@Shog9 Ah ok, neat, thanks
Ah guess I don't need to update that post it just says "see type tables".

Wait trying that again
Oh no that was right
Anyways, der....
@Gerry data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/672894 although that's not as up to date as shogs data
1-2% of total
Seems like a legit feature
Plus if the % is too high then really it'd mostly just mean that reviewers suck

@Sklivvz shouldn't that be on MSE? ;p
cause I see that being ridiculously useful on sites other than SO too
@JourneymanGeek I don't know how to determine that with certainty.
same angle!
@Sklivvz well its useful for all the tech sites for one
Yes! I meant -- I'm not sure if a feature which is useful for a subset of the sites including SO belongs on meta.se or meta.so.
6:30 AM
ah! It could belong on either, but would get attention from people like me who don't really use SO on SE
throwing it on root access for more eyeballs

@Derpy about?
@JourneymanGeek see this and the following ones

^ UPDATE: the column is there, but it displays wrong info...
long story short: now the Status column on the azure portal "all virtual machines" DevTestLab page once again displays real data instead of hardcoded fake strings
So, now, when you want to check if any of your 20+ virtual machine is still running (== you are still paying) because some dev forgot to shut it down.... you will get real info instead of blatant lies!
Lucky you!
Now, when you want to check if you are still being billed for vm usage the portal will tell you the truth! -_-'

@JNat Feature request: when you join a room, your avatar shouldn't just slide in from the top like any other avatar but instead display the standard "teleport in" Megaman animation.
that'd be pretty neat
... just heard someone talking about "low resolution full HD". Didn't had the courage to inquiry about it.
8:46 AM
Well, I do admit fullHD feels a little low after 1440p and 4k screens
@JourneymanGeek actually, I fear that was something like "800*600 full HD"
A pretty new concept, you may have read of it on some magazines. Was launched together with the new mono-speaker surround audio (or the bi-dimensional 3D TV).
9:03 AM
Oh my
wasn't 1366x768 called HD too?
In addition to being called an abomination...

Apparently many shopping sites call a 800x600 projector as HD?

Is there some problem with imgur hosted images. It keep finding post where picutre links are dead (or at least not displayed to me), despite links pointing to i.stack.imgur.com - so they are probably uploaded using the editor.
It's a miracle - now I tried the links again and the pictures are displayed. Honestly, when I tried them today before, the pictures were not shown to me....
@Martin I'm not really sure about current condition, but imgur's server had a problem recently. So expect random dead image
That should have been "every 6-8 weeks or so".
(and that "planning" post is now 7 months old.)
TIL about the @downvoted Twitter bot. Supports SO, reddit, and youtube.

Is the restriction on posting <=2 links by new users actually useful? The spammers we see seem to be content with 1-2 links, but of course, survivor bias.

Hmm, Stack Overflow claims to know How to Find and Hire Android Developers
yep, lure the fish into the pond with freebies , so when you want a fish ... I mean android developer, you go into android chats, find someone with high reps and currently is unemployed

@JasonC if you claim to have suffered a heat-stroke, where are you? In your Kitchen stove? If it is cold, get out of your freezer.
@rene In my apartment; it's 96F in here with 70% humidity. Plus summer started two days ago very suddenly.
Still reeling.
@JasonC It stopped today (central NY), so expect the same soon in your area
I hope so.
Today it's supposed to get a bit warmer then maybe rain this afternoon.
Lol right, and 65F tomorrow.

4:30 PM
NY weather is so chaotic.
Does anyone have suggestions for questions? I could post them there.
"How would you feel about starting some sort of Stack Overflow ... Academy?"
"Who are you and what have you done with the other 8?"
"Your favorite brand of vodka?"
"If there is one thing you want the community stop doing, what would it be? Why?"
I like that one.
4:36 PM
Note that was a pre-beer suggestion. I might get crazier ideas once I have finished this beer.
"Will there be Documentation on ru.SO?"
Or a separate app, just for ru.SO?
Serious question: are lang-SO sites supported by the new app?
@Gerry - first, there needs to be Documentation on SO...
Q: Tearing Down the Structure of Documentation

Jon EricsonIf you have told us (or privately thought) Documentation isn't working: You are correct. It isn't. Yet. Since early on in the private beta of Documentation, we’ve used a simple, rigid structure: Tags => Topics => Examples + optional sections At the time, users wondered if this was the right s...

There is no requirement of posting one question per answer, so I'm going to bundle them in one post.
4:45 PM
Sudden realization: I never learned the Russian word for "app".
But apparently, it's the same as "application", no neologism or shorter form.
@Gerry нет :(

"What do you drink before posting on Meta?"
@Gerry wat??
Don't tell me you are not doing it.... I already posted three questions.
Hey @Shog9, you remember that MSE post, that was talking about the public dump XML file, and trying to figure out what to do about site renames? Do you remember what post that was? Or something about the title? I can't find it.
A: Data dump, programmers and software engineering

Jason CTurning some of my comments into an answer: My gut says leave it as StackExchange.Programmers forever (especially now that it's becoming clearer to me that the main problem is user confusion, in which case, documentation). Is that mapping expensive / risky for future maintenance on SE's end? One...

5:16 PM
nm found it
@Shog9 Ha, thanks.
I am inclined to accept that internal databases don't get renamed, and the dump (as well as SEDE) reflect that. Doesn't bother me that much.
The reason I was looking is:
So, I have a question. What if, instead of T-SQL, you instead documented a few SE things as part of the initial experiment? E.g. the SEDE schema, the API, the StackExchange JS object. This seems like it would make more sense: You have full control over it, the resources to do it, a user base interested in the topics, and worst case it's still helpful. Plus you get first-hand experience with some of the difficulties. And it's got more of a ... "this is ours" kind of vibe to it, if that makes sense. — Jason C 6 mins ago
(Not to mention the public dumps could use some documentation, this could help with the issues in that thread too by giving that stuff a proper home.) The thing is, nobody really gains anything by redocumenting T-SQL. But documenting SO stuff not only accomplishes the goals of the exercise, but has the bonus of actually adding value in the process, something which, so far, Docs has had a very hard time with. — Jason C 2 mins ago
Seems like it could kill two birds with one stone.
More than two birds, even.
@JasonC I like that idea
5:26 PM
I would love to have example-based docs for the API.
@JasonC why is that two comments and not an answer?
I dunno. I'll make it an answer.
@rene "answering questions in comments", as it seems
I guess it didn't feel like an answer.
Hey that reminds me, is there some secret url to see the markdown source of a comment
It doesn't feel like two comments either
Besides the api
5:28 PM
It's only the API
@Gerry XD
@JasonC if you can edit, the markdown is sent down with the comments; if you can't, it isn't.

@ShadowWizard - So where exactly am I supposed to bring the scotch?
The ghost bar? Midnight? December 31st?
@TravisJ where? Here!
@JasonC so there will be New Documentation soon?
Or Documentation 2?
Okay, but, how do I share it? Do you have a teleporter?
Or a replicator? One of those would be awesome.
@TravisJ of course not. Just a new protocol for transmitting booze over the internet cables.
(booze over internet protocol)
@TravisJ nah, just BTP
It's really simple.
7:06 PM
So it sends out like a bat signal that a private jet sees and comes to hand courier the booze?
@TravisJ that's one way. What I had in mind is the booze trickling through your computer cables.
The last thing I need my dev environment to be is drunk lol
Not to mention most, if not all, of its parts are less than 18 years old so it's forbidden by law.... :D
7:11 PM
I am in the U21 country.
Maybe we could start a booze exchange protocol, where I give booze to a central location here, and someone in your area then gives booze to you.
This would reduce the need for the wires to illegally transport booze.
"bone conduction transducer"... people spend their time on the strangest things
@TravisJ that's modern world for you... people have too much time to spend. ;)
I wish they could lend me some, I feel like I run out every day around midnight and am forced to allow my subconscious to watch all sorts of strange reruns.
7:35 PM
So I may have accidentally meta effected an answer :( I wish people wouldn't always nuke content that is being used as an example, even if it is an example of bad content.
Do you want to un-nuke it?
In particular Jason C.
Not that there is anything wrong with it.
7:48 PM
What do people want to hear from a math department during the summer? Any ideas?
Maybe fun math puzzles? Given: summer tuition is $1,201.00 per credit. If you take a 4-credit calculus course and a 3-credit linear algebra course, how much money will be left at your parents' bank account?
BTW I'm not kidding, it's really 1201 dollars. We really need that one, apparently.
@Gerry at least it isn't 1,195 and buy 2 to get a 50% discount?
No discounts. If you buy 10, it's 12,010.00
8:19 PM
@Gerry - During the summer, from a math department? At a University? Or at a College? At what percent of the summer?
@rene - Luckily I don't think that anyone has actually seen the link yet. Or unluckily. Or maybe just no one cared. One of those.
@TravisJ A university. Present time (academic summer, not astronomic).
@Gerry - So the start of summer? I mean, an end of summer party to coordinate early enrollment of classes would be ideal. As for a beginning of summer party, perhaps something low key, but still worthwhile. Perhaps a group field trip to a meetup for math professionals? There is usually good community building, often free pizza, and some sort of presentation involving math which may or may not be worthwhile.
Well... as in-person activities those are fine. But students aren't here, they are with families or wherever.
8:36 PM
@Gerry - Most meetups use a google hangout account to stream the meeting. That way students in person could be there, and those at home could at least view (if they wanted). However, if no one is present, I would just say let people enjoy summer, or let the students come up with some sort of planned activity if they are really that determined.
Yes, "let people enjoy summer" is what I'm gravitating toward. Will ignore the Facebook nags.
Maybe share funny Math.SE posts once in a while. :)
if(idea.src == "facebook" && idea.type == "nag")
     return false;
@Gerry - Everyone likes a funny post once in a while :)

how do I negate the report ^
Nothing in need of flagging there
You can reply with "notspam", like I did here. If done within 2-minute edit period, the report will be deleted.
If it's old, I probably wouldn't bother.
Better to post something else to make it scroll away...
wow that one is really bad
is there a nuke it and the account now reply option?
10:56 PM
Nearly all of these are replied to in Charcoal HQ before the post appears here. As you can see by clicking "MS" link.
It is confirmed as bad, and the author blacklisted.
