Could you make a version that I could write something in Fortran-77 and convert it to C#?
I only ask because I used to really enjoy writing in FORTRAN in the old days, but perhaps that was more because of what I was writing than what I was writing it in, hmmm... (An expert system for flight test analysis of jet fighters - whooooosh!)
Not really serious - just wondering.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
My local rag seems to be trying to get readers to fork over money to see content by having some of its pages jump over to a subscription page. This can be defeated by clicking on the stop button quickly enough, so I figure that this is something that an add-on could do.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
1. If pressing "stop" on your browser is enough to allow you to view the paywall content, then they deserve to lose money
2. I have no sympathy for media outlets. The about of click-bait no-news articles that get spammed everywhere is extremely annoying. Why should anyone have to pay to read something that is designed solely to get people clicking on it just to make the website owners more money. You want to sell news, then right some actual, well researched news.
2. As I said, I can't stand the tactics of newspaper websites (in fact it applies to pretty much any form of marketing that tries to pray on peoples stupidity/inexperience to make money).
So although they are not all as bad, the few that are genuine have to suffer the fallout of the ones that I dislike. It's just being lazy on my part for sure, to brand them all the same, but it's not worth the effort to pick and choose.
Yep, they are pretty much the exact ones I avoid. Their click bating articles are terrible. They may have some genuine news hidden among them somewhere, but I have no intention of supporting them while I go looking for it.
I really wish Google had a feature to blacklist certain websites
PluralSight has come recommendations, but I want to know what YOU think. I am not here to advertise for PluralSight and, besides, I do not agree with what they recommend since I have never heard of some of the technologies that they mention.
For fun, I have had a look at what Plural Site and Udemy has to offer. I ran a search on Udemy for "Certification" There seems to be a lot of practice certicationi exams for "Scrun Master". I did not konw that was even a thing. Is it?
Speaking of Udemy: maybe I should just take a few corses there and put on my resume that I took the course. I wonder if Udemy offers some sort of verification that one takes a course.
