@Jenayah I laugh every time people are baffled like that by the sound... Thanks! 😄
That was a fun night... Chunk of code that generates unique id based on time crashed because the long data type became negative. 5 major clients were down....
Good news are that it's not my code...
Bad news are that it's still my problem...
Pro tip: don't shift the Ticks of current date too much.
 
lol
That keeps Tick-ing ...
 
6:55 AM
@Jenayah There's a song in my playlist that has a sound exactly like the Discord ping in the middle and it gets me every time. (I can't even remember which song now, though.)
 
7:33 AM
Is the "delete" button showing up slightly out of place for anyone else or could it be a userscript?
 
Do you have a link I could try?
 
Uuuhhh is there any site where you can delvote but don't have a diamond?
But huh... I just tried on IPS and it's not doing it there, only SFF. Interesting...
 
Eh, now that you mention it.. nope :P
 
*refreshes* And now it's fixed. That was odd.
 
That describes half the site :)
 
7:51 AM
morning
 
\o
 
@Mithical cache. It's always cache.
 
So called space cache, normally 6 to 8 pixels. resolves itself in 6 to 8 refreshes
 
8:19 AM
Cache. Cache never changes...
(it sometimes gets invalidated I guess?)
 
Yeah, or items get evicted ...
 
8:51 AM
singly linked list @rene @Art @Mith @Sonic
 
poof
 
9:05 AM
@Magisch Morning!
 
Magisch Monday ...
 
Magic 8 Ball
@Mag so, what's up? You back to full work?
Is there sound of paws on linoleum today?
 
no
40% furlough
 
Heh, turban ban!! Parrot or dog nuked it? ;)
@Magisch ouch... but you work at office?
 
yes
 
9:12 AM
So that's a plus, I guess. Or isn't it?
 
eh
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance looking at it, no :D
wanders in with a bit of cloth that's obviously not from a turban...
 
Poof, thanks.
 
Having a "productive" day at work :D
 
9:27 AM
(PIP, when you need to chat AND watch music videos at once)
 
not nearly enough userscripts running there geek
 
@Mithical I keep em sparse, and this isn't my main system.
Its my tablet :D
 
I prefer RIP above PIP ...
 
actually I don't think I am running.... tampermonkey was synced, but not its settings D:
I'll need to look at transferring them over to this :D
 
9:43 AM
Just use a second monitor like a real pr0
 
@JohnDvorak oh uhhh
that's my tablet I bring to work :D
I have uhhhh
4 monitors on 2 PCs + a laptop for actual work
 
bring two :D
 
ehh
I wouldn't mind another display but not likely.
 
They stack pretty well.
 
weight :D
 
9:45 AM
really?
 
and I might as well get a porta-monitor
@JohnDvorak laptop (15 inch) my tablet (11 inch SP7) lunch...
and I do use my work laptop for some stuff
just not my primary SE account ":D
 
Oh... you meant that you'd have no more money to weigh you down.
 
lol
or that
but the laptop is a work one, so didn't cost me anything :D
 
@rene actually my big space/weight thing is bringing my lunch with me :D
 
9:51 AM
@rene Everything is mobile if you're strong enough.
s/mobile/portable
 
true that
 
When in doubt, more wheels.
 
More wheels won't help you when you're hauling the entire Earth
 
You just need a lever then.
 
I suppose a tractor beam will be easier to find
 
10:09 AM
@JohnDvorak Where are you proposing to move Earth to?
 
@Tinkeringbell somewhere warmer. Covid wouldn't survive getting thrown into the sun....
then we wouldn't need to wear masks!
 
Tweet it. Who knows one of the leading countries in the world might attempt that....
 
@JourneymanGeek We wouldn't need to wear masks if we could trust people to stay apart, and stay home when having symptoms. But we can't, so we have to trust the two layers of the most breathable material they have lying around sewn together are protecting us...
 
@rene America has a space force... Might happen!
 
10:14 AM
more or less
 
you are contagious for at least a week before showing symptoms. Staying at home when you have symptoms won't suffice.
 
@JohnDvorak 2 wasn't it? THat's kinda why its a pain
 
In fact, you are less contagious after showing symptoms.
@JourneymanGeek varies by case
 
@JohnDvorak That one is new... they haven't communicated that one over here.
 
huh... Where's that?
 
10:15 AM
Netherlands? I haven't heard that one before at least.
 
@Tinkeringbell that spreaders are asymptomatic is one of the big dangers
 
You stay home when you have symptoms (cold, sneezing) because those spread a lot of drops...
You stay apart in other cases, because you always spread drops.
 
Czechia has been wearing masks since day 1 and has had very few infections.
 
I mean, I'd love to be confident enough to trust them... like I said, though... " two layers of the most breathable material they have lying around sewn together" combined with bad use... I'm not saying they don't help, but I've seen too many stories/cases of bad usage to trust that they'll protect me from others.
That, and the fact that my mom is supposed to wear full protective gear when dealing with suspected Covid clients, instead of just putting a mask on them.
 
There definitely has been plenty of bad use (they do nothing when hanging around the neck!) but there are still enough people that wear them over the face that it does matter.
Medical workers are in greater danger because they spend a lot of time near the infected population - and because if they get infected, they'll spread it on everyone.
 
10:22 AM
@Tinkeringbell I guess its also about level of risk
If you could put everyone in MOPP4 gear we'd be in better shape
 
@JohnDvorak To be fair, I won't claim they won't matter... Do keep in mind I was replying with some sarcasm to a joke ;) But I still feel there's a core of truth in my reply: If distance means you stay out of reach of each others droplets and staying home when symptomatic means you won't get hit with sneezes that go beyond that distance... masks are just like airport security.
 
but we can't, and a surge in demand for protective gear is also a problem when the right folks are short
 
@JourneymanGeek from the neck exercise, you mean? :D
 
@Tinkeringbell assuming people stay far enough
@JohnDvorak I remember it being hot mostly
 
@JourneymanGeek Yeah, that was the point of my original message: We can't trust people to do that!
 
10:23 AM
the mask wasn't too bad other than mine not working too well
 
I'll just hope the lease car arrives before I ever have to take a train back to an office, and that work from home continues indefinitely ;)
 
@JourneymanGeek not working well?? How so? It's just a mask... Either it's torn, or it's fine. ;)
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance mine leaked when I went in and had to change it
 
Wait... what we talk about? lol
Thought about face masks
 
and they make you take it off when you train so you remember :D
being teargassed is "fun"
 
10:31 AM
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance are you editing the dupe list on that stackCovid question?
 
@rene dunno, it's 100% dupe.
Ideally, the other one should be closed as dupe of "How to propose a site"
 
just add the dupe Mark offered, it is in the comments
 
But for some reason it's closed as off topic.
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance this one?
it is not
 
@rene no, this one. It is about SE. Yet again... people close because something is crappy. :/
 
10:35 AM
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance reopened, closed as dupe? :D
 
Crap is still on topic, just deserves downvotes.
Until we have a close reason "This question is too [insert nice word here] for this site". ;)
 
fair
 
"wonderful.."
 
11:17 AM
That's racist
 
@JohnDvorak Only if questions can have a race.
 
12:02 PM
@Mast Sure, it's always a race to get attention and reach HNQ ;)
 
12:58 PM
Haha
 
1:23 PM
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance you need Scots close reasons. "Yer question's a pile o' pish, lad!"
2
 
1:41 PM
@ArtOfCode fine by me! :P
 
 
3 hours later…
4:57 PM
Gone :)
 
butbutbut, if we leave it there, the asker will need fewer questions to get themself q-banned on MSE!
 
I have a suspicion I'm sciencing... that deleted questions count harder towards a q-ban than just downvoted/closed ones ;)
 
keep me informed
 
Nah, I guess that wouldn't be allowed ;)
 
My life is complete. Travis J gave me compliment ...
I guess the best part would be if I serial downvote him for that comment ;)
 
5:49 PM
@rene Jeez rene that answer is too inspirational for your taste
 
Thanks. Let me find your profile to share my "gratitude"...
 
@rene Bring it on laddie
Cocks downvote shotgun
I will be so grateful my gratitude will be all over the place
and I didn't downvote your post
 
6:44 PM
@M.A.R. keep the gratitude to yourself. I'll take the shotgun.
@rene not nearly complete, maybe 30%. What about John? Tink? Shog?
:D
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance they will follow ...
 
@Tinkeringbell that's a fact actually... I think...
 
I don't know. Don't have time to science now... I'm making fake money! XD
 
Bitcoin?
Late to the party...
 
Hahaha no, Animal Crossing ;)
My brother let me loose on a forum where you can trade/buy/sell stuff... and it's just a liiittle addictive :P
 
6:50 PM
Lol
Which animals cross?
 
I have a rhino, an alligator, a kangaroo, a sheep, a bird, an eagle, a monkey, a rockhopper penguin, a horse, and a cow :P
 
Also, poor forum... Innocent people never seeing what's coming their way...
:P
 
Hahaha
It's a very nice forum... didn't feel like flagging anything yet, not even once!
 
@Tinkeringbell no cat? Dog?!
@Tinkeringbell sounds too boring ;) 💤
Let me loose there and flags will start flying...
 
Hahaha perhaps, yes :P
To be fair I have not been everywhere yet :P
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance Nope, there are cat and dog characters but I haven't been so lucky yet.
 
 
1 hour later…
8:00 PM
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance It's a really really bad forum... making me stay up past bedtime!
 
Election on Christianity underway. Three candidates are running.
 
I'd hate elections. Running for a week!
Glad I just got appointed everywhere when that was still an option.
 
@JohnDvorak Cardio is the secret to a happier, more productive life.
 
8:52 PM
@Tinkeringbell Too bad that's no longer possible on many sites, which have a high number of interested candidates
