I'm attending a one-year training in COBOL. So far, I've seen these alarming signs of varying importance:

*There is these mandatory exercises. But you can pass a course despite not having made them all. The general modus seems to be dragging people trough the education so that they can get their tax money at the end of the spring semester.

*There is no paper towels in the dining room nor the toilets. Despite our complaints.

*We had a week with a horrible sales pitch with a representative from IBM. z/OS and stuff. He was knowledgeable, but he was the worst teacher ever. And of course a few megabrains did catch everything he said. But not the most of us.

*This education will be crowned with a 2-month period of an internship. But the school had only some 15-20 places earmarked for us. Then a few places disappeared, because one of the banks has decided to move all the COBOL-development to Balticum. Then a few places will be taken by children to people working at these banks.

*Applying for internship will be as if you was applying for a real job. So the last week before christmas there was this little course on how to promote ourselves. One of the panaceas suggested was LinkedIn, yeah THAT LinkedIn, THAT spam-engine.

So what do you think? Am I only training for unemployment?

There's supposedly a lot of legacy COBOL code that isn't going anywhere. Get in touch with someone who works where you want to work, then get a job there.

For now, COBOL is very sought-after, because lots of shit is programmed in COBOL, and the old geezers who are proficient in it are dying out. So for a decade or so, I'd say you're set.

I strongly suggest you learn some more modern programming languages though, too.

although this exam is in Spanish and in java it should be about the same in some programming languages. here Google translate is your friend. Good luck. serves as a good learning tool (collage exam unit 3) . (theme inheritance)

Java, C# or F# for my new project?

It's a small project but not too small. I master none of them but can put my shit together pretty well with Java. Anyways I don't mind learning a new language, will be the first one in years (not counting interpreted ones) which is always a good thing.

Also, is Visual Studio + Blend a good thing or a bad thing?

Well, as I said it's a small project so it does what basic programs do: it takes information out of databases, make not too complex operations with them, needs extensive external input but for a few sources and peripherals, update databases, create new ones, use some files too to store certain kind of info (mostly current user configurations and states) and uses a big enough GUI.

Nothing special.

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 15/03/23(Mon)20:02 No. 4719

C# might be easiest way. Easy GUI editor,friendly dataset,
you can use WPF for GUI, microsoft will support this at least 10 years or more after win10

Now that's something useful.

Finally I've decided to delay at least a week the writing of the first line of code because my interest on F# has grew enough to take a step in.

I'll probably do as you said, anyways, and make it in C#, which seems much more reliable known that I can already code Java.

But F# really tickled my apetite for learning something new and that's something uncanny since... lots of time.

As for WPF, thanks, I was looking for something Blend and didn't know where to start. All this shit gets rusty fucking fast.

Sadly, Yes this is true. They have fully cracked the Tor network and now using reverse machanics to get users that are using tor network for hitman, drug traffic, child porn, etc. The best example would be Silk Road how in no time after the arrest of its owner it relaunched.. in reality.. it was a trap being runned by a high lv agentcy we are thinking CIA cause it has there stank all over it.. but we are still unsure, but since its relaunch many silkroad members has secretly been getting arrested... ---GHØST(Anonymous)

>>4425 not sure if idiot or troll. anyway, there are other darknets so just use those if you think tor is compromised.

The problem is that it's easy to uncover yourself through your browsing habits when using TOR if you don't know what you're doing.
Was this video by a fat screaming Texan, by any chance?

Hey guys,

I am trying to make a sequention diagram out of my class diagram.

I have never made a sequention diagram, all I know is that I am working in the wrong order.


This is what I currently have, do you guys have any pointers and or tips on how to progress.

I have 2 players, playing a game of 4 in a row against eacht. I have a reactToDoTurn() but I dont know how to place it in my diagram, do I have to make 2 seperate questions, or just 1 as player1 and 2 are the same object.

That looks more like a class diagram rather than a sequence diagram.

I don't really know UML (i know nothing of it) but from the look of it there isn't too much to know - its basically a flowchart

In this case I think every class would be set side by side, below them would be a stem - you would draw on the stem the flow the program would make. probably labelled with each function call.

I'm not entirely sure, that's just an 'at a glance' observation

you realize RedHat has earned the right to direct kernel development right?

They've been a player in it for a long time, and we'd be decades behind otherwise

regardless, most people i find complaining, have no idea how it even works. Lennart might be a cunt, but christ. people send death threats to this guy. Often you'll see "PID1!!" usually followed by stuttering when asked why its a big deal how sysd implements it.

Its honestly a step torwards standardizing, so people can actually write software for linux.

its still completely foss, openRC exists, you can still use sysv,

maybe someday Linux will get a good debugger

Slackware still has the BSD init scripts. If someone could make the package management better, it would probably be more useful.

Sup /pr/.
In the image is a program for adding 400 to a variable and one for adding 2b to a variable. The one for the bottom adds 2000000000. This is with 32 bit ARM, so the bottom add needs to do extra work to add the larger number (op codes and registers take up some of the 32 bits for the instruction, so it needs to load the 32 bit number into a register and add the registers together instead of just adding like the add r3, r3, #400 instruction). If I have a 64 bit processor and a 32 bit operating system, can I make a compiler that uses the 64 bit word size to add for both of these programs in just the one assembly instruction or does the OS limit itself to 32 bit words?

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 15/02/13(Fri)00:06 No. 4691

You can compile it, but unless ARM does some magic Intel doesn't you won't be able to run the program.
Every time the running thread changes the OS saves the registers in memory (as they will be used by the next thread). A 32-bit OS only needs to save the 32-bit registers. To make sure, you could test it in QEMU.
Disclaimer: I don't have much experience with ARM.

I was mostly thinking Intel since I don't have anything that's 64 bit ARM. I'm not sure how Intel does the machine code yet since they do some kind of variable length instruction magic. I guess my idea works better with fixed length instructions though, maybe there are some instructions for Intel that can use it, I'll try to find that out eventually.

I was wondering if anyone can give me insight on how to add the Zbar QR scanner into my Xcode. I have searched all over the place and I have only found tutorials on how to do it on older versions (Objective-C) Any help is greatly appreciated!
