@hippietrail don't think low of yourself, you are not just a star, you are a bunch of them
 
Yes. A bunch of hairy hitchhiking stars. :P
 
1:44 PM
@joernano Thanks! I did however managed to order my glasses and bottles
hopefully the 3 days promise on delivery is valid
it has been interesting
You apparently need to have a social security number to order stuff in Itlay
 
they asked you for a Codice Fiscale to make the purchase?
next time make a valid one out of your data using this: zip-codes.nonsolocap.it/codice-fiscale
they put it on the invoice and that's it there's no cross-checks of any kind
 
@Joernano I used this one: paginebianche.it/codice-fiscale?
@markmayo still not convinced on Wikidata? Can I do some more convincing?
 
@andra regarding wikidata
what is it actually.. I am not getting the idea behind it...
"what is it" the for dummies version please...
 
@menotalk it is a database
But instead of table you do statements or claims as they are called in wikidata
 
1:59 PM
database engine you can use? or a database filled with data for you to query against?
NoSQL style?
 
yes
 
what kind of API it has?
 
REST calls is
 
nice
 
2:03 PM
queries are complicated...
 
@andra works too
@MeNoTalk for non-techies yes. :)
 
hahahahaha
I am not used to the noSQL style ..
TREE, STRING, CLAIM....
lots of stuff I need to understand first..
CLAIM[31:(TREE[12280][][279])] AND TREE[183][150][17,131]
 
@menotalk it is best to first try to add, edit some claims
 
i am trying.. its just does not use strings, first you have to get the numbers..
 
It takes some time to learn, but the real benefit is the large community which will keep your dataset up te data

Q: Midnight check-in: Hostel in Paris

Vessilli ZaytsevI am travelling to Paris on the 22nd of December. I was looking for a youth hostel close to Paris city centre. But the problem is that I will arrive in Paris at midnight. So, I am wondering whether I will get any hostel in Paris which will allow me to check in at midnight. Will public transport b...

Can I suggest businesses (hotels, hostels) in an answer?
 
Sometimes yes
Especially if the question is specific enough that you could name all those that fit (or most of them)
Just mentioning one because you happen to like it is a bit more problematic I would think
But we have questions mentioning chains and the like
Note that in this case hotels are not really relevant
 
Ok. Yest hotels are not relevant in terms of the recommendation. However imho late check-in rules apply to them too.
So basically in this particular case I could recommend a hostel close to a metro station.
Anyhow I don't really feel like recommending any hostel in Paris seeing as I think they are all money-making machines that don't really make any effort to improve their hospitality. Simply because people will always come to Paris no matter what. And hotels are just too damn expensive.
