@TùxCräftîñg
 
i dont find anything that can help me in itertools .__.
 
itertools.combinations
dangit
my program converged with an actual answer
deletes and tries again
 
done \o/ thx
 
yay
how long?
@TùxCräftîñg
 
i didnt golfed it ._.
 
2:07 PM
that's fine
can I see the code?
Maybe I can help golf.
 
174 bytes golfed
import itertools
def luck(s):
 luckn=2**max([j-i for i,j in itertools.combinations(range(6),2)if"lucky"[i:j]in s]+[0])
 for c in s:
  if c in "omen": luckn -= 2
 return luckn
forgotten to shorten varnames
._.
 
import itertools
def f(s):
 n=2**max([j-i for i,j in itertools.combinations(range(6),2)if"lucky"[i:j]in s]+[0])
 for c in s:
  if c in "omen": n -= 2
 return n
 
@TùxCräftîñg from itertools import * helps a lot

Q: Do not repeat yourself

Eᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏ IʀᴋInspired by this challenge Given a number m, output a program that prints out the string Do not repeat yourself. Now for the challenging part: Each program the original code prints out has to have the byte at place m*n be the same as m*n + 1 and the same as m*n + 2 .... all the way down to m*n ...

@TùxCräftîñg hahahahaha we used teh same idea
from itertools import *
lambda x: 2**max([b-a for a,b in combinations(range(6),2)if'lucky'[a:b]in x]+[0])-2*sum([y in'omen'for y in x])("lucky")
144
 
agh too hard
ayyyy that lucky challenge is mine
 
lambda s:2**max([j-i for i,j in itertools.combinations(range(6),2)if"lucky"[i:j]in s]+[0])-sum(c in"omen"for c in s)

@charredgrass yep
@TùxCräftîñg
from itertools import *
def f(s):
 return 2**max([j-i for i,j in combinations(range(6),2)if"lucky"[i:j]in s]+[0])-sum([2*(c in'omen')for c in s])
@TùxCräftîñg down to 136 on your program
from itertools import *
lambda s:2**max([j-i for i,j in combinations(range(6),2)if"lucky"[i:j]in s]+[0])-sum([2*(c in'omen')for c in s])
 
your challenge seem hard ._.
 
2:15 PM
from itertools import*
lambda s:2**max([j-i for i,j in combinations(range(6),2)if"lucky"[i:j]in s]+[0])-sum(c in'omen'for c in s)*2
 
nice
@muddyfish i got that on hte end when I pasted it in.
._.
 
poor you

lel
(on portal 2 challenges)
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ do you have steam?
 
yes
EasterlyIrk
with small caps
 
2:26 PM
I'll send a friend request :)
done
 
I use my 'halloween' avatar all the time on steam
 
I remodel my Steam profile way too much
like, too many showcases to change
:P
 
aha! Beat @El'endiaStarman's time.
 
I don't have a Steam profile.
 
2:33 PM
that's okay
 
You were dueling in time?
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ you need to golf down your time
 
Could someone add me to The Nineteenth Byte steam group?
 
Or what it is?
 
2:34 PM
there;s a Nineteenth byte steam group? sign me up
 
there is a steam group for TNB ?
 
@TùxCräftîñg Yeah! :D
 
please add me :D TheKsp25
 
@charredgrass just beat him by 25 seconds.

Q: Decompose string into blocks

Ewan DelanoyYour program's input is a string containing whitespaces, parentheses, and other characters. The string is assumed to be parenthesed correctly, i.e. each right parenthesis matches a unique left parenthesis and vice versa : so the program is allowed to do anything on incorrectly parenthesed strings...

 
@AlexA. Assuming you're alex on TNB steam group, could you add me?
 
@charredgrass sure
 
@AlexA. Can you add me to the Steam group? profile
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ here is your ping for absolutely no reason, as requested on your profile
 
2:41 PM
thx
@charredgrass I have to say, you have epic tf2 items.
 
Thanks, lol
 
@charredgrass sent
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ the TF2 items only set me back around $300 :P
 
.-.
@charredgrass would you trade the unique rainblower you have?
 
sure
(it's worth like half a cent)
 
2:49 PM
ik
but I can't find one, and want one
 
you know what, just take it for free
check your trade offers
 
hi all
 
I never use the rainblower, it lags the crap out of my game
 
hi
 
@Lembik hi
 
2:53 PM
I am wondering if anyone is working on codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/84592/…
 
@Lembik hi part of all
 
It would be great if you could make a note saying "thinking about this problem"
:)
 
@Lembik I've had it in the back of my mind but still not great at that kind of stuff :P
 
@charredgrass thanks!
@charredgrass o_O
how/why
 
2:54 PM
@charredgrass ah..well that's good. If I can help make anything clear please let me know
@charredgrass I even have a suggestion for how to win :)
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Pyrovision kills my graphics, bad GPU on my laptop. I use an aussie flamethrower anyways
 
oic
yeah, saw that.
nice gear
 
@Lembik I feel like I could use regex somehow but suck too much at it :P
 
@charredgrass dang, for someone with only 211 hours of tf2, you have lots of stuff
 
@charredgrass I think a greedy approach will do well
 
3:00 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Yeah... I actually just write a lot of code for Steam/TF2 related projects and get given items sometimes for shitty node.js code
 
wow
 
@muddyfish ?
 
hats for bad code? sounds like a great idea

thank you for the upvotes whoever you are
my challenging is quickly entering the hall of fame of most upvoted unanswered questions :)
 
x = 9, y = 4, rule = B3/S23
bo$9o$2b7o$2bo5bo!
 
3:05 PM
which is a shame as I think a relatively simple strategy would be competitive
 
how long does a bounty last?
 
7 days
 
ninja'd
 
it says on the question how much longer there is
why do you ask?
 
oh just wondering. I might do it tomorrow since I have work next week then, or slack off at work when I get bored with the HTML crap they make me do as an intern :P
 
3:09 PM
@charredgrass great! As it stands any answer at all will win the bounty :)
 
Challenge idea: decrypt the extended Welscher format.
 
@charredgrass o_O
what kind of code
i should do that
 
trading bots and crap
Pretty simple node.js stuff
 
oic
@charredgrass you want to play tf2 sometime? Not this week, I'll be gone, but next week?
 
the hard part is that Steam sucks and there's tons of errors
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Sure! I've got work on weekdays, but I'd love to play, especially because of this new big update
 
I call complete BS on the media currently flipping their sh*t about Pokemon Go. People die! Teen discovers body! I mean, there are so much more Ingress players (atm). I don't remember ever reading something like this about Ingress...
 
@mınxomaτ Go has more attention. People are excited for the game so there's more exposure than Ingress
 
@charredgrass :D to the playing, D: to the update
NOOOO
UPDATE IS AWFUL
UPDATE IS AWWWFUULLL
 
haven't tried it yet
I heard they ruined pubs
 
3:17 PM
0/10
 
Well, PG places Pokemon in ridiculous places (like in the middle of the highway). Ingress places targets at places where humans are supposed to go. So maybe there's something to it.
 
@mınxomaτ True. Also the places in Ingress don't move, right?
 
Yeah. That's the point. You meet (and fight) people at the target.
 
@charredgrass specifically they killed the old quickplay method (for the most part).
everything is matchmaking now, so it can take like 20 min to get into a game
:/
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ A valve employee posted on reddit that they were going to scrap that for casual since it was so bad
 
3:19 PM
I finally saw community ads.
These include Downgoat's stolen ad, so how to completely hide the community ads?
 
uhh
you could probably AdBlock -> block element it
or if you use a CSS applying extension like me, display:none it
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 Stop it already with the artificial drama!
7
 
@charredgrass ?
 
Is there a way for mods to immediately make the undelete votes decay? :|
 
3:36 PM
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 ?
 
Well, nothing, now that I completely overhauled the advert.
 
@charredgrass ?
 
Warning: the advert has been completely overhauled. — zyabin101 1 min ago
 
0/10 now looks just weird

NewMainPosts has failed me.
 
This idea is intended to be finally copy righted, so that it doesn't "look weird".
 
3:41 PM
...
you can't do that
it's a CCA thing

It's a very insecure license, not recommended for advertisements.
 
@aditsu o_O TIL i ignored NewMainPosts somehow
 
So, I'm looking to working around this license to make the idea unable to be stolen.
 
3:43 PM
fixed
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 You can't.
Now stop.
Seriously.
 
also you were wrong in about 5 different ways
 
Alright then, I'll delete my advert again.
 
"Also, x needs to be >1" - "x is the sum of the lengths of all of the correct programs it outputs "
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ You can if you believe.

3:46 PM
You can't copyright ideas
 
@Fatalize Of course you should be able to.
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 no you shouldn't
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ see above and try to logic
 
Content should already have defaulted to CC-BY-ND, the safest license in the world.
 
You can patent the techniques to make a flying car but you can't patent the idea of the flying car
 
3:48 PM
Not just on SE, but anywhere in the world.
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 If you didn't want anyone else to use and have your ad, why did you make it for the community?
Seems like there's a disconnect there

congrats \o/
 
@LegionMammal978 ??
 
R-pentomino
 
I still don't get it. ._.
 
@LegionMammal978 nice! But i thihk you need like 200M to make an iron man movie
 
B3/S23
 
3:58 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I'm not sure if I understand your challenge. Could you provide an example and the score it gets?
 
@aditsu can I use your program as an example?
 
Also, I'm still calling it "portable".
:P
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I don't think that's necessary.. also I just noticed the linked question which has more and better examples
 
4:01 PM
@LegionMammal978 I don't get the connection between [110, 158, 203, 205, 220, 234, 334, 398], an ascii art, an R pentomino, and B3/S23. :|
 
The linked question is very different.
 
well, my answer (without the quotes) works for that question
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 They're permutations of the R-pentomino, art representing the R-pentomino, the R-pentomino, and the rule for Life.
(Happy now?)
 
4:07 PM
cheddar> [1,3].len

:D :D :D :D I fixed cyclic dependnecies1!!!!!1
    get Scope() {
        return require('../../../stdlib/primitive/Array/lib');
    }
do i get reward for most hacky solution of 2016? :3
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ what if our program works on every single input. Does that mean our score is infinity / infinity == ??? 0?
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan didn't you see the min?
 
Drat
So it's not in our best interest to try to get more inputs right?
 
not more than 10, I guess
 
4:21 PM
cheddar> var a = [1,2,3]
cheddar> a
[1, 2, 3]
cheddar> a.push(4)
4
cheddar> a
[1, 2, 3, 4]
\o/ \o/ \o/
 
@Downgoat Now add pop, insert, and remove.
 
should there be a replace function?
 
Yeah, there should.
 
i.e. a.replace(1, foo) is equal to a[1] = foo
idk since the latter
i guess i need regexes as the last thing but idk how to lexer them
 
Now add pop, rock and disco.
 
4:25 PM
Can you add a function to cheddar that makes nachos?
 
cheddar->melt()
 
@aditsu nah, im not a that big a fan of disco
 
cheddar->maim()
 
@quartata I'm using . not -> >_>
 
cheddar->slice&dice()
 
4:26 PM
@quartata ;_; y u do dis
 
lots of potential here
@Downgoat Hey, I'm not one to tell the public how to eat their cheese. I'm just trying to provide lots of options
 
@Downgoat just start with the basics, you can add EDM later :p
 
@aditsu aaahhhh nooooooooo, whyyyy o_o
 
(EDM stands for EDaM)
 
still not cheddar >_>
 
4:28 PM
I'm officially a robot.
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan congrats on 8k!
 
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 i thought you were a unipants.
 
I'm now not a robot \o/
 
Well I'm leaving now, see you in a week!
bai!
 
4:30 PM
@Downgoat when could you come to the zyabinVI room?
 
soon, almost done with cheddar :D
 
BAI! Have fun!
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ BAI! don't forgot to say hai to the gaot there from me :3

@NewSandboxedPosts Thanks :3
 
4:44 PM
@Downgoat i won't. bai!
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 hahaha
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ ^_^ \o/
 
4:59 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I have to say, I've started noticing Bai drinks in a lot of places ever since you've embarked on this advertising campaign....
 
I thought bai only had horses in their advertising campaign, not cats... TIL
 
I wouldn't know I've never tasted it nor have I seen any ads for it
But in the past 3 months I've started seeing it more which makes me very suspicious
The timing is too close
 
is there a more golfy way to do:
a = -a;
oh yeah, Math.abs >_>
 
But abs is always positive
a=-a inverts the sign
 
yeah but I have conditional to see if a < 0
 
5:05 PM
oh ok
 
@Downgoat uhhh Math.abs(a) is longer than a=-a
 
but in cheddar you can do abs a
 
That's still longer
 
oh wait that's still the name >_>
 
5:11 PM
\o/ cycle function works!
@TùxCräftîñg hello
 
hello
 
pokemon red race starts now
 
ICANN should introduce a ".js" extension.
 
@mınxomaτ yeah, that would be cool
 
5:17 PM
> omfg yes plz
._____________.
 
@TùxCräftîñg ?
 
dont lie. i know you have written this first
 
wat
 
@TùxCräftîñg idk wat you're talking about
 
._______________.
 
5:20 PM
you've gotta change your avatar to a ._.
 
no i am a penguin
more seriously i dont have the srawing skills to draw a ._.
this is too hard
 
@TùxCräftîñg Just use the text tool.
 
go to microsoft word and type ._. and take a screenshot
or crop this:
 
.___.
 
5:39 PM
^ my new avatar
.__________________. transparence is messed up
 
@TùxCräftîñg ...it's not every day that you see a penguin with a face on its belly. o.O
 
xD
transparence is messed up .____.
i have reverted the avatar
 
*whistles nonchalantly*
 
NaN messages moved from Trash
 
Anyways, I have apparently just been invited to trash...Now I wonder who did that. -_-
 
5:51 PM
El'endia
 
@R.Kap The SE chat system automatically does that whenever any of your messages have been moved to a different room.
 
Yeah, I was being sarcastic
I know it was @El'endiaStarman
 
Pro tip: ignore any invitation to Trash.
 
(deromver)
 
5:54 PM
I did not...I saw it all...°_°
 
@TùxCräftîñg Well, no one cares if you spam Trash (or the Sandbox [chat room], for that matter). :P
 
@Fatalize Don't worry about that. I wrap most interpreters in a shell script to make them compatible with the backend.
 
@Dennis I was more thinking about the interface of the page
 
@TùxCräftîñg Yeah, good tip.
 
@Fatalize The frontend just communicates with the backend, which in turn communicates with the interpreter.
