ImportError: No module named RPi.GPIO
 
There are 1577 unanswered questions (94.3208% answered)
 
Ideone probably doesn't have RPi.GPIO in its known modules.
 
No, not that, I have that module in.
I just posted it on ideone so you could see it
sec,
It has to do with 'sent'
The complaint is a syntax warning name
Line 23 and 24 are probably all that are relevant.
 
Why are you worrying about touching global? No other subroutines are using sent.
 
12:07 AM
If I just do sent = False, without that, it creates a local instance and complains that I used the local instance before declaring it.
I use global to make sure it knows I'm referring to the global one...
Though, this is all based on a few things I've read on SO.
I could be completely mistaken about implementation, which is why I beseech your knightly prowess, hehe.
Exact error, just for reference.
 
if not sent:
				funk_socket.send(bytearray("play\r\n", "utf-8"))
				global sent
You are using sent in the if statement before you actually use global sent.
Try moving global sent to the very beginning of your function.

A: Should it matter if I use bootstrap.js or all the 14 separate .js -files? Trying to build affix behaviour

TruthYou idiots honestly have no idea what the bootstrap javascript file actually does. I mean this is terrible programming. Everything sucks nowadays because nobody knows honestly what things do and nobody is documenting anything.

Dat username
 
Does that fix anything?
 
Yes, that's exactly what I needed. :D
Lol, thank you so much. I've been trying so many other things for over an hour.
 
No problem.
 
12:14 AM
Not sure if ninja, but definitely a knight. Python scope is definitely interesting-- will take some getting used to: e.g. non-local, global keywords seem like they should mean the same thing but don't.
Thanks again!

Welcome to StackOverflow. Please read and follow stackoverflow.com/help/mcve. We need you to describe your problem clearly: you've posted your code, but you haven't shown the output you have so far, nor what you expect to see at the problem point. "Any help" is far too general for this site; we're not a tutoring service nor a coding service, and code reviews belong on the code-review page. You may need to add some useful print statements to illustrate your current sticking point; that's fine with us. :-) — Prune 18 secs ago
 
Did Duga say that because I said "try" or "posted"?
 
She said that because the comment says "code review"
 
@Duga except we're a little more than a "page"

It wasn't a reply to you. You weren't pinged.

just a coincidence
 
Duga posts these comments that mention "code review" from SO so no one incorrectly refers someone to post their question on Code Review.

1:00 AM
Got an exam to take. Later.
Done. 40 sec for a 4 question exam.
 
Wait what?
 
I had a 4 question exam, had 12 minutes to take it, and finished in 40 seconds.
 
What exam has 4 questions?
 
Mine.
A communications exam on the Semiotics theory.
 
Lol, that must've been easy. :P
 
1:05 AM
Yup. Open book too (I used the PowerPoint).
 
Oh lol
 
Now that I'm a junior, everything is open book.
The freshman and sophomores have it the hardest. Even the 1xxx classes are often harder than the 3xxx classes.
 
That must suck
 
shrugs I've only gotten a B in one class - by less than a percent. That class was a mess - we had to retake exams like 4+ times because they were quizzing us on the wrong material.
 
Wow, lol
 
1:07 AM
I might get an A- in one of my classes this year (limit for an A is 95%), but I'm on track to get A's in everything else.
 
I've been a straight A student for as long as I can remember. :/
 
Nice. I got B's in Calc, Advanced Physics, and Advanced Chemistry my last HS year.
Otherwise, I've always gotten A's.
Must be something to do with programmers ;)
 
So what are you majoring in?
 
IT Management. They don't offer SE online.
My parents say I should get a Masters, but I'm not sure if I want to - school deadlines are stressful.
 
Are you pursuing to be an IT guy or a programmer?
 
1:10 AM
I'm minoring in COMM.
And, I hope to be a programmer. They have all the fun.
Huh, 50 minutes until dishes time - should I study or play?
 
Not sure. What's more boring for you?
Also, COMM?
 
Studying, generally because I do it so hard. COMM == Communications.
Want to play a game with me? bejofo.net/ttt/15167127
 
I guessed it was that, wasn't sure. Yeah, I'd say play if you're ahead of your class, otherwise, keep going! :)
 
Well... My brothers were exposed to Chicken Pox earlier this week, and I haven't had it yet...

No, it's just a side effect of working on several projects in different languages at the same time.
@CaptainObvious UWYA'd for lack of context.
Like, knowing how to solve about a particular problem in language No1. by hard, thinking you can do the same trick in language No. 2 and writing unreadable code in the process.
Different languages have different constructs.
Switching between those goes wrong every once in a while, as it just did with C++/Python.

It's basically I don't know about how android works with drawables
maybe it's a in-memory graphical object, like in flash with as2 with movieclips
in that case, caching is bad
you'd get major slowdowns as stuff piled up

@Heslacher See, there's an odd thing in life....
That picture:
That's my cousin in there... ;-)
 
@rolfl really ?
 
Time for a CR meeting with @rolfl's family
10
 
that ^^
 
The story behind that picture is complicated, but, during th 2010 world cup, a brewery hired a bunch of locals in South Africa, and gave them tickets to the one game, on the condition that they all wore colors, and dressedup in uniform.
 
11:30 AM
@rolfl really?
 
Oh, they got quite a problem with that.
 
Too bad I don't happen to know any of them
 
So, the truth is, those "dutch women", are actually africans ;-)
 
lol
 
yeah, my cousin spent a few hours in jail, was released without charge.
 
11:31 AM
That's not so nice
 
Budweiser (thanks to Youp van 't Hek no longer available in the Netherlands) had a beef with Bavaria, alerted the FIFA and hell broke loose.
Those girls just got caught in the middle without doing anything wrong.
 
So @rolfl which one is your cousin ?
 
2nd from the far left (blonde).
She has a significant online presence.... let me find a different, publicly available picture.
 
You should introduce me ;-) but I guess my wife will complain :-(

@Heslacher Well, you could always ask her stance on it...
 
11:34 AM
 
It's probably as bad as actually doing it though :P
 
@rolfl If you want me to explain my comment about file reading let me know, I was pretty scant in my explanation on the post
 
@Heslacher I assume your wife isn't reading The 2nd Monitor like @rolfl 's is?
@rolfl You're sure she isn't Dutch? Could've fooled me.
 
@Mast Like me, she's really mostly Norwegian.
 
Explains a lot
 
11:37 AM
How do you think I got my name ;-)
 
I thought that was a French joke
 
You mean Lear isn't an Afrikaanish name?
Or I'm just confused :P
 
Guys I know this is not a proper question for code review but if you people understand my question or problem you will try to help me out of this problem like @Sourabh rather than you start passing out comments against my question that this is proper or not, I am sorry guys. — Dami 49 secs ago
 
My mom is 100% norwegian, and my dad 100% british
Anyway, the real point, is that the backstory on that particular photo is much more interesting than you may realize.
@SuperBiasedMan It appears to make sense now. I have deleted my answer. So, in python, the stream is not reopened for the line in file structure.... and the file is only read once?
The assumption is that the file has to be in the same order as the outer-loops of the indexing.
 
The Pythonic way to read a file is to use open with(path, mode) as file_var
 
11:50 AM
And there's the deviation
 
Hook a reader to the file_var and go for index in reader on it.
 
Yeah, for line in file just starts reading from the stream wherever the pointer is. It's not reopening the file from the start. I'm not sure if OP misunderstood that? Because their code still works and relies on that happening.
Well with open(file) as file_var doesn't actually affect how the file is read, just makes sure it gets closed.
 
for part 2 codereview will be a better place — sam2090 58 secs ago
 
OK, so the file structure must have a very precise layout, which, I guess is OK, just so long as it is clear, and documented, etc. It is not clear from the post that the structure is as well defined as it needs to be. Probably works because the structure is right, but still, it's concerning.
 
Which is why you usually hook a reader to it, like a CSV reader
 
11:53 AM
Yeah it's very poor practice and not clear in the slightest.
 
@Mast You have little idea of what's going on here, or are you just being a peanut gallery?
 
I'm trying to be helpful, as someone who often writes Python. Probably not working out too good.

@Mast ^^^^ Hook up a CSV reader to that ^^^
 
The CSV was just an example of-course.
 
Yeah a CSV reader would probably help a lot. I haven't used the module much so I didn't want to try recommending it
...and I had a lot else to say.
 
12:01 PM
I realy wonder why it is damn winter here already, it's way too early
 
Where... want to go there
 
The Netherlands... why would anyone want winter?
 
because hot sucks
 
^ that.
then again it's cold-ish at my place too, so no reason to go to the netherlands
 
Everyone wants the weather they don't have.
Anyway, time to go review some lunch. Later folks.

Q: Why are my two javascript objects behaving like they have different scopes?

KjetilNordinI have two separate jsp pages. in both of them, I define a page variable, in the uppermost level of the javascript. Then I set the variable, by parsing an incoming json string. Both of them appear perfectly as excpected, when performing an immediate console.log, but one of them is once again und...
