Apowersoft (including screenshot.net and downloadavideo.net) seriously needs to be blacklisted.

Why are there two bad keyword in body's?
And can we just have "x2" instead? :p

@InfiniteRecursion Yay for the 2015 Stack Overflow Moderator Election! Primaries begin in 6 days, 8 hours, 54 minutes and 36 seconds.
So. While the "answers" to this "question" try to answer the question, I've still downvoted them for conjecture and trying to guess the op's problem rather than waiting for proper information. Was I bad in doing so? stackoverflow.com/questions/29488726/…
11:06 AM
if they don't state the assumptions, yes
I don't consider it a problem, there's no way that they can be sure that's the solution.
They're like the numerous "try this" answers that plague SO.
In this particular example, am I wrong in the way I'm voting?

@InfiniteRecursion more nominations will raise that bar

You can do that in one day. Get to it and nominate yourself
Where is your nomination Bart?

Moderator autonomation would be even more interesting than moderator autonomination.
@InfiniteRecursion thought about that some time ago, but I'm not nearly active enough recently to seriously consider it.
Am tired
After all those searches? Who wouldn't be
That would be the moderator autonomation part.
@tchrist as in. you nom them automatically?
@Bart Good decision. This room needs you more than the SO mods.
Moderator autonomation is when they leave a shell AI personality at the helm when they aren’t geppettoing their characters directly so that you can make some use of their special services while they’re awol. Like distance calculations.
@InfiniteRecursion I imagine they would say the same.
While moderation autonomination is a down-and-dirty campaign of shameless self-promotion, baby kissing, and cat gifs.
in Stack Overflow 2015 Moderator Election Chat on Stack Overflow Chat, 15 hours ago, by Unihedro
I don't have campaigns. I have no vote grabs. I am a simple person. :P
For our team telemeeting yesterday, I replaced my smiling face with streamed best-of cat videos. Not surprisingly, everyone approved of the upgrade.

@Unihedro Your thorns are drooping. :þ
@Unihedro Regexes are transcendent, not inherently perlish.
@Bart Thanks!
@tchrist Actually, it's an emoticon reflecting a tongue, except a smaller one. It's an alternative to "lol".
Top tip. Never stream the data of other's head movements to your Oculus. That is some seriously disorienting crap
@Unihedro I knew that. I just thought the thorn version more symmetric.
11:50 AM
@ProgramFOX I'm getting the same thing with Pham.
Had to update the regexes this morning.
@Sam Did you use \pL or some ugly set-exclusion like [^\W\d_] ?

Seven bits were good enough for Apollo so it better be good enough for everybody.

I wonder what the regex is.
That’s a classic code-smell.
That would be horrible.
So that's probably what it is.
I hope not.
You have to use the regex library to start to get moderately useful and standards-compliant regexes in Python; re falls on its face.

Can't. Don't have the badge. Can't be bothered getting it.
Besides. I'm not brown. I'm more of a purple.
I don't get people. Why a) answer this b) upvote this? stackoverflow.com/questions/29492289/…

gone and protected.
I think Benjamin is trying to make a mess on my nomination thread. Get a mod to help if it escalates. Am at skewl.
And oh god he is annoying.
Let's just say we don't want you for a moderator
I mean, he actively engages in negative interactions with me. For a year!
@JanDvorak no
@bjb568 Benjamin is a good person.
He's doing it in best interests of the election.
Finally what?

@Bart I totally should.
Finally coffee.
This is a great idea.

What nonsense?
you sure you want to see @J.Steen?
@jadarnel27 I do have those on occasion
I believe it, @Bart.
@ShadowWizard Yes.
@J.Steen not worth it really. Another gem from a familiar user.

But I'm holding the bat. You're holding the ball.

@bluefeet I don't think that with my level of current activity it's all that good to nominate myself. Perhaps next time if I pick it up again.

@Bart I can understand that. I figured I'd ask

Thanks for asking though :)
Luckily we seem to have plenty of good candidates this time.
We lost a peering session with one of our ISPs and experienced a network reconvergence at 14:37 UTC. We are still working on the issue.
The Cogent router we peer to has disappeared off their network. their emote hands are on the way to get it back online.
Their emote hands.
The images in my mind.
They apparently hired mimes ...
2:03 PM
Now there is a miming visual for ya
Our BGP session to Cogent is bouncing - we are disabling and moving to Lighttower. One more reconvergence will happen in a moment.
I wonder what mime-type you need...

omg omg omg. Soon I have created 1200 zip files and can LEAVE work.
Ignore, for a moment, that the question is violently off-topic. Just... ponder at the 'wat' of the issue: stackoverflow.com/questions/29493578/…
There should be capital punishment for people who leave their phones behind at their desk without setting the phone to vibrate first.
turn off the phone
2:15 PM
That'd be funny.
frankly, having it on vibrate wouldn't help either
But instead of learning their lesson, people will just be irritated and feel violated.
@Unihedro he's harassed me repeatedly on chat and MSO
Like on SO.
@bjb568 .... no he didn't, you're taking it too personal
WTF my sidebar is gone
2:16 PM
We are now communicating entirely through the Lighttower. We will work with Cogent to get redundancy back online ASAP.
@Bart Your 'crap doesn't wait' quote is so beautiful that I may just have it printed on a t-shirt.
@Unihedro it's a year of bloody history. It's not simple
@bjb568 report it and move on. Don't drag it out any further in the comments. But as a future mod you knew that of course ;)
@Bart Future mod of an alternate universe :D
2:18 PM
*wannabe future mod
It reads like a nigerian banker letter, except for software.
I wannabe the mod
But. It could also be someone entirely misinterpreting SO's role.
Like. That parcel thing could be redirecting support questions to SO.
As so many others do.
2:20 PM
@Bart Of course I won't engage more
Wow. Three year old link-only answer with upvotes. Tsk, tsk. stackoverflow.com/a/11078750/1234256

Sam Brand on April 07, 2015

Every year we ask our users to tell us a little about themselves. This year we asked our users to tell us a lot.

For 2 weeks in February 2015, we ran a 45 question survey. We asked where you live, what programming languages & frameworks you use, how much money you make, how much coffee you drink, and whether you prefer tabs or spaces when writing code. More than 26,000 of you responded, making this year’s survey quite possibly the most authoritative developer survey ever conducted.

A few findings: …

"You use JavaScript. You love Swift. And you want to code in Node." Hipsters.
WHAT?! More people prefers tabs to spaces?!@ Blasphemy!
> And you prefer tabs to spaces at a ratio of 4:3.
The battle begins!
2:34 PM
This survey sucks
@Sam What if you configured tab to convert to spaces?
Who doesn't?
Official statement:
Benjamin and I have a complex history of interactions on main SO, chat, and meta, mostly deleted. We do not get along with each other so I have tried to avoid him for a year after negative experiences. He has actively tried to keep the issue going and brings it up whenever he sees me, possibly because of a personal grudge after a disagreement on how to respond to a specific low quality question – but I'm not sure, and he does not make it clear what his intent is. He has started a stream of hateful non-constructive comments on my nomination post which I think should be de
But, I think that's the reason for the result. Many people use tab - without realising they're turned into spaces. For instance.
2:37 PM
Somebody ping a mod to see ^^^
@bjb568 ^^
at skewl, on mobile, much ugg
oh. Wait. He's not a mod and won't ever be.
That's such a mean joke :D
2:40 PM
@Andy Then the tab isn't really a tab then, is it?
@jonericson see above
@bjb568 don't ping mods. Just write to the team. Use the "contact us" link
@Sam But you push the tab button
If it's this big an issue a ping is probably not the best option @bjb568
@bjb568 You just sealed your fate.
2:41 PM
@Andy Unfortunately that doesn't mean what comes out is actually a tab.
@Bart 3 day+ delay is too much
@Bart then what?
For a "complex history of interactions"? As you wish.
> Nearly 3 out of 4 developers are here to get help for their job.
@bjb568 Why did you post this here instead of in your nomination thread? Or the election chat room? Either place will get you more views from people that are going to be voting
@Andy it's for mods
Not for everyone.
2:47 PM
Whoa, I never expected this to be so high:
> I'm self-taught: 41.8%
^ Trumps all other "education" answers.
@bjb568 It's labeled "Official Statement"
For mods!
And snoopypeople who will come try to use my own words against me or something.
@Sam Self-education implies passion, and a lot of involved devs - and survey-answerers, conjecturaly - are passionate about what they do. =)
I want to know what falls under "Other" stackoverflow.com/research/developer-survey-2015#tech-os

@Mooseman Or pretentious people who don't consider their operating system to be unix, or linux.
