    I actually have three questions to put here... here are the other two: 2. What should I get? 3. Will a wireless modem interfere with other devices' RF? My whole household uses AT&T U-verse and let me just say, it's complete trash. My download speed is a cool 2mbps. Because of this, I'm thinking of purchasing a router of my own to go in my room where I have an Xbox One. So that brings me to the second question. What should I get? I don't want anything over $200, but I do want something fairly powerful. I don't know much about this kind of thing, but I did some research and found that the NETGEAR Nighthawk is a good bet. The Nighthawk is wireless, so obviously it uses RF. But both my controller and headset are wireless. Will it affect them? I've heard of other people having connection problems.

    Best answer: The dark web is not solely for nefarious purposes. It can also help people anonymously report atrocities in countries where free speech is not only restricted but punishable. The correct definition is: It's a part of the World Wide Web that is only accessible by means of special software, allowing users and website operators to remain anonymous or untraceable. Is it scary? I guess it depends on if you're easily frightened or your age. Take clowns for example some people like them others are frightened by them. Is sad Satan scary? I don't even know how to answer that. I guess probably as scary as a angry Jesus. As for the rest of your questions just go to http://bfy.tw/E0Kj and all your answers will be revealed

    Best answer: I guess there aren't any programming languages that really nobody uses anymore.

    Some old assembly languages are tempting answer. But, for example, Z-80, that I share with husoski, is still used, since Z-80 is still sold as a micro-controller.

    Almost all languages have some still existing code requiring maintenance somewhere.

    You would probably consider Cobol a dead language, for example. Yet, my country only started this year a project to reprogram the ID card management framework in another language. So, taking into account the usual speed of administration, I guess Cobol will still be the language of our ID card framework till at least 2027

    As far as I am concerned, declining languages that I am "proficient" (or at least once was) in are:

    Z80 (I've use it in 2016, to play with by Osborne-1),
    6502 (long time ago, for a vic-20)
    Pascal, and Modula-2
    BASIC (but I've used variants in 2017 for customers)
    Algol 60
    Fortran (still use it from times to times, for maintenance of code for customers)
    ADA
    Scheme (still my favorite language - I wrote one interpreter, that is still used by a some researcher around the world). But unfortunately, I do not have many opportunities to use it in my current job.


    But here, I've listed what probably lot of people would consider "old languages that almost nobody use". In reality, almost none of them deserve such a classification. Sure, there are all less used than they used to be. Nevertheless, most of them have a solid niche, that will not disappear in near future.
    Even Fortran is often said to be "obsolete". Yet it will certainly not disappear in my life time. I know lot of researcher younger than I am that use it as their main programming language (eg in oceanography).
    BASIC dialect is still used in modern applications (the interpreter with probably the most complete API on android is a BASIC interpreter!)
    Scheme is not even dying. Less popular than it was, sure. But still a must in some domain (IA, obviously. But also for GIMP scripts, for example)
    ADA, although declining even in its own niche (military or space application) has a solid user base in its niche.

    It that list, Modula-2, Algol 60 and 6502 are probably the only languages that are really dying. But even those won't be totally forgotten before a long time. As long as there are some geeks playing with old Atari-2600, Vic-20, or even Tamagochi, there will be some code written in 6502

    And I don't really know who is using Modula-2 and Algol 60, but since there are some compiler, still maintained, for both those language, I guess that there are some users.
