Rose Hulman is a good place for mathy-techy folks.
Meanwhile, after winning the Biology election, AliceD is taking over CogSci as well.
I've heard good things about him
Hey best buddies
> Get ready: Tomorrow at noon EDT, you're going to make your first web page. Save the time, join us then! -- Glitch at 9:27 AM - 12 Apr 2017
Not very inclusive, referring to EDT on the Internet.

The first webpage I made was in 1999, afair.

I erm. Run wordpress ;p
On the other hand, I set up the entire system it runs on from scratch

@ShadowWizard someone's muscling in on your territory: stackexchange.com/users/5030104/wheat-wizard
@JamesENL I give him my permission. Enough room for many wizards. ;-)
Fair enough
1 hour later…
6:06 AM
@JamesENL well, I'm a Fair Wizard
6:16 AM
Really? I thought you were a shadow wizard.

7:54 AM
@JourneymanGeek the user name is wrong. If any, it should read "Shadow Wizzard"
@JourneymanGeek shadow is fair by design ;)
8:12 AM
spammer moved to MSE. Big mistake.
@JNat cross site heavy spammer stackexchange.com/users/10676233/opaly?tab=activity can you please nuke?
8:29 AM
@ShadowWizard THAT GUY
(Someone was asking me about him on root access. goif pointed at smokey.)
@JourneymanGeek hmm? The spammer? What about him? (or her....)
Yeah ;p
I don't really have a reason to THAT GUY JNat for the moment
@JNat is a great guy... nuking all dem spammerz
@JourneymanGeek "for the moment" ;)
8:41 AM
@JNat You might become THAT GUY.
Who knows what horrors the future holds.
no no, that won't be good
for now tho, the spammer is THAT GUY
Let @JNat develop in his own way
@ShadowWizard damn it jim, he's a CM, not a developer. ;p
(He could be both. Who knows)
8:42 AM
@JourneymanGeek Jim?
He is João, and his official role is "Community Operations Team Lead". ;)
@ShadowWizard all gone
@JNat thanks! Hope he won't be back....
@JourneymanGeek nah, @JNat isn't a dev
@ShadowWizard I try not to assume ;p There seems a fair mix amount CMish sorts
8:44 AM
I know some code, but I'm not a dev, no
@JourneymanGeek oh lol, I did watch Star Trek but long ago, as a kid, so missed those.... ;)
@ShadowWizard funny thing is I've only seen the Kelvin Universe stuff
@JNat fair enough! :)
@JourneymanGeek that is true, each CM and his/her own skill set

@Bart @rene which of these is correct? de uitvoerdatum en -tijdstip or de uitvoerdatum en het uitvoertijdstip? I'm not sure which one is correct due to the article being different.
in Charcoal HQ on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 3 mins ago, by Jan Dvorak
April fool's joke idea: for one day, change everyone's username and gravatar to the respective defaults, without a way to change them back. Also, hide reputation.
@Stijn I'd say the latter.
@Bart I was leaning towards the latter. Thanks for confirming :)
@JanDvorak lol
@JanDvorak that would be interesting
I honestly have no idea if that's a rule @Stijn, but the former irks me beyond belief :D
10:14 AM
@JourneymanGeek We live in interesting times :-D
@JanDvorak lol. I'd wonder how long people would take to guess who I was.

Did anything come of Mystical's visit to Tavern a couple of days ago?
A meta post? Or something
"Mysticial in the Tavern: Time to take a stand"?
@Bart Ban people from 7 sites from coming to the Tavern?
Particularly ELL and Chemistry
And glasses.SE
Well ... kinda saw this coming ... but not for that reason.
11:22 AM
You were expecting voting irregularities?
He seemed to have gone to Sandbox and posted rude comments
But I was already late to the flag party, so
Q: Why the apache tomcat logo looks like a retarded cat?

user2583264It's just me, or the cat in the apache tomcat's logo looks retarded? It doesn't even have eyes, and just 3 paws instead of 4.

What about GitHub's Octocat?
@M.A.R. I would have expect the cool down reason. Or has that been changed to this?
@Bart Eh, this reason or the other
Who cares
@Bart I think those are different reasons though
A mod should confirm
11:29 AM
Ah, I see he has been editing rude content into his posts

@Derpy This is relevant.
12:13 PM
@M.A.R. actually, it was meant to be a comment about Bart message above but forgot to reply and didn't notice until too late
@Bart why? He violated the "Be Nice" rule.
Or "Don't be a Troll" rule.
And I'm 100% sure he'll be back in 6 days and keep it going as if nothing happened.
@JanDvorak there was one like that, where all avatars were changed to Rebecca
@ShadowWizard huh, the system decided to update the HTTP link right after you edited the post? :\
onebox is broken.
@Stijn hmm?Where? Things right now are really weird.
Chat cloned my messages, I logged out to prevent more damage
Trying to onebox cause a timeout, then it clone the message again.
and again
and again....
Bug report coming soon if this won't fix itself.
@Stijn oh lol, well it was ~30 seconds after my edit, looks like coincidence yes.
Can you try to onebox a post? @Stijn
(BTW, those edits don't cause a bump, so we can't know which other posts were edited)
works for me
Q: MathJax CDN (cdn.mathjax.org) will be shutting down

robjohnThe news that MathJax CDN shutting down on April 30, 2017 was recently brought to my attention. I have updated ChatJax to use the alternate server given in the MathJax post. It seems to work well, but if StackExchange is going to host a local copy to use with the sites that support MathJax, I w...

ninja-fixed perhaps :)
Let's try again the one I tried to onebox before
Q: We're all Rebecca Chernoff \o/

Yi JiangOn this frabjous day, our community manager Rebecca Chernoff has graciously allowed all of us *1 to be her for one day, and one day only. And so, ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you: We're all Rebecca Chernoff \o/ A userscript dedicated to making all of you Rebecca Chernoffs. Reall...

@JanDvorak ^
12:32 PM
@M.A.R. yeah, he most likely got angry at us for laughing at him and left.
Never to come back.
@Stijn probably while the link change job was running onebox was broken for some reason.
Maybe onebox works with a job too, and only one can run in the same time.
1:02 PM
@ShadowWizard your fault. For shame
We could have fresh new users join us in our establishment, and you scared them off
@Bart no. @M.A.R.'s fault. Only @M.A.R.. @M.A.R. is the only one to blame. @M.A.R. alone.
@Bart not just any user, the user with the highest upvoted answer ever on SO! :D
Even more than Jon Skeet!
Yeah, that answer is amazing
It should be framed.
That answer is the Omphalos of Stack Overflow.

> All Q&A sites except Stack Overflow and Discuss.Area51 are now defaulting to HTTPS. After the Stack Overflow move, we'll enable HSTS. -- Nick Craver at 5:13 AM - 13 Apr 2017
@Gerry about time... took him several years. But never too late, I guess. :)
Guess most of the time went on just planning though.
1:39 PM
Let's test something
@ShadowWizard !!/blame
@Mithrandir It's Mithrandir's fault.
Older message appears after newer message
1:43 PM
@ShadowWizard time for meta post?
@Mithrandir !!/blame
@ShadowWizard It's Shadow Wizard's fault.
@Mithrandir did you do anything special?
That's some heroic editing effort by Community. On Math, it now has over 60000 edits. In late March, it was 4338 edits
@Gerry lots of links....
1:58 PM
On SO, it's up to 131,922 posts edited from ~ 72,292 prior to this script run. But that's just links to other SE sites, the bulk of editing is still ahead.
Q: Who's to blame?! (aka newer chat message appears before older chat messsage)

Shadow WizardSo, I just saw this in The Tavern: The second message was posted before the first, yet appears after that message. Checking the ID of the messages, the ID of the first (!!/blame) is 5935908, while the ID of the reply is 5935909, so no trick as far as I can see. Also no edits. What black ...

2:13 PM
Going 2 b in the wild again, possibly with reception...
@ShadowWizard nice proof btw
It's obviously me...
2:20 PM
if you refresh the window does it have it in the proper order?
@Andy nope
@Andy nope
"It's only different in your mind."
Probably different cache servers got different order
Still... bugged
...I guess not.
2:32 PM
Shouldn't a question like this one be automatically blocked? A 1-rep user asking a question that starts with a link and has 1 sentence.
@ShadowWizard It's Shadow Wizard's fault.
@ShadowWizard You doubt me?
2:37 PM
@ShadowWizard Running since 14:30:53 UTC (6 minutes)
Bleurgh, rain.
3:22 PM
@Mithrandir yeah, probably the מלקוש
You love rain?
No, it soaked my bike :/
@Mithrandir bike?? Hope you mean bicycle? ;)
Given that he said "soaked", I'd assume it's a motorbike
(14 y/o on motorbike isn't a good idea..... ;))
yes o_o
3:24 PM
@Bart why? Rain can soak anything.... :D
Although all the kids have illegal electric bikes here... :/
(You have to be 16.)
@ShadowWizard sure, but on a bicycle it's no problem. (Speaking at a Dutch citizen who cycled to school and uni every day, in sun, rain, hail and icy roads)
@Mithrandir yeah, that's risky...
@Bart you are tough
@Bart It's getting a bit rusty....
@Mithrandir might have thinner skin ;)
@Mithrandir oil them well
3:25 PM
@ShadowWizard it's the "normal" thing to do over there. Of course your parents buy you these rain suits, but you don't wear those because it's not cool. :D
@Bart It's different when you're riding it in the rain and when you're here nuking things while it's sitting in the rain outside.
@Bart also, Israel got less than 20 days of rain per year. so we're not really ready for this when it arrives.
Some years we get 0 days of rain in some places.
@ShadowWizard I think we have 20 days of sun in NL, right @rene? :p
3:27 PM
@Bart hehe, complete opposite.
This year think we got more than 20, it was a rainy winter.
so much rain
Better just give up and get soaked every day.... :D
Over here I have a lot of latin American friends and friends from southern Europe. At the first sign of clouds, they go into full winter depression where I think "Hmm, summer" :D
._. Someone fixed a intentional mispelling in an answer.
(and 2 I missed)
4:37 PM
@Bart I like it when people are optimistic ...
I'm a glasses half full kind of glasses
Then again, maybe moderating for a long time has that side effect.
5:29 PM
A potentially interesting poster but hard to read... and the SO logo is outdated.
6:13 PM
oh no, a gender discussion!
Oh no, a danger discussion!
I can read almost all of it, except for Findings...
@Gerry I can interpret it though
If one woman is inserted into Stack Overflow, danger is imminent.
If three are inserted, mission successful.
Or if one woman makes an account, she's putting findings in danger.
But if one woman and two socks make an account, a little kid will gain lots of upvotes
BTW, I wonder what the kid in that meme is doing right now
Watching teletubbies?
6:26 PM
Trolling on reddit?
That is more likely
Visiting school, most likely. The meme is seven years old, and it's about noon in the USA.
Right, so on a smartphone in class.

@Gerry Join us.
Do you have cookies?
@Shog9 can't you fix it?
I doubt it
So that extra profile will exist forever? :/
11:02 PM
Probably gonna take someone who knows our account system really well poking around... Someone like @AdamLear
Your magic tools don't work in Area 51? @Shog
I mean, I can delete it...
I guess that's another reasonable solution
Hopefully it won't break anything...
nope, just fails
@Shog9 what's happening?
I'm on mobile at the moment, but can look into whatever later.
11:06 PM
@AdamLear Nic's got two A51 profiles. See: chat.meta.stackexchange.com/transcript/89?m=5934508#5934508
I should say, two Discuss profiles
one of which isn't linked to anything
(also two se.com profiles, presumably for the same reason)
Nothing urgent.
Ahh okay. Yeah, I'll fix that up later.
Or at least try.
Oh right, I can't delete it because it's a moderator
@Shog9 if the account id is the same, try merging
@AdamLear it's not (the account was previously merged, I think)
should trigger a local-only merge, but you'll also need to flip the diamond off first
11:09 PM
oh yeah, forgot about that
well, I'm happy to look at it later
or as happy as one can be when Area 51 is involved
got it deleted by removing mod status
completely forgot we check for that
thanks for the sanity-check there, @Adam
no problem
