Hello. I noticed the tag "Security" and I was curious to whether or not I was allowed to ask a question.
 
3:50 AM
@MichaelBlake No, we don't let people ask questions. That would be insecure.
Also, we only talk in l33t crypto speak so that people can't understand us.
more secure that way.
 
@tylerl l33t crypto being rot13 of course.
 
Aw man. I can't understand rot13.
To secure for me i guess
 
4:29 AM
Am I the only one that finds this ridiculous?
 
@TerryChia no
re-defining core library functions is not appropriate behavior. Someone needs s time-out.
 
Good. Pretty insane behaviour.
@tylerl Ah, but see, mathn is part of the ruby stdlib.
 
i mean redifing the core integer division function
 
5:06 AM
that certainly could make some bugs.
I think anyway
depending on how comparison and stuff work
 
@FalconMomot Oh, I forgot to mention that that behavior is global.
 
@TerryChia as in not module-local?!
that is madness
 
@FalconMomot Yeah, apparently.
 
how is that usable?
 
That's the idea I got from here at least.
Ruby: where requiring a module that ships with the stdlib changes how integer division works everywhere. http://t.co/pa2rgfNytH
 
5:12 AM
@tomdale probably introduced with the commit message "Replicate Smalltalk's design mistakes."
yarp.
updated KDE, certain programs reporting libraries missing.. About to reboot. Wish me luck.
Arch, where every reboot is an adventure!

If you don't regularly think everything you do is shithouse, you're not doing infosec right.

@RŠ¾ryMcCune that is nice - think I'm about out of Auchentoshan...what did you think of it

ooo
@tylerl isn't this what's happened with Python3
 
11:31 AM
@davidhoude - very amusing, but I had to close the question :-)

@RoryAlsop Sorry for being off topic and contributing to the nonsense you try to keep out of this place, it was just too hard to resist :)
 
@deed02392 Wut? No.

@TerryChia re how floats are handled, I'm sure there's a similar difference
 
@deed02392 You might be thinking of from __future__ import division which makes 10 / 2 return 5.0 in Python 2. The difference is that this change is local to the module you import it in and is meant to allow writing python code that is compatible with both python2 and python3.
 
@RoryAlsop I had a Glenmorangie a few days ago. Yowza that was yummy.
 
4:19 PM
@TerryChia yeah that's the one
but in p3 it changes to just working like that
 
@deed02392 Because python 3 is largely accepted to have many breaking changes with python 2? How is that comparable with an import messing with language builtins globally...?

@DavidHoude gotta be careful tho, if you're gonna enjoy SE too much they're gonna make you a mod :)
