Should I lower my minimum reason weight for autoflagging? Currently it's 280.

^ why you don't want a higher weight
 
I kinda feel this detection reason kinda sucks at its job :P
 
Most of the recent posts seem to be around 150 on weight and 3 reasons. Using max rep 1 and setting 3 reasons, it is possible to create a flagging condition for the posts. Should at least help with some auto-flagging
 
@JohnDvorak Mmm, luncheon meats

@PrincessLuna You should also set the sites to StackOverflow only for this specific kind of spam

When I set multiple autoflag condition rules for one site, they are in an OR-relation, right? Or is it AND?
Like, I have my default rule of 250/1/1 for all sites, and added a rule 140/1/3 for SO only now. What will happen?
 
@ByteCommander for SO, it will take the 140/1/3
 
1:46 PM
and ignore the 250/1/1?
 
what did I miss
@ByteCommander yes it's an OR
 
@quartata the spammer from yesterday came back
 
@PrincessLuna you can set it to 1/3/1 everywhere, not just SO

6:35 PM
@K.Dᴀᴠɪs FIRE's user-perceived response time will depend on what you've done with your mouse. FIRE pre-fetches data for the post once you mouse-over the FIRE button. Thus, if you've waited a short time between moving the mouse over the FIRE button, then it's likely that FIRE has already made the requests which it has to wait for prior to displaying the popup.
Given the nature of SOBotics, it's more likely that you are moving your mouse pointer around the chat page in order to click on other bot's reports, just happening to go over FIRE buttons. Thus, it's more likely that the user-percieved performance of FIRE is better in SOBotics. Beyond that perception issue, no, there's no reason that FIRE is actually more responsive in SOBotics than here.

I've got a weird Git scenario here
 
Hmm?
 
I have a DLL file with keys in it, and it's been committed a loooong time ago to the repo history.
 
bad Undo
 
7:51 PM
I now have a cleaned DLL, that is fully backwards compatible with the other one except not having the secrets
 
how do you feel about revisionist history
 
good Undo
 
I want to rewrite history, replacing the tainted file with the clean one
 
mkay here's what you do
 
The rewriting history part is fine, it's the "how do I actually do that" part
 
7:51 PM
every contributor to that repo will hate you for it tho
 
@ByteCommander it's basically just me. Internal work thing.
I will hate me for it, though
 
k, then you'll only hate yourself
yep
 
Yep, seen that. But everything revolves around removing files. I want to replace the file
 
You can do an interactive rebase of the commit where the file appeared first, and change it manually there. Or there's some filter-branch command that should do it automatically which I never used
 
7:53 PM
first off you're gonna need the ID
 
@ByteCommander oh, drat. That's how to do it
 
git hash-object filename
 
Isn't it easier to regenerate the keys themselves where they come from? Key's should be random, so having old keys is the same as having none keys
 
not possible for a giant bunch of reasons
 
You can do an interactive rebase but you need to prune the old blob afterwards
 
7:54 PM
Looks like the DLL was only touched in two commits, a long time ago

You need to expire the reflogs first after the rebase
Then I guess git gc --aggressive is good enough...
If you keep the hash of the object you can check to be sure it's gone for real afterwards
 
Don't really care about my local copies, actually
This is getting pushed to a GHE server, for consumption by other teams
 
7:58 PM
If you don't expire the reflogs the Git GC will think there's still references to the blob
so it won't remove it even after you've taken it out of the history
 
GitHub won't expose those anyway, right?
 
they'll be there if you clone the repo
 
J F
@Undo Old commits still show up if you go to /:user/:repo/commit/:sha
 
Reflogs aren't synced to remotes, those are local to the computer only, but the commits remain on GH

it doesn't have a way of replacing the process image like exec does
 
8:26 PM
screw windows
If the method in that answer (there's an alternative given for Windows, but I think you'd also need to start a different file because NTFS doesn't allow overwriting an open file) doesn't work, one can still manually restart there.
 
windows can surely have a program restart itself, otherwise programs like Chrome wouldn't be able to offer a "click this button to restart the program for an update" option
it's probably that the main process gets another one started up, exits, then the other process takes care of making the update happen, then restarts the original process from its updated source.
