Current OS is openSUSE Tumbleweed, but I'll give you my Windows installation DVD if you want that smiley
I can also just install Windows for you.

I have used this laptop since February this year, and I want to get a gaming PC, so I'm selling it.
There is one known fault: the ALT key on the left side of the SPACE key has stopped working. Everything else is fine.
I'm currently in Port Harcourt, hook me up via WhatsApp if you're interested. 08094369715.

Foreign Affairs / Re: President Kim Jung Un Return Remains Of U.S. Servicemen Killed In Korea War(Pics by Craigston: 3:32pm On Jul 28, 2018
In a sleight of hand, Kim sets the stage the deadliest pandemic in recent history to unfold in America. The health budget of the nation is strained fighting this pandemic; the nation is weakened, and North Korea goes to war with America, quickly achieving victory, leaving the world in utter amazement, shock, and disbelief.

Hey Craigston, been a while...
I'd create a slack channel instead... How does that sound? I actually need to talk to every applicant myself and make sure they're fit and see the big picture, even bots get past Google forms these days.

Slack is preferable. You have my email. I can talk there too. I'm interested.

Programming / Re: 2017 Generation Of Programmers - What Languages Are You Using? by Craigston: 7:07am On Aug 01, 2017
I'm onto Go now. I'm still hacking C++ and C, and I got a taste of Java last semester but I dislike it.
I'll be learning Go, JavaScript, PHP 7, C++, C. I'm suspending D for now.
There are others on the list, but these are the ones I will get busy with first.

These days to be frank I don't have a language it's anyone I have to pick to do a task recently am working on a Spring Application and I've never done that so took my time to learn Spring , a bit of Servlet and all. However it is Golang that's on my mind , that and continuation of my C++ ( algorithm learning)
Go is a beautiful language. It seems weird at first if you've sold your soul to Java's OOP style, but it also supports OOP nicely (preferring composition to inheritance). I'm learning web development with Go now (https://www.usegolang.com/), and it's fun.

if yhur looking code neatness your better off learning any functional programming language, it syntax on its own is pure neatness and summery.

am more of an efficiency programmer, than a neat one, I go for code cleanup after finishing the job.

team playing has a totally different ethics than solo ninja programming.
@ the bold text.
Please, can I know what you mean by symmetry as regards syntax? It is likely the first time I am seeing that expression in the context of programming language syntax.

Na Debian I dey comfortable with. I don try all of them but I always end up installing Debian.

Ubuntu - bloat. Unity is ugly

Arch Linux - breaks every time

Fedora - I no just like their package manager

Opensus -no even try am. Waste of time
Did you say OpenSUSE is a waste of time? I was considering it for my next OS, especially their rolling release (tumbleweed).
Fedora is also on my mind. Their package manager is now improved, and they have a new one (dnf) which works great.

airsaylongcon:
This one is deep. Old school Pascal programming.

var a, b, c :integer;
read (c) ;
a:=1;
b:=1;
while a <10 do
begin
b=b*a;
a=a+1;
If a = c then exit
end


For the fragment of code above, which of the following statements about variables a and b must be true after execution of the fragment?

A) (b=(c-1)!) AND (a>=c)
B) (b=9!) AND (a=10)
C) (b=10!) AND (a=10)
D) ((b=10!) AND (a=10)) OR ((b=(c-1)!) AND (a=c))
E) ((b=9!) AND (a>=10)) OR ((b=(c-1)!) AND (a=c))

The answer is E.
If the loop runs until the first a < 10, we cannot compute a b *= 10, but we must have done that from a = {1, 2, ..., 9}. At that point, a >= 10 is true after the last iteration.
Similarly, we introduced a second termination condition that brings the iteration count closer, at a = c. This condition will be reached only if the integer read into c is less than 10. The same procedure above applies, with the range of a being
{a: 1 <= a < c}

during the execution of the loop's body. Then b = (c -1)! Is true after the loop exits, since a = c terminates the loop, just after a become equal to c.

Meta key works absolutely fine on my KDE Neon.

On the heavyness of KDE i think its still a myth that people talk about and I am yet to see a video that really brings this point to life. I have been using Kubuntu since 12.06 and now KDE Neon and I dont see how their memory usage differs from Ubuntu and non KDE distros. I will trully like to see a video where someone really illustrate this idea that KDE is heavy because you are not the first to say this.
A video can be faked, so go get some first-person experience. Install a window manager, install Xfce, then run user sessions in them. Compare the memory usage of each one from 'top'.
Why do I have to install mysql-server to use KDE (from Kubuntu-desktop)?
While starting a KDE session on my machine, the task bar icons show a visible delay in getting arranged.

DanielTheGeek:


I decided to share this publicly rather than mailing you so other people interested in making donations can read.

The plan:
Friendosphere was built with simplicity and UX in mind, Friendosphere is not meant to compete with other forum sites or QA sites like Quora, it's a unique QA site for devs. Before the site went down I had over 1,000 users registered under the first month it was launched. I plan to advertise friendosphere on various platforms and also generate revenue by placing ads on the site. There are many more features that will be added including web services in the future.
If there is anything you want to know, please ask.
I wish you can generate revenue in some other way that's better than ads. Or try to make your ads precise and relevant to what the user is reading, also ensuring it doesn't worsen the performance of the site on the client side.
I personally would pay for a decent service than what web advertising is now.
Kudos for prioritizing simplicity: I enjoyed the UI while it was up.

I'm not surprised. I intended to join the Nigerian Navy, or either the Airforce or the Army, but now I'm reluctant.
If there's a way, I'll like to join the Mossad instead.

Nigerian politicians lack foresight!! nut hugging and butt licking set of humans!!..
North Korea once offered us missile/rocket technology on a platter of gold but we declined the offer!!
I'm sure they'll be willing to sell now, but we won't want to piss off Trump. NK is eager to nuke the US; we'd be making it faster should we have any strong economic relationship with them.
One thing we can learn from them is that it's not too late to start. We're suffering of the negligence of our ancestors; our descendants should not suffer the cumulative effect that includes ours too.

Seriously tho, I doubt if i have ever verified the checksum of a downloaded file, think the only time i did that is once when figuring out what checksums are/how they work, then never again embarassed
Exactly. I only verified an ISO file (I can't remember which one) when I was trying to understand what checksums are. Although it's important, who really does it?

Computer: Hey, you've played this game for four hours now; you've forgotten that ebook you opened earlier.

Me: uh... I still have some time; just one more round.

[Two hours later]

Computer: You're still here? You have an 8:00 AM class today. Go have some sleep.

Me: It's already 3:05 AM; I'll just keep on till dawn, and sleep in the afternoon.

Computer: You'll get yourself in trouble one of these days; you keep trolling people online.

Me: uh, no. It's just on this site: they're not real people, no real IDs.

Computer: You've not confirmed the checksum on that file. Be careful...

Me: (cutting in) Nobody ever does that. It's normal.

Computer: This software looks pirated; why not buy a licensed copy from...

Me: (cutting in) Forget it! I've been doing this since I was 12.

Computer: You should comment that part of the code properly. It's where most of the work happens.

Me: My code is self-documenting. And I'll stay on the job more if nobody understands how my code works.

The whole thing is confusing i like some features of Perl 6, like the changes made to array-accessing/indexing, but mehn too many big changes to the language syntax its unnerving, Its almost like a totally new language
It is a totally new language. It's just not gaining traction. I'm not sure learning it will be a good investment, especially since it's targeting an already dominated niche.

Are you keeping tabs on Perl 6 development? I tried to but it seems the language won't see stronger support again. But the huge number of packages available in CPAN is still a blessing.
