Anyone wanna do this one?

>Create a bash script that uses "rsync" command for backups and restores. The first argument should be either "backup" or "restore" and the second one is an optional argument specifying "realrun". The purpose of the "realrun" option is to avoid applying changes that won't be correct changes (without the option). If "realrun" is not set, use "--dry-run" option in rsync. Note that rsync supports huge number of different options. The most important ones are "--archive", "--relative", "--verbose", "--progress", "--human-readable", "--delete" for backup. Delete will cause changed not yet backed up to be lost. One option is to use the "--include-form" option for including only specific directories.

Just what is up with neural network? How do they work? How are they useful for a hobbyist? Isn't it just for huge data crunching and pattern detection and shit of the like?

What incentive is there to learn how to program them, and what are the easiest languages? What are the hardest? Where does C come into this?

Really curious because NN for some reason and everyone and their gran is on the hype train.

Basically, neural networks are good for complex problems for which there is no straightforward solution. they are an attempt to model the way the human brain works, with neurons and axons and such. you give them an input, and then using what is essentially a series of matrix vector multiplications, the neural network arrives at an output, or a set of outputs. there are a number of ways to 'train' a neural network, the two i see a lot are evolution and back propagation.

i suggest you check out the youtube channel 'carykh' if you like learning from videos at all, and they're also quite fun. but he's not really an expert. you should check out this online textbook also: http://neuralnetworksanddeeplearning.com/chap1.html

nah none of those

So I modded a cigar box to fit my kindle fire, then later added a small bluetooth keyboard and bam. instant laptop. It's the shit and I'm not ashamed of showing it off.

I got a BASIC programming app for it and it works great (a few minor bugs) and even came with some sweet code snippets and samples. However, I'm having trouble finding BASIC forums on the web. all I can find is VB shit and that's not going to help me.

specifically I'm having trouble with a do until loop with some if statments inside it.
for some reason the until doesnt register after the ifs. Can you use brackets\braces\parentheses? tried those a few ways and it wouldnt work

tldr:
BASIC (not VB) forums and such, where are they?

pic related. eyeball cover front cam. signet cigar box. removed mostof body but keptj bottom / top and clasp. hidden compartment under keyboard.

Basic is senseless on a modern machine imho.
If you are doing it for sports get a Sharp PC-U6000 or one of the even older models and use that. It's more fun when you are restricted by 32kb of program memory :-)

If you are on a android tablet with a bluetooth keyboard install Termux and you can run python, php and even c++, and you have a full on vim with plugins and stuff.

Also, although I haven't tried there's MSX basic, with a quite active scene around them. Seriously if you code basic you do it on a vintage machine or at least an emulator.
And you learn it by reading the Handbook, as they are very simple languages (Different variants of BASIC) which you can learn to grasp in their entirety which is quite something considering the complexity of modern languages.

OP here. got the programming on the kindle thing figured out.
but now I have a new problem

turning on bluetooth isn't difficult, but takes like 8 swipes\taps and that's 6 too many for me. in the BASIC app, the code to turn on Bluetooth is "BT.OPEN", then, if your bluetooth isn't on, you are asked permission to turn it on. Simple! only 2 taps. HOWEVER, I can't for the life of me find a way to open a text file directly from the homescreen. (Though if you open it through the file explorer it will actually open it from the BASIC app by default, sweet!) I'm looking into getting android studio on my computer to just build my own simple apps like this, but it kind fo defeats the purpose of this project.

anybody know anything bout that?

Hi, I'm experimenting with automation in Excel/VBA, I'm trying to click on the "use another account" element but Spy++ and FindWindowEx can't locate it, but HP UFT can. UFT reads that it has the same HWND as the parent. Can any provide a solution to this?

tl;dr: how to use WinAPI to locate a static element that doesn't have a HWND?

Ernest Demblepuck - Sun, 30 Apr 2017 05:41:08 EST ID:P6PS9CBz No.36788 Ignore Report Quick Reply
There's a few possibilities here.

One is that since this is a Windows Security dialog that your process that is calling FindWindowEx does not have the proper permissions to access that element. This may be resolved by running your program "as administrator".

Alternatively that static element may not be a control at all - it could possibly be just code owned by the parent window that handles mouse-over, mouse-click, and display capabilities for that element. This would explain why HP UFT considers it to have the same HWND as the parent (because it is the same HWND as the parent).

I used to know some programming (i had a few courses in it a bunch of years ago in university before i dropped out) but i think i was very, very far from being able to work with it. What kind of stuff did you program when you weren't very good?

Oh yeah, I know someone has advised you to read some other people's code but If you've never made a program that is at least a couple thousand lines long I don't think you are really going to get anything out of it.

The difficult bits of programming are usually when you have to deal with complexity of your *own* design. Much of the why behind what a good programmer does is just helping themselves not fuck their shit up 10,000 lines in the future. Until you've wrestled with your own dumb program, hit a brick wall where you can't figure out stuff you've wrote, can't see where to put in a new function without blowing everything up, deleted a line of code and broke half the program, and so on, code you read from people who have experienced these things and developed strategies to deal with them is going to go way over your head.

Is there some good way that doesn't include getting an idea of a program I want to make?

Like maybe doing some simple shit for someone else that he'd rather just leave for someone else so that he can spend the time on more advanced stuff?

There is only one way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvwkaHBrDyI

You find a large open source project, in other words software that people actually use, and you go through the feature request list and ask to implement one of them. The reason why you ask is because somebody else could be doing it at the same time. There will probably be a contributers guide you can read for style which you will want to follow.

You start with the easiest feature. The project will give you feedback how to fix your commit if it's missing things or badly written. The users will then find bugs in your feature and you will fix them.

Then repeat. Keep doing this: writing features and fixing bugs until you get good enough at programming that this is no longer an impossible task for you. This is the only, the best, the single most effective way to get good at programming by yourself if you don't have a "mentor" or Sr. Dev sitting beside you.

I was imagining something like this even though I have no idea how it works yet.
Right now I'm mostly doing simple exercises but it's going pretty well so I should be able to get decent at it after I've put more time into it.

What's some good stuff to think about when trying to figure out what would be easy to do?

In job ads for developer jobs in the financial sector, I often get the impression that their requirements aren't awfully strict.
It almost looks like it should be easier to get jobs there than anywhere else, is it like that or have I misunderstood everything?
I barely know anything about this stuff and was just curious so my lack of knowledge could mean that my impressions are wrong.

Yes, the reasons why they aren't strict is because Wallstreet knows that finding a developer who's an expert in literally everything is a unicorn, so what they do is partner a developer with a mathematician or AI/machine learning type expert, and they work together to build HFT or whatever trading strategy they're doing. They typically want ex video game devs, so somebody with C++ knowledge that can be given a spec to implement though lately they've been looking for functional programmers.

It's also a who you know type job, it's hard to get in at first because most of these jobs are never advertised but once you do get in you quickly network as half your coworkers will leave to work for some other hedge fund and often recommend you. That's when you make the gargantuan money in finance tech as you get large performance bonuses but work 60+ hours per week.
