Some Dirk did this to one of the computers in one of my labs.

If you find out who that is, I suggest you retaliate this way: take a screenshot (PrtScn) of their desktop, then set that as their desktop, then hide all their icons and the start menu. They won't be able to click anything!

Bah... This is just nasty. I hate if someone messes around with my desktop. Even if it's just sorting the icons in alphabetical order - they have to be sorted after purpose. I know, a little OCD of me...

@Yoshinkeru: This is a great idea. :D I'll have to remember that. XD

I just saw a poster advertising a lecture on "Regulation of cerebellum morphogenesis by the dose of Sonic hedgehog and the Engrailed genes".

Well, I've been offline for about 1.5 months because the wireless network I was using was taken down. I'm currently back online, but I don't know how long that will last. Hopefully, I'll be able to get caught up in the various areas I frequent.

While I was offline, I freed up enough drive space to re-install WinXP. Unfourtunatly, this means I need to rebuild my settings (and my hardrive structure) to get things where I'd like them to be. Because my drive is being rebuilt, I have about 12-15gb of duplicated data that I need to sort through. Hopefully I'll be able to clean it out, and get things in a manageable manner quickly.

On a side note, Raxco Perfect Disk (a disk defragmenter tool) isn't working for me. It says that it's unable to mount my computer. Anyone happen to have any suggestions on who to fix this? If I can use Raxco, it's much more efficient and clean than using the MS provided disk defragger. Like as in, it can actually defrag your drive before Windows boots up, enabling it to defrag system files. Also, it inteligently defrags the drive, moving the commonly used files to the fastest area of the disk, and the less frequently used files to hte edges and slower areas of the disk. And, unlike the MS defragger, it moves the empty/freespace to the end of the drive, instead of leaving it scattered about and inbetween files, like the MS defragger does. This helps keep fragmnting down when you add new files. Any help would be appreciated. However, considering this is a message board mainly dealing with USFs and other similar things, I don't expect to get much help here. But I also figure it won't hurt to ask either.

Anyway, that's why I've been so quiet lately. Mouser X over and out.

Double post!

Just for kicks, I thought I'd mention Narbacular Drop here. It's a very short game, but with the potential for lots of fun. You can find it here. After you've given this game a look, take a look at this. The guys who made Narbacular Drop are the same guys who made "Portal." Apparently, they were hired on the spot, when they showed their game.

If you decided not to look at Narbacular Drop, at least take a look at the video I posted. Once you've watched that, I suggest you give Narbacular Drop a second thought. Again, while the game is short, it has a lot of potential for some very interesting "physics breaking" ideas. And, if the game does bore you, you can find a level editor (or tools, I should say) in their downloads section. If the instructions they provide are inadequate, try these. They simplify the process for those who would like to try this out.

Oh, and one last thing. For some reason, some of the levels don't load all of the objects properly. If this happens, simply restart the level. It should work that time (I wish I had known this. I spent 10 minutes looking for a turtle, and finally dived into the lava just to see what would happen). Hope you enjoy this fun and inovative (though short) game. Mouser X over and out.

Here's some code I wrote for Codename: Blubberfish, a server utility written for Jazz 2. It's currently being ported over from Trainer Maker Kit to Visual C++ 6 by hand.

This particular code is to help fix the game's online cooperative play.

void CBlubberfishDlg::OnCoopfix()
{
    // Coopfix for Blubberfish
    // Uses jazz.h by J2NSM (Jam, Grytolle and NeoBeo)
    // Code is (C) 2006 Peter S. Conway
    // certifiedunknownfile@gmail.com

// Inits and stuff

    static int coopfixenabled;
    static int version;
    static int gametype;
    static int online;

Jazz2 j2;

// this function only works with 1.23

    version = j2.Version();

    if (version == 9) {
        j2.TSFEcho("|[BF] Sorry, this hack doesn't work with TSF.");
    }
//    else {
// if (version == 6) {

    gametype = j2.GetGameMode();

// this next block of code doesn't work for reasons unknown
//    online = j2.ReadByte(0x58B0C0);

//    if (online < 1) {
//        j2.Echo("|[BF-System] This hack only works in online play.");
//    }

//    else {

    j2.EchoToSpy("[BF] JJ2 appears to be running 1.23, proceeding with patches.");

    if (coopfixenabled == 1) {
        j2.EchoToSpy("[BF] Error occured: JJ2 has already been patched.");
        j2.Echo("|[BF-Coopfix] Coopfix has already been enabled!");
    }
    else {

// Area End Of Level
    

    j2.PokeHex(0x439532,6,"90 90 90 90 90 90");
    j2.PokeHex(0x439555,1,"EB");
    j2.PokeHex(0x439527,1,"02");

    // Area End Warp

    j2.NOP(0x439661,12);

    // Area Revert Morph

    j2.NOP(0x4397c8,6);

    // Queen Boss
    j2.PokeHex(0x423160,1,"02");
    j2.PokeHex(0x423168,5,"F0 B7 5D 00 06");

    // Swartz Boss

    j2.PokeHex(0x422850,12,"C7 05 F0 B7 5D 00 06 00 00 00 90 90");
    
    // End of the block

    j2.Echo("[BF-Coopfix] Coopfix has been enabled.");

    coopfixenabled = 1;
    }
//    }
//    }
//    }
}
Hey... I went MIA huh? by PokeParadox at 5:44 AM EDT on August 6, 2006
hi I'm just showing my face to prove I'm not dead or something... I have been really busy twards the end of last semmester which is what caused me to disappear in the first place.
Now I have a resit coursework which I'm working on... I have 5 days to finish it but it is coming together... I could have it finished by tomorrow if I rushed so I'm not panicking yet.

I have also been building up my code library... I wrote a simple encryption lib for use in protecting data in game saves... it's not so hard for someone to crack but it will deter most people from trying to edit data :P

greetz :)
