1:00 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing *cries with you*
 
To any boomers in this chat, no offence intended whatsoever, we're just joking
 
@user I'd be surprised if there are any boomers
 
True
A good percentage of CGCC's users seem to be students
 
By my reckoning, Adam, Neil, John are the only ones who could be considered "boomers" and I think they're all closer to Gen X or Millennials
 
@user no! We are not JoKing
Ffs
How many times do I have to explain this?
 
1:01 AM
@Lyxal I hate you
 
@Lyxal <whisper>Everyone is Redwolf, Redwolf is JoKing, therefore everyone is JoKing</whisper>
 
Redwolf is not JoKing
 
But if everyone is JoKing then user is JoKing and thus JoKing is user and thus everyone is user
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing okay who the hell starred this?
 
@Lyxal Everyone else who hates you :P
 
1:03 AM
@RedwolfPrograms Well, everyone is everyone. We are all one.
 
Aw, I got unstarred :(
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing If only two people hate Lyxal, they're doing pretty good :P
 
@user Lemme just fly to Australia and sign Lyxal's bullies up for CGCC :P
 
<whisper>I starred it because it seemed funny</whisper>
 
Wait Lyxal is no longer hated
 
1:05 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing The ones on the bowling team?
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing What is a boomer?
 
The generation born shortly after WWII
 
Baby boomers (often shortened to boomers) are the demographic cohort following the Silent Generation and preceding Generation X. The generation is generally defined as people born from 1946 to 1964, during the post–World War II baby boom. The term is also used outside the United States but the dates, the demographic context and the cultural identifiers may vary. The baby boom has been described variously as a "shockwave" and as "the pig in the python." Baby boomers are often parents of late Gen Xers and Millennials.In the West, boomers' childhoods in the 1950s and 1960s saw significant reforms...
 
@Adám I think the common definition is "born between 45 and 65"
 
on the internet a boomer is anyone older than ~20
 
1:06 AM
The phrase "Ok, boomer" is often used in a derogatory way.
 
Well, I was born in '85, so…
 
@rak1507 A boomer is anyone you disagree with
 
Pretty much.
 
@user wouldn't say it's derogatory, normally fairly jokingly
 
@Adám Don't take this the wrong way, but you're much younger than I expected/thought
 
1:06 AM
What's the right way to take that? :p
 
It's a label you put on someone who acts like a stereotypical old person.
 
I thought you were in your 40s at the youngest :P
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Not offended at all. I'm old in spirit.
 
@RedwolfPrograms I'll leave that up to Adam :P
@Adám Fair enough, I resonate with that, at least somewhat
 
@rak1507 Old people walking past often get quite worked up when they hear it
 
1:08 AM
*cries in being 18*
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing boomer :P
 
God, am I old?
 
yes
 
Get off my lawn
 
It's pretty relative
 
1:09 AM
Ooooh, I'm only 24 edits away from being in bronze :P
 
Turns out Boomer means quite a few things.
 
And 245 from being in Silver :P
 
Wait so calling someone a Boomer could mean they are an adult male kangaroo :p
 
@user missed opportunity buddy
 
@Lyxal Hmm?
 
1:11 AM
You know what I mean
 
Lyxal, do you use tumblr?
Cause you are a walking shitpost machine :P
3
 
ouch
 
@Lyxal Wait, are you a kangaroo? I knew you were Australian and that you were in university, meaning you were over 18, but I never put it together...
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing how'd you know
I swear I keep that a secret
 
@Lyxal gasp Lyxal is Pukicho
 
1:13 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing I think you meant to say hopping, since they're a kangaroo
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing I don't deny that
 
@user I didn't join CGCC, I joined PPCG
 
@Neil Ok, boomer :P
 
The name change was pretty recent, right?
 
Yes
 
1:14 AM
2018 IIRC
 
I'm pretty sure I joined ppcg too
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing 2018 is recent... ?!
 
And just as I learned the site acronym they changed it.
 
I thought it was 2019.
 
1:17 AM
idk the physics behind it, but time has been on some hardcore drugs for the past 18 months
4
 
Ugh my school capitalized Java as JAVA in the description for the computer science class
 
@Lyxal You haven't denied that you're a kangaroo yet. Does that mean you are a kangaroo?
 
@user I'm not a kangaroo
 
@RedwolfPrograms JAVA is a very different language from Java.
 
@RedwolfPrograms hehe you're suffering with me I suspect
 
1:20 AM
@Lyxal Exactly what a kangaroo would say
 
@user redwolf doesn't let kangaroos recruit for the hivemind
 
I've found people who spell it JAVA are usually people who use it like C and don't have a lot of practical experience with it
@Lyxal That's racist.
 
@user it's for the benefit of the kangaroos
 
@Lyxal innocent until proven guilty, I'd say kangaroos are generally more innocent than humans, so you'll have to prove that :)
(although that's definitely not how any government works)
 
We made a specific rule against kangaroos in the hive mind after one joined the basketball team
 
1:22 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing seems fine my only criticism would be that there are potentially too many input formats
 
@Wezl I rickroll people. I troll people. I post cringe.
2
 
@RedwolfPrograms There's a team? Who do you play against?
 
I'm guilty of dead humour
 
Anything you say may be held against you in court...
 
@user Golden retrivers mostly
 
1:23 AM
@rak1507 The three tasks are standard I/O rules
 
fair enough
 
This is the most active I've seen TNB in a while
 
@RedwolfPrograms That seems unfair
@RedwolfPrograms I know, right?
 
@user ew haven't people heard of social distancing?
 
just now remembered on the "what's the worst complexity you've posted" topic that there was one answer a year or so ago where I worked out that the big-O time complexity was a product of like three different exponentials
 
1:24 AM
Who's going to physically hold it against me?
 
It's always active right before I go to bed :(
 
Are they going to make me hold my own words myself?
 
@UnrelatedString Yeah, I remember one of Dennis' answers being something like O(n^n^n) or something similar
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing whoa
 
@Wezl same here pretty much, damn it americans
 
1:25 AM
@Lyxal Kangaroos can't catch COVID, everyone knows that. So if you're afraid of it, then that means only thing...
 
@UnrelatedString Who needs efficiency when -1 byte?
 
@rak1507 Blame the rotation of the Earth, not us.
 
@rak1507 We're affected too, I gotta get dinner soon :/
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing precisely
 
@user why can't the earth be flat! honestly
it would be so much more convenient
 
1:26 AM
@rak1507 ? It is flat.
 
is offended as an american
 
I'm going to make a challenge that's sort of like code bowling at some point, but with time complexity
 
The opposite of fastest-algorithm?
 
Yeah
(Restricted source, of course)
 
25 mins ago, by caird coinheringaahing
@Lyxal I hate you
Boo challenges that have any involvement with time/time complexity
 
1:27 AM
@user flat with a light source that covered all of it rather than rotating round the hemisphere or whatever flat earthers believe the sun does
 
I believe I just witnessed the beginning of the end of the world.
I saw a butterfly flying around
 
CMP: what is your chat activeness score? Go to your chat profile page and compute [...document.querySelectorAll`.activity-stats .mspark`].map(e=>[...e.querySelectorAll`.mspbar:not(now)`].map(e=>e.style.height.replace("px","")/40).reduce((a,b)=>a+b)).reduce((a,b)=>a*b)
 
111.51375
 
All it did was email my bank info to russia
 
@rak1507 No, the Earth rotates while the Sun stays fixed
 
1:28 AM
@Adám 93.75750000000001
 
@Wezl that's why you need to move down under
 
ah
 
105.37312500000003
 
is lower more active I assume?
 
@user stupid flat earthier.
The earth isn't flat.
 
1:29 AM
Mine is 124.3225
 
The earth is flat. Australia doesn't exist.
If you go to close to the edge NASA shoots you.
 
@Adám 55.64 (low, but probably much higher than a corresponding score for posts on main)
 
@RedwolfPrograms lies.
 
Aw I have to leave now :(
 
@Adám Do we want high or low scores?
 
1:30 AM
The earth doesn't exist idiots
2
 
@rak1507 No, I don't think so. It is basically a measure of how much of the time you you spend being maximally active, if I understand the graphs right.
 
weird, I thought it was lower -> more active at first, but Wezl isn't that active so now I think it's higher
but I'm not that active (certainly not as active as caird) so who knows!
 
@Adám 133.07187499999995
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing High for street cred, low for productivity.
@UnrelatedString Whoa, you barely sleep.
 
 
1:31 AM
Yeah, I'm active more or less 24/7 as I never log out, so I'm doubting your score/calculation
 
@Lyxal @rak1507 ^ This is basic geography
 
@Adám then I'm productive :(
 
And don't bring your incorrect political beliefs here, please.
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing I think the system only counts when you actually write messages.
 
@Adám more like I monologue drowsily in the Perhaps room
 
1:32 AM
On the otherhand, I don;t send messages between 2am and 9am UTC
 
I also don't log out.
 
and also just don't have a sleep schedule
 
@Wezl no wait I just superior platforms
 
@Adám fistbump logging out is for amateurs :P
 
What?! I have more messages than caird this week
 
1:32 AM
like as of right now I get up at like 9 AM and get to sleep around 11 PM
 
@rak1507 Wait, seriously? Oh, just this week
@UnrelatedString 11AM, 1AM for me
 
a week or two ago it was more like I'd be getting up at 9 PM and getting to sleep at noon
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing yeah, definitely not all time lol
 
CMP: Number of all-time chat messages, including your answer to this poll.
 
how do we find that out?
 
1:34 AM
@Adám 1105
 
@rak1507 It is on that same page, your chat profile.
 
bottom right
 
Don't even talk to me unless you're in the most frequent users of all time in TNB
 
@Adám 3190
 
@Lyxal I prefer "stupid flat earther"
 
1:34 AM
oh, that's what the bottom right is, including this one, 6466
 
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing How do we find those?
 
@Adám 34746
 
@Wezl but that doesn';t include the message you're posting it in
 
@Adám Click "frequently in room"
 
1:36 AM
@Adám tell caird that doesn't include even the room owners
 
@Wezl The room owners haven't been here in years
 
oh, oops, I was looking at the total figure that has APL orchard + TNB + others, in TNB I only have 726 (including this)
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Oh, that's what you mean. So only two others beside me are allowed to speak to you?
 
@Adám I'm that exclusive :P
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Should I even bother speaking to you when I have almost twice as many total messages compared to you‽ (64876)
 
1:38 AM
@Adám Are we counting advertisements for Dyalog, cause I have much fewer of those :P
 
;-)
 
ಠ_ಠ If I get Fanatic on Movies and TV, I'll have more gold badges there than here, where I've actually put effort into getting badges
 
Wait, am I like the active user with the most messages?
 
Seems like it
 
1:40 AM
yup
 
You are probably the highest rep user who "survived" Monica
 
Possibly, but Bubbler survived too, and I subsequently gave most of my rep to him.
 
If we say "survived" = still active on main/meta/chat, we have xnor, Arnauld, Luis, Kevin, Jonathan, Doorknob, DigitalTrauma, WW, JoKing, Bubbler, ovs, Shaggy and HN above you
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Above me in CGCC rep, you mean?
 
1:45 AM
I was within 21 rep of you, but I awarded a Best Of Bounty :P
@Adám Yeah
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing OK, but at this point, looking at rep as a rough measure of experience makes no sense without adding all bounties one has awarded. Without ever bountying, my rep would be 53921.
 
@Adám Granted, it has it's flaws, but most people don't offer as many bounties as you
Rep is, typically, a decent judge of experience
Hell, it's used to calculate "Candidate Scores" in mod elections, so it clearly means someting up to 20k
 
Heh, candidate score would make sense to consider given bounties, though it probably doesn't matter for anyone but me.
System not geared for people leaking massive amounts of rep ^
Yeah, I know very well what it feels like to have access to site analytics, thank you very much. I've had that access for most of my time here.
 
@Adám I think your rep progression is pretty unique across the network tbh :P
 
I've been a bit lax about bounties lately, hence the flattening out of my otherwise constant downwards trend.
 
1:55 AM
I guess you;ll have to post more answers in order to get the rep for those bounties :P
 
I have to go just about now, and now I realize just how distracting TNB is }:(
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Unless you're here for work, of course.
 
@usr Are you 2x-1 or a'_' or whatever username you went by?
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing I can answer that for you: yes.
And there are a lot of usernames that have come and gone
User:A, A__, btup, a'_', petStorm, ThirdParty'Chef', 2x-1, A̲̲ and Λ̸̸ are the ones I remember.
 
2:26 AM
isn't there also another 2x-1 account now
 
Yes.
I'm pretty sure they are the same
Although there could be a change that there's a copycat

@cairdcoinheringaahing CMQ: How do I pick a username so that people don't suspect me as 2x-1?
People here seem to have excellent memories...
 
Make it an anagram of a different user's name :p
 
usr
@RedwolfPrograms Good idea. It's going to be yours then. :p
 
Good luck finding anything that's actually sensible english :p
 
@usr Don’t delete your account on a regular basis

3:09 AM
CMM: Worth having or not?
 
no
oh actually there are a fairly significant number of questions, but I would still say no
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing no.
Too niche
 
I disagree, I think it's worth having. If we have , is fine
 
that one can go too
 
Can I just edit it off the 1 question that has it?

I've got a separate operator for nth root already
I think I figured out a solution

20 rep is still necessary to use chat right?
About this comment.
@user202729 Ask which chat? — user101295 8 hours ago
 
Yeah, although mods can give any user access
 
7:00 AM
@RedwolfPrograms whats the final type of everything
stax has an int-nth root for floating point problems
 
I think since they'll take floating point numbers as the first one, the output will be floating point
 
@Lyxal 25
@RedwolfPrograms stax has this integer version for nth root due to floating point inaccuracy things
 
With most of Ash's operators, if all of the inputs are integers it'll default to an integer output
 
hmm ok
ah yeah stax uses typescript

I don’t get the point of that
What do you think is the Sandbox is for, and do you really think that whatever it‘s for can be done in a few hours?
I think the only line of thinking I can see is “I’ve been told to post it in the Sandbox first, so I’ll do that, wait a bit then post to main” because they haven’t understood what the point of posting to the Sandbox is
 
5:16 PM
yes
and they refused to change the IO format
 
yep
 
which is like.. ok you can if you want, but...
 
We don't bite, we are here to help :P
 
well I will bite if you keep refusing to use the sandbox :\
 
5:33 PM
@NewMainPosts Hello, for this kind of challenges, can more than 2 answers be posted, in same language, or one answer (already posted) is final?
 
@Wasif yes, if they use substantially different approaches
but tbh I think this kind of challenge isn't very interesting because it's so specific and there can be only a few answers
 
yes, my code isn't very well golfed so there are definitely better solutions
 
@pxeger Yes so I asked OP to change the rule to allow all languages
 
if the challenge was much more lax, output primes up to n and mark twin primes, it would be ok
 
5:50 PM
@Wasif that's not always gonna work with this kind of thing because the definition of "statement" varies with languages
 
the rules about newlines etc are dumb and shouldn't exist
 
why is there no comment downvote button
 
6:24 PM
anyone have a view on posing reproducing this as a challenge? pbs.twimg.com/media/EvPFPTmXYAEs0oJ?format=jpg&name=small

I haven't posed a picture challenge before
 
@Anush I would recommend ignoring color, and just mandating that the segments need to be filled (e.g. black)

yay, they made a better version
 
Old one VTCed as dupe :P
 
it's very refreshing to see someone take on board feedback and make a better updated version
 
6:36 PM
I wish they'd edited their original question to be less restrictive tho
 
yeah same here
oh well
I doubt there's anything that makes code shorter considering those test cases only, right?
 
Maybe someone will find a hardcoding approach, but I doubt it
 
do you think I can get away with returning ["2", "3*", "4", "5*"] etc

@Lyxal Boo
You can make better jokes than that :P
 
I forgot Lyxal lives in the future, it's still the 28th here :p
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing no, I really can't.
But I hope y'all have been training hard lately...you'll need stamina for the 31 day long march
 
I'm not sure if that joke is an improvement or not
But I still like it
 
9:47 PM
@RedwolfPrograms yes redwolf of course you aren't "sure if that joke is an improvement or not"
You're redwolf programs
Good to see someone is finally listening
 
I get the feeling that Lyxal's girlfriend may be pregnant. Dad jokes are often the first sign :P
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing bold of you to assume I have enough confidence to be in a relationship
@user I have proof that I am indeed not a kangaroo
This is what we do to kangaroos sometimes
And clearly I'm not dead
Not all roos meet this fate, but some do
I don't have to worry about this because I'm not kangaroo
 
Have you ever eaten kangaroo?
 
No
Only because I've never had the opportunity
I probably would if it was offered to me
Vegans please don't cancel me.
 
@RedwolfPrograms Yes
It's not bad, but it's not good enough to be a first choice pick
 
9:55 PM
@cairdcoinheringaahing that sounds about right. I'm pretty sure that's what I've heard other people say too
 
Meat here is boring. The weirdest I've seen are buffalo and alligator.
 
I've had zebra once
Tastes like chicken beef
 
Raindeer is amazing.
 
@Adám I'll have to take your word for it. I wouldn't even know where to get reindeer down under.
 
I've had normal deer, but no reindeer
 
10:07 PM
@RedwolfPrograms I suppose you'd get reindeer by leaving normal deer in the rain and then eating it.
Happy now caird?
Does this meet your expectations of humour?!
 
@Lyxal It's better than the first joke :P
@Lyxal No ಠ_ಠ I'm convinced I can golf a couple of bytes from an answer of mine but everything I do keeps it at 38 bytes :/

What are the ways you could draw this in python? pbs.twimg.com/media/EvPFPTmXYAEs0oJ?format=jpg&name=small
I think it should be doable with turtle
But how else?
I think I will pose a challenge for this image soon
 
@Anush I'd suggest using the Sandbox first
 
Yes
But I am interested to know the different ways you could do it in python too
I guess tikz/latex should be possible too
 
10:41 PM
From "What types of questions should I avoid asking?" page in our Helper Center:
> You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.

If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here. However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain ______ to me”, then you are probably OK.
