Idiot: also, if getting frustrated with the difficulty of doing things in Emacs were a bannable offense, ain't nobody still be in this channel
generally only disrespect for humans will earn a ban here, not disrespect for software :P
Idiot
M-/ is a pleasure to use.
wgreenhouse: That's good to hear, I guess.
wasamasa
Idiot: it doesn't mean there's a need to impersonate marvin though
wgreenhouse
yes, we already have two paranoid androids
jlf
does the avy maintainer frequent #emacs?
Idiot

wasamasa
Idiot: yes
wgreenhouse
fsbot: shoot rudybot
fsbot
(Action) loads its privy council and bestows upon wgreenhouse a letter-patent.
         

wgreenhouse

(Action) rushes home to extract rents from his monopoly
Idiot
I may be paranoid, but I'm not an android.
mrmyers
That was unexpected.
Idiot
Or whatever those lyrics were.
God loves his children.
jlf
,(shoot "rudybot")
fsbot
(Action) loads its scare quotes and shoots rudybot
wgreenhouse
mrmyers: there are random favorable firearms in fsbot
wasamasa
jlf: I very much doubt that
wgreenhouse
mrmyers: so sometimes you'll shoot a person and end up bestowing a boon instead
mrmyers
backfires?
jlf
,(shoot "rudybot")
fsbot
(Action) loads its sicario and/or git client and detaches rudybot's HEAD.
wgreenhouse

jlf

fsbot
(Action) loads its blunderbuss and hits everything but fsbot
jlf
i are a h4x0r!!!
wgreenhouse
jlf: you circumvented its self-defense mechanism! :O
Idiot
,(shoot "himself")
fsbot
(Action) loads its IED packed with cutlery and fork bombs himself
mrmyers
,(shoot "is it possible to use something with spaces, and possibly other punctuation?")
         

fsbot
(Action) loads its droning professor and destroys is it possible to use something with spaces, and possibly other punctuation?'s will to live.
jlf

fsbot
whoops, Symbol's function definition is void: fs-obliterate
jlf
wat
,obliterate fsbot
fsbot
(Action) loads its gatling gun, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and dual, and guns down jlf, reduces jlf to a four-letter type, as well as coshoots cojlf.
jlf
fsbot: you missed!
fsbot
(Action) is broken, just like any bot
Idiot

Idiot
Yay.
jlf
(Action) e that decimation firearm
bremner
lose 10% of your body mass in one easy step?
wasamasa
Idiot: in case you were expecting emacs to come with autocompletion popups suggesting semantically relevant candidates that work for every single programming language out of the box, then I've got bad news for you
Idiot: that kind of thing exists in IDEs only and even there only for the specific languages they support which more often than not is just one
jlf
but emacs _is_ an IDE...
rm-r
but not only
;d
but autocompletion works well what im remember
but im not using
for me emacs is great IDE
depens on what who need
jlf
emacs is an ide that has been integrating for 30 years and counting
wasamasa
no, it's not
it's the substrate for RMS' email client
we're all pretty silly for using it and bemoaning the defaults
turing
IDE kind of implies that it's for one language IMO
wasamasa
back to your grave
jlf
turing: how so?
turing
they have irc in the after life
jlf
better develop a plausible argument lest you fail my turing test
turing
jlf: It seems like a chicken/egg thing to me. You create an IDE because you have a language that needs one.
jlf
says who?
turing
not that you couldn't make a multi-language IDE, it's just not what springs to mind.
Says me.
jlf
well, you're the expert on what springs to your mind.. but you claimed that IDE implies a single language
Idiot
I'm trying to learn C++ properly, but keep forgetting important crap like constructors, destructors and such.
wasamasa
good luck
the inventor of C++ rated himself 7/10 at it :D
jlf
...and he stored the result in an int
Idiot
But he should have used a short instead?
jlf
...
Idiot
I don't know, really.
jlf
,jlfs-law
fsbot
I heard jlfs-law is sufficiently advanced ignorance is indistinguishable from trolling.
Fuco
sigh, why is it 'au Canada' but 'en France'...
offby1
it's neither!
It's "In Canada" and "In France".
also, "oeuf" means "egg"
Mon_Ouie
Because it's "Le Canada" but "La France" (which is equally arbitrary, I know)
Fuco
so if it were La Canada it would be 'en Canada'?
Mon_Ouie
As far as I know, when thinking about how it works for other countries (e.g. le Pakistan -> au Pakistan)
jlf
if you want regularity in a natural language you'd be better off with something like japanese
Fuco
jlf: if it works by gender then it is regular
in my own language it works by some obscure phonetic rule nobody has yet described properly...
jlf
how is arbitrarily thinking of one country as boy-like and another country as girl-like "regular"?
Fuco
that's not at all how grammatical gender works
jlf
countries hate to be anthropomorphized!
Fuco
also, the assignment of preposition is regular wrt gender assignment, it doesn't matter how arbitrary that is
jlf
so once one accepts the fundamental irrationality it all, the rest makes perfect sense?
doomlord
why did people assign genders to things
jlf
s/it all/of it all/
