15:30 shortcircuit Been pretty distracted these last couple weeks.
16:00 mwn3d_phone I just realized that I did something super nerdy in middle school but I didn't know how nerdy it was...
16:00 mwn3d_phone I had a chinese checkers board in my room but there was no good place to put the pieces except a sandwich bag
16:01 mwn3d_phone I was dissatisfied with that so I just left the pieces in the board
16:01 mwn3d_phone But I arranged them in a particular way
16:01 mwn3d_phone I put them in the center hexagon of the board to that no two pieces of the same color were next to each other
16:02 mwn3d_phone So I accidentally did graph coloring when I was like 12
16:03 mwn3d_phone (There were 6 colors)
16:15 opticron yeah, I remember doing that, too
16:31 mwn3d_phone Also we could probably use some graph tasks
16:32 mwn3d_phone At the very least graph creation and traversal
16:32 mwn3d_phone Sounds like classic CS problems to me
16:37 shortcircuit I think there's some mention of that in the 'suggest a task' page.
16:38 realazthat left #rosettacode
16:44 mwn3d_phone Oh yeah I should check there
17:04 shortcircuit So here's what might be an interesting problem.
17:05 shortcircuit (For thinking through, not necessarily as a task)
17:06 shortcircuit Let's say I have a key/value store, where I want to quickly find all entries which have an edit distance from $key less than N.
17:07 shortcircuit What's a good way to do that? I'd like to have the key/value store in a database. I don't relish the idea of pulling all the keys, calculating the edit distance for each, and then operating off of a locally-calculated subset.
17:07 slavik1 shortcircuit: analytical functions in db?
17:08 shortcircuit slavik1: I suppose I could put the edit distance function as a stored procedure.
17:08 shortcircuit I'm trying to build a kind of mushy markov model with a built-in tolerance for input error.
17:08 slavik1 I see
