Feb 01 2017 00:13
this is getting silly, can't link https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gift_of_Nevermore in-game now
get "can't link from this location"
also, hi
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 00:15
some items are flagged to have restricted linking
it's getting ridiculous with some items yeah :(
@madou o/
i wonder... certain items can only be linked when you have it in your inventory
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 00:16
I could understand when it flagged items not in-game yet, but even then it didn't do that properly
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 00:17
what if anet decides that LI can only be linked when you have them in your inventory
rip LI faking in an instant lol

I'd be ticked having to move it in and out of my bank repeatedly.
Michael Dougall
@madou
Feb 01 2017 00:36
you'd think there would be a better way to judge raid experience than LI
also i really need to get into a raiding guild....
i'm really good at being carried, as indicated by my [250 Legendary Insights]

I mean, he's totally an entire guild of devs.
Anyone else having API problems? I'm wondering if there's a :fire: =/

Feb 01 2017 05:17
ugh gitlab
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:29
oh ouch
that's quite something wow
pretty sure that accidental deletion was because of 1) frustration and 2) tiredness
a bad combination :(
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 05:37
"So in other words, out of 5 backup/replication techniques deployed none are working reliably or set up in the first place." O.o
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:38
yeah, that's just bad... no excuse for that
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 05:38
how do you not notice this when you first put it in place?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:39
they probably knew about it, but they probably did not know about that nothing was working
like as in, various people knew that something wasn't working
but no one knew that nothing was working at all
or something
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 05:42
I guess I just can't picture it. If i'm setting up some form of backup, I always always do a few checks to make sure at least something is working... but my backups are usually just files, so what do I know
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:42
well... yeah
i also have no words for that XD
if things break over time, i can understand
but if it didn't work to begin with.... then why hasn't that been fixed?
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 05:46
todo: "Somehow disallow rm -rf for the PostgreSQL data directory" heh
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:47
"Are you sure?"
"Are you really sure?"
"Are you really really sure?"
"Are you sure that you are really really sure?"
but yeah, i can't imagine what YP must have thought when he noticed he ran that command against the production database
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 05:51
"Did I just..... shit...."
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:52
it's always scary to run such a command
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 05:55

I remember when a friend of mine first showed me basic linux. He sowed me he overwrote that command to have it display a very detailed text with a random 'validation' word in the message. if you didn't type that (obviously not belonging) word you couldn't perform the action.

Still seems like overkill, but he seemed proud of it

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 05:55
haha yeah
seriously, that person that abused the repo for cdn purposes or w/e is either lhao or facepalming hard, or probably even both
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 06:03
also, API acting up for some people?
or is gw2e hit by the gitlab issue?
David Reeß
@queicherius
Feb 01 2017 06:06
no, vmware is just a pile of shit
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 06:07
lol, well I'm glad it's that instead (good luck still though)
David Reeß
@queicherius
Feb 01 2017 06:08
it's like "lul you only have 50gb used space? better provision the harddrive to 300gb and not let you make it smaller and then tell you its too big to start"
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 06:10
that sounds like an.... interesting problem
Michael Dougall
@madou

Oh look, new raid wing. Time for the DPS meter debate and what is legal/isnt legal in the raid LFG guild.\
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 15:14
just had a long conversation with my guild as well. ended up being surmised by "Don't be a dick"
which I think is the ideal standpoint on dps meters
David Reeß
@queicherius
Feb 01 2017 15:17
yeah, but this is the internet, so you cant rely on that. and it's also questionable what the "being a dick" means to an individual.
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 15:18
@queicherius off-topic, does gw2e lookup and show a character's build/traits? I can't remember
David Reeß
@queicherius
Feb 01 2017 15:18
e.g. i wouldn't mind getting told that I'm doing something wrong and I could improve by using X item or Y rotation, but I know a lot of people that would kick off about that
yes, if you tick the box for it when initially sharing the character
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 15:19
thanks
I agree though, it's subjective what "being a dick" would be. But imo in a raid, you should be willing to receive a critic saying "You are doing 5k dps lower than anyone other dps atm, maybe figure it out"
and then there's being a dick to get rid of the burden which comes in with the wrong armor/runes/traits
David Reeß
@queicherius
Feb 01 2017 15:22
idk if that is different on other servers, but at least on german one's there is a big "play as you want" crowd
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 15:23
you have some groups like that on NA, but the issue is people joining an "experienced, quick full clear group" while running rampager stats on a dps ele. Yes I've seen that
Archomeda

gitlab live stream: gitter don't embed this :P
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 15:56
the sad thing tho, there are certain niche builds that are never considered
a friend of mine was playing chrono with Herald Runes
and was promptly pointed out as not playing "meta enough"
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 15:57
lol
a guildie of mine uses it because he's too lazy to farm crystalline ore
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 15:58
while it does provide solid uptime of prot
leadership runes are dispropotionally hard to get
and too OP to deny
I grinded for durability runes a few weeks ago
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 16:00
I use herald runes on my chrono for pug runs that struggle, they are very very useful
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 16:00
and that was way faster then the leadership runes
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 16:00
it's what, like 30-40% uptime of prot if you do the rotation properly?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 16:01
depends on how you SoI
you get 4 seconds from the rune, and 6 seconds from SoI
also with the mantra heal its probably possible to have 100% uptime
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 16:02
O.o
oh I guess multiple casts of heal
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 16:02
the ICD is 10s on the rune
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 16:03
yeah, but the well of eternity cd (which is what I usually use) is 30secs, so I don't mind it
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 16:04
so if you cast heals every 10s you get 40% uptime, you can cast signets every 12 seconds (either trait or the actual signet) for another 50% uptime
Darqam
@Darqam
Feb 01 2017 16:04
interesting, but I imagine your quickness takes a bit of a hit
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 16:04
and ICDs get reset by Continuum Split
or... actually, ICDs from traits do, but I dont know about runes
chrono can still do fun stuff with SoI
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:31
oh no, my phone provider is stopping with MMS
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:32
oh no
(who still uses that?)
(actually, who used it?)
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:32
its pretty pointless in the whatsapp era
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:32
i can't remember myself or any of my friends using it
just because sending one was horribly expensive
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:33
wasnt it like 45 cent or something like that
but to download you needed internet too
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:33
oh haha, that makes me remember iMode
or something
prequel of mobile internet in the netherlands
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Feb 01 2017 17:40
stopping MMS what
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:41
oh wait, it was spelled i-mode
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:43
Yeah @tivac, my (dutch) provider will stop supporing MMS in 2019
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Feb 01 2017 17:43
that's a real shitty thing to do
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:43
which provider?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:43
why, it never got a foothold in The Netherlands
T-Mobile
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:43
ah
but yeah, exactly that
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Feb 01 2017 17:44
I find MMS for group texting/sending pictures way more useful than a seperate chat app, but I'm a grumpy old man
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:45
I think 95% of dutch people use WhatsApp now
I havent sent a text in months
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:45
and not even 5% used MMS
pretty sure that 99% of the people here don't even know what MMS is
heck, providers don't even advertise with it, it's only "x amount of free minutes / SMS + x MB data"
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:46
also, people are already talking about shutting off 3G, only keeping 2G/4G around
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:46
now that's a shitty move
not all smartphones have 4G
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:47
in 2020 or so :P relax
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:47
and i don't even have a 4G connection all the time, because KPN is a company with terrible connection indoors
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:48
well if they shut off 3G they can use those frequencies for 4G
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:50
meh
indoors i mostly have H+, outdoors LTE most of the time
and sometimes i have E indoors xD
but edge is really slow for internet >_>
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:52
its fun to see how Brazil intends to use 4G technology, they want to use it to higher peoples accessibility to internet where we are using it to get crazy speed
they are way more interested in making a covering network
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:53
also, didn't 4G lack the cell broadcasting support or something?
that thing that the government here likes to use for emergency broadcasts in your area
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:53
yeah, cell broadcasting is a pretty old standard tho
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:54
now i'm unsure if 3G lacked it also or not
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:54
so unused that manufacturers stopped implementing it for a while
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:54
and yet they want to use it here instead of keeping the alarm towers here
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:54
it might have been part of the original GSM spec
its perfect for one2many transmissions
it just wasnt used yet
my phone goes completely crazy when I get a cell broadcast tho
YOU HAVE TO READ THIS AND I AM NOT GONNA SHUT UP ABOUT IT
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:56
in case other people here don't know what i'm talking about, the netherlands use emergency population warnings in case of regional/national disasters, but the government doesn't like the maintenance costs of these things and they want to switch to cell broadcasting instead
i'm still waiting for the reactions, well my phone battery died, why is everyone running?
i think my cell broadcasting is enabled, cyanogenmod even lists "Amber Alert"
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:58
personally I am always too far away from the sirens
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:58
but i never seem to get anything
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:58
so am pretty glad that we are getting cell broadcasts now
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:58
well, i have like 10 here nearby that i hear when they are testing them :P
the thing is, why not both?
even if 95% of the people have a cell phone that support it, it's still that 5% that never get the message
this is just one of the things i will never understand why they have decided to this
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 17:59
both costs money
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 17:59
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 18:00
you know how great the dutch government is in techy solutions
they are late, horribly over budget and still bad
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 18:00

De huidige beheers- en onderhoudskosten bedragen bijna 4 miljoen euro per jaar en de kosten zullen stijgen als de vaak meer dan twintig jaar oude sirenes vervangen moeten worden.

4 million euro a year... it's not like they don't have it

they have other things that costs billions of euros XD
but yeah, you're on point with that
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Feb 01 2017 18:02
but choosing between cell broadcasts and the traditional sirens is a definitive cell broadcasts for me
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Feb 01 2017 18:03
do the iphones support it nowadays?
