        • @drinkingpony Beautiful, hypocritical assumption. I'm not calling for death to TERFS or Torries. And you have been far too antagonistic to be "just askin'." And feel free to quote scripture, I use it myself. It's a better reference than Dewey! http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875386

          Oh I tell you why. While not calling for the death of groups you do not agree with directly you certainly do not seem to be too keen on calling it out either.

          In your other post you talk about those you deem worthy of execution. Worthy ? ... WORTHY ! Face it. You became just as bad as the people you deem worthy of disrespect or worse. May that mark upon your skin be forever be a reminder of the person you became you swore you did not want to be.

          Everyone who thinks I am an asshole should realize something. Do it ! I will happily martyr myself in your memories and off of this platform. The next time something bad happens or the 'wrong' person gets elected I want you all to blame me. Scribus can quote Romans 2:1 and you can all rest assured that everyone is safe as you did the right thing by closing yourself off from answering questions and using shaming tactics to establish dominance and promote group-think.

      • Semi related note I have never been in a supermarket that was above 295 degrees K. I guess this is somehow a requirement when you have a lot of products on the shelves that can possibly spoil ?

        That and to offset the heat that some of the fridges emit on the backside.

        But I guess it would be really entertaining to watch coca-cola bottles violently explode when someone leaves them out in the unloading section for too long.

        Its probably not going to affect consumers in a big way.

      • I'm extremely frustrated. I have to dumb down my VR training program a lot more than I already have. I'm told that people shouldn't be allowed to drop grabbed items. I mean WTF! They take out all the fun of flinging items around. Also all the dynamic things I've built in should be gone. "Only activate the items that are immediately needed at the moment of the procedure!".

        • @oracle In industrial maintenance, dropping items and tools can cause serious setbacks. My opinion is that a user SHOULD be able to drop items, and that the dropping of the items should create a natural penalty.

        • @adiwan I am interested in your work here because I have a lot of experience in writing technical training documentation. Mostly with an emphasis in SQF (Food safety and quality) procedures but also in the documentation of my own and my teams poorly poorly written code.

        • @oracle The main problem is that I'm not responsible for the storyboard of the training. I'm the one who has to convert the gibberish into code. What I get is a very linear script that tells the user what to do and when the action has been done the next instruction appears. I use a giant state machine (in my current one there are about 80 states) for that purpose. Every time an action or an instruction has ended the state machine advances. The storyboard has 3 "difficulty levels" in mind in which the first level the user get all the instructions and the interaction items are highlighted. The second difficulty level is the same but without the instructions, and the 3rd is with no highlighting. In every state only the currently needed items are interactable and nothing more. My current training has also a little quiz in the second level and a thing where the user has to order the steps on a whiteboard. It's on the level of a kindergartener.

      • Javascript is so freaking weird, I can have an object with methods

        var example = {
        addOne: function(x) {return x + 1}
        }

        And I can call the addOne function by using a string to get it from inside the object,

        example["addOne"](0);

      • Programmers only enjoy difficult CS projects like writing compilers because, although it's difficult and can take a long time, the requirements never change and the problem is very concrete. Unlike the BS in software development where the requirements change EVERY OTHER DAY and your company NEVER IMPLEMENTS YOUR SOLUTIONS!!!! ..... I'm not mad

      • I understand that many Star Trek fans disliked the JJ reboot films. I loved them for their own reasons. I do have one issue that I just CAN NOT overlook. At 25 minutes into the film you can see the NCC-1701 being built. The Enterprise in the prime timeline, along with literally every other starship was not built on the planet, but built in space!!!
