I have been curious about Microsoft as they have support programs for those on the spectrum. Overall I want to make decent money to insulate myself from the general BS in the US. As far as creating a company, I have had a few ideas, but the code base for the one project I have been working on has be...

No problem with it, but I remember there was an experiment with couples who wanted to experiment with swinging and they said it was a good thing for their relationship but they would not try it again.It seems like if the people involved are mature enough it can work but it is hit or miss. Again none...

I remembering watching a documentary on Netscape where they contacted someone in (I think) Iowa and he kinda came off as autistic. He would contribute so much to the Netscape browser that they hired him. I know this was about 25 years ago or so, but I still get this impression that this is still pos...

Well I am half wonder if the path might be part of the issue, but that is just experience I have had personally. Also I do know that sometimes if you need to convert it to a string it can be a bit of an issue. One final thing, worse comes to worse , and assuming it is not too big, parsing the file a...

My next project CramCard. It will allow you to mix and match articles, books, and other writings into one cheat sheet or "CramCrad". This came from the issues I had with many books that had one good section on one thing but another book had a better section on another thing.

I was reading through the Principa Discordia forums and besides realizing it was half dead, I noticed something that made me a bit sad. People were going back and forth about Orange Man this Orange Man that. Now don't get me wrong I get that Trump was not the best president and deserves criticism. H...

So not one month in I got an offer for 30k more than I just paid for it. I might buy a 2 bedroom and 1031 exchange it to defer the taxes on it. I could then use the excess funds to buy another property, but outside my state. Still need to think it over, but for a tad more I can get a 2 bedroom and r...

I suppose a “hot,” real estate market is relative to its surrounding area, but when I see sub $1000 rents and $350k detached house prices I don’t consider it “hot.” But my perspective is skewed by living in one of The Hottest real estate markets on the face of the Earth. Things of skyrocketed throu...

What “hotter real estate market” has $700 studios & $350k houses? :? Lol definitely not here. Some studios rent for $1800-2100+/mo in some neighbourhoods. Cheap houses cost At Least $1M. $350k might buy you a condo in the very distant suburbs a 1.5h+ drive from downtown. Maybe. That’s why I’m p...

I thought OP was talking about the bash shell, which is also called a terminal. Poster above me is talking about the bash scripting language. OP needs to clarify the question. Did not think about that thank you! To harp on that, you don't need the console per se (I use Ubuntu and use apt-get or Goo...

I bought a house, but my dad is a handyman and a plumber and hvac by profession. I get tired doing anything with my hands, so DIY stuff I expected myself to do isn't happening. I would advise you not to live alone if you can, perhaps, very cautiously, you can live with an AS friend? With a condo, y...

I have been digging, and while there is still some gold, it is getting harder and harder to find good posts (at least in Google Groups). Do you have any Usenet groups you check up on that are still active? This is an area I am still researching.

Yes, forget about quick returns. You can't beat the professionals, who are experts at extracting money from people who want quick returns. But, if you have reasonable expectations, patience, and a strategy appropriate for your risk tolerance, you can get a good return over a long period of time (ov...

While I do have issues with Linux from time to time, I am glad I switched. Don't want to be part of the computer destroying borg.

Do realize to customize linux you don't need bash per se. You could try Python or C, although C is overkill in most cases.
