@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 trying to make a higher res version of your logo, what was the gradient you used for the gray?

@Maltysen Radial gradient from the top left corner #FFFFFF to the bottom right corner #C0C0C0.

thx

The cyan color is actually #80FFFF.

@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 is that just a paintbrush with anti-aliasing?

7:32 PM
@wizzwizz4 fixed

@Maltysen This is a glow effect, with both inner and outer glow.

Chat puzzling challenge: define floor (the numeric function) without using ceil, floor, or round

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ x-(x%1)

oh, right :p

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ "the largest integer less than or equal to the argument"

"the input" is undefined
:p
better. english is best language

Alternitavely,
```irb(main):001:0> ->n { n = n.to_s.sub(/\..*/, '').to_i; n -= 1 if n < 0; n }[-1.5]
=> -2```

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ How about an approximate floor=)

What could possibly go wrong?

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ js: n=>~~n

7:51 PM
@Upgoat fails for negative numbers

`~~-0.9 -> 0`

It does? Huh
oh

Also, that's arguably a type of rounding (truncating)

>_> i guess i cant read either

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I mean like applying newton to sin(pi*(x-0.5))

7:55 PM
@flawr newton??

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Oh, the newton iteration for finding zeros

oh. much less appetizing

In numerical analysis, Newton's method (also known as the Newton–Raphson method), named after Isaac Newton and Joseph Raphson, is a method for finding successively better approximations to the roots (or zeroes) of a real-valued function. x : f ( x ) = 0 . {\displaystyle x:f(x)=0\,.} The Newton–Raphson method in one variable is implemented as follows: The method starts with a function f defined over the real numbers x, the function's derivative f', and an initial guess x0 for a root...

@VTCAKAVSMoACE I don't know what she's saying half the time, but it sounds really nice

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Ye - but the little jig-like section is awesome.

@VTCAKAVSMoACE >_> how the fuck do you find such good dubstep???

@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Simply: too much listening.

lol

CMC, given an array of integers, remove every consecutive duplicate. e.g. 1 1 2 3 1 1 2 2 --> 1 2 3 1 2

I think that's an actual challenge

triplicates and co. also?

and ^^^

I don't like strings with more than three vowels in a row. Can you write a program that removes all the vowels I don't want from words? You may write a program or function, taking input via STDIN (or closest alternative), command-line argument or function argument and outputting the result via S...

no, there's a better one

How do you close a chat-mini challenge as a dupe?

8:23 PM
You can't

lol

You permaban the author.

Thank goodness.

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ You don't.

Haha, I beat pyth: v.tryitonline.net/…

8:28 PM
@zʏᴀʙiɴ101 my take on it ^
no nose, a smoother glow, and no pixelation
a little smoother on the corners: i.stack.imgur.com/vqoR0.png

nice

Nvmd, that doesn't work.

lol

This works but it's longer tied: v.tryitonline.net/…

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ what challenge?

Ninjuice sounds tasty.

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ well, nowadays, that pyth solution would trivially have the last byte golfed off cuz implicit input

Oh. I don't know anything about pyth.

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ v docs?

8:36 PM
@Maltysen Good!

haha, I haven't even updated the README

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ No

Anybody else here than upgoat, quartata, and conor play tf2?

I have. Not very much.
@Upgoat If I started doccing it, would you want to learn it?

8:38 PM
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ You wanna play later? I haven't played much either. 5.6 hours iirc.

I don't think I have it installed.

@AlexA. I don't know much about brew other than installing things with it, but I think they might be in: ~/Library/Caches/Homebrew
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ yeah! (Especiallly if you make the logo a goat)

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ okay
@Upgoat They aren't.
/usr/local/Cellar is the installed package directory.

@Upgoat okay, cool. I think first I need to get the encoding figured out. Right now, it relies heavily on unprintable characters, which is a terrible idea.

@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ No, I think he's right. It installs the end product to `/usr/local/Cellar/` but it downloads to the `Caches` directory. Not sure where it untars and compiles it though.

8:45 PM
I'll probably switch over to utf-8+custom encoding at some point.

@AlexA. oh cool
@AlexA. your cousin needs to be introduced to windows. ^^

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ you should totally use gitbooks for the docs

I've never heard of that. I was planning on using github wiki.

9:06 PM
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ You should use Gitbooks.

@Quill 'night! :-D

the Apple Store told me they'll fix my MacBook for free, unless they find water damage (in which case, it would be \$900)

Is it allowed to submit a Python solution like the below: {"a":"b"} if the challenge is to output b if the input is a, and error otherwise? I could claim, "It is an anonymous function, it just requires a different syntax:" f = {"a":"b"} f[input()] Is this allowed?

@LuisMendo ...
@flawr I linked that as a gif earlier.
@Quill nice
how old is it?

@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ how ninja of you, preposter

Swell, the featured questions feed bug has been reported in 2014.
7

I've created this feed user a little more than four months ago. It is supposed to post featured questions from Anime & Manga. However, it never worked. The feed is currently empty, since we have no featured questions right now currently has two questions. However, whenever there are featured ...

even as a CM, JNat couldn't get it to be status completed ;-;

@Quill oh cool
the apple store stops servicing them after 6-7 years, just fyi.

Slapped a bounty on it.
My precious meta repz... :/

10:36 PM
Meta SE bounties have always bothered me. I feel like there should be a better way to attract SE's attention
especially considering they don't need the rep

yeah

You should form a picket line outside their HQ.

waffles are a better way to get their attention

@Quill I don't think he was a CM when that was posted.

yeah, I figured

10:41 PM
Ok, fine. Picket line with waffles.

@quartata And everyone else does? :P

Weeeeeell, I dunno. There's a bit of difference between gaining rep as a regular member and as an employee imo.

My Google Now only responds to "OK Windows" >.>
wtf

considering there are users with more MSE rep than staff members ;-)

10:44 PM
Hey Quill, do you have experience making Homebrew formulae for OS X?

"OK Windows, what the hell?"

"OK Windows, where'd Google go? Is there something you need to tell me?"
Windows hides knife

I tried it on mine to see if it was an easter egg or something, but it doesn't resond to that or Siri.

On iOS it's "Hey Siri," not "OK Siri."

Oh, I was just trying Siri alone.
Aaaaand that doesn't work either :(

10:46 PM
D:

Both OK Poodle and OK Noodle work, though. Minibits loves doing that for some reason.

@AlexA. I saw your ping, and your post. I don't know those unfortunately ;-;

No problem, just thought I'd ask.

@Geobits you gotta turn it on in the settings

>_>

10:55 PM
Siri worries me when it starts talking from my pocket during a movie
maybe I should turn off NSA spy mode Hey Siri

I have a feeling we're not talking about the exact same thing.

@Dennis Well, I mean employees need it even less

I'm trying to figure out if Google Now responds to anything beside the usual trigger. I don't have an iThing.

oh
on a side note, Mac has had voice control for a few years but it's pretty primitive

Oh, built in? I didn't know that.

11:00 PM
yeah, I use to play chess with it <_<

does anyone know if there is a way to shorten the path displayed on a windows console using a command? I.e., to change how it displays?

@Quill i don't get the big deal with the NSA spying on people. I mean, even if it is, what do you have to hide? them observing you does not change your life in (nearly) any way, so should it mattter at all?
@Quill same but it took to long to figure out what I was saying.

maybe australian siri is smarter

You don't need to have something to hide to need privacy.

@Quill Sounds a lot sexier better
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ need or want

11:03 PM

Even if it is only want, yes, I damn sure do want privacy. If they have no legitimate reason or suspicion, they shouldn't be listening/watching. It's really that simple.

I got into it and it was a little creepy. But in that case, government survalaince did make a difference in everyday life, otherwise the book would be very boring

┌༼◉ل͟◉༽┐

@Geobits But what differene does it make?

@Quill I'm pretty sure it's had that since Mac OS 8 actually

11:05 PM
@AlexA. 0_0

@BaldBantha Beside the massive waste of government resources, the total invasion of privacy, and actually making it harder to catch bad actors? Oh, not much.

Either the sage or the exhibitionist is me
@Geobits But in your daily life, it doesn't, and the privacy thing is the main argument people have against it

Yes. It does. People act differently when being watched. It's such a common thing I don't see why anyone thinks otherwise.

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ I am the nihilist.

11:08 PM
The xkcd one is a joke. This more accurately describes my philosophy on internet privacy: smbc-comics.com/?id=2508

@Geobits It's the observer effect.

Kinda, yeah... so how can you say it has no effect on daily lives?
There are things I'd rather not send or say if there's a third party watching. Just sayin.

I mean, I wouldn't know, I've been observed my entire life. that's probobly why i'm OK with it.
OH HOLY MOLY
Ive been brainwashed by the NSA

no you didn't
the NSA did

Trudat

11:17 PM
Context.

Is the new Top Gear worth watching?
I liked it a lot, the specials at least

@HelkaHomba As a show yes, as Top Gear, no

@Geobits so that's where you hid the treasure

OK mods is Geobits in trouble or something? or is it like a client side glitch

11:20 PM
It's a joke...

OOOOHHhhh

^^^ surely

Idea: we send messages, and then geobits responds in unary
:PP

@Geobits You did what with the bodies??

:30147154 PLEASE, THINK OF THE CHILDREN

11:22 PM
:30147154 You really intend to vote for Trump?

wow, man, just wow
And you want to ban avocados? Wow.

DO you love minibits as much as avocad?

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Best just to pretend he's not here I guess

It's the only solution
I'm starting to like the grey borders in between messages

RIP Geobits.
:se rtp?
Oh hey, I totally entered that into the wrong thing.
:/

Mini challenge: Replace every instance of `b` or `B` in a string with `bits` and `Bits` respectively. e.g. `Bubble` -> `Bitsubitsbitsle`
8
`Life is bad.` -> `Life is bitsad.`

Extremely straightforward solution: v.tryitonline.net/…

What I miss? @Geobits pissing off every mod and CM on the site?

@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Bitseats me. Geobitsits is just bitseing bitsizzare I bitset.

lol

Oh hey, I'm an idiot. I did it in 15 when I could have done it in 8: Íbã/°its

@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ single line multiple commands in vim?

Hi @Doorknobits

11:54 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Not quite. It's the same thing as `:%s/b\c/\0its/g`

okay
wait wtf
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ htf does that work

`:%s/` equals global search and replace.
`b\c` the letter b, but ignore case.
`/\0its` replace it with the entire matched text (b or B) followed by "its"

oh cool

I agree, it's awesome. Vim's regex works like this: http://vimregex.com/
And V does the same thing, just shorter.

cool
