Thread locks too soon

I just don't think Facebook is the place to go if you want 'real' friendships.

Well, being "friends" on Facebook no more constitutes real friendship than "following" someone on Twitter makes one a stalker (at least not inherently). :P

Yeah, I'm mad. Mad like a hatter. ;)

Haha nice. :)

Also, why'd you remove me on Facebook, Neil?

Because debating with your friends about everything I post is not something I enjoy. Actually, the other day I removed a couple people and quite a few pages (religious groups and news groups) as well as I grow weary of debating every post I make. I want to spend less time on Facebook arguing with people and more time programming. You're welcome to refriend if you wish, I don't consider Facebook any sort of gauge as to a genuine friendship. I guess I could have simply blocked all your friends who start up debates instead. <shrug> It's all a symptom of the time of year and how it negatively effects me I guess.

Speaking of programming, been reading a great series of tutorials on modern OpenGL which is very well written. Highly recommended.

Actually, I have more than double the people in followers on Facebook than I have friends, which I find funny for some reason. I think I have like, less than 80 friends (as opposed to my wife's over 400) and like over 170 followers.

Here's a thought. If Matthew would promise that this particular thread would never be locked, would the discussion die?

No. This thread is eternal. My great grandchildren will participate in this thread. 8-)

This thread will die when the post_id overflows and ML refuses to change to a 64 bit primary key. ;)

Then Amarillion will start another thread called "Threads lock too soon 2: Electric Boogaloo".

Apparently the exploit is read-only access. You wouldn't be able to fix it anyway. :P But you could potentially steal the code and the database and create a cloned site and fix it there. :D

I could sure go for a little of that global warming we were promised now. -22C out today, windchill factor is around -32C I think. I have frost and ice on the inside of my window today! :o

My desktop's wireless adapter completely died two nights ago. I screwed around with it for a bit this evening seeing if I could resurrect it, but no dice. :(

Sounds like your house has shitty insulation. Or maybe just the windows are outdated. :( That must be expensive to heat.

"Global warming" is actually just "climate change", and I think you could agree that this is pretty extreme weather.

It's an old apartment building I am in. It's not too bad lately, it's heated okay. There are a few drafty spots and in my computer room it appears like the foundation has settled in such a way that the window frames are slightly warped, barely noticeable, but I think it leaves enough of a gap to let a tiny amount of air in.

Normally it's not a problem, but the temps here are currently around -25C so, when it gets that cold, it can become noticeable! ;)

Our heating is a gas heat furnace with the older water pipes that go through the place (they make a noise when they head up). Thankfully I don't pay for heat, only electricity.

We have had record low temps all across Canada (and the USA) the past week. It's been crazy cold.

What happens when the post count on this thread overflows the current year? Will we start predicting the future? ???

Yes, but only the future of an alternate universe.

I have a wife, she's plenty warm. :)

I also live in an apartment. We have electric heat with our own thermostat, and utilities are included so it doesn't cost us anything. Usually we don't even need to turn our heat on, but with these temperatures I have had it nearly cranked full in the living room.

Yup! When it his -25C or below I found I had to crank it up a little to maintain a comfort level. Housecoat came in handy as well. :)

I got used to wearing a blanket because in the summer we have the A/C running right next to my computer desk. It comes in handy during the winter months too so I just wear it all year round. :)

Funny, I had my fan on the other night when it was really cold out because there was no way I was going to lower the heat!!! ;)

We always have a big steel fan blowing in the bedroom when we sleep because in the summer you need it (the A/C isn't powerful enough), and then you get used to the very loud noise and it's too quiet without it. ;D

Yeah, we live next to a street that is as busy as a highway, so we get used to the noise. The fan isn't too bad. It's a big one though. No A/C in our place, but lots of fans.

It's funny as my wife will have a friend over that stays over night and she lives in a quiet area, I am a late nighter so she will pop into my computer room telling me about every noise she hears. :D

I warned her about our neighbour's cat, it loves to run back and forth above us. We love hearing it tearing through the house.

Edit: Been following a great tutorial on Modern OpenGL (learnopengl.com) and it's getting really interesting, and very easy to do this. Just created this with specular light maps (the shiney parts of the crates) and a point light. Neat stuff, all using shaders which are easy, modern OpenGL, not old immediate mode stuff. Pure awesomeness! :D
