IIRC rainlendar has (or used to have) a pretty active community - plenty of skins available already so maybe something suitable already exists

How about some cool features that DC could add/host:

I don't think it's appropriate to place any further impositions on DC (mouser) under the guise of a celebration, else we'll have to run fundraisers in January and February

How about contacting some of the sites that are sympathetic to DC (like Ghacks?).  Could be they'd like to contribute/participate...

The friends I know do just what is intended... use recording among friends and family at certain events.  But that doesn't mean that they don't wear them at other times... and that seems to be what people get paranoid about- even though they are doing nothing wrong.  No filming, no nothing.  How is that right?

unfortunately it's the same old story where the few spoil things for the many.

too many people still don't realise that the internet is forever, and what someone thinks is harmless or a bit of a joke now could have real consequences far into the future

that and the fact that the media have trained us to be paranoid about both the technology and the people who use it (for whatever reason).

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?

12  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
