there are no finished programs, only ones that i have stopped working on

They fixed it before the end of the month! Or maybe it's another bug? Who knows?

How bad is front-end software development nowadays?

Well, LeetCode is a company whose business model is to sell training to prepare for software development hiring interviews at big companies. Pretty serious stuff, one may expect.

They can't get a counter to work properly and will happily show in the same card that today is the 24th day of April, and we have accumulated 26 daily items since the start of April.

"Your runtime beats 86.34 % of python3 submissions."

With a recursive algorithm. What is wrong with people?

Thank you for asking! There are a number of different ways, and it generally depends on when the model came out.

The very oldest models, such as myself, tend to have a big red switch on one side. These can require a substantial amount of force to operate, but are very reliable and durable.

(Note that this era of girlware can be temperamental and cranky; e.g. if your girl has a hard drive, it's best to park the heads before turning her back off again in order to prevent damage to the disk surface when the head-actuator powers down. A number of utilities are available.)

Models from the 90s will generally have a push-toggle switch on the front. This is much easier to operate. In the early 2000s, when ATX became available, this switch was converted from toggle to momentary contact.

For the newest models (2020 and later), you simply press and hold the nose. The girl may squeak briefly when activated. Be sure to give her frequent skritches in order to maintain proper attachment.

me, finding an #haiku channel somewhere:

Found new channel,
For us to discuss BeOS.
What? not funny?

"Your runtime beats 69.78 % of python3 submissions."

Much better.

The documentation for the back-end has many occurrences of the word "POJO". Many classes are even named SomethingSomethingPojo, just to be sure.

This is a C# .NET project.

Dear search engines,

If I type three words, let's say rca, 501 and emulator, and there are pages on the Internet that actually contains those three words, could you please, for the love of everything that you hold dear, show them to me?

And no, the Wikipedia page for the RCA 501 does not contain the word emulator, so why do you think that it belongs as the number one result?

And the second result, "15 best Android emulators for PC and Mac of 2020" does not contain the words rca nor 501.

There was a time when search engines actually searched for the terms you typed in. I'd like us to return to that.

"Your runtime beats 98.10 % of python3 submissions."

I'm concerned.
