rudybot: Make a joke involving Oliver Cromwell
rudybot
jordanb: I think the same can be said of any public communications medium involving C++
jordanb
rudybot: Cromwell
rudybot
jordanb: eh? Try "rudybot: help".

rudybot: Fuck you

jordanb: i suggest there's stuff on emacswiki you haven't tried yet.

I'm surprised I didn't add a special "bamboozle jordanb" module
jordanb
How woudl it be different than what you hav?
offby1
it'd notice if it's _you_ specifically talking, and go out of its way to be maddening, insulting, etc
         

jordanb
It might be hard to find a snippet of that online.
offby1
that's all that's prevented me
wow, http://snippets.snippets.org/index.php sure looks ... lame
jordanb
It's hard to write a website in 1997 depending entirely on snippets
offby1
you seem obsessed with this "snippet" concept. I infer that you were, at some point, grievously abused by a snippet.
Or even a whole pack of them.
bremner
oh, I saw that episode of Nurse Jaquie where some dude was bathing his cat naked.
jordanb
pretty sure cats prefer nakedness
Every cat I've seen with clothes on is either in the processes of removing them or is resigned but annoyed.
offby1
:)
TeXnomancy
hardly conclusive; I think "resigned but annoyed" is the default state for cats.
offby1
TeXnomancy: DAMN YOU I WAS TRYING TO SAY THAT
jordanb
I'ts alwya seemed to me that 'asleep' is the default state of a cat.
bremner
not when being bathed.
if so, your cat is dead.
jordanb
heh

Let's put a capital letter and a period on every IRC line, even when they're sentence fragments.

Sure.
jordanb
The joke's on Rudybot.
What he said there is a complete sentence.
I wonder what the shortest possible complete sentence is.
isomer
hm?
jordanb
I guess a lot of pepole would consider "Ok?" to be a complete sentence.
offby1
Duh.
jlf`
No.
bremner
I.
jordanb
"No." is clearly not one, but "Ok?" being a question, can carry an understood 'you' and 'is'.
"[Are you] ok?"
technomancy
"Be."

"Do you ___?" "No. [, I don't]"

"Do you like Kipling?" "I don't know; I've never Kippled"

I think you mean "weasel"
bremner
oh, wait. That's a lawyer. I always get those mixed up.

yea, get a cat, lawyers are much more work, and they eat more too

They don't shed, though.

That includines writing the c-declares (in gambit's case), compiling the static objects, and then finally (and most importantly) interacting with them from the repl?

hi folks
quotemstr
(Action) is rather besotted with Lisp.
disturb
I'm trying to use a symbol inside a form in org-capture-templates, but it expects a string, and I don't know how to get at the string from the symbol
config snippet is at : http://pastebin.com/HwhCQyAt
the symbol is organizer, and the capture template errors with Wrong type argument: stringp, organizer
quotemstr
,df symbol-name
fsbot
symbol-name is a built-in function in `C source code'.
(symbol-name SYMBOL)
Return SYMBOL's name, a string.
greboides
disturb: use a string all the way?
chrisb

I like it how using a stack to implement recursion is an "advanced" topic in SICP
Since Sipser is a real CS book, he started by talking about autonoma, then observed that push down autonoma were more powerful, then observed that push down autonoma could match context free langauges, which are recursive in nature.
And he did that all in like chapter two.
OTOH, no obsessive boasting about lisp.
If you're a lisperatarian who wants your worldview validated, there's nothing better than reading SICP and classical economists.
pjb
jordanb: when I started to program "professionnaly", in 1983, I worked on a machine that had no stack. (It was like Knuth MIX). Indeed, stack and recursion are "advanced"! :-)
jordanb
knuth covered recursion fairly early in book one of TAOCP too
and his example also was kinda along the lines of "now imagine if we were to add a stack to this automation!"
