finance - Caching and updating OHLC historical stock quotes locally

OK, I don't mean for this to be another "how do I get historical stock data" question.I've already found plenty of readily available sources for that, even neatly exported into direct CSV downloads from the likes of Google Finance and Yahoo and Finviz.Software I write actively uses handy tools including YahooFinance and Dirk Eddelbuettel's fine Beancounter.My question is, perhaps especially if anyone's familiar with beancounter, when I query for a single stock's end-of-day prices, how can I make sure all that historical data gets cached (for in...Read more

quotes - Who wrote this programing saying? "Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live."

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.I found this at somebody's blog, and it introduces as Rick Osborne's. But I google this, and other people says: Martin Golding's, John Woods' and Damian Conway's... Yes, Damian Conway used this quote in "Perl Best Practices" (2005) but Damian doesn't mention who wrote it.Does anybody know who the real author of this aphorism is?...Read more

An excerpt from Programming Perls:A Simple Design : Antonie de Saint-Exupery, the Fresh writer and aircraft designer, said that,*"A designer knows he has arrived at perfection not when there is no longer anything to add,but when there is no longer anything to take away."* More programmers should judge their work by this criteria.Can any one elaborate this, please?What does the author mean when he say "...TAKE AWAY"...Read more

How do I quote a paragraph that already has a footnote?

Suppose I have the following paragraph that already has a footnote in it: This was a misunderstanding from some imprecise writing (and was related to #14 above). The argument is with respect to the size of shoots not needles. \footnote{This has been clarified in the discussion at great length.}How do I quote the above paragraph with quotation marks? What do I do with the footnote in the paragraph?...Read more

quotes - Did Tony Benn say this about "the establishment"?

I don't think people realise how the establishment became established. They simply stole land and property from the poor, surrounded themselves with weak minded sycophants for protection, gave themselves titles and have been wielding power ever sinceI've been seeing this image spreading around facebook and thought I'd google the quote to see when he said it/the context, and found nothing.Did he actually say this or has it been misattributed to him?...Read more

quotes - Did the former prime minister of UK say this about the Koran?

There was a heated argument between news presenter Piers Morgan and Tommy Robinson. Here is the video for those interested.He makes a claim: Sir William Gladstone held this book above his head in Parliament and said "There will never be peace on this Earth so long as we have this book. It's a violent and cursed book."I am trying to verify the William Gladstone quote and I get results from what seem to be very biased sources.Is this quote correct?...Read more

quotes - Did Roger Ailes say "the truth is whatever people will believe" or something substantially similar?

The below image popped up on Facebook apparently alleging that Roger Ailes, president of the Fox News Channel, said: "The truth" is whatever people will believe.The peculiar placement of the quote marks makes it unclear whether this is intended as a direct quote attributed to Roger Ailes or is just commentary.Google reveals that Joseph Heller said something very much like this in his 1984 book God Knows: "The truth is whatever people will believe is the truth. Don't you know history?"But I can find no reference to Roger Ailes having said this...Read more

Did Hitler ever make this quote?

Found this one floating around going viral. Has the moment that Richard Spencer was punched in the face, followed by this quote. "Only one thing could have stopped our movement - if our adversaries had understood its principle and from the first day smashed with the utmost brutality the nucleus of our new movement." - Adolph Hitler...Read more

Did Einstein say this quote about war & patriotism?

Can this quote be correctly attributed to Albert Einstein? If so, can we have a source for it? He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of...Read more

I have read the following quote that is attributed to Albert Einstein: The aim of education must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, see in the service to the community their highest life problem.This sounds plausible, but there are many quotes that are misattributed to him; so did he actually say this?...Read more
