    Yeah that's fantastic, I had a good laugh when I saw it.

    So I'm about to just plain stop doing actionscript, I just don't know if my brain can grasp that kind of stuff. Such a love/hate relationship. I've gotten so far though... I MUST TRUDGE ON! *begins epic battle within the mind*

    Are you learning actionscript 2 or 3? 3 is a lot stricter (more like Java ... in fact almost exactly like java), needs more skill to use, but runs far more efficiently.

    Why are you getting stuck? Also check out the forums at kirupa.com as they have a very helpful AS community.

    I'm actually learning a bit of both. I think that's where my confusion is coming in. I truthfully like 3.0 a lot better but there aren't a lot of new tutorials on 3.0

    As far as recommending kirupa thanks a bunch! I had done a few tutorials from the site and they helped out a lot. But never really thought about asking on the forums there. I've been mainly using oman3d.com the main mod there is a huge help.

    The main stuff I'm having a problem with is just grasping it as I haven't done any sort of programming since highschool (over 6 and a half years ago) and at that time all I did was a intro to C++ class. The lynda.com tutorials are helping a ton though.

    Today in Sociology class, the prof lectured on institutionalized racism. Then, the the TA got up to finish the remaining 20 minutes and I tuned out. I got pulled back into listening when a girl sitting in the front starting ranting about how the Lord of the Rings trilogy is Eurocentric and racist. Dude, WUT?

    The syntax and code side of things are dead easy in actionscript, the hard part is in getting your head around Object Oriented programming. I'm only just starting to get comfortable with it. There's a HUGE tutorial on it on kirupa i think ... like 40 pages long or something like that.

    Well, duh. That's a completely valid way to read it, especially considering when it was written.

    I read the series when I was young (12) and not entirely exposed to the full spectrum of racism. I don't know, I really liked it, and I haven't read it since, so I guess I never really thought about it that way.

    Oh man elves, master race. Fucking shit- it's really hitting now. This blows.D:

    That doesn't mean it's not still a great series of books, it's just that you don't agree with the particular allegories. It's also an incredibly (almost insultingly) simplified version of racism (orcs=blacks? He might as well have had them go 'ooga booga' and wear grass skirts). There's been papers written on the subject, on what Tolkien meant by it; it's kind of dependant on how much you care about it, really. Plus, he was the father of modern fantasy, so he's got that going for (or against?) him.

    I'll have to wait to see this objectively. For now, what I thought was a diamond in my bag of nostalgia is looking a lot like coal.

    Pft. It's early February and it feels like spring outside! The sky's blue, the sun is shining, it's not even cold. I'm not sure I miss the cold winters with freezing temperatures or not, but this just feels weird.

    It was fucking 75 degrees Tuesday. That's in February, in the Northeast of America (well, Mid-Atlantic). We don't get a lot of cold weather here anyway, but that's crazy. It also makes me sick, literally - when outdoor temperatures shift dramatically over the course of a day, it makes me feel like I've got the flu and knocks me on my ass for days.

    GA is pretty much hanging out around 60-70 during the day, 30-40 during the night. I guess we get the good end of the global warming deal.

    That is, until the hurricanes come. Hurricanes fashioned from islands collected on the way.

    I'm glad I don't live anywhere where we get hurricanes. The most I can worry about is floods, and only if the dikes suddenly decide to give out. Atleast, as far as I know (I don't keep up with the latest disaster scenarios).

    You know, fixing up an old drawing can be fun. But at this point everytime I change something I see other things that need changing. Ugh.

    We haven't really had any hurricanes for nearly 3 years. Not since Katrina really, aside from a few small ones that never made landfall. On the main coast at least, I know a few Caribbean islands got some.

    Its been uncommonly mild. Next thing I bet we have a media frenzy over proposed "Super" Hurricanes, at least once the politics in the campaign are over next fall.

    I'm in Ontario, and we had a huge blizzard that lasted about 2 days, a couple days ago. It was insane. I was driving home from Oakville and I could barely see infront of me. Everyone on the road was going about 20 in the 80. It was fun though. I made the mistake of challenging mother nature and taking the sideroads. I just got my winter tires put on so I wanted to test them. I made it home, but I don't think I'll go on the sideroads again when it's like that. I didn't even know what side of the road I was on.

    So apparently, last night, just north of Savannah (and probably within 10 miles of me) a sugar factory exploded. One of my friends actually saw the sky light up orange. It's apparently all over the news.

    That's pretty awful. :S

    I remember when the fireworks factory exploded in the city some 40 kilometres away from where my parents lived. You could see the sky turn grey even from where we were (and initially thought it was actually bad weather, until we turned on the news).

    You'd be thinking wrong though, what with the factory being situated right in a residential zone.

    Well, depot more than factory. Nevertheless, it blew up.
