Stack has a great parental leave policy... fortunately it doesn't require that I leave entirely. I'll be around for social stuff rather than work.
 
Ah... stupid me >_<

@Somewhat well she is officially not working, so it makes some sense. :)
Through guess she can still do such things unofficially.

@TravisJ I like the landing a plane example. In an Airbus near you soon ....
 
@rene Nothing like zeroing it out.

The 10 year anniversary post has also been unfeatured. I wonder if we'll get another contest
the DAG team updates doesn't mention planning for it either, although it does mention winterbash
 
8:24 AM
I have the 22th gold badge on MSO :D
 
what is "OpenID removal" supposed to mean in the product team updates?
 
I think a few specific forms of open id were being removed
 
@Derpy killing any routes to openid.se
 
still not clear.
I am pretty sure I am not the only one whose account is SE based - I don't use federation with other auth providers.

@rene oh, right, I had forgotten that one.
I think I already suggested back then that the post could use some rewritting to clarify what it was supposed to mean (especially because we seem to keep forgetting people in the network aren't supposed to be 100% developers, and for many of them "openId" probably is just one more empty name).
 
9:02 AM
wait so the "stack exchange" login using only email and password is going away?
 
Thanks, crossreferencing the two posts I think I get what they probably mean.
@Magisch If I read correctly, they are going to block external OpenID providers and switch the OpenID based SE only login platform to use OAuth instead.
 
@Magisch no, it is no longer using openid.se to offer that option. They moved that feature under their own control
 
cause I only have an email login attached to my account
i log into stack exchange using my email address and a password I set
 
yes, that will still work
 
Yep, I think that only mean that the "SE only" account will use a different "infrastructure" instead.
Obviously, to understand that you probably need to know what OpenID is.
 
9:07 AM
yes, that is true
 
@Derpy which is no longer OpenID provider. Just plain email/password which can't be used to log into other sites anymore.
 
I believe those who only use OpenID login have been emailed to add alternate login to prevent them from getting locked out
 
9:23 AM
Only those using non standard openid i.e. not in the premade list.
 
9:38 AM
I see the local erinaceus is felling especially "witty" today
 
@Derpy Never make 'promises' you can't keep... such a thing sounds like a bad idea.
Like those signs theme parks have '30 minutes waiting time from here' and then you're behind an entire class of small school children + some less abled people that can use the wheelchair access and you end up waiting 45 minutes to an hour and have your mood ruined :P
 
@Tinkeringbell oh, nice, you just gave me an idea. Since you mentioned theme parks, can I just ask you something out of curiosity?
 
Sure...
(I'm only in here when I'm bored anyways so any conversation is better than none :) )
 
As I said, I am just curious because you mentioned parks and waiting times.
Are we the only country that is so lame, pathetic and greedy that theme parks have started selling premium "skip waiting line" tokens or it is a common practice everywhere?
 
@Derpy Nah, you have them here too, they're called 'fast lane passes' at the theme park I'm closest to. They come in bronze, silver and gold, and can cost as much as 50 euro's for a day.
 
9:53 AM
@Tinkeringbell they are "day" based?
ours are "number of uses" based
 
And I know Disneyland Paris offers fast passes, but those are 'free', you just pick them up at a machine in the park itself and then return at the appointed time
 
hey @tink
 
@Derpy It looks like they are. You make a reservation with your phone, and can then return at the appointed time. If you take e.g. bronze, your waiting time will be the same as the actual (expected) waiting time, only you don't have to spend those 45 minutes in line, you can go and do something else and then check in at the fast lane at the appointed time. It's a weird system.
 
you're back from your vacation :D
 
@Magisch Yeah... ;)
 
9:55 AM
@Tinkeringbell that is a different thing altogether then. Ours are more of the shady type.
 
At least for now. If y'all tire me out too much, I'm taking another :P
@Derpy Hm? How do yours work?
 
need more colorful parrots
 
@Tinkeringbell "Don't want to wait in line for 2 hours under the sun while your kids pester you the whole time? Just buy a skip line token and skip the line now!"
 
what if so many people buy skip line tokens that there's a lineskipper line?
 
@Derpy Ah, yeah, that's ... going to be problematic.
@Magisch They raise the prices, as that means the line tokens are too cheap :P
Or they add a bronze,silver,gold token system :P
 
10:00 AM
@Magisch well... it is 80€ for an "infinite times" daily skip token, multiply that for # of family members and you have your reply
 
We usually go to theme parks on 'regular' days. There's usually a few school classes and not many other people. No need to skip the lines ;)
 
most would only buy a three uses 25€ one. And you still need to buy one for each family member, because you can't split the rides on multiple peoples
@Tinkeringbell that was my strategy too, back when I had time to go there.
 
@Derpy :/ Talk about an expensive day out... usually entrance fees alone are also already near 30 euros (if not more)
@Derpy I have another strategy too :P A friend that uses a wheelchair. But that kills your back too.
 
pro tip, if you plan to go to amusement parks, go during weekdays outside of school holidays
usually empty then
10am on a random wednesday you never have to wait in line
 
@Magisch That's those 'regular' days I meant ;)
 
10:04 AM
oh
 
We once went to Walibi, and my little brother was the only kid in the 'small kids' section of the theme park. Had an employee that started up the rides for him, let him ride as long as he wanted, then walked with him to the next :P
 
@Tinkeringbell yeah last time I was in a water park we spent 7 hours just chain riding that one wildwater raft
where you usually wait an hour
the platform where it finished was designed to allow you to skip directly into the new one
 
@Magisch oh, once I was so lucky on a work day that the park was so empty that the staff didn't even bother to make you dismount some rides....
 
@Magisch Nice! I never was one to stay in one ride that long. I was able to spent entire days in ... it's a weird thing, let me look up a picture if I can find one.
 
@Derpy the wildwater raft was just amazing
 
10:07 AM
no need to make you go back in line when the line doesn't exist in the first place
 
depending on how people in your raft moved it, it was different every time
 
That was so fun when I was younger :P
 
thats cool
 
@Magisch wait... what? WHY you mentioned wildwater raft? That was exactly the ride I was on
(ok, it was more of a boat than a raft, but still...)
 
we had this circular raft
 
10:10 AM
@Magisch anything like these?
if that is the case, yep, we are basically talking about the same thing
 
@Derpy I really, really dislike those :P I always end up on the wrong side of such rafts
 
@Derpy yes! exactly these
we rode it literally all day we were there
usually the line is so long and this is so fun in the summer
 
This is my favorite summer ride Look at the top right: see those two yellow cannon-like looking things? That's where you have to be, to aim at other people in the ride! :P
 
@Tinkeringbell are they coin operated?
 
@Derpy Nope :D
(at least, last time I was there they weren't )
 
10:22 AM
@Tinkeringbell I guess then we still win the "pathetic-est clowns" crown then
 
OOOH! I didn't play that in a very long time. Perhaps I could do that again tonight :)
 
think I saw someone trying doing that. In Roblox.
 
@Derpy there is a ride at the park where I went to where you can pay 1€ per 30s of spraying water at people on the ride
like outside water cannons
 
@Magisch .... by now, I am starting to fear you may live next door to me.
I expect to see a big cactus enter the office door any minute now
 
10:26 AM
you're not in germany, are you?
 
no, still somewhere in Europe but not there.
 
then there's no danger
 
10:42 AM
@Derpy France?
 
@ShadowWizard you already got enough info for today :P
furthermore, it should be clear.
 
Not as crystal
 
@ShadowWizard Start from the Big Ben, second to the right, and straight on till morning.
 
Japan?
 
Feb 18 '14 at 14:41, by SPArchaeologist
@ShadowWizard - would you believe me if I said that I am a tea ceremony student?
 
10:53 AM
@ShadowWizard Since when did Japan move to Europe? :P
 
@Tinkeringbell dunno but @Derpy said morning and Japan is where morning begins first. ;)
 
@ShadowWizard I thought that was some island near New Zealand? (As they always show up on the news each year as being the first to celebrate New Year) :P
 
@Tinkeringbell he also know that I can be very Discord-like at times
 
@Tinkeringbell well Japan is the Land of the Rising Sun, no? 🌞
 
11:16 AM
may have to ask a question about Linux, timeshift and clamav / clamtk. Is superuser fitting enough?
 
Dunno
 
could be pretty easy. Or pretty hard, I don't know
that said, I am always pretty uncertain on where questions about Mint are supposed to go.
 
@Tinkeringbell Kiribati, Samoa, and Tonga.
 
also, unrelated, why is the parrot in the Den?
 
why is the flower in the Den???
 
11:35 AM
well, it is common knowledge by now that the flower is uncouth and probably related to an anagram of "serial murder". But the parrot looked so innocent...
 
@Derpy I got bored ;)
And kidnapped
And the Den could use some culture? :P
 
@Tinkeringbell they are a lost cause, I've already tried to teach them the pony's ways
 
@Derpy she was summoned and bound.
Needed powerful spells but we did it! :D
 
@PaulWhite Exactly those ;)
@ShadowWizard Nothing can bind me ;)
I'm just allowing you to think that :P
 
@Tinkeringbell start talking about ponies or other heartwarming shows. They get bored pretty quickly
 
11:39 AM
@Derpy Oh, but that's not how you educate people :P
 
@Derpy she teach us the Ways of the Bird.
 
the button is still there.....
 
@ShadowWizard Next lesson: How to be a frenzied ball of feathers XD
 
Woohoo!
 
It's really simple: Log out and do some stuff in real life :P
 
11:43 AM
@Tinkeringbell This is harder than you'd think.
 
@Mithrandir I only lasted three days. Tell me about it ;)
 
That's longer than I did.
 
Mithranhere, Mithranthere Mithraneverywhere
 
I literally set up an extension to block SE for myself. It didn't help :P
 
That's where 'log out' comes in. That at least requires you to make a conscious decision to log in again and gives you a few seconds to realise 'no, not what I want right now'.
 
11:46 AM
I did that too... problem is, I have the password saved in. *rolls eyes at self*
 
@Mithrandir That can be easily cleared ;)
 
Sure, but then I'm not sure I'll remember it when I want to get back in :P
@Magisch I didn't personally flag, but there were flags raised.
 
@EKons It got enough exposure. While there's a maximum amount of time a post can be featured before the system automatically removes the tag, it's there just to catch someone forgetting to remove it manually. I tend to remove it once a post has seen substantial engagement because it makes way for others. I don't know if any are planned, but I don't need to, it's just the way I handle them.
 
Imagi-nation's today episode is another re-air.
and the Ingress anime episode, too
probably going to skip it then
 
12:10 PM
Do you keep track of all of this with post it notes?
never miss an opportunity to make post puns :P
 
congratulation, you just earned a PUNdit badge!
 
12:26 PM
@Somewhat It's almost magic :P
 
@Tinkeringbell it is almost friendship!
 
@Derpy Friendliness is cool. I don't like people on SE unilaterally deciding I'm their friend though, just because I act friendly towards them...
 
I'm fairly sure tim's completly sick of all the post puns
I'm also fairly sure his kids will be once they hit secondary school and every single computer nerd in their grade starts making post puns :D
 
@Magisch Time for you to move on to a post-post-pun era then? :P
 
Hi, I'm your friend! Let me share my downvotes...
 
12:29 PM
I don't ping him with these on purpose because I imagine getting pinged for something so low brow would be classed as pure annoyance
 
@Somewhat Heh. Just make it community wiki then :P
@Magisch Getting pinged in general is annoying ;)
Unless it's a reply or people actually need me...
 
@Tinkeringbell I need you!
:P
 
@ShadowWizard creep :P
For what? XD
 
Umm... Bird food!
 
If you're going to ping me because you need me, use your chat character limit and make it so I can just read a single message and see why you need me... why don't people ever understand that?
Conversation from yesterday:
coworker: Hey Tink!
me: Hi! What's up?
coworker: Oh, nothing much, how was your weekend?
me: Great, but if you don't actually need me, I have some programming to do...
coworker: Oh, no, I have this bug I need you to fix
me: details please?
Soooo tiring.
I can understand a little smalltalk, but not using IM when we're both working from home...
 
12:35 PM
 
@Mgetz Yeah.
I get 'this is wrong'... okay, cool. I can probably fix it IF I KNOW WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE!
Turns out I had to replace two parentheses...
 
Smalltalk is an object-oriented, dynamically typed, reflective programming language. Smalltalk was created as the language to underpin the "new world" of computing exemplified by "human–computer symbiosis". It was designed and created in part for educational use, more so for constructionist learning, at the Learning Research Group (LRG) of Xerox PARC by Alan Kay, Dan Ingalls, Adele Goldberg, Ted Kaehler, Scott Wallace, and others during the 1970s. The language was first generally released as Smalltalk-80. Smalltalk-like languages are in continuing active development and have gathered loya...
 
The rest was just someone messing up somewhere when manually transferring code changed from a development to test to acceptation environment..
 
Anyway, why am I receiving llamas on DeviantArt?
 
@Tinkeringbell Go, Pidgybell, I chose you!
@Somewhat I think I once heard trading llamas is a sort of meme there
 
12:43 PM
@Tinkeringbell But let me sing you the song of my people (an hour of middle aged coworker's life story) before getting to the point!
 
@Magisch Heh. I've been back for just a few hours and I'm already ranting again... there goes good intentions, I guess.
Can we go back to discussing theme parks? :P
 
@Tinkeringbell don't visit the TAS meta room then :p
 
@Magisch Already caught up there. Sorry I wasn't there to help out?
Seems like you all did fine without me though. I should take more breaks ;)
 
Theme Park and Theme Hospital
 
I think I heard a co-worker mention Theme Hospital once... it's a game, right?
 
12:57 PM
yep :)
 
What's your opinion on it? Coworker described it as fun(ny)
 
I think it's indeed a fun(ny) game, like the disease name and its treatment...
 
I might try it sometime then... Although I don't know where to get the time for it :P
 
I prefer transport tycoon
 
TT (and its OpenTTD)'s also fun~
 
1:02 PM
@AndrasDeak I played it's open source counterpart, OpenTTD, a long time ago. I'm not too good at it, just like I wasn't too great at SimCity... I always end up with underdeveloped parts
 
Coal trains ftw...
 
coal is good, it doesn't go bad
 
anyway, there's a recent spiritual succesor to Theme Hospital:
Two Point Hospital is a 2018 business simulation game developed by Two Point Studios and published by Sega for Linux, MacOS, and Microsoft Windows. A spiritual successor to Bullfrog Productions' 1997 game Theme Hospital, Two Point Hospital puts players in the role of a hospital administrator tasked with constructing and operating a hospital (and, by extension, an empire of hospitals in the fictional Two Point County, where the game is set) with the goal of curing patients of fictitious, comical ailments. The game was designed and developed by some of the creators of Theme Hospital, including Mark...
 
I can still remember the joy when it was finally time for maglev...
 
though I can't say much because I haven't played it
 
1:04 PM
yeah, I keep seeing that game in GOG newsletters
 
1:29 PM
I'm probably not the first one to mention it, but there are a lot of blatantly off-topic questions on Meta.SE today ...
We do have a new 'Featured on Meta' post, but that couldn't be the reason, could it?
 
umm, that could be the reason...
still not as bad as inbox message though...
 
1:41 PM
yeah, I remember that. That was the last time I ran out of flags (I had <3k rep back then)
 
I don't remember it... can I get a story?

thanks for explaining your habits :-)

and in meantime, totally unrelated... I found Konata singing Cha-la-head
 
@Tinkeringbell Heh. Sounds like we're discussing nohello again! Didn't you learn from workplace.stackexchange.com/a/119200/25356 that even quietly finding this frustrating makes you a terrible human being who deserves to be shamed? :P
 
@MarkAmery :P I don't do 'nohello'. I just put my hello in the same message ;)
And I can also live with a 'hello'
and then a problem
But not hey, hi, how are you, how was your weekend... uhh, why are chatting? :P
 
@Tinkeringbell HTTP 1.1 HELO?
aaand nerd joke fail
 
@Mgetz Perhaps :P
 
@Tinkeringbell That still is nohello! nohello.com shows the same thing, after "If you feel it's brusque to simply say "Hi" and ask the question, you can do something like this:"
 
3:24 PM
@Tinkeringbell just require people who get hello comments to respond with: 100 CONTINUE
3
 
@MarkAmery Oh, I guess. Still. I don't want to force my co-worker to do 'nohello' :P
 
or have a bot do it automatically
 
Just not discuss the weekend etc. for around 10/20 messages before even coming to the point.
Gotta run or I'll miss a bus ;)
Okay, made it ;)
 
@Derpy not as epic as that, but Conan also sang Truth
spoiler on the joke: Conan Edogawa is the main character of an anime Detective Conan, and Truth is one of the opening song by TWO-MIX...
and the singer of TWO-MIX is Minami Takayama, who is also the voice actor for Conan...
 
3:47 PM

stackoverflow.com/users/1535357/mehdico is a curiosity that I don't understand. Can't tell if the account is being used for nefarious purposes or not. There's a wild change in user activity this year - a wholesale shift from asking only questions to only answers (often plagiarised), plus the curiosity of posting "Thank you, it works now!" verbatim on a slew of random posts on the same day. Have flagged, but am trying to puzzle out myself what's going on.
I've never seen anything like it; there's a weird mixture of actions that seem like a spambot and actions that seem like a legit user.
WTF, there's definitely something strange happening here. I used SEDE to look for other comments with the exact same text, and the only other one I found since June was this one: stackoverflow.com/questions/48432846/…
In which some answerer randomly comments on his own answer to, uh, thank himself for it? Only half an hour after the weird slew of comments with the same text by the first user I linked to.
So now I've got two users, both with a history of contributions that makes them look like human beings, both suddenly engaging in the same random, bizarre behaviour within half an hour of each other

@Dragonrage Yeah, have done. Meanwhile am trying to uncover more weirdness using SEDE

MSO and MSE are Something Bad on Questions. Other metas and mains seem okay.

Ah, I blame shog9
 
fair
 
Sites instability is getting in the way of my procrastination
can we fire shog9 and hire someone that knows what they're doing?
or spend the money on something more productive, like buying everyone on Stack Exchange pet brine shrimp?
 
would be interesting to graph tweet count over time relative to each outage
find the peak whiniest hours not to deploy changes in
 
What's more interesting, people complaining on twitter... or....
 
I dunno if Shog9 still reads what's going on here (not pinging him!) but if he's in need of a smile, he should have a look here

Yea, that dip shit.
He's worse than Shog9; but, brine shimp are cooler than Shog9.
To put things into perspective.
 
It sounds you're walking on thin ice (slippery slope, etc.) guys :3
 
@EvanCarroll Shog9 is actually a nice guy...
(Polite, communicative, and good natured)
 
Perhaps, but I'm totally putting "Better than the guy who invented Seamonkeys" on my business cards now
 
he sometimes has to execute unpleasant tasks, but that's his job not the person itself.
 
^ Yes, he is, and I don't see any reason why he should be subject of discussion here!

@Shog9 :D :D :D
@Shog9 As you're here anyway and need a laugh:
