Network engineer, game design hobbyist, and consumer of cake.
Electric eye of Polygon.
Yeah. We typically have our morning tea at one of the nearby cafes.
If I drink it everyday, yeah, I could. I typically don’t, though.
I nabbed it during the sale on Amazon. I would not get Titanfall if I had to pay Aussie retail. That’s like a month of coffee.
I sure wish there was a “my computer isn’t terribad” download option.
I actually reinstalled Win7 this week on my system drive, since it was overdue. Not going to get throttled for Titanfall.
I guess I own Titanfall now. I’ll download it eventually, because 47+GBs?
Ain’t nobody got time fo’ that.
Yeah, likely they will take the inFamous approach.
If the whole map is covered and you need to compromise a hub in order to just view it, that’s nonsense. However, if compromising central hubs is being done to gain control over the information systems in that region, that makes a bit more sense.
Yup, that’s why I aim to pick it up. Also dev and networks are moving closer and closer in the datacentre. Going to be a bit of an overlap in the future, I think.
I’m still in my screw this phase, though I have to give it up relatively soon and start picking up Python. I’ll have to bug Prinny about it sometime.
I’ve hit myself in the face more times than I’d like to admit from doing that.
Yeah, it’s actually a reference from Neuromancer, although I believe that family shows up in Mona Lisa Overdrive as well. Been awhile since I’ve read the Sprawl Trilogy.
I pretty much assume most people here have not read William Gibson. :P
I’d consider using Win8 if Microsoft gave it to me for free. Right now, 7 does the job.
I went from QuickBASIC to VB, then to C/C++. Then stopped programming
…like 11 years ago D:
The very first village to be graced by 2Raul.
…and no one will get that reference…
They are for now. Most people don’t have 4G capable phones here. Once 4G capable phones become the status quo, I expect it to be like 3G — Where Ingress in Sydney CBD area was an extreme exercise in patience.
Which Tuesday? Bison has a lot of Tuesdays.
Pokemon (Well Y anyway), has become a play on the run type of game for me and is probably the furthest I’ve gotten in a Pokemon game since probably gen 2.
I would probably actually dislike Pokemon if there were voices I’d have to listen to.
Having lived elsewhere I’m a lot more cynical. I will admit that the hidden fees and taxes on the phone contracts in the USA/Japan weren’t any fun either.
Yeah, I agree. One of the reasons I go pre-paid over post-paid here in Australia.
So intro to VB?
Some games had distinct text scrolling sounds for male\female, or characters in general. I think Illusion of Gaia\Illusion of Time was like that.
I can’t even think of how to make an onomatopoeia of it, but versions of that sound are in my head now.
Hey let us be upset about our first world problems. :P
VB: msgbox msgbox msgbox msgbox.
That’s all I remember now. :P
What.. it’s still happening? onoes!
What.. it’s still happening? onoes!Guess they haven’t fixed it. :P
I have no idea!
What can I say, it sounds better in my head than when people actually say it. Sometimes there’s good VA work, but… yeah… Essentially writing and the VA have to come into alignment.
