9:00 PM
i could hear loud laughter in the office from that
 
OK, this is going well
 
going so well
 
Anonymous
o.O
 
And me!
 
You guys might need to invest some of that $40mil in one of those fancy red lights that says whether you're on air or not.
 
9:00 PM
Eh
 
can i still talk about Wave in other rooms
 
For $40mm, you'd think someone would be feeding you dates, not eating chips out of a bag.
 
Hi
 
<---- Non employee
 
Eating chips out of a bag like an animal
 
9:00 PM
hey @BrentOzar !
 
bah, now I want chips.
 
Well, I'm an employee, but not of any related places
 
Howdy sir!
 
And get zip-lock backs for the crisps... the crinkling....
 
I have your christmas card RIGHT NEXT TO ME NOW
 
9:00 PM
Who's on air
 
Hey - congrats on the round :)
 
@BrentOzar peeled grapes
 
Can I have a dollar?
2
 
Not employee!
 
9:01 PM
@KasraRahjerdi Howdy there.
@Shog9 Exactly.
 
@Jhawins Alex, Joel, David, Jay
 
Question: so, after this round, did you dance around the office singing, "If I had a million dollars..."
2
 
/me is here
 
Just start reciting Pi
 
So what are you going to do with the money?
 
9:02 PM
I went up to the roof, singing "If I was a rich man" - remote work, amirite?
 
Are the vicious rumours that you're merging with EE true?
2
 
@Laura what are their respective screen names? I have no idea who these people are aside from Joel
 
I can tell they've been prepping this for weeks. Precision of a swiss watch
 
< me. I am one
 
@rlemon Alex Miller, David Fullerton, Jaydles.
 
9:03 PM
^ that one
 
These podcasts always suffer some terrible disaster involving cabling when they're prepared. Hence, no preparation.
 
I just got a call from a telemarketer how should I answer it?
 
@AlexMiller and @Jaydles are the others
 
Anonymous
Oh jeeze.
 
@DavidFullerton I don't believe you, can I get a wave on screen as proof? ;)
 
9:04 PM
@Undo Ask for their home phone number.
 
ah crap they hung up
 
@Undo Quick, Undo!
 
Anonymous
It's been over three years!
 
So much star activity.
 
let's get Jay to talk about the Be Nice Policy again
3
 
9:04 PM
You get them to hang up on you @Undo?
 
Simulcast in living color
 
@Bart My answering machine did.
 
A lot of telemarketers are not allowed to hang up, actually.
 
What's the over/under on how long it takes Joel to start talking about his time at the bakery?
3
 
@KasraRahjerdi no time I have like an hour of material on tee shirt material.
 
9:05 PM
Is everyone in the office looking at the podcast now giggling?
 
So you can really mess with telemarketers by just leaving your phone off the hook when they're on the line.
 
@bjb568 clearly we can blame the Sumo Judge hat for that
 
Damn hats.
 
@Retsam Remember the Be Nice Policy.
 
but but this is my first podcast!
I don't get the jokes!
 
9:06 PM
@rlemon still pines for SoL
</superfan>
 
@m0sa Can't help but star that
 
@AlexMiller and i are collecting questions for our hosts, so ask away - and star the ones you want to see answered!
3
 
@MichaelKjörling I wasn't advocating doing that. Just, uhh, pointing out the possibility.
 
i.imgur.com/6NRSnj6.png I think it's a dog // relevant
 
Yes. Thank you, @DavidGreenley!
 
9:07 PM
Don't forget the <img> tag
 
our hosts are @JoelSpolsky, @DavidFullerton, and @Jaydles; plus producer @AlexMiller and editor @DavidGreenley
 
when are we going to see a StackOverflow/StackExchange browser?
 
anyone else claiming involvement is an IMPOSTOR
oh and me
i'm involved too
 
does /needz moar work here?
 
is @Jaydles surfing Tumblr?
 
9:08 PM
needz moar help
 
@rlemon do we really need a search function that replies "unclear what you're asking"?
 
@Sklivvz no
 
@Sklivvz no
 
YEAH
 
SKITTLES!
 
9:08 PM
WOOO
 
M&Ms!
 
@SomeKittens you are so cool
 
@abbyhairboat When will we be able to convert reputation to beer?
 
@Bart No, auto-bot. Since no questions are ever clear enough.
 
9:08 PM
I still have a bunch of unicorn dollars from...something. I don't know why I got those
 
How will this affect the sites?
9
 
If I get those emails, I will ask Abby to send you $1 worth of spiders
 
Are you going to start a unicorn ranch with the money?
 
How will this affect the poor CSS?
 
Anonymous
@JoelSpolsky When does the paywall arrive?
 
9:09 PM
Don't forget to mention that, with this investment, Stack Overflow will now only support the Netscape Browser.
6
 
WHICH VERSION!?
 
@JeremyBanks eeeh. You mean you can see content without paying?
 
7, obviously.
 
@rlemon 4.0 :)
 
@rlemon 4.0
 
9:09 PM
@Oded [tag:bug]
 
Fixing
 
@animuson yes
 
you should only support old opera, the one with the ads baked in. then advertise for StackExchange there. fool proof!
 
Anonymous
@Oded Only if you click through from Google -- but I was worried you'd patch even that away.
 
9:10 PM
@abbyhairboat actually we should support the last 2 major version
 
@Oded Yeah, someone seems to have put a redirect from Quora to this weird Stack Exchange site. Go fix that!
 
@Oded Wait ... Coster Payment Services? Is that correct?

whoa, that was unnecessarily scaled up
 
so great

@JoelSpolsky ^
 
you're thinking of bonzaibuddy
 
many yay
 
I think that was Seamonkey.
 
@Brant Unnecessary, but spectacular
 
9:11 PM
Reminds me of Headscape Hesitator
 
I have to bring something to your attention
in JavaScript on Stack Overflow Chat, Mar 13 '13 at 1:40, by rlemon
(Random Fact, when rlemon was 13 he pooped on a slide. he isn't proud of it, but he felt it was time to confess. I'm sorry slide.)
 
Just thought you guys should know that
 
@m0sa I think you can make images bigger by moving your head forward.
 
9:11 PM
:eek:
 
@Bart em. No relation?
 
@rlemon written in notepad
 
meh, SOC is meh
 
Careers should take care of the interviewing for me too
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum MSWord
 
9:12 PM
Could we get back to real questions? Pretty please? With chocolate?
 
yes, sorry
 
@Jhawins Just mail me a monthly digest with job offers I can accept
 
Yeah, it should go straight to offers. [tag:feasible]
 
@MichaelKjörling Wait, you want chocolate? Mm. I just got some good German chocolate.
 
Q: When can we cash out our reputation and buy a fur sink?
 
9:13 PM
serious question: programmer to dog ratio in the office. what is it?
4
 
Reddit only accepts ads featuring the alien mascot thing.
 
@rlemon no dogs allowed in NYC building :(
 
:O
 
Or Denver, now. :(
 
how.. but why... NO!!!!
 
9:13 PM
@rlemon remote?
 
damn relocation
 
Q: What changes be coming to StackOverflow after the round and how soon can we expect them?
10
 
That's it, remote.
 
@rlemon the one thing that keeps me from getting a corgi :(
 
@rlemon 0/3 in my office right now
STAR BENJAMIN'S SERIOUS QUESTION
 
9:14 PM
this might be public, but does SE have a Canadian office?
 
yes, in NYC
 
I liked my job fine until you brought up the private office thing again. Suddenly my job is terrible
 
lol
 
Anonymous
You've already done a pretty good job!
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum this question is on the list that is now on the big monitor that all the hosts can see but will still probably ignore
 
9:14 PM
@rlemon we have offices in NYC, London, and Denver. Rest of company works remote. No one works remote from Canada atm
 
Q: Has SO design update changed user behavior? (e.g. voting – those vote buttons look friendlier)
2
 
@abbyhairboat sounds like meta :D
 
@rlemon we do seem to be collecting canadians
 
@rlemon My bedroom used to be our Canadian office, but alas, no more.
 
Are you giving unhappy developers some of the $40 so they can retire?
 
9:14 PM
We were gonna have a dog in Denver, but it died.
 
Q: Would you consider being an intermediary, putting a "Buy This Person's Time" on their profile page or answers? It'd be awesome to see someone with a great answer to a problem I'm facing, and just see their schedule and buy a couple hours of their time.
5
 
Q: Are you planning on opening a Canadian office any time ever?
 
Probably some of the $40 indeed @DaveShaw
 
@BrentOzar on the list
 
@Bart - I think I'm missing an "M"
 
9:15 PM
@BenjaminGruenbaum on the list
@bjb568 on the list
 
@abbyhairboat (swoon) I want this so bad.
 
@abbyhairboat yay
 
i mean the list of questions they might answer @brent - not the list of planned features :)
 
@BrentOzar You're probably going to be a bit disappointed by the answer then....
 
> If you like my answer, buy 5 minutes of my time
 
9:16 PM
Q: Was a link from a user's profile to a user's careers profile ever considered? (for users who have careers profiles)
9
 
Except you do
 
@rlemon Remind me to warn people about the pain in the ass that is SR&ED.
 
@AlexMiller NOOOOOOO
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum double star
 
7 mins ago, by Undo
How will this affect the sites?
^ On the list too?
 
9:16 PM
@BenjaminGruenbaum Fairly sure this was planned in the profile redesign.
 
@AnnaLear :( I'm dealing with SRED right now
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum this is part of our goals for the profile page redesign
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum yep. I am working off mockups that have that...
 
Not ignoring all these starred questions. We'll hit some in a min.
 
@Oded oh cool - that would be interesting.
 
9:17 PM
once Joel is done with this story...
2
 
this is a good story though
i still get spam from them
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum we think we will limit to SO and possibly some other relevant sites.
 
I'd probably also add more options to the status - there are a lot of people with day jobs or are academics and aren't looking but would not mind performing a few hours of freelance.
 
Q: What is the Stack Exchange policy on keyboard selection?
 
9:18 PM
@Oded Q: Are there any plans to expand careers to other SE sites?
 
@MichaelKjörling developer choice
 
I'd probably hire people from workplace.se for HR - there are 5-10 users there who are way better than most HR people I've met.
 
@MichaelKjörling Cherry MX Blues or die
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum SO and SF at the moment, I don't know about other sites.
 
@KasraRahjerdi that
 
9:18 PM
not really an important question, but I'm interested in knowing: how many in office employees work at a standing desk? does SE facilitate them with nice desks? or is it a "you wanna stand, you make it happen"
4
 
(people can have whatever they want, most devs have custom built ~$200 keyboards)
 
@KasraRahjerdi I like my Model M, but I suppose I could learn to cope if I had to.
 
@rlemon definitely interesting question, starred.
 
@rlemon all desks are height adjustable and have presets, I have sitting, standing, and sleeping as presets on mine
 
I bought a CODE keyboard last year and it was the best money I ever spent on computer hardware
 
9:19 PM
most people toggle through the standing desk mode in the day, some people use it standing all the time
 
@KasraRahjerdi and here I am with boxes raising everything up
 
Who needs this podcast when @Oded has all the answers? :)
 
@Bart I am the best, after all.
 
@rlemon we have awesome Steelcase desks (in all offices + remote offices)
 
@rlemon @DavidFullerton has a voice activated standing desk
 
9:20 PM
@Sklivvz :O I need to see this!
 
No argument there @Oded
 
@Sklivvz it's sigh-activated
 
@rlemon Answered in the blogpost that they were referencing earlier: blog.stackoverflow.com/2015/01/…
> Motorized standing/sitting desks come standard, including for remote employees.
 
No developer likes recruiters.
 
@Retsam ... I'm jelly
 
9:21 PM
 
They're everywhere, I get contacted at least twice a week by recruiters based on SO and GH stuff.
 
In your research, have you come across Hired? I really liked them.
 
What is the editor of choice for the panel group?
 
Recruiters are like advertisements :D
 
The one time I worked with real recruiters was terrible - they tried to get me an intern job.
 
9:21 PM
Stack Exchange people team checking in.
 
@SomeKittens haha :D
 
yeah, go get recruited by @PieterDePree
 
Also: Can you comment on SO rep being useful to the job search? Joel said he'd hire anyone in the top 5k but I've found most don't care.
5
 
he's freaking learning to code so he can carry conversations better with applicants
 
does anyone else think it would be fun to get them to discuss TABS vs SPACES? (it's end of day here, sorry)
 
9:22 PM
@rlemon no because that's not even a question, it's like asking if people prefer rolling toilet paper over or under
 
@rlemon no
 
@KasraRahjerdi OVER
 
@KasraRahjerdi over, always over
 
We realise you have an agenda to push how awesome careers is in the podcast but please answer some questions.
 
@KasraRahjerdi is a cat so doesn't use toilet paper
 
9:23 PM
I've become deaf to the LinkedIn recruiter contacts. Weird today though, somebody solicited me publicly on twitter abt a specific job
 
@SomeKittens A blue name in chat helps. ;)
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum WE'LL GET THERE I PROMISE
 
We all read the blog post, and the article on tech crunch and like you but it'd be awesome if you talked about questions.
 
I've also interviewed with a guy who had an essay published in The Best Software Writing Pt. 1 and he totally dissed my rep. JUSTIFY ME
 
Don't worry, @DavidGreenley will edit all this out to make space for questions
 
9:24 PM
Q: Are there any plans to add a chat feature to the mobile application? It gets really confusing that it sends you to a browser.
6
 
@Shog9 Not one of your "four or five recruiters" has ever called me. I think they might be defective
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum IIRC, the answer was "Yes, in 6-8 weeks"
 
I suggest firing them all and getting a new set
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum not in the immediate future. it'd require an API for chat which we don't have yet (and we don't have anyone working full time on chat to make an API for it at the moment)
 
I care about you so much I'm charging you money!
 
9:25 PM
that's MY TEAM so that's the authoritative decision on it
 
@KasraRahjerdi that's ok, we reverse engineered it and have an API :D ping @SecondRikudo in the JavaScript room.
 
eh that's just web socket related API not a real API so if you enter in from a notification you won't be able to see the previous messages
 
cv/get-one
 
Going to talk about SO post quality?
 
I HAVE ALL THE INVITES.
 
9:25 PM
@KasraRahjerdi so many excuses.
 
testing 123
 
career invite here: bit.ly/1Bc5TMC
 
@AdamMosheh yes?
 
I'm pretty sure I just signed up for careers without an invite... And then was given 5 invites.
 
9:26 PM
"slash cv slash get dash one careers dot com careers dot stack overflow dot com"
2
everybody got that
 
Anonymous
@KasraRahjerdi We've got a nice interface on top of scraping the transcript HTML for that. :P
 
@BretCopeland Bret, thanks for the invite to the chat
 
@Jhawins high rep on SO?
 
>1K not high tho
 
slash dot dash ... and then @abbyhairboat?
 
9:27 PM
@KasraRahjerdi there are maybe 10 chat clients people built, there is one in C#, one in JS, one in Python - even one in Rebol. A chat API would be awesome though.
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum yep, i've seen a bunch of 'em
 
Troy ounces.
 
@Bart dot dot dot dash dash dash dot dot dot
 
YAY GRAPHIC DESIGNER!
 
@hichris123 you take that back right now!!
 
9:27 PM
It's not a valid chat platform unless there's a hubot adapter, imho
 
YAY NO CONTRAST :D
 
guys i got jimmy john's
 
Which site will get the redesign?
2
 
@hichris123 your soul is beyond saving, I thought?
 
it was the right decision
 
9:28 PM
@abbyhairboat what # sub
better be 13
 
Someone should order them pizza.
 
expressionengine.stackexchange.com just got a beautiful new design
 
@AdamMosheh we have a big backlog of sites ready to graduate that just need designs
 
taylor swift's favorite number (and my favorite sub)
 
@KasraRahjerdi nope, vito
 
9:28 PM
@Bart "Save Our ... Glasses?!"
 
@DavidFullerton Ooh, that look so half decent! is happy
 
@abbyhairboat I'll get my dogs ready with some paint
 
ugh, what a time to get a phone call :( did I miss anything fancy from the last 5 minutes?
 
@Oded I hope not. :P
 
9:28 PM
@hichris123 you know it
 
@SomeKittens beer would be more entertaining
 
also, uh, stackoverflow.com got a facelift
 
@DavidFullerton with no complaints at all surprisingly. :p
 
@SomeKittens got the address?
 
What rep level is "power user" for you guys?
 
9:29 PM
@denny milkshakes
 
@Bart zero complaints! we hit this one out of the park!
 
@SomeKittens over 9,000
 
A page with all my favorite tags' new questions (and nothing more) would be nice
 
@cashenhu Don't tease me.
 
@Jin went through a massive amount of work refactoring our .less that accumulated cruft over the years.
 
9:29 PM
@SomeKittens 80K+
 
@SomeKittens Probably not as much rep based as moderation activity based. So as long as you can review, like >~3k.
 
@JasonPunyon Massiv milkshake partaaaay
 
@JoelSpolsky can we get a podcast every 6-8 weeks?
5
 
<- repless, fauxcoder
 
Starting to sound like a job interview
 
9:30 PM
So after a $40mm round, your goal is to beat Google. Got it.
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum Can't you make a filter on stackexchange.com ?
 
man i just learned how to pronounce @Sklivvz 's last name
 
@BrentOzar CHECK.. MATE
 
@GeoffDalgas You might have to add another AG replica.
 
HEY
 
9:31 PM
@DavidFullerton better search
 
@Sklivvz haha he pronounced your name wrong ;)
 
GET ME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH
 
@KasraRahjerdi lol you didn't... it's actually checkoni
 
@BrentOzar won't that cost ~$40MM
 
are there QA positions available? I could check, but I'm already here
 
9:31 PM
He just called us easy
 
@rlemon we do have Meta, you know?
 
@rlemon aren't those just the users?
 
... but I'm already here!
 
@Oded They just get it off BitTorrent.
 
@bluefeet touche
 
9:32 PM
Will there be someone to represent the rage quitters?
 
lel, almost posted a CV request here
 
stackexchange.com/work-here
 
@MichaelMrozek oh cool
 
@Bart Those that said they were leaving, but didn't
 
@Andy :D
 
9:32 PM
or just ping @PieterDePree in this chat :-PPP
 
no QA :(
 
We're looking for Indiana Jones
 
@JoelSpolsky Has anyone ever gone so far as even to need more to do look more like?
 
product manager @Laura studied anthropology
ergo joel is 100% correct
 
@Bart we tried that, but the churn rate for those people tends to be high
 
9:33 PM
product manager WillCole is a former entrepreneur
 
@abbyhairboat n=1 is always the best way to draw conclusions! :)
 
Hey, is this the first time a pair of glasses got a job offer?
 
what's your definition of "real anthropologist" @DavidFullerton?
 
@Laura 100% of our product managers are former entrepreneurs and anthropologists
 
@hichris123 my parent monocles can be proud of me
 
9:34 PM
DAMMIT
 
Is there a reason the audio is that bad?
 
@Bart :D
 
"Love" is such a relative word.
 
@Laura not an archaeologist :)
 
I would totally buy ads for that.
Eeeeexactly.
HAHAHA
I paid for ads already.
 
9:35 PM
@bjb568 my guess is livestream + compression
 
many ugh
 
is this show an ad for @BrentOzar ? :)
 
Yay, my question!
 
AND WHILE YOU'RE HERE, CHECK OUT MY LINE OF SUNTAN OIL
2
 
ha!
 
9:35 PM
moar serious questions, guys! we need 'em!
 
@abbyhairboat There are plenty
 
ref new top bar
 
@BrentOzar I saw you modelling for it
 
Site Design: I love the quoted-code combination now works. Much better!
 
Trivia: we've made an internal commitment to stop using the term "whine" to describe user behavior, hence Joel's use of the more politically-correct "bitch and moan"
 
9:36 PM
I know you've already mentioned searching, but are we going to ever allow wildcards in the searches? currently in Chat I know it just nulls the search (there are a few keywords/symbols that do that) ?
3
 
YES and YES
40 million dollar man
 
@rlemon added to the question list
 
ty
 
Use part of the $40m to get us all good monitors?
 
@rlemon chat's search doesn't use Elastic Search yet
dude there's still a Web Safe button in Photoshop
 
9:38 PM
@KasraRahjerdi lies
 
So... if everyone on the office uses Mac, how do they know Mac's colors are correct?
 
@m0sa really?! then why does it suck?!
 
And you took money from these guys?
 
@KasraRahjerdi now that's a good question
 
we can just ship everyone a Spyder 2
 
9:39 PM
I blame chat users. If they'd spell things better, chat search would work better.
 
@KasraRahjerdi it uses different queries & is indexed differently irc
 
We have what we call the "Netbook test" where we pull out the netbook I had in college and try to get the application to work on that.
 
@KasraRahjerdi when it first came out (with stemming on), it couldn't find things like the name "Oded". Took it to be the past tense of Ode.
 
@KasraRahjerdi windows phones.
 
9:39 PM
2GB is HARD.
 
@SomeKittens your Q again
 
Hey, there's this site, where I have a big number, and having a big number is good, so can you make my salary a big number too?
 
posting on Stack Overflow is like a kitten
 
@Shog9 uh…
 
@SomeKittens rep = hourly rate. done and done.
3
 
9:41 PM
> you have over 10K rep on stackoverflow! wow!
^ had this in a recruiter email
 
@Shog9 seems quite cute but is mostly crap?
 
@rlemon a good recruiter or a crappy recruiter?
 
@Bart HAAAAY!
 
@Bart ...and razor-sharp claws
 
There are also a lot of people that have a high rep on StackOverflow who don't really know how to code :D
 
9:41 PM
:)
 
Very good at google I'll give them that
 
This is a strange podcast
 
@rlemon me too
 
stop talking about me, @Benjamin
 
@abbyhairboat it was actually a local company and someone who worked there worked with me before. so I internal recruiter.
 
9:42 PM
@BenjaminGruenbaum People can ask questions.
 
@Shog9 hopefully not an exploding one
 
@rlemon nice
 
Anecdote about SO rep: my manager tells an anecdote about hiring someone who made a point of their high SO rep on their resumé; they were hired but turned out to be very unproductive because they were answering questions on SO all day...
 
quantity != quality
2
 
9:42 PM
@abbyhairboat I'm just glad they didn't look into the actual answers that got me the rep ;)
 
Alex is thrilled by this whole conversation
 
@Retsam we hire people and they stop answering because now they're busy working at work :)
e.g. Nick Craver
 
@DavidFullerton is this why you've never hired @JonSkeet ?
 
@MichaelMrozek he's actually transcribing it, on his phone, such is his enthusiasm
 
@Shog9 don't tell him about the transcript feature
 
9:44 PM
he'll be heartbroken
 
that's not a real question
STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS I HATE IT
 
Still no room in the budget. Someone has to donate a Windows Phone to Kasra to make this happen.
 
I only have WP7 phones and WP8 doesn't run on them but WP7.8 does which LOOKS THE SAME but doesn't run the same apps
 
Olivia Pope wants to use SO.
 
@KasraRahjerdi if you'll actually develop an app I have a friend in Microsoft who'd ship you a phone.
 
9:45 PM
i hate you guys

in General Discussion, Nov 19 '14 at 16:36, by Shog9
@BobCross apparently our chat dev just got an iphone like last week. So it may take some time for that to improve.
Does this actually explain chat?
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum i actually made 2 WP apps for a "Make apps get a free phone!" competition but it ended up being ONLY IN BRAZIL
 
@KasraRahjerdi I'm getting the feeling you're the mobile developer :P
 
WHY WOULD YOU E-MAIL ME AND TELL ME TO DO THIS IF IT'S ONLY A PROMOTION IN BRAZIL
sorry i have lots of microsoft angst
 
9:46 PM
I DID
 
@Jhawins no, it explains Kasra's fascination with iPhones. He's compensating for the inability to add chat.
 
> Seller of propane and propane accessories at @StackExchange (also, mobile lead). Looks best when viewed in 800x600. Slimy, yet satisfying.
 
Alternatively you can fix mobile chat
 
Q: Will MSE footer contrast improve? meta.stackexchange.com/q/237657/237813
 
9:47 PM
I REPHRASE MY QUESTION! can we get the chat search to work the same as site search to meta!
 
good job guys
 
@JoelSpolsky how much do you lift?
 
Is there any plan to give us an API for chat?
 
^
API! API! API!
 
Hats!
 
9:47 PM
HATS WERE AWESOME
 
23 mins ago, by Kasra Rahjerdi
@BenjaminGruenbaum not in the immediate future. it'd require an API for chat which we don't have yet (and we don't have anyone working full time on chat to make an API for it at the moment)
 
Paul Irish lifts.

Lifehacks.SE ...
 
read my comment ;)
 
@abbyhairboat can this make it to the list chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/19638955#19638955
 
GIVE THAT MAN A RAISE
 
@rlemon yup it's on there
 
How does that cool-looking computer pop-up in the table work?
 
9:48 PM
ty
@Undo I was thinking the same thing
 
@Undo it's just a monitor on a slab of table that flips around
 
@Undo IT'S REALLY COOL there's a LEVER you pull then phloop the monitor flexes out
 
@alex flip the monitor in and out a couple times
 
Was there much more said about the quality project other than "Shog and Tim are doing something with it"?
 
we want a demo.
 
9:49 PM
I just cleared the triage queue
 
"perception"
 
Question: when will we get the new profile page on SO or Meta-SO?

there goes the table monitor
 
isn't it awesome
 
9:49 PM
me want
 
I missed it :(
 
i spent like an hour trying to figure out what that lever did
@Laura can confirm
 
Nuke it from orbit!
 
(it was about 5 minutes @KasraRahjerdi)
 
my sense of time is like a dog's
that's why i'm so excited when i see you
 
9:50 PM
@KasraRahjerdi which you guys don't have :(
 
@Shog9 This sounds like the low quality queue but it hides the posts while they're in it
 
Q: What happened to the videos idea?

Q: An experiment: Stack Overflow TV

Matt ShermanStack Overflow is beginning an experiment called Stack Overflow TV, or SOTV for short. It will be a series of fast, smart videos for experienced programmers who want to learn a new thing. The videos will serve as a complement to Stack’s Q&A, and intended for that community. Of course, they will ...

 
Q: Where are my pants?
 
@SomeKittens on your head.
 
can I get some recognition for my chat participation? a no-life badge or something?

9:51 PM
main.css:1:141388 rule should also have "margin-bottom: 10px;", the message looks uneven with only top margin.
 
this is more of a personal request than a podcast request
 
The first sentient AI will be SO's Quality Control Program.
 
@rlemon has the most chat messages
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum mostly, we just never found the right presenters to kick it off with.
 
@denny we shouldn't have called it skynet
 
9:52 PM
this feature sounds awesome :)
 
Matt's been bumped like thrice
 
Can you discuss the recent outages and causes?
2
 
...did someone say education
 
look at that diet cherry pepsi
 
Q: Do you have any plans to run hackathons to promote local user groups?
 
9:53 PM
@MichaelMrozek also hides them after they're out of it
 
@merlin2011 on the list
@BenjaminGruenbaum on the list
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum say hi to @JonChan who is creating a Devangelism team at stack for things related to that AS WE SPEAK
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum we've traveled to some hackathons on the college circuit
 
Were you surprised by the negative community feedback on proposals such as SO TV, scholarships and the like? And what do you do with such feedback?
4
 
9:54 PM
Have we discussed chat's "kick-mute" feature?
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum this would be a good meta question: "can we have a 'vote to unfreeze' feature for chat rooms like we do for questions on main"
 
We are investigating why egress traffic was being dropped and will have a postmortem up once we get more information on the upstream issues.
 
What ideas for better comment moderation tools have been discussed?
 
@JonChan if you send me swag and money I'll totally set up a meetup here. I can easily get 50 people.
 
It seems odd that you guys are forcing people to come to NY for SO:TV despite strongly believing in remote work.
 
9:54 PM
@Bart on the list
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum I'd like to explore us organizing a central hackathon
 
@Bart Jay reads it all and feels very bad.
 
I'd do it but I can't get to NYC.
 
I want to see what we did with dev days and take a look at that again
 
@Shog9 some of the "feedback" was way over the top, but interesting still
 
9:54 PM
Any plans to bring back SO DevDays? :-)
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum we actually have a way of requesting swag for events and what not: s.tk/swagrequest
 
@JonChan clarification: the money is for snacks and stuff not as pay, and the swag is to give away. A central hackathon won't work here I'm in Israel. I can get 50-100 people but I can't fly them all.
 
@SomeKittens that is probably part of the problem. The problem is it's really hard to get high-quality recording over Google Hangouts :\
 
2600.so.org
 
or more generally: video is hard
 
9:55 PM
@KasraRahjerdi I have my own mechanism - it's called pinging @Shog9 and then bugging him tons
 
text is much easier
 
@DavidFullerton Ah, that makes sense.
 
We have done some user group events in London too
 
Will you use some of the $40M to buy Sweden and take their TLD?
3
 
@JonChan I think that local usergroups could really help. Especially when you want to move into the "localized" space.
 
9:56 PM
@KasraRahjerdi nooooo
 
NO
 
this is off limits for right now
 
YOU DIDNT ANSWER THE QUESTION
 
it is Closed
 
@abbyhairboat then disable the form!
 
9:56 PM
So, no WP 8.1 apps, but what about normal Win8? ;)
 
8 mins ago, by Undo
Is there any plan to give us an API for chat?
 
you only disabled the other one
 
@abbyhairboat Things that should be announced beyond one internal chatroom. :P
 
well i didn't do that
it was tim
 
9:56 PM
^
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum hm local user groups would be nice
 
not my fault
 
@rlemon they said not in the immediate future
 
ohh, I missed that
:(
 
Oops
 
9:57 PM
@JonChan if there are 100 users in a local usergroup when you want to launch a localized site you start with a strong user base who understands the system. It won't cost you a lot of money to bootstrap since developers already love SO.
 
lol
 
looks borked ^^
 
nope i removed mine you bring yours back :)
 
9:57 PM
@bjb568 you complain a lot
2
 
@JonEricson I'll bet that looks a lot better on your screen
 
@abbyhairboat keep it on the list for the next time ;)
 
@Shog9 It looks better if you hover over a reply to the message ;)
 
@BenjaminGruenbaum we definitely do localized launch events - a hackathon could be part of that
 
9:58 PM
can someone sample that 'goodbye' from joel? I wanna make a dubstep remix.
2
 
@JonChan if you're interested I know a lot of people here who are holding meetups and such - I can connect you to relevant people about organising it and help. Shoot me an email (benji at tipranks dot com)
 
@Shog9 Probably. It does look nice.
 
still streaming..
 
@rlemon @DavidGreenley!
 
we just need to figure out a system for how to distribute resources
 
9:58 PM
Good to see fame and popularity does not corrupt.
 
what about the new profile page?
2
 
@I3arnon more to come. 6-8 weeks.
 
@DavidFullerton there was negative feedback about SOTV, too
 
The scholarship is awesome, haters gonna hate.
 
the demand is definitely there
 
9:59 PM
Awesome work doing it, making the world better.
 
welp, I have to run. it was fun. thanks @SE
 
@rlemon have a good one
 
will there be minutes posted for this? or a recording of it?
 
@rlemon yup
