Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: What Are You Working On Today?

    Posted 2 Aug 2014

    Worked on getting our first day of posts up on our new website for the indie game project I'm working on.

    Come check it out.

    I also posted it in the Game Dev section here as the blog will be serving as a game dev blog in which I will be covering the code in our project.

  2. In Topic: The best parental control

    I have two daughters - one preteen and one teenager. I solved the problem like so:

    (1) they have no access to a home PC without my direct supervision,

    (2) no internet access via gaming systems,

    (3) Kindles are set up to require my password for wifi access (my password is 20 characters, selected randomly, and changes monthly),

    (4) their smartphones are through Verizon which has (for an extra $5 monthly) a parental control setup that the parent line accesses from an app or directly from their VZW account online... this allows me to set content ratings for web access, as well as set monthly data limits on their lines (I don't allow them wifi access on their phones). It also gives me the option to brick their phones with the click of a button. Being grounded no longer means "we can't have our phones until mom goes to work tomorrow and we tear the house apart to find them", it now means "we get to keep our phones, but they won't do shit other than dial 911 until mom unbricks them", and

    (5) if they piss me off, I'll gather up all the cables for all the electronics and take them with me to work in the morning so they can't so much as charge their phones or watch a DVD. Because I'm an ass like that. When momma says no, momma means no.

    Ultimately, however, depricated is right. There is no substitute for parental involvement.

    Honestly this is the best answer I read, and I assumed before hand that B9 would have been the one to give the best answer.

    If I had kids this is pretty much what I'd do. If they got smart phones at all that is...

    I understand the convenience of cell phones in this day and age. It is great to have the ability to easily get ahold of your child (or vice versa). I remember having to use payphones/friends phones/etc to contact home if I stayed after for something at school and what not.

    But honestly... all the features a phone has. No. I'm not for that. A child does not yet have the sense of responsibility to be carrying around a camera/game machine/internet access device/driving distraction/etc. A phone that does more than allow me to contact my kid, or them contact me, that will wait for when they can afford to do it themselves with their own money.
  3. In Topic: Are software engineers considered to be real engineers?

    Posted 19 Jul 2014

    When I was a little boy, I wanted to be an engineer.

    And if I wanna call myself an engineer, then I'm an engineer!

    Tooooot, Toooooooot!

    What... are you going to steal the dream of a little boy?

  4. In Topic: Almost as good as paper

    Posted 10 Jul 2014

    Agreed with jon.kiparsky

    I have stacks of legal pads, note cards, note books, etc. I have a white board (though I need a new one) and a cork board. It just works for me.

    If my white board, or cork board, has something I want to save. I might take a photo of it.

    The only down side to this is searching is a little more difficult. But in the same respect, I kind of enjoy flipping through all my pads and notebooks. See the ideas I've spit balled over the years.
  5. In Topic: Let's throw out the moral, ethical, and legal issues for a moment

    Posted 8 Jul 2014

    There is a difference between ignoring the rules and going against the rules. The OP's question doesn't suggest you should come up with immoral experiments, it just says that you should free your mind. Exactly like a developer would say to a designer "don't pollute yourself with implementation constraints now, we'll see that later". It doesn't mean "please make it next to impossible to implement on purpose, I like it when it hurts".

    Yeah... no.

    If that's what the OP intended, well the OP poisoned the well by injecting all the hub-bub about ethics and morality. Why mention that if that's not what OP was shooting for?

    Anyway, as I told Clint - it's more fun to play along with the madness of the swamp than to yell at him. It's a beautiful put-on, let him run with it.

    SS was very nice to have around during the GOTO thread. I think when he saw Swamp agreeing with him, that's when the OP realized that he had crossed a line

    If you end up coming to Boston, there's a vegan restaurant called True Bistro in Somerville that's pretty damned good. The cook's a friend of mine from college, but he's also pretty well known in vegan/raw cookery, so it's not just me saying that.
