    We used pascal
    Last time in school I was around 9 years ago. Huh, the time flies.

    Basic was offered as an option for graduating exams for computer science class
    (I remember there were four alternatives)
    (Basic, Pascal, Pseudo algorithm and.... something I don't remember)

    @YouAllSuck I am 27 years old.
    A year since graduating from uni. A year since dived into industry programming.

    I hope to believe I already passed the line and could be considered middle in skills. Or at least another half of year of work and continued marathon of self studies should my standing stronger.

    @YouAllSuck I guess. UI sucks.

    I reside in Discord as a main platform. It is much more comfortable place. Quite liking programming related societies there.

    @10Dev That is actually a really good mix.

    @YouAllSuck
    Scratch is a programming language where users drag and drop blocks in a GUI to make a program. It was developed by MIT well over 10 years ago now. It also has some extensions which allow it to program the Lego wedo stuff. Kids absolutely love it. No typos, no installation as it's browser based.
    As far as python goes I've been using it as a main language for the last few years and I think it's great.

    Btw could you imagine if someone started secretly paying people to install tor and a logger onto their comps ?

    Whoever believes that OPs utterances are not twenty years of crack cocaïne addiction infused "I want to be an influencer" lunatic rampage, might have a problem on their own.

    @scor I think trump did a good job as president and people just needed to give him a chance and that Biden is shaping up to be the most effective president since bush

    @AvatarOfKaine Thinks Biden is president. Interesting... Those drugs you take must be really good.

    @Demolishun I'm intrigued by that who do you think is president ? :P you're suggesting someone else is pulling the strings.

    If a candidate was the most popular candidate in history (more popular vote wise than Obama) why would you go to the extreme of impeaching the loser? Is the loser so dangerous to the republic?

    When that failed why would you try to pass legislation to remove the death penalty for treason? In the same month?

    There are fail-safes in the US Constitution that outlay legal remedies to follow if an insurrection occurs.

    The rest is a journey you will have to take. It doesn't really belong on this platform.
