20:39 saml does Controller in  MVC know about HTTP?
20:40 whartung it can, sure. It’s a question of whether you expose HTTP details trhough the request to the controller.

22:49 pdurbin whartung: what was your answer going to be for the lossy question?
22:54 whartung “yes”
22:55 whartung For example, JPEG
22:55 pdurbin heh. me too. it's a representation
22:55 whartung si
22:56 whartung https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7846900/rest-api-having-same-object-but-light
23:01 pdurbin nice answer
23:03 pdurbin I kind of hate stack exchange sometimes. When people delete my question: https://i.imgur.com/8h5tWla.png
23:09 whartung heh yea
23:09 whartung since Apple doesn’t say anything and “nobody knows”, it’s “opinion based”
23:10 whartung Raymond didn’t agree with me
23:10 whartung and thx for the upvote
23:11 whartung > 90K rep now (!!)
23:19 pdurbin f Raymond
23:19 whartung :)
23:20 pdurbin whartung: do you feel like there's any sense of community on Stack Overflow? That you get to know people and like them?
23:20 whartung Me? no.
23:20 whartung It’s changed over the years, for sure. Early on there was a bit of one, with similar posters in the same topics.
23:21 pdurbin Ok. To me it feels like helpful strangers making drive bys.
23:22 whartung But I haven’t actively contributed much recently. Stuff moves pretty fast. Add an answer and 5 show up.
23:23 whartung There was a bit of a core in the “rest” topic, folks from irc and mailing lists.
23:23 whartung but that was back when rest meant something besides just http rpc
23:27 pdurbin yeah
23:30 whartung I mean, you start to recogniez folks, right? but since the site is so “techincal”, there’s no humantity on it. So, hard to really build a community of that — the only community is the OCD moderators and editors.
23:31 whartung you can’t “talk” to anyone, right? “discussion has been moved to chat”
23:31 whartung "fine"
23:31 whartung you can’t “talk to each other"
23:31 whartung you and the question in a vacuum
