  1. A lot of people disliked this video I made 2~ years ago.
    Idk what they were expecting cuz I did what the title said:

      Inb4 it was smol peen Linux lads hating on the Ubuntu based distro 

  2. Prolly get a blue ray drive but I'm quite content with my PC atm. Storage couldn't hurt but I guess I'd want to have Ethernet but that's a network thing.
  3. Guru.com is another good site to supplement @mariushm's reply. I've heard a few people getting work from here on the forum but it may be against forum rules but I don't think the mods enforce it as it's not particularly harmful. Also Discord also has a wide variety of communities. I hang out in some game development servers every now & then because I like working with games. I'm quite sure there's some for general programming & python. There's quite a few servers for different technologies/APIs too.
  4. I used to think @DildorTheDecent posts way too many status updates. I think his record was like 6 in an hour from what I know. 

    “You have 8 notifications. Dildor the decent has posted a new status update” 

     

    I started looking at them again & I think I need to scroll through all the ones I missed. It’ll be quite the marathon weekend...

      Yeah. People who only use the forum for status updates are lame jerks.

    Solenoids

    I work in a paintball store & there's a type of marker called the "Autococker." This is a very complex paintball gun that uses air to make all these mechanics move back & forth. About 10 years ago a company called Planet Eclipse created an electric type called the "E Cocker" where it uses a type of solenoid that looks like this: Basically air is always flowing through the middle port & depending on where it's moved, air will flow out of the front or back hole. This was used to replace another part called a "Three Way" which looked something like this: The piston directs airflow from the middle input to the output in the front or back. More information if you're interested: http://magman68.tripod.com/id2.html I was interested in working with solenoids to create my own paintball guns using an Arduino as the micro-controller. Could anyone point me in a direction to learn more about solenoids? I want to direct airflow & air pressures of 50-400 PSI. (Autocockers work in a variety of pressures as they need to be tuned & also have multiple air pressure regulators.) If you could also give me any advice on how to power a solenoid without killing batteries that would also be cool. Someone was telling me I needed to use a capacitor, diode and a mosfet to drive the 6V solenoid or I'd kill my 9V battery very quickly. I may need a resource on general electronics. I only have formal education in theory behind electronics flow, not how to use any components. If you throw me a link to a textbook on amazon you used in University, that would probably be the resource I may need to be looking for.
  6. So my statement stands true.
  7. Pro tip: as long as the money coming in is greater than the money going out, you’re good.
  8. Fallout new Vegas mass effect 2 titanfall 2 Skyrim when it came out. and the real game of the decade... SUPER MARIO BROTHERS 2! I’m not really excited about many games that came out. Especially not from the second half. Doom & arma 3 were pretty good but not really über cool.

    Python IDE

    Hey, I'm on Windows 10 64 bit. I am doing a class with Python & used IDLE but I hate it. Without the syntax highlighting & prediction, programming is a tedious chore. Anyone recommend an alternative? I like Visual Studio when using C#. Is there something similar for Python? Thanks!!
  10. What about other calibres? Or should I not buy firearms made in calibres they weren't originally designed for?
  11. I thought the frame & top of the gun would handle most of the recoil, not the bottom frame. Do you recommend any specific makers of the 1911? I heard a lot of bad things about modern 1911s because of their shoddy quality. Resetting was quite difficult on the M&P shield. I love the 357 revolver because I can hit the target every time & it's very easy to reset.
  12. I'm looking to carry this. It would be required to be concealed carry however the law is written that "as long as your clothes hide it, it's concealed." So if I wear a sweatshirt or something that's a little longer, it would be considered concealed. I'm also okay with the under the armpit holsters. Additionally, I'm 6 feet tall so my body can deal with a slightly larger tool & my job isn't super active. I like a lot of pistols. Most of my experience with different models comes from airsoft. The shape of the 1911 & P226 are very nice but the 1911 has a very limited capacity, is expensive to shoot & the P226 is definitely out of my price range starting about $1000 USD. I can see what you're getting at. Personal preference & requirements for training. Of course not. Not what I'm using airsoft for but I think you see that already. It's mostly getting to terms with the motions. IE "The gun is shaped like this. The magazine release is here. The sights are here." Going through the motions with the stress of other people having guns. Not me & a bunch of paper drawings. Airsoft isn't really isn't the focus of my post & it seems like you kinda figured that it's a supplement. I'm looking at having my first gun be for self defense. My house already has a shotgun we use for clay pigeon shooting. I'm not particularly worried about anything happening but I might as well start practicing so if I become worried, I won't be in a panicked frenzy. Everyone starts somewhere.
  13. The trigger shoots & the magazine loads the projectiles. I held the 19 or the 17 gen 3 I think & I didn't like the finger slots. The Glock 19X is nice & big that fits in my hand nicely. The glocks vary in many different sizes.
