Basically, I've taken the current badges on StackOverflow, and broke them into actions you can perform on the site. (Posting, Editing, etc).
Once I decided on the actions, I gave each action a gold, silver, and bronze badge, and saw which badges actually fit into those categories.
This left me...
I don't know if I'm just being daft or what, but I'm having a hard time suppressing it. (The navigation operates on keydown, so I have a separate suppression function for keypress that I bind before the one that chat does)
The keypress function checks to see if the target was the input already, and I guess in those cases because I focus on the input in the keydown handler, the browser makes that work.
Oh boy, have I been waiting for somebody to ask something like this.
We really aggressively cache... basically everything.
Virtually all pages accessed by (and subsequently served to) annonymous users are cached, whole cloth, via Output Caching. This isn't terribly interesting, but it is terri...
Sure, but Jeff also confuses me. I'm not supposed to want only my tags so that I see bleedover between tags. But I'm also supposedly not supposed to be using the homepage either. So what am I supposed to be doing?
Earlier today, I discovered that http://chat.stackexchange.com was now up, with chat links working on SE 2.0 sites. However, just now when I try it, I get a "too many redirects error" in both Chrome 8 (dev channel) and Safari 5 on Mac OS X 10.6.3. I tried clearing my cookies for StackExchange and...
> #4 is already very easy to do. Search on [java] [algorithms]. The square brackets force it to treat the key words as tags, and it will use an AND relationship. Of course, they could make this easier to discover. – Joel Coehoorn♦ yesterday
> @joel You guys are talking about redesigning the home page, and we are giving you suggestions of what we would like to see on the home page. We aren't looking for a work around to something we believe should exist on the very front page. – Chacha102 0 secs ago
What triggered this post is this question, which has two quality answers but due to some contested points, both have spurred lengthy discussions in comments from a few users.
Now, I have no problem with the users here - I think the comments there are all relevant and on-topic - but I do think th...
Sometimes you end up with an extended back and forth that just clutters up a QA thread. With Chat, there's a reasonable venue to conduct that conversation in real time, and because of the way everything is transcripted, it can be linked back as a useful resource in the QA thread after the discussion has petered out as well.
Actually some of my answers to newer questions have garnered two upvotes, heh, so I suppose it's possible. I actually have been meaning to go back and check if there are any interesting questions that haven't been answered yet, just as a matter of principle.
@waffles Yeah, because everyone asks the same thing.. sigh Even after I wrote the tag wiki with links for them, for shame! Heheh
Actually that doesn't follow at all, but there's a valid point in there somewhere. :P

oh, duh. lightbulb. i've got a systray item that shows memory usage. and for the last few days I've been thinking it is crazy because it generally has 15-25% but my memory usage is always 75%-85%. Hey @rchern, maybe it is showing free available memory.
