oops, wireshark has been running all night :')
I now have a trace of 26 million packets, and a frozen wireshark

Does someone remember when I asked about the Assassin Pill? Well, support apparently screwed up and now someone is walking around with a similar item, the Assassin Token: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/4l4qa6/support_sent_the_wrong_item_do_assassin_tokens/ :smile:

this is why we used to have a whitelist of items they were allowed to give out :unamused:

@queicherius i hope it is a joke, but given the recent npm desaster, i fear it's not...

Without taking a look I'm gonna say there's at least one node package that does hello world
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
May 27 2016 12:03
I sure hope so
Christian
@zeeZ
May 27 2016 12:06
I wonder what's the highest amount of packages you can use to achieve hello world output without doing things that don't contribute to that
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 12:07
seriously, this whole js package stuff went nuts
like really completely nuts
and tbh. it discourages me from using JS again
Christian
@zeeZ
May 27 2016 12:09
but see, if I use add1 and something breaks, it's not my bug
so the more packages I use the less bugs I personally have to deal with!
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
May 27 2016 12:11
@zeeZ that's one way of seeing it. It's like at work, if my analyst gives me a piece of code, and he's like add this here. I'll do it, if it breaks it's not my fault
he gave me the piece of code
:D

@Coffee4cr @zeeZ i guess that's how most of those who create shit like that see it. someone has to tell them that they're wrong...

Nothing but imports and deeply nested function calls with a single root..

do you know how it feels to dump so much monies for pc stuff?
right, it feels like "I NEED TO CLEAN UP MY DESK"

i'll stick to often upgrading my GTX X60 cards, feels like more value for money
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 16:35
i did that for a long time, too. but in the end, it lasted mostly until the following year, when all the games would come out, the current GFX wasn't able to handle anymore
but also, the 10 series really looks like a long time investment
windwarrior
@windwarrior
May 27 2016 16:36
well, I went from 560 -> 960 only because my card died on me
but yeah, playing indies and gw2 is not heavy
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 16:37
460 -> 970 here, mostly because when I wanted to record/stream video content, I can now rely on NVENC :D
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 16:39
The only thing I wanted to stream was programming stuff... and there my very strong upload (1mb) only allows me very shitty resolution. And reading code on like 420p is just garbage. :worried:
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 16:40
nah, just set your display resolution to that :P

NOW PEOPLE SAVED OVER MY SHIT
Fuck this wiki shit
If it wouldnt take literally an hour to save something this wouldnt be a problem...

502 - Web server received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server.

My wiki experience of the last hour in a nutshell. :(

smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 16:49
oh, that one... well, i got used to it after a while - just press CTRL+A+C before submit... ;)
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 16:51
Its just that i tried to preview my changes for about 35 mins and it never worked... then I just saved, and (ofc) something was broken. So i tried to save the fix for 30 mins... and then it tells me that someone else saved over it (and broke it even more).
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 16:51
(it is, in fact, sometimes frustrating to edit the wikis because of the random 502s...)
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 16:51
I have it somewhere open in sublime
Usually I only get one random 502 and then it works
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 16:51
i wonder what causes these nowadays
in the beginning it was a combination of DPL and SMW which then caused the backend to crash or whatever
the EN wiki also had a problem because of too many transclusions AFAIR

gw2 is also... wait that doesn't sound right
gw2 is awesome! :P

I'm fully convinced that software always turns out to be bad
name me one piece of unquestionably good non-trivial software

I'd argue Git is pretty close. It's not crazy consumer friendly, but its good.
Archomeda
@Archomeda

non-trivial

pff

windwarrior
@windwarrior
May 27 2016 17:01
git is indeed pretty close
(@Archomeda, I managed to create a bug in a Hello World program once, it printed Hell World instead)
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 17:04
@codemasher I think it is the transclusions. When I edit my own page it's instant, with the page I was editing (Black_Lion_Weapons_Specialist_(The_Vaults)) it has loads of them and it's erroring. But yay, my edit finally went through. Hype.

general question, is it guaranteed i get every character of an account by using ?ids=all?
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 17:14
@queicherius gz! :D
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 17:14
or do i also need to include the page_size?
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 17:14
as long as the acc has < 50 characters, i guess there's no need
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 17:15
urgh, how many characters can an account even have?
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 17:15
that's a good question - in GW1 it was 36 i believe
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 17:17
oh well, i'll go with page_size=200 just in case someone with 50+ characters actually wants to join raids
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 17:17
also, isn't page_size supposed to have a max of 50?
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 17:17
@Archomeda 70 is the max. You can get all of em with ?page=0&page_size=200
smiley
@codemasher
May 27 2016 17:18
wait, no, forget that (200... haven't used that in a while...) :D
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 17:18
@queicherius, cool :)

@codemasher
May 27 2016 17:20
hmm, so i have a problem now. i bought this fancy gfx and totally forgot that i'm midst in renovating my apartment.
means, i have no space to put those 2 monitors on... :D
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 17:23
i just noticed... https://github.com/arenanet/api-cdi/blob/master/mumble.md, wasn't race_id also added some time ago?
or just race, can't remember what it was exactly
@codemasher just keep them in the box... even though you probably can't resist the urge to open it :D
windwarrior
@windwarrior
May 27 2016 17:28
the official limit on characters is 64, @Archomeda
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 17:29
@windwarrior Nope, they increased it to 69 with HoT and if you have the HoT preorder character slot you can have 70
windwarrior
@windwarrior
May 27 2016 17:29
but but but
now its not a power of two anymore :O
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 17:31

I am gonny quote @lye here (hope thats ok) for an issue that I had the other day:

A non-trial account gets 5 character slots.
You can buy up to 64 character slot "features" (69 total).
You can also have 1 "buy-up character slot" "feature" for pre-ordering HoT
So it's possible for accounts to have 70 characters, but only if they pre-ordered HoT
(by my reading, at least)

The issue was that someone wrote me why the statistics showed people with 70 characters when he only could get 69
windwarrior
@windwarrior
May 27 2016 17:32
I wonder how much a characterslot costs anet... in terms of storage and backups
a character has what? 2MB of data
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 17:35
i would say it will cost them less than all the logs they keep :smile:
Christian
@zeeZ
May 27 2016 17:37
the amount of skyrim mods you could play with that stuff

May 27 2016 19:47
@Archomeda If you have the time (and you didnt finish HOPE yet), I just deployed that the crafting calculator uses achievement progression. Could you check if it works for you? Might have to hardrefresh. :)
David Reeß
@queicherius
May 27 2016 19:58
I would check myself but the only key I have of you doesn't include the progression stuff. :D
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 27 2016 19:59
I'll check, currently I'm in the third part, but I suppose gw2e will now exclude those special collection items in the crafting too

@lye Looks like the "Eldvin Monastery Brew of the Month Club" achievement is not whitelisted (probably because no one completed it yet?) :(
