Not bad, took yesterday off, though spent the morning planning out how best to move forward
back at it today, though not feeling particularly pressured at the very moment
you?
I think I’d like to give slack a shot, and i want to try paired programming

By what do you mean slack? It's a chat app like gitter.

yeah just watched the intro video, i thought it was more, though still looks good :D
gitter and groupme are what i’m active with currently

Not just anyone can join a slack channel and immediate start chatting without some admin finagling. When choosing a place to put MontCode, I looked at slack, but it is not straightforward for new people to sign up. So annoying. There is a philly dev chat room on slack somewhere, I can find the link at some point later. A lot of things can be programmed to integrate with slack, but so can gitter. Gitter is just newer so doesn't have as much integration already created. I chose gitter because it's closely tied with GitHub. Anyone wanting to join MontCode should have a GitHub account so don't need some extra log in. Also, it's the place FreeCodeCamp has decided is the chat hom and FCC is the core of MontCode.

yup, i wasn’t at all saying i thought something was wrong with gitter, nor that montcodes place on gitter is less than ideal; i only brought up an interest in slack because a: i see it references in employers “good to haves” sometimes, and b: i thought it had paired-programming in mind
now i see it’s just another chat utility with some company-minded features and assortment of app integrations
still cool, but completely disconnected (for me) from any discussion pertaining to anything related to montcode

xD I was just sharing my experience with slack :p as you said you were interested.

cool, yeah i really want to try paired programming though
it’s another thing that employers seem to want, and i think i have a huge learning potential from it

Remote paired programming is a very different animal from in person paired programming. Just fyi.

Jul 31 2016 17:48 UTC
yeah, i read about it a bit, but nonetheless
i might even just find some youtube videos of experienced programmers going at it in javascript, just to see what i learn from it
though ill have to find time for that, where my attention can be devoted to a video…maybe while eating

Ha. Yeah. I always have to speed up videos xD

I’m reading this article right now and i’m a little disconcerted by my lack of knowledge related to the terms used. I imagine that lack of knowledge is obviously directly related to my inexperience, but alas largely due to me never being around other programmers. :goat:

HAL9000 was reset to the last backup I took in May (Doesn't get changed often so I don't back much xD). Seems to be behaving much better now so I don't think it was the SD card. ( @dcpking ).
JavaScript is sooooooo huge.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 31 2016 17:53 UTC
yeah, i’m getting much better with my knowledge of the language, but the terminology used between developers is still largely foreign to me
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 31 2016 17:53 UTC
Tho that is an Eric Elliot post, and I would trust anything JS written by him.
Follow him on twitter. You'll get knowledge... fast....

Even if you don't use twitter... make an account, follow a few big names just for the exposure to terms.
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 31 2016 17:54 UTC
yeah, i suppose i should begin integrating twitter into my social hub
actually, i should integrate into a social hub in the first place xD
Lily Romano

Jul 31 2016 17:54 UTC
I stick interesting articles that get posted on twitter into instapaper when I can't read them right away. Then on the "day off" usually Saturday, I go through instapaper.
You can usually tell when as I link dump on here and Facebook :p
Gonna update HAL9000 to the newest released version of OpenHAB etc... wish me luck. He lives up to his namesake xD

to update node.js (npm), can i just download the installer for the newest version and let it do its thing?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jul 31 2016 19:58 UTC
OS?
for OSX (*nix, etc = e.g. Not Windows), I would recommend looking into NVM
Eric Phy
@SimplyPhy
Jul 31 2016 20:01 UTC
yeah i looked at it
tried to install it but as usual i suck at git
i don’t know where to install it for example
forewarning: any effort to assist me at the moment would likely be vain, as I’m about to have to get offline
Lily Romano

actually, if you know really quickly:

installing over should work most of the time as far as I know. That is the standard way of updating on windows. Sometimes you do need to uninstall first.

i deleted npm-debug.log like an idiot (via rm git function)
and it looks like i shouldn’t have xD
any idea how to quickly undo such a thing
Lily Romano

Jul 31 2016 20:05 UTC
If it wasn't commited somewhere, then no. Although @davidjcastner might. My node knowledge is very light.

Jul 31 2016 20:06 UTC
yeah i thought it was the result of an incomplete download that i had it, but i’m thinking i was wrong xD
especially since when i went to install nvm it told me something along the lines oh “yo dude, where’s the npm-debug.log"
and i said “ ugh, …"
that’s why i hate terminal
when i screw up i haven’t the slightest idea how to fix what i did
cmd/ctrl + z doesn’t seem to work xD
anywho, i’m out. until tonight..
