@DestructibleWatermelon !oy
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ @Doorknob What kind of effects should I give someone who's dehydrated?
I was thinking confusion at minimum
 
@quartata hallu for very dehydrated
 
Ooh, good one.
 
@quartata You can also add vomiting and diarrhea. Real-world symptoms.
 
Vomiting already exists :P
 
11:03 PM
Yeah, I could do vomiting like from oversatiated
Ooh, reminds me I need to mess with the worldgen for water
I get the feeling I'm going to be completely rewriting the worldgen by the time I'm done
 
Unrelatedly, I've been thinking recently on how best to explain to a non-programmer what it's like to work on a complex program. Specifically, I'm trying to think of a metaphor or common experience that everyone would understand. Something that comes close is a heavy flywheel, since it takes a significant amount of time and effort to get going, but once it's going, it's easy to keep going. Doesn't really fit with how an interruption can totally wreck your flow state.
There are basically four main qualities I can think of: 1) hard to start, 2) easy to keep going, 3) easy to stop, and 4) reluctance to get started if you don't know if you'll be interrupted.
 
Getting started is like sorting a pile of a bunch of different types of rice grain-by-grain. expanding on it is then bisecting a smaller pile into it
 
@quartata Elaborate on your latter sentence?
 
Adding to the piles essentially
 
Hmm. I would think that once you get the first pile done, then the next piles would be fairly easy. Plus, there's no real thinking involved, so it's something that you can put down and pick up easily.
 
11:20 PM
guess who
 
Legionmammal?
 
no
I probably should have got a better resolution image
 
Multiple users?

11:25 PM
when the higher res one is done, it might be better
@Adnan nope
please note I used identicons as the guide, but I'm referring to the image the guide was applied to
 
Releasing Helium Nuclei?
 
nope
the high res one is 2% done
 
I got a level 7 image
Took me more than an hour haha
Can you guess who this is?:
 
No
 
11:29 PM
quartata?
 
Nope
 
@Adnan Seems quite like Alex A.
 
Yeah haha
It's Alex
 
Woo! The shape was fairly distinctive.
 
11:29 PM
I thought that was too obvious...
 
It just grew a second head
 
the higher res version is a LOT more obvious than the smaller one
it will take like 1 second to guess
 
Oohh hahahaha
 
yes, that's right
it's martin ender
definitely
 
plot twist
 
11:37 PM
Day 4: The strange avatar cont... why do I even bother :D
 
Why Java programmers can't see well? Because of the eclipse.
 
@ReleasingHeliumNuclei no, it's why do java programmers wear glasses? Because they can't see sharp.
 
New jokes m8
 
@DJMcMayhem Are you going to play Nethack?
 
Yes.
 
11:52 PM
I've been trying to play some DCSS today
 
@quartata Right now?
 
Sure
What's your terminal size?
 
it's resizable
 
I mean, what is it right now
 
I have no clue
why does it matter?
OK, I'm logged in. 3.6.0 or 3.4.3?
 
11:57 PM
@DJMcMayhem 3.6
@DJMcMayhem Because in order to watch you I need to set my terminal size to yours
 
o_O
Oh. Do you know how to figure that out?
 
Otherwise the lines wrap and it looks wrong
 
on git bash that is
 
It'll show me in the spectate menu
But I was just wondering
 
Do you wanna take it to the other room?
 
11:58 PM
Sure
