04:57<@Celestar>oh man. why are word processors that horrible in creating texts :P

04:58<@Celestar>it's really a pita
04:58<@Celestar>it's ok as long as you have a single column document with no pictures or anything
05:01<planetmaker>hehe, yes. LaTeX rulez ;)
05:01<@Celestar>yes. but those people want their abstracts in *.doc or *.rtf
05:01<@Celestar>and I don't have a decent latex-to-rtf converter
05:01<planetmaker>but it's not good at placing images in an exact location either...
05:01<planetmaker>Celestar: yeah, I know that problem...

05:25<Eddi|zuHause>make the .tex into a .pdf, put the .pdf into the .doc as an embedded OLE Object?
05:26<Eddi|zuHause>i mean, you have to abuse these kind of rules to the furthest way possible ;)
05:26<@Celestar>yeah
05:26<@Celestar>like many of my colleagues who send screenshots in a word document :S
05:27<planetmaker>arg...!
05:27<Eddi|zuHause>as long as the screenshot is a BMP or a TIFF ;)
05:28<Eddi|zuHause>why does my diploma thesis not write itself?
05:29<@Rubidium>because your thesis research about self writing theses is flawed
05:29<Eddi|zuHause>hm, but then at least i'd have a basis to argue why it's flawed ;)
05:30<Eddi|zuHause>scientifical studies do not have to yield "success" to get good grades ;)
05:31<Eddi|zuHause>it wouldn't be science when we knew the results beforehand ;)
05:31<@Rubidium>yup.. as long as you describe exhaustively how you research is flawed you'll get a good grade

05:35<@Celestar>I've already given out a 1.0 once for a thesis that discovered that some modelling approach failed and explained the reasons in detail.
05:36<@Rubidium>hmm... German grades? What would it be if graded from 1 (worst) to 10 (best) (6 = pass)
05:39<@Rubidium>interesting rounding... 2- -> 2.3, 2+ -> 1.7
05:49<Eddi|zuHause>1=best
05:51<Eddi|zuHause>well, it's perfectly well rounded from 2.333... and 1.6666... to 1 decimal
05:53<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: the really interesting question is why do you need 4 different shades of "not passed"?
05:54<@Rubidium>no idea
05:54<Eddi|zuHause>or 5 even
05:56<@Celestar>Rubidium: 1.0 is the best (=
05:56<@Rubidium>probably the same reason that for beta courses (science stuff) to get a 6 you need 60% correct and for alpha courses (language stuff) you need 80% correct to get a 6 (i.e. pass). Why may you make twice the amount of errors for beta courses than for alpha courses?
05:56<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: it's mathematically consistent though ;)
05:57<@Rubidium>the Danish system amazes me even more
05:57<@Rubidium>highest grade ranges from -3 to 12 in 7 steps (according to Wikipedia)

06:45<@Celestar>O_o
06:45<@Celestar>the Bugatti Veyron GT will have a peak power of 1MW
06:45<@Celestar>425km/h.
06:45<@Celestar>hm .. an ICE 3 can reach the same velocty with about 9 MW.
06:45<@Celestar>yet it offers 400 seats instead of two.
06:45<mrfrenzy>but not as fast ;)
06:46<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: the ICE 3 can go over 400km/h
06:46<mrfrenzy>I'm talking about acceleration
06:46<@Celestar>yeah.
06:46<@Celestar>true
06:46<@Celestar>then
06:46<mrfrenzy>still, a roadcar with over 300hp is ridiculous
06:46<@Celestar>the Veyron at max speed empties a fuel tank in just under 12 minutes.
06:47<@Celestar>refuelling for 6 minutes every 12 minutes has a pretty shitty effect on your mean velocity :P
06:47<mrfrenzy>indeed ;)
06:47<@Celestar>12 Minutes.
06:47<@Celestar>I doubt even a fighter jet manages to drain the tanks in 12 Minutes.
06:47<@Celestar>the Space Shuttle needs almost 9 :P
06:48<@Celestar>ok granted, it's tank is a bit larger...
06:48<mrfrenzy>I think with afterburners it empties the tank in 10 minutes or so
06:48<mrfrenzy>but then the speed is a lot higher than the veyron ;)
06:49<@Celestar>about Mach 2 :P
06:50<@Celestar>well the Veyron GT needs 2.4 seconds from 0 to 100km/h
06:50<@Celestar>and 2.2 seconds for 100km/h to 0.
06:51<@Celestar>let's see.
06:52<@Celestar>a Piper Malibu Mirage has 6 seats, a top speed of 430km/h, the same price and a range of 2500kmh
06:52<@Celestar>2500km*
06:53<@Celestar>and it can have a loo :P
06:54<mrfrenzy>I doubt anyone gets the veyron for cost efficiency ;)
06:54<@Celestar>I'm not talk about cost
06:54<@Celestar>I'm talking about performance :P
06:54<mrfrenzy>but I see you are doing openttd calculations ;) amount of cargotiles per day vs investment and running
06:54<mrfrenzy>costs
06:54<@Celestar>and, I go 430km/h in most airspaces. On highways, it get's a _little_ difficult
06:54<@Celestar>lol
06:55<mrfrenzy>it's in the blodd
06:55<@Celestar>If you wanna go from A to B FAST (if the distance is over like 100km), a car is usually not a good way to do so
06:56<mrfrenzy>yep we noticed that, going from jonkoping sweden to berlin, six people, is cheaper by plane than it is sharing a car
06:56<@Celestar>if I want bragging rights, I get an A380 for personal transportation not a Veyron
06:57<mrfrenzy>the A380 is just damn hard to bring to parties :P
06:57<@Celestar>what good is that? You have the party IN the A380.
06:58<@Celestar>and if you throw people outta the party if you don't like them, you can be pretty sure they'll never return again (=
06:59<mrfrenzy>that's an added feature I would have liked a few times :P
06:59<thingwath>is it possible to throw out things from plane while in air?
06:59<mrfrenzy>most certainly
06:59<@Celestar>possible, and allowed
06:59<@Celestar>you just have to make sure it doesn't cause damage on the ground :P
06:59<mrfrenzy>how do you think parachute jumpers get out?
07:00<thingwath>from A380?
07:00<@Celestar>they diffuse through the hull
07:00<mrfrenzy>:P
07:00<@Celestar>thingwath: there are in-flight emergency exits.
07:00<@Celestar>at least the prototype of the Do328 had one
07:01<thingwath>I can imagine throwing out things from bomber :-)
07:01<@Celestar>er .. price for Munich-Hamburg round trip on the ICE went down from over 400 EUR to 137 EUR O_o
07:02<thingwath>:-)
07:02<@Celestar>two people
07:02*Celestar books it
07:03<@Celestar>that's not bad for an 800km trip
07:03<@Celestar>(one way)
07:04<mrfrenzy>It still puzzles me though that train is more expensive than air
07:04<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: why does it puzzle you
07:04<mrfrenzy>the running costs should be lower, at the same time as it takes more pax
07:04-!-stillunknown [~stillunkn@82-136-225-75.ip.telfort.nl] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:05<@Celestar>infrastructure cost for trains grow superlinearly with distance. infrastructure cost for planes are basically independent of distance.
07:05<mrfrenzy>electricity is a hell of a lot more efficient
07:05<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: it's not.
07:05<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: overall efficiency of an electric train is comparable to a modern airplane.
07:06<@Rubidium>Celestar: that depends on the distance and the cargo ;)
07:06<mrfrenzy>ooh, it was a lot more efficient than I ghought
07:07<@Celestar>Rubidium: distance from about 500-800km, cargo is human beings.
07:07<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: what is more efficient than you thought?
07:07<mrfrenzy>jet engines
07:07<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: most modern power plants are modified jet engines, you know (=
07:07<mrfrenzy>I thought it was similar to internal combustion engines
07:08<@Celestar>internatl combustion engines are not bad, provided you run them at around rated power.
07:08<@Celestar>they're horrible in part-loads
07:08<mrfrenzy>well that is the problem
07:08<mrfrenzy>you only run them at rated load for 1% of the time
07:09<@Celestar>yeah
07:09<@Celestar>but jet engines are different
07:09<@Celestar>better in part load, and more often run at rated output
07:10<mrfrenzy>yeah, I assume it has been calculated at which speeds you get best fuel economy
07:10<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: yes.
07:10<@Celestar>mrfrenzy: the thing is, what one has to understand with fixed-wing aircraft is that drag does not increase with v².
07:11<mrfrenzy>this is all very interesting, but I have to go back to work now ;) laters
07:11<@Celestar>(=

09:53<nicfer>question, is possible to reduce the amount of farms fields?
09:53<planetmaker>answer: no. Unless you modify source code.
09:53<planetmaker>(or build on the space where they are)
09:54<nicfer>oh, like adding 'fields' to other industries right?

15:35<nicfer>erm, are there any newgrf that does something similar to the OCS, aka putting all the primary industries that aren't in temperate in there and making secondary industries accepting their cargos?
15:36<frosch123>not that I know of

15:38<frosch123>when you want to code it yourself you have to take a look at Action0 for cargos and industries. (and the always needed Action8)
15:38<planetmaker>Thx a lot, frosch123, petern - now it works. I guess I should more often just try on good chance the obvious function name for such conversions ;)

15:39<frosch123>planetmaker: hint, those GetXXX functions are created by the create pool macro. So they work all the same :)
15:40<planetmaker>ah :) Another thing learnt... :) Macros are still a mystery to me... poking in the fog ;)
15:40<nicfer>because I find current industry replacement newgrfs kinda unfitting to the original ones

16:38<Aali>planetmaker: couldn't you just hide the button when the station doesn't have an airport? duplicating the whole station window to make some minor changes isn't very pretty :P
16:39<planetmaker>That's - as I understand it - not possible by design.
16:39<planetmaker>you have to supply a widget list upon creation. Thus the widget list needs to be doubled.
16:40<planetmaker>And that's the only thing which I double.
16:40<planetmaker>The widget arangement.
16:40<Aali>sure, but you can still hide widgets in the OnPaint method
16:41<planetmaker>oh, yes? I didn't know that. But then, the window size is different...
16:41<Aali>there will be an empty spot where the button is, of course
16:41<frosch123>planetmaker: take a look at the QueryWindows
16:41<planetmaker>Which again looks a bit funny, Aali
16:41<Aali>indeed
16:41<frosch123>some of them have a reset to default button, some do not
16:41<yorick>planetmaker: SetWidgetHiddenState
16:41<planetmaker>hm... I'll look at it... :)
16:42<Aali>can you resize widgets in the OnPaint method?
16:42<planetmaker>frosch123: which query windows? E.g. land tile query? or...?
16:42<yorick>Aali: yep
16:42<planetmaker>Aali: yes... but the button has text. It would look ugly
16:42<Aali>so, we remove the text
16:42<yorick>you can redraw the text
16:42<frosch123>planetmaker: text input windows
16:43<planetmaker>ah, those...
16:43<Aali>a small graphical button that fits in with the other buttons could be squeezed in for airports and hidden for other stations
16:44<Aali>like a stop sign or whatever
16:44<planetmaker>Aali: my idea was to make a 2nd button line with the same buttons as road/ship/train/air - but with the functionality to close that transportation type
16:44<planetmaker>(like those buttons which supply the vehicle lists)
16:44<yorick>just add a resizing button and hide it if there's not an airport
16:44<Aali>i thought about that too, but closing other station types doesn't make much sense
16:45<planetmaker>yorick: there is already a resizing button.
16:45<planetmaker>Aali: it does with IS ;)
16:45<yorick>yes :)
16:45<yorick>Aali: I said hide it ;)
16:46<Aali>well, the problem is that it affects the whole station
16:46<yorick>make a "close airport"
16:46<Aali>if you could close individual road stops/platforms that would be great
16:46<Aali>but thats not going to happen
16:46<planetmaker>Aali: there's a removal tool... ;)
16:48<fjb>And signals (for closing platforms).
16:50<Aali>I don't see how that makes the station-closing feature more useful
16:51<Aali>the problem with airports is that you can't stop aircraft in the air, the other vehicles don't have this problem

16:55<ccfreak2k>Make 'em queue in a lock?

16:56<Aali>since no-one can own water i guess you could just raise land around your docks

17:03<yorick>you can't
17:05<fjb>But there is a submarine in the game.
17:06<yorick>so?
17:07<fjb>You can blow up ships.
17:07<@Belugas>you can?
17:07<@Belugas>wooooo
17:08<fjb>Ofcourse. What else is a black submarine for?
17:09<nicfer>I know how to block a ship
17:09<nicfer>just cage it inside some ship depots
17:10<Aali>see, that is some creative thinking
17:10<Aali>problem solved
17:10<nicfer>I've seen it in some mp servers
17:10<nicfer>lol
17:10<nicfer>sabotagers...
17:10<nicfer>so, say thanks to unfair people
17:13<Aali>total asshole tactic - yes, unfair - not really
17:14<nicfer>one question, do ttdpatch devs help in the development of openttd?
17:15<@Rubidium>yes
17:16<nicfer>as well as the inverse method right?
17:16<nicfer>method -> way
17:16<frosch123>some patchdevs even contributed patches
17:16<@Rubidium>that too (I think)
17:16<frosch123>I do not know about the reverse
17:17<@Rubidium>frosch123: pointing out bugs/inconsistencies etc
17:17<Eddi|zuHause>80% of the development of openttd were driven by the fact that ttdpatch already had feature XYZ
17:17<frosch123>yes, I meant noone wrote code for ttdp
17:17<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: lately it seems to be shifting the other way around
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>no sane person writes code in assembler :p
17:18<nicfer>except chris sawyer
17:18<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: I have read NoAI is as big as newgrf. Haven't checked myself though
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>well... but probably s/in assembler// :p
17:19<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: no sane person writes good code ;p
17:19<Aali>NoAI is 1.3MB in patch format
17:19<fjb>We are all insane!
17:19<nicfer>this is madness!
17:19<Eddi|zuHause>are you going to deny your insanity?
17:20<nicfer>madness? this is sparta!!!
17:20<fjb>I am writing code. So I am.
17:20<nicfer>lol, I couldn't resist
17:21<@Rubidium>frosch123: linecount of newgrf* is about 15000, linecount of ai/*.?pp and ai/api/*.?pp is about 15500 (that is without generated code)
17:22<Eddi|zuHause>but newgrf* had a longer development time
17:24<@Rubidium>that's probably debateable depending on the definition of longer
17:25<Eddi|zuHause>most code metrics are debatable...
17:26<Eddi|zuHause>and newgrf* is not the only thing that was driven by prior TTDP development
17:26<fjb>The town growth challenge looks like fun. I just saw it today while looking for the rail and road type pages.
17:26<@Rubidium>one code metric I'm quite sure of: lines of comment per lines of real code ratio of NoAI is bigger than newgrf*
17:26<Eddi|zuHause>is "the town growth challenge" anything more than a wiki page?
17:27<fjb>In the beginning was a wiki page...

17:41<fjb>Hm, I had a link to Peters directory with some patches (e.g. bridges over low platforms) but I don't find it anymore.

21:20<rortom>the downfall of the british pound is not funny :(
21:21<benjamingoodger>if you take away our banks, we don't do anything
21:21<rortom>its somehoe 1.2
21:21<rortom>to euro :\
21:21<benjamingoodger>it was 1.11 earlier in the week...
21:21<rortom>ouch
21:21<rortom>i remember when it was like 1.5 or so :/
21:21<benjamingoodger>I remember when it was 1.8

21:21<benjamingoodger>we don't build anything to speak of, we don't grow anything that we export to other countries
21:22<@Rubidium>it's 2 and has been for years!
21:22<benjamingoodger>Rubidium: sterling is worth €1.18
21:22<benjamingoodger>or $1.50-ish
21:22<benjamingoodger>what has been 2 for years?
21:23<@Rubidium>not to forget that 1 dollar = 1 euro
21:23<SmatZ>it was when Euro started...
21:23<benjamingoodger>actually, the dollar is worth 78 eurocents
21:24<SmatZ>then Euro went down
21:24<SmatZ>but later dollar went even more down
21:24<SmatZ>so now Euro is worth more than dollar
21:24<benjamingoodger>yes
21:24<benjamingoodger>actually, it is more appropriate to say that the euro went down, and then went up
21:24<benjamingoodger>and then the dollar drove off a cliff
21:24<SmatZ>not really
21:25<benjamingoodger>Rubidium: what are you claiming is worth 2 of something else?
21:26<SmatZ>EUR / CZK was ~22 at best.. now it is 25... USD / CZK was ~15, now it is ~20
21:27<benjamingoodger>for me, a strong dollar is a good thing, I'm selling books in the US
21:28<rortom>for me was well
21:28<rortom>i get adsense income :\
21:28<benjamingoodger>aha
21:28<SmatZ>benjamingoodger: if you live in US, then yes :)
21:28<benjamingoodger>SmatZ: a strong dollar means that pounds are cheap to buy with my dollars
21:29<benjamingoodger>since I want to end up with as many pounds as possible, this is a good thing
21:29<rortom>same thought that i follow ;)
21:30<SmatZ>but if you want to export your books, given the price for them is 10USD, they cost now ... 6? GBP... but when USD was worth loss, it cost only 4? GBP in UK
21:30<SmatZ>so strong dollar makes it header to export (but simpler to import)
21:30<SmatZ>for you (if you live in US)
21:31<benjamingoodger>no, they're printed in tennessee
21:31<SmatZ>*loss -> less
21:31<benjamingoodger>the only importing I'm doing is importing the dollars earned from the books and selling them for pounds
21:31<SmatZ>yeah, if you make and sell the books in US, the higher price of imported books helps you
21:32<benjamingoodger>well, yes
21:33<benjamingoodger>if I'm competing against booksellers who can produce the book for $7 I don't want to be printing it in the UK for £4.50 and then shipping it to the US
