in This Is Fine, 12 secs ago, by fredley
Horrific things happening in 2017 belong in here
 
Seriously @fredley?
This is getting ridiculous
 
ye
 
2:28 PM
@fredley Oi. What @SaintWacko said.
And of course, @fredley himself pins it.
 
Man, @fredley is mad with power
He's not even a real mod
 
sigh
 
moves @fredley to Android Enthusiasts

can we just avoid moving messages if at all possible
they just make people upset
 
I support This if Fine being used when people are getting into it about politics or something in the news
 
2:30 PM
and shift the discussion from whatever undesirable topic to the more undesirable topic of where undesirable topics belong where
 
But just throwing messages in there completely undermines the purpose of it
 
I overstepped the line between gentle trolling and annoying trolling, sorry
 
and now we are having an even more undesirable discussion about where undesirable discussion about undesirable discussion about undesirable topics should be
 
@fredley Thank you
 
@fredley mod abuse is hard. It's hard, and no one understands.
 
2:32 PM
Really, we should be having an undesirable discussion about @badp
 
 
@badp plsp
 
@SaintWacko if it's a discussion about @badp it's by definition undesirable
 
Well, and really @fredley you were just the focus for my annoyance. I haven't been thrilled with the way it feels like we're not even allowed to mention news in this room anymore. I can understand using This is Fine for deeper discussions of news, but it would be nice to still allow a "Hey, this is happening" in here
 
but then how will we have false equivalences about this is fine being just as bad as russian propaganda
 
2:35 PM
I'm pro TIF, before TIF we bitched T**** and B**** in here constantly and it was getting tiring. Now instead we can bitch about TIF.
 
I can get behind bitching about TIF
Who's B****?
 
Badp*
 
One extra asterisk though.
 
<Gnomeslice>Hue</Gnomeslice>
 
I feel like we should still allow casual discussion of news on the Bridge, but move the conversation to TIF once we reach a certain objective definition, like how many posts have been made about it
 
2:37 PM
I agree
 
@Unionhawk Nah, just a certain something that @fredley is to blame for.
 
Kinda like the way comments on a question are shifted to chat after a certain point
 
@Nzall pls
 
yeah, like @SaintWacko is saying
 
Really, anyone should just be able to say "Hey, can you guys take that to TIF?"
 
2:37 PM
And "move the conversation to TIF" should be mean "okay, let's continue this in TIF" not "→ 27 messages moved to This Is Fine".

Right
Unless people aren't listening and are still going off on each other in here about stuff
Then feel free to move it
It's a revolution!
The people will rise up against the unjust rule of the mods!
 
pls
 
aka, This is not fine
 
Down with @badp!
 
Down with @SaintWacko!
 
2:39 PM
Waiting for the modabuse....
 
Am I doing this right?
 
Wait what
 
Down with prices on avocado toast!
 
Down with puns!
 
THE FILTHY PLEBS ARE TALKING AT OUR HEAVENLY LEISURE, AND AT OUR HEAVENLY LEISURE SHALL THEY BE SILENCED, TO ALLOW THE JUST AND PROPER USE OF THIS SACRED MEDIUM OF COMMUNCATIONS
 
2:40 PM
Side note, how suspicious should I be about a 2015 Chevy Volt for about $16k?
 
@fredley inb4 this whole conversation is moved to a room "This is not fine"
 
I have two ships in Endless Sky!
 
@fredley rip
 
RIP
 
2:40 PM
RIP @BenBrocka
RIP @Mana
 
 
-> 6 mods moved to This Is Fine
 
RIP @RavenDreamer
 
RIP @agent86
 
RIP @Oak
 
2:41 PM
you had a typo there
 
huh
 
you're welcome
 
:|
 
@Frank Shush, you're interrupting our revolution
 
2:41 PM
Apparently chat duplicate message detection doesn't consider mod abuse
 
@SaintWacko That was sorta the idea. :P
 
@Frank Haha
 
1 min ago, by Yuuki
Side note, how suspicious should I be about a 2015 Chevy Volt for about $16k?
 
Has it actually improved?
 
@Yuuki ?
 
2:42 PM
@badp He's time travelling
 
@SaintWacko Not Star Sector. Endless Sky. A free space trading game on Steam
 
@Frank Oh, I was thinking No Man's Sky
 
@SaintWacko is that why Sundays are on the wrong end of the week
 
@badp The end of the weekend should be at the end of the week, I don't know how people keep messing that up
 
@SaintWacko Haven't played that at all.
 
2:43 PM
Weeks start on Monday, anything else is objectively wrong
 
@Yuuki That's probably within the range of the KBB value
So, not very, but always good to do due diligence
 
@Frank Yeah, I just saw Endless Sky and connected the name to the wrong game. I haven't played it either
 
I'm trying to decide between it and a 2016 Prius Touring and the price point on the Volt is very attractive.
Along with the pure electric drive (although it's only ~40 mile range).
 
@Yuuki TrueCar is giving me about that for 2014 models so it's probably fine
 
@Yuuki I heard it talking behind your back. It's plotting against you
 
2:48 PM
@Yuuki 40 miles is not that much. If you have another emergency evacuation, you're not going to get far on that
 
@Nzall After 40 miles, it switches to gasoline with a range of ~250 miles, IIRC.
 
Volt is like electric motor with gasoline generator or something like that right
 
Yeah, but that still relies on gasoline. if you got a mass evac, gas stations will be mostly empty
 
Not for a circle of 72 kilometers though
 
you don't need to look at a 40 miles circle, but at a 40 miles road. If the entire state is evacuating like for Irma, you're not making it too far
 
2:49 PM
I fueled up before Harvey perfectly fine so I imagine I can fuel before future hurricanes as well.
Unfortunately, it didn't help because my car got totaled.
 
:C
 
Okay, so gasoline range is 350+ miles.
 
:(
 
runs DEV branch
> Incompatible client detected
UHHHHHHHHHHH
HELLO
 
@Nzall If you're already empty before a mass evacuation is announced, you have other problems.
Namely, your horrible fuel management.
I don't know why people let their tanks go to near-empty.
 
2:52 PM
to maximize fuel rewards
 
Wtf are fuel rewards
 
@KevinvanderVelden We gamified refueling because we're dangerously reckless human beings
 
The latest I wait to refuel is at 25% capacity.
 
@KevinvanderVelden Some gas stations and grocery stores that also have gas have a rewards program so you earn discounts for shopping in the store
 
2:54 PM
You're all weird
 
No joke I knew people who literally got 2 cars empty so they could get the maximum 25 gallon x $1 discount
 
> In addition to these changes, enterprise customers will also have access to a new setting that limits diagnostic data to the minimum required for Windows Analytics, a service that allows admins to decrease IT costs by gaining insights – through Windows Diagnostics – into the computers running Windows 10 in their organizations.
I mean, also an option for zero?
 
@fredley Zero likely won't ever happen, but Analytics-only is the next best thing
 
Hmm, is that over HTTP or a custom protocol, I could just sinkhole it
I'm still on win8 because of these bullshit privacy invasions
 
@Unionhawk That's a pretty good deal. I get 3/4% cashback on gas with two of my credit cards though so I don't think I'd bother (also my tank is not that big)
 
2:59 PM
@TimStone Yeah except you have to consider that it is literally insane to fill up 2 cars on one transaction for any reason at all
 
I mean also true
 
Is 30k less mileage worth a ~$2k price increase?
 
You get less and pay more? Not usually =p
 
As in, the car has less mileage on it (it's a used car) and thus is more "new".
 
Aaaaah
I don't know, 30k out of what?
(what I thought you meant makes no sense now that I think about it)
 
3:12 PM
Well, the more expensive one has 8k mileage while the less expensive one has 39k mileage.
 
What the hell model year is a car with 8k miles
 
8k is basically nothing
But then, 39k is also basically nothing on a good car
 
I'm getting some metrics from online and with $0.25-$0.50/mile depreciation post-3k mileage, 30k mileage is well worth an increase of $2k.
 
Yeah, 39k is a little more than "just off a 3 year 36k mile lease"
 
(I mean, my car has 195k kilometerage)
 
3:13 PM
@Unionhawk This is a 2015 model year car.
@Unionhawk Also a 2015 model year car.
 
@Yuuki what
 
(to be fair, my car was slightly more than the difference between your choices)
 
On the one hand, I'm concerned about flood damage scamming. On the other hand, this is Carmax and I know what to look for as far as flood damage goes.
 
oooh
the new R&M is nice
 
It's still not up on google play :(
 
3:19 PM
cc @GodEmperorDune @Wipqozn @Ash
 
This is going to be an awful @Yuuki thing isn't it?
Not super awful, still a @Yuuki thing
 
@KevinvanderVelden Of course it's not super awful, it's Super Soaker.
 
That was awful @Yuuki, you should be ashamed of yourself
 
@Yuuki pls
 
agh
 
3:37 PM
@Yuuki You could always take it into a mechanic and have them take a look at it
 
@SaintWacko Before paying for the car?
 
@Yuuki added to my Important folder, thanks
under "YOU ONLY HAD TO STOP"
 
@Yuuki You can make that a condition of the sale
"Hey, I'm interested in your car, but I'd like to have my mechanic take a look at it. Can you meet me at [mechanic]?"
 
@SaintWacko Apparently, Carmax has a 7 day return policy.
So there's that.
 
(warning: jim sterling, expect NSFW stuff)
 
@Avery Oh boy, a Sterling video with a game I play as the thumbnail.
 
also lol
the opening is great
 
Should probably avoid this even more than the Sterling videos I already avoid.
 
3:56 PM
@Avery Does LoL no longer sell champs?
 
@DanmakuGrazer idk
I find it kinda bad
 
Well, to call LoL a good example of F2P monetization is a bit silly if that hasn't changed
 
Read instruction manual thoroughly before assembling your new cat https://t.co/GG5VnpkOsq
 
I don't like his example about that one shooter
