Suggest you take another look at the question.
He editted the code several times
The revisions are weird in general
it got opened and then closed again...?
 
@Kaz You bet. It's excellent.
3
 
Anyway, I think that question should get reopened, I don't see anything broken with it
 
@Pimgd Did you test it and did it work as expected?
 
Hmm, I didn't actually run the code on a computer, instead spending about 5-10 minutes running it on my brain VM
2
 
The original was broken, I'm not sure about the other revisions.
I closed it once and it got closed 2 times. That's enough reason for me not to look at it. BCdotWEB and @Jamal closed it last time, ask them.
Making something that isn't thread safe into something that is, is a feature request. It's not a request for a review. If it's not a request for a review, it's not on-topic here. Please take a look at the help center. — Mast 21 secs ago
 
10:26 AM
works
for the parts where I care
might have funky side effects (somehow not that I see any, but you never know?) but sure looks like it works
I have a lot of faith in brain VM, though

Q: Improvement in working code for Form Validation in PHP

UnbreakableGiven the following input values from a form, create a method or methods to validate the input based on their requirements.

it's very good at Java
 
@Pimgd It runs, but does it work?
 
reeead the codeee
it tests several things
yes they're not unit tests
but look at it
 
lol
 
10:32 AM
pop empty throws exception: passed
peek empty throws exception: passed
push doesn't throw: passed
push, then pop gives value: passed
push, then pop, then pop throws exception because empty: passed
push 1, push 2, push 3, then pop pop pop gives 3 2 1: passed
push 1, push 2, pop 2, push 3, peek equals 3, pop 3, pop 1: passed
it works
 
I see, voted to re-open.
 
and if it doesn't work then I'd like to see how
 
@Quill You may want to re-consider as well.
 
push 1, push 1, then pop 1, pop 1: passed
so it handles duplicate entries too
all that crap is handled
 
plot twist
CAL.DURATION is actually a price
 
10:45 AM
wat
 
yep
 
yes but wat
today I get to dig through intentionally obfuscated code.... which is doing things it shouldn't.
I wish I had lifelines like on "who wants to be a millionaire"
 
"What does this code do?" "ask the audience please"
 
You get the 50:50, where you get to point at one class, name a functionality, and we'll grey out half the functions which are definitely not related
 
50% of people say: Absolutely nothing useful at all
 
10:54 AM
You get the help of the audience, ... which will just devolve into WTF
And you get to call the original author
but they won't pick up.
 
the question is: Is there a way to preserve code review entries? or merge it with successful change set — profesor79 41 secs ago
 
That, or they'll say something like "yeaahhhh that was a looooong time ago..."
and then your 30 secs are up

THIS ISN'T HELPING
 
@Mast so it works, or it doesn't?
 
@Quill Definitely looks like it works.
 
@Pimgd wow

okay. I'll add my vote toward reopening

It's open again, just needs more votes
 
It needed to be re-opened, not upvotes.
The initial quality of the post was dramatic.
 
eh, -3 is still overkill
 
I gave it the answer I wanted to give
 
11:04 AM
throwIfEmpty(), is that how you do exception handling in Java?
 
I prefer that method
it looks ehhh right now
you could also not do it, so to say
but I prefer doing that and keeping it consistent
because for more complex crap, I might have to check if you have rights to do what you want to do
and then it's more than a single check
 
Ah well, it works.
 
I'm not sure which parts are intentionally obfuscated and which parts are unintentionally obfuscated
(it all looks like crap)
 
@Quill LMFAO

not the next.user.js but user.js does
 
should probably change the link in the readme....
I will do that.....give me a second
 
yeah, sounds good

@Malachi I just added a few memes and a few users. fixed a broken regex. nothing major
 
@chillworld it's in the EULA, but no one reads it
 
I don't think there's much more to fix in that repo
 
12:17 PM
there are 7 issues...
 
the question itself was a real "newcomer" question, off topic and better suited on stackoverflow itself
but if I look at the code, it can be a nice question later when it works
 
Let's hope user is either 13 or claiming to be 13 by the time it works.
That CR question wasn't a good question though.
 
nice one of his code => public class event implements ActionListener

@Vogel612 Can you or predicates in Ruby? every 1.day, at: '2am' "OR" at: '2pm' do
 
neither nor exists on CR though
 
@PinCrash that wouldn't work
every 1.day, at: '2am' do
 
2:55 PM
it's not an if-condition (or predicate) you have there
 
This expansd to
 
but a named argument from what I can see
 
every(1.day, { at: '2am' })
a: b in ruby expands to a hash, so at: '2am' becomes { at: '2am' }
so you wouldn't be able to say at is 2am OR 2pm there
 
Would be appropriate?
 
I doubt it
 
2:56 PM
(seems only tangentially related)
 
I don't think it needs tags
The first line should be nuked, though
 
I think it needs to be on SO, as it's a "specific programming question"

he's asking to replace X tech with Y tech

I think Vogel nailed the edit though.
 
2:57 PM
I would have laughed so hard if he had created the tag.
 
I flagged it for migration to SO, we'll see how it goes
 
I don't think it is on-topic on CR but yeah maybe it would fit on SO
 
Somebody should put a comment on it.
 
2:58 PM
@Mast on it
 
I think this is one of the reasons why SO -> CR migrations are almost always bad and CR -> so migrations are usually okay (and rare)
we actually discuss whether or not to migrate...
 
Aye.
 
@DanPantry that's mostly because of the sheer scale of SO though
 
@Vogel612 yes, that is true
with lots of users you can expect lots of dumb migration requests
 
Every damn time I want to migrate something on SO it doesn't let me migrate to where it should go
