Til i get upvotes when i fgitw dennis with jelly or lynn with vim
 
@HelkaHomba I have no idea. I used to try and predict how many votes my challenges would get, but I got 46 on a challenge I thought would get maybe 21, and 21 on a challenge I thought would get to 35
 
@LuisMendo Oh, that makes sense
 
@Adnan That URL does include the id, which is permanent, unlike the name. But then so does my previous link. What a mess
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ A septuple pendulum or something similar?
 
A no, it is not a pendulum, it is just a visualization of a fourier series.
 
okay (googled)
 
# This is syntactically valid, but may make you unpopular

array.[]=(0, 'zero') # => "zero"
 
10:09 PM
explain
 
accesses property []= of array and calls it with 0, 'zero'
 
@El'endiaStarman Nice link!
Funny (to a Spaniard) how he pronounces "hablo" :-)
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Epicycles of circles can draw any shape. (Though they are still cool.) Ptolemy famously, erringly used them to model planet movement.
 
@HelkaHomba Has anyone ever used anything to non-erringly model planet movement? :D

Q: Compute the Fibonomial Coefficient

milesBackground The Fibonacci sequence is defined as f(1) = 1 f(2) = 1 f(n) = f(n-1) + f(n-2) The Fibonorial, similar to the factorial, is the product of the first n Fibonacci numbers. g(n) = f(1) * f(2) * ... * f(n-1) * f(n) The Fibonomial coefficient, similar to the binomial coefficient is de...

Q: A Fractional Year

βετѧ ΛєҫαγMy PPCG holiday is over :D Intro Fractional time is the year (2016) plus the value (minute of year) / number of minutes in the year. Example calculation Let's say we want to convert the time: 17:34 3rd March 2013 to fractional time. Firstly, you find how many minutes were in 2013: 525600 minu...

@flawr Kepler's laws are good models. I mean with Ptolemy, any motion could be explained away
 
10:24 PM
@Dennis Only bitcoins? :-(
 
@LuisMendo Let's make ... bytecoins.
 
@LuisMendo Currently reviewing other options. I wanted to add PayPal, but that requires documents I do not have.
 
@flawr and then let's donate nineteen of them. :P
 
@Dennis Would it be difficult to simply use a credit card?
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan no no no we can only donate 18 we wouldn't want to loose our chat room :P
 
10:29 PM
@NewMainPosts that's a lot of messages
 
@Dennis Can you please pull 05AB1E?
 
I need to make a language called pull :p
 
"Could you please pull pull"
 
Hahahaha
 
10:30 PM
@HelkaHomba xD
 
@HelkaHomba question: does this link go to gif/image?
 
@HelkaHomba haha my skin isn't on that website. probably because I haven't upgraded to a mojang account
@Downgoat no, but it contains one
or something similar
 
@ConorO'Brien could you please pull²?
 
@ConorO'Brien Or "my finger".
 
@Adnan Pulled.
 
10:31 PM
@HelkaHomba or my leg :P
 
Thanks :)
 
@LuisMendo Directly is a no go for low volume. Currently investigating Skrill and Flattr.
 
@HelkaHomba mine is not there. :(
 
@ConorO'Brien s/pull/GitHub/
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan That would already be quite a lot, right??
 
10:33 PM
@ASCII-only who are you again? :/
 
@ConorO'Brien is obviously a sock of Conor
@ConorO'Brien Look at network profile
 
@ConorO'Brien It's Mars I think
 
it is. ._.
 
@Doorknob I don't know if you saw this but github.com/redox-os/redox
 
10:35 PM
woah
that's a lotta stars
 
wat
pure rust?
 
and asm probably
 
how does one use it
 
majik is answer to both
 
how did they make an entire os
 
10:37 PM
@ASCII-only Well, obviously there's some assembly
@ASCII-only Rust does compile to machine code you know...
And it can be built free-standing and still have most of the cool stuff I think
 
@quartata I mean, it's not exactly easy to make an entirely new OS
 
Sure, but I'm saying it's not that weird.
Actually I think making an OS in Rust would be less painful than in C if you designed it correctly.
 
I know, but it's just that I haven't seen very many complete OSes designed in languages other than C
I mean, there's one in asm, some unfinished ones in [.NET](github.com/mosa/MOSA-Project/wiki), and that's about all I've seen.
 
Actually a lot of old kernels are in assembly :P

NonlinearFruit100 Day Countdown It is common to start countdowns 100 days prior to an event, probably because of our base 10 system. Examples of this can be found everywhere: 100 days until your birthday 100 days until the wedding 100 days until the election 100 days until our graduation 100 days until her ...

@quartata but not very many new ones
 
my code has no sympathy or morals

@NewSandboxedPosts is that base 9+1 or base Z+1 or something else?
 
@ConorO'Brien .____________.
 
@flawr that would be about 11,050 US dollars. So yes, that would be an insane amount.
 
@Dennis Maybe you should add PayPal sometime?
 
10:51 PM
That's not possible for me.
 
@Dennis Why not?
 
24 mins ago, by Dennis
@LuisMendo Currently reviewing other options. I wanted to add PayPal, but that requires documents I do not have.
 
Oh
 
@Downgoat oh
 
Try forging them
 
10:52 PM
That's always a good idea for things that involve money. >_>

But what kind of documents do you need for that? I think I was able to register without anything except a physical and e-mail adress.
 
You need a business account for donations.
 
Frank William Abagnale, Jr. (/ˈæbəɡneɪl/; born April 27, 1948) is an American security consultant known for his history as a former confidence trickster, check forger, and impostor between the ages of 15 and 21. He became one of the most famous impostors ever, claiming to have assumed no fewer than eight identities, including an airline pilot, a physician, a U.S. Bureau of Prisons agent, and a lawyer. He escaped from police custody twice (once from a taxiing airliner and once from a U.S. federal penitentiary), before he was 21 years old. He served less than five years in prison before starting...
 
@Dennis How about regular transactions?

@ASCII-only I thought you can send anyone money via paypal?
 
Richest answerer wins.

@flawr Eh, sure. If I just include my email address on the website, people could send me money from PayPal directly. That would work.
 
10:55 PM
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan you get my last star
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ "last"?
 
Maybe you could pay for an account where your programs are stored together
 
So that's why somebody unstarred my post. That hurts, you know?
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan for another 1h 5 min i'm out of stars
@Dennis i am deeply sorry
now wait 1h 5min
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ what's the rate?
 
10:56 PM
20 per day
resets at 00:00 UTC, so 1h 5min
 
I did some math just out of curiosity and apparently 100 RPis mining for bitcoins would make me 2 cents a day. Amazing
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ He actually makes cool stuff.
 
@Dennis btw, if/when you get enough to upgrade plan, maybe it's a good idea to use the extra space to cache results, at least until a language is updated
 
10:57 PM
@Rickrollers: Why don't you search for other songs from now on? A bit of variety never hurt.
 
@quartata explain to me "bitcoin mining"
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I am truly and deeply honored to have earned your last star. I will treat it with honor and respect.
 
@ASCII-only I'm planning to enable cached results with server-side permalinks, like Ideone does.
 
10:59 PM
@Dennis oh ok, that probably works a lot better
 
@Dennis is œs splitting x into y chunks of similar length y or splitting x into y chunks of similar length?
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ There's an equivalent speed dedicated miner that's 1/5th the price too
 
@miles y chunks. s splits into chunks of length y.
For a square, they do the same.
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ nice try
 
11:00 PM
it's not a rickroll
 
@Downgoat ?
^^
 
1 min ago, by Eᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏ Iʀᴋ
http://bit.ly/ppcgofficialsoundtrack
 
can confirm
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ uh huh sure
 
11:00 PM
i'm not that mean
@Downgoat I promise on my small caps it's not a rickroll.
 
It's Rick Astley - Angels on my Side.
So only slightly better
 
(And no I didn't click on it)
 
@Dennis yes they're equivalent, thanks. I think you had a typo then on your wiki for œs
 
11:01 PM
@quartata technically still a rickroll because it's rick astley
 
Was trying to hammer out a "We're going to enable -Wall and make ________ pay for it" joke but I just couldn't get there
 
@miles That sounds like something I would do, yeah.
 
Bitcoins are really weird but pretty interesting
 
11:02 PM
@quartata The blockchain is pretty interesting
 
@Quill Yeah, I agree. That's the most interesting part
@TùxCräftîñg Linux has 35k.
 
i got 8 clicks on the link at least
 
I haven't memorized most of your atoms so I have to scroll thru each time to recall if there was an operation
 
@TùxCräftîñg cheddar has 20
 
11:04 PM
@Downgoat wow
 
Well with 7 $6000 miners I can make minimum wage
 
Ikr
 
seems dece
 
do we have a range challenge? (not going to make one if not existent, just wondering)
 
@quartata why not write virus that uses host computer for bitcoin mining
 
11:05 PM
@Downgoat esea already tried that one. Didn't work out too well
 
That's why you just repurpose the company servers
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Yeah, that joke might have gone over your head...
 
the clippy reference?

11:08 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ theverge.com/2013/5/2/4292672/…
 
There was a torrent for WatchDogs (I think), when it came out that took like double the normal time because it had some weird bitcoin miner set up that everyone was running by downloading the torrent
 
... that's why i replied to your message
 
A service I've been using for years just decided to change the display language based on my IP, even though I've selected English as preferred language both in my profile and my web browser. Great!

@Adnan Is there a square-root function in 05AB1E?

@quartata After the bitcoin halving, mining has been very unprofitable
^^
 
Thanks!!
 
Hello
 
11:15 PM
Any opinions on this? :3
Or is it ready to post
 
@Adnan Maybe now is a good time to invest in Dogecoin
 
I have mined some Dogecoin a few years ago :p
I got ~10 now
 
@Adnan I think it looks cool, but I don't know .~. I'm no expert
 
which is about €0.002
@DestructibleWatermelon Thanks :)
 
@Adnan so what happens if i write an arbitrarily long original one and an almost impossibly short golfed one?
 
11:18 PM
@ASCII-only It just needs to be golfed off 1 byte in order to be cracked
I might need to specify that a bit more
 
but then what's the chance it won't get cracked? :(
 
If it's long and easy to golf off, the chance would be very small
If it's already golfed a lot and needs some thought to golf off another byte, the chance of it being cracked is a lot smaller.
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan What did your username used to be?
 
@βετѧΛєҫαγ DJMayhem?
 
@Adnan But if someone good at golfing just does their own solution, they'll probably have an 100% chance of golfing a short solution
 
11:25 PM
@ASCII-only What do you mean?
 
@LuisMendo Ohh
 
@Adnan If someone good at golfing does a solution from scratch, it's almost certain it's shorter than your Cops post
 
@ASCII-only Yeah, which is why you need to think good about the cop submission
Normally, in CnR, it is easy for the cops but a lot harder for the robbers
and I wanted to prevent that a bit
As well as the cryptography problem
 
@daHugLenny @LuisMendo did you realize that you both have the same solution on the square text challenge?
 
it's a fun idea, and since I missed the last few cnr challenges I'm looking forward to this 1
 
11:29 PM
CnR's seem to be very rare, which is very unfortunate :(
 
@GamrCorps My solution before daHugLenny's had 6 bytes. It was Adnan who suggested the « function to me. Should I revert my edit?
 
I think using verbose languages as a cop would be fun
 
Dogecoin would do slightly better it looks like ($.16/day). However it doesn't look like it would ever be profitable given the $500 investment :P

Famous scientist polls:
favorite - http://www.strawpoll.me/10925229
best name - http://www.strawpoll.me/10925231
 
@quartata Yeah, the reward is very low
 
It's because they're single core I suspect
My laptop can do better than a cluster of them :P
 
the featured strawpoll of the day... strawpoll.me/10923859
 
11:38 PM
There are specific miners for that
 
really wat
 
which can do a few billion hashes per second iirc

that was easy
Although I think Tesla's got him beat in the name department
 
@TùxCräftîñg What? It's a contentious current social issue (in the US at least).
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
11:40 PM
@βετѧΛєҫαγ @LuisMendo Close, but not quite. ;D It was DJMcMayhem
 
"Yes, but I wouldn't be if I were female".
 
Still is, on other sites.
 
@quartata Tesla? meh. "Galileo Galilei" has real poetic charisma behind it.
And "Nikola" reminds me too much of Ricola :|
 
ಠ________ಠ
 
@HelkaHomba Galileo is pretty cool too.
 
Well since D isn't on that list I'm going with Objective-C
 
oh i have forget D >_>

Dr Green Eggs and Iron ManVim, 59 bytes/keystrokes :%s/./&\r/g dd:let @q=float2nr(sqrt(line('.')))."gJ@q" gg@q This is almost definitely one of the longest vim answers I have ever posted.

 
(inb4 literally only objective c vote)
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan Saw it already, forgot to upvote. vereh nice
 
@TùxCräftîñg Y no D♭?
 
11:52 PM
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan C# isn't technically compiled
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan C# is compiled to bytecode
 
@quartata Hahaha, yeah right. It's almost 10 times longer than the shortest answer.
That's what I love about vimgolf. It's very competitive, but only some of the time.
 
Well, I mean it's Vim.
Plus you had to do squareroot
 
and frickin float2nr. Come on!
 
@GamrCorps I have rolled back. The other answer, although almost identical to mine, was earlier
 
11:54 PM
It's almost as bad as java.
 
@HelkaHomba I don't know, but the real travesty is that @trichoplax hasn't even answered it yet.
 
\\\ooo///
 
@DrGreenEggsandIronMan Congrats :)
