I hired a poo from India to build me a website. I got scammed. He started no showing and I got mad, and he got mad that I got mad, and yeah.

I live in the Silicon Valley and i see nothing but poos everywhere and they make me sick looking at them now. I refuse to go to stores where they are clearly Indian owners. I used to like Indian food and now I don’t eat there.

I refuse to take Indian professors(this is not that common).

I feel like screaming “go back to your country” when I see especially a south eastern poo.

I wished I was like before, happy with Indian friends and eating Indian food, but after that bad experience with that scammer I have pure hatred for them, and I hate that. I wish I could be normal again.

Free software is free as in freedom, not free as in price. You can care about the FOSS movement and also only code for things that make you money.

>I prefer to control my own projects
When you write free software it doesn't remove control from you, you still own the copyrights and can do what you like with the software

Free as in freedom and free as in price at the same time is best.

Ever since I started working, I've been completely unable to do ANY private project.
I just can't motivate me to do it.
It feels like working in my freetime and something in my brain is strongly opposed to doing that.

I really, really want to try out flutter for mobile dev, because it could potentially be the right thing for the mobile apps my company wants to write.
But I've been unable to get myself to make anything but extremely, extremely basic programs.

I also have no fucking idea what matrices are.

Basically arrays in arrays. They represent 2 dimensions and you can write their values in a rectangle. Images are essentially matrices with colours as values.

Im trying to read sicp but for some reason the syntax of scheme is really throwing me for a loop. Which im sure sounds weird because the syntax is so simple. Whenever i use the interpreter im fine, but then when I try to write a program in a file it never works. I would prefer to write in files, so that i can do my own little practice problems.

A Matrix is a latin word meaning 'womb' - that is, it contains something in it.
