how is everyone?

Grr, with importxml I can grab every element on that page except <input> elements with type="hidden" -- where, of course, SE keeps the actual data.
 
Then use something else.
 
user259867
Yes, plan B is to parse title attributes of those spans. It's not that bad.
 
zalgoooooo
 
where??!?
 
not looking over your shoulder
 
user259867
12:13 AM
@bjb568 Not parsing HTML itself... extracting numbers from //span/@title.
 
I know.
I disagree with the answer.
 
user259867
Heh, Chemistry.SE has community promotion ad for its meta
 
 
@Yes what the heck are you doing with xml?
 
user259867

My current project is to tie together a few Google services for better visualization of SE sites stats.
 
user259867
12:17 AM
I.e., import into Spreadsheet, process with a Script, visualize as a Chart.
 
Hm… maybe XML of a site would be easier to deal with if the site was in XML…
COUGH COUGH XHTML on DD
 
user259867
@bjb568 Isn't it valid XML?
 
HTML isn't.
Or usually isn't anyway, it could be.
 
user259867
Not all HTML, but specifically of stackexchange.com/sites looks pretty XML-y
 
why not looping through the /sites API and asking for the data?
 
12:22 AM
Took a peek. The SO pages are not valid XML.
 
user259867
@Braiam That would work, but then I'd be writing a standalone script that I would have to put somewhere. A Google-based thing can be published as a web app, so I wouldn't have to host it.
 
:(
 
user259867
Also, API does not return the number of visits, which is one of the most interesting stats.
 
@JanDvorak I've wondered that too. I know I have very little use for xpath because I always find better solutions with other entity mapping or dom apis. My hypothesis is that I'm not the only one.
@JeremyBanks No.

I'll leave the "No", lol.
I love how everybody seems to look at a comment and wait for somebody else to leave the first star, then the star dam breaks.

lol
 
@JasonC that's called group behavior
 
There should be a badge for pioneering the first star on a message some number of times.
Or maybe just a network wide auto-ban for not conforming, because you are hurting the efficiency of the collective.
 
@JasonC Conform and be assimilated and you won't be brutally murdered! LIFE HACK!
 
12:51 AM
@AlexisKing I was really sad about this meta.stackexchange.com/a/256514/230261; I facepalmed in real life, and may have cried a little.
 
@JasonC Just know that, however you may feel, you didn't choose to get a suggestion to ask a question on Lifehacks.
 
And even if I wanted to ask a question now, for the sake of consistency I can't.
Yes. Yes, good point. It's OK. It's not my fault. It's not my fault.
 
@JasonC I clicked on that link half expecting to see a suspension notice.
 
My top Lifehacks tags are and . Sweet.
Ha, sorry to disappoint. I guess it was misleading.

Wow, that blog is still going strong, I haven't checked it since he "retired" it. So cash.
 
@hichris123 seems normal/fine?
 
In what browser?
Everything's wrapped in a <pre> tag here.
 
@hichris123 Looks fine to me too in Chrome 42.
 
... weird.
 
I see no pre tags in the source or the hierarchy.

Woah that's 1 MB!

so we found out something that SE needs to paginate
6000+ accepts and unaccepts
 
DDOS, anyone? :p
 
in hindsight they should've implemented accept/unaccept rate limit at the same time they did the up/down vote rate limit
 
Yeah, DD won't have that problem.

This is the correct answer - a particular user was just upvoting, then undoing the vote, over and over. While this doesn't occur often, it's annoying to see in the logs. Look for some vote throttling in the future. — Jarrod Dixon ♦ Aug 5 '14 at 21:27

Huh.
 
@InfiniteRecursion how do you have 41 rep? Looks like you were serial upvoted 4 times! They should be reversed shortly!
 
@Roombatron5000 Welcome to the group :P
 
Huh okay @Inf. Glad to see all of our ducks are in a row, ;)
 
@Roombatron5000 Yes, I saw that. Someone pity upvoted me :/
 
2:51 AM
How come I have to wait 24 hours to award a bounty?
 
@ASCIIThenANSI This time period exists to give others an equal opportunity to post a deserving answer and compete for the bounty.
 
@InfiniteRecursion But what if I'm giving a bounty to an answer that deserves it (on a question with no bounty)?
 
Bounties are primarily for attracting attention to the question. That takes time.
 
@ASCIIThenANSI Still you need to wait and give others a chance to write better answers than the existing answer. Sometimes the author of the existing answer improves their answer when you offer a bounty. It encourages good quality.
 
@InfiniteRecursion Ah, OK. Thanks

And how do you "produce" irony?
 
in a foundry?
 
^ facepalm
 
... I get it. :P
 
lol
 
Hm… a is often omitted with understanding.
 
3:10 AM
had to throw a punch line in there
 
@bjb568 I’m sure you can manage.
 
:p
 
We need more ellipsis in here.
 
……
 
Look up ellipsis in the dictionary, @bjb.
Noun: ellipsis (plural ellipses)
  1. (typography) A mark consisting of three periods, historically with spaces in between, before, and after them “ . . . ”, nowadays a single character “…” Ellipses are used to indicate that words have been omitted in a text or that they are missing or illegible.
  2. (grammar, rhetoric) The omission of a grammatically required word or phrase that can be inferred.
  3. ellipsis f (genitive ellipsis); third declension
2nd definition
 
3:14 AM
@hichris123 Indefinite article not needed because understanding is not quantifiable.
 
*quantifiable
lol
 
You can similarly have limited grammatical ability.
 
...and live in a shoe
 
@santiago stared because is true...
 
absolutely
 
3:16 AM
I like shoes.
 
Not needed, but it's an English test which would likely count your incorrect if you used an ellipsis.
 
But it's not incorrect…
 
I agreed with you.
 
@bjb568 As if we weren't addicted enough.

At least Bill Gates gives to charities.
 
@bjb568 Why can't we have a company that takes the money it needs to stay afloat, plus 5% of that to pay their employees (and as profit), and gives the rest to charities?
 
Bill Gates drinks poop water, too.

You really should not go into the abandoned missile bunkers in eastern Colorado.
But they are awesome.

3:39 AM
However, if you get arrested, you didn’t hear this from me.
 
@tchrist s/abandoned missile bunkers/unsuspicious mountains/
 
Some folks went. They had a good time. They seemed undetected. Most of them went back a week later. Those ones got arrested. I stayed home.
 
That sounds jolly.
 
A friend of mine in Colorado threw a rave in one that they broke into. I think it went on for quite some time before they got busted.
 
Happens.
 
3:42 AM
They knew they were going to get caught, it was pretty much a given.
 
It’s hard to throw a proper rave.
After all, the sun also rises.
Well, except at Burning Man where you don’t care and the rave lasts eight days. It makes all others seem like a joke.
 
Burning Man is more of a job fair for me.
 
hahahahahh
What the hell job?
 
Dude it's total audiovisual / interactive art tech nerd heaven.
 
Yes, I know.
I’ve been eight times.
 
3:45 AM
This'll be my 10th, so HA.
I'm a freelance programmer, I mostly work with artists. I pretty much make lights blink for a living. So it's always a good place to connect.
Hey, do you camp with anybody?
 
Have.
Haven't gone for a few years.
 
I wonder if we've ever met up there.
 
No way to know.
 
If so I probably just yelled at you to get off my lawn.
Sorry about that.
 
Unless you’re that guy with the funny birthmark you know where.
 
3:47 AM
You mean you didn't bring your Rolodex?
 
You know, there's somewhat functional cell phone service out there now. It's a tragedy.
 
This conversation seems to be the opposite of "kids these days".
 
@JasonC It’s horrible. I had wifi last time because I was right off Center.
Put it was nice to be on the power grid. Only done that twice.
 
Wifi is evil. There's a guy in our camp who pulls it from center with a dish; we're usually out on 2:00. Part of me wants to stop him from doing it.
 
I’m usually closer to 10.
Unless I’m at center, or near enough.
 
3:51 AM
Did you ever go to the hot springs after the event?
It's my favorite part. That and the week before.
 
I was there 11 days last time. Injured falling off a scaffolding the day before it started. Pain.
I’ve a local friend who's a ranger who always has extra get in early slots.
 
Aw, that sucks.
Yeah. It's great. It's so awesome to watch the city build up from pitch black, no street signs.
 
Yes. People don't know what they’re missing.
I don't have much sympathy for folks who arrive midweek. It’s best to arrive the week before, but that takes some work.
It didn’t used to.
 
Well if you ever go again come to disorient and ask for jason c; we can hang, and you can come to the hot springs after too. I like to go up the very first early arrival day and stay until the wednesday or thursday after. I've been in charge of the camp for a few years now so I kind of have to.
 
OFUCK
Yes, we've probably met.
 
3:56 AM
I've only been with disorient for 5 years, I was with a smaller nyc based camp called image node for the 4 prior.
 
That’s within time frame.
 
Erm... fingers...
2006-2010 image node; 2011-on disorient.
no
2006-2009, 2010-on
Oh you didn't actually ask a question. Thanks for making me do math for no reason.
 
You didn’t do math. You did arithmetic.
