    @The Mighty Palm - I hate the cold too. I like the Goldilocks zone - not too hot, not too cold, just right :)

    You would hate some parts of Texas... always humid and sticky... never cool and when you take a shower... there's a dark film that recedes into the drain.

    eew ... I think you might be right about that.
    For those who responded to my update about Jurassic World Evolution ... it's 35% off on Steam right now, if you wanted it.

    Shaz that sounds like me when I got old enough to play and understand RPG's. I took any RPG I could get my hands on, even the bad ones. And yes, that means I did play the clunker that is the Spelljammer PC game.

    His PC was too old - CPU/Graphics. So I put it onto his laptop which is still a couple of years old. It WORKED!!! He thinks it's the best game ever!
    We've had our foster kitty for exactly a week, and in a couple of days we have to say goodbye :( Going to be very hard to do!

    The cat had not been desexed or microchipped and probably not vaccinated either. The rescue group I now work with has a "last litter" program where they will pay for all of these things, leaving the mother with her owners, but the condition is that the kittens are handed over for fostering.

    That way, it's guaranteed that they won't be given away to other people who will be just as irresponsible, but will be looked after, desexed, chipped, vaccinated, and then sold to people who are prepared to spend money on their pet.

    That's good, poor kittens. Hope they go somewhere great.
    If I make an app in VB.NET can it be run on a Mac?

    I can agree that calling something without real world implementation a complete tutorial is overkill, since if you know the theory, but cannot implement it in practice, it's as good as nothing. But I definitely can see why many people will avoid it, since it's not just a matter of one or two extra chapters. Unless we require student's prior knowledge of this and that, which will make it useless.

    I found one course that's JUST on GUI with Java. It assumes prior knowledge of the language, and just focuses on the gui stuff. It would be a good SECOND course to take. But it's about 5-6 years old now, so potentially a few versions out of date, which also makes it hard to follow along sometimes.

    Yeah, that's about the same as C++ 94 vs. C++ 2011 :D
    Fortunately we now have javascript,node and nwjs, which makes a ton of stuff a hell lot easier.

    My son wants Jurassic World Evolution. $100AUD on Steam. Please let me know if you see this at a discount or in a humble bundle.

    I'm after the PC version. We don't celebrate Christmas, and he hardly ever asks for stuff, so I don't have an issue getting it for him. I'd just rather not pay a small fortune for it.

    mmm $60USD (deluxe) is about $85AUD on xe.com - that's better than I thought. I did include the DLC originally in my estimate, but he says he doesn't want that. He also hasn't used Steam and may not know what DLC is, so may change his mind :D
    I'm a failure as an animal foster carer. One kitten, two days. I don't want to give him up! My whole family wants to keep him!

    That's precisely the reason I had to stop fostering animals. I ended up with two extra dogs, a cat and a goat before I finally had to make myself stop.

    Haha! I told the lady this who runs the rescue, and she said not to worry - two of her carers have SIX cats each because they couldn't let them go! I checked council guidelines, and we are only allowed to have 3, which we already have. So no keeping fosters.
    Thought I might sew today. Removes seedlings from sewing desk to outside. Returns to find cats sleeping on towel on sewing desk. No sewing.

    Yikes! Seems like every time I plan on sewing, I end up spending all day prepping, then have no time to actually start.

    I DID sew! Realised they had all vacated, so grabbed my chance. Then they decided my computer desk would be the place to be! Didn't get everything finished though, so maybe during the week or next weekend ...
    You're a hard working, kind, highly intelligent person who gets things done and doesn't just sit back and let things happen to them. I'm sure that you will be able to conquer anything in front of you. Tear through awful projects and go on to better things! I'm rooting for you!

    As Shaz has deleted her status that explained the situation I'll leave it up to her to decide if she wants to share or not. I figured a public support post wouldn't be a bad idea though. People love you here, Shaz, you should get to hear that if you have the chance. ^_^

    Awww, you're too sweet :) The status I deleted was a gripe that my family had all been sick for a week, and today I have to go back to work, to the most difficult, badly managed, soul sucking project I have ever had the displeasure to work on. And I've got it for at least another 3 months. I have no motivation to go to work.

    Yeah, it's impossible to get motivation from a toxic work environment like that. Gotta pull it in from elsewhere I guess. Bring happiness in with you or choose your own goals for success since finishing work won't be fulfilling. *shrugs* I wish I could help, but this is the best I can do.

    TFW you spend 1/2 hour looking for the haystack in the FSM packs, only to realise the project where you saw the tile wasn't an FSM project.

    haha! That's exactly it! In this case, I suppose it's okay to have a farm that doesn't have a haystack. I do have a few special resources that I know won't be there, and I can't do without as they're plot related. That'll be interesting...

    Yeah, finding the right artist or editing things together to work is always a bit of a trick. I've been pretty amazed at the things that people dig up or offer to make over at resource requests, especially when the person asking is nice like you, maybe you can get help there?

    Just played the FSM:ToB sample game. MUCH better than reading the guide/manual, and lots of inspiration. I know I'll still struggle to map!

    I like FSM collection game is very beautiful and is clear that a creator put a lot of efforts in it.

    The FSM:W&C sample game wasn't as enlightening. The mythos just contained blurb about the inspiration for the maps - no tips & tricks on creating the same effects. The maps are still beautiful though.

    Last day today. We didn't actually go anywhere or do anything. I didn't even touch my game, and I'd initially planned to spend almost the whole time working on it! The best laid plans ... SO not ready to go back next week :(

    If I don't understand something, I ask. You wouldn't believe how many pieces of other people's jobs that I know where I work, just because of that. Knowledge is power, and it's always better to know things than trust others to know them for you.

    When I see requests that say "I want" or "I need" but don't actually ask nicely for someone to do it, I don't feel like filling them. Weird?
    Nice vacation @ coast. Going home today. That building evacuation at 3:30am on our last day was a nice touch. Glad we're only on floor 8!

Welp, my graphics card died, so now I'm on my other PC but don't have another copy of my project. Time to start a side project in the meantime XD (shouldn't take *too* long to save the $$$ to get the GPU replaced)
I just realized that the 69th Common Event in my game is for the skill "Fall for Me," which inflicts Enthrall on all foes. :kaodes:
