here is a recap of what has happened in arc over the past 12 hours.

some excerpts:

* ams has joined channel #arc

<ams> i'd like to rewrite linux in arc, where do i start?

<mattl> arc is certainly capable.

<ams> and it is a exploratory language, so it shouldn't take to long

<bgeron> I'm not so sure about that

<ams> are you saying arc is not good?

<ams> why not? why can i not write linux in arc?

<ams> pg says it is the best language out there

* wvd has joined channel #arc

<wvd> hello

<wvd> I'm starting a company, I'll call it bizarro google and instead of hiring CS and math phds I'll hire only cobol programmers. I'm sure Y combinator will give me venture capital for that.

<wakeupsheeple> can i be co-founder

<wvd> what will your business focus be?

<wakeupsheeple> we will consult companies with solutions for their webapplications based on 'software as a service', providing content to their users

<wakeupsheeple> wvd what should i name my web 2.0 company, Quaykor or Kwxxypp

<wvd> totally go for Kwxxypp, vowels are for the weak

<wvd> register the domais, that way people wont think that kwxxypp is just some random string of letters but instead that they might have some kind of non-unicode browser that does not render cyrillic URLs

<wakeupsheeple> your first duty as Kwxxypp cofounder is to register that domain since i've already posted the business plan here

no no... it's more important to get a good logo for the language, i hereby propose an eightball... or a stormtrooper!

I would like to see a small ant with an antique pocketwatch eating a pie.

How would a pocketwatch eat a pie?!

That was A+

Shouldn't it be an arch? but, missing some element that was of course unnecessary to begin with.

Barring that, a lintel with a big cancel sign over it.

Someone has already started on an implementation in Haskell

it was a parody, to show that in a few days we could do what took 6 years.
