@Ronan Makes sense, but also sounds tricky
 
Yay. Tomorrow, I get to talk to my bosses about a potential raise.
I think I have a pretty good case for it, but I'm so bad at working it.

Q: How do I ensure all dlc is downloaded for my Xbox 360 game?

CDoveI decided to give Fable 2 another playthrough after years away from it. I have all of the dlc, including the little stuff. I installed the game to a memory unit I have plugged into the console because I would rather have it on flash memory than the aging HDD and the DVD drive is now old enough...

Q: How can I change the "Frequently Used" emoji in Discord?

ThunderforgeWhen I click on Discord's emoji button, there is a section for "Frequently Used". Unfortunately, it contains a bunch of useless emoji I've never used like 💯 and 🦑. I want to change it to the emoji I actually use. For instance, I often type in thumb in the search and select the 👍, but despite ...

Q: Is Conflux really overpowered in Heroes of Might and Magic 3? Why?

Baskakov_DmitriyI've heard many times that Conflux is an overpowered town. Some of its strengths are indeed a thing to consider: Phoenixes are good 7th level creatures (when upgraded), creatures of levels 1-3 are also good. However, many other towns also have strong creatures, for example, Castle with its also...

 
Ave
hm
at the scale I imagine you're running it at, it's not the worst option I guess
you can't really use systemd timers for every single client
 
@Ave In my experience the only thing worse than using cron is using something that tries to replace it
 
Ave
I had much more success with systemd timers than with cron
 
I'm using Celery Beat, which schedules tasks with cron syntax (see previous message)
 
Ave
hm
it doesn't seem that bad
 
9:16 AM
I don't think systemd timers would be a good replacement for beat, given the amount of overhead that would be required to build the interface
 
Ave
systemd timers don't really scale.
 
Yeah, the nice thing about beat is you can run it database-backed, so you can modify your schedule really easily
But very different use cases, systemd timers are clearly not designed for user-facing process management
 
Ave
we use them for backups
 
Yeah, it's perfect for that
 
Ave
also I have the hackiest approach to backups
 
9:21 AM
Interview went well :D
 
Ave
nice!
@Ave honestly I blame some of that on b2's cli tool, which doesn't work super well when you try to automate it. It's okay with duplicity, but raw uploads are a pain.

@Nzall Thank you for telling me what I should have done, that was very helpful
 
@fredley I see you are fluent in sarcasm, just like me
 
Lol, just saw a picture of my niece with a chocolate egg she won somewhere, the egg was bigger than her torso.
 
@fredley That sounds like an edge case.
 
(Sure, it is an 8kg egg. but it helps that she is rather small)
 
11:47 AM
@Arperum I'd suggest not eating it all in one sitting
 
@Nzall That would be slightly unhealthy
 
@Arperum Which is why I suggested it
unless you're with 80 people at home
because 100 grams of chocolate seems like a decent dosage
Okay, I reset my Chrome account at work because I think it might have gotten corrupt

Q: Is there an alternate way of getting the masque of clavicus vile, apart from the quest: "Daedra's Best Friend"?

ElporteonSo, I've been playing Skyrim a lot lately, and I just initiated the quest "Daedra's Best Friend". I did the usual (went to Haemar's Cave, then Haemar's Shame, and killed a bunch of vampires.) When i got to the shrine, same thing happened as usual, I got the Rueful axe, then came back and he gave ...

 
I did not realize that was parody until after I shared it with my coworkers...

12:46 PM
@Nzall ...how?
 
@GnomeSlice clearly I believe the prejudices about the Italians
And the problem is A) Clickhole looks like a respectable site like Kotaku or Gizmodo; 2) the comparison makes sense in a certain twisted way; 3) Given the things Rowling has said in the past, I wouldn't put it past her to say this too

I sorta disagree that discord is a "game specific utility"...
"gamer oriented utility"? sure. but "specific"? not sure.
 
@Ave It's an IRC client. Mainly used by gamers and other larger communities. I don't see a reason for a school to allow the install
 
Ave
IDK if a question about editing a json value on localstorage of a chat app to change which emojis are displayed belongs on arqade.
@Nzall this is a flag, where I recommended the emoji question to be migrated to webapps.se, which IMO is much more accurate.
 
ah, okay
 
Ave
w/e, I shouldn't argue here and should write a meta, but I don't feel like it.
I had enough drama for a year (not to say that a meta discussion will cause a drama, but I just don't have the mental energy to defend a point)
 
@StrixVaria Did you manage to get passed the bunker in Farcry 5?
 
2:06 PM
I'm creating the meta right now so you don't have to
 
Ave
(also discord has its own proprietary-ish protocol, it doesn't use IRC. about the -ish, there's documents about it (see here) and open source implementations 1 2 developed by yours truly's partner)
 
Question created
Also, it's pretty much an IRC client with window dressing.
That it uses a different protocol is not really relevant
 
Ave
I mean arguably everything is IRC with extensions

Calling it "IRC with extensions" implies you could connect directly to it with an IRC client, and you can't. It's no more IRC than AIM or ICQ were.
And (like Slack) it really is a completely different protocol under the hood.
 
2:22 PM
@Fluttershy Yeah, I did a few days ago and barely started Faith's region, but I haven't had much time to play since.
I'm a little annoyed by random grunts taking more than one shot now.
With the bow/sniper.
Like what's the point of having a bow (game design wise) if it doesn't one-shot most enemies.
I played most of the game on normal but turned it down to easy during the bunker and now there are no lower difficulty options and it still feels like the enemies are just meat shields.
I don't think it's very well balanced.

Q: How can I fully install a disc game before launching it

I have cycled through the game disks letting each one install (or at least allowing the progress bar under the game icon to complete) and downloading the...

 
@ToxicFrog I use IRC in the meaning of "Internet Chat" client. That's pretty much what it is: a chat client
 
@Nzall IRC is a specific protocol and family of server networks. Calling every internet chat program "IRC" is just wrong
 
points at a passing seagull IRC
 
2:51 PM
I mean, by that standard, this is IRC, Slack is IRC, MSN, ICQ, AIM, gtalk, and Hangouts are all IRC.
 
So I may or may not be using Trello to plan OSRS stuff... lol
I think this legally qualifies as a problem but eh
listen
laws are fake
 
Okay, I used the wrong term. So what?
you got my point: Discord is nothing but a fancy chat client
 
@Nzall words mean things?
 
osrs chat is IRC
 
I'm fairly sure that most people don't actually care that it's not actually an IRC client
and you got what I meant, even if it's not the right word
 
Ave
2:57 PM
I use irc a lot recently
 
I'm surprised Ankara hasn't blocked that yet
 
Ave
I use a bouncer so
they can't quite block it
though I'd be VERY happy if turkey blocked my IP finally
 
@StrixVaria I haven't really run into this yet. I just finished Jacob's area last night, and am about to head to Faith's, though.
 
Ave
because I am forced to maintain a server on a host because of my dns and vpn services
the only reason I'm holding back on buying a home server is those, and the legality of elixire.
(that said I am probably going to buy one anyways)
 
3:25 PM
@Fluttershy I think it's enemies that are on "bliss" that are harder to take down.
But it seems like there are a lot of those in Faith's region.
I wanted to do Jacob's second to get Cheeseburger, but the game seemed to be railroading me into Faith's region so I just resigned to doing that.
I couldn't find a path to Jacob's that didn't involve 2 cars running me off the road and pushing me backwards.

@Nzall I really didn't, I thought you meant that Discord actually used IRC under the hood and that this made a difference to how school policy should treat it for some reason
 
Wait, this is the wrong room

@KevinvanderVelden @fredley look at the mess!
Not pictured: line of plastic coming in from near the oil field.
I am planning on doing something with that, I haven't yet.
 
@Arperum Such a cute little bowl of spaghetti
 
Oh yeah, I had thought about starting Factorio again
Started Minecraft again instead
I'm playing a new progression modpack
Loving it so far
About 12 hours in, just reached age 1 and unlocked the standard crafting table
 
@Unionhawk Honestly the best part of this is the 'P.h.D'
 
@fredley Hey, it's a start. My current goal is to figure out how to do robots, but first to build them, which needs more automation, but I don't want to pipe lubricant down here from the oilfield.
 
@SaintWacko This sounds hellish
@Arperum You don't need that much lube

3:49 PM
who has two thumbs and accidentally left their steam downloads paused when they went to bed last night? this guy!
 
And piping is cheap and unobtrusive, if you go underground
 
@fredley It's kind of amazing. It's refreshing to not just be able to jump straight to endgame stuff
I actually have to remember how to do things in a low-tech way
 
@fredley I guess I'll do that then.
@SaintWacko What pack?
 
@Arperum Sevtech: Ages
Also, and here's the best part
It doesn't include Draconic Evolution!
Nothing against the mod, but the stuff it adds is so much better than everything else that it just gets boring
Also, I don't like having creative flight
My favorite high-tech movement armor was still the Quantum Suit. Increased movement speed and jump height meant that instead of flying places I'd just leap from treetop to treetop

Q: Do some pokemon players not see all pokestops?

VolleyJoshMy son and I play Pokemon Go together. I use a google account and he has a PTC account, as he is under 13. We each have our own Android device. On his game, he does not see the Starbucks stops. Is this expected? Have you encountered this with other sponsored stops (like Sprint stores?) Is there ...

 
3:54 PM
The only thing I don't like about this modpack is that progression from age 0 is gated behind some stuff in the Darklands, which can be hard to find
It requires a lot of travel to find a Darklands biome, which is not normally something you're doing this early in the game
 
Just keep spwaning maps until you spawn in a darklands biome?
 
@fredley Might work, except that they are at the very least more common in cold biomes, and maybe only found there, and you spawn in a warm area
Also, you really do not want to be in the darklands at night unless you're good and ready for it
Also also, by the time I knew I needed a darklands biome and that they were hard to find, I was already a few hours in :P
 
@SaintWacko rekt
 
@fredley I ended up travelling a couple thousand blocks by raft and found one on the other side of the sea
 
@SaintWacko Good that they give you a raft
 
4:06 PM
@fredley Yeah, just took me a bit to make one because it takes string

Q: What’s the name of this old arcade game?

Biff IamIt’s an arcade games of the late 70s/early 80s. You control a kind of spaceship or cannon eating the dots in a maze in the style of Pac Man. This ship is pursued by one or two torpedoes. I dont really recall if it was a color game or black and white. What is the name of this game?

 
@StrixVaria I think I just wingsuited my way into Jacob's region, tbh. I do know what you mean about the bliss enemies. Those guys take like 4 headshots. It's rough.
 
4:23 PM
I still don't have the wingsuit. I should probably fix that.
If it's anything like the parachute though then using it has a 50% chance to fail and you just die.
Luckily the doggie is usually there to revive you right away.
 
@StrixVaria I'd put it at roughly 75%. But yeah, I got the air drop fast travel option, so it gives me plenty of flight time.
Cheeseburger is pretty great, though. I have him and Boomer following me around.

@GnomeSlice It's been out about a month, and it's on 1.12.2, so it makes use of the advancement system
My current base consists of a tepee, a handful of chests, a stump I can lay out recipes on and then bang on them with a rock to craft, a couple kilns and a stone grill over a firepit in the ground, and a stone hand grinder
