There's am mistake in the Linux one. Linux is written in C not C++
C++ is a horrible language. It's made more horrible by the fact that a lot
of substandard programmers use it, to the point where it's much much
easier to generate total and utter crap with it. Quite frankly, even if
the choice of C were to do *nothing* but keep the C++ programmers out,
that in itself would be a huge reason to use C.
Yes, what is the reason you have to buy it ? Icing is just an easy mix of ingredients, and I suppose that the powder you bought also had to be mixes with somehting, so I am not sure why the predone stuff is any better ?
My name is Sheryl, and I can certainly help you with your question about Amazon recommendations.
But, first, let's verify your address, credit card number, number of pets in your house (or, if in the wild, you feed regularly).
My name is David, and I can certainly help you with your question about Amazon recommendations.
Your question is about why you received a book recommendation after you purchased: European Gourmet Bakery Organic Chocolate Icing Mix, 11 Ounce - 12 per case ?
I understand that Sheryl spoke with you first, and I'm not surprised she escalated your issue: I know how disturbing it is to have someone question your sanity; it happens to me all the time. And, that Sheryl: well, she's into this "ketosis" thing that I think is a poor substitute for the lithium she really needs.
Marc, I'm not really supposed to reveal this, but, our personality-to-choices profile for you strongly suggests you resonate with a cluster we call "boundary pushers." That's associated with traits like: "question authority," "highly creative," "test the limits."
So, it doesn't surprise me that this book on psychedelics was recommended for you: in fact, nothing surprises me right now because I dropped 100mcg. of really great acid into my morning guava and goat-milk shake, and the moire patterns on my screen right now are turning into a picture of you, Marc.

A few years ago, Amazon got this idea that I would be interested in lots of proposals for gay movies. Well, I am not. I don't mind gay culture; I have both colleagues and friends who are openly homosexual, and that is fine with me. But I don't see that as a good reason for Amazon to suggest gay movies - and anyway, how would they know? I was just puzzled about their ideas about my preferences.
I took several months for me to make the connection. I had bought a sizable pile of DVDs in one big order, and didn't get to viewing the last one for quite a long time. That was an Italian black-and-white "artsy" movie from the early 1960s, the story based on some old Hellenic mythology, with gods and demigods. Those demigods visiting earth wasn't excessively dressed up - that is not the style of hellenic demigods. And they were male. There was nothing in the story in the direction of gay erotics, just that more male skin was visible than in a typical modern US movie. So, says the wisdom of Amazon: Anyone who sees demigods displaying their skin, do it because of the homoerotic attraction.
Here in Norway, homophobics are the outcasts, more or less. Being labeled as a homosexual won't give you big problems, whether it is correct or incorrect. But there are cultures where such a label would be very stigmatizing. It if came out, it could strongly affect the relationship to your neigbours, maybe your work and evening activities (especially if you are, say, a teacher or instructor in evening activities for kids), your spose, ...
If you go to amazon.com to order a new computer book, with your friend looking over your shoulder, and the first thing that comes up is Amazon's six proposals of the day, "These movies might be of interest to you...", in some societies you would try to get that off the screen as fast as possible, and it would certainly be too late.
So I am happy that I am not living in such a culture. Here, I can tell the story, with a laugh, and invite the listers home to watch the movie. Those interested in Hellenic history, or possibly in Italian art movies from the 1960, might accept the invitation, and we would probably have a nice evening together. Maybe enjoying a glass of Italian wine.
So I was wondering about Cosmos BD's Cassandra API and decided to check the Cassandra documentation as the Microsoft documentation is a bit sparse on Cassandra information.
Head over to the Cassandra website and find the documentation.
Getting started is all about installing and configuring, which I don't need as I'm using Cosmos DB.
So the next section is an overview of the architecture, sounds good!
Except that... Todo todo[^]
So maybe something about data modeling? Todo TODO[^]
And what the hell is this "Dynamo"? Todo todo Todo todo Todo todo[^]
Why do I have the Pink Panther theme stuck in my head?

It IS a programming question, but as I do not really want an answer (more interested in flame war and your philosophy) I do post it here...
So... you have to set up in a system some online exams, including date and time of opening an closing... As the system interprets anything stored in the DB (a Unix timestamp) as UTC (good old practice), you send them UTC via the API...
You may be surprised, but it even works... until the move your clock, just we did last night... At that moment the server moves (automatically) and now it adds only 2 hours to the stored UTC, instead of the 3 it added at summer-time...
So in the DB is stored 9:30 UTC, which is 12:30 Local in summer time, but 11:30 in winter...
As we all learned, to store UTC is the best way to resolve timezone changes... except when it is not...
