12:00 AM
@Geobits I actually think almost all of the people here like football. You're probably just listening to the vocal minority a.k.a me
@ballesta25 # makes sense yeah
 
@quartata I don't like football :P
 
I am indifferent towards watching sports generally ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

A: Implement a Truth-Machine

Cᴏɴᴏʀ O'BʀɪᴇɴSimplex v.0.8, 3 bytes Try it here! i¦o i ~~ take input ¦ ~~ repeat next character until zero byte met o ~~ output character

@El'endiaStarman @VoteToClose
dat weird puppy monkey baby commercial O_O
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Yea, nothing about that made me want to buy a kickstart.
 
it was terrifying O_O
 
12:05 AM
nice incorporation of memes into your commercial, Taco Bell
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ then why are you watching the game lmao
anyways
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I've already upvoted this
 
@quartata It exhibits American culture, think of how many millions of people from all backgrounds are sitting down enjoying the game. It's fascinating for that kind of reason alone
 
@quartata I'm not. It's playing in the background
@quartata I know. It's an old answer.
 
I know a lot of people that watch for reasons not relating to football.
 
I suppose it's worth watching for the weird commercials
 
12:07 AM
more equal-length joy:
 
I'm kind of only glancing at the TV to watch the commercials right now
 
number
string
regexp
 
!
 
12:08 AM
@Cyoce regexp
 
Which raises questions like "If you're paying $5 million for an ad, why make it super weird and strange?"
 
Sticks in people's memory.
 
Why is each scoring event two bytes? That isn't very golfy.
 
@Geobits Agreed
 
You can't risk a bland, uninteresting ad that gets you very little revenue.
@Geobits Because this.
 
12:09 AM
What does everyone think about tags for:

Q: Apply Kirchhoff's law

Sixty-sixKirchhoff's law says that when you sum up all the currents (positive for the currents going to a junction, and negative for current leaving a junction), you will always get as result 0. Look at the following diagram: Using Kirchhoff's law, you can see that i1 + i4 - i2 - i3 = 0, so i1 + i4 = ...

 
Yea, if you're paying $5M, you need it to be memorable if nothing else.
 
@Cyoce record for array :3
 
@El'endiaStarman No, I know. I'm just saying it's bad ;)
 
12:10 AM
It's in genre, but we don't need any physics or electrical engineering knowledge to sum two arrays and take the difference.
 
@Geobits FCK u
 
:D
 
invalid argument: u
 
number
string
regexp
record   (Conor's)
object
 
12:11 AM
@Adnan I think alone maybe.
 
@ThomasKwa That seems right
 
I think one of the genre tags and array-manipulation would be good
 
What are tags for, anyway? Are we supposed to tag questions if they fit the genre, but don't require any knowledge?
 
If people wanted to find a challenge about Kirchoff's Law they'd probably look for electrical engineering tagged challenges
My rule of thumb is: use whatever tags would make it easy for someone to find out if a certain challenge has been done before
 
@quartata Or search for it directly.
 
12:13 AM
@ThomasKwa True but I meant for a more general case. The title could be not an exact match
 
# number literal
	ended by a space
	! for minus sign / exponential notation
	? for decimal point
 
Nothing more obvious than ? for a decimal point?
 
Holy shit Martin hit 80k rep
4
 
@Cyoce So #5!4 = 5000 and #!?32!!-2 = -0.0032?
 
@Geobits special characters terminate a number literal and execute their operation. since ? and ! are conditionals, they can be in a number literal because you are hardcoding the number in. It would be like putting if(true) in a code golf question.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ nope, it uses base 64 or base 60 (haven't decided yet)
 
12:17 AM
Oh. but conceptually?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ yeah approximately
 
@quartata we already congratulated him and its already off the starboard
 
@Calvin'sHobbies Oh I didn't notice
 
Hmm. I have so many things I want to work on that I can't choose what to do
 
12:21 AM
@quartata Roll d100, see what happens
 
I guess I'll make a strawpoll and let random strangers choose for me
 
I have a d20 at work for this reason
That and fights with my coworker when code is compiling
 
@quartata What the heckkkk.
I no longer have a piano, but I want to try. ._.
 
@Lynn It makes the C string reverberate, so you can hear a very faint C note after the G.
 
@quartata You mean the 3rd harmonic, right?
 
12:22 AM
That’s cool. Does it only work with harmonics?
 
@Lynn Yeah.
 
(as opposed to the fifth above?)
 
@ThomasKwa yes sorry
I actually don't have access to a real piano atm :P
 
I wonder if that would work on a guitar
 
If only keyboards emulated pianos as accurately as emulators emulate, like, Game Boys
 
12:24 AM
@quartata I think you mean a fifth below
 
10-0 at the end of the first quarter...
 
Razor with a mustache.
 
@ThomasKwa No I'm pretty sure it's a fifth above
 
I could almost test that, but my guitar is downstairs, and untuned, and it’s past midnight
 
The 3rd harmonic of the F is the 2nd harmonic of the C.
 
12:24 AM
@Doorknob FGTDXP
 
10 TO 0
 
Great now I can't remember
 
A G 1.5 octaves above doesn't have any Cs in its harmonic profile.
 
I guess Broncos are capital letters then
 
I thought they were like horses or something
 
12:25 AM
I should do more music making~
 
@AlexA. Also a type of car I think
 
You'd hear the G ring as the 3rd harmonic of the C, but not a C.
I just tried it on my piano.
 
@Doorknob Which was named after the horse.
 
I still stand by my reasoning, even though the team I'm "rooting" for is now losing:
[5:52:47 PM] Eric: who are y’all rooting for?
[5:52:54 PM] Keyboard Fire: ok so here's my reasoning
[5:52:57 PM] Keyboard Fire: panthers are cats
[5:52:59 PM] Keyboard Fire: broncos are horses
[5:53:04 PM] Keyboard Fire: cats are definitely way cuter than horses
[5:53:07 PM] Keyboard Fire: so, go panthers I guess
 
12:26 AM
> hourse
 
It's a house-shaped horse
 
@ThomasKwa I feel really dumb now
 
Trojan Hourse
 
How important is this football game on a 1–10 scale
 
@Doorknob A horse disguised as a house?
@Lynn -1
 
12:27 AM
@ThomasKwa It's hard to keep up with commentary and other conversations.
 
Qwertial Aphasia? :P
 
Assuming you mean in the grand scheme of things.
If you mean in the context of football yeah it's important I guess
 
Nah, in the football scheme of things
 
OK then yes it's important
 
12:28 AM
 
I mean, in the grand scheme of things it is still maybe a 2. Sports are a big deal
 
Happy 10k @Maltysen!
5
 
I don’t want to sleeeeep, 19B. ;—;
 
Once I get to 10k, I'll be sure that people will notice :P
 
Yaay happy 10k
 
12:31 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I'll beat you to 10k hopefully
Oh right I remember what I wanted to do today
I wanted to get off my ass and type up the 10 million challenges I have planned
 
FGTDXPtd
 
ooooh
 
@quartata 6654 rep on me.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ If I actually cared I could probably gain 2k rep in a week or so
 
FGTDXPtdxp
 
12:32 AM
@quartata Same here.
 
fggttggssdfgsdf
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ rly
 
2k rep in a week
 
with a 200 rep cap each day
 
12:32 AM
> in a week or so
 
oh
 
@Adnan bounties and accepted answers
 
I have a bunch of sandboxed challenges.
 
gimme da bounty
 
Should I use base 60 or base 64? 64 lets you store bigger numbers (obviously), but 60 is a highly composite number, meaning that there are more fractions that can be expressed without repeating decimals, along with other nice properties
 
12:34 AM
60 sounds fresh and interesting
64 is just hexadecimal on crack
2
 
Bud Light: "everyone likes beer." [citation-needed]
 
@Cyoce I thought you already had base-60 literals in Platypar :P
Anyways yeah go for base 60
 
@quartata I'm reworking it :P
 
That sweet 3D reconstruction must've taken incredible engineering.
 
Nice 64 stars
 
12:37 AM
@Lynn XD
 
Should’ve bolded it
149472 Avocados.

Now I just need one person to star that
It’s beautiful ;w;
 
Oh, by the way, has nobody posted this yet
The Super Bowl is actually an elaborate ruse, concocted by a shadowy group in the mid sixties for this purpose.  The 'watch it for the ads' addition was a master stroke.

(relevant)
 
@Doorknob hahahahaha
 
@AlexA. I tried avocados today. Pretty good!!
 
@Lynn Have you never had an avocado before?

Q: The state of the underhanded tag

J AtkinThe title slightly influenced by The state of the popularity contest tag I recently looked at the underhanded tag and noticed that all 3 of the newest questions are closed as "Too Broad". From our new rules for popularity contests it would seem that underhanded may be off topic, because it is ...

 
<insert obligatory one of today's lucky 10,000 joke>
 
I’d had guacamole, which doesn’t really count
 
i ned avocad
 
@Lynn It can sort of count if it's good guacamole that's well made.
I don't want to brag, but I make some pretty legit guacamole.
@Lynn YES. YES. YES.
 
that sounds way too weird
 
12:43 AM
alex intensifies

AVoCAD juIc such delicus

Geez, this is an intense game.
 
somebody needs to do an avocad language
 
Don't tempt me.
 
;)
 
12:48 AM
@Quill AVODAD NO JUIC
i try sinamon role but hand get stick
4
 
Avocode Juic apparently popular
 
> Jelly, <s>17</s> <s>12</s> <s>8</s> 3 bytes
 
Martin Buttner and the Blowfish plz
 
@NewMetaPosts I honestly had no idea there were underhanded non-popcon challenges.
Someone should probably edit that question a bit since:
 
JUICR(ITEM){
   ITEM NO JUIC THROW NOJUICEXCEPTION
   WHILE(NO JUIC){
       HOW JUIC ITEM
   }
}
JUICR "AVOCAD"
 
12:50 AM
> From our new rules for popularity contests it would seem that underhanded may be off topic.
> popularity contests
 
FGTDXPtdxpFG
 
TRY FOR 1 HOUR {
    ...
} BUT NO JUIC {
    ...
}
 
@PhiNotPi haha
 
@Doorknob hahahahahahahaha

 PPCG Super Bowl Commentary

A special kind of nerdy
 
12:53 AM
Is there a new Juice language or something?
 
It's in the works
 
6 mins ago, by Quill
somebody needs to do an avocad language
@Downgoat if you want it to be
 
@Quill oh

Get the latest Flash player to view this content
ಠ_ಠ
 
12:56 AM
Why is someone using Flash in 2016
 
Sounds like you need to get the latest Flash player to view that content.
@Downgoat ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Inertia, insufficient shits given, etc.
 
@Downgoat because someone has a newgrounds fetish
 
Can anyone figure out why this doesn't work: convert downgoat1.jpg -fill white -font Impact -pointsize 22 caption:"Downgoat" png:-
 
@Quill Super Mario Bros Z is an amazing series. So sad the creator probably won't do any more.
 
Antman and Hulk, Coca-Cola? ಠ_ಠ
 
1:00 AM
@Downgoat maybe you need 2 dashes? --fill
 
no
 
We need some new superheroes. Hulk, TMNT overused..

@Cyoce I acept yor noominatin.
 
hahaha
 
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ what's DUP
 
1:04 AM
@Downgoat DUP = Don't Understand Pears
 
Google is telling me DUP = Democratic Unionist Party
 
Don't Underestimate Potatoes
 
Door Under Plane
 
Drink Ukrainian Pizza
 
I thought it was a close reason.

@Quill ...

Can someone spam "Hello", "Hi", and "Hey" in Chatgoats Barn so I can test if Chatgoat handle's rate limiting correctly?
 
@Doorknob my eyes hurt
 
:D
 
@Downgoat Forgot link (updated)
Wait wat happen to ur smallcaps
 
1:07 AM
@AlexA. Verdict on NeoVim: 10/10 better than vim
 
@Doorknob I get the feeling that pizza in Ukraine is a little different than in other countries.
 
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ s/smallcaps/DoNG/
 
@Doorknob :O REALLY?!?!
 
oh wait
 
You changed your small caps to the word "dong"?
Dong goat?
 
1:08 AM
You lost your dong?
 
@AlexA. I have seen the light :P
 
\o/
What have you found about it that you think puts it above Vim?
 
@Downgoat There's nothing dong with smallcaps.
:)
 
Note that it's currently a bug that interactivity with :! is broken
 
Punz
@AlexA. That looks like :| with a mole.
 
1:10 AM

Hilarious Prius commercial.
 
@ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ I had to removed the smallcaps so unicode issues wouldn't make me dong

Also, Bud Light cribs from Independence Day and then commercial for new Independence Day shows up. Coincidence? :P
 
Hello, World! @VoteToClose @El'endiaStarman
 
How ugly is that color scheme?
 
It's decent.
 
1:13 AM
oh shit it's a creeper!
 
tsssss~~~
 
nvm #MCPTSD
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ There's no code.
 
@Downgoat It isn't
 
1:14 AM
@AlexA. :D
 
@El'endiaStarman In that case, I'm about 90% sure that if you click Run it'll be a rickroll.
 
@El'endiaStarman <--
 
I still don't like the green on the bottom left though...
 
@El'endiaStarman Press load.
 
@AlexA. It actually wasn't.
Empty program produces 0. :P
 
1:14 AM
:O
 
0 is the new rickroll
 
@AlexA. Oh please. I only rickroll on Jolf.
 
@Doorknob zero.com.sg
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Nice.
 
@El'endiaStarman Thanks :D
bbl restarting computer
 
1:18 AM
13 TO 7 still (FGTDXPtdxpFG)
 
@Downgoat Those are pretty nice shades of green
 
Half time.
Today I learned: keeping up a running commentary really makes a game go by fast. :P
 
I've been busy messing with my vim configuration. Because that's totally a thing I should be doing instead of watching the Super Bowl. :P
 
@Doorknob yes
When I switched to NeoVim I also switched to VimPlug for all of my plugins and it's awesome.
 
oh really? Exact same for me
[vim, pathogen] -> [neovim, vim-plug]
 
1:23 AM
Oh hey, local commercial.
 
Well whatever I was going to do today has been thrown out the window because CS:GO is calling to me
 
Multiple local commercials. I wonder if that specific time was reserved for local commercials everywhere.
 
Same here
 
@quartata what rank are you?
 
@Quill I haven't gotten enough XP to play comp
 
1:26 AM
wow srs
comp is where it's at
 
I know but I'm too lazy to grind arms race to get the XP
 
@quartata ಠ_ಠ
 
>tfw they'll never understand being put with four players who don't speak your language and kick you for trying
 
@Cyoce If you we're there during Bloodhound (or didn't get the pass), it's still a grind to get to level 3 =P
 
@Roujo I came before the XP system :P
 
1:29 AM
me too
 
@Cyoce Well yeah, but you still had to play to get to L3 even if you were there before, no?
 
there was no level 3, or levels in general (besides comp rank)
 
@Roujo nope
 
I meant once the XP was out
 
@Cyoce I only have 25 hours :P
 
1:30 AM
I was in the beta, I know that there was no requirement to get in comp before
 
no, once levels came out, we didn't have to play to get to 3
 
(plus 12 hours in CS:S)
 
That's odd
My brother had the game from before as well, but he can't play comp now
Although I guess that might be because he wasn't ranked
 
I tried to play CS1.6 the other night, and my cursor was screwed
@Roujo probably that
Valve works in mysterious ways
 
So it goes
I don't play enough to keep my rank anyway =P

None of the above.
 
1:44 AM
they should've had the screaming goat perform. better than those three IMO
 
@Doorknob :D cc @ӍѲꝆΛҐӍΛПҒЦꝆ
@El'endiaStarman If you had to choose.
 
Music: Coldplay
Choreography: Bruno
Consolation: Beyonce
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....hmm.
 
@Geobits Consolation, heh
 
@Geobits I agree completely.
Coldplay is one of my favorite bands.
 
1:46 AM
That's because I'm the Anti-Alex.
 
I bought a copy of Coldplay's latest album a few days after it came out
good stuff
 
Viva la Vida is legit my favorite song
 
Whoever was mixing probably should have raised the volume on all three leads' mics, though. Every one of them was drowned out a bit.
 
Well, all I know of Coldplay and Bruno Mars are the covers of Paradise by the Piano Guys and Alex Boye and Grenade by the Salt Lake Pops Orchestra, Lindsey Stirling, and Alex Boye, respectively.
 
@El'endiaStarman Ah, I see.
 
1:49 AM
And both are really good covers...
 
@Geobits Yeah, disappointing on that aspect. Also, whoever was hiring shouldn't have hired beyonce. Twerking the audience is in no way appealing.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Pffftahaha agreed.
Okay, second half is starting! I'm hopping back over to the other room.
