2 odd things about cron tasks

1) A cron task won't trigger unless you add a new, empty line in the end of the cron task list file.

2) Cron might not always be able to find an application by its short name, without its full path that is. Say, "ping". Namely, in a cron task you better use "/usr/bin/ping -c 3", not "ping -c 3" Even if you can call "ping" in the terminal with no failure by its short name.

Kaizen Japanese - 改善日本語 - is almost finished

The website has almost, although not completely, been finished. Design or css-wise I like it more than the previous version. It's built in Elixir/Phoenix and I plan to switch to Ruby. I'll use a simple framework or rather gem called Roda because it's drastically simpler and more lightweight than Rails and even Sinatra.

What languages is this?

This looks like Clojure or List. Except that it's.... Perl 6. Yes, Perl 6 can be extended so that it looks like a completely different language.

Perl 6 is an awfully powerful and difficult language.

Processing bitcoin payments by myself

At all bitcoins payments are processed by myself, namely, there's no third-party involved there at all. It's almost finished and is being tested at the moment.

Thus, it's very well possible not to depend on anyone when it comes to bitcoin or almost any other crypto-currency. And this is stunning.

30% of all words in an average video on youtube about IT stuff is "so"

 so.... so.... so.... so... in between each sentence.  so.... so.... so.... so... so .... so...

What are they all sewing? Aren't they aware of variety of other helpful words such as therefore, thus, in this/that way, consequently, as a result, hence that can be a great substitute for "so"? They're not direct equivalent of "so", however, they're pretty similar to "so" to be used instead of it in many situations.

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.
