hush, I am a time traveller, either that or my brain was malfunctioning :'(
Is anyone a Pokémon Master yet?

@bjb568 or you could fix it

Hey @Quill, did you see Channel 9 warning parents that pedophiles would use Pokémon GO to lure kids to Pokéstops
I didn't
It isn't surprising, anybody with half a brain realised it weeks ago and news outlets finally caught on
One of those weird YouTubers did a video where they drove in the middle of the night to a pokestop in a local park that had a lure on it, and apparently there was a 50yr old guy in his car at the park
That doesn't surprise me
Has anyone thrown a Pokéball at @bjb568 yet? Might catch a Meowth
oh hey, story time

No, what I should've done is catch that charmander ninja fast

Seriously the new Land and Property information website (www.lpi.nsw.gov.au) is confusing, you used to be able to go in and pull out what you want with a couple of clicks, now the site is like a maze that loops through itself, you spend 15 minutes and still not be able to get what you want. 4 step process, you would thought, clicking 'proceed' from 3 would lead forward to 4, nope. 2 lead to 3 lead back to 2.
which idiot designed this gov webiste
In a few years, Stack Overflow will be a footnote in the glorious history of Arqade -- a small site that was a precursor to the gaming juggernaut.
@Telkitty welcome to subdomain hell
it's gotta start with a protocol @Tel
Land and Property information website = [Land and Property information website](http://lpi.nsw.gov.au)
it USED to work
if you can't make it better, don't make it worse
1:41 AM
wtf, going backwards
you used to be able to go on to LPI to print a copy of title search, now you have to go to LPI site, find an information broker then trying to get a copy of title search from an inofrmation broker
how to make Australia backwards
maybe their call center staff aren't getting enough work to do?
they must think people are too free and need things to do, so created more tasks for people to do
also, what available in LPI database currently wouldn't be available to information brokers for another week, yep, whole 7 days

@Quill That one was promoted to me a few days ago...
I guess because of [python]? I've never even touched those other tags.
I don't have that many python contributions (and none in the others)

Is @rene using code formatting for emphasis?!? Have you gone over to the dark side?

@Oded hey quick question... can a diamond moderator edit his/her own deleted question?
(i.e. does the diamond override what you said here?)
6:45 AM
AFAIK, they can modify it even in deleted state?
6:58 AM
nvm, I don't know for diamond mod
How does a diamond moderator differ from a normal moderator?
@Telkitty many consider 10k user as kind of moderator...
@Quill Brilliant!
7:09 AM
@ShadowWizard if 10kers were moderators I would have been banned for 1532543 years
@Oded while at it, also wonder why it applies only to questions, i.e. one can edit own deleted answer. I think I know, but want to be sure.
@Telkitty well, they can delete your questions...

Back in my day we didn't have the fancy computer-ma-jiggers. shakes fist These darn kids catchin' them Poké-mans on my lawn need to get a job. — JamesENL 16 secs ago
@JamesENL Don't worry, I don't think I will play that game when it finally releases here in Ponyville. Unless they do an huge update to the game mechanics, the whole concept seems useless and utterly broken to me.
The game is split between "catch the same monsters again and again to level up without fighting" and "fight a cpu controlled gym leader that uses a pokémon of an actual player".
Will be really fun for new players when after some months all the gyms will be controlled by monsters with thousands of "levels", while you start with 10-30.
Just think of all the fun you will have farming just to experience the other half of the game :P
And even better: until you are able to experience that part of the game, you are cut of from the only source of in game currency. Unless you pay:P
Sorry, I think that I will continue bringing my 3ds along with me instead.
It is a portable console, ye know...
8:20 AM
@Derpy the game's mechanics are a bit broken anyway
I find enjoyment in exploring for Pokémon, but I also enjoy Ingress sooo....
I need a programmable drone with cam
@Telkitty contact the US DOD, they might be able to help
@Telkitty maybe it's on-topic for Hardware Recs?
@JamesENL From the little I read about Ingress, you didn't had "levels" but just "resources". If that is true, a new player could contribute in a portal/note/whateverweretheycalled as well as an experienced player. Here, unless you are able to actually beat the other teams Pokémon, you are useless.
Unless you can actually sacrifice your low level pokemon to raise your own team gyms prestige
8:29 AM
I know a guy who's not picking a team, and is playing a true neutral player. He's not playing gyms at all
So ...
He's playing the game just to catch Pokémon, not battle them
@JamesENL And this is totally fine if he like it
It is great to have differences in the way we perceive thing. I just said that - for me- the game doesn't seem to have much to do.

so... I was skipping thru the SharePoint image folder to see if I can use one of the OOB images for a refresh button on an app I am working on instead of having to find a custom one....
And I found this background instead.

Is slenderman trying to send me a message thru SharePoint?
maybe instead of 8 random pages I will find 8 scrolls on undocumented SharePoint features?

Here is the answer I made : meta.stackoverflow.com/a/327656/1372424
I'm still getting downvotes even after I updated the post
Should I remove it and post a new answer with a slightly different image ?
@Subin -9/ +7 where you picked up 6 downvotes in the early stages. I wouldn't try to game the system as that might also backfire.
@rene So don't delete and let it keep that way ?
I wouldn't delete and accept that the ad wouldn't be used in the rotation
@rene How about posting another ad with different image. Mod suggest that there shouldn't be 2 ads with 6+ votes of same project
You better not go against GraceNote, they are not a mod, they are an Community Manager and SE employee. They run the place. Doing anything that annoys them might not turn out well
6:30 PM
@rene Yeah, you're right. Ok, I'll wait for next year :)
@rene Thanks for your opinion
you're welcome
6:53 PM
@rene That makes it sound like we retaliate against petty annoyances :P
Nonpingable @JasonC is trying to navigate the scope of Programmers. Let's see if a 20K SO user can manage that...
Having said that, I wouldn't bother replacing an ad in an existing image... but if you have tweaks you want to make and try again, there's little harm in that. Worst case, you still don't get the required # of votes, which means the community has really spoken at that point. I'm 99% sure (and they may correct me) that @GraceNote's point in that comment is meant to address ads with +ve scores that are shown on the site, not ads that got 6 upvotes, but are still excluded from rotation.
cc @rene @Subin ^^
@AdamLear Yes - I suppose I should've said "6+ score"
And yeah, basically all that that Adam said there.

"moving it"?
7:17 PM
I copied it from Firefox, using the netscape format and then used it in a curl script. When I did run that script, I got an empty acct cookie (with t=&s=) and my session in firefox was killed as well. So I lost control over it. Maybe because I miss calculated the expiration time
I'm aware this is probably not a supported use case ;)
But I wondered if there is more you keep track off to guarantee the cookie is not stolen
I accept Yes, we do more ;)
well, we do have a few things :P
