omg, I was on SO looking at the answer and turns out the answerer was a fellow goat:
blo0p3r, Ottawa, Canada
3.4k 4 27 49
10/10 goats
@TùxCräftîñg best penguin image ive seen 11/10
someone should make a mathematica program that searches SE for "goatly" user avatars. After all, it has a builtin for that.
@TùxCräftîñg idk if anyone will notice though since it'll be so small
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ yes pls
@LegionMammal978 you there?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ mathematica probably have a builtin to do the whole task ._.
6:07 PM
not quite ;)
hi all
hi @Dennis
@Lembik hello!
@Lembik hi part of all
anyone algorithmic/mathematical fancy a go at my challenge?
it's ripe for the winning :)
6:09 PM
I'm not. >_> /exempt 183551
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 :)
ahh, (s)he has gold badge in PHP
oh no ._. there is 3 goats on SE for now
oh I found one on PPCG:
@TùxCräftîñg but it is still obvious i am the best goat ;)
goatmeal, Texas

^ & ^^ & ^^^
@TùxCräftîñg Please stop.
i am evil MWAHAHAHAHAH cough cough
@TùxCräftîñg ;_; y u do dis
6:22 PM
@Dennis Yes but the interface itself. Do you customize it if a language needs it (e.g. the way inputs and outputs work) or is it the same for all?
Hello @SimonForsberg, welcome to Programming Puzzles & Code Golf chat :)
How did you get here? My room list, eh?
ono it is evil CR mod
@Downgoat shhh, it's no evil
6:27 PM
@Downgoat I'm not evil (this time), just came here to be friendly, this time...
Hey programmers that write crappy code folks, we just got an interesting meta question on our site which I think apply to your site as well: Can the help page on what a good answer is be updated with specifics. I just checked your "How to answer" page and it seems to me like it could be updated with PPCG-specifics.
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 No, I searched for "byte" and clicked on the room, wasn't very hard really...
Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon described in 1973 in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. The FBI's Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly eight percent of victims show evidence of Stockholm syndrome. Stockholm syndrome can be seen as...
Ah k :)
@TùxCräftîñg ;_;
6:29 PM
Oh, you folks have Community Ads... nice! I just have to add one, I actually think you might like it...
@SimonForsberg >_> i have a bad feeling it's gonna be "stop writing bad code and come to CR"
@Downgoat Nope, it's "Use my IDE and write even worse code!"
@SimonForsberg :D +1 + 1 +1
6:31 PM
but that was a good idea, I'll talk to the Code Review community about that one ;)
Honestly there's a lot of work that still can be done on my Brainfuck IDE, but it is quite helpful if you know how to use it
using ides is too easy. i only use N++ and a terminal
using apps is too easy. i only use terminal
using terminal is too easy. i only use serials ports
Well, for Brainfuck I think an IDE might be helpful at times :)
@TùxCräftîñg relevant xkcd:
6:34 PM
ninja'd ._.
i was searching it
that was the least useful spoiler alert
ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ
idk what movie are you talking about
@mod pls delete spoiler pls
@TùxCräftîñg latest comics
6:35 PM
oh nvm i dont care about the comics
@Downgoat didn't have to, @Optimizer got there first
oh god . a CR mod in here!!!
@SimonForsberg are you talking to yourself in the issues of brainduck github ._.
@Optimizer Yeah!
10 mins ago, by Downgoat
ono it is evil CR mod
6:37 PM
@TùxCräftîñg I don't know... maybe? Which issue(s) are you thinking about? Anyone in particular or just generally?
every issues are created by you .__.
or at least the creator of the repo
He's not o_o
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 are you SimonForsberg ?
@TùxCräftîñg I'm not O_O
6:40 PM
@TùxCräftîñg Yes, I am talking to myself. There's not been that much other people creating issues there unfortunately.
I kinda use it as a public todo-list
and to get feedback on what others think is important
@SimonForsberg You should try Trello as the public todo list. Trello's great and does all things :P
Well, at least it sorts you out on things.
Trello make coffee ?
no, so it's dont does all things.
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 I like Github Issues though. No need to use two different webpages when I can use one.
4 mins ago, by zʏᴀʙiɴ101
Well, at least it sorts you out on things.
Yes, @TùxCräftîñg, I have that.
6:48 PM
I'm so sorry >_> I posted an CR answer ;_;
A: Basic arithmetic calculator in JavaScript

DowngoatAdding onto @gcampbell's answer. Especially with ES6, I'd start to move away from objects. ES6 brings us the lovely Map class which is much, much, better than objects. Objects are evil, they have no proper way to check if a property is actually not there. Looping through them is ugly and you can...

@Downgoat Yay, there's hope!
they were using objects in es6.... i couldn't help myself
@Fatalize The interface cannot be customized right now. What would you like to add?
7:02 PM
@Downgoat i know that eval is evil, but sometimes, there is no other choice. my most recent use case being limiting scope of js files.
7:13 PM
hi @MartinEnder
2 guys from CR on TNB ? ._.
Phrancis and SimonForsberg
7:27 PM
i am on a mobile internet so i cant watch .____________.
@muddyfish Invitation sent
@charredgrass Invitation sent
@TùxCräftîñg Invitation sent
and accepted
i mean ._.
7:32 PM
It's been ages since I've actually done anything on Steam. The only thing I've done on Steam in months is invite people to the Steam TNB group. :P
hi @orlp
hi @aditsu
7:38 PM
@Lembik hi
parlez-vous francais?
je ne parles pas francais
7:39 PM
@Lembik I've been working on one of your challenges btw :)
@aditsu ooh! which one?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ un peu
@orlp your code is still the best answer so far for the runs challenge!
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Sprachen ze Deutsch?
7:39 PM
a hard one, I'd rather answer with an actual answer :p
@TùxCräftîñg c'est votre langue maternelle?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ oui
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 deutsch*
dutch is nederlands :)
@aditsu is the runs one or an older one?
not that one
7:40 PM
@aditsu all my questions are hard :) (well.. a lot of them)
@aditsu Goat is and has always been man's best friend along with dogs
who says you can't have 2 best friends
@TùxCräftîñg c'est sympa!
@Downgoat a goat is harder to keep in a house than a dog .__.
@aditsu I am intrigued! Do you want to keep it a secret until you answer?
@Downgoat I feel sorry for your roommate if/when you get one
7:42 PM
@TùxCräftîñg i beg to differ
yeah, or until I give up I really want to do it :p
when was the last time you saw a goat type as fluently as me
@aditsu I look forward to seeing your work!
it might take a few days
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ thanks for next year's april fools idea
7:43 PM
@aditsu I hope for your sake it isn't codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/62922/… :)
because it's reaaaally hard :)
23 hours ago, by Cᴏɴᴏʀ O'Bʀɪᴇɴ
oh god what have I done
heh, ok
I hope for my sake it is that one as I would love to see a good answer
7:44 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ʏᴏᴜ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ᴅᴏɴᴇ ᴛʜɪs

anyway, gotta get some sleep now
@aditsu good night and good luck!
thanks :)
@Lembik have you seen that movie?

7:48 PM
oh my
the downvote button is broken now .____________.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ which one?
@TùxCräftîñg If Geobits was here he would be aghast
7:51 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ no :(
you should, it's a good movie
\o/ \o/ \o/ I unborked chedr \o/
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ thanks
@Downgoat nice!
7:53 PM
you are welcome
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I can't do anything until someone answers my challenge :)
5 bullgard warnings when i go in the site ._________________________________________.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ to make cheddar more functional, what functional functions should there be? I have curry, idk what else
7:55 PM
function composition
@Downgoat may I? :3
(omg bruh wtf)
if I want to flip a bit in an array.. that is make 1 -> 0 and 0->1 is there a neat way to do it without if statements?
this is in python
that's it
8:03 PM
+[bool] work like int([bool]) \o/
@Downgoat There is a challenge about the functional programming paradigms.
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 link?
Q: Implement functional programming paradigms

WizardOfMenloYour company is just getting started on a project, and for the first time you decided to go use a functional programming code-style. However your boss is really diffident and doesn't want to use built-in functions, and requires you to implement yourself the main functions. In particular you need ...

@Downgoat Here now
Can't get my eyes off of this:
it's a hypercube ?
8:09 PM
@TùxCräftîñg Yeah!
@LegionMammal978 what's the code to make it?!
@Lembik I got the gif off of Wikipedia
we need the golfed code for it :)
@LegionMammal978 .o/
what should be the default join operator (if any)
8:12 PM
just been playing with stochastic hill climbing for my challenge :)
empty string
as no one else... sob.. :(
@Downgoat Joining what?
@Lembik Import@"http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d7/8-cell.gif"
@LegionMammal978 hmmm :)
@Downgoat In general, I'd suggest <>
8:18 PM
wait no I meant seperator
Is the standard for [fastest-code] to just allow any tool / language / library of answerer's choice (along with instruction on what and how to install)?
@Downgoat Separating what?
(srsly though, still can't get my eyes off of that gif, it just has too many cubes)
@LegionMammal978 fancy math is always fancy ;)
8 mins ago, by Cᴏɴᴏʀ O'Bʀɪᴇɴ
empty string
yeah, i just did that
2 mins ago, by LegionMammal978
@Downgoat Separating what?
separatable things
Such as...?
things that should not be together
Such as.....?
8:22 PM
If you are joining an array with an item that cannot be cast to string, should it error or just do < instance of whatever >
A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

Greg MartinIntroduction First time posting—here goes! I wanted to think of a challenge that depended less on spiffy processing features of languages, and more on clever thoughtful implementation. This proposed challenge, when programmed ungolfingly, boils down to processing and generating the ASCII-picture...

when i try to understand what going on in the hypercube gif my brain overheat ._______________________________.
8:27 PM
@TùxCräftîñg o_o your brain must be overheating a lot
especially since penguins are really cold
since they live in the arctic
@Downgoat not mandatory (go to distribution and habitat)
@TùxCräftîñg oh
so then what country do you live ?
7 mins ago, by Downgoat
If you are joining an array with an item that cannot be cast to string, should it error or just do < instance of whatever >
you mean a thing like [1, 2, 3] + 4 ?
8:31 PM
no like:
oh joining .__.
[1, someUnprintableObject, 2]

^ needs feedback
@Downgoat not understanding you
@ArtOfCode you're back \o/
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 that I am
@ArtOfCode i have destroyed QPixel .__.
@Downgoat error obviously yeesh
8:34 PM
Surprised to see that QPixel hasn't crashed or broken too badly in my absence
@ArtOfCode in Cheddar, the user can define how a class would cast to a string. If there is an array, containing an instance of that class, and the user is trying to join that array into a string. Because that one item cannot be cast, should an error be thrown or should if do < instance of class >
@quartata should that happen for printing too?
idk JS doesn't error and JS does a lot of things right
@Downgoat error plz. Don't do a JS.
for printing, I'd try to actually display the object.
8:35 PM
JS is too permissive
I think objects should have two methods: toString() and printFormat()
JS is fine for the web but it's a terrible programming language
Objects should have a default printFormat() of <instance of class> but no toString()
@quartata that exists with ES6
@TùxCräftîñg wat
how did you even
8:36 PM
@ArtOfCode It's not even fine for the web
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I'll probably have an IO.debug which prints out the object along with a bunch of debugging info
and can you repro
@ArtOfCode spamming the upvote and downvote buttons
@Downgoat You get what I mean though? That way you can have a normal print format but not be able to cast it to a string
8:37 PM
and have you added symbols?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ >_> oh I totally forgot
should there be symbol literals or just a general class?
Q: Introducing a New Golf Language

Socratic PhoenixSo over the past week I've developed Just Another Interpreted Stack-Base Language (JAISBaL for short), and I had a few questions: Is there any reason JAISBaL would be illegal to use for the general code-golf tagged challenges? (I've seen other questions asking about introduction of new language...

@TùxCräftîñg I'd sorta expect it to break a little under abnormal usage like that...

user image
or is it more like ?
@flawr lol
@flawr both

thoughts on this?
8:41 PM
@GamrCorps One: never trust youtube comments
@GamrCorps it's a YouTube comment, ignore one or both according to your preference
@GamrCorps Where did you find it?
And yes: R is from the devil.
That pastebin UID is almost a word.
@flawr o_O
Tipper vs Begger
Also, that's a pretty normal size for a trace
12.13 KB .____________________________________________________________________________.
8:50 PM
@TùxCräftîñg I think you just broke the internet.
my hobby is to break internet
along with programming useless stack-based golfing language
I can tell
now there is 2 downvote buttons WTF
@TùxCräftîñg @Geobits
@Downgoat we can see you at the top of the screenshot
8:52 PM
poor artofcode D: i am annihilating his site
By the way, was there any interest for my Urban Planning proposal around here? I feel like there was, but then again, it's the summer, the weekend, I'm tired from school, and I'm probably dreaming
@TùxCräftîñg meh, al that for an error in one line.
@ArtOfCode you mean this
@TùxCräftîñg only client side, because JS is terrible. The server is still sitting pretty.
@TùxCräftîñg yeah
8:55 PM
all that is is a 404
@Zizouz212 You dare to disagree?
are you serious .__________________________.
a 12000 chars long 404 .____________________________________________________________.
@flawr My mom surprised me that she wanted to learn R. She asked me to set it up for her, because she was going to do an online stats course.
Of course, she yells at me every day because I "do weird stuff with computers" all the time
@TùxCräftîñg yep. It's just Vote.find throwing.
8:57 PM
@Zizouz212 Haha=)
What does she do for a living? (If I may ask)
@Zizouz212 my parents stopped doing that when they realised that weird stuff included fixing their computer every time they break it, and keeping our network secure.
Pretty sure once I installed it for her, she touched it only once, and never again
@flawr She works in education and media. Or something like that. I don't remember
8:58 PM
Hence: get access to the network control panel, change the password, and take over the world network
@TùxCräftîñg what is this website?
@aloisdg QPixel ?
You'd have to work pretty hard to break the QPixel server
My dad always tried to play with the router settings to block things, but then once he ended up blocking his own computer XD
8:59 PM
I just have the impression, that when you come from another programming language, R feels so inconsistent.
@TùxCräftîñg yes
@flawr I agree. For stats, I think python is better. But then that's also because it's waaay cleaner
@aloisdg a Q/A site created by @ArtOfCode, but this site is mainly for trolling
