Is there any particular reason for using state with OAuth? Why would I care if some other site logs my users in?
lose of control
But why do I care? Why would anybody even bother to exploit it?
@bjb568 This seems relevant: security.stackexchange.com/a/81315
@redredwine That's… weird. I don't see how getting a user's access is supposed to give you access to all the things that has the user's access. Isn't that what OAuth is supposed to prevent?
I just don't see how that attack is possible.
Maybe this should be a Information Security question, then...

A: How to flag correctly?

Shog9First off, read the section on flagging in the help center - there's a ton of good information there, and links to more. Second... Don't think too hard. Flagging is something that's made available to almost everyone who uses the site constructively even a little bit - as such, it generally does...

Q: We just hit another milestone!

Dawny33So, our site just hit another milestone. We are over 10 questions per day, which means we're increasing in traffic and volume. (Kudos to the mods too!) You can view the stats here. We also have very impressive other stats too. The only orange and red areas are the number of unanswered questions...

I didn't expect Data Science to get there... Then again, perhaps accumulating a lot of data is what they do... the quality of answers is usually in the meh territory though.

@ShadowWizard floats. Writing a code generator, and of course my machine is set to English. I just forgot that my colleagues used French settings, so float values format to 0,2 instead of 0.2, generating invalid code.

@bjb568 "an email signature"? Meaning you got several?

@Andy well, they just can't handle my emails... :P
I hear they like "reply all" to giant lists of users. Do that to increase their volume. Volume = Ad impressions.
Save Google!
2:24 PM
nah, Google don't need saving. They're big enough to survive anything by now. :D
To be fair, two of my telkitty email accounts are for people who I used to collaborate with
I can check those accounts but I don't usually
@Telkitty "used to" meaning not any more? That's sad...
lol, no always the more people the better
Many religions would tell you God made this world, not God and God's 1000000 employees

Apparently it's quite complicated.
College class? During a regular semester? Yes, can be complicated.
^ somebody who is worse at marketing than me
@redredwine Yeah, it's dual enrollment. But the math department doesn't need to know that.
They will find out eventually. And then their fury will have no boundary, exterior, or interior.
or infinite
2:32 PM
Well, the empty set does have exterior. I didn't think that through. Corrections are left as an exercise for the reader.
why is that every time someone who knows a little maths is next to you, you no longer claim to be a mathematician?
A correct version would be "... will have no boundary or exterior" => will fill up the Universe.
@redredwine Sounds like one of those weird sets.
^ message order was changed, TCP is broke
empty set
2:45 PM
@bjb568 Yes, if I stopped at "has no boundary", that would be precisely clopen.
I was just thinking about the boundary part. If there's no interior or exterior then there just isn't anything.
@redredwine :D I do remember that part of that video I watched about intro to higher mathematics and stuff a year ago!
The union of interior, boundary, and exterior is always the entire ambient space ("the Universe"). So if all of them were empty, we'd be in a boring universe.
Sounds like the kind of set theory used in some people I know's heads.
With the boundary empty, and assuming the Universe is connected, we are left in an ambiguous situation: their fury is either empty or fills the Universe.
I prefer the former.
2:48 PM
Yeah, they probably don't care.

@Magisch stack.imgur is fine. AFAIK, regular imgur works too (although we have no contract there, so in theory it could stop but I don't see that any time soon).
Its noon for americans right?
Noon in Colorado. Before or after to the left and right.
(well, clock-time. Solar noon isn't for another hour here)
@Magisch Good guy, Pekka
5:59 PM
Ahh, so you're in the middle of your workday @Shog9
heh... My workday is... Kinda skewed and spread out.
I wish I had your amount of flexibility in my job. My workday is mandatory 8am - 4.30pm every day with no exceptions
How much coffee?
Well if I was working at stack I'd not even be sure where work begins and where leisure ends since I find myself drifting to stack for leisure every other half hour :p
@TIPS only during lunch break
we aren't allowed to grab drinks during non-lunch break
yeah, getting enough coffee before 8 would be a problem for me.
6:01 PM
@Shog9 Besides being a sponge for user indignation and invalidating tons of votes all day, what do you do?
what, that isn't enough?
I get up at 5.30 or 5am usually, I'm an early bird
Challenges of Scale talk by balpha, actual presentation begins around 3:30.
thats why I do my review queue reviews between 8 and 9 usually
@Shog9 I assume you do more since you're good at more things
that just means more things to procrastinate at
6:02 PM
or I'm severely underestimating the among of votes that need invalidating
you're severely underestimating user indignation
moderating stack is work by any objective measure
yet it doesn't feel like it
@Shog9 Would its amount decrease if downvotes cost 0 rep and did not come with a notification?
It feels strangely catharthic and is a so welcome relief from coding business crap all day for a company
but seriously: most of what I do is support - answering questions, listening to feedback, trying to find areas where there's unnecessary friction
6:04 PM
So you're the professional shoulder to cry on?
@Magisch yeah, that's how I ended up doing this. Though now strangely I find coding cathartic.
@redredwine slightly.
I guess its a "the grass is always greener on the other side" thing
You really wanna get under someone's skin, you leave a comment. That's true now and would still be true then.
@Shog9 I've had a decent amount of success with explaining my downvotes to people
I got serially downvoted a couple times too, but eh, the script gets those
And swishing around with smoke detector is an oh-so-satisfying part of my daily work routine
6:08 PM
@Magisch we are creatures built for contrast. Consistency, no matter how pleasant, is something we quickly acclimate to; when small irritations are the only change, they seem to fill our world. The old joke about hitting yourself in the head because it feels so good to stop is truer than we'd like to admit.
@Shog9 I suppose.
Btw, are you guys content with the H&I queue?
^^^ a bubble chart of SO the company from balpha's talk. (Where are the slides?)
It feels like sifting the 99 questions wrongly put in there to find the one that belongs there
@Magisch no
but honestly, I'm not sure it can be improved much
@redredwine Looks yummy
6:10 PM
it's there if anyone wants it.
@Shog9 Yet you guys found a way to motivate otherwise highly paid and highly proficient professionals to not only give away free consultancy in the millions but also play digital janitors for free
Somehow making tasks that would ordinarily be super boring semi-interesting
For a limited time.
@Magisch folks want to do this. Remember that thing I said about the hammer...?
You sit at your job and you look at the horrible code in front of you and you see the clueless new folks struggling to make sense of it and mostly making it worse
And you think, "would that I could answer these questions in a way that would improve the caliber of new folks"
And given the opportunity, you try.
Our job here is to provide that opportunity.
@Shog9 For me its more like "I'm done with this assignment and the new one is tedious, slow, and has about 3x as much time allocated to it then I need for it, but I don't want to ask for another because it'll be somehow even more tedious. Lets see, ah yes, how about some close vote reviews"
That escalated into over 1600 close vote reviews in my 10 months here
6:36 PM
@Magisch cool to see Pekka picked that one up. I have been tempted in the past. Very shady stuff.
Then again I guess Pekka knows "genuine" when he sees it.
