When I was learning Linux it was drilled into my head. Everything is a file. What this meant was that all input/output’s (documents, directories, hard-drives, modems, keyboards, printers, network communications, etc. ) were byte steams exposed through the filesystem name space. But what if it’s a windows file?
This football season was like no other for me personally. Mostly that is because I wrote a system to evaluate football games (The Pigskin Prognosticator) and teams before the season kicked off.
This colored how I viewed every week and every game. I found I was way more interested in how my pigskin prognostications went then I was any particular team’s results. I now have a better understanding of how gamblers (and FF players) interact with football.
The tech part of this project is interesting personally. It will be my last PHP project. I have started a serious monogamous relation with Python. The jury is out on how many more times I’ll use MySQL but that is another story…
