@bjb568 If you were going for Math/CS combo, UIUC could be a good place. The CS part is well reputed (not that I know much about it), and math just made headlines of some sort. Naturally, a state school with 1200 math majors is not everyone's idea of the perfect academic program...

A mod on two sites appears to be on the way out...

> I tried subtle, but it did not happen. Please delete all my accounts. Sorry, but at this point I'm simply tired of dealing with a lot of the truly painful users and I rarely answer now as a result. This site, and all of the related ones, has simply lost its attraction to me. I don't get paid for this work and a way too large segment of the population is simply not worth my effort. All grief, no benefit. Why should I do this?

So, after all these years, I want my accounts gone. Yes, before you ask, the last exchange on Pets put me there. I came within a hair of deleting his account and tha
 
@Gerry yeah
@Gerry ow.
I hope I never end up like that

6:08 AM
lol. Today seems quiet.
 
Yeah, spammy saturday
I just made myself breakfast, brb.
 
lol
I have more closevotes than answers ;p
(Well, that's every day on SU but...)
 
6:42 AM
@JourneymanGeek close voting is really the only thing I'm really capable off
 
lol
Lots of answers too by the looks of it
 
On MSE it was easy to simply go over all unanswered questions and do some SQL fu.
 
ah lol
Most of the fun "moderation" related questions seem to be asked before ._.
not sure what else falls within what I know here ;p
 
you could ask something specific about the SE server rack? I'm sure Nick will share a picture with his answer.
 
lol
Most of that stuff is rediculously well documented ;)
 
6:55 AM
I learned that I can tie my servers with a network cable. Never considered that
 
0_0
and that you should never plug a network cable UPS into itself?
 
Yeah, that too ;)
 
Most of my questions here are bug, and wider policy things
actually more the latter
 
20K folder RedHat meta.stackexchange.com/questions/294757/… /cc @Bart @ShadowWizard (wake up, will you)
 
lol
I already threw that a closevote.
... twice...
 
6:59 AM
twice?
You have a sock?
 
guy asked the same question for "linux 6.8"
 
ah
 
lol. He asked twice
I told him "read the help and tour and there's no such thing as linux 6.8"
 
Linux 6 to 8
 
We're in linux... 4 now? ;p
 
7:10 AM
I dist-upgrade to Debian Jessie and now the kernel is on 3.16
 
@rene debian just lags behind somewhat tho
 
Yeah, I don't mind that. I think I started with that distro back in early 2000 and the few tries to switch to something different never made me really happy.
 
Which I totally respect ;p
Granted I'm the opposite
 
I expect stable to be what it advertises
 
yup
(I run fedora and ubuntu myself)
 
7:16 AM
Keep in mind that this is a server box, most of the time I putty into it
 
lol
I kinda run fedora on my dedi
KVM ubuntu VM atop that
 
If I would use it as a desktop I might try other distro's but I'm not a linux guy
 
I've never met an OS I didn't like... other than OS X
 
When I was helping a friend with an Mac I asked: how do I start a shell here so I can type commands instead of having to wade through all this GUI stuff?
 
lol
I'm mostly on windows on the desktop these days

8:51 AM
@rene rare case where OP deleted...
Though now he can also undelete any time... :/
 
9:16 AM
Should there be means to reduce CV reviews more quickly?
 
@M.A.R. what does that mean?
 
@rene in every major site, CV queue seems to contains the most items to review
Which is kinda natural, considering 3 people need to finish a review at least
BRB
 
@M.A.R. On SO there already is something in place. That keeps the queue now around 10K
 
@ShadowWizard Not that likely
Its not spam, its extreme cluelessness
 
9:32 AM
@rene Well, the issue on SO is much more extreme than anywhere else. I need to read up on what exactly has been done and what's been proposed about this
 
olo
 
@M.A.R. SO essentially runs completely differently than everywhere else.
Least in terms of scale
full edit review queues make me boggle
 
@JourneymanGeek true, but still, risk exists...
 
@ShadowWizard also already closed, with no chance of reopening
Feels like we should not worry too much about "what if"s especially in this specific situation
 
9:36 AM
@JourneymanGeek tru dat
 
Also he did it twice ;p
So, he probably should get the idea, eventually
 
lol
for some reason our mod election did a number on our queue
which is odd cause none of the candidates actually did last minute stat inflation
 
@JourneymanGeek You mean the queue increased during the election?
 
@M.A.R. it was obliterated.
 
9:48 AM
That's natural; people are excited, and review and flag instead of peeing
 
We went from a few hundred items to... I think it was at zero, now its at low teens
 
@JourneymanGeek Like, with a bazooka?
 
@M.A.R. like a rod from an orbital dog.
 
10:04 AM
> I don't exactly hang around watching the HNQ list all the time
slackers ...
 
@M.A.R. I pee anyway, excited or not excited
please delete, yogurt crap/spam/trolling @rene @Bart
 
delete vote administered, expect site health to be restored soon-ish
 
@Shog you know the sandbox will be auto protected again as soon as answer there is deleted, right? (i.e. it's pointless to unprotect it, unless you deployed some magic there?)
 
@rene not health, just be bit more clean
 
10:18 AM
@ShadowWizard I assume ineptitude, not malice usually.
 
@JourneymanGeek you're very good... or innocent... :P
(but yeah, it's 50/50 chance IMO)
Still, if on purpose it's trolling hence abusive to the site.
 
@ShadowWizard Oh, bit of both ;p
Also, life is too short to worry about people like that ;p
If I'm right. Meh, its done. if I'm wrong, someone's getting moar flags.
 
11:09 AM
Congratulations!

This was only a test, designed to make sure you were paying attention. You passed. This post has already been removed, but if it hadn't, your flag would have helped to ensure that it was. Thanks!
Lol^
 
11:35 AM
@Fawad o.o
Audits are major pains in the ass for most people
 
lol
Agreed
 
@JourneymanGeek you DO exuberantly lol in chat.
 
@M.A.R. something that has been remarked on many times on root access.

@Bart once said by @Telkitty "best troll is in which you don't know you are getting trolled"

@SmokeDetector Why LATCH is all capitalized..?
 
@Elephant ^ See how wise Smokey is
 
¯_(ツ)_/¯
 
12:36 PM
@Smokey can predict the future and reply before being asked
@M.A.R. nah, I like audits
Feeling good when passing them.
 
@ShadowWizard We were talking about legitimate humans O.O
Legitimate robo-reviewers?
 
@M.A.R. oh, so about who?
 
Is there a certification for that?
 
@M.A.R. I see, well, for them audits are indeed pain in the ass, agreed. :D
 
@ShadowWizard Considering the majority of the population of this chat, the bar is too high for anyone o.o
 
12:42 PM
@M.A.R. you mean we are all legit humans here? o_O
 
@ShadowWizard No, none of us are

@πάνταῥεῖ nice effort, but that is 100% crap, no point trying to polish it. Or should I say NO POINT TRYING TO POLISH THAT TURD. ;)
 
@Shadow You're probably right.
 
@πάνταῥεῖ anyway, if you really want to help that guy, his problem is the security of the software, that requires a disk to run. Many programs do that to prevent illegal downloads.
So whatever he downloaded is not meant to be downloaded.
Feel free to spoon feed him, I'm not going to do that. :)
 
@ShadowWizard he's probably from my region
 
@JourneymanGeek ?
 
also I am reminded of the joke about the duck that walks into the bar, and asks if they have oranges..
 
3:20 PM
@ShadowWizard Yes, I also thought of that. I refrain from recommending them burning a disk image.
 
@ShadowWizard longman's a big regional publisher
 
@πάνταῥεῖ not sure it will help, but yeah... might work
@JourneymanGeek oh, you know what he downloaded?
 
I know of longman
btw. THATS a troll
so, less feeding, more nuking piz
 
@JourneymanGeek tell that to @David... :/
 
3:34 PM
So someone download illegal copy of software, then demand help in a totally irrelevant site... can it get more rude than that??
 
tbh, it feels a lot like recycle
no real way to check tho
 
Emphasis on demand.

@ShadowWizard sure. I need to wipe that post when I get time; unprotecting is temporary.
 
user315433
Wipe? But... historical significance.
 
user315433
Maybe lock as such and start a new one?
 
user315433
The kbd fortresses, for one thing.
 
5:39 PM
@Gerry Shog hates fun :(
 
user315433
While the mass-replacement of URLs is a thing, how about en.m.wikipedia.org -> en.wikipedia.org ...
 
Pretty good idea
 
@Shog9 wipe the sandbox? Not a good idea, people will use existing questions to test stuff. IMO sandbox is good to have.
Maybe start a new sandbox though. That will also get auto protected quite fast.
Can't @Oded hack some "anti auto protect" lock for those cases?
@Gerry historical?? It's used very often to this day. I'm using it myself to test stuff.
 
@rene ?
@bjb568 good pic! You took it?
 
5:54 PM
@bjb568 Flying kitty
 
@bjb568 Nice.
 
@ShadowWizard No, it's from the interwabs.
 
@bjb568 oh
 
It's a picture of the realm of poptart kats.

@ShadowWizard yeah, that was caused by one the Somkey/MS userscripts. They use the same popup in chat as SE does so I assumed it was an SE issue.
