There was talk about servers earlier, any particular reason not to just use something like virtualbox with ubuntu server which is free and you can destroy and rebuild as often as you like.
And completely free

@lantech19446 What problem are you having with VB? Both AWS and Azure have free tiers where you can build and host applications on Windows or Linux at no cost
Azure's App Service free tier has a bunch of capabilities: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/?WT.mc_id=try_websitestop-_unc_-_web

@rmaylie9560 I am not opposed to making a neural network, but I'm going to go out a limb here and ssay that it might be a little excessive for tic tac toe

Someone should make a thing that tracks emoji usage and awards points for using a rarely used one in the correct context

@rmaylie9560
Jun 16 2016 17:16
Make a bot!
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 17:17
could also make that for languages/vocabulary, might encourage better vocab among people
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
Jun 16 2016 17:17
how would you qualify the context being correctly used though?

Rhino
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 17:18
a simple approach is to add buttons for people to upvote/downvote whenever an emoji is used,
but this is where some neural nets, or machine learning might come in handy
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
Jun 16 2016 17:19
ahhh that would be cool. Like a hive learning kinda thing?
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 17:20
yea
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
Jun 16 2016 17:23
Hmm... Might be cool.
i don't know if the data you'd get in would define proper usage though. It may give you a spectrum of uses for it though. It will misinterpret sarcasm uses I'm sure.
And I used the word though waaaay to many times there
and commas and things of the like.
and grammar
and and😐
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 17:30
hmm I'm sure there's a way around it

There are quite a few language interpreter libraries out there but I don't remember what or where at this point. They came up during the hackathon I went to.

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 18:23

oh you used a list
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 18:25
yar. but I believe there are APIs out there. When I did that I had more API then JS experience so I went the pure JS route,
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 18:26

Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 16 2016 18:27

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 18:28

Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 16 2016 18:29
yea it showed as the same link I clicked to get to the rules so I thought I was missing something
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 18:29
different link
rules is something like rules1, submission is just 1 or something like that.
i'm mobile atm.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart

And it's back. Going by twitter many people had an issue. Gotta love tech
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 16 2016 19:00
now the desktop version appears to not be working
at least the messaging
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 19:02
that's where I had problems first. Then I lost my sidebars. Now everything it back. Maybe the fix will propagate to you soon. I am to understand that different users are in different version groups (so they can "AB" test, but I'm sure they do more than just A & B).
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 16 2016 19:02
it must be something they're doing intentionally for an update or something then because mine was fine the whole time. until now
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 19:03
It's the way facebook handles their versioning.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 16 2016 19:05
and of course right when I need to send a mass message putting a shop on blast
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 16 2016 19:13
Did it come back for you yet? I didn't notice how long mine was down.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446

@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 22:44
me too
I love github :octocat: so much I think i'm going to move my to do list to it. Completing github issues is my new obsession, its so addictive
all the tasks can be issue and I can create webhooks to recompile and organize the task list, its perfect
in my eyes at least
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
Jun 16 2016 22:54
web hooks from your desktop?
David Castner
@davidjcastner
Jun 16 2016 22:59
No, whenever I submit an issue it will recompile a task list and separate them into categories based on label and milestone. It something to help me keep more organized. So if I'm struggling to think of what I need to do I can just look at my list pick something and do it. Also it will keep track of stuff that I've complete so I see how far I've come
@rmaylie9560 I'll show you when I have it set up
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
Jun 16 2016 23:04
Whoa. Please share.
