@Phrancis Cucumber is interesting.
For what it's worth, that's just scenario definitions, it doesn't actually do anything. If you ran that code you would be told to implement the steps.
I'm not entirely sure it was a question that should have been answered - it reads very much like a "Should I split this into two tests or just one?" question a la conceptual, though it has already been answered now. That said, maybe reviewing tests is on topic on CR - it's code after all.
And by interesting I mean "It's cool, but it feels more like a toy than it has any actual use" (but that's my opinion)
Interesting morning this morning. I was unable to access any e-mails from Outlook or use Skype for Business. Why, you ask? Well, our servers went down on Friday so I thought it had something to do with that.
But what also happened on friday was an iKettle was hooked up in the office on a WiFi network.
We don't use WiFi normally, but I switched mine on because there was a code challenge involving the iKettle.. and forgot about it.

@CaptainObvious @Phrancis waaaaaayyy too broad
 
Monking! I have a problem/challenge to discuss.
 
@ambigram_maker Sure, what's on your mind?
 
My friend sent me an e-mail. I quote the question:
"Consider the sequence of digits from 1 through N (N<=9) in increasing order:
1 2 3 4 … N
Insert either a ‘+’ (for addition) or a ‘-‘ (for subtraction) between each of the digits so
that the resultant sum is zero. Print all possible combinations that sum to zero.
Example: Enter a number: 7
1+2-3+4-5-6+7=0
1+2-3-4+5+6-7=0
1-2+3+4-5+6-7=0
1-2-3-4-5+6+7=0"
I can only think of an O(2^n) algorithm for it.
Is there a faster one?
 
Kaz
11:11 AM
@ambigram_maker Just spitballing:
 
I can't think of any efficient ones...
 
Kaz
You have 2 buckets. They need to sum to the same value. You need to find every combination of sorting the digits into buckets such that they sum to the same value.
 
Yeah... that one
 
That's a good way to generalize it :)
 
Can dynamic programming or anything be applied to it?
 
Kaz
11:15 AM
@ambigram_maker IMO, just thinking about it for a few minutes, I can't think of any way to do it that isn't O(2^(n-k))
where k is some optimisations.
 
Me too... I doubt there is a way to avoid looking at all combinations
 
Kaz
@ambigram_maker You can trim some branches as you go, but yeah. It's going to be 2^f(n)
 
Worst part is... some numbers like 1, 2, 5 have no solution!!
 
Kaz
@ambigram_maker This is why you start with the largest digit and work your way down.
 
Hmm... ok... let's talk about trivial rejects...
 
Kaz
11:17 AM
Well, N = 2k has no solutions by definition
 
How can I identify a branch heading for a dead end?
 
Kaz
because odd total.
 
Are you sure.... ;)
Enter a number :
8
All possible combinations are :
1+2+3+4-5-6-7+8 = 0
1+2+3-4+5-6+7-8 = 0
1+2-3+4+5+6-7-8 = 0
1+2-3-4-5-6+7+8 = 0
1-2+3-4-5+6-7+8 = 0
1-2-3+4+5-6-7+8 = 0
1-2-3+4-5+6+7-8 = 0
 
Kaz
Correction: where the prime factorisation results in an odd power of 2.
Wait, prime factorisation? might be mod instead.
basically, if the total is odd.

@ambigram_maker If you need both sides (all pluses and all minuses) to sum to the same number (k) then your total is going to be of the form 2k, hence be even.

Oh absolutely, modifying the loop variable is not something that I would want to see in a code review or anywhere else! I've seen it used in obfuscated code contests but I can't recall any serious examples of it. I posted my answer in order to show the author a way to replace a C-style for loop, not to condone modifying the loop variable. That's why I didn't bother to translate the author's code, it would be an exercise in futility. Vote up or down as you like, it makes no matter to me. — Kenneth Bruno 55 secs ago

@ambigram_maker You can then make it even faster by terminating a branch early if you can determine that it can't branch anymore. (In the example, 7+6 can only get to 14 by adding 1, so we can skip all the intermediate steps. Same would be true of a total of 12).
In fact, now that I'm thinking of it. You could also build "tips" as you go along by starting at your total and subtracting the digits from smallest to largest, then appending your sub-branches to the main branches whenever they meet in the middle.
(I.E. for any branch that gets to 11, you know that it will end up with 2 child branches, 1 with +1+2, one with +3, so just append a pre-built +1+2,+3 branch tip)

Why isn’t IsHere a bit?

@DanPantry I wouldn't apologise for asking questions. Maybe "[Do we know] why IsHere isn't a bit?" if you want to soften it.
 
> Sounds like a signing error to me (sorry to just provide an opinion without being asked). Why isn’t IsHere a bit instead of tinyint if the sproc expects a bit value?
is what I sent. Office politics suck
I was CCed into the email, though, so I guess my opinion was wanted
 
2:40 PM
"IsHere" sounds very very much like a Boolean value. the only reason someone would name a column "IsXxxxx" and not make it a bit is because they're of the "make it a varchar(max) field that takes a Y or a N" school of thought. or something like it.
 
@Mat'sMug lol, I know the types ;0
 
If it makes you feel any better it is also nullable despite being a required field.. :P
And this is a table that gets populated on a routine job from another table in another database (it's not a data warehouse)
It honestly could not get much worse
 
and I raised opposition to this... and then the person who designed it now no longer talks to me for "backstabbing" them
 
IsHere doesn't make much sense as a field name either - Unless "Here" refers to, "here in this table"

It is referring to user accounts, FWIW.
The name isn't all that bad in this context. It's still bad, though.
Okay guys, apparently the reason it's not a bit is because you cannot index a bit
 
so what
 
So nothing, that's just the justification
As in, "why is it not a bit" "it can't be indexed" "why would we want to index a bit?" "you don't, it was just an example of why it might not be a bit"
 
lol
 
okay, I'm turning my e-mails off for the rest of the day now.

A: Should I cut my child's dad out of his life?

MastWithout more information about your legal status, we won't be able to give a fitting answer. However, I will try based on the given information. "We need not destroy the past. It is gone." - John Cage If there is no indication the father has had a bad influence on him or might expose h...

At least it wasn't "Fatality!"
 
No, that wouldn't be friendly.

@Bob a Twitch streamer called Quill was paid by Stardock to stream AotS for a few hours
Looks like we have an imposter
 
You'll get used to it.
It's hard to trademark a name.

Q: Sudoku solver in JavaScript

:28742266 I just see the cat for his true name
 
2:57 PM
Weird how refreshing makes a difference
Maybe the names are stored in memory
 
@Quill what?
 
That ^^
 
@Phrancis lol, that's awesome
 
@himarmjr nothing
 
2:58 PM
However, chat uses websockets. No caching involved :-)
 
o caching
 
My view probably uses caching for the names though.
 
The profile images cache
 
The image is the same.
 
Aye.
 
2:59 PM
Yeah, that's what I meant - perhaps the names / other information is stored, normalised, in the app
That's a fairly common pattern with Redux - because it's easier to deal with flat data than nested
 
I'm not using the app, I'm logged in with FF.
