@RedwolfPrograms imagine knowing what you're doing when 3d printing
Made by I sucked at STEM class gang

@lyxal I mean I mostly don't :p
My experience totals to watching a few hours of YT videos, reading the manual, assembling parts of it, and printing one thing :p

From memory, it's mostly just rotating stuff until it fits
And also making sure that your structure won't collapse
@lyxal what I also remember is scaling it too
But then again, it's been 3 years since I last used a 3d printer

...is Aaron Miller unpingable for anyone else?

@AaronMiller you good fam?
@cairdcoinheringaahing maybe my cupboard is blocking your pings :p

@AaronMiller Your Simple Badges userscript seems to break on /search tabs, putting the SO badge before the username:

I don't know how the heck this happened, but the filament got wrapped around the extruder gear

@cairdcoinheringaahing what're you listening to?

@cairdcoinheringaahing I'll give a +200 bounty to anyone who can tell me what YT video I'm listening to here, or +100 if you can tell me just the artist :P
(Hint: it's a compilation of works by a single specific artist)

You can't tell

12:15 AM
@RedwolfPrograms And like...I don't know how that could even occur

@cairdcoinheringaahing Because the fact that the tab is playing audio is hiding all info

I know :P
That's why I'm offering a bounty :P

It was wrapped around in a direction consistent with it spinning in the direction that would extrude, not unload, filament

@cairdcoinheringaahing time to start guessing
Guess 1: Toby Fox as the artist

If any of y'all know me well enough to guess the artist, I'll be so impressed I have to give rep :P

Imagine needing blaze rods, when you can use blaze powder instead :P

for what, crafting alchemy stations?

Convert to 2 powders, use 1 to power a village brewing stand, and the other to make the potion

@cairdcoinheringaahing that's relying on risky Stockholm syndrome strats though

People always write off the kidnap + Stockholm syndrome strat, but given enough tries, it works out in the long run

@cairdcoinheringaahing doesn't that require like 1 in 7.5 trillion luck?

Use a server plugin that you dont notice, you can increase those changes :P

no idea, never used it, just heard of it as an equation solving library

@pxeger sympy can solve this problem it turns out (thanks!) but not other very similar ones. It either has a technique it can use or it doesn't it seems

it might be easier to write a bruteforcer tbh
that's what I'd do (assuming you only have a small number of problems like that one, and they're similar in complicated-ness)

Hey, would someone mind giving some feedback on this? I'm not sure if this is a good question ... codegolf.meta.stackexchange.com/a/23905/106557

> Your circle does not have to look perfect, it just has to be identifiable as one.
Unfortunately, that's unobservable, and could lead to it being closed. What is "identifiable" as a circle?
I'd suggest coming up with a single standard "circle" that can be scaled with r

Let me explain what I had in mind by that. Due to floats and sin/cos and different implementations it'd be impossible to force one specific output unless you used a different method
Thats why I thought that was agood idea
thinking about it I get why it's not

@Jadefalke You'd be better off requiring a scalable format, which people can then approach is various different ways, rather than relying on vague wordings such as "identifiable", unfortunately

Yep, totally get that

Aside from that tho, assuming it isn't a dupe, it looks good

CMQ: Search for "python". Are the results mainly about the language or the snake?

Interesting, I got the same in Incognito too (although a Related search was "Python snake"), I guess the snake just isn't too important

using duckduckgo, the first non-language related result was at #87, and it was about a model of pistol, not even about the animal
and beyond there it's a mix of mostly the language and occasionally some branded thing and still nothing about the snake in the first 100 results

Poor real pythons :(

for me, it's mostly about the language but then a few things about the snake on bottom of page 1-page 2+

I stopped killing people with toxic venom while coding, it's not very pythonic

For me, the first thing not about the language is at the bottom of page 5, and it's about some movie about some giant Python

Shitty Life Pro Tip #16: How to get rich quick

4. ???
5. Profit

The IRS only does tax stuff

Any feedback? I'll add some testcases if it's good to post.

@emanresuA Do languages need to take input as some kind of floating-point type? Or do you just mean some kind of rational number when you say "floating point"?

@emanresuA I'm confused by the positive integer part. What's the output for input 5? 0?

5 is invalid afaict, since 5 doesn't have 5 digits

So the only valid non-negative integer is 0?

It would appear so, if you're using 0-indexing. 0 is invalid if you're using 1-indexing, so it'd be 1 then ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Wrapping would be better imo

7:05 PM
IMO drop the whole integer clause
It's covered by the weighted average part
And is only applicable in one case

True
@user I love how chat records your message as being edited even if you didn't actually change anything before hitting enter (check the history)

> 𝑛 will always be less than the number of digits of 𝑛, and ≥ 1 if you're using 1-indexing.
Consider 2.68 when 0-indexing. It's less than the number of digits of n, but ceil(2.68) isn't a valid index. Similarly 3.68 for 1-indexing.

I would change this to something like
> If you choose 0 indexing, n will be >= 0 and ceil(n) will be < the number of digits of n.
> If you choose 1 indexing, n will be > 0 and ceil(n) will be <= the number of digits of n.

Or emanresu could just choose one system for everyone

That too, which would be better imo
In that case, I'd still recommend changing it to something like one of my two sentences
Additionally, "the number of digits of n" needs clarification; does 5.20 have 2 or 3 digits?
I assume 2, otherwise input will pretty much have to be a string and not a float
Alternatively, you could drop the "less than the number of digits of n", and say that 1.2[2] = 1.20[2] = 0
Which would possibly make the challenge more interesting

Hey, I just had the greatest idea. You know how drugs are nice short-term but have very bad side effects? Well, we can work around that

10:55 PM
Long term drugs with good side effects?
That's been an area of research for a while :P

Just take even more hardcore drugs to get over the pain. One side benefit will be that if anyone tries to drug you, you'll have the tolerance of a horse and won't get even a little high
This definitely won't immediately result in overdoses :P

You say that, but it doesn't, if done correctly :P

@cairdcoinheringaahing Nope, just lots of short term drugs, but the government gives them out for free so everyone's high

hedonism ⊆ nihilism :P

Is it really?
Also, does the ⊆ mean that it's possibly equal to nihilism? :P

I would argue that hedonism is a tenet of nhilism
At least, that's how I practice it

Huh
I figured it'd be possible for someone to be a hedonist (is that what it's called?) without being a nihilist

11:02 PM
I maintain that the principles of hedonism overlap enough with nihilism to be a subset

I could definitely imagine someone thinking the All-Powerful Pizza the Hutt created the universe and humans with one purpose in mind: to have fun :P

Especially as hedonism is often related to sexuality

@cairdcoinheringaahing They certainly overlap, but I wouldn't say it's a subset
@cairdcoinheringaahing I don't see what that has to do with nihilism

> Nihilism is the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated
I think my intrepretation of nihilism is ...off :P

I'm a nihilist, so now "nihilism" can be whatever I want to be. That's exactly how it works, right? :P

11:04 PM
My interpretation of nihilism is that nothing matters, and so the pursuit of personal enjoyment is tantamount in existence
> Hedonism refers to a family of theories, all of which have in common that pleasure plays a central role in them.
That's a subset of my interpretation of nihilism
Specifically that, when the issue/topic arises, pleasure and enjoyment are more important than potential consequences (ignoring crimes, obviously. believe it or not, I mostly observe the legal system)

@cairdcoinheringaahing I guess the second part makes sense, and I certainly agree that hedonism can overlap with (optimistic) nihilism (I think? I may be wildly off about what that means), but you can believe that there is a purpose to your life and that that purpose is being happy because Pizza the Hutt has decreed it

Pizza the Hutt has been overthrown here by Do the Minos :P

No way, no one out-pizza's the Hutt :P

£1.96 for a medium pizza? Hells to the yeah

can Pizza hut deliver you a \$2.71 pizza with 2 toppings? Thought not

Of course not, because they have quality pizza
