College closed due to snow. Fuck yeah :)
Just spent an hour or so digging out the rabbit run and digging a path for the dogs (the snow is deeper than one of them and the other one is too much of a wuss to go out)... nothing like manual labor in the morning >:3

Same here. I really wasn't expecting it, since my school only lets people out for snow very rarely I was really quite shocked when I heard my school's name being announced on there.

My schools lucky enough so that the only time it will close is in -34 degree weather. Actually, never mind, we got a two hour delay for that once. It was -32 at the bus stop...

I like tennis, I watch Wimbledon.. a bit. The matches last too long though =p Like ALL other sports (excluding martial arts ;)) it's more fun to play than it is to watch.

I have a week off anyway, and even if I didn't uni would still be open.. some lecturers would just not turn up if they live too far away. My little brothers school is open (though my mum let him have the day off) but they just closed (at 1pm) because of the snow. The snow is about 10cm thick, it's kinda awesome. I just wanna have a snow ball fight :3

Crab Football

You, my friend, have obviously never played Darts.

I was playing darts yesterday with Dave (Shalalaska-1) actually! I'm not so good.

Better than Dave though =P

I just measured.. the snow outside my room, on the roof bit, is just under 25cm thick :P

Note: Jumping face first into snow IS fun

Learning actionscript in stages

Seeing as I've forgotten a lot and I knew quite little anyway in as3, I thought I'd aim for 'milestones' in terms of what I could be able to code, for example:

1. Simple mathematical for loop, perhaps a triangle number maker or Pythagoras triplet maker
2. Creating a movieclip with certain aesthetical aspects solely with code.
3. A bouncing ball with gravity.etc
4. A controllable bouncing ball with physics (keyboard keys)
... Huge gap of knowledge here...
15. Creating 3D maps

What would you say some of your milestones were?

The first thing i thought of was people playing football in the crab position with legs pointing outward, and then someone running up and smashing the football into their nuts.
I laughed.

Try listing Hamming numbers after that too.

2. Creating a movieclip with certain aesthetical aspects solely with code.

That's just about getting numbers right.

3. A bouncing ball with gravity.etc
4. A controllable bouncing ball with physics (keyboard keys)

I'd say since it's really a different age already you should instead learn how to plug together various engines instead of messing with balls hittests and how to organize code with OOP. Make a 3d racing engine draft instead of priding on a ball spazzing over brush strokes in an attempt of a platformer.

We only have minimal amounts of snow here, so no schools are closed. I go to "university college" though, I'm only there like 2-3 times a week and that's for lectures in database structure or web design.. So I think I'll live :)

Anyone in the Philadelphia listen to their morning show on WMMR? Oh my god, they are so hilarious. I crack up like every morning on my way to school listening to them. =)

"As a result of the weather and, in particular the weather forecast, the Vice-Chancellor is closing the University from 4.30 pm today and postponing evening classes."

Hmm :P

He was at Leeds before Spurs :3 Although.. 6 years at spurs compared to 1 1/2 at Leeds, lol.

It has been confirmed, I'll be having another full day off tomorrow. Today I spent my entire day here on Newgrounds, but I might go for a long walk tomorrow, I used to take a two-hour walk every single day after I got home from school, and I want to start something similar to that up again, even if it's only for half an hour.

The London massive

High five through the intertubes for the snow day! Had possibly the best day imaginable. Day off (same tomorrow), and pissed about in the park for the entire day, went tobogganing and froze my toes off. Left my house at 7 30, got back at 4ish, didn't sit down all day, and the park is 4 miles from my house in a foot and a half deep snow.

And then same for tomorrow :D

It isn't as much that as Winnipeg actually knowing how to deal with a bit of snow. Some people think of it as us over here being pussies with the snow, but it's really just a way of getting another day off of school.

With most of those things, if you can perform them in one language, it's just a simple syntax change to learn in another. I generally focus on the specifics, rather than the math. In most languages, an array is an array, and a loop or conditional statement works the same way.

I would focus on the language specifics. If the case is AS3.0, I would try code based animation several different ways (ENTER_FRAME, TIMER... ect..)


Perpetually looking for time to return to the arts.

Press cntrl-enter twice. Then to change the speed you want go view (on the actual swf window), then download options and select the speed.
