Today I cursed at git. Which is just a normal day I guess?

From what I've heard about how hard it can be to use git, it sounds perfectly normal to me.

Today I found the reason of an annoyance I have with Netflix, and it turns out the reason is even more annoying:

If you are in the US, you can also manually arrange the order of the TV shows and movies on My List from the Your Account page. To do so, navigate to Your Account and select Order in My List, then select Manual Ordering.


So since I'm not in the US, I'm not allowed to order my list, and Netflix keeps arbitrarily reordering it for some obscure reason. I really don't understand the rationale behind either
  • reordering the list automatically: does Netflix think to influence what I'll choose to watch from the list I've selected myself? to what end? is there a financial gain in that somehow?
  • restricting a convenience feature by region ???

I'm gonna try and find a browser extension or some userscript to help with this...

That does seem like an odd restriction.

The arbitrary reordering might actually come from some sort of unordered set (via a hash of some value or something), so once in a while (new episodes in a series maybe?) the hash values will change, so the order will, too.

The restriction by region might be because some of the UI strings that have to do with reordering might not be localized into other languages. Or maybe the US version of the code is different from the other regions, and there are plans to roll out the new code into other regions at a future date.

But it isn't localized to my language...
Your second point could be true, but as far as I can tell, reordering has been available for quite some time.

I didn't know about it, but I haven't worried about things like ordering.

Sorry Netflix is doing things that don't make sense.

It's mostly fine, I just get easily annoyed at simple user interface nuisances. Mostly because they're so simple.

I'm learning how to use git. I can understand why people don't really like using it, but also why it's really useful.

I found this site today, and I realize that to most people it isn't much more than a way to make letters look weird. Since I deal with multiple languages, though, the "Show Unicode Character" tool will be pretty useful to me.

But is it more useful than team foundation server? Not really, and it's way more complicated and harder to use.
I'm kinda okay with it using TortoiseGit now. But everything takes more steps than it should.

Yeah, I find git a bit impractical too. Like sometimes I'll edit some Python code in my IDE and then commit and push for convenience and pull in a remote server that's only accessible through SSH; then something comes up and I change a tiny bit of code from SSH through nano and forget to push that. Then I continue coding locally, push, SSH, try to pull and bam, conflict. Must stash. Must rebase. I still don't really know what I must do, even discarding uncommited/unpushed changes is a bit of a pain.

But I always thought people who actually learned it had it covered and I was just 2 lazy 2 properly learn.

If I may suggest a topic for discussion: AI! What do you think about it?

I've convinced my research supervisor to tackle a bit of AI in our next projects. It won't be anything Skynet-like (yet), just measuring abnormal conditions and generating alarms on smart water meters for now, but should be p interesting.

That sounds like it'll be a fun project. AI is interesting, but it isn't something I've gotten into much. The closest I've come to AI (and, admittedly, this is pretty far from actual AI) was programming the logic into a tic-tac-toe game so that the computer player would never lose. That was back in high school.

AI is one of my favorite things since ice cream, but I'm mostly interested in videogame AI.
I think it's the field where the most progress can and should be made in modern video games.

I know you mean something else, but it reminded me of MarI/O and it's amazing:

That's cool. I took a course in machine learning called biological inspired computing, it's really interesting.

There are plenty of coding tutorials on the net, if you want to learn. I'm not sure I would start with Java though. I did, but I find Python to be easier to learn and is a lot easier to apply in real life.

I have python downloaded, although I tried it and didn't like it if I remember correctly.

I've tried Video and Written Java tutorials (probs a few in total).

My main problem is I forget all of it if I dont keep interested, so whenever I get bored, when i come back I have to relearn everything (HTML is a bit easir, I still remember some of it.)

I dont know what I wanted to be when I grow up, I thought for a while about being a Game Dev, but realised I dont have the patience for coding, or any of the traits.

Lately I kind of wanna do something creative. (iamgine i pronounced that period as PERIOD)

what I mean is something like making a Book, or a TV Show, maybe A MOvie, or a comic (sorry for crappy caps lock)

idk codings not my way, I still find it slightly interesting


sorry for off topicness, dont respond to that blabbercrap

anyway, if I had anything to put in i would, but you guys are like smart (actually tbh MY IQ is like 140 or something so good to say the least)


anyway Im done filthing up this rooom, you can find me everywhere else Lol

okay sorry for weirdness and stuff

bye :P
