Does Unity on Windows use mono, or does it use the built in CLR runtime?
I assume it uses Mono as it packages Mono dll's and other runtime stuff with the executable on Windows.

The result of dividing two ints in ActionScript is not an int.

I started on OSX at 10.1. It improved steadily up to 10.3, it's golden age. Since then the nice UI features are dragged down by MS level of code quality. I've been close to throwing my macbook off my balcony due to XCode, the only thing that held me back was the thought I might hurt someone. One day I'm going to use OpenBSD on a Texas Instruments chip and never look back.
You should do something about those anger management issues.

Have you ever tried to move a refrigerator with a bicycle? I have. There is a difference between anger and frustration.
If frustration causes you to (want to) throw something out of a window, I'd say it's an issue.

I have lately spent a lot of time using editors where, when you type { and hit return, it fills in a }. I cannot get used to this. And if I somehow do get used to it, then I'll be screwed whenever I get around to going back to editors that don't type the } for you. It will be the Chrome debacle all over again.

Dunno, Eclipse does this, Monodevelop does not and I can switch between the two without problems. But that's probably because I use both of them almost daily.

This stupid programmer just did a "git checkout -f" before doing a commit. Lost all progress for today.  WTF No No NO At least I didn't work much today so my grumpy level is "only" high.

What I like about Mercurial is how it does not make me want to quit programming forever when i use it.

Although I got kind of pissed off at it yesterday.

Let's say you accidentally do this:

rm readme.txt
touch Readme.txt
hg add Readme.txt
hg commit -m "Whatever"

If you are on OS X or Windows, you have just PERMANENTLY BROKEN YOUR REPOSITORY. The repo will continue working in its current state, but if you attempt to clone at that point, or you ever want to check out that revision you just checked in, you just can't. It will check out part of your repository, get to the readme.txt+Readme.txt (because at this point, you will have one file by each name checked in) spit out an error about "case folding" and then just stop. The only way to fix this is to check in a new revision that lacks one of the two versions. But you can't easily do that because you can't easily check a working copy out if one of these files exist! The page on mercurial's website giving advice on this suggests, in this order:

- Find a Linux machine, so that you can check out both files and remove one. (Helpful!)
- A 10-line series of commands directly calling internal mercurial primitives and which, it is implied, could hose your repository.
- Install an extension that hasn't worked since Mercurial 1.6.

Ew ew ew.

Why would you even use BASIC these days?
It's easier to get stuff like compilers set up for.
C++ is a big hassle with libraries, plus I'm just starting learning it. Might not get to actual Last Delusion development until this next semester in college.

Subversion has the same problem. On Subversion you can avoid it by setting up a pre-commit hook to check for files with the same name but different case.

Thanks for reminding me, I had this set up at my previous job but I really should add that hook to my personal repo.

Okay I'm gonna be the one to ask.
What are you building in flash that needs three dimensional vectors?

EDIT:
Woops those are 2d vectors. I must have been tired.

I am using two-dimensional vectors, and there are two of them...

Anyway I was making a Game of Life / 2D CA implementation. It works now:

Day and Night
Conway's Life
...mazes...or...something?

EDIT: For some reason when I turn on fixed framerate in Flashpunk, it runs REALLY slow in firefox.

make smaller commits dude!  Grin

this will save your ass if you rebase and end up in a world of conflict - also makes things like git bisect more useful

While working in mono on Linux I managed load Lua files through a stream and now I see that it doesn't work on windows.  WTF
I actually don't have any reason to use a FileStream for it so I guess I'll just use luaL_dofile, but that still means I wasted about 2 hours getting it to work.  Facepalm

Edit: Nevermind, I was doing this the complicated way, now it works. With 6 lines of code...
