12:15 AM
@IvoFlipse: So after those set of games, my laptop decided to drop me again...
But I agree with it, we've been playing for 6 hours straight!
Interesting...
 
you again @TomWij :P
 
@TomWij You mean it's actually going to ship?
 
they;re making about 60k pieces according to Techcrunch
handing them out most likely
 
Seriously, after the NASA news yesterday (wired.com/wiredscience/2010/12/nasa-finds-new-life) that news about new discoveries is freaky. xD
@Chealion Oh, I misread... Thought it was about the browser. :D
I want Tab Stacking like in Opera. :-(
 
@TomWij All I read was blah blah arsenic blah blah Napoleon blah blah not aliens you conspiracy theorists. ;-)
 
12:20 AM
I want something with my tabs, just don't know what
going to hook up Kinect next week :P
 
@TomWij Well 8 stable just released and Chromium is at version 10.
@IvoFlipse For hacking or fun?
 
Hmm... Circular Window with Circular Tabs and Circular Web Pages, what would that be like? xD
You can switch tabs by rotating your screen. :D
Hmmm
I switched back to the latest NVIDIA drivers on 24/11
Long time no hangs before that.
 
for having fun with all the hacks
 
hmm
only last 3 days problems though
maybe it's something with even months
xD
 
I want to do a project with 3d scanning @Chealion, so a 3D camera for 150 = awesome
 
12:28 AM
add it to the dog project
place kinect cams on each side of the plate on a meter distance or something
 
I could do that actually
 
try to find out where the knees are
 
though I will probably collaborate with a company that already does something like that with regular camera with mice
knees @TomWij o.O
 
It's late!!!
xD
 
indeed
but I'd rather use it to see which paw is where (globally)
 
12:30 AM
my brain is still in CC --> SCV --> Rax --> Marine --> Marauder --> Star --> Medivac --> Micro mode or something ^^
 
lol
I should actually be writing an article about 'why should you buy this pressure measuring system' but really, I can't make myself do it :P
 
Oh...
Remember our security discussion?
Add Kinect cams to it. :D
Hmm...
We haven't used Ghost in any of our 2v2's yet...
EMP stalkers, Nuke expo, auto snipe some units
 
don't need it :P
they should be dead before that point
 
hmm
what about a full drop of ghosts? :D
 
they would get eaten
 
12:38 AM
would be funny to see 8 nukes fall on the entire main :D
 
and they cost too much
 
probably
 
better make 5 medivacs and only send 12 marines
the medivacs keep the marines alive longer
and get the marines stim
 
1:31 AM
what the hell? Groupon supposedly has 2bn in revenue :S
 
2:31 AM
SU seems to be a little slow tonight? Friday nights slow for SU?
 
I would not know, I'm busy with something else :)
 
I see...

Q: How to redirect user coming from cearten site

iletoI'm not expert ant look all over the internet for a meta-refresh code or javascript dosent meather i want to redirect for example: Site1 redirect to Site2 ,but only when some one come from url=youtube.com for example, if they dont come from youtube.com they shoud stay into Site1. maype somethin...

I believe this needs to be moved to StackOverflow.
 
migrated it
oh the pleasure of finally being able to sent crap to SO for a change
 
lol
 
2:49 AM
@BrianOjeda I deleted that browser question of yours that got closed
as I wouldn't want it to ruin your profile, when others see a closed and downvoted question
it was closed, because we try and keep the questions on the site relevant and objective
sadly, we have some legacy questions, which were moved here from SO when the site was started
or were asked when these policies weren't in place as strictly
 
@IvoFlipse Thanks. I thought is was a good question at first. Something like one the question that have earn a silver and gold badge.
However, after looking a little closer I saw that I was wrong. The questions I was using as a reference were closed or locked. @IvoFlipse
 
hehe, indeed they are
there are few questions that are objective and ever reach that status

Q: Peak detection in a 2D array

Ivo FlipseI'm helping a veterinary clinic measuring pressure under a dogs paw. I use Python for my data analysis and now I'm stuck trying to divide the paws into (anatomical) subregions. I made a 2D array of each paw, that consists of the maximal values for each sensor that has been loaded by the paw over...

unlike this question of mine off course :P
 
Yes, I have seen some.
It does seem like many question deserve more up votes. As someone was saying the other day.
 
they do indeed
everybody should try and waste all their votes every day
 
I have. Twice, I believe.
I didn't know that there was a limited until I earned the badge.
 
2:57 AM
hehe
I often upvote most of the hottest questions/answers
 
Great question. Great answers too. It's out of my league though. I did give it a vote up though.
 
or users who I think put in effort to help others
I give them some bonus upvotes
hehe, it's out of my league too, hence I had to ask it
 
I know what you mean. Normally, I do put a lot of work in my answers. Work in to the research, reference, grammar, spelling, and format for any of my questions.
I think I have answered a questions of your that wasn't too easy for me.
 
the only advice I can give you is, when you're in doubt if your solution will work, it's probably not a good idea to post it
as trying out a wrong solution is a bad user experience ;)
I remember trying to answer every question, only to get a backlash when it end up not working
 
A lot of times I know the answer to the questions but don't know how to explain. That and I want to include reference as often as I can. Much like Wikipedia.
 
3:05 AM
as everyone should, I normally don't answer if I can't reference it
as why would anyone trust me?
 
@IvoFlipse I'll keep that in mind.
 
by now, I don't always do it, as users should know they can trust me
but heck, I'm a researcher, it's a habit that sticks I guess :P
 
20k+ rep and a moderator. Yea, there is no reason to trust you.
 
well the 20k is rep over the whole network
including area51 I think
were I obtained an absurd amount of rep for proposing questions on web apps and gaming, before they limited it to 5 :P
so I got a TON of rep for suggesting like 50 questions on each site
 
Limited it to 5 per day?
 
3:08 AM
no 5 on-topic, 5 off-topic
or 5 in total, can't remember
area51 is where you can propose new Stack Exchange site
 
Is that just on Gaming SE or all across all SE?
 
I also have some rep on Web Apps, Gaming, Meta.SO, SO and from associating all the accounts off course :P
on area51 you have to provide example questions
I proposed 120, now it would probably be maximally 30
 
I have been there. Committed to the WoW site. I do think I should take it back since I have had no problem get my questions answer at Gaming SE.
 
well that site isn't going anywhere ;)
 
I have just focus on SU. Trying to get over that 3k rep barrier. After I do so, I am will check out some other such as server fault.
 
3:15 AM
hehe, well I didn't have any other sites back when SU launched
so it was easier
now I'm off to bed
4:16 AM and my head starts to hurt
 
Alright, take care.

Q: Is Aerial View officially gone from maps in Microsoft's Bing?

Michael PrescottI see Bird's Eye view is still available, but the Aerial View was much more valuable for spotting landmarks, evaluating real estate, neighborhoods, etc. Plus it was just a whole lot more interesting. I spent some time searching, but found no comments from anyone about the missing fly-over aeria...

There is an answer that need to be removed because of spam.

you should head over to webapps.stackexchange.com and associate your accounts
you'll get a rep bonus too :)
 
3:48 AM
I saw that. I creating my account account now so that I can claim my answer.
 
@BrianOjeda okay
I had to do a reconstructive surgery on this one >_>
 
4:05 AM
That is some horrible or careless writing skills.
I found one yesterday myself for this question. Bought it to the attention of @DMA57361. He fixed it.
 
ah yeah, saw that after @DMA57361 had corrected it
 
I do not have the best writing or typing skill either I must admit.
 
@BrianOjeda me neither, tend to make lot of mistakes. The edit windows covers most of it :p
 
... Which results in many edits to my questions or answers.

Q: Mirroring Windows 7 ALT-TAB and Win+TAB on multiple monitors

Abdullah JibalyIs there any way to get the ALT-TAB and Win+TAB application switcher to display on multiple monitors in Windows 7?

I was meaning to ask how to do the keyboard key icons. Its just <kbd></kbd>? @Sathya
 
@BrianOjeda nothing wrong there, just cleaned up the formatting a bit.
@BrianOjeda yup
don't think it'll work in chat.
yep, doesn't work

Q: How can I limit a search to folders in Windows 7?

PietroIn Windows 7, when I search for a file, how can I specify details like "search for folders only"? Is the widget in the top right of the window the only way to make a search? Isn't there anything like in Linux, MacOS, Windows XP, ...? Thanks

More spam... I flagged the answer already.
My goal of the week was just to earn 1k rep. Now, I have another goal -- to be the top Super User for the week.
 
flagged
you have 2 days :)
 
Yep
 
although I'm not sure why I'm at #1
 
Next goal will be 3k+ rep by the end of the month and top user of the month.
 
even if you add the bounty, my rep this week comes in a 571
@BrianOjeda well we had contests on those charts, btw
Posted by Jeff Atwood on August 18th, 2010

It’s been exactly one year since we launched Super User.

Super User is, of course, our site for power users of traditional computer hardware and software. The types of users who have OSX, Linux, and Windows installed in triple-boot fashion — and have built their own computers to run it all on.

Super User has had its share of ewokschallenges to contend with, as it is the most broad site in the trilogy, by far. Depending on your interpretation of the topic, anything about computers could be allowed there! …

 
4:29 AM
I bet. Still on-going?
 
Nope, it was over.

I'm logged into stackexchange.com, so I guess it pins me at top place
 
I see.
 
you're at #1 for the month, I see
 
4:33 AM
Good job Brian, that's impressive
 
Only by 50 or so points. It was even closer yesterday, less than ~5.
 
yeah...your 5 minutes of fame :)
 
well harrymc might eclipse you soon
he's the Bounty Hunter™
 
yeah...i've noticed that you two have been using super user a lot more recently...recently as in the last month/couple months, even though you are both 1 yr+ users
 
Yea, 44k in little over a year.
 
4:36 AM
for me it was motivation to go over 10k :P
 
haha! was it worth it?
 
now my answers have reduced a lot, but I end up doing lot of edits & retags
which @studiohack you do too :)
@studiohack let's just say that you'd be glad not to see deleted posts :)
 
yeah, i've noticed that :) i'm not that much of an expert on here, but now i have enough rep to help out...
 
next focus is to get over 3k on Stack Overflow :)
 
i've seen some nasty spam posts before they were deleted, and yes, they are a mess!
go for it!
 
4:39 AM
yeah! went from 720 to 1043 in 3 days!
 
I first heard about SO about year ago which lead me SU about the same time. I created an account by never did anything with it until this week. Before this week would only post questions at SO related to web development. Now, that I some extra time on my hand I help out on SU but only post questions on SO since I am out of my league there. @studiohack
 
@Sathya: nice!
 
with SO problem is that there are so many active users by the time you've thought about an answer and ready to post there are 5 answers already :X
 
@Sathya agree
 
there are a lot of users on SO
 
4:41 AM
plus Super User is more where I'm comfortable at
and when I heard SU private beta is starting I barged in!
 
@Sathya ...but it's a good problem to have. Provides a very good user's experience. I was very impress how SO operated so clean and quick.
 
@Brian - true
 
@BrianOjeda yep
> A UTC day rolls over at 8 PM EST...
you're on Eastern @studiohack ?
 
why do you ask?
 
Super User is more my style too. I do want to try my hand at Server Fault. I know a little about that type of stuff. Wouldn't mind learn some more.
 
4:45 AM
UTC day rolls over at 7pm EST.
 
Its 9:15am here in Afghanistan.
 
@studiohack just asking, found it on your profile
 
just my way of keeping track of when the days roll over - i asked a question over at MSO about a universal clock - check it out: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/62853/…
 
@studiohack DST might've been on then, hmm
 
figured, from your profile @BrianOjeda
 
4:46 AM
yeah
> During my service I was deployed to Iraq for a long 15 months becoming a Combat Iraqi War Veteran.
 
@Sathya: what do you mean? DST?
 
@studiohack Daylight Savings
 
that's what i was wondering?
it turns at 7 EST now?
 
Yes.
 
since DST, it hasn't seem right, now i know why...duh :)
 
4:47 AM
it turns at 6PM CST
which is 7pm EST
 
Or 4 PST
will have to remember for spring DST :P
 
@studiohack heh :)
anywhoo I'm off. take care & have a good weekend @studiohack & @BrianOjeda
 
@Sathya Thanks, you too.
 
@Sathya have a good one
@BrianOjeda: looks like you're the last one, im over and out - have a good one yourself - see you around and welcome to superuser!
 
btw, for some interesting data, have a look at Stack Exchange Data Explorer. There are some great prebuilt queries

Q: PLEASE FLAG ME, I'M SPAM

amitDeleted original text pending removal.

Needs to be removed.
 
it's a goner!
 
Is there a way to not show closed questions or spam?
 
yes
 
How is that?
 
you mean when searching the site?
if a question is deleted, it's gone
 
11:15 AM
No. I really referring to the close because of migration questions.
 
you can vote to delete, though I don't use that too often
unless it's really crap
 
Okay
Going off topic.... I broke 1k rep.
 
w000t ;)
meeh chat = off-topic for me
 
Kind of cheated. I was trying to claim an answer of mine that was moved to WebApp SE. When I did, it gave me 100 point just out of the blue for both sites.
 
hehe
 
11:22 AM
I have answer so good questions, IMO, these last few hours. But I haven't gotten the reward. Hopefully it will pay off. Goal is 1k+ earned rep and top user SU of the week.
 
well I wish you luck ;-)
I've lost to drive to do that somewhere down the road
though moderating can take up enough time
 
I am not moderator for any site. So I have the time. Next goals are 3k+ rep by the end of the month and top SU of the month.
So, how were you pick to be one of the first moderators for SU? @IvoFlipse
 
well I was nearly a 10k user on the site
 
This site or another?
 
and most of the real top users didn't vote to close, flag or whatever
they were busy answering (very important!)
 
11:28 AM
They can see that?
 
so I was one of the most likely picks ;)
well I can see who closes questions, after I shut it down
or stumble on them
and I see the name of who flagged something for mod attention
 
You were one of the originals? Right?
 
no, no
the originals were splattne (SF), Diago and TheTXI (or what it was spelled)
 
There has been an election for SU moderator since the opening?
 
well how they found those first ones is a bit lost on me
I got elected together with Troggy
then Diago left (to take a break) and we got random + quack on board
I think :P

Q: SuperUser.com Moderator Nomination

RSolbergI'm not sure that this will be the right venue for this discussion or not and hope I don't step on anyone's toes, but with the effort now underway to define what is acceptable for the new SU.com, I was thinking that we may need to get some moderators over there sooner than later. Since we alread...

 
11:36 AM
@Troggy His comment for you the first link is pretty funny.
 
yeah I did write that :P
 
lol
Again, off object, would a question for a download manage with specific against FAQ? I want to create one.
Thats because I need one while I am over here.
 
a download manager to download what, how?
 
Files from the internet. For example, I am trying to download a 500MB file to get Windows XP Mode.
The internet goes in and out alot here. I don't want to start over if I don't need too.
 
ah, off course is that on-topic
or at least, I think so
 
11:41 AM
Great.
Do you know if Google's Chrome download manager can start where it left off if disconnected in the middle of the download?
 
I wouldn't bet on it
good question though
although there's a difference between closing Chrome and losing connection (and wanting to resume)
 
Should have put it on SU
 
you can ;)
 
Just asked the Chrome question. If it doesn't, then I will ask the 3rd party download manager question.
 
lol
you're on top
 
11:49 AM
That was quick. Google FTW
I mean +1 to Google
 
I don't think it has a download manager
 
I thinking thing the same thing.

Q: Does the bonus rep for associating accounts across different SE sites go against daily rep cap?

Brian OjedaDoes the +100 bonus rep for associating accounts across different Stack Exchange sites go against the +200 daily rep count?

 
I wouldn't know
I don't think so
 
I figure I could have just asked in here but I decided that it might be a question someone else might have in the future. So I posted at meta.
 
12:04 PM
very wise
I just don't know for sure
 
Hi @Ivo, is it okay if I ask about spammer here, rather than in ask-a-super-user-moderator?
I'm wondering if editing spam posts is actually helping you guys.
Or, like I commented on meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/60295/… : Does replacing the spam text with something like Deleted spam pending removal (before the post is deleted by a moderator) bother you in this process?
(Like you would then have to go into the revision history to see the patterns. I already figured that, when replacing the title, it should still stand out to ensure others flag it too. Like "Delete me" might not been seen, while "FLAG ME, I'M SPAM" might stand out better?)
(Indeed, I am not awaiting your answer on my first "Is it okay.." ;-)
 
if you flag them or just point us to them here
they get deleted and they're gone
I wouldn't waste more energy on those spammers after you flagged it
 
Okay, so just flagging as spam (not flagging for moderator attention) is just fine? Editing the spam posts is not really helping, is it?
 
I mean you surely have to write a Sinterklaas poem right?
we see them on the same mod tools anyway
 
Oh no, not me! ;-)
 
12:11 PM
well others at least don't see the spam
but no, it doesn't add anything other than that it's gone
 
(Trying to figure out some English poem now ;-)
I can do a smiley: I think the only reason my keyboard has a §± key MUST be Sinterklaas: <±;-§§
(Okay, no more editing then! Thanks for a good mod job!)
 
lol your welcome
I hope you get nice gifts
 
As for celebrating Sinterklaas: all I do is send folks SMS text messages with Sinterklaas or some specific Piet as the sender (rather than a phone number). That leaves the recipient completely oblivious of who sent it :-)
 
hehe
I got my girl friend, so I bought everything on her list, except for the James Blunt CD :P
 
That's on odd sentence: "I got my girl friend". For a moment I thought she was a present herself! But I guess you're referring to "lootjes"! :-)
 
12:16 PM
yeah, and no idea how to translate it
 
(As for that SMS, I'm not affiliated with them, but mollie.nl allows for sending messages with such odd sender. Well, it evens allows one to fake other phone numbers, which the recipient's will then show with the name from that recipients address book...)
 
nasty! ;)
 
...but with a timer too. If you can predict at what time tonight the presents will be unwrapped... :-)
 
hehe, no idea
but I got her like 9 gifts
 
(It evens advertises with sending Happy New Year messages. Not too personal, to schedule those...)
 
12:19 PM
while the budget was 15 euro
nope, very true though I try to sent a personalized message at New Year
 
Okay, I'll leave you with your poems and papier-mâché ;-) Enjoy!
 
hehe, thanks you too
 
(Hmmm, too late for this year, but I guess I might get some cheap prepaid phone number, set up SMS to email forwarding for that, forward that email to some server software that will then respond using Mollie's API, and make something in which the Sinterklaas "recipient" needs to respond to text messages to interactively get their own poem or something. Hmmm, a whole year to figure that out!)
 
lol, you could make an app for that ;)
