Q: Posting question on electronics?

rbhatupToday I saw a drone hovering over my house and recording everything. I've seen many drones do this with my neighbors also. I read that one can build a device with off-the-shelf components that can hijack drones, similar to the icarus gadget. Where can I post a question that will help me build s...

A tweet that sort of proves its own point.
12:57 AM
@ArteS "Modify the StringCollection" Demands like that never sound very good, neither are well achieved. You should consider to reformulate your question radically! — πάντα ῥεῖ 51 secs ago
@rene Just to boot you ;-)
Happy Easter everyone!
1:21 AM
@JourneymanGeek I seriously dislike that @gen.Strash guy!
1:53 AM
@πάνταῥεῖ lol. Looking at what happened, and what he's saying....He'll need an attitude adjustment to hit 5k, let alone 50
@JourneymanGeek I've been recommending that guy to root themselves. I think he seriously needs that. (Well you know, it's a comment at your answer)
I can't tell if these two posts count as duplicates or not. And if they do, I can't tell which one of the two is a "better" post to link to. meta.stackexchange.com/q/213606/351462 meta.stackexchange.com/q/109063/351462
Not dupes.
One is for (one of the?) Apps. The other is for the mobile view
Fair enough. Wasn't entirely sure since I felt like the same answers applied to both
@JourneymanGeek The OT comment and all others were edited out regarding here
1:58 AM
I've been looking at their profile, and feel embarassed about that Scrum Blabber.

Y'all mind if I ask where I can ask a question?

Can suspension period decreased by talking to mods?
@QPaysTaxes no,just ask it
6:59 AM
@Fawad eh. Sometimes
@Fawad Depends what it's for. Once I asked a mod to suspend me from SO for a week because I had finals coming up and didn't want to get distracted, and when I said that finals were over a day early, they un-suspended me then. I don't think that counts, though.
Anyway, I'm looking at internships, including some opportunities in the UK. I'm fairly sure I can work there, but the wording of the UK government's website tool thing that tells you if you can work there is... not entirely applicable for my case, so I wanted to ask if dual EU/US citizens can work in the UK.
Where could I ask about that?
@Fawad If you dun goofed and there's a point and you're truely contrite maybe
7:22 AM
I was feeling bad for this person^
1 year suspension :(
one year suspension...
They might have earned it
Not easy to get one of them. And if they think there's a mistake, they ought to talk to the mods and CMs themselves

9:06 AM
@Fawad I've seen some 10 year suspensions handed out in the past
9:55 AM
@angussidney oh, those are .... special
erf. That should not have been edited.
@angussidney I call 10 year suspensions go away suspensions
10:36 AM
The longest suspension in SE is 27 years, IIRC.
And these are discussed too much
For things that are handed out extremely rarely
@M.A.R. how
@QPaysTaxes What do you mean "how"?
@M.A.R. What was the reason? If it's public :P
Oh, I think being a d@#$ is enough reason if you're persistent enough
10:42 AM
I really don't recall the PhysicsOverflow-related drama
Q: Extension to link official documentation

shantanuoIs there any firefox or crome extension that will link manual pages to stack overflow? For e.g. when I visit this page, I will like to see the stack overflow posts on the right side of the browser those link to that URL. https://docs.python.org/3/library/collections.abc.html Update: I am as...

'crome' is creepy

@M.A.R. 0_0
@M.A.R. must be special.
I think we requested a decade for our 'favourite' troll
I am special, yes

Meta is pretty boring today :(
<- this is what 1337 tr011 becomes after 3 days hiking/camping in the sub zero mountain environment
3 days of sleep deprivation & freezing cold + wet boots
1:11 PM
also, once crowned 'favourite troll', you will not get banned, you would only get banned because you are not yet favourite
1:32 PM
@Telkitty air quotes ;p
Guy wasn't even entertaining
or efficient, since he wanted to troll chat and actually spent time asking scrappy questions so he'd have a chat account...
which would then get nuked.
2:12 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ here is my kick back :D
@Telkitty why?
2:35 PM
anti virus strikes again... they 99.999% of the times cause more damage than good.
Q: No longer able to upload images

Phil3992I am having a problem across multiple PC's where I cannot upload images on stack overflow anymore. I few weeks ago I went to upload an image but it was to big. Now when I ever go to upload a new one the old image is still uploading and I cannot cancel it. This is affecting me across all the sta...

All anti viruses I tried to this day are pure crap.
None caught even a single virus.
I just run defender and back up my important stuff
Maybe those which cost like $1000000 worth a bit more, but I doubt it.
It's just a measure to take money from people, and spy on them with those crappy "toolbars" and extensions.
(which I consider viruses by themselves, or malware in the very least.)
@JourneymanGeek exactly
Norton is vile
as are most "data loss prevention" extensions.
... how do you know its norton?
@JourneymanGeek yup, worst I've ever seen. Avira was almost not bad.... not no good as well.
@JourneymanGeek I don't, that was just the first report. I edited my comment to say "or whatever fancy extension of some "anti virus" you installed" :)
but the screenshot proves beyond doubt it's the same case.
2:56 PM
Job -1 was mcafee I think

^You two :-P
There's a lot of code to move for this one - but it'll be moved to area51.meta.stackexchange.com as soon as time allows. — Nick Craver ♦ 3 hours ago
No more "discuss" in URL.
How long before English language gives in and accepts possessive it's?
@Gerry It hasn't already?
8:18 PM
And perhaps the Twitter/IM influence will redefine "it is" contraction as "its".
I didn't mean to rant about that... just noticed that Googling "reality destroys our dreams" brings up Google Play lyrics page that uses possessive it's consistently. Google Play has a little higher standards than random lyrics sites.
8:57 PM
i had to put my cat down this morning
there wasn't anything left to try and he took a turn for the worse last night
i think he was comfortable. he had a seizure, i let him recover, and calm down, then we gave him the drugs and he passed on purring in my lap.
almost 16 years old
i hope i gave him a good life
All's well that ends well
9:20 PM
@JasonC Aww, that's quite high age for a cat. You must have treated it good.
@JasonC I'm sure you did. Sorry to hear.... stay strong!
@ShadowWizard brews coffee for @ShadowWizard
!!/coffee for @Jason
Hey why Smokey doesn't reply to me before I ask, like he's doing with @Mithrandir? Not fair. :(
!!/blame @Mith
@ShadowWizard It's Jason C's fault.
@JourneymanGeek and job -3?
9:37 PM
@ShadowWizard thanks :)
it's a very weird feeling. i've had him since my first year in college, and he's been the only absolute constant in my life for a really long time. it'll take some getting used to.
my other cat's been unusually sweet today, i like to imagine that she knows on some level
9:55 PM
@JasonC yeah, she probably knows...
So you're going to look for a new cat?
1 hour later…
10:57 PM
@ShadowWizard no, i don't look for cats. if another one is supposed to be in my life, they'll find me.
@JasonC condolences.
@ShadowWizard I picked the av. Pay was shit, budgets shoestring but I has leeway there
11:55 PM
@rene I did 3 days hiking in the snowy mountains - couldn't sleep well for 3 nights because combination of 1) the difference between mattress & soft cotton quilt on a queen size bed in a quiet en-suite bedroom and sleep mat, sleep bag in a tent. 2) freezing cold. 3) on the 3rd night, I finally arranged my bedding to be warm enough, my tent collapsed because of strong wind around 3am-4am in the morning.
