2000-11-29 21:51:39 +0000 <timmy> err
2000-11-29 21:51:44 +0000 <timmy> debian
2000-11-29 21:52:16 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> not installed but i've got the CD (i'm at a friend)
2000-11-29 21:52:25 +0000 <timmy> what are you running on?
2000-11-29 21:53:06 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> mandrake... (don't blame me but i can configure the debian for internet...:( )
2000-11-29 21:53:34 +0000 <timmy> hmm
2000-11-29 21:53:36 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> i mean i CAN'T configure debian
2000-11-29 21:53:57 +0000 <rahul> what internet connection?
2000-11-29 21:54:02 +0000 <timmy> the easiest start to programming would be getting a scheme interpreter and looking at a scheme tutorial like this: http://www.cs.rice.edu/~dorai/t-y-scheme/t-y-scheme.html
2000-11-29 21:54:03 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> adsl
2000-11-29 21:54:11 +0000 <rahul> dhcp?
2000-11-29 21:54:42 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> i already look at the
2000-11-29 21:54:48 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> cisp book
2000-11-29 21:55:00 +0000 <timmy> oh so you know a little?
2000-11-29 21:55:01 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> is it a good book, isn't it ?
2000-11-29 21:55:14 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> timmy: yes, a little
2000-11-29 21:55:28 +0000 <timmy> i don't have any lisp books
2000-11-29 21:55:58 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> me too (i had take it from my school library)
2000-11-29 21:56:15 +0000 <timmy> my school library wouldn't have something like that..
2000-11-29 21:56:18 +0000 <timmy> heh
2000-11-29 21:56:27 +0000 <timmy> well that should be fine i guess
2000-11-29 21:56:29 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> what king of school ?
2000-11-29 21:56:34 +0000 <smoke> hmz seems the multimethod dispatch is the bottleneck
2000-11-29 21:56:38 +0000 <timmy> public magnet high school
2000-11-29 21:56:46 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> where ?
2000-11-29 21:56:46 +0000 <rahul> smoke: declare types
2000-11-29 21:57:05 +0000 <timmy> tn
2000-11-29 21:57:34 +0000 <smoke> rahul: hm how do you mean? the bottleneck i'm referring to is probably in (image-blit ((source image-8bpp) (dest image-8bpp) x y) ...)
2000-11-29 21:58:18 +0000 <Fufie> smoke: mm in cmucl isn't as fast as it could be no, esp when dispatching on two args
2000-11-29 21:58:27 +0000 <P1nK_SP1d3r> timmy: what kind of programme can we do with scheme ?
2000-11-29 21:58:43 +0000 <smoke> fufie: boohoo. it's one of the most important calls i'm using
2000-11-29 21:59:05 +0000 <rahul> smoke: use memcpy
2000-11-29 21:59:17 +0000 <timmy> P1nK_SP1d3r: scheme is just less stuff than common lisp
2000-11-29 21:59:46 +0000 <rahul> scheme is CL - CLOS + continuations, mostly
2000-11-29 22:00:05 +0000 <Fufie> and lacking a decent set of functions to do real work
