Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm expecting the water to eventually rise up to mini castle's level so it will be "accurate", and then we zoom in.
Having tiny people there would be goofy, though.

Re: #903: Extended MInd

...I have just wasted 20 minutes trying to find a counterexample which is not a loop. I don't think that's possible. Since there's a finite number of articles, you either will come across one of the many that do lead to philosophy, or end up in some group that does not, which would end up having to...

Re: #903: Extended MInd

I can verify the alt text is true for ISO/IEC_8859-1. (Just something I had bookmarked)
And it went through Mathematics.

A way to make this a game could be finding the page that is the most hops away from philosophy (without loops, of course).

Re: San Diego Comic-Con Meetup?

If I attend next year, I'd be interested in doing something. (I'm here this year, but things were weird.)

Re: Many-to-many self-referential SQL

I was trying to do it with MySQL, and keep forgetting how different syntax can be between different versions. I end up thinking about the language as more of a standard than it really is. WITH does look like exactly what I'd need. I was looking into Postgresql in the past, and this is just one more ...

Many-to-many self-referential SQL

I had an old idea for a project of mine, which I realize would be better done without involving the database at all, but I'm still curious if there would be a solution. The idea was inspired by what I'd read about Scribblenauts and Objectnaut . Essentially, it's just classifying things into groups, ...

Re: Linux C++ IDE Recommendations

QtCreator is supposed to be good. I haven't used it. I just started using this for a project in class. (The teacher actually told us to use KDE3, but there were problems with that). It's the first IDE I've used other than Visual Basic years ago, and since I can't really compare it to others, I'll s...

Re: Coding Competition #3.141593 (update: 4/23; new referee app)

Oh, for some reason I had it in my head that the deadline was Friday. :/ But now I have a class project I should be working on instead, so I think I'm out. If there ever is some (more distant) future run of this, though, I'd be interested. Also, as a sidenote, most of my time I wasted trying to get ...

Re: Coding Competition #3.141593 (update: 4/23; new referee app)

Gameboard.toString returns a string with a newline on the end, so the extra newline would be overkill. Hmm. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, then. I get stuck waiting for input there, and adding that in fixed it for me. :/ I saw it was there in the first version; otherwise would've just looked for ...

Re: Coding Competition #3.141593 (update: 4/23; new referee app)

game/Player.java line 61 should be:
pm.send(id + "\n" + round + "\n" + timeRemaining + "\n" + board + "\n");
(It's currently missing that last \n)

Re: Coding Competition #3.1415927 (BomberTron Isolation)

Finally got the referee working for me, and I found some possible problems. timeremaining is not sent. It's only: playerid\n round#\n board\n Also, if a bot program gets stuck in a loop, it is not forcibly terminated at 60 seconds, which could cause trouble during the tournament. This is on Windows,...

Re: Coding Competition #3.1415927 (BomberTron Isolation)

Surely you're joking. I wasn't, actually. And I will admit I'm inexperienced in matters such as this, so I don't understand why using php would be a "joke". I know it's not the best choice, but it's what I'm most comfortable with. My other option is C, and I've only done basic things with...
