@Prasad Why you will uninstall LAMP if the problem is in P (php)? That is not logical..
If so, re-install PHP.
I tried reinstalling Apache and PHP and didn't help
@AbrahamVanHelpsing Hush.
I think this either needs upticks or deleted, but I'm not sure which...I'm pretty sure the user in question is being obtuse: askubuntu.com/questions/260397/…
@Seth Huh?
12:05 AM
@AbrahamVanHelpsing hmmm....
@FEichinger Huh??
What are you requesting clarification about?
@Seth I ... don't really get the point, I guess.
Of you quoting that, I mean.
just teasing.
11 mins ago, by AbrahamVanHelpsing
php is evil anyway. use some ruby or python framework
Oh, Hush!
@Prasad - Does it download the actual file? As in: What are the contents of the file?
@Prasad - And, secondly, does a simple HTML file get displayed properly?

5 mins ago, by mateo_salta
@mateo_salta kinda... bright.
I don't like change! D:
hm, should that be red, or orange?
Salmon really.
@FEichinger Change doesn't like us either, that's the way it is. :)
12:18 AM
There is no such thing as Salmon, period.
Feb 13 at 22:26, by mateo_salta
nah, looks more like Bubblegum Crisis Salmon color to me
@FEichinger So true! :D
@FEichinger none of those matches the color.
"Maraschino" kinda does, I think.
Good grief. What kind of color chart is this?
12:21 AM
The reason we call our Bubblecum Crisis Salmon "red" for simplicity's sake.
Stop arguing over it. Call it red, cause it ain't pink.
salmon is certainly a color. i had a boss who wore salmon colored jean shorts and a shrek green polo to work at least once a week
the sad part is that when he did, he sorta looked like shrek
lol, there should be a UX post about this.
Salmon is a color, 'cause it isn't red and its not pink.
@mateo_salta Wanna do the honors? :D:D
so you see how it's kinda shrek-y
12:36 AM
I need this mousepad: rlv.zcache.com/…
Q: How to best Classify color names in a system of colors

mateo_saltaMany times in using general color names in communication, i.e. Red and Green, users are confused when the color is a non-pure form of the color. For Example, in referring to the Red-ish color of the error box on Ask Ubuntu: There is much debate as to what to classify the color as, Here are so...

@mateo_salta +1
you cut out my salmon comments. i'm alternately overjoyed and irritated
@mateo_salta Why am I always involved in such stuff? :(
oh? can you edit bookmarks
12:49 AM

Salmon is a color!

how about this?
It's an interesting question, but outside of the scope of this site. — JohnGB 10 secs ago
@mateo_salta heh. either way. i was just getting my knickers in a twist for no good reason
12:51 AM
How is that outside the scope of friggin UX?
maybe too broad.
"How to communicate colours?" is a more creator-sided discussion, but it's definitely a UX discussion.
if the freakin nintendo user interface question is on topic...how is communicating a color off-topic?
Did you get a close vote?
@AbrahamVanHelpsing And what about the coffee bean one?
12:52 AM
That's gonna be a fun meta post, I guess. :P
Who's gonna do the honors?
You pick a good question. One or the other:
"Why were the buttons B A?"
"How do I communicate shades of red more clearly?"
I don't have a UX account yet, I believe, so ... not me.
@FEichinger You need one.
Every SE user needs a UX account.
I don't want one :(
That makes me feel dirty, like having an SO account.
12:54 AM
here some one read up on this, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_term make me an answer about using some standard terms(if interested of course), en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISCC-NBS_system
@AbrahamVanHelpsing Not the nintendo one for sure.
@AbrahamVanHelpsing Both are great and fully in the scope of UX.
I like using "B A" in an A or B question...I'm so punny.
Q: Blue or red color for counter of new messages?

UX-GeekI'm trying to implement an inbox for users and there is an indicator in the site that shows you how many new messages you have. When I use blue for notifications it nicely fits in the site, and red is OK. From a UX point of view, is it a good practice to show new messages in blue or we should s...

Is a a mod around?
@Seth I love how the accepted answer gives no clue whatsoever about which answers lead to which colours.
12:57 AM
@FEichinger IKR. The second answer has the most upvotes.
UX - answering your questions with questions.
Sooo ... I'm now gonna do my first time installing ubuntu server to an actual machine, rather than a VM.
My last resort in getting that PC to work. The one with the no-drivers-for-windows-anymore network card.
dinner calls.
trying to get step one of MOM on html/django done this weekend. the menu/overlay system. the map system and isometric browser for battle are already available via api from three.js
Spam user if a mod drops in.
^^ I wish that existed on facebook

2:23 AM
@Abraham: In regards to your question earlier, I always add .pyc at a minimum to .gitignore .
It gets a bit tricky when it comes to settings.py though.
...since those are installation-dependent.
So what I usually do is create another file named base_settings.py and store all installation independent settings in there. Then at the top of settings.py I do this:
from base_settings import *
Then I add all installation dependent settings after that line. I can also override settings that way as well.
(This is all from memory, so I might have missed something. Hopefully you get the general idea, though.)
2:49 AM
Screw my network.
I really need to get a new switch here ...
i should start lying and say i'm 20.
people keep freaking out because of my age, it's starting to get annoying.
@jrg You're making me feel old, for chrissake!
you're mature for your age james
why even mention your age. it shouldn't matter
i like cat gifs, i found a awesome gif of some pink princess flipping a table and i will tell terrible jokes with anyone who will listen.
@bcbc because I still haven't figured out a good way of answering the question "What do you do for a living"
3:00 AM
maybe "I'm a student"?
then there is the follow up: Where do you go to college?
"Oh, I'm still in high school".
(i'm bitter, perplexed, and pretty mad about some reactions to that lately, in case you're wondering. :P)
on the other hand, it's a nice litmus test.
if they make a big deal out of it, then i probably don't want to have anything to do with them.
if they just shrug, say "thats cool" and then carry on from where we were, thats better.
I just wouldn't answer personal questions to anybody
some people (especially online) can be ... jerks
I meant: to just anybody
oh, not online.
online i have that in my profile for various things, its a public fact, not a discussion starter. Except here, where I come and rant about it to the regulars. :P
in-person at work though, even though it's a fairly small company, people are still finding that out.
it's been almost 2 years.
it's a hoot. :P
people ask you what you do for a living at work? ;)
are you familiar with ycombinator?
3:09 AM
ok, so the basic idea is ycombinator is a place where you can go, pitch your company, get feedback, maybe walk away with some money in return for a chunk of the company.
i work for a ycombinator-like place, as a quarter of their IT department. as such, i run into a lot of people, both those who work for the same people as I do, and those who are pitching their company.
sounds like interesting work
it's weird, thats for sure.
how do you juggle school, work and more importantly, askubuntu ?
school: Hands-on accounting, project management, etc is the name of the game right now. work: it's work. fun. askubuntu: idle here, fight the other mods for the right to take care of the flags, etc.

Q: Cuál versión (32 o 64 bits) de ubuntu instalar con este procesador?

Hugo Sánchez LandaverdeEnglish: Hello to all! This is the first time I have a question here. I'm going to partition my hard drive and install Ubuntu 12.04 with my Windows 7, the detail is that I have this processor: AMD Athlon II P360 2.30 GHz dual core processor, and I have doubts if I must install the 64-bit version ...

5:11 AM
What version of Ubuntu should I use with this processor?
The free one.
P --> ( P ) | P P | epsilon
use all the versions!
well, I gtg
cya tomorrow folks :D

Jokerdino is green.

Do the math.
A: Can Ubuntu repair windows 7 that won't boot?

lucysanI always check out this website before downloading registry software for pc/mac - www.microsoftapple.com - My personal favourite is smart pc fixer because it's just incredibly simple to use and does exactly what it's name suggests. A good mac alternative is detox my mac for similar reasons.

Anything wrong with that?
let me take a look but I think quite a lot
is that spam?
5:22 AM
Almost, if not yes.
Not a spam, but definitely not an answer!
he has the same link in his profile >:)
just delete it IMO.
@jokerdino There's your ticket.
yeah, all of you farm your flags.
5:23 AM
definately spam ;p
Those new blue boxes are driving me crazy
@jokerdino: yeah, only cause it makes your life easier ;p
@JourneymanGeek :P
OK, you can delete it now :P
how's it like not having to flag stuff any more? ;p
5:25 AM
@JourneymanGeek sometimes good. ;)
i cant goof up anymore, which sucks a little
that's the same issue I had when I was first able to do edits on my own ;p
You deleted him???
destroyed. bam
did you check out the website lol. he was just promoting it
5:26 AM
@jokerdino Suspension for promotion.
/me entirely approves of this ;p
well, actually he has a point there
Suspension is too much work.
Uh, bad excuse.
lol spammers shouldn't be excused. they are too evil.
5:28 AM
No big deal, but when you're dealing with a real person...
@Seth real person would make it obvious that he is real. dont worry
Oh I'm not worried.
I mean, if you search for "My personal favourite is smart pc fixer because it's just incredibly simple to use and does exactly what it's name suggests. A good mac alternative is" you would know
They are spamming the web since the start of this month. Budding spammers.
Because you didn't actually ask a real question in the beginning. You edited it in after people asked what your question was. Plus, it looks like a dupe to me. — Seth 2 mins ago
What about it?
Interesting that you got there without me linking anyone.
5:34 AM
Emphasized the wrong spot again?
I mean, I thought if I posted the q in here but I didn't
@jokerdino I don't understand.
@Seth that was perfect. >:)
Well, yeah. I didn't think that through well enough..
could have worded it better.
it's a wiki. shows itself out.
5:37 AM
I meant the picture to the right.
Oh, didn't see it.
not enough flags. boring.
well I'm off to bed.
@jokerdino Don't get me wrong. I'm not going to get all offended. If he wants to think that fine. shrug. It just shows all the more the irony and uselessness of his question/rant.
Eh, I dont have much of an opinion regarding his rant.
He is just trying to push his thought on everyone. that religions are less useful than other stuff.
5:43 AM
Just making sure you understand what I was trying to say... :)
Well, he is the villain. Not you :)
Who are you talking about?!
Q: Why do religion SE sites have more Q&A than many practically useful SE sites?

Dan Dascalescu Mi Yodeya = Q&A for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition. 6.9k questions Biblical Hermeneutics = Q&A for professors, theologians, and those interested in exegetical analysis of biblical texts. 1k questions Christianity = Q&A for committed Christians, experts in Chri...

No comments would be made by me on this.
You dont have to. :)
5:58 AM
@jokerdino: thanks, answered ;p
without mentioning my religion once ;p
(granted, there's no hinduism.se yet)
It's in the commit stage. Checkout
yeah, I think I did
6:05 AM
Well, I imagine how's life for moderators of those sites.
@IgnitE Nice and good.
actually, probably not too bad
/me thinks judaism.se is a brilliant idea
I meant in the busy way :P
their religious rules are probably the most complex of any I've heard of

Q: Why grp:lctrl_lshift_toggle still keeps right keys as switch triggers?

RogachI ran the following command in my terminal: setxkbmap -layout us,ru -option "grp:lctrl_lshift_toggle,ctrl:nocaps" but for some reason, the effect is the same if I specified "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle" - both Left-Shift+Left-Ctrl and Right-Shift+Right-Ctrl change my layout. How can I fix it?

says CD ROM something something
@mojo706 did you change BIOS to boot from USB?
yes yes everything is ok till it says its reading from CD-ROM which doesn't contain a disk

thats what I was thinking
How did you make your USB?

provided where?

with the software?
