01:59:54 <boily> int-ello. that doesn't look very safe...
01:59:59 <int-e> why do you have to base64-encode the whole thing, it doesn't make sense.
02:00:19 <shachaf> I don't know, it's not my thing.
02:01:03 <int-e> boily: that's, I guess, the code implementing the game shachaf linked to.
02:01:59 <shachaf> it's a good game
02:02:01 <shachaf> very realistic

02:06:05 <oerjan> <int-e> Hmm, bitcoin looks foamy. <-- wow, it's passed 1 USD / mBTC
02:06:23 <int-e> yes, for the second time in its history.
02:06:40 <shachaf> can i have that in picodollars twh
02:09:59 <int-e> but okay, the base64 mainly seems to be used to obfuscate the text snippets, nothing sinister.
02:10:09 <\oren\> huh, the currency in this game is weird. they use the symbol $ for it, but a beer costs $200
02:10:31 <shachaf> What's weird?
02:10:35 <int-e> maybe it's set 30 years in the future.
02:10:46 <\oren\> int-e: it's set in 2070
02:10:55 <int-e> seems realistic then
02:11:00 <\oren\> why?
02:11:13 <int-e> inflation.
02:11:21 <\oren\> oooh
02:11:27 <\oren\> ouch.
02:12:33 <shachaf> That's quite a bit of inflation.
02:12:58 <oerjan> what's a beer today
02:13:14 <int-e> (It's fun to read novels from the 30s and compare prizes... e.g., expensive private detectives asking for $20 a week!)
02:13:16 <shachaf> Certainly not unprecedented, but a lot for the US.
02:13:23 <int-e> (plus expenses!)
02:13:26 <oerjan> what's a beer today
02:13:33 <Jafet> oerjan: about 0.01 btc
02:13:43 <shachaf> I don't know, but I assume <$20
02:13:51 <oerjan> 10 USD, check
02:13:52 <\oren\> uh, 5 to 7 CAD
02:14:01 <int-e> "the big news is that one of the big name bitcoin businesses just shut down without warning. All customer assets have vanished. The owners are blaming hackers."
02:14:07 <\oren\> a good beer is 7 CAD
02:14:13 <int-e> I have no clue what that could be alluding to!!!!1
02:14:20 <shachaf> Are you playing the game or just reading the code?
02:14:42 <shachaf> It's a good game, you should eval all that code.
02:14:52 <oerjan> listen, i want the price in USD for obvious reason.
02:15:06 <int-e> "You read about a company called Flutterby Labs" -- not very well obfuscated, that one.
02:15:14 <oerjan> but i'll go with $10
02:15:47 <oerjan> > 20 ** (1/(70-16))
02:15:49 <lambdabot> 1.0570442011720849
02:15:55 <oerjan> ok that high
02:16:03 <int-e> Haha. "Flutterby Labs Inc. is a small, fairly new organization in the prepackaged software companies industry located in Mountain View, CA"
02:16:04 <shachaf> int-e: If you play the game, you get to play multiple parallel games, one of them as Flutterby Labs
02:16:18 <shachaf> If I remember correctly?
02:16:25 <oerjan> i think the inflation goal is 2 or 2.5? and the feds have had trouble getting it that high...

02:17:29 <int-e> Neat. "Except Butterfly Labs added a twist. They didn't sell pickaxes. They sold preorders for pickaxes."
02:20:01 <int-e> But the game doesn't mention the GH/J metric, sad.

03:46:31 <\oren\> I actually wonder what sort of user interface will catch on in the next few decades
03:50:17 <\oren\> right now it's touchscreens on everything.
03:50:48 <\oren\> but I've seen people play games using eye tracking software
03:52:03 <\oren\> it seems the trend is toward as little physical effort as possible

04:01:01 <\oren\> forgot to set the CURRENT_YEA
04:12:04 <zzo38> I don't like touch screen; keyboard is a better interface
04:14:18 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Agreed
04:14:32 <hppavilion[1]> I'd prefer not to use mouse, but everything is designed for it and such is the way of the world
04:16:04 <\oren\> I would prefer eye tracking if I could afford the damn thing
04:16:23 <\oren\> eye tracking for the mouse, not the keyboard
04:16:42 <hppavilion[1]> \oren\: Hawking has eye tracking for his keyboard
04:17:08 <hppavilion[1]> I'd also like a chorded keyboard if I could get such a thing
04:17:23 <\oren\> well, technically I can afford it, but it just seems like a waste for what is effectively a prototype
04:17:42 <hppavilion[1]> I *might* be able to set one up with AHK by making it so that any combination of keys followed by a key release types that combination
04:17:45 <hppavilion[1]> OOOh
04:17:58 <hppavilion[1]> And presumably if you don't release all the keys you were holding, the ones you're still holding stick around :D
04:20:59 <hppavilion[1]> So exempli gratia the chords for 'T' and 'H' would vary by a single note, since 'TH' is the most common digraph
04:21:19 <hppavilion[1]> But then again, T is a common letter, so it might be only a single symbol in the first place
04:21:23 <hppavilion[1]> Hymn...
04:23:46 <hppavilion[1]> Let's say that in Monty Pythonian, 'ca' is a common trigraph, but 'c' and 'a' are relatively uncommon outside of that trigraph
04:25:07 <hppavilion[1]> You might bind 'c' to the sequence (on a traditional keyboard with chording added on) asf+j and 'a' to the sequence asf+k
04:25:40 <hppavilion[1]> (the notation here being <contributing notes>+<trigger note>- you depress the contributing notes then press and release the triggering note to type a symbol)
04:27:15 <hppavilion[1]> So you'd do (using an unrelated notation where every time a symbol appears alone it's pressed and appearing immediately before ^ it is released) asfjj^kk^
04:27:29 <hppavilion[1]> And you'd wind up with 'ca' typed.
04:29:43 <oerjan> that's a pretty short trigraph.
04:30:55 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: "a" counts as 4 letters in Monty Pythonian hth
04:31:23 <oerjan> and "c" as -1?

17:01:03 <oerjan> presumably mac terminal doesn't like to show colors as invisible

17:20:16 <\oren\> hmm, so my version of irssi must be old
17:21:09 <oerjan> apparently irssi has a setting for 24 bit colors, but it was off.
17:21:34 <b_jonas> "It's a pity there's no practical way to do polyglot 24-bit color *and* lower bit depths (in such a way things "just work" for everything)..." => ais523 did some research about that. but it's indeed very difficult because if you write the 24-bit color codes with colons, then some terminals don't understand them, and if you write them with semicolons, then linux console will interpret the individual components as codes setting mode flags some of which are
17:21:51 <b_jonas> \ but it's indeed very difficult because if you write the 24-bit color codes with colons, then some terminals don't understand them, and if you write them with semicolons, then linux console will interpret the individual components as codes setting mode flags some of which are harmful so you need to specifically turn them off.
17:23:19 <b_jonas> The value 12 is the most harmful in particular, because "\e[12m" turns on some crazy mode on linux console.
17:24:38 <fizzie> Very colorful.
17:24:45 <fizzie> Was my ping just about HackEgo?
17:25:20 <b_jonas> So you need to explicitly undo it with "\e[10m"
17:25:58 <b_jonas> I don't recall what ais523 decided eventually about polyglots with 24-bit color.
17:27:35 <\oren\> irssi doesn't have any updated documentation, so the best way to figure a lot of stuff out is to use the source
17:27:38 <oerjan> fizzie: yep. it might need the wiki bridge restarted now.
17:27:55 <oerjan> but Gregor fixed the rest.
17:28:11 <oerjan> (well, i assume he didn't fix the bridge, since he didn't make it)
17:28:42 <pikhq> b_jonas: Yup, exactly the sort of thing I was referring to.
17:29:02 <pikhq> You can *just* do 256 color, but I don't think ais523 figured out a way to do it, and I certainly don't see one.
17:29:34 <b_jonas> pikhq: 256 color has a different problem that makes it almost impossible to do as a generic polyglot that works everywhere
17:29:47 <fizzie> oerjan: Thanks for reminding, I didn't think of the bridge at all.
17:30:02 <fizzie> (It may or may not be still alive; I'll check.)
17:31:04 <b_jonas> namely that urxvt can be compiled to support either the 256 color mode or the 80 color mode, and those two use EXACTLY THE SAME FUCKING ESCAPE SEQUENCES BUT WITH A DIFFERENT PALETTE so the same escape sequence can set one of two unrelated colors.
17:31:12 <pikhq> ...
17:31:35 <b_jonas> You tell the terminal that you want color number 75, and then you get either the 75th color of the series of 80, or the 75th color from the series of 256
17:31:38 <b_jonas> brilliant, eh?
17:32:05 <\oren\> brillant

17:36:31 <rdococ> amazing
17:36:34 <rdococ> brilliant
17:36:39 <b_jonas> And these are just the saner things he had to deal with about terminals, because there are terminals where the problem isn't with fancy multi-color support, but basic functions broken.

17:41:53 <b_jonas> possibly patch it a bit.
17:42:00 <b_jonas> easier than writing a completely new one.

17:42:11 <b_jonas> I run a patched xterm with custom configs myself on linux.
17:42:12 <zzo38> I wrote on http://zzo38computer.org/textfile/miscellaneous/terminalemulator what feature I want to implement.
17:42:20 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[Cool]] https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=50641&oldid=50640 * IQBigBang * (+85)
17:42:58 <b_jonas> zzo38: let me see
17:43:06 <oerjan> fizzie: we seem to be getting a lot of new users these days
17:43:28 <b_jonas> "Nearly full support for DEC and Tektronix terminal emulation, including
17:43:28 <b_jonas> Sixel and ReGIS graphics, full DEC technical set (including pieces of the
17:43:31 <b_jonas> big Sigma), Tektronix APL mode, downloadable fonts, etc" => whoa
17:43:37 <fizzie> oerjan: Maybe this Internet thing is finally hitting it big time.
17:43:38 <b_jonas> what do you need that for?
17:44:00 <zzo38> To be completed. Tektronix mode may be omitted, but the other stuff should not be omitted.
17:44:26 <b_jonas> (I even debugged an ugly bug out of urxvt once. Those were the days.)
17:45:14 <b_jonas> "Use different mouse cursor shape when mouse events are enabled (using
17:45:14 <b_jonas> XC_xterm when not mouse mode, and XC_arrow when mouse clicking is enabled;
17:45:17 <b_jonas> may be configurable)" => oh! good idea
17:45:52 <APic> *shrug*
17:46:02 <zzo38> Yes, that is a feature xterm doesn't have and that I think would be good.
17:46:27 <b_jonas> "Pipe data to an external program (you configure what program and what arguments) to implementing printer controller mode; this external program receives all of the same ANSI data that the terminal will receive" => and another external program controlling the ticker tape puncher?
17:47:13 <b_jonas> zzo38: you could patch some of these features to existing good terminal emulators (urxvt and screen are the ones I like)
17:47:21 * APic has a Sticker on his Bike where a Printer prints ANSI.SYS or something
17:47:57 <zzo38> Yes you could add such an external program if you want it to control a ticker tape puncher, although this is intended for sending to a printer, but could also be use for others.
17:48:04 <b_jonas> "Support for any X visual classes (monochrome, grayscale, indexed colours, programmable indexed colours, true colours)" => I think urxvt has that
17:49:27 <b_jonas> (and other features, like controlling with X resources, many xterm extensions)
17:50:15 <\oren\> the main feature I think terminals lack is more sophisticated graphics
17:50:25 <b_jonas> "Keyboard commands for ... United Kingdom mode, local mode, VT52 mode, ..." => what the heck is that?
17:50:53 <fizzie> b_jonas: The first one is a mode where you can't type mean things about the Queen.
17:51:11 <APic>
17:51:17 <fizzie> Okay, maybe that's more of a "Thailand mode".
17:51:35 <b_jonas> "Environment variable with process ID of terminal" => you can implement that with a small wrapper between the terminal and the shell or other program it starts, one that execves the program in its argument but saves its ppid to an env-var
17:51:37 <zzo38> No that is not what it means. United Kingdom mode mean you can type and display the British pounds sign.
17:52:02 <b_jonas> or even with a shell command like export TERMINAL_PID=$PPID
17:52:17 <\oren\> instead of #?
17:52:20 <zzo38> Yes, that can work.
17:52:37 <zzo38> \oren\: Yes. It is a feature that actual DEC terminals have
17:55:00 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[Starfish]] M https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=50642&oldid=50639 * Redstarcoder * (+15) /* Dive / rise */ added fisherman to list of movement instructions
17:55:23 <b_jonas> What I'd like is to have three separate displayed colors corresponding to each of the palette of approx 18 colors: one used for background, one for foreground when the background is dark, and one for foreground when the background is light. This would let most color combinations become readable.
17:56:15 <zzo38> b_jonas: Ah, that is a interesting idea I suppose. But may be considered more complicated than it should be. I do not know yet.
17:56:34 <zzo38> (Even if you are not in United Kingdom mode you can still display the British pounds sign when selecting VT100 character graphics set)
17:56:56 <\oren\> b_jonas: I have simply designed a pallette that has good display properties
17:57:38 <\oren\> in particular, the light and dark versions differ in hue as well as lightness to help readability
17:58:05 * hue nods
17:58:11 <b_jonas> \oren\: yes, I have such a palette too, and other people have designed more, but some scheme like this (it might not be exactly what I described) could be even better
17:58:54 <zzo38> One of my idea is that for example SIGUSR1 may reset the terminal or partially reset the terminal, so that the shell can automatically do that after a program exits in order to avoid problem with programs that mess up the terminal mode.
17:58:57 <b_jonas> zzo38: is rewrapping lines when you resize the window, like urxvt or the windows 10 terminal does, a goal?
17:59:07 <zzo38> b_jonas: No.
17:59:29 <b_jonas> put that in non-goals then
17:59:32 <zzo38> OK
17:59:51 <b_jonas> but dynamically resizing the terminal is still a goal, right?
18:00:01 <b_jonas> and a user-configurable palette too
18:01:29 <b_jonas> "One of my idea is that for example SIGUSR1 may reset the terminal or partially reset the terminal," => the problem with that is that the signal isn't necessarily ordered with writes to the terminal, so if both happen quickly (and they will often do when a program exits then the shell writes something) then the terminal won't know when to reset.
18:02:00 <b_jonas> it would be better to use something that goes in-band
18:02:03 <zzo38> To resize the terminal by escape codes to at least 80x24 and 132x24 are goals; possibly others too. Although these features may be disabled by user configuration. Also of course the user can always resize the terminal window and to set the palette in the X resources.
18:02:22 <b_jonas> ok
18:03:00 <zzo38> (The user can resize the terminal to any size; it doesn't have to be only 80x24)
18:03:15 <pikhq> It's a pity there's not a modernish spec for terminal escapes.
18:03:22 <b_jonas> "the user can always resize the terminal window" => um, ok, but I mean the user should be able to resize the size of the terminal grid in characters, not only the window
18:03:51 <zzo38> Yes it does change the size of the terminal grid in characters.
18:03:52 <pikhq> i.e. one including what most people and terminals actually use, with little disregard for ancient historical practice or unused, unimplemented features.
18:05:09 <b_jonas> Oh! Above when I takled about broken terminals, I forgot to rant about the windows 10 terminal's vt102-like escape code support!
18:06:11 <b_jonas> The windows 10 terminal recognizes certain escapes, in particular "\e[6,3H" and "\e[H" works, but "\e[6H" is treated as a no-op.
18:07:13 <zzo38> Using in-band would help (and would avoid needing to use a signal), although then there is the problem to be confuse with incompleted codes, although there may be a way to work around that too, perhaps involving the ASCII "cancel" control, as well as maybe others too.
18:09:06 <b_jonas> While it treats most DEC-like sequences it doesn't recognize (and there's many of those) as a no-op; it interprets "\x18" and "\x00" and "\x1a" and "\x0f" as some printable char taking up a grid space rather than a no-op.
18:10:22 <b_jonas> Also, it uses the ugly style wrapping where if you write a character to the last column, the cursor is immediately moved to the next line, rather than kept in that row past the end of the line.
18:10:52 <b_jonas> zzo38: I wonder if some tty-related magic ioctl can be used for this
18:11:22 <zzo38> b_jonas: I thought of that too but don't know if any such thing is possible.
18:13:08 <b_jonas> doesn't tcdrain allow this somehow?
18:13:26 <b_jonas> I mean, tcdrain together with some other side-band mechanism (not signals)
18:13:38 <b_jonas> nah, probably it doesn't
18:14:03 <b_jonas> oh
18:14:12 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[Starfish]] M https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=50643&oldid=50642 * Redstarcoder * (+11) /* *> */ note mirror as outdated
18:15:22 <b_jonas> Perhaps you could use a protocol where the shell sends a long random number on a side-band, and a fixed escape sequence with that random number in it in the normal terminal stream, and the terminal makes sure to parse and find that escape sequence even when it's in a strange state that would normally not find that escape sequence.
18:16:30 <zzo38> That seems complicated
18:17:11 <b_jonas> sure it is
18:17:45 <b_jonas> it's probably easier to ensure that the terminal just can't be set into a mode where it doesn't listen to an ordinary init escape sequence (where you get to choose the exact string for that escape sequence)
18:18:20 <zzo38> Yes, that is what I suggested above about in-band, to use some sequence that can ensure it will work.
18:18:32 <zzo38> I should then just need to ensure that such a sequence exists.
18:18:54 <b_jonas> Or possibly use a break for this, for a linux pty can detect that I think.
18:19:21 <b_jonas> In-band has the advantage that it can work through ssh.
18:20:04 <zzo38> Yes, that is that.
18:20:21 <zzo38> In-band probably is best
18:22:14 <b_jonas> ah no, linux pty can't detect a break. it can detect some other special signals including flow control that the slave can send (on a local host, not necessarily through ssh) with ioctl TIOCPKT
18:22:42 <zzo38> As far as I know a break signal is not possible with pseudoterminals anyways. But I thought to implement it anyways so that when the break key is pushed it will read the IGNBRK and BRKINT flags in order to determine what to do.
18:23:18 <zzo38> (and also PARMRK)

18:31:42 <zzo38> Is this possible to do?
18:40:15 <zzo38> I also thought that in response to a DECREQTPARM request it can use tcgetispeed(), tcgetospeed(), and tcgetattr() in order to determine how to respond. You can therefore change the reported baud rate if you have a slow connection to a telnet server in order to tell them to disable fancy stuff.

19:37:51 <\oren\> also why do so many flights have stops in atlanta
19:40:21 <\oren\> then again, a flight to ice land for only 240 canadian dollars is pretty impressive
