As time goes by, I'm appreciating Microsoft more and more. Why does it seem like they're the only big tech company out there besides Apple what don't have some sort of horrible hidden agenda?

Probably because they're one of the few remaining tech giants who rose to prominence and kept that status before Silicon Valley was what we know it as today, so they're moreso a traditional company than they are an activist company.

I'd say either automating some boring, repetitive task you do on your computer or something that you think would be interesting but would take too long manually. An example of the former might be a program I wrote that took the CSV output from machines I worked with, collated them into one spreadsheet file, and computed averages. An example of the latter might be a program that combs through the post history of a lolcow and counts the number of time they say a certain set of words. Python is good for web scraping and has a lot of libraries that make it easy, so if you have any interest in that I'd say go for it.
If you go with web scraping, use the Requests library. Urllib3 is Satan.

About Us

The Kiwi Farms is about eccentric individuals and communities on the Internet. We call them lolcows because they can be milked for amusement or laughs. Our community is bizarrely diverse and spectators are encouraged to join the discussion.

We do not place intrusive ads, host malware, sell data, or run crypto miners with your browser. If you experience these things, you have a virus. If your malware system says otherwise, it is faulty.

How to Help

The Kiwi Farms is constantly attacked by insane people and very expensive to run. It would not be here without community support.
