#675753 American Military

Posted by tavich on 22 October 2014 - 05:12 PM

This is for the US military veterans or involved in US military, or anyone who knows! I MAYBE going into the Navy. I was considering it. I took a quick, short, practice ASVAB. I got a 48. I was good,(to be accepted to the Navy) could get in. My question is: does the higher score give me a greater chance of doing the job I want? I am going to take an actual one in November. Let's say I get a 52, which is estimated since the practice one is apparently a tad bit harder. I just want to know if I should put a lot of effort into it, even if I am "considering" it, I want to make sure I do my best. Or does it not matter? Whatever job you get is whatever the military thinks you're best suited for?  

Your ASVAB score determines the probability that you will get what you want. If you get a 100, you practically can get any MOS. The recruiters job is to get you to sign to something in high demand. If you tell him straight up that you qualify for this role and you want it. You should have no problem getting the occupation you want. The higher the ASVAB score is, the higher priority you are. Primarily, as long as you pass the requirement for the MOS YOU WANT TO DO. You should be okay.

Don't slack the ASVAB. If you have a chance to re-take it, do it. Won't hurt, you can only get higher :)

#675369 What is your political stance/party?

Posted by tavich on 07 October 2014 - 10:56 AM

I'm politically libertarian, but usually vote Republican in primaries to try to get Tea Party candidates elected.

 

Most of my beliefs come from two major sources: first, I'm a 41 year old mathematician with a basic understanding of economics. Most attempts to regulate various aspects of the economy have been ineffective at best, and backfired at worst. Locally, politicians are regulating use of cell phones "except when used as a hands-free device", as if 90% of cell phones weren't already hands-free. Nationally, we see ACA/Obamacare turning into a disaster as people who use the website to register make themselves vulnerable to identity thieves, insurance prices skyrocket, and the government puts in delay after delay because they just couldn't make things work on time. These, and many others I could name, are easily explained with economics. Supply and demand, consumer self-interest, and many other simple economic concepts explain the failures and actually make them predictable.

 

One of the mistakes many people make is believing that we are still a capitalist society. We aren't businesses are HEAVILY regulated, from licensing fees, to taxes, to now ACA. I have a friend who owns a small pizza chain. She has three stores, and will probably never expand it to avoid hitting that magical 50 employees that would require her to buy them insurance. She could probably have the next Papa John's pizza, but she's being forced to remain small because her business can't take that kind of hit. I have another friend who works for the permits department of the city. She went to a newly opened restaurant and had to report them for having a ton of small pennant flags outside for their grand opening. They hadn't gotten a permit for them. Heck, at 12, you can't have a lemonade stand in your front yard without getting a permit. It's completely insane.

 

Second, I have far more faith in people's ability to solve problems than the government. My office is on property that is managed by a 3rd party company. They recently resurfaced our parking lots (I'm in an office complex), even though they weren't bad yet. By contrast, my local county government can't get a pothole to stay patched for 3 weeks. Now they want to raise gas taxes, despite the fact they've been wasting money on bike trails and other nonsense.

 

Personally, I think our country would be far better off if 90% of the laws on the books were wiped out. You probably broke enough laws between waking up and reading this to get you in jail for a year, without knowing it. Think about how scary that really is.

I agree, if our government will stop trying to regulate everything and start letting the people decide "where the 12 year old would want to put a lemonade stand" then America would be such a greater place to live.

#665605 Hey, I have a life question

Posted by tavich on 08 November 2013 - 07:11 PM

Web development will always be helpful...even 20 years from now :P.

However, you need to know what your going to do exactly with what you create. Are you going to sell it? free? etc.

 

Programming is another best bet. However, a new programming language that grabs curiosity is developed every few years. But, that doesn't necessarily mean you have to stop using the current one. C is old, and lots of people still use that. The same rules apply however.

 

Once you master those, you could be the god of the internet. Everything else should logically come to you (Game Development, Business Management, etc.)

#657499 Experience with private servers?

#657407 Experience with private servers?

Posted by tavich on 24 April 2013 - 07:02 PM

1. The most popular crowd is preety much PvP, though RP has taken a advancement over the years.

 

2. Most private servers are ran in USA, UK or DE. I play from USA and most players on private servers are UK or DE. Just depends on the server, there are alot of USA servers.

 

3. Private servers are a way to edit the server files that wouldn't be editable with an official server. An example of this, is WoW. Private servers allow the host to change everything from XP to the news on the login page. However, WoW is not the only example of this, EVE, APB and RIFT are also good examples of these private servers.

 

4. The business model is actually very smart, but could be somewhat unfair. Most private servers charge a $x.xx amount of money to lets say....get modified weapons/armor/vehicles/mounts etc. or change their account name or upgrade their character etc.

They make alot of money by doing this, even since its so easy to setup, theres litterly 1000's of "store" scripts for websites for just WoW.

 

5.Legal....somewhat no, but yes.

It really all depends on what game, WoW claims for it to be illegal but they aren't exactly enforcing that anymore. So no legal action. Runescape is taken no action either, EVE has no clue about their private servers, and APB dev's are just to stuck up to notice.

I believe, ( I could be wrong ) as long as your not offering any commerical out of your game, you should be good.

But most game devs don't like it when someone steals their players.

 

Were you interested in private servers overall? or for a specific game.

 

EDIT::

I should also add that creating a private server without any core or emulator, requires some serious hacking and reverse engineering.

However!

Most cores or Emulators for all MMORPG's are written in C, C++ or C#.

And saying that you know C, modifying a core/emu should be easy...Not really sure why you would want to though unless your trying to get a stable version.

Speaking of which, I should also add that MOST private server cores and emus are not 100%. Each core is for different things ( PVP, RP, PVE, RPE, FB, DEV) so you should pay attention to what exactly you want out of the private server.

But back to you trying to get a stable version, you will need a working account for the mmo and a knowledge of "database ripping" - don't know what its called.

#645776 Export To Excel Easy (From Datatables)

Posted by tavich on 30 November 2012 - 02:34 PM

hi, just tried your implementation, it is great, however there is one issue, it is really slow for large data set, is there any way we can speed it up.

thanks,

That does not seem like a problem with the coding, more like a computer problem. It looks like your CPU ( Processor ) or your Hard Drive is not reading the file or creating the file fast enough.
Buying a better CPU or HD will improve the speed.

#643667 The 5th of november.

Posted by tavich on 05 November 2012 - 11:59 AM

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,

The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,

I know of no reason

Why the Gunpowder Treason

Should ever be forgot.



Does anyone agree with what Guy Fawkes did? Or do you disagree.
( I live in the USA, but still paid attention to this holiday, :D )

#640664 New to Programming: How is the industry looking in San Bernardino - Riversid...

Posted by tavich on 04 October 2012 - 02:27 AM

And about you finding a job,
I can't really say whether your going to find a job mainly because I don't live in CA :)
But I can say that independent programmers are increasing largely in the past few years and the reason of that is the reason your worrying about - "Finding a job".
I used this job search and found these options for you as a programmer and these options as a software engineer.

Hope this helps!

#639175 How do you feel about CloudFlare?

Posted by tavich on 18 September 2012 - 06:12 PM

But then the attacker could attack the TLD domain which will still have the same affect since your domain is hosted from their nameservers.
Plus, I believe it's still possible to ping a subdomain. Not sure though.

I recommend that you take a look at "Net Tools" Developed by Mohammad Ahmadi Bidakhvidi.
This program features over 100 hacking tools, the guy even found the algorithm for four or five major credit card companies. The program is free and I believe I found it in 2008 when I was in 5th grade. The program features hacking tools from a HTTP Flooder to False Email Spoofer.
Where I am getting at here, is that program was found by a 5th grader...in 2008.
It's obvious we evolved since then, with that said, I am preety sure attacks on sub domains is extremely easy right now.

Sorry if its messy, I literally just got up.

#634790 [SOLVED] References And Namespaces

Posted by tavich on 29 July 2012 - 06:33 PM

I believe you need to download them first. I am not sure.

1) Download it,
2) Goto the solution explorer and right click to add a reference
3) Browse to the location and select the .dll's
4) Above your default namespace, add the reference .dll name

#632796 Vb.net Browser Download

Posted by tavich on 29 June 2012 - 09:20 AM

**o Everyone....

I want to ask a question, is there any vb.net editor? If yes, then please tell me about that........

Thanks


By editor, I think you mean IDE.
Yes.

Visual Basic is meant to be created in its official IDE, Visual Studio 2010. There is a free version ( express version ) which sets you up with the basics of vb.net

If you are going a little more advanced with it and the IDE cannot match your awesomeness in programming, you can give notepad++ a try. There is no designing in this but you don't have to wait five seconds between actions.

But seriously, how did you miss visual studio??

And it's not nice to hijack posts, if you have a unrelated question to the topic of the post then make a new post about the question :)
