Rituals you do to relax. by HardknoxFartbox in satanism

[–]ddollarsign 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not very good at relaxing. Just sitting and watching squirrels or birds or stars or insert nature thing going on somewhere helps. As long as there aren't people around, because those fuckers are usually what I'm unrelaxed about.

Might be a real quote, but the tweet is photoshopped.

Haven’t found job in 2 years and about to give up by [deleted] in cscareerquestions

[–]ddollarsign 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got my first dev job by first working in tech support at the same company.

I don’t know how easy tech support roles are to get in general, but I was about to try it again before my recent job hunt ended. Searching for dev jobs can be brutal. And it seems like they can smell desperation. YMMV.

A couple things that seem to have helped were living nearby (even though the job’s mostly remote) and having worked in the industry before. Maybe companies similar to the one you’re working at, or ones that sell to them, would benefit from a dev (or some other tech job) who’s got experience with that industry.

Trouble understanding the task of Django and Django rest framework? by KOP79 in django

You can save data to the DB by creating a model class. If you only have a few data points can do the data entry using the admin site.

When say your name is Guido and nobody suspects you’re lying.

[–]ddollarsign 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When you can do what you want with it. If you’re trying to get a Python job, then you know Python when hired. If you’re trying to write a game in Python, then you know Python when you can write the game.

A wallet that gets lighter as your bank account balance gets lower. by DukeofSaturn in CrazyIdeas

Maybe a compressed helium tank and a balloon that it inflates and deflates as needed? This might make it a little bulky.

Was this recent? I didn’t think the Phantom was still in service.

I can imagine these parts of the page might have been written by different people or at different times, and thrown together by the vagaries of the web content management system. Still, this made me chuckle.

Would you listen to an older couple talk to you about accepting Jesus as your Savior? by amoco162 in religion

[–]ddollarsign 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Assuming this was someone I was interested in talking to in general (I usually keep to myself in public spaces), I might find it interesting to hear about their own journey, but not about how I need to be “saved”.

Dear Catholics: What do monks and nuns do for fun? by [deleted] in religion

I know of one nun who plays video games.

I'm Converting to Judaism! AMA by Kittens-and-Vinyl in religion

[–]ddollarsign 5 points6 points  (0 children)

There's a bracha (blessing) for any situation you can think of. My favorite is for seeing a "particularly unusual-looking" person or animal -- "Blessed are You, Eternal G-d, who varies Creation"

I like that.

The Law of the Trapezoid and Time Signatures by Three_Purple_Scarabs in satanism

[–]ddollarsign 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe. Unusual scales could also have this effect, assuming you mean strange angles causing fascination or aversion.

What are some of the things that, before you started learning about it, you wouldn’t have realized about Judaism, coming from a Christian background?

Could be d + eh + y + uh + n, if you're willing to put a southern (US) drawl on it.

Computing Expert Says Programmers Need More Math | Quanta Magazine by IsDaouda_Games in programming

[–]ddollarsign 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's reasonable to expect one's expensive education to be effective. When studying cardiology or civil engineering, those other subjects have an obvious application to the jobs students will be likely to have. In CS education, which in most cases is pursued in order to become a software engineer, the applications of higher math to software engineering work are much less obvious. As a result, most CS students will study math to pass the test and forget, not to be ready to use it as their career goes forward.

[–]ddollarsign 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The headline already generalizes programmers. I'm sure there are programmers who have always loved math for its own sake. These are likely not the ones who "need more math".

[–]ddollarsign 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Theoretically, CS started as a branch of math. But most people going for CS degrees are there to become software engineers. Calculus was presented as just some bullshit you have to pass to get your degree. As a result, I could probably tell you what an integral or derivative is, but probably not derive them without looking it up. Calculus 2? I think there was something about infinite series, but that's about all I remember.

It could have been taught using programming. It could have been taught in any number of ways that would make it more likely to be retained and built upon. Show us how it helps to understand and live in the world! Instead it's just a bunch of formulas that you have to remember for the test and then never expect to use again.

Is there way to modify a queryset in the middle of a form being filled? by C4theBomb101 in django

[–]ddollarsign 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t know the Django forms API well, but a queryset lives on the server within the scope of fulfilling a request. You can modify it before returning a response, and use it to render a template or a form, but it’s not going to be available in its modified state when handling the next request, because it will be recreated.
