00:23 kingxerxes Hypftier: xD hi :D
00:24 kingxerxes Hypftier: what's up?
00:38 mikemol kingxerxes: ceil()
00:38 kingxerxes ceil() ?
00:38 kingxerxes mikemol: what is that ?
00:38 mikemol kingxerxes: A pun.
00:39 kingxerxes mikemol: explain better :D
00:40 mikemol kingxerxes: ceil() takes a value and rounds it up to the first integer value.
00:40 mikemol It's named for 'ceiling'
00:40 mikemol kingxerxes: When you ask what's up, and I look up, I see a ceiling. :)
00:41 mbishop in pascal/delphi, it's probably CEILING
00:41 mikemol Yeah, I know, I floor()'d you with that joke, didn't I?
00:41 kingxerxes =D
00:41 kingxerxes i'm a pascal programmer
00:41 kingxerxes and u ?
00:41 kingxerxes Ruby i guess :]
00:41 mikemol kingxerxes: Primarily C++ and PHP.
00:41 kingxerxes ohhh
00:42 kingxerxes a hard-coder :S
00:42 kingxerxes i fear u
00:42 kingxerxes ..
00:42 kingxerxes please don't ..
00:43 * mikemol summons the demon of Raii, and calls forth Data from a lower stack frame.
00:43 kingxerxes waaaaaaaaah :(
00:43 kingxerxes mikemol: so what kind of things u make ?
00:44 mikemol kingxerxes: In C++, I primarily work on Windows apps and libraries for custom applications involved with industrial safety, automation and process controls.
00:45 kingxerxes windows ?
00:45 kingxerxes why win ?
00:45 mikemol In PHP, I've poked at MW extensions, but the stuff I've spent the most time on are more tightly covered by NDA.
00:45 kingxerxes u use win API ?
00:45 mikemol kingxerxes: Because that's what I'm payed to code for. :)
00:45 mikemol *paid
00:45 kingxerxes ahh
00:45 kingxerxes it's ur job :D
00:45 mikemol I'm one of those lucky few who get to code for fun and for profit.
00:45 kingxerxes :D
00:46 kingxerxes the joy of working xD
00:46 mikemol I didn't say the two took place at the same time. ;)
00:50 kingxerxes mikemol: so u code other things for fun
00:51 kingxerxes any link of one of your *funny* projects ?
00:51 mikemol kingxerxes: rosettacode.org
00:51 mikemol :P
00:51 fedaykin "Rosetta Code - Rosetta Code"
00:51 mikemol There's a triangulate algorithm/program I wrote for my brother. Don't recall the URL off the top of my head. It's on Google Code somewhere.
00:52 kingxerxes and .. ?
00:52 mikemol I wrote a program called Citygen to teach myself Perl, and as an implementation of 3rd-edition D&D's demographic mechanics.
00:53 mikemol I hacked on an IRC bot named chorttoob for a while. I implemented an idea I had for using multiple 1st-order markov chains to gain higher order behavior on the level with 2nd-order or 3rd-order markov chains.
00:53 mikemol That's on hold for now, as Unicode is frustrating in Python 2.x, and Python 3.x doesn't have a mysql module yet. And I'd otherwise have to reimplement the whole thing in another language.
00:54 mikemol I've got twenty or thirty scripts in my ~/bin folder that I've written over the past decade and a half, for various reasons.
00:54 mikemol I once wrote a script to calculate some kind of equivalence between energy weapons and ballistic weapons, for personal amusement.
00:55 mikemol I can't remember any others off the top of my head.
01:00 kingxerxes mikemol: :O
01:00 kingxerxes how old are you ?
01:01 kingxerxes if u don't mind :d
01:01 kingxerxes =D
01:01 mikemol kingxerxes: 27. I'll be 28 in a couple days.
01:01 kingxerxes woha :D
01:01 kingxerxes happy birth day =D maybe we won't meet in your birthday xD
01:02 kingxerxes mikemol:  ^^
01:02 mikemol Thank you. :)

01:03 sorear it's hard to suddenly not be the youngest person in all my online communities
01:05 TimToady if that's the worst thing that ever happens to you, count yourself fortunate beyond measure :)
01:15 mikemol TimToady: He's young. There's still plenty of opportunity. :)
01:30 kingxerxes mikemol: :D

17:37 mikemol [[Break OO privacy]] is kinda fun.
17:37 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Break_OO_privacy
17:37 mikemol I don't get *asked* to break anything very often.
17:41 kpreid did it get clarified? ah, it did.
18:04 mikemol kpreid: I modified it to what I think was the intent. Haven't heard back form Paddy, though.
18:04 mikemol *from
19:13 MigoMipo joined #rosettacode
19:15 kingxerxes joined #rosettacode
20:12 mikemol Ugh. Too much PHP lately. I keep typing $this-> into my C++ code.
21:05 mwn3d_phone Reminds me of a story one of my spanish teachers told us. She was in spain on a trip with people from her school and they'd speak english at meals together but they started using spanish structure in english. They said things like "the truck red" instead of "the red truck".
21:06 mwn3d_phone It took them a while to realize it too.
21:06 mwn3d_phone I guess they were lenient english compilers.
21:29 Hypftier After returning from St. Petersburg back to Germany pretty much the first thing I read outside of the airport was a sign for a pharmacy. And I wondered what "arotnekye" would actually mean o.O
