@ArtOfCode I'm the same type of person, with the addition that I like to immediately and at the same time see the result of what I'm writing
 
12:28 AM
@Xnero cause people hate moved cheese
@ArtOfCode I might have posted on one of the teams, half asleep, with markdown on the rich text editor.... 😁

I wrote the draft in a Google doc and still did all of the formatting in MD.
I also occasionally put MD in tweets.
 
Someone should answer this 😁 meta.stackexchange.com/q/359322/135565
 
@JourneymanGeek Might as well just put a on it
 
1:21 AM
@SonictheCuriouserHedgehog eh. That's not what a MSE status completed is for
 
Oh, wait, that's not a burninate request, just a discussion.
But tagging burninate requests as such has been done in the past
 
2:00 AM
@RyanM I tried looking at the announcement, and I don't have time to consider it before March. Seems brilliant, but I'm slow at adopting new tech. (Most folks who won't participate probably just can't spare the brainpower atm.)
 
2:20 AM
@rene I considered the shields and they're 100% environmentally friendly. (I think more EU countries should adopt vine shields.) The Dutch are the smartest in this aspect thus far.

@QueenieGoldstein IIRC if a post ever had a single spam flag on it, it will show that banner. Doesn't matter if the flag was declined later. So even if I misclick and retract my flag a second later, you'll get that banner in review.

Are questions about Stack Exchange open-source software, like where to find docs, on-topic at MSE? It is, quite literally, "about the software that powers the Stack Exchange network"...but not exactly in the usual sense.
 
@RyanM you could be ask if it is on meta 😁
 
@RyanM should be; the data explorer, for instance, is on topic
Provided we're talking about software developed by SE
 
I would reopen that 😁
 
Alright, Leave Open it is :-)
@JourneymanGeek if it gets closed, I just might :-)

meta.stackexchange.com/a/360112/369802 < My attempt at using the new text editor XD
@Sonic I don't mind the edit that changed the link from your name to your post, but how does this sentence make sense? :
> Sonic already wrote about the missing preview function. I am too
You wrote about missing the preview function and I miss it too.
I am NOT a missing preview function.
 
9:27 AM
Oh, I had mentally confused "the missing" as "missing the".
I rewrote that part, and I must have typed the word in the wrong place. Sorry for that mistake.
 
Just pay better attention next time, please. Things like this are why people start sighing when you edit their posts...

9:54 AM
@Tinkeringbell Sounds like a fancy job title though
Director of Operations for Missing Preview Function
 
I don't do fancy jobs. Too much responsibility ;)
 
10:16 AM
Yay for hooking up your SSD to your monitor, and then switching USB-C from one laptop to the other.
without dismounting first :/
 
Poof.
 
yeah its really annoying switching between mac and win
because mac cant "repair" it.
 
Blegh.
That's why I stick to windows only ;)
 
I wish I had that luxury
But I really should get used to using a dongle to connect my SSD directly to my mac, instead of being lazy and using the monitor
 
10:41 AM
can't you force mount a dirty bit like you can do n linux?
 
@Luuklag I like being lazy and using the monitor! I have one of those too, and it makes it really easy to switch the keyboard, mouse, headphone charging cable and phone charging cable from the work laptop to the home PC :D
 
@Luuklag C to A?
 
@JourneymanGeek not that I know of
@JourneymanGeek Yeah it jus some regular usb to usb C
these new Macbook airs only have 2 usb-c outlts
 
11:12 AM
@Luuklag I have USB C male to USB A female in my in case box :D
 
@JourneymanGeek Are those unusual? I got one with my phone I think, to attach I don't know what XD
 
@Tinkeringbell If you have a A to C male male cable, sometimes its useful if you need to connect C to C
 
Ahhh
True :)
I'll promise I will save that cable for when that happens XD I save too many cables.
 
No such thing :D
YOU MAY NEED IT...
I think I have a nullmodem cable somewhere
in case
 
I don't do much that requires cables though, so not much sense in keeping them around.
If we were talking leftover yarn, I would agree ;)
 
11:42 AM
I...think I'll stick to desktops

@SonictheCuriouserHedgehog That's fine when you can do your job from one fixed location :)
 
@Luuklag I once used TeamViewer to connect with my work PC..... from my mobile phone, when I was away and didn't have any PC available.
It worked, but was total nightmare to operate, with such small screen.
 
hahah yeah I imagine.
 
I think I could trump that. Connect my mobile to a monitor using usb-C and put it in desktop mode. Should give a reasonable experience
 
RDP scales to your display but its still hellish
 
1:56 PM
RDP?
 
@Luuklag nope. Team Viewer.
No VPN in my workplace so can't RDP to it.
 
@Luuklag remote desktop
I RDP home to avoid the office content filters :D
 
oh lol thought @Luuk was asking me if I used RDP to connect. ;)
 
Isn't TeamViewer just a wrapper/proxy around RDP ...
 
1:58 PM
@JourneymanGeek so your home computer is open to the outside?
 
different protocol
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating ah! see
 
@rene no, it's much more complex. :/
 
I ssh to my router from my phone, and open the ports with a script
then close it once I'm done
 
@JourneymanGeek you see, hence you exist!
:D
@JourneymanGeek ohh. Simple.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating \o/
I built a router
simple
 
Hmmm was going to try to take over one of my work computers, but for some reason are unable to connect.
Probably they set some sort of allowed IP list to our IT providers office
 
2:16 PM
oh lol, you have to match the spaces in your ID
haha it works. I have now teamviewer acces with my mobile to the windows laptop, using my mobile as input device for my monitor
 
2:29 PM
@Luuklag nice!
 
It does become low res though

Long time no....
sdc tea
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating brews a cup of green tea for @ShadowWizardisVaccinating

We’re excited to share our latest results and our plans for the future.

@Feeds Lots of words that can be said with single sentence: "The world is burning but we're doing great, now go and buy a Teams account".
The blog post is aimed for Teams users only.
25 paragraphs, and "Teams" is said 18 times.
But it's OK, it's a business and I'm glad Teams are selling so well. :D
!!/teams
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating No such command 'teams'.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating No such command 'soft'.

@ShadowWizardisVaccinating if it's Meta spam, assume Charcoal caught it ;)
 
@Ollie well, when I see it's not deleted I'm afraid it somehow evaded Smokey.
(this time waited three minutes)
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating But not our red flags.
 
license @rene @Glor @Sonic @Mith
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Wanted to del-vote... can't wait for 20K.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating bonk
 
6:23 PM
@Mithical danke!
 
too late :(
 
I am faster than a flower. I have achieved my life's ambitions.

@Ollie are you hinting you want more rep from bounties? ;)
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Are you hinting that you'll give me them?
;)
 
@Ollie blank face
:D

sdc truthserum Shadow
 
@Ollie No such command 'truthserum'.
 
Can someone take a look at this? Please see the author at the bottom of the question.
 
@Ollie what about it?
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating the Melinda/Mel sp/scammer, is what I thought. We'll see if that becomes Melanie, Melissa, Mithical etc. etc.
 
6:33 PM
@Ollie oh.. I'm out of this loop.
So there's a known spammer on SO calling themselves Melinda?
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Known network spammer Melinda, Melissa, Mel etc.
 
Not to me, until now.
Well, I did cast a delete vote, it's pure crap "question" anyway.
 
@Ollie but that spammer was claiming copyright of images. That question you linked to doesn't follow that pattern. It seems legit.
 
Yeah the Mel(rest of name here) spammer has a specific MO. That isn't it.
 
Yes but in their posts they claim to be some extension of "Mel" such as "Melinda", "Melissa" and others, which was what I was referring to.

@Spevacus Mostly it's the first line intro, and an explanation of their profession; it's not every female starting with "Mel" --- Meleena Mellie Melcia Melonie Melynda (x2), but not Mellyluise - "I am X and I am a professional photographer (or Illustrator).".
@Ollie Not "Melinda" or "Melissa" (unless you have an example MS link).
 
@Rob Here's a Melissa, but that's the only one in a large amount of tabs I opened from this regex search.
 
Rob
9:28 PM
Thanks, Melissa found.
 
A question:
wait, one sec
Ah, found it. But could we show less than 30 items per page? My dislike of going to the next page is overridden by the fact that with 25+ answers the page always scrolls up out of sight of the thing I'm looking for.
Not counting deleted posts...
