@Pandya it is a little broad but if you add an example of html where you try the feature I expect I can find a duplicate for that.
a good source for html/css/javascript stuff is MDN

It's so sad seeing SE sites with safari's responsive design tester.
 
You don't need to test it, responsive design is not a feature, so it can't be broken...

6:25 PM
@AnnaLear Around?
 
@Undo ish
 
@AnnaLear Heard you were getting a lot of logins from ChatExchange / Smokey, what kind of volume are we talking about?
 
sec, lemme dig that up again
 
@AnnaLear that's chat logins, not API, right?
Holy crap
 
That's number of new sessions generated for SmokeDetector on stackexchange.com
 
6:34 PM
Ooookay
 
*.stackexchange.com, technically
so, something happened when we rolled out universal login that jacked up that
 
That's every 10 seconds ish. Eek

I'm going to turn on reporting in CHQ for every time it restarts, because that should be the only time it logs in
 
@Undo are you trying to auth per site, by any chance? I haven't looked at the SD code at all, so this might be a stupid question.
 
6:37 PM
@AnnaLear Shouldn't be, but I'm not an expert on CE code.
 
Manish says "CE only needs to login once per session. The client holds on to a Session which is used with each request, so once logged in it should stay logged in unless the session expires or something."
I don't know off-hand what that means for how SD works.
 
Smokey mostly uses CE as a black box.
!!/rev
 
That should log every time it restarts, I'm going to look for a way to identify the current session
 
Cool. If you're holding on to the same session between restarts, it should work fine... Not sure what CE considers a "session", though. It sounds like it might be logging in once per a batch of requests and then throwing that away which is suboptimal.
 
6:41 PM
"suboptimal" ... got to remember that
 
On the other hand, the numbers went WAAAAAYYY up when we flipped the switch on universal login. I'd expect the effect to be a lot less dramatic since we've been generating account-level sessions for per-site auth for a while now. So I got no real theories.
Let's see what your monitoring turns up and go from there, @Undo. :)
 
@AnnaLear Seems like it has to be doing that, because we're only forcing a restart like every hour (or maybe six hours?). Either way, not every ten seconds.
Yeah, I'll look into it.
 
Thanks!
 
No problem.
 
@AnnaLear, Can you look at the Zephyr user? It uses ChatExchange as well and is logged in almost constantly. Did it's numbers jump too?
 
6:45 PM
I'll see if Closey is affected...
 
(cc @ProgramFOX See messages above, Smokey is eating things it shouldn't be.)
 
nope, doesn't look like they did
 
Weird. So it's a smokey problem.
@Andy What CE rev are you on?
github.com/Manishearth/ChatExchange/commit/… matches the timeline fairly well
 
@Undo I updated at a day or two ago. ProgramFox had a push for Chat actions. I try to stay relatively current
@AnnaLear Thank you
 
6:47 PM
@Andy Okay
Only thing that happened on 7/8 on SD code with logins is updating CE
I'd still bet a dollar that github.com/Manishearth/ChatExchange/commit/… did it somehow
 
@PraxisAshelin I held myself from saying this last time we discussed your computer. you should be a happy gamer now :D
 
If only because "and turns out, we don't need it!" :)
 
@Undo That actually fixed the problem I had when the Universal logins were enabled. A login path was removed and CE couldn't get through it
 
Right, it made it work
 
Let me hunt down the logs for the error I had at the time. I'll move over to the Charcoal room too
 
6:50 PM
chat.se auth used to rely on GlobalAuth and you'd need to do a weird dance to get chat to recognize that you were logged in sometimes. I'm ... not 100% sure under what conditions that happened. (And I rewrote chat auth. That should scare you, because it does scare me. ;))
 
@Andy I'm betting it got rid of some kind of caching somewhere.
 
It doesn't help that I'm going to be gone starting Sat morning through Tuesday.
 
point being, now chat.se uses the same auth session as chat.meta - it's all running off of the same cookie that gets you logged into *.stackexchange.com sites.
 
Okay, I'm going to start logging actual login events in CE
(unless I get pulled away to eat lunch, then who knows)
 
6:51 PM
@AnnaLear any other session-counts that are very high? Like Closey?
 
@rene nothing for stackexchange there and very low counts (highest is 3) for stackoverflow
 
Ok, tnx
 
there's one more account we found, but I'm not sure what it's doing. definitely logging in with a python useragent that says "bot", but the site profile also has 5k+ rep.
4
 
@Bart I remember that, I'm still laughing from last time
 
It's hilarious ... but true ...
 
6:56 PM
I should dig up traffic logs for that one.
 
@AnnaLear Where Smokey has four accounts across the network, one "login" would generate four sessions, correct?
 
4? Shouldn't it only be 3? stackoverflow, stackexchange and meta.stackexchange?
 
@Undo No, one login would generate one session per second-level domain. So in that case, two? one for SO, one for SE. and that's assuming you're running javascript that would trigger cross-domain auth
 
Ah okay
 
assuming no js and logging into *.stackexchange.com site (including se.com itself), you should generate only one session
 
6:58 PM
Either way, it'd have to be at least every thirty seconds or so to get those numbers
 
you know what. we did fix a bug with session generation yesterday as well...
 
(brb eating)
 
lemme refresh my memory on what it actually was
 
Pity that delete votes are linked to reputation, many of those with sufficient reputation probably don't have any use for them ....
 
hm, it was in the cross-domain part of the flow. so probably not related... still, counts dropped from near 10k down to 5.6k yesterday, possibly after the fix? @Undo I'll keep an eye on the counts for the next couple days as well and see if this was something on our end after all.

7:18 PM
@AnnaLear Okay, that seems like the most likely thing based on timelines. If that spreadsheet was realtime, then it's only logged in 10 times and there's only five hours left in the day. I'll watch it anyway, ping me if it explodes again.
 
oh jeez, yeah, it's almost midnight UTC

user259867
8:22 PM
What do they mean by this?
 
@NormalHuman that you don't need to worry about the argument limit, ie. max(1,2,3,4,...,30,31), since the documentation (one of them) is wrong
I'm wondering if it's MS Excel MAX()
 
user259867
I thought that page was the documentation... I've no idea where else MAX would be "specified".

Q: How can I get the Windows 8 start-screen in Windows 10?

cybermonkeyI was skeptical about the modern-UI interface in Windows 8 (and 8.1), having been a Windows 7 user for a while, but slowly got used to it. My laptop got the upgrade to Windows 10 yesterday that I had reserved a while back; the upgrade process was fast and overall Windows 10 runs far better than ...

Seems pointless and perhaps somewhat of a meta-tag to begin with. But that's for Drupal SE to sort out

Today's question on Web Apps is more mathematical than much of Math.SE content... express the "clamp" function f(x) = max(0,min(x,1)) as a spreadsheet-friendly formula using x only once.
 
user259867
Spreadsheet-friendly = able to be applied to an array, which for example breaks min and max approach.

@bummi why the change of heart?
 
@Bart looks as he is a collecting a tag cleanup task, which will help to close many of those which need to be closed
