  • Well, I paid the price for no sleep and crappy work schedule this night. Between midnight and 4 am I was completely out of reality.
    How in the world did phone numbers from my gmail account appear in my messenger despite contact synchs turned off? :mad:

    @Kuro DCupu You think Google's bad about doing it? Here in America, phone companies used to keep your address in the phone book as well as your phone number and name, unless you paid a fee for them to keep you out of it. Imagine someone being able to just buy a book and then know where to find you.

    Well, ISPs do/used to do it too and the data is/was available to some IP tracing websites, so just an IP was enough to find a person's name and exact home address without buying anything. And from that we have pranks like https://youtu.be/7dv6U2FIphI
    In our newspapers we have an article that tells us to go exercise outside. When we should avoid heat to avoid collapsing. Yeaaaaah, sure.

    I have exercised in 39°C. Ran a 6 km run, managed to finish only 4.5 of them though. It stopped being funny when I started shivering from cold... In 39°C temperatures no less.

    It's simple. Just exercise at night.
    Not sleeping at night is bad for you though...

    Fun fact. You have a gate that has door inside so people can enter when it's closed. But leave the gate just 10 cm open and ...
    I'm going to leave the work I'm doing next Spring. I'm too tired to continue for another year.

    In September I'll have 14 days holidays, so I'll take the time to recuperate. I'll somehow manage October and hopefully through Winter I'll be able to sleep relatively OK.

    Like my job.
    I wanted to make a tutorial video. Yesterday I wanted to have some sleep. Well, looks like the construction workers have other ideas.
    It is always amusing when people attack my points for being irrelevant, but then present even less relevant ones in an attempt to guilt me.

    That said, I usually prefer to define "goal of the discussion" first before proceeding further. One of the examples is what do you mean by "advancement". Without an agreement of the definition, it can only lead to disagreement or even conflict.

    @Poryg you've done it again, by the way. Like the YouTube search algorithm, Poryg's exact method for selecting invigorating status topics that draw large responses is held close to the chest, and is a sought after trade secret.

    @standardplayer Actually, I have yet to make a status update people answer with at least 50 comments. So it's not really true :P
    I used to dislike the concept of open-source. But seeing how much awesome stuff is happening thanks to open-source, I've grown to love it.

    My main problem with open source were two things. One of them was, no income. The other one... Unless you use GPL2.0, someone can just take it, twist it into something and sell it and you can't really do anything about it.

    Third problem is ransoming code. Previous year there was a controversy regarding Linux and code of conduct. The code of conduct would essentially shun people of certain opinions. And some threatened to take down their code if that had happened, which would crash all major distros.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Now that was a perfectly legit reason to do so and that's not the main thing. The problem is, large corps are getting more and more involved with open-source. And in their hands holding code hostage can prove to be a large negotiating leverage.
    Alright, as unlikely as it seemed like at first, I made two more tutorial videos today. Do not let available plugins limit your menu's look!
    TIL that in C++ making functions virtual can really mess with debuggers and is a nice antidebug measure.

    I'm sure it can't be too hard to find a way around that. Also, why would you want to mess with debuggers anyway? If someone really wants to reverse engineer what you make, they will eventually. Your time would be better spent on code quality.

    Actually, I was hacking PwnAdventure3 and messing around in it with GDB. Could not set breakpoints at or display virtual functions. And no, there's no way to reliably circumvent that, because virtual functions mean that the pointers get assigned on runtime, while pointers to classic functions are assigned statically.
    I have met the most sophisticated scammer so far. Weeks of building trust, four fake official papers and he even "paid the tax".

    Guess the guy thought he could get you.

    They like to use massive sums and play up their desperation in an attempt to get people to think they're the ones getting a better deal and they love to appeal to sympathy.

    Like those ones where they claim that if you help them smuggle 20 million out of their country that their evil government is trying to seize illegally after his wife died, he'll pay you 15 million.

    There's people out there who get attached to the idea that this could be real and they desperately want to believe. They start to feel hope and become more and more sure of themselves as it goes on.

    It's heart breaking especially when it happens to old people. $50,000+ sent to scammers.

    Well, I receive two scammer emails per week, so I always waste their time. I would bombard them using SMTP, but there's a problem that having my custom modem and IP would be too expensive.

    Couldn't sleep through day, so I spent some time hacking PwnAdventure3. The C++ pointers are really killing me.

    Stronghold crusader is so far a game that gave me the most dark-lordy feeling. Children happily running around various evil structures... :D
    Being a sociopath can be tough. People assume I'm like them, but despite obvious clues nobody sees. They don't even see I'm different.

    This is beyond my understanding to be really honest, but I just want to say that a lot of us here like you and care about you very much, Poryg, and that it IS okay to be wildly different. Do not ever hate yourself for it.

    @Wavelength I don't really hate being different, it has its advantages. It just complicates some of my social interactions.
    My spoken English sounds so awkward thanks to my Slavic influence that I am thinking of employing heavy Czech accent while speaking English.

    Lol, Slavic prince. Even Slavic royalty would speak proper English :D
    Finally managed to run PwnAdventure3 with server on a virtual machine... Only to find out that I might be better off in actual Linux.
    For some reason my leg suddenly hurts when I try to step on it... right under my knee. Do I have to chop it off or what? :(
    Watching Blizzard's battle.net shop, I have no doubt that Blizzard is slowly transforming into Activision.

    But the prices go up unreasonably, we're now receiving utter garbage as "dlcs",... It's ridiculous. For example if you pay 29.99€, you get Warcraft 3. If you pay 10€ more, you get four skins to HOTS, a mount to World of Warcraft,... And so far no content to Warcraft 3. Ridiculous.
    Wavelength

    My take on this is that the new models make being a "smart consumer" mandatory rather than optional. If the skins and mount feel unnecessary to you, you can just pay 29.99€ and enjoy WC3. I tend to spend no real money on games with gacha systems, just because the cost to get "what I want" is unknown.

First Ten Minutes of my Caretaker inspired game

Finally, I got a good Gmail message [from smg5urded]
"This game does look a bit plain, but, I'm sure this does not destroy the experience as a whole. Monsters fit your style of game-play, mapping looks crude but I'm sure you can make it better if you do a remake of Forgotten Eclipse"
Going to start a new project today. OMG, it will be on RPGMaker MV. :D
Paid material WIP~

This is Alchemy pack.
I decided to add more witch elements.

Now we have wooden props, candles, pots, and potion bottles.
We also want to add herbs, kettles, fireplaces, etc.
