  1. Hurricane Florence is knocking on our door. She's due Thursday evening. Atm it's a direct hit. Ouchie!

  2. Back to fixing bugs for a little while. A whole day to find a tiny little missing 'else' statement. Gotta love it.

      Glad somebody finally found it! :)

  3. In related news, a shadowy figure was spotted lurking outside the church. https://www.wral.com/investigation-into-weeping-virgin-mary-statue-continues/17702476/ The City Watch is investigating.

      Olive oil is good for cleaning bronzes, maybe some was left over after such a clean.

  6. Quickest way to test all the RIT your WIP AI are doing? Set "timescale N", where N>1. Hilarity ensues. Little tippy-tapping feetie sounds as they scurry around your map are certain to put a smile on your face.

      I just can't believe they'd base a movie off the most gutted version of the series in the franchise.

  8. Out walking the dog at dawn this morning. Light-sensitive streetlight at the end of the street decides it can turn itself off. House, cars, and street near the light disappear in the dark. My first thought: a visportal closed.

      Haha! That's why at work I try to avoid putting coders in an open-plan office. Sketch out your plan on a piece of paper first and cross out stuff you've done is my only advice. It helps when trying to pick up the thread.

      Just don't move any of the objectives when you're done... ;)

  10. Another silly sign: A restaurant near us has a sign that tells you when they're open. Unfortunately, it's an electric sign and when the restaurant's closed, the sign is turned off. So if you pull up off-hours to see when you can go there to eat, the sign is off and you can't read it.

      161803398874989

      Doesn't that get the essential message across? If the sign says they're open, they're open. If not, they're not.

    2. jaxa

      jaxa

      It was open. You just forgot your brick.

    3. nbohr1more

      Oh yeah. That's when your wife asks you to leave the warmth and comfort of the car to get up close to the sign. Typically in a bad neighborhood endangering both your health and safety...

      Someone needs to make an ad where they play clips of the old Google bashing, privacy focused ads from MS, but with stitched-in readings of the new terms of service in the middle.

      Me too! Your post reminded me that I hadn't gotten around to watching the show. I have literally been pausing the episodes every few minutes so I could get screenshots of the sets!

  15. From the Master Foundry's review of "Thief" (http://themasterfoundry.com/thief-revew/): "I’ve played better fan missions than Thief, I’ve played better Thief games than Thief, I’ve even played better Thief-inspired games than Thief. The Dark Mod alone is miles ahead of almost anything you’ll find here, and it’s completely free. So please make sure to give that a try before even considering giving Eidos Montreal your hard-earned money."

      Once sentence that was spot on - "Eidos Montreal tries to play it safe by pleasing all, but ends up blackjacking itself in the face with a release that ultimately impresses no one. "

  16. In TDM, I pile fences, crates, whatever on top of walls to keep the player from mantling upward. In RL, I pile pillows on the bed to keep our new dachshund from leaping from the floor to the bed. :)

      Just hang a health potion around his neck so if he takes fall damage he'll have a way to resolve it. He'll also look like an odd St. Bernard.

      For some reason I read the first line as "I pile feces". That would keep me off the wall.

      Not Even Doom Music can make working with patches less awful.

      If Doom music is not enough, you can amp it up with Brutal Doom music:

    4. Xarg

      Xarg

      Brutal Doom music *is* awesome, but NEDM is a meme, basically "even the coolest thing ever can't make what I'm doing right now less sucky".

  19. So did someone ping modetwo via email, or did he just discover the forum was down? If the latter, we need to get his email address so we don't have long outages again.

      Well, the server stil doesn't seem too stable. A few hours ago I tried to access the site, but it timed out after having worked before. Can't say when this was, though.

      Just be happy you have a sound system that works properly, unlike us Linux users. So, Windows boots and *then* you get the black screen? I was first wondering if secure boot got messed up. Some apps like LoJack change the MBR. I wonder what happens if a user installs LJ on a new W8 machine with secure boot enabled?

      Black Screen of Death is where the screen is black, the cursor works, and nothing is displayed. Has something to do with Win 8 putting the machine into a state where graphics can't paint the whole screen. Got out of it by accident, and it's been fine since.
