writing arduino code without ever having owned one while the thing is still in the mail. what could possibly go wrong?
I expect to plug it in, hit that transferwhatever button and then immediately proceed to fry every bluetooth device in the vicinity

I've added the required properties to Template:Recipe on the wiki such that it is now possible to query the wiki for mystic forge item ids/qtys/output id/output qty - i.e. everything that should be necessary to make an api with.
conveniently there aren't more than 5k results, so you won't encounter the SMW bug that nobody has fixed.

Jul 10 2016 11:54
well, that is, as soon as the wiki processes however many thousand pages use the recipe template, and the default item parameter template. 50k?

i hate when this happens in either PvP or Fractals... anyone who encountered this bug (or feature) before?
i couldn't even defend myself :sob:
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:09
happens with mesmer downstate TP as well
the attack has some range
and you were in it
but mail it to support I guess, they might pass it to the PvP teamish?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:10
yeah... it's weird though, why does it even have a range?
you press f to a guy that's in front of you to stomp him, and you stomp another person instead
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:11
I guess because pressing F has some range as well
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:11
the fractal avengers are the worst by abusing this
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:11
I've hit Memser downstate 2 soo many times in fractals
and still die
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:12
i've been killed so many times by one that was finishing of someone else, or my previous avenger after i get up and down again..
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:12
because the tp is random... while ele's have the most overpowered downstate skill

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:12
ele downstate mistform is a hack in the engine anyway :P
the game treats you as being alive in the mean time
and you go down again right after, which spawns another fractal avenger
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:13
yeah, mesmer TP has a tendency to teleport you ~100 units
haha
well vengeance works the same then I guess
oh, but you die from it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:14
yeah, but the warrior is actually alive for 10 more seconds or so
oh right, i forgot there was also another weird bug for eles
go downstate mistform, your team finishes off some enemy that you normally shouldn't be able to rally from (raid bosses/adds), and you rally anyway
but i'm posting this on the forums
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:16
oh yeah
that makes sense
its sad tho that you cannot rally from a raid boss
would be funny, downstating Gorseval or something
and then all be alive
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:17
i actually do think you rally from the bosses themselves, just not the adds
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:18
the adds thats for sure
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 12:18
but most of the time when i'm downed, i'm dead within the next 3 seconds before we kill the boss anyway XD
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 12:19
I had issues getting the spirit strings from Keep Construct
because I either forgot to apply the thing
or went down JUST before killing it

https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/User:Chieftain_Alex/sandbox4 cba figuring out how to query smw api from jsfiddle, but bare bones.. most pages haven't parsed the new values yet.

Looking at "Prototype Fractal Capacitor": https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/items?ids=37051,37050,37052,37053,37054
37051 says stat selectable with [Shaman's, Rabid, Cleric's, Magi's, Valkyrie, Knight's, Rampager's, Carrion, Berserker's, Soldier's, Celestial, Apothecary's, Cavalier's, Sentinel's, Settler's, Assassin's, Dire] ... that sounds like way more combinations than when i last made one of these
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jul 10 2016 13:01
its amazing how fast the wiki propagates template changes when you've made an error
Archomeda

@windwarrior KC is somewhat annoying to fight imo, the random retargets are far from fun :(
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:05
its not a hard fight tho, its doing one thing good three times in a row
and ignore all other mechanics when you can
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:05
yeah, and somehow my group just keeps failing
then again, we had an influx of new people recently in our guild
turns out, i have to organize training runs
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:06
I have killed xera for the first time on a training run
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:06
and it would also seem that i'll have to make them mandatory for new people, since they probably think they don't need training
Archomeda @Archomeda sighs
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:07
tonight's training run: only 3 people signed up
whereas on monday reset we run with almost 2 full groups in which 5-7 people are quite new and actually need training
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:07
I sometimes do trainingruns just for the fun
because tbh, some people in raiding are soo salty, that I like it way more not gettinga boss done with newbies, then getting shouted at for no reason by people way worse than me who got a million Li
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:11
sometimes yes
i hate groups that advertise that they need experienced people with a certain amount of LI, and then someone of their own group fails horribly
my latest pug sloth run on friday went that way
1 left quite soon, and that was my cue to leave too
turns out, it was a training run all along
oh well
anyway, hopefully i can get enough people for tonight, otherwise i'll have to advertise as training run in lfg

@Archomeda

give me your group :P
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:14
we even oneshotted Xera with 2 -had-never-seen-her- people in the group
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:14
maybe some people will learn from that XD

last week we even had issues with the tower defense in w3
took us 2 hours
was horrible
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:15
I did it twice
once we failed a few times
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:15

windwarrior

second time I had to solo the mushroomy bit
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:15
repeatedly
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:15
and my FGS became stuck on a rock... /cry
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:15
:laughing:
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:16
and people started hating on me, including myself
(we tend to send the mesmer through the musroomy bit, and then portal the rest up)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:17
oh haha
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:17
(although its a bit of a shame of the utility slot of the mesmer if you ask me)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:17
it is yeah
mushroom bit isn't that hard to begin with
as long as you dodge some stuff
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:17
well its a bit harder if you dont have someone healing
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:18
well, we tend to run without one
worked fine with the people who have been doing raids for a long time
didn't work too well with some relatively new people
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:19
OHH I know that, having 2 healers at gorseval, and still everyone down all the time
you cannot outheal stupidity
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:19
oh wow
oh, one fun thing at the tower defense
i got feared when i was jumping down from a tower
in mid-air
splat
nothing you can do about that :P
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:20
I just want the reset, and get my three chests again

well having all but one item sucks as well :P, especially because I cannot do anything about it

what was that website again that mirrors apk files from google play?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 13:27
pokemon go turned out to be the best way to get people to go out again
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:28
there are many, but i only remember one that i used to go to but forgot the url
(because in some countries the game is not yet out, people sideload it, and there are already hacked APKs in circulation, site is dutch, sorry)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 13:28
i'm dutch too ;)

Jul 10 2016 13:33
well, seems my install doesn't contain those permissions
so i'm good
and there's no update since i installed it yesterday sadly :(
the app tends to soft lock so now and then
or lose server connection and just sit there
still surprised that sideloading works
i mean, they need your gps location, they can just lock you there if you aren't from any of the countries where it's actually released
oh well, not that i'm complaining
and off i go :)

wow, since when (in the last 5 hours) does youtube use the full screen width?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 10 2016 16:17
just looks like they've made it black only though
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 10 2016 16:18
it uses the full screen up to 2560px it seems
when i switch to full, i've still got blank space left and right... :D
haven't seen that size before :o
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 10 2016 18:02
fun fact: the food they are using is 25g a pop
(and ele's are insane there, +20% dmg from trait plus possibly a +10% dmg sigil)

Jul 10 2016 22:44
yep, but never in PHP :p
good thing python has the excellent Oauthlib
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 10 2016 22:45
php has a "excellent" (as in: used by all big frameworks) lib, too. my repo is a cleaned up fork of that...
so much for "excellent" - i'd rather check the source of that python lib too :D
i've seen things... omg
i wonder if anyone who touches such a lib does actually look into the code or just changes a line or 2
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 10 2016 22:51
one of my faves:
   if($path[0] === '/'){
       $path = substr($path, 1); // we just checked for an array value and use the array as string here - wtf?
   }
(the comment is mine)
(not to mention, that no test detected that)
also good:
        $level = error_reporting(0);
        $response = file_get_contents($endpoint->getAbsoluteUri(), false, $context);
        error_reporting($level);
this is how it's done, just disable the error reporting (why use try{} and catch anyway?)
stuff like this makes me cringe
