6:00 PM
Sorry for still remaining off-topic, but … Gotta work tomorrow; damnit .__.
 
For a refreshment
Yes, I'm having a xkcd tab open in my browser.
 
Jan
@M.A.Ramezani And THAT is why I don't use my phone as an alarm clock except in emergencies!
 
Ahhh...The buzzer alarm.
 
Jan
The beauties of being the last one in the lab in the evening: Having music and singing loudly \m/
 
@M.A.Ramezani this patent looks good ..
sorry, my boss came in so had to listen what he had to say ..
 
Jan
6:16 PM
Anybody who does organic chemistry: is triethyl phosphite a chemical than can go bad quickly when in contact with oxygen? Tributyl phosphane does but then again that can be oxydised a lot more easily …
 
@Jan Wikipedia's this sentence is all I know about triethyl phosphite.
> For example triethylphosphite is known to reduce certain hydroperoxides to alcohols formed by autoxidation.
 
so, it seems like no one ever tried electroless plating with Hg
 
Jan
=D Not exactly much ;)
 
@Muzammil Heh. Now I want a shirt that says do the needful.
Anyone here obsessed with Sigma-Aldrich?
> Sigma-Aldrich.com will be down for scheduled maintenance Saturday, June 13, 2015, at 3:00 p.m. (15:00) Central Daylight Time U.S. for approximately 4 hours. Please note that you will still have telephone and email access to our local offices.
 
ha ha .. :D
 
6:30 PM
@Muzammil Well, yes: See this: google.com/…
 
Jan
We tried accessing the Sigma site during our seminar this morning (like eleven hours ago … damnit, today is a twelve-hour day already ~.~) and it wasn't accessible xD
 
I haz 1337 skillz in Googling. :{}
 
Jan
Well at least a dark bottle in the closet is pretty safe from both light irradiation and singlet oxygen xD
 
@M.A.Ramezani You like my graph? chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/9743/…
LaTeX rocks :)
 
Jan
@LordStryker I remember doing those exact same calculations in quantum chemistry class xD
 
6:39 PM
@LordStryker It's so red as sht I f**ing love it! (Reference to the image above)
 
@Jan Its a very useful exercise.
 
Jan
@LordStryker Oh yes, definitely!
 
Oh wow I didn't realize 9 people favorited that question!
 
@LordStryker Don't worry. It needs 25 for a silver badge.
 
@M.A.Ramezani You certainly know your badges.
 
6:43 PM
Hah!
 
I've been here 3 years and I only have 45 badges, no gold.
I suppose I'm not much of a badge chaser.
 
I was...But my chase only ended up in my getting only one badge.
Guess which badge.
 
Jan
Fanatic would likely be the easiest gold to chase for; electorate the easiest gold to get passing-by.
 
@Jan Yes.
 
Jan
Only some twenty more days for me on German.SX until I get Fanatic \o/
And then I want the loonatic badge x3
 
6:45 PM
Wut?
 
@Jan I was 1 day away from getting fanatic
 
Jan
@LordStryker Ouch, that hurts =C
 
I was at home in FL during the last few days. I thought I had logged in from my tablet but it hadn't unfortunately.
After which I decided screw it.
 
Loonatic:

Q: Editing gone wild

ronIt seems that editing posts has recently gone out of control. There is certainly a need for editing and it has always been occurring. In the past it seems like one person at a time was responsible for making 10-15 edits everyday. Now, there are several people doing this throughout the day. Af...

 
Jan
It says you need to be 'active' … maybe being online is just not enough ;)
 
6:46 PM
And I'm 63 upboats away from electorate
@Jan Active is what I meant.
 
@Jan I'm aiming at Copy Editor.
 
Jan
So loonatic badge (colour: tin) for 100 pointless edits? 8D
I'm just over 55 % for electorate and half way for Copy Editor on German ^^
 
Yeah, I've seen dozens of pointless edits from badge chasers....
 
Jan
On the other SX's I'm not going to actively pursue anything. I still am damn surprised about my four or so bronze badges on Ask.ubuntu yesterday xD
 
Well, let me tell you my SE timeline.
About 10 months ago, a curious learner joined chem.SE.
 
Jan
6:55 PM
And I'm seeing someone going for a badge with 2.6k rep on Anime & Manga right as we speak xD
 
He had no idea what these Q/A sites were.
He asked some questions, and got 37 rep for them.
Three months later...
He had a tough test going on.
One of the questions, he thought, could be asked in chem.SE.
<censored>
<censored> <censored>
 
Uh?
lol
 
Jan
Lemme guess: 'This is a homework question! Go away, silly nooby idiot!'
 
Nope.
'Unclear what you're asking'
Never closed though.
Because it wasn't terribly unclear.
 
I HAVE AWAKEN
 
Jan
6:58 PM
Good morning!
 
Just that some people thought it was a bad question.
Anyways, Morning @san!
 
Jan
@santiago Need us vampires be scared now?
 
Vampires always should be scared
 
Bottom line is, I'm no hero dudes! @Lord @san @Martin @Nicolau @Jan everybody else.
 
I am 2 upvotes from a necromancer!
 
7:00 PM
One of the main reasons I didn't nominate.
 
@M.A.Ramezani yup, you are a hero
 
Jan
Only one? heh heh heh
 
Ah @M.A.Ramezani, so overdramatic as always :)
 
Hah!
Seriously though, my aim at first (or second since it was after 4 months of "membership") wasn't to help chem.SE grow.
 
You know Martin left in a meta post something about how he loves getting a ton of pings.
We should all ping @Martin-マーチン
 
7:01 PM
rejoice that the ground state chromium question is answered
@Martin-マーチン
 
Jan
@santiago Link please?
 
promise not to laugh
3
A: Ground state electron configuration of chromium

santiagoWebElements page about chromium (and a number of resources) agree with the comment by @Philipp: The ground state electron configuration of ground state gaseous neutral chromium is $\ce{[Ar]}3d^54s^1$ Which can be written as $\ce{[Ar]}4s^13d^5$ According to the Royal Society of Chemistry...

 
@Martin-マーチン I recently found this functional. I thought you might like it. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_functional#B3LYP
 
@Martin-マーチン @LordStryker found a functional thingie
 
But I can tell you, after 350 rep, when I got to review first posts, I have cared and loved and cared again about chem.SE.
@Martin.
@MARTIN!
 
7:04 PM
You know once @Martin is elected, we'll have to be careful because he will be able to ban all of our sorry butts...
 
@Martin @Martin!
@Lord told me to ping you.
 
prepares bribes and tributes
1 away from a necromancer (and a few away from copy editor)
 
@Martin-マーチン @santiago will upboat all of your digs if you don't ban him :)
 
You first!
 
lol
omg omg omg
 
Jan
7:07 PM
Well, I've seen worse answers to mediocre questions ;)
 
you mean, I can do worse??? dang have to try harder
lol
 
@santiago No worries...You're learning.
 
Jan
The question could have been a lot better with a bit more effort, though xD
 
oh yes, the question was very ...flat
but I thought, meh, I would give a bit of a chunky answer
 
bwahaha!
 
7:10 PM
BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
 
Wait...
 
Jan
Which makes me think … Say somebody wrote a real good question asking why chromium 'violates' the aufbau principle; would that be pointed there and closed as a duplicate? If so, that would be a shame …
 
@Jan no it wouldn't be a dupe, related but not a dupe
 
@Jan Don't worry...We have a guy named @Martin in chem.SE.
And we have a place named meta.Chem.SE.
 
and the article I linked doesn''t really explain why chromium violates the aufbau principle
 
Jan
7:12 PM
All hail chemistry's god Martin-マーチン xD
 
That only begins to explain him.
 
@Martin-マーチン is chemistry
 
Jan
What did my supervisor say some time ago? 'What do calculations prove? Do they replace the experiment? No!' xD
 
@santiago Have you seen Ron's activity? That man is a machine I swear...
 
Jan
@LordStryker I agree … I see his work everywhere o.o'''
 
7:15 PM
yup, @ron is super-chemistry
 
@Jan To belittle the contributions from either theory or experiment only detracts from the overall goal...
 
It's simple: @Ron = Organochem 100% pure.
 
@M.A.Ramezani I'm strictly computational and I am very comfortable with that. :)
 
level necromancer achieved!
 
Any future doctoral-candidates in here?
 
Jan
7:16 PM
Possibly the experiment counts just a wee bit more in a total synthesis lab? ;)
 
I am.
 
Jan
puts hands up
 
In a little far future.
 
Jan
Within twelve months.
 
Very cool! :)
Prepare thyself :)
 
7:17 PM
In 20 years.
 
Jan
Don't remind me X__X
 
No no, that's my post-doctoral.
 
I have a doctorate
 
@santiago You should put that in your profile then :)
 
instrumentation
 
7:21 PM
@santiago What does it mean exactly?
 
What was your thesis on?
 
@LordStryker How to lol effectively in SE chatrooms.
3
 
LOL
 
How to vaporise angry homework vampires
LOL
 
Jan
I hear stakes are effective
 
7:22 PM
And get 15 meta upvotes outta their limb
@Jan Haven't read @san's thesis.
 
they work, however for more fun, using UVB and UVC imaging really enhances the slaughter
 
Jan
Just speaking from experi… no wait …
Good to hear that @santiago only had to do with weak-breeds then phew!
Did you have the occasional sparkling disco-ball, too?
 
lol
 
B3LYP is the best density functional in the world!
3
 
yup, and my disco ball shoots out lasers!
 
7:24 PM
He had! HE HAD! Alert the media!
 
Jan
I'm confused. Why are some stars hollow?
 
@Jan Because they are lonely.
 
@Jan They're a pin.
 
Jan
If anybody finds a box of star-shaped pin board pins, notify me, I'll buy them! =D
 
@Jan I found it! I found it!
yesterday, by M.A.Ramezani
We are having elections, visit meta.chemistry.SE for more information or check the parent chat room.
 
7:26 PM
they taste like chicken
 
Who? Pins? Homework vampires? Stars?
 
@santiago Where are you from?
 
Jan
Homework Twilight's disco balls? (Sparkle in the light ;) )
See you around, guys. Gonna go shopping now and home after that o/
 
@LordStryker originally, Chile - but are ell travelled, currently in the wilds of Brisbane, Qld
 
Ba bye @Jan!
 
7:28 PM
See ya @Jan :)
 
Bye @Jan!
 
Oh wow. You certainly moved a lengthy bit.
 
Jan
Brisbane! I did a school exchange with the Gold Coast =D (But now I'm really gone)
 
have lived in Sweden, France, South Africa, Singapore, Japan and now Australia
the car accident a while back put a temporary halt on my travel
 
@santiago Where were you born?
 
7:31 PM
Chile
 
SwFrSASJaAu
 
in a cave on a mystic hill
 
@santiago Oh!
@santiago Inside a coffin?
 
lol
you got me, I am the anti-homework-vampire vampire
 
I take that as a yes.
 
7:34 PM
@M.A.Ramezani I love the link to 'your website'
 
where?
 
@LordStryker Thanks!
Or tanks.
@santiago My profile. Visit my site, and give feedback!
 
Its got what we like to call... attitude
 
very pretty pictures
 
Tanks!
Hey! Even if it was a real thingy it was most probably going to be Persian, so doesn't matter anyways.
 
7:40 PM
Well we have Google Translate so you're right, it wouldn't matter.
I almost decided to be snarky and say
 
Haha!
 
nd @Martin-マーチン would his superpowers and translate
 
"Well we would never bother to visit so you're right, it wouldn't matter."
2
 
Google translate translate stuff like Charlie Chaplin would do.
 
Man... I need a drink...
 
7:45 PM
Is that sleepwalking?
 
@M.A.Ramezani does sleep-chemistry
 
Akh, you forgot to kbdicize it! It's !
 
I am still proud of
 
Sad What was I thinking? I should've not retagged that Q...
I've done a treason to cat kingdom.
 
what a catastrophe!
 
8:01 PM
:) What a great day.
A dear friend of mine just got her PhD a few minutes ago.
 
Yayayayayayayyayayayayayayayyyyyyyayayayayayayay!
 
I know. We used to work in the same lab when we were both just undergraduates.
 
That's a good feeling...
 
@LordStryker epic!
 
Oh something ruined my day though. Some chat message that I saw now.
 
8:04 PM
lol
 
No no, not here.
Some other room.
Don't follow @SAN!
 
8:26 PM
OK good slash cool people! I'm off to sleep!
 
\o @M.A.Ramezani
Sleep tight.
 
 
2 hours later…
Jan
10:13 PM
@santiago You've certainly been around!
 
yup, more travelling soon... maybe
 
Jan
Only places I've spent extensive amounts of time (i.e. more than a month) are England, Germany, Finland and Australia.
Still dreaming of a post doc in Japan, though ^^
 
Japan is epic
The accident a while back has slowed me down temporarily
 
 
1 hour later…
11:47 PM
5 beers in. Good times.
Friday night son! Get your weekend on!
