00:01:28 <kmc> sure is
00:01:31 <kmc> what about it particularly?
00:02:02 <b_jonas> little random stuff all the time, whenever I read or watch anything about america on the internet
00:02:24 <b_jonas> like how they have keyholes mounted such that the cut part of the key faces up, rather than down
00:03:53 <oerjan> logically, it's only because you're biased to think hungary is normal
00:03:59 <b_jonas> oerjan: yes
00:06:04 <fizzie> Something that surprised me here is that all apartment doors open towards the inside, while in Finland they all open towards the outside. (Well, "outside", I mean the staircase/corridor, but outside of the apartment anyway.)
00:06:37 <shachaf> `? america
00:06:38 <oerjan> <fizzie> FireFly: The context is that it all works on many browsers, with the exception of IE, where (AIUI) the scrolling doesn't work and the anchors are considered case-insensitive. Actually, I guess those might be the same problem? I haven't paid too much attention either. <-- yep, it scrolls, but to the first case-insensitive match
00:06:39 <HackEso> This wisdom entry had to be removed due to a DMCA takedown notice.
00:07:05 <shachaf> oerjan: Did the workaround work?
00:07:11 <oerjan> shachaf: yes
00:07:19 <shachaf> turing-gödel
00:08:20 <fizzie> oerjan: I see. I did consider setting up a second set of non-case-sensitive anchors, using those "by default" (as in, for the links you get when you click on the nickname), and then including the old "l..." anchors only in older pages that may or may not have been linked to before. But that seems like a bit of a bother.
00:08:27 <oerjan> fizzie: i'm pretty sure opening towards the outside is a fire safety requirement at least in norway. there was a very famous church fire where lots of people died because they didn't.
00:09:04 <fizzie> oerjan: Public buildings I think do it here too, but private apartment exterior doors are different.
00:09:38 <oerjan> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grue_Church_fire
00:10:08 <oerjan> i suppose.
00:11:40 <fizzie> Internet seems to have a bunch of articles about this, but no conclusive answers.
00:11:47 <fizzie> "Why do front doors open out in Sweden?"
00:12:50 <fizzie> They suggest it's because you get less snow inside when the door opens outwards.
00:14:01 <fizzie> There's a lot of these odd little "it's mostly arbitrary, and they just do it differently here" things.
00:15:34 <b_jonas> fizzie: exactly. like how in some strange places, even in Europe, light switches are at waist height, not at shoulder height.
00:18:55 <oerjan> hm my light switches are waist height.
00:19:30 <fizzie> The ones here are sort of chest-height.
00:19:32 <pikhq> Uh, since when are light switches anywhere near shoulder height?
00:19:44 <pikhq> Yeah, that's about chest height.
00:20:10 <pikhq> Bit lower than that, but above waist height.
00:20:26 <pikhq> Light switches here are kinda at... convenient to operate with hands height?
00:22:01 <oerjan> hungarians always use their noses hth
00:22:14 <oerjan> very practical when carrying something.
00:22:24 <fizzie> Another surprise: kerbside collection of trash.
00:22:41 <oerjan> @wn kerb
00:22:42 <lambdabot> *** "kerb" wn "WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006)"
00:22:42 <lambdabot> kerb
00:22:42 <lambdabot> n 1: an edge between a sidewalk and a roadway consisting of a
00:22:42 <lambdabot> line of curbstones (usually forming part of a gutter) [syn:
00:22:42 <lambdabot> {curb}, {curbing}, {kerb}]
00:23:01 <fizzie> Back in Finland I don't think that happens anywhere, it's always a bin of some sort.
00:23:10 <oerjan> ic
00:23:15 <fizzie> Here is just piles of bags on the streets.
00:23:21 <oerjan> huh
00:24:34 <oerjan> i think here christmas trees are just put on the curb next to the bin, as a special case once a year.
00:24:56 -!- arseniiv has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
00:25:09 <oerjan> they may have been more lenient about it before started charging people based on their bin size
00:25:17 <oerjan> *+they
00:25:32 <fizzie> I guess "kerbside collection" might also mean that thing where you have your own house with a driveway and a smaller bin where it meets the street, which does happen in Finland too, especially in less urban areas.
00:26:14 <fizzie> But here it's bags on the pavement where pedestrians walk.
00:27:05 <b_jonas> bins are usually used here, with certain exceptions
00:29:06 <oerjan> where i live now has underground containers, which may not have been such a good idea because the one for paper is clearly undersized.
00:29:26 <b_jonas> oerjan: oh, I've seen those in France, and also some in Sweden
00:29:53 <oerjan> and then the garbage truck comes and lifts up the whole thing
00:30:06 <fizzie> Are these those round things?
00:30:10 <b_jonas> lifting up happens here too, but not from underground
00:30:11 <b_jonas> fizzie: yes
00:30:51 <fizzie> You get them in Finland too, for some reason especially harbours.
00:30:58 <fizzie> Haven't seen any here.
00:31:36 <fizzie> The "Molok®-waste containers"
00:31:50 <oerjan> i thought they were cubical but i may not have been paying attention. on top there's a token-triggered automaton to open it
00:31:59 <fizzie> With a "Genuine and original Deep Collection® method".
00:32:24 <fizzie> https://www.molok.com/
00:32:44 <fizzie> I'm sure there are others too, and looks like Molok has cubical ones as well.
00:33:41 <oerjan> that's not our brand.
00:34:54 <fizzie> I'm not even sure the ones I've seen are genuine Molok products, but my father calls all of them that anyway.
00:35:48 <fizzie> In fact I didn't know it was a brand, I always thought the name was some sort of reference to Moloch.
00:36:14 <fizzie> Not quite sure how that would work, mythologically speaking.
00:38:04 <fizzie> (It's a Finnish company so makes sense I'd've seen them there.)
00:40:37 <oerjan> i've seen moloks elsewhere in down (i found the name amusing because moloch)
00:40:41 <oerjan> *town
00:44:00 <oerjan> from google images i conclude there are way too many brands.
00:46:43 <fizzie> I once borrowed a van from Melkisedek Oy. The hand brake didn't work, and instead of the owner's manual there was a Bible in the glove box.
00:46:56 <fizzie> On the other hand, it was very cheap.
00:50:42 <oerjan> ah searching on the local garbage collection website found a picture https://trv.no/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/nedgravd_container--800x600@2x.jpg
00:51:44 <oerjan> that's exactly the same
00:51:47 <oerjan> afaict
00:53:39 <oerjan> i think melkisedek at least was a supposedly good guy

16:05:19 <zzo38> I have not programmed in ZIL or Inform, but I know Z-machine programming and have made a few implementations of Z-machine. I have also hand optimized a subroutine in Zork I once (from only the assembly language code), but do not remember what it was. I also wrote the "Tricky Document", which describes many tricks and optimizations for Z-machine code, many of which are not used as far as I know.

16:20:30 <zzo38> Somehow I have a piece of a ZIL code in my computer. Since I know Z-machine programming I can guess what it is doing; it seems to be capitalizing a room name to display in the status window. One line says <SET N </ <WINGET 1 ,K-W-XSIZE> ,GL-SPACE-WIDTH>>; WINGET is an instruction specific to YZIP, so presumably this is YZIP code. (Also, presumably the compiler would optimize out the SET instruction; the DIV instruction can set the variable directl

19:09:27 <zzo38> If my character (Ziveruskex) spit poison do you think it is sense if someone who does not have red blood may be resisted or immune? Once a drider was immune. I think a spider has blue blood, isn't it?
19:15:54 <b_jonas> spiders use poison themselves, so maybe that's why they're immune
19:16:41 <zzo38> But I think it is a different poison probably
19:18:06 <b_jonas> oh yeah, spiders are not immune
19:18:16 <b_jonas> because there are cannibal spiders
19:18:28 <b_jonas> also http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/monstrousSpider.htm doesn't say they're immune
19:20:39 <b_jonas> also I'm re-reading Jules Verne's "La Jangada", and at one point it tells that a tribe of natives fight with their blowpipe projectiles tipped with curare poison, and describes the effects of curare and how it's made
