@InfiniteRecursion you already said that
@InfiniteRecursion that was just a little bump. You derailed the train.

That includes pinging me right now. I am in the room with you talking.

@Unihedron The gif lives on!
@Bart who?
they were pinging me again and again...because they couldn't find the special Bart, Haney saved us
11:34 AM
@cVplZ nobody
Yay #inf! :D
@Mooseman you love it, don't you? :)
@InfiniteRecursion I had a lovely round-trip for a meeting, leaving at 4am and getting back at 11pm ... fun timeszzzz...
@Mooseman 9/10
@InfiniteRecursion I guess you can now understand the elevenfold ping from you that once managed to clog up my inbox
@InfiniteRecursion So random-appearing, yet truly precise. :D
11:36 AM
@JanDvorak I didn't ping you eleven times, I pinged 2 times
Oct 19 at 15:38, by Jan Dvorak
@InfiniteRecursion You, specifically, have pinged me twice
@Bart that's nice :)
@JanDvorak pic?
beats ahmad
impressive indeed, actually
that's page 1, there's more on page 2...
that's harassment, not at all impressive
Can anybody confirm if my answer is accurate?
A: Get rss feed of questions that have at least one answer

MoosemanNot possible at the moment, I'm afraid, according to the most exhaustive list of SE RSS feeds I could find. Your only option is to pull the all questions feed, then check each individual question's feed, which contains answers.

11:48 AM
@Mooseman Can you get a RSS feed out of searches?
@InfiniteRecursion I seriously think he might have written "sir" in there somewhere :P
A: RSS Feed for Searches?

Jeff AtwoodSearches are too performance intensive to be RSS feeds. If you can't express your search as a set of tags (we support and/or in tags, see the blog), which does have an RSS feed, I humbly submit you aren't trying hard enough. :)

@Mooseman Well, another answer suggests feed43.com works.
@Unihedron >>Sorry, service is temporarily unavailable due to maintenance procedures. Please visit us a few minues later.
@DroidDev I didn't bother to read all those pings... :P
11:55 AM
@Mooseman Aww.
@rene I had a look. Now what? ;)
@Unihedron Looks like it's starting to come back, but their ajax requests alert a broken page
@ShadowWizard Rollback Bart's edit and provide a screenshot of the deleted question instead ;)
@ShadowWizard but we both agreed on this:

@rene rollback Bart's edit? Are you insane? He'll Smite me down with his Stick! D:
I want rollback privilege... goes to find something to answer on MSE
11:58 AM
@InfiniteRecursion sure about that? Sometimes it leads to endless edit wars.... lol
@ShadowWizard Yes, am sure. The other day I felt helpless when that user wrote "InfiniteRecursion and ShadowWizard stop vandalizing my post"...all I could do was suggest an edit + raise a flag and wait....till you came and rolled back

@ShadowWizard yes, then the fun started :D

@ShadowWizard but it makes posts smell like cinnamon
12:05 PM
@Bart you should install browser extension then to filter away such smells
@Unihedron is this your way to crash the computer by infinite loop?
infinite recursion! :P
ohhhhh, neat!
but... it's not really recursion. Or is it?
No, it's not - recursion is a method calling itself, not other method
I don't think I've ever seen this mod out in the wild.
function what(){
    while(true){ what(); }
^^ Any volunteers?
@Mooseman that's better!
12:08 PM
@cVplZ They keep him on a leash most of the time. You don't want him out in the wild
You defined a function, but didn't ever run it.
@Mooseman IE already locked up on that
(function what(){
    while(true){ what(); }
That's better.
A bit more entertaining:
function what(){
    while(true){ what(); }
Takes longer to crash....
12:12 PM
@nicael didn't realize it was Nov 12th already, damn. That's a long time to not even login, all the other mods have been active within the last 2 days. Hopefully he's doing well.
I have Chrome hogging memory and bogging down the world with just while(true){ console.log('what'); }

@Mooseman obligatory "do you have any deleted questions"
@Mooseman Page not found.
@Rafflesiaarnoldii gone
Also the "recently deleted" pane only shows recently deleted questions, if it's older it's hidden.
12:22 PM
@Unihedron Maybe only mods and I can see that one. But it says "No deleted recent questions".
@Mooseman most likely old questions you forgot even asking by now that were deleted
it's in our nature to forget bad things ;)

Q: Each meta should have OT reason for migrate to MSE

Mooseman This question does not appear to be about [Site Name] or the software that powers the Stack Exchange network, within the scope defined in the help center. This includes the outdated "Stack Exchange Network" lingo, which became inaccurate when Meta SE was rolled out for "any discussion topics...

@Mooseman Can't have any thoughts when it's deleted.
@Mooseman: It's deleted :(
@Unihedron Got quick downvotes and panicked. I'll undelete it now.
I'll downvote it as well, no worries
1:41 PM
@rene Noooo - if people here dislike it, I'll delete it again.
Hmm... I think if it really deserves to be on MSE, a mod can do that instead of being voted to migrate. It's not really how it's supposed to work.
@Mooseman I started answering....
@Mooseman: me too.
I disagree, according to the help questions about the SE network as a whole is on-topic for the meta's. No need to migrate it.
That's as far as I came...
1:58 PM
@Mooseman Thank god I'm still on Win2K so I'm not affected...

If your job is distracting you from SO, you should probably quit your job. — Jason C 1 min ago
I think it's sound advice.
@JasonC The bullet points do not apply. I could use my own github to save code snippets for common problems, but SO has better SEO, which means not only am I helping others, I'm helping my future self having to dig around - now I can google it. With the cost of storage being negligible, I see no reason why SO cannot be a place to ask for code snippets. — samthebest 59 mins ago

@Shog9 Why did you reopen that question? And were you following the meta discussion on it?
@bjb568 Well okay then. I closed the PR.
Q: Should Docker questions go on StackOverflow or ServerFault

BryanThis question has been flagged as off-topic for StackOverflow, but a truckload of similar Docker-based questions go on StackOverflow every day, that are not flagged. Example, example. Topicality of "DevOps" Questions is about another Docker question, sounding similar to the above, that got flag...

No no no people birds! Do you know how difficult it is to solve a Rubik's Cube if another one is already doing so?
3:31 PM
@Shog9 That's great for general Docker questions but this specific question is lacking too much info. (Evidence: Even is lacking that even a Docker developer didn't know what the heck the guy was talking about.) i.sstatic.net/WZ4gR.png (which is now the only place to find the info) and meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/276629/… - Unless the OP includes relevant info it is an off-topic and not helpful question.
If you really want it reopened then at least edit the info from the comment image into the question.
@JasonC that's the question I migrated from MSE to MSO - prior to the Docker question being answered. Everyone got fixated on the comments there though, because... Well, frankly the asker was being a bit crazy. I don't think they're relevant, and I don't see anything particularly useful coming out of that discussion (apart from "the comments aren't relevant").
@Shog9 Independent of the crazy asker the question needs to be edited to add e.g. apache, the multi-threaded worker, and what he's trying to do. Otherwise it's at minimum unclear.
And I don't care enough to edit it. But I also didn't reopen it.
I don't think so; again, the asker was being really paranoid about all that; creack's answer seems perfectly reasonable to me.
@Shog9 Look, a user asked a question, then asked a dupe and deleted original one. New one should be nuked and old one unnuked.
3:37 PM
@nicael why? He's just digging his own grave this way.
@Shog9 creack's reasonable answer would not have been possible had he not had the information that was only contained in the comments and now no longer exists. The question on its own, without that info, does not stand.
Nobody else, for example, would be able to contribute a reasonable answer that applies to the OP's situation, since the OP's situation is no longer described.
@JasonC what are you talking about? The comments came after the answer. The comments were on the answer. The comments were the asker expressing confusion because he didn't read the answer.
@JasonC and yet, someone else did
Bleh, fine.
Maybe I subconsciously do not like docker questions.
I'm not entirely sure that's sub-conscious... ;-)
3:41 PM
Anyway, I was in there because of an "edit war" flag on the answer. Which I believe I resolved. Not worried about the question.
In any case, I am just going to close that tab and never return.
Anyways I should get work done today. \o
Q: Rolling question rate limits are now network-wide

Tim PostWhen you think of Q&A sites, you think of a place where you come to get answers to your questions. But, where do those answers come from? What doesn't immediately stand out for many folks is that it's not our software that's giving them answers, it's other people that are taking the time to share...

Wait a moment. Now "black magic" is in the "good" list? That sounds wrong.

@TimStone do you happen to know if the post score is update in a batch instead of the same transaction when the votes table gets an insert? It would confirm my hypothesis in this answer
@InfiniteRecursion sure
@InfiniteRecursion I prefer not to spend my time editing terrible ideas.
@rene Yeah, I'm fairly certain that can happen.
But you'd have to ask Nick to be sure.
Ok, tnx
(Ok, once in a while I do it. I do edit a really terrible idea. So long as it is not a wall of text. Anyway, I really really hate to see my face attached to it when I look at the active posts. At first glance, it looks like I posted the terrible idea.)
You do write nice answers to terrible ideas @Louis, and add value to them

> I just visited ExpertsExchange, and I was stunned by what they provide in addition to Questions and Answers.
The strength of Stack Overflow is its focus, however. Ask yourself: why is Stack Overflow so much more successful than Experts Exchange?
