09:18:39  *** welshdragon [] has joined #openttd
09:18:58  <Celestar> peter1138: yeah, but somehow gnome-terminal fscks it up
09:19:54  *** welshdragon [] has quit []
09:29:23  <Mazur> Which direction does the light originate in openttd?
09:29:45  <Celestar> there is no "light" really.
09:29:58  <planetmaker> Mazur: 4:30
09:30:27  *** Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
09:30:32  <Celestar> but yeah, the sprites look like somewhere what planetmaker said >P
09:30:47  <Mazur> So, from the bottom-right?
09:30:54  <peter1138> all objects emit their own light :>
09:32:15  <Mazur> I ask for when I draw sprites, which sides are best lighted and which ones are in the shadow.
09:32:33  <planetmaker> Mazur: yes.
09:32:43  <Mazur> So all the funny answers were not really helping.
09:33:31  <Mazur> And then most from above or from the side?  In other words, would the top be the lighter of hte two or the side, when seen 3/4 on.
09:34:45  <Mazur> I'm guessing either equally or the top a bit lighter.
09:37:38  <Mazur> Oh well, anyway, thanks, planetmaker.
09:39:04  <planetmaker> Mazur: well, whereever the sun usually is... so ... somewhater from top at 4:30 or so
09:40:31  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur: the problem is, it's not really consistent throughout openttd itself
09:45:52  <Mazur> Well, I might as well have a go at spriting the way the consensus is going to.
09:46:38  <Eddi|zuHause> Mazur: have you checked the various grf wikis/tutorials=
09:46:53  <Pinkbeast> I don't think of most OTTD sprites as having a definite sun position. It's not like I can see the backside to know if it's lighter or darker...
09:47:14  <Celestar> :)
09:47:40  <Pinkbeast> ... and I certainly don't expect that faces will change brightness as they move from a 45- to a 90-degree angle to some hypothetical sun facing. That would look like the object itself changing colour.
09:48:19  *** blotek [] has joined #openttd
09:51:53  <Celestar> where is my openttd-opengl thingy ... :P
09:51:53  <planetmaker> Pinkbeast: you do expect the shading of vehicles to change when it turns. And they usually do
09:52:05  <planetmaker> it only shows really when not done ;-)
09:54:22  <Mazur> That's my idea, planetmaker.  Subtle, but nonetheless there.  You don;t notice it, because it's expected.
09:55:09  <Celestar> lol I still have it
09:55:11  <Celestar>
09:56:57  <MINM> is that what I think it is?
09:57:58  <Celestar> yeah
09:58:10  <Celestar> it required a Geforce 9800GTX to work properlz
09:58:14  <MINM> sweet.
09:58:17  <MINM> ...less sweet
09:58:45  <Celestar> and there was nothing on the map.
09:58:47  <Celestar> just .. the map
09:59:13  <peter1138> heh
09:59:14  <Eddi|zuHause> you have the wrong keyboard again
09:59:22  <peter1138> but it's polygons! polygons suck!
09:59:29  <Eddi|zuHause> i meant kezboard :p
09:59:31  <Celestar> lol
09:59:37  <Celestar> reallz_
09:59:38  <V453000> OpenTTD 3D? :d
09:59:45  <Celestar> peter1138: lol
09:59:47  <TrueBrain> cubicals!
09:59:53  * MINM whacks peter1138 on the head
09:59:53  <Celestar> peter1138: what else do you wanna make things of :P
10:00:13  <Celestar> I'm wondering where the fucking code is for that image :D
10:01:12  <Celestar> I know it was like 350 lines.
10:02:22  *** sla_ro|master [~slaco@] has quit []
10:09:11  <Eddi|zuHause> that's quite a lot...
10:09:24  *** welshdragon [] has joined #openttd
10:10:20  *** welshdragon [] has quit []
10:10:38  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: well 300 was about to initialize the opengl engine or so
10:10:55  <MINM> is every tile a separate surface?
10:11:37  <Celestar> MINM: two actually.
10:11:42  <planetmaker> two?
10:11:45  <MINM> 0-o
10:11:48  <Celestar> yeah. two triangles
10:12:01  <planetmaker> oh, in that screenshot
10:12:16  <Celestar> da
10:12:59  <MINM> I may be a total nub with code, but I would have built a map out of a single surface
10:13:35  <Celestar> then you have a flat surface :P
10:15:53  <Celestar> I do not have the code here :(
10:15:55  <MINM> I meant as you have in blender, and then just sculpt the shapes
10:16:35  <Celestar> at some point, you need to return to basic shapes.
10:19:26  <Celestar> can't give opengl an arbitrary shape and say "draw this" :P
10:20:09  <Eddi|zuHause> pipe it through blender! :p
10:20:30  <Celestar> lol
10:21:43  <MINM> that's probably not very beneficial to performance :/
10:21:57  <Celestar> it depends.
10:22:12  <Celestar> on the smallest zoom level, you could easily get around 250fps.
10:22:27  <Celestar> but if you zoom out to see half the map, things get ugly
10:22:33  <Celestar> you cannot just render half the map.
10:22:37  <Mazur> Hell, yes, why don't you pipe it through a ray-tracer afterwards, to get that shading there isn't.
10:22:57  <Celestar> a ray-tracer .. right ... :P
10:23:25  <Mazur> Then you could get a moving sun...
10:23:29  <Mazur> :-P
10:23:32  <Celestar> er ..
10:23:42  <Celestar> that's easy.
10:23:47  <Celestar> a light was there.
10:23:58  <Celestar> it was just omnidirectional
10:25:01  <Celestar> otherwise you couldn't see a thing :P
10:34:22  <Celestar> when you load a savegame that is missing newgrfs, are those downloaded ?
10:36:16  <planetmaker> no
10:36:35  <planetmaker> you could click on "check online content" though and then download them manually from that very point
10:36:56  <Celestar> aha.
10:37:15  <planetmaker> no un-asked phoning home ;-)
10:37:47  <Celestar> just some things are not available :P
10:38:00  <planetmaker> that might well be
10:39:16  <Terkhen> :)
10:39:56  <Celestar> whats the latest status of DBSetXL anyway?
10:42:56  <planetmaker> same as 6 years ago
10:43:24  <planetmaker> with the addition of "will never be on bananas" ;-)
10:43:52  <Celestar> lol
10:44:00  <Eddi|zuHause> Celestar: announced release date 11. november
10:44:28  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: lol of what?
10:44:37  <Eddi|zuHause> of DBSetXL 0.9
10:44:49  <Celestar> woot?
10:45:07  <Eddi|zuHause> i only believe that when it's there :p
10:45:17  <Celestar> is there a thread somewhere on the forums?
10:45:36  <Eddi|zuHause>
10:45:50  <Celestar> thanks
10:47:06  <Eddi|zuHause> more specifically:
10:48:55  <Celestar> wtf is FIRS
10:49:16  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth's industry set
10:49:37  <MINM>
10:49:39  <MINM> do want
10:49:41  <Eddi|zuHause> you really did miss a lot :)
10:50:05  *** Nite [] has joined #openttd
10:50:12  <Nite> Hi!
10:50:26  <Eddi|zuHause> MINM: ?
10:50:30  <MINM> sadly, is still the future T.T
10:50:34  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: i've been outta the loop for basically 2-3 years?
10:51:00  <MINM> Ive got marico, but that's a screenshot of an as of yet unreleased newgrf, eddi
10:51:07  <Nite> i sometimes forget what the numbers mean when you use query on "houses"
10:51:20  <Nite> "passengers: 6/8" means?
10:51:21  <Eddi|zuHause> MINM: as with pretty much all of MB's screenshots
10:51:24  <MINM> at least, that's what my limited understanding from german tells me from this thread
10:51:27  <MINM>
10:51:39  <Nite> (i browsed the wiki, but nothing there)
10:51:44  <Celestar> Nite: the "acceptance"
10:51:55  <Eddi|zuHause> Nite: the numbers of all houses must add up to at least 8/8
10:51:59  <Celestar> Nite: you need 8/8 in the catchment of the station for the thing to be accepted.
10:52:30  <Nite> ok but it does say nothing about how many pax/mail etc produced?
10:52:44  <Eddi|zuHause> Nite: no, it doesn't
10:53:00  <Nite> ic
10:54:08  <Nite> i still do not understand why there are two numbers, if "8/8" means "8" houses needed
10:54:18  <Celestar> erm.
10:54:21  <Celestar> fractions?
10:54:38  <Celestar> it's n/8ths
10:54:46  *** vorca [] has joined #openttd
10:54:56  <Eddi|zuHause> Celestar: you can't expect people to understand 3rd grade maths...
10:55:30  <Celestar> do new music sets "override" each other or add new songs to the playlist?
10:55:52  <vorca> is this the right channel for questions about compiling the ottd source?
10:55:59  <Nite> so 6/8 means you need 0,75 houses?
10:56:03  <Nite> i dont get it
10:56:38  <Celestar> vorca: go ahead
10:56:41  <Nite> i know the second number means how many buildings are needd for acceptance
10:57:02  <Nite> why is there a first number?
10:57:37  <Eddi|zuHause> Nite: the first number says "this house counts like 6 of those 8 houses"
10:57:38  <planetmaker> Nite: no. It means it supplies 6/8 = 0.75 of acceptance. 8/8 = 1.0 acceptance is needed so that the station accepts that cargo
10:57:40  <Celestar> Nite: you are aware of what a fraction is?
10:58:22  <vorca> i have win7 with vs2010, after including windosSdk07 and directx(plattfrom sdk) and ottd essentials, i get the compiler cant find "cstdio" file.
10:58:42  <Nite> thx planetmaker that is actually an explanation
10:58:56  <vorca> is there something i missed to include or some wrong settings from the project file?
10:59:17  <Yexo> cstdio is one of the most basic headers every compiler should provide
10:59:26  <Yexo> if it's missing you really messed up your vs2010 installation
10:59:29  <vorca> yes, thats why iam asking
10:59:33  <Celestar> yeah. sounds like a missing configuration or a fucked installation.
10:59:34  <Yexo> or your project settings, dunno
10:59:41  <Nite> ... so small house 2/8 + a large 6/8 would grant acceptance for example
10:59:58  <Celestar> aze
11:00:24  <planetmaker> wrong keyboard, Celestar :-P
11:00:44  <vorca> i have some trouble with different win/directx sdks, so maybe its lost somewere in include paths
11:00:45  <planetmaker> Nite: yes.
11:01:10  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: maybe he meant the (former) license plate sign of Anhalt-Zerbst? :)
11:01:21  <planetmaker> Which is exactly interesting when the total of houses in the catchment area is just about the 1.0 margin. One gets replaced and acceptance might drop below 1.0 and you might have a problem. Temporarily at least
11:01:38  <planetmaker> hehe @ Eddi|zuHause
11:02:42  <Eddi|zuHause> they made some strange rearrangements recently, so that is now merged into Anhalt-Bitterfeld (ABI) (which doesn't really make a lot of sense, as Bitterfeld never actually was in Anhalt)
11:03:38  <Nite> as i can see its always "8" "points" needed
11:10:22  <planetmaker> Is in ABI-land the local transport organized by NASA? ;-)
11:10:52  <planetmaker> :-P
11:11:15  <planetmaker> They should really make more of this name ;-)
11:12:09  <Celestar> well how do I activate the other music files
11:12:48  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: i don't really get there often, that's the other side of the river...
11:13:06  <Eddi|zuHause> Celestar: in the game settings?
11:13:09  <planetmaker> :-)
11:13:20  <planetmaker> Celestar: game options -> Music set?
11:13:35  <planetmaker> or in the juke box, if it's just the other songs
11:15:07  <Eddi|zuHause> "im anhaltinischen BÀderdreieck konnte der geÌbte Reisende sogar Bad Leuna, Bad Buna und den Luftkurort Bitterfeld am Geruch unterscheiden ..."
11:16:31  <planetmaker> No doubt about that
11:17:53  <Eddi|zuHause> if the wind was in the right direction, we could actually smell Buna from our flat...
11:18:32  <Eddi|zuHause> but the strongest smell i can remember is when we passed with the train through Böhlen (south of Leipzig)
11:21:24  <Eddi|zuHause> (of course that was usually balanced by having a look at the electrified narrow-gauge coal transportation network)
11:21:59  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: planetmaker thanks >(
11:22:31  <Celestar> hm.
11:22:39  <Celestar> would be fun if you could use all them :)
11:23:03  <Eddi|zuHause> the total number of titles is kinda hardcoded, i believe
11:23:31  <planetmaker> yes. It's 31(?) per music set. In any case 3*n + 1
11:23:32  <Celestar> heh
11:23:41  <Celestar> ....
11:23:52  <planetmaker> and iirc n=10
11:23:57  <planetmaker> you can have less, though
11:24:12  <Eddi|zuHause> fewer, actually
11:24:22  <Celestar> maybe I should change that first :P
11:24:40  <Eddi|zuHause> you can have less milk, but fewer cookies.
11:24:54  <Celestar> ffs.
11:25:06  <Celestar> wtb [proper midi shit]
11:25:22  <Celestar> the piano sounds like a rusty trumpet.
11:25:39  <Celestar> the violin sounds like a rusty trumpet.
11:25:51  <Celestar> the fluet sounds like a rusty trumpet.
11:26:03  <Celestar> only the trumpet doesn't sound like a rusty trumpet.
11:26:18  <planetmaker> loool :-)
11:27:00  <Eddi|zuHause> electronic trumpets can never sound like real trumpets, it's mathematically impossible
11:28:22  <Celestar> but they can come a BIT closer than this ..... which more reminds me of a faulty human digestive system.
11:28:40  <Eddi|zuHause> get a better soundfont then :)
11:28:43  *** dfox [] has quit [Read error: Connection timed out]
11:28:45  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: how is it mathematically impossible?
11:29:22  <peter1138> i had a nice trumpet vsti
11:29:28  <peter1138> fairly convincing
11:29:50  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: there's some difference between electronic halftones (=log_2(1/12)) and "natural" halftones
11:30:33  <planetmaker> ehm... that's not a limitation of "electronic" music. It "just" needs proper tuning there, too
11:30:59  <planetmaker> going by the pure math separation of halftones of course will be different
11:31:12  <Celestar> planetmaker: that assumes the soundfont knows what key it is just in :P
11:31:31  <planetmaker> like one could record the single notes of a trumpet and then compose music from that :-)
11:31:38  <planetmaker> Celestar: yes...
11:31:39  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: the other problem is when you create the tone by overlaying sinus-waves, you cannot mix all necessary waves in the proper way
11:31:47  <Celestar> the proble is, MIDI is ALWAYS out of tone.
11:31:50  <Celestar> tune*
11:32:04  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: usual synthesizers can only make like 4 sinus waves
11:32:06  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: how not if you have the range of ~20 ... 20k available?
11:32:19  <planetmaker> 4 sines certainly is MUCH too little, yes
11:32:19  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean simultaneously
11:32:24  <planetmaker> yes, sure
11:32:26  <Celestar> otoh.
11:32:40  <peter1138> MIDI is ALWAYS out of tone < what?
11:32:45  <planetmaker> but... every better wave generator allows arbitrary wave generation...
11:33:04  <Celestar> peter1138: The human ear tends to compress frequencies.
11:33:26  <Celestar> peter1138: very low frequencies are increased, very high frequencies are compressed.
11:33:38  <Celestar> peter1138: that's why you cannot "tune" a piano with a tuning device.
11:33:48  <peter1138> MIDI specifies notes, not frequencies
11:33:56  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: and then real trumpets have bends and bruises that "spoil" the 'pure sinus' waves
11:33:57  <Celestar> yeah.
11:34:01  <peter1138> it's up to the synth how to translate note to frequency
11:34:08  *** dfox [] has joined #openttd
11:34:10  <peter1138> that's not a property of MIDI
11:34:23  <peter1138> (MIDI does support detuning of course)
11:34:30  <Celestar> peter1138: yeah. but all MIDI implementations an octave is EXACTLY 1:2
11:34:40  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: you can de-compose any sound in pure sinus waves
11:34:48  <peter1138> well... you haven't played with the synths i've played with
11:34:49  <planetmaker> *sine
11:35:10  <peter1138> any good piano tuner knows that an octave should be slightly off 2:1
11:35:20  <planetmaker> :-)
11:35:24  <peter1138> thus, any good synth should also do similar
11:35:32  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but when you have "partial" sinus waves, that don't last over the full time of the tone, you get too many to model correctly
11:35:33  <Celestar> peter1138: they do not.
11:35:36  <peter1138> depends what its synthesizing
11:35:42  <peter1138> Celestar, not all do, but not all don't
11:35:47  <Eddi|zuHause> there is no such thing as a "perfect" model
11:36:09  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: as said, that's only a limitation of cheap stuff
11:36:17  <peter1138> reasons why i dislike the scott-joplin music set for openttd:
11:36:22  <Noldo> how does the sampling work in human ear?
11:36:32  <peter1138> it's pitch perfect, it's velocity perfect, it's timing perfect.
11:36:35  <peter1138> it's perfect.
11:36:36  <peter1138> it's ugly.
11:36:40  <planetmaker> Noldo: much more complicated than easily explained here ;-)
11:37:02  <Celestar> peter1138: I'm just listening into it.
11:37:12  <Celestar> Noldo: it's  ... difficult ...
11:37:30  <Celestar> Noldo: well BASICALLY it is some kind of FFT. but then there's the brain :D
11:37:35  <peter1138> the velocity & timing being perfect is more of an issue than pitch, mind you
11:37:39  <Noldo> :-)
11:37:47  <Celestar> peter1138: it makes me wanna vomit
11:38:38  <peter1138> whereas when i'm controlling midi with my keyboard, it's definitely not velocity & timing perfect
11:39:34  <Celestar> one would hope so
11:39:46  <Celestar> but the OpenMSX isn't bad.
11:39:53  <peter1138> all the editors do quantizing o_O
11:40:00  <Eddi|zuHause> never listened to either
11:40:00  <peter1138> openmsx isn't bad indeed
11:40:09  <peter1138> probably because it's not just one instrument
11:40:14  <planetmaker> Noldo: we once had a colloquium talk on the "physics of hearing". It was a great talk. But allegedly only scratching the surface.
11:40:25  <planetmaker> Google tells me there are whole lecture (series) about this topic alone
11:40:40  <peter1138> the scott joplin set does stupid stuff like changing the global volume instead of adjusting velocity
11:40:49  <peter1138> that's not how it's supposed to happen :S
11:41:35  <planetmaker> OpenMSX certainly has good and bad pieces... as there's a lot of different artists involved
11:42:20  <Celestar> aze
11:42:59  <planetmaker> peter1138: if you can and want to compose and perform... one certainly might find a spot in that project ;-)
11:43:09  <peter1138> no, i can't
11:43:27  <planetmaker> no midi output?
11:43:47  <peter1138> i can't compose!
11:44:01  <Noldo> just slam your on the keyboard
11:44:03  <peter1138> and the stuff i do play would sound like crap on a standard soundfont synth
11:45:22  <vorca> i think the best is i reinstall my vs2010 version.

12:57:45  <planetmaker> Celestar, it's something which is a violation of your constitutional rights. In principle criminal investigators are interested in this kind of stuff

12:58:42  *** blotek [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:58:56  <Celestar> planetmaker: yeah
13:03:15  <Yexo> planetmaker: it's only a violation of rights if it actually happens. Having the option is (as far as I know) still not illegal
13:03:50  *** welshdragon [] has joined #openttd
13:04:59  <Celestar> no it's not.

13:05:24  <planetmaker> the mere presence might not be.
13:05:52  <planetmaker> Celestar, that's a difference. A microphone on its own doesn't allow remote surveilance
13:06:07  <planetmaker> Only in conjunction with logging or remote operation
13:06:57  <Celestar> yeah. theoretically every IP phone allows surveillance.
13:07:08  <planetmaker> And it's in any case criminal if done w/o the knowledge of the employees. And only allowed in some situations like analysis of customer calls
13:07:38  <Celestar> log in to the phone (telnet, ssh) and make a call to somewhere.

13:40:04  <planetmaker> peter1138, yes, that's what stopped me with that patch, too
13:40:56  *** dfox [] has joined #openttd
13:40:56  <planetmaker> But I didn't find any viable hints on where to find / store / assume soundfonts and whether one can assume any sane default at all
13:40:59  <Celestar> hm.
13:41:05  <peter1138> i don't think you can assume
13:41:09  <Celestar> doesn't sound much better....
13:41:18  <Celestar> maybe I should try my external sound card at some point.
13:41:22  <planetmaker> thus probably the only option is to make it a cfg setting
13:41:36  <planetmaker> which the patch author did not supply ;-)
13:41:39  <peter1138> your external sound card has a hardware synth?
13:41:56  <peter1138> planetmaker, imho, cfg settings are wrong for drivers
13:42:35  <peter1138> it's already possible to set the driver's parameters
13:42:37  <Celestar> peter1138: yeah.
13:42:41  <Celestar> some terratec monster.
13:42:43  <peter1138> i.e. musicdriver = "extmidi:cmd=pmidi"
13:46:05  <Celestar> FF7 had a pretty decent software midi sequencer
13:46:11  <Celestar> by Yamaha
13:47:08  <Eddi|zuHause> we need soundfontconfig! :p
13:48:57  <planetmaker> peter1138, well, but a sound font is - as far as I saw it - a setting similar to a (type) font. Hence the similarity in names, too. Availability can vary by the user's install and preferences.
13:49:26  <planetmaker> But of course we can't supply any sound font along with openttd. It'd merely sixfold the download size...
13:49:29  <planetmaker> at least
13:49:50  <planetmaker> and we store font config in the cfg, too
13:49:57  <planetmaker> As we do music, graphics and sfx config
13:50:21  <planetmaker> and blitter
13:50:34  <peter1138> true
13:50:41  <planetmaker> it doesn't mean we should store the actual driver. Just the sound font
13:50:49  <peter1138> you can't specify a soundfont for all music drivers though
13:51:03  <peter1138> for instance, if i use an OPL3 synth, a soundfont is useless
13:51:09  <planetmaker> yep. But then it's graciously ignored
13:51:34  <planetmaker> as are my newgrf presets which I often don't use
13:51:45  <planetmaker> openttd is very liberal (luckily) what it allows
13:51:52  <planetmaker> It only adds to the cfg. But doesn't remove
13:57:04  <peter1138> well
13:57:15  <peter1138> fluidsynth is the only one that needs to be supplied with a soundfont
13:57:28  *** dfox [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:58:15  <planetmaker> yes, sure. But still IMHO it wouldn't hurt to store the user's preference for a sound font in the cfg
13:58:28  <planetmaker> those who don't bother don't need to care. It won't hurt them
13:58:49  <planetmaker> but it also doesn't answer the question for reasonable defaults
13:59:12  <planetmaker> it just makes it somewhat easier to use as I'd not have to specify a SF each time when using that driver

14:02:40  <Yexo> how would you specify which of the sound drivers is used?
14:02:51  <planetmaker> same as now?
14:02:56  <peter1138> using sounddriver = as normal
14:03:19  <peter1138> basically extend the driver parameter system to also include settings from the config
14:03:28  <planetmaker> though one could devise a setting like sound=drivername
14:03:42  <planetmaker> and video=sdl
14:03:46  <planetmaker> or so
14:03:53  <peter1138> what's wrong with sounddriver=? heh
14:04:02  <planetmaker> well. yes :-)
14:04:11  <planetmaker> but that's the same as music driver, not? ;-)
14:04:27  <planetmaker> but sounddriver= and videodriver= is better
14:04:32  <planetmaker> so: yes
14:04:45  <peter1138> i'm confused. we already have sounddriver, videodriver and musicdriver

17:55:43  <Alberth> 0/0 == 1  ????   who was your math teacher?
17:55:55  <z-MaTRiX> any number / itself = 1
17:56:04  <z-MaTRiX> 0 is a number
17:56:21  <Alberth> except division by 0 is undefined
17:56:29  <Eddi|zuHause> where's that stab-over-IP device?
17:56:51  <z-MaTRiX> any number divided by zero is infinity
17:57:27  <Eddi|zuHause> so 0/0 is both 1 and infinity!
17:57:39  <z-MaTRiX> no, its division by itself
17:58:24  <z-MaTRiX> but not bad question <;
17:58:46  <__ln__> z-MaTRiX: mathematicians of the world are grateful that you solved the question they've been pondering for so long -- what's something divided by zero.
17:58:53  <z-MaTRiX> ;>>
17:59:48  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: in fact, you can make 0/0 be _any_ number
17:59:54  <Alberth> z-MaTRiX: next problem, what's sqrt(-1) ?   (this one is actually easy :p )
18:00:00  <z-MaTRiX> a/a = 1
18:00:13  <z-MaTRiX> well thats been solved already
18:00:20  <Eddi|zuHause> (2a)/a = 2
18:00:21  <z-MaTRiX> sqrt(-1) = i
18:00:35  <z-MaTRiX> (sqrt(-1)*sqrt(-1))=-1
18:00:37  <Alberth> :)
18:00:42  <Eddi|zuHause> for a=0 you have (2*0)/0 = 0/0 = 2
18:00:57  <z-MaTRiX> Eddi|zuHause<< no, make it 2*(a/a) = 2
18:01:00  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: but what if sqrt(-1) = -i?
18:01:26  <z-MaTRiX> Eddi|zuHause<< thats an imaginary number
18:01:40  <z-MaTRiX> called i
18:01:50  <Alberth> no, Eddi|zuHause is not an imaginary number, I am sure!
18:02:18  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: but (-i)*(-i) = -1 as well. so sqrt(-1) must be -i
18:02:23  <z-MaTRiX>
18:02:54  <frosch123> sqrt(x) is not a number, but a set of two numbers
18:03:07  <frosch123> where {0, 0} counts as set of two numbers :p
18:04:15  <z-MaTRiX> Eddi|zuHause<< yes
18:04:52  <z-MaTRiX> (-sqrt(-1)) * (-sqrt(-1)) = -1
18:04:58  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: it's even more, when you count all the "equivalent" representations of r*e^(phi*i) separately
18:05:05  <z-MaTRiX> (-sqrt(-1)) * sqrt(-1) = 1
18:05:25  <Alberth> so -1 is 1
18:05:42  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: that would not be related to the sqrt, but could be said about any number
18:05:51  <z-MaTRiX> still imaginary number :)
18:06:05  <frosch123> z-MaTRiX: sqrt(-1) * sqrt(-1) != sqrt(-1)^2
18:06:46  <z-MaTRiX> False
18:07:03  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: that is fairly relevant once you speak about holomorphic functions. e.g. the holomorphic expansion of sqrt to some subset of |C
18:07:18  <frosch123> the cross product of two sets is not the element-wise square of a set
18:07:59  <z-MaTRiX> -i = 1 / sqrt(-1)
18:10:46  <frosch123> z-MaTRiX: what's the third root of -1 ?
18:10:59  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: your way only works if you take the holomorphic expansion of sqrt to the plane |C \ (-oo,0) with sqrt(1)=1
18:11:22  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: but there are infinitely many holomorphic expansions of sqrt
18:12:09  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: almost none of which result in sqrt(-1) = i
18:12:48  <z-MaTRiX> -(1^(-3)) = -1 ; -(1^3) = -1
18:13:49  <Eddi|zuHause> z-MaTRiX: if you say that in a maths exam, you almost automatically fail.
