CMQ: What should a bit-length operation return when given a negative integer?
 
my gut tells me just whatever the bitwise negation's length would be
but it would be interesting if something else is actually more useful/consistent
 
whatever python's builtin does
 
...til that's a thing
 
^
Looks like it returns the bit length of the absolute value
 
it looks like it gives the length of the absolute value
yeah

Which was the way I was leaning; the other possibility was to add one to the bit length of negative numbers to account for the minus sign.
 
the way the docs put it it does seem like it's motivated by/based on string interpretation more than anything
 
This means that 1) there's not going to be much left of lyxal's original code when I merge his pull request and 2) BLa is going to be exactly equivalent to #TDa (still a 1-byte savings, tho).

does anyone else remember someone (I recall it being rydwolf) mentioning the mccollough effect in this chat room at some point in time (at least a year ago)?
I distinctly remember this happening but I cannot find any mention of it in this room except from 7+ years ago from legionmammal but that's not it...

> The competition was neck and neck this year, and the winning submission was actually disqualified initially as the judges didn’t believe it was C, but somehow the compiler was able to understand it on the third attempt at compiling it.
How I feel about most C submissions on this site
 
@emanresuA, both skip and stringmode are completely broken now, likely due to updates being applied to destructured arguments, which results in the original ip object not being updated accordingly.
 
My bad, I don't program well at 11pm. Should be fixed now
 
Thanks, seems to be working now.
 
These are hilarious honestly
 
Too bad you can't read most of them
 
8:50 AM
Ah :\
 
I do appreciate the name "Paul E. Morphism
 
9:50 AM
Maybe I’m stupid but I don’t understand how this challenge’s definition of prefix makes any sense
e.g. [2,1] is not a prefix of [1,2,3]
 
10:29 AM
@Fatalize It's a prefix set, not a prefix list

I want to buy "sensor gloves" to work with my smartphone outside in cold weather - but I'm unsure whether they are worth the price. Maybe they only allow rude operations - making a call, and are unfit for finer movements needed for working in Telegram and with a map navigation apps - I work a lot with a map navigation app, and I need the gloves to make the screen as sensitive as it is with hands
Ah, in English they are touchscreen gloves, the sensor gloves term is a Russian thing
 
Most of us never go outside, so I'm not sure how much code golfers can help you
 
11:57 AM
Ah! Sorry.
I thought that "golfers" implied you were always outside, on the green
 
We do coding puzzles mostly, which can be done outside in theory but rarely are
 
12:20 PM
 
which question?
 
reconstruct a list of strings from its prefixes
 
huh
wow
nahh they turned me into an online store
 
No vyxal merch :(
Wait I was trying not to join the cult

noodleman.com is actually a web developer's site which is inconvenient considering i am also a web developer
 
first they take my esolang by making a cryptocurrency token with the same name
now they take my very own username for profit
what will they take next?
reading the terms of service page is funny:
I do not operate the website :p
 
@noodleman Maybe time to rebrand to spaghetti man?
 
12:48 PM
@mousetail good call
 
1:23 PM
depends on the type of noodles... macaroni comes to mind
 
Macaroni isn't really a noodle, noodle implies long and narrow
 
huh, I used to call them both noodles, before I knew about things like egg noodles

Q: Can I follow this recipe?

Wheat WizardYou work in a kitchen which has a peculiar rule. When you mix something into a pot you must always add at least one new ingredient. So you can add pasta, oil, salt then pesto, but not pasta, pesto, salt and oil since pesto already contains salt and oil. You only have one pot per dish, so you can'...

damn, I thought I had a clever golf for jonathan's solution using in place of ;\Q€ but unfortunately that only works when the input list is flat lol
oh wait I can "borrow" his for mine :P
funny that œ|\ and ;\Q€ do the same thing here and ẈIṂ and do the same, so if we stole pieces from each other's solutions we'd end up with the same thing that's 1 byte shorter

@CowperKettle Usually not, but we do occasionally golf in Grass

what's the best free llm for translating code from one language to another? I have only tried chatgpt 3.5
translating from R to numpy is still too hard it seems
 
8:06 PM
I'm working on a BitCycle solution for Is this a Permutation of 1..n. Here's a couple of intermediate pieces
