hey everyone, is there a post on the limit of GIF? I figured out it must be something like 2 Mb or less, cant confirm it anywhere..
@MeNoTalk same as imgur, so 2mb
@Braiam thanks, I actually never knew that imgur has a limit of 2mb, I guess I never tried to upload a larger image..

I've made 5 stink apps that've made me 4 bucks, including the first app that lets you draw ASCII art
I wonder why they stink :P
So... I request ideas at the local tavern
I dont care if people steal them
You left the milk out and it spoiled.
That's where the stink always comes from.
I was being metaphorical/idiomatical/is that a word?
@TheWobuffett Create an Earth Science account!
I think it's that I don't understand the iOS UI much
Then I can leave your milk out.

It's a pretty awesome word, if it's anything.

Mods can also come into your house at night and leave your milk out. Some mod abilities aren't talked about much.
^ That, @TheWobuffett.
Well, when someone gets my app what makes then delete it?
... your spoiled milk?
From ads
The first one is from the past 7 days
2nd from the past year
Hmm... can iPhones intercept smells and convert them into data types?
"Is your milk spoiled" app :P
Anyway, I wish to be a millionare. Share your ideas.
I'll cut in 0% if you want
I wish an app like Instagram would suddenly be taken off the app store

Anybody think should be synonymed to ?
6:30 AM
@bjb568 Any reason why you think it should?
@Stijn Because both tags mean the same thing?
@bjb568 We have and , should we make those synonyms too? is for questions specific to HTML 5, from new tags like <header> to stuff like <canvas>.
@Stijn C is a strictly defined language. HTML is not. HTML doesn't have versions, it only has fancy icons. Browser support is all over the place.
@bjb568 The tag excerpt even explains this:
> HTML5 (Hyper Text Markup Language, version 5) is an umbrella term for recent web technologies. It is also the latest iteration of HTML Recommendation planned for 2014, introducing new elements and APIs.
Which is a useless metatag.

I can't read the posts but I can guess what they're about. CWs are weird, such questions are normally off-topic unless enough people put work into it. Imho SE should either provide a proper wiki system or get rid of the current system.
Starting a canonical question is a coinflip really.
Myeah, all Wikis we have are somewhat ... meh. But then to find an alternative that actually works ... not trivial.
@ShadowWizard Sure, I don't think that question becomes handy / practical but the process should really be close to what I describe in an meta post on a similar issue.
8:06 AM
Do we have a language barrier there somewhere?
I think so....
At least between the rest of the world and myself.
There is a hint of a question in there, but I have no clue how to drag it out of that one.

Could you please tell me why because I didn't find any reason here ...
... or in Help Center.

Many thanks!

Amazing, isn't it? ^
Cool you have friends!

I suppose you now stop deleting questions from innocent new users?
@rene lol no. I actually replied to him. :)
@ShadowWizard so much more polite than the email I get from users

anyway, could the Gear Second steam/vulcanization effect be considered glowing?

@3ventic oh, you could have said you want some repz! :D
I'm not that concerned about repz :D
It's just that I knew the answer and the dupe didn't match it
I tried looking for a dupe though
didn't find one
@3ventic fair enough!
@3ventic how about this one? Looks like a dupe to me... no?

I want to find if there's a dupe of a new MSO post

@Stijn yeah, they have lots of respect to Stack Overflow and send their best bots to crawl it.
@SPArchaeologist thats shadow as cartoon character, but as you see, real picture is the one that stijn posted

Can't we blame python?
@rene it will be like blaming the bullet for missing the target :D
@ShadowWizard rather, it would be blaming the gun
@JanDvorak hmm... guess you're right, gun is the language and code is the bullet?
1:01 PM
code is the shooter
the bullet would be the runtime environment.
@DroidDev Evil Genius. That would be a nice title to add to my business card.
@JanDvorak ಠ_ಠ
@JanDvorak no, I think the programmer is the shooter :)
@SPArchaeologist I was wondering of various descriptions, you might give, if somebody asked the reason for writing that.
@DroidDev Well, for one I am actively working for expanding Skyn SharePoint grasp on humanity.

@hichris I'm missing something or isn't better just to have ignore case in the regex options?

OK, just wrote a furious email to the team. Now I feel so much better! :P
now now.... what to do while I install sp1? based on the current progress bar speed I have about 2 days free....
@SPArchaeologist buy new computer with stronger CPU? ;)

@ShadowWizard Don't make me use Fus Ro Yay ^_^
@SPArchaeologist I dare you! :D
@SPArchaeologist we use the mighty power of share point, please expand its grasp on shadows for this time
Ye asked.
2:26 PM
@DroidDev It's not so simple. If you want the rite to be successful you need to sacrifice a black roster on a new Moon() night, all while chanting the appropriate mantra from the official SharePoint developer companion handbook
@SPArchaeologist can't FUS RO YAY help us with the task of official SharePoint developer companion handbook. I guess shadows must be afraid of moon. So, that can be easy, we can write a class in java to create a black roster and then wait for new Moon().
AND WHAT TO DO NOW..... my senior asked me to push a code to git after changes and I tried to push, but NO, He only gave me read access (accidentally) and now he is not in the company and might come..... I don't know when. I already wait for 50 minutes and now I am frustrated.
2:42 PM
@DroidDev Nope, for all magical hex and stuff, you should ask Twilight.
@DroidDev Ps: that is a big relief for me. We just had to use a temp visual studio online free account to store source code.... When they created our dev machine on Azure, they didn't consider the need to be able to access corporate TFS from there....
On the plus side: No new bugs can be introduced now...
3:16 PM
...and I was wondering why the language pack takes so long to install.
WHY a german pack does install "Microsoft Server Proof (Russian) 2013"??
@SPArchaeologist It's the letter e. It appears so often. Slows does the install.
3:36 PM
@SPArchaeologist because it is part of that SKU...
@rene but whyyy? German != Russian. Why does it need the proofing tools??
It doesn't need them, the setup team didn't bother separate them out as different options.
3:53 PM
@rene I can figure what they where thinking: "Should we lose OUR time to split them or make all devs around the globe lose THEIR time installing some unasked gibberish?"
@SPArchaeologist How often do you install it?
Yeah, that basically is it. I try to stay away from localized crap, mostly using en-us versions.
@SPArchaeologist If I'm informed correctly the localization teams only deliver the translated resource files. No dev is involved in the creating of those language packs, it's all done automagically...
@ShadowWizard still the editor stats, not reviewer..
It smells like such a common issue that I want to find a dupe too :|

"Stack Overflow has no quality control mechanism. Period." - nonsense. That's what downvotes are for. And they seem to work pretty fine to regulate answers. — Jan Dvorak 1 min ago
Hi folks!, @BillMote "code only answer" is not a good idea here. "we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about programming." You should add some explanation in few words what your code do and how it will solve the OP problem so that it would be good for future readers. — TGMCians 2 mins ago

How to win undeserved reputation when you are at rep 1. a) Post a terrible question, which will attract downvotes and close votes. Don't worry, you can't go lower than 1. b) Once closed, add just enough code to satisfy those who don't actually know anything about the technology at stake. c) Sit and enjoy the reopen votes and the pity upvotes on a question that has obviously been unjustly downvoted. The upvotes will increase your rep.

@hichris123 you clone Stack Overflow?

@rene oh, that's level 12 spell. I have only up to level 9, sorry!
@hichris123 what will you do with those goodies?
@ShadowWizard I guess I'm doomed in that case...
@ShadowWizard Not sure yet. Hopefully look for hidden spam & NAA's. Also maybe some analytics, and running whatever queries @rene wants. ;)
9:12 PM
@rene Is the issue with smbclient's own config or something more general?
I ran the smbclient as root and mounted the nas, created a symlink to that mount in the data directory of mysql but now mysql gives a err:13 (no write permission) on that directory
and the mysql user does have permission at the filesystem (at least that is what it looks like)
Can you su to the mysql user and poke the filesystem to see what you get?
hold on
@rene I'm not sure about your configuration but maybe in Unix & Linux chat they can help, maybe ask what logs you should look at (my bets are in /var/log/samba and maybe auth.log)
OK, well it looks like the mysql user doesn't have that write permission afterall...
Let me gather some evidence...
9:20 PM
@hichris123 :
import re
p = re.compile(ur'love', re.IGNORECASE)
test_str = u"love\nLove\nlOve\n"

re.findAll(p, test_str)
9:50 PM
@Braiam strangely enough if I su mysql I can write that to that symlink. It looks more like a mysql permission issue. The auth and samba logs are near empty.
