Disapproving bird
 
@AlexA. Using this (free for non-profit use)
 
"highcharts" sound like a statistics site for weed.
 
@PhiNotPi You should profit from it. Abuse the license.
 
Here's the demo that I based mine off of.
 
12:02 AM
You can do chat strikes with three dashes on either side.
 
okaay
 
Why doesn't it work on the main site @AlexA. ?
--- ---
Whoa. What just happened?
 
@Justin Your guess is as good as mine.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Were you able to successfully test this?
I'm still super proud of that answer :D
 
I need to think of 5 more good string printers... ugh
Hmm
 
12:08 AM
@AlexA. Yes, with a lot of poring over the docs at 0300 XD
 
@quartata With a 3D printer you could make your own string.
5
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ What is 0300?
Did I provide insufficient instructions for running and/or testing the code?
 
@AlexA. Army time - equivalent to 3 oclock
@AlexA. No, I was just tired and my mind needed a 'cane'
 
Haha
Are you in the army? Why 0300?
 
Ah! I thought of one.
 
12:10 AM
It's okay to reuse a language if the program is in a different size range right?
 
@quartata Were you thinking of a number between 1 and 10 and thought of one?
2
 
@AlexA. No, I thought of another string printer.
 
A printer that prints yarn?
 
12:11 AM
A TI-BASIC one that's so strange that maybe just maybe @ThomasKwa won't crack it in thirty seconds
 
I've read that one of the terms of using some 3D printers is you can't print more 3D printers.
 
Mwahahaha
 
Nevermind I just realized why it doesn't work
 
@quartata Why?
 
12:16 AM
Or at least why there is a really easy way to crack it
I might still use the base concept so I don't want to give it away.
Hmm hmm hmm
Just sorting through my esolang directory to see if anything jumps out at me
Sadly Stuck has removed its scipy module...
 
Otherwise I'd do something with determinants
 
Maybe
But you'd probably crack anything I made
 
I won't answer. crosses heart
 
12:23 AM
Did you also hope to die and then proceed to stick your finger in your eye?
 
That's coming soon though, I bet.
 
I wish I understood Pyth
 
I've written some stuff in it but it's never optimal.
 
12:26 AM
It's not stack based...
Very confusing to me
 
Stacks are confusing to me.
That's why I can't seem to wrap my head around CJam.
 
Write it out on paper
Like draw the stack
Then it is easy
 
Wait people do that?
 
I love stacks
 
I do.....
 
12:27 AM
No
 
They don't just keep a mental stack?
 
Maybe I'm just a freak
 
@quartata I do that too
Doing it now for the cops challenge with ><>
 
@Justin I keep a mental stack but if I get confused I start over and write it out on paper
 
I just avoid stacks, which means I never have to do that. ^
 
12:28 AM
Is something wrong with me? I don't get confused....
 
No
 
@Justin If anything that means something's right with you.
 
You're just more visual spatial most likely
 
But I can handle stacks that are around 8 deep in my mind...
While going through the operations and stuff.
 
^ You are amazing
 
12:33 AM
^_^ @CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Thank you.
 
@Justin | My pleasure :D
 
Conor's pleasure
We should really change the acronym in our identicon; PCG stands for the Pentecostal Church of God.
 
How about PCoG?
For Programming (puzzles and) Code Golf?
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
What's wrong with PPCG?
Maybe P2CG?
 
12:38 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Wouldn't that be the "Post-Pentecostal Church of God"?
 
...
Listen.
PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPCG
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ That's the acronym we use but it's not what's in our identicon.
 
@AlexA. Ahhhh

12:50 AM
O.o . I don't think I've ever had +6 on a first-answer within an hour of posting before.
 
You spent a lot of time on that, didn't you? :3 @AlexA.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Look at the timestamps. Says it took 8 minutes.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ?
 
@Justin What took 8 minutes? :/
 
12:51 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ On what?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ that was my response
 
^
 
@AlexA. The acronym
DAMN
I visually identified your avatars as the same >_<
so sorry
 
Hahaha
 
@quartata If you ever find a good one, I'll spend a day on cracking it
 
12:54 AM
@ThomasKwa TI-BASIC, <=4 bytes, output: 1.3332386.
Just for fun ;)
 
@Justin I am amazed at your mental ability
hmm
I think that number looks familiar; I'm not sure from where
is it ln pi?
no, that's too small
 
Nope, nice try
 
does it have a two-byte token?
 
erm lemme check
 
I tried the cbrt(e) but it doesn't work.
 
1:00 AM
@ThomasKwa No, it doesn't.
 
I tried ISC, it's giving me 1+F(13/25;2/5;1)
I have no idea what F(13/25;2/5;1) is
wait, is it cbrt 2?
no, it isn't
 
Oh, it sounded familiar to me because there's another number I know close to 4/3
 
That's 2^(5/12)=1.33483985
 
1:04 AM
You're on the right track with ^
 
what would be more challenging? checking the time based on the computers local time, or UTC time?
I'm thinking its UTC, but I'm not sure
 
Computers
imho
 
I have officially done it!
 
@GamrCorps Double it and you'll be super metal. \m/
 
1:08 AM
thx
@AlexA. lol
next goal
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I give up
 
Cool! It's e^(sin^-1(cos(5
 
I could have coded up a brute forcer, I guess
 
1:14 AM
By the way, my 8-byte TI-BASIC cop has 10^11 entropy
It's possible to make one with over 10^12, if my calculations are correct
 
o___________o
I already spent an hour using all the commands in CATALOG that have a binary arity.
No cigar.
And now you tell me it has 10^11 entropy. :P
 
@AlexA. What's super metal about 26 badges? ;)
 
@Geobits It's the... uhh... number of the beast's uncle.
 
I thought maybe 666.26 had some kind of significance :P
It's an awful strange looking decimal point, though.
 
It's when the beast visits his uncle.
 
1:17 AM
It does. When floored, it is
|
|
|__666.26__
 
Does anyone know where 666 actually came from besides me?
 
I do. It's in the Bible.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Now that I think about it, it has less, because there are only ten digits
 
Revelation 13:18
 
@ThomasKwa Oh. :P
@GamrCorps Oh, not the exact verse reference :P
 
1:19 AM
So a brute forcer would probably find a different solution first
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ lol
 
Two thirds is an evil fraction, so 666 being the mark of the beast thing always made sense to me :)
 
Why is 2/3 evil?
 
I salute you @GamrCorps for knowing your slightly obscure verse numbers
 
1:20 AM
@ThomasKwa thank you
 
@AlexA. Have you ever tried to cut two thirds of something? It sucks.
 
Eh, could be worse.
 
please tell me you have not already cracked my latest ti basic answer @ThomasKwa
 
Yeah, like into 1/pi ths
 
Plus, taking two thirds of something could be considered gluttony, when you should be sharing more equally. I hear gluttony is one of those bad things.
 
1:22 AM
Did you know the Egyptians had a special fraction for 2/3?
 
did this chat just turn into numberphile?
 
Was it represented by a drawing of someone holding a jar on their head?
 
Egyptians were weird in a lot of ways :)
One of my highest scoring SO answers is related to Egyptian fractions.
 
@GamrCorps I love numberphile :D
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ me too
 
1:24 AM
Please... I will be so sad if you have cracked it already
 
Quarto is desparado.
 
Give me peace of mind
 
@quartata I have.
 
Noooooo
 
1:25 AM
quartata falls dramatically down
 
How? Was it the fresh ti 84 that gave it away?
 
It was so fresh you could smell it just out of the oven.
 
To prove it, the SHA-256 of it, expressed as hex digits, starts with 0fa1
 
So fresh it would want to make a woman slap you
 
?
 
1:26 AM
I swore this was going to fool you
 
Thomas is no fool.
 
@quartata I'll tell you in a day, unless you want to reveal now
I'm a fool sometimes, but generally not in matters of the TI-84
 
Go ahead
*sigh*

A: Tips for golfing in TI-BASIC

Thomas KwaSkip unnecessary variable initialization Current consensus is to allow all code to be run on a fresh interpreter. We can take advantage of this—all uninitialized real variables start at 0 in TI-BASIC, and Xmin starts as the possibly useful value -10. So if you ever need to take a running total i...

:D
 
Little known fact: TI-84 stands for Thomas Is 84.
 
1:28 AM
I thought Xmin was so damn clever
 
^

1:29 AM
 
 
 
void p(){while(true){System.out.println("^");}}
 
 
1:32 AM
v p{wh(tr){Sy.o.`7('^
 
@quartata ?
 
That's his golfed Java
Downshaft or something
 
He took every other character ish
 
Same code in Downdraft
which is gonna be great if i finish it emphasis on the word if
 
Interesting: det(Nidentity(M = N^M

A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

StatusIs Marty McFly here yet? Inspired by this post Back to the Future day is almost upon us. That is, the day that Marty McFly travels thirty years into the future thirty years ago is almost here. So your job is to make some code that informs the user when that is. For this, your code when run sh...

 
I propose that all uses of ^ to refer to the previous post be replaced with ☝
 
^
wait
 
@quartata It's fooling me that's for sure
 
My Ti answer?
 
1:39 AM
Good night y'all
 
'night
 
Y'all
 
@SvenTheSurfer There are at least four solutions.
 
I'm still unsure what constitutes as a byte
 
1:39 AM
$;"Night!
 
@SvenTheSurfer Regular ASCII characters are 1 byte each. That's a start.
Some characters consist of multiple bytes, like fancy Unicode stuff.
 
No, lowercase letters and most symbols are two bytes in TI-BASIC
 
Wait four? There should be only one
 
@ThomasKwa This is why you shouldn't use TI-BASIC. :P
 
1:41 AM
And LinReg(ax+b) is one byte
 
You can count bytes by going to memory management
 
@ThomasKwa wat i call shenanigoats on that
 
or you can just use TI-CONNECT to code and count bytes from there
 
oh yeah this is the table I was looking for
 
1:42 AM
@ThomasKwa No, that's ÿ.
 
So wait what are the other solutions
 
@ThomasKwa thanks for this, will come in handy
 
Ymin ZXmin ZYmin
I think those all work
@GamrCorps np
 
Oh ok. So still the same idea.
sigh I was so hopeful
Now i have to make anotjer one to replace it...
 
@AlexA. TI's encoding is nonstandard, as you can see
 
1:45 AM
ಠ_ಠ
Well, so is APL's, so whatevs.
 
@quartata I was planning on answering to claim rep from the awesome act of posting the solution before you'd composed the challenge
but if you want to change it it's cool
 
Mm? What challenge is this?
 
hm? the Xmin
didn't you say you would edit the post to replace it?
 
Oh
No.
 
I figured it out lol
 
1:53 AM
Okay, I'll post about it now since chat already knows.
 
Go ahead and crack it. I meant i need o make a new printer so I have 3 open
 
I now realize that's what you were talking about, but that wasn't as clever as I was promised. I just saw -10 from window
 
I am trying to win the cops challenge

:P
 
if a ti-basic code is longer than 2 bytes it's literally over for me
 
I have four 8s and a 4 out
 
1:55 AM
Does anyone know of a way to count ti-basic bytes?
 
Carefully
 
I know I spent quite a while doing nothing on the 4 byte one, but I will push on!
 
I have a 32 and a 8. But I have a lot more in the pipeline
 
@GamrCorps Either count them manually (these are one, and all others are two)
 
Or use the mem menu
 
1:56 AM
or type into your calculator, go to the [2nd][MEM] screen, count the bytes there, and subtract 9 plus the length of the program's name.
 
@ThomasKwa Ok thx, I was wondering why the length was really high
