@becausealice2 Sorry about that .. message is removed @pdurbin actually its been less since the rooms are less active due to the most of the campers moving over to the forum. But since quincy announced there is a DS FCC in the works we might see more.. I don't know
Honestly I think it's hilarious. Gitter is such a specific platform and hook up bots are so far removed from the intended users that I can't help but laugh. It makes me think about the time in the old freecodecamp/freecodecamp gitter channel when I was accused of catfishing. It's so bizarre and random
@pdurbin yeah, I'm friends with a couple crazy cat ladies so my mind always has to contemplate the possibility of someone fishing for cats lol
@mstellaluna The whole time since I first started going to that channel there was a bit of an issue with that, though I feel like it started out about more "there's no one here to help so lets talk about actresses" and I did notice a progression towards "I don't feel like helping, but my friends are here, so..."
Towards the end there was even at least one occasion that I saw of people sharing really crass, sexist jokes and I was the only one who seemed to have an issue with it, where before, people were being banned for that same thing lol
Anyways, @GoldbergData since you're wanting updates on my Node project, I'm relearning JS and am trying to build a web scraper like I did many moon ago here
I feel like it's going to be a lot more complicated this time around, and I haven't decided if I want to do a comparison across Node, R, and Python for scraping. I don't think I do since it is important but not so much specifically regarding the comparison of NLP tools......
I want to collect information about songs on billboard charts, like this. I haven't looked very deep to check for an API, but this is also a chance for me to reintroduce myself to the languages I am working with since I hven't accomplished anything in several months aside from one very basic analysis in R
Okay so I looked around and there doesn't appear to be any openly available API, and looking at the network thingy in dev tools it looks to me (and it's absolutely possible that I'm mistaken) that the HTML is rendered server-side so I can't sneak any data files being sent to my browser
