mod6: <+asciilifeform> wonder what mod6 would say to this. << half a mile?! that's 2`640 ft. / 3 = ~880 yards. that's a pretty decent long shot even for a .308.
mod6: for me, when I use upland loads (#6 shot) for pheasants, i get many yells of "great shot mod6" if I put a bird down at "long shot" of 60-80 yards.
mod6: they do fly fast, and it's a lot harder than it looks. for one. now maybe I just suck shit, and guys are popping birds @ 500 yards on the regular. but this, i haven't seen myself.
mod6: many guys do shoot deer with .12ga slugs.
mod6: now, typically, as I understand, they typically take these deer at no more than 350 yards or you risk wounding the thing and having to track the sob for 10 miles.
mod6: if you're in a qcb, and you have a shotgun and don't have a rifle as an option, or slugs for your shotgun, buckshot will do just fine. but you aught to be within say, 25 yards if you want to put your man down.
mod6: that's just my $0.02. not gospel. personally, if I gotta fight in the field. i need to be able to put rounds on target up to at least 200 yards away or I'm basically in a qcb/hand-to-hand situation.
mod6: so, yeah qcb, shotgun with buckshot will the job really well, especially inside the home or whatnot. but if I'm attacking, trying to lay down suppressing fire, or a part of some type of garrison, gotta have a rifle. at least, that's what I want in my hands.
mod6: but heck, what do i know. when it comes down to it, any gun, with live ammo, is better than standing there with your dick in your hands.
mod6: :]

mod6: i should note that pheasants are a bit different though. i try to get them up no further than 30 yards in front of me. any more than that shots get hard, birds catch wind and they're gone easier than you'd think. I keep the dogs between 15-25 yards in front of me, that way, they flush, bird pops up, i knock 'em down.
mod6: ducks are a lot more involved. you gotta set out decoys and call 'em in to land. that's when those guys are in the blind they lock their wings coming into land that they shoot 'em. at least, that's what I hear.
mod6: im not sure how high they try to take the shots.... your pellet pattern spreads out the further and further away you are shooting. now, for instance, if I shoot at a pheasant that's too close too me. i'll hit it with a full pattern, and that will probably not be very awesome to eat.
mod6: so a bit of distance is good. too much and you're not hitting jack shit. even if you could put a pellet on target, it won't have enough KE to knock it down.
mod6: maybe the goose/duck hunters use a different choke than me too. so who knows.
mod6: i got a buddy who shoots a zillion geese every year, i'll have to ask him. i know that he does put out decoys and call's 'em in though.

mod6: trinque imagines asciilifeform spraying ak47 rounds into flock, "FOR PIGLET!!!!!" << win lol
BingoBoingo: <ben_vulpes> so bad << Crank is probably best 'Murican film of the century so far
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform think car. shoot driver ; shoot fuel tank ; these work with a fucking 38mm. if you're actually firing 20 gauge you can prolly fissure a cylinder / ablate the transmission / cut a hole throgh one blade large enough to make it no longer capable of flight << 20 gauge is small less common one, 12 gauge is bigger common one.
mircea_popescu: i once shot a phantom with a pea at 17 leagues

BingoBoingo: In europe bird hunters hit at extreme range because they use 1, 2, or 4 gauge "punt guns", US maxes out at 10 and 12 gauge for the reason that ducks respond to bigger guns by just flying higher and then arms race
BingoBoingo once shot down a fly with my pee
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i suspect the thing is, us duck / swamp birds mostly live in estuaries ; whereas in europe over river marshlands.
mircea_popescu: makes a huge difference, in that you ain't got a submarine dog.

mod6: omfg
diana_coman: selected delights from planeOfshit
mod6: im like...
mod6: thanks for all your hard work on Eulora.
mod6: i just read your article, nice write up. I'm stunned at what you're saying there.
diana_coman: thanks! got a bit of it out basically; in any case, eulora server is being gradually rebuilt and ps will be entirely discarded
mod6: my mind boggles at how they even have this setup. for instance, in my mind, if you were going to have say, 30 different types of hats in the game, there would be a simple, abstract hat class.
diana_coman: it really took me months to accept the evidence that "abstract" is something entirely unknown there
mod6: from there, you would extend the abstract hat, and provide whatever implementations required, including whatever x/y points or whatnot to draw the thing...
mod6: it sounds like this is /far/ from such a design.
diana_coman: sure, they have classes and classes inheriting classes and so on and so forth, but as to the reasons for inheritance...
mod6: so ya, sounds like there is really no design pattern, or at lesat not a discernable one 'eh
mod6: like 'builder' or 'composition' etc etc.
diana_coman: ahahah, design patterns, what, reading books next ? programming, yo!
diana_coman: social coding thing I suspect
mod6: haha
mod6: my mind reels at what the whole slot location mechinism.
diana_coman: myeah, that was cherry on top
mod6: some nasty type of pointer arithmatic or whatever 'eh?
diana_coman: I suppose I should be grateful it is done with numbers straight rather than pointers too
mod6: well, someone may suppose that you'd rather smashed in the head with a simple rock, or this here complex ax head.
mod6: nice call graph too.
mod6: i think that kinda illustrates what you need to contend with.
mod6: you're basically a saint.
mod6: let me know if i can help somehow.
diana_coman: hopefully won't end up thrown to the lions though :))
diana_coman: thanks! :)
mod6: not on my watch.
mod6: anytime. :]
asciilifeform: diana_coman: spiffy article, good illustration of the kind of affair ada was built to prevent
diana_coman: asciilifeform, thanks!
asciilifeform: (for instance, prohibits pointer arithmetic, or even the use of a pointer in any context other than where it was born; or to any item not in advance marked pointable-at.)
diana_coman: aha, I had a bit of a look at ada but sadly no time to properly play around with it; I'm looking forward though to your ada implementations
asciilifeform: diana_coman: i will be releasing a small proggy quite soon.
trinque: imagine that this tangling of classes happens in the sinner skulls before disgracing code
trinque: and they just let people walk around like that!
asciilifeform: trinque: there is no tangle properly speaking ~in~ their skull. when proggy no longer fits in head, programming turns into a brute physical, rather than intellectual activity
trinque: they're not incompatible points, really
mod6: the graph, suggests, to me, that the entire thing is very tightly coupled.
trinque: I worked on a very sad qt project once upon a time
trinque: class graph looked like a rat king
trinque: and asciilifeform is right that the sheer mass of the thing made it impossible to lift into one's head
mod6: as far as this knot of ps, or the qt thing?
trinque: but also there were plenty of idiots that could not think clearly about the problem in the abstract either, i.e. there is a board, it is to be carved along these paths, so on
trinque: qt thing itself was an abominable nightmare of a hacked together carve-path drawing tool
mod6: eek
ben_vulpes: ahaha diana_coman i salute you that is some serious archaeology
diana_coman: ben_vulpes, cheers!
diana_coman: mod6, "tight coupling" would be a very ....british way of putting it: I think trinque has it there with "rat king"
mod6: heheh.
diana_coman: and yes, fwiw I don't think they bothered with having anything in their heads, not by the looks of it: hey, it WORKS, right?
mod6: "they have oatmeal in their heads"
ben_vulpes: footnote 3 is a gorgeous little sentence, i don't think i've ever seen the like from a native english speaker
