New PC - first venture out of Windows XP world May 24, 2015, 3:53 pm
Just placed an order for a new computer. My current desktop is 8 years old, with the most recent upgrade being 5 years ago. It still works great for me, but video editing is a new hobby of mine, and the old system just isn't up to it. The new system should be able to handle 4K video editing, with multiple streams, without any slowdown at all. As a bonus, I'll be able to play newer games such as GTA5 and Skyrim for the first time.

I'll be running both the old and new system, side by side, using a KVM switch. I still use some legacy software that isn't usable on any OS newer than XP.

In addition to the below, I'll be adding four 1TB hard drives in RAID 10 as a scratch drive, and two 5TB external USB as export drives.

I Graduate High School Today. May 22, 2015, 4:25 pm
Frankly, I don't feel like I've accomplished anything. I'm just left scratching my head and asking "That was it?" I don't think anybody's going to miss me, or that anyone really wanted me there for that matter.

How do you know if your ex is on the rebound? May 7, 2015, 5:46 pm
How are you gentlemen!

My ex and I split up by mutual agreement without bad feelings. Unfortunately, over the weeks, I came to realise all the things about her that I really missed. She's called me a few times just to talk (not about getting back). But she's got together with someone else.

She tried to hide it from me. She says it was a respectful period after we split but I reckon it must have been pretty soon afterwards. He is her male best friend and she never talked about him with any affection - I once got mad with her over it, as he did a lot for her and she barely noticed - and she described him as "a weird trainspotter".

Why would she hide it from me, and (possibly) pretend it happened later than it did? Why does she keep calling me just to talk about random things? Is she on the rebound, or am I being taken for a mug? Or is this what women do, and she's genuinely treating me as a friend?

SMZ's WADs to play in 2015 May 6, 2015, 10:11 pm
If you're anything like me, you start a bunch of megawads, but then have difficultly finishing them. I used to make lists of books I planned to read in the coming new year (still do, I guess) and figured it would be good to do the same for WADs. Here are my goals for 2015:

Hell Revealed (currently on MAP27)
Reverie (MAP24)
Stomper (MAP22)
Whitemare 2 (MAP25)
Plutonia (replay) (MAP15)
BTSX 2 (MAP13)
Da Will (MAP07)
Stardate 20X6 (MAP05)
Doom 2 Master Levels

TO REPLAY:

Perdition's Gate (on UV this time)
The Lost Episode: The Evil Unleased (UV)
Heretic (UV)

TO PLAY:

Strife
Plutonia 2
Plutonia Revisited
Memento Mori
Memento Mori 2
Doom64 EX
Obituary (HMP)
The Evil Unleashed (UV)
Slaughter Until Death (UV)
The Troopers' Playground (UV)

Variables in recursive functions May 1, 2015, 8:09 am
Yesterday, in my C programming lab, I was solving problems with recursions, the hardest part was that some of them required using variables inside recursive functions for better solutions. I tried to avoid declaring variables inside them as that would harm the memory, so I ended up declaring global variables, which ended in a mess. Here is an example of my functions:

void arrayRecursion (int x[], int length) {

if (length != 0) {

//int lengthTop = length;
printf ("%d\t%d\n", x[10 - length], x[length - 1]);
arrayRecursion (x, length - 1);

}

}


The number "10" in the above code is the size of the array I declared later in the main function. I could use a constant value of 10 in SIZE, but a better way is to put another integer variable in the function to store length value like the comment I wrote, but this will make it change its value to the new length, and it will keep declaring integer type variable.

int length = 6;
int z, currentElement = 0;
int foundError = 0;

void pali (char x[]) {

if (foundError)
printf ("\nNo, it is not.");

else if (currentElement != length) {

//if (length % 2 == 0)
// z = length/ 2;

//else
// z = (length / 2) + 1;

//if (currentElement <= z)

if (x[currentElement] != x[length - currentElement - 1]) {
foundError = 1;

}

currentElement++;
pali (x);

}

}


This messy function is supposed to check if a string is a palindrom string. length's value is the length of the character array "LeooeL", same issue as the first code (putting the length as a variable). z (didn't bother to pick a name for it) should be used to indicate whenever it should stop checking, but I didn't finish the function, so I put a comment for each statement concerning it, as it's the not the issue here. Notice where I declared the variables, not favorable.

Par for the course April 30, 2015, 6:31 am
I've just suddenly found out that I got a custom title - which I had to Google to find out what the phrase means, actually. Not sure if I got it because I'm predictable or because I post in a lot of threads, not sure if I should feel honored or not really. Still better than the upcoming Forum Spammer title would be, so thx to whoever did it.
