I've never worked with it before, but that isn't surprising. PayPal is a lousy service made by an incompetent and scummy company.
It's got a lot better. Now I can withdraw and have the money in my bank within hours. It's super convenient for international trading too. Finally it's so accessible, anyone can set one up really easily. Payment protection is amazing with it too, although a very bad deal if you're the one receiving the cash.

Overall it is a fantastic service. I know what you mean though, I once had a nasty run in with them resulting in them freezing over a thousand US dollars (a looooot of money for me at the time) for 30 days with no legal basis to do so. They have crazy power if you think about it.

This was almost 10 years ago though and they've since cleaned up their act; as far as my experience goes anyway...

Well, I'm talking technically, about their API, but if you want to talk generally about PayPal as a service, you've got Notch's account freezed, and you've got that, too. http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/paypal-freezes-regretsys-account-for-needy-children/

PayPal is the Microsoft of e-banking. Hopefully an e-banking Canonical will rise sooner or later.

This trace made me very happy. Stupid status effects I've been working on since I got back to my dorm are mostly done now. And they accidentally look kinda cool.

This one is when you instagib an enemy. Similar things happen when you get burned, poisoned, frozen, etc.

There is another message board I go on that had something similar happen. After Hurricane Katrina fucked up New Orleans said message board started collecting donations from the members to help out. After raising a little over $30,000.00 (thirty-thousand, that's not a typo) PayPal froze the account because they said it "was suspicious". They refused to unfreeze it, and made it a huge pain in the ass for the money to be returned to the people who donated.

Basically, if you want to raise money for charity PayPal will freeze your account and take a cut from the funds raised. Fuck PayPal.

Is this a bad time to say i'm starting a charity fundraiser tomorrow, then? o.o
I mean, it won't be through PayPal, but yeah.

This "life" problem is a lengthy discussion.
There's no right way to live. Every person decides that for one's self.

I've reread the first post of this Reg thread, and now I realized that right now we aren't discussing anything related to the Flash scene.
Egg's talking about his youtube channel and some coding definitely not on ActionScript.
MSGhero's not discussing anything, just complaining about his life or whatever from time to time
Random old&famous newgrounders periodically post news about their projects (just post, not even ask for anyone's opinion).
How is this a discussion of Flash scene? The thread is not living up to its initial purpose, defined by Luis.
Last time you discussed something useful, I think, it was sorting algorithms. But then again, it's not related to the Flash scene.

2130 pages of only talking about flash would be dreadful. We talked about this too before, whether it's a flash-reg lounge or a flash reg-lounge.

I found the solution, it took me all day but I finally cracked it and managed to break it down to one step:

In other news, I think I got the uploader, downloader, and launcher - for the most part - done. Still a couple lines of code to put in and some testing to be done, but it all should work. Maybe. Hopefully.

I need to find more things to tell omar to add to the game and level editor, so hop to it.

My C/asm/etc class started today. The prof told someone to buy a lighter and next time wave it back and forth (like at a concert) to signal the class's halftime break. And hw isn't technically due till the last day of class. So it looks like it'll be fun.

textbooks tho, $170 for an econ ebook rental wtf

Hah, already beat you to it. The uploader and downloader doesn't care how many files are there or what they are, they just get done.

hashes ftw, I think. Also hooray for C#. I can be fairly inefficient without much of a performance hit, especially with console apps.

I got lazy with a small portion of code relating to checking hashes to find files to download >.>

And I just stay here and argue about how confusing this thing works. It's "supposed to" be linked to the download page I'm currently working on, and I have completely no idea how this is going to be done. I'm still convinced that having the whole thing at a web page makes quite more sense.

Plus that it looks like there won't be an official Linux version released. I got it working here, native, and I'm insisting on making a topic in the community to explain how to get it running on Ubuntu. :C

To be fair, none of us except zelu really have any idea how this is going to work. Which is why I made the downloader flexible. The only thing it can't do right now is send extra POST information or headers.
It can download from HTTP, FTP, and SFTP with user/pass credentials. Yeah, i'm a badass xD

Tom told me they were gonna add attaching newsposts (pre/at release and post mortem) to submissions, so a big gamedev update to the forums might be inc as well.

FYI, the number of lines of code written for the website, excluding all external libraries, is 3700+ lines. According to Omar, that's 2.5 times the number of lines written for Concerned Joe's flash version.

I'm on beta chrome, so I've been seeing that for a while now. Get with the times.
