In other news I had to do a test where I invited a bunch of first year students and let them solve assignments. A total of 3 people showed up. :cry2:
What kind of test? And what kind of assignments?

Re: catch up thread

Hi, all! Yeah, I'm doing alright! I'm 22 now (which also makes me 12 when I joined :o ) and close to being done with engineering school. I recently found out that photography is a passion I have, and thus I no longer have any money. I'm in a good place professionally though and things are looking up...

Re: Programming, computers, etc. [Serious]

How easy to use is it? It's pretty easy. You basically make elements, position them and assign callbacks. This is something I made today in ~3 hours and 280 lines for a little freelance thing, including algorithm research for maze generation and solving. It uses Tkinter's Canvas widget and a few bu...

Re: Programming, computers, etc. [Serious]

C and C++ are hard especially for beginners because you'll be tripping over stuff you don't need to understand yet. Java is okay but kind of complicated. Python is easy and fun to use, while still being very useful in real world. Programming is logic but still creative work. Best way to learn perman...

Re: Video Game Translation?

Not really a bad/good translation thing, but I always find it impressive how poor support for international languages is on Windows, sometimes. Case in point: fan-translated Japanese games usually require a hugely complicated installation that requires changing locale and sacrificing at least two bl...

Re: Programming, computers, etc. [Serious]

Yeah, I find git a bit impractical too. Like sometimes I'll edit some Python code in my IDE and then commit and push for convenience and pull in a remote server that's only accessible through SSH; then something comes up and I change a tiny bit of code from SSH through nano and forget to push that. ...

Have you heard about Cython? I never used it, but my impression is that it converts Python into C and then compiles into bytecode. Might be worth a look.

Re: Programming, computers, etc. [Serious]

Oh, I've been learning Python and it's fantastic for rapid development and simple scripts. There is a library/function for anything low-level you can think of, so you don't have to worry at all about that and it's really easy to get going. Most of these libraries are built-in, and the ones that aren...

Well, I'd suggest getting a cheap webcam or the Pi's camera and make a people counter or something like that. OpenCV is great and relatively easy to learn.

If you're confident in your translation abilities, and you still want to do it, I could recommend some translation agencies. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Re: Programming, computers, etc. [Serious]

I mean SSH itself. SSH is a remote shell, it pretty gives you a terminal that runs whatever on a remote machine. You access it through the machine's IP and one of its user's passwords. At least on the Raspberry Pi, it's enabled by default. Also it comes with a weak and widely known default password ...
