12:01 AM
what? you like the madness of unnamed arguments??
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Anyways " is this: jsoftware.com/help/dictionary/d600n.htm
To make it a verb just assign it to one
 
@AquaTart oh thanks
do you know any J?
 
Yes.
 
Could you help me?
 
verbName =: blah
Sorry, I got that the wrong way around.
 
12:05 AM
It's confusing >_>
33 mins ago, by Cᴏɴᴏʀ O'Bʀɪᴇɴ
Better question: say I have an expression a f (g (b h a)). How do I convert that to a verb?
 
Like I said, assign it.
 
But I want to take a and b as right and left arguments.
*left and right
 
Do you understand how trains work?
 
I definitely recommend reading the docs before attempting anything
 
12:07 AM
I'm attempting as I go.
 
You really shouldn't if you're learning J/APL for the first time.
 
I'm on that chapter but haven't read it fully, maybe I should do that first <_<
 
Read then attempt
It's very disorienting at first.
 
@Dennis Is your prime counting entry the Meissel-Lehmer method or a variant?
oops, just saw you added to your answer
 
12:10 AM
weren't we gonna get to pick our community ads, like last week? Is grace note just really busy?
 
Did we have any good ads?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ no the opposite
we get to pick which ads we'll see
 
I didn't know that was a thing.
 
I might be wrong
 
No, I hardly pay attention to that aspect of the site often.
 
12:16 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I usually have no clue what I'm talking about in general, but that's kind of the impression I got from what grace note said;P
 
@Maltysen hi-five me too! (except the latter)
 
@mods wanna clear this up for us?
I think I'm right:

Q: Community Promotion Ads - 2015

Grace NoteThe dawn of a new year, 2015, now approaches, or has already approached, either way it means that it is now time to reset our Community Promotion Ads! What are Community Promotion Ads? Community Promotion Ads are community-vetted advertisements that will show up on the main site, in the right s...

 
You are not wrong, although I don't know that a specific time was picked out for it. We were talking about it some last week, though.
 
Monring
 
@HelkaHomba I'm fine with whatever. Downloaded 1.9 in preparation.
 
12:22 AM
I'm not sure if that's supposed to be morning or monking o_O
 
J is so bloody confusing .___. anyone have any good example programs I can do?
 
in the Congrats You're graduating thing, grace note said:
> You will soon be able to select your own community ads. Give me a moment to set these up later this week.
that was last week
 
@AlexA. We're doing it in 40 min :D
 
Nice
 
12:22 AM
@Maltysen Ah, ok. I knew "soon" was in there, but didn't remember the other.

Q: Chaotic Number Shuffling

Fricative MelonYou have a deck of cards, consisting of cards with non-negative numbers on them, and you haven't shuffled it yet, and no player trusts the other players to be fair at shuffling. You devise a way to shuffle the deck that is completely deterministic, but chaotic enough that the other players are ok...

 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ That reply adds more confusion than concrete answer.

It's also a giant robot in the shape of a toe.

I feel so unpluralized :(
Ah, that's better.
 
yous privileged peoples with your pluralities
 
12:27 AM
@Doorknob brb claiming super-duper-broccoli
 
@Maltysen or anyone else: Do you know how they did the pre-made answer template on that question? That could be useful in several areas...

@Bigtoe ^
 
>_< I mean how do they get it to show up there by default.
 
12:29 AM
Because it's a mod/cm thing
Those are generally done by Grace Note
 
I figured as much. Meh. I wonder if our mods know about / can do it.
 
It's probably a cm only thing
 
Centimeter
 
^ That's what minibits said
Except with a question mark at the end.
 
Is that the new "that's what she said"?
 
12:31 AM
Hi Minitoes!
 
potaTOES
 
@AquaTart He laughs every time he sees your anagrammed name, you know.
 
@Bigtoes Probably not as much as he'd laugh at my regular name.
 
@Bigtoes does he like follow along with TNB conversations?
 
12:32 AM
Sometimes, if he's sitting over here by me like he is now.
 
was he there for the one where CH wanted to eat him?
 
@Maltysen yeah, he does @Bigtoes challenges for him too
 
He got the Yellow remake today and is sitting here playing.
 
12:33 AM
What? There's a Pokemon Yellow remake?
 
@Quill I wish. Rep with no work?
 
;-; I haven't got it yet
 
@AquaTart Uh, well re-release is more like it.
 
@Bigtoes Oh.
 
But yea, 3DS virtual console.
 
12:34 AM
@AquaTart not a remake. ^ it's on the 3DS eShop btw
 
Oh lame
 
how much is it?
 
I was hoping for a full remake.
 
It's hard not to be ninjad on mobile
 
12:34 AM
$9.99
 
@Quill Use a computer
 
I have Pokemon Yellow (somewhere) so no point
 
Supposedly you'll be able to connect to the Bank to transfer forward later in the year.
 
@AlexA. what's that?
 
@Bigtoes I got the 3DS just for smash, but that's cheap
 
12:35 AM
@aquatart​ @quartata I read, re-read, and triple re-read chapter 9 and I'm still confused af as how to do my problem ;_;
 
What's your function?
 
a f (g (b n a))
I need t =: ... so that a t b = a f (g (b n a))
 
@Quill It's like a phone but you can actually use it to do things
 
@AlexA. so like an iPad?
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
12:36 AM
ಠ^ಠ
 
@AquaTart conjunction junction what's your function? youtube.com/watch?v=ODGA7ssL-6g
 
I did it.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ That's easy. It's just a dyadic fork.
 
Took me way too long.
 
I feel like a fanboy every time I write the apple device names correctly without auto correct
 
12:37 AM
@Bigtoes Has Minibits ever watched you ruin someone's hopes and dreams by downvoting them?
3
 
Of course he has. How else will he learn?
 
@mınxomaτ that looks pretty uniform and like grass
3
 
@mınxomaτ I actually suspected that it's biased towards the more popular ones.
 
@Bigtoes Well, they say everyone experiments in college. Personally I stayed clear of downvoting in college.
 
If a is your right argument and b is your left:
 
12:38 AM
@AquaTart but... I thought forks were monadic?
 
@Quill Do you have an iPhone?
 
@AlexA. He's getting a head start. No point in waiting until college.
 
I would say +1 but that feels ironic
 
(] f g)
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Nope.
 
@AlexA. Irony is always welcome, as is sarcasm.
 
12:39 AM
> downvoting - not even once
 
They can be both.
Re-read chapter 9
 
@AlexA. yeah, but it's an australian iPhone, so Siri calls you mate
 
> An isolated sequence of three verbs is called a fork. The general scheme is that if f is a monad, g is a dyad and h is a monad then for any argument y,
>
> (f g h) y means (f y) g (h y)
 
@Quill I really hope you aren't kidding.
 
Right, that's a monadic fork.
 
12:39 AM
@Quill does she really?
 
There's also dyadic forks.
 
oh
lemme rerereread that then
 
oh wait
Ohh, you need b n a too
 
I saw a job listing that mentioned J. I realized that if they use J, their entire codebase is probably unreadable. So I just let that one go.
6
 
@AquaTart yeah that's what's tripping me up
 
12:41 AM
@AlexA. it was a typo - they meant to say Julia, you missed out big
 
You need a 5-train then, little more complicated.
 
since x (f g) y = x f (g y), then a f (g (b n a)) = a f g (b n a)
 
@AquaTart ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
 
@Maltysen If they make typos in their job listings then they probably aren't too serious about hiring anyway. :P
 
@AlexA. s/J/PHP/
 
12:43 AM
@AquaTart huh boy. d e f g h means d e (f g h)
 
@AlexA. super duper broccoli is actually not a bad name, if you could find some way to make it make sense :P
 
@Quill I interviewed for a job once that mentioned familiarity with PHP as a plus. Before the interview I started the Codecademy PHP track. I didn't get very far because that language is garbage.
 
did you get the job?
 
Nope
Turns out employers want this thing called "experience"
 
@MartinBüttner I did. Meta decided not to. /cc @EasterlyIrk
 
12:44 AM
at least PHP is somewhat golfable
 
I didn't have it with Hadoop
 
@Doorknob 2D platformer.
 
Any company that wants you to be acquainted with a hose is garbage.
 
@Doorknob Aw.
I want a blog.
@AlexA. Hadoop?
 
@Doorknob Broccoli Simulator 2017

oh @AlexA., btw. I actually asked my parents about university of washington "because its good for computer science" got shot down immediately D:

Apache Hadoop is an open-source software framework written in Java for distributed storage and distributed processing of very large data sets on computer clusters built from commodity hardware. All the modules in Hadoop are designed with a fundamental assumption that hardware failures are common and should be automatically handled by the framework. The core of Apache Hadoop consists of a storage part, known as Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), and a processing part called MapReduce. Hadoop splits files into large blocks and distributes them across nodes in a cluster. To process data, Hadoop...

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ
 
@Maltysen :(
 
@AlexA. seattle is a bad school place then.
 
12:45 AM
At least I think.
You'll have to test it.
 
@EasterlyIrk What?
@Maltysen Did you mention the adult male stranger on the Internet who told you about it?
9
 
@AquaTart Uhh what is this? I know that ] retains left argument and [ retains right argument, but I don't know what they do together.
 
@AlexA. I think that will go even worse....
 
@AlexA. I was getting the vibe that that wasn't really gonna help my case
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ It's a 5-train.
 
12:48 AM
I mentioned an adult male stranger who was good at golfing to my parents and almost got banned from SE.
4
 
@Maltysen What about "a little bird told me"?
 
If there's one thing I've learned, it's that parents love strangers on the internet.
Apparently with the exception of Riker's and Maltysen's...
 
@EasterlyIrk This is why I do this without my parents knowing >_>
 
@AlexA. As a parent, I'd have to say so far, so good.
 
12:48 AM
^^
 
Basically it takes the fork [ g n] with the left argument being f [ and the right argument being the right argument
 
Wait really?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ^
 
woah
 
Why would they care whether you like code golf?
 
12:49 AM
^
 
Oh no, I mixed that up.
 
My parents don't give two shits about what I do on SE
 
I think it is more 'INTERNET IS EVIL' though.
 
^
 
They care if I'm communicating with "people I don't know who could abuse and kill me."
 
12:49 AM
My head hurts now.
This is why I don't do anything involving trains larger than 3 verbs
 
@AlexA. My parents are just amused by the coffee mug.
 
@AquaTart I've had a perpetual headache since this morning.
 
You know what just ask Dennis
n-trains suck
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Oh, fair. After all, you're a minor.
 
12:50 AM
damint am I the only one who gets discord notifications???
 
@AlexA. Minor as in drinking minor, or as in I can't sustain myself?
 
Both.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I was playing clash of clans once on my cousin's Ipad. are those REAL PEOPLE on the INTERNET?
 
@EasterlyIrk I need a "Soon!" option.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Wait, so people you do know and could abuse and kill you are ok? Statistically I think that's more likely >_>
 
12:50 AM
I'll just check "Yes."
 
@Maltysen oh no XD
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ You're legally a minor since you're under the age of 18.
 
@AlexA. Oh, okay.
 
He's a semitone shy of being a major.
 
@Bigtoes That's true, but ma parents think I'm stupid enough to listen to a random joe's request to meet up >_>
 
12:51 AM
@EasterlyIrk What about people who have boyfriends? They're excluded in this survey.
 
@EasterlyIrk Also, add "semi-friendzoned"
 
What about "Yes, but I have a boy/girlfriend" ?
 
rekt
 
My love life is too complicated too early <_<
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ also, forever alone
 
12:52 AM
@Bigtoes I am an idiot like that. >.<
 
That GIF always fascinates me. I mean look at the right end of the stick. It just tunnels through the wood.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ It's a mite early for you to HAVE a love life. :P
 
@El'endiaStarman That's what I though ;_;
 
@mınxomaτ ...well, that's confusing. GIF exploder time!
 
12:53 AM
Explanation: The dog is magic.
3
 
@aquatart simpler question: I need a range from A...B as verb. That's what I was trying to do.
 
I'll bet the right side of the stick broke when the dog tilted its head and it hit the ground.
 
I'll take that bet. It looks too long even after going through.
 
Nope, it's still very much visable.
 
I'm talking about to the right of that.
 
12:57 AM
Also, it'd have to be a pretty poor stick to break with that little pressure and no jerking movement of the rest of it.
 
Could've rotted. It had probably been laying on the ground for a long time.
 
It's possible I guess, but the rest of the stick looks pretty good. Dunno.
 
#DogGate2016
 
Minibits says that "the pole looks as if it's a visible ghost."
 
1:00 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ you are a no.
@Bigtoes hm, theory?
 
@EasterlyIrk wat?
 
Tell minibits good job.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ You are not married.
 
@EasterlyIrk Oh, that's what I put.
 
1:00 AM
Good.
 
@EasterlyIrk Still no "yes I'm married but also have a g|b friend".
 
what is a GIBF?
 
Gargoyle In Bed Friend
 
oh that's a | not a I
 
>_>
You have a girl, or you have a boy friend.
 
1:02 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ it's all the font's fault
<_<
 
There's a frame where you can see part of the stick beyond the fence after it would've hit the ground. That part is no longer visible afterwards.
 
the strawpoll one
 
So maybe it was weakened and then broke off when it hit the post.
 
1:03 AM
@El'endiaStarman I'm going with the ghost-pole theory :)
 
I think it's a green screen or something of the like.
 
is no one here married?
 
@Bigtoes STAHP ABUSING ME
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ No I'm not.
 
oh did he not vote?
 
1:05 AM
>_> nothing happened

My ISP just cut my downlink in half.
 
My ISP just cut my leg off
 
How does that even happen.
 
@mınxomaτ they had bad security which caused his bank account to be hacked and he ran out of money, then the loan sharks came to his house and cut off his leg.
 
@Maltysen I wasn't replying to Alex.
 
oh lelz

I vote for TownGoad
 
I vote for STOP CHANGING YOUR NAMES

I should of added "Do Not Wag" as an option
 
1:52 AM
@Doorknob hm, pretty sure that's not a valid anagram
 
@Sp3000 Not GownToad?
 
That's the next step :P Swap 2 at a time
 
@WagonDot Might as well embrace the dong, considering you were DoNG to a lot of people for a while. :P
 
@NewMainPosts This feels suspiciously like actual work... :P
 
1:56 AM
@AlexA. Well that has 75% of the votes so I guess I'm A Dong Wot :|
 
@Doorknob I would vote for that too if "dong" weren't an option.
 
Did it change?
I'm A Dong Wot now...
 
expats? Wow, you went deep for that change.
 
@ADongWot ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Just what we've always wanted
@Bigtoes ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
 
Oh. Italic Lenny. Let me change into something more comfortable...
