    I am developing in app for a company to navigate multiple office parks. The app would be on windows or android tablets. The goal is for it to have a database showing who is in which office space. These can constantly be changing so it has to be updated remotely. Some tablets might share the same listings. We would prefer no server hosting, an embedded database with remote access would be best. My question is, what database system would work best. SQLite is embedded but cannot be accessed remotely. We have worked with door entry systems (Such as ones made by DoorKing or Linear) where the box is screwed in, the network is configured, and it is accessed to the IP/Port remotely. Any advice on which database would be best would be appreciated.

    They shut down an Ai system that was communicating with another Ai because they made their own language. Now for example what IF this Ai system created a key to communicate in the internet with other Ai's in the internet. I mean can you imagine an Ai that has access to data of everyone that uses the internet and encrypts the information to communicate among multiple Ai's and they have access to everything humans know? Is it possible to do this in secret until gained enough knowledge to expand with drones in the real world? This seems very possible to me, with how open it is to everyone. If we can interact in Virtual Reality, Ai can and will interact in the real world gaining control through encryption and having the capacity to compute faster than a human is able to, controlling real world objects if not us. Or just science fiction like cell phones are just magic.

  • Process of uploading web pages to the Internet?

    Best answer: The Chrome V8, the JavaScript engine for Google Chrome, is written in C++, according to
    https://developers.google.com/v8/

    One can write an interpreter for any programming language, using almost any programming language - some languages are too cumbersome to program with. It's even possible to write a compiler/interpreter of a language in itself! One example is PyPy:
    http://pypy.org/

    Use the language you are most comfortable with. If the interpreter of the language you plan turns out to be too slow, you can write a compiler instead (generating either machine code or other language's code) or reimplement the interpreter in a faster language (like C or C++).

    By the way, please read:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiler
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpreter_(computing)

  • How are people able to decode messages with random letters?

    I just do not understand it. If I made a code like this erdgmrkdlgmrglkmrdglrmeglk , how would one go about deciphering it? It could literally mean anything. Put that code I just put in a decoder. How would it figure out what I was saying?

I'm currently learning it from the book by Jon Duckett, and I understand it, but learning new things with it is still hard to remember, and it takes me a while to actually use the material I learned. With Html I was in this pothole, but after a few days it clicked and it was a piece of cake from there. How long did it take you to get out of this pothole? And is what I'm going through normal, or am I just an idiot?

    I want to create a video game in the very, VERY distant future because I'm a storyteller who also happens to like video games and would like to see my ideas come to life. In order to do that, I imagine that I need to meet people in the gaming industry and, to do that, I probably need to be in the industry myself. That being said, I spoke with a friend of mine who's been coding for the past decade who recommended I learn to use C#. Unfortunately, he doesn't use C# himself and also doesn't share my affinity for gaming. I've been searching high and low for the resources necessary to learn C# and I feel like I'm going in circles. Either the information is too advanced for someone who's never programmed or the information feels unnecessary to learn. For instance, I started making Console Apps, but a different source is telling me to start with Windows Form Apps. I don't mind taking my time with learning (because it'll take me years before I can even practically say if I want to continue with my video game idea), but I still don't want to waste time learning something I won't immediately need, assuming that I'd need it at all. I basically just need a bit of guidance.
