gotta fix that
 
I'm back :D
 
@StackExchange Why does the Code Review site have 'database-design' and 'database-schema' tags, if this question was hurriedly migrated?
 
@ChrisW that's a very good question.
@Jamal? ^^
 
Apparently because @Malachi wanted to answer it on the dba.stackexchange.com site?
 
@ChrisW: There was no code to review.
 
12:06 AM
@Jamal yeah and that's fine, but why do we have and in the first place?
 
I have no idea.
 
there wasn't any code. if they had provided the Creation code then it could be reviewed
 
There was a database design. Do you only review database schemas if they include the DDL instead of the pictorial equivalent?
 
That's the part I'm not buying ^^
 
but there was no table creation SQL plus he didn't have the constraints or anything, it was conceptual and not actual.....does that make sense?
 
12:08 AM
There were FK's. That's a constraint to me.
 
He marked the foreign keys.
 
FK's :)
 
there wasn't any datatypes either. and nothing that we could test to see if it works
 
right.
 
we couldn't produce any results from the picture really.
 
12:09 AM
I think there's enough meat for a meta post about these tags.
 
I have to leave now. I'll be back in about two hours.
 
@Jamal Bye
 
later @Jamal
 
Cya.

A: Design database for real estate property management?

Malachiyour diagram looks good, I assume that you are going to expand on the tables that you have as you develop this diagram more. I would pull out the Purchase information into their own table. also addresses should be their own table as well that way you don't duplicate data when a user moves int...

 
I'd need an account on DBA
 
@retailcoder I don't have a DBA account either
 
Ditto. It seems to be on-topic at DBA, per their FAQ. Will the OP get better answers there than here? Should all database design questions therefore be off-topic here?
 
@Timtech You should go through my answers again, but this time read through them and make sure they are worth up-voting. You don't want to up-vote too quickly, or too much.
 
@ChrisW start a meta post about it. some things are very much on topic here. like the posts about creation scripts, Sprocs functions, etc
 
12:14 AM
@syb0rg I
 
@syb0rg do the same with my answers. here and on stackOverflow @Timtech. what languages do you guys code in any way?
 
I'll do so over a couple of days
Timtech, the site administrator, is experienced with the following programming, scripting, and markup languages and techniques:

HTML
GML (Game Maker Language)
CSS
EXE modification
JavaScript
TI-Basic 84
Windows Batch
Arduino
DLL injection
Perl
PHP
Python
XML
Java
RobotC
Ruby
Plus Brainf**k and Deadfish Tilde (Deadfish~)
 
Where's C#?
 
Nope.
:]
 
@Malachi Does the up-voting I do reciprocate? ;)
 
12:15 AM
tss.
 
@retailcoder And Task Scheduler Script to you too.
 
@syb0rg I was checking out the Raspberri-pi questions and answer that you posted too
 
(Does that even exist?)
 
lol. CSS, HTML & XML are programming languages?
nevermind
 
XML is a very powerful language.
 
12:17 AM
I missed that small part: the following programming, scripting, and markup languages and techniques
 
"programming, scripting, and markup languages and techniques"
 
@Malachi indeed. XAML came out of it :)
@Timtech exactly :)
 
@retailcoder XSLT
 
@Malachi Java, C, C++, Python, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, PHP, Arduino, Bash, and probably some others I'm forgetting.
 
12:18 AM
Well I'll be leaving now.
I'll be on tomorrow. Bye!
 
Does LaTeX count?
 
I am going to see about some Python one of these days.
@syb0rg yes
 
Then add that to the list.
 
@Timtech where can I +1 on your "Stop spam. Do math.
9 × 1 = ? "
ah, well bye then!
I'm so limited.
But I'm happy with C#

What the heck is that ^^^ saying?
 
12:37 AM
Doesn't make much sense, loops don't return anything I know of. But blame the Spanish. Ironically a Spanish guy came up with the crap I've been struggling with for almost a week now.
 
@Jamal en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_Patterns is the book I read, after learning C++ (and reading Meyer's Effective C++ books about mistakes to avoid), that was the book that gave me insight into why I might want to use a language (like C++) that supports OOP.
 
@retailcoder We're just validating that you've at least passed Basic Math Fundamentals (and that you can read, of course).
 
oh gosh, wasn't sure what that was referring to, thought I had failed some test or something.

Oh ok

I'll have one for you
 
@retailcoder Lol

Q: F# rectangle packing algorithm

DarwinI would appreciate it if someone experienced in F# and/or functional programming to look over my code. This is practically the first thing I wrote in the language so I'm sure it's filled with non-idiomatic stuff and unoptimized code. I'm not interested in implementing a more efficient algorithm....

@retailcoder thanks for bringing it up!!!
@Timtech that's not spoon that's machine code
 
NO ITS SPOON
And I wrote it in 5 mins
By hand too
 
Console.WriteLine("your mom");
 
@Timtech is spooning his computer?
 
in C#
 
1:03 AM
No, it's not
 
written in 10 seconds
 
@retailcoder Meh
@Malachi I can write fast code
"The fastest code is code that runs fast." - Immigrant
Besides...
 
While (true) {Console.WriteLine("your Mom");} there is some fast code for you
 
"YOUR MOM

That's TI-BASIC right there
 
try to keep up with the console after running that

There
Don't blame me for crashes
 
I like the fact that you can fix a TI-bug by smashing the damn thing on the wall.
 
1:07 AM
Not really
It just nulls the dev by popping out the batteries
The archives viruses can still be a pain though
 
@Timtech voilà, bug fixed!
 
More like, RAM cleared
 
yeah
 
Lol
 
but oh so satisfying
 
1:08 AM
Not really
As I said before, archived stuff can be a pain
Especially viruses that can't be un-archiged
Then you can't smash it out no matter what
 
lol. so everytime you power on your TI, it runs an infinite loop that outputs "YOUR MOM"?
 
No

Q: Travelling Sales man based Question

@Jamal I'm not completely sure ^^^ is on-topic.
 
It's not.
 
@Jamal do you agree with this?
I guess it could be reviewed, but OP shouldn't expect a direct or indirect answer to the specific issue being encountered. Which doesn't keep an answerer from giving it away either, although reworking the code could make the source of the problem much more obvious. — retailcoder 46 secs ago
 
3:21 AM
More significantly, isn't it a duplicate?
 
I have always been on the fence about that. Although we can easily review any code we get, not everyone posting an off-topic question is wanting a review. Plus, that could make "unclear what you're asking" less of a close reason here, and I assume all default close reasons should fit well with all sites. But that last part may just be me being paranoid.
 
Nope, never mind, not a dup.
 
@rolfl: Not anymore, because it was deleted for some unknown reason.
 
@rolfl I thought the same thing at first.
 
Sounds to me like he's quite nervous around here. The previous question got an upvote, but was still deleted.

Well, at least I got my vote back :P

You may do it, that way it'll be a nicer edit (if you'll be taking mine).
 
yup, it's your edit. done.
 
Yes, I suppose the back-and-forth can get awkward, but it doesn't seem to happen very often. At the end of the day (literally), the OP got what he wanted, and the code was still answered on the appropriate sites.

^^ truckload of very, very short answers
ok 2-3
2 actually. Including the accepted one.
 
@rolfl Yeah, this code could use you. I think another programmer attempted implementing an object pool... but I'm pretty sure that it only uses one object at a time. I'm gonna add an ExecutorService and see how that will work out.
 
@rolfl @SimonAndréForsberg really? it's good practice to use static just because now you're not using member variables?
isn't it a breaking change to turn public static void into public void afterwards?
@SimonAndréForsberg the RSS feed has been there all along. works in Outlook, but not in the chatroom.
 
@retailcoder If you can use static on a method, it's often a good idea. Just to show that it's not dependent on any instance variables (and hopefully not any static variables either, since only idiots use static mutable variables)
...idiots like the one who wrote this code I'm working with...
 
Right.
How about instance-level fields: private SqlConnection CN; - right-click, find usages... found 92. private string Qry; - right-click, find usages... found 162. private DataSet DS; - right-click, find usages... found 396. In one single freakin' window's code-behind.
 
@retailcoder I do like the idea of increasing testability/ability-to-override by making some methods non-static though, but for most utility methods I rarely need to override and therefore use static
right-click, find usages? Oh, you mean Ctrl+Alt+H...

A class of 4703 lines here :)
Indian coding standards?
 
Alt-F7 is a standard JetBrains thing.
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Yeah like there's such a thing

Needless to say, I rewrote that crap.
 
Lucky you
I can't rewrite it
I'm "making it work", and then I have to move on, leaving 396 undisposed DataSet instances in place.
And a memory leak isn't bad enough of a bug to justify action. Users can still work.
@rolfl hadn't upvoted that one yet. Just napalm-striked it.

A: Improve HTML structure?

Malachiyour Table is not declared correctly in the markup. This: <div id="body-main-bottom"> <Table><tr /><td /></Table> </div> Should look like this <div id="body-main-bottom"> <table> <tr> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> </table> </div> your self ...

this answer is starting to shape up nicely, got the accept sometime last night
there are some other answers that I think should get at least one or two more votes as well
 
Hehe ... An answer from early december just got accepted.... finally, and I got a shiny new Enlightened badge.
 
how is everyone anyway?
 
@Malachi could be worse, you?

@Malachi - that is a good answer. Confident, well structured, and scored +1 from me.
 
@retailcoder didn't get much sleep so I am tired, but other than that I am feeling good. got paid, the money isn't gone, yet. in other words the auto payments haven't come out yet
@rolfl thank you
 
@Malachi Same here

Q: l33t Speak translator

udbPlease review the code quality of this l33t Speak translator. Improvement suggestions are welcome. Here it is - http://jsbin.com/IHoFuQE/1 (function() { "use strict"; // http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet // http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/crackers.html var alphabets = { // common "...

 
I'm pretty sure that's a sign of the apocalypse.

A: Coderbyte SimpleSymbols challenge in Javascript

tomdemuytFirst off, my solution was way more convoluted ;) Other than that, 2 minor points It is good practice to have a shortcut to [].length in general Since 'a' is larger than '+' and '=' you can drop a part of the logic So you could try something like var simpleSymbols = function (s) { for (...

am I the only subscriber of the RSS feed for new CR answers?
 
@retailcoder can I set it to the languages that I want to see? where is it?
 
It feeds every single new answer, regardless of the tags
I believe there's a per-tag RSS feed, but I think it's questions only.
@SimonAndréForsberg how's the MSO RSS request doing?
 
@retailcoder Yes, I'm new here.
 
2:48 PM
I thought that comment was quite funny :)
 
@retailcoder I noticed I had received a down-vote on it, but still no response from the dev team
 
Yes.
 
malachi Whispers to @retailcoder hoping that no one will hear him, how do I use that? do I turn it into an html page that I open up in my browser???

That wasn't ever an awkward moment I was able to experience personally.
 
@Malachi oops starred

@Malachi Use a RSS feed reader. I use this one back home, loving it: feedreader.com/feedreader/releases/3.14
 
@retailcoder at least you didn't pin it
 
@Malachi just grab the URL and paste it into your favorite RSS feed reader :)
@Malachi I could :p
 
@retailcoder I don't think I have ever had an RSS reader...... oooh something new to distract me from my real job... :)
 
Got Outlook?

A: Is good practice to use static modificator for private class methods which doesn't use non-static fields?

user3067411Declaring an static and unique random number generator method is a good choice if you want to centralize the generation of those numbers. However, don't forget to also mark the method as synchronized if you're planning to run your code in a multithreaded environment. You should also declare the ...

A: How to refactor JQuery interaction with interface?

tomdemuytYou are asking a high level question, so I am going to give a high level answer. Your listeners should have at most 2 lines of code inside, 1 line that changes data in the model if required, one line that updates the screen, if required. This means that you need to extract from your listeners...

 
@retailcoder I can do it in outlook???

A: Backbone.Collection - Ensure that at most one model has property set to true

tomdemuytThat seems wrong on a few levels. Slows down every update call This is pretty much 'magic happens here' I feel this should be enforced in the UI, is it not too late for this in Backbone? I would modify the setter to accomplish what you need : http://stackoverflow.com/a/9415926/7602

@Malachi yes! there should be a RSS icon below (not under) the "Inbox" folder - actually a folder called "RSS Feeds"
 
Right-click, add new, paste url, enjoy. Or google it up ^^
