Q: Have I done PubSub and Two-Way Data Binding .. Correctly?

iLikeProgramsSo I looked up how to use the PubSub pattern in JS and came across a few articles. I wanted to have two way data binding, so when a one of an Object's Properties value was set, it would update x ammount of subscribers. Sounds confusing but heres the relevant sections of my code: // data-cluckle...

 
@Malachi I personally think this repository is more interesting, but that might be a bit too much for you right now (and is in Java, and not JavaScript)
 
(sudden epiphany that Zomis is Simon backwards, with a N turned on its side)

Can't imagine how it would be like to do it in Javascript... brrr...
@Phrancis Correct. Pretty lame, eh?
 
Actually I thought it was clever
 
4:02 PM
Wow double epiphany!
 
@SimonAndréForsberg I saw that, and will fork it as well if only to translate to C#....LOL
 
triphany?

Q: Analyzing Minesweeper Probabilities

Simon André ForsbergCalculating probabilities in Minesweeper might sound like an easy task, but I've seen so many probability calculators that's either incorrect, horribly slow, or with ugly code (or all of them) so I have to share my code for this. This code is used within my Minesweeper Flags online game by the A...

 
@SimonAndréForsberg Really ?
I got a small answer on it :P
 
@rolfl ... Rolling On Le Floor Laughing ?

@Marc-Andre That's what I thought... so then it is technically nothing new for you. (Although I have improved it a bit since the review)
Still waiting for a review by @rolfl on my follow-up question, where I work with even more probabilities
 
yeah yeah.... I have work, and then there have been some time-consuming things to do, like meta posts, and flags, and chaos..... and books to read, and kids to feed, etc. ;-0
 
4:08 PM
@SimonAndréForsberg I've never look at everything! And there is still some things that I don't quite understand (no that good with probabilities and algorythm).

Q: Sql service broker and threading, this code works perfectly but does it make sense and can it be optimized?

VolearixSo basically my code waits for database table a to have an xml string inserted into it. The sql query parses the xml string and stores it into separate columns (this has to occur this way because the insert is actually happening from elsewhere, I just rewrote if for testing). The service broker l...

 
This title works perfectly, but does it make sense and can it be optimized?
 
@rolfl no worries :)
 
Rewritten the GroupValues yet?
You currently working?
 
@Marc-Andre I'm actually considering utilizing the Github wiki system for it to explain the algorithm better
 
4:11 PM
^^^ good idea.
 
@Marc-Andre algo rithm != rhythm :)
 
@rolfl not yet, no. Been doing a lot of stuff lately with the TCG project @skiwi and @bazola, and I are working on.
 
Although, Algorhythm would be a cool song title.
 
And next week I will have some real work to do it seems...
 
OK, I just had a thought..... for your chat bot (in Java), I can recommend something....
 
4:13 PM
@rolfl I'm listening
 
@Phrancis Thanks for the correction!
 
Although technically, @skiwi made most parts of the bot. I just helped a little.
 
Bluemix - a beta service from IBM, looking for novel ways to use cloud services.
short-term, it will give you free on-the-web application hosting
 
4:15 PM
kind alike google app-whatever-it-was-called?
 
In essense, yes, but can run Java, node.js, and others. Includes many backend services, like databases, etc.
 
free for 30 days... and then what?
 
Oh, really? Hmmmm....
 
I'll go AFK now for a few hours, back later
 
K, never mind. I thought it was free free.
@SimonAndréForsberg - free if you keep your application relatively small, 'freemium service':
You are charged for the time that your apps run and the memory that is used, calculated as GB-hours.

Runtime is free during the 30 day free trial.
(Up to 2GB maximum in total instance memory.)

Up to 1125 GB-hours are free each month after the trial.
(Enough to run multiple apps each month. Allowance varies depending on runtime.)
which is a 1.5GB memory app running 27/7 on 1 cpu.
 
4:27 PM
27h, is that a monkey day? Like... dog years?
2
 
uhm.... apparently
 
@rolfl You can't make us have it free free? ;-)
@rolfl What exactly does it offer though, the promotional page is a bit unclear to me ind eveloper terms
 
@skiwi Good question. There's some ethical things to consider.... I can't do it myself, but I work with these folk.... if there was a 'sponsorship' angle I could approach them with....
@skiwi in essence, you build a cloud application. The application is essentially myapp.ng.bluemix.net and is globally accessible. The backend of that can be one of a number of languages (Java, Node.js, etc.).
 
I'd be interested to experiment, but I've never used a cloud-based solution before
What's the 1125 GB-hours? It only measures memory usage, no cpu usage?
 
being globally addressable, and having no restriction on bandwidth, and being able to create socket/network connections anywhere..... allows you to, essentially do anything you can on your own server somewhere, except you no longer have to manage your own infrastructure....
in addition, you can link to backend services (databases, etc.) that are managed by other people too.
you just plug in to what you want, and then expose your app to the world.
 
4:40 PM
Where's the catch?
How is this profitable? By putting in on companies moving applications over there?
 
In theory, as long as you keep your utilization at the free level, there is not one.
 
Isn't 1.5GB a lot actually?
 
yes.
I am trying to find public information about why they are doing it the way they are.
 
@Mat'sMug I'm still laughing at this:

bobby tables.
 
4:45 PM
What about moving your services as company to such cloud? Does it bring out risks? Assume it's a server handling some kind of messages, if you make sure data comes in encrypted and goes out encrypted, do you have a risk?
 
@rolfl Context: I have aspergers. My ability to sense this harshness is impaired.
Many thanks for the edits, by the way; I just dumped the question on meta and then rushed home, you really polished it up good.
 
I'd want to test that service, but don't know what to run on it and worried about wasting my free trial :P
 
You could... make a program that writes a new FizzBuzz number every second? I'm not sure either.
 
I'm not pushing it, all I know is that IBM is trying to create an environment where people move their applications to the cloud, and then IBM sells the service... ;p
 
@Phrancis And link it up to this room?
There must be something useful I could make apart from the chat bot
The point is that currently most of our stuff can run on @Simon's server as well
 
4:49 PM
The requirement is that there needs to be a free-to-play level of service for everything, and then you make the money on the people who use it for business/mission-critical.
IBM can do it relatively cheap because: they have invested in multi-tenancy systems (lots of people securely using the same resources), and they also own SoftLayer.
cheap enough that they can carry the expense of the free-tier, as a loss-lead.
 
Still wondering how safe it really is
As we had a discussion a bunch of days ago about moving your code onto Github for example
 
@skiwi probably safer than Simon's machine ;)

Q: Is this a design pattern for a Haskell main function

awashburnAfter developing several Haskell applications I've found myself rigorously segregating impure code and failable (partial) functions from their pure & total counterparts. These efforts have noticeably reduced maintenance cost associated with the applications. I have found myself over time relying ...

 
But from a company point of view :)
 
Hm. Interesting question @CaptainObvious but sounds like it would fit better on Programmers...
> This has become a pattern in the code base,
and I would like feedback on whether this is a Design Pattern or an Anti-Pattern?
 
4:58 PM
@Phrancis Doesn't exactly sound off topic either though.
 
It doesn't.

A: Why would clipping a wire cause a bomb to explode?

@rolfl quick question, got a sec?
 
Um.... yes
 
I have a varchar field in my source, that I need to bring in as a decimal(10,5)
but one of the values is '123456.79'
and it overflows
 
So then you can't. ... ;-)
 
5:55 PM
how can I ignore that record?
 
That's an interesting one. Depends on your ingest tool.
Most bulk tools have a 'failed-to-load' report.
 
is it best to put its ID in the where part, ...I'd rather exclude "all values that might overflow"
my tool is called a "T-SQL script"
it bombs on that record, but there are like 40K more rows to process
 
You could probably do it with a where clause.
 
where f28 <> '123456.79'?
(yes, the field is called f28)
ah, no.
where len(rtrim(f28)) <= 6 would be better
 
where (CharIndex('.', f28) = 0 OR (CharIndex('.', f28) < 6 and CharIndex('.', f28) >= LENGTH(f28) - 6)
 
5:59 PM
(yes, f28 is a varchar)
 
or something ... ;-)
 
thanks rubbermonkey :)

Q: Multiple mysql queries in php code causing page to load too slowly

Hack? Perhaps. But it's better than losing data
 
@Malachi oh gosh.. uh, ...... nope!

  3. poêle f (plural poêles)
Verb: poêle

It's special seeing French in here
 
that is a short u sounds I think or a w sound

6:35 PM
> avoid using unnecessary open/close braces, vertical space is usually limited
 
@Mat'sMug The phoneme exists in English, as in "pure", but it's diphthongized.
 
thongs in code review chat?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg well, those are strong indicators that you may be at risk ;-)
 
I'm originally from Saint-Georges-de-Beauce, lived in Montréal for 3 years while attending college. Apartment was across the street from the big TVA building on boul. de Maisonneuve
 
@SimonAndréForsberg I always thought 'et tu' meant 'and you, too?'

@rolfl et tu, Brutus?

@rolfl ha - ha - ha
I didn't say that it was 'Latin' though, I said that it was Latin.
 
Names in Latin are declined. "Brute" is vocative — used when addressing a person.
 
@rolfl yes, I should really make it run Linux instead... some time... :)
 
That ^^^
 
6:42 PM
@Malachi I looked that over. Does appear that it leans to the 'no brackets' direction... but for vertical space? Is that up-to-date? I mean on old console screens I can see it, but I can easily get 100 lines on my screen and we all use the same monitors here.
 
Local rules rule... always.

Convenient, but noisy and usually smelly. goes back to work

does not cover the {} case.
 
6:50 PM
@Malachi As sad as it might be, could be referencing the old Doom standards. Lol. That's the only place I can find insisting on use of {}
 
@Volearix Doom is a video game man
 
I know. @.@
 
@rolf it's actually f34.. does that make sense?
			cast(case when isnumeric(f34) = 0 then '0.00000'
				  when convert(decimal, f34) > 9999 then '0.00000'
				  else f34 end as decimal(10,5))
(it works!)
 
@Volearix yeah Egyptian bracing style is a Java coding standard IIRC and C# doesn't like it
 
^^^ that's all that matters.....
 
Are we talking about nested usings vs placing them on the next line?
 
oh but it does use Egyptian Bracing style for if/else statements
 
@Malachi That is going to create consternation.... and is against C# standards.
 
If the link you sent me is the most up-to-date version, I will have to change it up. I can't find anything stating otherwise. Always made sense to me due to the lack of confusion when checking out if blocks, but better go with what the standards say.
 
6:53 PM
@RubberDuck Bracing styles
 
Yeah, there C++ standards.
 
@Volearix That mono-project style is not common C# code style.
 
@rolfl is that not a valid place to get standards from?
 
good:

if (a) {

bad:

@Mat'sMug just an FYI
 
@Mat'sMug It's actually db(DatabaseName) it's from a helper method so we don't have to type the connection or encryption methods.

Thanks for the tips, I'll use them but not edit the post as it will invalidate you answer. — Duckdoom5 4 mins ago

Q: Turn the "closed without comment" flag into a queue

GabeOne of the moderators on Stack Overflow in Portuguese was complaining about the number of "closed without comment" flags they had to deal with, considering the community has plenty of users who could provide guidance to newcomers and not leave all the work to the mod team. That flag only exists ...

is there a SEDE query to see the tags where I'm near the top?
 
(for the record, as much as I like handling flags, I hate having my numbers inflated by this wretched auto-flag)

> Some sites can stay in beta for a long time and have pretty mature rules.
