o/
sigh
changes last night went well, carried on til 12:30 tho
and as predicted i'm half asleep now.
 
Why Windows ...
 
10:04 AM
dem notifications.
 
10:59 AM
Looks like it was caused by a corrupt notification database. But seems like it mostly resolved itself.
 
For some odd reason, my dad goes through a fair number of sim card trays. The last one was "just" off so I ended up lightly sanding the top bit to fit. My dad broke it too....
I ended up ordering ones from 2 sellers, one from one, and 2 (dual sim, and dual sim/single sim/SD)....
I figure one of them would fit. The former arrived and it does so my dad's going to have spares, assuming they fit
 
"sim card trays"?
 
11:27 AM
Why is he even removing it from the phone? (presuming it is what I think it is)
 
@djsmiley2k he travels fairly often I guess
otherwise I donno
@WilliamMariager well in most newer phones, since they're just a sealed block, you put a tool into a hole, and a tray you put the sim cards in pops out?
 
Ah, so it was what I assumed. I just found it weird how you'd go through a lot of those. But I guess traveling is one way.
 
I think he's on his third now?
also, I think the last one was really poor quality plastic
it kinda crumbled
 
 
1 hour later…
Bob
12:53 PM
I've never even gotten close to damaging my original one o.O
 
@Bob my dad has the heavy handed perk ;p
 
superglue.
 
@djsmiley2k it broke in about .... 4 different places
 
1:11 PM
Perk: Extra Heavy Handed
 
@WilliamMariager My brother inhertited that too lol
 
1:30 PM
@JourneymanGeek o_O
superglue your dad. to the wall.
No more traveling, no more problem
 
2:05 PM
> I had a client file for divorce because every morning his wife would ask him how he takes his coffee...for seven years.
@djsmiley2k Fun fact: duct tape is actually strong enough that you can use it to tape an adult to the wall, off the ground...
 
@rahuldottech Have you seen the photo?
With the guy duct taped to the ceiling at a LAN party
 
@bertieb can't say I have
 
@rahuldottech Boy do I have a treat for you!
There's a tumblr-reaction version but it's a bit sweary to upload here
The invisible flag brigade etc
 
2:31 PM
@bertieb lmaoo
 
2:51 PM
@bertieb I'm not sure if it's weird, that I can imagine this happening in some of my younger days.
 
ah the days when counterstrike was cool
 
that too ol
CS 1.3
remember the chaos that 1.4 caused
those dirty dirty ak47s
and the time i was on the bridge near the spawn of aztec, they were planting the bomb
I started to line up a shot through the door (so blind), my team screaming 'just run in and shoot him!!!!'. I sneezed. I fired. I got a headshot.
 
@Burgi adjusts pocket protector
IT'S STILL COOL
 
@bertieb no, no it's not
 
2:56 PM
please tell me that the binary on this translates to the ascii characuter codes for FCEN....
because that'd actually be cool
 
it is a micro transaction bot filled hellscape now
 
@Burgi There's transactions in oldskool CS?
 
01101110 01000011 01000101 01001110 - omfg it does!
nCEN
 
oh sorry i thought you meant the new version was cool
 
wow, well played whoever made that.
 
2:58 PM
@djsmiley2k Weird casing tho
@Burgi Oh good lord no
 
my modem was never fast enough for CS
 
CS:GO? More like CS: Get Lost
and other witticisms
 
3:17 PM
lol
 
3:40 PM
ATM0 IS INITINIAALAIAIIISING.
 
Don't get it
 
Alice in Wonderland, two potions iirc, one to make you larger, one to make you smaller.
 
Bits of toadstoool / mushroom?
 
yey armed police and sniffer dogs are all out again
 
3:50 PM
That reminds me
 
tho yesterday or day before there was a targeted knife/machette attack outside KFC so...
 
I asked for more YT API quota
 
lets hope they shoot some people to make sure they hit the quota's that i'm told to expect.
 
I think their form is targeted towards businesses using the API for apps and such
Let's not fan the flames, eh?
Particularly if no-one is looking to be convinced
Oh, also while I'm thinking of it, I think my credits could be used for Google Console stuff @djsmiley2k
I will see if extra YT API quota is also chargeable, because I'll use it for that if so
Otherwise I'm happy to let archiveteam burn thru it if permitted
 
Why are you complaining about downvotes when you haven't got any? In any case downvote comments are not obligatory and complaining about them is likely to result in more. — DavidPostill ♦ 1 min ago
Me feeling grumpy ...
 
4:10 PM
You can't write without read access as writing requires reading the file system. — DavidPostill ♦ 20 secs ago
Now I'm getting even more grumpy.
 
Different on Linux!
Not sure what you'd do with write-only access to a file
 
@bertieb Really? Question is talking about access to a complete removable disk.
 
@DavidPostill Will have a look
 
You need to read the disk in order to write to it ...
 
My understanding is that you can set perms that way
And indeed they are set for some devices/interfaces (eg /dev/sound maybe?)
But Windows, removable disk write only..?
My knowledge there is lacking
There's probably some very hacky way of doing it that Mark Russinovich or similar would know
That question feels a bit XY-y
 
4:17 PM
@bertieb I don't think so. If you can't read the disk you don't know where to write the data (as in where the free space is on the disk).
 
That's entirely possible
 
I'm always happy to be proven wrong of course ...
 
I guess it depends at what level the permissions operate
Which feels like a question itself
I could quite believe that write() or WriteFile() or whatever could know lots about underlying filesystem etc, but write would fail/exit early if it didn't have permission to write there
(IANAWFSP)
 
 
I guess allowing it could permit information leakage
"Hey, I want to write to this file: `X:\foo\file`"
"(Has write access) Completed"
"Hey, I want to write to this file: `X:\bar\file`"
"(Has write access but path doesn't exist)" Path error"
Then you could crudely map out tree
But IANASR either
And I'm sure much smarter folks than I have worked this all out
 
4:26 PM
@DavidPostill not sure any fs actually requires read to write to a disk
but to append, you do
@bertieb whaaaaaaaaaat
@bertieb immutable log if done right.
 
@djsmiley2k Oh, good point
Similarly, immutable backups also seem like another candidate
But I think write-only would still let you overwrite in those cases
 
yah, in those cases you want append only.
and in windows iirc write != edit
write == overwrite, edit = write anywhere in the file
etc. permissions are complicated.
append == writeonly to the end of the file
 
ffs gonna have to figure out how i'm gonna disable this keyboard
 
This is somewhat beyond my comfort zone of knowledge ;-P
 
4:30 PM
windows is POSIX compliant, so it can do all of these things
 
But I can blithely speculate :D
 
indeed
 
I think I'm gonna have to post on Google Groups to find out about this API quota dealie
It's not a prospect I look forward to
But then knowing Google, they will probably close Groups
And move all official support to a subreddit
Seems plausible
 
@djsmiley2k It probably can but said user is trying to paste a file to his read only removable drive.
He probably thinks it will hide his stuff from the TLAs if he can get it to work ;)
 
5:18 PM
lol
@bertieb if only there was a question and answer site...
:D
 
@djsmiley2k Oh yeah, you're right!
Google support, now hosted by Quora
 
:D :D
 
:P
I jest, but that might actually be an improvement
 
5:45 PM
Holy (removed), Batman!
 
6:17 PM
Con someone who is interested in this stuff please tl;dr this article for me? qz.com/1650393/…
 
Someone explains "Why I’m turning my son into a cyborg"
;-P
 
@bertieb no but like what are they actually doing to their son?
Unrelatedly,
 
Yea I dunno, haven't read that far yet :P
 
> This is why brexit is happening
lmao
 
D:
It's not her fault, Marge; liquors drunkened her
 
6:41 PM
> Using these augmented reality glasses, I could read people’s faces—and so many more terrible things. I imagined using them to scan a room, reading expressions and flagging false smiles (LA and DC, I’m looking at you).
Autistic kid can't read emotion
Mum who previously worked for CIA and wrote some neural net stuff before it was a thing, writes app to read emotions
doesn't release it ot the world and sundry, turns out to be evil biatch.
I might of made the last bit up
 
7:35 PM
...and finally updated my phone.
 
7:58 PM
Oh hey migraine
I wonder what triggered you
 
i'm lucky i guess, never had one
never wanted one
 
Agree
I'm lucky in that I get them very rarely
This one's aura is taking up pretty much the entire right hand side of my vision
 
yah that stuff sounds crazy :/
 
Yea
Interesting from a brain perspective tho
 
yuyp
 
8:00 PM
Annoyingly I just made dinner
But if I eat it it'll wreck me
 
you got some kinda meds?
 
gut stasis + food = very bad times
(at least once before anyway)
Not really no
Happens so rarely
Oh man I have never had aura quite as strong as this
Vibrating jaggy lines
NotDog would pay good money for drugs that did this
 
do i need to tell you to go lie down in the dark or contact a doctor?
i'm guessing you'll get better eventually?
don't go having an enurism or something
else bulb won't pay.
 
Yeah it'll be fine :)
Hah
 
8:04 PM
Your completely altruistic concern is touching ;-P
 
One guy at work was saying when he gets them, he just starts to completely loose any sight on one side
and I'm just like :O
I mean, it's bad enough that my brain convinces me that I don't wish to exist in any shape or form.
Or all the other odd things it tried to convince me
 
Yup
Also not fu
:-\
fun
 
well no but i'm glad I can 'trust' my body physically
to a point at least.
whjat really interests me is the links between physical, and mental things
 
Yes indeed
 
I don't kjnow if you heard, they've found that people with annorexia seem to havedifferent activations happening around the processing of fats
 
8:17 PM
We learn more and more about them
Yes, partly metabolic
And (can't remember if true, but) genetic too?
 
seems to be yah
 
The news around it certainly seemed to make it out to be a separate thing
As opposed to one causing the other
either way round
 
i've personally noticed (and researched a little) a weird link between depression, GERD, pyloric stenosis, and flexible joints.
 
The links between gut biome and depression are interesting too
 
Imagine your brain telling you constantly "youre not processing fats"
 
8:19 PM
Ah, yes
(and dental health IIRC?)
 
oh yah the dental stuff is kind of obvious tho
GERD causes dental problems expecially when not treated
who'd thought, stomach acid is bad for teeth?
 
Yup
I mean dental health and body/mental health, sorry for ambiguity :D
I blame migraine brain
Not 100% on dental health's effect on mental health
But weirder things are true
gestures to political situation worldwide
 
mouths are close to brains, I can imagine weirder things than the bacteria in your mouth causing changes in brain chemistry
certainly like the bacteria in your gut doing so.
 
Just when I thought my grumpiness was subsiding ...
You need to give a lot more information than just "not working" — DavidPostill ♦ 44 secs ago
 
:D
'be nice'
 
8:31 PM
That was nice. You haven't seen me being not nice :)
 
8:46 PM
@bertieb nooooooooooo
if that guy gets a working application for downloading google photos, I'm well 'appy!
 
Yup!

Can anyone find the duplicate question to this: superuser.com/questions/1461082/… I thought I authored an answer that explained you have to select the user account but I can't find it.
 
11:42 PM
@Ramhound can't find it in your answers. Post an answer ;p
