01:05<jthill>re 11565: assuming FOR_EACH_SET_BIT is a good idea at all, wouldn't just changing it to `j = p->attr&0x2f;` have been better?

02:18<Rubidium>I've already had too little sleep

04:43<Ammler>Rubidium: beta
04:43<Ammler>we have the assert without interacting...
04:44<Ammler>someone is trying to check it with a trunk
04:45<Rubidium>sounds like an already solved issue
04:46<Ammler>but its right, the 0.6 release will still be based on trunk?
04:46<Ammler>as long as there is no new branch?
04:48<Ammler>would make more sense to update the coop server to current nightly then

13:11<fjb>Is there some trouble with road vehicles finding their way again?
13:12|-||Jeroen| [] has joined #openttd
13:12<LeviathNL>I also can't "find" them ingame
13:13<Wolf01>the terrain tiles start at 0 with the brown tiles, then 3 series of green tiles (the 2 not used and the grassy one) up to 75
13:13|-|Maarten [] has joined #openttd
13:14<LeviathNL>these 2 series are used
13:14<Wolf01>no, i tried, they aren't
13:14<LeviathNL>look at the screenshit i posted in the thread
13:14<LeviathNL>try the tar
13:14<Wolf01>and seem that in toyland there are only 2 kinds of road, urban and country
13:15<Wolf01>so i'll convert the new placed to urban
13:15<Wolf01>replacing the brown with the gray
13:17<LeviathNL>do you have a replacement (red groundtiles?) for the red tiles in toyland?
13:17|-|jthill [] has joined #openttd
13:17<LeviathNL>i think they are toylands rough ground
13:20<Wolf01>yes they are
13:20<Wolf01>i'll work on it as soon i'll finish the roads
13:26<LeviathNL>can't I do a color replace on the standard tiles?
13:27<Wolf01>why you should?
13:28<LeviathNL>did you hava any other plans whit these tiles than recoloring them?
13:28<Wolf01>yes, i plan to add plastic rocks
13:29<Wolf01>and little green platic pieces for the rough land
13:29<LeviathNL>ah ok

13:42<CIA-1>OpenTTD: rubidium * r11569 /trunk/src/fileio.cpp: -Fix [FS#1480]: full paths sometimes did not work correctly.
13:46<fjb>I have a problem with a lost train which insists on going to an occupied platform while the neigbour platform is free:
13:47<+glx>fjb: random in action
13:47<fjb>Hm, how can I guide it to the other platform?
13:48<SmatZ>fjb: the train doesn't have the station in its order
13:48<fjb>And I have some routing problems with the road vehicles sometimes not finding their paths in the latest nightly builds.
13:48<hylje>given a portal gun powerful enough
13:48<hylje>could one run a train between them?
13:49<SmatZ>fjb: there were not any changes to the PF... can you describe your problem more accurate, or give exact revision when it "went wrong"?
13:49<SmatZ>hylje: yes
13:51<fjb>Two bus stops in the same small town. The ai once build them and then got sold to me. One bus was going between them. Now every bus that has to go between these two stations (and two others formerly build by the ai), gets instantly lost.
13:52<fjb>The speed indicator below the vehicle window constantly shows a changing speed and the arrow in front of the next station in the routing window is flickering and sometomes jumps between the two stations.
13:53<BiA|pavel-css>sounds like teleport :)
13:53<fjb>And I suddenly have more trains getting lost. I never had lost trains in this game before.

14:06<Wolf01>are the NW slopes too low

15:26<Rubidium>where are you, where is the server, how fast is your computer, how big is the game?

15:29<Prof_Frink>OK, so the problem isn't your end.
15:30<Prof_Frink>Either: The server is running slow, which you can't really do much about, or the intertubes are blocked, which you can't really do much about.
15:30<Rubidium>network @ 0,1 % doesn't necessarily mean that his DSL has enough free bandwidth
15:31<Ikarus-70>Is there anything I can do?

17:02<@Bjarni>Eddi|zuHause: have you heard about the powerplant that a Danish company might build in Germany?
17:02<@Bjarni>I thought so
17:03<@Bjarni>here the news says that there are massive protests against it and that it's a cruel company and shit so I decided to search for this in German... and came up with nothing
17:03<@Bjarni>huge protests and the only thing that came up was the company's own info page on what they offer to build
17:03<Eddi|zuHause>well, maybe it is known in a 2km radius around the building site...

17:05<@Bjarni>still @ Eddi|zuHause

17:05<@Bjarni>because the media here talks a lot and tells only a little
17:06<Eddi|zuHause>i don't remember any serious power shortages if that is what you mean...
17:06<ln->did DDR have the same kind of wall outlets as most of the western europe?
17:07<Eddi|zuHause>at least there is no difference between east and west germany
17:07<@Bjarni>but from what I understand the politicians says that they need more power to get rid of unemployment since new production and stuff needs more power

17:08<@Bjarni>saying stuff that we should only build windmills and stuff
17:08<Eddi|zuHause>i assume they shut down a lot of stuff after The Change, because it was not needed anymore, with most of the industries closing
17:09<@Bjarni>how do you expect to here and now build a reliable supply of power from windmills on a massive scale

17:09|-||Bastiaan| [] has quit [Quit: KVIrc 3.2.6 Anomalies]

17:12|-|mikl [] has joined #openttd
17:14<fjb>I guess it is the coal power plant that filters the co2 and puts it into the ground. And nobody knows if it will really stay there.
17:14<@Bjarni>the thing is that CO2 is likely the only thing that it will not filter out
17:15<@Bjarni>but then again it will have an efficiency of around 50% (I presume that they will not build it worse than the plants they already own), making it far more efficient than the rest of the powerplants in Germany
17:16<fjb>The politicians are talking about filtering CO2 and dumpunk it in the earth. And that power plant will use brown coal, witch doesn't have much energy.
17:16<@Bjarni>here they managed to do that on a test plant
17:16<@Bjarni>well the plant is real
17:16<@Bjarni>they just decided to test on it
17:16<fjb>And some villages will be destroyed when they get the brown coal out of the earth.
17:16<@Bjarni>turns out that the process eats 30% of the power output
17:17<@Bjarni>who uses brown coal today?
17:17<@Bjarni>it sucks :P
17:17<fjb>Yes, but that power plant will filter the CO2, no politician cares how much of the power output that process consumes.
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>this is so funny, there are a lot of closed down brown coal mines here, and they decided to make some of them lakes
17:18<@Bjarni>they can't filter out 100%
17:18<fjb>It sucks, but our politicians decided to still use it. Eastern Germany used it because they had nothing else.
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>then they decided upon a 10 year plan to fill the hole with water
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>then there came The Big Flood
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>and the entire thing filled in 10 days
17:18<@Bjarni>and it was flooded in no time
17:18<@Bjarni>you told us earlier
17:19<@Bjarni>do you presume that we either don't read what you write or have memory leaks?
17:19<Eddi|zuHause>well, the city would most certainly have drowned otherwise...
17:19<@Bjarni>then empty the lakes and use them as water buffers to protect the city
17:19<fjb>The protests against the plant are mainly because it will use brown coal, and some villages will be destroyed. And because the whole plan sucks.
17:20<@Bjarni>gee... do I really have to tell you everything?

17:54<fjb>Gonozal_VIII: Maybe the webmaster of knows her address.
17:54<@Bjarni>it should be that the Russians wanted to use letters too so they sent out some guys to pick them up.

17:56<ben_goodger>that makes a lot of sense
17:56<ben_goodger>it would explain why the russian for L ended up as a reverse of the greek for P, at least.

17:56<@Bjarni>yeah... specially since I was told that story by a Russian who teaches languages at one of their universities
17:58<@Bjarni>but I have no idea if it's the real story... somehow I think if they really fixed the letters then it wouldn't be in the history books because then they would keep it a secret
17:58<Eddi|zuHause>in the way i learned it it was more like bulgarians or something...
17:59<Eddi|zuHause>but similar story

18:00<Eddi|zuHause>ben_goodger: actually, the cyrillic L looks a little similar to the greek Lambda

18:19<mikl>I know a guy who managed to get Goatse on his credit card
18:19<mikl>he played enough with the colours that it was not immediately recogniseable
18:19<mikl>but everyone who had seen goatse before would immidiately recognise it
18:20<mikl>it gave an insane amout of geek cred, of course :)
18:20<Prof_Frink>goat cred
18:20|-|mikl_o_O [] has quit [Quit: Connection reset by Peer Gynt]
18:20<@Bjarni>it's not safe
18:20<Gonozal_VIII>how do you get something on your credit card?
18:21<Eddi|zuHause>get your bank to print a custom image on it?
18:21<@Bjarni>it said "his hands are really in there"... I closed before noticing that >_<
18:21<mikl>Gonozal_VIII: some banks offer it - then you just upload an image and you but it on the card
18:22<mikl>Gonozal_VIII: In this case, it was a Danish bank - "Jyske Bank" :)
18:22<@Bjarni>I say that I wouldn't want it on my credit card... imagine all the places where you use it
18:22<Gonozal_VIII>i've never used a credit card
18:22[~]Bjarni would reject a guys payment if the credit card looks like that
18:23<@Bjarni><Gonozal_VIII> i've never used a credit card <-- you mean you owe the bank so much that they don't trust you with one?
18:23<Prof_Frink>I want a credit card that causes "Cost: £50" to float out the top in red letters whenever you use it
18:23<Gonozal_VIII>^^ i don't know many people that use credit cards here
18:24<@orudge>[23:18:37] <Prof_Frink> No, really, it's safe <-- it is, actually
18:24<Prof_Frink>orudge: Too slow
18:24<@orudge>oh well
18:24<@Bjarni>actually I learned that my credit card isn't a credit card at all... I'm told it's a debit card instead
18:24<mikl>I don' t have a credit card either - I have Visa Electron
18:25<mikl>helps me not spend more than I have :)
18:25[~]Bjarni don't even have visa
18:25<@Bjarni>no need for it
18:25<mikl>debit card is the right term for it, I believe
18:25<SmatZ>I got one for free when settling my bank account...
18:25<mikl>Bjarni: what kind of debit card do you have that's not a Electron?
18:25<@Bjarni>besides it makes it way less interesting for international criminals
18:26<mikl>Bjarni: that too
18:26<Gonozal_VIII>for free... until they charge you every month for it
18:26<@Bjarni><mikl> Bjarni: what kind of debit card do you have that's not a Electron? <-- you have 3 guesses :)
18:26<mikl>that's the only other I can think of...
18:26<Gonozal_VIII>i have a maestro card :-)
18:27<mikl>unless you're thinking of those your-own-banks-ATMs-only-cards
18:27<@Bjarni>mikl: it's not that tricky... I just said that I can't travel with it meaning that it only works here
18:28<mikl>But the Dankort /is/ a credit card
18:28<mikl>by my definition, anyways...
18:28<@Bjarni>are you sure?
18:28<mikl>since it's possible to withdraw more than you have
18:29<@Bjarni>but only stupid people do that :p
18:29<@Bjarni>besides you have to have an agreement with your bank to do that
18:29<@Bjarni>I think
18:29<mikl>I'm stooopid then, I suppose
18:29<mikl>You can do it without their agreement, but they'll get angry ;)
18:29<@Bjarni>they charge you an arm and a leg for going into negative
18:30<mikl>and/or have you make a real credit agreement
18:30<Eddi|zuHause>Maestro (or Electronic Cash) are the most common cards in germany... they are not credit cards
18:30<mikl>been there, done that - now I'm in debt :(
18:31<mikl>Eddi|zuHause: One of the largest Danish banks use them as well, but most of them went with Visa Electron (which works the same way)
18:31<@Bjarni>you know they give you virtually no interest in your cash in the bank (regular account) but if you go into negative they start putting all kinds of fees on your account and then the interest is really noteworthy
18:31<@Bjarni>that's why I avoid it
18:32<ln->mikl: there are Visa Debit cards, which are not Electrons nor credit cards.
18:32<Prof_Frink>Indeed. I have one right here.
18:33<mikl>ln-: Oh - interesting :)
18:33<@Bjarni>you see... if your income is X and your expenses are X every month, then you just need to have a positive cash on the account to start with. If you have say -5000 every month then you add and subtract the same amount of cash (in fact less because the bank keeps some of it) so just keep some money there and make sure it will not reach 0
18:34<Eddi|zuHause>the good thing about Maestro is that most stores here accept them without additional fee
18:34<@Bjarni>and you will save a whole lot of money
18:34<mikl>It's a quite new thing for average Danes to be using anything but our national Dankort or the Visa/Dankort
18:35<@Bjarni>I don't the students who says that they have to go into negative every month because they are low on income.... it's a static problem, not a dynamic one. It's a question of what about of money you have a minimum on your account
18:35<ln->Eddi|zuHause: over here, quite many stores have the Maestro logo on their window along with the other logos, but i don't know anyone who has a Maestro. (while i know a lot of people having Electron).
18:35<mikl>Bjarni: yeah, it's not a monetary problem - it's a lack of self-discipline
18:35<+glx>I have an Electron
18:36<ln->glx: sorry to hear that.
18:36<Eddi|zuHause>most banks here don't give credit to students
18:36<@orudge>I have a Visa, and a Maestro!
18:36<Eddi|zuHause>at least the minimum on my account is 0
18:36<+glx>that was my choice
18:36<Prof_Frink>switchmaestro! With rathergood penguins!
18:37<@Bjarni><Eddi|zuHause> most banks here don't give credit to students <--- surprisingly I was (as a student) offered to borrow money so I could buy a car and pay it back in only (inset obscene number here) months
18:37<ln->over here all banks give credit cards to students having completed enough courses, and with no record of trouble with payments.
18:38<@Bjarni>I didn't like the car they offered and the interest looked kind of nasty too
18:38<@Bjarni>glx: I think it was even more
18:38<Eddi|zuHause>funnily, once i had X euro on my account, a payment of X+3 going off from the account at day A, and a payment of Y going on the account at day A+1, so i ended up with Y-3 euro, and a (theoretical) -3 euro for one day
18:38<+glx>36 is already a lot for a car
18:38<@Bjarni>unless I took care of the car I would still be paying on it when it was unable to drive
18:38<Eddi|zuHause>but there was no complaint from the bank
18:38<@Bjarni>the offer was really weird
18:39<ln->actually, over here it is/was a lot easier to get a Visa by being a university student than by being a regular citizen.
18:39<@Bjarni>also I had to ensure it at a specific insurance company
18:40<+glx>hmm that implies pay more for no more guaranties
18:40<@Bjarni>they just forgot to ask one simple question: do I want my own car? :)
18:40<mikl>Bjarni: it's like buying a phone from L'easy - you'll pay it off over three years...
18:40<mikl>who keeps a mobile phone for three years? ;)
18:40<+glx>I do
18:40<Gonozal_VIII>me too
18:40<@Bjarni>I do
18:40<mikl>I usually manage to break mine every 6 months or so :(
18:41<ln->i've understood the requirements for a Visa are 1) a permanent job, 2) with high enough income, 3) and having had that job for at least 6 months. non-permanent jobs are not ok.
18:41<mikl>last one got smashed in a car door
18:41<ln->while a student can get a Visa with virtually a zero-income and no job.
18:41<mikl>don't remember what happened to the one before that, but the screen broke somehow
18:42<+glx>my old phone is still functional, but it needs a new battery
18:42<@orudge>ln-: it's funny, the bank gave me a Visa before they even gave me a Maestro debit card
18:42<@Bjarni>glx: same here.... I wonder if it's worth to invest in a new battery though
18:42<+glx>that's why I got a new one
18:42<@Bjarni>it wasn't even a high end phone to begin with
18:43<@Bjarni>usually I'm around a power supply when I need it though
18:43<@Bjarni>12V,24V or 230V
18:43<Gonozal_VIII>i got a new one because i switched to a different company and i coudn't unlock it
18:44<+glx>siemens c25, and now I have an alcatel OT 511
18:44<@Bjarni> <Gonozal_VIII> i got a new one because i switched to a different company and i coudn't unlock it <-- here the people who sells you the phone has to unlock it for free after 6 months
18:45<+glx>same here
18:45<@Bjarni>could be an EU rule
18:45<ln->we didn't have locked phones at all before 3G.
18:45<Gonozal_VIII>never heard of that
18:45<+glx>though I didn't unlock any of my phone ;)
18:45<ln->and even now, only 3G phones are allowed to be locked.
18:45<@Bjarni>to allow free competition between the phone companies
18:46<+glx>apple will have problem with iphone ;)
18:46<@Bjarni><glx> though I didn't unlock any of my phone ;) <-- I did... when I learned that I could cut my phone bill by around 70% by doing so
18:46<ln->iphone is already being sold unlocked in germany.
18:46<@Bjarni>iPhone is a real problem.... I wonder what will happen
18:47<Eddi|zuHause>ln-: for 999€
18:47<ln->Bjarni: next february you'll be porting OTTD for it.
18:47<ln->Eddi|zuHause: yeah. cheap as bread.
18:47<mikl>In Denmark, we've always* had locked phones - but the vendor is required to fork over the codes on demand when you've had the phone for 6 months
18:47<@Bjarni>but I know what will not happen: I will not stand in line to become one of the first to get one
18:47<Eddi|zuHause>but as i understood, they still have lawsuits going on wether they have to sell them unlocked or not
18:48<mikl>that works fairly well - we have cheap phones, but we're not locked in for an unreasonable amount of time
18:48<@Bjarni><ln-> Bjarni: next february you'll be porting OTTD for it. <-- I considered it but then I would have problems with screen size
18:48<ln->that's true.
18:48<Gonozal_VIII>my old phone was a siemens a55... i think... and now i have a nokia 1110i.. or something
18:48<Eddi|zuHause>the only phone i ever had said i could get the unlock codes for free after 2 years
18:48<ln->Bjarni: but if only running a dedicated server, that doesn't matter.
18:49<mikl>ln-: the question is - why would you want to have a dedicated server on your iPhone?
18:49<ln->mikl: to attract females.
18:50<@Bjarni>my ISP locked my internet connection as well for 6 months... well they said that but when I upgraded the speed I got a slower speed instead and two bills... turned out that the problem was that they locked it for 2/1 years instead of 1/2 years
18:50<mikl>ln-: I suppose that is an option... Humans have always had strange mating preferences ;)
18:50<@Bjarni>that was a real mess to clean up :(
18:51<@Bjarni>and the really stupid thing about it was that the lock prevented me from getting a higher speed at the same ISP :P
18:52[~]ln- has 10/10 Mbit/s
18:52<@Bjarni>even though according to their conditions the lock shouldn't be a problem if I wanted to upgrade to a faster (read: more expensive) connection
18:52[~]SmatZ doesn't
18:52<Eddi|zuHause>hm... my newgrf directory disappeared...
18:52<Eddi|zuHause>very strange...
18:52<Eddi|zuHause>1. gather newgrfs
18:52[~]mikl has 8/2 mbit
18:52<Eddi|zuHause>2. ???
18:52<DaleStan>I told you rm -rf was a bad idea.
18:52<Eddi|zuHause>3. profit!!
18:53<@Bjarni>ln-: the owner of the copper cables here considers upstream something to be avoided if possible so in extreme cases we can get 1,5 mb upstream... not more
18:53<+glx>Eddi|zuHause: too much SP ;)
18:53<@Bjarni>and preferable not more than 512 kb
18:53<@orudge>I have 832kbps upstream here, and that's the most they offer on a standard ADSL connection
18:53<@Bjarni>default 128 kbit upstream
18:53<+glx>1023 up here
18:53<mikl>Bjarni: it's not so bad after they've started rolling out ADSL2+
18:53<@orudge>most ADSL Max connections are 448kbps upstream, standard ADSL is 288kbs up
18:53<@Bjarni>do any of you fancy a 4096/128 connection?
18:53<mikl>I have that here, works admirably
18:53<SmatZ>4096/512 here
18:53<Gonozal_VIII>3mbit down, 384 kbit up
18:54<Eddi|zuHause>i have something like 64kbit up
18:54<@orudge>8132/832 here
18:54<@orudge>(Although, in practice, it's closer to 6.5Mbps
18:54<mikl>8192/2048 :)
18:54[~]ln- is connected through Cat5e/6 and optic fibre, no DSL technique at any point.
18:54<+glx>up to 20Mb/1Mb, but I can't get more than 4.5Mb
18:54<mikl>ln-: unfair!
18:54[~]orudge has 100Mbps down/up in comp sci though
18:54<@orudge>and indeed, I had that last year and the year before
18:55<@orudge> was the best result I got, I think, on
18:55<ln->mikl: the benefits of student apartments.
18:55<+glx>we'll have 100/50 with optic fiber (one day)
18:55<@Bjarni><mikl> Bjarni: it's not so bad after they've started rolling out ADSL2+ <-- it's limited where you can get that and they still charge you a whole lot for upstream compared to other countries
18:55<@Bjarni>surprisingly Denmark has a whole lot of fast internet connections compared to other countries while we pay twice as much for the same speed
18:56<mikl>Bjarni: that's right - monopoly bastards...
18:56<Gonozal_VIII>3mbit is 50 euro/month
18:56<+glx>29.9€ here
18:57<+glx>including TV and free phone to more than 50 countries

18:57<Gonozal_VIII>including nothing
18:58<ln->24/1 is 49.90€ here, 2/1 is 33€, 8/1 is 39€
18:58<mikl>bleh, is 'orribly broken
18:58<ln->my 10/10: 0€
18:58<mikl>the best way to test your connection (downstream at any rate) is torrents :)
18:59<@orudge>downstream if it's a private torrent
18:59<@orudge>upstream if it's a public torrent
18:59<@orudge>in my experience :P
18:59<mikl>I usually peak at 832 KB/s
18:59<+glx>mikl: but that depends on seeders
18:59<ln->how's minitel doing?
18:59<mikl>which means I get more or less what I pay for
18:59<Eddi|zuHause>well, this is the right time to set up a common newgrf directory for all checkouts...

19:06<mikl>the internet is like that...
19:06<mikl>strange in many ways

19:18<Prof_Frink>mikl: Keep an eye on lws1984's blog then.
19:19<Prof_Frink>mikl: Are you Jolteon?
19:19<mikl>Prof_Frink: no, Pokémons exist only in your imagination.
19:19<mikl>Sorry that I had to be the one to tell you ;)

19:22<@Bjarni>I want that domain name XD
19:22<mikl>I knew a couple of guys that rented out gameservers
19:23<@orudge>I have vhosts like, and!
19:23<Eddi|zuHause>in #mathe we once introduced a ban on *.*.*.*.*.*
19:23<@orudge> is another!
19:23<@orudge>funky, eh?
19:23<mikl>Bjarni: I actually own :)
19:23<@orudge>Eddi|zuHause: good thinking
19:23[~]Prof_Frink just uses the standard cloak
19:23<Prof_Frink>orudge: Oi
19:23<Prof_Frink>[23:17:48] <+Prof_Frink> Can you at least ban *!*@*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.* ?
19:23<Eddi|zuHause>we later had to increase the number of . though, because some provider used that many
19:23<@Bjarni>mikl: it looks empty
19:23<mikl>Bjarni: It is
19:24<mikl>I once had and managed to get TDC to bind my IP to :)
19:24<Eddi|zuHause>i think it was tiscali
19:24<Eddi|zuHause>it used the normal ip, and then added to it, or something
19:24[~]Bjarni wonders if mikl is drunk
19:25[~]orudge 's ISP lets him specify his own reverse DNS
19:25<mikl>Bjarni: nono, not this early :)
19:25<mikl>so when I IRC'd from home I'd be :D
19:25<NarkSlap>Bjarni, Is OpenTTD swedish from the start?
19:26<@Bjarni>that dependsd
19:26<mikl>oh, sweet 18 ...
19:26<@orudge>not as such
19:26<Eddi|zuHause>also, we have a ban on *xx0r* for all the lamers...
19:26<@orudge>the project that became OpenTTD was written by a Swedish author
19:26<@orudge>in Sweden, as far as I know
19:26<@orudge>but it wasn't know as OpenTTD until it was released to the public ;)
19:26<@Bjarni>NarkSlap: basically if your system is set to Swedish then yes
19:26<NarkSlap>How old is that guy now?
19:26<NarkSlap>Bjarni, hehe, no
19:27<Eddi|zuHause>he is still alive, if that is what you ask :p
19:28<@Bjarni>I once spoke with a Dane who had Swedish windows on his laptop and Swedish keyboard... then he said that it was impossible to install anything but Swedish windows on it... he tried to install the Danish version but it detected his language change and rejected him
19:28<NarkSlap>Eddi|zuHause, mja, Its a guy on an other net that claims that his brother started OpenTTD
19:28<Gonozal_VIII>curry and chocolate?
19:28<mikl>he retired from OTTD after destroying the SVN repository, if memory serves
19:28<NarkSlap>And this guy should now be 26years
19:28<mikl>or was it his brother that trashed it - don't remeber
19:28<@Bjarni>the guy who started OpenTTD?
19:29<mikl>can't spell, it's too leate...
19:29<mikl>or early
19:29<@Bjarni>I can remember the incident... the question is...
19:29<@Bjarni>NarkSlap: what is the real name of this guy?
19:30<NarkSlap>What now then?
19:30<@Bjarni>I meant the brother :p
19:30<NarkSlap>Yes, Ludvig
19:30<@Bjarni>Ludvig's brother
19:30<NarkSlap>His brothers name is Ludvig he says
19:30<@Bjarni>Ludvig's brother's brother's brother

19:32<NarkSlap>glx, same guy?
19:33<NarkSlap>Bjarni, his nick is wiggo^ btw and lives in Gothenburg
19:33<@Bjarni>this is not like the time when a guy from Australia turned out and claimed to be friends with Ludvig and that they did drugs together and were heavy drinkers and active on the dancefloor
19:33<@Bjarni>if you know ludde/Ludvig then you will understand how far out this one is
19:34<NarkSlap>Okey :>
19:34<@Bjarni>specially the dancefloor part
19:34<mikl>I wish OS X had edge resistance ...
19:34<@Bjarni>basically ludde is stuck in a wheelchair
19:35<+glx>NarkSlap: whois says it can be true
19:35<NarkSlap>It can be hard to dance then
19:35<@Bjarni>makes it rather hard to imagine him being an active dancer, a heavy drinker and wandering from bar to bar
19:35<NarkSlap>glx, mkay :P
19:36<Gonozal_VIII>there is a blind programmer at my uni...
19:36<@Bjarni><mikl> he retired from OTTD after destroying the SVN repository, if memory serves <-- actually it was an external guy who gained access somehow and wrecked the server
19:36<AntB>thats gotta be a pain when debugging
19:36<@Bjarni>we never figured out how :(
19:36<Gonozal_VIII>that's kind of like dancing with a wheelchair

19:38<@orudge>woo, I may be working at Apple next summer :D

19:38<Sacro>i might do GSOC over summer
19:39<@Bjarni>sounds like something exploded outside
19:39<@orudge>I exploded, sorry.

19:41<Gonozal_VIII>it was a nuclear bomb, you are dead now... you've gone to hell, you have to stay in this channel forever and look at goatse links and you can never log out
19:41<@Bjarni>if this was hell then I wouldn't be op
19:41<@Bjarni>or maybe I would
19:41<@Bjarni>then I had to decide who to kick

19:50<mikl>it's mainly a glorified spreadsheet
19:50<mikl>but the bugs I've found in a few years of use are only on nuisance-level
19:50<mikl>like the binding of the same accelerator-key for different purposes
19:51<mikl>in some windows, Alt-N means two different things at once
19:51<mikl>and stuff like that...
19:51<@Bjarni>and their beta testers didn't figure this out?
19:52<+glx>they are not real users
19:52<mikl>Bjarni: apparently not. And it did not get fixed in SP1 or SP2
19:52<mikl>we hope it's been done in 5.0
19:52<+glx>did you report it to MS?
19:53<mikl>we reported it to our "partner"
19:53<mikl>i.e. Microsofts partners that handles customers for them and charges an extortionate amount of money for it

20:31<Eddi|zuHause2>hm... why is there a "for (;;)" in IsRoadAllowedHere (town_cmd.cpp around line 713)
20:32<ln->for the smilies?
20:33<Sacro>Eddi|zuHause2: turing completeness testing
20:34<Eddi|zuHause2>but "for" does not indicate turing completeness, usually you need "while" for that
20:34<Eddi|zuHause2>of course in the case of C, "for" is simulated with "while"
20:36<ln->Eddi|zuHause2: it's claimed that some compilers generate faster code with "for(;;)" than "while(1)"
20:36<ln->old ones
20:36<Sacro>goto is better
20:36<Eddi|zuHause2>in theoretical computer science, a "for-language" can describe primitive-recursive functions, a "while-language" can describe partial-recursive functions
20:36<Eddi|zuHause2>the latter ones are turing complete
20:37|-|Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:37<Eddi|zuHause2>note that in theoretical computer science, "recursive functions" are partial-recursive functions that terminate on all inputs
20:38<Eddi|zuHause2>Sacro: that function also uses a goto
20:38[~]Sacro <3 goto
20:38<Sacro>so useful
20:38<Eddi|zuHause2>and i can see absolutely no reason for the loop...
20:39<ln->Eddi|zuHause2: let me guess: it was that way in the original game.
20:39<ln->Sacro: with setjmp/longjmp you can achieve even more bizarre code.
20:39<Sacro>ln-: i don't think C# allows that
20:40<Sacro>it makes me use /unsafe on the compiler :(
20:41<+glx>ln-: we removed most setjmp/longjmp
20:41<+glx>the remaining are needed by libpng
20:45<Eddi|zuHause2>hm... in GrowTownInTile, line 993, why is there an unconditional LevelTownLand(tile) before placing a road?
