Where do you recommend I look? I have already checked out /r/IWantToLearn and searched for 'java'. The context of learning is within developing a hobby website. Since I can't afford to pay for help, I thought training is the next best thing. here is a sample of how I approached people: /begin How would you like to learn Java while working on a real project? I was on my way to /r/ask so I could ask how I can go about finding an 'apprentice'. Happened to find /r/IWantToLearn and I searched for 'java' and found your comment. I am planning on doing a web application for fun and since I can't afford to pay someone to help me I thought I would exchange training for some help. The complete stack of what I plan to use is as follows: 1. PostgreSQL for database (thru iBatis) 2. Induction Java Web Framework (for all the logic and programming) 3. Tomcat / Apache All from inside IntelliJ And also use HTML / CSS / JQuery / JSON / Freemarker So these are all the technologies you will get to learn about. Let me know if you are interested Since this is a lot to type, I will be copying and pasting it to a few other places.... I have no idea how this is going to go, but why not? BTW. I am a professional Java developer with 7 years experience and 4 years web app building experience. I live in Scottsdale, AZ. /end

I dont know how you cancel a bitcoin transaction. If you mean you did a RBF and send the money back to your own address - I dont' know what you paid earlier, but $35 seems a bit high.

If you think majority like BCH because its faster, this would not have been a reason to break away from BTC. An existential threat to Bitcoin is not having bandwidth to process transactions. By not transacting enough volume you are killing adoption just when adoption is the most important.

The ability to do high transactions is in the code. You can point to algorithms and data structures and say, here is where a hashmap is used to make looking things up 1000% faster than without, and here is where you can detect a peer already has a txn so you don't have to send it which is helpful when you are doing 1000 txs per second. Please point to me what in the BTC codebase there is a "store of value" algorithm...there isn't and if it were it would be in BCH, BSV, and hell even BTG. I think you agree with me on that SOV is really a measure of confidence of users. Like how a Jackson Pollock painting is worth much more than even a better painting by an unnown. I grant to you that SOV is real on BTC - people have confidence in it and it is reflected in the price. But confidence needs to be earned and kept. And I don't think BTC is doing that. As more and more people get into crypto and jam up BTC even more - they will start looking elsewhere. The only thing BTC is doing well is congestion - what else does it have besides the "Bitcoin" name? There is *nothing* BTC does technically that is better than other coins.

Well you know, lets say you have convinced me that BTC is the best...now what? The mempool is full 3/4 of the day and I don't see how such a coin will onboard even more users without making things even worse. What exactly do you want me to do with the knowledge that BTC is king? What I can do with BCH is use it and it works. If it goes to $0.01, if I can still use it for 15% discount on Purse.IO, i will continue. If BCH gets hash attacked to death, I will move on to the next coin that looks like it has a future. BTC has reached the end of the line. It is at maximum capacity and has achieved all goals it was meant to. It can't do more. The issue is no one is raising the ceiling so BTC is unusable for me personally. I don't believe my stance is either extreme or bullheaded. When I can get the job done with $0.01, why would I use $0.50? And why would I settle with my transaction in the mempool for 12 hours, when it can be 10mins? I don't think I am asking for too much when BTC is literally the ONLY coin that can't deliver on these requirements.

BTC simply has too much momentum with the "Bitcoin" label. I feel there is only one true way to dethrone BTC - that is to actually use cryptocurrency for payments. People will naturally use the coin that solves their problem. This is why we don't have pork and beef and chicken subreddits fighting with each other - its because people know what they like and what works for them. You can't argue which coin is better when there is no real usage going on.

I want to use a coin that aims to become a gobal currency - it may fail to achieve it, but at least it wants to be and it is trying to be. BTC has given up on the idea by keeping its blocksize as small as it is with no roadmap to increasing it. Bitcoin Cash has a roadmap to scale to global levels, not just in terms of onchain capacity, but also work on improving 0-conf. Mind you, I would still support BTC if what was coming from the developers made any sense to me. First of all, even 20MB full blocks would not be a burden to anyone. 20MB full blocks means having to buy a new 8TB drive every 7 years. Thats too much? 2nd - if BTC had 20 MB full blocks its price would be well over $50K (IMO) so that pays for any hardware that is needed. 3rd - BCH has 32MB limit but even when BCH has had a backlog of 20MB we still see some miners mining 2MB blocks. You can have no blocksize limit, but miners will only mine the size they think the network will accept. Its all about being reasonable. BSV keeping protocol at v1.0 is unreasonable to me, so I don't support it. BTG changed the POW algorithm - so I don't even know what that's about. BCH is the sanest most reasonable Bitcoin project. I will support it, unless it starts being not sane or something saner comes along.

If there are enough members of a group that feel so strongly that a branch born of an attack has actual value - they are more than welcome to support the fork. I do not see this as a negative. My personal opinion is that one thing matters and one thing only. The user experience of using a coin. The merchants and customers. None of these people know what a hash rate is, or a fork, or a block. Most may not be familiar with the word fungible, even - I wasn't. Under no circumstances is a 10 block re-org a natural event and entertaining the idea of its validity is unreasonable. Yet, to put the burden on users to wait 30+ confirmations for an event that can only happen during an attack is not putting the user first.

i guess its 9 - but I don't think i have ever heard of even 4 happening. Its exponentially rarer with each step. so even though 1 block is common, 2 is far less often, 3 is extremely rare - 4 has never happened to my knowledge.

No. BCH will reorg for 1,2,3 blocks. 1 block reorgs are common, 2 block reorgs also happen naturally, 3 is extremely rare but it may have happened and 4 has never happened to my knowledge. Once you get to 10, it basically means its a deliberate attack. The fact that reorgs dont happen on BCH that are more than 10 levels deep is not related to how expensive it is. BCH has checkpoints, so even if hashrate demands otherwise, a block that is 10 levels deep is cemented in the blockchain.

I think perhaps you have not heard of BCH's reorg protection. It is not possible to reorg over 10 blocks without splitting the chain. It is true that with Bitcoin, reorgs can naturally happen but these are usually 1 or 2 blocks deep and very rarely 3 - I don't believe a 4 level deep has ever happened or even 3. It is reasonable to assume that a 10-level deep re-org is due to a deliberate attack. BCH has checkpoints that are 10 levels deeps (not sure what the technical name is). Even if hashrate demands otherwise, a block that is 10 levels deep is cemented into the block chain.

BTC has no plans on scaling its capacity to become a global currency. It has given up and its community are pushing Layer 2 solutions which do not work as well as Bitcoin does. Bitcoin Cash split from BTC and does have the state goal of scaling on chain as much as is feasible. BCH's roadmap simply seem more logical and sane to me. If you can scale onchain why wouldn't you? If you think 100MB blocks is too much - fine, but 10MB? really? filling up an 8TB in 15 years is too much?

I want to use BTC, but its capacity is full. I have no choice but to use the next best thing. Its like the best steak restaurant in a city only has 6 tables and acting surprised that people go to other restaurants. Dude - I started with BTC in 2015. Learned all about it in one go over the christmas break. I love Bitcoin. I was even beginning to get comfortable with paying $0.25 fees. That all changed when it became crystal clear that BTC community has zero interest in scaling onchain. I have zero interest in Lightning until Lightning Labs declares it as Production Ready.

I think he was talking about Europe there. But I have always thought it interesting from the United States point of view. US is founded on immigrants and in a sense it is a filter for bringing in the bravest and most risk takers and for those who give up everything for a better future. The very act of emigrating from a country and moving to another says a lot about the kind of person you are. I generally think these are good traits.

The fork mechanism has zero effect on the original chain. As we speak, BTC or BCH could have been forked 200 times in the last hour as an exercise in some blockchain class. With the ability to fork, the option to divest is not taken away. User can choose to divest or if there are enough of them, to fork or a combination.

My take away is POW doesn't work because hard forks and splits happen. I personally take this as one of the most valuable features of Bitcoin. If you do not agree with the rules you are free to split.

I like pasta, I am not allowed to order kabob? I find AVA interesting. And by being best of both worlds I meant the (perhaps) eventual inclusion of Avalanche for pre-consensus in BCH. I am not all in on AVA for a couple of reasons. a) I can't wrap my head around it. Bitcoin is extremely simple and straight forward and makes reasoning about it much easier. It may take a while for me to get there with AVA. b) The claims that AVA is using a new novel consensus algorithm - yet, I don't see a mention of it on [Consensus - Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consensus_(computer_science)). One would think if a new continent was discovered in geography that it would make waves in the Continents article in Wikipedia. c) the opposite of fair distribution of AVAX that is going public soon. But I am keeping my eye on AVA.

But why do "credited investors" get to participate and not regular people? Makes no sense - even from "greed" perspective. Having more buyers is good for the seller.

/r/btc/comments/hgy1bz/noob_question_what_would_be_the_problems_by/fw6wm2w/

BTC currently handles 400K transactions per day on a ~1.2-1.5MB blocksize. BTC (if the core developers allowed it) could handle 10MB standing on its head. Alas, BTC community seems to think being difficult to use makes BTC useful as a "store of value". Do the math to figure out what is possible. * 144 blocks a day * 20MB per block * say you need 8 times that for bandwidth for you peers 144*20MB = 3GB per day = 7 years to fill up an 8TB drive. Bandwidth 3GB * 8 per day = 2Mbps Now keep in mind that if BTC had 20MB full blocks 24/7 that it is being used by 20x the number of people - so its price would probably be (conservatively) 4x what it is now? Miners know better than anyone that if Bitcoin had billions of transactions per day at $0.01 fees - it would make them MUCH more money than 400K txs per day even at $20 fees.

I see your point. Unfortunately BCH does not have an "official" marketing team. Most people, including yours truly, spread the gospel their own way. You are not going to change that - no one can. However, if someone is having their problem solved using BTC that's awesome. If not, they will naturally look elsewhere to solve their problem that crypto can solve. If someone's only reason not to get BCH is because its "shady", then they don't really have a problem that BCH solves - otherwise they would use it.

You replace BCH with BCH. When I buy $50 worth of goods with purse.io, I use my BCH, but then immediately buy $50 worth of BCH from coinbase. I did the same thing with a gym trainer of mine, I gave them BCH when it was around $180 i think, but immediately bought $180 from coinbase. A few weeks later BCH was $240 - and I didn't feel bad because of volatility. Also please stop worrying and/or making decisions based on fiat being abolished.

Maybe when the markets are not so manipulatable PoS *might* have merit. But this is absolutely not the case today. The best defense against "BTC is $10K because people are printing tether out of thin air" is that you can't fake hash-rate. If BTC is truly $10K or manipulated to look like $10k - the electricity bill is real and miners are mining as if BTC truly is worth $10K. POW is the best check against manipulating a coin's value and is truly decentralized.

It all starts with the white paper. It states as block rewards decrease miners get compensated through fees. BTC can handle 400k txs per day and BCH (currently) 32x that with the stated goal of billions someday. Given the same payment amount to miners, BCH spreads the cost across many more txs hence cheaper fees.

My take on it is if you are going to make changes like this, best to do them now VS when the ecosystem is so big that we are seeing 8MB blocks. If opportunists want to break up BCH let them do it while the ecosystem is relatively small. In my opinion, premature optimization is when you are burning calories on something with little or no RIO while at the same time ignoring more urgent needs. If anyone sees an urgent need they are free to develop.

To scale on chain you need to believe in it. This is a very difficult problem that needs creativity and passion. Reluctantly adding a few megs which they could have done with a one line change in Dec 2017, is not at all equivalent to scaling to the gigabyte blocks needed. We can't have these arguments every time the blocks get full.

The more confirmations a transaction the more secure it is. Accepting a $2,000 transfer with 0-conf may not be acceptable for some. But $50 should be no problem. Exchanges have one value set for everyone so whether $20 or $10,000 its as inconvenient.

In other words BSV wont optimize software because you can throw hardware at it? If so this is a bad approach. BSV is not the sole user of cpu, network, memory, storage resources. It is in competition with literally everything else on the planet (cryptocoin or not). So all else being equal more optimized software will win....but some think people will BSV just because someone *thinks* its ehat satoshi would have wanted? Or because some devs disnt want to upgrade their software a handful.of times as the protol found its footing?

Assuming anyone in that camp is profit driven, then finding out BCH is on right track means buying BCH at $300 is a guaranteed way to, say, 50x your investment instead of turning 180 on BTC and 3x any investment in an already expensive coin.

Yes you can transfer out of coinbase. But it requires quite some skill to safely keep the coins yourself. It sounds like you should be studying a bit more to learn about these things. I recommend letting coinbase manage your funds. Also don't sell. When you are ready to control your own funds buy a hardware wallet like a ledger nano s and a place to keep your words like cryptosteel.

Is it possible to get your email hacked if uou ever receive email but then go offline? Do you need to setup your email for 10 and when you receive 12 you cant login? Does your email probability of success send depend on how many words are in it? 500 words 95% 700 words 50% , 1000+ almost 0% No LN is completely strange and nonsensical for non techies.

I wont get on a slippery slope and argue 1TB blocks. But Core rather see bitcoin split than to raise the blocks to 2 MB (not talking about segwit). Where is the data that shows 2MB or even 8MB is umsustainable? If you want to talk about 300 years from now, then 100KB blocks are equally unsustainable for the same reasons on a larger timescale.

When BTC had 300MB backlog, Blockstream did not raise. You really think that BS will a) admit LN failed? B) raise the blocksize if it means a HF? C) raise it if segwit usage is below 90% D) raise it if they see Liquid as under utilized? As long as the "$100 fee is good" people are im charge, BTC is a 1.6KBPS system.

I think BTC is no longer Bitcoin. Bitcoin will never die but BTC is already irrelevant. BTC is limited to 300K txs per day. This is good enough for a small town...not humanity. LN is an absolute cluster, that changes the rules of how much, what time, and if you can send and receive payments. Bitcoin Cash will never die, true. How about tech? BTC 40 bytes in OP_RETURN, BCH 220. BCH has enabled most opcodes that are disabled in BTC. BCH has 0-Conf. BCH has room in its blocks for growth and adoption.

I don't know how much miners spend on PoW daily (electricity, etc) to secure the Bitcoin network - so I am gonig to just pick $4 million. My point is you cannot get around paying that to the miners - unless you want the PoW for Bitcoin to reduce. If miners are spending $4 million a day for solving the difficulty puzzle - that $4 million *has* to come from somewhere. If most people are doing off-chain tx, then the times when you do on-chain you are going to have to make up for that. So it seems to me, the low-volume transactions are subsidizing the high-volume guys. That is, the miners still are getting paid $4 million a day, but the guys who exchange 10,000 transactions a day are only paying for the handful of transactions to open/close/refill. And the users that do 30 transactions a month pay equally for the same few handful of on-chain transactions. What am I missing here?

This is what happens when you have a decentralized movement like Bitcoin. You will have all kinds of people being involved eventually specially if BCH takes the lead. Each person will have a different idea whats best. I would say pick your battles - and "Bitcoin (BCH)" is as far as I would go. And frankly even if BCH takes over PoW, can you imagine the poor reputation that "Bitcoin" will have by then? "Bitcoin Cash" brand would be worth more and I would think twice about changing that even.

As ridiculous as it sounded to the engineers loading a [5MB / 2 ton drive onto a plane](http://www.businessinsider.com/picture-of-ibm-hard-drive-on-airplane-2014-1) that one day you would carry 64GB in your pocket - It just might the case that in 50 years we will be carying 1 sextillion bytes in a sugar cube (1,000 exabytes)

I think BCH is sending the message out that this branch is dedicated to on-chain scaling. You can't expect people to take you seriously when you release 1GB blocksize research data - when you are timid about increasing to even 32MB. I fully expect the 32MB (which is baked into the protocol of Bitcoin) limit to also be removed by end of next year.

People who are studying the problem like Dr. Peter Rizun say that we can handle much bigger blocks than 32MB with today's tech [see here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SJm2ep3X_M) I tend to give more weight to the word of smart people whose day job is to study this stuff. And I am guessing you will be able to have a 50TB storage in 5 years for less than $100. And if someone is worried about the first-time syncing costs - well, I will sell you my 50TB for $100 with the blockchain pre-loaded for free.

idle hands - they can't build BTC apps because it has been crippled. They can't develop LN code because they are not a Blockstream employee. They can't bring new users to BTC because the last thing they need is users "spamming" and bloating the mempool that can't handle more than 4 tx/s. What else they gonna do?

You may not realize it, but is a very good sign when BCH not only gets the attention of supporters, but also the attention of non-supporters. I think Bitcoin Gold, Ripple, and tons of other coins - are a complete waste of time, but I don't waste my time and energy in their forums. The fact that we get so much energy being directed here instead of directed at building up BTC - is very encouraging. Enjoy your stay!

Jesus Christ man - what are you so rabid about? You don't have to be so fearful - just buy some BCH to hedge your bets. The best way to protest BCH is basically not supporting it financially. You don't have to spend the very finite limited time you have left on earth spitting hateful comments on some reddit forum of a coin you despise. You could be doing almost anything that is more worthwhile than this. Spend your time to improve BTC adoption - that's the way to beat BCH. Coming here and acting like an angry teenager just gives the impression that "the other side" really has nothing left but trolling. But I understand its a bit tough since BTC has crippled the ability to build anything useful on top of it. And to develop Lightning - well good luck on getting into that club. Actually there IS something you can do - make some Youtube tutorials on how to install and use an LN node!

I believe we are already immortal in a sense. You exist because your brain exists - you have no choice but to exist. The only way for you to die is for the physical process that keeps you going to be stopped. Old age wears down this physical process. Suicide damages it. Poisons disrupt the physical process. Where ever a brain is fully active, a consciousness has no choice but to exist. The only difference between this kind of being immortal and the typical meaning most people have of being immortal is that there is one continuos consistent memory with the classic sense of being immortal. The other kind of being immortal is that you have different memories. The universe is one consciousness but bound by physical processes that have different memories. That's my take on it.

I would actually think this could be more dangerous and risky than it's worth. You don't know who these people are. Why would you want to have any 'fun' with them? Booby trapping your house, no matter how benign, puts a lot of liability on you. In a world where burglars have sued and won against home owners, what r u going to do if one of these kids breaks an ankle on your property? or gets hurt some other way? Do not try to have any fun with this. I would just ignore it. Or you could leave a note at the door that you only open the door after 30 seconds of knocking...that way only legitimate people will stick around for 30 seconds. The pranksters won't dare stay that long...and if they don't u know it was the pranksters and not even bother opening the door. If they do knock for 30 seconds....you would easily catch them in the act. Or put up a webcam and try to identify them. and talk to their parents or something. I personally would have loved to have fun with this...or innocently scaring them or something...but the law does not have a sense of humor.

The guy leaves (to form his own company) - within a year the place nearly lost 50% of its work-force (including myself). I would have gladly given up a huge chunk of my salary for the manager to be paid very well so he would stay...so everyone would have jobs. I believe every human being that works full-time deserves a home / car / health insurance / etc. Regardless of what they do.

"One person in a room, you and a douchebag. How is this possible?" That was actually one of the funniest comebacks, ever! No need to go back and forth here... I actually do have a favorite riddle: There is an island whose population is born with either a red or blue dot on their forehead. They cannot see their own dot, but they can see everybody else's. There are roughly 100 inhabitants on this island (the exact number is irrelevant). They never talk to each other about the dots. Their religion states that if they figure out what color dot they have they must leave the island the next day. The people also have perfect logic and deductive reasoning skills. One day a tourist stops by and yells, "I see at least one person with a blue dot". The tourist then leaves. Within roughly a 100 days, all inhabitants had left the island. What happend? (yes, everybody figured out the color of their dots. but how?) clues: This is not a trick question...pun trick, word play, or anything. This is a pure logic riddle. Before the tourist came, of course everyone on the island knew who the blue dot people were. This is what is puzzling - seemingly, the tourist did not add any new information that the inhabitants didn't already know. The exact number of people with blues dots and red dots is not really important...say in this case, 40% had blue and 60% had red. Oh, and the name of the tourist was not Stan Lee :)

There is a spoiler in my comment half-way through. I will warn with a [spoiler] right before the spoiler. I am sorry, but this is not a riddle - well, I guess I would classify it as a really really terrible one. After reading the answer, I was quite disappointed. A riddle implies that most people using logic and thinking can come up with a solution. Or if they can't, at least when the answer is given, it is universally understood. [spoiler] Anyone not familiar with x-men would have absolutely no hope of solving this. Using the style of your riddle I could make something up like: There is a room that has 2 people and no people at the same time..how is this possible? answer: the room is occupied by Mr. A (a lesser known character from X-Men) who has the amazing ability to exist and not exist at the same time...and also be counted as 2 people when convenient. Hope you get my point that there is nothing logical about Mr. A. He (and the other characters in your riddle) were imagined up by some guy. I guess in conclusion, a good riddle (IMO) gives you an 'aha!!' moment when u read the answer..and the really good ones...give you nice laugh. This one just left me bitter cause I felt I was cheated - the setup did not put me in the context to even give me even the slightest chance of success. ReliableSource is the real super-hero IMO.

I own a MacBook Pro and the iPod. Both these products are fantastically high quality devices. Specifically the MacBook Pro - it feels very solid and sturdy. The design features such as keyboard lights, screen brightness, volume control, disc eject are very well thought out and convenient. The keyboard is an absolute pleasure to type on (makes it easy to give this long response). The whole device is fantastically portable and slick. The multi-touch mouse pad makes browsing an absolute pleasure (compared with the clunky multi-touch support you get on PC laptops which frustrate me and I use the mouse to scroll). Overall, many apple products are simply designed and executed very nicely. It shows that the team really cared about what they were doing and did it competently. As an example, I can take a PC laptop and literally twist it a few degrees in any directions...it's like they are made with loose-fitting jello - pathetic. However, I do prefer PC work stations. But I am forever an Apple laptop guy. They only thing that would piss me off at this point is if it burned out on me. I've never had that happen with a PC laptop.

call me dumb but you lost me here: >You'll reach out and hold the rail in place, and the new canvas begins to rotate around the point the pen touches when the train is in the absolute center of the rails. specifically: > hold the rail in place In your description, I gathered the train was moving, not the rail...so what does holding the rails accomplish since it wasn't moving to begin with? > the new canvas begins to rotate around the point the pen touches I don't get the mechanics here. If I have a flat sheet of paper on a table and i draw on it while holding the pencil perpendicular to the paper and moving...the paper won't rotate. If the pencil-tip causes friction on the paper, it will just pull it along....not cause it to rotate. Would the analogy work if it was a small box on wheels having a pen attached to it. Is it important that it be a train? I don't see how the length of the vehicle on the rails is significant. Would really appreciate an explanation....cause I care about understanding fourier transforms. thanks in advance.

Thanks for the thoughtful response. I guess what it comes down for me is that a criminal should either be 'fixed' and returned back into society or if their crime makes them 'unfixable', they should be locked away or disposed with. If a person is to be executed, torturing or mistreating them does not add anything to anyone...it just creates institutionalized forms of torturing citizens...which could backfire on you or someone you love someday. And remember there will always be innocent people who are jailed and/or executed. This is a fact and a statistic that cannot be brought to zero percent. I guess my philosophy is do unto others as they would want on themselves (slight modification of the golden rule). Even if they themselves didn't follow the rule. I can tell you in all honestly that if a person tortured and killed a family member I love dearly, my feelings would not change. I would not want them mistreated - just away from society, one way or the other. Be it through execution or being locked away makes no difference. That's just my opinion.

Of course if nitrogen was used in slaughter houses around the world, the cost would be a huge factor as thousands of tons it would probably be used. But when you are talking about executing inmates (that is, human beings) would you really consider it expensive to use something that is used in fertilizer? It couldn't possibly cost more than a few dollars in nitrogen gas to kill a person. About 50 inmates are executed a year in the U.S, it is not like this will have an impact on the supply of nitrogen used for food. An inmate going through the death-penalty process costs more than a million dollars to the state. The cost mostly comes for the judicial safe-guards in place to make sure appeals can take place. The cost of using a bullet, another form of gas, or nitrogen gas is moot I would guess.

As long as capital punishment is being used it is good that some people are trying to find humane ways of doing it. Ideally it would be nice to end executions all together. In the meantime, while that ideal has not been reached, many people around the world are being executed daily. Trying to reduce their pain WHILE we wait for the practice to end (which might not happen until at least many decades from now) is a good thing.

What if it turns out that your existence in the universe consists of living out the lives of every human being who has ever existed...you will live as every torture victim...murder victim....rape victim...etc. (and of course everyone who had a good life too). So if you find yourself in a situation where you could hurt someone or not...shouldn't u choose not to hurt them, since you will be them sometime in the cosmic future? You have the bad guy...torturing him and killing him will not make the victim feel any better or worse. And if the victim is still alive and wants revenge...just write a fake letter detailing the torture of the criminal before he was executed. Really - the world needs less pain..not more.

I think it is nobel what you are trying to do, but ultimately I don't agree. Any job that can be automated is below human dignity, in my opinion. By your logic, NOTHING should be automated...because every act of automation eliminates human jobs. I worked at a place where faxing customers was automated...before that we had 2 workers who did nothing all day but type numbers into fax machines and wait while customers were faxed their papers. What satisfaction, besides pay, would you get from a work that you full well know a computer can do? Personally I would feel I am wasting my life.

Actually I disagree with you on that - when something is too small to make out, you find a way to zoom in, be it a magnifying glass or a camera, or a microscope. You don't have to be told to zoom in. Think about this example....imagine instead of the words getting smaller and smaller...they were being written on a wall and got progressively higher and higher on the wall...would you have to instruct them to get a ladder?? But even if you are right, how is the word 'magnifying glass' going to have any meaning to them? If anything, you need to find a cultural-neutral way to instruct them to build a magnifying glass.

Thanks for your thoughts. This is actually a spin-off from SomebodyMakeThis. Some people were complaining that too many ideas in there were designed for programmers. So I decided to make this subreddit just for programming ideas. I noticed in the previous community there were a lot of impossible ideas similar to 'Can someone make an operating system that boots up fast?', I mean come on!! That's not a very useful post. This place is specifically designed for people to share coding project ideas. Hopefully it will become a place for when you are bored and want to get an idea to start coding, you can just browse and find something interesting. I see you point...if I wanted a wordpress plugin, /r/wordpress would be a great place to go. However, plugin-requests are kind of 'non-informative' content. Too many of them, and it becomes more difficult for /r/wordpress to be a place to learn things.

Of course you are right.

As a U.S. citizen who married a foreign woman I would absolutely recommend to anyone doing the same thing to let your wife keep their MAIDEN name on everything. Specifically the Certificate of Naturalization. You can always go through the courts to change your name on driver's license, social security, etc. But the name on Cert of Nat. should be her maiden name. We did not do this and it gave us a lot of head-ache. We also talked with an immigration lawyer and she said this is one piece of advice she wished everyone would listen to. Problems always occur, for example, if your wife has school documents from her own country and when the names don't match you have to jump through a lot of hoops to get things settled. My wife went over with her birth certificate, her marriage license, U.S. passport (a clear chain of events that show how her name was changed) and they gave her trouble for 6 months! Asked her to get a letter specifically from the USCIS that says point blank that she is who she says she is. The USCIS of course, DOES NOT WRITE LETTERS for you.

Very nice! But taking my original response and replacing 'bitcoin' with 'physical cash' would of course lead to non-sense. Which is the point you are trying to make. But it is non-sense not because my original response was necessarily wrong, but because physical and digital currencies are fundamentally different. a) it is possible to lose your wallet and find it. It is possible to lose it in the middle of the subway with $500 in it and have a good samaritan return it with nothing missing (we have seen stories like this many times on reddit). Although I admit that losing physical is not the same as losing digital wallet. You don't lose digital wallet - it gets stolen!! and a stolen wallet is never returned either....ok, you win. b) If someone stole your digital bitcon wallet, they would walk away with ALL your digital money. But rarely do people keep ALL their physical money in their wallet when it gets stolen. Come to think of it, this might be a solution to the bitcoin wallet too! Allow many wallets so even if someone hacks your wallet, they only get some of your money, not all of it! c) I guess my response to all your other points is that, yes, there will be those who pick-pocket, and take cash off the weak, and steal. And you can never be clever enough to keep people from mugging you or stealing from you...and even a chain can only go so far...but my point from (b) applies. You will get mugged, but unless you are stupid enough to walk around with your entire life savings....it is something most people can recover from quite easily. This is not the case with a bitcoin wallet, where ALL your money is in one place.

Commented by /u/mrreddit in /r/programming on March 21, 2011 12:59:09

That's pretty good. But a) if you rely on majority of people to use Linux before bitcoin becomes popular, well, that will never happen. I personally moved to Ubuntu 3 different times and moved back for various reasons. b) Although I grant Linux is much much better at preventing viruses from infecting...it is still software, it still has bugs, and can still be infected. It is not nearly as targeted because user base is so small. If majority of bitcoin users are on Linux and bitcoin gains in popularity, I can easily imagine more focus being put on Linux viruses. I was suggesting a hardware based solution where it is physically impossible to get a virus.

My common sense says 'do not rely on human common sense'. Have you ever clicked on a google search link or a reddit link and be presented with a firefox or chrome warning, 'this site is known as an attack site'? Well, did I just get a virus? was close at getting one? have I ever gone on a site where it was an attack site but wasn't warned? what exactly is an attack site? It is too much responsibility to put on the average user to make sure they don't get viruses through common sense. You would really have to be an expert in all ways that a virus can be transmitted to your computer...and clever hackers are coming up with new ways every single day. I simply don't trust myself or my common sense. Now if the cost of getting a virus is that you might spend a few hours cleaning up...or re-installing your computer...fine. But if the cost is losing $10K in bitcoins....no thanks.

Commented by /u/mrreddit in /r/programming on March 21, 2011 12:37:22

I am skeptical this will catch on because if you lose your digital wallet there is no way to get it back. And you need to be very very good at computer security to make sure your computer does not have viruses or get viruses. if bitcoins become popular u can bet there will be many viruses created just to steal digital wallets. I am a computer guy and I don't trust myself with keeping my computer 100% virus free... A solution I see is specific hardware designed to keep your wallet with hardwired code that no virus could corrupt...then it would be easy to keep ur wallet safe

First a user generated and open database that provides information about the people and companies involved in the product - those who benefit from you buying that product. Second another user generated and open database that links actions to users and companies - it would site news articles and link evidence that such actions were done. But it is objective - does not judge. Example: Mr. ABC donated to planned parent hood. Mr. XYZ donated to WBC. etc. Third, the app would allow the user to define their sensibilities or ethics. Why should the app be used to just punish companies when it can also reward! You might put in your profile: I want to help companies that donated to animal shelters...I want to punish companies that have boards of directors that donated to Fox news. etc. Everything after this is whatever clever apps developers want to build using the above data. I would personally build a service that does 2 things: 1. the app will tell you how much the product you buy lines up with your sensibilities - gives u detailed breakdown. 2. the server would send out daily / weekly emails to parties involved and give them report that today 1232 consumers refused to buy their products for the reasons below: a) Mr. XYZ on your board donated to fox prompted 200 refusal to buy b) The companies stance on global warming prompted 234 refusals etc. And vice versa, if people bought products because company did a good thing

It's just that money is so tight for science programs, we should eliminate waste were possible.

The problem of "paying hundreds of $$ for useless textbooks" involves the universities making textbooks obsolete every semester. The textbooks themselves are not useless, they teach, and mostly pretty well. They are made useless by the university. The solution to THIS problem would be something along the lines of people sharing the exercises at the end of chapters which is often the only thing that changes between editions. Even with OP's site being a success, students will continue to shell out hundreds of $$ for useless textbooks....

0. I suggest bigger fonts for the main text (12 points minimum) 1. Design your website for 1024 wide screen (seems narrow on my screen) 2. Resume has accents in some parts and no accents in other parts (namely the menu) - be consistent. 3. Resume was difficult for me to read. Everything was like one (small) font, one color (I barely noticed the grey) and kind of runs together. Separate out the section with clear headers (which have bigger font) to make it more aesthetically pleasing. all this is my opinion of course...good luck buddy.

Did anyone notice that there wasn't a single....not a SINGLE bullet time effect shot in 2nd and 3rd movies? The bullet time effect is not just a name that you slap on any scene just because you play it in slow motion. It is not a name you just slap on a scene just because u make it cgi and rotate around in it. The one and only and true bullet time effect (as it was created in some computer graphics lab and executed in the first matrix film) is the capturing of scene information using dozens of cameras simultaneously and then extrapolating a new pov given existing data captured through film. Most of the "bullet time" effect scenes in the 2nd and 3rd matrix movies were just shot with a single camera and played back in slow motion - very lazy and cheap. The other fake "bullet time" effects were not even film - just a full 3d representation of the scene and flying through it in slow motion like a video game...this might be a cool effect, but it's not "bullet time".

There are lots of good things that happen as well as bad. It is not as bad as reddit makes it out to be.

If 2 people want to learn to play guitar - one with hopes of becoming a professional musician, the other just to play a few tunes after work for relaxation - I don't think it is necessary for them to follow the same path in learning. I have absolutely no interest (and do not have the time to invest) in reading sheet music, memorizing every note on the fret board, memorizing the scales, etc. I just want to play... I've used TABS and they are incredibly helpful to a guy like me.

Commented by /u/mrreddit in /r/Guitar on January 23, 2011 01:48:25

I am sure you are right. But, speaking for myself, I just wanna play. I do not really want to become a serious musician. What TABS do for me is tell me what notes to play in what order. They timing and rhythm can be worked out because I already know what the song sounds like. Really, figuring out what notes are just by listening to the music is a talent and skill that takes years to develop and it may come natural to some, certainly not for me.

So whatever punishment he feels is waiting for him, is already waiting for him...and whatever he did to have his sins forgive, he can do right after the marriage ceremony - everybody wins!

My experience: You can buy good, cheap fruits from guys standing around metro entrances...1/3 price of what u can get from a store. Restaurants that serve good French cuisine are extremely expensive and not worth the money (unless you can afford it). Paris is beginning to be known for its good Chinese food around Europe I think. Stay away from restaurants in "touristy" places - very mediocre food and very expensive. Crepe was my favorite thing to eat there. Get ready to have a mostly non-French food experience. Paris is something like 20% native French population (who were born in France with French parents). Gyro shops, chinese food, crepe stands are a-plenty. And you won't want to leave!!

good for you. But will you feel that way after you are 30? think about this: avg american with fulltime job works 2,000 hrs a year...at 40 years that's 80K hours. 10 years in prison is roughly 87K hours...if you don't count sleep thats 50K hours (whether you sleep in a prison or your own bed - does it matter?) So you get to spend 50K hours to work out, read books, whatever else they do in this fantasy prison.... or you get to slowly leak 80K prime hours of your life (9am-5pm) Will the 30 year old who comes out of prison with enough resources to fund whatever dreams she might have for the rest of her life be happier....? or will the 30 year old who most likely spent the better part of the last decade and future decades working a full-time job (if she is "lucky")?

Each being best at what they do. She seems to be really good at only producing violinists and pianists. But I thank god you can't become a 'tiger mom' just from reading a book.

This is not true....I have fumbled around for more than a minute before on older machines because the orientation was not the only factor. The port or the usb plug itself was bent a little so even with the right side up it was still getting stuck. Also the color of all the parts were black and I could not see what the right side up was without a flashlight. As I was stabbing the part in the wrong direction I was probably helping to bend the thing a little more and worsening the situation. If orientation didn't matter, I could have spent my efforts on getting the other problem fixed.

This is indeed a great product. But can you use it to write out tabs or sheet music while you play? no. Does it give access to raw data? sadly, no. I think the right direction to go in is open hardware and open software and putting it in the hands of the public to do amazing things. As awesome as this guitar is, it is not only proprietary, but it also uses its amazing technology to internally apply effects to audio - it does not give access to the raw data so applications like auto-tab (or any other app) can be built. Thanks for the link.

Commented by /u/mrreddit in /r/SomebodyMakeThis on January 4, 2011 02:32:18

The Roland Piezo Pickup looks very promising and probably is a great place to start. One think I am worried about off the bat is that the raw data from the strings has already gone through a proprietary algorithm and who knows what info has been lost before the MIDI info comes out. The benefit of what I propose is that A) it will be open-source, B) raw string vibration data is available and a smart enough algorithm will be able to detect slides, hammer-ons (and the like), and bending!! - the Roland products certainly don't offer this....but these are great links...thanks!

Thanks for your feedback. From what I've seen, the Gibson Robot Guitar excels at tuning itself dynamically and changing tunings automatically - that's where the Robot part of the name comes from - there is no interface which breaks down what the player is playing in note form.

I am hoping an electrical engineer will pickup this challenge. The hardware is half of the equation - the other half is the DSP software required to output sensible data for higher-level APIs to use. The whole process, when open-sourced, will yield many cool projects I am sure.

I didn't like Inception at all. Most movies I've enjoyed on an intellectual level (i.e. the first Matrix) have always been the ones that take ideas I already know about, and add a twist, or give a unique take, or take it to a whole new level. This gives a very satisfying feeling of being able to analyze what you are watching - both during and after the film. But unless you are a really fast learner, this usually works with ideas you are already somewhat familiar with. With Inception, I was for the most part clueless about the world I was being introduced to. Like someone who knows absolutely nothing about computers watching the Matrix. Then I am to memorize a ton of rules of how this world operates, and before I am able to digest any of this, they try to get clever with it and take that world to a whole new level of brain fuck by doing advanced things like dreams within dreams. Dude, I am still trying to figure things like what is the role of the Architect...who's doing what now...what did you just say about knowing layouts within a dream?? It was really hard work trying to keep up with what is going and certainly didn't leave any room for me to actually think about anything deeper that the movie might be introducing to me. On top of that there was tons of generic, mind-numbing, uninteresting gun scenes - and about 40 minutes of shots of people placing remote controlled bombs on buildings. Thumbs way down!! Other things that sucked: - The most interesting effects I saw in the trailers had nothing to do with the resolution or the climax of the movie...they were just things that happened and looked pretty. As a counter example, the iconic effects of the Matrix for the most part also happened during critical parts of the movie - awesome!!

I think if both prisoners are 'perfectly rational', they will think alike and cooperate - since essentially they are running the same algorithm. Basically, they know what the other is thinking. It's when you don't know if the other guy is going to be irrational that it makes the decision hard.

I believe the 'save' in 'saving the planet' is a reference to the human race...as in 'save the human race'. There is nothing that needs saving about the planet except us. As George Carlin reminds us - the planet was here before we came, it will be here long after we are gone - the planet will be just fine. amen.

I disagree. Being born with the ability to do calculus does not make you smart. Having the tools to derive calculus is much more valuable than being able to do calculus. Any species who arrives at the scientific method should get automatic membership into the 'brotherhoods of the universe' club.

How can this woman think it is possibly ok to slap someone!? you don't just slap somebody without expecting trouble. If I were the judge I would call it even...and hopefully she learned something from it.

I don't think many people steal to a degree where 'picking the craziest thing' is an issue. Unless you are talking to a group of thieves, you would get better responses to the question, 'Hey Reddit, have you ever stolen?'

I really thought the mythbuster crew would have a little more sense than this and be a little more sensitive to animal cruelty. OK, so maybe they didn't know that the mice were starving and in pain and that they would eat each other - fine...but for god's sake, it is -not- 'freakin hilarious'. Laughter and delight is not the right reaction to have.

From your comment I would have sworn you were a racist - thankfully you explicitly said you weren't in your message - so that helped.

IMO a human right is something without which life would be impossible or extremely difficult. Sure, you can live without an education or access to information, but you will not stand a chance competing with people who do have access. Being alive as a human being is more than just breathing. You have to be allowed to access and enjoy the fruits of what humanity has created and, if you choose to, contribute. Being blocked from such a thing is being denied the opportunity to reach your full potential. And that would be a crime against humanity.

Yeah...in my day blah blah blah...and that's the way we liked it. Step out of yourself for a second and realize that you are becoming the 'old guy' (assuming u r a man). Every generation complains about the new generation and my belief is that the new generation has always pushed things in a new and wonderful direction. The way you feel about texting is how your grandparents probably felt about electric guitars. I always give the younger generation props for being as creative as they are and coming up with new styles of doing things....good for them. (just hope they survive long enough to create the generation after them).

This car is a crime against humanity. To me it represents a lot of what is wrong and vile with the world. All the problems that we have with fossil fuels from scarcity to pollution to war...this car is a big sign saying 'so!?' He mentions how good natured those people were and how if he was driving that thing anywhere else he would have had his head bashed in. If a permanent resident had one of those tanks and clogging up the streets every day...they should expect a lot of vandalism to their property - rightfully so IMO.

There is a name for this kind of logical falacy. Something can't be true, because if it were it would be terrible. As far as I know feeling pain is crucial for survival. There is no reason to assume that fish don't feel pain.

Lets say you were going to be eaten. And you could choose to be killed first and then eaten or you could watch as various parts of your body were cut off, bit by bit, and eatend. Would you flip a coin - after all, what is the difference?

Commented by /u/mrreddit in /r/WTF on May 30, 2010 13:54:17

Not all deaths are the same. Yes, we kill fish to eat them. And if i had the choice between eating vs. not killing fish at all, I would choose eating. But that doesn't mean I would eat it while it is still alive so I can have fresh fish.

I am assuming you have not watched the video. You are absolutely right that 'innocent until proven guilty' is one of the most precious things in our system of justice. Even a video showing a guy shooting somebody at point-blank range is not necessarily an open and shut case - there may be 2 sides to that story. But again, I am assuming you have not watched the video.

For anyone who feels bad for the guy getting killed - what do you think he would have started doing after joining a gang? Plant flowers? I wish more problems were self-correcting like this. But I do wish the guy had the opportunity to see that he shouldn't join a gang.

I didn't see any nets to catch accidents...doesn't OSHA apply here? I'm all for showcasing athletic and acrobatic skills..but missteps and accidents are bound to happen...anybody know of any safety gear that might have been in use but not easily visible? I suppose one could say the same thing about chainsaw jugglers - but I guess there the danger is part of the act. For this, I would think being able to stay on the rig would be a great win...the thought that falling means painful death doesn't add to my enjoyment as an audience member.

It seems to be very common for schizophrenics to hallucinate people telling them to do things against their will. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Abraham was schizophrenic when he heard 'god' telling him to kill his son. Assuming that story had any basis in reality.

But let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. It's true, that bugging a room is clearly out of bounds. But I think every citizen should be allowed to have a camera mounted in their car so they can record a police stop. Some police officers do use excessive force, or who are racists, or are criminals. Citizens have a right to protect themselves. An objective record of the events is good for the officer and the person being stopped - in case one of the parties decides to sue.
