Ah. I'm not sure then.

Seems reasonable. I'd assume most things that'd come up in a search would be completely unrelated to what you're talking about anyways.
Anyone here have some knowledge of threading in C#?

In this context, "parallel" means that they both may be run at the same time, though that is not guaranteed. What is guaranteed by Parallel.Invoke() is that the .Invoke() method will only return after all the methods have finished executing.

Q: Why is {} + {} no longer NaN?

Filip HaglundI noticed today that Chrome 49 no longer outputs NaN when you type {}+{} into the console. Instead it outputs the string [object Object][object Object]. Why is this? Did the language change?

 
I didn't like it.
 
looks like chrome now treats this operation as a string concat rather than addition. WHY that is, i don't know, which is why this is a comment not an answer :) try var e = {}; e.toString() and you'll see what i mean — sgroves 9 hours ago
 
It was far too cramped.
 
I'm not sure what is more confusing. {} + {} === NaN, or {} + {} === ''.
God bless javascript.
 
Something tells me {} + {} === 2 would be far more confusing.
 
7:46 AM
{ foo: 'bar' } + { bar: 'baz' } should either be { foo: 'bar', bar: 'baz' } (not modifying original object) or a TypeError IMO
 
No, it should be 2.
Always 2.
 
or just the simple answer that you shouldn't be able to concatenate things directly like that
 
No, 2.

A: Is it possible to synchronize userscripts between Google Chrome installations?

Anderson GreenIt is already possible to synchronize userscripts using the Tampermonkey extension for Google Chrome. To synchronize userscripts, go to the "settings" tab of Tampermonkey. Set "config mode" to "beginner" or "advanced", and then enable "Chrome Sync" under "TESLA".

So, I would recommend you change your swearing :P
At any rate, not sharing solutions so that they may improved IMO is a really bad idea.
It only teaches someone to get it "just" working and not on how to make it more efficient
That helps no one and hurts everyone. It denies the person who wrote the answer of how they could do it better, and it deprives the wider community of someone who cares about making their code more efficient

9:51 AM
@DanPantry what's the problem with finally
 
@Pimgd It isn't in the implementations in browsers/es6-promise
It's basically analogous to finally in try/catch, but with promises
 
oh there's a not in there
luckily you can build your own by building a wrapper, I think
 
Yeah, there's a wrapper for it, it's just annoying that it isn't in there by default
It probably won't ever go into the standards now either as the next release will have async/await which removes the need for finally in Promises

I am very, very mad right now.
I am never working in a place that does Windows or TFS again
 
haha Windows
 
its literally all because
TFS has a file called CompanyDetails.scss on it
the file name is actually companyDetails.scss
git bash understands that the file names are different
TFS does not
So when it tries to push companyDetails.scss up, git bash complains that I should have uploaded a file (CompanyDetails.scss)
 
@DanPantry TFS isn't case sensitive? That's backwards...
 
and renaming it to CompanyDetails.scss doesnt' work either because git bash can't detect the change because the local file system say the same thing..

@Pimgd Do you have an example of that "leaderboard" in use?
The answers in that question are not a leaderboard.
It's an alphabetical table of contents.

Q: Shotgun Numbers

Martin BüttnerThe Shotgun numbers are a sequence with a rather simple definition but some interesting structure. Start with the natural numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, ... Now take all numbers at indices divisible by 2, group them into pairs, and swap the numb...

It's not very great, I guess, but OTOH that guys complaint about who watches the watchers (of blog list) is kinda valid if voting doesn't change the link's order, so to say
 
Anyone can & should edit other answers into the table contents. If you could make a question a wiki, I would.
But there are other examples of lists exactly like this on CR Meta.

Q: The Same Behavior for Boolean and Exception

userThe following code uses a boolean preference active: In the active state, it does an operation which could throw an exception. On this exception, it does the same as the non-active state. let active = Simple.prefs['bloom']; function htmlSize(url) { try { if ( active ) { r...

Q: Tools for format and error checking in your programming language

Mat's MugLints and Hints: What tools are available for checking and correcting the conventions, style and common errors in my language (lint tools), and are there tools that can automatically fix them (hint tools)? This is a follow-up to a comment posted on Is there a place for automated code reviews? ...

and a Necromancer badge!
 
@Pimgd No one minds that list and how it works...
 
did those technophobes come back while I was gone?
 
the blog list is exactly the same
 
@nhgrif oh re-reading this it makes sense now
can we give the list a header
that it's alphabetical
 
@nhgrif Don't mind that guy complaining, the rest of us isn't bothered.
 
12:16 PM
Again, @Pimgd ... why?
The tools list doesn't have that header
but it's clear enough to me that's the case, otherwise I would've either added Swift at the bottom because it's the newest addition... or at the top because it's the best
 
because for blogs its non-obvious
it was nonobvious to me
 
If it's non-obvious it's only because the list is short.
 
> Where can I go to get more helpful advice for improving my code from these users?
> 418 Status
importBlogKit
Journal of daily hacks
Loki Astari
Random Lyle
are those users?
 
Why would 418 status go at the top?
They're links... click them.
 
I thought they were users at first and the question seemed really oddly specific
point is; it is confusing
I think a single line of text could make it clear
if it is already clear to you
it was not clear to me
I think there are more people like me
I think adding a line of text would help those people
and that it would help more than that it hinders the rest of the people
hmmmmh
yep looks good
thanks
 
12:21 PM
@nhgrif Numbers come before letters in alphabetical order
 
@Pimgd The names of the blogs.
@Malachi That ^^
 
@Mast keep reading more chat messages to find out that it was non obvious
 
@Malachi Exactly. My question is rhetorical.
 
can I get the link quick?

Q: Code Review Blog Library

nhgrifI really enjoy reading some of the answers posted by Code Review users. Where can I go to get more helpful advice for improving my code from these users? Let's list a few off-site resources authored by Code Review users which address some of the common problems we see in code... 418 Status im...

@nhgrif sorry I just got here....lol
 
@Pimgd I've been lurking.
 
@Malachi your answer should be wiki
XY Problem should be a closure reason. — vikingosegundo 14 mins ago
 
@nhgrif and done
I need to write another blog post
 
same
 
I should write more answers...
 
12:24 PM
oh yeah right I was writing an answer
 
I just need to write C# answers.
 
gotta write more java answers here, 24 answers/201 votes away from gold badge
and should get javascript bronze badge today
 
That's a lot of points.
Did you write two answers on the same question?
 
Kaz
12:29 PM
@Pimgd I'm still a whole 150 answers away from a gold badge
 
RAGE OF STRIN!
 
Kaz
@Mast I'm guessing it went HNQ?
 
Probably.
That's when I get a whole whack of points with questions, answers go double.
 
You know those comments won't effect answers right? Other than perhaps a decreased likelihood of getting answers because of the perception that you were too lazy to clean up your code before posting it to get free help. — nhgrif 8 secs ago

@nhgrif That question sounds a lot like it's Off-Topic in some way shape or form.
