[02:44:09] <servus_> Strangely fitting?
[02:46:59] <watt> Did we eat God? Did I miss that? Damn. I missed that, didn't I?

[05:12:46] <watt> Ok.. updated the OS X snapshot on the site.
[05:35:43] <watt> heh.. yeah, the pathfinder is doing quite a bit. Fun to watch

[09:02:40] <Colourless> thats a very good way of making people look... but saying don't look
[09:05:05] <wjp> :-)
[09:09:11] <wjp> the pathfinding really needs some further tweaking, it seems
[09:09:45] <wjp> it currently often stops expanding nodes close to the target when it's almost there
[09:10:19] <wjp> probably caused by the fact that the path there is not entirely straight usually, making the heuristic 'hope' there's a shorter, straight path to be found
[09:11:02] <wjp> which of course is not very realistic
[09:12:28] --> Kirben has joined #pentagram
[09:12:28] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[09:40:44] <Colourless> probably about time someone implemented something to actual debug the pathfinding
[09:41:09] <Colourless> one of the trickier things to get right and we were just letting it do whatever it was doing
[09:41:24] <wjp> yeah
[09:42:15] <wjp> already caught one stupid bug... it often just kept expanding nodes even after it had already reached the target
[09:42:50] <wjp> (which is proof the heuristic doesn't satisfy the hypotheses of A*...)
[09:44:45] <wjp> Brian had made some images of pathfinding graphs as well in an external program

[21:52:46] <watt> Well, I'm considering including support for sparkle (http://sparkle.andymatuschak.org/) and might make that my next task. This does tie us a bit closer to cocoa (instead of Core Foundation) in the OS X world, but it would be quite nice for users who don't want to frequent the site.
[21:53:33] <watt> Besides, I think I wanted to add more support for the menu in OS X.
[21:56:10] <watt> Currently we have the About / Hide / Quit menu options, but it would be neat to have a few more items...
[21:56:19] <watt> anyway G2G.
