  1. In Topic: Facebook games -- Languages?

    Posted 28 Aug 2015

    My understanding is that facebook games all run in a browser. That means you need to have a language that can run in a browser as well; which is nice because it limits things a lot. Basically your choices are flash, silverlight (which I believe has been discontinued), javascript (likely the best option), and unity 3D's web player.

    All the options except javascript require a plugin to work; so I would definitely suggest using it. I also expect that facebook has easy-to-use APIs for javascript available already so you don't have to futz with those things (makes life easier).

    Hm... just leaving this here.
  3. In Topic: Mice, the computer kind

    Wound up ordering a Razer Taipan over the weekend. It sounds like it has enough programmable buttons for the hotkey overhaul I want to accomplish, and with any luck Synapse is capable of having per-application profiles (like my K70 does) so I don't have to manually change my profile around. It should arrive sometime in the next week.
  4. In Topic: What are you working on today?

    Everybody loves having some hard salami in their lives.

    If you don't have a history of gout, you are probably fine. I found out towards the end of High School that my daily intake of salt was something like 8x more than recommended -- I haven't had gout yet.

    Working on a bug that I was assigned last night. Thinking about what type of windowing system I need to write to get our TUI refactored out the wazoo to be more responsive, and have a better overall UI.

    So far I have written a drop-down menu for it and like that quite a bit. The problem is that things don't get properly erased when opening/closing the drop-down, and I don't like that (looks messy). I started on a hierarchical windowing system last night and got to the point where it would throw an error when I attempted to find the "Pane" (what I decided to call a named section of the screen that you can change). If I can figure that out I believe I will have a working windowing system. THen I will just need to implement a text input, and a password input and I will have the inputs necessary complete. After that I need a popup window, with options, "buttons" and to implement the rest of the TUI.

    This is currently all curses and python.

    No problem. I love JavaScript so it isn't anything terribly difficult. The hardest part is to come up with challenges that will get people interested and not scare everyone away until we at least are a bit more known :)

    I think there are a few people who like IE, but we are the minority. I use it because I have grown up with it, it acts the most as I would expect it to (out of the major browsers) and I have grown accustom to its little quirks. Everyone talks about building things for FF then hacking for IE, but I find that Opera, IE, Chrome, and Sarafi normally work very close to the same, and FF is the outlier.

    Serious Question(s): Are you the only user who prefers IE over all of the other browsers? I haven't seen anyone else with that marked...
    Also, why do you prefer it?
