well, for him it will be
 
@Fundamental Well, he could flip a switch and then demand a ransom... SE has some money to spend now...
Not that he would do such thing....
 
I know! I'm so excited, really hope they start paying me this year

Just saying to prevent I get banned as well with a flip of a switch...
@NickCraver but... we appreciate what you do! Isn't that enough?
 
There, have a star @NickCraver. That should suffice when those computer thingies do the real work for you anyway.
 
Well, they let me play with hardware soooo, it's a wash
I'm planning out next week's upgrade now, servers: 1 Git, 11 web, 1 file, 1 LogSQL, 2 redis, 2 tag engine, 1 util, 1 SAN, 1 DAS, and 2 VM blade chassis with 2 blades each
....going to be a fun week, seeing as that's the live data center :)
 
1:13 PM
tempted to jinx it...
 
Well, let's enjoy the last week of this site then @Braiam
 
Wonders if all that hardware is first build-up and tested outside the datacentre...
 
fresh servers from Dell, completely unconfigured
we automate every aspect of the deploys we can - so a new web server being dropped in is nexus configuration + about an hour to build - mostly hands off
DSC for windows, Puppet for linux at this point
 
1:19 PM
PS FTW
 
Let me know if you need a hand, I've got an impressive 6RU setup right behind me (well server is just 1 RU)

I'm interested in what you mean by 'The high rep community members here show a lot of loyalty', because when I look at the front page of high rep users, out of the first ten, 6 of them barely do anything on the site anymore. Out of the entire page there (36 users), 22 of them are rarely seen anymore/have left for good. Is that normal? — J. Musser 6 mins ago
And then there's me, who was gone from June 19, '12 - May 16, '14. Missed almost 2 years here. Not the best track record ever. :D — J. Musser 1 min ago
lol, wonder what Ana meant.

@PeterJ Nice to see editors doing a good job as usual.
 
@Sam lol, that's terrible.
I'm not gonna edit it either, for fear of getting rep.
 
@Sam, lol I see what's happened now
 
Sam
@Frank Ikr? And this isn't an isolated case either.

yay!
 
@Bart I'll give him a learning experience he never forgets...
 
@rene well, since Bart is here to lend you the stick anyways...
 
@Bart what's the point? It's crappy question to begin with, typical "fix my code"
 
@Fundamental Good idea; done.
 
@ShadowWizard the user did take time to edit the body of the post. And I sometimes do edit for such users as a "this is what we mean" kind of deal.
 
Sam
@ProgramFOX Be careful, you'll pick up FPs on SO/SF and possibly SU.
 
@Sam I searched; though SO search gave nothing. Do you have an example?
 
2:02 PM
@Bart "don't use CAPS" sounds trivial enough even for the most... simple... users. Code formatting might be a different story indeed.
 
@ShadowWizard you'd be surprised
 
Sam
@ProgramFOX Pham's caught a few of them before from those sites. I'll see if I can find the reports...
 
If there are FPs indeed, I can always exclude those sites from the >>>> part.

@Fundamental You can go post a link to the room and the sites you want posted in CHQ, and I'll try to get to it today.
 
@Sam Let's wait to see what it gives; if there are too many FPs, I'll exclude those sites.
 
Sam
@ProgramFOX Sure. Just wanted to give ya a heads-up. ;)

@Sam Smokey excludes code blocks before checking the patterns, which should help with fps from such character strings.
 
Sam
@Fundamental Oh, right. I wasn't aware of that.

Looks like they're using socket.io... that and their min.js returned 404
 
That means success in IIS....
 
I'm sure they'll mention that everything's running on Azure if the stream holds up. If it doesn't, it's on GAE.

What's wrong with socket.io?

There is a live stream for the Windows 10 briefing starting in an hour: news.microsoft.com/windows10story
 
Am I the only one not getting excited about that?
 
It's good to at least be informed about it.
 
I've been running Win10 TP since day 1 in a VM.
Technical Preview wasn't exactly the best name, now, was it?
 
how is it?
 
4:12 PM
how is W10 TP?
 
I have a bunch of invites to google.com/inbox, any takers?
 
nope
 
@Undo WP users such as myself can't even use them... :(
 
Already have inbox and love it (on my phone)
 
4:23 PM
@Undo sure
 
@Bart email?
 
EVERYONE AVERT YOUR EYES!

@bjb568 +1 (As opposed to the +2 you would've received if you were completely better)

That would be a disappointing event: Discovery channel's Loan Shark Week
 
I wanna wag in the den with someone other than the bot...
 
@Frank bot is tougher than me
 
@bluet so...?
 
waits for bot to wear frank down some more
 
6:31 PM
I'm tougher than the bot.
 
oh yea, you're the smartest most special tree in all the 400 billion trees in the world
 
@bluet but, if I only play with the bot, we will tie for most words in one day.
We don't want that, do we.
 
@ProgramFOX Recursion :D
 
What if we could have a rep loan shark in SE
Just imagine, new users slowly spiraling into rep debt after taking out a huge rep loan, spending years just trying repay tidbits, only for the rep sharks to aggressively hound the users for their rep, trashing their profile pages, downvoting without impunity.
And just when it seems like things can't get worse, the repcession hits, and all of a sudden users find they need to pay even more rep to these greedy savage rep dealers, as if caught in a Sisyphean game of rep

Q: Questions on the Related/Linked Sidebar do not reflect an answered/unanswered state

euphoria overlord From here, notice how the sidebars for these three sites are a tad different, notably, Math.SE. I'm not sure if it's just me, but Math.SE clearly shows whether or not a question has been accepted or not in the sidebar. I decided to have a gander at the other sites, because I wasn't sure if i...

So I've been trying to draw attention on this massive bug invading the site making it literally unusable

@Bart Thanks, but I don't think it'll be of much help
I posted a bounty earlier and the viewcount went up by 9 during the duration of a week
 
We'll see. Can't do much else with my rep anyway
 
@Mooseman never heard of that
 
I got cybernet points but I'd rather have a fixed issue then points
But thank you though, that's really awesome of you
 
7:01 PM
@Bart hate speech @inf
 
@euphoriaoverlord worst case we can ping an employee, but let's wait for a while.
 
@Bart If I wait another year, can I have a two-year anniversary celebration of the question that has never been seen by an employee?
 
@euphoriaoverlord if that happens, I'll get a cake and eat it in your honour
 
@bluet You seem upset, you need a hug
 
hugs @bluet ... there there
 
7:03 PM
@Bart wait another year, I'll celebrate your 3 year anniversary

Has anybody else been watching the Windows 10 event?
 
@Mooseman turned it off after a while. Bad presenters, nothing amazing. Unless I missed something.

I will wait for the written article

speaking of written articles, where is the blog post about the most recent podcast?

@balpha Glad I could re-jig the thorn in someone side... poke, poke.
 
Yeah, I remember the issue being a bit messy unfortunately. But such is Markdown, I suppose.
 
@Werner Be careful there, we have guaranteed benefits, especially the very last one
 
@balpha That's only for sharp sticks, though. Anything else is fair game.
 
@balpha I see... thorns may qualify as a sharp stick.
 
9:01 PM
Yeah, I should ask HR for a clarification.
