3:05 PM
Restart: API quota is 4961.
 
@SmokeDetector fp-
 
sd f
 
@Undo is my MS push deployed? No hurry, just checking - if it is, Smokey will give the new user links. If not, I'll do it manually.
 
oh, I should do that
just a sec
deploying
 
3:20 PM
cool
 
done
 
Smokey'll do the linking, then :)
 
except it'll try to ping in CHQ, of course
 
Oh, does it only post those here? Darn.
Oh well, I'll onebox the message over.
 
Might be possible to throw a room ID in there, but we don't have that in metasmoke anyway
 
3:27 PM
shrug
oh - testing time
 
@SmokeDetector k
 
?
Okay, what did I break?
 
I dunno :P
It did try to send it over the websocket
 
Have you got a record of what went over the socket?
Something in that system didn't work, I just don't know where it is
 
!!/reboot
Probably a bad websocket bind or something
 
3:32 PM
[ SmokeDetector ] SmokeDetector started at rev 4a82d8c (GitHub: Merge pull request #163 from rschrieken/patch-19) (running on Raspberry Pi)
Restart: API quota is 4762.
 
and if it fails again, then we know I did something wrong :)
 
yeah, bad WS bind
@ArtOfCode Try with your bot now
 
Does it work if I try to feed back on something before the reboot?
 
@ArtOfCode Ummmm
I dunno
@SmokeDetector k
yes
Or at least the feedback managed to make it to metasmoke
 
3:34 PM
@SmokeDetector k
 
{ metasmoke } @KarmaBot: It seems this is your first time feeding back to SmokeDetector. Make sure you've read the guidance on your privileges, the available commands, and how to feed back.
5
 
That was... blindingly fast
 
About 7.8ms on the metasmoke end
But pretty good for data going UK -> SE -> Pi -> MS -> Pi -> SE -> UK
 
two seconds between the feedback message and the reply
 
@SmokeDetector Hey, I never got a message like that the first time I gave Smokey feedback.
Would've been useful.
 
3:37 PM
@Randal'Thor That's 'cos I've only just implemented it
 
Also, welcome back @KarmaBot.
 
Committed about six hours ago, deployed about ten minutes ago
 
@Randal'Thor evening evening
 
@KarmaBot Afternoon.
 
@SmokeDetector "how to feed back"? Maybe that should be "how to submit feedback". :P
 
3:40 PM
@hichris123 it's more "what type of feedback to use in particular types of situation", actually, but that wouldn't fit in the message.
 
Well, you can shorten the links with git.io.
 
@hichris123 that work for wikis too?
 
I assume so?
 
@ArtOfCode I don't know, chat can handle a lot.
 
@Undo 500 chars.
 
3:43 PM
oh
 
But yeah, the links were long.
 
Yeah, git.io might help
 
@ArtOfCode Unless you use multiple lines.
 
@Randal'Thor yeah, but I don't like multiline :)
 
Also, I think link markdown doesn't work in multiline format?
not spam:

[visit this site](http://scifi.stackexchange.com)
 
3:44 PM
that too
 
Apparently not.
 
@hichris123 Fixed next deploy

@SmokeDetector tp- self vandalism
@SmokeDetector why
 
@Undo User removed from blacklist (6071566 on stackoverflow.com).
 
Legit blacklisting at the time
 
4:30 PM
@Undo yep
@SmokeDetector f
 
Hey @Undo
 
oy
 
We had a semi-legit long path tool post today
 
Saw it. Meh.
 
resulted from that
Madara dealt with it
Undo is not impressed D:
In other news, my kitten decided it had to fight an owl
 
4:36 PM
sensible kitty
 
uh oh
@Magisch You... still have the kitten?
 
yes
It didn't get hurt
 
Oh good. Fairly happen ending for anything involving kittens and owls
 
what is the deal with redacted meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/326027/…?
 
the owl on the other hand died
 
4:37 PM
where?
@Magisch What self-respecting owl loses a fight with a kitten?
 
not sure
 
You either have an epic kitten or a really lousy owl population
 
@Undo A tiny one?

NAO. Not An Owl.
Sparrowhawk (sometimes sparrow hawk) may refer to several species of small hawk in the genus Accipiter. "Sparrow-hawk" or sparhawk originally referred to Accipiter nisus, now called "Eurasian" or "northern" sparrowhawk to distinguish it from other species. The American kestrel (Falco sparverius), a North American falcon species, is also commonly referred to as a sparrowhawk. Hawk species include: Chestnut-flanked sparrowhawk, A. castanilius Collared sparrowhawk, A. cirrocephalus Eurasian sparrowhawk, A. nisus Chinese sparrowhawk, A. soloensis Spot-tailed sparrowhawk, A. trinotatus Japanese ...
(see name in image URL)
 
Mid sized owl
no idea
I found it in a rather eviscerated state
my kitten lost some fur
no further injuries
 
4:42 PM
@Undo No, it's a Sparrow owl, Glaucidium passerinum.
 
not even sure what breed the kitten is. I got it from a shelter and they told me it was a norwegian forest cat
but I have no idea
 
The image URL is wrong.
Not even the world's smallest owl species.
 
@Magisch Sounds like a local name for a mountain lion. Makes sense.
 
is supposedly how they look grown
 
bit like a Maine coon
 
4:47 PM
yeah
bigger more fur version of a maine coon
 
nice :) congrats
 
I named him method
the other kitten is a scottish fold mix and is named function
 
so they have the same name ;)
 
5:08 PM
method != function
Can't say I know the difference, but there is a difference
 
largely a naming convention
yes there can be methods and functions in languages that have both
but some don't have functions at all
ergo methods == functions in that language
 
1009
A: Difference between a method and a function

Andrew EdgecombeA function is a piece of code that is called by name. It can be passed data to operate on (i.e. the parameters) and can optionally return data (the return value). All data that is passed to a function is explicitly passed. A method is a piece of code that is called by a name that is associated ...

 
@Undo it depends on the language actually
 
You call an object's method, you don't call an object's function.
But it's 100% broken, of course. Everything is a func in Swift
 
some languages don't have methods, some don't have functions
so it's not a comparable thing
in that regard
so for lanuages that do not have functions
method = function
 
5:13 PM
Right. Naming is hard.
 
and vice versa ;)
yep
it's totally pedantics or semantics Undo
 
Anyway, I'm out. Cya folks :)
 
mathematically a function is also a diff thing
ok bye
 
@Yvette I speak maths, so methods and functions are very different in my language ;-)
Drat, ninja'd again.
 
@Randal'Thor exactly! :D
Nothing like programming in asp.net mvc and writing code in C# and JS :)
one has methods, the other functions and be careful if you refer to a method as a function in C# to another developer! LOL

[ SmokeDetector ] Link at end of answer: Any whiteboard animation software for Ubuntu or Linux? by bazza on askubuntu.com (@HenryWHHack)
 
I found it funny and quirky and it made my girlfriend laugh at the time
I didn't think of the subtle differences of functions and methods
 
@SmokeDetector k
 
@SmokeDetector k
 
@Magisch So 'fun' and 'meth' for short?
One cat likes to have fun, and the other one is on drugs?
 
@Magisch oh it appealed to my sense of humour, that was all, making a wry joke, which has lead to some discussion about it. I think about things like this.. Maybe my life is dull LOL
@Randal'Thor you ninjaed me that time! great minds and all that
We have Cloud, Anubis and Sid (who is Mr Sidney Cuffufuffle)
all domestic short hairs, tabbies, one is ginger though
all kittens on the street, no home
Anyway, I better go to bed
Night
Send us pics of your cats @Magisch
 
5:25 PM
Night @Yvette
 
When I can get ahold of a camera, sure
I dont have a smartphone
 
6:22 PM
I can always send my bird pictures, those are fun too

@Ferrybig Yeah, it certainly seems spammy. But why would someone just post their email, I wonder...
 
email farming can be a good reason
 
I mean, just an email couldn't be spammy.
Bah whatever
