@ShadowTheKidWizard that is weird. If you call 112 they ask what you need (police, ambulance, fire fighters) and they get dispatched right there and then.

@rene The weird thing in Switzerland is that technically that's how 112 works here as well, but they still always "advertise" the direct numbers (117 police, 118 fire, 144 medical)

@rene well that's Europe. Israel has terrible services to the ordinary citizen, that's just part of it.
Few years ago, three teenagers were kidnapped by terrorists. One of them managed to call the police (100) while in the car, and guess what happened?
OK, I'll tell. The policeman getting the call thought it's a joke and hang up.
This led to ongoing military operation, hundreds of victims, etc.
That's how stupid and useless our police is.

@tripleee kaboom
 
thanks
@ShadowTheKidWizard there's probably a lot of other domains we would whitelist then, there are several whitelists in findspam.py which might be useful to apply
only 3% FP rate and probably not many of them would be fixed with a whitelist so not sure it's worth the effort
also why exactly should Pastebin be excluded? it could very well contain bad content
 
@tripleee probably not :)
@tripleee spammers using pastebin?? That's new, but yeah, who knows...
 
probably not spammers so much, but trolls etc
 
12:45 PM
@Bart Are those for emergencies only or non-emergencies too? I know that over here firefighters/police also have non-emergency numbers you can call if 112 isn't necessary...
 
1:27 PM
@Tinkeringbell not here, lol. We do have some volunteer organizations with a shortcut number having three digits, and each municipality also has support number for things like noise late at night, pets stuck on trees etc.
But police can't be bothered with non-emergency.
 
@ShadowTheKidWizard Oh, that's pretty much the same here. They can't be bothered, they claim not to have enough people ... and so non-emergency stuff, and even actual crime, is allowed.
 
2:01 PM
@Tinkeringbell yeah, to handle cases like simple shoplifting they'll need to have lots of policemen, as it's hundreds of cases every day. So make sense they just don't do it in the first place. ;)

For a successful Agile and DevOps practice, organizations need to think beyond tooling. Engineering organizations need a strong community of practice culture that supports the collecting and distributing of knowledge, greater cross-organizational collaboration, and breaks down the silos that can happen in companies of all sizes.

Basically they are all emergency or non-emergency. You're supposed to call the direct numbers. But given that Switzerland is surrounded by the EU, they set up 112 as a number as well, because in a panic all us bloody foreigners are likely to call that instead. :D
There was a proposal some years ago to just use 112, but that was retracted before it even came to a vote.
 
Ah yeah, just blame foreigners ;)
 
If you need the police service for trains, you're supposed to call some 0800 number. I'm sure that works great :D
 
That's a good idea though. The Netherlands had something similar with the suicide hotline: It was advertised everywhere as 113, but it turned out the actual number was 0800-0113 XD
No votes here though, just extensive lobbying and since July last year 113 works too.
We also have '114, red een dier' XD
I think the train police here have their own number too.
Ah no my bad. You either just app/sms the national railway service to tell them you feel unsafe, or for emergencies you can use 112
I guess there's nothing in between :P
 
3:36 PM
@Bart so, what's up, stranger? You happen to work in the secretive VR area? ;)
 
Very secretive. Besides a recently opened public venue in Geneva.
So if you happen to be in the area, you can try it out XD
