15:24:42: <impomatic> Hi :-)
15:25:33: <impomatic> If anyone needs any help, just let me know. (It might take me a little while to answer though).
15:35:23: <impomatic> Also, if anyone's just heard about the tournament on Hacker News and wants to enter, late email entries will be accepted until 23:59 (GMT) on 28th May.

16:34:19: <Fizmomaster> hi hi
16:42:31: <impomatic> Hi Fizmomaster :-)
16:49:01: <impomatic> I've had a few late entries for the tournament! :-) Quite a few new players too...
16:50:50: <impomatic> I'm just preparing text for the displays at the tournament. Running a bit behind due to everyone being ill :-/
16:54:49: <Fizmomaster> yeah
16:55:08: <Fizmomaster> good to see some new player playing corewar
16:57:12: <impomatic> Some of the new players have some decent looking entries. I hope they perform well on the day.
16:58:00: <impomatic> Otherwise they'll have another chance for the October tournament.
17:08:10: <Fizmomaster> BTW, where the tournament became viral?
17:12:54: <impomatic> Someone posted to Hacker News and now it's all over twitter, etc :-)
17:19:45: <Fizmomaster> :-)
17:21:04: <impomatic> Fizmomaster: did you ever play on the Wasted Youth hills?
17:21:32: <impomatic> Or the t35 hills? Can you remember who ran those?
17:27:25: <impomatic> I forgot to mention, I've managed to find a trick that kills transposition stones 100% of the time.
17:41:05: <Fizmomaster> no never played the Watsed Youth hill
17:41:37: <Fizmomaster> just Pizza, Koth and SAL
17:58:15: <impomatic> The trick works by putting pointers in core and watching to see if the stone moved one. It can then calculate the stone's exact position!
18:10:51: <impomatic> Koenigstuhl is still down :-(

19:21:18: <impomatic> Hi :-)
19:21:39: <chris_99> hey heh
19:23:37: -!- Houshalter has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
19:24:38: <impomatic> There are quite a few evolvers published for Core War http://corewar.co.uk/evolving.htm
19:24:53: <impomatic> And a few papers about it http://corewar.co.uk/science.htm
19:25:13: <chris_99> do they use GA type techniques
19:26:13: <chris_99> (still waiting for loading...)
19:27:00: <impomatic> I'd have to check, but it probably point mutation and a fitness function. The simplest evolvers I've seen are written in a few lines of BASIC.
19:28:08: <chris_99> nice
19:28:10: <impomatic> chris_99: do you know Metalab in Vienna? They've done a couple of Core War events this year.
19:28:22: <chris_99> i'm in Vienna heh
19:28:25: <chris_99> i don't though
19:28:27: * chris_99 googles
