Time Nick Message
04:37 sorear DID:
04:37 sorear - Restored .NET support by changing Mono.Posix to late binding through reflection
04:38 sorear - Added P6/CLR interop code.  Interface is still very likely to change, watched in semi-horror as TimToady added an example to RC
04:38 sorear WILL DO:
04:39 sorear - possibly grapheme ropes, but there's a LOT of yak shaving involved and I'm looking for a better approach
04:40 sorear - starting to have some better ideas about file format version checking and BEGINish issues, nothing too concrete yet
04:40 sorear BLOCKERS:
04:40 sorear - tuits mostly
04:40 sorear EOR
04:43 sorear note, my schedule seems unlikely to change much more.  good #phasers candidate times would be Fri 1900, Mon/Wed/Fri 1730 or 2230
09:38 Util joined #phasers
13:14 colomon joined #phasers
15:40 * moritz might misss tonight's #phasers
15:41 moritz fwiw from sorear++'s possible #phasers times, Mon/Wed 1730 UTC would seem probably OK for me
16:05 * cotto_work would like any of sorear's suggestions
16:30 eternaleye joined #phasers
18:25 masak joined #phasers
18:27 masak pre-report: been coding Perl 6 -- feels great. even patches nom a bit. not enough. been looking over my (still local) macros branch. not enough. blogged. not enough. plan: more of everything. blockers: everything else. $<eor>;

19:00 jnthn Over the last week...
19:00 jnthn * Cleaned up EXPORTHOW handling, and enabled nested settings
19:00 jnthn * Added a basic SAFE.setting, which others filled out
19:00 jnthn * Made my T $foo; work when T is a type variable
19:00 jnthn * Improved errors when you try and use types inappropriately (like trying to inherit from something that's not a class and doesn't know how to be like one)
19:00 jnthn * Made it possible to "inherit" from roles (actually from the pun)
19:00 jnthn * Corrected role punning; we now cache the pun
19:00 jnthn * Fixed a closure handling bug
19:00 jnthn * Filled out the holes in role type checking
19:00 jnthn * Enabled definition of multiple roles with the same shortname
19:00 jnthn * Fixed bug with parametric roles and build closures
19:00 jnthn * Got the "Glass of Beer" type syntax working again
19:00 jnthn * Implemented the "is default" trait for routines
19:00 jnthn * Fixed a proto auto-generation bug
19:00 jnthn * Fixed a bug in nextsame/nextwith

19:00 jnthn Blockers
19:00 jnthn * Having to deal with the Parrot stuff that happened over the last week, which was both distracting and demotivational :-/
19:00 jnthn Plans
19:00 jnthn * Fix lots of tests so nom can be awsomer
19:00 jnthn * Optimizer or BS or CLR backend hacking, as takes my fancy
19:00 jnthn EOR
19:03 masak o/
19:03 masak jnthn++ # Glass of Beer type syntax
19:04 jnthn o/
19:05 masak so... is there a #phasers meeting today? :)
19:05 jnthn I'm not sure. :)
19:05 jnthn I thought so but...
19:06 jnthn ...it seems kinda quiet. :)
19:06 masak jnthn: if it's just the two of us, we might's'well privmsg. :P
19:06 jnthn Yeah, then we can talk about our plan to take over the world!
19:06 jnthn er, wait, I mean...nothing.
19:07 masak right.
19:07 * PerlJam is here
19:07 PerlJam sorta
19:09 colomon o/
19:09 * Util is here, but has nothing to report.
19:10 * colomon finally dug into his $work just in time to miss the start of #phasers.  Nothing to report other than niecza trig schemings.
19:12 * jnthn guess that this will be the last #phasers in this time slot, since from here we move so sorear++ can attend
19:12 tadzik I have a one-liner again :0
19:12 tadzik :)
19:13 masak oh, and I have this to report, too. I'm now a Niecza end user. expect me to bug sorear regularly from now on ;)
19:13 PerlJam What's the new #phasers time slot?
19:13 tadzik done: passed my last exam; plan: more vacationing and some perl6; eor
19:13 masak PerlJam: you're on it.
19:14 * PerlJam is confused.
19:14 masak oh! I should've said "there is no new time slot, yet"
19:14 PerlJam sorear mentioned earlier that M/W/F are good days for him .  today is not M,W, or F
19:15 jnthn M,W are preferable for me.
19:15 tadzik I've seen no decision on the new slot
19:15 PerlJam Did someone setup a doodle?
19:16 jnthn PerlJam: not afaik
19:28 mberends joined #phasers
19:29 * mberends waves from a hotel in Dublin
19:29 colomon oooo, Dublin!
19:31 mberends can't stay long, this #phasers is encroaching on valuable drinking (and eating) time ;)
19:32 jnthn mberends: It's very quiet today :)
19:32 jnthn mberends: Feel free to report anything you have :)
19:32 mberends ok
19:32 masak yeah, this #phasers sucks :)
19:33 mberends I want to do Guinness.slurp;
19:33 PerlJam someone could propose a new day/time for #phasers
19:33 PerlJam I propose Wednesdays at 1730
19:33 PerlJam :-)
19:33 masak UTC?
19:33 TimToady maybe tomorrow's #phasers won't suck so much
19:33 PerlJam masak: of course
19:34 mberends most days/times are equally fine with me.
19:36 mberends report: did: extended sorear's HelloWorld Gtk app into a slightly fragile Calc app. plan: more Niecza Gtk experiments, such as a little plain text editor and an xclock, and more Niecza guts documentation. .EOR
19:37 colomon mberends++
19:39 mberends I'm so glad Niecza supports callbacks. There will be many uses for that, and the experience will surely help crystallize the specs.
19:40 mberends I tried to get MenuBar, Menu and MenuItem to work but failed so far. I'll redo the work in a golfed example for sorear to look at.
19:42 tadzik I'd rather have #phasers a bit later
19:42 tadzik oh wait, UTC? I never know this, are we on 19 UTC now?
19:42 mberends tadzik: yes
19:42 masak tadzik: 19:42.
19:42 tadzik hmm, ok
19:43 tadzik then even 1730 is fine for me, I suppose
19:43 PerlJam so far no veto  :)
19:44 PerlJam where's pmichaud?
19:45 jnthn 1730 would work for me too
19:47 pmichaud joined #phasers
19:47 [Coke] there is an appointment in comp.lang.parrot calendar if you want, I can update it.
19:47 pmichaud good afternoon, #phasers
19:47 PerlJam pmichaud: I proposed Wednesdays @ 1730 UTC for future #phasers so that sorear can attend.  What say you?
19:47 [Coke] (or delete it)
19:47 pmichaud 1730UTC == 1230 CDT == should be fine for me
19:50 PerlJam masak: you didn't say yea or nay for Wed @1730
19:50 masak PerlJam: yea yea. :)
19:50 * mberends neighs yea
19:51 Util Wed @1730UTC works for me, as long as it is under 1.5 hours, then conflict every week.
19:51 Util So, Yea
19:51 * mberends -> pub
19:52 PerlJam so ...  meet tomorrow @ 1730 or wait a week?
19:52 Util Wait a week
19:52 pmichaud either way works for me
19:54 PerlJam (I'm for waiting myself)
19:54 PerlJam (besides it's not like I participate often :)
19:57 * jnthn can wai
