Do u care? It isn't minor, is it?
I did want to post a req to svgify The Snowflake.
They seem to use the same image from year-to-year so it might be worth posting
12:52 AM
@animuson no kitty like wolves
ok, is definitively weird seeing Spock with sunglasses
imagines a spock "deal with it" gif...
hmm, do you get hats on per site metas?
@ɥʇǝS No. They're disabled.
I see.
I thought they worked last year?
I figured out how to make hats larger.
1:05 AM
I don't know if they did on per-site Metas or not last year because MSO was still MSE last year. :P And I don't really participate on any other Metas.
@hichris123 just drag the rotation knob
@animuson oh okay :P
Eeek! The blog has been over-run by odd characters I don't understand!
Hahahaha I accepted their challenge of running it through Google Translate and I feel like I'm reading a mad lib.
@animuson Yep, this is fun :D

heh ;P
Any luck with hairboat @Doorknob冰?
@ɥʇǝS Oh yeah, I was going to try to figure out how to get that.
I just found out that existed this morning.
I've been thinking and tinkering all day but I can't figure it out.
@animuson Ahh - the power of the diamond... Thank ye.
I reread something Pinkman-style... that was horrible!
Q: How to draw in NDC co-ordinates?

I want a background with texture for the game. Someone told me the best way to do is draw a quad in NDC. How would I do ...

@HoboSapiens Out of curiosity, is the profile picture a reference to Nethack? ;)

towson.edu/ows/faultycomp.htm jajaja (sry, spanish exam comming up)
> Botto ice cream contains 50% less fat
sounds like an ad
Yup. Spammers no tienen ingles y son stupido.
Wow, I didn’t know Guugle Transfate worked here!
Huh google translate says stupido is italian.
estúpidos is spanish.
Of course.
No liquid s’s in Spanish.
1:44 AM
I have no idea what a liquid s is.
That means they can’t occur at the start of a syllable before a stop.
So they pronounce the English word STOP more like estoz.
Or estof, or estó. But they can’t do st-.
As you see, they also have trouble with unvoiced stops at the end of the word, too. :)
1:46 AM
Why don't we all just speak javascript? Much easier.
We take for granted what can go where, as though everybody does that.
Spaniards and Japanese are two of the better known groups who have rather limited syllable possibilities.
But think of all the crazy Greek words we don’t say both consonants in at the start of the word anymore.
Psyche. Gnomic.
Or even Germanic knight.
but spanish is easily readable
If you say so. :)
you just have to read it as it's written
no weird three consonant plus two vowel sounds
The phonology is rather more complex than people think.
Well, how do you explain to somebody that the second consonant in Spanish cada is the same one as at the start of the English word the?
1:50 AM
btw, my name can't be separated in syllables :P
Yes it can, because there are no phonemic triphthongs in English.
that's the catch... my name isn't english-based
Doesn’t matter.
You can’t squeeze aia in one syllable.
1:52 AM
writes "aia" in a paper and name a box "syllable" and squeezes the paper in it
DONE! >:)
A: Do “playas” and RP “pliers” have triphthongs, or are they two syllables?

tchristThe word playa is pronounced /ˈplaɪ.ə/ in English with two syllables. English doesn’t really have triphthongs at the phonetic level. Famed English phonetician John Wells, author of the Longman Pronunciation Dictionary doesn’t, believe that vowel sequences traditionally considered “triphthongs” ...

Gosh, what horrible punctuation.

And I fixed the pucktuation so you can take back your downvote.
And fixed that.
It can occur at the phonetic level but not the phonemic level. See JBJ’s comment.
@bjb568 What do you want deleted?
Oh fine.
@MartijnPieters That doesn't sound like something I would do.
I'm a real jerk.
@ɥʇǝS I know, just figured that out.
Really?! What?
I literally spent about an hour trying to figure it out..
oh bah.
Thought you had replied to an earlier message of mind.
@ɥʇǝS I did. ;)
2:03 AM
No, an even earlier one.
or hrm, maybe it was a later one.. anyway, a different question :P
2:18 AM
@animuson around?
@bjb568 You != The Entirety of Users on Stack Exchange
Around what?
@animuson ... to nuke some really bad questions.
@Doorknob冰 So?

@Doorknob冰 Yeah, like deletion.

@bjb568 Deletion does not require mods' intervention.
Q: API for a Google Keep app?

JompuIs there coming API for a Google Keep app? Would be cool to be able to create a widget for desktop.

Ha the comments on that are hilarious.
@hichris123 Delete vote applied
2:20 AM

@Doorknob冰 Most of the time, it does.

Especially the times when somebody flags.
@animuson lol
@bjb568 Not really, actually. (In fact, the question you referenced was community-deleted.)
In any case, the decline message is quite unambiguous

Q: How To Stream Live Video From iPhone To a Media Server Like Wowza?

Alexandre OSI can get individual uncompressed frames from the iPhone's camera in iOS4. What i need is a way to package them up with sound for streaming TO a server. I've been searching for a solution on the internet but I did not found much helping info. There are much more info about playing video streaming...

Gems here.
I'm outraged this question was deemed 'not a real question.' This is pathetic moderation. — user May 8 '13 at 15:36
If you don't understand the question due to your lack of knowledge of a specific field, does that imply the question is not real? What kind of wisdom is that? P.S. Do you see the votes on the question? — Usman.3D Feb 10 at 6:46
@Doorknob冰 Still, I remember on meta it said you can flag for a mod to edit if you can't (on child metas). That "I no wannu" attitude is annoying.
Can I have your delete votes, @Doorknob冰? ;)
@hichris123 You already do, for all three. :P
@bjb568 It's not called "annoying;" it's called "community moderation."
@Doorknob冰 I meant can I steal them and use them on my own account. But that works too.
There's more!

Q: Github gist copyright

cbabyWho holds the rights on github gist posting, or any other public posting for that matter, when no licensing information is provided?

@Doorknob冰 Deletion of a question takes insanely high amounts of rep that it is highly ineffective if not facilitated by a moderator which regularly handles exceptions like the post I flagged.
Q: Radio buttons not validating correctly

Although it's not a bad question
2:27 AM
It's borderline should be improved / unsalvageable IMO.

I think I know!

okay, yes.

^^ Which chatroom am I in?
quietly weeps
I'm not sure if I should have posted that answer or not @Doorknob冰 :P
Kinda feel like I'm ruining it all, but kinda feel like I found a treasure no one else could find, but wanted to :P

@Doorknob冰 Just gimme a 5k bounty and I'll help del-vote questions! :P
did it work @Doorknob冰?
2:40 AM
@hichris123 20 minutes until the 9-day closed question roomba runs.
@Behaviour Yeah I fed it like 70 questions. Should be happy!
gasp! Fast! Find closed questions not being roombawed!
> have you tried exporting the ear from netbeans and manually deploying it to geronimo. There's no reason why it shouldn't work, if it's simple enough.
I'm sad that it's actually a thing
@hichris123 best to sort by newest; the questions that remains closed and unanswered for years are the most obvious candidates.
2:44 AM
I actually I'm thriving for the last page of "active"
@Doorknob冰 No - nothing to do with it at all. Just a coincidence
I have 263 non-accepted 0-score answers, most of them on questions with no other answer. Time to go badger OPs to accept but not upvote.
@Behaviour Upvoting is good tho
@Frank I still don't have Naruto hat. >:$
@Behaviour I see.
@Behaviour That's a lot of 0 scored answers.
2:58 AM
@Frank That's in addition to 106 accepted 0-score answers. But none of those happened during Winterbash.
How many answers have you posted?
The system lost count. :(
Q: Answer count in network profile is less than the actual count

BehaviourMy network profile cites the number of answers on Mathematics that is consistently less (by 13) than the actual number, shown on my site profile. It goes like this: network profile: 1306; site profile: 1319 network profile: 1307; site profile: 1320 network profile: 1313; site profile: 1326 ...

Wow, they really don't vote much on Math.se
I haz near your rep on GL, but with less than 500 answers.
Of course, I don't dv so much
@Frank there is just this guy that downvotes "too much"
3:01 AM
Well, I do. But not in that direction.
How's the hat race on GL? Any competitors?
@Behaviour Not really.

Have you found a solution other than any of the ones provided here? If you have, I think all participants would love to know what solution you've implemented. If not, it would be nice if you could mark one of the provided solutions as an answer or comment on either of them to point out what they're missing to become a good solution for you. :) — asbjornu Apr 29 '10 at 22:02

Yes there is.
