inb4 "fixing my bookmarklets. They seem to have stopped for some reason"
I'm not that bad at JS... I even considered answering JS questions on SO at some point. Took some water and extra rest, and it passed.
What font does SE usually use?
Fonts are a part of design, site-specific.
@justabrickinthewall even on chat?
Chat uses Verdana for messages. <- Verdana. I like Verdana.
12:11 AM
@justabrickinthewall ah.
Dr. Who spam. :)
12:19 AM
Nice, two helpful flags instead of one.
I like foop.
foop is awesome.
12:22 AM
@just ^
or maybe it's not that hot, actually. Doesn't it qualify for auto-deletion?
just me or there are revisions where I can see the markdown and others where the rendered mathjax math.stackexchange.com/posts/990244/revisions
12:51 AM
@JanDvorak I was away, another user quickly rolled back. But now I see the OP made good progress there, so voted to reopen.
I'll be back!
I'll be Frank!
@Braiam MathJax runs after the page is loaded, and renders the revisions that are shown on page load. Older revisions are loaded dynamically, and MathJax does not run on them. I'll post a feature request or bug report on meta.Math (grey area, which one should it be?)
feature or bug?
1:15 AM
Ah, this is hopeless. Even in the first revisions, the diff viewer breaks MathJax by repeating some dollar signs, if formulas were edited Example.
@Frank when you are unsure, take them both ;)
I forget which SU question explains how to get empty characters (forget what they're called)
oh, there's one.
2:14 AM
> Topics include: one and two dimension arrays, advanced data structures (including trees, linked lists, sets, and maps), algorithms, and algorithmic analysis.
Wow, this is like an advanced Comp Sci class?
advanced for whom?
@JanDvorak Advanced meaning it requires "AP Comp Sci A & instructor approval"
For high school students, apparently. This is from AP Computer Science AB syllabus.
@justabrickinthewall Oh, they just made AB into another class? snort
(AB was retired)
They also cut out object-oriented design from that sentence.
2:25 AM
Oh, it's taught with Java.
waits for the outpouring of hate towards Java
@hichris123 Is this HS or college?
Lazy kids. Whatever happened to hard work? -- Joel Spolsky on the The Perils of Java Schools
2:46 AM
@MartijnPieters No. Existing 30-day rules run on Saturday.
I just reported a side effect of your all-caps warning, @Shog9.
@justabrickinthewall fixed.
Accepted. :)
3:02 AM
@JasonC I buy eggs 5 dozen at a time.
@justabrickinthewall HS
3:58 AM
I find it mildly curious that Shog9 has additional messages in user profile on two sites: Meta.SE and Programmers. Both sound quite... sobering.

Huh, that's weird. Community still approves an edit if I'm out of review quota but get to improve. Exhibit-X

@user245167 aka: infinite recursion meta.stackexchange.com/users/245167/user245167
Everyone gets an extra hour to star troll today?
Not every country changes clocks today; some do it on another weekend, some don't.
@Unihedron Did you improve from within the queue or from question page? Either way, someone had to approve the suggestion so that the suggester got the points..
6:30 AM
@justabrickinthewall I improved from within the queue; I was out of quota, but I manually went to the review task by right clicking the edit(1) button and the improve edit button was there. It didn't count as a review task completed, but community approved it.

[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: PROBABILITY OF WINNING A TOUNAMENT WITH 4 TEAMS by KCS Kumar on math.stackexchange.com
no, 50/50 , win or lose
edit (1) button was on the question page, not within the queue, right?
\ o /
7:00 AM
| o |
@Unihedron My point was, the limit refers to the queue, not to edit approvals themselves. Just as you can still cast closevotes after being booted out of the Close queue, you can approve edits if you get to them via the question page.

@TGMCians I soggested-edited that answer long ago, but nobody's reviewing edits there now...

morning all, first coffee!
you should all move to a more accepted timezone...
9:44 AM
@Sam I edited that one...
@rene Where did you get deh codez from?
@Sam was an xml snippet
that gets rendered as html, which doesn't do much because those are not valid html tags
xml should go in an code block
I see that often in asp.net/html and config issue questions
9:53 AM
Oh ok.
If you have the feeling something is missing while the text suggest there should be more, just hit edit to verify...
My comment about the useDao stuff is just a bluff though....I've no idea what I'm talking about

@JanDvorak that would be smart...
11:00 AM
Either an innocent user who was curious about seemingly "too-good-to-be-true" scheme, or a very clever spam. I would assume the former for AGF, but his request is out of question though. flagged
@AndrewT. it is closed now...
From BadBitCoin.org, it lists the site as "Bitatt.com Pile of sh#te is too nice a description for this scamsite. Put a little more effort in please scammers, this is too easy. 08/10/14". So, either you trust that site, or you trust this site. Your choice. — Andrew T. 34 secs ago

tnx Inf ;)

11:19 AM
@user245167 I knew you were inf! Ha! :D
@inf went into the witness protection program, please don't out her @uni
11:37 AM
12:00 PM
@cVplZ What's witness protection program?
12:16 PM
Witness protection is protection of a threatened witness or any person involved in the justice system, including defendants and other clients, before, during and after a trial, usually by police. While a witness may only require protection until the conclusion of a trial, some witnesses are provided with a new identity and may live out the rest of their lives under government protection. Witness protection is usually required in trials against organized crime, where law enforcement sees a risk for witnesses to be intimidated by colleagues of defendants. It is also used at war crime trials. ��2...

1 hour ago...
you guys are slow on sundays.
There's not much to say...
Is there ever? you lot seem to find thing to talk about anyway, on some days.
Chess anyone?
@Frank Bart always has something to say. Or should I say "had"? :(
@Unihedron I would, but I'm going to church soon. Have to pack sports clothes....
@ShadowWizard :(
1:26 PM
I'll probably play ultimate frisbee and/or badminton, do some hayrides with kids, do a bonfire, etc etc...
That's some bad duck. What's up with her?
@Unihedron Maybe later, I'm working on Pham.
@Frank with who?
@Sam Ok :)
@ShadowWizard the duck.
1:30 PM
@Frank oh, dunno... probably swimming in her pond :)
@ShadowWizard Good. Not Barts pond then...
@Frank guess we can never know..... :D
@ShadowWizard She looks more like pawn than a duck. Maybe she wants to play chess with @Uni.
@Frank too late, I'm playing ;)
@ShadowWizard Is Uni winning?
1:33 PM
@Frank not yet, but I won last time we played
@ShadowWizard Maybe if I distract you, you'll lose.
looks for distracting pictures
you know my weak spots, @Frank! D:

1:40 PM
@PatrickHofman it takes only 2 to reject in MSE
nothing more we can do.
@ShadowWizard Okay. didn't know that. Thanks
1:48 PM
@PatrickHofman cheers and thanks for bravely standing in the gates, holding the spam away :)
Also too bad the review counts in MSE are so broken, there's no way to know there's a single suggested edit in the queue
You have the counter in the top bar, right?
At least that is what triggered me.
One CV in the queue. That's all now.
@PatrickHofman nope, at 10k we don't have it anymore
hmm.... now that you said it, guess I'll have a tab open with my sock.
Why not? I am 20K at SO and I still see it. Why the difference on MSE?
@PatrickHofman no, we see the grand total of reviews available in all queues, when it's lower than a certain threshold, it won't show
SO always have reviews, MSE usually doesn't have
So I see 1, and you see nothing. That makes sense.
But no problem, I will give you a heads up in chat ;)
1:55 PM
@PatrickHofman yup, and worse, I don't even see "1" when going to the review page itself.
Must actually try to review to know there is one, so without a user script it's nearly impossible to catch suggested edits on MSE.
That makes no sense to me at all. 'Feature request'?
(unless there is more than one, then it all works like a charm)
I am sure that is a dup.
@PatrickHofman nope, might start a bug report soon when it will become too irritating :)
2:12 PM
@ShadowWizard Good luck. Will see it then, or I will when reaching 10K ;)
@PatrickHofman yay! thanks! :D
He keeps trying... Quite annoying.
@PatrickHofman yup, but in the end of the day, it's just more badges for us ;)
hi @hic!
@ShadowWizard Sure, like you need them
2:26 PM
@PatrickHofman I am addicted to badges
@ShadowWizard Keep some for us.
@PatrickHofman no way! they're mine! :D
By the way, just noticed what you mean by @Inf going to witness protection.... now that's really weird. I blame @hichris123!
@ShadowWizard Not my fault.
@hichris123 last time she reset the avatar she said it's because something you said.... now she reset both avatar and name :(

> mute in chat
2:30 PM
@hichris123 oh, so that was because of the @uni @uni @uni @uni @uni @uni stuff?! :D
Why do you people yell at her for pinging me, then? :o
Anyway, hope she'll unmute herself soon, for the sake of the Tavern!
I hope so. I liked to have a girl around here. Makes me feel less nerdish.
@Unihedron not me, I never yelled at her :)
@ShadowWizard You got that backward.

@Inf I see you're back to your chick/duck self, kudos!

@ShadowWizard yes, I couldn't say no to hichris123
2:32 PM
@user245167: Please come back :)
@hichris123 ohhhh, guess my memory got bad sectors at my advanced age :(
@PatrickHofman bummer, just realized my sock needs 2K rep to see the counter :(

Did IE stop to work after these much pings ?
I'm not using IE.
i guess it must have hanged for a min
ah ok then ok
And actually, one-boxing a message including a ping doesn't actually induce a ping.
@Unihedron yup, and even 100 pings in same message would give only 1 ping
2:41 PM
when sam did
ok Shadow
didn't know that
only one
2:42 PM
thinks of pinging everyone with a super ping
hey, he's stalking us! :D
quietly walks away
@Sam wants to super ping @Uni, @TGM, @Pat, @hic, @Fra, @rene, and even @shog?! :-P
2:45 PM
Sam account nuked :p
@Shog9 can you ping someone from the iOS team please? The beta version is down for more than two days...
@ShadowWizard is it still in beta ?
they published first version a year ago, didn't they ?
@TGMCians no, but the beta channel is still available.... or at least used to be
oh gotcha
for testing, they update it more frequently with fixes before publishing
hey what happened to my sock?!
2:50 PM
yes this is how we do in case of android apps also
shog suspended your sock!
@TGMCians and your beta is still up?
@TGMCians noooooooooooooooooo0oooo00oo
it's using IE. 'nough said. :D
@ShadowWizard it's live on google play that is only for india , we keep beta for internal purpose
10K employees is enough for just testing
& feedback stuff
@TGMCians oh, you mean your own apps, thought you meant SE's android app :)
ah ok
@TGMCians 10k? amdocs by any chance?
2:53 PM
Spice Global is an Indian conglomerate headquartered in Singapore. The company operates in the sectors of telecom, finance, entertainment and technology.

@TGMCians nice. amdocs got more employees worldwide, but I think "only" 5k in India
amdocs gurgoan building
it is one part of a building
they have many office in india. nice company
@TGMCians yup, worked there for a while in the past, got couple of team mates in India.
@ShadowWizard sounds good
@TGMCians yeah, they even came to Israel for a visit one time, it was fun :)
2:57 PM
haha nice
@ShadowWizard Hmm, maybe I'll just ping shog ;)
@Sam I dare you to do that! :P
Only if I get a 500 rep bounty :P
@TGMCians interesting, the building in Israel looks much like this too
They have cross-country architect or something... :)
yeah :)
3:05 PM
@Sam only if you spend it on a good cause :P
@ShadowWizard I'll donate 80% to charity (the other 20% is taxed). :P
I just sent 4 CONSECUTIVE flags on a comment thread, and each time only one gets deleted...
@Sam just don't feed trolls with that rep ;)

That comment thread at the bottom has been the subject of 4 flags, each reading "Delete ENTIRE comment thread" or something like that
@ShadowWizard Don't worry, Braiam won't get any of it ;)
3:07 PM
@APerson can't see any obviously bad comments there....
@ShadowWizard Wouldn't you agree that it's unlikely to help future users?
@APerson but it serve the purpose of comments, to ask for clarification
you say it's all obsolete now?
@ShadowWizard Thanks. But was not near my pc.
@PatrickHofman no worry, @rene stepped in and nuked that spam
Anyway, who said the Tavern is sleepy on Sundays?? :D
3:16 PM
@hichris123 poor Alenka. dozens of spam edits on her answer....
@ShadowWizard strange text to get your valium sold...
@rene think it's more trolling than spamming, but doesn't really matter. As you see he even mentions Tim there.
It might be the Indian hacker, finding new ways to troll after being blocked from creating accounts
@ShadowWizard No, it's spamming.
@hichris123 wow...
@rene there's more, I can see full history
> Samsung CEO said he was gay first.
@TGMCians eh? who? what??
@ShadowWizard Apple CEO told he is this week.
> Tim Cook wrote in Businessweek “I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.”
3:28 PM
@PatrickHofman yeah, but not Samsung's and where was this quote taken from?
What's so special about them being gay? ...
@ShadowWizard ah not really
> Your friend San just played a prank on you. 34,988 people were trolled.
Here's their message to you:
@TGMCians where you take all those quotes from?
3:30 PM
oh..... LOL
patent wars rulz
> someone shared on fb
is the equivalent of "heard from a friend" and everyone knows how reliable that is
I wonder how come nobody tried to register a patent on being gay just yet
pls SE chat, I only quoted the first line
iGay patent incoming?
3:31 PM
@3ventic no can do, it's all or nothing
@hichris123 how did that happen??
@ShadowWizard Don't ask me. :/
@hichris123 what did you actually edit?
@ShadowWizard huh?
I just changed the tags.
@hichris123 yeah, but you remember what you changed?
oh, silly me
I thought it's the same tag changing position!
Just now realized it was a typo tag
3:51 PM
@ShadowWizard oh nope. ;)
@hichris123 well, it happens many times to high rep users, who have a typo in a tag name thus creating new tag by mistake
A: Warning or confirmation on new tag creation

@hichris123 rule #1: people do not read messages
it applies to both 1 rep newbie and 1000000 rep user :(
Yep, I can vouch for that.
@ShadowWizard Skeet reads messages. xD
3:55 PM
@hichris123 nah, Skeet writes those messages :D
@hichris123 He doesn't, his bot does.
