Nah, explain it, but just don't say what language it is
Done correctly, I reckon you could overlap with Jelly, 05AB1E and Husk and no one would know which

Q: Hello i am very new to this.This is my first attempt. I have a challenge

Harry Dorobaright here goes I need a box (let's call it the control box) this C/B will have a turn knob On it and when turned it will send a time in seconds for a 12v current to be supplied. The idea is this using the C/B I would turn it to 45 this will send a 12v DC current to the output motor for 45 second...

 
lmao
 
12:04 PM
One more and I promise I'm done
 
informal golf: assume that a program that doesnt print a valid program (invalid programs are those which do no behavior that wouldnt count as an ERR, as well as quines) has program ordinal 0. a program printing a single n-valued program has value n+1. a prog that prints multiple progs gets a value that is the supremum of the values of the programs it prints
create an e0 program (limit of series w, w^w, w^w^w...)
 
12:36 PM
@Lyxal "Caird" missed the opportunity of saying "Oh, no, not again..."
 
@Andrew I think there's already that challenge on main
 
i posted it and wanted to see how well people could do other values
 
That we having close vote means that people will close vote challenges that they think is not interesting.
If you do, make sure that you demonstrate that the challenge is sufficiently different from the other ordinals.
@Bubbler (where do you learn about things like that?)
 
12:52 PM
i suppose your crit is fair
 
1:13 PM
@user202729 Do you mean the challenge ideas?
Some from experience, some from random thought, many others from randomly browsing the internet
The main reference is usually Wikipedia or OEIS.
Apparently I'm talking about this the sixth time
 
"Nothing interesting", is it?
Would be cool to have arXiv or something like that in the list, I guess.

hi all
 
3:25 PM
any help with my sandboxed question gratefully received
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing They don't have to have an exoskeleton.
Wait, maybe they do
I think they also need to be invertebrates, which disqualifies centaurs.
@Anush Can you link to the question?

@RedwolfPrograms Better alternative: exclusively use TIO. If it takes longer than a minute to run, it isn't worth running :P
 
Yeah but I like my obscenely slow compression algorithm :p

any comments on my challenge gratefully received
 
Just finished the decompression function...it works! I think...
 
what are you compressing?
 
@Anush It's better, although I feel like others may still be able to poke holes in it
 
@user I look forward to it. When is the busiest time on chat these days?
or for people to look at the sandbox
 
Dunno, timezones are weird
 
3:50 PM
I made a graph once of when CGCC was most active
 
@RedwolfPrograms I would love to see it!
 
That didn't work :/
There
I didn't label the axes though
Okay looks like it's 00:00 to 23:59 UTC
Each bar is one hour
 
fun fact that I discovered today: people genuinely still write fortran
 
@RedwolfPrograms what exactly are you measuring?
that is what is the y axis
labelling would be awesome :)
@pxeger there is a gnu fortran compiler that is still being updated!
 
Check out the room info, it has an activity chart for both hours and day of week
 
3:54 PM
@cairdcoinheringaahing is that for the chat room?
 
@Anush It's number of posts in main, which should be a good approximate for the general activity level
 
I was hoping something for activity on the main site
@RedwolfPrograms yes that sound good
 
There's close to no way to do it for the Sandbox. I suppose the site analytics might be useful but idk how
 
what time is the max?
@cairdcoinheringaahing interesting
@cairdcoinheringaahing you can't count comments or posts?
 
3:56 PM
@Anush Lemme check
 
Around 15:00 UTC (around 10:00 EST)
 
thanks
so about nowish!
I should post a question :)
 
it's 16:00 UTC right now isn't it?
 
I thought it was 14:00
Oh wait yeah 16:00
I'm in CST
 
@Anush Using the site analytics, it appears as though Tuesday and Wednesday are the most active days (views, comments, votes, posts, all)
 
3:58 PM
@cairdcoinheringaahing that is very interesting. I wonder why!
 
People use CGCC during work
 
Oddly enough, for this chat room, Thursday and Sunday are the two most active days.
I'd expect it to be Saturday and Sunday.
 
me too
 
Guess we'll have to wait until next Thursday to catch whoever it is skewing those numbers :P
 
:)
can't we see from last thursday?
 
4:02 PM
Oh, that's right
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing I don't feel like scrolling up that far right now, though :)
@cairdcoinheringaahing Thanks!
 
Looks like it's @user causing the spike :P
The activity peak starts from here

6:10 PM
@RedwolfPrograms But there's no 3 in your code
 
Wait was that a requirement?
I don't see it in the challenge
 
No, but how does it check for a difference divisible by 3 without a 3?
 
Ċ is "divisible by 3"
 
...
New fangled golfing languages and their weird builtins. When I were a young whippersnapper, we had to use a "divisible by" and a "3" builtin, none of this "divisible by 3" nonsense
 
lol
 
6:16 PM
Hey it's useful for FizzBuzz :p
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing A "divisible by" builtin? When I was your age, all we had to use "modulo", "3", "equal to" and "0" :P
You younguns take everything for granted.
 
You were too young to have to divide, subtract the floored number, to get the fractional part, and check if it's zero
 
Modulo? Bah, we had to do everything based on prime factorisation, and we'd be happy about it
 
@RedwolfPrograms Divide? In the early days, all we had was a half-adder, a loop, and a few spare NAND gates.
@cairdcoinheringaahing Prime factorization? Back in my day, we just had natural numbers, not prime numbers and composite numbers and unique numbers and all that nonsense.
 
You had half adders? We had to do the addition by hand and feed it back in via punch cards.
 
6:24 PM
@user Natural numbers? You young'uns don't know what it's like to only use bits, and half the time, we'd be lucky to have 1!
 
@RedwolfPrograms Punch cards, smunch cards, vacuum tubes are all you need!
Hell, you don't even need those
@cairdcoinheringaahing Binary? Heh, imagine the things we could've done with a luxury like a positional base. No, all we used was unary. 0's can do it all!
 
We didn't have vacuum tubes, we had to use normal ones. Someone would just flip them on and off, we'd have to send memos for each bit flip since they worked in the other lab.
 
Eh, when I was a wee lad, they'd send us crawling through the tubes, carrying the messages in our mouths. It built character, unlike you weaklings, programming with a keyboard, of all things.
Sometimes one of us would make a mess and clog the tubes, and the others would have to pitch in and help clean up. That's how we generated random numbers (and not those namby pamby PRNGs y'all use today).
 
Imagine having actual computers. We had to imagine our software, and some of us weren't that imaginative

Q: How do the tag warnings work in the "Review your question" sidebar?

Redwolf ProgramsAbout a year ago, the new ask question page was rolled out. The meta post states that sites can customize the review pane in various ways.

In my day, though, all we had was hard ware, no soft ware. It was rough work, chiseling at the hard ware all day, just to make it even add two numbers. Then came the invention of firm ware. It was still quiet hard, but less so. You don't know how lucky you are to be able to work with soft ware.

@cairdcoinheringaahing I was expecting that, so it doesn't count
 
9:38 PM

@RedwolfPrograms have you ever made a meme in desmos?
 
@RedwolfPrograms The chorus apparantly
 
@RedwolfPrograms wait i play piano let me check
 
Wait so you're going to rickroll yourself
By playing it
 
Rickrolling has to have some component of not knowing it's going to happen
That's why Spotify doesn't rickroll me whenever it plays it in shuffle, cause I know it's there

ok yeah its never gonna give you up

I need to find a friend of mine who plays some sort of instrument and give them the sheet music without it labeled

I play bass but the rickroll bass isn't distinctive :/
 
that would actually probably be the best kind of rickroll
a sheet music rickroll
also here's a desmos piano have fun
well non-functional but still

It doesn't count if you expect it
 
@Lyxal You can't always be expecting to be rickrolled

I get the feeling y'all are planning something.
 
Please, drink some water. It'll make them funnier.
Here's another one:
A man is driving down the road and his car breaks down near a monastery.

He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, "My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?"

The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. A sound unlike anything he's ever heard before. The Sirens that nearly seduced Odysseus into crashing his ship comes to his mind. He doesn't sleep that night.

oh you can

Quick! Say something funny!
 
10:44 PM
So redwolf. As a theoretical investor, would you fund our chicken industry based on our sales pitch?
 
This meeting's going to go great! I hope nothing unexpectedly tragic happens
 
Yes!
We're gonna succeed in the poultry industry
 
Wait, the meeting's happening right now?
 
I would certainly invest in your chicken coops
Wait a minute

10:45 PM
@user no, we're planning our pitch
 
@Lyxal Oh ok
 
@RedwolfPrograms I'm waiting
I'm still waiting
 
Never mind, I was beginning to suspect something but I figured it was too much of a stretch
 
@user huh?
 
There's no way y'all are secretly going into the two-doored car industry
 
10:46 PM
Leave the paranoia to me buddy
I can handle all the hypothetical stuff
 
Here's why you should fund us:
1. Chickens are tasty. Everyone wants to eat chicken (I bet even vegans want to secretly try one of those chicken patties)
2. Chickens are cute. This makes it that much more delightful when you eat them.
3. Chickens are small. They are portable, so you can stuff one in your backpack for a quick afternoon snack.
4. Chickens can survive with their heads chopped off. This means that you can eat your chicken's head and leave the rest for dinner.

Any other questions? Or would you instantly sign the dotted line?
