16:33:06 <b_jonas> I should collect all my quines somewhere, because currently I'm keeping them all around various wobsites and mailing lists and stuff, and keep having to search for them
16:34:37 <b_jonas> by the way
16:35:11 <b_jonas> shachaf, oerjan: the languages in the two entries I recently added to the esowiki, do they count as esoteric on topic stuff?
16:35:30 <b_jonas> (I don't care if they count as languages, because the esowiki has non-language articles too. I'm asking if they're esoteric.)
16:36:16 <oerjan> i think they count as background articles, at least
16:38:38 <b_jonas> There are about ten more languages I should write about, listed on my user page, but I'm lazy.
16:38:53 <b_jonas> s/, / /
16:39:16 <oerjan> . o O ( what's polyunsaturated )
16:42:51 <b_jonas> oerjan: the original TAOCP advertises MIX with the tagline that it's "the world's first polyunsaturated computer", which is supposed to be a parody of margarine advertisments at that time,
16:43:29 <b_jonas> and that's a good guess, because even after 50 years, margarine is sometimes advertised by how it has unsaturated fats, which is healthy for your heart or something,
16:43:39 <b_jonas> except these days they also say it has trans fats.
16:44:08 <b_jonas> And the descriptions of MMIX by Knuth play on this.
16:44:22 <oerjan> ah
16:44:48 <oerjan> i knew the fat meaning, but didn't understand it was a joke
16:45:36 <b_jonas> I don't know if there's a hidden meaning about computer architecture, I don't think there is
16:45:59 <oerjan> seems the xkcd forum is already all over the temperature/pressure mistake
16:46:42 <b_jonas> oerjan: wait, there's a second new xkcdwhatif? nobody told me
16:46:46 <b_jonas> I saw only 153
16:46:50 <b_jonas> but there's a 154 out
16:47:03 <oerjan> b_jonas: what did you think my makelist noise above was about :P
16:47:30 <oerjan> admittedly you weren't pinged by the original, because the list didn't exist yet
16:47:39 <oerjan> `xkcdwhatiflist 154
16:47:40 <HackEgo> xkcdwhatiflist 154: oerjan b_jonas
16:47:41 <oerjan> THERE
16:48:00 <int-e> oh, have whatifs gone irregular?
16:48:05 <Taneb> oerjan, can you add me to that list please
16:48:12 <oerjan> int-e: they have been irregular a long time
16:48:21 <b_jonas> oerjan: I did say `xkcdwhatiflist 153 back then. even if the program doesn't exist, someone might have set a watch/highlight on ^`xkcdwhatiflist in the channel directly
16:48:27 <b_jonas> int-e: had a really long hiatus

16:48:45 <b_jonas> oerjan: so I assumed you made the list because of 153
16:48:48 <oerjan> i guess i shouldn't use that

16:50:25 <int-e> (scnr)
16:51:02 <b_jonas> by the way, if you accept https://www.xkcd.com/397/ which says that Mythbusters is sloppy with its actual science, but still valuable because they teach the basic principle of experiments,
16:51:28 <b_jonas> then the logical conclusion is that xkcdwhatif is completely worthless, since it is sloppy with its actual science and doesn't do experiments at all
16:52:32 <Taneb> b_jonas, it creates excitement about science
16:52:53 <quintopia> its not worthless. it is a good basic primer in fermi estimation
16:53:04 <b_jonas> yeah, I know it's not worthless
16:53:22 <quintopia> so you agree that 397 is wrong
16:53:37 <Taneb> quintopia, I believe 397 is correct but incomplete
16:53:43 <quintopia> so do I
16:53:47 <oerjan> b_jonas: i did indeed see your `xkcdwhatiflist 153. although i had already seen the whatif itself, since i usually check it on fridays.
16:53:49 <b_jonas> it's certainly much better than the unresearched fast media articles that http://www.phdcomics.com/comics/archive.php?comicid=1174 describes,
16:53:56 <b_jonas> but that's what you'd think from xkcd 397
16:54:21 <b_jonas> oerjan: on fridays? but it used to be posted on wednesdays originally, when it was regular
16:54:59 <b_jonas> the main xkcd is sort of still regular: it is posted on almost every monday, wednesday, friday, but is often late
16:55:08 <Taneb> I still need to make the article about COMPLEX not a stub
16:55:21 <b_jonas> so it looks more like it's posted tuesday, thursday, saturday and backdated these days
16:55:27 <Taneb> Irregular Webcomic updated an hour late yesterday!
16:55:31 <Taneb> I was distraught
16:55:51 <b_jonas> oh, that reminds me, esowiki question:
16:56:15 <b_jonas> if I want to create an article for Knuth's MIX too, what should its title be, or what should the existing [[MIX]] get renamed?
16:56:39 <oerjan> `? scnr
16:56:40 <Taneb> "MIX (Knuth)"?
16:56:40 <HackEgo> scnr? ¯\(°​_o)/¯
16:56:56 <b_jonas> Taneb: but isn't Knuth's the one that deserves the unparenthisized title?
16:57:11 <quintopia> that is the way we usually handle this taneb
16:57:24 <Taneb> b_jonas, background information is less important than an actual esolang
16:57:27 <quintopia> b_jonas: both should be parenthesized
16:57:33 -!- digitalcold has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
16:57:51 <Taneb> Alternatively, merge it into the article on MMIX, and move that to MIX and MMIX
16:58:05 <quintopia> see e.g. Clue (Keymaker) and Clue (Oklopol)
16:58:17 <b_jonas> Taneb: I think MIX and MMIX are an actual esolang, since they are intended for purposes other than writing production programs in them
16:58:46 <oerjan> Taneb: did you notice that iwc (and also postcard) updated _twice_ on wednesday?
16:58:46 <b_jonas> as opposed to perl, which has a much uglier designed, but was always intended for real uses
16:59:03 <Taneb> b_jonas, then are Scratch and BASIC esolangs also, as they are designed for education like MMIX
16:59:07 <Taneb> oerjan, I did not!
16:59:14 <Taneb> oerjan, most irregular
16:59:30 <b_jonas> Taneb: I don't think merging MIX and MMIX would be a good idea, they're so different (that's why there was a need for a new system in first place)
16:59:40 <Taneb> That is a good point
16:59:49 <oerjan> b_jonas: i do it on fridays out of habit because when i checked it on wednesdays it was often too early
17:00:00 <b_jonas> Taneb: I think BASIC wasn't only intended for education, but because they could implement it in very small microcomputers with small RAM
17:00:05 <b_jonas> Lisp too
17:00:13 <b_jonas> um
17:00:17 <b_jonas> forget lisp
17:00:19 <b_jonas> BASIC at least
17:00:26 <b_jonas> I don't know about Scratch or Logo stuff
17:00:59 <rdococ> wait, scratch _esolangs_?
17:01:14 <rdococ> wait wait wait wait,
17:01:35 <quintopia> oerjan: way inbon the wiki naming issue please
17:01:40 <b_jonas> oerjan: what? twice? no way
17:01:44 <quintopia> *weigh in on
17:01:46 <rdococ> a (derivative of (a programming language designed to teach children how to program without the issues of syntax)) intentionally designed to be >esoteric<?
17:01:58 <rdococ> did I read that right?
17:02:38 <b_jonas> oerjan: wow indeed, it did post two reruns. I didn't notice
17:02:46 <b_jonas> I totally missed the first one
17:04:00 <b_jonas> thanks for mentioning
17:04:25 <oerjan> Taneb: fortunately, i obsessively always load the previous comic to check if i've missed one :P
17:05:01 <oerjan> (although that gets a bit intertwined with the separate new/rerun threads)
17:05:53 <b_jonas> oerjan: sometimes I do that, but I still think I missed some normal updates occasionally
17:06:47 <b_jonas> also, you'd think people would point out the double update on the forums
17:07:40 * b_jonas checks the alternate universe Darths & Droids strips -- no, they didn't also give an update to those to replace the missing update
17:08:13 -!- digitalcold has joined.
17:08:39 <oerjan> <b_jonas> I totally missed the first one <-- perhaps you should make the forum thread for it, others may have missed it too (unless someone did since last i looked)
17:09:55 <b_jonas> oerjan: so is the flame about temperature vs perssure about in 154 the phrase "ice isn't even stable at those low temperatures", or is it about the inaccuracies in 153 of the asymptotics when the hole is deep?
17:14:35 <oerjan> b_jonas: postcard also updated twice. i don't quite remember about sromg.
17:14:53 <oerjan> oh i think dinosaur whiteboard did too
17:15:08 <b_jonas> oerjan: I don't follow postcard, and I'm quite sure planet didn't double-post
17:15:32 <oerjan> yeah, the weekly ones didn't.
17:15:38 <b_jonas> oerjan: can you feedback about [[MIX]] naming?
17:15:53 <oerjan> i think knuth's MIX shouldn't get the main name.
17:16:36 <oerjan> b_jonas: it's not a flame, but it's the ice thing
17:16:46 <oerjan> (i haven't checked the other thread)
17:16:49 <b_jonas> oerjan: ok, what then? [[MIX]] disambig page?
17:17:19 <b_jonas> ([[x86]], [[GHC]], [[GCC]] have a non-eso and an eso meaning, that's different)
17:19:14 <oerjan> i'm not very firm on whether to use disambig page or hatnote.
17:20:15 <b_jonas> ok
17:21:28 <b_jonas> I should try to do slippery slope on this, by making a new esoteric language named Intercal, refuse to call it any other name, and demand that it gets the [[Intercal]] title because it's clearly more esoteric than Intercal
17:21:55 <oerjan> i don't think so.
17:22:36 <b_jonas> oh, I should do it with Brainfuck instead
17:22:39 <b_jonas> not Intercal
17:32:38 <rdococ> just don't make it a derivative
17:37:29 <b_jonas> of course not. that would defeat the point
17:38:16 <b_jonas> I hate the brainfuck derivatives, and there's an idea for an esolang I had wanted to make for a while, but the most elegant way I could make it is to make it a brainfuck variant, and I don't want that.
17:38:41 <zzo38> I think a disambiguation page could be good idea
17:38:45 <b_jonas> I should probably just make it an underload variant.
17:38:50 <b_jonas> zzo38: ok
17:40:11 <oerjan> b_jonas: pretty sure you posted that in the wrong thread hth
17:40:19 <zzo38> I alto think that on the article for MMIX they should also be added the list of the instruction set.

17:41:54 <zzo38> If you want to make a new esoteric language named Intercal that gets the [[Intercal]] title, I think that should be fine as long as it also contains a link at the top to [[INTERCAL]] in case that is what you were looking for instead.
17:42:04 <b_jonas> zzo38: I don't understand what you say about MMIX and instruction set
17:42:37 <zzo38> b_jonas: I mean the table of the instructions should be included.

17:44:28 <zzo38> To have more completion.
17:45:01 <b_jonas> at some point we should synchronize http://esolangs.org/wiki/Language_list and http://esolangs.org/wiki/Category:Languages , there are languages on one but not the other both ways, plus we should use the other categories to find all languages that are on neither
17:47:49 <b_jonas> zzo38: feel free to edit the article if you want such a table

18:02:53 <oerjan> it's really quite amazing how close rot13 gets to a hypothetically pronounceable language given it preserves no vowels
18:02:58 <zzo38> A preprocessor for Checkout will be needed in order to do it.
18:04:32 <zzo38> I would think that it would also mean you do not need a separate vertex program and fragment program, and perhaps some other stuff in OpenGL also then you won't need anymore.
18:04:42 <b_jonas> Obfuscated programming questions. You know how buddy-blocked (twin) memory allocator pool work, right? All allocated and free blocks are aligned power of two gross sized, free blocks of each size are listed, two free slots get combined if they are the same size and would form an aligned block of one larger size,
18:05:09 <b_jonas> allocation tries to get a block from the free list of the right size, if that fails, allocates a block one larger and frees half of it.
18:05:23 <b_jonas> Questoin: is there a fibonacci (rather than binary) version of this?
18:05:31 <b_jonas> How hard would it be to implement one?
18:06:25 <quintopia> ive never heard of it, but ive implemented something roughly ewuivalent
18:06:29 <quintopia> very easy
18:06:32 <zzo38> b_jonas: I don't know
18:06:53 <b_jonas> quintopia: um, you've implemented the binary or the fibonacci one?
18:07:08 <b_jonas> many people know about the binary from Knuth's book
18:07:13 <\oren\> I once tried to make a fibonacci heapsort but i failed for some reason I can't recall

18:07:56 <quintopia> ive implemented a discrete fibonacci search, which involves dividing a range of integers into blocks of fibonacci size
18:08:00 -!- Cale has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
18:08:10 <b_jonas> \oren\: that might make sense, since there are quaternary heaps that are like binary heaps but with four children, and you could have ternary heaps and ternary triplet-buddy-block allocators.
18:08:20 <quintopia> transforming it into an allocation scheme seems not too difficult
18:08:44 <b_jonas> quintopia: I think it would involve the Zeckendorf representation of the addresses
18:09:03 <b_jonas> or something similar
18:09:14 <quintopia> that would certainly speed up indexing
18:09:33 <b_jonas> what? no
18:09:37 <b_jonas> if you want speed, just use the binary version
18:09:48 <b_jonas> the fibonacci version isn't really better
18:10:24 <quintopia> im not comparing to binary
18:10:41 <quintopia> im comparing to fibonacci without zeckendorf
18:10:51 <b_jonas> I don't know
18:12:30 <b_jonas> Other question. You know the xor-coded list trick, right? Take a cyclic doubly linked list, but have nodes store only one pointer, whose value is the xor of the addresses of the previous and next nodes. List head and other iterators have two pointers to adjacent nodes.
18:12:49 <b_jonas> That can work for trees rather than lists too: there, iterators have to store the parent.
18:12:54 <b_jonas> Like, binary trees.
18:13:57 -!- hppavilion1 has joined.
18:14:19 <quintopia> yeah sure
18:14:25 <b_jonas> So my question is, can xor-coding be used to make a garbage collector that avoids having to store a long stack of pointers when it marks a deep list of nodes? If such a gc is possible, then what properties of the gc is it compatible with? (Stop the world vs incremental, generational moving vs stationary, etc.)
18:14:55 <quintopia> .deep question
18:15:31 <b_jonas> These are both eso in that even if they're possible, they're stupid tricks that won't be worth the debugging in the end when something goes wrong.
18:17:25 <\oren\> You know, it would be nice to have a version of qsort() that rather than taking a comparator function, takes a offset to a sort key
18:20:10 <\oren\> that way you wouldn't have to make a separate function for each struct that needs sorting
18:21:11 <\oren\> it would just be keysort(A,&A[0].key-&A[0],N); or smething
18:21:21 <b_jonas> \oren\: how would it know the type of the comparator key?
18:21:26 <b_jonas> also, use offsetof for that
18:21:54 <\oren\> b_jonas: maybe there would need to be different ones
18:22:19 <\oren\> keysort, keysortl, keysortll, keysortf, keysortd etc
18:22:40 <b_jonas> \oren\: one for each type of key. especially for little-endian architectures if you prefer to have the more significant sort key at the lower offset but the more significant byte within it at the higher offset.
18:22:58 -!- Cale has joined.
18:23:35 <\oren\> either that or some sort of configuration paramater
18:24:28 <b_jonas> hmm, like a 64-byte shuffle key? could work
18:25:56 <b_jonas> shuffle key as in, for each of the 64 bytes of space in the real conceptual little-endian key, the shuffle key has a byte that is either 0..63 to tell which of the 64 bytes starting from the key offset you take, or 255 to mean that byte of the real key is zero.
18:26:13 <b_jonas> (and in that case, the key offset might be fixed to zero)
18:26:34 <b_jonas> though that wouldn't solve sorting by float keys, which is a real need
18:27:05 <\oren\> yeah, I was mostly thinking of the case where there's only one key and it's of a common C type
18:27:22 <b_jonas> float is a common C type, right?
18:27:30 <b_jonas> yeah, you mentioned keysortf
18:28:24 -!- LKoen has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
18:28:37 <\oren\> b_jonas: right. so you would just have keysortf(char *A,size_t off,size_t member_len,size_t array_len);
18:30:52 <\oren\> it basically seems like a waste to have all these calls to somestruct_compare(struct some *a,struct some *b){return a.key - b.key;}
18:31:39 <\oren\> which might be optimized out, but even so, why have the function at all
18:35:41 <oerjan> it's all a mess just because C doesn't have proper closures hth
18:39:45 <\oren\> oerjan: C is low-level and I like it that way

18:46:42 <b_jonas> TAOCP has a special place in my heart, not only because it's a good book, but because I think it was a large part of what got me interested in programming when I was young
18:46:55 <b_jonas> it's hard to tell how much effect it really had, but it certainly mattered
18:47:37 <b_jonas> I wonder what sort of celebrating party we should organize when the final and glorious edition of volume 3 is published.
18:48:21 <b_jonas> (yes, obviously those aren't independent. TAOCP had a big effect on me as a child BECAUSE it's a good book. it was the most interesting book in the entire school library.)

21:16:05 <zzo38> Currently in my program SDLTERM the only support for text is 8x8 PC character set, but I should later also add support for font upload with custom variable-pitch bitmap fonts, with 16-bit characters and ligatures and kerning.

23:53:01 <fizzie> I haven't been out lately.
23:53:23 <fizzie> One of our meeting rooms is called "court", I was tempted to book a meeting there so I could've said to someone SEE YOU IN COURT.
23:53:55 <oerjan> chances that you're the first to do so are ...
23:54:21 <fizzie> All the rooms on the third floor are named after "things that sound strange in the sentence '(we have a meeting) in X'", like court, hell, denial, sane, jail, "my office", "your office" and so on.

23:57:17 <oerjan> . o O ( five minutes, the pub )
23:57:17 <shachaf> Ah, public Google Maps doesn't show individual room names there.
23:57:21 <shachaf> It does for some buildings in MTV.
23:58:10 <fizzie> shachaf: It does for UK-LON-BEL as well.
23:58:24 <fizzie> shachaf: It just opened last year, probably no-one just thought of doing it.
23:59:27 <shachaf> Your meeting room naming scheme sounds much better than any of the buildings I was in.
23:59:52 <fizzie> There's nothing that funny about BEL meeting rooms, though, they're just famous computer scientists (3rd floor) or actual old computers (4th floor).
