11:22 moritz_ slashdot ;)
11:23 moritz_ use.perl.org
11:23 rgs perlbuzz.com
11:23 moritz_ right
11:27 wolverian my google reader
11:28 funktio reddit
11:28 funktio my favourite
11:28 wolverian reddit's main page is useless
11:28 wolverian programming.reddit is cool
11:29 moritz_ and if you can read german, heise.de
11:29 moritz_ they have an english news ticker as well, but it sucks

17:22 trexy joined #perl6
17:22 trexy delurking for a moment to drop an idea into the meme pool ,,,
17:23 moritz_ trexy: go ahead ;)
17:23 moritz_ without activity #perl6 is quite lonely ;)
17:23 trexy did someone suggest on1 as the name for the next compiler
17:23 trexy ?
17:23 trexy "on1" that is ...
17:23 moritz_ not yet
17:24 trexy well ... I suppose I just did
17:24 trexy o(N)
17:24 trexy O(n)
17:24 moritz_ ah
17:24 trexy kind of like O notation
17:25 moritz_ but then the name should be o1, no?
17:25 trexy and we all know O(1) is pretty cool
17:25 trexy maybe ... just a thought
17:25 ebassi on+ (like ion notation)? I know I'm bad at punning
17:26 moritz_ .oO( but O(1) = O(6) ;-)
17:26 trexy yes ... just a thought
17:27 trexy on1on
17:27 moritz_ on1no ;-)
17:28 trexy symmetrical!
17:28 trexy although a bit tricky to say
17:29 moritz_ yes ;)
17:29 trexy that was the problem when Prince rebranded
17:29 trexy no one could say his name - except "the artist formally known as Prince"
17:29 trexy which was a bit of a mouthful
17:29 moritz_ exPrince ;)
17:30 moritz_ but nobody would have recognized that
17:30 trexy purple guy with big hair, white doves and guitar
17:31 moritz_ maybe we just need a completely unrelated name
17:31 trexy "distinctiveness" is the no1 feature of a brand
17:32 trexy perl6 will be a distinctive language --- and it needs a power brand to go with it
17:32 * moritz_ searches for good name in /dev/urandom
17:32 trexy ;-)
17:32 trexy just don't get 666
17:32 trexy that's taken
17:34 moritz_ maybe we should use the name of a chemical element
17:34 moritz_ or a planet
17:35 trexy just for the record I think Perl foundation should have a master brand and all major subprojects should have interlocking sub-brands
17:35 trexy planetperl
17:35 trexy with sub-planets
17:36 moritz_ trexy: recorded here: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2007-11-09#i_142119 *SCNR*
17:36 lambdabot Title: IRC log for #perl6, 2007-11-09
17:36 trexy kudos being sucked gravitationally speaking to the master brand
17:37 trexy at the moment perl's branding is leaking goodwill
17:40 trexy gotta go --- but good luck!
17:40 trexy quit

18:44 spinclad shallot
18:44 spinclad but then who would be the lady?
18:44 justatheory joined #perl6
18:47 spinclad i see some signs of 'Garlic' as a rename for On6
18:49 Torment joined #perl6
18:51 moritz_ I'm gathering supporters for that idea ;)
18:52 moritz_ anyway, I don't think anything will happen before pmichaud makes clear if he wants to use "onion" as name
18:52 spinclad i'd be happy with Garlic(k)
18:56 * spinclad &  # lunch
18:59 felipe joined #perl6
19:00 lichtkind is slurp actual perl 6?

19:01 lichtkind where is evilbot?
19:03 araujo joined #perl6
19:05 moritz_ lichtkind: use 'pugs:' or 'kp6:'
19:06 lichtkind pugs: say 'minmax'
19:06 exp_evalbot OUTPUT[minmax␤]
19:06 lichtkind ah
19:07 lichtkind pugs: say  (2,3)  minmax (2,3)
19:07 exp_evalbot OUTPUT[*** No such subroutine: "&infix:minmax"␤    at /tmp/1Vi8PXulfZ line 1, column 1 - line 2, column 1␤]

19:24 cj TreyHarris: danke.
19:25 cj TreyHarris: I haven't heard a peep out of you recently.  Did you end up working with Scott & Colin?
19:25 TreyHarris cj: no, i'm in New York now.  Working with Phil Moore at Merrill Lynch.
19:26 TreyHarris i used to work with him at Morgan Stanley before I went to Seattle.
19:27 cj TreyHarris: ah.  Well, the city misses you :)
19:27 TreyHarris :)
