@bjb568 Please tell me you didn't just discover that. Otherwise you're making me feel really old.
I'd seen it on an ascii table before, but I kinda forgot about how you could do that before seeing the post.
You are really old tho.
[Error] WebSocket network error: OSStatus Error -9806: connection closed via error  (1, line 0)
What is this even…
12:16 AM
oh, I was doing it wrong
@cybermonkey 1. That totally freaked me out in the transcript, and 2. Sorry, I accidentally all the stars.
12:36 AM
@JasonC That's just like the issues I had with DevDoodle's chat message controls before I did a megabugfix.
It's kinda weird. It only happens in the transcript. The drop down is all kinds of messed up.
Or at least I think it's only transcript, let's see...
don't go kicking people to "test if it's possible"…
Oh, @bjb, you would have appreciated this. Delta changes their in-flight safety videos every month or so. The one on the flight today was very meme heavy. At the end, it had a shot of a dog reading the safety card and in colorful Comic Sans on the screen it said "very exits, much safety, so preparedness".
wut… lol
It also featured the dramatic prairie dog, the annoying orange, nyan cat, a bunch of gerbils, some cat on a roomba, etc.
Yeah, I was torn between facepalm and lol.
12:41 AM
Roomba fun!
such lolpalm
Haha, totally.
Oh there was a screaming goat, too. They really packed the memes in tight.
@JasonC what the...
Wouldn't the senior citizens have an overdose of the dank memes?
I don't know, but there was this lady, looked to be in her 50's, sitting next to me with her daughter, looked to be about 10-11. And the lady said "Haha, it's the annoying orange!" and the daughter said "what's the annoying orange?" It was very... disorienting.
Well maybe mid 40's.
@JasonC That's just messed up bro.
12:47 AM
@JasonC next time you aboard a Delta plane, use the secret technique Space Out in Earnest so you don't get... disoriented
Annoying orange was my childhood, man.
Looks like Delta puts them online, lol.
oh god...
Yeah, I was forced to watch that in the presence of other people today. It was kind of rough.
Oh wow the dancing banana was in there, I didn't even notice.
12:54 AM
es horrible
The dancing baby was uncalled for. Clear target demographic is disappear.

var wss = new ws.Server({
	server: http.createServer(function(req, res) {
		res.end('All glory to WebSockets!\n');
This works.
var wss = new ws.Server({
	server: https.createServer({
		key: fs.readFileSync('../cert/devdoodle.net.key'),
		cert: fs.readFileSync('../cert/devdoodle.net.crt'),
		ca: fs.readFileSync('../cert/devdoodle.net-geotrust.crt')
	}, function(req, res) {

This doesn't.
I can connect to the https server, but not to the websockets.
Q: How can I setup the einaros/ws module for NodeJS to accept wss (secure ws) connections?

Octavian NaicuI am using the eniaros/ws module for NodeJS to communicate in real time between an iOS app and the NodeJS server using web sockets. The app runs fine, but now I have to secure the communications between the server and iOS app using wss. I have my Rapid SSL certificate and key and I am using the ...

Oh yas!
I made it work, now it only shows "invalid cert chain"…
Oh, of course! localhost ≠ devdoodle.net
I'll test it on the server then…
1:32 AM
new WebSocket('wss://devdoodle.net:1337').onmessage = function() { console.log(arguments) }
And it works locally when I "Always Trust" the cert.
2:09 AM
@bjb568 Still not on the server!
Ok, ok, I ate some shrimp fried rice, all ready to finish the megacommit.
Couldn't you... commit different files in different commits?
Even more than that, you can commit different lines of files in different commits.
It's too complicated.
I added SSL, fixed a bunch of bugs, improved all the docs, added some security enhancements…
2:29 AM
Can someone without confirm that /tagged/php+mysql shows questions also tagged with ? Or that it used to?
@KevinBrown any vs all
and no, it didn't used to do that...
apparently instead of "and" tag searches use "or" by default
I thought [foo] [bar] always showed [foo] AND [bar]
Are you sure it didn't previously do that?
Right now in incognito if I search two tags it strips the second one, and gives me the "OR" by default (which I can tolerate)
@hichris123 not anymore
@KevinBrown For me it shows questions tagged [php] [mysql].
@Braiam How about in search?
Is that still normal?
2:39 AM
I'm really confused as to why it doesn't happen in incognito, and I don't remember hearing about the change
@KevinBrown Depends on the parameter &mode=all, which in GUI is represented by a little toggle on the right.
@Yes I'm asking about without , totally aware of the new navigation changes
As for the incognito, this is a change due to DDOS attack:
Q: Multiple tags search broken when searching as anonymous user?

Smit JohnthWhen I input [asdf][lisp] into the search field on http://stackoverflow.com, without being logged in, only one tag remains. Is it broken?

Aha, now that makes sense. Thanks!
2:42 AM
I misread "without" as "with". Sorry, can't confirm that part. Maybe @JasonC can; he doesn't have new nav yet, I think.
I don't have the new nav yet.
(sorry if I didn't make that clear)
But nobody cares about your confirmations.
Great, now we have a URL which shows one thing to a group of users, another thing to the rest of users, and a third one to anonymous visitors.
Writing up the meta post about it... the default behaviour changed there, now it's impossible to link to an AND query and have it work for those with and without the new nav
@Yes I can't really understand what you're asking me to confirm.
2:44 AM
It's the SE version on Umwelt... deal with it.
(without specifying is:q and making it a search)
@JasonC This
I see only questions with both tags.
133,871 questions.
Yep, confirmed once more. Those with new nav see questions with at least one of the tags. 945,331 of them.
@KevinBrown Also, the existing links of this format (meta, external sites) will not work as intended once the takes over.
2:47 AM

@JasonC Registered answer as false positive.
@Yes I was very disappointed that nobody got my reference earlier.
Q: Filtering questions by multiple tags doesn't work with the new navigation

Kevin BrownThis is not about selecting the "all" option in the new navigation when filtering for multiple tags, it's about the old tag links for filtering questions by multiple tags. You used to be able to filter questions by multiple tags by having a url like /questions/tagged/first+second Which would ...

I was behind on xkcd (gasp!), caught up this morning.

in The 2nd Monitor on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, May 26 at 14:57, by Unihedron

@Unihedron Downvoted for lack of research effort and not finding the SU question first. :P
@JasonC Lack of effort sure, then explain the link in my question.
Lifehacks seems to be the place to ask questions when people don't feel like finding the right site to ask questions on. It's like a sponge, sucking good information from cooking.se and superuser.
@Unihedron You linked to superuser.com/q/256692/172747 in your question? :P
You know, the one that's the second Google result for "ants in keyboard".
@JasonC Stop making google important.
You know, the one that's the second DDG result for "ants in keyboard".
what the hell is DDG?
7:45 AM
You know, the one that's the second Bing result for "ants in keyboard".
@JasonC No, the second result is the popular crappy Yahoo answers.
@JasonC Get out.
@Unihedron Top 3.
@JasonC It's not.
Top 3 are two yahoo answers and a MakeUseOf article.
Are you claiming that information about getting ants out of keyboards is hard to find?
I didn't think so. :P

7:47 AM
@JasonC Proper information. Shooting a flamethrower at it is not.
I'm sure you'll find something on the first page of search results just fine. Besides, it should've been an SU question. Add hurting the other sites to the list of reasons why Lifehacks is awesome.
If there ever were a case for cross-site duplicates, that'd be it.
Every LH question should have a root-cause counterpart, e.g. How do I get ants in my keyboard.
Haha, yes.
@rene also, how to obtain ants with only my bare hands and a container
@JanDvorak possible answer: Try if this works for ants as well...
@JasonC Yes.
But my laptop is not infested by ants.
> This solution is for serious laptop ants. If you've only got one or two, just brush them off.
I ended up following ton.yeung's advice in a chat room and got rid of them just fine, now I have no idea which answer to accept since I didn't try any.
@Unihedron Your question does not state the level of ant presence in your laptop. Should it be closed as unclear?
Perhaps I should accept the one about using toxic gas.
@Unihedron cw self answer quoting the chat advice
If you solved it in chat then self answer.
^ Yeah.
8:01 AM
or ask the chatter to answer
@JanDvorak It's not really a hack, just bought a box of ant thingy and left it on the table.
good enough
But it's the solution that worked. If the solution that worked didn't require a hack then your question shouldn't be on LH. Don't accept an arbitrary unhelpful answer that you didn't even try because you want the accepted answer to be "hacky". That just hurts the internet.
So just self answer it, hack or not.
poor guys
8:04 AM
@JasonC "Don't accept an arbitrary unhelpful answer that you didn't even try" - I agree with this. That's kinda why I haven't accepted any yet. If I don't know what the right answer is to accept, at least I don't want to accept a wrong one.
@JanDvorak Yep, worked like a charm.
Self-answer it with the solution that actually worked. Do you want to help people with the same problem or not?
@JasonC I know, I know.
If you're afraid of Mooseman saying "Sorry, this doesn't seem to be a hack", tell him to butt out and to stop actively discouraging helpful answers in favor of low quality crud.

Obviously, why else would I be here then? It's not like I can get to this page without using the /leave/all code
And plus, there's no "not really" button.
So just make it "press any key to leave all rooms, or Ctrl + W".
CTRL+W also leaves all rooms, just not visibly
@JanDvorak You'd still be in a room. Only after 15 minutes will you leave due to timeout.
is "timeout" an euphemism for death?
Aw, too bad you can't post javascript links.
8:26 AM
:3515074 fkey is not an object.
I wonder why $.post("/chats/leave/all",{"fkey":fkey().fkey}) works but $.post("/chats/leave/all",fkey()) doesn't. They both do the same request, according to Fiddler, and fkey() is {fkey: "whateverkey"}.
@Unihedron On this page it is a function. Type fkey() in the console.
@JasonC The parameter of .post expects an object. fkey() doesn't return one. See typeof(fkey())
what does it return then?
Object {fkey: "somekey"}
It says "object".

Q: Some questions tend to turn into polls, is this bad and how can they be answered better?

Jason CI see a lot of questions here that essentially turn into polls. Often the nature of the question leads to poll-style answers but to me the "issue" seems to be in the answers themselves. An example of the general form of such a question and its answers might be: Q: How do I X without using Y?...

Seriously, are you going to do anything about Lifehacks other than complain? No? Then stop complaining. Either do something about it, or do nothing.
