    @wiki Lorem ipsum
  • 3
    @theabbie In publishing and graphic design, Lorem ipsum is a placeholder text commonly used to demonstrate the visual form of a document or a typeface without relying on meaningful content. Lorem ipsum may be used before final copy is available, but it may also be used to temporarily replace copy in a process called greeking, which allows designers to consider form without the meaning of the text influencing the design.

    @wiki Hello world!
  • 6
    @Jilano A "Hello, World!" program generally is a computer program that outputs or displays the message "Hello, World!". Such a program is very simple in most programming languages, and is often used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language. It is often the first program written by people learning to code. It can also be used as a sanity test to make sure that a computer language is correctly installed, and that the operator understands how to use it.

    @theabbie Could be useful, but the image might not be worth (mostly due to devRant's compression even though it could serve a purpose for certain entries)

    @Jilano It does look good with image, if quality is the problem, I can use DuckDuckGo for images, it gives better quality images

    @wiki mass surveillance
  • 4
    @linuxxx Mass surveillance is the intricate surveillance of an entire or a substantial fraction of a population in order to monitor that group of citizens. The surveillance is often carried out by local and federal governments or governmental organisations, such as organizations like the NSA and the FBI, but it may also be carried out by corporations (either on behalf of governments or at their own initiative). Depending on each nation's laws and judicial systems, the legality of and the permission required to engage in mass surveillance varies. It is the single most indicative distinguishing trait of totalitarian regimes. It is also often distinguished from targeted surveillance.

    @theabbie No matter the original quality, it'll get butchered anyway. But more than that, is it useful in the first place?

    For example, the link is great I case you want to learn more or the summary isn't long enough, but the image? It might be for something with an easily recognised image/schematic, but that's it.

    Edit: If this page gets ranked high enough on Google, we might get super meta and linked on the Wikipedia's related page.

    @linuxxx Facebook (stylized as facebook) is an American online social media and social networking service based in Menlo Park, California, and a flagship service of the namesake company Facebook, Inc. It was founded by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.

    I'm waiting for the source but I agree that the image is redundant and I hate to see it use up server space, especially since it's unreadable and doesn't actually contribute much (since the content is the text, and the image is just for effect)

    @wiki no relevant result
  • 1
    @theuser Relevance is a measurement of the degree to which material (fact, detail or opinion) relates to the topic of an article. Degree of relevance should be taken into consideration for most decisions on whether or not to include material. This is a goal statement intended to influence the application and evolution of policies, guidelines and editorial processes, not to restate current policies and guidelines. Material that is irrelevant or out of scope to an article's topic can unnecessarily bloat an article, making it difficult for a reader to remain focused, and can also give the material undue weight.

    @AlmondSauce A data breach is the intentional or unintentional release of secure or private/confidential information to an untrusted environment. Other terms for this phenomenon include unintentional information disclosure, data leak, information leakage and also data spill. Incidents range from concerted attacks by black hats, or individuals who hack for some kind of personal gain, associated with organized crime, political activist or national governments to careless disposal of used computer equipment or data storage media and unhackable source.

    You are vulnerable to query parameter injection. I would recommend encoding the URI components before concatenating the string.

    For example if I do @ wiki &safe=false&site=(any site)

    It will interpret as actual query parameters
  • 0
    @AlmondSauce Do you like image in result or not?
  • 1
    @AlgoRythm It will be q=&safe=false.., not desirable, but not vulnerable, It will break though
  • 0
    @AlgoRythm Yeah, you can do that site thing, That needs more than just encoding
  • 0
    @wiki porn site:pornhub.org
  • 1
  • 3
    @theabbie vulnerable if I point it to a site that breaks devRant TOS or is illegal in your country, etc etc.

    Also there is no error handling so it looks like if you get one bad query, the whole program will fail, and if there are say, 5 queries within one minute, and the first breaks, the other 4 will too.

    It looks like the whole program would fail continuously because you don't clear notifications until the end, so the "bad" query would still get processed forever.
  • 1
    @AlgoRythm I should add try...catch block in loop, on error, skip it and cleae notification at end
  • 2
    Here is regex to remove site, is very simple.

    .replace(/site:/gi, "");
  • 1
    @AlgoRythm I want to remove the website following site: too, more like /site:\w+/gi
  • 1
    @theabbie clear notifications at the top, because it won't affect your array of already downloaded notifications. Also since the notifications may take time to process, it is less likely you clear an unprocessed notification
  • 1
    @theabbie I don't see a reason to remove that, it could be part of the user's actual query.

    Only remove the part you need. I would only remove the semicolon following "site" if I were you. That way it breaks the Google syntax but leaves as much of the original query as possible
  • 2
    Also, not sure why you are using express for this. If this is a cron job like you said, just call

    node /path/to/script

    In your crontab.

    Remove express, replace "app.get" with "main", and call main at the end of the file.

    Now your script doesn't need to run a whole web server just for a devRant bot
  • 1
    @AlgoRythm It's not running on my local machine or a VM, I am hosting it on Runkit, you can only host serverless endpoints there, I am using a seperate cron service that pings that endpoint Every minute.
  • 2
    @theabbie I see. That's a shame, it could be much more lightweight. Do you not have a personal server at your house or something? Raspberry Pi perhaps?
  • 1
    @AlgoRythm Not yet, How's it Shame? It's free afterall, I code on phone btw, I could even run it on phone, but hosting is more reliable.
  • 2
    @theabbie Not a big shame, but any waste of resources is a shame. Efficiency is beautiful.
  • 2
    @theabbie And I would very much recommend the purchase of a raspberry pi. They are very inexpensive and would be very good for you.
  • 1
    @AlgoRythm Still, how is that waste of resources? we need cron service for that, if it was on my local machine, it would use my resources, it's on cloud and is using there resources, same thing. or, are you talking about algorithm?
  • 1
    @theabbie I am talking about express. If I understand your script correctly, you do this:

    -You have a web server running constantly and waiting for any request (get/*)
    -Upon request, it runs the boy's job
    -Every minute, you send HTTP request to the running server to run the job

    You don't need to run a web server at all. You could simply do this:

    -Cron job starts your script every minute
    -Script does it's job as a bot
    -Script exits after it is done

    This way, you do not need to consume the memory of express, and an HTTP server. You also don't need to send any HTTP traffic to activate.
  • 2
    @theabbie I don’t get it why this bot just like the last one posts images THIS fucked. Is it somehow difficult to make the image quality better, especially when there is the highlight bot that gives good quality images?

    Aside from the image quality, wiki bot is great. Suitable for lmgtfy situations

    @wiki Bouba-kiki
  • 2
    @uyouthe The bouba/kiki effect is a non-arbitrary mapping between speech sounds and the visual shape of objects. This effect was first observed by German-American psychologist Wolfgang Köhler in 1929. In psychological experiments first conducted on the island of Tenerife (where the primary language is Spanish), Köhler showed forms similar to those shown at the right and asked participants which shape was called "takete" and which was called "baluba" ("maluma" in the 1947 version). Although not explicitly stated, Köhler implies that there was a strong preference to pair the jagged shape with "takete" and the rounded shape with "baluba".

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
  • 2
    @uyouthe Honestly I suspect perhaps devRant noticed high volume of data from his network and is pumping up the compression as a reaction. The memes bot started off with relatively decent images, and now everything is DEEP fried.
  • 1
    Server is not as heavy as it might seem, and Runkit does it, and Using local machine or raspberry Pi will use power (though very little), and Runkit is good at hosting endpoints so they must be having an efficient way to host it and would use less resources. And I find cloud hosting better than local hosting, it's safe, reliable, scalable, and cheaper (free).
  • 2
    @AlgoRythm TIL devRant is a moderator on /r/deepfriedmemes
  • 0
    @uyouthe I removed that image part, if you want better quality images, I can use DDG for images, it's better than Google atleast in this case.
  • 2
    @theabbie I understand, and I understand your reasons for this design. My only comment was that there are better ways to activate a bot every minute than to have a web server running constantly.

    But since this is the way that you host your bot, it makes some sense.
  • 0
    @AlgoRythm no, Google is the culprit for images, they cache low quality images for performance.
  • 0
    @AlgoRythm In this case, I don't have any option, There are services like webtask which alllow inbuilt cron job without hosting, that would be better, The most efficient solution would be DevRant allowing webhook that will notify on any mention, till then, wasting resources is a necessity.

    Fixed it, updated gist, I still think clearing notification at end is better, because if somehow code fucks up, we won't lose unprocessed mentions.
  • 1
    @theabbie that's a valid solution. In my opinion, error handling should ensure nothing fucks up, and clearing notifications as soon as possible is best to make sure none get lost by accident

    @theabbie The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, heated to incandescence by nuclear fusion reactions in its core, radiating the energy mainly as light and infrared radiation. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Its diameter is about 1.39 million kilometers (864,000 miles), or 109 times that of Earth, and its mass is about 330,000 times that of Earth. It accounts for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System.
    Roughly three quarters of the Sun's mass consists of hydrogen (~73%); the rest is mostly helium (~25%), with much smaller quantities of heavier elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon, and iron.

    @theabbie Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only astronomical object known to harbor life. According to radiometric dating estimation and other evidence, Earth formed over 4.5 billion years ago. Earth's gravity interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and the Moon, which is Earth's only natural satellite. Earth orbits around the Sun in about 365.25 days.

    @coffeedrinker Jean-Baptiste Joseph Fourier (/ˈfʊrieΙͺ, -iΙ™r/; French: [fuʁje]; 21 March 1768 – 16 May 1830) was a French mathematician and physicist born in Auxerre and best known for initiating the investigation of Fourier series, which eventually developed into Fourier analysis and harmonic analysis, and their applications to problems of heat transfer and vibrations. The Fourier transform and Fourier's law of conduction are also named in his honour. Fourier is also generally credited with the discovery of the greenhouse effect.

    @coffeedrinker The number π (/paΙͺ/) is a mathematical constant. It is defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and it also has various equivalent definitions. It appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics. It is approximately equal to 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π" since the mid-18th century, and is spelled out as "pi". It is also referred to as Archimedes' constant.

    @subspace Uncle Sam (initials U.S.) is a common national personification of the U.S. federal government or the country in general that, according to legend, came into use during the War of 1812 and was supposedly named for Samuel Wilson. The actual origin is by a legend. Since the early 19th century, Uncle Sam has been a popular symbol of the US government in American culture and a manifestation of patriotic emotion. While the figure of Uncle Sam represents specifically the government, Columbia represents the United States as a nation.

    @ddit Life is a characteristic that distinguishes physical entities that have biological processes, such as signaling and self-sustaining processes, from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased (they have died), or because they never had such functions and are classified as inanimate. Various forms of life exist, such as plants, animals, fungi, protists, archaea, and bacteria. Biology is the science concerned with the study of life.

    @translate The software utility cron also known as cron job is a time-based job scheduler in Unix-like computer operating systems. Users that set up and maintain software environments use cron to schedule jobs (commands or shell scripts) to run periodically at fixed times, dates, or intervals. It typically automates system maintenance or administration—though its general-purpose nature makes it useful for things like downloading files from the Internet and downloading email at regular intervals. The origin of the name cron is from the Greek word for time, χρόνος (chronos).

    @theabbie The Big Bang theory is a cosmological model of the observable universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution. The model describes how the universe expanded from an initial state of extremely high density and high temperature, and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of observed phenomena, including the abundance of light elements, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation, and large-scale structure.

    @kurast Phosphine (IUPAC name: phosphane) is a colorless, flammable, very toxic gas compound with the chemical formula PH3, classed as a pnictogen hydride. Pure phosphine is odorless, but technical grade samples have a highly unpleasant odor like rotting fish, due to the presence of substituted phosphine and diphosphane (P2H4). With traces of P2H4 present, PH3 is spontaneously flammable in air (pyrophoric), burning with a luminous flame.

    @F1973 Fuck is a profane English-language word which often refers to the act of sexual intercourse but is also commonly used as an intensifier or to denote disdain. While its origin is obscure, it is usually considered to be first attested to around 1475. In modern usage, the term fuck and its derivatives (such as fucker and fucking) can be used as a noun, a verb, an adjective, an interjection or an adverb. There are many common phrases that employ the word as well as compounds that incorporate it, such as motherfucker, fuckwit, fuckup, fucknut and fuck off.

    @theabbie The breast is one of two prominences located on the upper ventral region of the torso of primates. In females, it serves as the mammary gland, which produces and secretes milk to feed infants. Both females and males develop breasts from the same embryological tissues. At puberty, estrogens, in conjunction with growth hormone, cause breast development in female humans and to a much lesser extent in other primates. Breast development in other primate females generally only occurs with pregnancy.

    @F1973 The great tit (Parus major) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common species throughout Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and east across the Palearctic to the Amur River, south to parts of North Africa where it is generally resident in any sort of woodland; most great tits do not migrate except in extremely harsh winters. Until 2005 this species was lumped with numerous other subspecies. DNA studies have shown these other subspecies to be distinctive from the great tit and these have now been separated as two distinct species, the cinereous tit of southern Asia, and the Japanese tit of East Asia. The great tit remains the most widespread species in the genus Parus.

  • 1
    @F1973 Cleavage is the narrow depression or hollow between human breasts. The top portion of cleavage may be accentuated by clothing such as a low-cut neckline that exposes the division. Joseph Breen, head of the U.S. Production Code Administration (PCA), coined the term in its current meaning when evaluating the 1941 Jane Russell starrer The Outlaw. The term was explained in Time magazine on August 5, 1946. It is most commonly used in the parlance of Western female fashion to refer to necklines that reveals or emphasizes décolletage or display of the upper breast area.

    A penetration test, colloquially known as a pen test, pentest or ethical hacking, is an authorized simulated cyberattack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the system. Not to be confused with a vulnerability assessment. The test is performed to identify both weaknesses (also referred to as vulnerabilities), including the potential for unauthorized parties to gain access to the system's features and data, as well as strengths, enabling a full risk assessment to be completed.

    @kwilliams Sid Meier's Civilization is a 1991 turn-based strategy 4X video game developed and published by MicroProse. The game was originally developed for MS-DOS running on a PC, and has undergone numerous revisions for various platforms. The player is tasked with leading an entire human civilization over the course of several millennia by controlling various areas such as urban development, exploration, government, trade, research, and military. The player can control individual units and advance the exploration, conquest and settlement of the game's world. The player can also make such decisions as setting forms of government, tax rates and research priorities. The player's civilization is in competition with other computer-controlled civilizations, with which the player can enter diplomatic relationships that can either end in alliances or lead to war.

    @bittersweet "Levity" isn't a valid reason for content...WP:UNDUE is just the beginning there. We are commanded to be on-topic in general, and especially for image-use. There is something on-topic to be said about cats and toilet paper (one of the items in the Arguments section), but as SchuminWeb says, "the orientation is not evident, and the roll is pretty shredded." The whole point of this article is orientation, so if there's no evidence what the orientation is or how the cats are behaving in relation to it, it's off-topic.

    @wiki Dual Quaternions
  • 1
    @bittersweet In mathematics, the dual quaternions are an 8-dimensional real algebra isomorphic to the tensor product of the quaternions and the dual numbers. Thus, they may be constructed in the same way as the quaternions, except using dual numbers instead of real numbers as coefficients. A dual quaternion can be represented in the form A + εB, where A and B are ordinary quaternions and ε is the dual unit, which satisfies ε = 0 and commutes with every element of the algebra.
    Unlike quaternions, the dual quaternions do not form a division algebra.

In 2001, Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry determined that the average color of the universe was a greenish white, but they soon corrected their analysis in a 2002 paper in which they reported that their survey of the light from over 200,000 galaxies averaged to a slightly beigeish white. The hex triplet value for cosmic latte is #FFF8E7.

Such a program is very simple in most programming languages, and is often used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language. It is often the first program written by people learning to code. It can also be used as a sanity test to make sure that a computer language is correctly installed, and that the operator understands how to use it.
