OTY: ONE TRUE YIP

Postby lmjb1964 » Sat Jan 31, 2015 1:16 am UTC

Woot! Yay, svenman will be there!

I have to look into local travel. Thanks for those links, svenman. I need to get from the airport in Dusseldorf to the Sustainable University (well, actually, to the hotel). While I'm there I'm just taking day trips.

I was thinking that it would be molpish to know when everyone was arriving and from where. I know things have been posted in the OTT here and there, but it would be great to have it in one central location, maybe a central calendar. I'm assuming the organizers have all this information, but I don't want to ask them to do anything more. Is there a calendar program where could all enter our arrival and departure information? Maybe something on the Wiki that would work? I would also to be happy to create a document, if that's easier and if others feel it would be useful. Thoughts?

I haven't written my speech, but I've done some research. My sweetie is a librarian, and so I got some personal research assistance. :D Of course, as he has pointed out to me, I also have to read the articles, and then write something about them. Such a stickler for details!

Contour integration might help with that. Just make an arc of radius ε around your singularity, and let the ε go to 0. ;)

Unfortunately, I'm a definite 0.0 for the conference. The 17th and 18th of Community are booked from 9:00H to 17:30H with presentations and preparatory courses for my bachelor research project, which I'll hopefully be starting on or around the 28th of Community. I would love to view the conference talks afterwards, though!

Hi Svenman!

Thanks for the info, I'm leaning heavily towards what's easiest rather than what's necessarily cheapest, so I think for internal travel I will buy tickets as and when I need them.

On which note, I've probably missed out on the youth fares that I should have booked a mip ago. Oh well.

Apologies, but it comes across sounding like "personal research assistance", since you started the sentence with "sweetie". I don't know what it means, but it sounds very "personal".

Being a librarian sounds like an enjoyable job. Is it more of an internet based job, now?

Truth be told that I may not have noticed as much as others that suggested it. I believe there was BlitzGirl and Aluisio. Maybe others. I knew it was romantic on the frame before, but I won't admit to being smart enough to realize that frame indicated more than a Time-esque "empty" frame showing departure. In other words, I'm an idiot. Never trust me. lol. :oops:

lmjb1964 wrote:ETA Ach du Lieber! Papst! (Practicing for Germany)

For decree:

To understand „Ach du Lieber!“ I need to translate it back to English. ;) A German would say „Ach du lieber Himmel!“ („Himmel“ means “heaven”) or „Ach du liebes Lottchen!“ („Lottchen“ is the diminutive of the female first name „Lotte“) or „Oh Gott!“ (or „Oh GLR!“ if xe's an OTTer, where „LR“ sound about like “ell err” and I don't currently find an English example for the pronunciation of the „G“ the „G“ sounds about like the “g” as in “goat” followed by the “eh” as in “Meh!”), or „Ach du Jemine!“ or …

While we're at it, it's „Düsseldorf“ (or „Duesseldorf“ if your leopard does not provide the „ü“), but not „Dusseldorf“. „Düssel“ is the river² which floats through the Neandertal. „Dussel“ means “dope”. And „Dorf“ means “village”. So „Düsseldorf“ means “the village by the river² Düssel”, and „Dusseldorf“ means “the village of the dopes”.

ETA: Starlight Express is definitely worth a visit – if you don't mind that it's in German.
And it is somewhat loud. Better bring something to protect your ears.

HOW ENDISH IS IT, REALLY, TO DELURK IN A SANDCASTLE DURONG A BUTTERSTORM?
mrob27 wrote:Not sure how far back to go with this one...
  • @Link created AUTOMOME
  • I copied it but changed it to another programming language
  • @azule and @balthasar_s also made versions of AUTOMOME
  • Mine has a file that contains all of the word lists and "templates" for creating a randomly filled-in meme, it's called ott-snowclones.txt
  • For @balthasar_s's version, that file's format is close enough to what he wants that he can use it with fairly minor modifications. But if I change something he has to be careful about how he adds my changes to his version, so as not to cause new problems in his version.

I'm using the same software that mrob27's automome does. My ONGtext generator page only says "With the help of mrob27's automome." Also, on the source page there is no information that mome.pl is a copy from mrob and no information about its license. I will have to fix this soon.
I made the bot ONG the frames. (Originally, I didn't plan to make the bot or even a viewer). At the beginning, the bot only said "Ong." I wanted something more interesting. Link shows a simple ONGword generator.
Link wrote:Also, for those who may be interested in this sort of thing, here's a *NIX one-liner to generate a random UNG-word:

Code: Select all

grep -i '[aeiouy]ng' /usr/share/dict/words | shuf -n 1 | tr [a-z] [A-Z] | sed 's:[AEIOUY]NG:[b]UNG[/b]:g'
(Requires UNG miscfiles.)
FTFY

But then I thought. We already have meme generators. Why not generate memes AND ongtext?
I have no idea how to write a meme generator. I could find out. Or I could use an already existing automome. There were three. Link, mrob27 and azule. The version i liked the most was the one from azulele. But it's in Javascript. So I can't use it on my botcastle. The easiest to use for me is the automome from mrob27. So I used it.
I made one change. It wanted the meme definition file to be in ~/data/memes/ott-snowclones.txt. I didn't want to have it on ~. I want all my time-related things to be on the HDD and not on the SD card. If the bot starts on his own the user is "b" but if the bot is activated from outside it's "www-data". These are two different ~s. I changed the path to /eizm/mem/ong1/mome.txt. Later, after a PM from me, mrob27 released a version which allows to set the path in a commandline parameter.
I also added some ONGification written in awk. It works like this. The bot (bot4.c) makes the auotmome (mome.pl) generate a certain number of memes in a temporary file. then the ongification (mome.awk) is applied. It tries aome filters, not only the _NG -> ONG. If the meme is not ottifiable it goes to the next one. If none of them are - it will post "Ong.".
And of course I made changes in the meme file. I added/changed/removed some of the words/memes.
But what if the bot becomes pope? At first it would post something like "Wow, pope! I'm a popebot! I think I'll let balthasar/lmjb edit in a decree.". But if I can generate ong-memes, why not autogenerate ong-decrees? In a PM I asked mrob27 some questions about the meme file syntax and I found out that this is doable. I created a [decr] template which selects one from the imperative memes and add "DECREE: " before it. There are over 20 imperative memes. But some are more likely to be ONGifiable so they appear more often.
Why lmjbot? I wanted to see what happens if the ONGs will (for some time) come not from me but from someone else. I chose lmjb1964 because she's an <computery stuff> expert and because there was some joking completely serious speculation that I'm actually one of lmjb's identities. She agreed and the lmjbot was built.

Later I got a request from SIlentTimer to build an interface to send posts at pre-defined times. I already had the postbots. And I already had the ct-if (but it wasn't discovered yet). So I built the Silent Chronotransponder and the SilentBot.
SilentTimer wanted a way to generate UNGtext. I made the ONGtext generator. I added ongtext.c and ongtext.awk and new UNGfilters.
Very soon after it I integrated the o/ungtext generator into the Silent Chronotransponder's file upload interface. upload.c and upload.awk are not released yet. I think I PM'd it to SilentTimer once. Now if you use the file upload interface and include an [ong], [ung], [ong=decree] or [ung=decree] it will be replaced with ongomomed text. It will not work in the online editor interface.
Each tag means one run of ongomome - generating some memes and ongifying the first ongifiable one. Not very optimal. If there are more tags in the posts then there is more waiting.

SilentTimer, how long do you usually wait when uploading the posts?

When I prepared for the t1iversary, balthasar_s was kind enough to create the Silent Chronotransponder and the SilentBot to assist me. When it was ready I got the honour to visit SilentBot at the secret base on the Moon. I immediately liked this place (so silent :)), so I asked whether I may stay there until the t1iversary. And then I just forgot to get back to the OtherSkyCircle.
Meanwhile I like this place so much that I think I'll just stay here – if I may.
The exact location is, of course, classified. It's a secret base on the Moon, after all. However if you really want to get to that place, you can use the map.
balthasar_s wrote:SilentTimer, how long do you usually wait when uploading the posts?
I read that as: “… before uploading the posts?”
The answer is: “Too long.” :?
Spoiler:
To answer the original question: I upload a file, then I get some text messages. I wait for it, where “it” refers to the messages to complete. It takes a hectonewpix, at most. Everything is molpish.

I don't exactly remember why I made that meme about zombies learning math. But because they're zombies, I put you in the meme because of the R.A.Z.O.R. connection. See this post and scroll down to where I mention you.

lmjb1964 wrote: In Bochum-related news, and for decree, Bochum has a Starlight Express Theater showing Starlight Express. (It's an early Andrew Lloyd Webber musical). This is funny/amazing/wonderful to me. Nobody ever performs that musical because of the roller skating. This may be the only chance I have to see a fully-staged production, so I'm pretty sure I have to go.

I saw Starlight Express in London in 1991. It's a pretty good musical, and it somehow became vastly more popular in Germany. The version you see there is even better than what I saw in West End because they have more tracks. So, yes — see it :D

Thanks as always for the thorough explanation. I'll also add license notes to the top of my ott-snowclones.txt and automeme-pl.txt
  A couple wips ago I added a [decree] template that you might find of interest. It includes the four variants of the [sentence-imperative] template, which is new.

Code: Select all


template imper1: [verb-tr-inf] THE [noun-plural, noun-mass, adjec-noun][]
template imper2: [verb-tr-inf] [noun-plural] [preposition] THE [noun-singular, noun-mass, adjec-noun][]
template imper3: [verb-intr-inf] [preposition] THE [noun-singular, noun-mass, adjec-noun][]
template imper4: [place-name][$0/remove-the/][][verb-intr-inf] [$0/-pr-out] [$0/-art] [$1][]
template sentence-imperative: [imper1, imper2, imper3, imper4][]

 ...

template decree01: ATTACK ITS WEAK POINT FOR [adjective] [noun-singular, noun-plural, noun-mass, adjec-noun][]
[decree01]

# (I did this in all the same places you did)

 ...

template decree: [OPTIONAL @0.3, ]DECREE: [decree01, decree02, decree03, decree04, decree05, decree06, decree07, decree08, decree09, decree10, decree11, decree12, decree13, decree14, decree15, decree16, decree17, decree18, decree19, decree20, decree21, decree22, imper1, imper2, imper3, imper4][]

I had plans to add hashtag support for everything (vocabulary, templates, etc.) making the decree thing less clunky, and I still do ... but I'm too busy doing molpier things (like OTTifying Lem!) to work on it.

By the way, you're at 900 posts soon, w00t!

Happy delunkiversary, @SilentTimer!

Um, things are a bit different from what I remember.
Anyway, before that quoting style, there was another. Which is different from the current one. Can you spot the difference? If so, you then know where it began. And if you know why it began, you know why it ended.

I may have not-thought the same thing at the time.

I have to look into local travel. Thanks for those links, svenman. I need to get from the airport in Dusseldorf to the Sustainable University (well, actually, to the hotel). While I'm there I'm just taking day trips.

Gern geschehen! :D

In diesem Fall kannst du dir gerne auch die Webseiten des Verkehrsverbundes Rhein-Ruhr ansehen, der für den Ballungsraum zuständig ist, in dem Bochum liegt. Die Fahrkarten des VRR gelten auch in S-Bahnen und Regionalzügen der DB, allerdings nicht in Fernzügen (Faustregel: ist der Zug vor allem rot, gelten die Verbundfahrkarten; ist er vor allem weiß, dann nicht).

Zur Vollständigkeit habe ich diese Informationen auch in mein Posting von gestern mit aufgenommen.
Spoiler:
You're welcome! :D

In this case, have a look also at the website of Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr, the regional transport authority for the conurbation which Bochum lies in. VRR tickets are also valid in local (S-Bahn) and regional DB trains but not in long-distance ones (rule of thumb: if the train is mostly red, the VRR tickets are valid for it; if it is mostly white, then they aren't).

For completeness, I've also added that information to my post from yesterdip.

lmjb1964 wrote:I was thinking that it would be molpish to know when everyone was arriving and from where. I know things have been posted in the OTT here and there, but it would be great to have it in one central location, maybe a central calendar. I'm assuming the organizers have all this information, but I don't want to ask them to do anything more. Is there a calendar program where could all enter our arrival and departure information? Maybe something on the Wiki that would work? I would also to be happy to create a document, if that's easier and if others feel it would be useful. Thoughts?

Baumige Idee. Ich habe die Wiki-Seite zum OTTer-Treffen um zwei entsprechende Spalten erweitert. Da kann jeder Teilnehmer am Treffen, auch ohne Account im Wiki, seine Daten zu An- und Abreise eintragen.
Spoiler:
Treeish idea. I've added two corresponding columns to the wiki page on the OTTer Meetup. Anyone attending the meetup can add their arrival and departure information there, no wiki account required.

@svenman
Yeah, on the days we're only travelling within Berlin we'll just buy local tickets rather than getting a 7 day flexi rail pass since those will be cheaper than the increment from a 5 day flexi pass.

I wonder, will this message be the same as in this post or will there be differences? Will the differences contain another level of hidden information? Also, this gives mrob27 more time before the actual message. More waiting.

So you are one of our students?

I found this in my secret lab:

mm-sorting-machine.jpg

It's an M&M sorting machine. There's a web interface and/or a SmartPhone app where you can tell which colours you want. Then the machine puts the (really stale!) M&Ms into one of the boxes. Or sometimes it pelts you with them, although the comfy chair is in another room.
