Win8 Preview

8th March 2012

Hey guys, yeah I'm still around.

I haven't looked much into the new Windows 8 (no I'm not going to try the demo), but... this Metro thing, is it supposed to allow apps to run on a PC _and_ tablets / smartphones too? That would sound pretty cool - but t*snip*

Learning WebDev

21st February 2012

On the subject of learning SQL, I also found it pretty much useless - until I got into web development. SQL doesn't become powerful until you're working with it through your code, instead of a command prompt. From your PHP pages you can easily siphon dat*snip*

Steam Hack

10th November 2011

Guess I'm lucky I never purchased anything on there. Only signed up to get Portal 1 free (when it was available).

Graphics Libraries

9th July 2011

The only way I know to learn any of these is to rely on online sources such as tutorials and documentation. That may be the largest factor in choosing which library you choose, because if you can't find help on something its that much harder to use (if yo*snip*

Candy from a baby

5th July 2011

Afro, I think you missed the point of the article. Someone had gotten ahold of someone's phone, who had been killed, and was using it. They even deleted messages from their inbox, making the parents believe the girl was still alive.

Candy from a baby

5th July 2011

What I don't understand is, this happened some 8-9 years ago, phones weren't too capable back then. If this is a legitimate, large business, couldn't these people afford their own cellphones?

That would have taken up a whole lot of server space...

Portal 2 Spoilery/Discussion Stuff

25th April 2011

The dialogue in the first one was good, too. For example, "If you feel thirsty, feel free to pass out. An associate will come shortly to assist you." Yeah when? In a thousand years? lol

Insane Lego Ball trip!

23rd April 2011

I had legos as a kid too - a big bucket of them. I discovered that if you shook the bucket for long enough, the larger pieces would float to the top, and smaller pieces sunk to the bottom. Basic settling theory, since all the pieces were the same density*snip*

Luvly Weather

23rd April 2011

Around my area its been rain, rain and more rain - oh, and lightning through the night. My wife jumps every time it flashes so she has to keep the light on... lots of sleepless nights for me!

Portal 2 Spoilery/Discussion Stuff

21st April 2011

Shroom, I found that to be true, unfortunately you had to have a working version of Half Life 2, which I don't, in order to use Hammer. There was an in-game editor, a kind of hacked-in type editor, not by Valve, but the controls and effects were limited -*snip*

Portal 2 Spoilery/Discussion Stuff

21st April 2011

I was interested in the first portal since the first time I saw it. After playing it for a while (got it free from a steam special) I'm interested in Portal 2, but too bad I can't afford it. Portal 2 should be a fun game, especially the cooperative level*snip*

Insane Lego Ball trip!

18th April 2011

I liked where they separated the basketballs from the soccer balls... too bad they didn't actually do anything with them after that.

This guy should be hired to build a factory!

scrap the forum?

8th April 2011

What about a button on the shouts to let people save shout posts? Hmm... well, if we make the shoutbox threaded, we could move shouts with lots of replies to the forum, once the shout group is left alone long enough.

...or, maybe a 'save section' could*snip*

Government Shutdown

I read an article a few months ago about what Republicans do in order to win elections. Basically they filibuster every major legislature so that the government can't do anything. This makes the whole government look bad (they like doing it more when dem*snip*

On the subject of IBM projects, what would someone ever use more computing power for, at least these days? Assuming a million dollar computer setup could comprehend and answer complex problems in real-time, what would a 10-million dollar computer be able *snip*

Design : A better programming file format

16th February 2011

I think it would be neat to insert images into the text of code, for the purpose of better documentation. I've had instances where I'd like to describe the objective of code using an image, instead of describing it using text.

I think its really a matter of how Walter was built. I mean, if it already has all the facts organized into different subjects, then it wouldn't be hard for a program to manage all the Jepoardy questions. If, on the other hand, it only had pages from dif*snip*

Choosing a programing language

7th February 2011

Afro, that sucks, but I'm sure one could devise a work-around. If the connections reach the limit, you could use a tree system, where new players are connected to other players with a good connection. Data can then pass through that connection. If the m*snip*

Virtual machine / assembler design

7th December 2010

This might not be the route you wanted to go, but I had an idea of an assembler with a different approach: the plan was to keep it simple yet capable. Graphics and keyboard operations were handled by a device command; memory was managed like an array (or *snip*

Clean Your Machine

Clean Your Machine

3rd December 2010

I've heard that sawdust and the like is harmless to your harddrive, yet cigarette smoke will kill it faster than anything. Its particles are smaller, allowing it to get into the small holes of the drive.

PixelPaton gets F'd in the A'

17th November 2010

That would actually be neat if this guy was trying to function as a publisher, providing the game owners with a share of the profits. But he is obviously spreading copyright work - and making money from it, and then trying to tell people its legal.

For a system like that, I wouldn't be worried about how them being hooked up to the internet, I would be worried about what other programs have snuck their way into the systems, and then able to sneak off with credit card data.
