Yep, I'm doing fine. Just need to get very serious about my debts. I'm also diving into two-way radio instead. I have a GMRS license now, and plan to study for the Technician Class Ham Radio exam soon.
It's an old hobby, and I've been wanting to explore it more for several years.
BTW: I still have my website up, just locally-hosted (no more uploading), and not online at all times (shuts down at bedtime, when recording videos or during maintenance): roachk71.access.ly, or roachk71.geekgalaxy.com
The Videos page isn't too mobile-friendly, though, as I don't have Zenphoto any more. I'll try to make a scrolling list out of it later.
Also good then. Glad you are exploring new hobbies and so on.

it is, the other mods on the discord and I unanimously decided to ban you for making multiple spam accounts and suspicious behaviour. If you want to talk about it, we can set up a dm session however I don't really think the forums are the best place to discuss it.
I can send you a longer reply but again,, this really isn't the place for that.
im alive; mostly in my sergal and my csgo/clan server not much on the dc since its not very active i have slowed down my progress on my skyrim mod as of late. im hoping to wait it out until the new elder scrolls and restart it then (or when i actually take some python coding classes)
tl;dr im alive, but not doing much in the fandom other than watching
Python is an interpreted language, and its shortcomings are certainly evident in many Open Source "system tools." I've started re-learning Pascal, which is much more efficient (and I grew up learning originally; I'm very rusty, so it's time to go back to work...) In fact, I also have Free Pascal and Lazarus installed on my Ubuntu box.
I have a PDF copy of Learn Pascal in Three Days on my GDrive share, if you're interested; While this book mostly covers Turbo Pascal, it's still a valuable resource for students and beginners (including yours truly.) Better hurry, 'cause I can only make this available for one day.
While Python is quite efficient as an interpreter, one should never develop system tools (or even serious games) using it. But, that's mostly just my opinion and personal experience. As a programmer, I tend to be very pragmatic.
I do wish you the best of luck and success in your learning endeavor.
the reason for python is because everything in skyrim is in python or lua, and personally lua is a pain in the ass to do bethesda being idiots made the quest system in python and the rest of the game in C++(possibly so the quest makers and scripters for interactive stuff an easier time)
I couldn't agree more about Lua. As for anything C-related, I see that language as more of an obfuscation engine than a programming language, that allows coders to get away with lazy (and dangerous) coding practices.
I've seen several examples of fencepost errors, C Programmer's Disease, and memory leak-causing structures where developers shot themselves in the foot (the Windows ME shutdown problem is perhaps one of the worst.. Heh...)
C source is overly-symbolic and can be difficult to read and debug, so I abhor the language, though I'll use it if necessary.

Oh, there's something I'd forgotten to mention a while back for those experiencing screen tearing using Xubuntu with Intel integrated graphics. This will probably save your sanity (the problem used to drive me nuts.) If you're interested:
1. Create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel-graphics.conf as superuser (you may have to create the directory as well,) and add the following:
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "TripleBuffer" "true" Option "TearFree" "true" EndSection ...then save the file.
