Just Coded A Password Manager in Python.

Lately, I’m learning how to code in Python. So far I was able to complete coding a password manager in Python. This password manager can encrypt and decrypt the stored local passwords. You also need to create a master password before you can use the software. This program got a few minor bugs but it’s fully functioning. I’ve uploaded the source code to Github. Check out the source at https://github.com/aarriitt666/VPass.

XSLT Basics For Transforming One Specific XML Structure To Another XML Structure

I was messing around with R (i.e., a free program that can organize and transform data), and I told R to transform the data into CSV format.  I converted this CSV format file into XML file using one of those CSV to XML free tools on the Internet.  The problem is that the XML file I got from the whole process contains structure in which is radically different from the XML structure that I need to use with a software.  Luckily, XSLT comes to the rescue.  With XSLT, I discover that it’s possible to transform one XML structure to another XML structure.  The problem is that I have no knowledge of how to use XSLT just yet.  Once again, YouTube is a treasure trove of free information, and the YouTube video right after the break introduces me to XSLT basics.  Of course, I may have to do more study and research on XSLT before I would know how to properly transform one XML structure to another XML structure.

R Datalicious

R is calling me.  Anyhow, I’m trying to learn R.  I think R is very powerful, because it has features that allow you to collect data in various ways.  With R, you can also easily analyze data and make charts, graphs, and whatnot.  I’m a newbie in R, and so I may not be able to fully appreciate R.  I’m a newbie in R, and so I don’t know how to express how powerful R is to you.  Nonetheless, I know a few things so far.

Here is one example among many of how I understand R could be used by you.  With R, you can install Rvest package to easily collect data from the Internet (i.e., websites).  Note:  Data don’t have to come from the Internet.  It’s possible to use R to collect data and then store the data into MySQL database.  It is also possible that the data in MySQL can also be converted back into appropriate data formats in which R would be able to utilize.  Marrying MySQL and R together, it’s possible to enlarge the data collection scale by using R, and using R to format data in various manners.  (My newbie speak, because you may know of a more elegant way of going about using R in this specific manner.)

Anyhow, to scratch the surface of R and see how powerful R can be, just check out the two videos right after the break.  (These YouTube videos are not mine, because I embed them from other YouTube’s user-generated content authors.)  Enjoy!


Teens’ Reaction To Windows 95

Check out kids’ reactions to Windows 95 in the video right after the break.  I don’t blame them, because Windows 95 is like really, really old.  Well, my first Windows is also Windows 95, and so I guess I’m pretty old.  I wonder how these kids will react if they get to see Windows 3.1.  Windows 95 brings back some memories for me, especially the 56K modem which can make the annoying modem noise.  This reminds me of “You’ve Got Mail” movie somehow.  Anyhow, I wonder any of these kids in the video actually has tried out Ubuntu (Linux) before.  Although Ubuntu is so easy to use nowadays, but you can still use so many old school tricks to actually make Ubuntu performs even more meaningful and powerful than just mouse clicking away.  How would they react to Ubuntu’s terminal and command lines?

The Future Is Here, Creating Real World Applications With Virtual Reality

Very good, but it’s too primitive still.  As if I’m a genius… LOL!  Look at me, I’m so powerful.  Actually, what I was trying to say is that I really hope that one day we can have an AI (artificial intelligence) to help people program inside a virtual world or a holographical world to create real world applications and games.  Instead of grammar/syntax checker, bug finder, and whatnot, the AI would be totally way more awesome since it can automatically suggest better ideas and even automate common templates, routines, and whatnot so people (the programmers) don’t really have to repeat a task.  In fact, AI should understand a programmer’s needs in human conversational style.  A good example would be a programmer talks to the AI in this manner {I want to see a beach ball flies 2 feet over the net whenever James, a game character, stamina goes down about 60 percent.}, and the AI should say yes master… it is done, but let me suggest that we should make this scenario more random like this {and off it goes on explaining and showing and doing and…}.
