Since you talked about, I looked at my profile and I been here 17 years as of the 8th.

If it doesn't resolve the issue, we'll evaluate whether the latest round of anti-speculative-execution patches we've had to apply could somehow be responsible. (The performance impact of this fix is estimated to be just a couple of percent, but a banana on a football field isn't even that much and yet woe unto the quarterback who steps on it.)

Bambams and I have been here almost exactly the same amount of time. We're one member number apart. That's why we're destined to be mortal enemies.

...

How come no ones plays my game. >:(

Add your game to the list of all the Krampus games I haven't played. Then add that to the fact that I'm still programming mine. And on top of that, I have a chess server I need to program, and my gui library, and my portfolio, etc...

I just don't have time to play games anymore. :(

I've been look into task-based architectures for parallel game engines.

I still love the D language.

And... it's been eight years of going to doctors constantly and still not having a diagnosis. :/ I'm at the point currently where I get sick after eating literally anything.

I can smell old timers lurking in the shadows.

Hey! I take a shower every month, whether I need it or not! >:(

“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.”

Yay, I can login again. Geez. This is getting ridiculous. Matthew, this site needs more active members to maintain it. It is getting ridiculous.

In addition to buying a house, my wife and I just got a puppy. I do not recommend either.

The house is falling apart more and more every day. We notice more and more blemishes each day that we didn't notice when we did our initial walk-throughs and decision making or even after living in it for 2 months.

The puppy is a goddamn nightmare. Doesn't let you sleep. Regularly urinates indoors, despite efforts to control water intake and schedule routine visits outside. He is getting more and more bold with each day. It's a "Golden Rottie" AKA a Golden Retriever mixed with a Rottweiler. Though its colours are more close to a Golden right now, it is reminding me more and more of a Rottweiler instead. Anyway, it's a lot of goddamn work and stress, and I don't recommend it. Seriously. If kids are worse than this I don't know how every father ever didn't shoot themselves in the face. >:(

I also changed jobs. I don't want to jinx it, but so far so good. >:(

For puppies, until they're about 6 months old, keep them in a kennel at all times while unsupervised, with scheduled, specific times being taken outside. Whenever you take them out of the kennel, the first thing you do must always be to take them outside as well. After they're 6 months old and have been doing this for 2 months, you can relax it a bit. Once they've been on this schedule for 4 months, even the dumbest dog I've ever had has been completely house trained, and no longer requires the kennel at all.

Puppies can't hold their bladder any better than toddlers can. Make sure you have reasonable expectations.

Only use positive reinforcement with the exception of obvious stuff like growling, biting, stealing food. Instead of scolding a dog when it pees, give it praise when it goes outside.

Quick question: why are frame-buffer textures upside-down in OpenGL? I'm working with WebGL 2, and when I draw a texture to a quad on the screen it draws perfectly fine. However, once I draw that same texture to a frame-buffer and then draw the frame-buffer's texture to the screen, it comes out upside-down. Is this by design? If so, why? I know I can apply a simple scale and translation to fix it, but why is it like this by default?

Maybe I can just edit the texture coordinates such that they'll always draw upside-down, with or without a frame-buffer. Then at least it'll be consistent. Then I could just flip it with some sweet, sweet matrix math.

Because X,Y,Z arbitrary and by convention, so different people choose different conventions.

OpenGL is uses right-handed.

DirectX is uses left-handed.

That's for Z.

Likewise, because OpenGL was a CAD graphics framework, they had "up" be up. Whereas oldschool gamer bros think of it in terms of rasterscanning from top-left to bottom right.

I don't remember who gave me this Christmas hat, but I remember that it was eternal.

I knew it. I can smell old timers lurking in the shadows.

Yeah, I am now I guess. Though I still don't see 55 as old. I was just looking at what I looked like when I first joined here as opposed to what I look like now (or as of December 2019 anyhow)...

Me, taken March 22, 2002 (I joined these forums in April, though I was on the email list longer than that, if anyone remembers those)...

This is what happens between 37 and 55! Yeesh...
