@lucas1 "Track 6 - Henry's wives"?
(this is a track that includes some very brutal cuts)
What you did there. It was visible to me. Don't get ahead of yourself though,
@Polygeekery that actually sums up my experience with most programming tutorials. They either are just wrong (won't compile), show the easy parts and leave the hard parts out, or don't explain what parts of the tutorial are universal and which should change if you're really doing a project for real.
@Benjamin-Hall I found an even better one at the same gym. Seems some of the treadmills have a different version that sorts the channels alphabetically by the abbreviated name (ignoring the number completely). Except when it doesn't--the channel "Bay News 9" was near the end of the list. :Wtf:
@Benjamin-Hall We only used it in school because it made our Physics lessons easier. You don't really need the
d/dxnotation if you're staying strictly one-dimensional.
yup, as long as you remember to include time as a dimension (although we usually used the dot notation--which I have no clue how to reproduce here) for time derivatives).
@r10pez10 That belongs in the nerdy jokes thread, as knowledge of calculus is integral to understanding the joke.
It's probably my STEM privilege speaking, but isn't that common (enough) knowledge?
The notation? No, sadly not, at least over here in Germany. Our mathematics courses at school only use the Lagrange notation for derivatives (i.e.
f'(x)would be the first,
f''(x)would be the 2nd and
f'''(x)would be the 3rd derivative). The Leibniz notation is usually reserved for university courses.
That's strange (to me at least). We used both notations relatively interchangeably in high school, college, and grad school. As well as the fun Dx notation for total derivatives.
Status: figured out why VS2017 was breaking on install. It was looking for packages in the ProgramData hidden folder. Somehow, some of the packages and directories it was looking for were there, but not the ones it needed, nor the versions it needed. Thus, it figured it was a bad download, and barfed.
Solution: deleted that subdirectory. It then installed fine, pulling the packages from the offline install directory.
@Jaloopa I'm reasonably familiar with MVC concepts since I built an app for IOS. How they apply as far as the individual frameworks are concerned (and what it wants things to be named so that the automagic parts work.....) is where I'm totally clueless.
Looks like your connection to What the Daily WTF? was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
