And banned everyone temporarily.
 
You could always move in with @ArdaXi
Then you could use his internet connection!
 
♫ 'Cause I'm having a good time, having a good time! ♪
 
@Wipqozn Err... how about no?
I don't have the room anyway.
 
@ArdaXi um, sorry, but this conversation doesn't concern you. Don't be rude.
@John Are you still listening to that?
Damn. Can't blame you, awesome song.
 
Have any of you tried King Arthur's Gold yet?
 
11:01 PM
@GnomeSlice Yes.
 
@Wipqozn Still? I only found out about it yesterday!
 
@Wipqozn And?
 
@John I assume you've been looping it non-stop and all.
 
@Wipqozn Then don't ping me.
@John You... what?
 
@Wipqozn Well, only twice so far...
 
11:02 PM
@GnomeSlice I only played through the first challenge, and some of the second. Seems okay.
 
How can you not have been exposed to Queen up until this point?
 
@ArdaXi Yeah.... I'm out of the loop a lot.
 
@Wipqozn You need to try a multiplayer game.
 
@ArdaXi He obviously had a deprived childhood.
 
That's... like, you're lightyears away from the loop.
 
11:03 PM
@ArdaXi I've heard "We Will Rock You" and "Another One Bites The Dust", just not "Don't Stop Me Now".
 
If it makes you feel better, I don't recognize that song either.
 
I'm surprised you even know of the loop.
 
@ArdaXi ಠ_ಠ
 
@GnomeSlice How...?
 
@Mana Same thing as John said.
 
11:03 PM
@GnomeSlice It's "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen and @Mana Just loves it.
 
@GnomeSlice I love that game
 
@John I don't even like that song that much!
I just typed it one time.
 
@Mana Well, @Marco blamed you for it, so you must like it!
 
11:05 PM
nonono
Much better.
 
@ArdaXi I don't think that's the full version of the song though.
 
1080p even, for those of us who can handle it bandwidth-wise.
These comments are awesome, which is weird because it's YouTube.
> If you can get a tiger to play guitar and still look dignified in drag, you know you're made it as a human being in 8-bit graphics.
 
@Mana Heathen.
You kids and your rip rap hip hap music.
 
@Wipqozn but I don't listen to rip rap hip hap either
 
@Mana ah good
+10 points to @Mana
 
11:14 PM
Get your shit straight.
 
but -30 for not liking Don't Stop me now
 
It's Boom Box Rap Music.
 
@Wipqozn and I mean it's not like all rip rap hip hap is bad
 
Yeah @Wipqozn don't you know @Mana only listens to the float-on-cloudsy stuff?
 
@Mana I agree actually. It's mostly the mainstream rap, as it's usually about little more than drugs, killings, breaking the law, abusing woman, et cetera
@GnomeSlice my apologies.
 
11:16 PM
@Wipqozn Of course, now I can't find the relevant thing.
 
@GnomeSlice Excellent. Victory to the horde.
Also, @Mana, still on Linux?
 
@Wipqozn WAIT. THIS MIGHT BE IT.
 
@GnomeSlice It would be funnier if it's not though.
 
Nope.
 
@Wipqozn Why on earth would he consider otherwise?
 
11:18 PM
@John My word sir, that is probably the single most smartest thing you have ever said.
Here, have a star.
 
@Wipqozn Um, thanks!
 
In any case, was going to ask if you were up for some SC2 @Mana. However I'm impatient, so I'm just going to play instead of waiting for a response.
 
@Wipqozn Linux all day erry day
 
8 Questions until we hit 10k!
Then our site can see deleted posts. :P
 
@Mana I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
 
11:23 PM
@ArdaXi ?
 
Just me being snarky for no reason whatsoever.
Plus I like quoting Tennant.
Wait... Reddit made r/atheism a default subreddit? That's an... interesting move.
 
Whoa. Just found out Banshee will continue playing after I close it.
 
@John Close it harder.
 
@ArdaXi I had to reopen it, stop it, then re-close it.
I just came across this line: if False: # shedskin can someone explain it? I have no idea what "shedskin" means, and if False should never execute in Python.
 
@John A skin sounds like the appearance of the program.
 
11:36 PM
agh
 
So revert to default appearance?
@John wait, it's literally just "if False"?
 
@Wipqozn But it doesn't have an appearance. I'm reviewing an A-Star algorithm.
And yes, it's literally just if False.
 
ah I see
that's weird
 
Yeah that's why I asked.
 
I can't think of any reason for that, and # means a comment
 
11:37 PM
@Mana Well I know that much. :P
 
I think they're just asserting whether the universe still works the way it should.
Maybe the algorithm would fail on quantum computers and this is their failsafe.
 
@John I LIKE TO SOUND SMART :(
 
It's here. Just scroll down all the way.
 
FOUND IT.
 
@Mana WELL THEN SHOUTING ISN'T THE WAY TO GO
No offense or anything.
Hmm, y'all think it's worthy of an SO question?
 
11:39 PM
> Shed Skin is an experimental compiler, that can translate pure, but implicitly statically typed Python (2.4-2.6) programs into optimized C++.
 
@John I do, since that is really weird.
 
My guess is it's there for black magic related to that ^
 
@wipqozn Watch it.
 
@GnomeSlice I did.
 
@TimStone Ah! It is written kind of statically... The if False line is the only one that's not.
 
11:41 PM
Amusing.
 
BOOM BOX RAP MUSIC
 
@Mana Maybe you should practice.
 
@ArdaXi I do. Every day. :|
 
Maybe you should practice more.
 
@Mana want to play Xonotic?
 
11:46 PM
Also, 8 more questions.
 
@GnomeSlice Naw, working on Machine Learning homework
 
@GnomeSlice I'll play a match or two.
 
@Wipqozn Which server?
@Wipqozn [Official] Xonotic 0.5.0 votable something newyork
 
@GnomeSlice Awesome Server
 
Oh man, Jamie xx's remixes of Gil-Scott Heron are absolutely awesome.
 
11:49 PM
@GnomeSlice that works to
 
@Wipqozn Except it's full of useless bots who aren't set up for the maps
So they just stand still
 
SO question asked.
0
Q: When would `if False` execute in Python?

JohnWhile browsing some code, I came across this line: if False: #shedskin I understand that Shedskin is a kind of Python -> C++ compiler, but I can't understand that line. Shouldn't if False: never execute? What's going on here?

 
@GnomeSlice go to "Awesome Server"
 
@John Might just be a way to "comment out" the block. You're right, it'd never run.
 
@Wipqozn I didn't even see that one.
Oh, that one
 
11:52 PM
@GnomeSlice no
@GnomeSlice one second
 
@Wipqozn The ping is no good for me.
Go to "Xonotic 0.5.0 server"
There's more than one, but mine should be the one with somone in it.
 
@GnomeSlice @GnomeSlice Xonotic 0.5already in there
 
@AnnaLear Interesting. Considering it only affected one line, I would've thought that simply commenting it would be easiest.
 
@John It's a matter of preference. It's possible that False will later be replaced by some other condition, too.
 
@John Oh, I see what the point is.
