Oh. While you were out of the country they announced a price for Rock Band over here.
I suggest Play or Amazon for your virtual drum needs...

I got that shortly after I posted. I don't get why they would pay for that. Oh well.

also.

Dubai is fucking mental, its just... surreal.

A short list of a few things about it:

5000 buildings currently under construction, with 2/3rd's of the words tallest cranes being used in the city.

the 7 star hotel, only one in the world, its top hotel, its like £30 (60$) for say, a tea or coffee just. and the rooms start at £2000/night rising to £25,000/night.

there is an under-water hotel, completely submerged.

the tallest tower in the world by quite a bit, still under construction, and built so as that if anyone rivals it, they can just keep making it taller for quite a while to go.

the indoor skiing, biggest in world (although still tiny really ;P) goes through 3500 barrels of oil a day for making the snow, nevermind the air conditioning to keep it at negative temperatures throughout the day even if its approaching 50 celsius outside.

Petrol is CHEAPER than water. o.O

Numbering slots on collabs

I dont mind em.. I think that in some collabs you've done a little headway before you actually make the topic so in that scenario it makes sense.. In my past time trials id scout out people way before i'd actually make the topic.

I think my one annoyance with collab starters is that they dont really think about the whole scope of the project.. like they have an initial idea and rather than planning out how to get the most interesting angle on it they just spaz out and post the usual heres some slots ... make shit.

Then again i cant blame em cause the ng audience seem to be fine with that presentation of random clips thrown together. o well

There are also those that have a really good idea for a collab, but when they go to make the thread about it the idea either doesn't come out right and sounds like shit. Or most of the others don't really like the idea so the thread pretty much dies. I know I have had some ideas for collabs, but when I went to make the thread the idea sounded really stupid.

I just hate it when people make really stupid collabs and are still aloud to go through with the idea. Some of the collab ideas are just a copy of another one that is still in the process of being made. Others are just make a random video and someone else can put it together. People are just too lazy to either do their own stuff, or just can't draw worth shit so they need to mooch off of others to get a decent score. Assuming that they actually get to make one and it gets submitted.

There are also the collabs that help people out, like the animation challenge (thanks to Rudy). I think that is an awesome idea. People get to post their work and improve everytime they work one it. I think there should be more like that to helpl people feel more confident about their work and abilites. Even the tutorial collabs, but they mostly jsut put a shit load of onfo that will help people in a way, but won't make them more confident in what they do, because most people will just copy and paste the code to finish up their projects.

I guess thats all I have to say about collabs for now.

Actually I found it fairly entertaining. Also I'd like to see you show the initiative to make a game like that.

I don't think Bezman's intention was to make a Flash game that would forever change the face of Flash development. I think the idea was that he was making a game to prove a point.

He certainly proved one. I'd never have thought it possible to make something like that.

RE: Delta

Sorry about your friend (your brothers friend whatever). I remember when one of my cousins was killed in a car accident last year its such a sobering punch to the gut. I know death is inevitable and all that but somehow no matter how many times you are dealt with someone elses death you can never get used to the idea. bleh.

Thats what I was thinking. I never thought of rollover buttons.

Sorry to hear that Delta :(

I do not wish to get into the subject of death at the moment.

Nor I. A guy I knew all the way through high-school got killed in a car accident three or so years ago. It's not something I can really vocalise feelings about, but I'm really sorry in any case.

Sorry to hear that Delta. I had a friend who got hit by a car last year and became paralyzed, and that was shocking enough. I can't imagine completely losing a friend.

The environment kind of annoys me :P Don't get me wrong - I'm all for stopping global warming and shizzle - I just wish it could be done without all of the massive bullshit to go with it.

I didn't even know it was earth day today to be frank. I guess it's not that big over here. I'd say I'm a little conscious as well. Just little stuff like separating the garbage, turning of the heater when the windows are open, closing doors, not spilling too much water etc. etc. The little things add up right :)?
