@rene it's more like a chorus of "I want [my sister's name here] to bath me today, please!1!!" every time, ever since they were able to talk.... but I admit it's very comfortable so I never said "no". :D
@Tinkeringbell I did! :P
@Luuklag you prefer the Hebrew @Mith and me sometimes write? ;)
@Rosie hehe, thanks! You have kids?
@Luuklag she did before, and got warm beer welcomes. :D

@Rosie hello! Nice to meet you. :)
@Luuklag LOL... how come? Well, my sister is 12 years older than me, and kind of raised me when I was a kid myself. (Father lived outside the country, mother worked extra hours to pay bills... so it was sister and grandparents, mainly.)
status-end-of-ping-backlog
 
7:08 AM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Ha!
 
7:32 AM
@rene would you trust your sister with such a thing? :D
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating איזה עצלן
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating even if I had a sister: no.
 
7:47 AM
@Mithical נראה אותך when you'll have kids..... :P
@rene hehe, you're hard to give trust...
Hmm... @rene will you trust me to bath your kids? :D
 
Feb 24 at 14:55, by Mithical
Cats are kids, right?
 
@Mithical Have you ever tried to bathe a cat? 😉
 
@Mithical you tried to bath them?
ohhh lol
I really should read some more before replying. :D
 
8:09 AM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating haha
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating warm beers, we shouldn't offer that to anyone.
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Well I doubt my sister will keep all 3 afloat at the same time xD. Mine is 5 years younger then me, and I doubt she'll ever have kids.
I bathed guinee pigs once
 
8:50 AM
@Luuklag so it's a "Yes"? ;)
@Luuklag depends how it got warm.... @Rob should know.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating By all means, go ahead ;)
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Do I wan't to know?
 
@Luuklag hehe, lol... but I never bath them together, it's one in a time. Suggested a while ago to my son to bath together with his sister (as a joke, they're now too old for this anyway) and he was horrified. :P
Actually, for a while now I don't really do anything with neither of the older kids, they bath by themselves, I just keep watch or being in standby in case they need something.
@Luuklag you.... what?! LOL
@Luuklag אין בעיה!
@Luuklag depends what you like ;)
 
9:06 AM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Yeah ours are young enough to go in one go
 
@Luuklag all three? Well, guess until one is 8 or so, it's totally fine.
I do hope none of them pee while in the bath? ;)
Anyway, coworker is testing my self control today:
So far I ate only two pieces, one small and one... not small... and it's tempting to take more.
 
9:30 AM
I know it's chocolate, but that picture isn't flattering at all.
 
I thought it was beef at first.
 
It could've been an archaeological find too :P
 
I didn't want to insult anyone so I refrained from commenting ...
 
9:50 AM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating yup
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating That's why we start with the oldest, wash her hair, and then the other two can join.
Isn't it just a brownie
 
Yes but we were insulting it :P
 
Always so welcoming this Tavern ;)
 
10:48 AM
@Luuklag Hey, that's the hospitality business for you: If the food is bad, you get poor reviews :P
 
Anyone knows a good way to Poll in MS teams btw?
 
@Luuklag If it's a yes/no one, you could (ab)use 'goedkeuringen'
 
Nope, their MC questions
 
Forms?
 
Yeah I have to present something, in a meeting with a lot of random people.
So I was first thinking of using mentimeter, but they only offer 2 free questions, otherwise you need a subscription.
 
11:00 AM
Ah. That sucks, I've had a few with mentimeter and it worked quite nicely indeed.
 
Yeah, but im not going to enter into a montly plan for just one presentation
 
Understandable :)
@Luuklag ahaslides.com/nl/blog/free-alternative-to-mentimeter < This one pops up a lot of you search for free mentimeter alternatives ;)
It does have a limit of 7 participants though so it's not really suitable for 'lot of random people' :/
We used it once... in a small meeting :)
 
maybe ill just look for something that fits in teams chat
 
I don't know about chat... I do know there's Forms, and that it allows for polls in a channel post.
 
11:20 AM
@Tinkeringbell Won't work because im an "external" presenter
mmm Polly looks promissing
polly.ai
 
Polly wants a cracker!
2
 
It's a parrot, what could go wrong ;)
 
Rob
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating from floating in the bath water.
 
11:42 AM
@Luuklag but if those two pee... you need to wash the oldest from the beginning... No?
@Luuklag yes, baked by the coworker daughter
@Rob Before, or after?
 
Rob
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Looks like take-out from @Sha's favorite restaurant.
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating During.
 
@Tinkeringbell here you go ...
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Well they usually sit up straight, so just rinse of quickly with the showerhead will be fine xD
 
@Rob crossed my mind after posting. Gives new ideas, based on the good taste. ;)
@Rob so it's mixed.
@Luuklag lol! Wait, they don't sit inside some water? When I bathed the kids, they were sitting inside water, 20-30 cm deep or so. So if there was pee inside the water, just quick rinse wouldn't be enough, as the kid kept sitting in it...
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Yeah when I notice they pee, its time to get out. So quickly have them stand up and rinse them. Not let them continue to play for another 10 mins ;)
 
11:59 AM
@Luuklag ohh.. I see. Well, my son always did it in the beginning, letting it all out.
At least with time he learned to aim well, and stopped on his own, few months ago.
 
@rene Those kinds of crackers are fine with me :D
 
I knew it!
 
12:44 PM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating yes, thanks! sorry I missed it yesterday, it was crazy
 
1:03 PM
@g3rv4 all good! How you found it now? ;)
I also recall sometimes "Hey... there was a ping I didn't reply to..." days later.
 
I was going through my pings because yesterday I knew I wasn't paying too much attention, so I wrote a TODO item "check pings"
if it weren't for Todoist, sometimes I would risk forgetting breathing
4
 
hahaha
 
/me peeks at the sandbox, and smacks @Ollie with a rolled up newspaper ._.
@Luuklag can't you use their equivilent of google forms?
 
@JourneymanGeek No, because that can't be used by anonymous users I believe
 
1:19 PM
ah
 
Rob
@g3rv4 @Sha's ToDo List: "Check pongs"
 
1:38 PM
@jnat does a cross site plagiarism spammer also count? stackexchange.com/users/20734953/ali-hassan?tab=accounts
 
oh him
 
Oh name is male
 
'oh, that one' . There, fits all the occasions.
 
1:52 PM
:P
I just love to troll @Journeyman whenever I can, without getting a bite.... ;)
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating that lady's first name is Hala, and her last name is loooooong
anyway
@Luuklag I think that's mostly handlable by the communities
 
@g3rv4 I hear that, I would be lost without Todoist. I don't forget things at work but if I don't throw in things like text so and so on their birthday, or clean out personal file cabinet those things never happen. :O
 
@JourneymanGeek Well its repeated behaviour. Here on MSE, as well as on SO. A really old post no-one spotted. I ran the first sentence through google and got a hit.
 
Flagging appropriately's probably good enough
Probably someone unfamiliar enough with the network to think that's cheap rep :D
 
@Rosie heh... even as an avid Todoist user, I never text people for their bdays or clean file cabinets, so don't give all the credit to Todoist :)
 
1:57 PM
LOL
 
- reminder to self, set reminders to self
 
I feel an incoming SO blog post about the benefits of todoist ;)
 
Ha ha
 
heh, I'm not too far from that... I have a task at the beginning of the day that's "check Todoist"
 
@Rosie hmm.... now I'm curious... Googling Todoist
 
1:58 PM
Might be potentially better than some of the stuff that's been there
 
I... hope... ... ... ... not
 
set reminder to self, to remind self what self is trying to remember
 
Rob
@Tinkeringbell Would religion even permit them to have a male doctor to do those examinations ....
 
looks like @Rosie has had absolutely no trouble getting used to meta
 
1:59 PM
@Rosie Sounds like my brain
But then I need to find a place to start doing things that I'm ought to do...
 
@Rosie oh, so it's personal usage only?
 
Mine's like that too, but I sometimes feel like I can't find 10 minutes at a stretch to do anything :D
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating todoist.se
 
@rene what an appropriate toplevel domain
 
> todoist.se’s server IP address could not be found.
:(
 
2:00 PM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating do you want people knowing "Buy the cheese" is in your list?
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating blame the Swedes
 
it's a task management tool. I've used a number of them professionally and personally over the years. IMO Todoist is the best one if you are looking for a free solution primarily for personally stuff. I think Asana has a better interface but it's $$$ and only makes sense to use if that's what your company subscribes to.
 
@JourneymanGeek sure! I never had problem sharing my personal life. :)
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating We know
 
@Rosie interesting, I just use Notes for shopping list, and some Notes for passwords, etc.
 
2:01 PM
:D
 
they are a small shop also building a Slack alternative that I'd love to try out
and bootstrapped
 
@g3rv4 if it gets any traction in my circles, that's 5 chat systems I don't use under duress
(work uses whatsapp, cause clearly I have done terrible things in my life and need to suffer...)
 
Can't chat enough
 
ouch! and here I am, complaining about Slack
 
@JourneymanGeek Whats wrong with just regular email...
 
2:04 PM
problem with chat systems is that you need buy in
@Luuklag Jira fills mine to a point where I dread opening it
 
2 slacks, both SE diaspora communities, discord - kinda off site side rooms, matrix which I prefer which my SU folks use...
@g3rv4 when i was still doing helpdesk, I just set a filter ;D
 
Notes are great. I use 1password for passwords and really like that I think it is a one time $50 USD purchase though.
 
@g3rv4 they must have an unsubscribe button ;)
Or use a rule to direct them all to trash
 
@JourneymanGeek I did for a while... but then I wasn't replying to messages sent on Jira, and you know... that's my job
 
@Rosie I use the browser built in system for that.
I'm a wee bit of a vivaldi fan
 
2:05 PM
Nice.
 
@g3rv4 <--- is still of the opinion that Bonfire (aka here) could have been much bigger if SE had put a bit more effort into it
 
@g3rv4 you can check them on jira itself no? :D
 
Use Trello and then take some time-off to deal with the cards: trello.com/b/0zgQjktX/blog-post-queue-for-stack-overflow-topics
 
@Mithical me too, me too
 
@Mithical it does some things better than anything else and stays out of the way
but its one of those many things the company built, and seems not to understand :(
 
2:06 PM
@rene I use Trello for one project, that thing also doesn't stop emailing me
 
Yes, awesome isn't it ?
 
@JourneymanGeek yeah, technically I can. Should probably try that out... I try to avoid opening Jira unless it's strictly necessary, but I think it could solve my mail problems
 
lol
@g3rv4 on the bright side
 
Jira sends email for any update, yeah...
 
our Jira server once went down cause it was overheating
so it could be worse
 
Rob
2:08 PM
Todoist:
 
the full story is hilarious but not one for here, or for when I'm still in this job :D
 
My Jira says: Your license has expired
 
@JourneymanGeek hahaha ours probably did also but we didn't notice because it's on the cloud
 
@g3rv4 tbh, I've also sorta helped admin one and...
 
@JourneymanGeek well that doesn't sound all to bad. In our building we once had a software company. They had 3 people here in NL, and an office in Nepal with a few dozen people. So they could do everything for cheap. One night their server caught on fire in our building, so the people in Nepal working remote were out of luck for a few days
 
2:09 PM
I actually don't think letting someone else run it is a bad idea
 
yup, it's just way slower than on prem
 
@Luuklag We had that happen too
 
but other than that, yeah... I don't be the one maintaining it
 
@g3rv4 Our VPN endpoints are in other countries
 
@Luuklag ouch
 
2:10 PM
and I'm pretty sure that we get something like dialup speeds based on our git speeds
 
wow
 
@Luuklag you say out of luck, I say sudden unplanned holiday
 
I love how our Jira items got improved so they slow me down.
 
@JourneymanGeek I don't think labour laws in Nepal are that progressive ;)
@JourneymanGeek thinking of speeds, my systems is syncing a file already for more then 1 hour, its just 300mb...
Time to call IT I guess.
But first close the browser xD
 
my internet is back up
ooh
 
2:40 PM
Is there a minimum number of votes someone needs to have cast to become visible on /users?tab=Voters&filter=week ? Both week and month are empty on IPS, while I'm sure there's been voting activity...
 
@Tinkeringbell not that I know of, probably just cache. (server side)
 
looking for available CM/dev to bother
@g3r do you have a "kick cache" button on sites in Users various tabs?
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Already found it: meta.stackexchange.com/a/90416/369802
No need to bother anyone, my search terms were just wrong ;)
 
2:58 PM
Well I don't particularly like it but... yeah :P
 
 
2 hours later…
4:58 PM
@JourneymanGeek Ow. Sorry ;)
Do canines read newspapers?
 
define read
 
Chew?

SO Perfect User Catch 22 rule:
You should not post question you can find a solution on your own to SO, but if you can't find a solution to your question other won't either.

unless Skett has some free time.
How can I lure Skett to SharePoint?
Maybe a challenge post on meta.se could work
"I know you are reading this Skett. You think you are the best, but I bet you can't answer this"..... A way to set me up for a miserable defeat probably, but at least I would have a reply....
 
@SPArcheon eh, i mean, that's not exactly true
self answers, as much as a hate them, exist
 
6:00 PM
Who is Skett?
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Jouhn Skett. Highest rep user on our sister site, Overflow Stack.
 
@terdon oh. Sounds like a nice persun.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating only on meta.SE

Bleeegh. Taxes suck. Been trying to get a turn all evening and can't even get into the website :(
 
Was planning on doing mine this weekend. Not looking forward to it.
 
I usually don't mind, except that every single year it's the same old song: They open the portal on March 1st, and by the time they get it working properly it's April. (and if you do your taxes before April, you get your returns by July, otherwise later).
