It doesn't bode well that I haven't had a follower in a while despite my constant updating...this saddens me.

i've got all of two subscribers on my channel. Don't worry, you're probably doing well :P

My god, my application is a monster D:
The webcam capture rapidly consumes memory and never releases it again, somehow.
Somewhere along the "take the packet apart, send it, and put it back together on the other end" bit, i'm using almost all of my CPU. On top of that, encryption and compression takes for-fucking-ever (about three seconds, which is ungodly long when we're talking about streaming data) and uses what's left of my CPU.

I'm going to temporarily give up on the webcam thing and move on to something I know works, audio. Hopefully i'll be able to pinpoint spots that need optimization with that.

No I don't have an iPhone 5, I was trying to make a point but I guess it was lost in translation, it's a fairly used 4.

Ah kk soz. I quite fancy a Google phone thingy. My phone is smashed due to a drunk man falling on me :(

Aww, but it's more fun being snobbish :P
And maybe they'll learn something? Who knows

To be fair, I am on your side, why bother learning AS2 when you could be learning AS3 which is faster and easier!


Speaking of snobbish, I haven't seen 4ur around lately. Did he die?
I kid, I kid :P

Metal Solid Gear, although that's not what it actually means.

Monosodium glutamate, I think?
Flavor-enhancing acid-salt-thing added to most cheap (and even some expensive) Chinese foodstuffs.
You came up with the name when Hero was taken and you had Chinese takeout, right?

Eggy Mario, because normal Mario just wasn't enough.

A true shakespearian tragedy :'(

Anybody keeping up with Breaking Bad? Serious nailbiting is going down right now.

And did anybody actually know zrb well? His departure was very sudden, not like the slow decrease of posts that usually happens, coupled with the fact his last post was quoting me it all feels very cryptic.

fun fact: I always pronounced it zay-are-bee, to this day I have no idea why, I've never pronounced z like that before or since.

We'd get to storyboard, but there'd only be one sketch of everyone typing on a computer. Nothing else, no action or movement.

A pilot that gains a cult following, I'd settle for that.

Not going to lie, I opened up a notepad file after reading that and tried to see if I could spell any words accidentally using my face...

NO SHAME!

Funny how the Reg Lounge just freezes like this for days at a time then we fill up a page in a few hours.

Also, why is it so difficult to find out your National Insurance Number? I never got a card and now I'm being told it's going to take like a month to get it, fuck this system.

inb4 >that edge

I'm lucky enough to be somewhat prepared but what if I wasn't and I needed government help urgently? This is how people slip through the cracks. Fuck privacy give me a chip in my brain at birth so I don't have to go through all this bullshit honestly.

Bring two pieces of ID to your local job centre, one photographic, then they'll tell you then and there. It's odd that you didn't get a card, I got mine pretty promptly when I was meant to a few years back :S

You should. I believe in you.

I updated fd from out of the beta version, and all of a sudden the GameInput classes were available to me. Previous versions didn't let me access it, and adobe's beta docs say the class is AIR only. But it seems to work.

linky. Of course, it's an 11.7 or 11.8 feature, and of course it doesn't seem to work with pepper flash.

Wowww, yeah. thats awesome. does not work on chrome as you said. I did not think flash player had direct access to a game pad. I am current working on a 2D fighter using C# and XNA game studio. one of the reason was cause flash could not take game pad input directly.

I'm in the pre-stages of a fighting game, so controllers would be kinda cool there. I'd need to make a guide on how to enable it...doubt many people will update flash and disable pepper when they can just use the keyboard. And idk how importing GameInput is handled when you have a prior version of flash, as it wouldn't exist. Hmm...
