Come on Phillip Oldham, accept my answer! Don't let the bounty expire!
 
Argh.
 
what's wrong @moot?
 
I just spent two hours debugging because I renamed a tab instead of a text area, so my document wasn't loading.
/cry
 
:-(
I feel your pain @mootinator
To cheer you up:
in The Comms Room on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 6 hours ago, by Farseeker
I once had a customer yell at me "YOU DIDN'T SELL ME A FUCKING START MENU, STOP TELLING ME TO CLICK ON SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T SELL ME"
 
Eep.

Hey @MichaelPetrotta

Q: How can an alert call make a script run without error and without it doesn't ?

HoLyVieRI have a very odd problem with javascript. If you take the following code and run it, it will run fine without any error, but if you comment the first alert, it will throw an error at line 5 (var _board = Bomber.BoardFactory.getBoard();) saying BoardFactory doesn't exist (remember that with the f...

 
@statuscompleted: your title makes my brain hurt
 
@MichaelPetrotta thats the best I could find :/
 
Okay, settled in.
 
3:22 AM
codegolf.se just makes my brain hurt.
 
@MichaelPetrotta FTFY
 
@Josh: crap, so did I. Who won?
 
You did =o
 
Nope, I did. But I rolled back to yours.
 
Have a prize!
 
3:24 AM
I mean, yep I did
good ventilation in that pile
 
@MichaelPetrotta LOL, I think yours was better :-D
@MichaelPetrotta HAHAHA
 
@DanGrossman Where have you find that picture of the monthly data dump of SO ?
 
Anyone know about chkdsk & windows?
 
chkdsk is a program, that comes with windows
 
that is correct.
 
3:26 AM
My friend a XP partition and a Win 7 CD.
 
@statuscompleted that was neat
Well, not neat for you, but neat for us :-D
 
XP just didn't boot.
What could be wrong?
 
@Josh my question or what I just said before ? I'm confused
 
@statuscompleted Sorry, your question. It was a tricky one like you said
 
@Moshe like 30 things
 
3:27 AM
@drachenstern Hah, true.

Q: page flip without button click

SaranyahariHai, I need smooth page curling for my ebook without clicking any button but clicking on any part of my ebook page...how to achieve dis?

 
can a ubuntu cd see the disk and the data?
'those are the two fastest methods I know of
 
@drachenstern s/30/9,642/
 
@drachenstern Not sure, Notepad can see it from the Win7 Recovery CD
 
3:28 AM
Ya, but at least that I learned me a lesson always check for semicolon everywhere
 
I assume so.
 
@Josh it's over 9000!
@Moshe bad idea
 
@drachenstern lol
 
@drachenstern Ok, why?
 
@Moshe same thing
@Moshe not being sure of responses when asking for answers is not a good response
but I didn't see the other answer fast enough
 
3:29 AM
Ok
Hard drive is recognized by BIOS.
 
you probably need to run fdisk /mbr
I would ask on SF
 
SU, maybe
 
Would a Win7 disk work for XP? I remember that Vista+ changed the boot scheme
Then I switched to Mac.
 
@MichaelPetrotta maybe
@Moshe this is why I don't know
 
@drachenstern Ok, going to ask.
 
3:31 AM
@drachenstern SU, definitely
 
@Josh agreed.
 
I will get people to close that if I see it on SF
 
I thought SF was for hardware

Indeed sir

Q: Will an Window 7 recover CD repair an XP MBR?

MosheWill an Window 7 recover CD repair an XP MBR? Can I run fdisk /mbr or chkdsk on an XP install from a Windows 7 recovery CD?

 
That site feels like a cup of Earl Grey tea, while sitting in an overstuffed chair in front of a fire.
 
lol
@Moshe this came out different from how I expected it to :-)
 
3:34 AM
@Josh Why?
 
@MichaelPetrotta they said the same thing on their meta
 
4 mins ago, by Moshe
Would a Win7 disk work for XP? I remember that Vista+ changed the boot scheme
@Moshe because apparently I don't read half the stuff that's posted in this room, HAHA
 
Woo, the prestigious Tumbleweeeeeeed is mine.

@drachenstern: heh. I should participate. I'm the english geek at work, with friends, and family
 
3:35 AM
I never stand a chance on that one :\
 
Time to answer my own question.

Q: What's the word for "overly proud of your education"?

JoshA friend and I are trying to remember a word to describe someone who is overly proud of their education. An example usage would be: Does that email make me appear too blank? Where blank is the word I am looking for, in case that is not obvious. He thought the word was "erudite" but when tha...

 
I'm in the top 120 users ffs
HOW
 
Wow. Haven't used SO in a while. Since I switched to Mac actually.
 
@drachenstern I saw that earlier, nice work
 
@Josh what did you think of my answer?
 
3:36 AM
@Josh: pretentious
 
@drachenstern ffs?
@MichaelPetrotta haha
 
@Moshe don't ask
 
@Josh It was close... I asked my coworkers for input and a bunch of them visited the question and sent it to me :/
 
kk
 
@drachenstern I liked it, but I have to ask @tryaria, he was the one trying to think of the word :-D
 
3:37 AM
that's cool Josh
 
"Hifalutin". Heh, like it.
 
And I guess @RebeccaChernoff couldn't (or wouldn't / didn't want to) assign it to him
 
OMG, that was my 100th question on SU!
 
@drachenstern personally I think he is being a little silly about it, LOL
@RebeccaChernoff SHE AWAKES! ;-)
 
3:37 AM
@Josh bah, it's a coworker, what are you gonna do
 
@Rebecca, we have a keyboard for you.
 
runs away
 
LOL
 
@drachenstern I recycled my obfuscated FizzBuzz and my mind has been screwed with completely already: codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/88/…
 
 
3:38 AM
I've been using FizzBuzz in this last round of interviews. Very useful.
 
@Josh saw that.
 
@Moshe is your name Rebecca? ;-)
 
@RebeccaChernoff Nope, not a star in sight. It's been seconds.
 
@mootinator I feel like that deserves a YW since I introduced you to that madness ;)
 
3:39 AM
@RebeccaChernoff: you can make a key for that too

@Josh it IS! How did you know?
 
@Josh Huh? I missed that.
 
Thanks, lol ;)
 
@Moshe sorry, just being sarcastic for a change. This is a keyboard for @RebeccaChernoff:

@Josh I saw that a few days ago, was going to post.
 
3:40 AM
The novelty of it passed before I found the effort to post it here ... as it has already passed for me here in the room ;) ... moving on ...
 
@Moshe oh. I understand now! Once again my off-the-cuff sarcastic remarks make me look like a bafoon!
 
Got stuff to do.
 
@Josh, link me to that question and user profile please. I'll try I guess
 
@Josh is confused

My iPod simply will not update..
 
YOU CAN DO IT @RebeccaChernoff!!!!!!
YOU HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY!!!!
 
I guess it is updating really slowly..
 
@Moshe it's Ok. I'm confused too ;-)
 
@drachenstern - Update on the windows stuff
 
but it has failed like 3 times..
 
3:42 AM
@TylerChacha USB1 port?
 
@TylerChacha - What iPod?
 
iPod Touch
and I plugged it into the front of my computer..
 
@TylerChacha - Which one?
 
umm.
2nd gen
 
Ok, Mac or PC?
 
3:43 AM
PC
 
mine has taken lately to freezing/getting stuck at backup.
 
@drachenstern - sorry, Windows 7 recovery disk found a missing/corrupt boot manager
 
wait, what?
 
blink
 
the computer boots or doesn't boot?
 
3:43 AM
We'll see how far it gets this time..
right now it is halfway done, and it hasn't made it this far yet
 
that totally doesn't change your booting problem
That would be what fdisk /mbr does
 
@drachenstern - I know. I have done that before.
He hasn't the disk
@TylerChacha - Let me know if this time works or not.
 
try navigating to c:\windows\system and run that
you've got a friggin access to the disk via notepad
 
ok
 
or whatever
open a command prompt from c:\windows\cmd.exe
or is it c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
 
3:45 AM
Right, true, so what would that do?
 
and then with a command prompt open, run fdisk from the C:\
 
So fdisk is installed in Windows
got it
 
of course
 
@RebeccaChernoff did it!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Oy, kids these days
 
3:46 AM
\o/
 
what did she do this time?
 
she moved a question to another user

@drachenstern - what folder is fdisk in?
 
but the rep doesn't seem to have followed
@Moshe probably c:\windows\system32
or c:\windows
I really don't know for sure

A: Can a question be moved from one account to another?

JoshIt turns out that this can be done. You just have to know the right people. And a big thank you to her! :-)

 
3:49 AM
but but but
the question has three upvotes and he has 101
 
I need a shovel :/
 
consider it your one favor. you get one per lifetime. (:
 
@drachenstern so not you can ask @tryaria what he thought of your answer yourself!
 
@Josh lol, or just wait to see if it gets accepted ;)
 
@RebeccaChernoff I am in your debt :-)
 
3:50 AM
@RebeccaChernoff well in that case ... I need a date for Friday night two months ago, will you go with me?

tell him to go to /reputation and run the recalc
 
trying to burn that up now so I'm not tempted
 
@drachenstern ROFLMAO, I think my favor might have been smaller than that!
 
@DanGrossman good call
@Josh idk, it's for something she can commit to and feel good about not having missed ;)
@Josh reread my question
two months ago
 
@moshe No good. iPod Update failed Error Code 9
 
3:52 AM
Josh don't I have you on skype? sidebar convo
 
@TylerChacha - hang on
 
@drachenstern this requires launching Skype :-)
 
@Josh indeed it does
 
One site just said to uninstall all apple software and try again..
 
3:54 AM
@TylerChacha - hang on
 
I am..
 
@drachenstern -We can run stuff now off of the C drive. is chkdsk not worth the wait?
 
that's up to you, idk
 
@drachenstern - Too late, he already made that choice. Is there a diff between fdisk /mbr and fixmbr?
 
> ...The Recovery Console, a troubleshooting tool in Windows XP Professional, offers a feature called Fixmbr. However, it functions identically to the Fdisk /mbr command, replacing only the master boot code and not affecting the partition table...
 
3:57 AM
idk that one
ahh, there we go
 
@TylerChacha - hang on
I have an idea, but some Googling is in order.
juggling some younger siblings and several tech issues simultaneously.
@TylerChacha - Are you all backed up?
