  1. @oracle This is a property (C#). So it is just a fancier way to make the same as void isEnabled(bool setValue) and bool isEnabled() but without the parenthesis.

  3. @oracle I just try to live my life by some easy rules.

    1. Try not to be a cherry

    2. If you are not sure about somehting, think it over ( which means rewriting things like forum posts a whole lot, if I had any currency for every time I did that I would be a millionaire by now )

    3. Smile

    4. Try not to dwell on the bad things that happen, and they do happen, can not be avoided

    5. Life will surprise you

    6. Do not be a pessimist.

    Only I am affected by 2 - 6. But for number 1. If someone goes "Hey you are being a cherry right now" I get flustered, unnerved, ruffled, and sometimes almost visually upset. Because that is the LAST thing I want to be.

    I hope that makes sense.

    ( Also, just because I try not to be a cherry does not mean I do not butt heads sometimes. Matt can tell you all about that I guess. I mostly try to joke it over while going to my point )

  4. @oracle Why does this list begin in the 1980's ? and is there a list for other types of LGBT people, like Transvestites. I mean it IS blood-chilling to even think about but human population has DOUBLED since 1980 ( more or less ) and human interaction has gone through the roof compared to back then thanks to things like the internet and hookup apps and easier transportation.

    Not to mention that in the 1980's you probably had to explain to someone what trans was just like how I had to explain what pokemons were in 1999. There probably were a lot more people for that wiki list if the everyman knew what trans meant or was back then.

    Do not get me wrong, things like that should STOP. People deserve to live, even if some people hate other people. But if I hear less about Vanessa Campos as I do about Tayvon Martin. And one of those things almost happened next door for crying out loud. then I am going to question the statistics that can be over easily inferred.

  5. @oracle I thought it was ALWAYS offensive to ask.

    This is why I guess I am having such a hard time wrapping my head around it, there are multiple sources claiming different things, minor differences sure, but still different.

    Language barrier & differences in social interaction are not really helping either.

  9. @oracle I'm currently at a GTX 970 so I was wondering if an upgrade were viable now. I'd like to have a beefy graphics card at home so I can do work at home from time to time. At work we use Quadro P6000. So far neither option is cheap enough for me to actually buy at the moment since the fall of PC hardware prices in general make them hard to justify investing in.

  10. @oracle For that amount (+ a bit more) I'd buy a RTX 2080

  11. @oracle I keep checking because, even if there's little willingness to talk it seems, I still respect and appreciate some people here.

  12. @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.

  13. @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.

  14. @oracle I programmed several trainings in the past. One was about changing a pH probe of a waste water system, then one about assembling a car's front to the chassis, then one about assembling car cockpit elements, and now it's about servicing the welding gun on a robot arm. In general the clients want to train their people to do a series of task by the book, with no deviation, and they are done in VR because
    1) the machine/process doesn't exist yet and it's quicker to train it beforehand such that the time to applying the real process is as small as possible,
    2) training in the real environment costs too much because it halts/disturbs assembly line and such,
    3) train the process everywhere such that there is no need to go to the real location, which saves on traveling costs,
    4) It's flashy and good for marketing
    5) Can be repeated anytime
    6) A very critical error in real life occurs very rarely and it cannot be replicated in real life but can be in VR

  15. @oracle I know that feeling, and then I finished it and installed bob's mods. That game broke me.

  19. @oracle Boy do I have some stories for you people. Life is a journey. Hard to explain, but 3 years and a 1000 miles changes a lot about how you see the world.
