Oh, it's great stuff. It scans your brain for your favorite stuff and nano particles configure the beverage to become that which you desire the most.

Throws Hissatron a beer
 
6:04 PM
Now if only i can get it to ping the person while throwing it. It's nice to have a bit of a heads up.
 
@JonEricson it is looking better on the site, yes?
@JonEricson I have sent an invite to an astrophysicist friend of mine - he deals with exoplanets amongst other things, also a university professor
he is disturbingly busy, but said he'll drop by when he can
 
@UV-D Some better and others, not so much. The updated version of observing black holes looks pretty good so far. Let's see what answers you get.
 
!!parse $someone
 
@DavidFreitag UV-D
 
I had to close down two more questions that were not likely salvageable at all. Haven't check this morning.
 
6:07 PM
@JonEricson but overall?
 
!!parse 'Something with ' $someone
 
@DavidFreitag 'Something with ' Hissatron

!!compliment
 
Why, David Freitag, (insert compliment number 6 here)
 
!!/compliment
 
Why, David Freitag, (insert compliment number 6 here)
 
@JonEricson looking at the front page of questions as an example, that seems, overall, it has improved hasn't it? meatier with roast veges and potatoes?
 
6:12 PM
lol
 
!!punch JonEricson

naughty Manish
 
@JonEricson IT IS BEER WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED!!
 
@UV-D It's better. But I'd like to see what happens for the rest of the week. No site can survive with all the heavy lifting being done with only a handful of clued in users.
 
6:14 PM
@JonEricson improvement is always a good thing to be part of
 
@JonEricson Actually, that's my concern here, the site reminds me of the evolution of Arduino... Only 5-6 users who really are active.
 
I count 7-10 active users
 
huh, that improved :)
 
just looking at the first 2 pages as an indicator
 
@ManishEarth Especially if many are also active elsewhere. A core of half-a-dozen can work iff they are all dedicated to the site as a labor of love. But it's a very fragile thing.
 
6:17 PM
oh I labour, and I love
(damn that sounded creepy)
 
I worry that Astronomy and Space are both in the formative stage at the same time.
 
Me too

I worry about my questions and answers being scattered to the 4 winds if it closes
 
12 hours ago, by ManishEarth
user image
scope wise, then audience wise
Which highlights the need for the site, but also why it may not be so successful
I may meta post about this
 
and then being downvoted to oblivion for being off topic etc if migrated
 
6:21 PM
Because to me, Astro and Space "feel" the same
 
I still worry that if the site goes down, many questions/answers would be 'lost' - either migrated to a site I do not belong to, or migrated to a site where it slammed, or worse still - discarded
 
@ManishEarth I think the ideology is different, but i will agree they feel the same.
 
@UV-D you can always join the site
 
I see Astro as being a 'bridge' between Space and Physics
Space - technolology, science etc of space exploration
Astro - theoretical and observational astronomy

so there is a definite divide (with some cross over)
 
in The h Bar, 12 hours ago, by Chris White
@ManishEarth i would join if it were just amateur astronomy and such (maybe a place for purchase recommendations like photography.SE)
in The h Bar, 12 hours ago, by Chris White
but I don't condone their "and astrophysics" bit
in The h Bar, 12 hours ago, by Chris White
that's the problem - the fact that the amateurs who wanted it were afraid to ask astrophysics questions here means they don't want the kind of answer i'd give
 
6:29 PM
I am in 2 minds about astrophysics
theoretical and practical astronomy here
astrophysics perhaps at physics
I don't know about that 3rd statement - I was not aware that there was that problem
I didn't join to run away from Chris
and would welcome his insights
 
(to keep context: Chris is an astrophysics grad student -- one of the "experts" on our site)
@UV-D He's talking about the ones who wanted the site in the first place when they knew Phys already covered the scope
 
definitely would welcome his insights
@ManishEarth got ya - but surely that is not the case with many who are here
 
maybe, but when the site launches, why would people ask expert questions here when there are more experts on Phy?
Which is a big thing holding the site back.
 
hmmm perhaps this site needs to be focused on theoretical and observational astronomy
the latter is probably not strictly on topic at Space nor Physics isn't it?
 
All is on topic on Phys
And we have experts for the rest of astro already
 
6:35 PM
but would it be received well - or downvoted and labelled as 'homework' and other horrid tags
 
nope, well received
 
even my questions?
 
it worries me that we cant think of a good reason to have them seperated
 
this ^^
 
I'm seriously considering turning it into a meta post to get opinions, maybe someone could explain it better then either of us
it feels separate but I can't quite place why
 
6:39 PM
@ManishEarth silly question, and I mean silly
would the rep earned here be reset if migrated or would the upvotes, accepts and reps follow?
 
it follows, the last set did
(if i remember rightly)
 
I know it is a small thing, but I thought I'd clarify
so, I reckon we still give the place a red hot go...
another silly question, would Hissatron follow?
 
:P
that one is certainly more silly
 
but important nonetheless
or would I have to supply the hissing and spitting?
 
you might have to do so until its moved to a new chat room
i dont imagine it would be more than 2 mins work to move it
but remember, we are the fun start up,
 
6:45 PM
but that is IF astro falls
 
getting it approved in the big bureaucratic physics wont be easy
 
So @ManishEarth, whatever happens, efforts will not be wasted?
 
defiantely not! that would be a waste of time and information
i wonder what happens to closed questions, are they moved
and user who arent on physics, do they get created? or disassociated
 
or indeed a user not on space
anyways - I is going to bed - 4:50am here and I am still unwell
 
I've just asked my question for the day.
I hope it's meaty enough. I wasn't able to find any papers discussing it.
 
6:54 PM
ok checking the question then going to bed
upvoted and favourited - I want to know that answer also
good night/morning/evening/timzone all
!!beer called2voyage

@UV-D nope, everything is migrated

Nah, it's there be default!

@RhysW You are not authorized to delete the command RhysW
 
cant change it then :(
 
Of course not
 
7:11 PM
@DavidFreitag how come you get to teach it things!
 
Because.
 
!!/David
 
@RhysW That didn't make much sense. Use the help command to learn more.
 
i totally want to get a bot and make it do nothing but annoy manish's bot by pinging it with reguests
 
We totally ought to integrate the chatbot with eliza.js
 
7:13 PM
Bots don't get annoyed.
 
i wrote a program that 'evolved' before, that was good fun
 
And that could loosely be considered a war script. I wouldn't if i were you..
 
@ManishEarth used a war script the other day :P
 
"war script"?

@Hissatron the one you used to keep tildal out of chat
 
oh him
 
one day i will be a mod and will have my revenge!
maybe not in this universe though
 
@ManishEarth you should add a random complimenter. Use the $someone macro to choose someone at random and use the $rand(min, max) macro to choose a random compliment from an array :]
Or maybe just the JS rng would do too

@DavidFreitag nor mine.
 
I think they went through great lengths to not turn this into a war script =]
 
@ManishEarth "ReferenceError: window is not defined"
 
hmm
 
Besides, the script is only being run locally by you, if it were to open a popup, it would only open on your end
 
yep
but that would be scary
 
7:25 PM
Unless somehow this guy found a HUGE XSS flaw in SO Chat
that would be scary :]
 
@UV-D in tights, now that is scary!

Q: Concerns about this site

Manishearth(Apologies in advance if I seem to wander in this post. I'm having a multitude of thoughts and I'm not quite sure how t organize them) Ever since I've joined, I've been a bit uneasy about this site. Mainly, I couldn't exactly see what niche it filled. Firstly, the site was already a strict subs...
