@ByteCommander now onto CVs for me
my battery is dying... :-/
12:15 AM
guys, check the date on this question. 15.10 was still supported in 2015 askubuntu.com/review/close/621823
Ubuntu doesn't lock anymore.
+ just turns off the screens.
And pressing a key takes me back to where I left it.
No lockscreen. No password request.
It just stopped doing that a few days ago.
what about Super + L
Help request: Long story short, my sudo is broken and to fix it I need sudo permissions, I can't login as root witohut sudo
12:19 AM
@edwinksl Sorry, that's what I meant.
Huh? Where is the edit?
@Downgoat You need to boot into single user mode or use a LiveCD.
@Downgoat Recovery>>Root Prompt is your friend
I suspect this guy has something to do with the flood of EOL flags meta.askubuntu.com/a/16131/274320
@Downgoat there are questions on this site for this
@NathanOsman I do not have physical access to the computer :|
@ByteCommander tag
@Downgoat RIP
@Downgoat Then it's impossible.
@Downgoat well then, i am not sure what else you can do
12:20 AM
wait seriously
@Zacharee1 Oh!
@ByteCommander lol fail :p
screen brightness was too low, didn't see it >.<
get my dark script
the green becomes very obvious
eww le spooks
12:21 AM
aha! I think I can ssh as root
shit my root password isn't working
That's... something you'll want to fix later.
@Downgoat there is a root password?
@Downgoat did you set a root password?
maybe gksu?
12:22 AM
@Zacharee1 over SSH?
make an X11 tunnel ;p
Only works if X11 is installed.
And no, gksu will not work. It doesn't have the sticky bit set.
@Zacharee1 Oh god. Not him again.
@NathanOsman well it wasn't exactly serious
Ohkay, my review queues are all empty and so is my battery.
Well, good night finally.
12:31 AM
I guess I'm saying this for the 3rd time now today.
hm... i wonder if i have any reversal candidates...
@KazWolfe go CV
my queue is down to 191 :D
Q: Please don't flag old questions as EOL

Zacharee1This discussion recently popped up on Active Questions because of a new answer. Ever since then, there have been EOL flags in the Close Vote queue for questions that were not EOL when asked; there are some from 2015, 2012, 2011, etc. None of these flags should have been cast, but I believe that ...

Q: Where is the configuration file for terminal keybindings?

David JamesI would like to inspect / change / remap the keybindings in my Ubuntu server terminal. (I'm not using any GUI. I'm referring the bare-bones terminal, TTY1).

Q: sudo apt-get update returns an error

hienz1I'm pretty sure this is a duplicate somewhere. I apologize for the repeat. I'm running Xubuntu 14.04. For some odd reason my pc is running slow today, so I thought it might have something to do with the software, so I did an update, and sudo apt-get update returns an error: E: Could not get lock...

Q: How do I install Flash on Ubuntu 16.04?

Roy RodriguezI'm trying to visit a website that requires the use of Adobe Flash, but all it's doing is giving me the following error: Please install the Flash player in order to view the broadcast https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer Is there anything I can do to resolve this error and install Flash o...

I need to add HTTPS to my script...
@Zacharee1 linky pls?
my dark theme script?
github page pls
don't install it just yet
12:54 AM
200 commits ._.
@KazWolfe what'd you do? I can't accept or view online
you messed it up lol :D
i submitted a PR with HTTP/HTTPS support
resubmit maybe?
And you patched it a different bad way
well ok then :p
12:57 AM
just accept and overwrite
merge the PR, overwriting any changes.
I can't :(
why not
what error?
lol what even happened? isn't this just a merge?
zach edited as i submitted a merge request
I need to use command line to verify
12:58 AM
@Zacharee1 putting le git skillz to work
^^ funny
well I think it worked...
guys, I kind of need a good review on bash and REGEX
but is this a good regex for an IP address?
$IP =~ [0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}
if [[ IP =~ [0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3} ]]; then
    echo "Valid IP"
@Zacharee1 nope merge is still open
@IanC i liked the chapters about bash in The Linux Command Line
it's a free book
1:12 AM
it was the book I read, but I really need to read it again
I kinda forgot lots of stuff, so I need to open it everytime I'm working on a script
which is kind of frustrating, having to relearn stuff to code
well most people certainly don't write shell scripts every day... i will soon forget all my bash too :/
@Zacharee1 Accept the pull request ;-;
regex would be useful to memorize though @edwinksl, and at least the basic syntax. I feel kind of lame having to check the if-case-for-test syntax everytime I write a script haha
@KazWolfe but it said it was merged o-O
This is about burning a CentOS image: askubuntu.com/questions/507450/…
1:16 AM
conflicts needs resolution. see the online thing
@chaskes still on topic. It's about burning ISOs to a DVD from Ubuntu
@KazWolfe GitHub Desktop has no instructions on how to do it
and I don't have the CLI
github online will help
@Zacharee1 I guess you're right, but it's really a CentOS bug that the image is so large.
@IanC there is nothing much to memorize for regex, at least for me. it is more about getting practice, but i also don't get to use regex a lot daily :/
1:18 AM
it will guide you @Zacharee1
@chaskes yeah, but the Q isn't about that :p
@KazWolfe I really don't want to install the CLI for Windows
there's a resolve conflicts thingy on the webpage
it finally opened the View in GH Dekstop link
in GH Desktop
@Zacharee1 or give kazwolfe collaborator permissions to your repo
1:20 AM
do i need to teach you github lol
you did
uh oh
look at the readme :D
oh god. i see what you did
the HEAD thing you or something put in broke the script
1:22 AM
no, that was github
@KazWolfe woah fancy button
remove these lines:

// @include      askubuntu.com*
// @include      askubuntu.com*

// @include      meta.askubuntu.com*

>>>>>>> refs/remotes/origin/master
and <<<<<<< HEAD
or just give me maintainer powers :D
I thought I did edit it...
@KazWolfe hao
1:23 AM
add kazwolfe
@edwinksl for some reason the regex is not working on the test, I'm almost skipping it for now, I'm the only one who will use the script anyways :p
I don't think Tampermonkey likes the wildcards for HTTP/S
it does, @Zacharee1, it's the spec.
1:24 AM
then what's going on
it doesn't like the 40 entries
remove all of these:
// @include      askubuntu.com*
// @include      askubuntu.com*

// @include      meta.askubuntu.com*
// @include      meta.askubuntu.com*

// @include      meta.stackoverflow.com*

// @include      chat.stackexchange.com*
// @include      chat.stackexchange.com*
how did those get there? I swear they were deleted
@KazWolfe I sent a collab invite
i can fix
so i will
or you got it lol
yay git
still not working?
weird. Tampermonkey didn't actually update it..
well... there you go lol
so snazzy install button is snazzy.
1:27 AM
if you want, @Zacharee1, I can just run maintenance on your repo.
oh plz
So stuff like issue tagging, merge management, the readme stuff, et al...
wanna help me comment? >:P
leave the code to you because i don't understand css at all.
1:28 AM
finally, it's working!!!
if [[ "$IP" =~ ^[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}$ ]]; then
@IanC that matches 332.852.19.965 which is not a valid IP.
@KazWolfe well it just takes searching the class (without the dot) in the Dev Console and then hovering over it to see what it's for
@IanC oh yeah remember to escape the period
@KazWolfe yeah, you're right, but it's supposed to be just a simple check to avoid some typos while running the script
not that writing a number higher than 255 couldn't happen, I'll think about some better regex later
1:32 AM
@edwinksl the issue was actually not escaping it and not using ^ and $, so if there was a valid IP inside an invalid one he would accept it (like 1232.34.23.12334 -> is valid so he would accept it)
hey @Zacharee1, what do you think of the name StackExchange@Night?
Or Night@StackExchange?
@KazWolfe Thanks! That will suit better :)
sure @KazWolfe
I'm not exactly in love with se-dark :p
especially since there's going to be a file named sedark.css for the actual SE website eventually
woah kaz cleaning house for zach
changes to readme pushed
1:46 AM
@KazWolfe is your issue for me or general?
in general
hence the help wanted tag
@KazWolfe maybe I should make some previews for the sites?
That's not a bad idea
you should make a github-pages thing for it.
Hi all :D
how does one folder
i got tricked
doing it now
nice b8 m8
srsly tho
hao folder
2:09 AM
you maek folder
they forked it instead of PR github.com/bvanrijn/se-dark/commit/…
you fork first
then you submit a pr
GH hao werk
@KazWolfe how do I make folders in my repo?
@Zacharee1 mkdir them, and then git add
or add folder in thingy.
2:11 AM
note that if the dir is empty, git ignores it
there's no way to make online?
@Zacharee1 go to create new file
then add directory as needed in the path
2:13 AM
@Zacharee1 I made a new branch.
but y do dis online like a n00b
gh-pages. Usethis for website.
@Zacharee1 i see it worked
2:15 AM
or @Zacharee1
yeah but Kaz made a branch ;p
why are you being hard lol
Scroll down
There will be a "GitHub Pages" thing
No, it's published
to the branch you made
can I delete files in this branch?
without affecting master?
2:17 AM
you can
@Zacharee1, just use the auto-page maker.
@Zacharee1 hehe, le pain of learning git
github is painful at first lol
OK opened generator
yeah the fork PR workflow might be unfamiliar to some
start making a basic page lol @Zacharee1
2:19 AM
doing it
i could make a site for you using pelican SSG but i think you just need a single html file for homepage and that's it right?
then no need for a SSG. just write good old html from scratch
time to test the script for real, I've been editing the test on stdout for now, now I'll edit the actual configuration files as root, so hopefully I didn't screw up anywhere :p
@IanC good luck
2:23 AM
wait, before I do this
can I redirect the output to a file after reading it like:

cat somefile | sed "s/pattern/newtext/" > somefile
or will it erase the file before reading it?
why do you need to cat
OK site started
why not do sed -i 's/pattern/newtext/g' somefile
@Zacharee1 fancy fancy
2:29 AM
@edwinksl well, that actually solves the redirection issue too!
@IanC yeah when you have a pipe after a cat, most likely you don't need said cat
@edwinksl I was worried the redirection would open the file in write mode, erasing every content of it before cat piped to sed, so it would end up erasing the file
the only reason you thought you needed to redirect to file was because you had a cat
just use sed -i
@Zacharee1, take a look at the top :)
Ahh. cat abuse.
2:36 AM
@KazWolfe mad skillz
Pro Tip: if you are working out on a treadmill, don't fall off...
that's what I mean when I say I need to read the bash book over again :p
@TheXed that's good advice, had a bad day at gym?
Well no...not until I got ready to turn it off.. I reached up to turn it off, my arm got tangled in my headphones...my phone went flying, bounced off the treadmill onto the floor, and I went the other way...
but on the bright side, I learned that the Microsoft Lumia 950 is extremely durable...not even a scratch...
and it is naked...
did anyone see you?
No I was the only one there...
2:42 AM
get embarrassed in front of any attractive members of the opposite sex?
then you're fine.
Just the camera...
if nobody else saw it, it didn't happen
it'll be on youtube by next Thursday.
Yeah probably,,,
I don't go to the Gym often because I usually get my steps in during the day...but when I do I always make sure to cause my self great bodily harm with the gym equipment and destroy some piece of electronic equipment :-P
2:58 AM
who the heck thought it was a good idea to have gestures on a mouse pad?
3:15 AM
@TheXed I think the apple people started it?
everytime I touch my mouse bad it thinks I want to go back to the previous page on my browser...so damn annoying
wooo, script is working and I didn't break the OS (so far!) :D
3:33 AM
I think it is just time for me to quit, i just poured water all over the couch...
At least it was just water.
well, at least it's just water
barely missed my laptop...
You guys should see my wound though...it is pretty gnarly looking...
looks like a road rash?
Anyone think "Lunix" was a little funny?
3:37 AM
A tad, perhaps.
BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called " xenix", which was written by Microsoft for the US government. These programs are used by hackers to break into other people's computer systems to steal credit card numbers. They may also be used to break into people's stereos to steal their music, using the "mp3" program. Torovoltos is a notorious hacker, responsible for writing many hacker programs, such as "telnet", whi
