    Colleagues were just talking about it yesterday.

    • ozobot: A small robot that you can program through color codes (draw lines on paper)
    • Human Resource Maching: a visual programming-based puzzle video game developed by World of Goo creator.

          I merged the other story into this one. The other was earlier by a few hours, but I’d like to favor the primary source when it’s available.

          1. 1

            I am able to upvote my own comments which came here from the merged thread. This is probably a bug in the lobsters code base, is it not?

            EDIT: The UI makes it appear as if upvoting worked, but the score gets reset after a page reload.

            1. 1

              That sounds pretty weird, and it’s probably just not fetching your vote on the merged comments and a new vote will not add to your existing default upvote. Could you link one comment you’ve upvoted and one you haven’t, please?

                This is now tracked by an issue. Thanks for the nice repro, @mulander.

                1. 1

                  I tested on this one: https://lobste.rs/s/dwzplh/krack_attacks_breaking_wpa2#c_0klzsb

                  But as stated in my edit above, it appears to be a minor UI-only issue.

                  1. 1

                    I am able to reproduce this. I upvoted https://lobste.rs/s/xun2wv/severe_flaw_wpa2_protocol_leaves_wi_fi#c_0klzsb which I remember also upvoting in the unmerged thread. The counter went up and the arrow went read. Reloaded and it’s back down by one and allowing me to vote again.

                Or the other way around…

                  Eh, it’s the news post and this is the white paper’s site. I say leave them separate. This needs visibility.

                1. 2

                  Are you aware of the name conflict over osh binary being provided by OMake build system?

                  etsh was also know as osh a few month ago and change his name for the same reason

                  1. 1

                    Hm thanks for letting me know… I will take care not to use the same config file names.

                    I’m not sure about the binary name. I’m surprised that the etsh author changed it, because according to the OMake home page, there hasn’t been a release since 2010? I have actually read the OMake paper, but I wasn’t aware that it’s installed on many systems (and I didn’t know it had an osh binary).

                    1. 3

                      Debian will first-come-first-served you on the binary name (the same thing happened to node.js, to much wailing and gnashing of teeth, though to be fair to you, “osh” is far less obviously generic than “node”).

                          Strikingly similar! Their execution model is a little different, but the featureset is pretty close. Thanks for the link

                        1. 1

                          Does anyone know how to get Firefox to report the number of open tabs?

                            1. 8

                              Thank you. Now, like Inbox Zero, I have another number to feel bad about.

                            2. 1

                              try to close and it will tell you “are you sure you want to close 4000 tabs” or something like that?
