The Retro Fan hat made me uncouth, and thus I won't use it :(

lol what

> How can we spend so much time working in or on future or imaginary worlds when our own is in dire peril?
Is this a joke?
> I needed to drill a hole with my new drill, but the small display panel read: “Software Drivers out of date, will download new versions shortly” RANT?
Such exemplary questions.
 
4:41 AM
Is there any way to invite someone to a chat if they aren't already in one?
 
Should be an "invite user to chat" button on their chat profile. Or do you mean they don't have a chat account at all?

Q: Can any user be invited to chat?

MartinCan all users be invited to chat? (Assuming they have sufficient reputation to talk in chat, that is at least 20 reputation points.) Does every user have a chat profile? I have tried to search a bit here on meta and the information seems to be contradictory (emphasis mine); In CW answer to How...

 
@forest My drill has a USB port ;p
(for charging, which actually seems like a brilliant idea)
 
5:06 AM
Can USB supply enough current though?
I mean it's what, like 2A max or something?
Might not be enough for a high-power drill.
 
not really high power
5v presumably charging 2x 3.6 v batteries in parallel
its low power anyway
 
> Do you believe watching TV is Better than or Worse than posting photos of your meals on FB for, you know, your mind, your career, your health etc?
Simply amazing.
@JourneymanGeek Ah. I've used an assortment of drills and some are really powerful.
Not even big drills.
 
eh, needed this for slow speed and tiny holes...
 
They're almost never rechargeable because batteries can't safely supply the power they need in the form factor required.
 
really tiny holes
 
5:08 AM
Ah
 
hah.
@forest actually, I watch this youtube channel where a guy builds post and .. something houses...
 
Something houses?
 
and almost all his job site tools are battery power, and a lot are insanely powerful
like 2 inch holes feet deep
RR buildings
 
Biggest I've used required I hold it with two hands lol.
 
I can't remember lol
 
5:09 AM
I guess battery tech has improved since I last used power tools.
 
Quite a bit
 
I still have a bunch of NiCd AA chargers. :D
 
that's tech as old as your phone.
 
Well they still work!
 
Li PO and Li FE batteries have insane energy density
 
5:11 AM
I have a few NiMH batteries too but I probably lost them.
 
and can go off like fireworks
 
True.
The nasty thing about Li though is if you leave it with low charge for too long, it dies.
Little crystals build up as it naturally discharges, and those crystals will rupture it from the inside if you try to charge it up again after that (actual physical stress!).
I prefer the batteries that I can just leave on the shelf with no charge and know that they'll be perfectly fine next time I charge them up, sans maybe 10% capacity.
 
6:02 AM
Woah, so many people...
Are you guys real?
Seems to be.
 
Nope
we're all figments of Shog9's imagination
more seriously - weekends tend to be quiet
 
@Shog9 And that's all you could make up?
 
seemed appropriate
also I just spent sunday morning ankle deep in mud
 
Perfect.
 
also your hat is a little too perfect for your ava
Hi @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ
 
6:12 AM
Retro Fan is really tooo perfect for me.
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
Ok guys, I have to go.
 
6:30 AM
@VerNick Nuh-uh. Real? Far from it.
 
6:40 AM
@JourneymanGeek Morning Singapore
I have a sudden urge to misspell it as Signapore
 
Probably a real place
 
I'm hungary...
 
6:56 AM
@andmyself Do you know Irene Jim? Me and myself and Irene
 
@andmyself Hi Hungary. Never met a whole country before.
 
7:13 AM
@andmyself eat some euro!
@VerNick I'm not real
I'm floating
@Catija chat account is automatically created when the chat profile page is first visited (if it wasn't created before when the user itself accessed chat). But when the user doesn't have enough rep, they can't be invited to a room, the button won't appear at all as far as I remember.
 
@Sha is that a scarf or a hula hoop?
 
RFC ;p
 
Goodness the size of that thing. It could be a ring to effing Saturn
 
@ShadowWizard there's ways to invite people
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ or that other planet
 
Almost as big as my glasses. And I still can't read minds
@JourneymanGeek Pluto is not a planet
 
7:18 AM
the one with rings.
The planet onion!
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ size doesn't matter!
 
@ShadowWizard that's not what she said.
 
@JourneymanGeek only for mods, yeah.
 
@ShadowWizard yup
I've never used it though
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ true, he's a dog.
@JourneymanGeek size is a lie
 
7:28 AM
@ShadowWizard That she said.

@Mithrandir Murderer, there were 3 people on that train!
 
Eh, they deserved it
 
7:47 AM
0_0
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ call Hercule Poirot
 
@Loong I have a cheaper alternative: It's the guy that almost feels like the most suspicious.
It's not Journeyman because he'd be the prime suspect
Also doesn't act gentlemanly. The murderer always acts gentlemanly. Like, is a mod on Lit.SE
 
Is it Sunday on Ireland now?
 
Sure, why?
Still Friday in Iceland though
Back to reading for me
 
Its always friday in Iceland
 
7:53 AM
Yay! I got the toilet paper hat!!
happy dance
(and no, didn't try to get it so no idea how it happened. ;))
 
8:04 AM
Google's "safe search" is... save annoying. Triggers certain keywords, then blam, "Your search did not match any documents.", even for informational site like Wikipedia...
And my ISP country forces "safe search" on Google (potential NSFW image, blame the article -_-)...
 
@andmyself I just tunnel stuff through other countries
mostly to get around my ISP messing up routing though
OTHER THAN THE TIME THEY MESSED UP ROUTING TO MY SERVER ._.
 
I uses duck.com to bypass that for now...
 
@andmyself until they realise they can do more invasive blocks
 
Looking for "Doctors Search Engine Without Border"...
 
I wonder if the ncr search does that
 
8:34 AM
@andmyself well.... Wikipedia got many items which are NSFW. With images.

@SmokeDetector fp
 
@ShadowWizard Registered answer as false positive.
 
not a spammer, based on other answers.
@JNat duck! Duck on on your head!
 
@ShadowWizard wrong ping?
 
9:06 AM
I think so
 
@andmyself nope!
He got a duck on his head!
:D
 
Duck Man :O
 
That fits rather nicely.
In other news, I think that concludes my run.... for now. Until I run into more things to complain about, at least :P
 
did you get a working PC?
fixed the mouse issues?
 
9:17 AM
No
 
gave up in utter dispair?
 
I just wrote meta posts about pretty much everything that I've encountered so far :P
I mean, there are probably more posts to be made about accessibility in the mod tools, but... not sure I'm going to take that on now.
 
I'd settle for better mobile mod tools ._.
 
9:45 AM
sd f
 
Isn't "f" also white list the user?
 
no
that's fpu
 
but "k" is short of "tpu-" so thought "f" is short of "fpu-".
 
no, f is short for fp-
 
status-confusing
Well, this might change one day without notice so I'll use only fp or fp-. :)
 
9:48 AM
k = tpu-, f = fp-, v = tp-
