@JohntheSeagull I am used to that. The one's at work does as well. These clients however run CentOS with FirebirdSql, and they have a 4TB database. So it's actually scary to see how those drives perform. They back it up in under an hour.
@radp My steam client keeps hanging on trying to connect for the last few days. And no idea why.
jQuery does not have native cookie functions.
I've put together a function that should suit your purposes. It returns true only if they've visited 6 pa...
@MichaelMrozek I was joking... but this reduces my faith in your earlier "I don't even know what CW is for anymore" message that I was planning on citing in a "is CW still relevant" question.
@rchern It just occurred to me the other day that pro tem mods are really very likely to become the "real" mods of any site, not just NTI. A site that isn't thrilled with its pro tem mods probably won't graduate in the first place.
I was just trying to post a question on the RPG SE beta, and the system wouldn't let me create a tag I felt would have been useful since my reputation was below 150. (The tag was changeling, for the record; it's a series of the World of Darkness.)
Apart from a problem regarding an existing tag t...
I just found out that there's Aardvark service that claims to answer any questions. And it's now backed by Google.
How do Aardvark and StackExchange - based sites compare? Is Aardvark a threat to SO/SE?
I had an argument today with one of my teacher where he was saying CGI was always slower than Servlet. I told him that performance was subjective and in some situation CGI could perform better than Servlet. He insisted on getting example of when CGI could be faster than Servlet. I just want to kn...
I'm really tempted to make a sockpuppet just to post on SO "Where can I find a proof that CGI is always slower than servlets? I have a student who's wrong about this but I don't have the proof at hand."
SQL is officially pronounced as /ˌɛskjuːˈɛl/ like "S-Q-L", as stated in

Granted, it wasn't gaining any traction, but my "Domestic Life" proposal disappeared from Area 51 without so much as a "Howdy Do." (I think it was alien abduction, frankly.) I noticed that other proposals got "closed as duplicate" messages.
Is this [status-bydesign]?
This is now done for answers only (a bulleted list for Jeff's enjoyment) - will be deployed today.
We save drafts automatically for all new answers once every 45 seconds.
ctrl-s will allow you to save a draft whenever you want (though it will disallow this happening too aggressively.
You say you were originally going to add an answer, so if you left something in the answer textbox that you weren't going to use and didn't save any other drafts, yeah, it'll still be there.
It is completely unrelated to the merging of proposals...
Proposals that do not receive any activity whatsoever for over a month get cleaned out as a matter of routine maintenance.
"Domestic Life" had was created August 12th. By August 16th it had 3 followers; but not one new question, new comm...
@rchern Oh, I was only kidding, and you know it. I don't even use NTI. I keep thinking of new questions, but I don't post them because every single one, without exception, is a variant of "how can I make facebook stop [something that I consider annoying and/or a privacy risk]?"
Dear people responsible for SVN: I don't know what I did to you, but I apologize. I promise I didn't mean to yell at your kid, run over your cat, introduce bedbugs into your home, burn down your favorite restaurant and/or cause your bank to go out of business. In fact, I didn't even know that I did any of those things. Again, I am sorry. Now may I please have my files?
Hey guys, is it possible to make REST calls to google search? ie in my client could I call REST to search for something? And if so, where can I find details? Having trouble finding my way on the API site. Cheers
@Tim So I successfully checked the code out from the Repo Explorer View, but it doesn't show up everywhere. It should be showing up under CommonLibraries/modules/theModuleInQuestion, but it's only actually showing up in the list of projects.
@ErickRobertson Yes, but I'm right here, you know.
I think the worst part is the comments on the answer which assume I'm some sort of rank newb to the programming universe, and can't understand how to choose which class to use just because I missed one feature.
@PopularDemand Yeah, I believe that checking out from that view won't do what you wanted. Did you double-check that the version of the whole project that got checked out was the one you expected? I know for one of our projects when I check out the head revision in Eclipse it decides that instead of actually doing that it's going to go check out one of the (long unused) branches instead..
It's also possible the folder is just pure evil, of course.
I'm trying to use GridBagLayout to position labels in two rows, but I want some of the labels to span both rows and others to be placed on top of each other. I need to use GridBagLayout because of the proportional sizing functionality in the weightx and weighty properties of GridBagConstraints. ...
