@RomanVottner why is this not an answer? You'd have my vote for sure... — Vogel612 2 days ago
@Vogel612 Answer has been posted. ^
 
well that's a silly thing
I don't know if there's a help center article or a meta post telling you when to vote to close how why what when where
and altering the wording of the reason would be pretty darn intrusive
so... word of mouth and my question as education tool...?
 
Changing the off-topic reasons is still on the to-do list. I should restart the process, hopefully tomorrow.
 
@Pimgd Not sure if a precedent like that is necessary or even desirable, some things are better left to people's discretion rather than a set of rules

12:07 AM
Okay....
so if I relabeled my question "is it a good idea to put a comment describing what's broken when I vote to close because of broken code" then ...
I don't actually know how to put this
 
Depends, you are asking both about a specific question and about a general principle
It's a bit hard to nail down
 
I would prefer it if others added more comments regarding why they vote to close for broken code. That'd make reviewing easier. But it is not within my rights to force them to do so. But I also cannot make a meta post saying "PSA pls put comments" because, well, that's not a question...?
So I'm left with... starting a discussion on whether it is good, and then just relying on "well, if it is good, then you should do it if you can (because presumably you care or you are a good person or ...)"
 
IMHO it's more of a specific question thing than a general principle. I'd say, the vast majority of questions fall into the obvious on-topic and off-topic buckets. Only a few, like that one, are kind of in the middle
 
... yes
you could throw numbers at it, but I'm asking about VTC'd questions (that's like, what, 25%?)
and of those, only one specific reason,
and of those, where the OP says everything is fine.
 
If you try to make a rule to catch every possible exception... well... we know how good } catch(Exception e) { is... =)

We know now that the particular subset is small, so, we just need to keep this conversation in the back of our mind when we spot them

Q: VBA Function that returns color RBG code of a referenced cell

Phillip HamiltonHere's my question - I have this function I'm building to return the RBG code of a cell I input. The code "works" but something funny is going on.

Does this seem too complex for rudimentary documentation?
 
12:47 AM
depends on what you want to do with this, but... I wouldn't consider this "documentation"
I'd refer to that when I'm explaining a method to the caller of said method
 
Hmm
It's basically explaining the structure of a glorified while loop, I hate the syntax for cursors
 
@Phrancis it's explanation. If that's what you're looking for it should suffice
documentation (or at least what I consider somewhat acceptable documentation) can be seen above
 
Ideally, the syntax would be something more like FOR(ROW r IN myCursor) DO SOMETHING
Microsoft/ANSI couldn't be bothered to come up with something people can actually remember though

@DanPantry Like reading the wrong memory block. Yea, how else would you describe it? :P
 
@DanPantry That's much better
 
@Phrancis I'd support that.
 
Basically if they don't share the same db context, then if one of the calls to the services fails all the ones preceding it will still succeed
Because they won't be wrapped in the same SQL transaction
= oh dear
 
Kill it with fire
 
Yeah, I really don't like it. Relying on the setup of DI to ensure your code actually works as expected seems to at least violate most principles
But it would require a significant rearchitecture in order to fix that
On the other hand, if spun up multiple services with different dbcontexts, that's the behaviour I would expect if I were creating those services manually
 
8:15 AM
Monking
 
It just feels bad because it's the DI orchestrating the affair, rather than the programmer
 
@DanPantry 10/10 for "at least violate most principles"
 
The correct way to fix this is CQRS.
But, as one wise woman once said, "ain't nobody got time for dat"

command query responsibility separation
you'd have command objects that describe the command but don't do anything
the service layer would assemble the command and pass them to an execution layer which would execute them as it saw fit (i.e all in one transaction)

Better to put this on Code Review if your code is working — RGA 39 secs ago
 
Zak
Fuuny thing happened yesterday. As part of my research into building this back office thing I was looking into current commercial solutions. I was not expecting to find anything that would be suitable for what we want to do. Turns out I was wrong.

We had one in for a demo yesterday, I came in with several sheets full of required capabilities, potential problems and technical questions.

I came out with none. I literally could not find technical fault with it. Anything and everything I'd imagined I'd want to build, they'd already built it, and to at least as good a standard as I'd intended to.
 
What's the catch?
 
> Monking @all
 
Zak
It's expensive. Not the most expensive we've ever seen, and it's probably worth it, but still expensive.
 
@DanPantry It requires his soul?
 
8:46 AM
@Zak And there's no other catch than it being expensive?
 
Zak
Well, there's your strategic concerns. We'd be building our entire data & processing & processes on a 3rd party platform.
And we could exit from it further down the line (I had lots of questions there) but it would still be painful.
 
How likely are they to collapse like a popped balloon is the only question to ask there

The parent company made a £3m profit last year, w/ about a 20% profit margin, so they're not about to go anywhere.
And did I mention, it's expensive
Like, running some estimates, 3% of our gross revenue expensive
 
That's a decent chunk, but compared to other solutions how much is it?
You said that it's not the most expensive you've come across
If you're going to be spending between 2-5% of your budget on this sort of software anyway I'd go for 3% for the feature complete one

@DanPantry It's actually mostly irrelevant by the time you get to your employment contract. The amount of regulation, compliance & certification we have to work with, an additional NDA doesn't actually cover anything more.

@200_success Any recommendations for learning more about regexp expressions, decorators and the slightly more advanced features in Python? Trying to get into the intermediate level.
 
@N3buchadnezzar Do challenges in which you can abuse regex to the max.
 
Have you used regexes before?
 
Nothing beyond the most rudimentary.
 
@DanPantry meh, for all the good that does :D
 
9:18 AM
Then you probably just need to find opportunities to try using them more.
 
Regular expressions are a solution and a problem all of their own
2
 
The Mastering Regular Expressions O'Reilly book is very useful for getting a good understanding.
 
I think regexes are truly awesome, but it can be a bit annoying juggling the different implementation specifics
 
For example VSCode's regex find/replace uses .NET's version, which has a different capture group syntax to SublimeTexts (python) and JavaScript's
 
though I suppose my issue is mainly with \1 vs $1 which is nothing to do with regex but the editors themselves..
 
Python does support explicit regex, which is great
 
REs are like SQL. You learn the concept, then you also have to learn a bunch of dialects.
 
Plain old regex is not much fun though
Thankfully there is regexr
 
The Perl 5 dialect is most featureful. Nearly every other implementation is a subset of Perl's REs.
 
9:23 AM
It's too bad that anyone writing Perl has a deathwish :\
 
@Phrancis I used to use that until I found regex101 which I find easier to use
 
Yes, but Perl RE may be the lasting legacy that Perl contributes to the computing world.
 
I guess you could say Perl RE is a.. pearl.. of computing
 
@DanPantry dad joke flag
Python really does have a pretty good RE implementation

Anyway, back to N3buchadnezzar's question about decorators and stuff… I dunno. Practice. I actually learned most of my Python by practicing on CR (applying concepts I knew before from elsewhere).
 
lol! so there was a bug hullabaloo recently about increasing a columns size from varchar(80) to varchar(max). E-mail sent out yesterday that the column size had been increased, to no ill effects. Turns out that the developer just added a zero, so it's varchar(800) instead of varchar(max).
 
@DanPantry GTFO
 
lol
2
That's not how you DB.
And yea, CR is a great place to test whether you're doing it right.
2
 
VARCHAR(MAX) is overrated
If you need MAX you probably should read back on data types in SQL
 
9:36 AM
@Phrancis In the scenario we have, varchar(800) isnt such a bad idea, but varchar(max) would better communicate the intent that "this could be any length"
the field in question is not likely to ever reach 800 characters but it will easily reach 80, unless there is another data type to say "this is a string, but there's no limit on it", varchar(max) seems appropriate
I'm not a DBA though so I am fully open to suggestions
 
@DanPantry As opposed to VARCHAR(8000)?
 
The non-DBA part of me is saying that assigning a definite length says that it would be expected to reach that amount
if i made an array in c# that took 5 elements, I'd expect that array to have 5 elements, not 4
 
Yeah, now you should listen to the DBA part of you :)
MAX types in SQL are stored outside of tables
 
It's not really something I have control over, BTW, this discussion is entirely out of my hand ^^
 
Maximum value types, on the other hand, are still stored in tables
Oh, carry on then :)
 
9:41 AM
No, but I am interested in hearing the difference
Just know that I can't actually change it
 
@Duga Rolled back.
 
@DanPantry Well, MAX allocates up to 2^31-1 bytes (2 GB) per column, which is too large for SQL Server to handle as a simple column/field in a row

Q: C# - How to optimize code that reads text files

Nickim a newbie at C# and would like input from more experienced programmers please. I have the following static class that enumerates directories in a folder, then searches each file in the folder (it seems to only work with text files even thought i dont explicitly specify that) for a given string ...

 
@CaptainObvious ouch
 
So, it stores a reference to the potentially very large string instead
 
9:44 AM
Does it always store a pointer, or only when it goes over 8k char?
 
It's all well and good if you know you may need 2 GB worth of characters, but if you don't, the query optimizer still thinks you do
@DanPantry Always, AFAIK
I'm pretty sure it's tied to the data type, and not the actual data, as to how it is handled
 
so yeaaaah I overslept
 
Cool - the more you know. CR is great for learning new stuff.
@Pimgd And the first thing you do is come to 2nd? ^^
 
no that's way after ofc
 
Short version, avoid all MAX types unless you know you need them

merge conflicts on an .edmx file are truly hell.

Thank you dan$ git checkout ORIG_HEAD *.edmx
 
@DanPantry Another day, another damned XML file
 
The really annoying thing is that we could just use code-first and thsi wouldn't be a problem :(
and it would also give us database migrations in one fell swoop, something we are also struggling with
 
9:58 AM
@DanPantry Too easy, no-go. Gotta earn that developer pay.
 
lol
I think there is something to be said for migrations having to be done in C# and not in SQL
but it's a lot of work, these merge conflicts
 
WAT
Please say you don't mean database migrations
 
If you wrote migrations using EF code first, they would have to be written in C#
We don't do that
But it would mean a developer would have to write migrations in SQL and then update the C# stuff manually if we didn't use EF code first
Which I suspect is the reason why we are using .edmx files in the first place
 
@Phrancis Variable sizes in databases always confuse me.
 
@DanPantry sadface
 
10:01 AM
@Phrancis What?
seriously if you have any suggestions for db migrations I am all ears. It's a problem I suspect will come up again in my career
 
@DanPantry I suppose I would expect the database migration code to be... well... SQL
 
That's what it is now
However we have a.. funky way of handling the migrations
we have a folder (000.000.000.000, corresponding to version) that contains all the scripts for that version
the main issue with this is that we can't predict what feature a version is going to be promoted to if it spans multiple sprints
 
@Mast Variable sizes are a lot like String, you just put stuff in them until they are full. They mostly only use the size they need
 
and all the migrations are done by hand, and not automated in any way
There are of course commercial tools like Redgate but they are expensive
 
Zak
I get the strong impression they only threw that sub together to demonstrate their slow Databse, but I gave it the proper CR treatment anyway ^^

@DanPantry what do you mean by "what feature a version is going to be promoted to"?
 
@Phrancis Uh, sorry. I meant what version a feature will land in.
 
As in, server/engine version? Or code base version?
 
So let's say I'm working on a feature and it spans multiple sprints, well, currently, all scripts for that feature must be placed in a version folder. I don't know when that work wil lbe done, so I don't know what version it will land in.
Code base version
This has bitten us before, where we've missed scripts or executed some scrpits twice because there's no way of knowing - by hand - what scripts have an have not been run.
