I think I've figured out that the recommended way of plugging an Android app to a SQL db is by going through a web script api. So I'ma make some basic PhP and put it under one of my domains for now, to experiment. Hopefully it doesn't end up being really expensive.
If I had a guarantee, I think I'd give up my life, even my existence, for a perfect world.
I like helping people, but only because they need someone to help them. I don't care who does.
If I could be certain that everyone I care about were taken care of sufficiently, I'd probably disappear.
Well, that probably wouldn't work, cuz I know people would miss me.
I do enjoy people, but sometimes I wonder how much attachment I really have.
How long could I handle isolation before I was desperate for a conversation? Or really, any updates on others' lives.
A divisive pain. Can't live without either, but both together are so polarizing.
I'm only accelerationist on an individual scale.
I don't mind letting people drive themselves into a ditch, metaphorically, as a way of learning what does and doesn't work for them.
I've done that to myself, so I know it's sometimes necessary.
I do my best to help people understand what they want for themselves in life, instead of the lies they tell themselves because they're convinced of things that aren't true. Most of the time, they're not really stubborn, or it's small things.
Plus I don't always know exactly what's going on in their heads. Maybe what they're doing is good for them and I don't know it. That's why I let people do as they please, and only act as a guide for them to discover what they want. The alternative is actually knowing what people are thinking and fighting them to accept it. Way too much effort, at least most of the time.
The thing about getting land for your own country is you have to at least be able to enforce your own laws. I think occasionally about "who could I just buy land from and have it all to myself, laws and all". Probably what's up is that someone has to be around to make sure there aren't just pockets of land where there is no jurisdiction.
It's also important that no one wants that land anyway. Obviously if the US government, for example, wants to use land, even if it's someone else's, they can use eminent domain to say "this is for the good of the state/country".
If it came to it though, I'm curious how much firepower the military would be willing to expend on a rebellious commune before they decided it wasn't worth retaking it.
@Paradox Did you know Sardines are named for the Island of Sardinia in the mediterranean sea?
@Paradox The Kanji for the word sardine are a combination of the symbols for 'Fish' and 'Weak'
@Paradox Thank you for subscribing to Sardine facts:
Did you know sardines are a great source of Omega 3?
Finished the work sim assessment and I swear I don't think I've ever sweat when coding.
Like I coulda spent at least another half hour on that code but I ran outta time.
Didn't help that the first part I didn't properly understand the algorithm for (and I still don't know if I do but it passed most of the tests so eh).
I get partial credit too, so hopefully they're okay with me, but I know for sure what to study if I don't. M
