poor guy...
@JasonC Oh, nothϊng.
@Braiam Only to get what response?
> Heh, I’ve got it down… now I just had to respond late at night with “soooorry, my battery ran out” or “looks like I was out of range for a bit” or something and I was set. If you respond like that, the other person can’t blame you for it.

Well said. Applause Makes the internet worth it.
People lϊke small caps‽

12:16 AM
Yeah, that was botling that did that.
maybe I should fix bjbotling
12:18 AM
@bjb568 A bot is broken? What is this, the Tavern? Oh...
should be fixed now
fsymbols.com/text-art Why does this exist? More importantly, why am I still at that site?

This is where all those YouTube comment text art chain posts are born.

Hmm, interesting
And I didn't use dev tools or anything ;)

Oh well. It was worth a shot
What you get for using inline style.
Instead of attribute hidden.
What you're doing is only showing it to screen readers.
@bjb568 ... for obvious reasons
This pic looks funny when you scroll
1:05 AM
… not for me
1:24 AM
I'm playing lightbringer and hotairraccoon flash games now… such nostalgia.
1:45 AM
@bjb568 You are as incapable of nostalgia, teknon, as you are of saudade.
2:11 AM
@tchrist The nice thing about having tchrist in your room: you expand your vocabulary.
@hichris123 Indeed. And at some point I even hope to expand my own vocabulary to that of the average sixth grader.
Gah, I wasted so much time yesterday trying to import the stats for SE sites. Turns out all I needed was a URL parameter: =IMPORTXML("http://stackexchange.com/sites?view=list","//input/@value"). Without ?view=list the server shows that useless "grid" view of the sites, which I long forgot about. And its html source is similar, but has about half the data.
There you go, a rare sighting of xpath that actually does something.
People always get down on me for scraping web sites with Java and Jsoup, but it's never taken me longer than 15 minutes to accomplish a task.
So, suck it, haters.
2:29 AM
I still reserve the right to hate it.
@hichris123 oh those are real words he posts, i thought it was just fluent gibberish
at least I can understand what @bjb says :0
2:58 AM
@JasonC I just figured out Jsoup had an actual XML parser, and it didn't just figure out if it was an XML or not. I wondered why it was parsing incorrectly... :P
@Roombatron5000 Are you fluent in gibberish?
@JasonC books_read++
@hichris123 Yeah. I think the XML parser was added later. The library was originally geared towards parsing poorly formed HTML.

Q: Unreleased Generic exploits in TCP Protocol

Notorious Pet0Does anyone know of any? No ? Good. Cuz I do. and I'll fuck this whole fucking shitty site up . Delete my accounts. NOW assholes, or face the wrath of the notorious pet0

@Roombatron5000 Or possibly a misguided sense of humor and a genuinely bad question, lol.
Well, , seems like trolling.

@bjb568 By the way ^

The URL selfserve-stackexchange.com really looks like a phishing attempt. I thought SE didn't like hyphenated URLs.

Took way longer than it should have, because I didn't want to write any code for this...
It's just a spreadsheet importing things, and publishing a chart.
The chart had to be pretty big, otherwise the bubbles all get squeezed beyond reasonable. (Their size is not customizable, apparently.)
@Yes broken on IE
7:39 AM
but nice work! (in chrome it works perfectly)
Poor, poor Community Building.
Poor PCG is drowning in the sea of averageness
Poor Stack Overflow.... it is lonely at the top...
Poor Math.se with its exceptionally high questions/visits ratio
It turns out Bubble chart API offers more options than what one can get from spreadsheet interface: e.g., variable bubble size depending on some 3rd quantity. The options one gets simply by using spreadsheet interface are relatively few. Anyway, for now I'm happy with this version.
7:48 AM
Learn Javascript. Scraping this data off the site list should be rather easy
One of problems with with math is that search by formulas is pretty much impossible. If on SO one could not search for language keywords, there would be a lot more duplicates and fewer search hits.
Yes, I could scrape things myself (and was tempted to a few times), but one of goals was to learn these ... Super User - type tools.
Too quiet here, does it mean another spam attack is coming?

@ProgramFOX ... did I miss something?
[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: CONFUSED REGARDING 2014 NEC by KULTULZ on diy.stackexchange.com
Smokey died, replacing him.
@JasonC no, I think he just wanted to ask about programming in general and didn't know what tags to use.
@ProgramFOX who killed him? and how?
@ShadowWizard I don't know. Perhaps he was using a large amount of CPU, that sometimes happens randomly, and that kills him.
Python, isn't it?
8:23 AM
Never trust languages and interpreters written by a Dutch guy...

oh, so it's the exact same smokey

@ShadowWizard I'm SmokeDetector, a bot that detects spam and low-quality posts on the network and posts alerts to chat. A command list is available here.

@rene Post ignored; alerts about it will no longer be posted.
@rene yeah, was going to suggest edit to change formatting
OP didn't like my edit on this one though: superuser.com/review/suggested-edits/378570
@ShadowWizard I beat you on that! SF rep is or me!!!!!!!
@rene haha, but it can be rejected if OP will get it first. :D
@ShadowWizard If I could downvote on SU I would...oh wait... I can... whoahahoahaha...
Suggested another edit. Let's see if it sticks this time
9:26 AM
@Bart nah, can't be bothered anymore. not worth my time.
You should have so made that "@TD.512 now your fucking comment contains the cursing..." @ShadowWizard
I did @ShadowWizard

@Bart nice, 1 more to go!
@Bart haha, will keep in mind for future use! :D
@Bart you love cats, obviously....
@rene absolutely. Very tasty.
@Bart ♡ Cats
nice, users on Super User actually listen to my comments :D
Go accept your destiny as their new leader
I would never fit on SU, being nice is not my cup of tea....
9:54 AM
@ProgramFOX your assistance is needed in the Den, I broke your bot...again...
False alarm, bot isn't broken :D
rene is broken instead?
Maybe he just wanted to write a rhyme

I have a spider on my keyboard. What should I do?
Send it to @JasonC
10:30 AM
just ignore it
web spider?
Trap it, then tame it
@rene no, he'll eat it
@Unihedron can't it stares at me
@rene nope. little spider
@JanDvorak but its parents will miss it
They won't
^ frozen in one day unless someone revives it
10:33 AM
@ShadowWizard Chances are its parents are already dead anyways
@Unihedron Maybe I should run Gelidus there too.
@JanDvorak your suggestion basically guarantees spiders will get extinct. How do you feel about that?
@rene it doesn't
Feed it to your cat
you killed the children of already dead parents. How doesn't that terminate the further existence of a valuable life form?
10:40 AM
That explains a lot
Does it?
If over-elaboration is a word you are not invested with it

maybe not

Q: Why is my diamond different on mobile?

RichardWhen I log in on my android phone, my black diamond looks different, somehow funkier and more 3D. Why?

11:40 AM
Back to real world problems...
indeed. My cup of coffee is empty.
Bah, I've offered 3 bounties so far and none of them got an action or answer.
@Bart I'll make some...
11:47 AM
@ShadowWizard oh, I'm doing something wrong, obviously

~ Too much coffee is bad for you
@Unihedron why always me? :P
@ShadowWizard Your predestined fate, you mean?
Nicael is suspended?
11:50 AM
@Bart yes
I miss all the fun apparently
@Bart oh yeah, it was so much fun
What happened?
let's just say our dear @nicael found a way to reduce thousands of reputation points
he reduced @Inf's to 1 and deducted ~20k from me
all temporary, but still....
... ah
11:53 AM
@ShadowWizard Hey, like you two are the only victims
yesterday, by Unihedron
How about notifying mods/devs after just 10 points? But perhaps that's just me
@Unihedron yeah, I know. I can see why me (I don't get pissed off easily) but dunno about poor Inf
yesterday, by nicael
@Inf wanna get rid of rep? :P
yesterday, by Infinite Recursion
Yes, for science! :D
@Bart haha, there was rep eating worm that ate much more rep, for real, and nothing was auto reported to devs

If it's down what am I seeing in the tab to the right?
An illusion?

@Unihedron no, just meta.SE
I'm talking about meta.SO
It's one of the internet providers in our data center.
It's dropping outbound packets.

@BretCopeland Why?

Thanks for the status report.... Cannot browse on SE app :(
can't upload images
can't... do a thing...
I'm just glad I've recently discovered a new purpose in life in addition to surfing SO :P
12:31 PM
I don't want to go out :(
@Unihedron you can still surf SO right now... just not MSO.
Oh yay! Forget what I just said.
@Zephyr repair MSO
Nick Craver is working on it.
and Tom Limoncelli
Were they on stand-by or called to get on it?
12:35 PM
Tom got paged. Craver is seemingly always around. I'm not convinced he sleeps.
Poor Nick :(
Seems to be by choice
even if by free will, he's really tough
@Yes Good work. But why didn't you want to write code for it?
12:38 PM
Although, I asked him about it once, and he claims he gets plenty of sleep.
For some definitions of plenty...
Some think 4 hours is plenty...
and of sleep
Used to work with a guy like that, @rene
@Oded and? did he like you? ;)
I assume you sleep more than 4....
12:40 PM
He had a baby, and I was asking about lack of sleep... he didn't really have a problem.
I just find it strange - like a super power
If you can get a super power, what would it be? :P
Your body seems to be able to cope after a while. Not something I want to try
shh... don't tell Marvel or DC

No, I'm not, try again around December, 5th
