You have connection problems
@lyxal Hi
 
thank god it didn’t load
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani Pip, 41 bytes
 
@emanresuA it's kinda laggy as frick, but somehow I got it to work
 
the moment you load in, whole chat lagged
 
I'll take a picture for y'all
 
12:03 AM
My hobby: Making "In [place], it's illegal to do [random thing]" trivia, but with things that are illegal for really obvious reasons
"Did you know that in Iowa, it's illegal to stab someone?"
"Fun fact: In Britain, stealing cars is a crime"
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani Technically, no, but I definitely believed that already without having specific evidence for it.
 
Did you know that in TNB it's illegal to eat other users?
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani In Iceland, it's illegal to murder Americans
Also, if you can believe it, Danish people
 
In Nebraska, it's illegal to stab a postal carrier between 8 am and 5 pm on weekdays.
 
Best way to make something suspicious: be overly specific
Yes, I am typing this message on a regular windows laptop that hasn't ever been used to hack the CIA
 
12:06 AM
Let me try.
 
Canadian Radio Stations Must Play Canadian Artists
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Huh, it's surprising that Danish people have so many rights in Iceland. I live in Missouri, and I've eaten a Danish before.

I'm typing this from a Lenovo P52 thinkpad.
 
@WheatWizard ... Hey, me too 0_0
 
@DLosc Danish people don't have rights if they're made of cheese or jam
 
12:08 AM
The keyboard emoji section even has a bunch of ascii faces lol
 
I want one of these /s
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Related
 
the lighting was horrible for the photos, but it seems fitting for a windows phone
 
is there OwO
 
@Niko not that I recall
 
12:09 AM
:(
 
@DLosc I love Purim Torah :P
@Niko OwO, where's this?
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Me too. That's the first one I ever ran across. ^_^
 
@Niko O.O and (~.^) would be the closest things
 
-_-;;
 
:*)
 
12:11 AM
Θ_Θ
 
:^)
 
Man what tf was Microsoft on to include an emoji section for just text faces?
 
.-. (it’s upside down if you are curious)
 
Also, i seem to make a lot of spelling mistakes when trying to type on the windows phone
 
People say binging the LOTR movies or Bond or Harry Potter is hard, but have they ever binged all of Star Trek. It's taking me weeks :/
 
12:14 AM
@lyxal You don't like it?
Also why do you have a Windows Phone?
 
@user no, it just seems like something wack for their time
@user it was my first phone lol
and my second for that matter
I have a nokia lumia 520 and a microsoft lumia 640
running windows phone 7 and windows phone 8 respectively
 
windows phone can be used to sneak into windowphone se
 
How do you still have your first phone?
 
Nokia Lumias aren't made of the same indestructible stuff tho
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing I keep it as a symbolic thing now
 
12:15 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing I ran the numbers on Avatar: The Last Airbender once, and I think you could do it in three ~10 hour days
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Why wouldn't he have it?
 
also, I just never got rid of it
 
@DLosc I managed to do all of Avatar and Korra in 10 days :P
 
I still have my previous (first) phone, a cheap $50 Blu because no one's going to buy it
 
@user I don't have my previous phone, which was my 6th
 
12:16 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing Noice
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing ...that's a lot of phones
 
I tended to watch 2-4 episodes at a time.
 
@user I've had a total of 7 phones, I'm 19, and got my first phone ~10, so less than 1/year
 
The trick to stop yourself from binging on a show is to watch really bad shows :P
 
@DLosc I managed to watch all of Book 2 of ATLA in one night
 
12:17 AM
I think my current phone might be my fourth... not really sure. I don't get that invested in them.
 
(more or less)
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing What do you do to these phones to wear them out so much lol
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani What happened?
 
@user Lose the charger
 
12:18 AM
lmao
 
Wait nvm
 
In a perfect world it'd be cheaper to buy a charger and other parts separately than to buy an entirely new phone
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing just steal the charger of another phone lol
 
@user Or, you can save yourself even more time and not watch really bad shows :P
 
I had 2 nokias, then a flip phone, then a "slide up" phone. Then I got an iPhone 3, then an iPhone 6 and I currently have an iPhone 8
 
12:19 AM
@lyxal But then they'll steal someone else's charger and that someone else will steal another charger and eventually caird's charger will be stolen
 
@lyxal I had the only phone with that type of charger :P
 
@DLosc I mean I need something to do while eating dinner
Food is boring, laughing at ridiculously bad TV shows is less boring
 
I have my mum's old iphone SE
 
@user In my credit, I went through the first 4 phones in <2 years, then each of my iPhones has lasted me ~2 years each
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Should've kept it and sold it as a collectible in a few decades :P
 
12:20 AM
@user only phone with that charger in my house :P
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Tsk tsk, I've had my iPhone SE for ~4 years and it's still good (admittedly, I replaced the Blu after only a couple months, but it had issues that I didn't cause)
 
Think I got my current phone in Dec 2019
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Steal your neighbor's charger
Even better, steal your neighbor's phone, then steal your neighbor's finger
 
@user The screen started lifting off my previous phone :P
 
As I said, steal your neighbor's phone
 
12:22 AM
It didn't help that I left it out in California summer sun for ~6 hours by mistake, and it heated up so much it had the "Phone too hot" error :P
 
I find it hard to believe that phones I thought were so cool not too long ago look kinda old now
 
@user Flip phones were amazing, and deserve to come back
 
Do you consider folding phones to be a part of that?
 
12:23 AM
I sort consider them to be higher tech flip phones
 
T-Mobile gave my family 3 free phones a few years back and at the time, the screens looked really nice, but now they look blurry and just off compared to my iPhone
 
Can you do "the flip" with folding phones? No
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing I have a flip phone
 
The only cool part about them seems to be the flipping and the fact that they're cheap, but other than that they're probably crap
 
@DLosc Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with being old ;)
 
12:25 AM
I hate how my laptop's speakers are on the bottom of it, so the sound's all muffled if you try to do stuff while you're listening to music
 
@DLosc It's not amazing, tho. I keep wishing I could get into the OS code and fix some of the bugs. :(
 
@DLosc But what do you do when you want to watch cat videos?! :P
 
@user Laptop
 
Feb 6 '18 at 16:50, by caird coinheringaahing
Is blink-182 another old person thing?
 
What do you do when you don't have your laptop?
 
12:26 AM
I've got a laptop with me basically 24/7, so I have no idea why I even have a somewhat modern phone
 
Does your laptop have cellular data or whatever it's called?
 
I don't even have a hotspot on it because my parents are too cheap, so half its advantages are gone
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani My laptop's battery is so bad, I basically have tokeep it plugged in, or it dies in a couple of hours
 
@user Look at nature. Talk to people. Keep my eyes on the road. Sleep. (If I'm not doing one of those things, I generally have a laptop available. :P)
 
Booooooring :P
 
12:27 AM
@user No, that's half the reason I own a phone, for the hotspot. Which I can't use because AT&T and my parents collectively suck
 
@DLosc Try doing the last two at the same time, the horns honking are a really good white noise machine
 
@cairdcoinheringaahing Imagine having a laptop with a battery so good it can actually hold any charge at all
 
@DLosc Try doing all of those at the same time, for that matter
 
I've had to (have to) work with a laptop that tells you on startup there's no battery and you need to keep it charging constantly. Pull the plug and it immediately dies
> Keep my eyes on the road
> Sleep
 
what
 
12:28 AM
@DLosc SE actually told me that it undid some serial voting yesterday; I'd never seen that before
 
> Try
 
Do or do not do, there is no true
 
@user If you think talking to people is boring, I have a site where I think you'd really get along with the users: codegolf.stackexchange.com

@emanresuA The laptop's name is Glorious Leader iirc
 
12:30 AM
@DLosc unless you have custom code, default stdio is only line buffered for a tty, so when you write to a file nothing gets written until you hit stdio's buffer size. and if your process gets interrupted before then, nothing gets written
 
Even flushing doesn't help with that?
 
@DLosc Accurate lol
 
@Neil Huh, okay. So if I let it run till there was more output, maybe it would have worked?
 
I just realized I use my phone to browse the web, check my email, set alarms and timers, take and view photos, etc., but not actually to call people
Whenever I get a call from a number not saved in my contacts (which is every call I get), I just block the number
 
12:34 AM
@DLosc well, you might have had some of the output, yes
 
And I only occasionally call my parents to come pick me up or something
 
I use mine as an alarm clock and uh...well I would text people but I don't know anyone...so uh...sometimes I take pictures, but my phone's never near enough when I need it...and uh...why do I have a $500 phone again...
 
@user I think I use my phone to call someone around once a month
 
@emanresuA Saying it's a convex polygon at the start may help?
 
the other alternative is to use script -c to capture the output of a command, this runs the command in its own TTY thus fooling it into using line buffering
 
12:35 AM
Alarm, texts/chats (Snapchat, Whatsapp, etc.), browsing internet is mainly what I use my phone for
 
Riding the bus to school and back is the only time I ever don't have a laptop and wifi, except under rare circumstances
 
It isn't

I kinda dislike doing anything involving typing on my phone because it's way too small for my fat fingers
@emanresuA Whoops, didn't see that one
 
My screen time from last week :P
 
I turned off screen time because I was starting to feel guilty about it lol
 
12:38 AM
> Clock
> 1h 13m
 
Any bets on how long I spent on "chat.stackexchange.com"? :P
@emanresuA My alarms
 
47m
@cairdcoinheringaahing Oh
 
Does it also count snoozing? Is that why the number is so high?
 
I use my phone for alarms, checking the time/date, texting, and sometimes calling. Occasionally I'll take a picture, even though the camera is garbage compared to any smartphone camera.
 
@emanresuA Ah, didn't realise you could see that :P
 
12:39 AM
> 00:36
 
that's early for caird
 
Wait, do people actually use the snooze button on stuff?
 
@user I fall asleep after my alarm goes off, with the clock app open
@user See you in 3 hours :P
 
lol
 
My next and last exam is on Thursday, I don;t care what time I sleep tonight :P
 
12:40 AM
@taRadvylfsriksushilani Why are you so surprised by this? Sleep-deprived people who don't want to get out of bed exist (source: am one of these people)
 
I mean, when I'm asleep, my only goal is to stay asleep and the alarm clock is the enemy of that. It's not until I'm at least 50% awake that I can remember that I actually need to be awake. Pressing the snooze button goes against that terminal goal of staying asleep, so I never do that.
 
Imagine having school in Januaray
 
@emanresuA I don't
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani I just turn off the alarm and fall back asleep
 
I just have exams :P
 
12:41 AM
@taRadvylfsriksushilani Which is a big problem, and the reason I have more than ten alarms set in my room at any given time
 
@taRadvylfsriksushilani Get on my level. I have an alarm every 5 minutes from 7:00am to 9:00am

Q: Sides of a polygon

I solved this problem by putting my phone across the room. Now I have to be somewhat conscious by the time I've walked over to it, so I can trust myself to not snooze the alarm and go back to bed
 
I use my phone for phone calls and occasionally texts, because those are the only things it does
 
You can definitely separate the users of TNB agewise by asking "What can your phone do?" :P
 
12:43 AM
CMQ: What can your phone do?
 
or if you mean my landline, then I use it for phone calls
 
@Neil oh wow, a landline
 
Definitely a boomer here :P
 
I haven't seen one of those outside my grandma's house
 
comes free with the broadband, so...
 
12:44 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing My family has one but it doesn't work
 
I think that technically my parents have a landline somewhere in the house, but I haven't seen it in years
 
Uh, nothing?
 
@emanresuA cmon I've been working on this for literally half a year
 
Then you've probably got a private repo

1:47 AM
@OldSandboxPosts Why has it titled it "the list"?
 
That's the only <h1> in there
 
Yeah, I think ^ is why. IIRc, OSP looks for the first <h1> tag, and if not there, it looks for the first <h2> tag
Could probably do with some refinement tbh
Supporting <h3> and <h4>, along with taking the first <h_> tag if it's the first line would be good
 
Just do a bunch of machine learning so that it will highlight random sections without us ever being able to figure out why.

ok i'm not exactly known for my appreciation of javascript but i actually quite like the ability to do ({a: b, c: d}) => b + d
it's lowkey cursed but i like it
 
5:37 AM
didn't know js had pattern matching that complex
 
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Scala allows "$a plus $b"
or similr
 
js deconstruction assignment or whatever it's called is pretty cool
like python lets you do [a, [b, c]] = (1, (2, 3))
but i didn't realize until recently that JS can do that in the func arguments itself

Q: Numbers divisible by the sum and product of their digits

FatalizeTake a positive integer X. This number is part of the sequence we are interested in if the sum of all digits of X is a divisor of X, and if the product of all digits of X is a divisor of X. For example, 135 is such a number because 1 + 3 + 5 = 9 which divides 135 = 9 * 15 and 1 * 3 * 5 = 15 which...

A: List of bounties with no deadline

Adám50 – 500 rep for an APL answer I will reward 50 rep if all of the following conditions are met: The answer is in Dyalog APL Classic/Unicode/Extended/Prime, APL2, APL+, APLSE, GNU/APL, Sharp APL, sAPL, SAX, NARS, APLX, A+, dzaima/APL, ngn/APL, APL\iv, Watcom APL, or APL\360. Feel free to suggest ...

 
8:28 AM
I will make an 1+-advertising bounty when I have 25818 rep
 
I feel like that bounty should have a disclaimer at the top saying "This bounty was posted by a person whose job is to promote APL"
 
@pxeger Done.
 
Who will invest my Oneplus Limited Corporations?
Oh! Now I knew how Razetime got so much rep.
 
and Bubbler
 
yes, and Bubbler
but Bubbler would get as much rep with his rudeness even wihhout apl
 
8:35 AM
22% of Bubbler's rep came from Adám
15% for Razetime
 
I know how to boost rep: offer a negative rep for python answers
 
I wonder if I'm the one on the SE network that has given away the highest amount of rep.
 
Almost certainly not
Here, maybe
 
Why do you think so?
 
8:38 AM
You've given away 127% of your rep in bounties
 
That doesn't sound right. 56%.
 
i think pxeger means relative to your current rep
 
I mean 127% of your actual current rep
yeah
 
so like, bountied / current not bountied / (bountied + current)
 
not out of rep earnt
 
8:59 AM
@Adám Simply because of the amount of rep people on SO have
 
OK, then that's a challenge: Find a SE user that has given away more rep than me!
 
… on mobile? No thanks. There’s probably an SEDE query somewhere
 
@Adám nervously looks at someone from another universe
 
@lyxal that was my sock
But good job making the internet more wholesome
 
@Adám If you'd given your bounties on StackOverflow instead, you'd be the 16th most prolific bounty awarder
Naman has given a ridiculous amount of rep
 
9:09 AM
Wow.
 
Well, arguably, Community is the absolute most generous user, but that doesn't count
(How can Community award a bounty anyway? Or does it just own deleted users' bounties?)
 
Now I want to know how much rep is in circulation.
(Obviously, more is created all the time.)
 
If a bount expires it gets half awarded to the top answer
@Adám Including or not including association bonus?
 
Either way.
AssBons is probably negligible in the grand scheme of things.
 
Networkwide, probably not
There are 86k users with <200 rep here
Ok wtf I got rate limited
