Re: Scared of Search

That's what I use when I don't want Google to inundate me with searches about things I'd rather not be inundated with.

It is going to get worse. What a stupid time to be alive.

From them to whom much is given, much is expected. If American-grown coffee wants to distinguish itself in terms of business practices, it should carry the union label or something. And very substandard if not Fair Trade certifiable.

I never looked into what qualifies for Fair Trade Certified, but when I found that Fair Trade Colombian (and later Honduran) coffees were not a contradiction in terms, I concluded that it's probably a pretty low bar. I hear they shoot trade unionists in Colombia.

Yeah, about the only thing that it lacks that I've seen is the .png export.

Spoopy! Going to have to take a run at TIC-80 someday. All the platforms & the license seem interesting vs Pico-8

Yes, but that's not what you said! :-p

Yeah, that's what I found when I disconnected from Twitter yesterday. Seemed the world was able to carry on without me commenting about it.

You do realize I can close the window and it still stays connected. :)

Disconnect from IRC more? Are you insane? ;-)

Networks never sleep, but you have to
Any post that is important enough will be commented on so you can pick up on it later.
Remember the person who at the time was really involved in social networks, he went to a place in the world with no Internet and was off line for three months. When he got back, he asked, "is there anything that was posted here in the last three months that I really need to know about?' He got no replies.

Thank you for coming out to join us this year! Always good to see the debugger in action. Have a safe trip back home.

Re: 100 day Programming Challenge

I can do this, although my code will most likely be Selinium tests in C# and Java. That is my current project. I know that I may miss 5 days of this in mid-June when I do a trip to Chicago, I will see if I can find any books or articles to bring with me to read so I can do my one hour per day during the trip.

You might like this one; I'm considering playing a bit with Clojure and functional programming. :)

Reminds me of your 6502 dive in. I'll play along!

Re: mismatch_cnt, RAID1, and a clever fix

Great stuff. I haven't had this issue - but I have been running raid5 - one more drive and (to me) you get both efficiency and speed.

OK, I'll play along.

$ node

> bar = ['width', 'height']

[ 'width', 'height' ]

> bar.indexOf['length']


> bar.indexOf('length')


> bar.indexOf

[Function: indexOf]

> foo = function () {return bar;}

[Function: foo]

> foo['length']



I'm not sure how you got a value of 1 for bar.indexOf['length']. I'm even less sure what that 1 means. I had no idea functions had a length property. But what does it represent? Number of parameters, maybe?

Alexa is the Amazon voice assistant for the Echo device. A skill is an application coded up to be a custom voice response. So, you would say something like 'Alexa, ask This Week in Tech for the news' which would then have a response of what is news in tech for the week.

devs can create their own skills.

Alexa is the nickname for the Amazon Echo "personality".

What's an "Alexa skill?" Is that about SEO skills? The only Alexa I know of is Alexa site rankings.
