SE seems to be unborked.
"GMT" WHAT IS THIS THING
WHAT'S WRONG WITH UTC?
 
It's the same thing.
GMT = Greenwich Mean Time
 
Yeah, but it's weird if they use GMT and UTC in the same sentence.
 
UTC = United Time Coordinated??
 
I get it.
 
That... doesn't quite work, but...
@bjb568 Where?
 
Coordinated Universal Time -- how does that turn into UTC?
 
French or something.
 
@bjb568 Huh yeah that is weird.
 
Huh.
nice pic d00d
Any reason why querystring breaks onebox?
 
12:07 AM
We are about to re-join our DR data center into the secondary SQL cluster. We *hope* this has no impact.
Brace for impact.
 
@bjb568 Which is the WTF timezone again?
 
We are about to re-join our DR data center into the secondary SQL cluster. We *hope* this has no impact.
 
@hichris123 Because they needed to choose something that didn't offend either the English by being French nor the French by being English, so they chose something that was wrong for both. I'm not kidding: this is the true reason.
 
@tchrist All of them.
 
@tchrist 'cause obviously the French and the English are the only two people groups out there. That's... quite strange.

@bjb568 Sorta.
@tchrist Jon already said that.
 
@hichris123 Be that as it may, it’s true. I could look it up.
 
@bjb568 Yeah, but it claimed it was a "compromise" -- not really. It's more of a mutual "Let's choose something else".
 
@hichris123 invents new language just to offend others that we have UTC make sense

Suppose you work for a very major U.S. firm that produces all manner of devices horological — clocks and watches and such — and it is moving into new and more spacious digs with nine conference rooms. You decide to name your conference rooms for the nine American timezones. Question: should you shift them for DST? :)
@bjb568 Zulu is more pronouncifical.
 
euatisi
Hm… should i have the shadow vowel in or out there?
 
12:16 AM
Meeting in Hawaii at 3pm Eastern. Meeting at 9am Mountain in Central.
+1 for DST.
@bjb568 Wait, I thought Samoa was UTC-11 not UTC+14.
 
aragh
IDK
 
Dateline.
@bjb568 You’re a programmer: you’re expected to know this shtuff.
 
Oh wait, there are two Samoas!
 
oh noesa
 
12:21 AM
There’s Samoa Samoa and there’s American Samoa!
How could I have been so silly? Time for some R&R in the V.I. — either of them.
@bjb568 That’s awfully good. I have so been there. Again and again and again. I love how he says he doesn’t do Ozzie accents. :)
We’ll see whether he gets to February 30th in Sweden.

Bad timeouts.
Green forever.
Still green.
Bad timeouts.
I love how there are so many versions of Universal Time to choose from.
 
12:39 AM
Test?
All works for me.
 
Universal Time comprises all of UT0, UT1, UT1R, UT2, and UTC. GMT=UT1 && UTC ≠ UT1 ∴ GMT≠UTC. UT1−UTC=DUT1. HTH&HAND.

helpmeplzi have two codes both are acting different on two different pages on one of the pages it plays display the image using src on other page it gives the direct links for the image below are samples of my codes any help will be appreciated. HTML <img id="image1"src="url"> <a id="image1" href="url"></a

first question off the front page.
 
not anymore
 
nuked their suggested edit - it sucked
 
All I have to do is go down the front page.
 
this is why we need better quality filters / more CVs
the site is not self-explaining its policies good enough & the tour isn't forced
 
Or less CVs. If only 2 CVs are required to close in the first 2h of question asking, it'll be a lot easier to keep up with the constant flood of crap.
 
But then you get a squad causing dismay.
And dupehammers will become less powerful than they are.

@2mkgz I don't think either of the answers there are good. :P Having unemployed programmers != there is no shortage of workers. Also, depends how you determine if one is unemployed or is employed (does an internship could as employment? being hired & promptly fired? is this self-reported data?)

Unless there's a separate rule for Unsalvageable that I don't know about.
 
> 73% of questions triaged as Unsalvageable get closed and/or deleted
seems to be doing the same... just that for that 73% there's more friction
 
A lot of reviewers votes Should be Improved even when posts are closwworthy :/

@Braiam But that does not mean "closed/deleted in 9 days". There is no reason why "Unsalvageable"-rated post should ever live longer than "SBI"-rated post.
