1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for a project time tracker/nag tool that keeps me writing billable notes on: August 27, 2014, 04:54:56 PM
here's a tool I wrote sometime ago to nag me about tracking my time.  It might or might not suit your purposes but feel free to do with it what you will

FWIW I used it for quite a while until I the nagging got too much for me (and I realised that I was really good at ignoring the thing (ie it's called nagging for a reason)

interesting discussion, but it seems to have escaped your notice that the 'engineers' name was watson...

neighborhood isn't a finite description, so I'd be interested to know how they define it

I mean wouldn't you be peeved if you lived on a boundary, and got info about stuff at the other end of the neighbourhood (and people who aren't even your neighbours), but not the stuff next door (in you're neighbourhood).

That said, I suppose it does provide a window into what's going on locally, which could be a good incentive to get involved

hey Miles, how did you get on with Task Space?

5  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The REALITY of Virtual Flight and Other Simulators (Not Just For Simmers) on: August 11, 2014, 11:56:10 PM
I think it really depends on your level of investment

Sims will never duplicate the IRL experience because they can't duplicate the physical feedback (like shocks, noise, or the abject terror of knowing that you're plunging to a fiery death from 30000 feet, or about to plow into a concrete wall at 240kmh)

That said they can teach you routines and habits though, like the use of controls without looking at them, monitoring of instruments and the ability to understand what they're telling you while still concentrating on whatever it is your trying to do (fly a plane, drive a car, etc), emergency procedures.  They can also teach you different skills like navigating or prepare you for unfamiliar situations (emergencies, instrument ratings, a new race track etc).

I don't know any hardcore simmer's but I understand that they can (and do) take it very seriously so for them it's probably as real as it can get

Oh it wasn't so much that the big picture went out of focus. It was more a case of applying it to the wrong target...

lucky you're not a hit man (or unlucky if you are ohmy)

"Tremendous amount"? Err... Moving right along...

I actually thought 'nation wide' was the relevant quote Grin Grin Grin

I can confirm that I also received confirmation emails for both stages of the process.

Perl would do it. It's overkill, but you'll have a tool that can do just about anything.
If you're on Windows, download the latest from http://strawberryperl.com

I know nothing about perl, but I'm curious why strawberry perl  huh
