Evening
@mootinator You around?
 
@Moshe Yup
 
cool cool
 
Thanks.
Also, another StackExchange tee arrived tonight.
I ran for mod on Apple.
 
Aha.
The screenshot vaguely reminds me of the Battletech RPG
Never did finish that game.
 
3:34 AM
@mootinator Heh, graphics were done by a Allan Simpson from Chicago, with whom you've corresponded.
 
Ah yes...
 
Yup, he's good.
 
4:04 AM
@mootinator - He's gaming live now: twitch.tv/mechatech
 
@Moshe I wonder if the similarity I perceived and the fact that his handle is mechatech are strictly a strange coincidence.
 
4:24 AM
@mootinator Huh?
What similarity?
 
@Moshe For some reason your screenshot made me think of this game:
BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk's Inception is a turn-based adventure/role-playing video game game released in 1988 by Westwood Studios and based on the BattleTech franchise. It was one of the first commercial ports of the licence, and featured some of the franchise's worlds, institutions, political figures, and weapons, particularly the three-story tall Battlemechs. Storyline The player takes the role of Jason Youngblood, a young cadet MechWarrior stationed on Pacifica (also known as Chara III) in the Lyran Commonwealth. Stationed at the Citadel, Jason is learning how to pilot a Battlem...
Which it doesn't really look anything like, really.

Could be. No idea.

So, I just started looking at Project Euler
 
I noticed that its statistics page lists the most popular programming languages
How does it know what languages people use to arrive at their solutions?
You just enter a number as an answer
 
There's a setting in each user's preferences
For the language you work in
"Pen and Paper" is also an option :P
 
@YiJiangsProble_ Heh. Doesn't that kind of defeat the point? :)
@YiJiangsProble_ Aahhhh. I see.
Well that's a very crude way of measuring it
As if each person only uses a single language all the time
 
It is, but I don't think anything else would work. And anyway, I find the entire Project Euler site to be very crude
 
9:58 AM
From a web design point of view?
Or the concept itself?
 
The implementation. Not just the design, but also the user experience
The idea is okay, I guess
 
I was really hoping that you could link code samples to each of your solutions
 
There's a forum link that shows up after you complete each problem where you can post your solution for others to see
 
Ugh. phpBB. Thanks but no thanks.
I was thinking of a gitHub project
 
There are some on GitHub.
 
10:02 AM
Well, yeah, but you have to find it through the phpBB forum, right?
 
No, some individuals create GitHub repos with their own solution to the problems. For example, github.com/zengin/project-euler-solutions
 
Ideally that would be natively supported by PE
 
Well yeah, like I said I don't like Project Euler's implementation
 
I am inclined to agree
 
Anyway, there's no guaranteeing how good the individual solution are. Oh, and codereview.SE has seen some Project Euler solutions

Q: reading updated raw data

Ali Ahmadii have a made a windows program which writes in first 512 byte of /dev/sda3 when i try to see the raw data using cat /dev/sda3 in linux the data is not updated! just the first time i try cat /dev/sda3 the data is updated, the other times data is the same as the first time of call the sa...

In logic and rhetoric, a fallacy is usually an improper argumentation in reasoning resulting in a misconception or presumption. By accident or design, fallacies may exploit emotional triggers in the listener or interlocutor (appeal to emotion), or take advantage of social relationships between people (e.g. argument from authority). Fallacious arguments are often structured using rhetorical patterns that obscure any logical argument. Fallacies can be used to win arguments regardless of the merits. Among such devices, discussed in more detail below, are: "ignoring the question" to divert a...
That's a goldmine!
It's my, "See the FAQ" from now on. :)

I have two unupvote events(10secs apart) today, but didn't lose any rep. What's even stranger is that at least one of them should be vote-locked, since I never edited the post.
While it's possible that I had hit the upvote limit at the time the votes were cast, that's rather unlikely. It doesn't explain the vote-lock issue either.
 
4:58 PM
I'm looking at the suggested edit stats on an SE site and I see "Rejected by Community". What does this mean? Is it an automatic rejection or are rejections just anonymous?
 
@Szabolcs I think it might be a 'improve and reject'
 
@YiJiangsProble_ You are right, the time stamps confirm that.
