14:48 bearophile Hello
14:48 bearophile Regarding this:  http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Sorting_algorithms/Radix_sort#More_Efficient_Version
14:48 fedaykin "Sorting algorithms/Radix sort - Rosetta Code" http://rldn.net/CUW
14:48 mikemol lo
14:49 mikemol bearophile: Recommendation: Stick around and lurk. :)
14:49 bearophile Most (or all) the entries of Radix sort are a bit... too much high level?
14:49 bearophile So now there a proper radix sort
14:49 bearophile It comes from here:  http://www.cubic.org/docs/download/radix_ar_2011.cpp
14:49 fedaykin http://rldn.net/BFl
14:50 bearophile "unknown license"
14:50 mikemol Be careful about sourcing from other locations. In particular, need to be careful about copyright.
14:50 mikemol Is that where the C++ example on the page comes from?
14:50 bearophile I understand, but probably I don't understand the implications fully
14:50 bearophile That's where the second D entry was adapted from
14:51 bearophile With significant changes.
14:51 mikemol You're *probably* OK.
14:51 bearophile The web page doesn't have an email address,
14:51 bearophile but the authors are known, and probably the page owner is not too much hard to contact
14:52 bearophile The web page was last updated around 2001
14:52 mikemol Domain owner's email is listed in the domain's WHOIS entry
14:52 bearophile I know, but there are subpages, etc etc
14:53 bearophile In the end it's a standard radix sort, and I have added links and author names and the licence is "unknown", so it's probably not too much felt as a possession
14:53 bearophile So I think it's OK to adapt it to D, changing lot of the code, removing or rewriting variable names, comments, etc.
14:53 mikemol Given that you adapted it to a different language, with significant changes, it's probably OK.
14:53 bearophile I agree.
14:54 bearophile See you later and thank you for the site. I am about at 60% of the revision of the D entries now.
14:54 mikemol Hey
14:54 mikemol I recommend you stick around and lurk. You don't have to be active, it's just easier for people to respond.
14:54 bearophile Yeah? :-)
14:54 mikemol I was able to respond because I'm right here. Most folks in here respond much more slowly.
14:55 bearophile I know...
14:55 * mikemol goes back to coding
14:55 bearophile But I will read the talk page.
14:55 bearophile See you later.
14:59 * mikemol was trying to figure out why RC's traffic had a significant drop over the last couple weeks.
14:59 mikemol I only found out Saturday that colleges were hitting spring break season.
15:02 mikemol A 13% drop in visits. Though there was a 7.9% increase in pages-per-visit.
15:06 mwn3d_phone mikemol: I try to annotate holidays on the analytics page when I know about them.
15:07 mwn3d_phone Mostly american and indian holidays (I work with lots of indians and when they bring candy in I know there was a holiday)
15:43 eMBee :-)
15:45 eMBee i work in china. when i can't get a train or bus ticket, i know there is a holiday ;-)

23:07 * mikemol does his taxes. Looks over RC's 2011 activity.
23:24 * kpreid idly grumbles about the useless RC RC feed.
23:24 kpreid (but you shouldn't listen to me 'cos I'm not that up to participating anyway)
