16:09 mikemol I hate the [[Proof]] task.
16:09 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Proof
16:09 mikemol This isn't the first time it's been the epicenter of an angry explosion.
16:10 mikemol And I'm equally pissed that I haven't had time to step in and put out the fire before it got too deep.
16:58 mwn3d_phone Yeah rdm seems pretty pissed too
17:00 mwn3d_phone Not sure if we should blow it away and rebuild it...or maybe just blow it away
17:01 mwn3d_phone It was started a loooong time ago though
17:01 mwn3d_phone Before we had any real RC practices
17:03 mwn3d_phone It seems like its ok to have but people might need to be more accepting of best effort solutions and less focused on not excluding languages
17:03 mikemol [[Proof]] has _always_ had problems with non-type-algebra folks misunderstanding the task.
17:03 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Proof
17:03 mwn3d_phone It should explicitly say "don't do this in C" but the task idea isn't really well suited to many languages
17:04 mwn3d_phone Shouldn't*
17:05 mikemol I think [[Proof]] was one of the tasks I'd suggested deprecating. I don't remember, though.
17:05 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Proof
17:05 mwn3d_phone Heh we could put a big orange banner up top that says "warning: hardcore computer science going on in here. Tread lightly."
17:06 mikemol Honestly, I don't think we'll be getting Rdm back. Even if I rewrote everything to be exactly the way he wanted it, the language he used when he wrote on my user page suggests to me he's lost enthusiasm for the site.
17:08 * mwn3d_phone tries to see if he pissed of rdm in the past on talk pages
17:08 sorear wtf.  it says dependent types in the synopsis.  Last I checked, J has no static types at all.
