[07:32:38] * wjp looks at logs; the difference between SB, SB Pro and SB 16? Strange place to ask :-)
[07:35:55] <Colourless> perhaps, perhaps not
[07:36:14] <Colourless> think about what sound cards are listed in U8's install program ;-)
[07:43:43] <wjp> hm, you have a point :-)

[21:25:38] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[21:59:17] <wjp> hi Fingolfin
[21:59:24] <Fingolfin> hiya willem
[22:01:23] <Fingolfin> wjp: hey, I wonder, you are still at univerity, aren't you? doing your phd? or not?
[22:01:38] <wjp> phd students since last april
[22:01:46] <wjp> s/ts/t/
[22:02:04] <Fingolfin> nice. what are you working on? (sorry if you already told me and I forgot. I am soo lousy :-/)
[22:04:02] <wjp> currently working on a generalisation of Artin's primitive root conjecture to general number fields
[22:06:10] <wjp> (Artin's primitive root conjecture is about the density of primes for which a given number is a primitive root)
[22:06:34] <Fingolfin> hm, artin's conjecture? that something with all numbers being primitive roots mod p for infinitely many p or so?
[22:07:16] <wjp> that's the one :-)
[22:08:23] <Fingolfin> I just found it on mathworld, too. Seems there are two different conjectures by artin, in fact ;-).
[22:09:00] <wjp> yes, caused some interesting conversations at times when I was talking about one and the other person about the other ;-)
[22:09:06] <Fingolfin> hheheheh
[22:10:17] <Fingolfin> so, you take numbers not from the integers, but from a general number field, and determine whether it's a primitive root, soomehow?
[22:10:48] <wjp> the density of primes from that number field for which a given number is a primitive root
[22:12:11] <wjp> and also in the direction of 'near-primitive roots' (instead of generating the entire unit group of the residue field, a subgroup with index dividing a given integer)
[22:12:51] <wjp> hm, I should be going; have to get up early tomorrow
[22:12:54] <wjp> good night
[22:16:37] <Fingolfin> good night :-)
[22:17:07] <Fingolfin> (what you are doing there sounds very interesting, BTW. Gotta invite me to a presentation talk about it one day ;-)
