 It's Been Fun, Goodbye

 Slartibartfast Member #8,789 June 2007 Dennis said:Let's check if there's a pattern. The first one was in late 2001 (12/2001), the second one in early 2003 (03/2003), the third one in late 2006 (10/2006) and this one in late 2010 (12/2010). If you look at the years you get a(n) = n*n - a(n-1) and then add 2000
 Tobias Dammers Member #2,604 August 2002 Dennis said: Hm... nope no pattern there. Or none that is too obvious. Let's see... 15, 44, 51. The first digit is in fact a fibonacci-like sequence An = (An-1 + An-2) % 10, with A0 = 1 and A1 = 4. 1 + 4 = 5. So the next ten's digit must be 9. The second digits follow the reverse sequence, so the definition is something like An = (10 - An-1 - An-2) % 10. Next one's digit by this logic is 4. So I say we're going to see another similar thread in 94 months, thus at the end of 2017. ---Me make music: Triofobie---"We need Tobias and his awesome trombone, too." - Johan Halmén
 superstar4410 Member #926 January 2001 So based on your pattern detection when do you think we should expect the thread to re occur by the original poster? Don't take yourself too seriously, but do take your responsibilities very seriously.

 Dennis Member #1,090 July 2003 Interesting... maybe by 2017 A5 will have that al_create_game() method. (No I don't have anything even remotely meaningful to contribute.)

(No I don't have anything even remotely meaningful to contribute.)By 2017 we might have an Allegro 6, so anything is possible.If you calculate in the advancements from Allegro 3 to Allegro 4, and then Allegro 4 to Allegro 5, well, its nearly an exponential scale. Of course its taken about 6-8 years of any work at all to get Allegro 5 to where it is. So to get an Allegro 6 out the door by 2017, we'd probably need to start now. -- Thomas Fjellstrom - [website] - [email] - [Allegro Wiki] - [Allegro TODO]"If you can't think of a better solution, don't try to make a better solution." -- weapon_S"The less evidence we have for what we believe is certain, the more violently we defend beliefs against those who don't agree" -- https://twitter.com/neiltyson/status/592870205409353730
 Mark Oates Member #1,146 March 2001 Thomas Fjellstrom said:So to get an Allegro 6 out the door by 2017, we'd probably need to start now. I'll start: ```void al_create_game() { // todo } ```
 Vanneto Member #8,643 May 2007 That wont do... I will expand it a bit:```typedef enum GameType { Rpg, Monday, Wednesday, RTS }; void al_create_game (GameType type) { // todo } ``` In capitalist America bank robs you.
 superstar4410 Member #926 January 2001 We sure we want to make this a void function? Don't take yourself too seriously, but do take your responsibilities very seriously.
 Dennis Member #1,090 July 2003 Great, here are my contributions... good point about the void return type.#SelectExpand 1typedef enum GameType 2{ 3 MMORPG, 4 Monday, 5 Wednesday, 6 RTS, 7 YoMommaWouldLikeIt, 8 MinecraftClone, 9 CrappyMiniGameLookingLikeNoEffortAtAllWentIntoItsCreation, 10 YetAnotherGameNobodyWantsToPlay, 11 TicTacToe, 12 Tetris, 13 SomeAdultStuff // may be combined with any of the other game types 14}; 15 16GAME* al_create_game(GameType type) 17{ 18 // todo 19 return NULL; 20}
 bamccaig Member #7,536 July 2006 Somebody should just write a minimalist pong clone, compile it into allegro-game-5.1.so, and make the entry point al_create_game(). It would be a fun inside joke to use whenever. It would certainly put allegro ahead when n00bs ask how hard it is to create a game with Allegro. -- I mean the best with what I say. It doesn't always sound that way.
 Matthew Leverton Supreme Loser January 1999 You assume they know how to link against a library.
 bamccaig Member #7,536 July 2006 Yeah, you're right. Hold on, I have the C standards committee on the phone...You know, we could patch GCC and MinGW to link to preinstalled Allegro libraries by default... For teh n00bs. I'm not going to do it, but you feel free. -- I mean the best with what I say. It doesn't always sound that way.
 piccolo Member #3,163 January 2003 This was so Funny I had a nice evil Laugh going.quitting is for the weak. the strong adjust an keep trucking.This remides me of the Simson EP where homer was trying to get a cup cake out of a Boobytraped ice box that shocked him when he touched it.It also reminds we when i had to convice a girl in college not to give up her programing 4 year degree when she has only one semester left Todo. wow-------------------------------i am who you are not am i
 Karadoc ~~ Member #2,749 September 2002 Hmm. I first used C++ more than 12 years ago, and I still don't know it very well. Should I quit too? -----------

 piccolo Member #3,163 January 2003 Vanneto said: He goes do something he enjoys and is better at. Don't you think that counts as adjusting? Take Me for example. My spelling is crap. piccolo said: This remides me of the Simson EP where homer was trying to get a cup cake out of a Boobytraped ice box that shocked him when he touched it. I used a word that was easier to spell. at work I use text to speach apps to make sure I got the right words.Take for example that girl i talked out. With the her degree she can become a business analyses, or a project manager. These job are still in the field but do less programing. wow-------------------------------i am who you are not am i
 Vanneto Member #8,643 May 2007 Using an easier word doesn't make it right. There is a huge difference between an icebox and a cupcake. In capitalist America bank robs you.
 Arthur Kalliokoski Second in Command February 2005 I was stuck on why an ice box would shock somebody, then I realized he meant "refrigerator". “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”― Robert A. Heinlein
 piccolo Member #3,163 January 2003 in some countries its called an ice box wow-------------------------------i am who you are not am i
 Neil Black Member #7,867 October 2006 piccolo said:in some countries its called an ice box An ice box is, exactly as it says, a box with ice in it. It's not synonymous with "refrigerator".*They may be used interchangeably in some places, though.* Funnily enough, I had to use Firefox's spell checker to spell "refrigerator" properly.

They have since evolved, but they were called ice boxes for ages after they stopped using ice directly to cool things. -- Thomas Fjellstrom - [website] - [email] - [Allegro Wiki] - [Allegro TODO]"If you can't think of a better solution, don't try to make a better solution." -- weapon_S"The less evidence we have for what we believe is certain, the more violently we defend beliefs against those who don't agree" -- https://twitter.com/neiltyson/status/592870205409353730
 Evert Member #794 November 2000 Neil Black said:It's not synonymous with "refrigerator". I think his point was that in some languages it's the literal translation of refrigerator.
