Don't you just love regular expressions? It's about as close to English readable as Swahili is.
I was trying to generate a php 'preg_split' line of code that would split a sentence based on both comma and space, but keep the separators. I finally figured out that you must have parentheses in the expression, leaving me with what looks like a set of breasts within the quotes:
preg_split('((,)|( ))', $mydata, -1, PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE | PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY); What happened to the person's left nipple? I guess it split.
Just noticed this while playing the open beta tonight. When casting a particular 'buff' as a Shaolin, the animation is a Nazi Swastika. When viewed from the normal camera angle of behind your character, it's oriented the right direction. In this screenshot it's reversed.
Typically I stream all my music online, but after getting the Violent Femmes CD 'Viva Wisconsin', I went looking for something to play it with that did better than xmms.
I thought Violent Femmes were a one-hit-wonder band, but turns out they've had a long and semi-successful career.
Here's my review of the different media players... First, XMMS
XMMS is great, and the way it does flawless streaming of all the online content I listen to is just amazing. It's small, themeable and cool looking. Unfortunately it doesn't have a decent playlist manager and without finding a plugin, it doesn't do crossfades - seamlessly blending one song to the next. If you are a Windows user, it looks a lot like Winamp, but it hasn't really been updated in years, and it lacks some of the features you demand in a media manager/player today.
For listening to a ripped CD, I got these horrible dead spots between songs that were originally recorded live, so it sounded awful. Not to mention the playlist situation. These two things alone caused me to reject it.
Wow, even going to the executive level of complaint took forever. I finally got my new static IP today. I just finished configuring my Linux firewall / router to handle both the T-1 and the DSL connections so I can fail over if one goes down. I'll be writing a little tutorial on that in the next couple of days.
You may have noticed by my recent posts that I've installed Beryl on my system. Beryl is an OpenGL accelerated desktop system for Linux. For nearly a decade, graphics cards in computers have rarely had their potential tapped. The few hours a day that a user might spend gaming is about the only time that the full potential of a graphics card is used.
