Q: Quantum boolean

okieBackground Have you ever dream of quantum state? If that's true for you, you are probably weird... Anyway, I came up with an idea: what if we make a quantum in code? Task Create a data type, function, or class, anything that can be put in a condition. What should it do: (def your thing here, I'll...

Q: Even sum subarrays

dingledooperGiven an array of integers, count the number of contiguous subarrays with an even sum. You may assume that the array is non-empty, and contains only non-negative integers. This is code-golf, so the shortest code in bytes wins. Test Cases Input -> Output [7] -> 0 [8] -> 1 [3, 5] -> 1 [6, 2] -> 3 [...

 
3:02 AM
TIO partially loaded
 
3:13 AM
@emanresuA how tf did you unload a loaded website?
 
My wifi is a sussy baka
And my computer
 
Because the screenshot on the bottom right indicates it was fully loaded when you took the first screenshot
 
I reloaded multiple times to rty and get the screenshot to show y'all
 
@NewPosts this looks interesting but very hard
 
3:31 AM
i think it was still being actively critiqued in the sandbox the last time i looked like 3 hours ago
 
is this not trivial in python
anyway might need some more clarifying? i'll hold off on answering but i won't hammer
 
@hyper-neutrino wait how?
 
__bool__
wait
ignore me i did not read this correctly
ok i take back it being trivial
is this even possible lmao
 
3:46 AM
@hyper-neutrino Not a hammer now :P
 
WW (GG?) ran into the exact same misunderstanding as me :p
 
> trivial
> is this even possible
Perhaps one could use meta programming trickery tho
@hyper-neutrino It’d be nice to have aliases so that your original name and new name both point to you and ping you
 
@user shhhhhhhhhhh my eyes or brain or both don't work properly ok
 
I believe codidwct uses a number for pings
 
@use can't you just use short usernames?
 
3:55 AM
???
That doesn’t help
 
Dang someone edited while I was drafting an edit >:|
 
@user isn't it like you can use just 3 chars to ping?
 
Like @WheatWizard no longer pings 🌾 👻
 
a userscript could help i suppose
if only there were someone here who was good at making userscripts
if only there were someone here who's made TNB userscripts in the past
 
If it were based on id number, then it’d be both unambiguous qnd independent of current name
RREEEEEEEEDDDDDWWWWWWOOOIILLLLLFFFFF!!!!!
 
3:58 AM
There's no I in REDWOLF
 
I'd hope not
 
There is now okay
 
Dang, and I got denied a review because the editing took too long
Edit and reopen should send the reopen vote and give you the review, then take you to the edit page
I don't even know if my edit saved
 
it did
@RedwolfPrograms sorry, that would be my bad
 
Nah I'm just being greedy for VTRO reviews lol
 
4:03 AM
REDWOILF, I CALL UPON THEE TO MAKE US A USERSCRIPT! WHAT SAY YOU?!
 
Not sure how well this would work
See, there's two possible approaches: the person making the ping has the userscript, and it gets auto-replaced with the correct name (so it'd show up as "@​RedwolfPrograms", when you type "@​Redwoilf"), or the person being pinged has it (and it will ping you when it detects any of your aliases)
The second is probably better
But it would limit the usefulness
Since if, e.g., WW didn't have the script, we couldn't use any aliases
 
Yeah
Sadge, time to get codidwct to make q chat thing
 
@RedwolfPrograms Thanks for the review :P
 
4:24 AM
I love how people on Reddit try to use hashtags but it’s markdown so it just gets big :p
 
does it bug anyone else when the symbol itself is called a hashtag?
 
no
 
what else are you supposed to call it?
(genuinely)
 
4:32 AM
octothorpe
 
bro
 
@LeakyNun a hash? or pound if you're american
 
i haven't heard that (octothorpe) since the epic of gilgamesh
@JoKing those either
especially "pound", since to me it's the currency
nobody says those
 
> The symbol # is known variously in English-speaking regions as the number sign, hash, or pound sign.
> Since 2007, widespread usage of the symbol to introduce metadata tags on social media platforms has led to such tags being known as "hashtags", and from that, the symbol itself is sometimes called a hashtag
 
is it bad that I read #include <iostream> as "hashtag include iostream"?
 
4:34 AM
but then I guess they don't read the sign too
 
I do the same, except without the "tag".
 
the only time I've heard the sign read out is when they write "#-field" to mean "number field", and there they say "number field"
or "a^#" pronounced "a-sharp", but that's a different sign i guess
 
or when someone describes a "hash tag" lol
 
but in that case they say "hashtag"
or rather, I haven't heard anyone use the sign other than in hashtags
I guess an analogous question is, when is the last time you heard someone say "full-stop" or "comma" or "exclamation mark"?
 
... I do that a lot when talking to myself
 
4:38 AM
^
 
thankfully not when i'm typing my password though
 
I kinda just mentally say Ah! when I read exclamation marks and pause a bit when I see commas
 
I yell factorials if that counts
at least internally
 
I say "not"
 
@JoKing Hmm, so your password has commas or periods or exclamation marks in it
What do y’all read semicolons and colons as?
 
4:42 AM
i just say "END OF STATEMENT" for semicolons
 
@user I don't
 
Wired
 
I am back with the sight of +14 rep on a closed question
the worst part is that it means i can no longer get 1111rep :(
 
Try for 11111 then
 
hmmmm
 
4:44 AM
Bounty something
 
@JoKing always
fucking hate it
 
bounty give 10*x rep away
but my first digit is not 1,but 5

@UnrelatedString hashtag i hate hashtag
 
4:49 AM
btw quantum boolean(which was the closed question) view count is 42
I have the power of quantum and 42 muhahahahaha
 
???
 
42 is a somewhat funny number
not as funny as 69 or 420
but still culturally relevant
it's the answer to life, the universe and everything
CMQ: Are there any questions that ask for the smallest number of string manipulations (any definition) to make a string palindromic
(no I'm totally not using copilot to generate challenge ideas for me because I'm not at all desperate to get more internet points)
 
5:07 AM
That would be a cool challenge
Not gonna do your dupe checking homework for you though :p
Oh hey, if you take the 1s out of my rep it's a funny number
 
5:57 AM
Ugh my new laptop replaced the right ctrl with a fingerprint scanner
I'm so used to using right ctrl...
 
6:19 AM
Nerd
Who tf uses right control
 
honestly i can see that depending on the exact keyboard layout
like for my external keyboard right ctrl is way the fuck too far from ; to ever even consider using since it's in the very bottom right but my laptop's keyboard has it right under / because of compacted arrow keys so in that case it could actually be easier in some sense to use for most shortcuts involving it since those tend to involve left-side keys
 
@lyxal If I'm doing something like ctrl+t, it feels weird to hit the left ctrl and t with the same hand, but it's often easier to use the right ctrl instead of moving both hands all the way to the left to reach ctrl and t
 
6:41 AM
right ctrl i can understand, but i get confused by keyboards with a right fn button
 
Anyone else really like words that start with "tach-"?
Tachyon, tachometer, etc.
 
i love tachnology
 
I love tachos, tacos with nachos
 
7:30 AM
my cat is currently sleeping on my Echo dot. What should I say to Alexa?
 
"Alexa play never gonna give you up by Rick astley"
 
that's on me, i set the bar too low
 
I'm sorry have a bad habit of rickrolling cats when asked what to do with cats

See?
I just can't help it
 
the last one is exedraj tho, not you (:P)
 
@RedwolfPrograms in principle yes, but only in the long term, and I don't know what those features would look like
 
7:59 AM
ok the next message of mine, i am gonna type with my eyes closed on android (bad idea)
thiabia q hqd iswa cu dont think anyone can reqd this
its hard to know where each letter is lol
 
On an android phone, definitely. On a latpop or similar, easy :P (That's what I'm doing rightnow, hopefully no typos)
> latpop
Also
 
@PyGamer0 sounds like you just need to get good
Like me
These messages are all on Android
Admittedly I had autocorrect but eh

This is closed as unclear with no requests to clarify anything specific.
 
To me, less "unclear" and more impossible
 
You can do it in Curry.
 
It's asking to break the internal behaviour of your language
 
y=unsafePerformIO$getRandomSeed
x=(y>0)?(y<1)
The hard part is performing something randomly, executing both parts of an if is just normal curry behavior.
But that's besides the point, a question really shouldn't be closed as unclear without any comments as to why it's unclear.

@NewPosts wtf
lol
 
Yet no VTCs
 
Because it's spam
 
@emanresuA We finally learned.
 
10:06 AM
Oh, should I have... I wasn't sure what to VTC as and... it's not what I personally define as spam
 
@emanresuA Why not? The first thing in the post was a link to a commercial site related to the described product.
 
I looked right past that :P
 
Yeah it's somewhat disguised as scientific fact but the username and the link clearly are connected to something commercial
And the smoke detector did the job right
 
@Bubbler actually it didn't
It didn't come up in CHQ nor the mod office
And autoflagging is down right now too
Actually turns out I'm fricking blind
Smokey did mention it
It just didn't get autoflagged or have any feedback given.
And I wasn't sorting by site rooms ofc
Nvm me being an idiot
 
@lyxal Thx

@NewPosts oh boy
 
3:32 PM
Morning!
@NewPosts IIRC sandboxing questions on their own on meta is allowed, right? (although that should probably be reserved for much more complicated challenges, or series of challenges like Bubbler's event thing)
 
Well, it doesn't seem like OP intended to do that
because they self-deleted after getting Adam's comment on their first post
and then proceeded to do literally the exact same thing
if they'd responded to Adam's comment saying they intended to sandbox it separately we wouldn't be here now :P
 
@RedwolfPrograms No, questions on meta that should be sandbox answers are off-topic
Or rather, closed as a dupe of the sandbox
 
3:53 PM
CMC: Given two positive integers a and b, determine whether a >= b/2 + 7 and b >= a/2 + 7
 
@LeakyNun IIRC this is the formula for "minimum non-creepy partner age"
 
H+7>¹S¬ but i think that could be better
 
4:06 PM
o.O
my network rep is now 10k
 
Welcome to the chat flag gang
 
@hyper-neutrino did you forget to reverse a and b?
 
@RedwolfPrograms That seems like an unhealthy amount of cinnamon
 
@LeakyNun yes
 
this ? operator is quite useful with recursion, because you can just recurse infinitely and then ignore when the stack overflows
 
4:18 PM
wtf lol
i love how this only works because there isn't TCO
 
That's absolutely genius despite being cursed
 
thank you
 
It'd be cool if you could add something to eliminate the f=lambda: boilerplate in Whython
 
that's too useful
I only want to add genuinely cursed features
 
I guess we need a fork of Whython called Trython then
 
4:22 PM
I was thinking my next thing would be a C-style comma operator
 
That is again useful
It'd also clash with tuple syntax, right?
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing actually, sod's law, I now can't do the 8th either :/
is it ok to do next week (1st) instead? Or does doing it not in the fortnightly schedule break the rules?
@user well, it would have to be something other than a comma
maybe two commas (,,), or just make semicolons valid in expressions
 
I can get behind (a ; b) being valid
 
Ruby allows it already, for example
hmm, maybe it's not cursed enough
 
Ooh, could you add optional curly braces if it isn't too hard to parse? If you use {a, b, c} or {a}, it's a set, if you use {a:b,c:d} or {a:b} it's a dict, if you use {a; b; c} it's a block
 
4:27 PM
ooh, making from __future__ import braces a reality?
now that's a great idea!
 
4:39 PM
Created a couple more feature requests :P
 
@pxeger somehow the readme for whython seems just a bit off
 
@AaroneousMiller forks are hard
 
I've often seen that with forks, is that a copyright thing or a laziness thing? :P
 
it's a "every time you update the fork you have to remember not to overwrite the README with upstream's" thing
 
4:46 PM
Ah
So it's a laziness thing
 
@AaroneousMiller Maybe we're making a lot of cookies
 
fair enough
 
not fair, i want cookie too
 
lol, I just misspelled Bubbler's name as Bubbly
 
@pxeger BMG is scheduled for next Wednesday
We can hold off Zsh being LYAL until you're free if you'd like, just means that we'll choose other nominated languages
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing if it has to be a wednesday on that schedule it might need to wait till next year
sorry I feel like I'm being too picky with when it can happen
I guess you can do it without me if you want
or I suppose I could start a guerilla LYAL competitor and do it some other time :P

@AaroneousMiller Hmm, I note that you don't say that you aren't HN, WW or Doorknob. Curious
 
Well, I've finally found the motivation to work through my two week backlog of math and history assignments lol
 
Can you tell me where, so I can go get some too :P

Don't need much, I only have math, no history :P
 
I don't have history but I have 2 maths :(
 
9:09 PM
Oh, did they finally release the sequel to math?
 
Practically 3 maths :(
 
yeah this is the reason maths shouldn't be singular
so that you can make it plural

Redwolf: Imagine if someone handed you a box full of all the things you lost throughout your life.
Lyxal: It would be nice to have my sense of purpose back...
caird: Oh wow, my childhood innocence! Thank you for finding this.
user: My will to live! I haven't seen this in years.
Wezl: I knew I lost that potential somewhere.
Razetime: Mental stability, my old friend!
Redwolf: Jesus, could you guys lighten up a little?
Haven't seen my motivation in months (well, motivation for homework, at least) :P
 
Pretty sure "mathses" is what Gollum calls it
 
Because Gollum isn't American
American Gollum would say mathss
 
Nightmare fuel: Gollum with a strong Texan accent
 
Now I'm imagining Gollum with a hat stroking his ring, muttering "Darling..." in a Southern drawl

9:17 PM
uh
 
Does anyone in the lotr movies actually speak in an American accent?
 
I think there were a couple people with fake-sounding British accents
 
Tbf at this point, "obviously fake British accent" all but is an American accent
 
Although tbh movies have conditioned me to think that anyone who doesn't say "Oi mate, geh me a cuppa" isn't British
 
wdym? That is exactly what all British people say
 
9:21 PM
at least once an hour

@pxeger Nah, then there's also the posh kind who wear monocles and eat biscuits with their cuppas
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing i believe you're allowed to fight her to the death to become the next monarch in these circumstances, but I've heard she fights dirty
 
The Hollywood Principle: All British people either have this Cockney (is that the word?) accent or a super-posh cut glass accent

----C----C----C----C----C----C----C----C----C----C
 
I present to you the largest fork chain you've ever seen
 
time to make a hilbert curve out of forks
 
10:33 PM
@lyxal uhhh
 
11:25 PM
@lyxal But what if you add another one?
 
@user I notice that nobody found their virginity in that box... no mine's not in there either
 
This is TNB
This is not a place people go to to lose it
 
11:45 PM
@cairdcoinheringaahing it collapses on itself
 
What about if you shrink the forks first?
 
It's not based on size
It's based on relative fork density
You jam too many forks into a single area and it creates a black hole
 
Interesting, what if you make the forks out of something that's not very dense?
 
Still happens
 
@lyxal Uh, I'm not sure it works exactly like that :P
 
11:47 PM
@user that's what I said too
@user material is irrelevant - it's all about fork like objects
 
But how do you define fork-like?
 
@user if it looks like a fork, sounds like a fork and walks like a fork it's a fork
 
Looks like is quite subjective. Do tridents count as forks? What about sporks?
 
It's just duck typing for forks
@user does a trident sound and walk like a fork?
 
Yes
 
11:51 PM
Then it's a fork
 
What about sporks and spoons? What about sticks? I must know
 
Duck typing in computer programming is an application of the duck test—"If it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck"—to determine whether an object can be used for a particular purpose. With normal typing, suitability is determined by an object's type. In duck typing, an object's suitability is determined by the presence of certain methods and properties, rather than the type of the object itself. == Example == This is a simple example in Python 3 that demonstrates how any object may be used in any context, up until it is used in a way that it does not support. Output...
Apply the criteria yourself
 
What if someone takes a robot, attaches a screen displaying a fork, makes its speakers produce fork noises, and makes its legs fork-like?
@lyxal i lzy
 
@user Then it's a fork
 
@lyxal How about a entity that can transform to anything in the universe, including a fork.
 
11:53 PM
@AlanBagel depends on its instantaneous forkness
If at any time t it displays the three fork traits, it's a fork at time = t
 
@lyxal But there's no rule about making that area big enough to include the extra fork
@lyxal What about a fork in the road?
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing that's what I said too
@cairdcoinheringaahing does it look, sound and walk like a fork?
 
@lyxal How many is too many?
 
It doesn't walk
 
Neither do forks
 
11:55 PM
It gets walked
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing then it's not a fork
@user you've never spent enough time observing them
 
@lyxal wdym, it walks exactly like a fork--not at all
@lyxal Get a life
 
CMQ: what is or King of the Hill?
 
@user it's a special constant called kciR's constant
@user this is just what I learned from my forks physics class
That's how I know about the fork density limit
A practical experiment gone horribly wrong
