nah, stopped running in its t(h)read(mill)
just fed the hamster
not sure how i forgot to do that on release day
crap i need to regen map tiles to ughhhh
we need to do fewer releases
Darqam
@Darqam
Jul 26 2017 16:26
well you have a break now I guess
this was the last episode of the season right?
thank goodness
Darqam
@Darqam
Jul 26 2017 16:28
yup
now just get things ready for the storm that will be expansion, on... when was it again?
ha ha you almost got me
i can admit that there is an expansion now though
Darqam
@Darqam
Jul 26 2017 16:29
damn
is it later than tomorrow?
it's certainly not before August 1st, 9AM PDT
(though that would be a great plot twist -- release the expansion before it's announced)
Darqam
@Darqam
Jul 26 2017 16:30
LEAKS!!!!
the best announcement would be "BTW, it's out now"
wait wasn't the announcement date announced
Darqam
@Darqam
Jul 26 2017 16:30
it was
okay you actually got me that time
was kind of panicking because we turned on the meta-announcement page yesterday
Darqam
@Darqam
Jul 26 2017 16:31
there was even an in-game message saying aug 1st
ok, now to go back and add all this new info, thanks for feeding the hamster Lye

they just come out and say 'oh what's this big red button -boop-'
'looks like its out now'
I'm going to preface this with I don't know when release is
but if we do another midnight release :vomit:
i don't want to be at work at midnight
Eearslya Sleiarion

when I was 22 I did 48-hour days for a month
32-36 hours awake, 12-16 hours asleep
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 26 2017 16:38
I did 48 hours earlier this week. the problem was when I tried to keep going on my normal sleep schedule of 5 hours a day

@codemasher

sleep schedule is a myth
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 26 2017 16:38
my body was not taking aaany shit from my alarms
that's like ... a normal day for me
i almost bought the alarm clock that has wheels on it
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 26 2017 16:39
I tried out a new alarm app last night that makes you do math
I got so pissed off
'cause it's there going at full volume the whole time
just throw the phone out the window
math problem solved
what we really need is an alarm cat
so when the alarm goes off the cat jumps on your face
and if you throw the cat out the window it just jumps back into the house

writing Ansible playbooks this evening
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 26 2017 17:09
my 12 hour shifts were basically sitting
datacenter technician; basically waiting for things to explode or customers to call
and I worked weekends, so...
Darrian
@rikkuness
Jul 26 2017 17:10
damn that's even more dull ;p
i mean, if you can game at work
I'd probably be satisfied just reading books if not

Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 26 2017 17:22
on a daily basis the only things I was obligated to do was to walk the site and make sure everything wasn't exploded or about to explode, move around some backup tapes, and on rare occasions, run wires and rack equipment
sometimes cleaning, also rare
6am to 6pm every friday, saturday, and sunday, and every other thursday
every. single. weekend.

If anyone's interested
It's basically a web app that shows dailies + hints

Jul 26 2017 20:53
ishmael doesn't dump icons anymore, so we have to get the icons elsewhere

event without a name in the api? EE974B3F-34BD-4D1B-B8D8-E70E3BB2D0F1

@ChieftainAlex yeah I saw that one when I was whitelisting; figured it was fine

If you think it makes sense to remove I can remove it
@darthmaim whitelisted

/v2/achievements/daily is ... kind of ... hardcoded a bit
oh that's weird

I just scraped all of them
not sure why those wouldn't show up
K900
@K900
Jul 26 2017 20:56
And there aren't any
Not whitelisted maybe?
whitelist queue is empty
maybe they changed the code so it doesn't emit events anymore or something
if you happen to have the ids via secret means I could use the missing ids >_>

K900
@K900
Jul 26 2017 21:03
Maybe I was the first person to hit the cache for those IDs at all
it caches the list of ids though
well the servers aren't melting
K900
@K900
Jul 26 2017 21:03
I just hit the URLs directly
yeah but the list of ids that you're allowed to hit should be cached for 5 minutes
K900
@K900
Jul 26 2017 21:04
Huh
so... not really sure what's up with that
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 26 2017 21:04
are errors cached?
no
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 26 2017 21:04
then that's the case here
again it's the list of ids that's caching, not the response
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 26 2017 21:04
hm
you mean internally in your code?
yeah
Archomeda
@Archomeda

@QuagganBooOOoot
Jul 26 2017 21:05
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
the code looks like
validIds = getListOfIds();
wantedAndValidIDs= wantedIds.filter((id) => id in validIds));
wantedValidObjs = wantedAndValidIDs.map((id) => resolveObj(id));
where getListOfIds and resolveObj have separate caches

Does the API run on Node then?
no it's a custom embedded V8 on our in-house distributed systems architecture
it was written before node was a thing so we're super hipster here
K900
@K900
Jul 26 2017 21:07
And I thought my company has hispter tech lol
also I used to update the V8 version so we were always ahead of node but ran into compiler issues a few months back (and then time issues now)
