Gosh, I'm almost half way to rep capping already.
I am halfway.
@Legato Watch out.
All these votes will probably be overturned by the system for serial voting.
 
@Hosch250 after 10 minutes?
 
I finished up a while ago, I just looked at what you've done and up-voted what I liked. Though I'll admit if you had 9 votes already I gave you the 10.
 
Oh, OK.
Thanks.
@SimonAndréForsberg Yeah, I just can back, and I almost had a heart attack.
The thing said +80., then +90 came in.
Then, +10 (I'd already opened it).
 
@Hosch250 I just hope you're not being serially upvoted
 
12:13 AM
I am sure I am.
They were all separate posts.
 
then that will be reversed :/
 
Yeah, -100.
No matter, really.
 
:/
 
Are you sure it wasn't you, @Legato?
It stopped now.
Either way, it is past the time limit to remove them.
 
^ It was me, I was saying I was finished, I went through all your JS stuff. I didn't think it'd be a negative, I up-voted a lot of the questions, and competing answers too.
 
12:19 AM
Yeah, it will probably get reversed.
It doesn't matter really, serial voting shouldn't be allowed.
It would be unfair to other people.
You gave me +170 in a matter of about 20-30 minutes.
Supper's going on, see you later.
 
@Hosch250 holy crap that's going to get reversed!
 
45 Minutes.
 
if you succeed with this serial upvote, @Legato, I'm taking lessons from you!

Couple minutes to go.
For supper, I mean.
 
@Legato if you upvoted other answers and questions too, it might not get reversed (I was never a reversed @Santa) ;)
Serial voting script usually runs at 3am UTC I think
 
12:32 AM
That I did. I understand why the system's in place, and even the reason it would get reversed, but I hope it doesn't and don't feel it should. I didn't blindly up vote all his stuff. The entire reason I favored JS over C# was that I'm actually familiar with that, and even then I skipped a lot of stuff(no offense), he just had a lot to look at and they were all short.
Anyone here use @skiwi 's hearth monitor?
 
@Legato Only @skiwi. It is still a bit away from being usable.

Q: Need help outputting result as fraction (ex .05 = 1/2)

androidguyHow can I output the result as a fraction instead of a decimal? I know that I need a separate function but I'm not sure how to implement this.

wow... quite in here
I can see my own comments from a day ago without scrolling
 
@Mehrad (quiet*)
 
@Unihedro yep
trying not to break the silence
@Unihedro you're good with Regex. would you want a little question
 
@Duga Holy crap, you've been busy!
Monking
@Unihedro avoid using clone. What is it you want to copy? I'd recommend using a copy-constructor mostly.
 
morning
 
11:14 AM
@Mehrad I'm not particularly good with regular expressions, but do ask :p
@SimonAndréForsberg What's a copy-constructor?
 
@SilviuBurcea No, it does not. This sentence makes it off-topic for Code Review: "I am now at the point where I need the user input to put the pieces in the correct column for each row but am struggling to do so". Code Review does not help in adding new functionality. — Simon André Forsberg 2 mins ago
 
a constructor that takes an argument that it can copy information from, thus creating a copy of the object
 
Oh, I see.
 
the other day I needed to find an expression which can find duplicates in the comma delimited string @Unihedro. and I was getting all sorts of errors using this as a part of it (?<=,|^)
 
@Mehrad Which flavour?
 
11:17 AM
why it's not possible to have multiple conditions inside a look behind?
well the online engines were giving me errors and the one in the Sublime basically didn't catch anything
not sure how c# would react to it
 
Because you're not using a .NET engine, and if you're in Java your pattern is fundamentally pointless.
 
So C# would be okay with it
 
@Mehrad "The online engines" -> The lookbehind constructs are not present in Javascript, and in PCRE all lookbehinds must be constant length where alternations are absent.
 
I was getting that constant length error. What is not constant length about this?
 
@Mehrad "where alternations are absent" <- your subpattern failed this criteria, it had a lookbehind with alternations within
 
11:21 AM
I mean I got around it with something like (?:(?<=,)|^) if I remember right, but just like to understand it
 
Note that later versions of PCRE (should be after v5, not sure) can alternate in lookbehinds.
@Mehrad Depending on what you really need, (?<![^,]) may suffice.
 
@T.J.Crowder In this case, I think SO is the better option. Code Review would likely close this as example code, as it has been stripped of a lot of context. Please read meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/253975/…Simon André Forsberg 1 min ago
 
Or, using \K instead of back assertion: (?:,\K|^)
 
interesting. makes sense

@GáborBakos No, it definitely does not. This is nowhere near Code Revieww material. Please check meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/253975/…Simon André Forsberg 4 mins ago
 
11:22 AM
Thanks @Unihedro
 
However, \K is a PCRE / Python-regex-module construct, so you won't get it working in C#. :/
 
the explanation was as straight to the point as it could be
it's quite sad that, a tool this powerful isn't standardized over all the platforms
 
There's an ECMA for regex.
But it's kinda crappy and meh.

@skiwi few days vs months? Wow, talk about specific :)
6-8 weeks 3-90 days
 
@Unihedro It's generally good to stay away from clone() is what I've learned
Monking
@SimonAndréForsberg I'd say it's a good amount, and nowhere near annoying or anything :) I like it!
 
@skiwi @Duga has a purpose now! :)
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Lies, it already had!
 
@skiwi What about the other two? Is it generally more preferable to use new or re-un-serialize?
 
12:04 PM
@Unihedro If it is more in-program usage I'd go with the copy constructor
Only serialize when going over network or storing to file, etc.

@rolfl You got a monster in the family as well!?
 
@Legato That's still a bit tricky to answer, definitely my original goal was to show if you could do lethal damage in a turn... But I'm actually more focusing on a desktop part where you can "view" your actions right now
 
I was thinking of maybe working on something that just counts off which cards of your own BG were played, and what was left. Problem was I only had an idea how to do it manually, haha.
 
I think that's good thinking. You need all the data before you can analyze it.
 
Still cool.
this is such a good answer.

Sorry, 'deck' I tend to think of these as 'battlegroups' from an old game I played.
 
I'm right now playing FFXIV (an MMORPG), but that's really hard to get into, I think it's about 15 months since I last played it, and it's one of those were you have like 30 hotkeys
 
@SimonAndréForsberg I actually would do that mentally, I only wanted to display what was left to draw. That'd be something additional.

@Legato you know combinatoric mathematics?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Why do you ask? I've never actually seen that term used, but sounds interesting. Seems like it's big in CompSci from my search.
@skiwi Awesome. I'll be looking forward to the finished product.

I've seen that, I up-voted it. :D
 
normal people don't use that much combinatorics in fact
but every now and then, you have use for it
 
3:53 PM
I still have a class on combinatorics, I believe
I've passed Probability Theory already, but that's a year orso ago...
Only need to have Statistics now, but guess what, it's no longer given as a sole subject for Computer Science students... So either I take Probablity Theory & Statistics (CS version) or I take a different Statistics class, but that's a hard-core math version
 
Maybe it's something I'll take soon, I'm taking applied statistics next semester and am taking Discrete Structures now, so if that doesn't really help me understand the field it should give me more of an idea, no?
 
@Legato Discrete Structures, fun, fun, fun, it's not that bad though
 
I think that sentence perfectly encapsulates why I love this place.
 
hey guys
what do Java guys think about this:
for each is slower than the loop I propose as the length of arr can still change. Thus the compiler optimization in for each is worse than the manual optimization of computing the size once and considering that the size does not change. — barq 14 mins ago
 
4:08 PM
@janos Premature de-optimization
 
that too, good point
 
I can't really care anything else about it right now..
 
@janos if the size change while iterating, that's a ConcurrentModificationException

@rolfl You got a monster in the family as well!?
^^ yeah, and my son too ;-)
 
how do you change the size of an int[] in the middle of iterating?
 
4:12 PM
@janos yeah, that too. (Didn't realize we were talking about arrays)
 
@janos Ah yeah, I think for (int elem : intArray) it doesn't matter at all
 
@janos for (int i : array) { array = new [array.length + 1]; }
 
the android perf-tips page says the behavior is vastly different for arrays and arraylist
 
hmm... Java uses Iterator<T> for for-each over objects, but what does it use for primitive arrays?
 
Arguing about the performance of for-each vs. for-with-loop-variable is pointless without a specific test case, on a specific machine, fully-compiled JIT assembler output code, and profile data in a real use case. — rolfl ♦ 23 secs ago

You should take your question here codereview.stackexchange.comAK_ 2 mins ago
 
note that for (int i : array) { array = new [array.length + 1]; } is untested code, I have no clue on what wwould happen :)
 
probably nothing. The iteration will complete on the now unreferenced old array
 
@Duga holy crap, you're effective!
@janos correct, that's precisely what happened.
 
awesome
 
@AK_ For Code Review, fixing the bug before posting there is the first problem. Please see meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/253975/…Simon André Forsberg 3 mins ago
@AK_ Once the code works does what it is supposed to do, we'd gladly review it and make it do the same thing in a better way, but in the current state of this question, this is off-topic for Code Review. — Simon André Forsberg 4 mins ago
 
4:25 PM
@rolfl I think @Duga did not post your comment because it only checks once every 6 minutues currently, which is too slow. I have not yet figured out when the API reset occurs. It is not at reload time, as I thought.
so this means that currently, there is a small risk that @Duga won't detect a comment suggesting Code Review.
"quota_max":300,"quota_remaining":70
@Duga spreads these 70 remaining requests out over a period of 7.5 hours (until reload). I think it will be reset before that though
 
@AK_ Have you read Code Review's Help Center? I know, this is not good code. That doesn't matter, it has to work before being posted on Code Review. Suggesting the author to go to CR after this bug is fixed is acceptable. — Simon André Forsberg 3 mins ago
 
@rolfl If you could use your influence with the PTB, I would love an answer to this question:

Q: Why is my API quota not resetting after UTC reset?

jmort253According to How API Keys Work, the default daily API limit -- which is per site, per day -- is 300. I started with 300, as expected, but over a period of days, I've noticed that the remaining quota has now been whittled down to about 70 something: { "items": [ { "user_id":0000,"di...

@SimonAndréForsberg Investigating.
 
I appreciate that!
 
Hmmm... now's not a good time. Remind me at about..... 18:00 UTC on a weekday
 
To sub or to not sub... that's the question

Q: Animated Score Amounts for Game

bazolaThis is a simple class for a label with a score that animates counting up or down. When someone in the game scores points, the numbers count up or down to the new total. Here is an example of what it looks like: I ran into a few problems when building this class. It was important to preven...

@user3502786: You should learn how to use function parameters ($1, $2, ...) and local variables. And also, remember that if statement; tests whether statement succeeds or fails, so there is no need to play games with [[ and $? if you just want to know if a command succeeded or failed.

Q: A shorter way for getting variables

MaxKorlaarI have the following piece of code in my project, and that a few times: $this->uniqueSessionKey = $settings->get('uniqueSessionKey') ? $settings->get('uniqueSessionKey') : $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] . time(); I was wondering if there's a better way of writing this, especially the part where i...

@Mat'sMug which part of it?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg all of it. It's what the word "awesome" exists for :)
Are you putting it up on CR?
 
@Mat'sMug you didn't say "awesome" though :)

Q: Exponentiation in logarithmic time

Syd Kerckhove Input: Real number y and Integer number x Output: x^y Constraint: Must be done in O(log(y)) time. Notice that O(log(y)) is O(length-of(y)). public static double expon(double x, int y){ double result = 1.0; double part = x; for (int i = 0; i < 32; i++){ if (((y >> i) & 1)...

 
@Mat'sMug I plan on doing so, yes. I already have a title for it.
 
@Duga must be blushing. Been called "impressive", and now "awesome" too ;)

I first want to improve the rate-limit thing though... so that I know better when the quota reset occurs.
 
@janos After all, I am a bot who's name is Duga (that is so much funnier in Swedish)
 
I'll never understand what that name means
 
Good enough.
I like the Bosnian translation better - Rainbow.
 
or, when used as "who's name is Duga", it means "is awesome"
 
Good pun.
Well, not a pun.
Good wordplay, anyway.
 
Bing doesn't get Duga:
a bot named duga
 
so, can you say in a sentence, "your code formatting style is duga" (= good enough)
 
No, because "duga" is not officially part of the English language.
 
She's a gold digga duga
 
That would be mixing languages.
 
5:35 PM
@janos that would be, "your code formatting duger".
 
Did you guys see this yet?

A: How about an interesting newsletter?

Hosch250I designed this mockup (stats estimated). What do you think?

 
yeah I didn't mean mixing languages, I meant if you replace the English words with Swedish (duga already is), would it work
 
Duga as a name is different than duga as a word.
 
ok we're back where we started:
9 mins ago, by janos
I'll never understand what that name means
 
lol
 
5:39 PM
that's not asking for more explanation...
 
"det duger" means "good enough"
"en bot som heter Duga" *literally* means "a bot named Duga" but is meant as "a bot out of the ordinary"
 
that is to say, I'm just gonna leave Duga alone. Duga is Duga, a fine lad, and that's good enough for me
 
I think you meant "literally," not "literrary."
 
I should edit @Duga's profile and write it there...
@Hosch250 I can't spell today apparently
 
I think you meant lass.
 
5:41 PM
@janos fine lad gal ;)
