Neat!

I was literally thinking about SoCoder needing this the other day, too!

Not because I use SoCoder to securely store my bank details or anything, but because Google Chrome pops up "not secure" every time I log in and its mildly annoyin<snip>

IE Keeps Empty Elements

Yup! Old IE might not *render* it properly but no its still there!

Server Blip 2 - Electric Boogaloo

30th November 2017

It's cheating, but cronjobs are so annoying to write I just have one that runs every single minute.

That's just one job, that checks to see if there are any *actual* jobs that need doing as that user.

It used to be just one strong cup in the morning for me but it obviously didn't agree with me.

The other helpful thing is now that I can't rely on coffee in the morning I have to make sure I'm not tired another way - by getting enough sleep!<snip>

Command Prompt Here

20th November 2017

I know right! You can shift right click the folder you are in to do it, but ONLY if there aren't enough files to fill the window so that there is space to do it in. Typing CMD is gonna be way easier so thanks haha

IIRC you can Shift+Right Click a folder to get more options (like "open command window here") from Windows 7. Everyone probably knows that one though!

Some OpenGL tips that might be helpful.

1. Textures

The huge texture thing is a super common optimisation. OpenGL will take 8192x8192 textures with no sweat, and prefers it to switching between textures (which is SLOW!!!). I doubt there's a machi<snip>

I know you're probably all settled with your framework now buuuuuutttt

OpenAL and GLFW3 both work with plain C, minus the plus plus bit! Much simpler!

Okay this works for Debian and as Ubuntu is based on Debian it *should* work.

This will let you compile 32-bit versions as well from the same 64-bit OS

[code] # Enable 32-bit support
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

# Get 3<snip>

Ahhh I'm on my mobile so I can't explain properly but honestly it's easy! What are the commands you are using to compile now?

You can compile *for* 32 bit Linux pretty easily on Debian and Ubuntu. Look up enabling multiarch. Then you install 32 bit dependencies like "apt-get install something:386" and compile with "gcc -m32"

If its a "fake 3D effect in 2D perspective" it looks to me like the texture UV coordinates are off?

cross-platform stuff is harddd

I still have to support 32 bit windows because the wine64 package is out of date and the wine-development package is 32 bit and building it from source is a paaaaaaain

sigh, the perfect combination of Linux bugs today. A bug is fine, except there's a bug in the fix. soooo. Who needs to support 32 bit Linux these days anyway righttt?

Mingw is pretty fab though. I have it on Linux so I can cross compile Windows programs and it works really well!
