01:16 skinkitten what genius site. thank you people. how long has rosettacode been around?
01:28 ttmrichter skinkitten: Ages and ages.  I've been registered on it for at least five years, possibly longer.
01:28 ttmrichter And when I registered it was already very mature.
01:28 skinkitten wow
01:29 skinkitten only complaint is that I see the use of L l as a variable name
01:29 skinkitten but its improved my ability so far; after a days use
01:29 ttmrichter L l?
01:29 ttmrichter I'm not sure I follow.
01:29 skinkitten lower case l
01:30 skinkitten i typed big L to illustrate
01:30 skinkitten so it doesn't look like 1 one
01:30 ttmrichter Select a good font and it won't.
01:30 ttmrichter I use Source Code Pro.
01:30 ttmrichter There's a few other good coding fonts.
01:31 skinkitten on rosettacode?
01:31 ttmrichter A good coding font by definition won't let you confuse O and 0 or l and 1 and such.
01:32 skinkitten i'm talking about the code submitted on rosettacode
01:32 ttmrichter Well, in my browser I tell it what my monospace font is, so yes.
01:32 ttmrichter Hmmm...  Allert to the admins: there's been a huge block of user accounts created most of which look like spam accounts.
01:33 ttmrichter IsaacRPBLqvrrx doesn't strike me as a plausible user name.
01:33 ttmrichter Nor does QZAMickismw.

04:54 ttmrichter mikemol: Just a heads-up: there's a whole lot of suspiciously-named new accounts created over the last couple of days.
05:38 mwn3d1 ttmrichter: there have been soooo many of those made over the last couple of months
05:38 mwn3d1 (That's a scientific measurement)
05:39 ttmrichter mwn3d1: Yeah.  soooooo many.  More than a tad few, less than a metric fuckload.
05:39 * ttmrichter knows such units well.  ;)
06:15 mikemol I'll be working on getting RC's migration target set up this weekend.
06:16 mikemol Frankly, I doubt it'll make a difference in the spam accounts...but when it's done, I'll be able to enable image uploads again...
06:31 bilat has anyone been working on any specific rosettacode tasks lately?
06:58 realazthat joined #rosettacode
08:46 ttmrichter bilat: I just did http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Gray_code#Mercury and earlier today did http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Stack#Mercury
08:46 fedaykin "Gray code - Rosetta Code" "Stack - Rosetta Code"
08:58 charlesism joined #rosettacode
09:42 bilat ttmrichter: very interesting, this is the first time i've heard of Mercury
09:45 ttmrichter bilat: A sorta-kinda analogy is Mercury is Prolog's Haskell.  :)
09:46 ttmrichter It's a purity-obsessed dialect of Prolog with functional trappings added.
09:46 ttmrichter And unlike Haskell it's got some concessions to the real world in it such that you can carefully add impurity provided you tag it with a warning for those who come after.
09:49 bugmagnet joined #rosettacode
09:51 bilat ttmrichter: your write up was informative and very neat
09:51 ttmrichter Thanks.
09:51 ttmrichter Which one?  The Gray code one?
09:51 ttmrichter That was me switching to lecturer mode.
09:51 * ttmrichter ← teacher
09:52 bilat ttmrichter: yes, your gray code demonstration
09:54 ttmrichter Took me a while to write that.
09:54 ttmrichter Not the code.  The module code was trivial and the demo code just had me hitting the books to find predicates/functions already in the standard library instead of rolling my own.
09:54 bilat ttmrichter: do you teach CS?
09:54 ttmrichter But the verbiage around that.  That's the SHORT version.  :)
09:54 ttmrichter Nope.  I teach English.  :D
