<qt> that hebrew calendar stuff is cool but i think it's sad it will stop working in 2048 or whatever
<K2> why is that?
<K2> is that the end of times?
<qt> K2: https://github.com/copperwater/xNetHack/blob/e5337b3fa8463ba1c4c9ad022e75f928092b81d5/src/hacklib.c#L1416
<K2> hahah that's awesome
<K2> "This game is still being played after 2048? Cool."
<aosdict> I mean the expectation is if xnethack is still played in 2048 then people will update the dates
<bhaak> that's what you get when you base your calendar on imprecise orbital movements
<qt> but by 2048 it will be considered a sacred text and religious authorities will forbid modifying the source code
<qt> are you trying to start a schismatic religious war?
<bhaak> schismas doesn't work with Judaism
<bhaak> they do both sides and just bad talk the other. they don't fight it each other with weapons
<qt> on one side: "the hadith clearly shows that aosdict said 'I mean the expectation is that if xnethack is played in 2048 then people will update the dates' ", on the other side "aosdict was tempted by the devil to say that, xnethack source was divinely inspired and to modify it would be the most wicked blasphemy"
<bhaak> I don't see the other side gaining much of a following as this would mean the game is unplayable after 2048
<qt> bhaak: well, it won't crash or anything, it just won't provide sufganiyot on Hanukkah. but thinking of it a little more, that would make it basically unplayable.
<bhaak> just imagine what kind of consequences they must draw from the fact that the game is unplayable on hanukhah
<bhaak> "the great prophet aosdict forbade playing on hanukkah. does this include any game or only roguelikes?"
