@Geobits Hah. Closed-captioning glasses are a lot more hassle.
 
I can imagine. Never had to deal with those.
 
Ever seen one, though?
 
I don't think so.
 
Oh, yea that doesn't look like fun.
 
12:02 AM
Be glad you just get "sunglasses". :P
Although with these closed-caption glasses, all that's needed for 3D is a little plastic thing that snaps on the front. It's pretty cool.
That guy has one.
There are actually two plastic sheets along with the white connector in the middle.
 
random music I'm listening to: youtube.com/watch?v=urrELlsnqqc
I don't really like 3D movies. The ones I've seen felt too gimmicky.
 
12:34 AM
^^
CinemaSins sinned Big Hero 6's flying scene for being specifically made to entertain viewers of the 3D version of the movie
3D is honestly not worth it

Yeaaah, no.
I love how everything is off-topic in this chat. XD

> abandon all work, ye who enter here
 
@VTCAKAVSMoACE There's about as much off-topic conversation (proportionally) in the Christianity main chat.
 
I'm not surprised about that, though. Christianity is all about community, so, I could see that happening.

12:52 AM
Eventually this chat becomes so off-topic that it'll be on-topic again.
 
Thanks for the link, btw.
 
You're welcome for the link, btw.
 
@VTCAKAVSMoACE Chat rooms in general are community-focused, eh? :P
 
Not... really what I meant, but sure. XD
@minxomat Whaddya think of my answer? ;D
 
@VTCAKAVSMoACE I didn't really rea your answer since AppleScript would probably lead to me throwing up.
 
12:58 AM
> rea
 
Ah, I see - it started as a joke, but then it was the only viable answer for a long time.
So... I treated it like a real submission.
 
@AlexA. See? I'm getting sick already.
 
Why, is "rea" supposed to be like diarrhea?

There, I gave you the d.

I am so proud. I taught myself to GitHub :D :D :D :D
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Nice job! Welcome to 2013!
4
 
It's a whole lot better than SorceForge.
 
@PhiNotPi Not that difficult, since sourceforge is shit.
 
I think I moved from the 90s to the early 2000s in terms of style.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Ooh, they do indeed.
@minxomat Yes. I'm still amazed that aditsu uses SourceForge for CJam.
 
@AlexA. Thanks ^_^
 
1:07 AM
Don't tell him what? That SourceForge sucks?
 
Why does nobody want to do this question?
 
@AlexA. Yeah, probably because you literally can not delete projects on sourceforge.
 
@VTCAKAVSMoACE Because parsing is hard
 
@minxomat Is that real life?
 
1:08 AM
Yes. @AlexA. I've ranted about this on some forum somewhere.
 
So it's not just fantasy.
 
@AlexA. Here's a dump of my rant.
 
@PhiNotPi That's some bullshit.
@minxomat Nice.
 
1:15 AM
I like github (and git in general), but thay have some f*cked up community guidelines.
 
It's too bad I don't work at GitHub so I can delete code that uses tabs.
glares at @CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ
 
@Alex XD
@AlexA. I'm confused - enlighten me?
 
You used tabs for indentation in the Simplex implementation.
 
>:(
 
1:26 AM
>:7
self-taught FTW
I'm literally self-taught in everything I'm good at.
EXCEPT, apparently, when it comes to the use of tabulators.
 
Well clearly you didn't teach yourself not to use tabs. :P
 
Oh well. It's a large button.
 
Haha do you push every large button you see?
 
1:35 AM
report for spam
btw there's a sandbox channel, just saying :)
 
@Sp3000 Sandbox channel...?
 
Channel. Chat. Something.
 
I didn't know about that!
 
[tag:[tag:[tag:[tag]]]]
nope :(
 
didn't mean to spam
I just wanted to post a big button for conor to click :P
 
1:42 AM
@DankMemes It just... happened. :P
 
(Don't worry, if I say "report for spam", chances are I was too lazy to do anything :P)
 
are commands sandbox-specific?
>>listcommands
guess so
 
What commands do you mean?
 
It's a chatbot.
 
@Doorknob is a chatbot.
 
(I was about to start up my chatbot in this room, but then I realized SEChatty broke when new login was released and I've still been too lazy to fix it)
 
@flawr Did you fix the JSFiddle library for SAF/BF?
 
I don't really understand the whole chatbot fad. Nobody ever uses them for anything worthwhile.
 
Do you understand why PPCG exists, then? ;)

@Doorknob How does go to end of lin in van?
 
1:49 AM
... in vim?
$
 
That inserts dollars
Cash monay
 
of course it does in insert mode
 
So to go to the end of a line I have to do esc,$,a?
 
no, $a is equivalent to A
(and ^i is equivalent to I)
 
What's A?
 
1:51 AM
Append to end of line
(go to EOL, enter insert mode)
 
Oh, gotcha
So I could do A instead of $a?
 
yes
they do the exact same thing
 
Naiss

Q: Java Program with Integers and Division

Austin ZellI need help on writing a program that asks to enter an integer between 1 and 50. It then will want me to make it so it will divide the entered number UP TO the number entered. Example being: 50, it will divide it all the way to 50, so the answers to the first three numbers are: 50, 25, 16.6667, (...

can i haz mods plz
 
2:13 AM
@Doorknob is ninja mod
 
nope, that's this guy
 
Oh yeah, I voted for that guy in the SO mod election!

I assume that the SO mods are too busy to do anything else, but we should somehow convince Martijn to make a PPCG account.

Just memoize them, then
 
compose + ? + ? = ¿
compose + ' + o = ó
compose + ' + a = á
 
What is compose?
 
A Compose key, also called Multi key, is a part of the computer keyboard that is—or behaves like—a kind of special dead key. Thus, unlike a modifier key, which must be held down, the Compose key can be released before the following key stroke. The effect of the Compose key is to convert to a dead key every specified key that is pressed after it. The next (or even a later) keypress triggers the insertion of an alternate character, typically a precomposed character or a symbol. == Key details == === On the keyboard === Being a dead key, the Compose key only needs one key position. This is...
 
Don't have it.
 
You can type stuff like ‽ or ♯ or ° or ² or ə or ¶ or ♩ or ...

Therefore, I propose that we find such a factor to quantify questions. I propose also that this factor be called QF, or...

soy boss

@Doorknob I know. I took 4 years of Spanish. It was a bad pun.
 
Noto is a font family designed to cover all the scripts encoded in the Unicode standard. It is designed with the goal of achieving visual harmony (e.g., compatible heights and stroke thicknesses) across multiple languages/scripts. Like Open Sans, it is derived from Droid fonts. Commissioned by Google, the font is licensed under the Apache license. == Unicode coverage == The font is still under development with plans of supporting all of Unicode 6.2 gradually. As of March 2015, 98 fonts were available for download, separated into script areas. Noto's matching symbols font, Noto Symbols, includes...
 
Err. @DankMemes , I just put you in a sandbox question without even realizing. That okay?
 
@mbomb007 yay puns \o/
 
I've forgotten lots of the Spanish though. I don't have any reason to use it.
Plus, if I wanted to learn a language fluently, it'd be Japanese or German or Swedish.

I think I was taught some spanish in like elementary school but I've forgotten all of it
 
2:26 AM
Why Swedish? :D
 
All languages are useless.
 
@VTCAKAVSMoACE Because Basshunter.
And Pewdiepie
 
@AlexA. but....how could I type this message without a language?
 
@DankMemes Nonverbal communication.
Just type ?

How do you spell the kolmo... something complexity?
 
But it's not possible to express every idea nonverbally over this chat

Thanks. Always get that wrong.
 
well unless you're willing to take like a bunch of pictures of yourself making faces or something

how about?

@Maltysen Is that Richard Gere?
 
2:35 AM
meh could be better but OK
 
pretty sure that's Kolmogorov...

But it's Richard Gere playing him, right?
 
the complexity one I feel like doesn't entirely get the message across
 
2:37 AM
Question: is there a tag for a code that must download something?
 
If I had to guess what it was I wouldn't guess complexity first
code that must download something?
 
Yeah, so, part of the code must grab something from the internet.
 
what's your challenge? I would say provide said thing as a file and let entries assume that it exists, or let entries assume it will be given as input but it depends on the challenge
 
Heh. Basically, you must return a meme when specified the name, or a random one if there is no input.
 
lol
hmm
really it's not much of a challenge if you provide everything online
just download(memeURLs[inputmeme || random()])
 
2:43 AM
Hmm. Well, I started out with ASCII-art challenge of this, but thought it would be too difficult.
 
if you make it
ninjad
do ascii art
 
Alrighty.
 
score based on number of memes + code length
like length - memes * 100 or something
depending on how high res the ascii art is
probably more than 100
 
Yeah. Something like that. :P Alright. How would I rate resolution?

It may be of interest to note that the SE API does not seem to expose the number of edits on a post. — Alex A. ♦ 2 mins ago
So I have no idea how to get that number
 
@AlexA. Can you get to the edit history?
 
Hm.
I'll check the docs.
 
Then you could see how many "blocks" there are.
Which would correspond to edits.
 
not always
bounties, notices, locks, Twitter bot posts, etc.
