Lol, negastars
@JasonC Or.. that everyone on the island is a ghost.
A: What is a "hat"?

nicaelHats are invented to bring fun! Hats are loved by everyone! Hats - main subject of meta disputes (maybe debates there will better suit). If you hate hats, aware of cats1, They can hunt you down and bite you to death! Await for another fate if you love them, A unicorn will bring you some tasty j...

Why did you have to go there

Spoiler alert.
@JasonC I've already patented that keyword. That'll be $0.25US.
(just kidding, I have no idea what you're talking about)

@LynnCrumbling twitter.com/negastars prior art
FSV "art"
@JasonC No no no... The profile for "Nega Star" is a totally different concept. My term is a negastar. <- no space.
Well.. that was fun. Time to go back to work.

This OP responded to comments and the close vote and edited it to improve. stackoverflow.com/questions/27108409/…
Q: For what is clc.stackoverflow.com used?

MoosemanWhen loading a question, I noticed calls to clc.stackoverflow.com. Upon loading the subdomain's landing page, I only get this uninformative message: Oh, hi. I didn't see you there. SE's CDN has a thorough explanation on it: This is a fast, cookieless domain intended for static content d...

I'm not only who post cat gif, cat.. :D

Cats are very dangerous creatures for you if you don't like hatz!
Q: winterbash2014.stackexchange.com is broken

MoosemanWhen I open winterbash2014.stackexchange.com I get The Q&A site winterbash2014.stackexchange.com doesn't seem to exist…yet. This is the same message as when I visit unicorns.stackexchange.com: The Q&A site unicorns.stackexchange.com doesn't seem to exist…yet. When I open winterbash201...

@JasonC Maybe not, but we're allowed to have fun on meta, if I'm not mistaken. — Mooseman 7 mins ago
@Mooseman How's that workin' out for ya? :P
@Andy Would you please delete your answer so I can delete my question? Thanks
Leave it Andy, make him suffer!
@Mooseman I don't get why you need to delete your question... You do really afraid of downvotes?
@nicael Just loss of rep
Anyways @Mooseman "When does Winterbash 2014 start and end?" is a valid and unanswered question on MSE. You could rephrase.
8:01 PM
@Mooseman Oh, loss of rep. Does rep really matters on meta?.. ;)
@nicael yes on mse but doesn't make sense to delete it
@JasonC Done. Thanks
Look it's making a comeback, you're back to -5. You never know.
@nicael Only meta SE
@JasonC Ohh +2 rep on it now
The only reason I visited the Server Fault election page was to vote against Evan. We really need an "I voted against Evan Carroll" sticker or something.
8:20 PM
Haha, he nominated himself?
> "I'm a respected member of this community..."
It looks like the SF elections, for all the drama, will probably sort themselves out though.
Different topic: The "Highlight to Search" extension for chrome kicks so much ass.
Oh wait maybe it doesn't. All the reviews say its spam. I didn't actually read them.
Which is weird because it's been working great... better uninstall it.
Wait no only a couple recent reviews say that.
Oh I don't know.
Bring me your spam, I'll accept it.
So uh, nice weather today!
We hope you enjoyed this episode of "Jason C talks to himself". Tune in again tomorrow.
I wonder if he realizes that Stack Exchange finally stopped sending swag for every election he participates in...
@JasonC Link or it didn't happen
I kind of like the "didn't happen" option but chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/highlight-to-search/…
8:27 PM
@animuson I would almost admire his persistence ... almost.
From what I can tell the extension itself seems OK but apparently some other malware installed it on a few people's browsers, hence the complaints. It hasn't done anything out of the ordinary for me.
When I have the chat window scrolled to the very bottom (in Chrome), the text moves up and down a tiny bit, about twice a second. Should I visit a doctor?
Hm, it stopped doing it now.
8:42 PM
> The voting hordes are the same as come through the main gates. They don't read anything, they just look for the highest rep candidates, give them their vote, gain a shiny new badge and move on.
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I chose to cry with laughter because I realised that Shog9 and the team already know this and as such know that the Noob is likely to get elected.
Oh dear what a mess.
Don't vote for me, vote for Sven, Ward, and HBruijn.
Except for the fact that his high reputation might keep nominees out who are serious about it.
9:06 PM
Why have the SF elections been so relatively dramatic? There's a bunch of crap candidates but it seems like there's some good ones too. Is that unusual?
I've seen other moderator elections with equally bad candidates but it never really spawns much conversation.
@JasonC No one likes the SF question quality, and everyone has their own idea on how to fix it. And there's history with some of the candidates & users. Sooo....
SE communities are really fascinating.
9:15 PM
@Mooseman IMO no; it was answered quickly, not the tell-tale 2-year-later spam answer. And it seems to answer the question directly and effectively. It might not be the best answer (since it doesn't present other options) but looks OK to me. Apparently others have found it helpful, too.
Sort of like if somebody asked how to burn a CD image to a bootable USB and I posted a link to unetbootin.
The second one makes it look suspicious though. But it seems harmless and like a good recommendation.
I dunno. If it's spam, at least its helpful. I don't think its ill-intended.
9:50 PM
@Bart ^
I never claimed to be the type of person who thinks things through before typing.
10:49 PM
Why does every C++ programmer feel the need to point out that std::vector is so much cooler than raw arrays in every question? Like yes, it generally is, but come on. 99% of the time it's totally irrelevant to the problem, and just confuses new programmers.
They'll figure it out eventually, it's not like it matters for their "read a bunch of grades from a file and compute the average" assignment or whatever.
Community should just detect arrays in C++ snippets and automatically post "You should use std::vector" just to take the satisfaction away from the rest of these people.
Or just add comments containing vector and ("should" or "better") to the auto-nuke list.
s,c++,(any language),i s,\b(?:std::)vector\b,(any utility),
And that one person watches the regex tag just to comment with that zalgo link to farm for promotion badges, lol.
They should add a special case for that question and just change its question ID to a random value every few minutes.
Coming soon: Mandatory zalgo rant on Java homework questions

Wow, epic bad:
Q: Single layer neural network

user414981For the implementation of single layer neural network, I have two data files. In: 0.832 64.643 0.818 78.843 Out: 0 0 1 0 0 1 The above is the format of 2 data files. The target output is "1 for a particular class that the corresponding input belongs to and "0 for the remainin...

thanks a lot...but I am done with this question now....when I needed the soln, no one appeared here. But I must thank you for being so generous. — user414981 Aug 12 '10 at 2:03
No..really...my submission was due today by 9am...I submitted my hw in the night after not getting any +ve response...Though I have not completed the hw.. — user414981 Aug 12 '10 at 4:39
But an answer with +140, and 7K views.
Here's another example I was just looking at: 25K views, +43 answer, the question closed as unclear what you're asking.

Q: Create SQLite Database and table

TinKerBellI wanted to create database and table using C#. By clicking submit button create ten database with fields.

Can be salvaged with an edit, I suppose? ^
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Yeah; I voted to delete it and I wish I could retract my vote.
Vote to reopen in compensation. 7K views suggest isn't that localized.
I can't imagine any edits that would save that question while keeping it on topic and keeping the answer relevant.
Can someone explain to me what is so localized about that question? I have no idea what it's talking about so I'm just confused.
11:47 PM
@animuson Which? Also, -1, gravatar changed and I'm confused.
@hichris123 The single layer thing is closed as too localized.
@hichris123 I was building a new resume and didn't want me dressed as a cat being on it.

@animuson But... cats! Doesn't really seem too localized, but unclear as in 'What isn't working? Why are you asking this question?'
11:50 PM
Oh, the other cat.
Why does SEDE never remember that I am logged in?
Looks like a truck.
It's mine.
@JasonC ur not 6spooky8me
11:56 PM
just so you know how it looks.
What'd you take that photo with?
@Frank That's cute, I used to ride Power Wheels when I was little too.
@JasonC It's for work...:P
Yes it's a great truck... FOR LITTLE GIRLY MEN.
Q: Extend or Remove DataExplorer timeout

bluefeetI know that we don't have automatic login for the DataExplorer but what's with the automatic timeout/logout? There have been times that I am logged into the site, maybe I walk away for a little bit and I come back to being logged out. Is there a reason for logging us out of DataExplorer? If ...
