[ SmokeDetector ] Blacklisted user: How can I track my location and phone logs? by LucianaTP on android.stackexchange.com (@bacon)
I wonder whether there's an MSE question about not showing Excavator and similar for new sites
More or less...
Q: Don't allow you to choose impossible badges on the new profile page

ᔕᖺᘎᕊThe new profile pages let you choose a badge to track, but it allows you to choose impossible badges! For example, on per-site-meta sites, where you cannot start bounties on questions, you can choose to track 'Promoter' ('First bounty you offered on your own question'): (image from per-site-meta...

1:29 AM
@haney Updated to add support for assert(), dir(), time(), and timeEnd(): github.com/gh-canon/stack-snippet-console/commit/…
Although, I dislike the autoexpansion for console.dir(someHtmlElement) because it's slowwwww... because I serialize everything at once.
it's a pretty obscure feature anyway
oh my god I LOVE YOU. Do you have any idea how long it takes to find/figure out this single line of code online? Thank you, I shall name my first born child after you for this — karpathy Aug 21 '10 at 22:23
Because of the nature of overriding time() and timeEnd(), there will be a disparity in the values displayed in the virtual versus native console.
I do like the group() and groupEnd() methods as well but I'm not about to dig into that
maybe over the weekend
screw it
I'm pulling that auto-expansion
the speed is abysmal

A: What happens if you put the connector of a live charger in your mouth?

nickI did it and to be honest it felt quite good for like 2 seconds.

@SantaClaus Writing code is a thing that some people do…
@SantaClaus I had no idea Stack Exchange was being used as a dating platform o_O
@Haney looks like this issue on the mobile site can be resolved by applying height:100%;width:100% to the <iframe>.
@Quill Unfortunately that actually has happened. :( On chat.SO... it didn't turn out too well for that user.
2:17 AM
wait are you serious
Sadly yeah.
.... because absolutely every other platform on earth wouldn't do
Some people are slightly confused about what is on-topic/appropriate for Stack Exchange. Other people have more... fundamental issues.

Q: Starting with a VtC rampage isn't a really good start for a site

peterhWhat are you doing? "Specifing the site topic" shouldn't mean that you close & destruct anything you randomly picked out. New SE sites are mostly good-behaving, friendly environments, but it seems this site isn't. This way will lead to the mentality of an ancient usenet group or a decade old ir...

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it belongs on Yahoo Answers. — sandwich 29 secs ago
Seriously, what other reason could I give? I don't want to point to Math.SE
please tell me that's not the reason you used in the CV
Why would you want me to lie
because ignorance is bliss
3:32 AM
Usually I do something else... one can't leave the reason "I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because " unedited (the button is disabled), but deleting "because" works.
paste the nbsp html entity characters maybe?
also blatantly off-topic works :p
Only when you closeflag. This is not an actual close reason on SO.
well I wouldn't know, because I'm still a poor noobie on SO
"blatantly OT" takes the place of custom close reason since those are not available under 3K. Most of the time, I wish I had the former rather than later.
ignorance is never a bliss ... IMHO

Recruiter email?
being a junior is fun
@sandwich No, email from my superior
@Quill Nobody says "predominantly" for "mostly" or "mainly" like that.
Nobody but one, it seems
Was it really misspelled like that? :/

@sandwich No, email from my superior
Oh, it is an actual word. TIL.
Adverb: predominately ‎(comparative more predominately, superlative most predominately)
  1. in a predominate manner; predominantly
his "work for you in this sprint" email was just like "finish off the issues that you've started" (which are all done) and then "find some library for a color picker"

> Solving problems by driving out THE WRONG SORT OF PEOPLE is always appealing. In practice, that means everyone, especially yourself. -- Shog9
Okay, then what are we to do with them? Ignore? Try to make them less wrong? Stop paying attention to what's wrong with them?
ship them off to Antarctica and get them to build homes for those freezing penguins
And after a while you realize it's easier for you to go build those.
3:53 AM
After a while you realize you're not supervising the ones building the homes, you are one of the ones building the homes
Something terrible has happened to "predominantly" in late 70s: books.google.com/ngrams/…
I'm not certain that even if you built them houses, the penguins would domicile there.
@Quill And then someone tells you "you're turning into a penguin. Stop it."
@sandwich I don't even think I believe in that other word.
It's better to brake for penguins than to turn into them.
@sandwich People probably got more stupid and reduced the amount of syllables they use
@tchrist that's the joke
3:58 AM
They also began using "amount" for nouns that are unambiguously countable.
@sandwich At the point you realise you're a penguin, you're probably so burnt out from trying to build houses with flippers that you don't care about the houses anymore
> The majority of the air is gone now
I was seriously thinking about buying land in Tasmania & building houses there because Tassie land is cheap & global warming ...
good scenery & clean air too
problem is that ... it would be an expense rather than investment because rental vacancy is high and capital gain almost no existing ...
4:02 AM
buy a house in an up and coming area and then AirBNB it out while you rent in Tassie
Today one of my testers said that trying to divine what was wrong from utterly generic error messages was like trying to pick a lock with a wet herring.
@Quill *an
an house
He obviously was a burglar in a previous fishwife.
@Quill It's hard to get a good seal with tired flippers.
Hence the need for a herring lock.
@Quill airbnb is kind of like running a motel business, I have no patient to be roped in because you kind of have to be near premise to handle day to day care.
fair enough
What's the most alluring aspect of Stack Exchange to new users?
4:10 AM
Pre-existing answers that solve their problem.
So then, what's the most alluring reason to contribute anything besides questions on Stack Exchange?
Does the scope of static variables and functions vary across languages that have such a feature?
What's that in English?
better :)
@Telkitty yes and no, static isn't scoping
it is ... kind of ...
4:17 AM
besides C's static keyword
@Quill Hearing the sound of your voice (in writing)
That's all that counts.
@sandwich I didn't say shouting in a parking garage
Looove talking when it's easy to pretend that someone listens.
(Hence my current occupation, I suppose)
4:18 AM
so all our top answerers are simply lonely conversationalists?
static is a storage class.
what does that make us chat users?
@tchrist yes, static is about storage duration ...
And opposes auto, register, volatile
@Quill It is not the same.
One we're just pontifcating at, the other is social icing.
Hm. Trying to think of a very quick way to produce random-looking (but deterministic) integers in a spreadsheet. No need for worry about quality of their pseudo-randomness.
4:31 AM
Current idea: =floor(abs(sin(row())*1e9)), which looks reasonable from math point of view.
But seeing 999990206 in row 11 is disconcerting.
4:45 AM
Aha. Instead of sine of an integer, take sin(golden ratio * pi * integer), to get a more uniform arrangement as in a sunflower

@Quill well done, SE, well done 😂
so... I have found out about this SharePoint control called "<SharePoint:JSGrid>"
I added it on a page.
Without even needing to configure it, the resulting rendered source contains syntax error.
The moment I add the control to the page, SharePoint adds the required scripts at render time...
This is one of them.
    function TryCreateGrid()
           if (ctl00_PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea__grid_JSGridController == null)
                   ctl00_PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea__grid_JSGridController = new ();

I am trying to get over my dislike for bots.
They can be useful, but are often used or interpreted poorly.
True, I expected folks who know and love programming to make better bots, but now I know they just make any bot. I ignore tags which attract comment bots and users who run "not relevant for me" bots using their account.

@KutuluMike No, you have to ask a CM for such data.

@UNIMATRIX424GRID116 that bokeh though
In photography, bokeh (originally /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay — also sometimes pronounced as /ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light". Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting—"good" and "bad" bokeh, respectively. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside...
I'm just making sparks

Generation loss is the loss of quality between subsequent copies or transcodes of data. Anything that reduces the quality of the representation when copying, and would cause further reduction in quality on making a copy of the copy, can be considered a form of generation loss.
