@JanDvorak Maybe? *shrug* Downvoted and VLQed it anyway.

Q: Operating Systems: Mac vs. Windows vs. Linux

user402442I want to know everything there is to know from the ground up between Mac Linux and Windows. How Mac handles programs vs. Windows?Windows vs. Linux ? What is the difference in what happens when each one starts up etc. ? I know that Macs can get viruses, but no one really develops viruses for Ma...

@IlmariKaronen But... but... it fits the doorknob so perfectly! :P

@inf please kick bjb for posting a 2.4MB image!
every heard of image compression @bjb?
whats the /file to see vote history on a post?
@UndotheSnowman is getting very close to 20k on meta.SE!
@bjb568 So what is that? Besides a U.S. / Europe population map, I mean.
It's an internet population map. Where all the IPs that responded to a ping are.
12:47 AM
@bjb568 Sorry, too tired to start fixing that. I'm trying to get off the laptop and get to sleep.
Well, night!

@bjb568 It's an html website, the calculator is built in javascript but the script used to record the keys could be any. I'm not too sure, but I would think javascript. — John106 2 mins ago
@SmokeDetector Whenever I see a title with only two words I feel tempted to edit it into fake Latin and pretend its a Harry Potter spell

What, you can't just add us to everything? Screw you, Google!
Eh, needs to be just 2 words.

Anyone around who knows C and/or C++?
follow reply arrow, @bjb568
1:22 AM
@hichris123 I can guess at it :/
@UndotheSnowman Maybe. It has to do with memory management (calloc).
Then no
People still manage memory?
1:23 AM
I've been blessed with not having to deal with memory stuff for... years.
@bjb568 In C, yes.
@UndotheSnowman I know, right? :/

There is no definition isolated from context. The word used in different contexts and means different things. For example, "an infinite set" and "as x -> infinity" are defined separately.

@Shoggingthroughthesnow buht leer creepy
Three users collected all 35 hats available so far. The remaining 3 will not present any difficulty. So, unless there is something super-secret, there will not be a single WB winner.
Resolution hat had the potential to be nontrivial, if it was "delete 1000 comments" instead of "10".
For myself, I resolve to delete at least that many.

Alright, time to write unit tests! How exciting...
@Doorknob冰 What's this for?
Believe me, tracing down memory issues in C++ is worse.
3:07 AM
What is the "triage queue"?
I'm getting access violations and ugh.
And @Doorknob冰, you can give me my hat back, now :P
Q: Help us test question triage!

Shog9tl;dr: there's a new review queue. It'll be getting somewhere around 1-2 questions per minute. The only thing they have in common is that the system is unsure of what to do with them. Some are great, some are awful, some are in-between. We need you to help the system decide which category these ...

@hichris123 Thanks!
@Shokhet Yours doesn't even fit. :P
3:09 AM
Next SO goal: get to 500 rep to try triage. Anybody wants to put 250 bounty on an easy Matlab/Scilab question? :p
You guy's hats are way too big for ya
@Frank I don't have a head for my hat :P
I'm wearing it on the whole icon
your fault
@Behaviour If you help debugging my program, sure! (yay C++!)
3:11 AM
@Frank Yours doesn't fit either! Everyone's so lazy... :P
@Behaviour If you write my boring unit tests, sure!
@Doorknob冰 better than yours sonny
@hichris123 Trust me, you don't want my help. I have some files with extension .cpp within some zip in some zip in some zip...

@Behaviour It's better than my own help, trust me. Currently I'm like "what would happen if I did this? Oh, that did nothing. ten minutes later Why don't I try that again? Grr, still doesn't work!"

Came to see if bjb gets kicked for his botling, it's fun
7 hours ago, by Infinite Happiness
It started as a LQ botling in the Tavern @DroidDev, and has now evolved to a troll :P
A: Do answers need explanations / does the answerer need to know why it works

@Frank You enjoy using the zwnj, don't you? ;)
<!-- these are easier :P -->
but zwnj confuses the non-techies more effectively :P
^ Not zwnj, but MathJax hack. Still the highest score/length ratio on Mathematics
3:30 AM
Meh, one more ping from the den, now I am ignoring invite(2)
@Doorknob冰 doooo iiiiiit
@bjb568 ... do you want to write them for me? :P
@DroidDev Please stop over-analysing why I moved 4 messages from the Tavern. It's really getting boring. I didn't do it to feel good or whatever. Your ranting over it and judging my character based on that is really going overboard. Move on! It's a trivial thing for me, so no more pinging me for that please!
@Inf You shouldn't move random messages around.
@Inf Is it because you're a duck?
@Inf Do you feel jealous of my bot?
3:36 AM
See @bjb568, that's a nice way to say that. If I do something wrong, please let me know (like you did just now) :)
… I wasn't serious. I was replying to your complaint to DroidDev in a mocking way.
Ahh, ok
Yesh, I feel jealous of your botling @bjb568 :D
