2 hours later…
vzn
4:12 AM
@realz its a start =|
 
lol
@vzn that doesn't sound promising
 
vzn
is that a symbol/indicator from somewhere?
 
I guess I suck at making logos
its sort of a copy of BSG's cylon eyes
 
vzn
hey its better than nothing
 
and a reference to AI \in CS
well, I have drawn many drafts of different logos, thats one
 
vzn
4:13 AM
ok then its a great idea just needs finetuning.
 
the "cience" part is because everywhere i posting cs.stackexchange.com, ppl assume it is CSharp
yes
that dumb ppl are :P
 
vzn
try starting from this one... =)
 
lol I can't do complicated in svg
and the one I did is from the new BSG
 
vzn
you did yours in svg?
 
yes
and that is what I am representing
bsg fans might get it
I can make it look closer to that one
 
vzn
4:18 AM
why svg? from the announcement "must be gif or png"
 
svg because svg is easy to reproduce
and modify
svg is a superset to png
it can export ...
 
vzn
@RealzSlaw yeah cool & has a better uniform bkg for lettering on top
 
what has better uniform background
 
vzn
yours would work better with overlaid lettering than mine
 
oh
I don't want to use actual pictures
they are copyrighted
I have to remake them
... in svg
 
vzn
4:23 AM
spoilsport :p
 
lol
its not me, its the law :P
 
vzn
gravity, its the law!
 
heh
I have some other designs
same template though
CS ... SE
 
vzn
maybe running those images through a paint program with paint effects.
theres a lot of free image sites too.
 
dunno, I am not a graphics guy
oh you mean the copyrighted images?
mmm, thats still derived
same thing
 
vzn
4:28 AM
geez this is harder than P=?NP
 
lol
my other ones have less copyright issue
 
vzn
this is a very "cool" site: cooltext.com
 
eww
lol
 
vzn
runs on linux/gimp =)
In copyright law, a derivative work is an expressive creation that includes major, copyright-protected elements of an original, previously created first work (the underlying work). United States law Definition In the United States, the Copyright Act defines "derivative work" in : A “derivative work” is a work based upon one or more preexisting works, such as a translation, musical arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion picture version, sound recording, art reproduction, abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed, or adapted.

4:36 AM
it would be quite amusing to get our logo on stackoverflow.
 
lol
 
vzn
but quite achievable. apparently it only takes 6 votes there also....?
 
mm cool
I'll make some more, we can vote on cs.SE meta maybe
 
vzn
was gonna do one for tcs.se & offered in meta but they're all giving me the cold shoulder for ages
 
I dunno if we can even muster 6 votes though lol
our meta is metastasized
:P
 
vzn
4:41 AM
maybe gilles/raphael will ease up on their airs
 
hi @Rouke
 
vzn
yes! become one with the borg!
was gonna do one on turing!
 
lol
 
vzn
thats a semifamous statue from bletchley park museum
 
mmm
 
vzn
4:44 AM
gilles has advocated "send them to us" on stackoverflow here/comments
 
I doing that
I got at least 2 so far
 
vzn
the logo(s) are probably a far more effective way than "shouting in the wind"
 
well
if you find CS related posts on SO
you put a comment in there
the owner now becomes aware of cs.SE
(most are just not aware it exists)
 
Do you guys know any C++?
 
a little
but C++ is better for stackoverflow :D
unless it is a CS question
 
4:49 AM
I know :P I can't find any chat rooms devoted to the language. Stack overflow the site makes me uneasy, especially when your questions are "public". Chat rooms seem more private
 
vzn
@RealzSlaw there is no need to vote on meta.cs.se, we have to find the meta.so.se post on logos and engage there
 
these rooms are not private at all @Rouke
they are searchable
@vzn yeah, but in order to get 6 votes, we have to get ppl from our meta to go to that meta
 
vzn
yeah. true.
 
Hmm, I've never found a search result that brought me to a chat room o.o!
 
@Rouke I have
@Rouke you can try IRC
 
vzn
4:50 AM
rouke interesting what page, you can paste the link. yes there is c++ knowledge here but stackoverflow is better for coding questions
 
but then again, I only use Google you guts probably use more advanced search techniques?
guys*
 
I use google too
maybe better search words? dunno
 
vzn
google is the advanced search technique. its like parachuting in cyberspace =)
 
well then
what is IRC?
 
4:53 AM
its chat
its a protocol for chat
there are clients and servers, rooms etc.
 
So this is an IRC?
 
no
IRC is one protocol
 
vzn
aha all the community-ads tag on meta.so
 
this is a custom chat web application
 
vzn
alas! its all for "open source projects"
 
4:54 AM
@vzn yeah, competition :D
 
vzn
seems strange that other sites have more general community ads
 
@Rouke freenode (an IRC server) has several c++ channels
 
vzn
maybe they might chg that a little
 
large ones
but ofc, someone might be logging them and publishing the logs :P
there is no way to know lol
@Rouke are you worried your professor will find you asking for your HW :P
 
vzn
rouke go here.
 
4:56 AM
Hahah, I have several questions that will save me hours
 
vzn
1st question as I speak is on c++ :p
this is the stackexchange chat for computer science
 
that will save me hours if they were answered
 
@vzn he is afraid his professor will see him asking his homework questions :P
 
alright, i'll ask away over there
 
vzn
re professors/hw that stops few ppl on se sites... policy is mixed/case-by-case/se-by-se. some incl cs.se have a semitolerant policy. tcs.se, its banned
 
5:03 AM
it always depends on wording
HW-worded questions are just plain lazy askers
that is the REAL reason they are banned :P
 
vzn
@Rouke ofc search 1st
 
and almost always get downvotes, on all sites
 
vzn
there is prob quite a bit of hw on cs.se afaict
 
yep
on anywhere
if you have grad HW, you can prolly word it good for tcs
 
vzn
site does spec say its for students
 
5:05 AM
students trying to understand something
 
vzn
lots of debate about hw on cs.se.meta.... a real saga
 
not dumping homework
ie. depends how it is worded
ie. depends how lazy the asker is
if they bother to word it in a HW-agnostic way
 
vzn
all can say is that wish had stackexchange when was a student :|
 
lol
 
vzn
theres a guy at my corp routinely using it for his assignments snicker
 
5:15 AM
rofl
 
vzn
alas his days are numbered... low it seems... grim reaper approaching rapidly =(
boo!
 
lol
 
 
2 hours later…
7:34 AM
@RealzSlaw I'm not the right person to ask about visual appearance. My tastes are unusual
 
 
3 hours later…
10:12 AM
