i mean i have passive income and i can live in Netherlands with it, but I can't just give 11k euros to them, i get money monthly. I'll contact them about it and fingers crossed they'll let me enter.

meanwhile, a university I want to enter in Netherlands sent me a letter that I need to pay a tuition (it's fine) and a proof of financial means total of 19000 euros. It's illegal and prohibited to send more than $10k from russia to any "unfriendly" country :/

@Awaclus, I've followed you (heighthater), although I mostly lurk on Twitter, rarely write something and it's usually in russian

alright, so I started thinking about this sudoku task and I want some help to give me a push in a right direction. Here are my thoughts so far:

I created 9 lists, named after the rows (so a-i) containing 9 numbers each (for now those are zeroes, but if there are numbers at the start I take those as inputs(?) to add to these lists.
Say, the starting condition is that in f2 cell is a number 5. So user inputs 'f' -> '2' -> '5', which I then change in an f dictionary by

sudoku[row_input][column_input - 1] = number_input

After that I create some statements comparing values of each list to

a) values of the list itself
b) values of each corresponding value in other list
c) values of values in a lists that correspond to the square they're in (so for instance a1 is compared with a2, a3, b1-3, c1-3.

if there is a match, I change the value to += 1 and if it's >9, it becomes 1 again.

The problems I am thinking of are:

1) How to tell that I don't want to change the values of a user (so the starting position is immutable)
2) I feel like I am choosing a complicated way, but I can't think of something that would help me here.

Note that you can compile python code online if you don't have anything set  up on your pc:

Fwiw I also didn't see anything particularly wrong with the code except that it's not commented. If you got this far in a few days, you've certainly outpaced the standard learning speed.

oh also I did get this far, but 3 or 4 years ago I passed the whole "Python for beginners" course on Coursera and I still remember... I'd call it the set of mind that I need to code on Python.

I have mac, I don't need a compiler as far as I'm concerned

Nice I beat a sandshrew and a rattata on the first try :-)

cool cool! There are some accuracy checks as well. Funny story is that when I was testing I assigned accuracy of 50% to Tackle and I have lost 5 times in a row due to the fact I need to hit Tackle twice to defeat rattata

so I am learning Python, as you may know, and today I have spent 4 hours doing and polishing a very short but in my opinion quite cool game of Pokemon. It's a text game (for now)

I have used dictionaries, loops, import, basically every thing I have learned. And I just want to brag about my decisions in it, so I'm going to attach it here and if you have time and want to comment it, go ahead, that would be cool (i can't attach .py, so I attach txt and hope it'll work as intended)

Agree that was pretty cool :-)


Kf3 -> Qc2 -> Kf4 -> Qc1#

yup, of course.

Now i think I should've spoilered my answer :(

By the way I still have a copy of the digital book I've used to learn python, which I liked a lot, and it certainly starts from nothing. Obviously not going to help with your bigger problem of getting hired somewhere, but let me know if you want it anyway.

Sure!

so, um, desperation is looming above me, because I am starting to think I can't do anything that can make money for living? I am trying to take courses on Python right now, but I feel like it's not enough to try to get internship in another country, because why would anyone want me without any experience and also I should spend quite a while learning before I even can apply to internship. This is scaring a bit

Isn't the point of internships specifically to recruit people who don't have any experience?

well, yes, but if they can recruit someone from their own country, why would they take a hard way of officially employing a foreigner?

I mean, because they have a good day, because they like you, because you've been convincing in an interview... employers aren't like cold rational calculators, they're human beings. Have you actually tried and failed or just don't like your chances?

today I spent the whole day sending cvs, cover letters, writing messages to different companies and universities. Haven't got an answer yet, but waiting for it. But yeah, I don't like my chances too much. There is also a thing, that I am russian and many companies understandably do not like that from what my peers say.

What about other areas? As a translator or as a tutor?

It brings less money, but it's an opportunity for sure. I tried a couple of companies as Game Localization Editor, but they didn't want to help me relocate to their place, although I was ready to work remotely *shrug*

The ideal thing for me rn would be relocating to some civilization (I don't want to say Armenia is a bad country, it's just not so technologically advanced from what I gathered in the last three weeks) and then tyr the internship. I got an idea of trying to enter a university and I have some in mind, but turns out it's now too late for entering for September classes, although I have sent some of them messages of current situation and my greatest wish to enter. Another thing that my business didn't endure the economic blow and the money I have left from it are not sustainable for tuition, given how rouble is now close to dead.

point is - if I could bring something professional to the table, I would have chances to get a job abroad, but as an intern without experience, I don't

and in general I wouldn't complain about something that happens here, that would be a weird dishonest passive-aggressive signaling

yeah, I thought that was weird

I mean you *could* also leave because you are rationally afraid of war, but I doubt that's why most people leave.

Do you think you would have left if your country was the one being invaded rather than vice versa?

Well, it depends on the cause. If I were from Ukraine right now, I think I wouldn't leave. Although I can not fathom the hell Ukrainians are going through right now, so I really don't know. If I stayed in Russia and then the tide turned and Russia would be being invaded for what they did with Ukraine, I would've left immediately.

Initially I would say I left because I wanted to have nothing to do with that country any more.
