#qi-hardware IRC log for Tuesday, 2013-01-22

ignoramussi need some advice on a fingergrip mouse :p00:32
ignoramussany recommendations?00:32
wpwraki understand that people often mistake the "q" for question(s). but what could they think the "i" is for ? information ? insights ?02:31
wpwrakso the antidote still has some side-effects ?02:43

LunaVorax Hi!07:46
whitequarkwpwrak: LOL15:48
whitequarkI just found a dialect of Haskell for embedded programming15:48
wpwrakthen i'm just waiting for embedded APL ...15:50
whitequarkthey actually do have some interesting ideas, in particular safe handling of arithmetics15:51
whitequarkwhich I'm going to incorporate and have rediscovered independently15:51
whitequarkbut writing device drivers with monadic I/O is... well, insane.15:51
wpwrakthe things people do when there's nothing good on youporn ...15:52
larscyou can also write linux kernel drivers in haskell http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Kernel_Modules15:53
wpwrak... and you took some bad drugs ...15:54
whitequarkwpwrak: as much as I don't like to agree with you on these topics, but yeah: roughly 98% of haskell programming is academic wankery.15:54
whitequarkand you now the funniest thing? they just added these tons of unsafe operations and lost all the advantages of haskell's strict type system :D15:55
wpwraksomeone once wrote a pretty neat push router prototype for kicad. i think that was in haskell. unfortunately. and of course, it went nowhere.15:55
wpwrakwell, we have so many specialized languages. why not have one optimized for abandonware ? :)15:56
wpwrakwhitequark: all paths lead to C ;-)15:57
whitequarkwpwrak: I'm going to prove you wrong ;)15:57
wpwrakgood luck ! :) http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?lang=en_GB&word1=ruby&word2=C16:00
wpwrak(not that the bars are not proportional)16:00
whitequarkwpwrak: so?16:02
wpwrakc'mon qi-bot ! you can substitute that !16:02
wpwrakwhitequark: means you have a loooong journey ahead of you :)16:03
whitequarkwpwrak: but I don't aim for any kind of quantitive domination16:04
wpwraknow .. why does MSC+DMA insert zeroes into my lovely data stream when receiving ...16:05
whitequarkthat would be silly and unreasonable. instead, I opt for a much, much simpler task: to make a language which is better than C ;)16:05
Fallenouisn't world domination everyone's secret goal?16:05
whitequarkFallenou: you might have some confirmation bias there16:05
wpwrakFallenou: secret ? :)16:06
