Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm but a cipher. A shadow.

    A faint memory.

    Oh hey man. What's new?

    A lot of pointless Saints 2. It's Thursday so I am going out drinking soon.

    I suspect I will be back later but I spend most of my drunk time chatting with friends or playing games, and not [chat]ting as it were. I might drop in. It's always a good time to piss errbody off and what not. It's the 250th birthday of Guinness.

    Hm I had a Guinness last night when I was in Kent. Surprisingly tasty beer that i've always avoided for some reason.

    Enjoy yourself out there in the cold cruel world. Go to the hot dog guy.

    I'm the coldest, cruelest thing out there, friend.

    Well yeah. This is why you'll enjoy yourself especially if you buy a hot dog or sausage or gyro from the fellow that isn't Gyro Bob. It will warm your frozen heart.

    Never had Borolo. I could probably try it this weekend if I find something cheap, because we're grilling.

    Something you could try instead of Barolo is Amarone della Valpolicella. It's nothing to do with the sweet, weak Valpolicella. They use semi-dried grapes and a long (double?) ferment.

    Basically dried grapes have lots of sugar, but they ferment it longer than usual so you get a very strong wine (15-17%) with tons of flavour.

    It's fucking lovely.

    Or a varietal Tempranillo from Spain or South America.

    Or Chateneauf-du-Pape.

    Fuck I love wine.

    I figure I could take a bear.

    I love Guinness. It was the first beer I could drink regularly. I wish I could drink the liquor at the moment. So many good beers I cannot enjoy at the moment.

    You can get the Professional version if you click the box when it asks if you need to connect to a school domain. Offer is good until like January.

    I was the one who pointed this out to you guys remember

    Would this work as like

    Upgrading from beta to full?

    Or only from XP/Vista to 7?

    I should play more with WPF

    It is so much better than any other UI framework I've used. JavaFX is similar in general "neat" factor but doesn't come with nearly as much stuff (controls, libraries etc...) as .NET 3.5.

    Course the downside is Windows only.

    yeah, I think that's what holds me back

    because if I'm doing something for myself I want it to work on everything I like to use, which means I either turn to Qt or just say fuck it and do it on the web

    Silverlight 3 essentially WPF lite. Doesn't have the breadth but is a browser plugin and works on the Mac.
    Silverlight to me is essentially a repeat of the same mistake java applets and flash made: lock all the cool shit in a box on the page.

    I like the broader interactivity of HTML 5, where the cool stuff is integrated into the DOM proper

    If I had the slightest glimmer of hope (and I don't, not one bit) that HTML 5 or stuff like SVG was either
    1) Going to be widely adopted in the next 3-5 years
    2) Going to be implemented in even a remotely standardized fashion between different browsers and platforms
    3) Would not require me to write code in an evil, untyped, feature poor, unperformant piece of shit language (aka: Javascript)

    I would be more interested.

    But given how much bullshit is required to even make a static webpage look the same in Firefox, Safari, Opera etc... (and that's even ignoring IE) I am sick to death of web "standards". They are not standard and never will be.

    Locking stuff up in a box does indeed kind of suck. But at least inside the box everything works the same in all supported browsers / platforms.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    Dammit I'm falling asleep.

    I mean, yes, it makes sense, it's logical, one could even say reasonable. I have been up since 6 pm yesterday but still.

    I'm trying to stay awake.

    I'm trying to force my sleep schedule back to a diurnal mode.

    I'm sure my grandparents will be upset if I come to Sacramento this weekend and sleep all day. Bed time isn't until at least 8, preferably 10, dammit.

    FEAR 2 is apparently 50% off (25 Ameribucks) this weekend on Steam.

    Hmmm man... I might have to grab that then too. :P

    Just sign up for the newsletters from Steam, GamersGate, Direct2Drive, Impulse and Goold Old Games. All of them now have a weekend sale every weekend. With a little patience you can never pay full price for a game again.

    Where can you get the professional version?

    When you sign up they'll give you a link to add the Home Premium version to your cart. Below that is a little banner that asks if you need to connect to a school domain, in which case you'll need Professional. Clicking that takes you to the Professional page and it costs the same as Home Premium.
