I have it on iTunes here in the US, should be in the UK as they have a bigger fan base there. Be sure you are searching nemo[i]phila[/i], and not nemo[i]philia[/i] (common mistake to add the extra 'i'). You can also buy the Oiran Extended EP and *snip*

Some of the magazines have companion disks, though you might have to dig through the archive a bit to find them. For example, [url=https://archive.org/details/antic-magazine-disks]here are the companion disks for Compute! Gazette[/url]

Stranger Things 3

Finished watching Stranger Things S3. Does not disappoint. Hopefully, it won't be another year and 9 months for season 4.

Know your Language - Bug or Feature

3rd November 2018

I'm a bit surprised. I expected it to crash on the Text command since no graphics context has been created, but it seems that B3D automatically created one.

C++ If this or that?

21st August 2018

If you need to test against such a large list of values, it might be better to use sets as they use a binary search. The maximum number of tests would be log₂n. So 18 values would require at most 5 tests. 100 values would require at most 7 tests.

C++ If this or that?

20th August 2018

I believe that conditionals in C++ are short circuiting. The right side of the || will not evaluate if the left side is true.

Firewire

13th August 2018

Firewire use to be great. For video or an external hard drive, it was necessary as USB 1.0 was way too slow. USB 3.0 (and now 3.1) has made firewire obsolete.

Steam vs Blitz

21st July 2018

I found this [url=https://github.com/nitrologic/steamstub]steamstub[/url]. Would it help? Last commit was 2 years ago, don't know how much the API has changed in that time, but the source may be easy to modify for the current one.

Angle - Staying in the 360 range - how?

21st June 2018

Problem with Mod is that it doesn't work when the result is negative.
[code]
Angle = 5
Print (Angle - 10) Mod 360
[/code]
You would want 355, but you will get -5 instead.

I will usually use rockford's method if I know the change in angle wi*snip*

Lost In Spaaaace

Finished watching the series. First couple of episodes were not that great, but it does get better. Not much originality though. Seems a though they just took a bunch of ideas from other tv shows and movies.

Lost In Spaaaace

15th April 2018

Watched episodes 1 and 2. Think I enjoyed the movie more. Episode 2 was a bit better than one, maybe it will get better as the season goes.

The C64 Mini

1st April 2018

.d64 image:
You can use quick save feature to save the .d64 image, so next time it loads faster, but there are only 4 slots for this.

Still say it is easier to just download an emulator.

Mathematic Grid Puzzle
