00:04:26 <HackEgo> Your wise @messages-lord fanfic oerjan is a lazy expert in future computation. Also a Glasswegian who dislikes Roald Dahl. He could never remember the word "amortized" so he put it here for convenience; but lately it's the only word he can ever remember. His arch-nemesis is Betty Crocker. He sometimes puns without noticing it.

19:02:06 <int-e> (I've just lost a CaC VM that way about two weeks ago, VM was up but lost network... however in that case the gateway was also unreachable from outside and that doesn't appear to be the case here.)
19:03:19 <int-e> (that's assuming that the gateway is 162.248.166.1)
19:03:33 <Gregor> That is indeed the gateway.
19:07:58 <Gregor> int-e: Problem seems to be the opposite. Outside can see GW but it can't.

19:09:15 <shachaf> Oh, no HackEgo
19:09:25 <shachaf> Just as well, HackEgo being slow makes me not want to olist.
19:10:44 <shachaf> Since I olist, then it doesn't reply for a long while so I switch to another window, then it notifies me.
19:12:17 <int-e> Gregor: the gateway being visible from outside is new to me, it not being visible from inside also happened with my VM. total routing failure.
19:12:46 <Gregor> Not really much I can do about it :)
19:13:26 <int-e> Yeah. You can create a ticket and wait while CaC totally ignores it.

22:04:19 <fizzie> I have once done a read-only backup copy for the wiki. Wonder if I should do something like that again.
22:04:53 <fizzie> Probably depends on how long the server is going to be down.

22:21:08 <ais523> fizzie: wiki seems to be down
22:26:18 <fizzie> ais523: We were discussing that very thing right now, in fact.
22:26:26 <ais523> right, I just checked the log
22:26:35 <ais523> PPCG went and told me to go ping you though
22:26:48 <ais523> so it looks like there's at least two communities outside us that care about the wiki being down…
22:27:23 <fizzie> That's: so weird. Maybe I'll see if I can set up that read-only copy. I might still have most of the configuration in place.
22:28:29 <fizzie> Fortunately it was up on the 30th, so my weekly backup isn't even particularly stale.

22:56:33 <fizzie> This database restore takes a relatively long time.
23:01:27 <fizzie> Hrm.
23:01:37 <fizzie> I'm getting back "A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software."
23:02:10 <fizzie> Although maybe that was because the MySQL instance wasn't listening on TCP, just a Unix domain socket. Wonder if MediaWiki could use that.
23:02:55 <fizzie> Oh, it's already supposed to do that when the server is specified as "localhost".
23:06:56 <fizzie> I set on $wgShowSQLErrors, and the other error reporting thing on Manual:How_to_debug, but it still says nothing more verbose than that. :(

23:11:17 <fizzie> Oh, whoops, it was using a path to the old version of MediaWiki for the PHP thing.
23:13:57 <fizzie> It's being pretty slow, but it did show up, yay. Wonder if I should try to set up the HTTPS thing as well.

11:45:45 <izabera> a penis shaped building built in the 1920s or 30s
11:46:06 <izabera> it's meant to represent virility and such

11:54:49 <Taneb> boily, it was known as "the mushroom"
11:55:40 <boily> a very concrete mushroom.
11:56:16 <Taneb> It was built in the 60s when times were simple and everything was concrete
11:58:13 <fizzie> There's a ufo-shaped one in Espoo.

12:30:40 <GReaperEx> Are there any cool Brainloller images out there? Like, the image should look like something, instead of just random noise.
12:38:50 <fizzie> Somehow I feel that it's more likely you'd find Piet programs instead.
12:40:38 <oerjan> i made a comment on that /r/esolangs post.
12:41:20 <GReaperEx> piet you say?... hmm
12:41:45 <fizzie> oerjan: That was well done.
12:42:01 <oerjan> heh, thanks
12:42:19 <fizzie> GReaperEx: Granted, a lot of Piet programs are random noise as well. But there's some stuff, like the sample hello-world: http://www.dangermouse.net/esoteric/piet/hw6_big.png
12:42:59 <fizzie> There was also a Facebook recruiting ad puzzle thing in Piet, done in the shape of their 'f' logo.
12:43:20 <GReaperEx> oh, that's cool!
12:44:08 <fizzie> And the pi calculator is very nice as well.
12:44:23 <fizzie> http://www.dangermouse.net/esoteric/piet/samples.html has all the "official" samples.
12:44:36 <fizzie> (Look for a big red thing.)
12:45:03 <GReaperEx> I guess any image could be created really, as long as you don't use the specific colors that translate to instructions. The interpreter should ignore anything else, right?
12:45:40 <fizzie> Piet doesn't define what colors except the 20 specific ones do.
12:45:50 <fizzie> "Additional colours (such as orange, brown) may be used, though their effect is implementation-dependent. In the simplest case, non-standard colours are treated by the language interpreter as the same as white, so may be used freely wherever white is used. (Another possibility is that they are treated the same as black.)"
12:46:05 <fizzie> So it's a bit risky business.
12:46:21 -!- oerjan has quit (Quit: Later).
12:46:23 <fizzie> I don't know about Brainloller, DNS for esolangs.org hasn't updated for me at work. :/
12:46:50 <GReaperEx> oh I see, implementation-defined and such.
12:46:59 <fizzie> If you're talking about an image of appreciable size, though, it's probably pretty easy to just arrange matters so that execution doesn't pass through the extra colors.
12:47:21 <GReaperEx> yes, that could be done too.
12:47:22 <fizzie> For example, there's this: http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=559
12:47:54 <GReaperEx> nice, pretty clever.
12:48:52 <fizzie> I did that pretty much by tweaking the noise left over (after palette conversion) a little bit.

17:01:07 <ais523> not sure, but I thought there was one where "1 2 3 4 5" was a list constructor
17:01:12 -!- tromp has joined.
17:01:15 <b_jonas> yes, it is in most
17:01:23 <ais523> I guess I got the evaluation order wrong
17:01:52 <ais523> I'm used to Jelly, where you have to start with a constant
17:02:05 <ais523> and then the rest of the program is a function that takes the constant as input
17:02:15 <b_jonas> the problem is that the stack consists of a noun followed by a verb with nothing before, which is not allowed by the grammar
17:02:25 <b_jonas> I see
17:03:28 <b_jonas> anyway, 1 2 3 4 5 is a list constructor in almost any apl-like, but (1 2) (3 4) is different: in some classical APLs it constructs a list of lists or something, in J it's a syntax error, in K I think it constructs a single flat list but I'm not sure

18:20:38 <shachaf> What's weird?
18:21:48 <int-e> oh, you emptied the bucket.
18:21:54 <int-e> never mind.
18:22:24 <fizzie> It wasn't a big bucket.
18:22:33 <fizzie> I'd call that a teacup, maybe.
18:22:40 <shachaf> I thought you were making a joke when you said none.
18:23:03 <shachaf> Do they drink tea in London?
18:23:39 <int-e> there are messages to <ais523>, <boily>, <b_jonas>, <mroman> and <oerjan> though... that won't work very well.
18:24:03 <shachaf> lambdabot was patched to allow @tell nick: instead of @tell nick

18:31:24 <fizzie> (That's in London.)
18:31:55 <shachaf> Is London more expensive to live in than San Francisco?
18:32:19 <fizzie> I don't think there's a scalar answer to that.
18:33:17 <shachaf> You were buying real estate in London the other day, weren't you?
18:33:55 <fizzie> Nnnot really, I just look at what's available occasionally.
18:34:02 <fizzie> Maybe later.
18:34:43 <shachaf> Do you think buying real estate in the bay area is a good idea?
18:35:09 <fizzie> Depends. Do you think California will become an independent country, and if so, will there be war?
18:35:20 <fizzie> I hear you're (/they're) talking that sort of talks.
18:35:23 <pikhq> I suspect living in the urban area of London is cheaper than in the urban area of SF, but living in the central region of London most analogous to SF proper probably is comparable.
18:36:07 <pikhq> (the cost of living in the Bay Area doesn't go down *that* much outside of SF, and transportation gets pretty hard the further you are from your work there.)
18:36:31 <shachaf> It's a fair bit lower around here, I think.
18:36:58 <pikhq> ... While in London, at least you have transport options meaning you can quite sanely live in a cheaper part of the region.
18:37:09 <fizzie> pikhq: Except when they're on strike.
18:37:20 <fizzie> (There's a tube strike coming from Sunday to Wednesday.)
18:38:02 <shachaf> Not 24 hours like usual.
18:38:39 <fizzie> Yes, can you tell I'm all frazzled about it?
18:39:29 <int-e> first May, then Trump, now this... the world is truly coming to an end
18:40:38 <int-e> and of course there's the sudden decline of CaC quality of service!
18:49:12 <fizzie> I toyed about the idea of running it on Google Cloud Platform, but turns out it doesn't support "individual" account types in the EU area, for VAT reasons.
18:49:22 <fizzie> (Where it == the wiki.)
18:51:32 <shachaf> good thing y'all scrapped the EU area hth
18:52:24 <shachaf> "If the sole purpose for which you want to use Google Cloud Platform services has no potential economic benefit you should discontinue your use of the service. Learn how to disable billing on your projects."
18:53:37 <int-e> economic benefit... to whom?!
18:54:26 <fizzie> I could be a "business", but then I believe I would have to pay VAT myself.
18:54:48 <int-e> yes, you would
18:54:54 <\oren\> next will be Geert Wilders, then Marine Le Pen
18:55:03 <fizzie> We have a Googler-internal coupon thing for some credits that should be sufficient, but I don't know how that interacts with tax.
18:55:20 <fizzie> Also not sure if I can even redeem that coupon with a non-"Individual" account type.
18:55:35 <int-e> afaiu the thing about VAT in the EU is that companies have to pay VAT in the customer's country of origin (and VAT rates differ between countries too)
18:56:22 <int-e> but nonetheless the sentence that shachaf quoted strikes me as odd.
18:56:31 <int-e> it's so unspecific
18:56:43 <shachaf> Well, it comes after several other sentences.
18:56:46 <fizzie> That's my understanding as well. And Russia changed their rules the same way, which means Google Cloud did the same thing for Russia. (Saw the thing shachaf quoted sent also for them.)
18:57:42 <int-e> shachaf: oh this comes after a specific list of uses that they're actually interested in? that would make sense
18:57:45 <fizzie> If I "pay" with a coupon, would I be liable for tax? I have absolutely no intuition (the best way to figure out taxation) about this.
18:58:06 <fizzie> int-e: It wasn't *that* specific.
18:58:13 <shachaf> int-e: https://support.google.com/cloud/answer/6090602
18:58:32 <shachaf> fizzie: While you're figuring out taxation, can you help me with the US tax code?
18:58:46 <shachaf> What constitutes "substantially identical" securities for the wash sale rule?
18:59:10 <fizzie> shachaf: Levenshtein distance of less than three hth
18:59:14 <shachaf> (This is less relevant nowadays since all my securities' prices have gone up.)
19:05:48 <int-e> huh, "Most software developers -- including affiliates, sole traders, self-employed merchants, partnerships, students and others -- use Google Cloud Platform for business purposes." really rings false to me.
19:06:35 <int-e> (students, really? and there are plenty of hobbyists, too, I'd think.)
19:06:41 <pikhq> I'm reading that as "Most software developers (who use Google Cloud Platforms) use Google Cloud Platform for business purposes."
19:07:26 <pikhq> Still, that is... Bizarre.
19:07:45 <pikhq> They just punted on the idea of end-user users of the service in Europe.
19:07:54 <pikhq> (which kills the viability of the service, IMO)
19:08:14 <pikhq> I imagine nobody would be using AWS if it had a similar setup back when.
19:09:42 <int-e> fizzie might *just* be fine as long as the billed amount remains a flat zero.
19:10:20 <int-e> but obviously that's just an opinion, not sure what the legal situation really is.

19:45:59 <pikhq> Considered? I guess I have, yes.
19:46:13 <ais523> do we want one? and if so, what would it look like?
19:46:49 <shachaf> Presumably it would involve limes.
19:47:16 <ais523> that's what the PPCG chat said too

20:29:36 <wob_jonas> ais523: about the community ads, one thing I was wondering is making one where the image is regularly replaced by a bot. it's a bit tricky, because you need to use the SE api for editing, which is nontrivial to implement, plus upload the images to their server, but it's possible and somewhat esoteric.
20:30:00 <ais523> wob_jonas: normally they just do that by directing the image to a server that updates, I think?
20:30:16 <ais523> like, the image file is hosted elsewhere and just gets replaced on the server that hosts it

20:30:42 <wob_jonas> ais523: also, I've been relaying messages on SE for a while, I can do it for you too if you want, but then since you're already joined it'd be more strange
20:31:15 <wob_jonas> ais523: no, the rules for the community ads specifically say the image must be hosted on imgur, and they probably enforce that
20:31:28 <wob_jonas> but someone's already documented how to automatically upload an image there

20:32:19 <wob_jonas> ais523: http://meta.scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/10564/community-promotion-ads-2017 "Must be hosted through our standard image uploader (imgur)"
20:32:46 <wob_jonas> if it was as easy as directing the ad to my server, then I'd have done it by now
20:33:27 <wob_jonas> although ordinary SE posts do allow images on your own server, so someone who wants that thing could collect a lot of traffic logs that way

21:49:48 <ais523> hmm, this new laptop appears to have a touchpadbinding that does the same thing as alt-tab
21:49:58 <ais523> I've hit it several times by accident, but experimentation fails to reveal what it is
21:50:22 <wob_jonas> ouch
21:50:33 <ais523> it doesn't appear to be a three- or four-finger drag up, down, left, or right
21:50:38 <wob_jonas> is there some software that lets you control settings related to that touchpad?
21:50:45 <ais523> although I did discover that a four-finger tap opens the "start menu" equivalent
21:50:58 <wob_jonas> ais523: perhaps it's on some particular area, like near some corner or edge?
21:51:02 <ais523> wob_jonas: on Windows, yes; this is on Linux, though, so I assume something in Ubuntu is involved
21:51:07 <wob_jonas> some touchpads have special functions near the edges and corners
21:51:24 <ais523> top right corner appears to be middle-click, I figured that one out a while back
21:51:42 <ais523> none of the other corners react to taps
21:52:47 -!- hppavilion1 has joined.
21:53:17 <wob_jonas> common functions include mouse wheel if you drag the right or bottom edge, and locking touchpad if you double-tap the corner with the led that shows whether it's locked
21:53:35 <fizzie> My work laptop has a touchpad with "non-physical" buttons like that, and I never quite managed to configure it exactly the way it should work, even with a lot of fiddling with synclient.
21:54:11 <ais523> wob_jonas: this touchpad doesn't do either of those
21:54:26 <ais523> incidentally, I'm somewhat impressed that it can distinguish a four- from a three-finger tap
21:55:16 <wob_jonas> ais523: lots of years ago, I had a combination of motherboard, mouse, and software that would occasionally sometimes become mad and start jumping large distances wildly and clicking, even though I just move the mouse. stops when the mouse stops moving, and becomes normal after.
21:55:40 <wob_jonas> sadly, the huge distances often moved the mouse to the very corner of the screen, where the close button of a window is
21:55:56 <fizzie> I wonder if these HasSecondarySoftButtons / SecondarySoftButtonAreas options existed when I was trying.
21:55:59 <wob_jonas> ais523: is it possible that this alt-tab thing is not a symptom of a similar bug?
21:56:32 <ais523> nah, I'm pretty sure it's intentional
21:56:45 <\oren\> I prefer using a bleutoth mouse nayway
21:56:52 <ais523> simply that I haven't figured out the trigger
21:56:59 <ais523> maybe it's buried deep in ccsm somewhere

21:59:24 <ais523> this feels like the sort of thing I should be able to figure out myself :-(

22:02:06 <ais523> I also found the docs for it online (after figuring that out), and it seems that much of its functionality isn't working
22:02:11 <ais523> only the "switch to previous window"
22:03:47 -!- tromp has joined.
22:04:08 <fizzie> I keep forgetting whether "drag with the right button" is executed as a two-finger tap followed by a single-finger drag, or a single-finger tap followed by a double-finger drag.
22:04:26 <fizzie> (Two-finger single tap is a regular right click.)

22:06:30 <ais523> actually, my issue with Unity is that it's broadly well designed from a UI point of view, but terribly implemented
22:06:48 <\oren\> All guis related to a window should stay in that window. they shouldn't be on the top of the screen
22:07:00 <ais523> I mean, it has an option for that
22:07:03 <ais523> but I'm not sure I agree
22:07:24 <ais523> basically, doing the opposite of Gnome 3 at every opportunity is probably the best way to design a UI
22:07:42 <wob_jonas> lol

22:08:07 <wob_jonas> `addquote <ais523> basically, doing the opposite of Gnome 3 at every opportunity is probably the best way to design a UI
22:08:14 <wob_jonas> oh right
22:08:16 <wob_jonas> we don't have the bot
22:08:27 <wob_jonas> but that should be addedquote
22:08:31 <ais523> I have to use Gnome 3 at work
22:08:39 <ais523> it took me a while to figure out how it works – it's fairly unintuitive
22:08:42 <ais523> and I still resent using it
22:08:58 <\oren\> also, there should be a menu containing a simple categorical list of every gui program on the system. you shouldn't have to guess at the name of the program in some sort of privacy-cancer-ridden search box
22:09:17 <ais523> at least Unity figured out fairly quickly that they shouldn't autohide the launcher, and made it there permanently by default
22:09:29 <ais523> \oren\: the search box doesn't access the internet by default nowadays
22:09:35 <ais523> unlike Windows', which does
22:09:45 <\oren\> Well I have windows 7
22:09:53 <\oren\> the last good windows
22:10:06 <wob_jonas> \oren\: oh come on, they say that about every windows version
22:10:14 <ais523> you can get a list of every GUI program on the system fairly quickly
22:10:15 <\oren\> wob_jonas: no.
22:10:25 <wob_jonas> I know windows 10 sucks, but at least say something that's specific to that one
22:10:31 <\oren\> the good windowses are 98, XP, and 7
22:10:43 <ais523> (start menu equivalent / Applications / Installed); it also lets you set filters to narrow it down to categories
22:10:43 <\oren\> all the others sucked
22:10:50 <ais523> \oren\: also you mean 98 SE specifically
22:10:51 <myname> 2000 was awesome
22:11:00 <ais523> but yes, 2000 was genuinely good
22:11:12 <ais523> 3.1 was also good for its time
22:11:14 <shachaf> Oh, you mean Windows, not the year.
22:11:14 <wob_jonas> what? 95 OSR2 was a decent one. no memory protection made sense at its time.
22:11:31 <wob_jonas> and I quite like windows 3.11
22:11:33 <myname> i prefer 2000 oder xp
22:11:46 <ais523> btw, I still have the opinion that Vista is the best version of Windows
22:11:50 <myname> over
22:11:58 <myname> wat
22:12:10 <\oren\> vista is a bug ridden turd
22:12:23 <\oren\> I've USED it
22:12:26 <myname> vista was like the public alpha of 7
22:12:53 <wob_jonas> ais: what? even over xp and 7?
22:12:53 <ais523> vista is not buggy in of itself, it's just very good at exposing bugs in everything else
22:13:06 <ais523> Microsoft had to back down from this policy because everyone blamed the OS
22:13:19 <ais523> with the result that 7 after it (and XP before it) are both much more tolerant of buggy program
22:13:22 <ais523> *programs
22:13:30 <wob_jonas> yeah, they have quite a lot of really crazy workarounds for old programs
22:13:40 <ais523> and so Microsoft lost pretty much their only chance to try to get the quality of programs on their platform up
22:13:41 <wob_jonas> some of them very unintuitive
22:13:42 <\oren\> ais523: linus torvalds said it best: "WE DO NOT BREAK USERSPACE!"
22:14:00 <ais523> \oren\: most of the crashes are a result of breaking kernelspace
22:14:11 <wob_jonas> like, redirecting the system32 directory unless the program claims he knows what system32 means
22:14:12 <ais523> the issue is that Microsoft mostly doesn't write drivers themselves
22:14:20 <ais523> but rather leaves it up to the hardware manufacture
22:14:46 <ais523> most of them suck at writing drivers, and many are selfish rather than playing nice with the platform
22:14:57 <\oren\> the point is that whatever was changed most recently must be blamed
22:14:58 <wob_jonas> yeah
22:15:07 <ais523> incidentally, this is why hardware more than a few months old is more likely to "just work" on Linux than Windows
22:15:58 <\oren\> anyway, things worked better on windows 7 and windows 7 gets that credit
22:16:08 <wob_jonas> ais523: sure, and if I buy my next computer, I'll try to buy a motherboard that's at least one year old if possible, so that within a year it will start to just work, when hardware people reverse engineer it to write drivers for everything, like power management and network card and disk controller and stuff
22:16:13 <wob_jonas> same for cpu
22:16:30 <wob_jonas> I think the case and hard disk can be new models, those don't matter much
22:16:50 <wob_jonas> the addition hard disks that is, I will also keep using the ones I have now
22:17:00 <wob_jonas> they're not as old as this motherboard and cpu and memory
22:18:57 <\oren\> anyway the point i was making about UI is that information hiding in a UI is bad
22:19:28 <\oren\> a large menu with every program in it is better than a pretty one where it's hard to find things
22:21:22 <\oren\> the menu for unity at least should have a section where you can get a scrollable list of all programs

22:35:05 <\oren\> windows 8 made the same exact mistake in their idiotic "start screen" of course
22:41:21 <ais523> \oren\: Unity's menu /has/ a scrollable list of all programs
22:41:43 <ais523> open the menu, click on the applications icon at the bottom (which looks sort-of like an A), then click on "installed"
22:41:57 <\oren\> why is it three clicks away
22:42:28 <ais523> because it's rarely used
22:42:51 <\oren\> and why isn't it labeled simply "all programs" like on windows 7
22:44:52 <\oren\> I never discovered it until I had given up and switched to XFCE
22:46:06 <ais523> well, I think it's fairly obvious that you'd click on the "applications" icon in order to get a list of applications
22:46:28 <ais523> and the third click is very obvious, given that it shows your most recently used applications and gives an option to see all of them
22:46:38 <\oren\> "installed"?
22:47:28 <ais523> the full text is: "Installed See 166 more results >"
22:47:33 <ais523> at the start of a short list of programs
22:47:42 <ais523> you click on that to get the full list
22:47:48 <\oren\> also, this is since when. I haven't used Ubuntu since version 11.04
22:48:27 <\oren\> well technically, I have, but not regularly
22:48:57 <shachaf> \oren\: how's your build system project doing today?
22:49:24 <\oren\> shachaf: I'm not in charge of the build system
22:49:39 <shachaf> the project to become in charge of fixing it
22:50:25 <shachaf> just learn from facebook, yo
22:50:27 <shachaf> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CE0xLl-UUAAd7nz.jpg
22:51:03 <\oren\> 11.04 is when they ruined the UI, so after wrestling with it for months learning to customize it into something resembling usabilty, I gave up and apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
22:51:14 <ais523> the first version of Unity was terrible, IIRC
22:51:18 <ais523> but it got better fairly quickly
22:51:34 <shachaf> Is it good now?
22:51:48 <shachaf> When I tried it about six months ago it still seemed pretty scow.
22:52:02 <\oren\> it still has the menus outside their proper windows and no normal applications menu
22:52:21 <\oren\> also, a weird dock instead of a taskbar
22:53:47 <oerjan> . o O ( that sounds a bit like old macOS. wait, i have no idea what OSX does... )
22:54:05 <shachaf> It does the same.
22:54:12 <\oren\> oerjan: OSX is just as shit an interface as old macs
22:54:31 <oerjan> OKAY
22:54:34 <shachaf> literally anything except what \oren\ is used to is utter scow
22:54:43 <ais523> shachaf: it's well-designed but badly-implemented
22:55:00 <shachaf> I'm using Cinnamon with Ubuntu now.
22:55:04 <shachaf> It's not ideal but it works.
22:55:59 <\oren\> shachaf: at first glance at the screenshot on wikipedia, cinnamon looks great
22:56:23 <oerjan> . o O ( today we'll show how to make a delicious vegan dish with cinnamon and ubuntu )
22:56:37 <\oren\> a normal desktop, a normal taskbar, a normal menu
22:58:21 <ais523> oerjan: there's actually a type of cola called ubuntu
22:58:27 <ais523> I don't know offhand whether it's vegan or not
22:58:42 <\oren\> and application menus are in the respective window for that application. WONDERFUL
22:58:44 <oerjan> hm, right

As someone who is a scientist who studies free software, I am telling you, specifically, in programming, no one calls freeware "free software". They're not the same thing. If you're saying "freeware" you're referring to the taxonomic grouping of Gratisdae, which includes things from...

00:19:59 <\oren\> or a 128 bit computer
00:21:27 <boily> “The IBM System/370 could be considered the first simple 128-bit computer, as it used 128-bit floating-point registers.” ― https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/128-bit
00:24:17 <boily> Wikipédia lists 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 32, 34, 36, 39, 40, 48, 50, 60 and 64-bit architectures.
00:24:52 <boily> there are also weird oddities here and there, at least one 6-trit architecture, and a bunch of decimal digit archs.

01:01:47 -!- tromp has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
01:08:25 <fizzie> I don't think the Dreamcast is any more "128 bit" as x86 SIMDy things.
01:09:13 <fizzie> It's got a plain old-fashioned 32-bit SH-4 CPU, and a "four 32-bit floats" SIMD thing.
01:09:36 <fizzie> Although I'm sure that's good enough to use the term "128-bit" in marketing.
01:09:43 <DHeadshot> Huh. I was always told that it and the PS2 were 128-bit...
01:09:51 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
01:09:52 <shachaf> What does it mean to be n-bit?
01:10:05 <DHeadshot> Traditionally, n-bit databus
01:10:06 <fizzie> If it was, then I'm typing this on a 256-bit system.
01:10:27 <DHeadshot> though if that was true, serial computers would be 1-bit...
01:11:26 <DHeadshot> And the original PC would be 8-bit (time division multiplexed 16-bit)
01:13:03 <fizzie> "With no further qualification, a 64-bit computer architecture generally has integer and addressing processor registers that are 64 bits wide, allowing direct support for 64-bit data types and addresses. However, a CPU might have external data buses or address buses with different sizes from the registers, even larger (the 32-bit Pentium had a 64-bit data bus, for instance[2]). The term may ...
01:13:09 <fizzie> ... also refer to the size of low-level data types, such as 64-bit floating-point numbers."
01:13:26 <fizzie> That seems to be the Wikipedia definition, which is relevant for that list above.
01:14:16 <DHeadshot> x86 is a weird one, because the smallest registers are 8 bit and the biggest up to 64 bit
01:14:49 <boily> x86 is a whole nother of weirdness.
01:15:31 <DHeadshot> The HD6303 had 2 8-bit accumulators that could be combined into a 16-bit accumulator, just as the 8086 had with AH/AL/AX, yet the HD6303 was described as 8-bit...
01:15:40 <shachaf> x86 is 80-bit at least
01:15:45 <shachaf> Or is that only x87?
01:16:10 <DHeadshot> shachaf: same thing since the pentium...
01:16:28 <shachaf> So x means 5 or more?
01:16:47 <DHeadshot> ?
01:18:32 <fizzie> The definition did say "integer and addressing".
01:19:27 <shachaf> I was just looking at the last sentence.
01:19:55 <DHeadshot> The HD6303 had a 16-bit index register, a 16-bit address bus and with it's combined 16-bit accumulator is as much 16 bit as the 8086, surely?
01:20:20 <fizzie> Z80 is in the same camp.
01:20:30 <fizzie> Yet everyone counts it as 8-bit.
01:20:36 <fizzie> Well, many people, anyway.
01:21:26 <DHeadshot> Z80 had no 16-bit accumulator. Neither did the 6502. The HD6303 did.
01:23:47 * DHeadshot has been reading a lot about the HD6303X recently...
01:24:55 <fizzie> What do you mean, no 16-bit accumulator?
01:25:02 <fizzie> It can do a lot of stuff 16-bit.
01:25:28 <fizzie> Including adding things.
01:25:55 <DHeadshot> Z80 has an 8-bit accumulator and 6 8-bit general purpose registers that can be paired to be 16-bit
01:26:13 <fizzie> That's a ridiculous distinction.
01:26:24 <fizzie> You can increment a 16-bit register pair.
01:26:26 -!- zzo38 has joined.
01:26:29 <DHeadshot> they aren't accumulators technically
01:28:19 -!- tromp has joined.
01:29:56 <fizzie> Sure, you can't do everything with them, but AIUI, you can't do everything on the 16-bit pair of the HD6303 either.
01:30:23 <DHeadshot> perhaps
01:30:39 * DHeadshot crawls back into his hole
01:31:48 <fizzie> Admittedly even the Z80 user manual reserves the "accumulator" term for A. I just think it's a little silly.
01:32:36 <DHeadshot> A had functionality not afforded to the other registers, just as AX has over BX, CX and DX...
01:34:18 <fizzie> C has unique functionality as well, and it doesn't get a catchy name.
01:34:22 <fizzie> Time for a petition.
01:34:49 <fizzie> ("IN r, (C)" and "OUT (C), r".)
01:35:01 <DHeadshot> Is it accumulating functionality though?
01:35:34 <DHeadshot> In x86, they all have names: Accumulator, Base register, Counter and Data register...
01:35:49 <fizzie> HL serves as the "16-bit accumulator", arguably.
01:35:59 <DHeadshot> Possibly
01:36:21 <zzo38> I don't know much Z80 programming; I know the 6502 programming though, which has A, X, and Y register, and the operations available on each are different (although some operations are available for more than one of them or for all of them).
01:37:00 <DHeadshot> I thought the 6502 had a B too? Or is that just the 6800 on which it was based?
01:37:40 <zzo38> 6502 has no B register
01:37:55 <DHeadshot> Maybe processors are just too different to conform to our taxonomies...
01:38:19 <DHeadshot> and with that, it's 1:40 AM here. I'm off to bed.
01:38:28 <zzo38> Although the video processor instruction set in a computer design I made has A and B registers (each 8-bits), it is somewhat based on 6502 but there are many differences.
01:43:08 -!- DHeadshot has quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds).
01:47:16 <fizzie> The TI TMS320C54xx series of DSPs has two accumulators, A and B, each 40 bits wide. (In addition, it has 8 16-bit auxiliary registers AR0 to AR7, and one 16-bit temporary register T.)
01:48:02 <fizzie> I think people call it a 16-bit DSP, even though it's got those 40-bit accumulators.
01:48:04 <zzo38> O, OK I did not know that, now I do
01:48:38 <fizzie> The memory is word-addressilble with a word size of 16, so probably that's fair.

09:42:40 <oerjan> mrelloman
09:43:08 <mroman> It's probably time for cgi.hs to display a textarea instead of a one line input box :D
09:45:38 <int-e> hdbc, seriously?
09:47:46 <mroman> oh
09:47:51 <mroman> I can make that conditionally
09:47:56 <mroman> so you don't need it when building without IO
09:48:02 <mroman> unless that was a complaint about HDBC itself
09:48:07 <mroman> but yes
09:48:14 <mroman> need it for MySQL
09:48:19 <mroman> Burlesque can now do DB stuff
09:48:20 <mroman> \o/
09:48:55 <int-e> setup: The program 'mysql_config' is required but it could not be found <--- hdbc-mysql doesn't build without mysql, so making that optional would be a good idea, I think
09:52:16 <int-e> (and I expect it'll want the mysql client library as well... just didn't get to that point)
09:52:54 <mroman> ok
09:52:58 <mroman> then i'll add some more ifdefs
09:57:07 <mroman> ok. pull and try again.
09:59:05 <mroman> need MySQL so I can write websites in it .
09:59:23 <mroman> I'm not planning on it.
10:00:13 <mroman> (and the support is lousy. Not all data types are even mapped)
10:00:28 <mroman> (Burlesque is lousy. The code is so underdocumented and garbage)
10:00:44 <mroman> (There's like runStack, runStack' and runStack'' and I have no idea what they were all for :D)
10:01:18 <mroman> the way to maintain Burlesque is to ignore all the crapiness and just keep adding stuff.
10:01:43 <mroman> If you don't know what existing stuff exactly does, don't change it, just add more stuff even if it's redundant :D
10:01:56 <int-e> . o O ( where "Burlesque" is a placeholder for any of 99% of all software projects on Earth )
10:02:45 <mroman> http://codepad.org/bILXgFqW <- it know even has better syntax
10:02:50 <mroman> like procedures and stuff
10:03:05 <mroman> but it's just hacked on top of stuff that was hacked on top of some other stuff
10:04:27 <int-e> just say you're building your code on top of an existing framework.
10:04:33 <mroman> but in theory
10:04:47 <mroman> you could now create wrapper procs for all builtins
10:04:54 <mroman> like proc reverse { <- } proc add { ?+ }
10:04:55 <mroman> etc.
10:05:02 <mroman> and it would start to look like a decent language :D
10:05:29 <mroman> also javascript style objects are already on the way
10:05:30 <mroman> :D
10:05:50 <mroman> now that I have I/O I can go completely nuts
10:06:38 <mroman> like mutable hashmaps
10:07:19 <mroman> and this point I'm sure to win "crappiest language on earth" AND "crappiest implementation on earth"
10:07:27 <mroman> *at this
10:08:02 <mroman> but hey
10:08:05 <mroman> 2012 - 2017
10:08:09 <mroman> Burlesque is 5 years old!
10:08:27 <mroman> so we have 5 years of experience and 5 years of supporting customers!
10:08:39 <mroman> and not yet one customer has ever complained
10:08:55 <int-e> anyway it builds... and I've updated it on the VM
10:09:00 <mroman> yay :)
10:09:38 <mroman> so I guess I can update the link on my website
10:10:05 <int-e> I had an old version of the cgi there anyway, but I guess you saw that
10:10:50 <mroman> yep
10:11:17 <mroman> I actually use blsq
10:11:20 <mroman> %in? ln{WD^p'/;;[~'-;;-]{}j_+j_+ri}m[ ><{0!!j0!!==}gb{J0!!0!!j)[~++@1024?/@1024?/@1024?/{}j_+j+]}m[sp
10:11:24 <mroman> that's some code I wrote today
10:11:51 <mroman> to parse some log file with file sizes
10:13:04 <oerjan> . o O ( you should make a build system in it, right \oren\ ? )
10:13:57 <mroman> there was a directory with files in it and I need to copy them to some other system through another system and there's not enough space on disk to do it in a whole bunch
10:14:15 <mroman> so the code above groups the files into "groups of files" and their file sizes
10:14:25 <mroman> so I know how/what I can copy them

17:01:10 <b_jonas> \oren\: I think that's because Jeeves is like some nickname for some common given name in American or something
17:01:22 <b_jonas> or not
17:01:40 <b_jonas> hmm
17:01:53 <Taneb> There was a search engine called Ask Jeeves
17:02:09 <Taneb> After the PG Wodehouse character from Jeeves and Wooster, famously played by Stephen Fry
17:03:16 <\oren\> Taneb: I only remember the toolbar, which was really hard to uninstall, you had to delete fiels and registry keys manually

17:09:05 <\oren\> wow you'd think microsoft would sanction skype for doing that crap
17:09:15 <b_jonas> it's worse than that web-based mailing list archive viewer they used to have on the gnu servers, which thought that if an at sign followed by a letter anywhere in the text of the mail, then it totally has to remove the surrounding part of the text for "spam protection" just in case it's an email address. mangles source code (especially perl) snippets you post on the mailing list unreadable through the archives.
17:09:42 <b_jonas> \oren\: how is microsoft involved? this was before microsoft bought skype, and the plugin applies for the firefox browser
17:10:01 <b_jonas> I think the firefox devs eventually broke the auto-enabler though

17:25:13 <\oren\> so maybe a rogue graphic artist wanted to spread good icons around
17:25:21 <\oren\> b_jonas: let me check
17:25:39 <Zarutian> that I have seen but advertising it? Though it might be that the author(s) wanted to spread those cursors and icons and used the advertising revenue from the download page ads to pay for their own ads.

17:34:52 <b_jonas> zzo38: since you're here, let me repeat what I tried to say from earlier
17:35:16 <zzo38> b_jonas: OK. Maybe I missed it before
17:35:28 <b_jonas> zzo38: In M:tG, remember I complained how the phrasing of the Spreading Seas ability is really opaque, and I suggested a reworded ability could make the enchanted land be a copy of a template pristine Island straight from the Gatherer?
17:35:33 <b_jonas> I just found a precedent for that: Peacekeeper Avatar (Vanguard) http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=182281 works that way.
17:36:29 <b_jonas> Now mind you, that might not mean much, because there's also the Momir Vig avatar card that creates a copy of a random creature card from all the cards available in the format or something
17:36:33 <zzo38> OK, but I think that way isn't very good.
17:36:42 <b_jonas> ok
17:36:45 <zzo38> (nor is the Momir Vig avatar, actually.)
17:37:00 <b_jonas> oh sure
17:37:13 <b_jonas> but that's a different problem
17:37:17 <zzo38> Effects should not depend on the database.
17:37:28 <ais523> b_jonas: IMO the phrasing should be "Enchanted land is an Island with '{T}: add {U} to your mana pool' and no other abilities"
17:37:44 <ais523> (note: this would work under the current rules but would be redundant; however it would allow the rules to be simplified)
17:37:47 <b_jonas> ais523: that doesn't work
17:37:52 <zzo38> ais523: I don't really like that either though.
17:37:57 <ais523> b_jonas: why not?
17:38:02 <b_jonas> ais523: wouldn't that apply the ability removal too high in the layers?
17:38:38 <ais523> it doesn't matter what the layer sequence is, because the "no other abilities" doesn't remove the ability that Spreading Seas grants itself due to the word "other"
17:38:46 <b_jonas> as in, wouldn't it remove abilities added by eg. Urborg, Tomb?

17:39:11 <ais523> b_jonas: oh, I wasn't trying to replicate the exact current interactions of the card with other cards
17:39:11 <b_jonas> ais523: no, I mean, it would remove too many abilities
17:39:23 <b_jonas> ais523: I didn't try to _exactly_ replicate it either
17:39:27 <b_jonas> just close enoguh to rarely make a difference
17:39:50 <b_jonas> copying a land on it differs too, eg. it would turn Dryad Arbor to a noncreature
17:40:19 <b_jonas> hmm
17:40:26 <zzo38> The subtype gives it the implicit ability "{T}: Add {U} to your mana pool" (i.e. that ability does not come directly from its text). I think that "normal Island" or something like that would work better to not change it too much.
17:40:33 <ais523> it wouldn't make Dryad Arbor a noncreature, it doesn't change permanent types
17:40:51 <b_jonas> ais523: no, I mean _my_ copying solution would turn Dryad Arbor to a noncreature
17:40:54 <ais523> fwiw, I think Islands should have an explicit ability "{T}: add {U} to your mana pool"
17:41:00 <ais523> b_jonas: ah right
17:42:05 <b_jonas> ais523: explicit as in not granted by the subtype?
17:42:13 <ais523> yes
17:42:19 <ais523> printed on the card, too!
17:42:58 <b_jonas> and you're not saying this only because the first printed versions of them had them printed, right? (I have some Fourth Edition Islands in fact).
17:43:18 <alercah> nah, don't need to print it on the card
17:44:24 <b_jonas> I don't really know if they should have an explicit ability, but if they would, I think it might be better if the rules said that the big mana symbol in the text box represents that ability, rather than printing the text.
17:44:35 <ais523> b_jonas: the first printed versions likely followed the same reasoning I am
17:44:48 <ais523> apparently they thought the giant mana symbol version was less confusing for new players
17:44:58 <ais523> although this has lead to a lot of players thinking that llanowar elves was some sort of tutor
17:45:23 <b_jonas> Printing the ability certainly makes teaching beginners easier (there's always beginners who keep confusing lands with mana), but it's distracting for later players, because basic lands are so common and so varied in appearance that the giant mana symbol makes them easier to recognize. You don't have to spend time reading the ability.
17:45:35 <ais523> hmm, maybe I should get the rules for my TCG that shachaf keeps pestering me about finished
17:45:41 <ais523> I had a fairly neat fix for this sort of issue
17:45:45 <b_jonas> "apparently they thought the giant mana symbol version was less confusing for new players" -- what? really?
17:45:48 <b_jonas> no way
17:45:57 <\oren\> I've updated the allchars.txt to include a count of non-hangul
17:46:49 <b_jonas> ais523: um... most TCGs don't have land cards producing mana, so the whole problem doesn't even come up. besides, it's easier to fix these things when you don't have to be compatible with, what, 20 years of history.
17:46:55 <b_jonas> \oren\: oh nice! thanks
17:47:48 <b_jonas> \oren\: wow, 20000 is a lot
17:47:57 <int-e> . o O ( Turing-Complete Game )
17:48:32 <b_jonas> int-e: I don't think a newly defined trading card game would likely be turing complete
17:48:34 <ais523> int-e: like M:tG, you mean? :-)
17:48:44 <int-e> ais523: exactly.
17:48:47 <ais523> b_jonas: it's typically only a matter of the right cards being printed
17:48:49 <b_jonas> it takes lots of expansions to get enough crazy cards for that
17:48:53 <b_jonas> ais523: yeah
17:48:54 <ais523> in theory you could have a card that's Turing-complete by itself
17:48:58 <b_jonas> well sure
17:48:59 -!- hppavilion2 has joined.
17:49:09 <b_jonas> but most games don't aim for that
17:49:41 <ais523> http://esolangs.org/wiki/Subtractpocalypse was inspired by FTL's scripting system, for what it's worth
17:49:58 <ais523> although that only has four variables, and the TCness proof needs more
17:50:15 <b_jonas> and I think some games actively try to avoid infinite resource completion by some resource ranking, so that every game ends in a finite time, and the game tree is limited by a smallish ordinal
17:51:51 <b_jonas> resource ranking as in some ordering of the kinds of resources such that you can get any of a kind of resource only by spending some of a resource that's greater in the ordering, and every resource is quantized so you can only have natural number of amounts of them

18:27:15 <fizzie> Let me flip the DNS then.
18:28:28 <zzo38> I think that Islands should not have the explicit ability "{T}: Add {U} into your mana pool", but it should have that printed as reminder text.
18:28:54 <zzo38> (Except for special versions with flavor text, which would omit the reminder text)
18:29:32 <int-e> do they still make those lands with just the name and artwork?
18:31:21 <ais523> int-e: they save them for special occasions
18:31:28 <ais523> the last time was Battle for Zendikar block
18:32:16 <ais523> which is widely regarded as one of the worst blocks to be released recently; they used full-art lands and Masterpiece cards in an attempt to get people to buy it anyway
18:32:50 <ais523> worst both in terms of undesirable cards and bad internal balance/playability
18:34:00 <fizzie> In retrospect, I should've set a TTL of less than a day for the temporary name.
18:34:11 <fizzie> Now it'll take a day again to propagate to.
18:34:23 <ais523> I tend to use 5-minute TTLs if there's any chance that I might need to change it in the near future
18:34:35 <fizzie> That would've been reasonable.

18:41:00 <int-e> oerjan: I did. I can still query nameservers ;-)
18:41:41 <\oren\> I made a program to run every iteration of a long shell script to show it hasn't frozen
18:41:52 <\oren\> http://orenwatson.be/stars.c.htm
18:42:20 <oerjan> hm, there should be a way to ask a nameserver to drop a name from cache.
18:42:29 <\oren\> it displays a random goofy unicode symbol each second
18:43:12 <\oren\> if the symbol keeps changing, the script hasn't frozen
18:43:30 <int-e> oerjan: tricky, on whose authority?
18:43:56 <oerjan> int-e: there might be some throttling, in which case it should be harmless...
18:44:35 <int-e> oerjan: I'm trying to figure out whether this would simplify dns cache poisoning or make it harder.
18:44:38 <oerjan> hm except that might DOS the central one.

18:45:05 -!- augur has joined.
18:45:24 <int-e> (but I suspect that overall it would make it simpler... and yes there's a potential DoS vector there)

18:53:43 <\oren\> the solution to DoS is to use DOS
18:55:08 -!- hppavilion2 has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
18:55:24 <ais523> on Wikipedia, the only throttling used to be that "drop cache" requests had to be sent by POST unless you were logged in
18:55:31 <ais523> (to prevent them being hit by accident by spiders)
18:55:45 <ais523> it wouldn't surprise me if they added a CAPTCHA to it though
18:56:56 <\oren\> Hmm, maybe I'll write a Jelly interpreter in C
18:57:26 <quintopia> b_jonas: before i had to reboot, it seemed you were talking about game designer intentionally building hydrae out of resources. any evidence of that?
18:58:50 -!- hppavilion2 has joined.
18:59:11 <wob_jonas> quintopia: hydrae in what sense? I don't understand
18:59:17 <wob_jonas> oh, that sort of hydrae
19:01:54 <wob_jonas> quintopia: the only direct evidence I have is the Irregulars' goldfish cube, where the writeup tells it was designed that way:
19:02:04 <ais523> \oren\: make sure you use a bignum library, it's fairly important to many Jelly programs
19:03:14 <wob_jonas> http://www.mezzacotta.net/magic/goldfish/Cube_Design.html
19:04:31 <wob_jonas> quintopia: but I think to some amount the thought is there in M:tG design too, even if they don't completely insist on it. and sometimes they change the ordering, eg. recently they decided you can't just sacrifice your permanents for free in newer sets, despite that old sets have a lot of abilities with just sacrificing a creature as a cost,
19:05:00 <wob_jonas> so they're effectively moving sacrificing stuff up in the ordering, and can let you gain resources from stuff dying more easily
19:05:36 <wob_jonas> quintopia: even at the basic level, cards generally want to move in the order library -> hand -> stack -> battlefield -> graveyard -> exile and less often backwards, which is a form of this

07:32:53 <izabera> qsort is a generic function
07:33:13 <izabera> it's never faster than any alternative
07:33:37 <izabera> calling an indirect function instead of cmp is too expensive
07:38:02 <\oren\> izabera: ok, but at what point does a sorting network become less efficient than an algorithm where ther sequence of comparisons is not fixed?

14:12:00 <VisualizeR> hi boily, thanks for having me.
14:22:46 <int-e> so polite
14:22:49 <int-e> fungot: help!
14:22:49 <fungot> int-e: not running os x, you don't ever *have* to do that.
14:29:12 <boily> VisualizeR: what brings you here? do you like esolanging? what is your stance about roast beef?
14:30:25 <VisualizeR> I'm designing games, so I'm an artist. but I figured this is more about programming which I'm not so good at. roast beef is fine once in a month but I wouldn't want to have it any day.
14:31:18 <boily> nice! yes, this is about programming, at least the moments it is about programming...
14:32:02 <VisualizeR> haha yeah its always good to tunnel and come back some place and socialize, right?
14:33:46 <VisualizeR> I just set up freenode and the user count in the list was promising. so..is this about esoterics or not? and if so how is it connected to order information? does it help to shape benefitial thought patterns? what is the goal?
14:36:15 <boily> esoteric programming is fringe programming. it is exploring the limits of its meaning through creativity, poetry, absurdity and mental ankle sprains.
14:38:00 <VisualizeR> I'm aware of what esoterics is but I don't see how that helps in developing an efficient language. a coder might understand a side joke you put in there on purpose, but the computer running it doesn't.
14:40:17 <boily> we don't usually care about efficiency, just possibility. of course we sometimes discuss about regular languages.
14:41:40 <boily> there are a few mathematicians in this channel, a bunch of software developers, many bots, one cyborg, and fungot.
14:41:41 <fungot> boily: it would need bindings to c++ and see what happens? did you try to index it out of two apples, a roll of string and a piece of functional perl: perl -e ' print &&sub my f shift; return sub my n shift; return 1 if n 2; return &&f(f)(n-1) &&f(f)(n-2); )(8), " deep copies" and " after

14:44:36 <HackEgo> Puns are fun. Ask shachaf about them. But beware of Muphry adding misspellings.
14:44:53 <VisualizeR> I see, you're meta philosophising about how it should be and how to get there. in order to make possibilities graspable I'd always try to visualize them. So personally I think visual coding is the best way to achieve permutations when you already set up a system. the end user should be able to operate it at will and create them.

14:50:58 <myname> technically correct
14:51:09 <nooga> well, I thought about this recently and it occured to me that programming can be seen as just "instructing machines to take information from one abstract place, transform it and then put it in another abstract place"
14:51:53 <myname> your point being?
14:52:16 <nooga> but there are no constraints on the form of information and the machines at all
14:52:58 <VisualizeR> yup basically like ribosomes copying snippets of dna to form proteins, translation and transcription
14:53:22 -!- tromp has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
14:53:50 <nooga> for instance, yes
14:54:03 -!- tromp has joined.
14:56:43 -!- LKoen has joined.
14:59:17 <nooga> so then, visual programming is just another notation that helps people to think about what goes where and how the computation looks like
14:59:47 <nooga> but there are machines all the way down
15:00:41 <VisualizeR> they're just tools that compute faster
15:01:51 <nooga> but you can do that without any special "visual language"
15:02:17 <VisualizeR> a modular system that allows for combinations is the best system to have in my eyes. sure it only involves everything within system, bus this is why you need to made sure it has support for extentions.
15:02:50 <VisualizeR> the general user doesn't know about coding, they're used to moving a mouse and clicking stuff
15:04:15 <boily> functional programming is about that: transforming functions into other functions, and composing those functions together. it lends pretty well to visual and dataflow programming.
15:04:17 <VisualizeR> i'm thinking about better ways to teach kids programming right from the start because it can help them way better in the world we're heading to.
15:04:56 <boily> I think Lego NXT is the best effort out there to engage the next generation with programming.
15:05:54 <nooga> functional

15:07:12 <nooga> I like minecraft, especially the tech mods
15:07:44 <VisualizeR> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NN5mQxX-Zd0 I'm thinking about this game called codespells. they did it very well
15:08:24 <nooga> it's great stuff, it can teach you how to design scalable, distributed systems without ever mentioning it
15:10:05 <nooga> one problem with visual programming systems, such as puredata, is that eventually you end up with an unholy mess of wires
15:11:24 <nooga> and usually they don't implement any kind of metaprogramming facilities
15:12:49 <VisualizeR> isn't this regular capsuling of scripts?
15:12:50 <nooga> which is hard to visualise because it suddenly needs more dimensions
15:13:17 <nooga> yes, that's one dimension
15:14:19 <nooga> but how about having a block that can transform and spawn given subgraps and is programmed visually itself?
15:15:10 <VisualizeR> simply open up another type of scripts for every within that subsystem
15:15:31 <VisualizeR> *object
15:16:19 -!- Zarutian has joined.
15:17:41 <nooga> I'm not sure if that would be enough to go meta
15:20:56 <VisualizeR> it has to be self-sustaining, be relevant as a program and on top of that it can influence society. that is the meta level, so there needs to be hubs on each section branching to the subsystems depending on the desired content
15:21:11 <nooga> as for the kids... there should be something like "SICP for kids"

15:26:05 <nooga> and gives you something that laymen see as a superpower

15:27:27 -!- adu has quit (Quit: adu).
15:30:25 <VisualizeR> personally I think the biggest problem nowadays is we have too much freedom on one hand and too little of it on the other. it would require teaching them why it is beneficial. it needs something like an entry drug and games are perfect for that. this is about having one option or many to choose from and most people stick to one thing after they have found "their" thing.
15:32:19 <VisualizeR> so when you talk to people about why they should use this particular language you use and why they should too this is like talknig about religion or other products. our personal view biases us into limiting our own view. we like to go to the biggest system around and simply go with it. I know this doesn't apply to you guys.
15:32:23 <VisualizeR> just saying that it is free will if people choose to have one or many options

15:53:39 <mroman> I think visual programming is great for domain specific things.
15:54:40 <mroman> but anyway
15:54:46 <mroman> the difficulty in programming is not the way you do it.
15:54:54 <mroman> whether it's a graphical language or a non-graphical one
15:55:05 <mroman> A for loop is a for loop.
15:56:36 <VisualizeR> who decides that the logic used within is the best there is?
15:58:18 <mroman> http://codepad.org/snRrxLzj <- there
15:58:26 <mroman> that's the transcript from the codespells video
15:58:38 <mroman> aside that there are no blue, pink, green boxes around the text
15:58:41 <mroman> it's literally the same thing.
15:59:19 <mroman> it's just a fancier way of displaying text.
15:59:22 <mroman> that's pretty much it.
16:00:10 <VisualizeR> that is exactly what is needed ^^ synesthetics help to differentiate content
16:00:26 <VisualizeR> *synaesthesia
16:00:49 <boily> VisualizeR: people who write compilers and core libraries decide what is, within a given programming language, the Best Way To Do Things™.
16:01:13 <VisualizeR> i totally understood what you mean tho, the logic is the same but the presentation differs
16:01:16 <mroman> and what boily said
16:01:25 <mroman> people don't decide what language to use on the language.
16:01:34 <mroman> they decide it on the language's ecosystems.
16:01:54 <mroman> because most languages are pretty much the same, same powerful so language differences are mostly completely irrelevant.
16:01:57 <boily> the semantic of what you write is independent of the actual physical process that happens in your machine. what mroman said: a for loop is a for loop.
16:02:09 <mroman> the only real constraints anymore are memory management and type safety
16:02:56 <VisualizeR> so they're like different tools, each one is best for a specific task
16:03:08 <mroman> languages?
16:03:09 <mroman> no.
16:03:27 <mroman> you can translate pretty much any language easily into any other language
16:03:36 <mroman> you can easily translate perl to python, python to ruby, ruby to php
16:03:38 <mroman> no problem.
16:04:07 <boily> all mainstream languages are (almost) mathematically equivalent. it's just the subjective ease you can describe a task in a programming language that will differ from another one.
16:04:12 <VisualizeR> so what is best for the ecosystem then?
16:04:24 <mroman> these languages are mostly only different in syntax
16:04:30 <mroman> and syntax is easy to "translate"
16:04:33 <VisualizeR> yep got that
16:04:55 <mroman> the problem is that you can't translate library calls because they don't have the same libraries.
16:05:16 <VisualizeR> this makes some languages more efficient in certain tasks, right?
16:05:40 <mroman> although to be fair they have different OOP so some edge-cases are probably a bit harder to translate
16:05:42 <boily> you're always building upon previous work. a task may be easier in one language because some guy did the grunt work for you.
16:05:59 <mroman> but these details aren't really what you decide on which languages you should use.
16:06:10 <mroman> Why do people use PHP for webdev?
16:06:15 <mroman> very simple.
16:06:21 <mroman> because it's installed everywhere on free hosters.
16:06:23 -!- adu has joined.
16:06:27 <LKoen> because they don't know about javascript
16:06:38 <mroman> why do people use javascript for webdev?
16:06:43 <mroman> because there's no other language available.
16:06:59 -!- tromp has joined.
16:07:20 <mroman> people mostly use python because it has a HUGE set of packages available
16:08:13 <mroman> so good ecosystem means
16:08:30 <mroman> a.) lots of packages b.) lots of bindings to c libraries (such as gtk, databases, etc. etc.)
16:09:01 <mroman> In python i can do import rest; rest.call('/method', blurks);
16:09:12 <mroman> but that's not because of python it's because somebody took the time to write a nice package
16:09:23 <mroman> in haskell I'd probably have to set up http requests manually and stuff like that
16:09:34 <VisualizeR> so the most important part are those core libraries which define the functions the language will have. it probably is a child of the time and can't possibily fit any future needs, right? so it is about keeping it alive and up to date.
16:09:39 <mroman> so if I just want to do some rest request I'll probably use python, even though I don't like python as a language.
16:10:21 <boily> VisualizeR: core libraries are in constant fluctuation. active development is perpetual, to fix security bugs, add new features, optimize stuff...
16:10:25 <mroman> in the prof. java/js scene it's more about frameworks even
16:10:30 <mroman> you don't look for a javascript developer
16:10:31 <mroman> nope
16:10:37 <mroman> you look for somebody who knows angular
16:10:44 <mroman> or whatever your company is using.

16:12:42 <mroman> because the kid knows shit about algorithms and math and science
16:13:29 <VisualizeR> exactly this is why a game is good, it can see the strength of the avatar change with the numbers
16:13:37 <mroman> the only point I could agree on is that visual programming might make kids more motivitated to code
16:13:43 <mroman> but not because it makes it any easier or different
16:13:50 <mroman> but because it looks more interesting to little kids
16:13:57 <VisualizeR> true, I agree

16:16:33 <VisualizeR> ^^
16:17:10 <mroman> the existence of that function is much more important than the language.
16:17:21 <mroman> or IDE
16:17:23 <mroman> or editor
16:17:24 <VisualizeR> I'm rather in need of procedual textures combined with procedual music and a detection of the music the manipulate the textures and animations with

16:17:34 <VisualizeR> *that
16:19:53 <mroman> that's why you can teach people to write apps
16:20:07 <mroman> without teaching them anything about algorithms and stuff
16:20:10 <mroman> no need to know
16:20:57 <mroman> which is good. I don't oppose that. but I still think anything related to visual programming is too hyped
16:21:35 <mroman> most people used vb6 because it had an UI to write GUI code.
16:22:01 <mroman> that's a useful application of "visual programming" but it's very domain specific.
16:22:24 <VisualizeR> like you initially said
16:23:15 <mroman> what's also a good use is to have some model you can visually create and then write codegenerators for that
16:23:32 <mroman> CIRO or whatever that was called
16:23:47 <mroman> you can describe state machines in that, then generate the code for it.
16:24:04 <mroman> then you only need to write code to read/write from pins/io ports manually
16:24:12 <mroman> i.e. used for embedded systems
16:24:36 <mroman> that's also a good application for "visual programming" but also domain specific as it's limited to state machines and i/o systems

16:32:41 <int-e> mroman: *poof*
16:32:48 <mroman> you can send a windows guy a bat file del /S %HOME%/Documents
16:32:51 <mroman> if he double clicks it
16:32:52 <mroman> he's fucked
16:33:01 <mroman> that's how good security is on modern operating systems.
16:33:07 <int-e> does / work for \ there?
16:33:13 <mroman> probably not
16:33:14 <mroman> :D
16:33:20 <mroman> my admin days are behind me
16:33:35 <mroman> It works in some cases
16:33:52 <mroman> but that's probably python/java secretly translating / to \
16:34:01 <int-e> I encountered http://www.ranum.com/security/computer_security/editorials/dumb/ these days, fun to read.
16:34:18 <mroman> if you have a bug in Word.exe
16:34:21 <mroman> it can delete all your documents
16:34:25 <mroman> I don't call that security.
16:34:41 <mroman> I have talked with people at work about how to solve the problem
16:34:49 <mroman> but they just laughed at me and told me "It'll never happen"
16:34:53 <mroman> and I guess they are right.
16:35:01 <mroman> There's no money in security apparentely
16:35:12 <int-e> right
16:35:18 <int-e> there's money in selling AV products
16:35:25 <mroman> yeah
16:35:27 <nooga> sigh
16:35:29 <mroman> but that's a crappy solution to the problem.
16:35:40 <int-e> it's not a solution
16:35:43 <int-e> it's just crap.
16:35:53 <nooga> I remember the times when you got a CIH on a floppy with pirated game and it fried your motherboard
16:36:02 <mroman> they've been bragging about heuristics for 10 years now
16:36:03 <nooga> these were the viruses
16:36:04 <mroman> or even more
16:36:11 <mroman> a.) it doesn't work
16:36:16 <mroman> b.) even if it would: it's a crappy solution.
16:36:22 <nooga> nowadays it's just spyware, ransomware and crapware
16:36:28 <nooga> disgusting
16:36:54 <mroman> I want fine grained permissions per process and user etc.
16:37:02 <mroman> and software needs to drop privileges
16:37:08 <mroman> so it's only working with minimal privileges.
16:37:16 <nooga> do you?
16:37:23 <mroman> if you open word foo.doc
16:37:24 <nooga> it just means more management
16:37:33 <mroman> you need to drop all privileges except to that file
16:37:38 <mroman> do I what?
16:37:43 <mroman> No OS currently supports this.
16:37:50 <nooga> < mroman> I want fine grained permissions per process and user etc.
16:37:53 <int-e> http://robert.ocallahan.org/2017/01/disable-your-antivirus-software-except.html was another nice article; https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/03/security_threat_solutions/?mt=1486125905262 is also relevant.
16:37:57 <mroman> I want that yes.
16:38:08 <nooga> how would that look like in practice?
16:38:15 <mroman> but it means you gonna have to start from scratch and design an OS with security in mind SINCE THE START.
16:38:35 <mroman> nooga: a.) you configure what parts of the filesystem a process can even see etc.
16:38:38 <mroman> very fine grained.
16:38:43 <mroman> you have security contexts
16:38:50 <mroman> you can narrow a securyt contexts
16:38:53 <nooga> and one day some smart kid will crack even this
16:39:44 <int-e> mroman: you're right in principle, but a key question is how to make all this usable and understandable for laypeople.
16:39:47 <Zarutian> mroman: hmm.. design an OS with security in mind from the start? Have you heard about capros?
16:40:07 * Zarutian is just catching up.
16:40:29 <mroman> int-e: Well the problem is I don't give a fuck about laypeople.
16:40:32 <nooga> what about unikernels? maybe just box up every application
16:40:33 <int-e> (though I guess a lot could be done by versioned file systems that allow people to go back in time?)
16:40:36 <mroman> If software developers would do a better job it would work
16:40:44 <nooga> and run them in a hypervisor
16:40:44 <mroman> but if they do a crappy job then FUCK them.
16:40:59 <int-e> (which is quite different from what you're suggesting, of course)
16:41:03 <mroman> just look at all the crappy windows installers out there and shit.
16:41:18 <nooga> do they still exist?
16:41:27 <int-e> and perhaps executing programs should be a more privileged operation...
16:42:17 <int-e> but basically most of the programs are written for embedded devices (which we're just starting to perceive as an attack surface) and consumer devices (which are sold by usability, not security)... we're, essentially, doomed.
16:42:20 <nooga> (last time I've used windows was in 2008)
16:43:03 <mroman> http://codepad.org/pbo1ADdF <- like that
16:43:08 <mroman> security contexts are like stacks or something
16:43:14 <mroman> you can always drop privileges
16:43:22 <mroman> and regain them later using a regain token
16:43:40 <mroman> and you can ask for more privileges at which point the OS will ask the user whether this is ok
16:43:42 <mroman> things like that.
16:43:55 <Zarutian> int-e: depends on the level of complexity of the embedded SOC. Just using an ARM with a Windows CE or such is not allowed to be primary control in an say a milling machine.
16:44:00 <mroman> a.) you need to configure the MAXIMUM security context for a process/user
16:44:14 <mroman> b.) software needs to drop and regain privileges as necessary.
16:44:27 <nooga> so you want to put middlewares on syscalls?
16:44:30 <Zarutian> mroman: congrats you just reinvented the "Mother may I?" problem that plaques systems such as seLinux
16:44:43 <nooga> Zarutian: XD
16:44:57 <mroman> Zarutian: What do you mean by that?
16:45:20 <mroman> and linux is crap anyway
16:45:24 <mroman> to heterogenous.
16:45:26 * Zarutian is part of rather long lived discussion group that has thought and written extensively about these matters.
16:45:46 <mroman> by which I mean the distros.
16:46:28 <nooga> I stopped worrying and learned to love OS X because it doesn't need anything from me and I just want emacs
16:46:39 <Zarutian> mroman: the "Mother may I?" problem? basically from your utterence of the phrase "at which point the OS will ask the user whether this is ok"
16:47:40 <mroman> well there's not really a way to avoid that.
16:47:51 <Zarutian> is there not hmm?
16:48:06 <mroman> the user decides what software can access which parts of his stuff.
16:48:13 <mroman> but
16:48:19 <Zarutian> think about "dont seperate designation and authority" for a bit and what that could mean
16:48:21 <mroman> you can hide lots of this from the user
16:48:27 <mroman> for example with filechooserdialogues
16:48:34 <mroman> which grant implicit permissions to the file you selected
16:48:42 <mroman> so the user doesn't even know that this was a security feature
16:48:55 <Zarutian> does filechooserdialogues return an filehandle instead of just a path string?
16:49:06 <mroman> the difference is that it's an OS dialogue
16:49:11 <mroman> not one from the software

16:49:42 <Zarutian> mroman: hmm.. basically an instance of an pattern called PowerBox
16:50:55 <Zarutian> nooga: you nailed it
16:51:57 <mroman> nooga: and?
16:52:06 <nooga> 40 times a second
16:52:10 <mroman> so?
16:52:17 <mroman> then the software is crap
16:52:20 <mroman> or your config is wrong.
16:52:21 <nooga> so your computer is useless
16:52:40 <mroman> it's a bad idea that all processes have the same /tmp anyway
16:52:58 <int-e> <mroman> then the software is crap <--- I thought that was one of the premises
16:53:11 <nooga> you could install a hand crank on it as well
16:53:27 <mroman> I would use an abstraction layer for the fs
16:53:31 <mroman> process only see a virtual filesystem
16:53:36 <mroman> and you can map stuff into that
16:53:46 <mroman> like map /tmp/httpd /tmp
16:53:48 <nooga> IMHO this is not a good idea for consumer grade computing
16:53:52 <mroman> so httpd has a /tmp
16:54:02 <mroman> which is on the physical fs in /tmp/httpd
16:54:04 <mroman> stuff like that
16:54:08 <nooga> it could be quite cool for embedded/process control
16:54:27 <nooga> when you set up everything and just run stuff for a long periods of time
16:55:16 <mroman> well you need strict guidelines
16:55:24 <mroman> software developers will need to follow these or gtfo
16:55:33 <mroman> you need a very homogenous environment
16:55:49 <mroman> so not shitty ideas like "we call it apache2 in this distro, we call it httpd in this distro"
16:55:50 <mroman> in fact
16:55:56 <mroman> don't have multiple distros at all :p
16:56:19 <nooga> welcome to the future, NaziOS is here
16:56:34 <mroman> I'm a radical person.
16:56:35 <mroman> :D
16:56:41 <mroman> security has it's price.
16:56:44 <mroman> *its
16:56:47 <nooga> :>
16:57:12 <mroman> but if you have such an OS
16:57:16 <\oren\> Trump Linux
16:57:16 <mroman> with such strict guidelines
16:57:29 <mroman> then the software devs will also ship configuration files for their software
16:57:33 <mroman> etc.
16:57:36 <mroman> I mean
16:57:40 <mroman> if you would have sewindows
16:57:47 <mroman> you'd need months to configure it properly
16:57:55 <nooga> yup
16:58:04 <mroman> because you'd have to write config files for every single process etc.
16:58:09 <mroman> because software devs don't ship one
16:58:24 <mroman> and because their software probably does more than they want to admit
16:58:28 <int-e> here's a fun one... what is the security model of systemd?
16:58:30 <mroman> like calling home and stuff.
16:58:48 <mroman> but my opinion on that is FUCK those software then.
16:59:20 <mroman> I don't know enough about systemd internals to answer that.
16:59:30 <nooga> well, there's quite sophisticated permission system in Android
16:59:49 <nooga> you can grant and revoke access to various APIs for each app
16:59:58 <nooga> but people still click OK
17:00:05 <nooga> and don't even read that stuff
17:00:06 <mroman> nooga: it's a step in the right direction, yes.
17:00:15 <mroman> nooga: yes because if you need the software then you click OK
17:00:16 <mroman> which
17:00:18 <mroman> I mean
17:00:24 <mroman> you can't protect a user from disabling security
17:00:34 <mroman> but that shouldn't be a reason to NOT implement security.
17:00:41 <nooga> you can revoke some rights of any app at any time
17:00:49 <nooga> but then it starts nagging you
17:00:57 <mroman> setenforce 0
17:00:58 <mroman> gg.
17:01:25 <nooga> "oh you just want to take a picture? the camera app has no access to the camera, go to settings and enable"
17:01:51 <mroman> the trick is to pressure software devs into writing good nice software
17:02:46 <mroman> I don't know how this can be done.
17:03:58 <mroman> I think selling crap should be illegal :)
17:04:00 <VisualizeR> open source gets ripped off each time they push the limits
17:04:01 <mroman> but that's justme.
17:04:50 <mroman> and
17:04:59 <mroman> I think software needs warranty laws like regular products.
17:05:21 <mroman> if your software has defects, you should be legally obliged to fix those
17:05:28 <mroman> like with any other non-software product.
17:06:24 <mroman> at least if you do it commercially
17:06:30 <VisualizeR> this would mean a permanent internet connection and feedback with their server to ensure everything is within time limits
17:07:32 <VisualizeR> guess why they digitalize the industries, it still is a law free zone or lets say there are a lot of grey zones
17:09:07 <VisualizeR> next stop transhumanism, posthumanism after that
17:09:40 <VisualizeR> once the technology is in us we're a lot better to control and keep track of
17:10:44 <mroman> humans are bad at solving problems
17:10:46 <mroman> that's my impression.
17:11:07 <mroman> they like to talk about problems more than talking about solving problems :)
17:12:57 <nooga> but there's no one better
17:13:32 <mroman> ?
17:14:30 <nooga> [at solving problems]
17:15:02 <mroman> still don't follow.
17:17:29 <mroman> sometimes it seems that they aren't even aware of the options they have.
17:17:43 <mroman> in switzerland citizens have the power to change laws.
17:17:44 <mroman> so
17:17:51 <mroman> if a law is still in place after complaining for years about it
17:18:13 <mroman> then this means to me that everybody likes to complain about it, but nobody actually wants to change it.
17:18:24 <mroman> so everybody is just bullshitting.
17:18:38 <nooga> yeah, it's worse when it's the other way round
17:19:19 <nooga> when people are pissed off and protesting but government does not listen and keeps doing the opposite to what people want
17:20:02 <mroman> might be a bad political system then :)
17:20:22 <int-e> nooga: you're talking about a purely hypothetical scenario of course
17:20:35 <nooga> absolutely :P
17:21:00 <mroman> I heard a silent "Trump" there
17:21:32 <mroman> I like the "I do things" attitude.
17:21:37 <mroman> I don't necessarily like what he's up to
17:21:47 <mroman> and I don't know what he's up to.
17:21:59 <mroman> except for that ban of 7 countries
17:22:09 <mroman> that's the only thing you really read about in newspapers in switzerland.
17:22:22 <nooga> I'm not surprised by Trump, I've had samples of this stuff since last winter
17:22:45 <int-e> "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!" -- Trump
17:23:01 <nooga> yeah, samples of that as well
17:23:02 <mroman> I don't know too much about the US system :(
17:23:03 <mroman> but
17:23:05 <mroman> executive orders?
17:23:09 <mroman> sounds like legislative
17:23:28 <mroman> i.e. why the f*ck does the president have legislative rights?
17:24:23 <int-e> "l'état, c'est moi" -- Louis XIV
17:24:28 -!- AnotherTest has joined.
17:24:34 <int-e> just a totally random association
17:24:52 <nooga> mroman: yeah, this is hardcore
17:25:07 <int-e> mroman: technically his decrees cannot go against existing law
17:25:29 <int-e> so again, *technically*, you could argue that he has no legislative powers.
17:25:33 <nooga> but if you get a proesident that's in the pocket of the ruling party and paralyzed constitutional court
17:25:38 <nooga> you get the same thing
17:26:05 <int-e> practically though... he has a crazy amount of power, also because he can fire important people, veto laws and the like
17:26:40 <int-e> checks and balances...
17:27:31 <mroman> president can fire people
17:27:34 <int-e> hmm, I've read an analysis of that recently, but where... basically the conclusion was that the rights of the president was established with the underlying idea that only decent human beings would ever attain that office.
17:27:35 <mroman> that's mistake number two :)
17:28:03 <nooga> what he will do next is to convince his electorate that checks and balances are bad and set up by the previous team to impede on making the country great
17:28:28 <nooga> and attempt to dismantle them
17:29:21 <nooga> or just ignore them
17:30:15 <nooga> I've seen it happening :|
17:30:28 <int-e> I'm sure Trump will still like cheques.
17:31:44 <int-e> (another article all but suggested that Trump has a record to beat: Hitler took 5 months from assuming office as chancellor of the Weimar Republic to essentially total power over the state...)
17:34:30 <nooga> so what do I need to do to get a swiss visa?
17:35:30 <mroman> what do you need a swiss visa for?
17:35:48 <mroman> just get a work permit and stay
17:35:50 <mroman> :D
17:36:07 <mroman> or
17:36:13 <mroman> just make vacation here
17:36:14 <mroman> and stay
17:36:32 <int-e> . o O ( bring money )
17:36:55 <mroman> and bring lots of gold
17:36:58 <mroman> we like gold
17:37:00 <mroman> it's so shiny
17:37:20 <mroman> countries generally have nothing against rich immigrants
17:37:26 <mroman> only against poor immigrants :)
17:37:34 <nooga> hold on, I'm calling Google Geneva office
17:37:35 <mroman> well
17:37:38 <mroman> that and muslims
17:37:44 <int-e> `? apt
17:37:45 <HackEgo> apt? ¯\(°​_o)/¯
17:37:49 <mroman> muslims and poor people
17:38:08 <mroman> and maybe germans
17:38:15 <mroman> germans are like arch enemies
17:38:18 <mroman> for whatever reason
17:38:20 <olsner> oh, HTH is also a brand of kitchens
17:38:45 <mroman> I guess it's because they talk in a funny language :p
17:38:47 <int-e> `learn APT is a technical term in cyber witchcraft, short for "adequate pernicious toe-rags".
17:38:49 <HackEgo> Learned 'apt': APT is a technical term in cyber witchcraft, short for "adequate pernicious toe-rags".
17:39:20 <int-e> @google "adequate pernicious toe-rags"
17:39:21 <lambdabot> https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/03/security_threat_solutions/
17:39:25 <int-e> though so.
17:39:32 <mroman> but I never heard about discrimination against rich english people
17:39:41 <mroman> as money is always welcome
17:39:50 <mroman> you'll even get tax discounts as a rich foreigner.
17:39:59 <mroman> common practice.
17:40:03 <boily> All Hail the Toe Of Everything!
17:40:20 <int-e> *thought
17:40:25 <nooga> i thought that everyone in switzerland is more or less well off
17:40:32 <mroman> well off how?
17:40:34 <mroman> with money?
17:40:40 <nooga> yeah
17:40:45 <mroman> well yeah
17:40:49 <mroman> but more money is always better
17:40:51 <int-e> nooga: every country needs slaves ;)
17:40:54 <mroman> I mean
17:41:05 <mroman> if you are rich and move to some village in switzerland
17:41:18 <mroman> even if you only have to pay half the amount a swiss would have to pay in taxes
17:41:27 <VisualizeR> no country "needs" slaves, it is just comfortable to have them
17:41:28 <nooga> your new neighbours will vote if they want you there :D
17:41:28 <mroman> it's still going to be a good income
17:41:39 <mroman> so the village can buy a new school
17:41:41 <mroman> or whatever
17:41:42 <mroman> :D
17:41:44 <int-e> VisualizeR: what are you, socialist or communist ;)
17:41:46 <VisualizeR> heaven is a real place on earth, you're just too poor to live in it
17:42:06 <VisualizeR> power to the people
17:42:15 <int-e> kidding mostly... also out of my depth
17:42:21 <int-e> maybe I should read Marx.
17:43:18 <mroman> money equals happiness
17:43:23 <mroman> but only if you have A LOT of it
17:43:33 <mroman> (1 Mio. isn't enough)
17:43:39 <nooga> no, it does not
17:43:41 <VisualizeR> we're always wanting to simply accept the biggest system there is but this way we give away our power to share information collectively. that is basically the msg of the aliens, the 1% are the alienated ones and they started a class war.
17:43:43 <nooga> look up Notch
17:43:49 <nooga> he's miserable
17:44:10 <int-e> "money cannot buy happiness but it sure keeps the family in touch"
17:44:29 <nooga> my view on it is that we're all playing a game
17:44:29 <int-e> (paraphrased, no clue what the source was)
17:44:34 <nooga> and money is a score
17:44:40 <nooga> the score*
17:45:07 <mroman> no
17:45:08 <nooga> and this game gets slightly easier for high scoring players
17:45:12 <mroman> family is the score
17:45:14 <mroman> in my opinion
17:45:15 <int-e> slightly?
17:45:19 <mroman> but money can buy you family.
17:45:28 <nooga> int-e: slightly, unless you're in the top ten
17:45:51 <mroman> with money I could afford plastic surgery
17:45:55 <mroman> a lot of plastic surgery.
17:46:29 <nooga> I cheated and got a lovely wife without using any money ;>
17:46:44 <mroman> lucky bastard :(
17:47:08 <mroman> I'm a 0/10. Makes dating incredibly hard.
17:47:28 <nooga> I used to think the same
17:47:31 <nooga> there's hope
17:47:31 <mroman> 0/10 on the revised scale
17:47:36 <mroman> no the traditional scale
17:47:42 <mroman> the traditional scale is useless.

20:55:58 <wob_jonas> As for English, I have a question.
20:56:49 <int-e> why?
20:56:56 <wob_jonas> There's this short joke about the vet thinking the doctor has it easy because his patients can speak and tell him what the problem is why they went to the doctor or what symptoms they have.
20:58:04 <wob_jonas> The Hungarian phrasing is: doctor: "Mi a panasza?" (which is a common thing for a doctor to asks when you go there without context), and the vet answers "Ja, úgy könnyű!" saying that the doctor has it easy.
20:58:14 <wob_jonas> What is the idiomatic phrasing of that joke in English?
20:58:48 <oerjan> . o O ( wait, what's the actual joke )
20:59:18 <shachaf> can you translate the hungarian bits twh
21:00:03 <wob_jonas> "Mi a panasza?" means "What is your complaint?" which is how a doctor asks an adult why you came to them when he doesn't already know what the problem is
21:00:39 <wob_jonas> "Ja, hát úgy könnyű!" means "Oh, it's easy that way!" or something like that
21:00:51 <nooga> :O
21:02:03 <shachaf> Oh, I see.
21:02:50 <wob_jonas> But the joke only works well if it's short, not a long explanation, which is why I don't know how to say it in English the best.
21:03:44 <shachaf> The veterinarian wants to make the doctor's life harder by not answering questions.
21:03:59 <wob_jonas> shachaf: no, he'll probably answer the question after that
21:04:06 <wob_jonas> he just exclaims that first
21:04:20 <wob_jonas> he's in a joke but isn't stupid
21:04:30 <shachaf> Are you sure he exists?
21:04:35 <int-e> A Veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor. The doctor asked her all the usual questions: what were the symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc. Suddenly, she interrupted him, "Hey look, I'm a vet... I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions. I can tell what's wrong just by looking." She smugly added, "Why can't you?"
21:04:40 <int-e> The doctor nodded, stood back, looked her up and down, quickly wrote out a prescription, handed it to her and said, "There you are. Of course, if that doesn't work, we'll have to have you put to sleep."
21:04:44 <int-e> this version works for me.

21:06:41 <int-e> (and I don't remember having heard such a joke... not that this says a lot)
21:06:53 <zzo38> The punchline is when one man punches the other.
21:07:03 <int-e> A man took his Rottweiler to the vet and said "My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him?" "Well," said the vet, "lets have a look at him." So he picks the dog up and has a good look at its eyes. "Hmm, not good," says the vet, "I'm going to have to put him down."
21:07:08 <int-e> The owner was stunned, "Put him down just because he's cross-eyed?" "No, because he's heavy," says the vet.
21:07:24 <int-e> (that's the other joke I found on the way that made me chuckle, at least. it's all I have for now.)
21:07:53 <wob_jonas> hehe
21:08:07 <int-e> Of course I'm reminded of Pratchett's wisdom about horse doctors.

21:20:50 <int-e> zzo38: just the range of coordinates you want: https://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man2/xhtml/glOrtho.xml ... that should set up things so that afterwards specifying (2D, or 3D with a z coordinate) vertex coordinates in screen space should work.
21:23:10 <zzo38> Yes, but then what do I need with glViewport and glMatrixMode and so on?
21:24:51 <int-e> oerjan: I don't know. I guess if I were jumping through the introduction hoop, that would not cause any terrible additional annoyance provided that this is clear and near impossible to miss from the instructions.
21:25:19 <int-e> oerjan: but is it worth it? do you expect people to actually read through all the introductions? I mean anyone besides yourself...
21:26:40 <wob_jonas> http://esolangs.org/wiki/Silberjoder whoa
21:26:48 <oerjan> int-e: well they have to avoid the other pitfalls described there already, and it _does_ already say to put it on the end.
21:26:55 <oerjan> *at
21:29:34 <int-e> zzo38: afair you need glViewPort to specify the area to be rendered to; but it sets up the transformation such that screen coordinates range from (-1,-1) (top-left, I think) to (1,1) (bottom right). So afterwards, you can use glOrtho to set up the transformation that you want without affecting the area being rendered to. But as I said before, this is outdated information.
21:29:52 <oerjan> although the main one people seem to have trouble with is not putting in external links.
21:30:08 <int-e> oerjan: I guess a more relevant question is whether any of the recent additions would have been rejected by such a test.
21:30:20 <oerjan> (which is also one that was put there _specifically_ to catch spammers)
21:30:52 <oerjan> int-e: there are less than a handful who have put it at the beginning.
21:31:10 <oerjan> but they do seem to happen occasionally.
21:31:20 <oerjan> (and then i fix it)
21:31:49 <oerjan> int-e: and of course i'm mentioning this because there just was one.
21:31:51 <zzo38> And then how does it affect inputs to fragment programs?
21:32:33 <int-e> oerjan: so put a reminder text at the start of the section.
21:33:20 <int-e> oerjan: and then adding such a check seems fair to me
21:33:47 <oerjan> int-e: i was considering that.
21:34:12 <ais523> I know I had to remove the check that peopel had signed correctly
21:34:16 <ais523> because so many legitimate users didn't
21:34:20 <ais523> it's really disappointing, actually
21:37:32 <oerjan> . o O ( making good CAPTCHAs is hard not because spammer programs are smart, but because humans are stupid )
21:38:06 * oerjan cannot be the first to note that.
21:38:06 <wob_jonas> yeah
21:39:20 <wob_jonas> I'm reminded to https://www.xkcd.com/810/ and https://www.xkcd.com/233/ of course
21:40:20 <oerjan> i'd fail the latter, never having seen that.
21:40:35 <wob_jonas> 810 is an approach that's too hard for humans, 233 is one that's too easy for machines
21:41:23 <ais523> oerjan: a bot passed a fairly large turing-test tournament, it did so by pretending to be a ukrainian teenager
21:41:42 <ais523> which automatically caused people to give it a pass on things like bad english and no knowledge of American pop culture
21:42:05 <oerjan> i remember that
21:42:53 <oerjan> was it scott aaronson who tried it and found it easy to beat

21:47:20 <oerjan> ais523: it _could_ work but (1) the judge would need to be competent (2) a passing program would need a full fake human backstory
21:47:33 <int-e> zzo38: meh, I googled a bit. AFAIU, vertex shaders convert coordinates into "normalized device coordinates" (that's a cube [-1..1]^3) with all fragments outside the range being dropped; the input to the fragment shader includes window (that is, device) coordinates of the fragment though, obtained using data from glViewPort.

22:05:20 <mroman> what the fuck is wrong with these humans.
22:05:46 <mroman> and hu
22:05:53 <mroman> only 63.3% of humans were identified as humans
22:05:54 <mroman> what
22:06:23 <mroman> "Out of the 334 votes cast, Cleverbot was judged to be 59.3% human, compared to the rating of 63.3% human achieved by human participants."
22:06:42 <int-e> Was it one of those bots that emulated a teenager?
22:06:47 <mroman> don't know
22:06:56 <mroman> but cleverbot.com let's you chat with it online
22:07:09 <mroman> I doubt you need more than one minute to see if it's a bot.
22:07:35 <zzo38> int-e: It is still confusing to me a bit. If I will use vertex program and fragment program, what do the different inputs and outputs of those programs do?

22:07:37 <fungot> int-e: there are fnord
22:07:53 <int-e> And fungot isn't even trying to pass itself off as human.

22:11:56 <mroman> are there transcripts from those turing tests available?
22:15:33 <mroman> "Although Cleverbot managed to score well on the Turing test, the model that did that is different from the one you’ll find online."
22:15:55 <mroman> Thought so, because the online version is pretty dumb.
22:18:32 <mroman> The trick is to not ask them yes/no questions.
22:18:52 <mroman> they are decently good at detecting yes/no question and answer randomly with either.
22:19:49 <ais523> can't you ask a yes/no question for which a random answer would be suspicious?
22:19:55 <ais523> at least half the time
22:20:03 <ais523> or for which both yes and no would be bad answers
22:20:08 <mroman> of course.
22:21:19 <mroman> also you need to reference previous things you've said.
22:24:06 <mroman> stuff like "Lookt at my last sentence. Pick the worth word in that sentence which is a verb. Please tell me the simple past of that verb."

22:25:39 <mroman> To identify a bot you need to know what a bot can't.

22:29:40 <oerjan> int-e: ooh, good idea
22:30:01 <mroman> it's a promise to join me, yes.
22:30:18 <mroman> but he's not even responding.

22:34:29 <shachaf> too expensive?
22:34:30 <shachaf> suit yourself
22:34:39 <mroman> I can't buy clothes without having to tailor them.
22:35:17 <mroman> my arms and legs are shorter than other peoples.
22:35:22 <mroman> *people's
22:35:27 <mroman> well
22:35:37 <mroman> 600 bucks is probably a reasonable price for a tailored suit
22:35:49 <mroman> I mean that's likely average price for that kind of quality.
22:36:39 <mroman> but I have no specific use for a suit other than that I currently don't have one and wanted to see what the fuzz is abut.
22:36:41 <mroman> *about
22:37:34 <mroman> you only need a suit if you work as a lawyer or in a bank or insurance company
22:37:41 <mroman> otherwise nobody needs a suit.
22:38:06 <mroman> and 600 bucks is too much to ruin it
22:38:08 <wob_jonas> mroman: not quite. it's useful to have a suit when you're invited to other people's weddings

22:40:41 <mroman> and the total amount of times I went out I can count with two hands.
22:40:49 <mroman> no
22:40:50 <alercah> sheltered...
22:40:54 <mroman> I leave home everyday for work
22:41:12 <mroman> and climbing
22:41:14 <mroman> and stuff
22:41:17 <mroman> mostly climbing and work tho
22:41:18 <wob_jonas> alercah: or have a really big house, like Wonko the Sane does
22:41:47 <mroman> and doctor appointments
22:42:32 <mroman> I face orofacial dyskinesia
22:42:39 <mroman> hm
22:42:39 <wob_jonas> do you mean indoor climbing?
22:42:43 <mroman> *I have
22:42:54 <wob_jonas> orofa... what?
22:43:02 <mroman> ok oerjan what actually happens is that my brain skips to the next word and then mangles words together
22:43:05 <wob_jonas> what does that mean?
22:43:20 <mroman> so I end up writing "I face" orofacial instead of "I have"
22:43:44 <mroman> wob_jonas: It means my facial muscles are doing shit they are not supposed to
22:43:58 <mroman> also chronic orofacial pain
22:44:14 <wob_jonas> I see
22:44:35 <mroman> They move without me commanding them
22:47:07 <mroman> I don't have many friend.
22:47:24 <mroman> Mostly because I'm very good at sensing if people actually like me or just tolerate me.
22:48:17 <mroman> and since I'm not very narcissistic I don't give a shit about attention from people who tolerate me
22:49:21 <mroman> Maybe that's a BPD trait
22:49:22 <mroman> who knows.
22:49:34 <mroman> or SPD.
22:51:04 <mroman> and I'm not really good at anything and not traditionally attractive at all
22:51:14 <mroman> so people usually don't want to be friends anyway
22:51:33 <wob_jonas> mroman: what sort of climbing? indoor climbing?
22:51:38 <mroman> indoor
22:52:00 <mroman> and bouldering
22:52:06 <mroman> but climbing only indoor so far.
22:53:22 <wob_jonas> I tried indoor climbing only once, and didn't enjoy it, so I never went back
22:53:37 <wob_jonas> but at least I can understand why other people want to do it
22:54:07 <mroman> It's challenging.
22:54:21 <mroman> and the first few times it feels like freedom.
22:54:28 <mroman> but currently it has become more of a challenge
22:54:33 <mroman> like "I wanna climb better grades"
22:55:01 <mroman> but it's a very niche sport around here
22:55:03 <mroman> not a lot of people
22:55:26 <mroman> I don't know anybody who climbs
22:55:31 <wob_jonas> yeah
22:55:37 <wob_jonas> it's not that common
22:55:44 <mroman> so I'm limited to the routes with those Toppas devices
22:55:53 <wob_jonas> somehow a lot of people started to do squash (sport)
22:56:12 <wob_jonas> Toppas devices?
22:57:08 <wob_jonas> apparently that's some sort of rope holding thing, if I understand right
22:57:13 <mroman> yes.
22:57:18 <mroman> It's at the top of the wall
22:57:41 <mroman> it has a mechanism that slows your fall to 1m/s
22:58:15 <wob_jonas> mroman: can't you also go to indoor climbing spaces that don't have ropes but are not very tall and have a thick padded mat on the floor? that's the kind of place I was at when I tried. so if you fall, you don't fall from too high, and don't hurt yourself much (usually).
22:58:25 <mroman> wob_jonas: that's called bouldering
22:58:28 <mroman> and yeah, I do that.
22:58:32 <wob_jonas> ah
23:00:21 <mroman> https://www.hoehenpass.de/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/560x560/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/t/o/toppas_1.png <- that's a toppas
23:00:42 <mroman> it's on the top of the wall with a rope attached so you can pull it down, hook it up to your climbing belt (probably not the correct term)
23:00:57 <mroman> and it always pulls the rope in so when you climb upwards it will pull the rope in
23:01:21 <wob_jonas> climbing harness?
23:01:27 <mroman> when you fall it will slowling unwind the rope with about 1m/s
23:01:30 <mroman> ah yes. harness.
23:02:05 <mroman> if you're tired from climbing it gets hard to even pull the thing down :)
23:02:40 <mroman> because there's always an upwards force pulling the rope back up
23:02:48 <mroman> so you have to pull it down against that force :D
23:03:54 <mroman> which is why people once they have pulled it down fix it to a carabiner at the bottom of the wall.
23:04:07 <mroman> well there are two systems in use actually
23:04:22 <mroman> one where the carabiner from the toppas is at the top with a small rope attached to it so you have to pull the thing down
23:04:49 <mroman> and system 2 is where it's already pulled down and hooked with carabiners on the floor
23:04:59 <mroman> so you unhook it, climb up, fall down, hook it to the floor again
23:05:16 <mroman> the problem with that is if some moron forgets to hook it to the floor the whole thing is pulled to the top
23:05:20 <mroman> and you need a crane :D
23:06:01 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
23:06:06 <mroman> some routes have similar devices
23:06:24 <mroman> "snatch pulley"?
23:07:00 <mroman> it's not a machine so you need a human partner but the device makes you lighter to like 10% of your actual weight
23:07:15 <mroman> so the one who is protecting you from falling down needs very little force
23:07:34 <mroman> and the rope is already on the wall
23:07:44 <mroman> it's mostly for children though.

01:50:00 <fizzie> Nothing that fancy.
01:50:52 <shachaf> Maybe the London real estate you buy can have an HTH kitchen.
01:53:45 -!- krok_ has quit (Quit: Leaving).
01:54:52 <fizzie> I looked a little at how those things work around here, and it seems really complicated.
01:55:20 <fizzie> At least compared to how we did it in Finland, where we just went to the bank we used anyway, asked for some money, and bought a place.
01:56:03 <shachaf> As opposed to what in London?
01:56:54 <fizzie> Apparently here the process involves at least a solicitor, a mortgage adviser, a lender, the seller, the seller's solicitor, the lender's surveyor, and probably some others as well.
01:57:54 <fizzie> And allegedly everyone remortgages their mortgages all the time.
01:58:00 <fizzie> For a better deal.
01:58:06 <shachaf> All the time?
01:58:19 <shachaf> Why do better deals keep showing up?
01:58:24 <fizzie> Well, every couple years.
01:58:43 -!- nooga has joined.
01:58:45 <shachaf> Are interest-only mortgage the best?
01:59:00 <doesthiswork> can you borrow money in finland for a place in london?
01:59:03 <fizzie> AIUI, you get a good deal for your first K years (for K of around 2 to 5), and then you remortgage when it would switch to the lender's default rate.
01:59:44 <fizzie> Plus there's freeholds, leaseholds, shared freeholds, commonholds, and I suspect a few other holds as well.
02:01:19 <oerjan> bood evenily.
02:01:33 <fizzie> As far as I can tell, commonholds correspond to the most common arrangement (for flats) in Finland, where the people living in the building own a share in a company that owns the building, and then pays for someone to manage the things that need to be managed and makes the decisions that need to be decided.
02:02:00 <oerjan> `slwd latin//s/U/V/g
02:02:02 <HackEgo> latin//LATINA EST SVBLIMISSIMA LINGVA MVNDI
02:02:13 <fizzie> But apparently no new-ish commonhold flats exist, because the developer companies can't extract as much money from the tenants that way.
02:03:24 -!- nooga has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
02:03:35 <shachaf> Sounds like a condominium thing in the US?
02:04:19 <fizzie> Maybe. All I know about condominiums is that the word is very fancy, and resembles CoDominium, which is a sci-fi universe.
02:05:38 <shachaf> Aha, Wikipedia confirms it.
02:06:11 <shachaf> The Suomi link points to Asunto#Asuinhuoneisto
02:06:52 <shachaf> fizzie: How should I get leverage?
02:07:02 <fizzie> I think that's just a general word for a flat.
02:07:21 <shachaf> Maybe real estate is the best way to do it.
02:07:32 <shachaf> I hear leverage is the best.
02:07:56 -!- tromp has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
02:08:01 <fizzie> The Asunto#Asuinhuoneisto section just says it's a thing meant for a place someone can live in.
02:12:50 <fizzie> I've been looking into setting up an alerting system, but I don't know how I could trust the alerting system to be working without something alerting me if it breaks.
02:13:37 <shachaf> What sort of alerts?
02:14:17 <fizzie> I don't know yet. I want something that'd show up on things I'm looking at.
02:14:29 <fizzie> If you mean 'on what', I'd like to know when the wiki breaks, for example.
02:14:35 <shachaf> Ah.
02:14:39 <fizzie> It's already got monitoring, but not alerting.
02:14:46 <shachaf> Not an alarm on your flat, for example.
02:14:50 <shachaf> What sort of monitoring has it got?
02:15:00 <shachaf> Shouldn't a monitoring system be able to alert automatically?
02:15:16 <shachaf> s/ automatically//
02:15:30 <fizzie> Three of the systems involved in the monitoring can do alerts, but I haven't configured any of them to do so.
02:15:44 <shachaf> Which systems?
02:16:57 <fizzie> There's a collectd instance on the wiki machine scraping stuff out of nginx (collectd can do alerts), it's sent to an InfluxDB for storage (the TICK stack includes a separate tool called Kapacitor for alerting), and I look at it with Grafana (the very latest Grafana versions do alerting).
02:17:41 <shachaf> Isn't Grafana more of a UI?
02:17:49 <fizzie> Yes, but they're building an alerting in it.
02:17:56 <shachaf> Seems odd.
02:18:08 <shachaf> Of those systems it seems that the one I'd want to alert would be Kapacitor.
02:18:09 <fizzie> Apparently it was a heavily requested feature.
02:18:13 <shachaf> Well, I've never used Kapacitor.
02:18:38 <shachaf> collectd can presumably only alert on the values it collects, rather than queries based on historical values etc.?
02:18:59 <fizzie> Building alerting in Grafana may make sense so far as to it providing a nice user interface for configuring alerts.
02:19:40 <shachaf> I guess?
02:19:49 <shachaf> I've been running Prometheus recently. It's a Borgmon clone.
02:20:10 <fizzie> So you said. I had a look at Prometheus, but I've spent a little bit too much time fiddling with the current setup already.
02:20:25 <fizzie> Incidentally, InfluxDB and the rest of TICK are also written in Go, as Prometheus.

02:50:09 <fizzie> https://github.com/Microsoft/GVFS
02:51:02 <fizzie> "With GVFS, this means that they now have a Git experience that is much more manageable: clone now takes a few minutes instead of 12+ hours, checkout takes 30 seconds instead of 2-3 hours, and status takes 4-5 seconds instead of 10 minutes."

05:37:48 <shachaf> hi Cale
05:37:55 <shachaf> What language should be used to specify build system configuration?
05:39:06 -!- nooga has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
05:44:01 -!- VisualizeR has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds).
05:47:48 <Cale> shachaf: At the company I work for, we use nix. I really wish that nix's language was just Haskell.
05:48:18 <shachaf> Nix's language seems very complicated.
05:48:30 <shachaf> But also it doesn't really seem like a build system configuration language?
05:48:39 <shachaf> It doesn't replace Makefiles/cabal/whatever.
05:48:53 <Cale> It's not so much that the language itself is complicated, it's that the way people use it is complicated and often undocumented, and impossible to discover because it's untyped.
05:49:25 <Cale> Well, cabal2nix is involved
05:50:11 <shachaf> Bazel and all Bazel clones use Python. It's not ideal but it's not bad.
05:50:15 <shachaf> I'm not sure what would be better.
05:52:19 <shachaf> Would Haskell be better? Unclear.
05:53:32 <Cale> If nix were simply built in Haskell rather than its own weird inane language, it would be really nice.
05:54:16 <shachaf> Nix seems to be at the wrong level of abstraction, though.
05:54:27 <shachaf> But maybe I just don't understand Nix.
05:54:51 <Cale> There needs to be some sort of transition project which starts out by implementing nix in Haskell with Haskell as the configuration language, and then building a nix interpreter which integrates with that so that all the existing work on .nix files can be leveraged and gradually replaced.
05:55:20 <shachaf> I went to a talk about Reflex FRP the other day, by the way.
05:55:28 <Cale> nice
05:55:32 <Cale> Who gave it?
05:55:40 <shachaf> Tikhon, if you know him?
05:55:49 <Cale> I've heard the name
05:56:00 <Cale> I'm in NYC for the next couple of weeks btw
05:56:06 <Cale> Just got here
05:56:26 <shachaf> NYC pretty good. I should go sometime.

05:56:58 <shachaf> You should stop by CA.
05:57:19 <Cale> Ah, perhaps I should have... it's all already booked though.
05:57:38 <Cale> My stopover is in Hong Kong
05:57:55 <Cale> Gonna be a crazy flight :)
06:00:53 <shachaf> Cale: You should come to BayHac 2017 in Apr.
06:02:11 <Cale> oh man... might be too soon after all this, but we'll see :)
06:02:28 <shachaf> Why?
06:02:31 <shachaf> Just a quick flight.
06:04:14 <Cale> Yeah, it's probably not really all that hard -- I just fully expect to be fairly burnt out on travel by the time I get back home toward the end of March.
06:04:53 <Cale> I'm only going to be home for two days between now and March 20
06:06:06 <shachaf> So you have several weeks to rest before BayHac
06:06:09 <shachaf> It's perfect.
06:06:10 <Cale> :D
06:06:20 <shachaf> I'll probably be in NYC in Apr.
06:06:26 <Cale> cool
06:06:41 <shachaf> But it shouldn't conflict, so it'll all be fine.

21:11:13 <wob_jonas> ‘Life,’ said Marvin, ‘don't talk to me about life.’
21:15:11 <zzo38> Do you know what is best way to do with OpenGL to replace a texture and a set of vertices with data from mmap()ed memory during every frame without lagging?
21:15:13 <int-e> Hmm, there was that message that made Marvin smile? "We apologize for the inconvenience.".
21:17:10 <Zarutian> zzo38: well there will be lag as the texture will have to be DMAed from main memory to graphics card memory
21:18:43 <zzo38> Zarutian: Yes, but I would want to try to reduce the amount of lag and also to reduce the amount of slowness
21:19:06 <wob_jonas> But a more expensive computer?
21:19:31 <zzo38> (And I want to copy a set of vertices as well as a texture, and then to render those things in a display list)
21:23:48 -!- hppavilion[1] has joined.
21:25:19 <zzo38> wob_jonas: I just wanted to know the best way to do; it does not have to be perfect. (Also, I haven't tried anything yet)
21:25:40 -!- hppavilion2 has joined.
21:27:09 <Zarutian> zzo38: the lag will always be there due to this bottleneck that is the bus between the graphics card and main memory. This is true even with systems that say that they use unified memory. (In that case, unless the memory is dual ported, it will cause contention between CPU and GPU. And often there is no mapswapping of memory banks. (CPU does stuff with memory bank A while GPU has memory bank B and then they switch)
21:27:17 <Zarutian> )
21:28:02 <Zarutian> I think there is something called transfers sets or command lists but I havent looked at OpenGL (nor (in)DirectX for that matter) in a long while now.
21:28:08 <int-e> https://www.khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Buffer_Object ... no I'm not reading that now (and it won't give you the answers you want anyway... it'll depend on the hardware. for example, the hybrid CPU and GPU packages with shared memory have the benefit that no DMA is taking place. PCIe has reasonably fast access to main memory too, I believe.
21:29:20 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds).
21:29:31 <int-e> I think buffer objects are the modern abstraction for everything now, I mean look at this list of types: https://www.khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Buffer_Object#General_use
21:30:20 <wob_jonas> It's good to know there are people on this channel who know about gpu stuff
21:31:07 * int-e doesn't really... it's on my "I should take some time to properly (re)learn this" horizon)
21:32:34 <wob_jonas> it's on my list of things I don't want to learn about
21:36:44 <zzo38> Why do they make it so complicated? (Many older kind of computers do not make it so complicated and so confusing)
21:38:20 <Zarutian> int-e: re the hybrid CPU and GPU packages: see what I said about contention. (Which is more accuratly said to be port contention)
21:39:43 <int-e> Zarutian: yes, I know it's not a free lunch.
21:41:00 <Zarutian> zzo38: depends on which older computers. Many just give you a frame buffer memory that you can write pixels into.
21:41:31 <int-e> (In the end hybrid or standalone GPU will be just another variable for deciding where best to put your various buffer objects)
21:41:49 <Zarutian> int-e: I am just rather befuddled why they want to add pressure on the memory to GPU or CPU bottleneck.
21:43:52 <zzo38> My own design was just for CPU and video to be clock interleaved, and video memory can be mapped anywhere in the main memory space (usually RAM, but it does not have to be), and then a display list is executed during hblank in order to change the setting of what to draw on that scanline.
21:44:33 <Zarutian> zzo38: so basically, ATARI esque setup
21:44:58 <int-e> Zarutian: shared memory = simpler design? I've heard the point (I think in a talk by John Carmack) that a lot of data has to travel from the CPU/main memory to the GPU each frame *anyway* and having shared memory (= direct access of the GPU to that data) might very well make this cheaper overall... I'm skeptical but it's definitely not an obvious tradeoff.
21:45:00 <zzo38> Zarutian: Yes, somewhat, but more sophisticated.
21:45:55 -!- copumpkin has joined.
21:45:55 <int-e> Zarutian: I can see an unambiguous advantage in not sharing the frame buffer though.
21:46:01 <wob_jonas> actually, I think the video chipset being the most complicated part of the computer is the rule, ever since the first video terminals, and the IBM PC with its dumb simple video cards are the exception
21:46:41 -!- hppavilion2 has changed nick to hppavilion[1].
21:47:17 <Zarutian> int-e: perhaps, but I have seen old designs where they used crossbar switch between CPUs, GPUs, DMA drivers and memory banks.
21:48:39 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: the reason for that was the price of memory iirc versus logic die size. (If you could use a specialized logic to lessen memory consuption for video terminal stuff then you did)
21:49:01 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: yep
21:49:48 <int-e> Zarutian: damn there was a cute story a while ago where somebody ran benchmarks and they got quite consistently faster after 30 minutes or so... that was with a shared framebuffer, and after 30 minutes the display would switch off, freeing a noticable fraction of the memory bandwidth (1920*1080*60*4 = 500MB/s, it would be more today). I have no idea how to find it again :-/
21:49:57 <wob_jonas> and I think part of the reason why memory capacity (as opposed to latency) became relatively cheaper compared to other stuff in the computer is partly that DRAM starts out big but scales better to larger RAM sizes
21:50:10 <wob_jonas> int-e: that was me
21:50:13 <wob_jonas> wasn't I?
21:50:25 <Zarutian> int-e: the beuity of it was that there were usually no contention between diffrent accessors to same memory banks.
21:50:29 <int-e> wob_jonas: possible?
21:50:29 <wob_jonas> I did main memory throughput benchmarks
21:50:42 <wob_jonas> and found that it got faster when the screen saver started
21:50:58 <zzo38> Zarutian: But I think the Atari ANTIC only allows executing one display list instruction per hblank, and many settings could not be set by the display list. My own design does not have these limitations.
21:51:10 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: the contention was with the throughput. I didn't try to measure latency in that case.
21:51:53 <int-e> wob_jonas: did you just have graphs or also some text online? but I guess reading it here would be memorable enough for me.
21:51:55 <Zarutian> zzo38: sure. But the basic idea is the same.
21:52:26 <wob_jonas> int-e: I probably showed a graph
21:52:37 <Zarutian> int-e: it just had one 'huge' drawback: cost. At least at that time.

21:56:04 <Zarutian> zzo38: I have somewhere in my ideas file an draft of an spec where instead of an application being only limited to framebuffers, textures, voxels, uniforms and simple gpu shader kernels, they could send a whole program expressed in a binary language that was on the level of primitive recursive function level and therefore guranteed to terminate.
21:57:11 <Zarutian> zzo38: a bit like ReGIS&Sixel, Ripscrip, NAPLPS or Apple QuickDraw commands list (PICT) in that regard
21:57:24 <zzo38> OK
21:57:52 <int-e> Zarutian: probably still is expensive... otherwise more multicore CPUs would offer more than 2 memory interfaces.
21:58:18 <Zarutian> so feel free to discuss your ideas regarding this here, zzo38 ;-Þ
21:58:24 <int-e> (perhaps 4 is the norm now for high-end CPUs?)
21:59:49 <Zarutian> int-e: well that design didnt have multi core CPUs, just a number of CPUs (Called Computing Processing Units just to get the acronym to fit ;-)
21:59:58 <int-e> (just looking at intel and amd here, fwiw)
22:00:00 <zzo38> Zarutian: I would have had it a bit differently; the program is not guaranteed to terminate but if it does not terminate it will restart anyways during each vblank. That way loops and so on are possible and you can implement your own tiles perhaps
22:01:25 <wob_jonas> zzo38: is there much difference? A primitive recursive program could still easily loop as much that it terminates only after the universe has ended.
22:01:52 -!- tromp has joined.
22:02:24 <wob_jonas> As for CPU and memory interface, what I really wish for is for Intel to figure out a sane way in future x86_64 cpus how the OS can opt for a mode where all pages are at least 8K (or at least 16K) sized,
22:02:35 <int-e> Zarutian: sure, but to make it analogous, a multicore-CPU is just several CPU's, and possibly GPUs on a single die, communicating with external buses (memory, PCIe, more?) and in a perfect world there'd be a crossbar switch between all those components...
22:02:51 <zzo38> My own design did allow loops too and also did that (restarted the program during each vblank), but could not execute during rendering so you had to program the registers to control rendering during each scanline (it renders tiles eight pixels wide, or can render in pixel mode instead, but cannot mix them in a single scanline; also tiles are only one pixel high but the display list can change the character base address during each scanline in order
22:02:57 <wob_jonas> because the 4K page size is currently causing the cpus to not being able to have more than 8*4K L1 data cache
22:03:11 <wob_jonas> and that limitation would be so useful to get over.
22:03:13 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds).
22:03:17 <zzo38> Actually in my design, the display list program can't terminate, although there is a "wait for next scanline" instruction.
22:03:20 <Zarutian> zzo38: one trick I did way back when first there was a computer in the house and I was programming stuff in QBASIC was to keep a copy of video memory block where the mouse cursor was to be drawn to be used to undo the cursor drawing when the mouse was moved.
22:03:35 <int-e> Zarutian: the reality will be less than ideal and probably too complicated for my poor little brain :)
22:04:12 <Zarutian> zzo38: just because it otherwise took too long to redraw the screen and there wasnt enough memory to do dual buffering. Worked well for other sprite kind of stuff too.
22:04:50 <int-e> Zarutian: one cute point of the hybrid design is that a GPU can potentially access data by snooping CPU caches without going via main memory at all.
22:05:17 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: right, PC video cards didn't have built-in sprite support of any sort (and have other limitations too), which is why they're so hard to use.
22:05:43 <wob_jonas> People still ended up doing magical stuff with PC video cards of course, but still.
22:06:14 -!- tromp has quit (Ping timeout: 255 seconds).
22:06:20 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: I was rather pleased with my ten yearold self when I figured out that trick on my own.
22:06:32 <wob_jonas> nice
22:06:41 <zzo38> My own design does include built-in sprite support though, but the display list program still has to alter the sprite Y scroll register during each scanline
22:07:42 <zzo38> (Also my own design has no display list interrupt like ANTIC has, because it is unnecessary. There is still the vblank interrupt though.)
22:08:14 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: and my brother was rather impressed that I had added mouse cursor (and gui buttons) to an fractal drawing program that we had copied from an photocopied then faxed computer programming magazine article.
22:08:46 <int-e> Zarutian: hmm, and all that sounds like I really like those hybrids, and I actually don't... but the tradeoffs are all but clear, and the reason is that both the hybrids and the standalone GPUs are really hard to reason about.
22:09:00 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: did that use machine code (non-BASIC) for some of the computation?
22:09:01 <int-e> (performance wise)
22:10:12 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: none what so ever, took a while to draw the fractal, just did a ?interrupt? check in the next innermost loop iirc
22:10:19 <zzo38> A program I wrote in QBASIC to implement a solitaire card game used a XOR picture for the mouse cursor instead, and undid the mouse cursor before drawing anything else on the screen and then redid it afterward. (But there were no GUI buttons; the mouse was used only to select which card to move, and other operations were done by keyboard)
22:12:12 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: so if you swinged the mouse about it actually executed a bit slower, but you could pause the fractal drawing etc.
22:12:26 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: nice
22:13:32 <Zarutian> I am a bit sad that this thing sucumbed to a bad harddrive sector.
22:15:41 <Zarutian> when I discovered Forth I was rather pissed because Beginners' All Situations Interchange Computerlanguage was rather crappy and used the confusing mathematical notation I have come to loath.
22:16:20 <Zarutian> And here was this thing all along that was much better so long you didnt mind RPN.

22:16:45 <zzo38> As an example of what I was asking before about OpenGL is to consider a fragment program such as this http://sprunge.us/XSHI and may want to change the name table during every frame.

23:02:28 <Zarutian> int-e: said something about Buffer Objects so you could start there.
23:04:16 <shachaf> copumpkin: Do you think comments make sense on diffs directly like that, or in a code review tool?
23:04:29 <zzo38> I did read about Buffer Objects, but am unsure the best way to use them (without causing too much desynchronization and/or other problems).
23:04:30 <copumpkin> I mean more in a code review tool
23:04:31 <shachaf> I do wish more people used good code review tools.
23:04:40 <copumpkin> I want to "tell a story" in my code review
23:04:49 <copumpkin> but there's no reason not to start at diffs
23:05:47 <Zarutian> zzo38: well you have deplete me of my GPU knowledge. Perhaps ask in #OpenGL ?
23:06:25 <zzo38> Zarutian: I tried; they won't answer me.
23:09:19 * Zarutian really wished that all terminal emulators supported Sixels (They arent that complex)
23:09:36 <zzo38> Does any one other than xterm do?
23:10:05 <wob_jonas> um, what are Sixels?
23:10:27 <zzo38> Display pictures on a DEC VT terminal
23:10:39 <Zarutian> zzo38: well any other terminals that support VT340
23:11:12 <copumpkin> also, hi shachaf :)
23:11:19 <copumpkin> I'm stuck at ORD for another hour and a bit
23:11:22 * copumpkin sighs loudly
23:11:36 <Zarutian> copumpkin: what is ORD in this context?
23:13:16 <copumpkin> a very large airport in Chicago
23:13:47 <wob_jonas> copumpkin: on the way away, or on the way home?
23:14:48 <Zarutian> copumpkin: oh, I didnt catch that from context. Like KEF or BIRK, I gather.
23:15:18 <copumpkin> wob_jonas: way home :) second layover
23:15:25 <copumpkin> can't wait to lie down in my bed
23:17:44 <Zarutian> airports, it reminds me. A guy I heard of took a frozen water bottle through security because he successfully argued it was not a liquid. Frankly I think the security guys just saw that was water ice and didnt bother further than putting it through the x ray machine.
23:20:52 -!- DHeadshot has joined.
23:21:09 <Zarutian> Pretty cool I thought.
23:22:15 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: btw ftp://ftp.cs.utk.edu/pub/shuford/terminal/all_about_sixels.txt should illuminate sixels
23:22:26 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: hmm, how does that work? does he pour the melted part of the water on the floor right before he gets to the front of the queue of security?
23:23:30 -!- copumpkin has quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…).
23:24:00 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: nope, wetish paper towel evaporation cooling. Though he could just have as easily just drunk the melted part before getting to the front of the queue.
23:24:27 <wob_jonas> I see
23:25:08 <wob_jonas> I know the security people do sometimes let you through even with forbidden objects, I've seen and heard of examples
23:25:15 <Zarutian> the 'no liquids' crap is generally considered rather idiotic by all.
23:25:46 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: no it's not! it's actually one of the more brilliant parts of the rule
23:26:08 <wob_jonas> it makes many people buy drinks in the part of the airplane after security
23:26:15 <wob_jonas> great way to sell stuff
23:26:37 <Zarutian> or just fill up at the drinking fountain after security.
23:26:42 <wob_jonas> just like how the hand baggage size is also checked only at security, and anything you buy after, including large wine bottles, doesn't count in it
23:26:57 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: sure, some of them do that. I sometimes do too.
23:27:04 <wob_jonas> I've done both, I think
23:27:15 <Zarutian> I swear those hand baggage size shrinks every year
23:27:53 <Zarutian> not that I travel much
23:28:07 <Zarutian> just heard stories from people that do
23:28:12 <wob_jonas> Zarutian: no, it's more like the atoms are getting bigger in every object because of the Hubble constant
23:29:13 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: that is not even internally consistant. Because if they did get bigger then the relative sizes of objects wouldnt change.
23:29:45 <wob_jonas> I know
23:30:58 <Zarutian> it is just that airlines seem to follow the same semi-parabolic pattern, on large scale, that their airplanes do on small scale.
23:31:39 <wob_jonas> what? airplanes are shrinking too?
23:31:44 <wob_jonas> or growing? or what?
23:32:36 -!- DHeadshot has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
23:32:49 <Zarutian> lesse how can I explain this.
23:33:18 <wob_jonas> or... planes are free falling to the ground in a parabolic path?
23:33:58 <Zarutian> wob_jonas: I said semi-parabolic. They take off get up to crusing altitude then dive and land.
23:36:15 <Zarutian> the Hubble constant is basically saying that more space pops into existance over time. If we think of space as made up of biased smallscale randomly connected graph of planc sized cells then there is new cells coming into existance or at least connecting themselfs into the graph all over the place then...
23:37:51 <Zarutian> ... then it should be rather obvious that atoms which are mostly empty get bigger too at nearly the same rate.
23:39:03 <Zarutian> (the biasing of the graph is basically how space folds and gravity emerges)
23:41:44 <zzo38> Someone had before ask me to make up a Magic: the Gathering card "Demons In Your Nose {UB}", and now maybe they should be added into esolang wiki in article about undefined behaviour or maybe it should go only in the talk page instead.

04:24:02 <tswett> Hey, what programming languages are out there that have a type system whose power level is on par with Haskell and Scala?
04:24:30 <pikhq> ML?
04:24:51 <pikhq> (and its family, such as Ocaml)
04:25:50 <shachaf> organic caml
04:26:51 <tswett> I'm writing some neural net software in Scala and I'm wondering if I should move to a different language.
04:27:08 <hppavilion1> I prefer Ωcaml
04:27:31 <tswett> Scala is treating me pretty well. I think if I were to do what I'm doing in, say, F#, it would just break down and cry.
04:27:44 <hppavilion1> tswett: Also, are Haskell and Scala's type systems' power level... over 9000?
04:28:09 <tswett> I can't think of a funny answer to that question.
04:28:33 <hppavilion1> tswett: Probably something regarding proof ordinals?
04:28:44 <tswett> Ah, right.
04:29:03 <tswett> hppavilion1: yes. In fact, their power level is an ordinal number which cannot be proven to exist in Peano arithmetic.
04:30:51 <hppavilion1> tswett: (a) Are proof ordinals applicable in this context [probably yes] (b) Have the proof ordinals of Haskell and Scala's type systems been found (c) Are they particularly interesting ordinals, or just a "whatever" ordinal (d) what are they?
04:30:59 <hppavilion1> Oh, and (e) are they the same?
04:31:23 <tswett> (a) dunno (b) see (a) (c) see (b) (d) see (c) (e) see (d)
04:32:47 <tswett> All righty, lemme see.
04:33:01 <tswett> ML doesn't have typeclasses, but it has "modules", which feel familiar from Scala and Coq.
04:33:36 <tswett> A module can contain type and function definitions, but it can also contain abstract types and abstract functions, to be filled in later by means of inheritance.
04:33:47 <tswett> Scala traits have the same property.
04:33:51 <tswett> As do Coq modules.
04:37:55 <tswett> Yeah, I guess my main alternatives here are probably Haskell and the dependently typed ones: Coq, Agda, Idris.

14:13:03 <oerjan> b_jonas: church encoding or scott encoding (they're different when the types are recursive)
14:16:15 <oerjan> hm i may be confused about the differences
14:21:22 <oerjan> hm or wikipedia's scott encoding article is confused.
14:26:33 <oerjan> and the church encoding article only looks at limited examples, and seems to contradict the scott article for lists.
14:28:36 <oerjan> (i think the problem amounts to "church encoding is much more complicated for general recursive data types)
14:28:41 <oerjan> *")
14:31:53 <b_jonas> oerhan: thanks
14:32:46 <b_jonas> oerjan: maybe they differ in how they define the algebraic data types that they are trying to encode?
14:33:29 <oerjan> well, church encoding needs to know how a type occurs recursively in itself, in order to create well-typed representations
14:34:17 <oerjan> while scott encoding doesn't bother with that, so treats constructors as not caring what's put into them
14:35:28 <b_jonas> ok... though just from that, church encoding could still be a special case of scott encoding
14:36:07 <oerjan> not really. there's only one scott encoding for a type.
14:38:09 <b_jonas> ah, I see!
14:38:47 <b_jonas> according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_encoding#List_encodings , lists are encoded in some strange way, as tagged stuff rather than enums
14:39:03 <oerjan> b_jonas: yes, that article is really confused.
14:39:15 <oerjan> that's not a well-typed representation at all.
14:39:16 <b_jonas> I never understood why they'd do that in lambda calculus
14:39:50 <b_jonas> I mean, I can understand why you'd encode enums as a tagged struct in some languages
14:39:56 <b_jonas> just not in lambda calculus
14:39:58 <oerjan> the right fold representation is the well typed one.
14:41:29 <b_jonas> in fact
14:41:39 <oerjan> the one pair version is a cute hack
14:41:53 <b_jonas> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_encoding doesn't even seem to tell how to encode an arbitrary algebraic type in lambda calculus
14:42:02 <b_jonas> as in directly
14:42:04 <oerjan> right
14:42:34 <b_jonas> it just encodes Lists and some other types, though of course there are ways to encode algebraic types as Lists
14:43:16 <oerjan> i think the problem is, that to many people, "church encoding" is just a general term for any way of encoding stuff in lambda calculus.
14:43:24 <b_jonas> possible
14:43:28 <b_jonas> oh by the way
14:43:37 <oerjan> and that article is written from that viewpoint.
14:45:00 <b_jonas> you know how there's Gödel encoding, which encodes statements of some logical system as natural numbers, and it works by first writing the statement as a list of characters from some character set, and then encodes that list of characters to a number?
14:45:18 <b_jonas> for a long time I didn't understand why they encode a flat list this way, rather than some recursive structure
14:45:21 <b_jonas> but now I found out
14:45:47 <oerjan> hm?
14:46:11 <b_jonas> does my initial question make sense about why this is a flat list, as opposed to a parse tree?
14:46:17 <b_jonas> I'll tell the solution afterwards
14:46:25 <oerjan> yes. and i have a guess at the answer...
14:46:52 <oerjan> it's possible that peano arithmetic or whatever isn't powerful enough to recurse into such a structure.
14:47:06 <b_jonas> yes, something like that
14:47:39 <b_jonas> this encoding is used to show that proof is definable in a particular weak system
14:48:33 <b_jonas> that system is Robinson arithmetic, which is a crazy weak logical system
14:49:04 <oerjan> the other guess is that gödel just didn't think of doing it that way, and it works with characters.
14:49:16 <oerjan> both may be true simultaneously, of course.
14:49:19 <b_jonas> Robinson arithmetic is so weak that you can't really prove anything in it,
14:50:09 <b_jonas> oerjan: Gödel himself isn't too relevant here, he's the first one who did this and so his name is used, but people later defined other versions of the encoding and still used flat lists
14:50:43 <b_jonas> Robinson arithmetic has a language that has addition and multiplication
14:50:45 <b_jonas> but not power
14:50:51 <oerjan> i guess robinson arithmetic cannot do exponentials, which is sort of essential to nesting the construction.
14:51:02 <b_jonas> as such, it is not even obvious why you can manipulate flat lists with it
14:51:13 <b_jonas> or why you'd choose to work with such a crazy system
14:51:21 <b_jonas> why you don't just choose one that has lists built in or something
14:51:38 <b_jonas> anyway, it turns out there's some crazy trick that lets you define lists in Robinson arithmetic
14:52:25 -!- ^v has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
14:53:01 <b_jonas> and lets define getting the nth element of a list
14:53:04 <oerjan> obviously you choose to work with it because you want to find the weakest system where gödel's theorem works
14:53:08 <b_jonas> which means you can also quantify over all elements of the list
14:53:44 -!- ^v has joined.
14:53:49 <b_jonas> so you can express a statement that something is true for all adjacent pairs of elements of a list, or similar
14:54:19 <b_jonas> but it wouldn't directly let you express that something is true for all elements of a tree, except by going through flat lists
14:55:03 <b_jonas> you can define cons, car, cdr if you want, but you can't directly state a statement that something is true everywhere on a tree, so you can't define whole tree transformations
14:55:17 <b_jonas> you can do anything with a tree too of course, but only by using lists first
14:55:30 <b_jonas> so since they have to use lists in first place, they didn't go on
14:55:56 <oerjan> mhm
14:56:22 <b_jonas> oerjan: maybe, though "weakest" is somewhat subjective
14:56:45 <b_jonas> there is at least one system that is neither weaker neither stronger than RA that you can also use for this
14:57:28 <oerjan> i didn't say you _could_ find the weakest system, i said you _wanted_ to hth
14:57:33 <b_jonas> sure
14:57:49 <b_jonas> anyway, yes, there is some reason to use that system
14:57:59 <b_jonas> or at least some similar system with the same problem
15:00:28 <b_jonas> and even if you use another system, you'll probably run into this same problem
15:01:01 <b_jonas> even if you have a system that has first-class lists, unless it has something like a crazy multi-level tree indexing primitive or something

20:41:15 <fizzie> shachaf: It sounds kuul. I think you should.
20:41:32 <shachaf> Are you?
20:41:50 <fizzie> I'm not really managing anything.
20:43:02 -!- augur has joined.
20:44:04 <fizzie> Also upon further reflection, I don't think I really want monitoring as such, mostly because I don't have anything that gets traffic. I think I'm more interested in just making up arbitrary long-term time series that can then be turned into those wiggly lines, and the monitoring/alerting aspect is more of an afterthought. And that's why I'm using InfluxDB instead of Prometheus.
20:44:14 <fizzie> (I read those threads about long-term storage in Prometheus.)
20:44:27 <shachaf> Makes sense.
20:45:11 <shachaf> And you don't want to join, I guess, is the other constraint.
20:45:54 <shachaf> What sort of query language should you use for querying time series databases?
20:45:59 <shachaf> You should invent a good one.
20:46:27 <shachaf> But I guess first you should stop working at your current employer, so that you can release it.
20:48:32 <fizzie> I'm not entirely sure the query language should be inherently time-oriented.
20:48:50 <fizzie> Speaking of scow, Bazel doesn't have proto_library either.
20:49:04 <shachaf> I didn't specify that it should be.
20:49:21 <shachaf> What does it have?
20:49:48 <fizzie> There's an objc_proto_library, which is documented in be to have "proto_library dependencies", but there's no proto_library.
20:50:19 <fizzie> And there's a proto_lang_toolchain, which "Specifies how a LANG_proto_library rule (e.g., java_proto_library) should invoke the proto-compiler", but there's no java_proto_library either.
20:50:40 <shachaf> You can try https://github.com/pubref/rules_protobuf
20:50:45 <fizzie> (Actually AIUI it does in fact have built-in rules for java_proto_library and friends, but they're undocumented and not working correctly.)
20:51:35 <fizzie> It does have https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/blob/master/tools/build_rules/genproto.bzl
20:52:45 <fizzie> They're supposed to open-source the real proto_library and java_proto_library and such, but it doesn't have those yet.
20:53:14 <shachaf> I tried writing some Buck macros for protoc ones but it was kind of scow.
20:54:08 <shachaf> There's no equivalent of Scowlark
