How viable is freelance web dev right now? Be it front, back, full.

I'm working a 9-5 Network Engineering job, and whilst the pay is decent at 32k (for my area of the country, and being a graduate's first proper job), I'd much rather work to my own accord remotely, and networking is really not the area for that.

I get the impression it isn't very realistic, what with the saturation of webdev bootcamp 'graduates' looking to fulfil the work in your pants dream, and those make your website in one click things like wix.

I have some programming skills, but none I think are particularly relevant (Python, bash), so if the answer is yes , it is viable, I'd like some pointers on areas to focus on please, both in terms of technical skills and areas within web development that offer some opportunity.

I gather (for front end) it is some order of: HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap, Jquery, Git, node.js, mongodb.

Thank you.

People care too much about debate (both improving it or "winning" it by any means necessary) and far too little about substantive policy or even articulating a specific philosophy. Having realised that not only will my preferred policies never be implemented, but my preferred framework for democracy itself (representative democracy as described on the box.) is pure fantasy I've long since resigned myself to viewing politics as team sport for people too weird to get into football. It's quite good to be open with your friends that your approach is to go "Yeah, they've got no idea what they're doing but I still support [colour] team, nobody has a clue what they're doing" without any pretence, or even to admit that other teams have better ideas in small areas but miss the big idea so don't deserve support. It's a great way of working through factionalism too: You're an idiot who should read a fucking book and you'll doom the party if they listen to you, but I still want you to win a seat because you're on our team.

The only thing that surprises me about politics anymore is how little cynicism there is, or how misguided the cynicism is. People would rather believe they were lead by villains than by idiots.

Listen mate, most of us haven't got time to be a bloody anorak about the intricacies of legislating cattle feed additives or the width of railway cabling specifications or whatever shite it is you spend your evenings reading about. We've got better things to do than be a policy wonk, and for that matter so have politicians we vote to wonk on our behalf- Hence why it falls on the shoulders of beleaguered civil servants and everything goes tits up.

In today's fractured, apathetic world of Twitter meltdowns and TV debates, the only thing that matters, fundamentally, is getting the reds or the blues in. You can't draw parallels with the past because we didn't have this set of circumstances. We've never been in this political situation, with this radical change in information and media at the same time. The last three, maybe four elections are the only ones that are relevant to our new and poorly understood cultural era, and if those ones are to go by we're going to live in a bitter stalemate for many years to come, with the only constant being the electorate throwing the shit at the fan whenever somebody is stupid enough to give them the chance.

I strongly suspect none of our discussion here will matter a bit in ten years time. I'd like to say I was right ten years ago when I tried to tell people making fun of the Gay Racists won't make them go away; and here we are. S Club 7 are poised to take over the EU. But it doesn't matter- Ten years ago we didn't have the alt right, we didn't have twitter, we didn't have flashmobs milkshaking people. The very worst we had was a few gimps in Guy Fawkes masks, and they were the good guys then.

Bloody minded tribalism seems like something we're going to have to get used to. The centrist has been thoroughly rejected.

You don't need to care about those intricacies. Those are by and large administration problems, not political problems. A failure to adequately distinguish between the two is one of the reasons we deserve our current mess. Politics became dormant the moment we decided that big (often philosophical, irreducible to 'evidence based policy') questions of "Who gets what, when and how?" weren't really up for debate, let alone letting the public have any agency over them at the ballot box. There were perfectly moderate ways to avoid the mess we've been careering towards since the 90s but nobody took them. They had a duty to lead and they failed us. Call that wonkery if you want, but it's better than the freak who wants to help with the legislative process of changing cattle feed additives.

Wonks who obsess over minutiae signify the death of politics, not the worship of it. Say what you will about now versus 10 years ago, at least wonkocracy is collapsing. Sure, it might collapse back into feudalism and the black death but even that can't be as tedious as a politician handing you a pledge card less inspiring than the average supermarket discount coupon. Maybe if our old so-called politics had anything worth preserving, it wouldn't be coming to this. I mean the changing media landscale has a big role (though really, i doubt the electorate are worse informed than they were in 2007. perhaps worse than 1987.) and the public are terrible as always but it's a woeful failure of leadership that we've allowed our public life to decay so far. Why have our leaders not lead? Why has the country that produced so many good leaders started sticking itself with Mays and Corbyns? Perfectly nice people I'm sure, but I doubt they'd have made PPS 40 years ago.

You can say it's inevitable due to technological change if you want, but plenty of other countries haven't fucked themselves up the way we have, even in the same global economic circumstances, even with the same cowardice, even with the same public loss of faith in politics, even with a different order and number of wins for red or blue team. Even the USA looks like it has more opportunities for a bright future than we do.

I know this is about the Seppos, but I'd have thought part of the issue stems from going from quite a lot of common ground and overlap between their two main parties to drifting to the extremes.

Parties drifting to the extremes is a symptom rather than a cause of our problems. Brexit didn't come about because Cameron was an extreme brexiteer hell-bent on dragging the country right, it came about because he was complacent that the rules of the games were fixed within a narrow centre ground, that being an inch off it would doom you (Hi Ed!), that you could accurately predict the behaviour of the electorate and that people were basically inherently small-c conservative. Only after those assumptions were proved to be nonsense did the Conservatives begin to move sharply right. Equally, Corbyn was only nominated by the leadership because a few Labour MPs who didn't actually want him to win nominated him to broaden the debate confident that he couldn't win. Ridiculous, ridiculous complacency.

The common ground between the parties during the 90s-2000s is illusory. It represented an artificial consensus brought about by circumstance and electoral tactics which didn't really satisfy people (or metaphorically, parties.) in the long term. Just as the 1945-76 consensus was fine until it was broken, the 1987-2007ish consensus was dominant until it was doomed by the circumstances it created for itself. It's just shambled on for longer because the circumstances it created equally make it harder to think beyond it even though both major parties acclimatised to it pretty poorly. Blair and Cameron were both perfectly happy to portray themselves in opposition to their parties at large, is it any wonder their parties would come to see them as an outside force and reject their legacy?
If you want my prediction: Things will get worse, but in 10-20 years the parties will have converged again and it will all seem perfectly sensible and normal, except to a few people who object to elements of the new consensus. There is the possibility they converge on political style rather than substance, though.

Everyone knows that scuba divers are just moist racists. Aquatic pursuits are a classic alt-right dog-whistle, because of the connotations of the transatlantic slave trade and the historical legacy of segregation depriving African-Americans of the opportunity to swim. Scuba divers spend thousands of pounds on equipment and travel around the world to go to the one place that they know black people can't follow them - under the water. Every scuba tank is like a burning cross. It's despicable.

I was nearly convinced to attend my local Mormon church when I was stopped in the street by two stunning Mormon girls. One was Asian American, the other a blonde Australian. We swapped phone numbers, and they texted me to ask me to come to church, but my autism got the better of me and I ignored them because I am socially inept and feel I would have humiliated myself at Mormon church.

As I understand it, mormons are strictly forbidden from sex before marriage, to the extent that some churches consider masturbation just as bad. So I suppose it could have gone one of two ways - they would have had their legs closed tighter than a bear trap, or they'd have been horny as fuck and lusting for you to teach them the ways of the secular flesh. It was probably worth the gamble.

The two american mormon girls that showed up to my door were incredibly attractive, too, and so friendly/flirty that I immediately got the sense that I was being primed for a cult. They were truly very pretty though, enough that I still remember them years later.

German women are tough to flirt with. On the upside, they will give it to you pretty straight when they are not interested. So there isn't much wavering about and letting you off easy. You will know when you've got no chance.

The nazifur lot aren't necessarily racist, in my experience. It's just a wierd uniform fetish, and you have to consider that when you're already into animal dicks it really isn't as big of a jump to make. Then there's the added irony that furries themselves are subject to a considerable degree of discrimination.

I think it's really quite unfortunate that furries are victims of that and yet widely viewed as acceptable targets, when they're completely harmless. They don't actually fuck animals, they're into cartoon porn. They're not deviants in any way comparable to peados or rapists. Who has ever heard of a furry committing a mass shooting or bombing? Why do people feel so comfortable in hate against them?

Anyway he might well have been a racist, for all I know, just felt like putting that out there.

/emo/27047 Where to meet birds
So, I've decided to try and not be that guy, a relationship-less virgin, into my mid-20s, which doesn't leave me with very long. I'm home from uni for the summer and have decided it's time to sort my act out.

The only problem - where to meet women?

I've completed tinder in a 15 mile radius, likewise for Bumble - zero (0) matches. I've messaged pretty much every girl on OKCupid with a match >75%; not one has replied.

What can I do now? The few local schoolfriends I am still in contact with are all male, everyone at my job is male, and all the women I talk to (from uni) are either in a relationship or otherwise not an option.

Going out to clubs doesn't work because a) I don't have anyone to go with, and b) when I try and do anything but stand at the bar drinking in a club (ie dance) I look like a tortoise trying to pilot a motorcycle.

Any ideas?

Young adults in England have scored among the lowest results in the industrialised world in international literacy and numeracy tests.

A major study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows how England's 16 to 24-year-olds are falling behind their Asian and European counterparts. England is 22nd for literacy and 21st for numeracy out of 24 countries.

Unlike other developed countries, the study also showed that young people in England are no better at these tests than older people, in the 55 to 65 age range. When this is weighted with other factors, such as the socio-economic background of people taking the test, it shows that England is the only country in the survey where results are going backwards - with the older cohort better than the younger.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) says 31% of graduates are overeducated for the job they are doing. For those graduating before 1992, the number was only 22%, but this jumped to 34% for those graduating after 2007.

Graduates in arts and humanities were more likely to be under-using their education. The overeducation rate for all workers of about 16% for 2017 is largely unchanged since 2006.

Not enough of a distinction is made between the calibre of the university and the subject studied in this country. I don't think this is fully understood by enough people who are planning to on applying to study. Even that BBC article talks about average graduate earnings in general, which gives people false hope over what they can achieve with a shitty degree from a shitty institution.

>Most families do not choose to send their children to their nearest school, shows the biggest ever study of state secondary school choices in England. More than 60% opt for a school that is further away - usually because it is higher achieving.

>"Contrary to a widely-held belief, only a minority of parents choose their local school as their first option," say researchers.

Jamie Oliver’s restaurant empire is calling in administrators, putting more than 1,000 jobs at risk.

The company, which includes 23 Jamie’s Italian outlets, plus the Fifteen and Barbecoa restaurants in London and Jamie’s Diner at Gatwick airport, said KPMG would be appointed as administrator.

Oliver said: “I am deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the staff and our suppliers who have put their hearts and souls into this business for over a decade. I appreciate how difficult this is for everyone affected.

This is something that takeaways have done for a while, so I could see it happening. I feel like people want to imagine their food coming from a real, proper restaurant, but I suppose they never need to know it's actually a warehouse on an industrial estate, and the associated increase in quality and lower price you'd be able to swing from such a venture would work out.

It's hard to say as the public is fickle and buying restaurant food has always been skewed in favour of image over substance. But I reckon calling it a cloud kitchen might be enough to sway them.

Maybe not an industrial estate, you'd still want to be within 10-20 minutes of your resdiential catchment area to keep delivery times short. The rest feels spot on, however. If you could ditch the shop front etc. you forgo the chance at becoming a "happening" place that makes money from walk ins, but who opens Just Eat, Deliveroo or whatever to look for the last place they had a nice sit-down meal and have it delivered? Delivered food is a separate skill. Food needs to be compatible with being delivered, though, potentialy in an insulated hotbox for an hour. Wet things in box plus sauce based thing wins without effort.

Sticking the auxiliary kitchen a bit further out in the suburbs is an advantage, because it extends the delivery range. In a major city like London or Birmingham, you ideally want the second kitchen a few miles from the restaurant to minimise the overlap between the two.

We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

This.

Not saying otherlad is, but I've never understood people's reluctance to pull a sickie when they need to- Your boss doesn't have your best interests in mind. He'd have you trapped in your shit kitchen job the rest of his life if he could, purely so he doesn't have to worry about hiring about someone else.

True enough. It's easy to get caught up in the camaraderie of a kitchen and adopt the sense that you're letting the entire team down if you don't come in, but at the end of the day, it's only some fucking food, don't knack yourself up just to make sure some cunt can come in and buy a plate of chips, and nobody will know, care, or ever remember that you sacrificed your health or wellbeing for the team.

Not really getting that vibe from otherlad either, to be fair, but I feel it's worth saying anyway.

>doesn't have to worry about hiring about someone else

Funny thing, I'm meant to be learning the cooking bit of this place (it's two people, and I'm the porter (it's just fast food so not even difficult)) so the cook can have time off. I literally walked in to the job so I don't know why they can't another chef until one sticks so they have a spare - there are two shops and 148 hours between them both for the cook's positions. and two cooks.

I'm just torn because there are only two people responsible for the entire making of the food. If I don't come in they will be completely fucked.
OTOH I was going to quit in a month and go to somewhere with a proper timetabling system and enough staff that I can just take days off when I want.

I encourage you to do this. It sounds like they don't really know what the fuck they're doing over there, if they're not willing/able to hire anyone else or even write a proper rota, then they don't deserve you and your sense of loyalty. Let the boss do some fucking scrubbing.

It's my fault really, I was being optimistic about my abilities. And to be fair the boss does cover shifts fairly often (instead of hiring more cooks? I don't ask why).

Still it's a fuckin pita compared to all of my other jobs and the shifts go up to 12 hours to boot, of which at 4 are practically dead sales wise.

So my Three contract (24m One Plan at £33.50pm) is finally bloody ending and I'd rather not keep paying for this lacklustre Galaxy S4. It's caused me more bother than good.

Do any of you chaps have recommendations for a more modern handset, perhaps on contract at a lesser price? Stock Android is a bonus. Expandable memory is a must.

He's also got 8 kids, and a YouTube channel about freeing your mind and escaping serfdom.

He's clearly been busy since he got out of jail. But then, it was news to me he was even released. Just goes to show how fast time flies- More than a decade has passed since I was a greasy teenlad into Mayhem and Burzum. Varg has had 8 kids and all I've got is a lot of debt.

Watched Detective Pikachu tonight; If you are a fan of pokemon (as in you still actively play them as opposed to just nostalgically remember red and blue and tried pokemon go out) There is probably something you'll get out of it.

If you have no real interest in pokemon I don't expect you to find much charm in it as the ridiculous premise isn't taken to the absurd levels you would hope (the best parts of it are all in the trailer), it isn't that the film is dull but if you aren't in the 'know' I could see you getting lost and not picking up on details.

Story and characters feel mostly like they came out of an JRPG, because they did.

There is still fun to be had. And it is hard for me to separate all of my knowledge collected over the years from what someone would be able to pick up fresh, if that makes sense.

I might be being a bit harsh. It probably is a fine film to shovel popcorn into your mouth too. There is nothing wrong with it as such.

It is a detective story, but not a mystery that I think the audience can solve among with the characters. I don't think in 10 years it will be remembered for anything other than its novelty.
