Really, I'm the only one in this room? Gosh.
 
 
10 hours later…
12:29 PM
we have 150 unanswered questions
but many of them are answered - in comments
I think we should turn some of the comments into answers, even if they would be short and not really high quality answers
 
@AdityaSomani I only had one night there stopping off, in Imamaya or something, it was fine, but I didn't see the city, went straight to Nagasaki the next morning
Today I'm in Fukuoka
I'll be back in Osaka later
@Dirty-flow yeah, I mean to go through them all at some point
at the very least, flag ones or vote to close unclear questions that the OP hasn't come back to answer comment queries

@AndrewGrimm your changes to the racism/etc question, is there a reason for lower casing of 'Islamaphobia'? I looked on Wiki as I was curious, and they use uppercase.
especially given Islam is uppercase, I would have thought it would be too, no?
 
1:40 PM
Going thru the unanswered questions now...
 
@MarkMayo If you stop by Kobe and fancy a beer, let me know.
 
Good Guy @jmac
 
@AdityaSomani I figured I may as well offer if he's going to be in the area.
 
True true :D

Q: How to prepare parents for B2 VISA interview?

BabuI am living in USA with H1B VISA. My parents are in India. We ave applied B2 VISA for my parents and scheduled Interview. However my mother is not educated and my father is went to only high school. For them the names of cities, employers are worked are very new and they can not pronounce properl...

Can someone flag this or vote too close this please? I can't do it for some reason. :/ I believe my flag was marked as helpful and now it doesn't allow me to close vote...
 
I could, but it would be binding, and I am not familiar with the community standards here.

Well of course you shouldn't mjolnir it milord!
Congratulations on the new job btw! I wrote it on the blog too, but I'm not sure if you got a chance to actually see it :/
@jmac So what's the deal are you working two jobs now?
 
@AdityaSomani I did see it, thanks. I read all the comments, but obviously couldn't respond to everyone (not really the format for it).
I'm just working one job, this one, full-time.
 
I see I see :D
 
Yeah, it's an absolute joy to be working for SE/from home. I work a lot more than I used to, but mostly because I want to.
 
@jmac Hey, you were working for SE before too! It's just that now you're getting paid for it! ;)
i just absolutely loooove the idea of "I'm a moderator on ALL sites" But unfortunately it makes everything way too hard I guess. Just like right now, votes are binding. Magical Thor powers, then whatever you tend to say is taken in a completely different light. It would be a very strange and odd feeling I suppose. Much like Superman.
 
@AdityaSomani Nah, it's a lot like having a diamond on one site. Use common sense, defer to the community when possible, don't hesitate to act when merited. Be back in 30 or so
 
2:09 PM
Well... Yeah... But being Thor on one site is probably a very strange feeling as well.
 
@MarkMayo I rollbacked to the wrong version. Hippietrail wrote the lowercase "i", FWIW.
 
2:25 PM
@AdityaSomani Nah, not really strange, you get used to it.
 
2:59 PM
I'm sure you do. :) That's why they chose you man. ;)
