Oh, damn...
I apparently took far too long to write that answer.
 
What answer? To @MMeyers?
 
@MarcGravell already committed to doing something :p
 
lol, I don't see why. The only time it seems to bite me is if I'm on my mobile and forget about marcog ;)
 
I generally agree with Aarobat's idea, but it's also flawed in the sense that people with common names would be difficult to reply to.
Though I guess an explicit reply would solve that problem, in that case.
 
Yep. It'll also take more serverside work. I think that people should just use the damned autocomplete
It's there for a reason, and it works :p
 
12:08 AM
People with short names ruin things for everyone! looks at self ...Dammit.
 
Note my excessive reliance on Cole
Granted the only ones that appear to be involved in collisions with that name would be the likes of Cole[FamilyName], Cole[Slaw], Cole[Trickle], Cole[tte], Cole[ne] ... guess which names I've heard more times than I can count (or care to)
 
Heh :P
Oh, whoops.
Was wondering why F# questions were being highlighted..
Forgot I had added that tag to check on something while commenting on a meta question, heh.
And, now it's food time.
 
12:34 AM
don't you love classy months later downvotes with no explanation? Especially on questions where the owner just posted a solution. :D
 
eh, downvotes suck but I kinda start to ignore them after a while
 
I thought you were working sir
 
right now I'm loving code I thought I disabled somehow still existing / being live in production...
@drachenstern yes. I'm supposed to be :-)
I am working, actually. this place got easy to follow suddenly ;-)
(that is to say, it's very quiet in here!)
 
@TheNeedsMoarJqueryException it happens. I think it happens most when we're all working ;)
ok, I know I got an email on a particular feature. I know that it was updated. I can see the update on my screen. But my inbox doesn't know anything about this feature :(
oh cos it was in the bugtracker :S
 
12:41 AM
That's a silly place for it to be.
 
I know right!
Which just reminds me painfully of a UI concern I really need to fix in the near future :(
and if I put it in as a bug in the bugtracker my close-happy boss will close it and go "not an issue, don't worry about it" when it breaks usability flow from the other pages of similar design in my site
I'm very touchy on what I consider "acceptable" but I understand his need to ship software more often.
not a big deal if it weren't a fifteen minute code swap
with a five minute test
 
I can't believe that I got distracted from running this code like two and a half hours ago.
/blames all y'alls
 
I can't believe I'm still here ... if I hadn't overslept my wife would be pacing
 
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
 
ok this is going to drive me crazy. We had a very old bug in our system, #244, which was actually a flash bug, and we built a workaround. Our workaround was buggy, and so when Flash fixed their bug we removed our workaround. Our bug is now back and I can't for the life of me find where we removed the workaround!
I'm sure we did though
I even rememberer taking to SO people about it, LOL
 
12:48 AM
To search!

Of course it was a Flash issue
Was that when you had the issue? :P
Oh, old.
I guess not, never mind me.

Q: Is there a workaround to the Flash bug where selection doesn't stop?

JoshIs there any workaround to the issue with Adobe Flash where a Flash Movie does not receive a mouse up event if the mouse is dragged outside of the movie? EDIT: This issue seems to affect Firefox only See: http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FP-234 Basically the issue is, I have a Flash movie wh...

> George Profenza's "dirty hack" had been mostly working for me for months... but as of 8/24/10, I now see that Adobe has marked this issue as resolved, finally!
 
Ah ha :)
 
Great, that gives me a place to start looking :-)
 
And yeah, I remember that bug..
 
it was awful, and as CTo of course it was my fault, LOL
 
12:50 AM
Well, not in the context of dealing with it directly, but playing Flash games and what not. :P
 
@Tim, our flash editor is a textarea, nothing more. so it was awful on Mac using our app :-(
I.E. a TextArea positioned at (0,0) and the width/height of the stage...
 
:burp:
 
Ah...heh.
 
(I'm a JavaScript guy, not a Flash guy, so I do as much as possible in JS and use Flash only for the font display :-)
 
<~ working on more fun spy tools
 
12:54 AM
@TheNeedsMoarJqueryException Flash... grumbles
 
@Dan will u link me the geoip png?
 
I wonder how safe it is to inject jQuery with noConflict() into an arbitrary webpage that might have other JS libraries (or jQuery as well) loaded
 
Seeing as how noconflict is supposed to have no negative connotations...
 
:searches "jquery noconflict conflict":
 
Thanks for the link. I show as 166.137.15.39 which it doesn't resolve, need to resolve that on a pc
And now 98.80.38.129
 
1:10 AM
166.137.15.39 = cingular wireless
 
> 127 right, 1 wrong, 0 ignored, 0 exceptions
 
@Dan. Who are you spying on?
 
Hooray! \o/ Done.
 
@Moshe everyone, always
@Moshe I'm building a heartbeat-based real-time stats panel to add to w3counter.com ... needs more features I can charge for
I'd like to inject jQuery into the webpages for the heartbeat stuff (event handlers to see if people are scrolling, typing... and periodically ping my server), I just don't know how safe that is
 
1:38 AM
It should be safe, the question is will it be too much load on a person's page on their computer?
You never know if you're going into a hexacore with 24GB of RAM or a Pentium3 with 256MB RAM on IE
@TimStone Yatta! that is
 
Aye
 
blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2011/01/04/… <-- clickit NAO do not hesitate do not wait you will be happy NOW
 
Without clicking I already know that I saw that :P
 
lol, isn't that AWESOME and AWE INSPIRING and just plain WOW?
 
It is pretty cool
 
1:50 AM
Why won't chat stop loading?
Grrrrrrr....
 
Because you need to press ctrl+f5 (if that framework will let you)
 
Is it funny that I can actually talk even with that giant thingadongdong blocking the view?
 
A bit
 
Hm, I had that happen the other day when I had something wrong with a userscript, but I don't think that it actually loaded chat in that case.
 
Hang on, I'll try clearing cache with window.platform.clearPrivateData()
Didn't work :( Hmmm...
 
1:56 AM
I guess it's loaded correctly...so uh...just kill the overlay? Wonder what's up though..
 
Reckon there's any benefit to highlighting my own comment/answers on any page by highlighting with a dotted border? Sometimes I can't seem to find my own responses on a page.
 
@YiJiang Hm, loads OK in Firefox for me, although I did see those event errors just now that you mentioned before.
 
After restarting Prism and clearing cache twice, disabling GM, chat now works, albeit without all the modifications I made to it
I need to try again - this is very weird
Working fine again. Grrrr... grrr...
Why would this happen anyway?
@TimStone It works in Firefox proper, which is how I'm able to upload that image
 
Ah, weird...
 
The messages though were sent from the never-loaded Prism window
Chat's autofocus means that I can still talk with that huge thingadongdong blocking my view
 
2:10 AM
About 255 results for 'thingadongdong' (0.23 seconds)
 
@DanGrossman THE META POST IS AT THE TOP AGAIN!!! SANITY HAS RETURNED TO THIS WORLD!!!
 
Anyone know if there's a way to jump right to a specific date in Trac's SVN browser?
Oh nevermind, I can do it using the Timeline
OK. This is driving me crazy. I know I rolled this code back but SVN disagrees with me
 
I may have to side with SVN on this one.. :P
 
DO NOT QUESTION SVN
 
Erm, 'ello @RebeccaChernoff
 
2:23 AM
Yeah I don't normally question SVN!
 
@RebeccaChernoff My god, it's blue!!!!
 
Erm, 'ello? (;
 
Kind of an abrupt entrance :p
 
.user-140548 .moderator { color: black !important; }
Problem sort-of solved
 
2:25 AM
@YiJiang is afraid of change.
 
@TimStone I'm not afraid of change - it's just that... that... it's... that... blue! My god! It's blue! Arrrghhhhh!!!!!!! runs out of room
 
Oh. Wait. I think my memory is what's at fault here.
 
Your RAM corrupted SVN?
 
Let's see if chat history can help me...
@TimStone my brain cells corrupted my memories :-)
 
;)
 
2:27 AM
IT'S BLUE!!!
 
Your future corrupted your present npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2011/01/04/132622672/…
 
@YiJiang oy
 
patpats @YiJiang It'll be OK.
 
If I can use this chat log to help me find what happened to this code, I think that will convince my boss chat is a productive use of time
 
@RebeccaChernoff (takes a look) It's still blue!!! (runs out of room again)
 
2:29 AM
blinks
 
The blueness of it!! It's... it's... it's MADNESS!!
 
Impossible. Chat transcripts would suggest I wasn't even in here on 8/24
 
I'd scream blasphemy, but it's also possible you hadn't become addicted yet.
 
This might be true actually. How can I find my very first chat message?
 
2:34 AM
Hmm
 
Found it
in Gaming, Aug 28 '10 at 16:54, by Josh
Hey everyone... just checking out the new (to me) chat system for the first time. Looks pretty sweet! Now I'll really never get any work done, ha!
 
And so it began...
 
The fact that you started with that conclusion....Oh boy. shakes head You're doomed man.
 
Hey at least I know myself well ;-)
So it looks like that was after I edited my question to state that the bug was now fixed. Damnit, chat can't help me on this one!
 
2:41 AM
@TheNeedsMoarJqueryException How true that was ... sadly
 
AAARRRGGGG!!!!!
 
@YiJiang you are having too much fun with this
What shape is the favorite room star?
I can't seem to get my browser to refresh shy of (I think) clearing cache
Either that or my work browser is out of date cachewise
anybody else on dba.SE?
 
@RebeccaChernoff I read that as "Now I have all the power!"
Was that a legitimate addition to the beta or a mod addition?
 
I suppose that's one interpretation. Though I can't parse your second message.
 
2:46 AM
Did you join it on A51 before it went into private beta?
 
Ah, no. I snuck in. (;
 
Thought so
Your page looks like it has a few more avatars than "it should" ;)
So how's the second day been? You still getting aclimated or are you already into full-bore assignments?
 
It took longer than I expected to go through and create accounts on all the sites and dismiss the welcome banners hehe.
More mouse clicking than one should be subjected to in a day! (;
 
@TheNeedsMoarJqueryException I think this is my first message:

You might want to check out this answer: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/66268/someone-please-call-911-silver-badges-missing/66271#66271
@RebeccaChernoff Torture! ;)
 
@TimStone WHat? A helpful first message? OMG WTF BBQ!
 
2:52 AM
Haha, I got the nice answer badge on MSO.
 
I know, what the hell was I thinking?!
 
@Rebecca do you know what your first message was? :-)
 
Anyone care to guess what the question was?
:-)
 
@TheNeedsMoarJqueryException I don't think I want to know. (;
 
2:53 AM
@Moshe nice
@TheNeedsMoarJqueryException I bet it was "oy"
 
@drachenstern - no... C'mon, a meta question.
recent
 
whoops, sorry, wrong re:
 
I was gonna say...
 
bah, they were right next to each other :p
 
...wait for it...
 
2:55 AM
there's that sound again ...
 
We all know already, shh. :P
 
@Moshe TELL US!!! THE PRESSURE
IT'S KILLING MEEE!!!!!1111
;-)
 
waits for photoshop to crop the banner...
 
waits for Moshe to post the question
 
 
2:57 AM
:whines about how long it takes to generate this report:
 
thinks the new meme here is italicized statuses
Oh, and...
TADA!
 
status-the-meme-is-status-remember
 
points up at the blurry screenshot
 
@Moshe I read that as italicized statues, for some reason
 
@Moshe congrats
 
2:58 AM
> Is there a list of features? Something to use for a comparison to irc features for instance?
 
@Moshe you don't understand what /me is from IRC do you?
 
@DanGrossman - Thank you. It's funny though.
@drachenstern - I do now, but I've never used IRC.
 
I write /me in IMs sometimes, people rarely understand
 
@DanGrossman the nerve!
 
@drachenstern - did you see the banner though?
 
2:59 AM
@Moshe yeah, you're missing out on something there
 
@DanGrossman Adium and iChat for Mac and Pidgin for Window/Linux will interpret that for you :-)
 
@Moshe indeed I did.
 
I think my first message in chat was in the stress testing room, for some reason
 
Assuming that was my first message.
 
@RebeccaChernoff the one about IRC features? hahaha
 
2:59 AM
@RebeccaChernoff Cool
