blgger and up vote each other on stack overflow while discussing Shane’s MOM

How can you announce this on SO?

Oh…

Sure…go for it.

I’ll downvote it.

🙂

We should also add it into the [r] wiki.

I added it to the wiki.

We should probably try to clean that up a little; some of the other tags have put a lot of effort into it. (e.g. stackoverflow.com/tags/java/info)

Whoa! I didn’t downvote your post.

I was wondering… Feel free to upvote it to set it back to even.

3:18 PM

I did.

Someone voted to close too.

Some people take themselves way too seriously…

Yup. And not unlike the people constantly call for community-wiki.

BTW I didn’t see the button for CW anymore once it was posted. What am I missing?

I think that I may have seen something about a bug related to that…

Four close votes, and -2 score. Whoa Nelly.

Ha! I’m not overly surprised. Meant to suggest that you use CW…

Ironically, you’re still ahead in the rep. on this question, right? Although I think that it might get downvoted into oblivion before we’re done…

I up-voted. Dirk, I’ve got your back. 😉

@DirkEddelbuettel you catch Ajay’s latest? ow.ly/3a8gK

Jeebus

I had actually unsub’ed from his feed. Now I know why. How you’re doing with the Yahoo Pipes app?

Methinks he has some sort of clinical compulsive condition given how every single post has to include a reference that his facvourite software company from NC, and/or members of their management team.

@DirkEddelbuettel I stumbled on that one in Twitter. pipes project has been tabled while I fight some other battles.

I think he’s fishing for SEO sugar with his posts. His use of words seems contrived to include key words over and over

Twitter is so useless, between him and Ed Borasky’s (znmeb) spambots nothing else of value appers.

I guess like so many streams it requires filtering. The basic twitter blocking takes them out pretty quickly

So blocking is common? They ought to show that: “subscribed to N, listened to by M and showing good taste by blocking O asshats”

ha! yeah that would be good signaling. Not sure how common it is, but I use it mostly for spam bots. I actually have only blocked 2 warm blooded humans (counting Ajay’s multiple accts as one person)

Oh boy 🙂 Romain has fired a salvo on r-devel: “Depends on what your goal is: getting the job done, or learning about the R/C API”. Hehe.

@JDLong Tell who: One is Shane’s mother, and the other is … ?

speaking of shane’s mom, he and Josh deciding to be productive members of real society today?

Getting Inside R

Forums and Minerals, the new Internet tools
Image via Wikipedia

I loved the new upgraded design of Inside-R, Revo’s new(?) community.

And promptly shot up a blog application.

What makes Inside- R- slightly better than SDC, Analyticbridge,PlanetR and R _bloggers (with due respects)

  1. Open Id logins (I think thats a new and good step)
  2. Options for automated feed parsing for blogs
  3. More than just a blog aggregator- includes sections on other stuff- thus more like a community than a big feed
  4. Abbreviated feeds- just gives you two-three lines of summary per post  than the whole big schmakaround -thats a time saver for me —(D Smith is the only -lonely blogger atm there)
  5. The more the merrier- One more place to read and write R.


btw is the name insider (as in guy who knows inside stuff) or Inside- R (as in get inside the R box)- just kidding. With PlyR, ManipulatR, ApplyR and now Inside R- the pun gets MerrieR

If my blog app gets rejected- these views may change ,grr
