21:05 brrt so, no gsoc work for me this year..
21:05 jnthn No :(
21:05 jnthn I wonder if we can find some other way to get you funded to work on JIT stuff.
21:05 brrt shame
21:06 jnthn (Short answer: almost certainly.)
21:06 brrt :-)
21:06 brrt well, that would still be nice
21:06 brrt off-topic
21:06 brrt i notice an increase in geospatial projects
21:07 brrt i have a feeling geospatial software / gis is going to be a fast-growing sector the next few years
21:12 brrt fwiw, i can change all references to the work special register to REGISTER with runtime changes, and... i'm 50/50 on whether that's clearer or not
21:16 jnthn brrt: Are you very much invovled with gis stuff?
21:16 brrt not at all, although some of my fellow students are
21:17 brrt and a few of my former colleagues
21:17 brrt i just see GIS organisations and companies springing up everywhere :-)
21:41 brrt very very offtopic, you know what is hilarious? people suggesting a smart watch can measure blood pressure
21:42 jnthn .oO( The very idea people could think this raises my blood pressure. My watch just...oh! )
21:42 lizmat fwiw, previous models of iPhone were pretty good at measuring heartbeats
21:42 lizmat how you ask?
21:42 jnthn brrt: Do you mean "at all" or "accurately"?
21:43 jnthn lizmat: Some image analysis on the skin, or eyes, or soemthing? :)
21:43 brrt i'd be very hard pressed to find a way to measure blood pressure without significant discomfort to a wearer
21:43 brrt heartbeats are not the same as pressure. heartbeats can be measured by coloration patterns
21:43 lizmat jnthn: you had to put your iPhone on your finger
21:43 jnthn Oh :)
21:44 lizmat it would switch on the flash, and the camera :-)
21:45 brrt and yes, i implied accurately, or 'usefully' :-)
22:28 agentzh joined #moarvm

22:47 timotimo after thinking about it a little bit more, i'm now seeing that i will in fact have to put some stuff into the MVMIOOps, even if not new things
22:47 timotimo even if it's just because i have a different struct for the MVMOSHandle's data attribute
22:48 timotimo jnthn: how do you feel about a "datagramy" entry to the ops table?
22:51 kjs_ joined #moarvm
22:51 jnthn Like how one rock star asked another, "is datagrammy?"
22:52 jnthn Sounds reasonable overall
23:09 timotimo heh heh
23:16 timotimo it's a bit weird that "datagramy" is actually 100% correlated with "connectionless"
23:16 timotimo (SCTP doesn't exist "in the real world")
23:17 timotimo and the connectionlessness has a big influence on the API that the datagramy methods would have to expose
23:28 timotimo i don't think i'm really making progress
23:28 timotimo i seem to have built the ops for udp sockets based on the assumption that there'll be a specific repr or way to tell a udp socket from a non-udp socket or something
23:28 timotimo the nqp::ops, that is;
23:29 timotimo i only just now realized i'll hav eto enhance the MVMIOOps structure
23:30 timotimo and then there'll be another bit of "interestingness" for sync vs async
23:59 [Coke] I need to explicitly list all the licenses of software distributed by MoarVM. Anyone care to help me update the list?
