Do you have Visual Studio?
 
I have Xamarin, an equivalent.
 
@FlagAsSpam If you can run mainform.cs, that should probably do it
From the .sln file
 
Uhhh... Not sure how to target like that.
(I don't use this language halp)
 
Compile and run the SLN file with MSBUILD or XBUILD (the latter is if you use Mono as the compiler)
 
1:17 PM
Welp...woke up to 0.5-1 inch of snow and some ice on the ground and on my car. Definitely wasn't expecting that. But my time in Rochester proved quite useful. :D

(Last winter was the first winter that I had my car with me, and we got a LOT of snow over the course of the winter. Several feet.)
 
@mınxomaτ Tried, but it didn't like it.
 
@FlagAsSpam If you know what CS file has the entry point, try mcs file.cs and see if it throws the same error (or just download VS to save trouble)
I doubt though that Mono supports forms if they are used in the project in any compley way.
 
@mınxomaτ You can use VS Community Edition 2015 to save money also!
 
1:20 PM
@mınxomaτ How would I find out which cs file has the entry point?
 
@zyabin101 Yes.
@FlagAsSpam It has the Main(...) method.
 
I can words good, what are you talking about?
 
(usually)
 
>grep -lR "Main" .
./AboutBox.cs
./AboutBox.Designer.cs
./EsotericIDE.csproj
./EsotericIDEProgram.cs
./Labyrinth/Environment.cs
./Mainform.cs
./Mainform.Designer.cs
./Resources/esoteric-ide.pov
I tried running these, none worked.
The only error I'm getting (so far) is "out of memory".
Well, no, sorry, for the .sln, I'm getting that.
I'm throwing 49 or so errors on the rest.
 
@FlagAsSpam EsotericIDE.csproj or EsotericIDEProgram.cs is what you need.
 
1:30 PM

lol
 
@FlagAsSpam Mono doesn't do Forms (so well), cause Forms are not part of the ECMA standard. Use VS.
 
sigh #cantbuyanything
 
VSC is free.
 
Is it?
 
1:39 PM
Yes
When I say VSC I mean Visual Studio Community, not Visual Studio Code.
 
Link? :P
 
You can't be bothered, can you...
 
sigh Fiiiine. xD
 
Thank you. xD Sorry.
 
1:41 PM
holy shit 12 flags

yeah, this room:

Chat room for Travel.SE travel.stackexchange.com
 
@mınxomaτ I have Mac...
 
And how should I have known that?
 
1:45 PM
This is true. Sorry. :P
Is there a Mac alternative? I didn't see one on the page.
 
Visual Studio Code
and some config workarounds
 
@Quill That's not a compiler.
 
Will this work on Windows 10?
I have a Virtual Machine with that on it.
 
He has to use MSBUILD or Mono to compile, and Mono doesn't support Forms in the extent needed. So he has no option.
@FlagAsSpam Do you have parallels?
 
@mınxomaτ No, VirtualBox.
(I'm extremely cheap)
 
1:47 PM
@FlagAsSpam Good enough.
 
> Goof enough.
That made me cry a little.
So, that'll work, then?
 
Of course, why wouldn't it?
Install Windows -> Install VSCommunity -> Live happily ever after
 
I think they were trying to promote their chatroom.. an SE wide promotion..
 
@mınxomaτ no, but there's compiler workarounds like I said... VSCode just has a better C# resolver
 
(YAH peeps)
 
1:59 PM
Look what I found.
 
where did you find that
the page source didn't show it for me
 
The Chat page.
Do a text lookup for Cthulu functions. :D
 
why would someone do that?
cthulu
 
this is weird

Q: What on EARTH is this eggs.js thing?

FlagAsSpamSo, whilst perusing the src for the chat.Travel.SE page to see if the background of the bottom chat bar showed where you were in the world (which would be cool, feature-request), I found a handy little JS file called eggs.js. It had some pretty interesting stuff in it, such as Eggs.Asteroids and...

@Optimizer Wat.

Q: What Easter Eggs do the chat sites have?

MosheAccording to balpha, the SE chat sites may have individual Easter eggs, depending on the site. If you find them, please post. Edit: Because it's so easy to make this stuff up, a screenshot as proof would be nice. (Although Photoshop ain't that hard either...)

Oh, hey, can anybody help me with a little Philosophy homework? I have to interview someone, anyone, on their opinions on a few philosophy things. Shouldn't take too long.
 
 
@FlagAsSpam you talking philosophy like Plato, Kant?
like asking me what I consider to be moral?
 
No, asking what you consider to be the meaning of life and related things.
"THE HARD QUESTIONS" was literally the title of this unit. Caps included.
 
2:37 PM
So... anyone for some philosophy?
 
As long it is no spam.
 
It is no spam.

@flawr I mean, it's not a valid developer's tag on meta.
 
@flawr Yes :P
 
2:56 PM
Is there a way to make linked tags?
 
@flawr He isn't banned! He's here! PogChamp
 
I know he's back, but I think he has been banned for a while, ircc.
 
Nope: Still here... :P

@NathanMerrill 3, beat you. :P
 
People seem to agree.
 
Yeah, well the message with the most stars ever in chat has 69, so I just might keep going...
 
2:58 PM
@RikerW What is that message?
Also, I since then have taken the post of thanking bots.
 
@Doorknob's "OKAY SERIOUSLY PLS STOP ABUSING STARS"

@quartata It's a generator for readable hashes of text! Great experiment quartata.
 
> adderstone
I wonder what that is
Huh
An adder stone is a type of stone, usually glassy, with a naturally occurring hole through it. Such stones have been discovered by archaeologists in both Britain and Egypt. Commonly, they are found in Northern Germany at the coasts of the North and Baltic Seas. In Britain they are also called hag stones, witch stones, serpent's eggs, snake's eggs, or Glain Neidr in Wales, milpreve in Cornwall, adderstanes in the south of Scotland and Gloine nan Druidh ("Druids' glass" in Scottish Gaelic) in the north. In Egypt they are called aggry or aggri. Adder stones were believed to have magical powers such...
It gets weirder
 
3:26 PM
@quartata is this some fancy compression method?
 
@quintopia No, it probably generates readable hashes for text.
 
@zyabin101 why would that be included?
 
I don't know. @quartata!
 
11 hours ago, by Dennis
My new method uses an English dictionary. It encodes 2-5 letter words, with an optional leading space in 2.12 - 2.32 bytes, and longer words in 2.56 - 2.76 bytes.
 
@Dennis this is good compression
 
3:28 PM
Quite golfy and, apparently, rather entertaining.
Jelly now has the shortest, non-cheating Hello World. For comparison, Japt w/shoco gets to 11 bytes.

A: "Hello, World!"

DennisJelly, 8 bytes “3ḅaė;œ» Try it online!

 
@Dennis so it encodes punctuation too?
 
@Dennis Wouldn't using "«" as the beginning delimiter for compressed strings be better? That way you can leave off the ending guillemet
 
@Dennis How do you print the alphabet in Jelly?
 
@Dennis Is it a Huffman code drawn from some large lexicon, or just indexes the dictionary in order?
 
@Dennis Now your language is called yipee]z aahs! Kappa
 
3:32 PM
Man these downvotes on my meta answer are confusing. They're basically saying "yes a challenge that said 'recreate the mona lisa most upvotes wins gogogo'" is OK...
 
@quartata maybe people think that's okay
 
.
I think it's more of a "once it has one downvote it needs to be downvoted" thing.
Meta downvotes are not the same as main downvotes though.
@Dennis Pretty good stuff.
 
3:51 PM
@quartata is your avatar evolving over time? Looks like I missed a few steps...
 
@trichoplax I don't think it looks as good anymore.
 
@RikerW There are no rules against going back to a previous avatar (I did...)
 
@Dennis s/non-/less-/ Would you consider it cheating for an interpreter to include a command H which outputs "Hello" and W which outputs "World" and writes "Hello, World!" as H, W! to be cheating?
 
@zyabin101 Regarding your comment on that markup language challenge:
@nicael this is intentional, without it the challenge would be way obvious. — zyabin101 Jan 2 at 9:37
I don't think it is as obvious as you think it is.. I could be wrong but as far as I can tell this is a context-sensitive grammar
Regex would be helpful but it wouldn't solve the problem immediately I wouldn't think
 
@quintopia Yes, you can encode arbitrary strings of printable ASCII.
10 hours ago, by Dennis
@Sp3000 Words are ordered alphabetically and split into dictionaries of short (5 letters or less) and long words. For example, doorknob is at index 56926 in long, so we can encode it as 6 × 56926 + 1, convert to bijective base 250 and look up the corresponding chars of Jelly's code page. For Doorknob, we need to change case, so it's 18 × 56926 + 2.
@Adnan There's no sane way right now. As a rule of thumb, if you think about any feature involving strings, Jelly doesn't have it yet.
 
@Dennis Why not a single dictionary sorted in shortlex order? wouldn't that result in smaller numbers?
 
@trichoplax No, the pattern on @quartata's avatar is not a child of the glider. A child of it is as follows.
 
@quintopia My point is that Jelly doesn't use any hello-world built-ins. “RsẈḄ,#ʠU» prints Greetings, Planet! in only two more bytes.
@quintopia I tried, and it seems to be longer in general.
 
#.#
.##

4:22 PM
@zyabin101 I know :) I was joking, imagining it being a small window on a much larger pattern...
 
@Dennis it's a very limited definition of cheating ;)
 
It's only cheating if it outgolfs Jelly.

Jelly becomes yipee]z aahs. It's like it's saying "when you first discover Jelly, you will think 'Yipee!', but when you first try to program in it, you will think 'Ahh!'" :P
