@Hosch250 Tossed a coin?
Shouldn't this be on Code Review? Also I vote function getMax(arr) { return Math.max.apply(Math, arr); }Patrick Roberts 22 secs ago
@Mast I read them.
Such interrupt
The table is what made me choose Simon's as better.
12:00 AM
There are 1497 unanswered questions (94.4163% answered)
Did Duga just interrupt itself?
@Mast s/itself/herself
Now we just need to edit all those messages.
Speaking of pimping, any strong feeling about this?
Q: Do we really need this [framework]?

RubberDuckI'm questioning the usefulness of the framework tag. There are only 20 questions at the moment and they don't appear to have much in common. Seems like some kind of catch all tag to me. Should we burn it?

12:01 AM
@RubberDuck I agree with Simon's comment.
@Hosch250 Done.
A: Do we really need this [framework]?

MastNot every framework needs it's own tag. If a specific tag is available, use that. If not, use framework. It explicitly states there is no vanilla situation, which is valuable.

Kept it short, want more?
@PatrickRoberts This is likely to get voted to close for being "primarily opinion-based" even on Code Review. — Simon Forsberg 4 mins ago

That's a typo
I'm gonna keep it though

@rolfl Huh?
Just me documenting something somewhere..... my mandelbrot GUI is mesmerizing .... realtime video at that spot is "amazing".
Ok. Sounds like a good enough tag I guess. I'll take a look at cleaning it up if I get a minute.

Did you know that CG.SE launched?
I only have two questions there, but it's shaping up to be a great community.
Already has ~200 questions.
when did it launch
Interesting meta:
Q: How are we going to handle questions / answers becoming outdated?

DoorknobThis was brought up on Area 51, but I don't think it was sufficiently addressed. Taking into consideration the following: The primary goal of a Stack Exchange site is not to simply provide an answer only to the user who has asked the question—the "mission statement" of all Stack Exchange sites...

@EthanBierlein CG?
I still have the top voted meta post on that site.
@Mast Computer Graphics
Q: Should we have MathJax support?

Ethan BierleinAs of now, I haven't seen any questions that neccesarily need MathJax formatting, but I'm sure that at some point it'll be needed. Should we have MathJax support?

@EthanBierlein Don't all SE sites have it by default?
If the site doesn't need MathJax, then there's no need to lose performance for something that isn't used.
CG, on the other hand is absolutely packed with math.
12:28 AM
I suppose when the accepted answer's recommendation is no longer actively sold on the 'market' (obscure eBay sellers, not counted) the question could be marked with not-on-market or something similar. — Quill 8 secs ago
@EthanBierlein I'd say so.
@Quill That's not solving the problem, that's introducing
Yes. Computer graphics has boat-loads of linear algebra. We're going to run into answers (and probably some questions) with the need to show equations. — Qix Aug 4 at 19:16
A: Should we have MathJax support?

Christian RauTo back the general requests for MathJax support, the following is a community-editable list for anyone to add examples of questions which along with their answers would benefit from it: Is gamma still important to take into account? How can I concentrate points in areas of higher curvature? Wh...

I'm pretty sure that CG needs MathJax
@CaptainObvious Nice early morning review
Q: A more precise algorithm for creating a linked list of length n in C?

Patrick HenningI wrote this working code to create a linked list of a given length and print each node's values. Source and output: (also at: https://ideone.com/WDaLRP) #include <stdlib.h> //NULL #include <stdio.h> //printf typedef struct Node { int val; struct Node* next; } node; node* make_ll(in...

@CaptainObvious a bit suspicious in my books
12:37 AM
@Quill Indeed, that cleans things up.
oh thanks Santas
You're welcome. ;-)
@Quill Why?
Not the best question, but there may even be a gem hidden inside.
@CaptainObvious @EthanBierlein You could've removed the fluff on that one yourself. No I needed to finish it for you ;)
seems more like an algo review rather than code
@Mast Oh, sorry. I was focusing more on the top. Didn't notice the fluff on the bottom.
12:42 AM
gotta notice all the fluff
be a vacuum, man
i know it sucks, but you gotta do it
@Quill A vacuum pun, just great

OK MongoDb is pretty cool. Took me like 10 minutes to set up, and I'm inserting and selecting data already.
@EthanBierlein My internet will always be the issue. (protip: it's bad)
@Phrancis Nice!
Easiest database setup I've ever had to go through
12:45 AM
Can you do NoSQL? (that's what it's called, right?)
MongoDb is NoSQL, yes. It's basically JSON (though they call it BSON)
ah, lol

is it just me or the chat server just had a moment?
Seems to work fine apart from the fact that when I load the page and put the select from season 1 to 3 or from 1 to 2 then 3 both times it wont load the button tag for the first episode unless I click on episode 2 and back to episode 1. — John123 13 mins ago

 "likes": ["bubbles",...
It's true that @SimonForsberg likes bubbles!
Yeah, didn't his profile used to say that?
@Mat'sMug Keeps having them here.
@SirPython Yup
His picture used to have a nice bubble on it, during winter hats 2014
12:54 AM
@Phrancis I really wanna link that crab from Finding Nemo that shouts about bubbles
It's be lost on me, never seen that movie
This one?
I watched Finding Nemo not too long ago. It was awful.
I see bits and pieces of animated movies because a good friend of mine has young kids, but yeah; won't go out of my way to see them

12:55 AM
Look at the line above break; its incorrect like its only showing the first button tag I need it to show the right button for each value so for e.g. 7 - Lethal Weaons will do season3episode7.style.display = "inline-block" Get me? — John123 1 min ago

Q: Assistance with OO coding - Making it better

CFNZ_TechieI have made a program in python to do a filter of log files from a server.

I don't program for work, I do it on a requirement basis so I'm not good ...

Anyone interested in trying a Java app ... mandelbrot FTW - live navigation, panning, zooming, etc. Here on github
@syb0rg Alright, here is a pedant: SET ( in some places and SET( in others.
1:38 AM
Considering that my project is apparently 42.3% CMake files, I figured it was worth it haha
@Hosch250 Put it in a review!
It isn't worth it.
@Hosch250 Find more and put it in a review!
Hey, I don't know CMake, but this might be worth a review comment: SET(GCC_CXX_WARNING_FLAGS "-Wctor-dtor-privacy") on both your if else and your else.
Also, what about that empty-looking if?
I didn't know how to do a logical NOT in CMake... probably should've looked that up
Hmmm, GitHub makes releases easy: github.com/rolfl/mandelbrot/releases/tag/0.0.1
Copy down the Mandy.jar file, trust me, and double-click it.
1:43 AM
@rolfl I don't have Java, or I would.
I'm busy playing whack-a-mole anyway.
@rolfl trust me
Famous last silence of the trustee
Well, yeah.... I would generally not recommend that people just double-click downloaded jars...... but, trust me, it's OK.
Virus boots
^^^ What runs.....
Heh, no feedback, not sure whether to be impressed, or disappointed ;-)
@rolfl That is a badass image... got a video?
Or should I get the jar?
1:52 AM
Hmmm... I recommend you get the jar anyway, it's really cool dragging and wheeling your way in to the brot.
But I am investigating where to find a window-to-video thing anyway
Does it just run with regular Java [8]? (i.e., not need to fire up the IDE or install stuff)
It will b default run with the default java, just by double-clicking the jar....
(it needs Java 8).
Oh boy
That was actually pretty fun
Long review, any critique is welcome: codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/104285/…
Well then. I'll take that as good. :-)

Thanks santa(s)!
[rolfl/mandelbrot] rolfl created repository
2:00 AM
@Phrancis uh
@rolfl How'd you do that?
@syb0rg What? Make a runnable jar?
@rolfl Add it to Duga
@Phrancis I meant structure and what the actual content is, selects and updates really aren't hard
It was especially fun, trying to debug from mobile
@syb0rg Simon added a hook to Duga, and you can tell GitHub to post to the hook when certain activity happens.
Let me find the link....

@EthanBierlein No
@syb0rg Yup...
let me check my system here....
2:07 AM
Should I hook it to it's own room or this room?
Hmm, I got invited to be get the GM candidate beta of El Capitan. Wonder what that means

Am I right in thinking that, even if it provided proper context, this isn't an on-topic kind of question? codereview.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/44821

Roy NakumFirst one, #define SOME_VARIABLE 2 And second is, #define kSomeVariable 2 Which is best from above two? Or another except two? Why?

@Zak completely opinion-based. It's a "What is the best practice?" question rather than "Does this follow best practices?"
@SuperBiasedMan generally, we don't like A vs. B questions. We do like "I chose A, would another option be better?"
