About Stackoverlow and some participants

Stackoverflow and some participants in particular are being unreasonable: they like to lecture those who ask questions, especially if you're a newbie. How come they don't realize that it takes me -- the ones who asks questions -- nothing but less a minute to register a new account on a new, temporary email, ask a question, throw it away and register a new account, if needed? "You come here, thus, you're to obey the rules. The rules of Stackoverlow state: 1. First you do a google search. 2. Then you show us what you've tried. 4. Finally, exhausted and desperate, you're permitted to come to Stackoverlow and ask a question....".

Do they have plenty of free time? Or do I coerce some of them to come and give me an answer? No, it's voluntarily. But why do they spend their time trying to lecture me and get me to tell them "Thank you very much your majority, you're so kind that you've come here, I'll remember that till the end of my life and name my son after you"? Why not ignore my question if it doesn't makes sense to them or merely give me an answer? Is that some kind of disease of those who spend too much on forums -- inability to keep silent? And keeping silent for them is an effortful activity?

I can register a new account in a blink on an eye and ask a new stupid question, and do it over and over again. And still there'll be someone wise who'll give me an answer. If not, not a big deal. Yet some of them -- participants -- believe that I crave an answer to my question as if I weren't able to live without it, and therefore they always give me advice which I don't ask them for as if they were my parents or teachers at school and which at best has little to do with my question. Not to mention some of them being strict and pig-headed.

"You come here to get an answer. With your attitude none of us here will want to give you one". Are they idiots or what?

I pretend to appear to be a newbie when asking questions because it's easier to get an answer without having to explain why I want it and what has been leading me to ask it.

React.js isn't fashionable this season. Vue.js is

The head monkey in Silicon Valley begins using a new javascript framework and all the monkeys in India, Europe and Russia do the same.

My project in Assembly language

With the capacity of seeing similarities with and differences from other languages, learning Assembly language is now easier than it used to be a few years ago. I'm working on a project called 温泉 or Onsen. It's a DNS server working over HTTPS. I'm using NASM for it in particular and in general.

Machine learning and black swans


Machine learning is all about prediction based on historical data. Does it take into account black swans -- unpredictable events that occur out of the blue and are completely random and thus can't be predicted? It doesn't. How accurate is machine learning in general then?

Let's take the famous turkey. For a thousand days it's been fed, but on the 1000 and 1st day it was killed, cooked and eaten. What would a machine learning algorithm make of it, is it able to predict it being killed based on the first 1000 day? Not only is it unable to, but also it'll predict, obviously, that the chance of death is infinitely small, if not zero.

My VPN service is somewhat ready

https://murasakinoki.com 紫の木

It functions like clockwork, although it's not completely ready yet and even the name isn't final either. The authentication mechanism is done via a temporary token which you receive on your email, with no password. It's built in Elixir/Phoenix framework.

Update:
The website has moved to omagatoki.co It's pronounced Oooo .... magatoki.
