I'm writing a small intro to jargon, etc. of this site. Right now I have headings "What is golfing?, What is an esoteric language?, What is a terse language?, On operator layouts, What is a golfing language?, What is a functional language?". Does it seem like I'm missing anything?

I think I should just have suggested reading, for loopholes, forbiddens, etc.. Thanks for the suggestions! I guess I was mainly focusing on the language aspect.

Q: Cannot distinguish (removed) from (removed)

DowngoatI was on mobile chat today and I accidentally sent a message so I deleted it. Then as a joke the message was followed by a message with the literal text (removed). I suddenly realized I could not tell the difference between a deleted message and a faked one: Can this be fixed? Perhaps by makin...

@Fatalize So that's why the mods killed the avocad meme

Why is my icon not the right icon?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Some of this is probably going to be duplicated on the "site-specific text" as part of the design graduation.
 
□ Congrats! Cheddar is done!
 
<- My icon should be a dinosaur
Is it to you?
 
@TimmyD what?
@DanTheMan your chat profile is set to area 51
 
Jun 7 at 1:06, by Alex A.
Graduation perks update: Community ads were inadvertently overlooked and the CMs will get on that soon. Our site-specific text is under review and we'll get a design once we get updated text.
 
8:32 PM
^^ your chat profile should be set to PPCG
 
@TimmyD Oh, yes.
 
Weird
 
Just saying, if you're wanting to make something for this site, you may want to wait until after graduation to see what's what.
If you're going to use the text elsewhere, knock yourself out.
 
I fixed my icon
 
@TimmyD I'm blogging :P

Wow, we're just all sorts of multi-lingual here, aren't we?
Speaking of
I was in a thrift store the other day, and happened to have spotted some CDs that looked Russian. I was able to use my smartphone with the translator app and camera to translate the words so I could do a Wiki search and determine that I did not want that artist.
Truly, we live in the future.
 
@TimmyD You mean your brick-shaped wand.

I am not going to change my name
 
Because I find it annoying when other people do it >_>
 
@LeakyNun For your logic gate challenge, Would taking input but leaving the result on the stack be okay? Alternatively, could the character 0x01 be truthy and 0x00 be falsey?
 
That is allowed by default (the stack output)
 
9:05 PM
The stack doesn't display, it's just left there
 
yeah
that's allowed
 
@flawr I had been happily working through generatingfunctionology, but I got stuck at the mass of definitions about cards, hands, and decks at the start of ch 3. Any advice about understanding those?
 
@xnor I do not remember any, it has also been a while since I last worked on in to be honest=)
@xnor May I ask: What is did you do/are you doing education wise?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ nice job with the cheddar installer!
 
9:14 PM
does it work?
 
@flawr I'm a PhD student doing theoretical computer science
 
i don't use batch
 
you?

@xnor meth math student
@xnor cool!
 
@xnor do you have a specific project?
 
What kind of stuff do you work on?
 
mostly theoretical quantum computing
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ yes
 
quantum complexity, algorithms, etc

You're just now noticing?
 
@flawr its not hard mathematically, most just linear algebra in finite dimensions

flawr does it on all of his messages, and I've slowly gotten used to it. :P

Q: How should vim answers be scored?

Dr Green Eggs and Iron ManI like vim a lot. I've been golfing with it a lot recently. We already have clearly established that vim is a programming language, but there aren't any clear rules on how to score vim answers. The main things that I want to clarify are: Do modifiers (shift, alt, ctrl, etc.) count as an extra k...

 
So can I count as keystrokes?
or have to be scored as that answer
 
I think you should have to use Auto Hotkey to use vim
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ what do you mean?
 
@DanTheMan oh god pls no
 
9:42 PM
@Upgoat I'm glad you like my idea
 
._. np
 
@Upgoat Count how many keys I have to press to get that character.
i.e. SA = 3 keys on qwerty, <shift>-S-A
 
SA is two bytes though
 
If you are unfamiliar with Auto Hotkey, it is a really weird program/scripting language with which the primary usage is keyboard macros. But you can do a lot more than just macros.
For example, you can eject drives
 
9:45 PM
And the documentation is really terrible
 
but the shift key is one press
@DanTheMan it's windows. Windows is garbage.
 
@Upgoat Hm, sounds cheesy. :P I would.probably have to sandbox it, like I do with the Julia interpreter.
 
It is also only for Windows. That was part of the joke
vim is mostly for unix and linux, right?
 
idk
i think so
 
@Dennis I don't think you'd have, to there is no JS eval and it can't do anything interesting (definitely nothing evil)
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ score it in bytes. A ==1 <C-a> == 1 <C-M-a> == 1 etc.
 
Also, V is mostly vim compatible, so you might be able to use TIO
Sans the bugs of course
 
I have a browser addon that puts the memory usage of webpages in the title of pages, and the title for this tab is currently this: pastebin.com/2DH3TqpU (too long to send in a message)
 
@Upgoat So no file access, internet access, ability to spawn subprocesses etc.?
 
9:55 PM
@Dennis I wish ;-;
 
@Dennis Is sandboxing easy on TIO?
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan Hit'n'miss. Sandboxing Julia was very easy, but I've tried it with other languages and it didn't work at all.

A: Why did we get 2 new mods?

badpSome of the existing moderators' capacity to handle flags has reduced, and the moderation burden became too unevenly split. This was the situation as of May 30th, 2016: We added two moderators to rebalance the workload.

 
nice username camel_case
 
Wow. There's a mod abuse graph?
 
10:06 PM
too bad there was no mention of 11
oh wait.
that answer has 11 up votes!
MOD ABUSE!!!11!!!!!11!!!!
 
I finally done it

@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sorry, unsubscribe to emails on comments
 
I HAVE 8 EMAILS
can you not just post one comment
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ github.com/settings/notifications here change "Watching\n Updates to any repositories or threads you’re watching" to uncheck email
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I'm trying to make Cheddar more professional seeming, so can you please not post comments like:

@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ idk, it's just that one thread
 
10:23 PM
okay

@flawr Cool loading icon
 
10:28 PM
 
@flawr Haha, that's amazing. I'm gonna have to get that for my graphics designer sister.
 
@flawr protip: calc()
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan It doesn't load for me
 
@Bálint That is really cool, didn't know about it.
 
It's not that hard to center things and to give them the right size
Just use the proper unit
 
I still don't really get the % though.
I never get what the percentages are referring to.
 
10:31 PM
@flawr It's good for aligning things
Depends on the positioning
It refers to the size of the current container by default
 
So what is it if the current conatiner is just <body>
 
But really, if you use it for anything other than positioning, then you're doing something wrong
@flawr The window's width
 
So how about the height? Can you make anything as a percentage of the window's height?
 
@flawr If you use it for height, then it becomes the height of the window
So let's take an 800 * 600 window
 
I do not have the impression that this is true
 
10:35 PM
width: 50%;
height: 50%;
This way we get a 400*300 element
SO, with percentages, you can't really create a square
This is why we prefer the container and the blog styled website
 
I understood that, but i never get the result.
 
I can't find my example right now, where it didn't seem to work that way.
But thanks for the explanations!
 
@flawr But, if you set the position to absolute, then it refers to the window
^This is probably your problem
Relative works the same as default
 
Might very well have been that way.
Can you recommend any good reference / book?
 
10:41 PM
I learned form trial and error
You have a finite setof CSS properties
 
The other problem probably was that I never realy thoroughly learned it, but always just copied a snipped from here, and another from there, and tried something like this or like that.
 
@flawr percentage heights rarely does what you what
 
@NathanMerrill never*
 
@NathanMerrill I noticed that=)
 
10:43 PM
Again, if you use it for anything other than positioning, then rethink what you're doing
 
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-36543969
 
it's easier to use pixel heights and just use media queries
 
@Quill I hate that.
 
@Quill Or different style types
 
I've actually used them, but it was in a div where the height was calculated
 
10:45 PM
Why can't just everybode everywhere have the exact same screen and browser as I do? It would make CSSing much easier.
 
or you could just carve the design you want on a rock, and then sell that rock to people
 
Just have a fixed size container aligned in the center, and use that
 
@Quill yes
my summer job last summer
 
If you want the height of the screen, use VH units. If you want columns, use flexbox
 
10:46 PM
The style I like to call "blog style" is just a fixed size thin strip in the middle
And you can put your stuff there
It looks something like twitter
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ you did rock carving for a job?
You rock!
 
Last christmas, I got a task from my IT teacher to make a christmas-card-site
 
with chisel
@Bálint lol
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Don't laugh, It took me at least 8 hours, and most of these were taken from different classes
I don't think I went to music class for about 3 weeks once
 
10:50 PM
more lol
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ was it cold?
 
The result was a website, wich seriously looked like it's from the 80s
The teacher wanted everything to move
 
is it still up?
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I wanted to save you from it
But if you want
 
10:55 PM

@LeakyNun will this work?: substitute n different x's into the initial taylor, take the inverse of each of the results, and then you have n equations in n variables(b coefficients)?
