Thanks HP! I wanted a nice way to get started with JS, SQL and PHP. w3schools looks like a good way.

I'd actually suggest Codecademy for JS if you want to learn it quickly.

I found this website called millionshort it lets you search google without all the top results, so you get to see the lesser known side of the internet.

I actually prefer being thrown syntax and functions at me (which is what w3schools seems to do). Codecademy seems to assume that you have no previous programming knowledge, so I'd feel like I'm wasting some time by re-learning variables, data types, loops, selection statements, functions, classes, constructor functions, etc.

Nice! It realy offers a new perspective - I never look past the second page of the search results.

I know peeps are going to find themselves bored during the holidays, so here are some recommendation engines:

Taste kid (Movies, books, music)
Gnod (Movies, books, music)
Jinni (Movies)
What Should I Read Next (Books)
Which book (Book recommendations based on your mood)
Goodreads (Books)
Stereomood (Music based on your mood)
Musicovery (Music based on artists or mood)

There are many others, but these are just the ones I've used at some point in the past that don't require registration.

I'd be happy to help with any programming questions if you can't find any answers online.

I came across this video today and was amazed by the talent. I love canon in d and I think this is a great interpretation. Check it out!

I actually do have a programming question. Its fairly beginner so I think you can help me out: What are returns in JavaScript? I read about it but I don't understand how they work. Thanks.

Ah see website design you have picked up on my greatest weakness! I work with software, games mostly, and don't work a lot with website design.

But basically, a return is used inside a function to "give out" a value to a variable. Variables that have been initialised can be altered within functions.

For example:

function myWorld()
{
var x=9;
var y=10;
return y*x;
}

This function, when called by another function, would return or "give" the value 90 and be stored within a variable inside the function that this function was called, such as the example below -

function anotherFunction()
{
var myValue=myWorld();
}

myValue would now store the value 90.

You can use return with strings and boolean values too (true or false).

Also return on its own with no value:
{
...
return;
}

will just exit the function with no value returned.

I hope this helped.

Chiming in: When you call a function with a return value, you should treat it as an expression rather than a statement or the return value will be useless.

To use Skybet's example, if you wrote this:

myWorld(10);

It would do nothing as myWorld doesn't do anything except to return a value. However, if you changed it to this:

function myWorld()
{
document.writeln("Koin is awesome");
return 90;
}

It would still write out 'Koin is awesome', whether you treat myWorld as a statement or an expression.

Found a pretty cool site where you can create a zombie version of yourself, it's fun! Especially if you're a fan of the Walking Dead series and comics.

Try it out here

This is my effort:

I decided to link the image because it's a bit gruesome. Click here if you want to see it


Now who looks the tastiest?

Evil Overlord Test

Everyone should take this and post results. It is pretty long but it's freaking amazing.

NOTE: It is on a dating website, so if you are opposed to that kind of thing, I guess you'll have to miss out.


EDIT: Here is my result:

Your result for The Evil Overlord Test ...
Sauron

80% Evil, 83% Intelligence, 85% Common Sense

Annatar, The Black Hand, The Ring-maker, The Red Eye -- Sauron went by many names over the generations of his dark and twisted rule. For thousands of years, he terrified the inhabitants of the land. His knowledge was vast, his ability to control was unmatched. Originally the servant of a greater evil, he took command when his master was banished from the world, never to return. He had an intimate knowledge of craftworks and various magics, which he employed to great effect to build one of the greatest, darkest of lairs in a region so twisted and corrupt, life itself simply gave up upon entering. He also went on to create what may possibly be the smallest, simplest of super weapons known, that granted him near complete control over the lands. The one crucial mistake he made, however, was to bind his very existence to that super weapon, and when it was destroyed in the very fires that created it, Sauron found his essence shattered and destroyed.

Sauron is identified as being extremely evil, possessing incredibly high intelligence and great amounts of common sense. For all intents and purposes, Sauron is quite possibly the greatest of Overlords to have ever reigned.
