Re: Anyone here know how to use jQuery?

Don't use onload calls; there are issues with doing so. jQuery provides a "ready" action for this: $('document').ready(function () { /* Loop through each .content div and replace as needed. */ $(".content").each(function() { var c = $(this), html = c.html().replace(/\[([^\]]*)\]/...

Does anyone have a copy of these tiles, by chance?

Re: Ints vs Shorts

Something I read a couple years back, which might no longer be true, I don't know, is that some compilers (javac too, iirc) might even actually pad out a short to a full byte to keep the memory allocation "even". Apparently it is faster/more effecient to request memory that way. Again, I d...

Re: 5 reasons to look for something other than an iPhone

Have you given the Palm Pre (WebOS) a test drive? A non-tech friend of mine (who has an iTouch) swears up and down that the Pre "destroys" the iTouch (even without having 1 million aps.) I figure a true *nix nerd would want to support something like WebOS. *shrug* Yup, played with it. It'...

Re: something i have to get off my chest

by all alignments i meant like chaotic good. since 4e only has good and lawful good I actually like the alignment system in 4E, and here's why: it has Unaligned. Personally, I disdain the more rigid alignment systems; they're artificial pigeon holes of behavior. In prior AD&D 2E games, I did aw...

Re: 5 reasons to look for something other than an iPhone

I am far from a fan of Apple for some of their business practices. I am far from a fan of MS for most, if not a bit more, of the similar business practices. About the only company I can honestly say I like is Canonical of Ubuntu fame. Corporations have to make money and that is ever increasingly bec...

Re: Convert to C# and WPF?

Just to be clear, I'm happy that Maptool is Java. ;) If for no other reason than I can easily improve my knowledge of the language from the code, but also because that cross-platform aspect is a no-brainer to me. For better or worse, right now, Java is the best tool for cross-platform.

Re: Letting off some steam...

Heh. My linux server was rooted last week (t0rn rootkit from the looks of it). It was an Ubuntu 8.10 system, more or less up to date, and I'm -still- not sure how they got in* and how the rootkit was installed. It has shaken my faith about linux a lot, BUT after way too many years doing corporate IT...

Re: Alignment in D&D

Ages old topic, it seems. I've always disliked alignment and have more or less done away with it in D&D. I was pleased to see 4E has an 'unaligned' choice. Personally, I found the notion silly and never, ever has it mapped to real life. One man's trash is another man's treasure; likewise, what i...

Re: Convert to C# and WPF?

And the new announcement about MeeGo (Intel and Nokie joining forces on a mobile platform for Linux) where the C++-based Qt4 library will be the GUI of choice could make for some very fast (and portable) code. The code would need to be compiled for each target platform, but still... Having develope...

Re: replace() regex and groups, does it work?

Aww, that would suck if so. Back references are some of the best features of regex. That looks correct to me too, btw, based on various regex engines I've used. I haven't looked at the Java regex lib in a while, but I'm pretty sure it's based on the perl engine, so that should be correct. :/

Re: Thoughts on 1.4, Javascript, and Game Implementations

Most new languages are going with the "var arg" way of handling parameters. Python and Ruby being the biggest two I can think of. Python allows you to even specify grouping positional params vs. keyword params: def method(name, char_class, *args, **kwargs): for arg in args: print arg for k...

Re: Tables with JSON arrays

As long as the table cell could handle arbitrary sting lengths (I bet they don't) I can't see why you couldn't do so.

Re: MapTool 1.3 Development Build 63

I'd like to see my chat clean-up code make it in. (It basically div'd everything (not everything was being wrapped in div's sadly) with correct classes and id's to make parsing chat logs much easier. Nothing special, but it would be useful.)
