Oh dear, the internet is dead.
I'm trying to figure out how to correctly dispose of things in Ninject.
It doesn't seem to be working sigh.
I can't tell whether anything works until it does work, if you get what I mean, and Ninject components and everything they reference are living and living and living.
From what I've been seeing, I need the register/resolve/release pattern.
Ninject is, apparently, supposed to handle that...

Convention question: When referring to folder/filenames, which is more standard (where [] denotes the contents of a string variable):
[Root Dir] & "\" & [folder1] & "\" & [folder2] & "\" & [filename]
[Root Dir\] & [folder1\] & [folder2\] & [filename]
[Root Dir] & [\folder1] & [\folder2] & [\filename]
8:35 AM
no. 2 imo
trailing slash makes it clear it's a folder
and nobody prepends slashes to a folder
Cool. #2 is what I've generally been using so far.
+1 definitely append trailing slash
the exception to this is in REST urls, where you don't have folders, you have "resources"

I wish (but I don't know if I want) there was front-end development which didn't have a super-speedy execution flow
Angular immediately does all the things. I can't say "stop, I gotta load this thing first before you can display these elements"
or maybe I can but it's a lot of work
React does that as well
the result is having to handle initialization everywhere?
The trick is to make your UI layer synchronous
Asynchrony in UI really causes headaches
9:49 AM
yes but... I need to call my rest api for data
Yes, but you can still have a synchronous UI in that case
Use a container component that 'wraps around' another component that handles all of your REST
I think this question needs to be asked on another community on stack exchange. http://codereview.stackexchange.com/VatsalSura just now
Have the presentational component be dumb and just call callbacks/receive information
That's what we end up doing like all the time
and it's annoying as hell
<UserListContainer> // Calls the API
  <UserList isLoading=false users={users} />
or something like that
9:51 AM
add in certain issues with flow, and you have to sometimes wait a single digest cycle before you actually have the stuff you need
and you're back at null checks again
yes, the digest cycle is bunk
so much angular.isDefined
it's so rubbish
angular component kinda help with that with their lifecycle hooks
then again, I don't know what a "slower-execution-flow" system would look like
i.e, you know that $onInit will always have access to bindings
9:51 AM
I can imagine a really slow one
I think having container components handle asynchrony and orchestrate child ones is the best solution
where you have to manually initialize your children
but that'd be even worse
because boilerplaaaate everywheeere
const LoginForm = ({ onSubmit }) => ...
const LoginSection = ({ isLoading, onSubmit }) => <LoginForm onSubmit={onSubmit} isLoading={isLoading} />

class LoginRoute extends Component {
  render() {
    return <LoginPage isLoading={this.state.isLoading} onSubmit={(credentials) => this.handleSubmit(credentials)} />
This is how I'd handle asynchrony
just use dumb components and have it all handled in one place
If you need re-usable "smart" components (like an auto-complete) then you do the same thing, you just use the smart component and treat it like a black box
also yes the above is react but it works with angular components
anyway, there's some open source game (forgot what it was but I think I'll stumble upon it again) that was planning to use react-redux so I guess I'll take a look at its source if I see it again
see if that's any better than angular
react-redux is pretty cool
it does force you to take a more disciplined approach to state, though
and you really don't want to use it without normalizr or some heavy normalisation of your data

instance construction throws exception, 100% guaranteed.
instance method is not used in constructor and is not overriding another method
thus it can be deleted without issue

@syb0rg Can you somehow put the dependency for autotools into your side, and do what needs to be done?

@Pimgd Personally I agree that 4 spaces are better than 2 spaces, but if there is a coding standard that says 2 spaces what then? (drupal.org and one place that I have worked).
Then you'll have to deal with that
There are various ways of dealing with it
... just about any conflict resolution strategy will do
@pacmaninbw Use zero spaces untill they start crying. Then go back to 4
such as throwing a tantrum, running away, accepting it, bargaining, hostility, trying to convince others of your point of view, you name it
I set the tab key to 4 spaces in all the IDEs I use.
2:30 PM
I suggest accepting it if possible... after learning the reason why
I use 4 spaces <- rebel
you mean rebel
I accept whatever the documented coding standard is, can't fight city hall.
Says who?
Greetings, Programs.
2:34 PM
Greetings, user.
One of the things I like about Scala is that it uses two space indentation as its standard for source code.
... and what ever method you use to deal with the situation, well, if it causes a problem for someone else (like the rest of the company) then they'll have to deal with that problem
monking, humans
again, the list of options mentioned earlier applies, but more interesting highlights this time around are firing the troublemaker or giving them crappy tasks to do
So yeahhhhh pick your battles
@Dex'ter Monking
2:37 PM
if you can live with 2 spaces instead of 4 and they seem to have a reason for it (and thus not easily gonna back down) then you just have to accept it
(But yes, my answer did have an undertone of ohbtw-standard-indentation-is-4-spaces-kthx)
Hopefully the reason is not that it would be easier to see their 19 nested loops :p

reading papers on human intelligence; when you stumble across snark like...
> Intelligence is an almost unalloyed good when we look at correlations in the real-world for income, longevity, happiness, contributions to science or medicine, criminality, favoring of free speech etc16. Why is it, then, that we can find quotes like “the rule that human beings seem to follow is to engage the brain only when all else fails - and usually not even then”
@N3buchadnezzar The 19 nested loops is what I'm always worried about.
@pacmaninbw that's nothing. You have to see how it's like to see another 19 nested if-else blocks in those 19 loops
Had to update the answer to fix some indentation errors. However I do not like the style of that answer
It sounds a bit harsh and is basically "Here is what you are doing. It is wrong. Try this instead"
The style is ok

@Hosch250 I thought Mat'sMug had used Ninject?
@pacmaninbw Can you use tabs and just set tab length to 2 spaces? If not, then you'll just have to live with the standard and/or campaign to get it changed.
@Zak Yes, that's the obvious answer, the problem is reading the code in the first place when you hate it.
@pacmaninbw You mean the code was written with double-spaces? Well then, it's up to you whether you want to go through and change the whole thing.
@Zak But how are the 19-nested loops supposed to fit on screen if he changes indentation to 4 spaces?

@syb0rg Usually how it is. With internships your pay is your pay. It rarely changes until the next opportunity.
@syb0rg Zak is correct. My summer internship lasted 15 years, part time the first year.
Well this is bizarre.
Someone is using my email address as the return address on a bunch of spam.

@syb0rg Unfortunately, that's how it is in the world right now... Tuition is a bitch when you have to pay for it, but over time your hard work will be noticed and you'll start getting paid more
Ah, yeah. Tuition is expensive here.

@EBrown Probably just random. Someone, somewhere, somewhen, filled out a form with the name Emma Fletcher and my mobile number. I get about 2-3 calls a week trying to sell "Emma" various things. Mostly ambulance chasing.
@syb0rg What's great about an internship is having experience on your resume when you graduate. Also when I graduated and got my full time offer, it was the third highest in my graduating class.
@Zak Mine are people sending spam from my email address.
@EBrown Time to nuke that email
@syb0rg It's my business email, from my personal domain name.
That's what bugs me about it.

Q: Phishing Project Refactoring to Use a User Object

Trojan404Continuing on my quest to make sure that my application is developed strong, securely, and efficiently, I've updated my code as suggested in the previous question. To start, I've implemented a User_test class (to be renamed once it is full implemented and designed). I have not yet added value ve...

They've been sending spam from their servers, with my email address.
@syb0rg Welcome to the world! My sister is a sophomore in college at Purdue getting paid $28 with a housing stipend. I'm getting paid $18 and I'm graduating in a year. It ain't fair but you deal with it.
Granted, it's easy to tell it's not me sending it.
My SPF records are all in order.
But still, not cool.
@Trojan404 18$ lol?
@N3buchadnezzar USD
3:16 PM
However salary must always be seen in relation with taxes and living expenses
My rent takes about 80% of my income so :p
@N3buchadnezzar Make about $1000 every 2 weeks. If I was living on my own, I'd be screwed but I live with my parents right now
@N3buchadnezzar where on earth are you living?
@syb0rg The way to make money from an internship is by converting it into a job offer. Either with the company you're interning with, or by leveraging the job experience and/or references and referrals into an offer somewhere else.
my rent takes up 1/4, with council tax that's 1/3
@DanPantry Norway
3:18 PM
@syb0rg You can also replace "job offer" with "contracting gig".
"Will write LOLCODE for food"
If you're going to be in school/Uni for a while, that would probably be more feasible.
@CaptainObvious that's a good looking question there :P
Just asksed my first question on programmers ^^
I just need to find a line of work where I get paid for solving the rubiks cube.
Do you get a badge for getting an answer with -10 votes accepted?
@DanPantry Last time I checked, yea.
@N3buchadnezzar No, you do get a badge for getting a good answer on a negative scoring question though.
A: Account-creation program

sulaimaanmiskinhello ivont to play minecraft so i m creating an account thanks for help

@Mast Did you see the mad libs python question?
well, let's hope for a better answer
3:34 PM
@N3buchadnezzar Nope.
@Dex'ter Of-course you should be using OO in Python!
@Mast yep you should. But my question was: when
When in doubt, do it.
3:37 PM
@pacmaninbw Goed all-right until you start writing Ruby. Ruby wants 2.
*scratches head
hot potato
@Mast this app it's not like the usual: "Oh, I have an account, there must me a bank, a customer and so on. Let's create classes for each of them"
so it didn't come naturally
3:38 PM
@Dex'ter Yes. Do it.
Just do it.
Stop complaining and write OO Python.
It ain't C.
Use classes already...
well, at least you can't write OO in C
@Dex'ter Wrong
not with that attitude you can't
You just have to implement all OO stuff yourself
@syb0rg So basically build C++
3:39 PM
yea, well create structures instead of objects
@N3buchadnezzar exactly
@N3buchadnezzar In a way, yes
Q: Get directory permissions for all directories in tree

Michael Brandon MorrisI have made a program that given a directory, will get the permissions for that directory and all sub-directories. The output is stored in a string that can be easily written to .csv. Each permissions entry is given its own line. The path is displayed first, with each directory level split into s...

I am coming for you @Mast, one vote at a time.
@syb0rg I thought you had the x64 Win version working?
3:56 PM
@Mast Yep, just whittling out a few build bugs
I can get a build, but it required a bit of hacking downloaded dependency build stuff
So I'm working on making that process more automated
That would be great, yea.
I still have a x32 Win device as well. Let me know when you want to test it.
@Mast Just so happens I'm working on solving some PortAudio linking issues, maybe this will also fix that Ubuntu problem stuff you were having yesterday
Also added some libtool dependency stuff, still need to work out some kinks: github.com/syb0rg/Khronos/commits/master
