your name is sandwich, and yet your avatar is a picture of sushi. — Jessy Cat 20 secs ago
I'll take that over "works like a charm"
May 8 at 2:49, by Telkitty
you claim to be a sandwich, but actually you are sushi
@sandwich Response: your name has "cat" and you don't look like @bjb568
12:07 AM
obviously you have not learnt set theory
There is only One True Cat, and this cat's name is bjb.
bjb is a cat, it doesn't mean, all cats look like bjb
I can confirm there are cats that DO NOT look like bjb
however, I think they are imposters
I agree. How can a cat not have those sunglasses?
Let's not fall into classical syllogism fallacies here... "bjb wears sunglasses; bjb is a cat; therefore, all cats wear sunglasses"
12:17 AM
no no
All cats are @bjb, if the cat does not have sunglasses, they ABSOLUTELY cannot be a cat, as they are not @bjb

Q: When you touch a part of a pan that is on a stove

LashleyWhen you touch a part of a pan that is on a stove

Looks like it takes about 5 minutes for their bot to detect a rejection...
12:23 AM
Was at +1 until now.
I guess someone else had the same question.
I expected lifehacks
LifeHacks is just applied Physics
A worthy competitor for the world's worst chart.
12:27 AM
not even a caption...
Oddly, Meta Stack Exchange is placed into category "Technology".
Should be either Culture/Recreation or Life/Arts
Did you really need to link it?
You mean, meta? Not really, but I want the site's name to show without me typing it.
12:34 AM
@sandwich Can you change the color code? It would be interesting to see betas vs. graduated sites.
so interestingly painfully enough, logging in on any site but stackexchange.com, goes to /users/login, however the homepage goes to /users/signin
which breaks my script....
I agree it'd be interesting, but I'll have to first find a way to tell which are which... I guess API /sites/ method will show that.
there's a graduated date on that method IIRC
Yes, and site_state is one of "normal", "open beta", "closed beta", and "linked meta".
The trick is in merging API data with Google's importXML data which is obtained differently.
12:40 AM
I guess I'll set a trigger to call API once a week.
Fun sad fact: API 2.2 was released on February 10, 2014.
If it didn't have bugs, this wouldn't be so sad.
1:00 AM
Also, what's the help-vampire comic?
@hichris123 Here it is: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/…
Gardening & Landscaping is at 10.0 questions per day!
Hopefully the graduated status will be updated by the weekly script.
@tchrist There's a help-vampire comic?>
It's a flow chart.
1:09 AM
@sandwich So it looks like views/day doesn't really matter, as long as you're at 10 QPD...
Mobile app seems to use undocumented API 2.3
based on sniffing TCP packet
Can everyone pass 2.3 for API version, or do you have to be an official app?
I believe it doesn't have to be an official app
I don't see anything special in calling the API, aside of access_token and key
There's also some hidden pages, like HNQ for mobile: stackexchange.com/hot-questions-for-mobile
(actually I don't know if I can expose this or not)
1:33 AM
@sandwich If it's like 2.2, you can use it, but at your own risk of course - if your account starts flagging random stuff or spamming comments, that's your own fault.
I do both of those things already, so... (well, I stopped spamming with auto-comments a couple months ago)
Well, I guess there's nothing to worry about then...
Great. The Windows 10 start menu doesn’t work after a full restart either. I am on the stable build not fast ring. This OS is terrible.
What did he expect for the price...
Yeah, the amount of times I have to restart my computer just to unlock it... (although I am on the Fast ring)
I honestly haven’t checked out the Stack Exchange Code Review site much, the performance questions could be fun. http://codereview.stackexchange.com/a/128538/15

A: How can you cut fingernails and toenails without nail trimmings flying everywhere?

shiningcartoonistWhat I often do when trimming my nails, toes or fingers, is grab a plastic shopping bag, open it on the floor and then place my foot or hand partly inside the bag and trim. It's quick, almost 100% effective, and is a fast easy cleanup. Plus, if you're like me, you have so many plastic bags you h...

A: How can you cut fingernails and toenails without nail trimmings flying everywhere?

AnkoClip your nails outside in nature. Your small organic compound deposit is appreciated by micro-organisms, and you don't have to care where it lands. Be courteous: don't do this where the scattered trimmings might bother others, such as in urban or built-up areas, or on grass likely to be used fo...

Even better...
@hichris123 wow
It's a good answer too
You start putting vegetables in sandwiches, next thing you know you're ordering pizza that's not pepperoni and your life is meaningless now
don't get it, I don't like pepperoni on my pizza
Wow, look at all of the spam suggested edits: meta.stackexchange.com/posts/168904/timeline
Just like clockwork... 01:54:48 when one was rejected to 01:58:57 when the next was proposed.
2:04 AM
Probably need IP ban or something...
Just rejected once more.
This is supposed to feed the IP ban in a very direct way, since the post had previous edits rejected as spam.
> If you suggest an edit to a post that has a certain number of edits rejected as spam recently and then that edit is rejected as spam - we deal you a blocking penalty in the spam system. -- meta.stackexchange.com/a/237055
Just played Democracy 3 for like 4h. Got Australia at full difficulty out so far that "Year" was maxed out so everything was basically stable.
There's no democracy in that game
@sandwich Likely one of those snowshoe spammers.
just in case
yay math lectures
2:16 AM
What kind of math?
@bacon Hm... I think the question is off-topic as well.
First half is Taylor polynomials and second half is integrals
That's a lot for one class.
For a two hour lecture, yeah
I think I should like learn a whole bunch of math on Khan academy or something
Y'know if this bot keeps it up I might get Reviewer eventually...
2:27 AM
You could write an edit-rejecting bot to counter it.
@sandwich just means that 40-some IPs are now banned.
Any particular pattern/range?
not that I can see
Columbia, China, Brazil, US, different part of China, Uruguay, back to the first part of China but different by maybe two bits, Indonesia, all new part of China, Vietnam...
huh, interesting...
2:36 AM
clearly, China needs to work on that firewall of theirs
graph requested on spammer/capita in various countries ... >_<
The VPN I connected up with my scraper has a function to change location every 40 page scrapes
@hichris123 it's good that the graph doesn't accurately reflect smokey's development
On a side note, I have a cat named smokey
on win dos, I can't sudo, what should I use instead?
2:47 AM
right-click, run as admin?
You can assign run as admin to the specific shortcut too :)
@bacon already in dos prompt
@Quill It sort of does. More time spent on spam filters - more spam reported - more time spent flagging and acknowledging reports.
Q: Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?

ukanthI always work on a non-administrator account on my Windows computer. Sometimes I need to install programs which requires administrator access. As I mostly use the Windows command prompt, is there a Windows command to escalate privileges, similar to the Linux terminal command sudo?

Use a shell emulator
adb shell is actually linux
it's a trick
I am talking about adb shell ... also I might need to log in as root to access files inside the phone
phones are all gnu
like how coffee shops are all actually communist party meetings
Feel free to take the takeaway option
2:56 AM
you think you're being a good capitalist peon and paying fat gobs of your hard-earned money for bean juice produced by the labor of other capitalist peons for the enrichment of John Galt
but really, you're just paying your membership dues
how can it permission deny my sudo??
how can it??
Try su instead. There's no sudo on Android.
A: Android: adb: Permission Denied

RomanAccording to adb help: adb root - restarts the adbd daemon with root permissions Which indeed resolved the issue for me.

nevermind, found solution
2:59 AM
A: adb shell su works but adb root does not

NgaNguyenDuyThe first you must enable root access via adb or adb and app in setting > Developer option > Root access. When you done, pls run adb root to restart adbd as root. Finally, you can as root when type adb shell you as root. :-)

I played with this long time ago
kept on forgetting things
Another good solution is not use Android
iphone is worse
trust me

Have you tried to debug your phone into oblivion? It's very fun :p
ITT: Lightness, arguing over semantics, and passive-aggressive auto-comments — oh my! — bjb568 23 secs ago
Of all the automatic Community actions, there is one that is obviously wrong, and is not hard to change, yet here we are three years later... A question should not be deleted by the user deletion algorithm if it has upvoted answers.
3:04 AM
Yeah, perhaps it would be good to write a bot to auto-reject edits. :P
JavaScript async/await implemented in V8 https://chromium.googlesource.com/v8/v8.git/+/d08c0304c5779223d6c468373af4815ec3ccdb84
Or, have reputation below 2K, then you don't have to worry about suggested edits.
;-; ignorance is not bliss
Nobody's going to approve those suggestions on Meta. And while a suggestion is pending, the bot can't make another one on the same post. Self-correcting problem.
3:11 AM
where's the fun in that. Gotta build some somewhat-useless bot to perform a simple task.
answers longer than a sentence get edits like that auto-rejected by the system, while still banning the associated IPs. So...
I found a Firefox bug :/
But what can you add to Lance's masterpiece?
It has to be what, 400 characters at least?
Well, there's always &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
3:16 AM
It's about 260 chars now, is that enough?
let's find out...
I remember 400 quoted by Mad Scientist once, don't know what his source was.
Try to make the post longer than 400 characters, after that threshold any anonymous suggested edit that radically changes the post is automatically rejected. — Mad Scientist Mar 22 '14 at 9:57
Hm, I haven't seen Mad around metas recently.
400 some places, 200 others
3:20 AM
Just open up Settings, then scroll all the way down to About phone. Once there, tap Software information, then tap Build number seven times. You'll see a toast notification alerting you that you are now a developer.
talking about black magic
no, black magic is tapping Android Version 3 times
And there has to be certain rhythm to the secret knock.

I'm convinced the guy sitting in the row in front of me is breaking up with his girlfriend over Facebook
I see, calculus lectures in Australia are the same as in the U.S.
@Quill how is that going for him?
@Quill that's horrible. What happened to the chivalry of breaking up via SMS? Kids these days...
I can't see the message text very well, and I don't want to lean in
in a hushed voice, ask him to zoom
3:31 AM
Use your phone to zoooooooooooooooom
@Shog9 Real kids break up over Snapchat.
I think they worked it out, I see a lot of heart emojis
Okay I can read the words "I love you" as well
shredding a paystub from 16 years ago. 68 hours netted me a princely $167
for some reason, the envelope also contained a ticket stub for 1999's "Man on the Moon"
and an unlabeled magnetic key
I need to move a bunch of native apps on to the SD card so I can dump more of my own apps onto the internal memory
priority, it's all about the priority!
3:38 AM
16 years ago... that's 8 BSO.
if I could move the native apps on to the SD card in the first place
I have a hunch that android wouldn't let me
I love you ♡♡♡♡☠
@Shog9 Just the stub?
I tell my chickens 'I love you' everyday, they just run away from me
3:41 AM
They know they will serve their purpose... some time
They'll get turned into bacon?
@Shog9 Where now the Dear John letters of yesteryear?
Medium, I would assume
4:08 AM
Time for a deprecation web tech lecture
My PHP assignment is due next week as well
See, Taylor polynomials aren't going to be deprecated by 2020, unlike most web technologies.
Web technologies don't confuse me like Taylor polynomials do
I tried to work on the assignment a while ago, I spent nearly the whole time writing a reeaaaaally shitty version of MVC + DI
The lecturer is going into video codecs and flash wtf
@Quill Here's something that has both. Unity+WebGL+Taylor polynomials
At level 0, the cannon aims at your current position, f(a). At level 1, it aims based at your current position and velocity, that is, shooting at f(a) + f'(a) * (x-a). At level 2, it's the 2nd degree polynomial. Etc.
4:24 AM
So Taylor polynomials are for calculating accuracy?
One can think of them as predictions for the future positions, based on the current position, velocity (1st degree), acceleration (2nd), jerk (3rd), and higher derivatives without specific names...
Using a rate and a point to calculate a best fit formula for the other values

@Sunshine if you feel it is really needed to re-visit everything the SOCVR ever did wrong then please post a question on Meta where you ask for us to be shutdown. Because your comment feels that way. We do mistakes but we also change and adapt if we screw up. Your comment doesn't address that, IMO.

@Shog sorry, but I can't see non-English there. Maybe broken English or slang, but no foreign languages...
@sandwich Looks interesting, but all the browsers I tried it on break down with an "unknown compression method" error (well, all but IE - that one doesn't even try...)
"gm" stands for "good morning". What non-English messages are there?
@ShadowWizard go back a day
7:46 AM
oh. sec.
also, I deleted like 5-6 messages
oh. Saw it.
because... they were flagged as offensive and I have no idea
Well, still.... will you unfreeze it at some point? Think they got the message.
And the owners should now enforce it better.
@Derpy and Edge? (which of course is "not" IE ;))
@ShadowWizard not tries since I am using Win 8.1 on this pc.
7:51 AM
su: permission denied
Btw, since you are here @Shog, I will leave this to your own judgment, but I think this one deserves deletion... But perhaps it is just me begin too oversensitive.
my life has no meaning ... because dumb phone
although I could now read log file
just can't adb pull it
coz ... ancient phone has no developer options
7:53 AM
not the full version
@Derpy too bad...
just some cut down version (thus adb enabled)
@Telkitty so.... upgrade?
@ShadowWizard Yep, I prefer my home one. It is white and has an apple on it.
@Derpy but no IE or Edge.
Don't you miss VBScript, @Derpy?
7:58 AM
@ShadowWizard apparently not.
@Shog9 this is... a different room.... ?
lol yeah, one more similar room
@ShadowWizard well, it has a different ID
Hey @berserk :)
Hey @Bart :)
long time no see
8:06 AM
@Shog9 well, I've posted my own warning... if you'll let it live we'll see how it goes. (of course, it's mainly up to the room owner and members, but still, IMO they deserve such a warning.)
Shog's answer on artificial rep inflation was interesting
@Quill where?
@JamesENL maybe he means this answer?
A: Bounty-like facility for rewarding excellent questions

Shog9The traditional reward for asking a good question is getting a good answer. Rep and such are icing on the proverbial cake, but pale in comparison to that primary reward of a solution to a practical question based on a real problem. But of course, there are now sites where questions aren't rea...

@ShadowWizard not at all ^_^
@Derpy but its syntax is simple... :)
@sandwich how you choose what questions to bounty? You have a list somewhere? Also, why 100 and not 50?
8:37 AM
A: What exactly is "artificial inflation of reputation", and where is the line?

Shog9First off, I gotta say that I really detest bounties. I hate that we have a bounty system, and generally-speaking I hate that people use it. All bounties are artificial rep inflation! But I also recognize that bounties are sort of a necessary evil, like gambling or usury: if folks are gonna do ...

@ShadowWizard BTW.... I am pretty disappointed in you as now -_-'
There is a " Is Shog9 a CM" message in the starboard.
a " bjb is a cat?" one too.
Where is my "Is Derpy a pony?" one?
Is Derpy a pony?
You see, @ShadowWizard? Even @bart is more considerate :P
"Even @bart" ... thanks?
@Bart OK, sorry, I forgot the proper addressing.
Even the Evil Sunglasses Overlord @Bart
better now? :P
11:21 AM
Is Bart a pair of glasses?
See @Derpy, the question is who pinned the Shog one. It can't be @Jason because he's not pingable meaning he wasn't in the room for at least 7 days. So it leaves either @Sunshine or Shog himself, both of which are not likely to pin yours.
You don't have to join the room, you can pin from transcript.
So if Shog9 is a CM, is balpha two centimeters?
@PhMgBr Why would balpha be twice than Shog?
@bjb568 unlikely with @Jason, IMO... but who knows...
@Derpy I kind of know your computer games preferences, but what about movies? Don't remember you talking about those. e.g. will you watch the new X-Men movie?
@ShadowWizard Well, it has to be someone
@bjb568 why not Sun?
11:38 AM
It's pinned by the community user, 'cause that's usually the only time confusions happen.
@Derpy much better
Hah, I'm guessing that non-English chat room from earlier won't be around much longer ..
11:55 AM
@ShadowWizard To be totally honest, I don't watch a lot of movies, and most of the time they are anime ones. Also, I am not really into American superheroes movies/comics
@Bart yeah, the one that isn't frozen yet... I admit my mistake, @Shog was right - there's no hope for those rooms.
@Shog9 is always right. And if he isn't, please rearrange facts so he is still right.
@ShadowWizard But, since you asked, I can say I prefer Marvel over DC because it seems to be the one with more inner conflict in their characters (as opposed to the Mary Sue image some Superman stories seem to go for)
The one character in DC that I like is Raven
@Derpy thanks, now I know. :)
In the animated Teen Titan version
basically, this one.
As for the why, it is because ti seem to be the only character with something going for it.
(constantly repressing emotions to avoid risking to get to the dark side and all)
12:00 PM
@Derpy well, not familiar with those...
@Derpy well that says something
Great, @Bart broke the "Is [someone] [something]" chain... :(
Is Bart the one who broke the chain?
@Quill Some like the "Tsundere" archetype because they find it cute, or they like to see the character finally soften down. That is not my case. What I really appreciate is that the character is given a valid reason to behave in a certain way.
12:09 PM
@ShadowWizard you're welcome
That is why, for example, I really appreciated the seemly random Christmas episode of Adventure Time that in the end actually explains Ice King's backstory (which also happens to be a pretty sad one)
@Quill @ShadowWizard Which, in a way, is still that "FEV" factor I told you about long ago Shadow, aka "Friendship Effort Victory" - the three columns in a shonen anime.
@Derpy for some odd reason, I totally forgot about that.
@ShadowWizard as expected from humans.
@Derpy so you gave up hope to make me into a pony?
