@Hakase saw them just now, good job
and you can buy it here
@JNat did you tell them to take the scenice route on delivering your ff14?
why couldn't you do a digital download btw?
$119 i would say is a good price for an adjustable bench for a laptop along with fans
@Memor-X =O
@ton.yeung no, it was out of stock, and had to be postponed
will arrive on Tuesday
according to the tracking thingy
12:09 AM
@Memor-X Hmmm i wonder if you could use it as a fan for when you're sleeping
@ton.yeung I just preferred to have a physical copy
for no reason in particular
@Frosteeze i'd say you could considering the position the laptop can be when you use it laying down but it would depend how powerful of fans they are
@JNat just curious, not judging
@Memor-X my gf thinks her 4kg alienware would fall on her
@ton.yeung yeah, no problem
I'm judging. "I sentence you to have good taste in gaming." :P
12:11 AM
@JNat i lose my shit all over the place, so yea, physical copy is no good for me
@ton.yeung it says it can hold up to 60kg but i can't see how they would test a 60kg laptop on it for use when laying down as they have shown in the images
@Hakase I did some experimentation with the thumbnail quality stuff. -quality 100 fixes all the issues I could find, at the cost of approximately doubling the average thumbnail size. -quality 90 fixed all the ones in my sample without really changing the sizes appreciably, but there are other images that it does worse than the adaptive quality default. Converting to png and then back to jpg works as well and seems to produce the smallest files, at the cost of requiring extra work.
So I guess the question is, is this a big enough issue to be worth doubling the average thumbnail file size. They're still not terribly large (most are around 100kB or smaller) but I don't know if that's acceptable to fix relatively rare issues.
hm... Aldnoah Zero looks interesting
but ugh... it could be better
12:28 AM
@Abyx How far are you into it?
3rd series
I take it you mean 3rd episode. It gets better, but 2nd cour just started so I can't really pass judgement on the series until that's finished
episode, yeah
1:24 AM
@Memor-X yes, but not from DLC. She is default chara on sao HF, she also have trophy for her CG.
Q: Who are all the characters Tomoko imagines?

Memor-XIn episode 7, When Tomoko is in line to see the otome Voice Actor from the game she got the bonus ticket to get a custom recordingr she rethinks what line she wanted after hearing the girl infront of her request the line "i want to ruin you" Tomoko has a montage of different characters from diff...

Q: Is Hidan Still Allive?

SarenyaFrom what I recall Hidan head was buried deep inside a hole in the konoha forbidden jungle. Does it mean that Hidan is still alive after all this year. Is it possible for someone to rescue him and bring him back if he is still alive?

@SeptianPrimadewa ok, so more reason for me not to start playing until i watch Season 2. i remember a GGO DLC Pack that was released a while back but i haven't got it so i don't want to spoil any GGO characters just yet
1:57 AM
Q: I can't remember the name of a manga I read -Please help

William Wolffso I am having a tough time trying to remember the name of this manga. It had three high school friends and they woke up in an alternate reality where people play games to survive. The games difficulty is determined by a something and can determine the difficulty by a deck of cards. The first gam...

@Sakamoto No clue, but it sounds strictly worse than NGNL by that description.
2:15 AM
in Hakuouki, the place where the Shinsengumi normally go to drink, what are they called? i get the word brothel in my head but i don't think that's right
A: How does the 3D maneuver gear work?

JimScience and stuff. Sooooooooooo yea.

Brilliance at its finest.
@Eric even an answer of "it's gear that maneuvers in 3d" has more effort that that
2:49 AM
Q: Trying to remember an anime!

Luis CastilloSo about 5 years ago I saw an anime that was really good, I can't seem to remember the name of it... It was about some guy who lived with his sister, and he would always go to this park, and sit by a tree in the middle of it, one day he went through the tree and was sent into another realm, he me...

3:25 AM
Q: What anime is in this video?

Anonymous12972http://youtu.be/BtwMRjsUe3I Just as the title says, which anime is this?

4:18 AM
Q: please identify this anime character :)

Josh i saw her in a facebook post, i've tried google search but no luck whatsoever. Whoever can identify the character/anime will have my sincere gratitude. sorry for my bad english.

how did these guys find our site? honestly...
@OshinoShinobu what do you mean?
4:30 AM
@Memor-X I always thought they need to at least know SO to get here
but these guy just ask some random video or picture
@OshinoShinobu Eh anime SE sometimes show up on google searches when you're trying to find something anime related
@OshinoShinobu they don't have to know at least Stack Overflow to know of this place. it's just more likely than not. you have to remember that Stack Overflow is programming but not otakus are programmers. they could have came from
also, funny enough this image
we're ranked no. 4 for anime identification by google
@Memor-X oh wow we really shows up at google
@OshinoShinobu yeh, someones with obscure id requests with images you do a reverse image search you just get us again
and the fact we also edit id request titles for Search Engine Optimization
so basically we're the one who invite them here
4:39 AM
@OshinoShinobu yep, as you can see in the image "Anime & Manga Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for anime and ... Need help identifying a manga/manwa (School, supernatural, fighting, aikido, ...)"
though who reads that, the fact we show up is an open invitation
Q: Manga Identification Help

Kevin HyunFirst off I'd like to apologize because I don't remember a whole lot about the manga. But these are the details of the manga I do remember: 1.Main character is a male who seeks for power and revenge towards something. 2.Main character has a 'soul weapon' which is unique and is a shield instead...

@Memor-X That text is, I believe, taken from one of the question titles. Generic question titles cause problems like that.
@Sakamoto This is Absolute Duo probably
@LoganM the second part i assume it is, after all, Akido to my knowledge is a fighting style, not a genre. the real question is, do we fix it?
Aikido is a martial art, not a fighting style.
@LoganM to some people, martial arts is still fighting.
4:51 AM
Anyway, the right thing to do is, as usual, to replace generic titles with more specific ones. That's possible for almost any good ID request. If it isn't, the question is probably not very good.
Lolis are the best!
but there are so many of them :(
there she is
Lolis are the best!
@mirroroftruth haru, is that you?
4:54 AM
*takes off HoiHoi-san's bow and fixes up a new clean one for her*
@OshinoShinobu yes , Spring is near
@Sakamoto Missed this one, but it's an original character, see pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=44493640
@LoganM you going to answer?
@Memor-X I'd rather not if other people want to.
I'm the last person who needs to get rep off these questions.
If no one else wants to I'll do it though.
well we can always count on Jon Lin
he already answer it
5:05 AM
@OshinoShinobu i thought you post after Jon Lin answer :)
5:21 AM
What's with this sudden burst of id requests?
@GaoWeiwei it's monday
@Memor-X Isn't Monday work day? People surf this site and ask questions at work?
@GaoWeiwei yep that's what i do. they do it when checking the emails they may or may not have gotten during the weekened
or this could have been a recent dump up
53 mins ago, by Memor-X
user image
who know? the human mind is a scary and unimaginable thing considering what it has invented
87 is like a magic number, a number Anime & Manga SE approaches when t->infinity.
5:34 AM
@GaoWeiwei if your talking about the answer % remember that's been rounded, it's probably got a few decimal places behind it and could actually be 86.23%
@Memor-X I believe it's more around 87% because a few weeks (or months) ago, it was 88% for a few days.
@GaoWeiwei *lights fire under @GaoWeiwei 's feet for the burn, fire magically jumps under @Memor-X 's feet*
5:57 AM
@mirroroftruth I never answer id-req unless I know the title, at least read or watched a little bit
woooo, a new Fire Emblem is going to be coming out.
@GaoWeiwei You can get more precise data from the html of stackexchange.com/sites#traffic. We've been dropping slowly for a while. Right now we're at 87.061. Our high point recently was December 30th at 87.541
@Memor-X With dialogue choices and stuff!
To get back to 87.5%, we'd need to answer 20 more unanswered questions.
(those stats are a bit cached.)
@LoganM Sorry, but the link redirects to stackexchange.com/sites and I don't see more precise stats.
6:05 AM
@GaoWeiwei look at the source.
Right click > view source > ctrl+f search "anime" > scroll down until you see the "hidden" section.
@Memor-X still hoping regular new 3DS for NA or asia region
why why why
Alternatively, just visit codemanteau.com/stacker/?siteId=225, which scrapes that data daily.
@LoganM can't find the "hidden"
It's there. Try searching for <input type="hidden" name="name" value="Anime &amp; Manga" />
Strange, searched "hidden" and only 3 results showed up, and it's none of those. The codemanteau link does work, however.
6:16 AM
You should see the same text as this pastebin paste: pastebin.com/raw.php?i=yXrvfs9u
Oh you might be using grid view. Which is worthless, you need to change to list view.
OK now I see it. Still why don't they make it show up by hover like they do with other stats?
Don't know
It isn't really statistically significant to show that many decimal places, but I'd like it if they default showed one more.
We're not an especially large site, but even here, a 1% change in that number is a really big amount (around 40 net questions getting answered). On bigger sites, it almost never changes very much.
So should we have another one of those events where we try to get all the unanswered ones answered?
Did it do very much last time?
I don't remember.
@Frosteeze Like a hackathon?
6:24 AM
I don't know how effective it was, but I thought it did increased the percentage for a short while
@GaoWeiwei No. It was like simple things such as upvoting answers that were good that had 0 points and other stuff I can't remember
Q: Help us answer these unanswered questions! Take #2!

Toshinou KyoukoThe last 'unanswered question' day we had was successful enough, but now that we have an even bigger userbase and lots of time to grow our % Answered rate has dropped to 87%. I think that we can bump this back up with a little bit of effort. Here are some things we could look out for: We have ...

that one?
Yeah that one
I didn't really do anything for that one.
I did do the first one though. The idea of the first event we had was that everyone in chat would pick one or two, research those, and write an answer.
A lot of the unanswered questions are technically answerable, and maybe not even especially hard, but require some effort and time. We cleared through a bunch of those questions that time.
But we only had around 100 total unanswered questions back then, so it was easier to do that kind of thing.
That sounds like fun
It's harder with over 500 questions though
6:31 AM
some question already has correct answer but not accepted yet.
@SeptianPrimadewa Acceptance doesn't matter for the statistic
it just needs to be upvoted and have a score of one or more
So 500 might not be hard, just upvote or close for many of them.
Yes, if you notice a good answer with 0 votes, upvote it.
@SeptianPrimadewa accepting answer is solely depend on the user , we can't do anything but ask them
6:33 AM
But don't do it just to move the question to the answered category. If the answer isn't any good, it should still be marked as unanswered.
oh, seem query on meta not run well
You okay there? :P
6:35 AM
break the silence
Bad apple?
why bad apple
look delicious

Flan is kinda scary tho

@OshinoShinobu is that honey topping
6:44 AM
@mirroroftruth caramel
oh caramel, i thought honey
honey, sugar, caramel, whatever float your boat
!!wiki Flan
Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savoury filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert. British savoury flans may have diverged from the Spanish and French custard flans (also known as crème caramel) in the Middle Ages. == Etymology == The English word "flan", and the earlier forms "flaune" and "flawn", come from the Old French flaon (modern French flan), in turn from the early Medieval Latin fladōn-em, derived from the Old High German flado, a sort of flat cake, probably from an Indo...
it is not a pudding?
6:48 AM
!!wiki pudding
Pudding is usually a dessert, but it can also be a savory dish. The word pudding is believed to come from the French boudin, originally from the Latin botellus, meaning "small sausage", referring to encased meats used in Medieval European puddings. == Terminology == In the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth countries, pudding can be used to describe both sweet and savory dishes. However, unless qualified, the term in everyday usage typically denotes a dessert; in the UK, "pudding" is used as synonym for a dessert course. Dessert puddings are rich, fairly homogeneous starch- or dairy-based desserts...

@OshinoShinobu I posted it :)
damn what did they do to it, it bend all over the place :(
@OshinoShinobu Yeah, but the parts arrived intact
Which is what's important
yea glad to see that, after I saw your gift I kept thinking maybe I should do the same. padded with some newspaper or something
sorry about that
this is my first time sending anything
@OshinoShinobu Actually I haven't padded my gift with anything
They did that on their own, and since you and I bought from the same place, I'm very surprised that they haven't done it in your case
oh I thought it was you
well it means my post office is not better than yours
8:33 AM
Wait, did you buy and ship it yourself?
You bought online and told them to ship to me?
buy it myself, kinda hard to find some online gift here
I can't trust them
I see
and tbh I never bought anything related to anime before. Took me few day to find some good shop.
there are few I know buy they only sell some second hand figurin
I'm pretty excited to participate again. :)
I'm gonna find some nice gift for sure
^ like this one
8:58 AM
Q: Manga about a man creating stars...?

user11262I can't remember the title! But what I do remember is that it was a BL manga about a workaholic man who works in a company that creates stars. In the process of creating a star, he drops it and starts crying over it. And suddenly a human is born from it. The star child was given a star name. The...

@OshinoShinobu D: what happen
@SakuraiTomoki Looks like there is no such command.
9:03 AM
@ToshinouKyouko Could you rephrase your request?
9:20 AM
here's moar update spring animu:
@MadaraUchiha was that banana for scale :D
@mirroroftruth :D
"Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?" What a name!
@GaoWeiwei That's nothing
> Meet little girl in dark forest. Kill her pet. Take her money. Get phone number
~ Pokemon.
I have to think that the only reasonable answer is "yes, it is"
unless you mean 'pick up and rescue'
9:31 AM
@MadaraUchiha waaaaat?
@GaoWeiwei You've never played Pokemon before?
and it's from pokemon?
@MadaraUchiha nope, only a bit of anime
@GaoWeiwei In Pokemon you wonder around the world, you can meet trainers everywhere and battle them
After you win you get money, and in some games, an optional phone number.
@MadaraUchiha What for? Can you call them to help you?
you can call them if you want to beat up her pet again
and take more money
9:34 AM
it's like bullying, so sad~
More often than not, they call you and ask you to beat their pet again and take money
It's quite hilarious
pokemon needs some therapists
Especially since you're post-league, all of your pokemon are 80+, and they still have that level 12 pidgey they wanted to evolve.
9:35 AM
didn't know pokemon was that messed up
What always cracks me up is getting challenged by an old man, specifically saying "I spent all of my life training this <whatever>", and about 30 minutes later you meet up with a kid that's younger than you, and he goes "I got this <whatever> as a gift from my dad", and he's 10 times stronger XD
@MadaraUchiha i still remember those thing
Maid Café plays Pokemon

Q: Where is Aizen?

Sakurai TomokiWhere is Aizen Sousuke after the Quincy wreak havoc in Seireitei? Last time mentioned he was meeting the Quicy king, Ywach. And Ywach mentioned during that short meeting, Aizen used his power on him. Does this means Aizen has escaped? Did Ywach set him loose?

@Hakase 10:37 B-)
