8:24 AM
Greetings
 
@IsmaelMiguel Hi
 
How's it going here?
 
Trying to stay awake @_@
 
@Gemtastic I have a few "cures" for that. Coffee, Rockstar, Monster, RedBull, jump around like a maniac for 20 seconds, go outside and scream your lungs out, metal music or just take a shower (if you are at home)
 
@IsmaelMiguel I wish I had those and that they worked...
 
8:28 AM
Well, they don't work for me.
I must be caffeine-resistant
 
If I were at home I'd just powernap and come back refreshed and restored like a pokemon in nurse Joy's care...
 
But I know some people that can't even eat a tea-spoon of sugar that get all hyper
@Gemtastic Give me 1m
 
I'm everything resistant almost. I think I can submit to narcosis, but I haven't "tried" that since I was 4...
 
@IsmaelMiguel I have the same issue. Never felt any caffeine kick
 
@Gemtastic Narcosis?
@jacwah Yeah, sometime I think that the caffeine effect is just the placebo effect.
 
8:31 AM
Yeah, I didn't wake up during surgery when I was a kid, but every other medication I've had barely affects me at all. Not fun to be ill :(
 
I'm lucky enough to do not need any medical care for almost anything
I'm considered healthy (physically)
It's extremely rare for me to be sick
 
Lucky you indeed
 
I've never had a cold! I'm 23 and I never had a cold!
So yeah, I'm lucky
 
O.o
lives in constant cold land
 
I live in Portugal
 
8:34 AM
well... Portugal - Sweden... prefer Sweden
 
None
Mars seems fine
 
I don't know much about Portugal, but I'm glad healthcare is tax funded here
 
Here it isn't
You have 2 options here:
1- die in the waiting room, with the desease of the guys around you
2- pay your eyes out for private health care
 
Private care is expensive here too
 
If you pick option 1, you wait around 6 hours for a doctor to talk with you for 5-10 minute to say that you have a cold or 'stomach flu'
Or something utterly 'basic'
 
8:45 AM
@IsmaelMiguel that makes no sense..
at home you are free to use whatever browser you want
 
@IsmaelMiguel Why?
 
if you wanted you could use Netscape (asserting you found it somewhere)
 
@IsmaelMiguel I was referring to caffeine.
 
@Vogel612 It does. When a browser uses Hardware Acceleration, the card freaks out!
 
@Vogel612 s/asserting/assuming ?
 
8:46 AM
@Mast Oh, sorry. Well, I guess I have to update my coffee dosage
 
Too much caffeine just gives me headaches.
 
Too much caffeine makes nothing on me.
Too much alcohol gives me headaches
 
Then you haven't had too much caffeine yet :P
 
And I LOVE alcohol!
 
@Mast isn't it a prerequisite?
 
8:48 AM
@Gemtastic Like an overdose? Well, I drank cola, 1l of coffee, 2 cans of Monster and 1 RedBull in 1 day
 
I think I should ask it on one of the English .SE
 
I woke up at 4am with my heart racing
 
@IsmaelMiguel Well to be fair, your kidneys die kinda silently, and the heart is tricky
 
@IsmaelMiguel that sounds like the dosage I gave myself for making it through the night after a whole week of 2hrs sleep a day and hard work
 
@IsmaelMiguel Then you had a symptom from having too much >_>
LIAR!
 
8:49 AM
@Gemtastic That doesn't worry me
Well, at 4am I wasn't drinking
 
@IsmaelMiguel You may not be bothered by it, but it sure does something to you :P
 
@Gemtastic You are right, can't deny the unflawed logic
@Vogel612 Sounds fun! I must try it again this weekend
 
@Gemtastic As long as they die after the rest of your organs, there's no problem
 
@Mast Well, if the heart gives in first it's all gg anyway :P
 
@Mast Yeah, because the liver must go first (due to alcohol)
 
8:52 AM
And if you splat to the asphalt from 3km high the order doesn't matter at all.
That escalated quickly...
 
And from what I've heard, that's the most common death related to caffeine. When the kidneys give up you have a lot of time to find a new one.
 
That sounds like a fall from a plane
 
Does anyone know if Flash has an ETA on their update? The latest version is FUBAR.
 
No idea
All I know is that there was a safety update
Maybe today?
 
@Mast about this quickly:
;P
 
8:54 AM
@Gemtastic Time to loose some mass I guess.
 
gravity = GAME MODERATOR / (reasoning * reason) ?
 
@IsmaelMiguel No.
 
Let me google that
 
@Mast Yeah, I know. I should be working on it but slow metabolism made me lazy >_>
 
r = radius, you can figure out the rest :P
 
8:56 AM
Radius of what?
Yourself or the Earth?
 
I would link you to a copy of "basic physics for dummies" but that book series is written by dummies not for dummies ;P
 
@Mast actually it deescalated quickly... because falling..
 
Have you guys seen the feather and the ball dropped in a vacuum?
 
Yup
I did
 
(and girls, if you girls have seen it you may feel free to say so)
 
8:58 AM
They fell at the same time
@Gemtastic (There's no unicorns here)
*girls
 
Not that you need to see it to know/understand it, but it was fun to see
@IsmaelMiguel Yes, there are
 
@Gemtastic Right............ Unicorns here............... I mean, girls!
 
@IsmaelMiguel As long as by "unicorn" you don't mean this: urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Unicorn&defid=4870912
 
@Gemtastic By unicorns I mean "mystical non-existing creatures"
 
Yeah, women in IT aren't unicorns.
And there's at least one here
At this very moment
 
9:03 AM
Can't see her.
I forgot my "mystical glasses".
 
It's ok, you don't have to see it to know it
 
Then.....how...... Huh???
 
Well, you can't see if there are guys here either
 
I am very tempted to just move the stuff ...
 
@jacwah Simon is a guy. Your argument is somewhat invalid. But yeah, I could be a dog or made out of cups. Who knows?
@Vogel612 What to where?
 
9:08 AM
Just so you know, just because there's a girl on the picture it doesn't mean it's a girl... So sorry to break this to you, but that sexy cleavage girl PM:ing you yesterday wasn't even human...
3
;P
 
@IsmaelMiguel idle talk about who's what and alcohol and caffeine to the nth monitor
 
I'd be fine if you removed it. It was just idle chatter while there's no official business
 
Don't want to be heavy-handed though.
 
Well, when necessary, you have to and I see no problem with that.
It's our fault for being noisy
 
80 messages moved from The 2nd Monitor
 
9:16 AM
@Gemtastic Huh? What girl? What PM? o.O
@Vogel612 What do you mean?
@Gemtastic I'm still trying to understand what you mean...
 
Don't bother :P
 
Please, explain
Or you were trying to just meth around with me?
*mess
 
@Gemtastic @IsmaelMiguel Figured it out yet?
 
@Mast No, I didn't
 
Why did you ping me?
 
9:26 AM
I really don't get it
Translation would be fine
 
@Gemtastic I linked to your message, the ping was kind of a by-product.
 
ah
Carry on then
 
g is the force exerted on you
It's what's pulling you to the ground.
M is your mass
 
Translation: gravity
 
The heavier you are, the more attractive you are.
Literally.
That formula shows why you can't escape a black hole if you come too close.
Too close = r becomes too small.
 
9:30 AM
r is what? The distance?
And the G?
 
r is the distance, yes. It's the r of radius because it's usually used to calculate the gravity for spheres (planets, stars, the like)
 
Now I get it!
r is the radius because it is a pseudo-circle around you, centered with the planet's code
I could draw it, if possible
 
"what what" in the butt?
 
Yes.
 
@Gemtastic I hate that song!
Now, the misteries of the G
 
9:36 AM
G is the gravitational constant, which for now should just be considered some constant value.
 
Well, that's what coming into mind with all that what in that question :P
 
That's pretty confusing
 
Yes.
 
I get it :/ but why that music? Why does it even exist!?
 
small g is gravity, G is a constant
g changes if you move closer or further away
 
9:38 AM
But that constant represents what?
 
Because someone wanna do it in his butt, in his butt?
 
The gravity pull at the surface?
@Gemtastic :facepalm:
 
Guys...
 
Phrancis' image describes how I feel now
 
No, it's a constant used to calculate ALL gravities.
 
9:39 AM
Which is?
 
um... nobody actually seems to like what you're talking about, except you two ... or at least that's what I read out of skiwi's message...
 
@Vogel612 I'm not enjoying it that much. But it is someWHAT related to that link.
 
It's a matter of proportionality.
G is small, very small.
 
Around 1e-10?
 
e-10, e-11, I'd have to look up the exact value
But now you know how to calculate how strong the earth is pulling on you.
And why it's pulling less on you if you're in an airplane.
 
9:43 AM
Badum tss :P
 
ooo, physics.
 
Well, when you're higher than ground, which is usually in an airplane.
 
I really love physics
But my brain is too limited to understand it
 
im like that but with women
 
Don't try to understand women. They understand eachothers and they don't get along very well...
Guys just say in your face that they hate you
Girls will stab you and pretend that nothing's wrong
 
9:48 AM
@IsmaelMiguel Not necessarily...
 
@Mast It is like that with me. If I hate you, I say it in your face. But I don't hate you, so, I didn't said it.
 
what have I started
ABANDON THREAD
 
What has started cannot be unstarted.
 
I don't get that reaction...
Can any of you explain it, please?
 
knowyourmeme.com/memes/abandon-thread
 
9:54 AM
I don't get the reaction
I get what "abandon thread" means
 
He started a discussion without the intent of starting a discussion.
 
Oh
It wasn't a discussion
But my opinion doesn't change
I'll drop this bomb here: I somewhat hate Jamal's edits. Like, they are annoying! Whitespace changes, butchering English, Removing newlines to cram the text in 1 line, change 1 letter (if you cut a word and paste it, even if you change 1 letter, it counts as more) and other edits.
 
Jamal's edits usually make posts more readable. They overall increase the quality of questions.
 
"The idea is that chat will be augmented" --> does this makes it more readable?
"The idea is that the chat will be augmented" --> this is the original
 
Context?
It depends on what chat is targeted.
Chat in general, a specific chat room or a specific event of people chatting.
 
10:04 AM
A specific chat: The 2nd Monitor

Q: "The 2nd Monitor" chatroom translator

Ismael MiguelFor those who go to The 2nd Monitor chatroom, you already know how bad I am at remembering everything. And, sometimes, the new visitors will wonder what something means. For that, I've developed a very simple chat translator. ;(function(window, undefined){ 'use strict'; var memes = { ...

There
I cringe everytime I read that sentence
 
In that case I'd leave it at the original.
 
That's what I did.
He butchered the English everywhere! Except in the title and in one other sentence. Which I used and left attribution to him.
 
You're exaggerating. His first edit was perfectly fine.
Rev5
 
The new title, I agree!
I love it
The change he made, from "to remember" to "at remembering"?
Loved it! Kept it!
Removing the "the" before "chat"? HECK NO!
 
Why did you rollback to Rev4?
Rev 5 was better
 
10:13 AM
Because of the missing "the"
And there were too many "the" missing
 
So re-insert the the and leave the rest.
 
It was WAY faster to revert and it sends a clear message: don't touch the "the" before "chat"
 
You didn't send a clear message.
Sending a clear message would be re-inserting the the
 
I wrote about it on the chat as well.
 
It would say I agree with your edit, but please leave the the alone.
 
10:16 AM
If he wants, he's free to edit the usual whitespace
 
Did you talk with Jamal about this?
 
Not exactly
I dropped an angry message
And yes, I responded to a few messages from him, as far as I remember
 
@IsmaelMiguel Is that in line with your wish to send a clear message?
Or was it just to make clear how you feel about it, without conveying the actual message?
 
It was to leave a message: if you touch, don't screw up.
 
That's like saying Don't be a human
 
10:20 AM
I don't remember exactly what I said.
I can try to look it up
in The 2nd Monitor, 12 hours ago, by Ismael Miguel
@Jamal Dude, you partially murdered the English in my question
You can read from there
 
You never made your message clear.
 
in The 2nd Monitor, 12 hours ago, by Ismael Miguel
"The idea is that chat will be augmented" --> Really nice English
How can I be more clear than that? Removing the sarcasm?
 
That's not the relevant passage in in the first Rev
Every 5 seconds, the chat will be scraped in search of new messages. is
 
What do you mean?
 
The problem started with Rev5 and it's rollback Rev6.
The missing the there is in above sentence.
 
10:30 AM
But it isn't the only missing the
There are more
 
When introducing a problem, introduce the start of the problem FIRST.
 
That was the first butcher I noticed
But anyway, Jamal is the least of my problems
I have a bigger one in my hands
That question has only 1 answer
Massively upvoted
Even though that I described a bug in it, when it was with only 1-2 upvotes
 
@IsmaelMiguel Can you use his suggestions to make it work?
 
Yes, most of his code will work.
But the bug is nasty
 
So don't copy it verbatim.
Merge your code with his.
Keep the good stuff, leave out the bug.
 
10:45 AM
But do what about the answer?
Can't accept it
Can't upvote it
The poster read the comments and didn't changed
 
@IsmaelMiguel Why not?
 
Because it has a bug
 
At least part of his answer is useful.
Don't use the bug part.
 
It is
And part is a kick in my balls
 
The bug could be a reason not to accept it, but upvoting is different.
Upvotes are for when it's valuable.
 
10:52 AM
Now comes more trouble:
 
You got value from a part of the answer, so, upvote.
 
I want to use his re-write and fix the bug myself
The bug is relatively easy to fix for me
 
So post your own implementation as an answer, stating you used his answer as example and tell what part you fixed and why.
Sounds like a good answer to write.
 
I was thinking about posting a follow-up
But that makes really a lot of sense
Thanks for the idea!
I've asked about this yesterday
All I got was "upvote it", "accept it" and nothing else
 
No problem :-)
 
10:57 AM
"The 2nd Monitor" translator - v1.2 incoming!
 
47 messages moved from The 2nd Monitor
 
11:46 AM
@IsmaelMiguel Your Translator got pinned in the 2nd BTW, didn't know if you noticed.
It should help getting more answers.
 
I really didn't noticed
I've just re-written it
Let me try it out
Monking
CARP
 
Jamalized
Noonking
 
Not working
dang...
 
What happened?
 
My rewrite doesn't work
 
 
3 hours later…
2:45 PM
Looks about right for FizzBuzz, not?
 
Yeah I think so
Answering some questions?
 
No, just got a bad idea in my head during work this afternoon.
 
Aha?
 
It would make the whole thing a lot more complicated ^^
People are always asking about how to make their FizzBuzz more efficient.
Since FizzBuzz is about learning new languages, that's usually not a problem.
Now, I want to learn a lot of languages.
I'm thinking about making one of the most inefficient FizzBuzzes in the history of FizzBuzz.

Sounds good
 
2:53 PM
Horribly good.
 
Maybe a bit too horrible
You'll have to post it up for review
 
@jacwah Of-course.
 
3:18 PM
I'm having second thoughts about running this command...
head -c32000 /dev/random | ./busybox vi -
