[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Bad NS for domain in body, blacklisted website in body: Why do browsers not render pictures in native pixel density on by Sic jcj on apple.SE
 
2:37 AM
@Ano We changed it on Jan. 17 for reasons I don't know/recall.
@Ano We changed to to 100 on Patents, 200 on Photo, 15 on Super User and 2 on The Workplace.
@JourneymanGeek My guess is that we use CC BY-SA, which is the same licence as Wikipedia. It's a bit hard to grasp making a profit when the company doesn't own the bulk of the content on the site. It's not the normal arrangement.
 
Hey @JonEricson :D Did you have a good weekend?
 
@JonEricson eh, maybe, but its hardly a secret.
 
Ano
2:53 AM
@JonEricson Are there citations on the respective per-site metas for the first two?
 
@Ano No idea. My guess is there was some problem with a post automatically going CW back with that happened.
 
Ano
@JonEricson How about citations for raising the CW triggers? Those work too, as I added a paragraph explaining that this was the old CW threshold so the citations make sense.
 
@Catija Technically, I'm still having it. ;-)
 
@JonEricson ... In the Tavern? Nah, you must have gotten bored ;)
 
Waiting for the kids bedtime so that I can watch a movie in peace.

[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Bad NS for domain in answer, username similar to website in answer: If someone asks to borrow your phone to make a call, what could they do? by Prexblog on security.SE
 
Ah, what are you planning to watch?
 
@Ano The only place I can remember talking about it besides when we tested it on The Workplace is the blog.
@Catija Not sure. I started High-Rise last night, but I wasn't in the right mood. Maybe something more actiony?
 
I've watched the opening fight scene in Guardians of the Galaxy II more times than I've watched the entire film :D
 
;p
I have that on my list. but ugh.
I kinda need to sort out the current round of interviews first
 
It's really good. I just really love the opening fight scene with Baby Groot :D
 
3:10 AM
(which is a good thing, other than that I'm walking into an interview so secret... I DO NOT KNOW WHO THE EMPLOYER IS)
or where the job is.
or...
 
So, if we don't see you this evening, we should call the authorities?
 
I wouldn't even do it, but the place that contacted me, eh, they pay on time, ok, and typically don't fuss much
lol
its just odd
but ugh, this means 6 months of employment if it works out.
and I can't really say that's a bad thing. Assuming I'm even allowed to add it to my resume ;p
 
Is this the one that requires a clearance?
 
"6 months at <redacted> working for <consulting firm> through <staffing firm>
ya
lol
I think there's a bit more detail on TL?
 
Hmmm...
 
3:14 AM
I can guess a bit - but that gets even stranger
 
I'll be interested to hear about it later.
 
assuming Its something I can talk about ;p
 
Yeah... that's usually not how it works.
 
(though it would be hilarious to have a job so secret... you have no idea who you actually work for)
 
I don't know about that, but I'm sure that there are people with jobs that don't allow them to tell their families who they work for.
 
3:25 AM
Buggy morning...
 
user315433
My movie to (re-)watch tonight is Drugstore Cowboy (while we are on the subject)
 
Submitted my nomination for Cooking.
 
user315433
Mostly for a random reason: it's Matt Dillon's birthday.
 
@Catija yay
 
user315433
The election is not overflowing with candidates.
 
3:28 AM
@FTP its kinda quiet, yes
 
Cooking doesn't have a lot of meta activity... it's an old site.
 
(I checked my candidate score for fun - its ...5)
on SU it was 50, the newest mod was at 49... was missing the badge for... voting in an election I think
 
Mine would go up one if I'd put a bounty on something :P
 
user315433
Candidate score is out of 40 points.
 
pretty sure it was 50?
anyway I had all the score
 
3:33 AM
Nah. 20 for rep and 20 for badges.
> candidate score 28/40
 
ah I did 40 out of 40 then ;p
 
Some users on SO probably didn't realize that there are ads on SO because they already have "reduced ads" privilege
 
Or they just use an adblocker...
 
blame myself

@SensibleAlexander reduced ads privilege does not remove all ads, sidebar ads are there all the time.
 
user315433
@Feeds NumPy 1.8.0 is old anyway, but the mention is appreciated.
 
@FTP and least in theory either ads for SE careers and other ads. The fact that people are mildly freaking out... ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek they found you
 
@JohnDvorak naw, I just wander around fixing PCs

I can factor primes in O(1) time, if it's given that the number is a prime.
 
5:52 AM
most of the ads I'm seeing are for SO jobs tho... ;p

I want that to actually happen, just for the sheer absurdity of it

5:54 AM
No mention of Google products.
 
I mean, It sounds like it could happen. It ... just ... shouldn't.
 
also, one answer was edited to

Unrelated: Desmond Dekker & The Aces - "Israelites", an oldie brought back by Drugstore Cowboy.
 
user315433
Doubly unrelated: I didn't expect that being a (potential) mentor in GSoC will bring this much email to my account.

Fun fact: the mass of the International Space Station (without fuel) is approximately 2.5 times the average weight of a blue whale.
 
user202362
average blue whale I assume
 
user202362
is it average or medium?
 
user202362
and how much food did the blue whale just had?
 
8:57 AM
How much whale would a whale wail do if a whale wail while wailing... kicked from the room
 
The formula I used is: 990000 lb / 200 sh tn
 
user202362
what if a blue whale accidentally swallowed me?
 
wait for 3 days
 
user202362
9:17 AM
and?
 
if you survived, you'd be back on the land, otherwise....
 
user202362
9:29 AM
I would be still in the ocean?
 
consider it a free ride...
 
@SensibleAlexander Little problem. The original version of that story never actually uses the word whale. The closest translation would be "giant fish"
 
yeah, either that story or that other story...
 
user202362
so if mermaids ate too much buffets and had too much sun tan, they would look like seals ... especially the hairy ones
 
@TelautonomousKitty you would likely drown. Maybe take the whale with you

12:34 PM
Looks like an issue with the CDN of gravatar in your region then
 
I think SE team is hungry for vulns. The security issue report delegated by shog on one ping, fixed and went live in the same day and also they ack'ed me. Tested, found a missing fix and reported as reply to the mail it on next day and fixed that one on the same day
 
could be!
.... or my ISP doing some routing shit again
 
unlike facebook. Facebook is really a piece of sh*t when reporting securty stuff
 
@OptimusPrime much more focused team I suspect
facebook is too big to move quickly
hm
@rene looks like it times out almost at the end of the traceroute, and there's no CDN
 
No. They're responding in just one day. But like dupe hammer, they have a big "intended behaviour" hammer and they're using it everywhere
 
12:38 PM
if its intended behaviour....
 
CVE-2017-????? A chicken sighted on Stack Exchange
 
shouldn't that be the right thing to do?
 
Facebook provides test accounts and a registered user can create any number of test account said that it can't interact with real account and also it can't be converted to real account.
I am able to create a real account from it and interact with other accounts. Reported it and they responded "actually this is an intended behaviour. We advice our testers not to use it in that way"
Another one is I am able to claim any email account by skipping verification. They said it is intended behaviour
 
hm
@rene looks like its back up ._.
 
@OptimusPrime probably a clue that they are aliens.
At this point, no developer from this world would expect people to act ethically online.
 
1:23 PM
@JourneymanGeek MWAHA you will never figure out my secret?
 
NOW I CAN!
 
That question mark is so meaningful
@JourneymanGeek NOOooOo00OO

@JourneymanGeek after all the scandals back in 2015, I don't really trust them anymore and actively try to avoid them.
 
@Derpy Oh I agree

@Derpy tis sad, I used to love sourceforge a decade ago
 
@TylerH I also used to think that in the year 2018 we would have flying hover-boards and secure computers. Still haven't got the board and IT security seems to be an utopia...
 
more like SourceForget
 
or ForgedSource

anyway, not related.
Seems Qubes OS cannot be installed with secure boot bios option active.
weird - even Linux Mint does not require disabling secure boot.
 
4:06 PM
I hear they just don't support it yet
or UEFI
 
4:38 PM
I assumed that the problem was just that the signatures aren't recognized
oh, well...
... Nope, seems I was at least partially right . Unless obviously you didn't mean the same by saying "not supported"
 
5:20 PM
oh, I guess they have made progress on Qubes in the last 2 years
 
I was thinking of this issue github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/794
 
 
1 hour later…
@Ano nope, I've commented so much there, I almost answered it. I'm not going to give the impression that I shutdown a discussion.
 
Ano
@rene Okay. For the record only: I didn't really notice your comments. I RC flagged it first, and waited until that flag was marked helpful; by the time I posted the above request my comment got 6 upvotes.
 
fair enough
 
Ano
I decided to do that for many of my future requests (wait until the flag is marked helpful, except blatant dupes that should be closed earlier), considering that there were a few cases (where I hadn't bothered to post a request here) where my RC flag was declined.

Is that what that is?
 
user315433
"It is what it is" is true for every value of "it".
 
I didn't use the value "it".
 
10:28 PM
And yet he wrote
Oh, he meant the person who didn't write
Writing isn't hard. Just mash some keys on the keyboard, look at what you've done, and if it isn't right, retry
 
11:01 PM
@rene ehh. On one hand, poor op. On the other hand (small) rep hit I can avoid by waiting a month or so....
 
@JourneymanGeek How'd it go?
I'm glad I didn't have to call the cops to find you.
 
@Catija imo, poorly. The interviewer felt I was overqualified and spent significant amounts of time trying to acertain if I would quit
 
@JourneymanGeek :/ that seems like a really crappy position the head hunter put you in...
 
Silly thing is it's essentially the same sorts work I've been doing for years and want to get out of....
But I ain't that picky
 
Yeah, six months gives you time to find something better.
