@SmokeDetector tpu
SEDE Query Request: Are more recent questions on Stack Overflow being closed than answered?
@Mooseman No. @JonEricson has a recent post about this.
Oh, actually, I renege.
Seems poorly researched, though
His is about asked/closed/deleted.
I don't think it was talking about answered.
People seem less focused on getting an answer and more focused on their crap questions being "unfairly" closed. =D
12:14 PM
Ugh, humans.
Which is why I'm being entirely non-human in my comment "war" with that person about rudeness/directness.
No SEDE query can answer the question of whether questions that are being closed could have been heroically edited into something that wouldn’t deserve closure.
Nor the other way around: neither can any SEDE query answer the question of whether questions aren’t being closed that should be.
Halp, the user thinks not being led around by the hand is someone being mean to them. Argh.
@tchrist closed, edited, reopened, answered/upvoted
Flagged for purging all the comments.
12:17 PM
@JanDvorak Well yes, you can query whether those events did occur. But you cannot query whether they coulda/shoulda/woulda but didna.
"didna" = "didn't have"?
@InfiniteRecursion It matters little, for the question itself shall soon enough go the way of all things.
Didna :D
I give up.
@JanDvorak As you see, I’m trying to elevate the standard of discourse here. :)
Damn it, my elevator is stuck on the DOWN button.
12:20 PM
Quick, Undo it!
How does the PHP tag survive? stackoverflow.com/questions/29144359/…
@tchrist Use a paternoster
@J.Steen On the blood of innocents.
@tchrist Quite literally, actually.
@tchrist I agree. I flagged from force of habit
12:20 PM
@JanDvorak Ave Jan.
@InfiniteRecursion We’ll have nun of that!
A paternoster (/ˈpeɪtərˈnɒstər/, /ˈpɑː-/, or /ˈpæ-/) or paternoster lift is a passenger elevator which consists of a chain of open compartments (each usually designed for two persons) that move slowly in a loop up and down inside a building without stopping. Passengers can step on or off at any floor they like. The same technique is also used for filing cabinets to store great amounts of (paper) documents or for small spare parts. As a result of safety issues, many such lifts have been shut down. However, a few survive around the world. The largest of these is located in the Arts Tower at t...

inb4 Inf says "Well... I didn't expect that" regarding my upcoming avatar
Any update?
Well, did you expect one? :-)
@rene Wow that's scary
12:23 PM
@JanDvorak I am aware of the lifty version. That didn’t stop my brain from immediately launching into qui es in coelis... Hence my Ave response.
@JanDvorak yes :)
Well, then... success!
Who was it who said that there can be but one value for success yet a multitude for failure?
Was that Dennis Ritchie or Leo Tolstoy?
Huh... the C standard says quite the opposite
12:26 PM
@tchrist Aristotle :?
And in my father’s errno there are many values; were it not so, I should surely have told you so.
void func(...) throws Exception {...}
@JanDvorak You’re supposed to take care of that in private.
But anyway, that’s too much typing.
void f() throws Tantrum HissyCow;
@JanDvorak Ya know, if you use ᴏᴘᴛɪᴏɴ-e + e there, you can type touché sans problème. :)
12:30 PM
List<Drink> stomach = new List<Drink>{
  @override add(Drink d) throws Up {...}
Very funny.
@JanDvorak I’m afraid you’ve come down with a stomach bug. I recommend using the up command in gdb.
I've tried that. It just dumped a bunch of stuff on me and then reset.
@Mooseman We have a question about you.
Q: What is the plural form of "weremoose"?

AlexanderFrom The Kingdom of Loathing website: The Pretty Good Escape Subject 37, in the Cobb's Knob Menagerie, wants some spit from one of the weremooses on Level 2. He also wants to know the right way to pluralize "weremoose."

If you remove all the noise from this question, it boils down to "how do I x with y?". Is that useful? stackoverflow.com/questions/29144707/…
12:35 PM
Sounds like dupe-fodder
+ poorly researched
@tchrist Weremooses. Definitely weremooses.
Fortunately I know ****-all about PHP, so I can't find a dupe.
@J.Steen no; unclear or too broad
12:37 PM
Unclear, gimme two beer.
Don't get me wrong, useless questions exist under the C# tag too: stackoverflow.com/questions/29144760/…
@InfiniteRecursion you may want to be a bit more careful with your personal data. I've found some video of your latest vacation
I don't get the title - of course it's a waterpark for ducks!
Hmm. And now that question is getting attention from familiar users...
@Bart A family visit, I guess?
@Mooseman Well yes, but you know these pineapples: once burnt thrice shy, they are always on the look out for hitherto unrevealed strange hybrids lurking in English’s mustier corners, whether those be mere weremice or actual wereëlx and other anthropocervid lunatics.
12:42 PM
@JanDvorak ask her. I'm unfamiliar with her relatives.
they do look like Inf
They all look like Inf. But maybe I'm duckist.
@JanDvorak Family indeed.
Ducks all look the same to me.
@J.Steen duck duck grey-duck

@LynnCrumbling I tied the knot this valentine's, so it was a short vacation :D
@Bart Looks fun :D
@J.Steen A /ˈɡuːiːdʌk/ has a rather distinctive look-n-feel. I believe the flexibility of its type system accounts for this.
@J.Steen Get glasses, now!
@InfiniteRecursion Too late.
@InfiniteRecursion never fear, Bart is here. Well ... maybe fear a little
@PatrickHofman gone
@Bart /me sharpens beak
@SilentKiller That was fast :)
The downvotes are annoying, but it never takes long on SO anyway.
12:47 PM
@PatrickHofman i was just click on flag and its already gone
@SilentKiller Agile mods
@InfiniteRecursion Nah. Six fast flaggers.
@J.Steen What downvotes? Gone at -7
@JanDvorak I saw it at -8.
12:49 PM
^ downvote haters
Imperative, or query?
I know Jan hates downvotes on spam
They're annoying on slow sites.
s/slow sites/anything other than SO
@tchrist, what is that thing and more importantly how do they cook up?
That'd barely fit in my pressure cooker.
12:54 PM
@J.Steen askubuntu is very fast IMHO
@bummi Fiiiiiiine. =)
@J.Steen If the sixth fast flagger’s flags ex-flags faster, the fifth fast flagger’s flags lagged the half-fast flags the seventh last flagger’s last flag fixed.
@tchrist uhh... what?
@tchrist I hesitate to ask if you've actually been waiting to use that line.
@PeterJ duck duck geoduck
@J.Steen You seem to have overcome your hesitation.
12:59 PM
@tchrist No. Technically, I still haven't asked.
@JanDvorak latency and concurrency, hence -7 without downvotes

@InfiniteRecursion oh. gotcha
Ok. Time to Task<Coffee>()
OK, I just got into buddhism
That sounds async. Are you sure you can do that?
1:01 PM
Oh well. Here comes a new assoc bonus
Yep! My first religious bonus, I think...
I'm been resisting joining religious sites for flagging purposes.
@LynnCrumbling ⏰
Unless you count AskUbuntu.
1 gone, 1 to go, one auto-protection
1:02 PM
@tchrist How long did you look until you found that glyph?
Go get Lurrey! I am not willing to join buddhism.se.
^ star.
I do have an account at quantitative finance. That's religious.
@LynnCrumbling No time at all! I just got +1’s on my SO question with it.
A: What Unicode characters represent "time"?

tchristAs of Unicode 6.0, the following code points related to clocks or watches exist: ⌚ U+0231A WATCH ⌛ U+0231B HOURGLASS ⏰ U+023F0 ALARM CLOCK ⏱ U+023F1 STOPWATCH ⏳ U+023F3 HOURGLASS WITH FLOWING SAND ⧖ U+029D6 WHITE HOURGLASS ⧗ U+029D7 BLACK HOURGLASS 🕐 U+1F550 CLOCK FACE ONE OCLO...

1:02 PM
I already feel very relaxed over it @InfiniteRecursion
@tchrist Have another.
@LynnCrumbling Also, it takes no longer than it takes me to type ˋuninames clockˋ for the glyph to appear in my xterm.
I don't even see that glyph.
@J.Steen POB?
@rene Peace! Let's send bjb there :D
1:04 PM
It's a squaaaaaaaare.
@InfiniteRecursion Ha, sounds as a great plan!
Thank you!
Now. Why don't I see it...
I know a POB when I see one.
Point of Bollocks?

WOW.. My name in bright lights big fonts.
Pair of Bananas?
Prisoner of Bill.
Pint of Bitter?
I prefer pint of bitter, to be honest.
Piece of Bacon.
And, yeah. Windows 7.
1:06 PM
^ so POB
Only at work.
@J.Steen Comme j’ai déjà dit.
I'm in one of those low-security penitentiaries.
@tchrist Yes, I was acknowledging your point.
@LynnCrumbling You are as generous as you are fair.
I could also have been American, and have no knowledge of unicode/encoding whatsoever.
@J.Steen Remember whom you address. :)
Oh, nice new word.
@InfiniteRecursion I'm an old user :/
@tchrist I know exactly who I'm addressing. ;)
Oh, there’s more where that comes from.

@Unihedro Guide the new ones
not very successful troll
@J.Steen Penitenziagite! Vide quando draco venturus est a rodegarla l’anima tua! La mortz est super nos! Prega che vene lo papa santo a liberar nos a malo de todas le peccata! Ah ah, ve piase ista negromanzia de Domini Nostri Iesu Christi! Et anco jois m’es dols e plazer m’es dolors. . . . Cave el diabolo! Semper m’aguaita in qualche canto per adentarme le carcagna. Ma Salvatore non est insipiens! Bonum monasterium, et aqui se magna et se priega dominum nostrum. Et el resto valet un figo.
Hmm. Why would the Task library in .NET start 8 threads when I set max degrees of parallelism to 4...
He’s grammer sucks: vene should be venga.
Umberto Eco?
1:14 PM
'bout the only person I know of in recent times who'd spout that stuff.
But he’s mimicking an illiterate, so of course he screws up the gammer bit.
Except the druggies down town.
The ones who know Latin.
Of which there are none.
So, moot point!
That’s only a bit of Latin.
Most bits aren’t Latin.
Merely Romance.
It's a big bit.
An entire paragraph.
1:16 PM
No it isn’t.
Troll wars. Now all we need is Lurrey!
Tag, you're it.

1:18 PM
@J.Steen Fortunately, you can compare the English translation to see which is which.
> Penitenziagite! Watch out for the draco who cometh in futurum to gnaw your anima! Death is super nos! Pray the Santo Pater come to liberar nos a malo and all our sin! Ha ha, you like this negromanzia de Domini Nostri Jesu Christi! Et anco jois m’es dols e plazer m’es dolors. . . . Cave el diabolo! Semper lying in wait for me in some angulum to snap at my heels. But Salvatore is not stupidus! Bonum monasterium, and aquí refectorium and pray to dominum.

@Sam Oh!
1:20 PM
It's just the simple matter of creating a new chat command :D
@tchrist So, he's a bit of an ass?
@J.Steen Salvatore?
@tchrist No, he's not stupidus, I can clearly see that.
Or Eco?
Or  Eco?
@Mooseman You made my browser slow!
1:23 PM
@Sam Don't flag with sock account. Mods will be upset for sure. Remember the reaction on Andy's MSO post about flagging?
@J.Steen A 47mb gif will do that :o
Wow, it's still going in the background, despite me hiding Mooseman's posts.
> Mooseman0 commented just now FR: Only auto flag tpa'd posts.
@Mooseman So, pardon my Mesopotamian, why the frigging frock post it?
1:25 PM
Why am I crashing?
Because Mooseman.
@J.Steen I hadn't considered its effects. I flagged it to remove the onebox. I can't seeing as it was >2 mins once the lag stopped.
@tchrist Caricature of the average Tavern'er?
1:26 PM
heh, had to block all images.
There. It's scrolled out of viewport for me... phew.
Thank god Chrome allows blocking pictures.
Now the chat looks very ugly.
Anyway, MSE 10K'ers, something weird for you! meta.stackexchange.com/posts/251025/revisions
Want screenshot!
In 47MB gif!
@J.Steen That’ll coscha money.
1:28 PM
welp, it seems due to "SE Chat Modifications" userscript, images from imgur won't be loaded until I open the link (whether it's a bug or not, I don't know)
@ShadowoftheShadow Aren't you a sock?
That's not the screenshot I'm looking for. =(
@Mooseman yes indeed, prefer to use sock account for the dirty jobs :D
@ShadowoftheShadow Exactly what I'm doing with Moosebot. Only in Chrome Canary.
1:29 PM
@J.Steen oh, lol
@ShadowoftheShadow :D
@ShadowoftheShadow That keyboard-looking layout on the right... :D
@ShadowoftheShadow I meant the MSE post. ;)
@Mooseman oh, IE for my sock. LET THE SOCK SUFFER :D
@AndrewT. it's not keyboard, those are the "alt" of the avatars
1:30 PM
Finally, the lag is gone.
@Inf for the rescue!!
Except if you click the link.
goodbye cruel world!
At last!! Thanks so much @Inf! Our saviour!
@ShadowoftheShadow I know, it just looks suprisingly interesting for me :)

Also, change 404 image to Mooseman's Gif
1:32 PM
@ShadowoftheShadow ⸘“tc”, really‽ My real username is of course 𐌸𐍇𐍂𐌹𐍃𐍄 but SE is too lame to know the difference between a code point and a code unit, so I’m stuck with the silliness you see now. The bug has been duly filed, and duly ignored.
useless edit when answer is deleted. Totally clueless user. :/
@ShadowWizard What the...
@Sam Good to know. Then go ahead with it :)
@J.Steen yeah, exactly what I was thinking! :P
@Sam Maybe we should add a disclaimer in Pham's profile when we air the module.
1:34 PM
@InfiniteRecursion Will do ;)
Much like Smokey's profile.
@Unihedro Good idea.
Q: Can’t change username to an all-alphabetic word

tchristSummary: The alphabetic check is erroneously checking UTF-16 code units not Unicode code points! I attempted to change my username to the Gothic version, and I received the rather rudely rubicund retort of: Now, the string in question was 𐌸𐍇𐍂𐌹𐍃𐍄, which as you can plainly see, is entirel...
