At a glance it looks like something for Information Security more than Super User
 
Bit of an overlap there
 
user315433
On one hand, How to force a server to use a specific elliptic curve at the beginning of the handshake via openssl? was migrated from Security to SU, so SU is perhaps better.
 
;p
I think its on topic on SU, and that matters just a little ;)

A self-referential paradox: a Documentation section called Undocumented Features
 
user202362
undocumented features sound like bugs
 
The difference? Undocumented features sometimes get fixed.

I have an idea! Since SE now has a data team, why doesn't the data team do something useful, like write a search engine for SE?
 
user202362
A lot of information on Stackoverflow, for example, are obsolete. Google doesn't always return the most relevant. The most relevant, not coincidentall, usually is also the most recent.
 
When they finish that, they can invade Russia.
 
user202362
I don't think it's that complicated. To make it perfect, yes, it will take A LOT of effort. But there are a few hypothesis: 1) usually there is a life cycle for most maintained software/OS/programming language, and my guess is 2-3 years. 2) answer relevant is highly correlated with those major updates.

@Shog9 Do you have a way to pull the number of frozen and number of deleted rooms on chat.stackoverflow.com? I'm counting now but it's like 7500 pages at 10 seconds each.
Actually I can't even do it, my cookies keep expiring and I need to keep the 10k privs.
 
@JasonC there's probably.... lots
 
user202362

user202362

user202362
that is ... if you could get response to start with
 
....
@JasonC I can help you with that.
so, there's 2792 pages of rooms....
the last page has 7
the rest have 20
 
4:51 AM
7050 pages and I need the frozen / deleted separately. Although... can you not see deleted because of privs?
 
Because if you can only see frozen, I can subtract.
 
seperately
wait, which server?
 
I was looking at chat.se
ahh, can't help you there
an SO mod probably could but my chatmoddly powers are only on the 'shared' chat server
 
5:03 AM
whoo. 14K
 
5:16 AM
Oh yeah I figured it out.
I can view active and active+frozen+deleted page counts when logged in. And in an incognito tab I can view active+frozen. So that's enough to do the math.
1011 active rooms, 63935 frozen, 76037 deleted.

What the Smoke?
 
Too many charcoal from the smoked spam. Need clean-up.
 
@JourneymanGeek on this I wondered if I can abuse the linking feature by leaving a comment with links to my own answers and then delete the comment. That will fill the Linked Posts table but only leaves a trace for moderators.
 
I've never seen anyone do that before
 
Great let's abuse test that ....

> I need to do more testing on it than I can reliably do on a Friday afternoon before a long weekend.
if pre-drunk is a state you shouldn't do coding I better stop altogether ...
 
@rene I got a stumper for you.
This is in progress and heavily mcve'd hence not making sense, but check out this query, where the cte parses close voter ids: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/676500
It works.
Now comment out that select and uncomment the last bit that says "this doesn't" and explain what happens.
(You can put a top 50 in that last query I just linked to the wrong version, doesn't matter. The only difference that matters is the u.userid < w.userid)
@TimStone ^ That one's for you too if you need a head-scratcher.
 
Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value '{"OriginalQuestionIds":[1867861]' to data type int.
 
Yeah
And that string shouldn't be possible, because and s.value like '%"DisplayName"%'.
All evidence suggests that adding u.userid < w.userid to that join causes the cte to attempt the convert without honoring its where clause.
Any other queries from that same cte succeed, which shouldn't be possible if there's truly a parse error.
So wtf is going on?
I was unable to reproduce that effect with test data. It doesn't make any sense.
 
6:56 AM
there's NAA for that, but sure I can help to get it rid faster
 
@JasonC but on duplicate votes that is a valid option: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/676505 your query works, your assumption about datashape is wrong
 
@rene No. I know that string can exist. But it should not pass the like '%"DisplayName"%' condition in the where clause, so a convert on that string should never even be attempted. Not only that, but if that string was finding its way into the convert, those other two commented out queries should also fail.
Remove the and u.userid < w.userid condition and suddenly it works again.
 
yeah, that is because the query plan processor will not evaluate that userid column as it is nowhere used then.
need moar coffee
 
@rene Nope. I thought of that. But data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/676508 works.
 
sigh
@JasonC heh, one of your example questions makes me wish I had the ability to bitchslap smack someone with a rolled up newspaper over the internet.
 
7:10 AM
@rene And it actually gets weirder: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/676509 -- see comments.
This is driving me crazy. And it almost, almost feels like a SQL server bug, but I'm not confident enough to assume that yet.
 
Must be something caused by the CTE as this simply works as expected: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/676505
 
Yeah. It's super weird. I've used that parsing style in the past, it always works. It's something with the cte, its where clause, and something about that join. It's frustrating too because I haven't yet been able to construct any small test tables that make it happen. I can't find a minimal test case that fails in the same way.
(The and charindex(',', s.value) > 1 is unnecessary, really, that was just something I threw in there when trying to fix this current problem, btw.)
@TimStone Prev. ping continued, last example is ^^^ (data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/676509). Read the above convo, and be mystified.
Anyways
It's way past my bed time
Later
@JourneymanGeek (PS: Like 10 of those questions made me want to slap somebody, lol)
 
lol
@JasonC I'm a lot more patient
also I find a lot of the MSO meta questions assume context
 
 
2 hours later…
9:24 AM
@JasonC I played a bit further here. It looks like the query plan optimizer assumes it can safely bring the where clause to the CTE query producing this: Filter(WHERE:([Expr1001]=(100297) AND STRING_SPLIT.[value] like N'%,"DisplayName":%')) Expr1001 is the convert. If that order was reversed it would work, assuming it would short-circuit.
I couldn't find a query hint that tells the optimizer to either do that reversal or don't optimize it like that. Could make a good question on SO I think.
Maybe not optimal but could be a workaround: use try_cast

Hi chat
 
I thought iOS has multiple drafts? Not sure though since I don't have iOS

@Fawad Most desktop text editors have an option to save text. All of them, now that I think of it. And Google Docs.
 
@Elephant correct word draft. There isn't showing "saved as draft" ;(

Eagle Scout is a serious thing, though.
 
It is? Never made it to the boy scouts, so I'm unaware of its importance, if any
 
user315433
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The designation "Eagle Scout" was founded over one hundred years ago. Only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process. The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill. Since its founding, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men. Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges. The Eagle Scout must demonstrate Scout Spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath and Law, service...

I have, but I don't remember if that was enough on its own or if I had to manually enable the eggs first.

Q: What Easter Eggs do the chat sites have?

MosheAccording to balpha, the SE chat sites may have individual Easter eggs, depending on the site. If you find them, please post. Edit: Because it's so easy to make this stuff up, a screenshot as proof would be nice. (Although Photoshop ain't that hard either...)
