7:03 PM
not as bad as .DS_store
 
Even worse: __MACOSX
 
yes, I (happily) didn't remember that
 
@Upgoat I'm ready now. I reloaded the CAPTCHA and, although it gave me two, one of them was identifying the position of a road sign, and the other one was identifying food, which apparently counts the ingredients for a drink next to the drink (which I guessed!).
 
@wizzwizz4 ...you are bit confirmed??
 
@trichoplax no.
 
7:13 PM
:/ I'm clicking the grant access button butt nothing is happening
 
That was curl codegolf.stackexchange.com, maybe @trichoplax was in there.
 
@Upgoat I find CAPTCHAs hard, and, when I find it hard to word things in chat, I plug numbers into a program I wrote that will generate semi-coherent text, and then I make the text fit the English grammar rules.
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ El'endiaStarman explained it all I understand now :)
 
@Upgoat Just got the email that it's shared.
 
@trichoplax what was it?
 
7:14 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ this
 
@Bálint aah, @AlexA. in his native habitat. On a mac. Literally, sitting on a mac.
 
@Upgoat Is the code moduled?
See, I made a QWERTY-based typo. That means I pass the Turing test, right?
 
@El'endiaStarman Whenever I see @username in a challenge post I think "That doesn't work!" but in this case it actually pinged me. Who would have thought...
 
@wizzwizz4 :O congrats on passing it!
 
@Upgoat Yay, you agree that I could pass it. That's a relief.
 
7:16 PM
> I spent my time reading the autoexec.bat on a Windows 98 SE, and in doing so taught myself enough DOS to write a Hello, World! program.
 
@trichoplax Hahaha, indeed, indeed...
 
@wizzwizz4 I'm curious how you did that
 
@Bálint Yes, I did.
 
@wizzwizz4 It's just a CAPTCHA though. We're not saying you could pass a real Turing test :P
 
@wizzwizz4 yeah. run 'repl' and then type a string. You'll see it says unlinked token meaning it couldn't load the string class
 
7:17 PM
Batch != DOS
Batch is a "language", DOS is an operating system
 
@Bálint I saw @echo off and then cls. I worked out that cls meant "clear screen` and I worked out that echo echoed things, unless you said on or off, and that @ silenced the output of a command.
@Bálint But DOS's internal shell is considered part of DOS by most people.
 
huh, Martin changed his name
 
@wizzwizz4
> A batch file is a kind of script file in DOS - Wikipedia
 
The nightmare is happening!
PPCG is disbanding!
 
@zyabin101 ...
 
7:21 PM
Name changing takes over the world!
 
^
 
We have to take counter measures.
 
Double the waiting period between name changes to 60 days!
 
:O
@MartinEnder, did you get married? :P
 
7:22 PM
@El'endiaStarman I did. :)
 
......I was not expecting to guess that right. Congrats! :D
2
 
@MartinEnder congrats!
 
@MartinEnder WHAT DID YOU THINK????
 
@Upgoat Congratulatory messages (and happy birthday wishes) are exempt from ninja'ing.
 
@El'endiaStarman oh ok
 
7:24 PM
thanks guys :)
 
@MartinEnder nice!
 
So, you took your wife's last name instead of she taking yours?
 
@MartinEnder Congratulations!
 
So did you take your wife/husbands last name?
ninjuic'ed
 
@El'endiaStarman yes
 
7:25 PM
You just disbanded PPCG!
 
Hope you are happy! Did you already go on your honeymoon?
 
@MartinEnder Why did you change your name?
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I like the inclusiveness of your question :)
 
Also, congrats for the name change!
 
@MartinEnder thanks?
 
7:26 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ nope that'll have to wait until August
 
@zyabin101 It's normal for last names to change when two people get married. It's usually the wife, though.
 
I don't know the procedure for the latter, so idk who would change names.
@MartinEnder is it a wife or a husband though?
 
@MartinEnder I actually did a chat search to make sure that your partner was female. :P
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ wife
 
7:27 PM
@El'endiaStarman going the extra mile, huh? :P
 
m.buettner to Martin Buttner was fine, but that is the ultimate name change.
 
All welcome @MartinEnder née Büttner!
 
He comes to disband PPCG!
@MartinEnder Why did you change your name?
 
@MartinEnder Hehe, I was fairly sure you had said "girlfriend" before, but I wanted to be really sure. :P
 
@zyabin101 why not? :)
 
7:28 PM
:)
And you permanently killed the "I can't believe it's not Büttner" meme along the way. :P

@MartinEnder That's not a reason!
 
Apr 29 at 15:22, by Rainbolt
You beat Martin at having the most 'D's in your name.
Sorry, @Dennis.
2
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ But it'll be replaced by memes relating to "Ender"! Beware of the Endermartin...
 
(Middle name and last name don't count unless you add them to your user name. :P)
 
7:30 PM
rofl
 
He's coming to the codegolf site!
He comes!
 
My new sorta-shortened link: v.ht/abcdefghijklmopqrstuvwxyz
@MartinEnder do you have a new meme-name choice?
 
H͌ͫ̄ȅ c̔o͊ͮ̊m̿e̊ͥ̋̈́ͣ͂͊sͧͧͪͧͣ̌͆
 
@zyabin101 Mainly because I liked hers more than mine. What reason did you expect? ;)
 
@zyabin101 Why did I golf code? Because why not?
 
7:32 PM
Good! Now tell that to The Pony when he comes!
He comes!
He's in chat now!
 
@zyabin101 maybe so we don't have to google "unicode umlaut" everytime we want to type his last name :P
 
room implodes
 
@Upgoat ... try holding down the u key for a bit
 
ü
oh ok
 
7:35 PM

@Optimizer do you use OS X? If not, then go buy a mac.
 
cheese n mac?
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ you're 6 years late
@Optimizer just a regular big mac
 
I have a USB stick formatted and stuff for OS X 10.11. Should I make this secretly available online for people to use?
@Upgoat ...
are you on your iPad?
Also, how do you not crack the screen with your hooves?
 
no, I'm on my chair
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ good question
 
me too
 
I uses a stylus
 
are you typing words with the iPad onscreen keyboard?
 
i prefer a cheese n mac over regular big mac
 
7:37 PM
@Upgoat but how do you hold it in your hooves? Duct tape?
 
no I'm typing words with my fingers
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ good question
we hold it between our toes

DEATH TO PLURALS
 
Good thing that in the chat world, the cosmic air exists, and is a bit like nitrous oxide.
Mmm, nitrous oxide.
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Plurals?
 
@MartinEnder I seem to be late to the party, congrats anyway!
 
@flawr thanks :)
 
7:41 PM
@El'endiaStarman DEATHS TO PLURAL
 
@flawr You're more like one of the early ones. :P
 
@El'endiaStarman DEATH TO PLURALS
Plural is a singular word, so I am misusing it.
 
@mınxomaτ ipad =/= mac

@Upgoat He's not.
 
7:50 PM

I hate it when I search for a certain comic and can't find it :/
I searched for so long that Martin changed his name in the meantime

@Upgoat >_> ssshhh

I don't mind that much, but please don't reveal PII of somebody else, even if he did a while ago.

I guess he wants to play Ender's game now
 
7:52 PM
He got married.
 
Martin B.Ender
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ well we already know your full name is "Easterly Irk" and you are a cat, so we pretty much know all PII about you.

@MartinEnder Congratulations! :)

what should my next blog post be on?
 
8:05 PM
Avocados.
Or burritos.
Or both.
 
I have a draft post named "how juic avocad"
 
@Upgoat ...
@Upgoat 10/10 pls finish and post
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ what should the content be?
 
How to juic avocad, what else?
 
but how 2 juic avocad,
should I just make it a step-by-step?
 
8:08 PM
The sandbox has 1003 answers. God golf for us all.
@Upgoat Can we start making a chatbot for here in cheddar?
 
 
The sandbox is in serious need of cleaning up
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ idk ferst prioritee is avocad juic post
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ You can't.
 
I propose we have a community cleanup, where we either flag posts that need deleting, or put the links in a centralized place (like a chatroom made for the purpose) so that mods can easily deal with them
 
8:12 PM
@El'endiaStarman You need to repeat/update this
 
Before Upgoat probably develops a library stackexchange, that contains a front end for the Stack Exchange API and the chat "API".
 
@Upgoat yes, but cheddar will eventually have that functionality?
@zyabin101 ... we don't need that.
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ fof course
 
How do you think Data works?
 
@MartinEnder Congrats on your marriage!
 
8:13 PM
thanks :)
 
I get to do that this July :) Though she's taking my last name because it's shorter and easier to spell
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ pls giv step-by-step of how to juic avocad for the "how juic avocad" bloggoat post
 
first
find teh "True Juicr"
second
"JUIC TEH AVOCAD IN THE TRUE JUICR"
 
@Upgoat Use WikiHow :P
 
you juic by putting avocad inside and hit button says on
 
8:15 PM
And add more tips on how to make the "perfect" avocad juic.
 
@MartinEnder so yeah, enjoy the rollercoaster, try not to crash :p
 
That WikiHow post on avocad juic should be somewhere... there...
 
@Mego oh nice. :) I hope you'll enjoy your wedding as much as we did ours.
 
@MartinEnder Me too. The main event for our wedding is playing laser tag :P
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ can you find my a picture of the tru juicr
 
8:16 PM
@Mego haha, amazing :D
 
Note how @MartinEnder descreetly tried to avoid how much he actually enjoyed the wedding.
 
@Upgoat Found the WikiHow post: wikihow.com/Make-Avocado-Juice
 
If you rearrange the characters of that message and ignore most of them, you get "help me"
 
@Upgoat no
@Mego which message?
 
Deviate from that post. Add more steps. Add more tips. Substanially change that for the Bloggoat post on "how juic avocad"!
 
8:18 PM

But now I can say, I can't believe he's not Büttner!
 
8:46 PM
@Lynn don't most western countries do that?
 
Not Belgium, at least! I’m skimming through this, now, and it’s predictably a mess
“From 4 March 2002 to 4 December 2009, children given both parents' names had to have them separated by a double dash (ex: Dupont--Clairemont).”
 
haha what
 
This just gave me a typographical heart attack and now I’m dead
 
Oh, I didn't know, Belgium didn't have the name change thing. ;)
 
What's the point of a double dash?
 
8:51 PM
@Lynn Apart from the ridiculous double dash that's quite interesting: in Germany one partner can choose to take the double name (but not both), and the kids can never have both names (in the above case they'd have the name of the parent who kept their name)
 
@PhiNotPi It's arguably the best Mario Kart game
In Texas it's much less complicated: by default, the bride takes the groom's name for hetero marriages. Gay marriage hasn't been legal long enough for a tradition to be established, but either can take the other's name. However, that default can be overridden by anyone (groom can take the bride's name, they can combine their names, they can take an entirely different name, they can keep their names, etc.).
 
In Belgium, double-barrelled names are… well:
 
But for the less common cases (like taking a new name), you have to get it approved by a judge
 
(“Concretely, the child of Jan Janssens-Wouters and Petra Peeters-Maes could receive the following ten surnames:”)
 
@Mego oh yeah, I heard that some countries allow making up a completely new name. that sounds quite fun :D
 
8:58 PM
(I think that’s nPr(4, 2) – 2 = 10, because you can’t just take one parent’s name and flip it. For some reason.)
 
In Texas, you can legally change your name to anything that's not offensive/illegal, so long as you pay a fee, fill out some paperwork, and get it approved by a judge.
