Jib, this has been discussed ad nauseam in the mod forum. Don't go there.

Oh, and please feel free to list all the different forums that have trade threads.

Some forums do allow transfers, but it's not as casual as it seems.

Good God, can you imagine an RGT transfer thread? The possible scams are endless....

There really is not much up there right now, but I just started it. There is a video on how to make poker videos with free software and end up with a high quality low file size video. I taught myself how to make websites and everything that you see cost me nothing, so it is not the greatest site in the world, but I think that it is nice.

So here is a link to the site,

www.jibpoker.tk

Let me know what you guys think, and please tell everyone!

The site looks nice and professional, and I've heard Drupal has a steep learning curve. Also cool that you use free and open source resources, which makes your site more hack resistant. Nice job!

Wow, it's been a while since I made this post. I now have moved my site, which you might have seen the links, to http://jibpoker.com

As for Drupal, it did take me a little bit to get used to it but it was not that bad, and once I did I realized how awesome it is. Our House turned me on to it and said that it is a must so I worked through the curve and glad that I did, I couldn't live without it now.

Have you done any web design stuff before? You obviously have some knowledge for the fact that you brought up drupal.

I am a programmer going to school, and I get my degree in about a month. I saw that you were looking for advice on forms and SQL, and I did a ton for school, but it looks like OurHouse has taken care of it already. Haven't worked with drupal, but the wiki said it is known for being hard to learn. It's cool that you and Madnak, OurHouse, and Nitty are into this stuff.

That's awesome. I am a self taught guy that probably knows nothing compared to you, and I really did not have any issues picking up drupal.

I would love it if there was more website talk around here. Every once in a while there is one in the CTH, but not that often. I actually started one today about a website that I found dealing with SEO and Drupal. Good stuff.

Also, what kind of programing did you specialize in?

Re: Official RGT random **** thread

Sep. 1st I ship out to basic training for the USAF. I am an atheist, but I understand that not going to Sunday church services will get you extra work/possibly worse. Here are my options:

* Protestant (e.g. Baptist)
* Methodist
* Presbyterian, etc.
* Liturgical (e.g. Episcopal)
* Lutheran
* Congregational, etc.
* Catholic
* Jewish
* Eastern Orthodox
* Muslim
* Pentecostal
* Seventh Day Adventist
* Church of Christ
* Christian Science
* Latter-day Saint
* Eckankar
* Wicca
* Bahai
* Buddhist
* Hindu

Which service should I go to? I grew up in a mormon household, so I might go to the LDS services for a laugh. Maybe buddhist, as I imagine it would be the least repulsive mentally, and might allow me to relax a little during this crazy time.

Just looked at the wiki, and that is some funny ****. I wonder if there are scientology services. "Dishonorable discharge, reason: Rickroll'd."

Re: Official RGT random **** thread

Go with one of the Christian sects That way you won't be singled out for abuse (or worse) by your fellow soldiers.

http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/07/08/ath...ier/index.html

His sudden lack of faith, he said, cost him his military career and put his life at risk. Hall said his life was threatened by other troops and the military assigned a full-time bodyguard to protect him out of fear for his safety.


http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/2...tm_medium=link

Well, to make a very long story a little shorter, the Major turned out to be a fundamentalist Christian who verbally berated the other attendees, accused them of plotting against Christians and disrespecting soldiers who have died protecting the Constitution, and threatened them with punishment under the UCMJ for their activities (said they were "going down") and said he would do whatever it took to shut the meetings down. Keep in mind that by this point, he had two of the attendees (one soldier fled when the shouting started) standing at the position of attention so that he could yell at them, berate them, and humiliate them. This apparently went on for several minutes at which time the Major shut down the meeting by saying he wasn't some "push-over Chaplain" and that he would not tolerate the meetings to continue.

Although it was not as emphasized, I learned HTML, XML, javascript, php, jsp, ,asp.net, various SQLs for web development. I'm just not a very creative person, so I don't have a web site because I don't know of any niche to fill. I am better with the technical aspects.

I was in the army for five years, but my advice is general enough for the "chair force" haha. My basic training was July - Sept 2001. I am atheist, but I had Christian - non-denominational put on my dogtags. Every Sunday, we had the option of going to church services or cleaning the barracks. I never went to church, but the cleaning was not that bad, maybe an hour of work. Sunday we were mostly left alone in the barracks. Most of my platoon didn't go to church, but I doubt most were atheists. Also our drill sergeant said he didn't like us going, leaving all the work for those who didn't go, so that might have had an effect.

I suggest doing whatever the majority of your platoon does. If you have a few mormons in your platoon, I suggest going to Mormon services. I have never been religious, but of the groups I encountered often in the army, the mormons had better attitudes and make better friends. If most of the platoon isn't going to church, don't bother. After basic, you will probably not encounter problems unless you draw attention to your atheism. Nuisances, like "prayer breakfast or no breakfast", can still occasionally be an issue.

On another note,
Spoiler:


If you have any other general military life questions, feel free to ask.

Yikes, that awesome. I am very envious of you. At some point I definitely want to learn Java and C++.

The creative stuff is tougher for me as well. I have always been much better at taking some one else's idea and making it better, or just tweaking it.

Was this quote of mine even in this thread? Either way this was a while ago within a specific conversation.

I would learn C before C++, and get Kernighan and Ritchie's "The C Programming Language." It may not be the best start, but it's small enough that you can reliably expect to learn everything in it. I would also go through "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Strousrup, though you don't need to dogear that one. This advice probably makes me sound like an old man, but C++ is versatile enough that some knowledge of memory manipulation and a basic understanding of the core capabilities of the language as well as how the abstraction actually works will give you much more solid footing, even if 90% of what you do doesn't require that.

Also, as a self-taught programmer, going through the nuts 'sand bolts helped me gain some skill in areas that computer science majors in formal schooling would be covering in their classes. It's really sad when a coder doesn't understand basic search algorithms.
