> We have offices in New York, London and Denver, so if you’re in (or want to relocate to) one of those cities you can, and our offices are awesome.
 
user315433
If you're in, you can [do something unspecified]. Being "in" is important.

Coffee went into public beta two years ago, back when having such a site seemed like a good idea to some.

@Shog9 is that by id or by name?
 
Both
 
chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/… no doubt thanks entirely to Joel's post on MSO. What would we do without him?
Next time maybe he can wait a few days like a sane person.
 
user202362
err ... it can't be both unless people who change names often don't get pinged much - people like M.A.R. & normalhuman change names every 6 months
 
user202362
so far as I am aware of, id doesn't change whenever you change your displayed name
 
user315433
Any truth to the rumor that a screenshot of Joel's post will be a part of the new top bar?

3:36 AM
Only for Jason.
 
@Shog9 Hey, so I'm reconsidering my position on applying for a job at SE (once my freelance clears up again), because it would just be so perfectly convenient. In your honest opinion, do you feel Joel's post caused any political-related tension in the workplace? I seriously don't want to be an outcast for leaning a little to the right.
Lol oh god.
 
@JasonC political tension, not much.
 
removed distraction
reinstated non-distraction
Cool
 
"wake up from a nap on a Saturday to a shit storm tension", yeah
 
@bluefeet What do you think?
Ha, well, that's the fun kind of tension.

One SE employee I could reliably recognize as conservative was Ben Collins... left a long time ago. Probably had reasons unrelated to politics, though.
 
PS:
In case anybody was afraid to ask...
 
4:08 AM
@JasonC ok, done with supper, here's the longer answer:
There are, as you might have gathered, a lot of folks working here who don't much care for trump. Arguably that's what led to the post; there's a certain expectation internally that if something big's going down, someone should say something.
But as far as tension resulting from the post, I'd say the biggest internal conflict was simply, "ok, what do we do next?"
(Which I'm sure you already gathered if you read more than one of our follow-up posts)

But consider millions of women around the world march in record-breaking protest against Donald Trump dwarfing inauguration crowd. What has been done was too little, what will be done is too late
 
user202362
actually, I am not really worrying about trump as US president anymore, like every other US presidents, he only chooses to bully the little guys
 
user202362
no need to worry about WW III 4 now
 
@Shog9 Yeah... I don't know. I guess I just feel like politics have no place in the workplace, period. I mean, I disagree with the premise that what was going down was "big". I just don't want to be surrounded by people whining about whatever all the time. If I want that I can go to the local coffee shop, or watch youtube.com/watch?v=1-JdsBXkHs8.
It's this American react-first, ask-questions-later thing, it just gets me.
And if I'm sitting down in the break room and 6 people are talking about how much they hate Trump or whatever, what do I do? Do I participate and disagree? Or do I cut myself out of the conversation and sit there in silence, not getting to chit-chat with coworkers during a break? Or do I go somewhere else? That's the tension I'd want to avoid.
 
@JasonC yeah, well, I work several thousand miles away from the break room you're referring to, so I can't really say whether that's likely or not.
I do know they got a pretty nice coffee machine.
so... There's your trade-off.
 
4:19 AM
Lol, the funny part is, now I'm seriously like "Oh... realllly.... hmmm"
 
Personally, I think that sort of thing is unavoidable. You just gotta set your own limits for how engaged you're gonna get in those conversations.
I mean, I had a co-worker once who'd go off on a rant about Clinton at the drop of a hat. And y'know, we could talk about that. But when he got into the stuff he heard on Art Bell the night before... That's when I'd roll my eyes and just move on to something else.
 
user202362
@JasonC Java people are meek </trollololo>
 
user202362
we C++ people are much tougher
 
4:34 AM
@Telkitty I am a c++ person. That's why I avoid taking about it on the internet, lol.
comp.lang.c++ trauma left permanent scars.
@Shog9 Yeah. That's good advice.
Anyways thanks for your insight on that.
 
5:17 AM
@JasonC I thought anyone who used usenet probably had some deep scars ;p
Ironically I missed most of that, probably cause of the odd way singapore got internet

@Andy just curious, why didn't you use the chance to upload something new when Gravatar broke? ;)
 
I did. I uploaded my old image, because the new pink one looks stupid.
That and I've come to identify as a green blob of shapes
 
@Andy heh, that's what I meant... hard to remember "green blob of shapes". ;)
e.g. see @Bart - he's glasses.
@rene is a flower. etc. ;)
Quick glasses!
How you saw the ping so fast @Bart if you weren't in the room??
 
I'm glasses
 
I suppose I haven't really thought about what I want to be when I grow up into a real avatar.
 
@Andy oh my. Well, something green. And with shapes. hmm..
Found something for you!
 
7:48 PM
@Andy you'll figure it out. I used to be a blue shape
 
@Andy ^^
@Bart really?? When?
 
A long long time ago
 
I don't think I ever used identicon...
 
I'm not sure what that is. We'll call it a Hershey Kiss Pea, and not option A :)
 
Though my gravatar pic is really outdated now
@Andy fair enough, but glad you're considering a change! :D

The red-footed booby (Sula sula) is a large seabird of the booby family, Sulidae. As suggested by the name, adults always have red feet, but the colour of the plumage varies. They are powerful and agile fliers, but they are clumsy in takeoffs and landings. They are found widely in the tropics, and breed colonially in coastal regions, especially islands. == DescriptionEdit == The red-footed booby is the smallest member of the booby and gannet family at about 70 cm (28 in) in length and with a wingspan of up to 1 m (3.3 ft). The average weight of 490 adults from Christmas Island was 837 g (1.845...

@JonEricson Oh man. @bluefeet it is so on.

@Bart so before 2012... maybe in 1992?
@rene good! Now the party can begin! :P
@Bart don't you mean a Den? ;)
 
If that is what you kids call it these days, go ahead
 
@rene why is it called "Happy Hour"? What's happy about it?
 
And it won't have been 1992, but 2010 could have been. I think that's when I created my current account.

@Bart don't become innocent, you were there... :D
 
9:12 PM
Never on purpose
 
@Bart oh, you didn't use Gravatar before that?
@rene but sometimes people drink beer and are still sad
 
@ShadowWizard I think I had some default identicon before my current gravatar
 
@Bart yeah yeah, keep telling that to yourself...
 
@ShadowWizard yeah, needs more beer then
 
@rene oh, then you get drunk... and drunk people can't be sad. :D

@rene I just looked at it and cleaned it up a little more - the obsolescent and too chatty (silly) comments. Flag more comments if you think they're out of place.

@AaronHall OK, thanks and I agree on not being to aggressive on meta.
