@curious I once took a law class, you could bring your own computer with the syllabus on it. The teacher was like: I don't care for you to memorize this shit, no-one does. We all search
 
6:52 AM
@curious so he should be potty trained by now! :D
@KevinB about same for me, good old Envelope days...

@Mithical yeah, don't think there's really any change from 2019
Sadly, the only comparison I can find is Facebook, it's just so big that new alternatives never really catch and grow.
:9205382 huh, finally you clean your own mess.
(that was reply to the recent deleted message ^)
 
You can thank @Spevacus for finding and fixing the bug :-)
 
@RyanM huh! @Spe thanks, what really happened there? Something changed on SE side and broke the code?
Also...
in Shadow's Den, 13 secs ago, by KennyBOT
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar thanks Spevacus for the help.
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar Nope, was a bug introduced when an SD developer was fixing a different issue.
 
@RyanM ohh. So much like SE. ;-)

Sure :)
 
@JNat your avatar! Has it been hijacked by angry spammers?! ;-)
 
12:20 PM

network flair is slow to be created today
 
@JNat good! :)
@Luuklag if you mean of the new CM, it was wrong user id, I fixed it.
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar oops, and thanks
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar Dang, I double checked that I though
 
Hmm need to fix in the other list as well ;)
 
12:28 PM
oh, got it, you fixed it to be the MSE flair
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar I did it
not the network flair
 
Yeah thats whats going on. Their ID was that of the network account
 
so it was right, it's just that there is no flair to display yet ;P
 
@JNat yeah, without 200 rep on any site, no network flair.
 
The flair is broken on my end for Rosie, Nicolas, and Cesar for some reason
 
@Mithical looks fine to me
 
12:29 PM

Q: Server error when attempting to load network flairs for some users

Sonic the Save Ukraine-hogIn the list of employees on the community team, the network flairs for some (but not all) employees aren't loading, and instead showing a broken image with alternate text. When I attempt to manually go to the network flair for those users (here's an example), I get a server error page. What's cau...

 
@LeonardoAlvesMachado still not fixed but still in our backlog, I believe it only breaks on some of our webservers so it'll work intermittently depending on which one you get — Kyle Pollard ♦ Jan 11 at 16:49
 
12:31 PM
So each flair might be served from different web server?
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar not sure
or that it only breaks part of the time on a certain server
so mithical needs to connect to a different webserver ;)

You gotta know the secret (triple?) handshake
 
1:46 PM
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar Yeah one of the developers was fixing a problem where the bot was continually hanging when trying to reconnect to chat/SE main when the site was down, so he added a cookie-only way for it to relog into chat. The problem was he just didn't restart up the ChatExchange client's worker thread to process stuff that was queued for deletion.
All the same, thanks for the thanks, have some...

@Spevacus brews a cup of green tea for @ShadowWizard
 
I'm now looking into tackling a problem where someone will propose a watch but a PR is already open to watch the same exact regular expression, causing some conflict. It's something Sonic and a few others have run into issues with.

While the future may be a mystery, you can design software to accommodate future changes. But how much future-proofing gets in the way of good design?

Future proofing in a world of inevitable onebox failure
 
Clairvoyance... learned the meaning of that word when playing Magic The Gathering, there is such magic card there. Don't really remember what it's doing, it was over 20 years ago, with a friend that passed away in the meanwhile, so never had chance to play it later. :(
Huh! Turns out it's a really good one.
Dang I now miss playing the game. Tried playing it online but it's just not really fun. lol
!!/play Magic The Gathering
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar No such command 'play'.

Anil's on the BoD, IIRC?
 
Huh! Kenny is hosted there, @rene hope this won't break the bot... ;(
 
3:45 PM
@Mithical Its what Joel did after SE
but that too
 
4:35 PM
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar I am not speculating, rather exclaimed lightly.
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar I am not new here, absolutely. ;)

@NotStandingwithGoGotaHome I know, but it's not special, getting many of these. :)
@NotStandingwithGoGotaHome I know! About half year. I think.
@rene ohh, OK! Now I'm calm. ;)

@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar or?
@NotStandingwithGoGotaHome look, it's nothing personal, but becoming and staying a certified Taverner requires a specific skill set and once you graduate from your rite of passage we maaay consider it
It has quite a few bullet points, not everyone is cut out fer it.
You gotta talk to Smokey like he's alive and understands you. You gotta be blamed for something random by Smokey, pick a fight with a figure of authority over comment deletion or bounty a controversial issue.
Every ten or so messages, you gotta cherry-pick some time when you think SE/SO was at its prime, and keep comparing things to then
Also a minimum of 5000 flags on SE sites you forgot existed may help your case.
Those parental sustainable productivity SEs or something
Also, the one crime punishable by immediate revocation of your certified Taverner badge is linking to a meta post with drama and infecting the Tavern with it
sigh 2014/12/5. Back then SE was perfect.
