This page documents some of the amusing things said in #parrot. It's not really useful, but it helps with -Ofun. Feel free to add your own quotes (preferably from #parrot or parrot-devel).
Whiteknight> i'm going to solve this issue if it kills me Whiteknight> and then I'm going to be all like "oh noes, it killz me! LOL"
particle> don't touch that code! it worked yesterday. mostly.
chromatic> Mac OS X will eventually provide a single header, called "oohshiny.h" with a single function called "NSPushCandyColoredButton()". Coke> I am drooling in anticipation of how shiny that button is!
Coke> ok, tickets are cheap, but they're not as cheap as your mom
cotto> now to tackle "DOD" moritz> department of defense? ;-) szbalint> dangers of drinking Infinoid> Donuts On Demand chromatic> Donut Order Detection moritz> doughnuts of desaster szbalint> DOD Ought Dereference chromatic> DOD of Recursing Daemons Infinoid> devil's own doggy Infinoid> deathtrap of despair
particle> $haze_the_new_guy->() whiteknight> am I still the new guy? particle> if you have to ask... whiteknight> damnit
particle> i'll work on a shell alias for maek without a macarthur grant. particle> i'm not proud. chromatic> Scab. You're pushing wages down.
chromatic> ...and I'll slap the hand of anyone who suggests that we need to *mark* and *sweep* these elements -- if you're lucky. If you're not lucky, I'll take away your birthday.
Whiteknight> well, I'm sorry to hear that. Speaking of wireless networking, I'm about 30 seconds away from breaking my goddamned router into a billion pieces Infinoid> chances are, it isn't running my code then :) Whiteknight> no, it's some piece of shit netgear router. worst. router. ever. rurban> who in the world buys this crap Infinoid> Whiteknight, apparently
Whiteknight> We have an RT ticket that requests the creation of a BigNum PMC. ergo, I am writing one Whiteknight> and when we decide that it's a stupid thing to have, we can open a second ticket to have it removed Whiteknight> ...and I'll rake in the karma on both transactions :)
Coke> We do not need to reinvent every wheel. We're already reinventing several as it stands.
chromatic> But we have backwards compatibility with Perl 4 to consider, so we can't change too much.
chromatic> Want to work on a GC? PerlJam> GC is completely opaque to me other than general concepts. chromatic> Then you're qualified.
Coke> Whiteknight: lucky for your, partcl doesn't use pct. Coke> *you Whiteknight> what does partcl use instead? jonathan> Whiteknight: It's written in a combination of bf and lolcode.
Whiteknight> oh great, I can just imagine what a recursive descent parser must look like in bf chromatic> Just like any other bf code, really.
NotFound> PerlJam: at least you realize that others countries exists ;) pmichaud> NotFound: PerlJam and I are in Texas, so yes -- we know about the other 49 countries.
davidfetter> sam adams?!? in portland? i'd think in a brewpub town like portland, he'd lose on the name alone Whiteknight> yeah, that's why his opponent, Guinnes McBudweiser lost
Infinoid> I didn't distill anything, I just wrote it from scratch with malice aforethought. chromatic> Good. I'm concerned that we haven't done that enough recently.
* NotFound thinks about developping a floating point format with negative NaN Infinoid> how could you tell the difference between that and positive NaN? NotFound> Infinoid: that's the beauty of that design Infinoid> you could use negative NaN the way some perl 5 code uses "0 but true" NotFound> Will look nice: a = NaN but negative :) Infinoid> "They're just like normal NaN! Except they're EVIL." NotFound> Wait, NaN is already evil enough :D
japhb> OK, popping that discussion off the stack ... we clearly support gcc 3.4. How much older than that do we still support? rurban> 3.3 ? particle> no davidfetter> stack? i thought we used registers here ;) particle> and don't even ask about 2.7 rurban> 2.95 is still quite popular in academia chromatic> Academia should freakin' go outside once in a while. japhb> chromatic++ chromatic> HELLO FROM THE 21ST CENTURY PLEASE JOIN US THE WATER IS FINE
NotFound> "put exit at bottom or die" is valid perl6? moritz> it's just a string literal ;) NotFound> moritz: don't take it too literay NotFound> literaly Infinoid> metaphors are very literary. particle> i never met a phor i didn't like (or is) chromatic> I never metamodel not obsessed with reflection.
alvar> allison: would it be a good idea to build something which relies on threads on the current implementation? allison> alvar: you will likely run into some rough spots in the current threading implementation, but a real use for the threads implementation is a great way to shake out the bugs allison> alvar: so, I guess it depends on whether you're more of a "mountain bike" or "racing bike" kind of programmer Whiteknight> what's the difference? Whiteknight> ...besides the number of crashes Infinoid> big gnarly wheels and a penchant for running over small woodland creatures allison> alvar: "mountain bike" would be enjoying exploring rugged terrain, not minding a few bumps particle> the racing bike programmer wears a funny hat, too chromatic> If a mountain biker sees a goat, that's wonderful. If a racing biker sees a goat, something's wrong.
chromatic> We're still bound by the metaphysics of the language which state that there is no computer but a PDP and K&R is its prophet.
Tene> Wait, you mean I need to READ? Tene> I don't like the sound of this project.
Tene> Arson is a significantly underused motivational technique.
pmichaud> a failed Match is one where .to < .from moritz> so you don't support reversed Match objects? ;-) pmichaud> I do not. pmichaud> *something* has to be straight>forward< somewhere! pmichaud> :-P PerlJam> Just following the precedent of the arrow of time? :) pmichaud> It's a darn good precedent, and anyone who disagrees can go back and fix it.
