    JS is pretty useful to know for a ton of stuff, but in reality starting in C or C++ is better because it makes learning newer languages easier.

    You can't ignore people that don't exist.

    The issue really comes down to, I wouldn't accept that much through PP or anything.
    Python (noob language), Node (its js so kinda counts, kinda doesnt ), that POS java (again, fuck java) and fuck java. There are probably more java / js jobs than everything else, apps / front+backend web dev.

    I like C++ because I like figuring shit out. Until I have to nest so many loops within loops within ifs.

    Nah if you are moving that much money around you should be classy enough to buy a suitcase.


    The java licence is also kind of shit and JVM makes it really bloated... See minecraft

    I love ternary operators in js too much.

    This is advised against doing by anyone competent in js.
    Code:
        const rating = to1 || to2 ? this.settings.to.to1.use ? to1 ? to1.attrs.pay : `N/A` : to2 ? to2.recent.reward[1] > 0 ? `$${(tools.hourly(to2.recent.reward)).toFixed(2)}/hr` : `--/hr` : `N/A` : `New`;

    I'll drop the suitcase off at a specific location in town, and then I'll text you the location through a burner phone, to your burner phone, then toss my burner into a woodchipper. You go to the drop-off, take the suitcase, and place a plain, unmarked manila envelope with the lower left corner folded in twice, in its place. Put the secret script on a 128 GB flash drive. I'll reimburse you for it. Then once you've done that, use your burner to text my second burner, then throw your burner in the woodchipper. I'll come back, pick up the envelope, and throw my second burner into the chipper as well, douse the chipper in gasoline, and light it on fire

    No one will ever know.
