Out of curiosity, with the extent of your studies, what sorts of languages do you think will be the future of programming? Also, what's your level of concern as to whether AI will be writing most of the code by the early 2030's? On the later point, thinking of my own clients, I can't imagine these ...

Wikipedia has an article on the V sign (and the backwards rude version). It also shows a photo of Winston Churchill misusing V For Victory.

^ please completely ignore that last post. That guy is just weird - ignore him. (Ok, yes, it was me) I would not post anything on this or any other forum unless I would be comfortable seeing it published on the front page of the New York Times next to my full name and picture.

Haha! Seriously though. If you don't have family ties or committments, maybe try a different county or country as it is an expensive place to live with rules like that. I wonder if there are any other restrictions of what one can and can't do. For 20 years I was legally forbidden from moving more t...

Middle puzzles use a few different tricks. Basic puzzles you can usually do by looking for boxes (3x3) that can ...

We can't buy incandescent here anymore. I am sorry the LEDs give you headaches / issues. Halogen lights are actually incandescent. I have one in my shower because the LED and Compact Florissant kept shorting and burning out because of the steam getting in the works. The "outdoor halogen" ...

Kind of hard to do when you're on a fixed, disability income as a single parent, in a very expensive area during all these price hikes. I'm trapped here for the time being.

The rest of it yes, I agree with you.
