Q: Is there apis for adding/editing posts and viewing inbox in the works

AlxandrI'd really like a full blown android-client for stackexchange, and I don't mind making one myself, however there are a lack of apis available for adding, editing, voting and such and checking if the currently logged in user has permission to add/edit/vote. All in all there is a lack of api where ...

Q: As a high level player how can I ice other mobserts in Mafia Wars?

JohnFxI am trying to get some of the achievements that require icing other people, but having a very hard time with it. I am winning most fights with ~25 damage on the other player, but no matter how many times I attack them it never seems to be enough. Over the last 2-3 days I've tried repeatedly at...

 
1:24 AM
There are two choices of toilet paper orientation when using a toilet roll holder with a horizontal axle parallel to the wall: the toilet paper may hang over or under the roll. The choice is largely a matter of personal preference, dictated by habit. In surveys of American consumers and of bath and kitchen specialists, 60–70% of respondents prefer over. What surprises some observers, including advice columnist Ann Landers, is the extent to which people hold strong opinions on such a trivial topic. Defenders of either position cite advantages ranging from aesthetics, hospitality, and clea...

Q: Alt-tab out of Minecraft without the game pausing

Cosmic FlameIs there a way to alt-tab out of Minecraft (i.e. make Minecraft lose focus) without the game auto-pausing and without having to bring a menu (e.g. inventory) up first? Thanks.

 
@badp yea, the sitting duck thing is the problem.
 
Yeah, it killed the watcher thing in a couple of seconds, then got me killed to goblins and bombs in about as much time.
 
I've been having a lot of success with fire + lightning of late. particularly against those freaking annoying goblin bombers
You didn't burn the rope v. the watcher?
 
hm, nope.
 
goblin bombers-> use fire, their bombs will detonate
lightning + fire = Homing fire.
(in large clusters of mobs anyway)
 
1:45 PM
The one critique I have with the game is that it tries to be very thorough in explaining the game mechanics
then in the middle of the first level you get rain, wind + water
wait, what, wind? what the hell is wind?
 
steam!
not wind
steam
 
the icon totally looked like wind.
 
steam is THE BEST
do fire + water
 
yeah, I found out after ten minutes
 
also, you can do ice with water + cold
ice + arcane is pretty handy
 
1:47 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz yeah, that was what I got when I found out that elements can be combined in place
so the game doesn't eventually have a mana bar, right?
it's all about how quickly and accurately you can jam the keyboard and the mouse
 
Correct
no manabar
 
infinite casting, interesting ...
 
@CRoss It's mostly a matter of balancing between mobility (= not getting wtfpwned) and spellcasting (= doing the wtfpwning), for what the demo seemed to tell me
 
@badp that's about right.
my fave combo right now is steam + arcane + earth
followed by lightning
since Steam wets everything
 
arcane beams are whoopass, but they move so slowly.
 
1:54 PM
earth turns it into an arcane bomb
channel time -> range of throw
and it has a pretty damned large radius
 
isn't the whole point of using arcane having a death ray of your element of choice?
 
It can also be used as an intensifier on earth spells.
 
I see.
 
(earth makes anything into a bomb)
 
I was amused when I tried to heal peasants
that directed heal beam is pretty owerpowered

I love the voice acting
 
barely less damage than arcane combos

Alright, I want to make this. Who's in?
I mean, it can't get harder...
 
you need to find some balance though...

Well, there's a limit in for example 2d12 for damage, and get to decide which.

@badp I guess, but I posted a new comment. I was wondering if a slight UI change would fix the problem. I mean that misspelling has been silent for ages and no one else seemed to notice the mistake either, so my question paid for it.

@badp I had the same response when reading the Dungeons description. Your dungeon can have THREE levels. I mean, I'm not saying that's bad, it just is kind of weird when you make it sound like that's the coolest feature ever.

7:18 PM
Dungeons is an upcoming strategy/simulation video game currently in development by Realmforge Studios, to be published by Kalypso Media. It was officially announced August 12, 2010 and was released on January 27, 2011. Gameplay Dungeons differs from Dungeon Keeper in that it is not monster's needs that the player has to look after but those of the heroes. In order to gain the Soul Energy needed to purchase high end equipment for the dungeon, heroes need to be killed only after they are fully satisfied. Things that make a dungeon run satisfying to a hero are obtaining treasure or fighting...

Q: Prevent knockback when shield is active

FabianWhen I have the shield (E on self) active, I get knocked back by melee attacks and arrows. Is that just a drawback of the shield, or is there some way to avoid this knockback?

Bored now.
 
@Powerlord I wish I had that problem
 
@badp <3 Directed Heal Beam... or at least I do in TF2 and Monday Night Combat.
@CRoss Well, it's hard to concentrate right now, because the person in the next cube over has a teleconference on speakerphone from the US Census Bureau.
My hope of doing actual, thinking work is practically nil as long as the lady is droning on and on and on and on.
Speaking of Magicka earlier, have the bugs been ironed out of it yet?
 
@Powerlord headphones and music my friend

@Feeds It would be nice if the chat was smart enough to have questions with my ignored tags in it not appear in the feeds on my screen.
Oh, Jeff posted another blog entry on Coding Horror. Lets see what out-of-touch-for-the-real-world stuff he posts this time.
 
I actually kind of liked the 24 GB article
 
Lets me point out the dumbest statement from the 24 GB article
"I guess having 24 gigabytes of system memory is a little extravagant, but at these prices -- why not?" <-- because RAM prices continue to fall.
 
Well, yes, but you've got to realise
 
7:57 PM
Because I'll get another computer with a faster processor and different RAM slots before I'd ever need 24 GB of RAM on a desktop.
 
If you buy 12 GB now, and later upgrade to 24 GB, the total cost will be higher than 24 GB in one go.
 
@ArdaXi Only if you fill all your slots.
 
@Powerlord True, but that's cheaper than not doing so.
In general anyway.
 
shrugs lets face it, most of us can't use 24 GB. But it's nice to know it's available
 
I don't even use the 8GB in my current desktop.
 
7:58 PM
How so? My motherboard won't support it, but if I get a new one I can.
 
Having said that, I won't go with less than 8GB in my next machine simply because of the ever-rising minimum requirements of stuff.
 
I like having lots and lots of RAM so I can use a ramdrive
 
Speaking of new motherboards, has everyone heard about the SATA issues with some of the Sandy Bridge chipsets?
 
@Powerlord nor do I.
 
@ArdaXi They have these wonderful drives called SSDs that do almost as good a job of that, plus they're permanent storage.
 
8:01 PM
nice not to worry about FF's memory footprint though
 
@Powerlord They're also wonderfully expensive and short-lived.
 
arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2011/01/… <-- Last chance to get MNC with TF2 items... deal ends tomorrow.
(as I recall)
 
@Powerlord it's much more powerful than that. You have like 1k hitpoints and it heals that much in about a couple seconds, and keeps going, in ever growing green digits

@Powerlord Global Agenda's individual games are 6v6 too.
 
I think Monday Night Combat is actually a lot of fun. Also, your characters level means absolutely nothing.
 
Well, they're just round-based tps games.
 
@ArdaXi Oh? I thought Global Agenda put a lot of emphasis on its persistent world.
 
@Powerlord I never played the version with the persistent world.
You can also just do missions.
 
8:05 PM
@Powerlord I don't use the 4 GB in my laptop because all of Win7, Ubuntu and Arch Linux insist they want to install their 32 bit versions... and even then, at least on Ubuntu, my cache only ever fills when some app goes rogue.
 
When I say your character level means nothing in MNC, it's just tracking how many times you've played the game. All your skills start at 1 at the start of every match, and you start with $300 or $350 that you can spend on turrets and upgrades.
(with level 2 skills costs $150)
@badp I use the 64-bit version of Windows on my desktop, and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu on my servers.
 
@Powerlord On Linux it isn't really a problem anyway.
 
er... sorry, one server is Ubuntu, the other is Debian.
Ubuntu LTS (which is 10.04) and Debian Lenny to be exact.
 
@Powerlord Yeah, what I mean is that even if my CPU technically supports 64 bit instructions (it's a Core2 i686 iirc), I haven't been able to install anything 64 bit on it yet :|
 
vgmusic.com/~rbemrose/tf2/spy_dual_unusual.png <-- btw, this is why you don't get two circling unusuals on Spy or Medic in TF2... they both rotate at the same position.
 
8:11 PM
@badp It supports x86-64, so you should be able to install 64-bit versions of Windows on it
 
@ArdaXi actually I just identified my CPU as a Penryn:
Penryn is the code name of a processor from Intel that is sold in varying configurations as Core 2 Solo, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Pentium and Celeron. During development, Penryn was the Intel code name for the 2007/2008 "Tick" of Intel's Tick-Tock cycle which shrunk Merom to 45 nanometers as CPUID model 23. The term Penryn is sometimes used to refer to all 45nm chips with the Core architecture. Chips with Penryn architecture come in two sizes, with 6 MiB and 3 MiB L2 cache. Low power versions of Penryn are known as the Penryn processor. The smaller version is commonly called Penry...
apparently they really are 32 bits (T9550).
 
Note to self: Turn on anti-aliasing before making screenshots in TF2.
 
@badp I have that one's big brother.
 
@badp That's weird, because my Q6600 (from a previous CPU generation) is an x86-64
 
Sorry for the delay, but I'd just point out I used to think it inconcievable to fill a 20GB hard drive, max out a 50GB download limit etc etc. We'll find something that uses that much RAM :P
Also: TIL Steam tells you to piss off if your HDD is full.

Thank you Feeds, a little slow on the draw there.

George StockerI read an article last year on "Speeding up Stack Exchange" that talked in depth about the 'multi-tenancy' nature of the (then) Stack Exchange 1.0 sites.

Q: System message renders a "—" improperly.

Grace NoteThe community-generated election banner is supposed to have a dash separating the start and the link. Instead, it renders something like the following. I wasn't sure if it was just me, but on chat Arda Xi reported the same behavior, so I'm inclined to believe there is a global issue here.

 
It would be kind of funny if Juan got voted off his own proposal.
 
no, no it wouldn't
 
8:42 PM
That's not a very nice thing to say... of course he hasn't been too active lately.
 
@ArdaXi (stupid enter button) You are aware that's what it would mean if Oak and Grace are voted in as mods?
 
There's the problem of around-the-clock coverage.
 
@Powerlord Of course.
 
only two positions available ... I don't think that's right
 
I'll be honest, I'd completely forgotten he even existed until Arda linked the original moderator nominations.
 
8:43 PM
17 mins ago, by badp
Is that correct @GraceNote? [†: Under investigation, @badp. It should be noted that Programmers, CSTheory, and GameDev also had 2 slots only when they first started. -Grace]
 
I was expecting nothing less than 3 positions, and was hoping for 4 positions
 
AskUbuntu also currently only have 2 positions open
 
I'll be honest, my interactions with Juan Manuel have not been... favorable, to put it nicely.
 
I think we have enough active members to recruit more than 2 good moderators
 
Just so I am clear: They're replacing the three listed on the about page with the two who win the election? They're not supplementing the existing three with two more?
 
8:45 PM
@badp SO said that it only had two positions originally too, heh.
 
@Shaun Yes
 
@Fabian That's... curious.
 
@Shaun That's correct, because they are pro-tempore mods.
 
@TimStone SO started with no mods, pro tem or otherwise, but its staff (Jeff and Joel) were mods.
 
Elected mods will serve till they step down.
 
8:46 PM
again to repeat, we're not sure the number will actually be two
 
@Shaun It makes sense to replace the pro-tem mods, but it does not make sense to reduce the total number of mods
 
@Powerlord I'm talking about the current election. There are now three moderator positions available on SO.
 
/me nods.
 
@TimStone Oh.
 
I wonder if @tzenes would nominate.
 
8:46 PM
I mean, some sites had like six pro-tem mods
 
@ArdaXi highly unlikely
@badp RPG even had 4 at one point, and you know how big we are
 
@ArdaXi Tzenes might be the only person that wants to be a mod less than me
 
Question... if there are more nominations, will that mean we'll have more final mod positions? :P
 
Oh geez only two slots :x
 
If so, I nominate everyone to run
 
8:51 PM
@Powerlord no, SO had like 55 nominations.
and that's because after the first 30 nominations, the rep requirements for nominating increase
otherwise there would've been hundred
 
@badp TimStone already noted that SO increased its open mod positions by 1 during the current election...
 
the count is still only three. three was probably the original intent
 
@Powerlord well, yeah, at the beginning the SO nomination rep requirement was 300, not 3,000
 
@CRoss Yeah, there were a number of things wrong about that page originally.
 
still for now it's best to assume those numbers are accurate
 
8:56 PM
@badp Yeah, well, at the end of the nomination phase for SO, only the top 30 users rep-wise went on to primaries.
 
In other news I'm glad to see an increased number of GiantITP strips per unit of time.
 
Also, you guys should all play Monday Night Combat.
 
@Powerlord Is it good?
Been looking for a new game
 
@ThomasMcDonald Would I be suggesting it if I didn't think it was?
It does take a bit getting used to. I suck as Sniper in it, for example... also, most classes have an instant-kill grapple at close range.
 
@Powerlord Possibly. Someone offered me a guest pass but if it has more approval I'll just buy it.
 
8:58 PM
Ironically, the Assassin's grapple attack will only kill you guaranteed if it hits from behind.
@ThomasMcDonald Well, you could then try before you buy just to get a feel for it.
Oh, btw, since it's not clear from the way its being marketed, it uses the Unreal Engine 3 on PC, not Source.
