I do not have an good response for this thread but feel it a pity it did not garner more responses before the Thread Reaper had his way.

So uhh... where is Matt? This is the longest I've seen him go without posting.

He is too embarrassed to admit that he outsourced the development of a.cc and actually has no idea how to change the thread lock time.

In practice this thread just proves Matt's (silent) point. We've kept this thread alive for almost 3 months... :-/:-X

That if we really wanted to keep threads alive, we would assume collective spamming duties?

I resent the implication that this is spam! :) #triggered #lightgreypostsmatter

[EDIT] If Matthew ever retroactively creates a hashtag system for allegro.cc, I will be very embarrassed :)

I need to tell the people in my real-world life that I have no plans on buying Christmas presents. In return, I kindly ask not to receive any. Just let me wear pajamas and enjoy time with family.

This announcement is not important enough to warrant a thread... or even a post, really. Carry on.

What's wrong with Java? :'(

Our local cinema invited the orchestra I play in to perform the soundtrack live at the unveiling! ;D

But we couldn't do it because they had massively underestimated how much space an orchestra needs ;D

Also, Carrie Fisher's daughter makes a brief easter egg cameo.

For those who saw it already:

r += f;

Star Wars discussion probably belongs in its own thread. I've been advised I ought to finish watching the original three before embarking on the new one, so I for one don't want spoilers :)

My New Years Resolution ... will ofcourse be 4K.... but I also plan to use a lot more Global Variables and Global State in my code. Despite what Bambam has lectured about Globals, they are actually incredibly great and lead to less refactoring in the long run and an overall simpler and cleaner codebase.

In fact, had ML used a global $threadTimeout, we would not have needed this thread!
