« first day (1705 days earlier)   

12:22 AM
Well...Google'ing my name has been interesting
 
@KyleKanos Real or user?
 
@0celo7 User
Most of what isn't SE-related things has been a particular person crying about me on another particular member's blog.
> My idea is that one of us casts the initial reopen vote on a question that should not be closed, then we let 3 trolls say "leave closed" which is what they always do anyway :-/, then the other of us two puts the question back into the reopen queue, before the reopen votes it has attained so far decay, by voting to reopen too.
So this was found in there (just before I was laughably claimed to "the dark side")
No idea if this "plan" was put into action or not, but
Rather humorously,
> Kyle Kanos is such a big anti-scientific, anti-academic SE gullomized zombique politician,
I'm anti-scientific, anti-academic?
 
@KyleKanos Not even wrong.
 
And a politician to boot!
 
You are leaving academia.
 
12:29 AM
Because of personal reasons, I don't think academia should not exist at all
> Kyle Kanos should immediately be banned from reviewing questions. Together with @ChrisWhite and probably others of the >3000 k users who have no technical knowledge about theoretical physics themself but are politically hyperactive in the review queue, such a gang of anti theoretical physics zealots can do a lot of damage to the site if they decide to systematically start persecuting string theory questions ...
 
@KyleKanos Whoever wrote this is the hero we need, but do not deserve.
 
I'll not name names.
 
Hmm, the use of the word "zealot" hints at the Czech Quantum Wrangler.
Whoops.
 
Well, that's the blog, not the author of the text
 
Did you edit that?
Google fails to return an answer.
 
12:43 AM
Only superficial edit to the latest
(eliminated a link)
 
Google says your name is in those posts, but control F does not show it.
 
Yep. Have to know how to Firefox stuff too
Look at the source
 
Why does the tried and true method fail?
 
IDK. Probably the way disqus works.
 
I'm lost.
Can you please name the dude so I can find this?
I've read everything.
I bet it was Dilaton.
 
12:48 AM
Already said I'll not name names. But I've given you the means to find it. Just check the page source and then search
 
The hell does that mean?
I'm not a CS major.
 
Apparently I've been pinned on pinterest
@0celo7 Neither was I
 
@KyleKanos Close enough to pass for one.
 
...because I know how to use a web browser?
 
Yeah, this is complex shit.
 
12:50 AM
Or because I can write programs?
 
That too.
 
I read every comment...where the hell is this?
 
Have you ever right-clicked on a webpage
 
Why would anyone do that?
Ahhh, was the comment deleted by The Czech String Warrior?
 
12:54 AM
I'm not sure
I honestly don't know how those things work
 
I found it in the source.
 
I'm glad you know how to right click
 
@KyleKanos Right click is not a thing on Macs, FYI.
 
Control-click
Or is it Meta-click?
 
I'm one of the few Mac people who enable a right click.
@KyleKanos Probably.
@KyleKanos Reference?
 
12:56 AM
The Command key (⌘), also historically known as the Apple key, clover key, open-Apple key, pretzel key, propeller key, squiggly button, the quad button, or meta key, is a modifier key present on Apple keyboards. The Command key's purpose is to allow the user to enter keyboard commands in applications and in the system. An "extended" Macintosh keyboard — the most common type — has two command keys, one on each side of the space bar; some compact keyboards have one only on the left. The "⌘" symbol (the "looped square") was chosen after Steve Jobs decided that the use of the Apple logo in the menu...
 
@KyleKanos Oh
Meta key. I get it.
there it is
@KyleKanos I need you to flip a coin. If we get the same side, I'll get Witcher 2.
 
Done
Heads
 
$20 down the drain.
Unless the game is really good, which ACM promised it would be.
Now I just need to find an ATM near work.
@KyleKanos What coin was it?
 
....Python
Just used a random number generator, if less than 0.5 it's tails, else heads
 
CS nerd....
 
1:09 AM
I didn't have a coin but I did have a computer
 
You don't keep your change jar at your desk?
 
@0celo7 Uh, nope. It's really just an appropriately-sized table
Apparently my comment to this (deleted) question gave me the label "curt" (though I initially misread it as something else..)
 
Oh wow, I walked by SCOTUS the other day and didn't notice.
 
The comment was We are not mind readers here, we do not know what issue you are having in order to recommend you anything. Please add more information about what specifically is giving you trouble
@0celo7 All of them or just one?
 
@KyleKanos The court building.
 
1:13 AM
Oh
Yeah, it's missable
 
I noticed the Lib of Congress.
 
1:38 AM
@KyleKanos Why do you hate string theory questions?
 
I don't.
I made a comment once along the lines of it not being testable, so is it truly a science?
 
It's not testable now.
It's testable in principle.
 
I still think the question is valid
 
It's semantics.
Depends how you define science.
 
One of the characteristics is testability
 
1:41 AM
Testability now or when the experimentalists have it figured out?
 
@0celo7 And that's ultimately the question!
We clearly cannot actually test it now, but in theory we can. Does that make it a science or not?
 
If Einstein developed GR in 1850, he would not be doing science?
 
What does 55 years make?
 
Testability.
*65
 
It is a tough one to say Einstein was doing math
(especially knowing now that it ended up being verified by experiments)
 
1:49 AM
@KyleKanos Experiments that were (probably) not possible in 1850. Mercury's orbit can be verified, but a hellish string theory calculation will show that as well.
 
2:45 AM
 
@KyleKanos Why is Windows limiting this flashdrive partition to 200MB?
 
@0celo7 How big should it be?
 
What is the maximum? It's a 128GB stick with a 40GB partition that I want Windows to recognize.
 
Hmm. That is a problem
 
Problem?
 
2:53 AM
It's not a problem?
 
It is, I thought you were referring to the 40GB or 128GB or something else.
As in "there's your problem"
 
No, I was remarking that it's so small compared to what it should be
But I've not a clue, I'm not a Windows guy
 
I have a 32GB stick that works like a charm, but it's USB 2.0.
The 128GB stick is 3.0
I did the partitioning in OSX...tomorrow I'll completely wipe it and try to do everything in Windows.
 
@0celo7 what is the difference between 2.0 and 3.0?
 
@StanShunpike Noticeable speed difference.
 
3:02 AM
Ah, I suppose if you are using it like a hard drive that is necessary.
I just use mine to back up music.
 
Yeah, but I don't like waiting.
And 128GB could be used to extend the hard drive.
Heck, I think this stick is faster than my old HDD.
 
3:43 AM
Another mysterious occurrence of a user having insufficient rep being able to access chat.

Q: Define what an unclear question is

giulio_hepIs this question really unclear? http://t.co/xkAlTGdvBb What is the difference between an unclear question and a question you are unable to answer?
