      Hey everyone, just watching a very interesting history of Terry A Davis (creator of TempleOS) and around the 30 minute mark there is a list of questions Terry asked to God and the answers he believed he received. I took a look online but was unable to find anything. I don't suppose anyone out there has a link? I'd be very interested to read it. Thanks in advance.

      EDIT: I'm also interested in any links to the art he created (hymns, visual art etc).

      https://www.rosettacode.org/wiki/Rosetta_Code1


      I was recently looking for a snippet to show off syntax highlighting in multiple languages, but didn't want to write that snippet myself in those languages. So after a bit of searching I stumbled across this website, rosettacode.org. A programming chrestomathy2 that has a large collection of tasks with solutions to each in a bunch of different languages, for example all the FizzBuzz solutions. An excellent resource for what I was looking for, and maybe for you too. The About page:

      Rosetta Code is a wiki that aspires to do for programming what the Rosetta Stone did for Egyptian hieroglyphics. The concept was inspired by this list of "Hello, World" programs, and the realization that "Hello World", on its own, tells a new programmer very little about the language they're using.

      Footnotes
      1. I decided to make this a text topic instead of a link since I'm not a fan of explaining the reason for posting in a comment. I think it deserves to be in the topic body.
      2. From Wikipedia: "Chrestomathy is a collection of selected literary passages (usually from a single author); a selection of literary passages from a foreign language assembled for studying the language; or a text in various languages, used especially as an aid in learning a subject."

    10. I want to learn programming. What language should i pick to write cli apps for linux?

      I'm interested in C or Go, but i'm open to ideas.

      I have plenty of sh scripts i created to integrate my tools and system, so i have some experience and i don't want a scripting language like python.

      My first plan is to learn the basics of the language and rewrite some of those scripts.

      I think my first pick will be a script that uses ffmpeg to convert my flac files to mp3 or opus. I use sndconv -opus/-mp3 and it checks if there are flac files in the folder (i only have full albums), converts and puts in a folder named "$artist - $album".

      My long term goal is to make a cli/tui music player like cmus.

      UPDATE: i'm having plenty of success with Go right now. I just wrote a basic version of my music conversion script. It's just converting a music i pass as argument to mp3, but i'll keep working on it and adding functionality just to dip my toes in Go. It seems like a good language and i'm having fun!

      Thanks for all the answers!

      There's no doubt computer science is indeed a science, but what about programming itself? Does it fulfill the basic requirements that make something a science? I'm not an academic, just trying to start a conversation.

      In many ways, programming is like Math: a means to an end. And Math is a science. Like math, programming has several fields with vastly different ideas of what constitutes programming. Because it is applied logic, programming is also provable and disprovable. There are many disputing hypothesis and, even though absolute truth is a distant dream, it is certain that some sentences are truer than others. Again, like Math, Programming has many practical applications, such as finances and engineering.

      Some people consider Math a propaedeutics: not a science in itself, but a discipline that provides fundamentals to actual sciences such as chemistry and physics. The same reasoning could be applied to programming, as nothing more than a tool for computer science. I personally think there's something unique about programming and it's problem-solving methods that can be considered a field of its own.

      What you guys and girls think?
