1:00 PM
of course the local map doesn't list useful stuff like "WHERE THE HELL IS THE RELOADING STATION", just a bunch of doors
@StrixVaria Yeah, I really could go without knowing that :P
@badp behind the general store, assuming you're in Goodsprings.
that's an energy station isn't it?
yep, it's the workbench
@badp they should be clustered around the building.
I also plan on buying Dishonored whenever it goes for ~$10.
1:03 PM
oh right. It's the right right next to it, but it seemed like a random assembly of junk from afar
Plus who knows what else I'll impulse buy.
@StrixVaria waiting on this too
...and I still can't repair my rifle
off to the wiki I go
@badp You need either another rifle or a repair kit.
Weapon repairs are like with like for the most part.
doesn't need to be exactly the same gun, but it needs to be a similar gun.
oh, I need an item
1:10 PM
@fbueckert - The rover, and the two surviving wheels on mars.
hmm, I really should have put a docking port on this.
That's huge.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Wow, impressive.
@RedRiderX Soon Ira Glass will see blood seeping under his front door.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Now that would be an interesting episode.
Also: Who knew that Cthulhu's world domination would take the form of a comedy podcast?
1:17 PM
> You have spent approximately $34.65 USD in the store since the sale began.
> You have spent approximately $47.15 USD in the store since the sale began.
Apparently only counts in $, not €
Where is this magic number?
@John Go to the page for the Summer sale badge and click "How do I earn cards" I think.
1:20 PM
@TrentHawkins Why do you have so many ASAS? You only need one, and you have that on your sky crane.
Found it.
> You have not purchased anything on the store since the sale began.
There's a lot of zeroes on that page.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I only got halfway through on the drive here.
Good morning, Bridge
@fbueckert Hellos!
@FAE You're in a good mood, it seems!
1:23 PM
@fbueckert I had a nice weekend. :)
@FAE Always a good thing.
Hmmm, I still can't find that page, but I think I've spent... $25? There about
@fbueckert Indeed!
@OrigamiRobot wasn't announced in the episode.
@PrivatePansy In the dropdown from your name, click "Badges".
1:24 PM
30 mins ago, by LessPop_MoreFizz
> Oh, and I guess the word is out now, so I can say here that the guest star from later this summer will be Jasika Nicole, aka Astrid from Fringe.
@MBraedley I dunno, partly for the symmetry, partly because the damn thing shakes apart without them ontop of the large fuel tanks. shrug
Then on the Steam Summer Getaway badge, you'll see on the right "How can I earn more cards?" Click that and you'll get a popup.
> You have spent approximately $23.50 USD in the store since the sale began.
@TrentHawkins You really don't need the fins on the second outer stage. They'll actually make the rocket less stable since you're pushing the centre of lift higher, closer to the centre of gravity.
I'm just gonna sell my cards after the sale ends.
1:29 PM
@OrigamiRobot prices have crashed atm, so yeah.
@PrivatePansy I...have spent more than that, apparently. >_> <_<
@LessPop_MoreFizz I was always going to wait till they were otherwise unobtainable anyway.
@fredley I'm so popular.
@OrigamiRobot Pity you're not famous
@fredley Well to be fair, the original data entries had various formats.
1:32 PM
@RedRiderX You guys might just be running on older versions.
Q: What is the best way to defend White Forst in Half-Life 2: Episode Two?

ChrisI always have a hard time defending the White Forest base against the oncoming Striders and Hunters. My problem is that I cannot kill the Striders as long as the Hunters are alive as they always shoot the Magnusson Devices before I can attach them to the Strider or before I can shoot them to blow...

@OrigamiRobot Just asserting you are famous does not make you famous.
By that metric I am supreme ruler of the universe
Mar 15 '12 at 17:36, by Yi Jiang
@OrigamiRobot No you're not. Now sit down and stop shouting.
@fredley Yes it does. I am famous for claiming to be famous.
@OrigamiRobot Notable != Famous
1:36 PM
Mar 8 at 16:37, by OrigamiRobot
@fredley Apparently "I'm famous" is not allowed on MSO.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Too famous.
Oh wow, you can RSSify any search
That is a very handy feature
*Heads off to IFTTT*
IF @OrigamiRobot says famous THEN send email to [redacted] contents: YOU'RE NOT FAMOUS SHUT UP
Inc. @OrigamiRobot changing his catchphrase to "I'm Renowned!"
Sure is a lot of talk about such a non-famous robot...
Now would be a great time to talk about how famous @OrigamiRobot is
1:47 PM
@fredley Only if there's a script that auto-emails him whenever "@OrigamiRobot" and "famous" are in the same sentence.
@fbueckert I could quite easily make one and run it as a cron
I think @OrigamiRobot @Lazers is the most famous robot on The Bridge.
@Wipqozn I think @lazers is more famous tbqh.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Oh, right.
1:55 PM
This will become a famous clbuttic incident.
A: How can I find my steam ID?

user51895Here's an alternative Steam ID Finder. It can do more things than just finding a Steam ID. It can also estimate the age of private accounts and keeps track of how many people have searched for each Steam profile.

Does anyone know why this is marked as spam?
@badp How is @OrigamiRobot ever part of a longer word?
@Mana My guess is that is a shifty looking link.
@Wipqozn How am I supposed to tell how shifty this is without entering in my Steam ID?
1:57 PM
@OrigamiRobot Pics or it didn't happen.
@Mana Ask someone else here for their Steam ID and use that one ;-)
@Mana No idea. The link just looks shifty. I'm not even going to visit it.
looking at the site page, I mean...it seems fine.
@OrigamiRobot Look at all these people emailing you. You must be famous.
1:58 PM
@StrixVaria Post must include the word famous, and mention @OrigamiRobot
@Mana Some people in here last night were talking about it showing information about private accounts and them not wanting to endorse that, but I don't think that makes it spam.
@fredley I realized that shortly after.
@OrigamiRobot is not famous.
@TimStone why would they downvote over an obscure reason like that and not at least leave a comment?
Iunno, wasn't me. :P
1:59 PM
@Mana Because that would just lead to drama?
@fredley inorite
I can just imagine that going down terribly.
"I disagree with your ethics"
@Mana This is why I'm a mod on Stack Apps, where there are no people. Only scripts.
@OrigamiRobot I don't know what I expected.
2:00 PM
@Wipqozn ...:( somehow I think that giving an answer that seems perfectly fine four downvotes and marking it as spam without a comment is prone to causing more drama
@Mana It's also a user without a username. That just makes it more suspect.
ooooh you combine things together to repair them. makes sense
@Arperum the ITTT recipe probably emails that famous bloke that's @fredley
if he even created one
@Mana I checked out the link, and it seems fine to me.
I don't get why it's downvoted.
@badp For that reason I was suspecting @OrigamiRobot to just be playing it. The count was slightly wrong too. So I asked for proof, expecting to get some very extremely forged proof.
2:08 PM
@TimStone How does that even work?
@OrigamiRobot Those could be the wisest words you've ever spoken.
@fredley Hmm?
@TimStone Do scripts vote for modraters?
@OrigamiRobot @John get a room you two
2:11 PM
@fredley I wasn't exactly elected. :P
@fredley I have a room
@TimStone You just abuse your way into power?
Multiple rooms.
Something like that.
Q: Does trading Pokemon that evolves on trade give both Pokedex entries?

RapidaI'm in the process of filling in my Pokedex in Black 2/White 2 so this question is mostly concerned with the fifth generation. I was wondering if I could trade over a Pokemon (say Haunter) and get an entry in my Pokedex for Haunter and Gengar?

2:13 PM
@fredley We've got one. We call it "The Bridge." But there's always these creepy people around watching us, though >.>
@John ಠ‿ಠ
howdy bridge!
@ShotgunNinja Hiya!
@fredley Someone said "Why the hell is Tim Stone not yet a mod on Stack Apps", and SE seemed to agree
2:21 PM
Joe Fink is quitting his job to do Night Vale full time. THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A TOUR IN THE FALL.
@LessPop_MoreFizz How will the guy eat or buy gas?
Also, is it that popular?

@OrigamiRobot I can't see imgur links...
Stupid work firewall T~T
@ShotgunNinja rdp
@ShotgunNinja It's #2 on iTunes for Top Audio Podcasts
2:24 PM
@OrigamiRobot I only have a laptop at home, and I'm not leaving it running or it'd kill itself.
@ShotgunNinja Then you deserve it. Laptops are the worst.
@OrigamiRobot Dude, I have to pay ridiculous rent, gas, parking, and so on. I don't have the money put away to buy a desktop PC.
@FAE behind only This American Life!
My rent is $1550/month split three ways.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I don't know what that is, but uh, yay!
2:27 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz So a fake conspiracy channel behind a real one?
@ShotgunNinja Laptops are more expensive than desktops.
@ShotgunNinja That is not ridiculous rent.
@OrigamiRobot It is for my pay grade.
Also, my laptop is provided by my school.
Unless you're also splitting one bedroom three ways.
@OrigamiRobot Actually, why am I making excuses? I don't have a desktop because I don't fucking want one right now.
Not lack of money or anything.
I rarely use my computer at home anyway.
@ShotgunNinja Like I said, you deserve it.
2:30 PM
@OrigamiRobot Well piss off then. I'm in a grumpy mood today, and I don't need you criticizing my life choices.
@ShotgunNinja He's not being serious, just silly.
@FAE But still. I'm quite irritable at the moment. Lots of things are happening all at once in my life, and I'm on the edge of snapping.
@ShotgunNinja If you're irritable, I suggest not being in here :3
This room is to be taken with a light heart.
@John And rather thick skin.
@John Or no heart at all!
2:32 PM
This is true.
The best solution is to be a robot.
lol, all right
Blanket statement.
that being said, I'm content with my 3DS and my laptop.
@ShotgunNinja Honestly, John's advice isn't bad. Take a break from here and do something for yourself and try to de-stress a little.
2:33 PM
Boredom causes Photoshop
I apologise for the following
user image
@FAE Drinking works. So does dancing. Put them together, and they're even more effective!
wtf? a flame thrower?
@fredley Make @fbueckert the raven.
@FAE basically, This American Life is the most popular show on American public radio by an order if magnitude.
2:34 PM
@fbueckert I have some alcohol at home, I'll get to it after work.
and now I must start the Whole place from scratch
@OrigamiRobot Didn't even see the Raven
Ahahaha, I woke up Cthulhu in Scribblenauts and the first thing he does is murder me so fast I didn't even have time to react
Surely @RavenDreamer should be the Raven?
@PrivatePansy adjectives are your friend
2:35 PM
@fredley No, he is a shark.
@fbueckert Possibly depends on how well you can dance!
@LessPop_MoreFizz Oooh, okay
Huh, the gender of the characters in each level is randomized
@PrivatePansy lol
The genders changed when I reset the level
@PrivatePansy You cannot comprehend its true gender.
2:38 PM
@PrivatePansy Ram him with a boat. That might give you time to escape.
@OrigamiRobot oooh shiny
> There was a bursting as of an exploding bladder, a slushy nastiness as of a cloven sunfish, a stench as of a thousand opened graves, and a sound that the chronicler would not put on paper.
2:53 PM
Oh,who did you upload the photo so i can so you what i mean — Mr.Crazy1234 41 secs ago
@fredley Huh?
Q: Can't login with the 1.6 Minecraft launcher

Mr.Crazy1234When I open my 1.6 Minecraft launcher, below my username it has only got the Log Out option. Can someone tell my why that is?

@Unionhawk so i can so you what i mean
@Lazers @Unionhawk This question
The mermaid asked for a gizmo from above the surface. I gave her a cellphone, which she immediately used to electrocute me and herself
2:55 PM
@fbueckert I understand the question, but I don't understand what the hell he's even trying to say.
Er, I think he means to say "so I can show you what I mean"
But, either way
@Unionhawk I think it's supposed to be, "How did you upload the photo? I want to upload one so I can show you what I mean."
@Unionhawk I still can't work out what he means though.
@fbueckert That's what I got.
Oh, wh- at site did you upload the photo to, so i can do the same, so you know what i mean.
What do you mean a link ? — Mr.Crazy1234 16 secs ago
Head through keyboard. Give up.
@fredley Yup. User can't internet.
2:59 PM
Goddammit, why is my internet slow this morning?
@Unionhawk NSA spies
Every time the internet is slow it's because they're watching you that much more closely
254 ms ping, 0.19 Down/0.56 Up. That is absolutely atrocious.
am I supposed to write a very small Python script to do the hacking sections in FO:NV? :D
@Mr.Crazy1234 The syntax and semantics of web links are fully explained in RFC 5988 - Web Linking. — fredley 5 secs ago
@fredley That's evil.
I wholeheartedly approve.
3:04 PM
Proposed Meta Post: "What do we do with people who are just too dumb to use the site?"
@fredley Proposed Answer: We take them out back and put them out of their misery.
something like
def distance(a,b):
  distance = 0
  if a == b: return -1
  return sum(1 for al,bl in zip(a,b) if al == bl)

def refine(candidates, wrong_pw, correct_letters):
  return list(filter(lambda x: distance(wrong_pw, x) == correct_letters, candidates))
Only two packs of sour skittles left. :(
Look im 10 years old and im from Greece so i cant unterstand whatever you are saying — Mr.Crazy1234 1 min ago
now I should also make it give me a good first guess for the passwords
3:06 PM
Look im 10 years old and im from Greece so i cant unterstand whatever you are saying — Mr.Crazy1234 1 min ago
And gone!
@fbueckert Too young to SE?
@fbueckert oh dear
> No one under the age of 13 may provide any personal information to or on Stack Exchange (including, for example, a name, address, telephone number or email address).
@fredley COPPA requires 13+
3:07 PM
Time to fire up the user Burnination Lazer
@badp ^^
We need special lazers I don't have
I'm asking the certified crew to aim them
@badp You mean the laywer-approved nukes
Out of curiosity, isn't there something you have to agree to that says you're 13 or older when you ask your first question/register?
@MadScientist Nukes with a lawyer-fortified warhead.
@fbueckert No. You just can't set your age to that in the profile
3:10 PM
@fbueckert Either way, kids don't care...
@badp Surely you have to agree to the TOS somewhere?
That's like saying that kids care about mature ratings on games, and nope.
@Unionhawk They don't, but the people selling them the game do.
Out of curiosity, would OAuth comply with COPPA by abstracting any personal identification behind the OAuth login?
3:12 PM
@fbueckert He isn't saying we shouldn't care.
@fbueckert True, but that's like saying the site cares if you're under 13, but the kid under 13 doesn't care and (should) (shouldn't but they do) lie about their age
@Unionhawk There's only so much a site can do. If they lie, there's nothing we can do about it.
It's an American law, that children under 13's personal information can't be recorded. Rather than work some convoluted scheme to cater to that, most websites just go, "Can't be under 13 to use this site."
@fbueckert True.
It's the law. You'll understand when you grow up. — The Annoying Pyro 40 secs ago
@fredley That was great.
3:14 PM
Are you freaking kiding me? Now i will never get an awnser! — Mr.Crazy1234 2 mins ago
And burninated.
...Huh. That linked.
Strictly speaking, there is no technical reason for @fredley's answer to be wrong (damn enter key)
@Unionhawk eh?
@Unionhawk I agree. Let's all downvote it.
Bets on a new user called Mr.Crazy12345 asking the exact same question?
@fbueckert We were quite harsh. I doubt it.
@fredley promptly downvotes
3:17 PM
@fredley I tried to be as friendly as I could.
But, hey, welcome to the internet!
Leave your sensitivity at the door!
@fbueckert I couldn't be bothered
> put on hold as unclear what you're asking by jmfsg♦ 10 secs ago
Wasn't that fun
@BoltClock Call my crazy, but I think you could have just deleted the question @jmfsg.
It sure was
3:23 PM
Dems the breaks.
@Wipqozn Yeah.
@Wipqozn meh, ok
@jmfsg The account wasn't deleted after all.
@Wipqozn That crazy @jmfsg. Always wrecking things.
But please don't ban me for questioning your judgement, Lord @jmfsg.
3:25 PM
I don't ban, I outright delete
I feel like watching Wreck it Ralph now.
Aww. Did I miss the user burnation?
That was actually a pretty solid movie.
Damn right.
@jmfsg In Game of Mods, you are Joffrey.
3:26 PM
@Wipqozn It's always a good time to watch Wreck it Ralph.
@fredley Low blow man, low blow.
I saw Pacific Rim last night. The lady that voiced the Robot AI is the voice actress that did the voice of GLADOS in Portal.
Oh my, a Dune reference in Scribblenauts
3:27 PM
New task: assign all Bridge regulars to GoM roles
A sandworm that coughs up spice
@tombull89 I kept waiting for her to betray everyone.
@tombull89 It's a Cameo by GLaDOS itself
not just the actress :)
Yep, they specifically asked Valve for the filters used for the GLaDOS voice.
They got them, then tweaked them a bit.
@MartinSojka Source?
(Just out of curiosity, not doubting it.)
3:36 PM
... among a thousand other hits you get for "valve glados pacific rim"
@MartinSojka Touche.
It still kind of bothers me that the Ratchet & Clank tags are rnc-*, but it's a shame that ratchet-and-clank take up so many characters
And that you can't have ampersands in tag names so r&c-* doesn't work
@BoltClock Jax and Daxter > Ratchet ad Clank. =P
Unicorns should never, ever be starred.
3:41 PM
@Fluttershy I take umbrage
Jak and Daxter > Sly Cooper > Ratchet and Clank. :D
@BoltClock Also, it looks kinda like mc-* ...
@Fluttershy It's the other way around for me
@MartinSojka McUpYourArsenal
@BoltClock Sly Cooper still in the middle though?
@MartinSojka Such poor keming?
3:43 PM
@Fluttershy I guess
I've actually never played Ratchet and Clank outside of a demo, so that could be the source of my bias.
I know Tools of Destruction (the first PS3 game) had a demo but I don't know about the rest
@BoltClock PS2, and it was one of those demo discs that came with like... Electronic Gaming Monthly, or some other video game magazine.
Also, @Sterno, it's a good thing Celestia's an alicorn then! Stars for Alicorns!
Ah, cool. I didn't know they had demos for the PS2 games either
Then again why should I be surprised? Going Commando has a Sly 2 demo built right into it
That said, I'd love to get a PS3 and actually play J&D, SC (again), and R&C (for the first time).
Been at work for all of 45 minutes and I'm already bored...
3:48 PM
@PrivatePansy I hate you.
@OrigamiRobot Kerning, Keming, Kerning, Keming, Kerning, Keming, Keming, Keming
@fredley Nah, you're fine.
Yay for good kerning!
@Fluttershy Alicorns aren't real. Unlike unicorns and Bigfoot, which are totally real.
3:57 PM
Librarians are also real. And they. Are. Terrifying.
