  1. The best way to learn IMO, is just to jump straight in and figure it out for yourself.
  2. Fundamentals & basic/starter level projects >>>>>>>>>> getting stuck on a massive project and discouraged. With programming its better off starting from the basics and creating little projects that you come up. Starting on a big project, like your talking about, will be extremely challenging and intimidating, you'll hit more problems than you can fix. You'll end up getting discouraged. If I were you, I wouldn't solely focus on game development because its hard to get into, a friend of mine did a game development course at university, finished it and then couldn't find a job as a game dev, instead he became a Junior Developer at a financial company.
  3. You could loop through the directory and open every excel file and clear that specific cell? I'm pretty sure if you spent some time searching, you'd find something. Aftter 1 search: https://www.e-iceblue.com/Tutorials/Spire.XLS/Spire.XLS-Program-Guide/Cells/How-to-remove-the-value-and-format-from-Excel-Cell-range.html https://www.codeproject.com/Questions/785053/Remove-the-content-in-cell-using-csharp Two very useful posts after a single search. When trying to google how to do a specific task, like what your trying to do, break it down into smaller ones and search how to do that. For instance, how to loop through a directory and find all files with the .xls file extension, then I'd search how to remove a specific cell value in excel in X programming language.
  4. Do some of your own research. Learning your first programming language will be the most difficult. When I was first learning I went with Python because of the simplistic syntax and it easy to follow. I'd highly suggest starting with python, if you jump into the deep end like you want (creating mobile games and mods) you'll get overwhelmed. Start with the basics, then go into the move advanced stuff. I used w3Schools a lot when I started learning. I also used code academy to get my head around the basics. Then once you've got to grips with python, possibly start with C# or Java.
  5. I worked at a McDonalds for almost 2 years. I was a crew trainer for a year of that. Its non-stop. In the down time, your expected to clean up, re stock, sweep, ect... Theres almost no time to catch your breath (During the day shift). I mostly opened so I'd come in at 5/6am to open the store, this meant setting up the front counter and or setting up the kitchen. Turning on the grills, doing the DPSC, ect. I'd normally be the one to do the stock in the morning. So I'd go into a freezer every morning (It'll be around -18 to -20) to get a massive list of things, then do the same with the dry stock. They'd give me a list of about 20/30 items and ask me do it in 15-20 minutes, it would end up taking me closer to 30. In my opinion, the kitchen is the place to be. The easiest role, in my opinion is chicken fryer. Its somewhat relaxed and is the easiest station to learn and master. As I was a crew trainer I'd have to do all jobs, I hated the front counter. During the busy lunch times, some people would treat staff like dirt, sometimes you'd get someone swearing at you for forgetting ketchup, but that was probably just my store as the local area wasn't that nice. Honestly, the kitchen is the best place to be, you'll be a little busier but you'll be able to actually have fun and have a little laugh from time to time. Also the kitchen staff, if its overstaffed, normally get sent home early. Win win. INSPECTION. At my store, we had one coming up and they called me at mid-night the day before asking me to come in at 3-4am so we could, "deep clean" the entire store, the freezer, the dry stock room & the grills. It was hell. The schedule is a joke, honestly @OnionRings try to get on the good side of the manager that deals with it. It worked in my favor. I could write an essay on this. I'd highly recommend finding a different job after a couple of months.
  6. This just seems like an annoyance... Why? You'd probably want to read the API docs on the instagram API.
  7. Look into comptia security+, also you'll need firm understanding of networking.
  8. -Clean the inside -Uninstall any unused programs -Defrag/Run a scan using your anti-vuris -Save up for a new one, possibly a second hand one. Look on ebay you can get a pretty good laptop on there for a good price.
  9. Windows defender is all I use. Don't need to pay for anti-virus'.
  10. the .text property is a string.
  11. Rather than asking it to be done for you, come up with a possible build that you think would be good and then ask for improvements. Put the amount of effort into your question that you'd expect in an answer.
  12. I can't believe they didn't count for a leap year... Bad design.
  13. Stack Overflow, subreddits, or just a single google search would have gotten you some answers.
  14. Whats a girlfriend? Thats exactly what my parents are like though.
  15. People who walk too slow. People who take up too much room on public transport (E.g. The tube) I agree with the majority of pet peeves already posted on this thread
  16. Looks amazing. How long did it take to make this?
  17. IOT = Internet Of Things (Simple google?). If I were you, I'd ignore him and move on. I don't think theres anything to be worried about. Just don't click any links you get from him. Could be an IP grabber.
  18. If you have things that use the internet to communicate with each other (e.g. Hive or any other IOT device) then he could access them. If hes trying to find out your IP via discord, I can almost guarantee he won't know how to do anything.
  19. I mainly use discord, because of the frequent updates/improvements and the majority of people who I play with use it.
