yeah, now I can vote. And reached +210 yesterday, perfect.
Just never seen that error message before. "vote again just now", lol.
 
hehe true...

@SimonAndréForsberg well that was timely!
hi!
 
@lol.upvote Hi!
 
@rolfl so, today is the day CR sees a monkey with 10K rep?
 
Not unless we downvote him!
 
yeah, let's downvote him back to 3.9K! ...NOT!
 
That's the theory, though I have not done much recently that deserves votes....
 
12:22 AM
let's see what I couldn't vote on...
 
@rolfl Then it's time to do something!
 
@rolfl indeed, not much!
 
Yeah, I'm working on something.....
 
oops, missed one
 
I'm also working on something... refactoring RPSLS.
 
12:30 AM
I think I already have a working "normal" tic-tac-toe, just gotta write a couple tests and I'm posting for review :)
 
Nice.
And then it's just about making it Ultimate, huh?
 
yup
"just that"
 
Piece of cake :)
I have not thought much about how my game model will look like, but I have thought a bit about how my AI will work :)
 
I played the iPhone version earlier today, my AI has to be smarter than that!
 
I don't have an iPhone so I can't try that. I do have Android though, I know there are several implementations of the game but I'm not sure how good they are.
 
12:35 AM
darn. 5 votes left, and I hardly caught up with today's unvoted stuff... there's another dozen answers waiting in the RSS reader..
 
@lol.upvote Perhaps it's time to be more restrictive in how you vote?
 
yeah
I think I'll stop voting for users with >10K rep ;)

A: node.js library for extracting words from a text

JamesI have not used node js. However, I wonder if you could simply use string replace?

NAA
 
FH / FA / FVA / whatever
Flag Handled / Flag Applied / Flag Vote Applied (/whatever, but I think you got that part)
 
Why is codereview.stackexchange.com/a/40565/34757 an answer? It's refusing to do a code review.
 
@ChrisW I disagreed with the flag because to me the answer seems useful. It does point out an important thing / approach regarding performance.
 
@ChrisW it doesn't review the code per se, but does give useful advice to the OP in terms of optimisation, no?
But I agree it's more of a SO-ish answer
 
Note that I say that it is an answer, whether or not it is a review is a different story.
After all, the flag is "Not An Answer", not "Not A Review"
I do think your answer is better though, @ChrisW.
 
12:53 AM
So "Use a profiler!" is a valid answer to any question about performance?
It ought to be a comment, at best.
 
Not necessarily any question. I don't like putting general rules like that. Normally, there are always exceptions.
 
Normally, there are always exceptions. Exceptions are the new norm?
 
But for this specific question, I think it is a valid answer. I do however think that the question itself leaves some things to be desired, especially considering your comment to the question, @ChrisW.
@lol.upvote All swans were white until the black swan in Australia was discovered. I just haven't looked at all swans yet :)

@ChrisW The answer also does mention one possible improvement: "splitting your hard drive into chunks and parallelizing the effort".
Over on StackOverflow, my experience is that even a single attempt at answering the question is an answer. I've flagged for NAA several times which has been declined. Some of them I brought to Meta and then they got handled properly. If you want to discuss this particular flag, my suggestions is: Bring it up on our meta :)

IMO it should be a comment, or a vote to close the question. It's explicitly refusing to do a code review: therefore it's not an on-topic answer for this site.

I agree with @lol.upvote, which might not be so strange since he's actually the one agreeing with me :)

user29214141) The professor called this "not proper pseudo code" and told me to "remove '#'". I'm self taught thus far but I had the understanding that there is no syntax and only serves in design. I use the comments as a guide and to force commenting later on. # @input dist : distance traveled in mile # @...

 
@Jamal It's better...
 
Also: Holy tag badges, Batman!
 
Whoa.
 
@syb0rg: He added some noise at the end, which can be removed. I'm also thinking about the title.
 
@Jamal noise removed; couldn't think of a decent title, feel free to jamalize :)
 
3:57 AM
Looks like a temp converter. The first block of pseudocode apparently has nothing to do with the code.
 
yeah, but "a question with that title already exists"
 
I beg to differ. ;-)
 
oh. that does it :)
 
@Jamal No the pseudocode was from a previous assignment. The OP has has two school assigments, one for pseudocode and another for python.
 
Well, we can't review pseudocode anyway.
 
3:59 AM
The professor complained about the syntax of the pseudocode.
 
we don't review pseudocode
 
Can we allow it once?

I don't do , but it looks reviewable... +1 for removing 6,500+ characters from original post?
 
He first asks if something would cause a trunc error, then I think he wants to know if this is "well-formedness."
 
@lol.upvote Why not? He means well (I think), and was responsive to our comments.
 
As far as he knows it's working code
I'd upvote.. and comment "+1 for removing 6,500+ characters from original post"
 
Probably so. Seems hard to tell for sure. But whatever.

4:07 AM
I've purged the first two comments, now that that is solved.
 
GC
(good call)
...or (garbage collected)
 
That, too. :P
 
@rolfl The overt reason why is that the professor criticized the pseudocode syntax, so the OP would like advice / a second opinion about that. The more important part is the python question. I would like to leave-in the pseudocode for the OP's sake, because it can't be asked elsewhere/separately.
indentation is to show "if" nesting
 
@Chris, but:

# set dist from input "Enter miles traveled: "
# make sure dist is a number, and if not print error and restart
#     if dist is 0.0, print error and restart
#         set guse from input "Enter gas used in gallons: "
#         make sure guse is a number, and if not print error and restart
#             set mpg to dist divided by guse
#             if guse is 0.0, print error and restart
 
that's why we don't review pseudocode. it would get closed as opinion-based!

@rolfl Edited to be more relevant to the actual question asked.
 
@rolfl To an aspiring, socially-insecure, lonely student the word "Brainfuck" might sound like"Codecrap" or whatever. Saying "you're crazy" to a crazy person doesn't help much either: it's not constructive. Their story is off-topic on the main board, but take care to speak gently. Programming is full of in-jokes. Brainfuck is an in-joke. In-jokes can be used to exclude outsiders.

tl;dr: "Bunch of dicks" equals a failed site. It's really as simple as that.

Why do I feel this is being taken out of context and blown out of proportion. None of what you are all suggesting is the intent I had when I wrote the comment.... and, in rereading it, I don't see where I put any personal attack on the person, or even his code. I did say his comments were long, and I am not apologetic for that. Particularly, I feel resentful for the insinuation that I am 'being a dick'. ..... I just don't feel like that's right (normally I know when I am in the wrong).
 
@Jamal Why is my "invalid flag" being disputed?
 
Further, nothing I said is anything like the comments that were removed before I got there....
 
@rolfl I know you didn't intend that. I was worried about what it might have sounded like to the OP.
 
I... forgot the </sarcasm> tag?
 
I assumed they might not understand the joke.

@rolfl Not taking sides or anything, but I could see how @ChrisW thinks that comment was a bit harsh with the tone (especially to a new user, where we have to be more delicate). But I also agree with everything you had to say in your comment, and I didn't feel like it was a personal attack on the OP.
 
My initial comment was dickier than that though
 
@syb0rg: That automatically happens with all invalid flags.
 
@Jamal Is disputed a bad thing?
 
@syb0rg: Not at all.
 
no-op flag, sort of.

Okay, good.
 
Yeah, I'm the happy go lucky monkey, but I genuinely don't try to be mean or nasty, and this discussion snapped me from happy-go-lucky to defensive and serious .... either I did something wrong, and have to learn from it, or I didn't..... right now it's frustrating because I am not sure I did anything 'off', and what to do to correct it (It takes a lot of control to teach an ex-South African monkey to be a well-behaved Canadian citizen).

You're in Ontario, you don't need to be well-behaved :p
 
Anyway, off to bed.... ;-) and I'll talk to you all on the far side of 10K ... ;-)
 
Alright, I think I'm going to call it a night.
 
ciao!

wouldn't that be "entering sleep mode.."?
 
FWIW, .... shutting down the question he stripped 6K words from will be far more of a piss-him-offer than what I said ... just sayin. Too long, too pseudocody, too short, sorry, too crap. on hold.
 
^^ 100% agree

@lol.upvote Hmm, that info message will have to be patched in the next update.
 
@rolfl Sorry for being so Canadian. ;-)
 
You've earned the "Revival" badge for OpenCV Mat processing time. See your profile.
Okay, now I'm really off.

I didn't think you were being mean or are mean. You were care-free or careless; and the OP wasn't care-free. IMO the OP may have no idea what "brainfuck" is, so what could they make of your comment? Nothing good, was my fear. No way to correct it now. Your joke was directed to "us". I had already become "defensive" (of what I imaged are the OP's feelings) when I skimmed the OP's first post. Sorry for that temporary criticism. And I'm glad you have bananas.

Q: Simple MPG calculator in Python

user2921414I am a self taught coder taking a Programming Fundamentals class to work towards a degree. It's based on Python, which I'm not as familiar with as other languages. I added error handling like I would in javascript or php to be an overachiever. Professor gave online feedback (online course) not to...

 
@Jamal reopen?
add ?
 
Alright. We've annoyed him long enough.
 
this kid deserves a badge for his perseverance.
too bad it happened after @syb0rg shut down.
I'm shutting down as well - good night!
I think this hasn't received enough attention:

Q: Must answers include a code review?

ChrisWI'm surprised to ask this but, "Must answers include a Code Review?" I'm looking at this answer. The request in the OP says, Can you please look into my code and suggest me some performance improvement techniques? The answer says, No, it doesn't work like that. ... you should start by...

Good morning everyone.
 
Haven't gone to bed yet. :-P

Oh, you will.
Now I have the same amount of badges as on SO. 3 silver, 24 bronze.
 
Nice!

Morning!
Still awake, @Jamal? :)
