Q: Red Dwarf: Episode in which Holly Offers to Make a Woman?

releseabeSemi-Spoiler since I am revealing something very funny. I remember the lines sort of but can't find a clip, no idea of episode or season: The computer asks Lister something to the effect, "How would you like me to create a woman, completely indistinguishable in every respect from the real thing?"...

galacticninjaIn the opening sequence of X-Men '97, Season 1, Episode 5, "Remember It", there's a brief clip of Gambit and Nightcrawler wielding swords and fighting helmeted, armored foes with an arena-like building in the background. This particular scene doesn’t make an appearance within the episode itself. ...

Argh. Now SE has poisoned google results to the point that it's no longer possible to find not-wrong answers to simple questions.
Which is to say that SE has gone from being part of the solution to part of the problem.

DoninhaMy husband, who is French (mentioning in case it's a European film) remembers a film that he says was a zombie movie in black and white and the ending was basically a zombie starving on the floor of a room (maybe a bedroom). I went to the Wikipedia zombie page and read the plot of every film lis...

Q: Need help finding a poem

spira03It was published in a quarterly poetry magazine in the mid-'90s. It was a poem about the coffee rings left behind on a table in a cafe. The coffee stains were compared to the memories of our lifetime. It may have been a hint to fading memories as the coffee stains also faded, but I can't recall f...

A.SteerIn Jurassic Park, Dennis Nedry is killed by a Dilophosaurus in his jeep at the top of a waterfall. At the bottom of the waterfall is a road that goes into a tunnel with a sign for the East Dock. Is the waterfall in the Dilophosaurus paddock or have the Dilophosaurus escaped their paddock?

9:58 PM
@Jenayah I wanted to know how to configure a Spring Boot application to limit the size of JSON requests to under 100kB. (No valid message should be larger than 60kB really.) Every question that asks about it has answers that talk about restricting the size of formdata or multipart-formdata requests instead.
I finally found some non-SE answers that say, basically, Spring don't do that. (Either configure it in the underlying Tomcat/Jetty/whatever instance, or write a filter that checks the request inputstream size.) But no useful content on SE.
(Writing a filter to check the size of the inputstream is stupid, because the webserver has already accepted the entire request, which defeats the purpose.)
I wanted to do it in Spring, not in Tomcat, because the plan is to migrate to Jetty in a few months, and I'd rather not do it twice.

Q: Why did Moldaver massacre the vault residents?

AdamantMoldaver's overriding goal seems to have been to get Lucy's father to give her the code to activate her cold fusion device, and based on the last few episodes, she actually seems to run one of the least sociopathic factions on the surface: as the remnant of Shady Sands, they seem to have a fairly...

It’s set in modern times, I vaguely remember he sneaking out of her room to change shapeshift into a wyvern and fly? There might also have been other shapeshifters too (for s...
