Q: For loop to compare a date I am looking for with a trending hashtag date

MHorvI am trying to write a for-loop in Python that will compare a date with the date of a trending hashtag. If the dates match, the code will return the hashtag.

enderlandAwww yeah. WOoooooooOOOOoooOOOOOoooT! PARTY TIME. Check out that domain name and logo! Thanks Stack Exchange :-) If you see any problems anywhere, please leave an answer to this question so we can track them.

@Heslacher uh oh
That seems like a bad idea, imo
Ooooohhh I like that!!
No, its a good idea. They shaped their scope and made a complete new make up. Until now everybody who read "oh, programmers" thought that this would be the place to post each programming question´ how off topic they would be didn't matter.
Actually wait. Imo it looks and feels better, so yea, nice.
@Heslacher yeah Ikno, my biggest concern was/is same with any name change: seo issues and slight user loss due to that
Happy to see them have a fresh(ish) start, it's sad that the site had become kind of stale, but I can kind of see why
Honestly I'd like to see more cross-pollination between CR and SE Software Engineering
Damn, they have the same acronym as Stack Exchange :\

Can anyone tell me, what will happens, when a static synchronized method is called from 2 different threads in Java?
Does it blocks the second call to wait till first one finishes?
Because here the static members aren't bound to instances, rather to the class
any inputs from any of you will be appreaciated :)

@SimonForsberg ha, not yet - but it should work
Sounds interesting
And when you have done everything I might convert it to Java/Groovy and steal use it in Brainduck.
I imagine at least that if you make an AST of it, you could find ways in which it could be improved.

Q: Displaying live 12 hour time in html - no date, with AM and PM

Jael PerezThe closet thing I could find was Displaying current date and time using JavaScript and HTML time tag - I just have a few questions in regard to customizing it. I have no experience in coding so all help is very much appreciated. I'd like only the time to be displayed, no date. As in "1:07PM" (w...

@CaptainObvious Was thinking for a moment that it would be without Javascript, then that would be a challenge

There is nothing wrong technically with omitting parenthesis, it's a matter of opinion. You might have better luck with the rest of your question on codereview.stackexchange.com. — meagar ♦ 32 secs ago

Is it acceptable to modify a loop from within itself if all I do is return; after that?

@JoshuaLamusga Could you provide some code to show how you mean?
Sure, something like
for (int i = 0; i < someContainerSize; i++) {
   if (i == 50) {
That's just a rigid example, of course. My code doesn't really remove something at a fixed and known index.
@JoshuaLamusga Well... I don't see what would be wrong with that.
Even though it could perhaps be done in other ways...

@SimonForsberg Alright. My usual method is to "cue" all the indices or values to delete, then remove them after the for-loop. Alternatively, I can reverse the for loop to start at the container size and count to 0, then increment i when I remove something at position i while traversing the loop.

Anyway, I thought maybe it's bad for maintenance reasons. At least, I think I should comment not to continue; the loop or anything since it's delicate code.

Q: Invert-range operation in a circular vector

nbroI implemented a invert-range operation in a (logical) circular vector. A circular vector is a vector without a logical starting and ending object, or, equivalently, the successive element of the element at the last index of the vector is the element at index 0 (similarly for the previous element)...

Q: How to well format ruby code; functions without parameters and others
