hm, no, not it. why do you ask though?
@Stijn You can see the language set for a specific tag at the bottom of its info page though (e.g.: stackoverflow.com/tags/java/info)
@ɥʇǝS that's probably it, I guess I misremember it and incorrectly thought there was a list. Thank you :)

@JeremyBanks nice! Are these network-wide?
@Stijn Ah, that's only for Stack Overflow. What were you looking for?
that zalgo in the starboard.. I keep seeing it in the corner of my eye and wondering how a piece of grass got on my screen -.-
12:18 AM
@JeremyBanks I was trying to figure out why language hints aren't working on DevOps (link)
Isn't tag -> syntax highlight connection entirely site-specific?
They are, as Jeremy noted
@Stijn It appears that Prettify is not enabled for DevOps.
@Stijn almost certainly not enabled at all there. Make meta request.
12:24 AM
@JeremyBanks I suspected that
@Shog9 I'll edit my current Meta post a bit
@Stijn yeah, that would save time.

> bumping is 7.6% effective on DSP and 25.7% effective on Webmasters -- meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/a/4245
Yeah, I remember DSP folks grumbling about old questions being brought up. They aren't in the mood for dealing with them at all...
10% on Math. 4.9% on AU. 3.9% on SF, could be the record low.
That is, excluding SO with 2.4% -- but that's not surprising because bumping doesn't bring very much fame there.
FR: Treat WDYT comments (what did you try?) same as WHYT.
(wdyt can also be "what do you think?"... an online collaborator put this in a comment in our LaTeX file, which I kind of wanted to flag...)
1:23 AM
...and it just dawned on me that I wrote a query looking back 365 days at data which has only been recorded for the last 9 months or so. Yay...
Time goes by too quickly, except when it would be convenient.
You'll high five yourself in 3 months.

Spring is for new ideas; winter is for surviving.
1:30 AM
It's March in UTC. Spring in some sense.
equinox is still some time away
Yes, hence in "some sense". I don't really believe that winter begins on Dec 21, either.
And today was nice enough to sit outside grading homework on a laptop. Spring.
Went from sleeting here, to bright warm sunshine... back to sleet. And now that it is dark, the snow is piling up. I start plants inside long, long before I dare leave them out over night.

@Shog9 Yeah. climatestations.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/ny2017.gif top graph. Every other day has been like, 20 or 70, clear or rainy, this entire season.

3:12 AM
@JourneymanGeek but do they look good in orange?
(yes, that's actually how I ended up on the site. Finding orange kitchen supplies that aren't crap can be surprisingly difficult)
why do you need orange kitcen supplies?
High visibility for cooking in the middle of a snow storm?
Gotta be prepared for hunting season, of course.
Because he's "serving inmates that are dangerous to others or themselves", through 3" holes.
3:13 AM
Naw, the wife just likes orange.
I know there's coated orange knives at our local hypermart
Here honey, here's the color you like, and also I've explicitly selected things you can't shiv me with while I sleep.
See, it's win-win
@JasonC cause they're chained to the kitchen. The knives preferably.
Also, I mean who doesn't want a 12-pack of half-sheet pans
3:14 AM
We could probably use that.
I don't. I want a 48-pack.
Go big or go home, I say.
I refuse to believe you actually have room for that many sheet pans in NYC
I have a storage unit. It should have a few cubic feet left in it.
I've always wanted a storage unit with a power supply.
Just enough wattage to run a hot plate and maybe a space heater. Which... I guess is quite a bit really.
Yeah that's like a full 15 amps, heh.
3:20 AM
Just occurred to me that if such things were more common around these parts, they'd be used as grow rooms, and now I understand.
I wish my storage unit had power. Theoretically I could get a light socket -> power outlet adapter, except my lighting fixture gets no power, and I've been playing tag with the electrician there for six years.
Does anybody have any interesting recipes that use a shit load of red miso paste?
Because "1 US shit load" is apparently the smallest unit you can buy.
I have actually never used miso paste in anything. Should probably try it at least once before I die.
I got it because I never used it before either and wanted to use it in a glaze for salmon. Which I did. And it was good. And now I have enough to do it for 3 meals a day every day for the next month.
You should ask on vegetarianism.stackexchange.com - sounds like their kind of thing.
Vegetable Crisco
"If you are what you eat, can vegans eat vegans?"
@JasonC cook noodle in it (miso and water), with shallot
@Telkitty Oh that's a good idea.
I've got some rice noodles here too.
rabbit eats grass, wolves eat rabbit, so using 'you are what you eat' principle, wolves are just grass
And maybe I can do a sesame beef thing with it
3:33 AM
not much of a vegan, are you
What does grass eat
Lol, me, vegan.
well, you do live in NYC
@JasonC sunlight, mostly. Negligible amounts of soil.
I'd guess cows eat more soil eating the grass than the grass itself consumes
So you get some soil eating grass, but more eating meat
Hence, meat-eaters as salt-of-the-earth
Now I'm hungry.
All right bbl going to mix random shit and see if it gives me heartburn or not.
3:43 AM
Be sure to post on Health if it does
Q: I eat cold stuff, now I got sore throat and sneezes :)

Raheel HasanAs a grown up kid, I ended up eating icecream, yogurt and other cold stuff and now I got sore throat, and sneezes. Its getting worse everyday. So can someone plz tell me what to get Over-The-Counter? Or what can I get naturally that doesnt require too much work :P Thanks

speaking of food that you can't get here - crayfish sandwich is one of them ...
no bread?

there is crayfish & there is sandwich, just no crayfish sandwich ... unlike surf and turf which is easy to cook, crayfish sandwich is not as easy to make
also crayfish is called yabbies here
but no yabbie sandwich either

In other news, the sound of an angry cat growling while eating is one of the most ridiculous sounds I've ever heard.
Lol here's the sound
@Telkitty Funny. There's a restaurant in Denver called "The Yabby Hut". They also do not serve crawfish sandwiches.

@Telkitty Huh. I unintentionally made miso soup. I had no idea it was that simple.

sigh my temporary dev machine is dual core i5 with only 4GB of RAM
that's a minor annoyance
That's the specs on my home computer / dev machine / laptop / netflix receiver, which is now going on 7 years old, and has been dragged through 7 burning mans.
Yeah I need a new laptop.
@JasonC miso + hot water?
Yeah that's all it was.
5:21 AM
my x220 is about that specificcation stock
I was playing with miso and noodles and boom, accidental miso soup.
It got upgraded evenually (SSD, 8gb before I was going to hand it to dad, but dad dosen't want to upgrade from his R61 ><)
Oh, yeah, lol. This is a 7-year old 2.3ghz i5, with a 1TB ssd in it that cost about as much as the laptop.

Also, how is that helpful to the person asking of you are not required to explain the vote? How can it have any meaning if it is just s...

Why? Why do people ask stupid questions? Why do people not think? Why do people think asking multiple questions instead of thinking would work? Why? Can stupid questions have any meaning?
Why? Why do people parade this crap in a chatroom? Why do people assume that is helpful? Why are those accompanied by snide remarks? Why? Does be nice mean a different thing in chat?
Why? Why do people add snide comments to snide comments? Why do people think venting isn't okay if you're upset? Why do Dutch flowers act mean to chemicals? Why? Does 'be nice' not need to be in quotes?
8:18 AM
I can't tell if either of those were supposed to be sarcastic
But it seemed like a reasonable response to an uber dumb question
Satirizing the question's style while pointing out the flaws with said style
I meant them to be both sarcastic and a bit serious

Q: Did Jon Skeet ever ask a question on any of the stack exchange Q and A sites?

Simba MeekI might earn "the most idiot guy on the universe" badge for this question, not bad eh? Just curious. Did Jon Skeet ever ask a question on any of the stack exchange Q and A sites?

This would've been a stupid question, but it actually isn't rantish and annoyingish or annoyedish so it's fine by me. Ish.
If I have the time I write a SEDE query for that.
@rene For how many questions annoy me, or for how many questions are rantish?
for both. I have difficulty to get your rantish criteria captured in query parameters
@bjb568 What's the cat up to these days?
8:52 AM
@bjb is prolly trying hard not to be a pebble.
Last time he posted he boarded a Canadian made plane?
I'm not implying anything but I did warn him ...
@rene Nah don't worry. Cats can land on their feet from high above the ground
I think their survivability actually increases after a certain height threshold
that is because the cat has more time to turn around and get "ready for landing", but it works if you compare a 30cm fall to a 1,5m one, not for a 1000m one.....

Yep, they shouldn't be able to hit me with a rock here....
Disclaimer: I blame qwer for giving me this idea.
@Telkitty ^ here, I made you a new avatar :P
@Stijn huh? What IDE?
@ShadowWizard Visual Studio. But I think I was mistaken and it should take C# syntax in a C# project, and it gave an error on foo != null for an unrelated reason ("the expression could not be evaluated")
I gave up and put some temporary code in it to simulate the conditional breakpoint
@M.A.R. trivialish
@Stijn yup, C# syntax for me
@Stijn just write into text file
Made 2GB log file once to catch a bug
@Stijn maybe because the vbscript engine is the only one guaranteed to be available on the OS since 1998 so the IDE can reliable take an dependency on it. That is not true for the other languages?
@rene but he was wrong
10:23 AM
Òh, so am I then?
I think at some point in the past it only supported VB syntax
yeah, that is what I thought
When I tried foo IsNot Nothing, it said it didn't understand IsNot, when I tried foo != null it said it couldn't parse the expression
@Stijn isn't it just <> Nothing? What is IsNot?
@rene let me try that, one sec...
10:27 AM
or at least Is Not Nothing
> Error CS1525: Invalid expression term '>'
It's a C# compiler error, so I think it wants C# code
try Is Not Nothing a space between Is and Not
'Is' is not a valid format specifier
which version of VS?
stackoverflow.com/questions/32332611/… is for a VB.NET project and says to use the "Is" syntax
github.com/dotnet/roslyn/issues/7901 could be related to this Roslyn bug, I'm not doing LINQ in the statement but you never know
cause that's the error I'm seeing with C# syntax
10:43 AM
test == null works for me in VS2010
test !=null works as well
Perhaps something to do with the project properties? The project being recognized as C#? (just a guess)
What you try to debug? @Stijn
this is what I get on a c# project: i.stack.imgur.com/q3Ka2.png
so: works for me, YMMV

@ShadowWizard various reasons. I tried to get into it some time ago, had some idea what to do for Unity for example. But it devolved in such a mess and essential copy-paste from other resources that I didn't really feel like contributing.
1:05 PM
@Bart oh, too bad... wonder what @rene thinks of Documentation these days?
I was surprised I got rep from it a couple of weeks ago. Turned out it was for an example that I edited 6 months ago or so because someone else couldn't get it fixed.
I'm still unclear on what to put on there, given my expertise
Unless I would allow myself to plagiarize MSDN which isn't helping.

@JeremyBanks Thanks. This should distract me for the rest of the day, thus indirectly solving my network diagramming problem.
@Sklivvz At one point I started building a more elaborate XSS exploit, which would let me proxy my browser's requests through the browsers of targeted users who had the compromised pages open. The idea being that I wouldn't know the dev/mod tool interfaces in advance, so I couldn't target them, but this might hypothetically let me explore quickly enough during the window of compromise to find what I needed and use it.
but actually deploying that anywhere would have been way too black-hat.
