I wil check now @Hijerboa
@Hijerboa it gives you a possible infinite loop error
Albert Cardona II
@daddycardona
Sep 09 2017 00:16
@Hijerboa all you have to do is add this // noprotect
anywhere on the place
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:18
@daddycardona yep! that fixed it. Thank you!

@daddycardona
Sep 09 2017 00:24
Yes what was happening is that it thought you could possibly be making an infinite loop so you had to do that, well that is one solution out my way now too lmao
@Hijerboa
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:26
@daddycardona yeah... it wasn't exactly the most efficient algorithm I've ever written....
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:27
@daddycardona did you finish up the algorithm challenges yet?
Albert Cardona II
@daddycardona
Sep 09 2017 00:28
I didn't even pay attention to it and deleted it because I want to try on my own, now I have to redo the pig latin one because I did it wrong lol
@Hijerboa
no @thekholm80
I am redoing pig lating because what I did was satisfied the needs of the checks but did not realize what a consonant cluster was so when I looked it up I was damn back to the drawing board lol
@thekholm80
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:30
ah, yeah some of the challenges are not worded the best
Albert Cardona II
@daddycardona
Sep 09 2017 00:34
well I didn't know what that was it is basically more than one consonant next to each other lol
aRtoo
@artoodeeto
Sep 09 2017 00:35
whats up fam!!! quick question. should i get the total of cid from this algorithm challenge entitled Exact Change
Albert Cardona II
@daddycardona
Sep 09 2017 00:35
So now I am trying to figure something else like possibly using an array and all these other methods they suggest
what up @artoodeeto I don't know yet lol
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:37
i don't remember the pig latin challenge
wow, 23 lines of code in my solution
i cringe when i look at my old code
Albert Cardona II
@daddycardona
Sep 09 2017 00:39
it basically take a word all lowercase and if it starts with a vowel add way to the end and consonants from the begining before a vowel cut add to the end and ay lol
Henry
@GitHub-Henry
Sep 09 2017 00:45
@thekholm80 it's interesting to look back on old code. it's like, wow, what was i thinking
Kyle Holm

Sep 09 2017 00:46
I wish younger me would have learned the importance of meaningful variable names sooner
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:47
@thekholm80 foo is the only variable name necessary
simply add numbers to the end of it if more than one variable is necessary
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:48
lol
Albert Cardona II

XP is one of the greatest OS windows ever had but I really like 10
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:56
aww yeah look at that react trend rising!
I switched from 10 back to 7
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:57
I honeslty would still use XP if not for it being horribly outdated and unusable in some ways
Henry
@GitHub-Henry
Sep 09 2017 00:57
@thekholm80 never left 7
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:57
I switched from 10 to ubuntu because microsoft
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:57

Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:58
never tried it. Is it much different from Ubuntu and mint?
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:59
ubuntu is based on debian
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 00:59
huh you learn something new every day then
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 00:59
it's the more "user friendly" debian lol
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 01:00
might be worth considering firing up a VM with Debian at some point then
Kyle Holm
@thekholm80
Sep 09 2017 01:00
if you use the console at all, it will feel similar
Nick Cleary

Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa

Sep 09 2017 01:04
I don't game and I use to like 7 but I think 10 is a perfect blend of 7 and 8, I also don't like unbutu or mint or even red hat for that I prefer windows and microsoft products
Nick Cleary
@Hijerboa
Sep 09 2017 01:05
@daddycardona If you want stuff to work, windows and MacOS are good. But if you like to tinker and not sign your soul away to a company, linux is good

isn't that what vms are for
so all you do is a roll back
Nick Cleary

Never have to reinstall windows if you don't use windows

thats a reserved word
similar to window

let ohStr = "Ohhhhhhh no";
let ohRegex = /h{3,6}/;

let result = ohRegex.test(ohStr);

it return true but how to get false?

I want than more than 6 "h" not pass

@gpiliponyte that feeling is common .. i do that too...
"impostor syndrome" think is called
@AndreyAzimov u could add aditional check.. for 7h's :)
if have 7h's .... return false
Andrey Azimov
@AndreyAzimov
Sep 09 2017 16:41

like let ohRegex = /h{3,6}^.*/; but this is not working 😀

/h{7}/
@AndreyAzimov use 2 conditions

@AndreyAzimov
Sep 09 2017 16:47
hmmm
I need check 3-6
Moisés Man
@moigithub
Sep 09 2017 16:48
something like ...
if (condition1 === true) and (condition2 === false)
cond1 is 3-6
cond2 is 7+
which can be written like
if (condition1 and !condition2)
NOT :point_left: ! operator
=== true is implicit

yah I've seen that one... I just hate regex...
took the CodeSchool course on it and it finally made sense.. at least the regex logic.. it's just linking it to js to get it remove, return, change values is always a nightmare for me
it's like I just can't grok it

yah same with me... never use it. always forget everything i learn in it
i did like the CodeSchool course on it.. it was good.. but that was over a year ago.. now when I contemplate regex in the quiet moments it's all dancing bears in my head instead (i.e. nothing)

I hear ya though @DarrenfJ I can get it to match perfectly, but half the time it won't actually execute and I don't know why. The last time I tried it on codepen it just plain broke my code, but when I copied/pasted it to the fcc console, it worked perfectly...

@DarrenfJ
Sep 09 2017 17:32
i think the goal thing was suggested in podcast i was listening to at the time
i finished the 500 brownies around Xmas last year and the beat was rumoured to be released so i thought I'd wait til the beta before finishing up the projects/certs...
then when they got rid of the help button I thought why not finish projects.. cause not so many people were coming in here to get help..
how long does it takes?
I started July of the year before but my goal was to only do few exercises each day..

i've personally used outside learning material and only did the projects

Sep 09 2017 17:35
when i started fCC still had the links that referred to Codecademy courses and external resources.. and i did like 80+ exercises a day and was close to completion of the curriculum then.. but then they added a bunch of stuff to the be the present one.. that's when i flipped to doing it one or two a day

@AndreyAzimov in terms of a job i've worked in IT as a QA. BA PM for several years.. my undergrad is in mech Eng but was in robotics and control systems
@icybears it is pretty comprehensive :D but when people used to come and ask they often didn't know that you only had to complete the * projects and algos to get the certs..
i think Quincy's goal was to build up an independent set of learning material for absolute beginners...
the original map was a linkfarm to other courses.. and you checked off the steps as you completed them yourself
Saber I.
@icybears
Sep 09 2017 17:38
right, but if it's too daunthing and not straight to the point, people usually won't finish it

@icybears I would say the fcc curriculum is very good, I like how you have to struggle through it. I didn't even know what code was 3 months ago, and I now have a pretty firm grasp on JS at least. And I learned to think like a programmer.

@Ellyria it currently renders everything in my <p> tag as if it were (not surprisingly) text, so instead of an icon loading it just loads the actual text for the icon instead of inserting like html

True or false?
var x = 3;
var y = 8;
!(x == "3" || x === y) && !(y != 8 && x <= y);
I'm guessing true, but haven't gotten the answer yet. The point is not to put it into your console but to figure it out.

Tiago Correia
@tiagocorreiaalmeida
Sep 09 2017 21:48
and to run something with nodemon
you have to do it instead on node app.js
you use nodemon app.js
not sure what you have there im a bit new to that aswell

Adel
@AdelMahjoub
Sep 09 2017 22:00
try this, maybe without the ul padding-right and th body margins it will work
body {
  margin: 0;
}
ul {
  padding: 0;
}
Tiago Correia

Sep 09 2017 22:01

Adel

@tiagocorreiaalmeida

Tiago Correia
@tiagocorreiaalmeida
Sep 09 2017 22:02
do I really need go into float or is there any other way?
I saw that float:left would do it
Adel
@AdelMahjoub
Sep 09 2017 22:02
@tiagocorreiaalmeida yes or as @moigithub suggested
Tiago Correia
@tiagocorreiaalmeida

Tiago Correia
@tiagocorreiaalmeida
Sep 09 2017 22:02

@tiagocorreiaalmeida set the width to 23% it will work too
24.7% will work too, 302.312 vs 306px
Tiago Correia
@tiagocorreiaalmeida
Sep 09 2017 22:09
yeha but I wanted them to be exactly one close to another no spaces
float solved it
Adel
@AdelMahjoub
Sep 09 2017 22:10

Hi guys, im getting this error on my laptop: "no bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key" also my HDD is not detected in Bios, so maybe someone knows how to solve this problem (laptop is lenovo ideapad 300)?

if your HDD isn't detected you need to look at that, see if the cables are fully plugged in. If they are the drive mightve went bad
