3:00 AM
Still, we should all know what the flag button is used for
@seth sorry
yo rpi
it appears my ill-received post has caused much commotion
@KazWolfe so have a message that pings to new users "Please don't flag messages until you actually know the people here"?
@edwinksl whatever makes you say that?
@edwinksl well we are 13 year olds, or something.
3:01 AM
what is rpi?
the user who just joined the room...
that ^
So. Let's all act like 15 year olds in this chat.
At least.
it also means Raspberry Pi
@KazWolfe you make me laugh
@KazWolfe you make me lauch == you make me leek
@KazWolfe that's only one year minus for me
3:03 AM
@KazWolfe ಠ_ಠ goats only live til 14 years of age
26 here
@Downgoat and wolves rarely live past 12
@Serg you're an old geezer
@KazWolfe ;_; ono
3:04 AM
@Downgoat @KazWolfe but look at you two!
Yes. I'm an old man and i am gonna complain about you noisy youngsters
@Downgoat not sure if that applies to anthros ^~^
but meh
coffee anyone?
yes, I chose that on purpose
I find the best way to deal with this sorta thing is to keep calm
(and post on meta ;p )
3:05 AM
@JourneymanGeek whaddaya mean, calm?
Keep Calm and Complain on Meta™
@Serg HAHA
so can we please now turn our attention to the 280 close candidates?
@KazWolfe uhhhhh
I can do 20, tops
alright here's a question. Why is swearing tolerated but politics isn't?
(I'm guessing it isnt cuz I asked someone)
they both are
3:08 AM
as long as they don't get heated
@JamesTobin I think its worth understanding the basis of effective chat moderation
The chat must flow
So I can say "Trump is horrible" in here.
And I just did.
But as long as there is no flaming/fighting among people, nobody really cares.
3:09 AM
and can I say "Trump is good"?
and someone could say Trump is great and Hillary is also amazing
You just did, didn't you?
On AU the main topic in theory is ubuntu, so those topics take precedence.
and you can argue (well discuss)
3:09 AM
Hilliary is a terrorist
but don't let yourself feel anything
But we rarely discuss Ubuntu. So...
@JamesTobin Who's Hilliary?
If all you do is talk politics, someone might tell you "hey, could you go to the politics chat at foo?"
@KazWolfe liek srsly
3:09 AM
but that's cool too
If you're talking politics to get a reaction...
@JourneymanGeek I would dial it back to hypothetically, just to be safe
@JourneymanGeek then WELCOME!
@Zacharee1 No.
@JourneymanGeek what if all I do is talk about sleep ? is there a room for that too ?
@Serg its called a bedroom
@Serg The Nineteenth Byte
3:11 AM
as I say sooooo often these days
Do, don't say ;p
@JourneymanGeek the perfect retort
my do and say are like an elderly couple - living apart and argue 50% of the time
@JourneymanGeek Those are boring.
@KazWolfe excellent!
well, except for specific side-cases that we're not going to discuss in this sfw chat
3:13 AM
@JamesTobin Here's how I see it. Swearing is fine in moderation, because it generally doesn't start fights, unless, of course it meant to, and then it's flagged for a different reason. Politics are also fine, but they're much more likely to start something than swearing.
@KazWolfe bring a laptop. It'll help your nsfw case too
@Zacharee1 @JamesTobin There's a difference between an in context, localised F word, and say, someone coming in and swearing about his mom
(which actually happened on SU.)
I'd probably miss the former, (and we had one that was flagged a few months after it was said for some reason) and throw a very very large book at the latter.
the bloody chatmods on my favorite tech site are so...
I could swear about a lot of things . . . i just censor myself most of the time . . .
I just got my PayPal card. Time to post pictures of the front and back on Twitter to show it off
3:15 AM
@Serg i complain politely
@JourneymanGeek you complain?
@Zacharee1 I haz proof!
are we posting random images?
3:16 AM
@KazWolfe mebeh
imma post a banana . . . because random
hi penguin of doom.

@Zacharee1 or I'm a dog. A good dog. ;p
Welcome back , Mr. Osman
Fall cleaning.
Even though it's not technically the fall yet.
3:21 AM
@JourneymanGeek Woof!
Braiam's downvoting everything on Meta
what happened to braiam?
he kinda disappeared
he was banned
and now he's not
and now we're arguing on Meta
good times
3:22 AM
@Zacharee1 Braiam downvotes and critiques a lot. I don't know what's the deal with that user
braiam was a very good user at one time.
as in, an amazing resource on AU, and a very good mod candidate
and i have no idea what happened to him
@KazWolfe he shares your opinion that OEM tags should be removed. He even (most likely) downvoted Mark's very valid answer
@Serg he seems to have a very superuser attitude. From what he said below my answer on Thomas's Meta post, it seems he doesn't realize that most people don't know that OEMs don't generally make their stuff
i never said remove oem tags. i said only use it when it's required for the question
like mac
well he seems to have the same understanding of your stance as me :p
3:24 AM
so. i found a perfect waste of machine.
a ThinkPad without Linux
le gasp
because office
Yes, REMOVE the formatting, because we just LOVE it when people do that askubuntu.com/review/reopen/610598
> This one let's me connect to 5.0 GHz which would increase my WiFi speed from about 10 Mbps to around 150 Mbps.
that.. doesn't sound right
3:27 AM
it... is right.
but internet bottlenecks
no I mean, 2.4GHz is just as fast as 5.0Ghz for any consumer purpose
so unless their laptop is using 802.11b
with some exceptions, sure.
they should be able to get at least 54mb/s
and chances are they have N
so ~150-450 anyway
i'm pretty sure the 10Mbps is all the internet they're paying for
that could very well be
but what makes them think a 5GHz network will make things better?
3:29 AM
I'm finally starting to achieve Wireless G speeds now.
Y'know, the 54 Mbps they promised us in 2005.
@Zacharee1 Users Are Idiots™
™ -- there
@NathanOsman huehuehuehuhee
@KazWolfe Which Braiam doesn't seem to get
@Zacharee1 I have a feeling that if you had written "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" you would have named the child Cindy Lou Hue.
@Zacharee1 algeum br?
@NathanOsman And all the Hues in Hueville...
3:32 AM
@Zacharee1 I don't know about that. Like I said, he used to be one of the site's most valuable people.
how do I see what processes are running via terminal?
what is the command?
I usually use ps aux.
I wonder why my python script didn't start at reboot
we have two goats and two wolves in this chat.
3:40 AM
Sounds like supper for the wolves.
also not sure if downgoat and pi would like that
Cna someone smarter then me help me (it shouldn't be hard to be smarter then me)
I wrote a python script...
3:46 AM
Well by wrote I mean I pasted it into the terminal
anyways it works...
but I need it to start when the rpi turns on...
so I put an entry into crontab.
add it to rc.local
but it isn't working when I reboot the rpi
what is rc.local?
@JourneymanGeek Woof!
On-Boot config file
3:48 AM
@JourneymanGeek woof woof
@TheXed some scripts won't run non interactively
@ƎpᴉʇʎXD you're not canid
and what's the line in crontab read?
oh wait...
maybe it is working...I just wasn't waiting long enough...
just a second...rebooting now...
its working...
3:52 AM
there was once a time everyone here was 1 rep
i'm not undersatnding
oh dang it sorry
wrong place. meant that in FB messenger
hey @Seth I have a mod-only question for you about my account
how many unique users upgoated me?
if that's even retreivable data?
Cool...big brother is watching my house now muahhahaha
3:56 AM
@KazWolfe nope
@TheXed he always was.
that's a pity
@Seth if it's not retrievable, how did Shog's script work?
or do you mean public?
@Zacharee1 Shog has DB access.
@Seth actually my Raspberry Pi is....
I'm sure Byte could hack it, with his knowledge of the DB calls here :p
it was Byte right?
3:58 AM
it is monitoring the hardware addresses of the cell phones connected to my network...
@TheXed wha....?
thus telling me who is at home...or at least who left their phone at home...
It is rather ingenious if you ask me.
and kind of creepy now that I think about it.
@Zacharee1 wut

4:52 AM
Anyone here familiar with wordpress? :3
I used it once, but I would not call myself familiar yet.
What's your question though?
Besides, I believe there should be a WordPress Development Stack Exchange site ...
@ByteCommander wordpress is borked (i.e. giving me infamous "Cannot establish database connection") but wp-admin works and it works for a second when i restart machine ;_; (basically general wordpress weirdness)
Ah, I had moments like that as well...
No idea how it got solved back half a year ago though... :-/
Try to undo your last changes until it works again.
5:00 AM
hm okay i think i found solution: save posts, delete wordpress and reinstall everything
@ByteCommander I made no last changes :|
just one day it descided that today was not a good day to work
hmm :(
@SmokeDetector huh what makes Drupal attract so much spam :/
@Downgoat No idea, but flagging spam over there has already made people earn Marshal badges who don't even know what Drupal is :D
brb creating account on Drupal.SE :P
@ByteCommander LOL.
5:18 AM
Q: Problems with starting process opendkim

mostafizI've installed package OpenDKIM in a ubuntu 14.04 server following the instructions here. But the process is not being started automatically. Then I tried to run the process manually: sudo service opendkim start which results in following error: Starting OpenDKIM: opendkim: /etc/opendkim.conf...

@NathanOsman No joke:
I guess there are even more like that.
after a long nap
hey there @
The police has arrived
5:31 AM
When I see things like this, I kinda just give up on life

@DavidCole-GrammarPolice Now I'm depressed XD
I'm police of these kinds of questions and I'm too lazy to edit all those damn mistakes :(
God damn
this guy's english
Am I allowed to get mad at someone for not speaking English well :3
5:46 AM
@DavidCole-GrammarPolice elegant looking question
fixing now :P
Fixed, just waiting for approval <3
@DavidCole-GrammarPolice why do a bad sector check
if you're smart enough to know what that does, you should know that it's wholly unnecessary in this case
(well not you, the OP)
I have no clue what that does
I just fix grammar ;-;
5:55 AM
can someone accept that edit?
needs one more vote
Sometimes these question start to feel like a broken record. (not to be racist) but some Indian guy with 1 rep says "Kindly help me," and I have some faith that they speak English well, but then the rest of the question is a tunnel into the deep depths of grammatical hell
@DavidCole-GrammarPolice protip: saying "i'm not being racist" makes everyone think you are.
just a weird human thing
@DavidCole-GrammarPolice do the needful and either edit it or close it.
Well thats the thing
(I'm indian. ;p)
well ethnically
5:59 AM
usually it takes about 10-20 minutes to try to find out what they're trying to say, then another 15-20 to edit it XD
