@AndrewT. self-deleted.
 
@AndrewT. It should say: The author deleted this question out of shame
we really need those new reject reasons... magento.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/17848
or at least that reviewers understand exactly why they are rejecting
 
@Braiam perhaps they meant "too minor" instead?
 
@JanDvorak my edit does improves greatly the post...
 
2:18 AM
still leaves bad grammar behind
 
Of course, with the latest development of the official stances on "too minor", which essentially say "eh, no need to care about quality; we can't enforce that anyways"...
 
@JanDvorak mm?
 
@JanDvorak I mean standard fonts. Like sans-serif.
 
one problem is varying support for these code pages
 
2:29 AM
@JanDvorak Bah, support.
 
what was the second glyph anyways?
All I see is a square
 
It's a black flag.
Get a mac!
 
@bjb568 get TFO
 
<-- not mac, still see the glyphs, so: Get a real browser
 
latest Chrome / Win7
 
2:33 AM
why did I guess you would say Chrome/ium
 
@Braiam Give me a reason you need write access to the SD beta room.
 
to write... stuff?
 
@Undo how else to report true / false positives?
 
Ah, okay.
Done for both of you.
 
I would also like write access. And rite access.
And right access, if you know what I mean.

@JanDvorak I didn't have that in mind what I started typing, but it's certainly appropriate =)

I really liked Lisp when I tried it in college. I haven't used it since, though.
@JanDvorak {{$loopy}}
 
slowly, starts walking away
 
Lisp isn't bad. Lisp is low-level with a kicker feature I don't have much use for
Haskell already has programmable semicolons
 
2:52 AM
I'm not saying is bad...
 
I remember trying Prolog, and thinking it was even cooler than Lisp. But I don't remember much else about it.

@Uni @InfiniteRecursion @SilentKiller @DroidDev Any improvements on this answer stackoverflow.com/questions/25892695/tooltip-on-line-chart/…
 
@ItachiUchiha sorry, but, I have no idea about JAVA, so, I'll leave it to others to figure it out. :)
 
@DroidDev Android without Java ?
 
@ItachiUchiha its kind of complicated, but still, I don't know much. I know somethings though
like I know, you have put supress warnings on top of class and I know why they are there
 
Alright :)
@all The wheel of blame doesn't center's its result after completing its rotation
 
@ItachiUchiha still +1, I guess its a good answer
 
7:59 AM
@DroidDev have you tried the wheel of blame ?
 
@ItachiUchiha let me
@ItachiUchiha its true! you should ask on MSE about it ;)
 
is it not centering for you as well ?
 
@ItachiUchiha yup
now, who to blame for that :/
 
ahhh, as I thought
 
@ItachiUchiha Good answer, upvoted :)
Hiya @uni @uni @uni @uni

@hichris123 Hi there
 
@Unihedron hey there, need some criticism on an answer that I just made :P
 
@ItachiUchiha means you want us to criticize your answer..?? :P

Great, love that code formatting :)

With the dark theme on my eclipse, it was making my code look all bright :P
 
I've heard about your theme in the java room before. :P I still haven't switched away from mine yet, it's colorful.
 
I guess, either I will have to switch to IntelliJ Idea or customize the theme myself, there are a few places where I don't like it
 
Instead of so many
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("11/Jan/2014"), 23));
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("09/Feb/2014"), 14));
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("22/Mar/2014"), 15));
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("14/Apr/2014"), 24));
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("22/May/2014"), 34));
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("07/Jun/2014"), 36));
series.getData().add(new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse("22/Jul/2014"), 22));
I would use something like
private String[] dates = {"11/Jan/2014", "09/Feb/2014"......};
private int[] values = {23, 14, ......};

for(int i = 0; i < dates.length; i++) {
generateNextDate(i);
}
generateNextDate( int i ){
return new XYChart.Data(dateFormat.parse(dates[i]), values[i]);
}

Loops are magic :)
 
ejjactly
 
@Unihedron That's why they are teaching magic in your class :)
 
I think if you make an array final it gets optimization passes in the interpretation stage, loops, but I'm not sure.
 
@InfiniteRecursion One good suggestion. Actually I was trying to make it similar to oracle docs docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/charts/line-chart.htm#CIHIGFCI
@uni interpretation stage ??
 
@ItachiUchiha Well in java code gets optimized by the compiler translation to bytecodes, then the interpreter compiling the bytecodes and running on the virtual machine.
 
8:25 AM
I know that :P
 
still you asked.? :P
 
@ItachiUchiha I understand that, since you asked for criticism, so am criticizing :D Personally that's a change I would irrespective of what Oracle docs contain...
 
If I were to criticize, it would be the field naming :)
 
@InfiniteRecursion I said its a good suggestion :)
 
@ItachiUchiha enjoy criticism
 
8:28 AM
Wallpaper in construction? :)
 
it should be Avatar in construction @Sil
 
@uni yup.. searching something unique till that.
@DroidDev updates will be available after 24 hours. :D
 
Instead of commencing an update in that wording can't you construct an avatar already? :D
 
@uni :P work in progress

I'd rather construct a bot, which will construct avatars for me

A: Does use of final keyword in Java improve the performance?

Jon SkeetUsually not. For virtual methods, HotSpot keeps track of whether the method has actually been overridden, and is able to perform optimizations such as inlining on the assumption that a method hasn't been overridden - until it loads a class which overrides the method, at which point it can undo (o...

 
@Unihedron ^Avoid giving that suggestion to anyone, I was a bit amazed to read it, so this one is for you :)
 
8:46 AM
@InfiniteRecursion Thanks :o
@SilentKiller the +1s, yes
 
@Unihedron Always welcome :)
 
@Inf: Actually, I read from somewhere that the final keyword tells to compiler to optimize the field away. I never actually knew what it was intended to do, so that was an enlightening read. :P
 
(also, cc @Undo: LQ)
 
@Unihedron Ok, that explains it. Use final only if it is a design choice, that is you never ever want anyone to be able to change it's value. In that case, you use a final. Also it improves readability, say you read the code of a large project for the first time, when you see a final field, you immediately know that this field's value will never be changed , without reading the remaining thousand lines, and you pay more attention to it's value at that point.

@3ventic I just had a discussion with a co-worker. He said javascript is the best programming language and that you just need to know it and understand its logic. I cannot help but think he is mad.
