08:58:30  <TrueBrain> gooooooood morning
08:58:38  <blathijs> hello TrueBrain
09:00:21  *** Chris_Booth [] has joined #openttd
09:01:27  <TrueBrain> I hate it when there is no 720p release yet of a serie ...
09:01:30  <TrueBrain> I don't do 480 :(
09:03:11  <blathijs> TrueBrain: You're spoiled! ;-p
09:03:26  <blathijs> Perhaps there's an MPEG1 version somewhere?
09:03:48  <TrueBrain> hehe :)
09:03:51  <Xaroth> lol
09:05:18  <TrueBrain> oh well, guess have to wait :p
09:06:23  <Xaroth> more time you can spend on RE :)
09:06:37  <TrueBrain> that ... but I have to solve this stupid thing ther :p
09:06:41  <TrueBrain> or I roll out LDAP a bit more :p
09:07:15  <FauxFaux> Download it in .wav and .avi format for better quality.
09:07:33  <TrueBrain> .avi yes, I think that is so much better quality than MPEG1 ..
09:07:58  <Xaroth> TrueBrain: see of it as a challenge :)
09:08:22  * FauxFaux points out the mild satire in his statement.

10:02:42  <TrueBrain> 2 violations of coding style :o :p :p
10:02:44  <TrueBrain> hihi :)
10:03:33  *** Aali_ [] has joined #openttd
10:04:21  <blathijs> Yeah, it's been a while since my last commit I guess ;-p, Rubidium also pointed that out
10:04:44  <blathijs> TrueBrain: What are the exact violations? {} is mandatory?
10:05:18  *** Aali [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:05:19  <blathijs> and comments should not appear after a statement?
10:05:35  <TrueBrain> 1) /* comments on a newline, or // at the end
10:05:49  <blathijs> Ah, right
10:05:51  <TrueBrain> 2) if () a;\nelse b; or if () {\na;\n} else {\nb;\n}
10:05:53  <TrueBrain> :p
10:05:53  <blathijs> bah, // is ugly :-p
10:05:59  <TrueBrain> both are ugly :)
10:06:12  <TrueBrain> that is what amuzed me :) Your style is beter in my opinion .. yet .. no OpenTTD coding style ;)
10:06:31  <blathijs> That style for if isn't documented on the wiki?
10:06:47  <blathijs> Or am I totally misreading thing?
10:06:48  <blathijs> s
10:06:57  <Yexo> blathijs:
10:07:36  <TrueBrain> "In if without an else statements, a single statement may follow on the same line. "
10:07:44  <blathijs> I do have an else
10:07:56  <TrueBrain> haha, okay, it is poorly written :)
10:07:58  <blathijs> In if/else, switch, and loop statements, following statements should be inside brackets on a different line.  <-- And I guess this says the brackets are mandatory?
10:08:12  <TrueBrain> guess so ;)
10:08:18  *** Exl [] has joined #openttd
10:08:45  <TrueBrain> and the other:
10:08:47  <TrueBrain> #  Use /* */ for single line comments.
10:08:48  <TrueBrain> # Use // at the end of a command line to indicate comments.
10:08:54  <blathijs> Yeah, I believe that one :-)
10:10:03  <blathijs> is while(foo)\nbar(); allowed, or does that require brackets as well?
10:10:24  <TrueBrain> or on a single line :)
10:10:36  <Yexo> either "while (foo) bar();" or "while (foo) {\nbar();\n}"
10:10:38  <petern> brackets or single line
10:10:51  <TrueBrain> dunno if that is written down, but in general the code follow this: use \n with {}, or no \n without {}
10:13:29  *** Aali_ is now known as Aali
10:13:35  <blathijs> Right, let me state that a bit more clearly on the wiki then :-)_
10:13:59  <TrueBrain> enjoy :p
10:16:15  <blathijs> is if (foo) bar();\n else { \n baz(); \n } allowed?
10:16:23  <TrueBrain> it looks very ugly
10:16:27  <TrueBrain> but dunno
10:16:44  <TrueBrain> hmm .. BAZ is in 2 weekends :)
10:17:18  <blathijs> BAZ?
10:17:22  <TrueBrain> BAZ!
10:17:27  <TrueBrain> I believe
10:18:13  <blathijs> What is "bouldering" ?
10:19:49  <TrueBrain> Boulderen?
10:20:04  <Yexo> blathijs: for if/else blocks brackets are required
10:20:11  <TrueBrain> "klimmen zonder gordel", I always say :)
10:20:18  <blathijs> hmkay
10:20:27  <blathijs> Yexo: So even when you have a single statement?
10:20:51  <Yexo> blathijs: leaving brackest out is only allowed for single if/while/etc. statements without else block
10:21:14  <Yexo> and only if the statement following it is on the same line
10:21:26  <blathijs> 12:05:51 < TrueBrain> 2) if () a;\nelse b; <-- So this is not allowed?
10:21:36  <Yexo> nope
10:21:48  <blathijs> good, since I think it's ugly :-p
10:23:15  <OwenS> blathijs: if(a)\n\tb();\nelse\n\tc(); doesn't though
10:23:40  <blathijs> OwenS: doesn't what?
10:23:51  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r17228 /trunk/src/ (13 files in 7 dirs): -Codechange: some coding style fixes
10:23:59  <OwenS> blathijs: look ugly :p
10:24:24  <TrueBrain> "Rubidium voegt een woord bij een daad"
10:24:26  <blathijs> OwenS: Nope, but that's not allowed it seems
10:24:27  <TrueBrain> (sorry, I fail to translate)
10:24:43  <blathijs> TrueBrain: Shouldn't that be the other way around?
10:24:48  <TrueBrain> really? :p
10:24:58  *** Aali [] has quit [Quit: ragequit :@]
10:27:23  <blathijs> So, now the else b; syntax is really no longer allowed :-p
10:28:28  <blathijs> And the wiki is more clear now as well, I hope
10:29:24  <Yexo> it is, at least to me :)
10:29:27  <petern> hasn't been allowed for a long time
10:29:43  <petern> nor is
10:29:51  <petern> if (foo) {
10:29:53  <petern>   bar();
10:29:56  <petern> } else baz();

10:31:07  <petern> openttd's source is some of the nicest i've ever read
10:31:52  <blathijs> That has been different :-p

10:59:17  <petern> this is "don't be tolerant of AIs misbehaving" i guess
11:00:28  <Yexo> yes, the main problem was that a misbehaving AI could make OpenTTD crash/assert
11:02:46  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: yexo * r17233 /trunk/src/ai/ai_instance.cpp: -Fix (r17232): typo
11:05:23  <TrueBrain> I HATE FIREFOX!!!
11:05:29  <TrueBrain> it keeps changing the case of something I type
11:05:33  <TrueBrain> (a login field)
11:09:12  *** reldred1 [~reldred@] has joined #openttd
11:09:16  <petern> yeah
11:09:25  <petern> it likes to autocorrect unless you hit exactly the right place
11:12:47  <blathijs> TrueBrain: That also happens when you remove a part of a search query for example
11:13:05  <TrueBrain> but then you can abort that with hitting ESC
11:13:12  <TrueBrain> this you cannot
11:13:13  <blathijs> then you press enter to start the search, but instead FF takes the enter as "please complete my text for me!"
11:13:19  <blathijs> Ah, that is stupid
11:16:27  <TrueBrain> euhm ... I made a TINY mistake ... all emailaddresses and real names are gone from FlySpray :p
11:17:17  <blathijs> Good thing you have a backup database from yesterday, I'd say. Right? :-p
11:17:29  * TrueBrain looks the other way
11:17:39  <TrueBrain> but you make a very good point .. our backup policy does currently not include the database
11:21:21  <TrueBrain> might have to do that our DB is about 500 MiB in size ..
11:22:19  <TrueBrain> but okay, LDAP migration will happen soon anyway :)
11:23:41  <blathijs> TrueBrain: Were you planning to import accounts from the various databases we have already? Or should everybody just create a new account?
11:23:55  <TrueBrain> blathijs: I wanted to create a page where you can link existing accounts
11:26:15  <blathijs> Ah, that makes sense. Since most of those apps will still need a separate user db anyway I guess?
11:26:21  <TrueBrain> yup
11:26:27  <TrueBrain> at new login, the account is created immediatly
11:26:44  <TrueBrain> at existing login, the new data is retrieved from LDAP (and here I made the mistake by forgetting WHERE :p)

11:32:41  <TrueBrain> url?
11:32:47  <TrueBrain> (I always love vague reports :p)
11:32:58  <Yexo>
11:33:03  <Yexo> then select some task and press Show
11:33:51  <TrueBrain> Show?
11:34:15  <Yexo> yes, the button with the text "Show" on it
11:34:17  <TrueBrain> oh wait, you need to be logged in to see that page :p
11:34:23  <Yexo> yes ;)
11:34:34  <TrueBrain> cool! Somehow .. I think .. that bug has to be ther efor a long long time :p
11:34:38  <TrueBrain> as I didn't even come near that code :)
11:34:56  <Yexo> not for "a long time", or I'd have spotted it earlier
11:35:03  <Yexo> I'm pretty sure it worked a few days ago

11:46:51  <Yexo> clearing that field fixed it :)

14:18:31  <_ln> if we have a 4-digit code for opening a door, how many tries does it take to find the code by brute force?
14:20:20  <TrueBrain> O(N)
14:21:05  <TrueBrain> so assuming you do a lineair brute force, it would take the pincode amount of tries
14:21:10  <TrueBrain> I really hope it is 9999
14:21:42  <Yexo> why 9999? I'd expect 10000
14:21:47  <_ln> right, but usually the keypads look at the last four buttons you pressed, which reduces the number a lot.
14:22:12  <TrueBrain> Yexo: I said I hope the pin was 9999
14:22:19  <Yexo> aha :)
14:22:19  <TrueBrain> which means 10000 attempts are required
14:22:20  <_ln> if you press 12345, you already covered 1234 and 2345.
14:22:59  <TrueBrain> randomly insert any amount of number, if possible let a monkey do it
14:30:54  <Eddi|zuHause> _ln: some keypads i know require you to press a "start" and "accept" button
14:32:11  <_ln> i haven't seen such, but yeah why not.
14:32:37  <Eddi|zuHause> but seriously... why brute force it, when you can just watch someone type it in?
14:32:41  <TrueBrain> alarms mostly have that :) Or a 'A' or what ever
14:32:52  <TrueBrain> or browse the internet to find the mastercode? :p
14:35:28  <_ln> i was just pondering how many key presses long is the optimal sequence.

21:55:19  <TinoDidriksen> UTF-16 has surrogate pairs, which leads to not every glyph being 2 byte, but it's so rare to hit one. But even in UTF-32 you have combining you can never say that a glyph is a single code point, in any Unicode format.

22:00:12  <Eddi|zuHause> well, that i did not mean...
22:00:30  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean that the unicode space does not fit into 16 bit

22:06:08  <TinoDidriksen> That with UTF-16 you're mostly dealing in single elements, since so few characters are beyond that plane. The odds of needing surrogate pairs is low and thus easy to optimize around, but still something you have to prepare a worst case for...which you don't have to worry about in UTF-8 or UTF-32.

22:13:02  <petern> haha
22:13:33  <Eddi|zuHause> TrueBrain: the first place i'd go asking would be efnet ;)
22:13:56  <OwenS> Thinking though, it's easy... just emulate a PWM engine operating at 2Mhz
22:14:10  <petern> exactly 2?

22:14:35  <OwenS> No. 2.822Mhz, so 3 would have been better, meh
22:14:35  <TrueBrain> and it seems that tpb doesn't want to load :(
22:14:42  <OwenS> 44.1kHz * 64
22:14:44  <petern> 2.822 would be better ;)
22:14:52  <petern> *nod*
22:15:08  <Eddi|zuHause> TrueBrain: it's not in my RSSFeed, so apparently it didn't make it anywhere public
22:15:17  * OwenS shrugs as to why not 48*64...
22:15:27  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause: well, all my sources turn up dry too .. I wonder what happened
22:15:27  <Eddi|zuHause> so TPB isn't a likely place to find it
22:15:28  <petern> because CD audio is 44.1...
22:15:54  <OwenS> And DVD audio (And digital audio tape for those interested...) is 48kHz
22:16:45  <Eddi|zuHause> the 44.1kHz value is way older than digital recording
22:17:00  <petern> is it?
22:17:01  <OwenS> (DAT at 48kHz is handy though because I have some DVDs which had their sound originally mastered on DAT...)
22:18:05  <Eddi|zuHause> well, probably not, as a sampling frequency doesn't make much sense with analogue recording ;)
22:18:23  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause: it is just incredibly high :p
22:18:34  <OwenS> TrueBrain: Just read the synopsis of Leverage. You may be interested in the TV series Hustle, as it has a somewhat similar premise.
22:18:43  <TrueBrain> OwenS: seen it
22:18:47  <OwenS> Heh :p
22:18:56  <OwenS> All of it that exists I assume anyway
22:19:01  <petern> oh, it's a telly series
22:19:03  <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, you find 44.100, 22.050 and 11.025 Hz values all over the place
22:19:04  <TrueBrain> it will be really hard to tell me about a new serie ;) Hehe :) I hav eno life :) Tnx anyway ;)
22:19:36  <petern> Eddi|zuHause, , not .
22:19:41  <OwenS> TrueBrain: As one who doesn't watch much TV... doubly difficult :p
22:19:46  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: Leverage is not rarely compared with the A-Team
22:20:00  <TrueBrain> OwenS: I don't watch TV :p
22:20:12  <TrueBrain> not rarely
22:20:13  <TrueBrain> lol
22:20:34  <petern> The 44.1 stuff came from multiplying the number of video scanlines with
22:20:34  <petern> any integer that meets a reasonable bandwidth/Nyquist above 20kHz.
22:20:34  <petern> Additionally, it had to fit both PAL and NTSC number of scanlines IIRC
22:20:34  <petern> (dunno how many they have). Another practical thing was that 44100 can
22:20:34  <petern> be divided by many numbers without fractional part.
22:20:52  <petern> i boggle, tbh
22:21:05  <TrueBrain> 'many numbers' ..
22:21:09  <OwenS> Without the overscan NTSC and PAL are 480 and 576 lines respectively
22:21:13  <TrueBrain> many being more than 2, than yes
22:21:16  <petern> such as "why did it have to fit both PAL and NTSC number of scanlines" ...
22:22:11  <OwenS> "This sample rate is adapted from that attained when recording digital audio on PAL videotape with a PCM adaptor, an earlier way of storing digital audio."
22:22:24  <petern> yikes
22:22:46  <OwenS> Thats cool in a crazy way... recording PCM audio in the video portion of a VHS tape
22:23:43  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think that was really inventive... how do you think they got sound on other films?
22:24:06  <petern> heh 2*2*3*3*5*5*7*7 = 44100

22:25:22  <Eddi|zuHause> and i actually did something useful with it, once
22:25:56  <OwenS> Theres still something magic about magnetic media...
22:26:15  <Eddi|zuHause> what killed the zip drive was lack of compatibility with 1.44MB disks
22:26:26  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: That didn't save LS120
22:26:44  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause: what killed it were the poor drivers
22:26:56  <TrueBrain> you could take it with you, but installing it was a bitch!
22:27:25  <OwenS> The ATAPI version trades the "can't take it with you" for "no drivers to install" :p
22:27:25  <Eddi|zuHause> mine is a USB device, so that never was a problem for me...
22:27:33  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause: that was EXACTLY the problem for me :p
22:27:46  <TrueBrain> we had both versions, as we thought it would be useful ...
22:27:47  <petern> hmm, i've never actually seen a DAT
22:27:47  <OwenS> I'd have it plugged in if I had a spare ATA connector...
22:28:01  <petern> i suppose they're rare now too
22:28:15  <OwenS> petern: They were mostly used for audio recording for movie production - particularly animation
22:28:19  <Eddi|zuHause> i only know the term "DAT" from Zak McKracken
22:28:23  <OwenS> Today they're pretty much only in use as archives
22:28:40  <OwenS> (I.E. the devices are just arround for extracting the audio from old masters :P )
22:29:07  <petern> well
22:29:08  <Eddi|zuHause> TrueBrain: maybe i bought mine when the drivers were already improved
22:29:18  <petern> i didn't know sony had a walkman dat machine, for example...

22:37:07  <OwenS> petern: No; but the algorithm is just an accumulator where the PCM sample is added at the DSD rate and the carry is the DSD output

23:09:09  <Tefad> then you can't move your windows around.. you win
23:09:20  *** reldred1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:09:26  <Audigex> im a single-desktop windows 7 user
23:09:34  <OwenS> Then you have a window manager
23:09:35  <Tefad> ohhhhh hahaha that explains it
23:09:41  <Audigex> owens - not how he means it
23:09:43  <OwenS> A crappy one, but still a window manager
23:09:47  <Eddi|zuHause> Audigex: there are workspace-emulating programs for windows as well
23:09:59  <Tefad> yeah, windows default shell/wm is shite
23:10:01  <Audigex> there are, but my hard drive is gunked up enough already
23:10:11  <Audigex> not windows fault, before you start bashing ;)
23:10:15  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I thought in 7 MS caught up with 20(?) years of Unix multiple desktops?
23:10:18  <Audigex> i just have a lot of crap
23:10:26  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: i have no idea
23:10:29  <Audigex> and it's a feature i wish windows had
23:10:38  <Audigex> but linux just doesn't do everything i want
23:10:40  <Tefad> i've had a beef with windows since i started getting serious with my computing
23:10:49  <Tefad> anyway,, back to openttd!
23:10:58  <TrueBrain> who?
23:10:59  <TrueBrain> what?
23:11:01  <TrueBrain> where?
23:11:16  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: afair, power tools semi-officially did that under windows-xp
23:11:17  <R0b0t1> why?
23:11:18  <R0b0t1> how?
23:11:27  <TrueBrain> R0b0t1: don't be annoying
23:11:30  <TrueBrain> (hihi)
23:11:31  <Tefad> tip, if you're going to use a unix-based app and doesn't like how it interfaces in your GUI thing, try to find GUI enhancements that make the experience more bearable.
23:11:57  <Audigex> tefad, if i was going to be using it permanently, i would
23:11:59  <Tefad> taekwindow, katmouse, dragking are all fun windows utilities
23:12:04  <Audigex> for the sake of making one GRF, i'll pass
23:12:15  <TrueBrain> your loss
23:12:35  <Tefad> bblean is an ok wm replacement
23:12:39  <Audigex> i do think it's a good idea
23:12:41  <Tefad> there's more, but bleh
23:12:46  <Audigex> but i dont normally need it
23:12:57  <Audigex> and im not installing it just to use one program, once
23:13:09  <OwenS> I find GTK unbearable on Windows machines TBH anyway :p
23:13:10  <Audigex> right, now to find this palate
23:13:39  <Tefad> OwenS: i find qt unbearable on any OS.. ; )
23:14:44  <OwenS> Tefad: Document why and perhaps I can add some features to make it less so for you and push them to Nokia to see if they accept them ;-)
23:14:45  <Eddi|zuHause> i find it funny that i have KDE3 apps in a bright colour scheme and KDE4 apps in a dark colour scheme
23:14:52  *** Nite_Owl [] has quit [Quit: Read You Soon]
23:14:54  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I have the same ATM. Annoying.
23:15:03  <TrueBrain> goodnight all
23:15:08  <OwenS> Night TB
23:15:09  <Tefad> OwenS: the themes are too flashy.
23:15:11  <Audigex> okay, opened a screenshot in GIMP
23:15:13  <Audigex> nn tb
23:15:13  <Eddi|zuHause> no, it's cool...
23:15:20  <Audigex> how doo i get the palate off it?
23:15:24  <Audigex> *do
23:15:25  <Eddi|zuHause> i get reminded to which programs still need switching ;)
23:15:29  <Tefad> colormap
23:15:41  <OwenS> Tefad: I don't describe the CDE, Motif and Windows themes as flashy :p
23:16:01  <Tefad> i just want flat colors not bitmaps
23:16:15  <Tefad> does GTK even have 'themes' ?
23:16:18  <OwenS> Yes
23:16:28  <Tefad> more than just color settings?
23:16:29  <OwenS> Or have you been sitting under a rock for a decade?
23:16:51  <Tefad> dunno, i don't use many guis aside from firefox and the gimp
23:17:08  <Audigex> Audigex>	how doo i get the palate off it?
23:17:10  <Audigex> [00:15]	<Audigex>	*do
23:17:11  <Eddi|zuHause> is "sit under rock" equivalent to "use debian stable"?
23:17:14  <Audigex> anyone?
23:17:17  <TinoDidriksen> Yes
23:17:23  <Tefad> i got pissed at firefox when they added gradients to the tabs on windows
23:17:31  <OwenS> Tefad: But if you prefer the GTK theme... Set your Qt theme to "GTK+". Simples.
23:17:39  <OwenS> (And I mean the GTK themse you're using)
23:17:45  <OwenS> Tefad: OK, wtf on that?
23:17:48  <Tefad> if i'm going to do that, i'd rather be using all GTK apps
23:18:04  <Tefad> to load qt to emulate GTK seems like a waste to me
23:18:44  <Tefad> no idea what gtk theme i'm using, aside from the color description i made up a few years back
23:19:10  <OwenS> Qt's Cleanlooks style is a clone of the Gnome standard Clearlooks style; and if you want more minimalist, Windows, CDE and Motif provide that. In that order.
23:21:43  <Audigex> okay, one PCX file created - presumably with the correct palate but probably not
23:22:32  <Audigex> how do i import it? can't find anything related in the menu :(

23:36:18  <Audigex> fuck it, i'm getting errors off grfmaker and it's not loading up it's toolbars
23:36:21  <Audigex> i'll do without ?_?

23:39:45  <Audigex> i went onto the grfcreator site, followed the user guide until it went wrong, couldn't find anything about the error in it, the grfcreator wiki page or the thread
23:48:37  <Audigex> grfwizard wants ttdpatch?
23:48:56  <Audigex> why isn't there a simple way to do this?
23:49:12  <Audigex> open a png file with the correct colours, enter a handful of stats and it makes a basic train
23:49:26  <Audigex> why all these complex programs which are so concerned with action0 etc
23:49:28  <Audigex> gah
23:50:16  <Eddi|zuHause> action0 is really the most simple of all...
23:51:35  <Audigex> the point being, there's no "quickfire" way for artists to bung out a quick sprite to test it visually
23:52:23  <Audigex> i've tried grfwizard, grfmaker and wingrf
23:52:32  <Audigex> and none are in the least bit intuitive
23:52:41  <Audigex> grfwizard seemed okay, but i dont have TTDP installed
23:52:45  <Audigex> and it wont let me continue without it
