Dang, if this was compiled I wouldn't have to be worried about
 
@QPaysTaxes maybe a shebang-esque thing
 
@QPaysTaxes Probably not, but I don't wanna write the version number on the first line ;)
 
If it was semi-compiled like Java, it'd just be a line at the top of the compiled version
 
@Geobits Autoinserted the first time you run the interpreter on it?
With a flag to disable the behavior
 
3:00 AM
@Geobits maybe then you could only use the lowest common denominator if you don't?
 
File extension change :)
 
Like, .ctn1, .ctn2, .ctn3? That seems worse than adding the version
 
Of course it is, that's the point.
 
Oh I thought you were being serious
 
I don't normally enjoy things I find on Skeptics.SE but this was cool (context)
 
3:03 AM
Hello hello
 
Yea, I think I have a picture I took from a C-130 doing that somewhere around here...
 
I like how three people thought this answer was useful
 
@Quill hello
 
@Quill kiznaiver is really good you should watch it
also, hello
 
I haven't heard of that one yet
 
@Downgoat did you end up choosing a style for cheddar's logo?
 
@QPaysTaxes ... weren't you complaining about it only having 2 upvotes earlier?
 
@QPaysTaxes Whether or not the OP finds it useful, it will be useful to anyone who ever has to read dhjeir code.
 
@Quill yeah
 
@Doorknob Huh? No, I was complaining about someone unupvoting my golfy answer.
 
3:04 AM
@Downgoat Hopefully it's the dark orange on black. Right?
 
@Maltysen damn the animation looks great
 
2 days ago, by QPaysTaxes
Unrelated, I'm a little sad that my answer telling people to comment well only has two upvotes. I thought people thought that was important (also I want more green crack)
 
@Geobits ^^^

I like how three people thought this answer was useful
 
But, but... good cheddar is orange, not yellow :(
 
@Doorknob That's not "earlier", that's "two days ago"
 
doesn't matter
@Geobits y'all voted for this one
 
"earlier" implies recently
 
@Downgoat I didn't ;)
 
3:06 AM
Also, I was mostly joking with the first
 
@QPaysTaxes when you live an eternity as a doorknob, a few days is nothing
 
I like how 11 people thought this answer was useful

Q: Coding Around The Clock

Helka HombaWrite a single line program two or more characters long that contains no line terminators and takes no input. For example, your program might be: MyProgram When your program is arranged into the shapes a clock's hands make at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock, it needs to output the corresponding hour n...

 
@Downgoat If you want to indicate that it's a programming language...I'm not sure you've got there
 
@HelkaHomba brb, adding curly brace around logo
 
3:07 AM
@Quill I'm an immortal unicorn, and I can count days.
 
Mmm, curly cheese braces
 
@QPaysTaxes it... does?
 
That's not cheese, it's processed cheese food. You can tell by the yellow.
 
@HelkaHomba you got curly cheese in your braces?
 
How does printable-ascii shaped macaroni not exist?!
 
3:08 AM
@HelkaHomba Oh that's so cool!
 
@Geobits of course it's processed, how else is it supposed to interpreter the code?
 
@Downgoat I think there are laws about how you can market your cheese if it's not actually cheese :P
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ > The initial program arrangement (MyProgram as is) does not need to do anything. Only the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock arrangements need to have correct, well-defined output.
 
@Doorknob In my dialect, yeah
 
@Geobits please link
 
3:09 AM
@HelkaHomba I'm sorry, I'm an idiot
 
Nah, it's fine
 
If you're using it as "this happened earlier", and you're not giving a specific reference point for "than what", the reference point is implied to be "now" and it's implied to have happened recently
 
Processed cheese (also known as prepared cheese, cheese product, plastic cheese, or cheese singles) is a food product made from cheese (and sometimes other, unfermented, dairy by-product ingredients); plus emulsifiers, saturated vegetable oils, extra salt, food colorings, whey or sugar. As a result, many flavors, colors, and textures of processed cheese exist. Its invention is credited to Walter Gerber of Thun, Switzerland, in 1911. == AdvantagesEdit == Processed cheese has several technical advantages over traditional cheese, including: far longer shelf-life; resistance to separating when cooked...
 
At least in my dialect, which is about 90% wrong
I think this is general, though
 
3:11 AM
Your language is like the Velveeta of cheeses. Easily meltable, but not very tasty.
 
@Downgoat >:(
I'm not sure how those keys got shuffled
:29256470 [tag:test] oh wait you got it
 
ಠ_ಠ who here downvoted my jquer answer
 
@Maltysen oh don't worry about it I got it. Ty tho.
 
Hmm, if you have three items in an order, is any permutation of those items a rotation, with an optional reversal, of that initial ordering?
Nope. ABC => ACB
 
@Geobits I hate that stuff :(
 
3:13 AM
@Downgoat raises hand
Sorry, it's just about as close to the textbook definition of "not useful" as you can get imo.
 
@Geobits Link? I wanna downgoat too
 
How does one make tags like that?
 
Nah, I'm not gonna link-bomb him ;)
 
@QPaysTaxes same
we r kidding ofc
 
@AshwinGupta Oh, but it does happen :P
 
3:15 AM
@AshwinGupta Um. Sure, kidding. That.
 
At least I am, I can't speak for the evil unicorn man...
@QPaysTaxes :O [gasp]..
 
@Geobits ;_; why?
 
It's not my fault you linked me to a jokey answer to a five-plus-year-old question.
 
I went to your profile to go find it. I looked at it, was about to downvote it, and then I realized I already had.
 
3:21 AM
@Geobits You downvote this too?:

A: RegEx match open tags except XHTML self-contained tags

bobinceYou can't parse [X]HTML with regex. Because HTML can't be parsed by regex. Regex is not a tool that can be used to correctly parse HTML. As I have answered in HTML-and-regex questions here so many times before, the use of regex will not allow you to consume HTML. Regular expressions are a tool th...

 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ night!
 
@Downgoat If he hasn't, it's impossible now. The post is locked.
 
@Downgoat Can't. It's been locked since before I ever saw it.
 
Kobi: I think it's time for me to quit the post of Assistant Don't Parse HTML With Regex Officer. No matter how many times we say it, they won't stop coming every day... every hour even. It is a lost cause, which someone else can fight for a bit. So go on, parse HTML with regex, if you must. It's only broken code, not life and death. — bobince Nov 13 '09 at 23:18
and bai for real
 
3:22 AM
@Downgoat Also, that one is funny.
 
@Geobits but would you?
 
@Doorknob It really is, speaking as a pony.
 
@Downgoat Probably. But there's also a difference between that one and yours. That was a meme-starter. Yours is a meme-jumper. I give more points for creativity :P
 
Oh wait, makes sense. Geobits, the downvoter, nvm.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ BAI
and BAI to everyone else too
 
3:23 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ bai
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ bai
@EasterlyIrk bai
 
Can we please stop spelling worse than five-year-olds?

^
teh interwebs is no excuse for this
 
@Doorknob nu
 
@Doorknob how do you type as a doorknob? It's bard enough with hooves ._.
 
3:25 AM
Y U no liek spel rong?
 
@Downgoat ...Since when do you play the lute?
 
@Doorknob same reason, many people say lol, and not, "that was funny"
 
Uh, no it's not.
 
@QPaysTaxes i meant hard, not bard.
 
@Downgoat So type it
@Doorknob What's not what?
 
3:28 AM
2 mins ago, by Downgoat
@Doorknob same reason, many people say lol, and not, "that was funny"
 
Oh, okay
@Downgoat Same reason as what?
 
@QPaysTaxes ignore first comma
 
But the comment was "please stop", not "why"
 
@QPaysTaxes my answer was, "not anytime soon"
 
3:31 AM
@Geobits randomeyes.jpg
 
@Geobits Wheye did you post this?
(sorry)
 
@Doorknob You should be! Everyone knows puns are not accepted here.
 
@Doorknob Never apologize for this.
 
@Downgoat There's a difference between a pun and intentionally inane misspelling.
 
@AlexA. ... okay, I spent way too long trying to find the pun in this message.
 
3:32 AM
@Downgoat Oh, I see
 
@AlexA. ohhhhhhhhh, just saw the pun :|
 
@Doorknob The pun was in your heart all along
 
Now Downgoat nose why I spelled it like that.
 
@Doorknob You did finally find it though, right?
 
@Geobits Yeah, of course. It's pretty obvious.
 
3:33 AM
@Doorknob these puns are really ear-itating
 
@Downgoat Oh, stop being so cheeky.
 
@Doorknob Ok, just checking. I didn't want it to go over your head, since you're only about waist-high.
 
You guys are c-- uh, nope, that'd be inappropriate
 
@QPaysTaxes Chairs?
 
@QPaysTaxes CJam programmers?
 
3:36 AM
@QPaysTaxes cars?
 
Maybe he was referring to C--, the language.
 
@AlexA. >:( Stop cursing! You're supposed to set a good example!
 
@QPaysTaxes Cool?
 
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ ew no you guys aren't cool at all
 
I can only think of a few three-letter C-words that would fit that blank, and none of them are good >_<
 
3:37 AM
@QPaysTaxes D:
 
@Geobits The -- indicates it was cut off, not the length
 
@QPaysTaxes :(
 
Anyway time to sleep
Night!
 
Good night
 
@QPaysTaxes You shouldn't be cutting off people's C-words...
 
3:38 AM
@QPaysTaxes I can say for certain our cool factors are in the high 90th percentile
 
@Quill That sounds a bit contradictory >_>
 
Any vim users cough @Doorknob have any thoughts on what would make vim a better golfing language?
 
It's 0.90%
 
I'm looking for inspiration.
 
@Quill We're all so cool, it's like a refrigerator in here B)
 
3:38 AM
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ If it made sense
 
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ Why do you always start talking about this right before I have to go to sleep? :P
 
@Doorknob Why do you always have to go to sleep right after I start talking about it?
@Quill :(
 
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ Maybe that should tell you something :P
 
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ are you proposing a vim golfing lang?
 
@Downgoat He already started one
 
3:40 AM
He already has one: V
Ninja'd
 
Oh..
 
@Downgoat Now that's a crazy idea!
 
i hope it's not just aliases of vim cimmands :/
 
Please tell me it acronyms to VIGOR. Something stupid like VIm Golf: Oh Really?
 
@Downgoat Part of it is, but only the stuff that I find really useful in vim that takes a lot of keystrokes, e.g. recursive macros.
I'm going to add more on top of that.
Which is why I'm looking for inspiration.
 
3:42 AM
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ ok
 
"Uh, I can read my own code... better invent a golfing language to fix that!"
 
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ I'm really trying to give you inspiration.
 
O rly? I ardly know er!
 
I really misss User Friendly
(I assume that is what you were referencing with VIGOR)
 
I really miss the Quines... They were just so beautiful
 
3:44 AM
@quartata Not really, just the whole "vim and vigor" phrase in general.
 
Oh.
 
@Geobits Ooooh. Vim and vigor. I get it now. That took way too long.
 
If you ever need any evidence that explaining jokes kills them, just link here :(
(although, I'm only half joking. great name, just needs better backronym)
 
How good can a single letter backronym be?
 
? I mean one for VIGOR. That's five letters.
 
3:48 AM
But the name is V
Although VIGOR isn't a bad name.
 
Oh, you already have a name picked out :(
 
I mean, it's not set in stone.
I've posted like 3 answers in it so far.
 
But I already made these V-themed tombstones...
 
@AlexA. 0_0
wat
 
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ see V for Vendetta

3:51 AM
 
Hello @R.Kap!
 
Calculus people out there: what does the δf(x)/δt notation mean? (the δ notation)
 
@Downgoat Hello!
 
@GamrCorps You mean ∂?
 
Probably, never sure on the actual symbol
 
3:52 AM
(devomer)
 
it just looked like a δ to me
 
Oh, it's different from lowercase delta. But anyway, ∂f(x,t)/∂t is the partial derivative of f(x, t) with respect to t.
So you differentiate f with respect to t, treating x (or any other variable in there) as a constant
Does that make sense?
 
Yes! Thanks!
 
I've narrowed down my avatar choices to New Horizons or Lunar Module

My pleasure
 
3:54 AM
Calculus. I can't wait...
 
Calc is fun. Missing the lecture isn't
 
@AshwinGupta Both rickrolls...
 
@AshwinGupta ಠ_ಠ
 
(Yes, I clicked both. ∏.∏)
 
@AshwinGupta nice try
 
3:55 AM
@AlexA. See, this is why I've been asking for downstars.
 
Starring so that others can be subjected to the pain.
@Geobits @Downgoat that's your next name.
 
I promise I'll use them responsibly ;)
 
@AshwinGupta @AlexA. Can you elven this, clear the stars to save kthers from rickroll
 
No
4
 
Ok
 
3:57 AM
I'm not sure I've ever seen elven verbified.
 
Why does "No" have so many stars O_o
 
Yes
Watch the stars come rolling in
crickets
 
@R.Kap yw
Hello @Cyoc
 
Hello
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ what about my range function? ¯( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡ಠ)_/
 
Yay!
 
3:58 AM
@Cyoce your range function is very fast +1
 
@Downgoat Which one?
 
@Geobits If I'm not mistaken, it was requested that I genetically convert something into an elf.
 
@Cyoce (the one conor was talking about) I'm using it in Cheddar if you don't mind
 
@AlexA. That's what I got out of it. Or maybe you should alter something so that it looks elven-made. Could be either.
 
@Downgoat of course I don't mind! I love to see people using my stuff!
 
3:59 AM
I was about post sad violin music, but now I'm going to post this:
