Yes, yes, toes are resiliant that way. :yes:  Would you like me to buy you a pedicure?

The nail polish on my toes has chipped a lot since prom, which is logical considering prom was a month and a half ago, but it's frustrating since I've been wearing flip flops. We don't have nail polish remover (and they don't sell it at the grocery store near my house[???]), so I can't get rid of it, but I don't have the same color nail polish, so I can't repaint it. I feel weird going out in public with my toes showing but clearly not meant for public viewing!

Ahhh, the toe-related tribulations I face on a daily basis. :P

Post by: crayauchtin on June 27, 2010, 12:17:58 AM
Feet are icky. As a result, so are toes. Toes may even be ickier than feet. :\

But I have to cut my toenails tomorrow.
Also, need to get my hair did.
I have too much to do though, so the hair is probably going to have to wait... (No, that's not my entire to do list!)

I have to paint clear polish on my fingernails to keep from biting them.

I do not have the same problem with my toes, for the record.

Rob you should have just invested in nail varnish remover...or asked a female relation to borrow theirs...it would have come off a lot quicker!

I think I have a bottle of nail polish or two somewhere... maybe... almost never use the stuff.

Oh, just realized I still have nail polish on my toes from almost 3 months ago. It's close to flesh color so it's really hard to see. :P

You know, all these times I've played KQ6, I've never seen this guard dog before. :P

I've only seen him show up in the basement after the wedding music starts. He seems to be a Doberman.
Kinda funny how he doesn't show up as much as the other two guard dog types... :P

So...I was writing about King's Quest today (since that's what my paper is on) my title was "My Journey Through Daventry."

Understandably, Word underlined Daventry in red to tell me that it was misspelled, so I right-clicked it with the intention of telling Word to add it to the dictionary when I noticed one of the suggestions was "Adventure."

...This is totally not a coincidence and that's entirely where Daventry comes from, isn't it?

My mind is blown, and I'm not sure whether it's because this is world-shattering or because it's 3 AM.

Discuss.

I would also argue that well-made video games can expand your mind. Bioshock, Half Life 2, and King's Quest have all made me think in ways that only good books and movies can.

I played Half-Life 2 my freshman year in college and I agree... That game makes me reflect, think, and feel in ways I never thought possible. I know it isn't adventure, but Half-Life 2 is an astounding game on all levels. I have yet, since that game, found a game that made me feel even remotely the same way.

I love getting into debates with friends about video games.  We even talked about Bayonetta and why the creators picked the designs that they used for the different type of angels, and that game's supposed to be just Devil May Cry with strip teasing.

The only paper I recall ever writing about a video game was a research paper on Final Fantasy X and X-2 and the role of the Church of Yevon in the games as well as comparisons to our religions.

For some reason, the commands and interface in vi seem needlessly complicated to me while vim seems so much more natural/intuitive.

So did mine. He was actually part of the huge committee that worked on standardizing Fortran (the F70 standard, IIRC).

Yes, yes, it does. (It's the 72nd column, btw.) Do you have any idea how frustrating and unnerving it is to go from writing a program in C to writing a couple lines in Fortran only to find that it won't compile because your brain dropped that important little note in the cross over?

Or for that matter... having a compiler that inserts A SINGLE CHARACTER tab when you hit enter... -.- I have to space bar over the label and symbol part by hand... which looks the same as the tab it inserts... but then the compiler can't figure out what the heck I'm smoking because the code has started in the middle of a line because the rest is where the label goes as far as it is concerned.

The sad part about this is it could be a lot of fun to do Fortran in a better compiler. XD *imagines inserting ASCII art out past the seventy second column*

It was a normal day at work.  It was naptime, and I was doing my everyday "wash-all-the-toys-'cause-toddlers-shove-everything-in-their-mouths-and-God-knows-we-don't-need-any-more-projectile-vomiting-and-green-snot" routine.  I picked up a Weeble.  I scrubbed it.  I rinsed it.  I sanitized it.

This is when most disturbing thing happened.  Look if you dare.

(http://i56.tinypic.com/kaz61.jpg)

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK ABOUT THAT.  Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down!!  I called in four different teachers to see this madness, and none of them could believe their eyes.  It was incredible.  I think the world has been knocked off its axis.  Perhaps the apocolypse is coming?  Either way...a fallen Weeble.  I am aghast. :o

I swear, some supernatural force is at work here!  It was famous--we have almost 35 women working at my school, and two of them came in at different times to see!  One of them came in and whispered in terror: "Is it true?!"

*Sigh* Look, if it makes you feel better, I'm sure women of the world will guide you through it.  Unless the Weeble army forbids that.

Oh heavens.  What if the Weeble army forbids it?!
We'll still have drugs, right? Lots and lots of drugs?

Oh no. Anesthetics will be outlawed. The Weeble's want you to feel what it's like uninhibited. It will only make you stronger... If you survive the pain... Granted, I wouldn't know anything about child birth, being a man and all.

Deloria, it'll be like in real life--one half of the pairing helps with the fun part, the other half does all the work.

The Weebles will make sure of that.

Oh, and I'mabout to go back to work and wash that very same Weeble, this time I have a camera that takes video.  Please stand by to see Weeble-falling action!

I ask the same question about the interrobang. If there is a secret order for the Interrobang, I'm SO joining it. The interrobang is like the best thing to ever happen to the english language. Unfortunately, no one teaches it, and it's not easy to make on a computer. Basically, it's used in exclamatory questions, along the lines of, "She did what?!". But instead of using "?!" you would combine the two punctuation marks to make the interrobang. Why it's been erased from the english language I'll never know. I'm almost tempted to slip a reference to it TSL if I can convince the team do that... But it's probably not going to happen, as much as I'd like it to...
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread
Post by: kindofdoon on February 05, 2011, 03:20:12 PM
The interrobang is funny, but not especially useful. A sarcasm mark would be nice, but it would also take a great deal of subtlety out of language.

Ha! I'm only on my second quarter of being a computer science student and I'm trying to learn C++, it's difficult.  I've got Visual Studio open right now and I'm trying to learn to properly display a 2-dimensional array.  I've gotten exactly this far:

 private void btn1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
//1. Display the array
            int rows = A.GetLength(0);
            int columns = A.GetLength(1);
            for (int i = 0; i < A.GetLength; i++)
            {
                richTextBox1.AppendText(A[rows, columns] + " ");
                {
                    richTextBox1.AppendText("/n");
                }
            }
        }

Clearly something isn't working here, I just need to figure out what is it...it's a for loop, my nemesis. :devil:
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread
Post by: tessspoon on April 04, 2012, 02:00:41 PM
Heh, I just realized there's a code tag on this forum :D

I think your "/n" needs to be "\n".

I don't know what A is, but usually when displaying a 2D array two for loops are used. One to iterate over the rows, and one to iterate over the columns. If I assume that A works like the 2D arrays I'm used to, then:

Code: [Select]
//This for loop goes through all the rows of the 2D array
for(int i =0; i < rows; i++)
{
    //This for loop goes through all the items in a row
    for(int j = 0; j < columns; j++)
    {
           richTextBox1.AppendText(A[i][j] + " "); //Get the item in the current row and column and print it
    }
          richTextBox1.AppendText("\n"); //Done with the current row, so print out a newline before we start the next.
}
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread
Post by: Haids1987 on April 05, 2012, 08:54:54 AM
Dude, I didn't know there was a code tag either! ;)

Hmmm...I copy and pasted your code into Visual Studio and it accepted most of it, but it looks like I failed to declare columns and rows. I'm going to go back and check with some of my fellow students to see what else I'm doing wrong, but thank you Tess! You're education is paying off! :yes:

In other news, I went to the 3D IMAX experience of Titanic last night. !!! There was laughter.  There were tears. There was ridiculous cringing as the guy falls off the stern of the ship and smacks his legs on the propeller. :X I always forget how much I love that movie until I watch it again. :sweetheart:

Edit: fixed your :sweetheart: :)
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread
Post by: snabbott on April 05, 2012, 02:18:02 PM
I think you need to paste Tess's code after your declarations of rows and columns.
I haven't gotten to the "Visual" stuff yet, but here's a console application that creates and displays a 2-d array:
Code: [Select]
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int a2darray[10][10];
    for (int i=0; i<10; i++) {
        for (int j=0; j<10; j++) {
            a2darray[i][j] = i+j;
        }
    }
    for (int x=0; x<10; x++) {
        for (int y=0; y<10; y++) {
            cout<<a2darray[x][y]<<" ";
        }
        cout<<"\n";
    }
}

Output:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

I don't know enough to make it pretty yet. :P

Also, I'm not finding a good way of determining the dimensions of a multidimensional array. :S
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread
Post by: Haids1987 on April 06, 2012, 08:55:03 AM
My friend and I figured it out together:

Code: [Select]
     for (int i = 0; i < A.GetLength(0); i++)             
{
                for (int j = 0; j < A.GetLength(1); j++)               
{
                 richTextBox1.AppendText(A[i,j] + " ");               
}
                richTextBox1.AppendText("\n"); //Just skips a line.
            }
        }
Woohooo! Programming is so satisfying once it makes a certain amount of sense.  Total logic comes and goes. :P Thanks for your help though, crew! It actually did end up helping a lot because it gave me a jump-off point. :yes:

So one of my instructors has given us a new assignment: prompt the user for two coordinates on a chessboard and calculate all possible moves that a knight can make.  My first thought?  "Checkmate!  Only chess pieces allowed in Chessboard Land!" ;D

You know, with all this talk of some of the old Sierra folks returning to the gaming spotlight, kinda reminds me of a dream I had recently.

In the dream, Graham was sitting in a big secret room of Castle Daventry where there was a gigantic computer monitor- with pretty much EVERY Sierra game on it! Including King's Quest! and it came with a phone too, where he could contact various Sierra employees (Roberta Williams, Jane Jensen, the Two Guys enc), and the various heroes of their games (like Roger Wilco, Laura Bow, Gabriel Knight enc), and also other companies like the folks at Infamous Adventures and Pheonix Online Studios- a desk, a keyboard, a device that opened up portals to the other Sierra game universes, and a dramatic swivel chair.

Of course, he can no longer hang out with most of these people after what they call "The Hub" (aka the Sierra offices) was shut down and now is owned by Activision. Thusly, leaving most heroes of Sierra (that weren't picked up for remakes or fangames) wondering what to do with their lives now that their adventures are over and they're basically unemployed. So, to keep on adventurin', Graham bands everyone together he can still find, and they dtart hatching a plan to storm the offices of Activision and get back Sierra! Roger, Gabriel and the QFG Heroes were to stage a distraction, while Graham was leading the charge against the leader of Activision (whose name I can't remember. The one who said "I want to take the fun out of games.")...

And then I woke up.

Wow. Just...wow. That's instense! :o Perhaps you were thinking about the days of yore where in the Companion it says that Manannan has a computer screen in his study to contact our world? When you play KQ3 you see something like one sitting on one of the shelves. Fact. :yes: I haven't dreamed about King's Quest in a long time, though I have had dreams about it before. I'm actually surprised, since I've been on such a Sierra kick! As I stated in another thread, I recently played through both Laura Bow games, and right now I'm working through KQ7 (for like the 3,592,745th time).

Okay, when I was a little girl, I never finished The Dagger of Amon Ra, but I just beat it over the summer and I gotta say, I am MAD at myself. Not because I never finished it as a kid, but because I had SUCH A HARD TIME WITH IT. And when I beat it, Laura ended up getting shot to death in her bed because I she didn't solve the mystery corrcetly. I was like, "Double you tee eff?!" It was a long and arduous journey, and I was not satisfied with the ending at all! I Googled a walkthrough afterwards to see what I missed, and it turns out I missed a LOT. And here I was, thinking I was kicking murder mystery butt, but no, I sucked. >:( Grr.

Plus, like I said, the murderer chasing me around scared the mess outta me.  :dead:

See, I used to play that game when I was really little. :P And I never even made it into the museum. :P But one day last summer I replayed it with Jamie and we were infuriated by how utterly unfair the game was and how impossible it was not to miss things on the first playthrough. XD And the fact that it was so needlessly punishing with such random and senseless deaths and that people kept interrupting our investigations just made it much, much worse. :P We weren't even aware that it was possible to overhear conversations at the beginning of the night. XD Anyway, we made it through and survived, but we then decided that Sierra games were fundamentally unfair, especially Laura Bow. :P And her voice is infuriating. :P And she is the worst feminist ever. :P
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread
Post by: GrahamRocks! on October 26, 2012, 12:32:02 PM
If it wasn't for hercrabiness I wouldn't have known who Laura Bow was. Through her, I ot introduced to Lateblt as well.

Speaking of which... *goes to Youtube, to subscribe to him... and she gets lines of squares and codes for her troubles?*

Uhhh...

That is just as weird as I'm writing stuff for Game Design class in Word, and I spell Cthulhu which is squiggled red underneath showing it's mispelled. I right click on it, and it says "No Spelling Suggestions"

OH MY GOD, I totally agree with you, Deloria! Some of the stuff I found out I missed I was totally, completely pissed about. I was like, "Really? Oh, I'm sorry, it should have been totally obvious that I was to listen behind the tapestry!" **Grumbles explicits under my breath**

Pancakes. I'm with you, Jafar. They're nice, but not my favorite. Truth be told, I could live without them if I was forced. They're homey and American and smell good, but they kind of make me feel sick after I eat them.

And what an awesome talent to have! I can't do that...but only because I can't stand coffee :P Though, I do make hot chocolate disappear pretty quickly :P

I wish I could sew, every single time I've got to fix something (button shirt or whatnot) I truly suffer lol, I look at a stapler or a super glue bottle but then I go like... NO NO... no lol, do the right thing, Say... just do your best :P

That boy has too many titles... Cray, Q, Questie, Sir Cray, The Mutton, Graham even... ::) Once upon a time, I said we should call him Cray-Q-estie b/c it incorporated all or most of them... but now he's gone and gotten more!! *grumbles*

for my Pokemon Trainer outfit... I
Quote
wanted
to do something a little more elaborate, like copy one of the protagonist's outfits closely. But, I decided against that because some of them have different hair styles than I did and I'm not good with hair. Plus, I always wear my yoga pants to save time in between classes and we can't wear shorts in there unfortunately for some reason.

So, all I ended up doing was tying my hair into a ponytail, sticking it throught the back of a baseball cap, and hefting my backpack with my yoga folder and book and heavy Alienware laptop (which is why it's so big) over my shoulders and stuck my Pokewalker on my hip (which I tried to get to work but failed for 20 something minutes, what am I doing wrong?!).

I was a Pokemn Trainer, specifically a Protagonist Backpacker!

I don't has plants.

Once, when I was little, I had a fake plant. Felt leaves. They curled up like it was dying.

I can't even keep plastic plants alive.

I had a really pretty orchid for the better part of the year, but my mother insisted I get rid of it because keeping them over winter is more hassle than they're worth. :(

Orchids are very difficult to keep at any time :P

Did you even take a photo of it, ever? My mom once bought one but it sure died during winter time too, it was such a shame because it was sooo expensive
Title: Re: The Official General Chat Thread

It never worked because it was kept in a really long, thick, partially frosted crystal vase and photographing through glass is hard. :(
