    Veek's Python lessons in English - feedback thread

    So here's a brief sample: https://mega.nz/file/zMBGyaZJ A longer one https://mega.nz/file/jdgWkIpK I was hoping someone with more fancy audio/hardware might review it and give me some feedback on how things look on a big monitor, or if you can hear background sounds - or if something's off that...

    TV buying: generic 7.5k vs 13k (MI LED TV Pro 4a)

    Room is 15'x8' wide. Stuff should be visible very close and 15' away? Cost and longevity is a factor: need to buy a TV for a small classroom - It must have USB/menu-select. This is the primary means of screening lessons so does anyone have any in-depth understanding of the manufacturing...

    WTB Asian manufactured Foil ESD Bags - no holes, kinks - could someone point me to a source?

    Since this, a lot of websites have sprouted all selling these aluminium foil bags BUT THEY HAVE NO SPEC! BE CAREFUL! 1. For long term storage you MUST KNOW material used PET-48G (gauge) and Optical Density (should be 3.2). 2. If they use vapor deposition then the aluminium barrier will have...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_Czechoslovakia some 14,000 Jews remained alive in the Czech lands.[5] Approximately 144,000 Jews were sent to Theresienstadt concentration camp. Most inmates were Czech Jews. I'm not saying India's a haven for the downtrodden and that you...

    I live in India/Bangalore. Racism is a feeling of superiority and exploitation that stems from feelings of superiority. The idea of superiority is used to justify exploitation. Many Indians are cheats. (me included) Indians aren't a superior cheat.. but sure we do have racists.. a narcissist...

    smarter - no chance, america uses racism as a weapon - we just use it to feed our insecurities. eg: afro-americans are killed to keep them frightened and in line while USA looks outwards/china for exploiting. We don't have the guts to face-up/fight the USA/Russia/china so we enjoy life to the...

    1. It's not civil to suggest that someone is creating a 'mess' and leave. (civility means cOURTeOUS and polite) (courteous means: polite, respectful, or considerate in manner.) Chill here if you like to talk tech. If you are looking for a mess, look elsewhere. 2. Are you suggesting my old aunt...

    which is why I find the whole thing very mystifying: what do they do.. like how do they study and such? I use Freenode like a useful tool to learn things.. there are so many tips people share - I'd have thought the resource was indispensable. Feb 29 17:24:58 <[Tritium]> {**d1, **d2} will...

    India cannot make a CPU so far: think of 1 billion people and you'll quickly realize it's perfect for us as a country. Eg: we could add a mechanism for selecting text and creating topic wise notes-snippets, code-samples. Encryption can be XOR that NK still uses! A low power arduino might be...

    be polite with everyone - we need the practice anyhow. (it trains the brain so we might as well avail the opportunity) also, try to always act positively - we are our own worst enemy.
