The interpreter says 502 Bad Gateway – nginx/1.13.3

@LuisMendo ha, I noticed that bug too. But then I wrote something like i:z and figured that was pretty stupid to do either way. But I suppose there are indeed cases where it would matter.
Of course, I should've mentioned it, because I'm sure there's a silver badge for "discover ten bugs in a single golfing language"
And life is all about fake internet points. Once the bitcoin finally collapses, I think SE points will become legal currency.
 
@LuisMendo You should propose MATL for Language of the Month
3
It's a great language that unfortunately not very many people know, so I think it would be an excellent candidate

@DJMcMayhem Thanks :-) I'm not really sure... People without knowledge about MATLAB/Octave may find MATL hard. But then, you learned it without having used either of those. I'll give it a thought! Thanks for the idea. And of course if someone else wants to propose it, go ahead and I can help writing the proposal.
@Sanchises There should be one, anyway :-)
@Mr.Xcoder Suever seems not to be pingable here or in the MATLAB room. Let's hope he eventually drops by!
 
10:23 PM
@LuisMendo I can super ping him
@Suever Hey, your online interpreter is not running correctly right now. (See errors above)
 
This gives DJ the opportunity to practice his new mod powers :-)
 
Yep lol
@LuisMendo I had a fine time learning it, even with 0 Matlab/Octave knowledge. I think the auto vectorization and matrices make it really interesting
 
@LuisMendo We could have an Octave month first... Although I think MATL should be comprehensible to most programmers. It's only real peculiarities are the non-ragged arrays and by extension cell arrays.
Oh, and the indexing maybe, but that should be easy enough.
 
I don’t think Octave would be a particularly interesting candidate. But MATL has my full support
 
10:40 PM
@DJMcMayhem Hah, thanks. I forgot about your super-powers!
Thanks for your nice comments all :-)
Ok, so does anyone want to propose it for language of the month? I'm not particularly interested in doing it myself (read: lazy) :-P
(But of course I can eventually do it if you are all as lazy as I am)
 
11:03 PM
If nobody proposes it till tomorrow morning, I volunteer.
 
Thanks! I can be of help if you need to ellaborate some point. What DJ said about vectorization (and broadcast) is probably one of the most salient points. Things like this or this (Not sure if the proposal needs to be that specific, though)
 
@LuisMendo :O I didn't even know you could do that
 
Wow that’s a great feature :O I wish Jelly had that
 
11:29 PM
@DJMcMayhem I'm pretty sure you've used that more than once :-)
 
I don't remember doing it that way
 
How about implementing that in V? :-P
 
@LuisMendo V doesn't even adding... :P
 
Speaking of which... how about proposing that language too? I read the tutorial and I liked the language, but there's surely much more to learn
 
@LuisMendo I thought about that... I'm not opposed to it, but it's highly unintuitive and not user friendly, so I'm not sure how well that would work
 
11:38 PM
(I know it doesn't do adding. Not that I know much more than that)
Well, esolangs, you know... :-)
Intuitiveness and user-friendliness are not a requirement
 
Imo “Language of the month” is great eay to incentivize people to use languages they haven’t considered before
 
Intuitiveness isn't a huge importance, but user friendliness is more important
There are some things about the interpreter that kinda suck TBH
 
I think V would be a good nominee too, but the fact that it can only participate in a narrow set of challenges is quite disappointing :(
