12:00 AM
So you get the remaining votes on the next day or what?
 
@flawr no you just don't get the rep from them
 
So it's VERY good to hit it just before the day rolls over...

why has this time gone up >:(
 
That's how time works, knob
 
I am pretty sure time isn't supposed to go backwards but ok
 
12:04 AM
@AlexA. He's a doorknob, not a dog.
 
@Doorknob How mean!
 
@El'endiaStarman Better?

okay wait what
 
Lolz, indeed.
 
who designed this timer
now it's at 1min 42s O_o
 
12:05 AM
@Doorknob Time is an illusion created by the government to steal our tax babies. puts on tinfoil hat
 
:D
 
Basically the timer changes a lot when your download speed changes. Or then the timer is just cat /dev/urandom | show-timer

why has my download speed gone up by an order of magnitude? O_o
 
why'd you need inkscape
 
12:07 AM
For what it's worth, file copy timers these days are a lot more consistent and accurate.
 
@El'endiaStarman Depends. Sometimes they work, mostly not.
 
@Doorknob You need Internet Explorer for faster downlod.
 
downlod
 
@AlexA. And Ask Toolbar for boosted downloads
 
And that purple gorilla spamware for extra internet
 
12:08 AM
Bonzi Buddy?
 
@Pietu1998 YES
 
@El'endiaStarman I... don't even remember the last time I've seen a file copy timer. On the other hand, I am constantly tortured by download timers :P
 
that's NT btw
 
@TheDoctor Yes, of course.
We attack at dawn!
 
12:09 AM
lol
i really wish I had gpus
 
why would you take a screenshot of a picture of a screen
5
like seriously
 
hahahahahahaha
 
That's from my friend
 
12:10 AM
i want 3 billion gbps
 
I personally posted a screenshot of my Peak Download Rate and then he commented with that
 
He beat me by about 2 orders of magnitude
 
@Calvin'sHobbies CLOCK FACE TWELVE OCLOCK
 
Beat me by about two orders of magnitude too.
 
12:11 AM
@Doorknob dos clok has face
I'm going to order some magnitude from my local Thai restaurant.
 
Cu guys, it is way too late again....
 
g'night!
 
@flawr Goooooood night
 
So it's 2:17 am. Am I going to sleep? AM I GOING TO SLEEP? NO!
 
FIGHT THE POWER
 
12:21 AM
Mini challenge: Given a 12hr time, find the distance between the endpoints of the clock hands if the hour hand is 1 unit long and the minute hand 2 units..
 
Closed as duplicate
 
I've seen angle
 
So you mean Euclidean distance on the face of the clock?
 
Wouldn't answers to that other challenge be able to make a trivial modification using some sine/cosine nonsense to answer this one?
Hence dupe. ;P
(I'm just being difficult because I don't want to think hard enough to actually participate in this chat challenge.)
 
12:25 AM
@Calvin'sHobbies input in what format?
 
Task: golf sqrt((sin(hrs*30deg)-2*sin(mins*6deg))^2+(cos(hrs*30deg)-2*cos(mins*6deg))^2)
 
@ThomasKwa hh:mm
@AlexA. (that's ok, I'm really expecting answers)
@Pietu1998 Seems bout right
 
Will input ever be h:mm?
 
no
Star?
 
What?
Are you assuming it's me who starred those things?
 
12:34 AM
@MartinBüttner I think it would be beneficial to change yes to yes | tr -d \\n in your catalog. Too many posters seem to interpret infinite stream as infinite lines of finite length.
 
@AlexA. Shun barrier until you solve: Output the names of two distinct PPCG users using fewer bytes than are in the names combined.
 
tries to think of users named after commands or errors
 
Minkolang online interpreter now has examples! :D
 
Examples of what?
Various fruits and vegetables?
Types of antique Persian rugs?

@Calvin'sHobbies We seem to have a bunch of those.
 
@Dennis I shoulda said distinct names >.>
 
Wait no, that doesn't work
 
@El'endiaStarman Nah, I'll just assume it's the rugs.
 
@Calvin'sHobbies what is this I don't even
 
12:48 AM
Don't worry about it.
 
@AlexA. I always worry about it.
 
@Mego Come build self repairing spleef arenas

@Calvin'sHobbies Is that what you guys are doing on the server right now?
I might be able to sign on a little later this evening
@Dennis Who is Williamson River?
 
12:51 AM
Dennis Williamson
River Williamson
Alright
 
@Calvin'sHobbies I will in a little bit, helping my mom set up her amazon firetv
 
@AlexA. I'm the only one on :/
 
:/
 
:\
 
:|
 
12:52 AM
@Mego Make sure to keep a fire extinguisher handy
 
@AlexA. I have your mixtape, it's the exact opposite of fire
 
for q in __import__("itertools").cycle(["/","|","\\","-"]):print("\r:"+q,end="")or __import__("time").sleep(0.5)
 
:—
long dash is better
 
@Pietu1998 n,q=0,r'/|\-';while 1:print("\r:"+q[n%4],end="");__import__("time").sleep(0.5)
itertools is never the best option
 
@Mego SyntaxError
 
1:00 AM
Where?
 
You can't do statement;while
 
@Mego My mixtape...?
 
@Mego ok
 
@Mego Yeah, but I wanted it on one line :D
for q in __import__("itertools").count(0):print("\r:"+"/|\\-"[q%4],end="")or __import__("time").sleep(.5) is better though
 
1:02 AM
n=0\nwhile 1:print("\r:"+r"/|\-"[n%4],end='');n+=1;__import__('time').sleep(.5)
 
@Mego Yeah, but I wanted it on one line :D
 
You don't need count(0) either
count(start=0,step=1)
(defaults)
Back to helping my mom, bbs
vanishes
 
Cover the sides only the sides. Then cover only the center.
 
@Chinatsu-creepy-chan Works with a starfield too!
 
But starfields are boring.
 
1:12 AM
@Chinatsu-creepy-chan Is this the hallway in The Shining?
 
TBH IDK
Going to sleep already
G'night
Btw why 19? 19 = 2^4 + 2^2 - 2^0... but nothing too special
 
1:31 AM
random question (this chat has been quiet for too long): burritos or burgers?
 
I've never in my life had a burrito, so burger, i guess.
 
@mınxomaτ you should eat one
they are tasty
 
Usually burger but sometimes burrito.
 
burger << burrito
 
1:42 AM
Depends on the source.
If I'm going to make it, burger because it's easier.
 
@Calvin'sHobbies Burger left-bitwise-shift burrito?
 
much less than
 
@Vɪʜᴀɴ burrito
easy
I actually have an aversion to hamburgers (but not like turkey burgers). I have no idea why.
So I guess it also depends what kind of burger you are talking about.
 
Eat veggie burgers. Simple solution. :P
 
Burrito would still win
@AlexA. I like veggie burgers
Kind of depends on the type though
I primarily like quinoa-based ones
 
1:46 AM
Quick poll: What fraction of your meals are homemade? (i.e. not restaurant/microwave dinner)
 
@Calvin'sHobbies I'd say about 5/6
 
@Calvin'sHobbies 75%
 
@Vɪʜᴀɴ Same here probly
 
Actually
Terrible estimator lol
 
@quartata Want to help build ice-spleef in minecraft?
 
1:52 AM
@Calvin'sHobbies Ye I suppose
Got nothing better to do while Scream Fortress downloads
Why ice instead of snow though?
So it is slippery?
That's cool
 
@Calvin'sHobbies I'm about to join you guys
 
@quartata Ice will repair itself automatically
 
@Calvin'sHobbies college student, <5%
 
Why does this have 2 upvotes? It's not even a challenge, it's nothing.
 
2:07 AM
Someone just answered with 3 bytes... codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/62044/…
 
I would say that this is why you should wait to accept an answer, but I won't say that...
 
@Vɪʜᴀɴ BURGER!
 
@AlexA. Just did, ;_;
 
How do you do small text in markdown?
Actually nevermind
@AlexA. I'm redoing this in actual code-golf fashion

quartataCJam, 18 bytes ri_2+"spooky"\"me"

Fastest golfer in the west
 
Wow my internet is crap right now
Can't even load python docs
On a side note, why have I not downloaded those yet
 
2:34 AM
I wish the people upvoting my quine would go upvote something else
It got outgolfed people
 
Which quine?
 
The cheaty one
Anyone here know GS2?
I need to outgolf Dennis but I'm stuck at 17 bytes
 
Hahaha.
 
17 bytes in Stuck too
Dammit dammit dammit
I knew I should have posted the GS2 answer earlier
If gs2 didn't have to do read-num it would be 16 bytes
Actually if gs2 would just let me increment a char it would be 2
This is annoying.
One second
 
3:00 AM
The char? The input could be longer than one digit...
 
@quartata sleep
 
@Dennis I know I realized that
@Calvin'sHobbies ?
 
@Calvin'sHobbies how long have you been working with mc servers?
 
Oh sorry
 
3:01 AM
Wow, that chat sound is loud!
 
Since the ppcg server started
 
So since?
 
Aha! I had turned up the volume to watch Peter's video. Dammit.
 
I'll ask later, I have to go for now.
 
3:03 AM
^.^
 
Eh, I'll be on later.
 
I should have posted all my answers at once.
I won't make that mistake again @Dennis watch out I'm coming for you faster golfer in the west zzzz
 
My motto is post early, edit often.

I lied, guess who! XD
 
3:19 AM
@quartata Strangely enough, I also had 18 characters for that challenge! ;) Then I thought I might try if I could figure out GolfScript, since I had downloaded it the other day. But not surprisingly, Dennis beat me to that. Then I thought it might be simple enough to figure out in Pyth. I was very close, but couldn't find the right operator to join the strings before Maltysen posted.
 
3:30 AM
Cmon guys, I gave you trivially-golfable Python code, and nobody is going to post the Python solution?
 
18 bytes in microscript ugh
I cannot think of any languge where this is shorter than 17
Actually it would be 16 in Rotor
But it is not anywhere close to done

A: Halloween Golf: The 2spooky4me Challenge!

DennisPython, 31 bytes lambda n:"%dspooky%dme"%(n,n+2) Ask and you shall receive.

 
Hey I was about to do that
Ah well
Here lemme outgolf you in Groovy
 
First time I wrote a lambda.
 
I wonder how long this would be in ti basic
 
3:42 AM
@quartata All the content was there with 15 bytes of Pyth. Except that it had annoying newlines between the pieces of output.
 
Very. Lowercase letters are 2 bytes in TI-BASIC.
 
Oh right I forgot about that
 
@Dennis good job
 
darn I was going to do perl too
well hey got a groovy one
This is like the Halloween arms race
 
@quartata This ain't a golf, it's a spoopy arms race

I may have a problem.
 
@quartata That's a popular cry for help you got there. :P
 
@quartata It took a lot of effort to do "spooky" instead of "spoopy" in that challenge :P
 
I'm going to bed at 5 AM now, instead of golfing twenty spoopy Halloween thingies. Truly the loser's option.
 
4:01 AM
12 answers from 8 unique users, 5 upvotes. Cmon people, can't you see I'm trying to rep farm here?
 
Damn Julia outgolfed Groovy
 
@Mauris Great reply to one of my problems btw :D
 
@Mego Rep farming at night on a Saturday? Good luck...
 
@Dennis I'm planting my crop for harvest this week
 
@quartata Are you surprised? Groovy is based on Java, after all...
 
4:11 AM
I'm also not sure what you're complaining about. :P All my answers are at 0 or +1, and I posted the first 17 byte answer...
 
^ Connect to SE chat from Python
 
@Dennis I was mostly joking because I revived the challenge from a rapidly-closed awful one
 
I probably would have helped the OP of the old one revamp it into a good challenge, help them learn the ropes.
> very lowercase
 
@Dennis It's Friday!
 
Not here. :P
@AlexA. Hahaha.
 
4:27 AM
It's still Friday here, and here for me is here for everyone.
 
@AlexA. It would have invalidated existing answers
 
The question already has 2 delete votes, so those answers are going to disappear anyway...
 
Assuming 3 other delete votes come along.
 
Tempting...
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
4:28 AM
@AlexA. It only takes 3, so one more is enough.
 
@Dennis o rly
 
The number of required delete votes depends on the post's score IIRC. For 0 or less, it's definitely only three votes.
@Mego Go ahead. Do it. hovers cursor over review-ban button
:P
 
@Dennis ?
Oh
My picture duh
I wouldn't actually do that
 
I was just extending the joke...
 
I know
I was verifying that I'm not as terrible of a person as I pretend to be usually
 
4:33 AM
deletes Mego's account, suspends Dennis, freezes chat, laughs heartily

@AlexA. like a boss
 
Review history is public anyway.
 
@AlexA. Forgot the part about banning me for not knowing who the mods are.
 
You didn't? ಠ_ಠ
searches for kick-mute button
 
Nope, I didn't.
 
4:44 AM
Don't worry @AlienG, you're safe for like 3 years
 
Hell, I didn't even know how to check back then... .-.
@Mego What happens after 3 years O_O
 
@AlienG He finally finds the button
 
kick-mutes @Mego
 
Well remind me to make a new account in 3 years.
 
@Dennis Yeah right
 
4:45 AM
Dennis, me, Doorknob, Martin Büttner, and some guy named gnibbler who's never around.
 
@AlexA. I know that now...
 
Eh. suspends anyway
 
@AlienG You should also know by now that
 
@DLosc No unbalanced brackets in Pip?
 
Don't worry guys, more stupidity is sure to come :P
 
You called me slow and Martin a carrot? You're walking on thin ice. :P
 
LOL, troutknob.
 
I'm slow
 
slow loris
 
There are no penguins in the west
 
4:59 AM
Exactly
And I'm the slowest
 
I just remembered this:
Oct 24 at 20:18, by Alex A.
Slow Carrot Dennis.
There seems to be a pattern here.
