Monthly Tee Club

Time to switch up my TShirts a bit. The last TShirt I bought was a [url=https://socoder.net/uploads/1/2021/03/Thunderface_Corner_Gas.jpeg]Corner Gas one[/url], but prior to that, we're going right back to the LootCrate tees, and they went bankrupt YON*snip*

I do not know how ssd's manage their cycles but I know it should have a good space free at all times to function correctly. It can only use a particular storage cell for a number of times before end of life. I think I would not go with a 256 myself eve*snip*

I definitely wouldn't have gone with 128, knowing how clusterf*kd OSes can be.
I opted for 256, and I'm glad that I did.
I'm hovering around 95Gb free, but keep in mind that's with the OS, the software I've installed, and also all my *snip*

How is the Hardisk space going? My old laptop with 128gb ssd was giving messages that space was running out early on.

Stir Fried Brexit

20th January 2021

Bloody Brexit! Grrr!!

I do like the frozen stir fry. Mostly because it allows me to enjoy a stir fry whenever I feel the energy to make one. (Rarely!)
If I buy fresh stir fry veg, it's usually 3 months out of date by the time I get around to it!

Installed Steam, yesterday.
Not a single one of my library is runnable on the Mac, either because .. it's not Windows! .. or because the games haven't been updated to be M1 compatible.
Not one.
Half Life 1/2, Portal 1/2, nada.
Bah, humbug..

Star Trek Discovery - Season Three

19th January 2021

Honestly as a HUGE trek fan - and I liked Discovery Season One - I couldn't finish season two. HATED S02E04 (the soppy one with Saru). Looking forward to trying season three as it sounds better!

ST Picard was great

Tip of the day : Shift and Winkey (Broken Pipe) and Volume buttons = change the volume at smaller increments.
Without it, I have the option of 0 = mute, 1 = loud enough, 2 = too loud for a migraine. With this, I can easily go to 1.5, and that's much *snip*

Disney Plus

Mandalorian was ok, I don't think it was worth the hype though, but I'm not a mega starwars fan. Wandavision seems good so far, we watched a lot of the animal kingdom behind the scenes thing about the zookeepers and animals and stuff, there should *snip*

You Never Learned..

Yeah, I had not thought of rotation and scaling:) Functions for rotating and scaling a array I have not seen anywhere yet.

There is a cheap book I bought on 2d collision but I did not seen anything like that in there. It just said you combine multiple *snip*

@ Pakz. Yeah, the simple stuff's easy enough.
But then you add rotation and scaling, and everything goes out the window!
At some point, it's quicker to just box-collide!

You Never Learned..

I learned about pixel based collision back when I was learning to use visual basic. I discovered the bitblit function and it's masks which were used back than for drawing transparent pixels. These masks were I think white at the parts of pixels that we*snip*

What thing have you never learned, but probably should have?

For me.. Pixel-based collisions. I've avoided those for YEARS, and have used bounding-box or similar for hundreds of games, including some which really could've done with better.

The main reason I disable my trackpad is generally not because of poor accuracy (the one I have now is superb and does exactly what I need it to), but jut that most of the time, while typing, I hover above the trackpad with my palms and it reads my movemen*snip*
