daemon oddness

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Sun Aug 12, 2018 12:34 pm

I have a weird situation I will write out when I get back:

I have a file called daemons.hug, it contains daemons for Cyberganked. There are 27 daemons in it, far less than Cryptozookeeper.

If I add another daemon to this file, Cyberganked crashes when run. Not during compile, it's a run time error.

As an experiment, I added a definition of a fuse before the last daemon that I added. It no longer crashes at run time. If I take that out it does.

What. The. F.

I'm not going to answer this until you tell us all how you pronounce "daemon" out loud.

Does the interpreter crash? Both the Kent's as well as Hugor? Or is some sort of in-engine runtime error? If it's the former, you can send me a hex file that causes this and I can see if it's something I can fix.

It crashes on both Kent's and Hugor - but I walked back to a few commits ago and added two daemons and it was fine. So it is something I recently added with the alcohol code that is screwing things up. It's weird because the debugger also didn't give me great information. I still have work to do before giving up.

I've never pronounced it out loud. I suppose I would adopt a rich Jamaican accent for that word though?

Is it "day-mon" or "dee-mon"? (The Jamaican accent is assumed.)

It's actually just a spelling variant of "demon" and is pronounced the exact same way:

phonetically: /ˈdēmən/

I'm not asking how it should be pronounced. I was asking how ICJ would pronounce it.

Daemon is the southern word for demon.

I don't know how else to explain it - having never heard the word said out loud in this context, I would have no pronunciation for it.

It's like asking how I would say, "Zbeqbzx."

How could you have worked in the IT field for decades and never heard someone say "daemon".

It would only be like that if I also provided the Cambridge dictionary's UK and US pronunciations of the word along with its phonetic spelling, otherwise it would be nothing like the example you provided.

People still argue about the pronunciation of GIF, and the proper way to pronounce NES is back in the news this month. We still haven't mastered three-letter words. We're never going to get to six-letter ones like daemon, and zbeqbzx is right out.

Yeah this boggles the mind. The first word of GIF is "Graphics" so it doesn't make any sense to me to pronounce the G like Jeffery. Are people really saying N.E.S. like "Ness"?

It's pronounced "demon", like "demon", but everyone pronounces it "daymon", which bugs the SHIT outta me. But you get a pass, because you are a dear, cherished friend.
