  • Thought process behind a programmer? (More info below)?

    Best answer: The thought process behind a programmer is to break stuff down to their basic object level that way bits can be re-used and plugged together in different ways to give different results - possibly a good example is to look at a vehicle...

    Best answer: The thought process behind a programmer is to break stuff down to their basic object level that way bits can be re-used and plugged together in different ways to give different results - possibly a good example is to look at a vehicle...

    A vehicle is an object and start thinking about what every vehicle needs....

    class vehicle {
    wheels
    frame
    engine
    steering
    brakes
    seats ;
    }

    then think about different vehicle types and how they all use this basic class to "extend" on to e.g.

    class pushbike extends vehicle {
    wheels = 2 ;
    engine = pedal-powered ;
    steering = handle-bars
    }

    class car extends vehicle {
    fuel ;
    wheelbase ;
    steering = wheel ;
    }

    and then

    class zafira extends car {
    wheels : 4 ;
    seats : 7 ;
    frame : astra ;
    wheelbase : extended ;
    brakes : disc ;
    }

    class robinreliant extends car {
    wheels: 3 ;
    seats: 4 ;
    frame: reliant ;
    wheelbase: normal ;
    brakes: drum ;
    }

    class zafira16 extends zafira{
    fuel : petrol ;
    engine : 1.6l
    }

    class zafira20 extends zafira {
    fuel : diesel ;
    engine : 2.0l
    }
    so we go back to the basic vehicle and we see what does every vehicle have in common - well all vehicles usually have wheels, a frame, engine, steering and brakes but none of this is defined at first.

    It's only when we differentiate then between things like a car, bike, bus, truck, ferry (and actually just thinking about that a ferry would have wheels: 0), plane, etc... and then you extend from the basics to either make a car or a push bike - a push bike's engine would be the pedals you turn, where as a car would have a more defined engine, a car has added attributes such as fuel and a wheelbase, a car's steering is usually a wheel where as a push-bikes would be handle bars - and then finally at the specific model stage you start filling in even more information a zafira, robin reliant and a porsche 911 all share the same basics from the car but now we're getting more specific information about what actually makes that car different - like a robin reliant only has 3 wheels (note I didn't define wheels as 4 in cars because not all cars have 4 wheels!), a zafira has 7 seats, all of them have very different frames, and then we break it down even further by what type of car it is - e.g. a petrol zafira 1.6l or a diesel zafira 2.0l with both those cars there is a lot of similarities between the two they're both built on the same frame, same extended wheelbase, same number of seats, etc... but the main difference is the engine in the car - so with this we can produce either a zafira1.6 or a zafira2.0 just by changing two variables rather than keep having to redefine each variable. The other thing this comes in handy for is say for example tomorrow Vauxhall decided that all it's zafiras were going to be built with 8 seats instead of 7 - well to fix that they go to the original definition of Zafira (having 7 seats) and change it to 8 - that then copies through to both the zafira1.6 and zafira2.0 (btw I've mainly used zafira's in this example because I own one!)

    Best answer: Hi, this problem can be due to multiple components. Some are simple to fix but for others you may require professional assistance.
    1. The problem could be to do with a faulty power plug/wall socket. Change your the power wall socket that the charger is plugged in to.
    2. Make sure that the charging cable is plugged into the wall/computer properly.
    3. Check both ends of the charging cable. Make sure nothing that you can see is damaged. If it looks damaged, you'll have to replace it.
    4. Check the charging hole of the computer. Make sure that the charging pin isn't damaged or if it's blocked. If the charging pin is damaged, you'll have to take it to a professional. Macs don't have charging pins, so make sure that nothing else in the charging hole is damaged if you have a Mac. If there's something stuck in the charging hole, use a toothpick or something else small to remove the blockage. Try not to damage anything internal while doing this. If the blockage is too hard to remove, then take the computer to a professional.
    5. Check the battery in your computer. If it appears to be damaged or faulty, you'll have to get it replaced. If it looks ok, then remove the battery then reinsert it.
    6. The charging cable may be damaged internally. If you believe this is the case (you won't be able to see), then replace the charging cable.
    If you don't have any money to get your computer repaired professionally, then you can do some research to find out how you can do it yourself. I would recommend websites such as instructables.com. Instructables have plenty of tutorials on how to solve the problem yourself.
    I hope I helped. Good luck.

    The last time I asked these questions, everybody ignored them . I asked these questions so people could answer them, not ignore them . Sometimes when I'm using my computer, it'll freeze, and I'll get a caption that says "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue ." . This caption features buttons that say "Continue", "Debug Script", and "Stop Script" . What does this mean ? What do I do when this happens ? By the same token, sometimes my computer will freeze, and I'll get a caption that says "Not Responding" . Can I get a repairman to come in and change things around somehow to where these things never happen again until the end of time ? Thank you in advance for your answers .

  • Do you think the creators of Snopes get a lot of death threats each week from conservatives? They don't like having their little circus...?

    Best answer: Not really. Right now, the conservative strategy seems to be to keep the bubble intact, and make it as rabid as possible, aka agitating the masses - if this isn't fascism, it's starting to really smell of it.

    Best answer: Not really. Right now, the conservative strategy seems to be to keep the bubble intact, and make it as rabid as possible, aka agitating the masses - if this isn't fascism, it's starting to really smell of it.

    The conservative crowd just generally doesn't care about things like Snopes.
    Full of stupid eggheads talking about egghead stuff.

    That crowd happily eats its lies for breakfast, noon and dinner. Our best bet is to educate the average person on what conservatism is, and why it is now clearly an urgent problem for all Americans (who have not been turned into zombies).

    Misleading the public for decades is not an exercise in free speech. It is a fraud of enormous proportions.

    I've noticed that recently, a lot of videos are like >10 mins with the youtuber just go on and on about irrelevant topics and then near the end, they would talk for 2 mins about the actual topic that they put in the title. It's getting annoying and I've unsubcribed from a lot of them. A lot of talented youtubers that used to do interesting content are now just vlogging and talking about their daily life. Why is that? Is it because they're copying the talentless viners that are flooding into youtube and all that they do is vlogging because they have no other interesting content to put out?
