shachaf> I think "tell me about yourself" has been a relatively uncommon question in interviews.
22:55:16 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Though the first time I read that requestion, I read it as "let me tell you about yourself"
22:55:37 <ais523> moony: anyway I think 10 GB should easily be enough for the OS, programs, etc.
22:55:43 <shachaf> One time I was asked "what is your dream job?", which makes me almost as uncomfortable.
22:55:43 <ais523> anything beyond that will just be for storing your own files
22:55:47 <hppavilion[1]> Which is a REALLY unpleasant thing to hear, though not a question at all
22:55:49 <ais523> you could use the Windows partition for those
22:55:49 <moony> ais523, still want more :p
22:56:07 <shachaf> When I was hired, I looked at the internal company interview guidelines, and I found out that they just asked that question to put the candidate at ease.
22:56:12 <shachaf> The answer was effectively ignored.
22:56:15 <shachaf> Can you imagine?
22:56:57 <shachaf> Most of the rest of the interview was asking me technical questions, which I was much more comfortable with.
22:57:04 <wob_jonas> shachaf: I'd find dream job hard to answer. the problem is that my dream job is not having to do anything but getting paid a lot, but that's economically unrealistic, and I don't know enough about the current market situation to figure out an answer that's the most dreamlike among economically possible ones.
22:57:26 <wob_jonas> moony: buy an external hard disk?
22:57:39 <moony> wob_jonas, may do that
22:58:16 <shachaf> Another "tell me about yourself" thing companies implicitly do is ask for a résumé.
22:58:24 <shachaf> Or maybe a CV.
22:58:48 <shachaf> I refused to provide that at first, but eventually I gave in.
22:59:04 * moony is downloading the ubuntu install disk, because he thinks it may work better for a first-time dualbooter
22:59:35 <fizzie> I've managed to use 23.4 gigabytes of "everything else".
23:00:02 <fizzie> Of which 15 are in /usr.
23:00:19 <ais523> interesting, anything there that's particularly large, or is it an accumulation of small things?
23:00:31 <wob_jonas> fizzie: how much in /usr/local ?
23:00:33 <moony> ohderp it thinks i have a AMD computer.
23:00:43 <wob_jonas> and how many ghc installs?
23:00:44 <fizzie> wob_jonas: 144 kilobytes.
23:00:57 <moony> whats the value i need to make it give me the intel install
23:00:58 <fizzie> ais523: I think it's just a matter of always installing and never removing any packages.
23:01:19 <ais523> moony: if it says "amd64", that's the name of the 64-bit architecture used by both Intel and AMD processors
23:01:25 <ais523> AMD invented it, then Intel started producing it too
23:01:32 <moony> oh
23:01:40 <fizzie> 3507 installed packages, according to dpkg-query.
23:01:42 <moony> i am a derp.
23:02:11 <fizzie> There's probably some way of asking dpkg to list them in order of size used on disk.
23:02:49 <fizzie> I think texlive makes up for a big chunk of that.
23:03:06 <wob_jonas> fizzie: just look for large directories or files, eg. du -a | sort -n
23:03:56 <wob_jonas> or better, du -a | egrep "^[0-9]{4}" | sort -n
23:04:21 <hppavilion[1]> Yay! I think I made a small object that maps natural numbers to natural number k-tuples
23:04:22 <wob_jonas> and yes, texlive and libreoffice take up a lot
23:04:35 <fizzie> Well, /usr/share/doc/texlive-doc is over a gigabyte.
23:04:44 <moony> ok, yay, free 73 GB for whatever i want
23:04:56 <moony> i need to clean up my win installation anyways
23:04:58 <fizzie> It's the first really "specific" directory; the only bigger ones are things like /usr/lib/gcc and /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu.
23:05:02 <ais523> moony: did you accidentally delete your Windows installation?
23:05:06 <moony> No
23:05:09 <moony> lol
23:05:21 <moony> im on _hexchat_
23:05:30 <ais523> so where did the extra 50GB come from?
23:05:40 <moony> free space
23:05:51 <moony> this is a 400GB drive
23:05:57 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
23:06:06 <wob_jonas> deleted your whole porn folder? other movies? music collection? photographs? temporary cache files? spam?
23:06:14 <moony> lol
23:06:19 <wob_jonas> downloaded version of your mailbox?
23:06:28 <moony> i should clean my downloads folder :p
23:06:46 <wob_jonas> video games or video game installers maybe?
23:07:01 <moony> i deleted a 3gb game i dont play anymore
23:07:06 <moony> :P
23:07:12 <Phantom_Hoover> oh fuck my life the tearing is back when i scroll
23:07:28 <hppavilion[1]> Hm, maybe not...
23:07:42 <int-e> disable the stupid soft scrolling :P
23:09:21 <wob_jonas> irc logs?
23:09:39 <Phantom_Hoover> int-e, that's a bad solution and you know it
23:10:02 <int-e> I don't know it, I really hate smooth scrolling.
23:10:13 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[Beeswax]] https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=50068&oldid=50056 * Albedo * (+0) /* instructions */ code error corrected
23:10:36 <wob_jonas> Phantom_Hoover: try scrolling by dragging the scrollbar middle with the first mouse button or pressing pagedown rather than using the scroll wheel or other methods.
23:11:04 <moony> so do i have to burn the install disk to the USB?
23:11:59 <wob_jonas> moony: there are multiple methods. I usually copy the tiny (network) installer to the hard disk, then boot it from a grub boot loader (either already on hard disk or from a bootable dvd with grub)
23:12:13 <wob_jonas> s/network/netboot/
23:12:25 <moony> yea, im using a net installer.
23:12:42 <wob_jonas> the netboot installer makes it easy because it consists of only a kernel and an initrd, no other files necessary
23:12:45 <moony> due to a somehow 1GB usb :P
23:12:57 <moony> thanks debian netinstall :P
23:13:32 <ais523> burning to a USB stick is normally the easiest method, although it's not the only one that works
23:13:32 <wob_jonas> obviously it also means having to download everything from network redundantly each time you install
23:16:13 <moony> true
23:16:28 <moony> but i already have a netinstall thing downloaded to my computer :p
23:16:53 <wob_jonas> burn the netinstall plus a boot loader to the usb stick?

23:45:20 <hppavilion[1]> Is 2^2^|R larger than 2^|R?
23:45:22 <hppavilion[1]> I assume so
23:46:35 <shachaf> @google cantor's theorem
23:46:35 <lambdabot> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantor's_theorem
23:46:44 <shachaf> that answers a bunch of the recent questions hth
23:47:13 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: ty
23:47:38 <hppavilion[1]> Presumably P {} = {{}}
23:48:13 <ais523> why am I being thanked?
23:48:21 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Whoops
23:48:23 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Not sure?
23:48:25 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: ty
23:48:42 <hppavilion[1]> Hm, S(0) = {}; S(k) = 2^S(k-1);
23:48:54 <ais523> how do people confuse me and shachaf?
23:49:44 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: That is a good question
23:50:11 <wob_jonas> ais523: tab completion and qwert
23:50:19 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: With an existentially satisfying answer form which springs forth the meaning of life, a Grand Unified theorem, and the secret to immortality
23:50:27 <hppavilion[1]> s/form/from/
23:50:52 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Is QWERT the union of QWERTY and QWERTZ?
23:51:02 <wob_jonas> yes
23:51:36 <ais523> clearly we need a QWERTX too
23:51:53 <wob_jonas> well, we have azerty
