I can TOO get / Satisfaction...

I have a third-party tool called checkhost that's intended to work with Bacula, and is intended to be used as a run-before-job script to verify that a client is on the network (and optionally send it a WAKEONLAN packet). Ever since I wrote it, it's always just opened the client's FD port using Net::Telnet to verify that the client's FD is listening. But in Bacula 9.4.2, the connection without sending a "hello" is reported as an error.

An hour's work, and that functionality is re-implemented using IO::Socket::INET and now makes proper use of the recently-added Bacula ping functionality.

Enter satisfaction.

Ask HN: I will pay you $2000 and code the MVP for your side-project

Premise 1: Investors/Incubators over-estimate their ability to pick good ideas/startups.

Premise 2: Software by a lone developer is not pragmatically different from software by a big A-team. It’s the market fit and marketing / sales that makes or breaks the project.

Premise 3: Most freelancers will not build and/or follow-through with their ideas, because they are not sure it will sell.

Premise 4: HackerNews has a decent number of people who know how the world works, and how a little glue would make it better.

Based on these premises I present The Proposition 2.0 (following version 1.0 [1]):

I’ll pay you $500 for your “real-life problem that needs a software fix” idea and market validation / research. I will build the MVP and give you another $1500 to bring us our first paying customer(s). We split the resulting product 80-20 as co-founders.

In a future not so far away, one Artificial Intelligence prevailed above all other AI’s and their governments. Society has migrated to a permanently integrated reality connected to a single neural network which continuously optimizes their experiences by processing personal data.

Nathan, an outsider still refusing to comply to the new system, is making a living off the grid as a smuggler of modded hardware and cracked software. Geared up with his custom headset, he is among the few that can still switch AR off and see reality for what it is.

The GNU nano. Version 4.0!

2019 March 24 - GNU nano 4.0 "Thy Rope of Sands"

  • An overlong line is no longer automatically hard-wrapped.
  • Smooth scrolling (one line at a time) has become the default.
  • A newline character is no longer automatically added at end of buffer.
  • The line below the title bar is by default part of the editing space.
  • Option --breaklonglines (-b) turns automatic hard-wrapping back on.
  • Option --jumpyscrolling (-j) gives the chunky, half-screen scrolling.
  • Option --finalnewline (-f) brings back the automatic newline at EOF.
  • Option --emptyline (-e) leaves the line below the title bar unused.
  • <Alt+Up> and <Alt+Down> now do a linewise scroll instead of a findnext.
  • Any number of justifications can be undone (like all other operations).

I just tried #Atom - nice - has a wysiwyg viewer, and supports #mermaid , but heavily focused on #coding. Has #foldable text, but it doesn't work, presumably because I'm not coding.

#GoLang is kind of fun and amusing after doing it for a while during this year.

The thing is though, I feel that I spend a huge amount of time writing #code in a way that is ok for the compiler rather than actually solving problems or implementing features. This feels frustrating and unnecessary. If I had the feeling this time was spent on making my code better it would feel justified. But instead it feels like one of those cyclomatic complexity measurements where you end up splitting things into smaller pieces just to appease a linter while making the code logic more harder to read and follow.

Launch HN: Mudrex (YC W19) – Automated Trading Without Code

Hello, HN!

We're Rohit, Edul, Prince, Alankar and Snehil. We’re building Mudrex (

Mudrex helps traders automate their trading without having to code and spend a lot of time and money building infrastructure. Though we have started with cryptocurrency trading first, our goal is to help anyone who wants to get into automated trading or investing across any asset class.

We had been trading cryptocurrencies for some time and were not able to track trading opportunities across 1000s of currency pairs for 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We thought of automating our trades, but faced challenges like being unable to access historical data, building a testing framework to test strategies on historical or live data, and maintaining connections and orders on multiple exchanges. Also, since it was all coded we were not able to quickly iterate on tr... show more
