Observations, suggestions and some questions after 4 days on Stack Overflow.
I've been hearing about Stack Overflow from more and more people, and it turns up more and more often in my Google searches. This weekend I decided to finally give it a try, see how it compared to e.g. the original expe...
Ruby on Rails is a server side technology, so it doesn't lend any specific quality to the user visible design. That said, it is a "trendy" technology so people who are likely to write their back-end code with RoR are likely to choose a particular "Web 2.0" style for their views.
It's kind of li...
We're wondering if the original author can always delete a Community Wiki answer, even when that author is no longer the main contributor. We already know that it cannot be deleted if it's accepted, but when not accepted, then zero or one upvote(s) don't seem to matter. So: could anyone please upvote this CW answer? (It will be deleted afterwards.) meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/79189/… Thanks!
(Thanks: 2 upvotes don't stop me from deleting either.)
On the review page, there is a one-sentence guideline on reviewing. I think that as the number of reviewers increase, it is going to become increasingly necessary to come to some kind of agreement about a standard way to handle the different 'cases' that arise.
I'm not sure if 'one question to r...
As a new user, only 2 days old now.
I only just found out that I could accept an answer, because I curious about those green tick thing's. I did not know what they were. Now I know, but it was not immediately apparent to me.
I think a little more info when asking a question would go a long ...
@TheRenamedException you missed one, when you upvote you get a 'Have you considered marking this answer as the accepted answer'? or something like that. Can't remember the exact conditions. searching now...
> Because all these things exist, I have always thought that the additional clarification you ask for isn't needed... I've answered meta questions stating this before. I used to be very steadfast in my position... however you as a new user bringing it up makes me rethink my position...
> I have always seen longer term users complaining that new users didn't know how to accept, and thought they were wrong. Now that I see a new user saying "I didn't know how to accept an answer", I think that maybe I have been wrong.
@YiJiang Oh, I did not know of jjquery, hence my confusion

Anyways, the only problem is that I've received a competing offer from the Mean High-Rep User Close Vote Air Force of Shutting Down Highly Voted Questions Normal Users Like. (Also the Angry High-Rep User National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps of Editing Posts Without Permission.)

@TheRenamedException If it's any consolation, my one small (non-technically oriented) client texted me yesterday, in a panic because emails were bouncing. Apparently, the hosting provider had a bit of an outage.
@TheRenamedException I'm pretty sure he knows better than use me as tech support. Though, I don't mind helping out with reasonable requests. Especially ones that help keep his checks flowing in the door.
The Order of the Black Swan () was a short-lived chivalric order founded by Amadeus VI of Savoy in 1350. It was defunct by 1364, when Amadeus founded the Order of the Collar in its stead. Along with Amadeus, Amadeus III of Geneva and Galeazzo Visconti were the "great lords" (grans seignours) of the Order. At the time of its founding, the existence of black swans was unknown to Europeans.
The order was originally composed of fourteen knights. The requirements of membership were the possession of a charger and a palfrey, and the ability to serve at one's own expense for one week whenever ...
@PopularDemand The basic jist of the of the book is that some numbers we can estimate/predict (i.e. height/weight of a human) others we can not (highest income of an individual, stock prices, most economic data).
So, we need to evaluate what kinds of things we can predict and what we cannot. The idea of the black swan seemed ludicrous for quite some time, until they were discovered in New Zealand.
The book really struck a chord with me, with regard to risk and forecasting.
Attention PSE mods: prepare for "Was X originally designed for a toaster?" posts for every programming language X I can think of. If you attempt to close them I'll jump on meta with complaints of Java favoritism
the -1 without comment for an otherwise upvoted non-cw post is just annoying and doesn't help anyone (since the comment could help steer people in the right direction, both the post owner and visitors)
