@PraxisAshelin how is it going so with the download ?
 
it finished, trying to install now
 
@PraxisAshelin did you pray ?
 
hmm
how to check a checkbox through keyboard only
 
ah cool
 
8:18 PM
TAB & SPACEBAR
 
ugh same issue
cries
 
me too
why don't you set the BIOS to default & try again
 
let me make sure you are marking the disk active while formatting/cleaning using diskpart
 
should I try that every single time again?
 
8:27 PM
@PraxisAshelin you should EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
¬_¬
 
lets take this step by step
have you set your BIOS to default ?
 
Start DISKPART.
Type LIST DISK and identify your SSD disk number (from 0 to n disks).
Type SELECT DISK <n> where <n> is your SSD disk number.
Type CLEAN
Type CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
Type ACTIVE
Type FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK
Type ASSIGN
Type EXIT twice (one to get out of DiskPart, the other to exit the command line tool)

those are the steps I follow
no atm I'm putting Win8.1 back on the USB
 
8:28 PM
then I will try to fix the MBR as per suggestion of someone else
 
but let me ask which disk do you select as i know you have two
 
after that I'll try resetting to factory settings
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like I just try both
 
don't mark them both as active
just mark one of them as active
 
well no, not both at the same time
 
what do you mean
 
8:30 PM
make one active > try the setup on both disks > fail > make the other one active > try again both options
 
you run the commands above twice for both the disks c?
 
I haven't done that every time but I'll do it now
 
and what about you just mark the disk active and leave the format fs=ntfs part
let it be unallocated and let windows try format it
 
tried that too with no avail

On nearly all SE sites, /search is the search page. On Careers, it's this guy. Well played.

8:34 PM
@NormalHuman lolwut
 
user259867
Users can pick a /path for their page on Careers. And he's clever.
 
what did we learn ;p
 
we can't have nice things
 
"We're looking for C++ developers that live and breath their work - it's not a just a job." ... why does that raise all sorts of alarm bells?
 
8:51 PM
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like reverted to default BIOS settings, same issue
lies down and cry

user259867
Typo hunters pounce on the question....
 
@PraxisAshelin what's the plan now ?
 
9:13 PM
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like I honestly ran out of ideas
 
can someone flag this ? superuser.com/questions/946070/…
@PraxisAshelin me too
 
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like install Debian >:)
 
find a store that will accept custom built pcs and pay a few hundreds euros to hopefully have it fixed? :/
 
user259867
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like flagged as OT
 
vtc'ed
 
9:14 PM
@NormalHuman thanks
 
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like thought for a minute you'd linked my Q xD
 
@PraxisAshelin that sounds like too much after spending so much time on this
 
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like I know
 
that would leave me heart broken
 
@PraxisAshelin INSTALL DEBIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111111111ELEVEN
 
9:15 PM
yeah why not linux or anything else
 
it's a gaming pc
 
err... you know that Steam runs on linux, right? RIGHT!
 
I don't use steam
 
9:16 PM
well, the point is, that many games already have Linux versions
 
not the ones I'm playing

i was going through my store recently and found this i.stack.imgur.com/D9Ygs.jpg
i put batteries in & voila. it still works after 14 or 15 years
 
user259867
9:42 PM
@Braiam If you define it as "the art of ..." then it's definitely not a verb.
 
user259867
And a dictionary would not have a verb in "-ing" form anyway... so a noun it is.
 
@NormalHuman I read it as "the action of..." which is a verb

Both Portuguese Language and Arabic Language are in public beta now.
 
@DroidDev did you figure it out?
 
10:01 PM
4 projects are at 100% for tomorrow's Beta Launch Tuesday

bluefeet ended up at the very end of /about/team page
 
user259867
@KevinBrown Three of those are reboots (the exception being Open Science)
 
@NormalHuman Comparing area51 stats for PT and AR shows interestingly different summaries.

It's going to be a nontrivial amount of headache for SE team, in return for a trivial amount of traffic.
 
@NormalHuman that's fake... I can't see the feets

Looks like a false alarm.

@SmokeDetector fp- but notably, it was triggered by an actual spam domain used as an example in that post.

user259867
I was curious about chat rooms is small Id numbers.
 
user259867
1: Sandbox, 2: Chat Feedback (frozen), 3: SE Tavern (frozen), 4 and 5 are private.
 
user259867
After that it's regular chat rooms: 6 for WordPress, 7 for WebApps... however 8 is private again.

Jeff Atwood on December 15, 2010
As we approach the end of the year, I thought I'd roll up some statistics that people occasionally ask about.
 
user259867
From back when this wasn't a 25K privilege.
 
11:48 PM
@NormalHuman The new privilege will only answer one of those questions.
But you don't need that. Google provides an outsized portion of traffic for nearly every site on the network.
 
user259867
When this goes live, I'm probably posting a self-answered question on meta.Math... "what are our site analytics currently?"
