“Well, shit fellas. I don’t know. I gotta say though that the first season of Ren and Stimpy and All of Loonie Tunes should be coveted and looked at as inspiration for anyone trying to make a jedi knight outta himself, chillin with a side …boob shot of what Asuka looked like in the college Eva, but this time…a jedi..Mongol, and your taking over shit. But you can’t handle the time…another dimension? Too easy? Invincible is kinda silly but I still m stoned. Kirkman does have a good thing or two and I think it’s about time he made something of the quality of the walking dead for kids as much as he talks about it. Damn.”— From the funniest damn Facebook post I’ve read in a long time.
Oh lawdy. 25 pages? Reminds me of the dungeon-crawling game I developed in Java. The fun part about TI-BASIC is that you program it on a device that can only display so many lines of code. It’s like programming in Apple-BASIC on an Apple IIe from 1992. You put so many lines in and you can’t go back to view previous lines of code that you put together, and it’s all stored in RAM, so nothing is permanent unless you write it to a floppy disk. It’s all stored in RAM on a TI-8X too, but that means that if you screw up your lists or something for Statistics and you reset your RAM to fix it, you lose all of your work. ;_;
I’m curious to see what that program of yours looked like, though. xD Apples to Apples on a freaking calculator. Win to the nth degree. =D
Some time ago, I decided to start coding a physics calculator in C++. It wouldn’t exactly be anything fancy, and more along the lines of typing in the desired variable, be it force (F), magnetic field strength (B), centripetal acceleration, (Ac), what have you, selecting an equation from a menu,…
I had a similar problem.
I wrote, in TIBasic, a program to play a legit game of Apples to Apples. I’m not even kidding. There were 100 nouns and 20 adjectives, 3 other players generated by CPU, and a legit system for grading responses, to an extent. It used a bit of luck manipulation and cheated occasionally, but the user probably would never notice. And it was great.
The problem was, I wrote programs out by hand, so I could see what the hell I was doing. And this became a problem because, in writing this program, I wrote, front and back, about 25 pages of code.
And did I mention? I wrote in two columns.
So, the program probably runs, but there’s no way in hell I’ll ever know: I’m not ever gonna sit down and type 100 columns of code into my calculator. No matter how badass the result would have been.
Some time ago, I decided to start coding a physics calculator in C++. It wouldn’t exactly be anything fancy, and more along the lines of typing in the desired variable, be it force (F), magnetic field strength (B), centripetal acceleration, (Ac), what have you, selecting an equation from a menu, and then solving (nothing complex like deriving equations, or at least not yet). Simple, right? While I never formally learned C++, I decided to go upon some of the basic principles I was taught while taking a formal course in Java a year ago: one class, one main function, and a disproportionate amount of variables. A few lines of code later, I could calculate force using F=ma without a problem. Then I decided to make it practical for other people to use, since I planned on distributing it to a slight degree…
90+ lines of code and maybe half an hour later, and it’s not even working 100%. More like 80%, and no matter which way you look at it, 80% working is still a broken program.
Decided to use multiple classes and multiple functions instead. I’ve shortened the length of certain aspects of the program practically exponentially.
And you wanna know the best part? NO GUI. ALL TERMINAL. WORDS. NO PICTURES. NO BUTTONS. YAY.
I need to figure out how to put a GUI together and integrate it with C++… Not to mention I need to get it working for Windows (programming in a Linux environment with specifications for Linux terminals). Maybe Mac if I can get a Hackintosh running, but it’s unlikely.
While I have grown increasingly tired of your badgering attempts to get me to attend your university in the fall, I will graciously accept your temptations of free t-shirts. Not only do I have extra pieces of hideous pastel-colored clothing to wear, but I have something to sleep in, get wood shavings, oil, and dirt all over, and to safely jerk off in without having the idea of “Oh fuck, I’m wearing a good shirt while wanking but I don’t feel like stopping urrgh” cross my mind. For this, I thank you, and no, sorry, but you won’t be receiving $400 in the mail anytime soon. But again, thanks for the shirts.
Your ever-so-loving high school senior which you love to badger,
Truthfully, I wasn’t entirely sure about joining the whole Tumblr scene, but what the heck. I figured I’d give it a try.
So, if it’s one thing I’ll say about myself right now: this having been my first post on Tumblr, I’m a total and absolute noob at this whole thing. I’ve got a good feeling that I’ll be able to figure it out pretty soon and quickly, but until those vital discoveries start being made, I’ll probably do a lot of herping and derping here and there. While I’m at it, I may as well make a shameless advert for my own website, Pokemania Rebirth. Like Pokemon? Like a good story?

Like most people, I get a lot of random thoughts in my head and I go off on my own autonomic tangents. Sometimes I feel like writing them down, but OH GAWD, WE KNOW THAT’S NEVER ENOUGH. NEVAAR. With the advent of social media on the Internet, we have to share these things with people, no? Otherwise, how else will people know about the fantastic sandwich that I had for dinner, or how I compiled various LibSDL packages for use by the free FPS Sauerbraten and various other programs to be used within my Linux environment? Yes, yes indeed, these things MUST be answered. And you MUST find a way to play Sauerbraten with me, as it runs within Windows, Mac OS, and Linux natively, it’s free, AND it’s a pretty FPS for what it’s worth. And fast. And fun. And comes with Internet multiplayer. And a dedicated server utility. And starting a sentence with “and” is an example of bad grammar, as I remember from first grade. And it’s free. Did I mention that it’s free?
THERE IS NO MONEY TO BE SUCKED OUT OF YOUR POCKETS BY THE CASH MONSTER. SUCK YOUR BANDWIDTH UP AND PLAY WITH ME ALREADY, GAWSH.
