There has been a lot of talk about the movie ‘Noah’. Most of the talk is about how the movie doesn’t accurately tell the story, or twists the story.
If you haven’t heard of Crypto-Currencies, then you’ve been under a rock somewhere. 2013 was the year of Cyrpto-Currency, Bitcoin and Litecoin took the world by storm. Because they’re both open-source, anybody can modify the source and make their own coin. Boy have they! I’ve lost track of all the coins. In the world of Crypto, Bitcoin is the Gold and Litecoin is the Silver, everything else is an “Alt-Coin” or Alternate Coin. Some have greater value than others, mainly due to a supply and demand exchange.
If you look at our education system from kindergarten to 12th grade. It’s based on learning repetition. Learning how to formulate a math problem, to find x. Reading a book or essay and then, writing an essay or a paper containing a specific number of words or pages. When I say it’s based on repetition, I mean it’s the same process over and over again. Enter class, listen to the teacher talk about something, open book to specific spot, study and then repeat the information you studied back onto paper in the form of a test. The only questions you ask are based on the topic you are being taught.
So, My wife’s uncle gave me a Macbook of his that worked, but the LCD panel was not working, or so I thought. I proceeded to do a full tear down on it, attempting to locate the problem, having found what I thought the issue was, a pinched display cable (which turned out to be incorrect). I took the macbook to the Apple store to see if they could assist, granted the macbook wasn’t in one piece anymore. The Apple rep explained, because I had taken the whole laptop apart, they were unable to service it and suggested I take the computer to the MacStore. Which I happily did, in hopes they would solve my problem.
So, recently I have been doing a lot of coding, both bash and php/html. The other day I was at work and a co-worker of mine who handles abuse complaints mentioned he had to process over 100 domains for something he was working on. I instantly thought about writing code to accomplish it, I asked what he needed off of the domains, to which he responded IP and who owns it.
