This was all pretty priceless :D
I was thinking about making fun of your WorldThing, but then I saw ICamerable :P

Also, LifeHackers' got another programming one. Which is interesting considering they've only done a single coding thing once before (to my memory, at least)
As to the other page, I think what language you learn first should be entirely dependent on who you are. For example, if you're visually inclined and/or need to see visual results quickly, I would recommend picking up AS3. If, on the other hand, you don't mind taking it a bit slow and don't want to learn a whole bunch of extra stuff, i'd recommend Java. Any way you look at it, C-based languages shouldn't be the very first thing you reach for.

No idea what you're talking about.

I've never really gotten the appeal of the animation methods discussed for the last page or so, I'm kind of 'olskool' in that respect, just draw 4 frames of char doing something then do another set for char doing something else so It's never really applied to me but I've been playing a lot of Rayman Origins and Legends lately, really, really beautiful games. They looks almost like flash games with how crisp everything is. And the movement of all the individual character parts are so deliciously smooth, now I can kind of see the appeal. I'd like to do something like that some day. They are so insanely well designed as well, I recommend them highly.

I shouldn't be playing at all I have apps to be working on ;___;

OK you guys can go back to nerding out over entity systems now.

The later ones (I think) used the ubi art framework which looks like flash pro with dragonbones' bone tool (not the shit one in flash) and the animation thing I just linked.

Neat.

And now I'll contribute something neat: did you know the same time taken to make the last 123 pages of this thread is about the same time it took for the 600 pages before that?

As much dead time as this thread gets (even though we make up for it like now), that's pretty impressive. This forum musta sucked before I got here.

I'm playing with the idea of remaking one of my old games in 3D. (before & after)

http://i.imgur.com/9ZfJrdI.gif

I'm having a real blast with Unity. I downloaded it to try out the new 2D stuff in 4.3, and then found that I was having much more fun with 3D. It's a shame you can't use the lights with 2D sprites.

It's a big mental adjustment for me. I am particular about the way I like to structure my code, and Unity is having none of it. After chilling myself out and just going with it, I am finding that it is much more fun. :)

I actually learned C# because of Unity, but I quickly figured out that I was having way more fun with the base C# stuff (and MonoGame) than with Unity, so I just said fuck it.

"Today’s Google Doodle celebrates what would have been the 107th birthday of computer pioneer Grace Hopper (1906-1992) just in time for the 'Hour of Code' kicking off Computer Science Education Week."

Hour of Code? CompSci Education Week? Wait, am I missing something here?

Just noticed that Scout is a beta. Looked it up, and the full version will eventually be paid. Full version = advanced telemetry. Hopefully ccloud doesn't disable the program when that time comes.

i feel like they'll screw themselves if it's not really cheap

Sidestepping code related talk for a second, do any of you folks have last.fm accounts?
I have Luis and a couple other NGers but none of the rest of you I don't think. Been burning through my backlog and stalking friends for albums I missed this year.

Since this is such a short post I'll pad it out with a nice comic from http://nedroid.com/

I can't focus unless I'm listening to music or pure silence. And my keyboard clacks loudly, and there's always some sitcom on the tv in the lounge.

oh, god, I wouldn't know what to do without it. I'd say a good portion - if not most - of us listen to either music or complete silence when coding. Most of the time it's music, since that's more interesting than silence.

in fact, have a website.

By the way, does anyone else NOT use the proper finger layout on keyboards?
I type with six fingers and my thumbs.

Thumbs for the spacebar, ring fingers for the shift keys, and first and second fingers for everything else (left hand tends to stay on the left side of the keyboard and right hand stays on the right) - occasionally i'll switch it up some, but that's the general idea.

I've been using pandora, but it's kinda irritating that I can't add songs to my station. I liked a song and added it as a station feed a few months ago, but it hasn't shown up at all. Plus it doesn't have some lesser known songs (I suggested it to them, no telling when that'll come through). Anyone use spotify?

Anyway, I've been trying to rethink how the P-bot daily picks module would display on phone.

You can find a prototype of it here

Its a barebones carousel type of thingie, so nothing mind-blowing.

Anyway here's a more polished design of it below.

My question is, does that feel like too great of a departure from how you are used to seeing it?

One of the main reasons for the change is that at tablet label on a responsive layout, it breaks the grid having an uneven number of entries (5) along a row. Nowhere else does the site have uneven slots so it's kind of annoying and I had to think of a new way of re-envisioning the module, BUT it might be a fun departure considering there is no other module like the Daily Picks one, and perhaps it warrants a different approach to it to spice it up?

Pffft. I remember tell target.

And about music, I use The Hype Machine.
