The "test" post was done through python.

The hardest part was working out how to download the python module that I used for it.

"pip install requests" would do it.

I would have thought so too. That was doing nothing for me.

"python -m pip install requests" (I think) sorted it out in the end.

I am not going to use python to cheat at any games, don't worry. :P

If I can actually get it doing something useful, I'd make a separate "bot" account. Using it on Double Post would therefore not actually be any good to me.

Prolly a mismatch between your Python runtime version and that of pip (one being version 3 and the other 2). Or whatever the fuck else. Windows is hard.

My Python is 3.4, and there is a file called pip3.4 in there, so I would've assumed it was all the same. Meh.

Then it probably falls into the "whatever the fuck else" category.

I used to program a lot for fun, but now I just do it to make my life and workflow easier. My system consists of an embarrassingly fragile network of bash scripts and dotfiles as a result.

I have some semi-useful things in Python, but I usually don't even bother.

I was going to make a joke about your "system" being something to do with your body, then realised that you're already a robot in your avatar! So it applies anyway.

I guess my situation is the converse of this. Why would I want to work with programming when I don't even find it worthwhile at home? But I don't really know anything else I'm even remotely qualified to do.

Not sure how much this applies in general, but there are jobs that like that you have a degree even if it's not relevant. I don't know of anyone on my team at work who actually studied something computer-related.

I guess. The bigger issue might be that I'm not really familiar with what you can do for a living.

Are there recruitment companies you can sign up to that just look for any jobs that you're qualified for? That's how I got mine - I didn't know what a "technical business analyst" was until they got me the interview. (To be honest, I didn't really know what it was until I'd already had the job for a while...)
