Java/Android Zombie down:
A: How to rewrite my code for adding Buttons to be more time-efficient?

Simon André ForsbergWhen reading your code, the Strategy Pattern alarm goes off in my head. Before that however, I have some other remarks. Indentation. If you are using Eclipse, please select your code and press Ctrl + I to indent your code properly. Please read up on indentation in the Java Coding Conventions Sp...

Q: Handwritten C# MD5 implementation not producing correct hash

omnichromahave been handwriting an MD5 Hash function (for learning) and I've encountered a problem and I'm not completely sure what it is.

Off-Topic C# zombie
@SimonAndréForsberg Headshot made ... but you may want to re-edit ... indenting wrong for public class CollectBranchesAction
@SimonAndréForsberg ...... WAKE UP!
12:21 AM
@rolfl I'm awake! I'll fix
SO told the OP that it belongs here, yet the question clearly mentions errors. What?
@Jamal - hey Junior!
@rolfl: Did you call me that because you now have more rep than me? :/
@Jamal Isn't the first time unfortunately...
happens all the time
12:22 AM
@Jamal uh-huh!
Eh, no hard feelings. :-) I'm really not not all that great at C++; I can just fix the "easy" stuff. That alone has gotten me much rep, though.
12:49 AM
@Jamal that and editing :)
Yes, definitely that. :-) And I'm still okay with gaining no rep with direct edits. I just like cleanliness.
cleanliness is next to Jamalness
Jamalized is close to javelized - that's getting clean!
javalized would certainly be an improvement
more OO
12:56 AM
I can make the Weekly Challenge . After 10 days I believe, the tag on Grace Note's post will expire.
@rolfl are you hitting 3K tonight??!!
@retailcoder depends on whether you vote for me ... ;-)
@retailcoder I responded to your comment .... really?
@Jamal The CoD totalled got more upvotes than GraceNote's post today :)
@rolfl TBH I never actually given thought of how I'd be doing that
You know, in the past 37 days I have 3 silver, 33 bronze (almost) 3K, and 6days maxed.
There is no way I can keep that pace.
@rolfl what, are you exhausted?
1:00 AM
Actually, yes.
(like physically/IRL).
Same here...
I have been going on about 4 to 5 hours sleep for the past 2 weeks.
i did the same thing when i first came to CR.... had a huge rally for like 3 weeks
and then very sharply slowed down
CR is very time consuming
That it is.
4-5 hours for 2 weeks? ouch!
1:02 AM
I've had a really bad sleep schedule all semester.
16 weeks, also about 4-5 hours a night.
@rolfl Yes, Please slow down! You're making the rest of us look bad
But seriously, we shouldn't hinder anyone's legitimate rep-gaining. We cannot graduate at our rep levels now.
If you look at my stats, for the past 2 weeks I have answered about 4 questions per day, each of them has scored at least 1 upvote, most only 2 or three, but the occasional one has scored bigger than 5.
I have tried to 'budget' my time to allow me to 'play' with a problem while in the middle of my own cr*p at work.
@rolfl I think I understand the feeling. I also answered about 4 questions per day for a while. Haven't been able to keep up with that pace recently.
i decided the other day to start breaking up my answers more
most answers i see on CR could really be 3-4 answers
the giant wall of text answers anyway :)
1:05 AM
@Jamal Absolutely true. We need all the high-rep people we can get. I think it will take time to get there, but I am sure that we will get there.
In all honesty, I've begun to question the long term viability of CR lately... but perhaps that's just biased by my exhaustion towards the site as of late.
Since I seem to have the lowest programming experience here, I may need to rely on at least staying a pro-tem. Right now, my highest privilege would be for tag synonyms.
it just seems like every answer is the same "tl;dr: SOLID" crap over and over again
and it gets tiresome
I'm starting to feel that way, too. But if we fall, where else is there to go to get code reviewed? Surely not Yahoo! Answers.
1:07 AM
Q: Is it feasible to create a syslog server which writes to a client dataset?

Jerry DodgeI'm creating a simple syslog server in Delphi XE2 using Indy's TIdSyslogServer. I've decided to make it dump into a TClientDataSet and display in a TDBGrid, but I'm skeptical about how well it would handle if the log got quite big, and what I should expect when it grows to millions of records. Th...

that makes the assumption that there should be a place for code reviews
@Corbin I like that assumption
part of the problem to me is that everything really is the same theory. it's just a way to show specific people their specific problems and short comings. i love code review. but... i just worry about it
i just worry that it's not really that useful in terms of just stumbling across it
Well, if it weren't for CR, my code would still look like junk. I'm way too scared to ask questions on SO.
it's more of a parasitic relationship than a world-benefit relationship
and that's what concerns me
idk... i guess i just worry to much
because ive definitely learned tons from CR
1:09 AM
@Corbin to a large extent I agree with you.... reviewing code is time consuming and patience is required. It takes a certain type.
Loki Astari's reviews on random people's code are the only reason my C++ is now just bad and no longer complete shit.
Okay, maybe not junk. Unless this qualifies.
Well, you be the judge.
And compare that to this.
Agreed. He really is great at what he does, and I hope to be as good as him one day.
yeah... i don't know. i'm just in one of my negative moods :). all i know is that i hope CR becomes a full fledged site. otherwise i'm not sure where i'll spend all my free time :). and it does certainly help. it requires a lot of effort on the consumers part for it be helpful though, and for the most part, people are not willing to put out that effort x.x
yeah, Loki amazes me.
everytime he makes a post i get a little excited haha
1:12 AM
I've only gotten a few accepts from under him, but that's probably just because I was first.
(I'd super-ping him, but I feel that it may bother him if it's not important)
@retailcoder: Did that SO "slam" interest you? ;-)
What you have begun to discuss here is interesting, unfortunately bed calls over here, but I do have a few ideas on how to improve quality of Code Review which will make it easier to review questions. Look out for a meta question or two in the next couple of days. (And please remind me if I forget :P)
Good night for now (or good evening for some of you)
Good night!
@Jamal I pinned it for the first sentence :)
i've thought about making a meta post of all of my concerns, but... havent gotten around to it :)
good night!
@SimonAndréForsberg 'night!
1:15 AM
i actually need to go too. see you later everyone.
@Corbin what kinds of results do you get if you google up rock paper scissors lizard spock c#?
I've just done that, and they're at the top!!!
Could be my browser & history messing up search results
1:18 AM
2/3 of the top 3 results are my CR posts from last week's ! - no, wait.. that link has them at the top indeed!
I think the more active we are, the more CR will come up in search results
My question... is #2 to this one:
Q: stuck on do while loop for C++ rock/paper/scissors/lizard/spock game - undeclared identifiers

@rolfl wut? how?!
It was not my fault
I was not even trying
well congrats!
so this means... the dang badge wiki is confusing!!

2:00 AM
I guess it is not 10 people for 1 post, it is tn different people for any number of posts?

the new SE Bar is supposed to be so smart, it shows 4 silver badges, but I have not yet got a notification
I don't even pay attention to dates. I just edit like Dr. House takes Vicodin.
@Jamal ... seriously... I am not sure how it works... noone has starred any of my chats today .... how do I suddenly get the badge
Awarded 14m ago
Okay people. Who starred the monkey?
There goes another one...
@Jamal Well I had to.. I just noticed 1/2 of my recent posts were "lol" - I need to stop that.
2:08 AM
Me, too...
(thought you were going to say "lol")
lo-- nope, not doing it.
Someone took a practice shot:
That answer is fantastic.
2:37 AM
@rolfl guilty - congrats :)
It was you! ? But you have starred before.....
No, check your rep score
You starred the monkey!
Yes, I'll do that later.
When you least expect it...
Actually, your account is trapped in Meta, forever to haunt the good people for eternity.

I was in a haze learning javascript....
So I missed that you put me over 3K, I thought you were saying that you got me the badge....
And I thought votes were anonymous...
@rolfl oh. and I thought I was slow..

He's an a**hole!
@retailcoder how do accepted but no-upvoted answers affect the zombie stats?
It's a question with no upvoted answer.
i.e. the answer is a target :)
heh, someone has to shoot some ammo at my rep at some point ... ;-)
(whistles innocently)
I just scanned the Java unanswered queue, and, the rest look 'hard'/
4:08 AM
...If you know what I mean!
yeah ... ;-)
Wow, okay... back to discussing code review.
I started when there wre more than 100 unanswered Java's, and it's down to less than 80
if it's hard for @rolfl, we've got a problem.
71 in fact.
4:09 AM
And you've answered like 40? (count incoming zombies)
Instead of shooting ammo I have been creating targets.
(how else do you think you hit 3K in a few weeks).
I'd say we should go to SO, steal some COBOL questions (off-topic for here), and post them here anyway.
You guys are begging for things to shoot at ... ;-)
aw crap.
My point is that my hit-rate on creating targes is going to diminish
and i think the same is true for most people.
4:11 AM
Why the heck would you star "lol"? sigh
To get that exaxt effect
^ don't star that
Point is that the zombie hit rate is now hard work, instead of easy pickings.
I guess I may have to start looking at some JavaDeveloper questions at some point too
@rolfl how are JavaDeveloper questions a category of their own?
4:18 AM
With that name you would think .....
well he does ask questions..
but I see lots of questions with 1 answer, about half of 'em are accepted.
He has 48 questions, no answers, no edits.

A: Determining the Factorial and the Summation of numbers till that Number

rolfl45! is a very large number. Your fact is a long, but long is not large enough to hold the value... 44! = 2673996885588443136 Long.MAX_VALUE = 9223372036854775807 Multiplying 44! by 45 will overflow the long.... which is exactly what you see: 45! = -8797348664486920192 ...

There is a 'mystery'. ......
Which is far from normal.
@rolfl Wow, cool.
I tested a bit with factorials to see where Double.INFINITY was reached, 171 factorial is infinity, apparently.
But I'm using double of course, not long
Although technically, BigInteger should be used for large calculations like this.
OK, figured it out.
