  1. Comment on Wordle | Game of words in ~games

    Guess a five-letter word in six tries. That simply is what Wordle, the latest craze for puzzle lovers across the world, is about. Josh Wardle, a Brooklyn-based coder, reportedly created this in order to play with his puzzle-loving partner. On that basis alone, Wordle has been wildly successful. A few million play it during the weekends now, according to media reports, a big leap from the 90 who solved it on November

    On the site, though, a clean 5*6 matrix (meaning, availability of six attempts to guess a five-letter word) stares at the solver. There are no letters, no prompts. The first guess is a blind guess, or so one thinks initially.

    The colours that the Wordle grid produces for the individual letters of the word so guessed are essentially the only clues one gets in this puzzle. A letter in green means it is in the word and is in the correct spot. A letter in grey means it is not in the word. And a letter in yellow means it is in the word but in the wrong spot. You have five more chances to figure this out.

    In his earlier job with Reddit, he was behind the ‘Place’ and ‘The Button’ projects. ‘The Button’, introduced on April Fool’s day in 2015, involved the presence of a timer which went down from 60 seconds, and a button which could reset the timer back to 60 seconds.

    How often do you encounter a radicalized kid? Are they a minority or is it an epidemic?

    I was once radicalized and I can relate to what you are saying. I don't know what exact effect memes have, but yeah memes were one of the main factor that kept me there. Memes make it easier to cope with the reality and to stay in the comfort zone, also to forms opinion on things without putting the effort of reading or real life encounters of the situation.

    Im not white but I have a similar situation, my dad is a Hindu nationalist. But as I step out of the bubble my parents had created for me and became more aware of the reality lot of things I believed stopped making sense, there were also times when I saw horrible repercussions of my beliefs like the Christchurch shootings. So, I believe most of these kids would grow out of it.

    I don't know how things are from a student's perspective. But our government is also doing things similar to yours, they broadcast classes through state owned channel (also uploads it on youtube), they have timing arrangement for each grades. But they only teach one subject a day, teachers are directed to clear doubts and check homeworks of their student. Teachers can use any method for communication most of them use WhatsApp.

    Recently due to the flooding and landslides new classes are not broadcasted.

  10. Comment on This is why Indian teens kept spamming Prime Minister Modi’s Instagram with thirsty comments in ~tech

    Link

    “I realise this spam is more about attention than impact at this point, especially since teenagers like us aren’t a good enough vote bank for the government,” says 17-year-old Priya, who commented as a way to unleash her fury against systemic oppression and a crumbling healthcare system. “But we hope to see it evolve over time.” Priya points out that though this wave of dissent via fairy comments is a nascent method that may not amount to much, its main strength lies in how casually hilarious it is. “Humour, especially the dark and absurd type, is the best way to grab a young person’s attention at a time when terms like ‘woke’ and ‘feminism’ are getting stamped with assumptions of being preachy and annoying.”

    Priya is aware that young people like her have been dismissed for being “snowflakes” for talking about issues like injustice, climate change and casual micro-aggressions. “They may not listen to us now, but we are the generation shaping the future, and we’re pissed. This is our way of giving intolerant boomers the proverbial middle finger, mixed with whimsical fairy dust.”

    Some replies are directly going to previously read section. It happened couple of times now, I didn't get notification for these two replies, I thought may be I had my browser running in the background. But it happened again for these, replies. I did get notifications for the replies posted in between the mentioned replies.

    I browse tildes mostly on mobile using Hermit. One can get notifications on your mobile from hermit lite apps by adding a url and a css selector, I used tildes.net/notifications/unread as the url and [div.logged-in-user-info:nth-child(4)] as the css selector. I did get notification (on my mobile) for couple of times but most of the time I didn't so I deleted the web monitor. It should be noted that I didn't know what I was doing. So how do I fix this? :(

    I am somone trying to learn programming on my own. Tbh its pretty hard and boring at start, I started with this book. Half way through it I lost interest and dropped learning programming completely, also lot of people advised me that "if you are not enjoying it may be because programming is not for you". After couple of months I heard about CS50 I rolled in and I liked it.

    I just finished week 7 of CS50 (I took way way more than 7 weeks because of my other works). Along with this I also do some projects over at hyperskill, I don't think "fun" or "enjoying" is the word I would choose to describe my relationship with programming. I hate it sometimes (especially when I had to spent hours looking through stack overflow threads to fix a very minor bug like forgetting a quote at the end). I enjoy it when I get to solve some real problems (like when I created a program to create a csv file of a list of students and their details for my mom).

    I dont know how to explain in English the feeling I get when learning new programming topics. I am not really excited about it, I dont hate it either, If I had dropped programming completely because "I didn't enjoy it" I would've missed out on the things I enjoy about it.

    IMO, you should learn programming however you please. There is no lack of resources if you have an internet connection. I dont know what I should do after cs50 I've seen guides like OSSU, but Im not sure where to start I know little bit now should I start from the start? or from somewhere in middle? I'm probably gonna fuck it up and start some topics I am still not ready for and end up switching courses in the middle. That's just how it is.


    Felleisen et al. give a nod to this trend in their book How to Design Programs, when they say "Bad programming is easy. Idiots can learn it in 21 days, even if they are dummies."

    Is it wrong that I am a little offended by this? Especially since this is from an academic paper.
