Basically, I never write WinForms apps. I write mostly console apps, and even when I need to use WinForms, I start with a console app anyway so I have a console for logging initialization problems and such.
And I'm back with a SOTW after a two week break! This week I've got a cooperation between Sol and Blóðtrú. I've listened to this quite a lot on vacation, while going to sleep or when reading LOTR. The lyrics start out with Ymir and Odin, but later I hear the names of the dwarfs from The Hobbit as well as Gandalf. Not sure if old Norse mythology or Tolkien tribute... Anyway, it's rather hypnotizing
The wife of my groomsman is thinking on create an internet shop for her products and yesterday she asked me for help and advice...
1. She will have more or less 50 references. 2. She would like to send the goods by transport agencies. 3. She would like to be able to receive payments via PayPal and also via credit card. 4. She doesn't know programming but is clever and capable. 5. No international sales is foreseen.
What would you recommend?
1. Get this done by a professional and pay whatever it takes to get it done? 2. Use any free tool out there that would make it simple and easily maintainable? 3. Use a paid tool out there that would make it simple and easily maintainable?
I have PHP experience and I could help a little but not spend complete days in this.
In the internet I've seen prestashop, opencart, magento...
But I don't have any experience on that... before diving into this to find information and try to help her..., any hint from anyone that has walked that road before?
Yup. I wanted to check out the costs, compared to other private hire firms, of a people carrier from Heathrow to Woking. Most firms are more than happy to give a quote.
To get one from Uber, I not only have to sign up, which is not a problem, but I have to provide credit card information up front. This is very presumptive that I will choose their service. It's like Waitrose making me buy stuff before they give away a coffee!
They're almost like that King who stood in front of the tide.
I take it back, you can get a guesstimate without signing up, but it wasnt easy to find the link and I are good at googlies. Now I have decide if it's worth it.
I'd say your friend's still pretty safe - odds of meeting the guy are up there with winning a national lottery. (Tell him to quickly buy a ticket.)
Problem with the news today, too much of it, seemingly more on s slow day. ... ohh look, Trump just blew his nose, lets assemble a large panel of experts and discuss his odds of surviving ..., wait, Rihanna seen shopping ... wait, a duck just crossed the road near central park ...
sure - that wasn't the actual intent of the post though, just a 'by-thought' - we can talk about 'odds', but that wont help the families of the ?5 dead (so far) who expected their loved ones to come home tonight
... I guess posting on forums wont help them much either
Whilst we're at it, let's offer our prayers to all the people in London who got run over by cars, who slipped in the bath and died, who died of some disease or other, who died of old age, who sneezed too hard and killed passersby with their dentures, who took overdoses of drugs and died, who were murdered by people who are criminals, not ter'r'rists, etc, etc, etc.
Then let's approve spending another handful of million quid on letting security forces spy on us, purportedly to protect us from the one nutter every few years with a knife, who's labelled as a ter'r'rist.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
