sidebar ended I believe
 
@Moshe My iPod has nothing important on it, my Computer isn't completely backed up
 
Ok
I think we should try putting the iPod into recovery mode.
That will give it a "different kind" of restore.
 
You mean with the iTunes Connect Screen?
 
Yea
Press and hold the power button until the Apple icon appears.
Release the power button and then continue to press the home key.
 
The iTunes connect screen is already there
My iPod currently shows a plug pointing towards an iTunes symbol
 
4:02 AM
Nevertheless, that could be for a few reasons.
 
ok, I just did that
 
This forces the iPod into recovery mode so that any other reasons become irrelevant.
Now try to restore.
Let me know what happens.
 
iPod Detected in Recovery Mode
Restore and Update
 
Yes, restore and update.
Restore.
 
yep, Preparing for Restore
 
4:03 AM
Great.
Let's see what happens.
 
What's an iPod? One of those phones that doesn't make phone calls?
 
@DanGrossman And it doesn't run Android either.
 
Oh, one of those Chinese knock-offs?
 
every single night this one particular relative calls ... and every single night I have to hear the stupid ring of the telephone ... and then the faint chatting of my Mom for the next 40 minutes...
and tonight my Mom doesn't have a phone near her, and she asks "Is it for me?"... and I revert to my previous statement...
why can't people just leave me alone!!!!
 
brb
/afk
Back.
 
4:16 AM
Tyler did you get my pin message earlier? ;)
 
@drachenstern Maybe.
 
I don't own a shovel to shovel out my car, which is too buried in snow to even open a door. I better order some food with overnight delivery from amazon.com before I run out.
 
lol, was trying to bother you after you said why won't they leave you alone :p
;)
 
trying to find some new music to listen to..
 
VNV Nation
 
which genre ?
 
@Tyler did it work?
 
I think rock. I currently listen to Skillet, Switchfoot, Lifehouse, Relient K,
@Moshe Still going
 
Ok
 
Yeah, try VNV Nation
 
4:20 AM
Dinner.
 
@drachenstern \o/
 
@TylerChacha You have good taste, why are you not posting in the Tunes room?
 
You like them too?
sweet
 
Indeed
Now, back to Forza!
 
@josh Because I've been spending the last 3 weeks trying to impress a girl, build a robot, and keep my grades up..
 
4:21 AM
Oh. OK
 
what am i reading .. dude you should not impress a girl , thats beta
 
@TylerChacha What kind of robot? I <3 robots
 
You know FIRST?
 
robots are cool though
 
@drachenstern Eh, not bad.. If this iPod gets working I might grab some of their stuff.
 
4:22 AM
lol
yw ;)
 
@TylerChacha I do
 
@TylerChacha you're in FIRST? Good deal
 
Very awesome
 
Yeah, we went to the Championship last year as one of the best Rookie teams in the world..
 
I have a composer friend, but he does Jewish music.
 
4:23 AM
@TylerChacha sweet!
 
SWEET, good job
 
Nothing is official, but based on how they judge rookie teams, we know we are around the top 4..
 
@TylerChacha I used to work with the MIT 6.270 guys when I was in high school. I didn't actually compete in the 6.270 but I played with their hardware :-)
 
Do you remember when XP came out?
Hah @Josh.
How's that iPod doing?
 
@Moshe Hah? That wasn't a joke :-)
 
4:26 AM
The hardware bit.
@Tyler how is the iPod?
 
@Moshe remember it? Hell I remember telling people why not to upgrade to it initially
 
@Moshe Still going...
I think I might disconnect and restart on a new USB port
it seems like the one in the front of the computer is very slow..
 
@TylerChacha I'm telling you it's USB 1.1!
 
Ha. One of my siblings just asked me that @drach.
 
@Moshe hmmm
is getting there, approaching that hill, but not there yet
 
4:28 AM
I'm wondering if I sohuld or just wait..
right now it is like 10%
 
I can't remember anything but rats after tonights subway ride.
 
if the back is faster I could probably get to this point much faster
 
@Tyler wait you dont want to corrupt anything.
Percentages lie. Especially on windows.
Just wait. It's worth bricking your iPod.
Dinner : noodles ? Potato chips
Oops @Tyler it's not worth bricking
 
lol, I got what you were saying
 
hehe, colbert is talking about yesterday's thundersnow (on tv, now)
 
4:32 AM
shouldn't restore override any bricks? I mean ... it should just wipe the entire thing and reformat it..
 
Might. Might not.
 
I feel so bad for it... just sitting their chugging along..
Entangled in Apple's DRM web of evilness...
it is an abused piece of hardware!!!!
and I'm one lucky SOB.... because it completed the restore in half the time....
i think it was the port just being too slow and the entire thing timing out..
 
Done?
 
verifying..
 
Nice.
 
4:36 AM
which is a life saver because I have to sit and do nothing for a couple hours tomorrow...
 
Let me know when we are done.
 
@Tyler are you on last.fm?
 
@Josh Pandora
I have an account on last.fm that I don't use anymore..
 
@Tyler is it done?
 
4:37 AM
@Moshe wait for it...
 
Haha
 
@TylerChacha ah. I rarely use last.fm but I have it hooked up to iTunes and pandora so it scrobbles
 
I'll say it is done when I get to a home screen..
err...
Setup Screenn..
 
Ok.
Fair enough.
 
I pressed complete on setup and...
it works!
 
4:39 AM
You're welcome.
 
yay
Thank You
 
Yatta!
 
Now you guys just have to give me more music suggestions..
 
@DanGrossman That site is mocking me...
 
4:40 AM
NP. Feel free to check my apps out.
;-)
 
Fun fact: It was created by the guy that made the Million Dollar Homepage and Pixelotto.
 
fun...
anyway..
 
@Tyler Moshe Berman on the app store.
 
Got anything less Techno more Rock?
 
bows and leaves what a day...
 
4:41 AM
Have you seen the compilation "Take Action 9" ... go check the whole list of artists on that album
you'll see it in iTunes
 
@TylerChacha who are you asking?
 
Anyone
 
Less Techno than what?
 
Did you see the tunes room??? :-)
 
4:42 AM
Night all.
 
in Tunes, Jan 24 at 22:34, by Josh
Liquid Tension Experiment 2 is the second album by the band Liquid Tension Experiment. The tracks were largely improvised with little rehearsal, and there are no vocals. Track listing Personnel *John Petrucci - guitars *Tony Levin - bass, Chapman stick *Mike Portnoy - drums and percussion *Jordan Rudess - keyboards Recording and Composition Tony Levin almost exclusively used a Chapman Stick to record the album's bass parts. The only 'real' bass guitar appears on the 'accordion/reggae section" of the track "Another Dimension"; Levin also used a fretless bass for the intro to "Biaxiden...

Interesting ...
 
4:42 AM
@Moshe have a good one
 
are all those in the tunes room @Josh?
 
@Josh Something a little more edgy... blood pumping war battling awesome
 
Do you want Metal?
 
Possibly..
 
4:44 AM
@TylerChacha ok edgy...
 
Hmmm... here's a list of "metal"* artists on my ipod:

Have you seen the video for 30seconds to mars From Yesterday?
 
4:47 AM
we will be turning on edit suggestions network wide in a few hours
4
 
not on youtube
@JeffAtwood nice. Thanks
 
@JeffAtwood and of course I'll be sleeping! :-(
@JeffAtwood For how long?
 
Hooray.
 
When will you be turning it off network wide after it turns into a freeforall? :p
ooooh, time to queue my edit suggestions :p
 
Will there be any page where ordinary users can see pending edits to review?
 
4:48 AM
@josh I think he means for good
 
moderators will be able to see the edit suggestions tab on the review page
@waffles also demanded that we show the count of unreviewed edits for mods in the topbar, so
 
So do the SOIS team members maintain a 24 hour 3 man on rule? Where there's always somebody up and on for the network? :p
@JeffAtwood but as we navigate across them we'll be able to approve/deny so that's not a big deal. Didn't you say it was restricted to older questions?
@JeffAtwood oooh, so you mean we should /blame @waffles huh?
 
No I think we blame @RebeccaChernoff!
 
I thought @RebeccaChernoff was here to defend herself tho
 
Doesn't matter that she didn't code this. She's fun to blame
 
4:53 AM
I'm quite certain we don't blame me.
not my fault
 
Oh... wait, you were nice to me, I am not supposed to make fun of you!
 
@RebeccaChernoff when does that ever have precedence? :p
ok ... why did my phone just randomly stop playing music>/
 
@RebeccaChernoff I have an edit suggestion for this, when will I be able to make it?
 
oooooh, haha, song change with a blank leadin :(
 
4:54 AM
LMAO ... ROFL ... LMFAO
ZOMG
 
wanders back over to the other side of her monitor to look at times for the SOTHC.
 
$('#message-479956').find('.content').text('I admit I did it'); should work from a console... (down, not up)...then hit f5
 
Stick javascript: in front of it and paste it in your address bar, faster than opening a console
 
@DanGrossman bah, you're no fun, we all know jQuery is always the answer
 
jQuery == 42;
Hmm, I refreshed and my edit reverted.
status-fishy
 
5:07 AM
Ok, goodnight all. Everyone break the new edit system when it goes live!
 
Must be my breath, had a tuna fish sandwich for dinner
 
@mootinator You should take a look at the answer I gave on your question on Code Golf
 
Could someone explain to me why people spend money on cat toys?
 
Especially the bonus part :p
 
That was mostly rhetorical. |:
 
@statuscompleted Blergh, evil.
 
Most interesting bug ever: "The makefile stutters ..."
 
I shall upvote it, despite thinking using an infinite loop is a bit of a cheat ;P
 
catsinsinks.com What is Cats in Sinks? It's obvious. It's about cats. And kittens. Who like sinks. And basins.
 
5:14 AM
That is one thing my cat has never shown an interest in.
 
Looks like a ripe acquisition target for Cheezburger network.
 
Looks like a corollary to rule 34.
 
am I being blamed ?
most likely it is my fault ... I accept the blame
 
Hey, my edit reappeared next to @waffles name, weird.
 
5:19 AM
I reserve the right to blame until after I see how wide you make the header. q:
 
lmao
so all in all, I got nothing
@TylerChacha check out Cruxshadows as well
and Assemblage23
 
@drachenstern \o/ to that as well
 
He's good isn't he?
 
nods
 
back for a bit
sudden silence
...
 
5:36 AM
crickets
 
@Moshe oh no! What did you do? You broke it!
 
tip toes into the room
 
Time to finish code from Monday and eat more awesome pasta
after finishing an article and checking in on FB
 
Oh no! What happened to rainymood.com?
 
Ya know, I never exactly got what \o/ looks like IRL.
 
5:37 AM
do a jumping jack, that's what it looks like
 
Put one arm up at a 30 degree angle away from your head
 
Anyone have a photo?
 
put the other arm at a mirror image position on the other side of your head 60 degrees away
 
@Moshe: you're... kidding?
 
5:38 AM
oh
 
@MichaelPetrotta ... nope?
 
 
@DanGrossman Bad pic, the kid in the middle isn't exactly following...
 
5:39 AM
(apologies to anyone pious here)
 
Do you get the idea now?
 
@drachenstern Yes, yes I do.
 
it's an arm up, a head and an arm up
 
@Reno: that's guiltily hilarious.

so do you know what /o\ is now?
 
5:40 AM
I pictured something dirty.
 
@drachenstern A monkey hanging upside down from the ceiling?
@drachenstern Oh wait, that's just an @RebeccaChernoff version of \o/
 
think mccauley caulkin
@Moshe lmfao, that's funny
 
@drachenstern is aware of the humour
 
@drachenstern Oh! Or shall I say, Doh!
 
5:42 AM
D'ow!
is the correct spelling
 
@MichaelPetrotta not sure about that. But it's not important.
 
There is nothing more important.
 
Now, is \o/ a positive emotion or a frustrated, negative one?
 
@Moshe positive
@Moshe don't argue, it's definitive
 
@drachenstern As in "Yay!"
 
5:43 AM
@Moshe exactly
that's why I say Yatta!
it's what Hiro would say in Japanese on Heroes
 
Okay.
@DanGrossman listening.
 
it's supposedly Japanese slang
 
> Open this in 6 tabs for epic monsoon
 
"Yatta!" is a 2001 parody song by a fictional Japanese boy band called . The one word in the song title, ', is the past tense of the Japanese verb yaru ("to do") and is also the familiar short form of yarimashita, an exclamation meaning "It's done!", "I did it!", "Ready!" or "All right!" The song was first performed as a sketch on the Japanese sketch comedy show , known as Silly Go Lucky in the United States, where Happa-tai is portrayed by some of Japan's most well-known comedians. The video features its members singing and dancing exuberantly while wearing only underwear with a lar...
 
5:44 AM
@drachenstern My friend can clear that up. He taught himself Japanese.
 
pardon the image, it's wikipedia
 
:has already seen that music video:
 
Switché for mac, interesting...
 
I would rather not
 
5:47 AM
True security.

@MichaelPetrotta Took me a moment there. Hahah. Truly funny.
 
That's how you leave it after breaking in so nobody calls the police and the place doesn't know they were broken into for weeks or months.
 
remembers that he was supposed to me making artwork for Nippon for iPad. Anybody know where I can get a high res Prefecture map of Japan?
 
2 megapixels and larger: google.com/…
several are on commons.wikimedia.org, depending on what rights you need
 
@DanGrossman Creative Commons License would be nice to have, it's a "commercial" game, if that's what you mean.
 
5:50 AM
After watching Yatta, google recommends I watch Hot Girl Loves Men In Diapers.
 
@DanGrossman why would you watch it?
 
Yatta was funny, and fun :)
 
@Dan - Perfect! Thanks.
I can black&white-ize it and change it up a bit. SVG FTW!
Thank you @DanGrossman. Now, bows Good night to all.

really :O ?
 
5:55 AM
They sold over 8 million of 'em in under 2 months
Compare that to, say, the iPad, which sold less than a million a month at its height
 
8 million? I should probably learn what the heck it is, then.
 
it looks cool on video ,, i want to get some hands on
