Is Climate Change and Global Warming Fake News?

It’s really not fake news. The global average temperature is definitely on the rise. What could be considered fake news is how much humans have contributed to the rise in temperature. This is difficult, but not impossible to determine. I think the correlation of the data charted on these two sites is very telling.

So Yes, global warming is real and humans are responsible.  The next question is, “will it stop or can it be stopped?”  That’s a much harder question to answer!

How to fix Git for Windows login error via HTTPS

There are a lot of ways to login to a Git server, which means there are a lot of ways to also fail. I have a suggestion for you if, after trying everything else, you are still getting this error:

remote: invalid username or password. if you log in via a third party service you must ensure you have an account password set in your account profile.

Open a command prompt as administrator and enter the following commands:

git config –global –unset credential.helper

git config –system –unset credential.helper

Make sure you do both.

Now attempt to pull from the server again. This time you should be asked for your user name and password. Make sure you use the username that is in the URL of your request. For example, in this URL: https://gituser@sirspot.com the user name is gituser.

I hope this helped!

 

Hour of Code

Last year I went to 3 schools for Hour of Code.  This year I have already been to 3 schools and am schedule to visit 2 more schools before the end of the week.  The students range in age from 6 years old to 13 years old.  I tailor my presentation to each class based on how responsive the students are.  It is a lot of fun!  If you don’t know what Hour of Code is, you can visit the official site here: https://code.org/learn but basically it is just a week out of the year when we try to get students interested in computer programming.  Have a great week and give the Hour of Code a try!

Qt 5.7 Designer Hangs and Causes VS2013 to Hang

Apparently designer.exe hangs if the new webengine dlls are present.  The dlls can be removed, but then, what if you need them?  The easiest way around this problem for me was to use the mingw Qt 5.7 binaries for designer.exe (without including webengine) and leave the vs2013 binaries alone.  I’m sure Qt will be fixed soon, but this will get you rolling in the mean time.  Happy Coding!
