I couldn't be the only one who thought of teaching ape how to make fire using stone and releasing them into the wild to accelerate their evolution.
Think about having non-human conversation partner we can debate with. The new kind of view they will bring to existing and future due to their sense (different from us)
And then I remember they will likely be bully due to species-sim because we cannot even solve our racism issue. Maybe it will solve the racism issue or spread more fire due to their presence.2
I had been waiting for a hour to finish compiling and it show me the output above.
By looking at the prototypes and technical ideas which I fail to implements due to various reason , I got an idea.
I got an idea to have a kind of grave yard where people can bury their fail prototype and technical ideas and other people can dug them for inspiration or profits.
As the saying goes "One man trash is another man treasure."
I hope this idea of making a grave yard will not be "an actual fail idea"5
Is sleeping on your desk an actual thing which happen or it is a misconception provided by movies?
I have never slept on my desk no matter how tired I am (I had done a week coding marathon) .I always wrap myself with fluffy blanket when sleeping.14
Sometime I want to name a library "ABC" or "XYZ" just to make a heck out of it.And make it popular enough just for confusion. So they will be like the "ABC" here , is that a placeholder or a library name?6
A person who just starting out ask me about git.
I explain what is "init" , "remote" , "add" , "committing" everything was going well until vim happen.
I just refer him to some beginner friendly tutorial about git and give him a link to git client tool.
How do you guy learn about git? When I stop to think about it git have lot of features.9
I am interested in how you guy discover devrant.
Does someone refer devrant to you or does your feeling explode and you finally found devrant?
As for me someone posted a link on Discord.22
I decided to delete Apache Zookeeper on my Windows system but I cannot delete
It should be easy to delete but Windows said it cannot delete the file. I try to delete using command prompt but it said access denied.14
I been doing a online course and they provide a exercise to do in Jupyter notebook.
I notice that the exercise they wanted us to do this time is too complex. After finishing the exercise I submit it for review.
I thought I am doing an exercise but I had actually done an assignment and submit it :(
Lucky I pass that assignment. It is the worst misunderstanding I have done during my student life.
I been seeing spam on devrant lately. It is usually a new account which only have 1 rant (a spam)
Maybe devrant should include some kind of "Are you a developer captcha" which make you fix a bug before creating an account.19
Coding is like drinking.If you code too much you get muscle pain (hangover) the next day.
I am having a muscle pain but I still want to code.19
I notice something in the news network.
They can be either bias or don't take a stance.
For some topic their reporting is very bias. Only giving a single point of view and just use facts to confirm it. I call it being bias.
For topic which they can be criticize for taking either side they use the so called "expert discussion"
They gather various expert and discuss about the topics.
Start = Undecided
End = Still undecided with a lot of confusions.
Some people will call it Democratic news channel , Republican news channel. They are wrong. There is only 1 news channel since they are all the same.
I am losing trust on the news channel (which I should not be feeling)
Do you guy feel the same?4
Today I fought against a monster named as CSS and I sort of won.
I am having a problem in that the grid layout don't work with the scroll bar (overflow)
After hours of trying thing out I remember that I am just creating the prove of concept that the system can actually be build.
I said "Hey this is just a prototype, it doesn't need to be pixel perfect, and finally use height in css".
I really appreciate it if anyone can advise me on less dirty method. Here is the source code
The input box should stay at the button no matter how much text the container have. The fiddle have the intended behavior.5
Do you guy know that there is a lot of short query name like "f" in web development?
We are discourage from using single character variable name and the query key is too short. Is there any specific reason for using short query name?7
Is there is an extension in VSCode where the ";" is added (when needed) if the file extension is for the programming language which support ";" ?
I been switching back and forth from the python and C++ and my sub-conscious is killing me.
Now it's a C++ I need a ";" , moment later I am coding in python and python don't need ";" .2
Wired's ads to subscribe cover half the page and get annoying so I use the only super power I have to get rid of it.
Good bye "paywall-bar paywall-bar--visible"1
Why do humanity collect things that they will never use? More importantly why do I have many ebook that I will never read?5
Is there a file manager which let me manage all my cloud drive , local drive , network drive in one place?3
I know it a strange thing to ask but I need help with English grammar ( I am not a English native)
I am doing an assignment on context free grammar program.
What the program need to do it "Produce a grammar tree based on the rule"
For example a sentence "Jame sat.", It will need to produce a grammar tree like this.
The only thing I need to do it give a grammar rule to the program like this
S -> NP VP
NP -> N | Det N
VP -> V | NP
What the above rule said is that the sentence is composed of Noun Phrase and Verb Phrase and Noun Phrase is either is a Noun or a determiner and Noun.
Now here is the meat of the question.
I am having trouble parsing a grammar tree for this sentence "She never said a word until we were at the door here"
I have provided my grammar rule below. I think I forget to add some grammar rule or some of my grammar rule are incorrect. I am not a native English speaker so I am having trouble on it.
The search engine have fail me (I have look up various grammar tree) so I am asking for help on devrant. Grammar nazi are warmly welcome :)
S -> NP VP | S Conj VP | S Conj S
NP -> N | Det NP | N PP | Adj N | Det Adj N | Det N
PP | Det NOM | Det N PP
VP -> V | V NP | V NP PP | V PP | V NP PP Adv
VP -> Adv V NP | VP PP | VP AVP | V PP PP | V
PP -> P NP
AVP -> Adv | Adv Adj | Adv AVP
NOM -> Adj Adj N | Adj N | Adj NP
ADJP -> Adj | Adj PP
**I am not sure about these two clause below**
VP -> V | Adv
NP -> Adj Adj N40
When you test on production server
"Your system folder path does not appear to be set correctly. Please open the following file and correct this: index.php"1
I have the misfortune of reading the source code that there are comment on who change what line of code at "actual source file" instead of just using version control.2
I been teaching someone python for a few day with 2-3 hour each day. It has been very pleasant to teach him programming since he have a goal in mind. He already know what kind of program we wanted to build.
He is a novice and not familiar with programming. It have been a good chance to see how the novice look at the python. I been given a chance to ask the answer like
"Why do we throw exception?" ,
"Why do we put define function at the top of the file and not at __main__?"
"Why do I need to use constructor?" ,
"Why should I call parent constructor in the child constructor?"
Here is the main question.
I have been wondering "should I teach him multi inheritance and the diamond problem?" I haven't been using multi inheritance for a while other than the exercise I done when I started programming and cannot think of the situation to use multi inheritance. I know in other language we use multi inheritance (kind of) regularly by extending multiple interface. I wanted to ask if multi inheritance is common in python.
Another question I have is how should I introduce him to gui programming in a simple manner? I am thinking of introduction him to the gui framework which haved WYSIWYG editor like "Remi"10
I been looking at the job listing at my country and I can only found the job for web.
What happen to the quality desktop application development?44
