@El'endiaStarman No. It's a book
 
Can anyone figure mine out?
 
@DLosc no
 
@DJMcMayhem relink?
 
@ConorO'Brien Uhh. That's the plot of half of movies in the 80s. Back to the Future, for instance
 
@Sherlock9 yeah
one minute
 
4:00 AM
Ohh
 
10 mins ago, by DJMcMayhem
"OrphanKillsUncleInFire"
 
@HelkaHomba 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea?
 
CMC: signum in SILOS (TIO link) takes input as CLA
 
@DJMcMayhem A series of unfortunate events? (if that's right you just ruined the ending for me :I )
 
@LeakyNun what is signu?
 
4:02 AM
> amnesiac kills 4ppl for truth
 
@Sherlock9 Nope, but closer ;)
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala the sign of a number, -3 -> -1, -5 -> -1, 0 -> 0, 3 -> 1, 5 -> 1
all strictly negative numbers become -1
zero becomes 0
all strictly positive numbers become 1
 
oh ok, seems easy enough
 
@Sherlock9 Nemo is an enigma but not evil
 
yes it is
 
4:03 AM
@HelkaHomba never seen it
 
@HelkaHomba Also not the ending of ASoUE, though it's a good guess. ^_^
 
ok :)
 
@Sherlock9 I think I was too young to really appreciate that book to its fullest. Was still a good book though.
"StrangeLoops" (It's a book.)
 
"I am a strange loop"?
 
I think I win.
 
4:05 AM
@El'endiaStarman It is a great book. I love the "sequel" The Mysterious Island.
 
It's "Lion King"
 
damnit
spoilers
 
@DJMcMayhem ....oh my gosh.
 
@DJMcMayhem ahh
 
4:06 AM
@DJMcMayhem Ha! I was thinking of Hamlet but that didn't fit "fire." Little did I realize how close I was...
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala try to golf it
 
I have absolutely seen The Lion King, just FYI. :P
 
@DJMcMayhem Also technically Orphan didn't actually kill Uncle...
 
"24601"
 
"LadyGawpsAtPrinceSpeechless"
 
4:07 AM
@HelkaHomba les miz?
 
Course!
 
@LeakyNun golfed slightly silos.tryitonline.net/…
 
I like that one
 
@DLosc And Simba wasn't an orphan.
 
I don't know where "24601" is in Les Miz but I have yet to read/watch it. Should rectify that soon
 
4:08 AM
@RohanJhunjhunwala hint: remove the macro definition
 
@Dennis True! Good point.
 
@LeakyNun I did
 
Still waiting on
11 mins ago, by Helka Homba
"EvilEnigmaCaptShanghaisWriter"
 
@HelkaHomba I have seen that number weirdly often, and it always makes me think it's a perfect power...
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala maybe you didn't click save
 
4:08 AM
@LeakyNun I think it can be heavily golfed by untwisting the spaghetti code
 
@Sherlock9 it's the number of Jean Valjean
when he was in prison
 
2401 is a perfect power
@LeakyNun Ah, I see
 
@Sherlock9 It's the main character's prisoner number
 
@El'endiaStarman me too. I tried taking the sqrt :P
 
oh @LeakyNun better? I didnt save I thinkg silos.tryitonline.net/…
 
4:09 AM
@HelkaHomba idk
 
@HelkaHomba Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson
 
@Sherlock9 No. (Though it sounds like it might work)
Hint: wolf
 
> guillotine doppelganger
 
@ConorO'Brien Nope.
 
4:10 AM
Still waiting on this one:
6 mins ago, by El'endia Starman
"StrangeLoops" (It's a book.)
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala here
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala here
 
@El'endiaStarman Gödel, Escher, Bach?
 
@DLosc Bingo!
 
4:11 AM
@DerpfacePython face
 
@LeakyNun the second one is really clever
 
@ConorO'Brien Python
 
Thanks
 
"RulerOverthrowDragsOn"
 
4:12 AM
@LeakyNun you abuse the fact I don't mind division by zero, I just try catch it and keep going... On Error resume next!
:)
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala Any CMC for SILOS?
 
I'm going to put all of my ideas for MineCode in a separate file.
Probs need unicode stuff for it.
 
@Sherlock9 Brisingr (probably not intended answer, but it fits)
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala what is SILOS written in?
 
@LeakyNun one CMC I had was transpile BF to SILOS
@ConorO'Brien java
 
4:13 AM
@Sherlock9 Game of Thrones? (kinda)
 
ah
well, gnight
 
@DLosc The whole Eragon series, really
 
"All of the slowness of the jvm all of the challenge of assembly"
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala you know, CMC should be easy like the one I just gave you
 
Are there any directional chars (like L)?
 
4:13 AM
@LeakyNun ok
 
@HelkaHomba Ah yes, I was making reference to the dragons of Eragon and not of Essos though :D
 
Ooh, this one should be a toughie: "ExtragalacticSpeciesAlmostWin".
 
@LeakyNun write the "CAT" program
 
I don't really know how to explain it, but I want to emulate redstone.
 
@El'endiaStarman Alien
 
4:14 AM
"Escape;BadBunnyGen.;NewHome"
 
@HelkaHomba Watership Down!
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala How to take multiple line input?
 
@DLosc Yep :D
 
@LeakyNun the loadLine command actually loads multiple lines, but only one CLA
 
@El'endiaStarman Mass Effect?
 
4:15 AM
You may assume that the input will not be greater than 7k characters. (I.e it fits into the unmodified heap)
 
@Sherlock9 Nope.
@Sherlock9 Not that either.
I should mention, it's a book series.
 
"AngstyBoySingledOut,VRevealed"
 
Another one: "YoungBoyKillsAllBugs".
 
> retarded man talks to strangers
 
Ender's Game?
 
4:16 AM
@El'endiaStarman antz?
 
@DJMcMayhem Forrest Gump
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala here
 
@Sherlock9 For the second one, yup.
 
@Sherlock9 ... Yeah that one was pretty obvious
 
@DJMcMayhem Nope.
 
4:17 AM
@LeakyNun that test data though...
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala lol
 
@LeakyNun it's hilarious
 
@El'endiaStarman ant bully?
 
@El'endiaStarman Second one? Which was the first?
 
@DJMcMayhem No, it's Ender's Game, as Sherlock9 guessed.
 
4:17 AM
Oh, it's enders game
 
@LeakyNun SILOS is incredibly slow, I should optimise it
 
> mail order wife -> prairie
 
@Sherlock9 Extragalactic species.
 
Haha, duh
 
Oh okay
 
4:18 AM
That movie was such a dissapointment
Which is a shame since the book was so good
> colorblind boy remembers things
 
@DJMcMayhem Giver.
 
Dammit
 
@DJMcMayhem Rule 1 for watching a movie if you've read the book: Don't.
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala Here:

It's a fundamentally different experience as a start
 
4:20 AM
@Dennis yeah, I know. That's why I still haven't seen the giver
 
@DJMcMayhem Ender's Game and The Giver are fairly closely associated in my mind (probably since I read them around the same time), so that was especially easy for me. :P
 
@DJMcMayhem I was JUST NOW starting to think of a clue for The Giver, and when I read yours I thought, "Huh, I can't place that but it sounds really familiar..." [facepalm]
 
"PirateSavesBride"
 
@Sherlock9 Princess Bride.
 
Too easy :D
 
4:21 AM
@LeakyNun upgoated :)
 
> Nordic god possesses dog owner.
 
@Sherlock9 Wayyy too easy. :P
 
I thought it was pirates of the Caribbean
 
Me too.
 
"AngstyBoySingledOut,VRevealed" hint: magic
 
4:22 AM
@HelkaHomba Merlin?
 
The v is intentional?
 
yes
 
Oh wait. It's Twilight.
 
no..
 
4:23 AM
But it fits!
 
A game: "ChildMakesFriends". Should be obvious
 
> Short guys fight over jewelery
 
@El'endiaStarman hint: "urwiz" specifically
 
@HelkaHomba Harry Potter again?
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala I feel like writing assembly programs where functions are really labels at the top of the document
 
4:23 AM
@HelkaHomba Oh, Harry Potter again? That did come to mind...
 
@El'endiaStarman Which one though?
 
@HelkaHomba Order of the Phoenix.
 
Yes! (finally, bleh :P)
 
Okay, final call for "ExtragalacticSpeciesAlmostWin". It's a book series, set within a much larger collection of books.
 
4:25 AM
"EvilEnigmaCaptShanghaisWriter" Final hint - vowels removed: Th_ S__ W_lf
 
@HelkaHomba The Sea Wolf
 
yay
 
I know the title but can't remember anything about the book :P
"GirlGrannyWolfActor&Bunny" Hint: goody bandit
 
3 mins ago, by DJMcMayhem
> Short guys fight over jewelery
This should be really obvious
 
@DJMcMayhem The Hobbit?
 
4:27 AM
@DLosc Specifically, Smeagol vs Deagol.
 
@DLosc eh. I meant LOTR but it works for both
 
"FrmrFirfghtrsTryInhritnceScam"
 
Yeah, was about to type "or Return of the King"
 
@El'endiaStarman This one is Star Wars: The New Jedi Order.
 
4:30 AM
@HelkaHomba hahaha. There's also this: villains.wikia.com/wiki/Baby_Face_Finster
 
@El'endiaStarman Ohh
 
> American hero does lots of drugs
 
Nobody has any idea about "FrmrFirfghtrsTryInhritnceScam"?
 
@Sherlock9 ... No, sorry.
 
I'm actually not counting bytes lol
 
4:32 AM
@Sherlock9 Faramir firefighters try inheritance scam?
 
@DJMcMayhem 32 bytes, disqualified :P
 
Well, I meant Former
 
@HelkaHomba s/Faramir/Former
Bah, ninja'd. :P
 
@DLosc dang it
 
@HelkaHomba Well, Faramir was almost set on fire...
 
4:33 AM
> AmericanHeroDoesLotsOfDrugs
 
I'd like to see a LOTR spin off where Faramir becomes a firefighter. "Stewarding Gondor is just too hard Eowyn!"
 
Oh, this should be a good one: "BlackSonBeforeDemocratFriend".
 
@El'endiaStarman The Butler?
 
O_o I have no idea
 
@DLosc Nope.
 
4:35 AM
(Random guess, never seen it)
 
To be fair, it's not really a summary. It's just a really memorable quote.
 
@El'endiaStarman House of Cards?
 
@Dennis Not that either.
 
"guillotine doppelganger" Hint: famous superlatives
 
16 mins ago, by Dennis
> Nordic god possesses dog owner.
 
4:38 AM
American Gods?
 
"UrbaneDocMovesMAtoWA,Job=Talk" (TV show)
 
@Sherlock9 Nope.
 
15 mins ago, by Sherlock9
A game: "ChildMakesFriends". Should be obvious
 
@Sherlock9 Er... what kind of game? :^/ Board game? Playground game?
 
Video game
 
4:40 AM
CMC: TAC in SILOS (TIO link) (cc @RohanJhunjhunwala)
 
Last call?
7 mins ago, by DJMcMayhem
> AmericanHeroDoesLotsOfDrugs
 
@DJMcMayhem Wild guess: American Sniper?
 
Could be a biopic about Elvis or Jimi Hendrix or the book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
 
@DJMcMayhem House? 24?
 
4:43 AM
Alright let me rephrase "ChildMakesFriends" with "ChildWandersUnderground"
 
Alice
 
Nope. Video game.
 
@Sherlock9 wild guess BioShock?
@Dennis nope
 
Extremely far away ahaha
In tone, at least
 
Last call for this one:
10 mins ago, by El'endia Starman
Oh, this should be a good one: "BlackSonBeforeDemocratFriend".
 
4:45 AM
American McGee's Alice is a third-person psychological horror action video game released for PC on December 6, 2000. The game, developed by Rogue Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, is an unofficial sequel to Lewis Carroll's Alice novels. It was designed by American McGee and features music composed by Chris Vrenna. The game uses the id Tech 3 engine first used in Quake III Arena. A PlayStation 2 port was in development but was canceled. A sequel, Alice: Madness Returns, was released June 14, 2011. Downloadable ports of the game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were also made to coincide...
 
Alright another hint: It was released 2015
 
@Sherlock9 I was gonna guess fear but I doubt it
@Sherlock9 among the sleep

> GirlGrannyWolfActor&Bunny
 
Alright, all of you are way off in the wrong direction
@DLosc Didn't someone say Roger Rabbit
Not horror
 
@El'endiaStarman The Blind Side
 
4:47 AM
@Dennis Yes!
 
Ooh good one
 
@Sherlock9 Someone did. Not it.
 
Is there a unicode char that represents a redstone torch well?
 
@Sherlock9 Is it some Zelda game?
 
Nope
 
4:48 AM
Undertale!
 
And while we're here: "FrmrFirfghtrsTryInhritnceScam"
@DJMcMayhem BINGO!
 
Haha, I should have gotten that sooner
 
Good lord, that took way longer than I expected hahaha
 
"GirlGrannyWolfActor&Bunny" = Hoodwinked!
 
Ohhh
 
4:49 AM
Well, I've never played or really seen much of Undertale... :P
 
Kind of a horror game. Sorta
@El'endiaStarman you should it's fantastic
 
Book series: "FrmrFirfghtrsTryInhritnceScam". And they were former volunteer firefighters
 
Yeah, I don't think I've read any books like that.
 
"mail order wife -> prairie" Hint: Maine ->
 
It's not Little House on the Prairie, is it? That's the only work I know of with "Prairie" in the name. :P
 
4:51 AM
So that one's probably a Stephen King book
Since it's in Maine
 
@El'endiaStarman No, good guess though
 
@El'endiaStarman Hint: the series has been mentioned as an earlier guess (to a different summary, of course)
 
@Sherlock9 The hint is meant to imply Maine -> prairie; thus, not in Maine.
 
Mine was "walk the line"
 
@Sherlock9 It's not A Series of Unfortunate Events, is it?
 
4:53 AM
15 mins ago, by Dennis
16 mins ago, by Dennis
> Nordic god possesses dog owner.
Hint: super powers
 
@DLosc It is!
 
@Dennis I keep thinking it's one of the Marvel movies, but I don't remember any possessions.
 
@Sherlock9 Ha! I would never have gotten there from the original clue. But "volunteer" was helpful.
 
@El'endiaStarman Way off.
 
Haha I jumped from the schism in the Volunteer Fire Department to "Former Firefighters"
 
4:55 AM
Now the Copy snippet thing in TIO is so convenient that I can post a solution so fast that the script thinks that I'm a bot
 
@Sherlock9 Hmm... yes, "schism" would've been helpful too.

@LeakyNun hopefully I'll send you a TAC tomorrow
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala alright, gn
 
So nobody in this room is interested in SILOS.
 
@LeakyNun Command & Conquer?
 
@Dennis it wasn't a riddle
11 hours ago, by Martin Ender
@LeakyNun are you complaining that there's too much on-topic discussion going on in here?
Looks like I'm not the only one
 
5:04 AM
Last hint: je t'adore
 
@Dennis what is the riddle?
 
"HalfModoCathedral"
 
> Nordic god possesses dog owner
 
@Sherlock9 Hunchback of Notre Dame
 
Yep
 
5:06 AM
On that note: "guillotine doppelganger" = A Tale of Two Cities
 
Oh. I haven't read that yet
 
Mine is The Mask.
 
"GirlFindsNewFamilyRunsAway"
@Dennis Oh yeah, that was supposed Loki in the mask. Not in the original comic, just the movie

Alternatively, "GirlFindsNewFamilyDefeatsThem"
 
5:14 AM
@Sherlock9 Coraline?
 
Yep
 
"mail order wife -> prairie" = Sarah, Plain and Tall
 
Oh
Never heard of that
 
Shame!
It's one of the best children's books in existence.

Mini-challenge: Summarize the plot of a favorite movie/book in 29 bytes or less.
 
And we've had 2 hours of riddles since then
 
Wow it's been going on for two hours?
 
Well, it's starting to drop off now
 
Typical Helka, posting a CMC attracting so many answers that it fills chat for two hours.
3
 
Also popular today was Google's Deep Dream Generator.
 
5:19 AM
Is it still 90% trained on dogs?
 
You can now give it an image you want it to go off of, which can give some pretty neat and/or disturbing results.
 
Why are most of the Google Image results of Trump
@DLosc What was the pattern (?) image for that?
 
I like how you can see all the people's heads in Turkey...
 
Oh. That's the world map
 
Also, one of my favorite series: "2000YearTimeLoop"
 
5:23 AM
@DLosc And not political commentary :P
 
@Sherlock9 Wait, it was that hard to tell?
 
Nah, just took me a minute
 
Same map, different pattern image:
 
Pattern looks like some kind of comic?
It's really hard to tell what the pattern image is if it's not a photo :(
 
The way the speech bubbles make the desert and the rain makes the Mediterranean is pretty cool, IMO.
Well, g'night
 
5:32 AM
TIL there's a Deep Dream animation tool
 
6:05 AM
quiet
 
6:28 AM
Well, my highest rated answer of all time across the entire SE network is now a meta post. That's kinda sad
 
My highest rated answer is 0 bytes, that's probably sadder
 
Haha
Hey, at least you got a badge for it. I've never gotten over 55 question or answer
 
6:42 AM
Is it possible to make a primality tester using only logic gates?
 
@DerpfacePython everything is based on logic gates
 
@LeakyNun sigh...
That's not what I meant
:(
 
What did you mean?
 
When given a binary number and logic gates (i.e. AND, OR, NOT, XOR, etc) is it possible to make a primality tester?
 
@DerpfacePython Yes because everything is based on logic gates
I don't see the difference.
 
6:48 AM
How do you do it then
 
@DerpfacePython Which algorithm do you plan to use?
 
As simple as possible
I'm just trying to make one in MC, that's why I'm asking.
 
Wilson's theorem?
Warn you, it's possible but it's hard
I thought redstone is basically turing complete
 
@LeakyNun I've never heard of wilsons theorem before. It looks pretty cool
 
@DJMcMayhem indeed it is
 
6:56 AM
On a side note, Wilson's sequence looks like a fun challenge
 
@DJMcMayhem do you want to post it?
 
Maybe. Prolly not right now. I'm at about to fall asleep as I type...
 
Alright
