    Hey, so maybe somebody here who knows about art or design or image recognition or something can inform me about this.

    I was browsing an Imgur gallery of Where's Momo pictures, which is a series of photographs that are pretty neat on their own, but also contain a dog (the aforementioned Momo) hidden somewhere in the pictures. And I was noticing that it was easier to find Momo in some of the pictures than in others, but not necessarily because of camouflage, where Momo is hard to find because much of the photograph has color groupings similar to Momo's. Rather, some were easier because they had fewer "places" in the photo for Momo to be hidden, and others had many "places".

    Examples:

    Very few places: http://i.imgur.com/ObTXuMZ.jpg

    Few places: http://i.imgur.com/UhBk9TH.jpg

    Some places: http://i.imgur.com/eZi29Ev.jpg

    Medium places: http://i.imgur.com/re0cYqV.jpg

    Many places: http://i.imgur.com/JBvgxiB.jpg

    A shitton of places: http://i.imgur.com/uPnNVHg.jpg

    Is this a recognized concept in art/photography/graphic design or even image analysis? I'm not sure who to @ about this.

    @syndalis Vizio 55" 1080 screen on sale ordered for in store pickup

    I will be Forza-ing in glory

    Reviews seem fine and it has RCA audio outs which is helpful

    I don't care about the built in apps really since it will really be my xbone display

    It does have a USB port too which might be handy

    I could get a chrome cast thingy or whatever

    I will report back when it is Forza time

    -desc - badass. Vizio are surprisingly good television sets for the money. And chromecast isn't even all that useful when you have an XBO - you can push YouTube from any mobile app and there are a ton of media apps on the console already.

    Forza is just a great game. It's a love letter to cars from people who love cars, and it shows in every detail of the experience. It's infectious in its enthusiasm.

    Yeah, most of the media apps you want are gonna be baked into the vizio anyway probably -- netflix, amazon, hulu, plex, pandora, spotify. I got one fairly recently and it's been great, my only issue is there are no physical buttons on it which is annoying when I inevitably lose my remote

    Stop! Just... stop....

    Hillary Clinton threw out an "All lives matter" during a speech about Charleston to a black congregation.

    She apparently did not know the recent history of the term.

    how recent are we talking? Because jesus fuck it must be exhausting to be the people in charge on staying on top of everything you're allowed write into a president's speech

    About as old as the whole #BlackLivesMatter thing

    it was a reactionary hashtag started by racists and adopted by other racists and by ignorant people who don't think of themselves as racists but are basically saying something really ignorant without really thinking it through

    Keeping up with the things that really matter, like twitter hashtags...

    Honestly, I'd be more concerned if a candidate was apprised of twitter hashtag minutiae, because they should be doing their actual jobs, which is hard and time consuming to do properly.

    you know it's really easy for you to be snide about this

    and this is a popular tactic to dismiss protest movements for whom things like social media are very real and useful tools

    but it's more than a "twitter hashtag", it's a protest slogan, and protest slogans are as old as protests themselves

    knowing protest slogans of important social justice movements that are sweeping a nation in the middle of racial strife is kind of important for a presidential candidate

    and knowing not to use the racist counter-protest version of that slogan is also important, politically

    c'mon, man

    don't yell at clouds

    I will be snide about people ridiculously reading into hyper specific wording that is a typical colloquial phrase, deliberately and maliciously misinterpreted 180 degrees from the context in which it was meant, because that is shitty when anyone does it to anyone, but especially stupid, immoral, and self-defeating when done to one's own natural allies.

    Emphasizing style over substance is how you get shitty policy and shitty rhetoric.

    A lot of people, myself one of them, don't consider Hillary their natural ally and are kind of suspicious of her and watch her pretty carefully and she's walking a pretty fine line.

    She doesn't get a pass, she doesn't get credit, she doesn't get leeway. She has a really horrible history in politics in some people's opinions and where she stands on a lot of things for some people ranges from nebulous to objectionable. She has changed where she stands on some things, but on others she's either not changed or not really clarified.

    So when she uses a phrase that has it's origins with racists, even if she does it by accident (which, to be honest, I think she did honestly do by accident), she doesn't get leeway. She gets narrowed eyes and calls for accountability.

    There are people who do not trust her and she has not earned their trust.

    so why don't you stop being so angry, reactionary and condescending for five mins

    In my personal experience the more common dipshit refrain was either PoliceLivesMatter or PoliceLivesMatterToo or something to that effect. I still think AllLivesMatter or OurLivesMatter would have been a better slogan for the pro equality crowd from the get go. Less explicit but harder to frame as exclusionary by the derp set.

    FIRST SILLY QUESTION

    I'm making a class that takes an integer N in its constructor and then creates an N by N grid for the instance. What's the proper way to do that? If I declare variables in the constructor, they're out of scope once the constructor is done running, but I won't know how big to make them before running the constructor. I know there is an easy way to do this, but it has been a while and I am very unsure of myself.

  • ChanusChanus I've seen things... Registered User regular

    Declare the variables prior to the constructor and then instantiate them in the constructor.

    I was too vague. I have handle on my anger now, but before I did when I got really angry I sometimes hit my Xbox. I'm fairly certain I slightly damaged its memory or somesuch, as every once in a while something just won't run and I'll have to uninstall and reinstall and in some cases just format the hard drive.
    Currently I'm just mildly annoyed by this inconvenience.

    No, arrays in java are pretty limited. They have an ArrayList class, however, that acts the way you would expect an array to in a modern language.

    in your class you declare a private member variable for the N by N grid (2d array?)

    that variable is a reference to data of that type not the data itself. It starts out referencing null.

    in the constructor you use the new operator to actually allocate the data and store a refererence to it in your member variable.

    ie:

    class Foo
    {

    public Foo(int size)
    {
    dataGrid = new int[size][size];
    }

    private int dataGrid[][];
