2:00 AM
i was just playing boggle with my mother and wrote down QUINE and QUINES like how am i supposed to explain that
2:13 AM
It's a program that prints itself
A quine is a computer program which takes no input and produces a copy of its own source code as its only output. The standard terms for these programs in the computability theory and computer science literature are "self-replicating programs", "self-reproducing programs", and "self-copying programs". A quine is a fixed point of an execution environment, when that environment is viewed as a function transforming programs into their outputs. Quines are possible in any Turing-complete programming language, as a direct consequence of Kleene's recursion theorem. For amusement, programmers sometimes...

Lol I got quine in scrabble once. Probably not in the scrabble dictionary but since it was on google my family took it lol
imagine playing scrabble using the scrabble dictionary
(quine is in the scrabble dict btw)
@lyxal it's become sort of a tradition when I play scrabble with my cousins to allow the urban dictionary to be used, meaning half the time spent on turns is just looking up random words to see if they exist
also, that means I could theoretically play lyxal in a scrabble game
it also means I could play milldillmixins
@lyxal that actually sounds so cool lol
does sound like it would get pretty stupid if anyone started metagaming it and adding nonsense ahead of time but that would probably be pretty easy to sniff out :P
3:42 AM
two of the games I could find
there's always at least one r/hmmm word
we've done this for like 3 years every time we get together and there's a scrabble board nearby
actually possibly even 4
lmao nice

A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

emanresu AVisualise the Euclidean GCD ascii-art The Euclidean GCD Algorithm is an algorithm that efficiently computes the GCD of two positive integers, by repeatedly subtracting the smaller number from the larger number until they become equal. It can be visualised as such: We start with a MxN grid, where ...

3:53 AM
@UnrelatedString I'm basically the only one who would be bothered enough to even think about gaming it by adding nonsense entries to the urbdic :p
and I can't be bothered :p
Now I'm imagining esolang scrabble
You'd need to have all of ASCII for that probably lol
And include stuff like TMMLPTEALPAITAFNFAL
Actually, probably all of unicode - ASCII alone doesn't have enough kaimoji

Q: Complement an infinite list

emanresu AIn this challenge, we define the complement of a list of positive integers as all positive integers not included in that list. For example, the complement of the even numbers [2, 4, 6, 8...] is the odd numbers [1, 3, 5, 7...]. Your challenge is to, given a monotonically increasing, infinite list...

my cousin played Weezer, I turned it into Weezerful
my old phone has way more games to look at
but i
think it's uncharged and dead
Oop no actually it does have charge
Just gotta let it boot up rq
gonna have to deal with the 60hz refresh rate tho :sob:
ugh the screen feels odd too
wow it's actually real slow too
aaand vivaldi froze the phone
12:39 PM
@cairdcoinheringaahing why'd you close that meta post about byte scoring as a dupe of what is Vyncode?
One is a site rule proposal, one is information about a certain code golf thing that is on the site.

@TheEmptyStringPhotographer OakBot is your bot right? Or is it Peteird's
It's been talking in rooms it's not supposed to
oh boy
I think it's petaird's tho
2:50 PM
why is there an ongoing discussion in the sand trap
why wouldn't there be?
3:17 PM
@Joao-3 the sand trap is for off topic discussion, are you thinking of the bakery?
4:12 PM
@RydwolfPrograms No, it’s Michael’s

Q: Generate Conway's Atomic Elements

CursorCoercerBackground The look-and-say sequence begins with \$1\$, each following term is generated by looking at the previous and reading each group of the same digit (eg. \$111\$ is three ones, so \$111 \rightarrow 31\$). The first few terms are $$ 1, 11, 21, 1211, 111221, 312211, \dots $$ Conway's cosmol...

7:40 PM
Why do I have the feeling this could end up being rather dull and trivial.
7:50 PM
hmm not so sure now
8:11 PM
ooh actually cool challenge
8:53 PM
i wonder if any answers are going to actually do any look-and-saying
I hope so
I believe using trivial base compression you could get down to ~300 bytes
i was gonna regenerate it :P
With some pretty simple look-and-saying I've gotten it lower than 300
there are a few "chains" where one element just becomes the previous
but certainly there's more to be saved than just by encoding those
9:30 PM
well just encoding those chains saved me 60 bytes over string compression alone

A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

emanresu AIs this your answer? answer-chaining In this challenge, you must write an answer that distinguishes itself from all previous answers. No matter what input is passed in, it must output one of two consistent values. Your answer must output one value, marked as "truthy", when your answer's code is i...
