in Unix and Linux on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 4 hours ago, by terdon
Hey, I'm sensitive! I like flowers and everything!
I'm very sensitive. This also, unfortunately, means I'm not very specific.
12:37 AM
LPT: Don't merge branches with github for mac. It likes to barf everywhere.
@bjb568 nothing beats the command line/terminal.
I think that explain many things
@Braiam ... like Linus being... well... an annoying person?
@hichris123 no... actually he's on his right
he isn't bashing at GitHub as whole, just that they can't do better yet they don't (btw, that isn't still fixed)
@Braiam ... so you ignore a 3 line patch all because you hate GH PR's? Seems extreme.
@hichris123 no, the things he asks is the kernel git pull request rules, which GitHub doesn't enforce (while plain git does gasp)
1:13 AM
is soundcloud up?
@Braiam yes, from mobile site
@AndrewT. arg! I can't access the desktop one
@Undo: Thanks, I will keep that in mind for the future before recommending anyone to SR, sorry for the trouble I caused.
Undo: 1, SO: 0
2 branches + master + lotsa confusion
It should be like 3 lines with occasional arrows going from line to line. NOT THIS MADNESS!!!
1:29 AM
that gives me an idea to create a subway map with github branch
1:40 AM
@AndrewT. oh, yeah, the accepted answer is just a link...
@InfiniteRecursion Hey, it's not like you recommended Code Review to someone with a plzsendtehcodez question. :P

To continue yesterday's conversation about the editing bot, here's my editing script (read the known issues before you install it and check what it did before you leave the post): github.com/AstroCB/Stack-Exchange-Editor-Toolkit.
Perhaps @Unihedron could use his RegEx powers to fix that i issue...
@AstroCB "Know Issues" …of course there's no actual issue tracker on github.
@bjb568 It's okay, I'm learning.
They're not really issues, per se, but more weird behavior.
… that should be fixed or resolved somehow
2:11 AM
@bjb568 Fair enough.
meh, I use "Known issues" when the issue is not in my code but some other library that I use
2:27 AM
@bjb568 seems very clear to me - high information graphic, I think
@BenCollins Clear, sure. It's clear that it's a mess. What I want to see is my branch dot dot dot pulltomaster dot dot dot pulltomaster. I have no idea where 5 branches came from.
2:41 AM
looks like a fork (presuming this is github?), probably. Can't tell exactly without seeing the whole graph, though. I still don't see any problem with it, although I can see how it might be nice if you could limit the graph to "only this repository"
@BenCollins Yes, it's github. No, it's not a fork. There are no forks.
Hm… how to extend screenshot to include more graph? …
you could just link to the repo
unless it's private, I guess
It is private.
I guess I could let you in for a peek… Eh… meh… Nah, it's secret.
@bjb568 Better?
nah, it's not that important ;-)
I was just curious
2:47 AM
ohhhhhhh! What is this? @bjb568 having a secret?
@AstroCB claps
@Braiam Yeah. I'll show you guys when it gets out of beta. Whatever that means.
It's a wabsite. And I don't want R17 to spam it or hack it :P
Also, personal information that would become less of a problem later on.
3:17 AM

@bjb568 4/5 issues closed.

Oh good, someone rolled it back. Can tell by the title redirect.

@michaelb958 yep
some guy did
another rolled back
maybe I need to put up a FAQ about what to do when spam is found
@Braiam yes :)
8:09 AM
@Stijn yeah, I expect some revenge downvotes from you ;)
@andy tnx for adding the close voters room to the BOT
Does anyone here use GitLab?
Hey @balpha you are identified as a gitlab user, do you have it hooked up with TWO ldap servers?
8:50 AM
@balpha Yeah, out of the box they only support one ldap but that won't fly in my setting
why why why?
oh, that's "TWO" as in "two", I thought it was some acronym
@chmod711telkitty why why why what?
new dashboard!? (wait, I think I have said this before)
@balpha I wanted to put some drama on 2 ... ;)
8:52 AM
@rene I don't know the details of our gitlab setup, maybe @GeoffDalgas can say something about that
Ah thanks
@AndrewT. Quoted the historical lock at them; that do?
@AndrewT. Stop engaging the user, it is not useful. Best closure is to redirect them to the help center which finally sends them to meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/254393/…
Ok, thanks both
@chmod711telkitty I still don't understand, what does that screenshot have to do with "TWO"?

I am trying to log in on a DIY chat
@chmod711telkitty did your sock get merged with your main?
but it could not find my profile ... well it did but not really
your ID is 2369847, not 1357851
@Stijn not for the past 2 months ... both logged in with the same email address - the only one I have been actively using.
or is telkitty a different user than you?
8:57 AM
I thought things will sort itself out, but it has taken way too long
@InfiniteRecursion plz send teh coffee
@Stijn not according to the reps and profile picture ...
They are the exactly the same ones as with this one that I am using

@InfiniteRecursion :(
@Unihedron fine now :)
yes I did. I'm so sorry.
Is there any point at flagging answers as well as questions?
@JanDvorak it... brings moderator attention more effectively?
nice try ;-)
9:44 AM
@Unihedron oh , that sucks dude. I had some weird ants in my keyboard one time. Thankfully, they were just in the keyboard and not the tower. So I just threw the keyboard away and bought another for 20 bucks.
@lostsock did you put it on fire?
@Stijn no, i'm weird, not much into fire
@Unihedron do you have a geek squad you can bring it to? they say that they fix bugs on computers
@lostsock I need one!

Have you committed to the PLT proposal @uni?
2:48 PM
I'm the first to commit to it :P
Do you like PLT?
Eh... No.
But it sounds interesting.
Good. Get ready to get bored. Read the dragon book for compilers, then read Turing machine and theory of computation. Both are amazing topics - Theory of computation and Compiler design. It's extremely enjoyable upto that stage. But stop before PLT, it's extremely boring.
@InfiniteRecursion We used the dragon book back in college for compiler design, coupled with the o'reilly Lex and Yacc book... interesting class, especially how tokenization works....
This OP has no idea what they're doing... stackoverflow.com/q/26062577/656243
3:04 PM
Is it true that I can delete most folders named /^\.?cache$/i and files with .tmp extension?
I haven't read Lex and yacc, will add that to my to-read list. I too enjoyed reading about tokenization @Lynn. I hope @uni reads dragon book before seeing PLT questions, else he will be forever confused about compiler design.
I should read the dragon book.
which os @uni?
Windows atm
Yes, order a copy from amazon
3:06 PM
Yes, in windows you can delete cache dirs and .tmp files safely.
Hah, I stared at you for three hours through the window while you sat at your computer, but you never noticed me. — muntoo May 11 '11 at 3:01
I want a Linux!
3:12 PM
Who doesn't?
I don't
Then you haven't used it @Jan, Linux is the best!
3:14 PM
@InfiniteRecursion It depends entirely on what you need to use it for.
@Andy Windows is vulnerable.
@Unihedron Heartbleed. Shellshock
Not that Linux is invulnerable. :P
Everything connected to the internet is vulnerable
I agree @Andy.
3:15 PM
my phone isn't
Probably showing my age here, but do you guys remember teardrop?
that impacted everybody...
@LynnCrumbling Caused BSODs right?
@Andy exactly. (or kernel panic in *nix)
Showed just how much of BSD's TCP/IP stack had been reused by everybody.. MS included.
Your phone must be low-end @Jan, if it's connected yet non-vulnerable.
Noone even knows somebody still uses that
3:21 PM
I had that when I was in studying, nice sturdy phone. And yes, non-vulnerable.
Chat noob question: What privs required to mess with room feeds?
@AirThomas You need to be an owner, or a moderator.
Yes, it was a phone of the previous decade, launched in 2009.
@ProgramFOX OK. Figured as much, but could not confirm.
@LynnCrumbling Yes, fascinating times....
In that same time-frame you where often left with an unuseable server after patching...
all very safe...
3:29 PM
Safe and unusable? Doesn't sound good. Didn't users complain?
@InfiniteRecursion users always complain
aaaaahhh my server is unuseable! good thing it's safe!
True @Braiam. Did you write the spam faq for AU? Lot of escort spam targeted AU today.
I'm American, I'm not sure that I've ever actually seen Turkish Delight. The mention of it makes me think of The Chronicles of Narnia. — Jolenealaska Sep 16 at 7:22
@InfiniteRecursion WIn NT had a C2 label only if it wasn't connected to a network, if it wasn't running it must be even more safe.
@rene Amusing :)
A: Is it safe to eat moldy cheese if you slice off the edges?

domi buy blue cheese and let it mold. its the same type of mold that is already on it. I also let my brie mold a bit (until it smells) and then eat it. Gives a STRONG pungent flavor. Never tried it with other cheeses like provolone but I figure if I haven't gotten sick after eating blue cheese with ...

It's links to a betting site!
Please stop opening spam links @uni, not advisable at all.
Good to know.
@InfiniteRecursion ... did I miss something?
4:27 PM
What the? meta.stackexchange.com/q/240116/266094 seems like a troll, look at the tags.
^I have never seen anyone so confused about gender before.
@uni, you are amazing. You tell trolls to take the tour!
The title makes for a very one-sided discussion. Plus I doubt this is on-topic, and you're misusing tags. That's not how you post a question here. Please take a tour. — Unihedron 1 min ago

@rene What's that?
hey guys/gals
4:35 PM
Hey, TGM
@Unihedron the quickest link I could find to reference of the suspension of that account
@Unihedron I believe the suspension end date couldn't fit in a regular sqlserver date field so a future request is pending at Microsoft to allow it to take stardates.
@rene XD
hey @bjb568
4:39 PM
Troll post has been deleted.
@InfiniteRecursion Can't tell if it's sarcasm..
There are two SE items on the header!
4:41 PM
I missed the hey train so.... Hi @TGMCians
No @uni, it wasn't sarcasm. It was information. Similar to the ones we share when spam posts are deleted.
@Unihedron Perhaps whatever you're using to change the styles is also adding that extra item at the top.
This still needs a SPAM flag
4:44 PM
Or is there some new setting that lets you pick a theme?
@rene gone
@jadarnel27 The mere notion that I would allow people to pick a theme and not make the alternative brown based is clearly absurd.
4:48 PM
@TimStone I don't know what I was thinking.
@jadarnel27 no, inverse colors, I'm going to toggle my userscripts until it works better
It's okay, I forgive you.
That's nice @uni, Pham and Zephyr had guests :)
Sam will be proud when he returns to hear! :p
Where is Sam? Didn't see him or Pham online.

Well, I'm off guys, see you all in a couple of weeks.
@TimStone Thanks! ...should I post a feature request about that brown theme? Or is it on your to do list already?
Thanks @Andrew, I missed that. I will be away for a couple of weeks too, good to know.

Hey @Uni I'll be off in a few mins, but I won't be back for a couple of weeks (functions/events coming up) just so you know ;)
