Hope they have a new year ready for us. There's only an hour and a half left of the old one.

Oh yes, what are your new year w*h?

Still 1440x900. I will also continue to push back against superstitious nonsense directed at me.

“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.”

Do that. And push back hot stones, too.

My resolution is to make more Allegro releases.

I don't make resolutions, but if I did it would be to survive my next semester at school. I'm taking 4 classes, which is a lot for me, and I couldn't handle that many last semester with one of them being a brutal history class. And to those who say 4 isn't a lot I don't give a shit. :P My school still considers 3 full time.

I have not yet opened any support tickets in 2015, therefore nothing has been resolved and I have no resolutions to report for this new year.

I may open a support ticket with Back to the Future for my Hoverboard though.... >:(

I intend to get one of these once they are released here, so my 2015 resolution will be 2560x1440 (higher than the resolution of my 27" monitor!).

I am surprised at all the resolutions below 1920x1080.

That was not at all what I was expecting. :o

1920x1200 (has been that for several years now).

TODO 2015:
make game(s)

edit: P.S.: HNY!

Still rockin' 1280x800 here on my lappie, but I can get 1920x1080 on it through my HDTV over HDMI, which is nice.

Happy New Year (if you believe in the Gregorian calender anyhow) to you all as well.

I'm still at 1920x1080. I still miss my 4:3 ratio though but have adjusted.

My New Years resolution is to stop making resolutions.

I DO want to get my Deluxe Pacman 2 game completed this year (preferably in the next few months). It's Allegro 5, coded 100% with C (yes C, not using a C++ compiler but the GNU C compiler with the 2011 standard of C, -std=C11). ;)

My resolution remains to be 2048x1152 and I like it that way. >:(

I don't wish to make any New Year's resolutions, but goals I aspire to pursue and perhaps conquer this year include:

  • Learning to efficiently use Emacs (for the SLIME lisp development environment). This may involve a Vim-like wrapper.

  • Learning to write real programs in Common Lisp.

  • Developing my own toy lisp (interpreter and/or compiler).

  • Developing an Allegro 5 developer console addon.

  • Developing an Allegro 5 Embeddable Common Lisp (ECL) addon.

  • Affording to make my truck payments and keep it on the road (insurance, etc.).

  • Affording to keep my motorcycle on the road (insurance, etc.).

  • Perhaps trading my 500 CC motorcycle for a 600 CC super-sport or maybe settling for a 650 CC sport.

  • Covering 10000 km mileage on a motorcycle in a single year (last year I think I put on about 4800 km and 3700 km the year before that). (This one is somewhat of a stretch unless I get highly motivated on weekends or get extra vacation time..)

  • I should probably read through my Algorithms In C book.

I set up Pidgin with IRC, Hangouts, and FB Chat and the locked myself out of my own FB account (on purpose).

My resolution is to not use any social media sites for a year. Exceptions are Stack Overflow, A.cc, GitHub, and anything work related. This is a year of code for me, and I intend to get shit done(TM). ;D

Furinkan, nice idea.

(Sorry, wrong thread.)

For all of the people that want to be running GNU (+Linux), but are holding off because they want to game:

{"name":"609143","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/c\/e\/cef1469b64049788af457ad8e0f756ab.png","w":2048,"h":1152,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/c\/e\/cef1469b64049788af457ad8e0f756ab"}609143

Note that the icons on the desktop are native applications, except for the SteamWine. SteamWine is Steam running on Wine, which exists mainly for Skyrim, and that too works (thanks to Elias for tipping me off a year or more ago). Note the "notification icon" for Steam running in my tray. That is the native port. I predominantly play Counter-Strike: Source with that.

The point is, I have overwritten Windows entirely with a mostly free software system and I don't miss it. I can still game thanks to Valve (and Wine). I have a perfectly valid Windows 7 license sitting on a shelf. I have no interest in using it.

My system is "mostly" free[dom] software because unfortunately much "multimedia" (i.e., audio/video) still requires patented software to consume. I have no choice other than to use non-free software to consume it. And that is something that can be changed. Free formats exist that are at least good enough.

Perhaps the best New Years resolution that you can make is to use only free (libre) software (or at least, go out of your way to avoid non-free software and never pay for the non-free software that you do use).

That includes Web services as well. Don't use Web sites like Facebook that use proprietary software and are definitely spying on you and sharing^Wselling your information. I think that Google (including YouTube, et. al.) are also falling into the evil category so avoid using those services as much as possible too.

The way has been paved. Take advantage and jump ship before things revert. >:(
