@syb0rg the effect is awesome though
 
@Mat'sMug Yeah, I just need to figure out how to speed it up. I tried a few things before but none of them gave the result I wanted.

Q: Tired of FizzBuzz yet?

PhrancisThere have been many FizzBuzz questions lately, and here is one more! Granted, it is pretty straightforward to do FizzBuzz with SQL using calculations. So instead, I'm going to do a FizzBuzz which will not only be functional, but demonstrate some of the core functions of SQL in general and MySQL...

 
I better toss Dagg some votes for being so helpful.

@Mat'sMug is this overkill? lol
 
@Mat'sMug Well, I sped up the animation, but it still is appearing above all of the text.
 
@Phrancis just a tiny little bit ;)
 
I just ran it over 100,000 numbers instead of 100 and exec in 3.5 sec
 
12:33 AM
My poor little brain is all fizzbuzzed.
Speaking of, when are we going to see your FiM++ fizzbuzz @Mat'sMug? =P

@ckuhn203 when I know that the code works! ;)
 
@Phrancis You're making me want to make my Brainfuck code more flexible.

FizzPlop ... sounds dirty...
 
@ckuhn203 I feel like posting a selfie.. but I'll wait if you're on it. are you?
 
Not any time soon. Go for it.
I think I've decided that I hate VBA and am now in love with my brackets and semicolons.
 
1:08 AM
that didn't take too long ;)
 
It's weird seeing you write in a modern style in vba @Mat'sMug. Every time I go to say "don't do that", I stop and go... Yeah. Vba sucks.
 
..don't do what?
 
The one line if statements bother me, but I get it and they're not abusive.
 
yeah.. I just can't convince myself to go If {condition} Then {newline} Exit Sub {newline} End If
maybe I should
 
Some of them get a bit long maybe. Maybe it just weirds me out that there's no End If. Seriously, there's nothing wrong with it.
 
1:14 AM
hey @jt0dd
 
hey
 
Do you have your StringFormat code posted anywhere? I'd really like to steal use that.
 
your meta posts remind me of when I started being active on CR :)
 
Haha nice
 
@Mat'sMug He's had 3 in a row, formatted just the way you format yours.
@jt0dd Welcome back btw

@ckuhn203 of course!

Q: How can I get rid of SELECT...CASE and GOTO in this string formatting helper function?

Mat's MugA while ago I implemented .net's string.Format() method in VB6; it works amazingly well, but I'm sure there has to be a way to make it more efficient. I'll start by listing a simple class called EscapeSequence: Private Type tEscapeSequence EscapeString As String ReplacementString As Str...

 
You rock cuz. Thanks!
 
Thnx
 
I'd recommend grabbing the long-winded mega-function with GOTO's though
(the object-oriented version does perform better, but requires a truckload of classes!)
 
I once saw a professor use a goto unnecessarily. I lost a bit of respect for him after that.

Q: 1000 days in beta: let's make CR t-shirts

Mat's MugAs of 2013-09-05, Area 51 stats for CodeReview are as follows: Days in beta: 960. Questions per day: 19.4. Healthy at 15, need work at 5. Check. Answered Questions: 89%. Healthy at 90%.

1:18 AM
I saw that one
 
wow so you actually scraped the meta site? :D
 
Lol, it was a top post
 
@jt0dd So you know who @rob0t is?
 
I like the Code Approved one
Nope
 
Ahh, so you didn't read every question on meta then :)
 
1:21 AM
Noope. I try and look at the big stuff. Browsed a bit
 
it's great to see some nice activity from newer members, I'm sure SE noticed.
wow, looking back at the 1000 days post...
> Visits per Day: 8,064
 
SE actually does browse the crap out of Meta
 
front page:
> 22,237 visitors/day
 
Dang. Nice numbers
 
> Questions per day: 19.4
Area51:
> 30.1
 
1:24 AM
That's weak, right? 20Qs per day?
 
we've grown so much in a year!
a site is deemed healthy at 15
 
Hmm.. cool
 
I'd venture to say it's better than most beta sites :)
 
I don't think we could support much more than 20 questions a day currently.
Maybe I'm wrong though.
 
without growing a zombie population?
we've been ~30 Q/day for quite a while now
 
1:26 AM
I've been zombie hunting the JS Queue. I'm working on a good one now, asked on the 16th
 
JavaDeveloper hasn't been helping with that number either.
 
And keeping the zombies at bay. Holding steady at around 770 or so.
 
There are 770 Zombs?
 
@syb0rg but his questions generated answers that generated quite some rep!
 
I seriously might deign a zombie hunter shirt for SE and submit it via meta..
Graphic Designer ftw

1:27 AM
yes!
 
@Mat'sMug True, but he seriously needs to become a reviewer.
 
btw, day 1049:
17.8 Q's, 12.8K visitors
 
I'm generating a JSON structure for a 1MB 100,000+ English word list right now, anyone know a good place for me to share it?
It's in associative format to be referenced very fast. I can't believe one didn't exist anywhere already.. Like.. You can't check whether or not a word exists without this..
 
@jt0dd you never know, the crazy folks at SE could very well print it and give one to all top users after graduation!
hmm.. GitHub?
 
774 at the moment @jt0dd
 
1:31 AM
A data set on GitHub? I guess I could pair it with a few functions
 
make a web service?
 
@jt0dd I've seen it before.
 
@Mat'sMug This guy talks about it, his article is linked all over related SE Qs: ejohn.org/blog/dictionary-lookups-in-javascript
 
interesting
 
I'm using his solution more or less. If you could see my solution for generating the JSON.. The programming gods would be furious
 
1:40 AM
hehe.. put it up for review?
 
Have a look: I'm running this loop with a 50ms delay to keep the page from crashing, but what's more insane is that I'm generating the JSON onto the document body
I might, just for fun.
 
x.x
Since it's a one off script, why not just build up a dictionary and JSON.stringify?
 
I've been running that page for 30 minutes.. It's still in the A's
 
I also would do it in something other than a web browser.... :p
 
@Corbin because it's 100,000+ items
I know xD I was too lazy to run it in Node
 
1:44 AM
So? You're just using this to generate the JSON, correct?
 
But yes, with 100,000 items, the page crashes using JSON.Stringify
Yep
 
Then again, I suppose no reason to use twice as much time and 100,000 times the memory.
Yeah, you'd likely have to get into node

Q: Consolidate/Optimize these functions

user2867494I have this code to check a couple conditions before allowing a play button from becoming visible. Is there anything to do to consolidate this code, possibly shrink it down some? var isNodeWebkit = (typeof process == "object"); // check if using node app var downloadURL = 'https://www.microsoft....

 
Yep. I'll try and see if Node can beast through it.
another thing, @Corbin , is that I haven't worked with writing to files with Node.
 
@jt0dd Looks like that question ^^^ is calling your name @jt0dd
 
1:54 AM
Though I was too lazy to have it write back out, so you would just redirect it into a file (i.e. node blah.js > file.json)
Also, I take no responsibility for the quality of that code. No idea what the node norms are. Just went for the first thing that came to mind :p
 
@Corbin Nice!

Q: Advice needed in refactoring/cleaning up my javascript code

angstdI am fairly new to Javascript. I have written a website that works as designed. However, I have a strong feeling that my code could be heavily refactored. Can anyone see anything, besides line spacing, that I could do to clean up my code? var i1 = document.createElement("img"); var i2 = document...

 
2:10 AM
^^^^ needs a patient reviewer.
 
And more context for a better title.
 
I was thinking the same
the 'working code' link does not have images working
I thought that would be useful for a decent title.
but no joy
 
@syb0rg I'm working on a review for that one
First of all, I'm suggesting that he never think the string "Silverlight" again. Then I'm suggesting a few optimizations and simplifications. Mostly looks good
But man... silverlight...
 
@rolfl And I guess more title filters won't help.
 
Has anyone seen WebGL? It makes Silverlight unnecessary.
It's incredible.. We can now build Photoshop and all Adobe-level tools in the browser, believe it or not.
The world is going web. You C and Java guys have about 30 years left in your line of work, so start working with JS.. (Or retire by then)
 
2:18 AM
Hey @all
 
@jt0dd that is a sweeping, generalised statement, that people like me have been hearing for 25 years already
 
@jt0dd I certainly hope that isn't true; even though I could see that happening.
 
Not going to happen, not everyone has access to the "web" (although they have a computer)
 
more importantly, why will the web have a browser, and why will it be running javascript?
 
What if JavaScript gets pushed away and some new language is made that just blows everyone away!
 
2:23 AM
Screw JavaScript. FiM++ will become the next best thing!
4
 
@jt0dd operating systems and web browsers will be written in JS? That will be an interesting day indeed.
 
@Jamal you soooo beat me to it by a mere split second!
 
@jt0dd that's pitiful, of course you can do that.... ;-) Have you seen that you can run a complete (modern) OS in javascript? linux.slashdot.org/story/13/11/12/161227/…
 
Oh @Mat'sMug, don't suppose you got the interpreter up and running!?
 
nope
haven't tried actually

A: Checking conditions before allowing a play button to become visible

jt0ddOk first of all.. AHHH. Silverlight. Silverlight was a flop. WebGL, on the other hand, is the future of handling anything that anyone ever thought Silverlight might do. If you want to maintain highly supported, future-proof practices, start doing some WebGL research. It's INCREDIBLE. Silverlight...

 
@jt0dd I go back to before the web, when archie, veronica, bbs, and gopher were hip
The web is fleeting
 
@rolfl I'm interested, what do you mean?
 
the web is what, 20 years old? and it is already web 2.0 ....
Things like apps, google glass, and other mediums are going to make browser-based systems obsolete at any moment
 
Oh, that type of web. I thought you meant the internet was fleeting.
 
Well, the internet is at risk as well
 
2:58 AM
@rolfl At risk of being replaced by what? People are addicted to communicating?
 
in it's current format, well, I suspect that IP6 will throw some curve-balls, but, the internet will become compartamentalized
laws, and cultures are going to fragment and silo some things
 
@rolfl They already are!
 
The concept of youtube not playing your video because you are in the wrong country.... that's going to increase

I've looked at it and tried to decide whether I should look again.
then I decided that it was a crazy abuse of a tool that was not designed for the purpose.

Yay! Our meta tag query is empty.
 
Do I need to add some tags to it?
 
I don't think so. I'm just looking at , and it's small enough to clean up by itself. Are there any other tags we're considering burninating?
 
Well, I added some anyway, and I can remove them again
wrong
 
Yeah, the three "Database Design Review" are the most problematic ones. The single one with may be okay.

@chillworld Hell no.
@Vogel612 Happens when you are behind on the news, etc. and end up reading it for 2 hours on your tablet in the morning
 
@Vogel This is a usual thing with CSS and naming. For example words are delimited by dashes (e.g. break-word), but there is an exception: nowrap. I consider that a bug.^^
 
gotta love designers choices and their violations...

@Vogel612 Yes it was you! :P
 
@Mat'sMug Probably . I don't want to know.
@skiwi Yeah, today wasn't my earliest day...
Hey @kleinfreund
So many things I should do today...
 
hehe
 
@rolfl I don't know any programs worth converting to PHP.
 
I could write the custom log appender today somewhere
Heh, I don't get this:
/**
 * Sets the item to the given value - should not be called directly as the
 * item is managed by the virtualized control.
 */
public final void setItem(T value) { item.set(value); }
You should not call the method, and you cannot override it, why is it public then?
 
@skiwi Because there is some other package somewhere that needs to call it?
 
10:29 AM
this seems to need a design choice rethink...
 
Could be, I solve those things maybe a bit dirty with using reflectio from time to timen
 
Finally someone steps up to do more than two words. Next we need to have a rule for primes, rules that apply when N appears as a factor OR a digit, repetition of words when a rule applies more than once to a number, etc. At least you have a design that might be extensible enough! — David K 4 hours ago

Guess... I am an expert now?
 
Expert API?
Or is it a typo of Export?
 
Nope, Expert
 * <p>It is <strong>very important</strong> that subclasses
 * of Cell override the updateItem method properly, as failure to do so will
 * lead to issues such as blank cells or cells with unexpected content
 * appearing within them. Here is an example of how to properly override the
 * updateItem method:
Ah... that is why I had cells randomly appearing yesterday in my tables.
I figured without the documentation that I wasn't properly handling the empty parameter of the override
Ah, it even provides a blueprint of how to override it
Leads me to wonder why they didn't call this method then updateItemInternal, and provided a public updateItem to be modified

Q: C - Mapping enum to function

PimgdI'm writing code for an embedded device - specifically, a camera. The idea is different camera manufacturers can implement the code so it properly works with their camera. Here, I'm encapsulating the request/response library we're using, because it's complicated to deal with, and we want to use ...

 
I should also read the documentation after finding an SO answer.
 
I hope such a question is allowed here because I'm feeling it's a really easy question that should belong on SO

oh yeah, I forgot, capt posts the questions
derp
 
@Pimgd I think it's a good question, lots of background as well.
Doesn't mean that it would be invalid on SO though
 
10:38 AM
Yeah, but on SO I think I would get "No, such a thing is not possible without doing either of the things you mentioned" and then I'm like "okay... " and I have the feeling the scope of this site will lead to more varied answers "no, but what you could do..."
 
I just hope the code is of real high quality (still need to read it thoroughly), when it is going to end up in real devices ultimately.
 
this reminds me of how you can abuse java enums...
 
I wish it was java, I'd just use HashMap
 
chillworld had that zk-mapping question a while back.
 
Hey, amon is back! (but not in chat)
 
10:39 AM
@Pimgd then you still have the mem-footprint problem..
at least for the RAM. It's easier to have static mappings in ROM.
 
That code definitely needs Java, for enum mappings.
 
@Pimgd: C and C++? Can't you decide for one?
 
It's compiled as C++ for now. But I'm writing it C style because it will be C later on. But since I'm testing on Win32 I have to compile as C++, cause the win32 adapter for the library we're using is in C++... and it's in source, not a binary.
 
Oh @Pimgd, just now I notice it is your code :P
Does ANSI C mean that you cannot use any of the std::array, std::vector, etc., etc. classes?
 
The C standard library is the standard library for the C programming language, as specified in the ANSI C standard. It was developed at the same time as the C POSIX library, which is a superset of it. Since ANSI C was adopted by the International Organization for Standardization, the C standard library is also called the ISO C library. The C standard library provides macros, type definitions, and functions for tasks like string handling, mathematical computations, input/output processing, memory allocation and several other operating system services. == Application programming interface == ��3...

I would so want to provide proper commit messages, etc. at work, but since I need to use VPN and no issue tracker at the moment the commits happen like every few days with "New working build.", it makes me a bit sad.
 
certain things yes, certain things no
I don't know if std::array and std::vector are included in that
actually
std vector is c++
that's not gonna work in c
 
@jt0dd Ever heard of Google Web Toolkit (GWT) ?
 
Should I just remove the C++ tag? It could be complicating the question too much
 
@skiwi I tend to forget to make a commit after I have made changes, so I often do not remember what I actually have changed.

Q: Selenium java: errorRecovery

ApjuhI have the following code to select an image using Selenium, only now i have added an errorRecovery and my question is if there is a better way to wright the code in the catch. public static void selectHeader() { try { WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 20); w...

 
10:49 AM
Hmmh, I just removed the C++ tag since people will just get confused otherwise
time for lunch =D
 
@SimonAndréForsberg You can always look back at your changes and see what you have changed... Though it makes only sense if the commit messages are actually being looked into, and that is just not going to happen with how SVN is set up at work.

A: Selenium java: errorRecovery

skiwiJudging by the overall structure it looks quite good, I would change a few things though with respect to formatting: Your public static void selectHeader() { line seems to be off, might've been due to putting the code here, you should remove 4 blanks. Take as example this line: wait.until(Expe...

 
dat insta-answer.....
 
@Vogel612 Later your question will be eaten, if not by others...
 
which question of mine?
 
@skiwi Yes I know, there is always git diff. I tend to not care enough about the commit messages as I'm mostly using it just for myself.

@Vogel612 The one you just posted
