"Off Topic" Code Discussion from Q8 Thread.. (code discussion not related to the Q8)

I dub this the Official “Off Topic” Code Discussion Thread for Code discussion not related to the Q8.

Code discussion & info is very interesting…… even to the uninformed such as myself .
It would be a shame if it were buried in the Q8 thread… never to be seen or found again most likely. :person_facepalming:

So here is a platform to let it all hang out, thus promoting & preserving solidarity in & on the Q8 Info Thread

Hopefully there will be more participation here than on the Off Topic Q8 Automobile Thread… Daily Driver vs. Street Car

Let the posting begin………… :+1:

I think that is all for now.
Thank you for reading, and
have a nice day.

Lol this cracked me up teacher


echo “Hello world!”

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
printf("Hello world!\n");
return 0;

#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main ( int argc, char *argv[] );
int main ( int argc, char *argv[] )
cout << "Hello world!\n";

return 0;

program main

implicit none

write ( *, '(a)' ) ' Hello, world!'



def hello():

print("{:s} {:s}!".format('Hello', 'world') )


if ( __name__ == '__main__' ):

hello ( )

:open_mouth: …… Why Joey, I am shocked & dumbfounded at your reaction…. I have even teared up. See… :cry:

Do you feel proud you brute?? :person_facepalming:

I would mark your post RUDE…. but alas, after the trials & tribulations of just trying to survive out here in “Dark Territory” the last few days…… I cannot even work up the energy or desire to even locate the dreaded Rude button, much less click it.

:open_mouth: … Do those come with instructions for dummies Mr. Scott?? :wink:

I hope so because I’m clueless as well teacher. Mr. Scott your coding has flew right over my head, sadly this is not too difficult when computer language code is involved!

Good old C, that is some time ago for me!

Hey JA, I found this…. Coding For Dummies
….it might have some answers in it. I don’t know enough to even have a clue. :person_facepalming:

The title even seems above me, but I looked; there was no “Coding for Stupid People”, so i guess this will have to do. :wink:

I don’t care about being able to control the Space Shuttle or anything like that. But I’d like to know a few basics…… very simple basics at that …… of how it works and why. Since I know exactly O (zero) about it. :wink:
And at the moment I have a bit of time to devote to reading up.

I am gonna see if the Library has it and I’ll let you know.

Teacher, from your posts the last couple of days, you seem to be a little agitated, how come?

A friend of me always tells me when im irritated “put on your [imaginary] teflon coat, nothing will attach to it and everything just glides off”

Thanks Yokiamy, I like that…… :wink: … Imaginary Teflon coat. :beer:
But honestly, I’m not agitated at all…. seriously.

Some of my opinions have differed from some other peoples is pretty much the bottom line.
Someone & a few more have been marking everything I post as RUDE
But hey… I am good with that. As I am typing this my RUDE score just reached 30 0f 10 …… :smiley:
To me that is utterly ridiculous as well as laughable……. :wink:

Heck, go back and read what I have posted. You will be hard pressed to find anything at all RUDE in it. Differing opinions yeah, but as far as I know a differing opinion is not rude. :slight_smile:

When I have said something I have said it in a straight forward manner so as to be crystal clear about where I stood and what I thought.
I think some people like the watered down version of things where it is sugar coated & all pc…. fine.
They won’t find it from me however, I say just call a spade a spade and lets the chips fall where they do.

And trust me, I am not saying I am perfect at all…. cause I am sure not, BUT this has reached the stage of extreme humor at this point. :smiley:

Yeah, now I had been joking around about Dark Territory; as to make a joke about every single post I made getiing marker Rude for a couple of days. Because to me…. that is exactly what that was and is………… a joke.

Anyway, that’s all. I’m good honestly, and thank you for asking. I have just a little less than zero actual stress or agitation about anything that goes on here. There are much more important things to consider at the moment. :wink:

Take care……… :+1:

Oh yeah, this is long; but you asked. :smiley:

Well, let’s toast to that then. Today I have a glass of red wine though. Cheers! :WINE:

^ I wonder what will happen if I type :WINE:

(edit: dangit, no picture of a glass of wine showing up, like it does with beer. Well, I learned something about a code-thingy then)

:smiley: …. Amen brother!!! :+1:

Here… beer mugs will have to do………… :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

Probably a little “Off Topic”…… but oh well, I started the thread so all is well. :wink:

My sincerest apologies to you Yokiamy.
It does appear that my reply to you, in Post #15 above; was indeed consider rude by at least one person…. so far.

Sorry, I was just trying to answer your question. :person_facepalming:

I’ll go sit in the corner for a few hours now……………

Haha thanks Teacher, yea coding for stupid people would probably be more up my alley as well!

I hear ya’ JA. :smiley:

I am going to the Library & check it out if they have it…. just to see IF I can learn to do anything…… anything at all. Big “IF” but as long as I don’t screw up my ‘pooter’… I’m good with trying to do something. :wink:
