But she does use her hands backwards :\
 
With that whole DVORAK nonsense? True, true.
 
I meant she's a southpaw
 
Oh, she's left-handed too? Hmm, I might have to make less fun of her then.
 
That is my understanding
Yah, I found it in the mod lounge transcript:
> I am left-handed, but that has nothing to do with my smileys. (:
I don't think I can onebox it reliably (nor should I :p)
 
@drachenstern She said that in a comment also

Bonus points to @RebeccaChernoff :D

Q: Graduated sites show "sketchy" offline page

Rebecca ChernoffThe Area 51 sites that have graduated (WebApps, Webmasters, Gaming, Cooking, etc.) show Stack Exchange Beta on their offline page as seen below. Shouldn't the name and logo from their graduated design be used instead of the sketchy design?

 
@TheRenamedException I bet she's one of those girls with really pretty handwriting

12:17 AM
.... That just makes me sad.
 
Microwaves are confusing. Not her fault. You type numbers in and sometimes it takes them as seconds, sometimes it takes them as minutes and seconds, on the same machine.
 
Math is hard ... let's go shopping
 
She's not confused by math, but by inconsistent formatting
 
I do find it hardly believable that a microwave would accept "777" as a valid input
(as 8:17 I guess?)
 
Mine does, anything 3 digits is M:SS
hmm
lets try!
 
12:20 AM
@DanGrossman yay engineers! go break stuff!
 
Yes, it cooks for 8:17 on input 7:77
See? Microwaves are confusing.
 
the microwave I have as a (+) and a (-) button.
 
My microwave does everything in minutes.

Oh wonderful, I see y'all have had fun while I've been away. |:
 
12:26 AM
@DanGrossman Are you still here?
 
Did you just nuke yourself for 7:77?
@DanGrossman OK good. I was concerned
@RebeccaChernoff gulp
 
Google has determined, from tracking me across the web without software or permission, that I am a male interested in discount coupons, photo sharing, web services, online video and TV comedies
 
If I encrypt 16 bytes of data with a 128 byte public key
how long is the output?
 
@RebeccaChernoff why? because we've discussed you being a southpaw and we've been blowing stuff u pin microwaves?
 
12:27 AM
Depends on the encryption algorithm

Q: Encrypted data size using RSA encryption (RSACryptoServiceProvider)

HemantI need to use some encryption mechanism in one of the project I am working on. I was exploring RSA encryption and wrote some sample programs to learn. I understand that block size of RSA encryption is 16 bytes. So I gave the string "12345678" as input to below function: public static string En...

16 byte input, it's your question.

Q: Incomplete Tags page after typing part of a tag name

GillesThe Tags page is not refreshed correctly when I type or delete characters in the text box. Steps to reproduce: Visit the tags page (either the popular or the name tab will do). Type some text in the box, say a. I see a list of some tags containing a, filling less than a page. Not all of them, ...

What timing :P
 
@RebeccaChernoff It's all been in good fun :-)
But seriosuly @RebeccaChernoff I did get an email from a guy named Adam who had a backward smile in there
Very backwards. He's smiling that I sent him the wrong PCI DSS SAQ form. Now I have to fill out another one of these things
>_<
 
@TheRenamedException I'm not sure why this is so notable. (:
 
12:34 AM
@RebeccaChernoff First person who has ever emailed me a (:
 
Nobody else has ever used that emoticon in the history of the internet.
 
I call shenanigans! I see it on Facebook all the time!
 
@RebeccaChernoff I never do!
 
Google is never wrong.
 
It is now. (:
Gah, waking up "early" this morning after being up late has me dragging now. ):
I need a second wind!
 
12:40 AM
 
Caffeine!
 
Got that 2:30 feeling?
 
Caffeine isn't helping. ):
 
Ask someone nearby to slap your face. It's invigorating.
:orders $275 in Amazon.com gift cards from Visa Extras website:
 
@RebeccaChernoff 15 minute nap!
 
12:45 AM
That would turn into waking up tomorrow morning. >_<
Heh. There's a 5-hour energy commercial on tv right now.
 
Your interpretation of 15 minutes confuses me.
 
Clearly Rebecca is travelling at near light speed and we're outside her frame of reference
 
@RebeccaChernoff exercise?
 
Time dilation is a phenomenon (or two phenomena, as mentioned below) described by the theory of relativity. It can be illustrated by supposing that two observers are in motion relative to each other, or differently situated with regard to nearby gravitational masses. They each carry a clock of identical construction and function. Then, the point of view of each observer will generally be that the other observer's clock is in error (has changed its rate). Both causes (distance to gravitational mass and relative speed) can operate together. Overview Time dilation can arise from: # the ...
 
Not strenuous, but get up and move around enough to get your heart rate up a little

The only version I know of slap over IP is a nice suspension.
 
@RebeccaChernoff ): Tried music?
@DanGrossman I refuse. If I were to do this she would return the favor with her BANHAMMER
Right Becca?
 
Wrong. Ban is so web 1.0
 
12:57 AM
 
Meh.
 
@DanGrossman I could use that to express my displeasure at the PCI security counsel right about now
 
Why? What's today's frustration?
 
@DanGrossman meh.
 
1:03 AM
@DanGrossman Well it's my fault but I filled out the wrong PCI SAQ. But I did so because their website if freaking confusing
 
'Ello @Zypher
 
howdy
 
My SecurityMetrics subscription for quarterly PCIDSS scans ran out, I wonder if anyone will notice.

> The performance is significantly improved from 15 hours previously to just 5 ½ hours now.
Apparently I did good, hooray.
 
@RebeccaChernoff I guess none of us own any shocking domain names.
@TimStone yey!
 
Though even five hours seems way excessive, but it's nifty anyway, heh.
 
What takes 5 hours?
 
A data-intensive process. :P
 
1:15 AM
Good, This tavern only shows up on page 6 of Google results for my name. whew safe so far!
 
@TheRenamedException Hahah
 
Oh actually it's the Town hall Discussion, LOL
 
@TheRenamedException im sorry did you just ask me to set you name on meta?
 
Also I am shocked at how many Josh Gitlins there are. Apparently we are multiplying.
 
I feel like that has the potential to be worse, on account of all the "I really should be working instead of doing the Town Hall" ;)

I'm #2 for Josh Gitlin but #1 for Joshua Gitlin
 
The first thing that comes up that's actually me is my SO profile, heh.
 
Second is Gaming. :P
 
Let's see what comes up for Becky...
 
1:22 AM
I'm cited as a reference by over 200 wikipedia pages.
needs less nofollow
 
@DanGrossman soip (SlapOverIp). I have that domain name :-P (I think)
 
Since getting hired @RebeccaChernoff google links have become much more relevant
 
Anthony Ferrara?
 
never did anything with it...
lol
Yes
 
Love Road, how sweet.
I don't live at the address in my WHOIS data.

I don't either for most of them
 
i put my mom's address
 
@ircmaxell You're super into Joomla?
 
Not anymore
I was at one point in time
 
@TheRenamedException oy
 
You wrote your own CMS called Abillo?
> <meta name="generator" content="The Abillo Experience" />
 
1:27 AM
hehehe
:-P
that was a half-completed project
 
@RebeccaChernoff That all? Calling you "Becky" elicits a simple "Oy" response? @MichaelMrozek and @PopularDemand will be so dissapointed
 
I once loved a girl named Becky.
 
in The Tavern hallway, 5 hours ago, by Popular Demand
You go towards Becky. When you call her name, she swings around, and you see that she is carrying a banhammer. The last thing you see is it glinting in the sun. GAME OVER
 
it's kind of disturbing how much info you can get with google. Then again, I haven't done a good job trying to hide it

1:30 AM
The Lounge
This cozy lounge lies directly above the Western Hall.  A warm, circular
fireplace in the middle of the room burns brightly, and a spiral staircase
next to this leads downward into the main hall.  A bookshelf dominates the
eastern wall, while a sofa rests beside the fireplace and a love seat sits
in a far corner.  The lounge is usually a very quiet place.
Exits: north east west down
The circular fireplace illuminates and heats the room.
 
Good call on my part actually doing work today, I clearly dodged a bullet on that one.

Crossroads in the Wilderness
The small dirt path from the west develops into what looks to be an old roadway
that runs far off to the east. The remnants of ancient bricks litter what was a
very well built road, ages past. To the northeast, a weathered trail leads off
through a path of bramble bush and yellowed grass, and disappears into a thick,
dark forest. Far off to the east, under the haze and gloom of thick grey clouds

@JeffAtwood That's a good idea
But what about people who don't have enough rep for review? (Or is there no rep requirement?)

Jason PlankLast month, the flag limits got an increase based on rep: In order to encourage more flagging, we have increased the number of general moderator flags available to 10 per day, plus one per every 1k of reputation, up to a maximum of 100. So if you have 15k reputation, you now have 25 moderator...

 
@JeffAtwood, is that true even if I've flagged them from 'elsewhere' (i.e., clicked through and flagged from the post?)
 
not a bad idea
    // strip out all posts I already flagged
    if (Current.User.CanFlagPost)
    {
        var flagged = Current.DB.ModeratorMessages.Where(m => m.UserId == Current.User.Id && m.DeletionDate == null).Select(m => m.PostId).ToDictionary(_=>_,_=>_);
        data.PostIds = data.PostIds.Where(p => !flagged.ContainsKey(p.Id)).ToList();
    }
I think I am going to show flag weight on user profiles
I want people to start optimizing for this
 
Weird that there's no overload for ToDictionary() with no parameters...
 
that could also go hand-in-hand with granting more flags as your flag weight increases
 
@JeffAtwood, what about this:

@JeffAtwood do things get removed from the list when a moderator does something, or already when enough people have flagged them?
I'm not actually sure that makes sense, by the way :)

Q: Pending approvals: allow for adding reasons to rejections

ShobanCan we have an option to enter reasons when we reject edits by other users who don't have privileges? Reason: I was checking a pending edit for a question about .NET obfuscators, and the user edited an answer to include a tool. Even though this looked very genuine I decided to check the user's ...

So someone else already suggested something similar

Seems kind of unlikely that anyone would actually go to the trouble to see the rejection reason in most cases, doesn't it?
 
so I'll add my suggestion in there
@TimStone, I dunno, at the moment you don't get much of a 'fanfare' either way...
If it gets approved you get the 2rep. If it gets rejected, you really have to be dancing on F5 to notice...
But I think that it should be implemented anyway, for quality's sake. If we're trying to improve site quality AND keep 'moderation' work down, we want people doing better edits, not just more edits. And we don't want to frustrate people with a binary 'yes/no' response which doesn't educate them about how to do better.
(I think)
Anyway, I'm adding the 'choose from list of reasons' suggestion as an answer on that question

A: Pending approvals: allow for adding reasons to rejections

BenjolI think it would make more sense to have a flag/close-type dialogue where you can choose from a number of reject reasons or fill out a free-form comment. The reasons could be (loosely inspired from here): Timid edit: Always strive to improve as much as possible with each revision - if you can...

 
YOU AND YOUR DAMN SUGGESTIONS FOR MAKING OUR SYSTEM BETTER

I'm going to make you start using Quora
 
@JeffAtwood :) You could always just open source it and let me do the changes...
But I'm guessing you prefer my damn suggestions :D
I don't mind you rejecting my suggestions as long as you provide a reject reason. :D
 
Ah, the joys of nitpicking client-side features. ;)
 
@Benjol we're changing it so ANY live mod flag on a post, strips it from /review
 
6:18 AM
@Benjol You have to learn from @TimStone. Poke through and fix the javascript at the same time @balpha is doing it. But don't let anybody else know, especially not @balpha.

            // strip out all posts currently flagged
            var flagged = Current.DB.ModeratorMessages.Where(m => m.DeletionDate == null).Select(m => m.PostId).ToDictionary(_=>_,_=>_);
 
@RebeccaChernoff In my defense, I totally mentioned it each time :P
 
status-rejected-as-insufficiently-awesome
 
@Jeff, rats, I should have made a question on meta, I'm never gonna get that Feature-Request-Status-Completed badge :)
Just a question as I have two mod's attention.
Did I do the right thing there? comment but no flag? Or should I just have flagged?
 
6:21 AM
@Jeff, sorry, blocked here :( (if that was for me)
 
ah, the land o' chocolates
 
@Jeff, no, just the company with bored sysadmins who suggest websense to control freaks in HR :(
 
I'm trying to test something that requires the edit suggestion indicator to be in the top bar, and people keep approving the suggestions before enough pile up. People need to start slacking more

flag weight distribution so far
 
@JeffAtwood, what does it mean? Is it just a magic number?
 
6:34 AM
it means those users have filed more successful flags
 
(let me guess, you start at 100 by default, and you go up 5 if your flag is upheld, and down 5 if your flag is rejected?)
 
I'm assuming so, it is Marc's code
 
There should be a badge for people who hit a certain level
 
@JeffAtwood, and is that actually used yet? Does the moderator get to see the 'weight' of flags, or is there just a cut off below which you just ignore them?
@MichaelMrozek, at both extremes? :)
 
6:49 AM
it is used in sorting
I am proposing we display it, and that we give more flags not just for rep but also more flags based on your flag weight

I'd be down with that.
 
@TimStone why? @Jeff sounds good
 
Why would I want that, or?
