@SilentKiller Yes, it's time to wear hats

I should craft myself a hat for my avatar.

Meh, I'll code myself a hat...

@euphoriaoverlord I already knew but thanks for the notice

Hiya!
 
So remember, guys: I'm the Gilles whose role model is not Vladimir Putin.
 
starts scratching head
 
@DroidDev are you wokey ?
 
wait....Who is Vladimir Putin...??
 
Chiptune?
 
11:08 AM
Anyone has facebook id of Vladimir Putin?
 
@DroidDev you wanna poke him ?
 
Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (Russian: Влади́мир Влади́мирович Пу́тин; IPA: [vɫɐˈdʲimʲɪr vɫɐˈdʲimʲɪrəvʲɪt͡ɕ ˈputʲɪn] ( ), born 7 October 1952) has been the President of Russia since 7 May 2012. Putin previously served as President from 2000 to 2008, and as Prime Minister of Russia from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2012. During his last term as Prime Minister, he was also the Chairman of United Russia, the ruling party. For 16 years Putin was an officer in the KGB, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before he retired to enter politics in his native Saint Petersburg in 1991. He moved...
 
This is Mew, he changed his name on Puzzling yesterday
 
@Gilles oh! given the website, I think then that must be for puzzling people ;)
@SilentKiller no, actually I wanna get a nuclear submarine on rent for one month ;)
 
11:14 AM
@DroidDev I'd say “confusing” rather than “puzzling”. We're on rather opposite sides of a meta debate and he prefers to convince people by deception rather than with arguments.
 
Can you tell me how to code it? Please! :) — Tina 7 mins ago
 
@Gilles I think his way is more effective, given the resources and influence he has...
 
@DroidDev I was talking about Mew, not about Putin, but indeed it works with both, that shows how well-chosen the avatar is
 
ohhhh! drama
 
@Gilles Actually, I never Knew about Mew (Cool! that rhymes "never knew about mew"), so the confusion ensues.... :/
I think we should close the topic :/

Is there a way to star messages from mobile?
 
Yeah. Wait until it gets a star from a user. Then you can click on the star.
Or pull up your developer console from mobile, and submit a POST request. You're a programmer, right?

@PatrickHofman lol you should make +1 ;)
 
@SilentKiller Okay, I did.
 
then i'll ask for F1 (help) xD
 
@PatrickHofman I see a similar (but still different) code block and the explanation is different
and, that's a pretty simple block of code. I can see that being the same for different users
 
1:32 PM
@Andy: In this revision he just copy/pasted the code: stackoverflow.com/revisions/27061974/3
 
Question: suppose a question already has an answer. Can I add a bounty to it and then immediately give the bounty to the already written answer?
 
@SPArchaeologist: Yes. Happens on meta a lot.
 
1:52 PM
no @spa, you need to wait minimum of 48 hours before awarding the bounty to an existing or new answer
I gave bounties to existing answers twice...it doesn't allow to give immediately
sorry @bluefeet, the hat is supercool, but my face scares me...I will revert back to my old pic :(
 
@InfiniteRecursion ok. Second question. Are bounties retracted if the giver is banned?
 
no, bounties are final once given
 
then what about this evil plan:
Mr. Evildoers uses his pack of sockpuppet minions to self increase his rep.
 
aand Mr.Evildoers gets caught, his sockpuppets get killed and he gets a timed suspension
 
If you want to talk about me @SPArchaeologist, at least mention my name.
 
1:58 PM
okay so far so good, what next?
btw, killing sockpuppets takes their rep down...
 
Then he bounties is to Mr. Buyer that has bough it for real world money on www.CheapWoWgoldandSErep.com
 
@InfiniteRecursion it's ok. I understand
 
what if he sell the rep before he is banned?
 
To much blabla to be understandable... — rene 16 secs ago
 
@SPArchaeologist did you find CheapWoWGoldAndSERep.com?
if you can prove to the mods that this happened, I am confident that the bounty will be declared invalid and Mr.Buyer will also get a timed suspension, if not outright ban
 
2:00 PM
@Vogel612'sShadow nope, but it was to give the idea. Would it be actually doable to transfer your rep to others via bounty and have it never retracted even after you are banned?
 
Gaming the system is a punishable offense..
 
@Vogel612'sShadow ok, so you would at least need someone to notice
 
nobody is guaranteed their account and rep remains intact when they buy rep
sure you'd need that...
 
@SPArchaeologist Serial bounties? I bet mods can delete them manually.
 
@Vogel612'sShadow nope, it is that the whole "give me a way to give rep to other" meta question, added to "I gave bounties after one years question was answered" comments gave me this dark scenario...
 
2:03 PM
hmm...
 
Do anyone ever explained why bounties are final?
 
because.. that's the way things work?
no clue...
 
@SPArchaeologist Isn't this scenario researched by Nicael?
 
thanks @bluefeet :D
 
@InfiniteRecursion ooh, you have a new hat :D

yeah...thanks to bluefeet <3

@bluefeet suits her?

don't buy a nexus 5 @Braiam
 
@Bart some days
 
@InfiniteRecursion so, what to buy? :O
 
:O
 
Why no nexus 5 @InfiniteRecursion? I have one .
 
Just don't buy a nexus 5, I have one and I don't like it.
If I knew what to buy, I wouldn't have this, would I? :D
Do you like your nexus 5 @Bart?
 
2:12 PM
Yep, I do.
 
@InfiniteRecursion is there any objective reason why not? or is just because it won't come in yellow?
 
Battery backup isn't great
 
@Braiam Windows phones are doing awesome these days
 
@rene what?
 
battery backup @InfiniteRecursion?
 
2:17 PM
@SPArchaeologist I didn't read everything but I assumed you were debating gaming the bounty system. I recall Nicael did that ... (and was caught/banned/suspended for that, IIRC)
 
In 2 minutes I have to go to my locker which is far away. I have 5 minutes to do that. It'll take 8 minutes :(
 
Walk backwards, gain time.
 
Invent time-travel in the next couple of minutes?
Invent time-travel. period.
 
Oops...distraction, I was on a call...sorry. Battery doesn't last for long on my Nexus 5. I have a Samsung S3, which is older, but is still an amazing phone and the battery lasts longer.
 
really? Okay. I don't have that experience. I'm still comfortably at 50% at the end of the day.
Then again, I don't play candy crush all day. :p
 
2:21 PM
I play candy crush all day :D
Wikipedia and Tavern are open too...that's all. And the battery comes down to 5% every night
 
@rene while I would hope that it wasn't banned for debating but for misbehaving while doing so, I was only asking myself if the system allows to perform "rep laundering" by abusing bounties. So far you gave me the impression that it does unless some human intervene. I was hoping for some more automatic.
 
@SPArchaeologist I can't find the post anymore but I recall at least one loophole was plugged with a fix...
 
@rene this is more reassuring

Q: Why was eating meat on Fridays forbidden in the Catholic Church for so many years?

NarnianI understand that the Catholic Church forbade people from eating meat on Fridays for many years. It seems that it is no longer every Friday, but just during Lent. Also, it is not all meat, but all meat that isn't fish (from what I understand). How did this become considered a sin? Why meat? ...

 
You should really never eat meat in a Catholic Church ...

I have this problem where my laptop becomes unusable (CPU pinged out) if I put it in sleep mode, dock it in a docking station, and then wake it up. The only way to resolve the issue at that point is to reboot. I told our sysadmin about it, and he suggested I stop using sleep mode o_0
 
@Bart: You get all the stars..but your meme doesn't get upvotes o_O

@Bart That's definitely one way to look at it.
 
@InfiniteRecursion people are conflicted whether or not I should have more votes than brown. I'd say, upvote them both.
