I did get lucky.
Just double your rate and retire at 35 instead of 70 ...
I could convince the client to do that but it's a battle that I have no interest in participating in.
I am 35. Doubles rate, closes computer, retires.
I don't think it worked, lol.
Ok bbl, coming out of retirement.
It was worth trying .. ;)
Just triple your rate and retire at 40 instead of 60 ...
going freelancer was the best decision I've made in my career so far
and I regret I was too scared to take the leap sooner
3:17 PM
@Stijn sooner? Considering you're a 18 y/o teenager you talk about child labour.... :P
3:29 PM
Stijn didn't come from a womb. He just left his cubicle
what's the command for asking smokedetector "why"?
@SmokeDetector why
@Bart Post - Bad keyword eltima and body length under 750 chars
@Bart so simple and obvious
@Stijn licks ice cream cone
Given that the same thing is recommended by a 12K user here, I'm okay with it being on the site...
Myeah, not touching that one. Eltima has seen a lot of spam, but it's very tricky about it
hey @zaq, you're a math guy right?
Do you grasp en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Predicate_(mathematical_logic) ? I don't and have never managed to, is there some secret to unlocking what it means?
3:40 PM
@Stijn @Moosebot do it better
@Moosebot lick @Stijn
ugh, he's off :(
@Magisch did you ever do any logic programming? Prolog for example?
@Bart no
@Magisch do you know some .NET and LINQ?
LINQ makes heavy use of predicates
@Stijn I think he means in math, not programming
@ShadowWizard isn't it the same concept? Granted, my knowledge of maths is rusty and I never saw predicates in that context.
3:47 PM
What exactly is your roadblock @Magisch?
@Stijn don't think it's the same, maybe just the very general idea of this
For example, if I have a predicate Dog(X) and I keep checking it on all beings, you get that {x|Dog(x)} would be a set of all dogs?

Why eltima is bad

@zaq ^
@Bart I don't know what exactly a predicate is
Or how it's conditions are defined
4:05 PM
What do you mean by "how its conditions are defined"?
I'm having issues understanding what a predicate is
Like what exactly is that even
If I had Dog(x) what does it do and what can I do with it
It's a testable statement of fact. I can use it for any object and it will tell me whether or not that's a Dog
So if I were to say Dog(bjb) it would tell me nil or False or whatever
So Dog(anyone) would give me if anyone's a dog
Can I do IsInteger(x) for a predicate?
4:09 PM
Yes, for example
so calling IsInteger(someValue) would give me true or false if the value is an integer
@Bart Objection! If it behave like a dog and barks like a dog, it is a dog.

@VotetoClose bark
@Bart is that it ?!
4:09 PM
Pretty much in the basis
For example, in Prolog you can create a fact such as Cat(bjb568).
I failed out of university because of this
If I then were to write DoesMeow(x) :- Cat(x).
F**** me
4:13 PM
It would tell me True for DoesMeow(bjb568).
Don't be too hard on yourself. I didn't understand anything about Functional Programming when we had Miranda as a first course ... and then Lambda Calculus came along in another course I all of a sudden everything made sense.
@Derpy IsGoodBoy(bjb568)?
4:34 PM
@Bart chat.meta.stackexchange.com/… shows no results, so we can safely say that at least no one caught him red-handed. Yet.
This is bringing back memories of all the weird (but fun) SML courses I took in college.
Which I totally crushed, by the way. Not to toot my own horn or anything. flex
I remember having an assignment in Miranda which we managed to solve. We compared our solution with those of other classmates and we had 2 pages of code where they had at least 4. We went into the oral exam all confident ... until the teacher showed us his 12 line solution ...

FWIW, those auto-generated review comments are supposed to be automatically deleted every week if they haven't been acted on (or replied to)... Turns out, the task that does this has been failing for months, so I'm manually deleting 20 thousand or so of them right now, but hopefully that starts happening more reliably soon and there's less need to be flagging them. — Shog9 ♦ 32 mins ago
For some value of "manually". Presumably, not going from one to another....
The kind of manually that still gets me temporarily banned from accessing SO.
6:27 PM
@Shog9 I really want to see you post a rant on MSE passionately complaining about unfair throttling. Bonus points if you throw in moderator abuse of power.
You know it would be comedy gold.
Yeah, that would be awesome
@JasonC we can also ask how many requests it takes for him to be blocked, so we can finally reverse engineer the answer for this
No that's too practical. Answers to that rant should be limited to explaining that he really ought to go through the contact form, but was probably throttled for a good reason, and should consider cooling off before sending any emails. Also extra credit if they list all the times he's been throttled in the past, and point out that he should've gotten the hint the first time.
Double extra credit for answers that start with the words "Normally I'd keep this private, but since you seem to want to do this here ..."
Double double extra credit (plus comedic street cred) if Shog self-answers.

@Andremoniy I was replying to meagar. He misread the message. You did not delete the answers and your account is not compromised. The answers were deleted because the parent question was deleted, which takes out the answers with it. — animuson ♦ 27 mins ago

@hichris123 @JasonC can you move chat.meta.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/5755674#5755674 and the next one to the Trash, I was too quick with my judgement
Sure, hide your crimes. We know!!

Has there been a mud fight or what?
Hi again.
Hi Aaron
How are you today?
I'm super!
And you?
I'm OK, thanks
@zaq by the current state of affairs those 3 will be elected, right?
Why is a current mod running again?
9:02 PM
I assume he is Pro Tempore so he wasn't elected previously
ok, makes sense.

@JasonC I wish I had 10k on MSE :(
