Oh yeah, this is today again, isn't it?
I think today is Tuesday, at least..
 
Indeed it is
starts @ 4pm ET
 
Hooray \o/
 
6:48 PM
room topic changed to SE Podcast Live Chat: Puppies! livestream.com/stackexchange
 
@balpha for future reference - how do I change the room topic?
 
on the room settings page (click "info", top right), click the "edit" button
 
room topic changed to SE Podcast Live Chat: livestream.com/stackexchange
@balpha Tanks!
 
Where??? The invasion is coming???
 
Indeed
and we're live! (sorta)
 
6:57 PM
@AlexMiller I'm watching a robot clean a bathroom floor. The SO offices are so glamorous
 
Jin
@AlexMiller is Mac-ed out
 
@Jin psssh, this is windows baby
just mac hardware
 
I used to bring my laptop in, until IT decided it was a security risk. >.<
 
Users and podcasts and code, oh my!
 
Is Shirlock definitely on this week?
 
6:58 PM
Somebody post something horrifying so we can watch them be traumatized in real time
 
Wait, I'm going to be in a conference call when this actually starts. Booo.
 
@mootinator Same here. Hey! Where do you work? ;)
 
@BilltheLizard In my livingroom, mostly.
 
@ChrisF No shirlock this week - he'll probably be on later this month
today is Sam Saffron
 
7:00 PM
@AlexMiller Ta
 
Waffullllllllllllllllllz
 
Wait, I'm not the guest? I thought we established it! Jeff, Joel, Jeffery! :P
What time does it start? Right about now?
Do we have a list of Q's this time?
 
@jcolebrand An hour
 
@MichaelMrozek ah good
 
7:01 PM
room topic changed to SE Podcast Live Chat: livestream.com/stackexchange / Today's Guest: stackoverflow.com/users/17174/sam-saffron
 
@jcolebrand I prepped since I knew who was going to be on, but now I forgot what I wanted to ask.
So we'll wing it in style as usual.
 
damn, we really pulled out all the VC money for that high tech on air sign, eh?
 
I wanna ask what is favorite flavor of syrup is. And cheese.
@RebeccaChernoff hahahaha
 
I've got many questions. For example, why are we listening to waffles when the masses clearly want drachencole?
 
Ok, so for style for this chat, we are doing like last time, and each Q will be starred and bolded until answered
@MichaelMrozek dracole ;) ask @Grace ;)
Also, I only can talk about doing things wrong ;)
 
7:03 PM
@RebeccaChernoff needs to get on the show and talk about those super awesome userscripts she heard about.
 
Speaking of which, did somebody pull the thing that showed the message ID on the right? It stopped working for me, right around the time I synced for the first time in months
 
Oh, that's not good. Which browser are you using?
 
Chrome. Don't ask which version :(
 
@AlexMiller keeps trying to explain things to me about microphones and video cameras. I keep telling him to take it up with the other kids in the A/V Club
 
If it's not dev I'm obliged to tell you to go home anyway.
 
7:07 PM
@JoelSpolsky I think I'm doing a fairly good job of trying to keep it purely to the things that actually affect you / need feedback from you
 
@JoelSpolsky There is a beta for that floating around somewhere, isn't there? Should have him get on that ;)
 
There were entirely too few clips of puppies in the last podcast; I'm hoping for at least a 50/50 split between SO talk and puppy clips
 
Nice to see a messy office
 
Jin
@JoelSpolsky who are those people behind you? CHAOS?
 
@MichaelMrozek What do you have against pictures of cats? We could have a hilarious caption contest!
The "video" feed is just a slide show for everyone, right? Not just me?
 
7:10 PM
I love cats, but you can't break with tradition like that
@BilltheLizard No, it's showing @JoelSpolsky and @AlexMiller working
 
@MichaelMrozek Hm, if you Ctrl + F5, you don't get the IDs? There are occasions where it bugs out.
 
room topic changed to SE Podcast Live Chat: livestream.com/stackexchange / Today's Guest: Sam Saffron (stackoverflow.com/users/17174)
 
@MichaelMrozek Yeah, if they were CHAOS @joelSpolsky would be dead already.
 
@TimStone No, that usually works. I'll fiddle with it later, I was just making sure they weren't intentionally removed at some point
 
@MichaelMrozek I'm getting a spinner and a new picture of Joel and Alex every 10-15 seconds.
 
7:12 PM
@BilltheLizard You're missing a lot of action then
 
They were not. If you find anything that seems to be our fault, lemme know and I'll fix it. Otherwise blame @balpha, I guess.
 
Poof! Joel disappeared!
 
You'll notice I strategically have my audio mixer up on the monitor you can actually see so it looks like im doing work
of course FB is open on the other one
 
Skillfully done. golf claps
 
The video should be split with the other half showing Jeff. Otherwise I'm forced to assume you just fake his half of the conversation
 
Are they really worried about the brand of the soda they are drinking???
 
Hahah
 
@jjnguy There are 27 impressionable viewers
 
I think that's silly.
 
I'm already on newegg trying to buy all the hardware I see in the image right now
 
7:22 PM
Is there really a concern?
 
Am I correct in saying that there's not supposed to be volume yet?
 
@MichaelMrozek Pssh, my order already shipped.
 
Is there an audio-only channel? I'm not getting anything useful from livestream.
 
@jjnguy believe it or not, it's possible that they're just having fun ;)
 
I'd like to thank the "share" link for opening in the same tab. Solid choice, livestream
 
7:24 PM
@BilltheLizard I think it's supposed to be quiet.
 
I didn't think we were gonna clear all the old starred Qs, but I guess it makes sense. I did want to hear about that team's take (and Joel and Jeffs most notably) on distributed teams
 
@BilltheLizard there is no audio only live stream, but the audio is posted tomorrow
 
@balpha fun? that isn't allowed here!
 
@balpha hmmm, good call.
 
@AlexMiller can we make that happen in the future?
 
7:24 PM
@jjnguy note that it says "Punyon Cola"
 
I think half the reason @jcolebrand became a mod was so he could pin things in chat rooms
 
@balpha I saw that. But I wonder if Alex was actually concerned.
 
@MichaelMrozek :D
 
@AlexMiller You should make audio a $3.99 'premium' service.
 
pokes Meta
 
7:26 PM
@jcolebrand short answer: no. If you want audio only, just minimize the window :-P
@jjnguy Yes, we're VERY concerned
 
@AlexMiller I see now!
 
@AlexMiller streaming bandwidth would be cheaper, and some of us are sensitive at our job places.
I'll go ask on webapps.
 
@jcolebrand actually, ironically, audio streaming is more expensive than video
 
@AlexMiller saywhat?
 
mainly because there's a lot more competition in the video space
crazy, right
 
7:28 PM
see, now y'all know how we really spend our days. that's some very important work Joel is doing there.
 
Ohhh, the offline page is broken, I see.
 
I want to be CEO some day.
 
I dunno, being CTO isn't all it's cracked up to be. I'd caution against that. :P
 
Well CTO you have to deal real work
CEO, you just make fake soda labels all day
 
Ah, there's my problem. And I do love soda, so.
 
7:33 PM
@AlexMiller How many sodas does he drink in a day??
 
Has the stream frozen or is it just me?
 
Working for me. No audio yet, though.
 
It looks fine, no audio yet
 
@ChrisF It's been freezing for me.
 
Just refreshed and got an ad :( However, people are now moving (if only a little)
 
7:37 PM
btw, if you tweet about this, make sure to use the official #stackcast hashtag
 
It's a little choppy at times.
 
might be because we're streaming over wifi
 
For the number of times I do this on every project I start/work on, I'm surprised the ASP.NET MVC team hasn't included the 'ignore favicon.ico' code in every MVC project as a default.
 
@AlexMiller There wasn't room in my last tweet - sorry
 
So, is there supposed to be audio on on the livestream, or am I missing something?
 
7:42 PM
@JohnGietzen There will be starting at 4pm
for now, you're just watching us work
sorry, "work"
 
But it is only 2:42pm, here!
 
@JohnGietzen is missing the audio that I'm not hearing ;)
 
@JohnGietzen that's in 18 minutes btw.
 
Shake that pen!
Ok, I'll be good now.
 
7:45 PM
It's fun to make up what you're talking about.
 
Is the sound level going to be higher this week? Last week I had to have my speaker volume turned right up and got a fright when I was mentioned in any of the chat rooms.
 
yes, it will be
we have all kinds of new mics and toys
 
Any puppies?
 
Uh oh..
 
@ChrisF BONK
 
7:48 PM
I haven't listened to the last one.
We need a "Previously on SE Podcast...
 
@MichaelMrozek Nice try :)
 
If anything goes wrong, it'll probably be because you need more monitors on that table
 
@JohnGietzen They should end each one on a cliffhanger
 
"Will Joel make it out of the bear's mouth alive!? find out next week on...
 
@MichaelMrozek Perils of Pauline or Flash Gordon style!
 
7:49 PM
"...S. E. PODCAST!
 
@JohnGietzen THE END. Question mark?!
 
or even Dick Barton (for UK oldies)
 
Alex didn't lock his computer. Rookie mistake
 
Quick shuffle his windows!
 
Add an outlook rule to play a sound!
 
7:50 PM
@JoelSpolsky Set his wallpaper to a huge picture of waffles, and then ask him why he has that wallpaper when waffles is on the podcast live
 
I kinda miss that cheesy itconversations.net-Porn-Saxophone intro....
 
Change the desktop background. Need more unicorns.
 
no no, screen shot of the current window layout... set as desktop background.
 
If you guys want that product placement to work, you gotta make whatever Joel's drinking clearer
 
so many great ideas
 
7:51 PM
no, no, send a resignation email to his boss!
 
so little time to implement
 
26 mins ago, by balpha
@jjnguy note that it says "Punyon Cola"
 
oh teh drama!
 
@balpha ah, thanks
 
7:52 PM
Hm. I just hit the rep cap on Programmers...maybe I should actually write code and run projects instead of talking about how to write code and run projects.
 
gah, I wanna listen but I'm trying to code ... decisions decisions
 
can somebody send me an @ msg. need to hear boink.
 
@MichaelPryor Boo!
 
@MichaelPryor BONK
 
Thank you!
 
7:53 PM
@ThomasOwens Nice answer (well technically Good Answer) there though
 
@ThomasOwens Or take a nap so you're ready to go at midnight UTC
 
@jcolebrand just tell them you're compiling
 
@balpha ha!
 
so glad we finally have chat... so many times I've wanted to reach back through my headphones and tell one of them something.
 
@ChrisF: Which one?
 
7:54 PM
@ThomasOwens The one you got most of your votes for today ;)
 
Oh. Thanks.
 
@balpha or bundle installing
 
Keep up the good work - we need more people with access to the 10K tools
 
I'm surprised it has 27 upvotes. It barely answers the question. It's just that everyone else hit everything else I was going to say.
 
@ThomasOwens You have a link and you back it up with a solid argument. So we have the information on the site, plus a reference.
 
7:56 PM
Man, I really want VS to have Solution Templates... Trying to use DDE to move projects and create references, is a PITA.
 
So, will this start in 5mins, or in an hour?
 
It should start in ~3 minutes, by my clock. Yes?
 
ok, i'm time-zone juggling, so i was just confirming :)
 
there is no audio yet, correct?
 
None here
 
7:57 PM
seems mute for me
 
15 mins ago, by Alex Miller
for now, you're just watching us work
 
Mute here as well.
