  • Just wasted 4 hours trying to find an issue in my code. Turns out I forgot "if __cplusplus extern "C" {}"... Sometimes I feel so dumb.

    Fun fact. Czech language has more than 50 (possibly even 60) expressions for "drunk".

    Hello, how are you? long time no see.
    The Czechs drink more beer per capita than anyone else in the world, consuming on average 43 gallons (160 liters) per person, per year. I don't know it is true, but you know what is going there.

    In Czech Republic, Around 90% of the adult population have completed at least secondary education.

    You guys were probably drunk when you came up with 90% of those expressions.

    @MushroomCake28 I cannot say you're wrong. :D Many of them are related to various professions to demonstrate that everyone here drinks.
    Fiddler on the roof. Three hours of procrastination, of which I don't regret a single minute. I am seriously impressed.

    I'm a master in procrastination. There were even times when I procrastinated from my procrastinating. In fact even in this case I wanted to play a game. Instead I opened deezer, browsed through my favorite songs and saw Matchmaker in my favorites, looked it up on youtube, looked up the movie... And procrastinated from gaming by watching a 3h long movie.

    Well, I have nothing to be proud about. Oftentimes I end up regretting my procrastination either way. This is one of the few occasions where I'd call it well wasted time, because the movie was amazing.
    Good news, the corona virus mortality rate is finally on the decline.

    On two graphs? I watch that site periodically since March. And gotta say, after seeing it rise so quickly to 20% and then slowly to 21%, where it stayed for two weeks, I'm rather happy to see a drop to 19%.

    That's a single graph to be frank, the recovery to death cases is presented as a single relationship. Furthermore a sum of many countries rates which respectively vary greatly for the time being. Dynamical systems can rise incrementally so drops need to become continuous before it's fair to say there's a change in direction. Not that worldometer can't be a useful approximation but it's just not conclusive data.

    Yeah, that's true. Hopefully the trend is going to continue. Although I'm kind of skeptical too, given the influx of people on the streets.

    I promised myself that I would never attend a school for anything ever again. THAT'S How much school stunk for me...

    I forwent college and never looked back, one of my smarter decisions, really. Despite what the "norm" says, it doesn't feel worth it! Besides's i'm needed too much where I am now to go off and endure even more academic agony for a job that'll probably take me nowhere!

    Mid-school was probably my golden era during my academic time. I wasn't worried about the academic grade at all, had a good time, had good friends, and at some degree affected my opinion and view on something up till now (in a good way). Also was the time I did my hobby without worrying about a lot of things. I had dreamed that several times already.

    I never dreamt anything past and before those times. I spent my life elsewhere. I don't even "remember" I was in school. Nothing to dream.
    With restrictions getting looser, spring heat and the amount of people in public increasing I hunted down a half mask. However, with current lack of ffp3 masks and p3 filters though I wonder if I even get to use it.

    I suspect this whole situation is not going to get better anytime sooner. I mean, It might feel like its back to normal but then again, Some Doctors have estimated that there might be several phases of the Virus disappearing and coming back and this would go on till 2022.

    So I would hold on to those masks. You never know.. in these uncertain times.
    The biggest lesson I've got from the quarantine? How important are women even for a lonewolf like me. As much as I'm usually annoyed by chain posts on Facebook, this time they caused an influx of various photos, usually feminine. May not look like much, but turns out it's actually a great morale booster.

    This hint comes from someone that had a few women in the past and that is now currently married, so treasure it and don't take it as an insult. Ok?
    First of all, if u wanna get a woman then you should stop being a creep, women don't like men like that. They just don't.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I've never really understood the need of RGB LEDs on keyboards and mice. But hey, someone likes it I guess. But RGB LEDs on gaming headphones? Why? It's not like you can see your headphones.

    @Kes, I think it has to do with light sensitivity. So people can sleep with the light on, but some cannot. I can not with the light and event little blighting light. I like educational, despit people do not ask for.:rswt

    Design aesthetics are all over the place, including LEDs. I probably wouldn't mind them as long as
    1. It doesn't increase the price
    2. It isn't distracting
    3. It also has quality, not just looks cool (I once had a headphone that looked cool but the sound quality was terrible)

    LEDs in mice are distracting and I ban this kind of mice.

    @Kes Main reason for that is that I like to keep all my programs open and get right back to work the next day as soon as the computer wakes from Sleep, rather than sit through the PC boot sequence and booting each program (which does take a while, maybe because I'm working with a 2009 core). I don't have the patience to sit there for 20 minutes.

    @Riazey you can actually sustain yourself for an astoundingly long period of time without food believe it or not. Water, you've got maybe 3 days, food, technically depending on who you are you could go multiple weeks on little more than water, some more orthodox religions for instance still practice multi-day fasting for specific yearly rituals.

    Philosophus Vagus
    @Poryg Huh, I do that too then. I generally eat sometime around noon and then again around 19:00, so that'd be like 9/15. Didn't realize that was considered a fast, how many meals do regular people eat in a day?

    @Philosophus Vagus 16/8 is almost as Porgy said. It is 8 hours of eating and 16 hours of fasting. During those 8 hours though, you are only allowed to eat no more than 2000 calories.
    6.5 million beers are in need for rescue. I don't drink beer too much, but my Czech heart is sinking. It's just a pity that they priced it so high. At this price nobody is interested.

    Why not make it a promotional giveaway? That's what local specialty micro-brews in my area did, I literally drove up to the premises and got a case put in my trunk. That's the kinda thing that can change a man's preferred brand once this nonsense is over, as well as a way to get rid of stock that would otherwise be a waste. Lemons into lemonade and all that.

    Microsoft tools are a blessing and a curse. They're great, but also insanely restrictive :/

    Depends on the tool. I would definitely not call Microsoft Visual Studio insanely restrictive.

    Well, not insanely, although still. I finally managed to make raylib work in msvc. Since raylib is a C program, compiling it in msvc was out of the question. I had to compile it using cmake. But later I found that microsoft's c compiler doesn't allow for dynamic arrays.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    I'm going to have to use malloc, which isn't that much of a hindrance, but I prefer to keep things on the stack as much as possible. In fact for an earlier version of raylib I even made a multithreaded file handler that apart from loading files operated solely on stack.
    Apparently it's not just people who are hit by corona virus. My phone has set itself to English language on its own. Not that I'm complaining... :D

    It's nice to see all those people say how they now have plethora of time thanks to corona virus... I definitely can't say I belong to that group tho. Our workplace always needs to function, so I'm not going to find peace at least until April.
    According to economists our country has less than two weeks before our economy collapses. The worst thing is, I don't find any evidence to doubt that. I guess we are screwed, aren't we?

    Oh, my roommate is a security guard. Small world. Actually I suspect your job is going to become more necessary in the coming months.

A mousefolk sprite I made, I think I did good.
Discovering math. functions for damage formulas was one of the greatest things for me.
It's very useful for balancing skills to work in a variety of possible circumstances.
For example if you have a skill that is supposed to work for both mages and warriors:
Code:
Math.max(a.atk * 2 - b.def, a.mat * 2 - b.mdf)
SpaceX: First-ever successful (manned) commercial spaceflight!! In these terrible and self-sabotaging times for the world, that's a ray of excitement and hope I needed badly.
