@fredley ><
Hello friends
5:11 PM
hi @GnomeSlider
how is work?
Q: Let’s improve our site navigation

SklivvzA.k.a. the 2015 Questions to Answer Refactoring Konversion (QuARK) A.k.a. the great cheese move of 2015. TL:DR; we are looking to change the navigation of the question lists on the site. We are not looking to remove any functionality or break any existing link. This is not final. We’re taking...

Work is done
First time I've had less than a full day at new horn
For fuck shake
god donut
Gonna need to make a translator for @GnomeSpeak
5:13 PM
I'm not quite sure how job becomes horn
we really should add gnomeslice's autocorrect woes to the meta meme thread
Just deal eight it
Deal eight? We playing cards?
5:16 PM
Google should add an "Autocorrect" translation along with Klingon and Pirate
Yes that works he idea
That would be ideal
I hate envy tho

Brb, building a @GnomeSlice dictionary. Or as he would call it, a microwave.
You guys are so meab
5:19 PM
Microbe rag
@Unionhawk you should expect that, we're the fridge
@fredley Doesn't mention the Firefox bugs at all
user image
@Unionhawk That's not really as bad as it sounds. The long name makes it obvious that enabling it is a bad idea
5:20 PM
What is that #alwayswait2minutes thing about anyway
@GnomeSlice after 2 minutes, only mod abuse can edit a post
@Chippies Well he had it coming. The cat was making it very clear that the dude's feet were smelly.
I've seen it in other places I thought
@OrigamiRobot cats love smelly feet though
so perhaps they weren't smelly enough?
Only certain smelly feet.
5:21 PM
@GnomeSlice idk in that case
@Unionhawk wat
most likely the cat just didn't want to walk around, but still wanted to pass
Point is, the cat was communicating as best it could.
@fredley YEP
Or he was just locked
5:22 PM
Be considerate of the cat in this situation: you were in its way
AKA: poorly
Honestly, the dude was probably making some sound that the cat hated.
@OrigamiRobot Blame @Wipqozn
5:23 PM
Cats do savages the duck they wang
@OrigamiRobot That's totally the cat playing.
Bela does the exact same thing.
you're just going to start doing this on purpose at some point
Why does my phone correct to wang
I love @GnomeSlice's funky phone
5:24 PM
@GnomeSlice phone autocorrect usually learns and corrects to commonly used words by the user
@GnomeSlice Perhaps type slower, and check before pressing enter?
@GnomePhone for Lifehack mod
@fredley Though, as they said, if they're already modifying configs like that with reasonable precision, it's probably over whether or not there exists a disable security preference.
It doesn't help that I'm on the busty
busty free for all! Where do I sign?
5:25 PM
why don't you just re-read the message before you post it, you dingus
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
@Rapitor Because it's funnier this way
Me, read shot Borgore I say it? Ha
5:26 PM
...I can't tell if that's on purpose or not.
This road is ducking horrible
But it makes a rather effective demonstration.
I tried.
What happened?
5:27 PM
@AshleyNunn and that's all that matters!
You. You happened.
@rapitor that explains why it keeps wanting to autocorrect to shit that doesn't even make send
Protip: read the messages you're about to send before sending them
I don't understand why people even use autocorrect in the first place
No wait, don't, this stuff is hilarious
5:28 PM
@fredley I already tried that suggestion
I have never heard anyone compliment autocorrect
@Chippies I use swiftkey, that sutff is great
@fredley I love Swiftkey
@Chippies Why would they? The only time you're going to comment on it is when it's wrong
@fredley I use Swype.
5:29 PM
I used to not use it but my phone typing I'd do bad everything just comes out bullseye
@AshleyNunn SwiftKey is the best
SwiftKey makes some interesting corrections sometimes though too
So many keystrokes saved
Like, I type a word, and it decides I want a different word
5:29 PM
@Yuuki Swiftkey is a superset of swype
@Unionhawk sometimes, but for me it is very rare
Bull shut
I tried Swype forever ago, I hated it
@fredley Something something something is a superset!
I use the default Google swiping keyboard
5:29 PM
1 min ago, by fredley
Protip: read the messages you're about to send before sending them
Bull shitttttttt
@GnomeSlice teach your phone to understand curse words. I had to. :P
@murgatroid99 I hate the way it looks for whatever reason.
@AshleyNunn then it can start autocorrecting benign words into curse words instead!
Haha I usually only text my dad and I don't curse in those revs
5:30 PM
@cloudymusic want->wang
@OrigamiRobot I hate the way you look
@Chippies I hate swipe type keyboards but since Swiftkey works either way, it's great
Swype is the best. I can absolutely butcher the word I'm trying for and it still gets it.
Swiftkey > Swype
Swiftkey > Swype
5:31 PM
@AshleyNunn sooo, what's the benefit of SwiftKey if you use it as a regular keyboard?
Fixed it for you
Swiftkey predicts the word I'm going to type next, and I can't cope without this functionality any more
The only problem is there seems to be another autocorrect function fighting for control
Swype errors are catastrophic though
28 secs ago, by fredley
Swiftkey predicts the word I'm going to type next, and I can't cope without this functionality any more
5:32 PM
@Unionhawk but then you can just backspace the whole word and try again
@Chippies really good correction and prediction - you can let it "learn" from your email/social networks, if you want, and it pays attention to corrections/predictions you pick (or not)
I find that keyboard with prediction just makes me focus on what words it's offering me, rather than actually typing them
Most of the time, I don't have to type at all with SwiftKey
Like, at least swiftkey can maybe guess kind of what I want if I fail, but swype will just throw unrelated words and a lot of times I won't notice until it's too late
5:32 PM
At most I have to type the first three letters of a word
and you can tell it RIGHT away not to predict a thing for a chosen set of characters
I don't know what SwiftKey is, but I know it didn't come pre-installed on my phone whereas Swype did. That's pretty much all the convincing I need.
by the time I pick out that the word I was offered is the one I want, I could have finished typing the word already
@OrigamiRobot IE came pre-installed on windows machines...
I miss physical keyboards on my phone. Like the early gen androids.
5:33 PM
@Chippies I don't use it for prediction as much as correction
@Batophobia Confirmed: IE > all other browsers
@Batophobia Yea, and I actively had a problem with it. I don't with Swype.
And it is really good at understanding the butchery I make of words
@AshleyNunn that makes sense, I don't trust auto correction thingies though
@Chippies trust but verify
5:34 PM
@AshleyNunn This. Even on 'precise' mode it knows what I'm trying to do
@Chippies I usually hate them, but since this one attempts to learn your style and words/phrases you use often, its greaty
But green of words is like what autocorrect is debug to do appetizer
I HIV up
it also doesn't help that last time I actually used texting was in Latvia, where I would be typing in different languages and auto correct is the worst with that
@Chippies oh yeah, that gets tricky
@cloudymusic but I can tell if I make a mistake if I'm paying attention to what I'm typing, if I allow auto correction, I have to re-read everything
5:35 PM
I use the Russian language pack on Swiftkey and it handles my terrible russian pretty well. I don't use it much (because I am still a very much beginner at Russian) but it works nicely
also, red squigglies are easier to notice than properly spelt words that aren't what you want them to be
@Chippies SwiftKey has pretty good language support
@AshleyNunn TIL you speak Russian
@fredley 1) probably requires switching languages 2) doubt it supports slang
@Chippies Slang support for British is good, and it learns from your typing anyway (past and future)
Whenever I try to say "don't" on my phone, I always get dint with a red underline and a white drop down menu for corrected words.
5:36 PM
@fredley in Latvia it's common to mix latvian, russian and english words into your vocab
That is not Swype's normal behavior.
i.e., you let it access your texts, it learns how you word
I have no idea what's doing that.
@Chippies It can learn this
5:37 PM
@Unionhawk This is the biggest problem with the ISPs.
@fredley so can default google keyboard, afaik
They're willing to reap the benefits, but they don't want the restrictions that go with it.
just add everything you use to dictionary
@Chippies So manual
No it isn't
5:37 PM
@Frank that's pretty much all business entities
Swiftkey -> tell it to read my texts and work it out. Google Keyboard, I'm assuming you have to add each word as you type it.
Hmm, it's not doing it now. Maybe they fixed whatever it was in some update.
@cloudymusic Well, yes, but it's rather hypocritical of companies to do so.
@fredley I read it better than I speak it - I took it a few semesters in uni, and am slowly using Rosetta stone to learn more
Having to type words out fully also helps you not forget how to properly spell them
5:38 PM
@AshleyNunn Neat. Does Duolingo have it yet?
@Frank Absolutely 100%, I just mean that it's not limited to ISPs
@Chippies Not neccesssarilly
@fredley I don't think so, last I checked.
@cloudymusic Fair enough.
@fredley text speech is part of why people nowadays can't spell
or rather don't care to spell right
"it's internet, not an english class!"
5:40 PM
@fredley just checked, doesn't have it yet. Has Dutch though, so I might also poke at that (because it would make my family, my grandma especially, happy. (My mom and her family came here from the Netherlands when my mom was 3))
@AshleyNunn you're like, the most diverse person I know!
@Chippies I'm a redneck rural white kid, so this is cracking me up
(I don't know that many people)
@Chippies Welcome to Not America
@Chippies Is it time to go over that conversation from yesterday?
5:41 PM
Hmm, Cities:Skylines is a bit more demanding on the GPU than I expected. Looks like I really need to buy a new one soon.
@murgatroid99 was I involved in the conversation? Which one are we talking about here?
Damn kids these days have their brains augmented by the google and are getting progressively dumber! shakes fist sarcastically
That's kind of the middle of the conversation
@murgatroid99 There's 2 sides of the coin with that though
5:42 PM
(hint: the conclusion of the conversation was "no, kids these days are no dumber than kids back in your day")
@Chippies What's the other side?
@murgatroid99 sure, you can not spell words fully because you're in a hurry, but eventually you'll have to spell properly and you won't remember how, because you have spelt words wrong your whole life
and for me personally, I find typing words out fully to be faster than to come up with short versions of words
@Chippies I think you missed the point I was trying to make
I'm pretty sure shorthand and abbreviations have existed for a long time.
@murgatroid99 Most likely so
5:44 PM
@Chippies Text speech is part of why people nowadays can't spell language is evolving.
@OrigamiRobot Nope, this generation invented them. Obviously.
Damn generations
@Chippies You made a comment about the decreasing writing capabilities of "people nowadays". My point was that people have been saying that for 150+ years, and somehow, we're not all complete morons
I can guarantee anyone who knew Old English would be appalled at your spelling. And also not able to understand you at all.
these kids nowadays with their music and their lack of respect for their elders
5:45 PM
Or even Middle English.
Stupid word of the day: Ecclectronic
TIL I'm an old cranky man
Somehow, every generation writes worse than the previous for over a hundred years, but we can still write just fine. It doesn't add up
@GnomeSlice I can't tell if that's a word or your phone tried to interpret "electronic".
No I'm home now.
5:45 PM
@GnomeSlice is that some weird music subgenre?
@GnomeSlice Oh, okay.
It's some made up subgenre some artist put on his facebook page.
sounds about right

> Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.
@GnomeSlice An artist's job is making stuff up
5:46 PM
- Socrates
@murgatroid99 I'm pretty sure I've seen that before, it's so great
24 hours ago, by GnomeSlice
Wow, I used to post a lot of dumb shit
This is so perfect with the stars list.
People have literally been complaining about disrespectful youth since the beginning of written history
Further, I propose that technology shouldn't be considered a crutch just because back in your day you learned to spell by writing shit down and checking against a paper dictionary.
@Unionhawk exactly. If technology was a crutch, as a civilization, we wouldn't be getting better at doing things
5:49 PM
@Unionhawk TBH I'm much more likely to double-check my spelling if I can just google it rather than pull out a paper dictionary
Exactly. Technology is a tool goddammit. It is not making us dumber or anything like that, it is enhancing our ability to spell things correctly (provided we care enough to listen to the squiggly lines and whatnot) (and also working solely on this example for some reason)
@GnomeSlice If you want to bait stars, say something like "Wow, I still post a lot of dumb shit"
@fredley rekt
theweebl is following me on twitter now apparently
@fredley I did learn just now that they are working on a Russian course for Duolingo, which is AWESOME and makes me happy
5:51 PM
@Unionhawk Also, if you want to go full descriptivist, text shorthand isn't "incorrect spelling" as long as everyone in the conversation understands it.
Also Esperanto, which is making me giggle
@murgatroid99 This!
(I hate prescriptivism)
Consider the argument shot down (and then shot again when it hit the ground, for good measure)
5:53 PM
@AshleyNunn "this language isn't the same as it was 300 years ago so we're clearly degenerating as a society"
@AshleyNunn Yeah. They can't push out languages fast enough
@AshleyNunn I think it has its place, if only for the fact that having a centrally curated repository of words and definitions is probably the best way to ensure mutual understanding
@AshleyNunn Right on, sister
@cloudymusic Everyone should speak proper Old English, am I right?
@AshleyNunn Verily.
5:54 PM
I can't wait for schools to teach text speech, so I can rant about it online as I sit in a rocking chair and shout at kids on my lawn.
@Frank Pretty sure that's Middle.
@AshleyNunn Ryte on thee marke, Sistere
@AshleyNunn I have no idea, honestly. It sounded Shakespearean.
@AshleyNunn I thought it was early Modern
@murgatroid99 Yes, but the tenets and concepts that prescriptivists cling to have very little place in a transformative society
5:55 PM
@murgatroid99 I waffled, but I am pretty sure you're right, my mistake
@Frank Which is nowhere near Old English.
I'm not sure if people are even using real words in the chat now...
@AshleyNunn Aww. And here I thought I was fulfilling the joke.
(rants about ye and thorns and things)
@Chippies how can words be real if our chat isn't real
5:55 PM
I remember learning in an English class that Middle English would be basically incomprehensible to a modern English speaker
@cloudymusic how can our chat be real if I'm not real
@Chippies We're never using real words. Any semblance to real words is purely a figment of your imagination
@Frank I am just picky, because people think "medieval speak" is Old English, when really.....you'd never be able to understand it
@cloudymusic wrong capitalization for jayden quote
@AshleyNunn Probably not, no.
5:56 PM
@Chippies I have been known to say brb outloud. but i take it one step dumber and just say "berb"
@MattGiltaji oh right, sorry
@Rapitor I just say bee arr bee
@MattGiltaji How Can Jayden Be Real If Capitals Aren't Real?
@Chippies Arby's?
@Frank I can pretty much guarantee it
5:57 PM
@fredley don't think I've ever been in a country that has that
@murgatroid99 Middle you might be able to muddle through
@cloudymusic Surely it should be: "How can chat be real if words aren't real?"
@Chippies We have them?
Q: Blockdata Problems Please Help

user105994I've been working on something that uses lots of blockdata commands. It was all going well until I needed to put a enchanted book that works with anvils into the command so that I could get it out of the chest above and be able to use it to enchant something with efficiency v but I don't know how...

@AshleyNunn we do? Not in Newfoundland, afaik
5:57 PM
Beowulf is Old English, and it looks like this:
@Chippies I've seen a few here
to be fair, we don't have anything, in Newfoundland
@Chippies Newfoundland is also purely fictional
@fredley -1 forgot jaden case
5:58 PM
except snow. We have snow. A lot of snow.
beowulf is the one that had Angelina Jolie topless right
@murgatroid99 I -knew- Beowulf was going to come into this. :P
@KevinvanderVelden NewlyimaginedLand
@Unionhawk what is jaden case?
@AshleyNunn It's the best example I know of of Old English writing
5:58 PM
@GnomeSlice just watch gia
@fredley This Is Jaden Case
@fredley This Is Jaden Case
@Chippies naah it was found when people found some really good shrooms
@murgatroid99 It's the best example almost anyone knows :) That's why it is taught so much.
@murgatroid99 This Is Jaden Case?
5:58 PM
Capitalize Every Word Because They're All Important
I Think This Is A Good Idea
Although It's A Bit Of A Chore
quits chat
@AshleyNunn a high school teacher of mine played a phonograph of someone reading beowulf in old english. it was damn near unintelligible
It only works in the formal of a jaden smith style tweet thing though
