[02:40:04] <Fnord666> Howdy!!
[02:40:11] <Fnord666> Doing well. Yourself?
[02:40:26] <Bytram> good. tired, but good.
[02:41:08] <Fnord666> I like how in the story you're looking at infodragon refers to himself in the third person
[02:41:37] * Bytram is still reading
[02:41:45] <Fnord666> never mind. Got my people turned around a bit
[02:42:09] <Fnord666> it's an interesting bit of Data Analysis
[02:42:15] <Bytram> nodnod
[02:42:26] <Bytram> encounters common problem of 'dirty' data entry
[02:42:38] <Bytram> pasting:

[02:42:39] <Bytram> Lawkeshore Dr West

[02:42:40] <Bytram> Lkae Shore Drive
[02:42:42] <Bytram> Lkaeshore Dr West
[02:42:44] <Bytram> finis.
[02:43:00] <Fnord666> yup.
[02:43:14] <Fnord666> Phase 1 - Data cleaning
[02:43:26] <Fnord666> And no, that doesn't mean washing the android
[02:43:27] <Bytram> not at THAT scale, but I have some experience cleaning data...
[02:43:29] <Bytram> ninja'd
[02:43:31] <Bytram> =)
[02:43:42] <Fnord666> lol
[02:43:49] <Bytram> Commander Data takes a Bath!
[02:44:07] <Fnord666> episode 5463?
[02:44:16] <Bytram> not sure how to run the story, though.
[02:44:19] <Bytram> lol
[02:44:26] <Fnord666> me either.
[02:44:29] <Bytram> just worked a long stretch and am very tired...
[02:44:35] <Bytram> neurons are saying I don't wanna
[02:45:16] <Fnord666> It can always keep
[02:45:19] <Bytram> just need to apply some data cleaning to the story submission, I guess.
[02:45:27] <Fnord666> :)
[02:46:27] <Fnord666> There's a data analysis site that has some nice tutorials on using numpy, pandas, etc. that has a good
[02:46:44] <Fnord666> example case for passengers of the Titanic
[02:47:17] <Fnord666> The data cleaning section has to take a bunch of factors into account and regroup things.
[02:47:38] <Fnord666> It was a very good introduction
[02:47:44] <Bytram> linky?
[02:47:49] <Bytram> and, umm, pandas??
[02:48:23] <Fnord666> let me dig it up
[02:48:44] <Fnord666> pandas is an open source, BSD-licensed library providing high-performance, easy-to-use data structures and data analysis tools for the Python programming language.
[02:48:59] <Bytram> kewel!
[02:50:06] <Fnord666> The site is called Kaggle (kaggle.com).
[02:50:21] <Bytram> is that what a kangaroo does?
[02:50:38] <Fnord666> They actually do data science competitions among other things.
[02:50:46] <Bytram> hmm, if you have a gaggle of geese, do you have a kaggle of kangaroo?
[02:51:00] <Bytram> or would those be koalas?
[02:52:19] <Fnord666> Nothing beats a murder of crows
[02:52:20] <chromas> kegel your kaggles
[02:53:18] <Fnord666> please do that in private and wash your hands afterwards
[02:53:39] <Bytram> sounds like a winter olympics sport
[02:53:51] <Fnord666> an unkindness (or conspiracy) of ravens
[02:55:47] <Bytram> murder of crows
[02:56:14] <Bytram> Fnord666: okay, I added a summary paragraph and cleaned up a couple typos...
