A Place for Conversation Topics That Don't Fit Anwhere Else
Oh man, this SO makes we want to resurrect Manifest Destiny...
No! Bad Ron! Must continue working on current project....
I've been trying to get a copy of Windows 8 at work for about 6 months. I kept asking the IT guy, who's in another office in another state, and he would ignore me on the topic, until I got my boss to ask. Then he said--in January--he had an idea but needed to wait for it to firm up, and he'd let...
(Asking here because Ron's been talking about graphics stuff)
A friend of mine just updated her graphics card drivers (nVidia) and suddenly the textures in the only game she has installed (Sims 3) have gone all "smudgey".
It looks like the textures are getting blurred or interpolated(?) more...
Imagine I have a std::vector full of wstrings. (It could be strings, I suppose, but I prefer these days to use wide characters.)
What's the best (or at least a good) way to create a single string out of the vector and put some formatting in? This doesn't work:
Oh man, this is frikkin' hilarious, especially if you are a Game of Thrones fan like I am. Go check out this video. I'll copy over the lyrics, but they don't do the song justice, you have to go watch:
George R. R....
Everything other than the web site is down right now. This means you character planner contributors won't be able to grab any code updates and you Dungeon Crawl testers won't be able to update your games.
I apparently had a router fail on me this morning. Which is annoying because I...
Ron, i'm new to the forum, but i wanted to first thank you for the planner. it's awesome, and i literally use it daily. To that point i was wondering if you had ever been approached to port it to the iPAD? i am just getting into programming, and purchased my dev account for apple. I was looking...
I will add my small voice to the uproar. You can send a message to the ESA that, until they change their stance on SOPA/PIPA, we will not support them. E3 is the ESAs main source of revenue. I would encourage everyone not to attend, and definitely...
It's been too quiet here recently. Apparently those bug catching guys are too good... Anyways, just figured I'd say hi. I'm still alive. And all that. I haven't really been playing DDO lately,(60 day guess pass from RL friend for Eve Online) but I do check to make sure they aren't changing things.
You guys may have caught on to the fact that I wasn't here last week. The wife and I were actually in London, but I thought it was best not to advertise in advance the fact that no one was going to be here for a week. It was part business but also part vacation, and we had a great time.
Anyone know much about this? I have a document I need to turn into a mail merge. It's got a bunch of stuff like this:
Employee Name: ________________________ Date __/__/__
where the date is right-justified, and the underline where someone would hand-write the name on a piece of paper fills...
Words fail me.
...once you've amassed enough knowledge and read MSDN enough times.
No MFC, no ATL, no typelibs, either, just raw C++ and a little STL for convenience.
This picture made me laugh so hard I was nearly crying.
Of course, you'd have to know who Rebecca Black is and what she did, to get the joke(and if you do, I'm sorry). Some good...
Well, has everyone gone into lurk mode, or are we completely a completely dead board now?
Oh well, I can talk to myself for a while, until some interest in Enzyme starts getting generated :)
Anyone else looking forward to playing this game, or am I the only one that likes being an evil overlord? :)
I've never served on a jury, though I've been close twice now.
I think this probably only works for criminal cases, as that's the only type I've been considered for. But it works every time.
Just tell them you have a scientific background. They can't get rid of you fast enough.
Merry Christmas everyone.
That's right, I went there! :)
I put this up because whenever they say the tag line (and I think it is Sean Bean saying it), it gives me chills. I may get HBO just to watch this series, heh.
It's almost enough to make me get over my bitterness that the series is in...
Feeeeeeaaaaarrrrrrr. Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Beeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrdddddddddddddddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
