It's always nice whenever some new content shows up or you find new music. People say that romance is one of the best emotions but how about your emotional reaction when you FINALLY find that one song you've been looking for but just couldn't remember the name? There was this one time I was looking for one phonk song that I absolutely loved hearing when watching yt shorts and it took me literal hours but I finally found it like a month ago. XD

That literally happened to me the other day!! The joy was immense. I found this song that has been used everywhere on tik tok and whenever I tried clicking on the record spinning to find it's name, it was always some pre-recording of the song so the name wouldn't be on there. The song was Love You So by The King Khan & BBQ Show, one my of new favorite romo songs now聽馃槑

I was trying to find some random phonk song I'd seen in an edit. I scrolled through random tik tok song compilations for literal hours but it was worth every second! :D

CSS coding

Great, I'm very impressed! For me, starting to code in CSS was the uncomfortable moment where all my previous programming experience was null and void.

I think that CSS in reality means "Check your superiority, you actually suck".

Oh, and if someone says it's not real programming, show them that.

CSS + HTML is Turing-complete! 馃槃

Haha thanks, I'll be sure to show them the preview!

I can definitely see why some back-end programmers look down on us CSS users, but I think it's fair to say that sometimes we have it tough too (Of course, I've only been a it for a year-ish consistently, so experts would have it better than me).

I like it, although html and CSS are the only ones I know and I don't have a lot of experience outside of web design so I'm not even close to an expert

okay. I have only a little experience with hmtl :)

The CSS box model is IMHO pretty difficult to understand and use correctly, and I've seen many developers who exhibit a stubborn resistance to it, since it's so different to normal programming.

Nowadays, we use stuff like Bootstrap or Foundation that make it dramatically easier, and many frontend developers regard those frameworks as workarounds to understanding CSS. They're doing ok, until a certain "small problem" comes up that needs manual fixing ...

What鈥檚 the opinion on hmtl?

Plain HTML is easy to master. Do I have an opinion of it? It's kind of like asking my opinion on water, it's too basic and there's no way around it ... (HTML 5 was of course a godsend, imagine there was a time when Netflix used Silverlight).

This is very much me - I /hate/ HTML and CSS - Really dont understand them and avoid as much as possible.

If CSS is the whipped cream, then HTML is the pancake. I like to think of it like the outlet that holds the charger. Because it's a base, there's a limit to what you can do with it in terms of styling. However, without it, you can't do anything at all.

Thankfully, this pancake uses a simple recipe and you can learn how to make it within a few hours. Still, while the basic principals are fairly easy to grasp, every time you learn a new language you sorta have to learn how to incorporate that into the base. So once in an eternity, you might pick up something new haha.

I actually don't think CSS is all too difficult to learn if you've never used a back end language before (HTML doesn't count here). In fact, compared to styling with HTML I would actually call it easier because of how it's organized.

Since I posted that first comment I did end up completing my second year compsci course and learned some java (still a beginner but I can make objects, user controls, and move stuff) but It's been torturous. Java is like math. It is math. Applying it is like calculus. Unfortunately for me, it's also important. But it does do some pretty cool things.

I can see why people who have used Java forever would be annoyed learning CSS. It's like asking a genius mathlete to excel at art class. Just, why? It's a terrible analogy but it encompasses the issue 馃槄

Sometimes I think applying CSS doesn't feel like putting whipped cream on a pancake, but more like making a Baked Alaska.

How does one style with HTML? I know that web design in the age of yore was based on using HTML tables for the page. Controversially, that was probably a rather natural way to look at things. And the first iterations of CSS really had inadequate layout capabilities, e.g. missing display:table, display:flex.

Anyway ... IMHO, CSS never ceases to amaze me. Like when I came across the problem explained here. I really don't think there's anything "easy" about it. 馃榾

Normal programming is certainly way more analytical compared to CSS. So I totally agree it is very close to math

But there was some interesting research that I just have to share, claiming "... coding does not precisely replicate the cognitive demands of mathematics either".

Probably the crucial difference is that one can employ indirect or non-constructive methods in math, but not in programming. Like, you can prove there are infinitely many primes without having to develop an algorithm that produces an infinite sequence of primes.

If we look at Euclid's proof ...

"Assume that you found the largest prime n, then the product 2 路 3 路 5 路 ... 路 n + 1 must be prime again, since any division by 2, 3, ..., n always yields the remainder 1."

... we see that it only works non-constructively: you show that a claim is self-refuting. But you don't get a method to construct primes by this. A counterexample would be 2 路 3 路 5 路 7 路 11 路 13 + 1 = 30031. This is not a prime, since 30031 = 59 路 509.

Indirect / non-constructive programming OTOH does not exist. Even the most abstract programming style must in the end construct something, produce something.

I love drawing, listening to music, playing video games (Just Shapes & Beats, any other rhythm-like games), and sometimes sewing plushies.

I love both HTML聽and聽CSS! I learned them in my IT college course, and I personally find them pretty easy to use (CSS especially, there aren't too many confusing symbols or words like other coding languages). I also learned a bit of JavaScript, but I find that quite tedious and difficult to use, as great and important as it is. I just enjoy making funny websites that look cool sometimes. Planning on making a site on Neocities in the future at some point!
