At a rough look through I found out that about 90% of all pgfplotstable-questions are due to me. :()
I suspect that the author will invite me to coffee at some point.

@cis 28 = 90% of 979 :-)

@DavidCarlisle :)

@yo' I tried some overleaf promotion:-) tex.stackexchange.com/questions/564112/…

@DavidCarlisle Thanks :) I'll note this down for our Product team, actually...

7:54 AM
@JosephWright Can you sanity check this, always dangerous to tell people they won't lose work... github.com/learnlatex/learnlatex.github.io/issues/…

@DavidCarlisle Yes looks ok: no rebase so no risks
@DavidCarlisle There's always the reflog anyway, although that's a fallback really

@JosephWright thanks
@JosephWright incidentally I went for putting a comment about the update in all the issues rather than send an email as I didn't have email contacts for everyone.

@DavidCarlisle I'd seen :)

@JosephWright it's OK but doesn't really scale and we didn't have open issues for all translations (I used a closed issue and a PR comment for two of them) we need a better plan going forward but that worked OK for now, and hopefully a public prompt may move some of them on.

@DavidCarlisle Yes: I wonder how other projects handle this
@DavidCarlisle In other news, I've restored the docs for l3backend, so people can see all of the comments about how we worked out the undocumented features of each one

8:04 AM
@JosephWright sounds good

@DavidCarlisle Which reminds me I need to hassle Frank about how to safely activate link breaking in dvips: I've got lots of PostScript but nowhere to use it :(
@DavidCarlisle Yes: the issue turns out to be l3docstrip! (Or rather how we have to set it up for l3backend) - I'll be pleased when everything is merged back together in DocStrip

@JosephWright I thought afterwards a better thing would have been to add that comment to the lesson-06 PR but @ ping all the translators in the comment to notify them rather than duplicating the comment to each translators issue.

@DavidCarlisle Ah yes

Developer: We have a problem.

Manager: Remember, there are no such things as problems, only opportunities.

Developer: Well then, we have a DDoS opportunity.

@DavidCarlisle :)
@DavidCarlisle it just looks a bit strange with the abbreviation behind it.

@samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz nice that ducks can now hug ...

$git commit -m "The Art" [master d5555c1] The Art 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-) @Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz ^ @DavidCarlisle :) @DavidCarlisle "It's the Arts" ;-) @DavidCarlisle hmmm 6:25 PM I'm fascinated with the attention ducks get here. 6:37 PM @LaTeXereXeTaL quack @UlrikeFischer As we humans are struggling with the pandemic, the ducks have to do all the hugging :) 4 @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz ooooh ;-) 6:53 PM The new syntax highlighting on TeX.SE looks really meh, or is this just me who doesn't like it? 3 @UlrikeFischer Here is also one for you: \documentclass{standalone} \usepackage{tikzducks,tikzlings} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \duck[] % \bear[scale=0.7,xshift=1.3cm,back] \node at (0.8,0.6) {\includegraphics[width=1cm]{photo-ulrike}}; \duck[invisible,wing,yscale=-1,scale=0.8,yshift=-1.7cm,xshift=-0.2cm] \duck[invisible,wing,yscale=-1,xscale=-1,scale=0.8,yshift=-1.3cm,xshift=-2.5cm] \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} @Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz ... also has a lot of glitches Is there some easy way to see, in case of an error/traceback during compilation from a Lua file, where the Lua file is being referenced from? At least the current version of LuaTeX that I'm using doesn't obviously give this information. @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz yes, some macros aren't highlighted for no apparent reason. @Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz the zebra striped \\\\\ are also funny Okay this is going to sound rather silly, but here goes. I have been under the (terribly wrong) impression that LuaLaTeX required learning an entirely new language (Lua). It doesn't. It's a LaTeX engine that processes LaTeX. I'm sitting here composing mathematical expressions with unicode characters. I get it now. I'm just sorry it took me so long. 7:00 PM @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz awww @LaTeXereXeTaL Rather the other way round: you can more or less use all normal latex things, but if you happen to know lua, you can do a lot more @PauloCereda :D @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Yes! I completely see that now. @Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz on the other hand, there are languages which were hit much worse than latex. I just read an rmarkdown Q and at first thought the highlighting did not work at all. At closer inspection it is dark blue mixed with black :) 7:34 PM @LaTeXereXeTaL don't encourage them. @DavidCarlisle quack @Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz it doesn't know @ is a letter so any command with @ get half coloured, I assume the protocol is to raise a bug at highlight.js @PauloCereda dinner @DavidCarlisle oh no @DavidCarlisle I'm just watching the ducks. quack 4 @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz ^^^ 7:37 PM @LaTeXereXeTaL ooh @LaTeXereXeTaL s/watching/eating/g @UlrikeFischer ooh @DavidCarlisle you are mean @DavidCarlisle Sounds like \makeatletter is missing :) @UlrikeFischer yeah! @LaTeXereXeTaL Will you throw some bread crumbs? @PauloCereda you got the wrong person Sep 7 '17 at 7:36, by Christian Hupfer @Skillmon: You are mean ;-) @DavidCarlisle ooh we need a list of these mentions 7:38 PM Always. I grew up near a duck pond where my father would take me to feed the ducks and geese. Barbara once told me bread is not good for us ducks :) @PauloCereda Auntie BBC said bread is OK as long as you also eat other things @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz ooh bread and Nutella @PauloCereda That's OK, just don't put it on pizza @PauloCereda no break and duck is OK 7:41 PM @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz ooh Nutella pizza is good @DavidCarlisle oh no May 30 at 17:19, by samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz @PauloCereda Auntie says bread is OK as long as you mix it with other things https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-50087990 @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz see footnote #2 of the TeXplate documentation (texdoc texplate). :) @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz highlight.js seems to have a lot of issues open since they started using it here two latex ones github.com/highlightjs/highlight.js/… @PauloCereda :) one has to use this just for the entertainment value @samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz sounds like the last paragraph of my thesis acknowledgments. :) <markm> c++: the power, elegance and simplicity of a hand grenade [paulo@cambridge ~]$

@DavidCarlisle there might be a correlation with a sudden increase in user numbers :)

@DavidCarlisle there is also a meta question.

8:06 PM
@UlrikeFischer I braved a miktex comment tex.stackexchange.com/questions/564218/…

@DavidCarlisle we just said the same ;-)

@UlrikeFischer yes but I spoke from ignorance

@JosephWright I looked at the iccbased stuff in colorspace. Basically it creates a stream object from an icc, it maps DefaultRGB in the ColorSpace resource to this profile. It doesn't handle outputintents. It is not difficult, but I'm not quite sure where it belongs. From the topic it is color related, but most of the code is l3pdf/pdfresource stuff.

@JosephWright Can I run BibTeX with l3build check? Or should I have a pre-built .bbl` file?
