Is toilet paper... tissue?
I once had a conversation with someone about TP and I mentioned that we (NA) have 3 and 4 ply, he said that they only had one ply - sandpaper.
Oh god, we used to have that at a coworking for a previous job. One play, recycled toilet paper that was beige ... god that was unpleasant
@ShadowWizard we think it's cleaner. Also what did y'all do before paper?
I've seen it, little interleaved 3"x4" sheeets.
The dog.
1:05 PM
@JourneymanGeek Papyrus
Generally, tissue paper is more sensitive as it's used for the nose. Toilet paper is used, well, in toilets. :D
Here we only use TP to dry our hands
1:22 PM
Here... well, it's mostly interchangeable, as long as you feel okay...
As long as it dires and cleans up...
@Rob My office toilet paper have 2 layer one and I have not seen 4 layer yet. Only seen 1/2 and 3
I am sure I have discussed about toilet paper layer before
What are we talking about? I mean ....
@rene We're taking about what happens to plants after humans kill them.
1:28 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ crappy end
hmm.... code takes 2 minutes to load, but only on first run, then it's cached. Should I put it on production?
First visitor will have to wait 2 minutes.
Fine with me
@ArtOfCode don't get mad, but I though it may be worth to add another answer with some background you have missed to this question
@ShadowWizard Sometimes you have to adjust the expectations
Guess I should take a look in the server logs, see how often is restarts... I think only once every few months. ;)
@ShadowWizard Make the first visitor "Community bot"
1:30 PM
@ShadowWizard can't you do some profiling?
@ShadowWizard is it old-style asp.net?
@andmyself it's not interchangeable. One is designed to be strong and avoid breaking up from snot rockets and the other is designed to break up and be non clogging. So don't substitute one for the other, and if you do don't rollback!
@andmyself hehe
@rene nope
@rene nope. node.js code that need to grab list of 30k files or so. (names only)
I should have saved the file names in database too, but, well... I didn't.
@ShadowWizard Someone is trying to find out about the music I downloaded
@ShadowWizard uggh ... that is never going to fly. Disk access is slow specially for folders traversals
no music there just boring documents
1:34 PM
That's worse. My report cards and exam scores
Are you studying me, exceedingly Turkish alien?
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ hey how are you now?
@AnkitSharma the waffles hat
@ShadowWizard Huh?
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I see you! Go read that book again!
@PrincessLuna I shoudl ahve got it on mopvies.se
@ShadowWizard You're right actually!
@AnkitSharma Better than fine, busy as hell
Back to the realm of non-toilet paper for me
1:40 PM
@Catija did it, not @Tink. :)
always blame the parrot...
@ShadowWizard It's Mgetz's fault.
@Mgetz isn't a parrot last time I checked.
1:41 PM
!!/blame᠎ ‍​᠎᠎᠎
@Mithrandir It's Tinkeringbell's fault.
@AnkitSharma ok?
You cheat!
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ don't forget to visit you fav SE place
@ShadowWizard what did I do!?
1:42 PM
how is that possible?!
!!/blame᠎ ‍​᠎᠎᠎
@Mithrandir It's Tinkeringbell's fault.
@Mgetz blamed for rolling back something. ;)
@ShadowWizard ??
!!/blame᠎ ‍​᠎᠎᠎
1:42 PM
@EKons It's Tinkeringbell's fault.
@PrincessLuna the revision where someone added the guess for how to get the hat
bah... Smokey has blamed tink 3 times in a row... we're lucky! :P
!!/blame᠎ ‍​᠎᠎᠎
@AnkitSharma It's Tinkeringbell's fault.
It's definitely Tink's fault...
1:43 PM
@EKons or.. someone with access to Smokey codebase did something... cough
!!/blame᠎ ‍​᠎᠎᠎
@Mithrandir It's green parrot's fault.
@Mithrandir It's Tinkeringbell's fault.
@ShadowWizard Running since 07:46:25 UTC (5 hours, 57 minutes, 14 seconds)
1:43 PM
@ShadowWizard you do realize that you can't tell the bot to do something from the codebase, eh?
Now @Tinkeringbell have to accept the fault
Nah, nobody touched the codebase
So some voodoo, for sure! :D
I hope I don't need to !!/blame again and you can see for yourselves who is responsible
@ShadowWizard the op edits after comment one?
@Mithrandir always ;)
adds Tink to the wheel of blame
wheel of blame? how did you remember that?!
@PrincessLuna yeah. Anonymous visitor added the guess here and it was somehow approved, probably by people who aren't really aware of what's clearly written both in the answer and in comments below it.
(no guessing.)
I am loosing hops to get any new hat and too hungry
Which hat I can eat now O.o
1:47 PM
@AnkitSharma take my waffle, I use the toilet paper now. :P
one that's still fresh, obviously! ;-)
I'm going to ask a P&F question, @Ankit, maybe that'll help
@Mithrandir People and Factions?
Some hats are recycled... right? Like.... Waffles hat...
@Mithrandir not sure, only iof you accpet my answer and don't vote but on movies everybody loves me so not possible to get 0 votes ;)
1:48 PM
@andmyself only the name and look, not the triggers.
@andmyself like... GODDAMMIT SUN WUKONG!!! argh...
@andmyself some? Most.
@AnkitSharma never heard of that...
wait.. well, not in English. lol
@EKons not sure how to get it, I came as near as +5/-3 without trying
1:49 PM
Dunno. I haven't checked this year's hat list, so I only know from seeing the hats here, or there, or...
@AnkitSharma I think it's -5 or something
@Mithrandir I think @b_jonas won't go to movies :P
@EKons yeah -5/+5 but my nearest one is +5/-3
A: Winter Bash 2018 Knitting

Ankit SharmaIn tribute of 6 to 8 Weeks:

Or even suddenly getting the hats for me even without knowing the trigger...
@Derpy he is into some anti movies.se cult/
1:51 PM
I don't like that hat
@AnkitSharma to be frank, you don't really need to boast such a hat
I suggested +3/-3 but they changed it to +5/-5
although there have been more than a few... beggings over the WB2018 room, lol
@EKons But I suggested it with chilies rather then monkey
A: A Moose, Some Silly Putty ... And A Desperate Plea For Help

Ankit SharmaWhy have a hat when you can have a tiara? So I decided to make a tiara, Eco-friendly to be specific: Ingredients: Green chilies: (when you go Eco-friendly, you surely need some green: Thread: (white worked fine for me) Knotting skills: Test subject: My dotted head friend go...

well... that could make a bit more sense, like "I'm keeping this controversial thing up and I stand by it!"
1:54 PM
But it will shame if I don't get the hat I suggested myself :D
but -5/+5 is a bit too much
@SE hey I said +3/-3 did you hear me properly or not?
so... so far, I haven't begged for a few downvotes anywhere
so... I guess we can safely make a post for Sun Wukong over Meta.SO or something
but your answer has to be something that does deserve +5, alright?
2:03 PM
Scratch that question :P
meh, the idea itself does definitely deserve +5 imo... ;-) </shameless_self_promotion>
@EKons -10 for asking for votes.
and a pizza I got.
but, why, meta is all about posting our ideas
@Derpy I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed :P
2:23 PM
@EKons and deserve -5 too
Is it fixed?
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog It's Taryn's fault.
well...Taryn is a bird too...
what makes you think it ever had a problem? ...
you know, when it says the same name many times in a row, it simply means "ugh, I've told you many times already, come on!"
!!/blame᠎ ‍​᠎᠎᠎
2:26 PM
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog It's Tinkeringbell's fault.
@ShadowWizard 2900 points left
There, figured out the trick
there wasn't any trick over there
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog No such command 'blame​'.
2:28 PM
0x200B won't fool me ;-P
@Mithrandir waiting
Seems like @ɪBᴜɢ didn't implement that one right
@AnkitSharma Oh, I should look at those.
26 mins ago, by Mithrandir
Scratch that question :P
2:29 PM
@AnkitSharma Rarely, but I have at three answers there.
Woooow. What happened? I try to be productive once and everything is suddenly my fault!?
@Tinkeringbell tl;dr somebody messed with Smokey's code so that by typing a certain invisible character after the word "blame" will always make the bot blame you
Never try to be productive @Tinkeringbell. The more you do, the more you can be blamed for.
Safer to do nothing, eh?
It's okay, we can blame you even if you do nothing.
!!/blame᠎ ​‌⁠᠎⁣‌
@Mithrandir It's Bart's fault.
2:33 PM

@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog It's Jarrod Dixon's fault.
!!/blame᠎ ​
@Mithrandir It's Jeff Atwood's fault.
2:34 PM
!!/blame᠎ ​
@AnkitSharma It's Jeff Atwood's fault.
This whole site is his fault ^
Now we are stuck with Jeff
!!/blame᠎ ​
Careful...don't make Smokey blow through its API quota
2:35 PM
@EKons It's Jeff Atwood's fault.
@AnkitSharma true...
This doesn't eat API quota AFAIK
Chat doesn't have an API.
btw... even if chat did have an API, how would ~10-20 !!/blames "blow through its API quota" when the spam comes in at insanely high rates?!

Hmm, was that lol RTL or LTR? *thinking face*

@Mithrandir You'll never know.... :D
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog You don't have code privileges, but I've created PR#2571 for you.
Any particular reason for watching here and not CHQ, @Sonic?
> brews a cup of Espresso for @‮Tinkeringbell - 15s ago by SmokeDetector
2:41 PM
@Mithrandir Because the post in question was on MSE
@EKons puy
And so...?
@Mithrandir maybe you will ask it while I am in movie theater watching Aquaman :D
throwing oga on @EKons
Mayeb I should leave for it already
2:41 PM
prefer if watches and blacklists are made in CHQ
@Mithrandir I prefer that Meta-related GitHub PRs show up under the name "Sonic" instead of "gparyani".
have fun, @Ankit. I watched Wreck-It Ralph the other day, maybe I'll ask about that :P
@Mithrandir still in my pending list
1, not 2
Ohh 1 I like
2:43 PM
@Mithrandir Good thing they took that name off the sequel
...srahc 8-FTU yknuf deen neve t'nod uoy semitemos ,wonk uoy ‮@ShadowWizard
think we can consider the chicken quest closed for this year, @Bart
@Mithrandir Now it's just called "Ralph Breaks the Internet".
balpha would have left an hint by now
2:44 PM
Maybe he's too busy fixing wb bugs?
I know. I was curious why you think it's good that they didn't use the name Wreck-It Ralph.
@Mithrandir so you don't have to clarify "1 not 2"
Because because somebody don't like Wrecking
Actually... one moment, writing a question
@Derpy yeah, I guess so. I don't have any new ideas anyway.
2:47 PM
this doesn't bode well...
I though Stack Moderators was for Moderators only cc@Catija
Q: Why doesn't "Ralph Breaks the Internet" have "wreck" in the title?

MithrandirThe sequel to Wreck-It Ralph is caled Ralph Breaks the Internet. In it, Ralph and Venellope travel to the Internet to buy a replacement controller for Sugar Rush. Why is it called Ralph Breaks the Internet, though? Wouldn't it make more sense to name it Ralph Wrecks the Internet? I'm aware that...

If I search for "roasted chicken clipart" on google image search, I get both the old chicken avatar and something similar to Infinite avatar among the result....
@AnkitSharma the stack moderators team is mod only + someone actually has to manually add you I suspect
2:50 PM
@AnkitSharma did we forget to kick you out? ;)
@Mithrandir actually, your question is quite good
And hey, now I almost have Brunhilde...
Just upvote @Ankit's answer a few more times, it'll hit HNQ, and then I'll get it... :P
@Catija yeah yeah , kick me \o/
@JourneymanGeek I used to be mod
@Mithrandir answered already
@Mithrandir lol
2:55 PM
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog you made it wrong...
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog it's not \u200B, but something else
@AnkitSharma meh. We need to have a process for that.
Smokey easter eggs!
@ShadowWizard No such command 'blame‮'.
2:59 PM
um... yeah, you know copying random chars won't get you anywhere, right? !!/blame is a honest command, you can't bribe it

I just noticed that we have a tag forum and a tag forums on MSE.
3:30 PM
we're not a forum nor forums ...
I'm also leaning towards having neither, but there may be legitimate uses that I'm unaware of. But I'm sure we don't need both.
@AnneDaunted if we decide we need a forum tag, then the forums tag can go
legitimate uses like what, use of SE as a forum?
It seems to me that the pluralized form is more common (in general, in tags, e. g. users, questions, answers etc.), so maybe forums?
looking through those questions I doubt we need any of those tags
3:34 PM
Let's go with... fora
@rene I also got that impression
@andmyself flora ;)
e.g. @rene?
I'm not naming names.
but... what would mean?
3:39 PM
> Flora is the plant life occurring in a particular region or time, generally the naturally occurring or indigenous—native plant life. The corresponding term for animal life is fauna.
not flora,
For asking questions about @rene, of course
yeah, me too
not sure why @Tink disagrees...
@AnneDaunted Shog added the tag at least here so in 2011 he thought that tag was a good idea
@EKons Perhaps there's more plant life occuring than just rene? :P
3:42 PM
@rene In this case we need to tread carefully
Just burn those tags. No watchers and it adds nothing to the question that you wouldn't find or know from a search
Shog in 2011 isn't really a good measure for a good tag in 2019
Top answerers are employees where Adam Lear earned lots of rep by explaining we're not a forum. The tags can go if it was my call.
@Mithrandir in my timezone it is still 2018 ..
Eh, for what, another two weeks? We have to plan for 2019 now...
I rather get the facts right
4:06 PM
@Tinkeringbell But how can we be sure?
@PrincessLuna This requires an expedition into uncharted territory.
gets hat
gets shotgun
Let's do this.
We need a crew. Any volunteers or shall we start shanghaiing people?
Pff, who needs a crew? You have me :p
I want a crew!
Commanding just one person is no fun.
Especially if that person is holding the shotgun
4:09 PM
Mmf... Fine... summons an army of clones
There you go. Happy?
I... actually wanted to shanghai people, but this will do I guess.
sets sail
(and now we wait).
What's shanghaiing people?
@PrincessLuna en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghaiing Basically kidnapping some scoundrels to add to the crew. :)
W-well... uh... I-it's not too late to turn around and do that you know
It's like Gangaming but from a different timeline where it was invented in a different city
4:13 PM
@PrincessLuna Pffft. Always when you're just on the road, they want to turn around!
@Tinkeringbell But I really have to go!! :p
> Make a U-turn. After 100 meters, enter the pedestrian tunnel.
@PrincessLuna Just go over the railing. We were sailing, remember? :P
> Open an appropriate door when someone barely dodges the car
@Tinkeringbell I don't want to!!
@Tinkeringbell Is that the unchartered territory?
Glad to see random participating on MSE again...
(was a prolific contributor back when Trilogy mods had mod access)
4:30 PM
@random makes random appearances only.
and causes random comments :p
(i.e. doubt he'll do more than the occasional close vote.)
And that makes 19 FIRE tokens xd
lol wut
sure you don't want to, you know, clear your tokens?
But then I'd have to do stuff... >~<
4:39 PM
just make a new token once whenever you really need it, and be sure that they don't get deleted client-side
eh, multiple tokens ain't a problem
@PrincessLuna No, we're still in chartered territory :P
@Tinkeringbell Are we there yet?
4:53 PM
What about now? :p
I have to peeeheee
We have a stowaway!
stowaways don't get to pee
And no, we're not there yet. Here, go scrub the deck
Tink said to just do it over the railing!
That's about enough!
5:23 PM
This room seems really bad at mutinies.
if we just give "@Bart" a good ol' whipping I'm pretty sure order will be restored! ;)
5:34 PM
@Tinkeringbell You've been spoiled by TAS.
I don't think so :P
@Mithrandir I definitely am :)
