@JourneymanGeek... exactly how important is support small/local business to you?
 
For me, small/local business typically gets somewhat preferential treatment, e.g. I may buy from a small shop even if the price is higher than what a big store charges for an equivalent product, but I do have limits.
If the price is, say, 10% higher, I will likely select the small business.
But if the difference is closer to 30%, the lower price wins.
@JourneymanGeek care to explain why it matters this much to you, to the point where no local availability means no sale, even for big-ticket electronics?
 
I didn't say that
But that a company is local is one of the things I consider.
 
2:16 AM
Good morning. People suck.
Chocolate, on the other hand, if the only thing worth living for
And coffee isn't bad either
Derivatives of cocoa and coffee beans > people

@bwDraco awoo
 
@Ave Ya got me. What's Fim MLP
 
Ave
@FreezePhoenix it's MLP: FIM actually

3:43 AM
Thats not a programming language you forfeit.
:p JK
 
Ave
fite me
 
meow
 
@Ave Don't wanna kill you... I just met you...
@allquixotic scree?
 
Ave
I'm stronger than I look :3
 
I'm a cat
 
Ave
3:45 AM
though lack of testosterone (and presence of estradiol) on my system doesn't help with building or maintaining muscles
 
I'm a bipolar Phoenix
Capable of destroying a type 3 civ in weeks.
 
Ave
speaking of things to destroy
vamt is probably not happy about the fact that I'm trying to add 750 keys to it
 
I'm also blind.
 
Ave
Oh? The image reads "Verifying key 552 of 750", inside VAMT, Volume Activation Management Tool.
I'm sorry about that BTW. I'll try to be more careful and post less images when you're around.
 
Sounds like your... Cool computer is not having fun.
@Ave Nah I just will have to be able to visualize. (Hope you get Im jokin, right)
facepalm base autocorrect
 
Ave
3:51 AM
So wait, you're joking?
ah.
 
I probably shouldn't joke about that should i.
 
Ave
I don't assume stuff when it comes to disabilities. If someone says that they're disabled in a certain way, I accept that and adjust my workflow to make stuff I do more accessible to them.
 
Well, that's nice of you.
Now I just feel bad that I took advantage of that. 😨
Can we change the topic?
 
Ave
Sure.
So far it's pretty good. IDK if it's good enough to use it as my daily OS, but considering I use arch atm, I've got nothing to lose.
 
Ha...
 
Ave
4:04 AM
(okay, to be fair, parabola is based on arch)
(and if I wanted linux-libre I could just install it through pacman)
 
I win those 10k for disproving this to e cube. According to his principle, there would actually infinite days per day. Hence, his evidence is self destructive.
@Ave what can you install with th Pinkie?
 
Ave
with pacman?
 
JK... pinkie is the pink ghost :p
have you ever played pacman?
 
aww, those cute &s
 
Ave
4:12 AM
@FreezePhoenix yes
 
Squished, but yes.
 
hard pacman game: &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&‌​&&&&
 
@RogUE A terminal versio n? Wow.
 
@FreezePhoenix pacman4console it is.
there's this one in the terminal as well:
 
snake!
@JennaSloan hi.
 
4:17 AM
@FreezePhoenix it is worm, but more like snake. Pre-installed it seems.
 
Worm = snake
 
4:35 AM
lots of flags in other rooms
 
You get notified of those?
 
yeah I'm a 10k user
 
That can't be fun...
 
more annoying than anything else, but gives me a sense of who's abusing flags / being abusive, because once in a while bad apples from other rooms come here
 
@FreezePhoenix I think you meant '==' :P
 
4:42 AM
@rahuldottech not if they're writing in VBScript
If a = b Then
 
@allquixotic VBScript is... Weird.
 
also Ruby has === and you can even define ================================================================================‌​======================================== if you want
 
Handy. But weird.
@allquixotic (゚⊿゚)
 
"does it really, really, really, really equal the other thing?"
 
== is correct.
 
4:45 AM
@rahuldottech I think '==' checks for equality, it doesn't say 'a and b are same'. At least in C++.
 
@RogUE it... Checks if they are equal
 
yeah you all by yourself
 
Equal == Same
(?)
 
balalala
 
@rahuldottech no, not necessarily
two objects (or structs, or ints, or whatever) can contain the same data, but may be separate copies of the data in distinct regions of memory
 
4:49 AM
1 == "1"
/ / true
 
@FreezePhoenix 0
 
in Java, == is for only if the references equal, meaning you have two variables that point to the same region of memory, they aren't distinct copies
 
@FreezePhoenix That can't be true.
 
i thought it means is
 
@RogUE type conversion says it is.
 
4:50 AM
Object.equals method is for whether the data matches, regardless of whether it's the same region of memory
 
@FreezePhoenix wrong
 
so it's not a check?
 
1 is int the "1" is char.
 
it's a command
 
everything is a language if you try hard enough
 
4:51 AM
what about or is
 
Whoa what coding language are we talking in? I'm using js
 
@FreezePhoenix depends upon the programming language
 
&& or |
that means and and, or
 
&& is just and
 
but hard and
 
4:53 AM
@FreezePhoenix I was talking about C++.
 
&& in java yes means and, for real
 
@FreezePhoenix so js uses type conversion while checking for inequalities?
 
it means execute this code, and then this code
 
Maybe.
 
4:56 AM
@GettingNifty doesn't it mean execute this code, and if the result is a monster etc value, do this code?
 
lol
no a monster value should never exist
you should write the monster value so that it throws an exception
if youre cpu can't handle it I would just give up
 
@allquixotic Wat
 
Every four years the difficulty of cryptocurrency increases.
 
@GettingNifty Your recent conversation is not making any sense. If you don't have anything sensible to say then please go elsewhere.
Thanks guys.
 
5:18 AM
Thanks for keeping things running smoothly.
 
(removed)
 
@FreezePhoenix That would be true under JavaScript, but not in most programming languages.
Which is why using === instead of == is recommended in most situations. The former checks type; the later does not and allows type conversions to achieve a true result.
 
you can delete it in 40 seconds
 
coughs
let's move on everyone
 
man, it's like everyone's walking on tenterhooks after the blog post @_@
chat's no longer fun... I'll come back later
 
5:23 AM
Have a nice time with your cat.
 
@allquixotic So... on unexpected results from type comparisons...
What other commonly-used languages do this?
 
Nodejs
 
Type Script
 
> $a == $b
Equal
TRUE if $a is equal to $b after type juggling.
 
5:26 AM
Force Script
 
> var_dump(0 == "a"); // 0 == 0 -> true
WTF.
No wonder people consider PHP a terrible language.
 
What?
No, I agree with that.
 
JS returns false for this comparison.
 
No no no you got it wrong.
Wait you got it right.
In PHP, a char is equivalent to its index in the alplabet.
 
< [>>+>+<<<-] >>>[<<<+>>>-]<<
[>>+>+<<<-] >>>[<<<+>>>-]<
<[[-]>[[-]>+<]<] >[-] >[<<+>>-]<<
[
-<-<->
< [>>+>+<<<-] >>>[<<<+>>>-]<<
[>>+>+<<<-] >>>[<<<+>>>-]<
<[[-]>[[-]>+<]<] >[-] >[<<+>>-]<<
]
< <[>>[-]+<<[-]] >[>[-]+<[-]] >[<<+>>-]<<
[[-]>+<]+ >[<->-]<
 
5:33 AM
Brainf**k
 
@FreezePhoenix Well spotted. Equality in said language
 
I can't read it though :p
 
I can't read or write it :)
 
I can't write it either.
 
6:00 AM
Computer, NO! I do not want an 88GB copy of Iron Man 2...
 
Lol.
Yesterday my computer said that a file was 878668675.5 bits.
 
Bob
6:15 AM
Schrödinger's bit
 
Hahaha...
Bye.
 
 
4 hours later…
Bob
10:00 AM
welp.
dropped my phone down a (spiral) staircase... 3m total, at least one 1+m drop
somehow the glass came out unscathed
but there's now a few stuck pixels on the OLED ... bleh
