Using text recognition software on website archives? Neckbearded Basement Dweller 20/12/05(Sat)17:31 No. 5435 [Reply]

Null of Kiwi Farms recently stated that he'll release archive of the site minus user data when section 230 is repealed, in torrent form. Does anyone have any advice on automating text recognition software on that archive so I can build a database of hashes for comparison to other sites?

I'd love nothing more than for every Kiwi Farms user to be doxed and sued into oblivion.

>Why would he do that? :-/
He said he'd do it so there'd still be archives of their work after he shuts the site down when/if section 230 is repealed.

Tony Robbins also said, 'You shouldn't trade time for money, you should trade money for money', which in our economy makes him a liar and a capitalist.

Typical dumb shit from someone who has money already, and whose time is valuable. Most of has have no money and our time is worthless, so we trade for it.

What programming language should I learn first?

I would say Java. Perfect middle ground between the convoluted nature of C/C++ and the intellectual laziness encouraged by something like Python.

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 21/01/12(Tue)05:17 No. 5446

Python, because it's easy and general purpose. Alternatives are Javascript because you can learn it on Khan Academy and it's really basic, and C, which is a lot more difficult than the previous two, but is the ancestor of many languages, also it runs fast.

Is there any service available that can just find me a damned software engineering position? After 13 weeks and 400+ application submissions, with less than a 5% response rate, I'm fucking tired of applying to almost every fucking posting out there.

I doubt a couple weeks would be nearly enough to gauge someone's ability. Even an experienced developer can take several weeks just to get acclimated to a project. What you suggest can be done, but it's a time frame closer to 1-3 months. This is a large commitment just to see if you want to hire someone on a permanent basis.
A possibility could be that the employee doesn't get paid during the probation period until after they're hired, when they get paid for that period. That would encourage employers to take more risks, but it would also open up the possibility of abusive behavior from scumbags. Maybe it could get mitigated with some kind of employer review service, but those are often problematic. It's difficult to tell truth from lies when there's a dispute between parties.

>Does all learning really need to be front-loaded so that everyone needs to make a massive investment into an industry they don't even know will want them when they're done studying?
On-the-job training is yet another issue of trust. Suppose you're an employer. How do you keep an employee from going to find a better job once you've trained them? A dismissive answer would be "pay them a competitive salary", but sometimes that's not enough, and if they do leave you not only have to expend extra effort to replace them, but now the effort you've already spent on training that person has gone to waste.

It's a mess, it's a big mess. As is usually the case, shitty people ruin it for everyone.

i gave up and enlisted in the navy with associates and some change after taking all the programming classes at my community college for 2 years.

got out after 4 years and did the same job for a contractor for 10x the pay, while also joining the reserves to accrue time towards a pension.

12 more years and i can retire with $40,000 a year pension, plus whatever VA disability i can claim (which is tax free).

ill take a dna ancestry test too see if i have enough ancestry to claim minority status. if i do, ill file for minority owned business contracts and get preferential treatment.

no chans, no prujeets, few women

python has better libraries and more secure environment i think, but its also less powerfull language, there is no popular language other than javascript that makes using high-order functions easier. Start with https://eloquentjavascript.net, most important chapter is about asynchrous programming. She should learn about async and events as soon as possible otherwise she will have bad time. Also she should learn high-order-functions and then she can learn react and start earning lot of money

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 20/10/27(Tue)01:28 No. 5425

IMHO, women tend to gravitate towards less rigorous areas like front-end web development because their brains are not as analytical as those of men, so something like C programming probably isn't a good fit for them. I would say let her learn Javascript. It can't hurt.

Nothing wrong with Javascript, my first language was some fucking Game Maker shit

All art is imitation friend
If you're just developing as a hobby, keep going.
If you're hoping to commercialise your project, then it's a bit trickier, and you might want to diverge from them. Or you can just make your game better than theirs, or have yours release first, or develop the community around it better.
The sad fact is you almost certainly won't make money from your game anyway, because virtually nobody does. If it's a hobby or portfolio thing, then ignore them and do what you want.

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 20/12/01(Tue)01:30 No. 5432

The way I see it, if your game is fun to play, then people will want to play it. Shit I thought the zombie genre was saturated to hell and back, but then 7 Days to Die comes out and everybody played it no problem
