I like #c++ because it adds a new level of challenge to simple tasks (like assembling a user interface, file and network i/o, etc). It's like getting out your favorite childhood puzzle and cutting each piece into 5 smaller pieces, so you can partake in the nostalgia while working on a task suitable for your adult mind.

+Savannah King Norton I see. Well good luck to you if you choose to learn. Feel free to use me as a resource if you ever want to learn--I know first-hand how daunting it is to learn it alone (often the hardest part is figuring out what is the correct terminology for your Google search). I really like helping people learn this thing that I enjoy.

Peace to you.

I'm fixing some old code today, and it's all comically bad. Here are some highlights: http://www.weberc2.com/2014/04/03/so-i-saw-this-today.txt

The question doesn't seem to have any answers. So maybe:
No Go!

This is how I imagine the Sharepoint team at Microsoft when somebody asks them about "web standards" and the reports that IE isn't even the most commonly used browser on Windows systems.

Christ on a bike I really hate Sharepoint. It's like Windows ME in web form. Whoever approved this atrocity should be fired. Out of a cannon. Into the sun.

Git, you really suck. This is the fifth time this week that I `git add -A`-ed something, `git status`-ed it to confirm my changes were added `git commit`-ed my changes and `git push`-ed them to origin, only to find out that some changes to some files didn't make it. Seriously, you suck.

+Amos S Yup. Those are all good suggestions for coping with problems resulting from the use of poorly-conceived tools. ANd of course, the best option (if circumstances permit) is to use Mercurial or some other sane DVCS.

Hello, I'm new to machine learning, and I'm looking for something of a "Hello World" tutorial to practice the basic concepts. I've Googled all over for an answer, but I haven't been able to find anything. Does anyone know of such an introductory example?

Please and thank you.

Machine learning is a different thing to different people.  My spin on a "Hello World" example would be linear regression.  If you're already familiar with that then move on to generalized linear models or other classification models.  This is basically what Andrew Ng covers in the ML coursera course mentioned by +Toby Dunne  and +Holger Wenzel .

Ok IT, you win. I'm not getting anything done today. No productivity for me!

Introduction
I'm Craig. I love learning things. I enjoy playing guitar [badly], amateur photography, reading, writing, attempting to wakeboard, tinkering with electronics, and designing and developing all sorts of software (especially user-facing software).
