    Absolutely legendary show, and several of the voice actors ended up being huge.

    I've always found anime movies to be better than tv, with some exceptions. The problem with most anime tv, is that there is always far far too much filler, with whole episodes devoted to a gimmick (the notorious beach episode for example), while movies don't have the luxury. A recent exception was Bunny Girl Senpai, which was just incredible despite its terrible name.

    As someone else said, full Metal alchemist Brotherhood is the ideal start for an action anime. For other genres, try the following: http://imgur.com/a/l9A1Z

    Its extremely annoying to try to remember which songs you liked, which means I end up listening to whole albums or EP's, which may have been the point

    Ok so I'm just being an idiot, the rolling function can do addition and subtraction, but not the others, so infix worked for those, while multiplication and division only work for post fix

    Ah I see, I misunderstood. A simple line.replace(" ", "") would fix that no? edit: indeed it does Edit 2: multiplication and division don't work, inputs of "2d1 * 2 1 1 2" and "3d5 / 5 4 5 1 10"...

    Ah I see, I misunderstood.
    A simple

     line.replace(" ", "") 
    

    would fix that no?
    edit: indeed it does

    Edit 2: multiplication and division don't work, inputs of
    "2d1 * 2
    1 1
    2" and "3d5 / 5
    4 5 1
    10" are wrong

    Ok this is bothering me.
    elif token in operators:
    b, a = stack.pop(-1), stack.pop(-1)
    stack.append(operators[token](a, b))
    print(stack)
    never executes

    OK for operators only entries of the form 3d6 12 * are accepted, but if its + or - , 3d6+12 works fine, I assume cuz the other function works with them

    The input "4d6 + 12" throws an error, as does any addition attempt

    Feel free to use any form of notation, the point is more to accept full mathematical formulas

    Its been a while since we did one of these, which is a shame.

    Create a program that takes is an input of the type: "d6 + 3" or "2d20 - 5", and return a valid roll.
    The result should display both the actual rolls as well as the final result. The program should accept any valid roll of the type 'xdx'
    Bonuses:

    • Multiplication "d6 * 3"
    • Division "d12 / 6"
    • Polish notation "4d6 * (5d4 - 3)"

    As a side note, it would be really cool if weekly programming challenges became a thing

    Is this not just the end result of not having enough public transport?

    It has a sustainable user-base among those who care about encryption and the like, but the real goal of encryption tech should be to strengthen everyone, not just those who care. FOSS has always struggled because the people involved are focused not on revenue and DAU, but on the politics, so commercial software always has the advantage, as they think of the customer.

    I guess its not ironic, now that I think about it. I guess I meant weird. The artist himself has nothing to do with printing guns, but the circumstances of stumbling on him were odd

    Signal has almost every feature whatsapp does, with the exception of group calls and I'm sure a few others, But also has long running security credentials. All it lacks is more people.

    I fully agree, but I've always found logic to be better as a collection of singles than a whole albums, although I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who treats him like that. The tracks you mentioned where exactly the same ones I loved. Its worth pointing out Logic does not produce the beats, that would be his producer 6ix.

    The thing that interests me is the massive arguments that seem to have kicked off over this album. It seems every person falls into one camp on this one. Rumors of a part 2 also seem to be circulating
