I may have to make a custom CSS sheet if I'm going to keep using SE chat
 
cascading style sheet sheet
 
@undergroundmonorail Now the "cascading" part makes sense
5
 
Well we all know the C in CSS stands for CSS ...
 
GNU's Not Unix!
 
8:02 PM
@Cyoce o.o
 
@undergroundmonorail Technically CSS stands for "Cascading Style Sheets" so, it's Cascading Style Sheets Sheet (a sheet of the sheets)
 
but what if you only have 1 css
checkmate
 
There is only one true css
One CSS to rule them all, One CSS to find them, One CSS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
 
@undergroundmonorail uh what
 
I like your scarf too.
 
8:07 PM
my preCiouSS
 
@MartinBüttner cool scarf
 
right.
 
listen i'm sorry you got caught up in all this silliness
 
thanks.
 
that's my bad
 
8:08 PM
exit stage left
 
Exit is latin for exit. Try it on the online interpreter!

@BrainSteel In the land of Zen Garden, where the styles lie. One CSS...to rule them ALL.
 
Side note: Google suggested searches for "lenny" include (in order) "lenny face," "lenny kravitz," "lenny letter," and "lenny kravitz pants rip."
 
I don't know who he is, but I now immediately feel sorry for this Lenny Kravitz fella.

@AlexA. Oh god I just looked up that last one
 
@quartata Why would you but also what was it
 
@Cyoce That made me laugh a bit too hard haha
 
@AlexA. Oh, it's that guy.
 
8:16 PM
Haha yes indeed
 
@BrainSteel use reply function pls
my eyes hurt
 
That involves using a trackpad. Much slower.
 
uhhhhhh
Isn't this invalid?

@AlexA. I don't want to say since some people here are at work and stuff
Google it yourself
 
"Hardcoding the output"?
 
8:18 PM
@BrainSteel Doorknob has a GitHub repo for SE chat keyboard shortcuts, including replies.
 
if you dare
 
@quartata I'll pass.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Shower it in downvotes if you don't like it
@AlexA. Good idea.
I just said upvotes instead of downvotes
 
@quartata I was wondering XD
 
I'm in a positive mood I guess.
 
8:19 PM
How it had +1/-0 is beyond me.
 
@AlexA. Did it really?
 
had being the operative word
Now it's +1/-4.
 
it almost feels mean
but you know
bombs away
 
And all those downvotes came within like 4 minutes.
 
As an aside, that was my first downvote. \o/
 
8:20 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Ever?
ಠ_ಠ
 
My first permanent downvote.
I think
 
@AlexA. Link?
 
@BrainSteel Aw look at that, you replied. <3
 
It pained me.
 
christ
you weren't kidding
 
8:21 PM
Is that me?
 
^_^
I'm a nice person.
 
Downvotes aren't about being mean, they're about maintaining site quality.
 
^
 
8:22 PM
Don't be afraid to downvote.
 
That's me
I'm surprised there are only 470.
 
i don't vote enough
 
For real
 
Does that show downvotes on deleted posts?
 
I don't think so
 
8:23 PM
Almost all of my downvotes are on deleted posts
 
@AlexA. I think I'll spend another downvote to make my score a multiple of ten ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
@Adriandmen Gotta escape the backslash
 
Me: 1569 upvotes, 19 downvotes.
 
8:24 PM
@El'endiaStarman ಠ_ಠ
 
376 up, 12 down
 
I'm on 3 down.
 
hey @Geobits
 
@BrainSteel \o/
 
this is a conversation you'd win
 
8:26 PM
I actually think Peter Taylor has downvoted more than Geobits.
 
They're comparable IIRC though.
 
Chat mini-challenge (?). Given a natural number n graph a rose with n petals
I was thinking of making a full challenge out of this
 
Or some kind of ?
 
@quartata do it
 
8:27 PM
@AlexA. Yes, graphical output.
I'm not a huge fan of graphical-output challenges usually since they eliminate a lot of languages
 
Same
 
@quartata I have a 13 bytes solution ^_^
 
Geobits
 
@AlexA. holy shit
 
Peter Taylor
 
8:30 PM
He does downvote more than he upvotes
 
sometimes you can smell a picture
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ You do?
 
@quartata Yeah.
 
Can we see it?
 
8:31 PM
Is there an online prototyping environment for tmLanguage definitions? Editing them without an instant preview is a PITA.
 
I'm good, I know.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ k petals
2n petals if n is even, and
n petals if n is odd.
 
@quartata but k is a natural number
 
@quartata Geobits is at about 48.1% upvotes, Peter is at 46.3%.
(percent of total votes)
 
They need to add chat to the SE app
 
8:39 PM
AFAIK they're working on providing an improved mobile chat experience.
 
The bird has spoken
 
i thought that said "the bird is broken" and i was concerned
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ So if the input is even you need to graph cos(n/2 theta) and cos(n theta) if it is odd
Otherwise it is double the petals when even
 
@quartata oh
darn
 
Desmos has modulo so shouldn't be too tricky to fix :)
 
8:44 PM
Yeah, but mod\left(x,2\right)
 
JavaScript people: What's the difference between defining functions like function f(x) and var f = function(x)?
 
i'm not a javascript person but i think one is sugar for the other
 
I've seen code which uses both.
I feel like if they were functionally equivalent, one wouldn't use both in a script.
 
@AlexA. The former is a unary named function, and the latter can be an unnamed or dual-named function
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ What is a dual-named function?
 
8:58 PM
Also, the latter is declared only in the current scope
@AlexA. You have the reference name, and the property name.
 
Does the former declare globally?
 
var f = function car(x){} has f.name == "car"
wait gimme a second
 
Second granted
 
nevermind
they're both current scope defined
 
So then the difference is just that the latter has a .name property?
 
9:02 PM
@AlexA. With the var, there's no big difference. Without, you can modify a global function. jsfiddle.net/5y9yukhu
 
@Dennis Oh interesting. Thanks.
And thank you too, @CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ.
 
@AlexA. No problem ^_^ All I can do for you teaching me some R
 
I taught you some R? o_O
 
Ohhhh CoderPad, right?
 
9:05 PM
Yeah!

`+` <- function(a, b) {
    if (sample(c(TRUE, FALSE), size = 1, prob = c(0.9, 0.1)))
        .Primitive("+")(a, b)
    else
        .Primitive("+")(.Primitive("+")(a, b), 1)
}

The only R code you'll ever need to know
How to make 10% of all addition operations off by 1
 
Can you make that recursive?
So you have a 1% chance of addition being off by 2...
And a 0.1% chance of it being off by 3...
 
^
 
Actually, the percentages would be 9%, 0.9%, 0.09%, etc.
 
That could make a good challenge
 
9:07 PM
> Bork your language's addition functionality
 
APL would win of course but still
@El'endiaStarman I was thinking more like just make a function
Alex-style addition
 
What's up with the 2^31st byte chat room?
 
9:17 PM
@PhiNotPi wet?
 
It's all the stars in this room
^^ star this message to confuse it
 
They're watching us
Gettin' a little happy with the stars there.
 
who is?
I'm all out.
o-o
wat just happened
 
Something something robot overlords...
 
9:21 PM
It looks like it updates every 10 minutes
 
How do you post in it?
 
You can't. It's a gallery.
 
Moderators and employees post in it but regular users can't.
There isn't really a reason for anyone to post there anyway.
 
Room owners too.
 
Oh really?
 
9:25 PM
That's the whole reason to have a gallery. They just can't keep us out, no matter how hard they try.
 
We can "post" in there by starring messages
 
You can't.

:P
 
HAHA!
 
HaHa?

What did I miss
I see something about stars
 
Okay, who made Candy Crush part of the standard Windows 10 installation?
Just installed it earlier today.
 
ugh

o_o
Jolf is beating CJam by a large margin and I have no idea why
 
"large margin"
I can bring mine down to 31 if the input is guaranteed not to contain linefeeds
 
;-;
one stinking byte
 
there we go.
 
9:41 PM
@MartinBüttner whyyyyyyyyy
;-;
Don't you have enough rep? XD
 
CJam cares too much about readability
 
@Cyoce that's why it's a beautiful language
 
@LegionMammal978 Pretty sure there was an option to not install games with Win 10.
 
@MartinBüttner but it should be the last concern in a golfing language...
 
But, aside from that, why wouldn't Microsoft include Candy Crush? It is a popular game...
 
9:46 PM
@Cyoce I'm very glad that CJam doesn't want to squeeze out every last byte at the price of usability, because I'm actually using it a lot outside of golfing.
(which I wouldn't, if the source code had to contain unprintables or stuff like that)
 
Really? I can't imagine it used in production code
Also, what I mean is that it uses two-letter names for functions to make it more clear what they do, while they haven't used all the one letter.
 
@Cyoce obviously not for "production code"
it's a great language to write simple throw-away scripts in, though
 
Ok
 
for very simple computational tasks, typing speed is actually the bottleneck.
 
@quartata Are you actually going to call it that? XD
 
9:49 PM
Call what?
I cannot see replies on mobile.
 
@quartata Call your mother right now young man
@quartata Are you actually going to call your post about addition "Alex-style addition"?
 
Yes absolutely
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
Mayb addition a la Alex
 
That makes no cents.
 
9:52 PM
You'll love the intro I have written for this challenge
 
...I have a feeling I won't.
 
@AlexA. Ohh good catch. It should be addition au Alex.
 
Even fewer cents are coming out of the register now.
 
Yes, it all makes cents when you explain it like that.
 
499 open issues. I wouldn't want to be a VSC dev right now :D
 
9:59 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ aaaaand, back up to 31...
 
OO-RAH
I mean, aww.
