    Tulsi is the only one with a shot in hell and of course they won’t run her.

    [–] Using match on an array with regular expression albertaengineer 2 points ago in PowerShell

    Yeah I did this it fails on "SE1.Description := "".""" - i.e. once I add the number... wtf? I checked the file for odd characters with [\x00-\x7F]+ in vscode and everything seems clear. So strange.

    I love the cogent and non-emotional responses reality insights in people.

    What counties in the world are following their interpretation of the Leviticus? How many follow some form of Koranic law? Just saying “nah nah nah not listening!” And believing if we are just really nice like a child then these issues disappear doesn’t help. I believe in being kind, but not not naive.

    If you are scared of brown people that’s legitimately dumb. Being scared of changing demographics and the acceptance of sharia (religious) law amongst those demographics is quite sane. The shooter was and is evil. The problem is the problems he points out do exist.

    [–] Using match on an array with regular expression albertaengineer 3 points ago in PowerShell

    Yeah, I double and triple checked, and ran the script piece by piece in and debugged and ran checks to see everything is what I think it is. I have a book on regular expressions because I've been doing a lot of pattern matching on large/random data sets. I have a feeling it's going to be a quark of powershell (which I love working with because nothing else to install) and when I figure it out I'm going to bang my head.

    [–] Using match on an array with regular expression albertaengineer 2 points ago in PowerShell

    It's xml with a messy output from a proprietary program with it's own irregular scheme. I'm trying to match specific lines to only change (eventually I'm going to use replace, but start with match) the lines that match a specific pattern. The pattern I listed should only match the lines I need. " Description := " is all over the place, so I need an exact match. Just reading up in greedy vs ungreedy.

    [–] Dear brigaders from T_D albertaengineer -4 points ago in The_Mueller

    So do you think that it that months of "Trump is going down, Putin, Putin" wasn't a genuinely politically motivated attempt to upend an existing government? As opposed to an attempt to investigate the truth... No evidence of anything, just people getting caught on OTHER things and some making deals to pretend Trump is a "bad guy". It seems to be the epitome of Trump derangement syndrome. He makes mean tweets sometimes. Like, really...?

    Are you retarded? “Nobody ever found the body so it isn’t actually murder. There was no conviction so it isn’t actually rape” wtf

    [–] Question on a quick public DB setup for a newb albertaengineer 1 points ago in AskProgramming

    A lot of the data needs to be manipulated in excel so I figured excel and then build up a series of templates with nice queries over time. The difference is centralized data rather than workbooks updated on the fly.

    [–] Question on a quick public DB setup for a newb albertaengineer 1 points ago in AskProgramming

    Kinda what I'm debating a bit. I have experience with Django and MySQL. I need to make something to store data and serve it out to multiple people with a new structure. No money to make a front end, but technically competent people where they could connect to the DB via mySQL for excel (or something like that, dealing with tables directly) and read and write data if I made a procedure and did backups etc. Right now we use a huge about of excel workbooks and VBA for engineering data that is immense (columns and rows) and worked on by 8+ people. The file management system is becoming untenable, and I'd like to make a quick database and then build around it over time if that makes sense.

    [–] Question on a quick public DB setup for a newb albertaengineer 1 points ago in AskProgramming

    Thank you. I'll read through it and give it a go. My only concern (and my phrasing might be bad, it's been a long week) is ensuring that it's properly configured as it'd be public facing and my contain sensitive data. It's basically "learning as I go" approach but ensuring I've covered my bases.

    I just don’t underestimate what people will say for money. Is there anything in your link that evidence in the sense that you can remove people’s motivation to get a lot of money?

    [–] CDO mail send on remote server albertaengineer 1 points ago in sysadmin

    telnet smtp.domain.com 25

    it fails for the smtp.domain.com (given by nslookup) on any port. Connection fails. Can't get to the helo instruction, etc.

    [–] CDO mail send on remote server albertaengineer 1 points ago in sysadmin

    I did an nslookup for the mx record and it gave me the smtp host name (assuming I got that right, it was the server host name prefixed with smtp, so seems legit). Connections on 25, 587 etc (common ports) to either the host name of the server or the smtp host name fail via telnet (thank you for the guide) so I'm assuming a protocol switch, a port switch, adding authentication, or some firewall along the way interrupting the connection. Can I eliminate any of those at all given the response?
