Q: Don't force sync with my oldest account on my network profile

starsplusplusI tend to put information on my profiles that's relevant for that particular site.

@Pandya it depends, if you have a webservice and some code that fails SO is fine. If you are looking for a webservice to provide certain functionality maybe SoftwareRecs (but check their rulezzzz before posting). Maybe webapps is an option as well....

oh, 3rd-party hosted services are no good
OK, then I got that part correct ;)

@falsarella Make sure you have the votes tab selected. ^^^^

There's nothing illegal about typosquatting - it's kinda like that guy that plays bagpipes in the park outside your house, but he's smart enough to only do it during not-quiet times and he's two decibels below the legal limit. The solution to both of these is the same - dish out enough money to outright purchase the portion of the park (in this case the domain) that he likes to sit on. Parks, like these domain names, are not cheap. — Undo 1 min ago

@falsarella It's per-site, which is handy since "active" is often better for reading meta.

WorkPlace mod nominations close in 2 hours... still 3 candidates. Out of 3, yochannah's candidacy makes the most sense to me. It's also the one with 0 comments under it...
Jane S also has strong points, but a member for 4 months...
We've had pro-tems come on that are brand new to the network and do just fine. It's stranger on a graduated site, but the tools aren't too hard to learn
We've also had people that have been around for years come on and have no idea what they're doing.
Although that's really rare
@Undo As in tooling or as in where SE stands for?
Tooling, mostly
But they tend to get straightened out, it's just a little more painful of a transition
You probably don't want to have @Bart mis-click in the mod-tools....

[ SmokeDetector ] Blacklisted website in body: Prediction of required workflow? by Yann Petretti on wordpress.stackexchange.com
@SmokeDetector why
@Undo Body - Position 72-86: buysellads.com
@SmokeDetector Not specifically blacklisted.
6:13 PM
The question is OT, of course.
Ah, okay. Site doesn't look too spammy
I thought for a while that the pattern-based domain matching should be called differently.
"Suspicious website" for example
pattern-matching site
They do help with the endless variety of domains, but it's a bit misleading when it comes up with "blacklisted" label.
6:15 PM
Actually, that particular regex is probably too wide anyway. I'll look into tightening it up.
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like are you there?
Did Smokey catch this?
One might argue that it's a false positive, but I think it should be detected for inspection.
although it should have
6:23 PM
Maybe the queue hadn't reached capacity yet
that first word is definitely in the regexes
I personally think it falls outside the bounds of respectful discourse, but others may have their own opinion.
@SmokeDetector why
@KevinBrown There is no why data for that post (anymore).
(just curious if it would say anything)
6:25 PM
This is the default answer when Smokey doesn't know why.
I'll try to separate patterns from the explicit blacklist without breaking too much in the process.
hehe, you have a long way to go before you catch up with me in the build-failure-count category :P
I'd have to start messing with the core logic for that to happen.
Yay, failed.

@PraxisAshelin did you try press F10 on the screen where the error comes
I guess you mean shift+F10
I did and tried clean, format, assign, .... in DISKPART
been a while a done that
I updated my question with screenshots of the error and my BIOS settings
after ~13 hours of trying to solve this issue it's starting to get on my nerves
can you try install some other OS just to check
I'm downloading Win7 atm just for that
6:58 PM
any other ideas besides that?
@PraxisAshelin Recently I hit that issue and ended up hacking around it by switching to BIOS from UEFI
@KevinBrown how?
I worded that horribly
And I realize now that you've already tried it
> Changing the EFI mode in the BIOS
"Legacy BIOS" + "AHCI" was the match for me
Are you sure your drive isn't failing btw?
7:01 PM
would be odd for it to fail right during the installation
it worked fine a minute before I tried to reinstall windows
Well, it'd have happened earlier but it wouldn't show signs until now
(I only ask because I also had that issue)
where do I set Legacy BIOS?
You... don't appear to have the option
Which is fine, not everyone does
lies in a corner and cries
@PraxisAshelin W7 failed too

it's still downloading, will take about another hour

though the selected disk is the first boot disk
it also lists an error The partition is too small sometimes but disk 0 is 225GB and disk 1 is 930GB, hardly too small
@Undo had my brother flag it
@PraxisAshelin what started all this ?
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like what do you mean? I'm just trying to do a clean Windows reinstall
@PraxisAshelin was there anything wrong with it that we can relate all this to ?
7:21 PM
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like I had an issue with my graphics driver
@PraxisAshelin never heard of a graphics driver issue cause this much of a trouble
no I mean, I wasn't able to fix the driver issue, and since a format was already long overdue on this pc I decided to try that
btw, I'm unable to copy/upload the setup logs from my desktop (since no OS) but I think I'm getting the exact same ones as these sevenforums.com/installation-setup/…
@PraxisAshelin how about you pop one of the disk out and plug into another computer and try install OS there. Just to find out where is the problem
7:32 PM
@The_IT_Guy_You_Don't_Like I don't have another computer to plug them into
just a... macbook
so uhh... twiddles fingers

Q: Windows installation: Couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one

Praxis AshelinI was trying to get a clean Windows installation on my hard drive, but am running into some issues. I get to the part where I need to select which hard drive I want to install Windows on. I have 2 harddrives, but both give this error: We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing ...

@PraxisAshelin I remember that is easier just to delete the old partition
@Braiam and then what?
I can say that my issue (which triggered this issue, the weekend before last) was a failing drive, my backup partition table had pretty much disappeared and running a SMART check on another computer confirmed it was failing
@PraxisAshelin well, create the partition like you want, but any information on the old partition would be definitively lost
7:53 PM
@Braiam have u read my question?
@PraxisAshelin not in the slightness
@Braiam I've already tried all that
@PraxisAshelin let us just wait for the windows 7 to complete downloading
continues twiddling fingers
7:56 PM
@PraxisAshelin mm.. I think someone asked for the setup log files?
@Braiam they're in the question
mm... is windows trying to guess which disk is the boot disk and failing? maybe remove all but one disk and try again?
@Braiam tried that
