This is the second time Ubuntu dropped its ass.

The power went out, and I rebooted to find X thinking it was a fairy again.

In other news, I just finished my economics rough draft, and my next English papers are due at the end of the month. Biology exam next Wednesday. I have some time to work.

That's all, really.

In other, other news, I was thinking, man, it sucks having all this economics homework.
Then I thought to myself, Well, it could be worse. I could end up working on Game Maker and being down 600,000 USD. BAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. </verbal abuse>

Lasse, just because you are going insane from the long wait does not mean that "lol" doesn't cause everyone headache.

*yawns*

Wow. Go run a community the size of YoyoGames, become acquainted with a bunch of code you've never seen before and port it to Mac, and do everything else YoyoGames has done, before you start laughing at them just because they're making proprietary software (not like yours is really open-source anyway) that they're actually designing themselves, you freetard.

Cute, a mini Rusky in all senses. ^_^

That quote was actually a joke, for the most part. Though I've heard nothing good about Sandy's previous jobs and their respective turnouts...

Either way, this probably wouldn't happen if they weren't hiring (seemingly) random people to do the dirty work of converting to Mac.

Also, what all are they doing to GM that justifies that kind of money? They're using primarily free software, last I checked.

Furthermore, a decent dedicated server will cost anywhere from 150-300 USD. Giving them the benefit of the doubt at 600 a month for... 36 months? $22,000. Where's the other 96% going?

Oh well, they have employees to pay. No problem if they're not getting any return on that investment. They can just up the price of GM to $50 or so and cut it, no problem.


Anyway, for those who are here for ENIGMA rather than political and economic views, this is progress:
Code: [Select]
mainnamespace:   namespace
{
  testfunctiontemplate:  Function with 1 parameters, returning int  Template [3]<a,b=int,c> Dereference path: (params = 1)</group>
};

Generated from
Code: [Select]
namespace mainnamespace
{
  template <typename a,typename b = int,typename c> int testfunctiontemplate(int defile);
}

Nothing overly complicated. Would have gone loads faster with a little more free time on hand.

To explain output:
Code: [Select]
testfunctiontemplate:  Function with 1 parameters, returning int  Template [3]<a,b=int,c> Dereference path: (params = 1)</group>
name, obviously.       English description; you can read this.    Random template args.   This part gives necessary steps to get to type.

By "necessary steps to get to type", this is what I mean:
int *a[32]; has two referencers; the star, and the [32]. They must be undone in opposite order. Function arguments count as a referencer, since the return value is one step closer to the type, even though a function can technically return any type whatsoever. This works because you can't specify multiple return types in one declaration, no matter how many sets of function parameters a variable can have passed to it. GML fans don't have to worry about this.

If you've reverse-engineered the Game Maker runner (i.e. DONE SOME DAMN RESEARCH) you'd have seen that the code is in fact insanely simple, and there are many restrictions that should not be there like fixed-size arrays (which makes the code yet easier to manage). The .LIB format is a testament to the collective lack of programming skill.

For lulz, compare .LIB to .LGL.

Then you probably stopped reading there. Besides, you're allowed to be; you made LGM.

This is the result of me pasting the previous post into a conversation with Ism.
Where it says she's typing, it's because pidgin changes the selected bounds when a new notification is posted and the current bound is at the end.

Soon after it turned into a debate on whose turrets case was more serious; the Turrets Guy or Doc from Boondock Saints.

Nice to see that you use PNG in there - importing a monochrome bitmap in Mark's lib editor gets it converted to 24-bit again.

At least Game Maker isn't totally stupid.

At school, the programming 1 class teaches Scheme (eww Lisp), and we use DrScheme as an interpreter.  When you hit run, it adds 2 MiB of data to the RAM and it does not go away.
