00:39 rjbs If anybody wants to give a hint as to why rjbs's homework is timing out on the grading server, he would add a beer to the appropriate debt column.
00:56 jhannah rjbs: you'd probably get more sympathy in Freenode #progfun
00:59 rjbs I DONT WANT SYMPATHY I WANT SERVICE
00:59 * rjbs will check it out.
00:59 rjbs JERK
01:07 rjbs So what's new in Moe?
01:50 stevan rjbs: we have Test::More
01:51 stevan rjbs: https://github.com/MoeOrganization/moe/bl​ob/master/lib/Test-More/lib/Test/More.mo
01:51 rjbs ooh, sixy
01:52 rjbs has $!output = ^Test::TAP.new;
01:52 rjbs What's the carat for?
01:52 rjbs caret
01:53 stevan couldn't get the parser to handle barewords right
01:53 rjbs carat, caret, carrot, karat
01:53 stevan the parser needs a lot of help
01:53 stevan so basically, I created a "class" sigil
01:53 stevan it will go away once the parser is rewritten
01:53 rjbs cool
01:53 rjbs ^ and not ¢ ??
01:54 rjbs stevan: Oh, hey, I went to Victory yesterday.
01:54 rjbs stevan: downingtowndish.com/snips/2013/04/victory-brewin​g-company-collaborates-with-market-garden-brewer​y-to-bring-near-extinct-beer-style-back-to-life/
01:55 stevan mmm, looks good
01:55 rjbs It was quite good.
01:55 rjbs I got my growler filled with Abbey IPA, which was excellent.
01:55 stevan ^ has precedence in Perl 6 :)
01:56 rjbs so does ¢ :)

01:56 rjbs oops
01:56 * stevan is not even sure where that is on his keyboard :)
01:56 rjbs https://groups.google.com/fo​rum/?fromgroups=#!topic/perl.perl6.language/8Cbhgaalmaw%5B1-25-false%5D
01:58 stevan *sigh* Perl 6 can be so weird!
01:58 rjbs yeah!
01:58 * rjbs goes back to Scala!
01:58 stevan haha

08:43 masak heh -- do not base your impression on Perl 6 on 8-year-old p6l threads! :P
08:43 masak when p6l was the most active, it was basically inventing Perl 6 three or four times before breakfast every day.
08:43 masak not many of those variants were pretty, or practical.
10:27 tobyink joined #moe
10:59 moritz ... which is pretty much the reason that p6l has been mostly abandoned
11:00 masak oh, I don't see it that way, exactly.
11:00 masak more like, the phase of Perl 6's development where p6l had any significance has now passed.
11:00 mst and here was me thinking the reason was dduncan
11:01 masak dduncan was maybe the flag-bearer of pie-in-the-sky abstractionism.
11:01 masak him and TSa.
11:01 masak there was a transition period where moritz and I went into p6l and told them "dudes, you're aware that the things you're discussing *can be tested in Rakudo*? just download it!"
11:02 masak like, several times.
11:03 masak there's even a TimToady email somewhere where he says, with little subtlety, "it's OK to be pie-in-the-sky here on p6l, as long as you recognize that that's what it is".
11:03 moritz maybe we should have a perl6-freezers mailing lists
11:03 masak with people shivering in a meat locker?
11:03 moritz where we discuss changes that are intended to get Perl 6 closer to a frozen/released version
11:03 masak ooh
11:04 moritz maybe we should shift that discussion back into #perl6
11:04 masak aye.
11:05 mst left #moe
11:57 rjbs masak: I only brought up the ¢ thing for a laugh, I don't think it's demonstrative of what P6 is like ;)
12:00 masak heh. :)
