Then I look at the nature of the problem. What kind of curveballs might pop up? In basic English, what approaches can I take to solve it?

2017-09-02 03:34:55 UTC

then I look at my knowledge set and see if I have the tools to tackle it. If not, I do some research to see if there's something I can add to my repertoire. The bad news is that "technology" as a field is growing impossibly fast and it's a big struggle to keep up-to-date

2017-09-02 03:35:23 UTC

The good news is that once you reach a certain extent of knowledge, picking up new stuff becomes much, much easier

2017-09-02 03:36:21 UTC

So, personally, if I'm making an open-ended CRUD webapp, I'll typically go with Python's Flask web framework and a relational database.

2017-09-02 03:37:03 UTC

I'll step up to Postgres if I need to use the JSON capability, if it's going to be heavy-duty, and/or if I'm going to need to do anything geospatial. If it's simple I'll stick with MySQL.

2017-09-02 03:38:00 UTC

If it's a webapp that's going to be simple and novel I'll probably explore using a NodeJS-based solution with document storage

2017-09-02 03:39:01 UTC

If it's a Windows desktop app, I'll probably consider C# first, though I'm starting to like the idea of using Electron (a nodeJS framework for building cross-platform desktop apps)

2017-09-02 03:39:23 UTC

C# is a beautiful language, but the best characterization I've heard of it is "a laser rifle strapped to a donkey"

2017-09-02 03:39:34 UTC

it's not very useful outside of a windows context

2017-09-02 03:40:03 UTC

If it's a basic-bitch linux command-line program, I'll probably go with Python

2017-09-02 03:40:23 UTC

But I've written some stuff in NodeJS, especially if launching other processes is involved.

2017-09-02 03:40:36 UTC


2017-09-02 03:40:45 UTC


2017-09-02 03:42:59 UTC

Where does C++ fit into all this?

2017-09-02 03:43:12 UTC

I don't personally use it.

2017-09-02 03:43:34 UTC

@Deleted User Do you understand the concept of low- and high-level languages?

2017-09-02 03:53:13 UTC

Maybe? What is Haskell? High or low? Is Assembly a language or...?

2017-09-02 03:56:01 UTC

Assembly is a language

2017-09-02 03:56:06 UTC

it's as low-level as you can get

2017-09-02 03:56:20 UTC

So basically everything boils down to processor instructions

2017-09-02 03:56:48 UTC

The closer you are to writing processor instructions, the more "low-level" you are

2017-09-02 03:57:14 UTC

Basic or Qbasic?

2017-09-02 03:57:15 UTC

so a language like Python is very high-level. You're far away from dealing in processor instructions. You don't have to manage memory

2017-09-02 03:57:29 UTC

basic is lower-level than something like C# or Python

2017-09-02 03:57:41 UTC

but in its time it was pretty high-level

2017-09-02 03:57:41 UTC

that feels right re Basic...

2017-09-02 03:57:53 UTC

and C?

2017-09-02 03:58:25 UTC

much lower level than most languages

2017-09-02 03:58:32 UTC

you have to manage memory in C

2017-09-02 03:58:58 UTC

Why do you think Linus Torvalds chooses C with all it's faults vs C++ or some other language?

2017-09-02 03:59:11 UTC

The tradeoff is that C is very fast and can run in a great number of environments

2017-09-02 03:59:17 UTC

Nothing wrong with C, really

2017-09-02 03:59:21 UTC

just tradeoffs

2017-09-02 04:00:18 UTC

Have you ever used rundeck or something like docker?

2017-09-02 04:00:44 UTC

I've messed around with Docker, but haven't yet found the opportunity to use it in practice

2017-09-02 04:00:52 UTC

it's a very cool concept. do you have any basic questions about it?

2017-09-02 04:02:31 UTC

@Deleted User: Thanks for posting this. Using CoinBase, I might have contributed to the legal fund of certain Alt-Right defendant(s) -none of whom are convicted of anything! Mysteriously, I got a message from Uber that I was not supposed to use thier services for anti-Dieversity efforts. And then I got a message from Coinbase that I was being suspended, with zero reason given. For a process that is supposed to be untraceable and confidential, and LEGAL, I was astounded how our civil rights are erroded by the coorporate oligarchs that effectively rule ZOG.

2017-09-02 04:02:59 UTC

No tbh my main curiosity is what people outside my normal sphere are using and how. I find it useful to see these utilities from a different perspective and how I can go about things differently.

2017-09-02 04:03:19 UTC

@CharlesLaurence -CA they specifically said "anti-diversity"?

2017-09-02 04:03:52 UTC

I forget exactly, but essentially YES.

2017-09-02 04:04:12 UTC

@Placidseven - MO That's one of the best ways to learn once you're actively developing. How about you? What do you use and how do you approach problem-solving?

2017-09-02 04:04:20 UTC

@CharlesLaurence -CA good grief. insanity.

2017-09-02 04:04:37 UTC

I told them the only persons who are getting discriminated agains are Christian Bakers. It went to a dead-link email

2017-09-02 04:04:48 UTC

@CharlesLaurence -CA out of curiosity, why did you choose to use coinbase instead of managing your own wallet?

2017-09-02 04:04:52 UTC

of courrrrrrse

2017-09-02 04:08:43 UTC

It was my first time buying bitcoin, and everywhere I looked it said I needed a wallet.

2017-09-02 04:09:17 UTC

I have several books on Bitcoin and blockchain. Would you be interested in them?

2017-09-02 04:09:25 UTC

One is a "getting started" book

2017-09-02 04:10:44 UTC

Currently I use mostly php and python w/ sql db. We have a rather large portal web app with redundant servers and sql databases. The portal also uses JavaScript which I haven't delve into yet.
I am developing tools for the web app. I am currently teaching myself node.js in favor of it's multitasking ability and mongodb for its ability to create data structure on the fly. Which will work nicely once I start working on the api.

2017-09-02 04:11:35 UTC

Would you like a NodeJS book that was immensely useful for me when I was learning?

2017-09-02 04:11:57 UTC

Yeah what's it called?

2017-09-02 04:12:15 UTC

NodeJS the right way

2017-09-02 04:12:29 UTC

thanks I'll check it out

2017-09-02 04:12:44 UTC

I will mail it to you. PM incoming

2017-09-02 04:12:55 UTC


2017-09-02 04:13:20 UTC

I thought you meant give me the name of the book... not a physical copy

2017-09-02 04:17:11 UTC

@AshBrighton-AL, No thanks on the books. I'm gonna just send cash in the mail Never a problem with that, and you never get shoa'd .

2017-09-02 04:17:33 UTC


2017-09-02 04:18:09 UTC

just FYI though, you don't need a third-party to handle your wallet. You can do it entirely on your own and that will prevent you from getting blacklisted for the most part

2017-09-02 04:20:28 UTC

It was an enlightening experience to get shoa'd for such a trivial exercise of rights. And I have only ever used Uber like once this year. How they though I was in Charlotteville or whatever is beyond me. The point is, Google holds all the data, they hate thought criminals, and we need to be mindful that they hate us.

2017-09-02 04:21:45 UTC

absolutely. your story is probably the most egregious example of cross-platform clampdown that I'm aware of

2017-09-02 04:28:15 UTC

I need to look into managing my own wallet. I was looking to start investing some of what I've been putting in my IRA into crypto.

2017-09-02 04:28:58 UTC

@CharlesLaurence -CA thanks for the heads up.

2017-09-02 04:36:49 UTC

Is there a wallet for the alt-right? Or that is alt-right recommended?

2017-09-02 04:37:49 UTC

Technically a "wallet" is its own entity. It's integral to the bitcoin concept. There doesn't have to be a third party involved.

2017-09-02 04:38:40 UTC

I'm going to PM you a book that explains it nicely.

2017-09-02 04:39:13 UTC

@Deleted User Thanks. Looking to get some coin

2017-09-02 04:48:00 UTC

I guess this would be under techie stuff, anybody here a ham radio operator. I'd like to get in to it, but i am electronically retarded.

2017-09-03 02:44:12 UTC

I'm taking tutorial/explanation requests. Hit me.

2017-09-03 13:07:31 UTC

Openvpn for a secure connection when connected to public wifi and managing/accessing local network remotely.

2017-09-03 13:08:42 UTC

Not sure if that's to basic.... trying to think of things that will be useful to a wider audience @Deleted User

2017-09-03 15:38:00 UTC

@CharlesLaurence -CA#4176 I just use Coinbase to buy and sell, after you buy just move it to a private wallet and go from there. makes a good wallet. You don't have to sync the blockchain, and you have your private keys. If you don't have private keys you don't really have your coins.

2017-09-03 15:43:14 UTC

@Deleted User that'd be a good tutorial. Setting up a private wallet.

2017-09-03 16:35:00 UTC

So keeping your private keys in a USB is best? How to secure those

2017-09-03 18:44:04 UTC

Encrypt it for sure

2017-09-04 00:16:32 UTC

@dog0fwar you should always write down your private key and keep it in a safe place. Probably millions of $ worth of BTC are gone forever because wallet holders didn't physically record their keys.

2017-09-04 19:18:04 UTC


2017-09-06 03:47:28 UTC

Yeah man. Between boneheaded mistakes and people dying without proper planning/communication, it's almost certainly on the order of millions given the current value of BTC.

2017-09-07 04:04:57 UTC

Any other good free places online to learn js, besides code academy?

2017-09-07 04:05:31 UTC

Hope this doesn't sound condescending, but have you tried your browser console?

2017-09-07 04:05:56 UTC

How would you classify your current level of knowledge? That will help me steer you.

2017-09-07 04:10:09 UTC

I gotta go pretty soon, but I'd recommend this as a good starting point if you're new to the language:

2017-09-07 04:10:21 UTC

I can also provide a bunch of books. PM me if you want 'em

2017-09-07 05:02:58 UTC

Thanks @Deleted User I'll check out the link.

2017-09-07 05:04:53 UTC

I did some html back in the day and built a few noob tier websites. My job wants me to learn js to help with building out a ticketing system.

2017-09-07 05:05:39 UTC

Do you suggest that I learn css before trying js, as the link directs?

2017-09-07 17:13:43 UTC

You can safely learn them in parallel

2017-09-07 17:14:28 UTC

CSS is for styling. The main overlap between CSS and JS is the concept of selectors, so there will be some mutual reinforcement there.

2017-09-07 17:15:27 UTC

Also, there are some great free ticketing systems out there. If you're curious let me know and i'll be glad to give more information. you might score some points by suggesting something turnkey that will save lots of time.

2017-09-08 03:37:59 UTC

We already have a system, just building it out further.

2017-09-08 03:38:53 UTC

Ah OK, didn't know if "building out" meant you had something already functional in-place. AMA as you're working and learning.

2017-09-09 09:17:04 UTC

Any advice for choosing a niche for affiliate marketing ? I'm trying to create some residual income so I can free up my time.

2017-09-12 00:37:04 UTC

Can anyone here do Wordpress?

2017-09-12 02:40:36 UTC

@Deleted User Dunno if you saw my message in VFP, but you can PM me. I can do what you're asking.

2017-09-12 02:41:01 UTC
2017-09-12 06:05:18 UTC

Can someone PM what's the current status of torrenting? I used to be a member on a bunch of private trackers but stopped watching TV, had no interesting in it and the sites died eventually. Now I'm looking for a few things and don't know where to go.

2017-09-12 13:18:23 UTC

@Deleted User the pirate bay

2017-09-16 16:14:47 UTC

@Deleted User look into bit che. And always VPN

2017-09-16 23:50:54 UTC

@Deleted User Hey thanks for the info on VPN in lessons. Do recommend using if your just cruising TRS, Altright, etc. I'm obviously not doing anything illegal and I this point probably liked my IP to every right wing site out there. Just wondering how concerned one should be. I'm only a semi literate gen Xer.

2017-09-16 23:52:41 UTC

And I'm only speaking for my personal devices mobile and home. Would never visit DS at work
