@GnomeSlice Lemme guess: some random buzzword?
 
It appears to be a type of music.
I just downloaded a bunch of it to check out.
Ergh, wikiwand y u steal links
Vaporwave is a musical genre that emerged in the early 2010s from indie dance genres such as seapunk or chillwave, and, more broadly, electronic dance music. Although there is much diversity and ambiguity in its attitude and message, vaporwave often serves as both a critique and parody of consumerist society, '80s yuppie culture, and New Age music, while sonically and aesthetically showcasing a curious fascination with their nostalgic artifacts. == Style and origins == Vaporwave was first characterized by its heavy use of samples from '80s and '90s music, typically lounge, smooth jazz or Muzak...
 
huh

Yeah, thanks, that's all I need to know. So, I will rather not answer questions if the first google hit would answer it. — Braiam 8 secs ago

oh so melodramatic

meh, research is part of the quality of any site, if we don't ask people for effort trying to solve their problems you will tire out the experts that answers questions (or worse, bore them to tears)
and is more worrying that SE users seems to reward that behavior
btw @Shog9, when does the SE team intervene in how sites fare about? only egregious matters?

Be quiet, headless chat-bot. Everyones trying to sleep.
 
@bjb568 now that I realized, that question is terrible...
 
Funny how little people vote on SO.
 
1:53 AM

@hichris123 I'm a tree...
 
@J.Musser Trees sleep too!
 
@hichris123 Not in bed.
 
@J.Musser meh, who says that a bed isn't where you're... planted? Living?
(what noun describes where you are, anyway?)
 
@hichris123 earth
soil
@hichris123 Weren't you on here before I went to work this morning?
 
1:58 AM
... maybe?
I was on before I went to school.
 
@hichris123 So you should be tired.
What are you studying for?
 
@J.Musser I'm in high school.
Right now, I'm studying for... absolutely nothing.
All my homework for tomorrow is done.
 
@hichris123 Oh wow. I assumed you were older.
@hichris123 Awesome.
 
@J.Musser Thanks. :)
I like to think I'm mature for my age... but who knows. I'm still a teen. ;P
@J.Musser Yup. Which included world history reading + reading in Julius Casear.
 
2:03 AM
@AndrewT. CV!
 
@hichris123 Definitely mature... Chatting with a tree. I'll bet you only do that online.
@hichris123 World history is important.
 
@J.Musser Yep. Only on the internet... do I get to talk with trees.
:D
@J.Musser Important, sure. Annoying to read... that too. :P (it's incredibly verbose... so it's like anything you ever needed and will never need to know about some civilization)
 
@hichris123 You can chat with trees whenever you want, but you will only get responses online.
 
Intertubes are the only things that work with trees.
 
@hichris123 I like knowing things.
@bjb568 Chainsaws... OOPS! did I just say that out loud?!
 
2:06 AM
@bjb568 don't have rep for that, but flagged already
 
@hichris123 If you can call it civilization...
 
lol
@J.Musser hehe. We're talking about Greece and Rome right now.
 
Greece drips from Turkey onto China, while the Hungary people watch.

sorry
 
I'm... not quite sure how to interpret that. ;)
 
Pick up a roast turkey, and grease drips out onto the china platter, while the hungry people watch.
Very childish, therefore "sorry".
@hichris123 If you want to impress people, just reverse the digits of your age.
 
2:17 AM
@J.Musser Well, that would kinda work, though I'd probably be around the age of people in here...
 
@hichris123 91 is the best.
 
@J.Musser uh, I'm having a 'duh' moment. I don't know how I didn't get that.
 
@hichris123 Yeah it's pretty dumb. Oh look, someone tired who wasn't thinking straight starred my dumb ... thing.
 
throws stars at people
 
catches them all
 
2:21 AM
stars things just for the irony
 
irons Braiam flat just for the irony
 
saw some chains hanging on the porch
 
burns Braiam on the iron
fills the chainsaw gas tanks with explosives
 
wonders if he had to obfuscate his last line more

*why
I'm off, cya!
I was kidding, ... back
 
2:34 AM
just go away!
 
@Braiam But I'm nice.
 
even the beauty can be tiresome
 
I can be very tiresome.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 
@Braiam Not sure what you're asking.
We're aware of what's going on on Ask Ubuntu; we have plans.
What matters right now is that y'all are able to respect each others' opinions and work together to find solutions - using the tools you have, and eventually the tools that are under development.
Without that, it doesn't much matter what we do.
 
@Shog9 under what circumstances does the SE team intervene an already graduated site? (is just something that I meant to ask since long ago, but never found the correct timing to do it)
I already saw that SE had to intervene in a Beta, but never have seen something about graduated sites
 
2:49 AM
@Undo <slightly-long-anecdote> For an LA project, we're creating a website / blog thingy about the main character of a book. The teacher recommends this awful... thing called "Wix." (Icky WYSIWYG-only "HTML5 web design tool" with way too much Flash.)
The example websites that she said were "good" were terrifying. The colors were terrible: bright red on orange text, neon colored backgrounds, etc. An actual quote was "I like how this one has animations," referring to these extremely annoying and distracting shiny star thingies that one student had everywhere.
So I'm hand-coding mine and putting it on my website (I already have a prototype-ish thing uploaded to my site), and I showed her the home page that I worked on for about 10 minutes and she was amazed. :P </slightly-long-anecdote>
 
@Braiam again, you're being kinda vague. We "intervene" on graduated sites all the time - the scope of said intervention runs the gamut from comments here and there to posts on meta to flag handling and other routine forms of moderation to dropping in unannounced and deleting dozens of questions just for the hell of it.
But... If everything's going well, you really shouldn't notice us.
@Doorknob Look on the bright side. You could be using this WIX.
 
"to dropping in unannounced and deleting dozens of questions just for the hell of it." heh, just what I was thinking we should do
 
How does one know when a beta site will graduate?
 
@Braiam as you're aware, I'm working on something along those lines, tying into a larger project. Feel free to throw suggestions under the relevant meta post on MSE as well.
 
@Shog9 well, with "intervention" I meant something akin to sitting everyone in a couch, then everyone saying to the 'sorry guy' that if he doesn't change they will hit him with a big trout (you know, some life changing change to the essence of the site or their users behavior)
@Shog9 yeah, maybe I should trow my hat in the main one
 
3:02 AM
oh, that kind of intervention
Braiam, sit down buddy - we're your friends here, and we need to talk...
 
Not as good as earning the tag badge, but...

mm.... what happened here

COOL
@Shog9 you just need to answer 19 questions... you already have the points
 
SO hiccupping again...
 
@lostsock Poor guy
 
3:09 AM
@Doorknob stappit, you're giving me flashbacks to "internet safety" class.
 
@J.Musser ok done hiccuping
 
@lostsock Someone gave you a gut-punch?
Or splashed ice-water in your face?
 
@bluefeet Thanks, then I will share it

@GnomeSlice We all are sharing our flagging histories just for fun
 
Can we share our flagged histories instead?
 
3:23 AM

@InfiniteRecursion Mines embarrassing.
Only three flags.
 
@GnomeSlice We can't see our flagged histories, can we? Not sure.
 
Only mods, I think.

Q: Is a steak OK to eat if it fell down, but I cooked it afterwards?

ShevliaskovicIf I am cooking steaks at a grill and one of them accidentally falls down on the floor/ground, is it safe for me to wipe it and cook it for a certain amount of time (till it is pretty well done) and then eat it? Or should I throw it away?

Q: How to see if an input is a sentence or a word?

Joshua Dominic Sibughow can a recursive function see if an input is only a word or a sentence? for example a user enters only one word the program should say that it is a word if the word is more than 1 the program should say sentence

 
@InfiniteRecursion he's using recursion!

Hiya @InfiniteRecursion
 
lpapp probably can't reply to you @InfiniteRecursion. I think he still has a one year chat ban?
And kermani doesn't even reply to me nor to Martijn Pieters, so you're not alone there.
 
8:16 AM
One year chat ban!! What did he talk about? o_O
 
It's what he didn't stop talking about I guess @InfiniteRecursion.
 
(very curious now)
 
If you're really curious, just go through the transcripts.
 
lol it's says: Room for me how and lpapp
 
8:19 AM
Be careful @mehow ... you might not want to create it. ;)
 
@Bart Ok, I recognized that name. He used to talk to you and got banned, I have to be very very very careful....
 
Hahaha
Myeah, I don't think that's the real story
 
He was banned from the entire network for 2 months as well, I think the ban recently expired
 
Yeah, he has this wonderful little blog now about how bad SO/SE is @Stijn
 
what for
 
8:21 AM
@mehow being rude to CMs over and over again, I think
 
@mehow unexplained downvotes started it all....
 
oh I see so it wasn't a one off
oh yeah i have just seen his about me
his an anti-SO
 
I wouldn't say he's anti-SO. He just has a radically different view on where it's bad and what would improve it. He's too significant a contributor (or was) to say he's anti-SO.
 
Being smart as he is and gaining rep that easy made me wonder why he woud even bother about virtual lost Fake Internet Points....
 
@rene it's surprising to see how worked up some of them get about that.
 
8:27 AM
um ok
 
@Stijn nice
 
@Bart It is frustrating if you don't understand why you're being downvoted but with all his quality and rep don't be bothered by the few that doesn't understand the merits of your answer.
 
@rene And to top it off, he had to endure @Bart as well
 
but there are multiple users I know with around 20K reputation who are regularly being downvotes on their good answers to good questions... that my friends can really piss people off...
 
@mehow you get a lot of downvotes too

@mehow Don't get pissed off, just laugh when you answer another question which gets an upvote and/or is accepted...that is enough to compensate that few weirdo's
 
hiya @Unihedron!
 
@InfiniteRecursion so we only recently had the whole "this should be a blog!" thing and now they're doing it again?
 
Hiya @Inf!
 
@Stijn yes, but personally I think it's better on MSO compared to a blog. And the failed attempt to migrate it has locked the post now.
@Unihedron Back from school?
