1:10 PM
o_O Did I chase anyone away from here? I am not toxic :)
Takes more to chase me away!
(e.g. bad jokes, remember? ;))
@ShadowTheBurningWizard I was almost sure about that ;)
That you? ^
SO cute.
Huh no
I was a bloody quake when I was a kid
That kid took your cake? @M.A.R
@It'sOver quake?
@πάνταῥεῖ If I lick you will I die?
If yes, then you're toxic.
1:15 PM
@Mithical just get a kick for the lick
If you wanna lick people to find that out, we have issues we need to resolve before that
@ShadowTheBurningWizard licks ice cream cone
Well, Smokey is a licker
@Mithical Nice offer ;). But no and no.
1:16 PM
@SmokeDetector Good to know they didn't fire you
@It'sOver I was cute as a kid, with blonde hair. Both features gone by now. :D
@Mithical Expect overdoses of coffee is all I can tell regarding toxicity.
@ShadowTheBurningWizard brews a cup of chamomile tea for @Cole
Does hair become less blond as you grow up, or did you join in professor ranks?
1:18 PM
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Can I beg for coffee instead?
@It'sOver ?
!!/coffee ColeValley
@ShadowTheBurningWizard brews a cup of jQuery for @ColeValley
Your Wish is My Smokey's Command!
@ShadowTheBurningWizard The latter is a euphemism for going bald.
@It'sOver Well, it becomes darker and even grey after a while :P
1:19 PM
Grey hair is cool.
@It'sOver LOL... no! Still has lots of hair, just not blonde at all. :D
Dark brown.
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Murky buckets... I may wake up soon.
@ColeValleyGirl good! ;)
@It'sOver Mostly dark blonde hair and a grey beard is even cooler.
!!/icecream for @Cole
1:21 PM
@Sha's bot circus :D
@It's when your Over will be over?
@πάνταῥεῖ Den has it from time to time, yeah...
@ShadowTheBurningWizard It's cold enough here this morning without icecream, I'm afraid. At least for me, but I'm a fragile flower.
@ShadowTheBurningWizard In a month or maybe more, why?
@ColeValleyGirl you're... what?! flagging as @rene sock
Anything under 18°C is freezing.
1:22 PM
@It'sOver need to know :D
@Mithical weren't you born in USA where it's much colder?
Rene is a licensed flower but is he fragile.
I lived in South Florida.
@It'sOver Rene is, rene isn't.
@Mithical ohhhhh
giving a jacket to @Mith
@ShadowTheBurningWizard They wear cargo pants and the ventilation system allows for too much internal wind
Sorry Mith
hmm... knowing what @Mithical wearing is nice!
1:25 PM
4 degrees C here -- someone will tell me it's positively balmy compared to where they are, but I can't breath when the cold air gets in my lungs and I have poor circulation (cardiac failure) so everything at the periphery turns blue. Any of you who haven't already done it, don't get old :))
Don't even get middle-aged (assuming 60 is the new 40, as I have been told).
@ColeValleyGirl Oy.
@ColeValleyGirl ouch.... sorry to hear! Can't you stay at home with heat turn on?
@ShadowTheBurningWizard at the moment I'm wearing two hoodies
1:26 PM
Nah just kidding
In ten minutes I'll be wearing lycra :p
@Mithical going to dance?
What do you like more? Seeing question was volontarily removed by it's author or question was removed for reasons of moderation (unless you have 10k+ anywhere)?
@ShadowTheBurningWizard I have to venture out occasionally, but I'm warm enough right now in my home office (large radiator with two cats draped over it, small room)
Actually, for some reason, I feel colder when it's 4 degrees than -4.
I hate 4 degrees.
1:27 PM
@Mithical TMI I suspect.
@ColeValleyGirl glad to hear... stay warm!
@It'sOver and -40?
Nah that's warm
@ShadowTheBurningWizard No, cycling.
I guess when it's 4 degrees the body can't decide if it's hot or cold, and we can't decide how warm home should be
I bet if there was any statistical analysis performed more people would be catching colds at 4 degrees than -4.
Below, like, -6, it's definitely cold though
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Your wish (when I have carefully considered it and checked it against local laws, by-laws, policies, ToCs and SE edicts handed down unwillingly by CMs) is (potentially, if not found in breach of my own principles) my command.
1:31 PM
CoC. What about the CoC.
@It'sOver My bad.
Should have included CoC and the moderator agreement.
Moderator agreements are overrated
@It'sOver Thy shouldn't publish such opinions.
@ColeValleyGirl I take it you're nowhere near the global north?
I have a coworker that gets really strong itches whenever he gets cold, that's apparently a chronic condition
@ColeValleyGirl :-D
1:40 PM
@Magisch South-west UK. Nearer to global north than at least half the globe. But we have the Gulf Stream to keep us temperate (at least for now).
@Mithical in the rain??
Winter has been brutally mild here
14C last week
in the midst of january
@ShadowTheBurningWizard aye
@Mithical nice.... just try not to get שפעת, will ya? ;)
Yeah always + C° degrees here also, at least daytime. There were - degrees at night.
1:42 PM
@ColeValleyGirl the mod agreement hasn’t changed in... ever? We’re in the middle of updating it.
That's a good sign... I hope.
@Catija I am curious how my account looks in the sense of this.
Only 6 CM's now... @Catija hope you don't plan to leave? :/
SE lost 8 CM's in... less than a year? There used to be 14.
checking revisions
hmm... well there were 12 at Apr 15 '19 at 1:26 when Cesar joined.
So.... half lost in 9 months.
@πάνταῥεῖ Why would your account be affected by the moderator agreement? Did you win an election while I wasn't looking?
@Catija I know. I've agreed to it twice with some years in between (2012-2014, 2019 onwards) so I'm living proof the reinstatement process can work (even though I deleted my account on the relevant site and recreated it when my health improved). I await the new iteration and suspect I will be able to live with it. (Except, don't expect me to sacrifice cats when the moon is full. I only have two, and they're very opinionated and more likely to sacrifice me).
1:48 PM
@Mithical ready for the ride already?
@CodyGray No. That was probably a silly question.
Guess he tried to ask if his suspension will be re-considered.
@CodyGray I wanted to know about what moderators exagtly agree about regarding specific accouts like mine (and it's history).
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Not really. animuson and Grace Note were effectively part of the Support Team when I was hired, 18 months ago.
@Catija so the actual CM team was smaller than what it was listed for long time... :/
1:52 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ I think it's very unfortunate that we have to keep suspending you. :-)
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Yeah. In May we lost Abby to engineering and Tim’s role is more separate, too.
Anyway.... I consider donating to Shog... he totally deserves it, but not sure he really needs it. Thoughts, anyone?
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Did you read Jon Ericson's blog post yet, like you were told to earlier? :-p From the way Jon phrased it, it hints pretty strongly that Shog could put the money to good use.
@Catija but you're now 6, right?
@CodyGray I read it... quickly. Didn't see that part, I guess.
@ShadowTheBurningWizard There’s things I won’t divulge for him but I’d say the need is there, yes.
1:54 PM
> I don’t need [a GoFundMe page](https://www.gofundme.com/f/thanking-josh-heyer-for-shaping-stack-overflow).
- Jon Ericson
@Catija thanks. Now I need to think how much I can spend without getting into trouble with wife.... ;)
It was quite clever how he phrased it. I appreciated it.
@CodyGray he said it? Where?
Maybe the implication wasn't as clear to others as it was to me.
See quote above, @ShadowTheBurningWizard
@CodyGray oh, it's from Jon's blog? Nice. :)
1:56 PM
Blah, chat formatting
@ShadowTheBurningWizard including managers, yeah.
So small.... :(
@πάνταῥεῖ - don't.
buh.... can't pay with PayPal
@Catija Let's see, with 174 sites, that's... (doing math) .... 29 sites per CM.
Good thing you don't sleep.
It's not like there was ever a CM per-site
Har har.
1:59 PM
That sound...
The CMs used to be designated to specific sites. Now we all manage all the sites but we do different tasks... for example, JNat does elections.
@Catija ouch
Don't envy him
Grace still responsible for the Community Ads?
Nope JNat.
So what Grace is doing?
Don’t know. He’s on support team... so I think they’re the ones handling support requests
I talk to animuson infrequently. Grace less.
2:03 PM
omg... no idea how she copes.
I won't survive a day in this.
I wish Grace will be here.... think last time he used chat was.... years back.
You don't want to handle a hundreds-long backlog of "Why was my question closed/downvoted/unanswered/purple?"
@CodyGray now spiced with "you're evil, burn in hell!1!!" messages, for sure... yeah. :(
I think you have it mixed up. It's us moderators and close-voters who are evil, not the support team.
Depending on your definitions... everyone is evil ;)
@CodyGray yeah... and those SO mods are the absolute worst!!! Amirite??? 🤣
2:09 PM
@Catija Absolutely!
There's a complaint on our Meta about us hot off the presses.
@CodyGray too hot (¬‿¬ )
50 mins ago, by It's Over
2:27 PM
@CodyGray yeah, the purple ones are really bad ... wait ...
@rene Don't look now, but you just admitted to actually reading my posts.
Is that bad?
Haven't heard anyone else ever admit that. Could be dangerous. I say some crazy stuff.
I've not gotten purple yet :D
Honest and direct, yes. Crazy? Not more crazy then myself, so works for me.
Oh, I was so hoping the BeerSlider was about actual beer and sliding. Disappointed.
2:36 PM
How do you know it's not?
A jQuery plugin that dispenses beer is exactly what we need.
Q: Beer in my terminal: HOW?

Michael JohnstonBrew puts a picture of a tiny beer in my terminal?!?! How does it do this? I don't even. But I need to know, because all of my future command line applications must also put tiny pictures in their output.

jQuery gets you drunk without the alcohol
Don't beer and slide when you can smoke and fly instead ;D
3:26 PM
3:37 PM
dangit i'm ill
Just don't get stuck in the sky
As long as you're below 100km, you'll get down eventually, one way or another
4:11 PM
@djsmiley2kindarkness Liquids and sleep
we were at the farm park
there was a disco thing on for the kids, so I sat down, and fell asleep there lol
4:47 PM
@djsmiley2kindarkness illy?
5:01 PM
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Could you please close meta.stackexchange.com/questions/342539/… as a duplicate of the bounty FAQ and remove the other target? I voted it as a duplicate, but voted for the wrong target by mistake (click sniping).

4 messages moved to Chimney
@ShadowTheBurningWizard lol

> "...we will march through the fire... we will run through fire... as the flames get higher..."
> If it takes these dark clouds
To see how the sun can shine
If it takes these deep cuts
To know what it means to be fine
If it takes all I got, to get up and walk again
I know I'm better off inside my broken heart
> Not all that glitters is gold
Certain complexes of other compounds have distinctive golden shines
> "...the love for everyone... always on the run... the fire in our eyes... the passion never dies... we're the chosen ones... the children of the sun."
4 messages moved to Chimney
> They don't, they don't know you.
They don't care about the rain you're going through.
No one, no one sees you.
No one hears you screaming out your silent truth.
Don't feel chanceless!
Have you been afraid to fall apart from who, who you are?
@Mithical I know that band
7:13 PM
of course you do anyone who doesn't is missing out :P
I have a whole playlist labeled "2 steps from hell" although children of the sun is from thomas himself
Well being chosen ones is overrated
And baloney
Other than that, OK
Even if I love Two Steps from Hell
Anyway, I'd be interested in people's thoughts on that voting proposal even outside of a Codidact implementation.
Sound nice, but... I wonder what the effects would be of people being able to just press a 'is unclear' button. Without pointing out what is unclear, you're basically no further than a downvote without comment. It's not very specific guidance...
True, but if you want to provide in-depth guidance that's really more the realm of a comment in any case. That someone thought it was unclear is more helpful than just a downvote.
7:23 PM
Perhaps. You can't know what would happen without trying... I do wonder if it might influence the willingness to leave a comment on top of it.
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Things could be worse:
our small office dog is very very uninterested in meat
but very interested in veggies
8:16 PM
> "...I been telling everyone I'm fine... but I feel like I lost my mind... am I the only one...?"
8:26 PM
I personally prefer "Impossible" - youtube.com/watch?v=6qTghUgMOeY
3 hours later…
11:45 PM
@Magisch lol. Due to a quirk of history, Ash eats a lot of mashed peas
Also loves cooked carrots
might also be due to taste
oh, you said eats, not likes
He only eats baby peas 😁
the monster
So likes is accurate
