What's your opinion on Delphi and RAD Studio? How would you compare it to C# and Visual Studio? People say it's "old solution" and everyone run away from it but as I see it: it's actively developed, is as old as Ruby and newer than C++ which are great even today (and which needs to be backward compatible while Delphi isn't), syntax seems fun, new technologies are supported... what's wrong with Delphi that is has so bad opinion? There is no free version like Visual Studio Express - that could be a reason for young developers like me to not be interested in it but... is there something more?

The reason I'm asking this is because this company I'll be working for now is developing in Delphi. I know C# and Python, wanted to go for C++ now and I could ask for RAD Studio C++ Builder but...

IDK the only version of Delphi I've used was Borland Delphi 5.

Honestly compared to VB5-6(came out around the same time i think.) The Object Toolbox(UI) was much better a lot of built in objects that don't require dependencies was fuckin sweet!! The syntax was harder to figure out obviously. It's a good lang IMO I would code in it again.

I've used RAD Studio for many C++ projects. It's solid, but I do have some complaints:
1) You basically have to deal with both C++ and Delphi libraries. So, C++ strings start indexing at 0, Delphi ones at 1.
2) C++ naming conventions are one way, Delphi ones another.
3) I broke the compiler at one point: I think I was trying to make a template friend function, and the compiler would just spit out an error. I copied the code into Visual Studio and it worked fine though.
4) It's not free, so if I have to leave my code behind for the next guy, I may be forced to use VS because he won't have RADS.
5) It took them forever to support 64-bit integers (assuming that the newest version even has them).

Honestly, I'd just use C# if the program can get away with using it. Do you really need that extra speed of C++? As for Delphi, what does it have over C#? C# is much more popular, so it's easier to find answers to questions, and find libraries in it.

The saying that it is bad practice 100% of the time is not entirely true.

I handle exceptions when needed.
The fear is that "On Error Resume Next" will overlook serious exception errors. A one function app. I don't think we have much to worry about here now do we?

After installing adblock for firefox, its all messed up. It will no longer remember my home page even though i have the settings set on a home page. And no longer can i click on the ''back'' button because it is now always gray, as if there never was a previous page.

it has messed up firefox VERY BAD. I have now uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 2 times. At first everything appears fine. But then the 3rd time i open the browser, it appears all messed up. No home page, altered controls and a settings system
that does not work. I cannot even open the ''addon'' manager to remove the addblock if it is even there. But i am going to reinstall firefox and see if i can open the addon manager while firefox still works. Hopefully for some reason the adblock is still
there, meaning that i can simply remove it for this bullshit to end.

So, I just read about CSS3 flex-boxes. They seem like the Right Way to solve this problem. The MDN seems to support this too:

Here's a small example that's easier to understand:

Support for it seems pretty recent ( ), but it seems to work fine with all the most-recent versions of the browsers that I tried. (Chrome, FF, Opera, and IE, on Windows)

The op may want to seriously consider using it. It's much less painful than doing the float method imo.

what about internets that works like bitcoin. A little bit of the net on everyone's computer. But instead of centralized sites it would work more like instant messaging, however each user could save all of their own web pages, even if web page was modified by someone else. So when they download all the pages they can save them if they want to keep a record. But it would all work with 100% encryption in every facet of the internet. Hardware, operating system, software and packet send/receive.

So imagine email, instant messaging, web pages, video and audio as well as video games all encrypted and 100% peer2peer. You can't send someone something unless their computer is on and set to receive. You could possibly put certain messages and commands on a token-ring-like waiting roster until your friend comes online, then it will send it to them. But that wouldn't be done with any server, all peer 2 peer and directly from your own computer. Everything would be kept safe with encryption, and you could totally use bitcoin with the network, just like how you use bitcoin with the current inet so you could also keep your finances perfectly safe as well.

I think this is a great idea. I know plenty of people are smart enough to have already thought of this crap, but it would shut down the net, because the government would put a stop to the fact that using this type of technology would make it nearly impossible for them to find you and masturbate to your grandma's knickers.

But the hardware is where the real problem lies. We need fpga chips, but ones that are not made from any company that does NOT open source the hardware. Because if they don't open source it, the NSA most likely convinced that company to put hardware backdoors in it. So we should all really learn how to program and design computer hardware for this monstrous task of freeing up the internet.

So you are suggesting switching from using one set of wires to transmit data to two. Fair enough, it does make it harder to sniff. This is however something software guys tend to call "Security through obscurity". Most people don't see that as a good solution.

that ZDNet article you linked failed to mention a part (I think is fairly important) of the source it cited:
The MitM cannot create a cert that would seem to be coming from the original server without their private key.

The likely problem is that an unwanted group has the private key for one or more certs that every device comes bundled with. One solution would be to throw all those away and use some trusted method to transfer (likely physical, although I'm not sure if people trust even that anymore) new certs for each server you want to talk to. Unfortunately that is not quite feasible. It's not as over the top as sending new satellites and using them to create a p2p network between a few billion devices, but still.

There are efforts to change things. DNSsec for one sounds it could do good, but then again there is no knowing what stuff gets forced there / DNS servers. Some browser plugins that replace the current root-certificate reliance with network of trust between people.

Unfortunately OP is right in that for perfect security you cannot trust anyone at any level, not software nor hardware. I still find his visions of New World Web delusional so I guess I'll just have to consider everything I do online as public information.

it's hardware and software. This is not to say that the government can come in your property, find your fiber optic line and interject their own to monitor all your activity. But the thing is since everything is encrypted and the network works p2p and is not centralized in anyway, the only way they could ever compromise your network or computers is if you have personal information on it. But the network encourages free and anonymous usage, right down to your name, age, location and the use of bitcoin and other alternative coins for finances. They simply can't figure out who you are from simply sniffing packets even if they can break the encryption. Your own fault if you don't follow the 3 simple rules. No name, no banks and no personal information.

Hello, I am using grep and trying to do this question. It is very simple but I'm having trouble with this question since it always includes the word "best" in one that should be excluded.

List all the lines in the “f3.txt” file that contain words with a character ‘b’ not followed by a character ‘e’

this is the command I used
Grep –n b[^e]

I believe it should find a word that begins with be and exclude the e. But is not doing so

this is interesting. back in the 90s i knew someoen who was implementing computer assisted steering and parking for large trucks (as they blindly back into loading docks, say).

im sure you can simulate this somehow using one of the large cad or mechanical software products, but for something on this scale i would do all the simulation and math inside your code and then render it in wireframe using opengl or something to verify it's correct.
