> Logistically and legally, Comcast would assume control of Time Warner Cable's interest in Bright House if the merger is approved by state
 
@Braiam Comcast is awesome.
 
EXCUSES!
 
@Braiam Ugh, seriously? sigh
 
If you get the business, not residential.
 
best modem ^
 
user259867
12:01 AM
Depending on the region, there may not be much choice regarding cable providers.
 
@Fundamental Yeah, I think we have Bright House, AT&T, and that's about it.
 
user259867
For me it's either TWC or ... not cable.
 
I don't get US bypoly that you can get either cable or adsl provider and just that
 
@Fundamental You're right. Just look at what Shadow Wizard has to use. Not much choice there.
 
which is actually why I favor Google pushing to become an ISP
BTW, according to some, Google rocks
 
12:04 AM
@Louis I wish, probably that one is worth lots of $$$ these days :D
 
Probably.
 
@Braiam you mean Loon?
 
@ShadowWizard no, fiber
 
Back in the day, I broke into the mainframe at school by whistling into one of those.
 
Is that a 300 baud, or 110?
 
12:08 AM
 
@Lynn 0-300 bauds according to this page.
I like how they include 0 in the range.
I think all modems are able to hit 0 bauds.
 
hallo
 
o/
 
unsleeping now
 
now we only need to summon @uni
 
12:14 AM
@uni you are summoned.
@Uni come hence.
 
@ShadowWizard O_O
 
@bummi And the one that is linked to in the comments from that one: stackoverflow.com/q/1772524/656243
 
Does anybody know why exams are so easy?
 
I've had easy exams and hard exams in my life.
 
@LynnCrumbling I voted to close on both, one disappeared, it's from my freeware and licence investigation
 
user259867
@bjb568 It's your second day of school, and you have exams already?
 
12:32 AM
It might be because they are compensating for people's fear of it.
@Fundamental I had first semester's.
 
user259867
@bjb568 Because in HS, everyone is a winner and gets a prize. Not as much in college.
 
@Fundamental But quarters polluted with hard assignments and early deadlines so quarter grades suck more.
hard = I really can't do this WTH is it talking about and also things that take forever
 
cv-pls stackoverflow.com/q/6992840/1699210 same here a review seemed to disgree
 
@bummi if you're talking about vtc votes that disappear on old questions that's most likely vote expiration eating your votes.
 
@Louis It was fresh (few days) form my try to clean up freeware open-source licence I'd assume a reviewer would have thought it would be on topic
 
12:40 AM
@bummi cv'd on all these
 
thx to all

user259867
Not a new thing, but still neat: experimental fluid dynamics in your browser. Maybe not as fun as MS-DOS games, but... BTW, setting ultra-high quality is a way to stretch the browser to its limit.
 
It makes me so sad that the home page for Nibble Magazine was made using a FrontPage template.
 
Don't read the rules, post something, see reputation plummet. It's a hobby, I guess.
 
12:45 AM
@rene should have 40 new feeds
 
user259867
1:04 AM
Google+ SQL-upgrading Hangout has just started.
 
1:37 AM
@Fundamental And people are having issues. :P
 
lets shout "SAVE THE UNICORNS" so the servers don't come down
 
user259867
Brief summary so far: Windows updates, SQL backups, BIOS patches ... while they are trying to upgrade hardware.
 
@Fundamental The answer to everything: BIOS!
Your cat isn't eating? Update her BIOS?

@hichris123 @bjb needs to know this, just in case...
 
k
 
1:44 AM
lol
 
user259867
Makes your git issues seem so small in comparison...
 
Git still is confusing.
 
@Fundamental I have more issues, but not with git anymore. :(
 
user259867
But git being confusing usually is not a problem. Search SO for something that remotely looks like your situation. Copy and paste command strings into your console. Repeat until it works.
 
@Fundamental Safari handled it well (on a laptop here). What does the huge and brightness of a particle mean?
 
1:52 AM
@Fundamental that's too naive....
 
@Fundamental ^ what happened when I tried doing that
There should be 3 branches and one merge there.
 
what you need is git flow....
 
@bjb568 Rewrite history.
3
 
@hichris123 that sounds so cool taken out of context
 
@hichris123 That's what I did :P
 
1:53 AM
@Braiam I know, right? :P
 
> $ git flow hotfix start asets
> Switched to a new branch 'hotfix/assets'
@Braiam I found a typo after looking at their site for 3m…
 
@bjb568 stingy
the branch management is solid
 
k
Will test when has timez
 
user259867
@bjb568 Good question, no docs found. My best guess: brightness = velocity and hue = pressure.
 
We need a "people watching the live stream" room
 
2:00 AM
@Undo this room works just fine imo
 
Too much other noise :/
 
user259867
> We copy Stack Overflow to E: drive...
 
user259867
At the rate the SQL upgrade is going, chat upgrade / interruption seems unlikely.
 
well, it's time to head home. 'night all. taco bell, here I come.
 
> Stack Overflow takes a while to shut down
Wonder why :P
 
> on January 4rth
@Frank ^ :P
 
@LynnCrumbling yay tacos!
Poll: What instruments do you play?
 
2:38 AM
@bjb568 keyboard
 
Me too.
 
Eeek chat's going down.
 
user259867
EEEEEK
 
This one?
 
@bjb568 shrugs
 
2:41 AM
 
@Braiam Yes.
 
What's that from? Looks familiar.
 
@bjb568 hover over it.
 
Oh
I don't have the bottom bar thing.
 
wow mSE chat is 13GB
 
2:46 AM
kewl
 
How did you download it?
 
bigger than I would have guessed
 
user259867
@anorton mentioned on Hangout right now
 
oh.
 
@Undo database all our silly conversations, right?
 
2:50 AM
yup!
 
yeah :P
 
and spam
 
Someone go fix my errors: forum.xda-developers.com/chef-central/android/…. I'll give you XDA rep. ;P
 
And praises to moderators.
@hichris123 ew, a forum. Does your mom know that you went there?
2
 
user259867
I think the internal company chatrooms are also linked to MSE, no? For example, Bret Copeland "talked 5h ago" but obviously not in any room we see.
 
2:51 AM
@Fundamental right
@bjb568 lol
 
> It seized Melaka from the Portuguese and fought the British and Javanese for control of Java
O_O
People wanted Java?
 
We will be taking chat offline in a few minutes to move database servers in Oregon.
Eeek!
 
user259867
> Here's a command you don't want to issue...
 
I'm curious what'll happen when chat goes offline.
 
Panic
 
3:04 AM
yay! Panic!
Chat down yet?
nope.
 
user259867
Are we down yet? ... Are we down yet? ... Are we down yet? ...
 
no
 
user259867
Community put a 500 bounty on my question, nice.
 
user259867
It has good taste in questions.
 
@Fundamental Ye... wait, no.
 
user259867
 
@Fundamental yay
it looks kewl
 
user259867
Excluding Meta (as we should), the first user to reach 100K on two Stack Exchange sites is Daniel Fischer
 
@Fundamental Not Gilles? :O
Yep, guess he doesn't have 100k on two sites.
 
Huh
es muy interesante
haco mi tarea de la clase de español
 
in What on Earth? on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 3 hours ago, by J. Musser
I'm not a conspiracy theorist ...
@Frank is a conspiracy theorist by thinking he's not a conspiracy theorist.
 
3:18 AM
@hichris123 he's trying to confuse us!
 
lol
 
note to self: Frank is full of conspiracies
 
user259867
@Fundamental Source: This query. It does not show Fischer yet; the two users there have 100K on Meta and SO. Nobody else has even 75K on two non-meta sites.
 
Shog's kinda close.
 
Mis amigos poco compartímos las meriendas.
Is that right?
 
3:24 AM
depending of what you mean to say...
Mis amigos (y yo (implied)) compartímos un poco las meriendas.
 
Ugh, I think it's supposed to be -en, not imos
Spanish is confusing
We're doing conjugation.
 
... is the thing blowing up?
 
@Undo Caching, it takes an hour to blow up :P
 
@bjb568 darn, use the suffix correctly! ARGG!
 
:P
 
3:28 AM
(depending the suffix, you can change the voice, time, person, number, etc. of a word)
 
Many confuse
Such complicated
Very ugh
Kinda scary that I'm working on 1.2.3.14.1
Book, chapter, section, exercise, problem
 
eek
We are failing over to our redundant SQL servers now, there will be a brief maintenance page.
 
Eeeeeeeeeek, anyone else getting an ugly offline message?
... apparently.
 
yea
 
3:44 AM
heyyy, we're back
 
we were gone?
 
@bjb568 then who are the ones here... if we are gone?
 
:O
 
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
 
Hooray, I finally get to post my first decent AU answer. :P

@Shog9 shhhhh

Stupid md parser.
Anyway, that's the reason why I installed.
@Shog Have you read my flamey mail yet?
:P
 
4:20 AM
@bjb568 I think you must have sent it wrong.
 
I think the contact form is crap.
Looks designed so that people won't want to contact you guys :P
 
Did you use BBCode to format it? Because I delete anything with BBCode unread.
 
BBCode? O_O no
Does the thing support md?
 
user259867

Q: WHY do people ask "why" questions with the "why" capitalized and over-formatted?

BoltClock's a UnicornSeriously, WHY do people do this? And only with "WHY" questions — when asking other kinds of questions you hardly ever see anyone doing it. What is with this angry, demanding tone that seems to be so prevalent in "why" questions but not others? I've been observing this pattern for way too long a...

Nothing suspicious at all about an account created today, posting a wall of code while completely ignoring the question, and getting 2 upvotes within minutes, while the other two answers, one of which is posted by a moderator, which answer the question get no attention. Nope, it's just how SO works, I'm sure
 
user259867
5:32 AM
Hm. The author being a mod shouldn't be a factor, right?
 
@Fundamental No, but notice I said "suspicious"
The author being a mod is a factor for something else, but regardless of who's doing it or for what intent, it's simultaneously proving my point in my meta post
SO prides itself in quality answers to quality questions. By which I mean answers that totally ignore the question being perceived as more useful than answers that actually answer it
Because who cares about questions, honestly?
 
user259867
Let history will be their judge.
 
@SmokeDetector Even comes with bonus all-caps username!
 
user259867
Why is that even at SU?
 
5:49 AM
Why not? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
 
SU is for asking questions when SO refuses to let you because all your previous questions sucked, right?
 
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
 
user259867
And the all-caps block is still not implemented...

A: How to explain "instant" answers? Is there a secret queue or notifications for new questions?

Lightness Races in OrbitHonestly, it's simply just because many of us sit at our desks, day in and day out, not only refreshing our email inboxes and Facebook feeds, but also our Stack Overflow front pages. When we see something uninteresting and derivative, we cannot help but answer it. This process takes mere minutes ...
