  1. From how the whole click to play thing was that's why I thought it took out ABP as I have never used the click to play thing at all. The only places I go where stuff is auto is YouTube and Tumblr (really wish I could figure out how to disable them without blocking the site it's on). Other than that I don't know what this click to play thing may affect.

    I haven't used FF in a while but if there is an issue it would be with ABP and the latest version of that so you should check their site out. Only thing would be that ABP isn't updated to work with the new FF. Other than that not sure what you could be talking about.


    Also are you trying to block ads or videos from playing?

  2. What I find incredibly stupid is, at least at the school I'm going to, they require BC calc to take programming classes. Not all programming requires that much math. And if your goal is a field that does you'll take the math.

    I wanted to be a software engineer but heard I'll only need algebra level math yet I'd be required to take a calculus course and was basically told by someone else that with my problem (I'm dyscalculic, like dyslexia but with numbers) it would be almost impossible for me so I kinda don't know where to go now, I'm really good with troubleshooting but that's the extent of my talents :/

  3. Well web design isn't really programming but if you want to learn you're going to need to read some CSS3 and HTML5 tutorials online.


    I hope this doesn't offend you but if you aren't good at mathematics don't try to do 3D Game Programming.

    Most types of Programming will not require you to be good at mathematics, you just have to be good with logic problems but there are two exceptions to that: Low Level Programming (ASM, C, etc..) and 3D Game Programming.


    If you still want to pursue 3D game making check out Unity3D or UDK, if you would like to do 2D game making checkout tutorials on making games in Python.

    Lol I know, web design isn't really in line with programming but do you know what math would be required for 3D game programming and the like? I heard everything from just basic algebra (which I can do) and then all the way up to calculus (which I can't do)

  4. What type of programming would you like to do?


    For gaming you should learn C and Unity.

    For web apps (eg. Facebook, twitter, etc..) you should checkout HTML5, Javascript and Node.JS (this is server side but uses javascript).

    For desktop software you should learn C# (For windows), if you're on Mac checkout Obj-C and Coca and if you want to dev for Linux Python would be your best shot.

    I think I'd like to start with more web stuff, maybe start with web design before I move to actual apps but yes I have always wanted to learn game programming but I'm terrible at math and I heard that 2D gaming is okay but 3D gaming is where you really need the math

  5. I am a Computer Programmer. I started when I was 8 years old with Visual Basic and now I know: PHP, Node.JS, CoffeScript, ECMASCRIPT (Javascript), Java, Python, C, C++, UnityScript, BASIC, Ruby and some more.


    When I was 8 I started with Visual Basic and was creating some very basic Internet browsers using the Trident API.


    When I got to 10 I started my hacking phase. I had hacked Club Penguin by interfacing with their flash API via Visual Basic. I had also hacked AFL Fansay Football to give me unlimited money (Aussies will know).


    Then when I got to 12, I think that was when I became a real programmer. I learn't C and Python.


    When I reached 14 that was kinda my peak of programming skills. I learn't Ecmascript, PHP, Ruby, C++, Node.JS (My favourite), Java and some more all within that one year.


    If there is anyone that would like some advice, help, tips, etc.. on programming just reply to this and i'm more than willing to help out wink.gif.

    I'd love to start getting in to programming. I have books but I never know where to really start. I've dabbled in HTML, Java, C++ etc but never really got anywhere with it


    Any tips or advice would be great, I heard Python is a good starting point since it's simple and easier to read

  6. Tried to use hubby's computer, and found it has problem that made playing

    DC impossible.

    After you start it up, it will suddenly freeze. When you power off and try the

    restart, it will work for a while and then does the freeze again. Norton 360

    says nothing found. Dell tech help says memory test runs okay. He had a

    system restore going back to when he got it 4 years ago, but that didn't

    seem to solve the problem.

    One time he said he got the whole monitor screen to go into black, grey, and

    blue lines all across the screen. But Dell also says video card was replaced

    2 years ago and should be fine.

    Any ideas?

    (These are definitely not caused by DC playing).

    It definitely sounds like a hardware issue to me. You wouldn't happen to know the specs of the computer would you? It might help if you could post them


    Also Norton is pretty terrible around the Tech support community, just letting you know. Norton blocks a lot of things for no reason, doesn't catch as much as other free AV's and is a censorkip.gif* to get rid of if you want to which kinda makes it sound like a virus in general lol. Not to mention is constantly asks you to buy it if you're using the trial and it's expired

  7. Shriek.


    I use firefox. I changed my dragcave password a while ago, and while it was OK with it for logging on and off, it had forgotten it for actions.


    So I told it to forget it, as their forums suggest that doing that will mean that you will get the "remember" prompt again.


    Does it hell... sad.gif


    Anyone know how to make it remember again ?

    You might want to try reading here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/passwo...hange-passwords


    You may need to remove it from the exceptions list

  8. 16 GB. I'm not doing things similar enough to cause me to see any pattern at all. It's fairly random, though particularly during YouTube.




    All my my drivers (AFAIK) and my BIOS are up to date.

    Tried updating stuff such as your browser (which are you using?) or flash? 16 GB should be way more than enough unless somethings wrong with your RAM

  9. SOOOOOO frustrated at C++.


    So, I'm new to C++, was looking around and decided to use Dev C++ for a compiler, as it is the easiest one tutorial-wise. But... when I compile ANYTHING, AVG protection detects a Trojan Horse. Can someone either tell me how to uninstall it, a better compiler, or a way to eliminate this problem? Thanks. smile.gif

    Not sure why it's doing that but you can easily google how to uninstall AVG, MSE (Microsoft security essentials) is seriously all you need


    Here is how to uninstall AVG from their site http://www.avg.com/ww-en/faq.num-5172


    And MSE http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows...ls-all-versions

  10. Okay i've got a problem


    So, I need to record some audio clips. My microphone actually has pretty dang good sound quality, but there's a very loud buzz/hum in the background that's basically level to my voice. And the audio clips need to be good quality.


    I've tried every solution I can find but nothing works. ._. I need the audio clips by the 30th.


    I don't exactly know what information I should give because I'm admittedly not very good with these sorts of things. I can't even figure out what's causing it... but I am 100% positive that it's not background noise.

    Any ideas?

    Try this

  11. So I've been getting a lot of random freezes on my built desktop and I've been trying to find the culprit. I get a BSOD and it says that it is a hardware error.


    Soo. Any way to easily find out which piece of hardware is being wonky? I'm thinking the RAM could be the most likely culprit?

    How much RAM do you have right now and what are you running also what kinds of things are you doing when it freezes?

  12. I have a 64 bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. I suppose this could possibly be considered a new build considering I may have to replace the motherboard, PSU, cooling , etc. I'm guessing it will be around $700 to buy everything, unless my current CPU is enough and won't bottleneck anything.

    If you're going to spend $700 you can look at the $700 build here http://www.logicalincrements.com/?aid=cr it's in the very good range and the video card is a 650ti boost however you're not going to be able to max out all settings with a single 650ti especially stuff like Crysis, Batman, BF 3 and 4 etc but you can probably get decent FPS, enough to enjoy the game. I'd say even go for a 660 if you can afford it, would be better than two 650's. Also depends what games you want to play

  13. I am considering upgrading my computer. I currently have this:

    Video Card: Radeon HD 5770

    RAM: 4 GB

    CPU: Phenom II X4 840


    Considering upgrading to this:

    Video Card: Radeon HD 7850

    RAM: 8-16 GB

    CPU: AMD FX-6300


    My monitor resoloution is 1680 x 1050.

    I want to be able to run pretty much every game at max settings. I also need more RAM because I like to play Terraria with my cousin, but it would be pointless to rent a server for the two of us so I use my computer as a server. I like to be able to multi task at the same time. Running the  server with the two of us alone uses about 80% of my current RAM.  Would this be a worthwhile upgrade?

    Are you strictly upgrading or building? And what is your budget?


    I'd also recommend taking a look at this http://www.logicalincrements.com/


    and just FYI taken from the site "All these builds are focused on optimum gaming. If you do not game, get a lesser GPU and use the saved $$$ to upgrade something else, such as adding an SSD"

  15. Dumbo rats are freaking adorable! If one is showing aggression to the other you might try getting them neutered. I know it sounds weird but the loss of the extra testosterone could calm Badger down a bit.


    Yeah I know tongue.gif He's new to this cage and they're just establishing their dominance right now but yup I'd definitely get him neutered if it got worse. Just in case anyone wants to see what they look like Badger and Fievel



  16. I live for scary games so I've played a lot and some have nice jump scares but the scariest game I've ever played has to be when I was about 9 or 10 and played Silent Hill 1 for the first time, could only play that game for about half an hour before I got a stomach ache.


    Otherwise I laugh every time I get scared so no games have ever been really scary for me but for all those people saying Slender is scary, try playing Slender Tubbies tongue.gif

  17. So, for college/graphic design reasons I will soon be getting a Mac to replace my older PC laptop. But I've never gone through the process of getting a new computer before, so I have a couple of questions.


    First, how do the files from the old laptop get transferred to a new one? I don't want to buy one of the cords that you plug into both computers at once, so my most obvious option is flashdrives/Dropbox. But that seems too time-consuming and impractical- if I take my PC to the Apple store where I buy the Mac, can they transfer everything?


    Second, what about my iTunes library? Most of my music is off of YouTube so that's not the important part, but iTunes is where I have over a hundred Doctor Who episodes and obviously, I can't lose those. Is there a process I have to do in order to move the library or will the Apple store do it? Since Apple owns iTunes and all that, I assumed that they will ask me if I have an iTunes account to be synced with the Mac, but I want to be sure.


    Finally, I HAVE to transfer my Photoshop program. I've looked up some stuff about transferring the license cross-platform, and some people say that it's a difficult process while others say it's easy. Has anyone here done that? What's the best way?


    Sorry there's so much text- I really need to know what to do, and my Dad knows about this stuff but whenever I try to have a discussion with him it's impossible. And there's a lot of conflicting information on the Internet. So it's kind of getting frustrating.

    Do you have to get a Mac? Buying a 16-32GB Flash drive would be a good idea if your internet isn't the best for uploading files to dropbox. I've never heard of Apple transferring your stuff for you so I don't know about that and I personally wouldn't trust them with my stuff.


    If your music library is from downloaded YouTube videos then that won't be transferred and you'll have to transfer all the individual music files to the new mac. As far as the Doctor Who episodes, anything you've purchased via iTunes will stay on your iTunes account.


    As far as Photoshop goes maybe take a look at this http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_fa...cs5_mac_license

  18. Gateway of the Mind

    In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God.

    They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have “nothing left to live for” was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed.* Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts.


    Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn’t even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man’s concerns.


    Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study.


    After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded by hundreds of voices that refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams.


    Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his non-functional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled “No heaven, no forgiveness” for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God.


    After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. For two weeks, the subject had to be manually rehydrated due to the constant crying. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study.


    He whispered “I have spoken with God, and He has abandoned us” and his vital signs stopped.


    There was no apparent cause of death.

    * follow-up study, 2000: Dr G.F., Department of Neurology, [hospital name witheld], San Francisco, CA. Recent study of a degenerative disease which targets the motor function and cognitive decline often leads to 'hallucinations' of the deceased. The death of targeted cells and chemicals in the brain by this disease leads to a loss of smell, among other senses. The cause of the disease is unknown. Hallucinations present in 39.8% of the patients, falling into three categories: a sensation of a presence (person), a sideways passage (commonly of an animal) or illusions. Present in 25.5% of patients (an isolated occurrence in 14.3%), formed visual hallucinations present in 22.2% (isolated in 9.3%) and auditory hallucinations present in 9.7% (isolated in 2.3%). Continuing study in San Francisco, CA. 2003–present

  19. Seems the only bad restriction to the XboxOne is the 24 hr internet thing, as far as the used games go it's up to developers if they want to make their games not able to be resold and I'm betting the majority if any will use that option

  20. I live in Arizona in a city called Sun City so I love everything other than sunny because it's always hot and sunny here and being sunny all the time is just freakin boring. I voted thunderstorms because I love wind, rain, thunder and lightning.

  21. Was a fan of the 360 and hated the PS3. The PS2 was the last great console from Sony but by the looks of it I'll probably be getting the PS4 as the Xbox is just too much of a hassle for a console, might as well get a gaming PC.
