@sgtz I don't know; the redis choice was before I started — Marc Gravell ♦ Mar 8 '12 at 16:06
@sgtz we cache like a crazy thing, so cache performance is very important. Invalidation is less critical, to be honest. We're pretty happy with our current setup. — Marc Gravell ♦ Mar 10 '12 at 8:48
 
@Quill has the power gone to your head yet?
 
not yet

is the Townhall at like 1am for you @JamesENL?
 
@Quill that's just normal behaviour

> (40:35) Nick complains about how slow Visual Studio is to reload projects. Their developers have scripts that just kill and restart Visual Studio, because that’s faster than handling project reloads.
 
1:28 AM
VS is slow with everything.
 
Why is town hall at 1AM here? :(
 
I got 3am

It's in the middle of my Physics exam :/
 
@bjb568isnotapebble Your fault, not ours.
 
@Zizouz212 :((((

@bjb568isnotapebble It's on June 22... plenty of time to write a town hall chatbot.
 
@bjb568isnotapebble I know. I was really hoping to pop in as well!
 
I guess you'll just have to miss some Physics.
 
Miss! I'm must going to head out so I can participate in an internet conversation. Not a big deal during final exams, right?
 
just finish early
 
1:36 AM
∆t = just right to make sure you can't finish early.
 
@soup !bjb oh wait...
 
@soup nice
 
user315433
So about that answering closed questions... the answers I dislike most are worthless commentary on an unanswerable question, they typically come from low-rep users, and make the Q&A pair more difficult to get rid of.

What if... a question with a close vote was automatically protected?
 
1:47 AM
Now that's an interesting thought.
@soup Dare I suggest asking that on Meta?
 
user315433
Meh-ta. I'm mostly out of that thing.
 
Yeah, that's what I guessed your response would be...
I think it's a reasonable idea. Or, instead of a close vote, a downvote (score -1) - those are much more publicly visible.

> Jon asks about their use of GitLab. Nick says it works okay, but they’re testing GitHub Enterprise internally due to performance. GitHub is significantly faster, search works a lot better (due to using Postgres search rather than Elastic Search), and there are some nice new features in GitHub like squashing commits.
@haneycodes @dhekke you're undermining my willingness to assume good faith with salesfolk here!
 
Looking at SO questions is kinda depressing. A +1 Python question likely couldn't find the file because they ran the script in a different folder than their file (and they didn't reference the full path), another question was due to a , on one line...

If I'm not mistaken, the retirement of cardinal and mbq was never announced. Digging... (I remember cardinal being fairly active on meta.Math, where their position mostly aligned with mine. Back when I had a position there.)
 
@hichris123 Close both as typo
 
user315433
+1 may be from First Posts queue, where an upvote could mean "a question is possible to understand at some level"
 
2:18 AM
@JamesENL I voted, but the likelihood of getting 4 more votes...
 
@hichris123 linky?
 
user315433
Which leads to SOCVR again...
 
Done
 
user315433
I agree with the comma-question being a typo, but the filename thing may be a common error.
 
user315433
2:23 AM
for filename in infilename:
    f = open(filename, "r")
 
user315433
This looks reasonable if one imagines that a directory is a list of pointers to files, which we now can open.
 
user315433
In reality it's a list of strings, but that's a conceptual difference.

can a 15k SO user protect this? stackoverflow.com/q/37848650/1079354 also, free flags!
 
2:27 AM
@soup Hrm, that is true. I wonder if there's a good dupe target (if it's a common error, hopefully there's a dupe).
@Braiam Ugh that whole question should be deleted.
 
yes
 
@Braiam you could just ping Undo ;-)
 
@hichris123 if you get it to -3 I will find 17k rep in two hours
 
@Undo could you undo that travesty of a question?
 
Big question is, has BitBucket fixed the issue? Agree with keeping this around until then, if for no other reason than someone will probably post another thread if we don't. — Shog9 ♦ 47 secs ago
You already awakened Shog. :)
 
2:31 AM
it happens like every few days
BitBucket is crap
 
IMO the issue is fixed
 
they haven't updated their status page yet.
 
Huh, how about that? Status updates from stack overflow... — Captain Hypertext 14 mins ago

user315433
Bug: clicking "close" on a question that was closed after page load (or "flag" on a post that was deleted after page load) brings up "You may only load the close/flag dialog every 3 seconds".
 
there were several answers saying "this is fixed, blablabla"
 
2:34 AM
@soup Yeah, I noticed that too yesterday.
 
I can never reproduce that bug... :/
 
I can
 
user315433
@Braiam Spam answers on SO are convenient for repro. Load and wait with flagging.
 
can we at least protect it to stop all these "same here" comments
 
@Braiam you gonna believe random people on the 'Net? Pfft.
 
2:36 AM
congrats, you figured out it's a server issue
 
@Quill it's closed, ATM. No need to protect until reopened.
 
okay

Q: Trying to vote to close on closed question displays wrong error message

FloernWhen I try to vote to close a question that already got closed in the meantime, I get the error message: You may only load the close dialog every 3 seconds. But I definitely did not open the close vote dialog before. When I reload the page, the question is closed (with the 5th vote of an...

Q: Flagging a deleted answer results in a message saying I am flagging too quickly

Michael KjörlingSteps to reproduce: Open two questions (with answers, in this case) in different tabs in the same browser Flag an answer to one (might not be needed, but it's what I did, so I'm including it) Someone else (might need a diamond for this) deletes an answer to the other Without reloading the secon...

 
@Shog9 you believed that I believe random people on the net? pff, jokes on you :P
 
I can reproduce it if I double-click fast... — Braiam Jun 9 at 20:51
Uh....
That's not exactly reproducing the bug. :P
 
2:37 AM
that's what you get for believing someone who wants you to believe he believes random people on the 'Net
 
Am I supposed to believe someone who is commenting on believing someone who wants you to believe he believes random people on the 'Net?
 
I need to stab the guy that invented reversed reverse psychology
 
user202362
you & me are some of those 'random people' on the internet
 
A reopen vote? sigh
 
user315433
2:40 AM
The misuse of "random" makes me ask for a clarification at times: do you mean "random" or "internet-style random"?
 
Seems like a request for resources stackoverflow.com/q/23575656/3296811
 
Well, at least no one gets to keep the rep if it's deleted within the next few weeks.
 
@Quill Well that's one employee we're not going to see for a while
 
@soup true random
 
@JamesENL It's for work. nickcraver.com/desktop-build :)

I'm a very deterministic person on The Internet, thankyouverymuch.

Oh, and chat doesn't like URLs with *
 
@Shog9 I'm sure you never do anything out of spite or emotion.
 
2:44 AM
after half a day of having "You got mail" set as my ping noise, I realised that wasn't a good idea
 
I wonder where that post was linked to. Doesn't look like Reddit, maybe HN? Does Google really push things up in the search results that quickly?
 
user315433
It does.
 
user202362
Oo, an answer with 165 upvotes does not work
 
user202362
how lovely
 
user202362

2:49 AM
Got it; that meta.stats post was the announcement of two mods retiring.
 
@hichris123 of course I do, but I do so predictably.
One can't get angry or hurt just randomly, that'd be messy.
 
That's weird, how a floating head can not do a mess?
 
[ SmokeDetector ] Offensive answer detected: Can't connect to the device with ADB when it's in recovery mode by jeb on android.stackexchange.com (@meatball)
 
@Shog9 Getting angry and hurt predictably... where's the fun in that...
Considering there hasn't been an upvote to the answer in 15 minutes... I think that BitBucket fixed whatever it was.
 
@Quill ya 'round?
 
2:59 AM
hey there
 
@hichris123 they finally updated their status page about 12 minutes ago
 
@hichris123 it's reopened
 
@John I guess you could call that the Tavern effect... :)
 
@John because shog reopened it
 
3:02 AM
@Shog9 Just a little late.
 
yay! Shog will delete a question :D

Q: What is the best way to deal with a temporal event which gets a lot of attention?

MakotoI'm thinking that I have this down pat, but just in case... Right now (behold, another temporal event), Bitbucket is having a bit of maintenance. Someone asked a question to figure out why their push was failing, and the net result of the answer is that it's on Atlassian's end. What I'm thinki...
