3:00 PM
not in this turn..
goes through emails
@Vogel612'sShadow ur annoying cause you draw it out. :)
@Frank You could've taken my queen with your bishop if I hadn't taken the knight.
@Vogel612'sShadow but you did.
killing off always takes eternities against good players..
3:03 PM
@Vogel612'sShadow which is why it's good you're playing me...
@Unihedron want to play on that Chess.com thing? Looks like that one's working for me.
Eh, sure, I need to enable cookies first though.
3:04 PM
nom nom
I think I just remembered my Lichess password.
(read: I just thought of some potential combinations which I haven't tried yet)
Great. It's giving us errors though.
inb4 chess.com borked report
... so this is what bored people do on Friday's: play chess.
@Frank finally..
3:08 PM
@hichris123 Join us!
wouldn't have seen it without my bishop. in danger, though..
@Unihedron I'm going through emails, cleaning up my room... sigh
@Vogel612'sShadow gg :)
Didn't Friday used to have happy hour?
@Frank gg wp ;)
either way I'm off for today.
3:09 PM
And I miss the tag.
Bye bye @Vog!
@hichris123 yeah, but Anna killed it
@Unihedron I'll play you on either site...
Mar 14 at 17:58, by Anna Lear
Happy Hour is dead. Long live Happy Hour.
@Vogel612'sShadow Cya
3:09 PM
@Vogel612'sShadow Bye!
bows, curtain falls
poke after poof @Vogel612'sShadow
Bye :)
@Vogel612'sShadow @Vogel612'sShadow @Vogel612'sShadow
@Vogel612'sShadow poke
... and those potential combinations are not working. Ugh.
3:12 PM
Why is everyone becoming so owlish? So many poofs...oof!
I think I sent you a thing @Unihedron
@JanDvorak foop retfa ekop
3:13 PM
3 days per move o_o
that was the default :P
@Unihedron Do like vog and I did, play like blitz.
I'm at a chinese restaurant ATM. Should I eat a duck?
@Frank Can't, multitasking
3:14 PM
@Unihedron OK challenged
@JanDvorak Owls are non-edible
They have a live analyzing tool, not gonna use it though :)
also, ...so?
Ok, I moved, see you on sunday!
3:15 PM
@InfiniteRecursion People eat owls. Google it.
@Unihedron noyadidnt
@Unihedron You have to click a submit button...
I hate myself now. After forgetting the password of my primary Lichess account, I also forgot the password of my sock...
Sorry @Unihedron, you're not gonna get away with that :P
i did and it submitted look at the bar
3:17 PM
In case you make a mistake
Ah, Chess.com has password recovery. I think I'm going to create an account there instead.
@Unihedron Lost it, link please
@JanDvorak If I can't eat an owl, I can atleast annoy it :P
@Unihedron There it is.
3:18 PM
@ProgramFOX It's slow though. It refreshes your page after every move. And it gives your opponent an analyzing tool. I like lichess more.
@Unihedron Refreshing? Ugh.
@InfiniteRecursion but... why?
@Unihedron You can play live, but you have to find the other player.
I promise I only used the analyzing tool once. 'Cause I had to see what it does, you know :P
I thought of sending a mail to Lichess explaining that I forgot my password and proving that it's actually me, but if I don't remember the password of my sock, I can hardly do that.
3:20 PM
Aww. :(
@Undo ur a cheater
@JanDvorak because....I am neither playing chess nor eating ducks
good to know Inf isn't a cannibal
@JanDvorak anyway, enjoy yourself...no more pokes from me :)
I have three new emails because of chess.com.
3:26 PM
@Unihedron Accidentally challenged you to a game on the other site... you can ignore
If we have a rematch, can it please be live chess?
@Unihedron Yeh, but later. After this game, I gotta go to work.
Oh, I see. Good workin'!
3:32 PM
Okay, I sent a mail to the Lichess team anyway.
@TGMCians Boring dp
3:36 PM
I think I found a way out of this
@Undo oy?
@Undo What, out of that cookie silo?
@JanDvorak playing chess with @Unihedron
> Vashikaran is a Sanskrit expression composed of two Words Vashi and Karan.
Lets understand Syllable by Syllable. “Vashi” means to Attract, Influence, Allure, Excite or Entice the Desired Person. In other words it refers to bringing a particular person under your Complete Control.

The term “Karan” indicates The Method or Technique of performing it as laid down in Ancient Scriptures.
3:37 PM
@Unihedron I have like 45 mins, so may have to abandon the game unless we play fast
@JanDvorak playing chess with @Undo and @Frank
@Frank ok, we can continue another time when you gotta go
@Frank yup. i feel it looks more better
@Unihedron Yah.
knew you were gonna do that with your queen
k, new you would trap me, too.
3:48 PM
@TGMCians Thanks @TGMCians, now I finally know what the baba tries to sell
no problem yeah
wonders how many ducks the owl ate
@CareBear it's also on Programmers. Haven't turned it on everywhere because I want to see if it helps first.
Low Quality A (34.5%): I am also have having the same problem., by Gugs, on apple.stackexchange.com.
@Uni no! You're winning
3:59 PM
not really..
@Unihedron Uh... you have a rook
You have 4 pawns
but you have a bishop
@Shog9 Why a warning with all-caps and not just an outright quality block?
@Shog9 We've had quite a few hits from Smokey. Search his reports.
4:02 PM
@hichris123 two reasons: #1, that's a trivial block to work around. #2, better quality checks are in the pipeline; this is a stop-gap.
I'm looking forwards for said checks
@Unihedron Oh, wow, and I also have to refresh to look for new moves if I'm watching a game.
Bonus #3: SQL developers love typing in all caps for some stupid reason
@Shog9 Eh, trivial sure, but someone at least has to put some effort into it. Though #2 sounds good.
@ProgramFOX lols
@Shog9 I disagree with the part about it being stupid.
4:04 PM
thinks Uni is secretly an SQL dev
Outright blocks will only hamper detection, and we can't find and fix those because users will use workarounds
Fortran devs has the same issue
@InfiniteRecursion Agreed.
4:04 PM
@Unihedron ok, that was unfair. Idiotic and annoying, based on traditions that should have died in the 1970s. Better?
@Shog9 Yeah!
what are the traditions, specifically? Just curious about the history
@JanDvorak Teletypes that could only do upper-case
oh. Is that the reason? Eugh.
4:07 PM
no! don't answer it Shog, I was about to ask an question :(
Q: Why should I capitalize my SQL keywords?

Stuart Branham Possible Duplicate: Is there a good reason to use upper case for T-SQL keywords? Duplicate of: Is there a good reason to use upper case for T-SQL keywords? Simple question. I personally find a string of lowercase characters to be more readable than a string of uppercase characters. ...

@Braiam you can still do that; there might be a better answer
but yeah - you'll see this in most of the very old languages
Some of them managed to break the habit; others...
come to think of it, isn't it the case that computers learned lowercase later than I did?
@Shog9 how we should deal with spam seed questions?
4:10 PM
Should we flag spam seeds as spam?
"what is the best learning institute in pune"
g2g soon, sorry
define "spam seeds"
questions that at glance looks valid, but short-while has several spam answers
@Shog9 The spammers are asking questions, and then a few minutes/hours/days later answering it with a spammy answer.
questions whose sole purpose is to attract spam
I flag the obvious cases as spam
4:11 PM
If you know it's a spammer, flag it
gg @Frank :)
If you're unsure, use the "other" flag and write "suspected spammer" or something.
@Unihedron gg
Later all!
Laters! Have a good day!
4:13 PM
All questions by this user were spam seeds @Shog9 stackexchange.com/users/5172534/rodeoskillful?tab=accounts
See you!
darn, is a dupe :(
Q: What good reasons are there to capitalise SQL keywords?

BevanThere seem to be a lot of developers who write their SQL by capitalising the keywords: SELECT column FROM table INNER JOIN table ON condition WHERE condition GROUP BY clause HAVING condition I'm wondering why people stick to this approach? Clearly, it's a long established convention ...

4:14 PM
@InfiniteRecursion those are all pretty obvious, yeah
Should we flag spam seeds as spam if we have been observing the user and are sure that it's a spam seed? Or should we flag using "other" flag?
Oops, read the above messages now and got the answer...thanks :)

@Unihedron Good game :D
We're pretty evenly matched.
gg i lost
I think my biggest mistake is I didn't put enough effort getting out my stuck queen.

Thanks @TGMCians, will download :)
Q: Merge the [android-l] and [android-5.0-lollipop] tags

hichris123Android 5.0 Lollipop was just introduced yesterday. Before this, it was called Android L. Since it now has a name, could android-l be merged and synonymized into android-5.0-lollipop? This is the tag naming scheme that we've been using recently.

I might or might not have helped them
Yes, @Uni is another one of those angry people. Why do they do it?

@InfiniteRecursion they might be angry at your frequent pings
@JanDvorak ping
@hichris123 potential for anything, everything can happen
I think nicael is the undercover mod though
@TGMCians, don't ping the angry owl
ah ok :)
@Unihedron unlikely :P
But possible

How many ducks did the angry owl eat?
@InfiniteRecursion because we can
we do what we must, because, we can

@InfiniteRecursion movie reference
Who cares, no more cvs, let the men handle the crap
Ugh, don't you hate it when you were going to do something but can't remember what that was?

@Unihedron ahahaha, no.

@hichris123 It can be even worse: I once had to send a mail, opened my mailbox, saw I had a new mail, read it and then I logged out and I totally forgot about that mail I had to send...
@JanDvorak Oh, so did I take the little pencil or thing and press the reset button? :P

Hmm, I need something to do.
Any thoughts?

@Unihedron night
@Andy Hmm, how far away are you, I wonder? :P
@hichris123 I'd say I'm in a cornfield, but they already harvested it. So, I'm in the middle of a giant mud puddle waiting to happen
@Andy Cornfields are kinda close to me; I'm in the midwest.
@hichris123 As am I.

You can do ::poke after poofs::
@Andy worms like the mud, and @InfiniteRecursion eats worms, so maybe you'll see her out there too
The more that want to rake the yard, the merrier
@InfiniteRecursion I'm too lazy to drive somewhere. I guess I'm just going to post some from my house. :P
I am in my pond @lostsock, am too lazy to go to Andy's place for a few worms...unless his place is overflowing with worms, I am not leaving my pond!

Hi guys
@hichris123 .. cv'd all.
Where can I find a list of all generic comments like " If this or any answer has solved your question please consider accepting it by clicking the check-mark. This indicates to the wider community that you've found a solution and gives some reputation to both the answerer and yourself. There is no obligation to do this" to use while reviewing posts
@Srikanth Assuming that you're talking only about comments that are for good, on topic questions and answers, what other types of comments would be on this list?
@LynnCrumbling Like ones I see under link only answers which say something like " to make this post a good answer follow these guidelines"
8:09 PM
@Srikanth Are you talking about the comments that are automatically added from the low quality queue when you review an answer?
@LynnCrumbling @CareBear Is this comment also automatically added? "This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post. "
@Srikanth This is one of automatic comments available to reviewers in Low Quality review. You need 2000 rep to use it.
@Srikanth Yes.
8:15 PM
@CareBear oh I don't have 2k rep yet I have started reviewing Late answers and first posts a week . I think of posting comments like these on borderline cases and see if the OP edits or else flag the post.
@CareBear @LynnCrumbling Thanks for the info. I have never noticed the auto button under comments is some thing similar available for Late answers and First posts queues?
@Srikanth I think not. If you don't see it there, then it's not there.
However, the FP queue is due for a major redesign soon..
@CareBear Can you clarify if even this "If this or any answer has solved your question please consider accepting it by clicking the check-mark. This indicates to the wider community that you've found a solution and gives some reputation to both the answerer and yourself. There is no obligation to do this" is a auto comment?
