have a fix, integrating now
(also added a test for /v2/traits?ids=all&lang=fr -- I should look for other places that are missing that)

@windwarrior RE:

btw, how many times did you leave anet late because of 5PM pushes?

see when you don't push at 5PM you get bad luck breakage

it's really the 1PM deploys that you gotta be weary of
@queicherius @Archomeda fix is deployed, sorry about that.

@lye How many unit tests do you have at this point? And what are all of them? XD
over 200; they're more integration tests than unit tests but "unit" is easier to say/type
they basically just make API requests and check the structure of the response and stuff
they're super boring

I may be too daft to edit sudoers

visudo
sudo visudo

su root -c "sudo visudo"
wait does visudo prompt for root? I've always used sudo visudo
visudo: /usr/local/etc/sudoers: Permission denied

Wait, what linux distro has sudoers in /usr/local/etc?
umm bro
FreeBSD twilight 10.3-STABLE FreeBSD

but what's wrong with /etc/sudoers
that's not where non-base config resides
man 7 hier
sudo is not part of the base install
so the config for it goes in /usr/local
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:29
Well evidently every config file I've edited has been wrong
huh
agreed; linux is pretty backwards

So when is the FreeBSD client for GW2 coming out? ;)
not before the OSX client

Hmmmm, debian may have a different manpage for hier
/etc   Contains configuration files which are local to the machine.  Some larger software packages, like X11, can have their own subdirectories below  /etc.
              Site-wide  configuration files may be placed here or in /usr/etc.  Nevertheless, programs should always look for these files in /etc and you may have
              links for these files to /usr/etc.
local to this machine
not /usr/local

Installed packages are still local
wait /usr/etc is a thing? I've never seen that before.
I have barely any linux experience, so ... I have interesting opinions about it
on FreeBSD, pretty much all your config goes in /usr/local/etc, unless it's for software that comes with the base install

Iunno. I've done many a google search for _____ config location

I really like FreeBSD, but unfortunately, even trying to run much of a desktop on it is tough ..
it's not too bad provided you have an nvidia card
nvidia's drivers have been on point since ... FreeBSD 8 I wanna say? after superpage support was added to the kernel
dkettman
@dkettman
Jun 18 2016 04:33
Well, that is the next card I'm looking at getting ... so I may be back to dual-booting ..
those guys actually know what they're doing -- it's the same codebase across linux/windows/freebsd/osx
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:33
I have really, -really- wanted to try making my everyday desktop a linux box
probably arch
dkettman
@dkettman
Jun 18 2016 04:33
Though all I do on Windows is GW2
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:33
but I couldn't even get gw2 to work right
eh, that's what dual-booting is for I guess
dkettman
@dkettman
Jun 18 2016 04:34
Best I have found for desktop was Fedora. I got GW2 running, but my video card is crap to begin with, so performance was crappy
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:34
Yeah, the problem with that is I'll just end up booting to windows and never linux
I had that problem, so I built a second machine for my windows box :|

I don't have quite -that- much hardware lying around XD
eh, I don't throw good hardware away -- this machine is ancient
it's got a 560 Ti and some ancient dusty AMD CPU
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:35
I gave my old tower to my parents/sister
Not thrown away, but also not usable by me really

Jun 18 2016 04:36
Yeah, my desktop is 5+ years old, but works fine, just need a better video card
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:36
I would like to replace this 760..
those 1080's sure look nice
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:36
760 Ti I think
I really wish ATI would get their act together on the driver front so I actually had a choice in hardware
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:37
Speaking of NVidia, you ever had an issue where GeForce experience swears there's no driver update when there is?
not that I can recall; though I think I've disabled automatic driver updates
my windows machine basically has all automatic updates disabled these days, it's a pretty sad state
I'm almost to the point where I make it my new dev machine and then turn this old heap into a fileserver or something
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jun 18 2016 04:39
I just remember Overwatch complaining I had an outdated driver..So I went to NVidia's program and it said no updates, so I ignored it. Later I went on the actual website and I was WAY out of date...
(and eschew windows completely)
ah, I always go straight to nvidia's site :/
there's almost always a new driver it seems
(probably because whenever a game releases they release a new driver that monkey-patches the game to work correctly)

if (game.name == "Guild Wars 2") exit(1);
I don't know enough about graphics programming to know exactly what they do
I imagine it's basically to define all the undefined behavior that the game unwittingly relies on
(in as far as the game's interaction with the GPU)

Reminds me of NES/SNES code that abused the console's VSync for certain effects
yeah, but abusing {v,h}sync and timing issues is not as bad when the hardware is standardized

Yeah, graphic companies basically fix the mistakes that gaming companies have in their engine
Probably because opengl and directx are complex
(and re: Pushing at 5 might make you sharp because your weekend is at stake ;) )

furthermore, my package manager does a great job of following nvidia drivers

I had a '.' in the file name in sudoers.d I tried to visudo. Maybe I shouldn't do that kind of thing way past my bedtime
