01:20:10 <gerzytet> "tries to guess which word is the key", I thought that meant it would try to guess what you're describing
01:20:13 <gerzytet> whoops
01:26:34 <fizzie> It's suitably surreal to be a wisdom entry nevertheless; but the depluralization went wrong there.

01:27:03 <HackEso> No output.

01:28:57 <gerzytet> I cracked myself up afterwards that it now thinks a 'fungu' is a species of fungus, so that's good enough

01:48:36 <zzo38> You can't depluralize very well, even if the program is complicated, especially if you do not know the context. Making the plural however is more easily to do (although even then it might not be what you wanted).
01:48:41 <ais523> b_jonas: we use JPC-RR for TASing, not DOSbox
01:48:56 <ais523> there was a TAS created on DOSbox once but it was really hacky and thus possibly didn't control the date and time at all
01:50:56 <zzo38> ais523: Do you know if it would work to override the interrupt table to control the date/time? (not for TASing though; just for other purpose) (Does DOSBOX even support TSR? Even if not, it could probably be done, if overriding the interrupt table works at all.)
01:53:11 <ais523> I would be surprised if it didn't support TSR
01:53:25 <ais523> whether overriding the interrupt table would work would depend on how the game read the date and titme
01:53:42 <ais523> you can imagine programs that read the RTC chip directly without using DOS's interrupt-based API
01:53:54 <ais523> but if they're using interrupts to ask what the date and time are, overriding the interrupt table would work
01:54:26 <ais523> another possibility might be to use some sort of wrapper around DOSbox to control DOSbox's idea of the real date and time
01:56:21 <ais523> note that dates and times on files are probably taken from the filesystem, so changing the running program's or DOSbox's idea of the time will probably not change the timestamps for created files
01:57:36 <zzo38> Of course, another way would be to modify DOSbox to implement the date/time setting functions, I suppose; although then if there is a new version and they didn't merge those functions into the official version then you will have to do it by yourself instead.
01:58:37 <zzo38> ais523: If you use a disk image file then it might change the timestamps for created files (if the date/time function was even implemented at all)
01:58:42 <ais523> DOSbox doesn't seem to emulate DOS's "date" command (which I assume would be implemented by a file date.com)
02:01:03 <zzo38> The DOS function call to set the date/time doesn't work.
02:02:06 <zzo38> (I wrote a short program to do so, and it doesn't work. I also tried doing it in BASIC, and in BASIC it doesn't work either. If you type TIME$="06:00:00" and then ?TIME$ it will not remember the time setting.)
02:22:40 <gerzytet> what's with all the jokes about Taneb on the wisdom dictionary
02:23:56 <shachaf> What jokes?
02:25:55 <gerzytet> `? tanebvention
02:25:56 <HackEso> Tanebventions include necessity, Go, submarine jousting, Fueue, the universe, metar, sand, dragons, persistence, the BBC, _46bit, progress, sanity, Italian, the grace period, the limerick, ruin, and this sentence. See also tanebventions: maths or tanebventions: foods. He never invents anything involving sex.
02:26:12 <gerzytet> `? people who taneb is not
02:26:14 <HackEso> elliott, a rabbi, Mark Zuckerberg, James Bond. Pending approval: Shigeru Miyamoto.
02:26:27 <gerzytet> and a few more
02:29:06 <gerzytet> also, why does https://hack.esolangs.org/repo/file/tip/wisdom/ha have a different permission setting than any of the other files?
02:38:01 <ais523> gerzytet: I'm personally not a fan about the wisdom database, but most of the anomalies like tanebventions are originally bad jokes that then turned into running jokes and got more and more elaborate
02:39:44 <esowiki> [[User:Esolime]] N https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?oldid=61410 * Esolime * (+123) Created page with "Hi! I'm Esolime, and I make grid-based esolangs out of toys and games. I even make esophyses (esoteric physics simulators)."
02:39:56 <ais523> I prefer learndbs to contain useful information rather than jokes, but people enjoy writing joke entries more even when they aren't funny (or even comprehensible to people who don't know the context)
02:41:34 <shachaf> I only like oerjan's wisdom jokes.
02:41:38 <gerzytet> I find the absurdity of the database kinda funny
02:43:01 <ais523> we used to do quality control on the quotes by periodically picking 5 at random and deleting the worst (unless they were all good)
02:43:11 <ais523> but we aren't adding quotes nearly as quickly nowadays so that's less necessary
02:43:18 <ais523> I'm not convinced we've /ever/ done quality control on the wisdom though
02:43:24 <shachaf> let's do it
02:43:25 <shachaf> `5 w
02:43:28 <HackEso> 1/1:toilet//toilet is elliot spelled backwards, without the extra l, with a t at the end. \ up//Up is a direction away from the center of gravity of a celestial object. \ imperative language//Imperative languages tell you what to do. \ inverness//Inverness is a city in Scotland. The ring road isn't multiplicative. \ itymology//Itymology is the science of understanding the true meaning of a statement.
02:43:45 <shachaf> that first one is p. sketchy
02:43:48 <ais523> can I delete all five? :-D
02:44:04 <shachaf> "itymology" is such a good word, though!
02:44:52 <ais523> feel free to delete any of them

03:40:02 <shachaf> Why?
03:41:52 <zzo38> Working with a command-line interface or batch interface can often be faster and more useful

13:13:48 <kmc> well that's ok, i'm not blaming you

13:24:24 <kmc> there are also lichens with macroscopic (though small) mushroom like fruiting bodies
13:24:39 <kmc> and that comes from the fungus part of the lichen, so I figure it should count as a mushroom
13:24:50 <kmc> and some slime molds do it too but those aren't fungi technically
13:25:48 <kmc> they are "protists" which just means "weird eukaryotes that we can't classify as animal, plant, or fungus"

23:44:17 <shachaf> Did you know that defining a macro starting with the letter E followed by an uppercase letter is undefined behavior in C?
23:45:35 <kmc> no
23:45:42 <kmc> is that because of errno?
23:45:54 <shachaf> It is.
23:46:16 <kmc> ok
23:46:24 <kmc> so much undefined behavior
23:51:01 <pikhq> shachaf: I bet it's only undefined behavior if you include the right headers.
23:51:28 <pikhq> Which admittedly is going to be a lot of headers.
23:51:44 <shachaf> I think it's the case even if you don't.
23:58:48 <pikhq> I see no evidence of that.
23:59:26 <pikhq> I see it saying errno.h may define additional macro definitions beginning with E[0-9A-Z].
23:59:46 <pikhq> But that appears to only be reserved if you include errno.h (indirectly or otherwise).
23:59:49 -!- arseniiv has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
23:59:58 <pikhq> And since they are explicitly macros, you are safe if you use #undef first.
