Time Nick Message
00:08 samcv jnthn, getting a segfault
00:08 samcv not using any async things. just Proc
00:08 samcv and no concurrency
00:10 samcv https://gist.github.com/9f7d8820cb9e56d14abecd9aaf88b6e2
00:11 samcv it's using my Font::QueryInfo module. which just uses run
00:11 samcv crashes 100% of the time after like the exact number of seconds of runtme
00:12 eveo Proc uses async things
00:12 samcv yes
00:12 eveo buggable: eco Font::QueryInfo
00:12 buggable eveo, Font::QueryInfo 'blah blah blah': https://github.com/samcv/perl6-Font-QueryInfo
00:13 samcv but i am not using any of the perl6 concurrency features that is. no start blocks. and just run's to launch the process
00:13 samcv run the example and point it to one of your /usr/share/fonts/something folder
00:13 samcv that has a fair number of fonts in it
00:14 samcv crashes after about 3.6 seconds for me
00:14 samcv with pretty extreme accuracy. 3.6s or 3.7 seconds it segfaults
00:15 eveo like where? It keeps telling there are no fonts
00:15 eveo nm
00:15 samcv what folders do you have in /usr/share/fonts ?
00:16 samcv just pick some folder that has enough fonts for it to run long enough i guess. i picked my noto folder. but also happens in a folder of all the microsoft office fonts
00:16 eveo finishes fine after 11s
00:19 samcv 2017.04.3 works fine for me. i'm building 2017.05 to check. but i don't remember it segfaulting ever when i wrote the module a few days ago
00:34 MasterDuke joined #moarvm
00:35 samcv eveo, 2017.05 doesn't segfault
00:36 samcv hmm maybe it's i built with debug =3?
00:36 samcv rakudobrew built perl6 doesn't segfault either
00:36 samcv this is odd
00:37 samcv eveo, yep it seems rebuilding without debugging causes no segfault
00:45 eveo *phew*

20:20 brrt \o
20:20 brrt it is soo warm, warm, warm
20:22 jnthn Today was OK here, but it's about to become less OK in the next days :S
20:22 brrt well, we're ahead by a day i guess
20:33 domidumont joined #moarvm
20:34 lizmat reached 29 here today
20:34 lizmat (really ;-)
20:35 brrt well, i reached 29 in march :-P
20:36 lizmat well, in about 3 years I'll reach 40  :-)
20:37 jnthn Set for 29 tomorrow and 32 on Tuesday
20:38 jnthn As if working on spesh wasn't brain-melting enough :P
20:41 geekosaur 30 here now which is a bit higher than expected, but the next week is expected to be cooler than the last (which sounds like what you're headed into except I think it takes a bit longer to cross the pond :)
20:41 brrt yeah, mch the same here
20:47 brrt pro tip
20:47 brrt lacking an air conditioner, a fan + a plate of water will help
20:47 jnthn I have the fan but...didn't think of the plate of water
20:47 geekosaur swamp cooler!
20:47 jnthn Where should it be placed in relation to the fan for best effect? :)
20:48 lizmat fwiw, washing my hands and wetting my wrists with cold water, helps me a lot when working on a hot keyboard
20:49 brrt oh, that too
20:49 brrt ehm, i've placed mine in front
20:49 brrt it's not a huge difference like an AC would have, but still
20:53 timotimo i've heard of draping a wet towel over the cage of the fan
20:56 brrt that's possible too, it's really the same principle
20:57 brrt evaporation takes out heat from the air
20:57 brrt ice works better still
20:57 brrt because the heat of melting + the heat of evaporations is really quite substantial
20:59 timotimo i see
20:59 timotimo we do have ice cubes :)
21:00 timotimo you know these plastic bags that contain a whole bunch of little ball-shaped containers?
21:00 brrt no
21:00 timotimo and they self-seal when you fill 'em up?
21:00 brrt but, i do have a very similar thing with tube-shaped containers
21:00 timotimo ah, i've seen that kind
21:00 timotimo anyway, you can break out individual ice balls out of this
21:05 brrt uhuh
21:20 timotimo it's "cool"
21:28 jnthn Time for me to rest up a bit for the week ahead :)
21:29 jnthn 'night o/
21:30 timotimo o/
21:32 lizmat night jnthn
21:41 brrt sleep well
22:00 brrt joined #moarvm
22:01 timotimo we just had a commit that turned away str in a signature and turned it into Str to make things jit for a pretty big improvement
22:01 timotimo hopefully the new jit will allow us to jit these kinds of parameters, too
22:01 timotimo it's the boxing that's sometimes necessary that makes it hard, right?
22:03 timotimo oh, or is it the return type being a struct?
