1:00 PM
@fredley The world is honestly a horrifying place righ tnow, and it's just getting worse.
 
I had to spend many sleepless weeks doing nothing but playing games at university to land in my current job! I guess minorities don't know what sacrifice is lol!
(the joke is that I did also sleep)
 
@badp SLow down there cowboy!
 
@Wipqozn YOU CAN'T DECREASE MY VELOCITY I'M SHOOTING FOR THE STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARS
 
do you mean to imply that not everyone is playing on an equal playing field, and that luck also plays a role in success?!?!?
THAT'S CRAZY TALK
 
I OVERSHOT THE STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARS
 
1:01 PM
RACISM IS DEAD @BADP
IT'S DEAAAAAAAAAAAAD
POOR PEOPLE JUST NEED TO WORK HARDER
 
YES
 
AND JUST GET MORE MONEY
 
OF COURSE, IF YOU ARE POOR IT'S YOUR GODDAMN FAULT
WHY ARE YOU SO TERRIBLE
 
WHY CAN'T POOR PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT HAVING MORE MONEY WOULD SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS
 
TFW YOU DON'T EVEN MAKE $3,000 A MONTH
 
1:03 PM
@badp GROSS
 
THOSE BETA MALES THINK THEY KNOW SHIT
 
GOSH DOWN BETA MALES
CLEARLY THEY NEED MORE RED PILLS
 
@Wipqozn no it's not and i can prove it. the entire world is racists to purple people. when someone start to go purple the first thing everyone does is call a doctor to correct them
 
@Memor-X Oh shit
Well @Memor-X just made me look like a fool!
 
@Wipqozn YOU KNOW WHAT'S THE LATEST, WOMEN THINK THEY SHOULD MARRY SOMEONE THEY LOVE??
 
1:04 PM
@badp WHOA NELLY
 
AND THEN THERE ARE ALL THOSE DASHING 20-SOMETHINGS WHO CANNOT GET A LADY
 
THAT'S CRAZY
but yeah, I gotta get back to work, but point is, people are dumb.
 
(/r/incibels or whatever is a really really sad place)
(OR MAYBE I JUST NEED TO GET LAID OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO)
 
@badp what about those 30 year old Wizards?
 
@Memor-X ARE THEY EVEN PEOPLE
OR ARE THEY GOLEMS
NONE KNOWS
 
1:07 PM
@badp yes, because i'm 3 years off from being one!
at least last time i checked i was people
 
HOW CUTE, NOW GOLEMS WANT TO HAVE THEIR PERSONHOOD RECOGNISED
WHAT'S NEXT WILL I HAVE TO HIRE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND GIVE IT DAYS OFF AND SICK LEAVE
I am a really brilliant mood, a terrific mood, the best mood
2016: DRESS AGGRESS FOR SUCCESS
 
@badp yes because [insert penis joke]
sorry, the joke program just went on maternity leave
 
@Arperum it happened last night
 
@KevinvanderVelden I won't be playing civ tonight. Other more important stuff came up.
@Nzall night/morning, same thing.
 
@Wipqozn My feelings exactly
And there's literally nowhere to escape to
 
1:16 PM
@Arperum 8 PM yesterday evening can hardly be called this morning

@Memor-X This one fits that bill too.

@Memor-X I was aiming at your garfield thing.
 
@Arperum oh thank goodness it was just a miss-fire and you weren't just taking a while to upload an image
 
@badp If I did not have more important things to do tonight I would debate driving to wherever you are and screaming at you.
 
1:28 PM
@Sterno what's that you wanted some free FF emojis?
 
@badp what FF?
 
@Arperum should I buy one of those voice distortion things for the audio zalgo experience?
 
@Memor-X There is a filesize limit. my internet is not that bad that 2mb would take forever.
@badp insert random black metal screaming here
 
mumbles something about death metal being a horribly broad definition
 
1:34 PM
@fredley Nope, because the whole world is going into madness. The climate problems makes it worse. You always hear "wars fought over water", and if the world is already fucked by us being idiots then jesus.
It's frusrating to know all this stuff is happening but not being able to anything about it.

Only few minutes in, but I like it.
I like church music.

Q: Does EVERY brand new PlayStation TV ship with 3.60 firmware or lower?

alex2003superI know, the reason I'm asking this seems pretty obvious, but please ignore it. Let's say I'd like to know if every brand new (not used) PlayStation TV that is shipped by a reliable reseller (one that does not open the box) delivers with a firmware that is lower than version 3.60. I am in Europe...

 
@Arperum death to death metal?
 
“Jeremy Hunt proposes ban on sexting for under-18s” Ah, so Hunt understands tech as little as the rest of the govt. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/nov/29/jeremy-hunt-proposes-ban-on-sexting-for-under-18s
As in a technical ban. Not making it illegal, but forcing social media companies to find a technological solution
 
@badp Nah. It's just that I had a mental reaction like "This is not what I associate with death metal, then made the click "oh, right, this is actually death metal, more specifically it's "technical death metal" (If I'm not mistaken, it might not actually be death metal and just fall under grindcore or some other extreme genre, don't know my way all that well in those) and most death metal I listen to is "Melodic death metal", which sounds completely different
 
2:15 PM
That's the 3rd siren ambulance in the past 30 minutes. Something seems to have happened nearby
 
> Citizens of /r/Canada awoke today to find their Danish nemeses attempting to annex the google image search results of Hans Island by up-voting a picture of Hans island on /r/FreeHans, the latest battle in what has been dubbed "The Google War". While initially caught off-guard /r/Canada has responded with a devastating counter attack. More news as the situation develops.
 
@Nzall We have a word in Britain for people like Jeremy Hunt.
 
I thought "a jeremy hunt" was the word for people like Jeremy Hunt
 
> He said a cumbersome user interface was causing the time taken to update a record to jump from around one minute to as much as 30 minutes per entry.
Who even dares release such a piece of shitsoftware?
@fredley Cabbage?
 
2:23 PM
@Arperum Government contracts on tight timelines.
 
> The software, created by Texas-based Tyler Technologies
COME ON
 
@JasonBerkan How do you even make a piece of software that literally takes 30 minutes to save one entry?
@Yuuki So we have to blame you for it?
 
Never have I had so much trouble trying to print just a section of a word doc.
I should be able to say "print section 3.3.2.1" and have it print, but that isn't working for some reason.
So I say "print these pages of section 3", but that doesn't work.
So I have to say "print pages x-y", but invariably, those are the wrong pages, because of course they are.
 
@fredley Does it involve replacing the first letter of his last name?
 
@fredley I like the part where they blame other legacy software as if their software isn't literally impacting people's lives
"It's someone else's fault we have literally no safeguards against this"
 
2:29 PM
@MBraedley I think we can all agree software and by extension people to make it is literally the worst.

@Sterno Subsidized naps
 
2:42 PM
We just need to hurry up with the whole "robots taking our jobs" thing, so we can just sleep all the time.
 
@Arperum but clearly technical death metal is the best kind of correct
 
@TimStone It's not a revenue loss if we make the government pay for it!
 
\o/
 
I don't understand why developers keep thinking, "You know what my RPG needs? A fishing mini-game!"
 
@Sterno I dunno, I enjoyed it in old Zeldas
 
2:48 PM
> But do note: In most action games, you'd tap the block button (Square on PS4) just before an enemy strike lands to dodge or parry. In Final Fantasy XV, you have to hold the button down for this stuff to work.
Well, that explains what I'm doing wrong
Apparently there's an entire FF15 movie I'm supposed to watch to understand the story. YAY?

Q: Why are Septims called gold in your inventory?

HorusOk, I already asked why coins are called Septims, but why does it just say gold when you look at it or pick it up, and in your inventory?

 
You know what I really miss? @Frank's "Good morning".
 
To be fair mornings are categorically no longer good
 
@badp Yes/No/Maybe.
 
3:03 PM
@Yuuki I miss clearing the stars on those messages, good times
(Just joking, the person who cleared the stars was obviously badp)
 
@fredley Let's just not start this war today.
 
The wounds haven't even healed
 
MOD ABUSE
 
Aye lmao
 
Remember when certain users went off in a fit of starring everything rage every time that happened?
 
3:05 PM
Everyone knows @Frank's "Good morning, Bridge" was lame. @fbueckert's "Good morning, Bridge" was where it was at.
 
@Unionhawk Oh yes. Then they got made a mod.
 
@fredley No. I would be up for some drama, but I am having a day with just bad stuff. And no I'm not going to talk about it.
 
Rage starring things is a path to modhood.
 
Dug up World of Goo this morning, still pretty good.

Q: What happens if a Ditto in a Gym (as the first Pokémon of said Gym) faces a Ditto which a Trainer sends out first?

AuroI would assume that the two Ditto won't transform, and thus can only use Struggle. But what I also want to know is what would happen if you switched to another Pokémon, then back to Ditto, while facing the same Ditto? Also, does Struggle do recoil damage like in the normal games?

 
3:12 PM
@iKlsR That was the first Steam game I got
The start of the slippery slope
The beginning of the end
 
Their second game was good too, found them both. Also found Machinarium, today gonna be a good day.
 
@Memor-X The beginning linear "tutorial" dragged on for too long and having bosses deal area-of-effect damage while you have no control over party member placement is among the most WTF game design choices I've come across.
 
@Yuuki Good morning
 
@Frank :D
Good morning to you too.
How long is the new Humble Bundle on for?
I forgot to pick it up last night.
 
@Sterno Kingsglaive. Prequel. Its got the trademark cutscene flair, but is actually pretty short on story, from what I understand.

Q: Is there any way to increase the text size?

BlueRaja - Danny PflughoeftUsing a 55" TV, the size of most UI text is less than 1cm tall. This is very hard to read sitting 6-7 feet away. I looked through the options, but I didn't find any obvious way to increase the size of the HUD or text. Is there any way to do this?

0
Q: How do I view enemy weaknesses in Active Mode?

BlueRaja - Danny PflughoeftWhen using "wait-mode combat", you get to see each enemies weaknesses when the action pauses. However the action never pauses when using "active-mode combat". Is there any way to see an enemy's weakness in that case?

1
Q: Is there any point in upgrading the 'Wait mode' tree when using Active Mode?

BlueRaja - Danny PflughoeftFFXV has two types of combat, toggleable in the options: Wait mode, which pauses combat when you're not moving Active mode, which never pauses combat There is an entire skill-tree labeled "wait mode". Is there any point in upgrading this tree if you're playing in Active Mode?

 
@Frank I'm guessing it ties into the stuff that happens at the end of chapter 1
Since they did a remarkable job not explaining any of that
Or what's important about "the ring" or "the crystal" or how they're connected, if they even are

Q: Is there a trick to dodging?

BlueRaja - Danny PflughoeftIn the tutorial, they said "hold L1 to dodge attacks" (I am using control-layout B). They make it sound like you're basically invincible while holding the button.

Q: How do I warp to a safe-spot in wait mode?

BlueRaja - Danny PflughoeftDuring many battles, there are safe spots you can warp to (windows, rocks, etc) to regain HP and mana. In Active Mode, you warp to these by rotating the camera to look at them and hitting ◯ However, in Wait Mode that doesn't work. When I look at a safe-spot and hit ◯, it still warps me to the ...

@fredley WTF
Where is that meteor when you need it?
@today: stop this bullshit.
 
@2016 pls
 
God Emperor Trump will decide what we need.
 
@fredley Trump being democratically elected did downgrade my opinion of democracy quite a bit. It's still the least bad system of government, though
 
"Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…"
 
3:45 PM
@JasonBerkan Churchill said that
 
@JasonBerkan Well, we're about ripe for rule by artificial intelligence.
If anything, Supreme AI Overlord Tay wouldn't be much different from President Trump.
 
@Nzall churchill quoted someone saying that
 
@KevinvanderVelden Churchill quoted someone quoting someone else saying that.
 
@Yuuki @JasonBerkan quoting Churchill quoting someone else quoting someone else saying that.
 
3:50 PM
@KevinvanderVelden "it has been said" is one of those things that people say to lend gravitas to their words. It isn't necessarily proof that they're quoting someone else.
 
Ugh, my phone network seems to be slow again
 
That graph is by age group. Of course kids are going to think democracy is bad.
 
@JasonBerkan Well, the idea is that a larger percentage of kids in 2011 think democracy is bad than compared to the percentage of kids in 1995.
 
Oh. I didn't realize there were two graphs. At my age, my eyesight isn't very good.
 
@JasonBerkan I bet you think democracy is great too.
 
3:53 PM
@Yuuki It's worked for me till now.
 
I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.
 
In all honesty, I have a ton of respect for the founding members of both our countries and all the work they did to create political systems that would withstand time and people. They may not work perfectly, but they sure aren't bad. We live in some pretty damn good countries.
 
@JasonBerkan on the other hand, slavery
 
I guess @arda would love some democracy right now.
 
@TimStone nooo
 
4:04 PM
@JasonBerkan I have respect for what they achieved as well, I just wish we weren't so reluctant to change some of the systems that are clearly outdated these days. The vote tally system being a chief example.
Talley? Tally?
 
Color Colour?
Talleuy?
 
Coulour?
 
I get to participate in a dialogue assignment thing where 2 people are talking about electoral college and the having of it
 
@Unionhawk Can't wait for that to devolve into Clinton vs. Trump.
 
The in favour bit is quite simple: They can stop trump, that is actually their job
 
4:06 PM
@Yuuki I hope not
 
Colour
 
@KevinvanderVelden The against is quite simple: 1) it doesn't make any god damn sense anymore 2) the popular vote would have elected clinton
 
embrace the 'u'
 
@KevinvanderVelden Be that as it may, we're looking at further public unrest if the Electoral College rejects Trump.
 
4:07 PM
I will accept that pre-radio etc, it may have made sense
But
 
I like my proportional representation, 1 voting district system
 
Now you can literally go on the internet and google "what does x stand for" and google will tell you
 
@Unionhawk "what does alt-right stand for"
 
@Yuuki To which the euphemistic answer is "a european ethno-state" to which the translated answer is "white nationalism"
Done
Boom
BOOM
 
Shorter answer: Nazis
 
4:09 PM
I keep seeing 20.1k in chat and I keep hoping that I magically got 120 rep on gaming
But no it's just random rep from I think a51
And maybe lifehacks
 
@fredley Well that's completely terrible.
 
@KevinvanderVelden I want multi-representative districts.
 
There's very little you can't improve, this is fine =p
 
Single representative districts are far weaker to gerrymandering and lend themselves naturally to FPTP.
 
@PrivatePansy The most bloody battle fought by Canadians in years
 
4:12 PM
@Yuuki gerrymandering is really hard with 1 voting district
i.e. the entire country
 
I think they should just make me Supreme Ruler of everything
 
@KevinvanderVelden The problem is that the US is big enough that people place a heavy importance on local elections.
@Wipqozn That's what they're naming Hans Island.
 
@Yuuki well tell them to stop
 
@KevinvanderVelden It's not so easy when the cultural differences between different states and regions in US are dramatically higher than what you'd encounter in most European nations.
 
4:14 PM
Step 1: Friday will be declared the anthem of the world
Step 2: @Unionhawk will be put in charge of nap time
Step 3: Your mom jokes for all
 
I don't see the problem, yes it's bigger. So?
 
@Wipqozn Can you imagine an arena standing and singing Friday before a hockey game!?!?
 
@JasonBerkan It would be glorious.
 
@KevinvanderVelden Imagine your only representative is largely determined by the population of the UK.
Remember that the population of the UK voted to Brexit.
 
4:16 PM
@Yuuki well that's why you don't have 1 representative
 
People disgreeing is all the more reason to just name me Supreme Emperor
 
cc @fredley
 
I'd even arrange for @Sterno to get few canes
 
such anime
 
@PrivatePansy ... Isn't that his mom?
 
4:19 PM
@Yuuki yes
You've got your mom's lips
 
@PrivatePansy Can't tell whether he's pointing to lips or a double chin.
 
@Yuuki He's pointing to your mom!
OH WHAAAT
 
Ancient Pokemon question! Why on this page does it show Horn Attack at Level 1 and Level 8?
 
cc @GnomeSlice on that sick burn
 
4:23 PM
@JasonBerkan Datamining?
 
@JasonBerkan huh, weird.
 
snapchat is a terribly buggy app
 
Could just be a bug
 
I can't remember if you can encounter Nidorino pre-16.
 
@JasonBerkan I thought it was for caught Pokemon, but that doesn't make sense either because there are only three moves before level 8
 
4:24 PM
I know Nidoran(M) evolves at 16, but you could encounter evolved Pokemon before their supposed evolution levels in R/B.
 
@Yuuki I thought that was possible in every version
 
Pidgeotto at 9 in the Viridian Forest being a big example.
@PrivatePansy Maybe?
I don't remember doing that in X/Y.
 
That's not a good example - my problem is Nidoking. Shows Poison Sting at Level 1 and Level 14 (or N/A in Yellow), but he can only be evolved starting at level 16 and therefore will only have Poison Sting if you level up Nidorino to 19 first.
Too confusing.
The only actual move that Nidoking will learn is Thrash. Everything else comes from before you evolve him. That grid is hard to read.
 
Stone-evolved Pokemon always had weird moveset lists.
 
4:37 PM
FPGA instances now available on AWS
Interesting
 
On board of VY 8436
@fredley for that sweet sweet acceleration #optimized
how does a FPGA even do tcp-ip
(A: poorly)
 
@badp With the family for the holidays?
 
Okay, so who here plays Dwarf Fortress?
 
4:44 PM
Anyway, TIL you should save before you use a Moon Stone.
 
@GnomeSlice Considering I've never heard of this up until now, I don't think he's made Canada a "global farce".
 
@KevinvanderVelden just this weekend; I'll also be taking Xmas unless things go wrong
(I don't have plans for new year's eve)
 
Huh, I guess flights are pretty cheap if you don't have to worry about visa's or a place for staying
 
Cost me some €85 or so plus two days off
 
@Yuuki the point is, why is he praising him
 
4:48 PM
@Yuuki Like anybody could "make" Canada a global farce
 
Grandparents are staying at my parents', so I'll have a chance to see them, too
 
@GnomeSlice Because his family and castro had good relations
 
@GnomeSlice Because he did some good things and some (very) bad things, and he's respecting a widely-loved (by his own people) leader who recently died?
He's not saying he's an ideal leader, just paying his respects to the dead.
pls to not become radicalised, @GnomeSlice
4
 
@GnomeSlice why wouldn't you? Everyone said they were "happy" about the Trump presidency
 
@KevinvanderVelden That's true I guess. Pierre loved him too
 
4:50 PM
Not gloating about someone's death is just a polite thing to do
 
Pfft
 
@SaintWacko I got past the main menu once. I think.
 
When has Canada ever been polite?
 
@SaintWacko o/
 
4:50 PM
@John ditto
 
@KevinvanderVelden Okay
So I have a fortress with a bridge across a moat that leads into a cliff face where the fortress itself is
 
Though my strategy for dealing with uglies is by building deathtraps and I don't use the military
 
Yeah, I generally do that, too
I'll tell you about my best one here in a minute :D
Anyway, this one I don't have any of that setup yet, all I can do is seal the entrance
 
I feel like I would enjoy Dwarf Fortress much more if I could play it from a Minecraft-style perspective
 
@GnomeSlice I'm very concerned about the sources you've been reading
 
4:52 PM
I just can't get into ascii art
 
So an elven invasion arrived (no I don't know why the elves are invading), and manage to shoot one of my dorfs as he's running back across the bridge
He falls unconscious on the bridge
 
I as a person am concerned for you as a person, this is not a moderator thing
 
I don't even know the source of that video, just googled "trudeau castro"
Relax
 
I can't leave it open, I have to close it
 
@GnomeSlice y tho
 
4:53 PM
But you know what happens to anyone on a bridge when you close it, right?
 
@GnomeSlice That doesn't make me relaxed.
 
Yeah and that Obama guy
 
Because I think it's a dumb thing for him to have done
 
He said polite things about Castro
 
@SaintWacko @badp does
 
4:53 PM
He said polite things about Castro. WHAT AN ASSHOLE
 
Why didn't I think of this before
 
@fredley Sigh...
 
of course a Dwarf Fortress mod for Minecraft exists
 
@SaintWacko Well, the mods panic for about an hour until @badp figures out to unfreeze the room.
 
I'm going to get flagged down for that in 3 hours
 
4:54 PM
* @MadScientist
 
@Yuuki That was hilarious
 
@Unionhawk yw
 
You just ruined some random flagger's day
I hope you're happy
Because I would be
 
very
@SaintWacko hey I was solving the problem
 
4:55 PM
Anyway, when you close a drawbridge, any creature standing on it gets flung into the air
 
just I was solving it different
 
@SaintWacko wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
 
@KevinvanderVelden Exactly :D
 
why is thinking different only okay when Apple does it??
 
@fredley This has been a HUGE story in Canada.
 
4:55 PM
So I write him off as dead
 
Guess I didn't realize the family history was quite that sincere but still i mean
 
Not only is he unconscious, he's just been flung into the air
So I seal the fortress, everything is good, except for the loss of one dorf
 
This guy singlehandedly fights off the invading army, doesn't he
 
Point is, I think despite things and stuff, it's still wise to be at least polite about the death of the ruler of a country just 90 miles from mainland USA
 
@JasonBerkan Hey, I'd be like 'wow, your premiere does dumb things', if the things they were doing even registered at all on the scale of dumb things that the UK/US(elect) premiers are doing

Especially for President Obama, who just recently worked to lift the embargo
 
I go up a few levels to designate more bedrooms, and suddenly notice that there's someone running around on the cliff just outside
It's that dorf
 
There's a better way than just going "Fidel Castro is dead!" with an implied "fuck that guy am I right?"
 
He got flung straight up the cliff face and landed on a little ledge, softly enough that it didn't hurt him at all
 
I feel like this dorf deserves a movie or something
 
@fredley I mean those are universal farces tbf
 
4:58 PM
I wish I could remember which one it was
 
but you'll have to have him singlehandedly defeating the army too
because hollywood
 
@fredley Well, my premier is the best premier, but I imagine @GnomeSlice brought it up because that's what is being talked about here, without realizing that it is small potatoes.
 
@SaintWacko fall damage is... weird
 
lol someone ordered a pizza to the engineering building
 
@Unionhawk silly engineers
Ordering pizza, what a joke.

@fredley But being a radical makes it so much easier! You don't need to think. Everything is black and white.
Also @SaintWacko is making me want to try playing Dwarf Fortress again
 
@Yuuki update: it was Honda
 
@Unionhawk Is this what they call regulatory capture?
 
This is what they call "recruiting"
 
@Unionhawk if they really wanted to recruit, they would bring those awesome robots to campus
 
And forcefully take the students?

@KevinvanderVelden YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS TO COMPLY
 
I, for one, welcome our new Honda overlords.

ugh so apparently snapchat uses safetynet api (same one pokemon go uses) to block out root and rom users.
 
Always upsetting when a book at my works booksale catches me attention, but it's like, book 5 of a series
Such great deals though. For example they had The Great Ordeal, which is normally $20, but they sell all hardovers for $3.
In fact that's like, book 6 in series
 
(and as I have root, twrp and xposed, I can't login, even with a factory reset. I will probably need to flash android all over again if I want to use snap, ugh. too much hassle for a single app)
 
Also that moment when you realize you have one of the most first world problems of first world problems

Q: Could I get some criticism on my posts?

user143228Backstory: I'm active a lot lastly, and I must say I try to post as high-quality posts, especially answers, as I can.

Q: Sawed-off versus Combat Shotgun - should I switch?

Talon TrooperPlaying through fallout 4 on survival and just got access to combat shotguns; they do more damage than the double barreled shotgun, but they lack the sawn-off upgrade to increase critical damage, and with Gun Nut currently capped at 2 for several levels, I only have access to the Calibrated recei...
