Rob
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Yes, boots are less stable than gloves. youtu.be/suHOLFhbwsM?t=90
 
4:36 AM
Oh, it's already back online, time to nuke more spammers...
 
 
5 hours later…
9:09 AM
dodging @Journeyman's pointy stick
 
Rob
Take the stick
 
And running straight into mine? :P
 
@Tinkeringbell parrot carrying a stick, while having sharp beak? That's redundant! :D
@Rob no spare clothes
 
sharp sticks are ideal for perching :D
 
@Tinkeringbell not if they're vertical... ;)
 
9:12 AM
Birds and parrots are surprisingly acrobatic ;)
 
9:28 AM
o/
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 tool use!
 
9:44 AM
I'm evolving :D
 
@Tinkeringbell Entered the stone age
 
@Luuklag I don't think sticks count as stone though...
 
Neolithic age then ;)
 
.... you're not seriously that disappointing, are you? :P
 
No, google is
 
9:55 AM
I think there's no real archaeological name for a period marked by 'pointed stick use', as that's something even monkeys do...
It's likely reasonable to assume that the last common ancestor of both humans and apes could do that trick too ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell Oh yeah, that's Krog. Everybody knows him. He went around poking monkeys with his stick until they evolved.
 
@VLAZ XD... the point is... pointed sticks generally don't last. That's why most of archaeology starts with stone age: Stone tools are some of the first 'human made' things that survived for long enough to be studied. Digging up hominids is a grey zone, it's kinda multidisciplinary between paleontology and sometimes archaeology (to see if there were artifacts).
I would rejoice if some day there was a fossilized pointy stick found though!
 
10:15 AM
lol
actually its less the pointyness than that its modified, pulled off side-branches....
/me throws sticks and stones @Luuklag
 
Sticks and stones may break my bones...
 
@Tinkeringbell maybe @Luuklag means carved sticks, sharpened with knife, that's something monkeys are not doing. :D
Just a tree branch isn't really a stick, just a branch. Didn't check though. ;)
So making knife, using it to sharpen a tree branch into a better weapon... that's evolving. :P
> Your parcel is in transit

> Your parcel is due for delivery Sun 10th October.
Yay!
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Does it need to come from all the way across the world?
Or is israeli post just slow?
 
@Luuklag from UK, but through the ocean, so it's slow. It's fine, from China expected arrival time is three weeks.
 
10:23 AM
@VLAZ prove he can make salad and I'll take my words back. :D
 
It cannot - no free hands.
 
Rob
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Even vertical:
 
Rob
10:41 AM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 It starts with sticks, then they go on to damaging police computers, theft of evidence from a crime scene, finally TCM: dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4650416/…
 
@Rob Too green though.
 
@Tinkeringbell It's just not ripe, yet. Give it some time.

Hah. Best reply I've seen so far ;)
 
11:18 AM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Could be slower. I think for us delivery time from the UK would be 2-3 days usually
 
@Rob that's not perching though.
@Rob crows, Tink isn't a crow. :D
@Tinkeringbell it also hints you're ripe. Dunno if it's compliment or not, for you. :P
 
Just a few more years and I'll start to rot ;)
 
lol
@Luuklag via the sea?
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 probably by train or air
 
@Luuklag ohh lol thought you meant delivery time for USA..... hehe
of course for you it would be faster, inside Europe. ;)
 
11:48 AM
@Rob you forgot another case, coffee delivery quadcopters:
 
12:21 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 still Tink doesn't feel like a Red Delicious. The Granny Smith seems more appropriate.
Trust me, the red color is just paint for disguising purposes.
 
we should wait for rain, if the color washes out we will know.
 
Or, Tink might get so mad the red will overflow and become green.
RGB --> 255, 0, 0 is Red. However if the R overflow over 255, it might move to the G instead. No? ;)
 
usually it becomes alpha
and since alpha is already 255, it also overflows
 
@JohnDvorak every pack needs Alpha leader.
Wonder if the term applies only for males, or can there be female Alpha?
 
12:37 PM
Elephants have matriarchs?
 
@Tinkeringbell looks like it!
> The matriarch mother (who is often the oldest and largest female) is the bedrock of the elephant family and responsible for defending and looking out for each family member. And, just like our mothers, they impart a treasure trove of knowledge they have gained from their long lives
 
See, I knew being a couch potato would pay off someday XD
 
Your knowledge is vast!
Now if only you could use this to make money.... :D
 
making money is illegal.
 
12:48 PM
Ah, that's the easy first question
 
For $100, nice to have.
 
I really dislike this show, participants would get a questions like "What do people usually wear on their feet" with choices a.) hats b.) bra's, c.) underwear or d.) socks.
 
@Tinkeringbell e) none of the above
:P
 
And then instead of just saying 'd'... they go like ... well I know it's not a... I've also never worn b, that's for females only, right? .... and I also don't think it's c soo... I'll play for d.
And then the presenter goes 'Are you sure, do you want to play for d'... the participant does the whole reasoning again, and then it's time for commercial break, stay tuned to find out if it was really socks!
 
I liked only the original show, 20-30 years ago, before it was turned into just another trash reality show.
 
12:50 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 I said usually :P
 
@Tinkeringbell feed?
 
@JourneymanGeek See, now don't ever try to claim dyslexia again :P
 
@JourneymanGeek guess she means in the selfie pictures they upload on their feed.
oh lol
Now it makes sense but isn't funny. :P
 
I am no fun XD
 
boo hoo
squeezing fun out of @M.A.R. and injects it into @Tink
 
12:53 PM
Eeewl.
cooties and stuff!
 
running away before she explodes
lol
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 You forgot to add Chemical X
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Meh, no worries. Haven't gotten that fat yet :D
 
.... Powerpuff Tinkeringbell... now that would be interesting.
 
@SPArcheon can't, poor M.A.R won't survive without it.
@Tinkeringbell no no, not fat. The internal reaction of your inner core and too much fun. :D
 
12:57 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Meh. My liver still works, as do my kidneys. I can probably just process it.
 
@Tinkeringbell hmm, if it's kind of poison then yeah, liver should handle it.
But... if I'll paint it in red...
 
You do know that conspiring to poison mods is generally frowned upon? :P
 
I'm just giving injection of red painted fun! :D
 
1:14 PM
Well I'm declining :P
 
I have a reputation to maintain...
 
@Tinkeringbell Over 30000 reputations to maintain, and that's just on MSE :P
 
Ah yes.... meet all my other personalities XD
 
@Tinkeringbell you’re a moderator, you don’t really need reputation :P
 
1:28 PM
Not anymore no. But you don't generally become a moderator without some XD
 
@Tinkeringbell can do even better, be a CM. ;)
(without rep)
 
Heh. Yeah, that's a possibility too, employees can get moderator rights.
Not one I need though :P
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 eh, if you do it right, you get lots :D
 
Out of curiosity, how often does the badge count here update, because Tinkeringbell has had a badge on CS50 for nearly two months, but it doesn’t mention it in her network profile.
 
Isn't CS50 technically still in private beta? That might explain it maybe?
@EkadhSingh-ReinstateMonica Reported bug by Glorfindel :P
 
1:43 PM
I think CS50 is a wierdly special case
and maybe the 200 rep thing
 
@JourneymanGeek what 200 rep thing? I’m guessing it’s not reduced ads or association bonus, so what do you mean?
 
uhh, I for some reason thought accounts don't really count in the network profile until you hit 200 rep
haven't really looked at it lately
 
That's for network wide rep, it only counts sites with 200 or more rep
 
@JourneymanGeek only global flair, rep leagues, and network rep graph exclude accounts with less than 200.
 
2:04 PM
19 messages moved to Chimney
 
2:16 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Next time just use N
 
@Luuklag nah wanted to see it's working, for some reason I'm never sure it goes through :/
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Click the MS link on the report, you can check there
 
@Luuklag click?! That's.... that's.... requires extra action from my side... clicking TV remote control instead
:P
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 sorry for the no reply, I am just busy at watching a non-SE dumpfire for once....
 
@SPArcheon heh. Where?
 
2:29 PM
But you know... this feels like a rerun.
I mean... nothing new...
Same errors we did....
Zero communication after a long chain of issues until EXPLOSION.
 
@SPArcheon I... don't understand.
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 you still need to click on stack exchange? You should just download this userscript instead :P
 
@SPArcheon you mean only alternative "This is fine" meme?
Thought you mean actual drama somewhere.
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 That's tpu-, BTW. See chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/59258637#59258637
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Just the top selling gacha game in the last year.. that managed to make his player base so angry in the last month that they organized a strike yesterday and managed to drop game review from 4.8 to 1.8 in a few hours.
and now they are laughing stock on many online gaming sites
 
2:33 PM
@SPArcheon ohh, OK.
@EkadhSingh-ReinstateMonica I'll just install a chip
 
@SPArcheon that chat has a horrible UI
 
@Luuklag Sci&Fi one?
 
@SPArcheon yup
 
@Luuklag Well, I think I should be glad then. Usually users stumbling on that room complain for the amount of ponies.
 
@SPArcheon he didn't join the room though ;)
 
2:42 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 I just had a look at the log ;)
 
🚻
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 that is enough for now....
you didn't notice how Andras is slowly turning into a pony?
 
@Feeds automate away your boring oneboxes
 
or just don't have meetings
meetings are useless
waste of time
 
3:27 PM
@SPArcheon might be only a show
@KevinB new icon? Or only temp?
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 If it works to give you a little scare, fine for me :P
 
3:44 PM
 
Rob
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 When we click on that image it's twice the size of a thumbnail, it's so fuzzy; is that a flying rabbit?
 
4:03 PM
@SPArcheon *Clazmonian Sow
 
The Pigasus Award is the name of an annual tongue-in-cheek award that was presented by noted skeptic James Randi. The award seeks to expose parapsychological, paranormal or psychic frauds that Randi had noted over the previous year. Randi usually made his announcements of the awards from the previous year on April 1 (April Fools' Day). == History == The award was originally called the Uri trophy, after Uri Geller, and was first announced in the appendix of Randi's book Flim-Flam!. The 1982 edition lists the award's "recipients" in 1979, 1980 and 1981. In Flim-Flam!, Randi states: The tr...

Scott, My own little world.

Great "About".
 
4:24 PM
@Rob Ooooold joke though :)
 
5:02 PM
@Tinkeringbell stolen from the best. Sir Pterry Prachett
 
Don't know that one...
 
@JourneymanGeek Since you know... Could you fix @ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 name?
He spelt Wizzard wrong.
 
@SPArcheon I thought it was WiZzZard ;)
 
@SPArcheon hmm... No
 
@Rob it's a raven attacking a pizza delivery.
@Luuklag :D
@SPArcheon Shadow The Pony Wizard?
 
5:17 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 for once, it has nothing to do with ponies.
 
@Mithical saw there was a Bnei Akiva bus crash, hope everyone you know are fine?
 
It is just that the correct spelling for Wizzard should be used
 
@SPArcheon I know, but your real wish is for me to become pony. ;)
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 I think that most agree that Sunburst is indeed a reference to Rincewind
 
@SPArcheon I love Rincewind. Second only to Fizban.
Third is Raistlin, though not his evil version.
Though thinking about it, Fizban isn't technically a wizard.
Do deities in D&D have class? Pretty sure they don't. :D
 
5:29 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Technically, Fizban is also completely unrelated to Zifnab...
 
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 yes
You freaked me out for a second, because I hadn't heard anything and my sister was on a B'nei Akiva bus heading back from that Sukkot hike, and I'm on base and hadn't heard from her.

Whizzard of Ow is an animated short film that was released on November 1, 2003. It was directed by Bret Haaland. It stars Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, and is the first short of these characters produced after the death of Chuck Jones. The film was included in the DVD release of Looney Tunes: Back in Action as a special feature. The animation was produced by Rough Draft Studios. == Plot == The short begins with a magical battle between two different stereotypes of sorcerers (a short Gandalf-like wizard that holds a large book of magic in one hand and a staff in the other, and a tall Doctor...
 
@Mithical so the "yes" means you checked up on her and she's fine?
@SPArcheon two different dimensions
 
5:51 PM
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 precisely
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 I believe in 3.5 they do.
 
 
2 hours later…
7:49 PM
@Mithical oh. Well, didn't play that one.
@Mithical glad to hear!
 
8:06 PM
Is there a nice way to tell a poster to stop rolling back people's edits bringing their question into asking guidelines?
 
no, that's why mods do it
 
sounds good then
It's closed now anyway... just annoying to get into an edit war with someone you're helping
 
could certainly say something without being rude, but, in the end, an upset user is gonna be upset anyway
 
I'm blunt
so probably best to not
 
Just flag it
We will review and lock if needed
 
8:10 PM
done
I expect the flag to get declined because it's already closed dupe, but it wont' roomba
 
@Mgetz users can still edit closed questions, so it's not very relevant. Flag shouldn't be declined, at least not based on that.
Anyway it happened to me more than once over the years, usually I posted comment like "Please stop rolling back useful edits", and if this didn't help and OP still did it, just downvote, and move on. (Well, might have left some snarky comments on my way out, but not recently, learned it's pointless.)
 
i don't typically stick around to notice the rollback
