12:06 PM
@Wipqozn Did you Bloodborne yet?
 
Oh you
 
@Sterno Yes
I found that Hunter Armor in the sewer
 
@Wipqozn Well, you should stop. That game is lame.
Go play Pillars of Eternity
 
Then I saw an obvious trap and decided to wlk into it for loot, and then the loot was terrible and I died.
 
Are you talking about all the bodies on the ground with a big glowy thing in the middle?
 
12:09 PM
@Sterno Yeah
 
I can't believe you died there. YOU MUST BE THE WORST AT EVERYTHING EVER
I never die in games.
I'm pro much
I don't think I'm much farther than you.
I've seen two bosses but haven't killed either.
 
I have yet to come cross a boss.
 
@Sterno LIES
 
My first death which resulted in losing souls echoes was when I got stuck behind a bag got killed.
I'm still not sure if I was glitched an stuck on the bag, or fi I was just dumb.
 
@5pike he's just trying to help others! And get them sweet internet points at the same time
 
12:15 PM
APPLE RAGE LEVELS INCREASING
 
@KevinvanderVelden Well, that's mighty nice of @Sterno. Didn't think the old man was that kind.
 
@Wipqozn I vote dumb
 
WHY DOESN'T THE VIEW RESIZE WHEN I TELL IT TO RESIZE
 
@Sterno You would, grandpa
I really do hope @SkyDrift grows up to be a Lifehacks.SE mod. It will be the perfect revenge for you making me have fun.
@fredley Because Apple
 
WHY WON'T THE SCROLLVIEW SCROLL
IT'S CONTENTS ARE BIGGER THAN IT, IT SHOULD SCROLL
HOW DOES THIS NOT WORK
 
12:24 PM
NO SCROLLING IS FOR THE IMPERFECT. APPLE DEMANDS PERFECTION, IT SHALL NOT SCROLL
 
HAVE SET CONTENT SIZE BOTH PROGRAMMATICALLY AND IN INTERFACE BUILDER
 
@fredley because scrollviews are big fat lies
 
VIEW STILL REFUSES TO SCROLL
WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
I NEED THIS TO SCROLL, BECAUSE OTHERWISE THE KEYBOARD WILL HIDE INPUTS WHEN IT SHOWS
HOW CAN IT BE THIS DUMB
 
android or ios?
 
ios
Android handles scrolling the viewport so that the text entry field is visible for you
 
12:30 PM
@fredley I remember the rage I had with scrollviews and ios. it was horrible.
 
ios does not
@Arperum HOW IS THIS SO HARD
WTF IS GOING ON
I set some constraints on the scrollview, to make sure it's top and bottom were aligned with the top and bottom of the view, now it doesn't show at all - blank screen
wtf
 
@Arperum Did it work?
 
@fredley I think I found some crazy weird way involving multiple views and scrollviews and other weird things. It's been two years since that happened though.
 
APPLE RAGE LEVELS INCREASING
HOW ABOUT MAINTAINING RELATIVE POSITIONS OF THINGS WHEN I MOVE THEM INSIDE ANOTHER VIEW
RATHER THAN CLUSTERING THEM ALL ON TOP OF EACH OTHER
 
12:37 PM
@fredley Rage overflow?
 
THAT WOULD BE GRAND
 
@fredley OH GOD NO. THE MEMORIES.

:(
 
Does this mean I can send the gift to someone else?
 
@Wipqozn I think you a word
 
12:43 PM
> My apologies but there won't be a dev update this week as I'm buried in the Mac beta and PowerPlay preperation.
uuuuuuugggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh
 
WHY HAS THE FONT FOR THAT LABEL CHANGED TO SOME WEIRD FONT
I ASKED FOR SYSTEM: BLACK, NOT WEIRD OUTLINE SERIF
 
@OrigamiRobot You should probably delete your account in protest.
@Sterno: I've decided who should get the @fredley copy of Bad Rats.
 
@fredley never tough the fonts, things die when you do.
 
THE TRICK THAT WORKED FOR THE FIRST SCROLLVIEW DOES NOT WORK FOR THE SECOND
APPLE RAGE LEVELS INCREASING
 
@fredley YUP. WELCOME TO APPLE.
 
12:49 PM
@OrigamiRobot that's fine with me.
 
I hope the newsletter has some info on PowerPlay
I hope the newsletter is still coming out today.
 
APPLE RAGE LEVELS APPROACHING CRITICAL
 
@Sterno I'm kinda curious what you decided to black out.
WHY IS IT NOT WEEKEND YET.
 
@Arperum Only 1 hour and 37 minutes to go...
 
12:53 PM
i feel like this is most of us today.
 
@5pike Lies. 2 hours and 37 minutes.
 
@Rapitor Except the CRT and shark.
@Arperum Oh, you poor sod.
 
@5pike lies 3h 30m
 
@5pike I've grown up to be more into hitting than biting when angry. I got over the biting.
@Serverfrog Wait? you stop at 17:25?
 
@Arperum 18:30 gmt+1
;)
 
12:55 PM
On a Friday? That's rough.
 
@Serverfrog That is horrifying.
 
thats normal ._.
 
@Serverfrog 4 hours 45 minutes
 
@Serverfrog When do you start your workday?
 
12:56 PM
@Serverfrog ALso: that would be 4:34 hours left.
 
@Wipqozn I'm not sure if he regifted it, or bought a new one.
@Arperum His email
 
@5pike 10:00 gmt +1
 
@Serverfrog I see.
 
@Sterno What a monster Well, I was just going to suggest sending it back to him again, and then blocking him on steam so he can't send it back.
 
@Arperum you are.. right...
DAMN >-<
 
12:57 PM
@fredley So close. I clicked it, but realized what it was as I did so, and closed the tab before it loaded
 
@SaintWacko I can't believe you clicked a link on a friday.
 
@Wipqozn I know, I wasn't thinking
 
If someone tries to send me Bad Rats, I just wont accept the gift so it's stuck in both our inboxes forever.
 
@OrigamiRobot But then you'll never get to experience the joy that is Bad Rats.
 
@OrigamiRobot No one wants to send you Bad Rats
 
1:04 PM
so although the view did appear, viewDidAppear did not fire. What. The. Fuck.
 
@Sterno That's a completely valid blackout thing.
 
No wait, it did.
 
@fredley STOP TALKING. YOU ARE GIVING ME NIGHTMARES.
@fredley But whatever you did should have been done in some other method?
 
- (void)viewDidAppear:(BOOL)animated{
    CGSize scrollContentSize = CGSizeMake(320, 9200);
    self.addressScrollView.contentSize = scrollContentSize;
}
- (IBAction)info:(id)sender {
    NSLog([NSString stringWithFormat:@"%f, %f", self.addressScrollView.contentSize.height, self.addressScrollView.contentSize.width ]);

}
> 0.0, 0.0
WHAT THE FUCK
 
@Sterno Mission Accomplished
@Wipqozn I watched you play it. That's joy enough
 
1:07 PM
There are other methods you can implement, there are some points in the rendering pipeline that fuck things up.
 
I think I need to read the new, upcoming Avengers story line. Miles Morales, Kamala Khan, lady Thor (which I think I'm going to start reading), all sounds pretty good.

Q: UIScrollview: What is setting the contentSize back to 0?

Tom MedleyI have a UIScrollView, and in viewDidAppear I set the contentSize: - (void)viewDidAppear:(BOOL)animated{ CGSize scrollContentSize = CGSizeMake(320, 9200); self.scrollView.contentSize = scrollContentSize; } This code is definitely running. However, the view doesn't scroll. I wired up a...

I like the uiscrollview has a tag
like hate
 
@fredley You are basically having the same problem I had two years ago, but I didn't find a solution, but worked around it somehow (can't check because no access to that code)
 
@Arperum [self performSelector:@selector(setScroll) withObject:nil afterDelay:1.0f];
That's fixed it
But it's the stupidest hack I ever wrote
 
@fredley I... what.
 
1:20 PM
@fredley if it works, it ain't stupid
 
@Rapitor I'd beg to differ. Things might work, but that doesn't mean they're not kludges.
I had to write one last week that I'm not proud of.
 
possibly NSFW
(I mean, look at the title.)
 
Also, good morning, Bridge
 
@Frank Good something ;) .. and you came with that in the same moment i found this chat.stackexchange.com/…
 
@Frank Morning
 
1:25 PM
@Serverfrog Yeah, that's me.
 
1:35 PM
@Arperum #lifehacks
 
@Serverfrog We can track when he wakes up every morning with that
 
@PrivatePansy No, you can track when I get to work. Or, on the weekends, when I first sit down at my computer.
 
It seems pretty consistent
 
@fredley #applehacks sounds more like it.
 
1:50 PM
@PrivatePansy That is asking for people to press buttons. I'm secretly hoping it is linked to some self-destruct mechanism.
 
Bridge, I must question my life choices.
I am attempting to use regex with Excel's find and replace.

Q: Minecraft - windows keyboard corrdinates help

TeranceToppaltyHi im 12 but im mature for my age I have a windows keyboard where the Fn Key is replaced by the windows sign how di I get corrdinates up please?

 
@Lazers Ah, damn.
 
Okay, I need someone to explain rebasing to me.
I don't think I'm understanding it properly.
If I rebase my current branch (A) onto another (B), it takes all the changes/revisions made on that other branch (B) and applies to my current branch (A)?
 
2:05 PM
@Frank I didn't even know Excel had that capability
I use it all the time in Notepad++, though
It's really powerful
 
I am here to ride bike
 
Whereas merge takes all the changes/revisions I've made on my current branch (A) and applies them to the other branch (B)?
@GnomeSlice -1 for functional sentence.
 
@Yuuki It rewinds A to the point it and B are in the same state. It then plays forward commits from both A and B in the order they occurred.
Merging B into A takes all the commits in B and applies them to A as if they happened afterwards.
Rebase does everything in order
I think
 
@fredley Ah...
 
I am not by any means a git expert, but this is my understanding.
 
2:08 PM
That makes sense as to why it's a separate command. Otherwise, you could just checkout B and merge into A.
 
I am owning cookies today and Ive been sneaking chicks lot chips all morning and now I feel kind of sock

@fredley You know I don't trust shortened links from you or @Sterno, right?
 
2:10 PM
It's a dupe, anyways, so I guess it needs to just be deleted.
@SaintWacko It does. Sorta.
Mostly, I just need it to delete leading zeroes.
Because there's no way I'm doing it manually for 600+ rows.
 
Did I join the stack overflow room by accident
 
@GnomeSlice I 'unno, did you?
 
Feels like it
 
eps file from newer version of Illustrator: Illustrator refuses to open. Can still import into Photoshop. Trollololo.
 
Can I schedule events for this room without being a room owner?
 
2:13 PM
 
> The more you tighten your grip, the more star systems slip through your fingers.
> The more we tighten our grip, the more systems will be firmly held in our massive space hand.
 
WTF @fredley eps isn't even an adobe format
Try it as PDF
 
@StackExchange @fredley Ah, I was just wondering since I figured that'd be a nice way to notify people when we're about to start Movie Night rather than constantly mentioning it in chat.
Haven't decided on a date yet (since we haven't decided on a movie) though.
 
Have I told you guys how good Dads In Space is
 
Hmmm. Too many room owners.
 
2:15 PM
Have I told you guys how good Space Janitors is
 
What do.
 
@fredley Remove @Wipqozn
 
@Powerlord Not currently room owner
 
Add me
 
2:16 PM
I've been here for like four years
 
@fredley Remove all blue names since they don't need room ownership.
 
Quick question: is there any particular reason why @Wipqozn, @KevinvanderVelden, and @Unionhawk have explicit write access?
 
Woo, I had to take my house apart for a utilities guy XD
 
@Yuuki No idea.
 
Also when you do that and I'm on mobile it force refreshes and I have to start typing again
 
2:17 PM
@Yuuki Something to do with removing room owners, I think.
 
@GnomeSlice I am aware.
 
@GnomeSlice Happens on not mobile too
 
@Wipqozn If you do it wrong, that can happen.
 
It's terrible
 
2:18 PM
> Nintendo’s physical DLC: Supply-limited toy needed for new gameplay puzzles
 
(aka they are doing stuff with water and didn't tell me WHERE the hookups and shutoff were I had to pull my house apart, which was entertaining, because no one told me where the water stuff was. Turns out it is behind the jankiest little section of "wall" (panelling held there by a little s hook) which meant I had to empty my pantry and move it)
 
Stop
 
I wonder why this isn't rate limited
 
Yeah, Nintendo, don't do that.
 
2:18 PM
@Powerlord amiibo?
 
@Powerlord THe Toad amiibo?
 
@Rapitor Yup.
 
Probably because you're a mod
 
@GnomeSlice Nope. Mods are rate limited the same as everyone else.
 
@fredley Also probably because it's the weirdest way to annoy someone, not to mention really visible.
 
2:18 PM
@AshleyNunn and also yup
 
Weird
 
@Yuuki weirdest most entertaining
 
@fredley The two aren't mutually exclusive.

Q: How do I deal with traps in Pillars of Eternity?

Mason WheelerIn the first dungeon, I've come across an area full of traps that will kill me if I step on them, and it's problematic in many different ways. My characters detect the traps, but if I click beyond the area, they'll happily walk directly over the trapped floor, which really should be considered ...

Q: Do I get anything for my friends slipping on poop?

Ashley NunnIf Poopy the Bird poops on the ground and I don't pick it up, my friends will slip on it and fall. Does that do anything? I know if I poop on their heads I get money, but what about if I make them slip on it?

 
2:19 PM
As my Wild Wasteland run will attest.
 
@GnomeSlice We... didn't need to know that.
 
@GnomeSlice wut
 
Our work SCM for machine updates is SOOOOO awesome. Was supposed to install updates automatically last night. Come in this morning and it asks me when I want to install them.
 
@GnomeSlice I assume that your phone is autocorrecting "work" and now I'm really concerned about what you do at your job.
 
i need a new incremental.
 
2:22 PM
@Rapitor Did you play the bee one?
 
@Rapitor Try Stack Exchange!
@fredley There's a bee one?
 
@fredley maybe?
 
Is that the beekeeping mod thing in Minecraft?
 
@Yuuki No judging!
 
2:22 PM
Because that feels like an incremental.
 
yeah i played swarmism
 
@OrigamiRobot I'd have been just as worried if he said "back to <the other thing>".
 
Clearly I should make an incremental and put ads up the wazoo in it. The kind that adblock doesn't catch.
 
Wait... that sounds suspiciously like work.
 
2:24 PM
Although I don't think that would be as easily autocorrected, so I think think I might actually be more worried.
 
So, anyway, wtf is up with AngularJS? I'm just wondering why anyone would want to move the entire MVC stack to the browser instead of just using AJAX calls in a normal MVC stack.
 
@Yuuki That's not the kind of judging I meant.
 
@Powerlord Spend less money on servers by making the browser do all the hard work?
Specifically: templating
 
@fredley And kill usability on slow computers and mobile devices? Sounds like a terrible idea to me.
 
@Powerlord Meh. I'm not a fan of that method at all (partly for this reason), but I guess that's a reasonable tradeoff for some people
 
2:30 PM
@fredley no kong
 
@fredley unity...kong...and then linux at work
 
@Powerlord There are quite some efforts to speed up those frameworks, e.g. React with the virtual DOM. The performace impact will likely get smaller in the future
 
@MadScientist Yes, well it's appropriately telling that Google doesn't use AngularJS in its own stuff and the next version is apparently a complete rewrite.
"Complete rewrite" as in "code written for the old version won't work on the new version"
 
@Serverfrog Play that game of trying to get it to work
 
There. Bypassed the requirement for using regex.
 
2:37 PM
(That's not a RB link by the way)
 
@fredley Yay for being a lieing asshat.
 
@Arperum Yup.
"Hey, our stuff doesn't kill people! But you want me to drink it? Ehhhhhhh...."
 
@fredley it could just taste really really really bad
 
@Rapitor And that's fine; it's herbicide, after all.
 
@fredley While that statement is all kinds of dumb, the whole potentionally carcinogenic WHO stuff is just stupid. Mobile phones are in the same category, it doesn't really mean anything
 
2:46 PM
But if the next statement that comes out of his mouth is, "I'm not stupid", it has a rather strong implication that it does bad things to you.
 
Toxicity is always concentration-dependent. The stuff is reportedly very safe in the concentrations that actually get onto the food. That doesn't mean you can safely drink a whole bottle, which is many orders of magnitude more
 
@MadScientist Which makes sense.
The guy making the statement that it's safe to drink, refusing to drink it, though, is hypocritical to the extreme.

Q: Some worker units don't "complete" assignments other than farms

Mike RoseA large percentage of workers don't succeed in completing any projects other than farms. Software problem?

 
The reported LD50 for glyphosate is higher than for table salt at around 5g/kg for rats. Drinking a whole bottle would still be really stupid
 
@MadScientist Saying you can drink a bottle of it and be perfectly fine is also stupid
 
2:55 PM
What I'm wondering is just how he thought that would go.
If you tell people that your product is perfectly safe to drink, eventually they're going to ask you to drink it.
 
@fredley And showing the hypocrisy of the person making the statement makes perfect sense. I wonder if he's going to have some repercussions for his job.
He should, because that was a staggeringly stupid statement to make.
 
@Frank It wouldn't be stupid if he was willing to actually back it up.
 
@Yuuki That's fair.
 
But if he made that statement knowing that he wouldn't ever drink it if asked, then yes it's amazingly stupid.
 
HI CHAT.
 
2:57 PM
.TAHC IH
 
@Frank The way he handled it was just bad too. "I'm not stupid." "I'm not an idiot."
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I still don't understand the hate of comic sans at all. is it professional? no. but there's nothing wrong with it
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Is the biggest reason why people hate Comic Sans and Papyrus just that people use them a lot?
 
@Yuuki that is definitely a major reason.
 
3:01 PM
@Rapitor Like any other font, it has contexts in which it is used best and contexts in which it is inappropriate. It just so happens that it's one of the more common fonts to be used inappropriately.
 
What context is appropriate for Papyrus?
Seriously?
Other than a 10 year old's project on Ancient Egypt
 
> 1) For when you want to be grossly inaccurate about Egyptians
2) For when you want to annoy the f--k out of typography geeks
I know why people hate Comic Sans (and I personally believe that a large part of it is because it's fashionable to hate it), but I'm not exactly sure on why people hate Papyrus.

Q: Is there any way to brighten up maps?

fredleyI've already set my gamma up to the highest setting, but on my screen (glossy), the maps are so dark as to be almost unviewable - all I can see are the markers, and sometimes brighter areas or tracks. Is there a way to make maps more legible?

 
Thinking about picking up a different scripting language once I'm done with this Python project. Any suggestions?

Q: What do the red and yellow areas for AoE spells mean?

Mad ScientistWhen casting a spell with an area of effect, the targeting cursor is a red and a larger yellow circle. What exactly do these two different circles mean? Is the effect weaker in the yellow circle?

 
3:30 PM
@Arperum How hard can it be™
mysqldump > dumpdata
mysql < mydumpfile
 
@fredley ohhh no.. have fun if you do it so. Encoding Hell ;)
 
@Serverfrog I'm running into encoding issues between UTF8 and UTF8. Somehow.
 
@Arperum wait.. i know this...
have you tried this? makandracards.com/makandra/…
 
@Serverfrog inb4d
 
3:34 PM
 
I feel like a complete utter moron now, but I'm not used to command line sqlaccess. where do I go to do these commands? (All I have is navicat, which is some stupid mysql accessing UI thing.
 
I love SMBC
 
(also, working from a windows PC, with no remote access to the server with the DB (aside from ftp and a DB user/pass combo.)
According to the internet that would be not enough
> If you have shell or telnet access to your web server, you can backup your MySQL data by using the mysqldump command.
I do not have said access.
 
@Wipqozn Did he have a kid sometime recently?
I'm assuming that what the small face in the bottom-left corner is.

This application, or a library it uses, is using an invalid context and is thereby contributing to an overall degradation of system stability and reliability. This notice is a courtesy: please fix this problem. It will become a fatal error in an upcoming update.
Jees alright!
 
Wee! I just got fired!
 
@Arperum The product page for Navicat suggests there's some data transfer dialog that lets you select objects in the source db to transfer to some other db.
 
@Frank Oh dear.
 
/terminated/whatever you call it when your department gets outsourced.
 
Let's go with "Corporately Reappropriated"
It conveys the right sense of business-level messed-up that's involved here, I think.
 
3:43 PM
@Yuuki Yeah. not sure when. think it's been a while.
 
@Frank shit dude that sucks.
 
@Rapitor It's not bad; I'm getting an offer from the company it was outsourced to.
I'm effectively doing the same job, I'm just doing it somewhere else, and getting paid by a different company.
 
@Frank Ah, you would be moving?
If you were to take the job, that is.
 
@Yuuki Still in the same city.
 
@Frank still pretty frustrating, i'm guessing
 
3:45 PM
So, effectively, I've just job jumped somewhere else.
With hopefully a substantial raise.
 
@TimStone That one fails at some random point without a usefull error message. (I do get a message saying that it failed though)
 
Ah, that's dumb
 
@TimStone Exactly.
 
@Rapitor Well, he hated his old job soooooooo probably not , haha
Honestly, @Frank, I'm going to say <REDACTED> on this case.
Because that place can only be better than where you were.
 
@Wipqozn Congratulate me when I get the offer.
Because I won't take anything less than a 10% raise.
 
3:49 PM
@Frank oh, thought you already did.
 
It's currently informal.
No formal offer has been made yet.
I know it's coming, though.
 
Well here's hoping it's a 15% raise
 
I hope it's a 20% raise, just to out-do @Wipqozn.
 
@TimStone Man, you suck. YOU SUCK MAN! WHY YOU GOTTA BE THAT WAY!!!!!????11111QUESTIONMARK
 
Maybe it'll be like a Steam sale of raises and you'll get 80%.
 
3:52 PM
@Yuuki It could; actually.
 
@Yuuki Oh that would rock
 
My predecessor actually got a 60% raise when she accepted a position elsewhere.
 
@Frank Yeah, stuff like that is no unheard of in the world of devs.
Experienced devs are an invaluable access to your company.
 
@Wipqozn For me, personally, I've come to expect, and tend to demand, five digit annual raises.
 
Wooo! got access through plesk(webadminpanel). 1 minute later: database copied.
 
3:53 PM
Yikes.
I am never going to make money like that.
goes back to applying for minimum wage stuff
 
@AshleyNunn :(
Sorry.
 
@Frank Not your fault my life sucks right now.
You didn't end my contract early or make me need brain surgery.
 
We should make that Harvest Moon/Monster Hunter game, make tons of money, and hire @AshleyNunn.
 
@AshleyNunn You will if I start making extra tons of money and you become my "Remember to do the thing" person!
 
It's just hard to hear sometimes.
@TimStone As long as I get that sharp stick.
 
3:54 PM
A sharp stick and cash money!
The best of all worlds.
 
What more could a girl want?
 
I'll do it if you pay me in sharp sticks
 
@AshleyNunn Cupcakes?
@OrigamiRobot I wish I got paid in sharp sticks...
 
@Yuuki I can always make those! (especially because I found a box of cake mix when I had to move my ENTIRE pantry this morning)
The fact that the show 2 Broke Girls is my accompaniment to my job search this morning is cracking me up. Gotta make my own fun!
