07:07:53  <dih> good morning ladies
07:14:48  <nighthawk_c_m> morning
07:16:46  <moot> sup
07:17:33  <dih> nothing!
07:18:28  *** snack2 [] has joined #openttd
07:23:36  <Eddi|zuHause> soup in the morning?
07:24:01  <Forked> .. wondering what happened to Canada
07:24:12  <planetmaker> (味噌汁 ?
07:24:21  <planetmaker> and moin :-)
07:24:48  <planetmaker> can be delicious. But needs getting used to.
07:25:12  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: did you look at the date? :p
07:25:45  <Forked> I have no problem with the police busting people for selling pirated copies of stuff, but 10 years for modifiying a product you've bought?
07:26:08  <Forked> eddi: yeah, but:

07:51:58  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: i don't know the law they are trying to enforce there...
08:09:24  <dih> give the queen a call and ask what she thinks about it ^^
08:11:28  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: if that is true at all, they don't seem to have a strong case...
08:11:48  <Eddi|zuHause> ... hm... apparently firefox now has a majority market share in europe...
08:11:51  *** kannerke [~pvandenb@] has joined #openttd
08:13:22  <Eddi|zuHause> (this statistics probably depends heavily on the websites)
08:17:55  <peter1138> modifying computers too? heh
08:19:24  <planetmaker> <-- Browser stats from our openttdcoop sites @ Eddi|zuHause
08:19:31  <Forked> 342.1 (1) Every one who, fraudulently and without colour of right,
08:19:40  <Forked> (a) obtains, directly or indirectly, any computer service,
08:19:40  <Forked> (b) by means of an electro-magnetic, acoustic, mechanical or other device, intercepts or causes to be intercepted, directly or indirectly, any function of a computer system,
08:19:54  <Forked> "fraudulently and without colour of right"
08:20:00  <planetmaker> they seem to be highly non-representative.
08:20:53  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: it's a very clear majority... representative or not...
08:21:41  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: 5 years ago, it would have been 95% internet explorer...
08:21:46  <planetmaker> yup indeed
08:22:47  <Eddi|zuHause> <Forked> "fraudulently and without colour of right" <-- exactly, means "computers you don't own"... which obviously does not apply here...
08:23:29  <Forked> I'm not sure anymore if you actually own the gaming console in some countries anymore, or you just pay for the right to use it
08:23:50  <Jolteon> Forked: WHAT?
08:23:52  <Jolteon> Pssh
08:23:59  <Jolteon> if i'm paying > £100, i expect to own it.
08:24:04  *** welshdragon [~markmac@] has joined #openttd
08:24:18  <Forked> I own my xbox, not worried about that. Then again I do not live in Canada ;-)
08:24:35  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: there's generally two different kinds of owning... and at least one kind is "who holds it in his hand is the owner"
08:25:25  * Jolteon picks up Eddi and holds him.
08:25:27  <Forked> I would not look at my self as the actual owner of an item that I am not, by law, allowed to do whatever I want with
08:25:28  <Jolteon> You're mine :>
08:26:17  <moot> Yeah, these days, even stuff you pay for still belongs to the company you bought it from
08:26:23  <moot> digital media is the start
08:26:31  <moot> but eventually it's going to progress to physical things as well
08:27:05  <moot> the troubling part is the average consumer has no idea what that means
08:27:12  <moot> doesn't know that it's bad
08:27:16  <peter1138> and doesn't care
08:27:17  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: "whatever I want" always has been bounded by laws...
08:27:18  <moot> so the general market will encourage that trend
08:27:22  <planetmaker> <Forked> I would not look at my self as the actual owner of an item that I am not, by law, allowed to do whatever I want with <-- if you rent an item you're one kind of owner. If you rent out the item, you're the other kind of owner
08:27:29  <planetmaker> I don't know the legal terms for both in English
08:27:53  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: you cannot simply run over a human with a car, "just because you want"
08:28:05  <Forked> eddi: As long as it does not hurt others :p and me modding my xbox so it can run an emulator that can run a SNES game I have bought and paid for ..
08:28:32  <Forked> and running over a person with my car is not really that close to opening up my xbox and making it do things that was not intended by the company that produced it
08:28:40  <moot> Forked: but you're hurting microsoft because you're not giving them money for running that emulator
08:28:48  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: i did agree there... that is very obviously not the intention of the law
08:28:50  <Forked> they are not offering me the emulator
08:29:03  <Forked> so how does it hurt them?
08:29:24  <moot> because you aren't giving them more money
08:29:28  <moot> It's ridiculous
08:29:46  <Forked> if microsoft had actually had linux support from the beginning the xbox360 would not have been cracked
08:30:00  <Forked> I understand that they of all companies do not have that support, but still
08:31:04  <planetmaker> Forked, I doubt that it wouldn't have been cracked with linux support. But still...
08:32:44  <Forked> sure, the DVD thing might have happened
08:33:01  <Forked> but it would not have been "rooted" as it is now, at least not so 'fast'
08:33:07  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: on the contrary. the PS3 was the last console to be cracked, simply because there was no need to do so, because it already had linux support
08:33:22  <Forked> the ps3 is not cracked
08:33:36  <Forked> not properly anyway, but Sony are or has already removed the linux support
08:33:37  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, "was" ;-)
08:33:48  <Eddi|zuHause> Forked: not fully, but the need constantly rises...
08:34:10  <planetmaker> but sure yes, the incentive drops. But then there are sufficient people out there who do exactly those things as a sport. And hell, why not?
08:34:17  <planetmaker> It's a kind of advanced riddle.
08:34:32  <Forked> the pirates simply do not have the skill/patience that some of the "I want linux on that thing, even if I have 3 computers I already run it on" hardware hackers have
08:36:11  <planetmaker> contrary to some of those hacks required it was moderately easy to install chess on a voting machine
08:37:22  <Eddi|zuHause> <planetmaker> but sure yes, the incentive drops. But then there are sufficient people out there who do exactly those things as a sport. And hell, why not? <-- in case of the PS3, it was very obvious that it was not "sufficient"
08:39:00  <planetmaker> :-)
08:41:17  <moot> yeah
08:41:22  <moot> voting machines are ridiculously vuln
08:41:28  <moot> it's retarded
08:43:01  <planetmaker> luckily they're for now forbidden (again). At least for now.
08:43:26  <planetmaker> at least where I live :-)
08:47:18  <Eddi|zuHause> they're not "forbidden", the constitutional court said "every (potentially computer-illiterate) must be capable of reconstructing the counting of the votes", which practically no computer can achieve...
08:47:43  <Eddi|zuHause> +citizen...
08:48:16  <planetmaker> ok, I should have written "all currently existing" :-)
08:48:44  <planetmaker> And that ruling sounds quite sane to me :-)
08:49:37  <planetmaker> I just wonder when people will need special training with a ballpen in order to go voting ;-) as handwring is being abandoned ;-)
08:52:26  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: of course, that includes a shift in the general population, which might mean the court ruling should be viewed in a different light

10:00:36  <dih> fuck.... 2152 translations to the same language distributed over 179 files
10:00:58  <Jupix> is there a better way for figuring out whether some 268 files exist than looping file_exists through them?
10:00:58  <dih> yes - they are all included seperately as they are needed
10:01:23  <dih> no wonder, the translater does over 110 x a stat to see if the file exists before it tries to include it!
10:01:55  <dih> Jupix: 70 x file_exists goes on the account of 'autoloader'
10:02:05  <dih> 110 x file_exists for the crap translator
10:02:18  <dih> and no - we cannot just use gettext.....
10:02:20  <dih> grrrr
10:02:37  <Jupix> :D
10:02:55  <__ln__> why not embrace the OpenTTD translation system with webtranslator
10:02:56  <dih> wtf am i doing here?
10:03:38  <Rubidium> typing nonsense
10:03:44  <dih> ^^
10:04:11  <dih> and how are the translations handled?

10:04:17  <dih> :-S
10:05:06  <Jupix> why not just write an article for TDWTF
10:05:16  <Jupix> sounds like a nice addition
10:07:44  <lennard> dih: so cache the results of the stats in a memcached :P
10:08:58  <dih> yeah - that makes it faster ^^
10:09:21  <dih> we do have a memcached but i am not sure that will impfove speed _that_ much
10:10:11  <lennard> well, not the first time :)

12:09:13  <TrueBrain> it is faster than Shakespeare
12:09:38  <Noldo> fast to get fed up with

12:13:26  <peter1138> about a useful
12:17:33  <peter1138> *as
12:19:06  <Rubidium> so it's a language for programming very fast, not for creating fast programs... just for creating programs fast
12:20:03  <nighthawk_c_m> if coded right I think it is quite fast - and far more flexible then html - unless one is a really good html coder
12:20:15  <SpComb> har har
12:21:02  <peter1138> but php is infinitely slower than html :)

12:55:35  <OwenS> Hmm... does that mean Brainfuck is the language with the fastest interpreter ever :-P?
12:57:54  <OwenS> I suppose if you go by instructions/second, not much can beat BF, but BF's useful IPS is abysmal :p

13:06:26  *** bryjen [~bryjen@] has joined #openttd
13:08:28  <Eddi|zuHause> if you encode the brainfuck instructions in 3 bits, you have a great machine language for a simple processor
13:10:28  <Eddi|zuHause> then you can start adding "useful" features like cache, registers, indirect addressing
13:11:46  <Eddi|zuHause> and piece by piece you add more complex operations, like arithmetical or logical operations
13:13:39  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause, BF is a turing tarpit... I think one would be better off starting from somewhere less so :p
13:14:43  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: i don't see why that has to be...
13:15:17  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause, by the time you'd added useful instructions, the only BF ones worth keeping would be + and - :P
13:16:10  <OwenS> And those only if you didn't have a reasonable add literal/sub literal
13:16:23  <Eddi|zuHause> no, those are the ones easiest to throw away
13:17:05  <Eddi|zuHause> you need register operations, so < and > you can keep, + and - are "read" "modified version of < and >" and "store"
13:17:44  <Eddi|zuHause> so you have one register for the pointer, and one "cache" register that contains the value of the current memory location
13:18:01  <Mazur> Is there some way to pinpoint a spot one missed when converting to electrified rail?
13:18:25  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur: sadly, no.
13:18:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur: there was a very promising "tile highlighting" patch, but the creator disappeared before finishing it
13:20:00  <Mazur> No brightly coloured NewGRF set in which each type of rail has a distictive colour?
13:22:43  <Mazur> Would that not be the easiest method?  Or am I talking bollocks?
13:23:01  <OwenS> Mazur, electrified rails don't have special graphics
13:23:05  <OwenS> They're overlays
13:23:20  *** ecke [] has joined #openttd
13:23:26  <Mazur> Brightly coloured overlays, then?
13:47:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur: if you use dutchcatw.grf, the catenary is more visible than the default one
13:50:10  <Mazur> I thought of a simple method:
13:51:32  <Mazur> Isolate the problem area, (or part of it), remove signals if necessary, set up waypoints with loops behind them, and send a dedicated temporary car-less engine to the waypoint.
13:52:21  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur: of course you can make a grf that makes electrified rails in "alarm colours", but the problem then is that you cannot switch between "normal" and "highlighting" mode, like you can with track reservation or transparency

14:14:39  <welshdragon> no probs

14:18:21  *** Adambean [] has joined #openttd
14:18:30  <nighthawk_c_m> it all is less problematic eith the 32 bit graphics as you can zoom in closer
14:18:31  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... if i have a map, and it says "15 Miles make one Degree", how much is one mile?
14:18:47  <nighthawk_c_m> 1.6km i think
14:19:03  <Eddi|zuHause> nighthawk_c_m: there are many different miles
14:19:14  <Eddi|zuHause> nighthawk_c_m: you're talking about the "british imperial" mile
14:19:24  <welshdragon> nautical mile?
14:19:44  <Eddi|zuHause> i believe one degree is 111 km
14:19:48  <Eddi|zuHause> so...
14:19:54  <Eddi|zuHause> @calc 111/15
14:19:54  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: 7.4
14:20:03  <nighthawk_c_m>
14:20:03  <nighthawk_c_m> 1 nautical mile = 1.85200 kilometers
14:20:07  <Eddi|zuHause> 7.4 km...
14:20:33  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause: 1 degree can't be put in km, it depends on where you are :)
14:20:49  <TrueBrain> 55m at 70N, 90m at 90N I believe :p
14:20:58  <TrueBrain> euh, s/90N/50N/
14:21:07  <nighthawk_c_m> 0.o
14:21:38  <Eddi|zuHause> TrueBrain: longitude degree varies, latitude degree is constant...
14:21:46  <TrueBrain> you didn't specify :p
14:21:58  <Eddi|zuHause> the map didn't either ;)
14:22:05  <TrueBrain> so it is an ambigious map :)
14:22:18  <Eddi|zuHause> but using a varying degree without specification is a bit useless :)
14:22:29  <TrueBrain> if you zoom in enough, it will be fine
14:23:29  <Eddi|zuHause>
14:23:48  <Eddi|zuHause> 7.4km sounds like the right range :=)
14:23:50  <Mazur> Can anyone suggest a good page about using a NewGRF?  How to load/activate etc.  All  the basics for an OpenTTD newbie.
14:24:35  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur:

15:36:03  <Rubidium> OwenS: it actually makes sense
15:36:21  <KenjiE20> you have to hit close door and the desired floor together iirc
15:36:54  <Rubidium> if the elevator is full, waiting for a timeout to close the door and to stop at floors just to wait for the timeout makes it less efficient

17:47:30  <Quibus> :P
17:49:41  <Rubidium> just blame Gentoo...
17:51:36  <Rubidium> other distros seem to be naming it openttd-open[gsm][sf]x (other being Fedora, Debian, (Open)SUSE)
17:52:00  <Eddi|zuHause> <-- hey, this bug is great: "This script wiped my harddrive" - "Don't do that then" :p
17:52:53  *** Phazorx [~pavelkoll@] has joined #openttd
17:53:00  <Phazorx> evening
17:53:14  <Phazorx> got a dev question
17:53:22  <Rubidium> 42!
17:53:47  <Phazorx> i knew i could count on you Rubi :)
17:55:38  <Phazorx> part one: how simple/complex would be to dumb down one of existing PFs (original is most likely candidate) to stop behaving like destination based and replace al logic by situational random switches on split based on presented options?
17:56:11  <Phazorx> so essentially pf would just move train within limits of game engin towards next green signa
17:56:23  <Phazorx> stop if there are none and choose randomly one if there are many
17:56:23  *** SekiSelu [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:56:34  <Rubidium> just let them return "there's not path"

17:56:46  *** kyo313 [~kyo@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
17:57:03  <Phazorx> Rubidium: well, performance optimization is one of key aspects of this question
17:57:06  <Rubidium> although, that probably won't work right
17:57:17  *** SekiSelu is now known as Guest1769
17:57:31  <Phazorx> so i'd rather not have any patching at all since none is needed
17:58:23  <Phazorx> this comes from cooper's realm where we sometimes use crazy networks, which guide trains by logic and have no need for PF  such (trains dont even have orders somtimes)
17:58:32  *** DaleStan_ [] has joined #openttd
17:58:33  *** DaleStan is now known as Guest1770
17:58:33  *** DaleStan_ is now known as DaleStan
17:59:25  <Rubidium> Phazorx: having no orders gives you the 'random' behaviour you're probably looking for, but it won't work right in ALL cases
18:00:46  <Phazorx> we did notice that, and random behavior is not all that is desired, chances are - by not having PF overhead we wul be able to squeeze more fun out of the game, as in d more and go further
18:01:26  <Phazorx> so, a very silly PF would be nice
18:02:08  <Phazorx> think about simple p2p networks that default (and most current) AIs build - the get no benefit of PF features either
18:02:53  <Phazorx> essentiall complicated PF routines are mosty trying to overcome network design flaws of some kind at larger scle of things
18:04:03  *** Guest1770 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:07:20  <Phazorx> anyway... that was part one... which is largely based on assumption of it being possible and easy... as well as that someone is willing to look into that
18:07:40  <Phazorx> part two is related to time estimates and chances of that ever making to trunk :o)
18:08:32  <Phazorx> which is quite a bit to ask for... but wouldnt make sense to make it another custom patch for coopers and deny it to public
18:10:04  <Alberth> it wouldn't, but that does not mean it should be added to trunk. Publishing the patch at a forum would be sufficient
18:10:45  <Alberth> lots of custom openttd versions are being built and distributed that way
18:10:57  <Rubidium> I don't know what potential problems you're going to cause with a "no order, no pathfinder, let funky signalling figure it out" approach
18:11:20  <Rubidium> so, can't say anything useful about chances or time estimates
18:13:48  <Phazorx> Alberth: openttdcoop's public server uses official revisions only, that way we can reach more players
18:15:02  *** Fast2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:15:18  <Phazorx> Rubidium: i was under assumption that people who look into code pretty much every day would have a clue about things like that... but to me it looks like removing things mostly and hacking it fugly rather than developing a new and shiny PF
18:16:17  <Alberth> main problem is not the change itself, it is deciding there are no other bad effects, I think
18:16:53  <Phazorx> there are bad effects - trains might not get where they normally would and are lost by definition
18:17:05  <Rubidium> Phazorx: what you're asking breaks a lot of assumptions OpenTTD is built upon and when breaking assumptions all bets are off
18:17:34  <Phazorx> Rubidium: is the state machine of moving vehicles within engine documented anywhere in some form i can look at?
18:17:38  <Rubidium> it took almost two years to revamp the window system and that "only" assumed a fixed size for widgets
18:17:55  <Phazorx> heh, visual changes are known to do that :)
18:18:09  <Phazorx> and window framework is no little deal
18:18:21  <Rubidium> Phazorx: no; actually, there are no moving vehicles without engine
18:18:46  <Rubidium> hmm, or did you mean another "engine"?
18:18:55  <Phazorx> i mean game engine :)
18:19:03  <Phazorx> rather than choochoo engine
18:20:13  <Alberth> simplest way may be to start at the PF, and trace back what uses it
18:21:11  <Rubidium> in any case there's probably no clear documentation of (all) aspects of vehicle movement
18:21:30  <Rubidium> even then there're many different parts about it that you probably don't care about
18:21:32  <Phazorx> to me simpliest way always was to comprehend what people who did the base for it wrote
18:21:50  <Phazorx> Rubidium: agreed
18:22:16  <OwenS> Phazorx, I'd guess a bunch of it was written by people who are no longer developers ;-)
18:22:17  <Phazorx> but i would like to know what things are in PF domain and how often it is being talked to
18:22:18  <Rubidium> anyhow, I'd say ChooseTrack

18:26:44  *** DaleStan_ is now known as DaleStan
18:28:36  <Eddi|zuHause> why not simply write a new pathfinder, and hook that in the existing abstraction?
18:28:44  *** ajmiles [] has joined #openttd
18:29:16  <Eddi|zuHause> as far as i have understood you simply want it to do a BFS to look whether the next signal is green

18:34:01  *** SekiSelu [] has joined #openttd
18:34:43  <Eddi|zuHause> the trickiest part i presume to be depot handling
18:35:30  <Eddi|zuHause> (you want to find depots even if they're not in the current block, because the check is probably not done all the time)
18:37:16  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: but... the signals should guide the vehicle to the depot, not the vehicle itself
18:37:30  <Phazorx> hmm... depots are probably something tricky
18:38:17  <Phazorx> since they are per train thing rather than per train stream
18:39:21  <Phazorx> but easiest would be with per block check on top level
18:39:36  <Phazorx> would work even better for all practical usage of depoting trains anyway
18:39:54  <Phazorx> it doesnt matter which depot train goes in for a service or an upgrade
18:40:24  <Phazorx> am i correct assuming that currently "send to depot" order is a generic order issues aside of schedule?

18:40:35  <Phazorx> *issued
18:43:07  <Eddi|zuHause> "Go to depot" is triggered by three situations: a) player manually gives a depot order from the train window, b) train has service order in vehicle's schedule, c) every few days the train checks whether it needs servicing, searches a nearby depot, and if it found that, issues service-in-depot
18:44:22  <Eddi|zuHause> a) can also be triggered from other places like the train list
18:45:42  *** Guest1773 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:48:00  <Phazorx> Eddi|zuHause: that's a trigger, but what is th mechanism under it?
18:48:15  <Phazorx> a temporary current order is added to the schedule queue?
18:48:39  <Eddi|zuHause> Phazorx: just do what i said earlier, the source code is better structured than you think :)
18:48:42  <Phazorx> so a PF normally tries to path to it regulary as train moves?
