Hello,
I've seen quite a few upvote on answers I didn't even remember provide long time ago, I feel like someone is bumbing my rep up virtually.
 
 
2 hours later…
11:05 AM
@Kiwy congratulations! Maybe one of those ~1.6m people you've reached :)
 
@JeffSchaller well it's strange I usually get some rep from 2 main questions I answered long ago. And for now a couple of week I feel like someone is just upvoting random answer from me. OKay I get rep but it's strange
 
@Kiwy Maybe it's a new user trying to get a badge for voting, or someone feeling randomly generous. If it's "bad" enough, the system will reverse it. For now, enjoy the fact that they're upvotes and not downvotes :)
 
true true...
Champagne for everyone !
I'm getting random upvotes
 
🍾 🥂
 
I couldn't find a worst one
 
11:29 AM
@JeffSchaller Is that Unicode?
 
@FaheemMitha it's emoji which are part of Unicode nowaday
 
@Kiwy Oh
 
@Kiwy I see. Thank you.
 
You could pretty much talk only with all those symbols
🍻
I personnaly use 🔥 in my prompt to explicitly show me that I'm logged as root :D
 
11:59 AM
Hi all, (coming from SO) i am new to this community and just wanted to say thank you for having such a welcoming community it's great, to be honest i am almost shocked how low quality question don't get down votes lol
look like programmers tend to have social lack and linux pple to be more wise (if you don't ask them about kali hahahah :p)
 
12:15 PM
this makes me becoming addictive to this site... lol
 
@intika Glad you like the site community. have a very nice day :-)
though I'm talking only for me and I'm not representative of the community and shall not talk for it.
 
@Kiwy yes but you are active thus being part of it :)
 
@Kiwy that ... is one of the strangest things I've seen
@intika thank you, and welcome!
 
@intika to be fair, I'm using the site as a huge Linux wiki.
It wouldn't be fair to not help a bit.
@JeffSchaller isn't Internet amazing ? I'm sure you never allow yourself to simply think of a woman in bikini with a strom trooper helmet and a bottle of Champagne showering you
 
@Kiwy true all around!
 
12:27 PM
@JeffSchaller You're so predictable :D
 
@Kiwy I'm a simple man!
 
@Kiwy hahahaha....
@JeffSchaller thanks :)
i just hope that low quality questions will not grow too much in number (in a perspective of someone that is trying to answer it could be tiring)... but at the end of the day i think that the success of all SE sites are because of the quality questions, after all low q. question have low visits.
 
@intika it takes both, right? A great question with no Answers isn't helping anyone; asking good questions is hard (I've only managed 3, and one of those was by accident)
 
@intika Low quality questions are pruned quite effectively here. But remember that we are a fraction of the size of SO, so the voting is also proportional. A question with -2 here would likely have a -10 or whatever on SO and yet the same proportion of users will have voted on it.
 
@JeffSchaller yes true but i am not talking about famous question with a lot of up-votes when i am referring to quality, but just question that are well formatted not too broad and makes sens and thus answerable.
 
12:34 PM
@intika that is, indeed the goal -- answerable questions
 
@terdon yes true i tough of that as well
 
But yes, we're also nicer. Absolutely! :P
 
i remember back in the day when you searched some technical info in the internet without SE, Wikipedia etc. was like going to war.
@terdon hahaha :)
 
Yeah, those were not good times.
Having to click through 15 pages of a forum post to find the one answer that might actually be useful.
 
we were exited as hell when after many hours we found a solution
 
12:39 PM
@terdon or you find the ONE EXACT match on usenet and it's just the person with the problem -- with no replies
 
even id Google is a bit criticized it changed the game completely
 
I somehow never got into usenet. I think I am just too young for it. I think I first got online in 1996, but didn't go full geek or Linux until '98 or '99.
 
usenet is an other level lol
remind me of my uncle in the 80 (who introduce me to computers)
one day he was going crazy after his computer he tool the screen and was willing to through it over the window it was funny to see her wife asking him to calm down, and looking at his face expressing some technical frustration that she could not understand
 
However I'm not sure our great leader, the almighty Gilles is human which always bother me...
I'm fearing a T1000 invasion and I do not want to have anything to do with that :D
 
@Kiwi :D watch your back we are not far away from that time
i this in the next 30~50 years major evolution will occur like never before
 
12:55 PM
/ban @intika
/kick @intika
/destroy @intika
I was sure that day would come....
How can I do
 
hahaha, it's hard to imagine a T1000 answering questions on SE
 
@Kiwy He won't admit it...
Oct 15 '14 at 12:08, by Gilles
@terdon whether I'm a bot or a top is none of your business
 
@terdon I know and that is very bothering.... 😠
 
He claims he's something completely different:
 
That's exactly what a T-1000 would want you to believe !
 
1:13 PM
@Kiwy i though you were joking, did not knew the whole story loool it's amazing ! hahahaha

hello @Jesse_b
 
=)
 
I'm sure you've been linked one way or another to this github.com/TheMozg/awk-raycaster
you and Kusa
 
@Jesse_b awk command not found! i am on windows :p
Hello
 
1:25 PM
@Kiwy I have not, looks cool
@intika Wat it do
 
@Jesse_b I say scary, though sometime scary and cool can be intricate
 
@Kiwy what city are you from ?
 
someone asked something containing the keyword ed
@intika might be living in Lyon
 
cool i have cousin there, nice city, i might be in Liege (BE) lol
 
@intika Ho never been there though I lived in Brussels for 6 months...
I 💝 Belgium
 
1:36 PM
@Kiwy Is that a slice of pizza wearing a bikini?
 
:D cool it's much more welcoming than Brussels (i am often there too)
 
@Jesse_b No, more like a heart with a ribbon
however this is a peperonni pizza on a bikini:

i love pizzas :D
 
yeah us human race have the improbable super power of conceiving and making product no one ever ask for nor need ...
hurray for human race
 
are you talking about apple ? hahahah :p
 
1:41 PM
or maybe just about the bikinizza
 
do they come with the model ? :p
 
I think you can ask an escort services to have a woman wearing a bikinizza, but you most likely won't find a lingerie shop selling you the models...
 
:D
@Kiwy have you ever been to nuitduhack in paris or FOSDEM in Brussels ?
 
1:58 PM
never
 
@Kusalananda: You still use a mac?
 
2:17 PM
@Jesse_b I use an iMac and a MacBook Air, mostly for web browsing, and as terminals to my OpenBSD system.
 
@Kusalananda Have you ever seen the /usr/share/calendar/calendar.history file?
I made a little "today in history" motd for my bash_profile: awk -v td="$(date '+%m/%d')" '$1 == td' /usr/share/calendar/calendar.history
 
I have, and it's also available at the same path on OpenBSD (and presumably on other BSD systems too), although updated.
You should be able to use it with the calendar utility, if Linux has it.
$ calendar -f /usr/share/calendar/calendar.history

@Kusalananda Would you say that Yeti doesn't exist ? Because some guy I know really thinks they are prisoners from alien and to be precise from the ancient astronaut civilization
 
2:27 PM
@Kiwy I believe that some people believe they do really exist. That's what I would say.
 
That guy is amazing !
 
Yeti's are people too
 
 
1 hour later…
3:45 PM
My day is complete, my ****** is fed // I answered a question // I answered with ed!
The grawlixes above are for Faheem
 
@JeffSchaller That's so sweet, adding the link.
Note to self: when filling in a PDF form, avoid doing so in red. Because it's annoying.
Yikes, Code Golf.
 
4:14 PM
I could go for some Black Forest gateau right now.
Though generally I eat healthy.
 
4:35 PM
Dammit, another show I sort of enjoyed watching got cancelled.
 
@FaheemMitha gilligan's island?
 
@Jesse_b Whiskey Cavalier. On Amazon Prime Video.I believe it was broadcast on ABC, but I didn't see it there. For one thing, I don't live in North America.
 
@JeffSchaller The length of the program depends on the language used. I wonder if one could make a short C answer? Probably not.
 
It had a really-well worn plot. But it was somewhat entertaining, unlike a lot of stuff on TV these days.
But I hear cool people don't watch TV any more.
A lot of my guests tell me they don't even own TV sets. They seem quite proud of it.
Though not owning a TV doesn't mean much these days. You can watch TV on not-a-TV.
 
Yeah I don't have cable anymore but I watch a decent amount of tv on netflix/amazon/youtube
 
4:46 PM
@Jesse_b Streaming is better value than cable. Plus you have more control what you watch.
@Jesse_b BTW, do you know how to do aluminium welding?
 
@FaheemMitha I have never done it but I know the concept of it
 
@Jesse_b Ok. Something called TIG, I believe.
 
I have a stick welder which cannot really weld aluminum but it is theoretically possible with a DC stick welder and the right stick electrodes. I have seen very experienced welders try and fail though
You can do it with MIG (requires special wire and ideally a specialized gas mixture) or TIG (again need specialized wire and gas)
 
@Jesse_b Try and fail to do what? Weld aluminium?
 
@FaheemMitha Yes weld aluminum with a stick welder
 
4:49 PM
@Jesse_b Oh. But why try without specialised equipment?
 
@FaheemMitha Well they had the correct electrode and DC- (I think it's DC- but maybe +) but still it didn't turn out well
 
@Jesse_b I meant the TIG thing. Or something similar. I'm not familiar with the technicalities, obviously.
Is welding aluminium intrinsically difficult?
 
It is certainly more difficult than welding steel or even iron, but experienced welders usually have no issue with it
TIG welding is one of the more difficult forms of welding though but is also the most versatile. The machines are the most expensive though
 
@Jesse_b How expensive?
And what are maintenance costs like?
 
@FaheemMitha I would be surprised if you could find a good quality entry level one for under $1000 USD
A high quality one is probably $5000-10000
 
4:54 PM
@Jesse_b Wow. That's a lot of money.
Can you make good money with one of those?
 
Yeah welders are probably one of the highest paid professions right now
 
@Jesse_b Hmm.
 
pipeline welders make like $180/hour
 
It seems very hard to find people here to do aluminium welding. It's annoying.
Actually, because it's India, they'll tell you it's impossible. Morons.
@Jesse_b Wow, nice money.
 
Pipeline welding is one of the top tier welding positions though, it's a very critical application that is subject to extremely high standards. The welds are usually xrayed to check their integrity and there is literally zero tolerance for any error
 
4:58 PM
@Jesse_b So a high skill job.
Any idea what the lifetime of a welding machine is?
 
@FaheemMitha A quality machine will generally last longer than the welder breathing in welding fumes
 
@Jesse_b Now that's a cheery thought. How about masks?
 
@FaheemMitha For the fumes or the light?
 
@Jesse_b Either. Both.
 
@FaheemMitha Well you can get a decent 3m respirator that will protect you against most fumes for around $30USD, and generally any cheap welding mask (again around $30) will protect your eyes just as good as any other
The most important thing is that you don't get a cheap auto-tinting mask
 
5:06 PM
@Jesse_b Ok.
Do you own such things?
 
@FaheemMitha I do, I have an entry level lincoln mask that is not auto-tinting
So I have to manually lower the mask before I weld and it's very difficult to see what you are doing until the arc starts. Auto-tinting masks are very nice but the cheap ones do not tint fast enough and will damage your eyes
A good one will cost around $300 or more
 
@Jesse_b Probably a reasonable investment if one does enough welding.
 
@FaheemMitha Yeah but not very necessary for a hobby welder
 
@JeffSchaller 25 bytes:
 
5:14 PM
my welding machine was only about $300 but it only does AC stick welding, it's a pretty entry level machine

Bonus, If the input is just a name, it will answer in the correct tone :-)
GNU ed will print a ? at the end, but BSD ed does not.

kk@eeyore ~ $ ed -s file <<END_ED

Hi Arthur, I'm Ed!
With just Arthur it would say Arthur, I'm Ed!.
 
@Kusalananda: but what if your name was Ed?
@FaheemMitha: for someone not trying to get into a maker hobby you ask a lot of questions about making things :)
 
5:31 PM
@Kusalananda I considered a global s/// but wasn't sure if I could assume that every line of the file/input was one that should be transformed
 
@JeffSchaller The challenge reads "take a string".
 
@Kusalananda true!
ed is still a square peg in a round hole there, as the input is presumed stdin or to a function -- not a file :(
 
︻╦╤─ This is a stick up. Give me all your strings!
 
@Jesse_b making a harp? (stick(s) + strings)
 
@Jesse_b Sorry, I'm all out of strings. Jeff did a global replace. Now all I've got are greetings.
... from some guy called Ed.
 
5:35 PM
Ed the Dad-joker; he'd have to have a child ... named Jed? (Ed Junior)
 
@Jesse_b I'd like to get some metalwork done. But by me, of course.
Also, I always ask a lot of questions.
 
Ah, the internet. So many opportunities for time-wasting.
I like aluminium. I wish it was more used here. Everyone here seems to have a thing about MS, for some reason.
 
Without the internet, we'd all waste our time on books and sticks.
 
@Kusalananda Sticks?
You mean lacrosse?
 
5:41 PM
@FaheemMitha MS?
 
Part a reference to @Jesse_b's recent message, and part a reference to "when I was a kid, all we had to play with was pine cones and sticks!"
 
@Jesse_b Mild Steel, I think. That's what they call it here.
 
@FaheemMitha ah yeah
 
@Kusalananda Ah.
 
Mild?
 
5:42 PM
@Kusalananda Yes, Mild. As opposed to Bitter.
 
I believe it has to do with the carbon content, "mild steel" is just generic cheap steel
 
Fun (?) fact: In Swedish, "Superman" is called "Stålmannen", The Steel Man. I immediately tried to make a joke about the "Mild Steel Man", but realized it wouldn't work.
 
Makes sense I believe in the US he is "Superman - The man of steel"
 
Supperman, the man of mild steel
 
High Carbon Steel man
 
5:45 PM
And fibre. He's very regular.
 
@Kusalananda Mild-Mannered Steel Man.
 
A king or queen could be said to be regular, yes? Or is that regal? Yes, it's regal. Booring.
 
Also, galvanized iron is used here a lot.
The nicest thing about streaming is not having to watch ads.
So auto-tinting means the mask will automatically darken if the light intensity increases?
If so, fancy.
 
@Kusalananda Being regular is being regal
echo 'regular' | awk -F '' '{print $1$2$3$6$5}'
 
6:39 PM
Thanks for the fix @Kusalananda. Saving the day again :)
 
@Jesse_b Saving the day, a semicolon at a time.
 
I'm glad semicolons aren't as necessary in bash as they are in some other languages
 
Oh, but they are, unless you replace them by newlines :-)
 
@Kusalananda I'm going to convert all of my scripts to one liners
or ascii art
 
6:56 PM
@Jesse_b Neat.
 
 
2 hours later…
8:44 PM
@FaheemMitha Why Super Man....Micro soft sounds so much better. ah, 2h already.
 
8:57 PM
@RuiFRibeiro Huh?
@Jesse_b I might have mentioned this before, but I wanted to make a luggage box. I'd prefer aluminium, but what goes here is stainless steel or MS.
One question is whether aluminium is even suitable for a luggage box. Would be be too soft and easily dented?
I've heard that aluminium alloys are harder, but still softer than stainless steel, maybe.
 
@FaheemMitha Luggage box or luggage rack?
 
@Jesse_b Luggage box for storing luggage. Luggage rack is a small table type thing for putting luggage on top of, right?
Actually, I could use a luggage rack too.
But a luggage box is more important/useful.
 
Do you have any example of a luggage box
 
I got a quote for a stainless steel luggage box which looks reasonable. But I'd still prefer an aluminium one.
 
You could probably put it together without welding at all, just use rivets
rivets are awesome, they look cool and you get to say you are riveting
 
9:01 PM
@Jesse_b You could, but isn't welding better/stronger/sturdier?
 
Making your luggage box will be riveting
 
@FaheemMitha I have a sketch.
There are some people in the UK making aluminium boxes which look suitable.
 
if you really require that much strength aluminum isn't the right metal but really bolts are the strongest way to fasten metal
 
Unfortunately, I don't live in the UK.
 
welding is just a compromise being strength, speed, and convenience
 
9:02 PM
@Jesse_b Are bolts the same as rivets?
@Jesse_b being -> between?
 
@FaheemMitha They are not
yes sorry I meant between
 
@Jesse_b Oh
 
True rivets are actually the strongest fasteners but I was suggesting pop rivets which are easy to install
 
@Jesse_b I'm not sure how much strength I need. But obviously if I am going to this much trouble, I should have something that is strong.
@Jesse_b Difficulty isn't an issue here. Labor isn't that expensive. Expertise, on the other hand, is in short supply.
Unfortunately incompetence is in abundant supply.
 
Even pop rivets can be plenty strong though. Airstream camper trailers are all pop riveted together
 
9:05 PM
Something lighter would be nice, because it would be easy to move around. Between floors even. Of course, easy is relative.
@Jesse_b So that's better than welding?
 
@FaheemMitha I wouldn't say they are stronger than welding but they can be stronger than the aluminium you are using so they wouldn't be a weak point
It would be nice if I knew what a luggage box is though :p
 
@Jesse_b Ok.
@Jesse_b Shall I post my drawing?
 
Sure
 
Can I post PDFs in chat? Or should I put it somewhere else?
 
google is not much help
 
9:08 PM
 
Your measurements are in feet?!
 
That drawing won't win any beauty prizes. I was going to try to use a CAD/CAM type program, but couldn't get to grips with it.
@Jesse_b Yes, feet.
There is supposed to be a shelf in the middle. Not sure how clear that is.
 
so each shelf would be 1.5' tall?
I don't think I own any luggage that would even fit in that
Nor have I ever had the urge to store my luggage in a box. Doesn't seem very practical
 
@Jesse_b It's practical if you have short term guests.
 
The best thing about rivets though is they look cool
 
9:13 PM
@Jesse_b You're saying it's too short?
@Jesse_b That's a minor concern.
You're saying your suitcases are more than 1.5 ft high?
 
That box is riveted together
You could make something like that with: a pair of tin snips, a hand saw, a drill, and a pop rivet gun
 
@Jesse_b Hmm. Would it work with aluminium, then?
What's a tin snip?
 
Sure, that box is aluminum
For cutting sheet metal
 
@Jesse_b Oh, a tool.
 
I would say though that if you plan to make this on your own I recommend making a smaller version of it for practice first
 
9:17 PM
Like a scissors.
 
because you will ultimately make mistakes and have some lessons learned
 
@Jesse_b No, I'd have someone do it for me.
As mentioned earlier, I'm pretty hopeless at this kind of thing. And neither have the time nor the inclination to learn. Or maybe I'm just lazy.
So, to be clear, are rivets better that bolts? Because at different points, you said that both of them are the best.
 
@FaheemMitha hot rivets are stronger than bolts (marginally) but what I am suggesting is pop rivets, which are not stronger
 
@Jesse_b Ok. Why not hot rivets then?
 
@FaheemMitha It would be entirely unnecessary, hot rivets are used to hold bridges and skyscrapers together. Your luggage rack could be held together with bubble gum and hot glue and not fall apart
 
9:22 PM
@Jesse_b I hope you're right. Bubblegum wasn't at the top of my list of working materials.
 
I think with the design you showed me above you shouldn't have much durability concern
 
Hmm. Would you go with stainless steel or aluminium?
 
If you used pop rivets every 2" or so the materials it's made of would fail long before the rivets
Aluminium would be plenty strong enough but more expensive. Money being no concern I would use aluminum
 
@Jesse_b Wouldn't that depend on the material of the pop rivets?
 
Honestly I would make it out of wood though
 
9:24 PM
@Jesse_b Ok.
@Jesse_b Wouldn't wood be very heavy?
Remember, I'm trying to keep it lightweight.
 
@FaheemMitha Not really, I'm assuming you are going to skin it with thin sheet aluminum. In which case the weakest aluminum pop rivets would still be stronger
 
@Jesse_b Skin it?
 
They would pull through the metal before they sheered off which would be an issue for any fastener
@FaheemMitha Yeah well it would be a frame with a "skin" on it
 
@Jesse_b Oh, meaning the aluminium frame would be separate from the skin?
 
@FaheemMitha It would be heavier than aluminum but possibly lighter than steel. You can get very thin sheets of wood for the skin but they wouldn't be nearly as durable as either metal
 
9:26 PM
@Jesse_b Shear off meaning break off from the top?
 
@FaheemMitha Yeah that's how I would do it anyway
 
@Jesse_b Ok.
 
@FaheemMitha Yeah basically break in any way
 
@Jesse_b I see.
Unfortunately metalworking expertise isn't that easy to find around here. Of course, I could be looking in the wrong places.
 
I think you could do it
 
9:29 PM
@Jesse_b I could build it myself, you mean?
 
yeah
I have faith in you
 
So you think regular aluminium would be strong enough, as opposed to an alloy? And that dents and so forth wouldn't really be an issue? I don't have a good sense of how dentable aluminium is.
 
@FaheemMitha It would probably dent, but so would thin steel
That would just give it character though
 
@Jesse_b You do say the darnedest things.
I thought stainless steel would be less dingable. It's a lot harder, after all.
 
@FaheemMitha Yeah but the type of steel you are going to want to use to cover this box would be like 2-5mm thick
 
9:38 PM
@Jesse_b Something like that, yes.
My point is, for the same thickness, SS should be a lot harder than aluminium.
Or such is my impression. Obviously, I'm not a metalworker.
 
hardness is a small concern
Believe it or not your tooth is about as "hard" as stainless steel
meaning you can scratch stainless steel with your teeth
 
@Jesse_b Well, I wasn't planning to nibble on the box. But good to know.
 
aluminum scratches significantly easier, it is also more malleable than steel which is what would allow it to dent
That being said you can still very easily dent a 3mm thick piece of steel
 
@Jesse_b I see.
 
If dents are a concern you could use iron (joking) which is not very malleable at all but it will shear if subjected to great stress
 
9:42 PM
@Jesse_b Like I said, weight is an issue.
I don't know if I'm that concerned about dents.
 
@FaheemMitha That's why I was joking :p
 
@Jesse_b Right.
 
Yeah I mean it would be difficult to do I think but if you stretched the sheet of metal tight enough it would be difficult to dent it
 
@Jesse_b I don't follow that. How do you stretch a sheet of metal? And what metal do you mean?
 
@FaheemMitha Either steel or aluminum. and I guess it wouldn't necessarily be "stretched" but pulled very taught while it is being fastened so it remains taught
similar to the way a chain link fence is installed
 
9:46 PM
@Jesse_b I didn't realise pulling was an option.
@Jesse_b taught -> taut?
 
@FaheemMitha Yes
 
@Jesse_b You seem to like that image.
You've posted it before.
 
@Jesse_b You're 15,569/4,271=3.6 times smarter than me!
 
meh
almost all of that rep has come from typing OPs question into google

@Fabby Is that called... math?
 
@FaheemMitha I don't think so... That's just bean counting.
 
@Fabby What kinds of beans?
 
$ math scale 2 15569/4271
3.64
 
@FaheemMitha Unicorn beans... (aka "Rep")

@Jesse_b That's not math!
This is math:
 
$ awk 'BEGIN{ for (i=0;i<5;i++) { a+=i; print "Fabby this is math",a,"+",i,"=",a+i } }'
Fabby this is math 0 + 0 = 0
Fabby this is math 1 + 1 = 2
Fabby this is math 3 + 2 = 5
Fabby this is math 6 + 3 = 9
Fabby this is math 10 + 4 = 14
 
@Jesse_b :D :D :D
Seriously: Is all of that "Mathematics" nowadays?
Mathematics was something else when I was a kid.
 
I'm not sure what it is but I'm always willing to get awkward

Another good one.
You can see that I don't use *nix professionally any more.

Stop it! I'm not used to laughing any more! My cheeks hurt!

(Isn't that sad???)
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
(li|u)n(?(?<=un)i|u)x
That would ensure it doesn't match linix or unux
 
I haven't used Unix since 1998? 1999?
 
linix would make more sense than linux
I haven't used unix since $(date)
 
It's Linus's friend's fault!
 
Linus should change his name to linis
