Looks similar to Soulver which I have on the iPad.

Available now for 1400$ a piece. I doubt I can convince my employer that I need two of those. Well, for that price it's hard to convince myself that I need two of those.

I'm a father myself. I can't imagine anything more painful than one of my children getting seriously hurt or ill or one of them dying. Whenever I read about a child that died the thought comes to mind and my stomach cringes.

Hi wideeyedguy

If the Windows Search plugin is not working for you please don't hesitate to post your problems in that specific thread, even if it's 3 years old.

Although I'm not really using the WS plugin I have it installed and it was working just fine when I tried it just now. As you have seen in the WS plugin thread there have been people reporting crashes, which, unfortunately, I have never been able to solve. So, maybe with your help I can try to pinpoint that problem.

So many books to read... So much to learn... So little time... Dammit! mad

+1 w/Renegade. I'm actually doing as much as possible to reduce my technical and energy footprint these days. My new goal: As little as possible - and simplify, simplify, simplify.

Home automation could actually reduce your energy footprint though.

Interesting concept.
Will it be possible to specify exact sizes?

The current concept assumes that shapes change their sizes depending on with how many other shapes they have to share the available space.

So with exact size, do you mean the size within one cell, or within the whole drawing?

U mnie działa (Works for me)

Same here I'm afraid.

alxwz, after you authorize on the rmilk.com web page make sure to go back to FARR and hit enter on the single entry that should now be displayed (see Getting started on first post). If it still doesn't work for you let me know.

My NANY contribution for this year is a simple description language for drawings and diagrams (which I've named Drawskrit). My main goal is to be able to describe diagrams with text. The description language should be natural and simple (I don't want a diagram programming language).

Its current state is experimental. I have a JavaScript implementation that demonstrates the current specification. I'm afraid it's not very useful yet though. I'm not sure I'll ever get it to a state where it'll be powerful enough to specify real-world non-toy diagrams without becoming a complex monster language.

A few of the current obvious shortcomings:
  • needs more shapes (e.g. arrows)
  • current text alignment sucks (specification bug)
  • dotted/dashed looks horrible with thick lines (implementation bug)
  • needs more documentation (e.g. layers)
  • JS implementation needs to be decoupled from the HTML demo page

If I ever get it to a state where it's actually useful, I'm planning to implement it as a cross-platform tool which can be integrated into an automated build process.

A non-formal specification (i.e. a description) and the JavaScript implementation can be found here:

https://github.com/phitsc/drawskrit

Drawskrit is open source.

If someone wants to play around with it please direct your browser here:

http://rawgit.com/phitsc/.../master/js/drawskrit.html

As a first example, paste the following text into the big text box on the left of the above web page:

[copy or print]
orange background filled shapes
_
small blue circle small green circle
tiny purple square big red triangle tiny purple square
small olive smile

==
fat navy huge empty dashed circle

I always found  Andrew Binstock's articles outstanding.

What I find interesting: I can still remember the shock when I held the last print edition of C++ user journal in my hands, and my subscription turned into a Dr. Dobb's print edition subscription. Then that ended as well. And now not even the online edition is sustainable (which, I must admit, I did not subscribe to). I could well imagine that this will happen to many other ad-based services in the not so distant future.

I think these would be great for programming and I'd very much like to have a pair.
That's what they said about pyjamas!

Until you realise that you can simply program naked and do less laundry...

But only in Australia

The main reason I never made an Android app is because of my profound dislike for Java (which I know is absurd). I've investigated alternatives (e.g. Scala), but they all seem to be more than sub-optimal (especially for novices of the platform).

I'm planning to check out one of the cross-platform solutions one day though.

I think these would be great for programming and I'd very much like to have a pair. I'm very curious to learn what they'll cost.

Your reading and interpretation of the translation is correct mwb1100.
19  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Is it wise for amateur to invest time in NET Framework languages? on: November 21, 2014, 10:07:37 AM
What other languages can you advise me to learn? I considered Java but it's looks too hard.

I don't think C# is simpler to learn than Java. I'd say they are comparable in size and complexity, both the languages and the accompanying libraries.
20  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Is it wise for amateur to invest time in NET Framework languages? on: November 21, 2014, 10:04:40 AM
The big drawback to .NET is people won't try your program if they have to install yet another framework.  It tends to make you use what you figure most people already have on like .NET 2.x features.

That might have been a consideration at one point... but that point is pretty far gone.  You can plan on .NET 4 at least currently (and that's what I code to).

If you want to target Mono as well you need to check what's available there though (e.g. no WPF).

If the question is about learning a programming language which is useful for a hobby programmer, I would not recommend learning Eiffel. While Eiffel is being used for production applications it is nevertheless mostly a niche language used primarily in academia (and probably only at ETHZ). Eiffel has interesting concepts from a computer science point of view (primarily its strong support for design-by-contract, and lately its verification support through AutoProof), but the useful ones have already found their way into more common languages.

I'm a bit surprised most of the discussion is about the legal implications, instead of the technical implications of this announcement, here on donation lawy.. ähm coders.

We didn't get any gifts at all at the above mentioned event Sad

Wow! I think this is the most surprising, most amazing, most everything announcement from MS I have seen in my whole career!

I was at a public MS PR event just yesterday where there was no mention of this whatsoever.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: android app to set my vibration mode on specific hours on: October 22, 2014, 01:54:13 PM
This is because I set it to set my sound profile to silent, from 9am to 5pm when I am at work, and it didn't restore it at 5pm to 'normal profile'!
How can I do this?
Do I have to set another event trigger to set my phone to 'normal sound profile' each weekday after 5pm?
Same with WiFi, while it disabled wifi while I was at work, it didn't re-enable it, at 5pm.
Any hint?
That is exactly how you should configure that. Create another trigger running from 5pm, to restore earlier settings. The standard provided triggers actually pointed me in that direction from the first time I looked at it...
And Llama actually tells you to do that (in a bubble popping up at the bottom for a short moment).
