[08:28:26] wasamasa: how do I get from the nested loop to an enumerator taking a target sum and depth?
[08:29:38] wasamasa: I don't really mind hand-coding this, but I'm sure there must be a good solution
[08:33:39] wasamasa: the goal is to do optimization with constraints, the constraint being that the individual terms have a target sum
[08:34:51] wasamasa: like, by writing an enumerator calling another enumerator with a helper argument
[08:46:29] wasamasa: but what I'm really looking for is generic code to create such sequences for any parameters
[08:47:58] wasamasa: 4 and 5 are just convenient ones for a hand-coded solution, anything larger than that becomes hard to test
[06:39:14] wasamasa: nietzschette: this is known as "highlight", just put their nick on the beginning of the message and their client highlights it
[18:55:49] wasamasa: jahpereira: no, I did assume so far that you download bootstrap to not have to pay for pretty decent base styling
[18:59:31] wasamasa: you know, the one you get when hitting the download button on http://getbootstrap.com/
[19:00:32] wasamasa: so, if you don't want to design yourself or shell out some money, the default theme is pretty fine to get something basic going
[19:02:59] wasamasa: well, set up your application, add the css and js to wherever it belongs, tweak the views to make use of the css classes and js blingbling
[19:10:43] wasamasa: web development covers quite a lot of bases, so please don't forget practicing the basics of everything
[19:17:09] wasamasa: I've met quite a few PHP folks who had to relearn everything they thought they knew about web development
[19:18:46] wasamasa: well, it's less intuitive and more that you actually have a chance of just taking any rails project and customizing it to fulfil that pet peeve you've got
[19:21:13] wasamasa: Ox0dea: I've seen two blog posts on the topic and it was nice that you could comprehend them for a change
[21:40:51] wasamasa: nofxx: I use two usually and sometimes spawn extra ones for testing with a clean slate
[21:42:12] wasamasa: as long as I don't use it to run a webserver, I don't really care about the memory usage
[08:49:30] wasamasa: not like downloading gigabytes of books is going to turn you into a rockstar programmer :D
[09:08:40] wasamasa: apparently the english version of this proverb is "What goes around, comes around."
[07:59:15] wasamasa: the reasoning being that if you cannot even get your orthography right, you aren't worth bothering their time with
[07:59:46] wasamasa: I'm being ironic of course as it's clear that what ESR holds in high regard is a rosy depiction of himself
[08:01:22] wasamasa: KINGSABRI: in case you don't have any clue what I'm talking about, http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html
[08:02:59] wasamasa: KINGSABRI: this is not about people themselves, this is about communication with whatever you call "hackers"
[12:30:51] wasamasa: which would inevitably lead to impedance mismatches once you go beyond basic CRUD
[12:31:32] wasamasa: but if you're using your database just for CRUD instead of making the most of relations...
[12:36:40] wasamasa: so, postgrest does actually reuse as much as possible from postgres by going for views and transforming these from and to json
[14:38:17] wasamasa: be it using git, actually understanding code to write documentation for it, finding out what parts are yet undocumented, etc.
[14:38:48] wasamasa: it's why they're programmers, because they have more to show than just a vague desire to improve things
[14:50:27] wasamasa: sever2client: in case you actually figure out how to do all of that, please learn english first
[15:26:47] wasamasa: lagweezle: which is different from being stupid on purpose and pestering this channel for weeks with the worst trolling ever
[13:50:25] wasamasa: lol: https://github.com/brauliobo/less2sass/blob/master/lib/less2sass.rb#L5-L18
[18:57:52] wasamasa: ght: I'm fairly sure python users wouldn't go as far as bothering this channel for weeks with fairly bad, I dunno what I'd call it
[19:57:08] wasamasa: atmosx: I did even go as far as working for three months at the fast food chain with the big m
[20:03:08] wasamasa: you'll be delighted to know then that xml and json databases have been failures in many aspects
[20:06:39] wasamasa: codecodecode123: please don't invent yet another crappy database, use something existing
[08:30:58] wasamasa: Neon: I've heard a similiar argument against FFI, citing that most don't support structs or pointers to them, rendering a good amount of libraries useless
[08:36:49] wasamasa: Neon: this isn't for any serious programming, just to fill up 45 minutes of standing in front of my bored classmates
