@Simd well (2^64 choose 1000000) includes a division by 1000000! so you can just cancel that out

@Seggan which one is weirdly specific? Do you mean the 64 bit question?
 
5:07 AM
CMC: Given a string, match all the indices of matching parentheses. ex: "((()())())" → [[0,9],[1,6],[2,3],[4,5],[7,8]]
 
i don't wanna
 
[copy brainfuck interpreter]
[change brackets to parens]
[keep the loop analysis code and delete the rest]

@Simd like 3/4 of all your CMCs ever lol
im not saying its bad
just odd
 
12:51 PM
@Seggan Please tell me about any strange CMCs
I don' t mean them to be odd
 
as i said, its not a bad thing
 
I wonder how other people come up with theirs
 
just your CMCs tend to be a really specific problem
 
how else do people make them?
 
i typically dont
so i cant tell you
 
12:52 PM
I just pose questions that are somehow related to some code I was thinking about
or a method I read about
64 integers are standard and 1000000 was just a big number
 
works for you, i dont care, i just saw a pattern /shrug
 
thanks for pointing it out
I don't know if I know how to be less odd :)
 
3 mins ago, by Seggan
as i said, its not a bad thing
 
thanks
 
very cringe
and to think there's been rumours they're gonna add a copilot key to the Surface Laptop 6
 
1:00 PM
@lyxal NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
thats one of my favorite buttons
 
it can be turned back on though
 
I guess you have to be online to use copilot which is a problem
 
I ended up turning peek back on and hiding copilot altogether

i'm gonna be posting this in a few hours, someone please tell me it's a dup before i do
 
Not a dupe afaict
 
3:17 PM
@lyxal I was just starting to hope this wave of AI craze was dying down :/
But as someone who now works at a tech company...NOPE
ugh
how can these people not see themselves in the mirror
Instruction-tuned LLMs are and will continue to be a disaster for having a well-informed and productive society
Winter better come soon
 
YES
i agree
i cannot wait for the 3rd AI winter
 
This wave was awesome until IT LLMs started getting abused. ChatGPT was where things went downhill

i got into a reddit argument with someone who thinks bard is sentient
completely ignored all my arguments but oh well

KotH idea: chess on an infinite grid
You have the normal 16 pieces, but they're scattered around a grid and pawns can move any of the four directions
 
what if instead of every pawn having king movement, you just have pawns of four different types that can each move in one of four directions
 
ooh what if if a pawn ends up further outside than any opponent's piece, it promotes
so you could tie up a piece by moving it a thousand tiles away to some distant corner to prevent promotions, but then you lose a piece and run the risk of it getting captured and potentially a ton of pawns suddenly promoting
 
3:50 PM
further as in higher?
 
maybe further as in "outside of the smallest rectangle that encompasses your opponents pieces"?
 
4:38 PM
@RydwolfPrograms AHAHA YES
 
4:52 PM
@Seggan why would you get into an internet argument
 
@zoomlogo it runs in my mom's family to debate tbh

@RydwolfPrograms ah i found a dup, but it's another X-without-Y challenge (forbids stdlib): codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/36802/…
i think it'll be fine, that question is +7/-5

Q: Swap letter cases

bigyihsuanGiven a string containing only printable ASCII (codepoints 0x20 to 0x7E), write the shortest program or function that swaps the cases of A-Z and a-z. If a character is in [A-Z], convert it to its lowercase version. If a character is in [a-z], convert it to its uppercase version. Otherwise, leave...
