fuck no, nerds are way too obsessed with numbers and being "not mainstream" and excluding people from their group that they are just as bad as the people who always buy mainstream.

just buy whatever it is that fits your needs

The way you said that in your hateful way, made me think you were excluded by a group of nerds who you envied, and therefore have a hatred for them and there ways.

When you guys get older, and barely have time to wipe your own asses, you'll care much less about what's the most powerful or fastest.

'Best' will be whatever you can take out of the box and use with as little time and work as possible.

I love this site, but lately, it's slidin' into dark territory. I just watched some piece of diarrhea with a giant cereal eating hamster.

Blammed. No laughs. Not even one. It just laid there, like my ex-wife. The reviews are priceless. Here's my favorite:

"I'm not sure how I can rate this, it's just.... good job?", and a nice juicy 10 of course.

Factor in the recent [KK] assaults, the 20 or so decent ignored movies I've seen that have come and gone through the portal, and I can tell you that things are getting a bit scary up in here. I'm pretty sure if Egoraptor filmed himself farting diarrhea through a straw into a cup, it would go directly to the front page, right out of judgment, and hang out there for a good solid month, conservatively. Nothing against him. He's a popular dude. I get it. That's cool.

But lately, 'everything by everyone', is starting to look more like 'everything by a few people we know, and everyone else can go suck it'. That's a problem, and it needs fixing.

I watched Food, Inc last night. Every day I get more angry at the world. How the fuck does something like this happen? I don't think the problem is as bad in UK but i can only see us mirroring America increasingly. Did you know a single McDonalds hamburger contains meat from 1000 different cows which is then washed in Ammonia to kill E Coli before being "formed"? Tasty.

From now on I am only ever going to eat meat from the butchers and plant a garden to grow as much veg/herbs myself as possible.

If anyone is into food then PLEASE watch this, especially if you're in America. It'll open your eyes to the fucking shit people are being fed, and what you can do to change it.

On a related note, Rage Against the Machine at Download Festival last saturday was the best live experience of my life. They played brilliantly - as they did in 08' at Reading - but the atmosphere was simply unbelievable. I've never felt anything like that, and I've seen quite a few good live bands.

It honestly shouldn't matter if you play to root it (like unlocking on an iPhone). When it's rooted you can install any of the OS meaning you can have the newest version even if it hasn't properly been released for your phone (and they work better because they've been developed independently based on speed).

Try to go for a HTC phone as they seem to be the best though.

Also, rooting is incredibly fun ;)

You are correct Jimp. The problem is worse in America. Buy organic. Jamie Oliver knows what he's talking about, and his primary concern is obesity and diabetes. The real scary stuff is pesticides and new strains of antibiotic resistant disease.

True. It's the lesser of two evils, and now you all know why I live in farm country, and grow a lot of my own food. We certainly didn't move here for the incredible conversation.

Just this morning I overheard some locals talking about how that Kenyan fiend Obama was solely responsible for the oil spill, followed by the observation that Arizona's new immigration policies were too liberal, how Glenn Beck is misunderstood, and they wrapped it all up by saying, and I quote, "Thank God for Sarah Palin". Yikes. I understand she is supposed to visit the UK soon, and have a quaint chat with former PM Thatcher. Seeing that Lady Thatcher is in the throes of dementia, and that Sarah Palin coudn't outwit furniture, I'm guessing they'll a lot to talk about.

No, school is way more interesting and less repetitive than 'most' jobs.

I agree with that. The trick is to not get bogged down in the busywork assigned to you by professors, and to always make time to seek out the answers to questions that interest you.

To be honest, I can't wait to get older. I mean I enjoy being a teenager, it's just in the world there's so much to see and do. I'm probably naive and hopeful though, but I can dream.

You can't use a for..in loop properly with Vectors because Flash loops through them as Strings? How very odd.

Try 'for each' instead.


#include <stdio.h>
char*p="#include <stdio.h>%cchar*p=%c%s%c;%cmain() {printf(p,10,34,p,34,10);}";
main() {printf(p,10,34,p,34,10);}

Well, I want the actual index for the element rather than just the element itself (for things like splicing in the right place and whatnot). I know that I could either use a plain 'for' loop, or could cast the string value into an int, but I just found it rather strange.

If you're confused by what I'm going on at, try this code:

var a:Vector.<Object> = new Vector.<Object>();
a.push( { car:7 }, { car:9 }, { car:3 } );
for (var i:Number in a) trace(i);

On my computer at least, using FlashDevelop, I get an error for implicit conversion of String to Number for that. Changing 'i' to a String variable allows it to function properly. I was just bemused by it all.

Oh. I thought that Arrays were iterated through using Numbers or ints, but it appears as though they use Strings just like everything else. I suppose I got the idea from using undeclared variables in loops back in AS2, but it's odd - I thought I had done this before in AS3. Oh well.
I better go back and learn how to use things like the addition operator now - clearly my knowledge of AS3 isn't as decent as I thought it was.

I don't know, it's kinda late to get l4d1. All the people I play with already have over 1500 hrs, it's gonna take a long time to catch up. I played l4d2 for a few weeks when it came out, and then after a while I came back to l4d and I was surprised to see there were still people playing, I thought the whole place would be deserted. Turns out that not only are people still playing, but there's also a modest pro community of about 100-200 people who regularly pcw every night. The game never really picked up on the pro scene though, there were some lans, and some tournaments on ESL, but you won't get very far in the international pro scene by playing l4d. It's mainly a european thing now, there's a website called league 4 dead which organizes online competitions regularly, but as far as I know no one, or at least very few people have ever got paid for playing l4d.
